Adam Milstein: An Influential Jew

Recently, Adam Milstein was named to the Jerusalem Post’s list of one of world’s “Top 50” most influential Jewish figures. Adam Milstein was included among others who have reportedly made a significant impact on the world over the past year. He is also considered to be one of a group of people to potentially effect change in the future.

Milstein was slotted in at number 39 on JP’s official list. He was praised for his work as a philanthropist and activist and for his leadership skills as the co-founder and the chairman of the IAC (Israeli-American Council). He was also honored for his work with numerous other Jewish organizations, such as the AIPAC National Council, Birthright Israel, Hasbara Fellowships, the Israel on Campus Coalition, Stand By Me and StandWithUs.

Milstein is in good company. There are other important people on the list as well. The list includes such noteworthy individuals as Jewish leaders like Malcolm Hoenlein and Natan Sharansky, Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu, philanthropists Ron Lauder, Sheldon Adelson, Haim Saban, U.S. Senator Charles Schumer, entertainers, Sarah Silverman and Gal Gadot and Supreme Court Justices Elena Kagan, Ruth Bader Ginsburg, Matthew Bronfman and Lynn Schusterman.

But where did it all begin? Perhaps it began where it begins for many successful people. It began with an education. In 1973 Milstein began studying business and economics at the Technion. He graduated in 1978 with a Bachelor of Science degree in business and economics in 1978. He studied business administration next at the University of Southern California, graduating with a Master of Business Administration degree in 1983.

He began working full-time selling commercial real estate and is now a managing partner of Hager Pacific Properties and an Israeli real estate investor. With his wife, Gila, he founded the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000. The Foundation works to fortify and safeguard Israel and all Jewish people. The Milstein Family Foundation does so by encouraging pride in the next generation of Jewish people. They also provide all pro-Israel American citizens with their expertise and knowledge to lobby for Israel and strengthen the U.S.- Israel alliance.

IAP Worldwide Builds Air Traffic Control Systems

IAP Worldwide services is doing its part to aid the United States Air Force in its efforts in Afghanistan. Recently, one of IAP Worldwide’s subsidiaries, Pana City-based Readiness Management Support(RMS) took on the difficult task of leading airport development in Kabul. Their job was to build an an air traffic control system which could provide support to Operation Enduring Freedom. They managed other subcontractors who all worked for the U.S. military. RMS’s chief task was to create a functioning visual flight rule services system for the Flight Information Region. It also needed to be capable of instrument flight rule, non-radar positioning, and positive control. IAP Worldwide Services was more than up to the task.

RMS functioned as a contractor on the AFCAP program or Air Force Contract Augmentation Program. It is an innovative program whose goal was to find new methods of creating airways, installing them, delivering on time, and maintaining the function of the communication equipment. All this was for the purpose of having proper radio coverage on the airways. RMS staff also operated as air traffic controllers and performed final flight checking. ManTech Telecommunications is one of RMS’s subcontractors and it played a role in system design, installation, and procurement at various locations across Afghanistan while Midwest ATC services trained and supplied the air traffic controllers needed for the proper operation of the airport.

Securus Eliminates One More Jail Hassle

Phone calls, emails, and commissary are just a few things that inmates are able to do and use thanks to the technology that was created by Securus. The company is one that looks to help out inmates, jails, and the staff by providing the simplest solution for these common happenings in the jail. Before Securus was on the scene, inmates could only call or write their loved ones. They now have the options that they need to be able to email them and even talk to them in different ways over the phone. The email program that was created by Securus is tightly monitored and may even be easier to keep up with than the phone call programs that are provided to the inmates.

Along with these other solutions, Securus now has a program in place specifically for inmates who wish to make a complaint about the jail, the other inmates, or even the staff. They simply have to fill out automated forms when there is a problem. The forms will be sent to the correct person based on the complaint and it will be able to be taken care of in a timelier manner than if they had simply been passed along through a correctional officer.

Get the latest news on Linkedin about Securus.

The program works not only for inmates who want an easier system but also for the employees of the prison. Correctional officers do not have to guess on where the complaint will go or who they need to pass it to. They are also able to focus more on their own job instead of handling complaints from the inmates. The jails will likely be safer because the officers will be able to focus their attention on the safety as well as the security of the inmates who are under their watchful eyes.

Managing Your Online Reputation Wisely: A Few Pieces of Advice

Online reputation management can be tricky, which is why many businesses choose to hire someone to manage their brand reputation for them. An online reputation is a lot more than just the ratings that a business has on Google Business, Yelp, Facebook, etc. It includes brand mentions online (or strategies to Brand Yourself), social media reputations, user reviews, presence on service sites or in marketplaces, and many more aspects.
You can try to see how your brand looks by Googling your company, but unless you have nothing to do but Google your company around the clock you are going to miss a lot of what is going on. There are some tools that can help with that, but they are not going to help you interpret the results. For that you need a marketing genius, and that is where having someone manage your online reputation can really come in handy.

There are a lot of basics that you need to keep in mind when it comes to keeping your brand reputation shiny online, even if you do hire an online reputation management firm. For example, they can help keep an eye on what is going on, but you need to do your best to keep things looking good by not engaging in controversy to start with either.

To start with you need to remember that nothing is ever private. Even if you think that something is marked private online when you post it on social media that doesn’t mean it won’t trickle out. One simple screenshot by a wayward employee and your privacy is violated as is your brand. Nothing ever goes away so if there is anything you think you would ever second guess, just don’t say it.

Along the same note, you have to make sure not to argue, even if you are rightly incensed. If someone leaves you a bad review simply respond that you appreciate their view and hope to make their experience better. Engaging and debating with a customer will only lead to even more hate most of the time and eventually a bad reputation. Debating poetics or any other issue on social media is also a black hole that could ruin your reputation, so keep things basic online and everyone wins.
