people change, the money changed but the corruption that infested the police in the 60's, grew and contaminated the government, and look at this monster now!

Looking into Brazilian History, the people are friendly, welcoming, but they have a limit, and they are showing it. They have a history of internal n 1968 I watched thousands of FGV battles, like Canudos, Farrapos War, The (Fundacao Getulio Vargas) students in Inconfidence in Minas Gerais, the Student Rio protest against a Dictatorial government of exclusion, military violence and murder. I grew up in a Brazil that was divided between that reality and the out of control spiral changes in the system. When I started College, in 1978, I witnessed, fear, and more defying as a it could become, people screamed everywhere that the people united would never be defeated.


They were right! The defeat came years later with the dollar price rising everyday, with the inexplicable death of the first elected President, and the poor so poor that was almost impossible to exist. Then I left, disappointed, powerless, sad. I could never forgive my own Country. I could never understand why, it was just about beaches, Carnaval and beautiful women. A great country condemned by fear and ignorance Going back in History, times change,

changed to give the people a false sense of security, and freedom. I remember in 1978 with still many political problems and the dictatorial ghosts still haunting the country, the government took measures to “change” the political scene, just to pacify and take care of the economical problems that were already escalating. For many years, the people endured, they suffered, hunger, illiteracy, droughts in the North East, disease, but we Brazilians are hopeful, our middle name is hope, because this was about the only thing anyone could do. From the people’s awakening in 68, to 1984 was a jump, and again the people were asking for Direct Vote. The people didn’t want a government named by the military anymore, it was time, and there was no way out of it, President Tancredo Neves, a man the people voted with the heart and passion but died mysteriously even before he took oath.

The corruption in the Brazilian Government has established itself rebellion in 68, they are all examples of the since then, and never ended, as usual, the people’s limits put at test by oppressing people with money always find a way, but powers. the poor, does the only thing they can, work more or turn to crime. Brazil has way too Gradually everything changed but it many Social, educational, medical and po-

litical problems. To be the as they claim the 6th country in the World Economy, none of this deficiencies are justified. The only justification to all this is the blind corruption, the scandalous problems that are now escalating to more violence, because the people one more time has endured too much, and as in a Democratic government, they are the only ones that can change how things are. I am not in favor of crazy manifestations, leads to chaos, leads to death, and unnecessary violence. Living in Brazil, in major political cities, amidst all the craziness that is happening right now is a great risk. Death, violence, injustice, protests all the above and more! President Dilma was herself a victim of the government policies, which persecuted her and many others during the Dictatory period. For many years families tried to get justice, for the thousands of victims, the martyrs of a time we all wanted to forget, and we see it happening all over again.

Brazilians are attached to their land, political machine that is trustworthy. No proud, many poor but not beggars, there more people at crack land, dying waiting is no respect for the land, the Indians, the for medical assistance because they don’t forests, the people’s patrimony and legacy.


Today corruption is a problem that many protest against, but nobody seems to have power enough to fix it. Government more than ever certifies poverty with different grants, there is no social justice, and kids still die on the streets. Not mentioning, and the scandalous lack of safety. Today my question is, where is this going to take the people? How is Brazil going to digest this very important transitional moment in History? I would like to be able to feel in my heart, that the Giant will rise to a great future and its people will always be proud. I want a Brazil, that is free, without, drugs, poverty, a fair justice system, a

have enough medical professionals. I want the kids to have parents, that will never allow them to sleep in the streets, and I want peace of mind to all, so we can all get the life we deserve. Have a great Month,

A Clear Path

A Clear Path Uncertainty is, most times, routes, in search of the same And the hopes you had to And the lesson may point

LEARNING WITH MYSELF our closest companion. The – INTERNAL WISDOM roads to be travelled in life are almost always unknown, If you are like me and think uncertain or unexpected. that to live is to finally figure out what life is all about, finding out the why of all things and mostly to understand the main reason of your own existence … If you strive to uncover what is going on around you, understanding not only about facts and reasons of your life but mainly, trying to understand what is touching and changing the lives of everyone that either enter you life or is just a passer by … If, in a given moment, you begin to realize what’s the reason for everything that happens and it’s called life … and you try to make sense of what you’re going through … If you understand that to find a meaningful sense in the experience called life is the main reason to exist, please join my peers, because you are part of an enormous group that live in conditions similar to yours.

We are always facing surprises, some better than others, every one of them promising a big challenge. Although our personal experiences are totally unique, the habitual cycle of events in human life goes the same way. As the time comes for us to feel weak, without answers, we go in search of the much needed support, thinking that somehow, somewhere there will be the help we need to see clearly. We trust the challenge that we face will be explained to us. We believe the possible solutions will surface as soon as we make small changes in our route, success will embrace us and our dreams will come true. It does work like that … Despite all the confluence in our ways, even being alike, following similar

results, human reactions are peculiar to each being. We are similar yet different, and so is the more adequate solution for each one of us.

Each one of us, the people searching for results similar to ours, is a different being. Each being feels, interprets, and reacts in a different way, when faced with a reality similar to ours. Our paths as human beings are closely related to each individual, to its knowledge, perceptions, interests, expectations … which may differ from ours.

That ill solution may be a further disappointment and your expectations will remain unfulfilled. Because the source next to you is not always the best advisor, you might end up in a place worse than you were before.

You may find help in someone else’s wisdom and this help may not be the best one for you.

you in another direction.

The new direction may be a search within, where you have well guarded your best solutions. The most precious answers to your questions reside within your wisdom, guarded by your Wise-Self and this is the place where you will find the answers to your life, which will never disappoint you.

Vera Fonseca e seu novo Livro

unho, este é um mês especial para mim, no dia 29 lançarei um novo livro, avançando mais um degrau nesta escalada literária, fiquei surpresa quando enviei os originais para a Giostri Editora de São Paulo e em apenas uma semana, recebi um e-mail do editor, Sr. Alex Giostri, foi uma agradável surpresa, com o coração acelerado fui degustando cada palavra lentamente, saboreando com imensa alegria, posto o texto aqui, quero dividir com vocês:

Cuidar de mim.

Fazer com que este voo tenha um alcance infinito, e do alto do meu céu eu consiga comungar com o dialeto uno, onde a gente se entenda sem precisar sequer emitir o som da voz...

Li sua obra. Na realidade, li e depois reli alguns trechos, pois é bem interessante. O tema maior é o amor, como você mesma diz. Há em seus versos, em seu texto, uma melancolia enraizada, uma espécie de lavação de roupa sua consigo mesma. Mas não em um olhar pessimista, ao contrário, há em sua melancolia a esperança, a luminosidade, a crença de que tudo que se faz e se apresenta com a dor se metamorfoseia em algo maior, melhor, mais doce. O fato de ser uma mulher vivida dá às suas palavras uma maior propriedade para lidar com as sentimentalidades, parabéns. Sua obra deve sim ser publicada e estar nas livrarias. Tenho interesse em unir você aos outros autores da editora.”, a partir deste e-mail, assinamos

Sonhar que se é águia pode até ser comum, correr até pegar o embalo e saltar do lugar mais alto, deixar o corpo planar é fácil, mas, e depois, onde estão as asas? Quero só desta passagem uma aventura assim, correr muito, encarar este infinito de possibilidades, olhar de frente, saber onde ancorar a minha enorme coragem...

Será a comunicação perfeita, uma nova criação, ou mera lembrança, de algum tempo onde havia muito mais luz, até o querer era muito diferente, um existir sem apego, e o sentir situe-se apenas no perceber que o ar entra e sai... Mantenedor de nosso corpo, ou o grande fantasma a aprisionar a nossa existência, como se a vida estivesse restrita ao respirar, e todos os seus outros complementos carnais, e a música apenas permanecesse para nos lembrar, antes de estarmos hoje aqui, já havíamos sido...

Durante este arriscado passeio poderíamos até ousar, vestir o sonho de um antigo lugar sem doença e desamor, nesta fantasia o paraíso, seria somente um lugar purificado, liberto da roupagem humana, sem nenhum dos pecados contrato, EQUACIONANDO SENTIMENTOS da cor,este grande espaço que nos lembraria, agora é um sonho realizado, após a noite de autóonde há amor, não há a dor... grafos estará disponível nas melhores livrarias do País, espero que os leitores aprovem. Vera Fonseca (Este poema faz parte do livro Inspiração)

Lamentável o nível a que chegou, fico muito triste com Segue a rima... a violência, mas se é assim que o povo se faz ouvir.

Elita Freitas Oi amigos queridos,

bonequinhas e brincávamos horas e horas com elas.

Mais um mês que chega e com ele as Festas Juninas!!!!

Então ate que enfim chegava a hora de colocarmos a nossa roupa novinha de caipirinha e todos íamos brincar e dançar quadrilha, não tinha ensaio, era tudo improvisado na hora, mas todos sabiam, pois todos os anos era a mesma coisa, que delicia! Hora da fogueira! Depois que o fogo se apagava e só ficavam as brasas, íamos pular a fogueira e pulando segurando umas nas mãos das outras dizíamos “São João dormiu, São Pedro acordou! Vamos ser comadres que São João mandou!E éramos comadres para sempre….. por toda a vida!

Nossa eu adoro as festas de São João, como sempre lembrando das coisas que vivi na minha infância e adolescência. Festas Juninas tem a cara do Nordeste, onde vivi os melhores anos da minha vida! Antigamente, fazia mos fogueiras, e soltavamos balões, as noites frias de junho ficavam iluminadas por aquelas luzes que iam sumindo no céu, se misturando com as estrelas, e aqueles pequenos pontos de luz, iam recheados de sonhos e pedidos, para Santo Antonio, nos arranjar um namorado, alguém que nos amasse intensamente!!!! E cantávamos assim “ Eu pedi a São João, Eu pedi a São João…..que me desse um matrimonio!!!! São João disse que não…. São João disse que não….matrimonio, matrimonio, ahh isso e’ lá com Santo Antonio!

Como a vida simples e’ gostosa! Não tínhamos, computadores, IPad, IPhone, IPod, Tv, mas era delicioso….ainda hoje sinto saudade de tanta coisa boa que já passou em minha vida e as Festas Juninas foi uma delas. Hoje os tempos mudaram e a América, tem absorvido muito das diversas culturas que aqui chegam, e uma delas as Festas Juninas que acontecem em todas as Comunidades Brasileiras que com certeza bem diferentes das de antigamente, mas me da o prazer de levar minhas netas para conhecer um pouco mais das nossas tradições.

As comidas então, nossa! Milho de todas as maneiras possíveis e imagináveis, assado, cozido, canjica (em São Paulo, curau), pamonha, mungunzá, canjica em São Paulo e em alguns outros estados do Brasil, que confusão, mas o importante e’ que tudo era delicioso….lembro da minha mãe e amigas, descascando as espigas de milho enquanto outras iam ralando, outras espremiam, era uma verdadeira linha de montagem! Enquanto nos as crianças, ficávamos só observando e esperando ansiosas a hora de poder comer todas aquelas delicias…..as vezes algumas das espigas de milho eram tão novinhas e pequenas que elas nos davam e fingíamos que eram Um beijo e ate o próximo mês……Elita

Entre Amigas

Elita Freitas Hello Dear Friends, One more month and with it comes the Brazilian June Festivals!! I love the celebration of St. John, as always remembering things I experienced in my childhood and adolescence. Brazilian June Festivals are originally from the Northeast, where I spent the best years of my life! We had bonfires and threw balloons in the sky, the cold nights June were lit by those lights that were disappearing slowly, mingling with the stars, and those little points of light, were filled with dreams and requests, for Saint Antony, to get a boyfriend, someone who loves us intensely!! And so we sang "I asked John, I asked John ..... to gave me a marriage!! St. John said no .... St. John said no .... marriage, marriage, ahh this with Saint Anthony. The food WOW! Corn in every way imaginable, baked, boiled, canjica (in São Paulo, curau), tamale, mungunzá, canjica in São Paulo and in some other states of Brazil, the usual confusion, but the important is that everything was delicious .... I remember my mother and friends, stripping the leaves from the corn while others were grating, squeezing it, a real assembly line! While the children were anxious just watching and waiting for the time to be able to eat all those delights ..... sometimes some of the cobs were so small that they would give it to us and pretended they were dolls and we could play for hours with them.

So until it finally came time to put our brand new “caipira outfits” we went all going to play and square dance, no rehearsal, it was all improvised on the spot, but everyone knew, as every year was the same thing a delight! Once the fire was finished and only the embers remained, we would skip the bonfire and jumping holding each others hand we said "John slept, woke Peter! Let's be godmothers that St. John ordered!

And godmothers are forever ..... for life! How simple life was! We had no computers, IPad, IPhone, IPod, TV, but it was still delicious .... I miss it so much and the June Feasts are one of the things I miss the most. Today times have changed and America has absorbed a lot of different cultures who came here, and one of them June Festivals that take place in all Brazilian Communities they are surely quite dif-

ferent from those of yesteryear, but give me a great pleasure to take my granddaughters to know alittle more of our traditions.

When is Brazil going to catch a break?

The last few years, all of the news has been discussing how b a d l y prepared Brazil was to handle the upcoming tournaments. Talking about how bad the crime in Brazil was and how rampant prostitution and other negative stories. The news also reviewed the tough transportation projects, corruption in the government, and how bad the Seleção were playing futebol over the last couple of years. The Estadio Nacional in Brasilia, Brazil opened yesterday for the first game of the 2013 Confederations Cup…Basically a warm-up tournament to the 2014 World cup also in Brazil. The Confederations Cup brings together the winners of various tournaments in each region. Mexico, Spain, Tahiti, Italy, Uruguay, Nigeria, Japan,

and Brazil. A clearly emotional moment for all of the players involved as tears were held back by legendary goalkeeper Julio Cesar and defender David Luiz. Brazilians filled the stadium and were bursting with pride and excitement…. young and old…as the first steps towards erasing the horrible memory of the Maracanã ( The 1950 World Cup defeat in Maracana) were taken as the REAL Brazilian squad showed to play. Immediately from the opening kickoff, the 21 year old phenomenon Neymar challenged the weak Japan defense. 3 minutes into the game he scored on a first-time strike GOLAÇO and had lifted the weight of the world off of himself, off of the coach, and off of Brazil. The high pressing, offensive minded Brazilian team ignored the doubters and played the game that is entrenched in their souls. “The five time world champions

returned to form and drilled Japan 3-0.

However, it was more than just a resounding victory on the opening day. The stadium in Brasilia looked fantastic. The crowd was behind the team and for all intents and purposes, Brazil had once again proven the doubters wrong. Yet, the stories keep coming. The lead up stories on ESPN discussed how a couple of riots occurred

prior to the contest. Who doesn’t have riots or strikes? South Africa had way worse conditions and it was not as widely as reported. All of the talk about how the Brazilian team were not ready and they destroyed Japan. But, immediately after the criticism still came about saying that Japan only had two days rest and Brazil was pressing up too far. David Luiz, Dani Alves, Thiago Silva, Marcelo….All pressing and running up to join the offense…as is the Brazilian style…was looked upon negatively. No one wanted to discuss how well Oscar played and interchanged with Fred with great decisions and passing. Let me start by saying I am an American who is known for my passion for working with Brazil as I do by bringing tour groups from Brazil, Argentina, and other countries to American stores like the Sports Authority. I have lived in Brazil before and I have been working with Brazilian businesses for over 17 years. In all of my years working with my friends from Brazil, I know a few things. When in Brazil, never schedule a meeting before 12:00PM or after 4:00PM. When in Brazil, loyalty, friendship, and a handshake or more important than a

contract.The point is simply this. Brazilians do things at their own pace. When the time is right, they will get it done and get it right. You don’t become the 5th largest economy in the world by not knowing how to do things. The same goes for the Selecao. They know what is at stake. Do you really think they care what anyone outside of Brazil is saying about the team? No. Why? Because they know the pressure to win the World cup in Brazil is more powerful. They know when to get serious and when to play for keeps…and on Saturday that team came to play. Every country has crime, poverty, and issues. But this is Brazil. It’s time for the news people to report on the beautiful game in the beautiful country. Futebol has

come home to the five time world champions. They should be worried about how their countries are going to handle the Selecao instead of criticizing. Brazilians will do enough of criticizing themselves. The Japan game is one game. Today in Maracanã Mexico and Italy played in another game for the tournament. Andrea Pirlo, one of the legendary players for Italy scored on a magnificent free kick. It also happened to be his 100th game. He said after the game, “ It was an honor to score and win in this cathedral of futebol.” Futebol is a religion in Brazil. The churches (Stadiums) are all being built and will be finished. Its time to enjoy them.

• Photo Credit Stuarts Cove According to a new global analysis led by researchers at the University of British Columbia and other scientists, shark watching is a major economic driver for dozens of countries, generating $314 million annually. Citing the study's projections that shark-related tourism could more than double within 20 years, generating over $780 million annually, The Pew Charitable Trusts is calling for greater protections for sharks through the designation of sanctuaries around the world.

Shark-related tourism is a growing business worldwide, with established operations in at least 83 locations in 29 countries. Although places such as South Africa, the United States, and Australia have typically dominated this industry, shark ecotourism is becoming an economic boon to countries across the Indian Ocean and Pacific Ocean regions.

The increase in shark ecotourism and its economic value can lead to interest in establishing sanctuaries for sharks, which play a critical role in the health of marine systems.

In recent years, nine countries—Palau, the Maldives, Honduras, Tokelau, The Bahamas, the Marshall Islands, the Cook Islands, French Polynesia, and New Caledonia— The study finds that shark watching have created sanctuaries by prohibattracts 590,000 tourists and sup- iting commercial shark fishing to ports more than 10,000 jobs each protect the animals in their waters. year.

"It's clear that sharks contribute to a healthy marine environment, which is paramount to the long-term social, cultural, and financial wellbeing of millions of people around the world," says Jill Hepp , director of global shark conservation at Pew. "Many countries have a significant financial incentive to conserve sharks and the places where they live." In contrast to the growing ecotourism industry, the value of global shark catches has been declining, largely as a result of overfishing. Ap-

Tendências opostas Direcionam Desenvolvimento de Novos Produtos no SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment Novos produtos respondem às demandas dos consumidores por tecnologia.

Quando a 2013 Licensing Expo em Las Vegas abrir no dia 18 junho, o SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment (TM) vai estrear uma linha de produtos projetados para os consumidores tech-dependentes de hoje, incluindo um jogo de aplicativo móvel de animais de inspiração marinha. Mas a empresa também está desenvolvendo produtos que se alinham com os prazeres simples da vida, reconhecendo a crescente predileção dos consumidores por tradição, nostalgia e do mundo real experiências que eles ligam para as pessoas e a natureza.


Há uma dicotomia interessante nas tendências de compra do consumidor que emergiu nos últimos anos", disse o Diretor de Criação para o SeaWorld Parks & Entertainment, Scott Helmstedter. Os consumidores permanecem fascinados com a tecnologia de novas formas de aprender, se divertir e melhorar seu estilo de vida. Outro lado, eles também desejam o conforto de familiares fortes histórias emocionais e produtos nostálgicos que criam ligações mais profundas com o mundo ao seu redor."


Na Expo, um show de licenciamento que atrai mais de 5.000 marcas de primeira linha, com licenciadores e licenciados, onde o SeaWorld ® pretende promover os produtos que demonstram a participação ativa da empresa em resgate de animais e de reabilitação. De acordo com www.Trendwatching.com,

os consumidores esperam que as empresas "irão proferir declarações grandiosas sobre 'valores' ou 'cultura' a prova real, inequívoca e clara ... sobre os resultados reais." Como exemplo de produtos que demonstram esse compromisso profundo, o SeaWorld lançou sua série popular de TV, Sea Rescue ((TM)) e um novo Saving A Species uma coleção de DVD que dão aos consumidores uma visão em primeira mão de operação de resgates da empresa, reabilitação e programas de libertação, e também os esforços de conservação em todo o mundo. "Tivemos uma resposta tremenda aos nossos produtos que contam histórias reais do SeaWorld de ajudar a resgatar, reabilitar e liberar os animais marinhos selvagens." Helmstedter disse. "Os consumidores se conectar com as emoções e paixões de pessoas reais, e apreciar as empresas que dar a volta." Tecnologia ainda TOPS A tecnologia é um piloto de ponta da inovação de produto para o SeaWorld, pois os consumidores não mostram nenhum sinal de interesse minguante em dispositivos e aplicações. De fato, uma pesquisa divulgada março 2013 mostrou que 79 por cento dos usuários de smartphones alcançam seus dispositivos em um período de 15 minutos depois acordar, e a maioria (62 por cento) pegam seus telefones imediatamente (IDC, março de 2013.) Em um arranjo de desenvolvimento do produto, SeaWorld recentemente introduziu o Turtle Trek (TM), um jogo divertido, envolvente móvel com uma tartaruga valente que vence uma variedade de desafios e descobre novos amigos em um seascape em constante mudança. Baseado no sucesso deste jogo, a empresa planeja produzir vários jogos digitais kid-centric e aplicativos. COOL, BLUE RETRO Em um aceno para as tendências de nostal-

gia, SeaWorld fez uma parceria com a Palmer Cash para oferecer diferentes estilos de camisetas vintage em lojas selecionadas Nordstrom e www.Nordstrom.com. As novas camisas possuem retro-projetados personagens animais, incluindo SeaWorld Shamu ®, um urso polar ultra-legal, um leão-marinho carismático e até mesmo o logotipo original do SeaWorld de 1964.

It's what makes Antarctica the coldest theme park attraction in Orlando. New technologies combine to create a freezing -- but dry - climate, allowing guests to spend

With every penguin gift imaginable, Glacial Collections gift shop is the place to shop for all penguin lovers. The retail shop's color scheme of black, bright yellows, oranges and whites, and the penguin-shaped displays welcome guests to browse the cache of splendid penguinrelated items.

And there's more: SeaWorld will donate $1 from each Cup That Cares purchase to the SeaWorld and Busch Gardens速 Conservation Fund, a not-for-profit foundation that helps protect wildlife around the world. Antarctica: Empire of the Penguin is an all-family experience that can be found only at SeaWorld Orlando. "We've taken our guests and fans on astounding journeys," says Terry Prather, SeaWorld Orlando's president. "But no one has ever experienced what we're bringing to Orlando this year. The first-of-its-kind ride, the cold, the wind, the thrills and danger of Antarctica, coupled with getting up close to penguins in their freezing world is something only SeaWorld can do."

Following the fall 2012 closing of the drive-through Wild Safari after 38 years, the park began a major renovation that included a redesign of various simulated natural habitats and the creation of Camp Aventura. Camp Aventura is the main stop along the off-road excursion. Guests encounter some of the Wilds family's favorite small exotic animals, and even hand-feed or pet them. Exotic birds, unusual reptiles, a fuzzy, two-toed sloth and giant, Vietnamese potbellied pigs are just a few of the creatures that call Camp Aventura home. Camp Aventura also features a raised viewing platform where guests can handfeed towering giraffes for a small additional fee. Later this summer, guests can soar through the air high above the animals on a new, two-seater zip line for an additional fee, and the park will also debut a large, private catering facility for group picnics. Safari Off Road Adventure is included with general theme park admission and Season Passes, and will operate daily to the public on a varied schedule beginning May 25.

Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch Girafas gêmeas reticuladas, são o único conjunto de girafas gêmeas nascidos com vida nos Estados Unidos, e também o segundo a ser reportado. Elas nasceram no “Natural Bridge Wildlife Ranch” no dia 10 de maio de 2013. A fêmea primogênita, Wasswa, pesava 95 £ e foi de 4,5 metros de altura. O macho segundo-nascido, Nakato, pesava 125 £ e foi de 5,5 metros de altura.

O gêmeo Nakato foi alimentado a mão desde o nascimento para garantir que ele receba uma nutrição adequada. Nakato está sendo reintroduzido a sua família através de visitas curtas, supervisionadas para assegurar que a mãe não ira recebê-lo como uma ameaça. Os gêmeos são o terceiro de nascimento da mãe Carol. "Como nascimentos de gêmeos são raros, tivemos a preocupação de que a mãe não seria capaz de produzir leite suficiente para os dois filhos", disse o Dr. Patin. "Queríamos tomar medidas prudentes para proteger a saúde dos gêmeos."

Fashion & Art: Bulgari The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950 - 1990

I always visit Bulgari because it is the most important museum of contemporary art.” Andy Warhol

The Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco are pleased to announce The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950 - 1990, an exhibition of approximately 150 pieces created by the renowned Italian jeweler over four decades. This exclusive exhibition will highlight jewelry that defined a pivotal period in Italian design, and will include many pieces from the personal collection of Elizabeth Taylor. The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, 1950 - 1990 will be on display at the de Young Museum from September 21, 2013 through February 17, 2014.

jeweler’s eclectic creativity and invention during this period. Works in the exhibition also include those from the 1970s and 80s, a particularly innovative period for the jeweler and one influenced by Pop Art and other contemporary trends. “The hard-edged designs of the 1970s included a whole range based on the Stars-and-Stripes motif, while in the 1980s the Parentesi collection had a modular architectural presence; both show how the jeweler could lead in new directions with a strong sense of design,” said Martin Chapman, curator in charge of European Decorative Arts and Sculpture at the Fine Arts Museums of San Francisco. Bulgari’s successful cultivation of prominent patrons and movie stars like Sophia Loren, Ingrid Bergman, and perhaps most notably, Elizabeth Taylor, has long been a key aspect of the jeweler’s reputation. To help explore the cultural context in which these objects were made, the exhibition will include innovative uses of sketches, photographs, and other archival materials that help to reveal a fascinating intersection of celebrity, design, and fine craftsmanship.

Bulgari notably began to create its own trademark in jewelry in the 1960s by embracing boldly-colored combinations of gemstones, use of heavy gold, and forms derived from Greco-Roman classicism, the The Art of Bulgari: La Dolce Vita & Beyond, Italian Renaissance, and the 19th-century 1950 - 1990 continues the Fine Arts MuRoman school of goldsmiths.

pensamento e como funciona esta incrível máquina de coletivos. Quais são suas principais influências? O sentir, ler muito, estudar comportamento humano, expressão da vida, curiosidade, desafio pessoal, necessidade de expressar o que eu sentia de dentro para fora. Tive algumas grandes influências na minha vida, amigos em forma de anjos que me ensinaram a ver o mundo e recriá-lo, de pegar uma informação de uma maneira, transmutar e devolver ao mundo de outra forma. Pessoas simples que ensinam outra perspectiva de vida de acreditar no passo seguinte. De acreditar naquela semente que germina na alma e dar adubo para ela resistir às dificuldades até que ela tenha a possibilidade de fazer parte do real.

Como surgiu esta preocupação com a reciclagem, que de alguma forma também é uma preocupação coma sustentabilidade? Não sou guiada pela moda, sou guiada pelo instinto. Coincidentemente as ações que aconteceram na minha vida sempre começam pelo prazer de realizar um desafio a ser vencido, que vem de dentro. O fato de a minha arte ter estas características foi um acontecimento convergente de intenções que se uniram em um grande quebra cabeças.

O pensamento e os argumentos sendo reciclados e transmutados também faz parte da criação desta nova semente de ações para as próximas gerações. Reciclar contextos. Podemos dizer que sua obra é um mix de pintura com escultura? Quando me perguntam se eu pinto eu digo que sou pintada risos... A fibrila tem um comportamento completamente diferente, é como um suco de notícias, um cereal composto. Também não é esculpido, porque é formado, ou moldo com as mãos a obra. É do contato com o calor das mãos em conjunto com uma massa híbrida na qual com muita técnica controlo sua aquosidade, concentração de fibrilas, dinamismo corpóreo e muita calma para lidar com o comportamento das fibrilas até a sua estabilização e secamento. Combina muito com a umidade do ar, a chuva, o sol o calor e ainda o temperamento da artista que resolve dialogar com as fibrilas enquanto tudo participa em conjunto desta mutação. Já as cores nas obras contidas são fibrilas pigmentadas, são mais de 40 técnicas aplicadas.

Z para ser o fim do dicionário. Uma releitura secular do Dadaismo que ao invés de negar o pensamento... reconhece. Em 50 eventos movemos esta intenção em ação e culminou em grandes eventos como o Parangolé no Brasil que em 2006 reuniu mais de 80 artistas em um desfile de arte pública onde sempre todos foram convidados a participar. Teve até chamada de artistas em colunas sociais de grande circulação de São Paulo. Cobertura de TVs inclusive e pós-evento em meia página em um jornal da cidade de São Paulo. Ou seja, se nós somos seres pensantes e temos mãos e pés para movermos o que pensamos, precisamos acreditar nas ferramentas de interpretação do pensamento, seja texto, seja música, seja pintura, seja interpretação. Mas conscientes que temos algo de criação a ser expressado em nossa passagem pela vida. O que te faz levantar e viver o dia? A Záza na realidade é uma continuidade do movimento que veio com esta força mágica de motivação do fazer. O resultado dela ainda está longe de ser previsto. Por enquanto me sinto em plena navegação de desafio de onde posso dar mais um passo em um novo dia que nasce para ser saboreado. Seja no ateliê, seja em um diálogo interessante, seja em dar dicas para alguém que precisa acreditar em algo, seja em dizer bom dia. Assim Záza em três anos realizou mais de 55 exposições no Brasil e no exterior. O que a arte representa para você? (Pois é sabido que muitos artistas usam a arte para expressarem seus sentimentos e impressões de mundo, porém á aqueles que apenas o fazem como forma de hobby ou passatempo, para dar uma pausa no estresse do dia-a-dia). Eu faço por respirar a vida e o que penso enquanto navego no descobrimento do que ela tem para me revelar. Estou disponível para vivenciar e darei o melhor de mim para que seja digno e com as honras da verdade do que sinto.·.

Todo artista tem seu mentor, aquela pessoa a quem você se espelhou, que te incentivou e te inspirou a seguir essa carreira, indo adiante e levando seus sonhos a outros patamares de expressão, quem é essa pessoa e como ela te introduziu no mundo das artes? Tenho vários gênios, como já disse antes, Guy Collet que foi um espeleólogo francês que viveu no Brasil e acompanhei seus últimos anos de vida, com um pouco de seus pensamentos dentre embarcações em escala que produzia, pergaminhos de 1200 1300 franceses que colecionava, com suas conclusões de vivências. Diva Buss que escolheu a reciclagem natural de fibrilas celulósicas sem o uso de químicas que me permitiu conhecer a biologia e os comportamentos desta alquimia e me orienta até hoje em nossos papos de comadres... Fany Faintich que é uma curadora de arte da história do nosso país desde a década de 70 e me adotou como avó, me fez sentir digna de fazer parte da família e muitos outros membros que fazem parte desta confraria digna de dizer que vale a pena ser de verdade.

Você tem outra atividade além da pintura?Você da aulas, palestras etc.? Como articuladora de arte, empresária ligada e antenada como dizem. Tudo faz parte de tudo, a arte nada seria se não souber se apresentar. Portanto defendo muito a aula de mercado–para artistas. É preciso saber trabalhar em equipe consciente e profissional. Saber o que faz, porque faz, quando fazer, porque e fazer mesmo. Além de ser humana, ou tentar ser, a arte é uma profissão que exige administração, contabilidade, marketing, imprensa, logística de eventos, montagem, desmontagem, manutenção de acervo, pesquisa, estudo. Além disso, tenho projetos em formulação e em desenvolvimento com soluções de tecnologias de reciclagem limpa a nível industrial, ou seja, para implantação coletiva no Brasil e quiçá no mundo. Mas este assunto será apresentado com a solução já resolvida industrialmente e em atividade. Por enquanto o objetivo é abrir este diálogo franco com outros mercados focados na nova matéria prima da fibrila celulósica de forma concreta, como tenho feito quando levo minhas obras para o mercado europeu. Abrir diálogo e me aprimorar como ser humano. Aulas e palestras foram algumas ministradas enquanto tinha ateliê no Brasil, serão realizadas novamente assim que novos projetos sejam implantados. Para mim ainda é só o começo.... Site: http://zazajardim.tumblr.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/zaza.jardim

What materials do you use in your work?

Books, newspapers, cardboard boxes, all paper that has the fibril living that allows part of alchemy as one ingredient, with love and the feeling that I have of forming work, realising what I think and what I feel, with the help of water, sun, rain and pigments that are on earth. The thought and the arguments being recycled and transmuted also as part of the creation of this new seed stock for the next generations. Recycling contexts.

Can we say that this work is a mixture of painting with sculpture?

When people ask me if I paint I say I'm painted ! The fibril has a completely different behavior as a juice of news, or acereal composite. Nor is carved, because it is formed or milled by hands that work.

It is in contact with the warmth of hands with a mass of hybrid techniques in which determins its control, concentration of fibrils, body dynamic and calmly deals with the behavior of the fibrils to its stabilization and drying.It combines a lot with the humidity, rain, sun and warmth even temperament by the artist that solves the dialogue with the fibrils while full joint participation in this mutation. The colors already in the works are contained in the pigmented fibrils with over 40 techniques applied. Even with the use of terracotta clay I was able to play with the pigmented ink creating a natural still under study ... I've been applying paint on some of my work but it is too early to say I paint.

How is your creative process itself? What inspires you? a movie, book ... Where does this first impulse to produce started?

The creation process takes place by the same situation, perception of feeling that exudes. I do not base myself in any pre-existing work, since I never had art classes. Even the arts that I studied did not have this raw material produced with their own hands the way you start from nothing, the newspaper we constitute the raw material from, to be worked. So it would be impossible to do something similar to what already exists. So I am free of any reference allowing me to navigate the model that does not exist. In my studio there is no television, no sound, no drugs. Has the air, the smell of rain coming, the heat invading the space, has the wind dropping molds, the bird singing and passing by the workshop.My home studio was disassembled and little moments of my studio are scattered around the world, the latest work was executed in the middle of the forest in the South of France, working with pigments Lascaux, Pech Merle and Collonges La Rouge. The works were exhibited in October at the Carrousel Du Louvre with molded hands, as was the early creative art that I personally met there.

Following instinct and poetry ever written. If you were to summarize in a few words the meaning of the Arts in your life ...


Without art the man we couldn’t read books, couldn’t wear beautiful clothes and couldn’t eat with designed forks and dishes. Without art he couldn’t sign documents, mankind would be nothing, would not have lives Zaza Jardim”.

opportunity to perform over 50 events with exhibitions, books, shows and all the tools of expression of thought was put into practice. There I united myths and anonymous, documenting everything that was happening around me in all these senses. I had the opportunity to dive with my hands and mind in the Brazilian culture in full public dialogue, The Fanzine P NO B. In this way I met and documented Diva Buss, met geniuses, Diva is the missionary of Handmade and paper Artizan in Brazil. When I met her, introduced by his sister Yara, I was immediately invited to exhibit at an event at the Journal. We became friends and after seven years of friendship I felt that one day the friendship could be lost and I would not have learned to make paper, so I called her and asked. Diva teach me how to make paper? It was early 2010 and I've felt that a new stage of my life had started. Then created Artola Recycled, Zaza Jardim from A to Z. When I walked into my house ... I had all my life in a studio there waiting for me with all the qualities needed by Zaza, the tools were all over the place. In 40 days I climbed the slope for the Bienal, building to perform a mega display at an event for sustainable architecture with 120 work pieces, six of them of more than one meter long.

Art is an exquisite intellectual production, where emotions are embedded in the context of creation, but in art history, we see that many artists are derived from other, following technical and artistic movements through time, you have any models or influences fromsome artists? Who would it be?

A re reading of the secular Dadaism that instead of denying the thought ... recognizes it. In 50 events we moved this intention into action and resulted in major events. The Parangolé in Brazil in 2006, brought together more than 80 artists in a show of public art where they were all invited to participate. There were social columns, articles in papers of wide circulation of São Paulo, TV coverage and post-event news also in newspapers in the city of São Paulo. That is, if we are thinking beings and we have hands and feet to move we need to believe in the interpretation tools of thought, whether is text, music, painting, and even interpretation.

Olá pessoal! Aqui estou novamente e, desta vez, para falar de mulheres incríveis que vivem e trabalham intimamente conectadas com a proposta de vida sustentável

THIANA SANTOS é pernambucana, artista plástica, especializada no reuso de garrafas PET. É referencia nacional quando se trata da produção a partir das garrafas plásticas, desenvolvendo capacitação e exposições em vários estados brasileiros e no exterior, a exemplo da Holanda, El Salvador, Inglaterra, Colômbia. As primeiras experiências com as garrafas plásticas (PET), surgiram a partir da sua necessidade de buscar novos materiais e da observação de grande quantidade desse material descartado no lixo urbano. Para ela, sustentabilidade e cuidado com o meio ambiente, são questões fundamentais no trabalho que realiza: “Acredito que o artista/designer tem um compromisso, além da inovação e originalidade, com a prática de projetos e processos de produção responsáveis.

Conversei com três brasileiras que considero ícones quando se trata de trabalhar com sustentabilidade do nosso planeta e em seu benefício. Gente que entende a importância de atuar, como cidadã e profissional, dentro da proposta do viver melhor.

MARIA ZANATTA é paranaense, trabalha com consultoria ambiental atuando nas áreas de remediação ambiental, gerenciamento de risco, gestão de resíduos sólidos, licenciamento ambiental, projeto de recuperação de áreas degradadas, plano de controle ambiental, projetos executivos de aterro sanitário, plano de saneamento básico, além de ser voluntária no Centro de Direitos Humanos de Londrina, no SALVO - Serviço Ambiental Voluntário de Londrina e no Setorial de Meio Ambiente do PT (Partido dos Trabalhadores/ Londrina) e ainda encontra tempo para desenvolver suas ecobijoux – Coisas de Maria- onde procura agregar materiais naturais e industriais que pram a legislação ambiental Brasileira.

MARIA ZANATTA: Participando da elaboração e/ou implantação de políticas públicas ambientais. Atuando em fóruns, conselhos, audiências públicas. THIANA SANTOS: O trabalho que venho realizando está dentro do conceito socio-ambiental, pois alia as questões ambientais e sociais ao mesmo tempo. Compro aos catadores de lixo, as garrafas pet e outros materiais como as latas de alumínio, desta forma estou colaborando com a geração de renda dessas pessoas.

Patricia Moura - Sustainainability-Urgent Environmental Changes Hello everybody!

Here I am again, and this time to talk about amazing women who live and work intimately connected with the proposed sustainable living. I talked with three Brazilian considered icons when it comes to working with the sustainability of our planet and for their benefit. People who understand the importance of acting as a citizen and professional, within the proposal to live better. MARIA ZANATTA from Paraná, works with environmental consultancy working in the areas of environmental remediation, risk management, solid waste management, environmental permitting, project reclamation, environmental control plan, executive projects for landfill, sanitation plan in addition to volunteer at the Center for Human Rights in Londrina, SALVO - Environmental Services and the Voluntary Sector Londrina Environment for PT (Workers' Party / Londrina) and still finds time to develop their ecobijoux Things Mary-where she seeks to add natural and industrial materials that comply with the Brazilian environmental legislation.

For her, sustainability and care for the environment are key issues in the work she does: "I believe that the artist / designer has a commitment, with innovation and originality, with practical projects and processing responsible production. I believe the designer has an important role in this process of consumer awareness and responsibility therefore has a duty to develop quality products, combined with the commitment to environmental issues. " MAYARA PIMENTEL is ahead, along with her cousin and partner Patricia Brito, of the trademarks 2Primas and Pimentel Clothes. Working with fashion conscious women and the production of clothing is developed from the process of sustainable management with the hiring of women in the communities, associations and factions formalized for the manufacturing of parts made with organic material, PET fabric, and other materials and processes that preserve the environment, while being economically viable. PATRICIA MOURA-How do you play? Tell us a little about your experience in the development of social action. MARIA ZANATTA: Participating in the preparation and / or implementation of environmental policies. Acting on forums, councils, public hearings.

rating with this generation income. Another form of social work is through workshops and lectures. I have accomplished a lot workinf closely with disadvantaged communities, often by invitation of municipalities and other governmental institutions or individuals. MAYARA PIMENTEL: We operate in actions involving social work and income generation in poor communities. We currently work with women from diverse communities thanks to the partnership with the NGO CUFA - Unified Center Slums - enabling and promoting income generation through working with sewing, promoting significant changes in the lives of many of these women. PATRICIA MOURA-We know that the professional social responsibility is well regarded by society, but how it influences your personal life? MARIA ZANATTA: Virtually all my routine, because I try to consume as much as possible, which is present products to individual and corporate social responsibility. THIANA SANTOS: We are all winners. When developing a workshop, for example, there is always an exchange. We take the knowledge and always bring a word of thanks. Often we learn something too, a different look in the process, a small observation, there is always an exchange!

THIANA SANTOS is from Pernambuco, specialized in reuse of PET bottles. Her national reference comes from the production from plastic bottles, developing training and with exhibitions in several Brazilian states and abroad, such as the Netherlands, THIANA SANTOS: The work I El Salvador, England, Colombia. have been doing is within the environmental concept, since it com The first experiments with plastic bines the environmental and sobottles (PET), arose from her need cial issues at the same time.

have with these women in need of work. Being able to bring hope to their lives is the compensation to all the work that involves preparing these women to produce with quality and professionalism. PATRICIA MOURA- Much of society believes that social responsibility is an obligation of the government. Why is the citizen acting as an agent of social transformation? ZANATTA MARIA: I consider social responsibility obligation of all because if we ignore a citizen or a community, without sharing our knowledge and practices, we are excluding the life of our country.

THIANA SANTOS:Brazilians should put into practice what our Constitution says: Constitution Chapter VI

VI - THE ENVIRONMENT (Art. 225)Text Chapter Article 225. Everyone has the right to an ecologically balanced environment and the common use and essential to a healthy quality of life, imposing on government and society the duty to defend it and preserve it for present and future generations. MAYARA PIMENTEL: I don’t believe in social responsibility asgovernmental. The opportunities are the same, but depends on the education that each one receives and learn how to enjoy them differently, transforming lives and we can’t take this responsibility away from Brazilians, including those being benefited, in our case, women seamstresses and companies.   PATRICIA MOURA- Can you change the world? Was the lesson learned?

MARIA ZANATTA: Sure you can. Since I started to work on raising awareness of sustainable environmental practices, I've seen a lot of change. The change is urgent. The planet needs our personal contribution. THIANA SANTOS: We need to form conscious consumers, small actions, big changes. Just each one doing their part. No information is lacking, we have to share, to reach everyone, because everyone has an important role in this process of change. MAYARA PIMENTEL: Since the world is world social differences and environmental degradation, exist but we believe in an order to act consciously. In everything you do reflects on the planet and the consequences of their choices, and those choices involves what you will eat, what to wear today. Think about it.

«Munch 150» – Munch Exhibition of the Century in Oslo On 2 June the National Museum of Art, Architecture and Design and the Munch Museum are combined forces in Oslo to stage the most comprehensive Munch exhibition ever.

High Line y t i C k r o Y w e N The High Line is a 1-mile (1.6 km) New York City linear park built on a 1.45-mile (2.33 km) section of the former elevated New York Central Railroad spur called the West Side Line, which runs along the lower west side of Manhattan; it has been redesigned and planted as an aerial greenway.

Yet so many accidents occurred between freight trains and other traffic that 10th Avenue became known as “Death Avenue”. After years of public debate about the hazard, in 1929 the city and the state of New York and the New York Central Railroad agreed on the West Side Improvement Project, which included the High Line. The 13mile (21 km) project eliminated 105 streetlevel railroad crossings and added 32 acres (13 ha) to Riverside Park. It cost over $150 million, about $2 billion in 2009 dollars.

A similar project in Paris (the nearly 3 mile Promenade plantée, completed in 1993) was the inspiration for this project. The High Line Park currently runs from Gansevoort Street, three blocks below West 14th Street, in the Meatpacking District, up to 30th Street, through the neighborhood of Chel- The High Line opened to trains in 1934.

The Coach Foundation's gift to the High Line represents Coach's continued commitment to the neighborhood it has called home since the company's founding in 1941. Coach's new global headquarters will be located in Hudson Yards, a 26-acre, mixeduse site located between West 30th and West 34th Streets, and 10th and 12th Avenues.

The Hudson Yards district encompasses the single largest piece of undeveloped property in Manhattan and will be the biggest development that has been realized since Rockefeller Center, with the High Line at the Rail Yards wrapping around the site. Coach, Inc. will be the anchor tenant in Hudson Yards' South Tower, occupying 15 stories and 740,000 square feet. The South Tower is the new, 47-story, 1.7 million square foot building currently under construction at West 30th Street and 10th Avenue; the first scheduled to be completed in Hudson Yards and projected to open in June, 2015.

"With this gift, Coach demonstrates its incredible leadership and commitment to the development of the Hudson Yards neighborhood," said Robert Hammond, Co-Founder, Friends of the High Line. "We extend our deepest thanks and gratitude to Coach for its support.

for construction to move ahead. The City of New York and Friends of the High Line held a groundbreaking ceremony in September, 2012, to mark the start of work on the project's first phase, which is projected to be complete in 2014. The High Line at the Rail Yards is being designed by James Corner Field Operations, Diller Scofidio + Renfro, and Piet Oudolf - the same designers behind the first two sections of the High Line park - along with a team of structural engineers, lighting designers, electrical and mechanical experts, and other construction specialists.

We are now closer to our goal of building an endowment and securing the much-needed support for the final section of the High Line. Once the entire freight rail structure is complete and open to the public, the High Line will provide an historic link, connecting our city's industrial past with the new development planned for the Hudson The Campaign for the High Line is a funThe South Tower will straddle the High Yards, for future generations of New York- draising effort by Friends of the High Line Line on West 30th Street, resulting in a new ers to enjoy." and was recently advanced by a $20 million semi-enclosed passageway to be the largpledge from the Diller - von Furstenberg est covered area on the High Line when the Frankfort added: "The High Line is an ex- Family Foundation, a $5 million pledge park opens in 2014.

About Music New Jazz-Inspired Album Lineage Uses Musical Deconstruction to Balance Past, Present and Future. Rock, pop classics revisited by veteran jazz artists Dave Liebman and Michael Stephans Since he began to seriously pursue a career as a jazz artist back in the 1960s, Dave Liebman has been on a transformative journey towards becoming a true original in the genre. After assuming sideman slots with the likes of Miles Davis, Elvin Jones, and Chick Corea, to name but a few, he has certainly earned his stripes. Those who’ve followed him more closely understand that he has become a deep and soulful storyteller in jazz in a way few others have. So what would you say to a trailblazer like Liebman when you discover he’s taken a batch of beloved pop songs-sweet, memorable, hummable “chestnuts” in the popular lexicon-and completely deconstructed it?

Liebman has, over the years, proved to be a risk-taker, a challenger, someone who purposely defies convention in a way that every iconoclast, especially musical ones, dare to every chance they get. After such an illustrious career, it’s evident that Liebman has earned the right to cherry pick his projects and challenges. Lineage is just that kind of project.

like Elvis, the Ventures, and, of course, the Beatles. Produced by Liebman and Stephans, recorded at Tommy Tedesco’s Tedesco Studio and mixed by Marty Mellinger at Cross Keys, the recording, on the Whaling City Sound imprint, falls at a beautiful and logical crossroads of Liebman’s career...in which he is comfortable enough to go “pop,” inventive and mature enough to deconstruct songs with wit and imagination, and entertaining enough to make sure he doesn’t leave listeners on either the pop or the jazz sides behind in the process.

Billed as “rock and pop classics revisited,” Lineage is actually a project long in coming. Liebman and drummer Michael Stephans talked about the idea a few years ago and started compiling a wish list of possible songs. Given the trajectory and complexity of SOURCE David Liebman Lieb’s career, they never got the chance to pull it off. Still it hung around and never really faded out of view. In 2010, the idea resurfaced. Lieb, with Stephans, guitarist Vic Juris, Bobby Avey on keys, Evan Gregor on bass, and woodwinds guru Matt Vashlishan began working on them the way a baker kneads hunks of dough. The list of potential covers, begun years back by Lieb included several of their favorite songs from the 50s and 60s by artists

What's good Orlando? This month I want to share with our readers a very talented female Hip Hop artist by the name of Gina Montana. By way of New York, Gina has made a home in Orlando. I start following this artist a few months ago and I was most impressed with her attention to detail when it comes to her videos. As Indie artist we tend to all have limited budgets, but the ones with vision always seem to make it work. I love her videos. Gina Montana is a tough, smart, unique and talented MC that knows her Hip Hop heritage. Gina not only directs her own videos, she also does her own edit work. She does it all. The Indie artist of today must be versatile to keep the overhead low and Gina makes it work. I come across a lot of artist in my line of work and Gina clearly separates herself from the pack because she is multi talented. Take time to check out Gina Montana by going to her You-Tube page and subscribing. If you love real Hip Hop then you will love this MC who is quickly making a name for herself in the Orlando and NY market. As always I appreciate you taking the time out to read our publication.

OCS x Antigua Barracuda F.C. Continuing the Campaign to reach for the MLS (Major League Soccer) for the Orlando Lions, President Phil Rawlings invited CFBACC Board of Directors to participate of a VIP event at the Dex Image Skyline Club. The event involved City officials, Community Leaders, soccer enthusiasts and many more that are joining forces with the Orlando City to achieve their objectives. The MLS and a covered Soccer Stadium, that will attract many to Orlando, bringing more revenue in taxes and tourism. As time goes by, many more grow sympathetic to the idea, anticipating the wave of success that this will bring. Brazil is one of the main targets of this campaign, due to the enormous amount of visitors year around , and the amount of spending made by each visitor that can reach around US$ 2000 just on the first few days after arrival.

Brazilians are Soccer lovers, and the more the Orlando City is open to Brazilian athletes, sports professionals, helping the Community to identify with the team, and more Brazilian Teams visiting to play, it will be easier to bring not only all the avid sport tourists to Orlando, but also the entire community. The OCS and The City of Orlando are working hand to hand to bring this reality closer, and all Community leaders are helping. This event was very important to establish that.
