Off-Track Betting: Drucker Apps Looks at Whether Derivatives Peddled by Goldman Sachs Were ‘Good for Society’

The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University today added a new topic to Drucker Apps, an ongoing conversation about bettering society through effective management and responsible leadership.

Claremont, Calif. (PRWEB) May 1, 2010 -- The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University today added a new topic to Drucker Apps, an ongoing conversation about bettering society through effective management and responsible leadership.

News Image

"Free enterprise cannot be justified as being good for business; it can be justified only as being good for society.”- Peter F. Drucker
This latest addition to Drucker Apps looks at the Goldman Sachs scandal not from a legal standpoint but, rather, with an eye on the firm’s responsibility to provide products of social value.

Taking part in this running dialogue will be regulatory and financial experts, as well as those who’ve been closely tracking all the drama on Wall Street, including Matthew Bishop, co-author of The Road from Ruin: How to Revive Capitalism and Put America Back on Top.

As with every installment of Drucker Apps, this online dialogue is informed by the words of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management. In this way, Drucker Apps ties the timeless wisdom of one of the great thinkers and writers of the 20th century to the hottest issues of today, all delivered by the latest in 21st-century technology.

“None of our institutions exists by itself and is an end in itself,” Drucker wrote in his 1973 classic Management: Tasks, Responsibilities, Practices. “Every one is an organ of society and exists for the sake of society. Business is no exception. Free enterprise cannot be justified as being good for business; it can be justified only as being good for society.”

We invite you to join our Drucker Apps conversation about Goldman’s conduct. We open things up with this question: Does business always need to serve a social purpose and, if so, did something go awry at Goldman? To participate, please visit:

About the Drucker Institute
The Drucker Institute at Claremont Graduate University is a think tank and action tank whose purpose is to better society by stimulating effective management and responsible leadership. It does this, in large part, by advancing the ideas and ideals of Peter F. Drucker, the father of modern management.

The Institute acts as a hub for a worldwide network of Drucker Societies: volunteer-driven organizations that are using Drucker’s teachings to bring about positive change in their local communities.

In addition, the Institute maintains a digital archive of Drucker’s papers; undertakes research that builds on Drucker’s writings; offers an annual $100,000 prize for nonprofit innovation; produces curricular material that distills Drucker’s decades of leading-edge thinking, including a management training system called Drucker Unpacked; applies Drucker’s work to current events (through a regular online column in Bloomberg Businessweek by Institute Executive Director Rick Wartzman and through a social media tool called Drucker Apps); and hosts visiting fellows with Drucker-like insights and values.

The Institute is a close affiliate of the Peter F. Drucker and Masatoshi Ito Graduate School of Management, which is training the next generation of leaders and managers to do good while they do well.

ABC-TV Reports JHD Productions, a Film & Video Company, Speaks Out Against Identity Theft

ABC-TV Journalist Nina Pineda reports JHD Productions has been targeted in identify theft and fake credit card charges to innocent people, billed in the name of JHD, which is speaking out to warn consumers.

Deer Park, NY (Vocus/PRWEB ) April 30, 2010 -- ABC TV News reported that Hugh Daly, owner of video and film company JHD Productions, is taking a stand to speak out against identity theft and consumer fraud that used JHD’s name to steal small sums, usually less than one dollar, from debit and credit cards of people across America.

On WABC-TV News Channel 7 in New York City, journalist Nina Pineda reported about Daly and JHD Productions, saying, “It is his business identity the criminals stole to defraud victims’ credit cards, a practice that costs U.S. consumers more than $50 billion a year.”

In her ABC news report, online at, Pineda reported attempted to open a $25,000 credit line in the name of Daly’s JHD Productions, but the savvy filmmaker caught it in time and cancelled the card.

“The credit card company would not tell me who opened an account in the name of JHD Productions, even as they cancelled it. It is a shame a criminal gets protection and I was not informed about who was using JHD’s name to bilk people.”

Daly said, “The scam charges people’s credit or debit cards less than one dollar, such as 40 or 50 cents, to test vulnerability, assuming people will be too busy to track down a minor charge. If you don’t get stop the small charge then the next one might wipe out your account.”

People have 60 days to notify their bank about inappropriate charges on their credit or debit cards to remove the charges, said Daly.

The award winning Cinematographer who founded JHD film studio three decades ago, added, “JHD Productions does not work with the general public and we never get paid by credit card since we always bill our clients by invoice. We reported this to government authorities, but it hasn’t stopped.”

Dobson Communications, a full service public relations firm in Ridgefield, Connecticut, online at, has a long-term relationship with JHD Productions and stepped in to help Daly reach out to the media.

Brian Dobson of Dobson, said, “We’ve worked with JHD for two decades for our marketing-video needs, so we helped Hugh Daly since media focus can generate government agency response.”

Daly said, “Local police in Suffolk County, Long Island, have been very helpful and focusing on the problem and we are hopeful the scam artists will be caught.”

JHD Productions is online at and is a full service video and film company with a state-of-the-art studio in Deer Park, New York. JHD Productions has the latest technology, cameras, editing suite and green screen capability for high-tech production of product, training and other videos as well as the production of independent feature films.

DUI Lawyers in AZ Earn Not Guilty Verdict in Reckless Driving Case

DUI Lawyers in AZ from the law offices of David Michael Cantor obtained a verdict of not guilty in the case of State v. Stokes a reckless driving case.

Phoenix, AZ (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- DUI Lawyers in AZ from the law offices of David Michael Cantor obtained a verdict of not guilty in the case of State v. Stokes (City of Scottsdale Court Case No. TR2008028574), a reckless driving case.

In Stokes case, the defendant was leaving a school parking lot in which a security guard was directing traffic. As the guard was directing traffic, he stepped in front of Stokes' vehicle as was bumped by the defendant's car which was traveling a mere 3 mph. As a result the security guard contacted the police, and due to the fact that Stokes had multiple prior driving violations on his record the officer decided to file a criminal charge.

At trial the judge properly found that there was no heightened risk of substantial physical injury or death as required by statute as a result the judge found that the police had overreacted and that Stokes was not guilty of reckless driving.

"The judge could see that the only reason Stokes was cited for reckless driving was due to his prior traffic violations, and not due to the facts of what occurred in the parking lot," said DUI Lawyer in AZ David Michael Cantor.

Life Insurance Company of North America Found to Have Acted in Bad Faith by U.S. District Court

Federal Judge rules insurance company’s claim denial of accidental death policy was a bad faith breach of contract. They are ordered to pay the claim in full in case of Jody Lynn Scanlon v. Life Insurance Company of North America.

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Jody Lynn Scanlon of Vashon Island, Wash. purchased $500,000 accidental death insurance coverage for her husband Michael through her employer, King County starting in Oct. 2003. Michael Scanlon died Nov. 2, 2006 from a subdural hematoma suffered in an accidental fall. Accoriding to court documents, Life Insurance Company of North America (LINA) refused to pay the claim.

News ImageThe opinion of the insurance company’s in-house doctor was that Mr. Scanlon’s death was caused by a heart attack. However, as detailed in court documents, the conclusion of those who treated Mr. Scanlon at Harborview Medical Center and the autopsy report from the King County Coroner’s agreed he died from a subdural hematoma suffered because of an accidental fall.

“This is a perfect example of insurance bad faith conduct and the modus operandi of insurance companies today. It was ‘deny, delay and defend’ to a ridiculous extreme.”
Mrs. Scanlon’s attorney, Michael E. Nelson of Nelson Langer Engle requested that LINA reconsider their denial. Nelson presented conclusive medical evidence that Mr. Scanlon did not suffer a heart attack. LINA again denied the claim, according to court documents, forcing Jodi Scanlon to file a lawsuit in Feb. 2008. The suit alleged that the insurance company’s refusal to pay the claim was a bad faith breach of the life insurance contract. Mrs. Scanlon also sought compensation and damages for emotional distress resulting from LINA’s denial and her attorney’s fees, costs and interest.

“It was a shame that Jodi had to go to court to recover life insurance proceeds that were obviously owed,” said Michael Nelson. “This is a perfect example of insurance bad faith conduct and the modus operandi of insurance companies today. It was ‘deny, delay and defend’ to a ridiculous extreme.”

The case (C08-0256-JCC) was heard before the Honorable John C. Coughenour, U.S. District Court, Western District of Washington. Judge Coughnehour ruled Mr. Scanlon’s death was accidental and covered by the policy and there was no evidence he had suffered a heart attack. He further determined that LINA’s reliance on their in-house doctor constituted a bad faith denial and breach of contract. He ordered LINA to pay the proceeds of the accidental death policy, plus attorney’s fees, court costs and interest. Judge Coughenour also ordered Mrs. Scanlon’s claim for emotional distress damages to proceed to a jury.

“The court responded by ordering the full amount of the insurance policy, plus attorney fees, court costs and interest to be paid and found that the insurance company had acted in bad faith,” Nelson continued. “Subsequently the parties settled the emotional distress damages prior to trial. Although Mrs. Scanlon is happy to put this emotional and stressful ordeal behind her, the life insurance company should have never denied her claim. Its fraudulent conduct caused her considerable distress. Thankfully, we have courts that can hold insurance companies accountable.”

About Nelson Langer Engle
Nelson Langer Engle attorneys, for more than 30 years, have helped victims who have been seriously injured. They are experts in personal injury and insurance law. The firm filed the first lawsuit in the nation against Farmers Insurance Company complaining that Farmers’ use of “colossus,” a computer program used to evaluate pain and suffering, unfairly devalued injury claims against the company’s own insureds.

Secrets to Life, the Shroud of Turin, and Heaven's Mysteries Revealed

Can medicine, science and faith finally come together and prove what lies beyond death? Have the scientists of today found proper evidences that reveal the existence of our souls, Heaven and God? If so, where is Heaven? What does Heaven consist of? And most importantly, has anyone really gone to Heaven and returned to tell us about it in this day and age?

Global harmony cannot exist unless there is cooperation from everyone.

Salt Lake City, UT (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Many profound questions ranging from the Meaning to Life and those related to religious teachings found in the Dead Sea Scrolls about Heaven and how the image in the Shroud of Turin was formed, are accurately answered in the new book “In Search of Heaven, the Eternal Life” (now available from AuthorHouse Publishing).

In Search of Heaven, the Eternal Life
In Search of Heaven, the Eternal Life
Author, Rodger W. Berg, helps each reader decide for themselves if life really continues in a spiritual realm after physical death – and if Heaven truly exists. Many religious teachings from each of the world’s religions (Buddhism, Christianity, Hinduism, Islam, Judaism), have undoubtedly influenced every aspect of our lives for the past 2,000 years. He is sure the information provided will finally clear up nearly 100% of all the misunderstandings, misconceptions and controversies surrounding all religious teachings of all faiths from its unsurpassed clarity.

Skeptic and believer alike can read the astonishing new results offered in this special one-of-a-kind powerful spiritual book that is for all people of all faiths, even non-faiths, as it features the most comprehensive evidences ever compiled on the subject of Heaven,” says Berg. It is based on his extensive research in the fields of medicine, science and theology, along with what he has learned as a certified therapist and researcher for the past 22 years. The information revealed within the book is so universally accurate it can literally unite all religious faiths, thus ending all forms of conflicts and wars as it brings about global harmony.

“There are millions upon millions of people in the world who are seekers of truth, want clarity, and are willing to go the extra mile in finding it. If you were one of these seekers, would you not prefer the correct answers to your spiritual questions be based upon someone’s experience who has actually been in Heaven, rather than ignorant intellectual hearsay?” Berg asks.    

Global media sources, such as the BBC, CNN, and others have reported repeatedly that physicians, scientists, and members of clergy of all faiths from around the world are baffled about why so many people and children of all ages and ethnic backgrounds, including those with no religious preference whatsoever, experience being out of their physical bodies in what is termed an “Near Death or Out-of-Body Experience.” These people claim seeing vivid visions, loved ones who have passed on, and at times, being overwhelmed with the powerful emotional feeling of love itself. From the accurate evidences offered, Berg says that nobody needs to be baffled any longer for this book totally clears all of these mysteries up…factually.

According to a Gallup Poll, more than eight million people nationwide have personally experienced a Near Death Experience. This leaves us to wonder, just how many more have gone unreported?

The author believes this book will be the “second savior for mankind” as it becomes the second most read book in the world; the first being the Bible of each faith. It proves once and for all that Jesus, Heaven, God and Eternal Life are not philosophical conceptions any longer, but realities based on the most undeniable medical, scientific and Biblical evidences ever recorded in human history, thus making it the most sought after book in the world!

Berg is an author, teacher, lecturer, spiritual counselor and certified therapist.

Top Researcher Writes on Autism for Britannica; Baron-Cohen, Others, Report on Causes, Diagnosis and Treatment of Widespread Condition

Progress in the scientific understanding of autism and autism spectrum disorder are the subject of a recently published article in the Encyclopaedia Britannica by a leading British researcher in the field.

Chicago (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Progress in the scientific understanding of autism and autism spectrum disorder are the subject of a recently published article in the Encyclopaedia Britannica by a leading British researcher in the field.

News ImageIn “The Autism Spectrum,” Professor Simon Baron-Cohen of the University of Cambridge reviews recent discoveries on the causes, diagnosis and treatment of these conditions, which impair social skills, language and learning ability. The severity of symptoms varies among sufferers, those with strong cases being diagnosed with classic autism, while milder forms are classified as Asperger syndrome.

There have been important developments in the culture of autism sufferers, who have coalesced into something akin to a civil-rights movement seeking to reduce the social stigma of their condition.
As director of Cambridge’s Autism Research Centre, Baron-Cohen works at the center of the field. Among the findings he reports on is the significant genetic aspect to autistic disorders, including the higher risk of autistic spectrum conditions among siblings of affected children and abnormalities in the X chromosome that are associated with autism. The report also discusses several forms of special education that are effective in teaching social skills. One interesting method is Lego therapy, using the popular plastic construction toys, which, Baron-Cohen writes, “exploits the child’s strong interest in systems (in this case, constructional systems) to encourage turn taking and social communication.”

April being Autism Awareness Month in the United States, Britannica editors were also keen to highlight the encyclopedia’s broader coverage of autism. It includes a general article about the disorder by Professor Gene Blatt of Boston University School of Medicine, another on “atypical autism,” and a short entry on the history and definition of autism spectrum disorder. Professor Blatt’s article was revised recently to incorporate current estimates of the incidence of autism and new research findings.

There have also been important developments recently in the culture of autism sufferers, who have coalesced into something akin to a civil-rights movement seeking to reduce the social stigma of their condition.

“The adult Asperger community has generated its own term for those who do not have Asperger syndrome or autism: 'neurotypicals,'” writes Baron-Cohen. “This is in part intended to convey that one view of autism spectrum conditions is that they are not a disease or a disorder but simply an atypical form of neurological development, akin to left-handedness. This view is less stigmatizing and makes an important political point—namely, that those individuals whose brains develop and work differently need not be judged to be inferior to the majority. They are simply ‘different.’” He points out, for example, that people with Asperger syndrome are often highly intelligent.

Small Drug Rehab Declares War On Local Pain Clinics

Pain clinics beware! The pain management epidemic has gotten out of control, and two veterans of the drug and alcohol rehabilitation field have taken it upon themselves to do something in the absence of action by lawmakers.

Boca Raton, FL (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Alternatives In Treatment, a residential substance abuse treatment facility in Boca Raton, Florida, has declared war on owners of local pain clinics and/or physicians who prescribe pain pills without first assessing the client for dependence. Alternatives is an established Florida drug rehab program practicing addiction treatment for over 20 years with an excellent reputation for ethical treatment. In the last 6 months, 5 pain clinics have opened within 3 miles of the treatment program.

"Pain clinics have become an epidemic in south Florida, spurred by lax regulations on how doctors and pharmacies can dispense medicine," says Jack Frydman, executive director of Alternatives. Pain clinic patients don't even need to go to a pharmacy, because they can get their fix directly on-site. These clinics often have someone out in the street with signs trying to lure potential customers. A sign was seen by one of Alternatives' employees on the top of a taxicab advertising 99 cent roxicodone pills. These facilities have "bargain days," which are 2 for 1 specials that give people a $25 credit if they bring in a friend. Clients of the clinics sometime come from out-of-town just to get their fix. They often drive aggressively, do instant u-turns and cut across lines of traffic to get to parking lots. Most of the clinics have armed guards pacing up and down in front of them to control crowds. Frydman states, "we feel that if the average person saw this kind of a scene at their orthopedic doctors' offices, they wouldn't step one foot in the door."

There have been over 800 deaths attributed to these clinics in Palm Beach County in the last 2 years. The majority of buyers are between the ages of 18 and 25 and do not understand that they are going from smoking pot and drinking beer to using synthetic heroin. The overdose rate is just the tip of the iceberg.

Alternatives, in an effort to combat the dragon of addiction and despair, is beginning an aggressive marketing campaign and will distribute literature in all clinics that advises people how to get off of these drugs. Alternatives is also keeping 10% of their beds available for scholarships to those who want help and cannot afford it. The owners of Alternatives recently staged their own demonstration with a giant sign outside their offices, advertising serious treatment for those suffering from pain clinic abuse. Alternatives feels that "drug abuse" is very much a misnomer--the drugs abuse the user. Alternatives hopes to get this message out to their neighbors in their continued efforts to save lives.

Donna Hearn, PhD is the executive clinical director of Alternatives in Treatment, Inc.

If you saw this kind of chaos and despair at your orthopedic doctors' office, would you go in?

Attorney Caree Annette Harper Slated to Defend Man Shot by David Reeves, Former Riverside Officer Convicted of Armed Robbery

The trial of Lumard Wilson will begin on May 6, 2010, hearing set for April 30. Caree Harper, attorney for the defense, will call to dismiss the charges based on facts in the case.

Riverside, CA (PRWEB) April 30, 2010 -- Caree Annette Harper, will begin defending Lumard Wilson against criminal charges of 245PC, battery of an officer, in Riverside Superior Court. The hearing is scheduled for April 30, 2010 and the trial is set to begin May 6, 2010 in Riverside, California...

Case Details (Case# RIF141184 Dept 42)

According to case filings, on January 11, 2008, former Riverside Officer David Reeves, and Riverside Officer D.J. Floyd contacted Wilson while he was seated in his vehicle, which was legally parked on a Riverside residential street. A camera installed in one of the police cars depicts Officer Floyd smashing Wilson's driver's side car window and hitting Wilson. Wilson attempted to flee in the vehicle while Floyd beat him with a flashlight when Reeves opened fire.

The video included in the filing shows that Former Riverside Officer Reeves fired multiple shots into Wilson's vehicle. Wilson was struck with multiple bullets in the neck and hand and ultimately crashed a few blocks away.

Floyd and Reeves maintain that the defendant attempted to run them over with his vehicle while fleeing the scene.

"These officers did not even have the legal cause to issue Mr. Wilson a parking ticket, much less proceed with the unreasonable detention and ultimate use of deadly force," states Caree Annette Harper, attorney for the defense.

Former Riverside Officer Reeves has since been convicted of unrelated multiple charges of armed robbery and is currently serving 15 years in Kern Valley State Prison.

After pleading guilty on February 23, 2010 to four counts of armed robbery and three counts of attempted armed robbery, all of which included allegations of using a firearm during a felony, Reeves was sentenced on March 11.

Reeves was on the police force at the time of the crimes and blamed his behavior on an addiction to prescription drugs that got out of control.

Visit Harper's website for more information on her firm and the case.

The trial of Lumard Wilson is scheduled to begin on May 6, 2010.
