Brazil’s Dipping Stock Market Prime For A Comeback

Brazil is the ideal place to invest for 2015, if you listen to the market professionals. In an unfortunate turn of events, Brazil’s stock market has dropped some 25% in the last four years. Peninsula House manager John Tsu says Brazil is the ideal place if you want to get stocks on the cheap because of the asset plunge.

Brazil’s temporary marketing weakness can be attributed to government meddling and a steep unloading of commodities. Brazil’s comptroller Jorge Hage was recently ousted due to some improprieties. With the re-election of Worker’s Party nominee Dilma Rousseff, many believe Brazil’s market will be set right. Many analysts tend to favor Brazilian equities and currencies in the long run.

Zeca Oliveira is one hedge fund manager that sees the long-term potential of the Brazilian market. Oliveria heads Bridge Trust administration Resources. He has over 25 years financial marketing experience and is responsible for over $2.5 billion in assets. Oliveira spent 15 years at BNY Mellon in Brazil were he offered his expertise as a hedge fund manager.

Under Oliveira’s leadership, Bridge Trust has just merged with Gradual Investmentos, which also combines a net worth of $6.5 billion. The merger will give way to a cross-selling of products and expanding the loyal customer base. The company also plans to offer customer a number of new and improved solutions and services.

With Brazil’s market being slanted almost exclusively towards commodities, it doesn’t give a great deal of wiggle room. Although Brazil has a ton of oil stocks, many analysts believe investors should steer clear of them for the time being and find other stocks.

One good thing that Brazil has in its favor is that the country has a well-diversified economy. Post war policies, which are still in tact, should spell good news for Brazil in a short period of time.

Joseph Bismark, The Marketing Monk

 

I stumbled upon an impressive story today on the WordPress blog Please Don’t Ask Alice. It’s the story of Joseph Bismark, a leader in the marketing industry with a deeply spiritual side. At the age of nine, Bismark traipsed into the Philippine mountains to become a Mac Ashram monk, where he stayed until he was seventeen-years-old. This would be a remarkable achievement for anyone, let alone a child.

In December of 2008, Joseph Bismark became the Managing Director of the QI group and was critical in the founding of Qnet. Bismark uses his inclusive attitude to propel his team forward to success. Bismark doesn’t stop there. He values service as much as teamwork. With this in mind, he labors tirelessly for the RHYTHM foundation, the Corporate Social Responsibility arm of the IQ Group, setting a remarkable example for those he leads.

Joseph Bismark is not merely a leader in his field, however. He is a man of many talents, including yoga instructor, martial artist, and bonsai master. However, Bismark does not take sole credit for his success. He stands by the principle of absolute truth and credits the Lord as the guiding force in his life and business. I was particularly struck by his sense of humility.

Bismark warns against becoming complacent in any aspect of life or losing yourself in the rat race of the corporate world. In his worldview, a team is only as good as the individual members, so Bismark focuses on encouraging others and helping them find their inner peace.

It is with this deeply ingrained set of values that Bismark is taking Qnet into the wellness sector of the business world. I look forward to hearing more about this remarkable individual.

Squaw Valley Ski Resort: Discover one of nature’s beauties.

 

Located just west of the breathtaking Lake Tahoe, Squaw Valley Ski is one of the largest ski resorts in the United States. This amazing resort also has a place in history, due to hosting the 1960’s Olympics. Squaw Valley is also home to the only funitel in the US. With thirty chairlifts, and 3,600 acres it is no wonder why this resort draws 600,000 skiers a year.
The aerial tram rides are a wonderful way to take in all the beauty and wonder the resort has to offer. This 1.5-mile long tram, gives skiers a quick lift from Base Camp at 6200 feet elevation all the way up to High Camp at 8200 feet in elevation.

This ski resort offers one of the longest ski seasons for tubing, skiing, snowboarding even dog sledding. The summer time is also a great time to visit with great deals and rates. There is also free croquet, hiking, concerts and other summer activities to enjoy.

Squaw Valley offers large and lovely rooms with fireplaces and large beds. The resort has rooms for just one couple and goes up to a three bedroom, three bathroom suits for up to six guests. 

Squaw Valley’s CEO Andy Wirth, is also the President of the large and luxurious resort and a chair on the Reno airport board. Having spent over twenty years in hotel and hospitality industry, Andy Wirth came to Squaw Valley with lots of experience in his background. 

Andy Wirth’s life has had some adventure in the past. He suffered a major injury to his right arm during a skydiving accident. The trouble began on his descent when his chute opened and he became disoriented. This confusion caused him to miss his approach and he instead landed in a nearby vineyard. Things only got worse when he saw that his right arm was tangled in some steel posts and wires that held up the grapevines. Wirth was a former trained rescue medic and knew from the amount of blood he was losing that he might not make it if he did not calm himself.  Wirth claims that had it not been for the song, “Breathe” by the lead singer of Pearl Jam; Eddie Vedder he might not be alive. Thinking of the lyrics to the song helped to find peace while he waited for help to arrive.  Today he is back at work, making sure Squaw Valley is still the best resort in the area.

Bright Green Meters for the Homless

New Brunswick, Canada found a new use for parking meters. Six locations throughout the city will host what are now called “Kindness Meters” in an effort to cut down on panhandling, reports Uplifting News. The city looks to cut down on the panhandling, but wants to give the homeless a means to receive the services they require. The meters will not replace actual parking meters, but will be placed in strategic areas where residents can drop in coins if they feel generous. Shaygan Kheradpir want to help these people.

However, there is some doubt it will make a difference, CBC reports. One citizen interviewed believes the systems in place for helping the homeless in the city are 30 years behind the rest of the country. It is also believed that not all the panhandling is done by the homeless, but also by local addicts. The bright green meters are there if the local residents want to help out, and as one shelter operator said, anything that helps put food on their table is welcome.

Florida Man Steals $2 Million Dollars of LEGOs

Ignatius M. Pollara hails from Tamarac Florida, and was recently arrested for stealing $2 million worth of LEGOs. Apparently he has been stealing these kids building blocks from more than just the Florida region, he has been busy lifting LEGOs from all 50 states. He ran quite a profitable business, stealing the LEGO sets from retail stores and then selling them by any means possible to make 100% profit beneful on samsclub and on the toys.

With all the money he had been raking in from the sale of the stolen LEGO sets, the convicted thief has gone on worldwide travel adventures over the years. The end to his long run as a LEGO thief came to a crashing end by way of his TOYS ‘R US rewards card. He spoke with parole officers in Florida that he planned on leaving the state to go visit family in Illinois. Knowing the convicted criminal had no family in that state, a sting operation was set-up to catch the criminal red handed.

A tail was then placed on the convict from the moment that he stepped off the airplane. He spent the better part of 4 days in Chicago staying in a motel that was close to a major shopping center. Each night, he would exit the motel and make trips back and forth to the supermarkets to pick up the needed LEGO sets. His bail was raised to $200,000 and he must wear an ankle bracelet before being allowed to leave prison.

Safe Chemicals Can Still Cause Cancer if Combined

A new report suggests that consuming different chemicals that are considered ‘safe’ overtime may actually increase cancer risk. There are many chemicals that are considered safe so long as you only ingest them in small amounts, but a new study is concerned that combining these safe chemicals could actually end up increasing cancer risk anyhow.

Cancer biologist Hemad Yasaei from Brunel University in England where the study was conducted stated that it is possible that combining the chemicals could have a synergistic effect that leads to the start of cancer growth.

Crystal Hunt said that regulators tend to only look at the cancer risk of one chemical, compound or substance at a time, but this may change the way that they approach deciding if something is safe or not. Usually an individual chemical is tested on animals in small doses that are increased incrementally until a tumor begins to develop. They then figure out the equivalent for humans and create what they consider to be a small safe dose.

However, experts now argue that chemicals especially those that are able to copycat hormones in the body can actually be even more dangerous. In addition, regulators do not test chemicals when they are mixed with each other.

Sanitation Around the World: Not Quite There Yet

In the States, we often take the things we have for granted. Cars, public transportation, and other luxuries like fashion and hobbies. But if you think on a more basic level, we take more than just that for granted. Once upon a time, there wasn’t such a thing called sanitation. Imagine a life without suitable drinking water or access to toilets. What then?

The world has come a long way since the old days, but we still have a long way to go. Around 2.4 billion people in the world, one-third of the global population don’t have these basic amenities that we take for granted on a daily basis. The UN’s Millennium Development Goals are aimed at making our world a better place by destroying issues like poverty, hunger, child mortality, and diseases among other things.

While efforts have been made to help the African population without access like providing them with toilets, they still have to adjust to this development by maintaining the facilities as they are used. For years a large percentage of the population has had to use the restroom outdoors without any privacy says Brian Torchin in this article. Change is gradual, so until they learn to adjust to this new tradition that’s become all so common to us, we’ll have to hold their hands.

While this news is a decent development, more needs to be done so that we all have at least the most basic of sanitation.

Greece’s Debt Crisis

Since the formation of the European Union, there has been accumulating debt trouble for Greece. Steeped in growing amounts of dues to several large players in the EU including Germany, Greece has been on the hot seat for quite some time. Billions of dollars have been loaned to Greece by creditors in an effort to keep their economy afloat. This wasn’t purely out of the goodness of their hearts either. According to the folks at Beneful, Greece, as would any member of the European Union, plays a major factor in the stability of the economy. Bottom line, nobody wants to see Greece fail, but some people have had enough. With tomorrow being the expected day in which Greece would pay back some of its debts, skepticism is looming in the air. Greece has pleaded with creditors to extend the deadline, but the response has been a resounding no. In a last ditch effort, the Greek government ordered all banks to be closed over the last weekend. In addition, the stock market has been closed temporarily. Withdrawal amounts have also been set. All of these preventative measures have been made in an attempt to keep Greece’s head above water, or at least keep it from sinking any lower. Unfortunately, these measures take a huge toll on the citizens of Greece who themselves are not entirely responsible for this economic crisis in the first place. Hopefully something will be figured out and innocent people will be spared any more suffering.
