Bruno Fagali is an Attorney in Brazil that specializes in Administrative, State, and Parliamentary Law. He currently serves as the Corporate Integrity Manager in Nova/SB and practices independently through his agency – FAGALI Advocacy. Bruno Fagali and Lucas Pedroso recently wrote an article about the impacts of the dreaded “FAKE NEWS” on the electoral process. Fake News is a term that has been coined by the United State’s embarrassment and chief, Donald Trump. The Donald used it to discredit real news outlets like CNN and NBC. He did this whenever they would report on real news stories that were less than flattering to the idiot and chief.
The article, The Fake News Threat by the TSE and it’s Newest Threat: the Deep Fakes. “Fake News” in this context talks about the very real threat that robot (automated profiles)social media accounts have on a Presidential Election. Brazil first felt the impact of these bot accounts in their 2014 elections that were heavily influenced by the malicious information disseminated by these robot accounts. They found that three of best candidates used up to 1,200 of these automated accounts to sway voters.
As if the robot accounts weren’t bad enough there is now an even bigger threat to finding authentic information on the internet now. The newest threat is called Deep Fakes. Deep Fakes are extremely dangerous; they are video’s that have Presidential candidates or celebrities faces implanted on someone else’s body in the video. So it makes the viewer think that someone videotaped this person in a compromising act. What makes these so dangerous is that they are easy to make, hard to identify that they’re not real, and the software is on a free app, called FakeApp, and a newer app called Lyrebird.
The TSE is The Superior Electoral Court(in Portuguese: Tribunal Superior Eleitoral). They are the highest authority in regards to Brazilian Electoral Justice. They have created a special council to find legal ways to combat “Fake News” in Brazil’s Presidential Elections and in general. As of right now, there is no law against the immorality of putting someone’s face on another person’s body, so the TSE’s special council is examining ways to rectify this.
Bruno Fagali is doing critical work by reporting on these robot accounts and apps. While everyday people are somewhat aware that everything they see on social media may not be real, this information is a much-needed reminder that we have to be vigilant in identifying the real from the fake. Just to put it in perspective the FakeApp has been downloaded over one hundred thousand times. And it will only increase if people like the TSE and Bruno Fagali don’t speak out and find ways to combat the Fake News no one will be safe.

Jeff Yastine recently made a viral video about Kennedy Accounts. These are little known accounts that claim to offer stocks at major discounts. Yastine has researched these accounts, and he has found that these accounts are real and are solid investment options. Kennedy Accounts are a financial product created during the Kennedy Administration. They allow companies to directly sell stocks to investors rather than selling them through a brokerage. This benefits both companies and average investors as it allows them to avoid having to pay high commission fees that can wipe out returns for both investors and companies. There are currently four hundred and forty-nine companies that offer these direct stock buying options. These investments are underused because traditional brokerages do not offer them. This means that investors have the chance to purchase undervalued investments without having to pay commission prices.
Jeff Yastine also believes that digital security will soon become a major investment. This is due to an increasing use of digital currency, average people keeping their financial records on their computers, cloud storage of data, and the use of online tools for everything from bill payment to medical records. In addition, digital security is becoming a major issue due to numerous major digital security failures showing up in the news. This includes such things as the Equifax, Target, and Yahoo leaks. This has led to Jeff Yastine recommending that investors put money into digital security firms. These companies have an established need and will be increasingly needed in the future. In addition, the stock price of these investments will continue to rise as digital security increasingly becomes a major issue.
