Eric Pulier is considered to be one of the more fascinating entrepreneurs in the tech industry over the past decade. Pulier came up alongside of the internet as a child and he grew into his fascination with technology at the same time. Pulier is now the founder of XPrize, a vaunted foundation focused on technological innovation, as well as the founder of numerous other tech companies — including vAtomic Systems. Eric Pulier’s ascent to the top of the industry has been remarkable to watch and sufficient to say, we are digging right into it.
Eric Pulier can tell you right off of the bat that he wouldn’t be where he is today without a childhood that was dedicated to technology that he fell in love with. By the time Pulier was in fourth grade he was already spending massive amounts of time learning how to code. By the time Pulier graduated from high school he had already been running his own computer database company — and this was only in the 1980s’! Pulier moved on quickly from his home in New Jersey in order to attend Harvard where he would go on to graduate Magna Cum Laude. At Harvard Pulier would cut his teeth as the editor of the school paper, the Harvard Crimson in the following: http://www.wingsjournal.com/eric-pulier-shares-12-travel-tips-business-trip click here.
Landing in Los Angeles in the early ’90s meant that Pulier was on the ground floor of what would soon become the huge tech boom. Knowing how to operate within the industry is all about spotting trends, watching companies, and making a move right when it is most opportune. Pulier succeeded by shifting gears from the medical industry into the education sector before breaking through as a tech innovator.
Nowadays Pulier is focused on doing what he does best: staying ahead of the competition. Pulier relies on his meticulous notes, his forward thinking instincts, and his willingness to take risks in order to stay ahead of the best in the business. Pulier is busy with his work at vAtomic Systems, a micro transaction company, but he is also interested in biotechnology such as genome editing with the CIRSPR-CAS9.
Betsy DeVos co-founded The Windquest Group with her husband Dick DeVos and now holds one of the most important jobs as Secretary of the US Department of Education. DeVos was chosen to this position not only because of her high acumen and tremendous business accomplishments, but also because as a political activist she helped change many things in Michigan’s education system. Philanthropy Roundtable interviewed her back in 2013 to find out a little more about why education was so important to her endeavors.Betsy DeVos admitted as a parent with the financial means, she could send her children to any school she wished. But she wanted other families to be able to have the same privileges as her own family, so in 1992 the Education Freedom Fund was founded in partnership with the American Education Reform Council to fund grants and scholarships making private schools more affordable for lower income families. She was also the founder of the Great Lakes Education Project which became a cornerstone for charter schools in Michigan.
DeVos also mentioned other states such as Louisiana where she was part of a grassroots coalition to promote a voucher program for parents to enroll in for private schools. In 2010 Betsy and her husband Dick opened a large charter school in Grand Rapids known as the West Michigan Aviation Academy, a science-based school that admits a diverse group of students.Betsy DeVos’s personal background includes being the daughter of now deceased Michigan manufacturing tycoon Edgar Prince who was also a philanthropist and activist. The Prince family was joined with the DeVos family, the founders of multilevel marketing giant Amway Corporation when Betsy married Dick DeVos Jr. Dick and Betsy took their business acumen from Amway to start their own alternative investment firm known as The Windquest Group which has been the supporting company behind their foundation.
Beyond the schools and universities Dick and Betsy have donated to, they’ve also supported art competitions such as ArtPrize and had the University of Maryland’s Institute for Arts Management renamed for them.Leading up to Betsy’s selection to be Secretary of Education, she was actively raising funds for candidates including former President George W. Bush who also vocally supported Dick DeVos’s run for governor in 2006. Betsy was chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party twice and was often cited as the biggest attack dog on then Democrat Governor Jennifer Granholm. In the coming years Betsy DeVos also supported the Romney campaign and in 2016 began supporting Jeb Bush and later Marco Rubio. She initially had said Trump was unfit to become the Republican Party’s nominee, but upon his election to the presidency, she proclaimed it would be an honor to work with him.

There is a hidden war going on in the field of American politics and it is one that has been quietly waged for at least the past seven years. The United States government, perhaps now more than ever, has become beholden to special interests, dark money, and lobbyists. When a company can give a million dollars to a senator they can effectively purchase his vote. This is a problem. It is a problem that the team at End Citizens United is focused on remedying. End Citizens United is a political action committee that is focused on campaign finance reform at every level of the United States government: local, state and federal.
In 2010 there was a case that went before the Supreme Court. It was argued by a conservative group that laughably called themselves Citizens United. Their goal, under the guise of freedom of spending, was to loosen campaign donation restrictions in order to allow bigger spenders into the political machine. For all of the world of ridiculousness, Citizens United ended up winning in their argument. Since then politics has not been the same and millions upon millions of dollars are getting thrown around as a result. Fortunately for us, the group at End Citizens United is focused on putting an end to it — even if they can only do it one step at a time.
There have been plenty of political action groups that have gotten together in order to oppose the Citizens United decision but few of them have had the success that End Citizens United and President Tiffany Muller has had. The reason being is that Tiffany Muller and End Citizens United are benefiting from the anger and outrage that the election of Donald Trump has caused. People are angry, they are afraid, and they know that their voice is no longer getting heard. With Donald Trump filling up the White House with special interests, millionaires and billionaires the people seem to know that now is the time to start fighting back.
After just a few months in the 2017 fiscal year the team at End Citizens United has raised an impressive $4 million. The $4 million is outpacing their work in 2016 and it looks to be an omen of better things to come. The goal for 2017 is to have End Citizens United raise nearly $35 million to prepare for the 2018 Congressional Election. In 2018 a ton of Congressional seats are up for grabs and the team at End Citizens United know that this will be their chance to make a real difference at the Federal level. With $35 million raised, if they get there, this could be the best shot that End Citizens United has of making their name a reality.
One thing that people are coming to understand is that it is very important to be energy efficient. There are a lot of reasons to be this way for people who don’t know yet. As a matter of fact, the sound of the phrase itself should give it away. When people are energy efficient, they are basically saving energy while putting a certain amount of energy to greater use. Therefore, they not only save a lot of energy, but a lot of money while they are at it. One of the most important ways to be energy efficient is through the use of air conditioning.
Part of being energy efficient with air conditioning is using energy efficient products. However, it goes a lot further than that. The unit has to be matched to the size of the house. The worst thing that could happen is one could get an air conditioning unit that is working overtime. Not only will the place not cool down enough, but it will also run up the price of the energy bill. This is one of the reasons that it is important to contact an air conditioning installation company like Goettl.
Goettl is very thorough in the work it does. When a professional gets an order for a new air conditioner unit, the first thing he does is go to the house and get the measurements so that he will be able to get the right unit. This will make sure that the efficiency of the air conditioning unit will save them money. After all, there has to be a point where the air conditioning stops so that it can rest and not run up tons of money. One thing that could be said for Goettl is that they have shown that they can bring forth comfort both physically, and financially.
