Sheldon Lavin had a vision for Otto & Sons when he helped secure financing. The small, local business opened a large processing plant solely to process hamburger patties for McDonald’s. As McDonald’s grew so did Otto & Sons. The company quickly became OSI Group, a leader in processing proteins, vegetable items, sauces and baked goods.
Originally Lavin was only a consultant to the company. In 1975 he became a partner in the company, but it was not until the 1980s that he gained 50% ownership when he bought out an original partner. Lavin saw OSI Group going beyond Illinois, but also beyond the United States.
Over the years Sheldon Lavin grew OSI Group into a multi-million dollar, international business. The growth is just one of the many reasons that Lavin received the Global Visionary Award from India’s World Academy. This award honors visionaries who work hard to turn their ideas into reality. It is intended to show other visionaries that goals can be reached with persistence and hard work. The recipient is intended to be a role model to give hope and drive to other visionaries.

Today there’s 70 processing plants in 17 countries. Despite the large growth, one thing remains- Lavin’s belief that OSI Group is a family. Since OSI Group began as a small company, Lavin intends for the company’s philosophy to stay that way.
Though all companies have rules and processes, Lavin believes that the company does not run only on the ideas of the top rung of the ladder, but on the ideas of everyone. He believes in an open door policy to all. There no doubt that Lavin respects and appreciates everyone who makes OSI Group a success. Around the office he also goes simply by “Sheldon.”
In over 40 years Lavin went from a financial manager to CEO of a multi-million dollar company. He is proof that you can get what you want if you work hard enough.
When Doe Deere launched her line of cosmetic products, the old adage that necessity is the mother of invention proved to be true. Ms. Deere’s products came about as a direct result of her own need to express her moods. Today, her Lime Crime line of cosmetics has become synonymous with freedom of expression. In fact, the company’s original packaging depicted a unicorn as a way of symbolizing the brave spirit of those who would choose to use the line’s innovative colors. The company still produces a line of Unicorn lipsticks, which are still placed inside their classic lavender colored tube with a holographic unicorn silhouette on the front.
Taking a Bold Step Forward
The Unicorn lipsticks available from Lime Crime are in keeping with the company’s philosophy of creativity. These products are available in bold shades that are loaded with pigment. They go on smooth and dry to a soft dazzling shade. The color line for the Unicorn lipsticks ranges from a muted berry shade to a pink nude. The company also produces a line of Velvetine lip colors, which come in styles that have either a matte or metallic finish. The matte lip colors place a vibrant shade on the lips that remains true to its color all day. This line boasts a huge array of expressive shades that include bright red, plum, fuchsia, canary yellow, lime green, ice blue and orange.
The sparkling Unicorn lipsticks are not the only products from Lime Crime that enhance lips with a touch of shimmer. Their line of Metallic Velvetines dazzle the eye with their frosted appearance. These products come in shades of pink, lavender, yellow and red. The company also has a line of Perlee lip colors designed to enhance lips with a light metallic appearance. When it comes to freedom of expression the company’s line of Diamond Crusher lip colors reigns supreme. Designed to recreate the glitter effect of real diamond chips these colors capture the true essence of a fantasy world. The colors available in this line range from intoxicating indigo blue Black Unicorn shade to the sensuous ice pink Acid Fairy shade. https://www.urbanoutfitters.com/brands/lime-crime
On his recent blog posts, Clay Siegall focussed on a variety of issues across the society. From social policies to climate change and ecosystem. With most of the articles linked to National Public Radio (NPR), all that appears on Clay’s blog posts are nerve striking both emotionally and intellectually.
Most notably is the contemporary issue of the direction taken by the USA President to pull out the climate change pact earlier signed by his predecessor. Another article on the same issue shows how climate change affects coffee farmers in a country in Africa, Uganda. On the other end, a highly emotional article about terminal patients who are given a choice to end their lives by the aid of a doctor shows how this aid to die requires more than just a law. Then there is an article about Alan Alda; an actor, New York Times best-selling author and longtime host at PBS. He has spent hours trying to harmonize the gap within different sectors of science and academics. In his new book, he tries to simply how people understand science.

There is a high level of appreciation for Eva Moskowitz and her Success Academy. This has become one of the most interesting charter school systems in New York. Now that Betsy DeVos is the Secretary of Education it is very likely that people will be hearing more about Charter Schools like Success Academy.
There is a lot of debate about charter schools like Success Academy, but in New York the charter school system is getting abundant accolades. Much of this has to do with the fact that this type of school system has been able to prove that grades are getting better for students. A large percentage of the students in New York that are benefiting from school such as Success Academy are African American students.
There are also Latinos and Hispanics that are part of the education system that is in place with Success Academy. A tremendous part of the success comes from the large amount of parent involvement. This is a random selection process for students that become part of the student body at Success Academy, but this is what makes it so valuable. When people become acquainted with Success Academy they realize that their students are going to have to work hard. There is no magic formula involved in getting better grades. There is a staff of passionate teachers and the coursework that is involved is much more in-depth than what the average public school would provide, but it comes down primarily to the environment.
Parents should be aware that this is one of the better school programs for children in New York. It has been an institution that is helping students realize their highest potential. Eva feels that she is truly making a difference in the lives of students.
Parents are eager to get their children into these schools because they know that it can equate to higher SAT and ACT scores. They know that the higher scores on these standardized tests can become springboards for scholarships, and that can erase lots of the financial strain of graduating from college with a insurmountable debt to repay.

The real estate and commercial properties industry has undergone radical changes over the years. Long gone are the days when geopolitical locations acted as trade barriers. With globalization, disparate geopolitical locations have turned into business opportunities as they present unique niche markets.

Properties with unique contemporary designs have not only be praised and feted by industry players; they are the hotcakes of the property markets where luxury is an important selling point.

The OSI Group might not be one of those brands that rolls off your tongue, yet. It takes time for all of the top 100 food companies to carve out their niche. Gradually, OSI Industries is expanding with purchases of Baho, Tyson and Flagship Europe facilities. Its purchase of Tyson shows how OSI is filling in the gaps in food production.
“Purchasing Former Tyson Food Plant”
Did you know that OSI Industries has more than 60 facilities in 16 countries? In 2016, it won the prestigious Globe of Honour from the British Safety Council. When Tyson announced its plans to shut down one of its Chicago food processing plants in 2016, OSI swooped in and purchased the facility for $7.4 million, according to the Cook County Recorder of Deeds.
The 4201 South Ashland Avenue 200,000-square-foot Chicago facility fits in nicely with nearby OSI Group facilities. Together, these could “”provide the infrastructure to support continued business growth,” said OSI spokeswoman Alison Kovaleski. OSI North America senior executive vice president Kevin Scott stated in a June 8, 2016 announcement – “We are excited to have this facility as part of the broader OSI manufacturing network.”
“Synergies of Tyson Purchase”
Saving jobs is just one of the many advantages of the OSI Group purchase of the former Tyson Foods plant. There were hundreds of experienced food processing employees who were able to transition to the Aurora-based OSI Industries. This enabled them to continue to support their family, create a strong community and share their wealth of work experience in making high-quality foods for the world.
The names may change, but the requirement of providing high-quality food products remains the same. OSI Group makes a variety of meat products for food services and retail brands. Remember how to spell high-quality food: O – S – I.

Anthony Petrello and his wife Cynthia have committed $7 million to the hospital’s Neurological Research Institute, to ensure that children with neurological and developmental conditions can reach their full potential.
Their daughter Carena was born barely past the gestational age of viability and drastically underweight, and was diagnosed with periventricular leukomalacia, a common defect in premature children due to inadequate oxygenation or blood flow to the brain. Consequentially, she developed cerebral palsy, and other developmental disorders. Per Texas Children’s Hospital website, the Petrollo’s investigated pediatric research institutions around the country and abroad, and found that none of them were conducting research that would make any difference in these children’s lives. They have committed the $5 million upfront, and $2 million to come, for the Neurological institute to ensure that this research is done, not only for Carena, but for all children like her.
