Seasoned investment guru Mr. Ted Bauman did a comprehensive article breaking down the current limitations of bitcoin’s underlying technology hindering it from achieving its overall goal of becoming the most popular form of conducting transactions considering how secure it is and the fact that it is a decentralized form of currency. According to Ted Bauman, the function of a currency is to process transactions not only securely but also in a timely fashion. This is yet to be achieved by bitcoin as it currently compares very poorly when put side by side with the leading transaction processing platforms such as Visa which according to publicly available data has the capability to process more than 24,000 transactions each second as opposed to bitcoin which can currently process 6.5 transactions per second. In addition, there are reports of users waiting for 10 minutes on average to process a single transaction on bitcoin, with the longest waiting time recorded to be over 40 minutes. The unfortunate fact is that the situation can only worsen as more people join the Bitcoin platform.
That being said, there is a huge balancing task that will definitely go into trying to improve bitcoin’s underlying technological infrastructure. This is because bitcoin is an encrypted digital currency which exists within a network of computers hence its decentralized nature. This means that whenever a transaction occurs, all nodes connected to the bitcoin ecosystem have to update in real-time making it secure and private, free from manipulation from governments and the financial agencies like the central banks. Research has shown that there have been conscious and deliberate efforts aimed at trying to reduce the painstakingly long transaction processing times. In order to reduce the processing time, the most probable solutions involve reducing the amount of data processed in each and every bitcoin mining block. Conversely, the size of bitcoin’s mining blocks can be increased so that more data can be up for processing at every go. The tradeoff is that all of these approaches involve moving some data out of the blockchain, as a result, reducing the security of the Bitcoin platform.

When Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi resumed leadership as the president of Bradesco Bank in 2009, the bank had been on a downward stream. Its rival Itau Unibanco had even overtaken it. But with his business acumen and leadership skills, Mr. Carlos has led the bank to its former glory. According to Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, “leadership alone is not a goal,” our goal is to serve the municipalities in which we operate better.”
In 2015, Mr. Trabuco made the boldest move which saw the bank even grow further. With the approval of the board, he bought HSBC’s Brazilian branch at a whopping $5.2 billion which became the largest business in Brazil in that year. This acquisition opened the stage for Bradesco to grab its leadership position in the private segment.
The market share of Bradesco increased tremendously outperforming Itau Unibanco regarding branch network, total investment funds and a number of account holders. In light of this, Mr. Cappi was awarded 2016’s THE FINANCE ENTREPRENEUR OF THE YEAR by MONEY.http://www.infoescola.com/curiosidades/trabuco/
Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi was born in Marilia in 1951. He is a graduate of the University of Sao Paulo with a degree in Philosophy. Mr. Trabuco started working in the banking sector at the bank in1969, and ever since he has acquired a diverse experience in the banking industry. He has held different positions within the bank and has followed a hierarchical order in the bank until he was appointed the President of the Bank in 2009. However, he had been the president of Bradesco Seguros between 2003 and 2009. Bradesco Seguros has contributed about 30% of Bradesco’s profits up to date.
From the moment, he resumed the presidency of the bank; he has worked round the clock to revolutionize the bank. He is always on the lookout for market professionals who can inject more blood to the bank’s growth. His work has greatly borne fruit as the bank has regained its former glory.
In 2015, he was invited by the then President of Brazil, Dilma Rousseff to take on the role of the Ministry of Finance. However, he declined the offer. In an interview with one executive of the bank, he says “Mr. Trabuco was born to work for Bradesco”.
Julia Jackson is a San Francisco native whose passion and commitment to winemaking can be traced back to her family roots at Jackson Family Wines. Early on she learned the importance of hard work and, from picking grapes in grueling hot weather as a kid to working at several of the family vineyards afterschool and during summer breaks, the message was well received. The wisdom of her late vintner father coupled with the business acumen of her mother, Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke respectively, were the ideal seeds for an imaginative youth who was destined for the wine industry.
Carrying the lessons of the wine business with her to the Bordeaux, Julia spent a summer immersed in her other passion, French culture. She expanded her depth of knowledge about the wine business by learning the French style of winemaking and, being fluent in French, she went on to become a language teacher during her studies at Scripps College where she earned her BA in Studio Art. Since then she has supplemented her education with studies in General Management at Stanford University. Check this website for more info at Cambria Wines.
Today Julia offers a distinct perspective on the wine industry in Sonoma and asserts that Cabernet is one of the best varietal of wines in the region, despite the fact that it is most known for Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Even with the responsibility of continuing a powerful legacy, Julia is paving her own path with projects like Cenyth, a wine label founded on friendship in collaboration with her long-time friend Hélène Seillan, and Rex Apps which Julia co-founded gives app users word-of-mouth restaurant and bar suggestions from trusted sources. With modern and innovative ideas like these, there is no doubt Julia will help the family business grow well into the future for the next generation of Jacksons.

She served as the chairman of the Council’s Education Committee, which required her to visit thousands of city schools.

After successfully completing her Bachelors of Arts at the University of Pennsylvania as well as her Ph.D. in American history from the John Hopkins University, Eva Moskowitz became a history professor and educated many of her students about civics at Prep for Prep, which is a program that is specifically designed for minority students.
