Roberto Santiago: The Man Behind The Manaira Shopping Mall

Roberto Santiago is a businessman who has given life to several notable business ventures in Brazil. Being a lively person who likes having a good time, he has given rise to several projects that also help people enjoy themselves. Even though he has been a part of a number of projects during his career, one of the most notable ones has to be the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall. The mall is one of the most prominent places for fun and entertainment in the country and is one who has given Roberto Santiago an incredible name for himself.

Roberto Santiago has always been a forward thinker. The idea for the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall was not something that was conceived overnight. For Santiago, it took years worth of planning and foresight to bring this idea to fruition. When he was just starting out in his career and had only taken on a few notable ventures, he decided to invest in a piece of land. He decided that he would develop this plot of land at a future date, which is the place that eventually turned into the Roberto Santiago Shopping Mall. Because he had bought the plot of land almost ten years before the project, he got an incredibly good return on his investment that benefited him immensely.

For the past several years, the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall has been one of the prime entertainment destinations in Manaira. People from all over the city visit the mall to avail of the many facilities that they have in store. Roberto Santiago wanted to make the mall as diverse as possible and include not just one or two, but multiple options that would let people enjoy themselves and have a good time.

One of the core attractions of the mall is the shopping facilities available here. The mall is home to a wide variety of stores, some of them being branches of big brands, and some being local flagship stores. More and more brands are choosing to set up their stores here in the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall because of the thousands of patrons that the mall sees on a daily basis. Doing this has also benefited the mall since bringing in more names means opening up to newer consumer groups that they didn’t already have before.

In addition to shopping, the mall is also a prime destination for those who are looking for a place to enjoy a good meal. With a wide range of restaurants to choose from, almost every pallet can be satiated here at the mall. In addition, those who like to enjoy a quiet meal can do so in the fine dining area which is a separate enclosed space so that people can enjoy a nice quiet meal.

Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Longtime foes of former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio are speaking out about the pardon granted to him by President Donald Trump. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, executives with the Village Voice, say they are not surprised that Trump stepped in to save Arpaio from serving a prison sentence.

Arpaio was indicted for criminal contempt in July of 07, when he defied a court order to stop racially profiling Latinos. Arpaio was due to be sentenced in a few weeks. Judge Susan Bolton’s validation of the Arpaio’s pardon has ended a decade-long saga, which included one of the most brazen examples of Second Amendment Rights violation in history.

Larkin and Lacey, also co-owners of the Phoenix New Times penned a number of articles over the years regarding Arpaio’s questionable conduct during his 24 years in office. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin |

On the evening of Oct. 18, 2007, several members of the sheriff’s goon squad showed up at Larkin and Lacey’s homes and led them away in handcuffs.

Both men would eventually have the last laugh.

“What has happened here with Arpaio is a typical example of the justice system gone awry. Instead of serving time behind bars, he is not being held accountable for the people who were killed inside his jails, the tortures and rights violations of numerous people,” said Larkin.

Arpaio’s track record is a vulgar as it is long. Lacey quickly recounted some of the former sheriff’s most disgusting lowlights: beating deaths, tortures, suffocation in restraint chairs, chaining pregnant inmates to beds while giving birth, inmate suicides, and that’s only the tip of the iceberg.

Arpaio’s actions were brazen. At a certain point, it became apparent that he could do whatever he wanted with little or no backlash. But Larkin and Lacey were not going to let Arpaio off the hook. So, they continued to write about him. Learn more about James Larkin and Michael Lacey: and

After the arrests, the tsunami of outraged that followed proved to be too much for Arpaio to bear. Once the arrest made national news, the duo were released and the trumped-up charges dropped. In 2013, Larkin and Lacey were awarded $3.2 million in damages. However, the Melendres v. Maricopa County lawsuit costs the taxpayers $70 million.

While the sheriff failed to serve prison time, many residents felt it was time for Arpaio to hang up his hat. He lost his last reelection bid in 2016.

But the irony of it all is that Arpaio didn’t start his career in 1992 off as a hard nut that seemingly hated immigrants. In fact, when the attorney general refused to prosecute self-described vigilante Patrick Haab for holding a group of undocumented men at gunpoint, Arpaio was livid. It was only after Republicans lined up with Haab did Arpaio line up with them.

Larkin and Lacey have used their settlement to do good. They have opened the Fontera Fund to help further causes of Latino citizens.

Ambassador Daniel Taub Improved British Israeli Trade and Met Anti-Semitism Head on in Bradford

In June of 2015 Sajid Javid the then British Secretary of State for Business, Innovation and Skills spoke during the British Israeli Business Awards. During his address, he described Daniel Taub’s time as the Isreali Ambassador to Britain as a “golden era” of British Isreali trade.

The Israel-Britain Chamber of Commerce placed the value of trade between Isreal and Britain at $5.5 billion annually. Secretary Javid put that figure at nearer $7 billion. In addition, the number of Isreali businesses opening offices in Britain reached 300. Learn more about Daniel Taub: and

Now former Ambassador Taub’s accomplishments in Britain were not limited to trade. Academic and cultural connections between Isreal and Britain became stronger. He also acted as an envoy to Northern Ireland.

A British citizen by birth Daniel Taub assumed the role of Isreal’s top diplomat to the Court of Saint James’s in 2011. An Orthodox Jew he immigrated to Isreal in 1989.

In August of 2014 anti-Semitism on British College Campuses came to the fore. The country’s largest student union decided to boycott Isreal. The vote called for a boycott of and abolishing ties with Isreal. The resolution cleared the way for anti-Isreali activities on college campuses.

In a similar move, the city of Bradford was declared an “Isreal-free zone” by that city’s Representative to Parliament George Galloway. It was Galloway’s intent that anything Isreali whether it is products or people would be banned from Bradford. This was three years into Daniel Taub’s ambassadorship. Galloway’s actions were in response to Isreali military operations in the Gaza Strip. Read more: Daniel Taub | Ideamench and Daniel Taub | LinkedIn

Some citizens of Bradford responded by inviting Ambassador Taub to visit Bradford. While in Bradford elected officials, religious leaders, and members of community groups held meetings with Daniel Taub who renounced George Galloway, but not the people of Bradford.

An expert in International Law Daniel Taub holds degrees from both Oxford and Harvard Universities. He started out as a combat medic with the Isreali Defense Force. He would later become a reserve officer with the IDF.

Daniel Taub the writer wrote speeches for former Isreali President Chaim Herzog. He writes commentary on the daily Torah readings that blend humor, political insight, and quotes from Isreali leaders.

Taub is also a screenwriter for a TV series. “HeChatzer” is a drama that takes place in an ultra-orthodox Hasidic community. The show’s purpose is to create an accurate picture of the relationship between the secular and religious world in Isreal.

Three Startup Business Tips From Mike Baur, Head Of The Swiss Startup Factory

Switzerland is starting to become a new hub for business startup activity thanks to people like Mike Baur who are giving young entrepreneurs a chance to build businesses. Baur specifically helps launch businesses through a program he runs at his company, the Swiss Startup Factory. The program involves mentoring sessions where experts analyze ideas, pitching opportunities where the entrepreneurs get to show investors where they plan to take their company and market research into what they can expect with product demand. Baur says that the due diligence needed for startups is only part of the battle, and that entrepreneurs should follow three additional tips while starting a business.


Mike Baur says you should be prepared to do most of the preparation and organizing for your business yourself. Opportunities to start a company are never just random chances; they rely completely on the entrepreneur making them happen. Second, Baur says change is always going to come whether you like it or not, so make sure your business is always able to adapt to it. And thirdly, you need to understand which risks you’ll need to take and be willing to take them. The risk taking isn’t as much what you do to start your company, but what will happen after the execution phase and the decisions that go into your growth strategy.


Before Mike Baur got into the startup acceleration business, he was managing investments at UBS Bank and Clariden Leu. This was originally supposed to be the job Baur would have all the way until he retired, or so he was told when he entered the UBS Bank apprenticeship program back when he was only 16 years old. But even though Baur had a great financial acumen and was respected by his peers and even his superiors, he decided to leave banking in 2014. Part of this was due to the increased regulations that the 2008 recession brought with it, and other reasons were that he felt he could no longer help regular people as much as he used to.


Mike Baur wanted Switzerland’s economy to start going with the tech waves that were happening in nations like China and Japan, and taking part in the disrupter niche where companies like Uber were now taking root. The SSUF has put a lot of emphasis on disruptive technology and Internet of Things developments like artificial intelligence. The companies given funding in the SSUF portfolio have been tested through rigorous sessions in a three-month batch program there. The SSUF also is a partner of the Goldback Group and Red Bull Media.


Bob Reina and Talk Fusion Unveil Latest Hit.

For the better part of the past decade, the team at Talk Fusion have been putting together innovative marketing products for use specifically with the power of video. Talk Fusion is one of the top video marketing and direct-selling companies on the web and CEO Bob Reina is making headlines once again for his work, this time in promotion of new WebRTC adaptive software. The latest innovative program to come out of the Talk Fusion warehouse is the Live Meetings application.


With Live Meetings, Talk Fusion has built a video conferencing program that works with WebRTC technology in order to reduce lag and improve the ability to reach an audience by way of video conferencing. Talk Fusion touts Live Meetings’ ability to be broadcast to up to 500 users at a single time while up to 15 different hosts take turns rotating in the video. This one-way conferencing application can have a huge impact on the way that companies reach out to prospective clients or partners.


One of the big draws for the Live Meetings application is that it does not mandate the separate download of unique software. Users can access Live Meetings by simply pointing their web browser toward the location of the video conference. The primary benefit of this sort of connection is that it gives users the ability to instantly jump into their meetings without having to worry about compatibility or matching up the right software in order to access the interface.


Talk Fusion is the brainchild of founder and CEO Bob Reina. Reina established the company back in 2007 because he accurately saw just how important video would one day be to the world. Since Reina established the company, Talk Fusion has grown in reach to countries all around the world while being based out of Florida. Talk Fusion scored massive industry awards for their work on their Video Chat application and now it looks like the company is dipping in once more to try and capture lightning in a bottle. Reina came to video marketing after a full career as a sheriff’s deputy and now he is one of the most vocal proponents of the technology. Learn more:
