MEXICO OIL REFORM ADVANCES WITH FIRST PRIVATE WELL IN 80 YEARS

Foreign competitors have set up a new company in Mexico after the country accepted them back so as to revive the energy market. Therefore, an offshore exploration well has started to be drilled by three of these companies. They include; Houston’s Talos Energy LLC, London based Premier Oil PLC and Mexico’s Sierra Oil and Gas as said by Premier. From the time Brazil nationalized the oil Industry, only the state run monopoly (Petroleos Mexicanos) would launch a well, thus making this one the first to be launched by a different person. Premier in the statement also said that the Zama-1 well holds approximately 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude and it is located off Tabasco State, Sureste Basin.

When the oil industry in Brazil was opened to private investment, through bidding, the three companies above won rights to the well. The London based Edison Investment research Ltd analyst, Elaine Reynolds, quoted that the non-Pemex well will be watched carefully by the oil industry. Charlie Sharp, Canaccord Genuity Ltd analyst said in a client’s note that given the Mexican market implications, Zama-1 well will be among the most interesting to be drilled in the sector. Actually, given the basin structure, chances of geological success are high. In this business venture as stated by Premier, Sierra holds 40 % while Premier holds 25 % and Talos, the operator, holds 35 %.

Talos Energy LLC’s chief executive is known as Duncan. He, together with other partners from London and Mexico are the founders of Zama-1 well. Talos is an oil and gas company based in Houston. It is in fact, a private company and the first foreign operator in Mexico after about 80 years (since 1938). It was started with assets from the Gulf of Mexico, 15 workers from Gulf Coast that later increased after sealing a deal with Apollo Management and Riverstone Holdings and $600 in Equity by previous bankers such as Riverstone Holdings. Talos’ ventures on offshore premises. Thus, it focuses on the Gulf of Mexico and the Gulf Coast.

Why Cancer Patients Stand to Benefit from Cancer Treatment Centers of America

About the services
Cancer Treatment Centers of America, NantHealth and Allscripts planned one mind-blowing project way back in 2016 that could help cancer patients and the health-care providers increase clinical workflows. The project involving the integration of NantHealth’s eviti into Allscripts’ Electronic Health Record (EHR) has given rise to the Clinical Pathways Program. Through the aid of the seamless integration system that involved a clinical support solution, the program comes with the ability to relay information to the cancer treatment process without having to interrupt the oncologist’s clinical mode of the workflow. Additionally, this program has made use of the direct interface referred to as Nantos (a clinical operating system) which harbors a detailed collection of data pertinent to evolving cancer care
Clinical Pathways: Just Inevitable
Since Clinical Pathways have proved itself as a reliable storehouse for the best cancer treatment options, it has created an important medical ecosystem. In this ecosystem, there is a variety of cancer treatment options can be accessed in almost all the CTCA centers. Additionally, the program has duly passed of the need to eliminate any form of potential guesswork, typical of most clinicians in their routine practice. Still on this program, is the fact that its design factored in the patient. It, therefore, means that Clinical Pathways integrates some of the most advanced cancer research presents in these times, complementary therapies and even the regimens into the EHR.
CTCA in the USA
There are five major CTCA, namely in Philadelphia, Oklahoma, Tulsa, Chicago, Phoenix. At these centers, one finds a hub of experienced and passionate oncologists whose teamwork make fighting cancer cases worthwhile. In addition to the working, personnel are important treatment technologies and approaches that are just up to date with the evolving technologies as far as the cancer treatment is concerned.

Care and Treatment
Nevertheless, the provision then gives the oncologists more opportunity to establish proper care protocols while considering the various stages of cancer medication. At these centers, the patient gets assured of access to therapies and tools that aid in diagnosis and possible attack of the diseases. These treatments and devices always vary with the type of cancer that the patient suffers from and also on one’s individual needs. At CTCA, this clause implies that even as treating cancer is paramount, compassionate care is still providence.

Cassio Audi: Musician Par Excellence of Yore

Cassio Audi is one of Brazil’s leading heavy metal drummers. That automatically makes him an integral part of the great Brazilian heavy metal scene. He was the force behind the Brazilian iconic heavy metal band Viper. It was his sounds that catapulted Viper to its tremendous fame.

The first ever album by the group, Soldiers of Sunrise forever immortalized the name of Audi in the Brazilian rock hall of fame. Though he was primarily active between 1985 to 1989, the impact that he left behind was such that he lives on in the hearts of the Brazilian heavy metal fans of that generation and beyond.

That is the thing about art and artists. Both are immortal. An artist may have played or performed only for a very short period, but the sheer heft and grandeur of their music makes them forever a part of the lives of the people they impact. That is certainly true of Audi of all Brazilian musicians.

Before the release of Soldiers of Sunrise, the group had produced two demo albums Projeto SP Metal, and the Killera Sword, both in 1985. The group Viper and particularly Cassio Audi are Brazil’s very own rock celebrities who in their time and to quite an extent till this day epitomize what heavy metal is all about-aggression, attitude and fantastically stirring drumming.

It is all about forcefully conveying your raw thoughts. There is no typically Latino lilt here. It’s all macho and all aggression. Their fans loved them and idolized them, especially when Audi got playing the drums. Even today if you watch any of the old videos of the group, you understand what magic they must have wrought. Music, of course, has no language and you don’t have to know Portuguese to feel the pure passion in the music. Viva Viper! Viva Cassio Audi!

Evolving the Cancer Treatment Centers of America

Cancer is nothing to mess around with, and the Cancer Treatment Centers of America(CTCA) know this all too well. The CTCA is in a constant battle to improve protection and care of cancer victims in the United States. Now, they are receiving tremendous help from other companies to launch their company into the next level of patient care. With the assistance of Allscripts and NantHealth, they are implementing a support solution named eviti, a NantHealth Clinical program, to access Allscripts electronic health record(EHR). This will help them inform the cancer treatment process, without interrupting any other workflows.

The program can quickly gain access to the most recent research and regimes on treating cancer. It will suggest different treatment options for the CTCA and the patient to review before beginning. Customized to the patient, the program will focus on enacting the best possible solution and therapies to help a patient during the treatment process. Patients will also be able to speak with others about the different options, to get advice from people experiencing the same hardships.

This plan will help ease the minds of patients, and provide unbiased, recent medical research for the doctor to use during the battle against cancer. It will be a massive help to the CTCA, who has been battling alongside patients for almost 30 years. The CTCA has become the go-to company for treating cancer and the unpleasant side effects that go along with it. The company now spreads across America, providing help to the brave souls who are battling with one of the biggest leading causes of death.

Available for 24/7 assistance, the CTCA understands that cancer is very specific to the patients. No two situations can be dealt with the exact same way. To read more on CTCA, view their website.

America’s Innovative Approach To Curing Terminal Illnesses

Oncology is a severe disease that can target any organ. Now, thanks to modern findings and treatments, we are capable of not only diagnosing cancer at the earliest stages, but also to effectively cure it. These methods of healing are offered in a lot of clinics with a world-wide name, but it was in America that an effective system of measures aimed at fighting the disease was developed.

NantHealth and Allscripts have authorized the SaaS-supported eviti® system. By allowing oncologists access to eviti®’s seamlessly integrated platform coupled with the use of Allscripts Sunrise electronic health records; procedures, methods and techniques are enabling an increasing number of patients to survive.

Treatment in American clinics. Allscripts and NantHealth Features and Techniques

Cancer treatment in the US is based in Boca Raton, Florida as CTCA (Cancer Treatment Centers of America Global, Inc). CTCA uses a comprehensive and individual approach used by doctors. All procedures are carried out in specialized centers, where a team of specialists operates in a cohesive way in one direction. It includes:
• Therapists;
• Diagnostics;
• Oncologists;
• Immunologists;
• Psychologists and others.

Innovative diagnostic methods used in this country allow to identify the disease in the first stage, during this period, effective treatment is still possible, and there is no high probability of relapses. Therefore, timely diagnosis is the key to a successful cure for cancer. To this end, clinics offer patients to undergo a complete blood count, identify cancer markers, carry out endoscopic diagnostics and other types of research.

Modern ways of treatment of oncological diseases

Cancer treatment in the US is appointed by NantHealth’s adaptive system, bases its information on the individual medical history, stage, degree of injury and other indicators including:

• Surgical method. Non-invasive operations are performed, while automated and robotic equipment is widely used, for example, the da Vinci system. This device is a robotic surgeon, which is very popular due to accurate and accurate movements, as well as the ability to penetrate the most inaccessible places. The uniqueness of such equipment is that the doctor, monitoring the process, fully controls its progress. Everything that happens is transmitted to the monitor, due to the high resolution all the smallest details are visible. It is proved that the use of this method allows to exclude infection of the patient, as well as to significantly reduce blood loss and cut size;

• radiation therapy. The essence of the procedure is that a ray is directed to the focus of a cancerous tumor, which practically destroys the neoplasm. Moreover, high-precision equipment does not affect healthy cells. This method is used both independently and in conjunction with others;

• Enhanced Chemotherapy treatment is using the most modern chemical preparations that allow, by destroying malignant formations, to cause minimal harm to the body

• Method of ultrasonic ablation. This is a fairly effective method, here the tumor is exposed to UVK waves that destroy it without damaging the healthy tissues.

These methods of curing terminal diseases do not end there. Hormone therapy, photodynamic therapy, and others are widely used. The choice of this or that method, and also their combination depends on the program of the specific medical center. In any case, in the treatment of cancer in the United States, each patient is guaranteed not only the use of the most effective treatment options, but also careful and careful treatment by specialists and support staff.

Avaaz Giving Individuals A Sense of Having A Voice

Avaaz is a civic organization that takes a unique view on how we change the world. The Avaaz organization’s mission is to connect citizens all over the world so that they can organize to work for causes that make the world a better place to exist in. These causes include humanitarian aid, political movements, peace movements, and civic right protests.

Avaaz stands out as an organization because of their stance that change can happen through the tool of the internet. While some argue that meaninful change occurs when people rally and “take to the streets”, Avaaz has put forth the example of how internet-based protests can manifest as change in the off-line world.The organization shows that when people use online means of raising funds, connecting, and organizing, their protests can happen faster and on a larger scale.

The co-founder of Avaaz, Ricken Patel, stated in an interview with BBC years ago that he saw the internet as simply a tool to be used, and that the results are what matter. The Avaaz mission has resulted in influencing legal cases, organizing thousands of offline events, raising millions of dollars towards humanitarian change, and giving individuals a feeling of hope and power, all over the globe.

The way that individuals can become agents of change is by beleiving that their voice matters. “Avaaz” actually means “voice” or “song” in Middle Eastern and Asian languages. This stands for giving people their voices back. In an age of global communication and transparency, individuals no longer need to settle for the way things have been over the course of history. A global movement of change can inspire individuals across the globe to speak out about what kind of a world they want, and what kind of a world they think is possible. The Avaaz organization uses the internet to give a voice to millions of people.
