The Stand to Preserve Human Rights

Human Rights

Humanity is at a place where it has to redefine itself. From Children’s rights being violated to having to confirm to ourselves that lives do matter through the establishment of groups like Black lives Matters. We seem to be at a crossroad. But there is always hope, which is brought in by groups like The Advocates for Human Rights. This group offers free legal services to people who do not earn much.

Their services are offered in Minnesota, North Dakota and also South Dakota. They offer assistance to people detained by the immigration authority.

They defend women rights and much more. This group was started in 1984 and its executive director is Ms. Robin Phillip. Some group funds such as the Larkin and Lacey Frontera fund have come into place, to assist groups that are fighting for human rights.

About the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

This fund was started by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who are journalists by profession. Michael and Jim are known as the founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media. The two friends and colleagues have put into good use the money arising from their arrest by funding migrant rights organizations.

They received a settlement of $3.75 million in 2007. The Larkin & Lacey Frontera fund will be assisting groups that fight for human, civil and migrants’ rights. They will also be supporting groups that fight for the right of speech in Arizona. Their contribution will go a long way in giving a much-desired boost to these groups.

The fund is closely associated with a group known as the Border Angels, which is a non-profit charity group. The group is based in San-Diego and was founded in 1986 by Enrique Morones. The group is involved in immigration, where they fight for various reforms and try to curb immigrants’ deaths as they cross the border. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/relevant-links/

They seek to restore justice and do away with the false believe that people have about the immigrants who move to the U.S.A. through the border. So through funds such as the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund, they receive not only moral support but also financial support.

Final Note

The groups arising to fight for human rights are increasing daily. Therefore it takes the emergence of fund groups such as the Larkin & Lacey Frontera to come in and through their funding programs, impact the society.

How Arthur Becker Rose to the Top as an Entrepreneur

Arthur Becker has become a stalwart presence in New York City thanks to his work as a Managing Partner at Madison Partners, LLC. Madison Partners is quickly becoming one of our favorite investment firms to watch out for. Madison Partners is focused on two primary industries: real estate as well as bio technology. Arthur Becker’s name may be familiar to you even if his company is not. Becker is a high profile entrepreneur who is the CEO of ZINIO and he was also the subject of TMZ headlines thanks to his high profile relationship with fashion guru Vera Wang. Putting all of that aside, Becker always has something informative and interesting to say to future entrepreneurs. More details can be found On Crunchbase.

In a sit down interview, Arthur Becker was more than willing to share a few of the little secrets that help keep him going and have made him such a success as a businessman. Becker has succeeded in just about every industry that he has come across so it makes sense that people would want to know how he made it happen. Well, we can break down his success by industry in order to apply the advice that he has to give. Looking at ZINIO, a high profile tech company he joined in 2003, we can see that he has been nothing short of a steady hand at the wheel. Success came early for Becker and ZINIO and that helped give him the courage he needed in order to branch out. You can visit Bloomberg to know more.

In terms of branching out, Becker says that Madison Partners LLC was the first company that he put a private investment in. Madison Partners LLC, which focuses on buying and selling ‘unique’ properties after renovating them, has become something of a powerhouse name within NYC. Becker says that having worked with Vera Wang Fashion, he is more able to go out and really focus on renovation and interior design. This has given him some great insight while working. The common thread for all of Becker’s work is that he is focused on being prepared. When you are prepared, Becker says, you are never struggling with self-doubt.

Emily’s Wen by Chaz Experience

I came across an article on Bustle.com about Wen by Chaz Cleansing Conditioner. I have heard about this product before on Twitter that had gotten great results, so it immediately struck my interest. The article follows a woman, with what she describes as “fine, thin hair”, through a seven-day trial using the Fig scented version. On each of the seven days, Emily gives a detailed account of her experience, and she includes pictures to back it up.

Wen hair Cleansing Conditioner is a unique product for a few reasons. It is described as a 5-in-1 formula designed to replace shampoo, conditioner, deep conditioner, detangler, and leave-in conditioner. It does not contain any foaming agents like sodium lauryl sulfate, or SLS, that strip out the natural oils that protect our hair. Most people are accustomed to shampoos that foam, but Wen by Chaz does not produce any foam. There are numerous studies showing that SLS has negative effects on our health. The health impact of SLS can range from minor skin irritations to even be linked to forms of cancer.

Going on to the Wen website, I see that they produce a number of other hair products, but it seems that the Cleansing Conditioner is their most popular item. It comes in a variety of different scents to cater to everyone’s personal preferences. It is great for all hair types and textures, it can be used every day, it is manufactured in the United States, and it is not tested on animals.

Getting back to Emily’s seven-day experiment, she gives the Sephora sold product a big thumb up. She feels it is particularly beneficial for people with fine hair. I do agree that in her picture on the seventh day her hair looks much thicker than on day one.

Betsy DeVos’ Successful Culture of Giving and Education Reform

I am passionate about education reform. Since my college days at Calvin College, I have not been the one to shy away from politics. For over thirty years, I have been in charge of all manner of political events and activities such as political action committees, party campaigns, and organization. I spent six years as the chairperson of the Michigan Republican Party. I have held various political positions since 1976.

I am currently the Chairperson of the Windquest Group, a private investment company with interests in clean energy, technology, and manufacturing. We established Windquest in 1989 with my husband, Dick DeVos. Dick has previously worked with Amway, and he was also the president of the famous Orlando Magic basketball franchise.

As an ardent advocate of choice in education, I am an excellent choice to chair the American Federation for Children, AFC. In addition, I also head the Alliance for School Choice. I am glad that the private choice programs in education are rapidly gaining traction. New programs are coming up in states that did not have them, and existing ones are expanding. Scores of voters are expressing their support for choice in education especially among the Latino communities.

Betsy Devos involvement in education reform started right here in Michigan. When our children became of school age, we felt that every parent should have a choice in the education their child gets. My husband and I unsuccessfully tried to propose an amendment to the constitution of the state of Michigan to support choice in education in 2000. That marked the start of my commitment to AFC.

I am committed to achieving excellence in business, philanthropy and community development. Our giving efforts reflect our Christian faith and political beliefs. Through our philanthropy platform, the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation, we are passionate about education, children, and politics. We launched the Foundation in 1989 and have realized tremendous success since.

For example in 2012, we gave over $11 million to charitable causes. Between 1999 and 2014, the foundation was able to disburse over $100 million to various causes including Christian organizations, rights groups, and education. Since 1989 to date, our political support runs over $140 million. In 2015, we made it to number twenty-four on the Forbes list of America’s top donors. In the same year, our giving efforts reached over $11 million.

I continue to support dozens of causes through the foundation. Besides the GOP and related political groups, some of the other organizations that receive our support include Potters House, West Michigan Aviation Academy, which my husband runs, the Acton Institute, the Kennedy Center and ArtPrize among many others. In addition, I support public policy, civic education, community development, the church, health services, the arts and leadership development.

I believe politicians have a duty to positively impact the lives of future generations through active community engagement and policy reform. Visit betsydevos.com to know more about Betsy.

The firm has also grown from their initial mission of only researching on oncology to adopt other areas of research. Under the leadership of very experienced scientists, the researchers have outdone themselves to the point of winning awards, such as the Breakthrough Prize.

Effects of E-cigarettes

Oncotarget recently published an article on the effects of electronic cigarettes. A study led by Irfan Rahman and funded by the National Institute of Health showed that these cigarettes have adverse effects on gums and teeth similar to those manifested by conventional cigarettes. Electronic cigarettes have been on the rise among the youths since they are perceived to be healthier. Scientists also had the notion that chemicals found in smoke contained in conventional cigarettes were the cause of these effects until this study showed otherwise. E-cigarettes come with a battery, a heating device, and a liquid holding cartridge, which has nicotine, flavorings, and chemicals. Inflammatory proteins are released when e-cigarette vapors are burned. They, in turn, cause damage that can lead to oral infections. The damage is directly related to some e-cigarettes consumed.

Gudkov, Oncotarget has expanded its publishing to other disciplines such as pathology, autophagy, and neurology among others.
