NeuroCore is at it again and this time they are going to the pros. The Portland Trailblazers were on their list to try out their therapy to help them function and play better. This team agreed to do this hopes to help themselves give off a better performance on the court as well as their everyday lives. Visit Patch.com to know more about Neurocore.
After every game, they go into a room where they watch DVDs and have their activity monitored by NeuroCore. They have brainwave equipment that is used for this purpose and every player that participated has one wrapped around their head. What the main goal is here is to help the players get into the deep sleep they need to restore their energy. Also, these sessions only last for 30 minutes. Tim Royer, NeuroCore founder, believes athletes who sleep better perform better, which is why the Portland Trailblazers were chosen for this experiment. Because players have to do 82 games per season, their bodies go through a tremendous amount of stress and other issues that may negate their body functions. With them going to the brain room, it improves how they function in terms of their bodies many systems and the brain. See more information at Linkedin about Neurocore.
While watching the DVDs, the point is to stay focused on what is playing. If a player’s mind starts to wonder, then the movie will not play anymore until the players put his mind back into focus. This helps to train the brain to stay focused on whether it’s playing basketball or any other task where concentration would be needed. This will not only make the players mentally strong but anyone who tries the methods of NeuroCore. The device used called NeuroCore Pro uses very low designed frequencies that help the brain to get adequate rest. It is not really about getting sleep but being in a state of mind where you can calm down after being part of something so rigorous.
These athletes probably did get better. After all, it was all about making your brain function better. If you can accomplish that, then you can accomplish practically anything.
One of the influential figures in the history of oil, gas, waste management, and tanning industries is Matthew Fleeger. Fleeger was raised in the oil and gas business since his father was the founder and owner of Gulf Coast Western.

After graduating from college, he aided several different oil and gas companies in several different areas of leadership from 1985 to 1993.
One of these businesses was the family-owned Gulf Coast for which he served as president from 1985 to 1990. He then served as Vice President of Kinlaw Oil Company from 1990 to 1993. It was in 1993 that he founded MedSolutions, Inc. MedSolution was focused on the transportation, disposal, and treatment of medical waste in the healthcare industry. He would lead the company as its Chairman, CEO, and President from 1993 to 2007. It was at this time that MedSolution was purchased and absorbed by Stericycle for $59 million.
As mentioned, Fleeger has also had business dealings in the tanning industry. He has assisted in founding two incredibly successful tanning businesses: Palm Beach Tan and Mystic Tan. He also served as the Director of Palm Beach Tan from 1999 to 2000. The two tan businesses combined have resulted in more than $100 million in revenue. Throughout his extremely impressive career, Fleeger has obtained vast experience and knowledge in business areas such as acquisitions, mergers, corporate restructuring, joint ventures, and many other business-related matters.
It was after brokering the sale of MedSolution in 2007 that Fleeger returned to the oil and gas industry. At that time he became the president and CEO of his father’s company, Gulf Coast Western. He still continues to hold these positions.

One of the big things that he knows is that investors cannot afford to lose money by investing in just a few areas. He knows that the smart investor is going to be the one that is willing to go the distance.

He knows that there are options to consider, and he places a great amount of emphasis on diversifying because this leaves you with room to navigate.

The risk is too high when your options are limited.
JD.com has caused a huge disturbance in the Chinese shipping industry. Recently, JD.com announced that they will open up their a logistics network to private consumers and businesses. The move announced on Thursday will first be rolled out the cover the regions of Beijing, Shanghai, and Guangzhou. For now, the move will only be directed towards organizations and later might move to individual citizens.

Alibaba holding’s rival JD.com are already making moves towards including residents.
The move by JD.com is way bigger than simply offering new perks, the move is a shift to monumental conversion to the likes of UPS and or FedEx where all their current warehouses and logistic vehicles will not be used for this purpose. The company is confident, however, that they will be able to reach over 99% of the population with no problem. Similar to JD.com’s move, other giants like Amazon are also moving into the parcel delivery business, however, JD.com still remains with the advantage as they already hold many of their own vehicles to begin shipping immediately.
Although Amazon will only present that service in the United States, JD.com has enough competition in China with number 2 Alibaba Holdings searching for ways to get ahead.Now that both companies are offering the same services, the competitive motives now lead them to fight for who offers the best service. Alibaba Holdings has spent much of its revenue on express overnight delivery, a strategy that they believe will put them on top of JD.com. On the other side, JD.com is putting much of its revenue towards automating its warehouses to a better accommodate the large amounts of orders that will come through their doors, the move will also reduce mistakes and cut processing times which are sure to make their customers very happy.
Radio show host and TV personality Ryan Seacrest entertained fans this year with some Halloween costumes based on throwback TV.
I Dream of Jeannie, Friends, All My Children, The Brady Bunch, Saved By the Bell, Laverne and Shirley, CHiPs, I Love Lucy and Charlie’s Angels were all were just some of the TV shows that Seacrest (along with Kelly Ripa) drew inspiration from.
Seacrest continues to show that he has time for fun and fans alike, despite being a part of multiple radio and TV projects such as On Air with Ryan and Live with Kelly and Ryan.
The co-hosts talked about how they pulled of some of their spactacular costumes. Seacrest (@RyanSeacrest) said that for him,”For me, the most painful was going from Shirley to John Baker. That transition, I barely made it.” Seacrest also admitted that he still had the glitter and lipstick that he used for the costume around somewhere and that he wore spanx for one of the costumes. “You know what the best part about it was?” he joked, “Taking them off.”
Rippa had a lot of fun with her Farrah Fawcett costume and she said that she wore her own clothes “and they added nipples.” “That’s how you know it’s Charlie’s Angels,” she said.
The hosts also talked about what mashups and what shows they would love to bring back. Rippa claimed to want to bring All My Children back to the present, “and also of course Hope and Faith. I would like a Hope and Faith/All My Children mash up.”
Ryan Seacrest added that he thinks a “Punky Brewster/NCIS mashup would actually be a nice one too.” Rippon even teased Seacrest about teaming up with Mark Consuelos about bringing back ‘CHiPS’ because the duo looked “sexy in those costumes,”
Even though Halloween is over now, we have almost a whole year to plan costumes for the next year of spooky fun!

Carlos Alberto de Oliveira Andrade hails from Joao Pessoa and he is a trained medical doctor. He practiced as a physician for some time before changing his career trajectory. Dr. Carlos took an entrepreneurship direction and now, he is the Chairman of Board of Directors of CAOA.
In 1979, he ordered a Ford Landau from a popular dealership in Campina Grande. The dealership was declared bankrupt before they could deliver the car to him.

Open to new opportunities
In 1972, the Brazilian automotive industry opened up after prohibition of imported vehicles was lifted. Dr. Carlos took advantage of the opportunity and started importing Renault. Renault sales increased significantly in Brazil before Renault came to claim its position as a rightful import. In 1998, CAOA started importing Subaru vehicles and within a year, the sales of Subaru tripled. Although South Korea brand, Hyundai, was being imported to Brazil before CAOA came in, CAOA improved its sales significantly after it started importing the brand. Dr. Carlos made the Hyundai brand successful in Brazil.
Dream come true
