There is not a single place in the world that will be left out as the company moves on with its expansion work.

Acquisitions

OSI Food Solutions has expanded its operations in Europe through acquisitions of two key businesses in Netherlands and UK. The company started its acquisition with the Baho Food. The Dutch food company will help OSI Food Solutions to expand its business operations in Europe. The deal between these two is likely to bring better results for OSI since it will benefit from the high number of people who consume processed foods in this region. Baho Food has 14 affiliates in the region who will help in making the market better for OSI.

The other acquisition that the company has made is that of Flagship Europe, which has since been renamed Creative Foods. This deal will likely make the business to do well in the United Kingdom. The deal will not only help OSI but Creative Foods as well.

With the kind of deals that OSI Food Solutions is making in Europe, it is clear they have a plan of a total takeover in this region. They have their goals aimed at controlling the market through acquisitions which will give them a quick entry into the market.

Neurocore: The Use Of Neurotherapy To Treat Depression

It is amazing how our brains work. Apart from being resilient as well as adaptable in nature, they also control our thoughts, emotions, perceptions and behaviors. As studies are going into understanding the organ more, there are many mental conditions such as depression which Neurocore Brain Performance Centers has endeavored to treat.

Clinical depression is the most severe kind of depression. According to National Institute of Mental Health, it affected about 10.3M Americans in 2016 alone. The cause has not been fully established. Brain chemistry, genetics as well as hormones can contribute to the condition.

Antidepressants and psychotherapy have been used and are still being used to treat depression. However, doctors as well as researchers have come up with Neurotherapy. Using EEG diagnosis, the treatment has been used for almost a decade. In 1936, Fredrick Lemere was the first person to link EEG to depression. After Fredrick Lemere compared EEG of healthy people to several psychiatric patients, he concluded that the ability to produce ‘good’ alpha waves can somehow be linked to the affective capacity of the person. Today, increased alpha activity has been considered the best indicators of depression.

Fredrick Lemere’s results have greatly been utilized by medical professionals and scientists at Neurocore to provide a Medication-Free Depression Treatment Program by the use of neurofeedback. Neurocore patients train their brains to overcome depression and its symptoms using neurofeedback. The treatment begins with a comprehensive assessment using qEEG technology, Achenbach System of Empirically Based Assessment (ASEBA) among other diagnostic techniques to produce a comprehensive report on the patient’s symptoms.

292 clients underwent Neurocore’s session program. 84% of the clients experienced a significant decrease in the symptoms of depression while 54% did not meet symptomatic thresholds for the condition.

Matt Badiali – An Expert Adviser In Resource Investment

Matt Badiali – an Expert Adviser in Resource Investment

Matt Badiali is a scientist and an Investments adviser who holds a B.S in earth sciences from the Penn State University and Masters of Science in Geology from the Florida Atlantic University.After spending five years working on his PhD, he hooked up with his friend who had PhD in finance in order to create ways of investments. His experience on science and geology played a key role to his investments advice.

Investing in Platinum

In one of his article Matt Badiali states that the metal Platinum will soon be a sought after metal with great value. He argues that the price of platinum has been low since the year 2004 and this is unrealistic because the supply of this metal is very low and its demand high which should in turn make it more valuable and expensive. In his statement, Matt Badiali argues that In the first three months of 2018, according to the World Platinum Investment Council, the demand for platinum exceeded supply by about 125,000 ounces. This could be attributed to the South Africa’s mines, which produce most of the platinum in the world that hit its lowest point since 2016.However, according to the revision done by the council, It is now expected that platinum demand will rise on global economic growth, particularly in China.

He also argues that platinum is ready to make a great attraction in the mining sector being a key player in petroleum industry. Although its supply from South Africa is gradually going down and is still cheap right now it is expected to change in future thus a good area to invest in.

Overview

Having a father who had struggled with successful investing,Matt Badiali realized the importance of blending his knowledge and experience in order to help people. He has always been determined to help investors find the best investments opportunities in natural resources,metals and energy.

Efforts to eradicate blindness in impoverished regions by Sightsavers.

Sightsavers is a non-profit organization founded on 5th January 1950 by Sir John Wilson. Its headquarter regions are in the European Unions.

Sightsavers is a charity organization that aims at preventing avoidable blindness, treating it as well as empowering individuals with visual impairment and other disabilities in poorest regions of the world. This organization is under the leadership of Caroline Harper the chief executive officer.

Blindness is majorly caused by bacterial infection leading to trachoma. In reality, fighting trachoma cannot be done by one entity only; that is why all the entities- governments, UN, NGO- are supposed to work together.

The government of United Kingdom announced it will give a donation of 20 million euros; this funding was intended to aid in the fight against blindness through providing sight-saving drugs (such as antibiotics to eradicate blinding infection) as well as surgical interventions in 10 poor developing countries found in the commonwealth.

It is worth noting that trachoma is among the prevalent diseases in these regions majorly caused by inadequate sanitation, lack of clean water, an infestation of flies and other insects. The disease is transferred through human contact and flying insects.

As a result of close proximity among these impoverished individuals, trachoma which begins as a bacterial infection (that is easy to treat in early stage)spreads quickly. Consequently, lack of treatment for this infection results in scarring of eyelids -which is very painful- as well as inward turning of an eye when the infected person blinks.

“What is river blindness?” River blindness is a parasitic infection that can, over time, cause irreversible blindness. The disease is spread by the bite of infected black flies that breed near fast-flowing rivers. 120 million people are at risk worldwide. River blindness can lead to severe skin irritation, pain and sight loss. 500,000 people are blind because of it. 37 million are infected by the disease. Medication can stop it spreading. Fly catchers work to eradicate the flies that carry river blindness. Together, we can eliminate the disease.

A post shared by Sightsavers (@sightsavers) on 

However, when detected in its early stages trachoma could be treated using antibiotics. In severe cases, surgical procedure could prevent blindness caused by trachoma.

Trachoma is part of the Neglected Tropical Diseases alongside leprosy and sleeping sickness.

The British Government which had earlier on infused 20 million euros donated another 360 million euros. It understood the need to suppress these diseases before they become hard to confront in the near future. Their effects range from death, physical impairment and life-long disabilities.

Although everyone is at the risk of getting trachoma, women and the children are the most affected. The benefits of pooling resources and working together to eradicate Trachoma is best illustrated by Malawai. 4 years ago almost 8 million individuals were at the risk of losing sight according to researchers. Hopefully, their collaborated efforts have seen this figure reduce significantly.

Sightsavers has helped change the lives of many individuals significantly using their team of volunteers and professionals even in civil war countries. Therefore they facilitate the attainment of sustainable development goals set aside by the United Nation because of their belief 75 % of sight loss can be prevented and treated.

Shervin Pishevar Said All This In February – Why Didn’t You Listen?

Shervin Pishevar is a popular businessperson and investor who is known for things like the founding of investment management firm Investment company , being an advisor of and investor in taxi replacement tech business Uber, and co-founding Hyperloop One – now known as Virgin Hyperloop One.

Mr. Pishevar has been active in the fields of business and investing since 1997 – 2018 marks his 21st anniversary spent across the two sectors – just years after he emigrated from Iran into the United States. Thus far, Shervin Pishevar’s bright mind has effectively guided him to success in all of his endeavors.

He isn’t just good at doing business – he’s also quite the intellectual.

In December 2017, Shervin Pishevar decided to take a break from his various business, investing, and philanthropic endeavors for an indefinite period of time. Slightly more than two months later, Mr. Pishevar made his return to the world of business via Twitter.

He didn’t just announce that he’d be returning to doing business as usual; he let go of 50 consecutive tweets in less than 24 hours that discussed everything from the future price of cryptocurrencies, how much better China was at building massive feats of infrastructure than the United States, and that some tech companies in Silicon Valley were far too large and had too much of a competitive advantage.

Here are just a few main ideas from a select handful of tweets from Mr. Shervin Pishevar’s infamous tweetstorm.

New business growth isn’t likely to happen in the next decade

Pishevar made clear his belief that startups would likely not reach the size of Airbnb or Uber unless the five largest tech companies – Facebook, Microsoft, Alphabet, Apple, and Amazon – were purposely cut into pieces by the United States government.

The economy will be better with digital currency

Currently – and for many years – currencies have been issued and controlled by central governments like the United States Federal Reserve Bank. Shervin Pishevar tweeted his belief that because digital currencies aren’t related to governments, a major power shift in terms of who has the most money and control will change over the next few decades.
