The Latest Addition to the Media Empire of Lacey and Larkin of Frontera Fund

Rising Star is the latest news outlet founded by journalists Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin. The two business partners launched the website several months ago, adding it to the existing Village Voice media, Phoenix New Ties, and Frontpage Confidential.

Michael Lacey and Jim Karkin had stepped away from journalism for some time in order to direct their focus and efforts toward the Lacey and Laroin Frontera Fund. The organization is the embodiment of what Lacey and Larkin have bee striving for throughout their careers and so it has become one of the most significant organizations of its kind in the state of Arizona.

The Frontera Fund was created using the settlement money front the court case Melendres v. Arpaio from about a decade ago. That was a challenging battle for everyone involved, the pushing and pulling lasted a good several years before Joe Arpaio lost the fight and was on his way to a long sentence in prison. What saved him for repenting for his numerous crimes, was Donald Trump coming to the rescue with his presidential pardon issued a week before the judge was supposed to sentence Joe Arpaio to prison.

The former sheriff of the Maricopa County than tried to regain his previous position but his candidacy was neglected, and he retreated into his home and has not been in the public eye since. Media has also not been providing any updates on the man but has instead focused on Frontera Fund and the significant work it does.

The organization helps foundations and other groups to fulfill their duties and provide help in maintaining the First Amendment right of minority groups, proving the medical help, legal representation, education, and so on. Frontera Fund was created to help pick up the pieces of the destruction brought by Joe Arpaio.

Dr. Villanueva Brings The Dental Community Together

Dr. Chris Steven Villanueva has the dental background as a corporate dentist and a solo practitioner. Therefore, he knew what was required to take care of his patients and to run the administrative side of his practice. The challenges that he faced in double duty responsibilities increased his knowledge in how much easier it would be if the administrative roles in dental practices were omitted. He also thought about the new dental graduates who would be faced with the same solo and corporate dental practice offerings that he came from and what their challenges would be. Due to his background, Dr. Villanueva learned how to bring the necessary resources and support needed in the busy industry of dental practices.

As a result of these business challenges, Dr. Villanueva created the Texas based MB2 Dental Solutions company. The MB2 Dental Solutions company is designed with a team of administrative professionals who are helping dental practices with staffing, payroll, legal, marketing, accounting, and human resources undertakings. MB2 is designed to be a full-service dental administrative firm which is owned by dentists to help dentists concentrate on their best patient practices. As MB2’s CEO and founder, Dr. Villanueva has grown this dental solution firm exponentially with the aid of innovative service technology and top professional staff members who respond quickly to their clients’ needs. Additionally, MB2 Dental Solutions has a network of dentists who are experts in various specialties and who share their expertise with each other.

This business design enables dentists to provide better services to their patients and it creates a great dental community that not only helps each other but also creates loyalty. Dr. Villanueva, for security purposes, keeps all MB2 Dental Solution dental practices autonomous. MB2 Dental Solution has over 70 dental practices in six states, with the expectation to continue its growth. Dr. Chris Villanueva spent much of his life in South America and Asia, even though he was born in Ohio. After graduation, Dr. Villanueva worked in a private dental practice. He worked for ten years as an associate dentist, a dental trainer, and he worked for a physician focused practice system before he formed MB2 Dental Solutions. He continues to enjoy mentoring and training dental students and assisting them in their future plans. Dr. Villanueva is married with children, residing in Northern Texas.

Fabletics Gets to Know Their Customers

Fabletics has not gone with the usual strategies when it comes to growing its brand. Instead of using the more common “pop up” method of expanding its company, Fabletics has chosen to get to know their customer base and to find out more about the culture of those that they are marketing their products to. This has resulted in about 30 to 50 percent of their customers that shop their stores being members already. Another 25 percent normally ends up signing up for their membership as they shop in-store. It doesn’t matter whether their customers shop in-store or online either because all of their purchases count towards their shopping basket.


The sales of many companies are affected in a negative way by the fact that their customers shop around and buy products at a lower price elsewhere but since Fabletics already offers affordable prices on their clothing and they offer one-of-a-kind options, their customers shop with them. This keeps sales within Fabletics, and the customer gets the best deal without the hassle of shopping around in order to get the very best deal.


Kate Hudson loves her company and the brand that it stands for. She is very active and even wears her own collection. Kate Hudson is also very involved in her company and she watches for what is popular and what is not. Fabletics has their new members take a quiz known as the Lifestyle Quiz. The Lifestyle Quiz helps the company to get to know exactly what their customers want and need and the customer gets the best and most personalized service possible.


Fabletics has changed the perception that a good quality item has to be expensive. it doesn’t. With Fabletics you can get great clothes that are in-style and that are made of high-quality materials and that are manufactured to last. Fabletics offers trendy athleisure wear that everyone can afford as well and personalized and convenient service. Fabletics is offering something that other similar brands just can’t match.


Fabletics is expanding by the day, and they plan to open more stores that their customers can shop. They have even partnered with celebrities like Demi Lovato, and they now have 1.2 million members. Fabletics had a growth spurt of 644 percent in just the last year and they plan on gaining even more members as they expand their physical stores and continue to offer great athleisure wear.

The Best Tips for Successful Wainscoting Installation at Your Home

When you install wainscoting panels, what you are trying to achieve is add an architectural interest and create the perfect visual impressions in the room. And that’s only part of our goals. We also want to protect the walls, make a room look larger, or bring the ceiling up. So far so good!  

What we don’t want is to see our new shaker cracking, trip over the baseboard, or give the wrong impression. And just like any other home improvement, wainscoting the walls needs good planning from the very start. You need to make a detailed layout, think of what your intentions are and what you want to install in terms of trims, check out what is available out there, and take a look at our tips before wainscoting installation. 

6 tips before you install wainscoting panels 

·         Choose durable wainscoting materials 

A classic wainscoting panel will be made of wood. But today you can get them in PVC and MDF too. What’s important is to consider their strength and resistance to moisture, especially if you want to install the panels in wet environments, like your bathroom or basement. The good news is that you can find water resistant materials today for such rooms. A good tip prior to installing the wall panel is to keep it in the room where it will be installed to adapt in the environment. 

·         Focus on the wainscoting panel’s height 

Choose a tall wall panel wainscoting for a low ceiling room and the space will be claustrophobic. One of the most vital phases, when you are still planning wainscoting installation, is to take measures, write down dimensions, and consider whether you want to bring the ceiling up or down. 

·         Use the colored palette to give the right impression 

Think of the colors you want to paint both the shaker wainscoting and the wall above it before you even buy the boards. It’s best to paint the panels before you install them. As for the color, you can never go wrong with white. But you can play with all shades of the palette. Remember that dark colors will make the room a tad smaller and bring the ceiling down. Always consider how much natural light comes in the room and the color of the floor too. A white might not be as white as you want it depending on natural light and floor color (it will reflect on the wall). 

·         There are wainscot designs for any room & style 

A beadboard wainscoting is the perfect choice for the bathroom. But it will give a cottage-style to your dining room or living room. There is a reason why there are so many wainscoting styles to choose from. Consider which one will match the architectural style of each room in the house. You don’t have to use the same panel for each and every room. 

·         Wainscoting & molding go hand in hand 

Whichever wainscoting design you select, you will probably match it with ceiling molding. The latter should match the baseboard and cap rail in terms of thickness and style. It takes great attention though to install wainscoting along with casing. The wall panel shouldn’t cover the door casing or it will cancel its presence since it will cut it in half. And there is one more thing to consider: thickness. If there is already a door or window casing in the room, consider its thickness and buy wainscoting accordingly or it will stick out (if it’s thicker). This lack of balance will compromise the aesthetic result and might create convenience problems too. And this last observation lead us straight to our last tip.

·         Watch your step with the baseboard 

When you take measurements before installing a new beadboard in the bathroom or kitchen, consider your moves too. Take the baseboard for example. If it protrudes enough from the wall, you might have a hard time standing in front of your vanity cabinet or kitchen island. These are small details of course, but don’t forget that the devil hides in little things. You don’t want to go through the trouble and expense of wainscoting installation only to discover that your feet bump in the baseboard!

So, the secret to ensuring the proper installation of the new shaker or flat panel wainscoting is to plan well from the start and take into account all the small details – from temperature fluctuations to room height and personal convenience. And don’t forget that installing wainscoting panels is not an easy job. Always take it to a pro.

Robert Johnson Assists Securus Technologies to Get Rid of Contraband Cellphones

Robert Johnson is a popular personality in the United States. Robert has been making headlines in the recent times, telling people his great story. The businessman hopes that telling this story to everyone will motivate the authorities to keep all phones from the inmates who are serving their sentences in different prisons. According to Robert, the prison inmates started some bad behaviors several years ago, but he is going to be the one to end the story. Robert Johnsons says that the inmates who have access to mobile phones while in the prisons pose a great danger to the communities who are living in the outside world.

Johnson is one of the Delray Beach natives who were serving at institutions known as Lee Correctional Institution that is found in South Carolina. The professional has been serving in this industry for almost two decades, and his greatest role was to get rid of contraband in the prisons. When serving in this department, the businessman was great in all his duties, and this brought him a lot of trouble. In the year 2010, the businessman was shot when he was just in his home.

According to Johnson, just two weeks before the shooting incidence happened, he had managed to intercept a special and big package. The gang in prison says that the package had a value of at least fifty thousand dollars. On the morning of the incidence, the businessman woke up very early to go to his place of work, just as usual. At around 5.30am, Johnson heard a boom in his front door, and this made him realize that things were not in order.

The intruder who entered into the house shot the businessman in the stomach six times and the chest. The doctors in the hospital asked his wife to be prepared because the situation was horrible. However, God helped him, and he survived the incidence.

Johnson says that the inmates who wanted to kill him communicated using a contraband cell so that he could be shot. His journey to recovery has been a challenging task. The businessman has had to undergo 23 surgeries in different medical facilities, not forgetting the pain he had to go through daily. However, the businessman has a great mission in his life; to prevent more crimes from the prison due to inmates who have access to mobile phones.

Johnson has been working with a private company called Securus Technologies so that he could ensure that contraband cellphones dont exist in the prions. Securus Technologies has been in this department for a long time now, and they have made this vision a great success.
