Omar Yunes was recently recognized as Best Franchisee of the World in 2015’s version of the BFW event. The competition was held in Florence, Italy and included members from over 30 different countries. The competition is international, meaning that anyone from any origin is able to compete and possibly win. The competition takes place every single year and this past competition just so happened to include two finalist from the very same country, Mexico.
The event is ment to showcase the worlds best busniess leaders and highlight specific characteristics that these people contain. For example, judges are looking for Franchisees who can contribute savings plans, encourage and motivate employees to go above and beyond their job titles, someone who can pour their own knowledge into the franchise, and someone who can take control and gain profit. Omar Yunes served as a prime example.
Omar Yunes is currently Franchisee of Sushi Itto. Sushi Itto is a very successful Japanese style restaurant located in and throughout Mexico. Omar Yunes first stepped up as Franchisee when he was just 21 years old. Since then, he has expanded the franchise to include 13 more units and roughly 400 new employees. Some of the locations of the restaurant include Vera Cruz, Puebla, and Mexico City. It’s safe to say that Yunes hasn’t seen much of anything that hasn’t involved a great amount of success. When he received his award for Best Franchisee, the judges spoke about the relationship Omar Yunes created with Sushi Itto. They believe he revolutionized the traditional relationship normally held between a franchise and a Franchisee and that the results were significantly impactful. A second notable contribution Omar Yunes made to Sushi Itto was the implementation of new control boards. These boards help him to better manage and oversee the franchise as a whole so he can really focus on and downsize problem areas. Omar Yunes was happy to finally win this award and even more proud to be named one of the first Mexicans to do so.

Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey had set out to create an alternative database solution in the otherwise bare marketplace. In 2008, NimbusDB was invented to change the way databases are used in a corporate setting. Since the name change in 2011 to NuoDB, they had caught the interest of several venture capital firms. In 2012 alone, they had raised $17 million to start up the company. And to this day, over $59 million had been raised from actively involved investors.
NuoDB is well known for their ability to speed up cloud-based applications. Companies have been transitioning due to the sluggish behavior of other leading SQL platforms on distributed computing data centers. Kodiak, Alfa Systems, and UAE Exchange are some of their proudest customers that have switched over to the latest trend. With this new piece of technology, their web applications will never have any downtime due to the distributed nature of the database.
NuoDB had been specifically designed to increase SQL database performance on server clusters. Server clusters are powerful, yet need specific guidance in order to perform complicated computing tasks. NuoDB has commands that utilize the usage of database requests on cluster hardware servers. This nature of mastering distributed computing also makes it useful for cloud-based programming.

Newly appointed CEO/President of Memorial University Medical Center Maggie Gill is diving into her job full-throttle. On Wednesday night, the 16-member board of directors removed the interim from her title and made her the permanent CEO. She succeeds embattled Philip Schaengold, who was removed from the position just before her appointment.
“Maggie has shown incredible leadership during a very trying time and should be rewarded for her good work,” said board member J.C. Lewis III. The board is working on finalizing Gill’s contract.
Gill says she is 150% committed to this job and is focused on providing the best possible care for all patients. “It has always been my goal to run this hospital in a manner that will make patients and staff proud,” said Gill.
While under Schaengold’s leadership, Memorial went through several rough patches. Relationships deteriorated, and management problems made matters even worse. Gill promises to bring back stability while building relationships. “There were a lot of frustrated people working at the hospital,” said Lewis. “Things had gotten so bad that we were forced to make a change.”
In an interview with the Morning News, Gill stressed the importance of communication. She also stated that the hospital will get back to its roots of community-based values.
Holding true to her word, Maggie Gill has already begun a shake up of executive staff. The billing and collections process will be completely revamped for efficiency. Gill says there a number of pressing issues that will be tackled. Repairing the physician-team member relationship is a must.
How often do you get a downright honest individual, especially in the public sector? In the world we are living in, the answer is never. Well, that could be a bit of an exaggeration on my part, but the truth is, there are fewer honest and morally upright people than before.
However, all is not lost, as there are a few individuals who are setting the pace and trying to bring back sanity in our world. Such individuals stick to their ideals and protect not only the rule of law but humanity as well. These sober individuals go against the current and exhibit extraordinary qualities. Besides building a name for themselves, they make us feel human again.
It would be quite unfair to hold such a discussion without mentioning Helane Morrison. In my opinion, Morrison is an exemplary individual who has maintained ethical integrity in her entire lifetime. Not only has she kept herself straight, but also, anyone around her has to comply with her moral standards. Helane’s unique character is attributed to the fact that she has worked in the finance sector without allowing her character be compromised.
Helane Morrison has restored some level of confidence in the Wall Street.
Having lost its credibility and popularity in the 2007-2008 crash, investors lost faith in the financial sector. However, efforts from individuals like Morrison have seen some level of confidence restored in Wall Street.
Just like in the wild, the financial market is full of cunning wolves lying in wait on unsuspecting sheep, in this case greenhorn investors. The average investor is a vulnerable creature who needs guidance and protection to make their investments worth. Unfortunately, the financial market is full of corruption and swindles as is characteristic of anywhere big money is involved.
With all these in mind, honest individuals like Morrison have taken it upon themselves to protect people’s investments. Her legal experience with matters dealing in finance has put her in a better position to deal with the issues that arise. Her diligence and incorruptible character have seen her work with the government at the San Francisco office of US Securities and Exchange, where she was mandated with the duty of protecting individuals and corporations against fraud. During Helane Morrison’s service there, she ensured full disclosure of information and fairness in transactions. This is one of the highlights of her career, whereby Morrison led numerous fraud cases against top executives who were regarded as untouchables.
In line with her personal beliefs, Morrison took up a position at Hall Capital, San Francisco’s most successful investment advisory firm. It was quite expected as it turned out that the pioneering spirit of the organization is what led her there as opposed to the healthy returns.
Adam Sender is not just a financial advisor, but an accomplished art collector who has accumulated some of the most leading contemporary art. He succeeded by keeping his eye on future and up-coming artists over the years. His goal was to collect the best creative at the most reasonable prices – ideally before a particular artist grew in fame. Sender has consistently acquired a collection that is coherent and engaging from piece to piece rather than individual groupings. He started decades ago and as he is now in his forties, his collection goes beyond just the idea of classics. His collection of art is truly personal and carefully selected. Some of the art has been developed by established artists while others are more young up-and-coming creatives such as Adam McEwen, Rashid Johnson and Lucien Smith.
He selects art that is intellectually stimulating and visually appealing, which isn’t easy when there are so many great artists out there. Sender, therefore, has a unique ability to really focus in on an artist or type of creative that gives his collection the streamlined and rich personality he’s cultivated. He enjoys sharing his collection with the world showing his art in museums – something he originally never thought would happen when he started out buying contemporary pieces. His love and passion for the art helped his showcase grow organically.
As of 2014, he had about 800 works by around 139 artists – encapsulating his drive for variety. Although he recently decided to sell half of his work, he still has his passion. He originally started collecting as an investment. Investing in a hedge-fund may be where you make 20%, but contemporary art lifted global art sales to approximately $65.3 billion. He did not expect to have the passion and at times obsession, as he puts it, he’d have for collecting. Sender just was trying to buy the very best work that was decently priced.

Independent retailers who work on behalf of QNet are able to choose whichever type and brand of product they think will sell the best, and they are able to sell it virtually however they want to. If an independent representative chooses to call all the people in their phone to find out if someone wants to buy one of their products, they can; or, one could post flyers around town on light poles; or, one could choose to market and advertise their products on social media apps and websites for free.
The freedom the QNet allows their independent retailers is one of the biggest reasons explaining QNet’s success. QNet operates in excess of one hundred countries around the world, and has offices in more than ten countries.
QNet has recently announced the the company plans to construct and open a new production center in India, which is expected to produce various consumer goods and electronics.
