Securus deploys high technology to fulfill Christmas spirit

Securus Technologies has been a nationwide leader in prison services for over two decades. Holding over 700 patents, the company has proven itself a leader not just in deployment of new technologies but as a driver of innovation. Since 2006, Securus has been rolling out and developing on an ongoing basis its innovative video visitation software which allows inmates to have an unprecedented level on face to face contact with their friends and loved ones. Although their video visitation system may look like an over glorified version of Skype, it’s a much more robust and complex system tailored to the specific and demanding needs of the U.S. criminal justice system.

 

 

A lot more than Skype for prison

 

Inmates wonder why they are charged as much as $10 for an hour long video chat with their family. Why should they pay anything when applications like Skype and similar systems are completely free? Aside from the fact that prisons often charge communications companies a flat rate just for the privilege of doing business in that institution, costs that are necessarily passed directly on to the inmates, the reason video visitations cost more is because they require an entire secure-communications infrastructure that is completely invisible to the end user. The fact that this expansive back-end operation isn’t even noticed by users on any either side of a call is testament to the extreme amount of engineering and expertise that went into devising it.

 

All Securus video visitations are 100% secure and encrypted. Outside eavesdropping or hacking into the prison phone system is not possible. Because many U.S. prisons have high profile and even dangerous inmates who may be using the video visitation system, Securus has designed it with military-grade security protocols and extreme target hardness. Additionally, all video calls may be monitored and recorded in real time by authorized prison staff. Video calls are also subject to automated monitoring by Securus’ suite of artificial-intelligence-based anomaly detection software. All this is done to keep prisons, inmates and staff safe from outside attacks or in house threats.

 

Securus also runs a gigantic, dedicated switching center to handle all of its video visitation traffic. This is 100% separate from any telco internet backbones and makes the Securus video visitation network one of the most secure networks in the entire world.

 

When an inmate makes a call on a Securus video visitation phone, he can rest assured that he, his family and the institution in which he is housed has no chance of being compromised by a hacking attempt or abuse of the phone system.

The Research of Sujit Choudhry

Comparative law is the study of different legal systems all over the world in not only democratic societies, but also within societies with a monarchy in not only the past, but also in the present as well as societies that have experienced dictatorships. The goal of this growing field of study is to analyze the different legal systems that come from all over the world and to specifically analyze what legal systems work and what legal systems do not work as well as to analyze why. Comparative law is an industry field of study due to the fact that government laws are not only examined. In addition to government laws, other laws that are rooted to culture as well as to religion are also examined. Those who study comparative law are fascinated with ancient laws that are rooted to religion and that have continued to influence many laws in present day.

Comparative law is a growing field of study and has continued to grow ever since the 18th century when individuals began to interact more through trade as well as the increase in transportation methods at an affordable price. With the many experts of comparative law, one individual in particular stands out against the rest due to not only his hard work, but also based upon his determination to analyze different legal systems. This individual is Sujit Choudhry, an individual with a passion for a globalism and an intent to understand a universal legal system that would work for all individuals despite the country or culture that they come from.

Sujit Choudhry has earned numerous degrees as well as Fellowships that has earned him the title as one of the most highly respected experts on law in the world. As a native Indian, Sujit Choudhry pursued an American university in order to gain a new perspective on the legal systems around the world. As a result of his hard work and as a result of his determination, Mr. Choudhry became the first Indian to be appointed as the dean to one of the top schools in the United States, if not in the world.

Eric Lefkofsky Transforms Online Genius into Real World Problem Solving

Eric Lefkofsky’s experiences as an entrepreneur stretch back to his college days at the University of Michigan. There, he sold carpet in his first ever business. This started in his freshman year. At the University he earned a bachelor of Arts/Science before continuing his education at Law School and receiving the title juris doctor in 1993. Born near Detroit and raised in Michigan, he now lives outside of Chicago, in Glencoe, IL, with his family.

Over his entrepreneurial career, Eric Lefkofsky has co-founded many online start-ups such as Groupon, Uptake, and the venture capital company Lightbank, which funds start-up companies in the Chicago area. While he earned his fortune in the online realm with exciting new companies, he has remained very active in “face to face” community service and focused on improving other people’s lives.

From Lightbank, he co-founded and became CEO of Tempus Health LLC, a company dedicated to funneling the power of technology into the fight for better cancer treatment. It focuses on using technology to create more personalized, data driven treatment options for cancer patients, and enabling physicians to better understand cancerous tumors within a patient’s body. This is in addition to the millions of dollars Lefkofsky has donated for cancer research over the years.

In 2013, Eric and his wife, Liz, became members of “The Giving Pledge,” a pledge made by philanthropic-minded individuals to donate half of their wealth to charitable giving. The Lefkofsky Family Foundation has donated millions of dollars to hospitals and foundations throughout the country to support cancer and brain tumor research and improve patient care.

The Foundation also provides money for causes in education, medicine, human rights, and the arts. Educational endeavors range from local Chicago charities such as Young Chicago Authors to national programs including Teach For America. Medical treatments are another huge focus, as are human rights organizations such as Human Rights Watch, the Anti-Defamation League. His family foundation also funds several museums, theaters, and other cultural venues.

Sam Boraie and Boraie Development: Helping New Brunswick One Building at a Time

Spend enough time in New Jersey, particularly in New Brunswick, and more likely than not, you’ll start hearing the name “Sam Boraie.” Sam Boraie is the Vice President of Boraie Development, an urban real estate development company centered in New Brunswick, New Jersey and expanding across the state. Plenty of articles have been written about the beauty and luxury of Boraie Development’s buildings, but there is more to the company—and more to Boraie himself—than just a nice-looking product: Boraie Development is increasingly becoming an integral part of New Brunswick’s—and New Jersey’s—community revitalization and redevelopment.

For instance, in 2013, Boraie built One Riverview at Rector Street, which was Newark’s first high-rise residential project in more than fifty years. This particular building was especially important to the community: Sam Boraie partnered with international basketball star Shaquille O’Neal, who grew up in Newark, to construct the building. O’Neal joined with Boraie to give back to the community, and One Riverview has certainly been a success in that department: the building is now known as part of an incredible neighborhood transformation.

Newark isn’t the only city that’s been transformed for the better by Boraie’s buildings. In 2015, Boraie Development completed The Aspire, a luxury rental tower in New Brunswick. This building has been praised for its cool, modern look, designed to attract the growing population of young renters in the city—but The Aspire has done more than just attract a new renter market. Located in a neighborhood of trendy restaurants, clubs, and theaters, The Aspire’s new renters have helped revitalize the heart of New Brunswick, further contributing to the city’s redevelopment efforts. Boraie also has new commercial residences on the horizon, promising further redevelopment for the city in the future.

But Boraie hasn’t only helped the community through real estate development. Boraie is also on the Board of Trustees of New Brunswick’s Historical State Theatre, a well-known landmark in the city. The Theatre puts on many events that contribute to the cultural development of New Brunswick, including concerts, plays, ballets, and other shows. Boraie Development specifically has sponsored the State Theatre’s annual Free Summer Movie Series. This series has featured fan-favorite movies like Frozen, E.T., Babe, and Despicable Me 2. But the Free Summer Movie Series is great not just because of its entertainment: it unites the community once a week, allowing people from different backgrounds to come together at one of the community’s most historic venues. And as Boraie’s Vice President has said in the past, the company is “proud to sponsor this wonderful event.”

Finally, Boraie is on the Advisory Board for Elijah’s Promise, a New Brunswick-based charity. As their website’s mission statement says, Elijah’s Promise uses food “as a tool for change,” aiming to end hunger through “promoting good food for all, providing education and job training for the food industry, and creating social enterprise food businesses that help build a better world.” Elijah’s Promise makes its mission statement a reality through a variety of local community programs in New Brunswick, including providing a soup kitchen and community garden. Again, these are things that greatly benefit the community—and are made possible in part by Sam Boraie and his company.

Thor Halvorssen Brings A Modern Touch to The Human Rights Community

Nothing about the career and life of human rights activist and movie producer Thor Halvorssen has been predictable or followed what would be seen as the regular path taken by an activist. The Venezuelan born New York resident has been one of the most prominent activists of recent years known for his willingness to look for new and modern techniques to raise the awareness of the public about the issue of human rights around the globe; Halvorssen has gone so far as to form his own Human Rights Foundation that works to expose the work of dictators and tyrants who have caused problems in closed societies.

One of the major advances made by Thor Halvorssen has been the development of the Oslo Freedom Forum, which has grown to become the most popular and important event on the human rights activism calendar. Halvorssen has looked to change the way we all see the human rights activism community by using his links in the entertainment and media industries to promote the political causes uncovered and raised at the Forum; Halvorssen himself has never shied away from the fact he takes a very different approach to human rights than those undertaken by his many fellow activists, and explained he is willing to work in any way possible to raise the issue of human rights problems within public consciousness.

As a popular and award-winning film producer Thor Halvorssen has worked with some of the most important and relevant names in Hollywood, but has also been willing to expose entertainment industry figures for their links to dictators around the world. The small team of activists Thor Halvorssen maintains as his inner circle at the Human Rights Foundation have all been chosen for their commitment to the cause of human rights, and not because of their political beliefs. Despite the work he completes, Thor is largely uninterested in politics in general and has worked diligently to bring attention to human rights abuses committed by governments from both the right and left of the political spectrum.

David Osio Launches a New Real Estate Mobile App

 

David Osio, the chief executive officer of Davos Real Estate Group, has announced the launch of a new mobile app, Davos Cap Calculator to increase the company’s efficiency. The new mobile app will help clients to estimate the return on their real estate investments.

 

For the last six months, Davos’ Executive Director, Gerard Gonzales has been working round the clock to design and develop the mobile app. The app will allow investors to estimate returns on their investment after deducting expenses. Davos’ mobile app has been developed on the latest technology platforms such as iPhone and Android. Gerard Gonzales says that this is the beginning of a series of complementary apps that will help investors to estimate real estate gains and forward the report to Davos’ agents through an interactive chat.

 

David Osio said that the idea of developing a mobile app came in line with Davos’ objective to increase efficiency and transparency. Davos realized the need to develop a mobile app that allows property experts to guide clients when investing in real estate across the United States. As such, the innovative app allows investors to have a clear financial vision when venturing into the real estate industry. With Davos CAP Calculator, you can estimate the price of a property and determine the property that suits your projected income. Furthermore, the new app has a mortgage calculator that allows clients to assess the value of their mortgage, funding period, and associated interest rate.

 

Besides working on the development of the new mobile app, Davos Real Estate Group commits to providing excellent services to its customers. Currently, Davos is negotiating a new strategic partnership with a global-scale real estate agent to extend their services to the European market.

The Foresight of Billy McFarland

Society marvels at individuals who have great success, but they fail to realize that these individuals are action-takers, a quality that is rare. Billy McFarland is such an action oriented person. He began his first business at the young age of 13 when he formed a business that found customers for a local business.

When he was a freshman computer engineering student at Bucknell University, he founded a company called Spling, which takes URLs of businesses and transforms them into a graphic. This helps to enhance the content for the business’s online presence and helps to brand the company and its product. According to CNBC, Billy McFarland still serves as the CEO of this ongoing business which sports clients such as Universal and Discovery.

At the age of 23, in 2013, McFarland started a New York City-based operation called Magnises. The idea was to form a basis for millennials to get together at their favorite hangouts, restaurants, bars, clubs, concerts, meeting places and special events at a substantial discount.

The annual dues are $250 which entitles each member to “The Black Card.” This card copies the member’s data from his or her debit or credit card and is used to pay the bill at member businesses while simultaneously applying the discount.

The concept has worked so well that at the end of 2015 there were over 10,000 members and still growing. Millennials love to group together and talk about themselves, their accomplishments, and get business contacts. Why not get the discounts and enjoy the ride?

It is not unusual to find a complementary bottle of wine at a restaurant, or preferred seating at an event or concert.

Magnises has been a very popular addition to Manhatten millennial activities, and other metro areas who have heard of the concept are anxious to have the same attraction. Billy McFarland is actively considering expansion and cities in his headlights include Atlanta, Boston, Chicago, Los Angeles and London.

A recent addition of cash to the tune of $3 million hasn’t hurt the cause either. The business model is working exceptionally well, and McFarland feels that the time is right to exploit the concept. Opportunities come and go, and McFarland doesn’t want this one to slip away.
