Malcolm Casselle, A Modern Day Entrepreneur
February 27, 2018
OPSkins leads the world when it comes to sales of in-game virtual assets. The creators of OPSkins recently launched WAX, which is a new blockchain platform they’re using to evolve the way virtual asset trading works. Malcolm Casselle is the president of WAX, and he believes it will be a big step towards giving the world of cryptocurrency a more mainstream appeal.
Being the president of WAX and the CIO of OPSkins, Malcolm Casselle is a first rate entrepreneur with a history rich in business. Having both a bachelor’s degree from MIT and a master’s degree from Stanford University, his knowledge of Computer Science is clearly shown on this business-growing veteran’s resume.
From his start in 1995 as a co-founder of NetNoir, it’s no understatement to say he’s been on a path of success from the very start. His founded website, which was based on Afrocentric culture, was the first outside company to be accepted into the AOL Greenhouse Program. In the following years from 1998-2002 Malcolm was a co-founder and Senior Vice president of Pacific Century CyberWorks, which went from startup to $38 billion market cap in a mere 18 months.
His list of mounting successes in the business world begin to lean more towards the gaming world as time goes on. In April 2012 he became CEO of Xfire, a global social network core for video game players. Not even a year later he also began serving as CEO of MediaPass, which is an online paywall solution that is used to create subscription-based revenues for digital content. That very same year, he co-founded yet another company called Timeline Labs where he once again served as CEO. When the company was acquired by SeaChange International in December 2014, he then went on to serve as Senior Vice President and General Manager of Digital Media for SeaChange International. His most recent business venture, which may very well change the trading of virtual assets as we know it, began in 2017, when he became the President of Worldwide Asset eXchange.

Why is Sheriff Arpaio so insensitive?
February 19, 2018
There is a plethora of reasons for why Sheriff Arpaio is insensitive and mean. First off, he really tried to crack down, big time, on illegal immigrants. It is insensitive to crack down on illegal immigrants because those people are just trying to build better lives for themselves.
They just happened to be born in the wrong place and live at the wrong time, so now they are fixing their lives by coming to America. Many times their countries of birth are infested with war, crime, gang violence and religious extremism. Some of these people are fleeing from friends or relatives who want to kill them.
Also, what Sheriff Arpaio has to take into account is the fact that there are some Mexicans who come to America to work and then eventually go back to Mexico. These types of illegal aliens do not intend to live in America because America is a foreign land to them, and they want to live with their families in their homeland.
For a long time, “illegal immigration” on the Mexican border wasn’t really something that was made a big deal about. Mexicans would come and go freely as they pleased. Usually, they would migrate to America to do agricultural jobs, and then go back to Mexico. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn
This has been a natural cycle for many years. Mexicans do this so that they can make a good salary for their families back home, where American money is worth more.
There are many other reasons—not relating to immigration, that show just how mean Sheriff Arpaio is. For example, he fed rotting bread and fruit to the people in his jails. Nobody wants to eat rotten food. Feeding people rotten food is a cruel and unusual punishment that can make people seriously ill. Eating rotten food should be taken very seriously.
Another reason for why he is insensitive is because of the fact that jail conditions deteriorated under his kingly rule. Mentally ill people were not given the care that they so desperately needed. People were kept in outdoor, low quality, “tent cities.” All of the inmates—even the guys—were forced to wear dainty, bright pink outfits.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey
If it wasn’t for journalists like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the crimes of Sheriff Arpaio would not have been made known all over the world. The topic of Sheriff Arpaio was a reoccurring topic in Jim and Michael’s publications.
He still is a great topic of interest for the two men. What has really inspired them to put even more attention on Arpaio is the fact that he wrongfully penalized them.
Jim and Michael generally take the lefty stance of being pro-immigrant, pro-open borders, anti-Trump, anti-white-supremacy and pro-minority. They, themselves, do not visually appear to be Latino, and their last names do not sound Latino.
When reading their biographies, one gets the impression that they are not immigrants, and that they were born and raised in the United States. That could be a wrong impression, but is pretty probable that those details are true about them.
