What the Yuck: Man, he smells good...

What the Yuck: Man, he smells good...

Too embarrassed to ask your doctor about sex, body quirks, or the latest celeb health fad? In a regular feature and a new book, "What the Yuck?!," Health magazine medical editor Dr. Roshini Raj tackles your most personal and provocative questions. Send 'em to Dr. Raj at whattheyuck@health.com.

Q: Is it true if a guy smells good to you that means you're biologically compatible?

Like most things involving men and women, it's complicated!

There have been several studies that showed that people are attracted to the smell of members of the opposite sex who are somewhat genetically dissimilar in terms of their immune-system genes, and are turned off by the odor of those with very similar immune-system genes.

Being genetically unlike in this way has a biological advantage for the kids because theoretically they'll have both sets of genes and therefore a more diverse immune system.

But this theory has yet to be proven, and there are so many other factors that go into compatibility, I wouldn't put too much stock in this as a way to find your perfect match.

    Как известно, прямые инвестиции — наиболее гибкий вид финансирования развития бизнеса, доступный тогда, когда остальные источники не могут быть использованы. Сотрудничество фонда с компаниями может строиться различным путем: фонды могут выступать как отстраненными финансовыми инвесторами, так и участниками бизнеса, активно вмешиваясь в операционную деятельность. Private equity фонды, как правило, выходят из проектов в течение лет, получая в этот период доходность на уровне % годовых. По оценке экспертов, прямые инвестиции — сравнительно дорогой вид инвестиций, которые накладывают дополнительные обязательства на компанию. Например, фонды снижают риски, подписывая соглашения, противостоящие размыванию капитала, получают право на информацию, право первого выхода из проекта, вето на крупные транзакции.

    Закрытые паевые Инвестиционные фонды

    Вложение средств в недвижимость в любые времена позволяет сохранить финансовые средства. Особенно выгодным является вложение в недвижимость посредством закрытых паевых инвестиционных фондов.

    В последнее время их популярность растет как среди частных инвесторов, так и среди корпоративных инвесторов, например, девелоперских и строительных компаний. Для строительных компаний этот финансовый инструмент интересен тем, что дает возможность получать инвестиции от частных лиц. Наиболее успешными являются вложения в недвижимость на этапе строительства.

    Инвестируя через закрытый паевой фонд, вместо целой квартиры вы как инвестор получаете по небольшой части от нескольких квартир. Размер инвестиций в этом случае не так велик как при приобретении целой квартиры. Самый дешевый пай начинается от 100 000 рублей. Есть один ключевой момент при таком способе вложений. Управлять средствами и выбирать объекты инвестиций будет управляющая компания. Поэтому для того, чтобы не прогадать при вложении средств, нужно особенно тщательно выбирать управляющую компанию.
