José Borghi Is A Successful Advertising Master.

Mr. Jose Borghi’s accomplishments are centered within his homeland of Brazil, but they are without equal in what is considered to be a many-sided world of advertising. As a boy still in school, Jose had a difficult time determining what he would end up pursuing for a career, until his sister convinced him to go with her one night and witness a series of promotional advertisements, presented at a local theater house.

There, Jose was exposed to a variety of successful commercial broadcasts, all of which had earned recognition from the Cannes Film Festival. Each creator of the commercials earned a gold lion award, the symbol of the Cannes recognition. Jose found himself awestruck by these awards. In fact, the boy in Jose desired to own one of these beautiful awards for his very own. This ambition fueled within Jose a strong desire to embark upon the interesting vocation of commercial broadcast advertising.

Today, Mr. Jose Borghi is a recognized leader of advertising videos. He is the founder of the endeavor, Mullen Lowe. They are one of Brazil’s top advertising agencies. One of the commercial broadcasts that was created from the genius of Jose’s mind is “Mammals Parmalat.” In this charming commercial, a group of children are dancing and singing Brazilian jingles. What makes this ad so memorable, is that the children were all garbed in the costume of a stuffed animal.

Jose earned his education from the PUC-Campinas, in Brazil. Later, with his friend Erh Ray, he founded the company BorghiErh to produce their own commercials. Their success earned the attention of Lowe, who bought them out and changed the name to Borghi Lowe. After further success in the business, Lowe and the Mullen Group became partners, eventually changing the company to Mullen Lowe.

Stephen Colbert Continues to Benefit From Donald Trump

It was expected that Donald Trump’s victory in the presidential election would have a net positive impact on late-night and comedic television. Shows like Saturday Night Live have certainly benefited from a ratings boost thanks to Trump. Oddly enough, only certain late-night talk show hosts are seeing a similar benefit. Not surprisingly, it is the more politically leaning hosts that feel the jump.

While NBC’s Jimmy Fallon had been destroying his competition for months and months, if not years, that trend has reversed in 2017. Instead, CBS’s Stephen Colbert is the ratings king in February and into the month of March. Colbert had been having trouble ironing out an audience as he broke onto the network television scene. Once politics overwhelmed everything else, Colbert found his groove.

Audiences were not looking for the silliness and escapism that Fallon delivers. Instead, they wanted raw and real takes on the wild election and presidential dealings. That is what Colbert gives. He topped three million viewers in the overnight numbers from this past week, according to Deadline, which was his fourth straight week winning the ratings battle over Fallon and ABC’s Jimmy Kimmel. The latter felt an uptick after his hosting the Oscars, but that pales in comparison to the steady lead Colbert has claimed.

Political coverage and satire is also what later-night’s Seth Meyers has become known for. His ‘Closer Looks’ skits are must-watch as he distances himself from the silliness of his 12:35 AM peer, James Corden. It is interesting to think what type of dominant pairing Colbert and Meyers would form if they were on the same station, rather than forcing viewers to flip to a competitor during the change-over.

Conan Gets Made in Mexico

Conan O’Brien was on the road again; this time to Mexico. Wednesday night, the late-night talk show, Conan, aired a special remote titled Conan Without Borders: Made in Mexico. O’Brien’s entire show traveled to and filmed in Mexico. It used a Mexican staff, studio, audience, and guests (Diego Luna and Vicente Fox). And like all of O’Brien’s travel episodes, it turned out pretty great.

Conan’s greatest skill as a comedian is his ability to relate to so many different people through using himself as the point of ridicule. He makes himself the butt of jokes, rather than poking fun at a different culture than his own. By ingratiating himself to the outsiders in this way, he becomes the outsider in the foreign land, allowing the television audience to relate to the people he is meeting.

Just in recent travel episodes, Conan has made his way to South Korea, Germany, Cuba, and now Mexico. Each time, he explores the culture he thrusts himself into. In Mexico, that meant meeting a lucha libre wrestler and joining the cast of a telenovela.

O’Brien’s comedy never ventures into politics. That isn’t his thing. But it was obvious that his trip to Mexico was to help prove a point, even if it was an obvious one. These people are normal, nice people! We don’t need a wall between the United States and Mexico. One of his funnier about-town segments saw him panhandling for money for the wall, which Mexican citizens excitedly turned down. Again, he was the butt of the joke here, not the citizens he was talking to. Either that, or Donald Trump was the joke without Conan even uttering anything remotely political.

Thor Halvorssen Protects the Powerless Around the World

Many people see evil in the world and choose to do nothing. This is probably because most people feel that they are powerless when it comes to tackling large problems. This is especially the case when it comes to challenging the government. Dictators around the world understand that if they use merciless tactics to impose their will, most people will be too afraid to stand up against them. These dictators will imprison and abuse anyone who dares to express any opposition to their rule. Fortunately, Thor Halvorssen is there to speak out and fight these corrupt authoritarian dictators every step of the way.

Thor Halvorssen has spent his life as a fearless human rights advocate. In contrast to most human rights activists, Thor Halvorssen has personally felt the pain resulting from the actions of an authoritarian government. Thor’s father was a government official in Venezuela who was conducting investigations concerning corruption within the government. He was arrested on trumped-up charges and subsequently tortured in prison. Thor contacted Amnesty International and they fought hard to secure Thor’s father’s release from prison after he had been incarcerated for 74 days.

In 1999, Thor Halvorssen increased his activism by appearing before a shareholders’ meeting of Lucent Technologies. At the time China was accused of forcing 8 million people into slave labor in over 1,100 factories. Halvorssen urged Lucent Technologies to adopt policies that would require China to certify that no slave labor was used in making the products sold to the company.

The Human Rights Foundation was founded by Halvorssen in 2004. The HRF fought hard to secure the release of 7 political prisoners who were being held in the jails of various countries around the world. It is the goal of the HRF to fight tyranny wherever they find it. The HRF has fought for human rights in countries such as China, Columbia, Vietnam and Cuba.

Thor Halvorssen is also a movie producer. Thor has produced numerous films that focus on human rights issues.

Celebrities Plead with Electoral College to Change Vote

Prior to the 2016 presidential election, many celebrities across the country showed significant support for Hillary Clinton. At the same time, many were very vocal of their lack of support for eventual winner Donald Trump. While Trump ended up winning the election by beating Clinton in the amount of electoral votes, the Electoral College is still set to meet on December 19 to cast their final and official votes.

 

While the Electoral College has historically voted along with the results of their individual states, they do have the ability to vote against their state’s decision. While this has practically never happened in the past, recent news articles (http://www.bbc.com/news/world-us-canada-38340115) point out that many of the same celebrities are pleading that the Electoral College voters go against their state’s wishes and change their vote.

 

Some of the most vocal celebrities have included Moby, Martin Sheen, and Debra Messing. They have continued to request that the Electoral College voters change their votes and choose to side with Hillary Clinton. While this has never happened in the past and Trump won the electoral vote by a sizable margin, it would likely only take two or three states to make a difference.

 

If an Electoral College voter does decide to change their vote, it will be a significant risk for their political careers as it would be a direct violation of their state’s trust. Furthermore, some states have tough legislative processes that would make it difficult for a voter to change the result set forth.

Anime Worth Watching At Any Age

 

Anime women are cute, sexy and powerful. Truth be told, they are also a bit on the dim side mentally. However, role models can be found, if you search hard enough. Here are two to consider.

 

Akane comes to the Public Safety Bureau after graduating at the top of her class. She is very smart, but is too innocent in the beginning. Compassionate, and tiny, she makes an unlikely looking hero. However, her character deals with adversity and loss with the spirit of a true warrior, and she mostly keeps all her clothes on.

 

Lieutenant Riza Hawkeye is one of the most interesting anime women, and is a superb soldier and firearm expert. She succeeds in a male-dominated world. She serves as a voice of reason and calm in a crisis. Hawkeye is respectful without tolerating abuse from anyone, no matter their rank. I love this charachter.

 

These are my three favorite Naruto quotes:

 

“Dattebayo!”

 

This quotes means “Believe it!” and it is very inspiring, even though it is also hilarious when Naruto winds himself up to the point that he needs to hear it.

 

“I won’t run away anymore… I won’t go back on my word… that is my ninja way!”

 

Naruto is an anime guy that lives in Konochagakure. He has a Demon Fox with a malevolent spirit living inside him. Every day, he has to fight and stay sane. Even though the character is silly, there is heroic stuff there.

The Real Reason Matthew McConaughey Doesn’t Answer to “Matt”

On a recent episode of Jimmy Kimmel Live!, the hilarious late night host interviewed Academy Award and Golden Globe winner Matthew McConaughey. McConaughey came on the show to promote his newest film, Gold. In the movie, McConaughey plays a businessman down on his luck who teams up with a geologist and discovers a huge gold deposit in the jungles of Indonesia. The film is based on the true story of the Bre-X mining scandal that occurred in 1993.

 

In true Jimmy Kimmel style, though, the host had a more random and interesting question to ask the actor. Most people who are named Matthew go by the nickname Matt, so Kimmel asked McConaughey if he ever answers to that name. McConaughey said he does not and the reason why reaches all the way back to his childhood. When McConaughey was a kid, he was playing at school with a new friend who addressed him as “Matt” and asked if he wanted to play on the monkey bars. McConaughey agreed when suddenly he was grabbed by the shoulders. His mother, who was also his kindergarten teacher, scolded him for answering to the nickname. She said “Don’t you ever answer to Matt again. I named you Matthew from the Bible.” He listened to his mother and has gone by his full name ever since.
