Sheriff Joe Arpaio Needs to Be Behind Bars

The Bible says that we should not be ashamed of the gospel because the gospel is the only thing that can save mankind. Often when people hear this statement they think Christians are only advocating for belief and doctrine. However, I say unto you that the gospel is a summation of two different things.

Firstly it is about loving God and secondly it is about loving man. When you look in the Old Testament the two things that are mentioned the most are idolatry and justice. God was thoroughly interested in finding justice for those who are oppressed and subjected to tyrannical rule.

Today, illegal immigrants are feeling the effects of oppression and tyranny. In Mexico they deal with drug lords and politicians who seek to use them for their own ends.

When they escape that country and come to the United States of America they find that they are unable to give work and they are subjected to low daily pay which goes underneath the table and robs them of proper funds.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have a way to make this evil stop. These two men are activists for immigration reform and they run the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Oddly enough, this nonprofit came into existence when Sheriff Joseph Arpaio even legally trampled on the rights of these two men. Ever since that time, this nonprofit has sought to give Hispanics and Latinos the rights of everyday Americans and fight for their ability to speak freely.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin encourage America to approach immigration reform in a holistic and systematic manner. They believe that America should come up with a way to welcome immigrants into this country, providing them the education and skills needed to gain an occupation, and then followed them into work so they can be productive citizens.

While Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been advocating for this systematic plan, Sheriff Joseph Arpaio has come out of the shadows to oppose this great change.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have dealt with Sheriff Joseph Arpaio for quite some time. They have reported on the evil deeds he has done to Hispanics and Latinos.

The first evil that Sheriff Joseph Arpaio committed to the Hispanic community was by stacking the Maricopa County Police Department toward a racial bias. To keep it simple, all officers were fired who believe in equality and new officers were hired as long as the racial biases could be confirmed.

The second evil that Sheriff Joseph Arpaio committed to the Hispanics was by enacting punishment upon them even though they were not found guilty of crimes. It is not unheard of for Sheriff Joe Arpaio to allow Hispanic men to be beaten during arrest, homes to be set on fire, and women illegally detained.

There are many more evils that I could share the Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have done a very good job in writing on these issues in order to touch America’s compassionate hear.

Eric Lefkofsky: Being Involved in Oncology

Eric Lefkofsky is an active businessman and entrepreneur who focused in the field of health and medicine technology. He founded a huge number of companies and startups, with Tempus being one of them. He decided to create Tempe because of his will to help oncologists around the world to understand cancer and to gain new information about the disease. The platform that he created will be used as an avenue for the scientists to share some information that can be used interchangeably by their colleagues. Another reason why he created Tempus is that of his will to create a technology that can hold a huge number of patient data and other information related to their health.

Since its establishment, Tempus has gained the attention of the media because of the products and services that they offer. Oncologists around the globe are praising the project initiated by Tempus which would allow them to access a vast network of systems that would be useful in thinking for new ways on how to treat their patients. They also created some tools that can be used by the oncologists to save more lives, especially those who are suffering from cancer and its side effects. The project being developed by Tempus also allows the system to accept information about the patient’s molecular data, and oncologists are using it because of its advantage in thinking about their next move.

The secret behind the success of the project from Tempus is from the overpowered software that was created under the supervision of Eric Lefkofsky. The project is actively compiling a huge number of data that can help scientists understand the disease further. It is also responsible for compiling all of the known information about cancer since the dawn of its discovery. By using the new project from Tempus, oncologists can provide millions of practicing physicians the right to ask their patients about how they wanted to customize their cancer treatment. The scientific community thanked Eric Lefkofsky because of his contribution to its improvement. They are hoping that his community would be creating more similar products in the future that would improve everyone’s quality of life.

Anthony Petrello Leading The Way In Helping The Community

In most companies, social responsibility is an integral part of their organizational culture. These companies never shy away from helping the community whenever there is a need. Top executives of these companies are the driving forces behind the positive contributions the companies make towards the community. Without such leaders, the organizations that previously prioritized social responsibility and giving back to the community would take a back seat on these activities.

An example of such companies and leaders include the Nabors industries and their chief executive officer, President and board Chairman Anthony Petrello. In an article titled “ How Tony Petrello Helped Houston With Hurricane Harvey Relief”, The Nabors industry and their Chief executive officer stand out as very caring towards the community and do not only focus on profit-making as most companies do.

The Hurricane Harvey left many people homeless after destroying homes and flooding streets. Supplies were scares and the demand for food became widespread in the region. Petrello’s present luxurious life has not overshadowed his humble origins. He still connects with the needs of the less fortunate and the victims of various disasters such as the Hurricane Harvey. He mobilized his team to reach out to everybody in need of help because of the disaster. People were able to see the Petrello who is famous for his philanthropic activities with the Neurological research institute at Texas children’s hospital and the endowment prize at Yale University. As the highest paid CEO, Petrello has earned his respect among his peers and continues to lead the way for other top executives to follow.

Philanthropic activities in Houston would be incomplete without the mention of Tony Petrello. Unlike other top executive officers, Petrello takes matters of social responsibility very seriously and practices them more often than most officers in his cadre. Petrello whose current position involves leading the largest Geothermal and natural gas drilling company in the world knows too well, what constitutes an effective social responsibility. Petrello holds J.D degree from Harvard and BS and MS degrees in Mathematics from Yale universities. He began his career in 1979 at Baker & McKenzie law firm where he rose to the rank of a managing partner in 1986. He joined Nabors industries in 1991 as the Chief Operating Officer, rising to the post of the President in 1992. He became the chairperson of the company in 2012, a post he currently holds.

Lacey and Larkin have committed the funds from their court settlement to funding immigrant’s rights organization in Arizona. The two were arrested in 2007 for exposing a crucial case on the proceedings of a grand jury.

Using the $3.75 million given to them as settlement, the group is committed to defending and asserting human rights throughout their service in the United States.

Through the leadership of Lacey and Larkin, Frontera Fund has managed to help groups advocating on promoting civil, human and migrants rights. They advocate for the freedom of speech of the migrant’s right.

A story about the subpoena was published by Lacey and Larkin, October 18, 2007. They attempted to meet the judge. On the same day in the evening, Sheriff’s wearing plain clothes came to arrest them in their houses.

They were handcuffed and put in dark SUVs with tinted windows and driven to jail. The charges were dropped five days later partly due to public outcry. In 1970, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin took over an ASU renegade newspaper and turned it into an award-winning, investigative paper.

The paper distributed free copies to stores and in street racks. Lacey had also received a $2 million gift. The donation is alleged to be coming from the lawsuit settlement with Maricopa County.

An Entrepreneur We Can Learn From: Brian Bonar

I think it is so interesting to see how entrepreneur’s take their unique history and can use it as an asset. For so many of us, it seems that life includes bits and pieces that could be seen as fragmented or random.

But successful business men and woman, it seems, can take these seemingly random pieces and put them together to form one cohesive picture. This is the case with Brian Bonar, an entrepreneur that I recently read an article about. The article went into details about Bonar’s journey as an entrepreneur, and I found myself fascinated by the way he managed to use his history as an asset for business ventures.

For example, Brian Bonar has a passion for design and detail. I looked into it and found that he has a background in mechanical engineering, so it made sense to me that he is interested in product design and the fine details of his products.

I saw that has worked in fields that related to procurement of products through outsourcing. He even started a company that was the first to design and sell an SCSI based printer. He is taking his skills with design, and applying them to business models based around his passion for design. I found this very inspiring.

His experience as an entrepreneur also combines financial skills, knowledge about how systems and businesses work as a whole, and a keen sense of leadership. Learn more about Brian Bonar: http://bitsylink.com/2015/07/28/all-about-brian-bonar-leader-and-executive/

Recently, he was a recipient of the “Cambridge Who’s Who Executive of The Year in Finance” award, which is based on leadership, academics, and accomplishments. His abilities as an executive have not gone unnoticed.

I found it interesting that the company Brian Bonar founded, Dalrada Financial Corporation, is using Bonar’s background in finance and management. Bonar seems to be taking all of his knowledge, skills and abilities, and wrapping them up into a product that can help others. The article stated that, “Dalrada Financial Corporation gives clients a unique variety of employee programs that help increase the efficiency of business”.

As a businessman who has experience, Bonar is qualified to help other businesses examine their systems and processes as a whole. Not everyone can use a wide lens that encompasses so many aspects of business. It seems that Bonar has this ability.

Brian Bonar started out working for IBM, and held a position that gave him responsibility over ordering the parts for the motherboards that IBM was putting into computers. Bonar holds a masters in Mechanical Engineering, and during his time at IBM he functioned as a manager, giving him the first foundation blocks in what would become a long history of leadership roles.

Bonar went on to work for several other companies and then set out as an entrepreneur. He founded the Dalrada company, as well as several others.

Hence Hussain Sajwani is planning for its initial public offering of shares. The London Stock Exchange is being considered as its possible IPO venue.

This is not all. Hussain Sajwani is planning to go ahead with more business deals with the Trump Organization. In fact, the Hussain Sajwani family is on friendly terms with the Trumps. They even celebrated the New Year Eve together.

This way, their relationship has gone beyond professional to being personal. The Trump brand has moved up, and Hussain Sajwani would like to take advantage of that.
