Lacey And Larkin: Leading An Organization To Take Down One Of America’s Most Notorious Criminals

Lacey and Larkin have without a doubt played an incredible role in the conviction of Joe Arpaio. They were the reason why Arpaio faced a trial in the first place and was behind the pressure that was imposed on the judicial system to bring justice to Arpaio.

Lacey and Larkin were also behind the Lacey and Larkin Fonterra Fund, which is an organization that was built with the intention of working towards providing remedies to those who were affected by the wrongdoings of Joe Arpaio. Read more: Jim Larkin | Twitter and Michael Lacey | Twitter

The incident that sparked the efforts to convict Arpaio took place in Arizona, where Lacey and Larkin were writing an article about Arpaio and the wrongdoings that he was participating in.

They wanted the people to be informed, and be aware of the injustices that they were likely to face at the hands of this Sheriff of Maricopa County.

The article was also directed towards the Latin American community in Arizona who were the primary targets of Arpaio and the deeds that he was partaking in.

Soon after the article was published in the Phoenix New Times, Lacey and Larkin were both taken forcibly from their homes into holding facilities that weren’t authorized by any court of law. It was evident who had ordered the arrests, and it wasn’t a far line for Arpaio to cross considering what he had already been doing for most of his career. Even though Arpaio kept Lacey and Larkin in the holding facility for only twelve hours, it is still considered a grave offense in the eyes of the law.

This was the reason why Lacey and Larkin decided that they would file a suit against Arpaio for the wrongdoings that he had partaken in. They wanted to seek justice, not just for themselves, but for all those who have been wronged and those who have been falsely convicted at the hands of Arpaio.

They knew that they had to start something to spark the fire against Arpaio, and partaking in this measure was the only way in which they could see some justice.

The case against Arpaio took longer than it should have, and after five gruesome years of court experiences, Lacey and Larkin were awarded a settlement, not by Joe Arpaio, but by Maricopa County.

Lacey and Larkin knew that a court case was not going to be enough to convict Arpaio, which is why they decided to take the money and use it to start an organization that was going to fight against Arpaio.

The organization that was founded started getting an incredible amount of support within a short span of time, solely because of the awareness about Arpaio that was spread as a result of this. People from all over started coming forward in support of Lacey and Larkin, and to help them in the fight against Arpaio.

Even though the conviction, followed by the pardon was a set back in the progress that the organization has made, Lacey and Larkin hope to keep improving the organization so that one day, they can once and for all seek the justice that they have been working towards.

Sahm Adrangi On QuinStreet

In the world of business, it is well known that some companies are more honest than others. This is why value investors like Sahm Adrangi seek out and research these companies who are less than forthcoming with their business practices. When Sam Adrangi suspects that a business isn’t being honest with their investors or customers, he is not afraid to tell the world. When Sahm Adrangi discovers one of these companies, he and his company Kerrisdale Capital Management LLC not only do research, they sometimes short the stocks of the company that is in question. Shorting stocks involves a process that many investors deem to be too risky, but Sahm Adrangi has become an expert at it in his career. To short a stock, an investor borrows a certain amount of shares of a company that they see as very likely to drop drastically in price. As soon as they complete the purchase, the investor sells their stocks and waits for the price to become lower. At this point, the investor buys the same number of stocks that they bought initially and then return them to the lender. This makes it so that short-selling investors like Sahm Adrangi get to keep the difference in price, sometimes a considerable amount of money.

Sahm Adrangi has been doing this for years and has become quite good at it. His most recent target for shorting is the QuinStreet Inc. company. This company operates by driving traffic to the websites of their clients through online marketing. QuinStreet has been facing financial problems for several years, this is why Kerrisdale Capital was so surprised to see their stock quadruple in a very short period of time. After looking into it, Kerrisdale and Sahm Adrangi decided to start researching it more in depth and found that the rise was due to an increase in traffic that they had been directing to their affiliates. The traffic, unfortunately, appears to be completely bogus according to the research. Nearly all of the new revenue generated by QuinStreet came from only one client and is believed to be computer generated instead of genuine.

Clayton Hutson Goes on the Road with Halsey

Every time famous pop stars go on the road for the promotion of their crafts, their tours are usually received with the presence and support of throngs of fans. Trying to carry on with the building publicity can both be demanding as well as challenging, especially for the support staff that try to create the best live performances to the best of their abilities to back-up their star. And for Halsey, it means having to work with Clayton Hutson – a well-known tour manager.

 

 

Halsey was born as Ashley Nicolette Frangipane. She personifies the contemporary sphere of popular music, mostly because of her unusual beginnings towards stardom.

 

 

The music of Coldplay, Tupac, Nirvana, and Alanis Morrisette were the sounds Halsey heard while growing up, and she primarily gained public attention by personally releasing her own brand of music on the platforms of social medias. Her big break came in 2014 when she signed a contract with Astralwerks, where in a matter of just three years she made it to the top ten music charts with her song “Bad at Love.”

 

 

Her supporting performances are with Imagine Dragons and Kooks; but currently she is about to launch the final segment last portion of her Hopeless Fountain Kingdom World Tour, which was named the same as her latest album. The said tour will see Halsey through most parts of Asia and Latin America, along with a group of pop female entertainers.

 

 

Halsey’s tour manager, Clay Hutson, has always used a DiGiCo console whenever he is on a road tour. The latest DiGiCo console he used wasthe SD7 during the tour of Maxwell, including numerous SD8s on a cluster of once-in-a-lifetime gigs.

 

 

Hutson commented that he also has the first D5 when he went on the tour with Marilyn Manson about ten years previously. And taking into account the unpredictability of Manson, getting a brand new console was quite risky. However, the D5 turned out extremely well. Hutson enthused that DiGiCo had his back during that time, so he has been using the said console ever since.

 

 

And Clayton Hutson’s tour with Halsey is nothing much less like the preparation he makes for the other tours he had, and as always DiGiCo is by his side. Learn more: http://www.artistdirect.com/artist/clay-hutson/3218396

 

 

OSI Food Group: Going Strong With the Acquisition of Tyson Food Plant

OSI Industries is proud to be a global leader in the production of value-added protein products, including meat, poultry products, customized sausage, pork products and items such as bacon and hot dogs. The company employs 20,000 people around the world and also has entities in 17 countries around the globe. In those 17 countries, OSI Industries has more than 60 operations within those countries. These operations consist of everything from plants, to distribution centers to companies that have been acquired by OSI Food Group throughout the years.

While OSI Industries has a massive global reach, the company is incredibly passionate about making sure it stays true to its American roots. The company is extremely proud to have its headquarters in the United States and always is looking to grow foothold in America. In fact, one of the company’s top commitments is to consistently expand in America, not just for the sake of expansion, but the company has a strong commitment to growing so that it can bring about additional manufacturing jobs to the United States. As OSI expands, the volume of jobs expands, which is a win-win for both the United States and for OSI as a company.

In fact, OSI Industries recently grew its United States portfolio with the purchase of a former Tyson Food plant. The plant was located in Southside Chicago and Tyson made an announcement in late 2017 that they would be closing the plant. This would mean that hundreds of people would begin to be laid off until the plant was closed. However, OSI saw this as a very strong investment and eventually acquired the plant. This acquisition saved nearly one thousand jobs in the Chicago area as well as allowed OSI to continue its expansion plan in the United States, specifically in Northeastern America.

OSI Industries has also recently acquired the large entity of Baho Food. The company is Dutch based and although it is one of the most popular household brands, as well as are the entities it owns. However the company was seen by OSI Industries as an incredibly smart acquisition due to the fact that the company also has a huge volume of entities in Europe, where it also has a strong presence. That presence continues to globally expand and under the umbrella of OSI group that expansion will now be fueled to grow at an even more rapid level.

 

Who are Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey?

In looking at the Phoenix New Times’ article on Michael Lacey and Jim Larking speaking out in response to Donald Trump’s pardon of America’s, deemed worst and possibly most questionable sheriff, we can see both Lacey and Larkin’s view towards the matter at hand.

The article starts by talking of Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was convicted of criminal contempt in late July of 2007, for ignoring a federal judge’s order which stemmed from a 2007 racial profiling lawsuit.

It goes on to detail Arpaio in his extensive 24-year career as county sheriff, and his controversial aspect in being a vocal figure of support when Donald Trump started the birther movement against then President Obama, accusing him of being an unfit president due to his being born outside of the U.S.

The article also takes a stance on the matter pertaining to President Donald Trump’s pardon of Joe Arpaio and how it was a validated move by Judge Susan R. Bolton. At one point, Arpaio was responsible for the arrest of co-owners of the Phoenix New Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

This was most likely due to the fact that New Times covered, and exposed information which led to the demise of sheriff Arpaio and led to his prompt resignation.

In taking a closer look at Jim Larkin we can see that he is a native to Phoenix who dropped out of Arizona State University when, in 1972, he decided to team up with Michael Lacey, where the Phoenix New Times was born. This e-newsletter became a fledgling campus weekly paper, which came about as a response to the bias local media’s coverage of student antiwar protests.

Larkin became the head of the advertising side of things while Lacey became the executive editor. The paper grew due to its coverage in exploring a variety of social and political issues. It gained popularity as one of the U.S.’ premier alternative newspapers due to its aggressive yet holistic approach in coverage. In 1983, Phoenix New Times, purchased Westword, which was Denver’s news and arts weekly paper.

This expansion would ultimately end up becoming a conglomerate of 17 similarly motivated papers from the west coast of the U.S. to the east. These papers included that of LA Weekly, Miami New Times, and the Village Voice in New York City.

In taking a closer look at Michael Lacey we can see that he was the son of a construction worker, and grew up in Newark, N.J., before moving in the late 1960’s to attend Arizona State Univesity in the west. In retrospect, in 1970, Lacey was a college dropout, and was at this point already publishing the inaugural issue of Phoenix New Times, along with Jim Larkin in response to the local medias shrouded coverage of student antiwar protests.

Lacey became the executive editor of the paper, while his partner became the head of the advertising side. Soon after which came the massive expansion which was composed of the purchasing of Westword, a Denver weekly newsletter.

On October 18th, of 2007 Lacey and Larkin were arrested from their homes by the infamous discriminatory sheriff of Maricopa Country, in Arizona, which led to a public outcry in which all charges against Lacey and Larkin were dropped.

Vision of Jason Hope For The Future

Jason hope has lived in the state of Arizona nearly all of his life. As a native to the state, he eventually went to Arizona State University and received his degree in finance. He, later on, attended the same university for graduate school received his MBA. After completing his formal education, he has achieved great success as an entrepreneur and futurist. Today he spends most of his time pursuing philanthropic and entrepreneurial endeavors.Perhaps one of the most significant causes that he is undertaken in the last decade is in support of research in the field of antiaging. In 2010, merely eight years ago, he donated $500,000 to a research foundation known as the SENS foundation. This foundation is devoted towards the creation of new treatment protocols to treat the age-related decline in human beings.

By using organisms which show negligible senescence, or in other words insignificant decline in the physical capability of the organism, the organization has developed new treatment protocols that aim at the prevention of age-related diseases such as Alzheimer’s, and heart and lung disease.  The organization uses the funds that they received by Jason hope’s generous donation to create a new laboratory to study advanced glycation end products at Cambridge.Advanced glycation end products are molecules which are produced during the metabolism of glucose. Over time advanced glycation end products accumulate in human tissue. This accumulation causes the progressive decline in the elasticity of human skin and blood vessels. The new treatments that have been developed at this laboratory have been able to break these products down enhancing the longevity of human skin and blood vessels.

This is just one technique in an array of new approaches to anti-aging medicine. Jason hope has supported this organization due to their unique approach to the treatment of age-related diseases. In conventional medical society, treatments are typically developed to focus on the treatment of symptoms rather than the prevention of diseases. By focusing on the prevention of diseases before they ever occur not only are humans able to live longer lives but they are able to live healthier and happier lives as well.This is not the only area of interest for Jason hope. He has also supported the Internet of things as it becomes more and more viable. The interconnected nature of devices today will allow significant developments and solutions for the hospitality industry. Jason hope believes that this is which take advantage of these new technologies will prosper.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are All-Time American Heroes

Sheriff Joseph Arpaio is perhaps one of the most sickening and disgusting men I have ever read about. Honestly, when I read about his atrocious acts, I felt my stomach churning inside and wanted to vomit.

The first disgusting thing that this man is guilty of is racially discriminating against the Hispanic community. This can be seen in how he has treated the Maricopa County Police Department. Being the lead Sheriff, it is his right to deputize people and to hire and fire as he pleases.

Sheriff Joseph Arpaio created his own miniature army by deputizing citizens. This is not unheard of and is not unconstitutional. What is a crime though is doing it with the intention of racially discriminating against a certain people.

Sheriff Joseph Arpaio hired these deputies solely based on their views of Hispanics. If they were pro-Hispanic they did not get the job. If they thought Hispanics should be kicked out of his country, they got the job. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://releasefact.com/2017/09/jim-larkin-and-michael-lacey-continue-fight-for-latino-rights-after-pardoning-of-joe-arpaio/ and http://www.phillypurge.com/2017/06/23/jim-larkin-michael-lacey-make-the-list-of-civil-rights-protectors/

Once Sheriff Joseph Arpaio stacked Police Department to show its hatred for Hispanics, he began committing atrocious acts. Firstly, he allowed these racial bigots to have full control over the prison system. This led to Hispanic men being be an to death. This led to women in labor being denied medical attention.

Some women died because of this. Even more heartbreakingly, some children died from this. To make matters even worse, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio never allowed women to go to the funeral of their children.

In his prison system, which functions much more like a concentration camp, he would take Hispanic men out into the field and work then at the heights of an Arizona summer. This led to many Hispanic man suffering heat strokes and death. They easily could have been saved had Sheriff Joe Arpaio provided them water or shelter and shade at the appropriate times.

The last disgusting thing that Sheriff Joe Arpaio committed against the Hispanic community was purposefully burning their homes to the ground. Sheriff Joseph Arpaio was convinced that a local home in the Maricopa County was functioning as a go between for a local gang as a drug cartel. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Twitter

He ordered the home to be searched by a SWAT team. During the search, no drugs or weapons were overturned. However, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio was still convinced they were guilty. He broke down their walls searched inside them. During that procedure, the electrical outlets were struck and the home was set aflame.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two advocates for Hispanic rights. They run the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. They have reported on all of these misdeeds that are conducted by Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Because of that, he tried to arrest them and threatened them if they did not turn over the evidence they had on him. Luckily, these two men were able to get Sheriff Joe Arpaio arrested and charged with a violation of their first amendment rights. Let us hope that he faces considerable justice when his time comes.
