Ross Abelow Is On a Mission To Save The Animals

Ross Abelow, a very well known lawyer in the New York area, is on a mission to save as many animals as he can. On January 13th, 2016, Abelow launched a new fundraiser to benefit the many homeless animals throughout the city. He started things off small with the initial goal of raising $5000.

All money will be used to help care for animals who have been left out in the cold during the winter months. Shelters will be able to use the funds for things such as blankets, food, medical care and anything else they need to care for homeless and vulnerable animals.

If you have ever been to New York in the winter, you know the weather can be very cold and rigid. Animals can literally freeze to death if left out too long.

The problem is many animal owners, who without a doubt love their animals, often find themselves in tough situations and unable to properly care for their animals. Instead of taking them to a shelter, which is the best option, many will simply leave the animal out in the cold.

Abelow hopes his fundraiser can help prevent animals from dying due to being left out in the cold. And though this is a tall task, if we all work together we can prevent thousands of animals from dying during the coldest months of the year.

LinkedIn Defines Most Needed Skills Says Ricardo Guimarães


Around the world, and especially in Brazil, businesses and other organizations are relying on the web site LinkedIn for their professional recruiting efforts. More and more expert professionals are posting their profiles, including detailed resumes, onto LinkedIn. Ricardo Guimarães, the president of BMG Bank in Brazil, has reported this important data, based on an article Exame Magazine has released. They listed LinkedIn’s list of the 25 most sought-after skill sets. LinkedIn obtained these statistically, based on recruiter searches done on the web site during all of 2015.

Nine countries were included in the study, including the USA, Brazil, and France. Human resource professionals who are experienced in the areas of employee benefits and compensation is an area that grew 15%. LinkedIn has done much of the important work to help businesses understand the realities of today’s business world and helps connect them with the right professionals that are available for a new job. The proof that this list is accurate is the number and frequency of LinkedIn surveys, together with the amazingly large number of registered users, says Ricardo Guimarães.

People are experiencing introductions to leaders in their respective industries that they could obtain in no other way. Other valuable resources provided by LinkedIn include specific tips and news for certain commercial areas. One area, which Ricardo Guimarães has pointed out actually took a nose dive of a 14% decrease in Brazil, is professional recruiting. He says today’s job market is comprised mostly of Exame’s list:

Ricardo Guimarães says it is most important for every professional to track and retain the skills of current demand. Such professionals will be highly rated in any comparisons employers are doing with others listed as available for work on LinkedIn.
