I just got back from a meeting with some of my colleagues and they were discussing whether or not it is an opportune moment for us to expand into some large foreign markets. At the moment Brazil for example is in a deep recession and there is a lot of political turmoil as there are massive demonstrations calling on the president to resign from office. We would actually be more concerned about where they are headed rather than where they are right at this exact moment. So we decided to talk to an expert. I found Brasil Insight Capital and called them up to set up a meeting. My boss was going to be the one who was going to do this, but then one of the people he knows started to talk about the Zika virus. Of course that is some very scary stuff and he called me up to his office right after they spooked him. It really seems as though that Zika is a true catastrophe, because they have already proven that the virus cause brain damage to unborn babies. So far they have very little way to remedy the epidemic. You have to think about how to get rid of the mosquitoes until you figure out how to actually combat the virus. A vaccine is not going to be in the cards for the foreseeable future, so the only way that you can combat it’s spread is to try to get rid of the insects that carry it. I have been reading some interesting things about that, one of the things that you can do is to make the mosquito more susceptible to the virus that they are carrying. That is something they are trying to do with malaria and they hope that it can work with this virus too.

I am getting pretty old, and that is why I decided to buy a new house in Florida. I know it is a bit of a cliché to get old and retire to Florida. But it is something that I am going to do, and something that I have wanted to do for a long time. I want to check into Florida Direct TV because I know that I am going to have a lot of free time in my retirement, and since I am going to have a lot of free time, I am clearly going to have a lot of time to watch television.
But television can get pretty boring if you don’t have access to a lot of different channels, and a lot of different types of programming. I had a really limited package where I only had a few channels to select from for a couple of years, and I found that to be pretty annoying. It was not ideal at all, but rather I found myself watching a lot of the same shows over and over again. You don’t really realize how often a channel will repeat stuff that it has already aired until you only have a few channels to choose from.
I also want to make sure that I get a lot of movie channels. I want to be able to choose from at least 30 different movies to watch at any given time. I know that I could just buy a lot of movies to have in my house, and then choose from them, but it seems like it would be a good idea to take suggestions, and the movies that different channels play can be my suggestions. Anyway, I need to sit down and think about if there are any other considerations that should come into getting television set up at my new place.
