Trabuco is an ancient barricade weapon that was used to destroy masonry walls or heave projectiles above them to the other side as a catapult does. It can also be called the trebuchet, for differentiation from other weapons. It is referred to as the thick gauge rifle or revolver in Brazil. This weapon was used in areas of all religions including the Muslims and Christians. It could accurately throw a projectile of 140 pounds at high speeds into an enemy’s barricade to a distance of up to 800 meters away. It was brought to Europe in 600 DC after its invention in China at around 400 AC.
The trabuco was an evolvement of the old sling. The lowest Trabuco type is extra portable with an extent that is lesser hence it allows for easy transportation. Its release time intervals also short allowing for more throws and can be operated by one person who is responsible for both feeding and pulling the string. However, most trebuchets are large hence needed between 15-45 men to operate it with two men handling the rope. The operators were local citizens who were working in defense of their city or attacking enemies.

Through the Persians and Byzantine Empire, Trabuco reached the Middle East, and through Germany’s north, it reached Nordic countries. Later its traction and knowledge got to Scandinavian at an unknown time in history according to infopedia.pt. Early when Paris was under major attack, the machines were used and the Vikings met. In the early 800, the machines were also used by the Nordic People to siege Anger. For the first time, Trebuchets counterweight was used in Italy at the end of the 12th century. In England, they were introduced in 1216.
In 1191 during Acre attack, Richard Lionheart amassed two trebuchets that he named “Bad Neighbor” and God’s Catapult” to fight with in 1304 according to sinonimos.com.br. During the Castle attack of Stirling, Edward Longshanks had his engineers built a trebuchet that would be gigantic to defeat the English Army and gave it the name “wolf war.”
The trabuco lost its value when gunpowder emerged. It was no longer the best choice for a field gun. Even after gunpowder, they were used in the Burgos attack (1475-1476) and Rhodes attack (1480). In 1521, Hernán Cortés recorded its last military use in the Aztec Capital attack in Tenochtitlan. Today, Trabucos are used for entertainment and to educate on mechanics basic principles.

Dr.Saad Saad is a professional in the pediatric surgeon. He was born in a family of eight children in Palestine but grew up in Kuwait. He got his degree in Medicine from Medicine School of Cairo University, Egypt. He is a surgeon available in New Jersey, Eatontown and was associated with numerous hospitals within that area, which include the Medical Center of the University of Jersey Shore and that of Monmouth in the Long Branch Campus specializing in surgery at both centers.
Dr. Saad Saad has been practicing surgeon for over 20 years. He has during the years performed so many pediatric surgeries on patients within and outside his community. In his United States community and that of Holy land, he helped children ranging from youngsters to infants. He has also been part of several missions including four US medical missions and eight Jerusalem Medical Missions. He went to West Bank to help the poor children through performing complex operations on them. He had been disturbed by the existing procedures and methods as a physician forcing him to challenge the current state of treatment conditions to find ways of reducing the risk and pain that his patients went through. He has then come up with two inventions patented under him and has developed new and improved procedures of pediatric surgeries.
One of his inventions is that of a catheter that has in it an integral electromagnetic device that helps identify its location in a patient’s body. The normal medical catheters are inserted into a patient’s body as a tube that is used to treat conditions that are medical or perform a procedure of surgery. They can be used to drain fluids and gases or even create a path to instruments of surgery into the body. To trace them inside a patient’s body, a physician has to perform an X-ray or an MRI scan on the patient. This processes especially the MRI involves big machines that are not the most efficient in terms of portability. His catheter is developed such that to trace it in the patient’s body only an external device for locating it is used to scan. It is run over the patient’s body to signal the doctor on the position of the catheter once its tip is below the locator perpendicularly. The signal is sent through a voltage that illuminates its light. Learn more: https://www.doximity.com/pub/saad-saad-md
His other invention was that of providing an endoscope with it irrigation and suction properties during a procedure without losing contact with the targeted area. This would reduce the time and activities involved when a doctor has to remove the endoscope and insert a suction pump in the middle of a procedure.

David Giertz is a FINRA registered broker in the financial industry. He started out his career at Financial Horizons Security Corp. in 1989. He began as a financial services provider and quickly rose through the ranks. After just four years he joined Citicorp Investment Services as an executive. He continued to work in high-level positions at Nationwide Investment Services Corporation for several years. At one time he was the senior v.p. of their Financial Distribution and Sales department.
In a February 2018 article, David Giertz outlined how the new tax laws affect people when it comes to saving for retirement. He said that there five main things that investors need to be aware of going forward. The first is that the health savings account contribution limits are changing. Most people aren’t aware, he says, that an HSA can be used as a retirement account. In fact, they are triple-tax advantaged and can be superior to an IRA or 401(k) in a number of ways.
As he explains it, an HSA isn’t taxed for either capital gains or dividends, money in them can be used tax-free for medical expenses, and after age 65 they can be used on anything tax-free. He says the contribution limit is going up to $3450 for individuals and $6900 for families.
David Giertz also says that the limit on 401(k)’s is going up to $18,500 in 2018 and people over age 50 can contribute $24,500. His third point is that IRA deduction limits are changing depending on income. As income increase the tax deduction limit decreases. He says this starts at $63,000 for single taxpayers and the heads of households. Married couples start to phase out at $101,000.
Also, Roth IRA limits are changing. He says that single people and heads of households cannot contribute to a Roth IRA for those earning $120,000 to $135,000 a year. Finally, David Giertz says that the limits on the Saver’s tax credit are also changing. In order to get this federal tax credit people need to earn less than $63,000 for married couples, $31,000 for single taxpayers, and a head of household needs to earn less than $47,250.

Matt Badaili discovered investments that are now called “Freedom Checks”. Mr. Badaili is a geologist that has traveled the world reviewing natural resources and investment opportunities. For four decades leading government authorities have worked toward making America self-sufficient. The oil, gas, and mining resources are essential in reaching this goal. Otherwise, we will continue to spend billions of dollars for these resources from United States hostile countries, which makes the United States presently interdependence (not self-sufficient) upon nations that are anti-America. Read this article at metropolismag.com.
In 1987 Congress enacted the “Statute 26-F” that allowed companies to become Freedom Check distributors. These companies must meet two primary requirements to qualify. Presently, only 568 companies have met the criteria to become the MLPs that issue Freedom Checks. First, let’s be clear, these checks are not government checks. They are distributions earned from investments in MLP’s (Master Limited Partnerships). They are not related to Social Security or Medicare; any age group can receive these Freedom Checks. At present these 568 companies are expected to pay out $34.6 billion this year in distributions to their unitholders.
Let’s clarify some terms such as units and distributions. The words are used to help remind people these 568 companies are not corporations, but rather partnership entities. Master Limited Partnerships (MLP) are publicly traded partnerships that work as pass-through businesses. They combine the tax benefits of limited partnerships with the liquidity of publicly traded securities. Lately, many of these partnerships have focused on energy-oriented investments. MLP’s are not new investment vehicles or strategy. Since they are partnerships rather than corporations, the stockholders of corporations are unit holders in the MLPs. The dividends in corporations are distributions in publicly traded partnerships. The units are traded publicly just like stocks in the markets. Individuals buy units and received distributions in the form of Freedom Checks (cash), or reinvested in buying more units, with the hopes that the payments and values will rise over time. The MLPs have the same goals as owning shares in a corporation.

The MLPs profits have quarterly payments. These income-focused investments typically carry high distribution yield. The rules for returns are different than for stocks when it comes to filing income taxes. The yields are not taxable, and when one chooses to sell the units, the gains are also treated differently from corporations in regards to income taxes. Who would not want such investments?

In 2016, an article was added to the French Code of Public health. The article states that advertisements which include photoshopped images of models must be captioned “Retouched Photograph” so that viewers are not misled to believe that such bodies can naturally be obtained. This regulation came as a response to the report that 30 or 40 thousand people in France currently suffer from Anorexia, a body-image related mental illness. As of October 1st, 2017, the regulation is being enforced.
This is not the only French effort aiming to reduce body-image issues. Since 2016, models have been required to submit medical documents to ensure that their general health and body mass index are below a certain level. Similar laws have been made in Israel in 2012 and in Australia in 2014. In Brazil, attention was brought to the subject in 2010 but no regulations have since been passed.
