Enterprise Technology Expert and Promotions Leader to Implement Powerful New Integrated Marketing Approach SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - May 04, 2017) - The Starr Conspiracy, a strategic marketing and advertising firm specializing in human capital management companies, proudly announces the appointment of widely respected industry thought leader Jonathan Goodman as chief of its namesake Intelligence Unit. In his new role, Goodman will lead the unit's growth, profitability, service innovation, and client delivery. He will steer the agency into its next phase of service delivery -- from an emphasis on single-unit offerings to an integrated marketing approach that includes strategy, message, brand, and promotion. "I am honored to pass the reins to Jonathan. During his tenure, he has become an integral part of our leadership team and clients ask for him by name," said Steve Smith, Starr Conspiracy partner and former chief of The Starr Conspiracy Intelligence Unit. "Our future is bright with Jonathan at the helm. His transformative leadership and unparalleled industry expertise make him distinctly qualified for this role." Smith will continue to head the agency's San Francisco office, focusing on longtime Bay Area client relationships and serving a growing demand for The Starr Conspiracy's creative and promotional services with startups. Jonathan's expertise in enterprise software and HCM technology marketing spans nearly two decades. Formerly managing director of the research, publishing, and consultancy arm of the agency, he is a thought leader who is highly respected and sought after for his deep knowledge in the HCM technology space. Jonathan works with clients to co-create across the entire spectrum of market positioning, messaging, product strategy, thought leadership, branding, and promotions. Recently, he was named to the inaugural #Engagement101 by the Employee Engagement Awards, alongside such luminaries as Mark Zuckerberg, founder of Facebook and Sir Richard Branson, founder of the Virgin Group. "We launched the Intelligence Unit in 2014 as a sub-brand of The Starr Conspiracy. We did such a good job at branding that our world-class creative and promotions work fell out of the spotlight," Goodman said. "We are a great research organization, and we're building off that to showcase how marketing, advertising, and earned media can seamlessly work together to create a powerful delivery model. This, I believe, is the B2B agency of the future." Goodman has spent his career working for visionary company founders, redefining businesses, and developing new categories. His career trajectory began in the sales ranks of Dell where he built a record of consistently overachieving multimillion-dollar quarterly sales quotas in the U.S. small-business market and the Australia/New Zealand midmarket. Goodman, a behind-the-scenes advisor to some of the most well-respected HCM brands, earned a B.A. in Philosophy from Southwestern University in Georgetown, Texas, a nationally recognized liberal arts university. The Starr Conspiracy embraces the humanity in business to build brands that have emotional resonance. More than a global business-to-business marketing agency, we're a movement. We're changing the way technology companies view themselves, their customers, and the world. Unlike conventional agencies, we fuse advertising, technology, and advisory services in completely new ways -- ways that defy categorization and challenge the old-school agency structure.

Annual Review of Pharmacology and Toxicology | Year: 2011
We develop the proposal in this review that schizophrenia is a syndrome made up of component symptom complexes, each with distinctive clinical correlates, pathophysiology, and selective treatments. Psychosis is the necessary component of the syndrome; it has a young-adult onset and is sensitive to current antipsychotic drugs. Cognitive dysfunction often precedes psychosis onset, does not present an episodic course, and is poorly responsive to antipsychotic drugs. Treatments for cognition are being developed largely on the basis of animal pharmacology. Drugs for component symptom complexes will theoretically be coadministered to independent symptomatic end points. Animal models, some with genetic characteristics, can be more easily and directly developed to match an individual component than to match an illness definition as broad as schizophrenia. © 2011 by Annual Reviews.

Journal of the American Academy of Nurse Practitioners | Year: 2012
Purpose: To examine a case of nonalcoholic fatty liver disease (NAFLD) and review the incidence, pathophysiology, appropriate diagnostic procedures and imaging, clinical considerations, and treatment options. Data sources: Findings from the history, physical examination, and diagnostic testing of a 39-year-old man with elevated liver enzymes presenting to the hepatology clinic; a search of evidence-based literature in the PubMed and CINAHL database with the terms "fatty liver,""nonalcoholic fatty liver disease," and "nonalcoholic steatohepatitis." Conclusions: NAFLD is the deposition of fat in the liver that can progress to nonalcoholic steatohepatitis, resulting in fibrosis and cirrhosis. The exact pathophysiology is unknown, but risk factors can include those criteria associated with metabolic syndrome. NAFLD is a diagnosis of exclusion and can lead to serious health consequences if it is not identified and interventions are not implemented promptly. Treatment options remain limited but currently focus on weight loss, exercise, and diet. Implication for practice: The clinician must include the spectrum of NAFLD in the differential diagnosis for any patient with elevated liver enzymes. The key actions for diagnosing NAFLD are identifying risk factors and ordering appropriate testing for confirmation. These considerations will lead to early diagnosis and implementation of treatment interventions. © 2012 The Author(s) Journal compilation © 2012 American Academy of Nurse Practitioners.

Nature Reviews Neuroscience | Year: 2010
Discoveries in fruit flies have greatly contributed to our understanding of neuroscience. The use of an unparalleled wealth of tools, many of which originated between 1910-1960, has enabled milestone discoveries in nervous system development and function. Such findings have triggered and guided many research efforts in vertebrate neuroscience. After 100 years, fruit flies continue to be the choice model system for many neuroscientists. The combinational use of powerful research tools will ensure that this model organism will continue to lead to key discoveries that will impact vertebrate neuroscience. © 2010 Macmillan Publishers Limited.
