Internet / WiFi / Long Distance


Met with royal family and Minister of Communications for all licenses necessary to build a wireless network tied back to fiber optics.

Met with Lebanese President, Emil Lahoud, at the royal palace to discuss internet, long-distance voice and a WiFi network in Beirut. Security was a key factor, plus, the cost of long-distance was hurting the country's economics of international trade.

Merida, MX / Hyper Baric Clinic

Hospital O'Horan

A family hobby, Bobby Vassallo has built or participated in the building of clinics and mobile clinics all over Mexico for over 40 years.  This Hyper Baric Clinic was built to aid recovery from diabetes related illnesses and cervical cancer.  The Merida area has the highest incidence of both on the planet.  Vassallo saw an need, found a chamber and rebuilt it for this specific purpose.  Nick Costas followed the project to conclusion.

The chamber was purchased from the Cousteau brothers after the death of Jacques.  The chamber, an 8 man, was used by Cousteau since the 60's.  It treats hundreds of patients a year in Merida and resides at Hospital Horan.
