2020.10.29 20:08 DabsByMike [DIPLOMACY] Brazil Delays F-37 Deliveries to India Citing "National Priority"

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Brazil Delays F-37 Deliveries to India Citing "National Priority"

[May/June 2047]
(SAO PAULO) A spokesman for Embraer has told Agencia Brasil reporters that the Ministry of Foreign Affairs has put a hold on the large corporation's export permit to sell the advanced F-37 fighter jet to India.
Embraer has struggled to put the F-37 Urutau, a high-tech sixth generation fighter which analysts say rivals its Laurentian counterpart, into mass production. Quality control issues and sourcing cutting edge components from Brazilian suppliers struggling to ramp up production of carbon nanotubes and quantum batteries have left Embraer sending its first low rate batches to India as part of their contract, while the Brazilian Air Force and Navy itself awaits.
By presidential decree, the Brazilian Air Force will take delivery of the 10 F-37 jets slotted for Indian use this year and 20 next, postponing the make-up deliveries to 2051. India will start receiving what it was assigned in 2049.
While pressing needs of Brazil's make it logical it has given itself "national priority" on deliveries from the Brazilian arms manufacturer, sources within the Ministry have also noted that India's disrespectful behavior to its senior partner, one which much of India agrees should be a role model for the failing would-be power, contributed.
According to the bureaucrat speaking on condition of anonymity, India pre-maturely demanded Brazil support it in the bizarre naval escalation ongoing between China and India for no apparent reason, belittling what the P6 member of the United Nations Security Council had to offer as an ally.
Brazil maintains a strong logistics network in East Asia and has demonstrated repeatedly its strategic reach.
When asked to comment on this story, the Brazilian Foreign Ministry insisted that it remained "committed to delivering quality defense equipment to India in a timely manner, aimed at improving its capability to defend its territory."

2020.10.28 17:53 facls Update: New Nintendo support in Brazil is replacing drifting Joy Cons for free

Hi, a few months ago I posted about how Nintendo's official support in Brazil was replacing drifting joy cons for free. I did that for my original blue/red pair that came with the Switch.
Well, Nintendo is still doing it but the process has changed and it's MUCH faster. I'll describe it below.
I had an extra green/pink joy con pair where the green one became impossible to use due to drifting. So I looked up online and saw that Nintendo, after having finally officially launched the Switch in Brazil last month, changed their official partner here to a company called Deal 4B.
So I sent them an e-mail ([[email protected]](mailto:[email protected])) explaining that I had a drifting joy con. They replied the next day asking for more information, including the original receipt, joy con serial number and a video showing the issue. I did not send the original receipt, as I do not have it, and explained that the joy con was bought in late 2018, so it was already out of warranty (important to note here is that there's no need to lie or send false information). I shot a video of my Switch in "calibrate control stick" showing the joy con drifting like crazy, uploaded it to Youtube and sent them the link.
In four days I receive by e-mail a "mailing authorization", which means you take the joy con to the post office, show them the authorization number, and they'll pack it and send it to Deal 4 B for you, free of charge. It arrived there in two days, and four days later they send me an e-mail saying that they have confirmed the joy con issue and that they will send me a new one, also free of charge.
The only unfortunate thing here is that in Brazil they do not have the green/pink combo, only the pink/green one. So I had to change my left green one to one of the available colors (blue, red, gray or pink). After choosing the new color, I got my new joy con (which comes with the Anatel label in the back) in three working days.
TL;DR: if you have a drifting joy con and live in Brazil, send an e-mail to Deal 4B and they will replace your faulty joy cons for free!
Edit: added official Nintendo support link.

2020.10.28 17:30 AndorOfAndrade 30 [M4F] Hy-Brasil / Sol System - Cursed Manhorse seeks adventuring partner to reclaim his lost humanity

I donned the Cursed Mask of Bucephalus and became half-man, half-horse. It is told by the ancient scroll I acquired at the fabled markets of the Emerald Bay, also known as E-Bay, that I need to find a female companion to adventure forth and find a way to break the curse lest I'm damned to become an Inverted Centaur barbarian and forever asked if I'm related to one called "BoJack". To avert this terrible fate, therefore, I turn to this adventuring board. Here's some of my status:

What I like:

What I dislike:

I fight HEMA and HMB in a team, before the Plague came upon us I used to do boxing and BJJ as well. Once a wise man told me after losing at a fight to him "To go home and be a family man." I pressed continue and then proceeded to kick his ass, but his words resonated within me. I, indeed, want to be a family horseman eventually.
It was briefly mentioned, but the music I enjoy the most is metal. Mongolian metal is what I've been listening more lately, but folk, death, prog, heavy. I listen to it all. Prog Rock is still my favorite music genre however.
Now, you might be surprised to hear after all this, but I'm actually a romantic. In my own way, that is. My ideal couple idea was always something more akin to Durotan/Draka or like Sieg/Izumi. I will learn what you like and move the whole world for you, if I need to... But I need to know you have my back. If we really click and I know I can count on you, then you'll have a lifelong man-at-arms/Manhorse/barbarian at your side.
Oh, and this is me: https://imgur.com/a/EIaTgvy
And this is me when I'm not afflicted by the Manhorse curse:

2020.10.28 00:56 DabsByMike [DIPLOMACY] Laurentia's Choice of Dictatorship Means it is No Longer a Natural Ally of Brazil's, Focus Will Shift to Common Interests

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Laurentia's Choice of Dictatorship Means it is No Longer a Natural Ally of Brazil's, Focus Will Shift to Common Interests

[Jan/Feb 2047]
(DENVER) Brazil's ambassador to Laurentia has released a statement, expressing sorrow over the result of Laurentia's recent referendum in which the country chose to elect a life-long 'Head of State'.
Describing the system of governance as an elected dictatorship, she made sure to underline Brazil's disapproval of the removal of democracy.
"Brazil does not interfere in the internal politics of nations it partners with. However, democratic nations inherently make for natural allies of our country and we are sad that this is the way Laurentia will move forward."
Pressed on the matter of Brazil's strong tradition of realpolitik, she added:
"Of course we conduct ourselves in our sovereign national interests and that will not change. But our relationship with Laurentia is now fully transactional and they have removed an organic tie between our peoples. We have two distinct groups: free citizens who choose their governments and those which have deemed their country so advanced they will be run by a dictator and hope its of the benevolent variety."

2020.10.27 18:53 urcatsthirdeye Brazilian Woman Takes Dead Elderly Man to Bank for Proof of Life

Brazilian Woman Takes Dead Elderly Man to Bank for Proof of Life
The Civil Police are investigating the action of a woman who took a dead elderly man in a wheelchair to a bank agency to try to withdraw his retirement money.
According to the police report, Josefa de Souza Mathias, 58, claimed to the bank that she had lost the password for the account of her alleged partner, Laércio Della Colleta, a 92-year-old retired and widowed police officer. The bank said than, in order to change the password, it was necessary for him to go to the agency for “proof of life” as a security measure.
Upon arriving, in an attempt to speed up service, the woman said the man was feeling ill. As a result, the Fire Department was called in and found that Mr. Della Colleta was not only dead, but that the death had occurred some time ago: as stated by the police report, the Fire Department and the doctor of the Mobile Emergency Service (SAMU) noticed that he was “in a cadaverous state, with swelling in the feet”.
As reported on Thursday (15) by the director of the Judicial Police Department of São Paulo do Interior (DEINTER 2), José Henrique Ventura, the coroner's report confirmed that the man had been dead for 12 hours when he was taken to the bank.
“She claims to be his partner, said their relationship lasted years but she had no financial power of attorney to manage or control the account. With the report we will initiate an investigation for fraud. We had to investigate the death first, but now we are going to try to understand what was her intention, what she was going to do with him and the money. ”, explains Ventura, “We are studying whether she really was his companion or a mere employee who helped him manage his accounts"
In a note, the São Paulo Public Security Secretariat (SSP-SP) stated that “due diligence continues in order to clarify the facts”.
Banco do Brasil declares that "it has complied with all the protocols established in the service provision contract with the paying source, which includes the requirement of a power of attorney or the presence of the beneficiary at the agency".
Josefa was indicted by the Civil Police for attempting fraud and for the vilifying (disrespect) of a corpse. The elderly man's body was buried the next day.

2020.10.24 20:40 trelleresito (RS Spoilers) Schneider or how to basically make one of your most potential players a joke

I think everyone knows how powerful was Schneider in JY, since he appeared, everyone in the manga was saying he was like a fusion between the Genius Tsubasa and the Powerful Hyuga, and Schneider has made a better shot than Drive Shot, called Fire Shot, Schneider in JY was the best player, only below Genzo and Tsubasa
In JY his match against Japan was brilliant, Schneider couldn't score against Genzo even inside of the Penalty Box, so he use trick to score, like using Margus and Jito to block the view of Genzo or shooting with his Left leg, truly showing how he was the best FW of that saga, also having a good backstory
But after this, the power of Schneider is just like a random player
In WY he was destroyed by Levin, even when he scored two goals, Levin destroyed Schneider and Muller, and i can't believe that, sorry but Schneider was in the Germany league already, he should know about the Levin Shot, or atleast know Levin injured Genzo, is fucking stupid how he didn't say to Muller "watch out his shot, can injure you", and aparently Levin injured Schneider too... How?
After that, we have the fight between Hamburgo and Bayern, but this match was basically a Handicap for Genzo, i mean Genzo was fighting 3 of the best players of WY meanwhile he only has Kaltz on his side, and then Kaltz dissapeard so he didn't have even that on the final minutes of the match, and the only reason Schneider score against Genzo was basically because Genzo was out of his penalty box, simple as that
In all the 3 sagas Schneider is, he didn't improved, he still was the same guy of the JY, using Fire Shots and even when he has talent, other people of this manga has that, but atleast in the match against Hamburgo, he designed a shot against Genzo using Levin and Xiao
But in RS this guy receives basically Bullying
Salinas receives bully and Schneider scores against him 3 times, but after that, Natureza, Rival and Santana appears and Germany becomes the bitch of Brasil, even Schneider can't do shit against them, showing the difference between the best Brasil and the best Germany, but hey, atleast Schneider score 3 times against Salinas, one of the best GK of WY, that means he is OP right?... Right?
The match against Japan was basically "Genzo fucks Germany", Schneider even using his most powerful shot and inside of Penalty Box, can't score against Genzo, tries to use his partners, tricks, everything, but is useless, Genzo is way superior, the only way Germany score against Japan was... Genzo Injured, what a shock
That's my problem with Schneider, at first he seems like once again, the Schneider in JY, showing his power and scoring against Salinas easily, but then against Japan, shows how the guy is still the same, if you compare Schneider JY with Schneider RS, they are the same shit but only more powerful, same playstyle, same shots, same everything, and he can't score against Genzo, wich is funny because Genzo was Schneider bitch, but now Schneider is the bitch of Genzo
If we compare Schneider to Diaz, Tsubasa, Natureza or Santana, he is worst, we have to remember Diaz scored against Genzo, yeah with his hand, but that's the charming of Diaz, he has the best imagination of all Captain Tsubasa and he can improve a way to score even against the SGGK in the same match, Tsubasa is a Gary Stue, Natureza is another Gary Stue, and Santana surpass Schneider even in shot power, and let's not talk about Micael because he doesn't have a chance there
Schneider is just a guy who doesn't have potential anymore, for me he has reached his limit, not being capable of Score Genzo but others characters can, shows how weak he is compared to the elite, maybe he is better than Kluivoort, but he is not a Top 5 character for me
You think Schneider is actually good or no?

2020.10.23 17:42 DabsByMike [DIPLOMACY] Brazil Cautions Japan to Avoid Racially-Motivated Measures, Adding that Tit-for-Tat Sanctions Will Threaten Global Economy

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Brazil Cautions Japan to Avoid Racially-Motivated Measures, Adding that Tit-for-Tat Sanctions Will Threaten Global Economy

[July/August 2046]
(SAO PAULO) Brazil's deputy foreign minister has just issued a subtle condemnation to Japan, after news of rising Sinophobia was codified by a set of anti-China economic measures and glorification of the country's imperial past.
Brazil and Japan are key economic partners in the Asia Pacific maritime trade sphere, both members of the Comprehensive and Progressive Agreement for Trans-Pacific Partnership (CPTPP) free trade agreement. Reports from inside the government say that this has been a strong motivating factor in rejecting an overture from Beijing, asking Brasilia to enact stronger punitive measures against Tokyo's alleged racial policies.
However, Brazil has made its position rhetorically clear at least.
"We do not take these accusations lightly that Japan's sanctions toward China are racially motivated. This is a very sensitive historical issue and we call on Japan to conduct its bilateral relations with China on the basis of what it sees its sovereign interests as only and not hate. We hope that this was not the case and will continue to work with our Japanese and Chinese partners keeping their reactions to this crisis in mind."
Diplomats from Brazil have in recent years kept no secrets in that its main international policy is stability which will support its economic emergence. The South American nation suffered the fallout from international crises such as the ADL-China sanction war and the second American Civil War, despite very strong economic fundamentals and trade and reform policies which set the country up for a much larger economic output. Brazil's GDP has passed $4 trillion in recent years.
"Tit-for-tat sanctions will threaten the global economy. We ask both capitals to keep this in mind and act accordingly in the future."

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Brazilian C-500 Aircraft Touchdown in Tirana, Boosting Vyberian Military Stocks

[May/June 2046]
(TIRANA) Following news of Vyberia's joint offensive against the hated Srpskans, the Brazilian Air Force has responded to a request from its partner to replenish stocks of munitions and other materiel.
Vyberia has bought a number of defense system such as the EE-50 main battle tank and F-30 fighter jet from Brazil over the years, making up a large portion of its modern weaponry while inventories of older equipment remain sufficient.
Two C-500 strategic transport aircraft have flown in from Brazil, carrying weaponry to be used for what could be a protracted conflict cleaning terrorists out of neighboring Bosnia-Herzegovina. Officials have declined to speak on specifics; however, analysts believe that anything from MAR-1 Anti-Radiation and MAT-90 Air-to-Ground Missiles could have been delivered to ensure uninterrupted supplies, not to mention tank shells and other more common ammunition.
The move has been the first sign of a more-than-commercial relationship between Brazil and Vyberia, with the former responding with its military to deliver equipment rather than wait on civilian shipping with no urgency.

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Ambassador to India Criticizes Asian Democratic League as Ineffective and Defunct

[March/April 2046]
(NEW DELHI) Brazil's Ambassador to New Delhi Emanuel Monteiro has spoken out against the Asian Democratic League amidst a crisis in Australia, calling the organization "ineffective and defunct".
"We see that India has not been able to come of age and lead this organization," said Monteiro, harshly critical of his host nation.
"The continued existence of the ADL unnecessarily polarizes Asia into a black and white series of alignments. It leaves no room to have a more complicated foreign or trade policy besides pro-China or anti-China. This has hurt the region severely and why you see countries leaving the ADL."
Monteiro added that it continued to see India as an important partner but that a more informal system of alliances and cooperation would be beneficial as oppose to the rigid but flawed structure of the ADL.

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Brazil to Oppose Foreign Interference in Australia Conflict, Calls All Sides to Join Political Process

[Jan/Feb 2046]
(BRASILIA) The Brazilian Ministry of Defense has released satellite imagery of a large People's Liberation Army Navy fleet sent to Australia, amidst that countries escalating civil war between the United Nations recognized Gravy government and Australian Liberation Front, claiming to be pro-democratic and seeking backing from various international powers.
The current Australian administration gained power after ousting pro-China elements controlling the seat, while rebels against its rule also follow a similar anti-China strain. Brazil has found itself in a tough predicament with major commercial ties to Australia and defense relations strong with the Australian Defence Force, though it is following international law and has yet to formally declare a preference.
Foreign Minister Ana Soares, however, has quickly released a statement opposing China's deployment.
"International intervention in Australia will greatly increasing the toll on human life and escalate the conflict. We call on all parties to refrain from interfering in the process and to jointly encourage a political process which will include all warring parties."
"Australia remains a key economic and political partner of Brazil's and we will continue to monitor the situation closely."

2020.10.16 21:42 DabsByMike [EVENT] Constitutional Amendment Opens Up Avenue for Subnational Entities Called "National Republics" in Brazil

AGENCIA BRASIL -- Constitutional Amendment Opens Up Avenue for Subnational Entities Called "National Republics" in Brazil

[July/August 2045]
(BRASILIA) A historical moment has unfolded in front of the press in the Brazilian capital as the National Congress has passed a constitutional amendment opening up the way for the creation of a new, autonomous subnational entity in the country.
Brazil has long-resisted the idea of creating special status entities within the country, even fighting the MPLA insurgency in Angola which has demanded that Angola move away from being one of many states in the Federative Republic but instead be granted more autonomy.
However, talks with Venezuela have progressed greatly, leading to the need for a new legal framework. The Spanish-speaking nation which Brazil has a colorful history with since the deposition of Nicolas Maduro in the early 2020s has become very close to Brazil in recent years, culminating in an agreement which will see the Brazilian Armed Forces become protector of the Venezuelan nation as it joined a strongly integrated Mercosur continental bloc. Venezuela's ruling political establishment has been dominated by pro-Mercosur, pro-Brazil entities since intense military pressure on Caracas forced nationalists seeking the expansion of Venezuelan influence to move aside in favor of technocrats determined to turn the country into a high-tech heavy weight.
Venezuela and Brazil have also partnered up as the main contributors to the South American Multi-National Space Agency (SALSA), seeking to take the continent and its interests into outer space. A symbiotic relationship between nations, as Brazil focuses on terrestrial influence and Venezuela looks to the skies, resources and initiative have been combined into one.
Following a request from Venezuela, Brazilian lawmakers have drawn up the legal basis for partial union between the two states in a manner some have likened to the concept of Soviet Socialist Republics in the time of the USSR. However, distanced from the dictatorial, nominal autonomy which was meaningless in practice, there are some parallels.
The new modified Brazilian constitution provides for the status of National Republics as follows:
  • National Republics are to remain sovereign entities, whose sovereign rights are guaranteed by the Federative Republic of Brazil in which it participates.
  • The Brazilian Armed Forces are the sole military force and supreme guarantor of the independence, physical safety, and sovereignty of the National Republics.
  • Each National Republic is allowed to continue participation in the United Nations as well as continue to operate with a Foreign Ministry or equivalent
  • National Republics are reserved the right of secession, subject to a full year's notice
  • National Republics and the Federal Government of Brazil will participate in a National Council acting on unanimity with each nation allocated five seats, providing for representation of the republics.
  • National Republics will be afforded all rights of States within the Federal System and operate under the same administrative guidelines in areas otherwise not specified

2020.10.12 05:43 Erhard_Eckmann [Diplomacy] All the King's Horses

All the King's Horses

February 5 - 8, White House
[Private]
On February 5th, President Juan Guaido and his cabinet landed at Andrews Air Force Base in DC and were greeted by President Biden and his cabinet privately before being taken by the Secret Service to the White House. On the same day, President Jair Bolsonaro from Brasil landed, where President Biden and his cabinet also greeted Bolsonaro and his team at Ronald Reagan Airport before being escorted to the White House. The team was gathered in the Situation Room where greetings were exchanged between Guaido's team, Biden's team, and Bolsonaro's team and then the discussions began.
President Biden stated that the two men had been invited to the White House to discuss the future of Venezuela. President Biden has stated that all that could be done diplomatically and economically to Venezuela has already been done and tried up to this point. Nonetheless, Nicolas Maduro still remains in power. Guaido has tried multiple times to stage an uprising against Maduro and failed, the people of Venezuela are too afraid. Notably, Operation Gideon was a total bust- which was totally the doing of the United States, but no one needs to know that. Alone, Guaido tried to launch an uprising by persuading citizens and military units to march to the capital and oust Maduro. The citizens alone have been protesting, but don't have the means to overthrow Maduro, and the military, like most dictatorships, is in Maduro's pocket. Maduro has survived attempts on his life likely in the same range that Bashar Al-Assad has, and without outside action, Venezuela will never see change.
President Biden stated that the United States is interested in Venezuela for a few reasons. Firstly, the United States, along with the rest of the world, recognizes Guaido as the democratically elected leader of the country- and it is currently being illegally occupied by Maduro. Secondly, if Venezuela would stabilize and focus on conducting petroleum commerce, the Americas and select European partners would be able to profit and shy away from the vulnerable Middle East. Additionally, it is suspected that the US is best equipped to refine the very crude Venezuelan petroleum. Thirdly, it would mean the installation of a Pro-US ally, and most importantly- it would mean the illegal immigration flow to the US could be cut significantly if Venezuela was to stabilize under a popular democratic government.
The President has informed Guaido and his team that the United States is going to form a coalition of allied and like-minded states to depose Nicolas Maduro, under a coalition part of what is called Operation Libertad. The Director of National Intelligence, Stephanie Murphy, CIA Director Scott Berrier, Secretary of Defense Tulsi Gabbard, and Secretary of State Judy Chu have been working around the clock with their counterparts to prepare for the creation of said coalition and Operation Libertad to depose Maduro. President Biden has asked President Bolsonaro to take up the position as joint-leader of the coalition, being a Major Non-NATO Ally and strong military partner in South America, and directly on the border of Venezuela. President Biden has also asked Guaido and his team for their blessing to depose Nicolas Maduro and his regime to install a popular democracy in Venezuela. Should Guaido accept, a secure video conference will be established between the team in the situation room and President Marquez in Colombia, and President Piñera in Chile.
In this call, the leaders, all of which who have announced support and recognition of Juan Guaido over Maduro, will be asked if they will participate in a Joint US-Brasil led coalition to oust Nicolas Maduro and install a popular democracy as part of the named Operation Libertad. If Chile and Colombia agree, they will be designated as Major Non NATO-Allies. All of these nations have done some level of humanitarian work already for Guaido's government, and Colombia is on the fence for a conflict at the border almost every day as it is. Secretary Gabbard has proposed that the Coalition be led by the US and Brazil, where Brazil will lead the ground invasion force which will be supported by Colombia, and Chile. The United States will conduct naval operations to secure the waterways, and transport their troops, supplies, and equipment to the coalition as needed. Simultaneously, the United States will base the operation HQ out of San Juan, Puerto Rico which military officers of all sides will attend to share intelligence across all sides, and coordinate support and the mission. The United States will also use the USAF to conduct airstrikes and aerial coverage of the entire conflict to communicate to all party members which will facilitate the communication and the airstrikes which will assist the ground troops and hit strategic infrastructure and military targets. And, once the operation has begun and land has been liberated, the US will be able to assist with ground troops in the event the invasion is much slower than predicted.
Once Maduro has been ousted and popular democracy has been instated, the United States will take lead on rebuilding Venezuela and their armed forces, along with the humanitarian relief. In the meantime, Guaido's team will be escorted to the headquarters in San Juan, if the coalition will go forward, and all sides will prepare for the attack. Brasil will be allowed to decide where and how, and the United States will coordinate around this. When significant amounts of Venezuelan territory have been liberated and are deemed safe, the US will let Juan Guaido and his team return to Venezuela under the protection of the Coalition forces which will help the popular movement against Maduro.

2020.09.22 16:23 cien_anos_de_soledad Living temporarily in Brasil

bom dia a todos,
I know this may seem like a strange question given everything happening right now in the world, but my partner and I are looking to live temporarily in Brasil as I can't enter his country (Argentina), and he can't enter mine (Canada) thanks to COVID and immigration restrictions.
Since Brasil is one of the few countries letting people in still, and when the borders (hopefully/eventually) reopen in Argentina, it will be cheaper to fly there from Brasil, we figured it would make sense to stay there while we wait.
What we're wondering is what city/cities/neighborhoods you would recommend to foreigners. While I wish this still didn't matter, we are a same sex couple, so that's probably something to consider too.
Thank you everyone for you help!

2020.09.22 15:59 luigislowhand Consejos para buscar trabajo afuera (o tambien, aca)

Buenas Gente!
Bueno, viendo que todos están con ganas de irse, y para que no terminen siendo un meme, y de verdad puedan irse (o intenten), se me ocurrió buscar información sobre portales de empleo de distinto lugares, incluido Argentina, para los que busquen cambiar y no tengan la posibilidad de hacerlo afuera.
Estuve investigando y hablando con conocidos, y logre hacer una recopilación de distintos sitios donde pueden empezar a aplicar.
Algunas recomendaciones previas:
- LinkedIn: Ya lo conocen, mi recomendación siempre es tener un perfil lo más completo posible; completar la info sobre los proyectos/laburos que hicieron; para los developers, no olviden linkear su github, o portfolio. Por otro lado, está bueno seguir empresas para las que les interese trabajar; también conectarse con recruiters de estas empresas (o de cualquier empresa del rubro, para el caso), y no duden en mandarles invite, un mensajito de presentación o adjuntarles su CV. (1) Tampoco olviden de tener su perfil en otro(s) idioma(s). Linkedin te da la opción de tenerlo en distintos idiomas, sin tener que tener otro perfil. Esto sirve para cuando alguien que tiene su propio linkedin configurado en inglés y hace una búsqueda, le aparezca tu perfil.
- Sites de empresas: Casi todas las empresas, grandes o chicas, tienen su sección de "trabaja con nosotros" o Careers, donde postean directamente sus vacantes, o tienen un mail de contacto para que envíen sus datos.
Bolsa de trabajo de universidades: Tooodas hasta la mas pedorra tiene bolsa de trabajo para que puedan aplicar.
- Google: Google también funciona como un agregador / integrador de job posts. O sea, pueden buscar directamente en google y los lleva a las ofertas (buscando trabajo, los lleva a la sección de búsquedas)
- Grandes agencias: Manpower, Addecco, Randstat y sus subsidiarias de tecnología (ExperisIT, por ej) funcionan en todo el mundo, y siempre tienen puestos para todos los gustos. Obvio, trabajas para ellos, no para el cliente.
- VanHack: Muchos laburos en CA y Europa, con relocation. Postean directamente las empresas que estan dispuestas a llevarse a alguien.
- Remote OK: Portal con avisos para nómadas digitales. (3)
- Acuerdense de buscar por palabras tipo Remoto/e, Relo/Relocation, si es que buscan trabajo desde acá.

Portales:
Computrabajo.com: El portal funciona en todo latinoamerica. En general tiene muchas ofertas diarias.
Bumeran.com: Es el portal hermano de ZonaJobs y UniversoBit. Originalmente estaban destinados a puestos diferentes, pero en definitiva, terminaron cayendo en las empresas poniendo los mismos posteos en los dos portales. En algunos países puede cambiar de nombre (Laborum, en Chile, por ej.)
BuscoJobs.com: Similar a computrabajo.
Indeed.com: Funciona en casi todo el mundo. Se usa mucho en Canadá y EEUU, también en Europa.
Opcion Empleo / Career Jet: Otra web que funciona mucho en todo el mundo.
Glassdoor: No sirve solo para ver cuánto gana tu compañero, en varios países se lo usa como una buena opción para publicar búsquedas
SimplyHired: Otro portal que se usa mucho en Canadá, pero tiene versiones de varios países.

Bolsa Nacional de Empleos
Trabajando.cl
Chiletrabajos.cl
Empleos EMol: El portal de trabajo del diario El Mercurio.
Empleospublicos.cl: Web que publica ofertas laborales del Estado de muchísimas áreas y de todo Chile, no sólo Santiago.
GetOnBoard: Empleos IT en Chile (5)

(también existen Au Pair Australia y Find a Babysitter, por si a alguien le interesa, pero seguro son los menos, por lo menos aca en argentina)

Para cerrar, tienen la web y redes sociales de Yo me animo y vos, con mucha mas info para salir de este agujero del demonio hoyito del diablo.
También, no se olviden de visitar las webs de las embajadas y consulados para averiguar sobre programas de working holiday y visados especiales.

What's up,
I'm a 22 M from the USA east coaster but soon moving to the west. Quarantine has been rough especially as a single guy. No ability to date and as a recent college graduate going to a new area masks and quarantine has not made it easy to look for a partner hahah.
But on the good side, I am a recent college graduate working in business. I love to travel and learn languages. I'm currently learning Portuguese (so if you are from Brasil or Portugal definitely hmu)/ but I am open to meeting people from anywhere. Outside of work and travel I'm big into sports. I'm a good basketball player myself and love to watch the NBA but love other sports too. I love anime. I watch a lot but I think there's a lot more to me then just sports and anime.
I'm a tall fit black guy if that matters. People say I'm funny but who knows. Looking for a tall and sporty girl. If ya liked anything I said feel free to send me a message!

2020.09.10 13:57 gustavorochacom Head de Compliance e DPO: Pode ser um só?

Divido o artigo do advogado Luis Fernando Prado Chaves do escritório Daniel Law sobre este tema tão relevante: Pode o DPO ser o mesmo de compliance?
O comparativo traçado pelo autor é completo e bem instigante e teço alguns comentários após:
Bélgica: Empresa é multada por ter nomeado head de compliance, auditoria e riscos como DPO.
Por: Luis Fernando Prado Chaves*
Na última semana, mais precisamente no dia 28/04/2020, em decisão que chocou parte dos especialistas europeus em proteção de dados, a Autoridade Belga (íntegra da decisão em holandês) multou uma operadora de telefonia em 50 mil euros em razão de inadequada nomeação de DPO (em português, encarregado de proteção de dados).
Após um incidente de segurança, a Autoridade daquele país realizou investigação sobre as práticas da empresa em matéria de proteção de dados e concluiu pela impossibilidade de cumulação das funções de DPO e head de compliance, pois as rotinas de compliance demandam tratamento constante e relevante de dados pessoais, o que inviabilizaria a supervisão independente de tais atividades por parte do DPO por se tratar da mesma pessoa. Ainda, tal cumulação de cargos, segundo a Autoridade Belga, revela um “significante grau de negligência” por parte da empresa investigada, o que culminou na aplicação da multa de 50 mil euros, que, à primeira vista, pode não parecer grande coisa, mas é a maior sanção administrativa imposta até agora pela Autoridade Belga, segundo os colegas europeus do escritório Fieldfisher.
O espanto dos profissionais de privacidade europeus se justifica em razão de a decisão ser considerada excessivamente rigorosa, já que: (i) o GDPR permite a cumulação do cargo de DPO com outras funções, desde que não haja conflito de interesses; (ii) as guidelines do WP29 (atual European Data Protection Board – EDPB) sobre DPO não chegam a esse nível de rigor, mencionando (tudo bem que a título de exemplo) posições de conflito com o DPO que passam longe daquilo que faz a pessoa em posição de head de compliance; e (iii) muitas empresas na Europa – tal como vem acontecendo no Brasil – nomearam seus heads de compliance como DPO, sendo que, apesar dos riscos jurídicos envolvidos, isso nunca tinha sido um problema efetivo à luz de proteção de dados até então.
Inclusive, segundo o último relatório de governança disponibilizado pela IAPP em conjunto com a EY, em 18% dos casos o DPO se reporta ao(à) head de compliance da organização. Não preciso nem mencionar que o precedente belga deixou o pessoal em terras de GDPR de cabelo em pé, colocando em xeque programas de governança em proteção de dados e fazendo uma dúvida inquietante atravessar o Atlântico:

Mas, afinal, aqui no Brasil DPO vai poder acumular o cargo de head de compliance?

Bem, se lá no primeiro mundo, onde o GDPR é realidade, há muitos colegas discordando e encarando com perplexidade a decisão da Autoridade Belga, aqui no Brasil precisamos lembrar que a LGPD é omissa em relação ao acúmulo de funções, não dispondo sequer (ao menos não de maneira expressa) sobre a necessidade de se evitar conflito de interesses. Portanto, podemos concluir que é totalmente viável que o DPO acumule função, mas alguns alertas devem ser feitos – e o precedente belga deveria fazer com que abríssemos ainda mais os olhos.
Considerando a influência do direito europeu de proteção de dados sobre o brasileiro, bem como as tendências interpretativas que são esperadas da doutrina, jurisprudência e autoridade nacional, devemos considerar a ação de evitar conflito de interesses nas atribuições do DPO, senão como obrigação implícita decorrente do artigo 41, §2o, III (que estabelece como função do DPO o dever de orientar os funcionários e os contratados da entidade a respeito das práticas a serem tomadas em relação à proteção de dados pessoais), ao menos como uma prática fortemente recomendável, para dar efetividade ao artigo 50 da LGPD (que aborda os elementos de um programa de governança adequado).
Abaixo, apresento breves dicas de como materializar tal prática:
✓ Dotar o DPO de independência para exercer suas funções;
✓ Prover os recursos necessários, conforme o tamanho da organização, para que as funções do DPO sejam realizadas a contento;
✓ Idealmente, não imergir o DPO em áreas/estruturas que ele deverá analisar criticamente, tais como:
📷 Compliance: o DPO deve analisar as operações de background-check que envolvem dados pessoais e são conduzidas por essa área;
📷 TI: o setor de TI é responsável, por exemplo, pela aquisição de tecnologia da empresa, o que, no melhor cenário, deveria contar com uma análise isenta por parte do DPO;
📷 Segurança da Informação: também no contexto ideal, o DPO deveria servir como uma segunda opinião em relação a assuntos que envolvam segurança da informação aplicada a dados pessoais;
📷 Outras áreas de conflito evidente: são exemplos de áreas que podem trazer notório conflito de interesses em relação às atividades de DPO: RH, marketing, inovação, digital, big data, comercial/vendas etc.
Além disso, é importante que o DPO tenha as seguintes garantias que prestigiam a independência a ser perseguida:
➢ Ter acesso às lideranças das áreas-chave da empresa;
➢ Ter recursos (humanos e materiais) para o desempenho de suas funções;
➢ Reportar-se ao mais alto nível gerencial da organização; e
➢ Ter autonomia para exercício de suas atividades sem que sua atuação sofra pressões por resultados financeiros ou metas comerciais.
É claro que aqui estamos falando do mundo ideal. Em algumas organizações, principalmente em razão do porte e orçamento, não será possível criar uma área autônoma para o DPO e seu time, que se reporte ao mais alto nível gerencial como mandam as melhores práticas. Na maioria desses casos, a solução será mesmo a de cumular funções, ocasião em que será de extrema importância a implementação de mecanismos por parte da companhia para lidar com os conflitos de interesses que surgirão no dia-a-dia.
Enfim, como (quase) tudo na jornada de governança em proteção de dados, também para a estruturação de um cargo efetivo de DPO não há fórmula única. No entanto, o precedente belga deixa claro algo que é aplicável aqui ou lá: se o seu DPO for apenas para inglês ver, a caneta da autoridade poderá agir. Todo cuidado é pouco nos programas de adequação à LGPD, especialmente no desenho da estrutura de governança, para que as medidas adotadas pelas organizações não sejam interpretadas como “significante grau de negligência“.

Interessante não?
Numa primeira análise, concordo com a Bélgica, devemos ter figuras diferentes entre head de compliance e DPO. Seus trabalhos são diversos e podem ser influenciados um pelo outro, além de poder gerar decisões antagônicas e quiçá contraditórias…
Mais um assunto para LGPD em 2021!

2020.09.08 02:59 500scnds [Table] My name is Paolo Cattaneo. 5 years ago I quit my job, sold everything I had and embarked in a trip around the world on a motorcycle. Rode for almost 185000 km. Still going! Here to answer question about self sustained living on the road and long distance solo travelling. AmA! (pt 2)

Note: I'm not sure whether a trigger warning for mentioning depression is appropriate here, but better to be safe than to be sorry.
Questions Answers
Did you have any sort of health insurance during this time? (I'm thinking mainly in the United States where an unexpected visit can cost thousands) yes. There are specific TRAVEL INSURANCE which cover medical and unforeseen expenses like the one you mentioned. I use Worldnomads, which costs me around $800 a year and cover the whole world.
the below is a reply to the above
The hell?! Can you get that even if you stay in only one country? I live in the U.S. and it costs $500 a month for insurance. I believe it depends from your country of residence. Ouch
This is such an incredible story! This is one of the coolest things I’ve ever heard or read. I just recently finished reading “The Motorcyle Diaries”. I gave you a follow on ig too. What’s the next country you plan on traveling through? Thanks a lot!! :) I am planning to ride back to Australia via Asia. Not quite sure yet about the itinerary...since covid stopped me for now. Thanks again for the nice words!
Sorry to ask yet another money question, but I think this is the biggest block to doing something like this for most people! 1. When you went to LA initially (when you were 24), you say you pretty much only had enough money for the plane ticket. How did you sustain yourself when you arrived and how long did it take for you to 'get on your feet'? 2. How do/did you deal with 'scarcity' mentality of perhaps one day not being able to find a job (even an odd job, or a temporary position) and running out of money, and facing a more unstable housing/financial situation? Thanks! Thanks for the question mate. Again, absolutely plausible. When I flew to LA, I had saved some money for the plane ticket and arranged a couch for the first 2 weeks with a friend of a cousin of a distant uncle (the only real connection I had a the time). Meanwhile I was trying to sell my motorcycle at home in Italy. I sold it 2 days after I left and my family helped me completing the sale and sent me the money overseas. I think I sold the bike for 1200 euros. That lasted me quite a while. I did back and forth from Italy to USA few times and I was getting some occasional jobs in Milan to pay for my trips. I made just enough to pay for flights and accommodation. But I remember that a lot of food was offered to me. I was sleeping on people's couches and at times I was eating one Starbucks Frappuccino a day. I know...not the best diet...but I think It was around $2.5 and full of sugar and coffee so It kept me going. Generally I survived thanks to people I met along the way and their generosity. I had a wonderful time in USA. Most people are really willing to help. Some other instead want to take advantage of you. Learned both lessons the hard way, I guess.
Eventually, after thousands of closed doors, I managed to find an IT company that was willing to sponsor me for my visa stuff. It was a complicated time for me, mostly because I wasn't prepared mentally for such cultural gap and such challenges. When you are alone, without your family and friends around, and you have to take care of yourself and your life, you start to know who you really are.
Somehow It is an experience that I would recommend to everybody. Those are some of the most intense yet rewarding experiences I had in my life.
the below is a reply to the above
Thanks for answering! I was curious to know the reality of upping and moving somewhere without a job waiting for you or much money in your pocket and a frappuccino for your daily meal is certainly a peak behind the curtain!! But I agree with you that most people are kind and willing to help. I believe in that in general. I admire your resilience. I've certainly dealt with a lot of closed doors and isolation from family and friends too, but often get scared to "do what I really want" because I'm so afraid of being stuck somewhere without money. Wishing you continued success and safe travels! I wish you good luck too! I am sure you can endure much you can think. Go for it!
Can I join you ?! Lmao This is my Dream .. good for you man . Good for fuckin youuuu !!! Share the love & grow strong . Thanks for the support mate!! Go for it! You can do it!
How come you’re happy and I’m depressed as fuck? I don't want to open a can of worms, but I was super depressed too. Depression is a state of mind in which you tell yourself that "something is wrong". Whether the wrong comes from inside or outside of you, your mind is telling you that there's something that needs to be fixed. It's a good indicator that you are on the path of healing yourself if you want.
Sincerely, if one is not depressed a bit, these days, it would be completely unaware of your surroundings and even your own existence.
Before leaving for Australia, I spent 2 and a half years in deep sadness (you can call it depression if you will), caused by several factors. I had a meaningless job (for me), I HAD TO live with my parents and I was even going through break up with my ex, which ripped my heart apart. I basically didn't get out of my room for 2 years, while I was helping my grandma on her deathbed and my dad was sick with Alzheimer. Fun, uh?
I am not saying that it's good to be depressed, but you can choose to use it as a propeller to wish for something better. You can change your reality. It's entirely up to you, how you see the world and the opportunities you have in life to grow.
the below is a reply to the above
I understand what you are trying to say but I have to disagree. It's a bit like telling a person with a broken back that if they wished hard enough to walk, they will walk just fine. Depression doesn't work like that. You may have made it out of it but to somebody that is currently in a deeply depressive state, the only thing they will hear is: "You aren't trying hard enough, you could do it but you just aren't even trying. You are a useless piece of shit because you are too lazy to change. It's entirely up to you! You useless fuck." I agree with you. But I believe that there is somehow a bottom line...and when reached somebody will try to react to it and fight back. It's a self preservation mechanism.
the below is a reply to the above
Nah, believe me, there is no bottom. If there were, there wouldn't be people killing themselves. I don't have any self-preservation left, for example. I'm so dead inside that I don't even bother to kill myself because I even lack that energy. It's just chugging along, time flies, and I'm not really there. Seems like you are inside "the spiral" mate. You ll get out of it, trust me. Sounds silly but enjoying a bit of sun, seemed to have helped me at that time when I felt like that. In any case, just give it time and don't give up. Try to get outside and stay in nature if you can. It doesn't change much but It helps. Stay strong, mate. Give it time.
the below is a reply to the above
I live in one of the most beautiful areas of the world (county Galway in Ireland), right at the sea. I can see it from my window and the beach is 5 minutes away. It doesn't help. I don't even have the energy to go outside, even on a nice day. You've been lucky to get out, all I ask is you not blaming people that can't. It's not a thing of willpower or sunshine. It's a thing of lacking any kind of willpower. I've been like this for over 20 years, sometimes better, sometimes worse. That's not a spiral anymore. It's a chute. I'm sorry mate. I hope you ll get better anyway.
I was just looking at your Instagram photos... Wow! You take gorgeous photos and have such an interesting story to share. Have you ever thought about writing a book? It seems to me that travel and adventure magazines would also pay you to write stories for them. Just something to think about. Good luck! Thank you, but I think that I'm not doing anything that hasn't been done before. I do like to share and help people see the world for the beautiful place it is...but that's about it. Thanks for the compliment, though!
Do you avoid public attractions where you have to pay a fee like castles, palaces or other famous tourist attractions. If you avoid them, are you curious about them and want to visit them but you don’t have enough money or don’t you care about tourist attractions? Good question! I recently posted the story on my instagram about Machu Picchu in Peru, which I refused to visit because of the exorbitant entry fee. $70 USD to enter the site is an unreasonable amount...regardless the fact that it is undoubtedly a beautiful site to visit. I usually avoid big tourist traps, but sometimes you gotta pay. The most I've paid was $35 to enter Iguazu Falls and $35 to enter Perito moreno Glacier. Both worth it sincerely, even if overpriced. I left the others aside and went for the cheap ones instead.
I am from Greece.Where in Greece have you been?And how did you make money during these years to "pay the bills"? Oh mate!! what a beautiful country! I had a great time there! I spent most of my quarantine and lockdown in Crete, but I entered Greece from Albania, then rode down to the Peloponnese and rode to Athens, Evia and even Santorini!! Check my insta for all the amazing places I've seen! I am still stoked for the great hospitality I received from the greeks and the amazing places I've seen!! For the economical part of your question, please see previous answers, where I explained in details the money factor.
How do you plan what route you will take? Do you navigate primarily with map+compass? GPS on your phone? Both? If M+C, what sort of compass do you use, and where do you obtain your maps for each country or locality? Hello! I mostly use Google maps for my navigation and planning. Most of the info i get from the places I want to visit, are obtainable from the app itself. It's a brief guide but works for me. If in remote areas I use Maps.me, which works offline and has trails too.

Have you tried getting a sponsorship from google for using their maps I actually thought about it...but never really went through with it. Maybe they let me mount a gigantic 360 camera on top of my helmet and then I'll be stuck with it. Haha
How do you deal with dirty toilets in some areas where you cannot find any usable ones if that has ever happened? Also what do you do when there are none around, like on a desert road or something? This and my trust issues with getting help from strangers is what keeps me from even thinking about doing something like what you're doing. Very pertinent question as I find myself sometimes with no toilets around. There's a basic system, which I wasn't really accustomed to...that is "squatting"...that help with the mentioned activity. When in the wild, you need to have the curtesy at least of (some privacy, obviously) digging a hole in the ground with a stick or something...and then covering it up when you are done with your business. Toilet paper and wet wipes have to be bagged and disposed in the first available garbage bag. This concerned N2, clearly. For N1, being a guy, it is quite practical. But there are a lot of girls travellers which simply "hide behind something". It is quite unorthodox but I guess you get used to it eventually. It's just a matter of doing it the first few times. Then It becomes ok.
What was the moment you thought, ''It was all worth it''? It was when I arrived back in Sydney, after riding all around Australia... After the first few days of riding I remember I had still some doubts on my mind about resigning and selling everything, etc. When I returned in my own beloved town, it was like i saw myself in the mirror. I saw myself as the person I was before...and the one I had become. And I didn't like the person I was before...so I understood that my life had changed forever. I realized that giving everything up was worth the realization of who I was at that time. I also realized that I couldn't stop there...
Wah! Thanks for the AmA! I've always wanted to have a chat with people who like to travel the world. Your answers are very straightforward, I love that! Did you ever get into trouble with local people like pickpockets and tourist scam? Did you ever have any emergency medical troubles? Do you try to enjoy local street food? (If so, did you ever had any stomache because your body isn't used to that type of food?). Err I think I've made too many questions at once. Have fun & enjoy your life adventure, whatever you decide to do in your future! No problems! It's a pleasure!! So, I never really had problems with pickpocketers. But I also always look around while walking in big cities. As I mentioned before, the only bad occurrence I had was in Canada, where somebody stole my rusty tools bag from my bike, while parked in Vancouver. I never had medical issue...hurray!!! I do LOVE to try all food. The "weirdest" the better! I think I have a fetish for local street food. So yeah, I eventually had a bit of stomachache but it was mostly my fault. I had a raw shrimp from a market in Mexico. Not wise! haha I built my immune system I think, just drinking tap water from everywhere. If locals don't die...I shouldn't either, right!? ;)
Is your ass now made of steel? I had to draw a line in the middle of my bum to see where my cheeks were... ;)
Have you been to Bulgaria yet? How much did you see if you have? No, I haven't. But It's definitely on my list.
the below is a reply to the above
Are you taking reccomendations for places to visit in countries? Because i have a few reccomendations for bulgaria. Of course!! 😊 maybe send those to me as DM so those don't get lost in the post. Cheers!! 🙏
Have you ever worried about not being able to get a job later on once you stop travelling, due to the big gap between jobs in your CV? I am not an HR guy...but If I was... I would hire a guy that travelled the world on a motorcycle to have on my team, instead of somebody with straight AA, tons of certificates and no life experience. but maybe I'm wrong. ;)
100k+ on a KTM and no major problems? INCONCEIVABLE! Do you have an ADV th'd? ahha I know right!??! It's actually almost 200000 km mate and still going strong with no mechanical issues!! Crazy!! I am in awe too! I am on ADVRIDER, yes. But don't have a thread about this.
When did you find out about COVID and how has it affected your travels? Thanks and warmest regards! Oh man, that was such a bummer! I left italy on the 15th of Feb, 10 days before the first case in Lombardy. One week later it was already mayhem. As soon as the Italian disaster exploded, people started to look at me as carrier of virus...like they were doing with asians in general, no matter if they were from indonesia or mongolia or china. I entered Albania and there were rumors of borders starting to close. So I headed to Greece, since it is still EU and I could get sent back to Italy easily. After spending 4 months in Greece, I took the first available ferry back to Italy, where I am waiting for the pandemic to settle a bit. Then I'll leave again.
Hey Paolo, I recently rode a motorcycle across Vietnam and it got me inspired to ride from Alaska to Argentina, hopefully leaving next summer, virus permitting. I’ll most likely be riding my Honda CRF250L, not quite a KTM haha. Do you have any advice for a young man looking for more adventure? Yes. Great bike first of all!! You ll love it! South america is kind of paradise for motorcycling so...yeah. I would recommend you to pick the right seasons to ride alaska and patagonia. Crucial for the outcome of your expedition.
the below is a reply to the above
I appreciate it! I’ll definitely keep the seasons in mind for Patagonia and have already made sure to head to Alaska in the summer. I mean, I went to Alaska in september and weather was amazing...and rode through patagonia in autumn which was chilly but absolutely fantastic! Less people and beautiful colours!
the below is a reply to the above
Less people would definitely be a plus! What are the average speeds in South America or are certain country’s faster than others? I’m worried my CRF might not be fast enough in places. Your bike is absolutely fine. Do not worry about that
Ciao! I am a italian too, precisely sicilian. Next summer I will probably travel all sicily, how much money do you think i need to bring, and how can I save as much as possible? I want to stay a bunch of days while traveling through cities. Like 3 days at Agrigento, for example. Any suggestions are welcomed! Sto scrivendo in inglese pure per far vedere ad altri i tuoi suggerimenti Ciao! well, I cannot tell you how much you'll need to travel...even just Sicily. It depends where you are willing to sleep, what are you willing to sacrifice in terms of food and what time of the year you are planning to travel. Just know that food and accommodation are the most expensive elements of your trip.
Did you get any inspiration from Emilio Scotto’s ride around the world? Any plans (or desire) to try and break his record? I do not know him. I also never read the Motorcycle diaries or Zen and the art of motorcycle. Also never seen long way around or tried to grow a beard like Che guevara.
Just doing my thing, my own way. But there have been many before me for sure.
Did you ride in Nepal as well? If so, how did you find the roads and the journey through Nepal? Also what was your most adventurous experience here? I am a Nepalese so I am asking these to learn what people think when visiting my country. I haven't been that part of the world yet. But It's on my list!!!
Did you ever get down and dirty with anyone? Yes. Mostly with my motorcycle. :)
Why did you choose such a big bike? Is all the driving on roads? What modifications did you make before heading out? I chose my dream bike. I had no Idea where I would have taken my motorcycle in the future. At the time of purchase, I was in love with it. I still am!
I just added a lighter muffler, skid plate and rear rack. The bike itself is a marvel of technology.
I go on and offroad. see my youtube videos... ;)
Hey man, back when you were trekking across south america, did you visit Venezuela? When I was In brazil, It didn't occur to me to enter Venezuela. Then when I reached Colombia, the border with it was closed for vehicle due to the unstable situation. I really want to go. It's the pebble in my south american shoe. ;)
I have enjoyed watching your travels on IG. What is the scariest situation you have ever gotten yourself into while traveling? Thanks for tagging along! I had few close calls with my bike...but I guess, If you ride a motorcycle, it is quite common. I almost fell into a canyon... Ouch
Hi Paolo. Where would you say the best roads were? I mean, good condition, few potholes. Where would you say the best views were? What kind of spare parts did you bring along to make sure you could always keep going? Mmm best roads...i think ecuador had pretty spectacular new roads. At the time I think most roads were 5-10 years old and conditions were optimal.
Best views probably Peru. Nothing can beat the view from a 6000 m mountain...
You can't possibly carry all spare parts. You never know what could happen...but I did bring a spare front tube in case of a flat and some spare screws. Duct tape and cable ties are also a must for any traveller
[deleted] I do not have a single moment which I consider my favorite. Generally speaking, I could say that the "feeling of freedom" that riding with no schedule and limitation gives, Is the happy memory that I will bring with me even when this experience will be over. The scariest is certainly the moment when I almost fell into a canyon, while riding in Peru. Colca Canyon is one of the deepest canyons in the world and I lost control of the bike, riding down on a tiny dirt road. Fortunately I managed to stop right at the edge of it...but It took me a good 10 minutes to recover from that close call.
Have you ever feared for your life? As in, did it ever cross your mind that you might get mugged or something? Have you ever been mugged while traveling or been in that situation? Do you carry some sort of knife or gun? Never feared for my life. No. Maybe it's a bit naive of me but I've never felt in need to carry a weapon to protect myself. I don't think there are people out there willing to kill me to take my stuff. But i did cross countries where this kind of stuff happens. In any case, the probability that this would have happened was in my opinion way smaller than the contrary. In fact if you ever have the chance to talk to some of the other thousands of travellers that have been around for a while, none had the need to carry weapons or any sort of defense aid to protect their personage or belongings. Not even girls.
Have you had any accidents or near misses in your travels? If more than one, are there any that stand out? Tons!! Unfortunately riding a motorcycle doesn't leave any choice. I almost fell into a canyon in Peru. That wasn't good. Also, close calls with maaaany trucks in Bolivia. There are no driving rules there much... I crashed at 100km/h in Argentina and crashed against a wall, in San Francisco, distracted by my GPS. Normal day at the office! 😅
What was your favorite place you’ve traveled to so far? I have one favourite place, which I always mention because I support the underdogs... I also love nature and food, so...
Ecuador is my favourite country.
the below is a reply to the above
Any specifics or highlights about Ecuador you can share? Looking for my next trip with a friend! Galapagos is like Jurassic Park. But with no fancy shopping center. Would recommend Baños and Cuenca area too.
What was it like going through the Middle East? I've always wanted to explore that part of the world. Haven't quite reached the middle east yet. Stopped by the covid. booo
Any issues or denials to get your bike through customs anywhere? Nope. Just showing my paperwork and off i went! So far I haven't been in countries that required Carnet de Passage.
I see you have good amount of followers on insta and You tube. Have you thought about using it as a source of income like travel bloggers do or have you already done that? If not have you thought about doing it? Also might be rude but how much did you save in those years that can last so long. I mean if i were to do it like is there any bracket amount you'd like to give us? Also what about your fam? Not enough to generate income on both i think. But yeah, maybe I ll give it a go in the future. Not sure though...because you need to constantly being absorbed by the platform and create content to generate a good income...which I saw with other people became a burden, in the long run. I saved up 40k in 5 years of work. Best advice I can give is to spend your money wisely. Do not spend it in booze or clothes or any other unnecessary commodity that is not relevant in the long run. Being constantly focused on the preparation of the trip is 80% of what it actually takes to go fo it.
My family has been generally supportive about my trip. They sometimes worry but they do because they care. They don't fully understand my life choices but they respect those because they realized I am the only one responsible for my own future.
What is the worst weather you have had to ride through, and how did you deal with it? Oh man!! 2 days. One was when I rode 750km under frozen rain in canada, against 60km/h headwind, along lake superior. After i reached my destination, i watched the news and saw that they closed the road I just rode on because it collapsed, devoured by the amount of water that fell from the sky. Average temp was 2 degrees Celsius.
The other day was when I arrived in Vancouver 2 years ago in march. 30 cm of snow. -5°C and worst snow storm in the last decade. If i didn't die that day...
Great AMA. Just watched a few of your YouTube videos. Do you have music playing constantly while riding? How has your music likes changed and is there any songs you still play today from the Australia trip? Thanks I never listen to music while riding. I actually put some earplugs and try to enjoy the ride and let my thoughts flow. It's my meditation moment. Music I listen to change constantly...depending on mood and situation. I probably still have some ACDC tunes laying around in my playlists somewhere. ;)
How did you cross the Darian Gap? There were 4 options: - shipping container (Not so cheap, time consuming and risky in terms of getting the bike out from the port) $750 - air freight (fast. 4 hours and you are from one side to the other. not cheap, quick and headaches free) $1000 - fishermen boat (slow. Unsafe? Bike gets covered in salt for 5 days) $600 - sailing boat (5 days cruise to the san blas islands. Expensive. But fun holiday overall) $1200
I went with the plane.
Where you ever afraid or unsafe? I’ve wanted to backpack through South America, but as a single woman I’m afraid of putting myself in a dangerous situation. It's completely understandable to be worried in that sense. What I can tell you is that there is nothing to worry about. There are women travelling solo in many ways (backpacking, cycling, motorcycle, etc) through south america and they are FINE! No problems. I can list you the "do and don't" about travelling, but I believe that having a bit of commons sense is crucial. If you look for female solo travellers on insta, you will find tons of them. I am sure that they can give you a better and more specific understanding of what entails to travel solo as a woman in third world countries. But again, DO NOT WORRY. It is SAFE.
the below is a reply to the above
I did it in Europe and Iceland, but South America makes me more weary. What about bringing children? Did it feel safe for kids? Also, when it came to your hostel stays, did you ever see any families? Kids will have a blast in SA! I met plenty of families travelling with kids. It is challenging because of the school thing but it is possible!! The internet and online classes nowadays...
People in SA are very family oriented and have special care for kids. It is an incredible experience for kids to see a reality like the one over there.
Hostels are not quite the best for kids, I admit it. You can find plenty of bnb alternatives and family rooms all over the continent. The same options are available all over the world (hostels, bnb, hotel, motel, apartments, etc).
I'm thinking of purchasing the same bike, is it the R model?. What made you choose this bike as opposed to something that is shaft driven? how did you find the chain maintenance aspect over so many miles? It's amazing there were no mechanical problems at all. Is there a specific brand tyre you use and how many miles would you get from a set? were there many puncturers or blowouts? Knowing what you know now, would you have changed anything with the bike or added something before beginning the journey? I ride the 1190 adventure NON R model. I prefer chain because it's sincerely I wouldn't want to find myself with broken shaft in the middle of Bolivia. Chain can last up to 40-50k km if well maintained and lubricated. It doesn't take much of your time and it helps reminding yourself that you have to take care of your bike too. I really loved Shinko 705 as tyres. Cheap and super grippy in all surfaces. I didn't have many punctures at all. Maybe 4 in the whole trip! Lucky!
Sincerely, this bike has been beyond perfect and I am still in awe by the reliability and performances of this machine. Kudos to KTM for making such a monstruos bike! If you are not into fast corners and putting your knee down in turns, the R model is actually better because of the customizable shocks. Mine comes with WP electronic suspensions which can't be replaced with others.
Hi Paolo, been a long time follower on Instagram (since South America). Great to see you on here! Initially when you went to work in Australia, did you receive a job offer before moving there, or did you find it once already settled? How come you still have residency in Australia when you've travelled the world for years? Have you ever received any sponsorships along your travels (E.g. from companies or Instagram itself)? If not, have you considered going down that route in order to support your continuous journey? Best of luck, and I look forward to see where the road takes you. Hey! Thanks for tagging along since such a long time!!
When I moved to Australia I didn't have a job. I spent the first months just looking for some temp gigs, while settling in that new country, at the time. It was crazy because in 2010 people here in Italy thought I went mad for leaving my safe job here, and moving to Australia with no job and as an immigrant. Turned out to be a good choice after all!
I have residency there because I am also a citizen there. Got my Australian passport in 2014.
I haven't received any sponsorship or any monetary endorsement from any companies through Instagram. I don't have enough followers I believe to be considered an "influencer".
the below is a reply to the above
It's always a pleasure tagging along. That's fantastic. I want to work in a different country but all of those I've looked at only allow a work permit if you have been offered work or have experience in specialised manager positions. And as far as I know, one cannot apply for jobs while on a tourist/visitor visa. How did you work around that? Amazing achievement to receive your Australian citizenship in just 4 years! Ah, I see. What a funny world we live in. I moved to Australia with a working holiday visa, which allowed me to work only for 6 months at the time for each employer. I started working for a recruitment agency and then got bought and hired by my other company, that eventually sponsored me for my residency.
How has your sex life been on the trip? Haha sorry, it does say ask me 'anything'. I guess what I'm saying more specifically is a lot of guys have a fantasy of doing exactly what you're doing and doing plenty of "socializing" in different countries no strings attached. Just wondering if your trip has been fun in that regard or if it's too difficult when staying in hostels etc I did answer this question already but I'll go into few details again. Travelling in hostels is good and bad. You meet a lot of people but there's no privacy. I tend to respect other people generally so I avoid having sex on bunk beds, bathrooms and stuff like that (which happened to me instead). Not the best to have your bed rattling and having to wear headphones with loud music, trying to get some sleep. Haha
Anyway, the main "issue" in travelling and socializing is that you always have to leave. So unless you go partying and go for the wild night...every night...it's not simple to get close to somebody, even in that sense.
Anyway, my sex life was definitely complicated, compared to the one I had when living in one fixed place in Australia.
Amazing. A question: were you an experienced bike rider before you set off on your trip, or did you decide to use a bike on a whim, and learned as you went? How much biking experience would you recommend to someone before they try a trip like this? Also, what are your thoughts about using a bike vs a car? With a car, you can sleep in the back, making accommodations cheaper, and maybe a bit more luxurious than a tent, but they're also larger, more unwieldy things that cost more to fuel and repair. Hey! I've been riding motorcycles since I was 14yo (even earlier). So I guess I was kind of an experienced rider, but I wasn't an experience long distance rider so... Not sure if it makes sense to you.
I met different people who recently learned how to ride, doing the same thing I was doing with small learner bikes. I mean, there are literally no limits on what can you do if you want to do it and just...do it, without thinking too much about it.
You know what they say... 4 wheels move the body, 2 wheels move the soul.
Have you been to the Philippines? If so what was your experience and opinion about the place? Nooo! but definitely want to go there!!! I have a lot of Filipino friends in Australia and they told me about some incredible places to visit!
Just out of curiosity, when you go across continents. Do you start saving up weeks beforehand since the tickets will cost more than your usual expenditure and not to mention shipping your bike as well? Hopefully I can meet you in real life someday! I'm from Hong Kong but just started learning Italian during the pandemic! Grazie mille! Kudos to you, my friend!! Learning Italian is quite the challenge! just know that even most italians can't speak proper italian, so you'll be fine once visiting the country! ;)
I've been living off my savings so I've been just crossing countries like that. no much planning. Just hop on the bike and go. Shipping of motorcycle only occurred from Australia to South America and from Canada to Ireland. First one was by shipping boat and second one was with Air Canada Cargo. Incredibly, flying was cheaper.
Did you ever wish you had a smaller bike? I‘ve wanted to ask this question for years, ever since I saw a Ewan McGregor travel show, “Long Way Around.” In Ewan’s journey, he used a large BMW 1150/1200, and he was always joking about how jealous he was of the little bike (Ural 500cc?) his friend eventually rode. Thanks in advance! Yes. I was wishing I had a smaller and lighter bike when I was riding on sand in Brasil or Australia. But then I was quite happy to have a 1200cc engine under my seat when I was going up on some 5000m mountains or during long 800km day rides.
I mean, there is no perfect bike... And there are pro and cons with any kind of bike.
You just have to pick yours and go with it!
Have you heard of the bike dog? The_bike_dog on insta Yes!! I follow him on Insta!! Amazing feed!
Where are you now and what are your next 5 countries on your list? Italy now! The next 5 up will depend on how covid behaves in the next few months.
Did you ever make it to New Zealand? If so what was you favourite place in NZ? If not, do you plan to in the future? I've been to new zealand but not with my motorcycle. It is one of my dreams to ride there though. After what I've seen...
Amazing! Are you going to cross Austria? We have Schnitzel and Apfelstrudel 😉 Ahah Austria is next on my list of countries to visit. I PROMISE! ...i mean, i ride a KTM!
Have you ever been attacked by locals? If so, what was the reason? The only locals that really attacked me were stray dogs in Chile. Hundreds of those in the streets. They get pretty hostile when in groups...and they aim at the wheels mostly. They chase you and bark at your ankles. Haha 50 meters of pure adrenaline
How do you arrange money for food and fuel? How do you see yourself living your old age given that you likely don't have enough savings for retirement.... to survive in your 50+ or retirement age? I already addressed the money factor, but I will answer to the second question. I see myself as an old man...living in a 4x4 campervan, parked on some remote beach in Australia, alone, maybe with a dog... Probably with an empty bank account and no big house, but a life full of memories and hopefully a better understanding of myself as a human being. You are only afraid to die if you haven't fully lived, mate!
What do you enjoy about this lifestyle? And what’s a typical day like for you? The best thing about this lifestyle is the freedom that comes with it. No alarms in the morning, nobody that tells you what to do, no schedules. Free.
I wake up, have coffee and a small bite while checking my social media. Then I look at the map to see where and which routes could be feasible for the day. Then i pack and ride off. Half way in i look for accommodations in the potential destination. When I get there i check around and see if i like it or not. If yes I stay, otherwise i move on to the next location. This is something that only travelling on a motorcycle can give you. Fast change of location, no traffic, easy stop and go, low visibility. Then i find my spot for the night, unpack and enjoy my daily meal. Usually fresh veggies or some local products. At night i rest or sometimes exercise a bit.
Great AMA! 1. Do you ever wish you were with someone, to not be alone in your experiences? Or maybe for people to tag along for a while? (A 2nd person all the time might be a bit much if you like being by yourself). I’ve travelled a little bit by myself and really enjoyed being alone, but sometimes afterwards you might want to talk about an experience with someone who was there with you. I found the freedom of being alone more important, but I’ve never travelled as long as you. 2. Do you ever think of a future where you want to settle down? Maybe wife, kids, and all that? Did your wishes about that change while on the road? Good luck to you! I have travelled with another rider and even a couple. Not for me. It is hard to find another person you get along with 100%, especially when you are used to have it your way for so long! Said this if you are a solo rider, travelling with a couple 2up, is complicated because they usually have different speed and needs. I prefer to not have a partner with me. It would change the overall experience and I wouldn't be able to be by myself in silence and have moments of absolute peace. You can't be in touch with yourself and embrace the change with another person constantly reminding you who you are and who you have to be. Unfortunately the downsides are sometimes the moments of loneliness...but again, I got used to it. And now i prefer it this way.
As far as family and settling down goes...i am 40 years old and most of my friends are married, with stable jobs and kids. So yeah, it's a constant reminder of my choice in life. But so far, i am happy with what I have done. It's a choice and I am aware of the consequences.
