On the evening of Oct. 18, 2017, Village Voice media executives Mike Lacy and Jim Larkin were arrested by armed Maricopa County Sheriff’s Deputies. The deputies, part of Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s “Selective Enforcement Unit,” forcibly removed the men from their homes in handcuffs and placed in black SUVs with dark tint and Mexican license plates. They were later booked separately at different Arpaio jails.
It was later revealed that Arpaio instigated the arrests after he became outraged that the Phoenix New Times had uncovered many of his misdeeds. The newspaper reported on how the self-dubbed “America’s Toughest Sheriff” anti-Mexican fear mongering in Arizona.
While some publications routinely ignored Arpaio and likened him to the benign crazy uncle who shows up for Thanksgiving, Phoenix New Times reported on the sheriff’s office rampant financial irregularities and mismanagement; on retaliatory actions against anyone who challenged his authority; mistreatment and deaths inside his jails; racial profiling and unlawful detaining of Latinos and substandard health conditions.
The crime Lacey and Larkin committed in Arpaio’s eyesight was penning a cover story in Phonix New Times outlining how the sheriff’s allies at the Maricopa County Attorney’s Office violated the Constitution by issuing grand jury subpoenas seeking information about newspaper writers, readers and editors. Instead of cooperating, Lacey and Larkin wrote an expose about it.
After they were arrested, a national outcry ensued. Both Larkin and Lacey were released within 24 hours and the charges dropped.
Lacey and Larkin’s illegal detention became the center of a First Amendment court battle. In a 2012 ruling, the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals stated that there was a direct assault on the First Amendment and public officials had every intention of stiffing the New times.
The court also ruled that the subpoenas were actually invalid because regular legal procedures were not followed. Both men were also arrested without probable cause.
In 2013, Lacey and Larkin received a settlement of $3.7 million.
Lacey and Larkin used the money for the Frontera Fund, an initiative that helps individuals in the Hispanic community fight racism and civil rights abuses in Arizona.
The funds were quietly distributed during the 2014 Arizona midterm elections.
“Sheriff Joe Arpaio has demonized the Hispanic community in this state for years,” said Lacey. “I think the people in the state of Arizona are better than this.”
Lacey and Larkin Assist the Victims of Joe Arpaio
Joe Arpaio was convicted of contempt of court in the Summer of July 2017, but was pardoned by President Trump.
This has left the victims of Arpaio distraught and furious. Even though the victims were denied justice by President Trump, they aren’t completely without a voice.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, who are also victims of Arpaio, created The Frontera Fund. By using the fund, Lacey and Larkin intend to assist all of the people hurt by Arpaio during his time as sheriff of Maricopa County. The Frontera Fund specializes in assisting the Hispanic community. Lacey and Larkin accomplish this by donating time and cash to charities such as 1070, Aliento, Arizona DREAM Act Coalition, and many more.
With the money they were awarded from the illegal arrest perpetrated by Arpaio, they also created a new newspaper. As the former owners of The Phoenix New Times, they have an extensive history in the publication industry. Their new paper Front Page Confidential is a politically focused paper that educates its readers on the subject of political corruption. Content in their paper consists of not only Joe Arpaio but other instances of individuals abusing their political power.
By using their two new organizations they intend to keep Arpaio out of public office.

Mitt Romney, a former presidential candidate for the Republican party, recently needed prostate surgery to tackle a tumor before it developed into something major; the fact that he has publicly announced this recently shows that he most likely will be running for Utah’s senate seat. Dr. Thomas Ahlering was Mitt Romney’s surgeon for the operation, which ended in success and the tumor was removed. Dr. David Samadi took this opportunity to give information about prostate cancer.
— Dr. David Samadi (@drdavidsamadi) February 22, 2018
Dr. David Samadi is known for many achievements and titles, including Chief of Robotic Surgery in New York City, Chairman of Urology, and the Professor of Urology at Hofstra School of Medicine for his innovative accomplishments. Dr. Samadi’s background is quite remarkable as well; he fled Iran in 1979 to complete his education and studied at an abundance of schools, all furthering his career in medicine. He is known for his amazing new theories and ways of dealing with and treating cancers at an early stage that is helpful to his patients. He pays attention to the details instead of trying to just take in as many patients as possible.
3/5 of men 65 and older develop prostate cancer, averaging to the age of 66. When faced with this type of cancer, a decision has to be made on whether to go through radiation or surgery. Dr. Samadi stated that he always looks at the negatives and positives for each patient, but that he usually prefers surgery over radiation if the cancer is only in the prostate gland; one of the reasons is that the general success rate is higher in surgery under that condition and that the possibility of another cancer becomes higher after radiation. Dr. Samadi also commented, patients treated with radiation are twice as likely to die from prostate cancer and one- and-a-half times more likely to die sooner than men with had prostate cancer treated with surgery.”
When faced with prostate cancer, the best thing to do is to consult with a surgeon experienced in dealing with prostate cancer (who also has bountiful successful surgeries) to better decide what choice is best for each individual. Different treatments provide different effects afterward, so it’s best to be prepared by knowing the details of the surgeon’s performance.

The struggle to get the universal human rights implemented have been going on for decades now. Despite the United Nations passing the human rights charter in 1947, the charter is still far away from being obeyed by pope of all walks of life. There are numerous cases of human rights violations that are still happening all over the world. Human rights have not been fully achieved as they should be.
Human rights had been passed with the intention of reclaiming back the human dignity after the mass killings that were witnessed after the world war one and two. There was an urgent need for the humanity to be saved from senseless killings. This is what led to the united charter on human rights. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | LinkedIn
According to the charter, every human being is protected by law from acts of discrimination. This is something that have been established by law and should therefore be obeyed by all.
Human rights are also incorporated as part of the constitution. In a world where acts such as racial discrimination are still to be eliminated, there have been numerous cases of people who have been discriminating immigrants in their countries for no good reason.
Being an immigrant does not mean that one is illegally in the county. After all even if they are illegally in the country, the law should be used in the right manner. It is not the responsibility of any citizen to take law into their own hands.
Every member of the society is protected by the human rights charter and therefore even an illegal migrant they should be handled in a human way that respects their rights. For many years, undocumented workers in many states across the United States have been a target for human discrimination.

They have been discriminated by being put through laws that do not respect their rights as human being. They have been treated as slaves by being put through working conditions that are obviously inhumane and consequently against the human rights. The move is wrong and should be eliminated from the face of the earth as quickly as possible.

For the purpose of creating a bearable economic environment for corporations, a lot of factors have to be addressed. Jeremy Goldstein has been a onlooker to the consequences that such situations can lead to. This lawyer has gained a lot of knowledge and experience while working with the best and largest corporations such as Bank of America, Verizon, and Golden Sachs. Mr. Goldstein puts this knowledge and skills into use by offering advice on the way to handle the use of Earnings per Share, EPS, and other incentive-based programs. The Earnings per Share are a positive thing when you put in hand the way employee’s incentives are handled.
EPS is a major influencer in stock price as it drives shareholders to either buy or sell. Most importantly, it offers an incentive for companies to improve the amount they pay out per employee. Studies have shown that companies can become more successful by including EPS in the overall pay structure. On the other hand, shares and trading have a very viable nature, and this can allow entities to weight EPS to a disadvantage. EPS’ opponents have made it clear that using EPS in corporations can result to favoritism.
According to other opponents, EPS only offers short-term profitability, and therefore it cannot offer a sustainable way to promote a company’s corporate growth. Mr. Jeremy Goldstein recommends a settlement between the suggested actions of anti- and pro- EPS proponents. Finding a way to hold CEOs and other executives of companies responsible for their actions is the best move, rather than doing away with pay per performance

George H. Bucher envisioned smart homes in an article that talked about technological advancements that would change people’s homes. True to his word, technology has not only transformed homes but the whole world. Through the combination of technology and real estate, smart homes emerged. They use mobile or desktop computers connected to the internet to control house equipment like lights, locks and cooking appliances making life more comfortable. However, these smart homes have their share of shortcomings. Since they are equipped with voice technology and programmed to react to specific voice commands, it becomes a challenge to use for those with speech problems and those with foreign accents.
