Larkin and Lacey on Joe Arpaio pardon

The days behind bars for Joe Arpaio are over. This is after President Donald Trump pardoned the controversial former sheriff convicted in July 2017 with criminal contempt. Arpaio is known for his dislike for the Latino community in Maricopa County, Arizona. Read more: Jim Larkin | Facebook and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

Together with the police officers under his leadership, he led a campaign to remove “illegal immigrants”. In his tenure, Arpaio engaged in racial prejudice and harassing Latinos in exchange for immigration services.

It is these cruel acts of Mr Arpaio that led two men Michael Lacey executive editor of Village Voice Media newspaper and Jim Larkin CEO of the same paper to expose him to the Public. The duo frequently wrote about the injustices that were being perpetrated against the Latino community by Arpaio and his department.

These articles were not received well by Arpaio who felt that Larkin and Lacey were standing in his way. In their effort to expose Arpaio, Lacey and Larkin published an article on the probe of a grand jury.

Later that day, Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit agents were in their homes in Phoenix, Arizona. The two were arrested and charged with disclosing details about a grand-jury. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

During their work on publishing that particular article Lacey and Larkin had no idea that that jury was investigating them. On October 2018 the day of their arrest, some men arrived in unlabeled SUVs which had Mexican license plates. They arrested Lacey and Larkin and kept in separate jails managed by Sheriff Arpaio.

Their arrest was criticized by the public as an illegal arrest and violation of human rights. The public was fed up by Arpaio multiple injustices. Previously Arpaio had been reported to courts of his action, but these reports didn’t see the light of day.

In 2011, judge Murray Snow of United States District had warned the sheriff against detaining the immigrants on the basis of mere suspicion and without credible evidence. A lawsuit was filed against Arpaio that showed the conditions faced by inmates in Tent City. It is on this Lawsuit that he was charged with violating the rights of the immigrant community.

The controversial arrest of Lacey and Larkin gained national coverage, and other newspapers released previous articles written by the duo. They were engaged in a lengthy legal battle that resulted to a ruling of a settlement of $3.7 million by Maricopa County.

Lacey and Larkin used the settlement money to form the Frontera fund an organization that supports the Latino and other communities to protect their rights. The organization has earned an excellent reputation in investigative reporting and additional coverage in feature writing and local events.

Larkin and Lacey are also in the process of launching a website called FrontPage Confidential that focuses on Free speech and First Amendment.

Lacey feels that Arpaio pardon comes with the president’s need to please his audience. Arpaio is a supporter of Trump and had endorsed his candidacy in January 2016 when most people did not accept him.

Ryan Seacrest and Weight Loss

When one thinks of Ryan Seacrest, they may not immediately connect the words ‘weight loss’ to the idea of him. He may be thought of one of the most pleasantly-looking show hosts on TV networks these days, but Ryan spent a few years of his youth as a chubby child.

From his love for nachos to spending time on the couch watching T.V., he had reasons to be the overweight child he was. It’s no surprise then that he takes his figure very seriously and as someone who is continuously in the spotlight, he may have to continue the fight against gaining weight for years to come.

After all, he has been the host of American Idol for years now and his fans know and love him, both for his skill, but admittedly for some, also for his looks.

He is so committed to eating right and staying fit that he has been known to drink (healthy) juices throughout the day. In fact, his assistants know that having a juice ready for him is one of the most important things that they can do to help him out.

While most people may enjoy a drink or two after work, Ryan Seacrest is someone who has decided to keep that calorie heavy substance out of his life. If there were one area where you could see his success in everything he strives to be, it could be in the weight loss and fitness.

Of course, his skills go beyond staying trim. Ryan is a powerhouse with fingers in several pies. From his clothing brand Distinction to his radio show On Air with Ryan, to his foundation (Ryan Seacrest Foundation), he goes above and beyond in creating and giving back.

In fact, the Ryan Seacrest Foundation is Ryan’s positive movement where families and children who need medical attention will have the chance to learn and explore the radio, media, and television industry. (Reference: Twitter)

Fortress Investment Group: The Direct Lending Venture That It Had Never Tried Before

There’s more to investment than just putting your money in different baskets, avoiding risk and waiting for your money to grow. If you’re not careful, you could risk all your money in unstructured investments and random betting. This is the reason that you have to get the advice or at least guidance of investment firms that have withstood the test of time. Fortress Investment Group LLC has been around in the business of investments since 1998, and so their financial insight couldn’t be better for any type of investment asset.

Dealstreet Asia Report

There’s so much happening in the fast-paced world of investment today, and it’s hard to keep up. Fortunately, we have an article about Fortress Investment Group found at Deal Street Asia to give us some perspective on what’s the latest both in the global investment world as well as with Fortress itself.

In a May 22, 2018 report written by the well-known finance writer Melissa Mittelman, we learned that Fortress Investment Group LLC is now opening itself to a whole new different level of investment asset, and it’s corporate lending. The dynamics of direct and corporate lending has always been a tough nut to crack, but with the core competencies of Fortress Investment Group in credit, asset-based work and diversified investments, it’s not hard to see Fortress going through with this new venture successfully.

It’s also added help that Fortress is now part and purchased by SoftBank Group Corp. With such collaboration and merging, it would be easy for Fortress to hit their target goals and gather enough trust and capital to pursue its ventures. Direct lending has already been on the radar of Fortress, but it has never planned out how it will go about it yet. Only when they have finally gathered the momentum and capital trust to do this did Fortress finally start to go about it in the realest sense.

The new investment program would not have to be that risky to begin with, if only for the fact that Fortress is already being helmed by new faces and leadership. For starters, Fortress has already put Josh Pack and Drew McKnight as the people behind the credit group unit of Fortress, with the strict supervision of Pete Briger, who is right now the firm’s credit head as well as Fortress co-CEO.

Fantastic Record of Success

This direct lending venture of Fortress would have to be a new path that follows the series of success of Fortress’ work history over the years. Investment performance has consistently been the strength of the company, and it is evident in its achievements and milestones since the firm was established in 1998. Fortress Seeks $2 Billion for Debut Direct Lending Pool

One highlight of such success that makes us excited of Fortress new venture in direct lending would be the one in 2002, when Fortress was able to launch the Drawbridge Special Opportunities Fund. Such success could easily be expected in the direct lending venture today of the firm. The level of dediciation of Fortress is still the same.

Endorsement by End Citizens United Benefit Candidates for 2018 Midterm Elections

There are less than six months left before Republicans and Democrats square-off with the 2018 midterm elections, and End Citizens United has positioned itself directly in the middle of one of the primary issues that voters will be considering – campaign finance reform. As the political action committee (PAC) continues to endorse candidates who have demonstrated an act of responsibility towards the transparency of campaign funds, those who have fought against it will have an upward battle.

Founded just three years ago, End Citizens United’s position on overturning the disastrous U.S. Supreme Court’s 2010 decision concerning campaign finance disclosure laws has only grown throughout the political spectrum. The PAC’s presence is nationally known and has received continued voters support as well as alliances with certain members of Congress. The PAC has supported candidates who are in favor of overturning the decision as well as completely rejecting the “dark money” that continues to flow through political campaigns.

There is a lot that is on the line for both Democrats and Republicans for the midterm elections. Many of the Republicans looking to be re-elected are going to have a hard time convincing their constituents why they have chosen not to get behind the issue of campaign finance reform. The top offenders have been identified as “Big Money 20,” and the public has seen their record through the extensive efforts by the PAC. The position of End Citizens United is to put everyone on the same playing field when it comes to campaign finances.

The grassroots efforts have provided advantages for politicians who support the cause. The national network of almost a half million donors who support the mission of the PAC will not go unnoticed once the midterm election begins. Many of those donors have contributed an average of $14, and the PAC is expected to exceed its $35 million forecast by midterm elections.

While there are still some politicians who refuse to acknowledge the powerful position that End Citizens United has within the 2018 midterm elections, there are a chosen standouts who are more than willing to put their political money where their mouth is. Those who refuse to accept dark money and support End Citizens United, include Republican Beto O’ Rourke, who is expected to unseat Ted Cruz. O’Rouke has raised an astounding $6.7 million for his campaign and refused to accept any PAC money, and Randy Bryce, who was expected to unseat Paul Ryan until his retirement announcement, has already raised $1.75 million. The two candidates represent a host of others who will go into the midterms more confident than their opponents.
