Prostate cancer is rampant in men who are 65 years or older. The American Cancer Society estimates that there will be over 164,000 new prostate cancer cases in 2018. Mitt Romney recently announced that he has undergone prostate surgery having been diagnosed earlier this year. Other political figures who have undergone successful prostate surgery are Collin Powell in 2003 and former presidential candidate John Kerry in 2002.
The best prostate Cancer Treatment
According to Dr. David Samadi, it is essential for a urologist to discuss the advantages and disadvantages of both surgery and radiation treatments with a patient. Men who are diagnosed with prostate cancer are advised to seek qualified and experienced oncologist who will guide them in the journey of overcoming prostate cancer. The patients should also enquire about the experience of a surgeon and the number of successful surgeries that they have performed. He recommends surgery for cases where cancer has not spread beyond the gland. There are several studies that have shown surgery as being the best treatment.
Why choose surgery?
One of the reasons is because men who choose radiation expose themselves to the side effects of radiation which include the development of secondary cancer. Another reason is if cancer reoccurs, it is difficult to perform surgery. Patients who undergo radiation are one-and-a-half times more likely to die sooner than men who undergo surgery. Such patients are twice likely to die of prostate cancer compared to those treated with surgery. Patients whose cancer is localized have an almost 100% survival rate if the prostate is removed.

After spending a number of years operating in the financial technology sector, Jed McCaleb, the mind behind eDonkey2000 and Mt. Gox, utilized his growing knowledge of cryptocurrency, and in particular, Bitcoin, to initiate the launch of, what he believes will be, his most fruitful endeavor to date, the Stellar Network. The Stellar Network is a universal payment platform will enable anyone to send monies from place to place cheaply and efficiently. This is particularly important because, according to the World Bank, there are two and a half billion people in the world that don’t have access to financial institutions and are therefore considered to be unbanked. Although still in its early phases, Jed McCaleb has already met with the United Nations on behalf of the Stellar Network and several major organizations, including the Praekelt Foundation, have begun integrating it within their financial framework.
While he is considerably excited about the possibilities associated with the Stellar Network, Jed McCaleb attributes his success throughout his career as a result of his dedication to the overall vision of the project at hand, as well as his ability to compartmentalize. On a typical day, he divides his work into two important sections, consisting of a “focus mode,” and a “reactive mode.” While in focus mode, Jed McCaleb dedicates his time to building the Stellar Network, improving upon its deficiencies, and when in reactive mode, he spends time responding to emails and the other micro-responsibilities associated with his company.
Jed McCaleb is significantly excited about the prospects associated with artificial intelligence, which in the past decade, has evolved by leaps and bounds, taking it out of the realm of science fiction. In his estimation, the impact of artificial intelligence on the world will be profound, changing the ways we tend to our daily lives. The impact will be so great in fact, that it will rival many of the historical revolutions felt by mankind in years past. This belief has led Mr. McCaleb to join the Machine Intelligence Research Institute as an advisor, and also a charitable contributor.

Having an exit strategy was another piece of advice given by The Oxford Club. The publisher said that the best investors know when to sell. Members of The Oxford Club know when they should count their losses and exit.
The publisher also recommended that people should use a position-sizing formula. This is because it can help investors determine how much they should put in for a specific stock. The Oxford Club believes that position sizing plays a crucial role in how successful an investor will be.
The fourth strategy involves cutting investment costs. They mentioned how there are moves investors can make to get the most from their investment portfolio. One of those moves is to cut costs by stiff-arming the IRS, as well as fund managers who often charge high fees.
Those were the four strategies The Oxford Club shared. You can learn more about their strategies and tactics by subscribing to their newsletter.

When Dr. Mark McKenna sold his previous business, Shape Med, one gets the feeling that he was not ready to let it go yet. That is a natural assumption to make when you compare Shape Med to his latest venture OVME. They are similar in their purpose, but OVME is the new and improved version. OVME’s product is cosmetic services on demand with an additional focus on health and wellness.
Given the opportunity to do anything a second time, your second attempt will almost always produce a better result. Perhaps that is why when Dr. Mark McKenna approached an Atlanta venture capital firm with his business plan they were willing to write him a check for $4 million back in 2014. His backers understood that they were dealing with someone who had already been around the block several times.
Dr.McKenna knows where he wants to go and how to get there. He is forecasting that now that the Atlanta flagship location of OVME, is open, the Las Vegas office will not be far behind, as has been his plan since the beginning. He intends to eventually have offices in multiple U.S. cities.
Dr. Mark McKenna is of the new generation of physicians. The interference of insurance companies has undermined what was once one of the most lucrative careers you might think to pursue. That has caused many young doctors to be industrious and resourceful in finding ways to augment their income.
In many cases, it will be “doctorpreneurs” like Dr. Mckenna, who will save the day by making use of technology to develop information tools that can yield even more technology products. The cascade of cause and effect is endless and unpredictable. However, judging from his past accomplishments in the business world we can only assume that Dr. Mark McKenna is both a serious and capable investor.

It is already declared that the General Data Protection Regulations or GDPR takes its force from May 25, 2018, and that would ensure uniform data protection rules in across every member of European Union. It is concluded that the regulations would significantly affect the companies around the world. When it comes to the absorption period of regulations, the companies have to assess their current approach to data protection, make gap analysis to understand the changing requirements and establish those changes to make it compliant to the new regulations by May 25. In a recent interview, an analyst from GoBuyside explained the implications of GDPR on the fund management sector.
With the implementation of GDPR, it is going to be concluded that personal data protection is becoming as the fundamental right to individuals by adopting a concept of privacy by default. The latest regulations rewrite the security obligations and principles of the current Data Protection Drive of EU region. The structure of the bill demands the controllers to introduce the needed technical measures, organization mechanisms and procedures by default to make sure that the data can only be processed per GDPR. Additionally, the regulations are giving more weight for accountability and transparency. Interestingly, processors as well as controllers are responsible and should demonstrate their compliance, whenever necessary.
Base salaries and bonus payments for private equity and venture capital professionals have been rising steadily since 2014, averaging 6-8% increase for each consecutive year.https://t.co/CGKq9ISM9n
While the current data protection rules focus on only data controllers that are designed and established in the EU region, GDPR applies to everyone who is operating in the region, confirms GDPR expert. Due to that reason, investment fund companies, AIFMs, management firms, distributors, depositaries, and fund administrators should consider their control over personal data, from investors to the employees of the business, to ensure that everything is working under the compliance of GDPR. The regulation would ensure full insight of personal information and data flows for the organizations.

Back in earlier times, physical health was the main focus on health, while mental health was largely ignored. Also, when people were found out to have mental health problems, they were placed in a hospital. Now, a lot of things have changed. People have changed the way they look at mental health issues such as depression and anxiety. For one thing, people are starting to see some discoveries about mental health issues such as depression.
Fortunately, there is a facility that is available to help people that are suffering from depression and other mental health disorders without the use of medication. TMS Health Solutions specializes in other forms of treatment for people that are suffering from mental illness. This company is among the many alternative treatment companies that deal with depression. They pay a lot of attention to the statistics of those who are trying to get treatment for their mental health condition.
The treatment of choice for TMS Health Solutions is transcranial magnetic therapy. This type of therapy is approved by the FDA and is non-intrusive. Therefore, people do not have to worry about any discomfort that they are not ready for. One thing that TMS Health Solutions understands is that mental health conditions can be rather tricky to recover from. For one thing, some people are going to experience certain traumas all over again because that could be one of the root causes of depression.
One thing about depression and other mental health conditions is that they could be a result of feelings that have not been processed. For one thing, people often learn to protect themselves from further harm when they are dealing with attacks. This can often result in some mental disorder later on in their lives. Fortunately, TMS Health Solutions is there to correct the coping mechanisms in addition to TMS therapy.
