OrganoGold Is Capturing the Attention of Coffee Lovers in Turkey

PR Newswire reports that OrganoGold has expanded it’s service to Turkey. The coffee manufacturer is hardly new to international sales. This marks the 39th country in which OrganoGold’s CEO, Bernardo Chua, has overseen the opening of a new market. But while it might have a high number, it also comes with a huge sense of significance.

Part of this significance comes from the fact that it will help serve as a bridge between several different markets. It’s expected that the operations in Turkey will help to facilitate work between the Asian, European and African operations for the company. But the significance of Turkey goes far beyond the basic mechanics of a successful business. Turkey is often looked at as the birthplace of coffee culture. In fact, the first record of a coffee house dates back to a historical account of a 15th century establishment within Turkey. When coffee catches the eye of people in Turkey it’s on the same level as wine gaining special notice in France. Turkey is filled with people who take their coffee very seriously. The combination of historical context and educated palettes means that a coffee needs to be something special to catch on in Turkey.

Facebook shows company CEO Bernardo Chua also puts a lot of credit for the expansion to the fact that many people in Turkey place importance on health and an active lifestyle. OrganoGold’s brand of coffee makes use of the Ganoderma mushroom. And while the Ganoderma mushroom has many positive health effects attributed to it, one thing has become obvious. People who love coffee and love being active have also come to love OrganoGold’s line of coffee.

Bernardo Chua has a long history of bringing this healthy beverage to the world. He’s done so well and for so long that he’s received official recognition in the form of the Napoleon Hill Foundation Gold Medal. He’s focused not only on the success of OrganoGold, but also in helping a wide variety of people from all over the world make a career for themselves within the company.

The New Puppy

After the ride home with a new puppy is successful, it is time to make it through the first week. However, it is important for you to forget about yourself for a while. Owning a new puppy is so exhilarating that this may be hard, but the puppy will suffer some separation anxiety from being away from a place with littermates and possibly other dogs and people. Everything will be new including you and their feeding regimen. This will be traumatic for the puppy, but it can be made easier for both of you. There is an old methodology for this part of house-breaking the new puppy, but it requires traumatizing you and your puppy much more than necessary in my opinion. This arcane method suggests leaving the puppy alone to self-adjust to their new surroundings for three to four days. This may work, but the repercussions for that puppy in these days make me as a trainer wary.

I suggest using this time to immediately start socializing the puppy, and my kids and I feel better about not leaving the puppy alone for this period. Actually, I feel the new puppy should not be left alone at all ever, but especially during this time. Alone time for the puppy is the bathroom, feeding and sleep time only this early on. In horses, we socialize early according to the whispering technique also. It just works better to show as much love and socialize them with kids and other household things that may be scary with their new surroundings. The puppies understand real simply that you are their new pack, and instead of missing their litter, they understand that you fulfill their needs both physically and mentally. However, feeding presents its own set of problems throughout this first week. Beyond how much and when, it is also important that the brand provides superior nutrition. It is not easy to discern which brand to utilize at this point because of the massive amount of brands on the market, and their proposed promises.

I grew up on a ranch, and the Purina brand is all that we had ever utilized in feeding any of our animals including dogs. I also learned not to change from things that work. In our business, we understand the importance of good nutrition. I still use a Purina products in my breeding program for every facet of my dog’s life. It is especially effective in feeding our puppies after they are weaned. The brand is Beneful, and we use it when we transition our puppies especially. The wet brand has specific dietary properties that suits puppies that are accustomed to their mother’s rich milk. We then transition them into really any brand of Beneful that they like. Most of my older male dogs are fed Beneful’s dry brands mostly. It is funny because they are the most finicky. I have seen them bury other dry foods instead of eating them when we are away from the kennel.

Business And Sports Combine For Bruce Levenson

The changing face and culture of the NBA has recently been highlighted by the departure of one of the best known and most respected figures in both sports and business. Bruce Levenson and the consortium originally known as Atlanta Spirit have been in control of the Atlanta hawks franchise for a decade, but have now relinquished control of the franchise to billionaire financial expert Tony Ressler. The change in ownership sees basketball follow the lead of a number of other sports in seeing an increasing number of individual owners take charge of franchises in a bid to invest their fortunes in sports and sports club ownership.

At the time Bruce Levenson on ucg.com and his fellow consortium members took control of the Atlanta Hawks franchise for $250 million they also gained control of the NHL’s Atlanta Thrashers and the operating rights to Philips Arena. Since the purchase of the Hawks in 2004, Levenson has become the face of the franchise and has seen the Hawks replicate his business empire in heading in an upward trajectory. The co-founder of UCG and the man behind the popular GasBuddy app has seen his business empire grow from its first days operating from a storage room to become one of the top real time analytics companies in the world.

In terms of sporting prowess, there can be few turnarounds as impressive as that orchestrated by Levenson at the Hawks. One of the biggest achievements in the business life of one of the most successful businesspeople in the world must be taking the Hawks from the bottom of the NBA standings to the number one seed for the Eastern Conference at the outset of the 2014-15 playoffs.

At the close of a decade in charge of the Hawks franchise, Bruce Levenson had already taken the decision to sell the Thrashers franchise in 2011 for an estimated $170 million. That decision was followed by the choice to sell the Hawks and the operating rights to Philips Arena for a large profit at an estimated $750 million. Billionaire Tony Ressler has taken on the role as the latest owner of the Atlanta Hawks and will be expected to use his own fortune to make sure the Hawks move on to a higher level of success at the later stages of the NBA playoffs in coming years. The success already achieved by the Bruce Levenson consortium at the Hawks has laid a strong groundwork for the future of the franchise as it takes a new direction.

Eucatex To Last As Successful For Another 60+ Years

Here is a company that values your opinion and suggestions. It has established a service on their website called Ethics Channel, which enables you to, in all discretion, leave your comment or complaint in regards with some action taken by company’s staff which is contrary to their document Eucatex Group Code of Ethics and Conduct.

Short History

What started as a small company in 1951, first one to use eucalyptus as a raw material for ceiling tiles and panels, is now, thanks to their long-term strategy and investments in new technologies and production lines, a sovereign leader in production of laminate floors, wall partitions, doors, hardboards and paints and varnishes on the Brazilian market. It is also present in 37 other markets around the globe.

Today’s president of the company, an engineer by vocation, Flavio Maluf, besides being responsible for the wellbeing and progress of Eucatex with its 2,201 employees, went a step beyond and is thinking about the welfare of the whole Brazilian society by attracting investors to his country.

Environmental Awareness

In addition, the company conducts a responsible and well developed socio-environment program that has a goal to provide a sustainable production of wood, used by company’s production lines. Waste of resources is simply not an option, as the company is well aware that there is no room for improvement, or production at all, for that matter, if you exploit all the available raw material without caring to raise new plantations. The Eucates Recycling Program treats wood residue as a source of energy and uses it as a biomass, without polluting the environment. In 2012, Eucatex sponsored the production of a documentary about environmental preservation in Santos, Brazil.

Social Policy

Similar to company’s vision of the global society and nature preservation, Eucatex is applying the same rules for the preservation of its employees, because they may not be numerous, but they are certainly the “guilty“ ones for the day-to-day operations of the company.

Endurance in a Tough Market

Needless to say what obstacles the company had to overcome, performing its bussines in a country with a difficult economic situation. With the expansion of laminate floors industry in Brazil, due to the country’s potential in wood material, Eucatex has put quality above quantity, with the aim to last at least another 60 years with the same longing to grow all its potential.
