Lacey and Larkin Do Not Plan on Losing

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the owners of Village Voice Media. Through Village Voice Media they report current news in the Maricopa County through the Phoenix News Times. One person who has consistently appeared in the Phoenix News Times is the Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia

Sheriff Joe Arpaio, who has dubbed himself America’s Toughest Sheriff, has committed many atrocities against the Latino community, and Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have blown the lid on his entire operation.

Through the Phoenix New Times, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were able to report how Sheriff Joe Arpaio was able to turn the Maricopa County Police Department into his own personal army.

It all began when Sheriff Joe Arpaio systematically looked through the human resource files and fired every police officer who refused to engage in racial profiling. He then filled their positions with police officers who were more than willing to specifically target Latinos or Hispanics.

After this, he created a reward system that gave police officers monetary bonuses for bringing in illegal immigrants.

The next thing they reported on was how he was solely responsible for an innocent family’s home being burnt the ground. He had a tip that most police officers would say did not come from a trustable source. However, he went with his gut and ordered for the SWAT team to move in on this home because it was allegedly a drug cache.

Of course, they found no drugs in this Hispanic home, but because the raid went awfully wrong, the home burned to the ground. Sheriff Joe Arpaio prevented the family from calling the fire department by detaining them and putting them into the cop cars.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio was also responsible for the death of an unborn child. One of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s favorite ploys was to detain illegal immigrants and then underneath the law of the state of Arizona deny them medical care.

He did this with a woman who was pregnant and in her third trimester. Unfortunately, she was really an American citizen, but because he would not listen to her and look up for information, the child died needlessly.

These were just some of the evils that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin reported on to the Phoenix News Times. When Joseph Arpaio heard this on the radio, he called his police force together to come up with a way to silence these two men.

He gathered together several unmarked black SUVs, which was in violation of Arizona law, and under the cover of darkness burst into the homes of these two men and threatened to arrest them if they did not hand over the evidence. Of course, they refuse to do so and then were illegally detained.

This illegal detention would give the men the grounds they needed to file a lawsuit against the Maricopa County Police Department. In the end, they will be awarded a settlement of $3.75 million which started the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

Despite the fact that there are few women leading the kind of companies that she has, McGalla is not one to think of her promotions as a victory for women. She has been asked about it by various media publications in Pittsburgh, and every time she always tells them that her accomplishments are those of a person, not of a woman. It may have shocked the local media that she does not think of those accomplishments through the gender lens, but it’s because she says she was taught as a young girl that nothing would be earned by her being a woman.

She started her professional career at the now defunct Joseph Horne Company where she picked up quickly on merchandising operations and became adept at management. In 1994, she joined American Eagle Outfitters where she started as a local merchandising manager, but then joined the corporate team and took over regional merchandising operations.

ClassDojo Application Applauded By Numerous Educational Facilities

Education technology is in the recent past one tangible investment that entrepreneurs are looking keenly into. Edtech investments are aimed to make learning more easier and fun, to all relevant stakeholders. Edtech has been reported to make great progress since 2015 and still very hopeful about 2017, considering the several startups in the market such as Classcraft, Nearpool, ClassDojo, among others.

These technologies have been aimed to change the traditional face of education to interesting online learning platforms both for the kids and the teachers. The success of edtech investments is traceable back to this factor as well as thorough testing, to ensure they are up to the task, before being released into the market for use by the educators and kids.

While investing in the education technology may seem like an existing ready market, most investors may fail to impress due to their lack of understanding of what exactly the educators and the kids need. It goes without saying that teachers understand best what works best in schools and thus the best people to engage before venturing into the investment. This is well evident with ClassDojo application, which has made communication among teachers, students and parents very easy and possible. ClassDojo has been able to provide solution to the existing communication problem in schools, where teachers and parents lacked a communication platform, to discuss the student’s progress without having to schedule for a meeting. Due to this factor, ClassDojo app has been embraced by several schools in US.

ClassDojo has also been rigorously tested, with the founders committing to work with edtech accelerators and make frequent interactions with teachers, students and parents throughout product designing.

Having a good education technology is an awesome thing, but can’t be great without an implementation plan at hand. Though schools all over can easily have access to internet, adopting a new technology has never been easy not only for educators but for everyone. ClassDojo has largely been adopted by schools, due to their consistent support to educators, who are still adapting to the functionality of the application.

Human, Immigrant and Civil Rights Inspired by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin

**UPDATE!**

Advocacy Groups Use Technology, Laws and Aggressive Actions to Support Youth Immigrant Rights

When the Trump Administration decided to make changes to the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrival (DACA), there was a force of opposition within the immigrant community; mostly from younger generations. The program is the only thing that has shielded them from any sort of deportation or adverse actions against their future citizenship.

 

The youth activists, who are opposing the changes, are among the protesters all across the United States including a sit-in at Trump Towers in New York City where Mr. Trump previously resided. The protest signified to the country that there is a movement taking place that is a nationwide act of solidarity, and a new-age civil rights movement.

 

One of the more progressive advocacy group’s leading the nationwide protest around the country is moveon.org. MoveOn is the largest and most-effective digitally advanced advocacy group within the technological world. Founded in 1988, the advocacy group can get the word out on social awareness issues faster than other groups. The advocacy group has made it clear that if democrats within Congress refuse to act then grassroots efforts will be elevated for bringing justice for the potentially 800,000 young people facing deportation.

 

The group’s stand on the immigration issue is supported by the National Immigrant Justice Center (NIJC). The NIJC is dedicated to providing assurances to the immigrant community that their human rights and civil protections will be safe-guarded. The group has worked on behalf of refugees and asylum seekers with pro bono attorneys. The advocacy group has been successful with helping more than 10,000 asylum seekers and refugees with legal services. NIJC has set positive precedents throughout the country to accomplish human rights and civil protections using hundreds of attorney’s from some of the most-prestigious and leading law firms in the country.

 

The Lacey and Larkin Foundation also uses the technological advancements within the modern day world. Founded in 2013, the organization continually builds a foundation of resources, materials and updated policy changes, and conveys the information through all social media platforms and other technological means. The information is available when needed directly for the immigrant community. When Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin first established the fund with a $3.75 million settlement received from a First Amendment landmark case (Lacy v. Arpaio), it was initially due to the anti-Latino conditions within the Arizona community. Since that time, the fund has grown into a nationally recognized support for immigrants and migrant workers including the Arizona youth.

 

With technology transforming the world into one large market, people are traveling every day to live in different countries. This is in search of employment and survival. To some immigrants, the political and civil status left them with no choice but migrate.

Unfortunately, most countries have policies that make the life of immigrants very difficult. Most of the immigrants, cannot practice democratic rights or participate in any decision making of the country. In the worst scenario, they are denied the most basic needs. As a result, many philanthropist groups have been formed to improve the lives of the immigrants. Some of this humanitarian groups include;

The American Immigration Lawyer Association (AILA)

AILA was founded in 1946.The Organization was initially known as Association of Immigration and Nationality Lawyers (AINL).The firm has sufficient law professors and attorney to meet their needs.

AILA foundation is unbiased and serves everyone equally. The firm is a non-profit organization created with an objective of helping the immigrants. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

The attorneys represent the immigrants in acquiring permanent homes in the state. Besides the settling home, the attorneys are committed to educating the people on immigrant’s law.

Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund

The founders of the Frontera Fund are the two journalists who founded Village Voice Media and Phoenix New Times.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been known for fighting for their rights in most times of their career. The two published the evil acts of the Sherriff. On learning this, the sheriff arrested the two journalists from their homes at 12midnight.

The public held demonstrations, demanding their release. Lacey and Larkin were, therefore, released in less than 24 hours. Ongoing to court, the arrest was considered illegal. The two received a compensation of $3.75 million.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used the money in financing the humanitarian groups of Arizona. Currently, the organization’s project is on the DACA foundation.

DACA foundation was formed to take care of immigrants who are in the state illegally. The organization has 800000 beneficiaries.

The firm gives the members a chance to complete their unfinished business. Some members complete their education while other acquire the legal documentation to remain in the country.

Lately, the foundation is facing some challenges. The Texas Attorney General accused the organization of not having the right documentation to support its existence. The Attorney General with the support of nine other officials has ordered the Trump Government to shut down the organization. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: https://michael-lacey.com/ and https://about.me/michael-lacey

Its close down would cause severe damage to the big number of beneficiaries. The members are worried, especially, after Kelly made his announcement. He said that despite the efforts the staff was putting on the matter, the organization was still unstable.

The Frontera Fund has promised to ensure that the DACA issue finds a permanent solution. This has restored the hope of the members.

The Arizona settlers are very angry at the action taken by the AG. They have described the action as ungrateful and malicious.

The Arizona occupants, explain that the immigrants have also contributed to the well-being of the state. Deportation is, therefore, a mean way to pay back the immigrants.

Brazilian Rally Driver Michel Terpins

Sao Paulo born Michel Terpins is known as one of Brazil’s best and most decorated rally drivers. He’s won most of the driving competitions he’s entered throughout his history in the race car driving industry. Along with his brother, Rodrigo, he won the 24th edition of what is called the Sertoes Rally, which is a racing competition he started participating in back in 2002 when he entered the contest in the motorcycle category.

He and his brother are part of a rally team that they, along with a man named Maykel Justo, formed in 2015 called Bull Sertoes. This team is considered to be one of the finest in the Sertoes Rally due to their keen skill, and the fact that they’ve won so many driving competitions. After winning the 2nd stage of the Sertoes Rally, Michel said that it was a difficult and exhausting stage to get through because of the mountainous terrain that was involved. But the powerful V8 engine that the team added to their racer handled the rough terrain adequately.

Michel Terpins took an interest in auto mechanics at a very early age, when he started repairing cars. Coming from a family of sportsmen, he developed an interest in racing and from there went on to enter many driving contests, including the Cross Country Rally, which he won in 2015 as a runner-up. His father, Jack, was a famous basketball player in the 1960s, and part of the 1970s. And his brother, Rodrigo, who is a part of his driving team, is also a skilled and talented driver.

The Sertoes Rally, which attracts many well established race car drivers, as well as enthusiastic fans every year, is one of the Terpins brothers biggest and most challenging driving competitions. Another race they competed in was the 2011 Mitsubishi Cup Championship, which was sponsored by the MEM Motorsport brand, a company that was responsible for developing the brothers’ racing vehicle known as T-Rex.

Michel Terpins’ exceptional driving skills and endurance in the racing world is one of the things that has made him so popular and admired by his fellow Brazilians.

Michel Terpins: Finally a Winner of the Sertoes Rally After Ten Attempts

The rally driving scene in Brazil has grown tremendously in recent years. Among the most popular events in the country’s rallying calendar is the Sertoes Rally. The rally has consistently been held for more than a decade and attracts drivers in different categories, including cars, motorcycles, and UTVs. One of the winners within this year’s categories of cars is Michel Terpins. The veteran driver took the lead early on in the T1 prototype category and did not once relinquish it.

Michel Terpins win was the first in ten attempts of trying. He first took part in the Sertoes rally in 2002 where he raced in the motorcycle category. In all the editions he has taken part in since Terpins has raced in the T1 category with a modified T-Rex from the MEM motorsport support team. By winning the 2017 Sertoes Rally, Michel Terpins has also risen to the National Cross Country Championship overseen by the Brazilian Automobile Confederation (CBA).

The Sertoes rally, if anything, is known for its complexity and thrill. With seven stages covering thousands of kilometers, the race has claimed many drivers. The hardest stage of the rally is the 3rd stage which is also known as the marathon stage. Over the entire course of the stage, drivers are not allowed to ask for any external mechanical assistance. Consequently, making it through this section requires not only speed but also restrain and durability. A testament to his driving skills, Michel Terpins took the lead during this third section.

In highlighting Terpins’s big win, it is important not to forget to mention his co-driver, Maykel Justo. The equally experienced Justo has taken part in multiple races over the course of his rally career. Over the last two Sertoes rally editions where they have worked together, the undeniable chemistry between Justo and Terpins had been clear for all to see.

Michel Terpins is also quite fortunate to have a strong support team behind him in the Bull Sertoes Team. He founded the team a few years ago with his elder brother, Rodrigo Terpins, who also happens to be a rally driver.
