The unwritten rule pest control services use for rats mice removal extermination

Rats usually spend most of their time inside in the attic. But sometimes they set up shop, and create nests, inside the walls of homes. Once in an attic, they can easily find their way down the walls of homes as they search out new areas and seek a way to get into the house, if they detect food.Mice and rats love pet food. When dogs feed outside thats an open invitation of every pest in the neighborhood. Store pet and bird food in glass or metal containers with tight lids.
According to the CDC, mice and rats spread more than 35 diseases directly to humans through handling; contact with rodent feces, urine, or saliva; or rodent bites. Humans can also contract diseases carried by rodents indirectly, through ticks, mites or fleas that have fed on an infected rodent.Pest control service technician exterminators are trained to handle such problems.

Long-term Bonds Could Be Hit Hardest by the Federal Reserve Interest Rate Hike

The Federal Reserve’s interest rate hike could impact long-term bond investors—including many retirees—hard. Old-school investment strategies that include bond-heavy retirement portfolios may no longer be the standard for conservative retirement planning in 2016.

HEATH, TX – 31 Mar, 2016 – The Federal Reserve interest rate hikes that had been anticipated for more than 12 months are now a reality. Many retirees and Baby Boomers wondered how rising interest rates would affect their retirement portfolios. In preparation for the inevitable rate hikes, many financial professionals focused on how to navigate the conservative investment landscape. At a time when any interest rate increases could translate to decreasing bond prices, bond-heavy retirement portfolios faced challenges.

Indeed these rate hikes were not good news for long-term bond investors, especially those who have not recently reevaluated their retirement portfolios before the hikes began to take effect. Anyone who chose to hang onto long-term bonds despite the impending rate hike could see the value of those bonds go down.

According to financial advisor Reid Johnson, President of Lake Point Advisory Group in Heath, Texas, there could be a problem with following the traditional rule of thumb that conservative investors should just put a higher percentage of their retirement portfolio in bonds.

“That may have been a good strategy for conservative investors in the past, because until now, bonds had been in a 30-year bull market,” he says. “This same strategy is probably not going to be in the client’s best interest today, as both long- and short-term interest rates are near all-time lows.

“Not only do we have stock market volatility to deal with, but now interest rate volatility is a major concern as well. We are in unchartered waters.”

According to Johnson, clients who are retired or just a few years away from retirement should be even more risk-averse because the potential for rate increases could mean quickly needing to shift assets into less volatile products.

In 2016, some traditional investment strategies could potentially be less viable for conservative clients who may be better off in cash or alternative fixed vehicles, such as annuities, instead.

When evaluating the fixed-income portion of their retirement portfolio, investors also need to look at the maturity dates of their bond funds. If a fund invests in longer-term bonds in the 10- to 30-year maturity range, these are especially interest rate-sensitive. Their value will drop more than short-term bond funds as interest rates increase. Investors with shorter-term bond funds could fare better because as the underlying bonds mature sooner, these funds can reinvest in newer issues with higher interest rates. Investors could then also benefit from reinvesting the increased income at higher rates.

Long-term bonds are vulnerable to more interest rate volatility than short-term bonds because over a longer period of time, the probability of interest rates rising is much higher. Short-term bonds do not carry as much volatility because interest rates are less likely to change considerably in the short term. Short-term bonds are also easier to hold until maturity, which improves the probability of getting back all of the principle.

Another factor investors should consider is that long-term bonds are often a major part of target-date funds found in many 401(k) plans. For decades many have opted to buy and hang on to these long-time favorites of their parents and grandparents. Target date funds are popular because they greatly simplify the investment decision-making process for many clients. While the long, historical track record of target funds can appeal to aging populations, many target-date funds are exposed to high levels of interest rate volatility.

As interest rates return to historically normal levels, many retired investors could potentially wait too long to reduce their interest rate volatility exposure. The Jan. 2, 2016 Fed rate hike was the first in almost 10 years, and there is a good chance that more hikes are coming.

Those hardest impact by the rate hike are investors who spent 2015 in a holding pattern over the Fed’s announcements of an impending interest rate increase. Making changes to their portfolios instead of taking a “wait-and-see” approach could have helped them avoid bond market losses. However, bonds have been comfort-zone investments for many years, and not everyone was ready for change.

“Retirees and pre-retirees had a difficult time assessing the impact that an interest rate hike would have on their long-term bonds, and many were afraid to do something different,” Johnson says. “Conservative investors need to brace themselves for more volatility than they’ve ever seen before. They could be forced to make a choice: either look for alternative methods of fixed income investing, or face the increased volatility of an uncertain bond market.

Even a small rate hike like this recent one of .25 percent can impact retirees with bond-heavy portfolios. Long-term bond owners who still plan to work for 10 or more years may have a chance of riding things out as long as the market normalizes before they retire, but current retirees may not have that option. Over the next year, and particularly if the Fed becomes more aggressive with its plans, conservative investors may need to move some of that long-term bond money into other securities to offset the price drop.

Any time the Federal Reserve raises the interest rate, it suggests the economy is improving, but for bond holders, it can mean a different story. Still, the impact of rate increases on long-term bonds remains relatively unclear. This is because the value of bonds is influenced by a variety of factors, including global growth and inflation. A rate increase may cause some investors to sell their long-term bonds, but it’s likely there are still plenty of investors who remain attracted to the long-term safety of Treasury debt, especially with the recent stress in the high-yield debt market. With concerns about the global economic outlook and how it may affect stocks, the decision is indeed complex and difficult.

Learningonline.xyz explores holographic technology for an enhanced language learning experience

CUPERTINO, CA – 31 Mar, 2016 – Holographic platforms are one of the emerging technologies to engage learning in a real world environment. From interacting with groups of learners from around the world in a real conversation to one on one coaching and tutoring, holograms are rapidly coming to the fore as a platform to enhance the learner experience and transform the face of education as we know it.

Hologorams are a photographic technique that records the light scattered from an object and presents it in a way that it appears three-dimensional. The technology has intrigued researchers, scientist and developers for over 60 years and dominated futuristic story creation. The recent surge in practical application in areas such as scientific research, medicine, aerospace, commerce etc. reflects a commitment to match the newer holographic technology coming on board.

Finally, real life application is accessible and has the backing of leading developers such as Microsoft with its breaking launch of HoloLens – the first fully untethered, holographic computer, enabling you to interact with high‑definition holograms in the real world.

Sue Brett, C.E.O. at Learningonline.xyz shared: “What excites us about this technology is that it is a perfect tool for communication, and language learning is all about communication. As this tech opens up new boundaries, we have a phenomenal opportunity to explore and play with new ways of learning and picking up new skills. Engaging learners is always top on our priority list.”

Learningonline.xyz is currently exploring Project Milah (Multi-Language Hologram); the perfect polyglot that speaks over 100 languages with an interface that is voice-activated and can engage and interact with the user in real time.

“It’s not about creating a Virtual Assistant, but a more scenario based learning for languages, that is really exciting and relevant as a user, in the same way that a friend would teach you their native language. Languages are all about communicating with people and holographic delivery really represents that.”

Milah always turns up when you need her, loves to talk 24/7 and is always in a fantastic mood. She would be the perfect omni-cultural language learning partner; practicing language skills to learn new words and phrases, such as greetings in a foreign language.

Christian Ministry Launches New Radio Program for Domestic and Sexual Abuse Victims

It is estimated that one in four women will be the victim of domestic violence, and almost 500 women a day are sexually assaulted. One of the hotspots for domestic and sexual violence is the New York City and New Jersey metropolitan areas, which is why the Healing Heart Ministry will soon be launching a one hour Christian radio program on New York’s WMCA 570 that will provide advice and resources for victimized women. Headed by Pastor Liz Pla, the Healing Heart Ministry is a Christian organization that helps victims and survivors of domestic violence.

Pastor Liz began Healing Heart Ministry after her own experiences as a target of sexual assault and domestic abuse. In the years since its creation, Healing Heart Ministry has helped church leaders facilitate dialogue with and among victims, as well as providing life-saving resources to abuse victims. Healing Heart Ministry recognizes that there is an epidemic of domestic abuse, even within the Christian community, and is committed to raising awareness, providing counsel, and making available legal or social assistance.

This new radio program will build on the ministry’s accomplishments, but it needs your support. Pastor Liz has sponsored a fundraising campaign on Indiegogo to raise the $75,000 needed to lease office space and obtain equipment for the weekly radio broadcast. In addition to the satisfaction of knowing that you have improved the lives of suffering women and children, you can also get perks for contributing to this campaign including a handwritten thank you note from Pastor Liz Pla, a Healing Heart Ministry mug, pen, shirt, on-air recognition, or opportunity to co-host the radio show. If you cannot financially support this worthy project, please consider sharing this campaign with others on Facebook or Twitter.
