Securus Technologies: Improving Prisons for Public Safety

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

When two leading companies in the corrections market industry merged, namely Evercom and T-Netix, Securus Technologies was born. And with the combined strength of these two companies, Securus continues to provide prisons across North and Latin America the best technologies to improve the penitentiary environment, thus improving public safety outside.


Securus Technologies provide prisons with systems that allow the law enforcement community to listen in on inmate phone calls, enabling them to gather information for a case build up. In one instance, intel gathered through an inmate phone call lead to the arrest of a corrupt penitentiary staff member. In another case, a monitored phone call contained intel about drug selling inside the facility itself, inmate drug and alcohol use, presence of narcotics, contraband mobile devices, death threats, money laundering, information about a civilian who admitted to selling over the counter drugs at a much lower price and an incident where gunshots were fired.


Securus also developed a system called the Wireless Containment Solution. What it does is it prevents contraband mobile devices from connecting to mobile networks, rendering them useless. One of the most popular systems Securus has developed is the LBS system. At one point, it was reported that through the LBS system, authorities were able to recover more than a million of illegal assets, cash, and narcotics. The law enforcers who were responsible for this case said that without a doubt, it would have been very difficult, if not impossible to do it without Securus’ LBS system.


Securus Technologies also specializes in parolee tracking. Serving more than 2,600 penitentiaries in the Americas and more than 1,000,000 prisoners in the country. The company is well known for responsive customer service and state of the art systems. Securus Technologies is based in Dallas, Texas and has four regional offices located in Allen, Texas, Carrolton, Texas as well as Atlanta, Georgia.


Because the communication quality that Securus Technologies provides is much higher than the standard quality of communication providers, especially because Securus Technologies tries to implement new tech and ways for inmates to connect with their families, like smartphones applications and with guaranteed security and monitorization.

Jeremy Goldstein And His Opinion on Knockout Options

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

According to Jeremy Goldstein, some firms prefer providing their employees with stocks instead of money compensation. One of the reasons is to save money. However, the option might end up being complex, and problems can make firms curtail such kinds of benefits. For instance, the value of the stock may drop down significantly. This will make it difficult for employees to exercise the options they have. Similarly, the stockholders will also face the risk of having overhanging options. Employees are also wary of this kind of compensation method. They understand that at some point economy may go down and their options will be rendered worthless. In that case, stock options are considered to be casino tokens and not cash. Additionally, the compensation can result in issues relating to accounting burdens.

Nevertheless, stock option as a method of compensation still has its advantages. It is preferred over other options such as better insurance coverage, equities, or additional wages. Moreover, the beneficiary can boost his or her earnings if the value of corporation’s share rises. This will encourage employees to give priority to the success of the organization. The staff members will also work hard to satisfy the needs of the existing customers, develop innovative projects, and attract desirable clients as well. The best solution is to adopt good strategies regarding stock options, and one of the best options is known as knockout. It has similar vesting requirements and time limits as the conventional methods. However, employees can lose their shares if the value falls below the defined amount. For example, an employee can receive an option of buying a stock, which lasts for five years at $150 per year. If the share is provided under the knock-out option, it will expire when its value drops below $75.

Waiakea Water: Making a Positive Difference in the World One Liter at a Time

Waiakea water is a Hawaiian volcanic bottled water brand that was founded by Ryan Emmons on June 1, 2012. It is the best brand of volcanic water, according to Waiakea water originates as both rain and snowmelt on the snow-capped peak of the Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii. The water is then filtered by numerous volcanic porous rocks. During purification, Waiakea water is enriched with minerals and electrolytes that make it naturally delicious and alkaline. Waiakea’s mission is to provide sustainable and healthy water to its customers, as well as improve accessibility of clean water to people across the world.

Waiakea considers the Hawaiian culture to respect and care for the land a foundational element of how the company is run. Waiakea does this by taking part in a wide range of eco-initiatives, such as numerous reforestation projects. These projects, along with Waiakea’s 100% recycled bottles, made the brand the first American water and beverage company to be certified CarbonNeutral. It is with no doubt that Waiakea takes its brand seriously that it has worked to build up for a while now. That is why it sets and maintains its standards high by providing great customer service and care for environment.

Waiakea is slowly making a positive impact in the lives of many. This is because a certain percentage of the sales the firm makes is used to support Pump Aid. Pump Aid is a non-profit organization that builds and installs special pumps in remote areas across the globe. The pumps allow the locals to have direct access to reliable, clean and safe water. The pumps are also easy to maintain. Although the initiative can work in any part of the world, Waiakea has focused its initiative in Malawi. Malawi is a landlocked country in Africa with a very high mortality rate and nearly 17 million of its population live in isolated rural areas. Accessibility to clean water would greatly improve their lives, reduce mortality rate which may be caused by water-related diseases and greatly improve the country’s productivity. That is why Waiakea took it upon them to help these people. By just buying a bottle of Waiakea water, one can really make a great difference in people’s lives across the world, as the company will donate a week’s worth of water for every liter purchased.

Understanding the importance of sleep is critical, yet most people are so busy in life that they don’t recognize that they aren’t getting enough sleep. In order to function properly and be healthy, a person should get approximately 7 to 9 hours of quality sleep per night. But there are more factors than bad habits that can keep you from feeling rested. Statistics show that many people suffer from sleep apnea, which is a disorder that blocks the airway when you fall asleep. There are many health-related issues that people suffer from if they do not get enough rest. This list is long, but most people can recognize the signs and symptoms of sleep disruption. Some people may experience hair loss, bags under their eyes, fine lines and more severe issues such as high blood pressure, heart disease and low oxygen levels. When the airway is cut off at night, you’re not able to get proper blood flow to your body like you should. This poses a threat to your heart and other areas of your body. By recognizing the signs and symptoms, and keeping track of how much sleep you’re getting, you can improve your health in many ways.

Dr. Weisfogel is a practicing dentist and sleep expert who has been practicing in the industry for over twenty years. He has dedicated much of his research and education to helping those who suffer from sleep apnea, and educating medical offices on what to look for if they have a patient who has symptoms. He founded Healthy Heart Sleep which is a company with a list of physicians who work together to create education and knowledge for those who suffer from lack of sleep. He also created Dental Sleep Masters, which is a program that helps medical professionals and other physicians treat patients that suffer from sleep apnea with an oral device specifically made for them.

Reasons Why Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Has Amazon Concerned

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

There aren’t too many in the fashion e-commerce market that give Amazon reason to be concerned, and that is saying quite a lot considering there are thousands of clothing retailers in the same niche fighting for the same dollar. Looking from the perspective of Amazon, they don’t have to really be worried about any other competitor in the apparel market because they are raking in just about 20 percent of all the sales anyway. There may be reason for Amazon to be very concerned if Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has anything to say about it. In a little under three years, Kate Hudson’s Fabletics has already sold $250 million in women’s workout clothing in the same niche.


When you talk to Hudson about all the recent success of her athleisure brand, you might be surprised to discover that all the success of this brand is attributed to just membership perks and the sales technique called reverse showrooming. To better understand what drives these two components, we drive to the local mall and walk into the Fabletics retail stores. Here you find a store packed with women who are browsing the racks for the latest in active-wear, they are taking the lifestyle quiz to boost membership perks, and they are trying on just about every piece of workout apparel inside the stores.


In order to be a dominant force in this competitive fashion e-commerce market, you need online sales in record numbers too. That is exactly what is happening at Kate Hudson’s Fabletics. Since you are able to try on all the active-wear inside the stores, those pieces get uploaded to your membership account, allowing the shopper to continue with the purchase when it is convenient for them. Now since they already saw how the piece looked when they tried it on, that element of wonder if it will fit has been eliminated. What happens now is those same women go impulse shopping in record numbers.


The allure to Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is the membership perks, ranging from free shipping, discounted clothing deals, and your own personal shopper. Your shopper looks at your quiz answers and will select a piece of workout apparel and put it in your cart at the top of each month. This is a shopping experience like no other, and Kate Hudson’s Fabletics appears to have caught the attention of Amazon who may have to rethink their Prime membership perks if they want to keep ahead of this company.

Doe Deere’s Makeup Isn’t the Biggest Part of Her Morning

posted by: KevKev

No Comments »

Since Doe Deere is a makeup enthusiast and someone who owns a makeup company, most would think that her morning routine would involve hours of makeup application and beauty products. It doesn’t, though. The routine that she has takes several hours but only about one hour of that is used for hair and makeup. The rest of the time that she has in the morning is dedicated to brainstorming new ideas, coming up with innovations for the brand and contemplating the different things that are going on for her that day. It is a great way for her to get her mornings started and also gives her the chance to try more than what most people are able to do throughout the day. Doe Deere knows that a great morning will always lead to a great day and that she can benefit from everything that the good morning has to offer.

When Doe Deere first gets up, she downs a big glass of water. This is so that she can stay hydrated and healthy. Los Angeles is a really dry place and she always wants to make sure that she is getting exactly what she needs from the different things that are going on. She continues to hydrate throughout the day but knows that the first glass of water of the day is the most important to keep up with the demands that her body has for her in the hot, dry heat of Southern California.

From there, Doe Deere does a little stretching and looks out her window. She likes to take in the city views and everything that is going on. She also gets a taste for the weather outside during this time. While she is looking out the window, she will look at her calendar for the day. She keeps everything that she has on a phone calendar and goes by that. She tries to make sure that she has an idea of what types of meetings and things she has during the day. It is also a great time for her to simply relax and come up with ideas for the makeup brand.

Doe Deere then makes herself breakfast. She likes to do things like fruit or grits and always tries to incorporate a filling but small breakfast into her diet. She knows that having breakfast will make the rest of the day easier and give her a lot of energy. After breakfast, she spends about 30 minutes putting her makeup on, depending on what look she is going for. She then styles her hair that she washed the night before she went to bed and finds an outfit that will match the style of the day.
