Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

Formed by the two co-founders, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the Frontera Fund is came about from a $3.75 million settlement resulting from the pair’s unjust incarceration by the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The Frontera Fund exists to help promote and support various organizations that concentrate on issues regarding migration, civil, and human rights. This includes topics having to do with low wage households and the issues that minorities face in the country today, particularly immigrants hailing from Mexico.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who was the sheriff working the case against the two journalist founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media, has since been kicked out of the force due to the abuse of his title. A recent article that surfaced on the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund website details the feats of Bazta Arpaio, who was one of the main grassroot coalitions responsible for getting Joe Arpaio off the force.

In recent news on the Arpaio Archives forefront, Bazta Arpaio has been awarded the Maclovio Barraza Award for leadership. The award has been given to the group July 10th at the esteemed 2017 National Council for La Raza (NCLR) Conference.

The chair of the NCLR Board of Directors, Renata Soto, has much to say on the positive impact that the Bazta Arpaio coalition has had on its community. She went on to explain that they were the ones who put the most pressure on Joe Arpaio, when he was still part of the police force in Maricopa County.

They were the ones who spoke the loudest about their demands that he either change his crooked practices or step down from his position as sheriff and leave the force.

Bazta Arpaio did not back down when Arpaio continued to try and instill fear in those who opposed him and it was they who took to the streets to protest the ex-sheriff the strongest.

It’s true that it was Bazta Arpaio who led the rallies, walk-outs, ran a voting campaign in Maricopa County, and held a strong social media presence on the matter throughout it all. The group was nothing short of determined to embody the change that they were hoping would reflect in their community and it showed.

Their name, Bazta Arpaio, which translates as a combination of “enough” with the AZ shortening of Arizona, really kept their eyes on the prize and the name reflected their intention until the goal was achieved.

The Bazta Arpaio was primarily led by mothers who had been previously deported, as well as those who were themselves undocumented and by a number of minorities in the community who shared a sense of kinship for the cause.

The exec. director of the Center for Neighborhood Leadership, Viridiana Hernandez, thanked all those who were involved in the movement in her community, including hard workers and families who had been affected by Arpaio’s actions, either directly or indirectly. The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund has supported the Bazta Arpaio’s efforts with pride since the very beginning.

Jeremy Goldstein & the New York State Bar Association

The New York State Bar Association is one of the largest associations of lawyers in the world. Founded in 1876, it is now staffed by 72,000 members. It’s also the largest voluntary state bar association in the United States. It’s safe to say that the New York State Bar Association is the most advanced lawyer association in the country.

A part of the New State Bar is the Lawyer Referral and Information Service (LRIS). The LRIS’s primary mission is helping New York residents get in touch with qualified, practicing lawyers in or near their community. Last year, the LRIS trained its staff to handle more than 10,000 phones calls a month.

Additionally, the LRIS launched a new online portal. The new online service is at https://nysbalris.legal.io and is available 24 hours a day. This new service aims to alleviate pressure when searching for a lawyer. Facts show that people tend to seek legal help during times of stress. If preferred, the phone service is still an option.

The new online service works nearly the same as calling the LRIS. First, a confidential questionnaire describing the legal matter gets filled out. Next, a State Bar staff member matches the questionnaire with a local, practicing attorney.

One attorney that high-profile residents may get matched with is Jeremy Goldstein. Jeremy Goldstein is a successful executive compensation and corporate governance lawyer practicing at his boutique law firm, Jeremy L. Goldstein & Associates. He’s well qualified and handles many of his firm’s largest cases.

Jeremy Goldstein has three university degrees from three universities: the New York University School of Law, the University of Chicago, and Cornell University. Mr. Goldstein also writes and speaks on matters involving corporate governance and executive compensation.

How Kate Hudson Built an Empire with Fabletics

When Kate Hudson started the Fabletics brand three years ago she made several smart decisions. She decided to position the athletic wear as an aspirational product made of high quality and paired this with strong customer service. The Fabletics model has proven to be a winning combination as the company is now valued at over $250 million over the ensuing three years. Another winning factor that has worked in favor of the brand is their implementation of reverse showrooming.

 

Reverse showrooming allows the brand to reach customers online and live. When customers visit a Fabletics pop-up concept store, or one of their growing number of bricks and mortar locations, they are likely already a member, and if they are not, chances are at about 20% that they will have signed up for membership before leaving the store. Fabletics encourages browsing, both online and live, by both its members and those who are interested in the brand but have not yet joined. They have gotten the mix between live and online buying opportunities at a great balance that has been very successful for the brand.

 

The brand has opened almost 20 stores and plans to continue this path of providing its members the option of either an online shopping experience, one that it is live, or a combination of the two. The shops and locally hosted events have given the brand a keen insight into what it is that their customers want on a local level. The brand is very dialed into providing an enjoyable experience for its buyers while giving them the products that they want.

 

Fabletics has created a strong niche in the athleisure and their clothing is more than a workout option. Gym clothes have certainly evolved and the most desirable brands provide items that will take you from a fitness class to lunch with a friend or running errands and picking up the kids from school.

 

With so many options offered by Fabletics, how is it possible to narrow down the collection to a few pieces that work for the individual? The brand has handily created an online quiz that will give great insight into which pieces are best for your lifestyle and body type.

 

Fabletics has blended the membership and subscription model with a live shopping experience to create a business model that has been extremely successful. All signs point to continued success for this unique brand!

Education Is Only One Aspect of the Good Works of Betsy DeVos

In February 2017, I was pleased to see Betsy DeVos take up what is sure to become the role she is remembered for as the Secretary of Education in the Administration of President Donald Trump. Mrs. DeVos was already a well known education reformer before taking up her role in the federal government that has seen he bringing new ideas and direction to the Education sector. Betsy DeVos is no stranger to political life after serving as the Chair of the Republican Party of Michigan on two separate occasions; Betsy DeVos has always moved in political circles and I remember the pride the people of Michigan felt when she was asked by then President George W. Bush to take up a seat on the board of the Kennedy Center for the Arts.

Education has been a major part of the life of this member of the Prince industrial family since her birth as her mother was a public school teacher who made sure Betsy always understood the problems facing less well off children in the state of Michigan and across the nation. I am pleased to report Mrs. DeVos has spent much of her adult life acting as an advocate for children who are in need of the assistance of the Michigan public school system and has grown in importance across the state after her charter school system was adopted by the city of Detroit. What has impressed me the most about the way Betsy DeVos has handled her work in helping to establish the Detroit Charter School program is the fact she does not see the implementation of the program as the end of her work and has expressed her wish to assist the program in continuing to grow and thrive in the city. Looking back at the results achieved by the students in Detroit’s charter school program shows they are already ahead of those in the traditional public school system, a fact that shows the reform agenda of the Calvin College graduate is already reaping rewards for children across the state. Check her website for more info at betsydevos.com.

Betsy DeVos and her husband Dick have worked together on a number of projects she hopes will bring success to the nation in the future, particularly in terms of education where the establishment of the West Michigan Aviation Academy is showing how successful a charter school can be for students of all socioeconomic backgrounds. I believe Betsy DeVos has shown great leadership in a number of areas of philanthropy, including her support of the Kennedy Center for the Arts and the ArtPrize annual festival in Grand Rapids, Michigan; I agree with Mrs. DeVos in her belief that a well rounded community should see success in all areas from education to the arts and the economic success of the region.

Nobody Feels Ill At The Copa Star

I’m sure many of us had loved ones in the hospital and had worried about their well being. Finding a quality hospital is especially difficult in Brazil since public hospitals have a reputation for overcrowding and neglect. Fortunately, for the well off, there are a new luxury hospitals in Rio de Janeiro that rivals even first world countries. Other similar hospitals are planned to open up in Brasilia and Sao Paulo.

Copa Star is a newly built luxury hospital that is facing the famous Copacabana beach. This hospital is at the corner of Figueiredo de Magalhães street, just feet away from world class hotels or restaurants. Visiting tourists will probably mistake this building for being a five-star hotel.

The hotel features some of the most modern medical equipment found in Brazil. There are rooms dedicated to surgeries, neurosurgery, integrated magnetic resonance equipment, robotic surgical aids, and telemedicine. This sort of treatment is unlike anywhere else in Brazil. Now instead of flying to Sao Paulo for superior medicine, the opposite will now take place.

Not only is the medical equipment brand new, the hospital is also connected with modern Internet of Things technology. Guests will be issued iPads so that they can control room temperature, bed adjustment setting, lighting, and other options. The internal network will also be used so that patients may directly contact their nurse or doctor. The network will also be convenient for the doctor since electronic medical records are easily accessible. Visit the site Rede D’Or for more info.

The staff will be held to a much higher standard than other Latin American hospitals. Before allowed to enter the workplace, team members are sent through a two-week intensive boot camp. All members of the staff will be trained how to handle emergency situations through simulated events. Stretchers and life-sized dolls will be used in some of the simulations. There are also strict rules put in place for permitted hairstyles, clothing, jewelry and makeup.

Patients will not be complaining about bland food since the restaurant is managed by world-class chefs. This kitchen is even considered to some of the best dinings in town, even though it is just for hospital patients.

The artwork was picked to help ring the hallways and rooms together with earthy tones. Japan’s Yakuta Toyota was given the task to provide artwork that will be hung in all rooms and hallways. The lobby is like a fancy hotel with a grand piano and fine leather sofas.

Each room is especially spacious since they were designed to house large groups of family members. Patients and their visitors will have complete privacy since the walls include sound dampening foam. Although they include climate control sytems, rooms are naturally cooled with natural air thanks to their ventillation sytem. Learn more on sidetech.com
