Democrat Conor Lamb Gets Backing From End Citizens United PAC

     The candidacy of a Democrat running for Congress in Pennsylvania’s 18th District just got a major boost from national-ticket political action committee — the same group that already helped a Democrat win a U.S. Senate Seat in Alabama.

End Citizens United has announced that it will back Conor Lamb in a March 13 special election against Republican state lawmaker Rick Saccone. The seat was recently vacated by Rep. Tim Murphy who resigned in disgrace after a scandalous extramarital affair was made public.

Democrats like their chances in the Pennsylvania 18th despite the fact that it’s been a solid seat for Republicans for decades, and that Hillary Clinton was trounced by Donald Trump here in the 2016 presidential race.

But indications are that the voters in this southwest corner of the state are increasingly fed up with Trump. Also, Rick Saccone is viewed as something of a long-time political hack and little more than a rubber stamp for Trump.

Lamb, on the other hand, is a fresh face with a stellar career of accomplishments despite being just 33 years old. He is a former U.S. Marine officer and served as an Assistant U.S. Attorney for Pennsylvania. In that job he scored an impressive list of legal victories, including striking blows against drug dealers involved in the opioid epidemic.

End Citizens United is keen for a Conor Lamb House victory because he supports the PAC’s goal of getting big money out of politics. End Citizens United was formed in 2015. The group is focused on overturning a disastrous 2010 Supreme Court decision – called the Citizens United ruling — that opened the floodgates for big corporations to donate billions to political campaigns.

End Citizens United is expecting to raise some $35 million ahead of the 2018 midterm elections. It donated about $600,000 to Democratic Senate candidate Doug Jones in his successful bid to defeat Republican Roy Moore in Alabama – a seat many thought could never be captured by a Democrat.

End Citizens United raises funds on a strictly grassroots basis, accepting no cash from big corporations or billionaires. The average contribution from hundreds of thousands of ordinary American voters has been about $14. Small donations from millions of working-class people is the way American elections are supposed to be won, say End Citizens United officials.

Flipping the Pennsylvania 18th District in March will be a key step in taking back the U.S. House from Republican control this November.

The Ancient Weapon Employed In The Middle Age Period- Trabuco

The Trabuco is a war machine that was used in battles during the middle age period. The war device was founded by the Chinese in the 400 BC where they used the sling mechanism to develop it. Its mechanism worked by hurling stones to the enemy, with an intention to cause massive destruction to the walls of the enemy. Further, the Chinese engineers operating the Trabuco had to have accurate calculations to hit the target otherwise it would backfire. Again, aside from using stones as projectiles, the armies would also fire missiles in the form of human skulls, animal carcasses, and infected corpses.

The Usage and Working Mechanism of the Trabuco

The Trabuco worked by converting potential energy into kinetic energy to launch projectiles. Also, the velocity of the load was directly proportional to the counterweight employed. However, some of the power used dissipated during the launch through gravity and friction. Further, the Trabuco war machines were constructed in different sizes where the larger were more efficient and caused more destruction. For instance, the large ones would hurl loads weighing up to 140 pounds while the distance would be to the extent of 800 meters away.

Moreover, the Trabuco machine underwent many transformations since its establishment. The first war machine was known as the balancing Trabuco while the modified one was known as the traction Trabuco. The balancing Trabuco required the use of human strength as its counterweight to launch missiles, a factor that made it very cumbersome in its operations. What’s more, some of the large Trabuco machines would require more than 250 people which were the main reason for its modification according to youtube.com. The traction Trabuco was designed with the use of counterweight load to launch missiles instead of people hence making it easier to operate.

The Europeans adopted the weapon in the 600 AD according to redetrabuco.com.br. It was widely used in battles with their enemies before the invention of modern weapons. Furthermore, the war device was also used during the warfare between the Christian and Muslims at the Mediterranean surroundings. The Trabuco was however deserted when the gunpowder was introduced.

Bob Reina and the Magic Email

Talk Fusion is a name that is quickly becoming popular on the internet around the world. It has not been around for very long, and actuality is sort of a marketing advertising firm. Created by Bob Reina, this company was developed in order to offer communication solutions to a quickly aging community of businessmen and women.

The interesting thing about Talk Fusion is not only will you be able to email your colleagues, but also have the opportunity to video chat with them within the same interface.

Will video chatting someone that you work with while emailing them doesn’t sound like a very good idea, there are other alternatives to using Talk Fusion away from the business world. This can be used as a personal communication device as well and can be used to have conversations with friends and family over long distances. You can still type and important or secretive message to someone in email form, and talk to them through video chat at the exact same time. This puts a face to the text you are writing and makes it much more familiar than just staring at a screen full of characters. Bob Reina has done an excellent idea developing this form of technology, and it is a breath of fresh air to something as archaic and seemingly unuseful as the common email address. Learn more:  https://www.youtube.com/user/TalkFusionOfficial

One of the deadliest and the most destructive natural disasters to hit the Philippines is Typhoon Haiyan, known in the country locally as Typhoon Yolanda. The terrifying winds and storm surge that the typhoon unleashed is nightmarish, and it destroyed thousands of settlements across the Visayas Group of Islands. George Secker was witnessing the onslaught on television when it happened in November 2013, and because of the apocalyptic destruction that he saw, George Secker decided to visit the Philippines and help those who have lost their homes.

After the initial ceremonies, he went back to the United States and focused on his businesses that aim to empower small-time entrepreneurs and to encourage them to enter the market.

Recently, George Secker went back to the Philippines for the turnover ceremony. He tagged with him Nonito Donaire, a famous Filipino boxer who promised that he would be going with George Secker when the construction of the houses ends. After landing in Manila, George Secker had to ride another plane that will be taking him to Iloilo Province where his village is located. Upon reaching the site of the village, he felt delighted and surprised. The local people thanked him for his assistance, and as George Secker turns over 100 keys for the houses that were built, he started thanking everyone who is involved with the project. After the ceremony, George Secker has to go back to the United States to oversee the operations of his business, called Learn to Trade.

The hard work and perseverance of Secker paid off as more than 200,000 people are now using the program that he created. George Secker also claimed that he will be donating more houses for the people and that he will be asking for sponsorship from the American public.
