When increasing your diversity concerning your stocks portfolio many options look very appealing. However, as any astute investor knows, one must be ever vigilant when if comes to where to trust your hard earned money. Initial public offerings can be an exciting lure, so it is wise to pay close attention to any IPO prospectus you may find. The key idea is to always think long term when investing in an IPO.
It is always a good idea to try and determine why a company is offering shares in the first place. Some initial offerings are made by young companies looking to increase their available capital quickly. Will this be for future growth or immediate gain? This is the type of question that is wise to find an answer to. Look for startups that have an eye toward the long run, and are avoiding any type of get rich quick idealism.
Some older companies may be looking to become publicly traded for a variety of reasons. Do the research necessary to determine why. Is it a plan to enrich major shareholders at the risk to minor ones? Is the company in financial straits and seeking impetus to quick growth? Will the sale of common shares be a boon or a bust to the established firm? These are difficult questions to find answers for, but should surely be sought.
All stock ventures can be risky, this much is obviously true. But how can you minimize that obvious risk? There are some ways that remain valid in all economies. First of all, only trade with stocks for products that you yourself endorse. Having trust in a company not only provides one with a sense of security, but will also increase the attention you pay to it, providing opportunities for more informed decision making tasks.
Look to peers and advisors for solid advice. Seek out others who have gone before, or that are already invested in the concerns that are interesting to you. Friends and colleagues are often invaluable for information based on prior experiences. Be location aware, if you live or have experience with Canada for example, review an ipo from Canada.
Follow your hunches, if you can do so without too much risk. Many traders have made fortunes on instinct, and sometimes the best laid plans fall apart before they can even be implemented. If you are compelled by good feelings about certain prospects, indulge them as safely as possible, but learn to trust yourself.
Read trade journals incessantly in order to determine trends and fads, and to discern what is a lasting pattern as opposed to a flash in the pan. There is a wealth of information for the investor, some for a fee others for free, that can help guide you to safe practices all along the way. Investment experts abound in the market place and some should be sought with care. Research if of the utmost importance when placing your money on the line.

Dr Kelly Sennolz says, “Over 29% of the Arkansas population were considered obese in 2007 and continues to worsen.”
(1888PressRelease) Dr Kelly Sennholz says, “For an obese individual, the repercussions of obesity are more than meets the eye. Obesity impedes natural body processes, such as insulin production, production of new cells, and blood circulation.”
Fort Smith, Arkansas, According to the Arkansas Department of Health, over 600,000, or 29% of the population, were considered to be obese in 2007.
For an obese individual, the repercussions of obesity are more than meets the eye. Obesity impedes natural body processes, such as insulin production, production of new cells, and blood circulation. Obese patients have a higher chance of developing problems such as high cholesterol, high blood pressure, diabetes, and breathing problems. Many day-to-day activities may seem like a chore to the individual.
Dr. Kelly Sennholz, Chief Medical Officer of Symtrimics, comments on why more people today belong to gyms, to weight loss programs, spend millions on diet drugs, over the counter supplements and diet food than ever in history while obesity is exponentially increasing in the United States. Despite all the efforts and the money wasted in order to achieve the healthy weight, obesity still continues to rise.
Here are the easy facts:
• It is estimated by our Government that 1 in 3 children born today will have diabetes.
• Over 2/3 of Americans are overweight.
• 1/3 of Americans are obese.
• 98% of all weight management programs fail.
For years, several programs have made an attempt to help alleviate this disease with very little success. Never before has there been a program available that involves a sophisticated integration of Science, Psychology, Nutrition and Education.
After several years and millions of dollars invested in extensive research and development, Dr. Kelly Sennholz proudly introduces the Symtrimics Wellness Program to Fort Smith, Arkansas and is available through three area Physicians and one Doctor of Nursing Practice:
Tim Wood, DO – Eastside OB/GYN, 7001 Rogers Avenue, Fort Smith
Casey Laws, DO – Eastside OB/GYN, 7001 Rogers Avenue, Fort Smith
Norma Basinger, MD – Eastside GYN, 2713 South 74th Street, Fort Smith
Amy Plunket, DNP, APN – Eastside GYN, 2713 South 74th Street, Fort Smith
Dr. Kelly Sennholz comments on the drawbacks of many other weight loss systems based on results of research about what does and what does not work regarding human behavior in the wellness arena. “Previous weight loss systems have only incorporated a few factors but have failed to encapsulate them in an integrated system that doctors and patients have desired.”
The three Symtrimics Programs fulfill the needed bridge between our current medical system and the wellness medicine demanded and needed by over 80% of Americans.
By integrating nutrition, exercise and social behaviors into one sophisticated system, Symtrimics defies conventional thinking by empowering physicians and their patients to control the future of their health. Finally, there is a solution for millions of Americans who demand an effective way to lose and manage their weight and their overall health. Symtrimics sets the bar for current and future weight loss / management and wellness programs.

The managers should possess excellent professional and individual skills no one can deny. However, what these skills are and how they work in real-life workplace environments is still a matter of hot debate. Professionals and scholars in organizational studies describe and evaluate the benefits and drawbacks of different management styles and their applicability in different organizational contexts, which implies that there is no perfect managerial style and any manager can become a successful CEO. At the same time, there is a wealth of literature on the topic of managerial skills. It appears that a good manager would be able to comprise and utilize the five different mind-sets, to create a well-integrated picture of organizational environment and to use it for the sake of achieving the major organizational objectives.
Generally, management is about the four basic functions: planning, organizing, leading, and controlling (Bateman & Snell, 2004). Planning involves a logical procedure of thinking about the goals and possible pathways for achieving them; organizing implies the need for a manager to structure the staff and resources in a way that would make them effective and lead to the desired goal; leading is associated with but is not limited to the manager’s ability to motivate and persuade followers; and controlling requires that managers evaluate how plans are being implemented and to what outcomes they lead (Bateman & Snell, 2004). In this complex environment, a good manager is not simply expected to plan, organize, lead, and control, but to broaden the scope of the managerial activity and to use his managerial potential to the fullest. DuBrin (2008) writes that successful managerial skills actually comprise the five different mind-sets, which any successful manager must possess: reflective, analytical, worldly, collaboration, and active. In other words, a successful manager must be able to stop and reflect on their achievements and failures, to analyze the organizational environment, in which he (she) is bound to operate, to understand the contexts and culture in which decisions are to be taken, to manage relationships between people, and to make necessary changes (DuBrin, 2008). Although both managers discussed within the article are aimed to make changes and both seem to possess a good analytical mind, neither of them looks like an appropriate candidate for promotion; and there are several reasons for that.
Mr. Jager is obviously the man of action. “Mr. Jager’s supporters cite his turnaround of P&G’s troubled business in Japan. Mr. Jager is also known as the architect of P&G’s highly successful everyday low pricing strategy” (Stern, 1994). As a result, Mr. Jager is one of the few who possess skills necessary to analyze the contexts and environments, in which he works, and to take decisions that fit into these environments. However, Mr. Jager is not about human relationships, and the fact that he is ready to sacrifice his employees for the sake of the company’s profitability does not create an image of a consensual partner. With the lack of consensus, and with such rigid attitudes toward change, Mr. Jager may become the sword of Damocles in the company’s way to success. Everything is different with Mr. Pepper, who views Mr. Jager as the example of a harsh leadership style and adheres to the principles of generosity and personal attraction (Stern, 1994). He has broad practical experience in management and the one, who would choose management features other than toughness and fear (Stern, 1994). It is clear that Mr. Pepper devotes time to reflection and analysis but is too much concentrated on the need to maintain general agreement, which is virtually impossible. In his striving to lead and organize available resources, Mr. Pepper tends to forget that his strategies cannot satisfy everyone. He is collaborative and worldly, and even active, but not to the extent, which would make him a good CEO. In light of this information, and taking into account the company’s desire to preserve both employees, who successfully compensate for each other’s professional deficiencies, the company should choose the third person as its next leader.
A successful manager is expected to possess excellent skills necessary to plan, organize, lead, and control business. At the same time, a successful manager is expected to be reflective, analytical, worldly, collaborative, and active. In the discussed article, the two managers represent the two ultimate forms of managerial style, and neither of them can become a good candidate for a promotion. At the same time, where the company seeks to preserve both employees, and taking into account that both successfully compensate for each other’s professional deficiencies, a third person should become the company’s next leader.
Every year millions of dollars are lost to home invasions by burglars or con artists. The growing menace of con men posing as window cleaners and what you can do to ensure your safety are important considerations. This is particularly true to the elderly who experienced a spate of hoaxes from con artists knocking on doors pretending to clean windows.
Deception theft cases are increasing in the UK as well. Elderly victims often found it hard to approach the police and report their ordeals. In the UK some 16,000 deception theft cases were reported in 1998.
Policemen however think that the actual number could be around five times the reported cases because elderly people are fearful for their lives and choose to remain silent. Another reason cited is they do not want their kids to worry and move them to assisted living or home cares.
A number of incidents involve situations where callers used all kinds of excuses just to be able to enter the home and loot the place. When faced with this situation, the most plausible thing to do in cases like this, is to ask for an official ID from the caller before letting him in. If they cannot produce an identification card then call the police so you can have his identity verified.
When confronted with cases like this, you should remain alert and keep your wits about you. If the person insists or tries to persuade you some more, you should listen to what your instincts are telling you. If you smell something fishy about the whole thing, then most likely the callers are fake cleaners. Never open the door immediately and let the strangers in. You should confirm their identity first by calling the window cleaning company they work for before letting them inside your property.
Your door must have a peephole so you can tell who is behind the door. Installing a door chain might not be an effective solution since thieves can easily break it. Refrain from hiding keys outside the door like in a plant box. Thieves can spot the keys easily. You cannot allow them to walk conveniently through your door. These steps could help you avoid the growing menace of con men posing as window cleaners and what you can do to ensure your safety.

In the year 1831, in Rhode Island, Jabez Gorham founded the Gorham Silver Company which is one of the supreme producers of sterling silver and silver plate in America. While working for the company in the year 1895, the well known designer, William C. Codman developed one of the famous silver patterns known as Chantilly. This pattern has remained one of the best known patterns even today.
The luster of this company’s silverware has caught the sight of even the White House administrations and has been asked for by Mary Todd Lincoln and Mrs. Ulysses S. Grant. On the special occasion of the 100th anniversary of the United States the company had proudly designed a sterling silver vase for Mrs. Grant. This silver vase contained more than 2,000 oz. of silver and was kept at the center of the display at the Philadelphia Centennial Exhibit. The vase was had a height of 50 inches and a length of 62 inches. The design illustrated many scenes of the history of America on the face of it. It was displayed, in Paris and Chicago, but was eventually destroyed.
In their designs of silverware the company was prolific and a new pattern was created every few years. Gorham Silver stood distinctly apart when compared to all other silver makers in England. All over Europe Gorham turned out to be most recoginized for their flamboyant patterns and remarkable engraved details depicted in their dyes.
At the time of second World, weapons and other armaments were manufactured by the company to meet the demands of war. Actually, Gorham manufactured an array of shell casting for the Army and Navy.
One of the most known and most famous collections is that of the late Henry Jewett Furber. This collection contains 606 pieces of tableware and 132 pieces of hollowware. The company bought back the collection in 1949 at which time it was estimated to be valued at $1 million dollars. In today’s market that would be worth far more. Today the collection belongs to the RISD Museum after being donated by Gorham Silver.
The George Washington monument located in the heart of capitol is one of the most prominent monuments the company has ever designed. While looking at the Museum of Natural History you will come across the statue of Theodore Roosevelt in New York, another milestone of company`s craftsmanship. And a classic example of company`s creation is the statue of the “Independent Man” found in the state house of Rhode Island.
In recent years, the family of George W. Bush had the company provide the flatware service that would be used on Air Force One and the pattern chosen was Chantilly. Amongst its other noted American achievements, the company designed the magnificent trophies for two sporting events; the Indianapolis 500 trophy and the Borg-Warner Trophy.
In the most recent times the company has feathered out into the production of dinnerware. Their Chinese patterns are versatile and of highest quality even though they are delicate. The impressive designs and the quality products made the company stand out amongst the companies manufacturing quality dinnerware.
