Among the issues that Avaaz is taking on is the torture of animals on farms. For one thing, the meats that people eat come from farms. It is bad enough that the animals have to be killed in order to feed people. Things get worse when it comes to the method of killing the animals. An unfortunate occurrence has been discovered at one of the farms. A farmer by the name of Adriaan Straathof has a few farms where animals are being tortured. As of right now, there are ideas being bounced around as to how to put a stop to all of this.
One idea that is being passed around is to enforce stricter laws with the purpose of making it so that Adriaan Straathof is unable to farm. After all, these practices are cruel to animals. Often times, people who engage in these types of practices are not going to change the way they do things. Therefore, it is important to find ways to keep him from doing this to his own animals. The nature of these atrocities committed on the farms are more than disconcerting and revolting. Fortunately, Avaaz has shed some light on this issue for various people in the world to see.
Among the atrocities that have happened in the farm is that tons of pigs have been locked up with nowhere to go. Also, sick piglets have been beaten to death. The farm areas have also been overcrowded. Another disconcerting thing is that a lot of animals with broken bones have been neglected. There are also animals with organs sticking out. Given the nature of his offenses, Germany has banned his farming. With a reputation as gruesome as Adriaan’s, it is only a matter of time before he loses his farms completely and permanently.

Look out UK, here comes Honey!! Austria’s favorite lingerie brand, Honey Birdette, made a recent announcement that had its flock of diehard fans in the United Kingdom jumping for joy. Honey Birdette will be increasing its physical locations to 40 stores by the close of 2018. This news comes on the heels of Honey Birdette opening three locations in the United Kingdom last year. Those three locations have become so popular that they not only draw in visitors from outside the cities they are anchored in, but tourist destinations for those who visit London’s Covent Garden, Leeds’ Victoria Gate and Westfield White – the first three locations.
The first round of openings will include 10 new stores in the United Kingdom. Known locations include Stratford, Leeds, Newcastle, Liverpool and an additional location in Westfield. Honey Birdette currently has 55 locations in Australia. It has been thought that Honey Birdette is also scouting locations in other areas of Europe that would be successful with the company’s high end clientele.
Honey Birdette is one of those brands that is absolutely cherished by Australia. It was founded by Eloise Monaghan in 2006 after she shared cocktails and a conversation with a close friend about the lack of upscale lingerie boutiques in Australia. While the two loved upscale lingerie, the closest high end boutiques were all in Europe and Australia offered nothing that catered to high end tastes.
Each Honey Birdette location has a personality entirely its own. However, all feature the same glossy black doors the company is known for, luxurious décor and an incredibly wide collection of lingerie, accessories and toys for the bedroom. Guests of Honey Birdette are invited to have champagne as they work personally with one of the store’s expert “Honeys,” who create a fun and exciting shopping experience. The store features a variety of lines to suit every taste. Guests can shop anything from soft and subtle silk negligees and slips, to extremely sexy lace ensembles. Honey Birdette even features a complete line of S&M apparel and accessories for those who want to be a bit daring in the bedroom.

These days Cassio Audi keeps himself busy with the affairs of the business world, but that was not always what he did. He was actually the drummer and founding member of Viper in 1985. This rock and roll band ended up putting out two albums, both of which did pretty well.
Both albums were in English even though this was the second language of everyone in the band. That by itself is pretty impressive when you think about it, but the fact that the albums did as well as they did make this story even better.
The first album was decent in the eyes of fans and critics, but it needed more fine tuning to make it better. The group went back to the drawing board and in 1989 came out with their second album “Theatre of Fame” which was a much bigger hit with the fans. They loved it so much and it made the band well-known. Even so, Cassio Audi was ready to move on to the next stage of his life. He left the band in 1989 to go after a career in finance.
In order to even get to that point, he had to go to school and get his MBA. He did this and then went on to work in the financial industry. He is most admired for his work in the real estate business in particular.
It is amazing that someone can take on two vastly different fields of interest and do so well in both of them. That is just the kind of person that Cassio Audi is. He is liked by people all across a spectrum of different fields. It is his mission in life to try to keep the fans happy and keep working hard towards his overall goals in everything that he does.
The heavy metal band Viper may still be touring with one of the many different lineups the band has held over the course of its life that began in 1985 and has continued after a short hiatus from 1996 until 2002. Among the many different members of Viper, Cassio Audi stands out as taking a different route to success than many of those who have also taken up their instruments as one of the members of a legendary Brazilian heavy metal band; after leaving Viper in 1989, Cassio Audi has been a major success in the completely unrelated field of investments and finance.
Cassio Audi is now a well known member of the Brazilian financial industry, which has grown to become the fifth largest economy in the world with the investment specialist taking up an important role bringing investment success to the public of Brazil. Before finding investing success, Cassio Audi was known for the fame he has achieved as the original drummer with Viper as the band took its first steps to finding success on a national and then international stage.
Although their later albums saw Viper become known for combining classical and heavy metal styles, the first studio release, “Soldiers of Sunrise” saw the band achieve a popular sound that was created with a simple style of writing and production that proved effective with both critics and fans alike. Since departing the band as they prepared for the recording of their second studio album, “Theatre of Fate”, Cassio Audi has worked with some of the world’s leading investment institutions; the innovative nature of the work of Cassio Audi sees the financial specialist develop an investment group known for allowing individual investors to make their own decisions about the future of their fund made with advice and tips from Cassio Audi himself.
