Alex Hern Captures Augmented Reality.

Virtual reAlex Hernality hardware has changed tremendously in the last 20 years. Once requiring a room-sized setup, virtual reality hardware has been reduced to the size of a smartphone and as wearable hardware becomes smaller and more lightweight and affordable, wearable computers will become more widespread. Wireless data speeds have also increased in the last 20 years, with 5G speeds becoming more and more likely. These two factors have allowed augmented reality computing solutions to become a feasible system to many more industries, and Alex Hern and Tsunami XR, the company he co-founded with Dave Ross, are in perfect position to provide software that supports collaboration and idea exchanges in virtual reality.

While Pokemon Go brought augmented reality to widespread attention, the technology can be used for much more than gaming. In fact, the applications for use in the business world are widespread. With augmented reality, designers can collaborate on problems worldwide, harness design talent from multiple sources and backgrounds, and can bring together multiple disciplines within a single framework, nearly eliminating travel costs and allowing expert advice and idea sharing to be accessed across the globe.

Alex Hern and Tsunami XR have created two platforms to take advantage of these new technological advancements in augmented reality by creating Tsunami Workspace, a virtual meeting space that provides real-time collaboration across continents, allowing users to share the environments and gives a clear visualization of the tasks at hand. The platform can be used to provide virtual training for offsite employees. Tsunami’s other platform, Tsunami Studio creates a 3-D modeling workroom, which allows real-time modeling and schematic creation between multi-local teams, and can bring together a wide swath of talent together in the design process.

Establishing a leading presence with augmented reality solutions has given Chris Hern and Tsunami XR a foreknowledge of the future of augmented reality and will allow the company a continued edge in collaboration and design possibilities that augmented reality workspaces will require.

Changing How We View Knee Replacement Surgery – Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, is the Chairman of Orthopedics at Bronxcare Health System. He focuses on hip and knee replacements and specializes in the minimally invasive approach. Dr. Kirschenbaum is also trained in different types of knee surgeries like complex revision joint replacement surgery, for example. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum completed his surgical training in knee and hip replacement and reconstructive surgery at the Rothman Institute in Pennsylvania.


Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum has been interview on several different news reports, including one for WPIX-11. During this interview, the patient, Robert Reed, discussed how he developed arthritis in his knee was in so much pain that he was taking Advil pain relievers like they were a candy. He needed a partial knee resurfacing surgery. Dr. Kirschenbaum uses this technique to save the knee in the long run. Since there are three different parts of the knee, if only one portion of the knee is damaged, then he can resurface the bone and the end. With metal on one side of the bone and high density plastic on the other side, this way keeps the rest of the knee intact as opposed to completely replacing the entire knee. If you have to have an entire knee replacement, then in a few years if that knee replacement fails, you will most likely have to have another one.


Whereas with the resurfacing, you can still give your joint a chance at feeling just like it normally felt. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum then explained that this would not be a good option for those patients with severe or rheumatoid arthritis, but those with osteoarthritis that is strictly situated in one joint is an excellent candidate for the resurfacing surgery. Dr. Kirschenbaum says that this type of arthritis is about 70 percent of all knee arthritis problems.


Dr. Kirschenbaum has a membership within many different Orthopedic Surgery Boards, including The American Academy of Orthopedic Surgeons and The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons. He was on the Board of the Arthritis Foundation in the Hudson Valley Region. Dr. Kirschenbaum was also given the prestigious James A. Vohs Award for Quality in 1994, while he was the Chief of Reconstructive Surgery for Kaiser Permanente in the Northeast

These special tokens are versatile because they can be used in video games as well as converted and swapped for Bitcoin and other cryptocurrencies.

Deirdre Baggot Explains Why Healthcare Payment Reform Is Increasing In Speed

The traditional ways of paying for healthcare are slowly beginning to go by the wayside. These methods are getting a dramatic overhaul to both reduce costs and improve patient outcomes. One of the people leading this fight is Deirdre Baggot, Ph.D., MBA, RN, who is an expert in the new form of paying for healthcare, bundled payments. She says that how the healthcare industry currently works is that healthcare providers are paid for quantity, not quality. This means they earn more running all sorts of tests, many of which are unnecessary, or short thrifting aftercare because they don’t earn enough from it. This means that health care providers earn more by churning patients through the system rather than truly taking care of them.

However, Deirdre Baggot says that payment reform is pretty complicated. Business leaders need to really understand their company’s payment system in a way that increases patient satisfaction with their services while also keeping the organization profitable. The new bundled payments approach is more streamlined than traditional billing methods as it eliminates a number of fundamental issues. As a consultant, she partners with healthcare organizations to implement bundled payment systems into their business.

She has years of hands-on experience implementing these types of changes. Bundled payment plans are something that is getting bigger traction in the healthcare industry each year. The benefits of this new system are being seen across the United States from those healthcare organizations who have reformed their billing practices.

Dierdre Baggot wrote about the Affordable Care Act in an article that recently appeared on BoardRoom Press. She wrote about how traditional payment models are negatively impacting people’s ability to pay for their medical care. Traditional payment methods are also putting in jeopardy the bottom lines of organizations who continue to insist on using them.

Hussain Sajwani: the DAMAC Owner and Billionaire Extraordinaire

Hussain Sajwani is one of the most success men in his industry. His company, Damac, has developed some of the most outstanding properties in the world. The buildings themselves are just spectacular, but it’s also the extra mile Damac that brings to its clients. Damac is known for its glitzy properties and over the top marketing stunts.

Despite such enormous success, Sajwani never forgets where he came from. He takes great pride in the origins of his company. During Desert Storm, Sajwani’s company supplied food to U.S. troops. It’s even been recognized for its marvelous food service.

Even though Damac Group has come a long way, food service is still a part of the company. It reminds Sajwani of his first business and enables him to cultivate important friendships in high places on a global scale. His company’s recent ventures have been in real estate properties. Lately, his company has been preparing for the UAE property price recovery.

As the market shifts more in his favor, his company is primed to capitalize in the best of ways. A company of that size and structure has numerous options. One of the final steps in taking advantage of the recovery is to hire the right bank which will offer the right advice.

In its current situation, an IPO is still being called “hypothetical”. His company already has cash and bonds and a great debt/ratio percentage. The benefits of this IPO could produce cash for expansion or allow owners to make some money from the company. There are just too many options open for any definitive conclusions to be made.

DAMAC Owner Sajwani and Damac Group have come a long way from food services. Even though he plans on keeping the food business a part of his company, the food business is too small for his ambitions. Despite having several large contracts, the success ratio is still too small. He wants to make billions, not millions.

As Dubai’s economy recovers, Sajwani has once again set his sights on expansion. He’s hopeful for the future.

How Fortress Investment Group was Bought for $3.3 Billion

Investment management companies exist all around the United States, especially those that offer counseling and have financial advisors who help investors and asset owners control their investments and diversify their portfolio. However, many of those are not as popular or as efficient as Fortress Investment Group, an investment management and financial advisory company located in NYC.

The company was founded in 1998 and has already celebrated its 20th anniversary in 2018 with an impressive record of growth and success since its establishment.

Fortress Investment Group was founded by three investment experts and entrepreneurs: Wesley R. Edens and Randal Nardone. Since 1998, it saw massive growth and was publicly traded in 2007, being the first large private equity firm in the country to do so. It has since then managed billions in assets from investors from all over the country, and continues to have a massive number of loyal clients to this day.

The investment management company has received acknowledgments, prizes and awards as well as some of their employees and leaders.

After 2007, many nominations took place such as 2010 and 2011’s “Credit-Focused Fund of the Year” award, and the “Discretionary Macro-Focused Hedge Fund of the Year” in 2012. 2014 was also a prominent year for the corporation as they received the “Hedge Fund Manager of the Year” nomination, from the group Institutional Investor, and another nomination, “Management Firm of the Year,” by HFMWeek, acknowledging the company’s influence in the market.

Fortress Investment Group has more than just private equity management and the traditional asset management solutions. The company deals with many investments and credit, as well as alternative assets. They offer management of hedge funds and equity funds.

In February of 2017, the corporation was doing very well in the market. The business was expanding, and they had many investors using their asset management services. Because of their success, in that same month, Softbank Group confirmed that their plans of buying the company were true and it wouldn’t take too long for the bank to acquire Fortress Investment Group. The price for the acquisition was $3.3 billion.

The group has a wide variety of other companies and financial management firms in its pockets, as its portfolio has only grown larger and larger throughout the years. The company had bought the Canadian ski resort company Intrawest, as well as a co-ownership when the company and its partner Centerbridge Partners acquired Penn National Gaming. Their portfolio has continued to increase until 2014, when a local journal announced that they had acquired Inverness Corners retail center.
