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.

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.

Advocates for human and civil rights

Human rights groups in the world play a crucial role in ensuring that there is justice in the world. One of the biggest roles that rights groups play in the society is ensuring that freedom prevails. It is wrong for any human being to be subjected to acts of human rights violations for whatever reason.

The reason why we have laws is so that human beings can be protected from violation of their rights by the rogue governments and individuals. A society that has embraced the role of the rights groups is likely to have a stable government.

Rights groups not only deal with recording cases that have happened. They also do a lot in ensuring that the public is sensitized on the importance of observing them. Their role is therefore essential in any dynamic and progressive society. In modern society, there are still issues that need to be sorted out. This is where the human rights groups are needed. They have to make sure that even the small issues are done away with.

The policy of rights protection is that even if one person is discriminated upon, it is the right of the whole society to make sure that they condemn the act. The right of one person is as important as that of a whole community. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Also, human rights violations normally start as an insignificant thing and soon develop into a national issue. It is a practice that needs to be nipped in the bud. It is retrogressive and primitive.

Although violations of human rights are condemned in law, they still happen. The saddest part is that those who orchestrate such atrocities are the same people who are meant to shield the people from them.

The governments lead in committing acts of human rights violations. In many areas around the world, governments have been accused of violating the rights of the people, and it is for this reason that the United Nations established an international court for crimes against humanity.

Campaigns against human rights have gone international. Under the United Nations, there is a group called UNHCR which deals with the rights of the refugees.

The organization takes care of such people by providing food and housing supplies. They also negotiate with the governments to accord refugees protection in their refugees camp.

Other privately established groups that are very vocal include the Amnesty International and Human Rights Watch. The groups that are respected on matters of human rights protection.

The two groups detail cases of violations and forward complaints to the UN for action to be taken against governments that perpetuate massive human rights discrimination.
