Jim Toner begins his message to us with a recap of the movie “They Live” where the protagonist discovers sunglasses which allow him to see the world as it truly is. Jim Toner chooses this movie as his starting point to demonstrate to us in a visual sense of how we are all being controlled on a daily bases. Maybe not physically, but mentally we are controlled by the establishment’s standards of what should be classified as successful and what isn’t.
Jim Toner mentions that we don’t need special sunglasses to see the truth, he didn’t after all. As someone who barely graduated high school. Jim Toner should be a loser according to societies standards. This, however, is not the case as Jim Toner himself has been able to build and grow companies into multi million-dollar assets and has written two best-selling books.
Quoting Napolean Hill’s book “Think and Grow Rich”, entrepreneur Jim Toner explains that the 17 principals laid out in the book showcase one particular principal that is being subdued at this moment, and that is “thinking accurately”. This referring back to his message on ending the stigma that you must have a college education to succeed in life. Because many do not see themselves as making it in college they go on through their lives believing they are not qualified to do anything great therefore subduing a large portion of the population.

The good news? We have the magic sunglasses too. Jim Toner gives us the exact formula to finally putting them on and seeing the world as it is. First, we must be exactly sure where we are in life. Second, what do we want out of it? and the last few steps are not removed ourselves from social media pull as it only allows deception from other people. Follow Tim Toner’s advice and you’re golden.

The education system in America is sometimes shown to be atrociously not that great. Schools can do more for kids, but they don’t. Unfortunately, the traditional school system is very rigid, and it is hard to change it because there are too many bureaucrats who have their hands in the pot for there to be any change. This is the reason why America needs charter schools.
Charter schools are privately owned, yet they receive public funding. Some people think that it is unfair to publicly fund schools that are privately owned and are not subjected to certain standards that regular public schools are subjected to. Some people argue against the existence of charter schools by saying that such schools are not subjected to the same building requirements as regular schools and that many charter schools are not physically constructed to same high standards that allow many traditional schools to withstand natural disasters. However, on the other hand, it is very unfair for normal public schools to subject children to inferior-quality education while not doing anything when children show a lack of success. Also, public schools should provide children with the best possible education. If some charter schools really aren’t built to the same standards as regular schools, then regular schools should be ashamed of themselves for providing educations that are so inferior that students are forced to attend school in buildings that aren’t as great, structurally.
Rocketship Education is a company that owns well-built charter schools throughout the San Jose area. The charter school network was formed in 2006. As of the year 2012, experts counted five schools throughout the San Jose area, with roughly 450 kids attending each school. Rocketship Education provides an exceptional alternative to the inferior educations that children receive in regular schools. The vast majority of children come from families who have lower incomes. Also, a large portion of the children speak foreign languages before English.

Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum is the chairman of orthopaedics at the Bronxcare Health System. Kirschenbaum received his undergraduate degree at Brown University in 1979. The doctor majored in Independent Concentration Neuroscience. Dr. Kirschenbaum earned his medical degree from Albert Einstein College of Medicine of Yeshiva University.
The orthopaedic doctor specializes in minimally invasive knee and hip replacement surgery. Kirschenbaum is a member of many medical organizations, including the American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons, the American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons, and the American Board of Orthopaedic Research Society.
One of Ira Kirschenbaum‘s patients is 25-year karate expert, Robert Reed. In addition to karate, Reed participated in fooball, basketball, and softball. Oneday, his knee joint was throbbing. and he was in tremendous pain. Reed popped many Advil tablets as though they were M&M’s. The pain was so bad, Reed went to see Dr. Kirschenbaum who performed a partial knee replacement.
The knee has three separate compartments. Rather than replace the entire knee, only the damaged part of the knee could be replaced instead. When part of the knee is diseased, the bone of that part of the knee can be resurfaced. Partial knee replacement is better than replacing the entire knee because the patient will still have feeling in that knee. If a patient has his entire knee replaced, he would always have to have the entire knee replaced.
Dr. Kirschenbaum doesn’t believe in future surgeries that every knee replacement surgery requires that the entire knee be replaced. The orthopaedic surgeon has developed specialized instruments to perform partial knee and cementless hip replacement surgeries. Kirschenbaum has acquired many patents for his surgical invention. The Stryker Corp consultant is the founding executive director of Netscape Orthopaedics.
Hussain Sajwani is a very successful real estate businessman in Dubai. He is the founder and owner of DAMAC Properties, Inc., a real estate development and management company. He formed the company in 2002 when the United Arab Emirates made the decision to allow foreign nationals to purchase property in the country and live there. Sajwani predicted that the decision would result in a real estate boom and he wanted to be prepared for it.
Sajawani immediately began to purchase land and advertise his luxury apartments which would be built there. He was a master promoter and there was hardly a living soul in the area who was unaware of DAMAC and Hussain Sajwani by the time his ads were running well. His slogan of “A New Bently With Each New Luxury Apartment” is an example of his hard-hitting promotional ads.
According to ebizine.com, his promotions were well received as his first apartment project was completely sold out prior to the beginning of any construction work. People with money were among those who would be coming to the UAE and Sajwani wanted to cater to them because that was a tremendous profit center. Soon, the high-end luxury accommodations were in great demand as that what the immigrants wanted.
When Sajwani was just a schoolboy, he worked for his father after school in the family business. His father sold Parker Pens, office supplies, and other business and household accessories. Sajwani learned how to work with people and the value of hard work. He remembers those days with fondness, but he also remembers that he complained to his father about the long hours.
Today, DAMAC is a well-recognized company in the region and Sajwani is a sought-after advisor in business and real estate circles. As DAMAC has grown, family members have been added to management as they have become qualified with degrees and experience in the business.
Prior to the US Presidential election, Sajwani partnered with Donald Trump and there are several Trump golf courses at some of the DAMAC resorts. DAMAC owns properties all over the Middle East as well as in London and Paris. There are further expansion plans as the need arises in various locations where people would enjoy living.
Over the course of an average human life, there is going to be a considerable amount of wear and tear on the body. One part of the body that can end up in bad shape are the knees. Years of sports and other physical activity has left the patient Robert Reed with arthritis in the knees. However, thanks to the fact that only one part of the knee was deceased, a knee resurfacing was able to be done instead of a total knee replacement surgery. The knee is made up of three parts and if only one part of the knee needs to be replaced, then there is no reason to replace the entire thing. As Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, a Harvard graduate and current chairman of Orthopaedics at Bronxcare Health System, explains, once the knee is gone that is it. There is no getting back the original knee or the feeling of having a natural knee ever again. It is for this reason that he recommends, if the opportunity is available, to go with a resurfacing instead of a replacement. This leaves the patient with an option that is both less intrusive as well a more natural knee that closer emulated how the knee felt before the surgery. The thing about a knee replacement surgery is that it does not last forever. After ten or so years, the new artificial knee will need to be replaced again. A knee replacement surgery leaves you with nothing left besides your new knew but with a resurfacing, only one third of the knee is lost. It is important to note, however, that when a patient has extreme arthritis in the knees, a knee resurfacing may not be an option.

Adam Milstein was born in Israel. He moved in 1981 from Israel to the U.S in 1981. After in 1983 getting his MBA from UCLA he went into the business of commercial real estate business. This was as a sales agent. On top of that he upgraded as a partner of management at Hager Pacific Properties a type of firm.
A couple months ago Adam Milstein and his wife Gila had the chance to dive further into the Holocaust’s destructive and frightening truths. They had gone to six countries. Those particular countries were Germany, the Czech Republic, Poland, Latvia, Estonia, and Lithuanian. Also, joining forces with one-hundred head philanthropists and scholars from America, tried to understand the range of genocide. It was taken out by Nazi Germany and the collaborators who were German.
On the trip Adam Milstein and Gila were bearing witness to the barbaric states that the Jews in Auschwitz-Birkenau endured for one way. That was to eliminate the Gypsy and Jewish clans. The couple toured giant graves where hundreds of thousands of Jewish families died in the palms of firing squads. This occurred when their neighbors who weren’t Jewish teamed up or joined in when the German killing machine had come. The couple attended the Rumbula Forest Memorial”. There they remembered a portion of the 2.4 million Jews who got killed in the hidden Holocaust. This was by bullets. Some had been forsaken by neighbors they were growing up beside.
Adam Milstein and his wife learned three things on the trip they were on. Number one, the “Holocaust” and events like it didn’t quickly happen. They came from means of discrimination, racism, and intimidation that succeeded for many years. The second lesson is we’re needed to know and battle against anti-Semitism. This is with all our might at any time we face it. If we don’t anti-Semitism gets worse on our part. The final lesson is that we need to help Israel. It didn’t endure during the moment of the Holocaust. It has saved Jews in the millions who departed anti-Semitism worldwide.

Companies around the globe have embraced technology as a means of replacing the human element. Robotic sales calls, software that provides credit approval or denial, and scripts for uneducated low-cost employees seem routine in generating business and caring for customers. David Zalik, CEO of Greensky Credit, dared to take a different approach and it paid off big.
Zalik has never been one to follow the masses in thinking. He tried entering the business world 3 times and failed 3 times. However, the knowledge that was gained through his real estate, web building and banking ventures helped him to create a more constructive future.
Greensky Credit was formed in 2006with the idea of custom designing finance services to home contractors. It took a lot of involvement and negotiating to large corporations that were experts in the remodeling field, like Home Depot, Black & Decker and Benjamin Moore for Zalik to sell his idea.
The next step involved financial institutions that could make the money available. With money in hand, the old school method of hiring employees for loan servicing and contractor recruiting brought in the business. Contractors were able to sell their services, run credit applications and offer financing, all in one meeting with the client.
Zalik has proven to the world that technology does have its place but so do the 800 employees that keep his business running smoothly. Greensky Credit has replaced bank loans and high-interest credit card loans to help the public receive top-notch services from the contractor of their choice and at a reasonable cost.
David Zalik has proven that failure can be a learning experience to plan the road ahead. Greensky Credit is the result of hard work, thinking outside of the box, and why human computer robots are never going to work in business advancement. By proving how one idea can make millions, Zalik is now using GreenSky Credit to expand from home remodelingto other areas of financing.
