Quando achamos que estamos "atuando" em favor de alguém, estamos, sim, é atuando em nosso íntimo favor.

GBTA Foundation Continues to Forecast Double Digit Growth for Brazil's Business Travel Spend in 2014 Brazil Moves Up to 8th Largest Business Travel Market in the World, Poised for Continued Growth The GBTA Foundation, the education and research arm of the Global Business Travel Association (GBTA) - announces the results of its latest GBTA BTI(TM) Outlook - Brazil report, a semi-annual business travel outlook and overall economic analysis of Brazil. The report, sponsored by Visa Inc., includes the GBTA BTI(TM); an index of business travel spending that distills market performance over a period of time. Key highlights of the report include: Despite two quarters of weaker economic growth in 2013, GBTA projects total spending on business travel will grow 12.5 percent in 2014 to $37 billion USD,

and another 5.9 percent in the once-charging in 2015.

"This forecast tellsa story of continuing positive growth in Brazil despite recent volatility," said Wellington Costa, president of GBTA Brazil. "The encouraging turnaround for international outbound business travel spending paired with expected domestic growth as well shows suppliers and travel managers that Brazil is a key market to be in for businesses expanding globally." "With the forecast for increased business travel to and from Brazil, travel will continue to be an important sector of the Brazilian economy," said Percival Jatoba, Vice President of Products of Visa Brazil. "Visa is committed to providing a secure, glo-

bally accepted payment option for business travelers, a vital step toward economic growth." Infrastructure Growth Moving Forward With World Cup and Summer Olympics Looming Brazil continues its race to expand infrastructure, particularly transportation infrastructure, as the country prepares to host the World Cup later this year and the Summer Olympics in 2016. In the World Economic Forum's 2012-2013 Global Competitiveness report, Brazil ranked 107 out of 144 countries for quality of infrastructure falling three spots from the previous year. Brazil seeks major improvement including modernization of ports, the expansion of

airports and the repair of crumbling highways, and is attempting to meet these challenges through privatization. While it will be a challenge to complete these projects in time for the World Cup, these efforts should have significant impacts on trade and business travel in Brazil over the next decade. World Cup Impact on Business Travel. Travel managers who already have arrangements in place for travel during the World Cup are in a good position. Those looking to make arrangements during that timeframe should act quickly as it's possible they could face higher prices and limited availability as the event nears.

"Essa previsão revela a história de um crescimento positivo do Brasil, apesar da volatilidade recente", disse o presidente da GBTA Brasil, Wellington Costa. "A reviravolta encorajadora nos dispêndios com viagens de negócios internacionais e o crescimento doméstico esperado mostram aos fornecedores e aos administradores de viagens que o Brasil é um mercado essencial para se estar, para se expandir os negócios globalmente", afirmou. "Com a previsão do aumento das viagens de negócios do Brasil e para o Brasil, o setor de viagens continuará a ser importante para a economia brasileira", disse o vice-presidente de Produtos da Visa Brasil, Percival Jatobá. "A Visa Brasil se compromete a fornecer opção de pagamento segura, mundialmente aceitá-

vel, aos viajantes de negócios, um passo vital para o crescimento econômico", afirmou. O crescimento da infraestrutura está avançando com a Copa do Mundo e os Jogos Olímpicos se aproximando O Brasil continua em sua corrida para expandir sua infraestrutura, particularmente a infraestrutura de transporte, conforme o país se prepara para sediar a Copa do Mundo em junho e julho deste ano e os Jogos Olímpicos em 2016. No relatório sobre Competitividade Global no Fórum Econômico Mundial de 2012-2013, o Brasil se classificou em 107o lugar, entre 144 países, em qualidade da infraestrutura, caindo três lugares em comparação ao ano anterior. O Brasil está promovendo melhoras importantes, incluindo mo-

dernização dos portos, a expansão dos aeroportos e o reparo de suas rodovias ruins, e está tentando resolver esses problemas através da privatização. Embora seja um desafio concluir esses projetos a tempo para a Copa do Mundo, esses esforços devem ter impactos significativos no comércio e nas viagens de negócios no Brasil, na próxima década. Impacto da Copa do Mundo nas viagens de negócios Os administradores de viagem, que já se prepararam para lidar com viagens de negócios durante a Copa do Mundo, estão em uma boa posição. Aqueles que ainda pretendem se preparar para tirar proveito do evento devem se apressar, porque podem ter de enfrentar preços mais altos e disponibilidade limitada, conforme a Copa se aproxima.

Gilson Rodrigues, owner at Vittorio’s Restaurant and Gilson’s Restaurant his newest venue, hosted a large group of Brazilian Entrepreneurs from Ceara’-Brazil in Early April. They have travelled from Brazil to the USA to learn more about business and visited Apple and Harley Davidson where they watched videos about the Companies and they had the opportunity to listen to Gilson’s History and experience as a valuable lesson. They were a great group of people, avid to hear and learn everything they could, information about the Restaurant Business and his lifetime journey as a Business Man. In his story Gilson tells about his arrival to the USA at age 20, his will to work hard and catch his dream.

Anyone can dream but not everyone finds a way to catch their dream, and this is a fundamental difference. You must be willing to work hard, and conquer all challenges, become legal, and be tireless. He believes the first part is to

become legalized in order to get where you need to be and to achieve success. The immigration process is hard and expensive, requires a lot, then after this first step be able to open your business, establish your brand and work harder. Gilson believes that his success comes from his large experience, his ability to listen to his clients, and never refuse a customer. His doors are always open, to friends, dedicated employees and clients. His secret is dedication and vision. He spoke about the process of building Gilson’s, his ultimate dream, and how important it was to use his own experience and self-confidence. Many questions were asked, all about the structure, financial structure and employees profiling used to hire the right person, salary range etc. You could see they were interested to learn and maybe invest in Orlando in the near future. Gilson was applauded many times, his story is inspiring, encouraging, and invites people to dream like he did. It was a great opportunity and we all learn a lot from him.

The meeting in Orlando was conducted in the Rotary Club Brazil Orlando Office, and it had the main purpose of meet and cause awareness about the Council’s mission and purpose. The most important aspect of this meeting was to make it clear that both The Consulate and the Council want to facilitate the interaction between the Brazilian Community and them, in order to present solutions to many of the problems that Brazilian Citizens have and find it difficult to solve.

that will really bring their questions to the table and will try to solve them without a political agenda. The choice to bring some community leaders to the council, gives a re-enforcement to the theory that these leaders will be able to fight for their community.

BIBA Comes to America !

THE BEST SURPRISE OF THE NIGHT !


We had a weekend to remember in Orlando ! Saturday with a great event at Gilson’s -The CFBACC First Annual Feijoada, on Sunday the Superstation Dinner at Nelore Steakhouse in Winter Park, and what could top that all with a cherry?! A surprise that Superstation imported from Brazil, The BIBA! A BIBA do Faustão! A business meeting, where everyone is paying attention, serious, looking at all the great news and Yara says, let’s Bring outthe BiBA! At a first moment I am thinking, who could it be, because away from Brazil for so long, I don’t follow the shows and new trends in Brazil, but believe me it caused an impact! Biba is a character created by comedian Amadeu Maya, originally from Ceara’-Brazil. Amadeu has passed by major TV Networks in the past, and it is well known, but now he found his home at Globo Tv-Brazil and every Sunday makes his presence at Domingão do Faustão, a very popular show among Brazilians. At the first moment everyone was kind of in chock from the

unexpected arrival, of a guy dressed all in pink! But after a few seconds he just broke the ice, and from there was all laugh! All of us, the audience, we were just waiting for more, but he had to go, the show was coming to an end. It was wonderful! BiBA Rocks and made us all remember how good it is to laugh at things in our own language. I asked Amadeu the creator and impersonator of BiBA, how did he find her, and he said she found Me! And it is a great persona! BiBA is happy, funny, and she is not afraid to be who she is! She was the light of the party and we hope she comes back soon, to make us all laugh till we drop! BIBA Conquered Orlando!

Mayor Teresa Jacobs joins Merlin Entertainments in Unveiling Major Expansion Plans in Orlando Mayor Jacobs is joined by District 6 Commissioner Moore Russell, U.S. Vice President of Merlin Entertainments Adrian Jones, Visit Florida Chief Marketing Officer Paul Phipps, Unicorp President Chuck Whittall, and Visit Orlando Chief Marketing Officer Danielle Courtenay. The event providedan early look at the $200 million project now under construction on International Drive. Merlin Entertainments also announced the official project name, I-Drive 360, and its targeted opening date of spring 2015. I-Drive 360 will be home to three headlining attractions—the Orlando Eye observation wheel, Madame Tussauds Orlando Wax Museum and the Sea Life Orlando Aquarium. “This is another great day for Central Florida. In addition to the incredible economic and job creation impact of I-Drive 360, this new entertainment complex will provide visitors and residents alike with world-class entertainment and dining amenities,” said Mayor Jacobs. “The presence of this project will help Orlando maintain its status as a premier global destination.”

I-Drive 360 is being developed by Orlando-based Unicorp National Developments Inc. and New York-based Circle Entertainment Inc. The project will feature several attractions, shops and eateries, including Central Florida’s first Yard House, which opens on April 24. Other I-Drive 360 details include: • The Orlando Eye, constructed by a Swiss company, will be the tallest observation wheel on the East Coast and will be the centerpiece of the I-Drive 360 complex.

According to Unicorp President Chuck Whittall, the proj-

ect could be ready for a grand opening in March 2015. • I-Drive 360 will afford the corridor with a new venue for large, open-air events.

Additionally, a shuttle that currently takes guests from the Orlando Premium Outlets-International Drive will later move to the I-Drive 360 site behind the Orlando Eye, offering guests in the convention area an opportunity to add that experience to their trip.


Lone Sailor Memorial Honors Orange County’s Military and Veterans


Orange County Mayor Teresa Jacobs recently joined citizens in honoring veterans and active military personnel at the Lone Sailor Navy Memorial Groundbreaking Ceremony and the Central Florida Navy League of the United States Annual Wounded Warrior Walk, Run, and Roll at Blue Jacket Park. “As the former site of the legendary Naval Training Center, it is fitting that we now have a memorial to honor the courage and patriotic service of the thousands of young men and women who called Orange County home during their military training,” said Mayor Jacobs. “This is a way of making sure that every service man or woman that is serving today knows how much we appreciate their devotion to our country.”


Mayor Jacobs was also joined by Congressman Daniel Webster, Congressman John Mica, District 4 Commissioner Jennifer Thompson, City of Orlando Commissioner Robert Stuart, other elected officials and community leaders in the groundbreaking of the new Lone Sailor Memorial. The monument is the 14th Lone Sailor Memorial in the nation and the first to be placed on former Navy property. It memorializes Orlando's Naval Training Center which was used for enlisted recruits from 1965 through 1995. More than 650,000 sailors trained at the facility, which brought in more than $500 million to Orlando’s economy, according to the Central Florida Navy League.

The Lone Sailor statue, created by Stanley Bleifeld who is the U.S. Navy Memorial's official sculptor, will contain two pieces – the Sailor, who stands 7 feet tall and weighs approximately 1,000 pounds, and his sea bag and cleat weighing 700 pounds. As part of the casting process, the bronze for the Lone Sailor will be mixed with artifacts from eight U.S. Navy ships provided by the curator for the Navy in the Naval Historical Center of the Washington Navy Yard. The monument of the Lone Sailor will serve as a reminder of the Navy’s presence in Central Florida, as well as an inspiration to those who are currently serving and will serve in the United States Navy.

Soco Freire

Uma Viagem Pelas Cores

.


Por Edmundo Cavalcanti


Esta jovem artista brasileira, hoje radicada em Orlando na Florida, finalmente tem seu talento reconhecido, e nos traz muita alegria e satisfação, ela acaba de ser premiada como melhor Artes Visuais - USA pelo Brazilian International Press Awards 2014, o maior evento Brasileiro de artes e cultura fora do Brasil, estando ao lado agora de consagrados artistas brasileiros. Soco Freire começou sua carreira como artista plástica em 1996. Nascidana cidade João Pessoa, Brasil vivendo atualmente na Florida, EUA. Desde criança Soco adorava desenhar. Sempre muito curiosa,logo cedo Soco passou a experimentar o mundo das cores.

"

Eu comecei a experimentar a arte em idade precoce, sentada ao lado do meu pai Pedro Martins, desenhista gráfico.

O amor de meu pai pela arte me inspirou, enchendo minha

imaginação com cores e formas. Eu queria aprender, a explorar esse mundo novo e surpreendente onde a realidade e a abstração se misturam. Refinando minha arte, tornou-se natural usar as minhas mãos e tubos de tinta ao invés de pincéis. Adicionei textura e diversas técnicas mistas para trazer cores e movimentos para o meu trabalho artístico".


Eu sempre mostrei uma paixão pela arte desde jovem e hoje minha arte é um reflexo de um mundo dos meus olhos, pelas lentes de Soco Freire. Este é um mundo cheio de cores. É um mundo cheio de positividade e alegria e é isso que eu quero que as pessoas sintam quando veem meu trabalho artístico. Isso é o que amo fazer, com cores trazer vida as minhas telas..." A ênfase de Soco Freire na cor atinge um amplo sentido de emotividade e um dinamismo surpreendente concomitante com os performativos aspectos de seu trabalho criativo. Soco apresenta seus trabalhos em exposições, Galerias e Live Paintings onde ela cria, desenha e pinta tela ao vivo durante o evento. Dia após dia, testando e experimentando novas técnicas e aprendendo

com outros artistas, nós podemos esperar muito por vim desta artista. Seu trabalho já conquistou amantes das artes em Islândia, Ilhas Cayman, Franca, Alemanha, Chile, Estados Unidos e Brasil.

Soco Freire

“Meu trabalho é uma declaração de amor”. O amor à arte, o amor pela vida, o amor por todas as coisas. Eu uso minha arte como um meio de expressar a amplitude das minhas emoções... eu consigo colocar todas minhas emoções

Naz O Planeta só precisa de olhos que sintam com o coração Por Suzana Jardim

Fotografo José Pinto


zaré Como se deu inicio da fotografia na sua vida? Foi na minha adolescência que comecei a interessar-me pela fotografia, primeiro para registar alguns "momentos" da minha vida e depois como necessidade de expressar a minha visão do mundo e exprimir alguns sentimentos.

Com é lidar com a emoção da situação, com a técnica da fotografia? A emoção da situação é o ponto central e é a minha prioridade no momento da captação da imagem. A técnica como o domínio da luz o enquadramento e outras opções técnicas são fundamentais mas devem ser inatas, não devem interfer-

ir com o "feeling" da captação do momento. A técnica está ao serviço da emoção. Suas fotos tem sido reconhecidas no mundo todo em que contexto? A versatilidade é uma característica do meu trabalho. No entanto nos últimos tempos o tema “Nazaré e o surf das grandes ondas” têm-me dado alguma visibilidade depois da publicação na mídia” e em websites, como o “Billabong” “ The Inertia” “The Rider Post” e o “The Daily Mirrow” entre outros. No entanto o reconhecimento é apenas uma consequência agradável do meu trabalho.


Quais os momentos que lhe deram mais satisfação em documentar? Todos os momentos podem ser emocionantes. As vezes um simples motivo natural é o que me dá mais prazer em fotografar. Mas reconheço que a captação de um surfista a dominar uma onda de 30 metros foi mito emocionante. Quais exactamente dos elementos água, ar, fogo, terra, mundo animal e humano... Todos estes elementos me motivam, porque todos podem ter um motivo belo e oculto a explorar. Neste momento aquele que mais fotografo é a água. Mas digamos que um belo cenário pode ser uma uma praia, com um por do sol sobe o oceano com alguns elementos animais é o reunir de todos estes elementos. José Pinto jppinto.50@gmail.com


The Planet needs Eyes that feel For The Heart! Suzana Jardim How was the beginning of photography in your life? It was in my teens I started to become interested in photography, first to register a few " moments " of my life and then as the need to express my vision of the world and express some feelings . How is to deal with the emotion of the moment, and with the technique of photography at the same time? The emotion of the situation is the focal point and is my priority at the moment of capturing the image. Technique, the mastery of light framing and other technical options are critical but should be innate, should not interfere with the " feeling" capture the moment. The technique is at the service of emotion.

What are the moments that gave you the most satisfaction in documenting ? Every moment can be exciting. Sometimes a simple natural reason is what gives me more pleasure in photographing. But I recognize that the capture of a surfer to dominate a wave of 30 meters is an exciting myth.

What exactly are the elements water, air , fire, earth , animal and human world ... All these elements motivate me, because everyone can have a beautiful and explore the hidden motive.

The Story In 1999, WaterCar started as a personal challenge to build the world’s fastest amphibious vehicle. Our early WaterCars were purpose-built vehicles, to be very fast on both land and water. After January, 2010, when Watercar established the Guinness amphibious speed record with the Python model, their attention turned to reliability and they began designing a vehicle to offer to the public.

During the development years, theywere continuously approached by people around the world who wished to purchase a WaterCar. While theywere flattered by the apparent market acceptance, it was not felt that they attained a level of reliability and maintainability consistent with their personal standards and those of many prospective buyers. It was difficult to say no for all those years, but the team was adamant that they would not sell a product that they would not purchase themselves.

Nessa manha Peron percorreu a Rua Florida, cercado por atrizes que agitavam os cofrinhos e pediam "Um trocado para os órfãos de San Juan, por favor" Evita no frescor dos seus 24 anos estava entre elas, ainda de cabelos escuros e pálida, porem tao ardente no seu pregão que o Coronel de 48 anos a notou. O encontro decisivo, porem, aconteceu a noite na festa. Enquanto grandes vedetes da musica se sucediam no palco, Evita conseguiu se instalar ao lado de Peron. Alguns instantes mais tarde o coronel só tinha olhos para ela. Juan Domingos Peron, como ela, era também filho ilegitimo. Tornou-se um adulto esperto, maquiavélico e envolvente. Como grande sedutor que era, refletia o desejo dos outros fazendo com que se sentissem únicos, viúvo, incapaz de amar, entretanto encantou-se pela pequena atriz que o escutava atentamente, e que encontrava naquele discurso a explicação para sua própria vida. O inimigo em comum era a oligarquia, Evita ouvia as palavras de Peron
