Sketchfab Announces New Milestone of 3 Million Community Members

Sketchfab Grows to 3 Million Members

“We’re both proud that Sketchfab has become the home of 3D on the internet and excited to keep pushing the boundaries with new features and updates”

NEW YORK (PRWEB) February 10, 2020
Sketchfab was founded almost 8 years ago on the idea that both the creation and consumption of 3D content will become an ever-increasing part of our digital lives. Reaching the 3,000,000 community members milestone is a huge validation of this assumption. With still a relatively small team of 30 people, this milestone has the added satisfaction of there now being 100,000 community members for each member of the Sketchfab team. Since reaching 2 million users in November 2018, Sketchfab has seen the growth of new subcommunities:
With over 300,000 free 3D models, community members are increasingly joining Sketchfab to source Creative Commons licensed content for their own projects, ‘remixing’ it and building upon other artist’s work. As the best 3D repository on the web, it’s easy to import Sketchfab models into other creative software.
Since the launch of the Sketchfab Store, thousands of community members have also started turning their passion for creation into revenue. Thanks to Sketchfab’s 3D viewer and model inspector, buyers can experience 3D models at their best and have full confidence in their purchases.
Finally, another growing community group is web developers, who build experiences and applications on top of Sketchfab using its ‘Viewer API’. Some great examples of their work showcase the power of 3D in online shopping and interactive news.
“We’re both proud that Sketchfab has become the home of 3D on the internet and excited to keep pushing the boundaries with new features and updates in the future,” said Alban Denoyel, Co-founder and CEO of Sketchfab. “A huge thank you to every single member of our community for helping us reach this historic milestone—here’s to the next million!”

Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery Hits Milestone With 500 Google Reviews

Dr. Vitenas 500 Google Reviews

HOUSTON (PRWEB) January 30, 2020
Paul Vitenas, MD, FACS and the staff at Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery are proud to report the office has topped over 500 Google reviews. The dedication to patient safety and satisfaction can be seen in the outpouring of positive online testimonials. While hitting 500 Google reviews has been a goal for the practice for years, generating this large amount of patient participation is unusual for a plastic surgery practice.
Online reviews have become increasingly important over the last ten years. Reviews on Google, Yelp, Manta, RealSelf and Facebook are now a key source of consumer information. Star ratings and reviews may be the only research a new consumer will do when picking their destination. As the modern “word of mouth” recommendation, over 90% of consumers are more likely to make a purchase after reading a positive online testimonial.
Google reviews can serve multiple purposes for the plastic surgery practice. A high star rating immediately tells the potential patient that the provider has achieved good results in the past, prompting a closer look. Google reviews will also give a practice credibility in its field. However, it is the number of reviews that demonstrates just how many patients have experienced a pleasing experience at the office. The higher the number of Google reviews, the more people that have visited the office for treatment.
Houston is one of the fastest-growing cities in the United States. With thousands of people coming to the area each year, Google reviews are a key method for reaching potential patients. Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery’s 500 reviews will help spread the word about the award-winning practice.
“Thank you to all of our patients for helping us achieve a real milestone…putting us over the top in achieving one of our goals we had for the last five years,” Dr. Vitenas explains, “(We appreciate) patients taking the time to share with the rest of the world their experience with us.”
Exceeding 500 patient testimonials requires a talented, experienced surgeon with an artistic eye. It also requires a dedicated team of nurses, aestheticians, surgical techs, and patient coordinators. Everyone does their part to deliver an exceptional experience for every person who walks through the doors. No matter how large or small a request, the staff understands how important every touchpoint is during each patients’ surgical journey. “We do our best to treat all of our patients like they are our family… (we do with) them what we would do to one of our family members.”
ABOUT HOUSTON’S VITENAS COSMETIC SURGERY
Dr. Vitenas is a board-certified plastic surgeon and the founder of Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery. Over the last 30 years, his practice has grown from a small office south of Houston to a large, custom-built facility in the exclusive River Oaks neighborhood. The state-of-the-art building, on the corner of Richmond and Drexel, includes Dr. Vitenas’ office and treatment rooms, as well as his personal operating rooms and a private recovery suite. A discrete entrance ensures patient confidentiality. Free, off the street parking makes Vitenas Cosmetic Surgery easy and convenient. Sitting directly above Mirror Mirror Beauty Boutique, patients can opt for both surgical and noninvasive treatments in a single location.

CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund Reaches Three-Year Milestone and Continues to Demonstrate Strong Performance

A successful track record along with increased demand for differentiated solutions has driven solid growth for the Fund across all channels. CION Ares Management believes this critical milestone positions the Fund for growth moving forward.
Press Release – updated: Jan 28, 2020 08:00 EST

NEW YORK, January 28, 2020 (Newswire.com) – CION Investments (CION), a leading manager of alternative investment solutions, today announced that the CION Ares Diversified Credit Fund (CADC) has reached its three-year anniversary and has achieved a 6.9% annualized return since inception with a distribution rate of 5.4% as of Dec. 31, 2019.1 
CADC, managed by CION Ares Management, seeks to capitalize on market inefficiencies and relative value opportunities by dynamically allocating a portfolio of directly originated loans, secured floating and fixed-rate syndicated loans, corporate bonds, asset-backed securities, commercial real estate loans and other types of credit instruments. This “best-ideas” strategy was created to directly leverage Ares Management Corporation’s renowned global credit platform and provide institutional-quality asset management in a continuously offered, 1940-Act interval fund structure.   
CADC has experienced significant growth since its launch in 2017, having reached $695 million in total managed assets as of year-end, with successful capital raised across wirehouses, registered investment advisers, and independent broker-dealers. With CADC reaching its three-year anniversary, the Fund continues to expand and attract new investors.  
The Fund’s focus on senior-secured loans and the ability to be selective across asset classes have created a solution that offers enhanced income, increased portfolio diversification, and reduced correlation to public markets. The unconstrained flexibility within a single portfolio allows the investment team to capture the best relative value across the credit universe and capitalize on episodic market dislocations.
Michael A. Reisner and Mark Gatto, co-CEOs of CION Investments, commented, “The credit markets continue to be an important source of stable income and investors are beginning to value investments that have lower correlations to other assets in their portfolios. Against this backdrop, we believe our strategy, driven by our ability to dynamically allocate capital across credit sectors and geographies, is well situated to seek attractive risk-adjusted returns for our shareholders.”
CADC is a daily-NAV interval fund, whose Class A Share was incepted on Jan. 26, 2017, and trades under the ticker CADEX.​
1 Returns include reinvestment of distributions and reflect fund expenses inclusive of expense support which will remain in effect at least until July 31, 2020, and may be subject to reimbursement in the future. The net expense ratio, inclusive of expense support, is 4.30% as of Oct. 31, 2019. The gross expense ratio, without expense support, is 4.03% as of Oct. 31, 2019. Expense ratios are annualized and calculated as a percentage of average net assets. Performance shown here is the A Share Class, which was incepted on Jan. 26, 2017. Return shown does not reflect the sales charge for Class A of 5.75%. Including this charge, returns are 4.8% since inception. Share values will fluctuate, therefore if repurchased, they may be worth more or less than their original cost. Past performance is not indicative of future results.
