At certain points in our lives, we are all faced with negative incidences that truly test our resolve. How we respond to these incidences, show both our character and humanity. For Anthony Petrello, one such incident was the birth of his daughter, Carena, with PVL (periventricular leukomalacia). As a result, she developed certain developmental delays for which medicine is yet to find cures.Nothing prepares a man for such adversity, most especially a very busy one used to having control. Anthony ‘Tony’ Petrello if the CEO, President, and Chairman of the Board of one of the leading drilling contractor companies in the world, Nabor Industries Ltd. As the company’s leader, he oversees over 29 thousand employees and billions of dollars worth of assets. Even a look through his educational and professional journey shows a man that was always in charge of his destiny. He studied at both Harvard and Yale and had a greatly successful stint as a lawyer with the revered law firm, Baker, and McKenzie. He had almost always achieved the objectives he set out to achieve.
Fortunately, while his role at Nabor significantly occupied Mr. Petrello’s time, it did leave him as a man of means. It would, therefore, have been easy for him to cover the cost of managing Carena’s condition. He, however, made a different decision. A decision that would provide hope, not only for Carena but also for other children facing the same challenges.Mr. Petrello and his wife Cynthia decided to invest their own money in pediatric brain research targeted at finding answers to the problems children diagnosed with PVL have. The two arrived at this decision after searching and failing to find a pediatric research institution in the country that runs a similar program.
After identifying the Jan and Dan Neurological Research Institute at Texas Children Hospital as the most appropriate research facility, Anthony and Cynthia donated a substantial $5 million towards the research program. They also committed to raise their donation to $7 and take charge of efforts to raise additional funding and resources.If successful, this research program will positively change the lives of children born with PVL, and their families, all around the world.
The Internet of Things is a modern phenomenon that is going to change the entire world of technology starting this next couple of years. Don’t believe it? Then listen to Jason Hope, an entrepreneur, startup developer of success and technology specialist. According to the expert Jason Hope, the Internet of Things, or IoT for abbreviation, is one of the biggest advancements in the tech industry that society has experienced since the Internet itself.The famous Gartner Inc. published that the Internet of Things would be connected to as many as 25 billion objects by 2020. This insane prediction is not far from the truth, with every big company pursuing the new technology. Google, Microsoft, and Apple are all implementing the new network to their new releases for the future.
This new technology, states Jason Hope, is a way that technology developers found to connect everyday gadgets together with the same way that computers are linked through the network. By using their own connections with each device having a dedicated IP, utensils as common as light bulbs, watches, and refrigerators, will be able to connect with sensors to perform certain actions that were never possible before this new technology. “IoTized products” will now be able to share data among themselves through their network.
Among most promising IoT products, cars are showing great potential to use the technology for the advancement of how cars can perform certain actions without the command of the driver, for example. On the same note, it can be used in streets to send detailed information on the current traffic of that location. The possibilities are endless.
One of the most impressive uses of the Internet of Things that can exemplify what the technology is able to do is how it was implemented by airlines to monitor their airplanes while on the flight.The plane is completely connected to the network, and all parts of the machine are linked to each other and then with the central headquarters. Then, whenever the plane shows signs of malfunctioning, the central receives the warning, and the plane will have its components replaced before it flies again after he landed.Jason Hope, author at Tech.Co where he published his opinions on the subject, is on the board of Arizona Science Center as the director of the group, and he is currently working at Mobile Technology.
