Individuals Gather At Orange Coast College As The Corpse Flower Prepares To Bloom

Orange Coast College is waiting for a rare and smelly flower to bloom. This week massive groups of admirers are expected to flock to the school to witness the corpse-like scent of the flower. The technical name of the plant is the Amorphophallus titanium and it will be on display in the administration building. The school nicknamed the plant Little Dougie and it first appeared in 2006. The plant is nearly five feet tall and weighs more than thirty pounds although some of these plants reach 200 pounds.

 

The Little Dougie comes from the island of Sumatra in Indonesia and the odor is caused by beetles crawling into the plant to pollinate. The pollen is then moved from the male flowers to the females. The flowers are pollinated by hand at the college. The odor is intense and lasts for four or five hours. When the flower opens it has magenta petals that resemble a skirt surrounding the plant with the usual time for the bloom being in the evening. It takes approximately ten years for the plant to bloom for the first time and it lasts for one or two days. The plant then blooms every three to five years. More than 1,000 guests visited the college in 2014 to see the eleven year old flower bloom.

 

Orange Coast College is set on 164 acres in Costa Mesa and is only a few minutes from the beaches in Southern California. Since the college opened for classes in 1948 they have become one of the finest and largest colleges in the nation. Every semester the college hosts 25,000 students. Orange Coast College is known for their technology and exceptional facilities. Their nautical program is one of the most publicly acclaimed programs as well as one of the largest. The program in Career and Technical Education is attended by almost half the students at the college.

 

Based on the number of students who receive transfers to the California State University systems, Orange Coast College is one of the higher ranking community colleges. Many students additionally transfer to private universities and colleges all over the nation.

Kate Hudson is Creating More Buzz About Fabletics

Fabletics is definitely making the process of working out much easier. People that are pleased with the brand are talking about it on social media, and this is really helping Kate Hudson a lot. People are getting a chance to discover Fabletics because they have friends that are talking about it. People are posting videos of themselves and their favorite athletic gear in training videos. This is saying a lot about the Fabletics brand. It is essentially saying that people like this brand and they want to do something to change the way that we will look at athletic clothing.

 

Fabletics is a company that has been around for a while, but the buzz is still growing because more physical stores are coming into existence. This is the work of Kate Hudson and it is something that her partners Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg are in agreement with. It appears that Kate Hudson is looking for a chance to reach an offline crowd. This is good planning because in the past people were only building their knowledge of Fabletics through the online website.

 

People were ordering clothes and signing up for VIP membership in order to get automated shipments. This is a good thing because it creates a strong sense of customer loyalty, but Kate Hudson realized one thing. She was aware of just how many of her customers she was neglecting by not giving them more options to try on clothes in stores.

 

Fabletics has over a dozen stores in place already, but this is a very small fraction when one considers the different territories that customers for Fabletics exist in. This is a company that has grown outside of the United States. There are customers for Fabletics in America, Canada and Australia. A dozen stores is definitely not enough for all of these different customers around the world. Kate Hudson was aware of that, and she wanted to do something about it. She wanted to increase her brand presents offline as well. That is why she has taken a great effort to build more stores. As a businesswoman Kate Hudson realizes that she has separated her online market, and now she has discovered a way to connect with customers that are new to the Fabletics brand. This is a great way to build a greater customer base and get more people talking about Fabletics clothing and VIP memberships.

Singing in One Voice: The Frontera Fund

Life is full of shocking surprises. While we at times anticipate for certain things to happen, others are stimulated by forces of nature. For instance, The Frontera Fund is a product of an unlikely circumstance that saw its founders; Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin get falsely apprehended by a devious Maricopa Sheriff by the name of Joe Arpaio. Using the Selective Enforcement Unit, the Maricopa County Sheriff sent his deputies on a witch hunt, that to arrest the two journalists. Just like in a combat movie kidnapping scene, the two individuals were whisked off by officers from the sheriff’s department and forcefully shoved into sub utility vehicles with tinted windows and Mexican license plates. Apparently, the directive came from Arpaio who heads the sheriff’s department.

 

Joe Arpaio was spooked off by Michael and Jim’s actions of publicly exposing him for allegations of abuse of public office. An outraged Joe initiated the arrests since the two journalists had at one point in time covered a story on him in the Phoenix New Times. In the story, Arpaio was said to be guilty of causing the deaths of inmates due to torture and mistreatment, racial prejudice, as well as illegally detaining individuals from the Latino community. In only a span of 24 hours, Michael and Jim got released from jail due to a public outcry, and after attending many court sessions after suing the sheriff and Maricopa County for abuse of power, they got rewarded with a $3.7 million settlement in 2013.

 

That is when the idea of creating The Frontera Fund got born. By using all the money from their settlement, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin created the organization to help individuals hailing from the Hispanic community fight social and political injustices. Also, they created the group so as to help deal with racial profiling particularly in the State of Arizona. Ever since its inception, The Frontera Fund has joined hands with other like-minded groups to fight for the rights of Mexicans who travel a thousand miles through hostile terrain in search for better opportunities for their families. The Frontera Fund has been silently providing finances to non-profit organizations whose primary purpose is to fight for the rights and freedoms of the Hispanic migrant population. Through the Frontera Fund, Jim and Michael have been able to create global awareness as to what transpires in Arizona on a daily basis.

 

Michael and Jim’s agenda has been extremely useful to the extent that it has given other watch dog groups the courage and endurance they need to fight oppression. Due to Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin’s heart for giving, they have offered a voice to the voiceless. So far, the Frontera Fund has caused a major stir in how refugees are handled, causing the authorities to pay particular attention as to how they treat migrants.

Betsy DeVos Gives An Insight Into The Reasons Behind Her Philanthropy

The name Betsy DeVos seems to have always been linked with education and philanthropy as the entire DeVos family has remained key backers of the education reform movement across the U.S. I was pleased to see Betsy DeVos was recently named as the U.S. Secretary of Education in a move that many people, like myself, feel validates the education reform movement Mrs. DeVos has been a key part of for over two decades; what is most amazing to me is the fact Betsy DeVos has been involved in the education reform movement since it was seen as an extremist group determined to provide greater levels of choice for the family’s of students across the nation. Visit Betsy’s profile page on Facebook.

As a member of the Prince industrial family, Betsy DeVos is often viewed as not being in touch with the needs of the everyday American family, I feel this is an incorrect view of Mrs. DeVos as the Education Secretary’s own mother was a public school teacher in the family’s native Michigan and instilled in her daughter the need to help families get the best possible education. In her early career, Betsy DeVos became an advocate for at risk students in Michigan before she set out to bring school choice and school voucher systems to the students of the U.S. as one of the most important figures in the education reform movement. After marrying the former AmWay President Dick DeVos, I was pleased to see Betsy remain in Michigan and found the inspiration to begin a number of political and activism groups fighting for the rights of students to have a say in their own education.

It was during the 1990s and early 21st century that Betsy DeVos made her biggest mark on the education reform movement when she headed two 501 charities devoted to reforming the education platform in the U.S. Alongside the work completed at a national level, Betsy DeVos has spent much of her time looking to have a positive impact on her local community in Grand Rapids, Michigan, where the DeVos family is still based; as the Chair of the Michigan Republican Party and campaigner with the Great Lakes Education Project that has been fighting for over a decade to bring school choice and charter schools to Michigan. The philanthropic work of Betsy DeVos is not solely limited to the education arena as I have read on many occasions of the donations and work completed by the entire DeVos family for the Kennedy Center for the Arts, ArtPrize, and the Kendall College of Art and Design.
