Eucatex: Bringing Brazilian Gold Since the 50’s

Eucatex is one of Brazil’s biggest success stories. A company based on the idea production can take place while making small impact on the Earth turned into big profits for the Malufs, the company who has helmed Eucatex since the beginning.

Formed in 1951, Eucatex was created as a ceiling tile plant but with a twist. The family behind Eucatex believed that their products would benefit from using the eucalyptus tree as the key ingredient to their product.

Eucatex hoped this would lower their carbon footprint while creating an acoustic rich tile. Such ideas proved successful and it was not long after that Eucatex established offices in Buenos Aires. In time the company would ship to over 50 countries and create plants throughout South America. Recently, Eucatex is working a new line of paints while working on a new forestry leasing program.

Born in 1967, Flavio became part of a long line of successful entrepreneurs and innovators. As a mechanical engineering graduate from Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) Flavio Maluf kept to the high standards of his family and the ideals used to establish Eucatex. Flavio spent time abroad, studying business at New York University before returning home to Brazil.

Flavio began his time in the family business as part of the production division. After some time he moved through the sectors of Eucatex before gaining an executive position in the late 90’s. It would be just under a year later that Flavio would gain the title of president. It is through his innovation that Eucatex has been able to continue the trends of small environmental impact and business expansions and growing profits.

Small carbon footprints and big gains might have been unheard of decades ago. But for Eucatex and the Malufs, sticking to such goals proved beneficial and helped the company expand past the borders of its native Brazil. More products being added to the catalog and more plants opening, Eucatex is proof an industrial group can make big bucks while being green friendly.  Flavio continues his message of securing the future for new entrepreneurs, and echoes those points on Twitter.

Ultra Savings on Cell Service Through FreedomPop

If you are looking for an inexpensive alternative to regular cell phone carriers, take a look at FreedomPop. This nifty app can rid you of fee-laden service plans of common cell phone companies. It can be used as a free service or you can upgrade to some very low-cost options. Currently, they support all versions of Android OS up to 4.4.4 – (KitKat). They also have Android 5.0 (Lollipop) support coming soon.

FreedomPop has three basic plans. First and foremost is their Free Service which provides you with 200 voice minutes, 500 text messages, and 500 MB of data. The service is all done through VOIP so they can take advantage of the data portion of the Sprint network without hassling with their text and phone streams. This particular plan also works on FreedomPop Wi-Fi hotspots which get 500 MB of data free each month.

The second is an extremely affordable option to upgrade to FreedomPop’s $5 plan. This plan uses WIFI HotSpots instead of cell towers to make your text, phone and data connections. It won’t work while driving or out in a rural area with no HotSpots. But it could be a great plan for kids or anyone who lives in a metropolitan area full of WIFI connections.

Third is the very popular Unlimited Plan. This gives the unlimited text, talk, and data for $19.99 a month. Compared to most current cell phone carriers that is a steal.

FreedomPop uses the Sprint network to provide their coverage, so anywhere that Sprint or Virgin Mobile or Boost have coverage, FreedomPop does too.

Another advantage to FreedomPop is that they offer devices that you can purchase with their service. You can also bring your own Sprint mobile device. They are constantly increasing the number of devices that are compatible.

We’re not just talking about cell phones here either. FreedomPop is available for phones, tablets, and even home internet coverage. Mobile devices have a range of prices so check out the app, for details but currently, there are six tablets for purchase with the FreedomPop service. These tablets include the iPad Mini, the Samsung Galaxy Tab 3, the Galaxy Tab 4, the LG G Pad and the Freedom Tab Liberty.

Last, of all, you can now get your home internet through FreedomPop. They provide several different plans for this service as well. Areas that have 4G LTE coverage can be used for home internet by buying a Hub Burst it connects to the LTE network and gives you 12/Mbps internet service. That’s pretty standard DSL service which is pretty great considering that 1 GB per month is free.

Check out The FreedomPop App and this review to find out more.

ClassDojo’s Popularity is on the Rise and the Company is Significantly Growing

ClassDojo is an education app that is growing by leaps and bounds. The app was founded in 2011 by two former teachers and entrepreneurs named Liam Don and Sam Chaudhary. ClassDojo was created to help teachers to maintain order in the classroom.

The app works off of the premise that students do better when they are given positive feedback instead of criticism. Apparently, Don and Chaudhary got it right because a lot of teachers and parents are satisfied with how the app works.

So, how does ClassDojo work? Well, this application can be downloaded from an app store. It appears on the major platforms such as Google Play, The Apple Store and the Microsoft Store. After a person downloads the app, they can then set up their profile to send and receive information from other ClassDojo users.

Parents can use the app to communicate with teachers. To have meetings throughout the day and to monitor their child’s progress while they are in the classroom. Teachers find the ClassDojo application favorable because they can use it to send pictures about students, upload videos of a child’s behavior or send texts back forth with parents. The app even makes parent/teacher conferences a lot easier. This is a great plus for many educators because they often complain about the lack of parental involvement in their child’s lives.

At least 500,000 people download ClassDojo every day. Currently, there are close to 10 million users to date. The company makes it revenue from the app by offering specialized and advance services such as a customized yearbook, specific lessons for various subjects and homework plans for students. Remember, the content that is being offered on this app can be adjusted for grade levels K to 12. This way, the content is being directed at the group of people that it was created for.

George Soros’ Take on the Political Situation in Ukraine

Billionaire investor and philanthropist, George Soros, reveals his political views on the European Union and what should be done to help the new Ukraine that emerged in 2014. According to Soros, the EU has become efficient at juggling one crisis after another without really dealing with the real issue behind these crises. This has created a situation whereby these crises come back to haunt the union in future. As of 2015, the EU faced 5 major crises; the euro, migration, the Greek economic crisis, the British referendum and the situation in Ukraine.

Although all five crises cannot be dealt with at once, at least not decisively, George Soros holds the view that the Ukrainian situation should be given top priority. This is despite the fact that Ukraine is not a part of the European Union. However, it presents a perfect situation to resist the continued Russian aggression in Ukraine and deal the nuclear power a huge international blow. In addition, it allows the EU to uphold its initial values and spirit of solidarity envisioned during its formation.

Soros feels that he is deeply invested in the affairs of the new Ukraine through his Ukrainian Foundation and personal involvement in the country. This led him to develop a new winning strategy for the country and circulate it throughout Europe. According to the businessman, Russian sanctions are necessary but not enough. This is because the Russian leader, Vladimir Putin, could easily argue that all the Russian woes are borne out of these sanctions. This increases his favor in Russia. Therefore, the only way to beat Putin and his political ideas is by effectively proving him wrong.

How to Effectively Aid Ukraine

Soros advocates for the continued financial support of Ukraine. This would allow the country effectively resist the Russian onslaught on every level be it military, political or economic. Empowering Ukraine would allow it to sustain itself and its new radical reforms that have introduced democracy, political inclusion of the citizens in all decision making processes and economic reforms. It also allows the country to introduce independent and honest media and judiciary systems.

The fact that Putin is willing to start a large-scale war over Ukraine has given him power and tactical advantage to dictate his will over the sovereign state. This is because the western allies are unwilling to start any direct military conflict with the nuclear power. For Ukraine to succeed, the west must be willing to provide the country with enough economic support while at the same time impose heavy restrictions on Russia. They must also abolish the Minsk agreement.

Although Ukraine cannot immediately regain its territorial integrity, it can still uphold its political and moral integrity. The fact that it is willing to take radical political and economic reforms should be enough to warrant help from the international community. With help from the EU, Ukraine could be a beacon of hope in a largely socialist region. The EU should not repeat the same economic mistakes it did when handling the Greek economic crisis.
