Lacey and Larkin revisit the arrest by Joe Arpaio

Different presidents in the United States have made controversial pardons, but many of these cases might not be known to a majority in the current generation. However, President Trump has made one pardon that falls squarely in the league of controversial pardons by a head of state.

Towards the end of 2017, President Trump pardoned notorious former Sheriff of Maricopa County known as Joe Arpaio. Among the crimes he committed is unlawfully arresting Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, journalists and owners of Village Voice Media.

The story of Arpaio and the two journalists goes back to 2007 when he ordered their arrest. He accused them of disclosing details related to grand jury proceedings. In what later came to be decided by the courts as a case of First Amendment violation, Arpaio took the journalists from their homes at midnight and proceeded to hold them in the illegal jails he was running.

Lacey and Larkin were held for 24 hours after which they were released following pressure from the media industry.

Through one of their newspapers known as the Phoenix New Times, Lacey and Larkin focused on the atrocities in Maricopa while Arpaio was the sheriff. They focused on illegal jails such as the Tent City which was a torture chamber for immigrants who he arrested. The paper also focused on crimes that were going in these jails. There were cases of human rights violations of worrying magnitude. Inmates were beaten mercilessly and tortured through the denial of basic supplies such as food and medicine.

Due to the nature of crimes Arpaio had committed, he found himself in court severally, answering to cases of harassment of immigrants. In 2011, he was ordered by a judge to stop racial profiling of immigrants, an order he never obeyed. Arpaio aggressively tortured thousands of Latinos who had crossed the border into the United States despite the court intervention.

After Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin took up the case of Arpaio and covered it in deals, his criminal deeds caught the attention of the whole country. The public pressure had the Sheriff taken back to court once more to face charges of contempt of court orders.

Joe Arpaio was found guilty by the courts and was to be sentenced in October 2017. However, those like Lacey and Larkin who wanted to see the former Sheriff pay for his mistakes were left dismayed after President Trump gave Arpaio a pardon even before the sentencing date.

Learn More About Bradesco And Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi

     Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has unarguably had an outstanding career at Banco Bradesco. Succeeding in any country’s banking industry is difficult, let alone maintaining the private Banco Bradesco’s size and performance among the top three major financial institutions in all of Brazil – right behind Indonesia in terms of population, ranking fifth in the world; Brazil also has a top-notch economy relative to every other nation’s economic output.

As of 2018, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi will celebrate his 50th year with Bradesco – also known as Banco Bradesco SA, where “SA” stands for South America. He started toiling away for the then-young company with only 20-odd years under its less-than-corporate belt immediately after finishing compulsory secondary schooling at the age of 17.

Mr. Trabuco climbed through every rank possible within Bradesco’s organization

Banco Bradesco didn’t promote Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi – at least not any meaningful promotions relative to the bumps in workplace rank he has received over the last two decades – much until after he showed leadership, poise, and care for cross-departmental efficiency as the director of marketing.

At the age of 32, some 15 years’ experience at Bradesco made him comfortable enough within the organization to revamp its communications policies with reporters, journalists, and curious businesspeople. Rather than keeping the company’s information as secret as possible under perpetual lock-and-key, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi decided to openly share all information that didn’t include things like trade secrets, customer information, and other sensitive information.

Banco Bradesco immediately became more popular among Brazilians because no other bank had made such a firm push towards transparency among all ranks and departments of the business. Rather than being obligated to send all inquiries regarding interviews to public relations or communications departments within Banco Bradesco, all employees were free to chat with literally anyone as long as super-sensitive topics weren’t touched on.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi isn’t at the top anymore

Mr. Trabuco is not at the top of Banco Bradesco’s executive chain of command anymore, though he is the President of the Council at the company – the position roughly translates to being the chairman of a company’s board of directors.

Drew Madden seeks to build new kind of healthcare consulting culture

Drew Madden has emerged as one of the most important figures in the healthcare IT consulting space throughout the past two decades. Out of college, Madden immediately went to work for one of the biggest providers of healthcare technology, the Cerner Corporation. After a year-long stint there, he went to work for that firm’s largest competitor, Epic Systems. As Madden describes, these two companies are the Pepsi and Coke of the healthcare technology space. These experiences gave Madden a first-hand, in-depth look at the software that drives the vast majority of hospital operations throughout North America.

And he was able to use this experience to become one of the most formidable healthcare IT consultants in America. Going to work for Nordic Consulting Partners, Madden quickly established himself as one of the company’s brightest stars. He was able to bring in massive amounts of new business to the company while providing top-flight solutions to the company’s many clients. Eventually, he was tapped to lead an executive role. And in 2011, he became the CEO of the firm.

But it was here that Madden first started to realize that the entire culture of the healthcare IT industry was not geared in the optimal direction. Madden saw that many of the people working in the field were enormously talented software developers with striking levels of skill. But he also saw a hole that existed in addressing the problems that people had while working with the software as well as with each other. While the software itself was among the finest that had ever been developed, it was the people using it who needed the bulk of the attention of these systems’ designers.

Madden knew that a sophisticated software solution was of no use at all if the end users could not make the best use of it. He decided to break off from Nordic and found his own firm. Called Evergreen Healthcare Partners, the company is dedicated to taking a human-centric approach to healthcare IT, giving extra attention to the people who use the software and the patients that they serve.

Jim Toner, The Youngest Real Estate Developer Who Is Willing To Teach Others

In the world filled with selfish people, it is not easy to find someone who will be willing to share with you, an idea that will benefit you in the end. If it happens that someone will advise you, most of them look at how much they are going to gain. That is not the case with a 27-year-old Jim Toner, a real estate developer.

He is open to sharing what he has in his mind with those who are willing to venture into the real estate investment. He has managed to talk to thousands of people across the U.S. on the benefits that come when one invests in real estate. His views come at a time when many Americans, some of whom had put a lot of their money in properties lost nearly all the money. If these investors did not lose the money, their property lost the value thus individual investors could not get the projection they wanted. Jim Toner says that these happened during the recession.

Now that the recession is over and things seem to be coming back to normal, Jim Toner said,  his listeners that it is time to put the money where it comes benefit their families in the future. It is because of his generosity in sharing with the people that have made him earn the title ‘The Anti Guru’.

To ensure that he reaches many people with the positive message, Jim Toner regularly appears on ABC, CBS, CNN, FOX, and CNN. Reputable magazines have also published his expert advice. The aim is that his message reaches as many people as possible. Many people who listen to Jim Toner or read his pieces in newspapers and magazines say that his advice and application of common sense strategies have encouraged them a lot.

Over the years, Jim Toner (@thejimtoner) has been able to work with big names in the industry. Some of the names you can always refer to are Frank McKinney, Napoleon Hill Foundation and Bill Bartmann among other big brands.
