A Little Drama in Big Pharma: Remalda vs Laidlaw

Apparently, it takes a court order for enforce morality when the world of “big pharma” collides with the world of “shady finance”. Relmada Therapeutics has added an amendment to a previous Lawsuit against Laidlaw and its Principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern. Relmada Therapeutics is seeking damages and compensation as a result of Laidlaw’s efforts to spread “false information” in regards to Relmada. There is so much more to this.

The latest amendment to the lawsuit adds another installment in the accusations. Relmada Therapeutics claims Laidlaw disclosed sensitive and confidential financial information. How to handle classified and sensitive information has been a “hot-topic” in the USA lately. I am unsure if Hillary Clinton is to blame for this sensitive leak. In all seriousness, when did we lose our sense of care when guarding secrets in general?

There are two people you should trust in the this world: those that cook your food and those that handle your finances. Laidlaw has continually breached the trust of their clients over the years. It is beyond me that, it takes a team of lawyers and judges to re-teach the lessons of morality we learned in grammar school. My five year old can discern right from wrong better that Matthew Eitner and James Ahern. This is evident from the precedence that has been set since their inception as the principals of Laidlaw. Laidlaw is “laying” on a mattress made of lawsuits.

When the forces of evil decided to wipe each other out, I do nothing but watch in most cases. In this case, I truly believe Relmada Therapeutics is in the right and something needs to be done about Laidlaw. Something needs to be done about that type of “toxic leadership” poisoning some of our greatest business organizations.

ClassDojo empowers teachers with useful features

ClassDojo, a San Francisco-based startup, has been quickly spreading to classrooms across the country. This innovative tool is helping teachers manage their classrooms through positively encouraging good student mindsets and reducing or eliminating teacher workload for tasks involving communicating with parents. Although there are other products aimed at making K-8 teachers’ lives easier, ClassDojo is unique in its combination of fun, positive reinforcement with the serious tools teachers need to keep their classes running smoothly and efficiently.

An invention born of necessity

When ClassDojo’s founders, Sam Choudhary and Liam Don started out they had only one preconceived idea: They wanted to create something that would make education easier. With no idea of exactly how they would do this, they set out cold-calling thousands of teachers and talking in person to hundreds more in order to get a feel for what problems most plagued K-8 educators. It didn’t take long for an answer to take shape.

The teachers interviewed almost unanimously pointed to behavior problems that they needed to spend valuable class time dealing with as the main obstacle to efficiently running a classroom. Don and Choudhary then set out to discover all they could about how to positively encourage students to adopt a pro-learning mindset. Eventually they came to the theories of various psychologists including James Heckman, Angela Duckworth and Carol Dweck which emphasized the power of positive reinforcement to create a fertile learning environment. What resulted is an app which is fundamentally different from anything else on the market.

ClassDojo becomes the first social network for parents, teachers and kids

What took form is an app that ultimately came to resemble a social network but that also had many well-designed education-oriented features. ClassDojo allows kids to communicate with each other while maintaining a high level of administrative control for the teacher. But it also includes a much lauded positive feedback system, allowing kids to get a healthy dose of approval and recognition each time they achieve something in class. In this sense, @ClassDojo borrows aspects from modern gaming that encourage user longevity. In effect, ClassDojo gets kids hooked on learning, one addiction that can hardly be called a vice.

The app also updates parents with their child’s progress in real time. Parents no longer have to wait for the semi-annual parent-teacher conference to find out their child hasn’t mastered a lesson.

ClassDojo is getting rave reviews from teachers across the country and has spread like wildfire throughout U.S. schools. It solves teachers’ most pressing problems and gets kids excited about learning. Watch for its continued expansion into the future.

Markus Rothkranz: The First Step to Healing

Human nature often strives to cheat nature. However, nature can never be cheated. You must honor the laws that have been set in place. We must realize that most of our problems are the result of the decisions that we have made the actions that we have taken. We are only as good as are building blocks.

If you are you constantly wondering:

What to take for your diabetes?
How to prevent heart disease?
Is it possible to get rid of diabetes?
What do you take for IBS?
Crohn’s disease?
Celiac disease?

The answer is always the same. You must stop doing what causes the problem to in the first place. This is one of the most important things that we must understand to begin the healing in our lives. The secret that everyone has heard, but do not really want to follow.

This was one of Markus Rothkranz’s primary goal in Heal Yourself 101. There are no magic potions to healing yourself. There is nothing that you do to resolve your health problem until you start by removing what is causing the problem. For example, a fire can not be extinguished with water if someone continues to pour gasoline on the fire. This same scenario applies to someone who continues to eat pasta, drink cow’s milk and sugary products while trying to rid themselves of a health problem. The body must be completely cleansed of all toxins to heal.

All these conditions. All these diseases. These are just the symptoms. That’s all it is. There is no way for you to catch diabetes from someone. Or heart disease. It is the result of what you have chosen to put into your life and your body and your mind. In order to get rid yourself of these symptoms, you must stop doing what is causing it.

As many have said the definition of insanity is taking the same action, but expecting different results.

Stop doing what caused the problem.
Clean up the mess with cleansing.
Then start putting good things back into your body.
