The Immense Contribution of Dr. Avi Weisfogel to the Dental World and To Sleep-Disorders

Sleep apnea has ravaged the lives of a countless number of people worldwide. While researching for a cure, it became evident that there was indeed a strong degree of correlation between sleep apnea and conditions like diabetes, cardiovascular diseases, obesity and even strokes. Therefore, finding a remedy for the lack of sleep would consequently result in a cure for the related medical issues as well.


Rethinking Strategy


Dr. Avi is among the leading researchers and voices in this particular realm. His works are responsible for the discovery of numerous techniques and treatments. It is now well-known that there is indeed a correlation between oral hygiene and sleep. Dentists are now more involved in sleep apnea than at any other time in all recorded history.


The medical experts are forced to go back to the drawing back to rethink strategy. The remedies which used to work in the past cease being effective, and new approaches have to be developed. One of the most recently introduced mechanical treatments for sleep apnea is the THN Sleep Therapy developed by ImThera Medical. The device is approved by the Food and Drug Administration for use in clinical experiments.


FDA Approval


New age treatments for this condition are smaller in size and inconspicuous. They are easier to use, and the implant devices often work quietly in the background. A majority of the inventions available today act by keeping the upper airway channels open. They relax the muscles in the upper airways, and this induces sleep.


The FDA issued a go-ahead and a green light to innovations targeting the stimulating the upper airways in 2014. Dr. Avi Weisfogel considers the new solutions as a win-win scenario. Here’s why: Doctors help to find a definitive cure for sleep apnea, and they also make some money on the side in the process.


About Dr. Avi Weisfogel


Together with two other dentists, they founded the Dental Sleep Masters in April 2004. The clinic based in South Orange, New Jersey was mostly concerned with the research and development of new means and avenues of combating sleep apnea. Before cofounding Dental Sleep Masters, Avi was a principal lecturer and owner of the Owner Unlimited Sleep Patient in Old Bridge, New Jersey. Dr.Avi is a devoted father and husband who loves skiing and sports.

One-hundred gigabits of Laidlaw and Principals—Matthew Eitner and James Ahern Wrongs

An epidemic does plague the United States legal system today, and it’s getting worse. First, most people do not know how to use the legal system or what it actually is; when one is faced with a legal crisis, the first thing that comes to mind is to hire an attorney or law firm. And here lies the problem; can we trust the legal process when we know nothing of its operation? Consequently, among the fifty states, each state has its own and different legal design. Individual state courts are separate from federal courts.

By general scale, the legal system and its process are clandestine, hidden, and foreign to most people’s understanding. So how do we know when an assertion of false and misleading proxy materials has been perpetrated by Laidlaw and its Principals, Matthew Eitner and James Ahern?

Relmada Therapeutics hired Laidlaw—an investment bank, as Relmada’s financial adviser. Laidlaw’s main business is in capital markets.

Relmada Therapeutics filed an amended complaint in the federal court. The complaint filed in U.S. District Court for the District of Nevada was based on the above mentioned breach. Prior to the amended complaint, Relmada had filed a temporary restraining order, and associate injunction against Laidlaw for dissemination of false material. Relmada’s board found it necessary to write letters to their stockholders explaining the situation, so was it obvious that each stockholder understands the legal implication of the breach, and the fiduciary duty owed to Relmada by Laidlaw? Did the stockholders understand the legal arguments behind the amended complaint?

It’s assumable everyone acknowledges a controversy; but jurisdiction, and complicated legal theory places Relmada Therapeutics’ claim in federal court. Furthermore, I will bet that there is case law, and legal documents filed with the court that amounts to over one-hundred gigabits of data. How much of that would be hard-copy? My guess maybe, about 36-inch-height of legal folders piled on top of each other. In conclusion, I would question, does it take this much effort to prove a wrong?

George Soros Not Black Lives Matter’s Bank

There has a been a long-standing rumor ever since the inception of the Black Lives Matter movement. This rumor theorizes that the movement was created by people working for liberal billionaire George Soros and that he himself was funding the entire movement. Right-wingers that hold this belief think this way because Soros has been a longstanding supporter of Hillary Clinton and has even helped her raise money in the past for her campaign. The Black Lives Matter has been known to interrupt speeches by presidential hopefuls Bernie Sanders and Jeb Bush in the past year. The movement has also been in the news in recent days protesting more killings of black men by policemen after being stopped for relatively harmless crimes.

Kelly Riddel is an investigative reporter for the Washington Post. She has said that Soros has used his Open Society Foundation to funnel money through different left-wing charities and get the money to the Black Lives Matter movement.

Ken Zimmerman is the U.S. director of the Open Society foundation. He has stated that the rumors alleging that George Soros funded Black Lives Matter is unfounded. The $33 million dollar comes from a portion of the Open Society Foundation’s charitable donations that go to social justice campaigns. A lot of this money was earmarked for the fight to stop the war on drugs. Zimmerman stands by his numbers that prove that George Soros couldn’t have possibly funded the Black Lives Matter movement in the United States.

Black Lives Matter is also far too splintered and neutralized to be funded by a single entity. It is a completely grass roots organization thats leadership is different from one community to the next. There is no leader that can divvy out the money or a headquarters for the organization at It is a completely grassroots paradigm that is effected through peaceful protests, online blogs, and Facebook discussions. The hashtag is often trending on different social media sites because of the steam that the Black Lives Matter movement has gained due to the recent killings. This type of operation is almost impossible to be run or funded by just a few people, let along George Soros by himself.

Lawsuit for Nutrimost Imitators

A growing number of people are hearing about Nutrimost. A growing number of people are also learning more about the system because of its record of success. Many people are trying this system, and they are losing a lot of weight in a short amount of time. At the same time, they are also fighting off any other conditions that happen to be with the excess weight that they have put on. This is one of the reasons that Nutrimost is gaining a lot of momentun. However, there is an issue that they have had to face recently. One of the imitators have tried to cash in on the success of Nutrimost.

There is one company that is rivaling Nutrimost. This company is called Healthy Living, and it is promoting a diet called the “Can’t Lose” diet. However, their way of promoting the diet was merely taking a video produced and crafted by Nutrimost and just making minor edits to get rid of some references to Nutrimost. For instance, the scenes that show Nutrimost in the original video have been slightly edited to replace the Nutrimost logo with “Can’t Lose”. Fortunately, Nutrimost has caught up with a company and issued a lawsuit as well as a cease and desist letter for Healthy Living.

When it comes to a successful formula, there will always be imitators that will try to plagiarize in the hopes of profiting from the campaign. However, this is not likely to work because in cases like this, the rival company is going to be caught in the act, and they will have to give up on the act. It is better to do the work like Nutrimost has done and make one’s own success. Nutrimost is very successful because the professionals have done a lot of research in order to find out what works and what doesn’t.

ClassDojo Allows Parents to Become More Engaged with New Tool

The popular classroom app, ClassDojo, has recently announced that they are launching a tool with their app called Student Stories. This new tool will allow students to access their portfolios and add pictures and videos to them easily. To make this process even easier for the student, ClassDojo will not require the student to remember log-ins or passwords. Instead, the student will be able to scan a QR code that is unique to their class. Student Stories will allow the students to have more of a voice in their work, as well as involve their parents directly in what they are learning. Their teachers will need to review what the students added to their Student Stories before they are sent to the parents. The teachers will be able to post in the Student Stories section on the app as well.

ClassDojo is a resource that allows the teachers to connect with both their students and the parents outside of the classroom. It is a digital app that creates a community where parents are able to follow along with what their children are doing and learning in their classroom. Created by Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary, ClassDojo allows the students to take photos or submits snaps of what they are working on in the class to show to their parents. In return, teachers are able to share their class schedule with the parents as well so that parents can become more involved in the development of the child’s daily school life.

Founded in 2011, Class Dojo is now being used by over 85,000 schools across the United States. All types of schools, including public, private, and charter schools are using the app and most users are grades kindergarten through 8th. The app may hold more use in the future for students as well. It has been suggested by Hemant Taneja, the General Catalyst Managing Director for ClassDojo, that the educational app could see some potential growth. That growth could include a social media platform, custom lessons or study guides for parents at home, and a transaction feature where parents could pay for things such as field trips or lunches.
