Japanese investors will often repatriate some of their overseas investments, and this usually occurs around the turn of the fiscal year. This may appear to make U.S. bonds more attractive to investors, but Japanese investors continue to buy Japanese bonds instead of U.S. bonds.
The market seems to expect three rate hikes based on the Federal Reserve news. The Federal Reserve seems to believe that the U.S. economy is doing well. This will help investors achieve their goals, and make the U.S. more attractive as a place to invest.

Equities First Holdings has seven offices in four continents, and the United Kingdom office is as important, if not more, than the others. Smart people have been hired to work out of this office and to provide great liquidy opportunities and better than average services to its clients.
Throughout human history, there has been very little that people could do to stave off the inevitable insults to health and beauty that the aging process brings. People often were forced to abide the slow decline of aging, seeing their skin wrinkle, their voice coarsen and their physical prowess slide painfully into the jaws of senescence.
But for the first time ever, science of the last few decades has been able to produce a number of tools that allow people to significantly slow or even indefinitely postpone the process of aging. One company that has done more than perhaps any other to make the art of age defiance a reality for millions has been Jeunesse Global.
Founded in 2009 by health and beauty experts Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis, Jeunesse has experienced some of the most astonishing growth of any health and beauty company in recent memory. The couple started the business out of their Florida home as a way to pass the idle days of retirement. But they soon discovered that they had a winning formula on their hands. They began concentrating on attacking niches in the market that the larger health and beauty suppliers were ignoring, hitting pay dirt with a number of their products.
From the outset, Ray and Lewis sought to create what they have referred to as Generation Young: the first generation of people that have the tools and knowledge at their disposal to maintain youth of both mind and body into advanced age. Through Jeunesse Global’s carefully crafted product lineup, which is known as the Youth Enhancement System, users are able to stave off the worst effects of aging for periods that were never before imaginable. At the same time, users of the Youth Enhancement System can prevent the onset of the worst aging effects, maintaining a youthful appearance and enjoying optimal physical condition far longer than would otherwise be possible.
Jeunesse Global is truly changing how the game of anti-aging intervention is played. It has created more than a dozen age-defying products, many of which have no real competition. Through innovation, Jeunesse Global is well on its way to creating Generation Young.
Dr. Mark McKenna is an Atlanta, Georgia, entrepreneur. His latest venture is a business called OVME which will be located in the Buckhead area of this city which is this city’s commercial and financial center. He says that his company will deliver what he calls a “medical aesthetic experience” like no other. At OVME people will be able to undergo minimally invasive procedures in order to look and feel better.
The OVME offices will have four private treatment rooms in it that Dr. Mark McKenna has described as luxurious. OVME will be open for business in March and he is presently equipping it with the latest technology in the industry. He says that the cosmetic surgery industry has gotten stale and his plan is to shake it up by reinventing elective healthcare.
Dr. Mark McKenna is a graduate of the Tulane School of Medicine. He practiced in New Orleans, Louisiana, for a number of years before moving to Georgia. He now has about 20 years of experience in the cosmetic surgery industry. His past success led to several investors lining up when he announced his latest plans. He says he will treat each patient on an individualized basis rather than the one size fits all approach that is common in the industry.
Eventually, Dr. Mark McKenna wants to have OVME locations all over America. He is releasing an app for his business which will be revolutionary. Rather than patients going to the doctor, the doctor will come to them. He says that app is similar to Uber’s in that the user schedules a service and the provider comes to where they are.
Billing and reimbursements have changed a lot over the years, he says. It used to be very profitable to be a doctor but that’s really not the case anymore. Dr. Mark McKenna says that he saw this early on and it was why he started investing in real estate at a young age. While in school he did physicals at a local jail where he was paid $50 an hour. He put all of this money into real estate. He sold this business a number of years ago.
It’s no surprise that the field of cosmetic surgery is competitive. With traditional medical insurance not picking up the tab customers are much more likely to comparison shop and find the best value for their money. It can be very difficult for a cosmetic surgery practitioner to provide both an excellent quality of care combined with a price that is competitive in the local market.
When looking for examples of best practices, Mark Mofid is one of the first names that comes to mind. Starting out initially in an 850 square foot space he has considerably grown his practice to accommodate the newest treatments as well as tried and true methods.
The way Mark Mofid built his practice was a mix of conventional and unconventional business philosophy. One of the most conventional pieces of advice he gives newcomers is to never put the cart before the horse. With so many procedures, options, and new technology it can be very tempting to invest heavily and things that you are not comfortable with. Mark Mofid started his practice small and grew it from there once he had established his client base and experience.
On the unconventional side of things is his staffing practices. Mark Mofid wholly believes that “experience is overrated“ and that some of his best employees have been diamonds in the rough. This makes quite a bit of sense for generalist positions such as front office staff. In many cases it’s more important for a person to be driven and motivated rather than have experience. Sometimes this experience can be a detriment if too many bad habits are learned.
It is important to note however that you cannot expect to retain quality employees forever. You should expect and actively seek out employees who want to advance in their careers. You may not be able to keep them forever, but you this is the only way to ensure that you only hire the most driven and motivated people.
These combined techniques have made Mark Mofid a standout in his industry. These lessons are often applicable not only to cosmetic surgery, but also to small business and entrepreneurship as a whole.
Few people live a healthy lifestyle. The aging process is painful for the vast majority of people. Numerous doctors attempt to educate clients on how to improve this process. Dr. Dov Rand is a hormone specialist who understands the process of aging. With years of research in the field, he is one of the world’s most respected experts in the field of anti-aging research. Although the aging process cannot be stopped, it can be slowed down and improved (Zocdoc).
The best way to improve the aging process is to eat a healthy diet. A healthy diet has natural food options that are full of vitamins and minerals. The average person eats processed food at almost every meal. Although processed food does provide some energy, most people experience a significant energy crash a few hours after eating processed food.
Multiple studies show the benefits of daily exercise when it comes to anti-aging. By exercising regularly, people can drastically decrease their odds of developing a significant health issue.
Exercise can also help a person lose fat. Many people attempt to lose weight every year with poor results. Managing a successful weight loss plan is not easy. Dr. Dov Rand encourages everyone to exercise as much as possible. He attempts to exercise almost every day by combining both cardiovascular and resistance training.
Another critical factor in aging is stress. Many people deal with elevated levels of stress each day. Not only is stress challenging to manage, but it can also increase a person’s odds of developing a chronic disease.
When a person prioritizes sleep, stress levels decline over time. Sleep should be prioritized over other activities in life. Exercise has also been proven to help with chronic levels of stress. Dr. Dov Rand recommends that people meditate each day to reduce stress and improve health.

Dr. Johanan Rand is a Bioidentical Doctor, Physiatrist, and Founder of Healthy Aging Medical Centers in West Orange, New Jersey. He developed a practice that proactively helps patients balance their hormone levels through diet and hormone optimization. He developed the practice, Bioidentical Hormone Replacement, that allows his patients to regenerate their hormones so they function at optimal levels. Nutritional therapy and hormone replacement alleviates symptoms of anxiety while assisting in muscle gain and weight loss (Doximity).
Bioidentical Hormone Replacement was designed to help people retain their youth by restoring their hormone levels. The ultimate goal is to regenerate a healthy balance of hormones through vitamins, nutrition, and exercise. As people get older, hormones tend to decline resulting in anxiety, depression, sleep problems, increased risk of cancer and other progressive illnesses that come from aging. Dr. Johanan provides patients with an individual detoxification program that incorporates diet, exercise and vitamins to restore hormones.
Hormones can be divided into two factors, in which Dr.Johanan compares to “the sea saw effect”, where you have good hormones and bad hormones on each side. As aging appears, bad hormones may override the good hormones such as estrogen, testosterone, and progesterone; which tend to be prominent during youth. With an increase level of our good hormones, we can prevent certain diseases such as cancer and heart disease while increasing vigor. The HCG Diet, known as human chorionic gonadotropin, is a hormone that is produced in women during pregnancy. Through this diet, people are able to lose weight and receive several benefits such as increased energy, morale, and healthy insulin levels.
The HCG Diet has been proven to suppress appetite by lowering calorie intake to 500 calories a day; eating a low calorie diet results in feeling less hungry and more satisfied after meals. Although challenging, the HCG Diet has been proven that patients can lose several pounds and achieve good hormone levels while still being able to eat their favorite foods.

Jorge Moll received his MD in Neuroscience from the Federal University of Rio de Janiero. Mr. Moll also earned his PhD in Experimental Pathology, Sau Paulo University. Currently Mr. Moll is the President and Board Member of D’ Or Institute of Research and Education (IDOR) and the Director of Cognitive and Behavioral Neuroscience Unit and Neuroinformatics Workgroup, a top ranked DICOM laboratory.
Jorge has a passion for world-class research and the fruits of this diligent work is what he feels can improve the lives of his fellow Brazilians. Jorge Moll a dreamer, yet practical man believes strongly in acting on ideas in which, executable plans can be formulated and collaborated with peers to make reality. Coming from a man whose daily routine consists literally of a series of collaborating meetings, Jorge cannot stress enough the value he places on the power of constructive collaboration. Mr. Moll an outstanding and active member of the scientific community has expressed his concern with the current climate of the scientific community and its lack of high risk and long terms plans (Idor.org).
The renowned neuroscientist in the mid 2000’s conducted an experiment which was in part related to a 1988 study by an economist James Andreoni’s concept of the “warm-glow giving”. Jorge Molly and fellow scientist Jordan Grafman conducted an experiment in which individuals brains where scanned using an MRI. Moll and Grafman wanted to discover what physical changes took place in the human brain when we are conducting an act of giving. The experiment tested 19 people, each with $128. Each person could either give the money away or keep it for themselves. The experiment found, that during acts of giving, primitive areas of the brain showed activity associated with sex and food. This is actually the very first evidence of a biological basis in the brain during acts of giving. This experiments proves that humans are evolving to be more compassionate and less selfish. I think we can all agree that the world can benefit from being more compassionate to our fellow human brothers and sisters.
