OSI Group Acquiring Other Companies So That To Increase the Global Reaches

The one thing that OSI Group has been focusing on is that they will have foreign and domestic expansion for the past five years. From the 1970s when Sheldon Lavin joined the company, he has been the reason why the company has been focused on the global expansion. The recent purchase that OSI industry has been making will be of help in increasing their reach. In 2017, they made one purchase, and that is buying the former Tyson Foods plant. The space that the company has is 200,000 square feet, and the facility will offer the company with space that will help in increasing the production to cater to the customers in North American.

The reason for the purchase is that it will be of assistance in taking care of the demand that the company had because it was growing fast. The plant was designed in a way that it will take care of the poultry products but that would not limit OSI Group in producing different types of foods. The other thing that OSI Group purchased is Flagship Europe in 2016 December that will be of help the company is reaching the people of the United Kingdom and Europe. The recent move that was made is Flagship changed their name to Creative Foods Europe the name was so that it will best describe the capabilities that the company was offering.

The first time OSI Group started off as Otto & Sons that was in 1909. The first time it started, it was just a small shop that dealt with butcher and meat supply in the Suburbs of Chicago. The first time that the company got recognition was when they were chosen by McDonald’s to supply ground beef in the restaurant that was opened in Ray Kroc. While they were still named Otto & Sons in 1973, they opened a new plant that was located in West Chicago that would offer the services of being the supplier of beef to McDonald. In 1975, there was the change of names, and that’s when the company got the OSI Group name. At the end of the 1970s, the firm had expanded to parts like Germany and Utah as they still offered there services to McDonald. Learn More.

End Citizens United Fuels the Fire of Election Reform


The 2010 Supreme Court ruling in the Citizens United vs. Federal Elections Commission started a fire. They ruled, in a controversial 5 to 4 decision, that free speech could be applied to corporations. More specifically that there is no difference between individual and corporation. The fire of election reform that started with that decision still burns today, and out of the ashes came End Citizens United. End Citizens United is the political action committee devoted to overruling the Supreme Court decision, and butting big business out of politics. But exactly how do you overrule a Supreme Court decision?

The answer is legislation. End Citizens United advocates for reform candidates who do not accept endorsements from big business. The goal is put reform candidates in public office, basically saturate congress and the Senate with them. In this way reform legislation can be passed that restricts and regulates corporations ability to fund political campaigns. Visit opensecrets.org to learn more about End Citizens United.

The main fear many have is that a lack of restriction on business campaign funding, means that candidates will be bought, elections purchased, and legislation afforded to the victor. Many across the U.S. fear that such a situation renders votes obsolete. This is why End Citizens United uses grassroots funding to support candidates that will attempt to make a difference. But in order for that difference to occur many sitting politicians have to lose their seats, and legislation has to actually pass. Even if it a bill is written does not mean it will pass into a law. So the journey is a very long and arduous one.

In fact, End Citizens United has an even bigger hurdle before it. It’s end game is to actually have the first amendment amended. A huge tax for any group regardless of political stance. The amended portion would redefine free speech as belonging to a person not company. This is about the only way the initial Supreme Court decision can be overruled, and it represents quite the accomplishment. ECU is dedicated, however, and keeps the fight alive every election, pushing its agenda to the bitter end.

ClassDojo Provides Alternative Solution To Communication Issues In School

The educational system has pretty much remained the same since it first took place in our lives. The teacher, students and desks in one classroom format has not changed very much and neither have the solutions to the ever changing challenges that the school system faces. One such challenge is the communication between teachers and parents outside of the parent-teacher conference. The advancement in technology has been experiencing exponential growth, especially within the last twenty years.

Although technology has vastly improved, the classroom setting has not been getting much of an upgrade. The only way for teachers to get in contact with student’s parents is by phone or the once-in-a-while parent-teacher conference. Which many parents are not able to attend due to strict work schedules. The founders of ClassDojo had this in mind when engineering the solution to this long standing challenge.

Unlike many of the other educational technology companies that have attempted to make money by selling to the school system, the founders of ClassDojo actually took the time to listen to the input provided by the teachers, students and parents when conducting their research. The founders Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don had the intention of creating a free and easy-to-use app that would bring the teachers and parents closer together for the sake of the children.

The ClassDojo app has quickly become the most used communication platform in many school systems across the nation. The app has been very successful in creating a positive culture with people within the school system and outside of it as well. It has completed the difficult task of bringing comfort to concerned parents that had no way of knowing exactly what went on with their children while on school grounds. ClassDojo allows the children to upload their own experience to their portfolios along with pictures and videos so that they are not left without a voice.
