The U.S history is full of controversial and strange presidential pardons issued. The recent one is the one that President Trump issued to Joe Arpaio, the American toughest sheriff in Maricopa County, Arizona.

One of his famous acts is wrongful imprisonment of the Village Voice owner, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. More than 10 years ago, the Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit agents, under cover of darkness, they knocked the doors of two homes in Phoenix, Arizona. The homeowners were Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey.

The agents hauled Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey from their homes and imprisoned them. The charges were; disclosing details concerning a grand-jury investigation. Both Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are involved in the newspaper known as the Village Voice Media. Lacey being the executive and Larkin the CEO.

Earlier in that day on the Village Voice Media publication, Phoenix New Times, they had published a piece that talked about the probe of a grand jury. They did not know that the grand was investing them. Arpaio was frustrated by the increase in the coverage of his most aggressive law enforcement strategies defining the Sheriff’s department since his induction into the office in 1992.

The Tent City of Mr. Arpaio and his several orders against inmates and women holding their status as the immigrants were severally brought up by various publications.

Since Arpaio took a position in the office, there have been a lot of cases where he was informed what was legally right and what was wrong. Without the available evidence showing if the detainee had proper status or not, holding such a person was against the constitutional law.

Such instances were addressed in private before 2011. Finally, they were all over when a lawsuit was filed against Joe Arpaio around ten years ago. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey began exposing Joe Arpaio to the American public. They wrote much about multiple instances of Arpaio and butted heads on many occasions against the department.

When Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey were releasing the stories of Arpaio, several newspapers were no longer covering him. The report on an arrested that was made by the department of Arpaio Sherriff was not something that is not common.

However, during the release of the article by more newspapers from the original work of Lacey and Larkin, the scandal reached to all parts of the nation. It is after 24 days in prison that Lacey and Larkin were released from the prison and they filed a suit against Joe Arpaio.

The suit exposed a lot of information that concerned the malpractices and corruption of Joe Arpaio, and it was settled for $ 3.7 million. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey operate one of the largest organizations nowadays.

Lacey and Larkin utilized the cash for the settlement and the time given to the time given to them when they retired to create the Frontera Fund. Frontera Fund is a group that usually helps Latinos and other society members to protect their first Amendments.

Throughout today’s world there is a multitude of diseases ranging from minor conditions to life-threatening illnesses. There is one illness that can be found in every single country and in every demographic of those countries: aging. The aging process is an entirely natural thing that happens to everyone. That itself cannot be avoided. That does not mean that people cannot stop the diseases that so often come to the elderly. Unfortunately, the present healthcare system is still concentrated on treating age-related diseases like arthritis, osteoporosis, cancer and high blood pressure rather than working to prevent them.

Thy also merely focus on helping the patients cope with them instead of educating society as a whole about their root causes in order to prevent them. Philanthropist and entrepreneur Jason Hope is even now making strides to changing the way the healthcare system addresses the afflictions of age. He is doing this by funding organizations entirely focused on bringing about this change. Such an organization that has remained his primary giving focal point for several years is the SENS Foundation.

SENS is a medical research organization that seeks to help the public gain access to technology that helps counteract aging and aging-related illnesses. SENS is one of several organizations that are involved in what is called biotech. Biotech is the use and study of living organisms to the end of developing products that improve life in some way. There are a number of different biotech areas. For example, there is biotech for the improvement of agricultural methods, biotech for healthier food production, etc. The list is long.

SENS deals in biotech that involves itself with medical developments. SENS, which was founded in 2009, focuses on combating, researching, and changing the public perception of aging. Its motto is: “transform the way the world researches and treats age-related disease.” SENS primarily concerns itself with the repair of living cells and other materials within patients’ bodies. They are confident that this is the key to the anti-aging process. SENS also acts as a funder of other aging research organizations at Yale, Harvard, Cambridge, and the University of Arizona.

SENS is very vocal, voicing its opinions and researched facts among politicians, influencers, donors, and volunteers. In all of this work, it is led by its leader and CSO, Aubrey de Grey. Grey has a B.A. in Computer Science and a Ph.D. in Biology.

Once again, The Chainsmokers make the news after a recent interview with Alex Pall. After only two years, the DJ/Producer Duo has become one of the most successful in the world. Since the release of their top 10 song Roses in 2015, they have consistently proven to be the experts of the Pop EDM world. They have won 24 awards at several awards ceremonies, including a Grammy in 2017 for Best Dance Recording.

After not releasing anything new in the 8 months between the lyric video release of Young in June of 2017, The Chainsmokers have come back with a new sound that is darker and more of a reflection on society than ever before, with their new song Sick Boy. It’s lyrics about the effect of social media on their lives is chilling, but their openness about who they are is refreshing.

If you have never heard of The Chainsmokers, or haven’t closely followed them, they first broke into the limelight with the song Roses two years ago. A year later, they released Dont Let Me Down, which hit number 3 in the US. That same year, they released the #1 hit song Closer, showing the world that they are the hit-makers.

This has all culminated to their new album, which currently has no release date. But so far, the duo has released four songs from the album which have gotten over a quarter billion views together in less than 5 months. Sick Boy alone has gotten 175 million views, and speaks to the younger generation, who have become trapped in a social media run world. The song speaks truth about how narcissistic and negative we have become in our life hiding behind a screen, and is a refreshing breath of relief among songs that beg for more fame, or that complain about how hard it is to be rich and popular. The Chainsmokers have hit a balance between upbeat dance songs, and a close look at society, and plan to develop this sound further in their upcoming album.
