Adam Milstein Entrepreneur and Philanthropist

Adam Milstein is a native of Israel who is a real estate investor, a philanthropist, and a community leader. He grew up in Israel and fought in the Yom Kippur war as a naval member of the IDF. In 1981 he came to the United States and earned his MBA in Entrepreneurship at USC, which was followed shortly with the beginning of a career in Commercial Real Estate.

He is the co-founder and Managing Partner of Hager Pacific Properties and is also very active in the community in various philanthropic and community organizations. He is the co-founder and the National Chairman of the Israeli-American Council. He also sits on the board of several other organizations of note.

Adam was recruited by several US companies after he receives his MBA, but they had no knowledge nor did they want to know about his life experiences and overall knowledge, so he decided to go into business for himself. That is when Hager Pacific Properties was organized, and the ball started rolling to make it the successful Commercial Real Estate Brokerage that it is today.

As Adam Milstein looks back on those days, he realizes that when business are started they don’t immediately become successful, and the same is true for new investments in commercial real estate. It takes great patience to be involved in this business, and it is not a “get-rich-quick type of business at all.

When asked about what happens during a typical day at work, Adam answers that you don’t always know what for certain each day is going to look like so he likes to take each day as it comes. There is more structure to require activities the more assets that are acquired which require more activities and follow-up.

Speaking of following up, that is one of Adam’s primary activities because he says that if you don’t make that a habit, there are plenty of details that will slip through the cracks. He likes to be the instigator of pushing ideas until they come to life. Daily follow ups make it possible to track the details, so the unexpected doesn’t become a reality.

Yanni Hufnagel Breaking Through Invisible Barrier In College Sports

There is this sort of invisible barrier and professional and college sports that you may not have recognized. This invisible barrier certainly exists in the NBA. Just take a look at your favorite team and try to identify one Jewish player. Better yet, try to identify one Jewish coach. You won’t find many. The NBA has no Jewish players and there are only a handful of Jewish coaches in college basketball. Fortunately for all of us, Yanni Hufnagel is one of those college basketball coaches.

He grew up in Scarsdale, New York, where he was unable to make his own high school varsity basketball team. In order to stay close to the game he loves, he became the teams announcer. He was able to display his knowledge of strategies as the announcer; strategies that he developed playing with basketball figurines as a child.

Continued to pursue the game of basketball in college even though he was a lacrosse player. He quit lacrosse, took an unpaid internship with the New Jersey Nets, and graduated from Cornell University with a sports management degree. He moved on to Oklahoma as an unpaid graduate assistant. This position put him on the basketball court for practices and in the boardroom for the team’s recruiting strategy sessions.

He took this valuable experience with him to Harvard University where he became an assistant coach. His four years there were wildly successful as the team went 79-24. 2011 was the peak of his time at Harvard when the team won a record 26 games and became nationally ranked for the first time in school history. He was nationally recognized in a CBS sports pole that pointed to him as the assistant coach most likely to succeed.

Only in his early 30s, Yanni Hufnagel is poised to be the next big name in college basketball coaching.

The Securus Technologies Video Visitation System is a Major Step in Enhancing Community Safety

Securus Technologies continues its commitment to developing and implementing technological solutions in the criminal justice system that enhance overall community safety. Securus Technologies does so with its Video Visitation system.

 

The Securus Technologies permits friends and family members of those in correctional institutions the ability to engage in meaningful visits without the need to be present at a penal institution. There are a number of community safety enhancing benefits associated with the Securus Technologies Video Visitation system.

 

First, research reveals time and again that incarcerated people that are able to maintain meaningful contact with loved ones are less likely to reoffend when they reenter society. The reality is that for many families traveling to correctional facilities to visit a loved one is a challenge. The Securus Technologies Video Visitation system permits these individuals the ability to have real visits with loved ones, no matter where they happen to be located.

 

Second, in-person visitation is, by definition, a security risk point for correctional facilities. In-person visits is a portal through which contraband routinely flows. No matter how adept correctional officers are at any given institution, it simply is not possible to thwart all attempts to convey contraband into an institution through in-person visitation.

 

The Securus Technologies Video Visitation system eliminates the opportunity for contraband to be passed onto an institution. This works to significantly lessen the amount of drugs and other items being smuggled into a correctional facility.

 

Video Visitation is being utilized by an ever increasing number of correctional agencies in the United States. As of this juncture in time, 172 U.S. correctional agencies have implemented the Securus Technologies Video Visitation system.

 

The Video Visitation app has been downloaded over 232,000 time. Visits occur at a rate of over 160,000 sessions a month using the Video Visitation technology. This amounts to over 2 million visits annually.
