Stream Energy and its new philanthropic wing were recently featured on patch.com. Stream Energy is a Dallas based company that provides their associates with energy, who then market it to various companies. Stream Energy, its employees, and its associates are passionate about the communities they work in, and they want to be involved in charitable causes. For that reason, Stream Energy has set up a foundation called Stream Cares to help causes around Texas. They were moved to action after seeing the devastation from Hurricane Harvey in Houston, but they have been giving to charities for over a decade. They are focused on issues that affect Texas, but they are most focused on the problems faced by the Dallas community. They have formed a partnership with Hope Supply Co to offer help throughout Texas. Stream Energy is using its profits to give back some much needed help to their customers.
They see homelessness as a huge problem in Dallas, and it is one that has only become worse in the last few years. They are particularly moved by the plight of homeless children in Dallas. Stream Cares raises money for everything from diapers to school supplies for children, but they do much more than just donate money. They and their employees want to give up their time to help the children, and they recently took a group of kids to a water park. For children like this it is a rare opportunity to have some fun. Stream Energy’s employees also enjoyed the experience, and they are always looking for ways to help those less fortunate. They know that donating time and effort is just as important as the money they give. Stream Cares has also done work with veterans and their families, and they recently invited ten daughters of veterans to a function in which they all received toys. https://www.dailyforexreport.com/david-faranetta-new-cfo-for-stream-energy/

The Kodak Eastman Company has been on the verge of a financial crisis for years and Sahm Adrangi thinks they will soon be declaring bankruptcy. This comes after he and Kerrisdale Capital, a company that he founded and is currently the chief investment officer of, published a negative report on the company’s future. A few months ago, Kodak announced that they would be releasing two new products that they insist will change how photographers get paid for their work. Unfortunately for Kodak, Sahm Adrangi does not agree.
Sahm Adrangi has made a large part of his fortune by predicting the failure of shady companies and arranging short sales of their stocks. This is essentially betting against a company instead of for like traditional stock investments. If Sahm Adrangi’s predictions about Kodak Eastman are correct, he and his investors stand to make a lot of money with this short sale attack.
These two new products that Sahm Adrangi doesn’t see even completely making it to market are being called KodakCoin and KodakOne. KodakCoin is a digital currency that is an attempt by Kodak to capitalize on the cryptocurrency craze that is sweeping the world. KodakOne, a concept that Sahm Adrangi considers a flat out “silly” idea, promises to compensate photographers for their work that is being used without a license. Supposedly, KodakOne will use blockchain technology to identify the images that are being used unlicensed and then contact the company or individual who is using them in order to request payment. While there are several legal and technical issues that Kodak will face in the development of this product, one of the biggest hurdles is one of the simplest ones. KodakOne would pay the photographers whose images are being used without permission with their new cryptocurrency KodakCoin. It’s highly unlikely that anyone would prefer this payment method to traditional currency.
For Kodak Eastman Company, their years of attempting to operate on a capital structure that just isn’t sustainable may finally be catching up to them. While KodakCoin and KodakOne may be exciting to investors now, it’s only time before they fizzle out.
Adam Milstein recently wrote an article on JNS entitled, Unlikely Radical Alliances Fan the Flames of Anti-Semitism Worldwide. In this article he names the radical alliances as Radical Islam and the Far Left. Calling out no other than Linda Sarsour, Imam Siraj Wajjah, Rasmea Odeh and then added a throwback: Ayatollah Khomeini the leader of the Iranian Revolution. In regard to the far left Adam Milstein named: Senator Bernie Sanders, Jeremy Corbyn, and Paul Eisen.
In any of these kinds of arguments there is always going to be some semblance of truth and the rest is a Salem Witch Hunt. It groups anyone who speaks out against your branch of oppression as being anti-something else. Like what the far right did to Colin Kaepernick. He took a knee during the National Anthem to protest police brutality on black Americans. The far right said he was disrespecting the flag. Same kind of thing here, some of the people Adam Milstien calls out have done anti-Semitic things. Denying the Holocaust, calling for the complete eradication of Israel, that’s real high on the anti-Semitic spectrum. Where Milstein loses grip with reality is when he puts Linda Sarsour, “my friend in my head” and Imam Siraj in this group.
Adam Milstein says Imam Siraj, is an unindicted co-conspiratorof the World Trade Center Bombing. What is a unindicted co-conspirator? That sounds like code for innocent but still reaching. I’ve visited Imam Siraj Masjid in Brooklyn and I’ve never once heard him speak negatively about any religious group.
Linda Sarsour is a Social Activist Badass! She is a Brooklyn native and unapologetic ally dope. She is also Palestinian -American and there is no way you can be Palestinian and pro-Zionist. Honestly, there’s no way you can be a decent human being and be pro-Zionist but I digress. There is a difference between being against the illegal Israeli Occupation of Palestine and being anti-Semitic. In the same way that Kaepernick taking a knee was not about being anti-America but being for the fair treatment of black people by the police in America is the same way being against Israeli troops murdering innocent Palestinian citizens is not the same as being Anti-Semitic. Unless, Adam Milstein views murdering the innocent as some version of Judaism I’m not aware of.
