The dog’s ear is an amazing and unique part of their anatomy. It is crucial to the way they function, and provides a level of hearing several times more powerful than man’s. In this brief article, we’ll go through some of the physiology of dog ears, as well as their basic construction. The dog’s outer ear is made up of the earflap, which is also termed a pinna, and can stand upright (sometimes called a prick ear) or have a floppy appearance. The earflap acts as a funnel to direct sound through the ear canal, and can be rotated in several angles, and perked up or let down in some dogs to heighten or dampen the sense of hearing.

Dog ears are extremely sensitive, largely because they are constructed so differently than the ears of humans. It is proposed that dogs hear more than six times more accurately than humans. They are made from three parts, consisting of the outer ear, the middle ear, and the inner ear. The outer ear is made up of the ear flap, which is often called a pinna, and can be floppy or pricked up. This acts as a funnel to direct sound into the ear canal, which, unlike in humans, is thin and narrow.

The outer and middle ear are separated by a thin membrane called the eardrum. This membrane is extremely fragile, and can be damaged by infections or during ear cleaning. This middle ear is made up of three bones, the bulla (a cavity filled with air), and a thin tube that goes to the back of the mouth. The inner ear, which is connected directly to the brain, controls balance and hearing. Dog ears are notorious for their infections and problems, especially dogs with large, floppy ears or that spend a lot of time in water. Dogs that have lots of hair in and around the ears are also prone to ear infections.

If the ear gets itchy for whatever reason (some dogs develop skin conditions that lead to constant scratching), scratching it may result in loss of hair on the earflap or even at the ear’s base. Overly severe scratching may even lead to tears at the ear’s edges. Damage to the dog ears can cause bleeding between the skin and the cartilage of the earflap, which is called a hematoma (much like a severe bruise). The earflap gets swollen and hot and painful, but can be treated much like any bruise.

The Immigrant Investor Pilot Program is a way for foreigners seeking permanent U.S. residence to obtain EB-5 visa green cards by way of investment into an approved EB-5 Regional Center. The qualified investor, the investor’s spouse and their unmarried children under the age of 21 are eligible for a green card if the Regional Center creates at least 10 full-time jobs for U.S. workers. Businesses looking to become approved Regional Centers must undergo a specific process before becoming eligible and are able to participate in the program.

A Regional Center is defined as “any economic unit, public or private, which is involved with the promotion of economic growth”. The Regional Center applicant must submit a proposal to the United States Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) that clearly describes the geographic scope, business goals, funding structure, promotional plan, projected indirect job creation, and overall economic impact of the planned Regional Center.

The content of the proposal is usually grouped into four main sections: 1) Overall Business Plan; 2) Operational Plan 3) Economic Impact Analysis Report; and 4) Sample Agreements.

The Overall Business Plan consists of the business aspects of the Center, such as the geographic focus, target industries, planned activities, specific project profiles with timelines, applicant’s background, business entity structure and management team. The most important factor that the USCIS looks at thoroughly is the job projections in the economic report: how will the money invested in a project be used to capitalize and operate the project in a manner that results in the claimed creation of jobs?

The Operational Plan describes the funding structure of the Regional Center, anticipated capital sources including due diligence procedures with respect to foreign investments fund, allocation of funds to promotional activities, and administrative oversight procedures.

The Economic Impact Analysis Report sets forth, based upon economically or statistically valid forecasting tools, a detailed prediction of how jobs will be created indirectly through the Regional Center, and how the Regional Center will positively impact the regional or national economy in general.

Lastly, the Sample Agreements include various legally binding documents that would be executed by a foreign investor incident to their investment in a Regional Center-based new commercial enterprise. These agreements must not only make sense from a business standpoint but also not comply with any EB-5 requirements.

All four components are critical to Regional Center Proposal and making sure that they are in order and detailed to the fullest extent will help to ensure approval from the USCIS. Some developers even look to experienced EB-5 consultants for the proper guidance on creating the proposal. Established EB-5 consultants have worked with various Regional Centers and are familiar with the approval process which can minimize the time it takes to receive approval and begin the recruitment of investors and the development of business.
