Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

The sheriff has gained infamy across the country for a variety of heinous acts including wrongfully detaining immigrants and the wrongful imprisonment of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

Nearly a decade ago, a dozen Maricopa County Selective Enforcement agents arrived on the doorsteps of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. Under the direction of Joe Arpaio, the agents took the men into custody and imprisoned them for 26 days. They were charged with disclosing information about a grand-jury investigation.

Both men were involved in the local newspaper, the Village Voice Media. Lace was the executive editor and Larkin was the CEO. They both published a piece on the same day they were arrested. They both discussed the probe of the grand jury in a Village Voice Media article in the Pheonix New Times. What they did not realize was that the grand-jury had been investigating them.

Arpaio had become incensed with the latest coverage of the aggressive law enforcement tactics he promoted with his department. He took the sheriff’s office in 1992 and had become infamous for his acts against the Tent City, immigrants, and women.

The United States District Judge revealed to the sheriff as early as 2011 that is was against the constitutional law to detain an immigrant due to suspicion. Especially when there is no evidence to suggest wrongdoing, the sheriff could not hold that person.

There were a variety of instances that happened before 2011 that eventually rose to the surface of public knowledge. Nearly a decade ago, there was a lawsuit filed against the sheriff for the conditions of the inmates in Tent City. He was also charged for violating the rights of a variety of immigrant groups.

However, Arpaio denied the charges and continued working with his harsh and inhumane tactics. He continued to encourage his staff to pursue racial profiling of Latinos to hand them over to immigration services. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin eventually began investigating to raise awareness of his unfair treatment.

This investigation led to the two men being arrested. Larkin and Lacey filed a lawsuit against the sheriff for malpractice and corruption. Eventually, the case settled for $3.7 million.

Lacey believes that Trump pardoned the sheriff because he needed to appeal to the nationalists who view the sheriff as heroic.

Milan Kordestani Writer, Equestrian And Farmer

Milan Kordestani is still attending school in the San Francisco Bay area but is already a journalist for the Huffington Post, an acclaimed equestrian and organic farm owner. His determination for success can be summarized in a story from his youth.

At a young age, Milan Kordestani began receiving horse riding lessons. One of his first lessons saw him launched from his horse and hurt lying upon the ground. He sprung up from the ground, took the horse by the reins and got back up. He rode the horse back to the horse riding school when other children would’ve been terrified of the animal that just hurt them. His instructors were astonished.

It is Milan Kordestani’s a deep respect for animals that inspired him to found Milan Farms. His California-based farm raises poultry in a humane and organic way. The farm sells eggs, saffron and other herbs to the public. Milan believes that consumers will always choose the humane, transparent and pure option when given a choice. That’s why he brings his organically produced products to market in a transparent way.

His growing of saffron is a bit controversial. Milan Farms grows saffron hydroponically on microfiber sponges. This flies in the face of traditional saffron growing but the CEO and founder of the Farms like to stress that they believe in innovation. That’s why they continue to research the best hydroponic way to grow the delicate spice. The people at Milan Farms are currently working on salinity levels to produce the best saffron possible.

Milan Kordestani continued with his equestrian accomplishments after his first few lessons. He was able to win the first leg of the Triple Crown in 2015 using his own horse, CH His Supreme Reflection. He would then follow that up with fourth place at the World Championship Horse Show. He then achieved a third-place at the American Royal which is the third leg of the Triple Crown. And 2016 saw his most impressive equestrian accomplishment when he took home second place at the World Championship Horse Show in the Five Gaited Show Pleasure Division in his age group.

Peter Briger, Fortress’s investment trendsetter in the credit industry

When it comes to listing top asset management companies in the world, Fortress investment group never misses a spot. In fact, it tops that list thanks to its massive contributions, broad client base and incredible success. Ever since its inception in 1998, Fortress continues to set the pace for other asset management companies and was even the first large-scale private firm to go public during its IPO in the NYSE in 2007. Currently, the asset management giant boasts over $43 billion in assets under its management and serves more than 1700 investors as clients under its wing and is a source of income to over 900 people.

Nevertheless, all this success has not been handed to Fortress investment group on a silver platter but is thanks to its impressive management team led by Wes Edens, Peter Briger and Randal Nardone. The three principals boast remarkable career backgrounds as well, and that explains why they continue to steer the firm to greener pastures.

They use a unique strategy in which each principal heads a segment they are best in. For instance, ever since he joined Fortress in 2002, Peter Briger has been head of the credit segment, a department he has helped steer to incredible levels of success thanks to his exemplary leadership skills and vast experience and knowledge acquired from his previous ventures. Before he joined FIG, Peter Briger had been a partner at Goldman, Sachs & Co for close to two decades. It is during this period that Briger acquired the extensive skills he has now by purchasing assets considered worthless and selling them at a profitable price when the market stabilises. Additionally, he also attended various committees such as the Japan Executive committee which further helped empower him with more knowledge and skills in managing credit and illiquid investments.

Ever since he took over the reins of Fortress’s credit department, Peter Briger has done nothing but bring success to the firm. Today, Briger has over 300 individuals under his wing and using his unique leadership skills, helped raise approximately $4.7 billion for the company’s fund dubbed Fortress credit opportunities. Peter Briger has achieved many other milestones for Fortress, a factor that has seen him gain massive returns. For instance, with a net worth of two billion, Mr Briger now ranks 403 on Forbes List of self-made individuals and is also listed on Forbes top 400 business professionals in the United States.

How HCR Wealth Advisors Helps Its Clients

As the team at HCR Wealth Advisors informed their clients in January 2018, 2017 was a very unusual year when it comes to volatility in the stock markets. Many years see pullbacks of -10% or more in the stock market, while in 2017 the biggest pullback was only -3%. That indicates that people should expect the markets to return to form in 2018 with likely much more volatility in store. HCR Wealth Advisors is based in Los Angeles, California.

HCR Wealth Advisors writes that no one knows when or why the next major pullback will occur. It could be concerns about bond rates going up, some international situation, or a change in how the White House deals with China. Having said that, the firm writes that investors should stay optimistic because the U.S. and global economies are doing well lately. The best thing to do when there is a big pullback is to stay the course because it, too, shall pass.

HCR Wealth Advisors offers its clients opportunities to become educated about investing. This includes domestic investing, international investing, and bonds among other assets. They regularly communicate with their clients and seek to establish a life-long relationship with them.

HCR Wealth Advisors (@hcrwealth) expects the US Federal Reserve to continue to increase interest rates going forward. The Fed only controls short-term interest rates and it is expected to increase these in 2018 three times. The team at HCR Wealth Advisors expect that US interest rates will continue to be well below their long-term average.

HCR Wealth Advisors develops personalized strategies to help them reach their financial goals. They also put in place measures designed to protect their clients from risk based on their risk tolerance profile. Each client receives a personalized financial strategy, designed to meets their needs and goals going forward.

HCR Wealth Advisors: Financial Planning Begins with Client Relationship

It is one thing to attain wealth and another to manage it. It can take a hundred years to amass wealth but only a few seconds to lose it. This is where HCR Wealth Advisors comes in. HCR Wealth Advisors is a registered investment advisory firm located in Los Angeles, California. It focuses on educating clients on investment strategies, developing strategies to help its customers attain set financial goals, and help protect them against financial risk. HCR Wealth Advisors offers services mainly in insurance services, financial services, consulting business services and wealth management. It was founded by its CEO, Greg Heller.

Isn’t money managing the same as wealth advisory?

HCR Wealth Advisors makes it clear that money managing revolves around asset allocation with performance-based goals, chasing bonds and stocks without calculated reasoning or strategy. In short, many money managers tend not to deliver on their promises. This failure results in bitter clients who spend their hard-earned money only to incur losses. Wealth advisors, however, take a holistic approach by investing in the client. It thus becomes a relationship-oriented endeavor. They familiarize themselves with the client, their existing financial portfolio, financial goals and potential events that could affect their financial situation.

How it Works

Senior Managing Director at HCR Wealth Advisors, Steve Weinberger, disapproves the trend of companies working with clients without first coming up with a plan. HCR Wealth Advisors designs a financial plan and strategy first to make the best business decisions. He says that many companies opt not to do this since they do not get reimbursed for it. However, HCR Wealth Advisors chooses to start with this orientation in order to serve their clients better and more effectively. The company has a seven-step process when financially strategizing. The steps include;

  • Laying it all out, so as to come up with goals.
  • Identifying opportunities, to determine what the client needs not only now but also in the future.
  • Building a structure for the allocation of investments
  • Securing a private client online portal to give real-time access to the client’s profile
  • Periodic evaluations of the investment strategy and progress tracking
  • Close analysis and monitoring of portfolio growth.
  • Evaluation and consequent adjusting of the plan.

More information

HCR Wealth Advisors is wholly dedicated to serving its clients and is not financially motivated. They charge a one-time fee which is a percentage of all assets under their management. This is not necessarily the case with competitor companies. This ensures transparency between the company and its esteemed clients which is vital in every business.

Hussain Sajwani – The Story Of Middle East’s Future Star

Hussain Sajwani, the founder and the chairman of DAMAC Properties was ranked as the 4th richest Arab in the world, has roughly $4.1 billion attached to his name. But who is Hussain Sajwani, and how did he become so successful?

Becoming A Billionaire

Hussain Sajwani wasn’t born as a billionaire. His father was an entrepreneur, importing various goods from China and selling them in the UAE. Hussain was a bright young man, which didn’t go unnoticed.

Soon, the UAE government gave him a scholarship and sent him to the US, where he got a Bacc Degree in Economics and IE at the University of Washington.

He then returned home, and in 1981 started a career in finance, working for Abu Dhabi Gas Industries. It took him only two years to create something of his own: Hussain Sajwani started a catering, which runs to this day (but under the name Global Logistics Services.)

As per Arabi21.com, Hussain used the money he made from various projects and poured it into his most prominent and most successful project, the DAMAC Properties. Today, DAMAC has more than 2000 employees and has created more than 20 000 homes. But the company has no intentions of slowing down. In 2011, they launched the DAMAC Maison program, which should provide custom tailored services to more than 15 000 apartments and rooms.

Being A DAMAC Owner

Today, DAMAC Properties is one of the biggest property developer companies in the Middle East. Company’s success transcends borders and cultural differences. Most notably, DAMAC Properties developed a golf course in partnership with Tiger Woods and Trump Towers.

Furthermore, DAMAC Properties also developed hotels and facilities for world renowned fashion giants (like Versace), luxury car (Bugatti) companies, film studio giants (Paramount), amongst other things.

Apart from being a DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani is also a superstar; his success was recognized at the Arabian Business Achievement Awards 2017, where he was referred to as Middle East’s Future Star.

Branching Out

Though he is most known as the DAMAC owner, Hussain Sajwani also has interest in trading; after all, he did study economics in Washington. Hussain owns Al Amana Building Materials, which sells the various home and building stuff.

The company represents many notable companies, like Villeroy & Boch or Dornbracht. Hussain is also the owner of the country’s largest tile manufacturing company, the Al Anwar Ceramic Tiles Co.

Brazilian Hotelier Guilherme Paulus Invests in Real Estate

Guilherme Paulus is an investor in the tourism industry in Brazil. He is the co-founder of tour Operator Company named CVC. Recently, Guilherme Paulus made a decision to diversify his business by venturing into the real estate industry. In 1995, he ventured into hospitality business by acquiring the Rio Grande do Sul hotel in Gramado. The business performed well and a decade later he bought Foz do Iguacu, Parana resort. This led to the creation of GJP restaurants and resorts across the country. Visit Guilherme Paulus at Forbes for more info.

Formation of these resorts gave him the thought to start a construction company. This is because the hotel had a vast field covering approximately two and a half million square meters. The land also had a golf course inside it. During an interview with EXAME.com, he hinted that they had more than enough area to build. He championed the initiative to kick-start the idea and earn additional cash.

The project will be launched by Paulus Guilherme which hosts Iguassu Village Golf homes together with GJP Incorporadora & Construtora. It consists of one hundred and nine housing units covering about one hundred and sixty thousand square meters. The design caters for a leisure club coupled with a gourmet area, ballroom, game room, gym, playground and a courtyard. All these households will be using the hotel’s golf course. The project will follow strict pre-determined standards although each owner will build their own houses. However, the company will fully furnish the clubhouse.

The estimated cost of the project lots ranges from four hundred and eighty thousand to one million eight hundred reais. Each house will occupy between eight hundred and one thousand eight hundred square meters. Although there is a go slow in the real estate industry, he is still optimistic. He is also planning to construct three more housing apartments in Gramado, Aracaju, and Maceio where the company owns the land.

According to Guilherme Paulus, middle-income earners with the ability to buy homes are estimated to be about twenty-five to thirty million people in Brazil. These people will be happy to live in a secure and cool environment facing the golf course. To make the business a going concern, Guilherme Paulus employed Abilio Torres as the sales director of GJP Incorporadora.

Guilherme Paulus Created Tourist Opportunities

When discussing the tourism industry in Brazil, Guilherme Paulus must be spoken about. He is a well known figure in the industry due to the fact that his tourism company, CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A., is successful. Established in 1972, it is one of the country’s largest companies in the tourism industry. CVC Brasil Operadora e Agencia de Viagens S.A. Proudly operates over 15 different hotel and resort locations in Brazil—and counting.

Guilherme Paulus constantly opens up new places for people to spend their leisure time. One of the newest additions to his collection of hotels is St. Andrew’s Mountain. Located in the mountains of Gramado, visitors can experience a somewhat Victorian aesthetic while catching glimpses of a mountainous landscape from their windows.

Another resort location that has just opened up is Wish Natal. Wish Natal is located in the city of Natal, which is in the state of Rio Grande Do Norte. Natal is a coastal city that sits on the Atlantic Ocean in the northeastern part of Brazil—the part that seem to jut out into the ocean when you look at Brazil on a map. Wish Natal is good for those who prefer a tropical theme. The weather is warm and there is easy access to a nearby beach. The resort also provides access to both indoor and outdoor pools. The outdoor pools are built to look like little islands with palm trees in a body of water.

Guilherme Paulus has been around for quite some time. At age 69, the day when he will stop working is nowhere in sight. Like many others, his career keeps him going and inspired. He feels very fulfilled by the work that he is doing. The entrepreneur knows that the business that his company does has resulted in the creation of thousands of jobs for his fellow Brazilians. He also knows that, in general, his business and its economic successes have been good for the Brazilian economy. Also, by constructing more hotels and resorts, he has given tourists from all over the world more opportunities to discover Brazil.

OSI Industries’ Unlimited Growth Capabilities

When it comes to comparing all of the food service providers/suppliers, there is one company that comes out on top. This company is known as OSI Industries, and it has been able to evolve into a juggernaut. OSI Industries’ strength is located in its capability. This Illinois-based company is one of America’s largest private companies, and it brings in billion per year. It has also worked with some of the most prominent brands in modern-day society, including KFC, Subway, Starbucks, Papa John’s Pizza and Burger King. Back in the 1950s, it secured a deal to work with one of industry’s most up-and-coming hamburger chains. By working exclusively with McDonald’s, it had to match McDonald’s growth because the hamburger giant was growing at an alarming rate.

As McDonald’s continued to grow, OSI had to open a facility that provided all of the necessary goods to supply this hamburger giant. In 1973, OSI Industries opened its first plant in West Chicago, a suburban neighborhood, which catered to McDonald’s needs. At this point in time, the company had manifested into a food wholesaler, and it’s popularity began to soar. OSI would go on to open facilities all across the US in numerous regions, including:

• Fort Atkinson, Wisconsin

• West Jordan, Utah

• Oakland, Iowa

• And more

The cryogenic revolution has also played big role in company’s success as its meats could travel to much farther distances without spoiling. Out goes the old guard and in comes the new guard. OSI Industries was now a global company and Sheldon Lavin took over as the new CEO. This man is well-educated in finance, and he has a B.S. in Business from Roosevelt University. Sheldon Lavin and David McDonald, the president of OSI, went on an acquisition blitz. As of today, OSI Industries has acquired stake in prominent businesses like BAHO Food and Flagship Europe.
