Keith Mann, a Thesaurus of Compassion

I had to look up the word, vivisection. I did not know the meaning of the word; frankly, it should never have entered into existence. It is a terrible word, but the actual meaning is far worse. I came across the word used in an interview; Claudette Vaughan is an Animal Liberation Front reporter, and she had a Q&A with Keith Mann.


The two had a somber talk, and an individual has to be serious in discussing difficult topics. One can relate to this by the. Oz Dr Show, for example Dr. Oz explains serious medical concerns in a matter-of-fact kind of way. Dr. Oz gives no apologies, and does not compromise the issue; he doesn’t play-down to the audience. In the same vein Keith Mann does not jeopardize the animal rights movement by speaking anecdotally. He speaks candidly and factually. Keith Mann is an exceptionally intelligent and enlightened man. He is not average, and he does not have a humdrum life. Imaginable, Keith’s life looks more like a sine wave, than the horizon, but no matter the case, he regrets nothing. His attitude is upbeat and positive. He knows he’s saved lives, and he’s put a footprint on the earth defining him in terms of compassion, rather than cruelty. Moreover, he has made a name for himself, one to be proud of. Keith Mann is an author, and also an advocate for education and a philanthropist. He runs a successful business in New York called Dynamics Search Partners, where he is the premier hedge fund recruiter. The commitment to achievement excelled him to surpass 15 years of success where he is renowned for being the best staffing and hiring Director. Dynamics Search Partners dawned into existence challenging Keith to grow into a world leader. Keith foresaw a rapidly expanding hedge fund industry aptly awaiting a comrade to take the helm. Dedicated with both heart and compassion he is now a warrior in the world of business, but his roots are solidly planted in the belief that animals are inhabitants of the world, and they have the right to exist securely without unimaginable suffering, synonym with vivisection.

Jennifer Walden Returns To Austin For Her Practice

As a native of Austin,Texas , Jennifer Walden is used to the city’s unique culture and customs. After completing her education in Texas she moved to New York City where she practiced her aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital. She eventually became Program Director of the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Aesthetic Surgery Fellowship after her skill as a cosmetic surgeon proved she understood the ins and outs of her specialty. Feeling homesick Dr.Walden returned to her hometown of Austin to start up her medical practice there.


 As one of the 24 best cosmetic surgeons in the country Dr.Walden’s name carries considerable clout. She has emerged as a leader in the cosmetic surgery world and has even made some success as one of the few women to serve on the board of directors for the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Society. As a woman born, raised, and educated in the Austin area it’s simply her most comfortable habitat. Her decision to move back to Austin was motivated by the arrival of her twin sons Rex and Houston. The twins were the product of IVF(in vitro fertilization) as Walden could not find a man in her life she wanted to marry. She wanted her sons to grow up surrounded by family and the culture she herself grew up around in Texas.


 Jennifer Walden’s long and storied career as a cosmetic surgeon stands out not only for her expertise, but for her willingness to go the extra mile whenever necessary. She quickly rose to the top of her field and entered positions where she would be able to prove her talent for leadership. When Dr.Walden practices medicine she does so with the intention shifting the paradigm of cosmetic surgery. Nothing less should be expect of one of America’s 24 greatest cosmetic surgeons.

Seattle Genetics Increase with Interest Investors

Seattle Genetics announced they would be increasing their stock offering from 480 million to 552 million by exercising its over-allotment option. There has been a huge amount of interest from investors. The money will be used to grow the drug product line, grow their main drug, and increase the people and company structure. His goal is to hire about 100 people per year over a five year span. The total employee count will be 1,300 by 2020.

To help with the expected growth, Seattle Genetics is looking for other spaces in the Canyon Park Area. He feels the company is already “busting at the seams” with people and very little space. Seattle Genetics is Puget Sound’s longest standing biotech firm, even thought it has not generated revenue. In the second quarter of the year, they posted a loss of 47.5 million dollars.

Clay Siegall said that building is their main concern. If profitability was their concern, then that is what they would be working towards. Their goal is to build their drug pipeline and their research. They know that once the drug product line and Adcetris is improved, the company will turn a profit. The company’s stock went up 4%.

Seattle Genetics is a biotech company focused on developing drugs for cancer and other hard to treat diseases. Their antibody treatments, ADCETRIS, is proving to be effective with far less side effects than chemotherapy. Their mission is to treat the patient with compassion and care. Clay Siegall co-founded it in 1998 and is currently the company’s President, CEO, and Chairman of the Board.
