American Israelis teach American Jews many things. Adam milstein says they are more connected to the Israeli state and are shown the Israeli culture. They are also taught the Hebrew language. Adam Milstein thinks the American Israelis can help grow the American Jews into a better community. Many Israelis came here 1948 and they stayed under the radar. Israel had completely disowned them. Jews did not want anything to do with them until they paid a fee. Now they are Jews. American Israelis are proud to be American but they are also able to help their Nation here.
Adam Milstein says they stand proud and fight back against whoever is anti-Semitism. They are working on passing the anti-BDS legislation and expose anti-Israelism in the UN. They have helped bring people together to pass the Taylor Force Act. Adam Milstein says that Israel is not perfect but it is where they come from. They will be there to help and support their country, even from the US. Everybody knows where they are coming from and they are proud of who they are. They are family.
Israel is a wedge that has many disagreements but the American Israelis still accept and support the state of Israel. They are home of pro-Israel community nationwide. The decisions in Israel should be made by their citizens.
They are not here to take over America but to be apart of it. Israelis are just trying to bring their culture to the Jew community. They are here to learn what they can and to find ways to do activities with the Jew community.
They are here to build a stronger jewish community. Staying spiritual is an asset for them. They do programs where a lot of the community nation wide come together to celebrate their holidays. They get more respect now in Israel.
Kerrisdale Capital Chief Investment Officer & Founder Sahm Adrangi foresees potential troubles for the global firm, Eastman Kodak (NYSE: KODK). Is it struggling to handle digital technology? What specific concerns were raised in his assessment?
Eastman Kodak Problems
On February 7, 2018 Kerrisdale Capital Chief Investment Officer & Founder Sahm Adrangi explained why he was shorting Eastman Kodak on CNBC. Kodak is a commercial printing, imaging, camera and film company, whose stock has risen 187% after announcing its blockchain cryptocurrency partnership. Learn more about Sahm Adrangi at Businessinsider.com.
Mr. Sahm Adrangi does not think that the announcement changes the poor performance and unsustainable capital structure of Eastman Kodak. The announcement seemed to be aimed at jumping on the ICO bandwagon – it is full of sound and fury, but devoid of substance.
Needless to say, since the stock’s run up, a short position could be an attempt to take profits. ICOs are actually very competitive and Eastman Kodak might be competing with more agile, blockchain technologies that have more free capital. Mr. Adrangi does not think that Eastman Kodak’s brand name is enough to stem the tide.

Trailblazing CEO Susan McGalla says the lack of women in the boardroom has very little to do with lack of effort or opportunities. It is much more about lack of incentives and other women for the purpose of support.
According to McGalla, men still hold the majority of positions. And until attitudes change, and men understand the importance of women in the workplace, it will remain this way.
According to studies, companies with gender-diversity are 15% more successful. “The numbers cannot be denied,” said McGalla.
The Pittsburgh native has held a number of high-level positions in her young age. She has headed a number of Fortune 500 companies like Wet Seal and American Eagle Outfitters. Today she runs her own company, P3 Executive Consulting and she is also the marketing director for the Pittsburgh Steelers organization.
McGalla was raised to be fearless. With a football coach father and two brothers, she was never given any exceptions and learned from a very young age that she would not be given any slack because of her gender. It is a good lesson that she carried on in life.
McGalla recalls when she first entered the work force, she saw very few women in the board room. “Although it was obviously still a man’s world, I wasn’t going to let that intimidate me or hold me back.” She didn’t.
She worked very hard and proved that she was just as good as her male peers. She was rewarded with a number of lucrative positions that further showcased her exceptional talents.
While things are getting better for women, McGalla feels the pace could quicken up a bit. She says companies like Hewlitt Packard, Yahoo and Pepsi Cola having women at the helm proves that women can do an excellent job if given the chance.
