There have been many groups in the United States that have dedicated resources and funds to fight for the rights of immigrants, refugees, and civil rights. They have persistently pursued implementation of human rights and standards that support policies which fight for civil and human rights.

Another one of the groups is called the Amazon watch located in San Francisco. The group operates In the Amazon basin, and its aim target is advancing the rights of indigenous people. It also has its focus on environmental organizations. There is also the Advocates for Human Rights who work on the local, regional and global level.

With a 30years presence in fighting for human rights, they aim to the lives of women, children, and immigrants. The ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project is also another active group. The project is committed to protecting the rights immigrants as well as human and civil rights. The project can carry this out since it runs the biggest legal action program countrywide through district court and the Supreme Court.

Among the groups mentioned above, the Lacey and Larking Frontera Fund has been on the forefront of advocating for equal human and civil rights across the country.

The Lacey and Larking Frontera Fund was started by two Journalists, Michel Lacey and Jim Larking, following their illegal detention by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa country. The detention was because they had an article that exposed the sheriff published. Jim and Michel later went through court proceeding which did not follow the due process.

It was because of this that they sued the Maricopa County and the got compensation with a settlement of 3.7 million dollars. They used the money to start the Lacey and Larking Frontera Fund. Michel and Jim through the fund advocate for the freedom of speech by the immigrants as well as supporting human and civil rights.

They have persistently emphasized the need of following the rule of law, and they spent most of their careers doing this. The Lacey and Lurking foundation now funds organizations that advocate for the rights of the immigrants across Arizona.

Among the foundations that the Lacey and Larking fund founded are the American Civil Liberty Union of Arizona (ACLU of Arizona), The Raul Castro Institute, the Florence Immigrant, and Refugee Rights Projects, the Arizona Justice project, Justice for Immigrants and Families Project and the Tucson Samaritans/Los Samaritanos project.

The two Phoenix-based voice media executives have remained resilient in their fight for civil and human rights and a fair justice system for immigrants all across Arizona. After their ordeal, thousands of people have benefited through the organizations and the movements that they have funded so far. Jim and Michel continue to make a positive impact throughout Arizona.

Nihiwatu resort had been a remote paradise for those surfers who had been looking for waves in the Indian Ocean that were 20 feet high. Its previous owners were Claude and Petra Graves. They had arrived on this island in 1988 via Berlin, New Jersey along with South Africa. They camped on this beach for many years before they built this resort on this small island. But their business dream was about to collapse due to the financial crisis in Asia besides the social welfare issues of the Sumbanese islanders.

Due to these challenges, they worked along with a technology entrepreneur and tribal elders in order to develop a plan for the future of the island. This resulted in the formation of the Sumba Foundation in 2001. This organization relies on donations from visitors as well as corporates in order to support any kind of humanitarian aid efforts. The volunteers work in order to provide drinking water, reducing malaria and offering educational as well as economic support to the local communities.

Once Chris Burch came to know that the Graves wanted to expand their resort and were looking for investors, he acquired this resort.   Additional article on bjtonline.com.

The history of Latin America has seen much socialist hand-wringing and populist platitudes mouthed with the enthusiasm only genuine ideologues can muster. What it has not seen is real progress. This can be seen in the current situation of Venezuela, where a populist government, closely related to the wildly popular demagogue Hugo Chavez, has failed even to meet its citizen’s most basic demands, such as the ability to stay fed and clothed. This unfortunate history of demagoguery, populist incantations and Marxist wealth redistribution has been a feature of the Latin American governance model for as long as history books have been written.

However, certain Latin American countries have been able to break free of this cycle of governmental instability. Brazil is one such example. The country has been able to create an entire class of highly innovative entrepreneurs and a market environment in which those entrepreneurs have been able to freely operate, creating vast wealth for all and fomenting the creation of real social capital of the kind seen in developed countries.

One example of such an entrepreneur is Jose Auriemo Neto, CEO of real estate development firm, JHSF Participaoes, one of the country’s largest. Auriemo Neto has undertaken such ambitious projects as the construction of Sao Paolo Catarina Executive Airport, the first private airport in the Sao Paulo metro area, featuring an 8000 foot runway, long enough to easily accommodate the intercontinental-range jets of the globetrotting elite. Auriemo Neto has long understood that the ability of world cities like Sao Paulo to attract the global rich is one of the greatest tools of real economic development that a city or state can possibly weild.

This ambitious project perfectly illustrates Auriemo Neto’s philosophy of creating developments that will attract economic activity and foment the creation of jobs wherever they are built. Auriemo Neto continues building projects that create vast numbers of permanent jobs and an influx of global capital into the local communities where he is building.

One of the most remarkable things about Bob Reina is how humble he is throughout all of his success he has had as CEO and founder of Talk Fusion. This is a company that has won awards. As a matter of fact, they won the 2016 Communications Solutions Product of the Year Award. This was a huge honor for them, and when it was time to thank people, Bob Reina made sure to give the proper credit to the IT team. He firmly believes they are the ones that have made Talk Fusion run as smoothly as it has run over the past decade. They are on the cutting edge of what is hip, what is modern, and what is happening out there in the tech world.

 

Bob Reina, in his own right, is a man that has been able to stand strong on his own two feet. He firmly believes in what he does and he firmly believes in Talk Fusion. He would not have created the company if he did not feel that way. It is why he talks about being on a mission to change lives. Even though he is humble, it does not mean he is just going to sit still and let things happen out there. He knows the power and the impact Talk Fusion can have on the world. He is well aware of it. Because he is well aware of it, he wants to put that to good use. He wants to make sure the product is in as many people’s hands as possible.

 

He also wants to make sure that those that use Talk Fusion get the most out of it. After all, this is a product that allows people the chance to work from home, which is something that should never be taken for granted. When people work from home, they don’t have to deal with cliques, politics, and the nonsense that many jobs bring with them. They can control their own destiny.

 

Right now, Talk Fusion has , and I would encourage people to hop on board right now.

 


Sweetgreen is the high end salad chain that is sweeping the Northeast and making a name for itself along the way. Established by a trio of newly graduated college students, led by Co-CEO Nathaniel Ru, Sweetgreen has established themselves as a restaurant that is intending on building a legacy. Ru says, “We’re creating a brand that stands for something. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: http://observer.com/2016/04/jobs-report-sweetgreen-co-founder-jonathan-neman-lives-the-sweet-life/

We want to feed more people better food.” This mindset has helped to lead the Sweetgreen revolution, but the work of the founders has been there every step of the way. We’ll take a closer look at what Nathaniel Ru has been able to accomplish in just a few short years.

Nathaniel Ru and his co-founders all attended Georgetown University as classmates. It was there that they took a class about entrepreneurship. They put their head together and slowly modeled the concept of Sweetgreen while attending school, aiming to try and take it live after leaving with their degree. Read more: Nathaniel Ru | LinkedIn and Nathaniel Ru Blazes a Trail in The Height Food Industry | Affiliate Dork

Along the way the Sweetgreen team managed to establish some ground rules for their success together, focusing primarily on changing the fundamental way that companies are managed and what they stand for.

Early on it was clear that Ru and his team were focused on doing something special. They didn’t want to become the next McDonalds. Ru says, “We don’t believe in big corporate headquarters. We wanted to decentralize our headcount.”

Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet joined Nathaniel Ru as the core three people involved in making Sweetgreen what it is today. What makes them special is not just their outlook on Sweetgreen, but their outlook on life.

The entire founding team comes from a family of first generation immigrants. They used their unique outlook on life as newcomers to the United States in order to inform how they wanted to approach building up the company.

Fundamentally what makes Sweetgreen so successful is that Ru and his team understood early on that there was a market for healthy eating at a fastfood environment.

They knew from their own experiences as a college student that healthy eating was notoriously tough to do ‘on the go’. So that is why they set out to make Georgetown’s campus one of their first homes.

They knew early on that survival as a brand was going to happen when they decided to establish their first location in 2007. Now, ten years later, there are more than 40 Sweetgreen locations throughout the Northeast.
