It’s no surprise that a student who graduates cum
laud with a distinction in all subjects from Cornell University and goes on to
get his Juris Doctor (JD) degree from New York University would make waves- and
in a good way.
Meet Jeremy Goldstein, an attorney who is known for acquisitions such as Goodrich by United Technologies, Duke Energy/Progress Energy, and Bank of America Corporation/MBNA Corporation. Given this, it’s no wonder that he is also very involved in the community as well.
During May 2018, Goldstein and his friends hosted two wine dinners in order to support Fountain House, a company in which he is on the board of directors. The first dinner was held on the rooftop of the NoMad hotel and, along with amazing food, had a very prestigious Chateau Latour wine vintages. The event went over so well that they hosted a second event later in the month. The two events combined raised fifty-six thousand dollars for the Foundation House.
Foundation House is dedicated to helping men and women who have mental health issues. They recognize that mental health issues can cause people to not be able to not have good relationships or be able to hold jobs. Their company is able to secure jobs for forty-two percent of the people they help, which is an amazing statistic when people consider that eighty-five percent of people with mental health issues do not work.

Hiking became an important part of the lives of
the common people in Europe while the world was going through an economic
crisis. The unemployment rates were skyrocketing and there were just no jobs
available. This left a lot of people with a free time but no money to spend on entertainment. This is how hiking and climbing in Scotland became a spot that was
no longer just for the rich. It was during this time that writer and
broadcaster Alastair Borthwick first began writing about the sport in the Open
Air page for the Glasgow Herald.
Alastair Borthwick spent the majority of his time
hiking in the Scottish Hills. He was sociable by nature and enjoyed making a
connection to anyone that he came across while he was hiking. Because of this,
he met some interesting people and recounted the interesting stories that he
heard in his columns and book Always a Little Further. Writing about hiking wasn’t a new concept at the
time. It had been written about many times before but always from the
perspective of someone that was well to do and visiting exotic locations during
their hiking excursions.
The people that Alastair Borthwick was writing
about during his time in hiking were the people who didn’t have much or any
money at all. He met a lot of the people who were part of the crowd that
inspired a huge growth in hostels across Europe. Young people who couldn’t find
work were spending their time trekking across the continent and make the best
out of their situation. The elite who had seen the sport as an exclusive club were
generally not happy about this development. Finally, the common citizens of
Scotland were able to read about hiking from a perspective that they could
When Alastair Borthwick published his book Always
a Little Further, he collected the stories that he had written about in the
Open Air Column and put
them in one work. To this day, people still read and enjoy the book. It still
inspires people to get climbing.
