Artificial Intelligence Keynote Speaker Edgar Perez Hails UK Steps to Best US and China on Tech Race

Throughout history, there have been moments when the progress of technology has taken great steps forward, when a combination of the right tools, a capacity for innovation, and sparks of ingenuity lead to breakthroughs that transform how we live our lives. Executives in Kuala Lumpur, London, Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Mexico City and Hong Kong will acquire a comprehensive understanding of these technology trends and how they will impact business and society with Artificial Intelligence author and keynote speaker Edgar Perez.

New York City, NY, USA — How we produce and process information is critical to innovation, and our methods of recording and communicating information have themselves undergone great leaps. At the same time, tools for processing and making sense of large quantities of data have developed exponentially, with Artificial Intelligence (AI) representing the latest leap. In the same way that Gutenberg’s press ushered in a new era of growth, data-driven technologies such as AI will underpin our future prosperity.

The huge global opportunity AI presents is why the UK government identified AI and data as one of their Grand Challenges, in which the country could lead the world for years to come. The recently-announced Sector Deal is the first commitment from government and industry to realize this technology’s potential, outlining a package of up to £1 billion of support for the sector.

The Sector Deal sets out actions to promote the adoption and use of AI in the UK, and delivers on the recommendations of the independent AI review, ‘Growing the AI industry in the UK’, led by Professor Dame Wendy Hall and Jérôme Pesenti1 (currently at Facebook). Their review engaged widely with businesses, academia, investors and other stakeholders on ways to boost the UK’s emerging AI sector at home and across the world. It sets out proposals to improve the institutions that support AI in the United Kingdom, to build a skilled workforce, and to stimulate access to data, collectively the lifeblood of any AI business.

If there are critical areas in technology today that will greatly impact businesses for years to come, these are Cybersecurity, Artificial Intelligence and Quantum Computing. If there are examples of countries rising to the AI challenge, the UK effort tops the list of geographies announcing a nationwide proposal to lead the industry globally, says renowned AI instructor Edgar Perez (http://www.mredgarperez.com), presenter of programs in these subjects in Mumbai, Abu Dhabi, Singapore, Kuala Lumpur, London, Mexico City and Hong Kong:

1. Deep Learning / Artificial Intelligence Workshop:

Go Quantum Today in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, London, Singapore, HK and Mexico City

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will help CEOs from chemical manufacturers and pharmaceutical companies to oil and gas conglomerates, from aerospace and defense to financial services firms to put Quantum Computing in the works in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, London, Singapore, Hong Kong and Mexico City.

New York City, NY, USA — Today’s computing machinery, which has brought incredible technological innovations over the past decades, still relies on calculations with 1s and 0s, even if the devices are orders of magnitude smaller than the stadium-sized systems of the previous century. Quantum Computing (QC), computing technology’s next generation, holds the promise of new machines operating at one million times the speed of current computers, allowing scientists, for example, to model complex molecular interactions at an atomic level.

QC replaces today’s Boolean logic with quantum law at the algorithmic level. For optimization, sampling or search problems, this promises dramatic speedups. QC will enable solving a set of problems that couldn’t be solved before or could take forever on a classical super computer.

QC’s benefits include efficiently simulating much larger molecules, effectively minimizing the overhead to run complex logistical operations and dramatically reducing the time for advanced portfolio construction optimization, among many others applications.

Furthermore, in the same way that combustion engines and microprocessors once redefined entire industries, QC heralds today the advent of as yet unimagined realms, while also opening new radical avenues for existing industries, such as finance, pharma, oil and gas, and even the acceleration of artificial intelligence.

The Quantum Computing Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders (http://www.gldnacademy.com/quantum-computing-microprocessor-qubit-cryptography-superposition-entanglement-programming-artificial-intelligence-api.html) will show CEOs how to learn to harness the opportunities unveiled by Quantum Computing, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organizations for what the future holds. Powerful quantum computers will model all 19,000+ proteins in the human genome and simulate how new drugs can cure everything from the common cold to cancer.

New York City, NY, USA — Top executives of organizations around the world have heard a lot about artificial intelligence (AI). Within AI, there is machine learning, a technology that enables computers to get better at tasks with more practice. Furthermore, within machine learning, there is deep learning, which involves algorithms by which computers train themselves using multi-layered neural networks (inspired by the human brain) and vast quantities of data.

Deep learning allows computational models that are composed of multiple processing layers to learn representations of data with multiple levels of abstraction. These methods have dramatically improved speech recognition, visual object recognition, object detection and many other domains such as financial trading, transportation, drug discovery and genomics. Deep learning effective and efficiently discovers intricate structure in large data sets by using algorithms to indicate how a machine should change its internal weights and biases that are used to compute the representation in each layer from the representation in the contiguous layer, which have brought about breakthroughs in processing images, video, speech, audio and financial data.

Cybersecurity Insights from Top Expert for CEOs in Malaysia, South Korea, UAE, Sweden, HK and Mexico

The Cybersecurity Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will help CEOs gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects and discover how to establish or improve their cybersecurity programs in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Mexico City.

New York City, NY, USA — Despite the ongoing cyber threat that is witnessed through news reports almost on a daily basis, firms are still neglecting proper cybersecurity planning. As information technology becomes ever more complex and Internet of Things applications progressively widespread, cybersecurity is becoming an increasingly important and business-critical field. Unfortunately, a recent study from security solutions provider Resilient Systems and market research firm Ponemon broke down key areas of continued failure for organizations.

The study found that 66% of IT and security professionals surveyed said their firms were unprepared to recover from a cyber attack, and 75% lacked a formal incident response plan. A key example of this unpreparedness is that fact that many of the companies impacted by the WannaCry ransomware attack had not installed patches in their Windows infrastructure that were released by Microsoft months before. Vulnerabilities in commercial software are common; the only solution is to stay abreast of manufacturer’s releases.

In order to help businesses in their cybersecurity planning, the Cybersecurity Framework released in February 2014 following a collaborative process involving industry, academia and government has been widely adopted by many types of organizations around the world, quickly becoming the de facto standard by which cyber security is going to be measured.

The Cybersecurity Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders (http://www.gldnacademy.com/the-cybersecurity-workshop-for-todays-strategic-leaders.html) will bring leaders up to speed on the most recent and battle-tested approaches to protect their companies’ valuable information and intellectual property from prying eyes of hackers and competitors. Attendees to the program will learn how to apply the Cybersecurity Framework in their organizations and erect strong defenses for their valuable customer and employee data and intellectual property.

Attendees to these 2-day workshops organized by GLDNAcademy.com (http://www.gldnacademy.com) in Kuala Lumpur, Seoul, Abu Dhabi, Stockholm, Hong Kong and Mexico City will:

• Gain a comprehensive understanding of cybersecurity and its key aspects
• Get to grips with various cybersecurity testing methods

Jakarta Film Awards Celebrates Indonesian Cultural Park Anniversary

Jakarta, Indonesia — Jakarta Film Awards (JFA) just announced their lineups for this year. The international film festival held its Awards Ceremony at the Taman Mini Indonesia Indah, the Indonesian Cultural Park, celebrating the 43rd anniversary of the National Park. The Awards Ceremony is a blast with red carpets, and crowds flooded packed the place. Kings and queens of Indonesia, many ambassadors, artists, filmmakers, and cultural society attended the big event.

This year, Jakarta Film Awards received 251 films from all around the world. Four films from different countries compete for the Best Film. Here are the nominees:

Give Me the Sun directed by Ban ZhongYi, a documentary about seven aging Chinese women whose bodies and minds were irrevocably scarred by the unspeakable brutality they suffered during World War II, when they were often gang-raped for months until their families could ransom them. Some were lured into sexual slavery by locals working for the Japanese Army, who promised them work in factories or hospitals; others were simply abducted and enslaved in the nearest comfort stations.

The American War, directed by an American veteran of the Iraq War, Dr. Daniel Bernardi, tells the story of the Vietnam War from the perspective of six Vietcong veterans: a soldier, an officer, an informant, a guerilla, a My Lai survivor and the leader of the Long Hair (all women) army. Using rarely seen North Vietnamese archival footage, animated illustrations and interviews set in homes, villages and prisons, The American War gives voice and character to Vietcong veterans.

The Eve directed by Luca Machnich is a short film that tells a story about a young boy who dreams to meet the Santa Claus. This semi-horror film is chosen because the complexity of the mixed color made every frame of this film beautiful yet creepy.

City of Paso Robles Reaches 1,000 Solar Home Installs

Last month, Paso Robles resident Dan Robinson applied for a solar energy permit. Little did he know that his application would be the 1,000th alternative energy permit filed in the city of Paso Robles.

Atascadero, CA, USA — Last month, Paso Robles resident Dan Robinson decided he wanted to save money and do the right thing when he called Solarponics and applied for a solar energy permit to install solar on his home. Little did he know that his application would be the 1,000th alternative energy permit filed in the city of Paso Robles. With Mr. Robinson’s solar install, Paso became the first city to reach 1,000 installs in San Luis Obispo county.

“These seven panels on my roof can do the same for me as a multi-billion dollar power plant… with no pollution,” says Mr. Robinson. “Solar makes so much sense on so many levels. It’s the right way to go.”

Solar energy first became popular in the late 1970’s when President Carter installed solar water heating panels on the White House. At the time, electric rates hovered around a low of 5¢/kWh. Solar electric and solar water heating systems were still quite a bit more expensive than ulitily-purchased energy.

Since the mid, California has seen a nearly 300% increase in the price of energy, currently averaging 19¢/kWh, while solar energy prices have dropped significantly, making solar electric far more affordable than grid-tied energy today.

Nationally, solar installs in the U.S. have grown from 1.2 gigawatts (GW) in 2008 to an estimated 34GW today. Paso Robles has gone from under 20kW of solar installs in 2008 to over 6 megawatts (MW) of residential solar today. This equates to more than $50 million in collective energy savings for Paso Robles homeowners over the next 20 years.

“Even with the recently imposed solar panel tariffs, solar energy continues to be a significant money-saver. The more energy rates increase, the more solar makes sense. And rates are always increasing.” says Kristian Emrich, Solarponics vice-president.

To celebrate the 1,000th residential solar energy install in Paso Robles, Solarponics is donating solar powered systems for electric golf carts to north county schools, and converting those electric golf carts to solar-power.

“Five years ago, we could not have imagined reaching this milestone…1,000 solar roofs in Paso… 10,000 county-wide. And now, here we are. Our vision is to see renewable energy systems on every single structure in the county. So, there’s a lot of work to do still,” says Mr. Emrich.

About Solarponics
Solarponics is the Central Coast’s go-to renewable energy installer, helping businesses and homeowners save money and achieve energy independence. Solarponics has installed over 5,000 energy systems throughout the county since 1975. The longest continuously owned and operated solar company in California, Solarponics is still privately owned and locally operated.

Top AI Keynote Speaker on How to Manage Big Data Tsunami of Information with Artificial Intelligence

The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will provide key insights into current and future developments for deep learning, with particular emphasis on what organizations in Stockholm, Brussels, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi, Seoul and Hong Kong can do today to leverage this revolutionary technology and apply it to their most pressing challenges.

New York City, NY, USA — The Internet of Things (IoT) explosion will see 20.8 billion connected devices deployed by 2020. The volumes of data generated will become a tsunami that firms will need to transform into actionable information.

Unfortunately, most firms only look at the easy information they can get from structured data while ignoring their unstructured data, which accounts for 90 percent of content generated globally, making unstructured data a tremendous source of untapped value.

Artificial Intelligence is making it possible and affordable to sift through and find meaning in vast amounts of unstructured data obtained from video, audio, emails, logs, social media posts and IoT devices. All of this data can bring about enormous benefits. Mr. Edgar Perez, course director of The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders, will show organizations how to reap these benefits today.

The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will bring the latest insights in artificial intelligence and most specifically deep learning to executives, managers, directors, consultants and regulators. Attendees to these 2-day workshops organized by GLDNAcademy.com in Stockholm, Brussels, Sao Paulo, Mexico City, Kuala Lumpur, Abu Dhabi, Seoul and Hong Kong will:

• Get up to speed on how artificial intelligence, machine learning and deep learning will impact global business
• Review key enabling technologies including big data and scalable computing processing
• Understand the role of deep learning in healthcare, manufacturing, transportation, customer service and finance
• Look at the landscape of how artificial intelligence stands today, why it is gravitating towards deep learning and how that fits in to the organization’s future
• Learn to personalize the customer experience with techniques similar to Google searches and Amazon recommendations
• Start applying TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework, in the organization
• Devise a strategy to move the organization forward that focused on the company’s most pressing points to leverage deep learning
• Embed deep learning in the organization’s existing technology development life-cycle

ABOUT THE DEEP LEARNING WORKSHOP FOR TODAY’S STRATEGIC LEADERS
The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will provide key insights into current and future developments for deep learning, with particular emphasis on what organizations can do today to leverage this revolutionary technology and apply it to their most pressing challenges.

Deep learning allows computational models that are composed of multiple processing layers to learn representations of data with multiple levels of abstraction. These methods have dramatically improved speech recognition, visual object recognition, object detection and many other domains such as financial trading, transportation, drug discovery and genomics. Deep learning effective and efficiently discovers intricate structure in large data sets by using algorithms to indicate how a machine should change its internal weights and biases that are used to compute the representation in each layer from the representation in the contiguous layer, which have brought about breakthroughs in processing images, video, speech, audio and financial data.

Top executives of organizations around the world have heard a lot about artificial intelligence (AI). Within AI, there is machine learning, a technology that enables computers to get better at tasks with more practice. Furthermore, within machine learning, there is deep learning, which involves algorithms by which computers train themselves using multi-layered neural networks (inspired by the human brain) and vast quantities of data.

This program focuses on practical applications of artificial intelligence for business using TensorFlow, the most widely-used deep learning framework from Google. Deep learning is already impacting every part of business today; in fact, PwC has warned that automation could replace 38% of all American jobs by 2030. Deep learning will continue to be a rich source of insights from ever-growing data sets being evaluated by powerful algorithms, enabling companies to make better decisions.

GLDNAcademy.com’s The Deep Learning Workshop for Today’s Strategic Leaders will show attendees how to harness the opportunities deep learning offers, how to identify challenges and how to prepare their organization for what the future holds. From financial trading to autonomous vehicles and from robotics to automated cancer diagnoses, practical applications for deep learning are already here and will impact businesses for years to come.

5 Gyres Partnering with Forward Reality on Groundbreaking VR Project

“The Pacific Garbage Patch, A Seagull’s Perspective” will educate millions on the impact of plastic pollution.

Carlsbad, CA, USA — 5 Gyres is partnering with Forward Reality, as an advisor on a Virtual Reality (VR) project to educate people about the serious issue of plastic pollution in our oceans.

The “Pacific Garbage Patch – A Seagull’s Perspective” is a VR experience, that focuses on the Pacific Garbage Patch and the effects of plastics on marine and bird life. It is a compelling interactive experience that brings this critical issue to people’s attention.

Users will view the Pacific Garbage Patch, its origins and affected regions, from the perspective of a Seagull, with voice over narration that explains the content and issues. By viewing multiple locations (the gyre, Midway Island, plastic factories, fish market) players can understand the origin of this plastic garbage, the impact it has on the world around us and the steps they can take to help solve the problem.

Sherri Cuono, CEO of Forward Reality stated “We’re pleased to have the participation of the 5 Gyres Institute on this important project, their expertise on this issue is invaluable”. She added, “Forward Reality will be launching this experience in museums worldwide as well as making it available to the public on multiple VR platforms.”

“Solving the problem of plastic pollution demands innovation,” said Rachel Lincoln Sarnoff, 5 Gyres Executive Director. “We’re honored to share our experience through this exciting new platform to drive awareness and action on this critical issue.”

The “Pacific Garbage Patch – A Seagull’s Perspective” will be released later this year.

ABOUT 5 GYRES
The nonprofit 5 Gyres Institute has been fighting plastic ocean pollution since 2009. Beginning in 2010, 5 Gyres began a series of scientific firsts by researching plastic in all five subtropical gyres, as well as the Great Lakes and Antarctica. In 2014, the organization convened eight scientists around the world to publish the first global estimate of plastic pollution in our ocean: 5.25 trillion particles weighing in at 270,000 tons of “plastic smog” worldwide. 5 Gyres’ paper on plastic microbead pollution in the Great Lakes inspired a two-year collaborative campaign that culminated in a federal ban on microbeads, which President Obama signed into law in 2015. In August, 5 Gyres embarked on its 17th expedition-this time to research microplastics and nanoplastics in the Arctic Circle. More information is at http://www.5gyres.org.

GUBA 2017 nominees and recognition.

About GUBA Awards
GUBA (Ghana UK Based Achievement awards) is a non-profit Business & Innovation Awards instituted to celebrate, acknowledge, and support Ghanaian based businesses and individuals in the UK. The GUBA Awards is the first ceremony of its kind to specifically recognize Ghanaian achievement and the only awards to be endorsed by the Ghana High Commission in the UK. It is intended as a platform that “showcases and celebrates excellence and achievement within the British-Ghanaian community as well as the outstanding and valuable services provided to Ghanaians in the UK and Ghana”. More recently, the organizers have sought to also involve the wider African communities as they attempt to gain international attention.

The Ghana UK Based Achievement (GUBA) Awards is an annual awards ceremony based in Britain which recognizes the ‘hugely significant’ contribution that British-Ghanaians make to society. The awards were founded in 2009 by UK-based Ghanaian TV personality Dentaa, with the first awards ceremony taking place in London, England, in October 2010.

About R.E.S.T.O.R.E. (http://www.restoreworldwide.org)
R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is a 501(c)(3) non-profit medical service organization that provides free reconstructive surgery and related medical services to children and adults with disfiguring deformities from birth, accidents and diseases. Many developing countries shun those afflicted with disfiguring deformities and look upon them as outcasts or “freaks”. Often their own families hide them from the general public to spare them from either being ridiculed or physically harmed because of their disfigured appearance. Although there is an overwhelming need for plastic surgery in developing countries, these types of surgeries are not available because there are no personnel trained to provide the necessary surgeries. As part of the organization’s mission they seek to educate and train local physicians in the techniques necessary to perpetuate their initial work to continually benefit more people for years to come.

PB Millionaire Jim Lawlor Victim of Fake News

Lawlor Says: “Fame Comes With A Huge Price”.

pb-millionaire-jim-lawlor

San Diego, CA, USA — There was a time, not long ago, when people would read the newspaper or watch a reliable TV Network to get their news. Not anymore. New York Times Reporter, Michael Lynch, wrote an article called: “Fake News and the Internet Shell Game” in which he outlined how the internet has created a platform to deceive readers into believing “fake news” for the purpose of swaying public opinion. Lynch reported: “It was…the year of ‘fake news’ in which pure fiction masquerading as truth (like posts that claimed Hillary Clinton used a body double and Pope Francis had endorsed Trump) may have spread wide enough to influence the outcome of the election.”

But this deception game is not only used for political purposes, it is also widely used as means to sway public opinion about a public figure. Famous people today are plagued with so-called “haters” who in their twisted thinking become obsessed with someone famous and try destroy that person’s character. Often times they have never even met the person that they try to defame, yet they paint an unbecoming picture of the person whom they “hate” to get the public to believe their point of view, and in doing so they use “pure fiction” as well.

Jim Lawlor – also known as the “PB Millionaire”, has been a victim of these fake news stories. One example is a so-called news story on the internet that claims that the PB Castle – Lawlor’s home, was in foreclose in 2008 and that he was going to lose his house. Someone even said: “Foreclosure is imminent.” The truth is that Lawlor was suing his mortgage company because he was told his mortgage was a fixed rate but, in fact, it was a variable rate and his mortgage was going to double that year. Lawlor’s lawyer advised him not to pay his mortgage as a means of leverage against the mortgage company. It worked. Lawlor won the case which settled out of court and he got the rate he wanted as well as a fixed rate. He made well over a million dollars that year and had plenty of money to pay the mortgage but choose to take his lawyer’s advice and was thereby very successful in getting the kind of mortgage he wanted. The mortgage loan was in default at the time but the house was never in foreclose. However, if one were to read this fake news story, one would think he had no money and was going to lose his house. And that’s what the writer of this fake news story wanted you to think.

There are more than a dozen false news stories like that one on the internet about Lawlor with the intent to defame him. If you did a background check on the “PB Millionaire” you would find nothing. So why is there such a disparity of the truth herein an article on Oprah.com written by: Helen Fisher, PhD, called “Jealousy – the Monster,” Fischer wrote: “Why do we feel jealousy? Therapists often regard the demon as a scar of childhood trauma or a symptom of a psychological problem. And it’s true that people who feel inadequate, insecure, or overly dependent tend to be more jealous than others. And if you can’t stop spying or obsessing (and many of us can’t), it’s time to consult a mental health professional.” Unfortunately, those mentally ill people have computers and unleash their rage on unsuspecting celebrities.

The PB Millionaire is a true rags to riches, success story here in San Diego. After graduating from St. Ambrose University in Davenport, Iowa, with a bachelor’s degree in Business Administration, he found himself in the midst of a recession and painted houses as a way to get by. It is then he envisioned his invention for a new type of safety goggle for spray painters. After getting a patent, he started his goggle business in 1991 and within a few years, annual sales were over one million dollars. His company continues to grow each year. Lawlor says: “I was naive to think that one day if I became successful, people would look up to me and would want to know how I became successful so they too could be successful. I didn’t realize how many angry people are out there in the world. Fame comes with a huge price because once you are famous you become a target for all the crazies out there.”

But Lawlor doesn’t feel inclined to hate back. “I only have compassion for those who suffer. I experience bliss because of my daily meditations. Those who have hate in their hearts are experiencing suffering. We should never feel anything but compassion for those who suffer – it’s just inappropriate.” And when I asked Lawlor how it affects him when he reads these hateful remarks, he said: “I don’t even read the stuff. If within the first sentence I see that it is hateful, I just delete it off my screen. I’m a very happy person but I feel sad for those people who choose to waste their lives hating others. If they put the same amount of time and effort into a business or working for a good cause, they would probably be happy too.”

PB Reality Show

Lawlor created “The PB Reality Show” about six years ago which depicts his nouveau riche lifestyle as a millionaire living in a castle here in Pacific Beach – a beach community within San Diego. It is then when all the Perez Hilton wannabe’s began their cyber attacks on his character. But there are way more fans than haters. The PB Reality Show Facebook page has over 80,000 followers (http://www.facebook.com/thepbrealityshow) who have nothing but praise for Lawlor. Debby Prater, a Facebook fan said: “You truly are a very special man. To give so much to so many others, and not merely materialistic things. But straight from the heart. Thank you, from the bottom of mine, for making this world a better place.” Rachel Andrei Buntyn said: “I have been a fan for over 4 years and continue to look up to you because you are a one of a kind person. You are a man of God and do God’s work by giving to the less fortunate all the time. I would love to meet you one day, I have always bragged about you on my timeline. You are such a beautiful human being. May God continue to bless you, Jim.”

Before he became wealthy, Lawlor was very involved in a world peace project that helped end the Cold War between the then USSR and the USA and was on the Today Show, CNN, and the major network news stations. (See http://www.pbmillionaire.bio). Now that he has money, he finds he can do a lot more to help people in need. Most of his employees and even former employees speak highly of him using adjectives like: “thoughtful,” “caring,” “easy-going,” “funny,” “knowledgeable.” Lawlor is multi-lingual and is a scholar of history. He has read many books on American History and is often quoting one of our Founding Fathers. He now devotes much of his time giving back to the community through his charities with a special emphasis on helping the homeless here in San Diego. He likes to make what he calls “Homeless Survival Bags” filled with foodstuff, water, juices, socks, and sweaters. He then personally drives around San Diego handing them out with his staff.

“I’m not going to apologize for being successful. Thomas Jefferson once said: ‘I’m a great believer in luck, and I find the harder I work, the more I have of it.’ – I agree.”

Dr. Michael K. Obeng will Perform a Miraculous Surgery on Sarjo Trawally, a 4-year-old Girl from Gambia with a Life threatening Facial Cystic Hygroma

From the anointed mind to the gifted hands of Dr. Michael K. Obeng, miracles have come true for many that cannot afford surgeries in third-world countries with poverty beyond understanding.

Sarjo Trawally

Beverly Hills, CA, USA — After careful, strategically planned trips to four countries this summer, Dr. Obeng was touched and moved by 4-year-old Sarjo with her disfigured face. Dr. Obeng has arranged for Sarjo to come to United States where he will do what may seem by millions as impossible. Sarjo arrives in Los Angeles on Thursday, August 11, 2016, which is when her transformation will begin. Dr. Obeng was born with the gift himself, to touch and change lives, faces, bodies etc. of many, with no means whatsoever to handle the cost for these surgeries. Dr. Obeng, through his charity, R.E.S.T.O.R.E., Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts, and donations from the kindhearted, has been able to donate 100% of all services free for all surgeries that he and his select staff performs either on tour or case by case here in Beverly Hills, CA.

Dr. Obeng came to Midwestern State University (MSU) from Ghana. He saw a flyer about the university in a friend’s dorm room and knew it was in Texas, but that was all. While an MSU student, Dr. Obeng laid carpet, worked for Golden Corral, and drove a school bus for the Wichita Falls Independent School District. His bed was one he rescued from someone else’s trash, and he and his roommate alternated sleeping on it and the floor. After his first semester at MSU, he got a job at the Moffett Library and eventually landed a job as a residence assistant that paid his room and board, a big relief for a struggling student.

Dr. Obeng earned his Bachelor of Science from MSU in 1997, graduating cum laude with a major in Chemistry and a double minor in Mathematics & Biology. He received his medical degree from the University of Texas Medical Branch and completed post-graduate work in plastic and reconstructive surgery at the University of Texas Medical Branch John Sealy Hospitals and The Shriner’s Hospital for Children before accepting a fellowship at Harvard Medical School.

Dr. Obeng is currently the Director of his own private practice, MiKO Plastic Surgery and MiKO Surgery Center in Beverly Hills, California while also serving on staff at Cedars-Sinai Hospital in Los Angeles, California. Dr. Obeng is a noted author and lecturer on healthcare disparities around the globe. He has received numerous honors, awards and recognition for his professional achievements including a research grant from the National Institute of Health and the Herman A. Barnett Memorial Award for Excellence in Surgery and Anesthesia. His professional society memberships include the American Society of Plastic Surgeons, the American Society for Surgery of the Hand, and the American Society of Reconstructive Microsurgery.

Dr. Obeng recently launched a consulting firm, Global Health Solution, which is aimed to bridge the gap between morbidity and healthy living in developing countries. He believes a “Healthy country is a wealthy country.”

In Ghana, Dr. Obeng saw the pain caused by physical deformities, and the helplessness of those afflicted as they lived with their situation with no money, and too few qualified physicians to have the problem corrected. To resolve this issue, he then formed R.E.S.T.O.R.E. Worldwide, Inc. in 2008 (Restoring Emotional Stability Through Outstanding Reconstructive Efforts) to help those people and others in need. Since its inception in 2008 R.E.S.T.O.R.E.’s volunteer teams have traveled to 7 countries, including Gabon, Ghana, Guatemala, Mexico and Nigeria performing over 200 reconstructive surgeries worth over $ 5,000,000 USD and all on a pro-bono basis. Dr. Obeng credits the giving spirit of teachers, advisers, and fellow students during his time at Midwestern State University, The University of Texas and Harvard for instilling in him the need to help others. “I won’t forget where it all started,” he said.

About R.E.S.T.O.R.E.: R.E.S.T.O.R.E. is a 501 (c)(3) non-profit medical service organization that provides free reconstructive surgery and related medical services to children and adults with disfiguring deformities from birth, accidents and diseases. Many developing countries shun those afflicted with disfiguring deformities and look upon them as outcasts or “freaks”. Often their own families hide them from the general public to spare them from either being ridiculed or physically harmed because of their disfigured appearance.

Although there is an overwhelming need for plastic surgery in developing countries, these types of surgeries are not available because there are no personnel trained to provide the necessary surgeries. As part of the organizations mission they seek to educate and train local physicians in the techniques necessary to perpetuate their initial work to continually benefit more people for years to come.

“ONE FACE, ONE BREAST, ONE BODY AT A TIME”.
