End Citizens United’s Sees Money as a Political Enemy

October 31, 2017

End Citizens United, a political action company, believes that there is conclusive evidence that a Russian company, closely connected to the Russian government, bought ads during the 2016 election for president to influence the outcome of the election.

End Citizens United (ECU) thinks that special investigator Robert Mueller, who has been investigating whether there was collusion between Russia and the Donald Trunp campaign, will be successful in his investigation. ECU is not confident that future interference by foreign entities will be stopped.

ECU”s view is that right-leaning politicians and their associates have interfering in campaigns for years. These politicians have allowed a huge amount of money to spend on candidates by donors who want these politicians to do what they want. ECU feels the current campaign finance systems is rigged.

According to ECU, the recent news that Russia bought ads on Facebook shows that America’s elections are not very strong. They think that America is not prepared to face this campaign finance issue. Foreign interference is not the only thing that America has to worry about. ECU thinks that megacorporations can use finance campaigns in a way to get the politicians do what they want.

ECU thinks that the Russia only had to spend $100,000 on Facebook and believes that in the future, foreign entities will continue to try to influence American politics. They could spend as much as they wanted to and law enforcement agencies will be there to stop them as it is not a priority for these agencies.

End Citizens was created to stop the effects of the Citizens United decision by the Supreme Court of the United States. The decision said that companies are the same as people and that money is an expression of their free speech. It made far easier for companies to fund campaigns because the government cannot regulate it as they would want to. Money is protected speech so you can’t put limits on it.

ECU wants to negate the effect of money on politics and make sure that local or foreign entities will not overly influence what politicians do. They want to reform the current political system. They want to make it better on the state and federal levels.

End United Citizens does endorse certain politicians. Recently, they endorsed 17 candidates for races in the House of Representatives in DC. Some of them are Nannette Barragan, Scott Peters, Elizabeth Esty, Anthony Brown and Josh Gottheimer. For the US Senate, it has endorsed Kyrsten Sinema for the race in Arizona. If you want to get rid of money in politics, it would help to vote for these people. To learn more about us: http://endcitizensunited.org/ click here.

ECU wants money out of politics and everything it does is a reflection of that goal.

Greg Secker: A Great Entrepreneur and Philanthropist Today

October 12, 2017

Greg Secker is an English entrepreneur and was born on 18 February 1975. Mr. Secker is recognized for his prowess in the foreign exchange field and also has adequate knowledge when it comes to matters pertaining education on financial trading. Secker passed through the formal system of education where he attended the University of Nottingham and studied Agricultural and food sciences. Greg started his career humbly as just but a mere trading technologist in Thomas Cook. While at Thomas Cook Financial services, Greg Secker developed foreign exchange systems. In 1998, he amused his fellow employees as he created the Virtual Trading Desk which would later earn him a British Telecom Award.

At just 25 years, Greg Secker was appointed as Vice-president Mellon Financial institution. Secker was also a keen follower of philosophy. It is even wiser to say Greg Secker had a passion for philosophy. In 2010, Greg Secker founded the Greg Secker Foundation. The Greg Secker foundation’s main objective was to aid in boosting the quality of lives that people had all around the world. It also made partnerships with some other youthful organizations or movements to ensure the youth can get access to quality education. Later, after the Typhoon Yolanda incident, Greg Secker stepped up and showed just how much he cared for humans.

Rocketship Education Is in Great Demand

October 11, 2017

Rocketship Education is a fresh, new approach to education which has parents and students excited about the future. The program is a non-profit network of schools at the elementary level primarily for students in low-income neighborhoods. The schools are usually found in places where excellent schools are not available.

When communities can come together for a common purpose, great things can happen. Rocketship education is one of those types of efforts where parents, teachers and students are in one accord about the results desired and the methods used to get there.

Rocketship learning has revised the thinking in regard to how students learn. The traditional methods of learning where one size fits all is not always as effective because different students have different ways of learning and different needs. The Rocketship model uses traditional instruction methods, individual tutoring and the use of technology so students can learn on their own.

Parent leaders are also developed within the school structure so that they are as fully involved as they wish to be. Parents become strong advocates and provide needed support for their children because they become engaged and know what is going on.

Students are called “Rocketeers” and they receive a set of personalized instruction paths based on their individual needs. These paths are tailored to meet their individual styles of learning. Every Rocketeer is then able to learn at their own pace without the complications of peer pressure or undue stress. Traditional learning models place all of the children in one learning path, where some get way ahead of the class and many fall behind with no hope of catching up.

So the model that seems to work best for a diversity of students is what is called a blended model of learning. This model combines tradition learning sessions and instruction, the use of technology based on the student’s needs and learning style, and individual tutoring to reinforce learning as the student progresses. This method works for students no matter what their level of learning is, whether they are way ahead, behind and catching up with things.

The three pillars of Rocketship education are great teachers and leaders, personalized learning for the students, and fully engaged parents.

Food Processing Giant The OSI Group Continues To Grow And Expand

October 7, 2017

The OSI Group, the American food processing giant headquartered in Aurora, Illinois, is continuing to expand internationally. Currently it has 80 processing facilities located in 17 countries worldwide. It also supplies meat, poultry, vegetable and dough products to supermarkets and restaurants in North, Central and South America, Asia, Australia and Eastern and Western Europe. The past 108 years has seen a vast amount of growth and expansion for the former Oak Park, Illinois family meat market founded by German immigrant Otto Kolschowsky in 1909. But through it all providing the highest quality products has remained the company’s trademark.

The growth of the OSI Group began in 1917 when the company relocated to Maywood, Illinois and became involved in the wholesale meat trade. The next major milestone was agreeing to provide Ray Kroc and his Des Plaines, Illinois based fast food franchise McDonald’s with ground beef patties beginning in 1955. As McDonald’s expanded so did the OSI Group. In 1970, the company approached financial services specialist Sheldon Lavin to get the resources they needed to continue to expand. Lavin now owns the company and is the primary force behind the OSI Group’s growth into global food supplier.

The company continues to grow today. Recently, the OSI Group acquired a controlling stake in the Dutch company, Babo Food. The company provides food to customers in 18 European countries and has subsidiaries in the Netherlands and Germany. The OSI Group plans to increase its production, markets and sales.

The OSI leadership recently purchased a former Tyson Foods facility in Chicago to improve their production options and capacity.

According to COO David McDonald, their success is due to careful product development, standardized production to ensure food safety and quality, effective ingredient sourcing, affordable prices and precise marketing to engage local consumers in each market.
