Roberto Santiago is a versatile businessman and entrepreneur based in Brazil and is involved in many different sectors. Over the years, Roberto Santiago has made a name for himself in the real estate sector, where he has invested extensively. One of the primary reasons for which he is well-known for in Brazil is for the shopping malls he owns, which includes Mangabeira Shopping Mall and the famous Manaira Shopping Mall. Both these malls are designed and developed as per the international standards to ensure that the people in Brazil can experience world-class entertainment and amenities in their cities.
Roberto Santiago has also invested in sectors other than real estate, which includes the stock market, Forex and commodities, entertainment, and so on. One of the latest shopping malls that were launched by Roberto Santiago is the Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall, which opened doors to the public in the year 1989. It is a small city in itself and has a bank and a school as well and is spread through the area of 135,000 square meters. It is amongst the most popular as well as extensive shopping malls in Brazil. The city longed for a facility like that, and with Manaira Shopping Mall, people got just exactly what they were looking for to improve their lifestyle. It housed many luxurious, national and international brands. Manaira Shopping Mall became the Mecca for shopping in the city, and people loved what the mall has to offer.
Roberto Santiago had earlier developed Mangabeira Shopping Mall as well, which gave him the necessary experience in the construction, conceptualization, and the development process of a shopping mall. One of the things he noticed about shopping malls is that it needs a vast parking space. It is for this reason Roberto Santiago Manaira Shopping Mall has a parking space of nearly 3,000 vehicles. It ensures that people can park their cars with ease and doesn’t have to worry about parking at all when visiting the mall. There are many different types of recreational activities happening at the mall to ensure that the visitors are engaged and entertained. It is these activities that help the people to keep coming back. Such events are often arranged on the weekends when the footfall increases drastically.
The best part about Manaira Shopping Mall is that it is a complete experience in itself. People who are looking to do shopping would get ample amount of options as there are many brands in the mall where one can shop from. Alternatively, there are many food joints and restaurants at the mall itself, where the people can eat whatever they wish to. Whether the customers want to enjoy having their meal in a food court or want to go to an excellent dining restaurant, it is possible right under one roof at Manaira Shopping Mall.
There is a hidden war going on in the field of American politics and it is one that has been quietly waged for at least the past seven years. The United States government, perhaps now more than ever, has become beholden to special interests, dark money, and lobbyists. When a company can give a million dollars to a senator they can effectively purchase his vote. This is a problem. It is a problem that the team at End Citizens United is focused on remedying. End Citizens United is a political action committee that is focused on campaign finance reform at every level of the United States government: local, state and federal.
In 2010 there was a case that went before the Supreme Court. It was argued by a conservative group that laughably called themselves Citizens United. Their goal, under the guise of freedom of spending, was to loosen campaign donation restrictions in order to allow bigger spenders into the political machine. For all of the world of ridiculousness, Citizens United ended up winning in their argument. Since then politics has not been the same and millions upon millions of dollars are getting thrown around as a result. Fortunately for us, the group at End Citizens United is focused on putting an end to it — even if they can only do it one step at a time.
There have been plenty of political action groups that have gotten together in order to oppose the Citizens United decision but few of them have had the success that End Citizens United and President Tiffany Muller has had. The reason being is that Tiffany Muller and End Citizens United are benefiting from the anger and outrage that the election of Donald Trump has caused. People are angry, they are afraid, and they know that their voice is no longer getting heard. With Donald Trump filling up the White House with special interests, millionaires and billionaires the people seem to know that now is the time to start fighting back.
After just a few months in the 2017 fiscal year the team at End Citizens United has raised an impressive $4 million. The $4 million is outpacing their work in 2016 and it looks to be an omen of better things to come. The goal for 2017 is to have End Citizens United raise nearly $35 million to prepare for the 2018 Congressional Election. In 2018 a ton of Congressional seats are up for grabs and the team at End Citizens United know that this will be their chance to make a real difference at the Federal level. With $35 million raised, if they get there, this could be the best shot that End Citizens United has of making their name a reality.
