Many people today are using bottled water instead of tap water because they have realized it comes with many benefits to the body of the consumers. That is why the industry is growing immensely because of the growth in the size of the market every year. One may think that most of these water brands use the same approach when it comes to the packaging of their water and sourcing. However, when purchasing the water, you need to consider a reliable brand with a proven record. That will enable you to consume not only save water but one with several benefits in your body.
Waiakea Water Company is Hawaiian water that was launched a few years ago, and it has experienced steady growth because of the different approach it uses in the market. The founder of the company, Ryan Emmons is not only focused on making profits because he uses the principle of triple bottom line in running the company. The company focuses on this approach whereby it focuses on benefits, the planet, and people. The successful CEO was born in Santa Barbara, California. He grew in both Hawaii and California. The idea of Waiakea Water came to him when he was a freshman in the Marshall Business School.
With the help of a college known as Matt Meyer, he started the company which has today become a coveted organization. However, his friend went on to do other things, but he still serves on the board. The CEO got an opportunity that is rare as the leased the Hawaiian artesian for 99 years. They secured it by paying rent. They were privileged because this is a precious resource for the people of Hawaii. Since then the company has experienced exponential growth. It has established other manufacturing facilities because they want to support the company to achieve global demand.
One may think that Waiakea water is expensive because of the way it is manufactured and how it is healthy for the users. But this is not true. The Hawaiian volcanic water is affordable to consumers. Ryan Emmons focuses on ensuring the water is affordable to almost every consumer.

Clayton Hutson started out his career in the music industry in Nashville, Tennessee. He earned a bachelor of arts degree in theater design and then started to garner experience. His first stop was working as a sound engineer on some Billy Graham national tours. From there he broke into behind the scenes roles at rock concerts. He developed a wide range of marketable skills by working for others and also found the time to earn an MBA.
He now runs his own live entertainment business. Among the top musicians he has worked for are Guns N’ Roses, Pink, OneDirection, and Kid Rock. Some of his positions beyond being a sound engineer include being a monitor engineer, production manager, and stage manager. In 2017 he worked on OneRepublic’s “Honda Civic Tour” where he was responsible for running the automatic rigging system. This tour took him all over North America and Asia.
One key skill Clayton Hutson has developed is working with Computer Aided Design (CAD) software. He says that before arriving at a venue he has already modeled its dimensions. The reason for this is that a concert tour can have the most incredible equipment in the business but if you can’t fit it in the door then it’s really not going to do anyone any good.
In order to attract new clients to his business, he says that he makes sure every detail is accounted for. He also has a great reputation for being a hard worker who never shies away from putting in long hours. As Clayton Hutson has developed a solid reputation who is dedicated to his craft and profession he picks up a lot of new clients from referrals.
Before each show, he goes through his work several times in order to make sure it was absolutely done right. In his business mistakes can lead to injuries or worse. He says that if he were to ever commit a serious error his reputation would likely never recover from it. For this reason, he always puts safety first and makes sure that all of the equipment is organized in a sensible manner.
In order to keep his client’s satisfied Clayton Hutson says that he has to keep up with developments in the industry. While giant video screens are a mainstay of holding a concert he says that he likes it when artists focus on other things like eye-catching stunts and acrobatics.
It won’t come as a surprise to most people to hear that ADHD is one of the most prevalent conditions affecting the youth of today but just how should we go about treating this neurological disorder? Research on the condition began back in the mid-1970’s when a scientist known as J.F. Lubar began studying the effects of neurofeedback on patients with ADHD. His research turned up quite a bit of interesting information and now, many years later, scientists and research organizations are using his findings in conjunction with modern technology to develop the most effective treatment methods for patients who are suffering from ADHD.
One of the organizations is known as Neurocore and they are dedicated to ensuring they develop the best treatment methods for people who are suffering from ADHD. Their methods seem to be working rather well as over three-fourths of all the patients they’ve treated have experienced a significant reduction in symptoms and over half of them no longer meet the qualifications of a patient with ADHD. Using something known as Qeeg technology, they’ve been able to study the brainwaves of patients with this condition to try and determine the inherent cause of ADHD in order to better treat them.
In recent years, many scientists have done thorough research on the condition and found that it tends to be a hereditary trait passed on from generation to another. They’ve also found out that there are three different types of the condition. The first one is characterized by a lack of ability to keep focus. The second one is characterized by an inability to control one’s impulses and the last one is merely a combination of the first two subcategories. Especially considering ADHD can last well into adulthood, Neurocore understands the importance of attempting to treat the condition as effectively as possible. They’ve also found that the condition typically consists of an excessive number of theta waves whereas the beta waves are found to be rather lacking. So we wish them the best of luck in their future research and hope they are successful in finding a cure.
