Brown Modelling Agency- An All Round Talented Venture

Wilhelmina Austin Modeling Agency acquired Heyman Talent South Talent Agency, renamed the collaboration and launched The Brown Agency. With these two powerful forces joining together, The Brown Agency is the only full service(model and talent) agency in Austin, Texas and one of a very few in the entire state of Texas. The office is headquartered in Austin, Texas with offices in Dallas, TX and Los Angeles, CA. The Brown Agency opened in the summer of 2015.

Justin Brown, former President and Operator of Wilhelmina Models Austin, is the President and CEO of Brown Agency. Michael B. Bonne’e, founder of Heyman Agency, is the leader of the Brown Agency’s Theatrical Division. Justin Brown says “Merging with Heyman Talent South and becoming a full service agency is an integral part of our growth strategy and commitment to serving our talent and our clients.” He continues to say that both agencies take pride in choosing the best people, preparing them on a higher and larger level, and then delivering the most dependable, elegant, and trustworthy talent. Michael Bonne’e says that “The combined talents of the two agencies make this an exciting opportunity.” The goal of Brown Agency is to produce high standards and expectations in the modeling industry never before seen from Central Texas.

Since its launching in 2015, many of The Brown Agency’s talents have been seen working for well-known brand named companies such as Louis Vuitton, Dell, Toyota, L’oreal and a vast array of other famous brands. The Brown Agency’s models have, also. Had many high profile engagements. They have walked the runway for New York Fashion Week, Austin Fashion Week, Dallas Fashion Week, and Miami Swim Week just to name a few.

Justin Brown, President and CEO of Brown Agency, was born in Reno, Nevada but grew up in the tiny town of Susanville, just across the state line, in California. Justin was a shy child who, generally, played by the rules. When he turned eighteen, Justin moved to Southern California to pursue modeling. Upon arriving, Justin moved from firm to firm learning about the industry from the inside out.

Justin Brown studied Business Management in college, but his real interest lied in what went on behind the cameras. In the midst of searching and getting other jobs, Justin landed a job entitled Development and Placement where he trained the models to act like professionals. He, then, would either find them work or would help them graduate to bigger ventures.

Brown, now thirty-five, is still carrying on that legacy today at Brown Group. “We make sure they look right, have the right photos, and introduce them to the largest agencies in the world.” Brown said. He is also very well known for saying “We are only as good as our talent.”

Beneful Commercials Have Happy Animals

The very first Beneful commercial I watched began with a man asking his dog what type of wet dog food he wanted to eat. The view is from inside the refrigerator and you see the angle as if you were one of the packages of food. The man offers the dog a few different flavors. First he asked if he would like Beef Stew. The dog barks and the man goes into detail about how juicy and full of hearty meat and vegetables it is. Then you see the dog actually enjoying the Beneful dog food and the owner recieves a hug and dog kisses at the very end.

The second commercial begins with a dog bringing his favorite toy to his owner. The owner is incredibly happy to receive such a gift. The man is explaining to his dog that he is going to want to play with his toy more now that he is eating Beneful Playful dry dog food brand. The narrator describes how the food is made with all natural and real ingredients while the food is featured in the background. Near the end of the video the dog and owner are playing fetch together in and outside of the house.

Border Patrol Abuse Likely to Increase as BP Hiring Surge Continues

No More Deaths, an immigration rights advocacy group, reports that Border Control agents have surrounded their humanitarian aid camp in southern Arizona. At the camp, volunteers are able to provide food, water, and basic first aid to immigrants who cross the US-Mexican border – an act that drew the attention and surveillance of the Border Patrol.

The Border Patrol frequently threatens No More Deaths volunteers, or slashes apart the water bottles that they leave along the most frequently traveled routes.

Those water bottles save lives, especially in the southern desert where summertime temperatures soar above 100 degrees and migrants suffer from heat exhaustion, dehydration, and possibly death when those are left untreated.

Such behavior violates morality and even international human rights law, which forbids a government from destroying humanitarian aid. Even the Border Patrol officially does not condemn leaving out water for thirty immigrants crossing the border.

And now, with new legislation coming out of the House of Representatives, that sort of behavior might become even more common. The Anti-Border Corruption Reauthorization Act actually reduces the amount of training and hiring standards for its agents on the border, and exempt them from a polygraph test.

Sixty-five percent of applicants fail the polygraph test, and exempting them will put those people on the border, patrolling it, and possibly imperiling people’s lives. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.bizjournals.com/phoenix/potmsearch/detail/submission/6427427/Jim_Larkin

The failed polygraphs often involved gruesome confessions, of drug smuggling, rape, and other serious criminal offenses. Without a polygraph, those might never surface, but the Border Patrol probably wanted them gone in order to reach the hiring boosts ordered by the Trump administration.

Hiring boosts have often gone hand-in-hand with increases in corruption and torture. From 2003 to 2016, the Border Patrol doubled its agents. In the same period, the number of Border Patrol agents charged with civil rights violations or off-duty crimes rose by 44 percent. Nearly 200 were arrested for corruption between 2004 and now, and agents have shot and killed at least 67 people.

Those sorts of incidents are exactly what No More Deaths is concerned about as the Border Patrol continues to encircle and harass their camp, and destroy the supplies left out for migrants. Mike Lacey and Jim Larkin have also documented over 30,000 cases of abuse and mistreatment by the Border Patrol against immigrants in custody.

No More Deaths works in partnership with the Lacey and Larkin Foundation. Lacey and Jim have co-founded the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media, two news organizations dedicated to speaking up for the voiceless in the immigration debate.

The Foundation draws its revenue from the 3.75 million dollar arrest settlement after they were arrested by Maricopa County Sheriff Joe Arpaio. The arrests happened after a grand jury ruled that they should surrender all their notes on the Sheriff and identify readers of their papers who read stories involving Joe Arpaio.

They appealed and won on the U.S 9th circuit court of appeals, citing their First Amendment Rights, then took that money and have used it to fund migrant rights organizations throughout Arizona.
