Adam Bremen, Co-Founder of Keto Krisps, is an entrepreneur who has cerebral palsy and had to use an electric wheelchair his whole life for mobility.  Adam has always focused on the positives; what he CAN do vs. what he can’t. Despite this, in early 2017 he realized he just wasn’t happy with his weight and how sluggish he was feeling. At that time he weighed 230 pounds, he wasn’t exercising, and  didn’t know what to do. However, a challenge he came across early on was finding something to snack on in-between meals. He searched, but wasn’t satisfied with what he  found; nothing tasted good!
This is when he realized there was a real need for a GREAT tasting Keto bar and started working on the creation of Keto Krisp: a bar that keeps you in a state of Ketosis and tastes AWESOME! It took some time to find the right ingredient profile that would check all the boxes to keep you in a state of Ketosis – and also appeal to people who do not follow the Keto diet – but They finally did it!  Go to his website at https://www.keto-krisp.com

Dr. Edward Holland – Director of Cornea Services at Cincinnati Eye Institute and Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati.

Dr. Holland discusses findings of a new Alcon survey that show how many people don’t realize the emotional and lifestyle impact of cataracts, and how treatment could help bring life back into focus. And treatment options that can tackle cataracts and other vision conditions, like astigmatism, at the same time.

Did you know that 24 million people are living with cataracts and, if you live long enough, you will likely have it too? Cataracts can impact more than just vision, they can also affect your emotions and lifestyle. And the latest treatment options that can tackle cataracts and other vision conditions, like astigmatism, at the same time.

Dr. Holland is the Director of Cornea Services at Cincinnati Eye Institute and Professor of Ophthalmology at the University of Cincinnati. He’s a graduate of Loyola-Stritch School of Medicine in Chicago, the University of Minnesota and the University of Iowa. He completed a second fellowship in ocular immunology at the National Eye Institute (NIH).

Jack Kosakowski, President and CEO, Junior Achievement, he discusses the career preferences of teens based on a new survey.

A new Junior Achievement (JA)/Ernst & Young survey of 13-17 year olds shows that a whopping 91% of teens between the ages of 13 and 17 know what they want to be when they grow up. However, career preferences remain clearly drawn along gender lines—more than one-third of the boys are interested in careers in STEM and half the girls are hoping to focus on the arts and healthcare.

“While it’s encouraging to see that today’s teens are giving a great deal of thought to their career aspirations, it’s disappointing to see that girls’ interest in STEM careers continues to lag significantly behind boys’ interest,” said Jack E. Kosakowski, president and CEO of JA. He noted that based on the survey results, JA will be placing greater emphasis on getting STEM professionals to volunteer for classes.
