For the first time since the 1930s, Mexico is allowing private companies to dig oil wells in their waters. This decision was made after Mexico voted to bring back some competition into their energy market so that they could revive it. Up until this time, the oil industry in Mexico had been dominated by the Petroleos Mexicanos. Premier Oil from London, Sierra Oil And Gas from Mexico, and Talos Energy from Houston are working together on bring private companies back into the game.
They are going to be working on the Zama-1 well which is found in the Sureste Basin just off of Tabasco, the state. Talos Energy is the operator of the well and they have a 35 percent stake in the exploration. Premier Oil has a 25 percent stake and Sierra Oil & Gas has the largest stake at 40 percent. It will take about 3 months for the exploration to be completed and during that time Premier Oil expects to spend $16 million in order to fund the project. Everyone seems to be watching the project with a high amount of interest because they are curious to see how it affects the energy market in Mexico. Many people believe it will be hugely beneficial not only to the companies involved, but the oil industry as well.
Talos Energy recently acquired Energy Resource Technology which is a subsidiary of Helix Energy Solutions. This followed Energy Resource Technology’s great success in the Wang exploration. During that project they were able to find more than 100 feet of crude oil stored in the Phoenix Field of the Green Canyon Block. Talos Energy is pleased with this deal because it put them into a great position to expand into a larger and more success E&P company on the lower Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico.
Talos Energy was also recently awarded by WorkplaceDynamic for being a great place to work. They give every single one of their employees a piece of equity within the company. With this accomplishment and their work on Zama-1, they are on the road to great success.

More than 20 Years but Still Remembered – Cassio Audi and the Band
Though it’s been more than 20 years since Casio Audi has been a member of Viper, he still remembers his music roots to this very day. He is now regarded as a top finance expert in Brazil’s best business practices though he often recalls a time in which his long, flowing hair and his taste in heavy-metal rock were what consumed his life and priorities. Today, it’s quite a different story as he has thousands of clients and hungry business partners every day.
He once remembers when he, along with three other teenage boys, formed a band and traveled the world in pursuit of spreading its message. The team of talented Brazilian teenagers sold more than 10,000 copies of their music albums, along with countless autographs and signatures. They started small, forming a group from their own basement. Eventually, they localized, and their music became known in each surrounding community.
Eventually, Good Turned Into Great, and Great Turned Into Excellent – Go, Viper! You Rock!
With time and persistence, they were known around the nation for their songs and, eventually, the world. There was even a time in which Nirvana and Van Halen, top singers of their day, competed for the top spot, with Viper at the very top. Even though these young men did not speak English, they still managed to tour the U.S. and produce their music titled in English, along with invaluable lyrics translated for their thousands of U.S. fans.

Did you know that doctors can now treat cancer patients with more targeted treatment? Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA), recently entered into close working relationship with Allscripts. Additionally, Nanthealth is also a part of this partnership to bring you the most targeted treatment possible. The study and input of numerous oncologists has been added to this database, giving the CTCA the chance to treat patients with what studies show have worked best for a specific type of cancer, rather than approaching treatment on a trial basis to see if it works.
The new Clinical Pathways database is giving doctors the ability to take the guesswork out of cancer treatment, and is giving the patient more control in choosing their treatment plan along with their doctor. This evidence-based approach will save both the patient and the doctor their time back as well as the hope that they are getting a quicker road to recovery. The integration of Clinical Pathways is the first of its kind, working on the eviti platform along with Allscripts Sunrise. The entire clinical workflow is present in this system, and should lead to more successful cancer care.
George Daneker, the Chief Medical Officer of CTCA discussed the benefits of the Clinical Pathways database in a recent interview. The goal is to eliminate guesswork, and find the most targeted treatment before starting the treatment process. This is welcome news for all involved in the entire cancer treatment process.
CTCA currently operates five hospitals within their network that are dedicated to caring for the whole person during the course of their cancer treatment. The headquarters for CTCA are in Boca Raton, Florida, and is focused on evidence-based plans including genomic testing and precision surgery and other treatment.

NuoDB is a database management technology that builds on features of traditional SQL to come up with a new SQL database that supports cloud computing. When installed in a system, NuoDB software sends commands to other programs and applications using SQL statements. Despite being almost similar to traditional database management systems, however, NuoDB structure incorporate tires, such as storage, administrative, and. This structure enables it to support cloud database computing.
A database genius, Jim Starkey, masterminded NuoDB. He joined hands with Barry S Morris, another tech genius, to develop the software in 2008. The two opened a company in Cambridge, Massachusetts and named it NimbusDB. The company, which was later rebranded to NuoDB, has since been developing, marketing, and distributing NuoDB software. The software is developed in series, some of them being NuoDB 1.0, NuoDB 1.5, NuoDB 2.0, NuoDB 2.3 and so on. Early this year, the company released a new series, NuoDB 2.6.
NuoDB’s Financial Position
By last year, NuoDB had received funding to the tune of $58 million. Some of the main financiers include Hummer Winblad Venture Partners, Dassault Systèmes, Morgenthaler Ventures, and Longworth Venture Partners. The funding came in three rounds in 2012, 2014, and 2016. Currently, the company provides employment to over 85 employees.
NuoDB is the new database solution that has everybody in the tech industry buzzing. At this point in time, there are already many SQL-oriented databases available. What makes this database so unique is the fact that it is designed to maximize efficiency whilst running on large scale clusters.
Cluster computing is not anything new, but very few pieces of software have efficiently utilized it. NuoDB has taken this cryptic sector of technology and utilized it for cloud computing software development.
Cloud-based applications at a large scale will need the reliability of multiple backups in the event of hardware failure. Because of this, many large companies now rely on this transactional database management system. Kodiak, Alfa Systems, and the UAE Exchange are prime examples of satisfied customers of NuoDB.
Originally, NuoDB was supposed to be named NimbusDB by their creators. They completely reformed the project in 2011 when they finalized their name. Within time, the project had gained popularity, especially after gaining their first patent in 2012. Venture capital firms have pitched over $59 million in funding due to the unique nature of the software. Some of the venture capital firms have even implemented the database within their own web projects.
