New Year's Resolutions - Decisões de Ano Novo


Algumas decisões precisam ser atualizadas, modificadas, adaptadas ou mesmo excluídas com o passar do tempo. O mais importante é não desistir e traçar metas para o próximo ano. 

Comprovado: As metas colocadas no papel tem mais chances de serem realizadas.

Dicas: 
1. Coloque suas metas no papel.
2. Não escolha metas impossíveis, mas vá modificando ou dificultando a medida que forem sendo atingidas. 
3. Estabeleça uma data limite para cada uma delas.
4. Observe periodicamente em que estágio de realização elas se encontram.
5. Estabeleça um plano de ação para cada uma delas: como, quando, por quê e quem (se você depender de alguém). 

GOOD LUCK!!!

Three Scenarios For Brazil After Elections (Três cenários para o Brasil após as eleições)

Veja o que diz na FORBES:
http://www.forbes.com/sites/kenrapoza/2014/06/16/three-scenarios-for-brazil-after-elections/


Dilma “Bleh”
“If Dilma wins, foreign investment and the stock market will decline, even though foreign investment will still be high by comparison to other years. There will be very little movement on interest rates because they are close aligned with inflation and growth. The dollar will strengthen to R$2.40 and the equity markets will likely end the year around 5% higher than last year. But in the mid-term (until elections), the Bovespa should trend higher. There is a good chance that there will be a change at the Finance Ministry (now run by Guido Mantega), and that could lead to positive sentiment among foreign investors.”
"Se Dilma ganhar, o investimento estrangeiro e o mercado de ações vai diminuir, mesmo se o investimento estrangeiro continuar elevado em comparação aos outros anos. Haverá muito pouco movimento nas taxas de juros, porque eles estão alinhadas com a inflação e o crescimento. O dólar vai fortalecer a R $ 2,40 e os mercados de ações provavelmente terminarão o ano em torno de 5% maior do que no ano passado. Mas, no médio prazo (até as eleições), a Bovespa tende a subir. Há uma boa chance de que haverá uma mudança no Ministério da Fazenda (agora dirigido por Guido Mantega), e que pode levar ao sentimento positivo entre os investidores estrangeiros ".


Aécio “Boom”
Aécio Neves of the PSDB party, nicknamed the Tucans, or Tucanos in Portuguese, wins and puts his social democratic party back in business. PSDB ran Brazil for 8 years under ex-Finance Minister Fernando Henrique Cardoso and then lost to Workers’ Party front man Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Brazil has been run by the Workers’ Party for 12 years. If Aécio brings back the Tucanos to the Presidential Palace, “foreign investment, particularly speculative capital, should increase while foreign direct investment should remain unchanged. Interest rates will likely go up because a new Finance Minister will be more rigorous in attacking inflation. The dollar will weaken closer to R$2.00 by year’s end, but will strengthen again in 2015 with the increase in U.S. interest rates. Given those two scenarios, the stock market will have a strong rally.”
Aécio Neves do partido PSDB, apelidado de Tucanos, vence e coloca seu partido social-democrata de volta no negócio. O PSDB geriu o Brasil por oito anos pelo ex-ministro das Finanças, Fernando Henrique Cardoso e, em seguida, perdeu para homem de frente do Partido dos Trabalhadores, Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva. O Brasil tem sido gerido pelo Partido dos Trabalhadores há 12 anos. Se o Aécio trouxer de volta os Tucanos para o Palácio Presidencial,  "o investimento estrangeiro, especialmente o capital especulativo, deve aumentar, enquanto que o investimento estrangeiro direto deve permanecer inalterado. As taxas de juros provavelmente vão subir porque um novo ministro das Finanças será mais rigoroso em atacar a inflação. O dólar vai enfraquecer mais perto de R $ 2,00 no final do ano, mas vai fortalecer novamente em 2015 com o aumento das taxas de juros nos Estados Unidos. Diante desses dois cenários, o mercado de ações terá um forte restabelecimento. "


Marina “A Mystery”
If the election goes to Marina Silva, a former heavy weight within the Workers’ Party, the scenario will be “identical to that of Neves. Marina can alter the scenario somewhat, particularly on agribusiness issues, which accounts for 25% of Brazil’s GDP.”
Se a eleição for para Marina Silva, ex-peso pesado dentro do Partido dos Trabalhadores, o cenário será "idêntica ao de Neves. Marina pode alterar o cenário um pouco, especialmente nas questões do agronegócio, que responde por 25% do PIB do Brasil.

Emirates - Behind the scenes



- Evacuate, evacuate.

- This is not your ordinary cabin crew trainee. Here are the states of the aviation college new trainees undergoing on an intense seven-and-a-half-week course where they are tested not just on theory and procedures, but putting their knowledge to practice. So in case of any real life emergency the crew are well prepared.

- I think here in Emirate it's incredibly well-prepared. As you've seen, we call the fidelity, the high fidelity about evacuation trainings, they are real to life. We are very luck that our shareholder owner understand that if you're gonna get the best in the air, you actually have to make sure that the people here on the ground have the best.

- Lights at the floor level will direct you to the doors. Please, read the safety card which is in your seat pocket. 

- As passengers when we fly, we can seat back, relax and enjoy the ride. But for the crew on board who look for hundreds of passengers, it's not just about serving a hot meal, but being prepared for whatever happens at 40.000 feet.

- Five, six, seven, eight, nine... done by 38.

- But what's the most common emergency on board? 

- Maybe (?) it the majority of things that we have, if think about the fact the some of our flights can be 16 hours and a lot of things can happen, emergency. We've been, you know, very luck. We’ve seen things like reject the take-offs and all the sort of thinks that many airlines have, but we really have had anything major. So the crew gets to practice a lot of things that a hope and I know they will never ever have to deal with in real life.

- A 16 hour flight, 40,000 feet up in the air, changing time zones, and flying can be tough as a passenger and it definitely isn't an easy job. But you never know. By the number of worldwide applicants in 2011, there were over 90,000 applicants. And only 4,000 were selected to join.

- Obviously the number we need is driven by the aircraft. And when we have coming there's around 5% who actually are successful. So the people who come are pretty amazing and we go around the world. I think that last year we went to 146 cities in 79 countries to look for cabin crew, so they're pretty special bunch of people.

- Well, most of airline globally-work to avoid state aid and bankruptcy, Emirates is not only one of the fastest-growing carries in the world, but also only one of the handful airlines actively focused on high-quality service.

- A lot of people, I don't believe realize the debt of knowledge and skill that people need to become cabin crew. So for me it's around that (?) to understanding that you know the (?) in an airline safety is at the heart of operation, so we spend a lot of time with our crew looking for emergency and safety procedures and they get training in the gym uniform, as we've said, we've talked about medical, obviously cabin service training. So making sure that they're delivering our wonderful product. We have an amazing product on board the aircraft in terms of food and beverage, and of course they need to be delivered with grace, elegance and a fabulous smile and really friendly.

- The signature red hat and impeccable uniform and service with smile, the Emirates flight attendant is unmistakable, but don't be fooled, these crew members are the products of a program that is almost as selective as Harvard.

Poisonous X Venomous

Já se perguntou alguma vez qual a diferença entre venom e poison? Ambos no português significam veneno, mas a diferença não é na tradução e sim na forma de transmitir esse veneno. Bem, vou deixar que os próprios animais expliquem isso nessa pequena historinha aqui embaixo:

Viram só? Então um animal "poisonous" é aquele que só libera seu veneno ao ser tocado ou ingerido por outro animal, já no "venomous" o veneno é injetado. 

Vocabulary
Overhear = ouvir (por acaso, sem querer)
Toxins =  toxinas
Secrete = secretar (expelir, lançar substancias para fora)
Both = ambos
Anyway = de qualquer forma
Actually = na verdade

Inglês Americano X Inglês Britânico

Há diferenças de:
1. ACCENT (Pronúncia)
2. SPELLING (Ortografia)
3. VOCABULARY (Vocabulário)


As principais são:

1. ACCENT 

1. No inglês britânico há supressão do "h" no início das palavras.
Eg.: I have a horrible hangover - soa: "I've an 'orrible 'angover.
2. O "o" no inglês britânico em palavras como "hot" e "pot" é pronunciado
com os lábios arredondados.
3. O "t" entre vogais, no inglês americano, é pronunciado como um "d" suavizado.
 Já os falantes britânicos pronunciam o "t" como /t/.
4. No inglês britânico, a consoante "r" só é pronunciada antes de vogal.
Eg.: bedroom.
Nos demais casos, o "r" é silencioso, soando mais similar ao som "ah". 
Eg.: car, learn, over.
