The American dollar remained stable in opposition o majority of its chief contemporaries on Friday as a result of the positive trade statistics in the U.S., at the same time as the Canadian dollar hits close to a low of five years because of anxiety of oil prices declining gradually.

For the first time in the last five years, natural oil slipped $59 per drum and as a result it expanded on Thursday an abrupt regression which provoked shock significance toll incise from the Norwegian central bank.

The materialization scaled up even higher than 119.55 yen, springing back from 117.44, a two-week low. This comes following a report that was strictly monitored illustrated that trade statistics in the U.S. increased at an estimated 0.7% percent in November but has flowed back to 118.92 since then.

The statistics showed new confirmation of fundamental thrust in the economy and drew attention to the deviating viewpoints between the U.S. and other developing countries around the world.

The subsequent contribution of loans of about zero-cost by the European central bank, on the other hand, only garnered lukewarm responses, which underscored delicate assurance on the Euro sector and the manufacturing of ECB bills emerge being all but predictable.

The Euro naturally took a plunge back to $1.2370 coming from a close high of $1.2247 for two weeks. It sold at $1.2410, which drifted quite closely to the 38.2% stage of retracement in its increase to $1.2496 from $1.2247 during former gatherings.

The economy of Morocco continues to become service-based and the job market are more focused in employing people with new skills that can be applied in real life as well as competencies. The only problem lies with the teaching of foreign languages and how it does not meet the needs of the students who are already struggling in the 21st century.

Though there are many documents official supporting the teaching of English as well as statements released in various press conferences, this learning of a foreign language still follows strict traditional paradigms.

In a recent statement from the Minister of National Education and Vocational Training, Mr Rachid Benmoukhtar, expressed that they are focusing more on foreign languages in order to create more opportunities for the future generation so they may be able to easily find a job and be more competitive since everything is constantly changing. This sentiment is not new and has also been expressed last 2000 during the National Charter on Education and Training as well as the two previous school years.

The question is what the government is doing in the education system in order for this statement to take effect as said by the minister. Though there have been many claims in the official statements as well as documents, none have been implemented in Moroccan schools. The only step that the ministry of education did to improve the teaching of English in the country is through the adoption of International and Vocational Streams for the Moroccan Baccalaureate. In reality and practice in schools, there is no change when it comes to promoting the English language. As a proof, the teachers are still using the same books in school and the teaching materials are still the same – with the use of board and chalk. In general, the curriculum as well as the syllabus remains unchanged.

It is known that in order for the schools to teach another language more proficiently, there should be assessment procedures done. With the growing need for more competent teachers, native English speakers get paid to teach English abroad.

Recycle Across America’s founder and Executive Director, Michelle Hedlund, who is more commonly known as Mitch said that recycling is one of the major factors that could have the greatest impact on environmental change. The company Recycle Across America is known to be an advocate when it comes to recycling and their brainchild is referred to by The New York Times as one of the most essential fixes that has been introduced these days.

The fix is standardized system that can be used when labeling all recycle bins in a nation. It was the creation of a non-profit organization called Recycle Across America. The idea may be simple in nature but it has already caused great change for those who adopted it. According to Hedlund, the method is recycling can have a positive impact on everything related to the environment such as the lowering the level of CO2, reducing wastes that are dumped in the ocean, protecting the sources of fresh water, conservation of energy, to put a stop to the depletion of resources that are limited as well as give attention to the biggest issue today which is climate change. Hedlund does not disregard the fact that there are other measures taken as well in order to answer these issues such as solar power, wind power and other forms of energy source that are more friendly to nature but she expressed how recycling could have the biggest impact compared to all of these.

Hedlund also shared how the recycling industry is not on its tip top shape as there are major problems starting with the garbage bins. She expressed how confusion when it comes to handling the recycling bins has affected the recycling industry. The public should be educated regarding the proper use of these recycling bins and everything will fall into place.

It was in 2011 when the Recycle Across America decided to launch the labeling system and it has now gained popularity and is used in many cities, schools, states and businesses. For packaging supplies that are environment friendly, visit Paper Mart.

After winning the Democratic nomination, Hilary Clinton is one step towards being the first woman president of the United States. If Hilary Clinton wins the presidency, her polices will be under close scrutiny particularly on how they affect women. Achieving gender equality remains to be a dream considering that only 4.2% of Fortune 500 companies have female CEOs. The number of female senators in the US is barely 20%.

At the EY World Entrepreneur of the Year event, Margaret Heffernan, a businesswoman and writer talked about some moments of her career where she played a game that was actually designed for men. It is tough to play a men’s game but instead of trying the climb the corporate ladder, a better option for the female population is to rewrite the rulebook. Women can run their own business and not wait for men to make the changes. Women who are in leadership roles whether in business, government or the third sector must make sure to support women and build an environment that will be supportive to the female population. Female CEO’s can help women by hiring and promoting them. They should also consider how their actions will affect their employees particularly women.

Technology has helped in creating new entrepreneurs but it is also threatening some of the jobs that women use to hold. Because of the internet, people can work anywhere they want to according to their own time but it also being used to automate different jobs like administrative work that is traditionally done by women staff. According to predictions, 40% of the American workforce will be working as freelancers. While online jobs reduce unemployment rates, it can also be detrimental to women because of less pay and lack of job security. Technology opens many opportunities but is can be a threat to low-earning jobs. How can a balance be created?

A Simple Guide To Finding The Right Plumber

Plumber working on sink smiling

There are a lot of reasons to hire a plumber whenever you are experiencing a plumbing problem at home. Most of the time, people tend to ignore their plumbing woes until it hits them in the face. When you neglect your plumbing and its problems, these problems would definitely turn for the worst and you would have a rather large bill on your hand for repairs. Also think of the inconvenience it would cost you when you suddenly can’t access the water system in your home.

When people do acknowledge the problem, most of the time they would try to fix it on their own. For the most part, this is a good way to save money. However, you must also weigh in the severity of the problem and think about whether you are qualified to perform such repair work. The safest option would be to hire a professional plumber. When hiring a plumber, it is important that you find the right one. Here is a simple guide to finding the right plumber.

  1. Check their qualifications. First and foremost, you must always ask about their license. You do not want to trust an unlicensed plumber to do the job because you will be left unprotected in case something unfortunate happens.
  2. Get references and read reviews online. Get at least two or three references and check out their ratings and reviews online. The reviews and the ratings would help you determine what kind of plumber they are.
  3. Consider their experience. It would be best to have a highly experienced plumber because you don’t want your plumbing system to become a training ground for newbie plumbers.
  4. Look for guarantees. Highly experienced and professional plumbers would always offer a guarantee to their customers because they trust themselves not to make any errors.
  5. Get referrals. When you go online, you may find trusted plumbers like those of Richards. However, you can also try asking for referrals from the people you do trust like your friends and family who have recently had a need for plumbers for their own plumbing woes.

Tips For Finding Gifts For People You Don’t Know That Much

Tips For Finding Gifts For People You Don’t Know That Much

If you think finding the right gift to give to a close friend is hard, what about those you don’t know that well? When it comes to giving gifts to people you’re close with, it wouldn’t be too hard seeing as you  would already have an idea about the things they may like to receive, their likes and dislikes, hobbies, interests and preferences. But with people you don’t know well, finding the right gift can become a gamble. You will be buying gifts you aren’t sure that the person will appreciate.

But it’s okay to feel stressed about it. You only want to give a great gift and make sure your efforts don’t go in vain. So in order to avoid that, here are some tips that you can use when looking for gifts for people you don’t know that well.

  1. Go with a homemade gift or a hostess gift. A hostess gift is something that people bring during a dinner or a party hosted by another person. Oftentimes, hostess gifts are in the form of wine. But if the person you’re gifting to doesn’t drink, then you should definitely consider a homemade gift such as food and other homemade goods.
  2. Go for a practical gift. You can also give something that the person can use in his/her profession. For example, if the recipient works in an office or school, then you can buy supplies that he/she can use.
  3. Take that person out for lunch. If you’re gifting a colleague or a co-worker, then you can just take that person out for lunch one day and as you would not only get away from stress but you could also get to know each other better.
  4. Ask people who are good friends with the recipient. The recipient’s friends would definitely know what to give so why not ask for their personal opinion?
  5. Go with safe gifts. Monogram gifts, for example, are safe gifts that are not only cool but thoughtful as well. With monogram gifts, you don’t need to worry about whether the recipient would like the gift or not as you can never really go wrong with monogram gifts.

Introducing Robb Report’s Car Of The Year: The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB

Introducing Robb Report’s Car Of TheYear-The 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB

April 5, 2016 – Super cars are classified as one of the best and most expensive sports cars right now and due to their incredible price, which is mostly over $100, 000 these high-end sports cars are considered more as a way for people to show off and as status symbols. However, their exceedingly high price makes them highly efficient and luxurious vehicles. Super cars are known for their speed, power and the ability to gather attention. But how do you determine the best among such cars? Is there a standard that they have to meet to become a winner or is there a special judge such as the president who chooses which car bests out the others? Is there even a winner at all? Apparently for Robb Report, there is.

Robb Report is a respected luxury lifestyle magazine that features luxury products from automobiles to watches and even real estate. The magazine is known to pit luxurious car brands like Ferrari, Tesla, Alfa Romeo, and McLaren against each other and this year, it would seem that the magazine had made a good decision for choosing the 2016 Ferrari 488 GTB as car of the year.

The magazine unveiled its “Car of the Year” in its April issue and they didn’t just pick a car out of the 13 high-end creations of Tesla, Ferrari, and McLaren and more, they turned them against each other.

How the winner is determined had greatly changed over the year. Brett Anderson, editor-in-chief for the magazine, had revealed that before they would just get in the cars and then make a decision but after a few years they had to shake up the contest and from an editorial it soon became a reader’s choice, which means that readers are actually the ones who choose the winners.

Anderson said that they would invite drivers and owners of these types of cars to offer their perspectives. The event is also a fundraiser which has raised about $200,000,000 since 2003. According to Anderson, they all take the event seriously, taking their time to drive the cars. He said that it was so obvious that the Ferrari 488 GTB was going to win that nobody wanted it to win. But in the end, they did decide to stick with the best and now they have their car of the year.

The luxury car has an outstanding Ferrari 488 price with $275,000.
