Fine Dining for Man’s Best Friend

Healthy eating and lifestyles are not just for infomercials trying to sell you exercise equipment or a new blender anymore. As humans begin to have more awareness of what we actually put in our bodies, it makes sense that we start giving the same consideration to what we feed our pets.

Beneful currently offers eight dry dog food varieties and four wet dog food options. Available nationwide in grocery stores and online, Beneful offers plenty of dog food options to match the specific needs of your beloved pet.

This means that if you are not satisfied with your dog food purchase, within 60 days of the purchase date, you can mail the necessary information to Beneful for a full refund of your purchase.

Dr. Sergio Cortes Goes to the Worst Area of Flooding Region

“The level of concern is high, as is the level of uncertainty” is what the World Health Organization director general Dr. Margaret Chan said recently in a meeting with her executive board members. Just ask Brazilian Sec. of Health Dr. Sergio Cortes. Dr. Sergio Cortes has been actively combating the disease since May of last year when it was first detected in Brazil. Health Sec. Cortes explains to Extra.Globo the lack of immunity in Brazil for this virus has greatly aggravated the situation.

Considering the fact that there is no vaccine for the Zika virus and the fact that no of early screening tests have yet been standardized on wikipedia secretary Cortes has decided to go after the Aedes aegypti mosquito because that is the most common way that the Zika virus can be transmitted between humans. The reason is that the human beings are not contagious and therefore cannot transmit the Zika virus however as soon as a mosquito bites an infected person and then becomes a vehicle to spread the contagion quickly. We are seen how quickly rapidly spread in the last several months from Brazil to Columbia and then to 24 countries and South and Central America it then spread to North America and has been found in Mexico and in several states in the United States of America.

Secretary Cortes reported on wikipedia has assembled evaluation teams of state workers and volunteers that have been trained and and are ready to help disinfect the contaminated water in the region of the city and greater area near Xerém, Duque de Caxia. Most of the members of that will be deployed will consist of people with local knowledge that will help in the discovery of state and contaminated water that will then be disinfected with sodium hypochlorite.

Dr. Cortes and his teams of both volunteers and state workers are working together to begin taking the action needed to try and avert a bigger problem for the rest of the country. Dr. Cortes explains how taking aggressive action directly to the breeding grounds (free standing water) will indeed be effective in it is hoped that the sodium hypochlorite will help to kill the larvae as well as to disinfect the contaminated waters in the region.

Success is and will, never be the key to happiness. Happiness is, in fact, the actual key to success. If you love what you do there’s a significant leeway, you will be successful in it. At one point in life, almost everyone dreams of owning their own home. The best investment on earth, as they say, is earth. This is probably one reason real estate is as big as it is today.

One quite successful real estate player today is Greg Hague. The law professor has accomplished more in his life as a youth than most people will likely achieve in an entire lifetime. At 18 years of age, Greg already had a real estate license. The Miami University graduate has a Bachelor’s degree in Science and a Juris Doctor degree from the American University Washington College of Law. In his twenties, Greg took up Hague Realtors, his family real estate business, and by 1978 had already branched out to form his own real estate firm.

In 1981, Greg moved his family to Scottsdale, Arizona. He was a founding member of WHY USA Inc, which he later sold to his management team. Among his many achievements, Greg has served on the Publications Committee of the National Assembly of Realtors and received the leading bar exam score in the state of Arizona in 2010 from the Arizona School of Law. Greg founded Real Estate Mavericks, which serves as a real estate coaching company. His prowess in the field has led him to become one of the most sought after real estate entrepreneurs with some even referring to him as the quarterback of real estate.

In a recent article on Forbes, Hague took to the stage to give his views on the present-day state of the housing market. He criticized the market for sticking to older sales strategies that cost the home seller about 3-8% reduction in selling prices of real estate. Hague regarded the current sales strategy as hope marketing where sales are entirely dependent on the sellers luck. Hague briefed on his plan to introduce a whole new system of sales that follows a strategy similar to Apple and Amazon’s.

Hague believes building anticipation is a vital part of sales and hopes his new system will change the way sellers market real estate. Instead of putting up a yard sign and placing the home in MLS on availability, Hague’s strategy aims at building anticipation for the home first then putting up the sign when the buyers demand will be unbearable.

Hague also debates that the MLS system put in place shouldn’t make known the number of days a piece of property has been in the market as it only lowers the market value. Greg Hague’s new implementations will revolutionize and shake up the real estate segment. Here’s a man who has made hard work a habit and gotten satisfaction from pushing himself to the absolute limits knowing all his efforts will pay off.
