Bob Reina: You Deserve More

When it comes to your life, you deserve more. A lot of people are afraid to say that out loud, but it is true. People do deserve more than what they have been given so far in life. However, maybe they were raised to be too polite and not to ask for more. While there is not a single thing wrong with being polite and kind to others, it is important to go for what you want in life and sometimes it might mean you have to push it a little bit. Now, I’m not saying you need to be a jerk or rude to anyone out there. I’m just saying you need to go after what you deserve and what you need to be happy. In most cases, this involves someone’s career.

 

They need to stand up and say, “I’m not going to settle for less out of life. I know my value, and I deserve more.” It starts with having a backup plan. Since bills need to be paid and food needs to be put on the table, it is never a good idea to up and quit your job without having a backup plan. You need to have what they call a side hustle nowadays. It is a job that helps you earn extra income while also attending the job you have at the moment.

Bob Reina, the founder and CEO of Talk Fusion, knew he needed a backup plan when it was time to leave behind law enforcement. He had put a lot of years into it and it meant a lot to him, but he wanted to enter a new arena in the workplace. He likes a challenge, and he likes to inspire people. He is big on making people’s dreams come true. He has gone on record in saying his payment is when he finds out that people’s dreams have come true by using Talk Fusion, the all-in-one video technology service.

 

It has really grown over the past few years, and it has people wondering what is next and where the company can go from here. The sky is the limit with Bob Reina in charge and his brilliant IT team. The same logic applies to each and every single person out there. The sky is the limit for them when they go after what they know is in their heart and they don’t settle for anything less than what they deserve.

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Maricopa County Sheriff Brought to Shame

When Joe Arpaio received a presidential pardon from Donald Trump, it came of no surprise to his detractors when Susan R. Bolton, United States District Judge, made it official. Much to the chagrin of his longtime foes, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the former head of the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department would serve no time for the myriad of crimes that he committed during his terrible reign.

In speaking with the media, Michael Lacey shared his sentiments regarding the controversial decision, referring to President Trump as a “moron,” while also delivering a list of the many crimes that “Sheriff Joe” committed during his 24-year term. Although the rift between Joe Arpaio and the newspapermen began at the onset of his time in office, it was a decade ago that the tensions finally came to a head.

On his orders, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were arrested in their homes, in what was mostly believed to be an unethical response to the honest coverage of the injustices the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department.

While the arrest was immediately exposed to be bogus, it would kick off a three-year saga that eventually resulted in Larkin and Lacey receiving a substantial $3.75 million settlement.

As they have been dedicated to protecting the constitutional rights of those that are violated, the used the monies to create the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund, which is dedicated to holding up that stance.

In 1970, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were merely two college dropouts who were trying to make a name for themselves in the world of news media. Becoming disillusioned with the conservative coverage of many of the issues ravaging America, in particular, the Kent State Killings, Larkin and Lacey launched the inaugural issue of the Phoenix New Times.

While Michael Lacey played the role of executive editor, Jim Larkin, his business partner, would handle the networking aspects of the company. Beginning as a free weekly newspaper, the content provided in the Phoenix New Times, quickly began to cement the paper as a force within the alternative community. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

After over a decade of steady growth amongst subscribers, Larkin and Lacey would acquire a number of publications throughout the United States, placing them under the New Times umbrella. Eventually, their roster would come to include several nationally recognized publications, including Miami New Times, LA Weekly, and Village Voice.

Many of these publications have been highly lauded for their impeccable investigative reporting, as well as their up-to-the-minute coverage of social nuances and culture. After growing the company into a worldwide media juggernaut, having in excess of 60 million monthly subscribers, they decided to step away, choosing to sell their stake to a group of long-term executives.

Today, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey remain active, donating a large portion of their time to the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund, which was created with the settlement they received in winning their case against Joe Arpaio, and they recently reentered the world of news media by launching Front Page Confidential.

Former Israeli Ambassador to Britain Stood-Up to MP George Galloway’s Hatred of Israel

From 2011 to 2014 Daniel Taub was Isreal’s Ambassador to Britain. As his time in Britain was drawing to a close Member of Parliament from West Bradford George Galloway declared his city an “Isreal Free Zone”. Isreali products and citizens were to be unwelcome in Bradford. During the diatribe declaring the “Isreal Free Zone,” Galloway referred to Isreal as an “…an illegal…and savage state…”

Now former Ambassador Taub is British by birth. In 1989 Daniel Taub left what he described as “exile” in England and immigrated to Isreal. Still, his appreciation to his native country for all that it had provided him never wavered. He viewed his ambassadorship as a way to serve both countries by working to strengthen ties between the two nations. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.alondon.net/index.php?action=art&id=7198&lang=he_IL

The West Yorkshire Police launched an investigation into whether or not Galloway’s remarks constituted hate speech. The matter was ultimately referred to the Crown Prosecutions Service. Despite there being plenty of witnesses to the comments made by Galloway no charges were filed for lack of evidence. Read more: Daniel Taub | Crunchbase and Daniel Taub | LinkedIn

MP Galloway regularly rails against Isreal. He has publicly blamed Isreal for supplying Al-Qaeda with chemical weapons and orchestrating strife in Ukraine. Despite his remarks having been immortalized on tape Galloway later denied making them.

In February of 2013, Galloway refused to debate Eylon Aslan-Levy. Isreali withdrawal from the West Bank was the topic of the debate. Upon learning the Levy was Isreali Galloway refused to continue the debate declaring, “…I don’t debate Israelis.”

Daniel Taub responded to the “Isreal Free Zone” by accepting an invitation from civic, political, and religious leaders in Bradford to visit the area. While in Bradford Taub emphasized the importance of peaceful coexistence between people of all races, colors, and creeds. He also concluded that Galloway’s attitude towards Isreal was not those of the average citizen of Bradford.

Two years after immigrating Taub joined the Isreali Foreign Ministry. The Oxford and Harvard educated expert in international law, counter-terrorism, and laws governing warfare was made the ministry’s Principal Deputy Legal Advisor.

When Isreal’s security barrier was the subject of hearings in the International Court of Justice Daniel Taub was present as an observer on behalf of Isreal.

He was responsible for getting a 70-year ban lifted that excluded Isreal’s Red Cross Society from becoming part of the International Red Cross. After the Gaza flotilla incident, Daniel Taub represented Isreal during the UN hearings addressing the incident.

Urban Warfare Is Being Controlled By Ronald Fowlkes with The Hope To Stop It All

In a world where there is so much hate and crime, there needs to be good people helping to make the world a better place. One of those people who is working hard to ensure that they are doing their part is Ronald Fowlkes. Once a marine who returned from war and decided to put his energy into using his business knowledge and savvy ways to help bring peace to areas that have otherwise been under urban warfare.

 

Upon his discharge from the Marine Corps, Ronald headed back to St. Louis to serve on the police force as an active SWAT team member. It is during this time frame that Ronald helped to secure areas which have been heavily guarded by active gang members. With his help, a large number of homes have been searched for drugs or any other kind of illegal activities going on.

 

During the 1990’s, Ronald led a rebellion force across the city streets to help bring down the gang members who were causing trouble for the citizens. During this time, Ronald was determined to help others overcome their fears by helping to put a stop to all violence going on around him.

 

By the time the year 2000 came around, Ronald was headed back to Iraq but not to serve in the Marine Corps. This time around, Ronald went on to serve as the contractor of JIEDDO. The Joint Improvised Explosive Device organization was created to help those in the country to be more secure due to the removal of many weapons and leaders who recruit others to do their work. Not only did this serve as his purpose, but so is business development. That is why he decided to once again remind others about the problems that they are faced with.

 

Ronald holds a position at Eagle Industries that places him in charge of the various tools and products that are promoted to the law enforcement brigade. He has led the team and helped to train some of the best within sales as well as promoting. The experience he has left others with is the ability to be completely hands on in everything that they offer within the business as well as helping others to be at the top of their own fields within the business.

 

Ronald is trying to make sure that while he is in charge of keeping others safe, that his tactical knowledge is used to help others be in control while dealing with hostile crowds. It has been useful for his military training to help him along the way. Because of Ronald, there is far less urban warfare then there was last week and even more than there was the week before that.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Fighting for Migrants Rights

Michael and Jim are the two most influential migrants’ rights activists in the United States today. The two are based in the city of Phoenix, and they have an experience in being editors in chief for the Phoenix New Times, a publication that they established when they were still in college.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have also faced with Joe Arpaio in the past, the Maricopa County Sheriff who filed a case against them in 2007 because of the privacy breach and other allegations. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin continue to work for the migrants, and they are making sure that their rights are being protected.

Migrants who are coming into the United States originated from the Latin American countries. They are trying to escape the poverty that had ravaged the country, and they are also facing the drug war that has caused millions of deaths.

The people are trying to cross the dangerous borders with the United States, having the dream in mind that they will now experience a comfortable life. However, they are also facing some challenges while staying inside the United States because of the fact that the present administration is hard on migrants, especially those who are undocumented.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are trying to help the migrants who are entering through the border with Arizona and Mexico. They are using their Frontera Fund which amounted to $3.75 million, and this amount came from the case that they’ve won when they were arrested by the men of Joe Arpaio.

In 2007, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin wrote an article regarding the case that was filed against Joe Arpaio because of corruption allegations. The two were arrested by the men of Joe Arpaio, and they were taken into prison.

The case of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were criticized heavily by the local population of Phoenix, and even the broadcasting corporations all throughout the country reacted negatively to their arrest. Read more; Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

As their case was being heard, the judge who was handling their case found that there is not enough evidence that is strong enough to convict the two. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were later released, but they decided to file a counter lawsuit that is being addressed against the Maricopa County.

The $3.75 million that they received was used as a fund for helping the migrants. Today, thousands of people have already experienced the assistance of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

The Greatness of Bob Reina

The article titled, “Bob Reina, Introduces New Talk Fusion Software That Features WebRTC Technology”, states that Bob Reina announced a computer program that enhances communication between people.

WebRTC is amazing because it has the power to enhance usage of any computers for anyone.

Talk Fusion opened u in 2007 and ever since then, the have been dedicated to improving the communication between people through their improvements in technology. The idea of Talk Fusion came to Bob Reina in 2004 he couldn’t fit a 10 second video into his AOL email. Bob Reina is a man with many priorities and a very busy work schedule. He wakes up at 5:30 AM everyday and he immediately checks his work email and sets up his schedule for the rest of the day. Bob Reina brings his ideas into fruition by first sharing them with his product developers and then they help him modify it so that it can be brought into real life in an efficient manner.

Bob Reina went to college at the University of South Florida and he had quite a few jobs while he was studying here. He ended up graduating first in his police academy class and after that, he immediately started to get an urge to become an entrepreneur. Bob Reina is very involved in the world of nonprofits (http://blog.talkfusion.com/founder-ceo-bob-reinas-birthday-surprise/). He supports various nonprofits that take part in helping animals and taking proper care of them.

Jim Larkin, Michael Lacey and Front Page Confidential Argue Against H.R. 1865

The Phoenix new Times, which was owned by Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, put a lot of effort into investigating Joe Arpaio during his time as Maricopa County’s sheriff. The newspaper revealed information about Joe Arpaio like hidden assets and police brutality.

Jim Larkin and Michael leading were at the head of the newspapers as the owners of Village Voice Media, a company that ran publications all over the country. LA View, New Times LA, Nashville Scene, and the Phoenix New Times were just a few of the imprints under the Village Voice banner.

After their illegal arrest, lawsuit, and settlement, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey sold Village Voice Media and all of their papers. This arrest was perpetrated by Joe Arpaio; the former Village Voice owners were awarded $3.75 million.

Joe Arpaio had a serious problem with the goals of the Phoenix New Times and their journalists. He didn’t like that his dirty laundry was being aired for all of Arizona to see. Arpaio finally thought he had a reason to arrest Larkin and Lacey when information pertaining to a subpoena was published. He couldn’t have been more wrong. A judge ruled that a person has the right to reveal information about a subpoena that they were served.

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey decided to put their settlement money to good use. In order to help Hispanics, one of the primary victims of Joe Arpaio, Larkin and Lacey created The Frontera Fund. It is a charitable group that donates to other charities. The Frontera Fund provides the means to an end for organizations like the ACLU and Can The Border Divide Us?

Another recent foundation by Larkin and Lacey is Front Page Confidential. This newspaper covers topics such as civil rights, migrant rights, and politics. Recently, Front Page Confidential argued against H.R. 1865, claiming that it restrict free speech concerning adult advertising.

 

Celebrities and Citizens Unite to Save DACA

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund has been advocating for the government to pass a clean Dream At and save DACA as well as the 800 000 people who are under its protection and work and study in the United States.

Because of Trump’s desires to remove immigrants from the States, he forced DACA to close down all operation. His actions sent a wave if outrage to companies, organizations, citizens, and celebrities. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

Many if the latter has been using their influence to spread awareness of the issue and advocating for the passing if a clean Dream Act to save the DACA youth and the lives they have built in the United States.

After Trump and his government refused to address the issues that the loss of DACA costs for DREAMers and the country, celebrities turned to another member of the Trump family. Celebrities such as Cara Delevigne, for example, have been instagramming a text addressed to Ivanka Trump, Trump’s daughter, to try and appeal t her to use her influence to change the horrible outcome and save DACA as well as the almost one million people that depend on it.

The initiative prompted millions of other people to reach out to the different members of the Trump family, none of whom have acknowledged any of it.

It is essential to preserve DACA. The 800 000 people that work and study in the U. S. contribute immensely to the GDP of the country. Once they leave, however, the United States will start to experience high monetary losses.

The financial crisis will last at least ten years according to experts before it starts to stabilize even remotely The United States will experience a sharp decrease in GDP which will amount to almost $500 billion according to experts over the next ten years.

There is only one thing that can prevent such a crisis from unfolding, and that is to pass a clean Dreamer Act which will allow those one million people to stay in the U. S. and continue to work and study in the country.

The organization of DACA and its youth need the help of others to appeal to the government and make sure that the law will be passed.
