The American Federation of Labor and Congress of Industrial Organizations (AFL–CIO) is a national trade union center and the largest federation of unions in the United States. It is made up of fifty-six national and international unions, together representing more than 12 million active and retired workers. The AFL-CIO is one of the highest-spending and most politically active unions.
The AFL-CIO was formed in 1955 when the AFL and the CIO merged after a long estrangement. Membership in the union peaked in 1979, when the AFL-CIO had nearly twenty million members. From 1955 until 2005, the AFL–CIO's member unions represented nearly all unionized workers in the United States. Several large unions split away from AFL–CIO and formed the rival Change to Win Federation in 2005 but a number of those unions have since re-affiliated. The largest union currently in the AFL–CIO is the American Federation of State, County and Municipal Employees (AFSCME), with approximately 1.4 million members.

In later years, his films began addressing humanistic issues such as the Holocaust (in Schindler's List), the transatlantic slave trade (in Amistad), war (in Empire of the Sun, Saving Private Ryan, and War Horse), and terrorism (in Munich). He is one of the co-founders of DreamWorks Studios.
His other notable films include Close Encounters of the Third Kind, the Indiana Jones film series, and A.I. Artificial Intelligence. Spielberg won the Academy Award for Best Director for Schindler's List (1993) and Saving Private Ryan (1998).

He first gained attention with the 1959 novella Goodbye, Columbus, an irreverent and humorous portrait of American Jewish life for which he received the U.S. National Book Award for Fiction. Roth's fiction, regularly set in Newark, New Jersey, is known for its intensely autobiographical character, for philosophically and formally blurring the distinction between reality and fiction, for its "supple, ingenious style" and for its provocative explorations of Jewish and American identity. His profile rose significantly in 1969 after the publication of the controversial Portnoy's Complaint, the humorous and sexually explicit psychoanalytical monologue of "a lust-ridden, mother-addicted young Jewish bachelor," filled with "intimate, shameful detail, and coarse, abusive language."

A Human Resources Management System (HRMS) or Human Resources Information System (HRIS), refers to the systems and processes at the intersection between human resource management (HRM) and information technology. It merges HRM as a discipline and, in particular, its basic HR activities and processes with the information technology field, whereas the programming of data processing systems evolved into standardized routines and packages of enterprise resource planning (ERP) software. On the whole, these ERP systems have their origin from software that integrates information from different applications into one universal database. The linkage of its financial and human resource modules through one database is the most important distinction to the individually- and proprietarily-developed predecessors, which makes this software application both rigid and flexible.
A Human Capital Management Solution, Human Resources Management System (HRMS), or Human Resources Information System (HRIS), as it is commonly called, is the crossing of HR systems and processes with information technology. The wave of technological advancement has revolutionized each and every space of life today, and HR in its entirety was not left untouched. Early systems were narrow in scope, typically focused on a single task, such as improving the payroll process or tracking employees' work hours. Today's systems cover the full spectrum of tasks associated with Human Resources departments, including tracking & improving process efficiency, managing organizational hierarchy, and simplifying financial transactions of all types. In short, as the role of Human Resources departments expanded in complexity, HR technology systems evolved to fit these needs.

Planned Parenthood Federation of America (PPFA) or often just Planned Parenthood is a non-profit organization which provides reproductive health and maternal and child health services. It is the U.S. affiliate of the International Planned Parenthood Federation (IPPF) and one of its larger members. The Planned Parenthood Action Fund is the nonpartisan advocacy and political arm of PPFA. The Action Fund engages in educational and electoral activity, including legislative advocacy, voter education, and grassroots organizing to promote the PPFA mission. PPFA has its roots in Brooklyn, New York, where Margaret Sanger opened the first birth-control clinic in the U.S. She founded the American Birth Control League in 1921, which in 1942 became part of PPFA. Since then it has grown to approximately 85 affiliates and 820 clinics in the U.S., with a total budget of US $1 billion. PPFA provides services to over three million people in the United States, and supports services for over one million people outside the United States.
PPFA is the largest U.S. provider of reproductive health services, with 97% of its clinical interactions focused on breast and cervical cancer screening, HIV screening and counseling, contraception, and 3% on abortion, though these numbers have been challenged. PPFA conducts roughly 300,000 abortions annually, among the 3 million people the organization serves. In recent years, PPFA has begun to move away from the pro-choice label to words and phrases that more accurately reflect the entire range of women's health and economic issues. Throughout its history PPFA has experienced support, controversy, protests, and violent attacks.

He is most notable for leading the lawsuit against WorldCom on behalf of the New York State Common Retirement Fund and other plaintiffs. In the WorldCom case, Coffey and his team recovered over $6 billion from Wall Street banks and forced the responsible parties to personally pay millions of dollars in compensation. This led Bloomberg Markets to dub Coffey "Wall Street's New Nemesis." In late 2009, Coffey retired from his partnership at Bernstein Litowitz Berger & Grossmann to seek the Democratic nomination for New York State Attorney General in which he finished third out of five candidates. In 2011, Sean Coffey co-founded BlackRobe Capital Partners.

The Nineteenth Amendment (Amendment XIX) to the United States Constitution prohibits any United States citizen from being denied the right to vote on the basis of sex. It was ratified on August 18, 1920. The Constitution allows the states to determine the qualifications of voters, subject to limitations imposed by later amendments. Until the 1910s, most states disenfranchised women. The amendment was the culmination of the women's suffrage movement in the United States, which fought at both state and national levels to achieve the vote. It effectively overruled Minor v. Happersett, in which a unanimous Supreme Court ruled that the Fourteenth Amendment did not give women the right to vote.
The Nineteenth Amendment was first introduced in Congress in 1878 by Senator Aaron A. Sargent. Forty-one years later, in 1919, Congress approved the amendment and submitted it to the states for ratification. It was ratified by the requisite number of states a year later, with Tennessee's ratification being the final vote needed to add the amendment to the Constitution. In Leser v. Garnett (1922), the Supreme Court rejected claims that the amendment was unconstitutionally adopted.

Thomas Alva Edison (February 11, 1847 – October 18, 1931) was an American inventor and businessman. He developed many devices that greatly influenced life around the world, including the phonograph, the motion picture camera, and a long-lasting, practical electric light bulb. Dubbed "The Wizard of Menlo Park", he was one of the first inventors to apply the principles of mass production and large-scale teamwork to the process of invention, and because of that, he is often credited with the creation of the first industrial research laboratory.
Edison was a prolific inventor, holding 1,093 US patents in his name, as well as many patents in the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. More significant than the number of Edison's patents was the widespread impact of his inventions: electric light and power utilities, sound recording, and motion pictures all established major new industries world-wide. Edison's inventions contributed to mass communication and, in particular, telecommunications. These included a stock ticker, a mechanical vote recorder, a battery for an electric car, electrical power, recorded music and motion pictures.

Christendom has several meanings. In a cultural sense, it refers to the religion itself, or to the worldwide community of Christians, adherents of Christianity. In its historical sense, the term usually refers to the medieval and early modern period, during which the Christian world represented a geopolitical power juxtaposed with both paganism and especially the military threat of the Muslim world. In the more limited and traditional sense of the word, it refers to the sum total of nations in which the Catholic Church is the established religion of the state, or which have ecclesiastical concordats with the Holy See.
In a contemporary sense, it may simply refer collectively to Christian majority countries or countries in which Christianity dominates or nations in which Christianity is the established religion.

Despite the continued growth of industrial real estate, its specialists had little representation within the National Association of Real Estate Boards (NAREB), the predecessor to today’s National Association of Realtors (NAR). With this in mind and anticipating the increased need for industrial spaces on account of the outbreak of World War II, industrial realtors Frank G. Binswanger and David T. Houston, Sr. made an effort to organize and coordinate industrial realtors across the United States and Canada. They were able to gain sponsorship for the founding of Society of Industrial Realtors (SIR), and in the fall of 1940 at NAREB’s national convention in Philadelphia, and the formation of a national body of industrial realtors was approved. One year and two months later, The United States entered World War II.

John Sherman (May 10, 1823 – October 22, 1900) was an American Republican representative and senator from Ohio during the Civil War and into the late nineteenth century. He also served as both Secretary of the Treasury and Secretary of State and was the principal author of the Sherman Antitrust Act. Sherman ran for the Republican presidential nomination three times, coming closest in 1888, but never winning. His brothers included General William Tecumseh Sherman of Civil War fame, Charles Taylor Sherman, a federal judge in Ohio, and Hoyt Sherman, an Iowa banker.
Born in Lancaster, Ohio, Sherman later moved to Mansfield, Ohio, where he began a law career before entering politics. Initially a Whig, Sherman was among those anti-slavery activists who formed what became the Republican Party. He served three terms in the House of Representatives. As a member of the House, Sherman traveled to Kansas to investigate the unrest between pro- and anti-slavery partisans there. He rose in party leadership and was nearly elected Speaker in 1859. Sherman was elevated to the Senate in 1861. As a senator, he was a leader in financial matters, helping to redesign the United States' monetary system to meet the needs of a nation torn apart by civil war. After the war, he worked to produce legislation that would restore the nation's credit abroad and produce a stable, gold-backed currency at home.

Preanesthetic assessment (also called Preanesthesia evaluation, Pre-anesthesia checkup (PAC) or simply Preanesthesia) is a medical check-up and laboratory investigations done by the anesthesiologist before an operation, to assess the patient's physical condition and any other medical problems or diseases the patient might be suffering from. The goal of the assessment is to identify factors that significantly increase the risk of complications, and modify the procedure appropriately. The aim is to identify the appropriate anesthetic techniques to be used, to ensure the safety of perioperative care, optimal resource use, improved outcomes, and patient satisfaction, while considering the individual and person related risk factors and circumstances. The preanesthetic assessment involves the consideration of information from various sources that include the past medical records, interview, physical examination, as well as results from medical and laboratory tests.
General recommendations have been published in the USA and in India.

An internal ribosome entry site, abbreviated IRES, is a nucleotide sequence that allows for translation initiation in the middle of a messenger RNA (mRNA) sequence as part of the greater process of protein synthesis. Usually, in eukaryotes, translation can be initiated only at the 5' end of the mRNA molecule, since 5' cap recognition is required for the assembly of the initiation complex. The location for these sites is often in the 5'UTR, but can occur in many different places in an mRNA.

Greenwood is a neighborhood in Tulsa, Oklahoma. As one of the most successful and wealthiest African American communities in the United States during the early 20th Century, it was popularly known as America's "Black Wall Street" until the terroristic acts of white residents lead to the Tulsa race riot of 1921, in which white residents massacred black residents and razed the neighborhood within hours. The riot was one of the most devastating massacres in the history of U.S. race relations, destroying the once thriving Greenwood community.
Within five years after the massacre, surviving residents who chose to remain in Tulsa rebuilt much of the district. They accomplished this despite the opposition of many white Tulsa political and business leaders and punitive rezoning laws enacted to prevent reconstruction. It resumed being a vital black community until segregation was overturned by the Federal Government during the 1950s and 1960s. Desegregation encouraged blacks to live and shop elsewhere in the city, causing Greenwood to lose much of its original vitality. Since then, city leaders have attempted to encourage other economic development activity nearby.

Captain America: The First Avenger is a 2011 American superhero film based on the Marvel Comics character Captain America, produced by Marvel Studios and distributed by Paramount Pictures.[a] It is the fifth installment in the Marvel Cinematic Universe. The film was directed by Joe Johnston, written by Christopher Markus & Stephen McFeely, and stars Chris Evans, Tommy Lee Jones, Hugo Weaving, Hayley Atwell, Sebastian Stan, Dominic Cooper, Neal McDonough, Derek Luke, and Stanley Tucci. Set predominantly during World War II, the film tells the story of Steve Rogers, a sickly man from Brooklyn who is transformed into super-soldier Captain America to aid in the war effort. Rogers must stop the Red Skull, Adolf Hitler's ruthless head of weaponry and the leader of an organization that intends to use an artifact called the "Tesseract"[b] as an energy-source for world domination.
Captain America: The First Avenger began as a concept in 1997 and was scheduled for distribution by Artisan Entertainment. However, a lawsuit, not settled until September 2003, disrupted the project. In 2005, Marvel Studios received a loan from Merrill Lynch, and planned to finance and release it through Paramount Pictures. Directors Jon Favreau and Louis Leterrier were interested in directing the project before Johnston was approached in 2008. The principal characters were cast between March and June 2010. Production of Captain America: The First Avenger began in June 2010, and filming took place in London, Manchester, Caerwent, and Liverpool in the United Kingdom, and Los Angeles in the United States. The film was converted to 3D in post-production.

WE THE PEOPLE, NOT WASHINGTON
More Info...
$853,548
"We The People, Not Washington" is a Super PAC formed to support Governor Pataki's future agenda to empower the citizens of our great nation, dismantle the perpetual growth and overreach of the federal government and begin reducing the size of the federal government to a more appropriate level. It’s clear that Washington’s power over our lives has grown beyond measure. In the next election, we will have a once in a generation opportunity to fix our nation’s troubles. Governor Pataki believes our next President must reduce the size, scope and cost of government, make the tax code simpler and more fair, institute term limits for Congress and end the fixed DC insider game by permanently banning retired members from lobbying. Governor Pataki believes in the maxim, that “states are the laboratories of democracy,” because he has put it to work. As the 10th Amendment requires, the federal government should leave most issues such as healthcare and education to the states and the people. Having experienced the devastation of terrorism up close on 9/11, Governor Pataki knows America must take a hardline against Islamic extremism. Governor Pataki is a vocal advocate of proactively pursuing terrorists before they attack our homeland again. Our next President can’t begin with a worldwide apology tour; we need to take the fight to the terrorists directly. Everyone is familiar with the phrase “too big to fail.” Governor Pataki believes “Washington has become too big to succeed.” Our nation’s capital is too powerful, too intrusive and too expensive. For decades, Americans have felt increasingly disconnected from the federal government but under President Obama’s policies we have reached a tipping point. The time has come for sweeping, fundamental reform. Governor Pataki defeated Democrat icon Mario Cuomo in a race the experts said was impossible to win and then went on to twice be re-elected in one of the largest and bluest states in the country. He is the only person ever elected Governor of New York State running not just on the Republican line, but on the Conservative line as well. As Governor, he helped revive a crippled economy not once but twice, when he first took office and again after the attacks of September 11th. By standing up to a big spending legislature, shrinking government, vetoing thousands of spending items, excising thousands of government regulations, and implementing one of the largest tax cut programs in American history, Governor Pataki put the Empire State back on track. As Governor, he was able to effectively lead New York by articulating an optimistic conservative vision and seeking common ground with those who hold different views while never wavering on fundamental principles. Our country’s irrational campaign finance laws make it nearly impossible for Governor Pataki to begin a campaign for President. That’s why we are forming this Super PAC instead to ensure that Americans can discuss the Governor’s vision for our nation’s future. We are promoting Governor Pataki’s ideas because we cannot lose the debate in this election as we did in 2008 and 2012. If people can only hear the ideas of “favored” candidates, Republicans will lose to Hillary Clinton. America should have leaders with records of accomplishment, who are focused on the issues that matter and who have won tough elections despite challenging demographics. While we are not campaigning to elect a President, it is our hope the Governor will be encouraged by the positive support he hears from you. And we believe these issues are so important that we intend to continue operating this PAC long into 2016.
A super PAC promoting former New York Gov. George Pataki will be on the air and online with a new ad beginning Thursday. The ad, titled "Undefeated," promotes the Republican presidential candidate as a leader able to defeat Democrat Hillary Clinton in a general election.

REFORM WASHINGTON
More Info...

Electoral reform in Washington refers to efforts to change the voting laws in the U.S. State of Washington. In 2006, Pierce County's electorate adopted Amendment 3, voting to switch to instant-runoff voting, a voting system in which voters rank candidates in order of preference. Part of the impetus for this measure was dissatisfaction with the "pick-a-party primary" system. Washington requires 1,000 petition signatures for printed ballot access. Voting rights of felons are restored upon completion of sentence, including prison, parole, and probation. Bills to join the National Popular Vote Interstate Compact and award Washington's 11 electoral votes to the winner of the nationwide popular vote winner were introduced in both houses of the Washington State Legislature in 2007, but they died. The Bill was re-introduced in 2009, passed, and was signed into law.
In 2005, Toby Nixon, a Republican member of the Washington State House of Representatives, started a campaign to implement the Schulze method for the election of the governor of Washington. However, this campaign ended abruptly when Toby Nixon wasn't re-elected in 2006.

America Rising is a Political Action Committee (PAC) that produces opposition research on Democratic Party members. It is located in Alexandria, Virginia. It was founded in March 2013 by Mitt Romney's 2012 presidential campaign manager, Matt Rhoades. Political strategist Tim Miller left the Republican National Committee (RNC) to join the clearinghouse. As of January 2014, between the PAC and the Limited Liability Corporation (LLC) run by fellow opposition research veteran Joe Pounder, the organization employed 47 people, full or part-time. CNN reported that America Rising would be split into two entities: a super PAC that aimed to spread negative stories about congressional Democratic incumbents and candidates through digital channels and earned media, and a LLC that would house a video library to be shared with GOP candidates, the RNC and other right-leaning groups. To avoid making illegal in-kind corporate contributions, the LLC would likely need to charge candidates for access to the library. Pounder and Miller estimated it would have a budget of between $10 and $15 million for the 2013-2014 election cycle.
America Rising released a split screen video of Democratic Senate candidate Bruce Braley being readied for a televised appearance alongside a similar video of former U.S. Senator John Edwards.

The Republican Party, commonly referred to as GOP (abbreviation for Grand Old Party), is one of the two major contemporary political parties in the United States, the other being its historic rival, the Democratic Party.
Founded by anti-slavery activists, modernizers, ex-Whigs, and ex-Free Soilers in 1854, the Republicans dominated politics nationally and in the majority of northern States for most of the period between 1860 and 1932. There have been 18 Republican presidents, the first being Abraham Lincoln, who served from 1861 until his assassination in 1865, and the most recent being George W. Bush, who served from 2001 to 2009. The most recent Republican presidential nominee is former Massachusetts governor Mitt Romney, who lost in 2012 to Democratic incumbent Barack Obama.


About Independent-Expenditure Only Political Action Committees(Super PACs):

The 2010 Citizens United Supreme Court decision set the stage for the creation of Super PACs. A few weeks following that decision, the Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit ruled in SpeechNow.org v. Federal Election Commission that PACs which did not make contributions to candidates, political parties, or other PACs were allowed to accept unlimited contributions from individuals, unions, and corporations (both for profit and not-for-profit) for the purpose of making "independent expenditures," which are outlined above. The result of this ruling was the creation of a new class of political action committees, which have come to be known as Super PACs. They are known officially as "independent-expenditure only committees," and they must refrain from contributing to politcal candidaties or political parties directly, but may engage in unlimited politcal spending without collaborating with these entities. Unlike traditional PACs, these Super PACs can raise unlimited funding from corporations, unions, other groups, and individuals, making them a unique vehicle for very large political donations.

As noted, Super PACs were made possible by two judicial decisions. First, in January 2010 the U.S. Supreme Court held in Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission that government may not prohibit unions and corporations from making independent expenditure for political purposes. Two months later, in Speechnow.org v. FEC, the Federal Court of Appeals for the D.C. Circuit held that contributions to groups that only make independent expenditures could not be limited in the size and source of contributions to the group.

According to Federal Election Commission advisories, Super PACs are not allowed to coordinate directly with candidates or political parties. This is intended to prevent them from operating campaigns that complement or parallel those of the candidates they support or engaging in negotiation that could result in quid pro quo bargaining between donors to the PAC and the candidate or officeholder. However, it is legal for candidates and Super PAC managers to discuss campaign strategy and tactics through the media.

About the Citizen's United Decision:

Citizens United v. Federal Election Commission, 558 U.S. 50 (2010), was a landmark United States Supreme Court case in which the Court held that the First Amendment prohibited the government from restricting independent political expenditures by corporations and unions. The nonprofit corporation Citizens United wanted to air a film critical of Hillary Clinton and to advertise the film during television broadcasts in apparent violation of the 2002 Bipartisan Campaign Reform Act (commonly known as the McCain–Feingold Act or "BCRA"). In a 5–4 decision, the Court held that portions of BCRA §203 violated the First Amendment.

The decision overruled Austin v. Michigan Chamber of Commerce (1990) and partially overruled McConnell v. Federal Election Commission (2003). The Court, however, upheld requirements for public disclosure by sponsors of advertisements (BCRA §201 and §311). The case did not involve the federal ban on direct contributions from corporations or unions to candidate campaigns or political parties, which remain illegal in races for federal office.

About This Data:

The United States Government makes all political contribution data available online through the Federal Election Commission's website. The data here is constructed in the following manner: First, the database is queried to find a list of the 50 largest Super PACs. Next, using this list and the individual contributor data, all contributions from the largest contributors is compiled together. From the list, the contributors are ranked based on their total contributions to any of the Super PACs on the list. For instance, if Contributor A gives $500,000 to one PAC and $250,000 to another PAC, his or her total contribution is listed as $750,000. As of now the list gives no indication of the political affiliation of any of the PACs or donors, but this is a possible future area for exploration. Coming soon is a list of the top super PACs, as well as the other highest-grossing political committees. Please contact buyingyourfuture@gmail.com if you have any questions or concerns with the data presented here or the methodology used to compile this data.
