Growing Up With Wine

Julia Jackson was literally born into the wine industry. From picking grapes in 100-degree weather to learning about the inner workings of her father’s company, Jackson Family Wines, she was curious about wine at an early age, making her choice of career path rather easy. Born in San Francisco, CA in 1988 to Jackson Family Wine proprietors, Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke, it was due to this connection with the family business that Julia would go on to discover her other passion. During her youth, as she spent summers around Jackson Family Wines, she developed a lifelong bond with an employee’s daughter who spoke French. From then on Julia Jackson has been captivated by the French, eventually taking trips to France with her childhood friend. As Julia got older her two passions collided when she took a position in Bordeaux, France to focus on French sales distribution. While in Bordeaux she also worked supervising harvesting at the family-owned Chateau Lassegue, eventually elevating her career to the level of a proprietor at Jackson Family Wines.

Attending Scripps College as an undergraduate, Julia Jackson furthered her education by attending the Stanford Summer Institute of General Management, all taking place between 2006 and 2010. While she attributes much of her success to her education, she often recalls her time as a youth plucking grapes from their vines as her motivation to be so career-oriented. Many days Julia Jackson works 14-hour shifts to ensure maximum productivity in her sector of the company. As Jackson Family Wines continues its expansion, they, with Julia Jackson squarely at the forefront, began championing the wines of Sonoma County, as they have often been compared to the wines of Napa Valley, although not traditionally held in as high regard. Two of the most popular wines available from Jackson Family Wines are the Pinot Noir and Chardonnay.

George Soros must Rise Again to Stop Hatred Towards Immigrants

George Soros is a smart man. He is a very knowledgeable businessman and investor that has managed to amass a huge fortune by investing within the British economy. Soros doesn’t dabble that much in business these days. He now places his focus onto politics. Two areas that now get his attention are the issues surrounding immigration and terrorism. George Soros firmly believes that President Donald Trump is ruining America because of these two very important and controversial issues.

President Donald Trump issued a Muslim immigration ban back early in 2017. This ban restricts Muslim people from certain countries from entering the U.S. George Soros opposes this ban because he limits the rights and freedoms from people who are legitimately migrating into the United States. He also realizes that many refugees from turbulent countries will be limited from coming into the U.S. as well.

Soros understands that the U.S. must protect itself from the dangers of terrorism. However, he does not believe that this is the way to deal with this problem. Soros believes that the president is doing more to promote terrorism and fear by restricting Muslims from entering into the United States. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.

In case you did not know, George Soros is an immigrant and not a natural born American citizen. The nation of Hungary is his birth home, though he is an American citizen. Soros has citizenship in both places. Since Soros is an immigrant, he understands from first-hand experience how important the laws are to immigration within the United States.

The billionaire financier believes that Trump’s actions are stirring up a lot of anger and resentment around the world because of this ban. Many Muslim people within the U.S. feel alienated and terrified by his comments. He also points out that many Muslims outside of the six nations that have been banned, are pretty upset as well. After all, if this ban was successful; the ban could be extended beyond the original six countries. Soros believes that Trump’s actions have the potential for creating a lot of future problems for the U.S. Read more at The New York Times about George.

Hate crimes in America are already on the rise. More than enough of these crimes are directed at Muslim people that are within the U.S. He even believes that more hatred will be fueled toward immigrants and there will be a greater amount of violence directed toward U.S. citizens from Muslim (terrorist) sympathizers within the U.S.

The main thing that Soros is concerned about is that people are branding all immigrants criminals. He knows that this is not true and does not want immigrants to be viewed in this way. Soros wants to continue his support of democratic causes especially those that protect immigrants everywhere.

Collecting Criminal Evidence Using Securus Technologies

One of the duties of being a fugitive hunter is making sure to close the case as quickly as possible so that less innocent people are impacted by the actions of this suspect. The case we were working on this month was especially troubling because soon after he escaped from prison, he held a convenience store clerk up at gunpoint, he carjacked a vehicle at gunpoint, and he shot at authorities who had him surrounded in a park.

 

Our suspect had no family or friends in this region who could help us tighten the noose, so I returned to the jail he escaped from in the hopes of getting information from inmates who may have heard something. This was a very challenging situation because inmates don’t talk to the police openly for fear of being labeled a snitch.

 

During my time inside the prison, I discovered that they had recently signed up with Securus Technologies and were utilizing an inmate call monitoring system to keep close tabs on inmates. This company has 1,000 employees who are working towards the objective of making our world just that much safer for us all. Once I discovered how the LBS software worked, I couldn’t wait to see if we could identify chatter with the inmates concerning the fugitive that we were hunting.

 

It didn’t take very long before we discovered conversations between inmates and family talking about the recent escape. One inmate in particular was very clever in how he kept asking his family how their new guest was doing. Had it not been for the fact we identified this inmate as a distant relative of the suspect, we would have never connected the dots.

 

Our team swarmed that location and busted in at the crack of dawn while all occupants, including our suspect, was sound asleep. He was back in jail before he could hurt anyone else.

 

The Real Estate Magnate: Nick Vertucci

Part of Nick’s philosophy in life is that his past does not dictate his future. He grew up in a loving home and was well cared for by his family. However, he was by no means a wealthy kid. His first major challenge in life came when his father died when he was just ten years old. His mother was forced to work long and hard to provide for both him and his siblings. When she came home late, Nick and his siblings were mostly already asleep. When he turned 18, Nick was living in a van, and his life had just but hit rock bottom.

His Fortunes Begin to Change

Nick Vertucci caught his first lucky break when he began a small business selling computer parts. He immediately fell in love with the freedom that being his own boss gave him. He later decided to get married and out of that came three beautiful kids. Things were going just fine until the dot com crash that happened in 2000 according to fortunesinflippingevent.com. He watched in horror as his life’s work dissolved right in front of him. Unfortunately, Nick Vertucci had not made any plans for the future.

His Second Chance at Success

About a year and a half, Nick Vertucci had no income and debt kept piling up. He lost everything but managed to salvage his home. During this period of hardship, a friend of his invited him to attend a real estate training seminar that took place over the course of three days on nvrealestateacademy.com. He was apprehensive at first since he did not want to waste three days of his life while he was in so much debt. However, looking back to that conference, Nick Vertucci says it was probably one of the most important decisions of his life.

Nick Vertucci soaked in everything the speaker at the conference had to say. He did not understand everything that was being said, but something clicked. From that day, he knew that he had found a lifeline on how to get out of debt. He felt inspired and renewed, and he continued to study and train about real estate.

It took him nearly a decade to gather all the information that he needed to succeed, but he kept at it. Eventually, he was able to come with a system that would help him make money in real estate without having to struggle so much.

Nick Vertucci Just Wants to Spread Knowledge

When Nick Vertucci finally reached the pinnacle of success, he knew that he had to teach his system to others. He did not want to be in as much debt as he had been. Nick said he sympathizes with people who are struggling. He knows they have the drive to make it, but they just do not know how to do it. That is his purpose in life. He wants to share the knowledge.

Whitney Wolfe-Feminist of the Dating Scene

     From the very beginning of her business career, Whitney Wolfe has been a promoter for bettering peoples lives. At the age of 19, she started making a difference for areas effected by the BP Oil spill by selling bamboo tote bags. A small kindness turned into a blossoming non-profit organization called, “Help Us Project”. Her continuing need to help others took her to Southeast Asia where she dedicated her time with orphans. Eventually her business decisions led her to start a dating app with a special purpose.

A Movement of an App

Whitney Wolfe doesn’t view Bumble as just another dating app, but as a movement. A chance for men and women to treat each other, to view themselves differently, and to view dating in a different way. Finding your perfect match is as easy as swiping right or left. But this time, the women are in control. When there is a mutual attraction, it’s a match. However, it is up to the women to make the first move. With a countdown of 24 hours before the match expires, it doesn’t leave much time for worrying or over thinking.

Beauty and the Bumble

The purpose of Bumble is to empower women. In Whitney Wolfe’s observation, she sees that most bullying for girls happens through social media. In wanting to start an open conversational app which let girls converse freely, she was reminded that her expertise was in the dating industry. So she created an app that could do both. Be a successful dating app yet at the same time promote feminism.

Success it’s Finest

Elle Magazine named Whitney Wolfe as one of Elle’s Women in Tech in 2016.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Know How To Help People

No matter what Larkin and Lacey are doing with civil rights, they are always working to help people get the opportunities that they need. This means that they are able to help people with things like advice, information and even money when they are in different situations.

For Larkin and Lacey, the fight for civil rights is not even near being over and will probably not ever be over. As long as there is a government to take rights away, there will be people like Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin who are helping people to get their rights back.

They believe that everyone is entitled to these rights and that they need to make sure that they are using the constitution to help people realize the rights that they have when it comes to the options that are listed in the different situations. It is going to allow them to be able to do more with their own opportunities.

For Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, civil rights are very close to their hearts. This is something that they have had to deal with on their own and something that they fought. They were able to win the fight against a sheriff who was mad that they published information about a corrupt office.

They had enough money to fight the case (and win) but it made them wonder what would happen if someone didn’t have enough money to fight the case. They wanted to be the people who could help others out with those opportunities and to make it easier for them to get what they needed from the case.

The Frontera Fund was born as a result of their desire for change to civil rights. They wanted to make sure that they could get what they wanted out of the options that they had and that they would be able to make the right type of decisions for their own rights.

They created the Frontera Fund so that people would see that there would be a difference in the way that things were done. This allowed them the chance at making sure that they could get what they wanted out of the opportunities that they had.

Larkin and Lacey continue to run the Frontera Fund. They do what they can to provide civil rights opportunities and to help people have an understanding of the way that their rights work. They also encourage people to take advantage of all of the rights that they have and to use the Frontera Fund when necessary. They are always working to make things better for people and to change the norms of civil rights so that they can be more useful for everyone in the country.
