A Woman Is Pregnant Following a Robot-Assisted Uterus Transplant

Futurism | January 10, 2019

For a woman born without a healthy uterus, or without a uterus at all, the dream of giving birth to a baby used to be unattainable. But in 2014, a woman gave birth to a baby after receiving a  uterus transplant. Since then, 12 others have followed in her footsteps.
On Wednesday, researchers announced that a patient who underwent a uterine transplant assisted by robots - which researchers say sharply decreased risks associated with the futuristic procedure - is now pregnant, with the baby due this spring. If all goes well with that delivery, the baby will be the firstborn following a robot-assisted uterine transplant - but likely not the last.

Successful project management needs to have a sturdy plan, clearly defined objectives, and results that provide project insight. Within construction and engineering, these results are key for planning. See what can be achieved by using a project management tool that gives a closed-loop approach into campaign execution.

Ozop Energy Solutions and Hyde Engineering to Bring Neo-Grid to Market

Ozop Energy Solutions | November 29, 2021

Ozop Energy Solutions. (OZSC), (“Ozop” or the “Company”), announces that after several months of analyzing the developmental direction of the energy markets and defining the needs of the “new” energy demand and logistical challenges incurred by the rapidly expanding Electric Vehicle market, the Company has elected to engage Hyde Engineering Services, Inc. (“HES”) to produce the conceptual design of the Neo-Grid. The conceptual design includes the charging, transportation, and the discharging of energy into Level 3 chargers. HES provides electrical, mechanical, structural, and architectural engineering designs for permitting and construction. HES holds PE licenses in 23 States and has a history of technical engineering and service for commercial, industrial, and utility-connected advanced energy projects, including solar, storage, microgrids, EV charging, and backup generation. To date, HES has designed and interconnected over 175MW of distributed energy resource projects across the US and internationally. “This begins the development phase for the proof-of-concept prototype that we have been seeking. With our experience in energy storage, technology and EVs we will move forward from the conceptual idea to proof of concept then prospectively to a commercial ready prototype in approximately eight months. Our team has calculated the numbers on many levels and followed the market as it continues to mature. Once this is deployed it will be a great day for the industry and of course for OZOP”, Hyde shares our vision and the outside-the-box way of thinking, making our blueprint for Energy Mobility a reality” -Brian Conway CEO of Ozop Energy Solutions, Inc. Current applications to energize EVs are all Grid reliant which is a serious and seminal flaw in the current infrastructure build out manifesting in California’s continual rolling blackouts and with the east coast’s existing infrastructure seriously deficient and obsolete; California’s experience can become a National one in short order. This represents among other things Ozop’s attempt to help facilitate and support the National initiatives in the recently passed National Infrastructure Legislation. Most suburban and urban utilities are heavily reliant on investor supported grid-tied storage to alleviate the high-demand hours on the grid, however, that will take decades of work. OZOP has developed the Neo Grid that is not geographically tied, can support multi-MW demands and is not exposed to any grid-tied regulation of power supply. The Neo Grid proof of concept will prove-out our distribution plan and our modular engineering design by deploying to real life applications. In addition, it will confirm our financial model and validate our energy loss calculations defining resistance losses from the usable energy coming from storage. From production of the energy to consumption by our bi-coastal customer base, the Neo Grid system will be able to support the currently elusive Level-3 charger (under 30 minutes) market. The Company believes the Neo Grids will be able to service other markets including but not limited to, Marine support, trucking, last mile vehicles, emergency-demand and of course the residential markets. About Ozop Energy Solutions.

Why lenders shouldn’t overlook Modern Methods of Construction projects

PBC Today | November 06, 2020

John Carter, commercial director for commercial real estate at Aldermore bank, explores the importance of Modern Methods of Construction (MMC) in an evolving industry. Modern Methods of Construction are increasingly being used in the construction industry today. In recent times they’ve moved from being something out of a science fiction novel to reality, particularly in the construction of units such as student accommodation and hotels. To some lenders, MMC is still relatively unfamiliar so they tend to take a conservative approach when deciding whether to invest in such projects. Yet the primary consideration for any lender should be the quality of the project making MMC not something to overlook as long as certain standards and criteria are met. MMC is a wide-ranging term that covers many different types and techniques of construction. Generally, it involves precision off-site manufacture engineering of either key components (a panelised system) or whole sealed units up to first fittings (wiring and plumbing) in a factory environment; with some methods mirroring that of the automotive industry.
