Dr. Sergio Cortes‘ long, distinguished career in the medical profession began when he was the official doctor for the Brazilian men’s volleyball team. He held this position for ten years before becoming the General Director of the National Institute of Traumatology and Orthopedics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. Dr. Cortes presided over the institute, which specializes in treating complex orthopedic injuries and diseases, for over four years. Being the director of a prestigious orthopedic institute was the ideal position for Dr. Cortes, since he trained as an orthopedic surgeon and attended Harvard Business School. Dr. Cortes’ continued interest in orthopedic medicine, despite his advancing career in administration and public health, is evident by posts on his personal blog.
For seven years, Dr. Sergio Cortes served as the State Health Secretary of Rio de Janeiro. He dealt with varies health crises, including dehydration and mosquito maturation from flooding in Xerém, Duque de Caxias. As reported by Extra, Dr. Cortes’s main concern was diseases caused by people drinking contaminated water, such as diarrhea and hepatitis A.
After the flooding in Xerém, Dr. Cortes worried about cases of dengue fever caused by the Aedes aegypti mosquito proliferation that occurs when standing water accumulates. Even though he is no longer Health Secretary, Dr. Cortes is concerned with Zika virus, which is responsible birth defects in infants whose mothers contracted the virus while pregnant. The same mosquito responsible for dengue fever also carries the Zika virus, however, for expectant mothers in Brazil, the consequences of the Zika virus are so severe that the World Health Organization is now involved. Dr. Cortes’ blog contains tips for avoiding mosquitoes, which he urges all pregnant women to follow.
Currently, according to CrunchBase, cortes is the Executive Director of Rede D’Or Sao Luiz, Brazil’s largest hospital operator, which owns 27 private hospitals and manages two other hospitals. While Sergio Cortes calls himself an orthopedic surgeon, it is obvious by examining his career that he is much more than a doctor specializing in orthopedics .To learn more about Dr. Cortes’ career accomplishments, follow him on LinkedIn or follow Cr. Cortes on Twitter for updates on current health news.
Slyce has had a robust quarter according to a wrap-up that was published on Yahoo Finance. Over the fall they signed several contractors with top retailers including Neiman Marcus, Shoes.com and Urban Outfitters and this helped propel them into the new year.
AS of February 10th, Slyce removed its short form offerings and instead accepted a $7 million private financing offer from a lead investor that has purchased as much as $5 million of the company units. The company is still taking subscriptions from this same lead investor as well as others but is nearing the end of its financing period.
Over the course of 2015 Slyce focused on developing their product by adding more to its image recognition option. They also have been busy introducing new ways that visual search can be used. In particular, the company focused on making a system that is easy to be used by new customers by making simple onboard integration. They were able to do this by packaging products to work with a unified Software Development Kit and by creating product feeds that are automated.
They also made many more technology achievements including technology such as the Slyce Link that is a platform for retail customers. It is currently in beta testing. Another achievement was the universal scanner which is embedded in any retailer app and allows people to scan not only barcodes, but also catalogues, flyers, and physical objects. They also released a spattering of apps over the year including Craves, Pounce, and added the Scout service to its SnipSnap app.
Last year Slyce had a great close to the fiscal year closing out the year on Oct. 31st with a total revenue of about $1,700,000 which is a 1784% increase compared to Oct. 31st of 2014 when they reported revenues of just $89,800. In addition, recurring revenue is beginning to expand due to client integration and continual deployment of new technology.
Recurring revenue for the year increased up to $409,000. Losses were also down for the company painting a very promising picture for Slyce as it continues to grow.
Billionaire industrialist Charles Koch appears to be at the opposite end of the political spectrum from democratic presidential candidate Bernie Sanders, but Koch does agree with him on a couple of issues. Koch wrote in a recent Op-Ed piece in the Washington post that there are issues where he agrees with Sanders, a self proclaimed democratic socialist.
Charles Koch and his family run Koch Enterprises, a petroleum company in Wichita, Kansas that has worldwide holdings. They are listed as the second wealthiest family in the nation. Koch also has a history of supporting republican candidates, and he is a strong libertarian. He believes and promotes free market economics and wants as little governmental involvement as possible, both in business and in people’s lives.
But Charles Koch said in the writing that he agrees with Sanders that growing income inequality is a major problem, and that the criminal justice system needs reform. While he agrees with Sanders on these issues, the two are very different in how they want to address these issues.
Koch wrote that history has shown a bigger and more costly federal government has actually put the disadvantaged in a position where they are less likely to improve their lives. This is the reason he opposes most social programs that people like Sanders support. They do agree that there is a problem, and that it is getting worse, but they are still far apart on how to address those issues.
Koch is a consistent libertarian though. He also opposes corporate welfare as that tends to put the government in a position of picking winners and losers. he is consistent in thinking less government involvement is better for everyone. He opposed ethanol subsidies, for instance, even though they would have benefited his company that is involved in that industry.
Koch wrote also that the wealthy are more easily able to get out of things like drug charges, and he agrees with Sanders that this is wrong. He thinks it is also wrong that a conviction would hold a person back even after they have paid their debt to society. As a result his company has stopped asking applicants if they have ever been convicted of a crime.
Koch said he was happy to see Sanders speaking out for those struggling to get ahead, and opposing a system that favors the rich over the poor. But he said expanding the government’s role is not the answer.

Avi Weisfogal has spent much of his professional life helping people smile confidently and feel better about themselves which makes them more successful in life. Operation Smile is one program that will change the lives of people all over the world as they provide surgical options to children and young adults who suffer from physical deformities such as cleft lips, cleft palates or other facial deformities that can be surgically repaired. Weisfogal created a GoFundMe campaign to raise money to fund the service so they can give a healthy and happy future to youngsters in areas that may not have access to medical care.
has been speaking to all who will listen to raise awareness of the issue and to spread his opinion that every child deserves to have access to exceptional surgical care. He firmly believes that every child should be treated as if they were his own and that means that nothing should stop them from creating a successful life. Facial deformities can limit opportunities and even keep people from getting certain jobs. Operation Smile provides kids with hope that no matter what life throws at them, they will be able to overcome it. Providing hope to thousands is one of Weisfogel’s major motivations in creating and raising funds for the project.
Local hospitals, medical professionals, governments and other organizations have combined to create a number of models that will address a number of surgical care situations. With such a strong, unified group of support, they are able to identify the solutions that will be most effective in reaching and helping as many people as possible. These missions sponsored by Operation Smile are conducted all over the world, providing the experts and funding that works with local healthcare providers to aid children with physical deformities. This makes sure that language or custom is never an issue because of the local guidance.
Operation Smile was founded by Kathy and Bill Magee in 1982 in the Phillipines. That organization has grown to cover the globe and has attracted many talented healthcare providers to work tirelessly to complete their mission of happy, smiling faces everywhere. So far it is estimated that the program has provided over 220,000 free surgical procedures in over 80 different countries. They also work to provide well trained local professionals so that the treatment can continue on its own. It is difficult to know how many people have been helped through Operation Smile, but it is clear that it is growing each year.
Avi Wiesfogel was born and raised in New Jersey, and lived there his whole life. That is why he decided to establish his practice in the area. He attended New York College of Dentistry and graduated in 1997. After his residency he established a practice in New Jersey that has led to now having several different locations. Weisfogel is a continuing education enthusiast and is required to take continuing education classes every two years. If there is a better way to perform a procedure or treat a dental problem, he wants to know about it.
It was this enthusiastic pursuit of the best treatment for all patients that led Wiesfogel to become involved in Operation Smile and start the fund raising campaign to grow the program even further. Listening to Weisfogul there is no doubt that if it is left up to his enthusiasm and knowledge the world will have nothing but smiling faces with bright futures ahead of them.

There has been a rapid growth being realized in the New York real estate industry. This industry has been dynamic and many changes have been realized in it. Companies are now innovating new ways of reaching the buyers without having to spend much on brokers. However, the real estate brokerage companies have proved to be the determining factors in the industry. It will be more than hard for anyone to make to the buyer without going through a brokerage company in the New York City Apartments for rent and real esate . Brokers are however getting the need to be more self-sufficient. The self sufficiency that the seller and buyers are demanding form the brokers is for them to be able to market the property using a good network which belongs to them. The best companies however use their own agents and limit the chances of brokers being any influential in their businesses.
Town residential is a company that has all the expertise needed by buyers in getting the kind of houses they need without having to strain much. The company was founded in the year 2010 by Heiberger. It has therefore seen a big growth from the time in which it was founded. Heiberger is also the founder of another real estate based company by name Citi Habitats. Citi Habitats was founded ten years ago. It is still running its real estate brokerage service and is known to be among the top companies in New York real estate.
Town Residential properties are found in Brooklyn, Manhattan and other parts of city. Other companies might have been attracted into investing in New York because of the high prices in this city. The problem that such companies have suffered is the high risks that come with doing business in the city. Agents need symposiums and massive training exercises for them to be able to market real estate property and come out with the threshold number of sales. Heiberger believes that selling luxury condos and other posh real estate properties should not be done through the discount mode. Town Residential therefore uses the trick so as to stay alive in the industry.
