Franchise Growth Expected in 2016

 

According to the Nightly Business Report, United States franchises are expected to grow by 1.7 percent by the end of the year. The International Franchise Association says that if their predictions are correct, there will be over 795,932 franchises by year end.
Additionally, hiring by those franchises is expected to increase throughout 2016 with an expected increase of 3.1 percent. If predictions are correct, then 9.1 million people will be working in a franchise.
Officials akin to Marc Sparks say that one of the reasons that more people will be looking to buy franchises is the weakness in the oil market. As people stop making money in oil, they naturally start looking for another area where they can invest their funds.
According to Forbes Magazine, some of the best franchises to consider buying include:

 

  • Brightway Insurance

 

  • MaidPro

 

  • Right at Home

 

  • Discovery Map

 

  • Just Between Friends

With the oil market expected to remain weak throughout 2016, the association may be right about this being the year to invest in a franchise.

Ross Abelow Savings Strays In New York City

Prominent New York City Attorney Ross Abelow proudly launched a gofundme campaign for New York City’s area animals shelters on January 13, 2016. He has chosen to head the campaign to raise $5000 for area shelters and he plans to distribute these funds to the shelters who have the greatest need, to help pay for vaccines, dental care, food, blankets and providing space so these poor abandoned animals stand a chance of finding a forever home.

During January, 2016 an estimated 1700 animals were brought into New York area shelters. Of those 1700 animals an estimated 300 healthy animals were euthanized. Some of the remaining animals were reunited with their families, others adopted by loving families, yet there are many more waiting for a home or death. As many as 20 healthy animals a day are being destroyed. Ross Abelow is hoping to help these animals survive.

Many area shelters are turning stray dogs away, as they are unable to house or care for these animals, in which case they are destroyed immediately. $5000 does not sound like much money, but to an animal shelter it helps fund the basic needs of these poor helpless animals. Many shelters accept financial donations as well as food and supplies. During the winter months the need for these items grows exponentially. Without food and shelter these animals chances of survival diminishes greatly.

A long time resident of New York City, Ross Abelow has spent a lifetime championing for the underdogs, ensuring they are given a voice to be heard. Ross has spent 27 years practicing law in some of New Yorks prominent legal firms prior to opening his own practice, Abelow and Cassandro LLC. in Jericho, New York. Ross Abelow received his juris doctor as a graduate of the Brooklyn School of Law in 1989. He was admitted to practice in the State of Connecticut in 1989 and was admitted to practice in the state of New York also in 1989.

Many of New York’s prominent attorneys specialize in certain legal areas of interest. Ross Abelow is no different, he chose to specialize in Matrimonial and Family Law, Corporate Litigations and Entertainment Law. During his free time he coaches his daughters basketball and softball teams.

How New York Attorneys Give Back to the Community

Many New York City attorneys work hard to defend the rights of their clients. They use their knowledge and experience to help their clients not only get the best outcome in a legal situation they are facing, but they help them to make decisions during a case that will benefit them over the long-term. Another way that many New York attorneys help people is by donating to charities and doing other work that benefits their community. Ross Abelow is one such attorney. He has launched a winter fundraiser that will benefit homeless animals in New York City.

Ross Abelow has been working as a lawyer in New York City for more than 26 years. He attended the Brooklyn Law school and then applied to practice law in New York State in 1990. Since that time he has been working as a matrimonial and family lawyer. At times, he will take cases that involve civil litigation and entertainment law. After more than 25 years of working at different firms in the city, he became a partner at his own law firm.

Ross Abelow decided to launch this campaign because he knows that when homeless animals are not taken care of during the winter months, they can die. As they are wandering the streets and are not able to find shelter or food, they can succumb to the terrible winter conditions and even die. Many sick animals are brought to New York homeless shelters, but sometimes the shelters have to turn animals away. They simply do not have the funding that is needed to purchase things like medicine and food for the animals that are brought in. Also, they do not have the space to house these animals. Ross Abelow hopes to raise $5,000 that can be donated to the shelters. Individuals can donate by going to the Go Fund Me page that was set up in his name. When they go to that page, they can learn more about Ross Abelow and also the winter campaign that he launched in January 2016.

He regularly updates the site and provides free legal information that has proved useful to readers. Individuals can become the his friends on Facebook and also receive helpful legal information.

Slyce Inc. Introduces New Enhance 3D Object Recognition Technology in 2015

According to Yahoo Finance, Slyce Inc. has released a breakdown of the most recent technological advancements of 2015 which have been made available to their clients. One of these technologies is the Enhanced 3D Object Recognition technology which was introduced during the 2015 financial year.

This new feature allows products to be recognized from retail catalogues in all categories. This technology was only made available to those retailers that operated in verticals but may be utilized in other segments in the future. These categories are appliances, tools, home decor, electronics and fashion. Visual search technology allows for the recognition of products from User Generated Content or UGC’s. This is performed in a very unique way using 2 separate flows. The Slyce Inc. uses both Human Assisted Flows alongside fully automated image recognition flows in order to make sense of the product in the image. These 2 algorithms allow the user to first search for the product in the image through the use of an existing database of products. If the product is not identified in the first flow it moves onto the second flow which allows the user to implement certain parameters or human flows to assist the process of recognition. The goal is for the software to math the correct product to that featured in the image. This is all done in real time and does not require any technological knowledge. It is a very intuitive process making it easier for all types of users to make use of this technology. The first flow or fully automated image recognition uses a statistical matching approach where the image used is compared to a large existing database of pre-indexed images. This database contains multiple images of the same product from various different angles reducing the risk of failure by the algorithm.

Human Rights Activist And Leader Paves The Way For The Freedom of Future Generations

The Human Rights Foundation, founded in 2005 by Thor Halvorssen, works to promote much needed basic human rights for everyone around the world. Today, the foundation is made up of dedicated and passionate individuals working to spread awareness and undertake issues on human rights. With all of the inequality and mistreatment going on today, it’s a breath of fresh air to see there are those who still wish to preserve the freedom and defend the rights of every human being. The Human Rights Foundation continually attempts to improve the liberties of those who need it, and they do so despite political opposition. The foundation has even managed to help people in what could be viewed as the most isolated and politically oppressed nation, North Korea.

Long before the establishment of the Human Rights Foundation, Thor Halvorssen had already started in his mission to protect human rights. Along with the Human Rights Foundation, Halvorssen also founded the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education just 6 years prior and operated as Executive Director up until 2004. Further pushing his interest in the protection of human rights, was his father being falsely accused and imprisoned in a Venezuelan jail, where he was tortured. It took a large amount of international intervention to get his father freed. Both Amnesty International and the International Society for Human Rights had to get involved in the case.

He has also been presented in The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Foreign Policy, The Economist, The Washington Post, Time Magazine, The Daily Telegraph, New York Post, and GQ magazine for his views, opinions, and work on human rights around the globe. Halvorssen has personally produced several successful documentaries on human rights and freedom that gained some recognition and helped raise awareness. At present he is on the board of directors at the Human Rights Foundation, while maintaining the personal goal to bring equality to people of all walks of life.
