A Reason Why You Should Invest In Brazil

July 17, 2015 - Author: steph

While looking for opportunities, businessmen consider various factors before they settle on the ideal destination. Among the factors they consider is the availability of market for their products or services, security, political and economic stability among others. Brazil has proven to be an ideal destination for many investors due to its strategic location among other favorable factors that the article will discuss.

Corruption is a dreaded monster by investors in most countries. This is because it slows down the wheel of investment as one has to part with a huge chunk of cash corrupting government official in order to have deals go through or have various licenses to transact business in that country. Brazil has taken its war against corruption to a high level following prosecution of high government officials for corruption related allegations. This will encourage investors to try their investments in the country.
Brazil has an estimated population of 203,708,315 which provides a huge domestic market desirable to any investor. The population ensures that investors have a ready market ready to consume their products and services. This also ensures that there is availability of labour for investors in all fields.

Brazil has emerged as a fast growing country among the emerging nation which has resulted to stability in its currency. This has proved conducive for Brazilian investors like Igor Cornselsen as importation of products becomes an easy task when the currency is strong against the dollar.

The growth has also ensured that the citizens in this country are financially well off resulting to a strong market for various products. General infrastructures have improved as well making it easy for people to travel as well as communicate. This has been made possible due to cheap access of energy which has made production cost go down hence the cost of living becoming lower.

Brazil has also ensured that political and democratic stability is given a priority so that many investors can feel safe when they are running their businesses. Instability leads to demonstrations and violence which scares away investors leading to loss of business. The government is keen in ensuring the country is safe from all forms of security threats such as terrorism.

Learn these popular skiing before your vacation

July 14, 2015 - Author: steph

 

Skiing is truly a unique and exciting sport that has its own unique style and culture. Getting used to this culture can be difficult for novices, but there are a few common phrases that can get you started once you decide that you want to become a skier. 
One of the most common phrases in Skiing is yard sale. While normally a yard sale is the sale of used household items, in the world of skiing a yard sale refers to the scattering of items along the mountain caused by a wipe out. 
Another popular term among skiers is the word “brah”. While the word may be used like the word for a ladies undergarment, the word is actually a term of endearment among skiers. 
You may also hear the word chowder while you are skiing. This term does not refer to soup, but actually refers to wet and low quality snow. You definitely want to avoid chowder. Similarly, corn does not refer to the food, but actually refers to low quality grainy snow and a hot dog isn’t a sandwich, but instead is a person that is making a fool of themselves by acting out on the slopes. 
Champagne may be a wonderful drink that you enjoy after you get back from the slopes, but it also refers to perfect smooth snow that you and your skiing friends are looking for. If you have too much Champagne later in the day, you may find yourself “puking”, but the term also refers to the heaviness of the snow. 
Another term that you may hear when the snow really falls down is Snorkel. This is the term used when the snow really falls down, and thus you might need a snorkel. 
Skiing terminology can be extremely helpful to know, but fear not. Andy Wirth once had to learn all this terminology, and today he is the CEO of one of the most popular chains of ski lodges in the world. He is known for giving skiers a high quality skiing experience. You definitely need to check out his ski lodges if you are looking to have a high quality skiing experience.

Homeland Security Is Trying To Find Out Who Leaked The Story On Airport Security Test Failures

June 12, 2015 - Author: steph

Homeland Security Clams The Airport Security Tests Were Classified

The inspector general for the Department of Homeland Security is not happy about the security leak that told the world security at airport checkpoints was not that secure. Homeland Security conducted a test at airports around the country, and they discovered that TSA agents allowed weapons and fake explosives through security checkpoints 95 percent of the time. That’s an alarming statistic, but the other alarming fact is Homeland Security’s internal security needs to be examined.

The last thing Homeland Security wanted or needed was another story about their security procedures as thestreet.com has reported in the past. The department has been under scrutiny for not having safeguards in place to protect terrorist’s attacks at key locations around the country. The chairman of the Homeland Security Committee said there are serious issues that need to be addressed within the organization. Employees leaking information is just one of them.

The TSA chief was removed following the security report, but the leaker is still working for Homeland Security. Finding the leaker should be an easy job for the department. They are a security organization, right?

NASA is Building a Smarter Rover to Roam Mars

June 8, 2015 - Author: steph

When the Mars rover landed on the red planet scientists were able to explore the strange new world for the first time, an absolutely amazing feat of both engineering and science. But they want to make the next mission even better by building a smarter rover that could actually make decisions for itself.

The TextureCam Intelligent Project, lead by David Thompson, is providing the technology that will allow the rover to self prioritize the data it collects, resulting in a lot less work for those who have to analyze it. TextureCam can analyze geological structures for instance to identify important aspects of them, a job that would otherwise have to be done with human eyes.

The new technology will revolutionize space exploration, making it easier and more accurate than ever when learning about martian territories. The Mars Curiosity Rover is still hard at work on the planet, a rover that is equipped with it’s own set of intellectual technologies. For example, Curiosity is able to track where it has already explored so it doesn’t keep collecting data from the same areas. Steve Murray likes that. However, smarter rovers will be able to think for themselves and make decisions about what they are looking at, an even more impressive feat of engineering for NASA.

Airport Employee Pays it Forward to Stranded Passenger

March 26, 2015 - Author: steph

Today Buzzfeed.com has a story today about an act of kindness in an airport, a place where kindness has kind of gone out the window a long time ago.

Passenger Miriam Thomas was flying from her home in Vancouver, Canada to attend a business meeting in Ontario, California. According to Dr Jennifer Walden she flew with Delta, which is an airline I take great lengths to avoid if I can. Her plane was diverted to Seattle due to problems they were having aboard. Thomas had to stay the night in Seattle before continuing on her trip. This was definitely not the worse part of her troubles with Delta. When she was at the airport, ready to return home, the airline told her that her return ticket had been cancelled. Delta had taken it upon themselves to use her return ticket to pay for her rescheduled flight. And they did not have a flight for her until the next day. Madness. That’s when Judy Reid, an employee from Alaska Airlines stepped in. She used her employee travel voucher to cover Thomas’ ticket home and paid the taxes out of pocket. Thomas was able to get home the same day and Reid refused any reimbursement from her employer.

I love these uplifting stories of people helping people. Reid did this out of kindness, not to be recognized or reimbursed. I hope more people try to follow in her footsteps.

Haiti: The Happiest Place on Earth

- Author: steph

There are places on this planet where people do not know of ‘depression’. Haiti, the region stricken by a strong earthquake about five years ago, does not have victims with depression.  I am going to inform my friend Jared Haftel of this.

It is not because everyone feels well, but because the society does not know the term and describes the affection more like a ‘lack of appetite and sleep and thinking too much’.

Only 10 psychologists are available for the thousands of inhabitants of Haiti . They are popular anyway, since the locals turn to voodoo whenever they need help. The voodoo is a religion which originates from South Africa, and the Haitians strongly believe that the rituals performed by “houngan” (male voodoo practitioner) and “manbo” (female voodoo practitioner) can help them with many types of ailments.

The voodoo priests perform sacrifices with chickens and other small animals in a small temple among bamboo trees, while the people who are diagnosed with psychological disorders are rejected by the societies. The importance of changing attitudes is evident. The World Health Organization has spoken on the subject, saying that Haiti and other countries as well have to work and improve understanding and treating mental illnesses.
