Running a business from 2002 to the present date is not an easy task. Despite the challenges, hard work and will becomes the precedence of everything. This is how Hussain Sajwani has always been with DAMAC. The company is a real estate developer but not just any other structures or building. DAMAC only deals with development of luxury real estate.

This choice of the niche was a brilliant idea from Sajwani. Most real estate developers deal with all types of building and structures. As a result, the market becomes flooded. By focusing on just one line of real estate development, makes DAMAC professionals in this area. Customers have identified them as the specialties and not distracted by other kinds of projects.

The company is also in business with popular brands such as Versace, Fendi, Bugatti and Just Cavalli. Apart from just building, the company offers management services for those apartments for hotels. Some of the clients are Paramount Hotels and Resorts.

DAMAC has come this far not because Sajwani’s leadership only. He would not have been successful without a team of employees. The company has the best employees working for it. They are specialist with qualifications for various positions. Sajwani is glad to have such a capable team behind him.

Before Hussain Sajwani started DAMAC, he did like any aspiring business person would do. He got a good education and experience. Sajwani has a graduate degree from University of Washington. He worked for GASCO but shortly, he decided to do business. His first idea was a catering entity.

This business thrived and it is now a big venture serving outside nations. Hussain Sajwani is proud of his achievements. Small beginnings should never be despised. They brought the great success and fulfillment he has today.

Sajwani has come a long way as a businessman. He knows that business grows by seeking new opportunities and enlarging the business network. Hussain Sajwani is seeking to work with President’s Trump’s organization. The two individuals have known each other before and related both in business and socially.

The president feels unwilling to directly do business in his capacity. Since the two families are friends, they will agree on another effective way of handling business. Hussain Sajwani family appreciates the good connections and friendship he has with the Trump family.

 

Lacey and Larkin and their Fight Against Joe Arpaio’s Long Criminal Record

The former Sheriff of the Maricopa County in Arizona was Joe Arpaio who was at the post for 24 years before he was criminally convicted. Joe Arpaio had dubbed himself many times as ”America’s Toughest Sheriff” trying to blow up his bubble even further, but in the end, he is now known as “America Worst Sheriff.”

Elected in 1992, Joe Arpaio’s badge was finally taken away in 2007. During his debaucherous ”career” in law enforcement, Joe Arpaio’s name became a synonym of racism, sexism, and fundamental hatred towards people. Joe Arpaio frequently indulged in his preferences and manipulated, tortured, starved, and eventually killed people, or staged their murders as ”unfortunate suicides” as he had once put it.

On many occasions, Joe Arpaio had attracted media coverage because of his ways of upholding justice. He toyed with inmates and wrongfully arrested citizens by forcing them to wear pink underwear, completed with lace details, and put on the classic prison jumpsuit in black and white stripes.

He would also starve them by rationing their daily food in two portions each no bigger than the palm of his hand. The ”menu” usually consisted of expired products, mostly green bologna and rotten fruit for dessert.

Joe Arpaio’s way of keeping the country roads tidy was dispatching a chain of shackled female prisoners every once in a while, usually in the worst of wheater conditions. He later said that it was to help them keep fit and healthy. Other organizing of his included providing civilians with guns to do his bidding and round up Latinos for him to scrutinize. Joe Arpaio had decided that it was up to him to decide to deport Latinos as he saw fit.

During his 24 years as Sheriff, Joe Arpaio had amassed quite the criminal portfolio. His Tent City became well known and attracted even more media attention after he called it his own ”concentration camp” with a broad smile on his face.

Tent City w opened back in 1993 because the prisons were overcrowded. The temperatures in Tent City reaching boiling hot status and prisoners were severely mistreated. The mockery included savage beatings and birthing mothers being tightly shackled to death and left along without help during childbirth.

May died because of Joe Arpaio though he tried to cover up his tracks by staging the murders as suicides. The number of people who were staged to have hung themselves in his cells far exceeded the rates of other counties.

What a coincidence that in those same cells Joe Arpaio had had prisoners suffocated because of confinement to restraint chairs, and many other deaths such as the passing of a woman with diabetics who needed her medicine to stay alive but was denied access to it.

Joe Arpaio was never punished for these and his other crimes. Tump issued the convicted criminal with his presidential pardon and prevented the final sentence.

Now, people like Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are left behind to continue to expose people like Joe Arpaio and to seek justice and help victims.

What Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein Accomplished for Employment Incentives

A stable economy always goes back to jobs. This is why lawyer Jeremy Goldstein has been called upon consistently to aid in the area of employment incentives. Long-term investors often feel they are on the losing end of this conundrum. Goldstein has been an adviser to companies like Verizon, Goldman Sachs, and other large corporations. His expertise is in helping companies learn how to leverage incentives that already exist to aid in reducing strain with their employees. Topics like Earnings per share (EPS), and other incentive based programs can be a sensitive topic. The main challenge is, what incentives should we offer and who should they be awarded to?

 

Many CEO’s and CFO’s continued to battle over this topic, as employees have questioned performance-based programs. The EPS is generally not the issue. Employees and their employers both see it as a positive thing, and a true incentive. Due to their nature they are influenced by the stock market, putting employees on edge as they watch how it fares. The studies conducted on this topic, one of EPS as part of an overall pay structure has shown that companies using this model are without a doubt much more successful. One thing to keep in mind, is that EPS programs can give the business what some would say is the unfair advantage.

 

NYC lawyer, Jeremy Goldstein believes it is simple to find a compromise when it comes to EPS plans. He feels that businesses that launch a performance-based pay structure tend to do better than those who do not. This is also regarded as a way to hold CEO’s accountable for their actions regarding employees and their fairness with pay and benefits. When the performance-based pay structured measures up with what is congruent with the long-term goals of a business, he feels it improves the overall morale of the workplace and encourages employees to perform.

 

Goldstein began his career working with a large firm and later decided it was time to branch out on his own. Obtaining his J.D. from New York University School of Law, Goldstein was able to attract good clients. Working with larger companies was a plus for his career, and still proves today that he is growing well as a lawyer and is quite successful working with cases on employment incentives. He is also listed in the Legal 500 and the Chambers USA Guide to America’s Leading Lawyers for Business.

Reconciling Grand Rapids Betsy DeVos with the Education Secretary

To the people of Grand Rapids, Michigan, Betsy DeVos is the kindest and most generous person they have ever met. However, despite her kind and generous nature, she is no coward and has been on the forefront to fighting for education and labor reforms in Michigan. Her brave and never-surrender personality seems to have disappeared when the billionaire reformist took cabinet office as the secretary of education. Learn more: http://enablediversity.com/2017/08/11/dick-devos-reveals-the-staggering-amounts-of-money-he-donated-to-charity/

 

A woman who has fought all her life to give children equal opportunities and choice is now being complacent as president Trump passed a federal policy banning transgender students from using the bathrooms that match their gender. People who have known and loved Mrs.DeVos were pretty confused by her stand as they expected her to fight the policy and take a stand for the students. However, an aide assured employees of the Education Department that she actually did fight against the move but at the end of the day, the president has executive power.

 

History of Betsy DeVos

 

Betsy was born Elisabeth prince in a very wealthy family in Holland, Michigan. Her political career started early when she joined Calvin College and became actively involved in campus politics. She has led many campaigns, political actions and party organizations including being the chairman for the Michigan Republic Party for six years.

Mrs. DeVos is also a formidable entrepreneur who has served as chairman of the Wind Quest Group, the multi-company group she started with her Husband Dick DeVos in 1989. The billionaire couple also started an aviation school in Grand Rapids to help kids from all backgrounds reach their dreams whether they want to be pilots, engineers or business people. She and her husband have spent millions of dollars and time to support institutions affiliated with education, church, arts and culture and of course sports. She is a mother of four very successful kids and they serve as her driving force to see other people’s children succeed as well.

 

Her Passion

 

Though she has had a long and successful political and business career, Betsy DeVos has one major passion and that is education. In her young ears when her kids were going to school, she realized that most parents would love to take their kids to the best schools in the world but most of them couldn’t afford it. This led to her finding a solution where even poor parents could have a choice of where their kids would go to school even if it’s a private or church-based school. The launch of private school vouchers and charter schools has been well received not only in Michigan but in other states as well. Aside from helping poor kids get equal education as rich kids, she has also started a foundation that supports kids to get an education.

 

Mrs.DeVos passion for education and her outspoken nature on the same led to her appointment as the secretary of education in president trumps government. Though her introduction to the cabinet was rather shaky, most people say she will catch on pretty fast and people should be afraid of her. Her polite and even funny demeanor should not confuse people that she is a laid back person who will look the other way.

Bradesco Agrees To Compensate Depositors For Losses Due To Government Plans According To CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco

The Brazilian government had a plan in place during the 1980s and 1990s that tried to stop hyperinflation, and millions of legal disputes resulted from that plan. More than 60 percent of the people who participated in those government plans are getting a refund, according to Brazilian Federation of Banks. Bradesco along with Itaú Unibanco Holding SA, Santander Brasil SA, Caixa Econômica Federal, and Banco do Brasil SA, are giving money back to depositors who got caught in that faulty government plan. Bradesco’s CEO Luiz Carlos Trabuco thinks the unorthodox government policies like confiscating savings accounts and investment 30 years ago did more harm than good. Trabuco should know. He saw the damage first-hand.

In spite of the depositor compensation issue, Bradesco and Trabuco continue to give shareholders and bank customers something to cheer about. Trabuco is now the Chairman of the Board as well as the bank’s CEO until a replacement for that position surfaces. There are seven qualified men in the hunt for Trabuco’s spot. Trabuco has to give up his CEO role because of his age. Bradesco has a CEO age limit, and Trabuco is past the 67-year-old age limit. Brazilian banking legend and only the second man to hold the position of Chairman of Bradesco, Lázaro de Mello Brandão is retiring at the end of the year, and Trabuco will fill his shoes. Even though the legendary banker is retiring, he will still have a desk, and a frank opinion when it comes to developing new bank strategies.

Bradesco is the second largest bank in the nation, and it is one of the first to have an easy-to-use online banking platform, thanks to Trabuco and Mauricio Machado de Minas, the Chief of the bank’s IT department. Plus, with more than 5,000 bank branches and thousands of ATM locations, Bradesco gives bank customers convenient banking options because that’s what Brazilians want. Trabuco is the maestro of digital banking, but he doesn’t take all the credit. He has a loyal staff of important bank executives, and that’s why seven of them are candidates to replace him as CEO at the beginning of 2018.

Trabuco’s banking career is nothing to sneeze at. He has an outstanding track record when it comes to profitability, assets under management and new banking services. For almost fifty years, Trabuco has given Bradesco the leadership and the expertise it needed to become the best private bank in the country. Mr. Trabuco was not a finance major or an accountant, but his calculating mind and no-nonsense business approach gave the bank the credibility it needed in a country where banks have little credibility. Luiz is at the top of his banking game, and he is ready to pass the CEO position to one of his qualified teammates. IT executive Mauricio Machado de Minas may be the top candidate, but lending officer, Domingos Figueiredo Abreu, and Human Resource Manager, Andre Cano, and are also top candidates.

But some bank employees think Octavio de Lazari, the president of Banco Seguros, may have an advantage. Others say operations executive Josué Augusto Pancini is the top contender. Investment division head, Marcelo Noronha may be the right man for the job, according to some shareholders according to folha.uol.com.br. No matter who gets the job, Luiz Carlos Trabuco will still oversee bank operations, and Lázaro de Mello Brandão will be right next to him watching the bank grow in Brazil’s budding digital banking world. That’s the way Bradesco rolls. The people who work for the bank stay around especially bank executives. Trabuco is the third person in the bank’s history to become the Chairman of the Board.

Despite providing significant funding to prisons, Securus is able to keep rates low

One of the more contentious points in the prison communications industry is the fact that many of the nation’s largest inmate communications companies provide commissions to the institutions in which they are allowed to operate. In fact, many of the bidding processes involved in getting these contracts are centered around the ability of the communications firms to pay the most money possible back to the institutions where they are hired. This means that, in practice, many prison communications contracts are often rewarded simply on the basis of what company can provide the highest rates of return for the institution itself.

 

Understandably, this often leads to complaints on the part of prisoners and their family members, especially in states like Arizona, where prisoners are often forced to pay up to $1.50 per minute to make outgoing phone calls from the states carceral institutions.

 

But in other jurisdictions, like Louisiana, companies such as Securus Technologies, one of the leading inmate communications providers in the country, are able to both provide significant sources of revenue to the institutions in which they operate as well as maintaining low rates for inmates placing outgoing calls. In the state of Louisiana, Securus pays an average of 71 percent of all revenues to the institutions where operates. This high commission rate results in the prisons where Securus has its telephone systems making significant revenues from outgoing phone calls, allowing those prisons to maintain themselves well-staffed and operate enough beds to house the ever-increasing inmate population of that state.

 

But even paying such high commission rates, Securus is able to keep the average price of a phone call in the state of Louisiana down to $0.15 per minute, a rate that is low enough to allow the vast majority of inmates to stay in frequent contact with their loved ones on the outside of prison.
