Louis R. Chenevert is a Canadian executive and entrepreneur who served as the chief executive officer of the United Technologies Corporation from 2008 to 2014. He previously worked with other companies, most notably General Motors where he worked for more than 14 years. Louis R. Chenevert is considered as one of the best leaders of the United Technologies Corporation because he managed to take the company to a whole new level after serving as their chief executive officer. He also introduced several changes that made the company one of the most profitable in the industry.
Back when he was still working for General Motors, Louis R. Chenevert had an idea to quit the vehicle manufacturing company and work for a different industry. One of his colleagues convinced him to work for the United Technologies Corporation and assured him that his experiences with General Motors would not be put to waste. Louis R. Chenevert decided to leave his company for 14 years to experience a new direction in his career. He initially worked with the subsidiaries of the United Technologies Corporation, specifically with PWC and P&W. These subsidiaries have two different goals – one is to create the smallest aircraft, while the other one targets to develop the largest engines.
Louis R. Chenevert managed to overcome all of the challenges that he faced while working with the subsidiaries of the United Technologies Corporation, and he gained the attention from the headquarters. Because of his exceptional performance, he was named as the new chief executive officer of the company in 2008. He used his ability to lead the company to success and launched programs which have benefited the company’s employees. He provided scholarships to the United Technologies Corporation employees, giving them the freedom to choose which degree they would want to take in college. Because of his programs, the United Technologies Corporation had a sudden surge in the number of engineers and other professionals. Another reform that he introduced is the expansion and strengthening of their relationship with their business partners, especially with the United States military and other similar organizations and institutions.
In 2015, Bradesco bank signed a deal to acquire the Brazilian HSBC branch for $5.2 billion. The deal was written in the history books as one of the biggest transactions undertaken by a Brazilian bank in the recent past. The transaction was spearheaded by none other than the president of Bradesco bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. The news about the acquisition quickly spread to every corner of the country like a bushfire. It left many people, including experts wondering if it was worth the risk for Bradesco bank to sign the mega-billion dollar deal.
However, in the eyes of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, one of the best banking officials in Brazil, it was the best thing that Bradesco bank has ever done. Initially, Luiz had developed a plan that would enable Bradesco bank to grow organically for the next ten years and regain its dominance in the Brazilian banking industry.
However, with the signing of the deal, Bradesco was able to grow six times ahead of its organic growth. The bank managed to increase the number of account holders, branches, and even assets to surpass that of their competitors. Since 2015, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has spent much of his time overseeing the smooth integration of HSBC bank into Bradesco.

More details on HSBC acquisition
The deal went down in 2015 and it was between HSBC bank and Bradesco bank, the second largest lender in Latin America. According to details of the acquisition, it would enable Bradesco to boost its assets by more than 16 percent. The main challenge of the acquisition is to decide how to integrate the two banks and ensure smooth operations. At the time of acquisition, HSBC Brazil division had over five million clients. The bank also had over 281 branches spread in different parts of the country and employed over 21000 employees.
At first, it was difficult for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi to convince other stakeholders that the deal was worth the money. But he successfully convinced them after presenting a complete plan that made the company enter into a 17.6 billion deal.
Before the acquisition of HSBC bank by Bradesco bank, it had begun to underperform, which the officials realized that it wasn’t profitable. The Brazilian HSBC was overstaffed and it failed to achieve significant profits. However, the acquisition will improve the performance of both banks since Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has a history of turning around the performance of big companies.
By spearheading the acquisition of HSBC bank, Luiz continued to add crème to his already fat CV in the banking industry. Bradesco has almost tripled its market share to overtake their rivals and competitors, Banco Itau. Besides, his performance also earned him a name as one of the best banking leaders in Brazil.
It is for this reason that the former chairman, Mr. Lazaro Brandao appointed Luiz as his successor when he resigned from the bank towards the end of last year. Trabuco’s position as the president of Banco Bradesco president was taken over by Octavio de Lazari who previously served as the chairman of Bradesco Seguros.

Direct, funny and provocative! These three words sum up Sean Penn’s latest novel “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff.”Penn has been known for a variety of things, form his acting to his social work and various publications pieces, but “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” strikes at the heart of what the public has conjectured about Penn’s style and message.
In the wake of Penn’s latest novel there has been a comprehensive response to negativity attached to a book that seemingly has no clear plot to follow. “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” is Penn’s first novel, and by the overall response, it seems he might have gotten off to a bad start. However, there have been many very successful novelist who also first began their writing careers with writing that clearly showed no commercial success.
Newspapers, who are known for their being able to decipher the literary chaff from the wheat have questioned Penn “why did you bury your truest feelings and loveliest writing so deep in muck?
Penn admits the essential difference between working on a film and a novel of one’s own is the feeling of support that either comes from collaborating with others or standing on one’s own.
Parallels to Reality
Many critics of “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” have tried to draw conclusions between the debut of the novel during Trump’s Presidential Election and some of the any and off-the-wall deeds of Bob Honey in the novel. Penn claims that there was no intent to cover the Presidential Election or Trump in the novel, but is merely coincidental. Penn admits that he has a greater desire to pursue his writing career for a considerable time into the future than propel his interest in making films.
“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” alienates himself by his self-love from modern culture and the internet age with its anxiety about glorifying the self-image thru selfies. Overall, says Penn, “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” takes a stab at the dark cloud that hangs over American culture. The Dark humor we find in American culture finds a shadow of reflection in the life of Bob Honey in “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, says Penn.” Dark Humor is the reality of darkness in America.

For the band, they know that being in the electronic music field is a competitive genre of music however when you know how to do it properly and you have well established artists backing you up, it becomes easier to keep in front of the others. Every genre is hard to stay on top of however for The Chainsmokers, they have managed to get to the top and stay there.
The other thing that helps the band stay where they are is, the duo sharing their lives with their fans through their music. In an electronic music genre, it is really uncommon for the bands to actually sing on their own music and then to top things off, to sing about the things which are really happening to the band. That is why they are on top of the world. It is because making decisions like these, they help to keep them where they are today. Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart knew that and used that knowledge to get them to the top.

In times of financial success, most people never consider an adverse occurrence. Although most people diversify their risks in anticipation for such happenings, some ramifications are unimaginable and can catch you off-guard. Borrowing from our historical experiences, the popular internet money, cryptocurrency might be up for some hard times soon. In “Paul Mampilly’s Advice on Bitcoin and the Cryptocurrency Bubble,” he explains how the cryptocurrency bubble is near its end. According to him, predicting exactly when the crash is going to happen is not possible, but on a statistical basis, it is bound to happen. He goes further to explain how the 1999 financial bubble exploded and most people who had invested heavily in certain companies found themselves penniless. Watch videos on Paul’s Youtube channel.
In the article, Paul Mampilly states that according to historical events and the 1999 bubble, those companies that were affected were large corporations. These had engaged in business for numerous years and possessed an extensive portfolio of investments spread across different financial sectors. The value of their stocks increased exponentially over a short period which was a real sign of the eventual crash. New investors didn’t even know what was about to hit them. According to Paul Mampilly, this is the same scenario that investors of cryptocurrency are going to undergo. A similar event to the 1999 financial bubble.
Cryptocurrency values are currently off the roof with one Bitcoin going at $19,000. If you are not conversant with these terms, then it would be valuable first to learn the definitions. A cryptocurrency is a digital currency that is only available online and doesn’t possess any regulatory body governing its usage and supply. The most popular cryptocurrency is Bitcoin that has a mysterious figure behind its development and actual utilization by the public. Other popular digital currencies followed suit and increased the value of digital currencies even further. Paul Mampilly warns that based on the plunge that Bitcoin took in 2018, other negative impacts that are going to destabilize the coin are yet to be felt.
The frequent occurrence of an economic bubble is fundamentally based on the excessive valuation of a particular asset way beyond its actual functional value. The fate is set when based on such excessive valuation, individuals start to invest in the asset which might not have a future. Mampilly states that one of the earliest signs of is a high public interest which creates more instability. Investors become emotionally connected to their investments and avoid selling their stakes. After the majority of individuals become part of the bubble, it unexpectedly bursts, leaving significant investors with nothing.

On September 25 of last year, it was reported that Rocketship United Academy in Davidson County, Tennessee has enjoyed academic improvement among their students. Part of this milestone has been attributed to changes in the way educators in Davidson County evaluate their students.
Traditionally, schools in Davidson County relied on measures of proficiency, or a quantification of a child’s mastery of a subject in a particular year, to measure achievement. Therein lies the flaw; it doesn’t give the full picture of a student’s time in school. To remedy this, Rocketship tracked student progress via a different metric: growth.
Unlike proficiency, “growth” compares a student’s academic performance in a school year compared to those of previous years. Instead of determining whether a student has reached a milestone, growth evaluates a student’s improvement compared to performance in prior years. The goal is to focus not on raw talent but on the work required to help underperforming students catch up with peers.
Indeed, this evaluation method, called the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress (MAP), has been utilized by over 7,400 schools around the world. Through this progress-oriented mindset, many students in other regions of the world have enjoyed considerable growth in academic achievement, especially so in impoverished areas. Seventy percent of students at Rocketship United Academy are from economically disadvantaged areas of Davidson County, and 146 students who were behind academically have recently caught up.
It is strongly recommended that parents in Nashville, Tennessee who want to track their child’s performance in school to not ask simply about the child’s proficiency, but in their growth. It may be a stronger path to their success.
