Larkin and Lacey-The Voice of Reason

We live in an indifferent world. Social norms and values are no longer what they were, and that is why there is a lot of conflict in the world.

The State of Arizona, too, is full of troubles because of Joe Arpaio, a man who has from the get-go undermined Latinos. Joe Arpaio, before his appointment as Maricopa County sheriff, had promised to do a lot in helping protect the rights of the minority.

However, his promises would never get to see the light of day. Joe, in his twenty-four-year rule as the sheriff, has subjugated immigrants to a lot of hurts. Many Latinos have fallen victim to Joe’s wrath, not because they did anything wrong but because Arpaio has always had a foul taste for people from the Hispanic community.

Like I said, Joe Arpaio has had a troublesome stay in Maricopa County because of his bad deeds. People, having taken note of Arpaio’s poor performance, took him to court after failing to deliver on his mandate.

If it were you, would you take such actions lightly? Joe, after years of active service, felt intimidated, and that is why he arrested Jim and Michael in the middle of the night for disclosing information about a grand-jury investigation.

Lacey and Larkin, after twenty-four days behind bars, found their freedom. It is shortly after that the duo took Maricopa County to the task, suing them for making a wrongful arrest that affected them both physically and emotionally. The case, after a lengthy process, got determined in favor of the duo and they even got a significant compensation for their troubles.

Today, Jim and Michael are millionaires all because of the events that happened less than a decade ago. The duo, instead of using their newly found fortune for pleasantries, has created the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund to help end social injustices in Arizona. The organization, through its affiliates, has brought the likes of Arpaio to the task, helping alleviate the standard of living in the state.

In reality, Michael and Jim would not be where they are today were it not for Arpaio. Joe has in a way helped alleviated the careers of the do, giving them all the mileage they need to advance their agenda. Mr. Lacey and Larkin after many years of trying can now boast about bringing Joe Arpaio to justice.

Arpaio, before his 2017 pardon was serving his jail term for undermining the rule of law. However, Joe is now free all thanks to President Trump. The future, although oblique, motivates Jim and Michael to continue with the struggle. After all, the migrants in Arizona only have Lacey and Larkin to help advance their agenda.

So, where did the duo meet? Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey met in 1972 at a time when the two were working at Phoenix New Times.

The duo after making a connection, have continued to work together, and it is during their endeavors that they have opened the public eye in what is going on in Arizona. Therefore, the two journalists are the voice of reason in the region.

Learn A Little About Military Veteran Ronald Fowlkes

Almost all countries around the world have at least some form of military. While tiny countries and New Zealand, for example, might not boast any military members or equipment used to defend their respective homelands and allies, the United States is home to one of the world’s most powerful military forces on the planet.

 

Ronald Fowlkes is one of the brave American citizens that served the United States military; Mr. Fowlkes even put himself in the line of combat multiple times to defend his country, its 300-million-odd inhabitants, and the basic civil liberties and human rights that the nation protects for all of its citizens.

 

Here’s Mr. Ronald Fowlkes’ work background

While some people enter their homeland’s military because they aren’t sure of what else to occupy their times with, Mr. Fowlkes entered the United States Marine Corps immediately after turning 18 because he always felt a strong connection to the most demanding branch of the military across the United States – the Marines.

 

He entered the Marines in 1989 and left four years later. The vast majority of Marines don’t gain any promotions during their initial four-year stint, though Ronald Fowlkes brought home two promotions with merit, rather than promotions made because someone ahead of him had passed away or been discharged from the forces.

 

Afterward, he began working for the Department of Defense as an independent contractor in which he was stationed in the heart of war-torn Iraq during Operation Iraqi Freedom.

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis create health and beauty powerhouse

Randy Ray and Wendy Lewis were long known as two of the most prolific entrepreneurs in the North American direct-selling business. After having founded a large number of successful firms, the couple had become legendary as well as very wealthy. In fact, by their mid-30s, Ray and Lewis had already amassed a large enough fortune to ensure that they would never again have to work. But they continued doing so out of the pure rush of creating great companies and their own drive for excellence.

But as the couple approached their 70s, they thought that they would finally give retirement a try. Now with a number of grandkids, who they loved to spend time with, Ray and Lewis thought that spending more time with family and with each other could only be a good thing. However, the innately driven couple didn’t count on exactly how big of a change going from international tycoons to Florida retirees would be. The couple quickly realized that they were not constituted for day after day of purposelessness. They began selling a few products out of their garage. Before long, Jeunesse Global had officially become a going concern.

Given their long track record of high-level success, it probably shouldn’t be a surprise that Ray and Lewis were able to avoid the missteps common to new business owners and begin growing their new venture quickly. But just how quickly would astonish even them. By the end of its first year, Jeunesse Global was doing nearly $1 million in sales. By its fifth year, it had thousands of distributors and was selling tens of millions of dollars per year in health and beauty products. Today, the company is estimated to be worth more than $1 billion, a level of growth that is almost unprecedented in the history of American business.

Behind all of this stunning success has been the company’s great products. With its Youth Enhancement System, Jeunesse Global has created a series of products that, for the first time, is allowing people to indefinitely postpone the worst effects of aging. In doing this, the company is helping to bring about Generation Young.

Eastman Kodak Is Under Fire By Sahm Adrangi Of Kerrisdale Capital

Eastman Kodak is a longtime printing and photography corporation that was a former giant in the industry with over 100 years of experience under their belt. Today, the company is largely under speculation within the investment industry thanks to investors like Sahm Adrangi. Sahm is a reputable investor that stated up Kerrisdale Capital, a private investment managing company. Kerrisdale recently released a report on Eastman Kodak discussing why they are problematic despite the 187 percent increase in company stock value. This increase took place after the company’s announcement to partner up with a cryptocurrency group that allowed them to launch their own image-licensing platform that is blockchain-enabled.

Based on the current issues that face Eastman Kodak, which is largely the same issues they faced 6 years ago when they almost hit bankruptcy, these attempts at taking advantage of the crypto craze is nothing short of a scheme. Sahm Adrangi calls into question the integrity of the company’s management when they are not even attempting to fix their current issues, which should be apparent to this longtime company. Despite these recent partnerships and image-licensing technologies, Kodak has not gained any public attention, which will lead to a decline in revenue again.

The unjustified hype of their shares has also taken hold of many investors that investing before doing proper research in the company, which is why Sahm Adrangi is working to release reports on these problematic companies. Kerrisdale Capital backs up their statements 100 percent, which is also why they currently stand to profit in the face of Kodak’s failure. As CIO for Kerrisdale Capital, Sahm Adrangi is always certain of his decisions and research into a company’s background and this has led to many investors waiting for his advice before making big investments in the first place. Thanks to Sahm Adrangi’s investment decisions, Kerrisdale Capital has accumulated hundreds of millions of dollars over the years, investing in many different companies around the globe.

The Operators of The Frontera Fund Respond to Trump’s Pardon of Joe Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are only two of the hundreds, possible thousands of victims of former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona: Joe Arpaio. Lacey and Larkin are journalists who previously wrote for the Phoenix New Times, which they also owned. Michael Lacey, Jim Larkin, and their newspaper had been focusing their efforts on getting Joe Arpaio out of office for a very long time. Their journalistic efforts nearly got them in a lot of trouble, but ultimately caused a large settlement to be awarded to them. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin and http://james-larkin.com/press/

The journalists and the many other victims, for just a brief moment, believed their troubles were behind them in July of 2017. Joe Arpaio was charged and convicted with criminal contempt of court. But, before victims could be awarded justice at sentencing, Donald Trump pardoned Joe Arpaio.

The move by Trump didn’t exactly come as a surprise. Joe Arpaio and Donald Trump have a very similar fan bases, and Donald Trump had suggested the possibility of pardoning Joe Arpaio already. As you can imagine, victims of Arpaio are livid. They expected justice but got none.

In response to the pardoning, Michael Lacey listed out the alleged crimes of Joe Arpaio: Running a concentration camp, racial profiling, torture, battery, and negligent homicide. The fact that Joe Arpaio was only convicted of contempt of court is a “failure of the justice system,” according to Michael Lacey.

So how did Joe Arpaio manage to remain Sheriff of Maricopa County for over two decades? By intimidating, smearing, and threatening his political opposition. Arpaio even abused his power in order to prosecute political rivals. In a recent interview conducted by the Phoenix New Times, Michael Lacey lists, in detail, the long list of crimes committed by Arpaio.

As previously mentioned, Lacey and Larkin were nearly sent to prison by Joe Arpaio but instead were awarded a near 4 million dollar settlement for the illegal arrest. Arpaio arrested them for publishing court documents in their paper, but the courts ruled that a citizen has the right to publish the content of a subpoena served to them. Arpaio believed he had successfully locked up two of his biggest critics but actually added fuel to their fire.

Using the cash from the settlement, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to create two new organizations. They created Front Page Confidential and The Frontera Fund. With the help of these two new organizations they are continuing their fight against Joe Arpaio.

The Frontera Fund is a charity working to correct the damage done by Arpaio, and Front Page Confidential is where they continue their journalistic efforts against him.

The Great Efforts of Larkin and Lacey in Addressing the Cases of Discrimination in Community

Larkin and Lacey have always been on the frontline in analyzing the matters that are related to the community. There are several instances that have led to the two individuals log heads with the authorities concerning the challenges faced by the people in the community.

Larkin and Lacey Through their philanthropic role in the society have restored the rights of the refugees in various parts of the United States. The region that had been affected the most by the case is the city of Arizona and Larkin, and Lacey came forward boldly to accuse president Trump on his decision to retain the leadership of Joe as the sheriff of the Maricopa county.

His leadership had been associated with many cases of corruption and racism. Additionally, most of the people who were serving in his office were anti-immigrants. The move of president Trump to retain him to serve in the office for the second term marked the continuity of the cases of atrocities that he has been practicing for the last 24 year

Larkin and Lacey decided to help the society by venturing into the circle of philanthropism and left the matters related to their earlier career in journalism. The factor that pushed them in the scene was the numbers of reported cases of discrimination that had swallowed the society, and most of the leaders were takin a blind eye on it.

They strategized their move and came up with an organization by the name Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund. The aim of the organization was to put the small organization in the better lane of addressing the issues facing the community particularly in the circle of the human rights. Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund provided finance to several organizations through efforts of the Larkin and Lacey.

The other agenda of the organization was to let all the immigrants get informed on the matters regarding their rights in the society. Furthermore, training programs of the leaders of the various small units of organizations were erected. The primary reason for doing so was to make the objectives of the human rights achieved within the rights time frame.

Sheriff, in the year 2007 ordered the jail of the Larkin and Lacey after the information that the two journalism made in their magazine concerning the matters of corruption in the administration of the sheriff. The act came as a surprise to the community, and most of the people demanded the release of Larkin and Lacey forcing their case to be dropped.

Larkin and Lacey had concentrated the attention on the issue of the grand jury. The aftermath of the ordeal was a compensation worth $3.75 paid to the two in 2013. They decided to invest the amount in facilitating the programs of the small organizations in the circle of human rights.

There are many organizations that achieved their missions through the support of Larkin and Lacey via Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund. The push for the equality in the society by the two attracted the attention of many concerned bodies across the world.

They further created an avenue for the immigrants to air their grievances by championing for the freedom of speech. The relentless effort by Larkin and Lacey bore fruits and created sanity on the matters of discrimination of immigrants that had marred the city of Arizona.

Peace of Mind for All

The world can be an extremely dangerous place, and access to the internet and cellular devices to utilize it make it much more difficult to monitor. The United States prison system is no safe haven for criminal activities using such devices, in fact, it’s actually more difficult to make sure that inmates are doing what they’re supposed to be doing in prison than ever before. Every day more contraband enters a prison, with inmates communicating openly with people on the outside, allowing them to find creative ways of smuggling items within prison walls. What are the most lucrative items That are smuggled into a prison is a mobile phone, which can be used to do a variety of different criminal acts outside of the prison. One common thing that cell phones are used for the inmates is to form deals with other criminals outside, allowing them to you complete drug deals and additional contraband activities. While it is currently extremely hard to monitor and to regulate this from happening, Securus Technologies, a high-end and well-respected information technology firm, is currently working on a way to do just that.

 

The proposed security system that will be able to monitor and disable these devices is known by Securus Technologies has the wireless containment system. The system itself is fairly advanced, allowing trained personnel to successfully operate it and monitor the use of unauthorized as well as authorized wireless and network signals. Once a signal is located within the confines of the wireless containment system than the operator has the option to either accept the signal from going through or going out of the prison or disabling it all together. Once a cellular device is disabled in the network it will never be able to be an operator chooses to accept it. Once this System is fully operational it will undoubtedly change the way that security is done within the prison system. It is an exciting time for Securus Technologies as well as their customers, as it will offer another layer of protection to those who put their lives on the line each day in order to maintain peace within prison walls.

 

For inmates who want to be able to return home someday and are currently on their best behavior, the system is also a site of really for them. Well they have nothing to fear from the security net Securus Technologies is producing for them, these inmates, in particular, will be able to have peace of mind knowing that they are being watched over and protected. These are difficult times for these individuals and it is good to know that a corporation has their customers backs when they needed the most.

Shervin Pishevar Describes a Tectonic Shift in American Landscape

 

Shervin Pishevar, an early investor in growing entities such as Dollar Shave Club, Airbnb, Uber, and Warby Parker, has made a living off of his ability to see the future of companies long before the public is aware of their potential. Because of this unique ability, when the outspoken billionaire, and founder of An investing firm, opens his mouth, people in the business world tend to listen, even when his statements are steeped in controversy.

After a brief sabbatical from the social media platform, Twitter, Shervin Pishevar returned to the network, for which he has been notoriously active on, to unleash a tweetstorm consisting of 50 messages of decidedly controversial nature. In this tweetstorm, Mr. Pishevar discussed tech frontrunners, Google and Amazon, as well as the future of the United States’ economy. In his estimation, the future of these corporations, as well as the stock market, look bleak, and he predicts that both tech companies will eventually succumb to their own size, while the stock market is due to fall an astounding 6000 points in the near future.

The entire business world was shaken just a day after Shervin Pishevar released his tweets, as the Dow Jones dipped by 500 points in only a 30 minute period.

Shervin Pishevar also discussed the nature of America’s infrastructure, describing it as crumbling, while other nations around the world are seeing incredible gains in this regard. He backed his claim by referencing China, which employed 1500 workers to build a train station, which was completed in just a 9 hour time span.

In today’s America, this is a feat that would border on the realm of impossibility, further emphasizing the gap that has occurred between the United States and competing nations. He also cited Silicon Valley’s loose grip on technological innovation as a key factor in the United States falling behind, as physical location within these borders is no longer necessary to create a global company. He added that the American way regarding innovation had now become global, reducing the power long housed in Silicon Valley.
