Dr. Saad Saad holds the patents for two medical inventions. These are the Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device and an improvement on the endoscope that provides suction and irrigation at the site of the camera. These two inventions by Dr. Saad Saad improve current technology for better results for the patient and the medical staff performing the procedures that use these devices.


The standard endoscope is a tube with a camera at the end that is inserted into different parts of the body. This camera runs across a problem with fog and camera obstruction due to the liquid that is heavily present throughout all parts of the human body. Currently, there is just an anti-fog port in the endoscope that does not do anything for suction or irrigation. This process requires a separate apparatus and the scope must be removed before it can be used.

The Chainsmokers new music takes a dark, existential turn, and it’s exactly what we need right now.

Alex Paul and Drew Taggert’s duo, “The Chainsmokers” blew up on the scene in 2014 with their hit song, #Selfie, and have continued to top the charts ever since. The CHainsmokers are known for linking together EDM bangers with billboarding topping pop sounds. They walk the line between dancehall DJ’s and pop-stars, and are well established in both worlds. For this reason, songs like “Closer” and “Roses” ring through the corridors of school halls, gyms, rec centers, and clubs.

According to Taggert, their music has always been a reflection of their generation, specifically navigating the disorienting and confusing times. Typically their music is upbeat, poppy, and caters to a wide audience, which accounts for their success in the mainstream music market. As a result, The Chainsmokers have teamed up with Coldplay, Daya, and Halsey. This intermingling with established artists, as well as newcomers to the scene only heightened their popularity.

With this success comes the pressure of repeating it. The infamous sophomore slump has always been dreaded by musicians wanting to stay on top. The chainsmokers, however, could easily repeat what they’ve done in the past. But Paul and Taggert are taking a turn into darker territory.

Taggert stated their next project is somber. It’s a reflection of the frustration of our modern world. It’s no secret tensions are high these days. Whether politically, socially, or economically, there is a significant struggle. People are frustrated. Technology and the new ways we relay information and related to one another is a confusing gift, and a dreadful curse. This new wave of Chainsmoker music is supposed to reflect these emotions, and contemplate our current global situation.

“Sick boy”, the newest Chainsmokers single already embodies this turn. The track portrays the personal struggles of the duo, as well as their interpretation of our global struggle in our age of connectedness. In a somewhat unexpected way, the EDM tones and pop vocals are delving into philosophical and contemplative territory about our times.

“How many likes is my life worth?” is the question posed, which is the anxiety of our generation. These new tracks display a new depth for the Chainsmokers. With authenticity like this, Taggert and Paul are sure to strike a chord with the younger generation who was raised on instagram and snapchat.

AIA CEO Robert Ivy’s Role In The Architecture World

Ever since 2011, the American Institute of Architects’ (AIA) Chief Executive Officer (CEO) has been Robert Ivy. Even before he joined forces with the AIA, however, Robert Ivy had already made a name for himself in the architecture world through his previous work. The publishing industry actually honored a magazine called Architectural Record, of which Robert Ivy was the Editor-in-Chief. In addition to this, Mr. Ivy also had an important role at McGraw-Hill Construction, where he had the responsibilities of Vice President, as well as Editorial Director.

The American Institute of Architects, which has been operating under Robert Ivy’s leadership for most of the past decade, has more than 250 chapters across country, and its strong membership of 90,000 architects and design professionals are all committed to bettering the built environment. This organization is headquartered in Washington.

A large theme throughout his leadership at the AIA has been to use the influential power of the organization to make a difference within the field of modern architecture. Ivy is a strong advocate of raising the general public’s awareness of the relevance and tremendous value that architects and design professionals bring to society. Besides this, Mr. Ivy has also put in a lot or work in the areas of both public outreach and initiatives for education.

Follow American Institute of Architects on Twitter

An important topic within the architecture and design industry at the moment is how to prepare the current generation of architects to properly tackle the wide array of 21st century obstacles that architects did not have to consider decades ago. Climate change, public health and sustainability are the most prominent examples of these issues.

Recently, Robert Ivy received Alpha Rho Chi’s Master Architect designation, an incredibly prestigious honor that has never before been bestowed upon a 21st century architect. Only seven other people in history have ever received the Master Architect designation. Among these are I.M. Pei, Richard Buckminster Fuller and Miles van der Rohe.

Securus Technologies: Developing Better Security Systems

Securus Technologies has been one of the most successful telecommunications companies in North America. The company has been providing the communication needs of more than 3,000 correctional facilities in the United States and Canada. They are also known for developing or improving existing technologies and installing it to correctional facilities which have forged partnership deals with them. One of their most successful developments was the enhanced video calling technology which allows prisoners to contact their loved ones through the use of video calling technology, which is described as one of the fastest on the planet. They also offer voice calls through devices which are manufactured by Securus Technologies, and jail officers constantly monitor these devices through its built-in voice recording device. Securus Technologies is also developing some software for the jail officers, and they are effective in curbing crimes and violence inside the correctional facility. Securus Technologies has been spending more than $600 million each year to protect their inventions and patents, and the amount that they are paying for the protection of their products is worth it because no one has ever tried to copy their devices.


This year, Securus Technologies introduced the wireless containment systems, which will be used by the jail officers to prevent the use of contraband cell phones inside the prison. Contraband cell phones have been a constant headache for jail officers, and they stated that even if they confiscated it multiple times, new contraband phones would make its way inside the prison cells. The problem with contraband cell phones seems not to end, and Securus Technologies decided to up their game by creating a powerful device which works just like a regular cell phone jammer, but with more capabilities. For instance, calls which will be made from outside the prison would not be able to get through the contraband cell phone. Texts and emails would not get through as well. On the other hand, contraband cell phones would not be able to make calls, texts, and emails while the wireless containment system is in effect. Even if the prisoners smuggled thousands of contraband cell phones inside the correctional facility, these devices would end up being useless.



Securus Technologies thanked Robert Johnson for his idea of creating a wireless containment system inside the correctional facility. Robert Johnson was a former jail officer for a North Carolina prison, but after he was attacked by two armed men who forced their way inside his house, he decided to quit being a jail officer for security reasons. He then decided to work as a consultant for Securus Technologies and relayed his grim experience with prisoners who have used their contraband cell phones to instruct his failed murder.

Enterprising Entrepreneur Todd Lubbar’s Rise to Power

Businessman and investor Arthur Becker sat down for an interview recently with Inspirery. Arthur Becker the CEO and chairman of Zinio was interviewed about his business success through investments he has made in real estate property. Arthur was married to Vera Wang for 23 years, and learned a great deal from Vera Wang Fashion Company and was thereby inspired to become the successful entrepreneur he is today.

Arthur renovates townhomes before leasing or selling them to make back his investment. He had almost immediate success when starting out since his name was well known already. His main advice for anyone starting out is to have a great marketing strategy. He suggests using billboards, business cards, and shirts. Anything that gets your name out there. Check out Medium to see more.

Another key factor for Arthur Becker was coming into the market at the right time. It seems the old adage that timing is everything is true. The rest is hard work and focus. Arthur points out “without hard work and focus you can’t expect to go anywhere.” Inspirery also spoke to successful business entrepreneur Todd Lubar about his business suave in the real estate industry.

After graduating from Syracuse University with a BA in Speech Communication, Todd Lubbar’s first job was at Crestar Mortgage Corp, where he applied his skills for several years before moving on to Legacy Financial Group in 1999. Legacy Financial Group gave him the opportunity to broker loans with outside investors.

Todd followed this up by opening up Legendary Properties, LLC a residential development company in 2002. As an established businessman in the real estate industry, Todd produced a profit on over 200 transactions ranging from single family dwellings to twenty unit multi-family properties. While Todd Lubar has had a hand in real estate, he has also owned companies in the nightclub and demolition industry. This ambitious and successful entrepreneur is also the President of TDL Global Ventures, LLC. The old cliche the sky’s the limit seems true for businessman Todd Lubar.

Who Will Replace Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi As CEO Of Bradesco?

With the departure of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi from the position of CEO, Bradesco, one of the largest banks in Brazil, has been put into a state of uncertainty regarding its future leadership.

But many have faith in the ability of Trabuco Cappi, who will be taking over as chairman of the board, to select his successor with skill.

Early in the process, there were rumors swirling that Trabuco Cappi may have been considering going outside of the bank to recruit the next CEO. These had some merit, as Trabuco Cappi himself was responsible for the creation of one of the first and only executive management schools in Brazil, an effort that was explicitly aimed at relieving the shortage of quality executives within the country. Trabuco Cappi has also long been known as a staunch advocate of meritocratic hiring practices, trading softer performance metrics, like seniority, in for harder, more scientific measurements, like ability to attract customers or development of technological innovation.

But Trabuco Cappi put the rumors of outside recruitment to rest shortly after they first surfaced. He explicitly stated that he would not depart from corporate tradition and would be recruiting the next CEO from within the ranks of the firm.

This was good news to many within the company, as the appointment will now open up multiple management positions all the way down the chain. Whoever is appointed CEO will create a vacant position. And whoever fills that position will, in turn, create yet another position, all the way down to the lowest management level.

In fact, this production of natural churn throughout the corporate management hierarchy was one of the reasons given by Lazaro Brandao for finally stepping down from his position, creating the opening for Trabuco Cappi and, therefore, creating a vacancy in the CEO slot. Brandao said that he strongly believes in the mandatory retirement age of 65, and, even though he continued on until the age of 92, thinks that it may have been more appropriate for him to have stepped down at an earlier date.

However, Brandao’s situation was different. He was no ordinary chairman of the board. Brandao had overseen the period of the bank’s greatest growth. Between 1990 and 2009, the bank had increased in value by a factor of more than 300 times, an incredible rate of growth that may be one of the most rapid periods of growth of any business in the history of Brazil.

Due to this success, many stakeholders have come to see Brandao as a sort of spiritual leader of the bank, making them extremely nervous when contemplating what the future will look like without him. However, Brandao has said that he and Trabuco Cappi see eye-to-eye on so many different things that it is almost uncanny.

Both executives see technology as one of the key factors in taking the bank forward. In fact, both men have identified the 13 million customers of Bradesco that still do not have regular or reliable access to the internet as being a key problem that the bank will need to combat. Both Brandao and Trabuco Cappi have gone so far as to suggest programs that will involve furnishing customers with the technology necessary to connect to the internet, thus allowing them to access online banking facilities, rather than the manpower-intensive in-person banking facilities that they currently use.

Brandao has stated that, under Trabuco Cappi, Bradesco will continue down the same lucrative path it has been on for the last 30 years. As evidence of this, he cites the fact that much of the reason that Bradesco has arrived at where it is today is the direct result of Trabuco Cappi’s actions.
