The Importance of World Intellectual Property Day w/ Kamil Idris

Eight years ago, on April 26th, 2010, World Intellectual Property Day was first launched. Since then, the global celebration has been growing in popularity, with an ever increasing list of governments and independent organizations celebrating along with the World Intellectual Property Organization, or WIPO. World Intellectual Property Day is a celebration of, you guessed, intellectual property. That is, it celebrates patents, copyrights, and trademarks worldwide, as well as inspiring would be inventors.
Kamil Idris recently released a message via ie-forum.com on the upcoming celebrations and whay this celebration is important. Kamil Idris was a part of WIPO for the better part of twenty years, as well as being the director for over a decade. The director’s job is overseeing WIPO’s mission: to safeguard and promote one of humanity’s most precious resources: our ingenuity. Also, Idris was an independent candidate for the Sudanese president, the nation that is his birthplace.
In his report, Idris outlines the importance of intellectual property on a global scale. Without the presence of laws protecting intellectual property, new technologies and methods developed to combat global issues would never have become reality. What is the point of inventing something new and exciting if some big business can simply steal it from you? These are what these rights protect. IDris gives the example of global sports events. Without intellectual property rights, the broadcasting capabilities for these events would never be possible, and these sports events would never unite the world for that briefest of times.
Kamil Idris stresses the importance of human ingenuity. Creativity drives humanity from the creation of fire, to jet propulsion. From the first wheel, to the first airplane, great technological advancements have come from people with an idea. Johannes Gutenberg had the idea for mass production of books, and invented the printing press, one the single most defining moments of western civilization. WIPO promotes World Intellectual Property Day to bring notice to artists and inventors, whether they are famous or not.
World Intellectual Property Day, created by Kamil Idris, is not only a celebration of the ingenuity and creativity that fuel human advance, but also the right that protect these ideas, allowing them to be focused on driving economies and society as a whole.

Lacey and Larkin Continue Heroic Fight Against Arpaio

When the opportunity to invalidate Sheriff Joe Arpaio’s pardon came across Judge Susan Bolton’s desk, very few were expecting her to do the unthinkable and actually invalidate — sadly, she didn’t and Arpaio walked free. The President of the United States, for reasons unbeknownst to many, went out of his way to free a man who has gone on record comparing his “Tent City” of inmates housed outdoors in the Arizona heat to a concentration camp. Read more: Michael Lacey | LinkedIn and Michael Lacey | Twitter

Two gentleman who know the relentless pettiness of Arpaio better than most are Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey who were major contributors of The Phoenix New Times, a newspaper not afraid to call Arpaio on his destructive (and lawless) behavior, and thus were arrested by the Sheriff for doing their job as journalists.

This sort of mockery of justice was considered a step too far, even by Arpaio’s hilariously low standards. Though Larkin and Lacey luckily never faced serious jail time it was still another piece of proof that Arpaio would spare nothing in order to cling to his power.

Sadly, the arrest of the two media men was merely the icing on the cake of what was actually years of harassment and petty behavior. In addition to wasting taxpayers resources in order to arrest Larkin and Lacey, Arpaio actually banned Phoenix New Times reporters from his press conference in order to duck their questions.

Lacey and Larkin’s impressive careers deserve recognition for so much more than just their arrest at the hands of the lawless Sheriff. Indeed, they have built a considerable media network (Village Voice Media) that at its zenith reached over nine million print subscribers and an additional 56 million in online hits.

Today, Lacey and Larkin are still on the proverbial front lines in the fight against Joe Arpaio — launching the Frontera Fund as a sort of catch-all that seeks to bring the horrors of Arpaio’s reign into the limelight. Using affiliations with powerful groups such as the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) and Promise Arizona, the Frontera fund has been able to fight back against anti-immigrant sentiments pushed by conservative voices in Arizona and beyond.

One of their most poignant campaigns has been the fight for DREAMers in which they have lent their voices in support for the children who have lived their entire lives in America and so desperately want to be recognized as citizens. The Frontera Fund represents the latest in a series of media ventures by the pair, and as an exciting outlet of their proven success.

Lacey and Larkin have been a duo since their time at Arizona State University where they dropped out in order to provide an honest, progressive voice in the Phoenix area where they felt the conservative news outlets were presenting fake narratives about the local anti-war protests.

Since then, they have been on the cutting-edge of the media business — and if their past success is any example former Sheriff Arpaio shouldn’t consider his pardoning the end of the story. Lacey and Larkin are not easily dissuaded, arrest didn’t do it, and neither will this Presidential pardon.

Fagali’I Airport

The Fagali’I Airport is one of the largest airports in and around Samoa. The airport has a long history. It is a single runaway that was once a grass strip. It was not paved until 2002. The once government owned airport was closed in 2005 due to safety concerns and complaints regarding noise from the villagers.

Polynesian airlines reopened the airport in 2009 and resumed international flights according to world-airport-codes.com. The airport is considered a hub and it does not have the many amenities associated with larger terminals.

Whether it is due to the history of the airport or because of the number of airlines that fly from and into the airport, it is always a busy place for a small terminal. Fagali’I offers a variety of budget-friendly flight options that can be booked easily through the airport’s website.
