Recent Events of Animal Activism

0

Posted on : 27-08-2015 | By : Nani | In : Canines

In recent years, the plight of animals in captivity that are subjected to lives filled with pain has become increasingly well-known. Sadly, animals are still being tortured and forced to live in horrible environments before dying brutal deaths, so that humans can ultimately derive some benefit. Although many people have spoken about those injustices, the problem is still going on. In addition, there have been both positive and negative animal activism events that have brought the issues of animals to the hearts and minds of people all over the world.

Keith Mann–From Prison to Politics in the Name of Animal Activism

Keith Mann is a British man who has long been been an advocate for animals, even though it seems that many of his methods did so in very negative ways. He spent eleven years in prison after an original sentence of fourteen years, as the result of being found guilty of conspiracy to set meat lorries on fire. He escaped from prison and was arrested again because he continued to work with animals while on the run. After his release from prison, he attempted and ultimately failed to stand for parliament with the Animal Protection Party in the May 2010 general election. He has also allegedly been an administrator for the Animal Liberation Front, which is an underground resistance group that is devoted to protecting the rights of animals.

Animal Rights–Controversial or Clear?

Although most people would probably be against the torture of chickens, they still buy meat and eggs at the grocery store that come from chickens that were forced into tiny spaces during their short lives. Many egg-laying hens have only a total of 67 square inches of space in which to spend her entire life.

Fortunately, animal activism has recently allowed that knowledge to become more commonly known. Specifically, it is now possible to buy eggs that were produced from free-range chickens that enjoyed more space and a higher quality of life. In addition, many of the eggs that are sold throughout the United States were produced in California. California now has laws in place that guarantee more space to laying hens.

The goal of animal activists has long been to protect the rights and existence of animals. They believe that even those animals that are raised for food or exist for medical testing should be treated with kindness and humanity…and it is hard to argue with that.

Living With Lower Back Pains

0

Posted on : 25-08-2015 | By : Nani | In : Pain Relief

If you suffer from lower back pain, you are certainly not alone. According to a tidbit offered up by the American Chiropractic Association, approximately 31 million American people suffer with low back pain. Lower back pain can range from slight to severe and can have little warning before the pain arrives.

Most back pain in the lumbar region of the spine is chronic. These chronic pains can be the result of bad posture, poor form, or a sports injury, among many other situations. Some conditions can be further aggravated by the moisture in the air or other variable climate conditions. Yelp reviews say though pain relief might seem like a lofty dream, there are treatment options available in the form of spinal clinics.

Spinal clinics are a growing category of medical specialist. These clinics focus solely on spinal health in individuals with back pain, both chronic or short term. Treatments in this type of facility generally range from physical therapies, like massage and exercise, to medical procedures, like spinal injections and surgeries. A great example of a successful spinal clinic model is North American Spine.

North American Spine is a spinal clinic located in Dallas, Texas. Their patient care model revolves around developing and using state of the art medical procedures and diagnostics while simultaneously working to save the patient money. North American Spine is the only spinal clinic to offer the AccuraScope Procedure. This procedure boasts an 82% Success Rate with over 90% of patients indicating they would suggest the procedure to someone suffering from back pain.

North American Spine is one of many excellent, patient oriented spinal clinics in the United States. With the broad availability of top technologies and equipment, people in even remote areas can find a spinal clinic close by where they can receive excellent care from leading medical professionals. Spine care is a difficult field to specialize in. The spine is the core of the human torso, helping protect the spinal cord. When the spine is damaged, the spine the begins damaging the nerves its designed to protect. Correcting these issues takes a caring and educated practitioner with the experience to know the best care for a given back injury.

Millions of Americans suffer from some type of lower back pain on a regular basis. Spinal clinics are developing new treatments and diagnostic tools each day. If you find yourself suffering from back pain, be sure to consult your physician as soon as possible on the best spinal care clinic in your area at which to seek treatment.

Lionel Messi Criticized by Human Rights Foundation

0

Posted on : 22-08-2015 | By : Nani | In : Across the Atlantic

Messi’s visit to Garbon was criticized by a Human Rights Foundation ESPN FC for it was seen as if he supported the president of Garbon who had been accused of fraudulent activities in elections and other human rights violations. His dressing mode at the time the president met him also came under harsh criticism from the opposition of the country. They specifically hit at the four time footballer of the year award winner for inappropriate dressing when he met their head of state. Other accusations leveled against him is that he had been paid a total of 2.5 million pounds for that visit.

According to the organization, Gorbon had been cited of having the most repressive regime and full of corruption in the whole world. The visit was seen to be in bad taste since despite the vast resources the country possesses, more than a third of its population still live below poverty line. Human Rights Foundation president Halvorssen said that Messi had undermined the credibility of his own charitable organization by providing PR services to the family of Bongo the president of Garbon. They also said that it was wrong that Messi visited Garbon as an ambassador of UNICEF.

Despite the fact that Messi has been claiming to support children rights and promotes education for the youth, he had endorsed a government that had totally refused to investigate the ritual killing of children in Garbon. HIs core reason for the visit was to lay a foundation stone at one of the venues where Africa cup of nations will be held but also ended up visiting a state – ran hospital and an inauguration party held at a restaurant that belongs to the family of the president.

Halvorssen said that the visit was part of a PR campaign by the government and Bongo’s family to promote the 2017 Africa cup of nation that will be hosted in Garbon at very huge expenses and not forgetting that The first family had embezzled funds and left more than 20% of the country’s population living in less than $2 daily.

The demand that the organization was fronting was that Messi to issue an apology and still not enough criticize Bongo’s regime of dictatorship and that he should have been more careful before visiting that state. Alex Gladstein the Chief Strategy Officer at HRF said that it was shocking that Messi and his own management team had dined with human rights abusers even after Jennifr Lopez, Kanye West and Mariah Carey had been humiliated.

It was also said that Messi instead of Messi dinning with oppressors he should give a statement that shows that he is in solidarity with the people of Garbon who have been persecuted and press that the government investigates the killing of the children.

James Phillips had long dreamed of riding bulls. Standing in the way of his dream was the fact that he suffers from cerebral palsy, a condition that affects his posture and his ability to maintain balance. However, he may soon be given the opportunity to fulfill his dream through the medical services of North American Spine. It was there that he underwent a procedure using AccuraScope, the latest innovation in spinal treatments.
Phillips is one of the more than 8,000 patients who have undergone the AccuraScope procedure at North American Spine, with the vast majority of patients claiming success in their treatment. In fact, eight out of 10 patients who have undergone the technique report having positive outcomes and more than 90 percent have recommended the procedure for others.
AccuraScope employs a laser and a tiny camera, both of which are enclosed in a tube that is then inserted into the base of the spine. In addition to causing less damage to surrounding tissue than intensive spinal treatment methods, AccuraScope is considerably more effective than other techniques that are minimally invasive. The treatment can normally be completed in less than an hour and on an outpatient basis, and without the use of general anesthesia. Only a small amount of stitching covered with a bandage will be needed after the procedure is completed, with no scarring and only limited discomfort. The patient may be able to return to his or her normal activities in a few days. Additionally, the AccuraScope technique is particularly cost-effective, saving patients an average of more than $23,000 over a period of five years in reduced medication and medical visits.
The AcuraScope procedure can be used on any portion of the spine, from the neck to the sacrum, and has proven its success in the treatment of a host of problems, including herniated disks, sciatica, spinal stenosis and even arthritis. Several North American Spine reviews agree that the simplicity of the technique makes it possible to treat multiple points with a single incision. It also reduces the chance of a recurrence of the original condition.
In addition to its use of the AccuraScope procedure, North American Spine recently made news for its donation of yoga pads for use by prekindergarten students at nearby Robert E. Lee Elementary School. North American Spine is truly devoted to promoting good health at any age level.

Anastasia Date Can Be Good Option For Online Dating

Posted on : 31-07-2015 | By : Nani | In : Online Dating, Russian Ladies

People in Russia date pretty much like the would in many parts of the world. Russia, however, has some rules of dating etiquette that might go against the norms of some countries.

In Russia, both males and females place a high degree of emphasis on chivalry. Not that men in other countries are uncouth brutes, it’s just that Russians are very serious about it, and it can either make or break a date. Russian men are big on romance and showering their date with flowers, candy and other types of gifts. Now granted, men in other countries may bring flowers on the first date, they likely won’t on the next one — and definitely not on future dates.

Roses and tulips are the flowers of choice and Russian women love them. Russian women also spend a lot of time preparing for a date. They will often get manicures, hairstyles and even go out and spend a lot of money on clothing all for the date. American women will prepare but not to that degree. They expect the man to open doors and pay for the dinner or movie and not much else.

When seeking out dates, a number of Russian men reach out to AnastasiaDate, which is one of the largest online dating service in world. This global company has over 3 million visitors per month and has the profiles of many Russian and Ukraine women. Many men claim to be looking for women to marry. Sometimes a love connection is made and sometimes not. All in all, most users are pleased with the results.

Anastasia date has been in business for about twenty years. The company was started by American-Russian couple David and Elena Besuden. The couple sold the company in 2011 and it now has three spin-off companies associated with it. AnastasiaDate offers a number of services on a sliding rate scale. They offer dating, web and video chat and instant messaging.

The company has also launched mobile platforms on iTunes, Apple and Google Play. The apps are a great way to connect with over 8,000 profiles.

Joseph Bismark: Corporate Spirituality

While looking at articles that dealt with spirituality and businesses, I have stumbled across this article on End of an Earring. This article goes into why Joseph Bismark is so successful as a businessman. A large part of it has to do with his spirituality and philanthropy. Joseph Bismark defines his business success as actually improving the lives of other people. He is not looking for ways to increase his income. His mind is not on the money. Instead, he is focused on making a positive impact in the lives of his clients as it relates to their physical health, mental health, emotional health and other aspects of their lives.

He has taken the business industry and has successfully implemented spiritual principles into this industry. I’ve learned from this article that I can’t expect to find any of the usual incessant self promotion from Joseph Bismark. Instead, he exercises principles such as honesty and humility. He understands and often emphasizes the value of these traits. Many people are rather reluctant to demonstrate these qualities. This is especially true of humility. Humility is not a very popular trait in business. However, Joseph Bismark has shown that it could work. As far as honesty, it is often stated that honesty is the best policy in business. 

Joseph Bismark also shows interest in the values of every person and being. As a matter of fact, he understands that they are very valuable and is willing to listen. This is not to say that he doesn’t agree with everyone. There are certain views and opinions that are not in line with his spirituality. This does not stop him from listening to others. He understands that one of the best ways to help someone in their growth is to listen to them. He definitely lives contrary to the usual culture of business.

Can Dividend Investing Pay Off?

0

Posted on : 15-07-2015 | By : Nani | In : Dividends, News

When it comes to investing in stocks, many people try to pick the next Apple. This tech giant is one of the biggest companies in the world, and it’s price increased from around $4 per share in the late 1990s to more than $120 as of July 2015. This run includes several splits, including one in 2014 that gave seven shares for every outstanding share that people held at that time. Few companies will be this successful over the long term. There are many more losers than winners when it comes to frequent trading and trying to peg a winner. This is where dividend investing can come in. The goal of dividend investment involves finding a stable company that pays a stable dividend and then buying shares and holding on to them for decades.

While Apple has started to pay out a dividend, it’s history as a dividend stock is quite short compared to a company like General Mills. The cereal icon has paid out a dividend consistently for more than 100 years. As of July 2015, it pays out a yield of around 3 percent on every share of stock. By reinvesting the dividends that a consistent stock pays out, an investor can gain more shares over time, which will then pay out more dividends. These increased dividends can then be put back into the stock and pay out even more. If the price of the stock goes down because of a market correction, but the company is still strong, this will increase the dividend yield and allow even more stock to be bought up.

Over time, this can really pay off. A popular example on the Internet shows that a person in 1980 could have bought $2,000 of Pepsi stock and reinvested the dividends automatically into more Pepsi shares. By 2004, with no additional investment, the individual who put in $2,000 would have Pepsi stock worth more than $150,000, and an initial position of around 80 shares would have become more than 2,800 shares. With Pepsi paying a yield of around 3 percent, this example would provide about $5,000 in income each year, and that amount would likely grow over time. Just about anyone over at Yolasite would argue that this is a great return on investment.

According to financial expert Igor Cornelsen, any old stocks that many people would consider boring are able to pay out dividend quarter after quarter at yields that are 3 or 4 percent each year. Their valuation tends to follow the market as a whole, which means that their price should appreciate over time. Those looking for an income stream in retirement can really benefit from the giants of the Dow and the S&P 500 as they can turn off the dividend reinvestment programs and opt to take cash when their companies pay out dividends.
