Duda Melzer Brings Online Investment To The Brazilian Media Industry

Those who know the history of the RBS media group will know the Sirotsky family has been in control of the respected news and communications company since its founding in 1957 by Mauricio Sirotsky Sobrinho. However, despite being the third generation of the Sirotsky family to take over at RBS Educardo Sirotsky Melzer, better known by the nickname Duda, has used the company as career inspiration instead of an easy ride to the top of the media industry.

The arrival of Duda as the Executive President of RBS in 2016 came after a long career in Brazil and the U.S. that allowed Melzer to learn as much as possible about global finance and new media options. After graduating from Harvard Business School Duda set out on a new career that took him to an executive position with the digital media group Box Top Media; Melzer has continued to hold different positions with various companies even after he returned to RBS in 2004 to take on a series of executive roles.

Duda Melzer is hoping to incorporate the skills he developed living and working in the U.S. into his role as Executive President of the RBS Group, which means he will look to bring more digital media to the company with its basis in newspapers, TV, and radio. Prior to taking over the top job at RBS from his uncle, Nelson Sirotsky, Duda Melzer was already a high profile executive at investment company e.Bricks that works to secure financing for the planned educational media options being created for RBS. In the future Duda Melzer hopes to make RBS a global force in digital media as he continues to interact with companies like Google in a consistent exchange of ideas and planned projects.

Spark Tank,” a spin off of the popular ABC TV show “Shark Tank”, was inspired and created by Marc Sparks and Lynne Sipiora. It is produced at Arizona State University. Social Service executives with an entrepreneurial spirit are invited to present their ideas to compete for financial backing. These ideas and projects will be judged by Marc and a panel of judges as to their worth.

Mark Sparks, whose money makes the program possible, is an entrepreneur who is creative and zealous in his desire to help people with small businesses and ideas. His career has been starting up companies and selling them to the highest bidder, and he has learned much about business from marketing to finance.

He is also excellent at communication and relationships, and it is from this background that he has had great success. He now offers young business owners financial and organizational help.

In “Spark Tank”, he analyzes the sales and profits of companies from their presentations. He then proceeds to help those with whom he is especially impressed. As a part of the deal, Marc Sparks usually gets a percentage of every company he invests in. From these investments, he has built his financial base.

The show continues to gain in popularity as the presentations meet deadlines and categories. Marc Sparks is very clear in stressing specific things that he and the judges will be looking for in the presentations.

1. The product or service must be unique.

2. There must be a promise of a return on the investment.

3. The sales data must give proof of demand and clear thinking and planning.

4. There must be a clear strategy for how money will help the venture and how this money will be used.

5. The presentation must be creative and interesting.

With this venture, Sparks is using his ideas and money for social projects. Typical of his sensitivity and generosity, is his concern for The Samaritan Inn, a personal project for the Homeless in the area. Learn more about Marc Sparks:

According to GoodReads, Marc Sparks has determined that $5,000 payed for the construction of a kennel behind the shelter for pets of homeless families; $5000 covered the cost of children’s camps and lessons so they did not need summer daycare; $5000 filled the tank of the company shuttle bus for one year, ensuring that clients without vehicles could get to work.

Recognizing that money represents solutions, is a specific ingredient of the business mind that is most valuable to the non-business world. It is the “Spark” that gives “Spark Tank” a bright spot on the horizon.

Helping others attain their Dreams, Brightens yours as Well

Nurturing a young, energetic person’s dream is a leeway to a great and brighter future. Appreciating a person’s effort motivates them to higher heights, and the good thing is, they never forget the efforts that put them at the place there are at no matter how high they go. In fact, it motivates them to pull others up to the place there are, which is an assurance of a greater future. The beginner of this gets no great credit for inspiring a great person. However, they are created for nurturing and building a generation of great people.

The Swiss startup factory is one company that can proudly take credit for this. Its co- founder and Managing Partner Mike Baur has stirred it to great heights. The company was built as a mentorship and startup financier to young people who have great ideas, mostly lined on digital technology. The world is quickly changing and adopting digital technology, and hence there is not only a great opportunity in digital technology but also a wider market for the tech, ranging from individuals to corporate and governments as well.

Baur saw the need to tap into this niche and has since impacted the lives of any young people through financing their startups and offering mentorship to them as they get into the business and entrepreneurial world. As a young person, he had the passion for banking and finance and has grown to live his dream, he once worked at a commercial apprentice at UBS and paved his way to an executive board member of a large Swiss Private Bank. The opportunity motivated him to start his entrepreneurial journey at the age of 39, where he cofounded the Swiss Startup Factory, which is the number one, independent and privately financed ICT Startup Accelerator in Switzerland. His great aim is to mentor and help the young in their startups.

The company has great like-minded individuals who work tirelessly it ensure the success of each startup, the services offered as well are lined towards the success of not only the early business venture of the young people but the success of the company as well; it needs to help many others. It has attracted the investments of great people who share in the same goals, e.g. Michael Hartweg who gave up his finance operational role in Leonteq to join the Swiss Startup Factory, he is to invest in carefully selected startups, and will earmark the startups with investors, and evaluate and coach them in their developments

Texas Girl Jennifer Walden Returns To Texas to Help Others Medically

As people complete high school and college they begin choosing their paths for their lives. Questions they ask are, “Do I want to live in my hometown or go off to another city to live”? They also ask themselves what direction they may want to go with their careers. Jennifer Walden is no exception. She did very well in high school and college. She has very good parents and excellent role models for her and now her sons. Jennifer gave birth while staying in New york. Her Manhattan boss was instrumental in getting Jennifer interested in a career in the media. Jennifer began to think how being a media commentator could help him get information out to the public. She is an authority on reconstruction surgery and the reasons why people do what they do. After eight years in Manhattan, Jennifer is now back in Texas where she belongs.

Plastic surgery and Cosmetic surgeries are lifesavers for some people. If a person is injured in a fire he or she will probably need reconstruction. A person that is burnt usually needs skin grafting. some people are lucky and can use skin from their own legs or buttocks. Other people may have to use skin from animals such as pigs. Pig skin is very useful because it is very close to the actual human skin. Pigskin has a better chance than any other type of graft except their own human skin. The skin graft will take a while to heal. The skin graft area is usually kept wrapped up until it fully heals. This makes sure there is no infection that sets in and that the skin takes.

Jennifer Walden is instrumental in explaining the process of Vaginal Rejuvenation. She also takes the time to explain what is to be expected. Jennifer is a fantastic public speaker and a great surgeon. She has recently opened the new satellite office and is now being featured in the American Airlines Magazine. Some of the more personal avenues that Jennifer checks out are things like Mommy make overs, teen plastic surgery, and minimally invasive procedures like Botox.

Nurtimost Suing Healthy Living Over Stolen Video

One of the newest and most popular weight loss companies in the country says that their rival company stole from them and is suing them as a result. The plaintiff in the case is Nutrimost. They claim that rival New York-based company, Healthy Living, stole a promotional video regarding their weight loss plan off of the Nutrimost website and posted it on their own site. They then continued to display the video on their site even after they were sent a cease and desist letter from Nutrimost’s lawyers. Healthy Living says they took the video down but Nutrimost says it was just an edited and shortened version of the original video.

Weight loss company Nutrimost files lawsuit against rival Healthy Living for allegedly stealing promotional video

Nutrimost claims that the video that Healthy Living posted on their website is a complete copy of the original. The only difference is that the word Nutrimost was removed and the original slogan “The Ultimate Weight Loss System” was replaced with the phrase “Can’t Lose Diet”. As of today, the video is not up on the Healthy Living website.

The Nutrimost Weight Loss system is a new system that is based on both technology and spiritual healing. The program uses something called the NRF or “Nutrimost Resonant Frequency” to scan the patient and determine their needs when it comes to the health and their weight loss. Some people have had great success with this weight loss system by losing up to 40 lbs. in the first month of being on the program.

Nutrimost is suing Healthy Living for $300,000 for stealing the video affecting the goodwill and reputation of the Nutrimost company. They are also asking that a court order is given that prevents Healthy Living from ever using the video, or any other stolen videos, on the website again to promote their company. Neither company could be reached for comment at the time of this article.

WEN by Chaz Works Wonders on Fine Hair

Originally reported on, Emily McClure, a brave fashion and beauty editor, decided to give the infomercial heavy WEN by Chaz a try. WEN by Chaz frequently plays on shopping networks like Total Beauty and has beautiful women with luscious, healthy hair. Tired of her own fine hair, she decided to give this hair care line a try. She specifically chose WEN by Chaz cleansing conditioner, which is a three in one shampoo, conditioner, and styling treatment.

When she chose a conditioner, she picked the sephora endorsed fig version, offering moisture, bounce, and shine. She used the recommended amount on the bottle, ten pumps. This amount is much larger than other products. The first day her hair was clean and less hair fell out. After a couple of days, it was shinier and healthier. A week later she noticed more bounce in her hair. Her recommendation was that it was worth the time if you use and style your hair regularly.

Wen hair by Chaz is a hair care line created by Chaz Dean to help his hair clients achieve their goal of healthier and more luscious hair. Chaz Dean is a famous stylist with his own studio in LA. His philosophy is to help his clients achieve the hair of their dreams and his hair services and products are both designed to achieve his goal.
