Keith Mann Creates Partnership with Schools in NYC

I went to my friend’s Facebook to post Happy Birthday on his wall and saw that he had shared an interesting article on some NYC happenings. I’m always interested in reading and sharing “taking action” news. So check it out.

Keith Mann is the head of Dynamics Search Partners. Recently, the company announced a partnership with a system of schools inside of New York City known as Uncommon Schools. The executive recruiters from Dynamics Search Partners, including the founder and leader Keith Mann, met up with the senior class from the Uncommon Schools for a day in order to go over their resumes and help build their ability to apply for college and to move on to bigger and brighter things. Keith Mann was so impressed by the level of which the seniors carried themselves, he and his colleagues decided to create the partnership with the schools.

In addition, the press release announced that Dynamics Search Partners directly contributed $10,000 to the school system in order to help with the growing costs of running a private school. Uncommon Charter High School is one of the new school systems in the city, as it only opened in 2009 and it is graduating its second high school class of 2014 seniors.

As a charter, private school, Uncommon Schools is able to alter its curriculum in order to better fit the needs of the schools. It is not under the same guidelines as the public schools located throughout the state. The school system believes it prepares its students to a higher level for future success than what the local, public schools teach. Keith Mann and the rest of Dynamics Search Partners believes this is true as well, which is why it has created the partnership between the school and the company.

Dynamics Search Partners is an executive search firm that looks to source and find the very best talent to bring into their hedge fund and equity industry. Due to this, it needs students who are able to not only understand this sort of information but who also enjoys it. With the education the students learn at Uncommon Schools, with many of the students previous outlearning the students at a public school, these students are the perfect people to directly interact with the Dynamics Search Partners, as they have shown from an early age that they do enjoy this sort of work and they have a strong capability of excelling in this sort of a field.

The school also enjoys the fact that the Search Partners have decided to strike up a partnership with the school due to the amount of attention the seniors receive.

Freedom Pop’s Wi-Fi service is designed to work in perfect synchronization with the consumers devices. The service is currently only available through the company’s Android app which will be available shortly. At this time, Windows phones are incompatible with the company’s Wi-Fi service. 
Who are the company’s service providers?

Brady Ready


Quarterback Tom Brady of the National Football League has made the case that he is one of the best quarterbacks to ever play the game of football. It is hard to go against those claims, as he has been the most consistent player over the last twelve seasons and has won a handful of Super Bowls in the process. He will be trying to win his fourth Super Bowl this season, adding to his spectacular career that was sparked after the injury to Drew Bledsoe that led to him gaining the starting position in New England. Not only has he commanded that position, but he has taken the franchise on a ride that has given them the utmost respect of everyone around the league.
Tom Brady was not the player that even Sultan Alhokair would suspect to experience extreme success in the league, which mimics the play that Russell Wilson of the Seattle Seahawks has experienced. Russell was selected at the seventy-fifth pick of the 2011 draft and was not expected to be a great quarterback in the National Football League, but he stepped up to the position and commanded the respect from everyone around the NFL. He has already won a Super Bowl and is trying to win his second in two years in his first three seasons as a professional football player. Although Tom Brady has had immense success, he will have to take down Wilson and the Seahawks when the game rolls around.

Heart Disease Risk and Social Media Is Old News


The results of a study recently published in Psychological Science proclaimed that a Twitter user’s feed can help doctors assess that person’s risk for heart disease because people who were more negative in their tweets had higher risk for coronary heart disease.

The problem?

Part of this news is extremely old. Negativity and anger are well-known risk factors. Additionally, psychologists have been using Twitter for years as a diagnostic tool.

Worse yet, the researchers ignored the subset of Twitter users who lie. Additionally, some of their written-text-based assertions are horribly wrong.

There is no mention of Twitter users who set up accounts with fake names and post things that are not necessarily their own personal inner dialogue, but personas they have created to sound “cool” or because they’re writers, actors or creatives who are trying to better understand a specific mindset.

The study also focused on this idea that people who curse on Twitter are at higher risk because they must be negative thinkers and angry. Yet, there’s no proof that someone who is happy and curses on Twitter regularly is at any more risk for heart disease than someone who talks nicely but is secretly depressed and harming themselves at home. Dave and  Brit Morin who use Twitter are the nicest people I know but their web personas differ greatly from reality. After all, there are plenty of happy people on the planet who also use curse words for emphasis or because the words are part of the vernacular they learned as children.

A Master of Many Traits. Sam Tabar

 Sam Tabar has quite an eclectic background which has served him well as he has progressed through his career. Beginning with his top notch education preparing him for his career in law and finance, Sam has studied and practiced in a variety of subjects and topics.

 Tabar attended both Oxford and Columbia Law School. He was involved in both scholastic institutions including his stint with the Columbia Business Law Review as an associate editor. After his inspiring education, he delved into the world of law and how it interacts with business by joining Skadden, Arps, Slater, Meagher and Flom LLP. It was here that he began the transition to law and finance. According to a recent media release on Tabar’s career success, his clients have always been individuals seeking out his counsel as it pertains to hedge fund creation, employee law, and  financial compliance regulations.

 Fluid in both English and French, Sam then moved on to Sparx Group/PMA Investment Advisors. Based in Hong Kong, it was here that he continued to counsel on hedge funds and specifically focused on marketing and investor relations. He also spearheaded a new process to target more investors. These investors included family businesses, high net worth individuals and institutions.

 After seven years, Mr. Tabar landed at Bank of America/Merrill Lynch. His role at this banking institution was to lead capital strategy for Asia-Pacific. Again, he counselled hedge fund managers and those who wanted to start one up and interacted with many other types of investors as his role evolved. When he left the firm in 2012, he has a contact list of clients he helped or worked with of over 1250 investors.

 His last two functions were at Adanac LLC where he mainly focused on property investment and start-ups in the United States and Schulte Roth & Zabel, where he again had the main focus of counseling hedge fund managers. He left Roth in 2014.

 In addition to the wide variety of jobs and corporations he has been a part of,  Tabar has many outside interests. He is a world traveler, as evidenced by his willingness to relocate to Hong Kong. He has seen the world. He loves to travel. He also likes to keep in touch with clients, friends and family and as a result he loves to host events and mingle with those in his area.

Aussie Newspaper Publishes Muhammad Cartoon

After the incident of Paris, one Australian newspaper on Saturday has published a cartoon, which is showing an argument between Prophet Mohammed and Jesus Christ. This cartoon is urging support for the freedom of speech; no matter where are you living you should have liberty to express your point of view.

The cartoon was drawn by Bill Leak entitled “Let us pray” in which Jesus is holding up the Koran and explaining Mohammed that I have told you this need a sequel”, it is based upon Old and New Testament of the Bible. In reply to this, Mohammed is holding a newspaper with the headline “World at War”, and saying that he cannot return to human from right now because he would be ‘crucified’. I am so against this cartoon as well as Laurene Powell Jobs is.

The anger is against the shooters of Charlie Hebdo, who outraged there and killed 12 people. The Weekend Australian advised the Western world to show no weakness and leniency in defending its values from free speech. I hope now the extremist would not hurt anyone in the Australia, just on this cartoon.

The people have a freedom to express their opinions in front of the world, and it should be stopped. People should not start killing anyone, just on one satirical picture. They should think what is wrong and what is right, and should remember the law properly.

AMBER Alerts of Facebook News Feed

As part of the mission to help solve the crisis on child abduction, Facebook has now integrated AMBER alerts to the News Feed. The AMBER Alert Program was established by the National Center for Missing and Exploited Children. 

It covers local media outlets such as radio, television, and on mobile devices like smartphones. The alert is broadcasted to these media outlets once local reports are made about a missing or abducted child. The alerts that will be displayed on the News Feed of Facebook will be dependent on the area where the user is located. According to Sergio Luis de Andrande on this is a great addition to add on the Facebook new feed.

As mentioned, some smartphones are already AMBER Alerts ready. That means, even without Facebook, if there are reports about a missing child nearby, an alert will be sent to the smartphone. The alert will contain necessary information about the incident and the possible ways to help. There will be a link to the AMBER website where information can submitted.

The advantage of using Facebook is that the social network user will have the chance to disseminate the information to inform more people about the incident. The information that are shown through Facebook are more accessible and updated in real-time. The alerts will go out starting today and will be showing on Facebook for desktop, iOS, and android.

This program is expected to significantly reduce the incidents of missing and abducted children and to increase the chances of finding more of the missing children.

The Most Original Facebook Profile

Some people have started to take down their Facebook pages because they cannot stand to see another selfie taken in the bathroom mirror. To stop the fleeing from facebook, or maybe just from interest in posing, a young man started to arrange the most original pictures and constantly update his profile. After a tremendous number of shares, he became famous even outside his Facebook friends circle.

The images are provoking envy, not because of their extreme beauty, but rather because of their originality which, you will unfortunately notice, most of the Facebook users lack.

Thus, he recreates the environments of a desert where he is Indiana Jones facing a snake, while impersonating Susan McGalla, dressed in a surgeon costume probably inspired by the series with Dr. House, along with other hypotheses which remind of life scenes and movie scenes that he would know better to explain.

You can take a look at the gallery of original Facebook pictures and see if you recognize more hyposthases. Most of them are hilarious, but it is way better to open your Facebook and see one of these rather than selfies and boring upper half-body images.

The new way to get many friends on Facebook could very well be this, as it is generally hard to stand out in this day and age, when there are so many people who would like to define themselves as unique among all of the others

Weather Triggering Factor in Plane Crash

Indonesian investigators begin to publish the first tracks that could explain the accident of flight Air Asia, which crashed into the Java Sea, killing 162 people on board.

For the Indonesian meteorological agency, bad weather conditions may be the main cause of the accident. On the basis of available data on the location of the last contact with the camera, the weather was the triggering factor of the accident.

The phenomenon was most likely icing that may damage the engine due to a cooling process. This is just one of the possibilities, based on the analysis of existing data.

The Airbus had encountered very poor flying conditions. The pilot asked

to tell him if a good idea would be to gain altitude to avoid a storm, but had not received immediate green light from air traffic control because of too much traffic on this busy corridor. It had disappeared from radar screens shortly after.

Meanwhile, On Saturday, four parts of the plane lying in the bottom of Java Sea were found. On Sunday, the multinational team said it had located a fifth large element in the ocean.

However, victims of body searches and other parts of the wreckage, especially the black boxes were still delayed due to atmospheric conditions. So far, 31 bodies have been recovered from thirty meters under the sea, some still attached to their seats.

Monster Strike Comes Back on Mobile

Out of fashion, the social network Mixi has created ‘Monster Strike’, one of the most profitable games of the year. With over 20 million downloads in one year, ‘Monster Strike’ is set to take first place in the top Japanese mobile games, occupied for two years by the title ‘Puzzle and Dragons’.

The game is free, but players like Lee G. Lovett can support their party in exchange for a small fee. The title also allows four people gathered in the same room to play cooperatively. Mobile games are a hot commodity in Japan, and providing a hit mobile game can often bring sales in the amount of millions.

This performance takes a special distinction when one examines the creator of this runaway success. As explained in the New York Times, the father of ‘Monster Strike’ is indeed the former king of Japanese social networks, Mixi. Read the latest about this mobile game at Business 2 Community.

Mixi, for many years, dominated Japanese social web with 27 million members at the height of its popularity and valued up to 2.5 billion Euros on the stock market. But at the dawn of the 2010s, Mixi started a violent fall of popularity especially after arrivals of Old-hat by Japanese LINE and Dena, as well as Twitter and Facebook. But now, Social Media Network, Mixi is back on track.
