Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

In 2007 Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested in their homes under the orders of Former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The pair operated the Phoenix New Times, a newspaper that spoke out against the actions of Arpaio. Today the two are speaking out again against Arpaio, this time in response to President Trump’s pardoning of the disgraced sheriff.

Michael Lacey, a New Jersey native, created the Phoenix New times with some fellow students after he dropped out of the University of Arizona in 1970.

Jim Larkin, who had also dropped out of Arizona State University joined the paper in 1972. Larkin quickly began to take charge of the advertising portion of the journalism business while Lacey stood as executive editor.  Read more: Michael Lacey | Facebook and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

The arrests of Lacey and Larkin came as a response to years of them exposing corruption and crimes committed by Joe Arpaio and his staff. In 2007 a lawsuit was filed against Arpaio, accusing him of racial profiling.

A judge ordered Arpaio to change his practices, an order which he ignored. In 2017 Arpaio was convicted of criminal contempt for ignoring these orders but was pardoned by President Trump before seeing any jail time.

Lacey and Larkin were upset with this decision by the president and began to speak out against Arpaio once again.

Arpaio had long feuded with the Phoenix New Times, threatening to arrest reporters, keeping them from attending press conferences, and refusing to provide the paper with county records. In 2004, Lacey and Larkin exposed a series of corrupt dealings performed by Joe Arpaio and his wife, the action that likely lead to their arrests.

The arrests of the reporters became national news within a number of hours, and they were released within 24 hours.

The two want to make sure people are aware of Arpaio’s crimes, which include inhumane treatments of prisoners in prisons he ran. He forced prisoners to live in tents in 135 degrees Fahrenheit weather, ordered guards to physically beat disobedient prisoners, and chained expectant mothers in the prisons to their hospital beds while they gave birth.

Lacey, Larkin, and many others are appalled that they former sheriff will not be imprisoned for his crimes, and they want to bring attention to the corruption that is still occurring both on the state and federal levels.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin currently operate the Fontera Fund, which advocates for civil rights, and the rights of immigrants.

The Fight for the Most Important and Basic Rights that We Have

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two journalists who have always been the voice of civil, human, and migrant rights as well as free speech and they have never stopped fighting for these most fundamental rights that we all have. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.phoenixnewtimes.com/blogs/az-aclu-honors-new-times-founders-jim-larkin-and-mike-lacey-as-civil-libertarians-of-the-year-6500737

Although human and civil rights are available to all humans and they should be, these rights are also the most important ones that we have. Unfortunately, these benefits are usually the ones being violated by the very institutions we elected to protect these rights. Many law enforcers end up using their power and reputation to get an edge over other people, and some use their reach to be above the law.

That is why the Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund is aiming to support all the groups that are passionate and fight for civil, human and migrant rights and the essential freedom of speech.

Although there are many groups that have the non-profitable goal of fighting for the rights of every citizen, they often struggle with not having monetary support backing their decisions and actions with real resources. The creation of the Frontera Fund, however, has changed this reality forever.

This fund came from the $3.75 million settlement money awarded to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin when the two journalists sued the Maricopa County when they were illegally arrested on October 18, 2007. Why were they arrested? Because the two journalists were doing their job and investigating the past of a law enforcer that had already been accused of fraud, corruption, and irregularities. It was the famous Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

Their incarceration was the result of them exposing the grand jury proceedings that sought reporters notes for articles about Sheriff Joe Arpaio.

They also revealed that there were even subpoenas issued by the grand jury demanding the identities and information of individuals who follow the news articles involving Sheriff Joe Arpaio. All of these as well as the incarceration of the two journalists were clear attempts of a cover-up and the suppression of freedom of information as well as a right to privacy.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are calling for all the groups out there that fight for these most important rights that we have to come to them if they need funding and support. Because if we do not fight oppression and violation of our most basic rights, then there will be more impunity by the very institutions we expect to defend our rights.

 

Michael Lacey & Jim Larkin Reaction towards Joe’s Behavior

Michael and Jim are the co-founders of Front Page Confidential. They came out to speak concerning the pardon of America’s sheriff, Joe Arpaio by President Donald Trump. This is after a story of the arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin which happened almost ten years ago where the two were arrested at their homes in Phoenix, Arizona. They were arrested through the orders to agents from Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit. Joe Arpaio gave the orders for their arrest on claims that the two had a crime of revealing details about the grand jury investigations. That time, Larkin was the chief executive officer of their company, “Village Voice Media newspaper”, while Lacey was the executive editor. Before their arrest, they had published a message concerning the grand jury probe through the company’s publications called the “Phoenix New Times.”

Michael and Jim revealed that the grand jury had been investigating them. Moreover, this was a set up for the two by Joe because of their consistent coverage of the ill deeds that were happening in his department thus, exposing him. Phoenix New Times revisited this story and it was made available on Front Page Confidential. The matter was settled by Maricopa County after paying $3.75 million to set the two free. They invested the money on endowing a new non-profit organization called Frontera Fund. This organization is dedicated to upholding and protecting the rights of both immigrants and migrants. People have lost faith with Joe and that has cost him the loss of positions in the state. President Donald Trump came in and pardoned Joe hence sparing him of the prison term that he was to face. In response to this, Lacey reacted by saying that the reason for the pardoning could have been to establish his relationship for political reasons. All this was done with some personal intentions at heart.

 

Waiakea Water, an Emerging Power in Bottled Water

Currently, many companies are producing bottled water around the world. It is easy to note the many brands of bottled water from different companies whenever you enter a grocery. The bottled water industry is estimated to have reached hundred billion dollars across the globe. Italy has been recorded as the leading in the bottled water consumption with many other countries positioning themselves close by.

First, the thought of starting the industry of bottled water was ridiculous. No one could have ever imagined of that especially in a place where the provision of tapped water is as clean as filtered water. The notion was that no one could buy water, a commodity that could be obtained freely from the tap at home. With now the many companies dealing with bottled water, there has to be a unique formula in bottled water that would make you stand out as the best. Companies perhaps may claim their water to contain additional goodness such as minerals and vitamins with the aim of standing out the best.

Waiakea is among these companies but has stood out. Waiakea is a company located in Hawaii. There is a general winning thought in the minds of the people that any foodstuff that comes from Hawaii must be of natural origin and fresh. The work Waiakea, which is the company’s name, comes from two words from Hawaii – Waiakea- that means broad water. Further, Waiakea pushes the quality of the bottled water through the establishment of the filtering process. The filtering process is natural as the water flows through the 14 000 porous rocks of the Mauna Loa Volcano. The feeling that one is taking natural water makes it great for many consumers.

Another thing that makes Waiakea water stand out is the concern that it raises against pollution of the environment. There has come to be found out that the oceans receive tones of plastic each year. Plastic is not degradable. Waiakea has developed a degradable plastic that is recyclable and only takes fifteen years to be degraded. It is going to be introduced to the market to become the world’s first degradeable plastic. Additionally, the company uses low emission vehicles to carry around their products.

He planned to hire up to 25,000 people over a three-year within the United States alone. This was a way of showing the company’s commitment to creativity and growth.

When the main organization thrives it affects the brands that are affiliated with it. Chenevert paid close attention to his suppliers because UTC outsources a great deal of its activity. The relationships between the support organizations had to be kept intact. Chenevert allocated up to 40 million dollars over a 3 year period to support suppliers.

People are the source behind successful technology. UTC shows support for its creators by allowing them to push past limits. The company sponsors a scholarship program that lets team members to pursue a degree in whatever choice of study they decide on. The company pays for the entire tuition.

Dr. Scott Rocklage’s advice for making and keeping quality business contacts

Dr. Scott Rocklage is no stranger to working with other people in business. With over 30 years as a medical professional, he has co-authored over 100 pure reviewed articles.

In addition to his purely academic collaboration, he is also inventor or co-inventor on 30 different patents for the medical field. Working with others has been a major part of his life, and there are a few key pieces of wisdom he would like to share with the world. Read more: Scott Racklage | Bloomberg

While he has always focused on other people in his business practice, you still insist that he regrets not working more with other people on critical projects. Specifically, hiring and recruiting the right people to be on a team is absolutely crucial to the long-term success of the organization.

This goes beyond the nuances of the individual’s skill; it encompasses their ability to work with the other people on the team as well as the general demeanor. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: http://5amventures.com/team/scott-m-rocklage-phd/

This plays into his second piece of advice. Even though collaboration with other people is vital, not all people are a good fit. You can’t expect someone to change their fundamental personality traits and quirks, even with constructive criticism, feedback, and performance reviews.

In most cases, if an employee is not a good fit for a business that relationship should be separated sooner rather than later. The individual and the organization are usually much better off working with people who they are not at odds with at all times.

Finally, Dr. Rocklage encourages entrepreneurs to not be afraid of measured risk-taking. In a sign says we can measure data and predict an outcome.

Most scientists are confident in their ability to measure and record information, yet for some reason, they decide that once they enter the business world they no longer trust these instincts. It’s perfectly acceptable take a risk on yourself or an employee, there will always be more opportunities and the risk is almost always worth the reward.

Even with a lifetime of collaboration, Dr. Rocklage recognizes that he could have still work with people more frequently. It is clear that based on this experience, the importance of quality partners and colleagues cannot be understated.
