According to Kummetz Corporation, poverty plagues both South America and Africa, with many residents feeling as though they have no hope for food, shelter, or basic necessities. Kummetz Corporation, a Nevada-licensed company who invests in projects worldwide, is seeking to change that.

With help from local partners in affected areas, Kummetz Corporation is focusing efforts towards providing for basic needs in South America and Africa. By helping nurture the educational and agricultural systems of these areas, Kummetz Corporation is working to help residents get the basics they need to make a living.

With many countries dealing with shortages in schools and education centers, children are unable to get the basics they need to join the workforce. Part of Kummetz Corporation’s work in these areas will include helping to build schools and other education-oriented facilities, which will help create better educated workers to help build both areas’ infrastructures.

But education is only one of many basic needs Kummetz Corporation will be helping with over the coming months and years. With some citizens of South America and Africa still struggling with an inability to easily access water, Kummetz Corporation joins the fight to help bring water to areas throughout both continents.

In addition to helping with water, Kummetz Corporation will be helping with agriculture in Africa and South America. By supporting agriculture, Kummetz Corporation can not only help provide food to areas of Africa and South America, but eventually export indigenous products to other areas, bringing in revenue to help promote local economic growth.

Unfortunately, many areas in Africa and South America are still without access to good medical care. Kummetz Corporation will work with local businesses and governments to develop hospitals. As with the Company’s other developments in East Africa, Kummetz Corporation will provide inexpensive, quality construction using environmentally friendly products.

By building infrastructure in Africa and South America using more efficient technology and innovative ideas, Kummetz Corporation hopes to strengthen the economies on these continents, bringing economic strength and independence to these areas. Kummetz Corporation also believes by helping to create a strong educational system in these countries, a well-educated labor base will be available to help carry these countries into the future.

Opening Marks 15th Store for Las Vegas-Based Franchise

Pahrump, Nevada – January 6, 2012 – Las Vegas-based tire care chain Tire Works Total Car Care recently opened its fifteenth location, bringing its top-quality service and customer care to the Pahrump area. Tire Works Total Car Care is settling into the property that was formerly Grease Monkey at 660 S. Highway 160.

The grand opening follows an eight-year process to sell the property, which went through two bank failures before Tire Works Total Car Care bought it. Tire Works Total Car Care has expanded Grease Monkey’s facilities, providing eight service bays and increasing the size of the front building. The permit and licensing process, according to co-owner Roshie Weightman, was far simpler than it has been in other locations.

“People were so nice and helpful,” Roshie Weightman says.

In addition to providing more than 3,000 brands and sizes of tires from Bridgestone to Toyo to Pirelli and beyond, Tire Works Total Car Care offers automotive care as well. Tire Works Total Car Care puts an emphasis on providing quality service to its customers, hiring highly qualified technicians to ensure customers have minimal wait time.

In fact, with this new location, Tire Works Total Car Care hired only local workers. “We want to hire our employees locally,” Roshie Weightman explains. “We support the community. Our contractors were local. Even our celebration cake was ordered locally.”

Tire Works Total Car Care’ support of the community extends beyond providing great service and employment. Tire Works Total Car Care believes in giving a portion of profits back to the community by supporting such organizations as the Salvation Army. Other organizations Tire Works Total Car Care has supported include Toys for Tots, Coats for Kids, the Nevada Rape Crisis Center, and the Christmas Angel.

In fact, this past Christmas, Tire Works Total Car Care co-sponsored Pahrump’s Christmas Angel program. Through this program, which gives toys to underprivileged children in the community, the Salvation Army was able to provide toys for 400 children in Pahrump.

The first Tire Works Total Car Care location opened in Las Vegas in 2004. Since that time, the company has expanded to its current fifteen locations, using technology to maintain an elaborate inventory that includes thousands of tires and other parts. Tire Works Total Car Care has been expanding its communications network to allow better communication both between stores and with customers.

The company seeks to provide top notch customer service, sending secret shoppers into locations to ensure service is great on all counts. Tire Works Total Car Care also regularly shops the competition to make sure its prices are the best in town. Even after buying tires or having service performed, Pahrump residents can expect the good customer service to continue, as Tire Works Total Car Care routinely follows up with customers to ensure 100 percent satisfaction.

Tire Works Total Car Care doubles the guarantees of competitors, providing lifetime warranties on parts and offering a 30-day guarantee on its tires. If, for any reason, customers aren’t happy with their new tires, they can come back and exchange them for another set. And if a customer takes advantage of Tire Works Total Car Care’ free rotation and balance offer on tires purchased there, that work will be warranted as well. In fact, Tire Works Total Car Care offers rotation and balance as part of its warranty, providing a checkup every 4,000 miles. If a customer misses the 4,000-mile cutoff, Tire Works Total Car Care promises to honor the checkup regardless.

And if you sell your car? Tire Works Total Car Care’ warranties are transferrable, allowing car owners to give the car’s new buyer the peace of mind of knowing his or her tires are covered by the best in Pahrump.

No matter where you’ve been buying your tires in the area, Tire Works Total Car Care guarantees the lowest prices. If you buy your tires and find a lower advertised price anywhere in Pahrump, Tire Works Total Car Care pledges to credit back the difference.

With a commitment to quality and community that exceeds expectations, Tire Works Total Car Care is a welcome addition to the town of Pahrump. “We aspire to create a Tire Works Total Car Care experience that surpasses all expectations,” co-owner Jeff Weightman says. “At Tire Works Total Car Care, we’re prepared to do whatever it takes to make that a reality.”

Personal Finance Expert Joe Aldeguer Says Foreclosure and Bankruptcy Not a Lifelong Situation

Joe Aldeguer

Joe Aldeguer

According to Joe Aldeguer, it’s no secret that the housing market collapse in 2008 has affected hundreds of thousands of homeowners across the United States. Many homeowners are facing foreclosure and feel as though their lives are in a perpetual state of limbo. It can be very intimidating to face foreclosure, as homeowners know that their credit scores are negatively affected and credit availability may become a thing of the past, reports Joe Aldeguer.

While many homeowners will have limited housing options after foreclosure, Joe Aldeguer notes that there is hope for all, if you have a plan. He maintains that it is possible to reestablish credit to the point of being able to buy a new house, save money, and pay off other debt–all while living in the current home. According to Joe Aldeguer, he has seen many homeowners in the foreclosure process take up to four years or longer – roughly the same amount of time it takes to begin the credit rebuilding process under certain circumstances. You should call an attorney for advice. Joe Aldeguer notes that each case is different.

According to Joe Aldeguer, a chapter 7 bankruptcy filing is a viable option for some homeowners facing foreclosure. By ensuring a formal change of title, many homeowners can simply walk away knowing that they may qualify for an FHA loan in as little as three years. To qualify for an FHA loan, an individual has to meet the financial requirements of job history and reestablished credit requirements, says Aldeguer. During this time, adds Joe Aldeguer, the homeowner can choose to stop paying the monthly mortgage, as well as the property tax bill. Joe Aldeguer says that this is the perfect time to open up a savings account, pay down other debt, or get into a financial position to put a down payment on a new home. Often, the bank will press the homeowner to vacate the home immediately. At this point, Joe Aldeguer recommends consulting with an experienced bankruptcy and foreclosure attorney for advice as they can possibly prolong your stay and length of time in the home.

By having a plan in place, and strategically allowing the property to go into foreclosure while filing bankruptcy proceedings, a family can take the time to wipe their financial slate clean and actually start saving money, points out Joe Aldeguer. There is a huge relief for families and home-owners that there are options that they never would have thought of. There is no shame in admitting that once a home has been devalued to a certain point, it becomes an absolute financial liability and not the asset it once was, notes Joe Aldeguer. Unfortunately, many people fear a marred credit report so much they would let their families suffer. It doesn’t have to be that way. Joe Aldeguer insists that weathering a personal financial storm over the course of a few years is far more sensible than fighting for a home that may have lost as much as half its original value.

Between Joe Aldeguer’s strong financial background and his ownership of one of the largest lending mortgage companies, Aldeguer and the attorneys he works with have developed a practical strategy that makes financial sense in making the transition of making lemonade out of lemons.

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD: Why Impotence Shortens the Penis

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD

Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD

Genetics are a significant determining factor of penis size, but there are instances when a man’s penis grows shorter during his life. Radiation treatments for cancer, for instance, as well as Peyronie’s Disease can both negatively impact penile size. But research has also shown that impotence has a direct correlation with a decrease in penis size, and Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, a Miami urologist, explains why.

Founder of Perito Urology, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD has performed thousands of surgeries to treat erectile dysfunction. This research shows the importance of treating erectile dysfunction, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says. Over time impotence can have a negative effect on a man’s penis, with a loss of elasticity being partly to blame, explains Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD.

According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, an erection stretches the tunica albuginea—the fibrous tissue that covers erectile bodies of the penis. When a man goes too long without an erection, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, that fibrous tissue is believed to lose elasticity.  The tunica albuginea has a direct correlation to achieving erection and to penis size and shape.

A metanalysis of several papers on the topic reveal that any man suffering from impotence could lose .5 to 5 cm’s every year and a half they manifest the disease.  Dr. Perito explains that nocturnal erections, erections occurring 6 to 10 times a night act to exercise the penis and keep it healthy.  The old saying “If you do not use it, you will lose it”, certainly applies here.  For men suffering from erectile dysfunction, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD and others in his field are able to surgically implant an inflatable device that will restore patients to normal function in a matter of weeks. An added benefit to this surgery, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD explains, is that patients will stretch the tunica albuginea and result in retention of penis size.

Lifestyle factors like smoking often play a role in both erectile dysfunction and penis size, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD says. According to Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD, experts believe smoking can damage the blood vessels of the penis, just as it damages other blood vessels. But for Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD and his staff, it is of greater concern that smoking has been directly connected to erectile dysfunction. As Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD points out, men who smoke more than a pack of cigarettes per day are 50% more likely to suffer erectile dysfunction than non-smoking men. As always, patients should live a healthy lifestyle and refrain from behavior that might be detrimental to health, Dr. Paul Edward Perito MD concludes.
