The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund Aims at Correcting Societal Injustices

The Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund was founded by two journalists, Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey. These two got arrested for providing online information on the injustices committed by local authorities. Joe Arpaio, the sheriff in question, went to their homes at night to arrest them for crimes they did not commit. Learn more about Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427818/Michael_Lacey

Upon hearing of the case, they were proved innocent by the court of law. Thus, they were awarded a settlement fee in form of compensation for accusing them falsely. It is this money that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin used to establish Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund.

Since the initiation of the organization, the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund has helped in correcting injustices within the society. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have achieved this by chanelling donations and funds to organizations that fight for human and immigrants’ rights. One of the civil organizations that the Larkin and Lacey Frontera Fund has donated to is the Arizona Justice Project.

The Arizona Justice Project focuses on correcting the societal wrongs. Also, they are committed towards achieving justice for the people of Arizona who cannot fight for their rights on their own. Most of all, the organization has promoted the settlement of immigrants in the United States of America despite the strict laws at the country’s borders. All these have been possible due to the support that Arizona Justice Project has been receiving from The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund.

However, one of the most recent projects that Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are working on is the rooting of organizations that support children of immigrants.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund is helping the Arizona DREAMers in fighting for the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA). DACA is committed towards finding employment opportunities for immigrants.

Also, assists parents to find good school in the United States of America for their children. The organization is facing some challenges following the strict rules that the Donald Trump, the president of the United States of America amended against immigrants.

These state regulations aim at eliminating DACA. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have put up initiatives in the hope of finding justice for the organization.

In the light of this, they are confident that Donald Trump will somehow bend the rules in favour of the immigrants. Indeed, The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund have supported many organizations hence helping them achieve their dreams.

Dr. David Samadi: From Refugee to Chief of Robotic Surgery

Dr. David Samadi is the quintessential success story. Persian-Jews born and raised in Iran Dr. Samadi and his brother were made refugees by that country’s 1979 Islamic revolution. Their quest for safety took them to Belgium and England. Even under such difficult circumstances, Dr. Samadi continued his education. Ultimately, the Samadi brothers reached the US were David graduated High School. The first college degree he earned was in Biochemistry from Stony Brook University.

Today, Dr. David Samadi is Lenox Hill Hospital’s Chief of Robotic Surgery. Drawn to medicine by one simple desire, to help people he has always wanted to be a physician. After graduating Stony Brook School of Medicine and completing his post-graduate work at Montefiore Medical Center and Albert Einstein College of Medicine he became a board-certified urologist.

His skill sets include the diagnosis and treatment of urologic diseases and cancers of the prostate, kidney, and bladder. During his affiliation with Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center, he treated prostate cancer using traditional surgical procedures.

It was at that time that he first learned of robotic prostate surgery. He acquired the skills to perform minimally invasive laparoscopic robotic radical prostatectomy under the tutelage of Professor Claude Abbou of France’s Henri Mondor Hospital Creteil.

The foray into robotic surgery was the turning point of Dr. Samadi’s career. He has since refined the methods taught him by Professor Abbou to make robotic surgery even less invasive. That was only one of the innovations he has developed while practicing medicine.

The Samadi Modified Advanced Robotic Treatment (SMART) has made robotic surgery so efficient that Dr. Samadi and his team can perform five robotic surgeries a day without compromising patient care. SMART also eliminates post-surgical issues like impotence and incontinence by preserving the nerves attached to the prostate. Dr. Samadi has found that because of his SMART technique men are less likely to postpone undergoing prostate surgery.

Dr. Samadi is first and foremost a healer, but in order to be a healer, he must perforce also be a businessman. In order for his practice to thrive Dr. Samadi depends upon the recommendations of prior patients. With a 90% cure rate among the more than 7,000 patients, Dr. Samadi and his team have treated that shouldn’t be a problem.

Dr. Samadi attributes his success to two factors. Greater efficiency through rigid adherence to a routine and creating a family type dynamic within his staff.

First, is to assess one’s financial fitness to ensure that savings and other things are satisfied. David encourages individuals to settle the cash owed such as car loans or student loans or credit cards as quickly as they can. Being fast on debt payment creates ample time for a person to save.
