However, he does state that the market has been favorable towards short activism for the past seven or eight years. Adrangi defines short activism has “those who short a stock and then go out and publicly debate its merits” by presenting their “investing thesis.” Short activists can then “leverage the credibility” that they have built “over the years to get the market to start looking” at their short thesis and discussing it. When asked about the near future of short sellers Adrangi states that the “appetite for short-seller hedge funds is strong,” due to the market going down recently leading investors to look out for more short sellers. Overall, Adrangi believes that the future for short sellers is forward-looking as many people are changing their views and theories on short sellers to be more positive.
Globalization helps both the developed and the developing countries. For countries like the United States, globalization allows them to sell exported goods, thus earning them more money. Contrarily, developing countries, because of globalization, have the opportunity to purchases goods from other places for a cheaper price. Unfortunately, the same cannot be said for intellectual property; developing countries benefit from intellectual property because that new knowledge is what creates economic growth. However, that knowledge is often taken from developed countries.
If you’ve read or watched the news lately, you’ve likely seen the ongoing discussion between the United States and China about tariffs and intellectual property. According to the Trump Administration, China has stolen information and knowledge from technology companies in the United States. In an effort to stop this information from further spreading to the Chinese, Trump blocked China from purchasing Qualcomm, a telecommunications company.
The problem is, on the business side of things, sometimes this knowledge has to be spread. For example, in order to create a product that is approved, and that the Chinese people can use, social media platforms like Facebook have to work closely with the Chinese government. While developing another app for the Chinese people, Mark Zuckerberg, the founder of Facebook, was required to share information about how the Facebook app worked, thus giving them intellectual property.
While some argue that intellectual property rights have many negative aspects, Professor Kamil Idris, argues that this transfer of information is critical for economic growth. However, he also firmly believes that these rights need to be protected. Professor Kamil Idris argues that, in regard to intellectual property, the most import thing to consider is how and why IP infrastructure is important. In order to protect these companies, more importance needs to be placed on IP infrastructure. To achieve this, countries need to be willing to hire IP specialists who have the expertise to deal with the IP challenges that are happening.
Professor Kamil Idris serves as the President of the International Court of Arbitration and Mediation. Throughout his career, Professor Idris has gained a great amount of expertise regarding intellectual property. He graduated from Khartoum University, in Sudan, with a Bachelor of Law. Professor Kamil Idris also earned three a Bachelor of Arts degree from Cairo University in political science, economic theories, and philosophy.

In 2014, 14.5 million people in the United States had cancer. How patient information and data is handled in the medical system is rarely thought about until someone or a loved one gets the dreaded diagnosis. Eric Lefofsky, co-founder of Tempus, wants to make patient care data-driven and tailored to each patient on a molecular level.
Despite advances in technology with the advent of electronic health records, how medical data is collected and analyzed is far from how effective it could be. Tempus does not just want to change what we do with the large amounts of information that is already collected, their loftiest goal may be making patients’ complete genetic makeup part of their medical record that is regularly referenced and cross referenced by scientists and doctors from around the globe. A process that in 2003 was done for more than one hundred million, the current expenditure is only around five thousand and is expected to be around a few hundred within the next several years.
Eric Lefkofsky is a Detroit native with a Bachelor of Arts and a Juris Doctor from the University of Michigan. He is best known as the co-founder of groupon, but as of 2015 he resigned from his position of Chief Executive Officer to Chairman of Groupon and is now able to better relegate time to his many other projects. Lefkofsky also co-founded the company Lightbank, the company Tempus operaes under.

He currently acts as a board member at World Business Chicago and is the co-chairman of the Technology Council.
nations have failed in maintaining justice and equality for all citizens. They are a lot of victimization to the marginalized groups in the society. This has triggered the formation of many philanthropic organizations in the nation to help curb the situation.
Different humanitarians, advocate for various groups based on their inspiration in founding them. Here are examples of proactive philanthropic groups in the nation;
Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund offers financial support to the philanthropic organizations in Arizona that offer the same objective with them. They aim to see that the human, civil and migrant’s rights are observed and that all the members of the society can express themselves without fear of condemnation.
The group is a creation of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. The duo is popularly known for winning their legal battles. Their first accomplishment was implementing the first amendment rights. They acquired the money to begin the Frontera Fund from the case of Sherriff Joe.
Arizona Project Justice
The inmates are viewed as peace distractors in the society. Many individuals have the impression that they continually deserve to be mistreated and mishandled. Some convicts need medical attention or suffer serious ailments, and no one seems to care. The Arizona Project Justice objective is to fight and ensures that such prisoners get justice. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey
Other inmates claim to be innocent. The only reason they are behind bars is that they lacked legal representation. The organization also ensures that these inmates acquire their freedom.
The Disability Rights Education and Defense Fund
The only thing that the community serves the disabled is their pity, which is far from what they need. The disabled are individuals who need opportunities to better themselves like everyone in the nation. Many companies cancel an application with the mention of the individual being disabled.
The DREDF fights to ensure that the rights of the disabled are advanced. The organization also empowers the disabled by educating them about their rights.
NAACP Legal Defense Fund
Racism has become an issue that needs to be addressed in the society. Judging a person based on their color is irrational and uncouth. The NAACP Legal Defense Fund is committed to educating the society against racism. When the situation goes to extremes, they fight using the litigation method.
Everyone is entitled to justice and equality. It is imperative that members of the society learn to treat each other with respect and dignity regardless of who they are or what they have. The humanitarian groups are actively participating in ensuring this happens.
Frontpageconfidential is a website that focuses on issues regarding First Amendment and civil rights that is published by Phoenix New Times co-founders Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. Starting in the early 70s, Lacey and Larkin began publishing the Phoenix New Times as a response to the highly biased covered of the Vietnam War that was presented by the Phoenix areas highly conservative news media. The Phoenix New Times experienced a steady growth over the years to attain the status of one of the top alternative papers in the United States. This would eventually lead to the development of a nationwide conglomerate of newspapers that all had similar journalistic ideologies. Now, Frontpageconfidential serves as the latest outlet for journalistic activism that Lacey and Larkin are offering to the public.
Front Page confidential has not been the only big news from Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey over the last couple of years. The journalists have also founded the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The fund’s mission is to provide funding to important civil, human, immigrant and First Amendment rights crusading organizations across the United States. The Frontera Fund became possible due to the aftermath of the most infamous event that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were a part of. The journalist’s 2007 wrongful arrest by Sheriff Joe Arpaio and the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department had the final result of the Lacey and Larkin receiving a $3.75 million settlement in compensation for the department’s illegal actions. The journalists had always been active opponents of the actions of Arpaio and his department and the Frontera Fund strives to provide funding to organizations who fight against the exact kinds of injustice that the Maricopa County Sheriff’s Department had routinely perpetrated under the leadership of Arpaio. The Frontera Fund along with Frontpageconfidential are just two more amazing ways that Larkin and Lacey can continue their activism.
A corrupt sheriff has been voted out in Maricopa County, Arizona. The sheriff was Joe Arpaio and he was notorious for human rights violations and breaches of Constitutional rights. At some stage in the 2018 mid-term elections, Joe Arpaio is campaigning for a seat in the Arizona Senate. He states his cause for campaigning is to support the agenda and rules of Trump and to “Make America great again.” Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/about/ and http://james-larkin.com/press/
The news comes as little surprise considering Donald Trump just gave Mr. Arpaio a full pardon for crimes in 2007. In 2016 Joe Arpaio was found guilty of contempt of federal court for his flagrant and ongoing racial profiling of Latinos in Maricopa County.
The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was instrumental in handing down his sentence. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were at odds with Mr. Arpaio for the decade.
Their newspaper, New times, chronicled a number of the horrible acts Joe Arpaio was responsible for. Their Frontera Fund helped mobilize the efforts of hundreds of young Latinos across the united states of america to rally their votes and seek justice.
The presidential pardon given to Arpaio through Donald Trump did not follow the proper method for a presidential pardon and has been regarded as a political ploy. The 2018 election could be interesting to mention the least. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase
Joe Arpaio has a minority of supporters within the electorate and overseas. His remote supporters retweet inflammatory messages and flag wave as if they’re nationalist people.
Many activists, journalists, and engaged citizens are retaining an eye on his development and any political updates. Arpaio is an undeserving candidate for the Senate seat and has ethical flaws that could detriment the complete nation should he take such a position of power.
He has slaughtered inmates in his jail, siphoned away at tax dollars for his purposes, and takes satisfaction in racial profiling. He has been called “america’s toughest sheriff” and smiles when someone calls him a member of the Ku Klux Klan (he considers it an honor).
His department deputes have failed at investigating more than four hundred intercourse crimes involving children and are infamous for unlawful operations concerning immigrants and minorities.
Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin prevailed in a main lawsuit in opposition to him while he tried to silence their publication. Spread the information through studying this and telling your buddies, don’t allow a bigot to get elected to Senate.

Jim and Lacey’s arrests had been organized by the famous Maricopa County’s sheriff know as Joe Arpaio. They were the only people to have fought courageously for the rights of the immigrants without giving up. Their cases were dropped by the famous county attorney by the name Thomas Andrew.
As the cases were dropped, they decided to go back to the same courts for what they referred to as a violation of their fifth amendment rights. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were interested in knowing why they had been arrested and had to consider the Prosecutor, Dennis Wilenchik, Thomas and also Joe Arpaio who seemed to have organized the kidnapping.
It was clear that the arrest had just ended their careers and they had to go back to the drawing board for the improvement of their lives. Joe Arpaio was forced to pay the two journalists damages worth $3.75 million which acted as the compensation. T

They have always been on the frontline supporting the groups support their movements without any problems. The two journalists have always committed their lives towards helping the immigrants across the globe.
Ten years ago Joe Arpaio was serving at the California Maricopa County Sheriff, and he is the person who made Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin famous when they published a story of his prosecution by the State prosecutor on their website. Mr. Joe ordered for the arrest of the two journalists who are also immigrants. Larkin and Mike are immigrants and when they made in the foreign country, they decided that they will use their skills and profession to help other immigrants to live their lives in the United States America.
The two journalists and immigrants established a foundation known as Frontera Fund with a primary purpose of assisting immigrants, and with the money raised immigrants from the Caribbean, Central America, Mexico, as well South America can have a better life. Mr. Mike and Larkin did not start the human advocacy when they became journalists, instead, they still had the passion while they were still in college.
During their schooling, they created Phoenix News-Times, a journal which would later be very popular in their country. The publication grew even wider to an extent of collaborating with other media platforms.
Fighting for human and civil rights of their fellow men has not been easy, the two human rights fighter has on several occasions been put behind bars for trying to give the minority a voice in the United States of America. They were first arrested by Joe after he accused them of publishing the news about his prosecution and were put in separate jails.
