When people think of the SUV, soccer moms and family road trips could quickly come to mind. Instead, try to picture The Chevy Event, held in a North Carolina military tactical facility called The Range Complex. The Chevy Event shatters all those Hollywood film myths of how top-notch military operatives conduct missions with a hard cold splash of reality of what it truly takes to be successful in military operations. The exercises at TCE are comprised of experiencing first-hand training rescue simulations that push one’s mental and physical endurance to the limit. Unlike an action-packed movie, patience and maintaining calm are critical during high-stress conditions while still performing at an optimal level is what separates the wheat from the chaff. This is where the Cherovelt’s Tahoe Suburban SUVs come in.
Special Forces like Delta Force prefer the Tahoe and Suburban during rescue missions because of the cars’ reliability to still perform at a top-notch level. They have the capability of handling punishing off-road terrain due to their one of a kind suspension system and protective hardware to protect the underbelly of the vehicle from damage. Like Special Forces operatives, the Tahoe and Suburban can adapt to any changing situation with stealth without slowing down and compromising its performance.
Jim Reese, one of the co-founders of The Range Complex, explains the Tahoe and Suburban are chosen because they can withstand bullets and bodies. Reese would know, as a former Delta Force Lt. Colonel with 25 years of military service, who later went on to start his own successful Service-Disabled Veteran-Owned Small Business called TigerSwan, he has led the best of the best soldiers into the most dangerous situations known to man. His passion to serve and to listen is what motivated him to create TigerSwan – a company that would hire other disabled veterans and civilians that would contribute to making the world a better place. Sounds a bit corny? Well, Reese has made that core tenet of TigerSwan a reality. TigerSwan offers risk assessment, security, and construction logistical support domestic and abroad.

Nitin Khanna is also notable for the outstanding work he did during his tenure as the Chief Executive Officer at Mergertech. The journey that he took to finally become the CEO at Mergertech is an interesting story that provides an example of hard work and perseverance.

The diligence that he put into his schoolwork paid off when he reached college age as he was able to attend Purdue University in the United States.
While at the school he pursued industrial engineering as he felt it would be a field where there would always be a good opportunity for work. For this reason, he also went through post-graduate school in the same discipline. By the time he graduated, Nitin Khanna was ready to get some real-world experience.

International Paper was happy to give Nitin Khanna a job once he completed his studies. He worked as a manufacturing engineer and gained a great deal of real-world experience. Though he enjoyed the work, he always knew that eventually, the call to entrepreneurship would take hold. He had another stop along the way with the Oracle company but soon, Nitin Khanna was determined to start creating businesses and carving out his place in the world of business. Nitin got the opportunity to do this in the late 90s when he co-founded a software firm with his brother.
Saber Software is the name of the software firm that was formed by Nitin Khanna and his brother. One of the specific types of software developed by the Saber Software team was intended to be utilized in the management of an election process. The quality of this software brought it to the attention of election officials in Oregon that were looking to bring their election process up to date. This turned out to be the ideal springboard for getting the software into a total of 21 states. This helped to really get things going at Saber Software and it put Nitin Khanna in a strong position.

The development of blockchain technology is exciting and obscure. Consider how disruptive it is. At one point during the boom of 2017, the whole cryptocurrency market comprised over 1 percent of global GDP. That is quite impressive for a technology that was considered in a bubble at the time. The market would retract to about a quarter of its highest value.
Few people outside of the industry expected cryptocurrencies to make another serious run. However, what many onlookers did not know was that development never wavered. This is because blockchain, which differs from cryptocurrencies, provides a very real advantage for data management. It does a lot more actually, like establishing an environment for cryptocurrencies trading. Ultimately, blockchain development proves to be the best solution for what the Internet was truly meant to become and the innovation that it motivates.
Among the lesser-known contributors of blockchain technology is Serge Belamant. He is not a famous blockchain programmer that sought to create a highly touted ICO. Rather, Serge Belamant laid the groundwork for the development of blockchain. His work directly advances the relationship between digital payments, banking, and the online world. Serge Belamant also improved upon the security involved in these operations. Some of the patents he holds are:
Method and Apparatus for Controlling a Gaming Operation (2001)
Secure Financial Transactions (2010)
Designation of Electronic Financial Transactions (2012)
Verification of a Transactor’s Identity (2012)
Financial Transactions with a Varying Pin (2014)
Notice the time frame between Serge Belamant’s patents and the original blockchain. Bitcoin was released in 2009. However, back then, Bitcoin was not what it has become today. Today, blockchains run smart contracts. Essentially, these are programs that automatically fulfill transactions based upon the requests made by the parties involved. Smart contracts, or decentralized applications, were introduced much later in blockchain’s history. Ethereum introduced them successfully to be become Bitcoin’s top competitor. However, it was Serge Belamant who was looking into and developing secure smart cards for gaming operations back in 2001.
