Betsy DeVos is a conservative Christian and Republican who has been working for the American people for many years. She has continuously fought to support educational choice and school voucher programs and is now the secretary of education for the United States. DeVos grew up in Holland, Michigan, and she worked for her father, Edward Prince, at his auto parts store when she was younger. She attended a private Christian high school and went on to attend Calvin College as a young adult. She became very interested in politics during her time in college, and this prompted her to serve as the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party after she graduated.
Betsy DeVos has been donating large sums of money to charitable organizations, over the years, through the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. The DeVos family is known for its charitable giving, and her husband, Dick DeVos, and herself have donated a combined amount of $139 million to nonprofits and charitable causes. Before being considered to serve as the secretary of education, DeVos opened the books on the foundation, which revealed that the couple had donated more than $8 million to educational nonprofits and causes in 2015, alone.
Part of that giving has gone to charter schools and private schools, and Betsy DeVos has been proud to donate to Potter’s House Christian School for many years. When she was younger, and her children were still attending schools, she visited Potter’s House. She was astonished to discover that many of the parents who sent their kids to the school were barely getting by financially. The reason was because they could not afford to pay for the costs of the school. This meant that many of them had to make large sacrifices in order to send their children there. This didn’t sit right with DeVos, and she decided to start helping out by paying the tuition costs for some of the students. Eventually, she began to help a lot more by donating money directly to the school.
Betsy DeVos continued to help other schools and students for years after this and continues to do so today. It is her hope that more legislation will be passed that allows tax dollars to be used to pay for these costs. This is how the public school system works, and DeVos would like to see charter and private schools included. She doesn’t believe that quality schools should be reserved for the wealthy only, and she has been a part of campaigns, organizations, and educational efforts to change this. The state of Florida has made a lot of progress on this front, and she has supported those who have fought by her side to make a change in Florida. In the end, Betsy DeVos would like every student in America to have the same opportunities.

A letter signed by 31 tourism businesses in support of the visa waiver proposed by the Brazilian government for Americans was released on Monday the 21st. Included among the agencies that signed the letter in favor of the waiver program are Unidestinos, Abrajet, Abracamping, and Guilherme Paulus to name a few. It is not surprising that businesses involved in the tourism sector would support the waiver program as it would result in more profit for them and entrepreneurs like Guilherme Paulus have dedicated themselves to bringing more tourism to Brazil. See more of Guilherme Paulus on facebook.
Despite the surprising growing trend in world tourism in recent years, in 2018 only 0.5% of the world’s 1.3 billion travelers chose Brazil as their destination. In the last year, the tourism industry balance deficit was U.S $12 billion – Brazilians spent U.S $18 billion abroad while foreigners spent only U.S $6 billion in Brazil. Because of this, the inclusion of visa-exemptions for strategic countries, such as the United States, by the Ministries of Foreign Affairs and Tourism are among the high priority government measures that were received with great enthusiasm by the tourism industry. Concurrent markets know that the United States is one of the largest issuers in the world and therefore adopts a differentiated visa policy.
For years Brazil has been living with a government that did not seem to understand that every dollar spent in Brazil generates employment, income distribution and social justice. Only the implementation of the electronic visa, in the last year, generated a 40% jump in the visa applications for Brazil.
Guilherme Paulus, an influential man in the tourism industry, has long proposed bringing more tourism to Brazil. Paulus believes that more tourism equals more jobs in the industry and that will benefit the people of Brazil. Guilherme Paulus has dedicated himself to business ventures in the tourism industry. One of Guilherme Paulus’ venture in the tourism industry is the establishment of GJP Hotels and Resorts. If more tourists visit Brazil that would result in his hotels employing more Brazilians. The hotel employees earn a good ward and would spend their money at other Brazilian businesses.

TMS Health Solutions have found hope for people with mental illness. The company works with people who have depression, OCD, memory issues, and anxiety. 17% of people will suffer an episode of clinical depression and the effects can be devastating. 40% of people who seek help for depression cannot find relief from traditional medication or talk therapy. They have treatment resistant depression. Having depression is debilitating enough, but to not find a solution through medication can be traumatic. Clinical depression will not normally go away untreated, and so TMS Health Solutions offers a variety of treatments.
TMS Health Solutions uses a treatment known as transcranial magnetic stimulation (TMS). While it does target the brain, it is not the same as electroconvulsive therapy. It is a non-invasive method of stimulating the neurotransmitters in the brain. It has been shown that there is less brain activity in patients suffering from depression. TMS stimulates the nerve cells that regulate mood. The treatment has no negative effects, and it can be carried out in the doctor’s office. Patients are fully awake during the procedure, and they can return to their normal activities immediately after the treatment.
TMS Health Solutions has a highly trained and certified team of psychiatrists who can conduct the process in 30-60 minute sessions that can last 4-6 weeks. A magnetic coil will be positioned lightly on your head, and while there may be a light sensation on the scalp where the magnetic coil touches the skin, there is no effect on sleep or memory. The staff at TMS Health Solutions can find a combination of medication, therapy, and transcranial magnetic stimulation to help each individual patient.
TMS Health Solutions has recently opened a second San Francisco office which brings the total amount of locations to four. They have offices around the Bay Area.
