It is never too late to start a second career. This is certainly true of 57-year-old Oscar winner Sean Penn. Penn has decided to hang up the director’s hat, retire the actor’s script, and pick up the novelist pen. Earlier this year he debuted a new book, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, a political satire dashed with a fine bit of absurdity. The book follows the exploits of Bob Honey, a septic tank salesman who becomes an assassin. Like all assassin’s Bob Honey has a specific target set, elderly people that he beats to death with a mallet. At his core Honey is a political activist, much like the author, with such a passionate ideology he becomes violent.
His one-man war against geriatrics comes from a desire to lessen the surplus population in favor of environment and social benefit. Penn has gone on record to proclaim Bob Honey’s belief set to be a reflection of his own. He has also stated that the book is a mild evaluation of the current Trump administration. Not surprising. This is Sean Penn we are talking about, and his is well-known for his activism. What surprises many about Bob Honey, is the stance Penn takes towards the #MeToo movement.
Although it is safe to include anti-Trump comments within any form of media, criticism of women’s issues is a no-no. Most tend to refrain from comment, lest they be served to the social media wolves whose fingers always hover above the keys. Penn dives straight in, including a reflection of the #MeToo movement that stretches across six whole pages. In the book Penn compares the movement to a bullying platform built to shame celebs. He states that the movement infantilizes the issue, reducing its scope instead of empowering it. According to him #MeToo is not the movement that will advance women’s rights and reduce sexual harassment. Naturally such comments drew the ire of many, and they have since publicly made that ire known. Penn is not apologizing however, but rather stands by his comments. As for his writing, Bob Honey will not be his last.
Sheldon Lavin, the chairman and chief executive officer of the international food procession firm the OSI Group, is a man of many talents. He has degrees in accounting and finance. He had a very successful career in the banking industry. Lavin also ran his own accounting firm for many years. Plus, he is an investor, philanthropist, caring chief executive and the man behind the OSI Group’s worker, food and environmental safety policies and the architect of the family atmosphere at the global food industry giant. Above all else, Sheldon Lavin is a visionary who sees what is possible and makes it happen.
One example of Sheldon Lavin’s vision is the growth trajectory of the OSI Group. When Lavin first became involved with the company in the 1970s it was a meat processing company called Otto & Sons that provided beef patties for McDonald’s and quality cuts of meat for restaurants and supermarkets in Illinois. But Sheldon Lavin saw the company had potential to be much more. So he bought large amounts of the company’s stock, took control of the company in the 1980s, changed its name to the OSI Group and began executing an expansion plan that now has the company serving customers in 85 countries.
Under Sheldon Lavin’s leadership, the OSI Group has 70 food processing facilities scattered throughout the Americas, Europe, Asia and Australia. Their customer base numbers in the hundreds of millions and the company is praised for its ability to produce foods developed specifically to meet the tastes of customers from a diverse range of cultures. Plus, the OSI Group no longer is just a meat processing company. The company now produces and processes meat, fish, poultry, vegetable and dough products for its steadily growing international customer base. It’s all part of Sheldon Lavin’s vision for the company.
In recognition of his ability to create and fulfill an expansive vision for the OSI Group over the past 40 years, The Vision World Institute based in India recently gave Sheldon Lavin their Global Visionary Award. The award is given to entrepreneurs who not only create an excellent vision for their company’s growth, but who have shown the discipline, determination, creativity and skill over a period of years to make their vision a reality. Sheldon Lavin is the epitome of such a visionary leader. He has transformed a local meat market into a global food service industry juggernaut.

In Heidi Harris’ article “Intellectual Property in the Digital Age, with Kamil Idris on the pitfalls of Globalization”, the author discusses the changes that technology is making to the global trade world. Globalization is changing the rules, and paired with technology, there are pros and cons. While technology is allowing for innovation, it also is exposing a grey area to the ownership of ideas and how to protect them. Intellectual rights are important for protecting innovation, but they also have allowed countries with more power and wealth to secure large amounts of the market. This disparity and lack of regulations, will likely need to be reexamined as technology continues to progress.
DKamil Idris, the former director of the WIPO in Geneva, says that globalization has created a boom in the export markets, and along with this, the number of patents has also skyrocketed. This has opened new doors for intellectual theft, counterfeiting, and piracy. Also, a gap between developing countries and wealthy countries has increased with the allocation of patents. Many countries, mainly in Africa, have fallen behind. Currently the WTO is talking about evolving the laws and practices involving intellectual property in a global scale, and it is likely necessary.
Idris has been important to bringing attention to these issues through the World Intellectual Property Day on the 26th of April. Another agreement is the WIPO copyright agreement, it was drafted in 1887 during the Berne convention, and looked to protect artistic and scientific ideas. Every country that signed it has been obliged to adhere to it, and its likely this agreement should be evolved in the digital age. Another agreement, that is seen as the most comprehensive to date, is the The Agreement of Trade-Related Aspects of Intellectual Property. It looks on protecting property rights, and creating accountability in the world of free trade. In general, according to Idris, technology’s relationship to globalization, may change the paradigm of how we look at free markets and liberalism. New regulations and agreements will be necessary to account for this.
After a reading of Sean Penn’s new novel, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, many readers may want to scratch their head. In fact, some readers didn’t even know what they were reading. The novel was originally released as a slimmer and came out as a very mysterious audio book back in 2016. Sean Penn wrote under the pseudonym Pappy Pariah when releasing the audiobook. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff seems to feature broad references to our current president. The novel features two main characters, Bob and Fletcher. Fletcher is a part time assassin and Bob works a variety of small jobs. Fletcher’s character is said to be very close resembled of El Chapo. Penn is said to have interviewed El Chapo. One of the more notable scenes within Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is said to take place in the aftermath of a five police officer shooting.
The novel really seems to have no plot, just random occurrences. Bob seems to be antisocial and imagines these different scenarios and hates his ex wife. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff seems to be both perplexing and intriguing at the same time. The novel paints of picture of imagination and could possible enlist someone else’s imagination right along with it. Bob seems to have an outburst in the middle of the novel which could only gain some kind of curiosity. The author seems to engage some of himself within Bob and seems to speak directly through the character. Sean Penn seems to have really captured what America has become in the greasy novel, and exposing it. This incoherently seems to be the byproduct of one’s imagination and putting it into writing. Although there isn’t much to truly be desired, the novel does have some climatic spots and can take the reader away for even just a minute.

With the rise of environmental sustainability, consumers have started turning away from bottled water, and many people applaud this considering that plastics are the major pollutants. But Waiakea Water may justify why it is worth all the trouble. The water comes from a naturally alkaline source, very pure and is packed on eco-friendly bottles. The founder of the water company, Ryan Emmons, launched the special Hawaiian volcanic water in 2012 after realizing that the water source is the purest, healthier, and sustainable water in the world.
The first Hawaiian Volcanic Water
The Waiakea water is regarded as the first Hawaiian volcanic water as a result of its naturalized filtration process. The water penetrates through porous volcanic rocks of up to 14,000 feet. The water flows directly from Mauna Lao volcano and unlike other waters, it not collected from a stagnant aquifer. Hawaiians have witnessed the natural process of filtration of the water through the long volcano; thus, the Waiakea water is considered to possess life-altering benefits.
Benefits of the special water
The volcanic water benefits are well known to the consumers. The alkaline water improves health which is based on the idea that taking water with a pH of 8.8 can mitigate cases of acid reflux during physician treatment. Unlike other traditional waters, the Waiakea water aids in the neutralization of stomach acid because of its natural bicarbonate component. In addition, the drinking water aids in the balance of body pH and boost hydration. What makes Waiakea water even more special is its silica content. Due to its pH, the water is able to provide daily recommended silica.
The wonders of Waiakea
Not only do people benefit from Waiakea water pH, but also considered the most durable and tasty water. It had been named by 10 Best Glasses of water as being on the list of the Top Volcanic Bottles Water label. The water contains several minerals including calcium, electrolytes, and magnesium which contribute to the healing of the body and prolonging life. Sourced from the most natural environment, Waiakea waters seem to be magical.
Profits Unlimited is research service by former hedge fund manager Paul Mampilly, one of the rapidly growing newsletters in the investment sector. By mid-2017, it had over 90,000 subscribers. Banyan Hill Publishing publishes it, and its objective is to guide ordinary Americans into making profitable investment choices. He mails out new investment recommendations in an 8-page newsletter to his subscribers each month. On a weekly basis, the Unlimited Profits subscribers receive one or two stocks updates, and Paul Mampilly tracks their investments. In 2017, some of the open portfolio’s stocks were up by 18-38% while stocks of a semiconductor company he recommended in June 2017 are up by 160%. Read this article at weeklyopinion.com.
Regarding Bitcoin and cryptocurrency, Paul holds that the bubble will eventually burst in time. He says that people remain attached to their cryptocurrencies failing to notice the opportune time to sell when the prices pick. When the prices fall, they stay glued to the former higher prices waiting for prices to go up. And when the bubble bursts unexpectedly, they lose their fortunes. He says Bitcoin is rising due to high publicity reports of its prospects.
People retire at 65 years, but Paul Mampilly retired at 45 years due to his smart investments. When people viewed Amazon with skepticism, he saw the potential. He grew Kinetics Asset Management fund from $6 billion to $25 billion with 26% in average returns. During the financial meltdown of 2008, Paul earned $88 million form a $50 million investment in the Templeton Foundation competition winning the award in 2009. Paul Mampilly is hard working evidenced by his work a cafeteria when he was attending SUNY in Albany, and currently, as he researches investment choices for Americans.

He has strongly advised people to invest in precision medicine as the sector will burst into fortunes. Precision medicine will revolutionize the treatment of diseases such as cancer, arthritis among many other conditions since pharmaceutical companies focus on treatment rather than cure them reducing symptoms or delaying disease progression.
With precision medicine, doctors analyze patient’s DNA and specific factor coming up with unique profiles. This kind of data analysis allows physicians to determine patient-specific medical intervention. With the development of patient’s genomic profiles, doctors can prescribe ideal treatments timely. Biotech companies in precision medicine have announced clinical trials while others have announced advanced works on potential innovations. Paul Mampilly in Unlimited Profits Newsletters has promised to name some of the leading firms in precision medicine. By implication, he was referring to Myriad Genetics (MYGN) as one of the firm one should invest in.
There are many articles you are invited to consume today, but how many of them are really worth reading? Can you benefit from them? Will your assets or personality improve by reading such articles? Not really. However, if you read an article about leaders who have been successful in their field, who have done their best, and have received the right and positive clamor of praise from their workforce, then you most likely can learn a thing or two for your business. One of such leaders that you can learn more about today is Luiz Carlos Trabuco, the CEO of Bradesco.
The Leadership That Transcends
Beginners in business can learn from Luiz Carlos Trabuco how to differentiate between different kinds of scale according to Estadao.com.br. There are environments or contexts that it doesn’t really involve a lot of variables, skills, and dynamics. This is what can be described by experts as Mediocristan. What happens here doesn’t scale, and won’t be needing any type of deep unfathomable calculation. In the scale of Extremistan, you would have to need a lot of variables, contexts and different unpredictable elements. Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s leadership in Bradesco is in the Extremistan, and it’s fascinating to know that he knows such set-up and he operates Bradesco with an understanding of one’s limits. With such knowledge, Trabuco is going beyond just words. He really puts the concepts he knows into action by applying the same concepts to the world what he applies to his own company.

The Persistence of The President
It is said that what unites a company is a combination of grit, wisdom, perseverance and a sense of passionate desire to serve the public. Bradesco stands out today because of the belief for such value, and this is also the reason why in 2003, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was awarded by Bradesco as being one of the bank’s most outstanding executive.
Right now, it’s already 38 years of service that Mr. Cappi had given to Bradesco, and such leadership only means that the persistence of Mr. Cappi has been tested and proven by time. It is also notable to say here that the leadership of Mr. Cappi right now is also a byproduct of working for the bank’s different branches, which include marketing and communications.
The market right now is facing a lot of political challenges. There are more risks right now because of the system becoming more centralized and structured in an ominous system. However, with the kind of educational background that people in Bradesco have, it’s not that hard to withstand all these challenges and face them with the most gracious appeal and courage. CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is able to show that despite the challenges and new changes that the company would receive, it will be easier to expect more from Bradesco under his watch.
Moreover, it has also been shown that Mr. Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s educational background at the University of Sao Paulo was such a formative experience to him that it would probably be hard to achieve the level of success he has right now without such academic experience.
