On January 15th the last of the seven dengue hydration stations in the Brazilian city of Xerém was completed and each features 12 hydration chairs to help re hydrate patients suffering from dengue fever and other maladies. It seems that the centers were completed just in time to be able and assist the people of the region with some of the worst flooding that the area has seen as late. With a capacity of 300 people the centers have now been used for this flooding emergency as well. Dr. Sergio Cortes was about to go tour the flooded area when a reporter from
Extra.Global came to interview him about the floods and the increasingly cases of widespread transmission of the Zika virus in the state. The Zika virus was initially discovered in the northern and eastern parts of Brazil in 2014. With only mild symptoms it really never raised a major concern until recently when a link was established to almost 4000 birth defects in Brazil. Dr. Sergio Cortes according to wikipedia is also a medical expert and he explains that the Zika virus may also be linked to Guillain-Barre syndrome another autoimmune and neurological disease. It’s all about the mosquitoe’s because they are the chief way that the Zika virus could be transmitted. Sec.Sergio Cortes explains that people are not contagious when they are infected with the Zika virus and do not have the ability to pass the virus on to another person. This makes the mosquito the transmitter of the virus. The particular species involved, Aedes aegypti, is a very active bitter. The female Aedes aegypti mosquito has been known to carry dengue, the Chikungunya virus and the Zika virus.
Dr. Cortes is also creating a civilian program to help train people with the ability help with early detection of some of the symptoms of these viruses. The goal is to help identify the symptoms in time to isolate the picture and prevent the mosquitoes from transmitted disease. The other part of Dr. Cortes’s plan is the decontaminating of the infected waters in the region. With 200,000 troops deployed that are actively spraying sodium hypochlorite into contaminated waters Dr. Cortes is hopeful. Another 10,000 bottles of sodium hypochlorite have been passed out to civilians so that they may place the sodium hypochlorite in any contaminated waters and into their residential tanks

The Daily Herald posted a Bloomberg News article by Craig Giammona on 11/22/2015 title “Premium dog food sales with new innovations in healthy food.” Craig describes how traditional dog food companies like Purina are being challenged by companies like Freshpet and Blue Buffalo who offer dog food that is made from fresh and natural ingredients. Their dog food doesn’t use preservatives, avoids filler products like grain, has a short shelf life, and this “eat-like-your-owner” or “Paleo diet for pets” movement is gaining in popularity and market share. In July 2015, Purina purchased certified organic dog food producer Merrick Pet Care in hopes of adding a brand of dog food that caters to the fresh and natural market that now accounts for about half of all dog food sales. Merrick’s brand of dog food will be an addition to Purina’s highly successful Beneful product which does over a billion dollars in annual sales. Beneful has been one of Purina’s most successful dog food products since it was introduced in 2001, and recently they have undergone a multi-million-dollar ad campaign promoting the healthy benefits of this product. Beneful comes in many varieties of both wet and dry dog foods that are made from natural ingredients such as beef, chicken, fish, carrots, peas, and other natural products. Just like all Purina dog food products, Beneful must pass strict food quality and safety standards that have been set by the FDA, USDA and AAFCO before the product is put on store shelves. Purina’s suppliers are also held to a high standard as they must meet product safety, sanitation and manufacturing protocols before Purina will use their products in making the dog food. Craig Giammona points out that the premium fresh and natural dog food industry is growing in market share despite the products being more expensive than standard or traditional dog food. Even with the increased prices, dog owners seem to be willing to pay more for dog food that helps to make their dogs happier and healthier.

There’s a lot of pride floating around my home, and I’m proud to say that it’s because of the article that I found the other day. The article from the Daily Herald is about premium dog food companies and the manufacturers on beneful.com that produce their products. I shared it with my wife, and we bought a new kind of dog food for our puppy. The dog is so much more energetic. I started researching dog foods and the diets that dogs should have when our dog started acting kind of lazy. Now, he is just as youthful as her ever was when he was a puppy.
What Kind Of Food Do You Choose?
Our dog knows what tastes good. He won’t eat just any old food. He’ll sniff it, and if it doesn’t agree with what he thinks food should smell like, then he won’t even try it. He’s a very picky eater. With that in mind, he hasn’t turned his nose up once to Beneful on beneful.com. In fact, I have never seen him so excited about breakfast and dinner at our house. It is like he’s five years younger all of a sudden. That dog food from Beneful is like the doggy fountain of youth for my dog. It made him turn a new chapter in his life. He’s got the energy to go on walks whenever we get the leash, so we bring along Beneful Baked Delights to cheer him up along the way.
That article gave some great details about what goes into making the best dog foods on the market and what high quality ingredients go into those foods. Premium dog foods, like Benefuls, use real ingredients in their mixture, so the manufacturer pays more for the production costs. It’s very gratifying to find out that the companies actually care when they make premium foods for dogs. The dog appreciates the fact that we buy Benefuls now. He likes Chopped Blends and Beneful Dry Dog Food Original.

Long-established business and technology executive Shaygan Kheradpir is now the CEO and board chairman of the international networking firm Coriant. He moved into his new position after serving as the head of Jupiter Networks.
The son of a doctor, the 55-year-old Kheradpir was born in London and raised in Iran before coming to the United States. Receiving his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degrees from Cornell University, he joined GTE in 1987 and would later serve as the company’s chief information officer. It was in that position that he earned respect for delivering new products on schedule.
In his post at Verizon Communications, which was formed in a merger between GTE and Bell Atlantic, Kheradpir established teams of engineers who would develop a host of new products. One such creation was iobi, which manages such items as address books and caller identification services. His department also developed a portable device that was combination telephone, router and modem.
Kheradpir was employed by Barclays, the banking and financial institution, before joining Jupiter in 2014. In his position at Jupiter, Kheradpir would contribute to both the development of new products and to proposals designed to reduce business costs. He moved to Coriant last September. His outside activities have included three years of service on the advisory board of the YMCA of Greater New York.
Coriant became an independent company in 2013, but traces its roots to the international conglomerate Siemens. Itself offering services that extend into more than 100 countries, Coriant sells hardware and software used in the transmission of computerized information. Its products are designed to reduce complexities, improve utilization and create new sources of revenue. Its clients range from financial institutions and other large enterprises to government agencies. Since its separation from Nokia Siemens Networks, Coriant has operated under the ownership of Marlin Equity Partners.

Greg Hague changed the way real estate is sold and he’s willing to share his successful strategies with other real estate agents. Hague isn’t shy about criticizing the way many real estate agents go about selling homes; he says that the methods that they use are out-dated and ineffective. Companies selling cell phones put more effort into building excitement about new models than real estate agents put into building buzz about new homes coming on the market, according to Hague.
To enlighten real estates about the practices he used, Greg Hague founded Real estate Mavericks, a coaching program that explains his unconventional, yet rewarding, approach. One of Hague’s tactics is to invite select home buyers to private showings before a house for sale sign goes on the lawn. Traditionally, agents put the sign up as quickly as possible, however Hague says that with his method, potential buyers feel like they are getting an insider tip. It’s a marketing tactic that works well in other industries, yet most real estate agents never bother to learn from the inventiveness of salespersons in other fields.
During Real Estate Mavericks coaching sessions, Hague explains all the tactics he’s used during his long, successful real estate career. No one tactic works in all markets and for all types of homes, therefore, during Real Estate Mavericks coaching sessions, Greg explains what he practiced as a new real estate agent up until he became a top luxury home seller. He’s had a long, fruitful career, but now, Hague focuses on helping others in the real estate industry.
Real Estate Mavericks is a grueling 90-day course, however, real estate agents come away with the tools they need to soar in their chosen career. Participants discover totally new ways to get listings and sell homes; they even learn new ways of approaching their job. Hague expects everyone who earns his “Top Dollar Agent” certification to come away with greatly increased marketing expertise, enabling him or her to sell homes quickly, and for a good price. All this is also good news for home sellers who want to get the most money out of their house.

Sear and Roebuck had the idea first with their giant mail order catalog. A way for those in distant places to receive, via snail mail, fashions and household goods which, formerly, were only available to in-store shoppers. For decades they set the standard for brick and mortar retail stores and held that position until the debut of discount retailers, K-Mart and Wal-Mart. Next it was E-Bay entering the scene and forever changing how we buy stuff. But now there is Slyce, Inc. which has added a new and different wrinkle to shopping. If you have the Slyce image recognition app on your android phone all you have to do is take a photo of anything you want and Slyce will find it for you. You can complete the purchase right there on your cell phone or at home on your lap top. What could be easier! Sear and Roebuck would have been proud of this achievement by Slyce.
If you are like the millions of shoppers who have purchased part or all of their Christmas shopping on line, this technology will seem like a terrific idea, and it is. But there are downsides to shopping on-line. Research shows that 75-85% of online purchases do not end in a sale. There may be an out of stock issue or an item, size or color which is not available, but with Slyce alternative choices are immediately offered to the E-shopper, in hopes of finalizing the sale. The idea that you can take a cell phone photo of an admired item and have Slyce find it for you bodes well for E-commerce but may be the death knell for brick and mortar operations.
In a recent article in Market Wired it was announced that Slyce has a new contract with a major toy manufacturer which effectively doubles the value of their earlier contract. Slyce, based in Toronto, Canada has a professionally produced video extolling the virtues of using their system, and in this age of conspicuous consumption by using Slyce our shopping duties have been greatly reduced.
We live in a time of following trends and styles. Styles and fashions presented on television and in the movies have dictated tastes for decades. Individualism has been replaced by a sense of trying to fit in and to not stand out from the crowd. It may be a sad reflection on our consumer based material society but Slyce sure makes shopping a whole lot easier.
