Chronic diseases account for nearly seven in ten deaths every year across the United States. With the technology that modern medicine has given us, many of these could be avoided with preventive health care. The health care services offered by Life Line Screening are an excellent way to detect health problems which might become serious down the road. This proactive approach includes procedures such as blood tests, ultrasound, and vascular tests that identify the different risk factors that an individual might face.
Life Line Screening uses ultrasound to measure bone density to check for osteoporosis risk, and to examine arteries to screen for carotid artery disease, abdominal aortic aneurysm, and peripheral arterial disease. A limited electrocardiograph is used to detect the risk factor of atrial fibrillation, a condition that can lead to stroke, heart failure, and blood clots. Life Line Screening tests are administrated by medical professionals and require little to no preparation on the part of the individual. Some results such as blood tests can be available the day of testing. Other results can be mailed out within 15 days. You can share these results with your physician and develop a plan if any issues are found.
Life Line employs the same type of testing equipment that is used in hospitals and the results are sent to certified physicians for evaluation. They also make available a health e-newsletter to help the individual with their overall wellness lifestyle. They can also set up a corporate wellness program with businesses, unions, and organizations so that employees and members can become proactive with their health. Not every test that Life Line available for health industry is for everyone. Factors such as medical history, family history, personal preferences, and specific risk factors will determine the tests that are right for a particular person.
With data collected from over eight million people who have been screened, Life LIne has gained a better understanding of cardiovascular disease and the steps that are necessary to prevent it.

Despite being a new company in the oil industry, Talos Energy is building a name for itself. At the moment, the company is headquartered from Houston, Texas. The company has maintained a small number of employees as it currently has 200 employees. The company’s major tasks in the Gulf of Mexico include oil and gas exploration and drilling. The company was established in the year 2012. The company’s LinkedIn page explains that most of its employees are former workers of Phoenix Exploration as well as Gryphon Exploration. Other than gas and oil exploration, the company specializes in the acquisition of assets in this region.
The company’s LinkedIn page also reveals that the firm was established through a partnership of two institutions. The partnership involved Riverstone Holdings and another firm called Apollo Global Management. Major departments within Talos Energy include engineering department, accounting department, research, and operations department.
For the last eight decades, drilling of oil in the Mexican waters was left to the Petroleos Mexicanos. This is a Mexican government-owned corporation that was formed in the year 1938 when the government nationalized its oil. However, changing economic times and an ailing oil industry has seen the Mexican government allow international companies drill oil in the country. The project will be implemented by three companies that are Premier Oil from London, Talos Energy as well as Sierra Oil & Gas from Mexico. Ownership of this deal is not proportional. Premier has an ownership of 25 percent while Sierra has an ownership of 40 percent. As for Talos Energy, they gave an ownership of 35 percent.
This project by these three companies is expected to last for three months and will cost them approximately $16 million. However, the returns are high as the amount of crude oil expected to be drilled from this project is estimated at 100 million barrels to 500 million barrels. The Mexican government revealed the details of this project saying that the project is being carried in Sureste Basin that is located in Tabasco State. This project is expected to be used as the benchmark as it’s the first of its kind in many years.
