George Soros Returns in Style to Political Mainstream

4:54 pm on July 14, 2017

The rise of George Soros as a political juggernaut has been something a long time in the making. Soros is someone who came from nothing and worked his way into becoming one of the wealthiest people on the planet, one of the most giving philanthropists in the world, and one of the foremost progressive activists that the United States has ever seen. Soros has largely been sitting outside of the spotlight of mainstream politics for the past few years but he decided to get right back into it during the 2016 Presidential Election. The reason, according to his political adviser Michael Vachon, was that the stakes were too high and the rhetoric was simply too strong and hostile to ignore.

We can see where George Soros is going by looking at where he came from. George Soros was born and raised in Hungary before he was forced to flee due to the Nazi occupation that nearly ruined the country. Soros would go on to emigrate into London where he would study at the London School of Economics, working two jobs just to make his way through University. While at school, George Soros would hone in on the philosophies that would define his philanthropic and political endeavors in life. Eventually Soros would sail to America, start up the Soros Hedge Fund, and become a philanthropic and progressive heavyweight along the way. Visit projectsyndicate.com to know more about George.

Now, we are in 2016 and the presidential election campaigns are in full swing. Soros saw how disparate the rhetoric was getting between the right and left wing and he knew that he had to jump in and do something about it. George Soros was diametrically opposed to everything that Donald Trump, a trust fund kid focusing on anti-immigrant and anti-labor policies had stood for. So, Soros immediately jumped in and put serious money down in order to back liberal candidates all around the country. Soros would end up donating nearly $25 million along the way, giving up to $7 million to a Pro-Clinton PAC as well as a host of other political action committees that stood for what Soros believed in. Read more at Politico about George Soros.

Many people wonder why Soros stayed out of the political spotlight for so long but the answer was simple: he doesn’t believe in big money playing a huge influence in politics, despite being willing to raise money for his own beliefs. An anonymous liberal operative close to Soros said that the man returned to politics in order to “balance the scales” between right wing and left wing giving. Soros also has been known to be extremely close to and fond of Hillary Clinton, calling her a progressive that is open and receptive to other progressives like himself whenever he needs to talk to her.

Fruit Fragrance Lip Balm

2:39 pm on June 20, 2017

When choosing the EOS lip balm that I use, I look for how it makes my lips feel and how it smells. I also take into consideration how it tastes on my lips. There are several flavors that EOS offers, but there are a few that really stand out compared to others. Follow frenchtribune.com for more news.

One of my favorite flavors is the lemon drop. It comes in a bright yellow container, and the balm itself is light yellow in color. I enjoy the scent that exudes from the container when I open the lid. The scent and flavor are comparable to a slice of lemon with a little sugar on top. It’s not an overpowering fragrance, which is something that I enjoy.

My other favorite flavor from EOS is strawberry. It’s like walking through a field of berries on a spring day. The scent is mesmerizing and is delicious on the lips. It’s perhaps the freshest scent that I have had in a lip balm. There is a hint of vanilla, giving the lip balm a creamy flavor like you would find in a milkshake. Get more info here on youtube.com.

EOS offers lip balms that are made with natural ingredients. They contain Shea butter and jojoba oil, both that make the lips soft. Products are tested and safe.

Stopping Violence in Prison Using Securus Technologies

7:08 am on June 16, 2017

The prison system today is a much more violent place to work than it was many years ago. The reason for the escalation in violence can be broken down into three components. One, the gang presence in the prison has escalated, two, the prison is overcrowded, and lastly, contraband of all sorts is making its ways into the hands of the inmates in record numbers. My job as a corrections officer is trying to interrupt the flow of contraband because I have no control over the number of inmates in the jail.

 

We check each visitor that come into our prison, but even after full body searches and scans through the x-ray center, they will get the items the inmates need to them if they are persistent enough. The visitors to our jail do not care about getting caught or doing time in jail, especially the lower-level gang members who are ordered by their superiors to take a hit for the better of the group. That is what we have working against us each day.

 

Securus Technologies had recently updated the prison inmate call system, and me and my fellow officers were being trained to use the new LBS software that came with the system. This was going to change the way we conducted our searches in the jail. Instead of my team trying to anticipate what illegal activities were going on, we let the software alert us to conversations that would do the work for us.

 

Today, we let the alert feature tip us off to which inmates are using drugs in their cells. The system alerts us if gang members are talking about buying, selling, or moving drugs. We are even able to detect chatter about orders to attack inmates or police officers, then take the appropriate actions.

 

EOS- Changing the Lip Care Industry

1:46 pm on June 12, 2017

Change is inevitable. This thought applies to many areas of life. For years, however this did not apply in the world of lip care. The same basic companies dominated this area that did not include much variety. That all has changed now thanks to the minds of Jonathan Teller, Craig Dubitsky and Sanjiv Mehra. This trio is responsible for bringing about EOS (Evolution of Smooth). Their product would change the way people looked at lip care. Read frenchtribune.com for more.

 

EOS has become quite successful, currently the second best-selling lip balm in the country. They have even outsold well known brands such as Chapstick and Blistex. Today the company is worth more than $250 million dollars. The company was birthed because it’s founders saw an opportunity to create variety in this space. They sought to create a product that was appealing to both sexes and that appealed to all five senses. Careful thought and planning went into the rethinking of the traditional tube, as to not create a fad, but a product that would be around for many years to come. EOS is now a leader in this growing space.

 

One of the more interesting parts of EOS’s story is the way the company marketed the product. They truly understand that a unique approach was necessary to reach millennials. EOS used social medial outlets like Facebook, Youtube.com and Instagram to get the word out about their product. The product appeared in music videos by Miley Cyrus and Britney Spears and stars like Taylor Swift became a spokesperson for the product. All of this hard work has paid off. Today EOS has emerged to a household name with a large social media presence including more than seven million Facebook followers. Hit this page.

 

Changing an established industry is not easy, but EOS has done just that. They have created a model for innovation and creativity within an industry. As a result they have developed a product that should be around for some time to come.

Larkin And Lacey – Taking A Bold And A Strong Initiative Of Helping People

5:50 pm on May 28, 2017

It is through upholding human rights and dignity that every person on earth, weather poor or rich can feel valued by the society they live in. Sadly, some people, organizations or countries do not observe the laid out laws that aims at protecting every human beings.

Some people are jailed without any legal representation or charged higher and unreasonable fines. Some other people are used by drug traffickers as means of transporting the illegal drugs and all other forms of injustices happening in the world.

It is because of this that Amnesty International was formed back in 1961, to represent all people, the minority, the voiceless, children and women. Since its inception. Amnesty has millions of members and it is funded by their contribution and other donors. Read more: About Lacey and Larkin- Frontera Fund

It is purely non-governmental organization that has members from over 150 countries across the world. Since amnesty is free from any interference from governments, it works effectively to represent the rights of any individual in any part of the world without preference or intimidation from any authority.

Among the people represented by Amnesty are; refugees, prisoners, women, children and other minority groups that are discriminated based on their sexuality or religious practices.

By representing these people, amnesty ensures that they have legal representation when they appear in court and although death penalty is legal in some states and countries, Amnesty still fights against it as it fights against torturing prisoners in an attempt of getting information out of them.

Amnesty works under the principle of global impartiality, justice for all, respect, global security and democracy for all. To protect children, amnesty fights against recruitment of child soldiers and advocates for free and compulsory education for all children in the world. Amnesty still works to protect all political people by ensuring that anybody involved in politics is safe to practice his rights without fear of extrajudicial killings.

There are other organizations who like amnesty have dedicated their time and resources in ensuring that human rights are upheld by all. Michael Lacey and Jim founded New Times and Village Voice Mediaand dedicated all their $3.75 million settlement money that resulted from their arrest case in 2007 into the organization to protect and fight for the right of all.

The two were arrested in the middle of the night from their homes for revealing the existence of a grand jury proceeding on Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The jury was seeking some notes from the two journalists regarding the sheriff. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/relevant-links/

Lacey and Jim have now dedicated all the money that they got from their unwarranted arrest to protect freedom of speech and other human rights by giving voice to the voiceless through provision of funds to human rights organizations.
