    I live in a house with my two dogs. They are usually the best two dogs in the world but recently they do nothing but bark and bark at the next door neighbors dogs. We have a male and female while the neighbors have two males. Our male is a seven month old puppy. He is so adorable and a french breed. The neighbors dogs are both rottweilers. It has become a huge problem as I have to check to make sure that they are not out there before I let our dogs out. If they are out there my nearly seventy year old self gets worn out as it literally take an hour to get them back into the house. All four dogs paws up on the fence barking their, fool heads, off. Once I get them inside I am exhausted. It is a huge struggle.

    The neighbor and I have considered putting a gate so the dogs can go between the two yards as they are so obnoxious. We do try our hardest not to let them out at the same time and my daughter even suggested that we go ahead and coordinate dog pee pee breaks. We have not done that yet. We do our best. So back about six months ago the strangest thing happened.

    First let me say that our yard is no more than 0.20 acre and so is the neighbors yard. So it is not huge and the dogs normally no exactly where each other are. So I open the door and let the dogs out and all of a sudden the bigger Rottie jumps over the fence clearing it by at least a foot and lands, in our yard. Our two dogs are outside roaming around the yard. The Rottweiler did not have any affect on the other two, in fact it was as if they didn’t even realize that they were in the same yard, mine! So if they are divided by a fence they bark and bark. If they are in the yard together then they don’t pay any mind to each other. We got the neighbor and she took him back over to her home but that was something else. It is not often that you see a dog loft the fence.

    Since this episode we have seen the dog hike over the fence into the front yard a couple times. I worry he will run into the street because I forget that they have an electric fence to keep him out of the street in the front.

    Sometimes I bring the neighbors dogs some Purina treats. The neighbor even started purchasing them to because the dogs both absolutely loves them. They must be tasty. The neighbor said that the rottweilers eat the Beneful wet dog food and really love it. She sometimes gives me coupons so that I can go ahead a buy the snacks at a discounted price. They truly enjoy them. We also never added a gate as lofting over the fence is quite an often occurrence.

    There are many ways that you can improve your skills of writing Wikipedia articles, but following the rules and writing up to the standards expected by Wikipedians and readers alike is one of the best ways to start. I will provide a few directions that you should start going in to improve your skills, if you are just now starting out.

    Do not use any words that the majority of readers might not understand. All ages of people use Wikipedias, coming from all over the world, and from all different levels of education. Do not write as if you are addressing a child, but write simply enough so everybody can understand what is going on in an article.

    People from all over the world use the Wikipedia services found on Get Your Wiki. Never use any slang terms that could offend people of different races, cultures, or nationalities. Writers should also avoid using slang terms because translators may have a hard time understanding what exactly the word means, and could interpret it as meaning something different.

    Never use information that you are not entirely sure is true. Wikipedia is an encyclopedia, which means that it should only contain factual and truthful information. If you see misleading or false information on another article, contact the last person who edited about it and share you concerns, or just go ahead and edit the article if you think it should be changed.

    Get Your Wiki is one of the best ways to get an article or other type of Wikipedia page to be written for you. They are able to give you a quote in 24 hours, and their services are priced very low. Get Your Wiki’s official website is www.GetYourWiki.com, where more information about the business can be located at, including a way to contact the company.

    If you happen to be writing about a fiction article, the page does not have to contain factual information that translates to the real world, but must be full of information that is true in the fictional world that the book takes place in.

    This goes for any type of writing, but spelling should always be correct. If you were somebody else who was reading an article you helped contribute to and there was a spelling discrepancy in the article, you might not want to keep reading because the whole article might be chock full of things that are misleading or simply not true.

    In the recent past, Slyce, a Toronto-based company has been able to raise $10.5 million in funding so as to improve on its phenomenal platform. Slyce is well known for its shopping image recognition on slyce technology that enables users to see products that they would like to own whether on the streets, shoot them with their smartphone cameras and search on retail outlets that have synchronized their inventory with the technology.

    Different with other similar technologies on the market, Slyce does not require that the photographed product be in its original package. This is because it has improved abilities, and it does not rely on only logo identification. The technology can identify products even when they are not in their original packaging because it tends to rely on the unique attributes of an item. This is because the company is looking into more than just offering the technology to retail outlets.

    Slyce has been partnering with major retailers who include five of the top twenty retailers in the United States when measured by volume and sales so as to ensure that the technology exceeds its expectations. The company has in the recent past been exploring opportunities to start using image recognition for customers so that they can tag mobile gift registry items and receive coupons by using their mobile phones.

    The company has combined an effective machine technology with a robust human crowd sourcing that has been very instrumental in changing the way people do shopping nowadays. When the technology is used, a lot of hassles that shoppers go through including having to visit the shopping location physically are done with. At the end of the day, the technology saves the shopper time and also gives them the freedom to spot an item they like and shop for it with just a few clicks on the phone.

    When it comes to the retailer’s end, the technology has proved to be very effective when matters related to enabling the retailer know which products are moving well in the inventory are concerned. This is because, at the end of every day, it provides a comprehensive report of the product searches conducted that plays a very big role in the retailer identifying what products need to be added in the inventory.

    The unique thing about Slyce is the fact that it exists as both a white label solution and an independent consumer app. It is also not confined to only the smartphone and users can use it on their desktops. It allows retailers to be always available at the consumer’s point of interest by enabling them do seamless shopping in an instant. With the technology, a consumer does not have to worry about how to make payment as it takes care of all those factors in a secure environment.

    Interest rates are being kept at zero in the United States. Investment banks are not entirely thrilled with this scenario. As long as interest rates remain at zero, the fiscal situation with investment banks remains tenuous.

    Is the Federal Reserve going to do what it has not done in a number of years and raise interest rates? This is a question that has been on everyone’s mind for a while. There is good reason why so many are pondering what “The Fed” will do. The raising of interest rates is could potentially lead to a downswing in the economy. An increase in interest rates in a tepid economy is not exactly going to help give the economic landscape a real boost. Investment banks, however, would experience an increase in revenue. This does not automatically mean the banks would be automatically profitable since effective management is always going to play a role in any company success. Still, seeing more money run into financial coffers is going to always be better than seeing fewer funds.

    Economists like Ken Griffin according to wallstreetjournal have been looking at the overall picture and the continual consensus is the Federal Reserve is likely to delay raising the rates. NBC News took a survey with 80 economists prior to a major Federal Reserve meeting. The results from the survey revealed 45 economists believed the rates would be delayed while 35 assumed interest rates would see an increase. The opinions of the former turned out to be correct. The Federal Reserve opted not to raise interest rates. The continual soft employment numbers in the United States play a major role in the delays. Raising rates could send the unemployment rate skyrocketing and force payroll figures to be unimpressive.

    The trouble investment banks run into, as Bloomberg News points out, is they cannot make as much money on loans or investments as they once did. A dynamic bank would have to work harder at bringing in new clients and, possibly, focus on smaller profits but from a larger number of clients. This is but one strategy. A well-managed investment bank surely could come up with additional plans.

    An investment bank with a top manager such as Ken C. Griffin would be in a good position to navigate the difficult waters of zero interest rates. Griffin is the CEO of Citadel, an investment firm that oversees roughly $25 billion in investment capital. The reach of Citadel is global as the firm deals with investments and partners all over the world.

    At some point, interest rates will increase. They cannot stay at zero forever. Regardless of what the figures on interest rates are, an investment bank has to be properly managed. A good manager is going to understand interest rates and economic landscapes change both for the better and the less-than-desirable.

    FreedomPop, a US telecoms firm that offers free 4G service, has entered the UK market, bringing competition to firms like of TalkTalk and Tesco Mobile, who are budget providers. FreedomPop’s settling in the UK marks the beginning of their international expansion plan that is venture capital-backed. After the payment of a one-off fee of £7, FreedomPop provides a monthly service consisting of 200 minutes of talk time, 200 texts and 200MB of mobile data. A market survey will also be presented to the subscribers and upon completion of the survey, the subscribers earn more free allowances. The company is a Mobile Virtual Network Operator and does not infrastructure such as mobile masts. It also aims to target the market segment that is conscious about prices. FreedomPop will buy capacity to provide to its subscribers from the Three network. According to Stephen Stokols, the Chief Executive, only half of the subscribers in the US buy extra capacity. He went on to state that the company only requires 50,000 initial subscribers. This will aid the company to be cash flow positive in the UK.

    FreedomPop was founded in 2011 in the US by Stephen Stokols. This was after a proposal was rejected by BT to launch in the UK on itunes.apple.com, the firm at the time headed by Gavin Patterson. Mr. Patterson acted as an advisor to FreedomPop but has had to abandon this of late as the company would compete directly with BT’s own mobile operation in the UK. BT in March rejoined the mobile market, pricing its products radically and beating expectation. BT later paid £12.5bn to buy out EE.

    FreedomPop is intent on reducing costs by spending as much traffic as possible over wifi networks as opposed to mobile networks. Mr. Stokols confirmed that would leave for the UK later on to try and enter into a contract with BT, his former employer, to strike a deal for access to the wifi network belonging to BT. Initially, FreedomPop will register its users online only, but Mr. Stokols confirmed that they were holding negotiations with two firms which are major high street retailers. The company goes ahead to claim that about a quarter million Britons showed expectation before the commercial launch and the company may have to put a limit on subscriptions in the first few months in order to manage its own growth.
