Trabuco Souring High With Bradesco

     When a child is born, there is no way of telling what the child will become, you can never now or tell what they are designed to be in the future. However by design, we are all born leaders in our own right, but getting to the point of a leadership role is determined by completely different attributes, which have actual and visible results. This is the same case when it comes to Luiz Carlos . Born in Sao Paulo in the year 1951, he started his journey to leadership in the year 1963, where he worked as a clerk at Bradesco. His inborn leadership skills propelled him to work hard at the position he was given at the time, and he went on to do the same at every other position he was promoted to.

When the long-standing president of the company resigned at the age of 91, he recommended Trabuco for the position. It is known that apart from the fact that they worked together and in the same company for long,Luiz and Brandao are friends and acquaintances. However, based on Trabuco’s excellent track record at the company Brandao’s decision for Trabuco to take over was justified. Apart from his hard work, knowledge, and determination, he had worked under Brandao for over eight years. During his time with Brandao, he gained vast experience in managerial skills and strategies that were working.

For people who have been in business the longest, you can relate to the fact that backing sectors are the most competitive of business, and stay on top means staying in business and controlling the economy. As for Bradesco, despite going through a few bumps of the road, it has managed to stay afloat and rise to the top of the financial sector due to its leadership. Trabuco’s track record of success for every position he has worked has propelled the bank to a significant height of success thus as Trabuco went up the ladder the bank’s success also went up. Hence the saying “any companies or businesses success is as good as the leadership within it.”

A Brief History of Fragali’i Airport

     Isolated within the waters of the Pacific Ocean, south of the equator sits two large islands: Upolu and Savali’i. These two islands together make up the country of Samoa, a nation rich in ancient Polynesian culture and exotic exports. Snug on the island of Upolu sits a small but vital airfield: Fragali’i Airport (FGI).

Fragali’i is a small village just outside of Apia, the capital and the largest city of Samoa. The village’s airport has been owned by Polynesian Airlines since 1971 when the Samoa government sparked an interest to incite more tourism on the two exotic islands.

Throughout the years, the Samoa government has done business with other airlines such as Ansett Airlines and Polynesian Blue, with hopes that their flight traffic would increase revenue and more tourism. The airport closed temporally and in July 2002, reopened. What was once a dangerous grass airstrip was now paved and newly remodeled.

After intricate business arrangements in 2005, however, the government soon found itself spending half of their annual budget on flights to and from the country, not as a final destination as officials have hoped for. Not only was the Samoa government losing massive amounts of revenue, but they and the villagers alike had growing concerns about the safety and the amount of noise produced. Fragali’i Airport was shut down later that year.

Although the same concerns remained, the airport was reopened in July 2009 by Polynesian Airlines, resuming flights to Pago Pago and American Samoa. Since 2012 Fragali’i Airport has been utilized by Virgin Samoa, which was previously Polynesian Blue, and is a branch of the larger Virgin Australia brand. Samoa Airways, previously known as Polynesian Airlines, also has busy traffic from the airport, flying routes to and from different islands in the surrounding area.

Despite its unstable history, the Samoa government has been able to maintain a steady profit off Fagali’i Airport, making it an essential asset to the country’s financial well-being.

Obscure to the western world, Samoa has become a popular destination for patrons residing in Australia and New Zealand. There are tons of luxury hotels, museums, and events located just minutes from the airport. The locals are described as friendly and anxious to share their culture through music, food, and art.

Match Wants to Bring Whitney Wolfe Down

     Whitney Wolfe is the founder of Bumble. She created the app to be part of a social network and help people make the right decisions no matter what they were looking for in a date or a friend. Women get to choose who they want to talk to and that’s part of what made the app different from other apps people could use. For Whitney Wolfe, the app gives her a chance to show women they can put the power back in their hands when it comes to dating. They don’t need to worry about what men are doing or how they’re trying to get women to just feel uncomfortable. There is very little harassment on Bumble because of how Whitney Wolfe set it up.

While the app is for dating, people can use it for other purposes. Bumble BFF allows women to find friends and connect with them. In a world that’s run by social media and people using their phones, Whitney Wolfe wanted women to have a place to connect with other women. She made this part of the app similar to the dating site, but it highlights the friendship qualities in each woman who tries to use it.

Even though there are things Whitney Wolfe must do to help people understand how the app works, she knows what it takes to give people the chance they need to really feel good about dating. Match wants to take that away from her and all the people who use the app, though. When she wouldn’t let Match buy her out, they started taking drastic measures that prevented people from trying to do things the right way. In fact, Whitney Wolfe is now facing a lawsuit because Match thinks she copied them and they want to bring her down so she’s forced to sell her company.

Since Match is Tinder’s parent company, they see where Whitney Wolfe was trying to steal information from their business. She used to work for Tinder. While she was just in the marketing department, Match things she spent time there looking at what the app was doing. They thought she stole their ideas and was using them as her own. She didn’t do that. In fact, she worked for Tinder but she started Bumble because she didn’t want people to only have Tinder to rely on. She wanted to change the world of app dating and make it easier.
