Dr. David Samadi Offers Outlook on Candidate Mitt Romney’s Prostate Treatment

Prostate Cancer is one of the deadliest diseases that can affect older men. Left undetected, Prostate Cancer can lead to death in many cases. Now, a renowned urologist offers his analysis on the prostate procedure undergone by Utah Senatorial candidate and former Presidential candidate Mitt Romney.

So how deadly is prostate cancer? For men over the age of 50, prostate cancer is one of the most deadly forms of cancer. In fact, there are over 1.4 million cases of prostate cancer each year resulting in over 300,000 annual deaths. That is why it is important for men over the age of 50 to be checked for early detection.

In the case of Mitt Romney, the prostate cancer was detected early and a surgical procedure could be performed. For candidate Romney, the procedure was performed at the University of California Hospital at Irvine by Dr. Thomas Ahlering. According to Dr. David Samadi, the procedure was a success and Mr. Romney will be healthy enough to go forward with his Senatorial campaign.

Because prostate cancer is common in older men, many well-known politicians have had prostate procedures performed leading to a full recovery. Some of the politicians who have had prostate procedures performed include former Secretary of State Colin Powell as well as former Presidential candidate John Kerry.

Dr. David Samadi is an ardent advocate of surgery over chemotherapy to treat prostate cancer. In Dr. Samadi’s own words, the survival rate for someone who has a surgical procedure to remove a localized cancerous prostate is 100%. Chemotherapy, on the other hand, can lead to a number of side effects that can harm and potentially kill the person who is being treated.

Additionally, Dr. Samadi states that if chemotherapy is performed and it turns out that cancer has spread, then the five-year survival rate for the patient drops to about 30%. Dr. Samadi also mentioned that chemotherapy could also expose patients to secondary cancer that could affect other organs of the body.

Dr. David Samadi works at Lenox Hill Hospital as the Chairman of Urology as well as the Chief of Robotic Surgery. Dr. Samadi was educated at Stony Brook University where he received a degree in Biochemistry. Afterward, he received his M.D. at Stony Brook School of Medicine. After completing his urology postdoctorate training at Montefiore Medical Center, Dr. Samadi completed his oncology fellowship at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center.

Talk Fusion Reveals Their Latest Innovations

Talk Fusion is a well known name within the tech sector. They’ve taken difficult technical issues and created solutions that people of every walk of life can use. As such, the announcement that they’re expanding their product line drew a lot of attention.

 

They’re going about it in a unique way as well. The announcement goes hand in hand with some dramatic changes to their software suite’s interface. The Talk Fusion Video Suite now has a whole new look for the Product Dashboard.

 

This isn’t just a single new feature either. The dashboard is marked as a prelude of things to come. The new way of interacting with the software suite also opens up new possibilities for software expansion. And that’s exactly what’s planned for Talk Fusion in the new year. The new dashboard coincides with an announcement of some big new features coming into the software lineup.

 

But it also showcases one of the things that makes Talk Fusion unique. The dashboard isn’t just technically impressive. It’s also something that almost anyone can understand on an intuitive level. This is a hallmark of their entire business practice.

 

The company places heavy focus on video based communication. And the reason comes down to ease of communication. Talking to people face to face helps to facilitate the meaning behind a message. It delivers a richer and more complex exchange between two individuals. Talk Fusion has understood that right from the start. In fact, one simply has to look at the name to see evidence of it.

 

Talk Fusion began through a fusion of different communication technologies into a singular whole. And they’re continuing that mission with services like WebRTC. That too was driven home during Talk Fusion’s announcement. They’re making a very deliberate push to continue innovating through use of the latest technologies. But in doing so they’re also working to maintain an easy to use interface.

 

This harkens back to the company’s start back in 2007. Company president Bob Reina had seen just how fragmented the telecommunications industry was. Differing standards were the norm and it was interfering with people’s ability to communicate with each other. Talk Fusion did just that. It fused different methods of communication into a singular and more powerful whole.

 

Today that’s created a system by which people can communicate using rich multimedia. But most impressive is the simple fact that people on the receiving end can still use their familiar services. Talk Fusion’s use of innovative technologies allows them to extend services in modern browsers. The end result is a software suite which can give people the ability to talk face to face even if they’re separated by oceans. Learn more:  https://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2010/11/10/talk-really-can-be-cheap/#355f7a864e80

 

Dr. David Samadi Provides Update about Mitt Romney’s Cancer Prognosis

Dr. David Samadi, Chief Urologist and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital in New York details the positive prognosis about Mitt Romney’s prostate cancer diagnosis. Mitt Romney, 70, was diagnosed with prostate cancer after discovering a slow-growing tumor in 2017.

Dr. David Samadi has much insight to offer on the topic as he specializes in Urology and has been practicing medicine since graduating from Stony Brook School of Medicine in 1994. Dr. Samadi continued his post-graduate studies in urology at Montefiore Medical Center. He also completed studies in proctology and completed a fellowship in oncology proctology at Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center in 2001.

Dr. Samadi went on to work at Columbia Presbyterian Hospital before joining the faculty at Mt. Sinai School of Medicine. He went on to become Mt. Sinai’s Vice Chair of the Department of Urology as well as the Chief of Robotics & Minimally Invasive Surgery. In 2013 Dr. David Samaid moved to Lenox Hill Hospital as Chair of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery.

Dr. Samadi has treated patients who have also been diagnosed with prostate cancer like Mitt Romney. While not all cases of prostate cancer are the same and some do require specialized treatment, Mitt Romney was diagnosed with the most common and most curable form of prostate cancer for a man his age. Over half of prostate cancer diagnosis’s occur in men 65 or older and is rare in men under 40.

Mitt Romney has had a positive prognosis update after choosing surgery versus radiation to tackle his cancer. Dr. Samadi recommends surgery first to treat prostate cancer, especially for cancer that is localized and hasn’t spread. The survival rates for men who choose surgery versus radiation is higher and men who choose surgery over radiation have lesser chance of the cancer returning.

Also as Dr. Samadi explains treating with radiation comes with more risk and makes surgery less effective when utilized as a second choice for treatment. Chances of secondary cancers, especially in the bladder and colon, are higher when radiation treatment is used. For men who have a tumor that hasn’t spread, treatment with surgery has almost a one hundred percent survival rate according to Dr. Samadi.

Mitt Romney joins a number of public figures that have undergone surgery for prostate cancer including former presidential candidate John Kerry. Dr. Samadi’s advice to any man diagnosed with prostate cancer is to find a qualified doctor to help determine the best treatment plan to ensure a positive outcome like Mitt Romney’s positive prognosis.

Desiree Perez Doesn’t Stand Idle in Face of Misogyny

When one considers the powerhouse that is Jay-Z, the name Desiree Perez is often not far from the mind. As the COO of ROC Nation, a position she’s held since 2009, she’s overseen the steady and successful climb of many musical artists–Jay-Z among them. Although private, Desiree Perez did not stand idly by when Neil Portnow, president of Recording Academy, made an insensitive remark regarding women. In this statement, he said that women needed to step up in order to advance their careers.

Naturally, Desiree and other women were not keen on letting Portnow slide with that offensive statement. Pink reportedly said in response, “Women in music don’t need to ‘step up’—women have been stepping since the beginning of time . . . Women OWNED music this year. They’ve been KILLING IT. And every year before this. When we celebrate and honor the talent and accomplishments of women, and how much women STEP UP every year, against all odds, we show the next generation of women and girls and boys and men what it means to be equal, and what it looks like to be fair.”

Desiree, along with a group of other women from recording labels, signed a letter to the Recording Academy’s board. In the letter, they stated that the academy was, “woefully out of touch with today’s music, the music business, and even more significantly society.” In addition, they called for Portnow’s resignation. The academy, in turn, has stated that it’s going to put forward efforts to ensure that all forms of bias and barriers are eliminated to promote female advancement.Since Desiree Perez has been a strong supporter of the #MeToo movement among her fellow female artists, it comes as no surprise that she was among those to spearhead the problem presented by Portnow’s comments.

Dr. Mark Mofid: The New Face In Aesthetics

Many people consider aesthetics as part of something they need to maintain. People are very cautious about how their face should be kept flawless to reconstructing a particular part they are not contented of and so this is where plastic surgery comes into the picture. A plastic surgeon’s job is to reconstruct parts which are not proportional to the body of a person or enhance a particular part of the body or face to make the person’s look more enticing. In San Diego, there is a known plastic surgeon in the area, and that is Dr. Mark Mofid.

Dr. Mark Mofid, a certified plastic surgeon by the American Board of Plastic Surgery and also is certified by the American Board of Facial Plastic and Reconstructive Surgery, is said to provide quality and the most advanced procedure concerning reconstructive surgery. Dr. Mark Mofid does not do impulsive treatment plans to his patients. His secret to a neat work and successful operations is how he carefully evaluates his patients. Before coming up with an idea, he talks to his patients one on one to know and to study what the main problem is. From the evaluation and interview, he then thinks of advanced and efficient ways to meet his patient’s needs and wants and more

Dr. Mark Mofid started by his dismay on available implants in the market. And with this, he studied the procedure and learned the techniques from his mentor from Brazil, Dr. Raul Gonzalez. Dr. Mofid said that his methods had improved over time and that his secret to success is to study his subject very well. In an interview, he said that when he started his career in plastic surgery, he was not mindful of what aesthetics mean. He just did operate but as he succeeded in his career, he then realized the importance of knowing the background and the needs of his patients.

As aesthetics contributes to our society today, we may also have to think of how to be responsible when using it. We, on the other hand, must be then thankful for what we have but in case of critical situations, we can always seek for professional help in the area of aesthetics.

Jim Larkin

Jim Larkin was a unionist born in Liverpool, England on January 21, 1876. Widely known as Big Jim by friends and enemies alike, as a child, Jim Larkin developed his characteristic leadership under the strenuous circumstances common throughout the slums of the times and began showing the leadership skills that would be central to his career and legacy.

Born to an Irish family, opportunities were limited to manual labor jobs due to the overwhelming rate of poverty, as well as the prejudice that the Irish commonly experienced. Read more: Jim Larkin | Wikipedia and Jim Larkin | Biography

While his education was limited, to say the least, he would secure a number of jobs throughout his youth, and he eventually became a foreman on the docks in Liverpool.

As a committed Marxist, Jim Larkin, after experiencing various forms of unfair treatment while on the job, joined the National Union of Dock Laborers, eventually rising to the position of trade union organizer in 1905. In 1907, after being transported to Dublin by the National Union of Dock Laborers due to his radical methods of protest, Mr. Larkin founded the Irish Transport and General Workers Union.

The goal of the ITGWU was to concentrate on creating a collective amongst both the skilled and unskilled Irish laborers of the time, creating one central unit. In 1913, Jim Larkin would be credited as the central figure responsible for the Dublin Lockout, after holding a series of effective protests.

During the Irish Lockout, which would go on to last nearly eight months, over 100,000 Irish workers went on strike, kicking off a game-changing series of events in regards to the practices concerning general laborers.

After the Irish Lockout ended, the Irish Transport and General Workers Union would disband, making way for the formation of the Irish Labor Party. At the onset of World War I, Jim Lakin organized a multitude of anti-war protests in Dublin, eventually relocating to the United States, although he would eventually garner a conviction for communism, as well as criminal anarchy, and be deported.

Jim Larkin continued to fight for the rights of Irish Workers until his death on January 30, 1947.
