End Citizens United Makes Endorsements For 2018

End Citizens United is a political action committee that was founded in the wake a Supreme Court case called Citizens United v. The Federal Elections Commission. The Supreme Courts decision in this case in essence gutted much of the work that had been done on campaign finance reform.

The Citizens United decision allowed unrestricted money to flow into the campaigns of candidates. In many cases, the donors who give to the candidates do not have to divulge their identities.

As a result of the Supreme Court’s decision, the group End Citizens United was created. This group’s goal is to restore integrity to the financing of political campaigns. The group wants to back candidates for elected office who are committed to transparency in financing their campaigns. End Citizens United also wants to endorse candidates who are firmly committed to enacting serious campaign finance reform laws.

End Citizens United has been extremely successful in raising funds from a network of small donors. The group is then able to provide financial aid to those whom they endorse.

For 2018, ECU is endorsing several candidates who are running in some key races. One of ECUs main targets in 2018 is Senator Ted Cruz from the state of Texas. He has been identified by ECU as one of the biggest obstructionists when it comes to passing campaign finance laws.

In order to replace Senator Cruz, ECU is endorsing Beto O’Rourke. For six years, O’Rourke has served as a Congressman representing the area around the city of El Paso. Congressman O’Rourke has supported campaign finance reform legislation in the past, and he is committed to doing so in the future.

Jacky Rosen is running for the United States Senate in the state of Nevada. Her goal is to defeat the incumbent Senator Dean Heller. End Citizens United is backing Rosen. She is currently serving the House of Representatives as the representative of the Third District of Nevada.

ECU has an entire slate of candidates that they want to elect. The overall goal is to remove the 30 worst offenders when it comes to blocking campaign finance reform efforts.

Gazette Day Article Recap + OSI Merges with Turi Foods

OSI Group originally started out as a small meat market and butcher shop in Chicago, Illinois. It was started by Otto Kolschowsky, a German immigrant who migrated to Chicago toward the beginning of the 20th century. By the end of the First World War, his butcher shop had relocated and transitioned into a wholesale business.

After nearly two decades of operation, the business officially became known as Otto & Sons in 1928. After the phenomenon of nationwide economic expansion post-World War II, Otto’s two sons – Arthur and Harry Kolchowsky – had become the owners of the company. They had agreed to work with Ray Kroc, an agent for the McDonald’s, as the latter’s first supplier of ground beef.

As Otto & Sons began to grow as a manufacturer for beef patties that would later be sent to McDonald’s, they changed their company name to OSI Industries in 1975. This change signified the technological development that had occurred within the company.

OSI industries also had a change in leadership. In the early 1980s, Sheldon Lavin, who had previously worked as an investment consultant for Otto & Sons in the early 1970s, had become the new CEO of OSI industries. As it became a larger, more complicated international company, and a supplier to various large organizations, with McDonald’s being its top customer, the company has come to be known simply as OSI Group.

As of May 4, 2018, Turi Foods, a company that specializes in the production of cooked and uncooked poultry products for retail use in Australia, has merged with OSI Group. The two companies hope to combine the international reach of OSI Group with Turi’s experience in the production and processing of poultry, to form a company that offers world-class food solutions.

They hope that their similar fields of expertise, as well as their strong reputations among their respective customers, will enable them to serve consumers in newer and more innovative ways, while creating more opportunities for their employees as well.

Dr. Saad Saad – Inventor, Surgeon, and Leader

Dr. Saad Saad, a renowned Pediatrician, and his medical inventions were recently recognized in the Medical Daily Times. He has performed over a thousand procedures, with constantly prioritizing patient safety and comfort. Having been focused on continuous improvement through research, innovation of techniques and streamlining procedures, Dr. Saad Saad has notably reduced patient pain and risks.


Throughout 40 years of experience Dr. Saad Saad personally holds two patents for inventions and has developed multiple innovative pediatric procedures. Dr. Saad Saad’s impact has reached children and young adults in the US and Holyland.


His two patents are “Catheter with Integral Electromagnetic Location Identification Device (Patent Number 5,727,553)” and “Methods and Apparatus for Providing Suction and/or Irrigation in a Rigid Endoscope While Maintaining Visual Contact with a Target Area Through the Endoscope (Patent Number 5,725,478).”


Dr. Saad Saad’s first device allows professionals to locate a catheter without the scanning of machines, reducing the risk of radiation and illness. To find a catheter, the doctor will utilize signals externally similar to a metal detector. This device is small and compact, having the ability to be used in emergency situations.


The second patent enhances the use of the optical device, endoscope. The obstacle in which the patent overcomes is the foggy view endoscopes develop when viewing the body which is full of fluids. While endoscopes typically have to be removed to clear up the obstruction view and reinserted, the patent has the ability to view a specific type of the body (e.g. lungs, esophagus, large intestine) and suction away the fluid without having to remove and reinsert the optical device.


Dr. Saad Saad has personally used this patent on numerous procedures to remove needs, stuck food, and other foreign objects that were accidentally obtained by a child. This procedure’s efficiency and safety has been improved due to cutting out the action of removing the endoscope as well as having a closer and constant view. This patent is widely utilized by doctors having found success with this device, including Dr. Saad Saad.


Both of Dr. Saad Saad’s inventions have greatly aided in the innovation, safety, and inspiration within the industry. They provide a “win-win” situation for both the doctor and patient. Learn more: https://angel.co/saad-saad-2
