Sheldon Lavin steering OSI group to greater heights every day

Sheldon Lavin, a household name in the world of Food processing companies recently let the world know about his untold story in an interview with the French Tribune. During the same interview, he gave the A to Z story of how OSI grew from a humble family meat company to a global conglomerate with sixty-five branches spread in over sixteen countries. OSI’s has been in the game for a century now having been established back in 1909 by Otto Kolschowsky but thanks to a great management panel led by Sheldon Lavin, the company has seen monumental growth and with its growth came a long string of acquisitions. Take a look at how this happened.

Brief Overview of how Sheldon Lavin became the cornerstone of OSI

As mentioned earlier, OSI group began as a meat market situated in Chicago. Even though it was not that big, it still managed to meet and surpass the expectations of its clientele base. The company got its big break in 1995 after McDonald’s chose it as the main hamburger supplier. In a bid to meet McDonald’s demands, OSI which was known as Otto & Sons back then established a special plant in 1973 which was specifically dedicated to McDonald’s. This is when Sheldon Lavin came into the picture as a partner.

Before joining the firm, Sheldon had been serving in the financial sector for quite a long time and had worked with various A-list banks. Thanks to that, his move to the company was well thought out because he brought with him skills that would prove to be highly instrumental to steering the company towards success. He first joined as a third partner but after one of the brothers sold his stake he became a half partner and the company was renamed to OSI group in 1975.

In 1980, under the excellent leadership of Sheldon and the two brothers, the food processing company opened two additional plants in the US to meet the demands of its customers and also expanded into a list of other countries such as Spain, Germany, Brazil, Mexico, China, Brazil and a few others. He later took over as the company’s CEO when the other brother retired and since then he made expansion of the company his primary objective and he has stayed true to it by procuring more assets, working together with the rest of the management team to try and meet the demands of the customers and coming up with strategic moves which benefit not only the company but the environment too.

Under Sheldon Lavin’s belt, OSI group has expanded into other sectors such as fresh produce, poultry, and beef. Thanks to that, clients get to enjoy the convenience of having every product they need under one roof plus products are customized to suit what they want. It is due to such factors that OSI continues to win not to mention the various partnerships, acquisitions and great leadership from Sheldon Lavin that the company is now among the top 100 private equities in the USA. Sheldon is indeed a force to reckon.

The New Path of the Chainsmokers.

The Chain Smokers are just two years old in the music industry but what they have done is immense. They have received many awards within a short span of time from their hit songs. They started back in 2015 with their song “Roses” which earned them a spot among the Top 10. The production of their magnificent work can be attributed to the fact that they not only produce but also sing in their productions.

The Chain Smokers reached their peak after winning the Grammy’s with the song “Don’t Let Me Down,” which also brought Daya to the limelight. The group has also been able to achieve the feat of dominating the billboard charts having a twelve-week streak on top of the table. Such success with just two years can bring about demand from fans seeking more from the duo. The Chain Smokers have been on their toes producing their latest single “Sick Boy” which has taken the industry by surprise due to the message conveyed.

“Sick Boy” unlike the previous music by the duo talks about the ills of the society. The society has taken the role of the judge and jury prosecuting certain individuals without necessarily getting to know their personalities. This has a long-term effect on the whole community in general as people are discriminated. Social media has made it worse as people have a platform to air out their views without having consequences.

Frustration, anger, and concern were among the feelings that the Chain smokers had when they were coming up with the song. The pair has gained experience in the industry that will be helpful as they take another turn in their music career. The song “Sick Boy” is just the first step into the new path.

“Sick Boy” is aimed to the society that has been dramatically affected by social media with people having a great concern to what they post out to the world to see. This path can be considered to be darker as it may spark various reactions from the fan base but it may also help those that are dealing with the current society.

Roberto Santiago and the Features of the Manaira Shopping

Manaira Shopping was dubbed his most significant achievement by its founder Mr. Rberto Santiago. He strived towards the creation of the Manaira Shopping for many years before he was finally able to lay down its foundations in 1987.


In early November of 1989, the Manaira Shopping opened its doors to the public and achieved immediate success. The highly anticipated mall was not only a shopping center but also put a strong emphasis n entertainment. It has been dubbed as the future of entertainment centers by many publications across Brazil. The mall was the only one of its kind in the country, but Roberto Santiago has established at least one other similar mall, though not as vast.


Located in the state of Paraiba, Brazil, the mall is currently taking up an area of almost 100 thousand square meters. It has 3 180 parking vacancies as well as gardens and outdoor parks. Inside, the Manaira Shopping has 11 Cinepolis movie theater rooms, and two of those are fully catered to the 3D experience.

The Manaira Shopping is equipped with a gym and a pool, it has banking facilities, children’s parks, and buffets, as well as a college filial, The College of Higher Education of Paraiba.


Over the years, the mall has been expanded and updated every year or every other year. The last expansion was made to the inside parking lot which got another level to fulfill the growing demand. One of the largest expansions of the Manaira Shipping was inaugurated on its birthday in 2009. To celebrate the milestone, Manaira Shopping established the Domus Hall. It is a vast structure on top of the Manaira Shopping.

Adam Milstein Calls Out The Leftist’s Bigotry 

Adam Milstein, an Israeli American, real estate entrepreneur, and philanthropist has created quite a buzz in certain corners of the web with his newest article published on JNS (Jewish News Syndicate). For those who are unaware; JNS is the fastest growing news agency covering Israel and the Jewish World. Milstein’s piece entitled “Unlikely Radical Alliances Fan the Flames of Anti-Semitism Worldwide” is a scathing indictment of the left’s unique brand of hypocrisy and bigotry.

Milstein begins his piece affirming the already present bigotry, antisemitism, and racism found in certain sectors of the far right. Home of hate fueled organizations such as the Klu Klux Klan, Jihadist, and other (insert race) supremacists and (insert religion)extremists. What is surprising is the new allies in anti-Semitism are found on the far left of the political spectrum. While radical Muslims are known to suppress the rights of women, homosexuals, and any minority to be within their sphere of power. Radical leftists who consider themselves social justice warriors, champions of human rights, and overall liberators of the oppressed have been aligning themselves with radical Muslim groups and ideology.

So how does the ultra left legitimize their staunch support of radical Islam’s bigoted extremes? Adam Milstein muses that leftists have a difficult time separating mainstream Muslims from radicals. Instead they are grouped together as an oppressed people held down by western civilization and the Nation of Israel. Indeed radical Muslim groups spread deceptive propaganda vilifying Israel as oppressive to all Muslims and not just defensive against radicals. The radical left has indeed swallowed these lies whole.

Citing several examples, Adam Milstein highlights the hypocrisy of the left in action beginning with political activist Linda Sarsour’s decision to champion an unindicted co-conspirator of the 1993 World Trade Center Bombing during her speech “Jihad against Trump”. Likewise at Tufts University a leftist inspired publication entitled ” Disorientation Guide” referred to Israel as a “white supremacist state” and regurgitated radical Muslim ideology calling Israel a colonial occupier instead of recognizing Israel as a sovereign nation. Yet another example happe ed at an LGBT (Lesbian Gay Bisexual Transgender) event in Chicago where supporters of the LGBT community were expelled for marching with a star of David on their pride flags.

The article continues with Adam Milstein drawing a correlation between modern day radical leftists and the Iranian Revolution of the 1970s in which Islamists were able to garner much support from the radical left. However once the power shifted the left was decimated by radical Muslims. He concludes with a warning that antisemitic leftists who have allied with Islamic extremist are indeed a threat to all Americans and Jews around the globe. After pondering the contents of the article one can conclusively arrive toward the opinion that it seems any alliance with radical Muslim groups seems to only favor radical Muslim groups. Food for thought…

Psi Pay Discusses the Future of Payments

The variety of alternative payment options keeps expanding more and more and some of them are pretty interesting. While paying for your transactions with a watch or a smartphone has been around for a while, PSI Pay is working with Kerv Wearables to introduce a new type of payment method. This new type of payment method is known as the Kerv ring and it is the first of its kind in the form of a ring. Not only is it stylish coming in different colors and sizes, it also makes it so consumers don’t ever have to carry cash or even a plastic card ever again.


The world is constantly changing with the times and things seem to be getting smaller. We now turn to our smartphones not just for communicating, but also to browse the web, get our news, run games, and take HD pictures. The ways that we use technology will continue to evolve and change with the times to make everyday tasks and processes more and more convenient and faster.


The Kerv Ring by PsiPay is completely unique and is accepted at millions of retailers around the globe. With this technology, PIN numbers are a thing of the past as well as having to give the merchant any of your banking information.


Alternative payment methods are becoming more and more popular and there are many reasons why PSI Pay sees them as being the direction transactions are taking. People are carrying cash less and less with the average being only a few dollars being kept in people’s wallets. In just the last 2 years, almost half of all people polled said that they don’t carry as much cash as they did just a couple years before. This is most popular among millennials where 32% of those polled thought that we wouldn’t be using wallets at all in the future. Not only are these alternative payment methods like Psi Pay’s Kerv ring more convenient, they have great security features that traditional cards do not offer.


“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” the satire America needs

For Sean Penn’s new book “”Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff”, he sat down with Trevor Noah and Vogue Magazine to discuss its unique format, lack of plot structure, and satirical look at the affairs of the United States. Penn told Noah that the book looks into the “dark side” of human nature, in which people can be drawn to fascist tendencies. He goes on to mention that democracy, when exported to other countries, has issues not falling into fascism, mainly due to its dark features and the issues of humans. Penn also told Vogue that he has no intention to continue acting because he wants to continue work on the book. The main character in the book is Bob Honey, an angry American who as a side job goes on killing sprees in which he takes out older people with a mallet. He thinks that they are standing in the way of process.

Penn told vogue that the book seems to be a parallel plane to the #METOO movement and this seems clear in the book. Bob witnesses the 2016 presidential election, and later even writes an angry letter to the president, tell him that he is not fit to run the country. Penn tells Noah that Bob is supposed to represent the drive in Americans to serve their country, even if they have no purpose or cause to do so. This seems to be one of his main critiques of American politics and democratic culture.

Aside from the book, Penn talks about his life experiences that could have influenced the read. For example he talks about his hate for Trump’s comments on Haiti, and his interesting friendship with the late Hugo Chavez. Penn seems to have developed a love for the third world, and a feeling that democracy isn’t always the only solution. He then critiques the war on drugs, and talks about how his meeting with El Chapo was crucial to understanding it.


Hiral Tipirneni Attempts To Close Gap

Can the unthinkable be done in Arizona’s Eighth Congressional District’s special election? That is what politico’s from around the country are wondering as today (April 24th) is the day voters come to the polls to make their decision. One thing is for certain, it seems by all accounts that even if the Republican candidate wins it is going to be at a much, MUCH smaller margin than statewide conservatives would like to see. Hiral Tipirneni, the Democratic candidate, has made an absolutely spirited campaign to flip the ruby red district and polling trends heading into Tuesday’s election have shown that there is in fact a distinct possibility that Tipirneni emerges victorious and completes the historic upset.

One major factor in Hiral Tipirneni’s success is attributable to End Citizens United which has been a major force both in the realm of donations and with support in the field during Get Out The Vote efforts the last few days. End Citizens United (ECU) was created in March of 2015 and has made a name for itself by identifying politicians willing to stand against the disastrous Supreme Court decision that allowed corporations to spend essentially unlimited amounts of money on elections, thus bending the rules of the game in their favor. If you can believe it, ECU has raised $100,000 in small-dollar donations for the Hiral campaign and no matter what happens at the ballot box on Tuesday it is a guarantee that ECU will have played a major factor in the success of the Hiral Tipirneni campaign.

It is impossible to look at the Arizona 8th Congressional District race without thinking of Connor Lamb’s upset victory in Pennsylvania just a few months ago. While this suburban Phoenix district certainly is tilted with advantage towards the Republicans, the Hiral campaign has gone above and beyond in painting the E.R. Physician as a political outsider who is more interested in policy answers to help the working-class than she is concerned about special interest donors according to Another major thing in common with the Lamb race? Both candidates were endorsed by ECU. While it is going to take everything they have and more to deliver a Democratic victory, the support of End Citizens United is quickly becoming viewed as instrumental for any progressive candidate looking to pull off a major political upset.

Fans of transparency and justice alike will have any eye on Arizona on April 24th, and if Hiral can pull off the upset then it will be just another datapoint that ending special interest influence in politics isn’t just the moral thing — it is a winning electoral strategy as well.

Wes Edens Took A Unique Route To NBA Ownership

Wes Edens is not your typical NBA owner and he took a unique path in order to achieve this goal. After graduating from Oregon State University in 1984, he was hired by Lehman Brothers three years later. Edens worked his way up to managing director over the course of the ensuing six years.After becoming a partner as well, Edens decided to move on in 1993 and it was at this time that he decided to join the BlackRock Asset Investors team. He became a managing director and partner at this firm as well.Fortress Investment Group was the next stop on his road to success. When the group was founded in 1998, Wes Edens was one of the five principal partners involved. He helped to oversee the company’s first initial public offering and he is responsible for what the firm has become today.He was also instrumental in assisting the company during their resounding rebound in the wake of the subprime mortgage crisis.

Stock prices fell precipitously during this period but thanks to the help of Edens, it did not take long for Fortress Investment Group to bounce back.When longtime owner Herb Kohl finally elected to sell the NBA’s Milwaukee Bucks, Edens came together with Marc Lasry to submit the winning $550 million bid. The team was in danger of moving to a different city before the purchase but Edens has pledged to invest the money that it will take to build a new arena.He is also placing a major bet on the world of e-sports. Over the past few years, he has made a number of investments in this realm. It started with the $2.5 million purchase of a League of Legends team in 2016 and continued in 2017 with the establishment of the FlyQuest league.

Wes Edens was not content to stop there, though. When the NBA decided to establish a professional NBA 2K league where top notch gamers could compete against one another for real money. 16 of the 30 teams in the NBA have elected to create teams for this venture and it is expected to be instrumental when it comes to engendering fandom in the younger demographics. Console gaming is believed to be one of the key factors in creating younger NBA fans who will grow with the product and Wes Edens is placing a crucial bet on this direction. If his track record is any indication? This is a bet that is about to break his way.
