Julia Jackson Takes on the Wine Country

Julia Jackson who is the daughter of Jess Jackson and Barbara Banke admittedly has always had a strong interest in wines, but she has also expressed a strong interest in the business aspect of how running a winery works also. Jackson was born in San Francisco in 1988 and remembers helping her father sort and organizes crates of grapes even when it was 100+ degrees outside all to help the family business continue to work even through the hottest summer months. That nasty, sweaty, hard work is an impression that has stuck with Jackson and she has not forgotten that lesson that taught her since.

Julia Jackson now works at the Jackson Family Wines company and is working to help introduce a whole new generation of young people to the family’s prestigious wines. The Jackson Family Wines is run on many principals including one of sustainability as they strive to practice the best farming practices that have minimal impact on the environment and the world around them while harvesting quality crops with which to make their wines. The family has a 5-step plan in place to use the best farming practices available in the modern century and hopes to have all steps of that plan implemented by 2021. They use these crops to hand craft some of the world’s finest wines, and they use some of their profit to donate to some great causes to help make their communities a better place.

The charitable giving the company does benefit many different charities including the Red Cross, United Way, and the Boys & Girls Clubs as well as they have provided over $6 million to individual charities throughout Sonoma County where their vineyards and businesses are located. The Jackson Family Wine company gives a lot more to the community than great wine, but they help anyone who is out there that just seems to need a helping hand! These donations and this movement the company partakes in not only provide themselves with a sustainable family business, but it also has bettered the lives of countless people in their local California communities, and has helped make California a better place to live thanks to their generosity and philanthropic work!

Securus Technologies Assisting with Catching a Deadly Fugitive

My team of officers was on the hunt for a deadly fugitive in our area that already had put a number of people in the hospital. This suspect would wait in the hallway of an apartment complex, the rush the door of an apartment where he saw only women lived. If she was alone, he would tie her up, beat her, steal everything she owned, and leave her for dead. We knew if we did not stop this fugitive fast, he may kill a young lady before the week was out.

 

When we are hunting a fugitive like this, all our other cases are put on hold as we try to focus out efforts on one thing. We were finding little help from informants, friends, or family, and all our leads were cold, so we were running out of options to get this fugitive before he struck again. On a hunch, we visited our local prison to see if any inmates had an idea who this could be.

 

Now my team knows that inmates would never help an officer for fear of being labeled a snitch, but thanks to Securus Technologies, we had access to their phone conversations instead. Securus Technologies placed a call monitoring system in this jail, allowing officers to be able to listen to the inmates and spring to action.

 

No sooner did we make our presence known inside the jail, one inmate was on the phone talking to friends about our suspect. He warned his friends they should tell our suspect to lay low until the fugitive hunters moved on. We connected the dots and discovered a family connection to the suspect, allowing us to hide and surprise the suspect when he showed up to hide at his cousin’s house. He matched the descriptions of him perfectly, and fingerprints proved we had out suspect finally.

George Soros is Back and More Energetic Than Ever to Make a Difference

George Soros was once known as the kingpin of democratic funding. The man who during 2004 spent more than $27M on various activities in an effort to defeat then President George W. Bush during his reelection campaign, slipped quietly into the shadows following the defeat of John Kerry and the democrats. Now, however, he is back and he is more committed than ever to advancing the progressive platform and ideals through a comprehensive package of funding for a wide range of candidates and causes all over the country.

According to the Federal Election Commission, Soros has spent more than $25M over the past two years in efforts to support the campaign of Hillary Clinton and other Democrats who participated in races to upset the conservative hold on power that has been in place for more than seven years. The primary goal was to keep a democrat in the white house, of course, but other key races ranging from mayors and alderman, through governors and state legislators, and all the way up to senators and congressman were carefully chosen to help offset the extremism that Soros and others feel is starting to be prevalent in the conservative agenda.

In a related note, Soros, 85, was slated to attend his first ever Democratic National Convention in order to see his friend of more than 25 years, Hillary Clinton, receive the official nomination for president, a first ever for a woman in a major political party. He sadly was unable to attend due to the financial situation in Europe needing to be closely monitored. George Soros has been a consistent force in the Democratic Party and its movements for years. This is due to his belief that conservatives and the suppression of individual freedoms go hand in hand.

His political beliefs are formed in part from the experiences that he had as a young boy growing up as a Jew in Nazi occupied Budapest. For him in his formative years, every day was a battle for survival, and the oppression that he saw with his young eyes formed in him a sense of duty to protect social justice, and the inalienable rights of all men. With his financial backing, Soros has been able to help people all over the world, not just through the political realm, but by giving time and money to many various groups and organizations which provide for the needy, sick, and impoverished. While it may seem that George Soros hasn’t been around for a while, rest assured that he has stayed very active in trying to make a difference in the world, and with his resurgent interest in the political arena, he will without a doubt make even bigger impacts in the future.
