The Mexico stock market and oil sectors are bound to see dramatic changes after the Houston- based Talos Energy LLC, London’s Premier Oil Plc, and Mexican Sierra Oil & Gas drill the first private oil well in 80 years. Since 1938, the oil industry in Mexico has been under the strict state control, but due to legal changes that opened prospecting rights to private enterprises, the three companies in a joint venture got the approval to explore for oil in 2015.

Foreign Companies in Mexico Oil Sector

The offshore oil well that Talos Energy and partners are drilling in Mexico signals the readiness by the state to allow foreign companies active participation in the energy sector. In a press statement, Talos Energy indicates that the drilling process started on May 21. Previously, only the state-controlled Petroleos Mexicanos had the rights to deal in oil.

Talos Energy is a private company dealing in offshore oil and gas exploration with a keen interest in the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico. Supported by Apollo Global Management and Investment Fund, Talos Management, and Riverstone Holdings LLC, the company will have the financial and technical skills to see the Zamia 1 project through.

Talos Energy started with $600 million. Today the company can boast of having more than 60 oil professionals and 120 field staff in the Gulf Coast up from 15 in 2016. Talos Energy LLC estimates that the offshore oil well known as Zama-1 holds approximately between 100 million and 500 million barrels of crude oil. The oil companies expect to take 90 days to finish prospecting for oil in the area located in the Sureste Basin off the Tabasco region while the process will cost $16 million.

The Benefits of Mexico Energy Sector Reforms

Already, there is a lot of excitement from economic analysts about the impact that the participation of foreign private corporates in the Mexico energy segment will create. Elaine Reynolds of London’s Edison Investment Research Ltd believes that Talos Energy’s venture has “a high geological chance of success.” “Economic analysts will watch Zama-1 given its effects on the Mexican market, and as the most important well drilled this year,” says analyst Charlie Sharp, of the Canaccord Genuity Ltd.

Hope for Patients Suffering From Multiple Sclerosis

The NIAID, which is part of the National Institutes of Health sponsored the HALT-MS, a trial study on patients suffering from MS. The study kicked off in December 2014, and the results surfaced online in February 2017 in the renowned medical journal of the American Academy of Neurology. According to the results, there is evidence that a patient’s central nervous system can be affected by their immune system, upon an infestation of the autoimmune disease. According to researchers, the latter is caused when a patient is exposed to a high dosage of immunosuppressive therapy and by having their blood-forming cells transplanted.

 

According to research conducted, 69 percent of trial patients that had undergone both hematopoietic cell transplant and immunosuppressive therapy did not inhibit any signs of disability, new brain lesions or relapse of MS symptoms. According to other studies conducted, the MS drug has proven to have a low success level.

 

According to Anthony S. Fauci, NIAID Director, the reports state that a one-off treatment using HDIT/HCT could turn out to be more effective than some of the long-term methods being used by patients. He continues to say that the outcome could be a positive sign to carry out an examination to compare standard care and HDIT/HCT.

 

Some of the symptoms of MS include body weakness, fatigue, severe pain, and difficulty in speech. However, the most common symptom exhibited in most patients is relapsing. At one point during the trial study, 24 patients between the ages of 26 and 52 years volunteered to undergo a test to establish the effectiveness and safety of HDIT/HCT. However, despite being under severe medication, the patients experienced severe inflammation.

 

According to researchers, the treatment is aimed at destroying the stubborn disease cells and restoring a patient’s immune system. Despite positive results from the study patients, experts say that they need to conduct more study on the treatment method. According to Richard Nash, who served as the key investigator during the study, he says that the end-results of the study proof that the treatment could be what scientist have been seeking to find.

End Citizens United (ECU) pronounced its initial number of House approvals in the upcoming 2018 cycle. Included in the list are 19 persons who have been championing for reform in campaign finance drawn from 11 states. These initial endorsements will enable the ECU unite the chosen nominees with its grassroots members who exceed three million in number. ECU will also run its advocacy actions aimed at elevating campaign finance reform as an important campaign issue.

 

 

According to the executive director of End Citizens United, Tiffany Muller, the group aims to have its endorsed candidates form the majority of those elected into the House of Representatives in 2018. This will be the only way that the fight to ending the flaking influence of Big Money on the US democracy will be won. Tiffany added that President Trump went against his promise of “draining the swamp” by failing to bring a plan within his first 100 days in office. President Trump also brought in billionaire donors as well as leaders of commercial special interests in his administration meaning that Big Money is in control of Washington once again. The endorsed candidates will help push ECU’s agenda by taking the Big Money head on. Tiffany is optimistic that ECU will work tirelessly to ensure that its endorsed leaders triumph over the dark money assemblies and Super PACs that are trying to hijack the American democracy.

ECU Raises $4 Million and Projects a $35 Million Haul

 

ECU, a political action committee, is bent on ridding big money away from politics for the sake of democracy in the US. In order to succeed in its efforts, the ECU is raising huge amounts of money in readiness for the epic battle ahead. ECU has so far managed to raise over $4 million during the first quarter of 2017 and hopes to have raised $35 million by the time the 2018 midterm Congress elections take place. This will be a higher amount than the $25 million it spent during the 2016 elections, which was its initial operation cycle. Tiffany Muller confirmed that around 100,000 people were involved in the contributions this year and of these, 40,000 of them were donating for the first time. The group maintains that its ultimate goal is to ensure “campaign-finance transformation supporters” get elected to Congress.

 

 

Muller added that the standard donation the ECU received in 2017 was $12. A majority of the donors to the PAC share the feeling that the system is against them and only the people with the fattest checks get to call the shots. ECU offers them an avenue to fight back against the system. In addition, the Democrats are still furious with President Trump’s triumph in the 2016 elections and are ready to fight his nominees and agenda. Recently the group was raising $500,000 to support a first time candidate in Georgia, Jon Ossoff, a democrat.

Class Dojo is an App that Improves the Education Process

Many teachers are always looking for an edge in the classroom. They know that they have a lot to deal with in terms of educating students. One of the most challenging aspects of teaching is communications. Teachers and parents often do not keep in touch with one another about a student’s progress in class.

 

Parent/teacher conferences are often given during each grading period. However, if a parent decides to show up for this meeting; they are often surprised about their child’s in school performance. The fact is that a lot of parents just do not have the time to keep track of everything that is going on with their child in school.

 

Teachers know that many parents work throughout the day and it is often difficult for them to get time off to visit their school. Also, many parents have other responsibilities and concerns that they have to deal with throughout the day. So, getting up to the school to pay students a visit can be extremely challenging.

 

Class Dojo eliminates this problem. This app improves student’s education by providing their parents and teachers a more dependable way to communicate. Teachers and parents just download the Class Dojo app and then set up an account. Once they do, they can add each other into their contact list.

 

Teachers can then send video clips, text messages and photos instantly to parents to inform them about their child throughout the day. They can even set up a time to video chat over their mobile devices. This way, the expectation for meetings will not be an issue.

 

Class Dojo received $21 million in funding to help establish and set up services. This organization wants to improve the educational process for students, parents and instructors. Educators and parents should keep their eyes open for more great services coming from the Class Dojo app.

 

 

Susan McGalla Has Succeeded In a Man’s World of Business

Susan McGalla once told a Pittsburg newspaper reporter: “It was always taught that I was a person. I was not a man or a woman.”

 

That perspective gained in part from her football coach dad almost certainly helped McGalla succeed in the still male-dominated world of business where women make up just 4% of CEOs for Fortune 500 companies.

 

But McGall has served as president and CEO of two major companies.

 

After earning a business and marketing degree from University of Mount Union in Alliance, Ohio, McGalla began her career working her way up the ladder at the iconic regional department chain, Joseph Horne Company. She worked there in marketing and management until the company folded in 1994, the victim of changing economic times.

 

But when one door closes another opens, and McGalla’s talents were eagerly scooped up by American Eagle Outfitters, a company which she would one day lead as president. She started at American Eagle as a divisional merchandise buyer for women’s clothing.

 

After 14 years and a successful stint leading American Eagle Outfitters, McGalla moved forward and found her way to the helm of another clothing operation, Wet Seal, a teen clothing retailer based in Foothill Ranch, California.

 

She served as CEO for Wet Seal for just over a year before deciding to strike out on her own, founded P3 Executive Consulting.

 

Today she serves as Vice President of Business Strategy and Creative Development for the Pittsburgh Steelers. She also sits on the boards of a publicly traded real estate firm, HFF Inc., and the Magee-Womens Hospital Research Institute and Foundation.

 

Some of her other community-based activities include serving as a trustee of the University of Pittsburgh and director of the Allegheny Conference on Community Development.
