Gareth Henry is no stranger to discrimination, and he had to leave his homeland of Jamaica. It got so bad that his life was threatened. He made the headlines when he was brutally beaten in front of a mob of 200 people who would do nothing to help. He was leader for the Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals and Gays, also known as J-Flag. He took over the position of leader after Brian Williamson, the previous leader, had been stabbed to death.

Because of all the threats, he ended up fleeing to Canada where he now resides. He’s a social worker and gay rights activist who has also petitioned to bring a legal challenge against his former home of Jamaica.

Gareth Henry has lost 13 of his friends and had to identify a few of their bodies. He suffered an injustice, but complaints to the Jamaican Ministry of Justice fell on deaf ears.

Many have even been forced to live in the sewers or in cemeteries just to stay alive, and that is no way to live.

Gareth Henry is a volunteer at the Rainbow Railroad where he is helping others to escape their persecution and even death. He is also an advocate for HIV/AIDS, and he has already helped many to escape from the persecution.

He has a modest upbringing, and when he was in his teens he had feelings for the same sex, but he had to keep it quite. He is not alone, and many other young men have been through similar experiences.

One such technology-based service that is being designed by Dr. Mark McKenna is known as OVME.

Flashback Friday.

A post shared by Dr Mark McKenna (@dratlanta) on

Millions of Americans spend billions of dollars throughout the year on cosmetic services. The development of OVME is now giving even more patients access to cosmetic services. OVME is a website and app that allows patients to explore what aesthetic and wellness treatment options are available for them. Patients can connect with practitioners in their areas and can even complete a video consultation through the website or app. These services can then be scheduled at a time that is convenient for the patient and at a location that the consumer and the practitioner agree on. In some circumstances, the patient may even be able to have the aesthetic services completed in the comfortable setting of their own home.

The OVME platform that Dr. Mark McKenna has designed will benefit both doctors and patients alike. Doctors will have more chances to reach new customers and change their lives for the better and new consumers who otherwise would not be able to receive aesthetic services due to scheduling conflicts will be able to schedule services that are convenient for them. For everyone involved, OVME is a great resource for the aesthetic industry.

The Brazilian agribusiness is enjoying a period of steady growth and development thanks to greater production rates than ever before and an evolving and increasingly interconnected world.

Maluf is the president of Eucatex, a giant of agribusiness that was founded in 1951. Learn more at about Flavio Maluf

However, nothing could be further from the truth. Flavio Maluf and his company are at the forefront of maintaining standards to ensure that the region preserves the environment as best as it possibly can.

If you go to the company website, there are entires pages dedicated to explainEucatex’s mission to preserve the natural environment. From the heavy usage of recycled materials to entire programs designed to provide care for the natural surroundings, it is clear that Maluf and his people take stewardship of the Earth very seriously.

With China on the rise as a global consumer and the ever-present needs of the European Union, Brazil has more opportunity than ever to expand their agribusiness. More business means more money and more money means more opportunity to pull the country into a bright new future for its people.

Yet as positive as all of this is, men like Flavio Maluf understand that progress must be approached in a responsible and sustainable way. After all, a reckless use of resources will only result in future struggles. With the management aid of the Secretariat of International Relations of the Ministry of Agriculture, Brazil is pushing forward while keeping an eye on all of the important things already established.



The name Freedom Checks originates from Badiali, but it is centered on real investment strategy. With Master Limited Partnership, every investor is rewarded a return on the cash injected into the investment either on the monthly or quarterly basis.

Once you invest in the MLPs, you are purchasing units of a firm and get a portion of the profit depending on how the business performs. According to Investopedia, the companies that use the Freedom Checks are most in the gas and energy industries. They are an openly traded limited corporation where it merges the advantage of a corporation with that of public limited companies, implying that taxes are not paid like usual companies do.

This sounds more like what transpires when you invest in stock marketplace, but the only difference is that the business must create 90% of their income from natural capital in the US. Badiali claims that 568 businesses are part of this Master Limited Partnership (MLPs), but he only proposes that only, 5 of them that own or manages more than a billion dollars in raw resources such as gas, timber, oil, and mineral together with core and valuable metals like gold and silver.

As for the amount of cash you will receive for your investment, experts claim that MLPs usually results in the highest dividend rates accessible to investors. This ranges from 5 -9 %; this is to say that if you invest $10 like the Freedom Checks adverts say, you will get back less than one dollar every year. This can be a lucrative investment if you can invest huge sum of money, such as millions of dollars every year.

Therefore, Freedom Checks is not a hoax, but a smart marketing trick that entices you to purchase a subscription service.

In 2002, Fortress Investment Group kicked off on a mission to expand the company to become an alternative investment firm. They needed an expert who would introduce and manage hedge funds and credit funds in the organization. That was when they recommended Peter Briger to join them for that role. After joining Fortress, Briger was blazing with morale.

During this most recent election cycle in the United States, the Republican party has been put on the defensive. This cycle has seen the Democrats pick up a total of 34 seats. The telling part about this resurgence from the Democrats is the fact that many of these seats have been picked up in areas that have traditionally voted Republican in the past.

Recently, a poll put out by End Citizens United has demonstrated the Beto O’Rourke is quickly closing in on longtime Republican incumbent Ted Cruz. End Citizens United is an organization that is committed to lowering the amount of influence that money has over the political and election system in the United States. If O’Rourke is able to pull off this unexpected upending of Cruz in Texas, it would absolutely be a major moral victory for the Democrats.

Like on Facebook

A huge part of the success that O’Rourke is enjoying on the campaign trail is the fact that he has been willing to really put in the work while getting his name out there. He is supported by End Citizens United due to his willingness to work hard and this is really starting to resonate with many voters. The polls are reflecting an appreciation of the fact that O’Rourke has been on a non-stop campaigning across the state of Texas. When it comes to political issues, the End Citizens United endorsed candidate Beto O’Rourke ha a platform that focuses on workers. His stance on immigration is also moving the hearts of many voters who have been unsatisfied with the current Republican stance. O’Rourke’s platform is one of giving welcome to immigrants as well as making sure to acknowledge the fact that they have been a huge part of the overall makeup of the United States.

The question will now be, has the work O’Rourke has put in going to be enough to oust a long-standing politician the likes of Ted Cruz. There does seem to be a trend in the state of Texas that demonstrates that left-leaning political movements are becoming more popular. End Citizens United polls do continue to show Cruz in the lead, but it also appears that the lead is narrowing and this really could come down to the wire in this critical election between Ted Cruz and Beto O’Rourke.
