THE FAST AND THE FURIOUS COMES TO BRAZIL

Dwayne Johnson Joins Vin Diesel in the 'Fast Five' Trailer

by: Matt McDaniel

Vin Diesel and Dwayne Johnson Universal Pictures It seemed like "The Fast and Furious" movie franchise had run out of gas, but then 2009's "Fast & Furious" was a surprise hit, becoming the highest-grossing film of the series with a gross of $359 million worldwide.

Since bringing Vin Diesel and Paul Walker from the original worked so well for the fourth movie, it was only natural that they'd team up again for the fifth. They're back in the next installment called "Fast Five," and this time, they will be joined by cast members from each of the previous movies.

Rodney Beatin and his wife, (WOW, Rodney Beatin his wife, LOL did anyone else catch that?? LOL) a couple of 60-somethings, divide their time between Columbus, Ohio, a nd Brazil, spending six months a year in each place. One of the reasons for their move was to live in a place with a low cost of living that is easier on their retirement budget.
[See 10 Tips for Retirement Overseas.]

"Living in the United States was becoming expensive for the value of what you get, for the quality of life. So, we began looking elsewhere and considering alternatives," says Beatin. "We found and bought a home in Brazil, near the shore, but we didn't want to move there full-time. We just weren't ready for that dramatic of a change. Mostly, we wanted to find a way to reduce our cost of living."

Is Brazil’s Economy Getting Too Hot?


Image via Wikipedia
Last night 60 Minutes featured a segment on Brazil entitled “The World’s Next Economic Superpower.” Eike Batista, Brazil’s richest man and the world’s eighth richest man (profiled by Forbes  in March) told Steve Kroft that it’s time for Americans to “wake up” to the economic giant to their south.
Many Americans have already been awake to Brazil for at least some time.
Just today, General Electric demonstrated its interest in Brazil when it announced a plan to buy subsea pipeline manufacturer Wellstream Holdings, which derives a “substantial portion” of revenues from Brazil, for $1.3 billion.

AYAHUASCA TEA CEREMONY: JOURNEY WITHIN

Talk to someone who has experience with Ayahuasca and you will understand very quickly that although the ingredients of the tea are pretty easy to explain, making an effort to describe anything beyond that borders on impossible. Brian Wilson (Urban Shaman aka “Wannabe Woodsman”), an American living in Brazil and your guide for the tea ceremony should you partake, does a great job of articulating this powerful medicine.

1st a Little Info on Ayahuasca
Ayahuasca, in its physical form, is a healing plant mixture boiled, strained, and drank in sacred ceremony by shamans in the Amazon rainforest for thousands, possibly tens of thousands of years. There is tons of research available explaining the long-term benefits of working with the brew, including a permanent increase in seratonin levels (leading to more happy, fulfilling lives), release of various physical ailments (some considered incurable in Western medicine), and release of psychological and mental-related illnesses (such as schizophrenia). Spiritually, this plant is in its own Universe, beyond comprehension levels of most and limited by mere language.

IMPORTANT FESTIVALS FOR SALVADOR



 

 

 

 

Important Festivals

Salvador da Bahia

Festivals da Salvador

The popular festivals trace their origins back to the tradition of communities of paying tribute to their patron saints, expressing their gratitude for blessings obtained. During the event the requests for peace, good health, and wealth are renewed.

The centuries old custom was inherited by the Portuguese and has been changed through the years. Originally the festival presented just people praying and chanting to their patron saints, but with time, stands selling drinks and food appeared, giving to the festival an entertainment characteristic. The songs are no longer strictly religious ones. On the streets can be heard the the typical capoeira and samba beats along with other rhythms.

These changes transported the festivals beyond the communities and churches’ largos into the streets. Nowadays they are registered by the curious eyes of tourists and by TV cameras from all over the world. They come to Salvador to appreciate these moments, which express so well the icons of the local culture such as Candomblé, Catholicism, gastronomy, dancing and music.

The festivals take place all through the year, without ever losing their enthusiasm. These guarantees a good time from January until December, for both the faithful and those who come only to visit. Salvador provides a million reasons for a good celebration and some of the best-known popular festivals are Bom Jesus dos Navegantes, Nosso Senhor do Bonfim, the Yemanjá festivity and Nossa Senhora da Conceição.

Salvador is a land of all saints and the people celebrate accordingly. It shines with a magical glow that invites every person from every corner of the earth to find out why Salvador has been named the Land of Happiness.

BRAZIL IS NOW A BIG LEAGUE PLAYER

The US is trying to contain Brazil by creating conflicts on its border, argues Uruguayan analyst, Raúl Zibechi.

altBrazil is now a big league player. In the decade in which it begins its ascent, the country is so important that it is forcing its main competitor in the region, the United States, to redesign its foreign policy to take into consideration Brazil's prominence, a tactic that might destabilize all of Latin America.

Brazil loves and appreciates its amazing variety of tropical fruits.  They love it so much that they name many of the beautiful women of brazil here after them, lol!  Check this out and you will see why Brazil girls are named after the tropical fruits.

This list isn’t extensive…if I tried to name everything the list would go on for days.  Seriously there is more variety found here than anywhere else on the planet.  Some enterprising people have picked up on this and started marketing some of the wonder fruits found here to the world, kinda like Tahitian Noni.

People here in Bahia use natural remedies as often as possible versus prescription drugs.  Perhaps I could do a list on herbs and leaves found here and their healing properties.  I will have to research that one as the list will be extensive!  Anyone interested in that info please send a paypal donation to me at admin@mooraboutbahia.com.


Without further ado, here is the fruit list!

Abacaxí  (Pineapple)
Brazilian pineapples are the best I’ve ever had.  They are so sweet and juicy its ridiculous!  They are sweet even when green but even better ripe (bright orangish-yellow in color).  Beware though, do not eat the fruit near the stalk or bottom.  Doing so will lead to severe vomiting, and diarrhea and an overall painful feeling that will leave you wanting to die! I am not joking! Believe me we found this out the hard way.

“The new global titans to emerge from the Great Credit Crash of 2008-2009 don’t lie in the industrialized economies,” says Investment Director Eric Roseman.
“Rather, the new leaders will emerge from advanced emerging market countries like China and Brazil whose economic infrastructure and domestic consumption have remained relatively resilient since the emergence of the credit squeeze 19 months ago.”

Fact: The U.S. Debt and Stimulus Is Simply Not Sustainable:
Question: What Happens When Interest Payments Crowd Out Defense and Entitlements?

FreeVideoCoding.com

Niall Ferguson, author of The Ascent of Money: A Financial History of the World, has been commenting lately that the U.S. government should be hearing alarm bells, given the rising debt and stimulus programs. In contrast, mainstream economists like Paul Krugman have been saying that if the U.S. doesn’t stimulate more quickly and aggressively, it will fall into another depression or deeper downturn. Ferguson’s point of view from looking at history clearly is superior, from our perspective. He notes that most great empires and dominant economies fall rapidly in years or decades, rather than slowly, due to financial stresses from their increasingly over-extended empires.

The Facts Point Towards Insolvency

James Dale Davidson and Lord William Rees-Mogg also made this argument in The Great Reckoning: How the World Will Change in the Depression of the 1990s (1991). Think about the Soviet Union, which suddenly lost its power after 1989, just after withdrawing from a failed war in Afghanistan. Likewise, Japan went from the strongest up-and-coming economy in the world to, suddenly, a “dead” economy from 1990 on. Japan is now surpassed by China as the number two economy in the world.

HOW TO FREE YOURSELF FROM A 9 TO 5 AND LIVE ANYWHERE

How to Free Yourself from 9-5 and Live Anywhere


Quit the Rat Race and Get a Life

Just the other day, a friend of mine finally asked the question that’s probably burning in the minds of most of my friends: “I don’t get it.” she began, “how can you afford to just pick up and travel around for months on end?”  How do you make money and how can I have your lifestyle?”  She works as a postal carrier and dreads every day of it.

“It’s not that I don’t work,” I explained, “it’s just that I only choose to do the type of work that is portable and mobile.  I also look for ways to integrate my travels into money-making ventures which is not as difficult as you think”.

Three Realizations

She was listening intently so I continued, “There are three realizations you have to make to achieve a mobile lifestyle like mine. The first is to realize that real change starts within you and depends entirely on the choices and decisions you make. The second is to limit your work efforts to something that can be done from anywhere.  The third is that while our “developed” economies stagnate, the rest of the world is booming and there are plenty of opportunities outside your home borders.”

Five Best Places to Retire in South America


South America - low cost yet high quality living

South America is such an exceptionally vibrant continent, inhabited by passionate people who live life to the full.  As Lonely Planet puts it: “It’s as though the continent was built for travel.”  If you’re currently exploring your global options in search of the best place to retire, and you’re looking for a place where you can have a low cost yet high quality living, South America is home to a handful of nations that you might like to closely consider.

In recent years many South American countries have experienced significant and sustained economic growth, which has seen at least the quality of infrastructure improve, if not the quality of life for many citizens.

ROUSSEFF, BRAZIL'S PRES-ELECT SPEAKS ON CURRENCY WAR / CHINA INVESTS HEAVILY IN BRAZIL

Rousseff speaks on the currency war

November 2, 2010 5:10pm
by Barney Jopson
 

Dilma Rousseff, Brazil’s president-elect, has made her first comments on the “currency war” since winning Sunday’s election. This is the war in which Brazil’s outgoing finance minister told us the world was engaged and Rousseff, broadly speaking, stuck to the policy line he set out.
In separate television interviews, she said that “manipulating” exchange rates cannot resolve anything, that she would not do anything that “created confusion”, and that international organisations such as the G20 should be strong enough to “force certain countries” to value their currencies realistically.
We can only gather from those words that she does not view as problematic the kind of capital controls introduced - and recently tightened - by the government of her mentor, President Luiz Inácio Lula da Silva.
Continuity is the watchword, but her comments leave plenty of questions unanswered. When she makes her international debut at the G20 meeting in Seoul next week, alongside Lula, she will no doubt deal with some of them.
