Mike Heiligenstein and the Ways he is Improving Austin County

Written by JoyousTrinity on June 8, 2017

The concerns about the road usage in State Highway 130 which is found in San Antonio are many. In fact, the road has been downgraded twice because the traffic numbers are small. However, Mike Heiligenstein who is the executive director of Mobility Authority says that most road users avoid this path due to congestion. At the same time, the footprints that are already there cannot get more lanes, and the neighboring cities are not willing to allow bigger footprint. Heiligenstein says that adding capacity to the State Highway 130 is not the solution, but the best approach is figuring out a way to make the road more multi-modal so that even if the travel behavior has been changes and capacity increased, the road will be able to accommodate the changes.


The other concern that is there is on the toll roads. In the recent years, these roads have experienced financial performance that is poor due to the weak economy and the high prices of gas. Thus, the question that everyone is asking is if there is a case to be made of these toll roads. When enquired about this Heiligenstein said that though toll roads help, they are not the solution and should be used with others trail ideas to ensure there is no congestion on the road.


Heiligenstein is the executive director of Mobile Authority since the year 2003. Before joining this from he was the City Council Member of Round Rock City. He also worked as a County Commissioner of Williamson. His primary focus when he was working was infrastructure like parkland acquisition, the development of Bushy Creek Regional Train, and Transportation. It is no wonder that he was the ideal candidate to work at Mobile Authority. In fact, he saw the business growing from s startup to a national leader to the operation of toll roads. He strives to offer services to the public by trying to make sure that the transportation is smooth at the same time focusing on the wellbeing of Austin Community.


The Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority is a company that focuses on preserving and enhancing the quality of life in Central Texas. The firm aims to achieve this by changing the landscape of the region and engaging with the communities that it serves. The company though under the government, it is independent. Its purpose of reducng congestions is to create transportation choices that will help to enhance economy vitality. By law, the body is allowed to implement an extensive range of transportation systems like transit services, airports, and roadways.

How the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund Was Created

Written by JoyousTrinity on June 4, 2017

There are many groups of attorneys out there that advocate for civil, human and migrant rights. They are groups that want to do some good to the world by supporting noble causes for people that don’t have the voice or the condition to have the necessary legal assistance that they need.

Migrants, for example, are always struggling with law enforcers requesting their documents and doing a bunch of question with preconception prejudice just because of their different culture and country of origin.

This happens all the time, even for migrants that are legally in the country. Judgment and censure are everywhere. Learn more about Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/relevant-links/

Attorneys that defend LGBT people are also included in the groups that fight for human rights. Many times, individuals find themselves target of a lot of verbal abuse and many times physical aggression because of their sexual orientation. Other times, attorneys make the crucial mistake of avoiding defending these communities because of the controversy that it can bring to their career, which is why there need to be lawyers that specifically defend them.

And so, the extensive list goes on. Some attorneys defend “guilty people,” in the language of lawyers, and most of the times they can research and support condemned victims that were actually innocent, and that can be a huge uplift for a lawyer’s career.

There is a lot of wrong injustice in the legal system that requires the dedication of professional and dedicated lawyers to help mitigate the abuse and restore justice where it is needed. Fighting for individuals who are right, even if they are up against powerful, multinational corporations, is important to build a unique name for the lawyer’s career.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, for example, are not far from a tough start to their career as a duo of lawyers who fight for migrants’ rights.

Michael and Jim are the co-founders of Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media have struggled a lot with censure and the lack of real justice when regarding the politically influential individuals versus those who don’t have as big of a voice.

The duo got arrested on an afternoon on October 18, 2007, by Sheriff Joe Arpaio of Maricopa County. They acquired a $3.75 million settlement that directly resulted in the team being arrested by the sheriff because of a misunderstanding and lack of evidence that supported Michael and Jim.

That settlement money would be dedicated to individuals that are facing issues with migration, and they have covered many migrant rights organizations throughout Arizona. Read more: Jim Larkin | Twitter and Jim Larkin | Huffington Post

The team is now again in the active and are supporting any attorneys that want to defend individuals facing censure for being a migrant or coming from a different culture, and they are continuously funding and supporting organizations and groups that fight for civil, human, and migrant rights.

Freedom of speech is a right of every American citizen, but, sometimes, there needs to exist an extra push from those who have a voice in the constitutional court.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was created to invest in these foundations, and the settlement money has already been used to support dozens of people that were facing legal issues.

Litigation Changes For Attorney Karl Heideck And Corporations Seeking Financial Safeguards

Written by JoyousTrinity on May 17, 2017

Attorney Karl HeideckThere will be sweeping changes that make an overwhelming difference within litigation practices during 2017. Companies relying on their current financial infrastructure will face unprecedented risks with litigation. They will need to assess those risks more specific to their bottom line and market exposure.

In addition, measures governing accurate data and the reporting of that data, within a lawsuit, will be held to a much-higher scrutiny in 2017. The litigation process will now be vulnerable, for assuring accuracy processes are in place before any lawsuit proceeds. Those companies that are capable of maintaining accurate data, as well as securing their financial infrastructure can mitigate risks.

As an experienced and accomplished Attorney in the Greater Philadelphia region, Karl Heideck has counseled many of his corporate clients on this very matter. Heideck has over a decade of experience advising businesses and corporations on the financial risks of lengthy litigation’s.

Karl Heideck has a specialty in risk management, and compliance laws. An addition, he advises on legal writing and employment law. Karl Heideck believes that companies seeking to initiate small, or large claims, will need to adhere to the changes eventually, or they face huge uncertainty, within their financial portfolio and investments.

For this reason, over the past six years, companies have needed to lessen their risks by assembling litigation financing. This growing process limits the company’s vulnerability to the potential exposure of lawsuits. Companies will continue to need to assess financial risk; however, litigation financing has already proven to be a valuable solution.

Traveling Through Nepal

Backpacking Nepal


An undisputed truth of travel is that traveling through Asia is inexpensive and packed full of wonders both natural and spiritual. If your next destination is in Asia look to Wild Ark to aid with your trek through the most beautiful landscapes and furthering your conservationist education.

Nepal is a destination worthy of independent or group travel, and can be easily navigated on foot by backpacking along a path which would lead you and your travel companions past some of the most unique sights Asia has to offer.

Early spring is the best time for travel to Nepal because the summer is characterized by monsoons and downpour as Nepal’s wet season. Nepal is home to extraordinary biodiversity; the Himalayan and Mahabharat mountain ranges, the Churia hills, the Central valleys crisscrossed with rivers and farmland, and the southern Terai plains. Intermixed within these landscapes are Nepalese jungles dense with rain forest and unique wildlife.

The Nepalese government has responded to the growth in their tourism industry with increased efforts to create sustainable tourism opportunities for travelers, national reserves and parks, and conservations. Efforts made to this end are very much in line with the attitude Wild Ark adopts about all its travel destinations.

Wild Ark aims to help educate travelers who are already interested in spending time in nature how they can be a part of the effort to save the most valuable resources we have available to us around the world. Inspiring travelers to act with conservation and preservation efforts is the major motivating factor of providing travel guides and experiences to global backpackers.

Nepal can be several destinations in one with its radically different ecosystems and hiking opportunities. There are locations and options for everyone, including some of the most beautiful and nature-loving religious sites in the world. Many of the Buddhist temples in Nepal embrace and cooperate with the habitat in which they are built, further inspiring travelers to embrace this practice of co-existence in their own lives.

Securus Technologies Is Cheered On By The Media

Written by JoyousTrinity on April 21, 2017

A media article was recently circulated around the online world. This article was filled with dozens of positive reviews of Securus Technologies. Many observers of online media content are very surprised at this. The reason is because how much media reporters criticize organizations, especially those tied to the government. This article is shedding a lot of light on Securus Technologies and all the good things they are doing for communities throughout the United States.


It was recently discovered that there are articles written daily regarding Securus Technologies. These articles are written by government officials and others by inmates themselves. All these articles are positive in nature. There has never been a piece of writing distributed that speaks negatively regarding Securus Technologies. More and more people are beginning to recognize how Securus Technologies is transforming the lives of inmates, and this is causing the media to be drawn to Securus. Securus Technologies is shocked. They remember when people did not even know their name and could not even pronounce it. Now Securus Technologies is becoming a regular topic within mainstream online news.


Other countries are starting to acknowledge Securus Technologies, too. It has been reported that several different countries recently displayed news stories regarding Securus Technologies. These news stories depicted how Securus Technologies is taking inmate communication to the next level. These countries hope their prison systems can take some lessons from Securus Technologies.


After hearing about other countries acknowledging their services, Securus Technologies is considering going global with their products and services. They believe this will be their biggest challenge. This is because they will have to learn inmate laws in other countries, and they will have to make sure prisons in other countries have electricity in the first place. Securus believes this is a dream that will come true in time.
