The New Establishment Summit of 2016 will be held October 19th and 20th in San Francisco. It will feature a number of well-known speakers; among them the CEO of Amazon and the Vice President of Apple. Additionally, billionaire Kyle Bass has been added to the Summit in a controversial move that has many financiers keenly focusing on the event.

Kyle Bass is perhaps best known for his 2008 short-sell of sub-prime loans on Wall Street. Bass saw that the American housing market was headed for a dive that would undercut the prime investment banks of the area, so he made his financial wagers accordingly. In the end, Bass made a fortune and gained instant international media recognition.

But Kyle Bass is a desperate gambler, and has a number of skeletons in his closet. Some of them he’s trying to play off as natural residents, perhaps; like CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. CAD is a scam that Bass regularly exercises publicly. It involves tricking the sick into getting lawsuits filed and petitions put into action against big-ticket pharmaceutical companies. The net result is a loss in stock value for the pharmaceuticals. When the stock drop hits, Bass is quick to short-sell his holdings with those companies, making a fortune. Meanwhile, the companies are forced to cut funding to departments who can’t regularly demonstrate ROI. One department that struggles in quantifiably consistent Return On Investment is Research and Development. As a result, it is often cut when budgetary concerns begin directing a pharmaceutical organization, and the final result is that the sick are in many ways worse off than they had been previously: at least then new cures were on the horizon.

In addition to CAD, there’s Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner. No, the skeleton reference isn’t a crack at her physique; but it is a crack at her poor financial leadership of Argentina, whom she has economically defaulted twice in just thirteen years. Yet Kyle Bass continuously supports the decisions of this socialistic despot.

Considering CAD and de Kirchner, billionaire Kyle Bass’ presence at the New Establishment Summit of 2016 silhouettes an alarming financial perspective among the elite.

Relmada Corporation has recently had some issues with well-known investment bank Laidlaw & Company. Ladilaw has recently been releasing false information about Relmada in order to gain control of their corporation. While Relmada is continually releasing positive press releases about studies of their new products, Ladilaw is trying to devalue the company in order to more easily control the majority of their shares. Relmada has successfully filed a temporary restraining order injunction in order to keep Ladilaw from further damaging their company. This is something that has put the minds of many Relmada executives at ease at least for the time being. The Street has gone into deep detail about the many different issues that are happening due to the constant harassment from Ladilaw.

Ladilaw & Company has been an investment bank that has been creating a lot of change in the market since 1842. In the recent years, however, Ladilaw has changed their investment strategies which was alarming to those in the industry. Matthew Eitner was appointed as the Cheif Executive Officer in 2010 which changed the direction of the company. Eitner was much more aggressive than any leadership had been in the past for Ladilaw. This has been a catalyst for problems such as the one experienced with Relmada. James Ahern has been a leading cause of this new found change in Ladilaw as well. As leader of capital markets, Ahern has spent the last 5 years taking Ladilaw to a whole new level. Some critics believe the growth has been due to a do whatever it takes tactics that really leaves companies in the dust. It will be imperative to Ladilaw’s growth to change the mindset of the leadership. If there isn’t a drastic shift made, the future growth of Ladilaw may be in jeopardy.

Doug Levitt is a singer and songwriter that has traveled across the country writing songs about the American experience. While this might sound typical of many singers in America, Doug Levitt does something a little more unique by using his journey on Greyhound buses as the inspiration for his art. Given the pride that people take in traveling privately by car, it’s only natural that the type of people Doug found on his journey were the kind of people that were desperate to get from point A to point B, and didn’t have the resources to take something a little more luxurious.

Referring to this ongoing project as the “Greyhound Diaries,” Doug Levitt hopes to inspire people in the same way as when similar efforts were undertaken in the 1930’s. When people find conflicting ideologies tearing them apart, it’s nice to have an artist remind us that we’re all in this together. Through Doug Levitt’s artistic endeavors, listeners are reminded of the connections they share between each other.

Aside from his artistic background, Doug Levitt also worked in London for a time period as a foreign correspondent. Interestingly, he worked in this capacity for both ABC and NBC. Since that time, Doug has moved on to traveling the country through the aforementioned Greyhound buses. After traveling over 100,000 miles as a part of this project, Doug has used his songs, pictures, and stories to create a rich tapestry of not just the American experience, but the human experience as well.

For those interested in Doug’s work, he routinely travels the country, appearing in free public concerts. In addition, Doug has set up a website so that people can easily access his collection of photos and stories. If you’ve ever wondered what a cross-country journey by Greyhound bus would be like, then you should visit Doug Levitt’s site and see what it’s all about. Doug Levitt’s journey took him through not just the cities of America, but it’s small towns as well, creating a much more vivid picture of the American landscape than any movie or television show could accurately capture.

A lot of CEO’s like to talk a big game, but when it comes time to actually putting their plan in motion, they are oftentimes hard to find and they disappear. They just say things to make themselves feel good and look good. However, a recent article, which can be read here,, proves and shows that Bob Reina backs up his talk with action. He is the founder and CEO of Talk Fusion, so he knows a lot about talk, but he knows just as much about action, if not more, which is the wonderful thing about Bob. There is a quote in the article which sums up everything that Bob Reina is about and everything that he stands for and that quote is, “With great success comes greater responsibility.”

They discuss in the article his motivation to want to do more and help more people. Sometimes in life, that is half the battle, having the motivation to actually want to go out and do it. People can tell when your motivation level is not there or you are simply going through the motions. With Bob Reina, he is as motivated as they come and nothing stands in his way when he sets his mind to something and accomplishing it. He is going to do it and he is going to do it the right way.

The article also discusses some of the great things that Talk Fusion offers from Video Email, Video Newsletters, Live Meetings, Sign-up Forms, and Video Chat. Another thing stood out in the article to me and that is the fact that Bob likes to hear success stories. Bob is spending a lot of time with this and CEO’s can get quite busy. Bob, however, is never too busy to hear a success story such as someone that has helped out friends and family financially thanks to this product. This is the kind of impact Bob is having, as people are giving back to their friends and family the same way that Bob has given back to non-profits. It is promoting the idea of giving back.

One of the great things about working with Diversant is you know you are working with a company that has your best interests in mind. They aren’t just interested in how they can profit off you or their own self gain. They truly care about the future of IT and working with staffers and employers. They believe it works best as a partnership with everyone on the same page and everyone doing what they can for each other. That is how things work out for everyone in the best manner. They have their heart in the right place and they truly care about you and have a personal touch.

I believe many companies lack a personal touch in today’s business world. They don’t know how to communicate with their clients, get through to them, understand them, and find out what they want. Needless to say, that is a big part of the job, a huge part in fact. Communication can oftentimes be a lost art form in the IT world. The better the communication is between all parties, the better everyone will be in the long run and the happier everyone will be. After all, everyone wants to be on the same page and everyone wants the same thing when it is all said and done. Nobody likes an unhappy customer.

When it comes to the personal touch, perhaps no one does it better than John Goullet.
