Adam Milstein Is A Successful Entrepreneur Who Loves Israel

Adam Milstein is an Israeli-American activist, real estate investor, leader in his community, and a philanthropist who is a native of Israel. He graduated from the Technion in 1978, and as soon as he arrived in the United States, he got to work on an MBA and earned it at USC. After this, he became a real estate agent working in Commercial Real Estate and eventually became a Managing Partner at Hager Pacific Properties. His idea to join up with Hager came from the fact that he realized that his talents and skills would be underutilized and he would be underpaid working in some of the other positions that recruiters at his college were offering. This motivated him to work as a Real Estate Commercial broker and then eventually go into business for himself as a real estate investor.

Adam Milstein is the chair for national expansion, the National Chairman, and a co-founder of the Israeli-American Council. His wife, Gila, and himself also co-founded Sifriyat Pijama B’America, which is an organization that offers free books in Hebrew on a monthly basis. The organization teaches over 15,000 Israeli-Jewish-American families in the U.S.A. Jewish values. Adam Milstein also serves on the boards of the American Israel Public Affairs Committee (AIPAC) National Council, Stand By Me, Birthright Israel, Hasbara Fellowships, StandWithUs, Jewish Funders Network, and the Israel on Campus Coalition. Adam Milstein and his wife, Gila, also started the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation in 2000, which helps to educate young professional Jews and students who are Jewish about their roots, their special connection with Israel, and to offer them knowledge that supports the State of Israel and its people.

Adam Milstein was once asked what one thing would he do again and again as an entrepreneur to be successful. He commented that the best thing an entrepreneur can do is to understand an issue for themselves. Instead of relying on other people, get your hands dirty and work on the solution yourself. He also promotes not following the status quo by worrying about hitting goals. He has, personally, found goals to be extremely limiting and simply focuses his efforts on always doing the best job he can.

Michael Lacey’s Legacy as a Professor of Mathematics

Michael Lacey’s journey to prosperity in becoming a renowned mathematician began when he was an undergraduate at the University of Texas, Austin. Aiming higher for his career development, he did not down his studying tools.

He went ahead and enrolled as a Ph.D. student at the University of Illinois. At this institution, Walter Philipp worked as his mentor and this was back in 1987.

Surprisingly, Michael Lacey’s thesis was on probability – an area that he has greatly made a contribution to in the field of mathematics. Most notably, he was able to solve the iterated logarithm whose main area of application includes empirical traits of probability functions.

Moreover, the iterated logarithm is also a great choice for mathematicians who solve problems that involve showing the variance of a random walk. Among other topics that Michael Lacey works on, he has special interests in the ergodic theory.  Learn more about Michael Lacey: https://www.genealogy.math.ndsu.nodak.edu/id.php?id=62509 and https://www.math.gatech.edu/people/michael-lacey

After proving to be one of the best mathematicians around, Michael Lacey got a chance to be an assistant professor so as to guide other students.

Apart from Louisiana State University, he has guided thousands of students in Indiana University as well as the University of North Carolina. In his endeavors to sharpen his knowledge and serve others, he received a National Science Foundation Postdoctoral Fellowship.

At the same time, he initiated a comprehensive study of the bilinear Hilbert transform after teaming with Christoph Thiele. Their efforts did not go unseen as they ended up getting awarded the Salem Prize. Read more: Michael Lacey | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey |Math Alliance

Since Michael Lacey is a professional mathematician who has specialized in teaching at the university level, his teaching experience exceeds 3 decades. In addition to the institutions where he works as a professor throughout the learning periods, he travels overseas to other institutions where the hold short-term positions.

Besides being an engaging mathematics teacher, he inspires students through talks and the fruits of his talks are evident since he made the number of students in STEM majors to rise.

Michael Lacey does not take pride for being a high-profile mathematician. Instead, he takes this an opportunity to help others. His contacts are openly displayed on his math alliance profile to enhance accessibility by students and other individuals who might want to book an appointment.
