When he headed the London-based office from 2014 to 2017, he was responsible for changes within the company and the industry that allowed them to gain a foothold in their part of the industry. In many ways, Harry Harrison was responsible for disrupting the way that the financial industry had done business in certain aspects.

Harry Harrison had been with Barclays for more than 2 decades before leaving and remained humble throughout his career. He knows that the success of Barclays could not be attributed to just him as an individual, but also to the diverse teams in which he collaborated with on ideas. One of the things that Harry Harrison learned during his career was that sometimes a project is just too much for one person or group and multiple perspectives must be used in order to get results.

While Harry Harrison is telling the story of his life and career now, he wishes that he had done it sooner. Throughout the years, he has made many different connections with clients, colleagues, and collaborators that he is grateful and proud of. He has achieved an immense amount and looks back on it all fondly as he prepares himself to pursue the next part of his career.

It’s important to take care of yourself physically and mentally to perform at your best. For Harry Harrison, yoga is a great way to stay relaxed and healthy. While many professionals had recommended he start engaging in the practice for years, it wasn’t until later in life that he made the decision to try it out.

As the owner of her own yoga practice, his wife had been urging him to try it as well. With the help of his wife, he believes that he is able to manage the stress of life in a much more effective way. At this stage in his career, Harry Harrison has learned how important it is to enjoy himself. While he celebrated the big achievements in his younger years, he didn’t stop to enjoy the small things.

The secret of success, according to Michael Hagele, is to exercise regularly. “I think physical activity plays a big role in recharging and sharpening your mind.” he says. This is the reason he spends so much time in the mountains on his bike.

On August 31st, Charlamagne tha God responded to Eminem’s surprise album Kamikaze. Along with Angela Lee and DJ Envy, Charlamagne Tha God discussed several bars from Eminem’s album.

 

Along with Drake, Joe Budden, and a plethora of other hip hop personalities and rappers, Charlamagne himself was a target of Eminem on Kamikaze. Eminem rapped: “Charlamagne gonna hate anyway, doesn’t matter what I say/Give me Donkey of the Day/”

 

Charlamagne’s opinion of Revival, as well as the opinion of the majority of the hip hop community, is the primary reason that Eminem made the surprise album. The general consensus was that Revival was one of Eminem’s weakest project. Critics may have sparked the fire inside of Eminem, but they are not immune from being trashed in Eminem’s bars.

 

However, Charlamagne has a different opinion about the new album. He confessed the Kamikaze is a good album.

 

The 2018 BET Cypher was also criticized by Charlamagne. Charlamagne explained that he loved that a white artist was standing up against prejudice, however; the freestyle by Eminem on the show simply wasn’t that impressive. Charlamagne’s negative opinion of the freestyle stems from believing that Eminem didn’t give it his all on the verse, not from disliking the content.

 

“I don’t hate. I tell the truth,” said Charlamagne. “That’s not hatin – me saying Revival was wack – ’cause clearly Eminem thought Revival was wack too,” he explained. “That’s why he gave us this sneaky album[…] He thought Revival was wack. He knows it was wack.”

 

The most controversial bar of the album was aimed at Tyler, the Creator. According to Charlamagne, Eminem doesn’t understand the impact that a homophobic slur has an an entire community. Despite Tyler, the Creator calling himself the same word that Eminem used on Kamikaze, Eminem’s usage of the word has damaging effects that will be felt all over the world.

“[Eminem] is throwing a shot at millions of gay people around the globe,” said Charlamagne. “But I don’t think he care.”

 

Charlamagne Tha God is a household name in entertainment.

 

As one of the co-hosts of the hip-hop morning show, ‘The Breakfast Club,’ on iHeartRadio, it doesn’t take a rocket scientist to see where he got the inspiration for his new book entitled “Shook One: Anxiety Playing Tricks On Me.” The title comes from two hip-hop songs that speak out against being anxious and afraid, which is mostly what his second written work explains.

Sahm Adrangi is the founder and Chief Investment officer for Kerrisdale Capital Management. This company researches the telecommunications, biotechnology and mining industries. Their goal is to correct misinformation and/or misconception about overvalued short stock and underfollowed long stock. In March 2018, Sahm Adrangi’s company issued a scathing report about Proteostasis Therapeutics Incorporated (PTI).

PTI is a Cambridge, MA based company that is working on a drug to treat cystic fibrosis. On March 18th, the company announced that it received the Breakthrough Therapy Designation for the drug PTI-428. The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) gives this designation to expedite the development and review of new drugs. The FDA believes this drug will offer substantial improvement over existing drug treatments. The designation resulted from an announcement by Proteostasis that its Phase II trials showed meaningful improvement in patient’s pulmonary function relative to a placebo.

Kerrisdale Capital warns that Proteostasis is providing investors misleading information on the effectiveness of the drug. In a report completed at the end of March 2018, Kerrisdale stated the stock price spiked by 100% after the FDA announcement. After only five days, Proteostasis share count doubled (suggesting influx of new and possibly uninformed investors). PTI immediately offered a nine million share public offering within days. Proteostasis want to sell shares at the new higher rate.

Sahm Adrangi believes the data provided by PTI does not represent the true outcome of the trial. When one digs deeply into the trial, the data shows minimal improvement from using PTI-428 against a reasonable baseline. The improvements shown was a result of the placebo group doing extremely poorly. As a result, the test group performance looked promising when compared to the placebo. Phase II trial results mirrored the disappointing results of the Phase I trials. Therefore, Sahm Adrangi plans to short PTI’s shares (believes the share price will decrease in the future). Kerrisdale believes PTI’s actual value is about 70% to 90% less than its current market price (at time of article, the valuation was $6.99 per share).
