When people living in and around the city of Houston were confronted by the destructive powers of Hurricane Harvey entire neighborhoods found themselves sitting in nearly five feet of water. Of the many companies that hurried to respond to calls for help, Stream Energy was among the first, providing financial support and ease up on charges to customers living in affected areas, helping people in need recover from this natural disaster.
Stream Energy has long supported an internal culture that has leaned towards contributing to philanthropic organizations. Charity has become part of their daily business, and has led to the creation of Stream Cares, a charity that looks to partner with others that aid in causes that line up with their goal to help Texans and all Americans.
As a business, Stream energy benefits from Stream Cares as well. By using the company name, it stands out in the energy industry and in the wider public eye as a charity that is sincere in its consideration of communities that surround them and the people who live there.
Stream Cares has invested into developing that reputation by working with influential organizations like the Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity and developing partnerships that can affect enduring change over a period of years. Both in Texas and across the country.
An example of this is their partnership with the Hope Supply CO. Both have invested a great deal of interest in addressing the rapid increase of homelessness in thestate of Texas. Their event, a Splash of Hope, allowed more than a thousand homeless children to spend a day full of food and fun at a Texas water park. The day ended with the children receiving financial and material support that could benefit them and their families.
This kind of charity is fairly common among corporations in the US, but not in the state of Texas, which is seen as one of the least charitable in the entire nation. Kimberly Girard, Senior Event Manager for Stream Energy, sees this as an opportunity to continue to do good while influencing other companies to do their part in helping their communities.
The asymmetry of information among investors, especially international investors has been a nagging problem over time. Sahm Adrangi took note of this fact. He treated it as a gap in the market (as it is) and formed the Kerrisdale Capital Management. currently, he holds the title of Chief Investment Officer. This formation was in the year 2009.
Adrangi prides himself on the ability to carry out quality research. This is what has currently drawn him such a large loyal customer base. the large market for information necessitates Kerrisdale to release findings on multiple avenues. They include third parties (as Seeking Alpha), through the company’s Twitter account and even on their website.
Exposure of foul play and attempts to cleanse the market is the main objective of Sahm Adrangi. For instance, he recently commented that he prides in the fact that performance of Globalstar, Inc. has flopped by 50% since the company released a report (which took them a very long time of carrying out research).
Kerrisdale is a company that has established a very strong corporate culture. Mos of this could be attributed to the amount of discipline that Sahm Adrangi aims at maintaining despite being the founder. This discipline was seen all the way from the first job that he took up as a trainee journalist in Toronto’s Globe and Mail.
His passion for journalism is very evident from his actions. Sahm chose to pursue a career in the field of journalism even after graduating from the University of Yale with a degree in Economics. He expects this same enthusiasm from his employees. That is why he maintains a very steady policy on how he takes up employees in Kerrisdale. Only strong and bold analysts and writers are usually hired. This is to ensure they produce quality publications for both internal and external use in the company.
Sahm Adrangi is a person who strongly pushes for growth and results from what he chooses to engage in. That is why the company’s capital grewfrom $1 million to $150 million just within six years. This has been admired by other companies in this field and some have even assimilated their strategies within their operations.
The world of business can be a rough and tumble business that takes no prisoners. It also can create a whole lot of opportunity, innovation, and wealth. Not everyone climbs the branches of success, so you have to be dedicated, knowledgeable, and persistent. One man came from humble beginnings to become a successful and thoughtful leader.
In such a short period of time Louis Chenevert accomplished quite a lot at United Technologies Corporation. In his last position there he was Chief Executive Officer, President, and Chairman for the corporation. He used his vast knowledge, great instincts, and business smarts to launch United Technology Corporation into a leader in their industry. He started his journey in college at the University of Montreal’s business school called HEC Montreal. A native Canadian Louis was born there and lived there during the early part of his life. He would go on to start his career and first job in Canada at General Motors at St. Therese, Quebec. He was the first line supervisor at their assembly line plant. Chenevert would eventually work his way up the company. Fourteen years later Louis joined Pratt & Whitney, a division of the super corporation UTC. In his leadership role he cut down production time of an engine from two years to nine months. That cut down manufacturing costs by 10 percent in one year.
Louis Chenevert knewthat Pratt & Whitney’s GTF engine had potential to spare so he joined the mother corporation United Technologies Corporation after over a decade at Pratt & Whitney. He joined United Technologies Corporation as Chairman. In his role as Chairman Louis encouraged UTC to invest in the most advanced technology to super boost the GTF’s enginepotential and boy did it pay off. $10 million dollars later and they created a clearly superior engine that cut fuel burn by 20 percent. They also cut down the cost of the engine’s lifetime by 30 percent and noise by 50 percent. All the money and investment paid off in spades because now this particular engine is used by 14 airlines and in 70 aircraft.
Waiakea is located in Hawaii,in the native language it stands for ‘broad waters‘ this is the perfect place to bottle water! Not just any type of water either, we are speaking of volcanic water. Hawaii is well known for it’s volcano’s but the idea of water being healthy from it is not make believe. The beautiful area along with its residents host many expensive homes and a state forest reserve.
What is now called Hilo Bay, was originally called Waiakea Bay the area itself goes for miles, it is a district of the Big Island of Hawaii. The stretch ends at Waiakea-Uka an area on the slopes of Mauna Loa. This is home to where the volcanic water starts its journey.
The organically sourced Waiakea water has something that is very important to a humans over all health and that is alkaline. The volcanic water benefits are many, if you have ever suffered from acid reflux it has been found that the alkaline found in Waiakea water helps to neutralize the acid in the stomach. The Waiakea water pH helps your body maintain a more stable pH level itself. Another important element inside Waiakea water is silica, it has more than the recommended dosage of this because of the alkaline nature of the water. The silica is known to slow down the ageing process by reducing the cognitive decline, that can ultimately lead to Alzheimer’s disease.
The Waiakea Hawaii volcanic water is purified by means of running through 14,000 feet of the volcanic rock found in the Mauna Loa volcano. The name means ‘Long Mountain’ as Waiakea benefits from one of the most active volcanoes with the ability to purify water with natural minerals such as calcium and magnesium. The process gives the water a pH balance of 8.8.
You can enjoy drinking healthy volcanic water as you spend some time touring the Waiakea Forest Preserve, you can plan a picnic or just enjoy watching the beautiful sunsets, all from 640-acre lava flow. Another thing to note is that the area also has some of the most important ground based astronomical observatories.
