The thriving economy of Brazil transformed its population distribution. The simple rural workers have changed to become city dwelling business people and entrepreneurs. Roberto Santiago is one of them, being able to find his success in the shopping and retail industry. Born in the city of Joao Pessoa, Roberto Santiago never imagined himself being a shopping mall tycoon someday. He initially worked as a writer, and as a proud Brazilian, he wrote things about his country. He became a reputable writer after writing a lot of articles about Brazil, and he garnered a lot of readers. When internet use became widespread, Roberto Santiago decided to put up his own blog and started writing online. His followers exponentially grew, and a small fan base started to rise. Aside from his writing stint, he also worked as a director, before finally becoming a shopping mall tycoon.

 

In 1987, Roberto Santiago found a vacant patch of lot in his home city of Joao Pessoa. He immediately contacted the person who wanted to sell the lot, and he purchased it. He is thinking on how he should develop the patch of lot, and then the idea of developing it into a mall crossed his mind. Two years later, the Manaira Mall opened to the public, and it became a crowd favorite. It was considered to be the largest mall in the state of Paraiba at that time, and up until this day, no one have beaten the record held by Manaira Mall for decades. Since they opened in 1989, the mall has gone under several renovations and expansion. One of the most recent expansions inside the mall is the creation of the Gourmet Section, opened in 2014. The Gourmet Section has a collection of restaurants serving different dishes from around the world. Roberto Santiago is inviting chefs and restaurant owners around the world to visit his mall and try setting up their branches inside the Manaira Mall. The first restaurant which heeded his call was the Capital Steak House. The restaurant became an instant hit among mall goers, because of the delicious food that they serve.

 

The mall is divided into sections – the food court, cinemas, entertainment areas, bowling alley, game stations, parks, financial institutions, fitness centers, and even an educational institution. On the mall’s rooftop sits the Domus Hall, known all throughout Brazil because of its popularity among international artists. The hall can seat 8,000 people, and it has the latest equipment producing high quality audio and sound.

 

The Manaira Mall is not just a symbol of Paraiba’s economic rise, but it also symbolizes the socialization and hospitality of the local people. The mall has been a part of the daily lives of the locals, and everything they need is found inside. Presently, Roberto Santiago is planning to build another mall, hoping that it will be as successful as the Manaira Mall.

     Hotels play a very important role in determining the choice of your next vacation destination. One of the individuals making it easy for tourists to choose their hotels is Mr. Shiraz Boghani. For those who have little idea of who Mr. Boghani is, he is the chairman of Splendid Hospitality Group and the current Hotelier of the Year as per the 2016 awards.

The annual Hotelier of the Year Award is an award ceremony that brings together a number of hoteliers from all part of the world to compete for the covetous top spot. In addition to the competitors, the award ceremony also brings together top judges to assess these achievements. Last year’s ceremony was braced by a line-up of judges comprising of Amit Roy who is a renowned journalist; renowned investment banker, Jitesh Gadhia; Rishi Sunak the MP for Richmond (Yorkshire) and executive editor for AMG, Shailesh R Solank.

Mr. Boghani, the hotelier of 2016, is quite experienced in the hospitality industry with more than three decades of experience. In his portfolio, Shiraz Boghani owns and manages at least 19 hotels in the UK. Despite the achievements of Shiraz Boghani, the entrepreneur is a qualified and chartered accountant with an eye and passion for the hotel industry.

Shiraz Boghani moved to the UK in 1969 from Kenya where he trained as an accountant in a small firm of Chartered Accountants. After working for some years with the firm, he moved to KPMG formerly known as Thomson McLintock & Co. It is at this point that Shiraz Boghani developed the passion for the hotel industry.

Growing up in adversity can either strengthen or weaken a man’s resolve. For George Soros, the injustices he witnessed while growing up as a Hungarian Jew during the Second World War instilled in him a desire to fight injustices everywhere. Consequently, after amassing a considerable fortune through his Soros Fund Management hedge fund, he has gone on to invest a significant portion of it towards helping millions access basic rights and freedoms. Today, he not just a man with a big bank account – rather, he is the savior of many previously disadvantaged people in all corners of the globe.

George Soros has for the last 30-plus years been engaged in political action all around the world. He has largely done so through the Open Society Foundations – a grouping of organizations engaged in the struggle for democracy in their countries and regions. Since 1984, he has provided more than $12 billion to support these Open Society Foundations. In turn, the foundations have been able to champion progressive democratic reforms in their countries, including stopping the discrimination of minorities, advocating for same-sex marriages and so forth.

George Soros’s recent political action in the United States has pitted him against the current president, Donald Trump. Soros has considered some of President’s Trump’s policies to be too radical and consequently opposed his election during the campaign period in late 2016. In fact, he donated tens of millions towards the campaigns of President Trump’s opposing candidate and party, Hillary Clinton, and the Democratic Party. However, his opposition of President Trump came at a great price when he eventually won the 2016 election. It is estimated that he lost approximately $1 billion following the win. Be that as it may, Soros being the principle man that he has not wavered in his opposition to Donald Trump and his radical policies despite the obvious risk to his business interests.

As a man who understands adversity himself, George Soros took up philanthropy very early in his career. Towards the end of the 1970s, he was already providing scholarships to black students in then apartheid South Africa. He has since invested in dozens more philanthropic projects including his most recent pledge to fight for the rights and freedoms of refugees and immigrants all around the world.

Soros’s ideas, experiences, and insights are readily available to members of the public through a raft of books and articles he has published over the last few decades. These books and articles number more than ten and cover a diverse range of topics including politics, economics, and trading. The wealth of information contained in this publications has seen them being used by institutions such as schools, political foundations and even sections of governments.


Mikhail Blagosklonny has an unrivaled role in the race against aging and in the field of medical research. Rosewell Park Cancer Institute accommodates this professor of Oncology who has carried out numerous investigations on cancer and its therapies, and also aging. He advocates Rapamycin is a cancer drug, for increasing the lifespan of humans. Rapamycin, or Sirolimus as it’s also called (it is, however, known has Rapamune in the pharmacy market), is a drug that can be used in preventing rejection of organ transplant. It has more uses, but majorly famous as a cancer drug.

However, before we talk about Mikhail Blagosklonny in detail, let’s get to know about the drug, Rapamycin, he strongly advocates for aging. Why is Rapamycin so delicate to cancer and aging? Some of the reasons why it is one of the best drugs available now is because of its immunosuppressant properties (i.e., a drug that helps for successful transplant of an organ) combined with its low toxic level towards the kidney; it is also valuable for coating of the coronary stents in order to prevent restenosis in the arteries after a balloon angioplasty procedure. The drug is invaluable in the treatment of cancer, Tuberous Sclerosis Complex (a congenital disorder able to cause tumor growth in the brain, kidneys, etc.), Facial angiofibromas (rash/spots mostly found on the nose and also cheeks of Tuberous Sclerosis Complex sufferer); and to increase longevity, this is where Mikhail Blagosklonny’s name pops up always. Mikhail Blagklosklonny is well-known for his work on what he named the anti-aging drug of the future, where he is utilizing the regenerative effects of Rapamycin to treat diseases that come with aging and possibly even extend the lifespan of humans.

Mikhail Blagosklonny is a professor, researcher, philanthropist and famously involved in keeping up alive and ensuring people around the world get access to the best treatment regardless of their financial standing. He concerns himself specifically with cancer and aging, and finding the connection that exists between the two. The topics that Mikhail has picked to research on are of much interest to the medical field. His goal is to find an effective and efficient way to treat cancer that would involve less pain and expenses as the current treatments. He’s bent on finding out a way to eliminate cancerous cells from the body without destroying the normal cells in the body of the patient.

A lot of progress has already been made in his study, and this has created more areas for other researchers to explore. He’s influential and pivotal to the medical field; he serves as an inspiration to his students and his colleagues in the medical area who hope to further his research on cancer treatment and saving humankind from aging.

The anti-aging drug is a research that is still under development, and it is already showing great promises, as it has been featured in countless articles and newsletters about medicine as one of the most essential researches in Oncology. One thing is for sure: Mikhail has already changed medication forever with his work.

From a young age, Jim Larkin observed the way workers were mistreated. He would ask many questions that went unanswered and some of those who suffered this maltreatment were his parents.

His parents were dock workers who relied on the little they earned to provide for the family. Living in the slums of Liverpool taught a lot of lessons about life and this motivated him to pursue the rights of workers. The first step before he joined workers unions was to get a job at the Liverpool docks.

Jim Larkin had little formal education, so he could not be employed at a higher position than the one his parents held. This chance to work at the dock brought him close to the people and he also suffered the maltreatment many complained about. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.irishexaminer.com/lifestyle/artsfilmtv/books/the-definitive-biography-of-big-jim-larkin-372254.html

As a progressive young man who was also a committed socialist, Jim Larkin held the belief that all workers had to be treated fairly, so he became a member of the National Union of Dock Workers, where he took up a full-time assignment as an organizer. Joining the union availed a ripe opportunity that he would use to push for the rights of other workers.

While working as an organizer, he championed a number of strikes, but the union was not particularly happy with his approach, which they termed as militant. Therefore, the union decided to transfer him to Dublin in 1907. But this did not quell his aggression towards fighting for labor rights as he came up with another union called the Irish Transport and General Workers Union.

His aim while creating this union was to get all workers to support the course of fighting for their labor rights. He would organize strikes. His success at managing these unions further motivated him, and the support he had amassed among workers also acted as a boost to his belief in equal rights. Read more: James Larkin | Biography

After this, he formed another movement that he called the Irish Labor Party that aggressively held strikes to agitate for better conditions and pay for the workers. This is the union that brought his effort to the limelight of the world as it championed heated strikes.

One of the most remembered strikes the union championed is the Dublin Lockout that lasted about eight months, and more than 100,000 workers were part of the strike. James Larking also responded when the World War I broke. He moved to the U.S. where he would raise funds to stop the British.
