Ryan Seacrest has been known for many outstanding roles in the show entertainment industry, such as American idol, On Air with Ryan, Live with Kelly and Ryan,but the most unnoticed facet of his endeavors I admire is the Ryan Seacrest Foundation.
The Ryan Seacrest Foundation has been known to be a non-profit organization devoted to empowering our children through radio broadcast media and giving them behind the scenes insight. One of the first initiatives the Ryan Seacrest foundation has set in place is to build broad cast media centers. The centers are named Seacrest Studios. All of centers are built inside of children’s pediatric hospitals. Each patient gets to explore the fun creative dimensions of radio, new media and television.
The centers have been developed to empower and build confidence within the patients and families that are there for a longterm stay. In unique way each individual patient is given a chance to smile and laugh about there media engagements and accomplishments. The Ryan Seacrest foundation believes the privilage of having access to media experiences will create invigorating journeys that empower the optimistic thought process during treatment procedures.
The importance of reaching out the community around the centers is imperative. Getting students involved from journalism school gives the access to the opportunity of gaining broadcasting experience. Ryan’s noble decision to create these centers should be an example of how most successful people should invest in giving back to those less fortunate.
Being an iconic public figure can be challenging at times. Everyday isn’t the best when it comes to dealing with your innermost feelings. That’s why I commend Ryan Seacrest for basing his foundation around bringing true cheer to children who desperately need the encouragement. I understand Ryan’s radio broadcast and host entertainment positions are great achievements, but his foundation has become the highlight of another person’s life.

The concept of entrepreneurship is based on the idea of finding a gap in the market and fulfilling it for a profit. When talking about successful entrepreneurs in Brazil who have utilized the concept to become what they are today, Guilherme Paulus can’t miss in the list.
Guilherme Paulus is a hotelier and international entrepreneur who runs the Brazilian tour company called the CVC Brasil Operadora and the GJP Hotels and Resorts. These brand of hotels and resorts are situated throughout Brazil. He started his career when he joined IBM where he worked as an intern, the man now regarded as the most influential businessman in the country.

The idea of starting the CVC Company was conceived by then the state deputy Carlos Vicente Cerchiari whom they met on a ship and expressed his interest in beginning a tourist agency in Santo André. Guilherme Paulus proposed to come in with work and him with the real investment. The idea was implemented by opening a store in a little street next to an exit of cinema where they operated as partners for four years before Paulus went his way. That marked the onset of his entrepreneurship journey and a take-off into something beyond his imagination.
Guilherme Paulus has a unique way of giving life his ideas; he starts by first putting it into action. For him, one will never realize whether something is a noble idea or not before you set it into practice, thus bringing ideas to life is a matter of faith. As an entrepreneur, he recommends that to make a dream a reality, passion counts a great deal. Work hard, take the clients needs, changes, and behavior keenly as many entrepreneurs end up not having the proximity to the periphery of their businesses.
Paulus considers technology as one of the exciting trends in life that attract his attention. The pace at which information is exchanged makes him understand the needs of his clients quickly and act even faster than before. Technology has also enhanced understanding and responding to market trends as required as it cuts the distance between change, information and action remarkably.

When looking to invest in the stock market, taking the necessary steps to protect your investment is very important. For those that are looking to improve their diligence and protect their assets, one individual to take financial and investment advice from is Sahm Adrangi, who is currently the head of Kerrisdale Capital.
Sahm Adrangi will frequently provide insight into stocks that appear to be overvalued or company investments that do not seem right. Over the past few months, he has issued a report on Eastman Kodak, which is best known for being the creator of the Kodak line of cameras. This company has historically been considered a stable company and has not seen too much volatility in the stock price. However, in 2017 the company saw a big pop in the share price when they announced that they were going to release a new digital coin.
Similar to other companies that announced that they were going to have an Initial Coin Offering, the share price of Eastman Kodak increased substantially over a two-week period. While Sahm Adrangi believes that there is potential for digital coins and currencies as a whole, he does not believe that this move necessarily made sense for Eastman Kodak and he believed that the share price was way too high.
One of the reasons why Adrangi believes that the share price was too high is that there may not be a real need for Kodak to even have a coin. Sam Adrangi does not necessarily think that Kodak is going to benefit from having a coin and the company that is creating the coin does not have the best reputation.
Overall, Sahm Adrangi believes that the share price of the stock of Eastman Kodak will decline once the hype behind the coin is over. This could lead to a drop in price that is below where Kodak was even before they released news about the coin. What is concerning is whether the company has invested heavily in the coin to the point where they could have wasted a lot of money that could have been invested in other areas.
