Venezuela is flushing itself down an economic toilet. The President of Venezuela, Nicolas Maduro, has turned the country into a wasteland even though it sits on the largest oil reserves in the world. But oil is one of the reasons that Venezuela is in this mess in the first place, according to Deputy National Assemblyman José Manuel González. González tried to stop Hugo Chavez when he chose imports over domestic food production during the oil boom years. Chavez had a cash cow at his fingertips, and he spent the cash like a drunken sailor. Chavez did help people raise their standard of living, but he did at the expense of saving money for the future. His handpicked successor, Maduro, was left with empty pockets when the oil business crashed, and he didn’t have the sense to change the economic direction of the country.
González is a well-known entrepreneur in Venezuela, and as Deputy of the National Assembly from the state of Guárico he has the task of trying to bring some semblance of common sense in play when it comes to domestic food production and domestic business support. But Maduro may have tipped the economic scales too far, according to Mr. González. Venezuela’s inflation rate is traveling at warp speed. The current rate of inflation is 773 percent and it’s climbing every day. In one month, food prices rose 30 percent. Even opening the borders so people could find food in Colombia hasn’t helped. Maduro’s 50 percent minimum wage hike, which takes effect in September, is only going to increase inflation, according to González. The wage increase was Maduro’s way of dealing with the opposition that wants to remove him from office.
There is a national rally scheduled in September that will show Maduro that his time is up as president. He said the national petition to remove him is illegal, and some fear he will use the military to squash the rally. If that happens, Venezuela’s only salvation may be a revolution.
After heavy flooding in Xerém, Brazil a little over a year ago, Health Secretary Sergio Cortes did a careful survey in the heaviest hit, the city of Duque de Caxias, in Xerém. His investigation after the flooding of the city’s infrastructure, especially around clean drinking water was thorough. He had all the water supplies to the city’s emergency shelters tested. The results were alarming to Dr. Cortes. Tests had found the dangerous water-borne bacteria, leptospirosis, in the taps! After Sergio Cortes recommended that more safe bottled drinking water be brought to the shelters, he issued a public message requiring everyone to only drink bottled water.
Dr. Cortes caused even more bottles of water to be trucked in. This was the great result of his advice to Health Minister Camillo Junqueira. The Minister ordered several more loads to be distributed to all the shelters to cover all needs for hygiene and cooking. Warnings were issued to the public to be careful to disinfect any water, other than bottled water, for the limited future.
The flooding was quite heavy after torrential rains brought the city to a stand-still. As he spoke with flood victims and learned of their immediate needs, he took notes which he later relayed to the health authorities on the scene. He also toured the areas around all of Xerém, which is in the Brazilian state of Rio de Janeiro.
With Cortes’ advisement, the Health Minister upped the number of instant antibiotic injects to over 3,000 units. The good doctor’s main concern with the flood waters causing such biological chaos is contractions of the diseases dengue fever and hepatitis A. He is lesser concerned with, but still planned to educate people, about the possibility of cases of chicken pox and meningitis. These Centers can rehydrate up to 300 flood victims per day. You can read more about Dr. Sergio Cortes during the flood. You can also read Dr. Cortes LinkedIn Shares, and be sure to follow Dr. Sergio Cortes on Twitter.

Recently, Bob Reina, Founder and CEO of Talk Fusion was on ABC Action News talking about his company Talk Fusion. This communications industry leader was sharing more information about how it all-one-one video solution is changing the way business is conducted. Reina was focused on developing a more personal way to stay in touch and the Talk Fusion company was born.
Talk Fusion, a marketing and communications company is now celebrating their ninth year in the communications marketplace. The product behind the scenes is the all-in-one video solution developed by Reina. The total package is marketed as the one solution that any individual or business can use to communicate with others face-to-face without the need for expensive travel. When the economy began to collapse in 2007 many companies began to look at their budget in order to determine what cuts were the easiest to make. One of the first cuts was to limit travel. This is where video conferencing is a big deal for Talk Fusion.
Companies are now using video in newsletters as well as video for their standard email campaigns. The more personal touch is just what the world needs in Reina’s opinion. The bigger the personal connection the more likely it is to do business with someone. This is why video chat is also used on a frequent basis by Talk Fusion customers. Live meetings and signup forms are also enhanced by this area of video communications. Download the free app here.
His way of overcoming this was to create the product himself! You can learn more about Reina and his company Talk Fusion by following this link http://www.abcactionnews.com/morning-blend/talk-fusion
