We Hate To Run

Every human being should be afforded the same rights. One’s social status, race, sex, age, sexual preference, etc., should not be a factor that should give one person preference over another. There have been many acts of discrimination of civil rights, human rights and migrant rights captured on video, thanks to modern technology. These videos are bringing discrimination to the forefront without the discriminator being able to deny his/her acts. With these new tools we will be able to fight back even harder.

Now we are taking technology one step further with “big data”. Big data companies are compiling data that is revealing discrimination that is hidden. Hidden discrimination is the worse kind because if you don’t even know you are being discriminated against then you can’t fight back. This type of racism goes way deeper than anyone imagined.

A company called Cedar Grove Institute For Sustainable Development upon compiling census data for Moore County, N.C. noticed that the city had redrawn it’s boundaries around historically African-American neighborhoods excluding them. With the African-American neighborhoods no longer within the boundaries, they were no longer eligible to vote on public issues or even receive public services like water and sewage.

Most recently, Wells Fargo, an American international bank, is in hot water for the violation of the “Fair Housing Act of 1968”. The act was put in place to provide equal housing opportunities regardless of race, religion, or national origin and made it a federal offense if violated.

The great thing is that individual states are beginning to take matters into their own hands. They are tired of waiting on equality that seems to never come. And with technology proof can now be shown, undeniable proof. Big data is showing that there has been hidden discrimination that is being brought to the light.

This sense of urgency to bring justice to these perpetrators is also being shown on an individual level. Two such individuals are Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin who were dragged out of their homes one night by the police and arrested for something they had not done. This incident sparked a multi-million dollar lawsuit which Lacey and Larkin won.

With some of those proceeds they formed the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. They support many organizations such as No More Deaths-No Más Muertes, Si Se Puede Foundation, Justice for Immigrants & Families Project and Justice that Works to name a few.

Fun with EOS Lip Balm

The sun is out and it’s time to enjoy the great outdoors. There are barbecues to attend and beach days to plan all while making sure your skin is protected from the sun. Often we forget that the skin on our lips is some of the most sensitive on our body and gets a lot of sun exposure. When applying sunscreen you don’t want to rub that lotion on your lips, it does not taste good and all the ingredients may not be ones you would want to consume. EOS lip balm makes sure that your lips are covered with their Fresh Grapefruit with SPF 30 and Lemontwist with SPF 15. Like all EOS lip balms, Fresh Grapefruit and Lemontwist are made with shea butter to soften your lips, jojoba oil to hydrate, and are petroleum and paraben-free. Jump in the water and splash around knowing that Fresh Grapefruit and Lemontwist lip balm are water resistant for up to 80 minutes. See douglas.de for more.

EFH offers loans that are of high value with interest rates that are fixed and manageable. They provide an alternative capital against the public exchange of shares traded globally. The company is located in nine countries which include, Singapore, Australia, Hong Kong, London, New York City, Indiana, and Indianapolis.

The main clients of EFH are investors who are given loans after a thorough evaluation of future risk and performance related with the treasuries, bonds, and stocks. Investors get to enjoy flexible securities, and they can use the loan in anything they want to since it does not come with restrictions. The loan also comes with lower interest rates compared to other financial instruments.

EFH clients also enjoy dividends since the pledged collateral is returned to the customer who borrowed the loan. Furthermore, they also enjoy high valued loans of a ratio of up to 75%. The borrower has to wait for only a short time for the loan to be processed. EFH made investors and individual lives much easier through their products and by relocating, more people will benefit from the services offered.
