    Just so my listeners are aware, I have a physical disability called Friedreich's ataxia which is a form muscular dystrophy and it affects my speech. But I try my best to speak as clearly as I can! I do hope that any child with or without a disability can look up to me and realize that as long as you do your best, you can do whatever you want in life too.

    Was Super Bowl 50 A Setup ?

    in Podcasting

     


    With so much money on the line, gamblers tend to scrutinize the Super Bowl more than any other sporting event, wary of the possibility that the NFL, Vegas oddsmakers, or some other party might rig the outcome of the game to suit their own interests. Conspiracy theories began shortly after the game's creation--to this day, some fans and former players suggest that Joe Namath’s infamous Super Bowl III guarantee and the Jets’ subsequent victory over the heavily-favored Colts was rigged in order to drum up publicity ahead of the AFL-NFL merger.

    PBC Allegedly losing $446,127,000 Are Rumors True? Are They In Trouble?

    in Sports

    On This Super Bowl Sunday Edition, the gang will discuss the rumors of the financial losses of PBC and if they are in serious trouble or not?Waddell & Reed's Investment in Haymon: $82 mil. Remaining (of $521 mil.) as of December 31, 2015, self.Boxing
    submitted 9 days ago * by jimwilson128


    Building off of my last post of the Q3 results from the mutual funds managed by Waddell & Reed that invested in Haymon:
    Acquisition cost (initial value) of combined investment: $528,481,000
    Value of combined investment as of September 30, 2015: $214,288,000
    Value of combined investment as of December 31, 2015: $82,354,000


    To date, the investment made into Media Group Holdings, Series H (which invested in Haymon Boxing) by the three Waddell & Reed funds (Ivy Asset Strategy, Ivy VIP Asset Strategy, Waddell & Reed Advisors Asset Strategy) has lost 84% of its value. At this rate, the investment will be worth zero dollars by the end of February, which implies that Haymon will run out of funding at that time.
    Edit: Headline contains a typo. Should say $528 mil.

    You are One Acquisition Away from a Multi-Vendor Environment

    in Technology

    Despite exploding popularity, there is only so much room for technology providers in the telehealth and collaboration markets, according to Dan Klanderman, Senior Solutions Architect for Iron Bow Technologies. He predicts continued consolidation through acquisitions and even market exits in 2016.


    To avoid being stuck with an obsolete technology, Klanderman suggests investing in collaboration technology from a long-term perspective. “Interoperability is key,” he said, and advises avoiding working with technology providers that create siloes or offer technology that doesn’t work well with other technology.


    “Some providers actually design technology as a walled garden,” he shared. “I recommend avoiding that and finding technology that is interoperable with what you already have with a manufacturer that is committed to interoperability.”


    Klanderman says that because hospitals, researchers and others in the industry must be able to reach out seamlessly to patients and each other, interoperability is key to growing with the market. He also pointed out that, like in the tech world, acquisitions and mergers are common in the healthcare industry. “You are just one acquisition away from becoming a multi-vendor environment,” he explained.


    As a result, his motto for 2016 is to invest in a collaboration solution that can flex and grow with you.
