The City Of Rio Gets Child-Friendly In New Joint Project

The current mayor of Rio de Janeiro, Marcelo Crivella, is on a drive to make the city the most child-friendly in the country. He has a rich history of commitment to the education sector. The plan was part of an elaborate campaign manifesto that he looks geared up to start delivering on. He is leveraging a public-private partnership to help him build twenty thousand daycare centers and double that number of new preschools in the city.

The project involves the construction of the facilities and their maintenance as well as related services such as educational programs. Infrastructure experts such as Felipe Montoro Jens have praised the deal, which is already in the feasibility stage. The project follows a similar one launched in 2012 in the southeastern city of Belo Horizonte in the country. The private sector is poised to undertake the construction and maintenance of the facilities while city hall provides educational services.

The International Finance Corporation is providing consulting services on the deal. Felipe Montoro Jens points out that the firm is the biggest financial services institution with a strong focus on developing countries. The organization is at the forefront of strengthening the private sector by addressing barriers in finance, management, and politics.

The company is also expected to oversee a similar joint project in the city of Rio that is expected to expand public lighting. The concept of public-private partnerships was popularized in 2004 in the country. The government enacted reforms that created the framework that guides bidding and the awarding of contracts.

The strategy enables the government to tap into key resources in the private sector to strengthen public service delivery and administration. Through these partnerships, the government extends the reach of essential services to a broader citizenry as well as improves the quality of service delivery in public offices. The partnership is effected through a negotiated concession contract between the relevant state representatives and private firms.

Talkspace: Therapy With Heart

One of the things that many people have noticed in the therapy community is a lack of care and a lack of heart. It has become a money business and that is all it is to them at the end of the day. They want their money, and they do not care how they get it or if someone has to suffer along the way. Talkspace is for the people and by the people. It consists of over 1,000 professionals that know how to help people. The great news is that people can actually pay for it and not go into the poor house in doing so.

Talkspace is looking to revolutionize the way that therapy is done as someone can either text a therapist, talk to one on the phone, or have a video session. They like to let the clients have the control in the situation. After all, no one knows their situation better than them. Because of this, they want to make sure the client feels like they are in control of their mental health. They have the help they need, which is great, but it is even better when they decide when they need it and how they need it.

Too often, they have been told what to do and it just doesn’t seem right and it doesn’t work for them. Those days are long gone, as now they can communicate with the therapist and come up with a plan that works best for them and puts their mind at ease. In-person therapy works for some people, but for other people, they prefer the app and the telephone route. Talkspace saw a void that was out there, and they decided to swoop in and do something about it. They are truly heroes in that regard.

The Success of Clay Siegall as President and C.E.O of Seattle Genetics

Clay B. Siegall, Ph.D., is the president, C.E.O and Chairman of the Board of Seattle Genetics. The company was co-founded by Clay in 1998. He is a scientist by training with main emphasis focused on cancer therapies. After rigorous research, scientific innovation, development of drugs and passion to help patients, Dr. Siegall started Seattle genetics on these foundations.

He has played a pivotal role in guiding Seattle genetics in developing Antibody-drug Conjugates (ADC) that are used in treatment of cancer. Through his stewardship, he has also built on other antibodies including ADCENTRIES (brentuximab Vedotin). This was approved by the U.S Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the year 2011.

From the news article in “Seattle Business Magazine”, it highly rates Seattle genetics to be the region’s dominant company. This immense success is thus a major concern of whether Seattle genetics may be a target of acquisition in the local industry.

One of the contributing factors of this success is its ability to connect therapy to the antibodies. These antibodies in turn provide a poisonous load inside the cancer cell and destroy it completely from inside. This strategy is in a position to catapult Seattle genetics to high heights.

Another contribution of this success is the company’s perseverance during the ups and downs that they face in this sector. Also, they decided not to decamp from Seattle genetics just like what Immunex did when it was acquired by Amgen. Seattle genetics is thus ranked to be one of the largest biotech in Washington. It has an estimated value of $10 billion and with over 900 employees.

The main strategy of Seattle is investing in research and marketing. It thus expects to acquire 200 extra employees every year. Clay Siegall’s ambition also lies in his desire to change his focus on drug development and embark in handling complexities involved in marketing newer drugs internationally. This desire is ignited when Siegall learns global marketing in Taxeda. To facilitate the company’s international marketing, Siegall opened an office in Switzerland.

Clay .B. Siegall, apart from being the C.E.O of Seattle’s Genetics, his professional career also centers in holding various positions. In year 2014, Clay Siegall together with Matthew Fust was appointed in the position of Board of Directors in Ultragenyx Pharmaceutical Inc. This followed after the resignation of Mr.Ben Auspitz. Their experience and expertise in this field is what led to these appointments.
