Seattle Genetics recently concluded its second quarter financial results conference call for 2016, which was spearheaded by Peggy Pinkston, the Executive Director of Corporate Communications, and Clay B. Siegall, the Chairman, President and Chief Executive Officer. Dr. Siegall spoke directly about the efforts and progress of Seattle Genetics in developing into a global multi-product oncology company. For the second quarter of 2016, Seattle Genetics reported an impressive $95.4 million in revenue. Contributing to this major achievement is the progress with ADCETRIS and its status in clinical trials programs.
Dr. Siegall has been integral to the progress of Seattle Genetics since he co-founded the company in 1998. He has been the vision behind Seattle Genetics producing a pipeline of antibody-based cancer therapies. ADCETRIS has been one of the more promising and exciting recent developments for Seattle Genetics. It was granted accelerated approval by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration about five years ago and has been exhibiting plenty of positive signs in clinical testing.
While there is no doubt that Dr. Siegall has been the driving force behind the technological advancements at Seattle Genetics, he has also played a vital role in the company’s remarkable fundraising efforts. Under the leadership of Dr. Clay Siegall, Seattle Genetics generated more than $675 million in public and private financing in 2001 during its initial public offering.
Before Dr. Siegall founded Seattle Genetics, he worked at the Bristol-Myers Squibb Pharmaceutical Research Institute for about six years. In addition, Dr. Siegall also held positions at the National Cancer Institute and currently sits on the Board of Directors of Alder BioPharmaceuticals. His wealth of knowledge in all aspects of the biotechnology industry has been essential to the widespread success of Seattle Genetics. Dr. Siegall is extremely unique in that he is well versed in both the business and research ends of the biotechonology industry, which is no small feat. He continues to find ways for Seattle Genetics to be at the cutting edge of the industry.
George Soros is returning to the world that made him famous. After a long time away from financial trading, George Soros is making a huge comeback. Based on reports in the Wall Street Journal, the amount of money Soros wishes to trade with is far from a small amount. He is interested in putting billions of dollars into the market. No, George Soros is not interested in retiring. Even after many decades, trading is part of his life. His decision to return in such a big way, however, has taken the financial media by surprise.
The asset in which George Soros is choosing to put his money is gold. Considering the current economic situations across the world, this should not come as a massive surprise. Soros had warned that a failure to properly manage the current migrant crisis under control would cause major fiscal problems in Europe. He also noted that the departure of the United Kingdom from the European Union would also ferment additional economic woes. Things have not reached the point of a meltdown, but Soros feels numerous factors rippling through global economies have the potential to cause a possible meltdown. At the very least, a significant recession could emerge.
Soros, as CNBC reports, is doing the same thing. He is just doing it on a massively grand scale.
Soros, through Soros Fund Management, has chosen to put $30 billion in the gold market. A massive amount of gold has been purchased with this money. The $30 billion likely comes from a disinvestment from stocks and currency. While the acquisition of physical gold is heavily reflected in the purchase, another strategy is at work here.
Soros is also putting money into gold mining stocks. As the demand and value of gold increases, these stocks are likely to increase.
Over the course of the next year or two, all will be revealed in terms of whether or not Soros’ trading gamble has paid off.
There are a lot of people who are going to need new places to live and new jobs in New Jersey, but it is impossible for them to turn their communities around unless they have help from a development company. The Press of Atlantic City has a story about this, and it shows that any city in New Jersey can make a major change to the way that it works. It can turn around a burned out area with the help of these loans, and then they can get these loans to build large developments or casinos. That increases tourism, and it creates a lot of jobs.
The jobs that are created in these areas by DEVCO are going to be very easy to get, and they are going to be something that people need to consider when they are really thinking over how they can change their lives. The cities are going to be able to project how much money they will make in taxes, and then they will be able to project how fast the loan can be paid back. The tax money can also be used to help improve local services. This helps everyone, and it will bring a lot of commerce to an older area of the city.
The other thing that people need to remember is that all the commerce that comes to the area follows the hotels and casinos. Other companies will turn up ready to make their own investments, and these companies are going to keep turning up because they see the potential in the community.
Persons who use the internet to purposely damage someones reputation are known as ‘internet trolls’. It can involve posting negative or offensive comments or images, publishing personal or financial information, or loading bad reviews to bring a business or product’s ratings down. If this happens to you, then you have officially been ‘doxxed’. Welcome to the new reality…that some people find pleasure in damaging the reputations of others by using dirty digital information to bring them down.
Darius Fisher, an expert in repairing bad internet press and proactively increasing one’s positive presence on the internet, is President of Status Labs, an online reputation management and internet marketing service. In an eye-opening interview with The Daily Beast, he shared his experiences on getting doxxed; and better yet, offers plenty of help on what we all can do to avoid the same disasters from harming our personal integrity or professional business image.
Mr. Fisher’s checklist on digital hygiene includes removing online personal data, increasing your social media privacy settings, changing your password often, and frequently ‘googling’ yourself, as being standard practice to minimize the chances of being attacked. Yet, for many of us, even these can be daunting, as the internet holds so many pockets of information, in so many places.
Status Labs has worked with over 1500 companies in 35 countries offering tailored and results driven advice in crisis management, public relations strategies and effective digital marketing. In its simplest terms, Darius Fisher and his team of internet and marketing professionals go after and eliminate any damaging or incorrect digital data, replacing it with professional and targeted press releases, relevant business content, and appropriate social media posts to increase visibility and image.
The best way to avoid a crisis is to prevent it from happening in the first place. While the unfortunate reality of internet bullying is a part of the fabric of life in the 21st century, it can be minimized or eliminated. Seek the help of a service that knows the internet corners and crevices that hold personal information…information which can come back to haunt you!

ClassDojo privacy is robust and protects parental consent for teachers to send complex information about student’s conduct. According to ClassDojo teachers who sign up for the kids should be vetted and certified to carry out the activity and not all teachers who download the app. If the parents are not happy with ClassDojo, they may ask the teacher or contact the company to remove the student’s data.
In a recent interview on Fox News, Thor Halvorssen discussed his issues with socialism and dictatorships. Explain the difference between Democratic Socialism and Socialism under a Dictatorship style government. He feels that socialism can easily mask unscrupulous government practices by those that try to take advantage and oppressed the people. In the interview, Thor Halvorssen goes on to distinguish between the difference of Democratic Socialism and oppressive Dictatorship Socialism. Not all countries that practice socialism oppress their people but because it is so easy to mask ulterior motives using a Socialist platform. In his example he uses Venezuela. Venezuela’s socialist platform sets prices for their government which in turn creates shortages of supplies. When supplies are short, this creates a humanitarian crisis. Thor Halvorssen uses Venezuela as an example because his father was held as a political prisoner and his mother was shot and killed by Hugo chávez’s men. Even now his cousin is being held as a political prisoner. Thor’s outline said he does not oppose all socialist governments but that he opposes socialist dictatorship. Even though he does not support Democratic socialism Donated the maximum amount of funds to the Bernie Sanders campaign. He believes that Bernie Sanders is a better qualified presidential candidate because the other candidates are taking funds from Dictatorships. So ultimately opposes dictatorships and that’s where his issue was with socialism. Thor Halvorssen Sears a president that would readily take funds from countries that abuse and oppress their fellow countrymen. Thor Halvorssen is a human rights activists and does extensive humanitarian work.
