HOW ROBERTO SANTIAGO BECAME A SUCCESSFUL BUSINESSMAN

Are you familiar with the business industry in Brazil? Well, if you are, the name Robert Santiago may sound familiar to you. Mr. Santiago is a well-known business person and entrepreneur who has built a reputation in the business industry by making a lot of successful strides in most of his career. The most common and known stride he made was building the largest and most glamorous mall in his hometown of Joao Pessoa. However, the success of this businessman did not come in one night. He has shown commitment and focus to achieve his goals and to be on top of his game when it comes to business.

Born and raised in Joao Pessoa, Mr. Roberto went to college at Pio X-Marist College. After this, he was able to qualify to attend university, and he earned his bachelor’s degree in business and administration at the University Centre of Joao Pessoa. Roberto first worked at a décor manufacturing company, Café Santa Rosa, for some time and gained a lot of knowledge and experience in the industry. Owing to his dream of starting a company on his own, Roberto left Café Santa Rosa and started a company of cartons. The main activity of his company was to produce and sell cartons made of cardboard.

With his skills and commitment, Mr. Santiago was able to elevate his company and it, later on, grew to even producing decorative products. He earned a lot of profits from his company saving enough to make a significant investment. Roberto came to a decision to invest his money in real estate. This would turn out to be the most important and major move in his career. Now venturing into a new industry, real estate, Roberto aimed at buying and developing land. This eventually gave him the idea of building a shopping mall. Without hesitation, he bought the land for the mall in 1987. It only took Roberto 2 years to complete the construction of the mall.

The official opening and launching of the mall was done in 1989. Ever since then, The Manaira Shopping Mall has grown to the impressive structure that is seen today. The mall has an outstanding number of 280 stores being highly versatile to accommodate everybody- from children to young adults and even the elderly. Some of the features of the mall include a food court that accommodates a relatively large number of people, a gaming zone, a concert hall, a theatre and financial institutions. Having been successful with Manaira mall, Roberto was motivated to build another mall in 2013, Mangeira shopping mall. This mall is also located in Joao Pessoa, and it is has shown a lot of positive progress since it was officially opened.

 

UTC Shall Thrive Thanks to the Work of Louis Chenevert

When we think of business legends, we often think of people such as Bill Gates or Steve Jobs and maybe even Warren Buffet. Not many people think of the name Louis Chenevert, but in reality, when we talk of business legends, his name should be toward the top of the list. Louis Chenevert was the chief executive officer serving at the United Technologies Corporation during the global recession of 2004 to 2008. During a time when countries around the globe were closing at an alarming rate, he was able to raise his company’s stock price by $90 over a span of four years. This alone would make him an expert in his field.

Louis Chenevert recently retired from the position of chief executive officer. The executive team thought it would be nice to hold a celebration in their CEOs honor.

During the celebration, the executive team had several people come forward and speak about the wonderful things that Louis Chenevert had done during his time as CEO. One person spoke on how he had the uncanny ability to prepare a large Corporation for cultural shifts. He told the story of how Louis Chenevert moved to make the company more friendly toward the environment. He recalled how the United States of America and Canada were preparing to slap the industry with the strictest environmental regulations it had ever seen. Louis Chenevert knew this was going to happen years in advance and made sure that UTC would not be harmed in this process. While other companies in the industry were shutting down or trying to catch up, United Technologies Corporation was grabbing all the additional contracts it could.

This memory led to another executive sharing his fond memory of Louis Chenevert. He recalled that the United Technologies Corporation was hit extremely hard due to the fact that it was producing airline products during a time when the global economy could not afford to subsidize the air industry. However, Louis Chenevert was able to acquire military contracts and infrastructure contracts that provided them with a large and stable income to offset deficits.

Why the Waiakea Water Brand is Unique

A few years ago selling water would sound irrational and an invalid investment. However, with time the industry has significantly grown due to the high demand for bottled water. In the grocery, you will find multiple water brands and even have a hard time choosing what you’ll take. For the consumers, this is an advantage because the competition allows for fair prices and quality products due to the presence of the substitutes in the market.

For the manufacturers, they have to go above and beyond to convince the consumers of why their brand is the best. The market value of bottled water globally is estimated to be $100 billion. There are many things that the producers will say in an attempt to promote their brand. Some will make the fanciest water bottles, others will insist that you can’t live without consuming their water brand, and most will say that their water has special minerals and their filtration process is flawless.

Waiakea water is one of the bottled brands in the market. The Chief Executive Officer of the firm, Ryan Emmons has decided to take a different turn that has challenged other manufacturers. To begin with; the Waiakea brand is based in Hawaii. This alone markets it because for some reasons, many consumers associate Hawaii products with natural products.

The other factor that promotes the Waiakea water is the fact that it is pure volcanic water. For filtration, the Waiakea water is run through 14000 feet in the Mauna Loa Volcano. This has given the brand a perfect electrolyte and pH balance. It also has an excellent mineral balance.

However, the late developments of the Waiakea water are what has contributed to its leading in the bottled water industry.

We understand that the introduction of bottled water has immensely affected the environment. There are bottles everywhere because most individuals are not disciplined enough to dispose of their water bottles in the right places.

To protect the environment; the Waiakea water brand is introducing decaying bottles. The plastic bottles are set to decompose in 15 years. This project will ensure that the environment is clean in the long last.

Get Fit with Jeunesse

There is never a bad time to start living a healthier and more active lifestyle. Many people try to start living healthier at the beginning of a new year. Sadly, a large percentage of these individuals fail to maintain this change to their lifestyles. One way to help increase the chances of maintaining this healthy change is by the use of various herbal supplements that are on the market.

One popular brand of supplements is the Jeunesse Global products. This company offers two unique lines of herbal supplement products. These products can be used individually or together. They can also be combined with the other various healthcare products that Jeunesse Global has to offer.

The first product is a line of two herbal supplements. They are designed to work best if the user takes both products as designed. The line is called AM/PM Essentials. It includes two different dietary herbal supplements that are designed to be taken in the morning and evening.

The second line of herbal supplements from the Jeunesse Global company is Finiti. This herbal supplement is a more advanced line that is made entirely from fruit and vegetable extracts. It is a choice product for vegetarians and individuals with various food allergies. The popularity to this line is based on the fact that there are no; artificial colors, preservatives, eggs, fish, shellfish, dairy, peanuts, tree nuts, wheat, or soy in this product.

The Jeunesse Global company was created by Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis in 2009. The company has a total of nine product lines that they call Youth Enhancement Products.

Increasing Relations can be Difficult

Daniel Taub is an ambassador who represents the state of Israel and has been doing so in the United Kingdom for a period of four years. During his time in the British Isles Taub has been able to increase relationships between the two countries and has increased international trade dramatically.

In a recent statement that he gave to a news media site, Daniel Taub has resigned his position within the British Isles and will be returning home to the state of Israel shortly. Read more: Daniel Taub | Ideamench and Daniel Taub | Crunchbase

This can be considered both a negative and a positive thing, although interestingly enough during an interview after the fact, Daniel Taub stated that sometimes there is bright in the darkness.

It is unknown exactly what he meant by this, although it can be speculated that it has something to do with the state that Israel is in within the rest of the world. Israel itself has not had its own country until much recently in history, having lived throughout Europe and amongst people that they did not identify with.

Daniel Taub and his family did not always live in Israel, and actually called the United Kingdom their home up until his family and he took a vacation to Israel to see the birthplace of their religion. The Taubs are devout Orthodox Jews, and the decision to move to Israel and become Israeli citizens was one that did not take them much time to decide.

This allows them to help their people, and in fact, Daniel Taub made the comment that he had finally returned home to his ancestral birthplace 2000 years after his family had been exiled from theirs.

It is unknown what Daniel Taub will do now that he has returned back to his home, although he will probably continue to offer expert levels of support to the people of Israel, and in doing so, the rest of the people across the world.

What really needs the direct attention is the relationships between Israel and her Islamic Neighbors. Israel had no choice but to defend itself in the 1960s when the surrounding Islamic countries declared war on them en mass.

When the dust had settled Israel was the victor, but relations between them and their neighbors have not increased since then. There is no doubt that with Daniel Taub on the job that relations between his country and they will soon increase for the better.

Jim Larkin

On January 21, 1876, James Larkin was born to a Irish parents in Liverpool, England. The boy, who would become known as Jim Larkin or “Big Jim” Larkin, went on to be central to the Irish labor movement.

Larkin’s early years were spent in poverty in Liverpool and, later, the small Irish village of Burren in the County Down. He received little formal education and had to go to work while still young. By his twenties, he had regular employment on the docks. These early experiences helped to shape his ideals.

In 1905, Larkin rose to prominence during a dock strike. Shortly after, he became a full-time organizer for the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL). It was in this role that he became the first to organize the unskilled laborers of Belfast. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.historyireland.com/20th-century-contemporary-history/big-jim-larkin-hero-and-wrecker/ and http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/easterrising/profiles/po08.shtml

Not long after a perceived betrayal by NUDL leaders during a lockout, Larkin was sent to Dublin to mobilize port workers. There he chose to break free and establish his own union, the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU). Read more: Jim Larkin | Biography

ITGWU quickly grew and became the largest in Ireland within just a few years. In 1911, Larkin established a weekly labor newspaper. The following year, he acquired Liberty Hall as the union’s headquarters.

During this same time, ITGWU had successfully organized almost all unskilled labor in Dublin. One of the exceptions was the Dublin United Tramway Company (DUTC). Confrontation with DUTC would lead to the 1913 Dublin Lockout and a sharp defeat for Larkin’s union.

After this devastation, Jim Larkin traveled to the United States to raise money to rebuild the union. His political activities led to his imprisonment for nearly three years. In 1923, he was deported back to Ireland where he was warmly welcomed.

Despite his efforts, however, he never again fully regained his standing within the labor movement. Instead, he eventually found himself pushed out of the very union that he had founded.

On January 30, 1947, Larkin died in Dublin. However, his legend lives on. He was commemorated with a statue in Dublin, and he has been mentioned in several poems and songs.

The main reason why the AIA was founded in 1857 in the city of New York was to create an association where its members would be governed and elevate their profession. It began with only 13 members and has grown to more than 90,000 architects. The initial members were, Leopold Eidlitz, Richard Morris Hunt, Henry Dudley, Charles Babcock, Edward Gardiner, Fred A. Petersen, Joseph C. Wells, Jacob Wrey Mould, John Welch Alexander, Jackson Davis, Calvert Vaux, Thomas U. Walter and Richard Upjohn as the president. Before this, there were no laws governing architecture, and hence anyone could claim that he/she was an architect

There are five membership levels at the AIA

  • Architect members: These are licensed members that practice with a license in the U.S.
  • Associate members: These are unlicensed architects who work under a licensed architect.
  • International members: These are qualified architects that studied outside the U.S. and hold a license
  • Emeritus members: These are members who are 65 years, and have been in AIA for more than 15 years successively. They could also be incapacitated members unable to practice as architects.
  • Finally, the Allied members, who are professionals that have an interest in architecture or are related to the art. They build and designs, e.g., planners, engineers or senior build and design executives. It also includes Product manufacturers and publishers.
