Securus Technologies Helping the Fight on Drugs in Jails

When my fellow officers show up for work inside the prison, we have to take certain precautions to make sure that we are safe that day. When we take the time to ensure our safety, that means we make the facility safe for everyone inside our location. This week we were told that we were going to be given a new resource that was going to help us to combat drugs inside the jail, and we could begin utilizing the tool immediately.

 

In the past, to combat problems with drugs inside the jail, we have had to start by doing cell inspections each day to find things the inmates already got their hands on. We have even found that they can get quite creative with the drugs, having them mailed instead of brought in to the visitor center. The visitor center is where the inmates are in contact with guests, so we have to do searches before and after those meetings.

 

Nothing could prepare us for when Securus Technologies was in the jail installing their call monitoring system. The company has 1,000 employees who are working hard to ensure the 2,600 systems in jails across the country operate perfectly. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, gives us his assurance that his team is working towards the objective of making this world safe for all of us.

 

Once the LBS software was up and running, me and my team wanted to see it in action. Instead of us sitting there listening to all the calls, the system monitors them all and identifies unique chatter and alerts officers. Within hours, we heard inmates talking about how to get drugs by us in the visitor center, how they use drugs in the cells at night, and who is selling drugs to build up cash to kick to the gang leaders in the jail.

Micheal Lacey And Jim Larkin’s Influence On Human Rights

Migration has been in existence from the beginning of time. People move from their countries of origin for reasons such as seeking for better financial opportunities, escaping from war, and reuniting with their families.

Some states may limit the rights of migrants, but according to the law and principle on migration, all human beings are entitled to the same human rights protection regardless of their race, origin, or status. Therefore, many individuals and organizations have come up to promote and protect the rights and interest of the migrants.

American civil liberties union-ACLU is an example of the organizations that protect the civil and human rights of migrants. This American group is dedicated to enforcing the civil liberties, rights of immigrants and scrutinizing private and public discrimination against them.

Using litigation and public outreach, ACLU protects the rights and liberties of immigrants. It has been at the front line of almost every major legal struggle on behalf of immigrants rights. They look at laws that deny immigrants to get to the courts and discriminate by race, color origin and nationality.

Immigrants’ soldiers Program-the Pentagon is a recruitment plan that was started in 2009 with the aim of helping non-citizen recruits acquire citizenship. These recruits were to have special skills like language and health that would help in the military. However, it is considering to scrap the program that used to enroll young women and men who have special abilities for United States national security. This move would put legal immigrant in the danger of deportation by the government of the United States. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

The program known as Military Accessions Vital to the National Interest (MAVNI) allowed the immigrants to offer their services in the United States armed force and also apply if they had abilities such as special knowledge in medical training.The Lacey and Larkin fund has been following the issues and writing about them because immigrants are assets to the success and competence of the U.S Armed forces.

Another group is Coalition for Human Immigrants Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA), which is an organization advocating for the rights of immigrants. Its first foundation was with the primary intention to help educate immigrants about the immigration acts. It provided the immigrants with the resources and knowledge to leadership advancement, development, mobility, and organization. It is also one of the oldest advocate for immigrants rights in Los Angeles.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera fund supports groups that advocate for civil, human rights, migrants rights, and freedom of speech throughout Arizona. The $3.75 million settlement from their arrest by a county sheriff by the name Joe Arpaio, was dedicated to assisting organizations that support human rights.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were arrested in the middle of the night on October 18, 2017, for unveiling the existence of grand jury proceedings involving this particular sheriff. The jury demanded the identity of persons who read the New Times stories online concerning him. Aware of their rights, they sued the county of Maricopa and won a settlement deal.

How Does the Founder of Lime Crime Start Her Day?

If you are a fan of Lime Crime founder, Doe Deere, you may know a lot about her already. But do you know how she starts her day? Did you know that celebrities have morning routines just like the rest of us? This is definitely true. Perhaps some of Ms. Deere’s morning rituals are much like yours. Let us find out now. Keep reading.

 

In the first place she insists on getting nine hours of sound sleep each night. Of course, every person is different. But do you know that a good night’s rest is a key factor to having clear skin? Doe Deere swears by this statement. Without the use of an alarm clock, Ms. Deere wakes up at 8:30 AM every day. Being that she is a morning person, waking up is a breeze for her. She truly enjoys a healthy breakfast in her very own kitchen as she gazes out the window. Along with that, Ms. Deere drinks a full glass of water. She feels it is critical to stay hydrated, especially for those folks who live in a dry climate as she does.

 

Did we neglect to mention that, after waking up and before breakfast, Doe Deere does an array of stretches? Yes, she does. Although not an athletic person by any means, she feels it is very important to start the day with a stretching routine of varying exercises. If you begin daily stretching sessions of your own, be sure to include at least one exercise for every part of your body. You want to get your entire body loose, not merely a couple of parts.

 

The first thing Doe does, following her stretches and breakfast, is to check the calendar on her phone. Then she contacts her staff and has an internal chat with them. Ms. Deere likes to know exactly what is happening before she arrives at her office. Then she responds to her emails and checks out Instagram (which is always open on her phone.) Once finished with that, Doe prefers to keep her mornings clear of digital technology. She would rather concentrate on being creative.

 

Doe Deere continues her morning by listening to Abbey Road, which is her favorite Beatles album. Then she washes her face and proceeds to apply her make-up. She gets most of her cosmetics from her very own Lime Crime line. Depending on how good she needs to look during the day, Doe either takes fifteen minutes or up to a full hour to put on all the make-up. Ms. Deere likes to shower the night before instead of that morning. Upon finishing the cosmetic application it is time to style her hair. She uses a curling wand to get those infamous luscious waves in her hair. Then it is off to tackle the rest of her day.

 

Before leaving for work, Doe Deere likes to enjoy time with her two cuddly Persian cats. They give her so much love and pleasure. Then she typically gets to her office by noon and socializes with her staff. Together they will see that the rest of the day is productive and fruitful.

Jeremy Goldstein, the Expert Compensation Layer

Whether you are looking a lawyer for a criminal matter, child custody conflict, a landlord-tenant dispute or you simply want to write a will; New Yorkers have a convenient and low-pressure way of finding one online. This is through a portal launched by the New York Service (LRIS). However, if you are not comfortable with this, you can still continue using the LRIS telephone service.

 

The portal only lists credible lawyers that have been vetted by the New York State Bar Association – the entity that partnered with legal.io for this project.

 

So How Does the Service Work?

An individual starts by visiting the URL: https://nysbalris.legal.io and fills out a form explaining their legal issue. The state bar then reviews the questionnaire and matches the individual with the most nearby attorney. In case the person lives in a county with a local lawyer referral service, the state forwards the request to the most convenient county bar association.

 

Referrals are free but if there is consultation involved between the client and the lawyer, charges are $35 for a 30-minute session; this is, however, subject to exceptions under special circumstances like personal injury or medical malpractice. From here, additional fees is charged for any other services offered to the client. This service has enabled lawyers to serve more clients this way.

 

 

Jeremy L. Goldstein works at L Goldstein & Associations as a partner. The firm specializes in advising management teams, CEOs and compensation committees in executive compensation and corporate governance matters.

 

Before this, Jeremy was a partner at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen & Katz law firm. Currently, Jeremy chairs the Mergers & Acquisition Subcommittee, a section of the American Bar Association Business.

George Soros: The Open Society Foundations

George Soros is a leading philanthropist in the world. When the Forbes Magazine published that George Soros has spent more than $12 billion towards philanthropy, the world said that he had spent more than half of his wealth to the poor people. He has also bankrolled numerous political movements aimed at enriching the political will and participation of the people. He has also used these funding to support organizations and individuals across the world to fight against political discrimination. George Soros has also used his money to help the poor and marginalized groups to gain transparency and freedom for expression. George Soros also created the Open Society Foundations to promote equality and justice in all communities in the world. Moreover, the organization also advocates for an accountable government where the truth is not within reach of few people. Read more about George’s life story at biography.com.

The charitable giving is also focused on those facing the worst form of discrimination in the world. The foundation also works to help the people realize who they are and what they do. He has also supported many groups representing the Roma People in Europe. The Roma people were the most discriminated people in the region. The foundation is also advocating for the rights of the sex workers, the distinguished societies, drug users, and the LGBTI people.

George Soros is also one of the victims of such discrimination. For this reason, he has more than enough experience in this discrimination. When he was still living in Hungary, his family suffered numerous threats to distinction. For this reason, they went on to develop high-end capabilities in a manner that is not paralleled in the world. The family survived by securing false identities through the corrupt government to escape the Nazi occupation. The Nazi occupation was the worst form of discrimination ever experienced in the life of George Soros. Because he was sharp, he worked hard to evade his family from the country. He landed in London. For this reason, he worked at a local railway hotel as a waiter. He raised enough money to pay for his school fees at the London School of Business. He studied and graduated with the highest honors. For this reason, he found his way to the United States. Learn more on Discover the Networks about George Soros.

When he was in New York, he worked for two local hedge fund companies as their strategists. He worked hard to become a high-end professional in this field. Before he made them rich, he decided to found his Quantum Fund. This company worked to predict the risky currencies. He also amassed his wealth through the risky trades. During the peak of his career, he predicted that the British pound would fall. For this reason, he betted against the British pound with more than $2 billion.
