The Frontera Fund Begins with the Hardships of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

The Frontera Fund is a philanthropic source that provides funding to organizations that stand up for the rights of marginalized people. Organizations that stand up for the rights of immigrants, migrants and minorities are the recipients of this fund. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin created this financial source back in 2013 after they were awarded a whopping $3.7 million dollars.

Lacey and Larkin received this funding as the result of being wrongfully arrested by a corrupt Arizona sheriff named Arpaio. Joe Arpaio had dubbed himself America’s toughest sheriff and he was certainly a hard-nosed sheriff who wanted to arrest Lacey and Larkin for trumped up charges.

Larkin and Lacey are the co-owners of the Phoenix New Times. These two men featured stories about Arpaio and his corrupt practices back in 2012. When the stories ran, Arpaio was upset by the stories. The two had exposed Sheriff Arpaio’s tactics for harassing Mexican people and they also exposed his political posturing.

The two men reported on how the sheriff ran a corrupt jail that was in poor condition, the mistreatment of inmates and about Arpaio’s unconstitutional harassment of Latino prisoners. Eventually, Sheriff Arpaio had the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office to issue subpoenas against Larkin and Lacey.

The subpoenas were created to get information about the writers, editors and even the subscribers of this paper. They also wanted to gather information about the personal browsing history of the paper’s subscribers and their IP addresses. Clearly, Sheriff Apraio wanted to do more than just stop what he believed a bad story. He wanted to secure personal and private information from people he had not right to harass.

Lacey and Larkin were held in jail for at least 24 hours before they were released. There was a huge national outcry over the matter. Once the men were out of jail, their charges were dropped. However, they did take this matter to court and in 2012 they won the settlement.

Larkin and Lacey’s Frontera Fund was created, and it now serves the people of Arizona and it also helps people all over the U.S. Larkin and Lacey both want to help the Latino community since they experience so much harassment and mistreatment at the hands of corrupt members of the law enforcement community.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Wish to Stop a Senate Campaign

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the co-founders of The Frontera Fund, a fundraising organization that assists the Hispanic residents of Arizona. The organization was created after Lacey and Larkin were victimized by sheriff Joe Arpaio, who had also made victims out of every immigrant or minority he interacted with.

 

The 85 year old Arpaio first gained notoriety when he created Tent City in 1992. Arpaio proclaimed the facility a concentration camp, but the pretense for it creation was to combat over populated prisons.

 

Arpaio’s reign of terror continued for over 2 decades. In 2007, Lacey and Larkin had an unexpected run-in with Arpaio. The Phoenix New Times, which was owned by Lacey and Larkin, was publishing content relating to the illegal activities of Arpaio. When Arpaio got wind of of the newspaper’s actions, he ordered his police force to raid the homes of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. This lead to Lacey and Larkin being awarded almost 4 million dollars. With the funds from the lawsuit, they created The Frontera Fund.

 

The Frontera Fund wasn’t the only positive thing to come from the settlement, of course. The duo sold their old newspaper and soon started another. Front Page Confidential publishes content not only pertaining to Joe Arpaio’s activities but also other politicians like him. The newspaper’s stories consist of civil rights issues, human rights issues, corrupt politicians and general issues that they wish to inform voters about.

 

By using these two organizations, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin intend to stop Arpaio in his tracks in his bid to gain a Senate seat on Capital Hill.

 

Contraband Cell Phones Causes Threats In Incarceration Environments

All across the nation, many correctional facilities and prisons are seeing a widespread use of illegal cell phone activities and other issues. By having access to contraband cell phones an inmate can organize drug deals, make threats, and various other crimes including the one I’m about to discuss.

 

A correctional officer named Robert Johnson had worked in his position for fifteen years at the Lee Correctional Institution located in South Carolina. He oversees the incoming packages that enter the building and confiscates any package that is deemed as contraband at his particular correctional facility. One day, Robert had intercepted quite a large package and its contents were filled with approximately $50,000 worth of gang related contraband. Finding illegal items hidden in packages was the norm for Robert as well as for incarceration environments everywhere in the United States.

 

Thinking nothing of his recent contraband finding, Robert Johnson woke up one morning around 5:30 a.m. to get ready for work. He heard a loud bang of someone kicking down his front door. The man that had broken into his home was hired by an inmate that used a contraband cell phone and ordered him to kill Mr. Johnson. After a short struggle, the thug had shot him six times in the stomach and chest from roughly six feet away. Robert luckily survived his ordeal and now works for Securus Technologies as a consultant. Securus Technologies is the nation’s leader for provided technology solutions to thousands of civil and law enforcement agencies. The company is now providing facilities with their newest innovation, the Wireless Containment System.

 

Securus’s Wireless Containment System is basically a cell phone network that can detect calls made from inmates with their unauthorized cell phones and quickly block it. It works both ways for incoming and outgoing calls and only emergency 911 calls will be allowed. The system has a host of permitted phone numbers that were logged in, all calls that were unauthorized will be automatically dropped. The company revealed that more than 1.7 million calls from inmates located across the United States were successfully blocked. Robert Johnson continues his mission to put an end to contraband cell phones and awaken the U.S. government of its prevalent dangers, he strongly feels that Securus Technologies can do just that.

Jordan Lindsey: Profiting from Patterns

Anyone can become a forex millionaire. That is if they can yield a consistent 7 percent return monthly, and compound the interest for ten years. Such a stellar result would equate to a 100 percent annualized return based on the math. In an age when a one year CD does not typically yield a 1 percent return, such a claim may seem far-fetched. Anyone who is familiar with the types of results which are possible trading forex can attest that such astronomical returns are indeed achievable.

Mr. Jordan Lindsey has been encouraging forex traders for years. He is well familiar with the possibilities of the forex market to change a person’s life once he or she learns the correct methodology. Trading is not gambling there is a science and an art to it. It is inadvisable that anyone dabbles in the forex market without first equipping themselves with the necessary knowledge.

Key to this knowledge base is the field of technical analysis. Technical analysis is the field which most traders depend on to predict future prices. Thus making it possible to execute informed trading decisions. Price charts and the patterns they present are the fundamental tools of this discipline. Chart patterns are dependable, which is what makes technical analysis worthwhile. Some examples of the statistical performance of these charts are as follows:

Ascending Triangle 73% reliable

Channel Up 72% reliable

Channel Down 74% reliable

Descending Triangle 71% reliable

Double Bottom 80% reliable

These are, but a few of the chart patterns commonly exploited in forex trading. None are 100 percent accurate. However, each pattern represents a situation where traders have an edge in predicting the future moves in the market. To achieve Jordan Lindsey’s 7 percent monthly return, traders must exploit reliable chart patterns which give them an edge.

A plan with positive expectancy is what you need to become a professional forex trader. Knowing chart patterns and their probabilities will give you the confidence to execute your trade plan and adhere to it. As Jordan Lindsey has said, ideas are not what makes people wealthy. It is execution and persistence. Profitable traders are traders who manage to adhere to their plans while keeping their dream alive.

Elysium—a New Health Company

Elysium Health was founded in 2014 by Dr. Leonard Guarente, the director of the Glenn Center for Biology of Aging Research at MIT. During his career, Dr. Guarente has conducted significant research on molecular and genetic causes of aging.

Basis is a daily supplement created by Elysium Health. The supplement works to increase the levels of the coenzyme NAD+ in our cells. NAD+ is essential in many cellular processes like DNA protection and energy creation. As we age, our levels of NAD+ decline and those functions break down. So, by increasing NAD+ levels, Basis supports those cellular functions and our cellular health as a result.

A clinical trial was conducted in 2016 to prove the efficacy of Basis. 120 people were divided into three equal groups, with one taking the recommended dose, another taking double the recommended dose, and the third group taking a placebo. The group which took the recommended dose of Basis saw their NAD+ levels increase by an average of 40 percent over the course of several weeks. The results of the study were published in the online scientific journal npj: Aging and Mechanisms of Disease.

Basis is available for purchase through the Elysium Health’s website. The supplement comes in jars, with each jar containing 60 capsules of Basis. The daily recommended dose of Basis is two capsules, so each jar has a 30-day supply of the supplement. A single jar costs $60. A monthly subscription to Basis costs $50 per month and a prepaid six-month subscription brings to cost to an even lower $45 per jar.

More information on Elysium Health, the company’s team, and the science behind Basis can be found on Elysium’s website.

Volcanic Filtered and Eco-Friendly Waiakea Water

A few decades ago people really didn’t even consider purchasing bottles water. Why buy something in a bottle that you could just get from your sink? It didn’t make much sense. Unless you lived in an area where your faucet water wasn’t safe to consume this just wasn’t a common purchase to make. Over the past two decades an increase in the popularity of bottled water has surged. People purchase bottled water for all types of reasons. Standing in front of a water cooler at a convenience store will boast dozens of options.

What makes one brand of water better than another? Is it the awesome packaging? Is it the price? Is it because it is from a region that just seems like a desirable place to bottle water? Each brand of bottled water needs to come up with a distinguishing factor to make it stand out above the competition.

Waiakea Water is a rather new to the market brand of bottled water. Waiakea Water was established in 2012 and has been making waves in the water industry scene since its launch. One amazing fact about Waiakea Water is that it is commonly dubbed as Hawaii volcanic water. What exactly makes it volcanic water? Waiakea Water is filtered through a process in which it runs 14,000 feet down the Mauna Loa volcano through porous volcanic rock. This process actually creates a pH level anywhere from 7.6 to 8.2. This makes Waiakea Water one of the most natural alkaline waters available for purchase. There are many health benefits to drinking alkaline water. This form of filtration infuses the water with many minerals including magnesium and calcium.

The Waiakea Water bottle is also a rather notable water bottle. The bottle that they have created is the world’s first fully degradable water bottle which makes it completely eco-friendly. In addition to this biodegradable bottle Waiakea Water also is certified Carbon Neutral. They use only low emission vehicles when delivering their product. Waiakea Water also donates three percent of their sales to local community programs and they donate one liter of drinking water to Malawi for every liter of water that a consumer purchases. Waiakea Water is a company that wants to make a positive impact on the World by giving back, creating a low carbon foot print and providing a quality and unique product.

One thing Ted Bauman has vehemently insisted on is that Bitcoin is a poor investment choice. Not only is it hard to invest in something that doesn’t exist in real life, but it makes things worse for people who want to actually make money. They will not be able to use the cryptocurrency in the same way they would use other types of money. In fact, it would just not even be as fast as a credit card transaction if they wanted to be able to make a difference in the money they were using.

Cryptocurrency has no future as a currency. People who are trying to invest their money will soon realize the currency portion won’t work. It is hard for others to grasp because they know they can use it online, but it takes much longer to use it in a brick and mortar setting. It can take almost an hour to complete a transaction. In the busy world that is all around people, it would not make sense to have to wait an hour to get the currency they need or to pay for the things they can use.
