How Ross Abelow is Helping Keep Stray Animals off the Streets

Many homeless and stray animals roam on the streets. They pose a high risk to the general public because some of them are predatory. In order to prevent conflict between the strays and the human population, it is important to accommodate them in animal shelters. In addition, their presence on the streets especially during the cold weather is harmful to their health. The animals ought to be taken care of to safeguard their wellbeing, more so during adverse weather conditions.

Currently, there is a bulging number of distressed and vulnerable animals. The available shelters do not have the capacity to adequately hold the huge number of waifs. Funds raised from the campaign will therefore go a long way in alleviating suffering among the animals.

The campaign is Mr. Abelow’s way of serving the community by marshaling fellow animal lovers to help meet the needs of the beasts. This will avert their deaths by protecting them from the vagrancies of winter. Additional information about the cause can be found on Mr. Abelow’s GoFundMe campaign site.

Madison Street Capital Advises Clients on Mergers and Acquisitions

Mergers and acquisition (M&A) according to Bloomberg Business refers to the process of one company financially controlling another company. If the two companies are somewhat the same in size, they may be said to have merged. If a larger company goes for a smaller one, it is said to have acquired or bought out the smaller one.
According to their video on YouTube, Madison Street Capital advises clients on both the buy side and sell side of M&A transactions.

A company should not buy out another unless they have a good business reason for doing so. In many cases these days, the purpose is to gain control over some technology or business asset the other company owns. In many cases it’s cheaper to buy the company than to develop it independently, reinveing the wheel. Large high tech companies such as Microsoft and Google have all used their accumulated profits to buy out small start-up companies with some service that has proven highly popular in the marketplace.

In many cases, the owner of the smaller company has been hoping for that outcome. They are happy to receive many millions of dollars from the corporate giant, and to walk away wealthy and free of the responsibility for running the company.

In other cases, it may not work. There’s the story of Mark Zuckerberg attending a meeting in the early days of Facebook when a large tech giant wanted to buy him out. He told them he obviously didn’t want to sell, so they wouldn’t need to talk for more than five minutes.

The key is in the video where it says managers are seeking to strategically enhance the organization values. Whether one company is buying another out, or they both bring important and useful business assets to the table and therefore decide to merge, the end result must be a business that makes more money.

People must be able to work with each other. The leaders of each company must have similar visions and be willing to work together, or for one to leave. The organization must be better able to grow and meet its goals because of the deal.

Madison Street Capital is an investment firm specializing in advising small and mid-level firms on their financial needs. Their headquarters is in Chicago, but they have offices in Africa and Asia as well. Madison Street Capital help clients who need financing.

They may need help with capital restructuring to attract new investment capital. Or they may need to have their asset valued for purposes of analyzing their financial needs.

The company is also known for being the top civil and criminal justice solution for public safety.

Mr. Smith understood the difficulties that people like us go through just to be able to spend a short amount of time with the ones we love.

QNET Helps Women to Balance Work and Home Life

All societies expect women to maintain their home and to take care of their children. However, today’s women are not just being defined by traditional roles. Instead, many females have opted to both. They work full or part time jobs and they make time to help their children during the evening hours and on the weekend. This approach to family life is nothing new but it has increasingly become more common. As a matter of fact, most families need two incomes just stay afloat. 

Women known that they have to be careful about how they balance their duties at home and their careers. They want to be good moms, loving wives and dependable employees. Today’s women are independent but they also strongly value their family relationships. 

One way that women have overcome this problem is by starting up their own business enterprises. When a female operates her own business she is able to set her own schedule and to take direct responsibility for her life and its outcome. She will be the manager of her operation and the results that she gets out of her business will be her own. Women like the challenge, freedom and a chance to shine.

Innovations Occurring In The Pet Food Industry


The dog food industry is changing and the Daily Herald is filling consumers in with a new article about the changes that are being made. The article made it clear how big of an industry the pet food market actually is. It is currently valued at 23.7 billion dollars. In the last few years, half of that revenue has been created by the premium pet food industry. Since 2009, the premium market has grown 45 percent and it is only speeding up. Manufacturers are now pushing for consumers to feed their dogs food that could be mistaken for human food. The food is organic and grain free and preservative free. The list of different types of food is endless. There are dog foods for losing weight. There are dog foods for aging dogs.

Many small dog food companies have started to enter the market with their own unique spin on a healthy pet food. Sometimes the smaller companies make it and succeed quickly. Other times they are bought up by one the larger companies who can then stick their name on the trendy product. One major concern with premium food is whether it can create the type of profits it needs to with such expensive ingredients.

Beneful is one such company that is catching up with the trends. The article went on to describe several projects that Purina, Beneful’s parent company, is working on in the dog food arena. In particular, Beneful has decided to add safe food coloring to its food. On the website they even state that they know that dogs are color blind but that human buy the food and they believe humans want to see attractive looking food in and around their homes.

Beneful has a wide variety of products available. They sell wet dog food, dry dog food and dog treats. Consumers can expect to find blends that include chicken, tomato, carrot and wild rice or beef, carrots, barley and peas, among many others. The food is all held to the highest quality and freshness standard.



Dr. Sergio Cortes Says Zika Virus Becomes A Vexing Problem for WHO

Dr. Sergio Cortes has been educating people about the Zika virus on his official blog at, and he says despite optimistic reports, there are plenty of reasons for concern. According to Dr. Cortes official news blog, the Zika virus causes fetal cranial deformities, and several cases have been reported in Brazil. In fact, the Ministry of Health reports there have been 462 cases of the so-called microcephaly, and 3852 more are suspected. Brazil’s head of state, Dilma Rousseff deployed around 220,000 military and health authorities to visit homes and distribute leaflets about the Zika virus. Authorities have also distributed insecticides into sewage pipes to prevent the breeding of mosquitoes.

What Makes The Zika Virus So Risky?

The WHO (World Health Organization) say don’t panic, but the initial concern is that people who become infected with Zika, do even notice any symptoms. For some, there is a slight fever, rash and red eyes, but on average, only about one of four infected develop symptoms. Second, there is a particular risk to pregnant women. Dr. Sergio Cortes points out on that the Zika virus has not officially been ruled a cause for microcephaly, yet Brazil’s local Health Ministry says around 4,000 suspected cases were linked to the virus in 2015.

The virus has been underestimated for years, and big pharma companies are currently on the hunt for a vaccine, along with the WHO (World Health Organization) is currently working in collaboration for a potential cure, but analysts say it could take 18 months or more.

As a leading medical expert in Brazil, Dr. Sergio Cortes established an official blog for access to anyone wanting to learn more about the Zika virus. “Mosquitoes have become a flying needle, ready to infect millions, and the leading defense against Zika is keeping updated about the virus” says Dr. Cortes.

Meanwhile, confirmed cases have been reported from more than 30 countries, including a few dozen in the United States. With the epidemic spreading rapidly, scientists say Zika could infect millions more. The newest concern is how this virus will affect Brazil’s Olympic summer games. The International Olympic Committee (IOC) representatives say Zika “is absolutely not an issue,” and Dr. Sergio Cortes believes there certainly will be fewer cases since Brazil is drier during August, yet that doesn’t entirely rid Brazil of the bloodsuckers.

If you’re looking for updated information about the Zika virus, stay informed by visting Dr. Sergio Cortes Facebook or Twitter page.
