THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE LIES IN GENETIC ANALYSIS

THE FUTURE OF HEALTH CARE LIES IN GENETIC ANALYSIS

 

 

There’s more to high-technology machines that are abundantly found in the health industry nowadays. These machines are helpful. Yes, they are capable of scanning and testing all sorts of information from patients with a wide variety of needs. This information would then dictate what kind of prescription a health provider would give a patient, as well as the confirmation of the symptoms to its corresponding disease. But is there anything more than that piece of information is useful to? Seems like a never-ending cycle, right? So, what lies ahead the future of health care? Genetic Analysis.

Chen Qiyu, the Chairman and Executive Director of Fosun Pharmaceuticals in China, believes that there’s more to all these data that patients and health practitioners can do with. After conducting a talk in the recent RISE 2017 in Hong Kong, Chairman Qiyu simply answered “Genetic Analysis”, when asked about the future of health and medicine. Having access to vital information about a person’s whole genetic make-up could simply eradicate diseases that are difficult to cure or even those without known cures yet. Having a database of such would provide a more precise process in practicing treatments and developments. Genetic Analysis could possibly make healthcare most effective with the aid of advance information technology.

 

Genetic Analysis is carefully done in laboratories that usually take numerous processes to finish. When a simpler method has finally developed, it will be more available and could probably start a new era in the field of Medicine. “It will let everybody understand more by analyzing the genes.” Chairman Qiyu said. It will open new doors to therapeutic techniques and could even solve rare medical mysteries that seemed impossible to cure. He also said that consumers will finally have a great source of health management. When symptoms show up earlier, they would know what to do with those findings. The key point is to integrate current I.T to all available information that would store information about everybody’s health. With Fosun Group’s  capabilities and expertise, it won’t be impossible to see this advancement in our lifetime.

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR EVERYONE IS NOW POSSIBLE WITH SOLEVOLT

SUSTAINABLE ENERGY FOR EVERYONE IS NOW POSSIBLE WITH SOLEVOLT

The fact that a great number of the world’s population still does not have access to sustainable energy feels frustrating. It is surprising to know that despite the technological advances present today, the urge to provide a more important commodity seems to be overlooked. Local governments, or even private sectors, have yet to start the initiative to manage the provision and availability of sustainable energy to neighborhoods in far-flung places disadvantaged with the least privilege.

The absence of sustainable energy in these neighborhoods does not only tackle the lack of comfort in their everyday living but also of not having the basic access to healthcare. If a community strives without access to a comfortable basic living and healthcare, what more could they not afford?

Fortunately, a beaming hope in Solevolt Energy Systems, through its founders, CEO Bradley Mellicker and COO Rosalia Gitau, could be the answer to one of the most pressing issues this society has ever faced. For Solevolt, providing a sustainable energy through generators using renewable energy, will not only address the lack of basic needs but could possibly be the answer to uplift these neighborhoods from poverty.

So far, this initiative has reached people that made great impacts in their lives. A commercial carpenter in Haiti who used to have problematic deals of not having enough profit now enjoys the perks of a $300 savings in 15 days from switching to the Solevolt generator from his previous outdated generator. He can even provide comfort to his own household at night without shelling out an extra. Another proven social use of Solevolt was seen during Hurricane Matthew in 2016 when a generator unit was loaned generously by the company that made thousands of evacuees contact their loved ones letting them know they were safe.

With their vision to provide sustainable energy without harming the environment, Solevolt proved that a simple act of caring can go a long way. Its founders only want the best to be passed on to the next generation and more importantly, equal opportunities for everyone. Solevolt wants to make sure that their initiative and solution provides not only a profitable machinery but also satisfaction to environmental and social responsibilities, solidifying an ideal business model.

La plantation de Marijuana s´accroît en Tunisie

La plantation de Marijuana s´accroît en Tunisie

Connu jusqu´ici comme un pays de consummation, la Tunisie est en phase de devenir un pays producteur de marijuana. En effet, la multiplication des plantations d´herbes stupéfiantes dans le pays est alarmante.

Pas plus tard que ce lundi 10 juillet, les autorités ont saisi 16 plantes de marijuana dans un terrain abandonné à Rades. Le cultivateur est un homme de la cinquantaine qui vit dans une maison donnant sur le terrain.

La plantation de marijuana par les particuliers est devenue fréquente dans de nombreuses regions du pays. Des cultivateurs seraient meme allés jusqu´à opter pour la marijuana et de la cultivar dans leur champs. La plante est parait il plus rentable.
