Experienced surgeon’s blog will address diverse issues in plastic & reconstructive surgery, such as how to promote better healing after surgery.

Tansar Mir, MD – Plastic & Reconstructive Surgery (N/A:N/A)

One should not act based solely on medical information found on the internet, but instead review with a qualified medical doctor, preferably with the benefit of the patient’s medical history.”

— Dr. Tansar N. Mir, Plastic Surgeon in New York

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Doctor Tansar N. Mir, an experienced plastic & reconstructive surgeon based in New York, started a Blog to provide easy-to-understand information about the plastic surgery issues so that the public and patients can easily understand the underlying medical issues and procedures. The Blog is available at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Americans spend billions of dollars every year on plastic surgery. Many people try to enhance their appearance or correct what they perceive to be malformed. Common procedures include breast augmentation, rhinoplasty, and liposuction. There are, however, certain risks associated with such procedures. Thus, researching the specific surgery that you have in mind for yourself is a good idea. Also, make sure to be in good hands, meaning a qualified surgeon with experience in this particular procedure. Some commonly occurring issues in plastic surgery include:

Dissatisfaction with the result – plastic surgery is not an exact science and the results may differ depending on many different factors such as age, gender, body type, body weight, and skin condition.

Nerve Damage – a common issue in all plastic surgeries. The negative effects include numbness and tingling.

Infection – also a common issue in all plastic surgeries. While utmost care is taken to avoid infection, it occurs in a few percent of plastic surgeries and may require additional medication, for example with antibiotics.

Scars – plastic surgeons are trained to keep the scars to a minimum, but they are usually unavoidable. In some cases, patients suffer hypertrophic scarring, meaning that the scar is unusually red and raised.

Hematoma – which is essentially a pocket of blood resembling a painful bruise. A hematoma occurs in a few percent of breast augmentation surgeries, and also after a facelift. Hematoma a general risk in plastic surgery, and it may sometimes require additional surgery.

Organ Damage – some surgeries may adversely affect internal organs, such as liposuction. The surgical probe used for liposuction may accidentally cause punctures, which may require additional surgery.

Seroma – a condition when blood pools directly under the skin, with swelling and pain. These can become infected and may have to be drained.

Blood Loss – occurs in most plastic surgeries, but is usually limited. If there is an uncontrolled blood loss, it can result in a sudden drop in blood pressure and even result in death. Note, however, that such blood loss can also occur internally.

Anesthesia – thanks to anesthesia, the bodily pain of plastic surgery is greatly reduced, yet it has the potential for complications. For example, general anesthesia renders patients unconscious, but can lead to issues such as stroke and heart attacks.

Deep vein thrombosis (DVT) – is a rare complication. Essentially, it means that a blood clots forms in a deep vein (often the leg), breaks off, and travels to other parts of the body (such as the lungs, causing pulmonary embolism).

Dr. Mir explains that “even though it is particularly important for this type of medical treatment, in today’s plastic surgery practices, nurses, staff and medical doctors are rushed and rarely have the time to answer all questions that the patients have. That’s when patients start researching on the internet. They find opinions, reports from other patients, but rarely explanations from medical doctors. One should not act based solely on information found on the internet, but instead review the issues with a qualified medical doctor, preferably with the benefit of the patient’s medical history. Also, when patients research online and do find relevant medical articles, they find highly complex answers that are very difficult to understand for a layperson, or even contradictory. I hope to fill that information gap with explanatory articles that anybody can understand.”

Dr. Mir’s blog is available at https://tansarmirmd.home.blog/

Investors Bank Appoints Michael MacIntyre to Serve as Head of Business Banking

Michael MacIntyre is Investors Bank’s Director of Business and Government Banking.

Mr. MacIntyre is building out the business banking franchise and rapidly evolving those operations by adding digital, financial services technologies.

Investors Bank (NASDAQ:ISBC)

Michael is a transformative force who will develop and implement business unusual strategies that can propel our business banking unit to a new level of performance and growth.”

— Investors Bank CEO Kevin Cummings

SHORT HILLS , NEW JERSEY , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA , April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Investors Bank has appointed Michael MacIntyre as the Director of its Business and Government Banking units. Mr. MacIntyre, who brings a diverse range of domestic and international banking expertise, will report to Investors Bank’s Chief Retail Banking Officer William Brown. One of Mr. MacIntyre’s key responsibilities will be building out the company’s business banking franchise and rapidly evolving those operations with the introduction of innovative, digital financial services technologies.

Mr. MacIntyre’s priorities include recruiting a team of business bankers who will serve companies located across the bank’s footprint. Also, he is developing a leadership team to assist with managing the bank’s much larger and more extensive business banking unit. He is dividing his time between offices in Iselin, New Jersey, and Brooklyn, New York, which will allow closer contact with the business banking teams in each state.

In announcing Mr. MacIntyre’s appointment, Investors Bank Chairman and CEO Kevin Cummings said, “We welcome Michael as the head of our business banking team. He is a transformative force who will develop and implement business unusual strategies that can propel our business banking unit to a new level of performance and growth. His major objective is to integrate our strong brand and excellent relationship building capabilities with advanced financial technology solutions to form a significant business banking organization.”

Mr. MacIntyre is also taking on oversight of the Investors Bank Advisory Board. The board includes owners of companies, corporate executives, attorneys, accountants, and professionals who are business influencers. These business leaders, who have a presence in their communities and industry sectors, serve as advocates for Investors Bank by helping to create alliances with potential commercial banking clients.

In discussing his appointment, Mr. MacIntyre said, “I think of myself as a smart community banker, and I’m very excited to be joining Investors Bank. Kevin encourages each person who joins the bank to come in with a blank slate. I fully believe that all of the things that I consider and propose for the bank will reflect that blank-slate approach, and there will be ample opportunity here for me to make changes that better the organization.”

Mr. MacIntyre started his career at Chase Manhattan Bank (now Chase Bank) in 1994 as a member of its Management Training Program. In 1998, he joined the EAB unit of ABN Amro Holding NV and held various positions within the company’s corporate banking business.

Prior to joining Investors, Mr. MacIntyre was the United States Head of Business Banking at HSBC. During an 18-year career, he held a wide range of management positions in HSBC’s retail and commercial banks in the United States and abroad. He launched an entirely new banking platform, hiring over 100 bankers across the U.S.

He also completed innovative and strategic programs while leading the business banking unit, including a project that involved implementing a series of financial technology solutions. These steps proved to be successful despite being considered unusual for the banking industry, according to Mr. MacIntyre.

Mr. MacIntyre holds a B.A. degree from Saint Francis College in Brooklyn. He is also a graduate of Consumer Bankers Association’s (CBA) Graduate School of Retail Bank Management at the University of Virginia in Charlottesville. He earned an Executive MBA by completing an international academic fellowship at the Kenan-Flagler Business School at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

He is also involved with the banking industry and formerly served on the CBA’s Small Business Banking Committee.

In addition, he participates with community-based organizations. For example, Investors Bank’s late Director Brendan Dugan, who was the President of St. Francis College and spent much of his career in banking, invited Mr. MacIntyre to serve on the school’s Board of Trustees. He continues today in that role. He also assists the college as an adjunct professor in its Management and Information Technology departments. His lectures focus on the intersection of financial services and business operations.

MENTIS celebrates 15 years of ground-breaking data security

How pioneering a fledgling market grew into a culture of innovation.

Innovation is never unilateral, but it involves listening to your customers & help solve their problems today, without blocking them into an inflexible approach when the future brings new challenges.”

— Rajesh Parthasarathy, Founder and CEO of MENTIS Inc

NEW YORK, NY, April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — MENTIS Inc, the pioneer in data and application security software; celebrates its 15th anniversary this year with a look back at a history of innovation.

In 2004, when MENTIS was launched, data breaches were not a fact of life. It wasn’t until 2005 that the first breach of more than a million records occurred at the retailer DSW. That same year, a credit card processing company had 40 million credit card accounts hacked. And the first data breach affecting a university also occurred in 2005.

MENTIS in 2004 foresaw the risk of data loss because of the ways that data was collected, stored, and accessed or shared. MENTIS approached the problem with two key understandings: first, that enterprise data systems were more like a sieve than a secure repository; and second, that enterprise systems were much more complex, and stored data in many more unexpected and undocumented places, than administrators were aware.

MENTIS’ first innovation was to reject the patchwork, point solution approach and instead take on the challenge of creating a unified, comprehensive platform that could enable enterprises to protect data as it is collected and deployed across the enterprise. The architecture allowed for the sharing of intelligence so that modules could work together without repetition and without creating security gaps.

In its foundational modules, MENTIS advocated for masking nonproduction databases, and brought iScramble to market- the first static data masking product. Today, static data masking is considered an essential tool.

MENTIS was also one of the first company to address the complexity of data migration throughout enterprise systems by building the most comprehensive automated sensitive data discovery. MENTIS built on its early discovery and static data masking architecture by adding dynamic data masking, sensitive data-centric monitoring and retirement, and solutions to enable to its clients to comply with privacy and security laws around the world.

Rajesh Parthasarathy, MENTIS’ founder and CEO, noted, “Years before ‘Right to Deletion’ was included as a European regulatory requirement, MENTIS had developed iRetireTM – a product we designed to tackle the risk we found with companies retaining too much old data. iRetire not only helps in compliance by providing a way to retire defunct — but still highly sensitive — data, thus reducing risk, but also fits the EU directives on personal rights as well. This is just one example of ways in which MENTIS has always been ahead of the market needs. We have built a culture as an innovator with a visionary approach.”

Parthasarathy continued, “The MENTIS platform is a business application and not an IT solution. It is intended to work with various complex applications while giving the flexibility to choose from multiple approaches; for instance, customers can choose the right masking approach to fit the complexity of their needs.”

Parthasarathy concluded, “Our philosophy is that innovation is never unilateral, but it involves listening to your customers and helping solve their problems today, while not blocking them into an inflexible approach when the future brings new challenges.”

Paula Capps, Chief Operations Officer of MENTIS, said, “Among the security companies started in the 2000s, MENTIS is the only company with a singular focus on data security that has thrived. Data security has evolved over the years, but MENTIS has always been the first to introduce ground-breaking products to meet our customer’s data security needs. MENTIS is all about data security that works in the real world.”

Suresh Sundaram, Executive Director at MENTIS, added, “There are few journeys as remarkable as that of MENTIS, a journey made possible by application of innovation, commitment to vision, and emphasis on value and successful relationships with stakeholders. Now more than ever, MENTIS is hugely relevant to global businesses and will continue to provide leading-edge data security solutions for compliance enforcement, cross-border data access, test data management, security for sensitive data in cloud applications and data warehouses – solutions that deliver business value.”

With 56 product releases in the last 15 years, MENTIS has built an integrated platform that not only addresses today’s risks but responds to new uses and trends. The MENTIS platform learns and adapts to meet new challenges to the security of sensitive data.

The platform supports structured databases such as Oracle, DB2, SQL Server, Sybase, and MySQL, and unstructured data in files, mainframe databases (IMS and DB2) and Big data environments. On the applications front, MENTIS has successfully been deployed in complex applications such as Actimize, Oracle EBS, Peoplesoft; and Cloud environments such as Amazon and Azure.

MENTIS has proven itself with a global customer roster of organizations that lead in their market: from a top Swiss bank, a Fortune 15 conglomerate, and Ivy League universities to a global staffing services provider, a global credit rating company, and a Fortune 500 medical technology company, to name a few.

Analyst groups including Gartner and Bloor have recognized the MENTIS platform consistently as an innovator and challenger in data security.

Founded in 2004, MENTIS was one of the first companies in a new data security market. Guided by a visionary founder with a deep grounding in both business and technology, MENTIS immediately began to innovate and has never since stopped. Known for its responsiveness to the moving target that is risk and compliance, MENTIS continues to bring powerful products to the market, the result of the company’s deep analysis of new trends in risk, and collaboration with its customers to assess and weigh their current challenges.

The MENTIS platform comprises a comprehensive solution that protects sensitive data along its lifecycle in the customer’s systems. Products provide capabilities from discovery, masking, and monitoring to data retirement. Engineered with a unique, scalable architecture and built-in separation of duties, MENTIS is the solution of choice to deliver comprehensive, consistent, and reliable data and application security across data sources (relational databases, hierarchical databases, unstructured data, file servers, big data, on-premise, and cloud environments such as SaaS and IaaS).

MENTIS helps protects the data of some of the most iconic industries and institutions in the world. Its customer roster includes internet commerce pioneers and national airlines; higher education institutions ranging from the Ivy League to Land Grant schools; international industrial behemoths and retail giants; and global enterprises in the highly regulated financial services and healthcare industries.

Hip Set

Scottish Indie Press scoops debut Fertik fiction rights

EDINBURGH, EDINBURGH, UNITED KINGDOM, April 29, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — STIRLING PUBLISHING sign debut politcal thriller, HIP SET, from Michael Fertik, the award-winning CEO of Reputation.com and New York times best-selling author of The Reputation Economy.

Oscar Orleans is a Congolese refugee in Israel. He’s also the only Hebrew-speaking liaison to the African refugee community living in Tel Aviv’s worst slum. When his old friend Inspector Kobi Sambinsky of the Asylum Unit calls him early on Shabbat morning, he knows something is wrong.

New Book:‘The Medusa Enigma’ reveals the corruption of USA’s legal and medical systems'

Justice shall prevail

corruption of the legal and medical system

I felt like St Sebastian during this decade of my life

justice shall prevail

Dino Panvini,MD,describes how he escaped attempted murder,near death experience and corruption of the legal and medical system in USA.

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — New York, NY – New Book: In “The Medusa Enigma”, nonfiction, (published by Xlibris), author Dino Panvini, M.D., reveals the corruption within the medical and legal systems in America, and how lawyers are injuring innocent people for malicious intent yet not policed by the American Bar Association.

Dino Panvini, M.D. says: ‘Everything you are about to read is true. Although you may think this is a work of fiction, it is not! This book will take you deep inside the corruption of the United States’ legal and medical systems, and how it led to my near-death experience and multiple attempts on my life.’

Through the book, readers will learn about the actions taken against Panvini’s professional career, personal life, and safety with multiple murder attempts and fraudulent allegations by the legal medical system — all because he did the right thing. The book chronicles the battles Panvini faced against a conspiracy of malignant lawyers with immoral ethics and criminal behavior while colluding with a very corrupt medical system. According to Panvini, the origins of these actions are from a “psychologically deranged drug addicted” ex-wife.

The book describes real events that have taken place as the reader will be enchanted with the drama, corruption and real-life attempted murders. “[I want the readers] to understand the reality of the corruption of the legal and medical system in the United States, and how important it is to change the present corruption and to allow for a policing agency to monitor the legal system,” says Panvini.

Ultimately, Panvini invites readers to witness a non-fiction fast-paced thriller of a doctor escaping attempted murder, corruption by the legal and medical system and a bizarre divorce like no one have ever heard. The name of the book has cryptic message. Let’s see if readers can decipher the message, as of today only one reader has deciphered the message. Enjoy your read because my readers tell me that is a page turner. “Once I started I couldn’t put it down”. Another reader says: “Best book I've read in a long time. It was a very easy and exciting read. It was an eye opener about how evil people can be, and so greedy. I kept wondering how do these people look themselves in the mirror, and not be mortified at what they have become. Dino Panvini MD is amazing how he never gave up the fight for what he knew was right and what he believed in. Even at his darkest moments his faith got him through. He is a great inspiration for people when they are going through tough and unfair times….God does have a plan for us and will give us the strength to keep going…Thank you Dino, for sharing your story.”

The US Review of Books says:

Keep your mind open as you read my book as you will find out the truth within the legal and medical systems in the United States of America. My book will open your eyes and hopefully inspire the reader to “never give up in something that you believe to be true and correct, because only the truth can set us free”.

The Chicago Fashion Incubator, a two year-long residency on the business of fashion, welcomes the most diverse class in its 10-year history.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, April 26, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Chicago Fashion Incubator at Macy’s on State Street (CFI), a two-year residency focused on the business of fashion, welcomes three new designers-in-residence for the 2019 year. These designers join three continuing designers-in-residence to receive mentoring and training to take their independent fashion businesses to the next level.

The CFI workroom welcomes Barbara Keisman, Kpoene Kofi-Nicklin and Goli Parvinian, as they join Rakan Shams Aldeen and Cara Farella, who began the CFI program in 2018, as well as Adilah Muhammad, who returns for a third year after beginning with CFI in 2017. Brief descriptions of these talented designers are listed below.

The CFI provides emerging Chicago-based designers with resources, including work space, mentoring and workshops, to help grow their careers in fashion. Workshops range in topics from media training, creating business plans, cost analysis, and building a brand strategy to more artistic sessions like preparing patterns for production to color and proportion theory. Throughout the two-year program, the designers have the chance to establish relationships with a network of industry professionals including lawyers, accountants, fashion buyers, merchandisers and branding, marketing and communications experts.

“In the 10 years since CFI was founded, this is the most diverse class we’ve had – diversity of race, religion, country of origin as well as of design background and business expertise. This diversity will truly help to enrich the experience for all of the designers as they are able to learn, grow and collaborate, unified by their shared passion for the art and business of fashion,” said Andrea Schwartz, CFI Board President. “CFI’s past designers have been successful in building their careers, and we expect the same from this talented class.”
