End Citizens United, a Political Action Committee started on the 1st of March 2015, raises funds from donors at a grassroots level. They aim to undo the political system’s erosion of the financing of campaigns at the hands of ‘Citizens United.’ End Citizens United believes that if the people rally and protest in an organized manner at a grassroots level and the voters, candidates and elected officials see this, it will in itself play a prime role in building momentum toward change and will provide the necessary pressure for the makers of the law to do take the needed action against it.
The organization aims to fight the use of wealth in rigging the United States political system by the passing of state ballot measures and electing people who will further this reform. Such elected campaigners can work against Citizens United and help end the use of unlimited funds in politics as well as the use of black money. Among other measures that they will employ include the raising of wealth in politics as a matter of national importance needing to be prioritized and the use of grassroots level members to help wield the needed political clout for the same. End Citizens United does believe that Democrats will and are already leading the battle against Citizens United. They see Republican leaders as the one’s standing in the way of doing away with the illogical and unfair Supreme Court decision and endorse candidates based on their responses to a questionnaire.

End Citizens United made a whopping $25 to $30 million during their cycle upon launch, according to their director of communication Richard Carbo. They’ve garnered over 325,000 signed petitions demanding that Congress do away with Supreme Court decision and is likely to grow even more due to the partnership with “Ready for Hillary.” They’re also willing to rent out the email list that they use to help reach out to liberal supporters. End Citizens United endorses people such as Senator Russ Feingold from Wisconsin and Senator Bennet from Colorado.
Caro considers End Citizens United different from the other players out there fighting for reform as he feels there is a void in the conversation regarding the political aspect of actually getting a person elected and into a position of power, and this information could encourage more informed public opinion on the same. End Citizens United will not only support candidates willing to stand up to Citizens United by also protect those being attacked by big money conservatives such as the Koch brothers and other like them. The organization has a plan of backing its endorsed candidates with the setting up of an independent arm of expenditure for activities such as direct mailer campaigns, television ads, and polling.

Oncotarget is a free peer-reviewed international online weekly medical journal with the original intent of sharing findings related to cancer research. But as it was found that the causes and effects of cancer-related illnesses branch out into other areas of medicine, the journal currently accepts papers on the following topics: pharmacology, age-related diseases, immunology, physiology, cell biology, metabolism, neuroscience, cardiology, and endocrinology.
The focus of Oncotarget is to allow scientists in varying medical fields to quickly share information related to cancer, cancer-fighting therapies and improving the quality of life of cancer patients through better management of their treatment. To give examples of the wide-ranging scope of articles printed in Oncotarget, three articles recently published in the journal are 1) Parkinson’s disease: no NOP, new hope, 2) Approaching Alzheimer’s disease from a network level and 3) DJ1 at the interface between neuro-regeneration and cancer.
The journal was first established in 2010 and the current Editors-in-Chief are Mikhail V. Blagosklonny and Andrei V. Gudkov, who are both employed at the Roswell Park Cancer Institute located in Buffalo, New York. One of the most remarkable traits of Oncotarget is that it papers are peer-reviewed prior to publishing to ensure the best information is presented scientists as quickly as possible, hence the weekly publishings by Impact Journals. In fact, part of the mission statement of Oncotarget stated on the website is “to make scientific results rapidly and widely available to maximize the impact of research via insightful review.” Each individual paper published in Oncotarget can be printed and shared with peers. The ultimate goal of Oncotarget is life without disease.
