Russell Marlett pens an inspirational and motivational book “Commentaries on the Book of Wisdom”

The book tells the story of a sailor who discovers a treasure that doesn’t come in the form of gold or gems.

San Diego, CA, USA – WEBWIRE

Some treasures come in life-altering verses. 

“Commentaries on the Book of Wisdom” (ReadersMagnet; 2022) by Russell Marlett tells about the discovery of thirty-two life-altering verses and their application to daily living. The story is told in the first person by a sailor who received these verses from a mysterious presence in a Guatemalan jungle hut.

The sailor described the mysterious figure as “a person of modest height, clad in a one-piece robe with a cowl that cast an impenetrable shadow over his face.” The mysterious figure gave the sailor the 32 verses that contain life-fulfilling truths. These verses offer the seeker tremendous opportunities for self-reflection and self-assessment. These verses make up the Book of Wisdom, which the mysterious figure said “is never complete” as “it has not been revealed. What more is to be known will be known in its time.”

What do these verses say, and how are they applicable to life? Know about them in Russell Marlett’s “Commentaries on the Book of Wisdom.” Order a copy on Amazon and ReadersMagnet Bookstore.

Author Bio

Russell Marlett grew up in a small company town in the Gulf Coast area of Texas. Reading was his primary activity as a child and into his teen years. His college career lasted two years, after which he embarked on an exploration of possibilities which included fighting forest fires, driving a truck in the grain harvest, working as a ranch hand, and serving as a paratrooper in the army.

He stumbled into a career in the automotive parts industry, met and married one of the most beautiful women he had ever seen, and became a suburbanite in the Houston area. As a family man, he took the family to church. He was asked to teach a class, which was his true introduction to an exploration of spirituality. Teaching required research, and research revealed that there is an underlying common truth in nearly all religions and religious philosophies.

He and his wife are now retired, but the exploration of other ideas, as well as those he has held onto for lo these many years, is a never-ending quest.

Dr. Russell Anderson Joins JUDI.AI as Chief Credit Scientist

JUDI.AI, technology leader in small business lending and growth analytics, today announced that Dr. Russell Anderson has joined the team as Chief Credit Scientist. Dr. Anderson will drive the data science strategy behind JUDI.AI’s proprietary credit risk models and small business growth analytics.

“Over the last year, many community banks and credit unions have struggled to answer two really important questions: What is the financial status of my small business customers, and how can I help them grow their business?” explained Gord Baizley, CEO of JUDI.AI. “With the addition of Russell’s deep domain expertise, we will continue to find innovative and efficient ways to surface answers to these questions, and solidify JUDI.AI as the data science experts in small business lending.”

Dr. Anderson has spent over 30 years developing artificial intelligence and machine learning solutions for Retail, eCommerce, and Financial Services, with specific expertise in credit and fraud risk management. Past roles include:

  • Chief Scientist for IBM’s Data Science Studio, where he developed the data science solutions and applications of 17 IBM/Watson products
  • Analytics Lead for Opera Solutions, which involved working with customers such as Hess Oil, VISA, Volkswagen, MasterCard, Westpac Australia, ACI Worldwide and Synovus Bank
  • Head of Decision Science at Halifax Bank of Scotland, where he supported full-lifecycle modeling for the retail bank including credit cards, loans, mortgages, risk and fraud
  • Head of Transaction Analytics at Chase Card Services, which involved the re-design of their transaction analysis system and developing analytics services for partners such as United Airlines, Marriott and Disney
  • Director of Modeling at HNC Software (now FICO), where he worked on the development of the first, billion-dollar commercial neural network application, Falcon

“The many moving variables of a small business – different operating models, costs, margins, demand drivers, competition, and seasonality – make small business credit decisioning more complex than consumer credit,” said Dr. Anderson. “This risk has traditionally caused hesitation within credit unions and community banks to help existing members or to take new SMB customers on, even though it is in their DNA to grow their communities. A critical capability enabled by the JUDI.AI platform is allowing a real-time review of cashflow for every loan applicant, both pre- and post- funding. This means financial institutions can monitor predictive success indicators such as debt-to-service credit ratios, and offer proactive business advice. The next AI chapter is all about adding the intake of other relevant and vertical-specific data, creating adaptive credit risk assessment models and teasing out more business growth insights that really matter.”
