Tim Duncan, the founder and chief executive of Talos Energy, pursues the principles of new capital, new partners, and continuing ingenuity which have been set forth by the recent round of energy reform. Talos Energy believes that new ventures lead to more competitive pricing local jobs for the communities that need them the most. He operates in a very non-traditional manner and in a recent Forbes article he has been referred to as one for whom “crises are an opportunity”.
An example of his risk taking is the merger between Talos and Stone Energy Company in the midst of massive flooding and evacuations in Houston caused by hurricane Harvey. Even under optimal circumstances the deal was a gamble because Stone Energy was bankrupt with debt of $800 million dollars. However, Duncan saw the potential of $2.3 billion in assets and finally negotiated the deal from his mother’s dining room. This merger changed Talos Energy from a private company to public entity without having to do a public offering.
The new Talos Energy drills in the Gulf Coast even though drilling platforms in that area are much less stable and much more expensive, and spills are more frequent. But these wells produce for longer periods of time and Duncan’s ventures have proven to be successful. The industry has confidence in his company and, in May, he had already sold 80% of the company’s 2018 assets. Duncan continues to pursue new opportunities by drilling on the Mexican side of the Gulf. His company constructed the Zama-1 platform which is the first offshore exploration well drilled by a private oil company in Mexico’s history. Once again, Duncan’s efforts and exploration paid off with an oil strike in 2017.
Tim Duncan began his career in oil in 1996 with a job at Zilkha Energy. Even then he was interested in the seismic activity in the gulf area. After working for a number of other companies, he founded Talos Energy in 2012 so that he could pursue his gulf interests. His success is a testament to his boundless energy.

The human brain is considered the most amazing organs in the body. Even though they are the most adaptable and resilient structures in nature, our mind plays a significant role in our daily lives. This ranges from emotions, thoughts, perceptions, and behaviors. The brain is made up of millions and millions of neurons that use electric pulses to pass information/message from one part to another. The microscopic neurons are responsible for our thinking, functioning, feeling and crunching of complex information. At the end of it all, our in-depth understanding of how powerful the brain is is through how it works. Over the years, the scientists, neurosurgeons, and researchers have been trying to uncover more mysteries about this powerful organ.
Advancement in technology, especially EEG, neurofeedback and brain mapping have given the scientist a platform to understand better how the brain works and ways to improve its performance. Organizations such as Neurocore are among the pioneers in this particular field. The company has advanced its knowledge with state of the art equipment. Currently, they are treating mental disorders such as depression, ASD, ADHD, and anxiety. Such great advancement has a tremendous and tireless journey dating back to the twentieth century.
Alessandro Volta and Luigi Galvani are among the founders of neuroscience. The Italian scientists had begun their work the 18th century. They are the fathers of bioelectric theory. They better explained bioelectric through experiments conducted on frog legs. The legs of the frog were connected on the iron fence, and it was noted that during lightning strikes, the legs contracted slowly by slowly. Volta explained that this was due to the difference in the metal tissues and the frog skin.
Therefore, as a result of the tests, centers such as Neurocore were born. Such training and therapeutic centers have aided in improving the human brain and making it better. Neurocore was established about 14 years ago. Since its inception, the center has managed to redefine the way the human mind works. The ability of the brain has been studied on a scientific level and even led to the establishment of neuroscience.
There is a certain benefit to operating in the investment management industry in New York. New York is the financial center of the world, and everything that happens in the financial industry in New York will have some sort of ripple effect on the financial industry on the global scale. The best way to describe it is to say that New York is simply the nerve center of the financial world.
That being said, it can often be hard to find good candidates to work in the financial industry in New York. Most investment management companies are using outdated methods to try and recruit new talent. They are using methods that are not working anymore. If they are finding talented candidates, these candidates often do not have the specific skills that are necessary if you want to work in the financial industry.
What can be done about this? GoBuySide seems to have a solution. They have put extensive work into their recruitment method. They are solely focused on investment management firms. They want to focus on that alone, which is why they are so successful at finding high quality investment managers to fill empty positions in the industry.
Their research is done by using all sorts of advanced technological methods that were not available a decade or two ago. The reality is that people are willing to relocate to find jobs. Thus, your potential pool of candidates is now a lot bigger than it once was. It is easy to find these candidates by using the internet.
However, GoBuySide recognizes that many investment management firms in New York would rather hire someone who actually lives in New York. This gives the person who they are hiring a personal touch. Such a candidate will often be more open to the financial industry in New York, as they will have often worked in that industry for quite a while. They will be more up to date on the latest news and trends in the financial industry in New York. This will help them help you grow your company to new levels.
