During my recent trip to Costa Rica I got to go super zen and view nature from an un-American viewpoint. One thing you have to see when you are in Costa rica is the many packs of monkeys that inhabit the region. Swinging to and fro, throwing poo at each other, and occasionally getting in to your car and stealing whatever they can get their hands on is a common occurrence. Did you ever think about how they are able to swing all over the damn place all day and not get tired? Of course it is easy to say, “Well, they are monkeys.” but they don’t just pop out of their mom and start gathering bananas. (Can’t officially verify that.)
After oooooing, awwwwing, and then chasing those damn monkeys for stealing my Alanis Morissette cd’s, I finally decided in order to have a chance at getting even, I must “train like a monkey”. So here is an excellent exercise to get a full ab workout and all you have to do is “hang out”.
Hanging Knee Raises
This is an extremely tough exercise that lets you work out your lower abs and your serratus muscles.
1. Grab a pull up bar, palms out, with your arms should width apart
2. Slowly lift your knees towards your chest making sure you are squeezing your abs the whole time – keep your feet off the ground for the whole exercise.
3. Rinse and repeat to exhaustion
That’s it. A ridiculous ab workout. If you really want to target those serratus muscles, alternate lifting your legs to each side.
NOTE: It is almost a given that your wrists will give out before you abs will. In that case hang some straps from the pull
Everybody knows why we need food supplements. The inclusion of supplements into diet is being done by animal researchers in the same way nutritional additives have been used for humans.

There has been quite the surge in new construction hitting the Northeast Los Angeles real estate market lately, particularly in Glassell Park. continues to be popular with home seekers who love the area and the views but are priced out of the costlier market.
Glassell Park, which is boxed between Glendale, Eagle Rock, Atwater Village and Elysian Valley has seen a resurgence of interest after Eagle Rock began to gentrify seven or eight years ago. Because it is a hilly neighborhood, many homes in the area have spectacular views. .
First we saw a development of four homes by 4site Real Estate, designed by Holz Architecture, located in the hills of Glassell Park at 4239-4243 Scandia Way.

The animal health market is growing, albeit at a slower rate, in the recessionary economic phase. Two factors are working in favor of the industry – pet owners’ love for their companion animals and the economic reasons for the treatment of livestock or farm animals.
The -livestock- segment, a high-volume market that represents around 57% of the international animal health market is guided mostly by economic concerns as the market has to meet the growing demand in protein requirements in developing countries. Increase in demand for protein inevitably leads to increase in demand for food-producing animals.
Emerging markets such as Eastern Europe, Latin America and Asia are witnessing an increase in share of the total pie of the animal health industry because of the increasing importance given to animal health by the livestock breeders. As these regions are showing very strong economic growth in the past few years, livestock breeders are giving due importance to the better management of livestock to cater to the growing nutritional needs of populations. But with various kinds of diseases reducing global animal production, animal healthcare is gaining significant importance. Emerging economies thus offer significant potential for animal health industry in the near future
The mature markets of North America and Western Europe, however, are supporting the growth of animal health market as these regions are characterized by strong growth, particularly in the -companion animals- sector.
The animal health market is highly concentrated, with the top nine players controlling more than 80% of the total market. Recent acquisitions of Fort Dodge (Wyeth) by Pfizer and Intervet by Schering-Plough have further consolidated the market.
The report titled -Global Animal Health Market: Emerging Markets Driving Growth- analyzes the two segments of animal health industry – companion animals and livestock or farm animals.
