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.

Cancer Treatment Centers of America is partnering with Allscripts and NantHealth to introduce a brand new platform, which will ease the burden of oncologists and help patients make better, more informed decisions about their treatment programs. Called Clinical Pathways, the new oncology treatment platform customizes its uses for each user. Cancer Treatment Centers of America will be incorporating Clinical Pathways in an effort to streamline the cancer treatment process for patients without adding to the workload of participating oncologists.
George Daneker, Jr., M.D. is a Chief Medical Officer at Cancer Treatment Centers of America at Southeastern Regional Medical Center. He says Clinical Pathways will improve patient treatment by presenting all viable treatment options, while distinguishing the proven methods from new data and research that may require further study.
“We created an ecosystem of treatment options, customized to the CTCA standard of care, for patients to review and choose from that’s safe and efficient,” says Dr. Daneker.
Clinical Pathways will customize its interface for each patient, determining the best options for that patient’s state of health and the stage of his/her illness. Treatment options, including costs, will then be presented to the patient with an option to buy right on the screen.
Clinical Pathways will also provide patients with all relevant information for each treatment, including guidelines, response rates, drug reactions and side effects, and toxicity.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a for-profit organization that operates through a network of five hospitals in the United States, though they are based out of Boca Raton, Florida. The organization promotes conventional cancer treatments to its patients, including surgery, chemotherapy, radiation, and immunotherapy. Additionally, Cancer Treatment Centers of America integrates programs that help patients manage the side effects of cancer treatment. Such programs help alleviate pain, nausea, fatigue, lymphedema, malnutrition, depression, and anxiety in cancer patients.

Cancer Care Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) is a national group of five hospitals that treat cancer. They have announced a partnership between them, NantHealth, and Allscripts which will create a program named Clinical Pathways. This program will help streamline the cancer treatment process and better inform doctors of treatment options for each individual patient.
As part of the partnership, NantHealth will provide their clinical support solution which is named eviti. eviti was developed by using the input of oncologists across the United States which documents all types of cancer treatment options. Tying into this will be Allscripts Sunrise platform which is an electronic health record database.

The program will also compare different treatment options, including how much each typically costs.
Cancer Care Treatment Centers of America was established in 1988.

One of the most devastating diseases facing our society today has destroyed more lives than some wars with a fall out that not only includes physical pain but an emotional upheaval that often leaves patients reeling from the emotional hit.
Though devastating as cancer is for those that receive a diagnosis as well as those closest to them, researchers and doctors have made giant leaps in treating the disease beyond simply removing cancerous cells.
The Emotional Struggle of a Cancer Diagnosis and Cancer Treatments Centers of America Push for Complete Health for Women
As cancer wreaks havoc on many of the vital systems necessary for a complete and whole life, the emotional toll of having to battle against the disease simultaneously erodes patients strength and hope which are essential more so than ever for those battling for their lives.
As the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has become a leader within the medical community known for providing patients with not only top of the line care but a safe environment to help foster healing beyond cancer’s remission they have implemented programs that aim to heal some of the unseen scars cancer often leaves behind. So in partnership with the ACA, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America created an outreach program designed to help women who have received a cancer diagnosis navigate the new terrain of maintaining their self-esteem and hope in spite of the physical ravages caused by cancer.
The program brings together cosmetic experts and patients for group discussions about make-up tips, ways to conceal hair loss, as well as maintaining general emotional well-being throughout the entire process.

People who succeed in life start showing signs at an early age. Since his time in college, Christopher Burch has always been interested in fashion, design and investments. 40 years later, he has established himself as one of the most successful business person in the United States of America. Currently, he serves as the CEO as well as the founder of a company called Burch Creative Capital. During this time, he has also been involved with other companies such as Poppin, Trademark as well as DeGeneres, Voss Water, and Jawbone. Chris Burch has also been involved with other ventures such as Nihiwatu, Cocoon9 and finally Faena Hotel + Universe.
To explain his success, Chris, and his brother established their first venture using $2000. They referred to this company as the Eagles Eye Apparel but later sold the company at an estimated $165 million. Chris Burch attended the Itchica College for his undergraduate degree. Just recently, he had the opportunity of discussing the relationship that exists between fashion and technology. During this discussion, Chris Burch explained that the best way to understand the relationship between these two industries is looking at their future, present, and even the past. Remarkable differences exist between these two industries. The only thing that has remained constant is that they continue to evolve together.
For this analogy, Chris uses the changes that have taken place in the music industry. According to Chris Burch, the boom box of the 1970s allowed people listen to their favorite music whenever they wished. This was then followed by the disc cassette where people would listen to music on one side and record on the other. He then explains how the Walkman revolutionized the music industry. Finally, he talks about the way the iPod has changed things lately.
Chris acknowledges that there are fashion designers who are using technology to come up with amazing designs. He says that the only way to understand the future of fashion is to use technology. For instance, fashion designers have created good air bags that can be used by bike rider instead of the traditional helmets. These airbags are fashionable and only get deployed in case of an accident.
