When a customer visits a website a marketer can gather information about the length of time a customer spent on a website, the website that they visited before and which items or services that they clicked on. This has proven to be information that is very useful to marketers as they seek to shape their marketing campaigns and to determine how to best reach out to existing and potential customers. The Internet of Things however can take these advancements in information gathering much further than they already are.
The upside of the internet of things is that objects that are largely inanimate or “dumb” can now be embedded with devices that collect information and data. “Smart” objects that are part of the Internet of things, as opposed to the internet that most consumers know that is comprised of interconnected computers, often collect data in order to offer an enhanced benefit to the consumer. For instance there are smart sneakers that are designed to be able to collect information about the distance that the person wearing them has run. Some of these smart sneakers are tied into a network that has information about statistics on the distances and times that other runners with smart shoes have run so that a runner can compare their performance to other people’s. Developments like this might be useful to a fitness enthusiast or to someone who is training for a marathon. While these information gathering abilities were likely originally developed in order to be useful to the consumer who had purchased the shoe they can also be useful to marketing professionals companies who want to learn more about whether their products are actually as useful to consumers as they had intended them to be and to gather more analytics that will be useful to marketers who want to develop the most compelling messages they can in order to connect with consumers.
Entrepreneur and futurist Jason Hope believes that the Internet of Things can potentially be very useful to marketers today and to the marketers of the future. On the surface it might seem as though the internet of things does not have much to do with marketing, but in an article for Tech.co Jason Hope dismantles that assertion by drawing a strong connection between the possibilities that the internet of things holds for the world of marketing and how those possibilities can transform the profession in a good way. According to Jason Hope the Internet of Things will make marketing better through allowing marketers access to more consumer data than has ever been possible before. While social networks have provided marketers with precise targeting that allows them to get their message in front of the right consumer the Internet of Things can give marketers more precise information that tells them exactly how a product is being used by a consumer or where and how a consumer purchases a product.

It is often common knowledge to know where to go when a certain part of the body is ailing or in need of some type of maintenance. For example, when your teeth hurt then you was go to the dentist. When your feet hurt most anyone knows to go to the podiatrist. However, do as many people know what to look for and where you go to when it is the mind that needs healing or maintenance? Fortunately, the answer to these questions are easily understood. And, in the case of where to go its just a simple name remember Neurocore.
As far as knowing what to look for when there is a question of mental health, a big problem to keep an eye on is depression and the different forms at it comes in. Just like there are different types of burns the body, there are different types of depression of the mind that can vary in their severity and longevity. Some of the more common forms of depression are Major Depressive Disorder, Persistent Depressive Disorder and Seasonal Affective Disorder. These basically differ in the times and range of a time they spend affecting a person.
But, no matter the type of depression that a person is experiencing, they can always go to Neurocore to find the help they need to reach optimum levels of mental health and performance. The professionals at these centers are trained in finding the different elements that can effect a persons mental health whether they are severe or just superficial. But, the centers do not just focus on fixing mental ailments. They also have a interest in building metal strength and endurance.
To this end, there is a program with Neurocore that monitors the brain waves of patients and uses positive reinforcement to increase brain strength. This is done by prompts in the form of the movie that help to keep a person focused on what they are supposed to be thinking about. When focus drops the movie stops. When it is regained the movie continues. This is a scientific and time tested method that yields results consistently.
Even though America considers itself to be a nation that follows a system of democracy, the reality is far different. With the current political party in power, there is no secret that a large number of people in these high positions have only got there by paying huge amounts of money. These people may be owners of large organizations, but do not have the experience and knowledge of the political aspects of the country, which is why there is so much turmoil happening around us. The reason for this is because there is no transparency in the government.
Large organizations are allowed to donate to political parties as and when they like, without having to worry about anything else or the public finding out how much they have donated. This, however, leads to a whole other side of politics where large, influential people pay money in exchange for positions in the government. This has resulted in the government now worrying about only large organizations and how they can please them, rather than the people.
End Citizen’s United is an organization that was formed to combat this problem and to once again bring order to the American government. People in the country feel like their views and opinions in the system do not matter because they do not have the money to act as a microphone for those thoughts. People are now in a position where they have to keep quiet about all the things that they want to change and are just in a position where they have to adhere to what businessmen want to make. This has only been possible because of the Supreme Court’s ruling of ‘Citizen’s United’ where companies could donate to political parties without being questioned or accounted for. People want to have transparency in the political systems, and that is what End Citizens United is working towards. People want to be part of an organization that is working to bring change and want to be part of something that understands them and their needs, unlike the political systems which are the people who should be doing this.
The organization was founded by a group of people who share similar interests and who want to bring about change in the government. The organization has received an incredible response from people all over the country who want to be part of something that gives them the importance that they truly deserve. Within a few months of the organization coming into existence, End Citizen’s United raised almost four million dollars, which has helped them in their efforts at bringing about amendments in the government. Within the next year or so, the organization is projected to receive over thirty million in donations.

He holds a position as managing partner to Hager Pacific Properties, a company which owns and manages hundreds of properties across the country. Even with his notable and successful career in the real estate industry, Adam Milstein has also worked to become one of the most active and well-known philanthropists in the Jewish community.
Milstein is deeply involved with the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation, whose goal is to strengthen Israel as well as help young Jews get in better touch with their roots. The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation is run by Adam Milstein and his wife, Gila, and due to his extreme dedication to community and philanthropy, Adam Milstein’s name was recently added to the Philanthropists & Social Entrepreneurs Top 200.
Milstein is very outspoken when the situation involves protection of Jews and the oppressed, and as his wife is an immigrant to the U.S. from Morocco, he understands the view of the marginalized and is an advocate for them. Adam Milstein also speaks about the necessity of Jewish people being more connected to their culture and religion.
The Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation recently held a competition for pro-Israel memes, which stretched to six continents and over a span of two weeks brought in over 300 entries. A voting process was done and the final winners were chosen by a panel of seven college and high school student activists. Of 18 winners, $2,000 was split between them.
Some of the winners had memes that were focused on the love and pride of Jewish people in Israel, such as emphasizing the brother and sister-like community amongst the Jews. Adam Milstein was quoted as saying that the contest was “incredibly successful,” and that the “images submitted were funny, entertaining and often poignant”.
As a sophomore at U.C. Davis and member of a Jewish sorority, Dana Benavi said that she loves looking through the memes on Facebook, and that they help to lighten the mood back on campus.
