Securus Monitoring Helps to Solve Crimes

For over ten years, one of the leading providers of security and communications products and services to correctional facilities across the country has been Securus Technologies. Securus Technologies, which is based out of Dallas, Texas, currently provides services or products to over 1,000 facilities located nationwide. The company is likely best known for their video visitation software and product.

 

While the video visitation software and product was designed to provide inmates, family members, and other parties with a convenient way to communicate, it has had other benefits as well. Most facilities have noted a decline in the amount of crime and onsite issues that can come with in-person visitation. Another unexpected benefit of the video visitation service is the fact that it has been able to help solve and prevent crimes inside and outside of the prison.

 

Whenever a phone or video visitation call is made between an inmate and another party, both parties are required to approve a recording of the conversation. Securus Technologies then offers an additional service in which they will monitor these call for the facilities and track any suspicious activity. If Securus Technologies notices that there is some suspicious conversations taking place, which could indicate a crime, they are able to turn the tape over to the facility who is able to handle the case from that point.

 

Thus far, facilities across the country have stated that they have been able to use the recordings to help solve crimes and prevent future crimes for occurring. These have included both crimes located inside and outside of the correctional facility. Securus Technologies is able to provide this service out of their new data center, customer service, and monitoring facility that they built in Dallas. This new center has greatly supported the company’s recent expansion of additional services as well.

 

How EOS Beat Chapstick in the Lip Balm Game

EOS is now the second-leading lip balm company in the U.S., just under Burt’s Bees. Chapstick and Blistex round out the top four balms. Just a few years ago, no one knew the EOS name. Maybe that’s because the brand has been here for just seven short years. Now, the brand is bigger than Chapstick, selling over one-million lip balms every week.

It isn’t often that a brand accomplishes such an amazing feat, especially in such a short period of time. But, Evolution of Smooth managed to cause hysteria and sweep the rug right from under Chapstick. There are many reasons that EOS outdid the Chapstick brand.

First, the brand listens. When EOS put their lip balm on their market, it was at a time when many consumers were concerned with the harmful ingredients found inside of their beauty products. EOS lip balm designed an all-natural, parabens-free lip balm that eased he minds of consumers.

Second, EOS (https://evolutionofsmooth.com/lip-balm.html) added trend to the lip balm world. The cylinder Chapstick tubes were anything but fun, but the opposite is true of the uniquely-shaped orbs of EOS lip balm. The orbs are easy-to carry, and have an exciting shape you’ll love using.

EOS flavors also add to the fun. Chapstick only recently designed a cherry lip balm. Before the cherry flavor, consumers had only a flavorless and boring balm. EOS has three lip balm lines, each with great flavors that make using lip balm far more fun. The flavor choices include Summer Fruit, Strawberry Sorbet, Sweet Mint, Vanilla Bean, and several others.

There is little wonder why EOS overcame amazing challenges and became one of the biggest lip balm brands in the country. If you’ve not already discovered the amazement of Evolution of Smooth, you’re missing out on an amazing product.

Lime Crime’s Doe Deere Explains Her Own Views On Entrepreneurship

Just what does it mean to become an entrepreneur in the 21st century? This is a question that many individuals are looking to answer from those seeking to establish their own company to others who already run profitable businesses and want to stay at the top of their industry. Doe Deere is an entrepreneur who has made a major splash in the cosmetics industry in a short space of time after she quickly understood the need to embrace the opportunities offered by latest technologies in terms of selling products and maintaining the highest levels of customers service.

 

In 2008, the former musician decided to use her New York based fashion education to launch her own range of individual clothing designs she decided to sell via an Online marketplace; these first steps would form the basis of the LimeCrime brand Deere has now turned into one of the fastest growing cosmetics brands in the world.

 

The entire LimeCrime brand is based around the individual style choices made by Doe Deere and her many social media followers who use their own Instagram accounts to show off how they have used the vibrant colors of the LimeCrime cosmetics line to create individual looks. Born in Russia, Doe Deere brings a sense of whimsy and the fairy tale mythology to her cosmetics designs and clothes she wears, which do not cling rigidly to the fashion rules laid down by the major fashion houses she feels often stunt the individual personalities of people in a way she does not wish for herself.

 

Taking her own path is something Doe Deere has always been willing to do; when shifting the focus of LimeCrime away from clothing towards cosmetics Deere wished to keep her business as an Online sales option, which met with derision from established cosmetics executives who explained it was impossible to sell makeup Online. Believing in herself and her ideas, Deere stuck to her guns and has become an innovator in new ways of allowing samples to be used by her customers. Although her passion remains in the creation of new cosmetics for her brand, Doe Deere understands she must have an all round understanding of the business if she is to continue with the success she has so far achieved.

The Work of George Soros And The Open Society Foundations Continues To Evolve

The philanthropic work of the hedge fund billionaire George Soros has recently been focused on providing funding for those who feel they have not been included in what is deemed a traditional society. Soros has been a major supporter of the open society philosophical theory, which he adapted to form the name of his Open Society Foundations after being exposed to the theory during his time as a student at the London School of Economics. George Soros has always felt he has a close personal link to those who he feels have faced being pushed to the boundaries of society; the Soros family was forced to hide their Jewish faith from the occupying Nazi forces in his native Hungary during World War II; the family was also oppressed by the arrival of Communism in Hungary following World War II that prompted George Soros to take a refugee journey that would take him to London and later New York, according to the Open Society Foundations.

Read this story about George at Politico.com

By 2017, George Soros was reported by Forbes to have built a personal fortune of more than $25 billion and had given away more than $12 billion to good causes through personal philanthropy and through his own Open Society Foundations. During the same period of time Soros has become a major critic of President Donald Trump and backed many Democrat candidates and causes that have been chosen as they reflect the beliefs of the work George Soros hopes to complete. One of the major causes undertaken by Soros in the 21st century has been the bid to legalize marijuana across the globe as he feels the global war on drugs has been more damaging than it has assisted over the last century; the U.S. citizen is also known as a prominent supporter of same sex marriage rights across the world.

Providing opportunities for people who may have their options limited is not only part of the work completed in a philanthropic sense by George Soros, but is also seen as part of his everyday work life after he employed the financial expert Dawn Fitzpatrick to run his hedge fund company and become one of the most powerful women on the financial markets. The rights of all people to achieve as much as possible in their lives is something George Soros cares deeply about and is reflected in his work reported by the Open Society Foundations to aid the LGBT community across the planet; Soros works with many different people and groups outside his own foundations to provide rights to those in closed societies including providing funds for the European Council for Foreign Relations and the Institute for New Economic Thinking.

Reasons That Technology Is Great According To Jason Hope

When people think about technology, they think about a ton of different features. However, they are not always the features of necessity or benefits. Often times, people think about the more entertaining features. After all, technology makes it so that people can access videos and listen to music. They can also enjoy some of the greatest forms of entertainment from some really good sound sources.

Also, technology has made it so people can have large and full sound in various venues which include their very own homes. All of this is good and fun, but when one asks Jason Hope about technology, he is not thinking about all of these bells and whistles.

When Jason thinks about technology, he is thinking about the different things that it has made easier for humans. He thinks about how technology makes it easier for humans to wash clothes as opposed to having to hand wash. Other things that come to mind is how it is easier to prepare food because of technology. People no longer need to gather rocks and wood to start a fire. One of his favorite aspects of technology is the internet. It is not because it has access to different forms of entertainment. It is more because that internet has made it easier for people to work from home when they find the right opportunities.

Speaking of internet, Jason Hope is looking at the Internet of Things. This is the next great advancement that he is pushing because there is a lot of advantages that it could bring people. This is especially the case when it comes to the safety of society. Jason Hope has also seen how the Internet of Things could actually save a lot of money for the economy. If there is one thing that the world needs, it is cost effectiveness.

Can Wen Change Your Hair After Just 7 Days?

If you’ve been thinking about trying new products for your hair that are all-natural and free of potentially harmful chemicals, you may want to give Wen a try. This hair care line was created by Chaz Dean, http://chazdean.com/, and contains a variety of essential oils and plant extracts that can make the hair healthier, shinier and thicker.

Emily McClure from Bustle tried the Fig conditioner from Wen for a full week. If you’re thinking of trying Wen for yourself, her review of the product could prove helpful.

After using the conditioner for only one day, McClure stated that her hair was healthier and felt thicker. As the week progressed, she felt that her hair was becoming less frizzy. However, when she used heat to style her hair, she found that her curls fell faster than usual.

During the week, McClure noticed that her hair had more volume, and her friends on Facebook even noticed that her hair was shinier after using the conditioner. By the last day of the experiment, McClure was used to her hair falling slightly during the day, but was satisfied with the way that Wen moisturized her hair and reduced friskiness. She says she’d recommend the conditioner to women with naturally thin hair, or women who style their hair daily.
