Dr. David Samadi: Mitt Romney’s Prostate Cancer Prognosis Good

For Mitt Romney, his decision to treat his prostate cancer with surgery instead of radiation may have saved his life, according to Dr. David Samadi. Other politicians like presidential nominee John Kerry and Colin Powell, the former Secretary of State, have also had surgery to remove the prostate after a diagnosis of cancer. In 2017, former Presidential nominee for the Republican party, Mitt Romney, became part of the statistic of 161,360 prostate cancer diagnoses that year. It’s expected to reach 164,690 new diagnoses in 2018 according to the American Cancer Society.

On average, 60% of the men diagnosed with prostate cancer are over the age of 65 with an average age of 66. It is rare that men under 40 are diagnosed. Mitt Romney was 70 at the time of his diagnosis.

Dr. David Samadi discusses the options for treatments after a prostate cancer diagnosis. In almost every case where they are able to localize the cancer to the prostate, he recommends surgery. There is almost a 100% survival rate for patients who choose surgery after localization. Patients who choose radiation over surgery are more likely to develop secondary cancer from the damaging effects on a genetic level after treatment. They are also twice as likely to die and 1.5 times less likely to live longer than a patient who chose surgery.

Dr. David Samadi immigrated from Iran in 1979 after their revolution with his younger brother. He and his brother moved to Belgium at the ages of 15 and 19 without their parents. The two continued their education throughout Belgium, London, and the United States.

Dr. David Samadi is currently a Fox News Consultant and Contributor as well as the Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital as well as the Chairman of Urology since June of 2013. He brought his entire surgical team with him from his previous position at Mt. Sinai Medical School where he was the Vice Chair of Urology and the Chief of Robotic Surgery. From 2002 to 2007, he served as the Director of Laparoscopic Surgery at Columbia Presbyterian Medical Center in New York after completing his education.

Samadi resides in Old Westbury, New York and is married to Iranian born Sahar Danielpour. The couple has two children, a boy and a girl who are happy and healthy. The Samadi’s believes highly in love, loyalty, and devotion to family and the United States.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey

While Sharon R. Bolton’s ruling regarding the pardoning of Joe Arpaio, former Maricopa County Sheriff, by President Donald Trump came as no surprise, it was met by significant opposition from the citizens he once terrorized, most notably, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. The former sheriff made national headlines due to his widely publicized crimes and violations, including the implementation of “tent city” – the jail, which he famously regarded as his own “concentration camp.” Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Michael Lacey | LinkedIn

The longstanding feud between the ex-sheriff and the newspapermen began almost from the day he was elected in 1992, culminating in years of mutual disdain that eventually came to a climax with Larkin and Lacey’s arrest at their homes ten years ago. Although promptly dismissed, the unlawful arrest resulted in a three-year battle in court, with Larkin and Lacey coming out victorious.

In 1970, as the United States experienced an inner turmoil that had not been seen since The Great Depression, protests regarding the Vietnam War, and a number of other economic and political issues resulted in unprecedented push-back by the citizens of America.

As traditional news outlets continued to focus on covering the events of the time with an uber-conservative lens, the need for an alternative voice was greater than ever, resulting in an estimated 500 underground newspapers.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, staunch supporters of the anti-war movement, had already dropped out of college at Arizona State University, and in response to the Kent State Killings, decided to dive into the fight.

Along with students Frank Fiore, Karen Lofgren, Nick Stupey, and Hal Smith, Michael Lacey, kicked off the first issue of the Phoenix New Times. With Michael Lacey acting as editor, overseeing the content produced by the Phoenix New Times, Jim Larkin, who would join the group two years later in 1972, handled the marketing aspects.

Larkin, who was already married with children, implemented a practical approach to the business of the New Times brand, helping to secure the support of several established organizations, including J.C. Penny, who was the first to take out full-page ads in the publication.

Over the next few years, the Phoenix New Times saw an exponential jump in readership through the addition of satirical cartoons, such as Bob Boze Bell’s “Honkey Tonk Sue,” as well as the coverage of alternative cultural staples, such as rock music, which at the time had been largely ignored by the mainstream.

1983 would mark the rise of New Times Media, beginning with the purchase of Westword – a Denver-based news-and-arts weekly publication that had begun experiencing a series of downturns under Patricia Calhoun.

This move would lead to the purchase of 17 additional publications throughout the United States, including OC Weekly, LA Weekly, Nashville Scene, Miami New Times, and the most prominent of them all, New York City’s own, Village Voice.

These acquisitions would give New Times Media a strong presence in every major market across the United States, leading to a four-decade run atop the alternative news market, as well as a myriad of accolades and awards, most notably the Pulitzer Prize in 2007.

As Unicorn Queen, Doe knew it was her duty to raise the lipstick bar just a bit higher and produce a brighter hue to fill the industry void. She took a hundred dollars of her own money and her huge dream and created what is now known as Lime Crime. Soon came lipstick, eye-shadow, rainbow liquid liners, polish for your nails, lip gloss and more. Doe studied fashion design and grew up in New York after moving here from Russia.

Lime Crime is makeup today but it didn’t start that way. Doe started to design her own line of clothes and later got the idea to fill the makeup void and make the colors that matched her creative outfits. When Doe was showing off her clothes for the website, she would mix up her own colors and use that makeup for the photo shoots simply because she couldn’t get the colors she needed for off the rack makeup. Learn more:  http://doedeerefam.com/

Doe Deere inspires everyone she talks to and tells them to embrace their dreams and move forward taking action to achieve their goals and dreams. Doe is a firm believer that dreams do come true.

This started to build her a loyal fan base and today the company uses this method on Instagram. Lime Crime has over 3 million people who follow on that social media alone.Regardless of if you follow the brand Lime Crime on social media or not, you will no doubt love their product line as long as you believe in using makeup that is bold and beautiful to create and inspire your own personal freedom.
