A Couple of New Treatments for Clinical Depression

On January 26, 2016, the U.S. Preventative Service made it a requirement to screen all adults being treated by clinicians for clinical depression. This could also mean consensual screenings with medical physicians. The screenings are especially designed for pregnant women due to the fact that the physical changes and the psychological stress of the coming childbirth can result in clinical depression.

Simultaneously, in partnership with Jon Urbana and Ellipse USA (on behalf of Earth Force), Albert “Skip” Rizzo and his team at the Institute for Creative Technologies have designed and created a program named Ellie that has the ability to detect depression by scanning physiological signs such as voice tone and duration of the smile. For example, those struggling with clinical depression often do smile as much but it’s usually one that is more out of obligation than one that comes from true inner thoughts. Ellie will also be extended to scanning former combat soldiers for PTSD (post traumatic stress disorder).

There is also increasing support with treating depression with monitored prescriptions of ketamine. It has also been found that spending time in nature often helps to reduce the risk of depression. Clinical depression is currently believed the be the result of faulty connections between the brain cells that control mood. Also, a sense of isolation and loneliness makes for a high risk of depression because humans are hardwired to want a sense of interpersonal connection.

There is not one single cookie cutter cause of clinical depression, there are many. As a result, the psychology and science fields are working to find ways that will help people individually.

From Investment Banker to Millionaire Philanthropist: Sanjay Shah’s journey.

Sanjay Shah worked in the investment banking industry for 20 years. He worked for financial institutions such as Morgan Stanley, Merrill Lynch, Credit Suisse, ING, and Dutch bank Rabobank. Over the years, he worked his way up to head of trading before the financial crisis of 2009 left him unemployed. Discouraged with the day to day grind of commuting to and sitting in an office all day, Shah decided to embark on a new journey and start his own company. Thus, Solo Capital was born.

He knew running a business would be difficult, especially in the beginning stages, but he persevered. In just five years he has accrued a net worth of close to 300 million dollars. The success of Solo Capital has enabled Shah to decrease the amount of time he puts into the business, delegating most of the work to others. This left him time to pursue other business ventures and become more involved in philanthropic endeavors.

In 2011, when Shah’s son was diagnosed with autism he didn’t hesitant to help with the cause. That’s when he began to have a focus for his philanthropic vision. He donated money to the Dubai Autism Centre which is a center that help families with autistic children. When he approached the center they informed him they needed new buses so he immediately purchased the buses.

Shah still felt that there was more that he could do. He felt it best to focus more efforts towards research. He believes that autism needs to be understood better in order to help children more effectively. In effort to do more Shah mixed his love of music with his desire to help aid autism research and created Autism Rocks. He used his connections from college to help him get his venture off the ground. His organization host private concerts throughout the world to raise money for research. He has gotten performers such as Prince, Elvis Costello, and Joss Stone to assist in his efforts.

Shah has enormous plans for Autism Rocks. The connections that he has made during his career and the financial capital he amassed allows him to make a big difference for those who deal with Autism.

I Can Say I’m Truly Proud Of My Private Area Because Of Dr. Jennifer Walden

I like looking at myself in the mirror, and honestly, I like what I see. I’ve been with the same man for five years, and we got married after we were together for over three years. I never let anyone look between my legs, but my husband has seen everything that I have down there. Unfortunately, I asked him one day to show me what I look like down there, and he gave me two mirrors to help me see myself. I couldn’t believe how ugly it looked, and I became very ashamed when it was time for us to have sex. I didn’t want my husband touching me below my waist, and I certainly didn’t want him looking down there anymore.

My labia didn’t look as good as I wanted it to, and I decided surgery was necessary to fix the problem. I looked up the top Texas plastic surgeon, who specialized in labiaplasty, and Dr. Jennifer Walden came up in my search. I found out that they could cut off the extra skin in my labia area, and I could be put back together to look a certain way that would be more appealing to my eyes. I contacted Dr. Jennifer Walden, and our consultation was a very informative one. She let me know the risks, the benefits, and how the procedure would be performed.

I brought my husband with me to be my support system, even though he tried to talk to the doctor and tell her to have me change my mind. After Dr. Jennifer Walden explained to my husband why I felt the way I did, he finally understood, and he chose to support me to get the surgery. When I went in for my surgery, my nerves were shot. If it wasn’t for Dr. Walden calming me down, I probably would’ve changed my mind and left. I’m still very glad that I got the surgery performed because I honestly can say that I love the way I look in my vaginal area now, and I’m happy with the work that Dr. Jennifer Walden performed.

George Soros Is Looking To Angela Merkel For Answers

FX Street first brought reports of an interview between George Soros and the New York Review of Books. Soros was speaking with the book review about a number of topics, but the most important topic was the refugee crisis in Europe. Millions of people have fled the middle east, and countries across Europe are shouldering the burden or all these new citizens. This article explains why George believes Angela Merkel is the only person who can solve the crisis.

#1: George Ties The Greek Financial Crisis To German Authority

Germany charged interest rates many times higher than normal to punish Greece for being in such a position, and George believes that the Greek crisis was allowed to get worse and worse because of German involvement. The festering situation became so bad that the whole of the EU could have collapsed, and he believes that Angela Merkel could have done a better job leading her country.

#2: Germany Must Make A Decision

Angela Merkel announced an open door policy to immigrants, but the German people have steadily begun to disagree with such a policy. The people are at odds with the government over how the migrants will be handled, and Merkel herself said that the migrant crisis could destroy the EU. This prediction could become true if Germany is not careful, and the people of Germany could be worked into a frenzy that is not necessary. George is hoping that cooler heads will prevail during this most critical time.

#3: George Believes In The Power Of Words

George Soros runs the Open Society Foundation to promote democracy, but he knows that Angela Merkel’s prediction could come true if Germans take it seriously. A consensus could occur among Germans who want to push migrants out of the country, and each nation will spend millions more to deal with the migrant crisis. Money will be wasted in every country because of a careless prediction, and George himself does not have the resources to help everyone who is fleeing Syria.

#4: A Comprehensive Plan

George wants the EU to formulate a comprehensive plan to handle the migrant crisis. The crisis could be managed when all countries come together to help every one of the migrants. Leaving everyone to settle in Germany will tear the country apart, and rhetoric from the chancellor will become more and more problematic. George hopes that Angela Merkel will back off her stance, call for a better plan and lead the EU to a wise decision on the migrant crisis

George Soros manages the Open Society Foundation for the promotion of democracy and to help the oppressed. He is very concerned about the people who are leaving Syria, and he does not want to see them demonized by a government. George believes that Angela Merkel can put a stop to the madness with better leadership, but he cannot force her to do so. A waiting game has begun to learn if Germany will treat the refugees as humans and not a liability.

Autism Rocks – A Charity That’s Changing Lives for Autistic Children

In 2011, Sanjay Shah and his wife had to take their son to the doctor. The problem was that he could not keep his food down. The doctor suggested that the couple seek help from a behavioural psychologist who specializes in children. The psychologist determined that their young son had a disorder called autism. In fact, there are many studies that link food intolerance to the autistic condition.

The couple sought out multiple doctors in order to receive a second opinion. The results were the same. A blood test was the final confirmation. Shah wasted no time in applying ABA (Applied Behaviour Analysis) to his son. This type of therapy aims at getting the child to develop faster than they otherwise might.

When back in their hometown of Dubai, the couple visited the Dubai Autism Centre. This resource is funded by the Dubai government to help families that have autistic children. They were told that their son would need to wait up to 5 years to receive treatment due to the long waiting list. However, he was able to pay for the treatment and hire therapists to look after Nikhil. He realized that other families out there cannot afford this type of round-the-clock treatment. This is when he asked the centre what they needed. The centre said they could use money but more immediately they needed minibuses that the kids could be transported in.

Right away, Shah purchased two Hyundai mini buses for the centre. He realized that there was a large potential to raise money for this cause. He has done this with the charity, which holds concerts and raises money.

Sanjay Shah is the president and CEO of Solo Capital. One of his 3 children has autism. This inspired him to fund the Autism Rocks charity during 2014. Furthermore, he is the founder and CEO of Autism Rocks. This allows him to put his efforts into raising awareness about the condition. He has arranged special concerts in London and Dubai for the charity. The musical acts at these events include people like Drake, Snoop Dogg, Prince, Michael Bublé, and more.

He is also on the board, as a trustee, of Autism Research Trust. This organization helps with donations to the Autism Research Centre at Cambridge University. He has directed the trust going back to 2013. Together with his wife – Usha Shah – he has made numerous charitable contributions. He is also the CEO of Solo Capital Partners.

Kyle Bass Media Appearance and Controversies

Kyle Bass, the founder of Hayman Capital Management hedge fund joined CNBC’s Halftime Report traders on January 8, 2016 to discuss the market outlook for 2016 and the effects of China’s volatility on the US economy. Unlike most people, who believe China’s downturn is as a result of peaked profits, Kyle is a strong believer that the problem lies in the country’s banking system. He opines that the banking system in the country has outgrown its GDP, since it is now worth $35 trillion against the country GDP of $10 trillion.

Another member in the panel, Marc Lasry of Avenue Capital agreed with Kyle’s observations on excessive lending by Chinese banks. Kyle Boss also takes a bearish look at the US markets. He conjures that the markets in US will witness a 10 to 20 percent downturn by the end of 2016. Kayle is however quick to add that the problem will not be as dire as what was witnessed during the global financial crisis. On credit matters, Kyle points out that lack of credit growth in emerging markets will be a huge cause of concern.
