He is focused on helping scale the environment and provide tools and direction in support of the Operations team efforts. What role do you play on the Operations team?

The bill now being pushed by the neocons and AIPAC could destroy the most promising developments in a decade.

The 1 percent have long had smartphones from Porsche and Vertu to quench their high-end thirst, but when it comes to dual-SIM handsets, the elite have had to settle for something a little more ordinary. For those in need, Gresso created Azimuth, the first dual-SIM luxury handset. Starting at $2,000, the phone is made of titanium, with both the keys and logo crafted out of 18K or white gold.
