Brian Bonar Has A Passion Like No Other For The Job October 14, 2016

There are a lot of people in life that lack passion. They are without any emotion and they are simply going through the motions. They don’t get any joy out of life and that is because of their job. A lot of what people do in their lives is directly related to their job. That is the way it works, sadly.

However, there are certain people that love their job and they love their job because they know they are making a difference. They know it is not just another job. It is a job that can impact people’s lives for the better. That is a tremendous feeling.

It is a feeling that Brian Bonar, CEO and Chairman of Dalrada Financial Corporation, knows very well. He has over thirty years of work in the financial sector and he knows when it comes to finances, people are putting a lot of faith in his hands and the hands of his team.

They expect certain results. The great thing about Brian Bonar is he always delivers. He never comes up short. In fact, it is his mission to get the best results possible. Every day brings a new challenge and a new obstacle and that is what excites Brian. It might take some time, but he will figure it out.

The award for Cambridge Who’s Who® Executive of the Year in Finance is one that only goes out to two women and two men a year. Considering the number of people he was competing against, it is no small feat that Brian Bonar won this award. In fact, it was quite special, to say the least, and it made him incredibly happy.

When handing out this award, they look for three things: leadership abilities, professional accomplishments, and academic achievements. He has succeeded in all three of those areas with flying colors.

As far as the academics, he has a Ph.D., which is nothing to sneeze at, that is for sure. That is earned, not given. When it comes to professional accomplishments, I would say thirty years in the financial sector and a decade as the CEO and Chairman of Dalrada Financial Corporation is quite an accomplishment.

The one that takes the cake when it comes to this award, however, is leadership and that is something that Brian Bonar is great at, to say the least. He knows how to lead and most importantly, he likes to lead.

He remembers the people that helped him along the way and he wants to give back to others just like others gave back to him. He knows how to lead a group of men and women and get the absolute best out of them each and every day on the job.

Shared Office Spaces in New York: One Of The Products Of The New Economy September 21, 2016


When the economy changed, there was a lot of panic when it came to finding work. For one thing, a lot of people found it extremely difficult if not impossible to find a new job. As a result, some people have resorted to different means of income. Among the different means included co-working spaces, also known as shared office spaces. When people have started working in co-working spaces, they have noticed that there is a huge difference in the culture and environment compared to the traditional workplace. For one thing, there is a much more cooperative environment in the workplace compared to the old version of the office.

One very good thing to consider is that the co-working space is a place not just for one company, but multiple companies. However, the interesting thing behind that is that the co-working space rarely if ever has any conflicts. People are more able to connect with each other and enjoy their company. In the former economy, it would’ve been real hard for people to find a co-working space. Many people would have thought that it was necessary to put up with all of the drama just to support themselves. However, the past 10 years have seen a lot of changes.

For one thing, there have come to be tons of co-working spaces. They have also become very popular. For example, there is Workville. offers a very friendly and collaborative environment. To go along with the shared office space environment, they also have a lot of amenities such as a cafe, and free high speed wi-fi. Therefore, people will be able to get the work done that they need. Workville is one of the spaces that are very conducive to the success of its members. This is definitely a welcome change of pace from the regular workplace.

This is a positive classroom innovation that has started to serve as the most important connection that parents and teachers can have. Children go to school for many hours each day. These learn, eat and play. There are some elements that they can learn and recite with ease. There are other things that they may have a hard time remembering. The Class Dojo app is what makes it possible for parents to see and recap what the children are learning. The parents also get the chance to send secure messages to the parents. These are the reasons that this communication platform has evolved as a powerful connection into the classrooms around the world.

The ClassDojo app has been used in a number of countries around the world, and the popularity of the app is being shown on a global level. There are mindset videos from ClassDojo that are going viral. There have been a lot of people that have started to see the threads to better education with this app. Teachers get the chance to bond with other teachers in other school districts. This gives them a chance to discuss different teaching methods and plans that can be used to make the teaching process more effective.

This is a small and simple app has managed to become a lifesaver to a majority of teachers that may have been losing ground with students. This is the app that has motivated students to reset their minds and do something different. They are more eager to participate in classroom discussions or activities when there is a possibility that their parents will see this. It is a great community for giving parents that an inside glimpse to a world that they could not access before.

Kyle Bass Still Thinks China Is Headed For Collapse July 28, 2016

Bass started making predictions about the Chinese economy back in 2015, toward the end of the fourth quarter, and as yet those predictions have not been verified; though it does seem there are some markers which indicate Bass isn’t totally out to lunch on this one. Most significantly, the steadily freezing bond market of China.

China has a three trillion dollar bond market, and it’s quickly coming to a standstill. Bass points to this as evidence of his prior claims; though he does seem to be softening his tune a little.

Kyle Bass predicted that there was a forty to fifty percent chance of economic implosion from the Chinese quarter by the end of 2016. He said it was definitely going to happen within the next two to three years, but that Americans should expect the drop to come by the end of this year. He qualified this statement by saying that there probably wouldn’t be a “Lehman Brothers Moment”, that China wouldn’t experience “Armageddon”, but that the government would very likely be forced into devaluing the currency, which would end up dropping the United States economy by a factor of about twenty percent.

The thing is, it’s July right now, and Bass has yet to be fully vindicated in his prediction. Sure, the bond market isn’t doing well, but it’s more “cold” than it is “frozen”. Since Bass has around a billion tied up in his bet against the Chinese economy, he’s also got incentive to help goad American investors into restraining their investiture in the company. Bass has a media platform to affect the economy from, given to him when he short-sold his holdings related to sub-prime lending prior the 2008 collapse. He became famous for that, and since then has become a regularly received voice on the international economic stage.

But Bass also supports a socialist despot in Argentina, his home country. Christina Fernandez de Kirchner, who has defaulted Argentina twice in thirteen years, never hears a negative word from Bass regarding her financial decisions. And that’s not to mention his pseudo-humanitarian group CAD, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs, who uses public sympathy and chicanery to force stock-drops Bass can short-sell. The man has some clever schemes up his sleeve, but they tend to be based around under-ethical practices.

Healthy Living steals promotional video from Nutrimost, but ends up in Federal Court July 26, 2016

Healthy Living has been accused of stealing a promotional video from its rival’s website, and placing it on their own, can’ The promotional video reportedly stolen was over the revolutionary weight loss program Nutrimost has introduced to the public.

The video on Healthy Living’s website is strikingly similar to Nutrimost’s, with customer testimonials remaining as well as those from Dr. Ray Wisniewski, the founder of the weight loss program for Nutrimost. Furthermore, and reference to Nutrimost was replaced with that of the “Can’t Lose Diet”, a weight loss program by Healthy Living.

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

Both videos claim that patients on the diet will lose between 25-45 pounds of weight in 40 days or less. Patients will also never have to feel hungry or even exercise while on the system. No hormones are introduced to the patient, and there are no harmful drugs that have to be administered.

Healthy Living continued playing the video despite receiving a cease-and-desist letter, while the only change to the video being it was shorter in length. Since then, the video has not been shown on can’

Nutrimost wants at least $300,000 in damages over the theft of their video, and they also want the courts to bar Healthy Living from ever playing the video again. Dr. Wisniewski, the author of the program from Nutrimost, says the weight loss system is totally safe with doctors consistently monitoring their patients.

This is a weight loss system from Nutrimost that has people raving. It is not uncommon for people of either gender to lose 40 pounds in as little as 40 days without any exercise whatsoever.

Not only do people lose the weight, they are taught how to keep the weight off. Doctors teach their patients how to lock in their weight loss and keep it off forever.

An Entrepreneur on the Right Path With Eucatex July 21, 2016

With the Olympic games around the corner and all eyes on Brazil, it’s becoming increasingly obvious that there are issues with sustainability within the country. The industry with the most impact within sustainability is likely those that deal with deforestation. With the Amazon being logged at an alarming rate, it becomes increasingly important for sustainability paradigms – and businesses – to gain traction in the region.

Luckily, a business owner and entrepreneur from Brazil is trying to make that happen. Mr. Flavio Maluf, president of two major companies based in the country, Eucatex and Grand Foods is a man with a vision for the future. Recently he addressed the growing controversial idea of technology and children. While some believe that new technologies are leading to distraction and loss of enjoyment in certain areas of life, Mr. Maluf discussed how technology has the opportunity, if we allow it to be so, to accelerate learning and education. Technology is unlikely to go away, so incorporating it into optimizing how we learn is an essential step, implied the business owner.

Eucatex is a company that has been generated around the idea of minimizing waste, and maximizing the use of recycled materials such as wood and plastic. They have environmental policies such as requiring to identify the source of all wood products used in production of goods, and have socioeconomic view points that are to the advantage of the surrounding area.

A large portion of the company’s goods are produced from recycled products and their is a meticulous inspection of how to produce at the most efficient, and environmentally friendly manner.

Since Mr. Maluf is a business oriented, he additionally has given insight into larger moves within the investment and business world, including discussing topics such as the merger between Allergan and Pfizer. While Flavio gain’s momentum in the business and investing world, it’s likely we’ll see him comment and perhaps even be involved in more of these larger shifts in business and economic paradigms.  Read more about what Flavio has done on LinkedIn.
