Engineer on the side of the road.

After the construction boom, the situation is dramatic in Brazil, and in crisis, even unemployed engineers have become Uber drivers. Since the economic crisis took place in Brazil, sweeping jobs in companies in various sectors, it is increasingly common to find someone who has joined the transport and delivery applications, such as 99, Uber, iFood and Rappi, to pay for their bills. But the worst is that it is not only professionals without specific qualifications who are resorting to the “uberization” of work. The employment recovery has been so slow that even more qualified professionals, such as engineers with higher education (complete or incomplete), areRead More →

Together, they concentrate the same wealth asRead More →

I usually search tide times in Fort Lauderdale when I’m about to go paddling as there are some spots that only allow for paddling when the tide is high. Everytime I search “Tide fort Lauderdale” I get these old results from Almanac that have incorrect tide times.

Magnet attracting social likes on social media.

Social media gave way to a new meaning for the term social capital. Social capital now means how much influence one can effect in society or a group.
