Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi: Entrusting Bradescos Leadership To A New Head

Bradesco Bank recently announced that Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi would be going down from his post and he will be replaced by Octavio de Lazari Junior, who served as the vice president of the Bradesco Bank and the president of Bradesco Seguros, one of the financial institution’s subsidiaries.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi wishes Octavio de Lazari Junior good luck, knowing that he would take the company into new heights. Octavio de Lazari Junior will be in charge of the whole operations inside Bradesco Bank, and he wanted to express his gratitude to those who believed in his skills in leading the company. Octavio de Lazari Junior was chosen by the appointment committee of the Bradesco Bank, and they have undergone formal process of choosing the next CEO. They also stated that his selection is based on his background and merit, and he was the most qualified out of all who tried to apply for the position.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will stay as the chairman of the board of executive directors until March 12. After that, he will also have to go down from this post, as the next in line for the position will be revealed after their annual general meeting. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi stated that the selection of Octavio de Lazari Junior followed a strict protocol, and the calendar of schedules had to be followed. He did not elaborate about the process, but assured the public that his successor is a man of integrity, and that he will also do everything that he can to alleviate the ranking of Bradesco Bank and to increase its value and investors.


The announcement of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi going down from his post was announced nationwide through broadcasting corporations. The changes in the leadership of Bradesco Bank are crucial because it is considered as one of the backbones of the Brazilian banking industry. Through the efforts of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, Bradesco Bank managed to become the second largest bank in Brazil, after Banco Itau and Unibanco which have undergone merging back in 2009. The total number of assets that the new CEO of Bradesco Bank would have to manage is a staggering Brazilian $1.3 trillion. He would also need to look after the Brazilian $493 billion worth of credit portfolio.

It will be a challenge for the new head of the Bradesco Bank to lead the company to the top. There should be an open communication between the departments to ensure that everything is in sync with what the company wanted to happen. There are many names which was submitted to become the next leader of the institution, but it was given ultimately to Octavio de Lazari Junior because the company believes that he can emulate the success felt under the leadership of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. Bradesco Bank continues to increase in value, and the addition of HSBC Brazil to their subsidiaries is a testament to the growing power of the company. Bradesco Bank is expected to become the largest bank in Brazil in the near future.

Dick DeVos is a change agent you might not know

When you talk about change agents in the United States, one couple we don’t hear a lot about is Dick and Betsy DeVos. While we do hear about Betsy when it comes to being the Education Secretary, there are still plenty of people who don’t realize the duo have been working to change the way we do things in this country for decades. On occasion, Dick DeVos has been a change agent on a much smaller scale. That was most recently underlined when talking about the way he went about making sure that his hometown of Grand Rapids, Michigan does not get a brand new multi-purpose sports and convention arena north of downtown.


DeVos felt as though this new center was going to draw away from downtown Grand Rapids. The campaign to kill that center made Dick DeVos understand that he had a bit of a calling as a kind of community organizer. His efforts were carried out in a couple of different ways and he’s now credited with helping steer the development of Grand Rapids in a positive way.


Because both he and his wife Betsy are heirs to great family fortunes, they have had the time and the means to spend a lot of their adult lives to being change agents, whether talking about policies or institutions. Because the DeVos’ are also big-time Republican donors, they are people that have managed to make sure that they have a voice in the political process. That work has led to Betsy DeVos being someone who is now the most powerful person in the country when it comes to deciding what direction public education is going to go. Dick DeVos was also appointed to a government agency by President Trump.


DeVos, who has also spent time as a pilot over the course of his life, was appointed to the top civilian panel overseeing the Federal Aviation Administration back in September. The former president of Amway is now starting a brand new chapter in his career. At the same time, he’s doing what he does best. He’ll be someone who can now change the way things are done at the FAA from the inside. That is, of course, the reason why DeVos has been doing what he’s been doing. Changing things from the outside can be done, but it’s certainly easier to do it from the inside.


People like Dick and Betsy DeVos understand that being a change agent of an agency you are overseeing is quite a bit easier than picking up the phone and hoping you can rally enough people to your cause. It should also be pointed out that while some of President Trump’s choices for his cabinet have come under fire for not having experience in the areas they are overseeing. Dick DeVos is certainly someone who understands aviation. He will continue to push his knowledge in a way that he can change what he sees needs to be changed. Now we’ll just wait to see what his next project might be.

Journalist Activists Jim Larkin And Michael Lacey Express Displeasure At President Trump’s Arpaio Pardon

President Trump drew some heavy criticism in the first year of his term for pardoning former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio who was facing indictment for ignoring a federal judge’s order.

This pardoning drew criticisms not only from Democrat party activists and immigration reform groups; it also was slammed by writers at National Review, a conservative-leaning political news journal.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, longtime journalists and known enemies of Arpiao let it known that they thought the justice system needs fixes to hold corrupt law enforcement officials like Arpaio accountable, and they said this pardon was going to further their resolve to fight for justice for immigrants.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey frequently wrote about controversial raids and deportations Arpaio conducted while serving as Sheriff, and their current human rights group the Frontera Fund has taken up initiatives to help impoverished immigrant communities and bring light to what’s really happening in these communities.

They’ve been known critics of Trump’s plans to build the wall and want to see more fair immigration laws passed at both the state and federal levels. The start of Larkin and Lacey’s Frontera Fund came after 40 years in alternative journalism and over 10 years in specific duels with Arpaio.

Michael Lacey grew up in Binghamton, NY and got his love of journalism from publications his father encouraged him to read. He moved out to Arizona to study at Arizona State University, and it was there that he met Jim Larkin, a lifelong native of Arizona who also became interested in independent journalism. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: and

They both actually dropped out of college because their independent newspaper, the Phoenix New Times and its parent company Village Voice Media were gaining attention rapidly.

Their original stories were covering the protests going on during the Vietnam War and seeking to get the truth out about the Kent State shootings. But over the years they started growing the New Times into additional cities and covering topics ranging from political scandals to technology developments. Immigration became a big story in the early 2000s as Arpaio’s office started flexing its muscles.

Around 2004, a Phoenix New Times reporter started gathering information about a potential police corruption case Arpaio was involved in, and Arpaio decided to retaliate by arresting Larkin and Lacey and doing so by using a little-known law. But public opinion turned on Arpaio as a result of this and a district judge subsequently dropped the case against Larkin & Lacey.

They later decided to sue Arpaio’s office for the wrongful arrest, and the $3.75 in settlements they received was used to start the Frontera Fund. Larkin said that when he was young, he was taught that all people matter when talking about compassion and he hopes the Frontera Fund will make a difference in the lives of immigrants.

Robert Ivy: Importance Of Design In Health

According to Robert Ivy architectural design can assist us in solving complex issues in the health sector. Even before we look at the complex issues, there are simple things that we can all relate to. Some benefits can be resolved by using stairs in a building instead of using the elevator. The building occupants are likely to enjoy a better environment with the stairs than the elevator in terms of health benefits. When we are using our bodies our health is boosted. Using elevators means that we are depending on the kinetic energy supplied by the external electrical system instead of our own muscular energy. The human body needs exercise. When we engage in stairs climbing, we are fine tuning the muscles of the body.
Design has much more to human health as well as productivity. Access to natural lighting and fresh air tends to make a person develop a perception that will affect their performance. However, these are the things we assume or we never even know that they are affecting our performance.
Architects are today working on ways they can increase the health benefits that are directly related to design. The intention is to make people live a better and healthy life, sometimes even without knowing. In this 21st century, Robert Ivy is one of the people who is working very hard to ensure that these improvements are realized. We will look at some of the recent design works which are meant to make human being live a healthier life.
In a recent project that was completed in Seattle known as the Seattle Children’s Hospital “Building Hope” expansion, the architects integrated the biophilia in the design work. Biophilia is a name coined by a German psychologist meaning love of life or living systems. Biophilia is used to describe the human attraction to anything that is living. This particular design was important for the children hospital since it creates a sense of humor and playfulness in children and the visitors. There is also use of mural which makes the children imagine and discover things.

Whitney Wolfe Herd The Person Behind the Growth of Bumble

Today, one does not meet their partners in high school or bars. Today, it has become much easier to find their life partners, and that is using technology. Established in 2014, Bumble dating app and revolutionized the way women can find their love partners or best friends. The app, created by Whitney Wolfe Herd, has managed to set itself apart from other dating apps by being devoted to women. The app allows only the women to make the first move or else the connections are dropped. Thus, it gives more power to women to communicate with men on the dating app that they would love to know better. Whitney Wolfe Herd got the idea to create such as app using her own experiences in life. She herself found it hard to approach her crush or to ask them out. She wanted to create an app that allows the women to be in control of her love life.

Bumble was started in a small room with just a few employees, but recently, they moved into their new office and had added more than 60 employees. The new head office of Bumble in Austin, Texas is everything that an employee would want to spend time in. The office is trendy, cool, functional and a reflection of a women-centric company that Bumble is. But, it is not just the interior decoration that speaks for its business culture. The company does not have a set 9 to 5 timings for its employees. They have flexible timings, and the employees choose their own working hours depending on their kid’s schedule or anything else that is important to them. What is essential for the company is that the work is getting done and not when you arrive at the office. Even pets are welcome in the office during the holidays. The office also has a bar and lunches that all employees can enjoy. There is no dress code for the employees, and the employees can wear whatever they are comfortable in.

Whitney Wolfe Herd does not tolerate any abusive language or explicit content on the app making it safe for women. She, however, did not meet her love on the dating app. She met her now husband, Michal Herd, in 2013 and recently got married in a fairytale wedding in Italy in September 2017. She aims to start new projects under her company to help empower women in different fields of life.

” Client Title: “

For more than three decades, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos has been a tireless advocate for educational choice. The prominent businesswoman’s support for individualized learning opportunities that can best meet each individual student’s unique needs began when her own four children were school-aged, and Mrs. DeVos and her husband had the opportunity to spend time at Potter’s House Christian School in Grand Rapids, Michigan.


Potter’s House Christian School


Potter’s House Christian School is an educational venue that serves children between kindergarten and the 12th grade. Its academic programs are firmly grounded in religious principles that support the evolution of youngsters into adults with strong moral beliefs. The school attracts families from many different walks of life, including low-income families for whom paying tuition is a real challenge. How fair was it to force these families to pay taxes that support public schools they weren’t using, Mrs. DeVos wondered? Didn’t that serve to underscore the division between wealthier families who could afford educational choice and less affluent families? Wouldn’t it more just to open up the closed educational system so that all parents had greater choice?


The American Federation for Children


In the early 1990s, Mrs. DeVos began supporting measures on the Michigan ballot that called for changes in K-12 funding. These changes were intended to create more charter schools and to increase opportunities for the types of online learning that provide the backbone for so many home-schooling efforts. Betsy DeVos also launched a political action committee called the Great Lakes Education Project that focused on promulgating educational reform throughout the state of Michigan. She became involved as well with other school-choice organizations such as All Children Matter and the Alliance for School Choice. Taking what she learned from participating in these venues, Betsy DeVos and her husband formed the American Federation for Children in 2010.


The American Federation for Children has seen many successes in the states where it maintains a presence. In Florida, for example, the 501(c)(4) organization helped implement a tax-credit scholarship program that has enabled more than 50,000 students to attend schools their families have specifically chosen for them. The number of Florida students the nonprofit serves grows larger every year. Louisiana and Indiana are other states that have received assistance from the American Federation for Children for the passage of educational choice reforms.


Betsy DeVos does not see educational choice as a strictly partisan issue. She thinks increasing numbers of both Democratic and Republican state legislators are beginning to respond to its appeal. Betsy DeVos believes that educational choice is a rich movement that encompasses digital learning, homeschooling, charter schools an magnet schools as well as vouchers and tax credits.  Learn more:
