End Citizens United announced the records of the funding that they collected over the first quarter of the year. The group intends to raise thirty-five million dollars for the midterm elections for Congress next year. End Citizens United raised $25 million during last year’s election. This is the first election cycle that they were involved. Tiffany Muller is the president and executive director of ECU. She formerly served as the deputy political director of the Senate Democrats’ campaign. She said that half of the hundred thousand people who contributed to the PAC were giving for the first time. Muller mentioned that the average contribution that they had received over the first three months was twelve dollars.
The leaders of ECU say that the goal of the group is to facilitate the election of reform champions to Congress. The donors of the PAC are people who feel that their opinions are disregarded because those who have a lot of money have the biggest say. Muller pointed out that many Democrats were not pleased with Trump’s appointment as president. They considered giving the PAC a way of fighting back. End Citizens United has been asking its donors to support the congressional campaign of Jon Ossof. Ossof is thirty years old. He is vying for the Georgia seat. The PAC has hinted that it will support Jon Tester and Sherrod Brown who are contesting for the Montana and Ohio seats respectively.
Republicans who voted to take away Medicaid were rewarded with money from a special interest group. The congressmen voted for a repeal bill that could cause millions of people to lose their healthcare coverage. It will allow insurance companies to charge people over the age of 50 more because of an age tax for seniors. People with conditions such as asthma, pregnancy, and cancer will be at risk because the bill removes some protections from the law.
The group is known as the American Action Network. It declined to disclose the source of its funding. It committed $2 million towards putting out advertising campaigns for the 21 Republican congressmen who voted for the bill. The group repaid the politicians with advertising funding that would deceive their constituents according to a statement by Tiffany Muller. She said that the House Republicans were participating in a scheme to deny hardworking Americans healthcare coverage.
The members of Congress who were part of the deal include Rodney Davis, Erik Paulsen, Paul Ryan, Greg Walden, and Darell Issa. The funding came at an opportune time since the members of Congress were preparing to go for vacation. Muller said that ECU would fight to shed light on shady activities such as this one.
Julia Jackson of Jackson Family Wines is the middle daughter of Barbara Banke and Jess Jackson. She was born in 1988 in San Francisco and remembers working in the family vineyards since she was a small child.
As a girl, Julia seemed to really hit it off with the daughter of a winemaker employed by the Jacksons. Julia was invited to spend a summer in Bordeaux, where she developed a lifelong passion for all things French. Her intensive study of the French language led Julia to pursue teaching French to children as part of her college studies.
Julia is the founder of the Cambria Seeds of Empowerment. The non-profit organization awards $100,000 annually to non-profit organizations that embody the qualities of community, equality, and spirit. Specifically, Julia seeks to empower “warrior women” who have overcome hardships to become leaders and inspire others.
In her own life, Julia Jackson had to overcome the male-dominated nature of the wine industry, which she says is present even in California. She learned that while the industry sometimes discourages female executives from being true to themselves, Julia had to learn to stand her ground.
Julia says she learned from her father Jess’s emotional intelligence, which she says has been one of the keys to his more than 30 years of success in the wine business. She describes her father as the “dreamer” of the family and her mother as the “genius” with the head for business.
Jess Jackson founded Jackson Family Wines (not be confused with Kendall-Jackson wines) in 1982. Barbara Banke has served as the company’s Chairman and Proprietor for more than 25 years. Jess and Barbara’s three children Kate, Julia, and Christopher all serve in positions within the company, as do Jess’s daughters Jennifer and Laura. Jennifer’s husband, Don Hartford, serves as the company’s CEO. It truly is a family-run business.

When we talk about investment in Brazil, there is a lot to be discussed in regards to how Brazilians are investing their money in having a higher profit later. Ignorance and lack of information are two main problems when considering the investment sector in the country. We’ll be analyzing why that’s true, covering the story of one of the most successful financial experts of Brazil, as well as covering what would be the better options to achieve a higher percentage of profit while maintaining high security.
First, we have to analyze where Brazilians get investment information from, in the first place. And the majority will answer that they get from their bank agencies and the professionals that give financial assistance and bits of advice.
Not trying to misjudge the profession of these advisors, but they are paid to try to sell the investments that their bank agencies offer. In this case, the type of investment that most financial experts tell Brazilians to use is their savings account, which has around 0,6 return on profit per month.
What most Brazilians do not know is that this is the lowest type of steady investment possible. They could be achieving even 18% additional profit in a year without harming their security and confidence that the money is well stored.
Cassio Audi knows these facts pretty well. Having worked as Chief Financial Officer for Brookfield Brasil Real Estate Partners at the beginning of his career, he has tons of experience with financial management, investment, and solutions to the fiscal problems that many Brazilians are facing because of lack of options.
Cassio Audi studied at PUC and Later at the University of São Paulo, also in the big metropolitan city, where he got his MBA. Both formations are centered in business administration.
There is a lot of misconceptions regarding possible investments, and Brazilians tend to prioritize savings accounts just because of their “practicality.” About 61% of these communities still use this method, while some national treasures, for example, have about 13-14% additional return.
