Six months after Solavei announced it was going to launch into a new phase of its development, the company said it filed a bankruptcy reorganization plan to merge with ASPIDER, a Netherlands-based Infrastructure as a Service provider that works with mobile operators.
Terms of the deal remain confidential.
Social commerce network and mobile service provider Solavei filed its plan of reorganization today and announced it will merge with industry leader ASPIDER, a Netherlands-based company that has provided core mobile infrastructure and services to over 100 mobile service providers and millions of subscribers throughout the world. Terms of the deal remain confidential.
With over 400,000 people that have become members in the past two years, Solavei will continue to deliver and grow its social commerce network to fulfill its vision of positively impacting millions of people’s lives. With this transaction, the company will continue to operate normally, no services will be interrupted, compensation will be paid on time, and Ryan Wuerch will continue in his role as Chairman & CEO.
Solavei members and employees will benefit from the ASPIDER global mobile virtual enabling platform that provides advanced capabilities, including “in-network” international calling, global roaming, mobile payments, and much more. The merger will also drive cost improvements for Solavei as the company consolidates its overall technology platform, leverages greater buying power of primary mobile service and eliminates third-party solutions.
“This partnership offers tremendous value to both companies,” said Wuerch.
“For Solavei, it will provide the opportunity to leverage ASPIDER direct connections with global mobile operators, and technology resources to enhance and expand mobile services for our members, and broaden Solavei’s reach to enable us to rapidly expand the Solavei brand around the world.”
ASPIDER is expected to leverage Solavei’s social commerce platform within its own range of mobile solutions. This Solavei-enhanced platform will create a fully managed mobile-service ecosystem that includes network wholesale, retail infrastructure and social engagement.
“We are thrilled to expand our services to include Solavei’s unique social and referral platforms,” said Patrick Meijer, VP Corporate Development at ASPIDER. “What’s so different about Solavei is it has created an entirely new form of distribution for the market of mobile service, capitalizing on the fast-growing trends of social media, mobile and referral marketing.”
The merger with ASPIDER will complete Solavei’s financial restructuring announced in June 2014. As a result, Solavei expects to grow exponentially as it starts 2015 with a bold, exciting vision for the future.
“This is truly a wonderful opportunity for all of us—members and employees alike,” said Wuerch. “Solavei is going to get even better, and we can all look forward to the many opportunities and benefits this partnership will bring. This is such an amazing day! We are Going Strong in 2015!”

Honey is a sweet liquid produced by honey bees using nectar from flowers through a process of regurgitation and evaporation.
This MNT Knowledge Center feature is part of acollection of articles on the health benefits of popular foods. It includes a brief history of honey in traditional medicine and explains some of its potential health benefits.
The possible health benefits of consuming honey have been documented in early Greek, Roman, Vedic, and Islamic texts and the healing qualities of honey were referred to by philosophers and scientists all the way back to ancient times, such as Aristotle (384 - 322 BC) and Aristoxenus (320 BC).
Honey has high levels of monosaccharides, fructose and glucose, containing about 70 to 80 percent sugar, which gives it its sweet taste - minerals and water make up the rest of its composition.
Honey also possesses antiseptic and antibacterial properties. In modern science, we have managed to find useful applications of honey in chronic wound management.
However, it should be noted that many of honey's health claims still require further rigorous scientific studies to confirm them.

History of honey

Honey has been consumed for thousands of years for its supposed health benefits.
Over four thousand years ago, honey was used as a traditional ayurvedic medicine, where it was thought to be effective at treating material imbalances in the body.
In pre-Ancient Egyptian times, honey was used topically to treat wounds.1.
Egyptian medicinal compounds more than five millennia ago used honey.
The ancient Greeks believed that the consuming honey could help make you live longer.
Even the Prophet Mohammed glorified the healing powers of honey.
The Quran also praises honey's healing ability:
"And thy Lord taught the Bee to build its cells in hills, on trees, and in (men's) habitations; Then to eat of all the produce (of the earth), and find with skill the spacious paths of its Lord: there issues from within their bodies a drink of varying colors, wherein is healing for men: verily in this is a Sign for those who give thought."
The beneficial properties of honey have been explored in modern times, and there is evidence to suggest that these historical claims may hold some truth.

Properties of honey

Honey is made up of glucose, fructose, and minerals such as iron, calcium, phosphate, sodium chlorine, potassium, magnesium.
Below is a typical honey profile, according to BeeSource:2
  • Fructose: 38.2%
  • Glucose: 31.3%
  • Maltose: 7.1%
  • Sucrose: 1.3%
  • Water: 17.2%
  • Higher sugars: 1.5%
  • Ash: 0.2%
  • Other/undetermined: 3.2%
The slightly acidic pH level of honey (between 3.2 and 4.5) is what helps prevent the growth of bacteria, while its antioxidant constituents cleans up free radicals. The physical properties of honey vary depending on the specific flora that was used to produce it, as well as its water content.

Health benefits of honey

Modern science is finding that many of the historical claims that honey can be used in medicine may indeed be true. In the Bible (Old Testament), King Solomon said, "My son, eat thou honey, for it is good", and there are a number of reasons why it may be good.
There have been some cases in which people have reported positive effects of honey in treating wounds.

Acid reflux

Professor Mahantayya V Math, from MGM Medical College, Kamothe, Navi Mumbai, India, explained in the BMJ (British Medical Journal) that, as it is 125.9 more viscous than distilled water at 37 celsius (body temperature),honey may be helpful in preventing GERD (Gastroesophageal reflux).3

Infantile gastroenteritis

E. Haffejee and A. Moosa reported in the BMJ on a clinical study in which they used honey in oral rehydration solution in children and infants with gastroenteritis. Their aim was twofold:
  • Determine whether honey might affect the duration of acute diarrhea
  • Evaluate honey as a glucose substitute in oral rehydration
They found that honey shortens the duration of bacterial diarrhea in infants and young children.4 They added that honey does not prolong non-bacterial diarrhea duration, and "may safely be used as a substitute for glucose in oral rehydration solution containing electrolytes."

Healing wounds and burns

There have been some cases in which people have reported positive effects of honey in treating wounds. Hurlburt, a borderline diabetic, with recurring cellulitis and staph infections tried taking antibiotics for months. However, they failed to alleviate the symptoms. Hulburt's physician, Jennifer Eddy of UW Health's Eau Claire Family Medicine Clinic, suggested that she should try topically applying honey. Soon after applying the honey, she began to feel better.
Hulburt said that she remembered thinking "holy mackerel-what a difference. It's a lot better than having to put oral antibiotics into your system."
A review published in The Cochrane Library indicated that honey may be able to help heal burns, the lead author of the study said that "topical honey is cheaper than other interventions, notably oral antibiotics, which are often used and may have other deleterious side effects."
However, it should be stressed that there is a lack of evidence to fully support this claim. In fact, a study published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases concluded that applying medical grade honey to wounds of patients has no advantage over normal antibiotic among patients undergoing dialysis.

Honey for treating allergies

There is some research to suggest that honey may be useful in minimizing seasonal allergies. The Guardian reported that honey even 'beats cough medicine' at alleviating and reducing the frequency of cough.
One placebo-controlled study which included 36 people with ocular allergies, found that participants responded better to treatment with honey compared to placebo. However, a third of them reported that eating a tablespoon of honey every day was hard to tolerate due to its overly sweet taste.

Fighting infections

In 2010, scientists from the Academic Medical Center at the University of Amsterdam reported in FASEB Journal that honey's ability to kill bacteria lies in a protein called defensin-15
A study published in the journal Microbiology revealed that Manuka honey is effective at treating chronic wound infections and may even prevent them from developing in the first place.
Dr. Rowena Jenkins and colleagues, from the University of Wales Institute, reported thatManuka honey kills bacteria by destroying key bacterial proteins.
Some studies have revealed that a certain type of honey, called "Manuka honey," may even be effective for the treatment of MRSA infections.
Dr Jenkins concluded:
"Manuka and other honeys have been known to have wound healing and anti-bacterial properties for some time. But the way in which they act is still not known. If we can discover exactly how Manuka honey inhibits MRSA it could be used more frequently as a first-line treatment for infections with bacteria that are resistant to many currently available antibiotics."
Manuka honey may even help reverse bacterial resistance to antibiotics, according to research presented at the Society for General Microbiology's Spring Conference in Harrogate, UK.
A study published in the journal Pediatrics, which compared honey to placebo in helping children with cough during night time, found that honey was superior. The researchers concluded "Parents rated the honey products higher than the silan date extract for symptomatic relief of their children's nocturnal cough and sleep difficulty due to URI (upper respiratory infection). Honey may be a preferable treatment for cough and sleep difficulty associated with childhood URI."6
Natural honey better at killing bacteria than artificial honey - Kendall Powell wrote in the journal Nature that "natural honey kills bacteria three times more effectively" than an artificial honey solution of the same thickness and sugar concentration.7

Honey's other possible uses in medicine

New research is always finding new possible uses of honey in treating certain conditions and diseases.
Recent developments on honey from MNT news
A trial published in The Lancet Infectious Diseases shows that applying medical grade honey to wounds of patients undergoing dialysis does not have an advantage over normal antibiotic use.
Forthcoming research in the journal Environmental Toxicology and Chemistry analyzes the physiological effects of three separate pesticides on honey bees (Apis mellifera).

Here's The Secret Software I Used To Build My Online Empire... (And It's Free!)

Ok, as promised I’m going to reveal the secret weapon I use on a daily basis to achieve incredible results in business.
It’s a piece of software that has built my entire little empire brick-by-brick, day-by-day…
It’s not DreamWeaver, Outlook, Front Page, 1ShoppingCart, or an auto-responder.                                                                                                                                                                                         
 No… I’m afraid to say that it’s just as lame, and yet just as important as the secret I revealed yesterday.
When I look out across this industry, I see two kinds of people…
Those who have made “execution” a daily habit, and those who have not.
Here's what I mean by that...
Many close friends and associates have noticed that I’ve acquired one particular trait over the years which has enabled me to achieve some incredible things.
It’s not that I’m smarter than anyone else, or that I’ve had better opportunities, or that I’ve had more money to start with, (which was definitively not the case).
They all say it comes down to one thing… “Mike, what makes you different than everyone else out there is that once you have an idea, you actually sit down and do it.”
To be honest, that never really occurred to me, and it made me stop and really think.
I just took it for granted that if you have a great idea, you freaking do it right?
But most people don’t. They have an incredible idea and think about doing it. Day’s go by. Weeks go by. Months go by. Before they realize it, they’re still sitting in the same position they were a year before.
I don’t think about things, I do them.
I have an idea, and I execute that idea one little step at a time, each and every day until the project is complete.
Success is not a destination, it’s the result of a pattern of habitual behaviors.
That’s why you can take someone who’s had a track record in one field, and move them to another with the expectation that success will be achieved again.
It’s not the job, the business opportunity, the new marketing system, or the product that resulted in their success… It was their daily habits. They were “do-ers.”
There are successful people and unsuccessful people in every company – all using the same tools, the same websites, and the same system.
The difference is found in their daily habits.
So how can you transition from a “thinker,” to a “do-er?”
Well that’s where my little secret software weapon comes into play. This little gem has been crucial in creating my habitual pattern of getting things done, producing millions in revenue in the process.
It’s called “WordPad.”
Also known as NotePad or TextEdit for Mac users, it’s that little program that opens up to a blank white page and just stares at you with a blinking cursor at the top.
You write text in it. That’s all. It doesn’t do anything what-so-ever, or even check your spelling.
Yes I know… Another big let down just like yesterday right?
Well here’s why this program is so valuable to you… It’s your new boss.
Every night before I go to bed, I pull up my Word Pad file which I save as “To-Do.txt,” and I write down five tasks that I must complete the following day in order of importance.
For example, here’s my actual “To Do List” for today:
To Do List:
1: Write and send MS newsletter.
2: Update Adwords campaign.
3: Run new headline split-test.
4: Finish Chapter 4 in “Building On A Budget.”
5: Return prospect phone calls and emails.
6: Read a book.
Now here’s what’s so magical about this process…
If you make your list the night before, you’ll subconscious will have all night to think about it.
The moment you wake up, you’re on task. You already know what your goals for the day are. You’re focused, and by starting your day with this focus and this purpose that’s already laid out for you, it allows you to ignore the onslaught of distractions that come with each new morning.
You’ll find that if you don’t have your To-Do List waiting for you in the morning, that you’ll get side-tracked immediately. Life happens. It gets in the way.
And unless you take back that control and focus, it will prevent you from accomplishing anything. This is the deadly trap you must avoid at all costs that's preventing you from achieving the results you want.
Above all other things, this little process of creating my To-Do List each night using nothing more than Word Pad, has allowed me to create the Magnetic Sponsoring empire.
The most sophisticated and effective marketing system in the industry was created one step at a time by my little Word Pad file.
And here’s my challenge to you…
Make a commitment to use my method for 30 days, starting tonight. Before you go to bed, make your list of 5 tasks that you MUST complete by the end of the next day.
They must be actions “tasks,” not goals.
If you do the tasks, your goals will be accomplished automatically.
Don’t put…
1: Sponsor a new rep
2: Get a new customer
3: Read a book
4: Etc…
If sponsoring a new rep or getting a new customer is the goal, focus on the tasks that will result in that goal like producing 20 new leads, and contacting previous prospects.
1: Send out a press release.
2: Send a newsletter to my list.
3: Write and article and submit to 5 article sites
4: Talk to at least 5 prospects.
5: Read Chapter 3 in "Review 3 Modules in Traffic Formula II”
If you do this without fail for 30 days, you’ll be a completely different person, and you’ll have made more progress in one month, than you have in the past 12.
This is EXACTLY how you execute traffic building methods revealed in courses like Magnetic Sponsoring, for maximum results.
Thank you for your leadership,
Mike Dillard
