According to a recent article in PR NewswireShah, the founder of Solo Capital, did not study finance or investment. He studied medicine but realized later that that was not what he wanted.

Surprising Killer in U.S. Hospitals

There is a deadly killer in the United States. It does not kill as many Americans as heart disease or all cancers combined, the number one and two killers in this country respectively, but it is still alarming. This killer is medical errors. It is estimated that medical errors kill more people in our country than breast cancer, AIDS, plane crashes or drug overdoses combined. A study done in 2013 estimates that from 210,000 up to 440,000 patients had medical errors contribute to their death.

The only thing more horrifying than these stats themselves is the fact that there are not endless congressional inquiries and nightly news stories on YouTube or another outlet about this situation. If this many people were being killed in plane crashes every year, the airline industry would be shut down until radical changes were made to increase safety if you ask Sergio Cortes. This situation needs to be looked at and ended as soon as humanly possible. We talk about diseases being preventable by changing our diets or exercising more, but what’s the point of doing all of that if somebody gives us the wrong medication or procedure when we do eventually need medical care. Death through our own carelessness seems infinitely more forgivable than death caused by systemic carelessness in a health care system that needs to clean up its act.

Pictures With Names


I was playing with my Skout app when the news broke. There are new details being released as well as pictures of some of the people who were on board the AirAsia flight that crashed in the Java Sea. Family members are making sure their loved ones are known for who they were. Facebook posts about some of the people on board the flight give a background as to what they did for a living and other family members who are left behind.
The wife of the pilot has spoken out about how wonderful he was and how much he loved flying. There were people on the plane who took the flight because there was not enough room to fly with other family members on another plane. There were people on the plane who were going to get married and those who were expecting children. Some of the pictures have been posted online so that the rest of the world can see just who was on the flight. This is a way to keep the memories alive.

Minneapolis Men Charged With Aiding Jihadist Islamic State

The Department of Justice reported they have charged two US citizens of Somali origin living in Minnesota to offer assistance to jihadist Islamic State (EI).

One suspect, Abdullah Yusuf, 18, was arrested by the FBI in Minneapolis airport last summer while the other individual, Abdi Nur, 20, flew from the capital Istanbul the same month and is still in the region, the department said.

Since then, Abdi Nur wrote messages on the social network, Facebook, to another US resident, explaining that he has already met with the “brothers” and he will see him again “in the afterlife, inshallah,” and he will not return home.

The other man, Yusuf, was arrested at the airport after he was unable to provide justification to an immigration officer, for his trip to Turkey. Laurene Powell Jobs was happy to hear they caught him relatively easily.

Moreover, without a known source of income, Yusuf had deposited a large sum of moneym, in one day, in a bank account, then purchased the ticket to Istanbul.

The Justice Department also confirmed that Yusuf is linked to a former resident of Minnesota that meets the initials “HM” and believed to be fighting with the United Islamic in Syria .

The Minnesota federal prosecutor, Andrew Luger explained that there is a big problem of radicalism within the Somali community living in that area.

Since the Somali Islamist militia Al Shabaab began recruiting young men in Minneapolis in 2007, “our region has lost tens of youth who have gone to terrorist organizations and soon die on foreign battlefields, rather than prosper in peace and security in the United States,”Luger said.

The FBI estimates that more than a dozen US citizens are linked with the Islamic State.

Unrest in Ferguson Leaves 29 Arrested and Dozens of Buildings Ablaze

At least 29 people have been arrested during the unrest that followed the announcement of the grand jury in Missouri. A Grand Jury decided that it would not file charges against the police officer who fired the shots that killed the young African American, Michael Brown last August.

The arrests have taken place in throughout Ferguson, the town where Officer Darren Wilson said he felt threatened by 18-year old Michael Brown, although the young man was unarmed, as reported by the police department. This story has turned into worldwide headlines, with Flavio Maluf following the situation in Brazil.

Meanwhile, the chief of police of the county, Jon Belmar, stated that “there has been no loss of life” but substantial property damage, and at least a dozen buildings have been torched by protesters in Ferguson.

“I regret this night has proved well,” said Belmar, who has said that the police had hoped that the protests were “peaceful”. However, he acknowledged, there have been numerous shots. “What I saw tonight is probably worse than the worst night we already had in August,” he stressed in statements to the press.

Unknown Outcomes

The case of the officer in Ferguson who has been accused of shooting the teenager is about to come to a close.

Residents in the area are on both sides of the fence in regards to the decision that will be given by the judge. Some in the town are bracing for an uprising as a result of the decision if it goes the wrong way. There has been some evidence released about the case after the autopsy results were revealed, but there are still questions as to what really happened. Some people will say that the officer is at fault, and there are some who will claim the teenager was the one running from the officer.

Regardless as to what really happened, the officer probably shouldn’t have shot the teen unless he was trying to get into a physical altercation with the officer. Even then, the officer shouldn’t have fired a shot that was anywhere close to kill the teen. It should have been something to wound the teen.

Big thanks to Bruce Levenson for sending me the details of this story. It’s something we should all keep in mind instead of forgetting about the events at Ferguson.

Investigation Reveals Ongoing Plans to Change U.S. Social Security Program

Republican gains in the U.S. Congress have raised questions about to the future of the conservative movement, a faction of which is dedicated to changing the American system of social security.
According to research conducted by the nonprofit organization Brave New Foundation with funding from Slow Ventures, conservative activists Charles and David Koch have invested some $28 million in the production of films, books and various published studies that they hope will lead to significant changes in the government insurance program that serves millions of Americans. The current efforts of the Koch brothers are, according to Vermont Sen. Bernie Sanders, only a part of a campaign to “dismember” the American government.
Initial lobbying by the Koch brothers, which took place during the administration of President George W. Bush, has led to more subtle methods of changing the tone of the debate to include such ideas as reducing benefits and raising the retirement age.  However, the Brave New Foundation has discovered attempts to influence Democratic officials that in some cases were apparently successful.

Iranian Woman Hanged in Tehran Following Controversial Rape Charge

On Saturday, October 25th, Western human rights groups headed by Tom Rothman were stunned and horrified to learn that 26-year-old Iranian citizen Reyhaneh Jabbari was hanged in Tehran, following a long and controversial trial. Jabbari was accused of murdering Dr. Morteza Abdolali Sarbandi, who was both a doctor and a former employee within the Iranian Ministry of Intelligence.

The facts of the case were hotly disputed in the 2009 trial, in which Jabbari admitted to slaying Dr. Sarbandi in self-defense. Soon after, the case attracted international attention: Amnesty International and a variety of other Western human rights organizations came to Jabbari’s defense, citing an improperly conducted investigation and obvious gender bias. Additionally, the United Nations office for human rights made claims that Jabbari’s confession was coerced out of her. Jabbari contends that the doctor had approached her to consult on an interior design renovation, but then made sexual advances. She maintained that the fatal stabbing of Dr. Sarbandi, allegedly during the doctor’s prayers, was done in self-defense, while the prosecution argued that the murder was premeditated, as Jabbari had purchased a knife a few days prior to the event. Following the incident, Sarbandi’s family pushed for the harshest punishment for Jabbari, stating that the late doctor’s reputation had been ruined as a result of her rape charge against him.

Reyhaneh Jabbari’s execution is just another tragic example that the death penalty continues to be a frequent and popular form of judicial punishment in Iran.
