“Se falta liberdade de pensamento, todas as outras liberdades humanas estão sacrificadas, desde os fundamentos.”
(When there is no more freedom of thinking, all other human freedoms have been totally sacrificed).
A quote by Francisco Cavalcanti Pontes de Miranda (1892-1979), lawyer, philosopher, diplomat, and writer. The principal human freedoms are established in the Universal Declaration of Rights, in Article 18:
“Everyone has the right to freedom of thought, conscience and religion; this right includes freedom to change his religion or belief, and freedom, either alone or in community with others and in public or private, to manifest his religion or belief in teaching, practice, worship and observance.”

Introduction of the Havaianas flip flops.
Havaianas are very common in Brazil. The flip flops are not only used on the beach or in the shower, but also in the streets, and at home. Everyone – young, old, rich, poor – uses these pieces of rubber. Despite the name might associate with Hawaii, Havaianas are inspired upon Japanese sandals. Initially, only women wore these flip flops, but since the cultural revolution in the Eighties also men wear them. The flip flops are available in a broad variety of colors and designs.
