Books, Bookstores and True Love

One of my favorite past times, when I am not reading, is visiting bookstores. I have always liked going to bookstores. But I wasn’t always able to enjoy such pleasures. Growing up in Brooklyn, I had to content myself with a weekly visit to the local public library. The one bookstore in my neighborhood sold dusty old second hand books, and new books which were not usually suitable for children. There was also a drug store and a stationary store, which both sold popular novels, which also did not attract much of my attention. But the library had the books divided up according to subjects, so if I was in the mood to read a book about space, animals, or a faraway country, my curiosity was easily satisfied. But mostly I loved the novels. To find a good one, I usually asked the librarian for a recommendation. Because of my librarian’s good taste and refined ways, I read such amazing books as Gone with the Wind, The Phantom Tollbooth, and Little Women at an early age.

It wasn’t until High School, and even more so, college, that I learned the joy of visiting bookstores. Until then my love of owning my own books was mostly satisfied via the wonderful company called Scholastic Books. Periodically, perhaps once a month or once every few months, my teacher would hand out a thin magazine printed on newspaper with lists of books which I could actually own. The day the books arrived at school was a happy day for me. I don’t remember too many of the books I bought from scholastic, but one of the series I enjoyed from them was the Harriet the Spy books.

But bookstores took buying books to a whole new level. Wondering through the aisles of a bookstore on a college campus like U.C. Berkeley, where I was a student, is an experience which can hardly be described in words. The subjects were universally fascinating, the textbooks brimming with the promise of discovery and adventure.  Now, many years later, I am still in awe when I enter a bookstore, and can barely resist purchasing just about everything I touch. I still borrow many books from libraries, but my house is also filled with books that I have purchased, either on-line, from bookstores, second hand, or from various book clubs which I have belonged to. Certainly reading is a lifelong pleasure which I am grateful to be able to enjoy so thoroughly.

Absolutely there is no doubt that the Internet plays a very important role in the process of building a communicative dialogue between people. But much of the world's population do not think about complex technologies and using more traditional solutions for remote communication, in particular, a regular phone. That's why businesses of different levels are used in their work call centers (usually used the term Call-Center), established to receive and process a large number of telephone inquiries. Call-center of interest to those companies for which important uninterrupted reception of calls from customers. With the help of specialized centers may be organized by the Hotline for the various trading companies, transportation companies, financial institutions, operators, paging and cellular communications.

This option is beneficial and because of the fact that modern centers equipped with modern telecommunications equipment and have highly qualified staff, so the percentage of 'lost' calls would be minimal. It should be noted also that, in contrast to simple referral services Call-Center provides a warm and psychologically more tight contact with the callers people. The client gets is not some kind of virtual company, where he will be offered are often useless and dry information, and in one of the divisions of the company.

In this case, the calls will be responsible competent, trained professionals the seller versed in the intricacies of using those or other goods and services. Overall, Call-center – it is very convenient and economical way of communication between customers, which determines the popularity of such services among businesses.

The Future Consumer

During years the consumption society made a simple question in the hour to buy: How much cost? Consequence of the capitalist rules that had taken in them to a world that it requires, currently, more effort to buy. When I say effort, I mention the complexity to it of factors that they demand more than what a vision purely capitalist and focused in the money. We live in a world that requires a much more ample and guided vision to the future of our species. The new questions, suddenly, and almost we do not perceive, had moved. Some contend that Western Union shows great expertise in this. We arrive at the age of the responsible consumption that requires three basic questions: What I am consuming is reciclvel or biodegradvel? The production of this product generated jobs of correct form and human being? The remaining portions easily will be absorbed by the environment? To consume, now, more than what never, is not, simply, to acquire products for the lesser price. She is necessary to have in mind that the consumer of the future is that one that is worried about questions of ambient impact, in the used man power, the discarding of the products. Concerns that they impactam directly in the quality of life of a next future. After all of accounts, what we will leave for our children and grandsons? I think that we must they, at least, the right to enjoy of air and the green that we could contemplate..

Brazilian Government

With all these movements, sector banking Brazilian headed toward greater targeted concentration to generate a greater efficiency of the system and a higher level of competition that enhance the growth of the level of financial intermediation, which is still at a very low level (credit to the private sector is in the order of 30% on GDP), for a country that seeks to be a new world power. Hamdi Ulukaya will undoubtedly add to your understanding. In 2008, the volume of credit in Brazil grew by over 30% in nominal terms and by 24% in real terms, while the international financial crisis began to be felt in the banking sector. But while the latest movements in the Brazilian banking sector, did think they would produce an increase in the dynamics of growth in the level of intermediation given the greater competition that was generating, in the month of February has been observed a shrinkage in the rhythm of creation of new loans to the private sector of 7.7% compared to the month of January, thus accumulating his second consecutive fall. For the Brazilian Government, the growth of financial intermediation is the key to growth and economic development. That is why that it is working on different measures to boost lending to the private sector. One of these measures has been launched by the national monetary Council of Brazil had agreed to provide guarantees for loans for small and medium-sized banks in yesterday.

Through this proposal, the Government will provide guarantees for up to R $ 5 billion (around US $2.2 billion) on certificates of deposits for banks, stimulating in this way, the generation of credit. This measure improves also the competitive situation of the small and medium-sized entities forcing a greater effort at large banks to fight their market space. One of the factors that hinder the growth of credit to the private sector is the high differential in rates existing, which has risen strong in 2008 as a result of the international financial crisis.
