Talos Energy on the Gulf Coast

The Mexican government nationalized oil mining over 80 years ago and closed the oil and gas industry from private investment. The 1938 decision was reversed in an electoral vote back in 2012 to aid the ailing energy industry from the state-run monopoly of Petroleos Mexicanos. Immediately after, bids were made for companies and joint ventures to secure the right to explore the Zama-1 Well. A bid by three companies who intended to pursue the prospect as a joint venture sailed through. The three companies were;

Premier Oil Plc (based in London),

Talos Energy LLC (American and Houston-based),

And Mexican Sierra Oil and Gas.

The companies already had an agreement that described how they would split the costs and revenue shares. The Mexican company was entitled to 44 percent, the American company was entitled to 35 percent and the British company was entitled to 25 percent.

The commercial news world reacted boisterously to the new development of the lucrative oil prospecting contract on the Zama-1 Well. The Mexican government was also very firm in asserting that they would keenly follow the drilling to ensure that compliance would be upheld to protect the Mexican marine ecology. Such concerns were genuinely placed as the Zama-1 Well sits in the Sureste Basin. However, the fact that the oil well sits in the Sureste Basin also meant that the prospect had better geological chances of success because of the favorable structure of the basin.

The drilling expedition was estimated to take the three companies about 90 days to complete. According to tax reports, the joint venture had set aside over 16 million dollars for drilling alone. Talos energy and its partners estimate that the well holds about 200 to 500 barrels of crude oil.

Talos Energy LLC

Talos Energy is the winner of the 2013 WorkplaceDynamics’ Best Workplace among Local Small Businesses. It has always received praise from its main investor and regulator, Apollo Global Management, for having the most efficient and motivated employees in the American oil industry. It is a private company that focuses on prospecting for oil and acquiring oil properties in the Mexican Gulf and the Gulf Coast for exploitation. The company’s human resource department claims that it has an equity program where it allows its geologists and other specialist to share equity for any major oil discoveries that they make.

Clay Siegall follows dream, invents new class of cancer treatment drugs

Cancer treatment has traditionally entailed some of the most brutal regimes in medicine today. From radical surgery to radiation and chemotherapy, cancer treatment, since at least the 1930s, has been a torturous trial of endurance for any patient unlucky enough to receive a cancer diagnosis. Oftentimes, even the milder treatments, such as low dosage chemotherapies, will leave the patient with lasting deficits, such as neuropathy, dementia and other long-term neurological disorders.

However, there is a huge reward that has come with these terrible treatment. Cancer survival rates have increased dramatically over the last 70 years. Some cancers, which once were nearly always fatal, are now almost always curable, with five-year survival rates exceeding 99 percent. Prior to the 1930s, most diagnoses of cancer were tantamount to a death sentence. Few patients lived more than a couple of years.

Still, many types of cancer today do not have significantly better survival rates than they did 30 or 40 years ago. This is due largely to the fact that the three pillars of cancer treatment, surgery, radiation and chemotherapy essentially stopped getting better around the year 1960. While there have been certain improvements with some subtypes of cancer, many others have not seen any notable increases in survivability in the last 50 years.

But that began to change in the mid-1990s. Clay Siegall is one of the key players in developing the new class of drugs known as targeted cancer therapies. Most targeted therapies use the principle of targeting the malignancy directly, only releasing cytotoxic chemicals upon contact with the actual cancer cells. This reduces the worst side effects caused by chemotherapy, which is a medicinal blunt instrument, oftentimes releasing large amounts of poison directly into the bloodstream.

Aside from the near elimination of side effects, targeted cancer therapies are also able to dramatically increase the therapeutic window, allowing for much higher doses of cytotoxin and much more effective treatments.

Through his firm, Seattle Genetics, Dr. Siegall is continuing to develop this exciting new category of cancer treatment drugs, ensuring that the 21st century will see dramatic improvements in survivability of many subtypes of cancer.

Where Does WR Martavis Bryant Rank in Fantasy Football Rankings?

Last season was supposed to be a star-making year for Pittsburgh Steelers WR Martavis Bryant. In 2016, fantasy football rankings showed that fans believed he would make the jump from on-the-field player to a legitimate WR1 threat. And last season he showed some signs that he was becoming that 6’4”, 211 lb legit WR1 threat—that is, until he failed a second drug test and was suspended for the remainder of the season.

For Bryant to make an impact, he has to stay on the field! Whether it’s injuries or drugs, Bryant has missed 23 of the last 54 games.

Right now, fantasy football rankings have Martavis Bryant ranked around 30th in the wide receiver category.

End Citizens United Has HUGE First Quarter Fundraising Numbers

End Citizens United has a mission ahead of them and it may be one that is impossible to accomplish. Still, the team at End Citizens United are determined to make a difference in Washington D.C. when it comes to the problem of dark money pervading the world of politics. It is no secret that politicians are bought and paid for, at some level, by big money. You can see Republican Senators who receive millions of dollars in campaign funding from oil companies who will immediately go out and fight against clean energy for no other reason than a paycheck. Dark money is attacking the foundation of America and it may be up to End Citizens United to make the big difference.

 

End Citizens United is a political action committee that was founded in response to the 2010 Supreme Court Ruling which revolved around a conservative group by the name of Citizens United. Citizens United fought with the Supreme Court in order to loosen the strict financial regulations surrounding campaign financing. The results? The Supreme Court listened for some reason and now more and more politicians are being bought off, thus creating huge complications for Americans everywhere. Why would a politician stand behind their constituents if they get a check from a big oil company?

 

Tiffany Muller points to the election of Donald Trump in 2016 as a turning point in the work of her PAC. End Citizens United has seen an unprecedented raise in terms of donations and activity since Trump’s election and the reasons are pretty clear: people are furious that an unqualified big spender could get elected. President Trump has continued to blaze the destructive path of big money by hiring lobbyists at every level to work within the White House. Muller and her supporters at End Citizens United know that the very basic tenets of a free government are at stake here and that has given some sense of urgency to her task.

 

End Citizens United has seen record breaking donations over the first quarter of 2017 and those numbers are expected to continue rising. Through the first quarter of the fiscal year the team at End Citizens United saw over 100,000 donations pour into the PAC. Of those 100,000 donations, nearly half of them were from first time supporter. Having a huge influx of first time supporters is absolutely integral to a long living and successful PAC.

 

With supporters coming out in huge numbers Muller knows that it is time for her PAC to really get to work. End Citizens United has gone on to endorse 11 top Democrats who are all ready and willing to push the fight against Citizens United ahead of the 2018 Congressional Elections.

 

Rocketship Schools Allow Parents to Interview Teachers Before Hiring

Rocketship schools which have gained notorious attention nationwide for their high student scores from the opening year in 2007 and have since opened schools across the US despite being based and founded in California. The school also has a unique policy of allowing parents to help interview teachers and provide input on who should be hired to teach their children. If you think about it, it really does make sense. These parents are sending children to these schools to allow them to have some sort of say in the programs that go on there and who is doing the teaching only makes sense.

Preston Smith who is the CEO of the Rocketship schools believes this is not a rare phenomenon and that it should be common practice at all schools around the country. The school either has the teacher interviewed by 3-6 selected parents who undergo training to help do panel interviews on teachers and others hold “town hall” style meetings that allow many parents to meet teachers and ask questions of them before providing input on if they feel that teacher should be able to teach their child.

These meetings are only done once finalist candidates are selected for teaching roles.

This can work out well for everyone in several ways. The parents feel better knowing who will be working with their children and will be able to defy if this is where they want their children to go to learn. Sometimes, teachers can also get a feel if the parents and the population of the school are the right fit for them far as teaching will go. Everyone gets to know each other and that helps everyone understand what they are getting into in the first place.

One teacher has decided she is not ready for the high levels of interactions with the parents so she walks out and decides this job is not for her. It helped a teacher make a right choice. The feedback parents provide the school will also really help the school choose teachers that provide the students with the best education that align with their upbringing and family views than they would if parents were not involved in that process. Parents site loving this idea that the school allows them to decide who is going to interact with their children and to provide them with a sense of what their child will be learning and who their role models will be.
