Andy Wirth is highly regarded as a successful businessman and athlete. As the CEO of Squaw Valley Ski Resort, Wirth has had an large amount of success with corporations. His business life on, however, is not the only place Wirth has overcome life’s challenges. As an avid athlete, Wirth often participates in a variety of sporting activities, including sky diving. One one sky diving trip Andy Wirth’s life changed significantly due the fact that he sustained a serious injury. While most individuals who hear Wirth’s story are inclined to believe that this injury was one of the worst things to ever happen to him, Andy Wirth on ironman maintains that it was a challenge he needed to face and overcome.

Andy Wirth was enjoying a common sky diving trip with his friends when his life changed forever. Andy Wirth was forced, after jumping from the plane, to land in a vineyard which is a dangerous place for sky divers to land. Wirth was impaled by a large pole that the vineyard owners were using to promote the growth of the grape vines. Wirth described the incident during an interview about surviving sporting accidents on He stated that blood immediately started rushing out of the place on his arm where he had been pierced. His history as a country ranger had made him familiar with isolated trauma incidents and he knew that it was important for him to keep calm and not resort to a state of shock. Andy Wirth kept himself calm by humming the words to a pop song he knew and waited for help to arrive. He also kept the vital artery in his arm plugged with his fist, knowing that allowing the artery to bleed freely would probably lead to his death on through loss of blood. It took nearly 20 minutes for someone to find Andy Wirth in the vineyard. Wirth has, however, taken a possible tragic situation and used it to grow.

Unrest in Venezuala is growing as opposition to President Nicolas Maduro faces and all time high. Venezuala is currently facing an economic crisis, but despite the plans of the opposition, Maduro will stay in office for now. According to the National Assembly, there is not legal precedent for Maduro to be removed from office by anyone but the National Assembly.

Maduro is being blamed by David Osio for the economic crisis. He has lost favor with the general public since December, when the opposing party gained control. According to Routers, 2/3rds of the population of Venezuela believe that Maduro’s term as president should end at the end of the year. Maduro says that he plans to stay in office until his term ends in 2019.

Some members of the National Assembly are planning to vote to shorten the term length of the President of Venezuala, which many of them say is much too long. They have also spoken publicly about their plans to call a recall election, which could also end Maduro’s term earlier. Maduro has spoken out against his opposition, saying that party leaders are planing a coup to oust him, but party leaders have denied this.

There is no clear evidence that either side is planning to use military force, but it is clear that things are heating up in this small South American nation.

The Human Rights Foundation was founded by Thor Halvorssen to address issues of human rights around the world. Thor unfortunately brings personal experience to the field where he is often sought out by news sources around the world. His family has had their human rights violated by the Venezuelan government.
Thor started out as a student activist while studying in England. The issue that he chose to speak out on at that time was South African apartheid. Now, thoughts of people that have their rights violated around the globe are seldom far from his mind. One issue that greatly concerns Thor is child slavery.

Two the countries where child labor is most prevalent are Ghana and the Ivory Coast where children are used to harvest cocoa and manufacture chocolate candy bars. It is estimated that almost 500,000 children are employed in the fields and many more in factories. It is estimated that over 95,000 children are working in Ghana where children as young as five may cut grass with a machete. Many people believe that if they buy a candy bar that is marked for fair trade, then a child slave is not involved in its production. Unfortunately, children can still be used in its production after the cocoa has been harvested. Additionally, many girls are given into slavery in Ghana so that religious leaders will forgive their sins.
Another country where child slavery is a huge problem is in mining where children often have to work 24 hour shifts. This problem particularly exists in Ghana, Niger, Peru and Tanzania. In many areas, these workers are girls because they have no cultural value. Their work is seen as helping their family make a meager living. While international laws now exist making buying gemstones from mines against the law, many children work in small mining operations that governments choose to ignore.
Another area where child labor is a huge problem is in Middle Eastern countries where children are used as camel jockeys. One place where this exist is in the United Arab Emirates where children as young as two are often sold into slavery. The owners then take steps to stunt the baby’s growth. In order to escape international attention, press is always focused on the winning camels. Unlike horse racing, in camel racing each camel does not have to carry the same amount of weight. Therefore, the camel carrying the lightest weight has an advantage.

The “Queens Of Drama” has been one of the most hotly anticipated new reality TV shows produced in recent times after it brought together some of the best known faces from soap operas in U.S. TV history. This scripted reality show has already seen two seasons produced as iconic soap opera faces look to produce a pilot for a brand new drama they hope to have commissioned by a U.S. network. Not only is the interest in the show based upon the new drama that could be created from it, but in the group of actresses who are bringing their own specific experience and skills to the show.

The group of women who are combining their skills as the “Queens Of Drama” are creating persona’s for themselves on this scripted reality show based upon those they made famous during their soap opera appearances. The head of the group remains Donna Mills, who became a success as the powerful head of a household during “Knot’s Landing”, another star who is also using her skills on the show is “One Life to Live” star Crystal Hunt. Despite making her name as the star of “Guiding Light” Crystal Hunt is perhaps best known as Stacy Morasco from her time working on “One Life To Live”. Much of this strong female character is being channeled by Hunt in her performance as a fictionalized version of herself during “Queens Of Drama”.

During her career Crystal Hunt has always refused to be defined by a specific role or path, which has allowed her to embark on a successful acting career and business life. The Florida native has successfully operated a pet boutique business for a number of years in her home state, alongside her career as an actress. The acting career of Crystal has not been limited to soap operas, but has taken in a successful early career as a star of Disney movies. The “Queens Of Drama” star has recently looked to expand her career to take in a number of roles in more adult oriented movies, such as her eye catching performance as Lauren in “Magic Mike: XXL”.

Crystal Hunt and her fellow cast members said that in an interview working on “Queens Of Drama” are joined in season two of the show and beyond by an increasing number of stars of the genre. One of those who will be making their way onto the show is former “Dynasty” star Joan Collins who will look to continue the rivalry her character on the soap opera struck up with “Knot’s Landing” star Donna Mills.

Shaygan Kheradpir was born on December 19, 1960, in London, United Kingdom, but he grew up in Iran. Shaygan had high expectations at an early age, considering his father was a doctor. Shaygan relocated to the United States to attend college at Cornell University. He studied engineering and subsequently earned his bachelor’s, master’s and doctoral degree in the field. He landed his first job at GTE Laboratories in 1987, eventually becoming chief financial officer. GTE merged with Verizon in the year 2000, and Shaygan shined as he was directly responsible for reducing Verizon’s technology budget by %2 percent and reducing Verizon’s technology staff by %20 percent. In 2011, Kheradpir became employed at Barclays as Chief Operating Officer. He then worked for Juniper, becoming CEO in 2014. And from there he worked his way up to CEO of Coriant.

Eucatex is a major construction supplier in South America, and their company is currently under the leadership of Flavio Maluf. Flavio is a member of the founding family of the company, and this article explains how Flavio’s background is making the company more competitive than it ever was. Someone of such a varied background offers leadership and perspective that was once not available to people in his position.

#1: Flavio’s Engineering Background

Flavio has an engineering degree from university, and his engineering degree qualifies him to talk to the manufacturing team on their level. Flavio understands how engineering and manufacturing work, and he works with the people who are in Eucatex plants every day. Flavio has the ability to work hands-on with his people, and that ability makes the company more competitive among its rivals.

#2: Flavio’s Business Background

Flavio was not satisfied to simply have an engineering degree after leaving school. He took it upon himself to work for Citibank in Brazil, and his time spent at Citibank showed him how businesses are run. Flavio’s business acumen is much higher than most people with his educational background, and he sees the big picture for his company that others do not. He is willing to streamline operations, work to save money and create new streams of revenue that may not come from a traditional engineer.

#3: Why Must Eucatex Progress?

Flavio is working quite hard to make Eucatex competitive because of major development in Brazil. The World Cup and Olympics have started a development boom in the country that is creating opportunities for everyone. The company is providing paint for large buildings, construction supplies for builders and construction supplies that may be bought in retail locations. Flavio has put the Eucatex name all around Brazil to provide more exposure for the company. Someone who has not yet heard of Eucatex will soon know the name.

Eucatex is a family-owned business that is fortunate to have Flavio Maluf as its leader. Flavio is one of the few people in engineering who understands business, and he took it upon himself to learn both sides of the trade. He speaks directly with the management in all his factories, and he works the boardroom to ensure his company is healthy. Eucatex is sure to be participant in the continued development of Brazil, and Flavio will ensure that the company remains relevant for as long as possible.
