59 Brilliant Brazilian Innovations

From Anderson Silva to Hot Politicians

— August 10, 2009 — Naughty
Anderson Silva showed some Brazilian pride when he demolished his most recent opponent at UFC 101. Brazil has been the home of many great innovations and Anderson Silva continues to prove that point.

The South American powerhouse has more to offer than just Anderson Silva, with groundbreaking advertisements, statement-making graffiti, and beautiful politicians, as can be seen in this cluster of Brazilian innovations.

Implications - Warmer climates have always been favourable destinations for many people, however these tropical destinations are receiving praise for being more than just tourist destinations. Society has become increasingly tolerant and embracing of differing cultures, and with this, companies need to think about expanding on a more global level. By having websites that can cross international boundaries consumers are more likely to favor your product of service.
