Securus Technologies Helping Keep Men in Blue Safe

I am currently working as a corrections officer inside an extremely dangerous prison that is packed with the worst offenders in the country. When people commit violent crimes, they are sent to my prison, and that means me and my staff are in danger each time we come to work. There are only so many things that we can do each day to keep the peace, but thanks to Securus Technologies things are getting much better for everyone behind these prison walls.

 

In the past, me and my team of corrections officers would begin the day with a number of surprise cell inspections. Since we had limited help and time, we could only do a few each day and the inmates could usually figure out when we were on our way. In the afternoon we would man the visitor canter to search the inmates and their guests for any types of contraband. While this is effective, we are seriously outnumbered and only have so many eyes on the families, so things get by.

 

This year Securus Technologies installed our inmate telephone call monitoring system, and this resource has helped us in more ways than we ever thought possible. The LBS software will carefully monitor every call and every minute the inmates are using the prison phones. If certain chatter is detected, we get the alert and can be in position to take care of the issue in a lightning fast manner. It doesn’t matter if the inmates are talking about doing drugs in their cells, smuggling drugs to the jail, or participating in an attack on a rival gang, we get that information and take swift action.

 

What this does for my team is allows them to spend even more time doing cell inspections, monitoring visitor activity, and keeping the peace with the inmates now.

He was a key negotiator in the Palestinian- Israeli peace negotiations as well as the Israeli-Syrian peace talks. He was the representative of Israel during the UN investigations into the Gaza convoy incident. Taub served as legal advisor to the missions of Israel in the U.N.

During his Ambassadorship, the relationship between Britain and Israel improved. This lead to increased trade between Israel and Britain, where more than 30 new Israeli businesses were set up in the U.K and the yearly trade between the two countries was more than 5.5 billion dollars.

On 2013 January, he was awarded the Grassroots Diplomat Award for supporting upcoming entrepreneurs and developing trade.

Taub has a very intimate association with the Jewish community living in Britain. He is responsible for the Embracement of Closer to Israel Program by the Jewish community for Israel’s 65th birthday. He was also the first Israel Ambassador to the International Maritime Organization based in London.

One of the most significant things he did was boldly visiting Bradford after George Galloway declared the city “Israel free zone” where Israeli tourists, students or even goods were not allowed into the city. Taub stated that he was invited to the city by the community and would be meeting faith leaders, councilors, and other groups.

He stated that Galloway was not representing the voice of the people as the city portrayed a different attitude towards Israelis. Daniel Taub stated that it is important for people of different faiths, cultures, and backgrounds to work together and coexist in a peaceful society.

Daniel Taub also writes about Israel and the Middle East and his articles are featured in The Daily Telegraph, The Huffington Post, the Guardian and The Times. He also wrote the script of Hechatzer, an Israeli drama series. He is the author of Tarasha Diplomatit, a book of diplomatic approach based on the Bible context.

The Frontera Fund Already Organizing For DACA Phase Out

The Frontera Fund, established by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin with the funds won in a financial settlement for illegal detention against Sheriff Joe Arpaio, has been organizing for some time to prepare for the repeal of DACA. The so-called ‘dreamers’ who are protected by the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals provides individuals brought to the U.S. illegally by their parents as children with a two-year renewable visa allowing them to work and live legally in the U.S.

 

Although President Donald Trump had made the repeal of DACA, initially established by President Barrack Obama, a campaign promise during the 2016 election, he had attempted to sidestep the issue in the first months of his Administration; Texas Attorney General, Ken Paxton, had threatened legal action if DACA was not withdrawn by the September 5, 2017, deadline. The Trump Administration has since announced a phasing out period for DACA that has been anticipated for a number of months by The Frontera Fund, who have been preparing for this day by organizing in a similar way to that seen in 2012.

 

Pressure had begun to mount on the Trump Administration when nine other Republican-controlled states joined the call for a phasing out of the DACA program, which has had a positive effect on an estimated 800,000 ‘dreamers’ brought to the U.S. by their parents. The Frontera Fund reports the Head of the Department of Homeland Security went so far as to attend a meeting of the Hispanic Caucus in Washington to explain how the phasing out of the program would affect communities across the U.S. and the 800,000 ‘dreamers’ already registered for DACA.

 

The Frontera Fund has been vocal in its support of DACA across the five years it has been in operation and has benefitted the economy of the U.S. in a range of different ways. Those who have chosen to take part in the DACA program have shown a 95 percent study and work rate, with the contribution made to many different companies called invaluable by industry leaders. Earnings for those registered under DACA are shown to have risen to a higher level than those seen in illegal immigrant not registered with DACA, bringing in many new taxes to the government of the U.S.

Drink Healthy, Drink Sustainably, and Drink Ethically with Waiakea Water

Waiakea is the first volcanic bottled water company from Hawaii. Their mission is captured in their slogan: “Drink Healthy, Drink Sustainably, Drink Ethically.” They have become known for their high quality, sustainably produced water and their efforts to distribute clean water to places in need. Waiakea water originates as rain and snow-melt at the top of the Mauna Loa volcano on the Big Island of Hawaii. During its 14,000 foot descent to the bottom, the water is filtered through porous lava and naturally instilled with minerals like calcium, magnesium, and potassium, giving it a slightly alkaline pH. Waiakea’s water is bottled in BPA free, recycled plastic which requires 85% less energy and 90% less water to produce compared to traditional water bottles, and reduces carbon emissions over 90.4%. Waiakea worked with The CarbonNeutral company and Ecometrica, companies which specialize in emission reduction, to reduce their environmental impact to net-zero.

Waiakea is known for their humanitarian efforts. They donate 650 liters of water to places in need for every liter sold, which is estimated to be 5% of the company’s revenue. Waiakea partnered with the company Pump Aid to help distribute clean water in rural parts of Africa. Through the partnership, Waiakea has helped to install 4,230 water pumps in the country of Malawi and provided 1.35 million people with clean drinking water and sanitation. Their efforts in Malawi have helped lower cases of malnutrition and disease. Waiakea hopes to expand their efforts to the arid sub-Saharan region.

Since their creation in 2012 by Ryan Emmons, Waiakea has seen rapid growth and gained worldwide acclaim. Bottle distribution increased from 2,304 cases to 122,400 cases in three and a half years and is available in national food chains such as Whole Foods.

Sleep apnea can be such an interfering condition that many people go out of their way just to find the best methods to remedy it. There are several ways that people can have the treatment they want for their sleep apnea conditions, but not many have managed to do so. One of the individuals who are seeking creative ways to answer the problem of sleep apnea is Dr. Avi Weisfogel, who right now attempts to explain the condition with the help of dentistry.

Dentistry’s Cure for Sleep Apnea

Sleep is something that many people overlook because they say it’s just natural not to have a regular sleep every day. This issue is not the truth, as evidenced by the research and studies done by Dr. Avi Weisfogel with regards to sleep apnea’s relation to dentistry problem. The condition of sleep apnea is a barrier in making sure that you get a good night’s sleep. The condition that makes one not sleep well caused by some dental obstacles’ in one’s mouth is, therefore, Dr. Avi’s concern. With Dr. Weisfogel’s help, he can find the best ways to answer the needs of a person who wants to alter their dental habits to get the good night sleep one deserves.

About Dr. Weisfogel

It is the vision and mission of being the expert in sleep apnea and who can provide complete relief for patients needing help for their sleep problems. Dr. Avi Weisfogel acquired his dental certification from New York University’s College of Dentistry. Following that, he founded Old Bridge Dental Care, where he won several awards, including Best Dentist Award for two years in a row.

The development of his career also saw Dr. Weisfogel reaching for greater heights by pursuing a master’s program in Dental Sleep, which is a course that helps people get orally applied therapy that gives them the good night sleep they want and deserve. The treatment involves marking the entry way of the mouth so that there is no obstruction when the person is asleep.

Louis Chenevert’s Unique Leadership Skills

As one of the world’s most internationally respected businessmen, Louis Chenevert has benefited from tremendous success for more than two decades.

After receiving his bachelor’s degree from HEC Montreal, Chenevert was employed by General Motors for 14 years. He went on to work at aircraft manufacturer Pratt & Whitney Canada in 1993 and became president of the company within six years.

In 2006, Chenevert was elected chief executive officer and president of United Technologies Corporation (UTC). During his tenure at UTC, a company involved in the research and manufacture of high-technology products as well as the building and aerospace industries, he played a major role in advancing the company to new heights.

For example, Chenevert played a large part in the company’s extraordinary share price rise from $37 to $117, roughly 200 percent. He was also responsible for UTC maintaining its leadership in innovation. He accomplished this by continuing to pay fair wages to workers and by conformity with environmental regulations. He also did not take part in outsourcing.

Chenevert saw the potential for UTC to make the most of its employees skills where required. He took the opportunity to reposition some aerospace engineers to Connecticut from other areas which did away with the call for laying off engineers.

Chenevert believed strongly in UTC’s Employee Scholar Program that launched before he took over. The program motivates employees to earn a degree in any field they choose whether or not it is related to their job. UTC pays for tuition, academic fees and books.

Since 1996, more than 38,500 degrees have been earned and there are more than 6,000 employees currently enrolled in the program today.

Recognized for his professional success, Chenevert was named Person of the Year by the Aviation Week and Space Technology magazine in 2011.

Chenevert stepped down as chief executive officer and president of UTC in 2014. He works as the Exclusive Advisor of Merchant Banking Division Goldman Sachs. Chenevert is also on the Board of Directors for the Congressional Medal of Honor Foundation and Chairman of the Yale Cancer Center’s Advisory Board.

Witty And Assertive

Daniel Taub brought the Golden Era to the United Kingdom and the sovereign people of Israel. The diplomat did so during his four-year tenure as the Israeli envoy to the Court of St. James. Questions arose about whether or not the ambassador would deliver in his mandate to represent Israeli interests in a foreign state where he was born and nurtured.

Ambassador Daniel Taub was born in Britain because his family was in exile, as had other many Israeli families during times of strife. However, the Jewish diplomat had kept his Israeli nationality and loyalty in spite of his distance from home.

The Israeli government appointed him to represent his people in the United Kingdom because he had lived there and understood the people of Britain. Read more: Daniel Taub | LinkedIn

The Golden Era describes the four years within which British and Israeli interaction became most productive. Within those four years, bilateral trade between the two sovereign states doubled.

By the fourth and final year of the Taub tenure, which characterized and caused the manifestation of the Golden Era, bilateral trade had reached an all-time high. The Israeli Embassy to Britain confirmed that they believed it was the ambassador’s efforts that got the two countries to make the record of seven billion dollars in bilateral trade.

The embassy also asserted that Daniel Taub had been integral in deliberations that led to the registration of over 300 Israeli businesses in the country as well as discussions that strengthened cultural and educational ties between the two countries.

Daniel Taub first foreshadowed his witty and constructive diplomatic side when he met her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. He humbled himself in her presence but he dressed in traditional Jewish regalia to assert that he had come to the Court of St. James to serve Israeli interests.

Ever since, he respectfully championed for the interests of Israel in Britain. He used the give-take approach which made his deliberations very successful. He would explain how every Israeli interest would serve the interests of Britain in the long run.

When pro-Israeli champions within British institutions of learning came under hostility after Britain’s biggest student body voted to adopt an Israeli boycott, Taub defended them. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.everipedia.com/editor/dtaub/

He demanded of university administrators to shield them from any discrimination and harassment. He also visited Bradford in a seeming defiance after Bradford’s Member of Parliament declared the constituency an ‘Israel free zone.’

However, he explained that his visit was not a provocation but rather a response to numerous invitations by Jewish communities and friends of Israeli to the constituency. According to Taub, the people of Bradford were very receptive of Israel’s friendship unlike their representative had claimed.
