Founders of The Frontera Fund Chime in on Arpaio’s Pardon

U.S. District Judge Susan Bolton has validated the pardon of Joe Arpaio by President Donald Trump. Aside from proving that the justice system is a joke, the pardoning has one purpose: to satisfy Trump’s fan-base.

“Trump’s approval rating is down around 30 percent,” said Michael Lacey, one of the victims of Arpaio. “And that 30 percent is going to like what he did.” he explains.

Along with Jim Larkin, Michael Lacey was arrest for an article that they wrote in their newspaper, Phoenix New Times. The two had been publishing investigative pieces on Arpaio for years, but Arpaio finally believed he had found a way to arrest them when they published content pertaining to court issued subpoenas.

Ultimately, a judge decided that a subpoena recipient has the right to publicly discuss the material in a subpoena. All charges against Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were dropped, and Lacey and Larkin decided to sue. Their efforts were successful, and they were awarded $3.75 million.

“We were a constant thorn in his side,” said Jim Larkin “I think that’s why Michael and I got arrested.” he proclaimed.

Arpaio’s lack of awareness towards the constitution isn’t only reserved for journalists. For years, Arpaio has targeted the Hispanic community. Lacey says that Arpaio’s persecution of Hispanics didn’t begin until 2005.

Previously, Arpaio tried other methods to make a name for himself. Only a year after getting elected he installed what he called a concentration camp in the middle of the Arizona desert. Prisoners in his custody had been beaten, tortured, chained to beds, killed, and committed suicide. Many believe that the charge of criminal contempt of court wasn’t enough.

For these reasons, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have taken the money received from the settlement and put it towards altruistic causes. The Frontera Fund was created as a counterweight to the damage caused by Joe Arpaio and other politicians like him. Read more: Jim Larkin | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

The Frontera Fund is a fundraising organization that works along-side a large variety of charities. The Frontera Fund works with organizations like ACLU of Arizona and The Arizona DREAM Act Coalition, to provide information and better lives for the immigrant community in Arizona.

After the lawsuit was settled, Lacey and Arpaio sold the Phoenix New Times in order to focus all of their efforts on a new paper. Front Page Confidential was created with the intention of educating and informing the American citizens.

The newspaper publishes all of its content with the intention of informing its readers of important matters relating to civil rights, migrant rights, and politicians. With Arpaio announcing his plan to run for Senate in 2018, Front Page Confidential will be just one of the organizations standing in his way.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco: Bradesco Appoints New President

As the residing Chief Executive Officer of Banco Bradesco S.A., Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi is staying at his executive position until at least March 12, 2018. Being at the head of Banco Bradesco for 9 years, position changes had to occur roughly one year before his ten-year anniversary as CEO. The bank will be bringing in new leadership at this date.

Banco Bradesco is undergoing a new age, where incoming President Octavio de Lazari Junior will be moving up into the postion of CEO. Both of these individuals have a long, postive relationship with the bank, this will only change slightly as this new move is being made. Ending the year of 2017 with revenues in the amount of $76.3 billion Real, it’s hard to say that Banco Bradesco endured much of a struggle during this time.

Although the prior year witnessed growth in this particular sector, there is still a movement happening between Trabuco and Lazari Junior. Many are optimistic of the economy for 2018, as sub interest rates, very calm inflation, and GDP growth between the amounts of 2% and 3% makes a tough argument for a CEO change. However, Lazari does stress how Bradesco has to do better than the years prior. One thing is certain, Lazari and Trabuco both believe in the importance of having good pension reform for the overall benefit of the company.

Trabuco talks about how the choice of the incoming president took a while to reach a final selection. Lazari happens to be one of seven, the initial choice was weighed by the many experiences that Octavio Lazari has for choice. In the late 1990’s, he was working in the credit area, and his other promotions starting in 2010 made the choice clear for Luiz Trabuco’s successor.

Luiz Trabuco started his banking career and major work at Bradesco on April 17, 1969. Trabuco was also the Managing Director of Banco Bradesco S.A. during March 1999 and when he had much success in the Managing department, he moved to numberous positions throughout. As he was involved heavily in Private Pension plans, as he was also the President of the National Association for Private Pension Plans. During the dates of August 1994 to August 2000 he held this position. It gave him reason to talk about the continuation of pension reform. Octavio de Lazari Junior will accept the position on March 12, 2018, and Luiz Trabuco’s days as CEO will finally come to a close.

Fabletics Reaching Out To Further Audience With Reverse Showrooming

Fabletics is one of the very few successful athleisure brands out there. Even though there are many brands out there that are offering athleisure wear for women, Fabletics apparently has won the war by a large margin since the time it entered the market. The company has been providing budget clothing for its customers so that they do not have to think twice about their finance before buying what they want to.

 

Fabletics keeps the costs low but ensures that the quality of the products is not compromised. Moreover, the company has Kate Hudson as one of the co-owners, which is why the product line of the business is highly fashionable, stylish, and designed to look cool. Kate Hudson is also responsible for bringing limited collection clothing to Fabletics, mostly inspired by other well-known celebrities. One of the recent collections to be introduced that got hugely popular among the people was the Demi Lovato Collection.

 

Fabletics has been jumping the ranks of popularity in the fashion world due to its focus on the customers’ requirements. These days’ customers are not only looking for quality products but also a brand they can relate to. It is what Fabletics has become in the last few years. As an aspirational brand that delivers value for money products, Fabletics has been able to garner over 1.2 million VIP members who pay monthly fees to receive three monthly products from the company. It is a very reasonable arrangement that has won the hearts of many customers. Fabletics’ turnover has been steadily rising, and in the last quarter, it has reached $250 million.

 

For the company that was launched as an experimental startup, Fabletics has come a long way. The company focuses on understanding what the target audience is looking for and uses data analytics to know exactly that. The data-driven approach towards business has helped the company sync in with the evolving market. Even huge e-commerce brand like Amazon has faced challenges from Fabletics in the athleisure category as it sales sink. Recently, the company announced that it would be opening physical stores across the country, and already has nearly twenty stores in different strategic locations. It has helped the company to penetrate the market and reach out to a wider audience. As per the surveys, opening physical stores as a part of the reverse showroom technique has been highly helpful for the firm and has added revenue to the company.

Born and raised in Austin, Texas, Dr. Jennifer Walden is a compassionate philanthropist and one of the very few female board-certified plastic surgeons. Dr. Walden focuses on the overall happiness of her patients and is known for her compassion and commitment to quality care.

Being a minority in the field of aesthetics has given Dr. Walden a platform to empower other women. She believes that women can achieve all things, in all areas of life. This belief, and quotes from “Lean In Women, Work and the Will to Lead”, a book by Sheryl Sandberg, have both served as inspiration for her to continue to pursue her dreams.

Moved by her parent’s compassion, and eager to follow in their footsteps, she earned her undergraduate degree in Biology at the University of Texas and immediately applied to medical school upon graduation. Although she was originally waitlisted, she would not be discouraged. Not only did she earn her spot at the University of Texas Medical Branch, she also graduated salutatorian in her class.

After completing her residency, Dr. Walden accepted a fellowship in aesthetic surgery at the Manhattan Eye, Ear and Throat Hospital, where she worked for almost eight years before opening her own practice. Shortly after entering the world of entrepreneurship, Dr. Walden felt she was ready for a family of her own. With so much of her focus being placed on her career, dating hadn’t quite made the top of her priority list. A woman of determination, she began exploring other options to start her family. With the help of in-vitro fertilization, she gave birth to twin boys, Rex and Houston. Shortly after the birth of her sons, Dr. Walden returned to Austin to be close to her family. With the help of her close-knit support system, she was able to establish another successful practice, right in her hometown, and what Dr. Walden knows.
