Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

Sujit Choudhry is well-known for his mastery of the international law and comparative constitutional law. As a scholar of the law, he recently led three of his colleagues in airing their views on the current crisis in Catalonia. Sujit, Zoran Oklopic, Asanga Welikala, and Robert Howse addressed the constitutional issues to President Puigdemont of Catalonia and Minister Rajoy of Spain in an open letter.  Related article on patch.com.

Issues Highlighted

The issues discussed in the letter included how the Spanish government prevented the Catalonians from participating in a referendum last month. According to the four scholars, the occurrence only made the situation worse. It also threatened the European Union foundational principles and can lead to abuse of human rights. It is true that there will be constitutional difficulties if Catalonia secedes from Spain. There is also a group of Catalonians who are against the idea of secession. The scholars noted that though they are the minority, their desires should not be ignored.

Possible Solutions

Sujit and the team of experts suggested dialogue as the best way that will solve the crisis and ensure that the interest of all people is handled fairly. They commended the move by President Puigdemont to put on hold the declaration of independence in Catalonia in a bid to pave the way for talks. They, however, advised him to arrange a referendum that will show the wish of the Catalonians. They noted that the poll would go a long way in showing his commitment to secession. In return, they called for the Spanish government to allow the Catalonia people to carry out the exercise in peace.   Read about his published work on indiawest.com.

Bob Reina Makes Legendary Record Breaking Gift to Humane Society of Tampa Bay

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

Bob Reina has been of great help to the humane society of Tamp, in fact, he has gone above and beyond what most people would do to help an organization that strives to help those who cannot help themselves. He has helped to organize fundraisers, donated video conference software from his company Talk Fusion, and has even adopted a few pets to join him and his family in their home. But now that he has decided that he cannot adopt any more animals to live with his family, he wanted to find another way to help the organization that means so much to his heart. He knew that this new method would have to be something that would make a real difference for the organization and in the lives of the gentle creatures that they work to help. He also knew that just as with everything else in his life, he would have to do something that would get the attention of others so that they would be motivated to help out as well.

After a lot of deliberation and thought he decided that he would help out The Humane Society of Tampa Bay in a grand a glorious way, that would leave people talking for years. He would break the record for single individual donations to the group and give them a massive surge forward in their general operating campaign efforts. He asked them what the record of a single donor was, and even though he almost fainted when he discovered what it would take to break it, He nonetheless pulled out his checkbook and gave with a blessed heart, to the tune of One Million Dollars. The first part of the gift came at the annual charity Gala where he gave $250,000. Later in the year, he completed the gift with another check of $750,000.

Reina figured that this might be a better way to help than to add to his already large family of 11 dogs and cats and the two full-time housekeepers that he employs to keep up with their needs. While he loves all of the dogs he does admit that it is the 5 stray and rescue cats that he is a daddy to that steal his heart more and more each day. Scrappy, Mystery, Chance, Madison and Lucky are like his mischievous and quirky children and bring light to his life (http://www.forbes.com/sites/quickerbettertech/2010/11/10/talk-really-can-be-cheap/#2924b32c4076). The Million dollar donation to the Humane Society of Tampa will help to facilitate adoptions, provide for foster care for animals in need or comprehensive attention, provide for the feeding, sheltering, and medical needs of others, and help to improve facilities for both animal operations and organization administration. Mostly the money will be used to help build a new low-cost vet clinic.

Bob Reina has always been about helping people. He started out as a Hillsborough County sheriff’s deputy before moving on to start a technology company, Talk Fusion, which is the leader in video conferencing software for organizations of all sizes and types. The Talk Fusion suite allows people to connect easily without complicated configurations, downloads, installs, or confusion. With Talk Fusion, the idea is that people can be at their best when they can communicate easily and without delay.

Bob Reina also believes that people can be at their true best when they help others. He has devoted his life to the helping of those how are weaker, less fortunate, or who cannot defend themselves. He empowers his employees to do the same by letting them give away suites of the Talk Fusion software to organizations and groups that they feel strongly about helping. Bob believes that together through effective communication these groups can change the world.

He has certainly changed the world for the Humane Society of Tampa Bay, but he has also stated that this is only the beginning. He has big plans to keep helping this organization to grow and be the best that it can be. But for now, he is not going to adopt any more furry members into his family, or at least he probably…more than likely…might not…for now!

Eric Lefkofsky talks about factors leading to increased healthcare in the U.S.

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

When you take a deep into the current healthcare climate in the U.S, things are looking pretty scary. The U.S. government is using a lot of money to fund healthcare. In the last few years, the U.S government has introduced a lot of interventions that include the ObamaCare to reduce the cost healthcare to the typical U.S citizen. Healthcare costs have hit the ceiling and while health is at an all-time-low. It continues to decline with each passing day.

A recent study that compared health care costs in 1996 and 2013 indicate that American spent extra $933 billion in 2013 compared to what the government spent in 1996. The increased cost of healthcare can be attributed to patients going to extensive and expensive care.
Other factors that are pushing healthcare costs to the ceiling are population growth and aging. According to a new analysis published in JAMA, the U.S. population has increased drastically over the years thereby forcing the government to spend more on healthcare. A significant portion of the population comprises of the elderly individuals who require extensive medical attention.

Increased chronic health conditions

The reality is that a substantial number of Americans are suffering from chronic conditions such as cancer, diabetes, blood pressure, amongst others. Most of these conditions eat too much into the government and family expenditure. It is unfortunate that it isn’t easy to stop some of these conditions. Health costs begin to balloon due to the increased demand for drugs and facilities to diagnose and treat these ailments.

For instance, the study indicates that the cost to treat diabetes was the highest during the study period. Americans spent a whopping $64 billion to treat diabetes in 2013. A significant portion of the expenditure went to pharmaceuticals.

Other factors

The study revealed that low back and neck pain were the second most significant contributors to the increasing healthcare costs in America. However, for these two, the factors were different. Much of the cost was due to the increased care needed for these ailments.

End Citizens United Aims To Overhaul The Election Campaign Finance Laws In The US

Published / by Alice / Leave a Comment

After a series of debates and a long-standing argument that whether the latest United States Presidential Elections were rigged or not, it has at least come to the light that there was some truth to the rumors. There was, in fact, a Russian company that was linked to Kremlin that ran some politically influenced Ads on Facebook. The political ads published by this Russian company had the motive to influence the election campaign of the United States. It points to the fact that the election based laws of the United States is either weak or the election machinery is too weak to have not filtered any influence from the foreign entity.

To ensure that the current United State’s President Donald Trump and his team has no connection with this Russian company that ran political ads on Facebook, Special Counsel Robert Mueller has been appointed. He would be determining whether Trump has played any role in this episode or if he has any connections with this event. However, even though the reputation of Robert Mueller suggests that he would dive deep into the matter to find the truth, there are serious concerns as to whether the Washington would do the same or cooperate in ensuring that happens. As per the campaign finance laws in the United States, there is no limit to how much money an individual or an organization pumps into the elections.

It is this campaign finance law that the End Citizens United, a political action committee, is fighting against. End Citizens United wants to end this law as the flow of campaign money can sway the politicians to work for the interest of their donors rather than the country’s general population. It would create a bias in the judgment of the politicians and the way the government functions. The incident of Russian company intruding the United States’ election only indicates how vulnerable such a campaign finance law can make our country.

End Citizens United works with the grass root donors and does not take large sums of money from wealthy individuals or huge organizations, but thrives on the small donations given by everyday people. The End Citizens United PAC has also helped in bringing awareness about the campaign finance laws in the US among the uninformed public, and why it needs to be overhauled for the long-term benefit of the country. End Citizens United aims to overhaul the campaign finance laws in the future with the help of people’s support and by creating more massive awareness.
