We Need to Fight for DACA

The DACA program is under attack. Members of the Republican Party have been fighting against DACA. It is possible that the program will be undermined. All across the immigrant community, people are getting very worried about this. DACA stands for Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It is a program that lets young undocumented immigrants work in the United States. They can get a social Security number, a license to work in the United States for two years (this license can be renewed), and in many states, they can even get a driver’s license.

 

The attorney general of the State of Texas sent a letter to President Donald Trump asking him to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. He said that he will file legal action if the Trump administration does not repeal Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. It will not be a quick stop. Instead, it will be a slow phasing off of the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. The first thing they will do is stop issuing visas to new immigrants. Eight additional attorneys general and even one governor signed their name on this horrible letter.

 

John Kelly was the head of Homeland Security. Now he is the Chief of Staff at the White House. When he was the head of Homeland Security, he met with activists about this challenge. He told them that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is in jeopardy. He said that it is possible that because of the legal challenges from Texas and from the other eight states, the program might be stopped.

 

The problem is that the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is very beneficial. The people on the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program are productive people. They contribute to society. They either work or learn. Some work, while others are in colleges. They work towards advancing their education. This way they can grow up and advance in their career and contribute to the economy. The challenge to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program might stop the whole thing. There are many studies that have been done on this topic. They show clearly how beneficial the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program is to the United States. The Frontera Fund will be on the front lines against the fight to repeal the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals program. They will prove assistance and advice on how to prevent it from happening.

Brazil’s President Temer Is Working On The Country’s Investment Grade According To Bank CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco

Brazil was once an investor’s dream country. Five years ago, Brazil was a big reason the BRICS emerging market union was so successful. BRICS is the acronym for Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa. But now all of those countries, except for India, are struggling to keep their Gross Domestic Product output in the positive column. Brazil’s economy took a major nose dive four years ago, and the economy is still shaky.

But Brazilian banks like Bradesco and Banco Itaú are beginning to show foreign investors that Brazil is back. Bradesco is a Wall Street favorite. One reason Bradesco is getting a lot of attention is the 29 percent year-to-date revenue increase over the same time last year. Luiz Carlos Trabuco is Bradesco’s CEO, and he is one of the men who is making Wall Street pay attention to the bank again.

Brazilian President Michel Temer is reaching out and trying to get Brazil’s investment grade up to a decent number, so more investors feel comfortable with Brazilian companies. There’s no doubt that the 66-year-old Trabuco is going to stay around long enough to keep the bank’s momentum going. After all, Mr. Trabuco is a 37-year banking veteran, and all of those years are Bradesco years. Trabuco cut his banking teeth at Bradesco. He’s been an employee since 1969.

Trabuco is not a typical bank executive. He doesn’t have an accounting or finance degree. He has a post-graduate degree in psychology and an undergraduate degree in philosophy from the University of São Paulo. Trabuco knows how to manage a bank because he went from one banking division to another during his training period. In 2003, Bradesco gave him their insurance division, Banco Seguros to manage. Trabuco was a special kind of president when he was with Seguros. He was the kind of president that gave Bradesco 30 percent of their yearly profits. At the end of 2008, after almost five years of profit increase after profit increase, Trabuco took over as president of Banco Bradesco.

There was no fanfare when Trabuco took over as president. All the bank executives were happy when the news hit the press. Luiz is that kind of manager. Customers and employees know they are in good hands. Trabuco is a bank manager that gives back to the cities through Bradesco branch offices. Bradesco has more than 5,000 branches and thousands of ATMs across the country. Trabuco and his executive team try to keep in touch with all branch employees in one way or another. Not bad for a man who grew up in a small city in the state of São Paulo. Mr. Trabuco may be looking for his replacement, but he is still working long hours to make sure his bank stays in the good graces of Wall Street.

Even though banks profits are better than ever, the country still needs foreign investors to keep the economy moving in the right direction. Brazil’s investment grade was a -470 before Temer, and now the grade is 195. Brazil lost its investment grade in 2015, and according to Temer, he will bring investors back to Brazil. Temer credits his success to labor reforms, more jobs, lower interest rates, and the country’s high school curriculum. Trabuco and other bank presidents know attracting foreign investors depends on things like consumer spending, and more loan money and low inflation.

Bradesco is doing more to make investors aware of the opportunities in Brazil by developing environmental and education programs that help people understand climate change and other issues. The bank also gives students a chance for a better education. Bradesco helps more than 100,000 students every year.

Recap of For The Wild – An Interview with WildArk Founder Mark Hutchinson

A scientific study published this past week strongly warns that we are currently experiencing our planet’s sixth mass extinction event. The Center for Biological Diversity’s website notes “as many as 30 to 50 percent of all species possibly heading toward extinction by mid-century.”[1] The scientific study titled Biological annihilation via the ongoing sixth mass extinction signaled by vertebrate population losses and declines states that the number one culprit is “human overpopulation and continued population growth, and overconsumption, especially by the rich.”[2] WildArk founder Mark “Hutch” Hutchinson hopes to change these potential statistics by preserving, and reconnecting us with, our natural world through conservation and eco-tourism. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/mark-hutchinson-596329121/?ppe=1

 

In a recent interview posted on WildArk’s blog titled For The Wild – An Interview with WildArk Founder Mark Hutchinson [3], Hutchinson discusses his life growing up in the wilds of Australia and spending a year working as a jackaroo in the Northern Territory. He then took an amazing road trip across Africa at age 19 before attending University in Sydney to obtain a Bachelor degree in Economics. He started his first adventure company, UNTAMED, at 22 with the sole purpose of taking travelers to “mother nature’s furthest outposts.” He grew UNTAMED into the eco-tourism company, Avana, which he sold only to see its demise as a publicly traded company.

 

Now, along with his wife, Sophie, and four children, he has created a new business endeavor, WildArk, with one goal – preserving our planet’s precious, natural landscapes and diverse wildlife, while rewilding all of us to the same. “The ultimate goal for Wild Ark is to buy, protect and restore as much high value biodiversity land as possible and build sustainable business on that land for the protection and continuation of those ecosystems.”

 

From Hutchinson’s strong connections with others that share the same love for wildlife, eco-tourism and conservation to his necessity for daily connection to the bush, whether on the northern beaches of Sydney or the African savannah while hosting an eco-tour or eco-training group, we should all take a page from his playbook and start and continue taking part in the conservation of our natural world.

Fabletics is Hoping to Reach Even More Women

Fabletics has always worked hard to make sure that they are providing convenient options for women who want attractive and comfortable athletic wear. This athleisure wear outlook has given Fabletics the chance to be successful with everything that they have done. Their new ventures, while much different from the other things that they have done, have had just as much of a positive impact on the business. Whether they are selling to people directly from their site, on Amazon or even in brick and mortar stores, Fabletics knows the right way to reach all of the women who need workout clothes.

 

As a company that has a big name influencer like Kate Hudson, Fabletics is able to make all of the right moves in the fashion industry. This is not the only thing that they do, though. Kate Hudson wanted to make sure that women felt like they were a part of something that was exclusive as well as something that was convenient. For this reason, the company uses the reverse showroom shopping style and everyone is able to get a chance at the clothes that will work best for them. While visitors are encouraged to take the style quiz no matter where they are buying Fabletics from, it is a necessity to shop on the company’s website.

 

One of the newest options that is available to shoppers is the ability to purchase Fabletics on Amazon. The company did this so that they do not have to compete with other companies for their own business. They also want to make sure that people are able to get their clothing options conveniently and quickly. Amazon provides shoppers with the ability to use their Prime accounts to purchase the Fabletics clothes so that they can get them with the fast shipping options.

 

Even before the introduction of Fabletics to Amazon, they were branching out to other areas. One of the first things that they did to sell their clothing away from their site was create brick and mortar stores. These are small locations that function like a typical store. There, people can learn what their style is, find the clothes that work best for them and even snag some exclusive accessories. While Fabletics is not going to ever leave the online community, having an offline store is just another way that they can provide convenience to all of their customers who shop in different ways.
