Adam Milstein continues to put his heart and soul into his heritage – that of the diaspora Jews. His most recent article on the subject was published last month, and is entitled, “Diaspora Jews Will Rise To Meet Our Challenges With Israel In Our Hearts.” In this article, he reflects on where the Jewish race has come from and on the stellar leadership they have had along the way. He also speculates who will take the torch. But in reflecting on past leadership, he knows that it will happen, and he cites many of the greatest past examples.
His heritage echoes of the superior leadership of David Ben-Gurion, who was Israel’s first prime minister; Chaim Weizmann of the World Zionist organization; Golda Meir, the first female prime minister of Israel; and Henrietta Szold, who was the founder of the Hadassah movement. Adam Milstein also revels in the fantastic tales of Mordechai Anielewicz, who boldly fought against Nazis in the Warsaw Uprising. Col. Mickey Marcus took his tough upbringing in Brooklyn and translated it into an illustrious military career in World War II and a career as one of the first generals in Israel immediately thereafter.
Even though we are well into the 21st century, Adam Milstein knows that the Jewish Nation still has its share of threats and problems. This is why he hopes individuals will continue to step up to the plate, to fight against anti-israel movement such as the boycott, divestment, and sanctions (BDS) campaign, which has followers throughout the world. The individuals involved in this movement are taking coordinated steps to separate the Jewish Family – the very fabric of the nation of Israel – from their heritage entirely. If they are successful, the very foundation of the nation of Israel will be gone completely.
Adam Milstein knows that Jewish leaders will rise up to confront these challenges. The reason is because he sees the situation on people involved and activism on behalf of the state of Israel constantly. He knows that they are continually getting energized by their heritage, and he also knows that it is the job of him and others in the elder Jewish generation to give them a platform in order to lead. He is confident that this will happen.
Many businesses talk about giving back to the community. Now one energy company is going a step further by launching their own philanthropic program to help those in need. That company, Stream Energy is proud to launch the Stream Cares program.
So what exactly is the Stream Cares program? This philanthropic effort was designed to help local communities through a variety of fundraising events. Created by Stream Energy, Stream Cares has helped raise thousands of dollars through various fundraising efforts.
One of the most recent efforts includes a fundraising effort at the company’s recent Ignition 2016 convention. It was at this convention that employees for Stream Energy were able to raise over $3,000. The funds came from t-shirt sales as well as direct donations. And all of the proceeds went to help members of the military as well as members of military families. Efforts like this are one of many programs created by Stream Cares.
In addition to creating charity programs, Stream Cares also recently worked with other charitable foundations such as The American Red Cross Services To The Armed Forces, Operation Once In A Lifetime, and Cell Phones For Soldiers. By supporting a number of foundations, Stream Cares is able to spread its support far and wide.
In addition to the above mentioned charitable foundations, Stream Cares has also worked with a number of other charitable foundations in the past. Among the charities previously supported by Stream Cares includes Habitat For Humanity, Texas Tornado Benefit, Girls, Inc., and Hope Supply Co.
Stream Energy is known as one of the leading suppliers of direct essential services to hundreds of thousands of customers around the United States. With over a decade of service, the company has generated over $7 billion dollars of revenue since the company’s inception. As the company continues to revolutionize the energy sector, Stream Energy will also continue to focus their effort on helping as many people as possible through Stream Cares.
The Brazilian government has signed an agreement with a consortium of private investors to boost basic sanitation throughout the country. The private investors were represented by the National Bank for Economic and Social Development and Trata Brasil. The latter is an organization that manages sanitation projects. The firm’s president Edison Carlos believes that the partnership will improve resource management, which was previously the main challenge facing sanitation projects.
The partnership mainly seeks to reduce waste levels. Prominent Brazilian infrastructural guru Felipe Montoro Jens points out that there needs to be a paradigm shift as far as basic sanitation concerned. At the moment, a whopping 90% of sanitation services is provided by the government with private firms accounting for a paltry 10%. The narrative needs to change by giving private firms a larger stake. Besides having the required manpower and machinery, the private sector has the financial muscle to provide sanitation services.
Felipe advices that the inclusion of private companies in waste management is long overdue. Nonetheless, there is need to create a good working relationship between the government and the private sector so that the two complement each other’s efforts. This is likely to be achieved if the recently-signed concession is anything to go by. BNDES is mandated with the role of financing the initiatives besides ensuring that each project is designed to address challenges facing communities living in each locality.
