Jim Tananbaum Shows Interest in Mindstrong Health, a Start-Up Health Tech Company

In Mid June 2017, Mindstrong Health, a start-up focused on neurological device, reported that it had successfully managed to raise $14 million – according to Mass Device. The funds were raised during the company’s Series A round of financing. The contributions will be used to support Mindstrong’s neuropsychiatric treatment as well as its diagnosis platform.

The AL- Powered platform is designed in a manner that allows the monitoring of interaction on Smartphone devices, an approach that provides objective measures of the brain function. The move was motivated by the fact that the treatment of other chronic illnesses such as diabetes and hypertension is usually based on objective measures – an element that is completely missing in the treatment and handling of patients suffering from neurological disorders.

Mindstrong’s platform intends to offer continuous digital biomarkers of cognition and mood that includes components such as attention, memory, executive function, and processing speed. Dr. Tom Insel, the co-founder, and president of Mindstrong pointed out that mental disorders are a global health challenge, and the availability of Smartphone will go a long way in delivering a global solution.

According to a Medium.com article, the Series A round of financing was spearheaded by Foresite Capital Management (headed by the founder and CEO, Jim Tananbaum), ARCH Venture Partners, and was later joined by One Mind Brain Health Impact Fund, Optum Ventures, and Berggruen Holdings.

Securus Technologies Helping Protect Local Residents

When my team is called on to help catch a dangerous suspect in the area, we have to act quick because innocent lives are at stake. This was a very troubling situation because two brothers were released from prison the same week, and both returned to their life of crime almost immediately after getting back on the streets. These two suspects were armed, and they were already responsible for a shooting that night. It was clear to us that these two had little regard for officers, so if an innocent victim got in their way, they would have little trouble seriously hurting that person.

 

My team had a long road ahead because both of these suspects had a huge network of friends helping to keep them from going back to prison. These friends would go as far as call in fake reports to throw us off the trail of these suspects, making it more challenging because we had to deploy resources to each of those calls instead of focusing on the two suspects. I was about to turn this case on its end when I headed to the local jail for some evidence collection. I knew that there were inmates in the prison who had dealings with these two, I was just hoping there was one person who had a beef with them and would slip up and give me the information needed to finally catch them for good.

 

Securus Technologies recently installed a very complex inmate call monitoring system in our prison, and it was going to aid me in finding these suspects. Securus Technologies CEO, Rick Smith, says all of his thousand employees are dedicated to fighting to make the world safer for us all. When I learned how to use the LBS software, it didn’t take long to pick up chatter between inmates concerning my suspects. The system does the work of many corrections officers, so we knew it was only a matter of time before we had the information we needed.

 

The inmates were talking to the suspects in some cases, where the suspects would call me out by name and say if I decided to find them that I would have a gun fight on my hands. I was able to use the information collected from the Securus Technologies monitoring system to locate where these two were hiding, and with the size of weapons at that location, we didn’t arrive a minute too soon. If those two had the chance to prepare, we could have had a gunfight on our hands that would have lasted hours, Instead, we were able to catch them sleeping at dawn and completely catch them off guard without weapons in hand.

Norman Pattiz And His New Marketing Study

Norman Pattiz is the CEO of Westwood One, and he has worked quite hard at ensuring that the radio industry functions in the best way possible. This article explains all the things found in his new study that was commissioned to look over advertising sector, and there is a look at how he plans to use this information for future success. Norman has done quite a lot to make the industry better, and he will continue to do so for some time.

#1: What Is Westwood One?

Westwood One is one of the largest radio networks in the world, and Norman has built it up over many years.

He has ensured that the brand will continue to offer the best talk and sports radio in the industry, and he is searching for ways to ensure that the brand will serve everyone well. He wants the brand to offer something that the public does not have, and he derives his revenues from advertising.

#2: Brand Recognition

Brand recognition is quite important as it is what businesses need when someone hears their ads. The study shows that brand recognition is quite high with radio ads, and someone who is trying to make better advertising decisions will repeat their ads many times over.

The ads will help the customer remember something that they have heard many times, and it will help them when they simply need to be reminded that a company is in the area. The brands are recognized more often than not in random questions offered to regular listeners.

#3: Grocery Stores Do Well

Grocery stores have done quite well in the past, and they continue to perform well on the radio. Every radio ad that is created for the grocery industry offers a higher value to that company, and they may advertise their specials in commercials that will be easy for the customers to take part in.

The customers are accustomed to hearing from these brands, and they will shop with these companies often as a result.

According to Crunchbase, the radio advertising study from Norman Pattiz and his partners is showing how the advertising sector of radio works. The companies are making quite a lot of money from advertisers, and they must have a much clearer idea of how to manage these ads that they sell. The ad time may be used to the advantage of money companies as their brand recognition rises.

The Lung Institute Is Providing the Body with a Little Extra Help

Health can be a surprisingly complex subject. People who’e been fairly lucky with their health usually view it as a binary. Health is the norm for them and if that changes it’s only going to be for a very short period of time. But there’s a shockingly large amount of people who don’t have that luxury. People who suffer from chronic health issues will instead exist in a fuzzy state of health. The days when their health is at a low point will be quite bad. But even their best days are going to be put under the shadow of impending discomfort or pain. It’s vitally important that people never give up hope for a cure though. Medical breakthroughs do eventually turn into viable treatments.

A recent example of this principle comes from the Lung Institute. Most people are probably somewhat aware of stem cell based medicine. It focuses on the use of the body’s basic building blocks to repair damaged tissue or organs. It was big news for quite some time as researchers discussed how it might solve a number of different medical issues. But it takes some time for a medical breakthrough to turn into a proven treatment. One of the first successful applications of stem cell therapy is providing huge improvements in some patient’s lives. What’s even more impressive is the fact that the Lung Institute has been able to accomplish this in a fairly user friendly way. See, https://lunginstitute.com/treatment/.

High tech cutting edge treatments might conjure up images of imposing medical devices. But the Lung Institute has been able to reduce much of the patient’s direct experience to a simple blood or bone marrow sample. The first step really does just come down to a patient giving a tiny sample to the Lung Institute. From there, the patient can rest assured that the experts are hard at work. That one small sample will quickly turn into a powerful collection of medicinally active stem cells. Even more impressive, these stem cells will be recognized by the patient’s immune system as just another part of his or her body.

According to lifestylesafter50.com, the stem cells are reintroduced into the patient’s circulatory system and will quickly be delivered to damaged areas of the lungs. This is where the fact that the stem cells are native to the patient becomes especially important. The patient’s body will recognize the stem cells as something which should, naturally, be present within damaged lung tissue. As such the patient’s body won’t be trying to fight off the medicine. The Lung Institute ensures that the stem cells will be delivered right to the areas where they’re needed and then begin to reconstruct damaged parts of the lungs.
