Located in Costa Mesa, California Orange Coast College is the third largest college in Orange County, based on population size. The college offers a variety of two-year associate of art and science degrees, lower-division classes (which are transferable to other colleges and universities), as well as certificates of achievement. The college currently enrolls 24,000 students.

Men’s teams include baseball, basketball, crew, cross country and football to name a few. Women’s teams include basketball, cheerleading/dance, cross country, golf, beach volley and soccer to name a few.

Starting June 28th, a rare prize other than a sports trophy, will be gracing the campus of Orange Coast College. A rare flower called the corpse flower will be on display at the school’s administration building on 2701 Fairview Road from 10 am-6 pm. Once the flower blooms, visitors will be allowed to stay and view the flower until 10 pm.

The corpse flower is named for it’s scent which is said to smell like a human corpse. The plant has been named “Little Dougie” and has been at the college for over ten years. “Little” Dougie is a massive plant, weighing in at thirty pounds and around five feet tall. Despite the smell, the plant produces a spectacular magenta bloom with a fleshy spike in the center. The bloom is so beautiful that in 2014 over 1,000 visitors came to Orange Coast College to get a view of “Little John,” an 11-year-old corpse flower housed by the college.

One can only imagine the crowds “Little Dougie” will draw. The spectacle has been long awaited by horticulturalists at the college, as corpse flowers take about a decade to make their first bloom. When visiting the flower, donations of $3.00 are much appreciated, and will go directly to the college’s horticulture scholarship program.

Betsy DeVos – Setting Her Sights on Success for all Children

Betsy DeVos was chosen as Secretary of Education amid much controversy. Critics claimed that DeVos had no experience in education; they claimed that she was nothing more than a rich philanthropist. Had those same critics actually looked over Mrs. DeVos’ body of work – in education – they would see that she has done more than enough to prepare herself for a role as a successful Secretary of Education. She truly has the welfare and success of children in mind.

Betsy and Dick DeVos Saw A Need

Betsy and Dick DeVos were active parents in their children’s school. Wanting nothing but the best for their children, they became interested in the Potter’s House Christian School, where they noticed many low-income parents scrimping and saving to send their children to a school with a safe, exciting learning environment. This spurred the couple to create a foundation that helped provide scholarships so that low-income families could send their children to the school of their choice. This also influenced Betsy’s ideas regarding school choice. Betsy would go on to serve as chairperson for other charities that support school choice.


Betsy’s Involvement in Politics

While critics said Betsy DeVos had no political experience, a little research proves that this could not be further from the truth. Two charities Mrs. DeVos worked with, Children First America and the American Education Reform Council, worked to promote vouchers and tax credits to enable parents to afford to send their children to the school of their choice. Mrs. DeVos was directly involved in the passage of Michigan’s first charter school bill in 1993, and they worked to change the state constitution to allow tax-credit scholarships or vouchers. While this was not successful, this didn’t stop Mrs. DeVos. She started the Great Lakes Education Project while also chairing the Michigan Republican Party. This new project sought to promote the incorporation of charter schools statewide. Upon the advice of friends, she decided that all the nation’s children could benefit from charter schools. Eventually, Mrs. DeVos would be the chairwoman of the American Federation for Children. Mrs. DeVos has seen success in Florida with major gains in Louisiana and Indiana.

Hope for Education – Hope for All

Because of the hard work Mr. and Mrs. DeVos have put into the nation’s children, over one million children now attend the school their family chose for them. Mr. and Mrs. DeVos actually opened their own charter school, and they have first-hand experience with the process. Betsy continues to serve as a board member of the Foundation for Excellence and mentors children through the Kids Hope USA program. Visit to know more about Betsy.

Yes, Betsy DeVos was a perfect choice for Secretary of Education. She brings over twenty years of experience to education reform. We all agree that America’s educational system is broken; Betsy and Dick DeVos have pioneered educational reform in Michigan. They continue to work so that all American children have the best education possible.

Mikhail Blagosklonny on Anti-Aging Drugs

Many people believe that aging is brought about by consistent molecular damage with no means of prevention. Mikhail Blagosklonny who is a renowned scientist focusing on the study of aging and cancer gave a different account of this belief about aging. In the article, rejuvenating immunity aging is explained through hyperfunction theory. The theory holds that aging is simply a constant growth that is caused by signaling pathways which include Target of Rapamycin (TOR). The TOR models envisage that the rapamycin or any other rapalog has the capability to prevent diseases and treat aging in humans. Apparently so as to experience the full benefit from the rapamycin and other rapalogs, one needs to take the right doses and follow a regular schedule. Every theory faces acceptance, and some criticism and hyperfunction theory was not exceptional. However, in 2008, it was envisaged that those who opposed the theory by then, will take the TOR model for granted and this prediction came to happen.

A study was carried out on one of rapamycin analogs, Evirolimus (RAD001) and it was held that the analog is capable of improving immunity to the aging people. These were sensational news which said that the Novartis who were researching on ‘Fountain of Youth’ Drug might have found the drug that could help to delay the effects of an aging human being and also enhance their health. Nir Barzilai summarized the report saying that the research sets a standard stage to begin using drugs to target aging so as to improve every aspect of aging. He adds that the research is a turning point for many scientists. Visit ResearchGate to keep up to date with Mikhail’s latest work.

Looking into the history of rapamycin, it was in the year 2006 when Rapamune or Sirolimus which is a form of rapamycin, was approved to be used for clinical purposes. The drug was available, and apart from being believed to heal diseases such as cancer, autoimmunity, metabolic disorders and cardiovascular diseases, it was proven to heal diseases related to aging such as Alzheimer and osteoporosis. Rapamycin was expected to be rampantly used as an anti-aging drug to delay senescence and prevent illnesses as well. The drug is also recommended to be taken by transplant patients for some time so as to enhance their health. It is believed that rapamycin is capable of changing immunity of aging person from ‘aged-type’ to ‘infant type’ because instead of suppressing immunity, it eradicates hyper-immunity.

End Citizens United is Dedicated to Combating Big Money in the U.S. Political Landscape

In 2015, a political action committee committed to financing various campaign reforms in the United States of America entered the political arena. According to Richard Carbo, the political communications director, this group was planning to donate over ten million towards supporting Democrats. End Citizens United officially launched its bid to be on the forefront of political actions in 2016. The organization took to the streets after raising over $2 million from small donors. Throughout 2016, the group’s primary objective was raising $30 million towards the general elections. Apart from being able to raise huge donations towards the campaign, the ultimate achievement of the group was passing a constitutional amendment that would trigger the reversal of the Supreme Court’s decision that was approved in 2010. In that year, the decision to personalize the political action committee led to more numbers in the field of dark political money where the wealthy controlled all political situations.


2016 Elections


Driven by the force to raise money and drive out big money usage in the political landscape, the End Citizens United managed to collect more than $4 million in the first three months of the current year, 2017. The PAC is dedicated to coming up with $35 million to support the Congress elections that will be conducted in mid-2018. Given that in 2016 the group managed to raise $25 million towards the elections, the latter amount would be significant in 2018. According to Tiffany Muller, the president, as well as executive director of End Citizens United, more than 90,000 individuals, have since registered as members of the team for the first time. In the 2017 contributions, more than 40,000 people have made their first contribution. With the group’s main agenda being conducting fair and just elections by electing finance reform champions, End Citizens is on the right track towards the 2018 elections.




A few weeks into the 2016 elections, End Citizens United initiated the mobilization of donors to contribute towards Jon Ossoff’s election. The Democratic candidate who hails from Georgia is a first-time candidate. He surprised the entire campaign team by his $4 million contributions. He is looking forward to replacing Tom Prince, the elected secretary of health and human services. According to Muller, Ossoff is better placed for the bid.


 End Citizens United


End Citizens United was established in 2015 when the Supreme Court ruled against its reforms. Since then it has been an active political participant that incorporates corporate donations for elections. The primary objective of this team is to support political actions in the fair and just means. Founded by grassroots donors, the PAC is committed to transforming the political landscape of America to a better background. The group is inclined towards setting up a reasonable financial port to support its candidates.


Whitney Wolfe Emerges Victoriously With Bumble App

Whitney Wolfe has become someone that is capable of giving people a better social media experience. She has done her best to build a company that is able to connect people as friends or as potential soul mates. She has also done something that can help those that are looking for a chance to establish network connections.

What Whitney Wolfe has managed to start her company called Bumble and branch out to develop this company as a social media entity that has other platforms like Bumble BFF and Bumble Bizz.

In doing this it is obvious that Whitney Wolfe has become a leader in an industry we are there have been a lot of people that do not look like her that were previously in the lead. Whitney Wolfe is a young female that is under the age of 30. In the dating app industry this is almost unheard of as a person in a leadership role. It is true that Whitney Wolfe helped start another dating app company that became very popular, but there are few females in the world of technology when it comes to building dating apps. This is one of the reasons that Whitney Wolfe was so passionate about the app that she created. She wanted to be able to give women a voice because she knew that they did not have one when it came to dating apps.

Whitney Wolfe realized there was a lot of potential for her to grow. In order to do this she believed that she would have to separate herself from the competition. She knew in order for her app to work that she would have to create something that was different and that is why she chose to divide the Bumble company that she started in three ways. The original Bumble app concept focused on dating, but she would also branch out into a platform where people could connect with other business professionals similar to the way people connected with LinkedIn. Whitney Wolfe also devised a way for people to connect as friends through the Bumble BFF app.
