The end of 2016 and the start of 2017 may prove to be one of the busiest and most successful periods in the career of Maggie Gill, who has acted as the President and CEO of the Memorial University Medical University after spending much of the previous decade working in various roles within the health system. A successful medical industry executive, Maggie Gill has recently been exploring the many different opportunities available to Memorial as she seeks new partnerships to continue developing the Memorial reputation across the southeast of the U.S.
The reputation of Maggie Gill and her team is currently at an all time high after the starring role the management group from memorial took at the George Medical Society’s 16th Annual Healthcare heroes Awards in November 2016. Seven awards were won by executives from Memorial as a range of programs and individuals were honored for their roles at the hospital and in the community; an award was provided for the Teen Driver’s program that has been developed at Memorial in a bid to keep all teens safe during their first years of driving. The overall reputation of Memorial and Maggie Gill’s leadership were improved when a Lifetime Achievement Award was given to Memorial’s former trauma expert Dr. Carl Boyd.
The awards came at a time when Maggie Gill was preparing to reveal the details of a new Medicare program to be offered through a partnership between Memorial and Eon Health that will aid Medicare patients in South Carolina and Georgia. The aim of the partnership and development of the Medicare plan has been to create an inexpensive plan that includes low cost prescription payments and free transportation to and from treatment sites in a bid to increase the health of patients across the southeast.
You’ve got to wonder, who is the best player in the NBA
? Has the NBA center position become an endangered species? 3-point shooting is now the norm but this does not mean there aren’t some of the best NBA centers
. DeMarcus Cousins offers this position the most. He can bang inside but has also developed a nice 3-point touch. Marc Gasol is more of a prototypical center.
A big body with a great eye for passing and the ability to hit mid-range jump shots. Andre Drummond is a double-double machine as he led the league in rebounding. While not an offensive juggernaut, DeAndre Jordan’s athletic ability is breath-taking, which puts him at the upper echelon of NBA centers. The young Karl-Anthony Towns has also made a huge impression on this position in his first two seasons.
But do any of these NBA centers rank at the top of all the current NBA players? The game has changed drastically the past decade with focus falling on outside shooting and speed. It’s a toss-up as to who would rank higher, LeBron James or Steph Curry. Either way you can’t lose. The point guard position carries a lot of weight at the top.
Russell Westbrook and James Harden are scratching on Curry’s heels. Kyrie Irving, Damian Lillard and John Wall also have some say. The talent at the forward position is just as fierce. Kevin Durant and Kawhi Leonard, along with James, are the biggest names. Anthony Davis, Draymond Green, Blake Griffin and LaMarcus Aldridge round out the top talent at forward.
The lip balm and lip care industry have been the same for over one hundred years. Seven years ago, a new company came onto the scene and made everyone rethink lip balm. EOS, Evolution of Smooth, showed up out of nowhere and completely changed the entire lip balm industry for the better.
According to FastCompany.com, before EOS, anyone who thought of lip balm thought of Chapstick and the cylinder tube. There were very few flavors to choose from and were almost thought of as boring. EOS decided to change all of that. Research told them that their made buyers were women and they wanted something exciting.
The flavors were not the only thing that was changing. With the help of a clay artist, the orb shape would be the new shape for EOS lip balm, This shape was easy to hold and allowed for the maximum application.
In recent years, it has been a hot trend to use more and more organic ingredients in products. EOS decided to continue this trend. While they were using organic ingredients in their lip balm, they were able to keep their prices in line with the rest of the competition. They are now offering a better product for the same price.
Marketing proved to be a hassle but a Walgreens sales representative told them yes. She placed them on their shelves and had excellent results. Other stores soon followed and now EOS lip orbs are being used by famous celebrities.
In just seven years, EOS was able to completely revamp the classic lip balm and move into the number two slot. They are constantly working on new products and how to make the company even better. The future looks very bright for EOS. For more information, visit evolutionofsmooth.com.
The fashion and technology industry has undergone major changes. According to Chris Burch, technology has become more fashionable over the years. A review of the past and the present culture should give one insight into future trends in fashion and technology. At the present day, consumer goods indicate that technology is growing and becoming popular. The popularity of products lies in what people think is fashionable.
In the fashion industry, many designers concentrate on delivering appealing products through the use of technology. The technology employs high stands of functionality and innovation. Chris Burch wrote an article expounding the relationship between fashion and technology. He stated that technology is like an experimentation or playground. People that dig deeper always find endless possibilities.
Looking to the future, we find advancements in technology that are set to protect us. Most of these advancements are already in use today. Take for example the Airbag for Cyclists. The protective gear is a fashionable equipment worn around the neck. It has a protective function of safeguarding the head and neck in case of an impact. Firefighters have benefited too from Frontline technological gloves. The gloves have assisted them to pass critical information to their partners.
Christopher Burch has used his eye to discern services and products that are likely to be available in future. He started and invested in different business areas. Today Burch owns the Burch Creative Capital brand. The company avails its services to other international brands in the world. The company has collaborated with TV shows to bring the most relevant technology videos. Burch has been noted to state that it is not technology always that helps fashion. Technology too does benefit in the fashion world. One example is the case of the Google Glass. At the start, the device received stigma and many people disliked the product. However, once it became a fashionable trend, many people went to purchase it.

One of the disadvantages of the internet is people can hijack your name, personal or business, and smear you without repercussions. There are ways to fight back and Chris Silver Smith of Marketingland.com wrote an excellent article about ten things yo can do to build and save your reputation online. I highly recommend you consider each of these tips, they could make the difference when it comes to the online perception of you or your company.
- The most powerful action is to buy your name registered under the “.com” domain. If that’s not possible, then alter your name with dashes or extra letters and purchase that .com domain.
- If yourname.com is taken, then purchase it with one of the other major domain extensions, like yourname.net or.org.
- Purchase yourname.me, this is an extension from the country of Montenegro but it’s available worldwide.
- See if you can register your name with a geographic domain. Something like yourname.yourcity or .yourstate. This works best in larger geographic areas.
- If your name is already registered, try and combine a subdomain with a domain name. So your URL would look like, firstname.lastname.com.
- Try to include a keyword within your URL. For instance, a doctor could use a name with .doctor or .physician in the address.
- You can also make a deliberate misspelling of a word in your name. So, if yourname.com is taken, try yournames.com.
- Consider purchasing a .tel domain. This is administered by Telnic as a marketing tool. It’s an internet directory service, so your contact information and a biography are part of the domain name.
- It is possible to split your name with a domain hack. For instance, if yourname.com is taken, you could purchase yourna.me instead.
10. If you are the CEO of a company, or want to be known as one, consider purchasing a .CEO domain. These domains are expensive, starting at $99, but they do add a sense of exclusivity to your name.
