Dick DeVos And His Impressive Charity Campaigns

Richard Marvin DeVos Jr, better known as Dick DeVos has laid the blueprint for successful philanthropy, an accomplishment he’s managed on top of running an investment firm and even spending time running for public office. Currently his wife, Betsy DeVos is running the US Education Department while he’s still running things back at The Windquest Group company that they both founded. Dick and Betsy have selflessly given out of their compensation and profits to make Grand Rapids a leading city in Michigan’s non-profit sector and their family foundation has addressed three basic areas of need. A report earlier this year showed that they had given a total of $139 million over the course of their professional careers

 

Led primarily by Betsy DeVos, the DeVos Foundation has spent a lot of money on education both to help private schools with costs, students attending those private schools, and also on efforts to fund voucher programs. Dick DeVos ran for the Michigan Board of Education back in 1990, and in 1992 he led the foundation to form the Education Freedom Fund to start a series of scholarships. Later on the foundation became a key driver for charter schools including helping open the West Michigan Aviation Academy in 2010. His university projects include starting the Institute for Arts Management at the University of Maryland, and the Thunderbird School of Global Management at Arizona State.

 

Other areas the $139 million has gone to include healthcare for which Dick DeVos received the Art of Giving award from the Spectrum Health Foundation. He also has given to ArtPrize, a non-profit arts competition hosted annually in Grand Rapids. He’s also a key donor to political advocacy groups such as the Heritage Foundation, Action Institute and Constitutional Society. He also has donated to churches such as Mars Hill Bible Church and the Willow Creek Association.

 

Dick DeVos was born in 1955 and at age 19 was working with his father, Richard DeVos Sr. and his brothers Daniel and Douglas as well as sister Cheri at Amway Corporation. He also served as president of the Orlando Magic briefly when his family bought the ownership shares in 1991. He served as CEO of Amway for 10 years and also built its Alticor company, and the focus during this time was mostly on international sales. He had founded the Windquest Group in 1989 and made it his top priority in 2002.

 

Dick and Betsy have contributed quite a bit of their money to political candidates over the years, and in 2006 Dick DeVos decided to become one himself when he ran for governor. He didn’t win this election but he did become a highly recognized figure among conservative grassroots activists in the coming years. He backed Republican lawmakers in 2012 to pass a bill that became Michigan’s first right-to-work law. Dick DeVos does enjoy recreational activities including boating in the annual summer Chicago-Mackinac race on Lake Michigan.

How Traveling Vineyard Compares With Other Home Money Making Opportunities

There are plenty of money making opportunities that one can take on from home. The only thing is that not all of them are equally as lucrative. Therefore, it is important to find one that can earn a lot for the individual. At the same time, it has to be matched to the person’s skill set.

Thanks to the internet, it is easier to find work from home opportunities. The following are the different money making opportunities.

One opportunity is giving opinions. This is not that lucrative of an opportunity because there are not that many of them available for any user. Another opportunity is to get paid to write. While it can potentially earn people tons of money, it takes time for people to build up the clients they need in order to earn a living. Fortunately, there is one opportunity that is going to give people the income they need at a quick rate.

This opportunity is being a wine guide for Traveling Vineyard. This is an easy thing to get into because they are willing to train newcomers so that they can host wine events. The newcomer is going to be assigned a wine guide that will train him. He will show him all of the different aspects of running an event. Once he is ready, then he can run his own events.

One of the best things about Traveling Vineyard and other money making opportunities is that one can choose when he wants to work. The one thing that makes Traveling Vineyard stand out from all of the other opportunities is that there is no limit to how much one can make and when. The other opportunities may allow people to work at anytime, but all of the work will be taken away at a certain time. Traveling Vineyard is the one place that truly has flexibility.

The Groundbreaking Bone Regeneration Procedure Performed By Dr. Cameron Clokie In Canada

Peter Russel is a sixty year old retired banking executive who lost a portion of his jaw to a benign tumor. Due to the skill and expertise of Dr. Cameron Clokie he has regrown seven centimeters of bone. He is one of eight Canadian patients who have undergone a type of bone regeneration changing reconstructive surgery.

Dr. Cameron Clokie practices at the University of Toronto and heads oral and maxillofacial surgery. His new techniques allows bones to grow in the same fashion as in a new baby. The procedure is a milestone in tissue regeneration and researchers are seeing their dream come to life.

Dr, Clokie presented cases in regenerative medicine at a U of T conference and the fact Mr. Russel’s operation only took four hours was amazing. The fact he was skiing two weeks later was astounding. The jaw reconstruction involved the forming of a putty-like gel from a growth protein. Read more: Our Team – Induce Biologics

It was modeled after the missing section Mr. Russel’s jaw shape. With the support of an implanted titanium rod the model was placed into the missing section. After five days blood cells were growing over the model and the gel started to dissolve. The jawbone started growing and closed off the gap.

The technique is effective but incredibly expensive. The protein used comes at a price of $6,000 and is not covered by Medicare. Mr. Russel was lucky to be able to afford the procedure. The protein is called bone morphogenetic protein and also referred to as BMP.

Marshall Urist made the discovery in the 1950’s at the University of California. He spent four years working with Dr. Cameron Clokie and passed away in 2001. The most famous current use was countering bone loss around Dionne Warwick’s teeth. Learn more about Cameron Clokie: https://www.yellowpages.ca/bus/Ontario/Toronto/Dr-Cameron-Clokie/390278.html and  https://www.dentevents.com/speaker-profile/dr-cameron–clokie/c12024915

Towards the end of the 1990’s Dr. Clokie wanted BMP tested as a tool for reconstructive jaw surgery. He discovered how much bone was required to make BMP. It took the leg and arm bones of forty cadavers to yield three milligrams. He eventually turned to a U.S. biotech firm capable of producing BMP using the cells in Chinese hamsters. Since then he has been able to perform the procedure on eight patients.

Mike Heiligenstein’s Mobility Solution and Mopac

It was once the argument of Viewpoints editorial that technology would be the one to solve the congestion on the Texas roads. Mike Heiligestein agreed with the editorial even as he challenged his staff at the ‘Central Texas Mobility Authority’ to come up with ways to make this a reality.

 

Mike insisted that the authority thrives on innovation. The ‘New MoPac lanes’ being built are likely to have technological features to help with the management of traffic. The supply versus demand scenarios would be analyzed and a prediction made to help in the easing of traffic. Here, the idea would be to ensure there is flow on the express lanes in spite of the time.

 

The mobility body looks to embed ‘fiber lines’ on the road projects that are betwixt US 290 and ‘the port’. The fiber lines will be put in place ahead of the anticipated period when vehicles communicate to roads.

 

CTRMA and Metropia, an application used to help motorists avoid congested routes, will work well in easing traffic on the roads in Texas. Another strategy is to encourage motorists to share their vehicles with others who are headed to the same destination. Statistics have demonstrated that many a drivers go to work and back home alone in their vehicles.

 

The need for people to use bicycles more often was highlighted. Walking is also encouraged as a way of easing the number of vehicles on the roads. Again, the igniting and turning off of cars while on the road is another cause of congestion. Now the use of a ‘highway emergency response operator’, to help motorists stranded on the road, will be solution for both the stranded motorists and other motorists on the road.

 

Mike Heiligenstein

 

Mike Heiligenstein works for the ‘central Texas Regional Mobility Authority’ which is in Texas. Under his leadership CTRMA is determined to ease the issue of traffic congestion in the state. Mike went to university and graduated with a Bachelors degree. He furthered his education by pursuing a Master’s degree in government and business administration. Mike has encouraged partnerships with the counties of Texas to help ease the congestion problem on the roads of Texas State.

 

CTRMA

 

This was an authority set up in 2002 to help in the improvement of transportation in Texas area. The authority operates from Williamson. CTRMA’s mission is to implement solutions that are innovative and expedient to the decongestion of the roads in Texas area.

 

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin: Introducing the Frontera Fund

People are fleeing their homelands and becoming refugees in the process as wars break out and poverty creeps in around the world. At any given time, millions of people every day are estimated to be experiencing violence and abuse, and these victims of human rights abuses are being held captive by human traffickers, drug traffickers, rapists and other criminals.

Being oppressed and abused day and night, these people do not have any other choice but to accept their fate in the hands of these lawless people, just to survive for another day, as their human rights are continuously violated. Some brave hearts who managed to fight back and escape their captors have been trying to look for a better life overseas, but then they often end up being illegal immigrants. Read more: Michael Larcey | Crunchbase

One fine example of this scenario is the current migrant crisis that is sweeping all over Europe, as well as the drug war all over Latin America. People from war torn Middle Eastern nations and impoverished African countries have been crossing the Mediterranean and Turkey just to get to the continent, and in the American continent, people from Spanish speaking nations who have been in extreme poverty for years have been walking towards the United States border to seek refuge.

The European and the American governments have been deporting them back to their dangerous home land, sometimes ending up being executed by their autocratic state or be killed by weapons of war. These people just wanted to start up a new life away from their conflict stricken areas, but still being looked down by the countries they thought would have cared for them.

This is what Michael and Jim wanted to end – the maltreatment of immigrants who have come to seek refuge to another country. The duo have been the face of volunteerism for some time now, as they try to help out immigrants coming from Mexico, Central America, Caribbean and the rest of South America to get through the United States and start their life anew.

Before being dragged into the spot light, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been very busy with their own newspaper, which was named Phoenix New Times, as well as their philanthropic drive. This newspaper company was established by the two, along with their classmates back in 1970. The two have been very vocal about their point of view and what they believe the government should do.

Everything is running smoothly with the two but one of the greatest tribulations that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have to face just came back from somewhere. They were arrested recently because of suspected conspiracy with a third party website host, where in they printed a classified information, and for publishing the address of the Maricopa County Sheriff.

The judges found out that the lawsuit by Maricopa county filed to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin break their rights, and then the two filed a counter lawsuit for detaining them and won. The claims that they managed to get is around $375 million, as they stated that the judges are too racist to for non-Arabs. These proceeds went directly to Lacey & Larkin Fund, and people who seek help with the newly created business flocked the horseman.
