Advantages of Using Securus Technologies

  • Posted on October 18, 2016 at 11:26 am

If you have never used to Securus it in the past, you are missing out on one of the top prison communication systems in the world. In fact, Securus has one of variety of awards and certifications for those who have been using it because it is totally different from anything you have seen in the past. I have been using Securus myself because a good friend of mine has been in prison for several years. It has totally changed the way that we communicate and it has allowed us to come closer together than anything we had ever used in the past because this is a technology that truly works.


If you feel that it is time for you to step up the technology that you are using for Prison Communication, Securus is definitely an option that you will want to consider for yourself. Not only is this system easy and quick to get, but it is also extremely easy for you to learn because it does not take a lot of time to figure out how to use. Your loved one will also be able to begin using it right away while they are in prison in a safe and secure manner.


There has never been a better time to consider Securus than right now because it is one of the top technology who could possibly use in this type of situation. It is quite affordable for most prison families and can be exactly what you need when trying to boost the way you view video messaging services in the prison system. Be sure to consider visiting the Securus website as well as visiting videos that you can watch on the system itself so that you can see if this is something you can benefit from just like I have in the past.

Raj Fernando’s Reign at Scoutahead

  • Posted on October 13, 2016 at 2:50 pm

While still in school, Fernando would volunteer at the Chicago Mercantile Exchange before his way up as the executive member of the Chicago Board of Trade between 1991 and 2001. He attended Beloit College to pursue a bachelor’s degree in economics and history and later the University of London for advanced studies. While working as a volunteer, Raj acquired extensive entrepreneurial knowledge and experience that helped him establish Chopper Trading in 2002. Under Raj’s helm, Chopper Trading’s addressable market expanded significantly, having traded on the LSE, Eurex, ICAP-Broketek, and CME. In 2015, DRW, a Chicago-based trading firm acquired Chopper Trading. Consequently, Raj Fernando unveiled Scoutahead, the internet startup in 2016 to improve business and professional productivity and growth through advanced and reliable communication systems.

As the CEO and Chairman of Scoutahead, Fernando supports various humanitarian efforts in the United States. He serves on the board of directors for PAWS Chicago and board of trustees of the Chicago Symphony Orchestra. Besides, he supports initiatives of humanitarian organizations such as the Clinton Foundation and Wounded Warriors. In 2011, Raj was appointed to the International Security Advisory Board responsible for advising then Secretary of State, Hillary Clinton. He later stepped down citing extreme instability in the international markets.

Raj Fernando’s tenure at Scoutahead

In the past decade, companies from all over the world have been ditching the traditional annual employee review process and replacing it with informal check-ins between managers and employees. As the CEO of Scoutahead, Raj Fernando commits to developing a platform that would facilitate and improve real-time performance review system. The traditional performance appraisal is no longer relevant for most businesses. It is criticized for restricting innovation, creativity, and not promoting collaboration at the workplace. However, Scoutahead fills the gap by providing a platform that facilitates real-time performance evaluation and enables employees to solicit feedback from their colleagues before their formal review. As such, Scoutahead provides a platform for employees to take charge of their real-time growth. According to Raj Fernando, abandoning performance appraisal helps employees to improve their talent management efforts; therefore, they are allowed to take charge of their growth.

The Wen By Chaz Hair Experiment

  • Posted on October 3, 2016 at 3:32 am

Wen By Chaz Dean is a well known hair care trend by now. We all remember when it swept the nation earlier this past year. It is a conditioner that washes out the oil while moisturizing hair to keep it shiny and healthy. And like most beauty fads or trends, there is a question of whether or not to try it. Emily McClure tried Wen By Chaz for seven days as she wrote about it at http://www.bustle.com/articles/136320-i-used-cleansing-cleansing-conditioner-on-my-fine-hair-heres-what-happened.

On the first day she inspected her Fig Wen hair solution and noticed that the bottle said to apply 10-24 pumps. It seemed a bit ridiculous to her at first but she wanted the full effect. Emily massaged the big glob of conditioner into her hair and made sure to exfoliate her scalp and drag the solution out to the ends of her hair. After washing and drying she noticed an immediate positive change. Since she showered at night it was a bit oily for her taste the next morning, but she washed it again and got beautiful results. The third day she had started to pick up a routine and she repeated as usual. On day four Emily woke up late for work and didn’t notice that her hair was an oil slick until she got there. After her shift she immediately showered and blew it dry and it looked great again.
She now knew that to prevent the oil and protect the shine that she would need to shower in the mornings. On the fifth day she washed it in the morning and styled it. Her curls were soft even after styling with heat. Wen was really starting to work magic. By the sixth and seventh days it was a soft breeze, and her friends even noticed the change too. Her conclusion was that it works great for fine hair if you wash and style in the morning. Check out the Wen hair products on QVC.



The Beauty of Lake Tahoe Skiing and Excellent Resort Options

  • Posted on August 31, 2016 at 7:00 am

Skiing is a favorite winter hobby, and Lake Tahoe is one of the most attractive destinations with the Sierra Mountains providing the perfect background. Lake Tahoe ski resorts are some of the best in the world, and they offer a wide range of vacation options whether traveling alone or as a group. Whether you are looking for something simple or intend to splurge on a world-class accommodation, it is all available.

Something for Everyone

Lake Tahoe offers an abundance of events for snowboarders and skiers that will keep you occupied for a very long time with something different to try out each day. If you are a first-time skier, then there are forgiving slopes that will make the experience one to remember. Any snowboarder or skier will tell you that Lake Tahoe is one destination to try out when planning a ski trip. The mountains and the blue alpine lake give scenery that is worth any spend. With this environment, you get resorts that are fun all year round; whether it’s the snow or the beach.

The Squaw/Alpine Adventure

Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows are two resort options that you can pick from when skiing in Lake Tahoe on squawalpine.com. These are some of the most iconic resorts in the region and for a good reason. Squaw Valley became famous for hosting the 1990 winter Olympics and has been catering to different ski vacation needs. The area provides a few thousand acres that are covered by 270 trails and 42 lifts for skiers. The Squaw Valley village offers a European-inspired style with art galleries, restaurants, and boutiques lining the gorgeous alpine scenery. The terrain offers a little bit of everything for beginners, veterans, or intermediate skiers and snowboarders. Squaw Valley also prides itself on having the longest snowboarding and ski season with its average of 450 inches of snowfall.

Then just across it, there is Alpine Meadows perfect for family vacations. The resort that lies on 2400 acres of skiable terrain that offers wild adventures. It is the epitome of hospitality with lodges designed as chalets and beautiful playgrounds where children can spend time. You will find the resort village between Tahoe City and Truckee.

The two resorts have always been connected with two ski passes separating the two mountains. Even though the two became one resort after the purchase of Alpine Meadows by Squaw Valley Ski Holdings, skiers still have to drive from one to the other. Skiers get to experience a unique feel from each resort and enjoy different ski cultures that characterize any good ski trip.

Adam Goldenberg Building Great Reputation In LA

  • Posted on August 13, 2016 at 12:13 pm

When you list the top young CEOs in Los Angeles Adam Goldenberg is sure to come up. The CEO has seen a lot of success in his years in LA since his original business, Gamer’s Alliance. Goldenberg saw a market that was being ignored in gaming and created that gaming network to fill voids in the market. He grew the company until he sold it in 1999 to Intermix media for an undisclosed amount of money.

His next success came in 2006. This was when he added to his legacy as a great business leader with the company Intelligent Design. Intelligent Design was one of the top internet brand incubators in the country in the mid-2000s. He ran that business until Goldenberg founded his latest success story, JustFab.

JustFab may be his biggest success story yet. This business has a more direct goal compared to some of his previous companies. JustFab is a VIP membership-based company that is dedicated to clothing and fashion. People can join the membership service to gain access to fashion trends and get them at a lower price. The company received over $50 million in funding in the year 2010 alone. Adam Goldenberg says that there are two keys to his success as a leader in business; paying attention to metrics and great hiring practices.


Adam Goldenberg is well-known amongst his staff to pay close attention to the numbers and facts that he is given about any aspect of his company. This could be information regarding how well a certain product is selling. It could also be information about effective a certain marketing platform is. Either way, Goldenberg will heed this information and react to it as quickly as possible. This is a great reflection of the lack of ego that Goldenberg has as a leader at http://www.builtinla.com/2014/01/18/3-la-ceos-you-need-know-now-adam-goldenberg-justfab.


The hot shot CEO also understands that great employees are the cornerstone of any great business on en.wikipedia.org. He is less apt to hire someone based on their educational resume or their work experience and is more likely to look at them as people and just their work ethic and energy about the company that they are working for when looking into hiring someone. He believes that these are the things that cannot be taught when it comes to employees. Everybody starts out with no experience at some point. You can’t teach someone to work hard or be excited about working on a certain project.

Securus: The Time is Now to Stop GTL

  • Posted on August 9, 2016 at 3:25 pm

In life, time is of the essence. You can’t wait around to do something. You have to do something sooner rather than later and the reason for that is that the longer something goes on, the longer it will continue to go on. When it comes to someone doing the wrong thing or behaving in a shady fashion, it can’t go for a second or a minute longer. The time is now to put a stop to them and not allow them to get away with it. The time is now to speak up, stand up, and do something about it. If it goes on for a single day longer, that is one too many days. That is why Securus is taking this so seriously when it comes to GTL, Global Tel-Link, an inmate communications provider.

They have seen the damage they have done to other people and they have seen all of their wrongdoings. Because of this, they are not just going to sit by and do nothing. They are releasing a series of press releases that will highlight a lot of very interesting information that I’m sure GTL wishes people didn’t know about, as they are ripping off customers left and right with no regard for the damage they have caused.

Once these are released, people will read them and the right course of action will be taken. There will be no more hiding and there will be no more shying away from this. They will have to answer for themselves and they will have to do something about it. I’m hoping this is the end of GTL and they pay for their actions. They knew what they were doing and they did it anyways, which makes it all the more disgusting and the all the more revolting in my eyes.

George Soros Revamps His Market Strategy

  • Posted on July 20, 2016 at 2:44 am

The world can be a highly volatile place. This has been particularly true in recent years as many changes have been noted across the world. Governments have fallen in places such as the United Kingdom and Germany. Those leading China seem to be unsure what should be the best way to help their people find peace and prosperity today. This has helped lead to potential instability in the financial market. One person who has been relied on for leadership in making sense of the markets is investor George Soros. Soros is one of the world’s richest men. He has a vast fortune that he has been able to amass as a result of being able to read the markets of the world quite accurately. Those who follow the markets know that they can rely on his judgement and his reading of the way the world’s markets interact with each other.

His Latest Move

As revealed in the Wall Street Journal, Soros has decided to return to the world of market trading. His efforts in recent years have been largely directed towards the promotion of causes that he cares about such as the presidential campaign of Ms. Clinton. It has been noted by market observers that he has chosen to stay out the market in the last few years. This is why many close watchers were startled to see that Soros has made the decision to back to the world of trading. Many people were even more startled to note that George Soros has chosen bearish investments based on his clear expectation that the markets may suffer some reverses. His investments have largely been of a conservative nature. His investments have been in commodities such as gold. Gold is one of the most common places for bearish investors to move to when they are concerned about falling markets. Such investments are often perceived as safe havens that help investors avoid losses.

One Of The World’s Most Respected Investors

A native of Hungary, Soros is noted for his vast understanding of markets around the world. He currently divides his time between many places including the United States and Europe. As a result of his work in this field, he has enjoyed tremendous success and a great deal of respect from those who know that investing can be tricky and confusing. His best known success came from a series of educated guesses about the path of the Pound, the currency used in the United Kingdom. He is currently clearly concerned about the recent decision in Great Britain to leave the European Union and go forward as a potentially isolated place. This may be influencing his decision to invest in gold and gold mining stocks.

Madison Street Capital’s Co-Founder Anthony Marsala Receives Another Industry Award

  • Posted on July 11, 2016 at 3:46 pm

Chicago-based Madison Street Capital is known for putting merger and acquisitions together. Madison Street Capital was co-founded by Charles Botchway and Anthony Marsala. Those two seasoned financial experts saw a need for a company that could put small and medium size companies together and produce a profitable offspring. Marsala as well as Botchway have been honored for their work in the financial industry. But the latest honor goes to Tony Marsala.Tony was recently honored by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony was given the 40 Under Forty Recognition Award for 2015.

Marsala was one of the recipients because he made great strides in categories like business valuations, litigation consulting, financial forensics and expert witness testimony. If those categories sound like legal descriptions they are, according to the Executive Staff of the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. The Executive Staff takes their nomination process seriously, and so does the financial industry. According to the NACVA judges they were overwhelmed with the results that Marsala produced in 2015

Receiving the 40 Under Forty Award is not taken lightly by the nominees. The nominees are a select group of outstanding performers from different industries. The National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts and the Consultants’ Training Institute are rooted in superior quality, excellence, and the pioneering spirit of visionary leaders like Tony Marsala. The 40 Under Forty Recognition Award gives recipients a voice and more opportunity in their perspective industries. Brien K. Jones, the Chief Operating Officer and Executive Vice President for NACVA and the CTI, said the nominees are the best of the best, and they are experts in their industries.

But the Madison Street Capital team knew that Marsala was an expert long before he started receiving awards for his performance in the accounting and financial industry. Marsala is responsible for putting mergers together in all parts of the world. There is a lot of talk about the government putting more restrictions on mergers and acquisitions, but that hasn’t stopped Marsala from putting medium size companies together in a room and working out the details of a merger or an acquisition that could change their future. https://network.axial.net/a/company/madison-street-capital/

Marsala appreciated the recognition by the National Association of Certified Valuators and Analysts. Tony also said that 2016 is shaping up as another excellent year for Madison Street Capital’s M&A division. Even though there is a recession in Europe, Asia, and South America and the economy in the United States is slowing down, the merger and acquisition business is better than ever. Marsala said companies in Europe want to merge with companies in the United States because of the United Kingdom’s decision to leave the European Union.
