National Steel Car: A Unique Endeavor

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

National Steel Car has always cultivated a reputation for excellence. Current owner and CEO Gregory James Aziz stepped into a role with the company, ready to honor the freight car engineering and manufacturing company’s impeccable reputation. Since it was founded, the company has been headquartered in Hamilton, Ontario. It has been a gem in the community and employed over 3000. Not only is National Steel Car known internationally, but he has also put Hamilton on the map. People the world over travel to do business with the amazing manufacturer because of their razor-sharp focus on quality and their very reasonable prices.


Although National Steel Car has a wonderful reputation today, that hasn’t always been the case. Since it was founded in 1912, the company has experienced more highs than lows but when Gregory Aziz took over, the company was in clear decline. The then owner, Dofasco, knew that they were not going to be able to save the company. Aziz looked at the challenge and knew he had what it took to bring the company back to life. One of the main things that Aziz wanted to be sure of was that he did not coast on National Steel Car’s previous reputation, he wanted to create an identity that honored their history but was also completely unique.


Today, it is very apparent that Greg Aziz was able to meet those goals. National Steel Car is better than it has ever been, historically. One of the major selling points for National Steel Car’s rolling stock is the attention to detail that the workers put into every single piece. In 1996 the company won the TTX SECO award for maintaining the highest quality. They also received ISO certification, which looks at value and quality comparatively for the company to receive it. National Steel Car has maintained both since initially obtaining them. They continuously go through recertification and check their practices to be sure that they are producing the best possible product. See Related Link for more information.


When Aziz obtained his degree in economics from the University of Western Ontario, he knew that he wanted to be a businessman. He was born into a family that had spearheaded the creation of Affiliated Foods, a grocery supply merchandiser, but he has never wanted to ride on the success of others. National Steel Car allowed him to create something amazing while preserving something truly special. There is no doubt that in the future, the company will continue to do great things.

The Inspiration of Dr. David Samadi

Dr. David Samadi is a renowned medical expert who serves as the Chairman of Urology as well as the Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, which is located in New York, NY. Dr. Samadi specializes in diagnosing and treating many urological diseases, including cancer of the kidney and bladder and prostate cancer.

Dr. Samadi is known for his caring philosophy of treating every patient as if they were a family member. Along with his work as a doctor of medicine, Dr. Samadi is also a communicator. He has a website called, which relates health tips, and he is also seen on the Fox television network as a medical expert.

High Tech Treatment Approaches

Dr. Samadi is currently working on a new, hi-tech approach to the removal of the prostate for male patients with prostate cancer. One of the major problems in current techniques for prostate removal is the need for peeling off the nerves surrounding the gland. This can cause serious issues like impotence and incontinence, and these side effects cause many men to delay surgery. Dr. Samadi’s new technique is called SMART surgery, which stands for Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Technique. This technique will allow a surgeon to separate the prostate gland from the nerves with a much higher degree of precision, and should minimize damage to the patient’s sphincter muscle and surrounding nerves.

A Creative Development Process

In recent interviews Dr. Samadi has discussed his approach to developing new ideas for treatment using robotics. Samadi has stated that he likes to work through his ideas by drawing them out, and he acts on ideas that come to him randomly, sometimes at 3AM. Samadi also draws ideas from all sources. He recently found a great inspiration for streamlining his surgical approach by acting on an idea used by the JetBlue Airline. By using the same approach to cleaning up the work area used by the airline, Samadi was able to save more time during the day and make himself more available to the patients who need his care.

Obviously, being a top surgeon and a developer of new surgical techniques isn’t an easy job, but Dr. Samadi’s obvious joy in the process is what keeps him constantly inspired.

Why It Was Expected That Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi Would Be Appointed The Chairman Of Bradesco

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

Banco Bradesco SA has a new chairman: Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. The name is not new to Bradesco, Brazil’s financial sector, or even the whole of Brazil. He is the man that the former President Dilma Rousseff thought (in the first quarter of 2015) that he was best suited to manage the country’s Ministry of Finance. Because of his history with Bradesco that dates back to 1969, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi declined the president’s offer.

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi received the request from the president, he was the CEO of Bradesco; a position he had held beginning in 2009. Also, 2015 was the year that he announced that Bradesco would purchase the Brazilian branch of HSBC Holdings Plc. for $5.2 billion.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is taking over from the 91-year-old Lazaro de Mello Brandao. Brandao was the second chairman of the 74-year-old bank. The outgoing chairman replaced Amador Aguiar, the founder of the bank, in 1990. He was the chairman of Bradesco until October 11, 2017. He resigned having held the position for 25 years.

When Brandao replaced Aguiar as the chairman of Bradesco, he was already the president of the conglomerate. He assumed the presidency of Bradesco in 1981 and retired in 1999 allowing Márcio Cypriano to take over as the president of the bank. However, Brandao continued serving as the chairman.


Brandao and Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi share some similarities. For example, both executives started working at Bradesco as clerk. They joined the company as teenagers, Brandao was only 16 when he became part of the Osasco headquartered bank in 1943; Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was 18-years-old when he started working at the group in 1969. The two have stuck with the company through thick and thin rising through several ranks of the company to become CEOs before eventually taking the chairmanship of the company.

However, the two held different views regarding how vacant leadership positions (such as those of heads of departments) should be filled in the bank. While Brandao thought it was wise to leave such positions to be filled exclusively by deserving Bradesco’s staff, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi advocated for the same, but he remained open-minded. According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, it is imperative to motivate the employees by promoting them, but in case there is lack of talent in the company, bringing experienced employees from competing firms or related companies would not harm the company. In fact, Bradesco would benefit from the new talent (s) regarding management, ideas, expertise, etc.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi who is currently 66-years-old will remain as the CEO of the bank until next year. His term will officially end when he turns 67 as the bank’s bylaws prohibit CEOs from exercising the powers of the office when they are past 67 years.

What’s next for Bradesco? The bank is currently looking for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s replacement. There are seven professionals in prospect; Mauricio Machado de Minas, Alexandre da Silva Gluher, Domingos Figueiredo Abreu, Josué Augusto Pancini, Marcelo de Araujo Noronha, Octavio de Lazari, and André Rodrigues Cano.

It seems that the succession will be done as per Brandao’s wishes as the seven professionals under consideration are already part of Bradesco. In fact, most of them have worked and rose through the ranks just like Brandao and Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. Although all of them are highly qualified, there can only be one CEO at the time. Brandao was appointed CEO of Bradesco when he was 55-years-old, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was 57. All the seven potential CEOs are in their 50’s. Apparently, to be Bradesco’s CEO, you must be 50 years and above.

How the Mix-n-Match Style Changes Your Interiors

posted by: KevKev

Most people don’t feel confident about the mix-n-match style. Unless you are a seasoned interior designer, you may think that it will destroy your nicely planned space and make it look like a medley of contrasting concepts and trends that look like an ugly patchwork. Are you one of these people? Don’t worry! You’re not alone!

Fortunately, a mix-n-match style is not quite unfamiliar these days. The modern designers know how to bring various trends together and create a cohesive design out of them. Find out how it changes your interiors:

Add Interest with Texture. 

Crown molding or decorative wall molding is a great way to jazz up the texture of a particular place. It has lovely architectural property to enhance the appearance of a space. Alex Moulding offered some modern styles that could be perfect with your home interior.

We know that texture is a great instrument in adding visual weight. Molding on the ceiling or wall add interest and keep the room grounded. Use several layers of panels to create a volume so that the elements grab immediate attention. You can also bring traditional or decorative moldings into a modern interior or a sleek profile into a heavily decorated room to create a contrasting effect. 

Personalized Design. 

This style is particularly excellent for offering the scope of bringing together your personal choices and design concepts. For example, if you are thinking of a kitchen makeover, you can mix up high uppers with open space and a single shelf for creating balanced storage and a fresh, artful impact. You can jazz up the look further with new countertops or backsplash.

Make Room for Lonesome Accessories.

 Different types of objects gathered together are visually more compelling than standing lonely. The genre is also perfect to find new places for some unloved elements. For example, if you don’t find any suitable place for some upcycled old pine chairs or some repurposed lamp shades, bring them into your living room. The furnishings and décor of the room will give the newly added items an uplift.

Remember that there are no hard and fast rules for creating a mix and match style. You can apply your won decorating methods and style up a corner or an entire room the way you like. You can add charm and sweetness to an all-white room with leather elements, decorative elements, and colorful showpieces or sober up a vibrant place with matte finishes and neutral colors.

Enhance a Room with Patterns.

 When you think of an eclectic design, patterns are one of the first things that will come to your mind. Mixing patterns and hues can create an adventurous décor and make a room sing. One way to keep harmony while combining various prints is to have something common in them to tie them together. It could be a matching color or a theme. Otherwise, you can also layer one main color with two or more accent hues.


Restraint is the Key 

Mixing and matching mean pairing up various elements that belong to different genres. However, you should practice restraint so that a room does not look like a circus tent. If you are using fabrics for creating patterns, don’t incorporate more than three or four types. Besides, use plenty of neutrals in between to break the busy patterns if necessary.

You can also do it by bringing a couple of pieces of a furniture or accessory in a similar color but different shapes. For example, if you bring six chairs for your dining table in the same color but six different designs, you will create an excellent eclectic appearance without making it look too over-stimulating.  

If you can decode the mystery of the mix-n-match style, you will have the confidence to navigate the design process. It liberates you from the age-old concept of sticking to just one school of thought. As it can bring positive changes to your home, apply the ideas when you are dealing with a renovation project.

Imran Haque and the Great Things He Has Done for the Tar Heel State

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

The middle of North Carolina is home to lots of rural areas that don’t have as much economic activity as their larger counterparts. This often results in less medical care for patients that really need it, bad for communities at large. Imran Haque realized when he was in medical school that he needed to work in a rural area so he could make families feel better and monitor their performance and feelings over the years, hopefully taking care of them for the rest of Dr. Haque’s many years planned for the Asheboro and Ramseur areas.

This popular doctor is the owner and operator of Horizon Internal Medicine, a clinic that he operates for as a business and as a physician. He is one of the top doctors in Ramseur because it is not very large and he has been working for over 15 years, more than most doctors in the area – not to mention most doctors in general.

Haque offers a lot of different types of services, many of which are to increase the aesthetics of patients’ skin. Not many rural residents are privileged enough to have affordable places that perform these services. However, all the residents of central North Carolina know they can visit Dr. Imran for whatever problems they may have.

They might have to wake several weeks to get to see him because he’s so popular, but virtually everybody in the area knows that his services rival those of the best medical doctors in the entire Southeast United States of America.

Dr. Haque graduated from medical school in 1998, then going to the University of Virginia for a residency program. He finished in 2001 and immediately went to North Carolina to work at a hospital and slowly work up the number of patients he regularly saw.
