Hanging Clothes to air dry

I was watching a Mexican movie yesterday on Netflix padre no tan padre and in one of the scenes the old man critics the Brazilian for hanging their swim wear some sort of top to dry. In Brazil it’s common for people to hang their clothes to air dry but in Mexico its seems as ghetto to dry your underwear/clothes in an open space.

I don’t have problem because that how dry my clothes in São Paulo. In the United States I know most people have a dryer at home or a laundry mat close by. What do you think about air drying your clothes outside ?

When in Sao Paulo in the Pihinerios area you have to visit a bar called No Name. Its dive a bar the food and location are great. Its right across the Federique Couthino metro station.

Ask for a table outside if available. Order a cold beer and some mini pastel. And just sit there people watch I recommend around 5pm you see everyone heading home. Note beautiful women everywhere in Brazil.

no name bar is located Auriflana and Pinheiros .

Cultural broker has to listen first before anything, take accurate notes, and asking questions if the communication is not clear.

Helpful questions are

  • Clarification (example: may you clarify what meant in this particular part?)
  • Verification (example: verification of account # 12948sae44, is that correct ?)
  • Repetition (example: excuse may have repetition, I’m not sure I understood)

When I think of design sometimes i think about supercars like Lamborgihini or Ferrarri. Ask your self how would feel driving that type vehicle. I would ” Slick like a Gato” Jay-z

The lines of those vehicles are smooth and have a slickness to it. It would be an luxury experience. Culture is an experience. We are brokering experiences. We are brokering luxurious experience. We are brokering the human experience.

The best |FRUIT| company according to U.S. consumers.

The best fruit company is found on fertile grounds. Where do these fruitful fertile grounds exist? In botany, a fruit is a seed-bearing structure in flowering plants formed from the ovary after flowering. Fruits are how angiosperms disseminate seeds. A generalization for fruit is that they carried seeds as opposed to vegetables. Peppers, avocados, and tomatoes are considered fruits.

Why are fruits important?

While many studies look at fruit and vegetable consumption as a whole, there are a few studies that explore the benefits of fruits specifically. One review of nine studies found that each additional serving of fruit eaten each day reduced the risk of heart disease by 7% (29).

Another study showed that eating fruits like grapes, apples, and blueberries is associated with a lower risk of type 2 diabetes (22Trusted Source). Citrus fruits, in particular, can raise the levels of citrate in your urine, which lowers the risk of kidney stones (30Trusted Source). 

Increased fruit intake can also help lower blood pressure and reduce oxidative stress, which may decrease the risk of heart disease (31). Eating more fruits and vegetables is also associated with improved blood sugar control in people with diabetes (32Trusted Source).

Health is Wealth.

The general recommendation for fruit and vegetable intake is at least 400 grams per day or five servings of 80 grams. One 80-gram serving is equivalent to a small piece about the size of a tennis ball. For fruits and vegetables that can be measured by the cup, a serving is roughly 1 cup. Many studies are indicating that fruit intake is associated with a lower risk of many serious diseases, including heart disease, stroke, and type 2 diabetes.

Top producers of Fruit in the World

1. China 150 million tonnes

2. India 82 million tonnes

3. Brazil 37 million tonnes

4. United States 29 million tonnes

5. Spain 18 million tonnes

6. Mexico 17.5 million tones

It makes sense both of the top producers in the world are also the most populated countries. Brazil is known for its biodiversity because of the Amazon rainforest. The best |fruit| company according to U.S. consumers is a region, land, and country that serves it is inhabitants. I want to recognize the importance of the best |fruit | that goes under-appreciated. A modern-day philosopher named it America’s Cornucopia Horn for the United States.

America’s Cornucopia Horn is Mexico and the west coast of the United States are producing most of the fruits that Americans are eating. These fruits are found in local markets to world renowned restaurants and wineries.

Top Imported Fruits Most Loved by Americans







Today, I got in a fight with life! And I earned respect.

Today, life beat me up but I stood up fought back with all I got.

Woke today not feeling 100% maybe because of the beers I had the night before. But that didn’t stop from going to kitchen washing dishes, making coffee and cooking breakfast.

After breakfast, I studied for my interpreting test and worked for 7 hours.

I got a call 30 minutes into my shift and started interpreting all day. Some of the calls that I was interpreting where difficult.

I wasn’t feeling to good but I did my best and finished my shift. Felt good to finish but it was draining.

After work, I when to a boxing class to take out this nervous energy, that I have for an up coming test. I worked out so much a threw up. Jajaj

I kept on pushing finished that class and came home.

When I arrived home I felt, like I had gotten in fight with life all day and I had gotten my ass kicked, but I pushed so hard that I earned respect from life.

And anytime life wants to fight, it knows now that I’m going to bring it.

How to get started.

The hardest part is getting started. My personal reason for taking so long to start a blog is because of judgment.

Peers or other individuals commenting on how my grammar isn’t any good or just plain mockery for expressing your thought and feelings.

But I rather try and fail, then to never have tried at all. So here goes nothing.

The reason for this blog is to express myself creatively and to build brand. I have experience working with different brands “companies” and that’s why I know the importance of creating your own.

Since, my first job ever was at a pizza place better know as Little Caesars. I can remember being part of a brand by standing on the street spinning a sign or making pizza as fast as possible for our hungry customers.

And all the other work “jobs” that follow I had to represent a brand. I’m latino, so we start working at age 16 with parental approval. From the top of my head, I have worked for about 20 brands “companies”.

Promoting, customer services, sales, and every aspect or activity that would reflect the brand. Arriving on time, looking presentable, and ready to work my personal brand.

I write to introduce Design and Finance we are a brand consultation firm that is focused on the Latino market.
