Bruno Fagali — Five Red Flags Of Anticorruption

Bruno Fagali has posted some interesting information about the practices in advertising. He says that there are five telling signs of unethical advertising. When a company hits all of these five points they can be considered to be conducting unethical practices. The signs are easy to spot. Most scandals that involve ethical corruption have an advertising agency involved. Because of the prominence of corruption and the involvement of various agencies, Brazil has implemented the anticorruption compliance program.

Bruno Fagali is a champion of anticorruption compliance program and a main supporter. As a prestigious attorney who specializes in human rights he has made his name by facing large corporations and bringing an end to their ethical corruption. Fagali is the founder of Fagali Advocacy.

The five red flags of ethical corruption that Bruno Fagali has found to be common across advertising agencies are the benchmark for determining whether or not a company has breached the anticorruption compliance program. The first red flag is intermediation of vehicle payments by the advertiser according to This means the advertiser uses an intermediary party to funnel payments through in financing their campaigns. This is a red flag because the advertiser is circumventing the traditional and lawful methods of payment in an effort to avoid scrutiny or taxation. The second red flag is media assignment criteria. This is also known as media planning. An advertising agency will supply their own media outlets for the advertising campaign and the client will rely on these outlets for their advertising. This can become unethical when the media outlets are in cooperation with the advertising agency. Commissions or other compensation can be arranged between the advertising agency and their selected media outlet that may put the client at a disadvantage. The third red flag is incentive plans. These incentive plans can be used by the larger advertising agencies to place the smaller firms at a major disadvantage. The plans are used to provide their clients with a lower price and undercut the smaller firms with lower resources. The fourth red flag is a relationship with the advertiser office and employees. These relationships can become conflicts of interest based upon the level of interaction between agents. Advertising agencies can use the relationship to give their clients gifts and take them on expensive trips. These are unethical because they foster a strong sense of obligation to the advertising agency and the relationship may not be in the best interest of the client. The fifth red flag is fees on external services and supplies.

US Money Reserve Explains How To Be Protected From Inflation

US Money Reserve, Inc. is an Austin, Texas-based firm that was founded about 10 years ago. It is a financial services company that helps people add precious metal to their portfolios. The president of this firm, Philip N. Diehl, was once the Chief of Staff of the US Treasury Department. He was the creator of one of the US Mint’s most popular initiatives which was the 50 States Quarter program of the 1990s.

The experts at US Money Reserve recently explained inflation. Basically, inflation is the result of many things getting more expensive over time. The current inflation rate is 2.1% but many expect it to increase due to higher wages and other factors. The Bureau of Statistics measures thousands of items that are commonly bought by people in the United States to determine what the current Consumer Price Index (CPI) is.

Inflation reduces the value of your money which is a bad thing for most people. When the nation is experiencing high inflation the value of money can rapidly drop. Too little inflation is also dangerous as people stop spending money due to knowing things will be less expensive in the future. This leads to a recession in the economy until inflation picks back up.

There are ways to protect yourself from high inflation. The key way is to diversify your portfolio beyond the US dollar. If all of your assets move along with the dollar then high inflation will eat away at all of your net worth. The purchase of storable commodities is the best way to diversify, the experts at US Money Reserve say. They don’t move in concert with the US dollar.

There are several commodities one can consider for their portfolio. This includes the stock of foreign companies, natural resources, and precious metals such as gold. Including these types of assets in your portfolio will help protect your overall net worth once inflation starts picking up in America.

Philip Diehl has pointed to gold in particular as a way to protect you from inflation. He says that it out-performs everything else when inflation starts to get high. Other assets crash during these times, such as company stocks, but gold increases in value. He says that over time gold has increased in value faster than the CPI. This means that not only does it help you preserve your capital but it’s also something that can help make your capital grow.

Daniel Taub Reflects Ending His Career as Israel’s U.K. Ambassador

Daniel Taub, Israel’s Ambassador to the United Kingdom is soon departing his office after four years of serving graciously in the position.

As he leaves, Taub will depart with relations between the two countries being better than ever despite the serious issues he had to face: the Israeli-Palestinian conflict, Iran’s nuclear goals and European Anti-Semitism.

As Taub is leaving office, he took the time to share the more personal aspects of his life in the U.K., the country he’s leaving.

As a Manchester city fan with six kids of his own that saw his first London musical only a few weeks ago, Taub made several observations about his tenure there.

1) Don’t look back. Taub notes that his embassy accomplished a lot in four years. They established outreaches in Britain. A new information center was established in Wales and Scotland and the center was expanded in Manchester during his tenure.

2) What you read affects your outlook. Taub was asked to give a lecture on Israel’s historical contribution to literature in England. He read books to prepare. One of those books was written by another one of Israel’s ambassadors to England, Yehuda Avner. Avner wrote a fictional story of moving Jews out of Nazi Germany to establish Israel ten years earlier. Taub is now reading books by Stefan Zweig.

3) Don’t restrain yourself, overindulge. Taub has worked tirelessly for long hours and not had much time to enjoy the pleasures England offers. Now, on his final days of holiday, he and his family are taking in the English musicals. They went to see High Society and will see Les Miserable’s. Taub’s over English indulgence is Cadbury chocolate. Read more: Daniel Taub | Crunchbase and Daniel Taub | Ideamench

4) Daniel Taub has taken advantage of speaking to both friends and foes. As ambassador to Israel, Taub notes that many people from all walks of life willingly accept an invitation to meet him. He met the Queen in 2011. During their meeting he wore his yarmulke and recited the blessing.

5) A multidimensional person has an advantage. Daniel Taub was born in England and moved to Israel in his twenties. In Israel, he served in the IDF as a combat medic.

He later wrote speeches for the Israeli President, Chaim Herzog. In 2011, Taub was appointed ambassador. At one point, Taub was asked if he felt more English or Israeli. Taub remembers the England of his youth and thus stands in line when other Brits don’t.

6) Taub’s family comes first. It has been had for Taub’s family to have two kids in the Israeli army while he, his wife and four younger kids are in England watching news stories of the conflict in Gaza on TV.

The whole family looks forward to him continuing his career in the Foreign Service and the family in one place, home in Israel.

How Roberto Santiago Found Success With Two Malls In Joao Pessoa

Roberto Santiago was born in Joao Pessoa, Brazil on July 16, 1958. He earned an undergraduate degree in business administration at the University of Joao Pessoa before starting his professional career at Cafe Santa Rosa. At this company he learned how to manufacture items, knowledge he took with him when he started his own business. His business designed and manufactured cartons made out of cardboard that other companies bought to package their products in.

In 1987, Roberto Santiago decided to enter the world of real estate. He bought a large plot of land close to the Atlantic coast in Joao Pessoa and had the plans for a mall drawn up. The mall took two years to build, opening its doors in 1989. It has 280 retail stores as well as banks, a gym, and a college. There is also a movie theater as well as a gaming area that has 200 machines in it plus a bowling alley as well as an area to play laser tag.

Since opening Manaira Shopping in 1987, Roberto Santiago has made it a focus to offer as many different types of restaurant experiences as he can. He has expanded this section of the mall three times and it now has everything from fast food joints to high-end cuisine served in it. Among the most recent high-end restaurants to open have been Waynes, Capital Steakhouse, and Espaco Gourmet.

Another section of the mall that Roberto Santiago added was Domus Hall in the 2000s. Domus Hall is primarily for concerts but, like with much of the rest of Manaira Shopping, he wanted it be versatile to hold many other types of events. The main floor of Domus Hall can accommodate 4000 sitting people and 10,000 standing. It has been soundproofed and features air-conditioning. Beyond concerts, Roberto Santiago has also attracted other events to Domus Hall like exhibits, fairs, conferences, graduation ceremonies, and weddings along with their receptions. The floor below this main area has rooms for more private events and features a number of bars.

With his huge success as the founder and chief executive officer of Manaira Shopping, Roberto Santiago launched another mall in Joao Pessoa in 2013. This is Mangiera Shopping and it is very similar in scope to Manaira Shopping. He has said that he placed Mangiera Shopping at the other end of the city so that the two malls wouldn’t conflict with one another. This move paid off as Manera Shopping saw no drop in the number of customers entering its doors when Mangiera Shopping started doing business.

Roberto Santiago’s Mall is the Best for Last Minute Shopping

With Christmas and similar times of the year, there comes a point when it is the last minute. This can be one of the stressful things to deal with. One of the most common issues with last minute shopping is that a lot of the items are pretty much out of the store. Another issue to deal with is that it can be crowded in the last minute since the stores are filled with people who are also doing a little bit of last minute shopping. Fortunately, not every facility is going to have the last minute issues that people have come to expect.


One good place to go for last minute shopping is Manaira Shopping. One of the reasons that it is the best place to go for last minute shopping is that it is a large mall that has plenty of different stores. Therefore, it is easy to find something that is unique and even better than a gift that a family member wanted. The best part is that the family member is most likely to enjoy it if it is the right item. With all of the interesting stores in the mall, one can find something that is not only going to please the family member, but also make him forget the item he originally wanted.


Even though the mall is mostly going to be closed on Christmas day, people can go to the movies on Christmas day and enjoy some of the latest releases. Roberto Santiago has made sure that some of the greatest theaters have come forward in the mall. Cinepolis is head and shoulders above other theaters because it offers more than big screens and popcorn. Customers can enjoy a full meal while they are enjoying the movies that they have wanted to see.


Manaira Shopping has been created for the fun it can bring. Every category that a mall is known for is exemplified in this particular mall. People can find the mainstream stores in the mall while looking at the more unusual items. Manaira Shopping is always filled with something that is matched to individual tastes.
