Lacey and Larkin, Uniting People from different Nationalities

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are two nationalists that find much displeasure for oppressive regimes. Since the beginning of time, Jim and Michael have had a problem with people who view themselves as superior to others, and who abuse their powers only to see the desolate suffer.

In 2007, Lacey and Larkin proved to the world just how much the thought of an individual like Joe Arpaio makes them go mad.

In the years leading to 2007, Jim and Michael found some rather compelling evidence that linked the Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio to many criminally-related activities.

Due to their journalistic nature, Jim and Michael had no other choice other than to expose the real Joe. Sometime within the year, Arpaio had the two journalists arrested in the middle of the night, taken from their homes, and driven ‘commando style’ to the Sheriff’s operating headquarters.

Thanks to the unity of the Maricopa Community, Joe got forced to release the duo. Later on in the year, Lacey and Larkin did the impossible. They took Maricopa County including the Sheriff’s department to court and sued them for damages. Although it took six long years for the two journalists to get justice, Jim and Michael are incredibly happy that they took the county to the task.

Presently, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin enjoy a fortune amounting to $3.75 million, money they obtained from their court settlement. Since the duo had always had the heart of helping others, they decided to set up what is presently renowned as the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. Since 2013, the organization has been actively fighting for the rights of Hispanic immigrants, particularly those living in the State of Arizona.

One beneficiary of the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is none other than the ‘Cultural Coalition-Day of the Dead Phoenix.’ Thanks to the coalition, it has become possible to preserve Mexican and Chicano traditions through art. With Carmen and Zarco Guerrero being at the helm of the Cultural Coalition, the group has been able to help many immigrants achieve their dreams.

By making families in Arizona enjoy life through art, culture, dance, poetry, education, and music, the Cultural Coalition-Day of the Dead Phoenix has brought people of diverse backgrounds together. In so doing, past rifts and divisions in relationships have gotten mended making migrant communities live in harmony. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey:

Through its regular events, the coalition has been able to bring together people from all across Arizona to witness talent at its best. Thanks to the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, the group has been able to organize the October fiesta that brings together close to ten thousand people annually.

With the many events lined up, the October Fiesta proves just how much the Cultural Coalition-Day of the Dead Phoenix is ready to bring communities together. Because of the organization’s close relationship with the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund, it has been able to steer through some trying times, emerging victoriously at the very end.

What happened to Jim and Michael ten years ago was very unfortunate. Nevertheless, it has helped shape the destinies of two young men, for the better.

Sweetgreen: Changing the Climate of Fast Food

Many industries are really hard to break in for many different reasons. With the fast food industry, the difficulty that Nathaniel Ru, Jonathan Neman and Nicolas Jammet are faced with was not coming up with a unique concept. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru:

As a matter of fact, the concept for their restaurant was already solved when they have realized the issue with fast food and the restaurant industry in general. In many major cities, the fast food industry consist of burgers, overly processed food and many fattening meals. At the same time, they have noticed the obesity epidemic and the failing health of society.

While many people have lamented about the nature of the fast food industry, Nathaniel Ru, Nicolas Jammet and Jonathan Neman have decided that they are going to do something about the issue. They have decided to work on the concept for their own restaurant.

Among the things they have worked on are the types of food they are going to sell, the name they are going to give their company, and how they are going to promote it. They have come up with the name Sweetgreen for their restaurant. The most important step was getting the funds they need in order to set up the restaurant.

Among the things that Sweetgreen is known for is the salads. The restaurant has plenty of options when it comes to salads. Customers have a choice of all of the ingredients they can use. They also have a choice of whether or not they want meat and the type of meat they can choose for their salad. Read more; Nathaniel Ru | Crunchbase and Sweetgreen Entreprenuers | Fortune

The food is not the only shining factor at Sweetgreen. Another major factor in the quality of the restaurant is in how clean it is and how friendly the employees are. It just feels good to walk into a restaurant such as Sweetgreen.

One of the reasons this is so important is that people are not always going to just get their meal and go. The restaurant is designed for people to sit down and have a meal either alone or with friends. Therefore, the atmosphere has to be welcoming.
