Howard Lerman

Howard Lerman is an entrepreneur. Presently, Lerman is the CEO of Yext, a technology startup and Software as a Service company he co-founded that provides businesses with a way to update business information, including addresses and phone numbers, to multiple channels, such as landing pages and social pages, from a single source, the Yext Knowledge Engine. Lerman launched Confide, an iOS app which allows professionals to send one another messages that are untraceable, operating to Snapchat, but for the business world. Lerman's three previous ventures were all successful exits. Lerman grew up in Vienna and graduated from Thomas Jefferson High School for Science and Technology, a magnet school with various amenities such as a $1 million supercomputer, located in Fairfax County, in 1998. In the days before the Internet, Lerman rigged a phone line to his computer to allow him to chat online with others who had done the same, including fellow hacker and future entrepreneur, Sean Parker. In 2002, Lerman graduated from Duke University.

In 2000, his sophomore year at Duke and two former high school classmates, Tom Dixon and Sean Maclsaac launched JustATip.com, a humorous website that allowed users to e-mail friends “tips” anonymously. Jon Stewart used the site on The Daily Show. In 2001, Lerman and his partners sold JustATip.com to Traffix, a publicly traded online marketer, for $150,000. Lerman and Maclsaac next founded Intwine, a consulting firm with a specialization in Microsoft’s. NET programming language. In 2005, after growing the company and reaching $5 million in sales, Lerman sold Intwine to Daltran Media for $7 million. After seeing a salesman trying to attract new customers to a gym with a “Wheel of Savings”, Lerman came up with the idea for GymTicket.com, a lead generation service that directed people to gyms in their area. Within a year, GymTicket.com had over 3,000 gyms across the country signed up. Lerman and his team expanded their business to include nine additional categories, including LocalVets.com and TVRepairman.com.

As the group considered itself to be the "next Yellow Pages", they condensed this designation to create the company name, "Yext". Yext's early technology model focused on the lead-generation service, which recorded customer phone calls and charged clients based on keywords used in conversations. However, while working with clients to strategize on further developing their online presence and his colleagues recognized a consistent challenge: companies had trouble keeping tabs on all of their different online listings, only noticed a problem existed when a customer complained about outdated addresses or business hours. Lerman realized that businesses would pay to get all of their online information updated for them, he created a small company within Yext to focus on updating business listings, they developed cloud software known as "Powerlistings", launched in January 2011 and it was an immediate hit. Lerman decided to focus on this business listing model, spun out the pay-per-call business as a separate company called Felix.

He sold Felix to IAC’s CityGrid Media for $30 million in April 2012. All proceeds from the sale were reinvested to fund Yext's new Powerlistings product, now called Yext Listings. Yext's Knowledge Engine now offers a suite of products, expanding the company's services beyond business listings. Lerman serves as Yext's CEO. Forbes magazine featured Yext as one of America’s Top 25 Most Promising Companies of 2014 and 2015. Yext has been recognized as one of America's fastest-growing companies by the Inc. 5000 in 2015 and 2016, as one of Fortune's Best Places to Work in 2014, 2015 and 2016. Lerman is the Chairman of Confide with former AOL executive Jon Brod; the Confide app, which provides corporate users with the means to deliver untraceable messages, was released on January 8, 2014. Lerman lives in Miami Beach, Florida with his wife, Wendy

Palatability

Palatability is the hedonic reward provided by foods or fluids that are agreeable to the "palate", which varies relative to the homeostatic satisfaction of nutritional, water, or energy needs. The palatability of a food or fluid, unlike its flavor or taste, varies with the state of an individual: it is lower after consumption and higher when deprived, it has been appreciated that this can create a hunger, independent of homeostatic needs. The palatability of a substance is determined by opioid receptor-related processes in the nucleus accumbens and ventral pallidum; the opioid processes involve mu opioid receptors and are present in the rostromedial shell part of the nucleus accumbens on its spiny neurons. This area has been called the "opioid eating site"; the rewardfulness of consumption associated with palatability is dissociable from desire or incentive value, the motivation to seek out a specific commodity. Desire or incentive value is processed by opioid receptor-related processes in the basolateral amygdala.

Unlike the liking palatability for food, the incentive salience wanting is not downregulated by the physiological consequences of food consumption and may be independent of homoeostatic processes influencing food intake. Though the wanting of incentive salience may be informed by palatability it is independent and not reduced to it, it has been suggested that a third system exists that links opioid processes in the two parts of the brain: "Logically this raises the possibility that a third system, with which the accumbens shell, ventral pallidum, basolateral amygdala are associated, distributes the affective signals elicited by specific commodities across distinct functional systems to control reward seeking... At present we do not have any direct evidence for a system of this kind, but indirect evidence suggests it may reside within the motivationally rich circuits linking hypothalamic and brainstem viscerogenic structures such as the parabrachial nucleus, it has been suggested that "hedonic hunger" can be driven both in regard to “wanting” and “liking” and that a palatability subtype of neuron may exist in the basolateral amygdala.

Appetite is controlled by an indirect one. In both the direct and indirect loops there are two feedback mechanisms. First a positive feedback involving its stimulation by palatability food cues, second, a negative feedback due to satiation and satiety cues following ingestion. In the indirect loop these cues are learnt by association such as meal plate size and work by modulating the potency of the cues of the direct loop; the influence of these processes can exist without subjective awareness. The cessation of a desire to eat after a meal "satiation" is to be due to different processes and cues. More palatable foods reduce the effects of such cues upon satiation causing a larger food intake. In contrast, unpalatability of certain foods can serve as a deterrent from feeding on those foods in the future. For example, the Variable Checkerspot butterfly contains iridoid compounds that are unpalatable to avian predators, thus reducing the risk of predation.
