Social Media Workshops

raincoaster sees all, blogs all!

Look out! Here comes tomorrow!

By popular and unpopular demand, I and a loose association of similarly-minded social media ninja/pirate/cyborg/rockstars/high priests/high priestesses/completely stone cold sober priests and priestesses are putting on regular blogging and social media courses, both online and in person in Vancouver and Montreal.

For more details, you can check out my professional blog at raincoastermedia.com and to check how sketchy the legendary raincoaster is or is not, you can read my bio and public speaking schedule.

The actual workshops are listed on our Workshop page, and the schedule is up as a public Google Calendar which is listed in the sidebar on raincoastermedia.com as well.

Learn from the best! Well, learn from the most infamous, anyway! To get on the mailing list for courses, use the contact form below:

  4. LEGAL NOTICE OF DEFAMATION AND DMCA NOTICE.

    RE: THIS VIOLATION:
    http://raincoaster.tumblr.com/post/40825985279/sue-basko-trading-card

    FROM: SUSAN BASKO, JD. ESQ./ LAWYER FOR SELF. CONTACT: SUEBASKO@GMAIL.COM PHONE: 310-770-7413 MAIL: PO BOX 1694, H’WOOD, CA 90078

    It has come to my attention that you have posted reckless, vicious defamation called me a “Fake-Ass Lawyer.” This is defamation per se, as I am not only a licensed attorney, but an internationally-recognized attorney in my fields, a magna cum laude law graduate, and highly accomplished.

    Further, you have violated my Copyright by using my photo which is owned by me.

    You MUST delete this post and any other post that mentions my name, uses my photo, or mentions any of my work.

    I am absolutely APPALLED that you who are supposedly a professional, would engage in such extreme egregious, totally reckless defamation wholly without regard to facts.

    THIS MUST BE IMMEDIATELY REMOVED AND A SINCERE RETRACTION MUST BE POSTED. YOU MAY ALSO BE REQUIRED TO PAY DAMAGES WHICH ARE STATUTORY UNDER SUCH PER SE DEFAMATION.

    THIS IS AN UTTERLY SHOCKING VIOLATION OF ALL JOURNALISTIC ETHICS AND STANDARDS.

    SIGNED: SUSAN BASKO, Attorney at Law, California and Illinois, USA

  5. SEE DEFAMATION AND DMCA NOTICE ALREAD SENT. In addition please note I have an FBI complaint pending against those who have cyberstalked and harassed me by posting that I am a “fake lawyer” and other such non-stop harassment. I am absolutely shocked that a person such as you, who has been hired a few times as a writer, does not know the basics of defamation per se or of journalistic ethics. I worked extremely hard to become a lawyer, graduating at the top of my class and earning many honors, and at an older age. It is thoroughly shocking that you would commit such egregious defamation per se against me, and degrade me and violate my copyright by publishing my photo along with your disgusting, reckless violations of my dignity and rights. Signed: Susan Basko, Esq.

  6. That, my dear, is not a journalistic article. It is a satirical image created by the online group calling themselves “ninjas” and as such I believe it is protected speech. In any case, take it up with the creators.

  7. And I am amused that someone who claims to be a highly competent lawyer does not recognize the difference between a satirical trading card reblogged on Tumblr and an actual article.

  8. Also amusing, as I am going through past correspondence with Sue, and she tells me about having posted a photo of someone without permission, then later thinking better of it and blurring the pic.
    “I JUST POSTED HIS PIC BUT BLURRED HIS FACE. Yesterday I posted his pic without blurred face and then decided that was unwise of me.”

  9. And, almost a year ago exactly, she send me this out of the blue:

  10. All sounds great, especially if a needy not-quite-nerds do not reside in Yellowknife (catchy –wonder who named this city), Vancouver or Victoria. Drat. Very interesting your 2013 year in Blogging Stats. Hmn.

  14. 精准医疗又叫个性化医疗,是指以个人基因组信息为基础,结合蛋白质组,代谢组等相关内环境信息,为病人量身设计出最佳治疗方案,以期达到治疗效果最大化和副作用最小化的一门定制医疗模式。因此相较传统医疗,精准医疗具有针对性、高效性及预防性等特征。

    美国医学界在2011年首次提出了“精准医学”的概念,今年1月20日,奥巴马又在美国国情咨文中提出“精准医学计划”,希望精准医学可以引领一个医学新时代。10月8日,2015全球创新论坛纽约峰会在纽约穆迪总部大楼举办。乐土投资集团CEO刘如银在峰会上介绍了他的精准医疗生态圈的想法。

    刘如银介绍了乐土投资在美国的国际化实践,包括在美国的地产投资拓展,以及最新投资的医疗健康项目。乐土投资集团(CLIG)定位以硅谷的高科技投资为引擎,以科技医疗和互联网金融为两翼,链接最具价值的深科技健康项目,服务国际大健康和科技发展。

    美国财政预算计划在2016年拨付给美国国立卫生研究院(NIH)、美国食品药品监督管理局(FDA)、美国国家医疗信息技术协调办公室(ONC)等机构共2.15亿美元用于资助这方面的科学研究与创新发展。

    刘如银说:美国的精准医疗主要是围绕着基因组、蛋白组等方面的检测,也就是围绕分子生物学的特性,针对个体化的病理特征进行治疗。而我们所关注的不仅如此,更是系统化的,全过程、全要素、全局性的对医疗过程和临床实践进行优化。我们所指的精准医疗也是针对每一个病人的具体病情,正确选择并精确的应用适当的治疗方法。刘如银认为:精准医疗的最终目标是以最小化的医源性损害、最低化的医疗资源耗费去获得最大化的病患的效益,其前景不可限量。

    精准医疗要做到个性、高效及预防的关键在于筛查和诊断,因此基因测序等检测诊断技术的发展是关键。成本的下降让基因测序商业化市场的打开成为可能,基因测序技术的成熟和商用经过了多年的发展,1980 年自动测序仪出现,2001 年完成了人类基因组框架图标志着这一技术的成熟,2007 年二代基因测序技术大幅降低测序成本,使得这一技术应用出现可能,以走在前列的Illumina 公司为例,该公司自2007 年起把当时每个基因组的测序成本费用从1000万美元降到了当下的1000 美元, 根据Illumina 公司数据,全球NGS(二代基因测序)的应用市场规模预计为200 亿美元,药品研发和临床应用是增速最快的领域,增速超过15%,肿瘤诊断和个性化用药是最有应用前景的领域,市场规模120亿美元。乐土投资与Illumina以及新一代的基因检测公司Genalyte, Centrillion都有着合作关系。

    刘如银说:精准医疗作为医疗模式的革新对提高我国国民健康水平有重要意义,将在基因测序技术发展和国家政策的推动下迎来黄金发展期。精准治疗是下一个新兴朝阳行业,我们关注基因测序、肿瘤诊断及个性化用药等相关投资机会。

    全球创新论坛纽约峰会由全美华人金融协会(The Chinese Finance Association, TCFA) 主办。全美华人金融协会于一九九四年在美国成立。分布在世界各地的会员来自华尔街投行、基金、监管部门、和学术界,已成为联系中美金融界最重要的桥梁之一。协会定期举行学术年会。协会本部设在纽约,并在波士顿,华盛顿,旧金山,伦敦,香港,北京和上海等金融中心设有分会。

    原招商银行行长马蔚华,中信银行美国分行行长文兵,汉世纪投资管理有限公司合伙人吴皓,联合国南南合作办首席经济与投资专家杨庆宏等参加了本年度会议并发表了讲话。
