Dr. Saad Saad: Royal Physician

While Dr. Saad Saad may be best known in the medical community for the pediatric surgeries he has performed during his career, he is an inventor as well. He has always been interested in lessening the suffering that his patients and patients around the world have to experience while getting medical care. Dr. Saad Saad has been practicing medicine for more than 40 years and holds the belief that no child should be denied the best medical care possible because of their parents’ ability to pay. This is why he has volunteered a large amount of his time helping children around the world who would not have access to the type of medical care that he provides otherwise.

 

One of the most interesting inventions that Dr. Saad Saad has designed is an improvement on the typical endoscope equipment. Endoscopes are essentially a small camera on a long tube that is used to view inside certain parts of the body. Some of these include the windpipe, throat, stomach, colon, and bladder to name a few. They are very important pieces of equipment when it comes to the diagnosis and treatment of many different kinds of illnesses and disorders.

 

Unfortunately, there are some problems with the equipment that Dr. Saad Saad sought out to improve upon. One of these problems is the fact that the camera on the end of the scope has a tendency to become fogged up by the various liquids and gasses that exist in the human body. When the camera become fogged, the view is obstructed and the medical professional  performing the procedure has to remove the endoscope in order to provide suction to the area being viewed. After suction is provided, the endoscope is placed back into the patient. Dr. Saad Saad’s invention removes the need for this by fitting a device that provides suction and irrigation onto the endoscope. This is done by converting the existing anti-fog port.

 

With Dr. Saad Saad’s invention, the person using the endoscope can remove the liquid that is obstructing the view without having to remove the endoscope or insert anything else. The device also allows them to irrigate the area to wash away any substances that are hindering the view of the camera.

Dr. Saad Saad may be retired from practicing medicine, but he achieved a great deal during his career. Not only did he serve patients in the United States, he also acted as the pediatric surgeon for the children of the Saudi Royal Family. This gave him and his family to live and work in Saudi Arabia where they were treated with the utmost respect from everyone involved.

 

What Are Those Famous Freedom Checks?

What are Freedom Checks? Plenty of people have been asking this question over the last couple of months. Ever since Matt Badiali came out in that — now famous — viral video spouting off about Freedom Checks, the question has come up quite a few times. Well today, we are going to try to answer that question. The answer may surprise you.

First of all, let’s get rid of the name Freedom Checks for a second. Freedom Checks are simply Master Limited Partnerships coined under a fancy name. MLPs are companies that are set up under statute 26-F that are tax-free companies. How are they able to operate tax-free? Well, MLPs must pay back 90% of their profits to investors. This means that MLPs pay out massive checks in the mail every month, similar to stocks. Of course, the difference isn’t only for companies, individuals also get tax-breaks on MLPs. MLPs are capital driven not income driven so they are a lower tax bracket than the latter. Read more at Agora News about Freedom Checks.

How do you purchase an MLP? Pretty much the same way you purchase a stock. It operates almost identically other than the differences in taxation. You can use your online brokerage to purchase MLPs, same as stock.

So why is Matt Badiali wanting us to purchase MLPs? Well, first of all, MLPs aren’t a commonly known stock option. In Wall Street firms, sure, but to the individual, not so much. MLPs offer far better return than CDs and typically beat out 401(k) and Roth IRA benefits as well.

The reason that Badiali is calling them Freedom Checks is because of his prediction on the oil industry. Badiali thinks that reliance on foreign oil is decreasing and with advanced fracking methods, the domestic oil industry is going to explode. Whether or not this is true is up to you to decide.

In the past, however, Badiali has gotten a ton of calls correct. There is a reason that over 100,000 people subscribe to his Profits Unlimited Newsletter, and it’s not the $97/year fee. Investors who are picking Badiali’s picks are walking out with gains. As far as this specific investment goes, it may be a goldmine it may not. If I had to put my money on anyone though, it would be Badiali. View: http://www.metropolismag.com/uncategorized/freedom-check/

 

Tony Petrello Helps Lead Nabors To Dominance In High-tech Drilling Rigs

Nabors Industries is one of the oldest and most revered land-based drilling companies in the United States. First founded in the 1950s, the company was instrumental in the extraction of oil reserves from the Prudhoe Bay oil play in Alaska. Later, the company would continue to be instrumental in the opening up of the North Slope of Alaska to oil drilling, allowing the residents of that state to experience one of the greatest windfalls in the history of the United States.

Even today, more than 60 years later, the name Nabors Industries is still held in extremely high regard by residents of Alaska, who benefited by receiving billions of dollars in collective royalty payments from their state’s oil reserves. Unfortunately, Nabors Industries was largely mismanaged throughout the ‘70s and ‘80s, eventually leading to the company’s bankruptcy in the late 1980s.

It was around this time that a young tax attorney with law firm Baker McKenzie began working on the Nabors Industries bankruptcy proceedings. At that time, Nabors Industries’ upper management was looking for somebody to lead the company into the future. They wanted a smart, young executive who would be able to stay on board with the company for decades to come. They saw what they were looking for in Tony Petrello.

Tony Petrello was brought on board in the early 1990s as a chief operating officer of the company. There, he immediately began making profound changes to the way in which Nabors Industries did business. He outlined a new vision for the company, focusing on the development of high-tech drilling equipment that would be able to give Nabors Industries a dominant position in the quickly expanding shale oil market. This vision turned out to be prophetic, with Nabors Industries providing the bulk of the drilling equipment that would eventually be used in the Bakken Shale boom of the 2000s.

Petrello’s strategic realignment of the company led to the eventual development of such technologies as ROCKIT performance drilling software and the Modular Offshore Dynamic Series. These systems provided the foundation for Nabors Industries’ extensive lineup of high-tech drilling equipment. Suddenly, it was possible to efficiently and cost-effectively extract some of the hardest shale oil resources in the United States. This would have actually dropped the profitability threshold of shale oil extraction to around the level of $50 a barrel. Such low price thresholds meant that an eventual shale oil boom was all but inevitable. And under the astute leadership of Tony Petrello, Nabors Industries was there to take advantage of the entire thing.
