For the very first time, Mexico held its own version of Best Franchisee of The World competition in order to send their own representatives to compete at the international event. The competition is a way for business and franchise owners to showcase their leadership skills and talents. People also get to learn from other franchisees to see what makes a business successful so that they can implement these new practices within their own franchises.
The 2015 competition was held in Florence, Italy and takes place every year. People gather from all around the world, including countries like Portugal, Spain, France, Hungary, and Mexico. Judges evaluate franchisees based on a few different factors. They want a leader who has created immense savings programs, who encourages and motivates employees to do their job, and what improvements that have made to the overall system. Omar Yunes, Franchisee of Sushi Itto scored high in all of these categories. Diego Elizarrarras, one of the event judges, said Omar Yunes won the top award because of the relationship he formed as a Franchisee with his franchise.
Omar Yunes first took control of Sushi Itto at age 21. He now has ownership of 13 different units around Mexico and has expanded his employee count to approximately 400 people. He has expanded the franchise to places like Vera Cruz, Puebla, and Mexico City. Yunes plans to continue the growing and expanding his franchise and is able to do so with the help of the recognition received as Best Franchisee.
A second competitor worth noting is Ivan Tamer. Ivan Tamer is Franchisee and owner for Prendamex. Prendamex is a network of Pawnshops located in Mexico. Tamer was recognized for the new tools and marketing system he implemented with Prendamex. The company has seen a lot of success so far and other businesses are trying to emulate his practices. This was the first time both Ivan Tamer and Omar Yunes attended and were recognized at the Best Franchisee of The World competition. It’s also a first for Mexico to have representatives from their own country be recognized on an international level.

Normann Pattiz, the executive PodcastOne Chair and his counterpart Tom Webster, the strategy VP at Edison Research released the results of a number of comprehensive studies that were being conducted. These studies involved five chief statewide consumer brands from different categories of products and services.
The study, which was conducted for the first-time ever took place during the last six months of 2016 and successfully showed the level of positive impact that podcast advertising had on specific messaging recall, brand recollect and intention to purchase. The study also revealed a number of key findings.
In 2016, Edison Research was charged with undertaking three different studies as a way of checking the efficacy of podcast advertising on five chosen national brands. A number of these brands were well known to consumers and were just launching some new messaging while others were little known brands seeking trial as well as increased awareness.
The three studies involved carrying out an online survey just before the adverts ran and again after they had run for about 4 – 6 weeks. In the end, the studies revealed that the podcast audiences were highly receptive of brand messages and portrayed a higher degree of willingness to buy or consider the goods.
Normann Pattiz emphasized that the core focus of PodcastOne has been to autonomously gauge how this format was enhancing brand awareness well beyond what the conventional advertising methods achieved. He added that the great results validated the company’s multi-tiered advance towards incorporated advertising and capacity.

Doug Levitt is a former CNN correspondent who switched careers to chase his dream of becoming an artist. He attended Cornell University and later he received a full ride scholarship to the London School of Economics. While Mr. Levitt was studying there, he earned his Master’s degree in International Relations. He went to work for CNN as a foreign correspondent but felt like something was missing, so he quit his job, boarded a Greyhound Bus, and began to chase his dream of becoming a musician, and The Greyhound Diaries was born.
The Greyhound Diaries
Mr. Levitt first got the initial idea for The Greyhound Diaries when he started chasing his music career. He boarded a Greyhound bus and saw all types of different people struggling to get by. He wanted to record their stories and struggles and began doing so under the name The Greyhound Diaries. It started with a six-week bus ride in 2004 and has been ongoing ever since. Doug Levitt was fascinated by this culture he found on the Greyhound buses, and he admits that the buses are seen as a last resort for most people as a form of transport. As of late 2016, Doug Levitt has racked up over 120,000 miles crisscrossing the United States for his project. He has seen parts of the United States most people don’t realize exists and has taken over 20,000 pictures documenting the everyday life of individuals struggling to survive.
A Therapeutic Ride
Doug Levitt stated that riding the Greyhound bus and opening up to strangers about his father’s suicide helped him heal. He claims that talking about your issues or problems help to resolve them, and there is no better place than a Greyhound bus because you see all kinds of people. A few of the people that he met stand out in his mind for making the biggest impact were an army veteran who carried the guilt of his friend not coming home, a grandmother who survived trauma only to turn to drugs before turning her life around again to become a counselor, and a Marine who suffered from panic attacks.Mr. Levitt offers an unflinching look into the world that is often forgotten by mainstream America. He will continue to make people think long after this project has wrapped up.
Have you ever heard of the End Citizens United (ECU) committee? They are a group of political reformers that want to revamp the political system to a more transparent one. They have already raised millions of dollars towards that goal.
Among the political action committees, End Citizens United is one of the most supported and most important movements that fight for a better political system. They have grassroots donors that contribute towards their goal every month. At the beginning of 2017, for example, they have been able to raise millions, and the PAC is trying to hit a $30 million margin by the 2018 midterm elections for Congress.
The Citizens United was a disaster that happened long ago in the history of the United States. In the American political system, there was a landmark that was accepted by the supreme court to allow freedom of speech and capital support for organizations and corporations to fund the candidates and assist their campaigns.
Because of that, elections are now full of interests and people with wealth behind each and every campaign that we see on the television. The real fights for a better education, for freedom or a society without prejudice, those are all behind a world of interested investors who find ways to use people in power to make political actions that would support their selfish plans. It’s been happening for ages, and it’s nothing new, but not everyone is aware of that problem, not every American even knows what the Citizens United landmark is.
The Political Action Committee aims to put an end to this by electing their own Democrats who are sympathizers of the reform. In early 2017, the PAC was able to raise more than $500,000 in funding to support the candidacy of Jon Ossoff, a Democrat that also wants to use his voice to end this corruption. Jon Ossoff is one of those political figures that also intends to see the Citizens United end like many other Americans do.
But, if the End Citizens United Committee wants to put a stop to the monetization of campaigns, why do they use that own broken system to their advantage? It’s simple, to raise awareness to the problem, and show how broken and unreliable the landmark is and how it breaks the meaning behind elections.
Jon Ossoff was able to surpass that amount, reaching $4 million for the April 18 special election. Now, they are aiming towards other Democrats who are also pro-reform, like Rob Quist.
On 22 May 2017, the committee announced that they had achieved a margin of $200,000 in support to their newest political candidate, Rob Quist. Rob is a personal favorite of the donors of ECU because he is strictly against the Citizens United system and wants to use his influence in the American politics to raise awareness and vote for the end of the landmark.
As months’ pass, the PAC achieves more and more success in changing the political figure of the U.S.
Warren Buffett has been known for wagering $1,000,000 to charity in which he’s capable of achieving greater returns on investments that groups of hedge fund managers by investing in a passive index fund of the S&P 500. That bet is going to have its decision made this year, and it’s looking like Mr. Buffet is probably going to be collecting on it. Mr. Warren Buffet is correct in the sense that there’s too many expensive and mediocre funds that end up shortchanging investors.
It’s imperative for investors to support the commitments he’s made to simple and low cost investments for the long term. Mr. Buffett’s approach of investing has been “bottom-up” in which he’s been able to rigorously build durable portfolios and analyze companies. His strategies of investing have proven themselves throughout several decades. No one has necessarily been better at delivering the memo that Americans should be saving much more for their years of retirement. They have been advised to get invested and continue to stay invested.
