Lacey and Larking Talk About What Happened To Joe Arpaio

Even though there have been multiple presidential pardons that were considered unusual and controversial, the most recent one has in effect cause ripples throughout the nation because of its effect on the social discourse we live in. President Trump granted his first pardon to America’s strictest sheriff of Maricopa County, Arizona, Joe Araio.

While his reputation carries a sense of notoriety, his most vengeful acts all stem around the wrongful imprisonment of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the owners of Village Voice.

It was 10 years ago that Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit agents arrested Larkin, the CEO of Village Voice Media, and Lacey, the executive director.

On the same day of the arrest, they published an article that discussed a particular poll being conducted by the grand jury against Village voice media publication, which is the Phoenix New Times. Unknowingly of them, it was them that the grand jury had been investigating.

It could be said that the investigation was fueled by Arpaio’s frustration with the frequent coverage concerning his excessively aggressive law enforcement tactics he used from the moment he obtained his seat in office in 1992.

The infamous Tent City, along with various cases brought against women, immigrants and inmates had been the top of the conversations for different publications who decided to report on it. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

While the sheriff appeared before United States District Judge Murray Snow and which it was declared that Arpaio violated the constitutional rights of immigrants he detained, most of these situations were addressed out of the public’s sight or knowledge prior to 2011.

13 years ago, a lawsuit filed against him brought those case back to the surface in which case Arpaio was finally charged for violating the rights of immigrants, especially those of Latino background.

Nonetheless, the more he remained defiant against the charges while proceeding with profiling Latinos, the more attention the issue gained from reporters.

This is when Lacey and Larkin began investigating the circumstances in which case they exposed the dirty work of Arpaio to the nation. On multiple occasions, they wrote about instances he wears involved in which field confrontations between them and Arpio’s department.

As a result, these two men were arrested after being specifically targeted by a dedicated prosecution team that formed the grand jury reporting on Phoenix New Times .

After 24 days in prison, Lacey and Larkin were released and immediately filed a lawsuit against Arpaio the lawsuit, which would reveal additional information suggesting violations of malpractice and corruption, was quietly settled for $3.7 million.

About Jim Larkin

Jim Larking attended Arizona State University, but he dropped out in 1972 in order to join Michael Lacey and serve as the CEO for the Phoenix New Times.

This weekly campus publication existed to give voice to the ultraconservative voice of anti-war students who often protested. By focusing on the advertising side of the publication, Larkin was able to expand its’ circulation while growing the audience through expiration of various political and social issues in which allowed the paper to gain more prominence.

Larkin, with his partner, created the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund, which they funded with the $3.75 million they received from the Maricopa County lawsuit.

About Michael Lacey

As the executive editor of the Phoenix New Times who was born the son of a construction worker, Lacey dropped out of college in 1970 from Arizona State University in order to respond to local media coverage published about the antiwar protests that took place on campus.

After running the publication for four decades, Lacey and Larking sold their business to company executives in 2012. At that time, Village voice Media Holdings the company they so, had garnered 56 million online viewers, 9 million readers of their print publication, and had accumulated dozens of journalistic honors, which includes the Pulitzer Prize.

After the sale, Lacey now runs a website called Front Page Confidential, which aims to protect the first amendment and the right to free speech.

PSI Pay — Wearable Wallets

PSI Pay is an alternative form of payment offered by an illustrious institution in the United Kingdom. They have recently begun offering customers a new payment method. The method is a wearable ring made of ceramic that customers can use for contactless payments. They have a joint agreement with Kerv Wearables to manufacture the rings. If a customer wants to purchase an item in a retail location, they just need to place the ring closer than 1.6 inches to the merchant’s contactless card reader. The transaction will be processed instantly. PSI Pay has built their company by being open and innovative. They are always searching for new ways to make their customers’ lives easier.

In order for the rings to be approved for public use, MasterCard had to approve them. The rings had to be certifiably able to withstand all weather conditions, extreme wear, and they had to be digitally secure. PSI Pay had the rings constructed out of a ceramic outer shell that is stronger than steel, and the inner portion is a comfortable material that is hypoallergenic. All data streams to and from the device are encrypted, and the rings do not require a charger or battery. They receive power from the point of sale station when tiny electromagnetic streams are released during transactions.

The two models of payment wallets are the American and the European. In the American model, goods and services are exchanged for currency online. The transactions are deemed like for like. The possibility of charge-backs occurs because there is no intermediary, the payment is made directly on the card to the merchant. The transaction goes through directly end to end. In the European model the wallet may have multiple payment or load card options. There may be accounts linked to ATMs, merchants for payment, and stored values. When loading any currency in such a wallet, PSI Pay allows the owner is making a purchase of E money. This type of account is most similar to a bank account. A bank account will store the value of currency, and it can have various payment cards attached to it.

The main beneficiary of the funds is the operator. In the classic example, this would be the financial institution. Until the funds are needed for withdrawal, they will be in the financial institution as E money. In effect, by storing funds in a bank account, a customer is purchasing digital money.

Alex Pall Talks About What Makes The Chainsmokers Different From Other Musicians In Their Genre

Alex Pall is one-half of The Chainsmokers while Drew Taggart is the other half. They are a DJ and dance duo who have released three albums and a number of singles in the past few years. One of their last releases was “Closer” which they performed with Halsey and which went on to great international success. One of the things that Alex Pall says separates them from their contemporaries is that they have a hand in writing their own songs, something other in this genre don’t generally do. This makes their songs more personable and about themselves and their own lives which fans of The Chainsmokers appreciate.

When The Chainsmokers first formed as a duo Alex Pall was teamed up with someone besides Drew Taggart. That member left the duo which meant Alex Pall had to find another person to team up with. A person who was working for Alex Pall’s manager and told Drew Taggart about The Chainsmokers and that he would be a great fit. They ended up soon meeting and as Taggart puts it they were in love at first site. They started performing with each other every day and before too long they started finding a lot of success in New York City which spread outward from there.

Alex Pall says that he uses social media to check out who are fans of The Chainsmokers. He says that they have fans all over the world now, even in nations such as South Africa and the Philippines. Many of their fans are 16 to 25 but they also have a lot of fans over 30 and under 15. He said that when The Chainsmokers first started out they could just do a DJ set for college students. Now they need to work a lot harder in order to put on a great performance for a much more diverse audience when performing live.

Alex Pall says that they have now gone on world tours three times. They don’t want to keep doing the same things over and over so they push themselves musically to get better and go in different directions as time goes on.

What happens now? Kamil Idris on the state of IP Laws in 2018

In the age of Globalisation everything is super-fast and easy. This movement is touching everything and turning it into a whole new thing. Works for every important cause in the world. With too much information and ideas being available everywhere just one click ahead, it’s difficult to keep the generation of piracy in control. That’s where the Intellectual Property Right (IPR) is necessary. The former Director General of World Intellectual Property Organization Dr. Kamil Idris explained clearly how globalisation is affecting the way of our protection and definition of Intellectual Property Rights in one of his interviews. Let’s see how our Sudanese politician Dr. Kamil Idris enlightened us with his knowledge about globalisation and IPR.

Dr. Idris thinks that IRP is important for every Government to encourage the innovation and creativity of every nation. Ideas, Knowledge, Information are the revenue generator of the economy globally. But along with globalisation, everything is available everywhere. Hence the piracy is not an uncommon word anymore. Creative works are now widely available everywhere that no one has any control over the Copyright infringement.

For this digital age WIPO has taken 2 major big steps internationally. They are known as WIPO Copyright Treaty (WCT) and the WIPO Phonograms and Performances Treaty (WPPT). For these major programs a global harmony can be made by exchanging innovative ideas in order to find greater opportunities and coordination of enforcement procedure. With globalisation at it’s peak, Kamil Idris suggests it became easier in terms of science and technology. Data’s can be exchanged so easily that it helps with the new scientific invention to product development.

For communication being so easy, there’s one too many improved product and technology is available all over the world. As brilliant as it is to have so many new stuffs going on for the growth of economy, it can get overwhelming at times when there’s one too many applicants to patent their uniqueness. That’s why it is going to be globally processed. WIPO is providing training programs, workshops and seminars for both users of the system and the administrators of IP system globally

We like it or not we are all somehow affected by the violation of our Intellectual Property Rights. To develop a better status of a country globally, it is a must to have a legit IPR law. To value the new ideas and innovation and to sustain it, IPR can play a big role. Let’s not forget the part how IPR also helps global economic growth.

Paul Mampilly Says That Amazon Will Overtake Apple

Paul Mampilly has been right about investments so many times. He was right about the dotcom bubble and various other economic turns and twists. Therefore, you should listen when Paul Mampilly warns us about something. He is now warning us about Apple. Paul Mampilly is saying that in ten years from now, you’ll be laughing at yourself when you think about the way people used to wait in line for hours just to get Apple’s latest iPhone. Think of the way people laugh now at those who are still into Blackberry phones. It has become a thing of the past, and in ten years from now, Apple will no longer be the large behemoth that it is now. Follow Paul on Facebook.

Apple has always been an innovative company. They introduced products that changed the world. The three major products were the iPhone, the iPad, and the Macbook. However, those times have long passed. Apple has not released another major product in a long time. Apple is quickly becoming irrelevant, and if you are an investor, you should listen to what Paul Mampilly has to say about this.

Paul Mampilly is worth listening to. He studied at Fordham University. He worked for companies such as Deutsche Bank and Kinetics Asset Management. He won the Templeton Foundation award for turning fifty million dollars in $88 million.

Now, Paul Mampilly is saying that it is Amazon that is producing products that are changing the world, not Apple. Amazon’s Alexa is being used in many houses around the world. People are using Alexa to order stuff online, turn the heat on or off, turn the lights on, open doors, call their friends, and so much more. In a few years, everyone will have smart homes that use Alexa. Apple will be something that will be relegated to the dustbin of tech history.

Just like the iPhone changed the world around a decade ago, Alexa is changing the world now. It will change the way stores operate. Apple, on the other hand, is going nowhere. Paul Mampilly is of the opinion that this has to do with the fact that Steve Jobs is dead and no longer the head of Apple. When he was alive, he helped lead Apple in the right direction. However, Apple has become stagnant without his leadership and guidance. Follow Paul on twitter.com.

He believes that the key to immortality can be discovered in his lifetime, and he wanted to be credited as the one who discovered how it could be effectively performed. One of the beneficiaries of Jason Hope’s quest for immortality is the SENS Foundation. The SENS Foundation is a not for profit organization which conducts researches on how humans can combat aging. They have been researching about cell rejuvenation, and they believe that it would be the key to immortality.

Jason Hope was impressed with how they presented their discovery, and they stated that the advancement in the field of biotechnology could actually renew the cells. It is an essential part of the process of fighting off aging because, with healthier and new cells, someone can appear younger and healthier. One of their inspirations came from the immortal jellyfish, a marine creature that can revert to its younger form by rejuvenating its cells. They are mimicking this trait from the creature, hoping that humans could also be able to perform this outstanding ability.

The SENS Foundation is still doing further research to verify their claims about the promise of cell rejuvenation, and they keep on receiving funding thanks to Jason Hope. They also wanted to let the public know that once they created the perfect product that would fight aging, they will be presenting it to the public for them to use. Jason Hope is excited with all of the development being discovered by the SENS Foundation, and he could not wait for the day when immortality becomes possible.
