A Multiple Disease Approach To Mosquito-Borne Viruses Is Crucial To Reducing Infections According To Medical Advisor Sergio Cortes

There are at least 149 countries around the world that are targets for the multiple diseases carried by mosquitoes. The mosquito population in countries that have poor sanitation standards and clean water issues are losing the battle against viruses, according to Brazilian Doctor Sergio Cortes. Dr. Cortes is an orthopedic surgeon and Harvard-educated businessman. He served as the Director of the State Ministry of Health in Rio de Janeiro for seven years. While he was Director of the Ministry of Health, Dr. Cortes had the opportunity to travel to the poor, rural areas in the North and Northeastern region of Brazil. The living conditions in some of those areas are primitive by anyone’s standards. Infectious diseases continue to make living in those areas a daily struggle.

Extra.Globo.com published an article about the unsanitary conditions and the lack of clean water when Dr. Cortes visited Xerém, Duque de Caxias in 2013. An epic flood destroyed homes, and the streets in the area were filled with garbage as the flood waters receded. Xerém was a prime target for a dengue outbreak and Dr. Cortes, and his Ministry of Health team were sent to Xerém to prevent a serious outbreak of that often deadly mosquito-borne virus. The Ministry of Health team distributed bottled water, survival kits, antibiotics and instructions that explained how to avoid dengue to the survivors.

Dr. Cortes is currently the Chief Medical Officer of Rede D’Or São Luiz in Rio de Janeiro, according to CruchBase.com. But Dr. Cortes is still very active in the ongoing program to reduce the mosquito population by using new insecticides, setting new medical standards in rural and intercity slums. Dr. Cortes advocates purchasing drugs and vaccinating people when vaccines are available. Dr. Cortes wants to decentralize the management and planning in areas where mosquitoes control the health of the people, according to a post on the Dr. Cortes official website.

Dr. Cortes recently posted a tweet that a controlled multiple disease approach is necessary now more than ever. The Zika virus outbreak changed health control procedures, according to Brazil’s Ministry of Health. More communication, planning, and a closer monitoring system must be established in order to prevent another virus outbreak that impacts the entire country. Dr. Cortes thinks more education is needed, so Brazilians understand that mosquitoes aren’t the only carriers of viral infections. Humans play a big part in the rapid spread of viruses.

Madeline Stuart’s Recent Bridal Shoot and About JustFab

Madeline Stuart, the 18-year-old model with Down’s Syndrome, recently broke the mold again by releasing her own bridal photo shoot. Her mission was to prove that bridal modeling doesn’t have to be exclusive for the stereotypical tall, thin models. The photo shoot was carried out at the Rixey Manor manor in Virgina, which is owned by Isadora Martin-Dye.

Sarah Houston, who was the photographer of the shoot reported that Stuart’s mother, Rosanne, had some reservations at first due to concerns that it would be an excuse for newspapers to sell Madeline as a celebrity. However, she quickly came to her senses and realized that it could also be a vehicle for helping to improve the general public’s perceptions about Down Syndrome. Houston also commented that she was blown away by how easy Madeline was to work with because of her warm personality.
Martin-Dye also later commented on a Facebook post that Stuart seems to be the happiest in front of the camera.

The dress that Stuart wore was a ruffle with a short train and a sparkly tank at the top. On her face was a little bit of dark blue eyeshadow, mascara and very red lipstick. Her red hair was pinned up. Everything she was wearing matched her face and skin tone perfectly. Her best feature, though, was probably her smile.

The issue of contention is the client does not know which phone calls were precipitated due to seeing the Adwords ads or from another source. Therefore, the client cannot tell how well the White Shark Media’s Youtube campaign is working.

White Shark Media has formed a partnership with Marchex, a call tracking service. The call tracking work should effectively determine what particular inquiries are the direct result of the Adwords campaign.

White Shark Media formed an additional partnership with another company, and this was done to further help address client concerns. Communications is very important to clients working with a marketing firm. Clients do want to know how their budget is being spent, and what results are being delivered.

China’s Growing Pains As Seen By George Soros

George Soros often times sees the world, and the economic forces that move this world, in a different way than most every other investor. He has a long history of calling things correctly, and that is largely based on his keen eye for accurately assessing what is going on across the globe. Currently he is concerned that China’s recent fiscal woes are going to leak into the international economies, and bringing with them trouble. In the fullness of time, it might be worse than what we have already seen. The currency devaluation in China is also causing problems for underdeveloped countries who are struggling to come back from negative interest-rate situations, and many of whom do business with, and count on the financial strength of China. They are particularly vulnerable in this scenario.

China is undergoing a shift from manufacturing to consumption, and from investment toward providing services. Mr. Soros sees a problem  reported by Bloomberg.com that he saw in 2008 starting to take hold in China. Add to this that the problems in Greece paled in comparison to the near mortgage and bank-bailout wipeout in the United States in 2007, which totally gripped the nation by 2008 as investment banks folded.

There are also caveats in the volatility measures of the major indexes across the world. It is like the world does sense something is coming, and as China prepares to become more of a meaningful player on the world’s economic stage, and with their Communist Party pledging currency convertibility by 2020, their overall economic status remains weak, largely attributable to transitioning. With China being the second largest economy in the world, the gyrations as they move through market cycles will be felt in all corners of the world. It used to be said that when the United States markets sneeze, the markets around the world catch a cold. I think it is fair to say that China is now rising to such lofty levels of capitalism and economic influence.

George Soros believes that China is undergoing a major adjustment in their financial status. With the “we are taking our toys and going home” closure of the Chinese stock market amid a major sell-off in January, the world will continue to grapple with the freehand and why China seems to want to play as long as things are going their way. Mr. Soros feels China faces a major challenge, and transitioning through this challenge is going to put them in the position of weathering the type of storm we had in 2008 in the United States. He is likely right, as he has a history of being so.
