What Is It That You Like About Financial Consulting

My educational background was in the fields of finance and accounting and it had always been a dream of mine to work for a company that in fact owned. This field provided the perfect opportunity to realize my dream while working in a field I had known about.

How Did You Get Your Start In The Meat Processing Business

I played a part in arranging the financing for the Kolschowsky family when they opened their first plant to process meat on the west side of Chicago. The company was first named after its owner and was known as Otto & Sons. Different things happened over the years and I would eventually gain ownership of the company that is now known as OSI Group.

What Was Your Earliest Vision For OSI

From the start, my goal was to see the company grow to its fullest possible potential and to become a leader in the industry.

How Would You Quantify OSI’s Global Reach Today

OSI now maintains more than 80 facilities located in 17 countries across the globe. We concentrate mostly on meat and protein products but do produce a few vegetable items, baked goods, and sauces of various sorts.

Can You Speak A Little About The Culture At OSI

We are a close-knit group at OSI and I am extremely proud of everyone that works for us. The door to my office, along with my ear, is always available. We eat lunch together whenever at the corporate office and everyone is on a first name basis. For instance, I am known as either Sheldon or Shelly within company ranks.

What Do You See In The Company’s Future

I want to see a continued expansion along with the further career development of all the talented people that perform duties for us.

When President Donald Trump pardoned former Sheriff Joe Arpaio in October last year, there was something that was an outcry from supports of human rights. The action did not go down well with the dictates of the human rights charter passed by the UN General Assembly. Joe Arpaio had committed crimes that could not have been allowed to go unpunished in any society that respects the rights of the people. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/ and http://james-larkin.com/about/

Joe Arpaio had committed grave violations of human rights while he was the sheriff that even after leaving office, his actions are still raising eyebrows. Joe Arpaio was inhumane to say the least. He treated anyone who was not a legal citizen of the United States in a way no human being should be treated.

Joe Arpaio had been found guilty of racial discrimination before Trump pardoned him. He had been ordered by the courts in 2013 to change the way he was treating immigrants in the state, but he did not. He kept on doing the same things that the courts had cautioned him.

When he was brought back to the courts, he was found guilty and was to be sentenced for disobeying court orders. In such cases, the slightest sentence would have been six months. In August, Trump recommended that Arpaio is pardoned for the charges facing him. Now he is a free man who can live with other people as nothing happened.

Joe Arpaio and President Trump share the same sentiments about immigration. They believe that the United States belong to natives only and no one from outside the country should be allowed to live in the country. Trump’s approach to immigration is similar to what Arpaio was doing.

He believes that anyone who does not have papers to live or work in the United States should be sent away even if it is in an inhumane way soon after taking over the government, Trump was on record saying there are people from some countries who would not be allowed to step on the US soil.

Trump is proud of the actions taken by Arpaio, and that is why he recommended his pardon. To him, there was nothing wrong with actions committed by Joe Arpaio since it is the same thing that he is doing, Trump had hinted during his campaigns in Arizona that he would be pardoning Arpaio, but not many people understood what he meant at the time. Now it has become clear that he meant setting Arpaio free.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are journalists in Arizona who have used their whole career lives looking for better things for immigrants in the United States. Lacy and Larkin have a foundation known as Frontera Fund.

It is an organization they established after the courts granted them compensation of $3.75 million following case they had launched against their illegal arrest by Joe Arpaio. The group supports human right activists in Arizona do more in supporting the rights of the immigrants in the state. So far they have reached tens of other organizations.

Tempus Has Partnered with the Mayo Clinic

Tempus, a startup company created by Eric Lefkofsky to lead the charge in the fight against cancer, has partnered with the Mayo Clinic’s Center for Individualized Medicine according to the Chicago Tribune. Lefkofsky, the co-founder of Groupon, formed the company in Chicago, Illinois in 2015. Tempus has also partnered with other health care organizations such as Northwestern University’s Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center and Rush University Medical Center. Lefkofsky stated that he is open to partnering with many more organizations in the future.

The main focus and mission of Tempus’ partnership with the Mayo Clinic is to use patient data, first and foremost, to treat and improve the survival rates of people suffering from cancer. Tempus will sequence the DNA of 1000 patients participating in research associating cancers such as lung cancer, breast cancer, lymphoma, and bladder cancer with immunotherapy and endocrine therapy. The goal is to be able to guide doctors in creating customized treatment plans in the future that are safe and effective for their patients.

Tempus will take this data, which includes the DNA sequence of the patient’s DNA and a biochemical analysis of the tumor itself and build a comprehensive library that will be able to be accessed by any physician, at anytime. Lefkofsky believes that data gathered at the molecular level, when combined into a library with the molecular data from other patients, is a powerful tool. He states that the genetic sequences stored within the library yields patterns within the DNA sequences that may indicate the presence of a mutation or change within a gene. Doctors can look to see which treatments were effective in patients with a similar mutation. The library will help guide the medical decisions that need to be made and give doctors the confidence that they are making the right decisions on behalf of their patients.
