In 1993, Fabio’s son joined the organization. José Auriemo Neto brought great ideas to the firm. In respect to this, he became the Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the company. Under his leadership, the firm has experienced multiple successes. He got JHIF the rights to develop malls. This made it possible for JHSF to build the Metrô Santa Cruz mall, which was the first mall in Brazil. Fortunately, it had a great reception and this opened way for the development of other malls In Brazil. Besides malls, the JHSF has also developed hotels, restaurants, and airports.

Jose Neto is a very aggressive entrepreneur. With JHSF doing great in Brazil, he has decided to take it to the next level. The firm is now operating at a national level and is responsible for the existence of 815 building located on 5th Avenue in New York.

The vision of the two brothers is finally coming true. It is crucial that investors understand that believing in their dream is the first step of living their dream.

Jed McCaleb leads Stellar in innovating a new universal payment system

Stellar Development Foundation is a company that is looking for means of making the cryptocurrencies industry better by the innovation of a new payments system that will be safer and easy to use. The current systems do not allow for people to make payments using cryptocurrencies with ease. The system that is being created by this firm is one which allows people to send payments in the form of cryptocurrencies and reach the recipient in any form that they may wish to have it. Stellar is working with banking institutions which will facilitate these payments, for instance, and receive money just like an email is done. The system will also make it possible for people to send, it will be possible to send bitcoin, and the recipient will receive money in dollars.

Stellar Development Foundation is an organization that was founded in 2014 by Jed McCaleb and other players in the industry. Jed McCaleb is one of the people who has spent time in the industry for a long time. Immediately Bitcoin was invented, he was among the first people who took advantage of the new opportunities that came with it. By 2010, he was already making innovations. He was the first innovator to create a centralized exchange.

According to Jed McCaleb, Stellar technology is going to be the greatest innovation since blockchain was implemented. The security of the network system is the main concern especially with the ease that comes with sending money. Stellar is implementing a security system where machines will be able to connect based on “trust.” Machines which are not trustworthy will not be able to create a connection meaning that it will be hard for money to be stolen.

Jed McCaleb says that the company is developing a “consensus” algorithm which has been opened for the public to throw in their contributions. Stellar is an open source forum where anyone is free to add to the growth of the system. According to Jed McCaleb, he wants to create a system where anyone can use the system and still achieve the desired results. The new system has been getting a positive review from experts in the industry. Although it is still a paperwork, it is likely to be a great system once implemented.

Academy of Art University Alumni Award

The Academy of Art University has taken up residence in San Francisco since 1929. There are over 20 departments that students can choose to study in; some of these departments include photography, television and digital media, motion pictures, graphic design, fashion, architecture, acting, and animation. With over 25,000 graduates the university has a number of alumni that have made quite a name for themselves.

Jason Sperling graduated from the Advertising department in 1993. He was the leader of the creative team that was responsible for creating the wildly popular and award winning “Mac vs. PC” advertisement. Denise Cherry attended the Academy of Art University’s School of Interior Architecture & Design; she is credited as being the main designer for the Facebook headquarters corporate office, which is award winning. Chris Milk attended the School of Motion Pictures and Television. He has made a name for himself directing music videos for the famous Kanye West and U2.

Most recently, two students who attended the School of Fashion Design won two out of five of the prestigious CFDA Awards. The overarching theme of the night was diversity and inclusiveness, which all designers portrayed in their work. Susan Zienty won the Kenneth Cole Footwear Innovation Award, which gives her a $50,000 annual stipend and the opportunity to have a year-long fellowship at Kenneth Cole. Cameron Orland won the $25,000 Liz Claiborne Design Scholarship Award.

The shoe Susan Zienty designed was influenced by her experience with foster care. She used a thick and sturdy platform heel to depict the strength and support a foster child needs in their life. Often times a child in foster has emotions that run the gamut. Susan used these traits as inspiration for the rich colors and textures used in her design. Within the heel of Zienty’s shoe design are salvaged materials and precious stones; these were used to indicate the memory of one of her foster-sisters.

For Cameron Orland’s award, she was required to submit a number of artifacts that contributed to her collection. She submitted an essay, a resume, and a 44-page portfolio. The portfolio was, perhaps, the most critical portion of her submission. Orland’s portfolio not only held a sketchbook, but also eight different looks that included flats, details, and garment draping. The overall inspiration for her submission was the celebration of the aging process. It celebrates the wrinkles, vitiligo, hyper-pigmentation, and freckles that are experienced as people age.

These two award winners attribute much of their success to the opportunity they had to attend the Academy of Art University. They were given the knowledge and experience necessary to excel in their industry.


CEO Robert Ivy — American Institute of Architects First Time Recipient of the Polk Award

The Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters (MIAL) usually credit photographers, visual arts, and musicians with its Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement commendation. In it, the Institute has honored some outstanding achievers for more than 35 years. However, CEO and Mississippi native, Robert Ivy has recently received the Polk Award. Even more, the AIA Vice president is a first-time recipient of such honor.

Of course, Ivy has been AIA’s Executive Vice President and CEO since 2011. Also, he is an author, writer and a worldwide architecture commentator. So, it comes as no surprise; he takes his spot with other Noel Polk Award honorees. Also, the former US Navy officer held a position as Editor in Chief for McGraw-Hill’s Architectural Record before becoming a part of the AIA.

With Robert Ivy’s management, Architectural Record grew to be the most widely spread architect journal worldwide and earned many awards — which included the Ellie Awards for excellent service. The MIAL organization will formally present, both Mississippians — architect, Ivy and Andrew Cary Young (stained-glass artist) with the Lifetime Achievement Award during June 2. Interestingly, Mr. Ivy has an honorary title, Master Architect, which came from the national architectural association.

Similarly, the camaraderie, Alpha Rho Chi has recognized other well-known architects around the world. Nonetheless, there’s no one in Mississippi to make architecture available to the community like Robert Ivy. For that reason, the MIAL’s President Nancy Laforge has so taken notice. What’s more, Robert Ivy has grown the AIA’s area throughout the world. Now, the Institute in all of its 160-year-old record has the highest subscription level.

So, when you become a member of AIA, the Institute will provide resources to help you with your business. Indeed, we face many issues in our communities and the world. Thus, the American Institute of Architects provides its participants with tools to connect to the public in finding the right solution to those issues. When the AIA started in 1857, it aimed to produce more sustainable buildings, communities, and neighborhoods.

Afterward, the organization support ideas that will benefit the public’s well-being and strengthen economic durability. At the moment, under the guidance of Robert Ivy, the American Institute of architects are working through 200 or more local and state chapters in performing and providing the highest professional expectations.
