To Invest In Belize or Not?

Apr 29, 2015

(Newswire.com)

??Opening an international business venture or retiring to the tropical country – opportunities are endless here. The established government, a thriving tourism industry, easy access to North America, a good economy, and above all English as the official language, adds to its many advantages. Belize offers many investment opportunities such as:

•    Vacation home:  Belize is filled with cozy beaches, lush rainforest, islands, diverse cultures, the Mayan temples and many recreational activities. It is a great place to visit especially for those who enjoy the nature. There is so much to do here, that only one visit might not be enough to do all.

Demand for vacation homes has increased notably in the past years thus increasing real estate value. The cost of properties is reasonable and tourists can enjoy the paradise island with luxuries similar to home. There are many types of homes to choose from near within a preferred location. Investing in a property at Belize will prove very beneficial.

•    Retirement property: Retirement is the time to relax and enjoy the activities that were missed out on while working hard to support and make a good living.  Retiring in Belize is a great way to spend the remaining golden years. The affordable living as well as tax-free pensions will allows more money for exploring the paradise and enjoying the retirement days. Belize offers white sandy beaches, tropical rainforest and great flora and fauna which will be beneficial in any retreat. The international airport of Belize offers direct flight to many states of the USA making a trip to and from home easy and accessible.

•    New Home:  Belize is the only English-speaking country in Central America. Relocating to Belize will provide a chance to adopt a new lifestyle without having to learn a new language. Belize is a slow paced community with 15-30 minutes of commute as well as average 8 working hours per day – 5 days a week. The decreased working hours allows more free hours to spend time with the family or enjoy the adventurous sports of Belize.

While the tax rate of Belize is low, most Belizeans don’t pay income tax. The General Sales Tax (GST) on most items is only 12.5%. Property value is also low, unlike other developed countries. The property rates are even lower for those that choose to live outside the city limits. An average family (4 persons) can live on about BZ$ 3000/per month. (Note: US$ 1.00 = BZ$ 2.00)

•    Business opportunities: Belize is a developing country and holds many business opportunities.  The county lacks developed industries and its easy to initiate in any particular area, a thriving business. If investing in the already established industries is the plan, then tourism is the ideal choice. The tourism industry of Belize has many opportunities. The country has some of the best amenities such as restaurants, gift shops, tour companies, nature trails, diving shops and much more.

It is also a good time to make a mark in the Belize entertainment industry. The locals of Belize prefer to make long-standing business deals and investing in a new area will ensure long-term success.

Opening a small business venture with yourself working as the manager, janitor, or worker, or maybe opening a five-star resort, Belize has many opportunities waiting. Be aware that all businesses are obliged to pay a tax which depends on the type of business you are running.

For more information about business tax, contact the Belize Chamber of Commerce and Industry.

How can you invest in Belize?

Belize has five local banks as well as five international banks which aid in offshore banking to non-residents of Belize. The local banks are located throughout the country and the international banks work in accordance with the local banks that allows you to access your bank accounts from anywhere in the country.

Investing in Belize is a great way to make financial choices. Basic savings and demand deposit accounts should be readily available for anyone to keep track of their funds on their visit.

FourCubed Announces Investment from Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures

Apr 28, 2015

(Newswire.com)

???As the state of state-regulated gambling continues to change across the country, one industry partnership is shaping up to be a big winner. The iGaming Internet Marketing Company, FourCubed, secured a significant investment from Mille Lacs Corporate Ventures (MLCV), which has positioned FourCubed at the forefront of the emerging market of state-regulated online gaming.

MLCV is the business and investment arm of the Mille Lacs Band of Ojibwe. They’ve diversified from their Grand Casino properties  with a series of investments in economic development which include hospitality and marketing. With this minority investment in FourCubed, MLCV brings a great deal of knowledge that is marketing and industry focused to the partnership.

FourCubed specializes in iGaming affiliate marketing. Established in 2005, they’ve consistently had a large impact on the industry by enhancing affiliate partnerships in the U.S. gaming space as well as the European markets. Using their affiliate network and online marketing, as well as content marketing, social media, and search engine optimization (SEO), they’ve built an impressive portfolio of websites, all designed to help iGaming outlets acquire new players and then keep them for the long term.

Together, FourCubed will fuel its growth plan through marketing, partnerships through acquisitions in this highly fragmented space.

In 2015, FourCubed plans to focus efforts on product development for their two main brands, PAS.net – the largest iGaming Affiliate network in the industry and Your Poker Cash, the largest provider of “free bankrolls” in the industry. Plans to enhance their iGaming products and services by focusing their efforts on software and engineering and horizontal product development which includes continued expansions into casino, fantasy sports and sportsbook. In addition, the funds will also be allocated to new hires for personnel expansion, strategic acquisitions and increased marketing spends.

Over the next three years, FourCubed will continue to expand affiliate partnerships in both online formats and traditional gambling markets. As more states move toward regulating online gambling, the industry is expected to grow significantly, buoyed by both new players and those who were shut out due to 2011 regulatory issues.

Investing in FourCubed also provides a way for MLCV to leverage their relationships with other tribes across the country. As a casino operator, the investment allows MLCV to play a part in the marketing of online casino gaming, while FourCubed can further leverage their marketing skills to benefit casino operators and players alike. Additionally, MLCV’s chief executive officer, Joseph Nayquonabe, will join the FourCubed board of directors in May 2015.

FourCubed enables iGaming operators to connect publishers with offers and special promotions that drive player acquisitions. The company differentiates itself from other iGaming affiliate marketing and networks by providing publishers with additional tools and support that allows them to drive high volumes of traffic while successfully acquiring players. FourCubed drives significant player acquisitions for operators by utilizing PAS.net to centralize support, data and marketing tools for publishers including Your Poker Cash as a direct to player acquisition channel.

The Setting up of In-House Vestibular Autorotation Test Facility is Made Simple for Medical Practitioners

Apr 27, 2015

(Newswire.com)

Statistics reveal that ancillary sector receives around 21% of the total health care spending. Most practicing doctors would like to set up matching ancillary services in their clinic or office to provide better services to their patients. Since most of them are busy to spare time for research and find suitable guidance or assistance to include ancillary services alongside their practice, they recommend patients to stand -alone ancillary centers or hospitals with the facility for conducting the tests there. The patient also faces the inconvenience in visiting these off-site centers and prefers one- stop solutions.

Ancillary Medical Solutions, a new-age innovative service provider based in San Diego, has variety of options for setting up in-house ancillary medical services for the practicing physicians. The Company specializes in providing in-depth and proven matching solutions to the practitioner for setting up ancillary services in one’s own office or clinic. They help the doctor in providing better delivery of its health care services to the patients as well as open a sustainable revenue generation source. Currently, the Company provides solutions for setting up Vestibular Autorotation Test for Fall Prevention, On-site allergy testing, laboratory, Platelet Rich Plasma, Medical Fitness, Sudopathy, Food allergy Testing, Holter Test, Mental Health assessment and host of similar services which can be seen in their website www.ancillarymedicalsoloutions.com. The expertise, experience and consultative approach of the company provide a comprehensible road map for a profitable venture with negligible financial risks to the practitioner.

The Vestibular Autorotation Test (VAT) is an important test for the senior citizens who complain of falling. The incidence of fall and fall related injuries among the senior citizens is increasing and contrary to the common perception, only 9% of the patients were falling because of balance problem. In fact, a large section of the patients in this category suffer from vestibular dysfunction which can be easily diagnosed from VAT and relevant remedial advice/medication can be prescribed. The VAT test, being non-invasive and painless, can be completed in office by the practitioner within 20 minutes. 

In this test, the patient is asked to simply wear a lightweight head strap that connects to five electrodes.  These electrodes connect at various points around the eyes and forehead.  At the sound  of a computer-generated tone, the patient moves their head left and right, up and down in a series of simple tests.  Immediately upon completion, a report is printed with graphing to easily show the Primary Care Physician where the patient is deficient.  In most cases, the patient is instructed on some simple eye exercises they can do at home.  Four weeks later the patient is re-tested to track improvement.

According to Company’s spokesperson Michael Berg, “The VAT results are important in diagnosing the fall related problems of the aged. The timely test helps the patient in early recovery and independence. The test is also reimbursable by all insurance companies and can open a revenue stream for the physician.”

The Company plans to engage with the medical practitioners interested in augmenting the facilities in their offices/clinics. It encourages them to set up ancillary facilities suitable to their practice or patient requirements and provides

them complete assistance for the same. The company presently has nineteen different options, from generic to specialized areas, on offer and perhaps is the only business in the field to serve such variety to its clients. The company professes to discuss, deliberate and support the practitioner on deciding the most suitable options.

This is perhaps the widest range of services available under one roof”.

Adding further, he declared that the company provides facility like commissioning of requisite set-up, its technical maintenance, providing trained assistants/ technicians and long term assistance on different aspects like training or financing or even required legal documentation. The economics of the facility is rewarding to the physician since it adds to additional revenue generation. Besides it also helps in better client retention and addition since most patients prefer one-stop solution to their problems.

Many recent surveys have pointed that most patients like to visit the medical facilities where ‘reinvestment’ is done by the medical practitioner. The in- house ancillary medical services helps the clinic by retaining and expanding its client base. The doctor, in its part, is more confident on its diagnosis and course of treatment for the patients. The services of the company range from elementary Protocall (messaging service between doctor and patient) suitable to all practitioners to generic setting up of on-site laboratory to specialized services like Urodynamics. Statistics suggest that over 22% medical practitioners have added ancillary services in their office which has also provided robust remuneration to them. Indeed, many more doctors are likely to follow and the Ancillary Medical Solutions is set to take a high growth trajectory in near future.

A New Public Sculpture Exhibition Returns to Century City

Apr 24, 2015

(Newswire.com)

A second unique, year-long public art exhibition — creating an encounter between art and the public realm — has arrived in Century City. Century City Sculpture 2015 features 20 abstract pieces by 10 nationally and internationally renowned artists. This is the second exhibition organized by the Sculpture Committee of the Century City Chamber of Commerce Arts Council and the Century City Arts & Culture Foundation.

Carl Schlosberg, curator and member of the Arts Council remarks, “The mission of the exhibition is to bring to the public a sense of spirit, to provoke their imagination and arouse their curiosity.”

Susan Bursk, President & CEO of the Century City Chamber of Commerce adds, “Bringing public art to Century City for all to enjoy is a mark of a strong community commitment to the increased cultural life of this very special area.”

The 2015 exhibition is expansive, and will be visible throughout the community in front of office buildings, plazas, parkways and green belts. In contrast to the Council’s first exhibition last year of Gwynn Murrill’s bronze animals, this collection exclusively features abstract art.

The Art/The Sites

The Avenue of the Stars median holds Jeffery Laudenslager’s three soaring, 22-foot kinetic works of titanium and stainless steel. Propelled by air and wind currents, the sculptures create unlimited shapes and forms. Marlene Louchheim’s two-part polished bronze and silver nickel sculpture, Full of Nature, and Bret Price’s galvanized, painted steel Roll-Up and his 30-foot tall High Hopes, also enhance the median. At The Irvine Company’s Fox Plaza (2121 Avenue of the Stars), Price’s painted steel Zig Zag animates a grassy area.

 The Hines property’s (10100 Santa Monica Boulevard) front grass area features two bronze and steel sculptures, Diamaru XVI and Mia’s Enso, by Michael Todd. In the west garden, installed on an intriguing base of weathered wood, is Irondress, a cast iron sculpture by Peter Shelton, courtesy of L.A. Louver Gallery. The lobby is the setting for four abstract sculptures: mixed media works, Blah, Blah, Blah and The Tornado by Mark Lere, and Matt Wedel’s ceramic works, Gem, 2007 and Rock, 2010, courtesy of L.A. Louver Gallery.

Nearby at the Equity Office building (1999 Avenue of the Stars) is South African sculptor Edoardo Villa’s abstracted female reclining figure, set in a dramatic garden of succulents. Bret Price’s bright red Godot stands in front of the Constellation Place building (10250 Constellation Boulevard). Price’s steel Ball of Chain is installed on Century Park East, in front of the circular driveway of Watt Plaza (1875-1925 Century Park East), along with David Buckingham’s colorful steel Big X. Further down the street, on a gentle knoll in front of the Century Plaza Towers (2029-2049 Century Park East), visitors can view Ken Bortolazzo’s stainless steel Hexad, 1999.

This exhibition supported and funded solely by the following stakeholders of Century City, including Century City BID Association; Carl Schlosberg Fine Arts; Constellation Place; DiMascio & Berardo; InterContinental Hotel; L.A. Louver Gallery; Leslie Sacks Contemporary; Watt Plaza; Bank of America; Century City Homeowners Alliance; Century Park; Charles Schwab; Gainsborough Capital; Greenberg Glusker; Irvine Company’s Fox Plaza; Los Angeles Modern Auctions; Lee Bronson; Loeb & Loeb, LLP; U.S. Trust, Bank of America Private Wealth Management; ValleyCrest Landscape Companies; CDG LA; Denenberg Fine Arts; Dr. & Mrs. Hamlin Emory; H.S. Consulting; Georgina & Alan Rothenberg; and Carole Schiffer.

Sculpture tours, lectures and events will be available to the community. For more information, visit www.centurycitysculpture.com, or contact the Century City Chamber at (310) 553-2222

Cousteau Family Visits Minneapolis

Apr 21, 2015

(Newswire.com)

Governor Mark Dayton’s proposal is currently stalled in the Legislature, but that doesn’t stop Minnesotans from caring about the importance of water and water quality.  Governor Dayton’s proposal will “require a healthy strip of natural vegetation along a third or more of the 70,000 miles of streams, rivers and ditches that meander through Minnesota” (“In Minnesota, buffer strips are rallying cry for cleaner water,” Star Tribune, 4-17-2015). This is very much in line with what Jacques Cousteau once said: “we forget that the water cycle and the life cycle are one.”  This is but one of the many reasons Beth El Synagogue’s next Inspiring Minds speakers are the Cousteau Family.

Beth El Synagogue’s Inspiring Minds Series proudly presents An Evening with the Cousteau Family (www.besyn.org/cousteaus) on May 7th.  Jean-Michel Cousteau (son of Jacques-Yves), and his children Céline and Fabien, will help open up our minds to a world of sustainability, conservation, stewardship and innovation. 

Through this majestic evening, these inspiring minds, living and teaching the legacy of their father and grandfather Jacques-Yves Cousteau, will share with us the beauty and diversity of our world’s water–the source of all life on our planet.  The goal is that attendees will feel an even stronger desire to protect what, for some, will either be experienced for the first time, or perhaps re-discovered.  The Cousteau Family inspires us to recognize that marine conservation is one of the keys to improving our community and our world.

ABOUT JEAN-MICHEL

Honoring his heritage, Jean-Michel Cousteau founded Ocean Futures Society in 1999 to carry on this pioneering work. Ocean Futures Society, a non-profit marine conservation and education organization, serves as a “Voice for the Ocean” by communicating in all media the critical bond between people and the sea and the importance of wise environmental policy.

ABOUT CÉLINE

Céline Cousteau is founder and executive director of CauseCentric Productions, a non-profit organization that creates cause-focused multimedia content. As a member of the World Economic Forum Council on Oceans, Céline collaborates with the council to provide recommendations to the WEF about ocean issues. Celine’s current major work is a multimedia project, documentary, and engagement campaign “Tribes on the Edge” based on the indigenous tribes of the Vale do Javari reserve in the Brazilian Amazon.

ABOUT FABIEN

With his vast experience in the field, Fabien Cousteau uses his knowledge to help refine a public policy platform grounded in the belief that environmental discipline can be the basis for cutting-edge solutions that strike a balance between regional as well as global environmental problems and the realities of market economies.  In June 2014, Fabien and his team of aquanauts embarked on Mission 31, which broke new ground in ocean exploration and honored the 50th anniversary of his grandfather’s original underwater living experiment (Conshelf Two) by going deeper, longer and further, while broadcasting each moment live on multiple channels exposing the world to the adventure, drama and mystique of what lies beneath (www.mission-31.com).

More information and tickets are available online at www.besyn.org/cousteaus.

 Date/Time:        Thursday | May 7, 2015 | 7:00 pm

Location:          Beth El Synagogue | 5225 Barry Street West | St. Louis Park, MN 55416
