About this book

His former running-mate and replacement, Marina Silva, surged into the lead in the polls. But attractive though her lack of a political machine might have seemed, it was a liability. Faced with sometimes underhand attacks from Ms Rousseff, Ms Silva wobbled. It did not help that she is an evangelical Protestant in what is still a largely Catholic country. These are real achievements. But alongside them are bigger, but less palpable, failures, both on the economy and in politics. The troubled world economy and the end of the great commodity boom see article have hurt Brazil.

But it has fared worse than its Latin American neighbours. She has damaged both Petrobras, the state oil company, and the ethanol industry by holding down the price of petrol to mitigate the inflationary impact of her loose fiscal policy. A bribery scandal in Petrobras underlines that it is the PT, and not its opponents as Ms Rousseff claims, who cannot be trusted with what was once a national jewel. No wonder the government has been unable to find the extra money for health care and transport that the protesters demanded.

For the past 12 years Lula, who still has the ear of the poor, has caricatured the PSDB as a party of heartless fat cats. He promises to put the country back on the path of economic growth. His record, and that of his party, makes his claim credible. He did so largely by cutting bureaucracy. He has an impressive team of advisers led by Arminio Fraga, a former Central Bank governor who is respected by investors.

As well as a return to sound macroeconomic policies, his team promise to slash the number of ministries, make Congress more accountable to voters, simplify the tax system and boost private investment in infrastructure. Mr Neves deserves to win. He has fought a dogged campaign and proved that he can make his economic policies work. With luck the endorsement of Ms Silva, a former PT member born in poverty, should bolster his case. Brazil needs growth and better government.

Mr Neves is likelier to deliver these than Ms Rousseff is. Por lo que era de esperar que hubiese perdido Rousseff en la primera vuelta de las elecciones presidenciales el 5 de octubre pasado. Cuando enfrentaba los ataques a veces solapados de Rousseff, Silva trastabillaba. Son logros reales. Pero le ha ido peor que a sus vecinos latinoamericanos. Su trayectoria, y la de su partido, le otorgan credibilidad. Posee un equipo impresionante de consejeros liderados por Arminio Fraga, antiguo presidente del Banco Central, y respetado por los inversionistas.

Neves merece ganar. El Brasil necesita crecimiento y un gobierno mejor. As our special report this week explains, firms of all types are harnessing AI to forecast demand, hire workers and deal with customers. Such grandiose forecasts kindle anxiety as well as hope. Many fret that AI could destroy jobs faster than it creates them. Barriers to entry from owning and generating data could lead to a handful of dominant firms in every industry.

Using AI, managers can gain extraordinary control over their employees. Amazon has patented a wristband that tracks the hand movements of warehouse workers and uses vibrations to nudge them into being more efficient. Workday, a software firm, crunches around 60 factors to predict which employees will leave. Humanyze, a startup, sells smart ID badges that can track employees around the office and reveal how well they interact with colleagues.

Surveillance at work is nothing new. Factory workers have long clocked in and out; bosses can already see what idle workers do on their computers. But AI makes ubiquitous surveillance worthwhile, because every bit of data is potentially valuable. Few laws govern how data are collected at work, and many employees unguardedly consent to surveillance when they sign their employment contract.

Where does all this lead? Trust and telescreens Start with the benefits. AI ought to improve productivity. Slack, a workplace messaging app, helps managers assess how quickly employees accomplish tasks. Companies will see when workers are not just dozing off but also misbehaving. They are starting to use AI to screen for anomalies in expense claims, flagging receipts from odd hours of the night more efficiently than a carbon-based beancounter can.

Employees will gain, too. Thanks to strides in computer vision, AI can check that workers are wearing safety gear and that no one has been harmed on the factory floor. Some will appreciate more feedback on their work and welcome a sense of how to do better. Machines can help ensure that pay rises and promotions go to those who deserve them. That starts with hiring.

People often have biases but algorithms, if designed correctly, can be more impartial. Software can flag patterns that people might miss.

No customer reviews

Algorithms will pick up differences in pay between genders and races, as well as sexual harassment and racism that human managers consciously or unconsciously overlook. Algorithms may not be free of the biases of their programmers. They can also have unintended consequences. The length of a commute may predict whether an employee will quit a job, but this focus may inadvertently harm poorer applicants. Older staff might work more slowly than younger ones and could risk losing their positions if all AI looks for is productivity. And surveillance may feel Orwellian—a sensitive matter now that people have begun to question how much Facebook and other tech giants know about their private lives.

Companies are starting to monitor how much time employees spend on breaks. Veriato, a software firm, goes so far as to track and log every keystroke employees make on their computers in order to gauge how committed they are to their company. Tracking the trackers Some people are better placed than others to stop employers going too far. If your skills are in demand, you are more likely to be able to resist than if you are easy to replace. Paid-by-the-hour workers in low-wage industries such as retailing will be especially vulnerable.

Even then, the choice in some jobs will be between being replaced by a robot or being treated like one. As regulators and employers weigh the pros and cons of AI in the workplace, three principles ought to guide its spread. First, data should be anonymised where possible. Microsoft, for example, has a product that shows individuals how they manage their time in the office, but gives managers information only in aggregated form. Second, the use of AI ought to be transparent.

Employees should be told what technologies are being used in their workplaces and which data are being gathered. As a matter of routine, algorithms used by firms to hire, fire and promote should be tested for bias and unintended consequences. Last, countries should let individuals request their own data, whether they are ex-workers wishing to contest a dismissal or jobseekers hoping to demonstrate their ability to prospective employers. The march of AI into the workplace calls for trade-offs between privacy and performance.

A fairer, more productive workforce is a prize worth having, but not if it shackles and dehumanises employees. Striking a balance will require thought, a willingness for both employers and employees to adapt, and a strong dose of humanity. En las empresas invirtieron cerca de USD Los supervisores que usen la IA van a tener un control extraordinario sobre sus empleados.

La vigilancia en el trabajo no es reciente. Son escasas las leyes que rigen la manera como los datos se obtienen en el ambiente laboral: muchos empleados aceptan ser vigilados sin saber lo que firman cuando son contratados. Confianza y telepantallas Comencemos con las ventajas. La IA debe incrementar la productividad. A pesar de sus beneficios, la IA tiene un potencial de problemas. En segundo lugar, el uso de la IA debe ser transparente.

The Economist sept. They understood that the UK, and all its collective trials and achievements—the industrial revolution, the Empire, victory over the Nazis, the welfare state—were as much a part of their patrimony as the Scottish Highlands or English cricket. They knew, instinctively, that these concentric rings of identity were complementary, not opposed. At least, they used to. After the referendum on Scottish independence on September 18th, one of those layers—the UK—may cease to exist, at least in the form recognisable since the Act of Union three centuries ago.

More and more Scots are deciding that the UK, which their soldiers, statesmen, philosophers and businessmen have done so much to build and ornament, does not cradle their Scottishness but smothers it. That outcome, once unthinkable, would be bad for Scotland and tragic for what remained of the UK. The damage a split would do The rump of Britain would be diminished in every international forum: why should anyone heed a country whose own people shun it? Since Britain broadly stands for free trade and the maintenance of international order, this would be bad for the world.

The prospect of a British exit from the EU would scare investors much more than a possible Scottish exit from Britain see article. The people of Scotland alone will decide the future of Britain, and they are not obliged to worry about what becomes of the state they would leave. At the heart of the nationalist campaign is the claim that Scotland would be a more prosperous and more equal country if it went solo. It is rich in oil and inherently decent, say the nationalists, but impoverished by a government in Westminster that has also imposed callous policies. They blame successive British governments for almost every ill that has befallen Scotland, from the decline of manufacturing industry to ill-health to the high price of sending parcels in the Highlands.

If Westminster has not reversed all the deleterious effects of globalisation and technology, that is because to do so is impossible. To break up a country over such small, recent annoyances would be nuts. Scotland would not, in fact, be richer alone. But oil revenues are erratic. If an independent state were to smooth these fluctuations by setting up an oil fund, it would have less cash to spend now. In any case, the oil is gradually running out.

In order to maintain state spending after it is gone, taxes would have to rise. And a crunch might come much sooner. Foreign investors and big businesses that mostly serve English customers could well move south. It might relent, but only if Scotland agrees to such strict oversight that independence ends up meaning little. They are far too sanguine. If Scotland goes, the rest of Britain will be furious, both at the Scots and at their own leaders, who will be impelled to drive a hard bargain. Mr Salmond is on stronger ground when he argues that if Scotland does not leave Britain it might be dragged out of the EU against its will.

This is indeed a danger, but in going independent Scotland would swap the possibility of an EU exit for a certain future as a small, vulnerable country. Its best hope of remaining influential is to stay put, and fight the Eurosceptics. A lot to lose In the end the referendum will turn not on calculations of taxes and oil revenue, but on identity and power. The idea that Scots can shape their own destiny, both at the referendum and afterwards, is exhilarating. Moreover, as Westminster politicians of all stripes have hastily made clear, if Scotland votes No, the devolved administration will soon get so much clout that the practical difference between staying in the union and leaving it will narrow.

That would also lead to the distribution of power away from Westminster and to other bits of Britain, which should have happened long ago.

Table of contents

So by staying in, Scots will not just save the union but enhance it, as they have for years. For the UK, with all its triumphs and eccentricities, belongs to Scots as much as it does to the English—even if increasing numbers of them seem ready to disown that glorious, hard-earned heritage, and to simplify their identities by stripping out one of those concentric rings. That goes against both the spirit of this fluid century—in which most people have multiple identities, whether of place, ethnicity or religion—and the evidence of the preceding three.

For all its tensions and rivalries, and sometimes because of them, the history of the union shows that the Scots, Welsh, English and Northern Irish are stronger, more tolerant and more imaginative together than they would be apart.

Between and output per person in poor countries excluding China grew an average of 3. Global poverty rates tumbled. Unfortunately, the era of rapid catch-up already seems to be over see article. Growth has fallen sharply in many emerging economies. In their output per person, on average, grew just 1. At that pace convergence would take more than a century.

And the growth outlook is darkening further. The political and economic consequences of this slow-down in convergence will be profound. Billions of people will be poorer for a lot longer than they might have expected just a few years ago. Companies that bet on vibrant emerging markets as the main source of future profits will need a new strategy.

A lot therefore rides on understanding why growth has slowed, and how to speed it up once more. But strip away the effects of the business cycle and the one-offs, and there are several reasons why the pace of catch-up is likely to be permanently slower. One is that the boom in the s was to some extent a one-off itself. And China cannot industrialise itself from scratch again. On top of that there are signs that the march of technology may be making it harder to catch up. A standard route for poor countries to become wealthier is low-skill, labour-intensive manufacturing. Growth rates soar as people move from the land and into factories to sew T-shirts or assemble toys.

Wages in manufacturing tend to catch up faster and more completely than in other sectors. But in the 21st-century digital economy, basic manufacturing is becoming less important. The assembly of goods adds less value than the design and engineering work at which rich countries excel. Technology has made manufacturing less labour-intensive, giving firms less incentive to seek out cheap labour in poor countries.

If catch-up is harder than a decade ago, it is not impossible. The basic laws of economics—that poorer countries with less capital ought to grow faster than rich ones—still hold. But prospering in a knowledge-based, increasingly digital, global economy will demand a broader reform agenda.

Freeing trade is as important as ever, but barriers must now be lowered in services as well as goods. Education becomes even more vital if emerging economies cannot count on moving barely literate workers from fields to factories. The roads, railways and ports that were essential to fast growth in the manufacturing era will remain essential, but adequate infrastructure will have to include reliable broadband and mobile coverage too. Because both services and knowledge industries are concentrated in cities, urban policy will matter more.

In some places that is already happening. Others, from Turkey to Indonesia, are still complacent. Regaining momentum will not be easy, but countries that are not prepared to change do not stand a chance. Apetito por las reformas Algunas de las debilidades actuales son temporales. Sin embargo China no puede volver a industrializarse desde cero otra vez. En algunas partes ello ocurre ya. This has sometimes been ignored: Deng himself acted the despot in times of crisis.

He has become the most powerful Chinese ruler certainly since Deng, and possibly since Mao.

Pierre Bourdieu in Hispanic Literature and Culture | SpringerLink

Whether this is good or bad for China depends on how Mr Xi uses his power. Mao pushed China to the brink of social and economic collapse, and Deng steered it on the right economic path but squandered a chance to reform it politically. If Mr Xi used his power to reform the way power works in China, he could do his country great good.

So far, the signs are mixed. Taking on the party It may well be that the decision to promote Mr Xi as a single personality at the expense of the group was itself a collective one. Some in China have been hankering for a strongman; a politician who would stamp out corruption, reverse growing inequalities and make the country stand tall abroad a task Mr Xi has been taking up with relish—seearticle.

So have many foreign businessfolk, who want a leader who would smash the monopolies of a bloated state sector and end years of dithering over economic reforms. However the decision came about, Mr Xi has grabbed it and run with it. He has taken charge of secretive committees responsible for reforming government, overhauling the armed forces, finance and cyber-security. His campaign against corruption is the most sweeping in decades. The generals, wisely, bow to him: earlier this year state newspapers published pages of expressions of loyalty to him by military commanders.

He is the first leader to employ a big team to build his public profile. But he also has a flair for it—thanks to his stature in a height-obsessed country he would tower over all his predecessors except Mao , his toughness and his common touch. One moment he is dumpling-eating with the masses, the next riding in a minibus instead of the presidential limousine. He is now more popular than any leader since Mao see article.

All of this helps Mr Xi in his twofold mission. His first aim is to keep the economy growing fast enough to stave off unrest, while weaning it off an over-dependence on investment in property and infrastructure that threatens to mire it in debt. Mr Xi made a promising start last November, when he declared that market forces would play a decisive role not even Deng had the courage to say that.

There have since been encouraging moves, such as giving private companies bigger stakes in sectors that were once the exclusive preserve of state-owned enterprises, and selling shares in firms owned by local governments to private investors. Mr Xi has also started to overhaul the household-registration system, a legacy of the Mao era that makes it difficult for migrants from the countryside to settle permanently in cities.

He has relaxed the one-child-per-couple policy, a Deng-era legacy that has led to widespread abuses. The latest data suggest the economy is cooling more rapidly than the government had hoped see article. Much will depend on how far he gets with the second, harder, part of his mission: establishing the rule of law. The question is whether Mr Xi is prepared for the law to apply to everyone, without fear or favour. His drive against corruption suggests that the answer is a qualified no.

The campaign is characterised by a Maoist neglect of institutions. It has succeeded in instilling fear among officials, but has done little to deal with the causes of graft: an investigative mechanism that is controlled entirely by the party itself, a secret system of appointments to official positions in which loyalty often trumps honesty and controls on free speech that allow the crooked to silence their critics.

Mr Xi needs to set up an independent body to fight corruption, instead of leaving the job to party investigators and the feuding factions they serve. He should also require officials to declare all sources of income, property and other assets. Instead, he has been rounding up activists calling for such changes almost as vigorously as he has been confronting corruption.

In the absence of legal reform, he risks becoming a leader of the old stripe, who pursues vendettas in the name of fighting wrongdoers. That will have two consequences: there will be a new wave of corruption, and resentments among the party elite will, at some point, erupt. Mr Xi is making some of the right noises. Reforms are being tinkered with to make local courts less beholden to local governments. The party should stop meddling in the appointment of judges and, indeed, of legislators. The effect of such reforms would be huge. They would signal a willingness by the party to begin loosening its monopoly of power and accepting checks and balances.

Deng once said that economic reform would fail without political reform. He should use his enormous power for the greatest good, and change the system. Todo lo cual le apoya a Xi en sus dos misiones. Xi igualmente ha comenzado a actualizar el sistema de registro de hogares, que es una reliquia de la era de Mao que pone trabas a quienes desean mudarse del campo a la ciudad. Xi suena bien algunas veces. Dice que desea que los tribunales le ayuden a "enjaular al poder. The government insists it has the means and the will to pay foreign bondholders. Few observers expect it to miss the deadline.

Even if it stays current on its financial dues, Venezuela is behind on other bills. Using an overvalued official rate means that the country is not making as much money as it could: the fiscal deficit reached Even worse than inflation is scarcity. The central bank stopped publishing monthly scarcity figures earlier this year, but independent estimates suggest that more than a third of basic goods are missing from the shelves. According to Freddy Ceballos, president of the federation of pharmacies Fefarven , six out of every ten medicines are unavailable.

The list runs from basic painkillers, such as paracetamol, to treatments for cancer and HIV. One unexpected side-effect has been a sharp increase in demand for coconut water, which Venezuelans normally buy to mix with whisky. Nowadays it is sought out more for its supposed anti-viral and anti-bacterial properties.

Unable to obtain what they need through normal channels, people are having to improvise. Those lucky enough to have friends or relatives abroad arrange for emergency relief. The mess is a reflection not just of import-dependence and a shortage of dollars, but also the mismanagement of domestic industry. Some food producers have been nationalised; price controls often leave manufacturers operating at a loss. Some price rises have recently been authorised, but manufacturers say it is impossible to maintain normal output with such stop-go policies.

The prospects for a change of course are gloomy. Bondholders may well keep getting paid. Al cierre del segundo trimestre las cuentas por pagar comerciales de Venezuela sobrepasan los El gobierno insiste en que tiene los medios y la voluntad de pagarle a los tenedores de bonos internacionales. Pocos observadores esperan que ocurra lo contrario. Aun cuando Venezuela siga solvente con sus obligaciones financieras, ya se encuentra en mora con otras deudas.

Un efecto colateral inesperado ha sido el fuerte incremento en la demanda de agua de coco, que los venezolanos normalmente mezclan con el whisky. Los sortarios que tienen amigos o familiares en el extranjero les piden ayuda de emergencia. Ya ha instituido el cierre nocturno de la frontera con Colombia, y planea tomar las huellas digitales de la gente para evitar las compras "excesivas". English to Spanish: America and Islamic State. Economist Sept. On September 23rd America led air strikes in Syria against both the warriors of Islamic State IS and a little-known al-Qaeda cell, called the Khorasan group, which it claimed was about to attack the West.

A president who has always seen his main mission as nation-building at home is now using military force in six countries—Syria, Iraq, Afghanistan, Pakistan, Yemen and Somalia. Preventing the group from carving out a caliphate means, at the very least, ensuring that neither of these two countries affords it a haven see article. But more than the future of IS is at stake in the streets of Raqqa and Mosul. It is a test that he has been failing until now. IS et al The sense that America is locked in relative decline has been growing in recent years, as it has languished under the shadow of the financial crisis and two long, difficult wars.

Why should a newly rich country like China take lectures about how to run its affairs from a president who struggles even to get his own budget through? America, meanwhile, seems swamped by the forces of disorder, either unable or unwilling to steady a world that is spinning out of control. IS embodies this frightening trend. It is, in the jargon, a non-state actor, and it thrives on chaos.

With each new humiliation of the governments in Iraq and Syria, it has accumulated more wealth, territory and recruits. Its rise has also reflected American policy. First, the poorly thought-out intervention of George W. When Syrians rose up against the regime of Bashar Assad, the president stood back in the hope that things would sort themselves out—leaving Mr Assad free to commit atrocities against his own people.

About , Syrians have died and 10m have been driven from their homes. Denied early American support, the moderate Syrian opposition has fragmented, leaving the field to the ruthless and well-organised IS. Standing back has not worked well elsewhere in the world, either.

He wanted the United States to be seen less as a unilateral bully, more as the leader of world opinion. Yet when America stepped back, its allies stepped back, too. The countries that most eagerly came forward were its rivals, such as Russia and China. IS has induced a change of heart among the American people. Before vicious extremists seized the city of Mosul and began to cut off Western heads on social media, Americans doubted the merit of further military action in the Middle East.

When they realised that IS threatened them directly, they began to demand protection. Mr Obama therefore has a chance not just to strike a blow for order in the Middle East, but also to give the declinists pause. From axis of evil to network of death He has brute force on his side. The disastrous mismanagement of post-invasion Iraq has tended to eclipse the overwhelming potency of American firepower at the beginning.

Radiology is a contrasting speciality of medicine On the one hand, some of its techniques and devices have drastically evolved, such as the scan while others have remained virtually unaltered barium enema and conventional x-rays. Radiology faces the challenge of combining this technological evolution and its profitability, since these advancements often require high cost devices, which are not integrated into the market as quickly as desired.

In any case, this speciality is moving towards the intensive use of technology and preventive medicine. Being able to help patients by means of Diagnostic Imaging is what I love the most about my career. Each patient is unique, and consequently also different. Therefore, our daily work is never a routine one, every case poses a new challenge and every little detail obtained from diagnostic radiology adds up in order to reach a final accurate diagnosis.

Regarding this project, first I would like to highlight the great professionalism and humanity displayed by its team, as well as its agility in diagnosing and treating patients pathologies, thanks to the new technologies available at the centre.

It quickly became a simple, safe, accurate and affordable alternative to diagnose lesions of the gastrointestinal tract and made it possible to collect representative tissue samples for histological studies, facilitating the distinction between benign and malignant lesions, and early-stage or late-stage ones.

However, future Gastroenterology has yet more to offer. The use of genetics is already a reality for conditions, such as: celiac disease, lactose intolerance, inflammatory bowel disease and multiple polyposis syndromes. There will be further progress regarding the diagnosis and treatment of hepatitis B and C. Faecal microbiota transplants will be used beyond the treatment for those cases of pseudomembranous enterocolitis that are refractory to conventional treatment, and it may well become a therapeutic alternative for obesity, diabetes mellitus and inflammatory bowel disease.

Recent advancements in neurophysiology of the digestive tract, the increased understanding of the role played by already discovered neuropeptides and by those yet to be uncovered, as well as the real prospects of pharmacologically altering their mediated responses, anticipate changes in the way obesity and functional disorders of the digestive tract are dealt with. We seem to be approaching the digestive pathology of the ageing process, and we, along with cardiologists specialising in haemodynamics and interventional radiologists, shall face the challenge of resolving gastrointestinal vascular disorders.

I realised my call to medicine at an early age, during my elementary and secondary education. This vocation reflects that I was inclined to accept a specific way of life. The well-known idea of protecting others from getting ill, of curing their illnesses when the aforementioned circumstance is not possible, or of, at least, relieving their suffering when healing is beyond our reach and the sometimes ignored noble desire to be needed and fulfil those needs are among the reasons for this vocation.

When I decided to pursue my specialisation in Gastroenterology, I had already completed my residency in Internal Medicine and I had experience dealing with pathologies related to other specialities, such as: Neurology, Cardiology, Pulmonology, Rheumatology, Endocrinology and Nephrology. Out of all of them, I was particularly interested in digestive pathology, which I thought was a combination of reflective thinking and action, since it offered the training needed to perform examinations, such as endoscopy and ultrasound, which could be used as a way of instantly confirming or excluding a presumed diagnosis, or as a therapeutic modality to solve the conditions afflicting patients.

CMED is an innovative organisation that comprises a highly qualified group of experts in different areas, in order to study, diagnose and treat the vast, prevailing and very diverse digestive pathology. To this end, the centre is equipped with state-of-the-art technology, which ensures that patients are provided with the highest quality service, in line with the latest in digestive disease care management.. CMED offers exciting possibilities for working with a group of renowned experts, with whom I can share experiences, exchange ideas, renew concepts and continue the ongoing training and learning process that is associated with Gastroenterology and Medicine in general.

He is a general and digestive system surgeon. Freire Torres is part of Dr. PhD in Medicine and Surgery. Rural and primary care doctor. Rotations within the following departments:. Freire Torres greatest hobby is cooking. He spends his spare time travelling. And he also enjoys spending time with his family and friends.

Digestive medicine is the area that deals with prevention, diagnosis, treatment and monitoring of digestive, pancreas and liver conditions. Currently, there is a high degree of understanding based on scientific evidence, which has been used to develop highly advanced technology in order to meet the objective of benefiting our patients. Despite its level of specialisation, digestive medicine should always provide patients with coordinated, efficient and, above all, personalised assistance.

LMedicine is the most noble and comprehensive career there is. Directly working with people is the aspect I love most about it. We can help people, both by preventing and healing conditions. CMED is staffed with a multidisciplinary professional team that is able to effectively coordinate every strategy for the benefit of our patients.

He also enjoys DIY projects and likes restoring old furniture.

In my opinion, General Surgery keeps on being the standard treatment for numerous abdominal conditions. In recent years, we have witnessed, on the one hand, the progress of minimally invasive techniques that guarantee the same efficiency causing less surgical aggression to patients, and on the other, the development of new oncology drugs that ensure a response to combined therapy that was unthinkable just a few years ago.

In this context, multidisciplinary teams improve success rates by dealing with illness from various points of view. From this perspective, I find CMEDs project to be incredibly exciting, since it focuses on patients, who are surrounded by numerous specialists in different areas of medicine, in order to offer them a multidisplinary approach for their conditions.. He is a paediatric gastroenterologist. Bodas Pinedo specialises in conditions, such as: celiac disease, constipation and diarrhoea, poor growth failure to thrive and food allergies and intolerances.

Grade: Cum laude distinction. Bodas Pinedo tries to devote his spare time to his favourite hobbies, such as: playing tennis, paddle tennis or football, as well as listening to classical music. My subspecialty is broad inasmuch as it encompasses the areas of Paediatric Gastroenterology, Hepatology and Nutrition. The progress of laboratory techniques and technological advancements have resulted in the increase of diagnosis of some conditions, such as celiac disease, and have made it easier to conduct some digestive tests on children, which previously were more complicated.

On the other hand, we are seeing an increased incidence of conditions related to food allergies. Finally, we surely cannot forget that my patients are mostly children, thus causing the least harm possible is essential.. What I love the most about my career is helping my patients and their families feel better, dealing with their conditions, so that they can live their lives as normally as possible.

Regarding CMED, the aspect I find the most appealing about the project is being able to work within a professional team focused on digestive conditions, which strives to provide patients with the best diagnosis and treatment possible. The addition of a paediatric gastroenterologist to this team would expand the age range of those patients that will be able to benefit from CMEDs care services.

He is a gastroenterologist, with over 25 years experience.

He is married with two daughters.. The part of Medicine focused on the digestive system is a very broad speciality, which encompasses two great areas: Gastroenterology and Hepatology. Technological advancements over the last decades have driven the development of those techniques used within this speciality, namely, Endoscopy, Ultrasound and the combination of these two: Endoscopy Ultrasound. Regarding Endoscopy, its progress can be divided in two stages: from "Endoscopy Diagnosis" to "Endoscopy Treatment", which allows us to treat bleeding lesions, remove polyps, place prosthetics to alleviate tumours and remove gallstones from the biliary duct, among other uses.

This therapeutic side has offered quicker, simpler, less aggressive and more cost-efficient alternatives to surgery, which cause less complications and, consequently, can be used in a complementary way. We will have to deal with emerging conditions, such as morbid obesity. What I love the most about my career is the simple notion that my work is aimed at helping people heal or at least relieve their suffering, when the former is not possible.
