Jim Larkin’s contributions to labour

At the mention of Jim Larkin’s name, one phrase comes to mind; a fair day’s work for a fair day’s pay. Jim Larkin is known as a passionate communist who believed that all workers deserve good pay and working conditions. During his lifetime, he organized countless union strikes that saw the working conditions in Ireland improve greatly.

Jim Larkin was born in the slums of Ireland in 1876. Coming from a poor background, he did not complete his education. He ended up working on several low wedge jobs and eventually landed a job as the foreman of Liverpool Docks.

While working these jobs, he experienced first-hand the unfair working conditions that dominated the industrial sector. Committed to seeing his comrades get better working conditions, he joined the National Union of Dock Labourers, NUDL. In 1905, he became a trade union organizer full time.

The NUDL were not comfortable with his methods of organizing for strikes. As a result, they transferred him from their offices in Liverpool to Dublin. While there, he founded the Irish Transport and General Workers Union through which he combined all industrial workers under one organization.

His method in organizing his strikes was what saw him succeed. Having realised that strikes that led to destruction of the industries his members worked in would render them jobless, he embarked on boycotts and empathetic strikes.

In his speeches he made it a point for his listeners to understand why both the unskilled and the skilled needed better working conditions. His followers like Constance Markievicz liken his speeches to the ‘rush into life of spring’. He inspired many to desire for better work conditions.

Because if the influence he had with the people, he was able to achieve the goal of most strikes despite being unpopular with the press. Jim Larkin later formed the Labour party which was responsible for organizing several strikes across the country.

The most remembered strike organized by this party was the Dublin Lock out in 1993. Over 100,000 stood together in unity, for 8 months, to get equal employment opportunities. Read more: Jim Larkin | Biography and James Larkin | Ireland Calling

Though he was not popular among some people at his time, Jim Larkin played a big role in seeing working conditions in Ireland improve greatly. To many, he is considered a hero.

Paul Mampilly Recommends Internet Of Things Stocks For 2018

Paul Mampilly is a contributor to Banyan Hill, an independent investment news company and a newsletter provider for those who want a less expensive alternative to big name publications. He shares with his readers which stocks they should look for that are not yet popular but will be in the future. Mampilly said that 2017 was a great year to be buying, but he expects 2018 may be better for selling. Some stocks he says you should still consider buying are Internet of Things stocks. These are stocks in smart technology like self-drive vehicles and appliances, artificial intelligence based applications, robotics like 3D printers and cryptocurrency technology.

Paul Mampilly started his investing career after getting his bachelor’s degree in finance and economics at Montclair State University. He joined Deutsche Bank in 1991 working in research, but soon he was involved in credit and investment advisory services and it began the start of a career that saw him travel across the world working for several other banks. He served for a couple years at Capuchin Consulting, an independent boutique firm and then joined Kinetics International Fund, one of Wall Street’s top hedge fund companies. The firm had $6 billion in AUM, but Mampilly helped grow that to $25 billion because of the reputation he had for finding investments with extraordinarily high returns. Barron’s touted the firm and recognized Mampilly during his years there.

Paul Mampilly made several predictions that brought him interviews on news networks like CNBC and Fox Business including predicting the dot-com crash of 2000 and later the housing crisis of 2008. He was also one of the first investors to buy Facebook, Netflix and Sarepta Therapeutics stocks, all of which made enormous profits when he sold them several years later. He also entered the Templeton Foundation investment competition in 2008 during which he found investments that were unaffected by the recession, and after investing $50 million he grew it to $88 million in a year. Paul Mampilly had so much success, but he shockingly stepped down from hedge fund management at age 42 because he no longer wanted to spend long hours at the office, and he wanted to help people who really needed it. So he joined the team of independent authors at Banyan Hill which allowed him to write articles and newsletters on his own time, and show people how to go around brokers to manage their portfolio. His followers have been amazed at how well stocks he’s recommended have performed.

Lacey And Larkin Improve Access to Resources As Well as Methods of Protecting Civil Liberties

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have founded the Frontera Fund, a not for profit organization that addresses civil liberties and related issues faced by immigrants and migrant workers.

There are a lot of people in the state of Arizona that have endured hardship due to the decisions of sheriff Joe Arpaio. He has a long track record of providing disadvantages and for targeting migrant Mexican workers.

Overall the Frontera Funds aims to provide resources for those who have experienced atrocities with this sheriff. There are a lot of benefits to the way that Larkin and Lacey addressed the issues that civil liberties have been challenged.

When the selective task force of Joe Arpaio knocked on the doors of Larkin and Lacey individually, there was a clear violation of First Amendment Rights that took place.

After taking Joe Arpaio to Court over the injustices that were experienced by these reporters, it is clear that there were severe allegations against Joe Arpaio on multiple accounts.

The remuneration of 3.75 million dollars was donated to the Frontera Fund, established by Lacey and Larkin. The benefit of this fund has been continuous as it improves the lives of countless Mexicans and migrant workers of other nationalities that have been targeted by Joe Arpaio and arcane policies.

The events of Maricopa County have shown that basic human rights were not respected in many of the incarcerations as they took place outside of American territories and without standard procedures for traditional prisons or jail facilities.

There are a lot of reasons the Frontera Fund can succeed in years to come. It has continued to establish a presence in Arizona and has made large scale improvements to the way that civil liberty cases are addressed by the state.

The consistent efforts of legal advocacy and proper representation can be seen throughout the Frontera Fund’s initiatives.

Overall, there are incredible advantages to the efforts of the Frontera Fund. They hope to combat injustices even though Donald Trump has pardoned Joe Arpaio.

The reasons for this pardon are linked to Arpaio’s support of Donald Trump prior to receiving the GOP Republican Nomination. There were multiple aspects of human and civil rights that were violated by Arpaio including the first amendment.

It is important that the efforts of the Frontera Fund continue so that better improvements can be made to the lives of people throughout the state. With individuals like Arpaio who had been targeting ethnic businesses and incarcerating migrant workers without due process, it is important that significant efforts are taken to minimize the way that individuals are treated.

The Frontera Fund improves access to information, resources, and contacts to help support rights and basic civil liberties. They also advocate for reform at legislative levels and document the improvements that are possible to the human condition based on their work.

Dedicated resources that are related to helping people get legal representation are one avenue that the Frontera Fund uses to maximize opportunities and standards of operation. They are a lasting force in the state of Arizona.

Securus Technologies Wants Inmates To Be Without Cell Phones, And That Is A Good Thing

There are obvious reasons why inmates should not have cell phones that they can use in the prisons, but that does not stop some people from not seeing it. They can try to make the case that inmates have rights too, but what they are failing to see when they say things like that is just how dangerous those inmates can be in certain situations. People are not making up stories to make inmates look bad, there are real life examples that have put the lives of real people in serious danger.

 

A Shooting In South Carolina

 

If you want to know what damage an inmate with a cell phone can do, talk to Robert Johnson about it. He is a former corrections officer who has had his life touched directly by violence from inmates who were not happy with him. Those people were part of a prison gang that wanted the man taken out because he had prevented contraband materials from getting out to them while they were in prison.

 

Johnson had found a package that had materials that clearly were not allowed in the jail. He intercepted that package so that it did not reach its intended target. In doing this, Johnson put himself in danger when the gang decided that they wanted to take out their revenge. They do so using a cell phone to place a call to someone who attacked Johnson in his own home. Shots were fired, and the former corrections officer was lucky to have survived at all.

 

Securus Technologies

 

One company that heard about this and immediately wanted to do something about it was Securus Technologies. They are a company that provides secure communications services for prisons. They work with local and state authorities to help make sure that everyone is able to talk to the inmates that they need to only in the most secure of ways. This ranges from lawyers to family members.

 

Another service that Securus provides is the technology to stop something like what happened to Robert Johnson from happening to anyone else. They have cell phone tracking technology that lets them know the moment a phone has entered a prison that it is not supposed to. They can track that phone down and have it removed from the prison immediately. The inmate with the phone can then be punished accordingly. It is through the use of technology like this that Securus is literally able to make the world a little bit of a safer place. We should all push for more jurisdictions to get this kind of technology installed right away.

Nathaniel Ru and Sweetgreen are Changing an Industry

Nathaniel Ru and the team at Sweetgreen have been doing something special. They have taken a stagnant industry, fast food, and improved upon it by creating an innovative customer-focused company.

Sweetgreen is the high-end, salad-focused restaurant that focuses on giving customers healthy food without sacrificing affordability or that great taste. Sweetgreen started out in Washington D.C. and has since spread to more than 40 locations around the United States. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: https://www.bizjournals.com/losangeles/potmsearch/detail/submission/6435405/Nathaniel_Ru and http://bitsylink.com/2017/07/27/nathaniel-ru-talks-about-sweetgreens/

Sweetgreen recently opened up their corporate headquarters in Los Angeles, CA and a Sweetgreen expansion across the nation could be underway. How did Sweetgreen get to this point? How was Nathaniel Ru, one of three co-founders, so instrumental in the success?

To start out with, Nathaniel Ru met his fellow co-founders while taking an entrepreneurship class at Georgetown University. Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman round out the three co-founders and they all have a similar background. The trio of co-founders are all first-generation immigrants who come from families with business backgrounds.

You could say that they all had it in their ‘blood’ to find success as entrepreneurs, but that was no substitute for hard work and a great idea.

Ru and his co-founders came upon the Sweetgreen concept, originally titled just ‘Greens’, when they realized that there were no healthy food options available near campus that students could realistically be expected to eat at while balancing school.

Nowadays, Ru and his team are still fixated on their core goals. That is why Sweetgreen only serves all natural, organic, and locally sourced ingredients. Each salad is made from the ground up with high-quality ingredients that are in season. This means that Sweetgreen routinely rotates their menu in order to stick with the seasons, always serving fresh food to their customers.

Not only is their fresh food impressive, but so is their commitment to changing with the times. Ru says, “Technology has always been part of our DNA.” What Ru means is backed up by statistics, too. Nearly 30% of all Sweetgreen orders are made via a mobile application or the internet. This tech-based integration is something that other companies are going to need to follow.

While Nathaniel Ru and his team have experienced success, they still haven’t backed down from their work ethic. Ru knows that there is much he can do and much he would have done differently if he could go back in time.

Most importantly Ru says that they’ve learned how to team-build and that has had the biggest impact on their success.
