Jon Urbana Wears Different Hats But He Has One Goal In Mind

The world is filled with people that sit back and watch other people make a difference. Putting yourself in the public’s eye in order to promote a cause or raise awareness for a worthy charity is not something that most people think about. But Colorado native Jon Urbana thinks about other people and animal causes all the time.

Jon Urbana Supports Earth Force, A New Fundraiser from Jon Urbana on Vimeo.

How and why Urbana decided to devote his life to keeping cats safe from the perils they face daily are good questions, but they don’t need an answer. Jon Urbana started to support Earth Force after getting behind the Animal Rescue and Adoption Society in Denver so cats could be protected from people that don’t understand the value of these quiet but smart creatures. Cats are not like dogs. Dogs like to show their feelings. Cats hide them until they know their feelings are understood.

Urbana started a CrowdRise fund to bring awareness to his Animal Rescue and Adoption Society, and its working. More people are looking at cats differently thanks to Jon. But Jon isn’t a one-dimensional guy. Urbana also founded the Next Level Lacrosse Camp for kids that wanted to learn how to play the sport in the Denver area. Jon was a star Lacrosse player in high school, and he continue to stand out on the field when played for Villanova. Urbana’s love for Lacrosse makes the Next Level Lacrosse Camp an exciting experience for all his students.

Jon also has a passion for photography and music. He combines those passions with his love of Lacrosse and the products that come out of that combination are works of art. But Urbana doesn’t stop there. He’s a pilot and an astute businessman.

All his accomplishments make Urbana sound like a man pushing 60, but Urbana has a long way to go before he hits that age. The fundraiser from Denver has a lot of energy, and he uses that energy to enhance the lives of people and animals. He’s not afraid to speak out and defend the defenseless, and that is the true mark of a man with character and conviction.

If you haven’t heard his music yet, you’re missing out. Urbana posted two tracks at MTV and has a bunch more on Soundcloud. And the best part? It’s all free.

How Economic Growth Is Shaping Brazil’s Real Estate Sector

Brazil was once a third world nation, with minimal industrial development. Citizen’s incomes were typically extremely small. They did not have the opportunity to be able to spend money on real estate. Recent times have brought changes to the country. Multinational corporations are setting up shop throughout the nation. These corporations have required the labor of Brazilian citizens, and many citizens are now employees of these multinational corporations. Furthermore, a segment of these employees are earning some pretty good incomes. Some of them are even earning enough money to purchase their own properties, and some of these properties are quite high priced. The increase in the number of people purchasing properties has driven the price of Brazilian properties up.

This has created a combination of economic factors that has made the real estate business a highly profitable one for businessmen and businesswomen in this sector of the economy. The rise in the prices has made it so that there is the potential for larger profits. In addition, the increased number of sales means more business. There are many corporations involved in Brazilian real estate that have profited immensely from these changes.

Speaking to Dino, Cabral Garcia Empreendimentos is said to be currently using these economic conditions to better their business. They operate the business, whose official website can be found here, in a way that differs from most other companies in the sector. A lot of real estate corporations specialize in assisting clients in buying and selling their property. However, this one actually gets involved in property development. Not only do they do development and management of property, but they actually design and build real estate projects. When the value has become sufficient to warrant it, they sell the property to interested buyers.

In the current economy, the tendency has been for their projects to be very successful. On Twitter they’ve said the profits off of these projects has been quite sizable. In addition, projects that the company has designed and managed have often become very well known. In fact, they own a number of properties that are local landmarks. This has made them well known by many Brazilian citizens. Furthermore, the value of all the properties owned by them is quite high.

Brazil is an up and coming world economic superpower. In fact, it’s economy is considered to be the seventh largest on Earth. The economy of the country will probably continue to improve over the years. With this improvement, real estate prices will likely rise even more in the future. In addition to the rising prices, more people will likely be able to afford properties as time goes on. This is all going to be likely to mean more business and more profitable business for the corporations that are involved in Brazil’s real estate markets.

Sadie and Bernie

Last weekend my husband and I made a rather large grocery trip that will hopefully last us for the entire month. Along with buying food for us and the kids, we also stocked up on food for our beloved dogs, Bernie and Sadie. Although the cost was more than the knock of brands, we bought a variety of Beneful products by Purina for them to try out. For treats we picked up Incredibites and for full meals we bought Beneful Healthy Weight, Beneful Prepared Meals and last but not least, old fashioned Beneful Wet Dog Food. Although it sounds like we went over board, it is reassuring to buy a variety of foods for them so we know they are getting all the nutrients and minerals they need to be healthy. After Sadie and Bernie were on the diet for just three days, we noticed a huge boost in their energy that we have never seen before. The Incredibites have them jumping about every time they hear the bag crinkle. It is funny how just switching dog food brands can impact a dogs life so much. Before they were eating bottom of the shelf food to help my wife and I save an extra penny for bills. To be honest, saving money is not worth putting our family pets at risk for bad health. I would much rather spend the extra few dollars and have them happy, healthy and satisfied after each feeding. Some may think I am completely insane for this, but I myself think it was the best investment I have ever made towards Sadie and Bernie. My wife will tell you the same.
