With Great Colors, Fabletics is Running Fast

Get a membership, send $10, and pick out Kate Hudson’s favorite exercise outfit. It’s yours to wear to the gym or wherever, as a special “thank you for joining” this $250 million dollar business called Fabletics, which is now leading the sales of activewear in the country. Kate Hudson is offering great style in workout wear, including patterned leggings and specially designed tops, and they are created of materials that breath, stretch, and work out with you. Not only are Hudson’s unique styles sweeping the market, but her company’s marketing style is proving a match for Amazon.com, a household name at the online market of all things!

 

How does the successful membership work? Seeking to provide a great product, offer personalized service with good value, and provide easy access to the whole experience, Fabletic carefully designed its membership. This is proving very attractive to the activewearer, and the business has grown 35% in each of the last three years. You may choose to pay 49.95 for the month and shop when you like, or if you do not wish to shop that month, you notify them by the 5th and no charge will be given. If you do not notify, your credit card is charged, but this can be used as payment or credit. Membership may be canceled at any time by a simple phone call to Member Services.

 

Personalized service for the membership includes surveys which help determine your likes, dislikes, and style. For example, the first survey asks: “What is your favorite way to sweat? Gym , cycle, run, or yoga, or do you mix it up?” Other questions ask, “Where do you like to workout? What colors get you goovin? Is your body type petite, lean, athletic, or curvy?” The site will go on to get your exact measurements, password info, and your email address. At this point they will give you personalized selections in all price ranges, with total outfits and separates.

 

Comments on the total process were very positive. The enthusiasm is due in part to the marketing strategy used by Fabletics, and it seems to be working. Customers like being encouraged a little; they like good brand names and quality products; they like convenience and little perks that signify personalized service, and they like the affordable quantity of unique style provided by Kate Hudson’s activewear. They like the membership that provides this. They like it enough to grow a $250 million dollar business in three years and challenge Amazon’S 20% of the online commerce business.

 

Gregg Throgmartin, General Manager of Fabletics, believes that it is the membership model, offering a high value brand from the beginning, that is the reason for the marketing success. The personalized service indicates who the customer is and what she wants.

 

Retail stores featuring Fabletics are increasing steadily but a reverse process of success is working. The retail store has not been preparing the customer for online. Customers already know and possess memberships and have liked the experiences on-line. They go into the retail store fully aware of what they are browsing for, and Fabletics is careful to put their best foot forward in the retail stores.

 

The new customer is interested in new experiences that are data based and designed for convenience and shopping. Amazon.com has found that formula, and it has worked for them. Fabletics has been creative and used risk-positive ideas that appeal to the modern shopper, and it is also working. Competition in a new market can only benefit the consumer, who seeks the best of what he wants, for the money he wants to pay. It promises to be a long race.

How CTRMA is Preparing Austin’s Transportation System for the Future

The Williamson County Growth Summit was recently held at the Sheraton Georgetown Texas Hotel. The summit brought together different stakeholders to the future of Austin’s transportation system including Mike Heiligenstein who is the Executive Director of the Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority and Jared Ficklin who is a product designer at ArgoDesign.

 

Ficklin is notable for proposing that Austin uses an aerial gondola system as an alternative means of transport. The members of the panel answered questions from the audience and lent their expertise in the transportation sector. Heiligenstein noted that self-driving cars would play a significant role in the future of transport but said that more projects would have to be built in the area. This is because the suburbs would continue to experience a ballooning population and more roads would have to be put up. Ficklin called for the updating of building and land codes. This is because of the inception of driving cars and the type of parking space and system that they will use. Current codes do not accommodate the development of these buildings. It could be a hindrance for the integration of autonomous cars in the future.

 

Mike Heiligenstein is also the current president of the International Bridge, Tunnel, and Turnpike Association. He is also heavily involved with numerous transportation committees. He is on the board of the transportation institute of Texas A&M. Mike worked for over 20 years as an official in Williamson County before joining the Mobility Authority.

 

CTRMA is based in Austin. It was started to improve the transportation system in Williamson and Travis. CTRMA developed the 183A in Williamson. It was one of the first roads to have a cashless and electronic tolling system in place. It is collaborating with other regional organizations to develop expressways in Central Texas. The authority built the 290 toll road whose capacity was three times that of the previous road and which helped to decongest other neighboring roads.

 

The administration is also looking to make ride sharing easier by partnering with Carma, a carpooling app. This is because there are close to a million empty seats on cars every day. They are collaborating with Metropia to develop an app that analyzes traffic data to recommend alternative routes that motorists can use. The Mobility Authority worked with the Capital Area Metropolitan Organization to start a highway response team to help motorists with car problems. This is because breakdowns are one of the biggest causes of traffic congestion and getting people going as fast as possible is a step in the right direction.

Comparative Law and Sujit Choudhry

Comparative law is generally an analysis conducted within a specific field of the legal studies. This study is used to compare the resemblances and the discrepancies between various legal systems adopted in various countries around the world. Comparative law mostly involves analyzing the relationship among existing judicial systems that include the common law, Chinese law, civil law, Hindu law, Islamic law, socialist law, Jewish Law and Canon Law. There are different sectors within the comparative law that focus on the laws concerning the constitution, administration, civil procedures, business organizations, commercial procedures and criminal activity. Comparative law is a crucial part of today’s dynamic, global world where there are more communication and interaction on a global scale.

The Essential Roles and Objectives of Comparative Law in Today’s Modern Time

The high degree of significance is crucial in today’s modern times because of economic globalization, internationalism, and democratization. The main intentions behind conducting comparative law study are:

To establish a vivid understanding of all legal environments in existence

  1. To modify the level of accuracy within all existing legal environments to reach perfection
  2. To unify the legal procedures accepted within all existing legal environments at a maximum possible scale

Businesses and global interactions can highly benefit through the outcomes obtained from comparative laws. Consequently, businesses operating globally will be able to completely understand and operate accordingly so that no laws are violated within a foreign nation. Moreover, comparative laws will be able to prevent misunderstandings and biases between people of different nations so that equality is maintained within the world assisting the world to function uniformly.

The Significant Role of Sujit Choudhry in Comparative Law

Sujit Choudhry is an expert researcher and an internationally acclaimed specialist in comparative constitutional law. His educational qualifications include his attainment of a Bachelor of Arts Degree in Law at University of Oxford, Bachelor of Laws degree (LL.B.) at University of Toronto and Master of Laws (LL.M.) at Harvard Law School. His high achievements were depicted at the University of Oxford when he was awarded the title of being a ‘Rhodes Scholar.’ At present times, he secures the esteemed position of the I. Michael Heyman Professor of Law at the University of California, Berkeley – School of Law. He is also currently the Faculty Director and Founder of Center for Constitutional Transitions.

Sujit Choudhry is reputed for compiling a vast array of research programs and comprehensive field experiences to establish construction methods. His work is mostly centered in countries within Middle Eastern, South Asian, and African continents. His area of research mainly focuses on designing legal methods to transform violent engagement of politics to diplomatic democratic political forms, to unify ethnically separated societies, to employ federalism, secession, semi-presidential, official national rights, language as well as cultural policies, constitutional developments and decentralization and also to obtain answers to general methodological queries. He had written and published numerous books like ‘The Migration of Constitutional Ideas‘ and ‘The Oxford Handbook of the Indian Constitution’ to aid the development of comparative law study.

New Brunswick Developer Sam Boraie Is On A Mission

Sam Boraie is part of New Brunswick’s Boraie family. The Boraie’s are well-known in New Jersey. Omar Boraie was one of the first people in the city to buy property in the crime-infested downtown area of this old New Jersey town. New Brunswick has been a city since the late 1700s. Rutgers University was established in New Brunswick in 1688. The Johnson family loved New Brunswick enough to make the city the home of their successful company, Johnson and Johnson. But something happened to old established New Brunswick in the 1960s. Crime and drugs destroyed the inner-city area, and people left town and settled in the suburbs. But patriarch Omar Boraie saw an opportunity where others saw destruction. Boraie began to build big buildings in the downtown slums. Omar’s company, Boraie Development LLC, single-handedly started an urban renewal project on njbiz.com that is still going on today.

Boraie Development is managed by Omar’s kids these days. Sam Boraie is the spokesman for the family. Sam is a well-known figure in New Jersey. When Shaq O’Neil decided to return to his roots in Newark, he called Sam. O’Neil and Sam Boraie developed the One Riverview Building in Newark. That building attracted young Millennials to Newark. Many of those young professionals worked in New York but couldn’t afford to live there. Boraie and O’Neil are also working on another project on Rector Street. Atlantic City needed help when the bottom fell out of the market, so the city leaders that ran DevCo called Sam. Atlantic City needed a luxury condo project, and Boraie Development gave it to them. The Beach at South Inlet project is under construction, and it’s not far from the boardwalk.

When Boraie Development is mentioned in New Jersey, the first name that pops up is Sam Boraie. He is the man that people admire for several reasons. For the last several years, Sam has played a part in several inner-city building projects. New Brunswick’s Albany Street Plaza Two building, the One Spring Street building, and the Aspire building have been completed while Sam has been one of the VPs of the company.

But Sam Boraie is defined by more than his ability to build, sell, and manage buildings and real estate. Boraie is a city leader that devotes time and money to the community. The Elijah’s Promise organization is one of Sam’s passions. Elijah’s Promise helps feed the hungry. Sam is a major donor and board member of that organization. See: http://www.nytimes.com/2005/03/06/realestate/at-two-extremes-of-a-housing-market.html?_r=0

The New Brunswick State Theater is another one of Sam’s passions. The State Theater is helping correct some of the flaws in the educational project through music. The historic New Brunswick State Theater has been around since the 1920s, but just like the city, it has gone through a transformation. Thanks to the New Brunswick Cultural Center, and people like Sam Boraie, the State Theater was transformed into a well-equipped venue for live performances. The Theater reopened in 1988, and the Jerusalem Symphony Orchestra performed that night. Since then performers and the audiences have enjoyed the theater’s acoustics and visual presentations. More than 5 million people have attended performances in the theater since 1988. Sam Boraie is on the Advisory Board of the State Theater.

Eric Lefkofsky Jumps From Groupon To Cancer Cure

Eric Lefkofsky, the billionaire former CEO of Groupon and a string of highly lucrative and ground breaking ventures, set his sights on revolutionizing the study of a cure for cancer in 2016 with the initial funding and startup of Tempus. The difference in Tempus is that the focus of the present 29 tech experts is a cure for cancer and not another treatment.

Lefkofsky, an attorney by education, has made a success of all things that he has touched in his career. He is a bestselling business author, a teaching professor of business, a patron of the arts and art charities, and a longtime supporter of over 50 charitable organizations through his charitable trusts.

Eric Lefkofsky has focused his genius on curing cancer. The structure of Tempus is designed to speed up the transition of the latest artificial intelligence development and advances in genetics to produce a technologically guided individualized treatment for cancer. He has collected former colleagues from his various successful enterprises as well as leading thinkers in cancer research, computing, and genetics to form the small core of Tempus.

Tempus will not be involved in the direct care of patients in a hospital or clinical setting. The company plan is to develop the most cutting edge technology possible through the combination of computer science, engineering, and genetic engineering to combat cancer and make these developments available to the physicians and clinicians who are on the forefront of the fight against cancer.

It is clearly obvious from his many blog posts about Tempus and his vision for cancer research and a cure that Lefkofsky has made a detailed study of the presently available information about cancer. His thinking is directed at a big data approach that makes use of all present knowledge to create new solutions based on what has worked in the past and what shows promise to work in the future.

In Lefkofsky’s vision, one of the problems with developing cancer treatments that extend life and finding a cure for cancer are the lack of cooperation between research organizations scrambling for limited research funding and the desire to make a profit from the developments in cancer treatment. Tempus is designed to bridge and eliminate the funding problems and the profit motive.

Tempus has already announced partnerships with leading cancer research organizations. The expectations of the collaborative effort are that the rate of developments that treat cancer more readily and have the potential to cure cancer will expand by 1,000 percent per year due to the structure of Tempus.

At present, the only cure for any cancer can be found for skin cancer in Cuba. One can expect the first partnering in medical research between the United States and Cuba to begin with Tempus.

There are few if any that doubt that Lefkofsky will in fact lead the way to revolutions in cancer treatment and finding a cure. This is after all what the man has done all of his life.

The Perfect Escape From Home Based Distractions

 

They say a man’s home is his castle, but it can also be the thing that is distracting him from the real work at hand. There are the constantly ringing phones, the stack of bills that needs attending to, and the ever-growing list of chores to clutter the mind. This is why many are now turning to a form of working known as “co-working”.

 

Co-working spaces such as WorkVille NYC are collaborative offices in which people who work independently can come together and used a shared working space. It is a place that someone can go to in order to get done the things that they have needed to work on for so long. It provides a safe and quiet area in which to accomplish tasks.

Workville NYC provides its customers with the option to either work in a private office on their site, or to have a dedicated desk among others that is exclusively theirs to work from. Either way, the member can be in an office environment which is more aptly built to help them get things done than is their own private residence.

 

Work-life balance is a critical factor to consider when one works from their own home. It can be difficult to maintain the right balance between the two things no matter how hard you work to do so. That is yet another reason why these co-working environments make a lot of sense. They are specifically designed to help people get done what they need to get done so that they may then move on to enjoying their home life.

 

As with anything done alone, work can quickly become isolating and even depressing. It is not out of the question that one might develop depression or other issues that come from feeling socially isolated. Co-working spaces can help reverse that very serious issue and help one feel more connected with those around them and better about their life in general.

 

There are so many reasons to check out co-working spaces and they are exploding in popularity. The more that people hear about them, the more that people join up. You could be the next to do so.

Emerging Markets Are Important For Igor Cornelsen

 

The financial markets of the world are constantly changing in the view of veteran Brazilian banking expert Igor Cornelsen, who has brought his lifelong experience in the Brazilian banking industry to a global list of clients with Bainbridge Investments. Igor initially used Bainbridge to manage his own range of investments that can be found in various parts of the world, and were made following the high level of research and consideration Igor places on all the transactions made for himself or his clients.

 

Brazil is a key ingredient in the investing recipe Igor Cornelsen offers to his clients and has often been described by the former banker as his superpower, which means he believes the country and other emerging economies should form part of every investment portfolio. Igor believes every investor should look to make a range of investments in different industries and areas of the world to protect their portfolio from being damaged by localized problems in an economy. However, Igor also believes the Brazilian economy offers many good options for investing for the future and his own success in making major Brazilian banks profitable in difficult economic times shows how this is possible.

 

The advice of Igor Cornelsen allows his clients the opportunity to learn how to build a portfolio that will make it simpler than ever before to create a range of investments that will prove a success in the future. Cornelsen believes many of his fellow investment specialists look for options that will produce a high level of return, no matter how long a transaction takes to produce these profits; Igor takes a slightly different view in his opinion that a regular return on an investment or series of smaller investments often add up to the same high level of return that can prove a success for every investor in the future.  See what Igor had to say about the future of Brazil, and read more about the man himself here: http://igorcornelsen.yolasite.com/.
