Which Is More Cost-Effective, Cabs or Car Rentals?

Rent it or cab it?

People like the freedom of having their own vehicle to drive about in, at home or when they travel, and the tendency is to book a rental car when you are away. But freedom comes with a price and it depends where your travel destination is as to whether you’re best to rent a car or take a taxi.

Cheap ground transportation depends upon location, accessibility and extraneous expense factors, like gasoline costs and parking fees. Add to that the potential complexity of finding your way around a strange city, especially a large one, and you might change your mind about what freedom means.

A trip to, for example, New York City or Montreal, two North American cities with decent public transit systems, plenty of cabs, walkable areas in their cores, and very high parking fees, and you’ll realize that a taxi will almost inevitably surface as the cheapest mode of getting around.

But what if you want a day trip to the Laurentian Mountains or the antiques stores of Hudson? That’s the day to rent a car, or to find out if there is a luxury coach service to those destinations that returns the same day.

Car rentals are convenient, to be sure, but the costs add up quickly (don’t forget insurance and occasional peak-season added fees), unless your airline points cover all or most of the cost; even then, in large cities gasoline and parking is very costly, and that is not usually included in credit card or airline rewards perquisites.

When does a rental car make sense? If you live in North America (and can’t drive across the Atlantic Ocean!) and are vacationing in Italy, for example, landing in Rome and taking a motorcar tour of Tuscany and other regions from there, your only other viable option is the train. Like anywhere else, gasoline in Europe is expensive, but you can’t take a full driving holiday in a taxi. But don’t forget, there are guided tours and some taxi drivers will gladly spend a day with you, exploring San Gimignano; they are often the best tour guides, full of information about their homeland. And driving in other countries can be a harrowing experience, especially if it involves driving on the opposite side of the road than you are accustomed to!

Plan your itinerary, do an accurate cost comparison and decide whether a taxi or car rental, or combination of the two, is the cheapest way to get around when you reach your destination. And don’t forget to ensure that your driver’s license is current, and if you need to, get an international license before you set off for your trip. Happy motoring!

Benefits Of A Travel Nurse

The nursing career has been one of the most in demand jobs these days. There are so many people taking up nursing because of the job security that it provides to the people. There is only one disadvantage with this, and that is you will have a hard time choosing the field that you want.

One of the best nursing careers that people are considering is becoming travel nurse. This career is the most interesting and fun nursing career there is. Do not worry, because you will still be able to fulfil your dream of becoming a nurse and helping people. Anyone can be a travel nurse, as long as she is willing to work in a far place, then this is a perfect choice for you.

There are really some places where the supply of nurses is very scarce. Due to the high demand for nursing, there are really some places which find it hard to cater to this demand. As a result, these hospitals hire nurses from other places where the supply if nurses is high.

What is so unique about this field is that you will get to travel to different places. This is why it is perfect for nurses who would love to travel to far places. Part of travelling includes learning about different cultures. This is one thing that you can get when you work as a travel nurse. You will be able to work with doctors, nurses and patients who have grown up with a different culture. The sights in foreign places are a must-see when you work as a travel nurse. This is a privilege which you can enjoy once you are working abroad.

The work of a nurse can range from a temporary to a permanent job. They can be assigned just to fill in temporarily for the vacancies in the hospital for at least 8 weeks and can go on for months. There are times when the nurses are hired permanently because they have shown a good performance in their work. This decision depends on you and your employer if you are willing to work there permanently.

There are agencies which recruit nurses and send them to different locations. It is always recommended for aspiring travelling nurses to apply to these agencies for a number of reasons. They have the contacts of the top hospitals where you will be able to work in. You will have more chances of getting into these hospitals when you apply for an agency rather than finding the job on your own. They will also be the one to fix your papers when you are ready to work for the hospitals. You passports, licenses and documents will be ready in no time.

Agencies offer compensation for nurses who wish to work abroad. They will be in charge of the expenses for the lodging, accommodations, transport and even travel facilities. You do not need to search for a place to stay because these agencies already give you a house when you get there. You do not have to spend money on these things which can really be advantageous for you. You even receive allowances besides from your salary. Various insurances are also included in your compensation packages. There are health as well as retirement insurances which you can get from these agencies.

It is always good to try to apply to nursing agencies because they ensure that you are well taken care of. They do not only provide you with work, but they also make sure that you will still be taken care of a even after you retire.

One important thing about travel nurses is the salary that they receive. Their pay on the average is about $20 to $40 a day. Besides from this, they are often paid during day-off from work. See why travel nursing has been one of the most chosen nursing careers there is?

If you are thinking of choosing this career, you must be ready to live alone. Most travel nurses often get homesick so you need to be ready to face this. There are certain ways in which you can deal with this, so make sure that you are prepared to deal with this. You can enjoy the place and make new friends. You can explore the sights and places and enjoy travelling alone. You can make friends and do this together.

Since you will face a whole new set of people, culture and places, it can be beneficial if you gather a little information about them. This will be a lot easier for you when you get there. You can learn a little about their language so that you can speak a little and understand some of the words they use.

One more tip is that you should go the place at least a week before the date when you will start to work. This will allow you to adjust to the environment there. If the time zones are different, you may need a few days to adjust your sleeping time. Also, you can familiarize with the route that you will take going to work or to the marketplace. These are the things which will help you when you work there. This will cause you to start your first day at work smoothly and will prevent you from having any delays.

This is one of the few careers that will be able to allow you to travel and at the same time earn money. So if you are unsure which career path you will take, work as a travel nurse and you will not regret your decision.

High Cost of Healthcare Induced By Contradictory Goals of Providers and Payers

Healthcare has been the topic of debate for most of the last few years. From the boardroom to the water cooler, costs and quality of care are hot topics that impact everyone in this country. Young and old, Americans are feeling the squeeze and most are finding it difficult to come up with solutions. In the boardrooms of corporations both large and small, employers are struggling to cope with reality of rising premiums and declining benefits. Meanwhile employees are left with the prospect of going without health insurance. Currently it is estimated that 50 to 60 million adults in this country are walking the tightrope of living without health insurance. With such widespread reach for ripples created by this healthcare debacle, everyone is looking for answers. How can we afford coverage? Can we go without? What can be done to curb the costs and get this problem under control?

In the workplace, employers and employees often feel as if they’re on opposite sides of the fence. Employers feel as if their subordinates take no consideration of how difficult it can be to turn a profit while facing spiraling costs and a difficult economic environment. While large corporations may be able to ride out the storm, small businesses rarely have this luxury (especially at a time when credit is difficult to obtain). Most small businesses would close their doors if the balance sheet goes in the red for more than a few months or quarters. On the other hand, employees often adopt a near-sighted approach. How could they expect me to afford a premium increase? Should I just try to float without insurance for a while? These questions often lead to resentment on both sides of the coin, but are the employers or employees to take the blame and the higher cost?

Looking for answers to this growing problem is not easy. Where did the system go wrong? Why is it so expensive? Who’s to blame?

Many people blame healthcare providers for the rising costs of quality care. I can assure you this is not the case. Providers are facing a myriad of challenges and roadblocks. More so than ever, running a profitable medical practice is daunting task. Like any other business, a medical practice will close if it can not cover expenses and afford to pay salaries. Labor and leasing expenses are only the tip of the iceberg. Practitioners are forced to pay for equipment, insurance, hardware, software, licensing, and more. After establishing an office with all the appropriate resources, medical practices and hospitals must then attract patients in a very competitive marketplace.

Yet with all these costs and challenges in their way, healthcare providers are not complaining about patients or labor or costs! The largest problem facing healthcare providers is the insurance reimbursement process. Contradictory goals of payers and providers are resulting in inefficient and difficult payment systems. Insurance companies are more concerned with bottom-line profits and shareholders than they are about the care their members receive. How can we expect doctors and healthcare providers to keep their offices open if they can hardly get paid for the services they perform? Individuals believe that because they pay premiums, the insurance company will pay their doctor. Unfortunately, this is hardly the case. Health insurance claim denial rates can reach as high as 25% or more. Many providers have outstanding receivables measured in the millions of dollars. The insurance reimbursement process is so arduous that many medical practices never get paid and as a result close their doors forever.

Insurance companies use a wide variety of tactics to delay payments and deny claims. Payers employ hoards of representatives charged with the task of fielding calls and scrutinizing claims. Due to these tactics, insurance claims take anywhere from 30 days to more than 1 year to reach a completed status. In most cases claims are delayed and denied due to inconsequential, irrelevant errors. These errors result solely from the many difficult and senseless hoops that are placed in the way of the provider’s billing representatives. This extremely labor intensive process of collecting from insurance companies costs providers a great deal of time and money.

The only beneficiaries of this process are the shareholders of insurance companies. The delays in payments result in interest earned for the time period in which the claim was delayed. In many cases, providers never receive reimbursement for the services they perform. These claims must be written-off as a loss by providers while insurance companies see these cases as victories leaving more cash on their balance sheets. It appears that the primary goal of insurance companies may be to deny as many claims as possible; after all they answer to shareholders not providers or individual policy holders. This gross abuse of power by insurance companies may be the biggest problem we face in the healthcare sector.

The days when doctors sat on golf courses all day while making millions per year are over. Now they must battle insurance companies tooth and nail for every claim. If insurance companies paid doctors for the services they perform, perhaps we would see a reduction in costs related to providing care.

Surely there is no easy fix to this problem. We may find the answers by addressing the goals of big insurance companies. Providing oversight and incentives for paying healthcare providers for the services they perform would be a good start. If insurance companies focus on weeding out fraud rather than just delaying and denying payments, we could see an increase in efficiency and productivity in the healthcare sector that could be the start of controlling costs while maintaining a high standard of care. For the sake of all Americans, hopefully we find an answer soon!

Activity Internet Report, Part-Time Internet Marketing

Before I start on this one, it may be well to remember the saying,
“where is the best place to meet the high and mighty high?”
hey, at most New Years Eve Parties.

If you want to read a article written by a Internet Guru or English
Professor you can stop reading now. If you’re looking for honest
Internet Information in plain everyday writing this is for you. Read
on, this could save you a bundle and give you enough information to
start part time Marketing on the internet.

I found out the hard way that Internet business opportunities are
almost never all they’re cracked up to be. The only persons who benefit
from the opportunities are the people who start the programs and a
few friends at the top.

Seen all those ads with images of luxury cars, boats, and house? This
is the image of high life you can have if you join a MLM opportunity.
If you believe the above I have a beautiful famous bridge in San
Francisco I want to sell, cheap, doesn’t wait, today only.

As a newbie to the Internet (joining after years of retirement), with 40
years of successful publishing, printing, business off line, it makes
me sick to think people would believe this. Yeh, just join this MLM and
in two months you will be building a luxury house next to Bill Gates.

Scams after scam try to make people believe that pyramid selling laws
just doesn’t apply to the Internet. Many so-called marketers are not just
sneaky, but are out and out liars.

Further, very few offer any sort of resources to help you. To make
matters worst, they make you feel like a real “dumbie” by e-mailing you
2 days after joining, wondering why you haven’t signed up at the very
least 100 members. They make it look like it’s your fault you have not
yet earned enough to pay for that lot next to Bill Gates.

Their scams have given the Internet a real bad name. Just mention to a
friend or work mate about joining or buying something on the Internet.
I will bet you 90% will just change the subject or walk away. So many
persons got sucked into some of these get rich scams that the average
person will not trust the Internet when it comes to buying products,
services.

Webmasters who are now on the web work overtime, researching, and
building trust, which enables them to sell on the Internet.

They know success does not come overnight. They have to work hard,
be persistent, teachable, research. They have to make the effort and
a little bit of cash helps.

If you intend on making a living on the Internet start out part time.
The failing rate on the Internet is over 94 percent, mostly because
they buy into the MLM Marketer that promises all you have to do
is join as a paid member.

In your dealings with others, make sure you have proper disclosures as
required by law. To be an effective marketer, don’t be untruthful, make
false, misleading statements. Further remember you are responsible
for statements made by the MLM marketer if you are an affiliate selling
for them. You too could be charged and fined along with the MLM
you are promoting.

To make sure you are following the regulations for advertisements, and
other rules and regulations check out the following at FTP.

* Clear and Conspicuous Disclosures in Online Advertisements

* Specific Issues in Applying Certain Rules and Guides to Internet Activities.

PROTECT YOUR COMPUTER AND MONEY

Here are a few steps you can take to be on the safe side. If your email
program has the option to automatically download attachments, make sure
it is turned off.

Check and make sure your Anti Virus is up to date.

If you have to open an attachment, save the file to your computer or
a disk.

Manually scan the file using up-to-date Anti Virus.

Remember scammers use fake websites, mail redirects. Before sending
any money check it out first. Never just click on the URL provided.
Type in the URL manually.

If you receive an email with the heading Paypal, Clickbank etc., asking
you to confirm your user, password, remember they already have this
information and would not be asking you for it.

YOUR INTERNET “BANK” PAYPAL

If you buy or sell on the Internet, you need a secure reliable firm
for sending,accepting payments online. Paypal (owed by e bay) is one
of the preferred ways of sending or receiving cash online. You are
notified within minutes when you pay, buy or send money. Never trust
using your cards on the Internet. By the time you get your monthly
statement hundreds of dollars could be charged to your account. Play
it save. Get a free account with PayPal today!
https://www.paypal.com/row/mrb/pal=EMXEHEG6CP2TY

I started as an affiliate but it has a lot of drawbacks. Sure they
will supply you with a free website, but then you know there are
hundreds all the same. Search engines as a rule will not list affiliate
sites.

Further, the URL given to you to promote with are long, ugly, and it’s
easy to steal your commission. Any one that may have wanted to join or
buy the product your promoting will just cut off your ID code and join.
You lose the commission and an affiliate. Plus the biggest draw back is
you don’t get a list of the persons you promote for the firm.

If you do want to sell a product for a MLM make sure you check them out.
Then you need to get the script that will shorten the URL you are given
to promote with, or learn how to clone the URL so your commission is not
stolen. Join a couple forums, and ask if anyone could give you the
script to be able to do either of the above. Most people in forums will
help because it also gives them a plug.

What business do you know (other then an Internet MLM) gets you to pay for
their advertising and work for free? You’re better off to set up your
own web site and promote as a reseller or get and sell your own products.
This way you can build up your own list.

I hate to admit this but for some reason I got tunnel vision when it came
marketing as an affiliate. I learned how to get free hits to my site, got
number 1 to 8 listing in MSN, Yahoo, Googl for my key words. in fact
have from 2 to 6 listing in each of the top 10 listing for all three of
the above search engines. My hits for December were over 2 million, yet
because I was selling for MLM’s without cloning my URL,just made enough
to cover my expenses.

No person told me everyone could tell I was a newbie and a dummie when
they saw my affiliate URL, not cloned. They would cut off the ID number
at the end if they were interested in the product I was selling, get the
commission that should have been mine, plus what hurt more was I lost an affiliate.

The cost of setting up a web site is minimum. Should you go this route I
highly recommend Robyn at:

No, I have no personal interest in myfriendlyhost, nor do I get any commission
from Robyn for listing her site. Without Robyn’s help I would have quit the Internet.
She is one of the few persons on the Internet who helped me, without
asking for money first.

LIGHTSIDE

Now lets see if we can get you to grin again by checking out some of
these great quotes;

“if we let loggers go in and cut down the trees we wouldn’t have a
problem with forest fires”- George Bush

I only hope our Premier Gordon Campbell does not see this. He is just
liable to take Mr. Bush’s advice. With all the forest fires we have here
in BC, Greenpeace would really see some clearcuts.

“that lowdown scoundrel deserves to be kicked to death by a jackass,
and I’m just the one to do it” -A congressional candidate in Texas.

By any chance was Mr Bush ever a candidate in Texas??

My best pick;
“if someone has a bad heart, they plug this jack in at night as
they go to bed and it will monitor their heart throughout the
night. And next morning when they wake up dead, there’ll be a
record”- Mark S. Fowler, FCC Chairman.

Just goes to prove we all are humans, make mistakes and when it’s
the other person’s slip-up, enjoy it.

None of the free listings below are mine, nor am I a affiliate of any
of the listings. They are listed for your benefit only.

You should also consider selling via ebay. They first started in 1995,
and I am sure few people would have believed they would have over 157
million members worldwide today.

Thousands of persons are making a good living today selling on eBay.
They give you a lot of support with free information, tools and
resources. Really a great way to start on the Internet part-time, as
you have control on the hours you want to spend to make it work.

Cookie Decorating and Cocktails: Themed Parties For the Holiday Season

The holidays are upon us, and one of the most timeless, beloved traditions is cookie decorating before Christmas time. Instead of setting aside an afternoon to bake batch after batch of Christmas cookies, why not plan a full-blown cookie decorating party to include friends and family?

How a Cookie Decorating Party Works

A cookie decorating party can work in one of two ways. You can ask all guests to bring their own favorite cookies, undecorated, to the party for a group decorating project. Or, you can ask guests to pitch in and make batches of cookies in your kitchen that you can all decorate together once they cool, fresh out of the oven.

For a smaller gathering with a few friends, baking cookies and decorating together will work well. For a larger party of five or more, it’s a better idea to ask guests to bring their own undecorated cookies so you don’t have to worry about squeezing a large group into a crowded, hot kitchen to bake cookies together.

To plan ahead, make sure that you have all of the necessary decorating supplies set up in advance in different stations throughout the room, including:

• Aprons or smocks
• Paper towels
• Tubes of icing in different colors
• Sprinkles and other assorted decorations
• Food coloring
• Small paintbrushes

From there, it’s time to get cracking! Guests can decorate plain cookies of their choice with different icings and assorted decorations, like sprinkles, chocolate chips, M&Ms, crushed peppermint, and more. You may also choose to splurge on fancy holiday cookie decorations like colored sugar, silver ball candies, and cinnamon hearts.

All of the decorations can be set up in individual bowls for use at each decorating station. Guests can also create their own colored icing with food coloring to paint different designs on each cookie using a small paintbrush.

Adult Beverages for Cookie Decorating

If this is an adults-only party, you have the perfect opportunity to pair holiday cookies with delicious seasonal cocktails to enjoy throughout the decorating process. Depending upon the type of cookies that you decorate, whether they’re plain sugar cookies, snickerdoodles, or even peanut butter cookies, you can pair your holiday drinks accordingly.

Decorated holiday sugar cookies will go well with a warm beverage like Irish Coffee or spiked cider. You can also make a large batch of alcoholic holiday punch with flavors of cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg, served chilled and topped with a splash of cranberry juice and sparkling wine.

For more flavorful cookies, like peanut butter or snickerdoodle, serve a refreshing holiday favorite like mulled wine, peppermint martinis, or rich yet satisfying alcoholic eggnog.

For an adult-themed cookie decorating holiday bash, make sure to provide guests with the convenience of arranging transportation to and from the venue with a limo rental or luxury town car. This will allow guests to ride safely to and from the party destination so that they can enjoy a few holiday cocktails without having to worry about driving home at the end of the evening. ‘Tis the season!

Housing Options For Travel Nursing Jobs – What You Need to Know

There’s no question about it: as a career choice, travel nursing is hot. The field is growing and there’s a growing need for new travel nurses. There are many advantages to nursing: it’s a great way to meet new people, help others and of course, it’s a great way to see the country.

However, the excessive amount of trekking involved in most travel nursing jobs raises some important issues about housing and lodging. There are several aspects to the housing issue that anyone considering a career as a travel nurse should consider. Where do people with these jobs stay? Do they rent? Do they stay in sublet housing? Will the hospital or facility that fills travel job positions supply housing? Housing questions are important to anyone who wants to take on these nursing jobs.

Many companies that act as a source for travel nursing jobs will be able to provide housing. Although that may make things easy for those with travel nursing jobs, those companies will also include the option for the health professional to choose his or her own dwelling. Many companies that connect nurses to travel nursing jobs will also offer a stipend, or an allowance, which can be used towards paying for housing. The amount of these stipends will usually depend on certain IRS guidelines, which are used to determine the cost of living in a particular area. Nursing jobs in a city where rent is higher, like Miami, will have a higher stipend than jobs in Bismarck, North Dakota. Oftentimes, those with shorter-term travel nursing jobs may prefer a stipend if their assignment is less than 13 weeks since the shortest lease available for most conventional housing rental or subletting options is three months.

The other most common option, as mentioned above, is to stay in housing provided by a company that provides recruiting for travel nursing jobs. This significantly reduces the hassle associated with finding living quarters. In many larger cities, the travel nursing recruiting firm may have several options to choose. In sparsely-populated rural areas, there may be only one or two living area locations. Most of the time, the living space provided by the companies offering travel nursing jobs are in apartment complexes; however, those taking travel nursing jobs may find themselves in single family homes, mobile homes, extended stay facilities, or even in living quarters provided by the hospital where they are assigned.

One great perk with travel nursing jobs is the ability for nurses to select their own destinations to work. Moreover, many persons who are assigned a living space that is not to their liking, can render an assignment most unenjoyable. Therefore, it is important for those accepting travel nursing jobs to talk with the company connecting them to the job about the housing situation. When you let the staffing agency know the types of places you would prefer to stay, you’ll make the assignment process easier for both parties.

When choosing places to stay during travel nursing jobs assignments, also be sure to consider things like distance. Most like jobs that are close to the hospital or facility where they are assigned. However, if the assignment is in an unsafe neighborhood or a noisy neighborhood, then securing a space that is a little farther away might be worth the peace of mind it will offer. Remember, many travel nursing jobs are for nighttime shifts, and those who have worked several nurse jobs know that getting a full night’s (or day’s) rest is crucial.

Finding a place to stay may not be the end of the process for finding living quarters during travel assignments. Many apartments or houses may not be furnished. Some staffing companies will be able to connect you to a trusted furniture rental company. Many can also provide professional interior decorators and buyers who can ensure your furniture is attractive and of decent quality. These people can be incredibly helpful, as many people on travel nursing jobs assignments won’t want to tolerate mismatched furniture, but they will probably be too preoccupied with getting acclimated to the new assignment to go furniture shopping too.

Along with furniture, those taking on travel nursing assignments won’t want to forget about housewares either. Although not all temporary living spaces will come with the bowls, cups and silverware needed to make living and cooking at home possible, your living quarters should have all the necessities that will allow you to live comfortably. Ask the staffing agency about travel health jobs and locations that have fully furnished living quarters; they should make it easy for you. Most companies that offer travel nursing jobs will be able to have everything in order by the time you arrive. However, sometimes there are bumps in the process. Arriving to an unfurnished apartment can be a very unpleasant surprise; you deserve to be informed by the company if there are any changes.

The task of locating good living conditions isn’t necessarily a simple one, but experienced travel nurses who have taken travel health assignments in a range of locations with the most reputable companies will tell you more often than not, their living arrangements are handled without a hitch. After all, as a person on a travel nurse job assignment, you will be working hard to help others-you deserve to stay in housing that is as satisfying as possible.

Laparoscopic Surgical Instruments

Pacing the Trocar in its correct spot is one of the most crucial procedures of laparoscopic surgery for your medical instrument. Many crucial problems have been reported as a result of incorrect placement of laparoscopic instruments. You need to make positively sure that you are placing the trocar correctly.

Their is so many different types of trocars on the marketplace, some of the most easiest to use are the trocars with the safety mechanisms with robust blades. While basic handling is the same for most trocars, it is important to understand the different functions of the different types.

Laparoscopy approach, When pressing to see if the space can be entered you should view the area through another trocar to be positive that the space can be entered safely. Make sure the patient is free from abdominal wall vessels, darkened the room and view the area under transmitted light. Hold the trocar perpendicular to the abdominal wall. Stretch your finger along the length of the trocar while using your other hand to provide support and prevent accidentally going in to deep. twist and trun the trocar, while maintaining even force until the tip passes through the wall. When using your medical equipment try not to press to hard. Hard pressure may shrink the internal space, increasing the risk of hitting an organ and causing damage. Once the tip is passed through adjust its direction so that it points to an area of open space and press it in further. Locking the safety mechanism will help decrease the risk. However some trocars do not have a lock mechanism safety. You need to be especially careful when inserting this sort of device. A malacar trocar is the best for this operation. It has a self-securing lock you can use during the procedure.

Kakadu Juice – The World's Most Powerful Antioxidants!

Scientists from Sydney discover a Native Australian Bush Food that is many times more nutrient dense than Goji Berries, contains over 300% the level of antioxidants in Blueberries and is a highly rich ‘Uncategorized’ source of Folic Acid and Iron and this “New Australian Health Product” – “Kadadu Juice” containing Native Bush Foods could make many modern-day nutritional supplements obsolete!

From some of the world’s harshest landscapes ~ comes the world’s most nutritious plant foods like:

Kakadu Plum which holds the World Record for Vitamin C content, Tasmanian Pepper Berry hailed as the World’s Strongest Antioxidant food and a polygodial-rich food plant traditionally used as a bush medicine by indigenous Aboriginals of Australia. illawarra plum A very close rival to the pepper berry for the title of strongest antioxidant. Plus a host of other super potent plant foods like; Blueberries, Quandong, Wild Rosella, Acai, Goji, Mangosteen, Pomegranate, Green Tea, Cherry, Flax, Barley Grass, and Grape Seed.

One major thing that separates Kakadu Juice from many of the competing brands is that it is the first product to release that is not 60% or more plain water. It is the first truly concentrated product with real value for money. Secondly Kakadu Juice contains a unique blend of very powerful native bush foods. Thirdly it is a complete product, not just an antioxidant, or a vitamin product but a rich source of all the major essential nutrients. See [http://www.SuperWonderJuice.com] for more information. Fourthly it is proudly Australian.

Australia’s unique wild plant foods have sustained the world’s longest living culture ~ the Australian Aborigines for thousands of years. The health benefits of these fruits, herbs and spices are gaining global attention as emerging research reveals record levels of Uncategorized Vitamins, Antioxidants and Unique Phytonutrients.

Now after many years of research, testing and development, these newly recognised, world-leading Australian food plants are blended with exotic foods from around the world in an exquisite nutrient dense SUPER BEVERAGE known as (see front cover photo) Kakadu Juice.

Can Kakadu Juice make you healthy and wealthy?

Well, consider this quote from the book “The Wellness Revolution – How to Make a Fortune in the Next TRILLION DOLLAR INDUSTRY” where author Paul Zane Pilzer says “Teaching consumers about such products and services, intellectual distribution, is the greatest opportunity now and for the foreseeable future”.

The Wellness Revolution is here and Australia is staking its claim with a world-beating functional food beverage that offers a refreshing mix of innovation, integrity and value for money in an industry tired of the ‘hot air’ that seems to keep many direct sales companies afloat. Kakadu International has created a no-hype opportunity for people to stake their own claim in the burgeoning Wellness Industry by offering ordinary people a way to get involved with a great Australian company and learn how to create additional income from drinking and sharing Nature’s tastiest liquid bounty.

Thanks to the work of dedicated people like Dr. Kowalski, Vic Cherikoff and the tireless efforts of those in the CSIRO and other home-grown agencies, awareness of and the subsequent demand for Australian Bush Foods has created a viable industry that is now established and thriving. In similar fashion to the progressive growth of the Organics industry, Australian Bush Foods are now experiencing an organic growth all of their own.

With the emergence of scientific research into the Native Bush Foods, they’ve entered the record books for their nutritional and medicinal potency – something that Wellness industry entrepreneurs have a very healthy interest in. As a pioneer in this emerging sector of the Australian economy, Kakadu International, creators of Kakadu Juice, is proud of the knowledge that every bottle of Kakadu Juice is not only making people healthier but also providing employment for Aboriginal Australians.

The Australian Outback is one of the last pristine wilderness areas of the world. Wild harvesting of bush foods from this region relies on ancient Aboriginal knowledge of healing foods meshed with the modern practical skills of how to transport, process and distribute these foods in a way where nutritional vitality is…vital.

Remember the first vital rule to success in Network Marketing is you must have a very unique and highly consumable product that can not be obtained from anywhere else. Historically the most successful Network Marketers made their fortunes with nutritional products. Unfortunately many of them are overhyped, overpriced supplements that do little more than create expensive urine and some studies indicate do far more harm than good. This results in mass public confusion because one month we read how one thing protects us and a month later we read another study that the same synthetic supplement raises your chances of disease and premature death. Who do you believe and trust? The big pharmaceutical and supplement manufactures or the wisdom of Mother Nature?

The Truth About Supplements

The Dirty Secret Supplement Makers Hope You’ll Never Discover The overwhelming number of supplements on offer can leave many consumers feeling confused and frustrated; not daring enough to venture into the local health shop without first getting a degree in biochemistry! If that’s you, then you’ll be glad to hear the good news which is, there’s really only 2 kinds of supplements to choose from; those that are completely Uncategorized and those that are not.

The hard part is knowing the difference. Since the World became aware of “Uncategorized is better”, supplement companies have done everything in their power to convince you that their product is either “Uncategorized” or is so high-tech that it’s now “better” than Uncategorized. The truth is that the vast majority of nutrition supplements actually don’t contain any real nutrients, instead they’re made from cheap synthetic chemicals. A lot of slick marketing has led the Nature-seeking public to buy chemical products, with questionable results. How did we get it so wrong?

A Brief History of Vitamins

The ancient Egyptians noted that night blindness (vitamin A deficiency) could be cured by adding certain foods to the diet. In 1747 James Lind, a Scottish Naval Surgeon made the connection between a lack of citrus fruit intake and sailors developing scurvy. In 1905, Englishman William Fletcher discovered there were ‘special factors’ Uncategorizedly present in whole food that when processed away, resulted in disease. A few years later a Polish scientist named Funk identified these special factors and called them “vitamins”….or did he? He identified what he thought were the special factors that prevent disease; in fact, these Funky “vitamins” were only single molecules, a small part of the whole. The scientific methods available to Funk were fairly crude, no mass spectrometers, no electron microscopes or particle accelerators; science not sophisticated enough to correctly identify the complete structure of a vitamin.

Your body DOES know the difference Vitamins in Nature do not exist as isolated molecules. A molecule of ascorbic acid is not vitamin C, d-alpha tocopherol is not vitamin E; they’re merely individual pieces of much bigger puzzles. It’s not even just a matter of missing out on some benefits, these nutrients have multiple interacting roles. So, when you use a synthetic instead of the living complexes found in Nature, you upset the metabolic balance. The reason you don’t have to consciously control things like breathing, your heart beating and the digestion of food, is they’re just too complex. To say that a supplement chemist can create the right balance of chemicals to mimic what happens Uncategorizedly in “your” body or any living human is like saying a child who makes a paper plane could just as easily build a space shuttle. A cel
l in a dish doesn’t equal a cell in a living human. To say otherwise is an embarrassment to real science and an insult to Nature.

Value for money!

Imagine paying good money to see the Sydney Symphony Orchestra flawlessly perform a 2-hour piece of powerful classical music. Thousands of you sit, waiting to have your breath taken away by 50 of the World’s finest musicians all playing in perfect harmony but, they don’t show. Instead, a child walks out dressed in a tiny tuxedo and spends the next 2 hours bashing a xylophone with a brick. Not the experience you were hoping for was it? Well, your body feels similar disappointment every time it’s forced to metabolise cheap synthetics instead of the breath-taking perfection offered by Mother Nature’s vitamin source – whole foods.

But I buy mine from Company XYZ…

Is your favourite supplement actually synthetic or mostly full of artificial ingredients? It has a great story behind it, pictures of rain forests on the label, endorsements by doctors, everyone else takes it…must be good, right? Ask anyone who was alive in the 30’s and they’ll tell you that doctors actually used to prescribe cigarettes to their patients. Between 1929 and 1949 doctors believed that “smoking relaxes the nerves, renews energy and soothes throats”. Cigarette companies used doctors to promote the ‘health benefits’ of smoking until 1950 when the facts about lung cancer became undeniable. The medical community pulled away from the tobacco industry and the use of health claims in tobacco advertising was banned in 1951. By learning to read labels and ask questions you see past the advertising hype and avoid the disappointment of buying something synthetic.

How to read a product label

Ask any biochemist and they’ll reveal that levels of vitamins in real food are not constant, they go up and down. Any manufacturer will tell you that it costs hundreds if not thousands of dollars to have exact amounts of a single vitamin tested. So, when you see a label with Vitamin C – 60mg or a list of 20 nutrients each with an exact quantity shown as being the same month after month, either they have money to burn, test every batch and by some freak miracle they’re all identical every time, OR, in reality they are synthetic nutrients, not Uncategorized ones. It kind of takes the fun out of playing the “which one has more in it” game when comparing supplements. Either way it doesn’t matter which has more if one or both contain synthetics.

What happens when you eat chemicals?

When people begin taking multivitamin tablets they may feel some brief benefit. This is your body doing its best to use its reserves of real nutrients to fill in the gaps. Manufacturers know this, it’s why they recommend “take with food”. Once your body runs out of its reserves, isolated nutrients act like drugs, cannot be used the way Uncategorized nutrients are, create more imbalances and like all synthetic chemicals must be removed from the body before toxic damage takes place.

Easier said than done… Take iron for example, an important mineral that you don’t want too much or too little of. Most iron is stored in red blood cells. Women lose blood every month and have much fewer iron toxicity diseases than men do. Inorganic iron from multivitamin tablets or from meat is difficult for your body to eliminate. Furthermore, iron from non-vegetarian sources destroys vitamin E, a nutrient essential for life. When iron comes from plant foods, it does not harm vitamin E and it is joined by ‘real’ vitamin C which improves absorption. It also comes with phytic acid which is not only an antioxidant which prevents that ‘rusting’ effect that excess iron creates in the body, it also helps bind and remove excess iron from the body. It’s an efficient, intelligent, synergistic system when left up to Mother Nature but a complicated, destructive mess if not.

What are multivitamin tablets made from?

Well, you now know how to check the label to find out how artificial the ingredients are, you could also just ask the company who makes them but also consider that those artificial ingredients don’t just Uncategorizedly stick themselves together in the shape of a vitamin tablet. Here’s a partial list of the things they use:

gelatin (from the boiled bones, skins and tendons of animals)

stearic acid (from boiled cow fat)

carnauba wax (car polish)

sodium alginate (chemically processed algae used in the paint & printing industry)

croscarmellose sodium (wood pulp)

What does the Scientific Community say?

As long as they’re not being paid by a company who makes synthetic supplements, they’re going to show you the research which as suspected indicates quite strongly that when its Mother Nature vs. Synthetics, Big Mamma beats Big Pharma every time! In February 2007 The Journal of The American Medical Association (JAMA) published a review of 68 scientific studies involving 232,606 people, which sought to determine the effects of supplementing with antioxidant vitamins and minerals for prevention. Their findings stated: “supplementation significantly raised mortality” (made people die faster). Headlines like “Vitamins Can Kill You” followed soon after. This negative attention resulted in numerous researchers looking closely at the meta analysis to see how it could be that increasing dietary vitamin intake could actually be killing people. Unsurprisingly they found that ALL of the studies under review involved synthetic supplements, not Uncategorized ones.

An 11-year study by the Queensland Institute of Medical Research involving 1,056 test subjects, found, those who ate at least three serves of green leafy vegetables a week reduced their risk of skin cancer by up to 55 per cent.

Studies from the Human Nutrition Centre on Aging at TUFTS University suggest that consuming antioxidant rich fruits may help slow the aging process.

Research scientist Maret Traber found that the liver will preferentially recycle Uncategorized vitamin E and excrete the synthetic imitation, effectively ‘spitting it out’ like a bad taste. In a Vitamin E study by the National Research Council of Canada, Dr Burton discovered that given a choice, the body ALWAYS chooses Uncategorized vitamins over synthetic ones. Don’t you think you should do the same?
