Unique Aspects as Portrayed by José Borghi

Borghi was born in Presidente Prudente. While in junior high school, José was not certain of the career he would pursue. It was until his sister invited him for performance on exhibition of Vts that he got convicted about the course he would undertake. Simply, it was that performance at Castro Neves Theater that guided his way in career. Upon completion he undertook a bachelors’ degree in Advertising and Propaganda.This icon worked at Agency Standart Ogilvy as an editor and registered tremendous results. Due to his innovative nature, he set to launch his own agency, BorghiErh, which they co-founded with Erh Ray even without any godfather, bank or investors. The Brazilian advertising company did not receive anything less of success as its principals were devoted.

Jose Borghi has remarkable advertising attributes. He is a great mind and renowned pioneer of highly yielding campaigns. Most famous probably is the ‘Mammals of Parmalat,’ an engagement where children were clad like animals and sang extraordinary tinkles. Most of the campaigns he has initiated stand out, and have clung in people’s mind to date.Determination is a factor closely attributed to this icon. Like he says, it came to his realization that nothing comes easy. He was not to expect funding from anyone and so he had to work it himself. This helped him in recognizing his ability to push harder even during the bad times.

Notable Ladders by his Company’s Growth

In December 2006, Lowe bought the well-established company they had founded, having the name changing to Borghi Lowe. The company continued growing its scales not just domestically but also across the globe. Lately they combined with Lowe & Partners and the Mullen group, forming an organization called Mullen Lowe, with José Borghi and André Gomes heading it as the co-CEOs.As part of change into the new name, the organization is to change its name to ‘Mullen Lowe Brasil,’ as well as allowing a new crew to take up leadership. Having such like-minded CEOs has played a major role in the consistent growth of the company. Concentrating the Lowe networks in Brazil will enable them facilitate their activities with ease.

Chris Burch Marries Fashion and Technology to Provide Style

To most of us, fashion and technology are two different features. To Chris Burch, the two elements are co-related. For fashion to exist, technology must be employed. For technology to develop, there must be fashion and design. Chris Burch looks at fashion as a close friend to technology. He is fascinated by the effects of technology to fashion, especially in the future. He also monitors the synergy of the two elements and how they borrow one or more characteristics for development. To Burch, fashion and technology go way beyond the runway and commercials. Technology and fashion have grown together since the 80’s.




Unlike in the present century, people in the 70 are walked around carrying their best tunes in addition to radio stations. They also enjoyed their music in public with cassette decks. The 80’s took a transformation when movies were included in the list of story lines. In the 90’s, people invested in Walkmans for a personal feel of the music. It was portable and easier to walk around with hence convenient. A decade later, the Walkman was ditched for iPods. iPods are way smaller and efficient in playing music. It, therefore, means that the growth of technology depends on what seems fashionable to an individual.




As the fashion designer Anouk Wipprecht puts it, technology assumes a playground in which the deeper your dive, the more you discover. It always gives you the opportunity to grow and expand ideas. The stadium allows you, the fashion designer to generate more designs. The current synergy of fashion and technology is admirable. Most fashion designers find pleasure in the creation of high-quality products. This has been made possible through technology. Technology promotes high quality and functionality in addition to innovation. Most of the time, fashion depends on technology for popularity. For example, a television station promotes fashion through airing the styles on air.

Securus Technologies Helps To Prevent and Solve Crimes

On October 21, 2016, PR Newswire posted an article about the use of Securus Technologies software and investigative tools, through the eyes of its users.


First, a little background on Securus Technology. This is a company which offers a full line of civil and criminal justice technology solutions to law enforcement and correction agencies across North America. Their technology, according to customers, has helped to solve and prevent crimes, even by inmate to inmate, within their customer’s facilities.


Here are examples of how the company’s software and investigative tools have helped their customers.



  1. Use information from phone calls to secure a search warrant from a corrupt staff member. The staff member was arrested for trying to introduce contraband to their facilities.
  2. Monitor calls among inmates regarding alcohol use, drug selling and drugs in the facility.
  3. Use investigative tools that were provided by Securus, to give facility personnel the ability to conduct an investigation regarding harassment or potential threats to the facility and possibly the community.
  4. Securus’s LBS (local-based service) software services in concurrence with other law enforcement resources allowed a sheriff’s department the ability to recover well over a million dollars in illegal assets, drugs and money.


Though this is just a small sampling of the comments that were presented by the article, it is clear that the company’s investigative tools and service is not only important to the facilities they serve, it is also a service to protecting the public.


An Overview of Thor Halvorssen’s Thoughts on Celebrities Stance on Human Rights

In an article on Time, Thor Halvorssen (president of Human Rights Foundation, New York)explored the issue of entertainers learning the hard way about the consequences of celebrating dictators. This was after Erykah Badu performed for King Mswati III, an African dictator. At the same time seven Swazi nationals were apprehended for having on t-shirts that appeared to be criticizing the king. Swaziland has no political parties and criticizing the government is against the law. In the jail that the seven were thrown, there is an iconic human rights attorney and journalist (Thulani Maseko), who have leg irons on their feet.

PR Disaster

Erykah Badu’s management team did not respond to the concerns raised by a number of human rights groups and foundations and the artist was quick to brush off HRF and other groups. She retweeted a comment claiming that she does not owe anyone an explanation on her performance in Swaziland. This erupted a lot of commentaries and she was quick to attack her critics. She went on for a record eight hours attacking her critics on twitter. She later on claimed that she did not know about the political climate in the kingdom and that she donated her pay to the servants in the house she was hosted in.

Changing Times

In the past it was easy for entertainers to entertain human rights violators and get a small fortune off it. However, times have changed due to the advent of social media and smart phones. This has made it harder for such shows to be kept under wraps and it leads to PR meltdowns for such performers. The tyrants who hire such entertainers are also not spared from the unwanted attention they get from the whole debacle.

Way Forward

Thor Halvorssen notes that there are people who argue that artists are often apolitical and cannot play an active role in human rights struggle. He however, argues that some have taken the oppressor’s side. He advises that celebrities can leverage their celebrity power and take a public stand denouncing dictatorship. A single tweet from a celebrity would be enough to show solidarity and prove inspirational to people living under tyrannies. It would also serve as a warning shot to human rights oppressors.

JeanMarie Guenot Announces Next Drug Phase


JeanMarie Guenot, the Chief Executive Officer of Amphivena Therapeutics, has recently announced that the Food and Drug Administration has accepted their application for an investigative trial of one of their drugs geared towards fighting cancer. Known as AMV564, the drug has been designed to work closely with the Amphivena Therapeutics’ proprietary antibodies.


As a part of the application’s acceptance, Dr. Guenot is now prepared to expand the company’s current product availability and introduce it to new patients. It is hoped that by increasing the scope of their trial, the company will be able to gather more information on the effectiveness of the drug and adapt its current metrics accordingly. As of right now, the drug is currently being marketed towards patients that have acute myeloid leukemia.


For the first stage of this new trial, Amphivena Therapeutics will be studying the safety of rising doses in its patients. After a rigorous evaluation of the data from this trial, the company will then move on to reviewing its effectiveness in treating tumors and preventing their development. Through this process, Dr. Guenot and her leadership staff will be able to design specific measures that take into account the maximum safe dose for a patient and ensure that there are no unnecessary side effects. With this information, Amphivena Therapeutics will be able to seamlessly transition into the second phase of their program, where they put the drug through even more rigorous testing.


While Amphivena Therapeutics is known for working tirelessly to come up with new and innovative ways to combat cancer, this news really serves as further evidence that Dr. Guenot is not letting her Ph.D. go to waste. By working closely with research personnel to develop new methods of treating diseases, and then working with the financial side to ensure that they have the funding they need, JeanMarie Guenot has managed to transform her business into a well-respected outlet for developing drugs to combat cancer.   Newson6 covered one of the brilliant moves JeanMarie Guenot has done in the past in their story “Maverick Therapeutics and Takeda Announce Five-year Collaboration to Advance T-Cell Engagement Therapies”.
