Robert, an aging athlete who participated in football and karate for years, was experiencing constant pain in his knee. Before seeking a more permanent solution he, like many others, used over the counter pain medications to continue pursuing his hobbies. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, an orthopaedic surgeon, suggests an alternative solution to a total knee replacement in those who suffer from restrictive osteoarthritis in part of the knee. This condition accounts for 70% of osteoarthritis cases. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum recommends a procedure involving resurfacing part of the knee and using high-density medical plastic and metal on one side. This allows feeling to be retained and leaves the ligaments intact, preventing the need for a second total knee replacement in the event of the first procedure failing. Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum asserts that this alternative solution to a total knee replacement provides relief with minimal trauma to the knee. This procedure is not appropriate for those suffering from rheumatoid arthritis or severe arthritis
Dr. Ira Kirschenbaum, member of The American Academy of Orthopaedic Surgeons and The American Board of Orthopaedic Surgeons, attended The Rothman Institute in Philadelphia to specialize in hip and knee replacement surgeries. He has been a member of both The American Association of Hip and Knee Surgeons and The Orthopaedic Research Society, was on the Board of the Arthritis Foundation in the Hudson Valley Region and worked as the chief of reconstructive surgery at Kaiser Permanente whilst being awarded the prestigious James A. Vohs Award for Quality.

For anyone that is looking to become familiar with the work of Richard Liu Qiangdong, there is an interview dubbed “An Insight, An Idea with Richard Liu” featured on the weforum.org website. Richard Liu is well known in China as the owner of JD.com, the largest web-based commercial retailer. The company is worth a staggering 57 billion dollars. Richard Liu tells the interviewer that he got the idea for JD.com by connecting his name and his wife’s name. The full name of JD.com is Jingdong Mall. It has been in operation since 2004, with Richard Liu working the business world since 1998.
One of the most interesting things about JD.com is that it was different from the other online retailers at the time that it was created. Richard Liu explains to his interviewer that many of the online retailers in China at that time in counterfeit and knockoff items. These items would be of very poor quality and they did not offer returns. He decided that he wanted JD.com to offer good quality items to their customers with a guarantee behind them. He began expanding the business from its original focus of computer parts to almost anything imaginable at this time. He explains that this process took about six years to complete.

Business is not always been so successful for Richard Liu. He had a venture with the restaurant business that did not go well. He explains to his interviewer that he believes the business did not go well because he did not have the time available to him to make it work. Liu learned a lot from that venture and applied those techniques to his growth of JD.com. He believes that success is centered around one’s ability to apply themselves to the work.
This is why JD.com has become so successful. His hope for the future of his company is that they become the number one retailer globally. The main competition that they will see in this market is going to be from Amazon.com. Richard Liu believes that if they continue to offer their products with the guarantees and value that they have offered to the Chinese public it will be a feasible opportunity.
Paul Mampilly, one of the top investors in the United States, believes that Elon Musk, CEO of Tesla, is a victim of fame getting in the head. Since May, Tesla stock has been losing value. Why? Elon Musk outbursts in the media have affected it. He failed to answer questions about the company’s profitability well. His outbursts, however, have nothing to do with Tesla according to Paul Mampilly. He believes the biggest danger to Tesla is the manner in which Elon Musk is handling criticism. Despite his outburst, the company is still one of the best in the world. It is leading in the electric automobile industry and storage of affordable energy and solar energy.
Paul Mampilly agrees that Tesla is going to perform very well in the future, but attention needs to be on the company and not the Elon Musk. Tesla is expected to release the third quarter data and expectations are that it will release promising figures.

Mampilly adds that there is no reason to make investors run away from Tesla since the company is bigger than Elon. The data will be promising and will reinstate investors’ the confidence in the company.

Silver, the precious metal that comes second to gold, has dropped value to a point only experienced five other times this decade. For investment purposes this is great because it means the precious metal can be bought cheap. Investors who pick up some silver at its discounted rate will be in line to earn profits.

Precious metals in general have been dropping in value due to stiff competition. In addition to poor manufacturing numbers markets like cryptocurrency have pushed metals into the background. Silver’s current price is a direct example of the influx within the market. Badiali however is looking at something else. He is looking at the consumption of silver by industry. Most of the silver produced last year was gobbled up by industry, this is because silver is a necessary component to tech. Badiali sees a rise in the use of clean energy. Silver plays an active part in going green as it is used for solar panels. An influx in the market would require more silver. This silver would rise in price as more purchased it. Investors buying now would then see their money double or triple.
