Corporate compliance refers to the manner in which companies have internal policies as well as procedures made to detect violations of different applicable law, regulations and ethical standards through employees and agents. Bruno Fagali has been on the forefront of helping business to adapt to different compliance policies. According to Brazilians, he is one of the most promising lawyers in the country. His dedication to make his country a business hub is unwavering. In most of articles, Fagali highlights the need for companies to obey the law especially in business matters.
As globalization increases, it has become increasingly crucial for nations to better their reputation in order to be stable, safe as well as reliable. This will in turn increase their capability to attract investors from foreign countries while increasing the value of exports. Nevertheless, all these parties have to meet stringent standards imposed by the European as well as North American markets.
Bruno Fagali is of the opinion that regulations in his country are meeting the European benchmarks. However, the compliance dockets implemented by most marketing companies in Brazil are not easy to maintain. Therefore, it is rather easier to come up with ethical bylaws and ensure that companies adapt to the policies. That is also where Bruno Fagali comes in as an advisor.

Fighting for LGBT Rights with the Phenomenal Gareth Henry
Gareth Henry is the former leader of Jamaica’s gay and lesbian outfit Jamaica Forum for Lesbians, All Sexuals and Gays or simply J-Flag. In 2008, Gareth made international headlines after an unfortunate incidence where the Jamaican police brutally beat him in front of a crowd. His only crime was supporting and advocating for the rights of the gay and lesbian community in this island nation. After this violent act, Gareth fled to Canada to protect his life and perhaps find a more accommodating venue to advocate for J-Flag back home.
Upon landing in Canada, Gareth Henry sought legal recourse for the inhumane actions he and members of J-Flag battle with everyday. To this end, he presented his case to the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights and cited details such as the brutal killing of thirteen J-Flag members. More so, the intolerant attitudes towards gays and lesbians in Jamaica claimed the life of Brian Williamson (in 2004) who was the founding leader of J-Flagg.
Before seeking asylum in Canada, Gareth Henry had become a target for law enforcement who made him anxious about his safety. He approached the justice system and government officials, but nobody came to his rescue. The straw that broke the camel’s back was the constant threatening of HIV/AIDs men whom he was offering housing after their families turned their backs from them. Gareth recalls one harrowing incidence when a policeman stopped him in traffic and declared that they knew of his whereabouts and were planning to kill him. Such brazen threats by the people who are supposed to keep citizens safe made him utterly nervous.
Homophobia is a scourge in Jamaica and in another seventy-six countries that criminalize any gay and lesbian acts. Now a refugee residing in Toronto, Gareth says that as long as violence against gays remains normalized in Jamaica, victims will continue to suffer in silence. He now runs Toronto People With AIDS Foundation and volunteers with Rainbow Railroad, a nonprofit that helps LGBT people facing persecution to relocate. Gareth Henry has a big heart and will keep fighting until the LGBT community the world over is free and has equal rights as everyone else.

The NGP VAN brand has become ever more closely linked to the use of technology in canvassing for Democrats and left-leaning independents in the U.S. Campaigning in U.S. elections had largely stalled over the course of the 20th-century with door-to-door canvassing playing a prominent role in campaigns at all levels. The NGP VAN brand came to the fore in 2008, when President Barrack Obama was looking to change the way political campaigns were fought in the U.S. and technology became a key to victory.
In every election since 2008, Democrats have turned to NGP VAN to streamline the campaigning process with less data entry involved for a campaign leader. Campaign leaders in each region have been forced to input huge amounts of data to create canvassing lists for their volunteers, this is one of the most difficult parts of an election campaign. Technology is being used with the simple functions of the MiniVAN app downloadable to mobile devices operating iOS and Android systems; the app provides real-time information with maps for each volunteer created as data is loaded.
The use of data has become a major part of the campaigning process for Democrats and Republicans alike which means NGP VAN is being called upon by candidates from all areas of the U.S. In the past, candidates using the technology of NPG VAN have included Presidential candidates such as Barrack Obama, Hillary Clinton, and Bernie Sanders. A script for use by each canvasser can be written by the campaign heads who then use this to create a standard for all those volunteering with their candidate.
Looking to the future is part of the work of any technology-based brand and NPG VAN is no different. One of the main areas of growth for the group is its improving links with the LGBTQ community across the U.S. and its backing of the International Day Without A Woman movement. In 2017, the International Day Without A Woman program saw NGP VAN’s female employees given the opportunity to work with charitable groups instead of attending work as usual. The progressive roots of this resistance-based technology group are on show at all times through its app development and work with Washington D.C.’s charities.
