Cassio Audi, a Man of Many Crafts

A jack of many trades! The phrase would aptly describe one Cassio Audi. Indeed, a man of many talents. Most people know Cassio the successful investment management specialist. The success story in the financial sector was preceded by another success story in music. Yes, music, heavy metal to be precise!

Like many other teenagers, Cassio tried out a hand in his talent. He was a member of a Brazilian band that had a profound interest in British heavy metal music. The teenager took Latin America by surprise with their great talent at such tender ages. The group, known as Viper, was instrumental in the growth of heavy metal music in Brazil in the 1980s. The band was formed about 1985 and was topping the music scene two years later. Although the initial members left, it remained active for decades owing to its solid foundation.
Cassio was a drummer for the group and also composed some songs which took the airwaves by storm. He was an active member of the group for about four years before leaving sometime in 1989. His love for investment and finance may also be traced back to his youth. Ability to penetrate the music market with the unique music genre was not easy, especially for young musicians and bands. He is accredited with propelling the Viper in the music industry through energetic marketing not only in Brazil but the whole of Latin America.
By the time he left, the band had some albums to their name. Cassio was more popular owing to his drumming expertise. One interesting fact is that they began by playing small gigs and recorded demo songs. The demo songs did very well pushing them to release their first album. Cassio Audio is simply a multifaceted man who dynamically utilized his talents to propel him into a successful career life.

Talos Energy Breaks New Ground…Under Water

The Well
In May of this year, Talos Energy joined forces with London-based Premier Oil Plc and Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas to drill the first non state-run oil well in Mexican waters in almost 80 years. The well is anticipated to produce between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude from the Sureste Basin. Located approximately 37 miles off the Port of Dos Bocas, Mexico, the Zama-1 site will be drilled by the floating rig Ensco 8503. Sitting on 546 feet of water, it is expected to reach a depth of 11,000 ft. Drilling began on May 17th, and is expected to take up to 90 days to reach its goal.

The state-run Petroleos Mexicanos had held a monopoly on all oil exploration in Mexican waters since 1938, but recent economic factors encouraged the country to open the industry to foreign developers. Talos and others hope to capitalize on what will surely be a closely observed joint venture.

The Company
After building and profitably selling Phoenix Exploration Co. and Gryphon Exploration Co., the management team founded Talos Energy in 2012. Headquartered in Houston, the company explores, exploits and optimizes oil and gas assets in the Gulf of Mexico. Their goal is safe, environmentally compliant operations. They maintain these standards by continuously looking for new and better ways to operate.

Founder, President and Chief Executive Officer Tim Duncan has established himself as leader in the industry with an impressive resume that includes a BS in Petroleum Engineering from Mississippi State University, and an MBA from the University of Houston. He also serves on the board of the College of Engineering Dean’s Advisory Council at MSU, and in 2012 was named as Distinguished Fellow of the College of Engineering.

Talos Energy was chosen by the Houston Chronicle as the #1 workplace in the area in 2013, and has maintained a top position ever since.

As Chairman and CEO of OSI Group, Sheldon Lavin, while not able to connect with all of his employees on a personal level due to the sheer numbers, has implemented a family-oriented culture that hopes will trickle down to every facet of OSI Group’s endeavors. Mr. Lavin was initially very hesitant about entering into the meat industry, but after a chance opportunity presented with Otto and Sons, a company that he was helping to secure financing for and the predecessor to OSI Group, he relented and began what would be one of the greatest steps in his storied career. By 1975, Mr. Lavin had become significantly involved in the operations of what would become OSI Group, and as it continued its steady growth during the 70’s and 80’s, expanding into untapped markets in South America, Taiwan, and South Africa, he eventually gained a controlling interest in OSI Group.

NuoDB Is The Only Database Left For Cloud Computing

With the increase in demand for cloud technology, more application developers need to utilize distributed computing within their databases. The issue is that most database software products are very sluggish on distributed computing platforms. Luckily, NuoDB was conjured for the specific purpose of supporting cloud-based software.

Having been founded in 2008, the database software project is rapidly becoming adopted within many industries. Dassault Systèmes, Kodiak and Alfa Systems are just some examples of companies that have completely switched over to the power of NuoDB.

NuoDB will have no problem importing database files from other competing products as it supports numerous SQL syntaxes. MySQL, Microsoft SQL, and other inferior products are supported by this platform. The backward compatibility will assure that your business will have very few issues when migrating to NuoDB. NuoDB also has its own set of unique syntax that is specific to distributed computing.

If you do not have the budget for expensive software, you can still download the community version of the product. The community version is fully-featured as the paid version, but it does not have technical support. You may still thoroughly review the manual, ask questions on the forums, and google your technical issues to resolve them on your own.
