End Citizens United Sees Senate Midterm Race Getting Closer

     Over the past year, since the election of Donald Trump as the United States President, Democratic candidates for political office have been on a tear. They have picked up 34 seats during this time that were held by Republicans, some for many years if not decades. Districts that routinely voted Republican are now voting to elect Democrats. The political action committee End Citizens United recently released the results of a poll they conducted in the state of Texas that shows that even in that very red state the GOP brand is toxic.

The Citizens United poll showed that the Democratic challenger of the Republican Senator Ted Cruz is closing in when it comes to the number of supporters. This race is unlikely to become a focus of national Democratic organizations due to how red Texas is but, nonetheless, it’s not outside the realm of possibility that even there a seat will be flipped blue. The Democratic challenger is Beto O’Rourke and he is polling at 37% support compared to Ted Cruz’s 45%.

When 2018 started, the Cruz campaign said that he was up 18% in the latest polls. A poll conducted by Google during that time frame said that Cruz was up 14%. So just over the course of a month Beto O’Rourke has made remarkable progress and his campaign of change seems to be taking hold among likely voters.

The biggest challenge for Ted Cruz is that he’s Ted Cruz. He’s getting in his own way and most people, even many die-hard Republicans, simply don’t like the guy on any level. Most people in Texas don’t know much of anything about Beto O’Rourke but they’d still rather vote for him over a person as toxic as Ted Cruz. The End Citizens United poll showed that just 61% of voters know what O’Rourke’s views on policies are but many support him over Cruz anyway.

The poll shows that 49% of voters have an unfavorable view of Cruz while just 38% have a favorable one. These views are unlikely to change as he is such a known politician. His numbers aren’t helped by the fact that he rolled over for Trump and supported him despite Trump insulting him and his wife during the presidential campaign.

End Citizens United has paid for polling in a number of contests up for grabs in the midterm elections. They have also endorsed many Democrats who have pledged to do their part to get the big money out of politics which was unleashed by a disastrous Supreme Court Ruling that allowed for unlimited money to be spent on political campaigns. End Citizens United has also denounced many Republicans whose campaigns are awash in money that can’t even be traced to who gave it to them.

The American Institute of Architects Has Come A Long Way since its Launch in 1857

     In 1857, 13 architects got together and created an organization to represent architects in the construction and design industry including both professional and licensed architects. They called this new organization, the American Institute of Architects (AIA).

Today, the AIA consists of 90,000 members and 260 branches scattered throughout the world, with their main headquarters currently based out of Washington, DC.

On February 1, 2011, the Institute appointed one of their own fellow board members, previously a Chief Executive Officer/vice president of McGraw-Hill Construction, Robert Ivy, to Executive Vice President of the AIA.


Who is Robert Ivy

Born in Columbus, Mississippi, Robert Ivy is an architect who obtained his masters from Tulane University in Louisiana, and his bachelor of arts in Sewanee University of the South, in Tennessee. What is more, in 1993, Ivy was welcomed to the AIA College of Fellows.

Basically, Ivy’s journey began 1n 1981. While working as a critic for numerous global publications, Ivy also took a job at Dean/Dale, as a principal.

In 1996 Ivy became the Editor-in-Chief of Architectural Record Magazine in charge of 33 publications, both digital and print. As a result of Ivy’s enthusiasm and great leadership skills, Architectural Magazine was able to achieve multiple honors and awards in the publishing industry.

Later, Ivy moved on and became the Chief Executive Officer/vice president of McGraw-Hill. Furthermore, in 1998 his excellent management skills were recognized and Ivy received the McGraw-Hill award.

Subsequently, in 2008, Ivy picked up the Website of the year award. Thus, due to all his contributions as an excellent editor in the media business, he also received the G.D. Crain Award in 2009. Moreover, in 2010, the highly prestigious National architectural fraternity called, “Alpha Rho Chi”, named him a Master Architect in recognition of his skilled approach to portraying the value of design. Ultimately, this was a huge honor for Ivy as he was among seven other iconic master architects to receive this award within the past 100 years of the fraternity’s history.

All the while, Ivy continued to remain a loyal member of the AIA Board of Directors and on Feb 1, 2011, he was appointed Vice President of the firm.

Now, Ivy manages the company’s main establishment based in Washington, DC, with an annual budget of over $55 million, and approximately 206 employees.

What’s more is, Ivy continues to take part in many aspects of the architectural design field as he is a Senior Fellow of the Design Futures Council and was privileged to be one of the jurors who assigned Frank Gehry as the architect to design the National Dwight D. Eisenhower Memorial. Hence, he frequently speaks to the public about the important role that architecture plays in our lives and even wrote the definitive biography Fay Jones: Architect that AIA helped publish and is currently working on a third edition to add to the collection.

A Snack for the Hippie in all of Us

     It started off with a simple task that so many other companies have tried to follow: create a snack that is both good for you and good in taste. This was the idea from the brainchild behind Green Park Holdings: Livio Bisterzo. Formed in 2015, Green Park Holdings is a nutrition company with a mission of creating wonderful tasting snacks that are also healthy.

Launched in April of 2016, Hippeas has become the most reputable snack option from Green Park Holdings yet. Hippeas are organic chickpeas that come in four different flavors to satisfy everyone. They are also a vegan snack that is also gluten-free, low in fat, and high in protein and fiber. Coming in a bright yellow package with half of a smiling face on the front, Hippeas are catered to their niche audience, the hippie.

But not only are Hippeas good for you, they are good for the people across the world living in hunger. Hippeas has partnered with Farm Africa, a charity aiming to end the hunger and bring wealth back to eastern Africa. Farm Africa’s mantra: “Peas, Love & Giving Back,” and with every sale of Hippeas, a portion of that sale will go to helping those who need help the most.

The founder of Green Park Holdings, Livio Bisterzo is the brainchild of the Hippeas. He is an Italian entrepreneur out of California, who got started in the entrepreneurial business with an events business back in 2003. He also has experience in the hospitality field along with consumer and other lifestyle brand businesses.

He wanted to create Green Park Holdings to shake-up the global snack market. He saw an opportunity for a company that could not only impact the people who buy the products by making the snacks healthy for them, but also create a brand that creates lasting social impacts across the world.

And so far, with Hippeas, Bisterzo has done just that; projected sales by the end of 2018 at the rate of sales right now, Hippeas would create about $35 million in revenue. Not to bad for a hippie brand.

This was a huge security violation and explains why you should be protecting your information by contacting a digital security company. Everyone is at risk, not just large corporations and government agencies. In fact, the Obama administration budgeted nearly $20 million on cyber security alone.

UKV PLC is offering an opportunity for its customer base in which they’ll be able to invest in a product that is absolutely safe for them to consume, as the production tanks they’re made in are fully sanitized.

Fermenting is a process of manufacturing that’s often overlooked by many wine manufacturers.

The taste and contents of alcohol are determined by how thorough of a fermentation process the beverages undergo. Without undergoing a thorough process of fermentation, it’s likely you’ll be investing in a product that’s less than what you have hoped to purchase. Speaking with one of the vintner’s associates will give you the assistance that you may be needing to finally obtain a wine product that’s totally worth your investment.
