The name Cassio Audi is well known to fans of heavy metal music from around the world, and particularly those who were part of the 1980s and 90s growth of heavy metal in Brazil. Cassio Audi first came to the attention of music fans around the world as the drummer for the Brazilian band, Viper, who were one of the leaders in the expansion of the heavy metal scene in Latin America when they were formed with all the members still in their teenage years; Audi played a key part in the development of Viper during their early years as the drummer of a band that took the majority of their influences from 1970s and 80s British heavy metal bands, such as Iron Maiden.
The growth of Viper took the band from humble origins to global success that has continued over a number of decades, but for Cassio Audi the Viper years came to an end in 1989 after he felt his time with the band had come to a natural end. Audi appeared on some of the most important recordings from Viper dating back to 1985 when the group recorded their first demo, known as “The Killera Sword”. The drummer also appeared on the 1987 debut album of Viper, “Soldiers of Sunrise”.
After leaving Viper, Cassio Audi took his life in a completely new direction that saw him develop his career as a financial expert who has a great interest in developing the investment opportunities available to everyday Brazilians who do not often feel they are given the chance to engage with the major investment opportunities given to people at the highest end of economic success. After receiving his MBA from Sao Paulo University, Cassio Audi has gone on to work for many of the leading financial companies in Brazil.
Cancer Treatment Centers of America (CTCA) announced that it would be implementing a technical solution to its patients three months ago. The solution is a combined venture between Allscripts, NantHealth, and CTCA. The product connects the electronic health record from Allscripts with eviti. This is a decision support service from NantHealth. The operating system is known as NantOS. It was developed in collaboration with oncologists around the country. The integration of the two programs will allow physicians to work uninterruptedly and this will improve the treatment process.
The Clinical Pathways program will offer a comparison between treatments and recommend tailored regimens according to the state of the patient. All of the prescribed treatments will then be mapped to the health record system so that physicians can refer to it later. The program will allow physicians to come up with appropriate treatments since they will have access to comprehensive data. The Cancer Treatment Centers of America is a network of hospitals that serve cancer patients. It was started in 1988. Its headquarters is in Boca Raton, Florida. The Cancer Center has served patients for more than three decades. It has helped to treat the disease using advanced technology.

Doug Levitt can best be described as a modern day Woodie Guthrie. We cannot reference Bob Dylan, John Mellencamp or Bruce Springsteen yet as they still record and tour, but Doug Levitt is a modern day activist who keeps his eye on every day America and the Americans who populate this great country. He seems to be cut from the same cloth as the greats just mentioned. He makes his message known through excellent music and photography that ranges from average to extraordinary. His music can be heard through live performances from homeless shelters to places like The Kennedy Center. He is the type of person who is well-known yet rarely publicized. This is a man who has a keen eye for the art in everyday life and a talented ear for being able to create music and lyrics that also reflect that.
His website “The Greyhound Diaries” is the web version of just that. A diary of his travels on the Greyhound line encompassing 12 years and 120,000 miles. If this man has not seen it all, he has seen quite enough to put together a very impressive collage of photographs. These photographs show the everyday Americans who are either down on their luck or almost there, and they are referenced in towns that you could say the same about. If you want to see an America that you only hear about on the news or news programs, visit his site. If you want to hear his songs live, follow his travels and itinerary. You will not be disappointed.
