Thor Halvorssen’s passion for human rights pushed him to launch the Human Rights Foundation. He is not known much to the common man, but unilateral dictators suffer sleepless nights on the mention of Thor Halvorssen. He is a challenge to these dictators because of his unstoppable passion and goal of eliminating violations to human rights throughout the world.
Thor has always been against unilateral dictatorship and does not discriminate against anyone. He is 39 years of age and applies any workable strategy to accomplish his mission towards human rights advocacy. He has different reasons for this fire that burns inside his heart; to see justice and human rights offered to everyone.
Halvorssen’s mother was from Venezuela while his father was Norwegian. His father, Hellum, worked as an ambassador in Norway under anti-narcotics sector. He was investigating a cartel when he got arrested. Thor lobbied tirelessly until his father was freed. His mother died in a shooting in Venezuela in 2004. Thor wrote a letter to the Wall Street Journal explaining the incident.
After witnessing the injustices that led to the death of his parents, it is now easy to understand why he decided to engage in the advocacy for human rights. His mother died during a peaceful protest while his father was one of the political prisoners. He does not have only base his advocacy on politics. He is also interested in public policy, civil liberty, public interests and pro-democracy advocacy. He has always been against human trafficking and slavery because they undermine the human rights of the victims.
Currently, Thor Halvorssen is working with Bryan Singer on a film entitled The Moon is a Harsh Mistress. He has had his opinions featured in the Washington Post, Time Magazine, the National Journal, the New York Times, and the National Public Radio among others. He has also appeared on television courtesy of BBC News, CNN, Fox News, Aljazeera and Hannity & Colmes. This is enough evidence that Thor Halvorssen is doing a commendable job in fighting for human rights. The Human Rights Foundation has made his passion a reality.
Betsy was born in 1958 to her able parents; Elsa and Edgar, who were entrepreneurs with a conspicuously high standing. She went ahead to pursue her bachelors’ degree in Arts from Calvin College. Apparently, DeVos had a particular liking for politics and has taken part in Michigan Republican Party since 1982. She served several positions while there among them being; local precinct delegate, national committeewoman, chairperson and at some point an editor of the ‘Inside Michigan Politics’ bulletin. Again in 2003, she sought the presidents’ position, and sure enough, she qualified unopposed.
Betsy DeVos’ Charitable Works
Betsy and her husband Dick founded a charitable organization in 1989 and had since been channeling their million dollars towards its growth. They are strong in Christian beliefs, most likely reason that has made President Trump get inclined towards her. As per the tax records, in 2015 the couple donated over $10 million to a variety of organizations and went ahead to pledge even more, to be given in years to come. Among the benefiting organizations include; The Partnership for Educational Justice, Success Academy Charter Schools, The Potter’s House, Conservative organizations as well as various other colleges and universities across the country.
Why Betsy DeVos Deserves an Influential Position in Education Sector
I find it saddening that Barbara Miner could publish an article reprimanding Betsy. She alleges that Betsy is after introducing a voucher program to replace the current “democratically controlled public schools” system. There is so much elusiveness in the said allegations considering that the system is run by civil servants, and not necessarily democratically controlled. Again the system in use operates on goals that have the least interest of the children, which is probably the reason why survey shows that most color communities support vouchers. I find Betsy being the ideal person to handle the position of US education secretary. Apparently, as long as a school meets the states’ standards, use of vouchers should not be restricted.

No doubt Betsy is an iron woman who is passionate for God. Having been in politics has taught her to be resilient. I am confident that she has accumulated a lot of leadership qualities following the various positions she has served. As at now, she feels greatly honored to serve in the president Trump’s regime. Her passion is unstoppable, and the zeal unrelenting. At no point will DeVos stoop low or shy from any office, however influential. She is an epitome of resilience. When Betsy talks of vouchers, I know that her motive is positive, especially towards the children. It is only this month that she assumed office and I cannot wait for the transformation she will bring in the education sector. Folllow Betsy on Twitter

A breach of contract lawsuit has been filed by the former Atlanta Hawks ownership group, The Atlanta Hawks Basketball and Entertainment LLC (AHBE) and controlling partner Bruce Levenson, against AIG and it’s subsidiary New Hampshire Insurance Company.
Filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County on Sept. 13, the lawsuit claims a breach of contract had occurred and that it was covered under a policy covering particular losses relating to wrongful termination.
Previous court documents showed the AHBE filed on April 2,2015 giving notice to AIG about the claims made by former general manager Danny Ferry were covered by the policy. Danny Ferry had been let go by the former Hawks ownership group and a buyout was reached on June 22,2015. Two days later, approval of the sale of ownership of the franchise was approved to the ownership group led by Tony Ressler. See, http://www.forbes.com/sites/mikeozanian/2015/04/23/bankers-for-levenson-oversold-atlanta-hawks-by-27/.
The new ownership group declined to comment on the lawsuit stating “The principal parties involved no longer have ties to the Atlanta Hawks Organization”.
The lawsuit also states that according to AIG the policy was never triggered and that a claim was never made. This failure to pay for the coverage in the settlement is the breach of contract mentioned in the lawsuit.
Despite his recent sale of ownership, Bruce Levenson is still active in multiple philanthropic endeavors like the Community Foundation of Washington D.C. and the Hoops Dreams Foundation. He also previously served as president of the Washington chapter of I Have A Dream Foundation and a founding donor of the U.S. Holocaust Museum.
