Shervin Pishevar Goes on “Bizarre” Tweet Storm

Shervin Pishevar, well-known as an early investor in Uber, recently went on a tweet storm that lasted a full 21 hours. Known as a man of many words, has remained quiet lately until his recent, and some say bizarre, tweet marathon. In December of last year, Shervin Pishevar announced he was resigning from Sherpa Capital.

 

When the markets suffered a sudden drop back in February, Pishevar tweeted out 50 points as to why he believes U.S. markets will drop 6,000 points over the course of the year. He also predicted that bitcoin will drop to between $2,000-$5,000. He also talked about SpaceX and immigration laws.

Shervin Pishevar started by tweeting that he would explain in detail why he expects markets to drop by 6,000 points. However, after the initial tweet, he started tweeting about how the death Silicon Valley is on the horizon. Afterward, he moved on to explain that his opponents are “out to get him,” and that he will not allow them to drag the success of Sherpa Capital through the mud. On the flip side, he did outline some predictions for the U.S. economy. Here are some of the quotes from Shervin Pishevar.

 

“The markets will see a ripple effect with strong volatility in bonds.”

“The bitcoin crash will continue.”

“The stranglehold California has on tech and innovation is at an end.”

“The U.S. is poised to lose China and other countries, specifically in infrastructure.”

“The biggest companies will continue to have the power as startups in the U.S. fall.”

 

He also believes that volatility indexes and managed funds are primed for failure. He also went on to explain how the U.S. economy and global economy are separate entities and how the U.S. economy’s “isolation” makes it impossible to sustain any upward trends. He also tweeted that Google, Apple, Amazon and Microsoft are now monopolies.

Banco Bradesco Leaps Boldly Into The Future Under Luiz Carlos Trabuco, Announcing Their New CEO

It was announced that the new CEO for Banco Bradesco SA would be decided before Carnival, and that statement rings true. In early February, Octavio de Lazari Junior was announced as Bradesco’s new CEO.

The need for a new CEO stems from prior CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco’s appointment to the position of chairman. He was appointed as chairman following Lazaro Brandao’s choice to step down after serving 25 years in the position. Until Lazari is formally appointed to the position of Bradesco’s chief executive officer on the 18th of March, 2018, Trabuco will continue to act as the interim CEO as well as the chairman of the board.

Lazari’s initial referral as the chief executive officer will coincide with the first meeting of Bradesco’s newly restructured executive board of directors on the 18th. Over the past few weeks, preliminary changes to the structure of the board have been made in anticipation of the upcoming shareholders meeting whereupon the final structure of the board will be decided.

The preliminary changes to Banco Bradesco SA’s executive board of directors include a number of structural changes and promotions. Two of the executive directors of the board have been promoted to the position of vice president, along with four new board members being appointed as vice presidents. Two of the bank’s directors have been promoted as well, taking on the new role of deputy executive director. Additionally, Aurelio Conrado Boni has announced his intentions to resign from the board. These changes have begun the process of preparing the board for the new CEO.

Currently, Lazari is working as one of Bradesco’s vice presidents, and he will continue to maintain that position until his official appointment as the chief executive officer later this month. Additionally, Lazari holds the title of president within the Bradesco Seguros group. He will maintain his position with the Bradesco Seguros group following his appointment as CEO of Banco Bradesco. He has worked for Bradesco since he was 15 years old, first joining the bank almost 40 years ago. In order to gain his new position as CEO, he had to come out ahead of several other strong contenders, and he did so with flying colors.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco
After Brandao stepped down from his position as chairman at the age of 91, Luiz Carlos Trabuco was appointed as his successor. Before he was appointed as chairman, Trabuco served as Banco Bradesco’s chief executive officer, a role which he will continue to fill until Lazari’s appointment later this month. He had served as CEO for nine years, first being appointed in 2009. Prior to that, he was serving as a vice president within Banco Bradesco.

Trabuco has been with Banco Bradesco SA for 49 years so far and has spent nearly his entire professional career with them. His immense passion for the bank has allowed him to advance through the ranks and has brought him to his current position as chairman; a position well-earned. His service with Bradesco has consistently helped to bring the company towards success, and it’s expected that he’ll continue to help Bradesco grow as its new chairman.

Doe Deere and her awesome cosmetic line “Lime Crime”

Purple hair, don’t care must be Doe Deere’s motto in life. She blazes through life in her own way. With that in mind, here is a little about her upbringing and how she became who she is today.

Doe Deere was born in Russia in 1981. She was a creative young girl with an ambitious streak in her. She enjoyed dressing up in costumes and getting creative with makeup. At the age of 13 she started her own business. It was simple and fun. Doe sold temporary tattoos to her schoolmates to make some extra cash. It was her first taste of entrepreneurship and that continued into adulthood. She also wanted to become a musician, so with her ambitious nature in mind (and a suitcase) she moved from Russia to New York City. It had to be challenging that young to move so far away from home, but she was determined! The budding musician learned the pearls of business and career. Learning to market her band, SKY SALT, was a necessary skill she learned early in life. Ms. Deere also learned to appreciate the people who came out to her events, taking the time out from their busy lives to be there. Romance also bloomed for Doe as she met her husband in the band. It was a learning experience for their relationship and they built a solid foundation of trust and togetherness. The duo also learned how to work together, a necessary skill for any relationship.

They spend a lot of time in New York City, also Manhattan and Brooklyn. Essentially she spent her young adulthood there. Back tracking to her childhood, the now thriving entrepreneur felt different and alone. Luckily for those differences, it was what shaped her as an adult. That is how Lime Crime, her cosmetic brand was born. Upon buying makeup at the store, Doe could not find anything she wanted. She was drawn to bright and unusual colors that most stores did not carry. Fed up with her predicament, and hearing that other girls felt the same, Doe launched her own brand called Lime Crime in 2008. It was a hit and grew to unimaginative lengths. The self-proclaimed “Unicorn Queen” personally reviews each product before it goes onto market. The whole brand is proudly cruelty-free and vegan (http://yourbeautycraze.com/doe-deere-helps-wayward-cats-kitty-bundles/). They have been certified by animal activist giant PETA and Leaping Bunny. They continue to expand the brand with new products all the time.
