Why Securus Technology Is Making Headlines

Recently, Securus Technologies announced that a company record was reached when associates gave $345,763 to the United Way 2015 Campaign. The firm was able to exceed their $290,000 target by 19 percent. Richard Smith, the chief executive officer of Securus Technology, applauded the efforts of the associates, which recorded a ten times increase since the campaign started in 2008.
The associates of the firm have opened their wallets and hearts to members of the community in need of education, healthcare and other basic needs. I have since noticed that the contributions made by the United Way include an increase in percentage of the yearly goal, an increase of the contributing associates, a high level of the yearly contributions and an increased number of leadership givers.
Smith said that the real benefactors were those who helped United Way by contributing to help more people. He believes that the contributions will save lives and improve the quality of life for those who need it. It is evident that the contribution says a lot about the character of the associates. I believe that the campaign that is run by Securus Technologies is inspiring and will go a long way in helping many people. Kent Reimann, the development officer of resource at the United Way, agrees with my sentiments and characterizes the campaign run, by the firm, as model one.

The company gives prizes and extra vacation days. It also sponsors breakfast and lunches where the associates discuss the mission of the United Way. United Way helps community members improve healthcare, educational opportunities and to get out of poverty.

How to Create the Perfect High Quality Meal for a Dog

People have a lot of ways to show love for each other. But one of the most classic methods involves the creation of a delicious meal. An elaborate family dinner is one of the classic bonding moments for most people. But there’s one member of the family who’s usually left out. And that’s the family dog. But the Daily Herald offered up a report about ways that this is changing. The article began by recounting the reporters experience touring a new dog food facility. Nothing seemed out of the norm until they reached the end. At that point the two executives stopped to sample the end results of the company’s production process. And that of course meant that they took a big bite of their own dog food. But this isn’t nearly as shocking as one might first imagine. Because that dog food was created with the same loving care that goes into a family dinner. In fact, one of the men even exclaimed that the turkey blend tasted just like Thanksgiving. That’s because this seemingly new trend involves using high quality ingredients that wouldn’t be at all unusual on a human’s plate. But while people are only now hearing about it in the news, this trend has been going on for some time. In fact, one high quality dog food brand called Beneful has been in production since 2001. Many people have been buying it for years without even knowing about just how high a quality food they’ve been providing for the family pet. But it’s easy to see for oneself by simply taking a closer look at Beneful’s offerings on Amazon. Most modern dog food is fairly bland looking. It doesn’t really look like food as people think of it. But it’s clear that this isn’t the case for Beneful. Their dog food is full of meaty chunks of beef, chicken and nutrient packed vegetables. This is of course important when it comes to health and flavor. But it also provides dogs with something that makes their meals as great as that of their owner’s. When a dog bites into Beneful’s offering he can feel the sensation of meaty chunks under his teeth. And that sensation is one of the best and most enjoyable parts of a meal for dogs.

George Soros Scares Investors

George Soros, a billionaire investor says it’s like 2008 all over again. At an economic forum in Sir Lanka, he warned investors to be cautious as financial markets are facing a major crisis.

According to Bloomberg, Soros claimed that one of the reasons is China. The country stock market has declined in recent days to the point where trading halts were implemented.

Chinese yuan’s devaluation and slowing economic growth are major issues, and Soros believes that China needs to make major adjustments. Meanwhile, China’s problems are spilling into the rest of the world.

Slowdown in China’s huge consumer market is likely to affect exporters of manufactured goods (such as Germany), luxury goods producers (Italy, France), as well as numerous nations relying on commodity exports, and then their trading partners.

At present, China is in a long-term shift from manufacturing and investing to services and consumption. And that adjustment may not be easy.

China’s Communist Party has made a pledge to increase yuan’s convertibility in five years and dismantle capital controls. That may not be bad per se, but adds to the uncertainty over the future of the world’s second economy, and soon-to-be number one.

So far this year, equity investors around the world have lost around $2.5 trillion. And the markets haven’t come down yet. The volatility index (VIX) has risen 13% in recent days.

This has been picked up by the financial media and the investors are running scared. Yet, some advisors claim this may be a good time to pick up some shares.

George Soros had issued similar warnings before. In 2011, we warned of a major crisis coming from Greek default. That crisis has been postponed but not resolved. The Europeans are lending money to Greece as if the issues in Greece have been resolved.

They haven’t. If problems in China, Europe, and the Middle East come to the forefront, then we have a receipt for a perfect disaster.

What Soros says is closely watched by many since his track record is astounding. His hedge funds have averaged 20% return from 1969 to 2011. This performance is only slightly behind another great investor, Warren Buffet.

Another difference between the two is that Soros is more of a speculator type. Nevertheless, the man knows financial markets inside out as his $27-billion-dollar fortune made in the markets testifies.

As the financial turmoil unravels, many investors will surely be watching what Soros and other famous investors have to say.

Nicki Minaj Performs in Angola Despite Several Human Rights Organizations Pleading For Her To Decline

Nicki Minaj performed a concert for the Christmas festival in Angola Africa December 19, 2015 despite the begging pleas from the members of the Human Rights Foundation not to accept the performance. The festival was hosted by Unitel, a communications company owned by the family of Angolan President José Eduardo dos Santos. Human Rights Foundation requested she nix the holiday concert because she would be taking money from a dictator whose family had exploited the oil and diamond mining fields to amass their fortune while controlling all branches of the military, the government, and civil society and conducting human rights violations. Even the Kennedy Human Rights group voiced their extreme displeasure at her performance on the president’s behalf.

The Human Rights Foundation is a nonprofit organization aimed at protecting and promoting human rights globally, but with focus specifically on closed societies. It was founded in 2005 by Thor Halvorssen after his mother had been gunned down by Venezuelan government security during a peaceful gathering. Thor Halvorssen began his focus on human rights back in 1989 as a youth by organizing opposition against South Africa’s racial segregation. In 1993, he became involved full time with focus on due process and individual rights after his father became a political prisoner in Venezuela.

Halvorssen is also a film producer for documentaries. The works he has produced include Hammer & Tickle, a humor and satire about Soviet tyranny; The Sugar Babies, a film about human trafficking in the Dominican Republic and Freedom’s Fury, about the uprising against Hungary’s dictatorship in 1956. The Sugar Babies targeted sugar barons who lived in West Palm Beach. It won Best Documentary at the Delray Beach Film Festival and also has been included in Amnesty International’s tour making the film seen worldwide and bringing children sold into slavery to the forefront.
