All over the world, there are some truly notable causes that donate their money, effort and time to charitable endeavors. One of the most honorable among all charity work is work that aids the impoverished children of the world. One of the best organizations putting forth this kind of effort is the International Pediatric Specialists Alliance for the Children of Vietnam or IPSAC-VN for short.
The IPSAC-VN works tirelessly to bring today’s most modern and advanced medical and surgical practices, working with medical facilities as well as schools within Vietnam to bring these services to ill children in the region. The work being done in Vietnam by IPSAC-VN is an effort to promote and create a self-sustaining the medical and educational environment, assisting in setting up the infrastructure to educate the medical professionals in the area.
Much of the work being done apart from the treatment of children in the area is to ensure an environment is created that fosters local advancement (Health.USNews). One of the largest contributors in time, energy, and financial contributions, is Dr. Mark Holterman.
Since 2011 Dr. Holterman has been a full-time professor at the University of Illinois College of Medicine while also being C.E.O. and founder of Miriam Global Health (https://www.dialdish.com/dr-mark-holterman/). Much of his time is spent advancing the medical health industry, specializing in research into an area of medicine that is truly taking off; regenerative medicine.
Dr. Holterman is the author of many peer-reviewed medical texts and presentations on topics like bariatric surgery which involves a range of procedures that are designed to help treat and manage obesity. His work in regenerative medicines and stem cell research have included a successful clinical trial in which a complete synthetic trachea was created using a patient’s bone marrow cells.
Much of his regenerative work has been focusing on the restoring of internal organs and other internal systems through cellular therapy. Cellular therapies can aid a patient in an extensive range of ways, every part of the body can see benefit from cellular therapies. Restoration of functionality, just one part of the amazing contributions made to the medical world by Dr. Mark Holterman.
Louis Chenevert’s time at United Technologies Corporation (UTC) as the chief executive officer was one that was marked by phenomenal success. He established high standards that exceeded what other CEOs could do. One of his largest successes was the acquisition of Goodrich, which, amounting to an 18.4 billion deal, was one that built a huge synergy within the company and what they could supply in-house to their clients.
When Airbus chose Pratt & Whitney, one of UTC’s subsidiaries, for their new engine supplier it was largely due to the efforts of Louis Chenevert. He had pushed for development of new materials which would allow the engine to burn hotter and thus more efficiently. One of the other concepts of this engine that has had longlasting impact is that it decoupled the fan. This change has paid off since as Pratt & Whitney builds even more advanced and larger engines using this technology.
It was at Pratt & Whitney Canada that Louis Chenevert had first joined UTC in 1993. In 1999 he was named as the companies president and in 2006 he was elected as chairman of the board of UTC. He was eventually named CEO and served in this position until he decided to leave UTC on December 8, 2014. After taking some time off he joined Goldman Sachs where he was an advisor in their Merchant Banking Division.
Louis Chenevert is from Canada. He attended HEC Montreal and earned a bachelor’s degree in production management. After earning his degree he found a job at General Motors where he stayed, rising to higher levels of responsibility, for 14 years. Once he started his career at Pratt & Whitney he quickly familiarized himself with their production management policies and how to grow both sides of their business which includes both civil and military aviation.
Over the course of his professional career, Louis Chenevert has been honored several times. He was presented with an honorary doctorate by HEC Montreal, his alma mater, in 2011. It was also in this same year that he was named by Aviation Week & Space Technology as their Person of the Year.

Mr.Chris Burch has stated that he believes the technology and fashion industries are closely intertwined and have seen many changes and innovations in the past few years. Using technology, fashion designers have created airbags for cyclists, that are not only more fashionable than helmets but may protect cyclists head as well, if not better, than helmets. Plus, when not deployed, it can offer better visibility of a cyclists surroundings, something that a helmet can hinder. Fashion using technology to help save lives.
Designers are also using recycled materials and technology to help save the environment. Using recycled bicycle inner tubes to make jackets and t-shirts or using recycled radiator copper to create a gown are just a few examples. Technology is being used in fashion to try to capture the kinetic energy that people naturally generate as they move. New fashions are created to capture this energy to power phones, mp3 players, watches, the possibilities are endless. There are many ways that technology and fashion can work together to benefit each other and make like easier, safer, and more economically friendly.
Technology also uses assistance from fashion to gain popularity. Google Glass is an example of this. There can be a bias about wearing glasses. Fashion designer, Diane Von Furstenberg had her models wear them on the catwalk. These types of fashion shows can show people what the latest trend and styles are, but also help to show what new technology is around and can be integrated fashionably into your style. Fashion and technology can go hand in hand and work together to help each other out and to make each other better
