Eating food is way of life and we all do it by natural instinct. Whether it’s homemade, or it comes served from a restaurant, we all have to eat in order to survive. Did you know that many of today’s top restaurants receive their food products from the same foodservice provider? Have you ever heard of OSI Group? This company is ranked as one of the world’s best food providers, and it specializes in custom-food solutions. What are custom-food solutions? These products are created through ideas, and they’re very unique, especially when being compared to standard foods. Restaurants, grocery stores and other retailors actually sell custom-food products on a daily basis.

OSI Group just so happens to be a global leader in the subject at hand. This company can literally take your idea of a food product and then turn it into an actual product. OSI Group has been successfully doing this for a very long. In its earlier days, the company was only into selling fresh beef. As word began to spread, the company expanded its product line and went toward the wholesale food market. McDonald’s was one of OSI’s first high-profile clients back in the day. Thanks to having such of a good business relationship, OSO Group was chosen as one of the hamburger-giant’s main suppliers for beef. This contract came after cryogenics, but the meats were too good to pass-up. Some of the other high-profile clients are KFC, Burger King, Yum, Subway, Starbucks and Pizza Hut. Of course, the list goes on and on, but you can get a better understanding of how valuable this company is.

Most other food providers may do a great job with distribution or development, but will lack in other areas. OSI Group does great in all departments. This includes development, distribution, processing and management. Every single step of the logistics process is being handled, and it’s being handled to the highest degree. This company outperforms its competitors in all phases of production thanks to its myriad of facilities that are placed all over the globe. Service is very prompt and customer service can handle any issue. OSI Group has the game on lock, and it will continue to do so in the coming years.

Well accomplished plastic surgeon and modern day pioneer, Dr. Mark Mofid, is revolutionizing the cosmetic surgery practice and eliminating the negative perceptions associated with buttock augmentation. Facing this uphill battle, Dr. Mofid knows that new techniques and technologies are required, as well as a more advanced and evolved way of thinking to change the hearts and minds of millions who still question if implants are safe enough. Miraculously, he’s been meeting these challenges head on, answering the tough questions through his practice with successful procedures and with his profound aesthetic methodologies.

Graduating from Harvard and John Hopkins University School of Medicine with a medical degree and training in general and plastic surgery, Dr. Mark Mofid would start off his career studying under the best, the most well-renowned Raul Gonzalez, MD, a plastic surgeon in Ribeirao Preto, Brazil, who has performed the most successful surgeries in the world. Under Dr. Gonzalez, Mofid would hone his techniques in buttock augmentation. Throughout the years, he’s seen so many changes from when he first started.

One of the initial problems Dr. Mofid encountered with buttock implants, was that the off-the-shelf solid silicone implants weren’t suffice enough for buttock implant procedures. In the beginning, roughly around 2007, the implants were just too bulky for intramuscular placement. For years, Dr. Mofid had to carve the implants down before surgery, something that was quite tedious and time-consuming.

This sparked a notion in Dr. Mofid’s mind, in terms of making changes in his surgical techniques and as well as his overall approach. He realized that he would have to use intramuscular implants, stating that, “Large implants have higher rates of palpability, incisional separation, and malposition. Gravity will eventually move these implants to an inferior position where the implant hangs over the butt fold.”

Upon further pondering, Dr. Mofid also realized that surgeons weren’t paying close attention when it came to the aesthetics of buttock augmentation. Using research studies that compared the waist-to-hip ratio and weight of female models, it was found that there is a certain waist-to-hip ratio of 0.68; regardless of the body mass indexes of every model. Comparing this to the “Fibonacci sequence or golden ratio”, Dr.Mofid was inspired by this ratio and would use it to frame his concepts of the ideal aesthetics when performing buttock augmentation.

Today, Dr. Mark Mofid’s thoughtful and analytical approach can be seen in his own practice at FACS, in San Diego, California, where he performs plastic surgery in the forms of rhinoplasty, breast and buttock augmentation and liposuction. Recently, he developed a new procedure and training video that prevents the nipple areolas from deterioration, yet instead, replaces the standard tissue with an added healing strengthener that allows surgical scars to naturally disappear. Dr. Mark Mofid continues to prove that his surgical skills are innovative and his vision and approach to the field of science is transcendental.

There was a recent study which showed that school children who eat their meals at home with their family perform much better in their studies than school children who eat alone in their room. The makers of that study credited the positive increase in performance of children who eat with their family to one simple fact, and that is, parent to children, as well as siblings to self, interaction are very important factors in the growth of a child.

Rocketship Education, a California based public charter school, recognizes that textbooks and lectures alone don’t complete a student’s education.
