Flavio Maluf Provides Useful Insight Into The Potential Consequences Of Britain’s Exit From European Union

One of the most important news circulating in the media is Britain’s exit from the European Union. As economic pundits continue to shed light on the future impact of the exit, Brazilian businessmen are also keen to learn about the impact on the local economy. Perhaps, the best person to ask is Flavio Maluf, one of the most prominent businessmen in Brazil, who is well-known for his contacts in the international arena. His company Eucatex is famous for delivering quality environment-friendly construction products around the world. In addition, Flavio also has important political connections in the developing world and Europe.

When asked about the possible impact of the exit, Flavio Maluf pointed to the immediate negative consequences. For instance, the stock market in Europe fell drastically after results of voting were announced. The impact was also catastrophic on the British currency as Pound Sterling took a direct hit shedding its value by 12 percent, which is the lowest level since 1985. The immediate impact means that investors around the world are looking cautiously to the future proceedings.

Commenting on the British economy, Flavio insisted that the country will need to cope with negative trade consequences in the short-term. However, the negative impact can be controlled because Britain offered more output to the EU compared to the overall input it received. Perhaps, the exit will likely hurt EU in the long run, instead. As Britain comprised the three most powerful economies within the EU, the exit will mean that France and Germany may need to tackle the brunt of economic pressure. Because the economy of France is already weak, Germany will need to come forward and make plenty of important decisions. In case, Germany and France are not able to take the pressure, it can also lead to the end of EU.

Regarding the impact on Brazilian entrepreneurs, Flavio sees the exit as potentially beneficial to the local economy. Actually, the exit will allow Brazilian firms to create new bilateral agreements that are not depended on strict EU trade rules. Creating new agreements also make a lot of sense because export to Britain only constitute 2 percent of the overall trade outflows of the Brazilian market.  Check out Flavio’s blog for a more in depth break down.

WEN by Chaz Puts The “Gorg” Factor In Blogger’s Limp Sad Locks

Most of us want gorgeous hair that shines like crazy, looks full and can hold a style. Many of us are stuck with fine, thin tresses that just sit there, look limp and unmanageable.
That’s the kind of hair blogger Emily McClure was stuck with and fighting to control daily. She had seen those cool WEN hair infomercials with famous heads and fabulous manes all boasting about healthy hair with a no lather shampoo experience. Emily wanted that Hollywood hair, so she decided to try WEN by Chaz for seven days and report her findings to Bustle.com.

WEN by Chaz is the brand of the no lather shampoo system, one that removes all the harsh chemicals found in store bought hair care products. Instead, WEN is all about healthy ingredients that are plant-based and designed to strengthen strands from root to end, add ultra shine and super body to every hair type on the planet.

The creator of WEN is longtime celebrity stylist Chaz Dean, a hair guru who knew that sulfates were destroying many heads of hair. His gentle, superior cleansing conditioners are pure and natural and made with the highest standards. His loyal star clientele have been fans of WEN by Chaz for years now. Wen by Chaz products are available on Sephora, it can also be ordered directly from the Amazon website.

Emily began writing about WEN in a daily journal and even snapping hair selfies. It took a bit for her hair to become accustomed to the WEN system, but once she got going, her hair looked “gorg!”

Here are Emily’s tips for achieving great Wen results:

1. Wash with WEN every morning and stick to that routine.

2. Use a lot of product. Emily skimped on the amount. You need lots to massage in.

3. Always use time and effort–Blow-dry and style after the cleanse.

That’s all; you will get fab hair.

Bob Reina: Creator and Great Man

It is rare in today’s society to find someone that is not only a great person, but they have also created a great product. Oftentimes, when someone has created something and comes into great wealth, it changes them and not always for the better. In fact, sometimes it changes them in a bad way and they aren’t the same person. They become greedy, selfish, and sometimes people don’t even remember the person they thought they once knew. In the case of Bob Reina, it is actually the opposite. The more Talk Fusion has grown and the more money he has made, the better person he has become. It has had the opposite change on him. He was always a good person, but now he has the resources to use that wealth for something positive and something good.

The company has been around since 2007 and ever since they first opened up, they have been about helping people and making a difference. They figured if they were going to make this great product which includes video email, video conference, and video chat, why not use it to help others out in other avenues of life? I read a recent story that brought a tear to my eye because it shows the true measure of Bob Reina. He donated $1 million to the Humane Society of Tampa Bay. As an animal lover, it was impossible not be immensely moved by that donation.

You don’t find people like Bob Reina every day. He is tireless in his efforts to help people, change the world, and make it a better place. It is truly 24/7/365 for him. In fact, he looks for ways to help people. He is always looking for companies to help, people to help, and as I mentioned, animals.

Bob knows he is a lucky man and if he can’t share that luck and that good fortune with others, what is the point of it all, really? These are the kinds of questions that a thoughtful man like Bob asks himself each and every night before he goes to bed.
