Flavio Maluf Points out the Economic Implications of the UK Exiting the European Union

Flavio Maluf is an acclaimed executive in Brazil. He is known for being outspoken on a variety of issues, precisely those concerning economics. Last year, Flavio could not fail to analyze a historical situation that would affect the global economy, Brexit. He pointed out four implications that would be triggered by the departure of the United Kingdom from the EU.


  • British Economy


In this case, Flavio Maluf drew the impact from Paulo Figueiredo, the director of operations of FN Capital. Paulo asserted that the UK’s departure would result in a significant decline in the investments it receives. Further, the end of free movement of goods and people between EU member countries would trigger adverse outcomes.


  • Foreign Trade in Europe and the UK


Flavio suggested that the exit from the EU would mean that the UK would institute new rates on quotas and tariffs. This would most likely affect its foreign trade with the EU negatively.


  • Brazilian Imports and Exports


According to Flavio, Brazil stood a high chance of benefiting from bilateral agreements with the UK. Nonetheless, he said the benefits would be minimal since the UK is not a top trading partner of Brazil.


  • European Union


The exit would mean a significant loss for the EU as most of its structures were centered around the UK, France and Germany. With France displaying weakness in its economy, it is up to Germany to support the EU economically.

Social Action and Hollywood Chops, the Peculiar Career of Thor Halvorssen

The terms, “Renaissance man,” and, “Politically uncategorical,” have both been used to describe the noted political activist, Thor Halvorssen Mendoza, the son of the famous Venezualean investigative journalist and television CEO, Thor Halvorssen Hellum. One of the reasons why Mr. Halvorssen has earned such a reputation is due to the depth and breath of his work which extends well beyond the political arena. Though he is primarily known for social activism and his association with the highly regarded, non profit human rights institution, The Human Rights Foundation, a group he co-founded and chairs to this day, Halvorssen also has many ties and connections to Hollywood and the independent film circuit where he has produced numerous films, namely, documentaries that cover many of the topics his foundation attempts to bring to light. Watch Video Here .

Halvorssen’s first made headway in the world of cinema in the mid 2000s with work on the 2006 documentary film Hammer and Tickle. The film discusses how the commoners during the the reign of the Soviet Union utilized comedy and satirical humor to critique the repressive political power structure right under Stalin’s nose. That same year Halvorssen executive produced the documentary, Freedom’s Fury, another documentary which focused in on infamous Melbourne Olympic games, specifically the water polo match between Hungary and Russia in which, tensions boiled over to such a point due to political strains between the two countries that the match ended in bloodshed, earning the event the historical title of the Blood in the Water Match.

From there Thor would produce The Singing Revolution, another documentary film which focused on Soviet corruption and the various and hopeful ways the Estonians of that time period used songs as covert political measures to resist their oppressors.

In 2007 he produced two films, both of which recieved generally positive reviews, the first of which was The Sugar Babies, a documentary which looked into the corruption surrounding the sugar trade in Haiti and then, later that same year, he produced the film for which he is generally most widely known, Indoctrinate U. Indoctrinate U was one of the most widely talked about films that Halvorssen had done up until that point but also one of the most controversial and contended due to the fact that it examined the near totalitarian atmosphere which had taken hold of nearly all major and minor college campuses in the United States of America. Halvorssen continues to work in the field of film to this very day and is currently working with the X-Men 2 director, Bryan Singer, on a big screen adaptation of R. A. Heinlein’s science fiction classic, The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. Thor LinkedIn .

How Construcap Is Expanding Its Activities

The construction industry is one of the primary drivers of economic growth in Brazil. Over the last decade, the industry has undergone a massive restructuring driven by the structural transformation of the Brazilian economy. In 2009 to 2013, the industry grew at 7.1%, thanks to the increased demand for real estate, huge government’s investment programs to address infrastructure deficiencies and prepare the country for the hosting of the 2014 FIFA World Cup and the 2016 Olympic Games.


In 2014, the company entered a recession but not as worse as the one experienced in 2006. The industry experienced a decrease in output leading to a decelerating economy. However, credit supply was unrestricted, and there was high domestic demand but not as high as the one experienced in 2009 to 2013. This affected the growth of the Brazilian construction sector.


Despite the slow development of the construction sectors, Construcap has beaten the odds and continued to receive construction projects. Construcap is a Brazilian-based construction company that was established in 1944 by five engineers namely; Iório Adami, Júlio Capobianco, John Ulic Burke Jr., José Mandacaru Guerra and José Ribeiro do Valle. In 1972, the company established the Construcap CCPS Engineering and Trade subsidiary from a merger between Construcap Engineering and Trade and Construtora Pereira de Sousa.


The company operates in both public and private markets in the segments of buildings, infrastructure, and energy. It completes a wide variety of projects such as pre-construction, structured projects, heavy construction and electromechanical assembly.


Construcap has a written Business Commitment which emphasizes the importance of safety, integrity, and excellence and also its relations with clients, partners, employees, and other interested parties. The company aims at continuously developing its processes to successfully complete its projects while considering the environment. Construcap is ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 certified implying that it continuously improves its products and services to satisfy customer requirements and that it complies with strict standards to promote environmental protection respectively.


Construcap has always produced quality outcomes, making it stand out in the construction industry. In 2012, the Exame magazine named Construcap, the most profitable construction company in Brazil. In 2015, the O Empreiteiro magazine published the Industrial Construction Ranking for the first time based on the number of industrial works done from 2013 to 2015. Construcap was one of the largest, securing the 7th position.


Flavio Maluf Explains the Economic Impacts of the Brexit Vote

In mid-2016, British citizens took part in a historic vote, which saw the country severe economic and political ties with the European Union. Brazilian businessman and corporate executive, Flavio Maluf, asserts that the withdrawal of the UK from the European bloc is likely to have both immediate and long-term implications on the global economy. According to Maluf, trade and investments between Britain and its former allies within the EU bloc will reduce.


Trade barriers are already being imposed. It should be noted that these tariffs didn’t exist previously. Despite this, Maluf opines that the withdrawal presents countries like Brazil an ample opportunity to form multilateral trade agreements with the United Kingdom. At the moment, the two countries do not have any significant ties. In addition, they are not each other’s main trade partner. Therefore, there is need to strengthen cultural and economic ties between the two since both stand to benefit significantly. The ties are likely to be fortified by the fact that Brazil no longer has to deal with the EU first when engaging with Britain.

This Girl Proved That WEN Cleansing Conditioner Is The Real Deal

With so many hair care products claiming to use natural ingredients, it’s hard to know which ones are telling the truth. One of the most popular products of all in the natural hair care market is WEN Cleansing Conditioner. By now, we have all seen those infomercials with celebrity hairstylist Chaz Dean promising that his unique formula transforms dull and damaged hair in no time.

Emily McClure decided to try the product out on her limp, fine and dull hair. In fact, she kept a hair diary so that she could keep track of her hair’s progress as she applied Wen Cleansing Conditioner to her hair each day. The results were surprising.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner’s Unique Formula

As it turns out, WEN Cleansing Conditioner really does contain a completely natural and plant-based formula. While most hair care products are full of sulfates that strip hair of its natural oils and contain synthetic preservatives, WEN Cleansing Conditioner by Chaz Dean (http://chazdean.com/) relies on botanical extracts and vegetable glycerin to gently cleanse hair while restoring much-needed moisture to damaged strands.

WEN Cleansing Conditioner also takes the place of many products in one bottle. The product acts as a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, detangler and deep conditioner.

The Results

Although Emily was dubious about the product’s lofty claims, she quickly discovered that WEN Cleansing Conditioner does what it promises. After just one day of using the product, her hair was noticeably healthier, softer and more voluminous than ever before. She continued to use the product on her hair daily. Each day, her hair was softer, shinier and fuller.

By the end of the week, Emily’s friends commented on how gorgeous her hair was. After just seven days of applying WEN Cleansing Conditioner to her hair, Emily had achieved full, lusciously soft and healthy hair that she had never before thought possible.

Law Enforcement Give Rave Reviews Of Securus Technologies

There is currently a battle being waged to secure government contracts to provide telecommunications services to state-run prisons across the country. These contracts are incredibly lucrative and allow a particular telecommunications company to provide services without any competition. Some companies, like Global Tel-Link, abuse this incredible position of power by charging abnormally high rates for terrible call services. Global Tel-Link’s biggest competitor, Securus Technologies, runs an ethical business that is highly regarded by law enforcement agencies.


I think it is incredibly important which companies get these contracts because one of them is unethical and the other actually helps our society. You don’t have to look very far to understand the differences between these companies. You can just read the prisoner’s reviews of these companies to see that Securus Technologies charges a fair price and runs in incredibly good customer service wing.


But I don’t think many people are very concerned with the treatment of prisoners. I think more people are concerned with what law enforcement agencies think about these companies. In a recent press release, Securus Technologies is exalted by law enforcement officers for the recent software innovation.


Securus Technologies aids police officers who are investigating crimes. Every single phone call that goes through the technologies company is recorded. This alone allows police officers to listen in on prisoner phone calls in order to pick out any potentially helpful pieces of information. Of course, this recorded database of information would be useless if it were not for Securus Technologies latest software innovation.


All a police officer has to do is get a recording of a suspect’s voice. That voice is fed into the software program, analyzed and its vocal signature is locked onto. The software can then pull up every single telephone recording of that particular person for a police officer to review.

Food Preparation News: OSI Group Purchases Flagship Europe

Consolidating the food service industry has been one of the goals of one of America’s Top 100 food companies: the OSI Group. The latest acquisition involves Flagship Europe. This recent acquisition serves two purposes: 1. increases the brands’ presence in Europe and 2. expands its product line.

“Brexit Business Opportunities”
Many individuals and companies are still unsure of the full ramifications of Brexit. This vote represented the uncertainty, frustration and rejection of the present European Union politics. The good news is that Brexit may offer a number of corporate acquisition possibilities for the astute.

Previously, British food services were focused on providing products for the entire continent. As the European Union has struggled, some might have decided to cut back. Now, the OSI Group can purchase the high-quality UK food businesses, which might want to readjust their long-term plans.

Follow OSI Group on Crunchbase and LinkedIn

“Expanding Food Line”

Nowadays, there is no reason to “reinvent the wheel,” there are already plenty of great foods to find, all around the world.

OSI Group acquisitions take fully-developed food product lines with sales staff and customers, adding them to its strong business management team with its solid capital resources. Banks are less hesitant to lend to large conglomerations.  Everyone wins with these food service acquisitions.

“Capital Resources for Expansion”

Flagship Europe supplies mayonnaise, sauces, dressings, sous vide products, pies and frozen poultry to the UK market. After the Brexit vote, its European funding sources might have dried up. Now, it can expand with the addition of OSI Group funding.

Flagship Europe’s chief executive Russell Maddock said that new OSI Group capital sources, clients and markets “will enable us to serve our customers better and support our already successful business.”

OSI COO David McDonald said that Flagship’s addition will give “OSI a broader presence in Europe. The company’s portfolio of products and brands complements OSI’s current processing strengths while broadening our capabilities to best serve the evolving needs of our customers.” Everybody wins.
