Your Week Ahead: You know some very strange people. It is almost as if you are a magnet for oddballs and eccentrics. Somehow they know that you will accept them as they are. Your life would be quieter without these characters, but it would also be a lot less interesting. This week you are getting caught up in a drama that you really don't have to be involved in. Reserve the right to pull back if it all gets too silly. Give it a chance, though. Somewhere in the world of the weird and the wonderful, there is an opportunity that you could benefit from. It could even translate into a very useful way to make your life more comfortable and pleasurable.


10/02/10. 75 anos. Wed.

Em 2009 Fletcher comemorou 75 anos.

Para eternizar as lembranças, selecionamos 75 estórias que mostram a interconectividade de ex-alunos em suas respectivas áreas de atuação ao redor do mundo.

Reproduzo aqui as que eu escrevi.

Overseeing the Financial Services Industry

Paulo Bilyk F’92, from Brazil. Peter Ackerman, F’69, PhD alum, from the USA.

Paulo, CIO and founding partner of Rio Bravo, an independent asset management firm. Peter, Managing Director of Rockport Capital Incorporated, a private investment firm.

Previously, Paulo was a partner and executive director of Banco Pactual, which he joined as a financial analyst in 1992 and was responsible for building the bank's M&A advisory group. Formerly, he worked at Itautec Informática with the US Department of Commerce and Department of Defense.

From 1978 to 1990, Peter was Director of International Capital Markets at Drexel Burnham Lambert where he structured, financed, and invested in hundreds of recapitalizations. Since its inception in 1990, Rockport has made numerous direct investments in fields as diverse as movie libraries, publishing, propane distribution, textiles, custom labeling, wax refining, auto part remanufacturing, variable life insurance, and internet-based food retailing.

Paulo, board member of the Magda Tagliaferro Foundation for piano education in Sao Paulo, board member at the Incheon Center for International Cooperation and Exchange (ICICE), an NGO that promotes the city of Incheon, in South Korea, as a hub for international cooperation and exchange.

Cross-registration. 09.02.10. Tue.

Estudantes da Fletcher podem fazer 1/4 de suas aulas na Harvard, no MIT ou em outras universidades parceiras.

Neste semestre, sou cross-registrant em duas matérias:

Do mundinho pacato na fazendinha saltei para a bela Cambridge na zona urbana. Ao invés dos 4 minutos de distância entre minha casinha branca e a sala de aula, passo 40 minutos a olhar pessoas e vitrines e volto a ser contabilizada como usuária de transporte público.

Passo a desfrutar de um mundo novo, professores fantásticos e aulas sensacionais.

As matérias na Harvard tem gostinho de maçã roubada.
