    Naples Meridian in Brazil to Talk Investments

    in Real Estate

    We are thrilled to be taking part in the INVESTIR USA EXPO beginning next week in Sâo, Paulo Brazil.  This expo is poised to be attended by investor groups, real estate professionals and every day buyers who are seeking to learn about investing in the Sunshine State. Naples Meridian will be the sole representative for the South West Florida region and we will be taking part in a variety of events. First, yours truly Fatima S. Khokhar will be speaking at the Expo as part of the seminar series where my presentation will answer questions such as:
    Why would I buy in Naples? What do I buy? And how do I buy it?  Brazilians have been purchasing property in Miami for years, yet I feel it’s time for them to diversify!  It’s my mission to have them realize that there is another coast to Florida and this destination is ideal for everyone. 
    In addition Naples Meridian will have a presence at the Expo where the group will showcase various properties and new developments that fit into the lifestyle and investment options global buyers seek.
    Our website is gearing up for the show as we have also included our top investment picks that attendees may browse through during the Expo.
     I couldn’t get on a plane and not share this list!
    Take a peek at our website and let me know what you think as these selections are based on properties being in move in ready condition, having a strong rental income and of course their location.
    We are off to run through our final checklist before heading to the airport yet we look forward to recapping the results of the Expo once the final guest has left the building.  At this point we are most curious to see what the reaction of our investment options may be from our friends in the Southern Hemisphere!

    Deepertruth: The Eucharistic Miracle of PATIERNO (NAPLES) Italy 1772

    in Religion

    In 1772, unknown thieves stole a certain number of consecrated Hosts that were found a month later in the lands of Duke Delle Grottolelle underneath manure. However the Sacred Hosts were completely intact. The
    appearance of mysterious lights and a dove made it possible to see where the Hosts were buried. Saint Alphonsus Liguori described this miracle in detail and took the opportunity to re-awake the faith and devotion of the people towards the Eucharist.  

    The Vicar General, Monsignor Onorati drew up the minutes of the diocesan trial which lasted two years from 1772 to 1774. In the minutes it was stated that the appearance of the lights and the intact preservation of the consecrated Hosts “has been and is an authentic miracle operated by God to illustrate more and more the truth of the Catholic dogma and increase the worship towards the Real Presence of Christ in the Holy Sacrament of the Eucharist.”

    Among the various testimonies there were also those of three renowned scientists of the time among which was Dr. Domenico Cotugno of the Royal University of Naples and they all agreed in saying that “The intact preservation of the Hosts cannot be explained with physical principles and they surpass the power of natural agents. Therefore, they must be considered as miraculous.” In 1972 Professor Pietro De Franciscis, teacher of human physiology at the University of Naples confirmed the above statement.

    Great Loop Radio: Proposed Law Would Eliminate Many Anchorages in Florida

    in Travel

    Join us for important up-to-date information on the attempts in Florida to restrict anchoring!

    Florida Senate Bill 1548 titled “An Act Related to Vessel Safety”, addresses many valid safety issues related to the anchoring of derelict boats.  However, it also contains controversial proposals limiting boaters’ ability to anchor in areas “within 200 feet of developed waterfront property” from one hour past sunset until one hour before sunrise.

    The Seven Seas Cruising Association leads a team that includes AGLCA, BoatUS and the National Marine Manufacturers Association (NMMA) in the fight against pending restrictions on the right to anchor in Florida.

    Joining us to talk about SSCA and their efforts in Florida is Dave Skolnick. Dave is a naval architect and marine engineer, a communications professional, and the immediate Past President of SSCA. He works as a member of the SSCA Concerned Cruisers' Committee (CCC) to support cruisers' rights. Dave owns Auspicious Works in Annapolis, Maryland providing communications and navigation equipment services and delivery support to cruisers.

    We'll also be joined by David Doyle, an AGLCA member who is a waterfront landowner in Florida.  He'll share his opinion on the issue.

    Michael Freedman of The Florida Reptile Ranch

    in Pets

    The reptile trade attracts folks of all sorts to its hallowed halls; drawing the interested and sometimes unsuspecting in with the jewel-like living curiosities that fire our senses to a point where we just can't resist keeping them as treasured possessions. Most 'herpers' start their collections with some of the more pedestrian offerings available, then gradually gravitate toward the more challenging and/or pricier fare. However, occasionally somebody seemingly out of nowhere pulls the trigger for the privelege to begin the process with some of the most coveted offerings the market has to offer. In this episode, CK interviews Michael Freedman of The Florida Reptile Ranch and asks him how he managed to build such a potent collection of Ball Python morphs in such a seemingly short period of time. If you enjoy BP morph talk, listen in and get ready for some juicy chatter.
