Kira’s story or Why do we like our dogs?

Exactly why do we adore our cats and dogs? You maybe made this specific question a lot of times. And the conclusion has been different each time, because of the fact that everybody have they exclusive reasons to like this little or not very little beings. The tale I desire to tell you is definitely not so particular. But also, on the other side, then even more stories like this occurs, better would be the Entire world where we are living.

All my life (since I recapture myself) I had animal companion in my home. However after me and my family transferred to the other city it wasn’t  simple to adopt something. Anytime we have been thinking about a pet dog, the prime question was basically: Where will it run every day, where is no place near by our residential home for that? As a result we took a pet cat. Soon After little time period she eventually got kittens, And so now three cats are living along with us.
However, I don’t want to discuss very much about this cats. This particular tale is related to other alive being, a puppy what name is Kira.

This particular tiny doggy found its way to my house 9 month ago being a puppy. It simply got in by the open door and hid below the divan. My brother felt her chilly nose on his foot and told: “How long currently have we a pet dog in a residence?” All family where shocked to hear anything like so. So he took the doggy out and demonstrated it to everyone.

We didn’t dedicated a lot time to decide to permit this canine live in our place. Ever since it’s name is Kira and every person wants it similar to a fellow member of the family. Just a single dilemma stays devoid of solution still: Who have been that way harsh to throw this little (perhaps one month old) dog to the street? When Kira located us, it merely could consume dry food. I can’t assume where are individuals just like that in this universe. And checking on Kira I can easily notify that this month of her life wasn’t the most joyful one. She still scares of the guys who are dressed in clear shirt and a tie.

The first event Kira did, after she familiar to a apartment, had been get the best zone of the sofa for slumbering and watching TV. She likewise built a “friendship” with the felines, after almost a week they quit struggling and scaring each other. It is a tremendously bright creature. I don’t actually had to educate it, she feels to perceive the “common dialog” of human terminology.

And so, how can’t you really like this puppy? At present it is about 10 month old and it have learned the routine of each representative of the family and get prepared with anticipation to meet each and every with jumping, licking the hands and several other presentations of gladness and adore.

The unconditional love. Perhaps this is the answer to the issue we formulated in the beginning of the article. Because no one than them adores us regardless of how we seek, what we are using at the moment, are we reach individuals or we don’t contain a dollar

Because no one than them adores us regardless of how we seek, what we are using at the moment, are we reach individuals or we don’t contain a dollar. And most what they ask from us is to be close and look out of them. And this is not very much, only join with it occasionally, rap them ear, provide certain food, walk a little bit.

Being direct, I can’t suppose how it is feasible not to like something that looks at you with so faithful eyes.

What types of Videos are Popular on YouTube

YouTube is the most viewed Video website in the World which means there is a lot of money to be made on their network. It’s not easy though, and the reason is due to the amount of publishers using YouTube to broadcast their content to subscribers.

If you want to be successful with YouTube then you have to appeal to your subscribers and regularly upload fresh videos that others would like to share. This is what will bring your most traffic is referrals from sharing through social sites. If your video is spammy or not entertaining then no one will want to share it and your view count will remain stagnant.

Some of the most viewed videos on YouTube are music videos and not all of them are from major Record labels either. If you are a talented musician then I would highly recommend browsing the most viewed Music Videos on YouTube to get ideas about what people like.

It is important to become familiar with YouTube and stay up-to-date with trending videos. See what’s popular and what people are commenting about on other videos to see how others react to new content.

One topic of interest that people never seem to get enough of is Funny videos. If you have animals then film them goofing around and maybe you will record something hilarious that others would love to see. You can also prank one of your friends in a unique way which is something that always gets views. Take your video camera to family gatherings and other group get-togethers where alcohol is served and you will most likely get some comedy gold on tape.

Whatever type of videos you like making, you can definitely make a profit using YouTube to share your work. Once your videos start getting enough views then YouTube will invite you to become a Partner which means you can share revenue generated from Advertisements on your Videos. Just remember, that the goal is to entertain people. Upload videos that you like to watch and maybe others will too.

Migrating to a city or country, which is providing excellent job opportunities, is a common phenomenon. Singapore is one of the countries that provide an ample amount of job opportunities. People, from different parts of the world, move towards Singapore as it provides an excellent environment for earning and living.

This increasing migration expands the number of unemployed people. As a result, the pile of resumes with the employer, also become large and recruitment becomes an annoying process. In such a situation, the employer search for a Singapore recruitment firm

Outsourcing the recruitment process has become a trend. In this process, the HR (Human Resource) functions of a company are transferred to another company. A deal is made with a recruitment firm with a primary goal of cutting costs of recruitment.

The talented search companies follow a structured recruitment and selection process. The process starts from understanding the needs of clients till the post recruitment follow-ups with both clients and candidates.

The selection process of Singapore recruitment companies mainly includes three phases namely, planning, implementation and closure. A brief description of the phases involved in the recruitment process is as follows:

Planning

These companies provide customer-focused services. They determine the organisational behaviour of client’s business and evaluate his needs. The professionals of a recruitment firm identify the skills and experience, which a company is searching in a potential candidate.

They provide all the details of a job like work profile, skills required, salary and experience on their own website.

Implementation

This phase consists of preliminary interviews, short-listing of candidates, reference checks, interviews with clients. Singapore recruitment companies contact the potential candidates and conduct a preliminary interview to know the experience and interests of the candidates. Highly qualified candidates are short-listed after an informal check of last work and experience. After that, a final interview with the client is arranged.

Closure

Negotiation, offer and follow-up are included in the closure stage. These companies help in providing a competitive and equitable package to the candidates. They act as a communication link between clients and candidates till the candidates join the company.

How to Grab the Perfect Domain Name

A lot of people think that all of the great domain names are already taken, but this is not the case. There are domain names dropping and becoming available every day and plenty of unregistered names up for grabs. The key is becoming educated in the domain name industry and learning what makes the value of a premium domain.

We don’t expect you to become an expert domainer overnight, but we are going to share with you some tips that will hopefully give you a solid foundation to start from. When starting out  investing in domain names for the first time, many people get addicted and buy 100’s of names because they are so cheap, usually $10/year. This can add up to a lot of money with privacy fees and yearly renewals especially if your names are sitting there earning no revenue.

The best thing you can do is visit domain name marketplaces where other people are selling their premium names and watch the action. Browse domain name auctions and follow the entire bidding process to see which names sell for what. This will help you gain an idea of what buyers or looking for as well as learn how sellers are marketing their names.

The top domain name marketplaces are http://www.sedo.com and Godaddy‘s http://www.tdnam.com – There are other marketplaces out there, but these are the main ones. Sedo is more for domain name investors and Godaddy is more for end users looking for business names. You can find great deals on domain names all over the web depending on how much research you do. If you invest in a great domain name you stand to make a substantial profit.

Here are some features of a Great Domain Name:

1. Is the domain short and easy to remember?

2. Is the domain name a Dot Com?

3. Is the domain name marketable?

4. Does the domain have hyphens or numbers?

5. Is the domain name made up of real words?

6. Is the domain name aged?

For instance, one of the greatest domain name sales of all time for Business.com fetched over $7,000,000 because it is a real word in a profitable niche market. It was later sold for more than $350 Million dollars. Obviously, the domain name businesswebsiteonline.co.uk would not be as appealing.

When you register a brand new domain name you can expect to pay about $10-20 per year. If you buy a domain name from a website designer you might pay $500+. If you are a large corporation and want to buy a premium name you can pay upwards of $10,000.

Domain names that are older are worth more because they have more authority with the search engines. If a domain name has been dropped (expired) and re-registered then it loses some value. Domain names that are developed with websites are worth much more than just a domain name. If your website is receiving traffic and has proof of revenue then you can earn big bucks for your $10 investment.

You can buy dropped domain names after a certain waiting period usually 2-3 months after it expires. There is usually an auction process that takes place if more than one person has backordered the domain name. You can backorder a domain name that has expired through certain online services that will try to register the dropped domain name as soon as it becomes available. Pool.com is a popular service that does this for you. There is no guarantee that you will get the domain you want, but many people have good luck just registering the name themselves.

Coffee Shop Capital

Article by Samuel May MRICS, Associate Director, Brecker Grossmith.

In the words of S.Michael Brecker FRICS, founder of Brecker Grossmith,

“London is turning into one big eatery!”

He should know, having seen the ups and downs of the Central London property market since 1956, when together with Stanley Grossmith they founded the general practice West End firm of Chartered Surveyors and Agents, based in the West End’s Wigmore Street. The firm has made somewhat of a revival in the last few years/especially in representing specialist retail occupiers.

Coffee shops are nothing new to London, with the first London coffee house commencing trading at St Michael’s Alley in Cornhill EC3 back in 1652. In more recent years, however, a new breed of specialist coffee shop is changing Central London’s retail property scene. These new coffee shops and specialist cafes, have an emphasis on independence, artisan foods, speciality boutique coffee roasters and intense barista training.

As Associate Director at Brecker Grossmith, I am spending a large amount of time on Central London Retail Leasing and Acquisition work, representing a number of coffee shop and specialist café operators. This, I believe, is fuelled to a large degree by the recession. It is the recession that has largely encouraged London’s office workers to believe that whilst they may NOT be able to afford that new car or exotic holiday at the moment – they CAN afford a quality coffee – on a daily basis. Whilst a daily coffee treat could be a Starbucks or a Costa, some office workers are specifically going out of their way to track down one of these emerging quality artisan coffee shops and specialist cafés, which are popping up across the Capital in a big way!

By way of background, in Australia and New Zealand there is a huge coffee culture, where quality espresso based coffees topped with stunning latte art are standard; their beans roasted in small batches by boutique artisan roasters. Unlike some of our UK high street coffee chains, whose Cappuccinos and Lattes are very generous with their (very hot) milk, Antipodean styled coffee – especially the flat white (the debate still raging over exactly where it was first created) is a smaller, more intense ‘shorter’ espresso-based coffee. These coffee creations were first brought to the trendy areas of London by coffee legends the likes of Soho’s Flat White, Gwilyn Davis’s (Prufrock) coffee carts in Whitecross St and Columbia Road, and Smithfield’s Dose Espresso.

Ironically enough, over the last two years the flat white has become so well known that the high street chains have adopted it as standard in to their coffee menus!
We are finding that specialist quality coffee operators and specialist cafes are expressing strong demand for relatively small, 500 sq ft +, well configured retail units across The Square Mile, ‘Mid-Town’, The City Fringe and West End. These alternative cafes will seek increasingly off-prime locations, with lower rents than the punchy prime high street units of Oxford or Regent Street. They prefer to identify secondary, destination locations, where their clientele will seek them out by word of mouth.

Interestingly, they ideally hope to attract smaller volumes of more discerning customers as opposed to the mass throughput of the chains. Landlords however, can expect stable outlets that provide more of a boutique feel and can enhance the diversity of a street scene or portfolio. In fact, some specialist coffee shops, such as our retained clients, Taylor St Baristas’ flagship store hidden at the base of Hammerson’s 125 Old Broad Street, are so loved by their office worker clientele, that customers are willing to wait a good twenty minutes to get their early morning flat white coffee fix!

One question we have however asked ourselves is: Why is there this sudden surge in demand from consumers for this type of specialist product? Why is it that people are educating themselves to the extent that they have almost an obsession for understanding how the product is made, and where it originates from. One reason could be because modern day Food & Beverage consumers – and even your average Joe Bloggs – doesn’t want mass produced goods anymore. They want something a little different, something out of the ordinary, something “hand crafted”, which makes them feel special and ultimately something to feel good about themselves – that they can afford daily, despite the recession.

That is why cafes and coffee shops are now everywhere, with everyone looking to take a bigger bite out of the sandwich shop business to compete with the coffee shop chains. McDonald’s are aggressively flaunting that their coffee is ‘made with espresso from 100% freshly ground Arabica beans’ helping them to sell more espressos, lattes, cappuccinos, as well as muffins, brownies and fruit filled pies – something that a hamburger fast food restaurant have historically never pushed.

Similarly, Sainsbury’s have started to trial their ‘Fresh Kitchen’ concept in Fleet Street, London – allegedly selling the cheapest coffee on the street, along with all types of hot n’ cold food, soon to be rolled out nationwide, presumably with the aim to compete with the likes of Pret and Eat. Greggs the baker have just announced that they will be looking to take on the high street coffee brands through their latest ‘Moment’ coffee shop concept which they plan to roll out nationwide. According to Jeffrey Young, Managing Director of Allegra Strategies, the main driver behind the increased focus for the branded coffee shop sector to improve their interiors and brewing methods is in fact due to high quality independent coffee shops.

Coffee shops are now so popular that The Old Truman Brewery in London’s trendy East End will be hosting their second ‘London Coffee Festival’ on 27-29 April 2012, where a number of artisan coffee shops will be appearing in the ‘True Artisan Café’ section. Our clients Taylor St Baristas are just one of those who will be taking part.

Furthermore, a number of excellent books on London’s independent coffee shop scene have recently been published by both Allegra Strategies and Vespertine Press, listing London’s high profile independent coffee shops and cafes.

The trend amongst the growth of independent cafes, increasingly referred to as ‘Third Wave’ shops, seek to go beyond the chains in coffee quality, diversity and service.

Often fitted out on a tight budget, they will prefer to spend their capital on the best Espresso machines such as a sleek Synesso or a prize La Marzocco as opposed to expensive fixtures. In the spirit of creative entrepreneurship, Taylor St Baristas, for example, use their wall space to promote up-and coming artists’ work. Their carefully selected wooden furniture is often reclaimed vintage or church pews from Portobello Road market.

But it is not only the Antipodean Aussie and New Zealand styled cafes that coming up against the UK chains. There is now strong customer demand for the traditional foods of Finnish and Scandinavian cafes and bakeries. Our retained clients Nordic Bakery whose flagship store in Soho’s Golden Square sells a selection of specialist Scandinavian breads, cakes, pies, gravadlax (cured salmon with dill), the much loved cinnamon buns and excellent coffee. Nordic’s focus is not only on quality food but also key to their offer is the café’s specific interior design and atmosphere. We are delighted to have recently acquired Nordic’s third London store at The Portman Estate’s 48 Dorset Street in Marylebone and have been solely appointed to roll out another ten stores across the capital, to appeal to those seeking a ‘peaceful meeting place in a frantic city’.

In terms of Planning and Use Class, coffee shops are a bit of an anomaly. In 2005 one of the most significant amendments to the Town and Country Planning (Use Classes) Order 1987, was that A3 would now solely refer to Restaurants and Cafes, whereas previously it was more generically termed A3 Food & Drink. This gave birth to the newer, more specific categories A4 Drinking Establishments and A5 Hot Food Takeaway, allowing local planning authorities a greater degree of precision in making control decisions. However, perhaps what is still not clear for coffee shop operators is how a high quality ‘sandwich bar’ and ‘coffee shop’ are necessarily classified. It appears that as long as the primary purpose of the establishment is for the sale of food and drink with only a small element of heating food up, then this would still be categorised under A1 Retail.

One of the questions that has surfaced for our clients is: What is the real difference between A1 Retail and A3 Restaurant use? The boundaries seem so unclear and it seems that each shop and particular scenario is dealt with by the planners within each Local Authorities on a case by case basis, and on it’s own merit. How far can heating up soup or a Panini go?

When will an A1 ‘sandwich bar’ or ‘coffee shop’ become an A3 ‘restaurant? If an A1 retail unit needs extraction and ventilation because they do a lot of heating food up, does this infact upgrade and categorise this as an A3 café?

What about one of the new brands of coffee shops like St. Ali in Clerkenwell Road or Allpress in Redchurch Street where they roast their own beans on site but also run a full coffee shop café offer? Does this turn an A1 Coffee Shop into an Industrial Roastery? It seems the answer lies again in what the primary use is, but it is largely unclear.

Whether planners and different local authorities might classify coffee shops as A1 or A3, what is clear is that the Capital’s coffee shop scene is booming. The demand from the discerning coffee consumer for something different but affordable – despite the recession – coupled with some of the most high profile London Landlords making the choice to let space to an independent retailer over a branded chain – is allowing specialist and even boutique mini-chains, to not only emerge, but to thrive within an otherwise difficult retail property market.

Brecker Grossmith advise small to medium sized retailers, occupiers and Landlords in Central London on all commercial property management, agency and professional property matters. For more information please visit http://www.breckergrossmith.co.uk/
