Roberto Santiago Plans More Success

The Manaira Mall in Brazil is one of the biggest malls and has continuously performed despite the economic outlook in the country. It is a great mall that many people visit on a regular basis. It is also owned by Roberto Santiago who has worked tirelessly to be able to manage the mall and to make it better for the people who want to come there. Roberto has done a lot with the mall and for the mall. He has always made sure that he is doing what he can to keep up with the trends and the information that comes along with the trends. The mall has changed a lot but the main idea behind the mall has made it one of the most successful. Roberto knows that, without that success, he wouldn’t be able to help as many people as what he has been able to during that time.

When Roberto Santiago first opened the mall, he knew that he wanted it to be a place where people could come and shop while they were enjoying their days. He planned for it to have a lot of stores in it and that allowed him the chance to make sure that they were the best stores possible. With the different and always changing options that Roberto Santiago made in the store, he was able to show people the different ways that the stores could help them and they could find what they were looking for.

In addition to the options that he had while he was creating the mall, Roberto Santiago also knew that it was important for the mall that he was creating to be something that people could come to if they wanted to dine or enjoy a good bar. Starting out, he put the most popular restaurants in the mall. Over time, Manaira has been updated with the more popular restaurants. Santiago always works to make sure that his mall is not only on trend with the shops that are there but also with the restaurants that people enjoy visiting while they are shopping for the things that they need.

A mall wouldn’t be a mall without some type of entertainment and Roberto Santiago really went above and beyond with the options that he put into the mall. While the mall has around 11 movie theaters that people can choose from while they are visiting, it also has a conference and events center that people can come to enjoy concerts and other events. He makes sure that there is always something that is related to Brazil going on in the center so that it will be easy for people to know what they are learning about while they are there.

George Soros may have been world’s richest man

George Soros is one of the richest men in the entire world. He has gained a reputation among investors as being one of the most talented speculators in the history of the markets. His funds, beginning with Soros Fund Management, have returned over 25 percent, over a period of 40 years. This easily qualifies him among the most adroit and sophisticated investors who have ever lived.

But many do not realize the vast extent of Soros’ philanthropy. Since 1970, Soros has given away more than $15 billion, mostly through his philanthropic organization the Open Society Foundations. It’s interesting to note that Soros, unlike many of his plutocratic peers, has always had a keen interest in philanthropy and has donated vast sums of his personal fortune at every stage of his own development as an entrepreneur and speculator. This naturally leads to the question of just how rich Soros would be if he had never given away significant portions of his vast fortune.

Some investors, such as Warren Buffett, have held the philosophy that they can generate such phenomenal returns and that they are such good custodians of wealth that it would be improper of them to give away principle that they could otherwise put to work in the markets to reap outstanding returns. In fact, this philosophy is probably shared by the majority of those billionaires who appear on the Forbes 400 list. This means that many of these billionaires have never donated significant portions of their own wealth at any given stage of their lives. Instead, their entire capital has been given free rein to compound annually, generating phenomenal returns, year after year. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com.

So how rich would George Soros be if he had never given away any money? Even if we take a conservative estimate that, say, he only gave away the equivalent of $1 billion in the year 1980, we still find that money that was denied the opportunity to compound at 25 percent per year would have been worth vastly more than the starting principal amount. In fact, and the case of the billion dollars that was given away in 1980 and not allowed to compound, those funds today, compounded at 25 percent, over 37 years, would be worth $3.8 trillion. Just this relatively small amounts of George Soros’s lifetime net worth, allowed to compound over 37 years at his historical rates of return, would have easily made him the richest man, not just currently but in the entire history of the world.

Considering that it is very likely that Soros has given away the equivalent of more than 1 billion dollars in 1980, it is safe to conclude that, given his phenomenal ability to generate outsized returns, had he not given away substantial portions of his net worth over the course of his career, he would easily be the richest man in the world today.

Prison Communication

Customers Comment on Securus Helping to Prevent Crime

The way customers remark about a company can say values about its quality, and Securus Technologies isn’t shy to let the feedback they’ve received speak for itself.

 

Serving a very particular clientele, Securus has become one of the leading tech solutions companies that service law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities across the United States. In a testament to their continued commitment to giving their clients what they need in order to perform their jobs with the swiftness and assurances they require, Securus has published a collection of letters and comments that have been sent to them by real customers who appreciate the products and services they have on offer.

 

In a statement from Richard A. Smith, Chairman and CEO of Securus Technologies, taking the time to receive and review client feedback is part and parcel of how the company approaches business. Hearing how certain product and services are received by law enforcement and are applied in correctional facilities gives the company a sense of whether or not they are doing their best to provide their clients with what they need.

 

Secrus rolls out new products and services nearly every week, and with that high production output, Smith points out, it is essential to know just how much they are helping these vital institutions work. Being partly responsible for how public security is maintained, Securus makes sure that the channel of communication between the company and its clients remains free and flowing.

 

The letters come to the company by the thousands, and a great deal of the feedback stands as reassurance that the technologies provided by Securus has changed how many institutions carry out their duties in the service of the public for the better. That connection to serving communities and helping to maintain the peace has defined how the company carries out its business model.

 

Making this feedback public comes with a reminder from Smith that Securus has a standing open invitation to potential clients and investors who’d like to visit their headquarters in Dallas, Texas and see just how Securus Technologies operates in person.

 

Philanthropy

Bruce Levenson Owned The Atlanta Hawks And Served At Many Foundations

Bruce Levenson sold the Atlanta Hawks a little over a year ago to Tony Ressler after owning the team for about 11 years, reports Forbes.com. On the way out, he appears to have hit a snag with AIG, the team’s former insurance company. According to the Atlanta Journal-Constitution, Levenson along with Atlanta Hawks Basketball & Entertainment had opted to buyout then General Manager Danny Ferry’s contract as he would not be part of the new ownership, and under the insurance policy at the time AHBE and Levenson were entitled to file a claim for losss incurred by such an event. AIG however, does not acknowledge AHBE and Levenson’s rights to do so, and as a result have not honored this claim. Levenson and AHBE are planning to sue AIG for not honoring the claim, and for any damages relating to court costs.

Bruce Levenson has been a major business figure for nearly 40 years, primarily known for co-founding United Communications Group (UCG). He started this company out of his home where it began with his journal, Oil Express, a source of information for oil industry news. Soon he built the company portfolio to many other publications including technology journals, healthcare news, and even information about mortgage and real estate. UCG is also the owner of Gas Buddy, a gas price mobile app that’s come in handy for many truck drivers.

Levenson also sat on the boards of several charity groups including Hoop Dreams and the I Have a Dream Foundation. He also wanted people to learn about the importance of the Holocaust, so he started the “Bringing the Lessons Home” foundation to teach young people about it and even give them an opportunity to become tour guides at the Holocaust Memorial Museum. He also is the key founder of the University of Maryland’s Center for Philanthropy and Non-Profit Leadership, https://www.benzinga.com/news/17/03/9165680/university-of-marylands-non-profit-initiative-is-changing-higher-education.

Kim Dao’s Korean Skin Care Routine

Beauty and lifestyle blogger Kim Dao recently posted a video featuring Korean skincare products and their benefits. Dao shares that she’s been using Korean products for about two years now, and has noticed a difference in the moisture balance of her skin.

 

For the winter, she recommends a makeup remover like Banila Co Clean It Zero, which has papaya extract to cleanse the pores and promote skin cell turnover. The remover also has vitamin C, which is a natural skin brightener.

 

Kim Dao also recommends the Vanity Planet facial brush, which gives the skin a deep clean after makeup is removed. The brush also reduces pore size and removes bacteria from the face. She uses Etude House Baking Powder Cleansing Foam with the facial brush to thoroughly cleanse the skin and get rid of excess oil that can lead to breakouts.

 

After cleansing her face, Kim Dao uses a Collagen Moistful Toner from Etude House. The toner is alcohol-free and improves the texture of the skin while getting rid of any makeup residue. She also shares that aloe vera gel is ideal for moisturizing the skin after toning and getting rid of redness.
