Laurenne Powell Jobs Advocates for Socially Responsible Entrepreneurs

March 10, 2015 - Author: steph

At a talk she gave at Stanford University, Laurene Powell recently discussed the benefits of getting involved in start-ups that focus on doing social good, rather than on making profit as the core motivation. While she said that this often comes at a price to one’s income, this opportunity cost is superseded by the sense of satisfaction one gets from helping others.

Asked about the possibility of financial support, Powell recommended that wages be supplemented by private venture funds that are interested in ramping up their social responsibility by setting aside a small portion of their income for this purpose. Investors, in general, are increasingly becoming more interested in values-related investing, meaning that their criteria for social responsibility is becoming more stringent. This development is expected to have a positive impact on corporate behavior over the long term.

Powell also mentioned her post-graduate experience working at Goldman Sachs, which was somewhat difficult for a woman at the time given that it was largely a male dominated environment. Gender equality was another topic, addressed as a particularly big challenge in the tech world where women are typically paid less and have more difficulty getting hired. For Powell Jobs, this was less of a problem given her strong education and a family with three brothers. Ultimately, the allocation of capital for the absolving of such social problems will have a positive impact on the world.

North American Spine Brings Pain Relief to Thousands

January 19, 2015 - Author: steph

Dallas-based spinal clinic, North American Spine, is celebrating six years of operation. Specializing in the AccuraScope procedure, North American Spine has helped over 6,000 patients with the procedure, saving them, on average, over $20,000 apiece on follow-up medical procedures and pain management expenses.

North American Spine’s team of board-certified physicians work with partner clinics to deliver a minimally invasive spinal correction procedure. In the Accurascope procedure, a small incision is made at the base of the spine, and a small laparoscopic instrument is threaded into the incision with a small camera and a surgical instrument, such as a laser. The physician navigates up the spine and makes incisions to relieve pressure on the spinal column, to clear obstructions and relieve pain.

AccuraScope treatments are only intended for people with modest spinal pain issues; severely damaged spinal injuries and herniated discs are outside of the treatment range it can offer, but it has a better than 80% success rate in treating level 1 and level 2 chronic back pain conditions.

North American Spine is the exclusive developer and source for AccuraScope spinal treatments, and works with several clinics around the country. Even with expanding national coverage, the bulk of the procedures are handled in their Dallas Metroplex home office.

A large number of patients report immediate spinal pain relief, some even walking out of the clinic without the assistance of a cane for the first time in years. Over the six years North American Spine has been in business, they’ve garnered excellent reviews and endorsements from customers, including country-western performer Larry Gatlin. Gatlin turned to North American Spine to relieve 47 years of chronic leg pain.

“I am a new man. The little bit of soreness I have now is a lot different than a whole lot of pain,” Gatlin said. “I’m a happy camper. It’s a miracle in my life and I am grateful for it.”

North American Spine’s team are experts in spine surgery and interventional pain management, with training in Orthopedic Spine Surgery, Neurosurgery and patient wellness. The outpatient procedure is fast and efficient, and is often done in 30 to 45 minutes.

Six years of medical procedures are a proven track record for helping thousands of patients regain their lives, their mobility and a pain-free existence, gaining the flexibility and mobility that chronic back pain have taken from them. If you suffer from back pain, talk to a physician at North American Spine about AccuraScope.
