Advocate Joseph Published in The Freeman on Globalism

Young Voices Advocate Joseph Diedrich was published in FEE about globalism in everyday life.

I live in a studio apartment, so my kitchen is my living room is my bedroom. The other day, I was staring out my sole window when something startled me. (And it wasn’t the subwoofer two floors up.)

It was my coffee. While sipping from my mug, I glanced at the bag of beans. It read, “Origin: Ethiopia.” Next, I read the text on the bottom of my laptop: “Designed by Apple in California. Assembled in China.” I looked down at my necktie: “Bruno Piatelli. Roma.”

Advocate Gannon Published in The Canal on Alternatives to Higher Education

With college students back in classes and student debt continuing to top out US$1 trillion nationwide, the market for college appears to be at its peak.

“Unions in general have an important function in society when it comes to representing the best interest of workers, but when that interest is against the best interest of business, it’s wasted,” he added.

Symbol of law and justice in the empty courtroom, law and justice concept.

Advocate Keith Published in Townhall on Patent Privateering

Advocate Keith Farrell was published in Townhall about the abusive practice of patent privateering.

A new type of business is earning a lot attention, though critics say they are perverting the market, abusing intellectual property laws, and hindering competition and innovation at cost to the consumer. Patent Assertion Entities (PAEs) — or, as they are commonly referred to, “patent trolls” — are companies that exist for the sole purpose of acquiring patents and then asserting them through litigation. Independent PAEs tend to acquire obscure patents with the aims of enforcing the patents infringement. More and more, however, PAEs are being empowered by large corporations, being given or sold valuable patents for the express purpose of attacking competition, and bogging it down with litigation.

Advocate Daniel Published in Watchdog on California Film Tax Credits

Advocate Daniel Takash was published in Watchdog on California’s misguided film tax credits.

Gov. Jerry Brown last month agreed to a deal that would increase California’s film tax credits to $330 million per year, up from its previous $100 million.

This attempt to save the Golden State’s “crown-jewel industry” is a story fit for Hollywood, unless other state legislatures offer subsidies to have the story filmed in their home state.

North-Korea

Editor Yeonmi Featured in Aljazeera on Escaping from North Korea

Advocate Yeonmi Park was featured in Aljazeera on her escape from North Korea.

Yeonmi Park was 13, when she escaped North Korea with her family after her father, a member of the ruling Workers’ Party, was sent to prison by the regime over charges of illegal business with the Chinese across the border.

Her world changed overnight as her family’s quick plummet down the North Korean social ranks didn’t just mean a life of shame and abandonment but also a life where getting a meal a day became a luxury.
