Robert Ivy: CEO Of American Institute Of Architects

As human beings, our bodies require regular exercising. This is something that we may all have learned in some medically related subjects. However, as much as it stressed on, many of us do nothing to accomplish it. We tend to like the unhealthy living ways which ultimately lead to health problems. Our health should be the priority in anything that we do. For good performance, our bodies need to be in the best shape. We should, therefore, make sure that in as much as we are working. We need to have time to know a few things about healthy living.
 
There is one thing that we may not know. There is a high correlation between design and our health. How we perform in under one environment may not be the same in a different environment. For someone working in an area that has a supply of fresh air and good outside view, the performance may be different from those who work in closed rooms with poor ventilation. The performance of our body is critical, and therefore, for maximum productivity, we need to have to enable environment. Design of the office space is critical as just any other working or living space. If we embrace good design work, we might increase our productivity even without knowing that we are doing so. It will happen automatically because there is a way our bodies will respond to the environment.

According to architect Robert Ivy, there is a lot that design work can do in helping people live a better life that is healthy. Design can help us exercise unknowingly. A good example is a building that uses stairs versus one that is using elevators. People in a building that has stairs may lead a healthier life than their counterparts in elevators because they are exercising. As basic as this may look, it has an impact on our lives.
 
Now, this is just the beginning of the thing we should expect going forward. Architects now are working with people in the health industry to ensure that there is an aspect of healthy design. The design may be intended to make us think deeply about things or even boost our performance. Generally, architects are now paying more attention to this aspect of design as they try to revolutionize the building industry. With innovative people like Robert Ivy who are concerned with the productivity of the people, this is a milestone that will be set in the industry. Robert Ivy believes that there is much architects can do to impact the lives of the people positively.

Since many inmates are given the ability to rent tablets. This makes visitation periods easier for them to handle on both sides of the bars.

Many of the families who use their services are facing financial issues; either they do not have bank accounts or they do not have high enough credit to qualify for a credit card. Luckily for these individuals, Securus Technologies has recently decided to purchase another corporation, and an online financial firm called GovPayNet.

 

GovPayNet may be able to settle the payment issues that Securus customers face. Instead of only accepting a valid bank account or a credit card GovPayNet also accepts other forms of payment for their services. Customers would have the ability to use a prepaid credit card they can purchase from any grocery store, PayPal, check by phone, and other similar payment options would be at their disposal.

The Sins of Joe Arpaio through Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin Eyes

In a move that came as a surprise to only a few people, Susan R. Bolton validated President Trump’s pardon on the former County of Maricopa Sherriff, Joe Arpaio. The former Sherriff faced charges for contempt of court stemming from a racial profiling lawsuit filed against him in 2007. The presidential pardon comes a few week before his alignment in court for sentencing.

The pardon marks the end of a long time trial that saw the arrest of Michael Lacey and Jim Larking of Phoenix New Times. New times had covered a series of scandals that ended the reign of Arpaio. According to Lacy, pardoning of Joe by Donald Trump marks only to show how corrupt the president plays. Arpaio has been at the center of torture and racism.

Additionally, his term was riddled with brutal jail conditions, inmates’ suicides, and illegal diversion of over $100 million in jail funds. There were sex crimes involving minors and harassment cases involving Latinos that resulted in the rise of Melendres v. Arpaio. Despite intervention from the President, few believed that the former sheriff would spend time behind bars.

According to Lacey, the pardon expresses a failed justice system. It’s a simple and stunning way of cultivating and allowing evil to thrive. Lacey and Larkin persistently scrutinized the sheriff resulting in their arrest in October 2007. Those who hardly knows Joe Arpaio, his resume can fill a small library.

He was elected to office in 1992 as a reform candidate. He would later come to be known as the toughest American sheriff after his retirement as a drug enforcement administration official. His was a career that involved punishing inmates by forcing them to do undesirable activities.

Also, in some instances, Arpaio armed civilians and instructed them to do his dirty work. The road to the lawsuit began in 2004 when New Times published a column that revealed how Arpaio was hiding his and his wife’s ownership of real estates valued at over $700,000.

As a result, he embarked on a quest to have the journalist investigator prosecuted. Aware of the grand jury being impaneled in their case, Larkin and Lacey published an article that led to their arrest. The improper arrest cost the county $3.75 million in the settlement after Larking and Lacey sued. Lacey believes that there is always a limit to everything. Today, Trump’s approval rating has dipped by 30 percent.

Jim Larkin dropped out of Arizona State University and teamed up with Michael Lacey to start Phoenix New Times. Lacey became the executive editor while Larkin headed advertisement section. With a focus on social and political issues, the paper gained prominence. In 1983, New Times acquired Westword. The purchase of Westword was the beginning of a prosperous future that would embrace a multimillion-dollar conglomerate.

Today, it’s associated with investigative reporting and also covers food, music, art, and local events. In 2012, the two sold WM to longtime company executes. During that time, the chain had almost 9 million print readers and scooped several journalistic honors.
