Retain Your Employees

If you own a business, you know the importance of retaining your current employees. Not only is retraining new employees time consuming, but it zaps company productivity while costing you more money as well. Every single time an employee leaves, you are forced to do this time and time again. However, what if there is a way to prevent employees from leaving? While there are few barriers you can put in the way of a worker leaving of their own accord, not to mention looking for employment with better pay and benefits, there is another way to help retain employees. With the help of improved employee job satisfaction. If employees like their work and are satisfied with what they do, they are more likely to remain inside of the office. But how can you go about doing this? Darius Fisher, the head and cofounder of Status Labs offers up a few suggestions.

As someone who has helped raise a company from the ground up, Darius Fisher understands the importance of having employees on staff who are happy and want to work for you. Once you start to mistreat employees or give them a reason to look elsewhere, they will look elsewhere. By maintaining a major company, Darius Fisher has a better understanding of this.

Benefits and Services

This is a rather simple offering. First, you need to give regular and desirable raises. Typically, an employee leaves a company to a new business because they receive a 10 to 20 percent bump in salary. You need to offer pay increases and stick to these pay increases. Additionally, offer some fun services throughout the work week and year to improve morale as well. This can include you covering lunch on Fridays, scheduling some outings with the workers and recognize birthdays of employees. If at all possible, you might want to think of offering a pet friendly environment as well. Darius Fisher allows pets into his own office to improve morale. Follow Darius on Twitter to keep up with news and events.

Acknowledge Accomplishments

When a worker reaches a desirable accomplishment, make sure to recognize them. Whether it is working with the company 10 years, making a big sale or working overtime, it is nice to be recognized. This also can help promote other individuals to want to do the same thing.

Dr. Cortes And The Difference In Mosquito Transmitted Viruses

Dr. Sergio Cortes is the secretary of health for Brazil and he has written many informative articles about the different viruses that have been plaguing Brazil in the recent months. Dr. Cortes has his official site that is called and on this website he gives information about how to differentiate between Zika, Dengue, and Chikungunya. It is possible to follow Dr. Cortes on LinkedIn, Facebook, and Twitter.
There are many things that these three diseases have in common and these things include high fever and body aches. It has been discovered that the same mosquito which is called the Aedes Aegypti can transfer Chikungunya, Dengue, and Zika to the individuals that it bites. While there are many things that these diseases have in common, it is important to point out the things that separate these diseases as well. When it comes to Dengue, the symptoms that differentiate it from the other diseases are deep muscle pain and pain behind the eyes. When it comes to the Zika virus, it generally causes itching and redness of the eyes. Pains in the joints that are associated with Chikungunya are very intense, and they are very distinct with that virus. There have also been studies that have proven that microcephaly can be associated with the Zika virus.

Some forms of Dengue can cause bleeding from the cavities of the body. If these symptoms do occur, Dr. Cortes stresses on the importance of seeking medical attention quickly. There is no known antiviral medication to prevent any of these diseases and treatment for the diseases are currently being studied. For now, if a person is infected with either one of the diseases, it is very important for them to get a lot of hydration by mouth or intravenously if necessary at any health facility. Apart from hydration, it is important to rest for at least five days to get physical strength again.

Scientists are hopeful that there will be a drug that will be approved that can successfully treat Dengue. The vaccine that they have tested is 80% effective in fighting four different types of Dengue. 17,000 volunteers will be scheduled to receive the first dose of the drug. While there is no cure at the present moment for any of these diseases, prevention is the best thing to possibly be done.

What George Soros Thinks Of The Current Global Economy

Everyone on Bloomberg  knows George Soros. After surviving Nazi occupied Budapest in World War II, he fled Hungary in 1947 for England. With graduation from the London School of Economics, Soros came to the United States, and has made waves in the economic and political worlds.
His latest wave in the economic world concerns what the global economy is doing. The global market, Soros notes, is starting to show signs of another recession – like the one in 2008, or one that’s worse.

The first thing that is causing him to question where the global market is going is China’s yuan. The yuan’s value has taken a large nose dive in the first month or so of 2016. This drop has caused almost $2.5 trillion to be wiped from the equities in Asia. Further more, the issues with adjustments that the yuan faces are causing the Chinese equities market to plummet. Thursday January 7, 2016, Chinese trade markets halted half way through the day and did not resume at all.

Also causing the global economy to sag quite a bit this year is the situation with Ukraine and Russia. According to George Soros, when Greece’s economy began to collapse, Ukraine was tossed aside like chopped liver. This is not good for the world economy. He goes on to argue that, while President Vladimir Putin is not honoring his agreements to cease-fire with Ukraine, he is getting closer to being able to altogether abandon them.

If Ukraine is not treated right, the entire situation could turn into another Greece situation. Greece was given loans to boost its economy a while ago, but the loans came with staggering interest rates. Those rates crushed the economy further instead of helping it. Soros suggests making Ukraine a priority. They’re working to overhaul the old political regime.

However, with Russia beating on their doors, it’s difficult to get anything done. The Minsk II agreement – signed in February of 2015 – has pretty much empowered the allies of Russia who are rebelling against the political overturn. While Ukraine cannot take on Russia’s military in a military confrontation, they are determined to protect the European Union from Russian grievances.

If Soros’ predictions come true, the European Union is in for some hard times.

States Sec. of Health Dr. Sergio Cortes explains on Linked In that close to 4000 childbirths of children with Microcephaly has occurred since October of last year. Microcephaly has been closely linked to the Zika Virus. The problem is that 80% of patients did not ever show symptoms but when a woman is written by mosquito that is transmitting the Zike virus that she may very possibly pass the virus on to her unborn child. Microcephaly debilitating disease that involves underdevelopment of the head and brain.

You can also meet people all across the world, which is a wonderful way to learn about other cultures.  This lets people know that the people they are talking to are real, and it gives people something to talk about when they first meet through Skout. In a recent article by SAT PR News, a survey from Skout is talked about in detail. In the survey, users discuss their New Year’s resolution, and the results are quite uplifting. People feel like going on blind dates more, apparently. This is chosen in contrast to the idea of open relationships.

Another interesting aspect of the survey discusses the helpfulness of having a circle of friends to motivate someone into making wise life decisions. Apparently, friends are a huge indicator of the emotional health of an individual. Someone with a group of friends to support their decisions is more likely to make healthier choices. This is interesting when you consider all of the people who make New Year’s resolutions that involve dieting or eating right. Healthy lifestyles are much easier to maintain when you have a supportive group of people who really care about your well being.

Setting up a profile on Skout takes a matter of minutes to do, but if you put some thought into what you write, then you will have a higher chance of finding people who understand who you really are. Take a moment to read the article I was referring to from SAT PR News, here:

Sales Of Dog Food Takes A Healthy Direction

Pet parents are seldom satisfied with feeding their furry loved ones food that does not have top marks in nutrition. Over time, as dog food has failed to provide the correct amount of nutrition, pet parents have often taken it upon themselves to ensure that their dogs get fresh meals. If that means preparing the meals themselves, pet parents have done that as well. While people who have a light work schedule or stay at home can afford to prepare meals for their dogs, what about those who have a stressful work situation? The new wave of healthy dog food is here to provide relief to all such pet parents. Brands like Beneful from Nestle Purina not only promise healthy and nutritious dog food, but they also have the option of customizable meals for dogs. These meals are available in amazing flavors like chicken, lamb, beef, fish, et al. Apart from being brimming with everything that is essential to a healthy dog, Purina has one thing that separates it from other brands – a love for dogs. So, instead of making meals that the pet parents would find appetizing, this brand focuses all its energies on catering to the requirements of dogs. Since dogs “taste” the meals with their sense of smell, Purina Beneful smell delicious and taste even better. Picky eater dogs and their worried parents also have other brands to their rescue. Freshpet Inc. is living up to the company name and providing the freshest offerings straight from the factory to the bowl of dogs. These fresh meals are refrigerated to retain taste, nutrients, and scent. This refrigerated dog food ensures that nothing is lost from the meals. Everyone knows that dogs love human foods like Lasagna and Beef Stroganoff. However, Cesar Home Delights is the only brand that has thought of transforming this love into actual dog meals that would transport dogs away from the dinner table and get them interested in their own food bowls. However, Beneful is the first choice for those who want easy availability, trust and reliability, great taste, and affordability from their dog food. The reputation of this brand precedes itself.
