The elections in the United States have been a subject of discussion across the globe for many different reasons, one among which being the amount of money spent on U.S. elections. The elections in the United States continue to get fancier with every session, and the corporations are spending considerable amounts to influence the party and the public beyond belief. People have almost stopped thinking independently because the amount of money spent on elections run into hundreds of millions, which can potentially change the mind of anyone. The public is bound to get influenced due to the glamorous election campaigns run by the political candidates and the political party that is backed by corporations.
The Citizens United Vs. Federal Election Commission case in 2010 opened doors for the corporations to spend as much money they want in the elections, and it has been more comfortable for the corporations since then to flood the elections with money. It becomes much easier to influence the elections and its outcome when money is involved. The political candidates can organize lavish election rallies and campaigns with the money the corporations back them. However, one political action committee by the name of End Citizens United, established in 2015 by Tiffany Mueller, has been protesting against the Supreme Court decision in the case mentioned above. End Citizens United wants that Supreme Court retracts its decision of allowing corporations to send an unlimited amount of money on elections without any accountability, and put a cap on how much an entity can spend on elections.

End Citizens United plans to raise funds close to $35 million in the year 2018 and has already raised around $4 million in the first quarter. End Citizens United wants to back the political candidates who are in support of the change in the campaign finance rules so that the elections are more accountable and can be trusted for its outcome. Some of the political candidates that End Citizens United back are Claire McCaskill, Mazie Hirono, Doug Jones, Chrissy Houlahan, Joaquin Castro, Joseph Crowley, Barbara Lee, Eric Swalwell, and many more. The headquarters of End Citizens United is based in Washington, but it has a network across the country. The people who are interested in supporting the movement started by End Citizens United can donate to their fund through many different ways. End Citizens United only accepts money from the grassroots donors and doesn’t take the corporation’s money.

The Bradesco financial institution is one of the largest in Brazil with the most account holders after the President of the bank, Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi struck a deal with the huge HSBC institution to purchase all their Brazilian branches in a deal estimated to be worth $5.2 billion. Bradesco was established in the city of Marilia which is also the hometown of Luiz Trabuco who was born in 1951 and joined the Bradesco family in 1969; as is common with this respected financial institution, Luis Trabuco was required to work his way up from the bottom of the Bradesco community to become one of its most important leaders.
As a graduate of Sao Paulo University, Luiz Trabuco is well-versed in the requirements for an executive in the financial industry and has spent much of the last few years looking to guide various divisions of Bradesco towards success for the brand and its customers. From 2003 to 2009, the current Bradesco President proved his worth for the company when he became the head of the insurance and pensions department for the banking brand; during his tenure as the leader of this division, Luis Trabuco was twice voted the Insurance Personality of the Year for the Brazilian financial industry.

Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi proved such a success as the leader of the insurance and pensions division of Bradesco that he was soon given the important position of President of the company at a time when it had just lost its position as the largest bank in the nation of Brazil. The legend of Brazilian banking continues to look for impressive ways of organically building the business of the Bradesco brand but also has his eye on the best deal to build the brand for a future which he hopes will include the role of Chair of the Board of Directors in the future.
The deal made with HSBC is a good example of the work of Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi in seeking new ways of finding a fix to an issue which is arising. Trabuco was determined to rebuild Bradesco into the largest banking institution in Brazil and had already developed a plan to build from the grassroots up but would soon find himself offered the deal with HSBC which brought the brand back to success in a single year instead of the planned decade.
After achieving success in the financial industry and gaining such a wide-ranging understanding of the issues facing the Brazilian economy, Luiz Trabuco has obviously found himself targeted for major positions in Brazil and beyond. Luiz Carlos Trabuco Cappi has sought to stay in the Bradesco family despite the Government of Brazil looking to appoint the Bradesco President as the Minister of Finance, a role he turned down as he remained loyal to the company he has been a part of for almost half a century.

We want criminals to pay for what they have done. Even more importantly though, we want to make sure they will no longer hurt other people. There was a wonderful age before the cell phone where we could guarantee that was happening. Before the cell phone was introduced, it was exceedingly difficult for inmates to get messages to their loyal friends on the outside. However, now with a cell phone, they can easily plot crimes that continue to hurt innocent people.
Securus Technologies has developed a strategy to stop these contraband cell phones are hurting people. The first part of the strategy has to do with containing the phone calls into a sphere of safety. They do this by erecting towers around your prison system. Once they have done this, the inmate’s phones will connect to the towers and believe they are still connected to their local network. From here, Securus Technologies can listen to all voicemails, uncover current and past text messages, listen to the phone calls, redirect them, or drop them. By doing this, they have been able to stop people from calling those friends outside, and also have been able to stop people from committing crimes.
The second strategy that Securus Technologies takes is the elimination of cell phones inside the correctional facility. This is accomplished by setting up multiple analyzers that can scan throughout the hallways and through the stone walls. Whenever a cell phone that is not registered with Securus Technologies is turned on, this scanning system will detect them and send a notice of its location to local authorities.
Securus Technologies was started by a man named officer Johnson. Officer Johnson was the victim of a crime that occurred because of a contraband cell phone. A local mob boss was in officer Johnson’s prison and officer Johnson disciplined him by putting him in solitary confinement. The mob boss did not appreciate such treatment and when he got out he put a bounty on the head of officer Johnson using a contraband cell phone. One morning when officer Johnson was ready to leave for work, the hitman sprung his attack. Before officer Johnson could react, he heard the fire of six gunshots and felt pain in his chest and the warmth of blood going down it. Officer Johnson survived the attack and went on to create Securus Technologies so that this evil will not continue to hurt others.

Over the past years, many corporations would provide their employees with stock options. They did so because; this type of compensation was cheaper as opposed to additional wages, equities or better insurance coverage. The options would also boost personal earnings if a corporation’s share value increased, and by giving them the options, they were able to avoid certain Internal Revenue Service rules that made it difficult to supply employees with equities.
However, in the recent years, most of these same corporations are backing out of the trend. The problems that have led to them abandoning the trend include a drop in the stock value. This would mean that the employees would not be able to exercise their options. Furthermore, numerous employees have become cautious of the stocks, and the options result in significant accounting difficulties.
However, problems are not to be avoided but rather, solutions sought. The solution for the problem with stock options with most corporations would be to embrace a barrier option called ‘Knockout.’ Here, the stock options will still have the same time limits and vesting requirements but with an added advantage in favor of the corporations. The workers lose them if the share value cascade under a particular value and the drop stay that way over a certain period. Jeremy Goldstein explained this.
Jeremy Goldstein is the go-to attorney when corporations need legal advice regarding employee benefits. Goldstein is a partner at Jeremy l. Goldstein & Associates, a law firm specializing in advising compensation committees based in New York.

At first glance, Doe Deere does not look like your typical CEO. Her hair is a very revealing pastel color. Her makeup is bold, dazzling, and sparks the imagination. You will probably never find Deere wearing anything that is drab or boring. Still, this young woman is a very successful entrepreneur and the founder of the Lime Crime Cosmetics Company. The Russian born beauty is also a big supporter of other women entrepreneurs. In addition, Deere would like to share her beginnings with others to inspire those that are thinking about starting their own little venture.
Doe Deere actually comes from a fashion background. She landed in New York and attended FIT in New York. Of course, her major was fashion design. Certainly, the lessons learned in the fashion school helped to shape and mold the young mind of Doe Deere. During that time, Deere was in a band too. However, during that time, it was difficult to find a makeup line to fit her personality. In 2008, she decided to launch her own colorful, and magical cosmetic line. It is also important to note that Lime Crime Cosmetics are animal cruelty free too.
On A Mission
Doe Deere was on a mission to create her own line of dazzling makeup in colors that were unique to the makeup market at the time. She is a very hands on person and had a part in the creation of every lipstick, eye shadow, or fingernail polish that you see in their line of makeup. Doe Deere started out in a small way. The makeup industry was very competitive and many thought that it was foolish to enter a market that was already saturated with so many lines of makeups. Still, Doe Deere held on to her vision and her mission to create a makeup line filled with vivid and bright colors.
Doe Deere’s Part In Lime Crime
Doe Deere would like everyone to know that she is a very hands on CEO. Deere works diligently to make sure that all the departments at Lime Crime are operating smoothly. She works closely with creating new products, she’s heavily involved in the marketing department, and enjoys keeping up with current events on social media pages. One of her guilty pleasures is closing the office door at Lime Crime and brainstorming with the Chief Creative Officer. This is the way new products are introduced at Lime Crime. Deere would also like her customers to realize that her part does not stop at that point. She test every product on herself, before letting it go into production.
Doe Deere also states that she is very excited by the new generation of shoppers. They are changing the way that retailers and buyers interact. The new generation is more attuned to shopping digitally than visiting a brick and mortar store. It is also interesting to note that Lime Crime was one of the first truly digital e-commerce makeup lines. Clearly, Lime Crime was way before their time.

Those familiar with Dick Devos, the billionaire political and community activist from Michigan, may know him as the CEO of Amway, which is the company that his father co-founded. He also is known as the husband of the current Secretary of the US Department of Education, Betsy Devos, who’s currently serving in the Trump administration after a long career as a GOP Party chairwoman and GOP mega-donor.
Dick Devos has a long history of involvement in community projects as well as in conservative causes. Back in 1991, Devos (who was then on his way to becoming the Amway CEO) became involved when a plan was announced to create a massive sports and convention arena north of downtown Grand Rapids, Michigan. Devos became concerned that the creation of the arena would have a negative impact on the city, just as it did in Detroit, when two major arenas were built there in the 1970s. Those arenas marred downtown Detroit when the two teams, the Lions and the Pistons, moved out of Detroit, and Devos didn’t want to see Grand Rapids suffer the same fate.
Using His Influence
As he worked towards stopping the plan, Dick Devos got involved in forming a group of business leaders in Grand Rapids, and called the group “Grand Action.” This group got involved in developing other structures in downtown Grand Rapids that did a lot to alter the city skyline. Those structures include the Van Andel Arena as well as the Devos Place Convention Center.
Following the success of his work with Grand Action, Dick Devos and his wife Betsy continued on in their work as GOP mega-donors involved in political and social causes. They found they had influence in some areas, including vouchers for private schools, luring a major airline to the Michigan Airport, and in transforming Michigan into a right-to-work state that now has a lesser union influence.
Some Successes, Some Failures
Not every political action taken by Dick Devos has succeeded, however. Back in 2000, Dick and Betsy Devos put their influence behind an amendment to the state constitution that pushed for tax funding for school vouchers for private schools. The measure was voted down, and Dick Devos also failed in his bid to become the Governor of Michigan.
Still, Dick and Betsey continue to have political influence, as Betsy Devos has shown in her current position in the Trump administration.
