Advanced Degrees Party Highlights National Singles Week, Sept 16-22

Well-educated singles have a tough time finding a compatible romantic partner.

San Rafael, CA, August 25, 2012 — (For Immediate Release) Contact: Tom Andrews, 415/507-9962

Single professionals of all ages with a Doctorate or Master’s Degree are invited to meet new single friends, Thursday, September 20, 2011, 7-9pm. This annual event is being held this year at Yoshi’s, 1330 Fillmore Street, San Francisco CA 94115. $10 at the door includes a fun Mixer Game, accompanied by complimentary appetizers for those who arrive on time. There is free parking.

“Only 7% of the adult population in the U.S. has an advanced degree,” says Rich Gosse, Chairman of The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, “so it’s tough to meet friends on your own educational level. Single women with advanced degrees find it particularly difficult to find a romantic partner, because most men are intimidated by highly intelligent, well-educated women. That’s why we schedule this party. Single Professionals with advanced degrees deserve the opportunity to meet their peers. Studies have revealed that marriages are most likely to survive if both spouses share the same educational level.

“This year’s Advanced Degrees Party takes place during National Singles Week, September 16 – 22, 2012, the only week dedicated to the recognition of the special contributions of all singles,” says Mr. Gosse. “The first National Singles Week was in 1982. The week has been declared by official proclamation of Governors throughout America, and is listed in Chase’s Calendar of Events, a directory of such events for the country.”

Rich Gosse is the author of eight books on dating, including You CAN Hurry Love, Singles Guide to the Bay Area, and A Good Man Is EASY to Find (“This is a great book! Oprah Winfrey). His entertaining advice on dating has been featured by ABC, BBC, CBS, CNN, CNBC, Fox, MSNBC, NBC, Oprah, The Wall Street Journal, Newsweek, Business Week, Cosmopolitan, Playboy, Playgirl, London Times, The Australian, New Zealand Herald, etc. Mr. Gosse is available to the news media for interviews by calling 415-479-3800.

The Society of Single Professionals, the world’s largest non-profit singles organization, is the official sponsor of National Singles Week. Anyone wishing more information about the Advanced Degrees Party and many more parties for single professionals may visit or call 415/507-9962.

Inspirational Religious Book by Sarah Udoh-Grossfurthner Released World-Wide

Breakout Non-Fiction Work Titled, “BUT HE CALLS ME BLESSED! When the Unbelievable Happens to Believers”, an Inspirational Religious Book by Sarah Udoh-Grossfurthner Released World-Wide.

Vienna, Austria (August 25, 2012) — At the age of 15 Rhea, a young Christian girl, was raped by a gang of gun-wielding robbers during a church convention. There followed 18 years of extreme psychological trauma during which Rhea went from loving God (as she had been brought up to by her deeply religious parents) to hating Him with a passion. According to Rhea, at one point in her life only the loathing she developed for her own self could equal her hatred for God and all things godly. This hatred, she said, was so virulent that it became an ordeal to take a simple bath, as she could not stand to touch herself. How Rhea went from this awful extreme back to loving God all over again is woven by Sarah in this pain-filled but extremely inspirational narration.

Rhea’s is just one of the five remarkable stories in Sarah Udoh-Grossfurthner’s, BUT HE CALLS ME BLESSED! When the Unbelievable Happens to Believers – ISBN 9781622870387. The book aims to encourage by showing that it is possible to have hope even in the most desperate of situations. According to Sarah, “There’s always a nugget of wisdom to be derived from any given situation, it all depends on who’s doing the mining.”

What readers have to say about Sarah’s book…

“The stories are amazing. They are crafted in such a way that the reader is drawn into the depths of desire, despair, hope, faith and resilience. I was particularly moved by “Silvana’s Story”. I just could not put it down till I’d finished the story.” — Uduak-Abasi Akpabio, Nigeria.

“I read these stories and they invoked such an array of emotions for me ranging from anger to sadness to joy. To make it short and sweet, you cannot read these stories without feeling something because the writer causes or enables you to almost step into the lives of these women and share their journey…totally emotive and faith stirring!” — Taiwo Adegbite, London.

More on what Sarah has to say concerning her book…
“The solutions to other people’s suffering can often times be culled from the experiences of others. Irrespective of their religious orientation, race or position within the society, it is my greatest wish that many lives will be changed for the better as a result of this book. There’s one truism, and it is that there’s more that unites all humanity than that which divides them.

“In conclusion, the real heroes of our world are often the voiceless of our society. I am honored to be the voice of the women in this book.”

Sarah’s first prose release, BUT HE CALLS ME BLESSED! is available in eBook form, ISBN 9781622870387, through, and wherever eBooks are sold on-line.

Sarah Udoh-Grossfurthner, an Austrian Citizen by marriage, was born in southern Nigeria into a loving and close-knit family. She holds a BA (honors) in Diplomatic Studies and MA in Professional Writing. She is blessed with two children who in her words, “are my joy, my hope, my inspiration and the light that brightens the pathways of my life.” Sarah lives and writes in Vienna.

AAA Supports Investment in Brazilian Social Housing Projects

AAA is lending its support to moves to attract investment in Brazil’s social housing projects.

Boston, MA, August 25, 2012 – Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA) is lending its support to moves to attract investment in Brazil’s social housing projects.

AAA, an advocate of alternative asset classes, such as real estate, sustainable forestry and precious metals, has welcomed calls from analysts at Colordarcy, who are encouraging investors to consider Brazilian social housing projects, such as the Minha Casa Minha Vida housing programme as a possible alternative investment.

“Not only would investing in this type of real estate project generate healthy returns, social investing like this can make a major difference to people’s lives in developing countries,” explained AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.

The managing director of the Colodarcy, Loxley McKenzie, said that those opting to invest in Brazilian social housing can enjoy quick returns. He said: “It is possible to enjoy a high return on investment in a short space of time.”

The project involves the construction of a million homes for Brazil’s poorer population and, as a result, it is one of the largest such residential development projects in the world. Investing at an early stage, especially in a country whose economy remains strong when others are still in recession, can prove a wise move for investors, AAA has claimed.

Brazil is also set to benefit from further growth as it continues its preparations for the FIFA World Cup in 2014 and the Olympics in 2016. There is a major shortage of housing in the cities where people are increasingly moving in order to fill the job vacancies that are emerging as a result of the country’s economic prosperity.

AAA encourages other investment in Brazil, through sustainable forestry projects such as the plantation schemes run by firms like Greenwood Management. These projects are intended to promote sustainable investments and provide alternatives to illegally logged timber and charcoal for use in construction and in the making of steel.

UK Crack-down on Mis-sold Alternatives Supported by AAA

News from the UK that its financial regulator is to clamp down on the mis-selling of alternative investments, has been welcomed by AAA.

Boston, MA, August 25, 2012 – News from the UK that its financial regulator is to clamp down on the mis-selling of alternative investments, has been welcomed by Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

The alternative investment advocacy group claims that the crack-down on the mis-selling of products know as Unauthorised Collective Investment Schemes (UCIS). In the UK can only be a good thing for the alternative market in general.

“We are pleased to see that more is being done to protect those opting for alternative investments,” stated AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.

“The more that can be done to stop unscrupulous businesses from putting the hard sell on investors, the better the reputation of the valid industry players.”

The Financial Services Authority (FSA) in the UK claims that the market for UCIS, which are products that are often worthless if the seller goes into administration, is worth around £2.5 billion. the funds invest is a wide variety of asset classes and when they are mis-sold, the reputation of these asset classes can fall.

Many of these products are not based in the UK and are therefore not included under the Financial Services Compensation Scheme, which reimburses investors should they lose cash because a company or bank collapsing.

A statement from the FSA said it was taking action because “of the high levels of unsuitable advice it has uncovered and the potential for customer detriment.

‘Examples include: pensioners being advised to invest all of their wealth in a single, illiquid UCIS with a view to generating income; and a customer being advised to borrow money to invest in UCIS and to service the debt with withdrawals from that investment.’

AAA advocates ethical and alternative investments, that are valid and sold the right way. Projects such as the managed forestry fund offered by Greenwood Management, for example, offer alternative investments from as little as $10,000.
