Brian Torchin cures medical staffing ills

Published / by thehillsadmin / Leave a Comment

Brian Torchin started his career wanting to help people feel better. He became a chiropractor and helped people with their back pain through the years. While he spent time running medical offices in Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware, all in the Philadelphia area, he noticed that patients were not the only part of the medical treatment staff that deserved better from the system. Overworked medical receptionists, coders, nurses and physician’s assistants. Torchin spent several month trying to figure out a way to solve this problem, and maintain peak efficiency. He believed changing the way medical offices were staffed was the only to solve the problem he solved. HCRC staffing was the result. Learn more about Brian Torchin at postings.com

Brian Torchin brings the same caring philosophy he used as a chiropractor to managing the health of an organization. HCRC, the company he founded, makes sure that every new staffer brought into a facility is likely to cure whatever problem the facility had, even if this problem is something as simple as being short-staffed. Medical facilities know that the demand for their services will increase with an aging population, at least until the Baby Boomers no longer make up a significant portion of the population. Generation X is at least smaller than the generation the preceded it, and the Millennials are larger portion of the population than Generation X.

HCRC staffing currently works with hospitals in Philadelphia and the nearby tristate area. The company plans to expand to other areas of Pennsylvania, New Jersey and Delaware. Hospitals in the area use the company to provide qualified permanent and temporary medical workers. The types of workers include all of the fields mentioned above and technicians who can operate radiological equipment, MRI equipment, and ultrasonic equipment. Brian Torchin hopes to incoroporate medical technology into his medical practice as his staffing company grows.

Paul Mampilly Shares A Cautionary Tale About Bubble And Bitcoin

Published / by thehillsadmin / Leave a Comment

Many people agree that Bitcoin is in a historic bubble. One financial expert and investor, Paul Mampilly, says that he’s seen a number of bubbles during his time, unfortunately taking part in a few of them, but nothing approaches what has been happening with Bitcoin and, to some degree, the other cryptocurrencies. Paul Mampilly was a Wall Street hedge fund manager for many years and his professional opinion is that it’s just a matter of when the bubble will burst and the values will come crashing to earth, not a matter of if.

As an example, Paul Mampilly points to the dot.com crash that occurred in 2000 and 2001. Prior to that, in 1999, pretty much every investor saw tech stocks as going absolutely nowhere but up, forever. He had a good friend named Tess who was investing everything in tech stocks. She was really excited because some of them were up by 1000% or more. Even companies that had been established long ago, like Qualcomm Inc, had their stock going nuts. Tech companies that were losing money, not making it, were also shooting up in value.

Around this time Paul Mampilly could see that everyone had lost their minds. He pulled everything he had out. He also advised his friends, such as Tess, that the tech bubble couldn’t possibly last. They scoffed at him and kept putting more and more money into the market. Eventually, as was really inevitable, the crash occurred wiped out the value of entire companies. Some people, like Tess, lost everything she had.

This serves as a cautionary tale that when everyone starts racing to invest in one thing, like Bitcoin, mania takes over. Eventually, the market for them runs out of buyers and when that happens the value drops fast and it drops hard. Whoever is the last one holding the bag will end up paying the price and no one knows who that is until after it happens.

Paul Mampilly took an early retirement from Wall Street because the lifestyle is too extreme and the only people getting wealthy or those who already are. Tired of this, he moved to North Carolina and started publishing a newsletter he named Profits Unlimited. He shares his views in this newsletter on what company’s will outperform according to his research. He lets his readers know when to buy and when to sell stocks so that they can save for their financial goals, like retirement.

Key Points from Adam Milstein’s Interview with the JTA

Published / by thehillsadmin / Leave a Comment

The Israeli-American Council’s annual conference is held this month, and in the days leading up to it the Jewish Telegraphic Agency (JTA) caught up with Chairman and President of the IAC, Adam Milstein. Milstein has spent many years in both Israel, his home country and America, and one thing he’s been working on is helping Jewish Americans understand more about the nation of Israel, but also helping Israelis in Israel understand a little more about their Jewish American counterparts. His two main foundations at the Milstein Family Foundation and the IAC have put out quite a bit of information about the cultures.

One thing Adam Milstein said is that there are actually three different groups at work within the bridge between the Jewish community of America and the nation of Israel, and that third group is those who’ve come from Israel after it was established in 1948. They’ve been looked at as rejects by Israelis back home, and also couldn’t quite fit into the already established Jewish American community of America. What he has done through the Milstein Family Foundation is to help this group find their identity in the US, extend their hand to the Jewish community and thereby help forge ties through philanthropy and educating people about the state of Israel. And he’s also helped Jewish Americans understand better why Israel’s citizens do what they do politically, and also helps Israelis better understand where American Jews are coming from. The Milsteins have even sponsored trips for young Jewish Americans to see life in Israel. To know more about him click here.

Adam Milstein and his wife established their foundation back in 2000. They had met back in the 1970s while Adam was serving Israel during the Yom Kippur War, and after being married and Adam’s completion of his bachelor’s at the Technion, the Milsteins relocated to the US and started a real estate company known as Hager Pacific Properties. As part of their endeavors to connect with American Israelis and the Jewish Community, they sponsored cultural events and also have had a Hebrew learning program to teach families about. They also have started pro-Israel video creation competitions through the StandWithUs Foundation.
