Tammy Mazzocco got her real estate license in 1995. Before that date, Tammy worked as a secretary for nine realtors. She then graduated to a management position where the took care of a group of condominiums. So then Tammy figured out that she could make a lot more money selling real estate as opposed to managing it.

The real estate market in Ohio has been very good in 2016, mainly because the job market has been very active and mortgage interest rates have been low. When people are working, and prospects are good economically, they are more in a position to purchase houses. Unfortunately, the interest rates took a hit in November, around election time when interest reached the 4% level.

Then there suddenly appeared a housing shortage at about the same time interest rates went up. There were still lots of prospective buyers looking, but with fewer houses available, they just had to look faster.

Tammy Mazzocco (https://www.trulia.com/profile/tammy-mazzocco-agent-johnstown-oh-zgwx6bks/overview) doesn’t let too many market changes set her back too much because she can’t do much to change them. What she does do is to make friends with the people. She admits that she is a shy person, so she has to work at starting conversations.

In real estate, there are going to be many changes all the time, but the agents have to rise above all that. Tammy Mazzocco has been able to do that by keeping active and staying busy. There is always someone to call, an email to follow up on, and a new lead to follow up on.

Tammy Mazzocco also likes to spend time doing research. She not only receives leads from some of the commercial online sources, but she uses detailed demographics to learn about trends and property value fluctuation so prospective buyers can be informed. According to Mapquest.com, the Cleveland market had a great year in 2016, but time marches on, and every tool helps.

Many people take for granted the ability to breathe easily each and every day. With many different lung disorders and respiratory problems that can negatively affect breathing, people suffer greatly with issues such as emphysema, cystic fibrosis, chronic / recurring bronchitis, COPD, pulmonary fibrosis, etc. Not too long ago, these conditions would surely shorten a person’s life span. Today, the PR Web has revealed that there are many different medications and treatment options that can improve a patient’s daily life, their quality of breathing and also help reverse damage done to the lungs and upper respiratory region. The Lung Institute is one facility that is using a number of these treatments, including a lung stem cell treatment.

During the process of completing a lung stem cell treatment at The Lung Institute, a patient’s very own stem cells are harvested and used to help heal and treat damaged lungs. Stem cells are extracted from bone marrow in the patient’s body or their blood. The stem cells are returned to the body with the goal of healing occurring in the lungs as stem cells are easily trapped in the lungs once they are pumped through the heart. A new lease on life can be achieved through this somewhat simple procedure that is now being used with greater frequency in not just The Lung Institut but a number of other facilities across the country as well. To learn more go to lunginstitute.com.

There is certain criteria that needs to be met in order to be a candidate for a lung stem cell treatment. The staff at The Lung Institute is experienced with ensuring patients are well assessed before undergoing any type of treatment plan such as this. Some treatments may work well for some patients while other options are preferred for others. Great research has been done on this procedure and The Lung Institute has perfected the process of extracted blood or bone marrow, separating out the stem cells and returning the blood and cells to the patient’s body where the stem cells will do all the work. This procedure can be effective, and be effective for a good deal of time. Also, repeated procedures can be done if need be.

Everything about the just concluded US elections was historic. Starting from the fact that when the now 45th president of the United States, Donald Trump, started his journey to the Whitehouse, not many people took his bid seriously. Then, the Republican Party nominations were made, and he had made it in, to the shock of everyone. Yet there are many who kept thinking that he was not a worthy opponent to Hillary Clinton, the Democratic Party Candidate. If the main stream media was anything to go by, Hillary was about to break the proverbial glass ceiling and become the first female president. Then came the voting, and the tallying; much to the consternation of people around the world, Trump was leading!

Well, at least you know that the story ends in Trump winning an unexpected number of Electoral College votes and Hillary taking home the popular vote. Well, during times like this, giving facts can be a tough cookie to chew, however, the media is mandated to give the truth regardless of how tough it is to hear. One outlet that has been having a hard time explaining the US situation as the country awaits the inauguration is Wikipedia. Normally, there are pages that contain information about the past and current presidents of the state. This page is currently carrying two photos. The first one portrays Barrack Obama as the president, but since Wikipedia is a free to edit source of information, people have been making edits and from time to time, it has been indicating that Trump is the resident.

This is what led to the edit which puts both photo side by side. In addition to the photo, there is the information that technically, Obama is still president until trump is sworn in, at which point the office of the president and all the accounts that go with it will be transferred to him. Anyone who watched the page closely on the morning of the 20th will tell you that it changed back and forth between Trump and Obama as the POTUS at least 8 times in the morning. It is a great thing that only a few people are allowed to make edits because if you can imagine a situation where anyone gets the freedom to make an edit, the already tumultuous transition would get even dirtier.

This is a type of eventuality that can be avoided if you hire professionals to handle your Wikipedia edits. The entire editing process is followed by making sure that only the correct information about you has been put out there and that the content is reviewed regularly to avoid sneak edits by other users.


Before 2013, no one had any idea that movie star Kate Hudson had several entrepreneurial tricks up her sleeve. However, in just four years, she has managed to create a fashion empire worth $250 million.

 

When Hudson launched Fabletics, her athletic apparel brand, she was trying to bring convenient new shopping methods to women looking for athletic apparel items that were both stylish and functional enough for intense workouts. She capitalized on the up-and-coming “athleisure” trend, which refers to the trend of women wearing athletic apparel items outside of the gym. Fabletics offers a large variety of workout staples like sports bras and leggings in addition to more everyday items like jersey dresses and comfortably casual sweaters.

 

What made Fabletics unique from the start, however, was its creative business model. Fabletics apparel items can be purchased directly off of the brand’s website, but customers are encouraged to sign up to become VIP members. VIP members have the convenience of paying a flat monthly fee to receive a new full workout outfit that is shipped to their door each month. By subscribing to become a VIP member, customers pay less money per item, making the subscription an irresistible value.

 

The instant success of Fabletics inspired Hudson to launch a handful of brick-and-mortar stores throughout the country. Instead of relying on these stores solely for additional revenue, she introduced them as “reverse showrooms.” The “reverse showroom” strategy has been made famous by Apple. Customers visit physical stores to try out items they will later purchase online.

 

Although many fashion brands have closed their physical stores in order to focus on online revenue, Hudson saw an opportunity. By opening physical stores, customers can come in and try on pieces that they may have been undecided about while shopping online. When customers try an item on in the store, that item is added to their online shopping cart on the Fabletics website.

 

Additionally, customers are encouraged to sign up to become VIP members while they are in a Fabletics store. According to the company’s data, 25% of customers who have walked through Fabletics store doors have signed up to become VIP members.

 

Needless to say, Hudson’s strategy has paid off. The company continues to increase its sales each year. Hudson plans to open several more stores both in the United States and overseas over the next five years.

 

Hudson knows how to get people interested in her brand and she knows how to keep customers happy as well. Fabletics items have been praised by reviewers for their superior fit and quality. Women also turn to Fabletics to find athletic gear in their size as the company offers a wider range of sizes than most athletic apparel companies.

 

Kate Hudson has gone from a movie beauty queen to an entrepreneur with an undeniable understanding of business strategies. She currently has millions of Instagram followers who see her as a fitness expert and wellness guru. Her unique, down-to-earth persona has only added to her brand’s appeal.

 

With such impressive innovations and business strategies, Hudson’s company certainly has a bright future ahead.


Artist and performer Doug Levitt has recently continued his seemingly nonstop tour of the U.S. that forms the basis of ‘The Greyhound Diaries’ he has developed over the course of the 21st century that he embarked on in 2005. The success Doug has found as an artist has seen him perform at the Woody Guthrie Center, the Southern Poverty Law Center and many other iconic venues; a former TV news correspondent, Doug Levitt discussed how discovering the true level of poverty in the U.S. even before the 2008 economic downturn inspired him to develop ‘The Greyhound Diaries’ as an artistic project.

 

In discussing his work on ‘The Greyhound Diaries’, the Cornell University and London School of Economics graduate has often explained his view of life as changing when he stepped out of the major metropolitan areas of the U.S. that are often the focus for major news organizations; Levitt had already become a familiar face for many after working as a London based foreign correspondent for ABC, CNN, and NBC.

 

Having covered over 120,000 miles over more than a decade traveling by bus throughout the U.S. the Washington D.C. born artist has created more than 20,000 images from his travels that he admits opened his own eyes to the realities of life for millions of people across the nation. Poverty is a subject Doug Levitt believes is not one of the popular ones for news organizations to report on and feels his work plays an important role in recording the effects of the financial mismanagement of the U.S. economy prior to 2008; the bus journey’s Doug Levitt has embarked on have shown him that for many the effects of the recession of the early 21st century are still being felt.

 

Levitt continues to travel by bus looking for more stories to add to ‘The Greyhound Diaries’ and feels inspiration comes to him from the pioneering work of social commentators and artists of the 1930s. As the poverty rate continues to grow in the U.S., Doug Levitt continues to perform live and produce podcasts to show what life is really life living below the poverty line.


Hello, football fans! I have a quick question for you. How does making money while watching football sound? Awesome? I agree! If you have a few football teams you watch and a slight inkling for mathematics, how about playing the odds?

Spread betting is quickly becoming the most popular system of sports betting across the world. Spread betting isn’t your granddaddy’s “Win or Lose, All or Nothing” type of gambling, spread betting is using probability and statistics to bet on the overall outcome, and more importantly, the accuracy of the wager. If you’re standing there scratching your head, trying to remember all of the remedial math classes you took in high school, you can relax, spread betting is a relatively simple process.

Say you want to try your hand at football odds, excellent! I’ll give an example of how. Say I’m talking to my bookmaker, which websites like Covers usually provide, and he opens a spread that the Cowboys will be at a four point advantage over Green Bay in their next game. Mind you, Green Bay has a seven-game win streak, mainly because of Aaron Rogers’ outstanding talents (19 touchdowns) after a four-game losing streak. The potential gambler (me,) places a bet, I “take the points” for Green Bay. If you bet they win, and factor in Green Bay’s overall score, you beat the spread because the overall score is greater. That’s what we call a slam dunk.

The spread is usually, I usually stress, set up in half point increments/fractions to mitigate the possibility of a tie, or in betting terms a “Push.” If the outcome of the bet is a push, the game is labeled “no action, ” and no money is lost or won. This isn’t a desirable outcome for anyone because the bookmakers must refund all of the bets. This may not seem like a big deal, but if you consider factors such as overhead cost, aka a transaction cost, money will be lost. Lost money is just plain bad for business.

If you do decide to try your hand in NFL odds, make sure you do your research, find a reliable bookmaker, and learn as much as you can about the process of sports betting, you will be successful in this game. So learn, pick your teams, place your bets, and strap in for one wild ride!
