Whitney Wolfe Creates A Dating App That Receives Overwhelming Praise

When Whitney Wolfe created the Bumble app she knew that there was a chance that this app would do well, but she wasn’t sure. She had already worked with another app called Tinder, and this has become one of the most successful dating apps in the world. It would be a tough challenge for her build an app that would be as successful Tinder.

When Whitney Wolfe co created the Tinder app it was with someone else. She had to consider the opinions of another person because she was not the sole owner of Tinder.

The creation of Bumble marked a new era for Whitney Wolfe. She was a young entrepreneur that was going out on her own to create an app where she was the one in charge. It was her opinion that would make the Bumble app what it was. She wasn’t in with a team of other Consultants that were putting this app in place. Instead, Whitney Wolfe was the one calling the shots. She wanted Bumble to be at least as successful as the former dating app.

The Bumble app would become a very successful app that would actually exceed expectations. This is what people would discover when they were trying to see if this company would emerge as a force among the other dating apps in the industry. Singles that were dating wanted to know how this app would stand up against Tinder and other dating apps. The only way they could find out was by its signing up and trying it out. For many this app was better than what they assumed it would be, and it has become the main app that many single men and women use. Whitney Wolfe is very pleased with the overwhelming amount of praise that this app has received.

Tempus to Partner with UChicago in Using Data to Better Cancer Treatment

The University of Chicago will team up with Tempus, an initiative from Groupon’s founder, Eric Lefkofsky, to enhance breast cancer treatment. Tempus, which is based in Chicago, announced that it would look into data from approximately 1,000 breast cancer cases. This will help provide useful information to help doctors and researchers identify patterns to assist in predicting patients’ response to treatment. This analysis is expected to help provide better treatment in the future.According to a statement by Dr. OlufunmilayoOlopade, a professor of medicine and human genetics at the University of Chicago, there is no significantly available data about breast cancer patient. This is unfortunate since breast cancer is “among the most common types of cancer.” As such, physicians make treatment decisions without the aid of reliable genetic information.

He applauded the idea to collaborate with Tempus, citing his support the initiatives pursuit for building the leading “clinically annotated molecular data set” for dealing with breast cancer. Tempus utilizes machine learning as well as genomic sequencing that helps physicians in making personalized and timely treatment.This is the most recent of Tempus’ partnerships in months. Others include Northwestern University’s Robert H. Lurie Comprehensive Cancer Center, Rush University Medical Center, Mayo Clinic, the University of Michigan, and Penn Medicine.You can also visit : http://www.lefkofsky.com/about/ to learn more.

Bloomberg said that Norman Pattiz is a radio giant. Not only has he worked in radio for decades, he recognized that this new form of on-demand listening, the podcast, would soar, so he decided to create PodcastOne in 2012. And of course it did. But long before that Pattiz was recognized for his ability to hone in on what people want or need to hear.

He was involved in so much of what has been broadcast on public radios for decades, remember radios? In 2000 he began serving on the Broadcasting Board of Governors of the United States of America through appointments by Presidents Clinton and Bush.

The Board administers foreign nonmilitary services such as Radio Free Europe, The Voice of America, Middle East Broadcasting and Radio Liberty, to name a few. Plus he conceived America’s Arabic language broadcasting which reaches over 40 million people.

According to Fortune, in 2009 Norman Pattiz became a National Hall of Fame inductee and was given the Giants of Broadcasting Award by the Library of American Broadcasting.

Pattiz says he’s “never had a bad job,” offers advice on growing a business to “be the first one in… and the last one out at night” and says he wouldn’t change anything about how he’s handled his career and businesses. He does have a history of making good choices. “Beyond The Darkness” is probably another one. Chris Jericho says he fully expects it to be “…a podcast network’s dream…or should I say nightmare!?”
