Author of "The Dog Merchants: Inside the Big Business of Breeders, Pet Stores, and Rescuers"
http://www.kimkavin.com/

"My two primary areas of expertise are yachts and dogs. I do write about other things—including doing advertorial work for Atlantic Re:Think about everything from big data to the Internet of Things—but most of the time I’m working with content that involves yachts or dogs.

The luxury yachts, I have been covering since 2000, when I was executive editor at Yachting magazine. I held that job for three years and then left to open my freelance business. My byline has continually appeared since then with various marine magazines and websites, and I’m recognized worldwide as one of the leading journalists in the field. I’m still on the masthead at Yachting, too. I’m their charter editor, which means writing and photographing full-length features, and I do part-time editing for the print magazine plus Web and e-newsletter content creation.

The dogs, I started writing about after adopting a mutt named Blue whose story just begged to be told. My first foray into dog writing was in (Show Full Bio)2012 with the publication of Little Boy Blue, a hardcover book from Barron’s that earned national awards and helped end the use of a gas chamber in a North Carolina animal-control facility. My second dog book, The Dog Merchants, was the lead hardcover title for spring 2016 from Pegasus Books. That book led to legislative amendments in a New Jersey “puppy mill” bill intended to become a national model. I’ve now had dog-related bylines everywhere from Dogster and Salon.com to The New York Post and the New Republic, and I really enjoy doing investigative journalism that helps to make a difference for the dogs."

"As Conservation International's Director for Marine Climate Change I work on vital issues surrounding sustainability, conservation, and human well being. Through this position I hope to enhance our overall understanding of the impacts of climate change on coastal and marine ecosystems and the communities that depend on them as well as influence climate policy decisions.

I believe that ecosystem management and protection is the best way to conserve not only species of concern but the habitats and food webs on which they depend; developing and implementing ecosystem services, like blue carbon initiatives, can be valuable conservation tools; and ecosystem conservation is a global issue that will take multi-national cooperation to achieve.

Ford Motor Company is collaborating with four Girl Scouts Councils – Tropical Florida, Southeastern Michigan, Northeast Texas and Northern New Jersey – on a program that offers avenues for elementary school students to explore STEAM-related fields in science, technology, engineering, arts and math.

Girls’ Fast Track Races is providing hands-on experience in vehicle engineering and design to 200 Brownies and 200 Juniors from each of the participating councils. Through the program, young girls are given the opportunity to learn about automotive science and engineering by building their own track race cars.

“We believe that all young children have an aptitude for technical subjects – what’s often lacking is the encouragement and additional support to succeed,” said Tracy Magee, Ford primary brand experiential manager. “Ford is deeply committed to education and through creative programs such as the Girls’ Fast Track Races, we hope to spark excitement among the youth and inspi(Show Full Bio)re them to pursue future careers in high-tech fields.”

Zhang Jindong Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions
The Wharton School
https://oid.wharton.upenn.edu/profile/lhitt/

I am currently the Zhang Jindong Professor of Operations, Information and Decisions at the University of Pennsylvania, Wharton School. My central research area is on the relationship between information technology and productivity and the factors that affect the value of IT investments. Most of my recent work has been the study of complementary factors, such as organizational design and human capital, on the value of IT. Most of this work is directed at firms in all industries, although I have become increasingly interested in IT deployment in healthcare. In recent years, we have been more extensively working on the role of the IT workforce and issues that affect the demand and wages of IT workers (such as offshoring and the H1-B visa program). I have also been extensively involved in electronic business research investigating the the nature of competition in electronic markets (such as on-line travel agents), the value proposition for alternative delivery systems (such as online reta(Show Full Bio)il banking), the role of switching costs in determining pricing and product strategy (as in online discount brokerage), and the effect of recommender systems on consumer behavior.

I teach undergraduate and graduate courses in information systems management and economics and data analysis. I also teach the undergraduate core class in OPIM in the Fall (off-season).

In my spare time, I also consult and conduct research into the design of IT outsourcing agreements, methods for evaluating IT investments, and other questions at the intersection of information systems, economics and econometrics. I also occasionally serve as an expert witness for information technology and consumer-related litigation (intellectual property, consumer behavior in computers and consumer electronics industries, enterprise software, and software project problems).
