Among them lies Adrangi whose determination and commitment are enough proof that you can make it to wherever you want irrelevant to your background. The credit analyst who is also a force to reckon in the hedge fund credit arena but is now retired has had a long way coming and has had to work all the way to success.

From then Mr. Adrangi has never looked back and has worked with preeminent trading credit bond businesses in Wall Street. Owing to his success in the sector one would be wrong to think that he would get comfortable because he did not. In 2015, Adrangi made a move that many would term crazy by quitting Wall Street. However, he did so because he now had better things to do like managing Kerrisdale Capital which he helped establish.

The Larkin & Lacey Frontera Fund has been in the headlines since its formation in 2013 for all the right reasons. The Frontera Fund main purpose is to rally behind civil activists group and help them fund their noble courses of championing for the civil rights of every citizen. While some people may be aware of the formation of this fund, the majority do not.
Frontera Fund’s genesis dates back to the incident of two brave Village Voice Media executives, Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin on the night of October 18th, 2007 by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County. While at their resident’s the two media executives were forcefully handcuffed and arrested by the Sherriff then booked into jails manned by him.
Unlike other newspaper executives, Larkin and Lacey did not fear writing on the top page of their Phoenix New Times exposes on how the Sheriff mistreated the Latinos leaving within the Arizona community. The two journalist shed light on how Sheriff Joe Arpaio misused his powers to make arrests and mistreat his critics, the miserable treatments, persecutions and even deaths happening around the jails and the unconstitutional profiling and mistreatment of the Latinos. All these exposes seemed to anger the Sheriff as the days went by.
The breaking point of Sheriff Joe Arpaio came from a cover story where the two journalists exposed how the Sherriff abused his constitutional power to seek crucial information about the writer’s browsing history and IP address. Instead of appearing to the jury, the two journalists went ahead and published the story. This then later lead to the arrest and detention of the journalist, however, it would not last long as there was a national outcry for the release of the two journalists. Lacey and Larkin were later less than 24 hours from their arrest.
This illegal arrest would later lead to a long battle case between the journalist and Maricopa County challenging their arrest on the grounds of abuse of power and assault on the first amendment. Upon close examination of the case, the court found the Sheriff and Maricopa Country guilty of the crimes paving the way for a settlement amounting to 3.7 million US dollars to be paid to the two journalists. It is from this money that Lacey and Larkin founded the Frontera Fund.
The fund was largely intended to go towards the Hispanic community that been the longtime victims of racial discrimination and civil rights mistreatment. Despite its primary goal the fund still manages to sponsor civil activists group around the globe.

It has recently come to the light that there was Russian interference indirectly in the United States Presidential Election in 2016. It has been confirmed that a Russian firm that has ties with Kremlin did purchase Facebook Ads for around $100,000 that were politically motivated and were intended to influence the public. Such an attempt from a foreign firm has shown vulnerable, and susceptible the United States election machinery is to foreign influence.
It is primarily due to the election campaign finance rules that allow the companies and the individuals to pour in as much money as they’d want in the election. It would make it difficult for the election commission to track where the money is coming from and which foreign entities are influencing the government formation process. It can be of great harm to the nation if the government is formed that does not have total control and is under the influence of the foreign powers.
The 2010 case in Supreme Court is pertaining to F.E.C. Vs. Citizens United, it was decided by the Supreme Court that endless amount of money can flow in the election campaigns. It is a decision that has completely changed how the election functions and is designed today. The elections have become more of a money-raising campaign than a contest among the individuals to build a better nation together.
When big money enters the election campaigns through the wealthy corporations and individuals, it is natural for the politicians to be influenced. It would make it difficult for the politicians to take the decisions in the interest of the nation or its people always going against the interest of the corporations and organizations who funded their elections. In the long run, such a campaign finance rule can be disastrous for the country.
End Citizens United is a Political Action Committee that was formed in the March 2015 to fight against and end the Supreme’s Court Decision in 2010, regarding campaign funding. End Citizen United aims to spread awareness about the hazards of such campaign finance rules that can potentially make the country a puppet of big corporations and even foreign entities. End Citizens United runs on the money donated by the general population of the country and aims to back the politicians who feel that this campaign finance rule needs to change. The movement started by End Citizens United has been growing consistently since it started and had been gaining a lot of support.
Designed by an international team based in New York City, Aquaweb is a product that aims to help urban food growers collect, filter and store moisture with a modular water sourcing and management system. What this mean is that Aquaweb helps distributes water it collects for greenhouses and vertical farms to save energy and to be undisturbed by outside elements. This product was in the Biomimicry Global Design Challenge competition and was awarded the $100,000 prize money to help crowd source the idea. Where as Aquaweb was inspired by a butterfly’s wings to absorb and capture moisture and light, Josh Smith’s smart greenhouse is inspired by convenience. Another innovative product is taking shape across the country in Reno, Nevada.
Josh Smith’s Modular Greenhouses allows even someone who has never gardened to be able to grow their own delicious organic food with just the use of a simple app. The smart app allows step by step surveillance through cameras and management of seeds to harvest. All this app needs is WiFi and one can manage their garden anytime and anywhere. Greenhouses are easy to setup with their quick assembly design. The greenhouse is simply panels that can be folded out and made secure with a few screws. Quality is not lost with the aluminum material that can withstand a category 4 hurricane if built for outside use.
Josh Smith is the founder and CEO of Modular Greenhouses who studied at the University of Nevada, Reno. With 15 years of star-up experience, Smith has successfully launched 3 startups in areas such as Health and Wellness, Home & Garden, and Biotechnology.

He hopes that by making gardening easier and accessible, this will help remedy this issue. Josh Smith’s Reno-based Modular Greenhouse can be backed at his Kickstarter.
Stock options have been losing their spot on the priority lists of many corporations. They have become unattractive due to a number of reasons. According to these corporations, the stock options do not favor their saving plans. They have therefore resorted to removing them so that they can save more. Although this is the reason that has been propagated by these organization, according to a corporate lawyer on workers compensation Jeremy Goldstein, these corporations have other reasons than the ones they are giving. These are three reasons as to why stock options are losing their place in corporations.
One, the stock option can drop their value in a big way such that it is impossible for the workers to exercise them. When such a situation happens, the corporation is still expected to file all the expenses involved when the stock value drops. The ultimate result is that the stockholders will be affected. The workers will be subjected to something called option overhang. This is not a good thing for a company since it may taint its image to the outside world.
Two, employees nowadays view them as a gamble. No one is sure of their value. With the economic downturns that are being experienced lately, stock options can easily become worthless. Many employees, therefore, choose to avoid them for uncertainty reasons.
Thirdly, many accounting burdens are associated with stock options both for the corporations and the employees.
