Brazil Overtakes India To Become Number 2 In The Facebook World
2012-05-07 14:25:00
Brazil with more than 46+m Facebook user base has overtaken India as the second biggest country on Facebook. According to a report by a social analytical firm “Social Bakers” Brazil has registered a 22% increase in the last 3 months. India and Brazil have been in race for the second spot for long time now, while India has 45m+ and now sits on 3rd spot. This news throws light on tactical shift of social media consumption in the South American nation, as only in January 2011 did Facebook manage to overtake Google’s Orkut and become numero-uno social network in the country. Latin America is of great importance to Facebook, since reaching a user-base of 1 billion users will require the social networking giant to tap into the large reserves in this region and fend off the competition too. Source: Social Bakers While rise of Facebook in the country has been of concern to lot of companies specially gaming companies who have designed games and promotion setups according to Orkut...

Brazil?s Biofuel Boom: Mark McHugh
2012-04-12 22:03:00
The Energy Report: The biofuels sector encompasses a range of products. Can you give us an overview of this commodity space and how production processes differ? Mark McHugh: Biofuels are derived from agricultural commodities. There are three types of “first-generation”- biofuels, two liquids and one solid. Bioethanol is added to gasoline. It is produced largely from corn grown in the U.S., sugar beets grown in Europe and sugar cane grown in Brazil. Biodiesel is produced from vegetable oils and/or animal fats. The third biofuel is biomass or biomass pellets, which are used in electricity generation to replace coal. The pellets are produced from wood chips or renewable energy crops.

Gay Travel Brazil - A Murder every 24 Hours
2012-04-11 23:16:00
The International Gay and Lesbian Travel Association is  holding  its 2012 Convention in Brazil this week, while violence against gays in that country is making headlines - again. "Murders of gays and lesbians [in Brazil] are on the rise," according to the online news site The Daily Beast. ?Attacks against gays have climbed steadily for most of the last decade, with 272 murdered in 2011?one every 36 hours, according to GrupoGay da Bahía, a leading gay-rights group that tracks anti-gay violence. This year, GGB reports, it?s even worse, with 75 murders in just the first 10 weeks. That?s one every 24 hours.? These statistics are shocking for a country often cited as one of the gay-friendliest in South America. However, reports of gay-murders in Brazil are not new. According to a January 2011 article by Gay City News, there were 121 gays murdered in 2007, 187 in 2008, 198 in 2009 and 250 in 2010. - I am wondering what is the count of locals being murde...

Property rights in Brazil improve
2012-04-04 02:00:00
Brazil has made gains with its property rights for the fourth consecutive year. According to the Property Rights Alliance International Property Rights Index (IPRI), the nation saw its total score increase by 0.1 points compared to 2011. Every metric in the physical property rights category either improved or remained the same, which may add to the appeal of Brazilian real estate for investors. Overall, the country is ranked eighth in the South American region and 62nd globally. Last month, Samantha Gore, sales manager at UV10, stated she does not believe the Brazilian real estate market will experience a crash, despite the significant price increases recorded for residential property in the nation. She explained that, unlike in Europe, many of the homes in Brazil are being purchased by domestic owner-occupiers rather than investors. Ms Gore commented: "Instead of crashing, the consensus is that values will take a more modest path of growth."

Brazil sees significant house price growth
2012-03-09 01:00:00
The value of homes in Brazil climbed significantly over the course of 2011. According to the Knight Frank Global House Price Index, the cost of buying a residential property in Brazil increased by 26.3 per cent between the final quarter of 2010 and the same period a year later. The country also recorded a 4.2 per cent quarterly rise in the final three months of 2011, putting it well ahead of the other 51 nations surveyed. At the bottom of the table is Ireland, which has experienced a 17 per cent decline in the price of homes year-on-year, making the difference between the best and worst-performing destinations 43 per cent. Knight Frank suggested Brazil's real estate market is doing so well thanks to "strong population growth, rising household wealth and an expanding mortgage market". Last month, Global Property Guide published data which also highlighted Brazil as one of the world's top-performing property sectors. In its survey, the country came second to India, w...

Brazil Looks Like a Buying Opportunity Again
2012-01-17 15:34:00
Majority of the population now in the middle class for the first time ever Brazil continues to impress as a country and economy, due in no small way to its government’s multi-year efforts and determination to make it an important global presence. Brazil is the fifth-largest country in the world by geographical area and population (190 million), and now has the sixth-largest economy, having surpassed the United Kingdom last year. It’s long been known for its dirt-poor city slums, which are appalling. But its booming economy of recent years has increased the purchasing power of its population and moved an estimated 20 million out of poverty, with the majority of the population now in the . . . → Read More: Brazil Looks Like a Buying Opportunity Again

Forget Brazil: Invest in this Emerging Market Instead
2011-10-27 17:00:00
Every investor knows diversification is crucial in order to maintain a successful portfolio. And in times like these, with the U.S. economy on a sluggish growth path, it really pays to invest in foreign markets. For a while now, emerging economies such as Brazil, Russia, India and China have all been catching the attention of investors, and for good reason. But it pays to be looking for the next big growth story, too. And right now, my eyes are on one country with a particularly bullish outlook: Chile. Chile's economy may be overshadowed by all the hype surrounding its Latin American neighbor, Brazil. But the country has a stable, prosperous economy and is becoming a leader . . . → Read More: Forget Brazil: Invest in this Emerging Market Instead
The 2014 World Cup trek
2011-10-21 22:15:00
FIFA have released the dates and venues for the matches of the 2014 World Cup finals in Brazil, with the patience of traveling supporters set to be tested once again.Instead of keeping group games within a couple of venues located close to one-another, as used to be the norm, fans will face trips of up to 2,000 miles in order to watch all of their nation's opening clashes.One unlucky Group A team will begin in Sao Paulo, then trek 1,680 miles (2,700 km) up to Manaus, before an odyssey of 3,538 miles (5,698km) across the Amazon to Recife, a voyage one team from Group D and another from Group G must also endure. Even the hosts are not spared, with the seleçao kicking off in Sao Paulo before flying 1465 miles (2357km) to Fortaleza and then making another journey of 1042 miles (1677km) to Brasilia.The explanation for clocking-up so many air miles, according to the organising committee, is the varying weather, with the south of Brazil much cooler than the north."The climate is so differ...

What will Olympic status do for golf in Brazil?
2011-06-23 15:56:00
August 5th 2011 marks five years to go before Rio de Janeiro hosts South America?s first Olympics and golf returns to sports? biggest stage for the first time since 1904. Tim Maitland looks at how the sport is evolving in Brazil as 2016 inches nearer. From Rio de Janeiro?s perspective, the final piece of the Olympic jigsaw was put into place in June when, during the IOC Coordination Commission?s visit, the decision to build a new course in Barra da Tijuca, rather than to refashion the nearby Itanhanga Golf Club, was made. For the Rio 2016 Organising Committee it meant that the venue master plan was complete. With the five-years-to-go point upon us, it gives golf fans a clearer picture of what golf in the Olympics will be like, with the International Golf Federation still working on the qualification premise it presented to the Olympic family when it successfully made its bid for inclusion in 2009: the top 15 men and women in the world rankings (with a limit of four p...

LPGA Ambassadors on Olympic Golf Mission to Brazil
2011-03-01 19:32:00
Three top golfers on the LPGA Tour have decided to become golf ambassadors in order to gain more interest in the sport and to insure future Olympic success. Cristie Kerr, Suzann Pettersen and Meghan Francella are "on a mission" to Brazil to spread the word about the great golf the LPGA has to offer. The three ladies have committed to play in the HSBC LPGA Brazil Cup at the Itanhanga Golf Club in Rio De Janeiro on May 28/29 partly because golf will be featured in the 2016 Rio Games. The field will be made up of thirty golfers and event purse will be $720,000. Another reason for Suzann's call to action is because Pettersen was part of the official delegation that successfully presented golf?s "case" to the IOC in Copenhagen sixteen months ago. She believes the HSBC LPGA Brazil Cup has a vital role in growing the popularity of golf in South America before it returns to the Olympic family for the first time since 1904. Pettersen further said she wanted, "sports fans in Brazil t...
