Roberto Santiago Made Things Better for People of Brazil

The creation of the Manaira Mall was exactly what Brazil needed to ensure the people of the country were going to have the best experience possible. Roberto Santiago knew this when he created the mall. He tried to do different things to ensure the mall would be the best place possible for people to try to go shopping and different things. It is what has allowed him the chance to make their lives better. It has also given him the chance to make things better on his own. For Roberto Santiago to do this, he had to be sure the mall was the best that it could be. He also wanted people to know what they could get out of the things they were doing. When people visit Manaira Mall, they can shop, dine and even have the chance to experience entertainment like no other mall in the country.

 

Since Roberto Santiago created exclusive partnerships with different designers and clothing companies, he was able to make the shopping experience in the mall the best. With this experience, people would be able to try different things. No other locations in the area were able to have the same items as Roberto Santiago had with Manaira because he had created the exclusive partnerships. It is what gave him the chance to really set Manaira apart from other malls while he was working to improve the options each person had while they were at the mall.

 

Even though most malls have dining options, Roberto Santiago wanted Manaira to have the best options for his customers. He wanted there to be a lot of different restaurants. The way Roberto Santiago set Manaira up was so the mall would have options for anyone to choose from when they were dining out. It is what gave him the chance to grow the restaurant and help people realize what they were able to do. It also gave him the experiences that would make Manaira the best that it could be. For Roberto Santiago to do this, he had to ensure restaurants were going to offer all of the people who came to the mall the options they needed.

 

Since entertainment in a mall can be difficult for people to enjoy, Roberto Santiago wanted them to have something that no other mall had. He knew that movie theaters and arcades wouldn’t be the only thing Manaira needed so he chose to make things different for the mall. It was a way for him to enjoy different things so he could make the entertainment center. When people came to the mall, they could enjoy the convention center. Roberto Santiago even put it conveniently on the roof so it wouldn’t take up valuable shopping space.

Joe Arpaio’s arrest of Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin

October 18, 2007 Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin were forcibly removed from their Phoenix homes and arrested by Maricopa County deputies, and booked into two different Joe Arpaio’s jails.

Arpaio had heavily involved in the arrests of Lancey and Larkin. Phoenix New Times had reported on things that made Joe Arpaio angry. Some of these reports were about Financial mismanagement in the sheriff’s office, abuses of power, substandard health conditions in Arpaio’s jails, mistreatment and deaths of jail inmates, and much more.

Lacey and Larkin had covered a story for the Phoenix New Times that revealed an assault to the constitution. Allies of Arpaio’s at the Maricopa Attorney’s office issued grand jury subpoenas asking for details about the news papers writers, editors and readers. They even wanted personal browsing histories and IP addresses of their readers.

With help from a very loud national outcry both Lacey and Larkin were released less than 24 hours later and all charges dropped. The Ninth Circuit had made it clear that they were arrested without probable cause and that the subpoenas served on them had actually been invalid.

In 2013 Maricopa county paid a settlement to Lacey and Larkin for $3.7 million. That money went to the Frontera Fund, an initiative intended to benefit the Hispanic community that has received the brunt of racial animus and civil abuse in Arizona. Soon after receiving the money Lacey and Larkin quietly began handing out Frontera Fund money to worthy nonprofit advocates for Hispanic civil rights and causes.

 

Larkin and Lacey are Still Combating Joe Arpaio

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin are the former co-owners of The Phoenix New Times. They first met each other in college, where they created a campus news letter to combat the school’s conservative views towards antiwar protests. 40 years later, the two are still getting under the skin of conservatives such as former sheriff Joe Arpaio.

While at the New Times, Lacey and Larkin were spearheading the efforts to expose Arpaio for his countless crimes committed against the citizens of Arizona. When the paper discovered that Arpaio had been hiding assets, Arpaio went on a campaign that eventually led to the unlawful arrest of Lacey and Larkin.

The journalists in turn, sued the county and were awarded a 3.75 million dollar restitution.

Now that the Joe Arpaio controversy is behind them, Larkin and Lacey have created two new organizations: The Frontera Fund and Front Page Confidential.

The Frontera Fund is a charitable organization that provides funds and resources to other charities. The focus of the Fund’s efforts are the Hispanic community. Frontera Fund works with dozens of other organizations to provide assistance, support and information to the immigrant community in Arizona.

Since the settlement, the two have sold the Phoenix New Times and started a brand new paper. Their new paper, Front Page Confidential, creates content centered around educating the population on civil, human, and migrant rights. The paper reports on instances of oppression and civil rights violations. Larkin and Lacey want to make sure actions similar to those of Arpaio never happen again.
