Some people are very uninformed about the land of Brazil. There are vague ideas of it being a land of chocolate and coffee-skinned people, beaches and the Amazon Rain forest. However, it is more than just those things. Brazil is like another version of America, in many different ways. For example, it happens to be a place where people of different ethnic groups immigrated to. However, the proportions of various races are different than in America. For example, in America, the population has been mostly white-Caucasian for the majority of the country’s history. For the majority of Brazil’s history, much higher proportions of the population have been non-white. Africans and natives made up large portions of the population in Brazil.

Also, the landscape in Brazil is similar to that of United States of America. Both countries have a plethora of different landscapes. For example, America has deserts, mountains, hot climates, cold climates, hills, forests, swamps and marshes. Brazil also has these things. Both countries are also large enough to the point where they cover numerous degrees of longitude and latitude. This results in each country having more than one time zone.

It also results in each country having different levels of sunlight in different locations. For example, in Natal, where Wish Natal is located, the hours of sunlight roughly equal the hours of darkness more frequently and are more constant than Gramado, the place where St. Andrew’s Mountain is.

Guilherme Paulus is a native of this great, America-like land of many landscapes. He jumped into the tourism industry in 1972, and is currently the CEO of a company called CVC Brazil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. Guilherme Paulus ran the company in such a way where its name is now known by many. CVC has expanded its services in such a way to offer as many people opportunities as possible. Different things are offered to customers. Also, the company founded by Guilherme Paulus gives employment to Brazilians who are in need of incomes. Guilherme Paulus has made amazing improvement to the company.

Starting as a small meat market and butcher shop in Chicago in 1909, OSI Group is in 2018 one of the largest food providers in the world, estimated to have a net worth of $6.1 billion. With over 20,000 employees at 65 facilities in 17 countries, OSI Group was ranked at number 58 by Forbes in 2016 in the list of largest private U.S. companies.

The small butcher shop that turned into an empire was first opened by Otto Kolschowsky, a member of the German immigrant community in Chicago, Illinois. Opening it only 2 years after arriving in the United States, he managed to do good business and by the end of the First World War, he had expanded into the wholesale side of the business. In the aftermath of the Second World War a business alliance with the McDonald’s restaurants proved fruitful and helped the company expand.

The adaptation of the cryogenic food processing technology in the 1970s was cutting-edge and helped with the company’s intense growth. OSI Group never stopped integrating the latest technologies in food safety and quality, their efforts also being focused on the way modern food production impacts the environment. As a result of their exemplary management of environmental risks, OSI Group won the 2016 Globe of Honour from the British Safety Council.

While McDonald’s continued to be a major customer and proved to be of great importance in the company’s history, OSI Industries also ventured into other sectors of the food industry. The broadening of the products they offer turned out to be a success. As a result, alongside the meat-based products they provide, they also produce salsa, beans and tofu products. They became one of the most vital food providers in the world as a result of a series of strategic expansions and joint ventures in the 1980s and 1990s in countries like Brazil, Poland, Hungry and Austria.

The transition from a small regional supplier to a global corporation that transpired made OSI Industries transform the food processing industry as they produced an affordable and consistent product.

During his teens, he became aware that he was attracted to other guys, but because of fear of harassment, he was not able to come out to anyone. It was not until after he moved away from home shortly before his 16th birthday that he was able to come out to the public as gay.

Apart from competing at the 2014 Commonwealth Games and 2011 and 2015 Pan American Games, Gareth Henry was also part of the national team that won the men’s team bronze at the 2018 Pan Am Men’s Team Championships.

Henry’s partnership with Samuel O’Brien Ricketts clinched him the men’s double gold at 2018 Central American and Caribbean Games.

It has taken decades before the dawn of technology shone on the financial credit industry. However, with the formation of GreenSky Credit in 2006, things started taking a new dimension. The founders of this organization had realized that the financial lenders were exploiting their borrowers and hence felt the urge to curtail the unnecessary culture. The process of loan application had also been quite tedious for the borrower since a lot of scrutinies and filling in details were involved. Sometimes, the borrowers could even leave the institutions without getting enough funding as they had anticipated or they would have wished. Due to all these challenges, GreenSky Credit was formed with the aim of liberating the borrowers from all the plights to which they were subjected. The introduction of GreenSky Credit also came as a rescue to the small financial creditors since the company lends these firms money that they, in turn, lend to their customers.

In return, GreenSky gets a commission from the funds lent to the borrowers, hence making the relationship mutual. With this kind of mutual business relationship, it becomes easier for the financial creditors to maintain their clients since they can suffice the needs of the customers. On the other hand, GreenSky Credit can also transfer its credit risk to these small institutions and therefore boost its profitability. Recently, David Zalik, the CEO and the President of GreenSky Credit announced the launch of an online portal that will enable the borrowers and the creditors to interact in real-time communication. This platform will be under the management of GreenSky, but it will be accessed by the lenders and the borrowers. It will enable the borrowers to initiate the loan application process without having to move to the creditor’ premises.

Once the borrower has filled in the application details, they will be submitted to the financial creditors for approval. Following the approval will be the authorization of GreenSky Credit by these institutions to credit the accounts of the borrowers with the appropriate amounts on their behalf. Then from there, the customer can wait comfortably for the funds to reflect on their bank accounts within less than 48 hours.

Everyone in Dallas knows who Stream Energy is, but what they may not know is just how important Stream Cares, their foundation for giving back really is to them. The idea that a corporation can give back is plausible, but many corporations today now see the need to launch a way to give back to the community. Several companies have been touted for their giving back to third world countries, but when hurricane Harvey hit Dallas, Stream Energy saw that the need was here in the moment.

Giving back is important and it’s admirable. However, there is another advantage for any corporation that does this. Giving back can and will help to earn the respect and loyalty of its customers. Additionally, as this model grows, it is also a way for those who may become clients in the future to focus their attention the corporation that’s giving back. Corporate giving can also become a helpful influence when something comes down the pike to influence how the community views a company’s actions. Stream Energy has no doubt become more than an energy company to the city of Dallas.

Stream Cares has been active for many years with very little publicity. Over the last twelve years, Stream Energy has been involved with some well-known organizations like The Red Cross and Habitat for Humanity. These two organizations are a few that encourage a grass roots movement, in which people from the community are helping others from the community in need. It’s a beautiful picture of how a business suddenly becomes more than about it’s product or service.

Stream Energy has always promoted their energy service through direct selling, and if people in the community didn’t notice them before, they most certainly do now. Although they offer fixed-rate energy plans, they now also offer mobile phone plans. This energy company has certainly grown, not just financially but also because they have encouraged their employees to care for others.

Rocketship Education CEO, Preston Smith has recently struck back after a blogger for NPR published an unbalanced article about the charter school system. Some praise came in from social media users, but journalists and charter school supporters criticised the work of blogger Anya Kamenetz for its unbalanced view of the subject. Journalists and commentators described the article as unbalanced for lacking both critical and supportive viewpoints to back up its anecdotal evidence.

Rocketship Education was established by CEO Preston Smith and John Danner who both worked as educators in the San Jose, California public school system. Since establishing the charter school network in 2006, Smith and Danner have become innovators in the education sector. Among the main innovations of the pair is the need for teachers to spend time with their students in their home environment to gain a better understanding of the issues each student faces.

Preston Smith appears to have decided to go public with his annoyance at the view provided by the NPR article because the issues identified at Rocketship Education are the same as those experienced by educators across the country. Technology, staff, and classroom management are all issues school managers across the U.S. are struggling to solve every day.

Three main issues have been addressed by Preston Smith as he defended the Rocketship Education model following the NPR article. Technology has always been something charter schools have been the forerunners of and tech-savvy students at Rocketship Education are given a series of high-quality apps. Preston Smith believes the use of technology is a part of the education sector every educator will have to accept in the future. The second major issue addressed in the NPR article was that of culture and school rules which Rocketship Education uses to ensure each campus does not descend into chaos. School-wide restroom policies are common across the U.S. because anarchy would reign without a strict set of rules and regulations.
