Securus Gives Louisiana State Prison Inmates a Reason to Smile In the Face of Adversity

No one really knows when a disaster will strike. When it does, however, it comes with so much anxiety and fear for our loved ones. At such times, communication takes prominence over most other necessities.


I give Securus Technologies a thumbs-up for yet again putting the interests of incarcerated people and their loved ones before everything else. Although unfortunate, the recent floods in Louisiana State have shown all of us who the real friends of inmates are. Thanks to the leader in provision of technological solutions to the justice and correction service, people who have their friends or relatives incarcerated at Louisiana State Prison can keep in touch with them – all for free.


Keeping In Touch Everyday


Every inmate will get a chance to talk with loved ones, every day for a week since the first day of September 2016. Therefore, they will get a chance to catch up and know how everyone is fairing on both sides of the line and remove any anxiety and stress. This proves Securus’ dedication in ensuring comfort and peace of mind for inmates and their kin through one of the most effective means—communication.


Further Assistance


The communication technologies company will be spending over $300,000 in connecting the free calls. As if that’s enough, the Louisiana Department of Corrections will receive another $50,000 which will be channeled into the inmates welfare funds. If that is not proof enough for selfless service, then I am not sure what is.


Securus is not new to helping incarcerated people escape their plight. Since it was founded in 1986, the Dallas-based company has provided communications solutions services to more than 2,600 correction centers throughout the United States. It also has investment in communication technologies, acquisitions, and patents worth over $600 million.

Keith Mann Invests in Education with Uncommon Schools in New York City

As a Co-Founder of Dynamic Search Partners, Keith Mann knows that a proper education is the foundation for success. Keith Mann also understands that education is an opportunity not always afforded to everyone, which is why the entrepreneur and his wife, Keely recently launched a new scholarship for graduates from Uncommon Schools, a network that’s committed to the management of public schools across three states.

The aim of Uncommon Schools is to bridge the success gap that exists for students from low income families and foster success that ultimately leads to graduation from college. The aim of this scholarship is to provide one promising student from an Uncommon Schools high school with some financial assistance as they prepare to venture into the next exciting chapter of their life.

In order to apply for the scholarship, students were asked to write a 1,000-word essay. The topic: how earning a college degree will contribute to reaching their professional goals. Identifying potentially strong leaders is a skill that Keith Mann has cultivated over his years with Dynamic Search Partners, and this essay asked those who applied for the scholarship to demonstrate some of the traits that Mann seeks on a day-to-day basis, further preparing applicants to hone their focus as they prepare to enter college.

Of course, Keith Mann’s involvement with Uncommon Schools is nothing new. In March of 2015, Mann hosted a fundraiser for Uncommon Schools at the Standard Hotel Beer Garden, which was able to generate over $22,000 for the organization. This newest endeavor for Uncommon Schools takes Mann’s commitment towards education and providing opportunity to those who are brave enough to seek it to the next level.

Deputy Assemblyman José Manuel González Is Trying To Get Help For Venezuela

Venezuela is in serious trouble. The country with the richest oil reserves in the world has no money. Citibank just closed the Central Bank of Venezuela’s account, so Nicolas Maduro and his socialist dictatorship are all alone, and it appears Maduro wants to keep it that way, according to the current Deputy of the National Assembly in the state of Guárico, José Manuel González. José Manuel González has been trying to get the attention of other assemblymen in other states that support Maduro, and he has exhausted his political clout in the process. Maduro has put up roadblocks for José Manuel González, and other assemblymen that do want to get Maduro out of office as soon as possible. There is a petition circulating in the country that is calling for a recall, but the government is dragging their feet, and missing deadlines. The government is saying that the opposition coalition, of which José Manuel González is part of, should be disqualified as a political party.

José Manuel González is not only a state assemblyman, but he is also an agriculture businessman. He is well-liked in his state, and his followers are standing behind him as he tries to help remove Maduro from office. Maduro has done little to help the country since he took office after the death of Hugo Chavez in 2013. According to José Manuel González, Maduro was not equipped to lead the country in good times, and in the current bad times, his policies are making things worse. González said his state, Guárico, was once a prosperous farming area, but Maduro put an end to that when he confiscated farms. Those farms are not producing food anymore. González told the National Assembly that the drop in oil prices didn’t create the situation in Venezuela, Maduro’s policies and lack of leadership did.

González is trying to get help from Colombia and Brazil, but so far Maduro has refused to listen. Instead of asking for help, he ordered the military to control the ports and to distribute food. Venezuela has become a socialist dictatorship and military state. But González believes help will come. He is not stopping his quest to remove Maduro from office, and millions of people are behind him in that endeavor.

The Benefits Of Using Visual Search Technology


Imagine if you could identify virtually any product just from a picture of it. Well, now that is possible, if you have a product recognition app on your smartphone. Various companies have begun to make apps that allow for the identification of products based on a picture. The app recognizes the image, and then it provides the user with not only the name of the product but information about it. This information can help you to determine whether or not the product is of high quality, and it can help you to compare the product to other brands of similar products.

The salesperson for a product will be likely to give you biased information about it, because they are trying to sell the item. However, in the past, the salesperson may have been the only source of information regarding the item. Now, thanks to product recognition apps, this never has to be the case. With unbiased information, it is easier to make an informed decision about whether or not to purchase an item.

Furthermore, having this app can prevent you from being gouged by an unscrupulous salesperson. If you notice that the product is being priced higher than the typical price given by your product recognition app, you can be pretty sure that you aren’t getting a good deal on it. For business owners, this can help you to protect your bottom line.

While there are many different product recognition apps that you can get nowadays, there is a provider of this app that has an extraordinary reputation. Slyce is a very well known provider of this product recognition technology, and their apps can help you to identify a truly extraordinary number of products. The app provided by this company has been rated very highly by those that have used it, and there are many good reviews of their product.

The Future of New York Shared Office Spaces


It is a proven fact that people work better in coworking spaces. These spaces allow for many people to be working and sharing information in close proximity such as a communal setting. Researchers have long suspected this to be the case, and it has finally been proven that people really do feel and work better in a shared office space. When it comes to these shared spaces, people feel that their work is really being seen by others and it allows them to witness first hand the impact that their actions are having. The isolated world of a cubicle or traditional office setting really separates people from their products and that is not conducive to a working environment.

Most shared workplaces mix people of different backgrounds and jobs so that there is little to no competition between people for the same positions, promotions, or titles. Because of this, it is easier to lend a hand to a coworker who may be struggling, without worrying that your job could be on the line. This creates a very strong feeling of community that can really help with productivity. When someone is working from home, they are completely detached from the work they are doing and the people that they are working with. But working in a shared office space allows them to create their community of trust and assistance that allows each person’s individual talents to shine.

A shared work place gives people more control. When they have more control they feel more satisfied with their job because there is less rigidity in their position. These types of offices often hold events and training sessions and other less strict meetings that allow the different people working in the office to meet and interact in different settings. This enhances the feeling of community and gets people excited about upcoming projects and deadlines.

WorkVille NYC utilizes the coworking model to provide Manhattan offices for rent. With large windows and bright modern interiors, you might think that this was a luxury hotel, but really it is your office space. WorkVille NYC is amazing at creating beautiful offices that people really love to work in. They try to offer their workers many different places to work such as cafes, terraces, and many different types of lounge areas. This creates a welcome environment that makes people want to be productive and enthusiastic about their work. And the fresh coffee around the clock definitely adds to the positive experience.
