Italian Sunbathers Are Picky About Their Beach Spots

Reading time:

The Italians are known for being picky about a lot of things. They are the ultimate nationalists that protect their lifestyle at all costs and for good reason. The Italians know how to live. It may look strange to some people, but it’s life the Italian way, and it is as close to perfect as Italy’s political circus. That’s right. The Italians like drama. They like turmoil. The drama and the turmoil are engraved in their DNA. But when it comes to food, wine, clothes and shoes, the Italians are calm, cool, and collected. They are the ultimate snobs that look at other countries and wonder why the people live so strangely. Everyone should live the Italian way, according to the Italians, especially when they visit Italy. Visitors should know what Italian etiquette is. They should know that Italians share their country conditionally. It’s not a right to visit Italy. It’s a privilege granted by the people of Italy.

The beach is a sacred place for Italians, especially in August. The country shuts down during the month of August, so people can leave the cities and sunbath on their square inch of rough sand and talk about the government, the EU and the trials and tribulations of being a culture of excellence. But there is trouble on the beaches in Italy. Tourists are violating the Italian code of good beach behavior. The ancient ritual of crowding summer shorelines has been turned upside down by tourists that want to act Italian for a week or two. The tourists are stealing sunbathing spots, and they are doing it at night. In the Tuscan resort of Livorno, 30 umbrellas and beach chairs were seized along with towels and beachwear that were in the wrong spot on the 100-meter strip of sand at that resort. In the South of Italy, 200 umbrellas and beach chairs were seized.

But the culprits are not only unaware tourists. They are unscrupulous Italian umbrella operators that try to rip off tourists. Friends and relatives of sun seekers also try to occupy cherished spots early in the morning before the chosen sunbather gets there. But the coast guard is taking action, according to an article published by Perpetrators that dare invade sunbathers’ spots could be fined $220 for such a un-Italian act.

Dr. Clay Siegall has been appointed to the Board of Directors of Mirna Therapeutics, a biotech firm based in Austin, Texas. Dr. Clay Siegall, the CEO of Seattle Genetics, will serve as an outside director on the board. In addition, Dr. Siegall serves on the board of Alder BioPharmaceuticals. Mirna, which specializes in microRNA-based therapeutics in cancer research, has an extensive portfolio of potential products.

MicroRNAs (or MiRNAs) are chains of 20-25 nucleotides that alter gene expression through their interaction with messenger RNA. MiRNAs account for 2% of all mammalian genetics. Dysfunction in normal MiRNA processes is a major factor in the development of cancer, and therapy which replaces dysregulated RNAs has shown enormous potential in cancer treatment.

Dr. Siegall founded Seattle Genetics to explore antibody therapies in cancer treatment. Their main product, ADCETRIS, was approved by the FDA in 2011, and has already gained approval in over 60 countries. In addition, the company has raised over $657 million in financing since its original IPO. Seattle Genetics focuses on Antibody Drug Coagulates (ADCs), and under Dr. Siegall’s leadership, major pharmaceutical companies have licensed Seattle Genetics’ technology. Licensees include Roche, GlaxoSmithKline, and Pfizer.

Dr. Siegall was formerly a researcher at Bristol-Myers Squibb as well as the National Cancer Institute and the National Institutes of Health. He holds a degree in Zoology from the University of Maryland and a PhD in Genetics from George Washington University in Washington, DC. He has over 70 publications to his name as a scientific researcher.

Nutrimost is a diet plan that has revolutionized the industry. The company strives to treat the health of the entire body and get them away from relying on pharmaceutical methods of treating the aches and pains. They also want people to quit using medicine as a way to help them lose weight. That is why they developed their Ultimate Weight Loss Plan. The Plan uses the Nutrimost Resonant frequency to help diagnose a person’s issues and help them lose weight.

The plan has seen a lot of success in the short time of its existence. People are attracted to it because of the reasons that are listed above. One top of that, the plan is successful because of the great results that is has been getting for some of its clients. One couple reportedly lost over 100 lbs combined on the plan in just their first 3 months trying it together. These results, combined with the method, are why the company has had so much success early. It is also the reason that they say that other companies are trying to capitalize off of their success.

They are currently suing the weight loss company Healthy Living for pirating a video from their website and posting it to their own site for promotional purposes. It is hard to dispute the claim when one takes the time to watch both videos. They are almost exactly alike except for a few subtle changes.

As a result of this, Nutrimost sent a cease and desist letter to the company last fall asking them to take down the video. Healthy Living responded by taking the video and replacing it with a video that as slightly altered from what they had originally done. This did not satisfy Nutrimost as they are now suing the company for $300,000 for damages to their reputation.

Bernardo Chua: Turkey Welcomes Health in a Cup of Coffee

Reading time:

Update August 25th:
Bernardo Chua and Organo Gold have just announced Organo Gold EXPO 2016 will take place in Tampa, Florida September 3-4th. If you would like to attend you can check out the official Organo Gold expo website, which can be found through this link.

Turkey has just welcomed Organo Gold into the country, which marks the 39th country where Organo Gold has made a splash. The founder, Bernardo Chua, is both happy and excited to be able to bring Organo Gold to a new culture while acknowledging the road he took to get to this position.

Who Is Bernardo T. Chua?

Bernardo Chua is a self-made natural marketer, which he used to travel from his native Philippines to California (though this did not happen overnight). CrunchBase shows that Chua first worked as an executive at Gano Exel in the Philippines. He helped market and expand the small company towards China and beyond.

This is how Chua knew he had the ability to expand a product beyond a local market. And it was this skill that made Chua believe he could sell gourmet coffee that contained healthy ingredients to the world. Organo Gold was born from his desire to help people and his skill to market a product.

How the Decision to Open in Turkey Came About

Chua, in essence, wanted Organo Gold to be available to a bigger market. This was as much about helping people as it was about expanding the business. There were a lot of reasons that Chua described when speaking to the company, for why he wanted Organo Gold to touch Turkey land, including the fact that it helps unite the entire operation in the Asian, European, and African region. This gives Organo Gold a greater opportunity ease distribution amongst the regions.

Chua also noticed that there is a rapidly growing hunger in Turkey for healthier options, which is perfect for Organo Gold. Coffee in Turkey before Organo Gold will quickly become a dull and distant part of history for the people of Turkey.

What Can Turkey Expect From Organo Gold?

Organo Gold promises its entire line to the country that will include Gourmet Black Coffee, Gourmet Mocha, Gourmet Latte, Gourmet Hot Chocolate, King of Coffee, Espresso UNO, Espresso DUE and Espresso TRE, just to name a few.

The people of Turkey will love that every coffee option contains Ganoderma extracts. Ganoderma is a mushroom with medicinal properties that have been recorded for centuries and is part of traditional Chinese medicine. Chinese medicine used the mushroom to protect people from cancer, immune problems, bacteria, viruses, and fungus.

It is obvious the people of Turkey will be satisfied with Organo Gold and its natural ability to protect them from several types of ailments without sacrificing the taste of good coffee.
