Veterans’ business ‘incubator’ among 2020 Newman’s Own award winners

Long before the COVID-19 pandemic hit, Jack Fanous and his team at GI Go Fund knew veterans needed an online platform to connect them to resources they need.

“We knew if it wasn’t online, it wasn’t really happening,” said Fanous, CEO of GI Go Fund. They set out to build the technology seven years ago, and hundreds of nonprofits now use their model, he said.

The technology helps support their hands-on local effort in the New York/Newark, N.J. region, where they meet a variety of needs for veterans — from employment assistance, housing and financial aid, to benefits assistance and legal support. They help veterans find employment and develop small businesses, provide transportation support, mentoring and job training.

GI Go Fund was recognized with the highest honor and a $50,000 award in this year’s Newman’s Own Awards, for its Veterans Center for Job Training and Entrepreneurship launched two years ago

The personal and health information of more than 16 million Brazilian COVID-19 patients has been leaked online after a hospital employee uploaded a spreadsheet with usernames, passwords, and access keys to sensitive government systems on GitHub this month.

Among the systems that had credentials exposed were E-SUS-VE and Sivep-Gripe, two government databases used to store data on COVID-19 patients.

E-SUS-VE was used for recording COVID-19 patients with mild symptoms, while Sivep-Gripe was used to keep track of hospitalized cases.

The two databases contained sensitive details such as patient names, addresses, ID information, but also healthcare records such as medical history and medication regimes.

The leak came to light after a GitHub user spotted the spreadsheet containing the passwords on the personal GitHub account of an employee of the Albert Einstein Hospital in the city of Sao Paolo.

The user later notified Brazilian newspaper Estadao, which analyzed the

This year’s Small Business Saturday may be the most critical in history

By Dan Nordberg

Small Business Saturday is a relatively new American tradition. While Black Friday has been an informal holiday for more than 60 years, it wasn’t until 2010 that the Saturday after Thanksgiving earned its official title, designating it as a day to shop local and support hometown retailers.

In a year when businesses have faced profound challenges due to the COVID-19 pandemic, this year’s Small Business Saturday may be more critical than ever before. In fact, many locally owned retailers earn upward of 50 percent of annual revenues during the period between Thanksgiving and Christmas. As precautions have been taken to slow the spread of the coronavirus, many restaurants, retailers and service businesses are concerned that benchmark will be hard to achieve.

As the voice of America’s entrepreneurs, the U.S. Small Business Administration celebrates the nation’s 30 million small businesses that ignite our local economies and enrich our
