New Times Co-Founders Resent Arpaio Pardon

In October of 2017, President Donald Trump pardoned former Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Susan R. Bolton, U.S. District Judge validated the process, and Arpaio walked free. Many saw this event coming. Arpaio’s tenure as Sheriff contained much controversy, with many crying scandal across his 24-year rule. Two such people were Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, co-founders of Phoenix New Times.

Both Lacey and Larkin became dogged pursuers of Arpaio during his tenure, relentlessly calling the sheriff on the carpet and exposing many scandals. Many have frowned upon Arpaio’s questionable treatment of the Latin community, especially in the field of illegal immigration, and the duo play vital parts in his fall from grace. Being outspoken as they are, both Lacey and Larkin had choice words to say about Arpaio’s pardon

Michael Lacey believes the pardon was an act of corruption. In a statement he marked the negative aspects of Arpaio’s six terms, communicating his displeasure with Arpaio, the system, and the president himself. A dropout from Arizona State University, Lacey became the executive editor of the Phoenix New Times in 1970. Read more:Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Jim Larkin | Angel.co

The paper was a response to the conservative media that existed on campus, and their coverage of anti-war protests for Vietnam. Lacey and fellow students used the paper to print the other side of the story, to focus on the unrest and stand up for the 1st amendment.

The New Times has existed as an alternative news source ever since. Lacey would gain a business partner in Jim Larkin a few years later, and his inclusion would ultimately take the business to the next level.

Jim Larkin is also an ASU dropout. He joined the New Times in 1972. His knack for advertising helped the fledgling paper stay afloat, and his business sense eventually led to his position as CEO of the duo’s coast-to-coast chain of alternative papers.

Displeased with Arpaio’s pardon Larkin also made a statement calling the former Sheriff an antecedent to Trump. He went on to state that he had zero respect for the man in every category save his political insight, which allowed him to work the system to a full pardon.

Arpaio arrested and jailed Larkin and Lacey on October 18, 2007, following a story that revealed subpoenas targeting the writers and staff of the New Times were issued by a grand jury. The resounding public outcry from numerous supporters led to the subpoenas thrown out, and both Larkin and Lacey being released in 24 hrs.

The duo sued Maricopa County for wrongful arrest, leading to a $3.75 million dollar settlement, which they have since used to create the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund. The fund, founded in 2014, assists Latin groups throughout Arizona by distributing the settlement money from their case.

In the wake of the pardon, which they see as nothing but political maneuver, both Larkin and Lacey hope the decision will come back to haunt the president. Just like their fund continues to haunt Arpaio.

Paul Mampilly Says Bitcoin’s High Prices Are A Bubble

Paul Mampilly is a credible investment expert because he does a lot of research on stocks and picks the ones that are primed to do well in the near future. Of particular interest to him are cryptocurrencies including Bitcoin which he says he believes in because of its decentralized currency format. But he also says it should be a stock that his followers avoid because it rose up so high in 2017 that it’s now sitting on a bubble. Mampilly likened this bubble to what happened back in 2000 when investors had invested too much in internet-based companies too soon that it led to the dot-com crash and said that a similar thing was taking place now. Mampilly said investors should consider an alternative cryptocurrency investment that isn’t as well-known but is in circulation right now, and he explains what it is in his “Profits Unlimited” newsletter.

Paul Mampilly gained his knowledge of investing from over 10 years in banking and several more as a hedge fund manager. He came to the US over 30 years ago from the UAE, though he’s originally from India and in 1991 he graduated with a bachelor’s in finance from Montclair State University. His banking career began as a research assistant at Deutsche Bank and saw him rise to advisory positions at ING, Banker’s Trust, Royal Bank of Scotland and a large private Swiss bank. After leaving banking, Mampilly became a consultant at Capuchin Consulting in 2003, but then he moved to Wall Street as a Managing Director for Kinetics International Fund, one of the highest ranked hedge funds in Barron’s magazine. Paul Mampilly helped clients make over 40% in investment returns and helped the firm raise their portfolio to $25 billion in AUM.

Outside of his professional office Paul Mampilly invested on his own and made big gains when he purchased Facebook and Netflix stocks and sold them after making more than 300%. He also won the Templeton investment competition in 2009 when he invested $50 million during the recession and made a 76% gain on it. In 2016, Mampilly decided to change things and dedicated his work to helping middle class investors, and Banyan Hill was who he wanted to write for because they vet their authors to make sure investment information is authentic. He gained a large following within a month as people took the advice he gave them at “Profits Unlimited” and wrote reviews stating it really worked.

Jeremy Goldstein Offers His Professional Advice on EPS and Pay-Per-Performance

Earnings per Share has often been a topic of conversation in recent days. Some recent controversy surrounding the disadvantages of the pay-per-performance model has caused some companies to drop it completely. While the advantages of the model are clear, providing increased incentive for employees to work towards the benefit of the company, and providing a profound effect on stock prices, it’s not without disadvantages. However, Jeremy Goldstein believes that it doesn’t have to be dropped completely. He provides his insight on the EPS model, as well as a compromise that allows you the advantages of pay-per-performance without the drawbacks of EPS.

 

 

The Drawbacks of EPS and How to Fix Them

EPS is fantastic. It provides numerous advantages and its a proven tool for growing your business. But it doesn’t come without drawbacks. Higher-ups are easily able to take advantage of the system, sometimes using it to manipulate metrics to their benefit. This manipulation can cause lasting damage to a business and misleads shareholders in order to drive up share prices and make a quick buck. This is, in part, due to a core instability within EPS which makes it unreliable and prone to fluctuation.

 

But there is a solution that allows you to use EPS for long-term benefits, and it comes in the form of a compromise. As Jeremy Goldstein explains, if executives and CEOs are held responsible for using EPS to manipulate share prices, or damaging the business in other ways, it would encourage long-term planning, align the metrics with that goal, and allow the company to grow and prosper.
