Last June, CVS, Consumer Value Stores, bought Target’s pharmacy department for $1.9 billion. This comes to $1.14 million for each Target pharmacy. Over 1,660 pharmacies owned by Target will become CVS pharmacies in 47 of the 50 states. Only Vermont, Alaska, and Hawaii aren’t participating in the CVS change over. Target pharmacies will remain in business in Hawaii and Alaska. Kantar Retail analyst Amy Koo says that the buyout is a win-win situation for both Target and CVS.
CVS, acting as a subcontract player, makes more than 10 times in profit over the Target Pharmacies. The two companies share the same color logos of red and white. They sell similar products. On Wednesday, February 4, 2016, the first six Target pharmacies to be reopened by CVS happened in Charlotte, Virginia. The complete change over should take place within the next six to eight months. The Target pharmacies will remain open during the transition.
CVS is the second largest pharmacy chain in the United States, first established in Lowell, Massachusetts in May 1963. Walgreens is the number one chain pharmacy business in the United States according to Marc Sparks. CVS plans to operate their newly acquired Target pharmacies within the retail store. CVS has most recently acquired Omnicare, a corporate pharmacy supplier, last May.
Have you ever stop to think about how many homeless animals there are nationwide? Statistically speaking, there are over 5,000 animal shelters housing around 20 dogs and more cats per shelter. On average, 60 % of these animals will end up put down and only a small amount of animals actually return to their present owners from the shelters. Only about 10 % of these animals are spayed or neutered putting us at risk for thousands of unwanted puppies and kittens born each day. According to research, only 25% of animals in shelters will find a loving home. This leaves thousands to roam the streets looking for food and shelter daily. Ross Abelow, a local New York attorney, is trying to help the situation by raising money to take care of these animals. He has a go fund me page for strays that will help animal shelters to feed and house these animals until loving homes are available.
Ross Abelow is a wonderful man. He began his go fund me page campaign because he wanted to help the animal shelters take control of the homeless pet population in New York. He hopes to raise around $5000 or more to buy food, blankets, and medicine for these homeless pets. He also hopes that more people will volunteer to help out at these shelters. Volunteers help to cut down the cost of running the animal shelters. This can allow more money to go toward training and marketing these animals for adoption.
Family attorneys do more than draw up living or estate wills. A family attorney can help with most any situation a family member finds themselves in. Ross Abelow is a family man and a family attorney. He loves helping his local citizens with their legal needs. He is responsible for many contracts and proceedings. He will represent his clients in court when there is a need. Ross works with other lawyers providing the counsel that is necessary for New York. He hopes that each person will become more aware of how hard it is to feed all of the animals loose in New York city alone. The more people that join in to help with this project, the more money the city will have to care for these innocent animals. Donate now to the go fund me page campaign-Ross Abelow is sponsoring.

It is encouraging to me that companies such as QNET are becoming such a great benefit to the women of the world. In my readings online I have come upon articles about QNET’s involvement in encouraging women in their business, who make up at least 74% of the independent associate workforce world wide. According to Khaled Diab, QNET’s Regional General Manager, most women have the best business attitude and work hard to build successful associate businesses in his direct sales sector.
The Agency of International Development in the U.S. (USAID) has stated: “Progress cannot be delivered in a vacuum. For societies to thrive, women and girls must have access to education, healthcare, and technology. They must have control of resources, lands, and markets. And they must have equal rights and equal opportunities as breadwinners, peace-builders and leaders.” I too agree that the hand that rocks the cradle is the hand that causes our societies to progress.
Opportunities for women in the area of direct sales businesses are opening up everywhere, enabling them to become true entrepreneurs of their own private companies. Direct sales have flexible hours that women need to balance work and family life. QNET, as I understand, is one of the biggest of Asia’s direct sales companies. The company is a big supporter of women through their involvement in International Women’s Day. All the women associates in the QNET family can achieve their dreams of success and wealth, because QNET management did not make the mistake of overlooking the importance of women (Glassdoor reviews), unlike some companies I know of.
They are a member of the ‘Direct Selling Association of Malaysia, Singapore, and the Philippines.’ They have over 2 dozen offices spread over 100 different countries, including Dubai, Mussafa, and Abu Dhabi. QNET donates to various causes in each country they have a presence in and involves their employees in their philanthropy as well.
It isn’t every day that Snoop Dogg shows up on your front doorstep with his 10 person crew. This is however what happened to Sanjay Shah. Shah was nervous at first and didn’t really know what to do, but it quickly became a very pleasant afternoon of joyful conversation in the garden. Snoop Dogg asked about all of the differences in the two cultures and then went on to speak of his experience in the music industry. This meeting with Snoop Dogg left Shah so inspired that he wanted to create a music festival. This music festival was the type of festival that would make a difference. The cause that Shah decided to focus on was Autism. Thus the festival “Autism Rocks” was born. This wasn’t a small festival either. Large name artists like Lenny Kravitz and Prince have played on the stage at Autism Rocks.
Shah is an individual who has been very successful in both the world of business and the world of philanthropy. There are many that regard Shah as one of the masterminds in the world of investing. He has been very successful as a fund manager and has been able to gain huge returns for himself personally and the investors that he has worked with. There are very few investors who have the skills that Shah has. He has an uncanny ability to act on an investment opportunity the moment that it arises.
Shah has changed the course of his career and started to focus much more on philanthropy lately. There are many lives that can be touched by the autism research that has been taking place due to the funds that Shah has helped to raise. With his son suffering from Autism, it is easy to see why Shah has become so passionate about autism research. Shah is very passionate about finding a cure for this disease and will stop at nothing to help find a cure.
