Wessex Institute’s Journals Address Topics of Interest to Many Countries

Although the Wessex Institute of Technology’s campus is located in beautiful forested area of the UK, the Institute does address topics of interest such as safety in engineering and transportation development, which apply to cities located in countries all over the world. To supplement the material provided through the Institute this facility also publishes informational journals that cover some of the same topics as their conferences. The Wessex Institute journals are considered to be international Institute, because they speak to the issues that occur in many countries across the globe.

The Wessex Institute journals are published through WIT Press with titles that are often continuations of previously released issues. WIT Press currently has seven journal titles contracted for release in 2017 with an additional title scheduled for release in 2018. Journals that have not yet gone to press could still have an open call for papers, which means Wessex Institute is still accepting submissions on the scheduled topic.


Why do millions of people join Avaaz every year?

If you do any research looking for the world’s largest activist organization, you will find the name Avaaz. Founded just seven years ago, Avaaz already has more than 44 million members and is active in 194 countries on all four continents.

How did Avaaz become so large in such a short while, and why do millions of people join Avaaz every year?

Internet-based — Avaaz became so large so fast not only because its founders had a well-thought-out plan, but also because it is Internet-based.

This has allowed it to recruit members and donations in most countries on the planet, and given it a global reach like no other activist network before it.

Grass-roots activism — Avaaz has taken the idea of grass-roots activism and expanded it from a local concept to a global one. Anyone can become a member of the site, and each person’s voice has just the same power as every other member’s.

As Avaaz refuses to accept donations from corporations or governments, it is a completely independent organization. Its members decide on the issues the organization targets, not corporations and not governments, and no outside body has the power to prevent it from doing so.

Working with like-minded organizations — Avaaz does not stand alone, however, as it works and funds other like-minded organizations around the world.

This is because the founders believe, if a local organization can do a better job than Avaaz when targeting an issue, they should be allowed to do so and should be funded by Avaaz so that they can.

Not single-issue oriented — While most other activist organizations concentrate on just one issue, Avaaz does not limit itself.

Instead it focuses on everything from human rights to animal rights, free speech to conflict issues and everything in between.

This means becoming a member of the organization is attractive to both single-issue activists and those that want to make a difference in a wide variety of areas.

The Traveling Vineyard Is A Direct Selling Company That Deals In Wines

What Is The Business Model Of The Traveling Vineyard?

The Traveling Vineyard markets and sells wines directly to consumers. This means that the company does not sell its products through an intermediary like a liquor store. Instead The Traveling Vineyard uses wine guides which are sales agents of the company to advertise its products directly to people. If a person likes a wine, then The Traveling Vineyard then delivers the product directly to a person’s home using a shipping carrier.

The Advantages of Working For The Traveling Vineyard As A Sales Agent

The Traveling Vineyard sales agents or wine guides can enjoy many benefits. The first benefit is that they get to sample wine and enjoy foods with other people and that this is part of the job. Wine guides have to bring samples of wine and sometimes food right into people’s homes. This is a big perk of the job. You get to enjoy wine, snacks that pair with wine and make some company while you are trying to sell a person some fine wine.

Another advantage besides drinking wine, enjoying wine complimenting foods and making new acquaintances is work flexibility. A wine guide at The Traveling Vineyard is not fixed to a certain schedule. He or she must not work a daily 9-5. Wine guides can set their own schedules. They can work as much or as little as they want. You can work full time, part time or even seasonally if you wish. It can be your only job, your second job or a part time job that you fit in around family.

Another benefit to joining the Traveling Vineyard team is that it is very easy to get started as a wine guide at The Traveling Vineyard. It takes very little upfront investment in terms of time and money to become an official wine guide. The Traveling Vineyard also takes care of fulfilling all orders and the only thing you focus on is meeting new customers and marketing the product along with some foods that pair with the wine in what is called sommology.

Urge The Older Men In Your Life To Get Life Line Screening

There is a theory that men die earlier because they refuse to seek medical attention when they need it. Culturally, it seems that men have a difficult time reaching out for a helping hand. That is why it is so important for the people in men’s lives to urge them to get preventative healthcare screenings with Life Line Screening.

One particular medical condition strikes men much more than women and is fatal. Abdominal aortic aneurysm takes place deep within the abdomen. Older men and men who smoke are at high risk for this potentially fatal condition. If you have an older man in your life or a man who smokes, you should urge them to get preventative healthcare screenings.

There really is nothing to preventative screening from Life Line Screening. You first arrive at the Life Line Screening facility, you will be greeted by a receptionist. After filling out a little bit of paperwork, you get to hang out in the waiting room. You are then walked through a series of nine quick and painless tests that are noninvasive. The worst that happens is you get your fingerprint for a blood test. There is nothing unusual or embarrassing about the entire process.


One of the tests is an ultrasound of the abdomen looking for abdominal aortic aneurysm. The aneurysm starts deep within the stomach and can break off to become fatal. Each aneurysm grows at a different rate. Small aneurysms may be monitored while larger ones must be removed surgically. Unfortunately for this condition, the man suffering from it may not feel it until it is too late. Symptoms include pain in the abdomen and back pain. These kinds of symptoms are nothing out of the normal for some people so they are generally overlooked. But it is this crucial test that can save many men’s lives.
