In an industry response to deal with title defects, Nationwide Title Clearing (NTC), Inc. has announced the release of their new website which features residential property records that are easily accessible and accurate. Nationwide Title Clearing is the United State leading provider of property records that are needed by the mortgage and real estate industries in order to facilitate the buying and selling of properties.

Title defects are a serious concern in these industries. They usually occur when someone lays claim to a property that is actually owned by someone else. Title defects can hold up the closing of a home until the issue is resolved. Other times that property defects occur is when the document wording does not fit industry standards, it’s missing required signatures, older resolved liens have not been removed, and failure to correctly record or file the real estate documents.

Because title defects cause such a problem when closing a home, it’s important that they’re accurate. The Chief Executive Officer of NTC said that it’s vital to make sure titles are accurate before the property is sold or transferred. He elaborated that his company obtains the data they use from several sources, with the most important being county records. The records are then reviewed through automation that is backed up by human verification. Furthermore, the new online website is able to determine exactly what documents the user needs even when they fill in the online forms incorrectly, which saves money from unnecessary reports being inadvertently ordered.

NTC was founded in 1991 in Palm Harbor, Florida. The company is privately held recently opened another office in Dallas, Texas. This location has a data center that backs up the data stored in Palm Harbor. NTC went to this expense in order to ensure that a major disaster doesn’t wipe out the data they have on every residential property in the United States. They can have the data in both locations as well as staff in both locations so that a major disruption can be smoothly dealt with.

NTC offers its employees constant training opportunities. They now offer some of their robust training in a two-day training program that they offer to companies in the lending, investing, and mortgage industries. The program is overseen by Dave LaRose who is the company’s Vice President of Technical Excellence.

 

It seems that life can be a cruel joke sometimes. Our physical prowess peaks in our 20s and we spend the rest of our lives on a slow decline. As we age, the risks of certain health conditions begin to increase. We must work even harder to take care of ourselves to avoid certain health problems.

One of the best motivating factors for taking care of ourselves out there is Life Line Screening. This group of medical professionals performs preventative healthcare by screening you for a variety of health problems. These screenings can detect certain diseases and conditions before they become a problem so that you can avoid discomfort, pain or even death.

Their stable screening is ultrasound. Ultrasound was originally developed in the 1940s to detect submerged submarines during World War II. Now the technology computer into your body to detect health conditions in their earliest stages.

One of the health conditions that the ultrasound is astoundingly good at identifying is carotid artery disease. This terrible medical condition happens when fatty deposits build up in the carotid artery of your neck. This blockage can lead to decreased blood flow to the brain which increases your chance of stroke. Stroke is essentially a heart attack for the brain

It is incredibly important to identify carotid artery disease because it develops incredibly slowly. That means with a simple ultrasound from Life Line Screening, you can see this health condition developing and it’s very earliest stages. This can allow you to make lifestyle changes to reduce the fatty deposits in your artery and take medication. This may allow you to avoid a very invasive surgery where doctors open up your neck to remove the plaques in your artery. I would not wish that surgery on anybody, so I hope you take advantage of Life Line Screening.

It was officially announced that Dick and Betsy DeVos discussed their generosity at the confirmation hearings and now have a number of $139 million to go with that giving. A major part of the story has been Dick and Betsy’s support of private elementary and secondary education schools and their staunch defense of school of choice, but they’ve also given to grassroots organizations such as Action Institute and Hudson Institute. The DeVos’s have given to a number of Republican political candidates over the years, and have been active in the state’s party leadership committees, but the donations there are relatively small compared to the impact they’ve had on Grand Rapids, MI as a whole.

 

Dick DeVos was born in the Grand Rapids area and was raised by entrepreneurial-minded parents who also gave to organizations and individuals in need. His father was Amway cofounder and ardent supporter of former President Ford, Richard DeVos Sr. Dick often watched the business operations at Amway as a young boy and decided to work his way through the company once he completed his bachelor’s degree at Northwood University. He and his brothers were soon made vice presidents of Amway operations and began exploring sales in the Asian and Pacific markets. Dick briefly left the company for a few years to start his own company, The Windquest Group in 1989 and then run for public office to the Board of Education in 1990, but he returned as CEO in 1993 and remained there until 2002. Today he manages investments and funds local businesses and initiatives at The Windquest Group while also funding charter schools and art foundations.

 

Dick and Betsy’s education activities began with the support of the Children’s Scholarship Fund through their own Education Freedom Fund in the Dick & Betsy DeVos Foundation. The group primarily provided for low income students to attend private schools, but the DeVos’s also wanted more done at the state level to ease the burdens on families. They tried to get a measure passed that would allow families to receive tax credits for attending private schools but came up short. 10 years later they opened their own school and opened the doors to anyone interested in learning aviation as well as technology and liberal arts at the West Michigan Aviation Academy.

 

Dick DeVos ran in the 2006 gubernatorial race when he became dissatisfied with the overall direction the state of Michigan was headed, but he fell short to then incumbent Jennifer Granholm. In 2012 he and several members of the Mackinac Center for Public Policy and the Koch Foundation brought right-to-work legislation to the table that passed and was promptly signed into law. Dick DeVos also made two contributions, one to local Grand Rapids hospitals that won the Spectrum Health Foundation Art of Giving award in 2006, and later donated to David Rubenstein’s Kennedy Center project that was named the Dick & Betsy DeVos Institute for Arts Management.

 

The CEO Chairman of the Board of Seattle Genetics, Clay B. Siegall, Ph.D., enjoys posting interesting articles on his blog. A new one he just posted is about the possible return of Tasmanian Tigers which were thought to have gone extinct 80 years ago. There have been enough credible sightings reported that researchers at James Cook University in Australia have decided to go see if they can find them. They plan to go to the area where these animals have been reported and set up several cameras in the area in order to get pictures of them.

Another article he posts says that the HPV vaccine, which prevents several types of cancer, can be administered with fewer shots of a vaccine that is more effective. The Centers for Disease Control and other advisory committees said that the number of shots could be reduced to two from the currently recommended three. The shots are given to boys and girls between the ages of 9 and 14.

Dr. Siegall’s career has been focused on founding cures to cancer. His research focuses on antibody-drug conjugates as effective cancer drug therapies. His cancer drug Adcetris was approved by the FDA in 2011 and is now being used in 65 countries around the world.

In 2016, Dr. Seigall conducted an interview with the Puget Sound Business Journal. During the interview, he said that he plans to add another 12 cancer drugs to the pipeline at Seattle Genetics over the next year. He also plans to widen the use of Adcetris to treat additional forms of cancer such as Hodgkin Lymphoma.

Dr. Siegall also stated that he has another drug, currently called 33A, that entered the crucial Phase 3 clinical trials in 2016. 33A was created to treat acute myeloid leukemia. Two other cancer drugs that could enter Phase 3 includes one for breast cancer and two that are for treating bladder cancer.

In order to support the growing amount of drugs under development, Dr. Siegall said that he was looking to hire another 120 employs between the company’s locations in Bothell, Washington and its office in Switzerland.
