George Gascon: San Francisco’s District Attorney Leader Involved in Recent Divide with Law Enforcement
While once closely united while working together with the police force as a whole, San Francisco’s crusading District Attorney George Gascon was quite close with the entire police union until recent dates in which he criticizes the entire Police Department diversity of the city- even making several shocking racial remarks during a “booze-fueled” night out with the fellow union leaders. Gary Delagnes, who happens to be the former San Francisco president of the Police Officers Association, has been hired to look into several different allegations of racism and homophobia amongst the department. Delagnes was not only president of the Police Department, but also spent over twenty-five years on the force and was POA president for nine years before retiring in the year of 2013. Eight days after the George Gascon’s appearance before the panel on February 22nd, Delagnes submitted his declaration where he testified that the police union “influences the ability for a chief of police or frankly even a Police Commission to effectuate reform.” He still explains now when questioned about the testimony that, “the declaration speaks for itself.” He also tells sfgate.com, “If called as a witness by Gascon’s blue-ribbon panel, I will testify in more detail about those statements.”
Apparently, it is said that George Gascon promoted very few, to say the least- African Americans, as well as expressing several different doubts concerning the different qualifications of African American captions throughout the police ranks. An affidavit states on the Fox News website, “He became so loud and animated that an African American patron approached Chief Gascon and asked him to restrain himself because his behavior was offending his family.”

North Korea is a very oppressive regime, and there are very few people that have ever managed to leave the country. The few people that have made it out of North Korea often tell truly horrendous tales of what takes place in the country. Yeonmi Park is one of North Korea’s most well known defectors. She escaped the country as a teenager, along with her family. Ultimately, Yenomi Park and her mother made it into South Korea. This country has far more freedoms than North Korea, and she has been able to tell her story. In fact, her story has been heard by numerous people, throughout the world.
Her escape from the country was quite a difficult one. She had to cross a frozen river, during the night. She was with both of her parents, at the time she escaped. When she crossed the border of North Korea, by crossing this frozen river, the Park family was in China. Unfortunately, it is a difficult life for North Korean defectors in China. China takes an unsympathetic stance to those that flee the country. In fact, the Chinese government seeks out defectors. The family had to hide from the Chinese government, and this created a lot of difficulties for the family. Unfortunately, Yenomi Park’s father did not make it out of China. He died of cancer, while the family was located there. However, Yenomi Park and her mother did leave China. In order to do so, they had to spend a bit of time in a Mongolian jail. After several months of being jailed for illegally entering Mongolia, they were able to get into South Korea.
Not everyone that has heard her story believes it though. There are some people that think the story is either fabricated or altered. This is not just coming from government officials of North Korea or those located in the country. In fact, there are those located in various countries doubting the story. However, Yenomi Park asserts that her story is true.

Modern business is increasingly complex. As companies attempt to gain an edge it is easy for them to run afoul of the law. In order to avoid this, a growing number of companies have come to rely on compliance officers. These compliance officers are able to not only help organizations prevent fraud and other serious issues, they can also play a valuable role in addressing many other problems. This has made experienced, well-trained compliance officers extremely valuable in today’s ultra-competitive business environment. Effective compliance officers need to have a solid background in both law and business to help their companies remain competitive yet on solid legal ground.
Growing In Respect And Importance
Compliance officers have long been employed in the healthcare, financial services, and defense contracting because they are heavily regulated industries. Their role is to oversee employee training and design controls to reduce the company’s risks. Recently, manufacturing, IT, professional services, and many other types of companies have begun to realize the value of having a Chief Compliance Officer to help mitigate risk and craft long-term strategy. Compliance officers can also help companies navigate the requirements of and changes to Federal Acquisition Regulation, privacy mandates, and avoid myriad type of liability and legal action.
Helane Morrison of Hall Capital Partners is the perfect compliance officer. Morrison holds a Juris Doctorate from the UC Berkley, passed the California bar exam, and clerked for an Appeals Court judge and a Supreme Court judge. She was also a partner in the San Francisco law firm of Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkin.
After working with the law firm for 10 years, Morrison left to take a position with the Securities and Exchange Commission. During her 11 years there, she helped the SEC bring cases against numerous businesses for fraud and other business and financial crimes. As CCO of Hall Capital Partners, Morrison has the perfect skillset and experience to keep the company out of trouble.
Consequently, compliance and ethics officers and those with specialty backgrounds in training, investigations, audit, and communications have seen a proliferation of new jobs, higher wages, and demand for expertise in these disciplines. Not surprisingly, compliance practitioners have seen a commensurate rise in the number of consulting and membership networking organizations offering professional certifications, training, policy development, and other services, and many a forum dedicated to the robust exchange of compliance best practices.

The Venezuelan people have gained a small victory towards marriage equality in their country. A decision was brought down by the Venezuelan Supreme Court Justice in favor of same sex marriage by declaring Article 44 of the Venezuelan constitution unconstitutional. More info posted on El Venezolano.
This is the culmination of a two year fight to have Article 44 overturned and to have same sex couples rights be recognized. The next step in the process is to have the overturned article declared legally repealed by the National Assembly. Supporters of this movement have high hopes that Article 44 will be renounced even though all the power lies with the now ruling opposing political party.
The Sex and Gender Revolutionary Diversity Alliance (ASGDR) by Osio has been educating the general public and extending support for same sex partnerships for years. The ASGDR has hopes that the law will be renounced due to overwhelming citizen support for the laws appeal. ASGDR has been making public support of this appeal known to the government and have been calling this the citizens fight for equality.
I have hopes that the ASGDR succeeds in strengthening public support for all citizens the right to live the life they seem fit.

We’ve seen the infomercials, we’ve seen facebook testimonials and hundreds of thousands of women have witnessed firsthand what Wen can do to dry, split and damaged hair.
In a recent BUSTLE article, Emily McClure (a fashion and beauty writer) documented her journey (results here: http://www.wen.com/before-after.html)from using common brand shampoos and conditioners, to an all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and styler. Despite having fine hair Emily began to see incredible results after just one application of Wen Hair Care by Chaz Dean.
After long busy days at work Emily was surprised to see that her hair still looked shiny and healthy. After only a few uses she was impressed by how soft her locks were. By the end of her trial week with Wen she was getting compliments from friends on how lustrous her hair looked.
Wen is popular with women of all different hair types because of its carefully selected ingredients that are formulated to cleanse hair, wash away dirt and grime and still leave it shiny, silky and soft. Neither greasy hair nor dry hair, thick hair or thin hair is a match for Wen.
Packed with all natural ingredients including essential oils, unlike traditional shampoos and conditioners Wen doesn’t strip the hair of its natural oils or weigh it down with heavy ingredients.
The concept of Wen has Hollywood in a buzz. This now wildly popular twitter brand of cleansing hair and eliminating harsh chemicals from your hair care routine has not only put Wen by Chaz on the map, it’s also revolutionized the way people look at hair care.
Instead of a bathroom full of products, dedicated customers of Wen have ditched the old way of doing things and with Chaz Dean’s haircare line alone they’re able to maintain a healthy head of hair that is easy to style, easy to maintain and healthier than ever.

Millions of people are already playing the stock market game, which makes other people want to see what all the fuss is about. However, the stock market on thestreet.com is a little harder than people think. A lot of people think you can invest in a large stock and expect a big return. However, if you invest your money into smaller investments, you are not committing yourself to one particular stock and expecting a big return in the end. Investing in smaller stocks can actually help you limit the losses and improve your chances of becoming successful in the long run. As they say, it is not always good to put all of your eggs into one basket. It is better to branch out a little and test the waters a little to see what works and what does not work. Investing is a career move, and if you end up making the wrong move, you could lose money and be in trouble. Why not invest your time, money, and chances of winning into someone you can trust and can get behind?

One tip Igor Cornelsen suggests is to look for companies that have been productive consistently. These companies for Igor Cornelsen may not be the biggest or the hottest companies on the market, but you want to choose corporations that have a long history of consistency as this will give you a better return. Instead of following in everyone else’s footsteps, take a step back and look at the stock market and see what works best for you.
