Enhanced Athlete Is Enhancing The World Of Body Building

Enhanced Gear, Athlete and Coaching are 3 companies that exist under the aegis of Enhanced Athlete. All 3 companies are interconnected, and after legislation that came in the favor of the parent company, they are now all stronger as well. This company successfully won a judgement in court where they were being sued by Nutrition Distribution. Nutrition Distribution has a number of lawsuits against companies in the same space, that is some way or another, are doing more business than they are, in the same space, and for reasons unknown, the company maintains the resulting position that it is okay to sue competitors.

 

Being better than other companies in the same space should not be automatically tantamount to getting sued, but the fact remains this is happening all-too-regularly in the nutritional product space. Enhanced Athlete, a company that has a tag line “become superhuman,” has a reputation for delivering to people who take body building very seriously, products and services they want.

 

Coaching, products , gear and videos are all awaiting those who visit their website, and from these self-proclaimed “pioneers of human evolution,” support and informative content is all just a link-click away on their home page. Developing one’s body requires a lot of discipline, studying and an awful lot of hard work. It is not a pursuit that is undertaken lightly, nor is it for those that don’t know what they are doing. This pursuit cannot be undertaken without becoming a student of lifting, technique, eating and overall physical fitness.

 

Companies like Enhanced Athlete galvanize people to become more than they are; it is all about working hard and achieving betterment. There is nothing wrong with building a company designed to help others become better through creating a stronger physicality. They are making the world a better place to be, one stronger human being at a time.

 

The case that Nutrition Distribution brought, stating that there was “causal connection” between Enhanced Athlete’s false advertising and how it led to their “lost sales.” It is hard enough to create a company, to build a brand and to create success, so it leads to wondering how a company, that seems deeply concerned with pipe lining losing lawsuits, is concerned about creating a brand at all. Enhanced Athlete won that case, and the company is building their company even stronger than it was before this lawsuit began. This is the definition of success and this is also likely why Enhanced Athlete will get stronger and a company that is mired in bringing lawsuits for almost no reason at all, will likely fail.

Larkin & Lacey Stand Up for Justice

Larkin & Lacey are the voices of justice in an era where expedience seems to carry the day. In October 2007, they were arrested from their apartments and hauled into prison for crimes they were never informed. The protagonist: Joe Arpaio, Sheriff Maricopa County.

President Donald trump Seems to have had it all thought out before his assuming office on Capitol Hill. Never has a president caused so much trouble in a few months following his swearing-in.

As if the controversies he has triggered aren’t filling his in-tray, President Trump pulled off another major one, rubbing many people standing for justice the wrong way.

Mr. Arpaio was sentenced to serve, ten years ago for oppressing Larkin & Lacey; the two journalists that the Sheriff sought revenge against because of publishing the oppressive acts that he was meting out against immigrants of Latin origin.

The two journalists, finally got justice in an Arizona court which declared their arrests illegal and further ordered Mr. Arpaio to pay the two a huge sum of money. Sources privy to the ruling say that Mr. Arpiao was ordered to pay Larkin & Lacey some $ 30 million. Mr. Arpaio had gained himself a place in history as one of America’s worst Sheriff.

However, the justice that had been served did not last long. District Judge Susan Bolton validated the presidents pardoning of Mr. Arpaio.

Yes, it’s true that in the end, the controversial American leader who might just as well earn himself a name; all for the wrong reasons has pardoned America’s Worst Sheriff, Mr. Joe Arpaio, the ex-Sheriff of Maricopa County.

Contempt of Court

Mr. Arpaio was pardoned after he was found guilty of contempt of court in a case where he defied the order of a federal judge emanating from a lawsuit about racial profiling.

Larkin & Lacey are former owners of Phoenix New Times. They are the only journalists that dared to cover the antics of Mr. Joe Arpaio’s 24-year reign at the helm of the police department. The wayward law enforcement boss hatched a trick to punish the journalists. He rounded them up and tramped up charges against them.

Now, Mr. Arpaio is getting a helping hand from a rather unusual source. Some critics suggest that President Trump’s actions only serve to prove his poor leadership skills and an evil agenda for the American dream.

Larkin & Lacey aren’t leaving Trump alone too. The two journalists recall and highlight some of the heinous acts perpetrated by Joe Arpaio during his time as the Sheriff in town.

They allude to a large number of mutilated dead bodies that were ferried from prison because of the Sheriff’s racist stance and unfair treatment of Latin American and Afro American men and women.

For a man who even kept what he referred to as a concentration camp, a term with a heavy racist and murderous innuendo, right from the craftsmanship of the world’s worst dictator ever: Mr. Adolf Hitler, President Trumps move to pardon the Sheriff in a move that speaks volumes about what he stands for.

Larkin & Lacey are incensed at the turn of events. They, however, point out that the problem with America is systemic. They do not understand how, even Joe Arpaio was being sentenced for contempt of court when he had committed more heinous crimes including abductions, fraud, sex crimes and more.

Dr. David Samadi Talks Mitt Romney and Prostate Cancer

Mitt Romney, the former nominee for the United States Presidency, recently went on record to discuss a recent surgical procedure regarding prostate cancer, which he was diagnosed with last year. The removal of the slow-growing tumor seems to signify Mitt Romney’s intention to run for the United States Senate seat that will soon be vacated by Utah Senator, Orrin Hatch. The surgery, which proved to be a resounding success, was performed at UC Irvine Hospital by Dr. Thomas Aherling. In 2017 alone, more than 160,000 men were diagnosed with prostate cancer, and that number is expected to climb by a substantial margin in 2018.

Prostate cancer usually develops in men over the age of 65, with 66 being the average number, while it is much rarer in men under the age of 40. Mitt Romney, who turned 70 in March of last year, was not the first politician to successfully undergo surgery, as he joined the likes of Colin Powell, who was treated at Walter Reed Army Medical Center, as well as John Kerry, who was diagnosed during his run for the presidency in 2002.

According to Dr. David Samadi, when a man is diagnosed with prostate cancer, the two most effective options are surgery or radiation therapy. Dr. Samadi always chooses to discuss the pros and cons of each option, as making the correct decision is of significant consequence. He is a staunch proponent of using surgery to combat the disease, particularly when it remains localized, as studies have proven that, when this is the case, surgery has been decidedly more effective. The likelihood of a person succumbing to prostate cancer is two times greater with radiation therapy, and this form of treatment may come with deadly side effects, the most severe of which can be secondary rectal or bladder cancer. Those who opt to have surgery as opposed to radiation treatment, have nearly a 100 percent chance of survival, while those who choose radiation, can have as low as a 30 percent chance, particularly when it is chosen as the first option.

Dr. David Samadi is a celebrity doctor who holds the distinction of being the Chief of Robotic Surgery, as well as the Chairman of Urology for Lenox Hill Hospital. Specializing in minimally invasive surgery, Dr. Samadi was recognized as the highest paid doctor in New York City in 2012.

End Citizens United Believes Ted Cruz Remains Damaged Following His Failed Presidential Bid

In 2016, Texan Senator Ted Cruz was regarded as the main challenger to the seemingly simple march of Donald Trump to the Republican nomination for the U.S. Presidency but was often described as the lesser of two evils by political experts. Fast forward to 2018 and Cruz has found himself once again in the eye of a political storm as his approval ratings in Texas continue to plummet in the face of a challenge in the Midterm elections from Democrat Beto O’Rourke; with the backing of End Citizens United, O’Rourke is hoping to build on a grassroots-funded campaign designed to draw attention to the election funding issues of Cruz.

The backing of the End Citizens United PAC which hopes to reverse the 2010 Supreme Court decision known as Citizens United which allowed the almost limitless funding of election campaigns by Super PACs, billionaire donors, and private corporations, comes with a pledge from candidate O’Rourke not to accept funding from wealthy donors over the course of the campaign. End Citizens United was effective in running a similarly grassroots-funded campaign in Alabama when Doug Jones overcame Republican Roy Moore in a special election and set the template for achieving election success for the future.

Like End Citizens United on Facebook

Established in 2015, End Citizens United has grown into one of the leading supporters of Democratic candidates in the U.S. with a growing list of members and donors so impressive it was used by Presidential candidate Hillary Clinton during her 2016 campaign. The decision to target the Senate seat of Ted Cruz may have seemed a strange one as the Senator has become one of the best-known members of the Republican Party but his reputation was damaged by an unsuccessful run for The White House and his response to many of the most pressing matters in the U.S. in 2017 and early 2018.

Despite beginning his career in politics with a 2010 Midterm election victory funded by members of the Tea Party and ignoring the rewards of special interest groups, Cruz has since become a major recipient of special interest funds alongside House Speaker Paul Ryan; both politicians were named to the list of targeted seats by End Citizens United President Tiffany Muller in December 2017 according to mothershipstrategies.com. Although Beto O’Rourke is largely unheard of in Texas with 61 percent of voters polled having no opinion on his political views, the member of the House of Representatives for El Paso sits just eight points behind Cruz in a recent poll from End Citizens United. The polls are thought to reflect the unhappiness many feel about the special interest concerns of Ted Cruz which End Citizens United believe are being placed above the needs of the people of Texas.

Rocketship Education Can Change Future For Children

Rocketship Education is no doubt one of the most unique and successful elementary educational systems that exist. Rocketship Education is a public charter school system that situates itself in communities that are economically challenged.

Children in lower economic communities don’t always have the advantages of a really good education because many times the tax base has been eroded to the point of little to no effect for the funding of schools. The quality of education suffers and creates a specific educational gap from which the students never recover.

Rocketship Education is perfect for this situation, and when the people in the community have the opportunity to speak with the Rocketship leaders they are impressed with the results that Rocketship has had in the past. For example, most Rocketship students (called Rocketeers) have enough credits to graduate a full year ahead of comparable students who attend public schools.

Students at Rocketship (Rocketeers) enjoy a fun and exciting atmosphere in small groups, digital learning stations, and in individual tutoring sessions. Each student has a plan of action mapped out for them individually, so they can mark their progress and review anything that needs more work.

Partnerships between the parents, teachers, and students have worked very well in the Rocketship Education protocol. Parents can be empowered to take a very active role in their children’s education, or they can simply encourage their children and help them with their studies. Some parents take on leadership roles in the local Rocketship learning center. They can help in the classroom, help teachers with paperwork, and many more vital duties that can be assigned.

Rocketship instills four basic traits into the curriculum which are important for student growth and for the development of the students into well-rounded citizens as well. These core values are empathy, respect, responsibility, and persistence. Rocket firmly believes that children have a very high potential and when unleashed, the children can succeed at whatever they attempt to do. Once children learn how to learn, they really can take off and the results can be amazing.

With Rocketship, individually led programs pertaining to individual students augment and support the teacher-led instructions, and it gives the students absolute ownership over their success.

Rocketship Provides Education Advice

When you are looking to provide a child with a great educational experience, choosing a charter school program could be a great option.

The advice that is provided by Rocketship Education should be taken seriously by anyone that administers a school, teaches, or has a student in their family.

One way that the Internet of Things will be used to improve society is to improve traffic flow in major cities across the world. There are already smart cities that are popping up all over the globe and residents are already seeing the benefits. Some of the top features of a smart city include being able to receive current traffic data information from cars that are driving on the road.

This data can then be used to help determine what the right light sequences should be, which should help to make the road move more smoothly and can be used to better direct emergency vehicles.Smart city technology can also be used to help people find parking spots. The city can soon operate an application that will be able to notify drivers where there is an abundance of parking spots. This can help to reduce needless driving around, which can also help to reduce energy usage.One individual that is a big supporter and believer in the Internet of Things is Jason Hope. Jason Hope is an investor and business owner that is now investing heavily in companies that are looking to develop technology that will help to grow the Internet of Things.

Adam Milstein Has Been Building An Israeli-American Identity

There’s some things unique to the nation of Israel not well-known that philanthropist Adam Milstein has documented over the years. One was an unwritten but very much felt shunning of Israelis who had left the homeland for an extended period of time and tried to return. These same Israelis if they came to America also had trouble assimilating into the Jewish community there if they didn’t make a lot of money. When Adam Milstein started getting serious about philanthropy and Jewish activism some years ago, bringing the Israeli-American voices back into the picture and reconnecting them with their homeland became part of the program. As an event organizer and a journalist who writes for Israeli news outlets, Milstein has helped people in both Jewish America and Israel understand the contributions of Israeli citizens abroad.

Adam Milstein has deep loyalty to Israel and he was born there just four years after it declared its independence from Arab rule. He also served four years in the defense forces during which he fought in Ariel Sharon’s unit in the Yom Kippur War. He would get his bachelor’s degree from the Technion Institute of Technology of Israel and his master’s from the University of Southern California, and he’s made a big career in real estate as one of three managing partners at Hager Pacific Properties. Philanthropy became part of his daily routine at the company, but he and his wife Gila have been deeply sincere about it, and they not only support their organizations financially but also get personally involved in the activities.

The two main organizations that Adam Milstein runs stemming from his own family foundation are the Israeli-American Council and AIPAC. Many of the other organizations are college-based Jewish think tanks including Birthright Israel which actually takes students to Israel during the summer to give them a chance to meet people there both for business and personal reasons, and to give them a better understanding of what the country is like. Milstein has been on both sides of the aisle and wants his activism to not be politically motivated, so he’s had ties both to liberal donor and billionaire Haim Saban while also having Sheldon Adelson, a longtime Republican and current President Trump supporter as a friend of the IAC.
