BIOGRAPHICAL SKETCH OF JACOB WHEELER
Jacob Wheeler spent over fifteen years exploring his creative talents in various capacities within the entertainment and fashion industries of Europe and Asia—at times acting, often singing, but whether in Rome, Tokyo, Cannes or Paris, always pursuing his creative impulses.
While in Paris, as a singer, Jacob released recordings under the pseudonym, “The Peter Jacques Band,” and several solo recordings. He later joined the cast of “Bubbling Brown Sugar,” as an actor/singer, subsequently, recording a duet with the Broadway Show’s star performer, Vivian Reed. The songs were his compositions.
When the French government opened the airwaves to privately owned radio stations, Jacob secured the financing and managed the first “All-English Radio” station in Paris (KLOV-96.6FM) where he also served as an on-air personality each morning. During that same period Jacob was instrumental in producing fashion shows with and for the legendary designer, M. Hubert de Givenchy.
Since childhood, Jacob has been an avid movie fan and critic. His first viewing of the remarkable classic film, Cinema Paradiso, convinced him that the story was about his own life. During those years, living in France and Italy, he made frequent visits to the Cannes Film festival. When asked how he was able to go year after year, he responded, “…they told me only actors get in free. So I told them, I’m an actor, to which they requested my film credits. I listed every film I knew had more than five black people. After producing a homemade headshot that evening, I became a badge wearing entrant.”
Jacob toured Italy for several years as lead singer for various Italian artists including Enzo Avitabile, Tony Esposito and performed in a video for Edoardo Bennato. Also, recorded songs for the Joe D’Amato film “Top Model.” Jacob’s Italian adventure, culminated in a concert in New York City at the famed Apollo Theatre with James Brown and the Temptations called “Harlem Meets Naples.” Ironically, Jacob was listed on the program as one of the Italian guests, as he had made the journey from Rome with the Italians.
In Japan, Jacob became a print model, while singing in Tokyo jazz clubs and touring the country with several different Japanese artists. Then, just before leaving Japan, he performed the closing theme for the blockbuster Japanese animated film, Gundam, (“Magic”) which he also composed.
In an attempt to provide security for his wife and daughter, Jacob became a stockbroker and later a manager of two different California branches of Citibank, Huntington Beach and Woodland Hills. The most astonishing detail of this adventure was that Jacob never went to college. Among other achievements in banking, Jacob created and conducted numerous seminars on financial literacy.
A former U. S. Air Force Intelligence Specialist, Jacob is fluent in French and Italian and is currently studying Spanish.
Jacob left the financial services industry and returned to his first love, entertainment and the visual arts. Photography has been added to his professional repertoire. Be it, portraits, products, likenesses of creatures in the clouds, or erotic imagery, he proclaims, “beauty is everywhere in everything.” Currently living in New York City and studying with celebrity acting coach Susan Batson, while working on a screenplay and One-Man Show to be unveiled in September.

More About Senator David Carlucci:
Since coming to Albany in 2010, Senator Carlucci has brought a new approach to governing in the 21st century. He has worked with the Governor to promote fiscal discipline by passing three consecutive on-time budgets without raising taxes, passing the largest middle class tax cut in nearly 60 years, implementing a property tax cap, and fighting to eliminate the job-killing MTA payroll tax. He has also pushed legislation to create jobs and grow our economy. This includes Jobs for Heroes, providing tax credits to businesses that hire returning veterans serving overseas, including his work to reduce burdensome regulations and promote entrepreneurism.
The Senator also has played an instrumental role in standing up for progressive issues. This includes being an outspoken voice against hydrofracking in New York, fighting to protect a woman's right to choose, and being a key supporter of passing marriage equality in New York. As Chairman of the Senate Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Committee, he also fought this past legislative session in restoring critical funding to the Office for People with Developmental Disabilities (OPWD) and the nonprofit service providers that assist our most vulnerable residents.
Senator Carlucci is married to Lauren Grossberg Carlucci, where they reside in the Town of Clarkstown, Rockland County. He and Lauren had their first child late last year and are excited to be new parents.

ABOUT GNANAMBIKAI ALLIRAJAH
Gnanambikai Allirajah is a philanthropist and social worker and is the co-founder of Gnanam Foundation, a charity organisation aimed at providing marginalised communities with the support they need to improve their lives. Born in Jaffna, Sri Lanka, in 1944, as the third of four children, Gnanambikai excelled in creative arts and was highly skilled at knitting, sewing and cooking.
When she was in her teens, her family moved to Mullaitivu for business and in 1964 she married and moved again, this time to Trincomalee. Her husband was a harbour employee in Trincomalee Port and together they had four children, sadly losing one at the age of five. In 1982, after caring for him for some time, her husband passed away after suffering from cancer. As a result, Gnanambikai found herself a widow in her late 30s and, to look after the family, she opened a local shop and ran an agriculture production business, working the land herself.
In the early 1980s, her children began moving to Europe to escape the Sri Lankan Civil War and in 1992 she was fortunate enough to be able to join them in France, before moving to the UK in 2000. In Paris, Gnanambikai helped with her sons’ movie distribution business and in 1994 she embarked on a business venture in reselling telecoms calling cards. Both her two sons then joined this business and have since developed Vectone and the Lyca Groups, which features Lycamobile, an international mobile virtual network operator, now the largest of its kind in the world with an estimated annual revenue of around 1.8 billion US Dollars.
In 2010, Gnanambikai and her son, Lyca Group Chairman Allirajah Subaskaran, founded Gnanam Foundation. The Foundation does not receive any donations from the public, with all its money coming from its founders. To date, some of its projects include, but are not limited to:
Gnanambikai now has three children, eight grandchildren and a large extended family spreading across the globe. She has helped many people fleeing the persecution and violence of the civil war to get refuge in Europe, and this “helping” attitude she demonstrated even as a young child by taking care of children, running errands for neighbours and helping those in need. In addition to Gnanam Foundation, Gnanambikai is an active member of the Tamil Sangam Social Club in East Ham, London, which aims to help the elderly, arrange cultural programmes and generally make a difference to the local community.

World Renowned Spine Health Specialist, Dr. Ken Hansraj Receives the 3rd G.O.D. Awards' Lifetime Achievement for Global Spine Health at the UN
Dr. Kenneth K. Hansraj, Spinal & Orthopedic Surgeon
Global Spine Health Humanitarian
On the forefront of spinal surgery with stem cell usage in spine surgery, bloodless spine surgery, minimally invasive approaches when possible, advanced bone grafting techniques using spinal navigation to assess instrumentation placement, modern operating tables and nerve monitoring during spine surgery, Dr. Kenneth K. Hansraj is a spinal and orthopedic surgeon specializing in cervical, thoracic and lumbar procedures for example laminectomies and spinal fusions.
Yet still, Dr. Ken has a strong desire to help the world through better spinal health. In November of 2014 he performed a study on the impact of good posture on the pressures seen by the neck. This study was carried globally by world media. Essentially he found that when the head is straight up in good posture then it weighs 10 pounds. In the posture of 60 degrees forwards the head weighs 60 pounds.
The impact of this study is that with human beings globally, keeping their heads down two to four hours a day, then it is approximately at least 1,250 hours a year leading to about 300,000 pounds of stress on the neck every four years, for example teens in high school.
This study was carried by almost every global news outlet. Cision media company, certified 3.4 billion unique views. There was subsquently more coverage in major magazines such as Men’s Health, Women’s Health, Esquire, GQ, Forbes, Natural Health, Time Magazine USA, Time Magazine India, etc. It is for these reasons the team believe that they have achieved over 4 billion unique views.
Dr. Hansraj believes in whole body wellness, preventative care and that the spine is a principal indicator of general health impacted by “human software and hardware.”
Dr. Hansraj was inspired to dedicate his life to surgery early on while observing in the operating theaters of Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY with cardiothoracic surgeons Drs. Arisan Ergin and Randall Griepp at just 16 years of age. He earned his medical degree from Hahnemann University School of Medicine, Philadelphia in 1987 after obtaining graduate studies in biological sciences from Columbia University, New York and an undergraduate degree in biological sciences from Fairleigh Dickinson University, New Jersey. He credits internationally renowned master surgeons Dr. Chitranjan S. Ranawat, Dr. Lance Weaver and Dr. Patrick F. O’Leary for their guidance and teachings in his career. His third standard (grade 3) teacher Brigu Persaud was instrumental in guidance.
He selected spinal surgery as a sub-specialization in orthopedic surgery because it was uncharted territory at the time in contrast to other forms of more traditional orthopedic procedures including joint replacement. Dr. Hansraj wanted to be at the forefront of a new, exciting and challenging chapter in medicine and contribute to the shape of the overall future of spinal health and well-being.
Following the completion of his general surgery and orthopedic surgery residency training at Mount Sinai Hospital and King/Drew Medical Center, (during which he completed a Fellowship in Orthopedic Biomechanics at The Hospital for Special Surgery, NY), Dr. Hansraj held a Fellowship at the California Center for Minimally Invasive Spine Surgery and a Fellowship in Spinal and Scoliosis Surgery at The Hospital for Special Surgery, New York.
Today, with more than two decades of surgical experience, Dr. Hansraj has seen and treated more than 30,000 patients, and has come to recognize and promote the critical importance of the spine as it relates to overall physical and mental well-being.
He is the author of the international bestselling book, Keys to an Amazing Life: Secrets of the Cervical Spine, (January, 2013), which he was inspired to write based on this concept. Dr. Hansraj is also the author of Bloodless Spine Surgery: Pictures and Explanations. His goal with each of his books is to bring years of accumulated expert medical knowledge to the public at-large in an easy-to-digest format and to help countless individuals with ongoing spinal and health issues.
Dr. Hansraj currently practices in New York, New York and Poughkeepsie, New York. He is an attending orthopaedic spine surgeon at Mid-Hudson Regional Hospital at Westchester Medical Center. He is board-certified by the American Board of Orthopaedic Surgery, the American Board of Minimally Invasive Spinal Medicine and Surgery, and the National Board of Medical Examiners.
He has authored medical books for the layperson and the professional and has written extensively for medical journals in addition to lecturing at national and global seminars, universities and conferences.
Dr. Hansraj teamed with internationally recognized, master architect Dermot Sweeny to develop The LandWorks Center, an all steel and glass, energy-efficient, Leed Platinum green building in Fishkill, NY. With floor to ceiling glass, a daylight harvesting system, motorized sunshades, open windows, and under floor air distribution, this building will augment fresh air, daylight and sunlight (without glare), beauty, health and human comfort in the work place.
Dr. Hansraj resides with his wife, Dr. Marcia Griffin-Hansraj, a doctor of osteopathic medicine in Rockland County. In his spare time, Dr. Hansraj enjoys an array of physical activities including skiing, walking, jogging, running, plyometrics, weight training, yoga, spending time with his family, and changing people’s lives for the better as often as humanly possible.
Dr. Kenneth Hansraj believes that people everywhere can be happier, healthier and more productive when they pay attention to their spinal health. He feels that the world can “feel better, and do more!”
