Doug Jones Has Been Endorsed By End Citizens United For The Senate Seat

End Citizens United has selected Democratic nominee Doug Jones to run in the Alabama special election on December 12, 2017. He will be running against Republican Ray Moore a former Supreme Court Judge of Alabama.

ECU has called out Ray Moore for having a “bigoted agenda” and a person who supports “a rigged system in Washington”. ECU accuses Moore of favoring special interests groups and neglects the concerns of the working class people.

Doug Jones has vowed to work with ECU in support of working-class families by putting an end to corruption due to big money donors. While serving as the US Attorney, Jones brought members of the KKK, who were involved in the 16sth Street Baptist Church bombing, to justice and thus is committed to safety and security for all.

Ray Moore, on the other hand, is supported by hate groups, such as Public Advocate, a radical anti-LGBT group. He is also leading the charge in the repeal of the Johnson Amendment which allows political groups to use churches as a front in order to funnel money into campaigns. Not to mention, Moore paid both he and his wife an excess of $1 million from a charity fund in his control, according to Tiffany Muller, president of ECU.

ECU’s support of candidates such as Doug Jones is necessary to the goal of reversing the Supreme Court’s Citizens United decision which gives power to super PACs who are advocates for dark money influencing politics. End Citizens United also plans to aid in the legislation of campaign finance reforms to put the power back into everyday citizen’s hands.

Over the past two years since the ECU’s inception, membership has increased to more than 3 million. ECU believes in grassroots funding by everyday people who are often under-represented due to special interests and huge secretive donations by political systems.

As stated so eloquently in the Preamble to the Constitution, “We the People of the United States, in order to form a more perfect union, establish justice, insure domestic tranquility, provide for the common defense, promote the general welfare, and secure the blessings of liberty to ourselves and our posterity…” The ECU is committed to supporting the people and upholding the very values that our country was built upon.

Fabletics: The Bad Boys Of Fashion

Fabletics is a brand that has broken almost every kind of stereotype when it comes to activewear fashion. The brand is known for breaking norms and trying to make it out there on its terms. Fabletics first started putting out their lines of activewear clothing back in 2013. Since then, the company has grown extensively to become the leading activewear company that it is today. Fabletics was founded by three people, Kate Hudson, Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg. The trio came together to form their one of a kind activewear brand that would be as different as it could be. Right from the kind of clothing that they put out, to the business strategies that they implement, the brand has always done the unconventional. Being unconventional seems to be the norm for Fabletics as it tries to do that in every facet of the brand.

 

 

When Fabletics first came into existence, it wanted to establish itself with an online presence. The brand mainly provides its clothing through its website, which is available for anyone to log onto. When a customer enters the site for the first time, they are asked to do two things. One of the things is to enter their details about the kind of clothes that they like to wear and also the kind of activities that they partake in. The second thing that a customer needs to do once they log onto the site is choosing a membership plan. Being the brilliant company that Fabletics is, they had to find a way to attract more and more customers. The group plan allowed their existing customers to keep coming back for more, more specifically, every month. The customers are always shown clothing options on the site that meet the preferences that they gave earlier. Thereon, customers can choose the kind of clothing that they want to buy, and have it shipped to their location. Customers are free to choose whatever they want, and are also allowed to browse through the previous lines of clothing, provided that they choose something part of the plan. The company tries its best to give its clients one of the widest range of clothing to give them everything that they could ever ask for.

 

 

Fabletics has also teamed up with other notable celebrities to come out with their line of clothing. Demi Lovato is one of the stars who released her line of activewear clothing through the brand. The clothing line was based on the new inspirational album that Lovato put out earlier this year, and also features the lyrics of some of her most loved songs from the album.

 

 

Fabletics knows that one of the things driving the company is its customers. One customer will always trust another because that is what helps them decide if the product is viable or not. People tend to look at customer reviews to see what others have to say and go on to purchase their clothing accordingly. Fabletics realized this after conducting extensive research on the places to post these reviews, and invested into it so that they could get more customers engaged.

DACA “Dreamers” Face Rude Awakening

It was June 15, 2012, when President Barack Obama during a speech in the White House Rose Garden announced the creation of Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). The act protects the children of illegal immigrants from deportation for a period of two years. The young people “Dreamers” who are protected by DACA must file an initial application to legally remain in the country and request work permits drivers licenses and help with tuition. The permit must be renewed every two years.

 

In February of 2015, President Obama’s attempt to expand DACA was thwarted by an injunction issued by the District Court for the Southern District of Texas. Texas and 24 other republican led states filed suit to have the DACA expansion enjoined. Ultimately, in a split decision, the Supreme Court upheld the injunction without establishing any precedent.

 

Yesterday, September 5, 2017, President Trump’s Attorney General Jeff Sessions sounded what may be DACA’s death knell. Texas Attorney General Ken Paxton had earlier written the Trump Administration demanding a “phasing off” of DACA. The missive threatened a law suit against the administration if DACA was not rescinded by the fifth of September. One governor and attorney generals (Republicans all) from nine other states lent their names to the communication.

 

Earlier this year representatives of the Hispanic Caucus met with John Kelly the Secretary of Homeland Security. Kelly confirmed the caucuses fears about the future of DACA and the 800,000 young people it protects. Secretary Kelly specifically cited legal challenges to DACA as the reason he called the meeting.

 

Multiple examinations of the program have revealed that DACA benefits Dreamers and the nation alike. Ninety-five percent of those enrolled in DACA are working and or pursuing higher education. The national benefits of the Dreamers’ desire to be productive citizens are manifold. People who work pay taxes. Educated people who work pay even higher taxes. The gainfully employed pump money into the economy and are able to make big ticket purchases like homes a college education and automobiles.

 

The rude awakening the Dreamers are facing has filled them with dread and uncertainty. Take heart, right-thinking people across the US stand with you.

 

Lacey and Larkin’s Frontera Fund stands in the vanguard of the fight to save DACA. The Frontera Fund is offering information and assistance not only to preserve DACA but to get Dream Act Legislation passed that will make DACA a law.

Nathaniel Ru: Reshaping the Food Industry

When it comes to fresh salads, a lot of restaurants boast that they have the best. In reality, their salads may be fresh, but they usually aren’t satisfying.

Most people start feeling hungry again after 30 minutes to an hour after eating one. That’s not the case with salads from Sweetgreen.

Sweetgreen is the biggest thing to hit salad chains ever. No one approached healthier food options the way that Sweetgreen did.

The innovative method drew big-name investors from all over the country to their business styles. Sweetgreen hits every major key that resonates with the modern diner: healthy, fresh, organic, and locally grown.

As Sweetgreen continues to grow in popularity, other brands are learning from their success. It’s not enough to have fresh ingredients. What every industry will eventually have to embrace is technology.

Sweetgreen was founded and is run by three tech pioneers from Georgetown University. To date, about 30 percent of the company’s transactions happen over the internet.

Also, the three entrepreneurs created a new form of management, eliminating the need for big corporate headquarters. In fact, Sweetgreen doesn’t have a main headquarters at all.

The co-CEOs fly back and forth from coast to coast in an effort to grow their company more organically.

That belief is something no one had ever done before with a restaurant chain. Most companies that operate more than one location have a main headquarters.

Sweetgreen operates on both coasts and has over 40 locations. That success is thanks to the co-CEOs extremely close relationship with each other and their team.

The three founders, Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman, and Nicolas Jammet met in an entrepreneurship class at Georgetown University. Their parents were emigrant-entrepreneurs, each with their own successful business.

The three partners were almost guaranteed a success from the day they met.

The last piece of the puzzle was finding a market opportunity right in their backyard. Georgetown had no healthy eating options when they were attending college.

Immediately after graduating, they decided to launch Sweetgreen. After some in-depth research into locally grown produce, they found their restaurant success. Read more: Nathaniel Ru | LinkedIn

According to Nathaniel Ru, the only thing they regret is not bringing more people in to help them earlier.

Every new entrepreneur has a hard time letting others in, but it’s something they had to learn to do to expand nationally.

 

Imran Haque Outlines The Benefits Of Robotic-Guided Surgery

Technology has revolutionized the operations of different industries, including the health sector. Horizon Internal Medicine is one of the hospitals that have adopted new technologies in medical practice such as robotic-guided surgeries. They perform robotic-aided cosmetic surgeries, which involves a small 3D camera that is placed in a patient’s body through a small incision. Surgeons guide the entire process by moving their hands. According to Dr. Imran Haque, robotic-guided surgeries are accurate since surgeons have a perfect view of the area through the monitor. There is minimal damage to the skin since only miniature incisions are made hence reduced probability for infection. Minimal openings also reduce recovery time and scaring.

Dr. Imran Haque practices medicine in North Carolina. His specializes in cosmetic surgery, weight management, laser hair removal, Venus-body contouring and diabetes management. With an experience of 15 years, Imran Haque has not only exhibited unmatched professionalism in his practice, but also a deep passion and commitment to assist patients.

With his instruments, Dr. Imran Haque focuses on precision and versatility while performing operations like growth removal or augmentation.

Over the years, he has concerted his efforts in helping patients diagnosed with diabetes to manage the disease. In the United States, over 9.3 percent of the population is diabetic. The disease is characterized by the body’s failure to produce or respond to insulin hormone. The risk factors of diabetes include obesity, genetics and age-advancement. According to studies, family backgrounds can also be a risk factor. Diabetes exposes a patient to infected sores, blood pressure, kidney damage, nerve damage and increased cholesterol levels. However, managing diabetes is not difficult. Lifestyle routines like exercise, drinking more water, increasing fiber consumption and adopting healthy eating habits can help a patient to manage diabetes. Imran Haque focuses on ensuring that his patients overcome the disease.

Life Long Philanthropist George Soros

George Soros has spent a lifetime as a leading funder for Democratic politics and a constant proverbial boogeyman for Republicans. Born in Hungry, he later fled the country and put himself through the London School of Economics with his wages from working as a railway porter and a waiter. The 85-year-old philanthropist has called New York his home for decades. After getting his start in finance at a merchant bank he has been working as a finical trader, where he has amassed an estimated $24.9 billion fortune through high-risk currency trades over the years. With this fortune, George Soros has dedicated himself to furthering the causes he feels strongly about, both including Democratic Party causes and beyond to liberal causes in general. He has always been politically active.

However, with the recent election and the events leading up to it, he has become more active in politics than he had been in quite some time. Politico notes that Soros had donated $7 million to a super PAC supporting Clinton called Priorities USA Action, according to FEC filings. This would make it the biggest recipient of his political assistance that cycle.In addition to this, Soros is also an advent supporter of the group End Citizens United, a group dedicated to reforming the elections and the disastrous ruling that idea that “corporations are people”

That allows unlimited contributions from corporations for special interest groups. He gifted the group a $5,000 check last election cycle, the maximum he could legally give to that group.On top of all of his political donations, George Soros also gives heavily to other causes. He is the owner and donator of his own international foundations. These foundations have donated more than $13 billion over the past 30 years to nonprofits that work to defend human rights, as well as foundations that help reform the democratic development in Eastern Europe and assist in getting access to healthcare and education in the U.S. and all across the globe.
