According to CommexFX, the FX market is the largest and most active in the world. There is no market—no stock market, no futures market—on which trading happens more regularly. The FX market is also known for being the most accessible market in the world—and yet, the success rate for new and novice investors is disarmingly low.
Why is this? As with any other form of investment, FX trading brings with it both risk and reward. Often, for beginners, mitigating risk and moving forward strategically can prove challenging. In the paragraphs that follow, CommexFX shares some of the biggest errors for new currency traders to avoid. Read more
As a pioneer in India’s energy industry who has served as a frontrunner in the green energy movement, Prashant Modi has witnessed just how much corporate social responsibility has caught on in recent years.
Not only are social entrepreneurs taking on new challenges to deliver life-changing concepts in business, but they are also reaching out to think about how their work truly impacts the entire globe.

House flipper and real estate expert Matthew Vettese has been training dogs his entire life. For him, part of making a house a home is the inclusion of a canine companion, and he encourages dog lovers to share in the joys of dogs by finding the dog that is right for them.
Choosing the dog. Whether you select a puppy from a breeder or an adult dog from a shelter, there are several important considerations families must take into account before bringing home their new family member. Do you rent property or own? Do you have large backyards or take regular hikes? Do you have small children or plan on having children soon? What level of experience do you have with dogs? Are there any allergies in the family? Other pets? Are there any breeds a landlord prohibits, such as Pit Bulls, Rottweilers, Dobermans, or German Shepherds?
Prospective dog owners should realistically assess their living situation. Choosing a high-energy breed for a small, city apartment, says Matthew Vettese, could be a recipe for disaster. On the other hand, a high energy breed like a border collie might be perfect for a very active family who is also interested in dog agility, and a smaller dog breed like a Shih Tzu or a cocker spaniel would be a better choice for apartment living. While these breeds are still capable of high-energy moments, a small dog tearing around the house will cause less damage than a larger breed. Select the breed or mixed breed dog, Matthew Vettese suggests, that best suits your lifestyle. Read more
The Burzynski Clinic recognizes that receiving a cancer diagnosis is scary. Regardless of the type or stage, people are concerned about their future.

There are many different forms of cancer, and they affect everyone slightly differently. Once the doctor has performed the necessary tests and taken a thorough medical history, they will develop a treatment plan.
Treatment plans vary from person to person. Some people undergo multiple types of treatment in order to most effectively combat their cancer. Depending on the type, it will affect how the person prepares. Patients should bring all relevant medical documents with them to their appointment including insurance cards, test results, scans, charts, and anything else they have. This can help the doctor when determining treatment. It is important that patients ask the appropriate questions and have an understanding of what to expect. They should discuss potential side effects with the physician so that they can plan accordingly. Common cancer treatments include: Read more
