Marcio Alaor BMG Recap

The 2016 Consumer Electronics Show (CES) went on as usual this past January in Las Vegas. This famous electronics show has been showing off current and trending innovative technology for 40 plus years, as well as shown the world how things are evolving.

The executive vice president of Banco BMG Marico Alaor reported that this year’s big headliners were a passenger drone, electric vehicles, and everyday items for the home that have cameras on them.

Marcio Alaor is the executive who takes executive vice president of Banco BMG, which leads Brazil in both personal and payroll loans. Alaor is known as a top business person in Brazil. BMG sponsors Brazilian football, and its logo appears on several teams.

Alaor is also known to be a great supporter of the local area where he is from in Brazil. He hasn’t forgotten his roots to his homeland and is known for using the bank to help the local community.

While several drones were shown off at CES 2016 – due to what Street Light Films reported, the Ehang 184 is different, it can carry a person and is like a small flying car. However, you don’t have to drive it, as it is programmed for its flight. It can fly up to 23 minutes, at a height up to 3.5 kilometers. It is made by Ehang, a Chinese company. The drone is controlled via a control center, which can take over it if necessary. You can see it in action at:

Electric cars were also present by Alaor, who showed off GM’s Chevrolet Bolt, which is expected out in 2017 at a cost of $30,000. Ford and Volkswagen also expect to put out hybrid cars, with Ford putting out 13 by 2020. Volkswagen plans to redo the classic Kombi, by creating an electric version prototype.

Additionally, now cameras are appearing on all kinds of objects. For instance, What if you wonder if you forgot milk as you are shopping at the store? Your fridge can send you a picture of the inside and you can check it out for yourself. That fridge will cost about $5K.

The very first CES was in 1967 and held in NYC. It has highlighted many new items such as the VCR in 1970, CD Players in 1981, DVDs in 1996, plasma TVs in 2001, and Blu-Ray DVDs in 2003. Next year’s 2017 CES is scheduled for January 5-8.

Does the New Documentary ‘Fed Up’ Get the Facts Straight?

We can look around us and realize that we are living in a society that is truly ‘fed up’. Our stomachs and our clothing have stretched to accommodate all the food we consume. The new documentary titled ‘Fed Up’ wants to bring to light some of the reasons behind our ever-expanding size and give an eye towards what the future will be like if we don’t stop super-sizing our meals.
But did writer and director, Stephanie Soechtig, get all her facts straight. Some would say ‘yes’, while other would argue that she did not.
‘Fed Up’ sends the message that there is a world-wide epidemic of obesity that is endangering our children now and in the future. Increased sugar consumption is responsible for the obesity epidemic and the food industry is to blame because they put hidden sugar into our food. And ultimately the government is responsible because it has not controlled the food industry as it should.
The documentary film shares the lives of several families who are struggling with childhood obesity and shares the so-called expert advice the families are given regarding how to remedy the situation.
For instance, Scechtig states that this year for the first time in history, more people will die due to the effects of obesity than die from starvation.
