Shervin Pishevar says hyperloop technology could be travel breakthrough of century

Posted by SugarMusic on

1959 was a year that arguably marked the peak of U.S. innovation in the transportation realm. That was the year that marked the introduction of the Convair 880, the fastest mainstream airliner ever produced. The 880 was capable of speeds of up to 700-plus mph, getting from Los Angeles to New York in almost an hour less than the time in which modern aircraft are capable of making the same journey. Yet, few people ever stop to consider that in almost every way, besides the admittedly important area of overall safety, traveling by jet in 1959 was a far superior experience to what it is today, nearly 70 years later.

At the same time, while the technology that drives modern automobiles would barely be recognizable to a mechanic in the late 1950s, the end product has hardly changed at all. In 1959, families of four drove their luxurious vehicles at speeds of up to 80 mph on highways that extended from coast to coast. They had plenty of room for luggage in the trunk. And they enjoyed such features as power seats, power windows and headlights that automatically turned on when it got dark outside. Aside from a few dazzling gadgets and better fuel economy, the cars of 1959 did pretty much all of the same things that the cars of 2018 do. And in many cases, they didn’t even do a worse job of them. Style is one notable example.

Shervin Pishevar says that the era of transportation stagnation may be coming to an end

Shervin Pishevar is one of the most respected venture capitalists and entrepreneurs in technology. Shervin Pishevar says that the long era of transportation stagnation in the United States may be about to come to a close. He says that hyperloop technology could prove to be the first real breakthrough in transportation that the country has seen in over 70 years.

Shervin Pishevar says that hyperloop technology will soon be demonstrated in California, making the trip between Los Angeles and San Francisco in just a fraction of the total time it takes by airline.

Paul Mampilly Quits Lucrative Employment to Serve Public Interests

Posted by SugarMusic on

The education journey of Paul Mampilly was not one of the easiest journeys that can be described. He underwent some struggles while in school, most of which were financial. His father had been unemployed for years since he had completed college and so he had been working as a casual worker in the nearby city of Bombay, in India. This was the country where Mampilly was born and raised as a very humble child. Later, the life of Paul Mampilly and his family would change after their father relocated them to Dubai. This country had been experiencing an economic boom after it had begun exporting oil and so it favored the livelihood of the family. Mampilly and his sister got the luck to enroll and complete their college education.

After the graduation, Mampilly had passed very well in his undergraduate studies, and so he got a chance to start working at the Wall Street, for the Bankers Trust Company. There, he joined as the assistant portfolio manager but was later promoted to a full manager, responsible for the company’s portfolio. Bankers Trust Company would later be acquired by the Deutsche Bank, a transaction that forces Paul Mampilly to transition his job to start working as a research assistant at the company. He was then poached by the ING which employed him as the senior research analyst.

After working as a research analyst at the ING for a while, Kinetics Asset Management later recruited him to become the manager of their hedge fund that had been performing poorly for some years. This was a challenge to Paul, but he was up to the task. After managing the hedge fund portfolio for a period less than a year, the value of the portfolio skyrocketed to $25 billion, yielding a historic investment return of 37.5% for the investors. This brought Paul Mampilly to the good books of the investment industry.

However, Paul felt that his service to the Americans was not as optimal as he would have wished. He had been using his expertise to boost the wealth of the “already wealthy” individuals and not the neglected majority of the American citizens. This made him quit his job and start publishing investment advice which he has been dispensing to the public at very affordable prices.

Taking a Journey With Vijay Eswaran

Posted by SugarMusic on

It is almost common knowledge that life is not a straight line. It is like a river, starting from tiny springs, meandering through the valleys and lakes to its destination. The river faces rocks, faces hills and sometimes valleys, but it never stops. It might slow down, but it will never stop until it has reached its destination.

Vijay Eswaran life journey has no difference with that of the river. Born in October 1960, he faced his first bend with moving to a different country. London was the place he had gone to drink from the fountain of knowledge. After his graduation from the London school of economics, life threw another curveball to him. Vijay Eswaran did not get the job he hoped for. He had to accept the circumstance and worked picking grapes and in construction in Europe.

However, suffering is not permanent, he was introduced to binary marketing which led to him acquiring a job. He worked in Multilevel marketing for a while before he became an information system engineer for countries around the world.

Thirteen years later he went back home. Vijay was offered a job to run part of Cosway group. This opportunity helped him have the greatest moment of his life, he knew MLM was why he was born.

In 1998 he co-founded the QI group that applied Multilevel marketing for different companies in different sectors. His company grew and that led him to grow. Vijay Eswaran is currently the executive chairman of QI group that has investments in over 10 countries.

A man that has gone through his struggle and success must have a secret to go through it. Vijay Eswaran attributes his success to simple business and personal philosophy.

In his book In Sphere of Silence (2005), he attributes it to the one hour every morning of silence. Vijay is a man that believes in conquering fear and service to others above himself. For a man influenced by great leaders and being one himself, Vijay Eswaran focuses on the moment and his target alone but accepts and embraces changes that come.

Vijay Eswaran has authored several books which include; thinking zone ( 2008), stepping stones (2010) and wing of thought (2011). These books give him the tools to share his principles and life lessons with others.

Another tool he uses is public speaking which he does in business and management conferences. However, what is a man worth if he does not give back to his fellow man? Vijay understands this, and he gives back through the RYTHM foundation and Vijagaratnam foundation.

Truly, Vijay’s life is truly a river, QI group its mouth and MLM the water carried along.
