In just a few years time, travelers to the American West Coast will have the opportunity to stay in a state of the art biotech hotel. This hotel is currently called the Genesis South San Francisco, and it will be located right by Airport Boulevard in San Francisco.
Phase 3 Real Estate Partners, the main company behind this biotech hotel, recently bought both of the Centennial Towers for this project. Representatives from Phase 3 told reporters that they want the final hotel to have over 100 rooms, exercise spaces, research facilities, a retail area, and a restaurant.
Designers hope that the biotech workers in this property will be able to attract other experts interested in the field. The hotel is being designed to have many areas of “collision space” where both biotech workers and hotel residents can meet and exchange ideas.
One of these towers will be more hotel oriented, while the other will have greater facilities for hard research. Phase 3 hopes this project will be completed sometime in 2018.
The overall goal of this project is to help increase innovation within the field of biotechnology on the West Coast. By including many areas where workers and hotel guests can relax, exercise, and eat together, Phase 3 hopes to create an atmosphere of innovation and progress.
Some experts claim that Phase 3’s project is an attempt to compete with the Kendall Square area of Cambridge, Massachusetts. There are over 150 biotech companies working in Kendall Square, which makes it one of the most concentrated areas in the world for biotechnology.
The Genesis South San Francisco hotel could be the first step towards a vibrant biotech community on America’s West Coast.
The Cone Marshall is a law firm that is based in the Southern Pacific country called New Zealand. The people behind this firm that deals with tax trust management as well as tax trust are Geoffrey Cone and Karen Marshall. The two are from New Zealand. The law firm has its headquarters in Auckland and is known for specializing in other services than the mentioned ones such as tax confidence as well as trustee services to several companies. The founders of this firm are very experienced and can boast of perfect winning record. For instance, Karen used to work in the litigation department of a law firm based in London before being fished by the Cone Marshall in the year 2005.
One year later after joining the firm, she was appointed to become principal of this firm and her main responsibility was to offer some advice to the statutory trustee companies. She was appointed to this position due to her experience when it comes to trust management. On the other hand, Geoffrey Cone, the co-founder of Cone Marshall is very experienced when it comes to tax law and trusts. He used to work in the UK before moving back to Auckland; he specializes in international tax, trust planning as well as trust management activities.
Recently, Geoffrey Cone disagreed with the media reports that New Zealand is a Tax Haven and offered some of his insights why the country is not one. He said that the country lacked a private, secretive banking industry that accompanies a tax haven. He also stated that the transparency within the New Zealand government hinders the country from being called tax haven. Tax records are well kept and are easily exchanged with other governments upon a request. He also said that the penalties that follow noncompliance are a sign that New Zealand is not a tax haven and will not feature in the near future.
Cone talked about the new rules by Michael Cullen that requires an individual to provide details about their deals. Under his leadership, Cone Marshall has managed to become one of the most successful law firms in New Zealand specializing in international and wealth tax law. He further discredits the reports by the New Zealand media about the country being a tax haven by talking about the records that must be kept and worst of all in the English language. To become a tax haven, New Zealand has to do more that its currently doing.

Keeping your body healthy and beautiful can be difficult. Your daily beauty routine probably consists of twelve to twenty skin, makeup, and hair products; all of which may include some harsh ingredients. While a full-bodied cleanse can help to remove toxins from your body and rejuvenate your skin, your hair needs a little extra love.
Unlike skin products and makeup which can introduce toxins to your body, your hair products actually strip your hair of it’s natural oils and nutrients. So although your body benefits from a cleanse that removes toxins, your hair will benefit from a cleanse that will restore the oils and nutrients lost.
To improve the health of your hair you should add a cleansing conditioner to your beauty regimen. Cleansing conditioners are natural and gentle, containing none of the harsh ingredients of shampoos so that your hair isn’t stripped of anything. Cleansing conditioners work to restore the natural oils of your hair and strengthen it.
In addition, various cleansing conditioner formulas are available to meet the specific needs of your hair. For example, the WEN hair care product line created by Chaz Dean offers conditioning cleansers such as the Bamboo Green Tea Cleansing Conditioner which improves elasticity and shine in hair. Another WEN hair care cleansing conditioner, the Lavender Cleansing Conditioner, adds volume to your hair.
Once you experience the benefits of using cleansing conditioners on your hair you can introduce cleansing conditioners to everyone in the family. If you fall in love with cleansing conditioners by WEN, they also offer cleansing conditioner formulas for men and children.

There are a total of 116 state parks in California. These have always been a popular place for people to visit while they are in California. However, that will increase a lot on November 25. This is Black Friday, a day that is traditionally known for being the most popular shopping day of the year. However, there will be a serious incentive for people to pay a visit to California state parks instead of going to their local shopping mall. This is a result of free passes being given out for all of the state parks in California. These passes are only good for Black Friday.
This should increase the number of people visiting these parks during the Thanksgiving weekend. Therefore, visitors should expect large crowds in areas that are frequented by tourists. The park service will be increasing patrols because of the larger amount of people that will be in the parks on Friday. The park service has said that they might make giving away free passes on Black Friday an annual tradition if the response is good this year.
The Thanksgiving weekend is typically a busy one at state parks throughout California. This is because of the amount of people visiting from other states. Also, people prefer to visit many of the parks in late November when the temperature is much lower than it is during the summer. Visitors are advised to get to the parks early in order to take advantage of the most convenient parking areas.
Maggie Gill has seen her career as the President and CEO of the Savannah, Georgia based healthcare system, Memorial Health flourish in recent times as her team of medical professionals won a number of 2016 Healthcare heroes Awards. A changing healthcare environment in the U.S. poses the CEO with a new set of challenges she is facing with a new plan, known as the “Pathway To Excellence” strategy that is designed to push forward the healthcare provider over the course of 2017; the idea behind the new strategy comes as Gill is looking to lead Memorial into the future as a stand alone healthcare provider as opposed to seeking a partnership with others.
Memorial Health had already reached high levels of success as the university based medical group had achieved a series of improvements since Maggie Gill was appointed to the dual positions of CEO and President and CEO in 2011. Maggie Gill saw her impressive work pay off with seven awards at the Georgia Medical Society’s annual Healthcare Heroes Awards in 2016 where the group saw individual and group awards given to Memorial Health.
Despite the success Maggie Gill and Memorial Health achieved at the Healthcare Heroes Awards ceremony the CEO has looked to approach the challenges faced in the healthcare industry with a plan designed along with Premier Inc. The use of strategic planning with Premier shows how Maggie Gill looks to partner with the best improvement companies in the U.S. to ensure a successful future for the company. Maggie Gill believes the restructuring of Memorial Health will see the group be positioned in a better place to cope with the changing market demands provided by the Affordable Care Act and other evolving areas of the medical industry. Continuing the 15 year association Memorial Health has with North Carolina based Premier Inc. is seen as evidence of the continued improvements Maggie Gill is hoping to make for the patients and staff of the healthcare provider.

He went into direct selling experimenting with a few different brands at first, but then while on vacation he got the idea for Talk Fusion when he wanted to send videos as emails. Converting videos into a file that could be emailed was something most email providers were saying could not be done, but Reina and a friend of his found a way to do it.
