Goettl: Superior Air Quality

The article discusses a recent event where two HVAC companies came to the aid of an elderly man, who had been enduring the hardships of malfunctioning utilities at his residence during the summer in Las Vegas. Jim Siler, 72, had been struggling with inoperative plumbing and air conditioning at his home for three months. Water had also been leaking under his home, which resulted from a breakage in the plumbing system. Due to inefficient air conditioning in his home, Siler spent the entire summer with open windows to alleviate himself from the sweltering heat outside. The plumbing issues forced Siler to go outside on a day-to-day occurrence to fill five buckets with water to support his daily routine for personal hygiene. Siler lacked the funds to cover the maintenance cost of having the air conditioning and plumbing system serviced and repaired at his home. Social services in Las Vegas referred Siler to Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber to assist him, under the guidance of Ken Goodrich, the owner of both companies. Goettl Air Conditioning and The Sunny Plumber donated thousands of dollars in materials to repair plumbing and air conditioning at Siler’s residence.

Seattle Genetics CEO, Clay Siegall Discusses Enterprising Expansion Plan

Seattle Genetics, a cancer research, and drug company, has announced its plans to expand its drug portfolio and at the same time employ over 120 people in its US and Switzerland offices. The announcement came amidst recent visit by vice president Joe Bidden who visited the region to see the progress of cancer research.

With the company already having over 800 employees in their books, the larger percentage of the new hires will serve in operations as opposed to research. The US office can hold 350 more people and therefore Seattle Genetics will add 100 new employees in the US while 20 will be employed in the Switzerland office. After hiring about 500 people in the last five years, an average of 100 people annually, there is no doubt the company has been growing rapidly. This year Seattle Genetics is on track to maintain that trend by hiring more than 120 people.

The company puts Seattle on the map and underlines it as a center for cancer research. The master plan by Dr. Seigall includes rolling out 12 new cancer therapy drugs.

According to Dr. Siegall, the results of the drug will largely affect the company. Adcetris, a ‘frontline’ treatment for lymphoma has generated $226 million in revenues in the US and Canada alone. The predicted revenues in 2016 will range between $255 million and $275 million after partnering with a pharmaceutical company that will sell the drug in other parts of the world.

Norka Luque Brings Forth the New Wave of Latino Music

Latino music and the musicians that rise to the top come in waves. In the 80s it was Gloria Estefan that was lighting up the charts with the Miami Sound Machine. In the 90s it was time for stars like Ricky Martin to take the stage. He would be joined by a great influx of Latin artists like Jennifer Lopez, Daddy Yankee and Shakira. This would set the scene for the majority of Latina hit makers that would continue to show up on the music scene. All of these artists have set the scene for musicians like Norka Luque. She is one of the best right now, but there is something she has that many other artists do not have. Norka is an artist from Venezuelan descent.

There was another star in the 90s that stood out. This was Mexican superstar Selena. The thing that made Selena a big hit was her rise in Mexico. She was just about to get to the point of being an international superstar before she passed. Everyone in Mexico knew her, but she was just starting to hit the American airwaves. This is where Norka Luque is right now. People in Venezuela know exactly who she is. In America, however, she is just starting to make tracks and blaze her trail. This is good because, like Selena, Norka has the ability to put her native land on the map. Mexicans had their own music that was dominant in Mexico, but there were no true crossover artists.

The same thing was true for Shakira before the brought the sound of Colombia to the United States. Colombians had their own sound. They did not, however, have anyone before – or since – Shakira that had such a strong American presence.

All that she has to do is stay on track with the producer that helped Gloria Estefan bring the Cuban sound to the United States in the 80s. This is what is so great about the music that Norka is producing right now. She already had a road map designed by other people like Gloria, Shakira and Selena. Norka Luque already had a hit on her hands.
