From London To Iran, to New York, to Verizon and Juniper–That’s Shaygan Kheradpir

The world gets smaller every year, and one of the men responsible for making it more intimate is a man by the name of Shaygan Kheradpir. Born in London, Shaygan was actually raised in the country of Iran, before coming to the United States in order that he might obtain a vetted education. Kheradpir actually studied in America at a time that was exceptionally amenable for education. The college loan bubble had yet to balloon out of control, and Kheradpir was able to obtain cogent degrees that were well-engendered and not bogged down with a ubiquity of modern moralistic nonsense which is only tangentially related to any degree in the first place. No, when Shaygan Kheradpir went to Cornell University of New York, he found that institution at the top of its game, and gleaned all he could. Kheradpir obtained not only a Bachelor’s degree, but a Master’s degree and then a Doctorate from that prestigious institution.

Immediately upon graduation Kheradpir put his new knowledge to the test, and went after a lucrative job in the technology industry. He began working professionally in 1987, and continued rising through the development ranks until his company merged with several others, and Verizon blossomed from the interdiction. Soon Kheradpir had a team of over seven thousand individuals working at his beck and call to innovate as quickly and effectively as possible. Kheradpir’s innovations are myriad and seen everywhere in mobile markets. He was instrumental in the facilitation of automated systems, as well as call centers, customer service, and many other things.

Kheradpir understands that the end user is most important when technology applications are considered. What good is a product loved by every member of the innovation team, if no one buys it because user interface is downright impossible? Kheradpir understands there is a fundamental difference between the ideals of developers, and the needs of clients and customers. So he works to bridge this chasm via intelligent, skilled, experienced management. To that end, Kheradpir has recently become the CEO of Juniper Networks, and is currently working with a new team of individuals to streamline operations and increase value.

Immediately upon being hired by Juniper, Kheradpir got down to the business of examining their numbers. It is very important to know who is purchasing what, when they’re purchasing it, why they’re purchasing it, and how they’re purchasing it–the act of the purchase is a big part of the customer’s role in any Juniper Network.

It doesn’t merely take education to become a successful CEO. It takes experience, dedication, contacts, astute politicking, and a degree of wisdom as regards individuals within and without a given company. It makes sense that Shaygan Kheradpir has made the strides he has because all these qualities are inherent to his personality. With educated experience, he carefully studies a problem and finds a way to make a solution possible.

As the world changes, it’s good to know there are professional individuals who understand the reality out there, doing their best to bring the future to the present.

Omar Boraie – A Man With A Vision

Four decades ago Omar Boraie had a vision. He wanted to rebuild New Brunswick and turn it into a vibrant community people would be proud to be a part of. And while many thought his idea was crazy, he didn’t let that stop him. He pushed forward and now his vision has become a reality.

In 1972, when Omar and his crew first started working on this project, New Brunswick was a ghost town. While people would come into the city to work, they would immediately leave at the end of the day. After 4pm there was literally no one on the streets.

To get the ball rolling Omar started buying dilapidated buildings one after the other. By the time it was all said and done, he owned over 20 buildings including Albany Street Plaza Tower One.

After Tower One was renovated it provided the city with over 200,000 square feet of class A office space. By 2003 Tower Two, which is located right next to Tower One, was completed and provided even more office space.

While this gave the city a huge boost, Omar knew he needed to provide top of the line residential units if he really wanted to take things to the next level. So that’s exactly what he did.

He took one of the old dilapidated buildings on One Spring Street and turned it into 121 residential units along with office space, retail space, a parking garage and functional outdoor space.

It was a New York Style high rise building right in the center of downtown New Brunswick. It was such a hit in the community that is old out in 2 months.

Its safe to say what Omar Boraie has been able to do in New Brunswick is nothing short of amazing. Though it took 10 years, his dream of revitalizing New Brunswick has now come to pass.

And the best part is he’s not done yet! Just imagine what New Brunswick will look like in another 10 years. I think its safe to say Omar has turned all of us into believers.

Iran Wants Sanctions Lifted The Same Day They Sign Nuke Deal

President Hassan Rouhani Said “We Will Not Sign Any Deal Unless All Sanctions Are Lifted On The Same Day”

The United States and the other five countries involved in the nuclear agreement with Iran have a decision to make. Iran wants all sanctions lifted the day the agreement is signed. The U.S. previously said the sanctions would be lifted in phases. Iran economy is suffering from the sanctions, and they have had enough. They want the agreement to be a win-win for all involved, and the only way that can happen is the immediate removal of all sanctions at the signing table.

President Hassan Rouhani said, The Iranian nation will come out on top and be the victor in the negotiations, but the United States may have a different opinion. The U.S. never agreed to lifting sanctions on the same day. The U.S. has repeatedly said sanctions will be lifted after international monitors verify Iran’s compliance with the agreement. If Iran doesn’t conform, the sanctions will resume.

Jaime Garcia Dias (twitter.com) has learned that supreme leader Ayatollah Ali Khamenei said the agreement may not be signed by the June deadline because the United States made statements about the agreement that were false. Khamenei also said the talks so far don’t guarantee an agreement, and the negotiations may end at any time.
