Dr. Jennifer Walden Is a True Doer Who Doesn’t Make Excuses

Who is Dr. Jennifer Walden?


Besides being a successful plastic surgeon with her own practice Dr. Jennifer Walden is the pride of her home town. Not to mention, an inspiration to independent businesswomen everywhere. Walden’s road to success is one paved by hard work, determination, commitment, dedication, and faith in one’s self. Every accolade Walden has received she’s earned. Nothing was given to her as a hand out. Something that fills her with pride and confidence.


Walden’s journey to becoming one of the leading individuals in her profession began in her birthplace of Austin, Texas as the daughter of two parents in medical fields. Walden’s father was a dentist and her mother a surgical nurse. Her parents always stressed to her the importance of education while she was growing up.


After graduating high school she enrolled in the University of Texas at Austin, where she earned a bachelor’s degree. Upon graduating from the university Walden got into medical school and was put on a waiting list for the program as a bit of an afterthought. Walden took offense to being pushed aside and worked hard to prove that she belonged, graduating Salutatorian of her class. It was during this time that she settled in to the idea of becoming a plastic surgeon.


She then became a fellow at the well respected Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital through the hospital’s post-residency aesthetic surgery fellowship program, after being accepted into the plastic surgery program at UT Galveston. Becoming a fellow at the hospital was a big accomplishment in itself, considering it only accepts two fellows a year.


Walden established her first practice while in Manhattan. With help from her mentor, Sherrell Aston, she built her practice into a prosperous business for close to a decade.


Walden decided to move back to her hometown of Austin when she had her twin sons. Being a family oriented person, she wanted her boys to grow up around a loving family environment like she did in her early life.


She started up a whole new practice in Austin without looking back. Her hard work earned her a spot on Harper’s Bazaar magazine’s list of the 24 best beauty surgeons in the U.S.

Securus pinpoints GTL’s inaccuracies in its press release

Following a press release issued by Global Tel Link (GTL) on June 7, 2016, Securus Technologies, a leading provider of innovative civil and criminal justice integrated technology solutions, has come out strongly to refute what it terms as GTL’s erroneous claims and set the record straight through the following press release.


GTL assertion 1: According to GTL, the US Patent Trial and Appeals Board (PTAB) has validated its patent No. 7,256,816. Based on the PTAB ruling, GTL seeks damages as well as an injunction against Securus Technologies in Texas federal court.


Securus clarification 1: Because the court has stopped further legal process on the case, GTL has no right to seek neither damages nor an injunction against Securus. What’s more, Securus is seeking a rehearing of the allegedly ‘PTAB-validated ‘816 patent’.


GTL assertion 2: PTAB upheld all 55 claims related to the ‘816 patent, which copyrights GTL’s video visitation technology that allows law enforcement to observe video visitations.


Securus clarification 2: Securus does not use GTL’s ‘816 patent on its video visitation platforms.


GTL assertion 3: PTAB ruled that GTL’s innovations are patentable, which allows GTL to copyright its innovations.


Securus clarification 3: Contrary to GTL’s assertions, the PTAB only maintained their unwillingness to review the claims, and in that regard, Securus has filed a petition for rehearing.


GTL assertion 4: According to GTL’s CEO, the company will move to court within a few months to provide evidence on how Securus infringes the PTAB-Validated ‘816 patent.


Securus clarification: It is highly likely that the case will be heard in court in a few months or even this year.


GTL allegation 5: If the court grants GTL damages and an injunction, Securus will be forced to stop incorporating GTL’s patented innovations in its video visitation technology


Securus clarification 5: Because Securus is not using any of GTL’s patented innovations; therefore, an injunction is highly unlikely.


GTL assertion 6: According to Oliver, Securus has established a reputation of bullying industry competitors through lawsuits, threats, and vague accusations. GTL seeks to end this bullying cycle by defending its technologies in court.


Securus Clarification 6: Securus has over the years reached amicable license agreements with industry counterparts and in particular GTL.


Rather than agreeing to a license agreement on patents, GTL has chosen to wage war over patents with Securus despite the fact that Securus boasts of twice as many patents and favorable patent metrics compared to GTL.


With their headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies serves over 3,450 correctional facilities and over 1.2 million convicts in North America with its wide range of innovative technological solutions.

Those who have used it acclaim its exceptional ability to create a positive learning environment, which fosters the general wellbeing of learners.

Since the app was advanced, parents are not required to visit schools so that they can learn about the educational and social development of their kids. The addition of more features and educational content to the platform will go a long way in making learning a fulfilling experience. The co-founders similarly plan to extend the app’s use to the home environment.

What Inspired the Development of Class Dojo?

Liam and Sam point out that they were inspired to develop the platform after noticing that most working-class parents were finding it difficult to monitor their kids’ development. Visiting schools for prescheduled monthly meetings was also hectic, time consuming, and expensive. Therefore, they wanted to come up with a platform that would enable teachers to program learning activities in advance. Such activities would be made known to parents through photos and videos. Already, millions of parents throughout the US are keeping tabs on the development of their kids through the app.

About Class Dojo

Liam and Sam co-founded the company in 2011. Its groundbreaking app, Class Dojo is currently used in over 80,000 American schools. Since setting up the firm, the two entrepreneurs have mostly focused on the addition of more features onto the platform.

Livio Bisterzo Turns Chickpeas Into Snacks

hippeas van livio bisterzo

It’s hard to find snacks that are actually healthy, and even harder to find healthy snacks that can fit into a restricted diet. Livio Bisterzo of Green Park Holdings recognized that problem and created a solution with Hippeas.

Hippeas is a snack food made from puffed chickpeas. They are kosher, gluten-free, vegan, and organic, so almost anyone can eat them without worrying about breaking a dietary restriction. They are also healthier than most other snacks, with relatively high protein and fiber combined with low calories in every serving. Chickpeas are also good for the environment, since they are a nitrogen-fixing plant that can help to restore the soil. That combination of health, sustainability, and accessibility has been more than enough to make them successful. Bisterzo has built a successful business on the strength of Hippeas, which can even be found in places like Starbucks instead of just selling in health food stores.

Part of the snack’s appeal comes from its mixture of health and flavor. Health food has a reputation for being strange and disgusting, but Hippeas does not have that problem. Puffed foods are common snacks, so people don’t have to go too far outside their comfort zones the first time they try it. It also comes in a variety of flavors that people can recognize, so they have an easy time picking their first taste of Hippeas. Those factors make it easy for Hippeas to overcome to the stigma that can come with healthy food and get people to try it, which is often all that it takes to get people started with healthy snacking.

It’s no surprise that Livia Bisterzo could develop such a successful product. His life experiences and education have certainly prepared him for success. He was born in Italy, but moved to UK when he was 18 to study in London. He went on to get experience working in marketing before he started his first business in 2003. He spent the next seven years building up a portfolio of lifestyle, consumer, and hospitality ventures. He left them behind in 2010, but went on to acquire the Danish beverage company called Little Miracles in 2011. That was his first venture into health and nutrition, which eventually led to the start of Green Park Holdings in 2015. Bisterzo and his family moved to Los Angeles a year later, and followed the move by launching Hippeas, which has since grown into a major success.
