Jim Larkin

On January 21, 1876, James Larkin was born to a Irish parents in Liverpool, England. The boy, who would become known as Jim Larkin or “Big Jim” Larkin, went on to be central to the Irish labor movement.

Larkin’s early years were spent in poverty in Liverpool and, later, the small Irish village of Burren in the County Down. He received little formal education and had to go to work while still young. By his twenties, he had regular employment on the docks. These early experiences helped to shape his ideals.

In 1905, Larkin rose to prominence during a dock strike. Shortly after, he became a full-time organizer for the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL). It was in this role that he became the first to organize the unskilled laborers of Belfast.

Not long after a perceived betrayal by NUDL leaders during a lockout, Larkin was sent to Dublin to mobilize port workers. There he chose to break free and establish his own union, the Irish Transport and General Workers Union (ITGWU). Read more: Jim Larkin | Biography

ITGWU quickly grew and became the largest in Ireland within just a few years. In 1911, Larkin established a weekly labor newspaper. The following year, he acquired Liberty Hall as the union’s headquarters.

During this same time, ITGWU had successfully organized almost all unskilled labor in Dublin. One of the exceptions was the Dublin United Tramway Company (DUTC). Confrontation with DUTC would lead to the 1913 Dublin Lockout and a sharp defeat for Larkin’s union.

After this devastation, Jim Larkin traveled to the United States to raise money to rebuild the union. His political activities led to his imprisonment for nearly three years. In 1923, he was deported back to Ireland where he was warmly welcomed.

Despite his efforts, however, he never again fully regained his standing within the labor movement. Instead, he eventually found himself pushed out of the very union that he had founded.

On January 30, 1947, Larkin died in Dublin. However, his legend lives on. He was commemorated with a statue in Dublin, and he has been mentioned in several poems and songs.

Ride the Wave of Waiakea Water

Ryan Emmons founded Waiakea Hawaiian Volcanic Water in 2012. He comes from the native side of Santa Barbara, California. He came up with this idea during his freshman year in University of Santa California Marshall School of business. He ventured into this with his buddy Matt Meyers who became part of the board of directors. His idea was prompted during his youth age when he was spending with his family in Hawaii. He knew he was sitting on a million dollar idea because the water there was healthy, pure and sustainable.

Its natural source comes from the southwest of the town Hilo on the Hawaiian island through the feet of the Mauna Loa volcano. Since it comes through the volcano, it contains tons of minerals in it like magnesium, calcium, and potassium. They all contribute to healthy bones, skin, hair, and nails. It also contains an ideal amount of silica that lenders a soft and silky mouth-feel of the water.

This product is sustainable, bears unique health benefits, and it is eco-friendly, even with its packaging. He has partnered with Pump Aid where he gets to donate about 650 milliliters of water to the communities in Africa that require it. That’s after every sale of a bottle of water. The valuation of his company is about 10 million dollars.

This company is the first to use the timeplast additive during its manufacture. Its primary purpose is to produce a non-degradable item that is made out of recycled bottles. From Emmons perspective on why this product was not invented earlier is that the scientist previously focused on making plastic stronger rather than weakening it. Mr. Emmons says that it was quite challenging to create it. They had to find a patent that was approved by the USPTO and similarly very degradable.

The time plast additive was meant to reduce the ecological footprint of the plastics during production and recycling too. Since it is Eco-friendly and favors the economy, it has become favorable to many people. Its incumbent values make it have a global importance.
