Orthopedics is a branch of medicine that specializes in the skeletal and muscular formation of the human body. Orthopedics does not necessarily involve surgical solutions as the doctor may choose to offer nonsurgical solutions. Orthopedic surgeons are faced with varying issues that they solve differently; however, some orthopedic issues are common to most surgeons.
Spine surgery lies on the top of the list of most common orthopedic procedures. Greg Finch, an Australian orthopedic surgeon specialized in spine surgery says that spine surgery can rid of back many problems. Spinal problems at times cause aggravated pain to the back which patients describe as impairing. Spinal Fusion; one of the most common spinal procedures, involves the joining of the vertebrae; this restricts motion between the bones and thus reduces tension on the nerves bringing relief from pain.
Total joint replacement is another procedure quite common in orthopedics. This surgery is done mostly to people diagnosed with arthritis. The operation is meant to either relief patients from pain or to enable them to walk for longer distances. The procedure involves replacing the affected parts of the joints with metallic or plastic surfaces shaped naturally to restore joint functionality.
Greg Finch is one of the most recognized orthopedic surgeons in Australia. Greg Finch specializes in pediatric orthopedics and trauma, spinal surgery, and trauma and orthopedic surgery. He received training at the MBChB Auckland Medical School. Dr. Greg Finch’s wealth of experience in a diverse range of orthopedic issues has seen him rise to become the leading orthopedic in Australia.
Clay Siegall, best known as the founder and CEO of Seattle Genetics, has long been a force to be reckoned with in the field of cancer research. Today, he leads one of the nation’s top firms in the field of antibody drug conjugate development. This exciting new class of drugs promises to radically transform the treatment of certain types of cancer and eventually, it may even lead to a cure.
From PhD to IPO to ADCs
Dr. Clay Siegall first became interested in the study of cancer drugs while still in graduate school. He was moved by the harrowing stories of those who underwent brutal chemotherapy regimens. These often left the patient without hair, unable to eat and sometimes even dead. With an already strong interest in medicine, Dr. Siegall decided that he would dedicate himself to a career in cancer research.
After graduating with a PhD from George Washington University, Dr. Siegall was hired by the National Cancer Institute as a researcher. During this time, he first became aware of a new kind of treatment called targeted cancer therapy. This new line of research promised to create drugs which specifically targeted tumor cells without attacking other healthy cells, thus creating the terrible side effects so often seen in chemotherapy.
After working with the National Cancer Institute for four years, Dr. Siegall was hired by Bristol-Myers Squibb to lead they’re targeted therapy research program. During this period Dr. Siegall was instrumental in the early development of a new class of targeted therapy drugs called antibody drug conjugates. These drugs used synthetic antibodies, made in a laboratory, to deliver highly cytotoxic chemicals directly to the site of the tumor. Dr. Siegall’s time at Bristol-Myers Squibb proved to him that this was a viable concept that could completely eliminate the terrible side effects of chemotherapy, while actually increasing the effectiveness of cancer treatment.
In 1998, Dr. Siegall left Bristol-Myers Squibb to establish his own company, Seattle Genetics. Over the next four years, Dr. Siegall built the company from a small staff of researchers into one of the largest biotech firms in the United States. Today, Seattle Genetics lead the fight against cancer through its ongoing and innovative program of new drug development.

The stock markets fell by 12% with the announcement that the United Kingdom was leaving the European Union (EU). Other consequences included the devaluation of British currency, the sterling pound which reached its lowest level since 1985. According to Flavio Maluf, the long-term consequences to the global economy cannot be underestimated and will be felt.
Consequences to the British economy
The United Kingdom spent 11.3 billion Euros and 6.9 billion euros it received from EU for the 2014 data. This consequently increased inflationary pressure on the British economy. Flavio Maluf however argues and quotes FN capital director ‘Figueiredo’ that the British economy will have the considerable drop of investments received from investors. The end of free movement of people and country between member countries will have the negative impact on the British economy.
Trade in the United Kingdom and Europe.
In international trade there are tariffs and other quotas imposed on goods from other nations. With the exit of British from EU, it means it has to draft new customs union that won’t allow free trade from any country including those from EU. This will likely harm foreign trade. Flavio Maluf remarks and quotes Otto Nogami that the British exit may also bring some advantages to the United Kingdom. The country will have to move ahead and sign bilateral agreements with individual countries which were not viable before.
Consequences on the Brazilian imports and exports
Brazil will benefit because it now can enter bilateral agreements directly with the British which previously was negotiated under the EU standards umbrella. However, the benefits are very limited as Brazil is a major trading partner to the United Kingdom the trade accounts for less than 2% annual exports.
Impact to the European Union
The United Kingdom was one of the major pillars of the European Union as part of established countries. The British exit from EU creates a major crack in the Union and countries like France has shown weaknesses in its economy leaving Germany to sustain the block in economic terms.
Flavio Maluf is a Brazilian businessman born in 1961; he is a mechanical engineer by training and a successful entrepreneur. He is currently the president of Eucatex and grand food group. He’s also the older son of politician Paulo Maluf.
Eucatex was started in November 1951 and its headquartered in Sao Paulo Brazil as the first company of Brazilian origin to think about acoustic comfort and environment. It started the use of eucalyptus as a raw material to produce ceiling tiles and panels. Eucatex was born from Americana sawmill established in 1923 in Sao Paulo Brazil.

George Soros has built an impressive personal fortune of over $25 billion that has been based on the skills of the Hungarian born financial expert to predict political and social events occurring around the world; according to Forbes. The impressive business expert differs from many on Wall Street as he has led a life that sounds as though it was lifted directly from the pages of a book. Born in 1930, George Soros and his Jewish family were forced into hiding when Nazi German forces occupied the country and forced the patriarch of the family to used forged papers to keep his family alive as more than 500,000 Jewish community members in Hungary were slaughtered during the Holocaust; following the conclusion of World War II, George Soros found himself living under Communist rule in Hungary and set out as a refugee to study at the London School of Economics. Read this story at Politico.com about George Soros.
Although he established his Open Society Foundations global network of charitable groups in the 1980s, George Soros has become best known for his major political giving in the U.S. Soros made his political name during the 2004 election campaign with a $27 million investment made in the campaign of Democrat John Kerry in his losing battle to defeat incumbent President George W. Bush; the loss of the 2004 election led directly to the establishment of the George Soros backed Democracy Alliance that seeks to develop new ways of bringing liberal candidates to office in the U.S. In recent months, George Soros and his fellow major Democrat donors have become the fiercest critics of incoming President Donald Trump and have vowed to do everything in their power to battle the attempts of Republicans to destroy the legacy of President Barrack Obama.
