Conor Lamb and End Citizens United Team up in Pennsylvania Special Election

     The times are certainly changing in the political world. Since the election of Donald Trump to the White House, there has been a renewed effort by progressives everywhere to get out and vote. With the 2018 Midterm Elections approaching, there is no better time than now to try and make a difference. End Citizens United is certainly doing their part and that is why the political action committee has endorsed Conor Lamb in his hunt for a Congressional seat in Pennsylvania’s 18th District.

Conor Lamb is far from an established Democrat, thanks in large part to his youth, but End Citizens United sees something special in the prospective Congressman. Pennsylvania’s 18th Congressional District seat opened up after Republican representative Tim Murphy was forced to resign in disgrace after it came to light that he was pressuring an extramarital affair to have an abortion — two factors that are big no-nos. Lamb will be running against Rick Saccone for the seat. While this specific district is deep red, End Citizens United and Conor Lamb already see a path to victory.

We need only to look to Alabama in order to see that there are real changes going on in 2018. Since Trump was elected, Democrats have picked up 34 state seats, a governor seat and a Senate seat all while Republicans have only managed to pick up four state seats. That doesn’t mean that Conservatives are packing it in, however, as Donald Trump has already taken to Twitter in order to endorse Saccone.

No matter what Trump and the RNC decide to do, the fact that Lamb was able to pick up an endorsement from End Citizens United is a big deal. End Citizens United is one of the leading progressive political action committees in the country and they have been instrumental in the energized blue base that we have seen in 2018. End Citizens United was established in order to champion campaign finance reform and their primary goal is to put legislators in place who will be willing to strip the 2010 Supreme Court decision surrounding Citizens United. Lamb is one of those progressives who seems more than willing to stand up for and champion campaign finance reform.

Democrats everywhere have seen a boost in energy from their base since Trump’s election. The resistance movement is growing and people like Lamb are being put into a position where they can become long-lasting difference makers for their party. With ECU at his side, Lamb could be prepared to shock the world.

Betsy DeVos has the Will Power to Push America in a Certain Direction

President Donald Trump introduced a woman with little political experience to the world as his pick for Secretary of Education. Her name is Betsy DeVos, and most people in the United States did not know much about her. Still, little nuggets of information began to pour in as soon as she was picked by President Trump, and things were not looking great.

 

People learned that she believed in school choice, which basically means that parents get to choose the schools their kids can attend, be it religious, private, or public. The system would use vouchers, and parents can use the money collected through taxes in whatever way they choose. The problem is that Betsy also believes that the government should not vet or regulate private or religious schools. In essence, she wants these types of institutions to take taxpayer money without answering to the government of the people. Learn more: http://www.philanthropyroundtable.org/topic/excellence_in_philanthropy/interview_with_betsy_devos

 

Betsy’s plan for schools has been activate in Michigan. Many residents of the state now have the choice to have their kids go to private schools. The problem is that this initiative has also made it impossible for small public schools to stay open, meaning kids from poor communities now have no school to go to. There is little to no public transportation in some of these neighborhoods, which forces these kids to walk for miles before they get to their schools. It seems that DeVos is very proud of her success in Michigan, which is part of the reason public education officials and teachers are scared of her.

 

There is no doubt that Betsy is not afraid to use wealth to get her way. She is driven by her desire to see parents take their kids to Christian-based schools as she is a devout Christian herself. Mike Cox, a former state attorney general for Michigan, talked about the massive money-funded power she is not afraid to use to undermine public education, which she feels has failed Americans. Still, she was ready to defend her positions and promise Americans that she was ready to fight for them and whatever they wanted.

 

Betsy’s confirmation hearing in front of the Senate and in front of the world was going to give her a chance to defend herself but, needless to say, that did not go as planned. DeVos seemed confused at times in front of the Senate and gave nonsensical answers to some of their questions. It appeared that she was in over her head. Betsy did not seem to know much about public education though she did criticize it. Some believed her thoughts did not have much substance.

 

Perhaps one of the most unintentionally comical moments during the entire hearing was the moment she attempted to defend guns in schools. It seems like Betsy is afraid that bears would rise up and attempt to break down the school fence to gain access to educational facilities. This inevitable bear attack makes it necessary for schools to have weapons in order to have a fighting chance against this bear revolution. Late night comedy shows poked fun at her answer and her overall ignorance, but none of that mattered. Mike Pence, VP to President Trump, helped vote this woman into her position after the Senate vote tied.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio Atrocities Revealed

The former Sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio, held that position since 1992, and throughout the years, his practices have come into question on a multitude of occasions. Recently, Joe Arpaio was thrust into the public spotlight for his unethical practices regarding prisoners when the conditions of his jail, which was coined “tent city,” gained national attention.

Under his watch, numerous people who were jailed died while in police custody, and with his discriminatory approaches regarding minorities coming to the forefront, it was of considerable disappointment to Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey when the President of the United States, Donald Trump, decided to pardon him, despite the substantial evidence against him.

The feud between Jim Larkin, his partner Michael Lacey, and former Sheriff Joe Arpaio began almost immediately after he was elected to office in 1992. The situation finally came to a head ten years ago, when, after, the Sheriff, Joe Arpaio accused one of their publications of disclosing confidential information regarding a grand-jury, he had them arrested.

The move to have Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey arrested would prove to be another misstep for Sheriff Joe Arpaio, as they would take the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department to court, beginning a five-year episode that ends with the newspapermen on top. The initial charges, due to a clear violation of constitutional rights that they represented, would be dropped within 24 hours. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/blogs/az-aclu-honors-new-times-founders-jim-larkin-and-mike-lacey-as-civil-libertarians-of-the-year-6500737 and https://about.me/michael-lacey

It would eventually be discovered that the plot to have Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey arrested was all a part of a setup due to the fact the Sheriff Joe Arpaio had become fed up with the coverage of the New Times on the unethical practices of he, and his entire department.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin helped to build a newspaper and print publication empire that spanned the globe. Their publications, such as the Village Voice, LA Weekly, and the Miami New Times are today regarded as some of the finest in their category. They have received a number of honors throughout their history based on their staunch investigative reporting, and their magazine-style writing.

Today, the magazines that Larkin and Lacey helped to bring to prominence reach over 9 million print readers each month, as well as an additional 56 million viewers online. Despite the fact that, today, their publications have a worldwide footprint, their empire began in 1970 on the campus of Arizona State University.

At that time, Michael Lacey had already decided to drop out of school and had recruited two other students to help bring his vision along. Soon after, with the help of his business partner, Jim Larkin, the inaugural issue of Phoenix New Times was developed, along with the foundation for their eventual conglomerate.

It was in 1983 that Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey saw their first major leap, after acquiring Westword, and 17 additional publications across the United States.

Some of these publications, including the Village Voice, would grow to be juggernauts, firmly cementing the legacies of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

Elysium Health: Supplementing Good Health

Elysium Health is a consumer health company that aims to help people live healthier, longer. Founded by an MIT scientist Dr. Leonard Guarente, Elysium Health works to translate advances in science into health products that work. Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research on the genetic and molecular causes of aging prior to founding Elysium Health.

Elysium Health conducts extensive research and tests on its products before putting them out to market. Currently, the company is working on new products that focus on cognitive health, skin health, microbiome, muscle function, and circadian rhythms that are all in various stages of clinical and pre-clinical trials. While researching its products, Elysium Health works with well-known institutions like Harvard and Cambridge.

Right now, the company sells Basis—a daily supplement that works to support cellular health within our bodies. Basis increases levels of NAD+ in our cells, a coenzyme that naturally decreases in levels as we grow older. NAD+ is key to many of our cellular functions. By increasing levels of NAD+ in our cells as we grow older, Basis supports those functions and helps our cellular health as a result.

Basis is sold on Elysium Health’s website. There are several options available for those who want to purchase it: a monthly subscription, a six- or twelve-month prepaid subscription to the supplement, or an individual purchase. Each individual jar of Basis contains 60 capsules, which is enough for a 30-day supply. The most popular option is the six-month subscription as it allows users to test out the long-term effects of Basis.

Basis has been clinically tested to ensure that it does, in fact, produce higher levels of NAD+ for its users and it has been third-party tested for quality as well.

Waiakea Water – More Than Just Water

Waiakea bottled water is much more than just another bottled water brand. Waiakea stands for preservation, sustainability, and of course, natural drinking water. Waiakea water is doing all it can to reduce its carbon footprint and is also providing much needed clean drinking water to communities worldwide.

Waiakea water is actually Hawaii volcanic water that comes from the Mauna Loa volcano. The water from the volcano travels over 14,000 feet through filtering volcanic rock before it gets bottled. Waiakea is also good for you and has volcanic water benefits such as Alzheimer-beating silica. It has been found that consuming just 10mg of silica a day can greatly reduce the likelihood of getting Alzheimer’s. Waikea water has about 30 mg/L. Silica is also what gives Waiakea water its smoothness.

Each year, over 50 billion bottles are used, and a huge number of those bottles end up in our landfills where they will stay for about 1000 years when they finally begin to degrade. Waiakea water bottles only take about 15 years to break down. That is substantially less than the “average” decomposing rate of a plastic bottle. Waiakea is greatly reducing the amount of waste that builds up on our beautiful planet. Waiakea water pH is between 7.8 and 8.8 which makes it naturally alkaline. Purified water has a pH of about 7.

Waiakea uses a facility that uses 33 percent renewable energy to manufacture its product, and the company uses an aquifer that has a 1.4 billion gammon recharge rate. Waiakea is also considered to be a CarbonNeutral company and uses 100 percent polyethylene terephthalate. The way that the company produces its bottled water also reduces emissions by over 90 percent as well.

Waiakea water has partnered with Pump Aid to bring fresh drinking water to the communities that need it the most. With their help, Pump Aid has been able to donate 650 liters of clean water to rural African communities and has also gotten 3,200 Elephant Pumps established so that they can get clean drinking water. Waiakea gives back and is helping to keep our world beautiful.

Louis Chenvert Laid the Blueprint for Long-Term Success at UTC

While the former Chief Executive Officer of United Technologies Corporation has blazed a trail that has made many of his counterparts consider him one of the most successful in the company’s long history, his path to success was not a straightforward one. After garnering his bachelor of commerce degree in production management, Louis Chenevert worked for several major corporations, helping to take them to the next level, while also creating a solid reputation for winning. He would spend over a decade with General Motors before joining Pratt & Whitney; an opportunity that would change his personal life, as well as the trajectory of many of his contemporaries. In 2006, Louis Chenevert was elected CEO of United Technologies Corporation, bringing with him a cutting-edge idea pertaining to a new plane engine, to be named the GTF. After years of development, and billions spent in investment dollars, the GTF was complete. What separated this engine from any of its prior iterations was the fact that it would cut hazardous emissions in half, while also requiring almost twenty percent less fuel to operate it.

Throughout his time with UTC, Louis Chenevert maintained a staunch commitment to the future, without sacrificing the short-term goals that were expected of a man of his stature. His methods, particularly his focus on employee education and dedication to the future of the corporation, were innovative during their implementation, and have proven to be invaluable to its continued success. By providing his employees with the opportunity to garner an increased education provided by United Technologies Corporation, the latest ideas where always at the helm. It was his belief that investing in one’s employees is essential to the long-term success of a corporation due to his understanding that technology alone wouldn’t move the company forward. This school of thought continues to be incorporated at United Technologies Corporation even in Mr. Chenevert’s absence, and since his departure from the company has proven to be vital to its continued success. Louis Chenevert has received a number of honors and recognition for his exploits in the business world, and in 2011, he was given an honorary doctorate by his alma mater, HEC Montreal.

Roberto Santiago’s Center of Modern Entertainment

Brazilian businessman Roberto Santiago is one of the most highly esteemed entrepreneurs in the country. His highest achievement is the Manaira Shopping Mall which was erected in 1989 in Roberto Santiago’s hometown Jaoa Pessoa.

 

Roberto Santiago was born in 1958 and went to Pio X – Marist College after which Roberto Santiago graduated in Business administration from the University Center of Joao Pessoa. Roberto Santiago worked in the business sector for about ten years before he could establish his own business with the start of Manaira Shopping. His goal was to create a place for entertainment for people of Joao Pessoa to enjoy.

 

TheMnaira Shopping was dubbed center of modern entertainment from the start, and it has been maintaining that reputation ever since. Currently, the mall is more than 200 stores, a vast food court and gourmet area, a gaming area, a gym and a few pools, financial facilities, a college, several cinemas some of which for 3D, a theatre, and its very own rooftop concert hall.

 

The Manaira Shopping needed an expansion a dozen times over the years so one could say it was an ongoing project. The latest increase was earlier in 2017, and it was of the garage area which already had six floors, to begin with. The constant growth of the number of visitors prompted the expansions of the food court, the parking lot, the garage, as well as the addition of more brands including global luxury names.

 

Of the most prized expansion of the Manaira Shopping Mall was inaugurated in 2009 as a way to celebrate the birthday of the Manaira Shopping. On the rooftop of the building was established an open concert hall which can accommodate about 10 000 standing people and 4 000 seated. The stage is called Domus Hall, and it as turned into a big attracting only adding to the keen interest of the Manaira Shopping Mall. The Domus Hall is frequented by performers from Brazil and other countries as well. It has had some of the most popular Brazilian performers sing and dance on the stage.

 

The Domus Hall has a structure of two levels. It is soundproof as well as air-conditioned. The sound equipment for the stage is top notch as the goal is to maintain the Domus Hall in prime modern condition. The structure is divided into two spaces. There are cabins for smaller private parties or individual visitors while the ground floor is meant for public events with more attending people.

 

Although The Manaira Shopping is the most popular establishment, Roberto Santiago owns another one as well called Mangeira which was opened in 2013. In his 80s, Roberto Santiago continues to provide people with entertainment centers and is planning more projects for the future years to come.
