|Brazilian National Congress|
The Brazilian Parliament is called National Congress. Besides the prerogative of making laws, the National Congress is responsible for the oversight of every accounting, financial and budgetary operation regarding not only the Union’s moneys and properties but also any of the Unions’ branch departments or federal agencies’ moneys and properties. Brazil has a bicameral legislative assembly, composed by the Chamber of Deputies and the Federal Senate. As the country adopts the bicameralism, a bill laid before any of the houses must be revised by the other; therefore, apart from subjects within private competence of each house, the legislative process grants both houses participation in the lawmaking process. The sittings follow a Parliamentary Calendar, which is different from the calendar year. The Congress works in a four year basis, planned to coincide with the deputies’ term. This period is called “Legislatura” in Portuguese.

At Curious we believe in lifelong learning. Learning for its own sake. Learning that happens beyond classrooms, and not only in academic subjects (unless you count beer brewing, pipe soldering, and organic gardening as academic). Learning as a necessity of living. At Curious we also believe great teachers are as valuable to society as great business leaders or academic thinkers. We wonder why there are hundreds of high-tech ways to share silly photos, and military-grade technology can help us find our friends at a bar, but teachers have few quality tools to help them succeed online.
We believe teachers are some of society’s greatest entrepreneurs and should be treated as such. We also believe that videos of cats dancing the Macarena, and super-slo-mo exploding watermelons are really cool, but not the kind of online learning we’re talking about. And that Justin’s new band only reminds us a little bit of this. But that’s another story... Mostly, we believe in being curious.

Whether you are looking to build bridges to the past, or make connections to the future.
|Daily Mail Online|
'The Daily Mail' considers itself to be the voice of Middle England, speaking up for the "small-c" conservative values and against what it sees as a liberal establishment. It generally takes an anti-European, anti-immigration, anti-abortion (despite the "abortion hope" headline -see below), and is correspondingly pro-family, pro-tax cuts and pro-monarchy, as well as advocating stricter punishments for crime. The paper is generally critical of the BBC, which it perceives as being biased to the Left, but it is less unequivocally supportive of deregulation and commercial broadcasting than more downmarket papers such as The Sun, and supports a return to a somewhat nostalgic idea of what the BBC once was in a way that The Sun generally does not.
The Drudge Report is a popular, U.S.-based news website run by Matt Drudge. The site consists primarily of links to stories from the US and international mainstream media about politics, entertainment, and various current events, and to many popular columnists, although occasionally Drudge authors a story of his own. The Report originated around 1994 as a weekly subscriber-based email dispatch. Today, the Drudge Report resembles a simple weblog, though Drudge himself dislikes this classification. Since there is little or no commentary to the page, a more accurate description of the Drudge Report would be "portal" rather than blog. The Drudge Report is most famous for being the first entity to break news of the Monica Lewinsky scandal to the public.
I have been blogging about money, freedom, and economics since February 2006, back then I was using blogger.com, in November 08 I switched to my own self-hosted blog EconomicsJunkie.com and transferred most of my old posts over. In my professional life, I am a partner at a software start-up where I help conceptualize and code live and online auction software solutions. I am also Founder and CEO of a web based project management solution which I run on the side. In my spare time I enjoy reading books by great authors, such as Ludwig von Mises, Murray Rothbard, Ayn Rand, and others. I also take pleasure in playing classic guitar, exploring the city, cooking international food, and skiing in Lake Tahoe. Freedom, Liberty, Peace, Happiness and Prosperity are supposed to be the natural state of mankind! There is nothing I can wish for more than a society where people make way for a system of social cooperation that bestows these gifts upon every single one who lives in it. I strongly resent systems that, from the outset, deny these to some people.

I am a tirelessly curious world wanderer and a travel/documentary photographer. My main passion lies in capturing disappearing ancient cultures and the human condition in unique, challenging situations. My range of subjects is fairly broad, but whether I am photographing nomadic shepherds in India, life in the last traditional villages of Eastern Europe or sulfur miners working in a volcanic crater, my common aim is always the same - to capture the human element. I freelance and shoot documentary photo stories and I write eBooks, mostly in collaboration with “Craft & Vision” as well as “Digital Photo School”. Much of my travel/documentary photography is represented by Getty Images, while my cultural portraits, both colour and black and white are in the private collections of photo lovers and collectors worldwide.
