ConnectUs by Securus Is Revolutionary, And Needed More Than Ever

Correctional facilities are overcrowded today, pure and simple. This overcrowding leads to an overabundance of paperwork that takes many man hours to complete. Hundreds of millions of dollars are spent every year which could have been saved with simple technological upgrades. Until now, there’s been no cohesive way to recoup that loss, but Securus Technologies has just released a new platform that will very likely change that for the better.

Established in 1986, Securus Technologies has provided information technology solutions for law enforcement and surrounding areas over thirty years. Since its inception in the 80s, Securus has expanded to provide help to over 2,600 corrective facilities. Among those facilities they cater to some 1.2 million inmates every year. Securus has also recently received an A+ rating with the Better Business Bureau; and with thirty years’ successful, useful service, it’s easy to see why they deserve every bit of it.

The most recent innovation of Securus is ConnectUs Automated Forms. This platform provides features and applications of almost unlimited variety, and is certainly more all-encompassing than any options that have ever been available to incarcerated individuals. But with that exceptional spread of features comes great security responsibility. Securus understands this, and so has given customizability and control to the administrators of their new platform per facility. Specific limitations can be set which ensure that no inmate has access privileges they should not, and that they are accessing the information they need to at the right time of day in the correctional facility’s regular cycle of things.

Without the need to file and categorize physical paperwork, correctional facilities can devote the expanded budget to more rehabilitative measures of correction over time. Money is saved, inmates are treated with greater humanity than they could have been before, and Securus is able to look to the next big innovation. Indeed, ConnectUs is revolutionary.

ClassDojo’s App Redefining School Communications

ClassDojo has penetrated the classroom walls and revolutionized the way teachers, students and parents engage with each other.

 

ClassDojo has developed an app that seeks to cut the time a parent spends in a meeting with teachers. It also seeks to minimize the time teachers spend seeking information about the performance, both academic and behavioral, of specific students.

 

 The ClassDojo app was developed by a tech developer from Wales that came to America on a tourist visa. He met up with the co-founder and begun their work in Pal Alto in the summer of 2011. The app was developed from scratch in a small apartment where they were sleeping and working from opposite corners.

 

Their Silicon Valley dream came alive when they received money from investors based on the app’s valuations. The company reports that there are millions of people using the app with the exact number being a trade secret. The company reports that there are times they experienced over 500000 downloads in a day.

 

The app is credited with harmonizing the relationship between teachers and students as they can constantly interact with each other. This is because the app offers a communication platform where the teachers and parents can discuss the performance of a student without having to schedule meetings.

 

The app has been mainly developed as a social media site where school groups can be created and allocated a private area. The teachers can then post the work of students as a video clip or an image on the specific school group. Parents can then view the students’ performance and even react to it if they are amused.

 

The app also features a tool that helps parents to monitor the behavior of their children. The tool works in cooperation with teachers so that if a student behaves well, the teacher updates the system by giving him or her credits. If the student behaves badly, then the teacher reacts by taking away credits.

 

By being able to credit or discredit a student based on performance, the teacher can maintain a rating for each student. Parents, on the other hand, can look up the teacher’s ratings of their children and be able to know if they are progressing in the right direction.

 

The App, therefore, can be said to create a harmonized community of teachers, students, and parents that work together to create a positive culture in the classroom and at home. It has helped inspire a ground-up change of the way teachers, students and parents engage.

Dr. Waldne Makes a Name and Then Comes Home

The people that succeed in their field are actually small in number. However, the amount of people that actually influence their field in a very powerful way are even fewer. Dr. Jennifer Walden is one of those that have actually made a huge influence in her field. There is a way that she has managed to do that. This is in being very passionate about what she is. Because she is so passionate about cosmetic surgery, she has taken the time to study and do her own research in order to find methods that make the procedure a lot better for the patients.

 

She has studied in Austin and then moved to New York in order to study at the Manhattan location for cosmetic surgery. She has then went on after her fellowship to start her own practice in New York. She has shown so much innovation that she has found herself serving on the board of directors of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery. She is in fact one of the women that have been on the board of directors as of yet. She has won plenty of awards as a surgeon and even got published as an author.

 

After a while, Walden has decided to return home to Austin so that she could be with her family. She has opened up an office in Austin Texas so that she can bring her methods and her practices to her hometown. She is also better able to raise her children while she is working as a cosmetic surgeon. One of the most important aspects of her is that she is a mother. As a mother, she will be able to raise her children and teach them how to succeed in whatever field that they choose. It takes more than just doing the bare minimum. One has to be willing to go above and beyond.

New Products

The Proper Relationship between a Business and Reviews

The online reputation of a company is one of the most important aspects of business to cultivate. It is extremely important to maintain a positive presence on major social media outlets. One or two bad reviews could make the difference between a thriving company a one that is on the verge of collapse. Unfortunately, there is a lot of misinformation on proper business practice when it comes to online reputation management. Using these tips, however, you can ensure that you will both abide by proper business ethics and maintain a positive online presence.
First of all, it is important for you to remind your customers that honest reviews are necessary for a business to properly operate. According to website OnlineReputationReviews.com, by asking them to leave an online review, you will bolster the amount of positive internet reviews you have. Usually, customers and clients will neglect to leave a review of a positive experience, but in the event of a negative one, they will not hesitate. By reminding all customers to leave a review, you will balance out the occasional negative review that is left. In addition, requesting reviews from clients will show them that you are genuinely interested in their opinion and feedback of your company or business.

The next important note is to never pay for positive reviews. An unrealistic amount of positive reviews for your company will seem fake and unprofessional. No company is going to have 500 5-star reviews as their only feedback. In addition, too many unrealistic reviews may serve to highlight the negative reviews that are left by actual clients. It will be obvious to potential clients if you have bought reviews. Buying reviews can be even more damaging to your reputation than honest negative reviews. At the very least, honest negative reviews show that you are genuinely interested in clients and their opinions. Fake reviews give the appearance that you are solely interested in the money, not the business.

Overall, online reputation management through review sites like Yelp! and Google Business are important to monitor. Encouraging realistic and professional reviews are a good idea, while paying is not.

Soros Wants Europe to Spend More on Aid

George Soros, a multi-billionaire hedge fund manager and a social activist, states that Ukraine needs financial aid. And so does the Wall Street Journal. This publication claims that Ukraine deserves debt relief. The Russian aggression against the former Soviet republic has taken a toll, and its debt of $19 billion isn’t sustainable.

Soros claims that the European Union nations should help Ukraine. However, this is without consideration to the fact that these countries have even bigger debts than Ukraine. In fact, much bigger.

The wealthy financier agrees, however, that the EU has problems. Indeed, he lists five of them: the structural issues with Euro, unresolved Greek debt, migration from the Middle East and sub-Saharan Africa, Brexit, and Ukraine. To that we can add looming banking crisis in Italy.

George Soros’ response is to have the European nations spend more of their taxpayers’ money. He even proposed that Europe accepts millions of migrants and fully supports them financially for years.

The Greatest Investors: George Soros

George Soros | Open Society Foundations (OSF)

He agrees that not all the crises can be resolved at once. Some of them should be given priority. Ukraine, he states, should be handled first. One of the reasons for it is to stop Putin’s expansion.

Having prosperous Ukraine would be in the interest of Europe, the 86-year old Soros argues. He’s also familiar with the country as he has his foundations working there. In fact, his foundations operate in more than 100 countries and seek to take pressure on local governments to pursue liberal agendas.

George Soros was born to a Jewish family in Hungary. He was educated in the United Kingdom and then he immigrated to America where he made his billions speculating in the financial markets. With his superior performance, Soros made billions of dollars for himself and his investors. Over several decades, he has proven to be among the finest investors in the world.

Burying Bad Articles Has Never Been Easier

When you think about the world of an online presence and all of the possibilities that come along with it, you know it is a double edged sword. Not only are individuals able to see anything and everything that they would like to about you with respect to your history, contact information, and even your points of view, but anyone can locate you as well. This can be seen as either a convenient means of communication in the current world, or it can be seen as an invasion of privacy where people do not get to stay off of the grid. Regardless of the reasoning, you may just want to look into pushing your personal information out of the public spotlight. The key to doing so is finding a company like Bury Bad Articles. https://moz.com/blog/new-data-reveals-67-of-consumers-are-influenced-by-online-reviews

The good thing about Google, Yahoo, Bing and more is that as search engines continue to get better, they literally crawl every page and every corner of the web. However, the problem with this is that if they literally crawl each and every page, then the second a piece of new information is uploaded to the online world, there is a good chance it is going to be there for a long time. Throw in the fact that your online presence will be more or less permanent because of the fact that these same search engines index the information, and you are at a serious privacy disadvantage if you don’t have a plan.

When you look to the power of Bury Bad Articles, then you have the best possible plan in place. While it may be more than difficult to try and actually remove the bad articles, negative news, or private information about you, the one thing that you can do easily and quickly is to work with an organization such as Bury Bad Articles in order to push the negative or unwanted information down in the search results. You can do this simply by using the fully proven and utilized techniques that Bury Bad Articles has, and in no time you can reclaim your privacy on the internet.
