The current attacks on the media by President Donald Trump follow a well-known path in the view of Village Voice Media executives, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.
The two journalists have recently been discussing the case of Arpaio and the Presidential Pardon he received following decades of attacks on the Latino community of the Southwest. Larkin & Lacey established their Frontera Fund as a direct response to their own arrest for publishing details of the criminal activity at the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department headed by Arpaio.

Larkin and Lacey had been aware of rumors of concentration camp style holding centers in Maricopa County, and the racist profiling of Latino’s by the Sheriff’s Department for some time when they began their investigation.
Not only did their investigation in the early 2000s expose the former Sheriff as racist, but uncovered financial irregularities within the department. After the allies of Arpaio began to see Larkin and Lacey as a threat to their careers, the journalists were subjected to harassment headed by a special investigation team.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were served with a subpoena they believed to be a breach of the right to free speech of themselves and their readers.
Sheriff Arpaio’s office illegally demanded the two men turnover all records detailing the readership of their Phoenix New Times newspaper and its Online platform. Detailing the subpoena led to the two men being arrested in an illegal raid on their homes with no reasons given for their arrests.
The Village Voice Media executives would eventually settle their case for $3.7 million and use these funds to fight for the rights of the Latino community along the U.S.-Mexican border.
Larkin & Lacey agree the pardoning of Arpaio is one of the most controversial of all time and is a move on the part of both the President and the former sheriff to appeal to a nationalist underclass. What will happen to Arpaio next is something of a mystery but a potential run for the Senate remains a distinct possibility.
Pardoning the former Arizona Sheriff shows the lack of respect Trump has for the Latino community, in the view of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. A potential pardon for Joe Arpaio had been mooted throughout the Presidential campaign which saw the real estate mogul appeal to nationalists who view Arpaio as some form of hero.
However, Larkin and Lacey believe Arpaio proved his abilities as a shrewd politician by jumping on the Trump bandwagon when his candidacy was still viewed as a publicity stunt.
The success Larkin and Lacey can point to includes the fact their work has publicized the racist and illegal behavior of the former Maricopa County Sheriff to the world.
Louis R. Chenevert is a Canadian executive and entrepreneur who served as the chief executive officer of the United Technologies Corporation from 2008 to 2014. He previously worked with other companies, most notably General Motors where he worked for more than 14 years. Louis R. Chenevert is considered as one of the best leaders of the United Technologies Corporation because he managed to take the company to a whole new level after serving as their chief executive officer. He also introduced several changes that made the company one of the most profitable in the industry.
Back when he was still working for General Motors, Louis R. Chenevert had an idea to quit the vehicle manufacturing company and work for a different industry. One of his colleagues convinced him to work for the United Technologies Corporation and assured him that his experiences with General Motors would not be put to waste. Louis R. Chenevert decided to leave his company for 14 years to experience a new direction in his career. He initially worked with the subsidiaries of the United Technologies Corporation, specifically with PWC and P&W. These subsidiaries have two different goals – one is to create the smallest aircraft, while the other one targets to develop the largest engines.
Louis R. Chenevert managed to overcome all of the challenges that he faced while working with the subsidiaries of the United Technologies Corporation, and he gained the attention from the headquarters. Because of his exceptional performance, he was named as the new chief executive officer of the company in 2008. He used his ability to lead the company to success and launched programs which have benefited the company’s employees. He provided scholarships to the United Technologies Corporation employees, giving them the freedom to choose which degree they would want to take in college. Because of his programs, the United Technologies Corporation had a sudden surge in the number of engineers and other professionals. Another reform that he introduced is the expansion and strengthening of their relationship with their business partners, especially with the United States military and other similar organizations and institutions.
In 2015, Bradesco bank signed a deal to acquire the Brazilian HSBC branch for $5.2 billion. The deal was written in the history books as one of the biggest transactions undertaken by a Brazilian bank in the recent past. The transaction was spearheaded by none other than the president of Bradesco bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi. The news about the acquisition quickly spread to every corner of the country like a bushfire. It left many people, including experts wondering if it was worth the risk for Bradesco bank to sign the mega-billion dollar deal.
However, in the eyes of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi, one of the best banking officials in Brazil, it was the best thing that Bradesco bank has ever done. Initially, Luiz had developed a plan that would enable Bradesco bank to grow organically for the next ten years and regain its dominance in the Brazilian banking industry.
However, with the signing of the deal, Bradesco was able to grow six times ahead of its organic growth. The bank managed to increase the number of account holders, branches, and even assets to surpass that of their competitors. Since 2015, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has spent much of his time overseeing the smooth integration of HSBC bank into Bradesco.

More details on HSBC acquisition
The deal went down in 2015 and it was between HSBC bank and Bradesco bank, the second largest lender in Latin America. According to details of the acquisition, it would enable Bradesco to boost its assets by more than 16 percent. The main challenge of the acquisition is to decide how to integrate the two banks and ensure smooth operations. At the time of acquisition, HSBC Brazil division had over five million clients. The bank also had over 281 branches spread in different parts of the country and employed over 21000 employees.
At first, it was difficult for Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi to convince other stakeholders that the deal was worth the money. But he successfully convinced them after presenting a complete plan that made the company enter into a 17.6 billion deal.
Before the acquisition of HSBC bank by Bradesco bank, it had begun to underperform, which the officials realized that it wasn’t profitable. The Brazilian HSBC was overstaffed and it failed to achieve significant profits. However, the acquisition will improve the performance of both banks since Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has a history of turning around the performance of big companies.
By spearheading the acquisition of HSBC bank, Luiz continued to add crème to his already fat CV in the banking industry. Bradesco has almost tripled its market share to overtake their rivals and competitors, Banco Itau. Besides, his performance also earned him a name as one of the best banking leaders in Brazil.
It is for this reason that the former chairman, Mr. Lazaro Brandao appointed Luiz as his successor when he resigned from the bank towards the end of last year. Trabuco’s position as the president of Banco Bradesco president was taken over by Octavio de Lazari who previously served as the chairman of Bradesco Seguros.

It may have taken more than 14 years, but Jeff Glass is looking like he is with the NHL to stay. Appearing in a total of six games since making his debut with the Blackhawks on December 29, 2017, Jeff Glass earned his first NHL victory after allowing three goals on 45 shots, ultimately defeating the the Edmonton Oilers. It looks as if this victory insures that Glass has a roster spot with the Blackhawks for the rest of the year. This might just be what the oldest rookie in the NHL deserves after persevering in the minor leagues and Russia for so long.

The name Joe Arpaio has a strange effect on many in the U.S. as the very mention of his name can reveal much about the political ideology of an individual.
To conservatives, former Maricopa County Sheriff is something of a precursor to U.S. President Donald Trump and his views on immigrants entering from Mexico and further afield; the work of the man who styled himself as the “toughest sheriff in America” has placed him in direct conflict with the former owners of Village Voice Media, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who have personally felt the wrath of Joe Arpaio.

In 2018, the name of Joe Arpaio has once again made headlines after the former Arizona law enforcement official declared his desire to run for office as a Senate Representative for the state. This decision came after Arpaio was pardoned by President Trump towards the end of 2017, a decision recently upheld by the Supreme Court in a decision journalists Larkin and Lacey saw as an obvious one waiting to happen in the current political atmosphere.
Larkin and Lacey played a key role in bringing the actions of Sheriff Arpaio to the attention of the people of the Phoenix area of Arizona and the wider world through their own investigative reporting and that of their team at the Phoenix New Times. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/ and http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey
The journalists were already well-respected in the journalism industry for their ownership of the Village Voice Media group when they published an investigation into the ownership of commercial properties by the Arpaio family worth an estimated $700,000 when the annual salary for the Maricopa Sheriff was just $78,000 in 2004.
The Phoenix New Times was just one of a nationwide chain of local newspapers owned by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey which they recently sold and had already become a major part of the switch to news delivery Online with a strong subscription base.
After almost three years of investigations into the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department including revelations about a concentration camp style tent city holding prisoners, Larkin and Lacey were arrested when they published details of an illegal and unconstitutional subpoena served to them from Maricopa County.
The two journalists were eventually arrested in a third-world style operation conducted by plainclothes Maricopa County detectives in unmarked vehicles carrying Mexican license plates.
After their illegal imprisonment, the journalists were awarded $3.75 million in compensation which they used to establish the Frontera Fund fighting for the rights of immigrant groups along the U.S. border with Mexico.
The pardon of Joe Arpaio by Trump was met with scorn by both Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey as the two campaigners for minority group rights had expected the decision to be made and believe the former Sheriff had hung his hat with the President to ensure he received his pardon.
Before he was even sentenced, former Sheriff Arpaio was not expected to serve any jail time for his conviction of contempt of court which would lead to his loss of the position of Sheriff of Maricopa County after 24 years.
Joel Friant is a small business owner who lives in Corpus Christi, Texas. He has been an entrepreneur throughout his professional career which started out with him in the real estate industry, both doing home remodeling projects and selling homes for clients. He has also been in the mortgage lending business as well as flipping homes for a profit. Additionally, he has written articles for publication about how to succeed in business and life in general.
It’s in the food industry, though, that Joel Friant has found his greatest success. In 1995 he opened the doors for a restaurant concept he had, serving Thai food as fast food. He also used his love for habanero peppers around this time to launch The Habanero Shaker. At the time he was living in Washington state and this product was successfully launched in several grocery chains there.
For several years Joel Friant had moved on to other industries and businesses but people who knew him kept asking him about his habanero product. He took a course that taught everything you need to know to successfully sell a product online. Matching his interest in online sales and his interest in habanero peppers led to him re-launching his product as The Original Habanero Shaker. It can now be found on Amazon as well as on eBay.
Joel Friant has The Original Habanero Shaker made in the United States. The container contains 100% habanero flakes with no preservatives, artificial colors, or flavors added. As he points out, a habanero pepper rates at 200,000 on the Scoville heat scale which means that it’s really hot, but not so hot that it’s oppressive. They also contain capsaicin which, among other benefits, is a natural painkiller.
Habanero peppers are also very healthy to eat, as Joel Friant likes to point out to people. It can help people lose weight and it also kills unhealthy bacteria. It can help with ulcers, including preventing them, due to how it interacts with the stomach lining. Additionally, it is has a large amount of both vitamins A and C.

The Oxford Club promotes their activity by publishing monthly newsletters, offering investment research services, and trading recommendation. Overseas clients have the option to participate in investment excursions, seminars, and symposiums alongside ordinary members.
The Secret the Success
An insight on achieving good returns is stated by Karim Rahemtulla in a recent news article known as “The Ultimate Income Checklist.” The Oxford Club buys stocks at huge discounts, compared to the original price, or receives money for examining the change in prices. They’ve had success in major companies such as Wells Fargo, Southwest Airlines, Phillips 66 and U.S Steel. However, users would have to set-up a stock trading account to participate in exchanging stocks. It requires a regular stock trading account and adjusting client services through a personal broker. Aside from the standard requirements, there’s more flexibility towards choosing the level or type of trade account. Rahemtulla recommends the level 5 account, a premium that gives the clients the ability to invest a small amount of capital towards a trade and sell puts of the broker’s money.
Rahemtulla is an option strategist at the Oxford Club and recommends these strategies to avoid losing money because of greed:
