Talos Energy Leads the Way into the Gulf of Mexico

Mexico’s recent reform of its long standing energy policy is already starting to benefit U.S oil interests. Houston based Talos Energy LLC, has partnered with Premier Oil Plc from the UK and Sierra Oil & Gas of Mexico, and begun drilling the first privately own off-shore well in Mexican waters in over 80 years. This is a huge step forward in terms of privatizing the Mexican oil sector, which since 1938 has been monopolized by the state run Petroleos Mexicanos. It’s little wonder that Talos Energy is at the vanguard of this newly opened market full of promise and opportunity considering its history.
Originally started as Phoenix Exploration by Tim Duncan and his partners during the height the Great Recession, the team developed a knack for finding and drilling only the most profitable locations. As the economy recovered, Phoenix managed to double in size by 2011 and was sold off. Tim and his team then formed a new company under the banner of Talos Energy which continues the legacy of smart exploration and drilling. Talos’s success and prosperity can be directly attributed to Duncan’s own personal work ethic and entrepreneurial spirit.
Duncan, who started his career as a reservoir engineer manager makes sure every employee is invested in the success of the company by offering everyone down the to receptionist a stake in the equity. His tireless work and late night company emails come with a clear message that he’s not just in it to make himself rich, he wants to make everyone rich. So then it’s little wonder then that a newcomer like Talos has attracted international partners and made so much headway into the energy market over the last few years. Despite it’s relative youth, Talos is not taking a backseat to its partners in the Gulf of Mexico. Talos has a solid 35% stake in the well, Zama-1, and will be in charge of operation. Drilling started on May 21st and is expected to complete in 90 days.

Cássio Audi Transitioned From Rock & Roll To The Corporate Universe

When Cássio Audi began his musical career, he quickly became famous in many parts of Brazil as the drummer for a band called Viper in the mid and late 1980’s. Viper still retains some of its original members, of which Cassio Audi was a part of. Viper came to be in 1985 with only two demo songs: Projeto SP Metal and The Killera Sword. The original band formation was André Matos as lead singer, Pit Passarell on the bass guitar, Yves Passarem on the electric guitar, Felipe Machado on the electric guitar, and Cassio Audi on the drums.

Viper was a big hit with the album “Soldiers of Sunrise”, which is until present, still considered to be among the best heavy metal records produced in Brazil.

In 1987, Junior Andrade on the keyboard joined Viper. His influence on the band gave it a more melodic quality. Some people feel that his influence made the band cease to be a true heavy metal band. It is not certain, but it is possible that Cássio Audi left Viper for this reason and transitioned to a career in the corporate universe. Viper continues to play with Pit Passarell on the bass guitar, vocals and backing vocals, Felipe Machado on the electric guitar, Leandro Caçoilo on vocals, Hugo Mariutti on the electric guitar, and Guilherme Martins on the drums who was Cássio Audi’s replacement.

Currently, Cássio Audi enjoys his career as a notorious investment manager with exceptional experience; and has been the CEO and CFO for several multinational companies and Brazilian companies.

Success Academy Prepares Students for Scholarly Paths

Public schools in the United States are failing, especially in metropolitan areas. Even schools with an abundance of funding can produce students with below average proficiency in math, English and science. Parents who want their children to succeed sometimes have their hands tied. Not everyone can afford to put their children in private schools or take off work in order to homeschool. Charter schools offer an attractive alternative. Public charter schools such as the Success Academy in New York City offer rigorous curriculum that prepares students for success. Tuition is free, but a limited amount of students are accepted into the lottery based program. The students who attend are often disadvantaged, but have an opportunity to turn their lives and futures around through the Success Academy’s educational program.

Public charter school students often come from minority, low-income, single-parent families. Though the Success Academy’s students start out with academic disadvantages, they enjoy close to 100 percent proficiency rates in English and math. Public schools in the same area have proficiency scores in the single digits or low to mid teens. Success Academy employs intensive and challenging curriculum that requires students to work hard, strict rules, dress codes, and consequences for breaking the rules. Students are there to engage and learn, and won’t be allowed to coast through like they might in public schools.

Success Academy currently has 41 schools in New York City, educating 14,000 students in elementary school, middle school and high school. While Success Academy is granted more independence than zoned schools for curriculum, they are still accountable to the state for student performance. The teachers and leadership in the school work closely together to ensure that each student succeeds, and follows a track that will advantage them in the future. Unlike public schools, Success Academy doesn’t just teach material for tests, but teaches core knowledge and critical thinking skills. Success Academy is similar to traditional schools in that a variety of electives are available to students including sports, dance, chess, debate, and robotics.

Success Academy’s numbers show their success. In New York state they are ranked in the top 1% for math, the top 2% for English, and the top 5% for science. English language learners and students with disabilities also score among the top percentile for their group.
