More Than A Billion People In 149 Countries Suffer from Tropical Diseases And Brazil Is Doing Its Part To Eradicate Those Diseases According To Medical Advisor Sergio Cortes

March 24th, 2016

The fact that mosquito-borne viruses can infect people in parts of the world that are not considered tropical or subtropical became obvious when the Zika virus started to spread to countries that are not considered tropical. Billions of people in 149 countries live in fear because of the tropical diseases that seem to be increasing rather than being eradicated, according to one of Brazil’s medical advisors, Dr. Sergio Cortes. Dr. Cortes is very familiar with the damage caused by tropical diseases. Dr. Cortes has done an extensive amount of medical work in the North and Northeastern regions of Brazil. Even though Dr. Cortes specializes in orthopedic work he has an extensive background in mosquito-borne diseases. Dr. Cortes was the Director of the State Ministry of Health in Rio for seven years.

In 2013, Extre.Globo.com published an article about Dr. Cortes and the work he did during the Xerém, Duque de Caxias flood. The flood did a considerable amount of damage to Xerém, and the threat of a dengue outbreak was on the minds of medical professionals employed by the country’s Ministry of Health. Dr. Cortes and his medical team did an outstanding job educating survivors on the need for clean water, better sanitation removal, and a daily hygiene regime. Brazil sent troops to Xerém to spray mosquito breeding grounds, and between the spray and Dr. Cortes, a dengue epidemic was avoided.

In August 2015, the World Health Organization published a report on tropical disease prevention. That report was published right after Brazil experienced the first Zika virus infections. The WHO report lists the importance of sanitation, clean water and regular hygiene in preventing tropical disease outbreaks, according to a Dr. Cortes website post. Brazil’s Ministry of Health knows what has to be done to prevent tropical diseases, but implementing procedures is a challenge. Millions of people in Brazil don’t have access to clean drinking water.

A recent CrunchBase.com about Dr. Cortes and the work he does as the Chief Medical Officer and Executive Director of Rede D’Or São Luiz in Rio de Janeiro. The article also mentioned about Dr. Cortes and his work with the Ministry of Health. Dr. Cortes wants to help stop a future spread of Zika until a vaccine is developed. A Zika virus vaccine could be years away, according to a Dr. Cortes tweet. And mosquito eradication attempts won’t be as effective as they could be in certain regions of Brazil because of geographic issues.

March 8th, 2016

When Sanjay Shahs parents migrated from Kenya to London, they had one thing in mind; to give their children the best upbringing. They settled in London, and they chose one of the best places in the area to raise their son, Sanjay Shah. He went to school in London, and he joined university there too. He studied medicine in college, but he felt that he was not ready to become a doctor. He abandoned this career, settling for accounting.

Shah felt that he could do well in accounting, but this career did not last for a long time. He was employed in several banks in London. He would, however, have to travel for a long distance to get to the office, and this made him get tired before getting to work. The millionaire would also spend too much time in the office sitting, and he felt that he was wasting his productive years in a job that was not paying him as much as he deserved. During the 2008 financial crisis that affected the banking industry, Shah left his employment.

After abandoning his accounting career, Shah changed completely, and he chose to be self-employed. Staying in the office for long hours was not what he wanted for himself. He wanted to utilize all his potential, so he started his brokerage company. The first step was to rent a small room to act as his office.

Andy Wirth Shares His Thoughts About Olympic Valley Incorporation

March 1st, 2016

The Reno Gazette-Journal recently ran with a story about Andy Wirth and his fight against incorporation in California’s Olympic Valley. The article explains how Andy wants to save the Olympic Valley from economic tensions, and he is diametrically-opposed to those who want to overhaul the government in this beautiful region of the country. A change in government may not be necessary in the Olympic Valley, and Andy has a solution for the problems that face his home.

#1: Andy Is Opposed To Changing The Very Fabric Of The Community

Andy is opposed to changing the way that the community runs because of a need for bigger government, and his fear is that a larger government will begin charging taxes to people who cannot afford them. Andy is the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski, and his businesses will pay more in taxes every year to a unified government council. The people who live in the area will be forced to pay higher property taxes, and some citizens could be pushed out of the community.

#2: Andy Fears For Economic Development

Andy fears a lack of economic development if the new government is allowed to collect further taxes on every business. There are many small businesses in area that would be put out of operation with increases in taxes, and Andy wants to see a new solution that reduces taxes and increases services in the community. The weather and tourism troubles in the area require a new solution that does not involve tax hikes.

#3: Weather Troubles Impact The Tourism Industry

Poor weather over the past years has caused trouble for the tourism industry in the Olympic Valley, and Andy believes that the community must come together to solve their environmental problems. Andy is concerned that a lack of snow could cause more harm at every lodge in the area, and he does not want to see higher taxes make people feel even more burden than they do at the moment. Andy manages ski lodges that rely on tourists, and he believes that a compromise will bring more tourists to the area.

Andy Wirth’s opposition to incorporation in the Olympic Valley of California reflects his desire to save the community from a terrible transition. He admits that many years of bad weather have caused economic hardship, but he is afraid of a large government that will need taxes from the people to operate. Andy is in favor of a business plan that makes the Squaw Valley look attractive again, and he prefers to stop the battle over incorporation. Andy believes that more progress will occur when he and other business leaders come together to save the Olympic Valley and home of the 1960 Olympics.

Slyce Offers Spectacular New Apps For Visual Search Shopping

March 1st, 2016

Interesting News About Online Shopping

It’s interesting how many young people use online shopping to buy all of their clothes, shoes, makeup and other products. Younger generations enjoy the fact that it is convenient to do their shopping on their phone, and older generations enjoy this activity if they can operate their phones correctly. It’s becoming increasingly easier to use the applications on our smart phones, so older generations are joining the online shopping craze more and more as this technology gets easier to use. The applications that many shoppers are using today to look for new products are visual search tools.

If you haven’t heard of visual search tools, let me tell you that it is the most advanced and sophisticated method for finding virtually anything you want to buy online. There is nothing easier than taking a picture of something in order to search for it in an online store. The old way of searching for something by typing in a bunch of keywords is a way of the past that is left behind with dial up internet. Nobody has the time to type all that stuff anymore. According to this article I found from Live Mint, visual search companies are growing, and new visual search companies are popping up every day all over the planet.

The World’s Best Visual Search Application

After using several different image recognition apps, I have a favorite one that I prefer above the others: Slyce. Some of the other applications out there are awful. Slyce gives an accurate search every time I use their platform to look for something I want to purchase. I have taken pictures of objects in my environment. I took a picture of a friend’s hat the other day, and it is already being shipped to me. I have also used the app to take pictures of advertisements in magazines.

The apps that Slyce has to offer are really spectacular. My wife uses their app called Snip Snap. This app is a wonderful way to organize coupons. She doesn’t have to clip them out and carry them in her purse any longer. Slyce is always coming up with new ways to make our lives easier, and they are saving us money by offering us new promotions from the companies that we usually shop from online.
