Sussex Healthcare, Senior Living Home

In it’s most recent account, Sussex Healthcare introduced its new CEO, Amanda Morgan-Taylor. Taylor has spent well over 30 years in healthcare leadership and hopes that her skills will be able to add to the facility’s history of excellence. Though Sussex Healthcare announced Taylor’s arrival towards the end of last year, she only officially joined the team in January 2018. However, the new CEO has already started making several plans with her management team–some even before she actually stepped into this role. In fact, she spent a significant amount of time learning all she could about this United Kingdom healthcare company, its culture and the needs of all of its residents.

Within a short amount of time, Amanda created an entirely new position so that she could better monitor and promote service improvement and compliance. When it comes to care, Sussex Healthcare is known for being holistic in its approach, and one of Taylor’s main priorities is to preserve this mission while searching for new and creative ways to enrich the lives of residents.

In this way, she will be able to use the information so that she can enhance their plans as well as improve service policies.

Along with hiring a new CEO, Sussex Healthcare has also decided to employ new team members across the United Kingdom. Its chief priority is to offer care that is personalized care to each and every resident. The facility first opened its doors over three decades ago. It has a very strong commitment to caring for the mind, spirit and with each passing years, this desire continues to grow.

As of today, Sussex Healthcare has over 20 facilities. And it recently opened a gym that is considered to be state-of-the-art with personal trainers, underwater treadmills, as well as several other benefits. This facility has acquired several awards and distinctions. In fact, out of all of the independent nursing homes in the UK, it is the only that has dual accreditation. When it comes to choosing quality care for your loved ones, Sussex Healthcare should definitely be on your list of facilities to check out.

Whitney Wolfe’s Bumble Stands Up To Tinder’s Bullying

A new legal battle is brewing over copyright infringement issues between the dating app Tinder and its co-founder, Whitney Wolfe. Match Group, which owns Tinder, filed the court documents alleging that Wolfe’s new dating app, Bumble, too closely resembles Tinder. The complaint says that the appearance of the app, as well as the way in which it functions, is almost indistinguishable from Tinder.

Bumble Fires Back at Tinder
While Match Group may have gone straight to court with their complaint, Bumble is taking their response to the people. The dating app’s managers took out full page ads in two well-read publications, The New York Times and Dallas Morning News, to respond to the accusation.

In the ad, Bumble says that it has decided to “swipe left on Tinder’s attempted scare tactics, and on these endless games”. The remarks made in the ads refer to the falling out Whitney had with her Tinder co-founder and the issues that brought their partnership to an abrupt end.

The battle began in 2014, when Whitney Wolfe left the company. At the time, she also filed a sexual harassment lawsuit against Tinder co-founder Justin Mateen. The case never went to court, because Whitney Wolfe was offered a $1 million settlement. The sexual harassment suit was considered closed with that settlement and the former partners went their separate ways.

Later, Wolfe launched Bumble, a new dating app. As that app began to gain popularity, Match Group made several offers to by the business from Whitney, but she declined. In 2017, Match Group offered to pay her $450 million in exchange for ownership of Bumble, but that offer was also declined. While Match Group owns a number of dating apps, which includes Match.com, Plenty of Fish, and OK Cupid, Whitney Wolfe has declared that they will never own Bumble.

About Whitney Wolfe
Whitney Wolfe comes from Salt Lake City, Utah. Before launching her entrepreneurial career, she majored in international studies at Southern Methodist University. It was during this time that Ms. Wolfe launched her first successful business, which involved selling bamboo tote bags. The proceeds of those sales were donated to assist communities affected by the BP oil spill.

The project, which operated under the “Help Us Project” moniker, gained mass appeal, after Whitney Wolfe partnered with Patrick Aufdenkamp. As a celebrity hair stylist, Patrick marketed the bags to some of his popular clients. When stars like Rachel Zoe and Nicole Richie were seen with the bags, Wolfe’s business really took off. It was that success that ultimately led her to develop Tinder.

Dr. Saad Saad Shares How Important Education has Been in his Life

Dr. Saad Saad has finally retired after 47 long years in the medical industry in the United States. The man was not born here, but he definitely made America his home. Something about this country felt special to him. It was more than just the opportunities this country offered; it was the spirit of this country that made him feel welcomed.

He was actually born in Palestine in tumultuous times. Saad was just a boy when the region divided, and his family was forced to leave everything behind. His father was not home at the time, so they were not sure how he was going to find them but thankfully he did. He was part of a family of eight children, and his father had to figure out a way to provide for them, even after a drastic moment in time. It was his father’s education in petroleum machinery that helped him at this time. Learn more: https://about.me/ssaad/getstarted

This was a story that Saad told his own children, and he shares it now because he knows how powerful it is. It shows the importance of education and helped him nurture this in his own children who went on to have careers in medicine and the legal system. Saad is very proud of them and wants all children to try to better themselves through education, too. Saad revealed that his father made it a point to highlight how education allowed him to help his family stay afloat.

Two of his brothers were engineers when he was young. There was a moment when he thought that he would follow in their footsteps, but he suffered a heat stroke while he was out one hot summer day. At this point, he decided that whatever career he pursued, it had to keep him out of the heat. It did not take Saad long to figure out that his career would be in medicine. He went to Cairo University where he earned his degree and some of the best grades in his school, which is pretty impressive.

Dr. Saad moved around a bit after that from Egypt to England, but it was not until he arrived in America that he actually settled. It was here where he spent most of his career though he did take a number of trips to Jerusalem alongside Medical Missions. This organization traveled to areas like this one where children are in poverty to provide free health care. He was definitely proud to be a part of these expeditions. He hopes that people read about him and read this interview and discover how much education can do for a person because he wants to see the world improve.
