Video of SynDaver Labs – Shark Tank Don’t feel sorry for Sakezles, however. SynDaver is on track to make $10 million this year, he says, adding that the company has lined up investors who place an even higher valuation on the company than Herjavec did. Sakezles predicts SynDaver will expand from its current 100 employees to 500 within 3 years. “We’re growing like wildfire.”The company’s history traces back to the 1990s, when Sakezles, a graduate student at University of Florida, set out to evaluate a new endotracheal tube his lab had designed. The team couldn’t afford to test it on animals, so they bought an artificial trachea from an outside company. Sakezles recalls it as being little more than a plastic tube. “It was a pure piece of crap. I took one look and threw it in the circular file. I had to essentially build my own model.” So he and colleagues crafted a trachea from multiple polymers, realistically simulating cartilage rings, muscles, and a mucosal layer.After getting his Ph.D. in 1998, Sakezles eventually began consulting for medical device firms. He found they were interested in his experience building realistic models of tissues and organs. “The company grew out of that. It wasn’t a burst of lightning. It was a gradual thing. I never thought of it as a standalone business.”Sakezles did eventually write a business plan for a synthetic tissues company that he pitched to potential investors. He failed miserably, he says. “Everyone thought I was insane. I’m a terrible pitchman. I’m the scientist. I’m the tech guy.” But Sakezles was able to scramble together money from friends, family, and his own bank account to push ahead with the company.He started developing tissue analogs first, only later moving onto organs and then whole bodies. The company now markets some 100 artificial body parts made from materials that mimic the mechanical, thermal, and physicochemical properties of live tissue and can replace the use of animals or human cadavers. Medical device companies, medical schools interested in surgical training, and companies doing ballistic tests are just some of SynDaver’s customers. “I proved the naysayers wrong. There definitely is a market,” Sakezles says.And although he may not personally be a great salesman, his company’s artificial cadavers—the flagship model costs about $40,000—have been a boon for publicity. SynDaver’s products have popped up in many TV shows, including Grey’s Anatomy and MythBusters. Sakezles, who notes Shark Tank’s producers deftly edited his more than 2 hours with the investors panel into just a 10-minute segment, says he went on the show truly looking to land an investment partner. He specifically wanted Herjavec or Mark Cuban, another shark who specializes in technology. But he admits publicity for the company was also a major motivation. “From the exposure side, we knocked it out of the park,” Sakezles says. This story is a bonus online element for the package on science entrepreneurship that appears in the 12 June issue of Science.Last month, millions of people watching ABC’s prime-time television show Shark Tank learned what Christopher Sakezles says his wife already knew—that he can sweat a lot when nervous. Despite a perspiration-drenched presentation on 8 May in front of the show’s five celebrity investors—he ignored his wife’s suggestion to spray his face with antiperspirant—the polymer scientist landed the biggest deal in Shark Tank’s history. With a life-size synthetic cadaver as a prop, Sakezles persuaded technology entrepreneur Robert Herjavec to pay $3 million for a 25% stake in SynDaver Labs, a firm that Sakezles founded a decade ago to create realistic artificial tissues, organs, and whole bodies for surgical training and other purposes.But as fans of Shark Tank know well, not every deal struck on the show lasts once the cameras turn off. After Sakezles and Herjavec traded further information and initial terms, the partnership fell apart. One sticking point was obvious on the show, as the investors challenged Sakezles’s plan to invest SynDaver’s immediate profits back into the company for further product development. “They wanted to replace me as CEO and this is not something I will allow at this point,” Sakezles says.

Story Highlights Managing Director of the Housing Agency of Jamaica (HAJ), Gary Howell, says that the agency is ensuring that only deserving beneficiaries can access low-income homes.“We try to ensure that persons who are benefiting from these low-income housing solutions are first-time homeowners, so we primarily utilise persons with National Housing Trust (NHT) benefits. We know NHT has a stringent system, which ensures that once you obtain your benefit you cannot get another NHT mortgage,” he noted.“What we don’t want is a situation where because persons have the money they buy more than one of the units cash and then capitalise on it by later reselling it at a significant price. This results in persons who were really in need not getting the opportunity to purchase a unit at the initial price,” he pointed out.Qualified NHT contributors are eligible to apply for a loan to build, buy or repair/improve their home.Currently, an NHT contributor can be granted a maximum loan of $6.5 million.

Not only has Washington Redskins Daniel Snyder insisted he would not change the name of his NFL team, on Thursday the franchise formally appealed a ruling that stripped the team of trademark protection, the latest legal maneuver in the Redskins’ attempt to defend its name against those who consider it a racial slur.The team announced that it had filed its complaint in the U.S. District Court for the Eastern District of Virginia, and that it ”points out the many errors” in the decision by the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office.The office’s Trademark Trial and Appeal Board voted 2-1 on June 18 to cancel six uses of ”Redskins” trademarked from 1967 to 1990, saying the name is ”disparaging of Native Americans.””We believe that the Trademark Trial and Appeal Board ignored both federal case law and the weight of the evidence, and we look forward to having a federal court review this obviously flawed decision,” Redskins lawyer Bob Raskopf said in the team’s statement.The team had previously said it would appeal the ruling and had two months to do so. The trademark protection remains in place while the matter makes its way through the courts, a process that could take years. A similar ruling by the trademark board in 1999 was overturned on a technicality in 2003. Native Americans have been challenging the trademark since 1992.The Redskins say they will ask the court to consider ”serious constitutional issues,” including whether the ruling penalizes the team’s right of free speech and whether the team has been unfairly deprived of ”valuable and long-held intellectual property rights.”The group of five Native Americans challenging the name is equally confident.”This effort is doomed to fail,” said Amanda Blackhorse, the lead plaintiff. ”But if they want to prolong this litigation, which has already gone on for 22 years, I guess they have that prerogative.”The Redskins have been under sustained pressure to defend the name over the last 18 months, with major political, church and sports figures joining the debate and saying it should be changed.Team owner Snyder has vowed never to change the name, calling it a ”badge of honor.””If people wouldn’t dare call a Native American a ‘redskin’ because they know it is offensive, how can an NFL football team have this name?” Blackhorse said. ”We know that time is on our side for a change in the team’s name, and we are confident we will win once again at this stage of the litigation.”
Ohio State starting pitcher John Havird (23) throws in NCAA tournament game versus Louisville on June 4. Courtesy: OSU AthleticsThe Ohio State baseball team fell in a large, early hole and was unable to climb out as they lost 15-3 to the host, and No. 1 seeded, Louisville in the second round of the Louisville regional.After striking out the side on 11 pitches in the top of the first inning, sophomore starting pitcher Brendan McKay helped his own cause in the bottom half of the inning, driving a 1-2 pitch over the right field wall to give the Cardinals an early 2-0 advantage.In the third inning, the rain started pouring down in Louisville, and so did the runs. It was again McKay who sparked the offense as he delivered a RBI single to right with runners on first and second. After two doubles and a passed ball scored three more runs, senior first baseman Danny Rosenbaum mashed a two-run home run to deep left-center field to expand the lead to 8-0. That would end the night for Ohio State’s starter, senior left-hander John Havird. Two more runs off redshirt sophomore right-hander Austin Woodby would make it 10-0 Louisville before the third inning ended.From that point on, it was all Louisville. The Cardinals added three runs in the fourth inning off another home run from Rosenbaum and they plated an additional run in the fifth.The Buckeyes would eventually put themselves on the board. With a runner on first, senior pinch-hitter Daulton Mosbarger hit a homerun over the right field wall to cut the deficit to only 12. A run in the bottom of the eighth by Louisville and a run in the top of the ninth by Ohio State brought the final score to 15-3It was a brutal outing for Ohio State’s starting pitcher on the mound. John Havird entered the day with a 6-3 record and a 3.02 ERA, but ended the night with a loss and a 3.73 ERA. He failed to register an out in the third inning as he gave up six runs on a walk and five hits in the inning. Havird finished the night with two innings pitched, eight hits, eight runs (all earned), two walks and only one strikeout. He also surrendered two home runs in his two innings of work after only allowing two in his previous 92 innings.Louisville’s sophomore starting pitcher Brendan McKay, on the other hand, was extremely sharp both on the mound and at the dish. McKay delivered 5.2 scoreless innings before his outing was cut short by a 48 minute rain delay in the top of the sixth. He allowed only six baserunners off three hits and three walks. McKay struck out ten batters in the outing. At the plate, McKay was two for four with a home run, three runs batted in and two runs scoredFollowing the loss to the Cardinals, the Buckeyes will attempt to stave off elimination and keep their title hopes alive in a rematch against the Wright State Raiders on Sunday at noon.
Coming off three starts as a true freshman, sophomore outside linebacker Ryan Shazier enters his second season firmly entrenched as a starter on the Ohio State football team’s defense.Shazier is one of many young linebackers who will play for the Buckeyes this season. Along with middle linebacker Curtis Grant, Shazier is one of two starting sophomore linebackers, while four of the seven linebackers listed on Monday’s depth chart are freshmen.First-year coach Urban Meyer admitted that Shazier is “real young,” but he has high expectations for him.“I’m biased because I love the guy,” Meyer said. “His God-given skill level is really high, so our expectation level is an all-Big Ten type player, at some point. He has that skill level.”Shazier’s own expectations are even higher.“One of my goals since I was little was to be an All-American,” Shazier said. “I’m just going to work my butt off to be an All-American or one of the top linebackers in the nation, so I’m just going to keep working hard, being a leader and just try to do the best I can.”Shazier made an immediate impact last season once he cracked the starting lineup. He finished the year with 57 total tackles, five tackles for loss, two forced fumbles and a blocked punt. Meyer said his work ethic is a major factor in his success.“He gives everything he’s got,” Meyer said. “He’s so sincere about what he does.”Shazier said he recognizes that his team will be relying on him more than it did last year, and is ready for the added responsibility.“This year’s a lot different than last year,” Shazier said. “I have to be a leader a lot more than last year. I’m just working on my ability to try and be a lot better than I was, and work on my footwork, my technique and helping the young guys out a lot.”In addition to being a starting outside linebacker in the 4-3 defensive scheme, the Buckeyes’ base alignment, defensive coordinator Everett Withers said Shazier will also start in the team’s nickel defensive package, along with senior linebacker Etienne Sabino.Withers said the nickel package will be a very important aspect of the team’s defense this year.“I think we’ll be in (the nickel defense) a fair amount,” Withers said. “The offense, at times, dictates how much nickel you play.”In the base defense, Withers said Grant will be the “quarterback” and lead play-caller of the defense, but with Grant off the field in the nickel package, some of that responsibility might shift to Shazier.Shazier addressed the possibility of having to assume that leadership responsibility.“It’s going to be important for me to make a lot of play calls in the nickel and everything, but we also have Sabino, so he’s going to help me out,” Shazier said. “I feel that my role is going to be about the same (in the nickel) as it is in (the base defense). I’m just going to have (to) come in, help make tackles, help lead the defense and just stop the offense from scoring and stop them from gaining yards and getting the offense in great field position.”While Meyer inherited Shazier as a player on the roster when he was hired at OSU, Shazier had been on Meyer’s radar long before either became a Buckeye. Meyer recruited Shazier, a native of Plantation, Fla., while he was still the head coach at the University of Florida.“I’ve known him for several years now, because I recruited him when I was at Florida,” Meyer said. “You can’t help but like Ryan Shazier.”Shazier said that Meyer’s name was “legendary” while he was still a high school recruit in Florida, but playing for Meyer has opened up his eyes to a different side of the famous coach.“He’s intense when he’s recruiting you, but when it’s on the field, he’s another level, He doesn’t play around,” Shazier said. “He’s really serious, and I really like it about him, but he’s really intense and he’s really going to push us to the next level.”
Bournemouth boss Eddie Howe is happy with his team’s response after they beat Blackburn 3-2 in the Carabao Cup on Tuesday night.Eddie Howe made nine changes to his starting XI on Tuesday, following his team’s 4-0 drubbing at Burnley. And the Cherries responded well with a victory thanks to a late goal from Callum Wilson.“We desperately needed a performance tonight after the Burnley game, of course, we needed a reaction,” he said.“You feel better but still Burnley is not far away in my thoughts. That’s just how I am and until we put that right in the Premier League that will still be with me.”Eddie Howe pleased with attacking poise, but feels Wilson was too honest Stuart Heath – August 25, 2019 A.F.C Bournemouth manager Eddie Howe felt as though his striker Callum Wilson was too honest against Manchester City and may have won a penalty,…He added: “I’d say (tonight) 90 percent was positive. I thought we played some good football and then suddenly bang, bang, we concede two goals.“Only we could do that to ourselves. We shot ourselves in the foot twice, made some bad decisions and then it’s in the balance.“And then you’re thinking the lottery of a penalty shoot-out was going to be the outcome of the game and it should never have been in that position.“But credit the players again because we get ourselves in these positions and sometimes we get out of that hole we’re in because of our attitude, because of our spirit.”
One of the most controversial football figures over the past decade or so once against demonstrated his lucidity and audacity.After numerous sources reported that the Serie A heavyweights AC Milan consider a potential January swoop for Los Angeles Galaxy talisman Zlatan Ibrahimovic, former Sweden international reached out to the press with some statement.The United States-based news outlet, TMZ Sports, have broadcasted the words of the 37-year-old striker regarding the rumored interest of the Rossoneri.“There is always rumors. The whole world wants me. It’s okay.”It’s not the first time (and probably not the last) that the ex-Manchester United superstar came out with such a comment. Just a reminder – when Zlatan landed in Los Angeles, he welcomed the NBA bigwig LeBron James in “Zlatan way.”Serie A Betting: Match-day 3 Stuart Heath – September 14, 2019 Considering there is a number of perfect starts so early in the Serie A season, as well as a few surprisingly not-so perfect ones….Now LA has a God and a King!Zlatan welcomes @KingJames pic.twitter.com/4gYooOpURD— Zlatan Ibrahimović (@Ibra_official) July 2, 2018Although AC Milan sporting director Leonardo has recently stressed the 7-time Champions League winners won’t try to take Ibra back at the Stadio San Siro, anything could happen by January.
