The successive method of cell treatment has been bone marrow transplantation. This form of cell therapy provided cancer patients with healthy regenerated new blood cells. Although in most cases, in case of damaged cells due to the incidence of burn and injuries, cells from the victim`s body can be used for the cell therapy.

Susan McGalla is the perfect example of the saying what a man can do a woman can do better. Born in East, Liverpool, Ohio she was raised together with two brothers by a father who was a football coach. No one cut her any slack because she was a girl and growing up she understood that when it comes to work, there are no jobs for men or women, everyone creates their opportunities. She attended Mount Union College where she received a bachelor’s degree in business and marketing.

She began her career working in different managerial and marketing positions at Joseph Home Company from 1986-1994 and later that year joined American Eagle Outfitters. She first held the position of divisional merchandise buyer in women’s clothing. During this period all the executive slots were occupied by men and Susan McGalla had to work her way up the ranks to become its Chief Merchandising Officer and President. As a career woman, she is an inspiration to other women, and according to her, most of them seek an authentic perspective and would like to be seen as executives and not just women. Susan left American Eagle Outfitters in 2009 and joined Wet Seal Inc. as its president in 2011. When she left the company, McGalla founded P3 Executive Consulting and holds the position of Creative Development and vice-president of Business Strategy at Pittsburgh Steelers.

Women initiatives that seek to support them miss the main issue that is women supporting women in business and according to Susan McGalla creating sponsorship changes will assist in breaking the cycle of gender discrimination cycle. The Sponsor would advocate for women to lead important projects and assignments while still mentoring the women making organizations gender-diverse. Susan herself has never thought she was entitled to anything because she was a woman or carry a chip over her shoulder due to prejudices. She works on empowering more women to take up executive roles in their organizations, and she has spoken in numerous women conferences asking the women to emulate her approach and attitude as they traverse the male-dominated work environment.

On October 17th, 2017, George Soros, did the unthinkable by giving away a jaw-dropping $18 billion to his Open Source Foundation. The figure dwarfed any other private donation given to a single charity organization in all recorded history, according to the New York Times.

The massive donation made Soros’ OSF the second most well-funded philanthropic entity in the U.S and globally. OSF ranks second to the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation. Armed with the billions, the foundation gears up to become ever more vocal of social, civil, and political injustices pervasive in marginalized quarters of the population.

Soros and his foundation have in recent times embarked on a boisterous endeavor to tackle the historical injustices meted towards the LGBT communities by the American police.

Soros Funds Anti-Trump Protests

Previously, the OSF was one of the largest donors towards fighting the sporadic Ebola outbreaks in Africa. The organization also pays a keen interest in nurturing the arts and culture scene of the disparaged Roma people. Soros doled out an estimated $10M following the election of Donald Trump as the president of the U.S. The money went into organizing protest rallies against the surging hate crime attacks that were taking place all across the nation in 2017. Soros was categorical in saying that the election of President Trump had coincided with the awakening of ‘dark forces of intolerance’.

 

The American far right movement has fought a bitter battle with George Soros for years. The far right supporters claim Soros is a devil who seeks to undermine the will and sway of elected democracies under the pretense of promoting liberal reforms. The billionaire’s unwavering stance has earned him mortal enemies outside the U.S in far-flung places like in Ireland and his native country, Hungary.

The C.E.O of the National Philanthropic Trust, Eileen Heisman, however, disagrees with Soros’ naysayers. Heisman argues that America needs Soros now more than at any other time in history. The CEO also lauds the 82-year-old as being a straight shooter with no hidden and ulterior motives behind his massive donations.

The incoming president of the Open Society Foundation, Patrick Gaspard made it absolutely clear that the ascent of Donald Trump had effectively pushed OSF to go into a high gear.

Living in Closed Societies

Soros’ early life was defined by unending pain and struggle. He, of all people, ought to know the struggles and the pains associated with living in a closed society having grown up in Nazi-occupied Hungary until 1947. The Open Society Foundation derives its name and mindset from one of Soros’ favorite philosophical novel, ‘Open Society & Its Enemies.

Political and Social Benefactors

After successfully completing his economics studies at the LSE, he went on to dominate the global financial scene for the next couple of decades. One of his milestone achievements was when he predicted the fall of the British Pound in 1992. That single deal saw the world-famous hedge fund maestro earn close to a billion dollars and there was no stopping his zeal from there on. Soros would use his newly acquired fortune to impact positive social political change in the world.

Today, he’s revered as one of the most reliable and generous donors to the Democratic Party in the U.S. on average, OSF gives away an estimated $800M to 900M annually to a vast plethora of organizations that promote equality, fairness and justice for all people regardless of their race, creed and sexual orientation. and Follow him Twitter.com
