Adam Milstein – Son of Israel

To say that Adam Milstein is a son of Israel is something of an understatement. He was born in the northern Israeli port city of Haifa. In 1973, during the Yom Kippur holiday, Israel was attacked by the combined armies of Egypt, Iraq, and Syria. Adam Milstein served in the Israeli Defense Forces repelling the Egyptian invaders and was in the unit commanded by then General Ariel Sharon that pushed the Egyptian army across the Suez and back into Egypt.

In 1974, following his military service, Milstein married the former Gila Elgraby. In 1981, he moved his wife and two young daughters to the United States to take advantage of educational and economic opportunities. After earning an MBA from the University of Southern California and becoming a managing partner in the commercial real estate firm of Hager Pacific Properties, Milstein retired from business to become an advocate for the nation of Israel and for Jews worldwide. He spends his days writing and speaking about the dangers faced by the Jews from the unlikely alliance of Islamic extremists and extreme left wing radicals.

The fundamentalist incarnation of Islam taught in Mosques and Madrasas worldwide, has long been allied with the extreme right and is now forming and maintaining alliances with the radical left. Across the political spectrum and around the world, fanatics from both extremes are synchronizing their actions against Jews in general and the nation of Israel in particular, focusing their efforts on the destruction of the Jewish homeland.

Adam Milstein points out that in joining radical Islam, the extreme left overlooks the Muslim treatment of women, minorities, and homosexuals, and even campaigns for the implementation of sharia law. They portray all Muslims as being innocent and childlike, subjugated by Israel and her allies. Islam is depicted as “the religion of peace,” with Israel cast in the role of evil conquerors.

Adam Milstein demonstrates that the menace is spreading onto college campuses. Extremists at Tufts University, a private research institution in Medford, Massachusetts, published a “Disorientation Guide” that depicted Israel as a nation of white supremacists. One of the authors pointed out that the guide could not possibly be anti-Semitic because she herself is Jewish.

Anthony Petrello Leads Nabors Industries on to Market Domination.

The petroleum extraction industry has long been one of the most competitive and dynamic businesses in the United States. Going through cycles of boom and bust that would leave most other industries shaking in their boots, the wildcatters of the petroleum extraction business in the United States have long been hard men of strong character, willing to do what it takes to make a buck and go the extra mile to make sure that the country has the energy on which it can thrive.

Of all the roughneck CEOs of oil businesses throughout the United States, perhaps nobody fits the archetype better than Tony Petrello. Although he looks the part, Tony Petrello is also one of the most highly credentialed and well-educated CEOs in the entire petroleum business. With a Juris Doctor degree from Havard Law School and an MS in mathematics from Yale, Petrello maybe the most intelligent CEO of any petroleum firm in the United States.

And he has used his intelligence to his benefit and to the benefit of stakeholders in his firm. Petrello first came to work for Nabors Industries while still a junior partner with bankruptcy workout specialist law firm Baker McKenzie. Nabors Industries had fallen on extremely tough times and was going through a period of financial restructuring. The board of directors noticed that Petrello had many of the qualities that they were looking for in the next CEO. They also realized that they would need a special kind of person to lead them out of their corporate restructuring, someone who would be able to see the contours of the future and lead the company into areas of high profitability.

They selected Petrello to join the executive team. Throughout the 1990s, this proved to be a highly propitious bet, with the company entering some of the most high-tech fields in the petroleum extraction business. To know more, click here.

Under Petrello’s leadership, Nabors Industries was able to successfully enter the realm of hydraulic fracturing. At the time, this was a little-known technique of oil extraction that was hardly in use at all. But throughout the 1990s, Nabors Industries was able to perfect platforms that were able to highly effectively and efficiently extract oil from some of the more difficult shale deposits across the North American landscape.

This bet would prove to be incredibly profitable, with the opening of the Bakken Shale formation in North Dakota providing a windfall of hydraulic fracturing opportunities for Nabors Industries.

Clay Siegall goes from junior researcher to major biotech player

When Clay Siegall was still in college, a close family member became ill with cancer. Throughout the family member’s ordeal, they were given the traditional regimen of chemotherapy, a highly lethal poison that is directly administered into the bloodstream, causing widespread secondary effects. When the family member developed a severe case of anemia and nearly died as a direct result of the drugs being given to cure the cancer, Dr. Siegall decided that he would like to spend his career dedicated to the research of better ways to fight this terrible disease.

 

After receiving an MS from the University of Maryland in biology and a PhD in genetics from George Washington University, Dr. Clay Siegall was hired by the National Cancer Institute, one of the most prestigious cancer research organizations in the world. Over the course of the next four years, Dr. Siegall worked on a number of projects. One of these was a specific type of targeted cancer therapy idea that would use human antibodies as a means to deliver to lethal cytotoxin directly to the surface of tumor cells. The idea behind this delivery mechanism was that it would completely eliminate the need to systemically release large amounts of poison into the patient’s bloodstream, thereby dramatically reducing the side effects associated with traditional chemotherapeutic regimens.

 

Eventually, Dr. Siegall, who had proven himself to be a star researcher at the National Cancer Institute, was hired by Bristol-Myers Squibb, one of the largest pharmaceutical companies in the world. While there, Dr. Siegall led a team of researchers, developing some of the most innovative drug types of that ever been seen in the cancer research space. It was at this point that Dr. Siegall first coined the term antibody drug conjugates, a type of drug that uses synthetic human antibodies as the means to deliver chemotherapeutic agent directly to malignant tissues.

 

Over the next 10 years, Dr. Siegall continued working on this exciting new form of drugs. Eventually, he was able to effect the synthesis of artificial human antibodies through the use of an ingenious cloning process that he had created himself, which used live rodents to create molecular templates for synthetic human antibodies.
