Ten Salzburg Travel Tips – What To See And Do In Salzburg, Austria

Salzburg is one of Europe’s most popular cities. Although relatively small, (population around 150,000) it has an abundance of sight-seeing attractions and provides tourists with an inspirational combination of mountain views and historic monuments.The city of Salzburg is located in the Salzburg region of Austria close to the border with Bavaria, (Germany). Its name means “Salt Castle” referring to the deposits of salt in the area that made the city wealthy as a centre of the medieval salt trade and its beautiful white castle.Salzburg is an incredibly beautiful city that has many outstanding examples of both Romanesque and Baroque architecture. Everywhere you look you will see reminders that this city was birthplace of Mozart. His memory is preserved and celebrated in several museums and through regular musical events that take place in the city.The following, top ten Salzburg travel tips are for things to see and do within the city itself. All of them can be easily reached without requiring any transport1. Above all else, do not miss visiting the Salzburg Castle Dominating the city, this magnificent, white, fairy-tale, castle is Europe’s best preserved and largest intact medieval fortress. It is the kind of place you want to look at from every possible angle. Walking in the narrow streets of the old town, you turn each corner hoping to be provided with yet another view of the majestic building sitting at the top of the overlooking Monchsberg rock. When you are walking the hills opposite the Monchsberg, you are treated to views of the castle across the valley (see tip 10 below). When you are walking around the Monchsberg itself you constantly look up at the mighty fortress walls, towering above you. From here and from the castle ramparts you are provided with spectacular views over the city and the surrounding countryside below. Inside the castle, the superbly organised tours reveal many fascinating features and historical facts from its origins in 1077 right through to the twentieth century wars.2. The Salzburg Dom – the city’s cathedralThe cathedral is another great place to soak up the history of Salzburg. It was opened in 1628 on the site of earlier cathedrals, the earliest of which was built in 767.3. St Peters AbbeyThis Benedictine monastery is the oldest active monastery in Austria, dating back to 696 AD. It is located in oldest quarter of Salzburg and will provide many fascinating insights into the history of the city.4. Getreidegasse – Salzburg’s medieval shopping precinctSalzburg’s most fashionable shops can be found in Getreidegasse, a beautiful, medieval alley, almost a mile long, running the length of the old town. Even if some of the shops are overpriced, just strolling along the street is an experience not to be missed.5. Mozartplatz – Mozart SquareThis is the heart of the city and is dominated by a statue of the great composer. The statue is considered to bear only a poor resemblance to Mozart and reveals a glaring historical error inasmuch as it portrays him holding a pencil; pencils were not invented until at least twenty years after the time of Mozart’s death in 1791.6. Mozart BirthplaceThe house where Mozart was born in 1756 has been converted into a not-to-be-missed museum.7. Mozart’s ResidenceNot to be confused with the composers’ birthplace, this wonderful museum is to be found in the new town and is the house where the Mozart family lived between 1773 and 1780.8. Residenzplatz and ResidenzThe Residenzplatz is Salzburg’s largest square. It houses the fifty foot high, Residenzplatz Fountain, probably the most beautiful baroque fountain that exists outside of Italy. The Residenz itself was the residence of Salzburg’s Prince-Archbishops and is open all day for yet another not-to-be-missed place to visit.9. Mirabell GardensThe Mirabell Gardens is the place where the children in the Sound of Music danced around the statue of Pegasus singing “Do Re Mi”. The gardens belong to the Mirabell Palace that was built by an Archbishop in 1606 as a residence for his mistress and children! Today it is the office of the Mayor of Salzburg but parts of it are open to tourists.10. KauzinerbergThis beautiful hill reaches a height of 2087 feet but there is no need to walk all the way to the top in order to enjoy stunning views of Salzburg in the valley below. The beginning of any walk will take you past the six Stations of the Cross that were built in the early 18th century. The Capuchin monastery which is also on the lower slopes is most definitely worth visiting.

Eight Tips When Buying Commercial Real Estate

If you are planning to purchase a commercial property, make it a point to contact a real estate agent who specializes in commercial property transactions.A commercial property is a worthwhile investment that will give you returns in years to come. If you want to make the most of your money today, investing in a commercial real estate is one of the things you should consider.Below are helpful tips when buying a commercial property:1. Upon finding a suitable commercial real estate for your needs, make sure that you have a valuation prepared for it and get a Land Information Memorandum from the local council. These will provide you with more information in assessing the value of the property and its potentials.2. Getting a pre-approval is a good way of saving time by knowing that commercial property you can afford. It would be a waste of your time looking at $2 million buildings if you can only afford up to $300,000.3. Take into consideration a low down payment and long-term loans to preserve your capital for better use and keeps your cash flow high. Furthermore, it also allows you to redeploy the capital savings to other profit-earning business activities.4. Be aware of the market you will be buying into. Hire a knowledgeable commercial agent to find a new property for you. A competent and reliable real estate agent save you time, update you on comparable sales, area demographics, plans for growth or a new development in the area.5. Make sure that you purchase real estate for the right reasons. Determine if you will benefit and profit more from buying a commercial property than in merely renting it.6. Buy more square footage than what you need now because you can always expand it. Furthermore, it will give you more rental income.7. Decide on what kind of entity you use to purchase the property, with options including buying as an individual, buying through a trust fund or buying through a company. Your attorney and accountant can help you decide on the best ownership vehicle to use.8. Consider to collaborate with another business owner in your EPC if it would be hard to come up with the down payment. Keep in mind that your new partners’ operating business will have to be examined too in order to commit to your loan. Do not forget that you should always use good judgment when looking for a business partner. Make sure to stipulate clearly the buy-out provisions in your agreement and other documents ahead.The foundation of a successful purchase of a commercial real estate is the return you will get from it. Therefore, the value of the lease is principal. Make certain that you check the existing lease’s term and the financial strength of the tenant.If the tenant is a company, make sure to check whether a representative of the company has provided any personal guarantee. Know more about buying commercial properties from your real estate agent or from a professional who can guide you in choosing the right commercial real estate to purchase.

For College-Bound Students, Is There an Upside to the (Economic) Downturn?

If the news media didn’t do an adequate job of reminding us that the economic outlook seems like nothing but doom and gloom, mud-slinging presidential campaign ads certainly do. For anyone about to graduate from college and enter the job market, it’s daunting. Those about to pay for college are no less fearful of their future, but in watching student’s behavior over the last few years, I believe there may be some positive behavioral changes attributable to the faltering economy.

When times were good (monetarily), fewer students thought about the economic ramifications of the decisions they made regarding college selection and the accompanying price tag, but also the decisions that followed that affected employability and lifestyle. Talking to students about accumulating significant debt was previously like talking about monopoly money. Very few teens seemed to really wrap their minds around the impact that significant debt (credit card, educational, etc) would have on their lives. Often these students just wanted to pursue the degree from their institution of choice with little thought about price or the amount of debt it would take to fund this education.

Attitudes seem to be changing, however. Not only do news outlets uniformly deliver the same dismal economic message, but for many, the message is driven home in a much more personal way. When your friends and family who recently graduated from college cannot find adequate employment after months of trying, or your parents have faced layoffs or cuts in overtime hours, it brings the big economic picture into our homes in a way that shapes some difficult conversations.

I see, for example, students who are incredibly serious about going to medical school. Many of them, aware of the potential debt burden of 4 years of private undergraduate education and 4 years of medical school, talk much more significantly about foregoing the first four years at some prestigious, private institution for four years at an in-state public university because of the potential long-term impact on student debt load. (I am making the assumption that financial aid would not make public, in-state and private colleges the same price.)

Other students recognize that because of circumstances beyond their parents’ control, paying for a high priced school may no longer be an option. For students who may qualify for financial aid, they often understand what it means to spread their risks. Reach schools and safety schools also have an economic meaning… ones you know you will be able to afford and ones that you hope you can afford but may or may not be able to. I work with a large population of upper middle class students. These families are largely college educated and make enough money so that they won’t qualify for much financial aid, but they are by no means independently wealthy and the thought of writing a check for $50,000/year for a private college ranges from daunting to impossible, particularly when there are multiple college-bound kids in the same household.

I am also hopeful that the daily bombardment of dim economic news has made students make career choices more deliberately. Students who want to pursue a career in teaching, for example, often realize that, given the budget cuts implemented in their own school districts, jobs are not as plentiful as they once were, and given the number of teachers who have been laid off, the number of applicants for any given job is staggering, often numbering into the hundreds. Should that dissuade a student from pursuing a career about which they are passionate? Absolutely not! Instead, I encourage students pursuing a career in a crowded field like education or law to think about how they might make themselves stand out in the job market. What skills or specializations are more in demand that might allow them to tailor their skill-set to better fit demand? In the legal field, for example, students with a science background who can pursue a career in patent or green/environmental law may find themselves better positioned in a crowded market than someone without those specific skills. Teachers in certain fields, like special education, math and science, or teachers of English language learners are likely to have an easier time finding jobs than some of their counterparts. Students may not know exactly what training or specialization makes them more appealing in the job market, but when they hear that a job posting in their district is getting three-hundred applicants or more, it occurs to many of them that they need to do something in order to stand out.

I do a silent cheer when a student tells me that they’re choice of college majors is shaped, at least in some small part, by future job trends and demands. We (as a society) often ask teens and young adults, “What do you want to major in?” or “what kind of career do you want to pursue?” I only hope we guide them toward the information about trends and demands so they can optimize their chances of securing gainful employment. For my part, I will share one of my go-to sources for this kind of information. The Bureau of Labor Statistics, Occupational Outlook Handbook (available at http://www.bls.gov/ooh ) provides great information on job trends, pay, educational requirements and much, much more.

The downturn has, hopefully, served as a teachable moment for the younger generation. Rainy days do happen. Belt tightening and difficult choices are inevitable for many of us, but, most importantly, there are always multiple pathways to success. Success may not mean attending the most selective college with the most name recognition. It may simply mean graduating… however that needs to happen.

(NOTE: You will not know if or how much financial aid funding you will receive until you have applied for and received financial aid packages from all of the colleges to which you have applied; however, you can get a good idea of what you can expect your family contribution to be by using an Expected Family Contribution calculator like the one at http://www.finaid.org/calculators/finaidestimate.phtml

Prospecting For Commercial Real Estate Listings

When you prospect in commercial real estate sales or leasing situations, you will meet with and will talk to many people on a daily basis. The more people you do this with the better. Prospecting is critical to your business growth and listing processes in any market.

It is interesting to consider what prospecting situation you find yourself most often in. The answer is different for everyone as each person has communication preferences and methods of approach that works for them over other standard approaches. It is therefore most important to prospect in the way that suits your character and business style.

Your daily prospecting method should be the thing that works for you and gives you the best results and could be any or all of:

  • Telephone
  • Door to door
  • Networking events
  • Referrals
  • Face to face contact

In all respects the prospecting and meeting process will be enhanced if you refine it and use a small number of statements that gain the attention of the prospect. We call these statements ‘Prospect Value Statements’ (PVS) and they must relate to you and your commercial or investment real estate market.

Prospect Value Statements

The ‘Prospect Value Statement’ is one of a kind and should match you, your business, and your focus. It should clearly declare and communicate the fundamental reason why your organisation exists and why you’re selling or leasing commercial investment property from the prospects perspective. It is the most important thing that you can learn and use in commercial real estate. That being said, it is amazing how many salespeople in commercial real estate do not master the concept and some never even know about it. The PVS is such an important statement to your conversion process that we will spend time now on it in helping you design your own.

So why is the PVS so important? It succinctly, clearly, and precisely defines what you do and how you do it in commercial real estate. Better still, it does so in a way that your clients and prospects can see and know why they should do business with you. The PVS will tell them that you are better than the competition agents in the market.

The PVS plays a role in just about every business opportunity and prospecting situation that you come across.

Sample of a Commercial PVS

‘We assist our commercial investor clients in the industrial market at Salisbury to find new tenants that match their investment plan or cash flow expectations, and therefore enjoy a more stable occupancy. We do this by canvassing all tenant changes in the region for the coming 3 years and directing deals to the desirable tenants at the right time for our clients.’

Sample Structure of a PVS

‘We assist our commercial clients (companies, tenants, or investors) in the … industry (or business, or market segment, or location) to … and enjoy … We do this by …’

To make this work, it’s important for you to know and really understand what end result benefit you actually deliver to your commercial real estate prospects, customers and clients (be they landlords, tenants or investors). You also need to know exactly what benefit your prospects or clients actually want to gain, enjoy, achieve, or have in this market. Your PVS is matched to the end user of your services at all times.

‘Your PVS will also change over time as it will have relevance to the current market conditions and the pressures that your prospects need resolved.’

So What Results and Benefits do Prospects Need?

Before you start to create a PVS or a series of them for you and your business, let’s define some of the results and benefits that are typical desired outcomes for a client or prospect in a commercial real estate sale or lease situation. Consider your market. What are the priorities of the prospects that you deal with today?

Commercial Real Estate Lease situations:

  • Stable tenant
  • Good rent
  • Long lease
  • Major tenants
  • Quality tenants
  • Ability to refurbish
  • Make good obligations
  • Growth of rent
  • Stability of rent
  • Sound lease document
  • Resolving vacancies faster

Commercial Real Estate Sales situations:

  • Quick sale
  • Higher price
  • Confidential sale
  • Method of sale
  • Faster settlement
  • Good enquiry
  • Good promotion and marketing
  • Comprehensive market coverage
  • Sale to investors
  • Sale to owner occupiers

Given these benefits and your market trends now in your location, you should be able to easily construct a series of PVS models that suit the prospects that you deal with. Ideally you should be able to quickly call on 2 or 3 of these statements in any prospecting conversation to match the needs or interest of the prospect you are talking to.

Women’s Fitness Tips For Saggy Breasts

More women than ever are having cosmetic surgery on their breasts, some have implants, some have breast size reductions. But there are a group of women who are almost at their wits end – the ones whose breasts sag, have gone south, have married their knees, whatever you want to call it. These women are sick of feeling unattractive, so what can they do if they either don’t want to, or can’t afford to go under the surgeons knife?

Lets have a look at why breasts sag in the first place. The main reason is that the pectoral muscles (just under the breasts) have not been kept in good shape, sometimes it is due to breastfeeding but if these muscles are not kept toned, they tend to shrink, which in turn causes the nipples to aim for the floor!

So, I have compiled the three most effective exercises to firm your boobs up again! While I’m on the subject of exercise, just a reminder about the importance of breathing properly, if you breathe properly when exercising you will get your muscles working to maximum capacity.

These are the two rules:

Breathe out as the ‘effort’ part of the movement is performed and breathe in as you return to the start position.

The Exercises:

The Half Press Up

Set- Get down on your hands and knees in a press-up position. Place your hands just over shoulder width apart and make sure that your knees are further back than your hips.

Movement- Bend your elbows slowly into a right angle and then push back to the starting position.

Advanced tip- As you progress with this exercise, try moving your hands slightly further apart. The movement will be harder to complete but it will have more of an effect.

The Oblique Sit-up

Set- Lie flat on your back with your knees bent, your legs apart and your feet flat on the floor. Put your hands on the back of your head.

Movement- Bring your torso up and bring your right elbow over to touch your left knee. Then twist the body and make your left elbow touch your right knee. Then return to the starting position. On the next repetition reverse these instructions.

Advanced tip- No real science on this one, just do more repetitions!

Flat Fly

Set- Lie flat on your back with your knees bent and your feet flat on the floor. Take a weight in each hand and place your arms stretched out either side of you.

Movement- With your arms slightly bent, bring them up so they meet directly above your head. Then slowly bring the arms back down to the starting position, stretching your chest high and wide as you do.

Advanced tip- Again as you progress and get stronger, when you bringing your arms back to the start position, do not let the weights, your hands or arms touch the floor.

Complete these exercises at this rate:

Days 1, 3 and 5- All three exercises, 5 reps each

Days 2, 4 and 6- Rest days

Days 7, 9, 11 and 13- All three exercises but now at 8 reps each

Days 8, 10, 12 and 14- rest days

Days 15-21- Choose any five days to do all three exercises at 8 reps each

Days 22-28- As above but increase to 12 reps each

Days 29-42- All three exercises everyday at 12 reps each

Once you have completed this program, make sure you keep the exercising at a constant level, after all of that, the last thing you want to happen is for them to head south again!

With the explosion of web 2.0, videos can be supported by most sites and they can be hosted cheaply too. A vlog is short for videoblog. It is a blog which uses video as the primary content as technically it is linked to within a videoblog post. A vlog is accompanied by supporting text, image, and additional meta data to provide a context for the video. Vlog like Blogs are updated regularly, generally includes personal reflections, comments and often take advantage of RSS for syndication to other web sites and aggregator software (rss readers).

o A presentation of services
o A CEO giving a speech
o An explanation of a procedure
o Showing different uses of a product

Why Shop in a Shopping Mall?

A shopping mall changes the experience of shopping into more of a day out than simply a trip to the shops.

Shopping malls will also make the shopping experience a lot more convenient as there are many different types of shops all available under one roof, there is also more spaces to fit these shops as most shopping malls are multi-storey.

Doing your shopping indoors can also be more pleasant than shopping outside, as the weather may make the journey from one shop to another unpleasant. If for example it’s raining heavily outside or it’s too hot, a shopping mall can provide the perfect environment in which to do your shopping. These malls are often air-conditioned so are often very peasant places to visit in very hot countries where heat exhaustion and sunburn can be a very real problem, particularly for elder people, the very young and people who may come from abroad and are not used to the hot climate.

A shopping mall is also an ideal place to own a shop as there’s a lot of foot traffic and people who might happen across your shop that might not have otherwise. In a shopping mall your shop is on display, whereas if you were located in a side street, away from the town centre you may experience a lack of potential customers. Being located in a shopping mall may mean that the lease for the shop is more expensive, but it will more than be paid back by the massive increase in foot traffic.

If you are doing your shopping in a mall, you may also notice that there are often places where you can eat, this allows you to take a break from shopping and enjoy a nice meal while you at it. Many of these food stores are very popular franchises who make food people know and love for a bargain price. As well as food vendors, there are often coffee shops for people who just want to sit and enjoy a nice cup of coffee whilst they take a break. The food and coffee shops are an ideal place to sit and wait for someone you may be meeting, or take a moment to consider items you have viewed before you go back and commit to a purchase.

Some indoor shopping establishments also contain well equipped Cinemas featuring the latest 3D Imax technology and the latest Hollywood movies. Some shopping malls also contain bars for people who may like an alcoholic drink or a game of pool.

Some places may even feature entertainment which is laid on for the customer such as, musicians or street performers who can entertain crowds of people and also draw in additional foot traffic to the nearby shops.

So to sum it up, shopping malls are for more than just shopping, they are a place where you can have a good day out and see many sights you may not see elsewhere, they also provide protection from the environment and the convenience of having many shops together in close proximity to each other, reducing the amount of walking that has to be done.

Employment Over 50

Facing sudden unemployment is bad news for most people, but to find yourself on the job market when in your 50′s can be very worrying. Its natural think that you will have big trouble getting a career over 50 – however this train of thought is what can lead to problems finding employment.Try to look on the bright side and concentrate on what you can offer potential new employers. Don’t focus on the fact that you think you are too old to gain employment – this negativity will come through whenever you speak to people.One thing you are able to offer is experience – that one elusive thing that younger job hunters are desperate for! Make sure you advertise how experienced you are when putting your CV together. Do not put your age or date of birth on your CV – employers are not allowed to discriminate against age now, and its not mandatory to be on the CV so leave it out.Again – looking on the positive side when looking for employment over 50 – take this as a good opportunity to go for a career change.
