US strong, rest of the world riding the bear says LJM Developments CEO Sep 1, 2014 05:10PM

Burlington, Canada (PRWEB) September 01, 2014

The United States "currency, stock market and real estate markets are showing clear signs of progress" states Liaquat Mian of LJM Developments in his recent blog entry. The global market as a whole is still a precarious place to be, but on the whole, the North American region is stable and on track to become a bull market by June of next year (Stockwatch by Edmond Jackson, Aug 29 2014).

The US is seeing signs consistent with a recovery, posits Mian, if you look at all three major financial and economic indicators; currency, real estate and the stock markets. The US dollar has rebounded globally (Finances Forex Analysis by H.S. Borji, Aug 28, 2014) showing strong growth against many major currencies including the Euro, Yen and the Pound. The stock market has experienced fluctuations and will continue to do so, Mian believes until after the Dow Jones breaks through the 18,000 mark. Even though the housing and real estate sectors looked slow to respond in 2014, part of the delayed reaction is due to the slow start to job growth explains Mian, but underlying pressures of built up demand (National Association of Realtors | Walter Molony, May 15 2014) and lower inventory will gradually show through in 2015. On the whole, Canada and the US should expect a healthy period of growth through 2015 according to Mian.

However, the rest of the world is still on unstable ground. "It is obvious to many that the unrest in places like the Middle East, the Ebola crisis in Africa, and the changing leadership in South American countries is driving uncertainty in emerging markets," says Liaquat.

Even in areas like Dubai, a metropolis that has a healthy investment environment, investors are looking for safer markets to invest into explains Mian - with a projected $175 billion USD available for investment and almost one-third slated for the North American real estate market. Part of this is because the underlying fundamentals of the Dubai market are expected to cause a recession and downturn by 2016, postulates Mian.

In currency and interest rate markets, Mian projects the US dollar to remain strong, the Euro to drop below $1.30 USD, Canadian and Australian dollars to remain stable where they are, and the Sterling to rise to $1.60 USD, making a small gain. In most western markets, Mian projects interest rates to continue to remain where they are through 2020, in order to assure the recovery.

Mian believes that market fundamentals show the path for investors lay in the North American market through 2015, in stocks and real estate.

The event will be taking place at the DoubleTree Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona on April 10th and 11th.

Together with PPHA, the ASBA is the only academy able to deliver big name former NFL players to speak on their experiences dealing with the life-altering effects of Obstructive Sleep Apnea (OSA). With the 2015 Sleep & Wellness conference just over seven months away, PPHA has already confirmed several speakers that will be presenting at this years conference. Hall of Fame defensive back Mike Haynes, two-time Pro Bowl wide receiver Roy Green, Super Bowl Champion offensive lineman Derek Kennard and former Cardinal tight end Mark Walczak are among the lineup to present this year. The ASBA has proven to be a great partner for Pro Player Health Alliance; PPHA President David Gergen, is set to be on the cover of the fall edition of the Sleep & Wellness magazine offered by the academy.

Taking a brief look back on the 2014 conference, speakers like William Dement, MD and Emmanuel Mignot MD, PhD brought sleep medicine star power to the American Sleep & Breathing Academy. There is no doubt the ASBA will have yet another impressive speaker line-up in store for 2015. In addition to the members of PPHA that will be presenting, the academy is pleased to announce that Dr. John Tucker, lead lecturer for Henry Schein's Sleep Complete program, will be presenting at this years' conference. Dr. Tucker is considered by many to be one of the nation's foremost authorities in dental sleep medicine. "You will not want to miss Dr. Tucker's presentation, his ability to keep the audience engaged and command the room is top-notch," says David Gergen, Executive Director of the ASBA Dental Division. Another newcomer to the ASBA this year will be Republican nominee for the Attorney General seat of Arizona, Mark Brnovich. Mr. Brnovich will be speaking about the importance of a good nights' sleep and the direct correlation to day time performance and functionality. As a former Federal and State prosecutor, Mr. Brnovich is well aware that sleep is a vital ingredient to success in your professional life. Returning to the 2015 conference, will be former ASBA contributor Congressman Marty Russo.

Announcement: releases "Guitar Lesson on Creating Blues Licks - How to Create Pentatonic Licks" Sep 1, 2014 04:20PM

(PRWEB) September 01, 2014

"Today I want to use A Major Pentatonic instead of Minor Pentatonic", says Claude Johnson. Claude demonstrates the first lick as follows; open 5th string and then 2nd fret of the 4th string with first finger and do a hammer-on to the 4th fret with 3rd finger and finish on the 2nd fret of the 3rd string with first finger. "I go over some of these basic concepts such as hammer-on's and vibrato in my course Killer Guitar Control Secrets", says Johnson. Claude says you should really play with the feel and rhythm to make the lick different and to fit what you are playing it over, "there is no wrong way of playing it". Claude continues by playing variations of the lick by adding more notes to it by adding the 4th fret of the 3rd string with 3rd finger and the 2nd fret of the 2nd string with first finger and the 5th fret with 4th finger and those same two frets on the first string as well.
