Ted Bauman has done so much to earn his recognition as a global authority on economics and financial investments. There are people in the various socioeconomic situations that rely on his information to help them make good decisions. Bauman understands that his role is to provide his readers with a solid source. Because he is so invested in his readership, Bauman often spends more time on research than his contemporaries. This attention to detail has earned him a loyal following. This is one of the reasons why Ideamensch.com wanted to sit down and talk to the writer about his career and what keeps him going.
Ted Bauman earned a degree in economics as a young man in South Africa. He attended the University of Cape Town and began a job as a project manager for low-income housing networks. This eventually transitioned into a consultation job that took them all around the world. He found it to be an exciting experience that gave him information about the international markets and immigration. This is why he is currently regarded as an authority for those subjects as well. While it was a thrilling time, Ted Bauman was missing something out of his life. He found that he enjoyed doing research on economics and he wanted to share that information. This is when he took a job with Banyan Hill publishing to increase his visibility and readership.
The work that Ted Bauman does is very important. He explains that to his interviewer by talking about the impact that it could have on his readers if his information were incomplete. This is one of the reasons why he is so adamant to do the research on his own. While some writers may have an assistant that locates the information for them, Bauman believes that only he is able to determine what is appropriate to exclude. This can give readers the confidence to know that the information that they are reading is not incomplete in any way. Ted Bauman has put all the work into his articles and is looking forward to continuing that work for years to come.
Making money over the long term is all about finding value where others fail to see it. In different industries, this can be accomplished by radically different means. One entrepreneur, David Zalik, proved a statement that Carl Icahn has made famous: You make the most money by doing the simplest things.
With his firm, GreenSky Credit, Zalik has turned a simple idea into an ever-expanding enterprise that is on the verge of a possible IPO, which analysts have valued at upwards of $10 billion. This is an astonishing story of growth and adaptation that has seen GreenSky go from a self-financed startup to being one of the most dominant players in the fintech industry.
Creating real value is always best
Zalik had two key insights in the creation of GreenSky. The first was that there were a tremendous number of home improvement customers who were abandoning projects due to a lack of liquidity. The second key insight was that these borrowers were high-end and they were doing projects that almost invariably created net value, meaning that the cost of the home improvement projects was less than the total that it added to the home’s value.
Zalik knew that if GreenSky could make loans to customers who were doing profitable deals that the chances of most of the loans being paid back in full and on time would be close to 100 percent. It is well known throughout the banking industry that customers who are making large amounts of money directly from the use of their loans are far less likely to slip into default. At the same time, the fact that these borrowers were among those with the highest FICO scores to begin with meant that they were already excellent candidates to loan to.
This further meant that GreenSky would have no trouble bringing onboard some of the top lenders in the industry. Today, GreenSky is making billions of dollars’ worth of loans each year, using the services of some of the top lenders in the industry, including Fifth Third Bancorp, Sun Trust and Region’s bank. Zalik has been coy, but there are currently rumors swirling of an IPO that could be worth up to $10 billion.
If there is a way for you to live a longer life, would you want to take it? What if there was a cure that could help add ten, twenty or even five years to your life expectancy? Would you want to take it? For Jason Hope, a philanthropist and entrepreneur, he is standing behind the SENS Foundation. This foundation is searching for ways to build a healthier and longer lifestyle.
The first thing you have to know is that in order to have a longer life expectancy, you have to be able to take precautions ahead of time. An example of this would be, when you go to bake a cake, do you coat the bottom of the pan to avoid the cake from burning? If you said yes, this is the same theory behind trying to find a cure as a way to build a better tomorrow. You can find Jason Hope on Twitter @JasonHope for latest updates.
The SENS Foundation is actively searching for ways that they are able to create a longer life span by finding cures that can help slow the body down with certain diseases or illnesses that affect the life span of individuals.
One of the major illnesses and diseases that affects the body and cuts the span of your life is Alzheimer’s. The presence of gene in Alzheimer is going to diminish the quality of life by cutting back on what the body needs to be healthy.

Emergency rooms are turning intofamily care centers, according to a study sponsored by NPR, the Robert Woods Foundation, and the Harvard T.H. Chan School of Public Health. Patients know they can get treatment regardless of their social status or ability to pay. Plus, thousands of people don’t have a family health care provider they see on a regular basis so they go to the emergency room for treatment. According to a 2016 study, four out of ten people who visit an emergency room need non-urgent care. There’s not much hospitals can do to alleviate this non-urgent healthcare trend, according to a recent report by an NPR affiliate in Florida. Thanks to the 1986 Emergency Medical Treatment and Active Labor Act, hospitals have to provide medical servicesto anyone who needs care even if they don’t have any type of health insurance. Plus, hospitals can’t turn people away from emergency room treatments because of their legal status or their social class.
WMFE, the NPR affiliate, put the emergency room story together in Florida. Health news reporter, Abe Aboraya interviewed emergency room physicians in order to hear what they had to say about emergency room overcrowding due to treating non-urgent care patients. One of the first doctors Aboraya interviewed was Dr. Eric Forsthoefel. Aboraya wanted to pick Forsthoefel’s mind in order to find out how overcrowding impacts proper medical care. Dr. Forsthoefel is a six-year emergency room veteran. Forsthoefel got his medical degree from Louisiana State University School of Medicine. He also did his emergency room resident training there. Dr. Forsthoefel holds a Florida and Louisiana emergency room medical license, but he works in Tallahassee now.
Crowding and care delays are part of Dr. Forsthoefel day, every day. Non-urgent care has increased to epidemic proportions, according to the NPR report. Dr. Forsthoefel and his team are knee-deep in that epidemic. According to Forsthoefel, Florida’s emergency room issues mirror other the issues emergency rooms around the country experience. Only 50 percent of the patients Forsthoefel treats get admitted for further in-patient treatments. About 30 percent of his emergency room patients are acute visits, and more than ten percent are non-urgent outpatient visits. Some doctors call emergency rooms “safety nets” for good reasons. Emergency rooms are safe havens, and they are a place where patients know they will get some kind of help even if it’s a short-term fix.
Dr. Forsthoefel said emergency room costs continue to escalate. Plus, finding the right fit in terms of a nursing and administration staff can be a challenge. Some medical staffers are not willing to put in the time and the energy to face the volume of non-urgent patients every day. Plus, managing this healthcare crisis is not easy. Emergency rooms need constant doctor and nurse attention as well as enough resources to give the emergency room staff the tools they need to provide up-to-date medical procedures. Hospitals and emergency room doctors know non-urgent emergency room care will continue to increase even though there’s not enough room or staff to treat them properly.
