The Story Of Neogama And Alexandre Gama’s Early Years

     Alexandre Gama is an esteemed advertising figure that primarily creates television commercials and videos for big-name businesses and organizations. Most of Gama’s work comes from high-paying, always-trusting customers across Brazil’s metropolitan areas, though the top-notch talent also makes ads intended to be displayed in the United States.

Just a few of the big brands Alexandre Gama commonly works with include BMW, Old Spice, Johnnie Walker, IKEA, and Levi’s, among countless others.

Arguably the most important stepping stone Alexandre Gama found in front of himself on the path to success in his favorite field of work – advertising and marketing – was getting hired by one of planet Earth’s best advertising agencies, Standard Ogilvy & Mather. Thanks to Mr. Gama’s willingness to improve his ability to speak and write English, not to mention his get-up-and-go attitude as it relates to the ease he handled having to move from Brazil to the northeast United States of America.

His stint with Ogilvy & Mather lasted from 1982 to 1990, after which he worked for a then-unknown agency named DM9. From 1990 to 1994, Alexandre Gama worked so hard that he brought more awards to DM9 than any other advertorial copywriter in the nation of Brazil.

In 1996, Mr. Gama further managed to land yet another job with one of the world’s best advertising agencies, Young & Rubicam. Believe it or not, even though Y&R was likely able to recruit virtually any candidate its executives wanted their collective hands on, Gama was simultaneously hired into three positions: Chief Content Officer, Chief Executive Officer, and Official Ranking Global Board Member.

After spending a relatively short, three-year bid with Young & Rubicam, Alexandre Gama decided to branch off, be self-employed, and create what would become the fastest-growing agency in Brazil – Neogama.

The Goal to End Citizens United

     During the year 2010, there was a very important case heard by the Justices of the Supreme Court. In that case, Citizens United sued the E.F.C. over being banned from distributing a video meant to sway public opinion within 60 days of an election. Before the ruling, only private citizens could participate in political speech meant to sway opinions within that time period. In their ruling, the accenting Justices said that the freedom of speech under the first amendment also applies to corporations, labor unions, and other similar entities. This ruling opened up the floodgates on political campaign financing because giving money is considered a form of giving assent to a political candidate. Through Super PACs, giant corporations and the special interest groups they belong to are able to dump endless supplies of cash into the coffers of any politician who will do their bidding. That bidding comes in the form of voting for or against legislation that will benefit the corporations regardless of how it will affect the American people.

Luckily not everyone in Washington is corrupted by the deep pockets of big business, and there are those who are trying to change things. End Citizens United is a grassroots Political Action Committee that was formed in 2015 to fight against the ramifications of the Citizens United ruling. The not-for-profit is led by Tiffany Muller and under her has raised almost $35 million to fund the campaigns of candidates who want to end the big money debacle in Washington. What’s even more astounding than the amount they’ve raised is how they do it. The average donation amount to End Citizens United is only $14. That means regular Americans are funding this action, not some big corporate interest that only wants to exploit it.

There are quite a few congressmen who have no qualms about taking special interest money in return for favorable votes on legislation, and End Citizens United is hard at work pointing them out with their “Big Money 20” list of the worst offenders. These are people who flagrantly abuse the loophole made by the Citizens United case to line their pockets with every piece of gold they can. There are famous names on their list like Paul Ryan and Ted Cruz who have voted against campaign finance or voted for the interests of their donors over and over again. There are also less-known people like Duncan Hunter who tried to cut all funding to the House Office of Congressional Ethics as they were investigating him for illicitly spending campaign donations on personal expenditures including overseas trips and video games.

Dr. Saad Saad on Achieving a Successful Life and Career

Dr. Saad Saad recently retired from his position as Co-Medical Director of the Hovnanian Children optical after decades of service in the medical field. Originally from Kuwait, Palestine, Dr. Saad Saad aspired to work in architecture an constructing like one of his older brothers. He did work in the area for some time before dedicating himself entirely to medicine and pediatric surgery. Dr. Saad Saad often jokes that he decided to change careers because of the air conditioning in the operating rooms.

 

Dr. Saad Saad achieved his education at the Cairo University. He attended the medical school and achieved the second highest score among his peers. His career started in an entirely different way thanks to a chance he took on an exam in another country that would allow him to train and study in the United States. Dr. Saad Saad fed on Cairo, Egypt to Beirut, Lebanon. He spent his last savings on the ticket to take the ECFMG exam. Passing that exam changed his career before it had even started and so Dr. Saad Saad got a train ticket to the U. S. where he completed his medical education.

 

While Dr. Saad Saad was studying and training in the United States, he was based in Charleston, SC. There he got to work under the leadership of Dr. H. Biemann Othersen. He taught Dr. Saad Saad about pediatric surgery but also some of the most important principles of being in that line of work. According to Dr. Saad Saad, the most valuable lesson he learned was that race, religion, and status have no pay on the operating table. It must always be him and the child’s life he is supposed to save or improve.

 

Later on, Dr. Saad Saad became certified by the USA Board of Pediatric Surgery. He also patented two developments and worked on several surgical procedures that are taught in textbooks today. Through his career, Dr. Saad Saad was dedicated to his job and went on eigh Medical Missions to Jerusalem. He saved and helped hundreds of children, performing complex surgical procedures for free. Dr. Saad Saad believes that those trips are one of the highlights of his career.

 

A large part of his 40 years of practice was at the K Hovnanian Children Hospital. Dr. Saad Saad worked as Sergion in Chief as well as a Collaborative Medical Director. The K Hovnanian Children hospital is a part of the Hackensack Meridian Health Care System. It is based at the Jersey Shore University – Medical Center.

 

Dr. saad Saad believes that real success comes with hard work. He wishes to inspire others with big goals by his own life starting from a small Palestinian town to becoming an accomplished pediatric surgeon.

Pro-Reform Candidates Back by End Citizens United

     During the 2009 poll survey, the Public Policy Polling revealed that Senator Kay Bailey Hutchison is well ahead of Governor Rick Perry by 25 percent. Afterwards, a survey from Rasmussen Reports showed Governor Perry ahead with 46 percent to Senator Hutchison’s 36 percent. The final result was Perry won without much excess.

Now a Public Policy Polling survey is presenting Democrat bet Beto O’Rourke leading Senator Ted Cruz, which is 45 percent and 37 percent respectively – an eight points difference. End Citizens United paid for the survey. However, the survey numbers for O’Rourke and Cruz are similar to the other surveys before. And Beto O’Rourke is more or less like any other Democrat bet. As per Public Policy Polling, most people surveyed had their view about Ted Cruz, which came out with 38 percent in favor of him and 49 percent are not. But the survey on O’Rourke showed that 61 percent have nothing to say about him.

To provoke a more definite answer from the public, survey questions at a later part became more blatantly forthright like – will Ted Cruz be more responsive to his big campaign donors or the ordinary Texan?

To fuel the campaign more, some ads specifically say that Beto O’Rourke has not taken any money from PACS and that his campaign funds came from ordinary individuals. So many will conclude that since this is the case, O’Rourke will work for the ordinary man from Texas and not some specials individuals or group in Washington. While Ted Cruz, on the other hand, received $1.3 million from business PACS, and he voted a huge tax break for them. So in this kind of scenario, if Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke are both running for the Senate, who would the ordinary Texan vote for?

By far O’Rourke’s lead was only 43 percent to 41 percent, and no other survey has indicated that Beto O’Rourke will be able to win the Senatorial election. However, Ted Cruz does have ratings that are unfavorable, and surveys indicated he might lose the race since his image from the 2016 Republican presidential challenge was not desirable.

End Citizens United is a political action committee that supports Democrat candidates who have favored the campaign reform program. Its funds come from the grassroots – meaning the resources that ECU uses to support or back Democrat candidates come from ordinary Americans and not some special groups that have some vested interests in politics or otherwise.

End Citizens United was organized on March 1, 2015, to contend with large groups that fund political campaigns so the election results would go their way. The primary goal of End Citizens United is to prevent the use of money as the factor that runs the election or any political campaign and to ensure that pro-reform candidates get elected to office.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi proves that American Dream is still alive, in Brazil

     The American Dream is increasingly viewed among the disaffected populace of the United States as a child’s fantasy. The realities of crushing wealth inequality, ghettos as dysfunctional as the most putrid Haitian slum and a public school system that is the laughing stock of the entire developed world have begun to take a dire toll on the mojo of the once-boisterous American psyche.

But even as America’s melting pot converts into the bed pan of a failed empire, the proposition nation is able to export more than oil wars and trashy consumerist culture. The one proposition that America has contributed to the good of the Earth’s peoples may be the American Dream – a quaint notion that hard work and determination are more important in deciding one’s station in life than some feudal caste into which they were, by accident, born.

Although the American Dream may be as dead as the attendees at the Constitutional Convention, abroad, it lives on in unlikely places. Countries that Uncle Sam once hardly deigned to scoff at for their lowliness now threaten the very primacy that the Monroe Doctrine had established as geopolitical fact for more than 200 years. Countries like Mexico and Brazil, once considered fallow malaria swamps peopled by half-dressed savages and highwaymen are now rising miraculously to become regional leaders in terms both economic and cultural.

Brazil, in particular, has undergone incredible growth and advancement over the last 50 years. Once the third-world fiefdom of tyrants and brutal caudillos, Brazil has rapidly industrialized and modernized its economy, converting it into the largest economy in Latin America, with one of the highest per-capita GDPs in the region.

With this unprecedented growth has come rich opportunity. Perhaps no one exemplifies the rise of Brazil to global eminence better than Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, the CEO of Brazilian banking giant Bradesco.

Trabuco Cappi was born into humble circumstances in the small town of Marilia, Sao Paulo in 1951. Although middle-class by Brazilian standards of the time, the circumstances of his upbringing would probably be recognized by most Americans as being those of grinding poverty.

Trabuco Cappi was able to get excellent grades in high school. However, his family had no money to send him to college. As a result, he was forced to go join the labor market. He was eventually hired at a local bank, Bradesco. Over the following decades, Trabuco Cappi slowly moved up through the corporate hierarchy, proving himself to be a quick study and able leader. Throughout the 1970s, he was able to put himself through night school at the prestigious University of Sao Paulo. By the end of that decade, he had attained a bachelor’s degree in business administration and a master’s degree in social psychology.

Trabuco Cappi was now making far more money than any member of his family had ever done before. By the mid-1980s, he had been appointed to his first executive roles with the bank. Throughout the 90s and 2000s, Trabuco Cappi proved to be instrumental in the rise of Bradesco from a small local bank into one of the most important financial institutions in the country. In 2009, he was rewarded for his years of service and profitable leadership by being given the position of CEO.

In less than 40 years, Trabuco Cappi had managed to completely transcend his class of origin. Even though such precipitous ascents from the bottom of Brazilian society to the top do not happen with a high frequency, they happen often enough to suggest that Brazil may be a better incubator of the American Dream than America itself.
