Betsy DeVos Definitely Should not be Ignored

Michigan knows the DeVos family well. The family has fought for change and has achieved it one way or another. Some credit Grand Rapid’s prosperity to this family since they worked hard to keep stadiums out the city and focused on education instead. This is also the family that fought against labor unions.


Betsy DeVos worked hard to give parents in the state power to choose which schools their kids should go to. She championed privately owned schools, such as religious schools that will not be accountable to the government. She does not want the government to make sure kids are getting an education. DeVos believes that parents will take care of that aspect on their own. Needless to say, DeVos was successful in devastating the state’s public education, which made some people happy.


Trump must have seen these changes and loved them because he named her the Secretary of Education for the United States. Champions of public education around the nation began to feel skeptical about this choice because it seemed that this woman did not care about public education. It seems that her focus is only on helping parents have more choices. There was no doubt that some people feared her but this ended during her congressional hearing.


She was asked a number of questions about public education that made it clear that she was wrong for the job. Still, what made matters worse was her answer about guns in schools. She told congress and the nation that she believes schools should have weapons to fend off grizzly bears. Out of all the issues schools have to worry about, grizzly bears is simply not one of them yet there was Betsy, talking about kid-crazy grizzly bears.


Many people laughed at her, including Late Night TV hosts, and some even dismissed her because they believed she was simply dim-witted. This is something Mike Cox, a former secretary of state for Michigan and republican warns against. Cox points out that DeVos is someone that should not be dismissed. Yes, she is definitely inexperienced, but Cox says that she is a quick learner, and she is not afraid of using her money to fight for her beliefs.


There is no telling how much change DeVos wants to bring to this country, but it seems that Trump is willing to gamble US education on this woman, and his supporters couldn’t be happier.

An Overview Of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s Involvement In The Banking Sphere

Much like any prestigious businessman, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi came by his successes honestly, honorably, and wholeheartedly. The company to which he owes his triumphs is Banco Bradesco.

Banco Bradesco, an illustrious financial service located in the heart of Brazil, wasn’t always a prominent name in the banking field. Under Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s guidance, Banco Bradesco soon found success. Cappi’s allegiance to Banco Bradesco began in 1969, at which time Cappi served as a bank teller. Though still an honorable title, Cappi’s aspirations extended far beyond the realm of bank telling.

After 15 years of displaying his hard-working nature, Cappi graduated to the head of Bradesco’s Seguros branch. No doubt an advantageous transition in roles, Cappi’s future at the company looked favorable and full of promise. Cappi’s new position required him to govern the complexities of Banco Bradesco’s financial affairs. Let it be known that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi executed his duties flawlessly, even increasing the company’s profits from 26 to 35 percent. After Cappi acquired a taste for leadership, his skills as an authority figure improved considerably. In fact, the rate at which he was excelling prompted Banco Bradesco to promote Cappi to Director of Marketing.

As the exemplar of a pioneering businessman, Cappi accepted this role with great enthusiasm, using it as an opportunity to apply some ultramodern practices he’d learned in Seguros. Upon flexing his enterprising muscles, Cappi’s efforts sparked an outpouring of success. In fact, the segmenting and targeting techniques he implemented boosted consumer engagement and maximized profits. Having created the optimal business model, Cappi set Banco Bradesco up for long-lived prosperity and eminence. Upon realizing this, Banco Bradesco honored Cappi for his noble deeds and offered him a position as the company’s CEO.

Not surprisingly, Cappi leaped at the opportunity to become an integral member of the industry he’d dedicated 40 years of his career to. Unfortunately, a series of stumbling blocks ensued, but they proved no match for Cappi and his profound wisdom. In October of 2017, Lazaro Brandao, the president of Banco Bradesco, retired, allowing Cappi to fulfill his lifelong dream of propelling to the forefront of his industry. Banco Bradesco continues to benefit from Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi’s intimate knowledge of the industry, and Cappi has no intentions of slowing down either.

Michael Phelps Teams With Talkspace and Shares His Story

One of the issues that people have when they are dealing with mental health issues is that they are often made to believe that they are the only ones that are dealing with their issues. They are also made to believe that they need some kind of success and status in order to be able to overcome their mental health issue. However, there are people in all walks of life that struggle with depression and anxiety. One such person is professional athlete Michael Phelps. He’s had struggles with mental health, and he has come through with the help of therapy.

Therapy is something that is very helpful for people who deal with mental health issues. The only thing is that therapy has been set up for the longest time in ways that people are going to have to go out of their way and interrupt their workday for it. Another thing that can get in their way of getting therapy is the huge costs. A lot of people do not make a fortune with the type of work they do, and they have tons of expenses that they have to take care of. On top of that, they don’t have the insurance that can help pay for these expenses.

Fortunately, Talkspace offers people alternatives when it comes to therapy. People can get therapy while they are at their workplace. They don’t have to leave the office and drive through traffic to get to their office. One thing they can do is take a lunch hour and go to their therapy session from their phones. The best part is that they don’t have to pay as much as they would when they go to an office to talk to their therapist. They can get some of the best insights from their therapist.

Because of the internet and technology you can do this from anywhere in the world at all times in the world.


This option to live an abundant, joy filled life also permits everyone an option to start out as a mini philanthropist. Setting aside a portion of your time and or money as contribution into the enhancement of life circumstances for another has always been found to benefit all involved. To this end the team at Sightsavers also pursues the advancement of gender equality specifically raising awareness and demanding behavioral change of individuals, families, businesses and governmental leaders toward their treatment of the female human species, the fully and the differently abled. Through education that promotes experiences that challenge demented thinking and traditional suppression regarding women and girls, Sightsavers aims to upend the status quo such that communities and nations may grow and bring to fruition ideas of the world’s Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).


Graeme Robertson contributes to Sightsavers through his online presentation of his professional photography of the daily life activities of women, men and children who face challenges concerning eye health and/or other mental, physical or emotional disabilities. AquAid is an establishment that provides funding. Mirriam is a Mom and physiotherapist in and of Malawi who donated a portion of her own land and ideas for the development of The Dawn Centre that treats her son and others like him who suffer from the challenges brought on by cerebral malaria and physical disabilities.

The full opportunity to enhance the lives of everyone involved remains central to Sightsavers’ underlying cause. The institutional sponsorers, individual contributors and recipients enjoy the moments shared of the tangible life differences their thoughtfulness makes possible. By uniting these various levels of participation, Sighsavers garners the cascading of leadership, advocacy and empowerment toward a tsunami wave of continued and progressive change. This angle of attack provokes the challenge of everybody’s perspective towards women and the disabled such that acts concerning family leaves and accessibility for the disabled will continue to develop with global cultural and local quotidian relevance.

Kamil Idris Warns That We Might Be on the Verge of WWIII

Both the JASTA act and Dr. Kamil Idris have been in the news quite a bit in recent months. This is hardly anything new for Dr. Idris in a general sense. As the former Director-General of the UN’s WIPO he had the world at this fingertips. And this has continued to the present day thanks to his position as President of the International Court of Arbitration and Mediation. In fact, it’s in his role at ICAM that one piece of information carries even more weight.

He’s bringing additional attention to something called the JASTA act. This acronym refers to the Justice Against Sponsors of Terrorism Act. This act had been vetoed by President Obama. But it still managed to pass in 2016. Dr. Kamil Idris warns that this can be seen as a direct challenge to a country’s overall autonomy.

In and of itself this would be a worrisome concept. But as Professor Idris points out in his recent book, the conditions paint a dark mirror of World War 1. His book, JASTA and a third world war, presents an argument that anyone should find sobering.

One of the larger comparisons to World War 1 comes from the idea of national sovereignty. This refers to the basic idea that a country can set rules and laws for the people within it. The import of this might be better seen by considering the nature of democracy. To borrow a line, it’s the idea of a country being run by the people and for the people.

Having another country set rules and laws for democracies is usually seen as a direct attack against their autonomy or personal freedoms. This is one of the larger issues related to World War 1’s genesis. The overall reasons for different countries inclusion tends to be complicated. But the largest reason usually relates to autonomy.

Dr. Idris writes both book and warning from a unique position. He’s one of the few people out there who has a clear view of history and modern politics. Dr. Idris has had a chance to actually consider the direct emotions of the world leaders he’s worked with. And when he writes about potential dangers of war, one should give it careful consideration.

He is among the first American children from Japanese parents, and this has resulted in challenging in language. During the 1970s and 1980s, computers were not easy to come by making it difficult for Saito to access them for experimenting. However, his parents took a second mortgage of $5000 and purchased an IBM computer for William that was fully installed with the latest technology.

Typically one of the lessons from the article is that with passion and discipline everything is possible.

Adam Milstein On the Rise of the Jewish Diaspora’s Next Leaders

Adam Milstein has been a long and vocal supporter of his homeland, even though he left Israel in 1981, he has continued to champion his people ever since. He maintains an online presence with his writing at the Times of Israel to support his work as a co-founder of the Adam and Gila Milstein Family Foundation. The foundation works endlessly to support pro-Israeli organizations like the Israeli-American Council (IAC), among many others.

As a member of the Jewish Diaspora, Adam Milstein is marshaling his resources to tackle the big issues facing the global, Jewish population. For Milstein, the ultimate challenge is the The Boycott, Divestment and Sanctions (BDS) campaign. The campaign threatens to tear apart the Jewish community around the world, but particularly amongst American Jews, and ultimately, perhaps, destroy Israel all together.

Adam Milstein, though, is hopeful that the time has come for the next generation of Zionist leaders to step into the light, leading the charge against antisemitism, and building support for Jews across America,Israel, and the world. In his daily work, Adam Milstein sees the passion and drive in the young people, returning from their Birthright journey to the homeland with a deeper understanding of and connection to their long and tumultuous history. The hope, Milstein believes, is all around, rising in an activist generation that is bringing a message of connectivity to the Israeli-American Council, and flourishing amongst the teenage members of pro-Israel youth groups, like Tzofim and B’nei Akiva.

Adam Milstein encourages his generation, back in the homeland and from the Diaspora, to give these new voices an outlet, and a foundation, that connects the history of the Jewish people to the struggles the community still faces. Amongst these hopeful teenagers and young people, just now discovering the pride and connection with their Jewish homeland, Milstein believes the future of the movement may reside, and the next Golda Meir or David Ben-Gurion will rise.
