CEO of Sightsavers, Caroline Harper, talked about trachoma in Vancouver in order to bring attention to the very present problem that many people face in some areas of the world. Trachoma is one of the largest causes of blindness, and it is infectious. Harper was wearing a pair of tweezers on a chain around her neck to represent what lengths girls in Africa have to go to in order to gain a small amount of relief from the horrible effects of the vicious disease. They use tweezers to pull out their eyelashes that are rubbing on their corneas because of the scar tissue that causes them to become introverted.
Over 182 million people are close to becoming blind because of the disease which is preventable and treatable. This one disease is wreaking havoc on entire communities. Fortunately, thanks to alliances in global health, many countries have been able to eliminate trachoma. Morocco was one of them and banished the disease in 2016. In 2017 Mexico, Laos, and Cambodia were rid of the disease as well. About six other countries are not far behind.
They would not have been able to achieve their freedom from the debilitating diseases if members such as Sightsavers had not joined forces together and worked together under the SAFE strategy. SAFE is short for surgery, antibiotics, facial cleanliness, and environmental improvement. It is an effective strategy that works and the Tropical Data service is making it possible to gather important information on where such programs have been successful and where they are needed.
The Audacious Project part of Sightsavers has included trachoma as one of its projects since they realize that the only thing preventing many countries from having complete freedom from the devastating disease is simply resources. Ridding the world of trachoma is a huge but attainable feat.
For a long time, notes and coins were the only form of payment one could use. As technology advanced, people got used to paying with debit and credit cards and many began to use those solely. More recently, contactless payments through mobile phones became more popular as they have come to be accepted by more and more businesses. We think we’re living in the future, but there’s a company called PSI-Pay that is pushing the technology even further. Now you won’t even need a cell phone to make payments.
Physical money is being used less often now and there’s a chance it might just disappear. In Britain, 50% of all transactions are now made through cards. In the UK as a whole, electronic transactions have outnumbered cash payments for the first time in history. The game is about to change thanks to PSI-Pay and their new contactless payment ring. Through a partnership with Kerv Wearables, Psi has created a ring that will allow you to complete a transaction by simply waving your hand. The contactless ring uses RFID technology and provides for an easy checkout without even needing to punch a pin.
In case you’re worried about someone hacking into your ring, it has been engineered to work at a very close distance only. In the case that an unauthorized user might get the chance to use it, the company has provided customers with a zero liability insurance. The contactless payment system is becoming so common that it has even reached the Church of England. Dozens of Churches in the country are now equipped with terminals able to receive donations through contactless electronic payment. The UK Cards association provided information that over 100 million contactless cards have recently been issued.
PSI-Pay is receiving good feedback
In 2014, PSI-Pay’s revenue increased by 15% and benefited from a gross profit increase of 43% from the previous year. For 2015, the company benefited by yet another financial increase. Income revenue again increased by another 45% and volumes increased by nearly 30%.
The company has continued to see a steady growth and increase in revenue. It expects to continue growing over the next couple of years. PSI-Pay Ltd is authorized by the FCA and is a Principal Member of MasterCard®. PSI-Pay is recognized worldwide for ecoPayz, their secure online digital account system. PSI-Pay’s system has now spread to 173 countries and allows customers to complete transactions in 43 different currencies.

The company based in Washington DC provides persons and organization with web and mobile tools that help them mobilize their support through information dissemination they can also use platforms to fund raise and receive feedback from their supporters.
NGP VAN was formed out of the idea that the landscape of the United States campaign has changed from a time where it involved the candidates doing a labor-intensive drive to a period where the battles are run virtually through technologically intensive methods. The internet has been used to reach out to people who are far and wide, and within concise time information can be shared.

Political parties that make use of new technologies in their camping strategies always improve the popularity of its leaders significantly. An excellent example of such a person is President Franklin De Roosevelt who harnessed the power of radio and television which was new concept than to run his campaigns effectively and it saw him get re-elected to office in four terms. Barrack Obama through the NGP VAN utilized the internet and other technologies to mobilize voters, a web-based platform which enabled his supporters to host meet-ups and engage in canvassing became the very pillar of his success in being elected to office.
The use of technology as a campaign strategy is however complicated than it seems, the tech landscape is changing at a breakneck pace with new ideas and inventions outsmarting earlier developments. Founded in 1997 as a Voter Activation Network NGP VAN has developed software suits that collect and analyze voter information to track the campaign progress and encourage voters to connect with the campaign. The tools provided also help donors to easily and quickly donate funds using a platform that keeps track of donations and donors making it easy for the political parties to file the contributions with the Federal Election Commission. The company has also developed mobile applications due to the high use of the Smartphone to reach an extensive section of users.

Established in 1998, Fortress Investment Group is a top notch, and highly diversified investment manager with about $ 40 million assets under its management. As of the end of 2017, the company registered tremendous growth thanks to the high qualifications of its leaders. More than that, this firm has continued to thrive under the management’s leadership dockets.
Moreover, Fortress Investment Group has often welcomed new partnerships depending on the objective they have to the business. That is why recently, the management announced its acquisition. Of course, for a company to receive buy out requests, there must be something positive it is up to. In the case of Softbank Group sealing a deal to acquire Fortress Investment Group, the explanation is vivid and cannot be doubted. To understand why Softbank Group decided to acquire Fortress Investment Group, let us peruse its portfolio;
Softbank is one of the largest companies in the world not only by revenue but also in service delivery. In fact, the company has been rated the 72nd largest according to one Fortune Magazine. Over and above, it is the seventh largest firm in Brazil. Following these features, it is evident that Softbank is in a position to acquire Fortress Investment Group. However, that is not the only point for acquisition. From the look of the entire transaction, the company has identified a particular market that requires its technological input. Therefore, to be successful in this project of finance, the company has decided to buy significant ownership shares from Fortress Investment Group.
First announced in early 2018, the transaction has been completed, and Fortress will continue to be led by the current management of Peter Brigers, Randal Nardone, and Wes Edens. Perhaps this is a strategically placed to maintain the firm’s ability to deliver its services exquisitely. From the look of the transition, Fortress Investment Group will continue to offer the same services henceforth. Here are some of the services the company has provided for years;
When it comes to service provision, Fortress Investment Group prides itself on having extensive industry knowledge in the companies it invests in. Over the years, the firm has developed a strong team of investment managers who boast of significant expertise alongside relationships that can contribute to the growth of the company.
The General Observation
Although Fortress Investment Group is shifting to Softbank Group, the company will retain its leadership and ensure that its purpose in the financial services industry is fulfilled.
