Shervin Pishevar decries the lose of fall Silicon Valley in a tweet storm

After a 21-hour long tweet storm by Shervin Pishevar early this year where he talked about the US economy, globalization, cryptocurrencies, and other finance-related issues, it is time to look at some of the predictions he made. He has quoted a link on the Bloomberg Markets Watch which indicates that the markets have entered a correction phase and a rate hike is imminent. The predictions he made about a shift in the economy are now coming out true. His brilliance in making correct predictions is attributed to his business endeavors. He has spent all his career life making projections on businesses that are likely to perform well in coming years.

Shervin Pishevar is venture capitalist who have worked in the Silicon Valley for a long time. He has supported startups such as Uber to develop into Unicorns in a short time. His tweets about the declining stock market were proved a short time after. The stock market recorded a drop a large drop within one week.

Shervin Pishevar has proved his understanding of the economy by predicting matters that turned out exactly as he had predicted. He has also shown that his opinion should never be ignored by anyone who is in the investment industry. He can provide some good points that indicate some of the things investors should look into before making any decision.

Shervin Pishevar has decried the impact of the US monopolies in the tech industry. Five companies have shown monopoly tendencies. Amazon, Facebook, Alphabet, Microsoft, and Apple have shown that they do not mean well for the startups. They are making it hard for any startup in Silicon Valley to thrive. These are some of the reasons Pishevar tweeted that Silicon Valley is losing its competitive edge.

Shervin worked with President Obama in the creation of the Startup Visa Act which was meant to support immigrant talent in the United States. This act was meant to facilitate immigrant talent in the United States. However, it failed to pass through the Congress, and Pishevar insinuated to this as another factor that has contributed to the decline of the Silicon Valley as the leading innovations hub.

Waiakea Water Re-imagines the World of Bottled Water

Bottled water is a multi-billion dollar industry that reaches the far corners of the world. One company brings a new spin by turning back to natural sources, and limiting the impact that the plastic bottles have on the environment. According to their website, sales of Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic water are based on a model that emphasizes people, and planet, over just profits.

Established in 2012, Waiakea Water is sourced from Hawaii, the name is even a compound of two words that translate to “broad waters” from the native Hawaiian language. Waiakea’s filtration and purification process is sourced from that same spot, the result of rain and snow melt filtering through 14,000 feet of porous volcanic rock, down the Mauna Loa Volcano. The result, is Hawaiian volcanic water that has been enhanced by the addition of natural minerals and electrolytes. The natural filtration process also gives Waiakea water it’s alkaline ph. This unique process ensures the volcanic water benefits in each bottle.

In addition to the emphasis on the people and the individual health benefits of Waiakea water, the company also focuses on planet. Waiakea water has been certified a carbon neutral company, due in large part to its use of low-emission vehicles to deliver products. In addition, 2018 saw the release of the first fully degradable plastic bottle in the world. All of Waiakea’s bottles are made from recycled plastic, but the degradable bottles reach a new benchmark for sustainability by breaking down up to 98% faster than traditional plastic bottles.

Waiakea’s mission statement declares their intention to “ provide naturally healthy, delicious, Hawaiian volcanic water with as little impact as possible, while contributing to and promoting conservation and access to clean water and education for people in need throughout the world.” They seek to achieve those goals by combining the health and sustainability initiatives mentioned here with their charitable contribution program. Through a partnership with Pump Aid, for every liter of water sold, Waiakea donates a week of clean water to those in need. Waiakea is also committed to Hawaii, by partnering with the The Kama’aha Education Initiative, committed to advancing academic success for Native Hawaiians.

In this case, Waiakea’s volcanic water benefits extend beyond the award winning taste of one bottle.

How Marathon Pharmaceuticals Revolutionized How Children’s Veins Are Accessed

Marathon Pharmaceuticals, LLC, is a Chicago area company that develops, manufactures, and commercializes specialty medications. They provide treatments for a number of diseases such as cancer, central nervous system disorders, and gastrointestinal diseases. They were founded in 2008 and have a number of medications that have received FDA approval.

One of their most popular products is ZiNGO which is now being used in pediatric hospitals and clinics across the nation. Children who need their blood drawn or are about to have surgery is what this product is used for. Without the use of a needle, it numbs the area around where a vein needs to be entered by a medical device. The child doesn’t feel any pain and so it is much gentler on them and reduces the pain and anxiety that they experience. This has proven to be Marathon Pharmaceuticals top-selling product. (thenewsversion)

Dr. William Zempsky of the Connecticut Children’s Medical Center called ZiNGO a breakthrough product. In the past children either needed to deal with the pain of having a vein accessed or else nurses would use a local anesthetic which would take up to an hour to become effective. This made using local anesthetics very difficult to use because the healthcare environment is too fast-paced to wait for one to become effective. Before ZiNGO was introduced nurses had to forego patient comfort which was especially troublesome with a child patient who needed to have their veins accessed several times a day.

Another product that Marathon Pharmaceuticals has on the market is Amytal Sodium. This is a barbiturate derivative which is used to sedate patients. It depresses the sensory cortex and hence the entire central nervous system. This results in the patient having reduced motor activity as well as being drowsier. It is used as a short-term treatment for patients who are experiencing insomnia. They also have a similar product on the market called Seconal Sodium. This medication, also a barbiturate derivative, is used on patients who are going into surgery as a form of a pre-anesthetic.
