Diplomat Daniel Taub is a TV Series Writer too

Daniel Taub, the renowned Israeli diplomat, is known for his accurate judgment on various international affairs and an expert in foreign policies. However, many people are unaware that he is TV series writer as well. In 2003, he came up with the idea of an Israeli soap opera “Rebbe’s Court” and wrote its plotline as well as the entire scripts.

While he was collaborating with a think-tank, he got the idea of coming up with fresh concepts for Jewish TV channels.

But, Taub said that he was never planned to write it, but when he proposed the plan for a soap opera that was set on a court of the Hasidic rebbe, the members of think-tank encouraged him to come up with a sample episode.

Interestingly, Daniel Taub wrote the series without having any prior connection to soap operas at all; he did not even watch a full episode of any soap opera until that day. But, he referenced the internet and bought books that teach script writing and started with the TV series of 26 episodes.

The toughest challenge during those days was managing his time between home and busy work. With the soap opera, Taub wanted to break the stereotype characters and made it more secular and apt to the traditional Jewish audience. Read more: Daniel Taub | Crunchbase and Daniel Taub | Ideamench

The secular characters of the series were at the positive light of the program to make them connected with the viewers. However, Daniel Taub accepted that he faced greater dilemmas in splitting the plot between secular and religious Jews.

Initially, he kept his involvement in the program secret at the ministry. Once people started hooked to the plot, it garnered appreciation for him from the ministry as well as from the legal community. Interestingly, the biggest fans of the series were the fans of Taub’s discussions and standings on international affairs.

Conor Lamb Gets Support From The People, Endorsement From End Citizens United

The 18th Congressional District is abuzz with news about the special election in May, and the spotlight is on the Republican candidate, Rick Saccone. Dominating the airwaves with paid ads by outside groups, Saccone is a talking point for the entire district. One of Saccone’s major sponsors, and the group that launched the ads, the 45Committee is a political action committee focused on backing Republican candidates and the agenda of President Trump. With a reported half-million dollars put into an ad campaign featuring a negative spot on Conor Lamb. The spot cites Lamb’s “liberal” agenda and their opposition to the recent Republican tax-cut bill.

Conor Lamb; Democratic Candidate

Conor Lamb, the Democratic candidate in the upcoming special election, hopes to use Saccone’s media crusade to his own advantage, with a focus on the issues of unions and working Americans. End Citizens United has provided their backing to Lamb, with a focus on opposing the influence of corporate money in the elections. Lamb’s target is the currently empty House seat up for grabs in the upcoming special election. The seat having been occupied by the Republican Tim Murphy until his October resignation.

As part of his campaign, Lamb has made a pledge to never accept corporate money, only taking small donations from individuals or unions. This means that, with the amount of corporate support that the Republican candidate has garnered, this will be an uphill battle for Lamb. End Citizens United has made it their focus to help Lamb win the election, giving him their full backing. With grassroots policies and a focus on the people rather than on parties or the president, Lamb has become an enticing opportunity, not only for Pennsylvania Democrats but also for Republicans worried about Saccone’s anti-union stances.

End Citizens United Steps In To Aid Lamb

A political action committee focused on curtailing corporate influence in elections, End Citizens United was named after a controversial decision by the supreme court to lift the political spending limits of corporations and other groups. Firm opposers to the idea of corporate spending on elections, the committee strives to vote for grassroots Democratic candidates with a focus on giving political power back to the people. Lamb is one such candidate.

The primary goal of End Citizens United is to pass a constitutional amendment to roll back the supreme court decision to lift political contribution limits for corporations. The decision originally being made in 2010 caused a massive influx of corporate money in politics, and shifted the balance of power from the people to the wealthy elite, as well as allowing for the creation of super PACs. End Citizens United attempts to curtail political spending by funneling small single-person contributions to candidates supporting their stance and more

Adam Milstein Shares His Typical Day With Ideamensch

Adam Milstein is a Jewish American entrepreneur and popular activist when it comes to speaking on unity between Jews abroad and the nation of Israel. His primary job is fundraising and making deals for major residential and commercial property purchases by Hager Pacific Properties. But he also is highly involved in different college campus activities promoting Jewish culture and Israeli pride, and he often attends and speaks at conferences involving both Jewish community leaders and political leaders. Adam Milstein is quite busy on a day-to-day, but Ideamensch had a chance to catch up with him not long ago.

One of their first questions to Milstein was how he got into real estate investing and got started with Hager Pacific Properties. He mentioned that he had been pursuing his MBA in grad school and none of the opportunities at the time seemed worth his time, so he decided to get into real estate brokering himself and learn on the fly. His average day he says is not really one that can be planned out because the industry has a lot of unknown variables in it, but having his philanthropy in the schedule does add some structure. One thing he says makes him successful is doing the best he can in any situation and not relying on goals and more

Adam Milstein was born in Haifa, Israel and did some traveling around the nation as a young boy due to his father’s job. Like his father before him and every other young man in his day, Milstein also served in the Israeli Defense Forces and did a tour during the 1973 Yom Kippur War. After his military service was over, he got his formal education at the Technion, and for a few years worked with his father in construction. He also married Gila Elgrably and with her has had 3 daughters who all have children of their own.

Adam Milstein cofounded Hager Pacific Properties in the early 1990s, but as he transitioned from his life in Israel to life in America he started seeing the problems Israelis who had left Israel faced there. In an effort to build better relationships between them and the existing Jewish community, and to change how they were perceived in Israel, he started the Israeli-American Council and the Milstein Family Foundation. The foundations have partnered with many other activist groups to build bridges and to connect Jews with their identity in Israel.

Lime Crime’s Formula For Chinese Success

China is one of the largest nations on earth, and China is well-tuned when it comes to fashion. The cosmetic industry brings in billions of dollars on an annual basis and Lime Crime makes up a percentage of this exclusive field. The company has only been around for about nine years, but it has helped to revolutionize the industry thanks to its eclectic style. Of course, with any successful company, expansion is a viable solution for continued growth. When it comes to cosmetics, China has strict shipping policies. If Lime Crime is thinking of shipping its products to China, then it will have to contend with:

  • Transportation Logistics
  • Taxes
  • Customer Inquiries
  • Manage Duties
  • Handling International Returns

One of the best solutions for avoiding this business-related chaos is by launching the company on Chinese soil. With the help of Los Angeles-based Revolve, Lime Crime can get its products to the masses. Revolve is an e-commerce platform that specializes in fashion, but it also has similar goals as LimeCrime. This duo works hand-to-hand because of their special relations. Creating a (seed audience) was a great marketing tool because it encourages the customers to visit Revolve’s e-commerce platform. It’s a win-win situation for both companies as each company will receive exposure. Since China is heavily-influenced by counterfeits, consumers will be ensured for the purchase of legitimate products.

Lime Crime’s marketing focused on people who are truly passionate about the brand, and its products instead of first-tier consumers. Global general manager Kim Walls stated that “this is very critical to have someone who can speak on behalf of the company.” All in all, Lime Crime’s implementation of Revolve looks to be a winning solution, but only time will tell.

Explanation Of The Rio De Janeiro’s PPP Model

Establishing 40,000 new pre-schools and 20,000 new kindergartens by 2020 are among the goals of Rio de Janeiro in the management of Marcelo Crivella, the current mayor. The model focuses on the use of Public-Private Partnership in the non-pedagogical, construction and maintenance of education services. Public-Private Partnership (PPP) is a collaborative contract between public and private sectors to perform specified roles. Moreover, Public-Private Partnership enables the government to access and utilize the limited resources. It is an alternative mechanism of serving the public using the scarce resources.

Infrastructure Project specialist, Felipe Montoro Jens, stated that the Public-Private Partnership is at the feasibility studies stage. She further illustrated that the Rio’s public contacting modality was created on December 30, 2004, by Law 11,079 and establishes PPPs biding and contracting guidelines. The PPP model applied in the city of Rio de Janeiro resembles the first PPP used by Brazilian schools and launched in July 2012, in Belo Horizonte. It is familiar to those who participated in the government program of Marcelo Crivella who has been committed to the education sector from youth. Therefore, Brazil’s Ministry of Education utilizes Belo Horizonte’s model that demands funds transfer from the lunch. Furthermore, the City Hall is responsible for the pedagogical section and school lunch while the private partner is responsible for maintenance and construction of new Infant Education units.

It is notable that the World Bank Group member, International Finance Corporation, hired a firm that shall offer the project model’s consulting services for R$2.3 million. International Finance Corporation (IFC) is the world’s largest private-partner development institution. Furthermore, IFC utilizes its expertise, innovative thinking, financial resources and global experience to assist its partners to overcome their operational, political and financial challenges. IFC also provides consulting services to evaluate the effectiveness and feasibility of the Rio de Janeiro’s Public-Private Partnership.
