Talos Energy: Drilling for Oil

The energy sector of Mexico has just opened their doors once again for foreign corporations to do business in their country. Just recently, a new oil well was installed in the waters of the Gulf of Mexico. The construction of this new oil well and the exploration of the area was a joint venture between three giant oil companies – Premier Oil PLC which is based in London, United Kingdom; Talos Energy LLC, which is based in Houston, Texas; and Sierra Oil & Gas, which is based in Mexico. The energy sector of Mexico has closed its doors to foreign competitors 80 years ago, but all of it will start to change. A recent study conducted in the waters off the Gulf of Mexico has shown that there might be between 100 million to 500 million barrels of crude oil hidden within its deep waters. The oil well is located near the city of Tabasco, and the drilling can last up to 90 days.

 

Talos Energy LLC is a Texas based, independent oil research and exploration company that has been operating in the Gulf of Mexico for several years now. The company holds 35% of the participation interest, and by using their state-of-the-art technology, they have been successful in locating oil reserves and drilling them. The team has set up in the Gulf of Mexico earlier this year, and in July 12, 2017, Talos Energy LLC successfully located the oil in one of the largest discoveries ever documented. The exploration resulted into a successful discovery of about 1.4 billion to 2.0 billion barrels of crude oil, which is far greater than what was previously thought of. The three oil companies will soon start drilling the oil from the Gulf of Mexico, and they could not hide their gratitude towards the contribution of one another.

 

Talos Energy LLC is delighted that their technology once again proved that it has a high rate of success when searching for oil. They will be setting up the drilling well weeks after their discovery, and Talos Energy LLC will be contracting another company to search for oil.

Cassio Audi and the Vipers Band

Does it sound unusual having the name Cassio Audi and Vipers Band together in the same sentence? You shouldn’t be astounded. Audio started off as a musician in the 1980s. Together with a group of other four local teenagers, Audi formed a heavy metal band known as Vipers. The five teenagers’ choice of music genre was heavily influenced by a British band, “Iron Maiden.” The Vipers began by performing in local shows before going ahead to produce some demo songs.

Audi played a key role in composing songs, and they were able to produce their first album, the Killer Sword. The album was regarded as a demo album and performed quite well in the local music scene. The group now had the responsibility of quenching the thirst of their new found fan base. The band later released a refined album which immediately propelled them into the limelight. The album still went the title Killer Sword, a title that became synonymous with the band.
Although he was a composer, Audi’s was the band’s drummer. As the group continued to grow, he became a more skilled drummer earning respect from fans and the metal music fraternity. He was also actively involved in the marketing of the Vipers across various parts of the continent and abroad.
By 1989, when Audi left the Vipers, they had three albums with the addition of Soldiers of Sunrise and Theatre of Fate. Additional records were matched by an increasingly growing fan base. They were now performing in shows beyond the borders further earning international popularity. They also won admiration from producers from abroad for their remarkable talent. The early members including Cassio Audi seem to have built a solid base for the band’s existence. It is probably a trait he has utilized in his journey as a successful investment specialist.

NantHealth and Cancer Treatment Centers of America Establish a Collaborative Alliance

In February, the Cancer Treatment Centers of America announced a collaborative alliance with NantHealth called Clinical Pathways. This unifying program will help erase trial and error research, by providing oncology professionals with up to date information and awareness of all progressive advances in cancer research.

 

This will help physicians and patients work together to coordinate safe and effective treatment options. Clinical pathways is focused on the patient aspect of cancer treatment as much as it is about connecting cancer researchers. It will seamlessly assimilate essential records automatically into the doctor’s electronic health record (EHR).

 

Cancer patients will now be able to rely on their physician’s decisions to implement treatment programs unique to their situation. It is a welcome change from the restrictive and impersonal one-size fits all approach. With cancer research evolving on a daily basis, it has become essential to arm oncologists with current information. Through the Clinical Pathways program they will have access to clinically supported data, response statistics and problems encountered with particular treatment drugs.

 

This news reinforces the Cancer Treatment Centers of America theory that no two patients are alike and no two cancers are alike. Since the first Cancer Treatment Center was opened in 1988, they have consistently endeavored to personalize every treatment plan.

 

They have been at the forefront of cancer research throughout their history, as the focus exclusively on nothing but cancer. Cancer Treatment Centers of America have evolved as cancer research and treatment have evolved. This new patient-focused program is another step towards beating cancer.
The battle against cancer is ongoing and a fight that affects the lives of thousands. Clinical Pathways is a coordinated effort to prioritize the patient’s needs and provide a more efficient method of treatment. It acknowledges that no two situations are alike and allows for individuality and consistency in the treatment of cancer.

Sujit Choudhry’s Research Helps Countries To Build Constitutions

The study of variances and similarities between legal systems in different countries is called comparative law. This study can include many different legal systems like Canon law, religious-based laws, civil law, socialist law, and common law. Comparative law includes analyzing and describing legal systems even if there is no obvious comparison. This study of legal systems has become more and more important with the emergence of economic globalization, internationalism, and democratization.

 

 

Comparative law involves studying different legal systems and their constitutive elements. It also includes analyzing how these elements different and how they are combined into the legal system in question. With the importance of comparative law growing, many disciplines have developed into separate branches within the study. These individual branches include comparative administrative law, comparative criminal law, comparative commercial law, comparative civil law, and comparative constitutional law.

 

 

The study of legal systems can have many uses. Comparative law can be used to help contribute to unifying legal systems, to help perfect the legal systems in question, and to gather a deeper understanding of these legal systems. Comparative law can also be used in combination with other fields like sociology, law, and economics to help determine how laws affect economies within the legal system or how varying legal systems affect the culture and people within the society.
