OSI Group Acquires Former Tyson Foods Processing Plant

In 2016, the OSI Group bought a Chicago-based processing plant from Tyson Foods for $7.4 million. In November 2015, Tyson Foods on bnpmedia.com had already announced that it planned to shut down its processing facility in Chicago leading to the retrenchment of 480 workers. However, by June 2016, the plant’s new owner (OSI Group) retained at least 250 employees.

Caroline Ahn, the spokeswoman for Tyson Foods, said that the company was glad that the new plant owners would absorb a huge number of its former employees on Crunchbase. On the other hand, OSI’s spokesperson, Alison Kovaleski, said that the exact number of people to be employed at the plant was not yet clear. She added that presently, she did not have any final plans concerning the facility since OSI discloses little about its operations.

On its official website, OSI revealed that the new facility was instrumental in its business growth strategy and that it had the infrastructure needed to support future expansion. OSI is always keen to meet the high expectations and evolving needs of its global customers. Kevin Scott, a senior OSI executive VP for North America said that the group was excited to add the Chicago plant to its broad manufacturing network.

The History of the Kabbalah Centre

Since 1922, Kabbalah has been providing insight into the divine secrets of the universe through its extensive educational programs. Rav Yehuda Ashlag was the first master kabbalist who modernized these ancient teachings, making these teachings accessible so that students could apply the teachings to their own lives.

When Rav Ashlag was no longer able to teach, he passed his leadership role down to Rav Yehuda Tzvi Brandwein, who then passed it on to Rav Berg, who founded The Kabbalah Centre (then known as The National Research Institute of Kabbalah) in 1965. Since 1984, the flagship Kabbalah Centre has been located in Los Angeles, California.

Now the Kabbalah Centre exists in over fifty locations across the world, spreading its teachings of divine wisdom internationally. The history of this center is perhaps almost as fascinating as the teachings itself.

Rav Phillip Berg was born into an orthodox Jewish neighborhood in Brooklyn, New York in 1929. He became a certified rabbi in 1951. Shortly thereafter, he married his first wife, Rivka Brandwein, whose uncle would become his Kabbalah mentor. He met Rav Brandwein in 1964 in Israel, and upon learning the teachings of Kabbalah, he became a devoted kabbalist with a strong desire to share these teachings with the world.

In the mid-1960’s, Rav Berg founded the National Institute for Research of Kabbalah in new York, and due to his incredible understanding of Kabbalah, Rav Brandwein passed his leadership onto Rav Berg.

Soon after, Rav Berg married his second wife, Karen, and the two taught their unversally-accessible form of Kabbalah through the 1970s. They published many books on the subject, and began teaching out of a converted Queens, New York home. The movement quickly gained many followers, first throughout the United States, and then internationally.

Eventually, Rav Berg and his wife settled in Los Angeles, making their new main Kabbalah Centre residence in the city. Throughout the 1980’s and 90’s, the couple established several other Kabbalah centres across the world due to the growth of movement. They traveled the world extensively, working closely with local communities to spread the wisdom they possessed to others.

In 2004, Rav Berg passed away, and today his wife is the director of the Kabbalah Centre. She and her son continue to teach Kabbalah to the world, and Karen continues to publish successful books on the subject. Due to the outreach Karen and her late husband have accomplished, the future of the Kabbalah Centre will thrive for generations to come.

Why AHBE filed a lawsuit against AIG

The New Hampshire Insurance Company (AIG), has a lot on its plate after the former ownership of Atlanta Hawks Basketball (AHBE), filed a lawsuit against it. This is after AIG seemed to have breached some terms of their contract when settling claims with the former general manager, Danny Ferry.

AHBE, which Bruce Levenson was part of, insisted that the lawsuit wasn’t meant to involve the current ownership of the NBA franchise. This claim was backed up by the spokesman of the current ownership.

Apart from breach of contract, AHBE, through their legal representatives, also sued AIG for insurance bad faith. This is because, according to AHBE, AIG did not respond to the claims, even after AHBE issued the insurance company with notice prior to the sale of the franchise to Anthony Ressler.

Apart from the expected repercussions that AIG may face, AHBE also wants the insurance company to pay an additional 50% penalty. The penalty is set to cater for the unpaid losses, and the funds used to hire attorneys. AIG has since remained silent on this matter, not replying to any email sent to them concerning the matter.

Some know Bruce Levenson for his philanthropic work. One of his well-known philanthropic work is the “I Have a Dream Foundation”, in which he served as the president. He has also been involved in many other philanthropic activities. Mr. Bruce holds a Bachelor degree in Arts. He graduated from Washington University.

 

Fabletics Makes inroads in the Fashion Industry with Smart Marketing

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is making inroads in the e-commerce fashion market to stake its rightful claim, in a move that has placed it on direct path with Amazon. According to Forbes Magazine article published on November 2016, Fabletics is a fast growing activewear currently valued at $250 million, while Amazon controls 20% of e-commerce fashion market. Industry insiders attribute the record breaking growth of Fabletics to a number of factors, including effective use of a subscription mechanic that encourages brand loyalty, target marketing, subscription membership and service convenience. The technique has worked for Fabletics because highly valued brands are always identified by the quality of goods or service offered and price. To make its marketing strategy work efficiently, Fabletics has also deployed additional elements.

 

These include last-mile service, element of gamification, customer experience, exclusive design and brand recognition. The other strategy that is keenly being followed by Fabletics is positioning the company along the lines of successful entities like Apple and Warby Parker. The company has realized this target by opening up several brick and mortar stores in Illinois, California, Florida, and Hawaii and other places. Fabletics currently operates 16 physical stores. According to the company General Manager, Greg Throgmartin, the other secret to Fabletics success lies in its foresighted strategy to create a modern, re-imagined version of high value brand from the onset. Through this strategy, the fashion brand has effectively roped in its membership model to offer personalized service by selling trendy fashion at half the price offered by competitors.

 

With regards to the stores, Fabletics follows a three-prong approach that encourages reverse showrooming, smart use of online data and a marketing approach that focuses on accessibility, people and culture. Fabletics has indeed turned around how reverse showrooming is conducted to its advantage; unlike most competitors who have taken heat by having people visit their websites and buy elsewhere. For Fabletics reverse showrooming strategy, the most important thing is making the browsing experience positive by building lasting relationships. The move has seen many subscribing members visit the store to make purchases. The other bit of the strategy involves submitting the articles related to the items customers are interested in into their shopping carts, whether they chose to conduct their shopping in the store or elsewhere.
