We Support End Citizens United Quite A Lot

There are a number of people who are supporting End Citizens United as we are, and we believe in their mission quite a lot. I am happy to help them, and we are quite close to reaching our goal of $35 million. I want to see the mission make it throughout a number of places around America, and I want it to change our local community. This article shows how we are making changes to the way that we are holding elections.


#1: Changing Campaign Laws


There are many campaign finance laws that we have questions about, and End Citizens United wants it to change so that we will give everyone the chance to be elected. It is much easier for someone to run when they do not need to be wealthy, and we have seen that you truly must be rich if you wish to hold an election. There are many people who are bright and have good intentions, but they simply cannot run because they do not have the funds.


#2: Changing The Laws


The laws that must change all govern campaign finances, and they are quite difficult for someone to understand if they have never seen them before. We will find that there are many people who simply do not know what the laws are, and they do not know that big money causes problems that will ripple through all of government. I hope the laws will change so that we will avoid things such as Donald Trump being elected President. We must ensure that the country is better for our kids, but we are seeing that the baby boomers are the first to not care.


#3: Online Information


There are many people who are hoping to use online information to learn about End Citizens United, and I know that they will learn quite a lot if they see the things that I post from social media. I am impressed with the way that the PAC has posted information, and I know that they will continue to post items because they want to teach people how the government actually works. They want to post news stories that will show people what they need to know, and they will learn quite a lot in the process.


There are many people who will find that the End Citizens United PAC is helping their life improve. They are pushing for changes before the 2018 midterm elections, and they are showing people how to get the results they need. This is one of the simplest ways for someone to learn how America elects people, and they will have more ways to make changes to the government that impacts their lives every day.

Education Is The Focus For Philanthropist Betsy DeVos

In 2017, Betsy DeVos was finally appointed to the position of Education Secretary in the U.S. after spending much of the previous three decades seeking education reform in her home state of Michigan and across the nation. My personal knowledge of Betsy DeVos is largely based upon the work she has completed as an education reformer who has been at the heart of the development of a number of different options in the U.S. school system, including school choice, school vouchers, and the rise of the charter school system. It is always enjoyable to discover those who are fighting for a particular cause have other interests that drive them, and I was pleased to discover Secretary DeVos plays an important role on the boards of many local and national not for profit groups. Read more about her philanthropy at MLive.com.

The groundwork for the role of Education Secretary Betsy DeVos now undertakes seems to have been laid from a young age after I read in Mrs. DeVos’ Online biography that her own mother was a Michigan public schoolteacher, a role I believe would later prompt Betsy DeVos to seek out a role for herself as an advocate for at risk students within the Michigan public school system. Interviews I have both read and heard with Betsy DeVos give an insight into her passion for making sure each and every U.S. based student gets the best possible education regardless of where they live; one area that has made a great impression on me is the fact Betsy DeVos has looked to fight for the rights of low income families to provide a better educational experience for their children through the use of school choice programs that take zip code locations out of the equation of where a student attends school.

Although I know of Betsy DeVos as an advocate for education reform I was shocked to discover just how politically active she has been over the years, including her role as the Chair of the Michigan Republican Party. In Michigan a defeat over planned changes to the public school system supported by Mrs. DeVos and her husband, Dick, led to Betsy establishing The Great Lakes Education Project that sought to fight for a greater level of educational reform in Michigan with the expansion of charter school programs; the Great Lakes Education Project would later become the American Federation for Children, which allowed Betsy DeVos to move to a national stage in support of charter schools. As the co-founder of The Windquest Group alongside her billionaire former AmWay group Chair Dick DeVos, Betsy DeVos impressed me with her belief in the charter school system when she established and operated the West Michigan Aviation Academy charter school through her own company to show just how successful it could be.

Has Oncotarget Uncovered E-Cigarette Health Dangers?

Who knew that the consumption of e-cigarettes would result in gum damage? Apparently Ifran Rahman had a sneaking suspicion because he conducted a study to see if his suspicions held true. And they did. As it turns out, the process of vaporization in e-cigs releases inflammatory proteins that irritate the gum cells at a molecular level. On top of this, the flavoring chemicals do much of the same damage and coupled with the vaporization effects. On top of that, they also contain nicotine which is also found in regular cigarettes. This is an addictive ingredient that also can lead to gum disease. The problem that has developed on a macro level is that people believe e-cigs are a healthy substitute to regular cigarettes. In a way they are, but they still have many harmful side effects like noted above. People are simply unaware that they are doing any damage to their health and as e-cigs continue to become more popular we will have many more unknowing victims. Learn more about Oncotarget at Research Gate.

Ifran Rahman holds a PHD and is a professor of medicine. The purpose of his research is to uncover health detriments as well as spread the word about unhealthy consumption. He hopes that e-cig production companies will start to reveal more of the products they use to produce e-cigs. Thus far it seems they have either been a bit selective of revealing what they use or are lazy about identifying all the products in detail. Revealing more details will allow Ifran Rahman and people in similar studies to better identify the health implications of such products and they will in turn be beter equipped to warn consumers of the consequences of said products before it is too late.

Oncotarget is a journal reviewed by peers that identifies better ways of practicing health care. It takes tried evidence of medical professionals and puts it up against other practices to see which ones will have a better end result. The end results they’re looking for is improved patient satisfaction, protocols, and patient management systems. The peer reviewed journal is a great resource for all medical professionals.

George Soros uses wealth as a means to effect positive social change

In the world of philanthropy, no name looms larger than that of George Soros. Over the last 40 years, Soros has been one of the premier philanthropists the world over, donating billions of dollars in an effort to effect change in areas about which he is passionate. From toppling entire governments to changing the outcomes of elections and spreading democracy, Soros has been one of the staunchest advocate for open societies and democratic policies the world over.

Unlike many of his billionaire peers, Soros has never been particularly interested in the accumulation of vast sums of wealth. He has always viewed wealth is secondary, as a means to an end rather than an end in itself. At the beginning of his career, Soros only wanted to save $500,000 so that he would be able to pursue a life of philosophy. He would eventually make many orders of magnitude this amount of money. But he still has stuck with his philosophical roots. Soros has put his wealth too skillful use, creating one of the most formidable charitable associations in the world, the Open Societies Foundation.

One of the areas and which George Soros has decided to focus his philanthropic efforts is in American criminal justice reform. Over the last few years, Soros has pursued a strategy of reforming the U.S. criminal justice system by replacing prosecutors, judges and sheriffs who have a proven track record of taking hard line, law and order stances, which lead to the disproportionate conviction of minority citizens.

Soros has chiefly pursued the strategy through making large donations to progressive candidates, many of whom are often virtually without campaign funds and have not run for political office before. One such example is the case of Aramis Ayala who ran against longtime conservative incumbent Jeff Ashton in the Orlando, Florida prosecutorial race. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.

Ayala was a longtime public defender, who had seen firsthand the ravages of a systemically racist justice system coming down hard on minorities. She had seen the damage that prosecutors wielding their discretion to bring charges in ways that disproportionately affect minorities had on the overall well being of her constituents.

Ashton was the prosecutor in a city that has a large minority population. His policies had long led to serious discrepancies between rates of incarceration and conviction for whites and blacks. Ayala had a plan to change that. But she had no money.

George Soros stepped in with a donation of more than $1.2 million, infusing Ayala’s campaign coffers with sufficient money to run non-stop television ads delineating her positions and reaching the constituents who could put her into office.

The plan worked brilliantly. In an upset landslide, Ayala roundly defeated Ashton, becoming the first African American prosecutor in Florida state history. This momentous event also marks the beginning of a radically transformed Orlando criminal justice system, where minorities, for the first time in many decades, actually stood a chance of being adjudicated fairly before the eyes of the law.

PodcastOne Network Sheds Light on the Relationship between Advertising and Consumer Brand with the Aid of the Edison Research


Norman Pattiz recently lauded the positive results derived from the consultative research partnership between PodcastOne and Edison Research. As the executive chairman of PodcastOne, Pattiz deemed it necessary to conduct a comprehensive study on the benefits of advertising on five prominent national consumer brands across various categories. Carried out during the last six months of 2016 on a pre and post-campaign mode, the test yielded impressive results on the precise impacts on intent to purchase, recall of specific messaging and brand recall.


From the highly acclaimed study, the following proved to be significant findings:

  • Statistics from the post-study revealed that over a third of the respondents had a favorable opinion of a vehicle aftermarket product, which is a 28% increment from previous figures. On the other hand, 22% of the respondents were more likely to use a lawn and garden product.
  • Brand awareness based on particular campaign message for vehicle aftermarket products yielded a 60% increment from the pre-study to the post-study while the casual dining restaurants commanded a 76% increase.
  • Over 50% of respondents favored particular brand post-campaign while a 7% relied on the pre-study setup.
  • Brand awareness on products based on the financial service sector had a 47% increment while the automobile market product increased from 24% to 37%.


Edison Research is credited with positively contributing to the collection and verification of such data. More importantly, they have provided a crystal clear platform on the positive contributions made by new messaging and lesser-known brands focused on building an excellent reputation. Concerning online surveys, several prominent brands each had a 4-6 week’s advertisement period to generate adequate and reliable data.


The study’s core focus mainly revolved around enhancing brand impact with special attention on verifying the podcast format. Alternatively, Norman Pattiz hailed the multi-tiered approach adopted in the integrated advertising program.


While addressing a congregation of stakeholders and the media, Tom Webster, the Vice President of Strategy at Edison Research, hailed the mutually beneficial partnership between the two enterprises in their united quest to providing reliable information on the predetermined study.


Norman Pattiz’s Background


As the Founder of Westwood One, Norman Pattiz is credited with steering the company to unprecedented heights within a short duration. Under his leadership, the enterprise became a leading radio network and provider of entertainment, traffic programming and sports to the Broadcast Industry. Westwood One’s reputation enabled it to manage a host of other media entities such as CNN Radio, CBS News, The Super Bowl and much more.


Norman Pattiz’s political influence dominated the headlines when he was appointed to the Broadcasting Board in 2000 by former President Clinton.
