Omar Boraie sheds more light to genomic science research

 

Rutgers Cancer Institution of New Jersey is America’s only National Cancer Institution dedicated to improve detection, treatment and care of patients with cancer and also serve as an education resource for cancer prevention. Physician-scientists at the Institute engage in translational research by transforming the discoveries made in their laboratories into clinical practice. Rutgers University has the ‘18 Chair Challenge’ campaign in which an anonymous donor in 2011, made a pledge of 27 million dollars to create challenge grants for establishment of 18 new endowed chairs. For every 1.5 million dollars raised for a chair meeting the donor’s criteria, the donor will match the gift with an additional 1.5 million dollars needed to endow it. The Omar Boraie Chair in Genomic Science was established and named after the New Brunswick developer Omar Boraie made a 1.5 million dollars to support it. This will help propel research in the field of precision medicine at Rutgers Cancer Institute of New Jersey.
Medical professionals are changing how they approach cancer diagnosis and treatment thanks to the field of genomic science and precision medicine which involves analyzing and treating tumors on a genetic level thus allowing oncologists to prescribe individualized therapies. This results in better outcomes. President Obama even launched a national Precision Medicine Initiative focused on finding a cure for cancer and other diseases in his most recent State of the Union Address, showing how important it is.  Precision medicine enables scientists to classify cancer into groups with similar characteristics but different genetics so as to predict patient outcomes better and also come up with individualized cancer therapies.
Omar Boraie who has a background in chemistry and an interest in cancer research hopes that his pledge would motivate others to come forth in the support of precision medicine. He believes the physician-scientists at Rutgers Cancer Institute are making significant advances in the field for those patients whose cancers are no longer responsive to the cancer medication available. Rutgers Cancer Institution Director, Robert S. DiPaola thanks Mr. Boraie’ s generosity and recognizes him as an integral part of the development of New Brunswick as a ‘Healthcare City’. Robert also notes Boraie’s desire to support an endowed chair will have an impact on cancer research and treatment of patients within and without New Brunswick.

Brazilian Lawyers Are Trying To Stop The Rise In White-Collar Crimes

Tosto also said Brazil is on the verge of imposing stronger accounting rules, and there is an effort to increase corporate transparency as well. But that will take time, and in the meantime lawyers in Brazil that deal with white-collar crimes are very busy. Brazilian lawyers are busy because white-collar crimes are increasing in spite of the fact that there are new rules on the horizon. Some lawyers say the new rules are the reason for the increase. More than 300,000 anti-fraud operations were carried out in 2015, and that is an 112 percent increase over last year.
A couple of Brazilian law firms are getting a lot of attention because of the operations that are underway against a large investment bank and wealth management company. When the media released the news that the company was under investigation, clients withdrew $616 million from the company, and that kept the bank’s lawyers busy, according to Ricardo Tosto.
The Brazilian lawyers that handle financial crime in Brazil think Brazilians believe they will not be successfully prosecuted if they are caught. One reason is the judicial system. Brazilian lawyers tend to get their clients off because of the ineptness of the Brazilian judicial system.
Ricardo Tosto believes white-collar crimes in Brazil are greater than the white-collar crimes in the United States, but they are in line with the crimes committed by other emerging markets. Corporate executives commit crimes because investigating a white-collar crime takes time and money. The situation in Brazil is in such turmoil that it’s hard for prosecutors to identify all the crimes that occur in Brazil. White-collar crimes are low priority and executives know it. Lawyers that do represent executives that are accused of crimes have a leg up on the system, according to Tosto, and he said it will stay that way until the government can get its act together.

Stockpile Pictures for Image Recognition Apps

Through using an image recognition app, the ability to find merchandise online becomes a lot easier. Of course, consumers do have to have an image in order to use the search and recognition app. Therefore, it is suggested to use the camera on a mobile device a bit more often than is usually the case. This way, a collective of images are available to employ for searches when the time comes to make a buy.

Anyone new to the concept of product recognition searches might end up being surprised to discover how easy the whole process is. An app is installed on a mobile device with a camera. Pictures are taking of merchandise. Then, the pictures are run through an image recognition search box on an affiliated retail site. Visual images that match the picture are revealed in the search results.

Again, to actually see any results from this process, consumers need to take pictures. Consider it advisable to take as many pictures of appealing merchandise as possible. No one says the items have to be bought right away. By stockpiling images, however, the pictures are available when clearance, holiday, or other discount-friendly sales days arrive. Taking pictures is not exactly difficult. Storing the images is not going to absorb a ton of memory. So, keeping the images in a special folder until the time comes when they are needed is not going to cause many problems.

Consider it very wise to use a top image recognition app. Slyce, a company based out of Toronto, offers a hot new image recognition app. Slyce is one of the fastest growing tech startups in the retail world. This is because the app it produces is easy to use and delivers solid search results.

Shopping becomes a lot easier and, possibly, less costly with a decent image recognition app. Installing a top one such as Slyce on a mobile device might be a good move for any consumer.

An Overview On Editing And Writing Articles For Wikipedia

Deciding To Finally Contribute To Wikipedia
Most people have probably used Wikipedia as an online resource for information before, but they probably didn’t know they could edit articles or submit new articles from scratch. Wikipedia is the online community’s largest source of crowd-sourced information available. It is more reliable than most think, because it relies on strict guidelines for submission and other Wikipedia users to do the fact-checking. Some people may already do a fair amount of editing, but they still might not know they can submit from scratch, and some people or businesses may want to hire a professional service like Get Your Wiki to do submissions instead. This article will give a brief overview for editing and submission.

Editing A Wikipedia Article
This is extremely easy to do. There will be a small icon in the top-right corner of a Wikipedia page. Just click on the round icon and fix punctuation, grammar mistakes, clarify factually incorrect information or add to existing information. Once the editing is complete, make a notation of what changes were made for any readers that might come along. Wikipedia also has a section that goes into detail about about how to edit pages properly.

Guidelines For A First Submission To Wikipedia
The first thing to do before submitting a first article from scratch to Wikipedia is getting a registered account which requires only a username and password. Then, Wikipedia has a guideline that says all articles must be worthy of notice. Potential articles should be reviewed, and if the articles appear to belong in an encyclopedia, then the articles might be fine for submission. It is a question that authors need to ask themselves though. Next, make sure the topic isn’t already covered by doing a search of the site. After that, references should be gathered to add to the articles credibility. Finally, write the article. Wikipedia does have plenty of tips and guidelines for submitting a first article that can be reviewed that is vast and comprehensive.
