Brazil’s Stock Market Could Be Profitable in 2015

Brazil is proving to be one of the best places to invest in 2015. Many people are looking to take advantage of the country’s financial woes to make a bundle. Brazil’s market value has dropped to an all-time low, and its dollar value has dipped to its lowest level since 2005.

Many analysts are saying Brazil is the place to go if you’re looking to make some real money. “With everything being marked down, smart money says Brazil is the best place to go,” says Scott Bok, CEO of Greenhill Investments. Although Brazil’s market has always had the tendency to expand, the unfortunate by product of that is corruption. Many analysts believe the country’s government is solely responsible for its woes.

Although many banks in Brazil suffered some under the populist policies, banker Igor Cornelsen gives a lot of insight as to why a few private banks were able to weather the storm. According to Cornelsen, knowledge of the market can make all the difference in the world. “You must know the basics,” according to Cornelsen. The long-time investment banker, who currently runs Bainbridge Investments, Inc., has a solid reputation as a financial advisor.

Cornelsen’s strategies often include long-term investments. He always coaches clients to do their homework, and avoid companies plagued with problems. Cornelsen also encourage investors to keep an eye on connected markets like China (Brazil’s largest trading partner) so you can get a better grasp on investments. Although Brazil’s market is a bit shaky, Cornelsen says the exportation of goods should put investing back on pace.

Potential investors would be wise to steer clear of energy stocks. Currencies and equities are slated to do good in the long-term. The bottom line is – get all the information you can before you invest. Brazilian investment blogs have a good deal of information.

I wish that Joseph Bismark was my boss!

 

It is amazing in this day and age to find a business man as well grounded as Joseph Bismark. His thoughts on creating harmony in the business place is quite honestly refreshing. To utilize his success to administer peace and goodwill in the corporate world is almost never heard of. When everyone else is trying to selfishly look out for number one it is good to know that maybe there are still truly great men as business leaders in our society. That Joseph Bismark has found a way to incorporate his spiritual values in the work place is commendable indeed.

Instead of trying to find happiness in the next luxury car, the next fabulous vacation and the next purchase of a luxury home Joseph realized that true happiness comes from within. Joseph Bismark has definitely broken a lot of the rules for bosses and businesses everywhere. He has shown real empathy for his employees and made it his mission to help everyone in the corporate world find some inner peace and stability. Most bosses in this day and age only truly care about profit, and what they miss is that only when your employees and business partners are in harmony can a corporation really fully move to the next level. If other businessmen started to think outside of the box like this great man I believe the world might just become a better place. I have seen some of his videos and blogs and he is truly inspirational.

I found an article on the WordPress blog Bring On The Random that I found insightful.I hope his messages of prosperity through peaceful environments spread far and wide because it is a directive to often neglected, especially in the workplace.

We can’t all have an amazing boss like the incredibly humble Joseph Bismark. We don’t all have the means to learn about inner peace on our journey of life to the mountains of the Phillipines. But we can take his messages and incorporate them on a daily basis and hope. After all, Hope is putting faith to work when doubting would be easier.

Growing as a Wikipedia Editor

Wikipedia is a gargantuan project that has revolutionized the way that information is shared and stored on the internet. Wikipedia currently has over four million pages of data and that number is always rising thanks to the hyper connectivity of the internet and the digital age that people are currently living in. In order to keep this information standardized and updated it needs a volunteer force to help funnel it into the proper locations. Many people dip their toes into becoming Wikipedia writers for hire but most never ascend to the upper tier of editors. Here are a few ways that new editors can grow into better Wikipedia editors.

Be bold but remain honest.
Wikipedia editing has a habit of making people nervous. New editors are afraid to edit content that has been around for a long time. This causes these editors to stick to small edits on lesser popular page. However, if an editor sees a place to update comment then they should boldly take the job in order to do it. Wikipedia is a collaborative effort where no one voice overrules another one. Be bold in the decision to edit but also only edit what can be done honestly and to the proper chain of protocol.

Partake in Wikipedia ‘missions’.
Wikipedia has so much data on their website that the occasional ‘mission’ will overtake the editors side of things. One such mission is Project Punctuation. Wikipedia wants their volunteer editors to focus primarily on updating the pages in order to comply with the Manual of Style’s outlook on how punctuation should be used in the Wikipedia. This is just one example of a mission. Follow any of the missions that get posted in order to help Wikipedia in a direct way that actually matters and will end up getting noticed.

Study the Manual of Style.
The Wikipedia Manual of Style is the compendium of rules and regulations that keeps Wikipedia one cohesive force of information. Ignoring the MoS or not remembering it can lead to articles getting pulled down and deleted. At best poor MoS standards will cause Wikipedia to degrade in quality. So always take time to refresh those rules and keep them at the forefront when editing. Following the MoS is integral in keeping the website looking good.

At the end of the day editing Wikipedia should be viewed as a passion project and that passion must extend to keeping the project looking good.

New Lawsuits Are Helping To Redefine What It Means To Be An Employee

Twenty years ago, it was pretty clear whether or not you were an employee of a company. If you were paid a regular wage, were expected to work a certain number of hours and had to obey a set of Handy company rules, than most people considered you an employee.

But with the rise of “demand economy” jobs like Uber, it’s no longer clear what rights workers have when they’re on the job. With any uncertainty comes lawsuits and a number of pending court actions may redefine what it means to be a worker in today’s economy.

For instance, Uber claims that it is merely a broker that connects potential riders and the drivers. But it is facing multiple international lawsuits that claim the company is essentially serving as the driver’s employer by setting rates, providing training and decommissioning drivers who receive too many bad ratings.

These lawsuits are expected to play out for many years. But when it’s all over, there may be a clearer answer to the question “Who do you work for?”
