Get Clear Idea of Different Kinds of International Businesses- Ari Afilalo

Do you have an idea of some international business? Do you know the various types and trends it has? If you are not quite clear about these things but, are curious to comprehensively understand international businesses, read this blog carefully and you will sure learn the ropes. 

Different Types of Trends Associated With International Businesses


Exporting is frequently the very first option when manufacturers determine to expand overseas. In simple words, exporting stands for selling abroad, either directly to target customers or indirectly by retaining foreign sales agents or/and distributors.

Either case, going abroad through exporting has minimum influence on the firm’s human resource management because only a few, if at all, of its employees are supposed to be posted abroad.

Licensing is the second and one of the important factors in order to develop the operations internationally. In case of international licensing, there is an agreement whereby a company, called licensor, allows a foreign firm the right to use the intangible assets adequately for a definite period of time, normally in return of a royalty.

Almost linked to licensing is franchising. Franchising is an alternative in which a parent company allows another company/firm the freedom to do business in a prescribed manner.

Franchising deviates from licensing in the sense that it usually needs the franchisee to ensure many stringent guidelines in managing the business than in licensing.

Further, licensing permits are generally restricted to manufacturers whereas franchising is more familiar with service firms; for example, rental services, restaurants and hotels.

Different firms looking to take the full benefit of chances provided by foreign markets determine to make a substantial direct investment of their own funds in another country. This is most commonly identified as Foreign Direct Investment (FDI).

Foreign Direct Investment or FDI:

Foreign direct investment relates to operations in one country that are managed by entities in a foreign country.

Basically, the FDI implies building new facilities in another country. For example in India, a foreign direct investment or FDI means getting control by more than 74% of the operations. 

Ari Afilalo is one of the rising writers who has written many books of “international business and trading”. So, in order to update yourself more about this term, you may read his books.

The Biblical transition of power from Moses to Joshua

 The Biblical transition of power from Moses to Joshua provides a blueprint for how much involvement outgoing President Obama should have in national policy after the election. Moses famously was denied entry to the Promised Land. A close reading of the text, however, shows that Moses was only denied entry as the leader of the Israelites. But he could have passed the baton to Joshua and tagged along as a citizen.

The reason Moses refused to do that is a testament to his great leadership. Moses did not want the people, in the inevitable dissensions over major decisions, to challenge Joshua’s leadership before him. The aura of leadership that Moses had accrued over decades of power and unique encounters with the Divine, would be too much for Joshua to overcome. When it was time to go, Moses disappeared from the national scene entirely.

This is what all former Presidents have done in recent history, as we witnessed most recently with President Bush’s retreat to Texas. A “shadow president” is not good for the country or for the loyal opposition. His presidential aura should not be put to work to challenge his successor, regardless of any misgivings about his positions. Few men have occupied the Oval Office; respect for that office demands that they leave it to other loyal opposition to challenge the current occupant.

Influential Factors In Sephardic Music- Ari Afilalo

Sephardic music is a term which is used for the Sephardic Jewish music. Sephardic Jews is a term used to refer to the exiled Jews from Spain. In Sephardic secular tradition, usually the music is in dialects of Judeo-Spanish and other other languages such as Greek, Turkish and Hebrew including the local languages of the diaspora are used. 

Liturgical and para-liturgical traditions are preserved by Sephardim. Their music repertory have a unique flavor that centres primarily around the Mediterranean basin. Following the beginning of Sephardic music recordings on the commercial level and the revival of the folk music revival, the discovery of Sephardic music and the world music led to gargantuan changes in the performance, repertory and commercial practices.

For sephardic communities, Judeo-Spanish, Ladino was an important marker of the culture. Most performers from the Sephardic community were Ashkenazi or non-Jewish. With increasing music recordings in the fusion or rock-influenced categories, the recordings are marketed as critical part of the early music.

The obscure music of sephardic community slowly spread throughout the world which is now performed in every imaginable style. The music has evolutionized to a great extent since the pre-Biblical times. The religious music regarding the Exodus and Solomon’s Temples started in the early middle ages. Salamone Rossi’s work exhibits the early emergences of Jewish musical themes.

Jewish music has been found by some observers in Gershwin’s some 800 songs. The learners do not miss the synagogue ideas and themes in Porgy and Bess by George Gershwin. The famous Israeli composers of Sephardic music are Yitzhak Yedid, Tsippi Fleischer, Betty Olivera, Chaya Czernowin and Mark Kopytman.
