Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva is a well trained, a well educated and experienced dental practitioner who founded MB2 Dental. In doing so, it gave a chance to many other practitioners who needed fair support to keep on their desired paths in check. Dr. Villanueva is a passionate man when it came to the dental profession, as it was crucial.
Working every single day in a boring and slightly uninspiring setting that is the dentist office can discourage, Dr. Villanueva brought MB2 Dental into fruition. It was a wise choice on his part, as it grew into something so much more. As to where this incredible idea came from, it all started when Chris graduated from dental school. At the time, there were, unfortunately, very few options for that field of study. The options they had were group practices. Such as; state of the art Technology, economies of scales, etc. Or there was also the option to start a private practice, which was a tough enough task already. There was so supportive way to pursue a dental career.
The world was a tough place for any path. Which was why this program was created. First and foremost, it was for the patients receiving high quality care and being connected with doctors whom they could trust. On his own path, Chris used to think at night, worrying, until he got the idea fresh. By surrounding himself with smart people at the workplace and at home, he got himself even more inspiration to push forward. There were new technologies and new ways to get work done. Chris being technological himself, as a personal hobby of his, it excited him to see such progress happening within his passion.
Chris was born in Ohio. He traveled a lot pursuing his career and going to school to train up for the world. His wife was a physician as well, so this field of work was his whole world. There were a few little snags during his journey. One being a dental associate and he wished he would have came up with the idea for this program sooner. Having that old job, Chris saw that not all dentistry focused on high quality patient care, which was the heart of dentistry itself. So, now Dr. Villanueva put his foot down and began his own program to help struggling dental businesses get their chance.
Running a dental practice successfully is not a cakewalk as many different aspects need to be considered and worked upon. One of the most important aspects of any business is how well the administration is functioning. So, even if the dentist is doing his or her job perfectly, the patients can be completely taken care of when the administration is doing their job efficiently as well. The administrative functions like billing, follow-up, record-keeping, book keeping, accounting, recruitment, HR, credentialing, and so on, should be operating accurately to be able to run the dental practice successfully and keep customers satisfied with the service provided.
The problem with most of the dentists and the dental practice owner is that while they are good at their job of providing patients with proper treatment, they are not able to monitor the administrative part of the business well. The marketing part of the dental practice is also significant as there are so many dentists out there who are looking for more patients. So, if you are good at your job, the prospective patients need to know. It is where the role of marketing comes into the picture.

It has been a long time since a private company has been able to drill offshore in Mexico. This is because of regulations, government bodies and other things that have changed the way that people can do things. Because of the way that things are set up, many people and companies struggled to make sure that they were getting the right type of energy and oil from the areas that they were looking for it. They were unable to try and make the right choices for drilling oil because they simply could not drill oil offshore in Mexico. It was a huge problem and one that was recently solved because there are now three different companies that have come together to be able to make things different for people who want to drill in that area. They are the first companies in the past 80 years that have been allowed to do this and have been successful at it.
The oil that is set up is a combination of three different companies. There is a British company, one from the United States and one from Mexico that have come together to set up the oil rig. They are trying to make sure that they can get the best oil possible and they know that it has to be a three part operation so that they will be able to do more with it. The way that they have changed things in the past has been instrumental in that it allows them to make the right decisions and the right changes to the opportunities that they have.
Oil drilling can be complicated. Talos Energy wants to make sure that they are doing things the right way. They are the company that has come from the United States and they are a part of the oil rig that is set up offshore in Mexico. They are a premier company that was created to make things better for people and they also know what they are doing so that they can show people that there are different options available to them with oil drilling.
Casio Audi, who is mainly known for financial positions, was initially a musician. He is known to many as the Brazilian music legend, who played a vital role in the Viper Rock Music Band. The band was formed in 1985 when he joined it and was initially just two brothers and their roommates, who played music in their house. Afterward, a neighbor was also interested, and later Casio was brought in making it a complete band. Yves and Pit were brothers who grew up playing music. To them, it was just a norm to play music, albeit not for recording purposes. Felipe Machado, their roommate, also happened to have a similar interest and so did Andrew Mataso, their neighbor. Mataso would join them often as they played music just for fun.
Growing up, Casio always knew that he had a musical talent, but the hardly used it as his studies stood on the way. However, upon clearing high school, when he found this group, which was interested in music, he joined without hesitation upon the request of Andre Matos. The group released that Casio was very talented with the drums and they immediately assigned him the role of the drummer in the group.
The group attributes Casio’s discipline and commitment to the success, which they fetched over the period that they were together. Casio would sleep late pitching the ideas of the songs made by the team. He also believed that quality is what would set the Vipers Rock Music Band apart from their competition. Consequently, he kept the group members on their toes telling them to sharpen their skills to stand out from the rest of the bands. As a result, the band kept learning new things, and this helped them reach the top of the charts in their first and second albums.
If you’ve ever had a dream but not been sure about how to pursue it, or that it’s even possible to reach, let me tell you this: You can achieve your wildest dreams if you simply try and persist as a young teenage rock band in Brazil once did. Perhaps you’ve heard of Viper? Yes, this once-popular 1980s rock band ruled the nation and even the world in its time: It rocked the top charts and even fought against Nirvana and Van Halen to keep its top seat.
People from around the world bought thousands of copies of Viper’s music. What’s especially worthy of note is that Viper’s drummer, Cassio Audi, was a great inspiration to the band as a whole: Some even say that he put the band together and that his concepts were a driving force for this young, struggling group of teens. Did you know that this band began in the basement with nothing but four members and an idea? So consider that the next time you doubt your potential.
Viper began playing faithfully for local communities and, eventually, word-of-mouth spread. Though the band disunited in 1989, it’s still remember for its many unique musical tastes and mixes with metal themes and instrumental lyrics. Drummer Casio Audi is never forgotten either; his successful skills and perseverance, creativity, innovation and pursuit for excellence have launched him as a top financial advisor today. He now uses such skills and drive for excellence to further his business endeavors in Brazil.
He holds his MBA in finances as well. Do not forget him when you’re in the area. In addition, he holds multiple endorsed skills through websites like LinkedIn, Crunch Base, Google Plus, and his band videos may even be seen on YouTube. You may hear his music there as well.

NuoDB is a Structured Query Language (SQL) transactional database management system that is primarily designed for distributed deployment of information in the cloud storage service.
NuoDB was founded in the year 2008 by Barry S. Morris and Jim Starkey. The company primarily went by the name of NimbusDB but later got changed to NuoDB. Upon its release, the program was using a beta 8 version which only allowed a platform that only supported Solaris (Unix Operating System). The program has however been upgraded to the latest version (2.6) which supports table partitions, supports Amazon Web services and storage groups.
NuoDB works by communicating with application programs with the help of SQL statements just like seen in the relational database. However, unlike in relational database, NuoDB diverges from an established relational approach thanks to the presence of a three-tier structure which brings together storage, transactional, and administrative tiers. The good thing about the third-tier is the fact that NuoDB can efficiently work without necessarily closing down an application or damaging any data present in a disk drive.
With this data management program, you are guaranteed a simple logic platform, smart database storage and use, a simplified cost management, and a high demand infrastructure that keeps your business on its toes and ahead of your competitors.
Cassio Audi belongs to a clique of leaders within the Brazilian corporate marked by excellent track record, a plethora of skills and years of experience working at the top of the corporate ladder. Since graduating with his first degree from Pontifícia Universidade Católica de São Paulo, he has built a strong reputation as one of the leading company executives. At the university, Cassio Audi specialized in Business Administration. To further understand the dynamics of business administration, he enrolled at Universidade de São Paulo for his Master of Business Administration degree studies and graduated from the university in 2000. This solid background in business administration has been one of the success pillars in his checkered career. He later added numerous skills including change management, negotiation, financial planning, restructuring and financial reporting among others, to his already burgeoning professional profile.
However, unbeknown to many Cassio Audi is also an excellent drummer having spent close to four years performing with the rock and pop band, Viper. Between 1985 and 1989, he played a critical role in the arrangement, performance and writing of the band’s three songs including ‘Soldiers of Sunrise’. This is why he was able to seamlessly fit into the band in 2016 when they were performing the track.
In 1992, JP Morgan Chase hired Cassio Audi as a trader. From there, his nascent professional career found the proper grounding as he was hired by Dow Chemical four years later to serve as the senior financial analyst for the company. The upward trajectory his career had taken reached another milestone when he was brought on board by Gillette to oversee its operations in Brazil. After an excellent eight year stay at the company, Cassio Audi sought for further professional challenges in 2006 when he was appointed as the chief financial officer at the Brazilian startup, Brookfield Brasil Real Estate Partners Inc. He left the company after two excellent years and served in several companies in various executive positions with significant success.
It has been nearly 80 years ago Mexico nationalized its oil industry, which the state-run Petroleos Mexicanos has exclusively managed since 1938. Due to a struggling oil economy, Mexico opened up their waters to private industries as part of an energy reform program. In 2015 when Mexico opened its oil industry to private investment, three companies won the rights to offshore exploration during the first round of bidding. Those three companies are Premier Oil Plc from London, Talos Energy LLC from Texas, and Sierra Oil & Gas from Mexico.
The three companies began drilling on May 21, 2017, and expect drilling to take 90 days to complete. Premier Oil estimates that the Zama-1 well in the Sureste Basin contains 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil. The industry is watching the exploration with keen interest in the results.
Talos Energy operates the well and holds 35% stake in the drilling venture. This once small Houston-based company was named the best workplace among small local businesses by WorkPlaceDynamics in 2013. Although Talos started small, their acquisitions and success are leading to rapid growth. They have focused on acquiring oil and gas companies in the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast. In 2013 Talos Production LLC (a wholly owned subsidiary of Talos Energy LLC) acquired Energy Resource Technology GOM, Inc (ERT). ERT’s assets are in the Gulf of Mexico, and they experienced great success with their Wang Exploration.
Ash Shepherd, Talos’s commercial manager for Mexico at Talos Energy LLC was named a Thirty under Forty Honoree in 2016. Shepherd was closely involved in the process of Talos winning rights to offshore exploration as part of Mexico’s energy reform program. His efforts embody Talos’ strategy to apply their geological, geophysical and operating experience to acquire, exploit and explore the basin in the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico area.
With their recent acquisitions and exploration drilling, Talos should expect growth and success in the Gulf of Mexico.
