Yanni Hufnagel: Top Jewish-American Assistant Coach

Yanni Hufnagel, a Scarsdale, New York native, is quickly becoming the NBA’s most renowned Jewish-American coach. Growing up in Scarsdale, Yanni loved playing basketball. Unfortunately, he was cut from his high school varsity basketball team. Since he couldn’t play on the team anymore, he began commentating the games on a local access TV channel.

He went on to attend Pennsylvania State University. He was only there for a year and played on the school’s lacrosse team. Eventually, he transferred to Cornell University where he received a Bachelor’s degree in Industrial and Labor Relations. His love of sports still burning passionately inside him, he completed an internship with the New Jersey Nets.

After his internship, Yanni got the opportunity to attend the University of Oklahoma. There, he served as a graduate assistant coach for the school’s men’s basketball team. His assistant coach skills earned him some credit for helping develop Blake Griffin. While at Oklahoma, he continued to further his education. He earned a Master’s degree in Adult and Higher Education.

Now, a 30-year-old man, Yanni is getting some attention because of Jewish background. There aren’t many Jewish-American athletes, but there are lots of Jewish-American team leaders. Yanni’s current job, assistant basketball coach at Harvard, has been earning a lot of special attention. Thanks to Yanni’s skill, the Crimson team has just won its first Ivy League championship. The team also produced Jeremy Lin, a phenomenal basketball player.

The Jewish Coaches Association lists about 30 Division-1 coaches. Not many are widely known, but Yanni Hufnagel and Josh Pastner, a coach at the University of Memphis, are at the top of the list. Their talents have led them to one of the biggest Jewish showdowns ever.

Banding Together

Wengie offers several hacks that you can use with rubber bands. It might not seem like the rubber band would have much use in life, but it’s ideal for keeping papers together or any other simple task that you do at home.


When you’re using chopsticks, slip a rubber band around one end so that they stay together while you’re eating. This is an idea to try if you’ve never used them before or if you simply aren’t sure how to use them to begin with. Another way to use rubber bands is with glasses that tend to fall off the face. Add rubber bands to the end of the glasses so that they stay in place behind the ears.


If you’re painting, then attach a rubber band across the can to wipe off the paint from the brush. This will keep the paint from getting everywhere instead of using a roller or the side of the can. When you watch a sad movie, you might find that you cry with the events that take place. Attach and empty tissue holder beside one that is full so that you have a trash can for the tissues that you have used instead of tossing them on the ouch. While you’re drinking, you can wrap a rubber band around the neck of the bottle and a straw. This helps to keep the straw in one place instead of losing it in the bottle like you might do if you’re distracted or don’t want to drink something all the time.

Securus to GTL: Do you feel lucky?

Recently Securus Technologies, the nation’s number one provider of inmate communications services, was caught off guard by its competitor, GTL, making a litany of spurious claims regarding Securus’ technology. Securus responded with an offer to conduct a technological shoot out, whereby GTL’s technology would be put up against that of Securus in a head-to-head match. Unsurprisingly, the disadvantaged GTL declined.



Customers prefer Securus, four to one


Securus’ CEO, Rick Smith, has stated that for every contractual dollar Securus loses to GTL, they gain four. This is unsurprising. For the better part of a decade, Securus’ massive research and development expenditures, totaling almost $1 billion, have led to industry-leading technology across their product lineup. Not only does Securus offer higher technology and more feature-rich solutions, they offer them at a much lower cost than the competition. All this adds up to inmates and prison staff enthusiastically asking for Securus technologies to be installed in their institutions.


One product which has positively affected the lives of customers more than any other is Securus’ Primonics video visitation suite. This product has revolutionized the way that inmates communicate with loved ones, allowing for many prisoners who would have been all but denied access to family the opportunity to stay in daily contact with those on the outside who infuse their lives with meaning. This has had a cascade of positive benefits, one of the primary ones being a sharp decrease in disciplinary events where the system is installed. As many guards will be quick to attest, happy inmates are orderly inmates.


But Securus’ product line is deep. Offering everything from automated prescription management, which severely reduces potentially fatal medical errors, to a STINGRAY system that detects and jams illicit cell phones, Securus is truly a prison services company for the 21st century.



How To Stay On Top Of One’s Own Reputation

There is a lot that a business owner has to do in order to run a business. For one thing, he has to stay on top of what is selling so that he can continue to bring in the products that are profitable. Another thing that the business owner has to do is make sure that he is dealing with the concerns that customers have. This is so that he can keep all of the misunderstandings to a minimum. However, there is one aspect of business that is very important beyond what people realize. This is the management of online reputation.

One of the reasons that online reputation management is important is that it is what people go by when they decide whether or not they want to do business with a company. The only issue is that people are going to have to track every mention of the company in order to be on top of online reputation. Unfortunately, this is almost impossible with successful businesses. They have tons of customers and there will be tons of mentions. However, there are tools that people could use in order to track every mention of the brand. Then people will be able to know every mention and respond accordingly.

One of the most important things for people to do is to influence the customer on whether or not they are going to buy the product. This is especially important for businesses that have a lot of negative reviews. There is going to be some hesitation on the part of the customer. This is why it is important to make sure that all of the negative reviews are addressed and taken care of in an appropriate manner. It is also important to have some good reviews from customers as well so that others will feel comfortable with using the service.
