These mostly included songs from the then-popular English metal band, Iron Maiden. Cassio was the drummer in this band the group and they quickly named themselves Viper.

The demo tape was then played all over Brazilian radio and the band began to gain popularity.

With Cassio Audi’s hard-hitting drum solos and their uncanny ability to sing their lyrics in perfect English, the band began to get recognition worldwide. In 1987 the group recorded their first studio album, Soldiers of Sunrise, which became a success. They toured Brazil and Europe that same year, drawing larger crowds than anyone expected. They recorded their second album, Theatre of Fate in 1989 and the album was a huge success, particularly in Japan.Cassio Audi left the band to attend college in 1989 and never returned to the band.

Founder and Chief Investment Officer of Kerrisdale Capital, Sahm Adrangi, recently shorted another biotech company’s stock. With a history of predicting failure with his investments, things do not look good for Prothena’s amyloidosis drug that Adrangi indicates has absolutely no chance of being a success.

His actions led to several companies having actions taken against them by the Securities and Exchange Commission; these companies included ChinaCast Education and China Education Alliance. Adrangi and his company Kerrisdale Capital want to make sure that the information that they uncover about these companies is accessible, to do this he shares what he finds on Twitter, Kerrisdale’s own website, and other investing sites.

According to Perry Mandera, founder, owner and president of North Lake, Illinois based transportation and logistics service firm The Custom Companies, Inc., a bill of lading is of great importance and has a very significant purpose. Mandera, who has been involved in the transportation industry for over 40 years, said a bill of lading has three essential purposes. It’s evidence a company has a contract of carriage, it’s a receipt of goods and it’s also a document title for the goods. This document helps ensure smooth operation of the shipping chain. Follow Perry Mandera on linkedin.com.

Contract Of Carriage

As a contract of carriage, a bill of lading is often used in litigation to address questions related to shipping. It ensures a seller’s parameters are met when a carrier possesses cargo it has been contracted to deliver. Should the bill of lading be incorrectly filled out, criminal charges can be brought against the carrier.

Receipt Of Goods

A bill of lading is proof cargo to be shipped has been received by the carrier. The document can also prove the cargo was in good condition when the carrier received it. If a buyer receives damaged goods, the seller can use the bill of lading to determine whether the manufacturer or the carrier was at fault.

Title To Goods Transported

With a bill of lading the holder can transfer the right to claim transported goods to another party. This power is helpful in negotiations in some cases. The carrier can hold the bill of lading until they receive full payment for their services. They can also transfer those rights to another party to ensure the goods are delivered.

1938 was the last time it happened: A oil well was drilled off the shores of Mexico by Petroleos Mexicanos, a state-owned company at the time. On May 21, 2017, it happened again, this time as a joint project between three energy companies, Talos Energy LLC of Houston, Premier Oil Plc of London, and Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas. The drilling operation was expected to take ninety days to complete and cost around $16 million.The Zama-1 well is located off the coast of the Mexican state of Tabasco in the Sureste Basin and was expected to produce anywhere between 100 and 500 million barrels of crude oil. Elaine Reynolds, an analyst with Edison Investment Research Ltd. stated that the location made it likely to be a success because of the geological characteristics of the basin.

“As the first non-Pemex well to be drilled since the opening up of Mexican waters as part of the country’s energy reform process, this well will be keenly watched by the industry,” she concluded. Analyst Charlie Sharp of Canaccord Genuity Ltd. also noted the project would be the most watched this year because of its importance after the Mexican reforms to their energy market. The country’s goal to attract foreign energy companies to its oil reserves has begun to pay off.

Ash Shepard, Talos Energy’s commercial manager in Mexico won Oil and Gas Investor’s Thirty Under 40 award for his part in making the initial contracts a reality, which were the first to be finalized since the 2013 Constitutional Energy Reforms there. In part due to his own efforts, Talos Energy had become the first foreign energy company to develop an oil well in Mexico since 1938.Headquartered in Houston, Talos Energy LLC is a private energy firm with a focus on exploration and production of oil reserves in the Gulf Coast and Gulf of Mexico. The company is well funded with backing from Riverstone Holdings LLC, Apollo Global Management LLC, and their own management.
