Justice is what Lacey and Larkin are After

February 11, 2018 • fitfam

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is the evilest man I have ever read about that calls himself an American. I am glad that Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have made it their life’s mission to oppose this evil man and expose the various crimes that he has been committing on a daily basis.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin fight with Sheriff Joe Arpaio by revealing his crimes through their media publications owned by the Village Voice Media. They own 17 publications that span coast-to-coast including the New York City and Phoenix News Times.

Sheriff Joe Arpaio is known throughout the nation as America’s Toughest Sheriff. However, Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin show that he is perhaps America’s most crime-ridden Sheriff. He routinely humiliates inmates in his jail system by forcing them to where girls undies and striped jumpsuits.

This makes them a target for rape within the prisons. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also showed how his jails failed health inspections on an annual basis and that he did nothing to improve the conditions. The reason his jails fail health inspections is because they spread fecal matter in the jail cells to humiliate prisoners and serve them moldy meat and rancid fruit.

Michael and Jim also reported an article through the Phoenix News Times detailing how Sheriff Joe Arpaio created his own personal Army by deputizing citizens and private investigators who are willing to do his bidding. He asked them to round up and bring in any Hispanic or Latino they thought may be here illegally. The problem was that these Sheriff posses had no legal training and did not know how to do a proper arrest, which led to many American citizens rights being violated.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also wrote a detailed report concerning the prison which Sheriff Joe Arpaio calls his concentration camp. They showed how inmates were routinely beaten during times that they were reportedly inside their jail cells. Of course, cameras catch security guards removing them from their jail cells for no reason only to beat them by alleging that they were not cooperative.

They also showed how in his concentration camp women would go into labor and would be denied the right to see a physician. In fact, they were times these mothers were chained to their beds and were forced to deliver their babies without medical attention.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin also brought to America’s attention the various wrongful deaths that were being conducted by order of Sheriff Joe Arpaio. There are people who died from medical conditions because they were denied their medications. There were inmates who were targeted to be killed by security guards during riots in the jail.

There were also Hispanics who died from suffocation because guards placed cloths over their mouths and chained them to the walls. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin hope for justice but do not believe they will receive any as President Donald Trump pardoned this wicked and evil man.

How Fabletics Can Change A Woman’s World

January 3, 2018 • fitfam

Women have a lot more leeway when it comes to looks and fashion. Therefore, it is expected for them to have fun with their clothing choices and put together interesting outfits. Given that women are expected to have a better sense of what works in fashion, they are going to be given more variety in clothing and accessories. However, women did not always have the variety they are known for in fashion. There was one section that was very monotonous in a discouraging way. This is the active wear section. The items offered in active wear offered very little for women to find a way to be unique in their outfits.


While many would just accept it as the way things are, there is one person that has decided that there is room for style and variety in active wear. Her name is Kate Hudson. She is very famous not only for her acting but her style as well. She is not only passionate about her own wardrobe, but she is also willing to inspire other women to find and develop their own sense of style and fashion. One thing she wants is for women to feel good about themselves.


Women pride themselves on their fashion choices and their fitness. Therefore, Fabletics was an obvious move for Kate Hudson. Kate has taken the concepts of fitness and fashion and mixed them together in a way that is very inspiring and elegant. Women no longer have to feel ashamed about wanting something that is a little more flattering for them when they are working out. Workout clothes can be fun as well.


Kate Hudson knows that it is fun to have a healthy body. Therefore, she wants people to have fun building their body. When they wear boring outfits, they are more likely to be discouraged. Unique and creative outfits can be one of the best ways for women to be more engaged in their workout. With Fabletics, Kate Hudson has brought a certain style to the public eye. This style is known as athleisure. These clothes are not just for physical activities but other occasions.

November 27, 2017 • fitfam

Eli Gershkovitch then got a location, a 100-year-old building having a steam heat system. This system is what he used to start his innovative steam powered craftbeer brewing, he aptly named his brewery Steamworks, producing only 6 craft beers in its year one of operations. Over the years, Eli Gershkovitch has seen his company grow and take art in craft beer awards and has opened a full scale brewery, and selling craft beer in 14 states in America and several Canadian provinces.

Spruce beer

E.g. Garrison Brewery found in Halifax. The main spruce beer provider is Paul Patates, who still uses an 1896 recipe to brew it.

Ice Beer

Based on the Eisbock beer style from Germany, it is formed by lowering the beer temperature until they form ice crystals which are then filtered out, leaving a concoction with higher alcohol to water volume ratio, this process is called freeze distillation. Common spruce beer brands in Canada include Bush ice and Labatt Ice beers (

Craft beer

In 2015, craft beer had 10% market share of the Canadian beer market and its growth can be attested to the increase in local brewers up from 88 craft brewers in 2006, in 2015, the number was at 520 and growing. Craft beer is mostly sold in cans because cans are light and enable brewers to transport a lot of beer in one trip, cans are also highly resistant to light and also oxygen, the two factors that lower the beers shelf life thus ensuring the beer has a longer shelf life. All these factors make the can favorable since it has an overall reducing effect on packaging and the shipping costs.
