The contribution of Eloise Monaghan
Before 2006, two friends met for a bottle of champagne at a bar. Eloise Monaghan, while drinking with his friend, kept seeing ladies wearing unpleasant lingerie. The dissatisfaction that Eloise expressed in the lingerie pushed him to develop their brand. In 2006, Mr. Monaghan decided to create a lingerie brand that would be satisfactory to him. His target market was the Brisbane town. At the beginning of his venture, Eloise did not have plans of taking the brand global. His focus was the town and maybe other parts of Australia. Within a few years, the brand received a lot of recognition in the country. Deciding to go online with the products, the external market gained interest in the product. His lingerie did not only attract people within the country but also around the United States and the UK.

Talos Energy Stakes its Claim in Mexican Waters

The Talos Energy oil and gas company, lead by a professional management team with significant experience in offshore production as well as offshore exploration, has recently secured a deal with the Mexican government to help oversee the first privately owned oil rig to be constructed in Mexican waters in almost eight decades.

With a strong track record in regards to offshore oil production and a strong focus on oil and gas, Talos Energy has become specialists in the offshore exploration and production industries, as well as the development of deepwater assets and acquisition of exploitable assets to be optimized. In addition, the company has specializations in bleeding-edge seismic technologies as well as deepwater and offshore exploration. Their recent joint effort with other companies has the potential to pay significant dividends and could make history as the first privately owned oil rig in the past eight decades to be built and operated in Mexican waters.

The Venture

As the most recent step in the country’s drive to increase foreign competition on their energy markets, and drive business back to Mexico, this venture marks the first time in nearly eight decades that private companies have been allowed to operate a brand new offshore oil well located in Mexican owned waters.

As a joint operation between Talos Energy LLC, Premier Oil PLC, and Sierra Oil & Gas, this operation is the first time an offshore exploration well has been launched by any entity other than Petroleos Mexicanos since 1938, when the country completed nationalization of its oil industry.

The venture first began in 2015 when all three of the companies mentioned won the rights to the prospect in the initial round of bidding immediately after the Mexican government voted to open its energy and oil industries to private corporations. The well, designated as Zama-1 and located off the state of Tabasco in the Sureste Basin is estimated to hold anywhere between 100 million and 500 million barrels of crude oil.

Talos Energy holds a 35% stake in the venture, as well as being the primary operator of the well. The pressure to perform well is immense, as, depending on the success of this joint venture, the implications for the energy industry in Mexico could be massive. If the venture is successful, it could also pave the way for further privatization of the Mexican energy industry.

Prostate Cancer Treatments & The CTCA

In October 2015, the Administration Food and Drug Administration finally approved the high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) to treat prostate cancer, nearly two decades after being approved by regulatory agencies in Asian countries and Europe.

doctors that the procedure, two hours, is minimally invasive say. Patients return home the same day and can continue with their normal activities. HIFU treatment may be partial, it focused on the overall tissue damage, or if the cancer is affecting the entire prostate.

Instead of using radiation, HIFU uses ultrasound energy to destroy the affected tissue. Ultrasound waves are directed to the area of prostate cancer that is then the temperature at the top of the probe insertion is increased to 90 degrees Celsius to destroy diseased tissue. The fabric in the outside of the injury remains intact.

In addition to skin cancer, prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer among men, with about 240,000 new cases reported each year, according to the American Cancer Society. At thee International HIFU Center in South Miami, the cost of treatment is $ 25,000. Suarez said that the likelihood of needing a second treatment is rare.

Prior to FDA approval, insurance companies usually do not cover the cost of treatment, claiming it was experimental. With FDA approval, insurance still do not cover, but may do so in the future due to certain criteria that the Cancer Treatment Centers of America has set in place for all effective methods of curing cancer. This condition may even permit holistic methods of eradicating cancer as well.

Of the 240,000 men are diagnosed annually with prostate cancer in the United States, a third party will select surgery. CTCA (Cancer Treatment Centers Of America) use 4D radiation therapy, immunotherapy and even hormone therapy to correct prostate cancer. For those that will select radiation CTCA has many other alternatives, some of which have been proven to be more effective.
