Lacey and Larkin speak about the crimes committed by Joe Arpaio

Monday, June 25th, 2018

After the pardon of the former sheriff of Maricopa County Joe Arpaio by President Trump, many human rights activists were disappointed by the decision. Arpaio was a rogue officer who spent years in office executing plans of stopping illegal immigration in his country through illegal means. In implementing his plans. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/ and http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/

He tortured hundreds of people who were innocent. Some of the people who were arrested and held in his private concentration camps lost their lives due to lack of medical care, beating, and strangulation. The highest casualty of the activities of Arpaio were women and children. Arpaio together with his officers carried out their role with no regard for the rule of law. All he cared for was that immigrants had no space to live in the country freely.

Maricopa County is located in Arizona. Arizona is at the border of the United States and Mexico. Due to this proximity and the number of opportunities in the United States being higher than in Mexico. A high number of people move to the United States in search of better means of livelihood.

Maricopa County is one of the counties which have the highest number of Latino immigrants. With the high number of immigrants came protestation from the natives who saw the problems they face as being caused by the high number of immigrants in the county.

What followed is the purge led by Joe Arpaio. Every illegal immigrant in the county was treated like a criminal. In fact, Joe Arpaio used the fight against illegal immigrants as a route to entrench activities that are tantamount to the human and civil rights violation. No immigrant was given a fair hearing. Everything that was happening was done in the manner he wanted.

He would order all immigrants to be placed in concentration camps awaiting deportation. The activities of the sheriff were illegal and against the constitution of the land. According to the law, human rights are universal. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

That means, even though you are not a citizen of the United States, you should never be treated in an inhumane way. This is where Joe Arpaio and his team erred, they took the matter personally and did what they wanted.

Joe Arpaio was a rogue officer who even went to the extent of harming anyone who attempted to stand in his way. When two journalists from Arizona started publishing information on the illegalities he was committing as a sheriff, he responded by intimidating them. First, they were denied access to county documents and then later arrested like thieves in the middle of the night.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were the founders of the Phoenix New Times, a paper that highlighted all the crimes he was committing while he was the sheriff. They publicized his stories so much that the issue became known countrywide.

When Arpaio ordered for the arrest of Lacey and Larkin, there was a barrage of condemnation on the step taken. The move was seen a clear violation of the First Amendment and the freedom of expression.

Stream Really Cares For All

Tuesday, May 1st, 2018

A least generous state just found the most generous giver, the philanthropist might not be the most generous by numbers but surely by heart, ranks among the top. This is the state of Texas and the unique activities and relationship that Stream Energy Patch is creating in that state. Philanthropy is not a matter of giving because you have so much but it is in essence giving because the other person has so little. These words are put into practice every day and it can be said confidently it is in the DNA of the company itself.

The news that Stream Energy Patch was starting a philanthropic arm in its working was greeted with enthusiasm and great admiration among the Texas resident, but everybody knew that would finally come to pass. The great philanthropic deeds and the culture that the company had built was only fair and right to formalize the whole philanthropic business. Formalizing they surely did and Stream Cares was finally born. A catchy name anyone would presume but it really speaks to the heart and soul of the company itself.

The patch cared when Hurricane Harvey brought 56 inches of rain with it and brought businesses and homes to their knees. When the whole world was watching helplessly, Stream jumped and spoke aloud for the Texas resident and said: “Stream cares”. Donating foodstuffs  and helping the homeless it showed its true nature.

The homeless children in Texas also know that Stream cares. The partnership with Hope Supply is a true testament to this great virtue. Stream Energy paid entrances for over 1000 children and covered for their meals at an annual local water event. To buttresses, this words Stream Energy has been giving much-needed supplies and donations for the past 4 years.

Red Cross has one or two to say whether Stream cares or not. The last 15000 dollars donation is something of a goodwill towards the organization. The victims from North Texas  are sure to raise their voices on this debate of Steam Energy and Steam Care. When the Tornado hit them in 2016 Steam Energy was there ready to lift them back to their feet. The partnership between the Salvation Army, Stream Energy associates and the company itself was something from a storybook. The company showed the meaning of philanthropy with operation Once In A Lifetime by helping the less fortunate veterans  proving once again Stream really cares.

Charity in the Aid of Autism through Autism Rocks

Monday, January 18th, 2016

There are various conditions that affect human beings but they are so rare to the point that not so many people know about them. Those people who know about them are mostly victims or people whose family members or relatives have been victims. It is for this reason that information about these rare conditions is not available in most health facilities or in the internet. One of those rare conditions is autism which a condition experienced from childhood which is characterized by difficulty in connecting with people through communication or through other activities. The main cause is a disorder in the development of the brains from the early age.
Being a rare condition, not so many people know about it and as a result resource centres have been set to help in the research of the condition so as to help those who have been affected by the condition. These resource centres conduct research on how to improve the lives of people living with autism since it is a permanent condition.
Other people have come up with charity organisations to help those suffering from the conditions through financial assistance. Example of those charitable organisations that have been formed to help people living with the condition with the condition is Autism Rocks which was founded by Sanjay Shah whose son is a victim of the condition. The organisation raises its money for the noble course through organising music gigs which people attend and the proceeds go towards helping in research on the condition.
Sanjay Shah is a British multimillionaire who moved to Dubai in 2009 and settled there. After his studies at King’s College University in UK, he worked for various firms before founding his own firm called Solo Capital which is an investment and brokerage firm in 2008. The firm grew to a point of hiring more than 100 financial experts.
His drive to support autism was when he was informed about his son having autism. As a way of helping the community, he funded various research centres before finally coming with the Autism Rocks which raises funds through hosting a number of international artists both in London and Dubai.

Andy Wirth runs past tragedy for a good cause

Friday, August 21st, 2015

 

Several years ago Andy Wirth was skydiving with his friends when his right arm was almost severed. An experienced skydiver, Wirth did not notice anything unusual in the conditions that turned a routine dive into a nearly fatal accident. Wirth was pushed off course, away from a safe landing, and into a vineyard, where a pole caught him in a major artery. Wirth experienced severe blood loss, and could have died without prompt medical care.

It was only due to excellent medical care, and the support of his family that Wirth has begun to recover. Since the accident Wirth has worked hard to regain strength in his arm, and get back to his previous level of physical fitness. Wirth’s ability as an athlete was an important part of his identity, and it was frustrating to struggle through tasks that used to feel natural.

Wirth has been inspired to put his pain behind him, and give back to the world. He has put together a team to participate in the 2015 IRONMAN Lake Tahoe, a triathlon. Wirth recruited a friend from college to bike, and a Navy SEALs he had become close with to swim. Wirth himself will be doing the running, with his arm brace. The team is called the Special Warfare Warrior team, and they are raising money for the Navy Seal Foundation.

The Navy SEAL foundation provides support to the community and families of brave individuals who defend our country. Throughout his rehabilitation Wirth became close with a group of Navy SEALs in his area. Their courage, dedication, and support was an important part of his recovery. You can give to the Navy SEAL foundation, and sponsor the Special Warfare Warrior Team by donating on crowdrise. The goal is to raise thirty-thousand dollars before the race next month. If you were inspired by Wirth’s story of survival and recovery please donate now.
