A lot about nothing

Jericho and Pattiz taking podcasts to another level

Are you afraid of the dark? Have you ever feared being abducted by aliens? Has a nightmare ever shot you out of bed in the middle of the night? Have you ever seen a shadowy figure that has left you trembling, fearful of where to plant your next step?

 

Well, we’ve got the podcast for you. It’s called, “Beyond Darkness,” and it’s all about UFOs and aliens, ghosts and goblins, demons and cherubs, miracles, spells, and death wishes. The podcast will be hosted by Dave Schrader and Tim Dennis. The two are veterans of the supernatural world and the podcast industry. Schrader comes to his post as a prominent author and radio host. Dennis, meanwhile, has led a long and successful career as a radio host.

 

The two will interview guests and debate experts on paranormal and otherworldly phenomena. The podcast will be part of the famed PodcastOne Network, the home of Chris Jericho’s podcast.

 

Jericho, a former WWE star, recently explained how thrilled he was to add the Beyond Darkness podcast to the PodcastOne roster. He did advise listeners to be cautious, however. They might start suffering nightmares, after all.

 

While Jericho might be a star of the network, the true inspiration of the network comes from another man who has long dominated his industry just as Chris Jericho has dominated the WWE ring: Norman Pattiz.

 

Pattiz, the original founder of the network, today serves as its Executive Chairman. In a recent statement to the media, he lauded Chris Jericho as the network’s MVP. He went on to say that the network’s goal was always to expand outside of the wrestling world, and develop a stranglehold on the podcast industry in general. That’s where Beyond Darkness, which will debut a new episode every Monday, comes into the picture.

 

Pattiz founded the network in 2012, after working in the radio industry for 40 years. His network has grown by leaps and bounds since it entered the fray. Today, it’s the country’s largest advertiser-supported podcast network. Aside from Jericho’s podcast, it also hosts those of such celebrities as Neil Strauss, Jay Mohr, and Dr. Drew, along with Adam Carolla.

 

Podcasts are much like radio shows and, long-term, the radio industry seems to be migrating over to podcasting. Unlike radio shows, listeners can download podcasts and listen to them whenever they want. The podcast hosts, moreover, have much greater freedom as to what they can discuss.

Sujit Choudhry: Leading Expert In Constitutional Law

Comparative law is the study of the different legal systems across the world. It involves the study of the differences and similarities in common law, socialist law, civil law, Canon law, and religious laws of different cultures. This study of law includes the analysis of foreign legal systems and the importance of this analysis has grown significantly in the present age with the growth of economic globalization, democratization, and internationalism.

This study of law began in the 18th century, with Montesquieu given the title of being its founding father. Comparative law was taken even further by Sir Henry Maine, whose works on legal institutions in primitive societies and discussions on legal traditions were widely read. Rudolf Schlesinger brought the study to the United States, where he taught Comparative Law at Cornell Law School.

Comparative law is used to gather deeper knowledge of effected legal systems, to help perfect legal systems, and can contribute to unification of legal systems. This study has branched off into many disciplines like constitutional law, comparative civil law, comparative administrative law, comparative criminal law, and comparative commercial law. All of these disciplines work together to help show how constitutive elements differ and how they combine to create a system.

Sujit Choudhry is a leading expert on comparative constitutional law and has years of experience as an advisor to constitution building processes in places like Libya, Jordan, South Africa, Nepal, Egypt, Sri Lanka, Ukraine, and Tunisia.

His research has addressed many issues including constitutional design in divided societies, design as a tool to manage transitions to peaceful politics, decentralization and secession, language policy, and basic methodological questions.

Choudhry is an accomplished author, with extensive writings on Canadian constitutional law. He has over ninety published articles, reports, and working papers. He has been published by renowned places such as Cambridge and Oxford. He is currently a member of the Executive Committee of ICONS, the International Society of Public Law. He also sits on the Board at organizations like the International Journal of Constitutional Law, the Cambridge Studies in Constitutional Law, and the Constitutional Court Review.

He is also the Founding Director of the Center for Constitutional Transitions. This helps to mobilize knowledge and supports constitution building by creating and leading networks of experts to lend evidence-based policy options to practitioners. The Center for Constitutional Transitions partners with international organizations. He is also a consultant at the World Bank Institute at the United Nations Development Program and is a member of the United Nations Mediation Roster.

The Prodigious Lefkofsky’s Start-up Project: Tempus

Eric Lefkofsky is an entrepreneur as well as a liberal person who has carried out many charitable activities on behalf of the community in Chicago. He has co-founded and successfully headed several companies including Lightbank, Groupon, Echo Global Logistics, Media Ocean as well as InnerWorkings. Most of his endeavors seek to embrace and implement the latest technology to bring out the best.

Most of his humanitarian works get done through the charitable trust he and his wife Liz started in the year 2006, Lefkofskys’ Family Foundation. Through it, they have been able to support and improve the quality of life of the people in Chicago by promoting education, health, art and culture, technology as well as human rights protection. One of the greatest start-up project that Lefkofsky has invested in and which brings out his philanthropic being and love for other was through Tempus.

Eric Lefkofsky is a co-founder and the CEO of the technology company, Tempus which was created with the aim of battling cancer. Use of latest and advanced technology is what makes the mission of Tempus to be achieved because it helps physicians to provide personalized care to cancer patients. They do this through the artificial intelligence provided by the machine learning platforms. Through the services offered by the company the physicians gets the required and accurate data about a patient so as to make real-time decisions based on the data received. Tempus aims at providing a massive database where the doctors can be referring to before treating other patients.

For data analytics, Tempus uses deep machine learning as well as genomic sequencing to as to get the real information on every patient’s tumor. It also provides the doctors with phenotypic, molecular and therapeutic intuitions within the clinical setting so that they can deliver the best standard of care to the patients. Tempus’ analytic platform enables all the physicians to intensely understand the patient’s cancer by collecting and analyzing massive genomic data through the use of proprietary algorithms. Through this analysis and the combination of other patients with same molecular profiles, the doctors can give a personalized treatment such as therapies that are approved by FDA.

The results gotten from the dynamic analysis can then be validated through the use of Vitro and in Vivo Patient-derivative biological models before they are clinically deployed. Tempus applies independent as well collaborative testing with doctors and researchers so as to develop an automated cell-culture technology that helps build a report about the patient’s cancer condition. The report also details the information to be used by the physician to develop a personalized care plan and treatment for the patient.

Tempus might be the long awaited solution for cancer treatment and through the technology applied the cancer patients might as well be helped to live longer. Lefkofsky believes in the risk that will make a difference to the lives of the victims of the deadly disease, cancer.
