Doe Deere: From homeless to CEO

Born in Russia, Doe Deere like many in the world, saw the United States as the land of opportunity. Doe Deere recalls spending her youth watching American movies, music and marveling at mastering the English language. At the age of 17, her dream seemed to be coming true, her mother had decided to take her sister and her to the United States to finally realize and live the American Dream.

Doe Deere and her family would move to America’s largest city, New York. Doe recalls the quote, “if you can make it here, you can make it anywhere” and her goal was to make it. Unfortunately, the dream would be derailed due to her mothers accounting credentials be held back. This would force her mother to take on low paying jobs such as housekeeper, eventually, they overbearing pressure of bills became too much and Doe and her family moved into a homeless shelter in Manhattan and waiting in line at churches just to have something to eat for the day.

In 1999, a local social worker named Dorchen Leidholdt found Doe and her family, Leidholdt was a social worker pressed on aiding immigrant families who’ve fallen on hard times. With her help, Doe’s mother was able to finally find a career in accounting, her sister would go on to graduate from Colombia Universit with honors, and Doe, after Leidholdt had seen her sketches, was guided into the Fashion Institute of Technology. She recounts her struggle as an important time in her life where she learned valuable teachings in regards to staying strong and fighting through the bleakest of times.

In 2008, Doe Deere would finally see her American dream come to fruition in the form of her newly founded company “Grime Crime”. The company would become a huge success employing 35 employees and sending a message to the women of the world to stay strong and be themselves. Doe Deere thanks America for everything she gave her and reminds people that Americans don’t always start off as American, and maybe one day that immigrant will be someone that adds to the greatness of America.

Carbon Offset Programs Part Of OSI Group Sustainability Strategy

One of the most fascinating members of the OSI Group family of businesses is Creative Foods Europe. The business was established in 1991. It’s an operation that works in the creative aspect of food distribution by creating new food items, flavors, menu items, food combinations and more. When you taste something extremely delicious new, exciting and different, there’s a chance than the research chefs at Creative Foods Europe developed it.

This branch of the OSI Group family is also on the forefront of one OSI’s most critical missions — the sustainability aspect of food production and processing. That means growing food, raising farm animals, processing foods and taking care of the land and water where food it all gets done, from farm to factory.

Creative Food Services is proud that it has achieved the status of “carbon-zero company.” That means for every pound of carbon energy it burns in the process of creating new food products, it offsets that amount by reducing an equal amount of carbon that otherwise might have been burned. The result is a net zero contribution to greenhouse gases, air pollution and other environmental factors.

Part of the way this OSI Group business achieves this is the work it does in Africa. For example, Creative Food Services spearheads what it calls its African Energy Efficient Stove Project. This is an operation which builds highly efficient wood burning stoves for families in Mombasa and Kenya. The wood is gathered locally in a sustainable fashion and without deforestation. Building the stoves and gathering the wood provides jobs for local citizens. Because the stoves replace existing inefficient models, tons of annual carbon usage reduction is achieved.

This is a classic example of a sustainability practice that is the vision of OSI Group CEO Sheldon Lavin. Since taking the helm as chief executive of OSI in the mid-1970s, Lavin has understood that building a world-class food processing company simply cannot be done without a laser-like focus on environmentally sound practice.

Creative Food Services also operated a clean water project in Uganda, a wind power project in India and works in Brazil on efforts to sustain the vast rainforest regions of that country.

The origin of the Infinity Group Australia

 

 

 

For 17 years, Graeme Holm was working in the financial sector. He spent time working for the largest banks in the country. He worked with four banks in one decade. While working in the banking sector, he realized that the banks had no interests in the success of their clients. Banks were in business to make money by offering poor deals to their customers who unknowing fall into the trap of these institutions. Holm was frustrated by this act and vowed to take action that could alleviate the pain caused by banks to their customers. He also noticed that many customers were living from paycheck-to-paycheck and could only afford to repay their loans to the minimum demanded of them every month.

 

 

 

In 2013, Graeme Holm decided to quit the banking sector and create a company of his own. With the experience, he had in finance, and the passion for helping Australian families to overcome financial struggles, he was armed to create a revolution in the industry.

To accomplish this mission, the company helps their clients to create a cash-based budget, create performance reviews and offer financial coaching to families.

OSI Food Solutions: From Chicago to the World

OSI Food Solutions is about as textbook of an example of the American Dream as one could hope to find: Founded in 1909 by a German immigrant, Otto & Sons went from being a local meat supplier and butchers shop in the Chicago suburb of Oak Park, Illinois. Otto Kolschowsky ran the place with his sons, but soon enough they were a national, and then international, success.

When the new, brash idea of franchising came onto the national scene with McDonald’s in the 1950’s, OSI Food Solutions was there with them, growing in tandem with the fast food juggernaut. As long-time reliable suppliers for McDonald’s before they adopted a franchising model, OSI Food Solutions was able to keep their pace with the growing chain and maintain their position as one of the top 4 suppliers of meat for the international McDonald’s. If you see a McD’s anywhere in the world, odds are that OSI is there with them, supplying the products eaten at McDonald’s.

Adding to this initial success was the early adoption of refrigerated trucks and shipping containers in the 1950’s as well. They saw the potential for expansion in this new- at the time- technology, and began forming their own fleet of refrigerated delivery vehicles to ship their products from their main facility in Chicago across the country.

OSI Food Solutions has received many awards for safety, specifically in the U.K. The British Safety Council gave them the 2016 Globe of Honour for safety, and in 2018 recognized them with a merit at the International Safety Awards. Since 2011, they have slid up the Forbes Fortune 500, going from spot 136 (2011) to spot 58 (2016), with over $6 billion in sales revenue.

Their international expansion has resulted in increased productivity, and they bought a Tyson Chicken processing plant in Chicago to double their output of chicken products. Other acquisitions and expansions in various countries help fuel this expansion as well, such as Dutch food company Baho Foods.

OSI Food Solutions operates 65 facilities, spread over 17 countries, and employs over 20,000 workers worldwide. They also operate a Culinary Innovation Center in Aurora. They also provide their products to such companies as Subway, Pizza Hut and Starbucks. They produce a variety of meat products from hit dogs to patties to pizzas and bacon, processing pork, chicken, fish and beef, also selling vegetables and dough products as well.

Matt Badiali Focuses His Attention and Twitter Page on Silver Investments

According to Matt Badiali the time is ripe to buy silver. The investment guru just released an article on his twitter page advocating for the precious metal. According to him silver is lower than it has ever been, and as forthcoming technology will need a lot of silver, smart investors can grab themselves a very profitable future.

Cryptocurrency nabbed an impressive $190 billion last year. According to Matt Badiali decades ago this was precious metal money. In the wake of technologies strong competitive presence precious metals are losing out. Silver itself has dropped to $14.15. This makes it a very affordable business at present. So the question becomes why buy it? This is answered by the fact that industrial use of silver was around 60% last year. Silver may not be so much of a precious metal anymore, but it is still a metal that has a specific use.

Matt Badiali posits that because that use is in green energy, which is gaining more and more popularity with passing years, that the demand for silver will rise very soon. Investors who buy silver at $14.15 now will end up selling if for more later. The other reason Badiali gives if the extreme differentiation between gold and silver. Right now it takes 84 ounces of silver to buy one ounce of gold, and such a ration has only been experienced five times in the last decade. This is why buying silver is a good investment, because it can be had for such a low amount, and promises a large return.

Matt Badiali is an investment expert operating in the field of natural resources. He is a trained geologist who treks the planet to personally analyze natural resource production. He has been the voice behind many investments from freedom checks, to cannabis, to silver. He aids average-level investors make good returns, and focuses on investments that have the ability to bring in double digits. He writes two newsletters for Banyan Hill Publishing but also posts numerous articles on his twitter page. His twitter posts show the current trends he is following and give investors and idea of where to look.

Jim Larkin is a hero for his role in trade unions

Jim Larkin is historically known for being tough when it came to fighting the rights of workers. He became renowned not only in England but also in Ireland, the United States and the rest of the world. One of the most significant trade unions he led was the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union, and he led it to grow and become one of the biggest trade unions in Ireland. Read more: The Definite Biography of Big Jim Larkin – Irish Examiner and James Larkin | Wikipedia

Since he had now become a successful trade unionist, he travelled to the United States in 1914, but he was later deported because of his activities there. His Marxist theories were not allowed in the United States.

When he was young, no one knew that Larkin would achieve such success in his life because he came from a humble background. At the time his parents were living in the slums and life for young Larkin was not good at all. He did not even receive a proper formal education because his parents were low-income earners who could not afford to pay his fees. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/easterrising/profiles/po08.shtml and https://www.tripadvisor.com/Attraction_Review-g186605-d4206658-Reviews-Jim_Larkin_Statue-Dublin_County_Dublin.html

At one time he was working as dock foreman in Liverpool. However, he devoted himself to become a socialist who had firm belief that most of the workers were being mistreated. Soon he was a member of the National Union of Dock Laborers. Here is where he started, and soon he became a well-known organizer who attracted a mass following.

Jim Larkin was using militant strikes, and that is why his activities soon attracted the union. But soon he left the party and started the Irish Transport and General Workers’.

The main aim of the party was to bring all the workers together so that they could be united. With unity, Jim Larkin knew that things would be easy to organize.

Jim Larkin became popular, and he created another party known as the Irish Labor Party. One of his most significant achievements in history is when he successfully led the Dublin Lockout.

The lockout ensured thousands of workers did not go for the job and went for more than eight months. It is a strike that led employers to talk to the workers, and they offered their demands.

The Chainsmokers: Summer and New Songs

The Chainsmokers are a pair of DJ’s and producers, Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart. The two met in 2012 when Pall was looking for a new partner for his two-person band. They had a mutual friend in current band manager Adam Alpert, who thought the two would get along. They did, and formed the Chainsmokers. Their first live show was in September of 2014, opening for Timeflies at Terminal 5 in New York.

The Chainsmokers have had several years of consistent success since that show. They have released a full length album, “Memories…Do Not open”, which was #1 on the Billboard Top 200 and Dance/Electronic Charts at the same time. They have released several EP’s as well, though their main output seems to be singles, often released for free on their website. They have many hit songs and collaborations with their singles releases, including their most recent release, “Side Effects.” The single, released at the end of July, features vocals by Emily Warren, a good friend and frequent collaborator of the Chainsmokers.

“Side Effects” is an example of a new direction for Pall and Taggart; they have been releasing some slower songs recently, but “Side Effects” is a faster, up-tempo song that they say represents summer.

Pall and Taggart prefer the songs where they get to express themselves about their feelings and lives, and “Side Effect” is an example of that as well. One thing contributing to the slower sound this was that many of their 2018 releases were written and recorded in winter. With summer now in swing they wanted to capture the feeling of that season, so they infused a disco sensibility to “Side Effects” and made it a more upbeat song, while keeping that personal sensibility intact.

In their live shows, the Chainsmokers have been experimenting with new things. They have gone from an almost exclusive set of having two guys behind DJ tables, but recently have added live musicians to their show. They are especially fond of having a live drummer. The two also bring their collaborating musicians on stage as often as possible.
