Mark Ahn is an individual in the world of entrepreneurship that has really pushed the industry forward. His experience in the military, academia, and business give him a very unique and fresh perspective on the world of leadership. Mark Ahn has been observing the different styles of leadership in the world of business and there are some remarkable things that he has come to learn. He has spoken on some incredible new trends in leadership that are bound to push the world of entrepreneurship forward.

In the world of leadership, Mark Ahn states that you must be able to learn from those who have come before you. If you are in a leadership position where you have those who have been a part of the organization longer than you, you should listen to what they have to say. The information you can receive from individuals who have come before you is priceless.

Leading with integrity is something that Mark Ahn claims to be one of the most important aspects of effective leadership. If you are not leading with integrity, your employees will have no motivation to follow a corrupt leader. Individuals have their own moral code, and it is very hard to try and get them to follow a leader who does not have a strong moral code of their own.

PR Newswire also reports that Mark Ahn is very adamant about leading by example. If you want your organization to run a certain way, run your own life that way. You will be able to much more easily portray ideas and beliefs to your employees if that is the way you are living your own life.

Remaining humble is something that is very important to do as well. No one wants to follow an arrogant leader. This is very important in remaining an effective leader.

A Dark and Brooding Crow

The Crow film has stalled once again and this is a real shame. I shared what Gianfrancesco Genoso posted on hotfrog.com-that the original series should have – and would have continued for years – had Brandon Lee not been tragically killed. Sadly, the young man left our world too soon. The impact of The Crow was very powerful due to the impossible to ignore cloud of its star’s death.

The script for the new Crow film is going to attempt to tap into those raw emotions once again. Supposedly, the remake will be “emotional and brutal” and this raises a pertinent question.

Will the film turn out to be a raw, R-rated film? A “raw” film would indicate more serious themes. The comic book mini-series that launched The Crow was dark, depressing, and violent. Bringing an adult-oriented Crow to the screen could prove to be a bad decision. The first Sin City film reflected a R-rated comic adaptation that made money. The sequel died miserably. The very R-rated comic adaptation Old Boy was another mega flop. Pushing the hard R limits in a Cow film might be a bad idea. A lot of mainstream viewers could be turned off although the hardcore fans might enjoy the approach.

Honestly, we might never know how a Crow film is going to turn out. The project has been delayed so much it may never end up being produced. What a shame it would be if this happened since The Crow really does deserve a reboot.

US Senate Majority Vote: Climate Change is Not a Hoax

The united States Senate voted 98 to 1 that climate change is, in fact, real, and can be proven scientifically. The vote is a result of the controversial Keystone XL pipeline, which has been on hold for nearly a decade. The Keystone XL pipeline would carry oil from the tar sands in Alberta, Canada into the lower portion of the United States.

Republican Senators who are in favor of the pipeline decided to sidestep the climate change issue, stating that they are not scientists, and therefore cannot state unequivocally whether climate change does, in fact, exist, which skewed the vote in favor of those who believe in climate change as a scientific fact.

Senators who are opposed to the Keystone XL pipeline are using the results of this survey as leverage. They are stating that mining Canadian oil sands would hasten the effects of global warming. This vote is a historic move for climate change activists and concerned citizens like Dave and Brit Morin because climate change is one of the most important issues today.

North American Spine Rings In Six Years Of Helping Patients

North American Spine has released a report through PR Newswire, and picked up by Becker’s Spine Review, that states that they have been helping patients with back, neck, and spine problems, for over six years now. The Dallas, Texas-based company is celebrating six years of helping their patients to recover from back and neck pains. Although the company is based primarily in Dallas, Texas, they have other locations in different areas, which receive many different patients, from different demographics. The help that North American Spine has given its patients is invaluable, as shown by country music singer, and also songwriter, Larry Gatlin.

After suffering from leg pains for over 47 years, Larry went to a North American Spine, in order to help ease the pain he’d been feeling for so long. He now claims that he only has some soreness in his leg, which is much better, compared to the large amounts of pain he used to be in. He claims that North American Spine has changed his life for the better, and he’s grateful for what they’ve done for him. There are many success stories such as Larry’s, because North American Spine has treated over 8000 patients to date.

With an over 83% success rate, North American Spine has had great success with their AccuraScope procedures. Many are suffering from back, spine, and neck pain, which plagues them on a daily basis. When the pain becomes chronic, meaning that it lasts for six months or more, it is problematic, and surgery may be required. Although many people suffer from back pain at one point or another in their life, chronic back pain is not normal, and needs the attention of a doctor. Many have sought out North American Spine, in order to permanently relieve the pain they are seeing on a daily basis.

Dr. Darren Schuhmacher, Who also works with North American Spine, has released a statement, stating that the work that North American Spine is doing, is revolutionary. He also states that the procedures performed, can provide lasting relief for those suffering from pain. The AcuraScope procedure only requires a very small incision, in order to insert the scope, in order to see inside the person’s back or neck, and determine what the problem is. The surgery lasts less than 45 minutes, and it’s an outpatient procedure. With such a high success rate, it’s understandable why North American Spine is celebrating six years of helping patients to live pain free.

Is the Fantastic Four Getting Clobbered?

It’s Clobberin Time!

I have seen all three previous versions of the Fantastic Four movies. I even own the 1994 boot leg! They were my first introduction into the adventurous world of comic book superheroes, and the ever-lovin blue-eyed Thing is my favorite superhero of all time!

So naturally as a fan with over three decades of enthusiasm behind me, I’m pretty invested in their on screen representation. So its disheartening to hear rumors that the next Fantastic Four movie is having trouble post production. The powers that be have called the project ‘a mess’… Despite wrapping up principal photography last year sets are now being rebuilt and reshoots have been ordered.

I just wonder will there ever be an accurate and fun representation of Marvel’s first family. The 2005 and its sequel in 2007 were definitely fun, but I wouldn’t call them accurate. There were some definite gems, but you had to pick them out. I think that it could’ve gone better if it was produced by someone with more vision like Tom Rothman. I also thought that Chris Evans and Michael Chiklis representations of the Human Torch and the Thing were spot on, especially with love/hate the buddy chemistry. I even enjoyed the plot-line where Dr. Doom stole the Silver Surfer’s power.

I just hope that director Josh Trank is able to capture the Fantastic Four’s sense of camaraderie, heroics and exploration that is so evident in the comic books. That would be truly fantastic.

Jonathan Veitch President of Occidental College in LA

Jonathan Veitch was born in 1959 and resides in the Los Angeles area. He is currently the president of the prestigious Occidental College in LA, where he has been for the past six years. He was elected president of the campus in July 2009, following provisional president Robert Skotheim. The college had had a difficult time and changed leadership many times before Veitch took the helm. Previously he was a professor at the “University of Wisconsin.” Though he gained recognition for being a major influence at a fabulous institution, he also achieved some notoriety from writing the book “American Superrealism.” His goal was to change things at the college, including the improvement of relations and expanding the campus to be able to accommodate more students.

Destined for greatness, he got his first degree from Stanford University. After his undergraduate degree, he went on to further his education, by receiving a doctorate from Harvard in American Civilization. Because he holds both degrees in history and literature, his goal has always been to focus on the expansion of the campus body and their liberal arts program. He has achieved major success in the short six years that he has been in this position. The student body has increased more than 1,300 students, but there is no expansion plan at this time. Due to funding cuts and rough economic times, expansion will be delayed.

The prestigious position he obtained was not by luck. Not only has he worked hard, but he also comes from a prominent family in the LA area. His step-grandfather is Alan Ladd, the famous actor. His father, John Veitch, is the President of Columbia Pictures. Though he worked hard to obtain his stance in life, he also had the help of a prominent family to assist.

He took a brief sabbatical from his position as dean so that he and his family could move into the presidential home on campus. He and his wife Sarah have 3 children together. His plans are to be in this home for the next decade. With his recent celebration of turning 50 years old, and his move, things are continuing to look up for the dedicated career man.

The future of the college is at his control. He is not just another president; he has put his heart and soul into his work here. He has a personal interest in the college and has vested much time and effort. He had a brief role as president at the New School’s Eugene Lang College in New York City. This gave him the foundation he needed to go on to bigger and better things at Occidental College.

You Must Have Been a Beneful® Baby!

Standing in the pet aisle at the grocery store, as I made my selection from the variety of Beneful® wet and dry dog foods, I was reminded of my first introduction to Potter, my first grand-puppy. I was looking forward to the coming visit of Potter with his human family and I wanted to make sure to have everyone’s favorite foods on hand.

Potter was only ten weeks old when my son and daughter-in-law adopted the pint-sized brown terrier mix from a rescue shelter in San Francisco. Determined to provide their furry family member with only the best, they started him on Beneful® Healthy Growth for Puppies dry dog food. With so much love and the best diet, Potter grew into a handsome young dog, with a sleek and shining coat, perky black-tipped ears and the most expressive, sparkling eyes. No longer a puppy, he still gets the best diet with the Beneful® adult collection of dog food.

Chuckling as I picked up a bag of Beneful® Playful Life dry food, I thought how appropriate that it is Potter’s favorite, because he is the happiest and most playful dog I have ever met. I always enjoy the family visits, and to see the way Potter adores my son and daughter-in-law just warms my heart. I even take pictures of him to post on Twitter. He is so much fun to play with. One of his favorite games is having us take turns rolling his squeaky orange ball across the floor for him to catch and carry back, to be rolled again. I am so glad that he has been given the finest diet from the start, to help ensure he will be around for a long time to come.

Adding some Beneful® Prepared Meals™ to my grocery cart, reminded me that Potter has the very best doggy manners. He almost never begs during our family dinners, probably because he enjoys his own meals so much. Potter loves the variety of Beneful® wet foods, and I appreciate that his favorite Prepared Meals™ come in resealable containers.

Tasty treats are always on hand at my house when family gathers, and that includes the assortment of Beneful® Baked Delights® Hugs™ dog snacks for Potter in my cart.

Thanks to the Beneful® line of dog foods and snacks, I headed to the check-out, confident that I would be serving healthy and tasty fare to all my visitors.

Meet the Multi-Dimensional Bruce Levenson

Generally speaking, Bruce Levenson is greater as a whole than any one of his multidimensional parts. From beating the streets for a story for either the Washington Star or providing valuable information through the Observer Publishing energy information newsletter prior to co-founding and launching the United Communications Group in 1977, Mr. Levenson began his career helping others with whatever and wherever he saw a need. Throughout his college and business career path he continually demonstrates his concern by lending a helping hand to his fellow citizens whenever he can.

Through the years, Bruce Levenson, has been proactively involved in a diverse assortment of philanthropic ventures from his participation in the Community Foundation of Washington, D.C., the Hoop Dreams Foundation, to spearheading the Washington D.C. chapter of the, I have a Dream Foundation, as its president. Levenson knows and demonstrates the importance that education plays in helping impoverished and low-income children pursue the goal of a receiving a higher education.

By looking at only one aspect of this man, Bruce Levenson is to be doing an extreme injustice on the man and his wife as a whole. When we look at this man through the eyes of understanding that we all have different compartments to our lives, and that each of those compartments influences, and effectively creates the people that we are and will become. This is never more evident than in the multidimensional life of Bruce Levenson, and his wife, Karen Levenson.

When seeking to learn about the people and influencers in our society, we should learn to look at the person as a whole, instead of focusing on the individual parts to a person. That’s the case with Bruce Levenson. We all grow, change and develop, at different rates, and many times, we only want to see people as a one dimensional being, instead of seeing the bigger portrait of the person that is truly displayed.
