    Ramin Mesgarlou - Global Wealth Trade

    in Self Help

     
    In February 2005, at age 36, Ramin Mesgarlou founded Global Wealth Trade in his home office in Ottawa, Canada. The company since has become one of the world's most prestigious luxury designer fashion house competing in the same market such as Harry Winston, Cartier, Gucci, Louis Vuitton and other bench marks alike.
    Ramin’s unique business plan was a quick success and within the first seven years the company served clients and Luxury Consultants in almost 60 countries in all continents.
     
     
    “When a few people buy in to your idea perhaps you got lucky, when a few hundred people buy in perhaps you have a sale but when you have thousands of people who see your vision and promote the cause than it is a success”says Ramin.
    When you take a look at the unprecedented success his company has experienced “success” seems to be an inadequate word to describe the company’s journey and track record. For starters GWT Corp has been the fastest expanding and growing luxury designer fashion house since 2007 experiencing 297% growth per year in the first 5 years. “It’s a humbling experience when the world’s attention is on you” says  Ramin  referring to the dozens of articles, recognitions and awards his company has received in a short time. Amongst many others GWT Corp has received recognitions from Businessforhom.org “Best Opportunity”  three years running, “Company Of The Month”, Direct Sales Business Journal, “Luxury Designer Of The Year”, Viva International. The company’s prestige line FERI MOSH 21K has received several recognitions and accolades from Canada’s main industry publication Canadian Jewellers Magazine.

    There's an App for it - reducing STDs among teens

    in Health

    According to the CDC, one sexually active teenager in four already has a sexually-transmitted disease.  They are growing at an epidemic rate – 10 million youths contracted an STD last year alone.
    In the United States, young people (15-24) make up just over one-fourth of the sexually active population, but account for half of the 10 million cases of sexually-transmitted disease (STDs) each year, according to the Center for Disease Control (CDC).  46% of high school students have had sexual intercourse and are at risk for HIV and STDs.  While there is a national effort to educate youth about HIV before they begin engaging in sexual activities, about one in three high school students did not use a condom during their last sexual intercourse.
    Many people blame mobile technology for promoting sexual activity.  There are some creative new efforts to use mobile technology to raise awareness.  In the last few weeks, the Bloomberg Administration in New York City launched a controversial mobile app intended to reduce teen pregnancy called “Teens in NYC Protection+” and a judge ordered the morning after pill, Plan B, be available for females of all ages.  Both are aimed at reducing pregnancy for teens and reduce STDs.
    Qpid.me (www.QpidMe.com) has a new mobile technology that is doing its part to reduce the spread of STDs.  “Technology is repeatedly blamed for young people having sex.  We are turning that around and using technology to empower youth to make better sexual health decisions both on and offline,” said Ramin Bastani, founder and CEO of Qpid.me - a free, simple way to access and share verified STD results in a completely private, secure and unique way.
