Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin and Their Passionate Drive to Fight Against Injustice Against Immigrants

There are many passionate people in our midst. Some of them we see in plain sight.Some of them are hidden, preferring to work in the background. Some of them are doing their best to change the wrong things and wrongdoings in the society.

Two of the most prominent people today who do their best to make sure that justice is served to where it is due are Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, the founders of FrontPage Confidential and the Frontera Fund.

The Joe Arpaio Pardon

One of the most striking news today about the two journalists above has something to do with the pardon of Joe Arpaio. You see, Joe Arpaio was instrumental in the career of Michael and Jim.

If it weren’t for him, there would probably no controversy at all, and there would be no urgency to create the news journal Front Page Confidential.

The two journalists’ involvement with Joe Arpaio happened when Joe, a former Sheriff, illegally detained the two journalists because he suspected them of illegal social activism in their region.

However, it should also be noted that the two journalists were already showing their adamant protest against what Joe Arpaio had been doing in their region. Joe Arpaio was said to be abusing his power, and the two journalists were exposing it.

With that said, Joe Arpaio was sentenced guilty because of a technicality issue in the court proceedings where he was filed with contempt. However, this verdict was not fully initiated because President Donald Trump pardoned Mr. Arpaio.

Asked for a response, Michael and Jim said that the act of pardon just shows that President Trump is just as corrupt as Joe Arpaio and is an indication of how corrupt the administration can be.

Lacey also added that one of the failures of the justice system is that it doesn’t hold accountable those who have been proven to have done a significant amount of wrong.

About Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey

We already know that the Michael and Jim are the two journalists who have shown an incredible amount of dedication for fighting for the rights of the immigrants.

They’re also the man behind the Frontera Fund, which is created using the money that they earned from the settlement amount that they gained after winning against the illegal detention and racial profiling case that was filed against Mr. Joe Arpaio.

Right now, the two journalists are also busy allocating the 3.75 million dollars of money that they got from the Maricopa County, where Joe Arpaio was the sheriff, to advocacies that help immigrants be protected from the abuses of state authorities.

In addition to the Frontera Fund, the two journalists are also managing the journal Front Page Confidential, a news website that covers all the different issues that threaten the first amendment, constitutional rights, and other human rights violations that should not be just left aside.

Truly, the illegal detention that Larkin and Lacey experienced had been used for the positive and had been a cause for initiating advocacies that will prevent others from suffering the same.

Robert Ivy Predicts The Collaboration Of Health Care And Architecture

According to Robert Ivy, CEO of the American Institute of Architects, architects now and in the future will work with the medical community to change how people interact with their environment in a much more healthier way. Consider the following facts. Greater than 35 percent of Americans are obese. No less than 34 percent of the nation’s population is overweight. Seventeen percent, or more, of the nation’s youth are obese. At least 10 percent of the population has diabetes, and another eight million are not even aware they are diabetic.
While these are all medical conditions, Robert Ivy thinks that architectural design can provide an answer to help combat chronic disease. “Design thinking” could be the answer. For example, architects can design health care facilities that inspire physical exercise. According to archdaily.com, architects can design structures so that they let in natural light. This can help increase productivity and attention. These changes reflect a new era of how architects and health care providers are beginning to work together.
MetroHealth Medical Center in Cleveland, Ohio is another example of architectural/health care collaboration. The center will incorporate a number of social activities, buy food from local urban farms, revamp parks and bike paths, and add fitness centers throughout the system.

The High Line of Manhattan’s Chelsea neighborhood is also working with architects to make the best use of space and land. This area is a vibrant public place that shares an elevated rail line. Consider the fact too that medical schools are beginning to push for training in undergraduate courses that teach architectural design. Architects can work with industry professionals to help design a better future for all of us. Tomorrow’s architect will work with policymakers who commit to building a better environment.
Climate change is likely to have a major influence on critical infrastructure as well. Robert Ivy and the American Institute of Architects feel that it is time to put policies in place that work that speak to human health and the changing environment. The American Institute of Architect’s mission is to help advance the qualify of life for Americans, and to protect the safety, health, and welfare of its citizens. The AIA formed in 1857.

The American Institute of Architects is one of the leading professional organizations in the world today. The organization was established with the focus on developing and improving the sector. Currently has a membership that is in excess of 90,000 people. Members of the American Institute of Architects will receive a wide range of benefits.

Louis Chenevert’s Rise to the Top and his Accomplishments

Louis Chenevert is considered one of the most influential businessmen in the world. The legacy he left in the UTC is a legendary one. Born in Montreal, Quebec, Louis Chenevert attended the HEC Montreal, which is affiliated with the University of Montreal. Here, he studied Production Management which he clearly not intended to let go to waste.

He got a job with General Motors immediately after school, where he worked for 14 years. In 1993, he was hired by an engine manufacturing company: Pratt & Whitney. During his time here, his hard work led to his promotion to the President of the Company. This is because during the time of his employment to the company, it was a recession period and he managed to improve the performance of the unit he was serving.

Pratt & Whitney was a subsidiary of the United Technologies Corporation (UTC). His performance as the President of Pratt & Whitney led to his nomination as the CEO of UTC. In UTC, he improved the value of the impressive shares of the firm to $117 which were initially $37 when he joined. He also made significant acquisitions in the firm that greatly improved the domination of UTC in the market.

While in UTC, Louis Chenevert knew that the only way he could achieve his goals in the company was through the assistance of the employees. This is why when other companies were busy conducting layoffs to maintain their businesses in the market, he moved the employees of UTC to Connecticut.

Aware of the rising Global Warming, Louis Chenevert took a step that he advised the other firms to take. He reduced the water consumption by 53% and the greenhouse gases emission by 26%. As a result, the products of UTC became eco-friendly and became marketable to other nations around the world.

During his reign, Louis Chenevert was awarded severally for his success. After his nomination as the CEO of UTC, the National Building Museum awarded him in 2009. In 2011, the HEC Montreal awarded him with a doctorate honoris causa. In the same year, the Space Technology magazine and the Aviation Week named him ‘’Person of the Year’’.
