Whitney Wolfe Works on Progression With Bumble

For some app developers like Whitney Wolfe there is a constant need for progression. Bumble started as the dating app, and Whitney Wolfe would make it her business to set up Bumble Spots where people could meet in person. She would follow this by creating Bumble BFF so that people could develop friendships. She will follow that with Bumble Bizz is where people could still utilize the same app platform and simply switch off the dating mode to conduct business. Visit her article at to know more.

In recent weeks Whitney Wolfe has also added the option to turn off Bumble dating completely with the push of a button. Still, she wants people to utilize the app even if dating is not what they are interested in doing at the moment. She believes that this is going to be her stepping stone into building more interest in this app.

Wolfe has found herself to be one of the more intuitive app developers that is taking time to listen to the feedback. She knows that feedback is what fuels the road to progressive. It is hard to do anything and make any app better if you are not listening to what your users are saying.

It shows that she is taking their input into account as she goes forth. It also shows that she’s willing to work with users and tweak the app in a way that is going to be most beneficial.

Whitney Wolfe knows that there is a new way to look at dating in the app world when you give women power. When they are able to make the first move it is exciting for the man.

Dick DeVos helps to reshape the face of U.S. education

Dick DeVos is widely known for his involvement in Republican politics. This is an association that he can hardly do anything about. His wife, Betsy DeVos, has been one of the key figures in the Michigan Republican Party for more than 30 years. And she currently serves as the U.S. Secretary of Education under the Trump Administration. Additionally, DeVos himself ran for the governorship of Michigan in 2006, only narrowly being defeated by the highly popular incumbent governor, Jennifer Granholm.


Because of these considerations, DeVos, for better or worse, has cemented his image in the public mind as a career politician who is heavily involved in Republican causes. But the truth is that DeVos, who really isn’t all that partisan, has only spent a vanishing fraction of his entire career on political matters of any kind. Around his home state of Michigan, DeVos is known for his many other major accomplishments, including his spectacularly successful business career, his gigantic personal investments in the redevelopment of Grand Rapids, Michigan, and his lifelong, intense interest in reforming education, especially the aspects that affect the least privileged American kids.


It is in this last area that DeVos has realized some of his greatest accomplishment. Yet, he has received very little attention or praise for his groundbreaking work in the education field. This is surprising because some of the schools that DeVos has personally been involved with creating, designing and financing have become the models around which the majority of charter schools are built upon today.


One example is his West Michigan Aviation Academy. This is a high-school-level specialty academy that focuses students on careers in the aviation business. Aside from the incredible fact that DeVos was personally heavily involved in the design of every aspect of the school, including the curriculum, the West Michigan Aviation Academy has racked up an incredible track record. The school has recruited from some of the most disadvantaged neighborhoods in the area, taking kids that would have otherwise gone to some of the worst-performing schools in the state. And it has routinely shaped those underprivileged students into top-flight scholars.


Along with many other DeVos-backed schools, the West Michigan Aviation Academy has proven that kids from some of the poorest neighborhoods can achieve at the same level as those students hailing from the richest areas. And while this has negative implications for the state of public education, it provides a great beam of hope for struggling minority youth.

Jim and Lacey Spearhead the Ousting of Sheriff Joe Arpaio

Being awaken by strange knocks on your doors at night can be very astonishing and nerve-wracking for many individuals especially if you have witnessed other individuals who have undergone the same experience in the past.

However, this was different for the two journalists who owned the Village Voice Media, Jim Larkin and his business partner, Michael Lacey. They had messed up with the brutal sheriff of the county at that time, Joe Arpaio.

This was after they disclosed the illegal behaviors that he had been using to administer the county that made a lot of people resentful and hurt. However, despite the great pain that he caused to the people and especially the immigrants, no one could have the guts to stand for the rights of the immigrants by alerting him of the evil deeds that he did to them.

He had instilled fear in the media houses by arresting every individual who tried to question his administrative techniques.

Jim and Lacey, however, believed that the administrative vice by the sheriff could continue to perpetuity if no one tried to curtail it. One morning, they woke up and decided to publish all the evil deeds that the sheriff and his fellow oppressors had been directing to the Hispanic society and also the Latino immigrants. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

These included illegal arrests and detention followed by unfair convictions. The biasness never ended at that point; the immigrants who were arrested would be unfairly punished and some executed in some extra-judicial techniques.

After the publication, the public was very happy because the two journalists had spoken for the voiceless in the community. They were happy that the sheriff’s mischief had been addressed and so they expected some change from his administration.

On the other hand, the news met Sheriff Arpaio with a lot of anger. He immediately ordered the apprehension of Jim and Lacey by his county officers. This was when they went knocking by the doors of the two journalists at night. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: and

They dragged them out of their homes and took them to the prisons where they were held in custody. The public was so disgruntled by this act and responded by demonstrations on the streets. They all had a common objective; demanding the immediate release of their mouthpieces, Jim and Lacey. The two were released with immediate effect

After prolonged tussles between the public and the police, Arpaio gave in to their demands and released the duo. This would however not be the end as Lacey and Larkin went to court demanding justice for their illegal arrest.

The legal tussle went on for a while, and in 2013, they received the justice that they had requested. The Appellate Court ruled the compensation of the two journalists with an amount not less than $3.7 million.

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. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Lacey and Larkin Speak Out on Trump Pardon of Arpaio | Phoenix New Times

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.
