According to Da Vinci, “Simplicity is the ultimate sophistication.” This statement has become the favorite quote of one of the foremost scientific minds of our time, Jorge Moll. Moll believes that we should not sit on ideas, but either put them to use or discard them quickly. Perhaps this forward-motivated mindset is one reason why this renowned neurologist continues to accomplish so much.
Jorge Moll received an MD in Neuroscience from Federal University of Rio de Janiero in 1994, also completing his residency there in 1998. Moll continued on to receive a Ph.D. in Experimental Pathophysiology from São Paulo University in 2004. Moll’s lifelong desire has always been to enhance the ability of healthcare to improve patients’ quality of life. Some of the projects he is currently involved in include topics such as the neural correlation between human values and motivations, the neuropsychiatry of moral cognition and social conduct, and studies in neuroplasticity. Yet even with these complex topics, Moll manages to devote much of his time to a belief in the fundamental exchange of ideas and increased collaboration across various medical fields.
Moll joined D’Or Institution of Research and Education in 2004, later becoming president of that non-profit organization, which seeks to advance scientific and technical progress in health care. Moll also became the Director of the Cognitive & Behavioral Neuroinformatics Unit, a leading diagnostics and imaging laboratory. One of Moll’s goals is the development of world-class research, education, healthcare, and awareness, not only in his home country of Brazil but around the world.
In meetings with students, researchers and entrepreneurs from a wide range of organizations, Moll speaks about some topics of greatest interest to him, such as artificial intelligence, the interaction of machines and the human brain, and regenerative medicinal gene therapy. Moll is passionate in his belief that we can positively impact lives and industry by doing things of interest to us. By not repeating the same actions over and over and always questioning the model we’ve been given, we can convert new ideas into a plan of action and allow for creative collaboration between many scientific mediums.

Other companies that have played a crucial role in the establishment of the company include Riverstone Holdings as well as Apollo Global Management. To the surprise of many, the Mexican government mentioned that it would allow international companies to drill oil in the country. This was an unexpected move as the Mexican oil was nationalized 80 years ago meaning that only the Mexican government could control the oil. However, reports in Mexico say that the company resulted in these measures to rescue their ailing oil industry.
This new move has seen three companies move into the country for the project that will cost them $16 million. These three companies are from the United Kingdom, the United States and Mexico. Talos Energy is the company from the US while Premier Oil is the UK based company. On the other hand, Sierra Oil & Gas is the Mexican based company. Petroleos Mexicanos is the government owned company that has been drilling oil for the last 80 years. This new coalition will be used as a benchmark for future deals. This is according to Edison Investment which is a research company from the United Kingdom. Ownership of this deal is in the ratio of 35: 40: 25 to Talos, Sierra and Premier respectively.

Mexicano, the Sushi chain restaurant network of Omar Yunes, won the Best Franchisee of the World (BFW) Award on Dec. 5, 2015. The franchise competition took place in Florance, Italy, and it recognized Omar’s contributions to the brand, Sushi Itto, he represents. His network comprises 13 units that are located in Puebla, Mexico City, and Veracruz. It should be noted that his units represent around 10% of the total number of the units the brand has.
