Eric Pulier — Leading both fighters and kids

Along with his world-wide reputation as an entrepreneur in government and enterprise technology and one of 30 e-Visionaries noted by VAR Business, Eric Pulier, Executive Chairman at Soa Software Inc. recently set out (and succeeded) in developing and producing a unique series of computer learning modules for young people with diabetes.

Pulier’s program shows children what is happening in their own bodies when sugar levels rise and fall in response to exercise and physical activity, changes in their carbohydrate intake and diabetic medication. The game is called Starlight Diabetes, a ground-breaking game that lets kids experience what it would be like to actually travel throughout their own bodies as sugar levels rise and fall in response to their diet and their activities. Through it, they learn how their own health is affected by sugar levels and by medication and exercise.

The entertaining game, by means of original animation and music, introduces and features a main character that has since become somewhat of a mascot for teaching children about sugar’s effects. The character has also been featured on clothing and other children’s items.

Although Eric Pulier is well known for masterminding development of programs for helping children and others, this industry leader is also recognized one of the most successful entrepreneurs in both consumer products and military in military technology. As one of the leading businessmen in government and enterprise technology, he has helped found more than fifteen companies and, in the process, has raised hundreds of millions of dollars for these ventures.

Gascon’s Other Side Exposed By Explosive Submissions Made By Delganes

A fiery presentation was recently made against George Gascon, San Fransisco’s District Attorney. It claims that Gascon was close to the police union that he now disparages as obstructionist. He was never concerned about Police Department diversity. It is alleged that Gascon even uttered some racially disparaging remarks in night out with union leaders. These are some of the assertions in a submission made by Gary Delganes, the ex-president of the Police Officers Association. Delganes made his presentation to a blue ribbon task force. The panel was constituted by Gascon to investigate claims of racism and misconduct in the department.

Attorney Gascon had earlier made his submission to the task force. He testified that the union influences the reform implementation ability of the chief of police and even a police commission. Delganes made his submission eight days later. He retired in 2013. Delganes spent 25 years on the police force. He served as POA for nine years.

Delganes recounted a dinner in 2010 when Chief Gascon drunk heavily. The two together with Martin Halloran, the current POA president, and other union representatives were in Cambridge, Massachusetts. They were attending a forum prepared by The Harvard Law School. He started to reminisce about his time with the LAPD. According to Delganes, Gascon made some remarks that annoyed minorities. He became noisy and animated. That prompted an African American patron to request Gascon to restrain himself because his behavior was upsetting his family.

As much as Attroney Gascon may have good intentions now, it is evident that he did not have the same when he was the chief of police. Several allegations submitted by Delganes work against him. The alleged racial texts were sent when he was the chief of police. According to Delganes, during his tenure, Gascon promoted few African Americans. That shows he had doubts about the abilities of the African American captains. Therefore, he cannot be in a position to make those critical comments he made about the San Fransisco Police Officers Association. In addition, making submissions to a panel he set up raises concerns about conflict of interest.

Kate Hudson Dishes on Fabletics

Marie Claire Magazine got Kate Hudson to dish on the new bathing suits and dresses that Fabletics has added to its spring and summer online collections. Hudson is one of the co-founder of Fabletics, which is an online fitness fashion retailer. She was happy to provide a sneak peek into the fabulous additions to the Fabletics spring and summer lines. In particular, Hudson says that she loves the freedom and comfort of being able to slip on one of the Fabletics dresses without having to wear Spanx or take forever to zip it up. The dresses are a breeze to throw on at any point during the day and should make it easier for women to transition from work to fun in the evenings. Hudson said that this is a major reason that Fabletics has done so well with women. She truly understands that women need to be able to fit a bunch of different activities during their day and do not want to deal with the hassle of changing multiple times. When Hudson was creating some of the concepts for the Fabletics line, she kept the working woman in mind and made sure to choose things that she would want to wear herself. As a working mother of two, Hudson clearly understands the daily struggles of fitting everything into a hectic schedule and looking good while doing it.

Fabletics has only been around since 2013, but it has become the authority on athleisure for women. This is because Fabletics has not sacrificed the quality of the materials or construction of its clothing in order to sell its outfits at incredibly reasonable prices. For only $49.95, customers can pick out a new outfit each month from Fabletics with shipping included. This is part of the VIP membership option that Fabletics offers to customers, which is by far the most popular way that customers shop at Fabletics online. There are several physical locations of Fabletics stores around the country, but its website offers the largest selection of the outfits and combinations available on http://www.bustle.com/articles/152217-when-do-fabletics-dresses-come-out-shop-these-athleisure-styles-stat-photos.

Hudson is actively involved in the design and creation of the Fabletics outfits on http://www.fabletics.ca/kates-picks.htm . In fact, she is often spotted wearing different Fabletics options around town in her daily life. She is one of many celebrities who have embraced the athleisure trend in recent years. Fabletics clothing is popping up everywhere, including in celebrity endorsements and gyms across the country.

A Look At Eucatex

The company Eucatex, which is based in Brazil, is primarily focused on manufacturing wooden panels and paints. The company was founded in 1951. From fairly modest beginnings, it has grown significantly. With more than six decades in the business, the company has managed to firmly establish itself as having a fairly strong reputation for itself in the world of construction and furniture.

Heading up the company is entrepreneur and mechanical engineer Flavio Maluf. He became the CEO of Eucatex in April of 2005. However, he has worked at the company for about three decades. In addition to heading up Eucatex, Wikipedia indicates that Maluf is also the president of GrandFood group. He has established a strong track record of successes for himself that stretches beyond his family name.

Of course, the name “Maluf” is one that is well-known in Brazil. Flavio Maluf is the eldest son of longtime politician Paulo Maluf whose political career spanned more than four decades. With such origins, it is perhaps unsurprising that Flavio Maluf has been driven to establish such a strong reputation for himself and the company that he heads up.  Check out what Flavio has said for the finance industry on Abril.com.br

As the company Eucatex moves forward, it appears to be well-poised to continue being successful in a changing world. The company has worked to establish itself as a name associated with sustainability. It has gained both recognition and international certifications for its dedication to sustainable practices. It is working to maintain itself as an environmentally responsible and financially successful model.

Eucatex is also well-positioned to continue to thrive due to its location within Brazil. Its growth and progression as a business is set against the backdrop of the country of Brazil gaining note as an emerging player on the world stage. With these things working in its favor, Eucatex appears to be facing a very bright future.
