The new type of lending isn’t even based on traditional margin based loans, and offers a more favorable fixed interest rate that is around 3.5%. The company that is behind this revolutionary form of lending is a company that has been active for the last 16 years. Equities First Holdings is the name of the company, and on their resume they have handled over $1.4 billion in global transactions. Alternative lending is still in its baby stage of development, but it will prove to become a common form of lending for companies and individuals who might not qualify for other forms of credit based lending. For some entities, they simply might not want to use business or personal credit for loans.

Richard Liu went to university in Beijing where being of an entrepreneurial mindset he established a restaurant business which unfortunately collapsed.
After graduation, his grandmother was sick and since his family could not afford to pay for her treatment he needed to start working in order to help her. Richard Liu explains that at the time many young graduates leaving the university were interested in working in the civil service, he did not want to do that so he started physical retail stores. These retail stores were the beginning of JD.com in 1998 and became fully online in 2004. The shift was occasioned by the SARS epidemic in 2002 and one of the store’s managers suggested selling online.
Today, Jingdong’s logistical network has grown to cover even the most remote parts of China. Richard Liu Qiangdong pointed out that 57% of deliveries take place within 6 hours and 97% is done within 20 hours.

Talos Energy in conjunction with their Zama project recently announced the discovery of over 2 billion barrels of oil in the Gulf of Mexico. The area in question is however located adjacent to a block owned by PEMEX, Mexico’s state-run oil company. Tim Duncan, Chief Executive Officer of Talos Energy immediately called for a partnership with PEMEX in order to better research the areas around the newly discovered oil deposit. The partnership would include the sharing of data with PEMEX as well as a consortium with Britians Premiere oil and Mexico’s Sierra Oil and Gas.
The goal of reaching a partnership deal with PEMEX was however seen as wishful thinking at the time. This was due to a long-standing tradition by the Mexican government to bar all partnerships with outside entities. The practice goes back to the early days of the current Mexican government and was placed to protect the countries resources. However, in the years to come, PEMEX would grow to be so corrupted that the Mexican government cut the funding and began a 14-year slump for the oil company.
Tim Duncan, however, would find his opportunity in recently elected President-elect Andres Manuel Lopez Obrador. Throughout his campaign, President-elect Obrador promised the restoration of PEMEX to its once glory days of economic power. Both parties quickly agreed to a partnership and with the quick approval of the Zama project appraisal plan by Mexico’s oil regulator the plan to explore two new wells was underway. The Zama project calls for an investment by Talos Energy and partners of $325 million to drill two new wells and conduct research on other areas of the Gulf of Mexico throughout 2019. Drilling will begin in late November of 2018 with an estimated 150,000 barrels per day being produced by 2023. Although Talos Energy stated that they will still need time to construct additional platforms, the time will allow them to conduct patient and precise research in order to collect the best possible data.

Dr. Saad Saad is an experienced doctor with his speciality being a pediatric surgeon who has done many surgeries in his lifetime based out of New Jersey and in an article from Chronicleweek.com, shares his knowledge on concussions and the importance of getting children vaccinated. Saad Saad has been able to research both topics and provide parents with answers to these two complex issues with concussions being the first one on the list as repeated hits to the head from sports that can cause long-term issues of brain cognition and more. Saad Saad describes a concussion as a hit to the head that causes it to jolt back, which then causes damage to the brain or a concussion. There are many different signs that someone has a concussion that includes dizziness, bad headaches, slurred speech, vomiting, nausea, and even loss of consciousness. Any child that has these symptoms means that they have a concussion and one can tell from looking at an individual. It can be tricky though as some people will not have any symptoms till hours later and forget or have it right away and know that something is wrong. Parents should watch their kids carefully the doctor notes after an injury such as this to see if it progresses and see if it heals. Much needed sleep and taking it easy is the only things a child can do to heal and everyone’s concussion can be different, with some taking longer than others. Dr. Saad Saad mentions that in some cases, a concussion can last for up to a month and the doctor recommends that children take some time off from an exercise that is causing them trauma to the head. Sports like football and soccer can cause concussions and people need to be careful because one can cause others to arise easily and if it keeps happening a decision to quit needs to come into effect to stop significant damage to the head. Parents will need to comfort their children after an injury like this and support them as the recovery process can be quite frustrating. Dr. Saad Saad then goes into the next complex issues of vaccines and supports getting children vaccinated because it eliminates the risk of contracting deadly and severe diseases. Vaccines have throughout history helped fix the onset of diseases like smallpox, which killed many. Vaccines contain a much weaker form of the disease so the body fights off the injected form and creates antibodies to fix it, which causes protection from it for the rest of an individuals life. Dr. Saad Saad even lists 5 different reasons to why children should get vaccinated with the first being in its history of eliminating diseases, being safe, protecting all children, saving time and money, and being good for the future. The doctor also tackles the misconceptions that vaccines cause autism, which he believes is false.
