If you’ve ever come across a Scorpio in your life, you may begin to wonder why they’re so intense in the way they approach the world. No matter what job they have or what relationship they might be in, they always seem to be thinking about things on a higher level. While this can be appealing to some, others may find this intensity to be too much or to seem too secretive.

What you need to know is that there is a reason for the intense way that Scorpios live in the world.

First of all, you need to remember that the Scorpio is a person that doesn’t have shallow emotions. This water sign is always below the surface of the conversations in which they engage, finding ways to penetrate the superficial issues to see what is deeper.

Tax Opportunities Through Abandonment March 13, 2017

If you are considering making improvements to a commercial building, there are various tax strategies that may apply to your particular situation. One of these is abandonment, which allows the taxpayer to reduce the tax burden when replacing assets that exist within a building. So, if your green building strategy includes replacing metal halide lighting or your HVAC system, you may be able to take advantage of an abandonment tax deduction.

Individual assets being replaced may qualify for abandonment if they were never identified or segregated in the accounting records of the business when the building was purchased or constructed. If the books reflect just the large asset, such as Building, this means that the value of each individual asset is included in the value of the building. Typically, the Building is being depreciated over 27.5 years for commercial residential or 39 years for commercial property. These individual assets do have a value of their own, and when the time comes to replace them a tax deduction should be taken for all remaining value associated with those assets. If no specific value was assigned to your HVAC system or metal halide lighting, a qualified advisor may be able to determine the remaining value at the time of replacement, allowing for a deduction which will help defray the cost of the new equipment.

An abandonment study can determine whether a deduction can be taken, as well as identifying the value of the assets being replaced. Metal halide lamps are commonly used around manufacturing and industrial buildings. They do have a finite life span, and information such as the make and model will help determine the value at the time of replacement. Additional information needed would be the date the lighting was installed, the date of service, or the date of purchase for new construction. Abandonment may also apply to HVAC assets in your building. When looking at replacing assets in the building, it should be noted that in order to qualify for abandonment, the assets must be discarded so that they cannot be sold or used again.

Professional Ceramic Iron Benefits March 5, 2017

If your hair has suffered damage already, or if you dont want to expose it to too much heat from styling tools, try a professional ceramic iron. With regular hair irons you can risk the health of your locks because they arent able to handle the high temperatures needed for successfully straightening hair without damage. The common consequences of using a regular hair iron are frizz, burning, brittle strands and general heat damage. The plates are generally made with cheap metal and coated with ceramic, and this coating peels away with constant use leaving the metal to make bare contact with your locks and burning them. The peeled coating also causes friction and snagging with each pass of the plates.

Its a much better idea to spend a bit more money on a professional ceramic iron because of all the benefits it can offer you. Regular hair irons may be cheaper but just look at the negative effects they have on your locks! Youre much better off with a professional ceramic iron. Lets have a look at some of the benefits.

The first benefit is healthy styling. Ceramic is universally known as one of the safest styling materials for hair and is the favorite of hair professionals and home users. The properties of ceramic are very beneficial because when heated, this material is able to produce a gentle infrared heat and negative ions to gently straighten hair effectively while retaining natural moisture directly in the cuticle and smoothing the hair shaft to provide you with shiny, vibrant results. Just make sure that the iron you buy features genuine ceramic plates instead of coated ones, because only pure ceramic can give you the best outcome.

The Plant Biotech story March 4, 2017

It all started when an entrepreneur who’d graduated with a Masters degree in plant tissue culture and dabbled in tissue culture all his life, met another bloke who’d spent most of his adult years breeding exotic bromeliads. Enter a third entrepreneur with a strong business background and money to invest, and a small tissue culture laboratory called Plant Culture Ltd. was set up in Warkworth near Auckland, New Zealand. As it grew, so did its clientele, many of whom were from Australia, and with lots of exotic hybrids they wanted to put into culture. A business decision was made. The tissue culture expert, Anil Ghodke, moved to the Sunshine Coast in Australia with a young family in tow, and with the strong support of business partner Paul Robinson, set up Plant Biotech Pty. Ltd.

They started with seven varieties of bromeliads and set about tapping the market. Proficient at making optimal use of available resources, they were able to keep overheads low and prices attractive. Fast forward six years, breakthroughs, speed-bumps, shareholders and lots of hard work coupled with unwavering optimism, Plant Biotech Pty. Ltd. is today, an AQIS accredited, state of the art laboratory producing the widest variety of tissue culture bromeliads in the world, along with exotic tropical plants like ginger, black bamboo and agaves. It is also the only tissue culture laboratory in the world that sells such a wide variety of tissue culture plants online to the local as well as international market, thanks to its new e-store. And believe it or not, the prices are still incredibly attractive.

Plant Biotech’s latest achievement has been to procure permits from the state and federal governments to propagate two varieties of the Australan grass tree Xanthorrhoea glauca and Xanthorrhoea preissii for export, which is otherwise banned by the Australian government.
