A New Acquisition for a Better Business

GovPayNey is a company that specializes in different forms of online payments for customers who wish to use their services. For such a simple company this is a big deal, as everyone is looking for different ways to make payments online. Govpaynet is so flexible in the options that they possess, such as PayPal, Bitcoin, and more traditional forms of payment choices That they have grabbed the attention of a selection of different companies. Securus Technologies, the information technology giant, is one of those companies that had their eyes on GovPayNet. Instead of waiting around for something to happen they decided to go ahead and purchase the company and a large merger movement. This acquisition will assist Securus Technologies in one of the issues that they are currently facing, with customers paying their monthly bills on time. Securus Technologies supports generally customers who are inmates in the prison system, with many of them having families that are low income. Making monthly payments on time using either a credit card or a checking account is difficult for them to do. Hopefully, with the acquisition of GovPayNet this process will become much easier.

 

Securus Technologies customer I’ve always been loyal to the company. They realize that Securus offers on services that other companies would just turn their noses at. They’re not only a security and Communications company, they are also a humanitarian company for the work that they do. This new merger with GovPayNet is great news for these people, as it shows them once again that Securus Technologies has their back in these hard times. It is uncertain when the buyout will officially take effect and when GovPayNet services will become available on Securus websites.

Boraie Development Saves the City

Often it is only one person that needs to be the hero. In the case of Omar Boraie, the founder, and leader of Boraie Development, this is certainly true. It was because of his hard and diligent work that the alliance was formed that was needed to save New Brunswick, New Jersey. He is the reason that New Brunswick is thriving today.

 

Omar Boraie is known for his tender heart, and he has spread the message of compassion throughout his real estate organization. He taught his real estate company to show compassion for New Brunswick. It was their goal to help the city become as influential as any of the European cities which are known to be strong economic centers. To help New Brunswick achieve such status took of Omar 40 years but after working for so long, his vision is now reality.

 

Boraie Development reports that they have invested $150 million into New Brunswick, New Jersey. This money has been used to build residential and commercial sectors so that businesses and families could relocate to the city. NJbiz.com states that Omar Boraie kept none of the profit from these buildings but instead reinvested them back into the city.

 

Omar Boraie invested in New Brunswick in four specific areas. New Brunswick was in no way shape or form a place families wanted to raise their children. It was also struggling to entice new businesses to the area and was fighting tooth and nail to keep the businesses they already had. Lastly, there was no real reason for professionals to stay in the city. Without the strong middle-class, New Brunswick would fall.

 

According to WSJ, Boraie Development wanted to create a loving communities for loving families. In order to create loving families, they would have to create quality time for those people. New Jersey Stage published an article detailing how Omar Boraie spoke with the State Theater and offered to sponsor a summer movie night for families. Omar Boraie paid for every family who came to see one of the seven movies. Check out Central Jersey Working Moms to see more.

 

Omar Boraie then focused on the business sector. He began by convincing Johnson and Johnson to stay in town. As long as they remained businesses would long to call New Brunswick their home.

 

Now that jobs were secure, Omar Boraie built commercial and real estate buildings modeled after the spiral in New York to entice young professionals to come to the city.

Eric Lefkofsky Wages War On Cancer

Cancer has become the most common disease that has affected every corner of the world with a rapid rate. Cancer is an uncontrolled growth of abnormal cells that eventually destroy body tissues leading to serious health issues or death. It can occur as benign (limited growth and don’t spread) or Malignant (uncontrolled growth and spreads). Fortunately, a company like Tempus has waged war against this terrible disease and has made significant progress in search of treatment for cancer. Eric Lefkofsky Co-Founder of Tempus has dedicated himself to fighting cancer.

Eric Lefkofsky awakening came after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. On following his wife’s treatment, he was surprised to find about the existence of a vast gap in the collection of data and digital technology. Though a lot of treatment information about patients got produced and gathered, there was no generated method designed to use that data that would be of paramount use when looking at the progress and treatment of patients. As a result of this Tempus took it upon itself to entirely change the delivery of cancer care by providing better and efficient ways.

Tempus came up with a platform that analyzed the treatment and genomic data of a patient to provide a much more precise treatment. Tempus also engineered software that played a critical role in recognition of optical character and processing of natural language abilities. Moreover, data in the form of structures got made from essential physician notes; this would paint a much clearer picture that would aid in the treatment of cancer.

Eric Lefkofsky was born in 1969 in Southfield, Michigan. In 1991 he graduated with high honors in Ann Arbor from Michigan University. Eric also attended School of Law of Michigan for his Juris Degree. Though his education credentials allowed him to pursue law he didn’t. Instead, Lefkofsky joined the revolution of the dot-com and quickly turned out to be a key player.

Company of Tempus headquartered in an area of Chicago is where Eric passes most of his time. Lefkofsky has practiced teaching in various universities in his years, and currently, he serves in business School of Chicago University as an assistant professor as he continues to fight the terrible disease of cancer.

How Betsy Devos Changed Education In America

A number of years has already passed since the first school choice program was started in the United States. Now, there are many school choice programs in almost half of all states. Much of this is thanks to the efforts of Betsy Devos, who has campaigned for many years for school choice programs.

 

Betsy Devos got started with the school choice movement before it became so popular. She saw the need for it, and she knew she had to do something about it. She started out by supporting one of the local private schools. It was a really good school that really helped its students succeed, and Betsy Devos and her husband kept donating money to it. The next thing that they did was start a scholarship fund for people who were in the low income bracket. They started giving out scholarships, but Betsy soon realized that although it was great to be able to help individual families, the fact was that if she wanted to accomplish something on the grand scale of things, she needed to do something else. That is when she started getting involved in promoting school choice programs.

She soon was sitting on the board of two charities that helped support education efforts for kids. She and her husband Dick were very influential in getting Michigan’s first charter school bill passed in 1993. They also started an effort to change the constitution in Michigan to allow the state to support private schools through tax vouchers, but they were unsuccessful in that regard. Betsy Devos believes that it was a shame, because so many families in Michigan could really benefit from having access to more schools.

 

However, Betsy Devos persisted and started taking her campaign for school choice nationwide. In many other states, they were more receptive to the idea. Thanks to her, there are now over two hundred and fifty thousand students in the country who are attending private or charter schools. This would not have been possible without the efforts of Betsy Devos and the support of her husband Dick.

 

Betsy Devos is now the Secretary of Education. She is the eleventh person to sit in that position. She was nominated for the position by Donald Trump because of her philanthropy and activism for children and her efforts to bring them more educational opportunities. She continues to do the same work as Education Secretary.

Prison guard helps to spread the word about Securus’ Wireless Containment System

Securus Technologies, one of the leading providers of prison communication systems, has recently unveiled a game-changing technology in the fight against contraband cell phones. Known as the Wireless Containment System, the cell phone detection and interdiction suite allows for the interception of all unauthorized cellular communications as well as the ability of corrections officers to detect and locate any unauthorized device that has been smuggled into the institution.

 

Contraband cell phones have long posed a serious threat to the safety of penal facilities across the nation. With the world’s largest population of prison gang members, the United States prison system is overrun with some of the most dangerous criminal organizations in the world. The problem with these violent and well-organized prison gangs is that, with effective and easy forms of communication with the outside world, the gangs and their members can nullify their own incarceration. This is because many of the most powerful prison gangs in the U.S. prison system, such as the Aryan Brotherhood and Mexican Mafia, may have half or more of their respective memberships comprised of those living on the outside of the prison system.

 

These outside gang members, known as soldiers, are bound to comply with any order issued by the gang’s leadership, just as they would be if they were real soldiers in a conventional military. Therefore, any time these dangerous gangs get hold of contraband cell phones, they are immediately able to continue perpetrating serious crimes, just as if they were walking the streets again.

 

In fact, contraband cell phones have been used in many cases of witness intimidation, large-scale drug shipments to the inside of prison and even hits on witnesses and guards. Access to unauthorized communication devices also enables gangs to cement their power within the prison itself. Often times, gangs will use the illegal cell phones to get information on rival gang members, other non-gang-affiliated inmates or even their own membership. This information can then be used for purposes of extortion or enforcing intragang discipline, especially in the case of discovering any prior cooperation with the police of gang members coming from other facilities.

 

In short, the surge of contraband cell phones that have flooded the nation’s prison system are one of the top threats to the safe and effective operation of the institutions themselves as well as the safety of those on the outside.

 

Now, Securus Technologies, one of the nation’s largest prison security companies, has unveiled the first system that can claim to be 100-percent effective in neutralizing the threat posed by contraband cell phones. Known as the Wireless Containment System, the technology can prevent calls from being placed by any unauthorized device. Where the system has been deployed, officers are reporting the almost complete neutralization of unauthorized communication devices.

THE WORKERS’ ACTIVIST: JAMES LARKIN

James Larkin, a renowned workers’ activist, was born in 1876 to Irish parents in Liverpool. Due to the poverty in his family, he did not get a formal education. Plagued with poverty, Larkin opted to do manual labor to supplement his family’s income. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://spartacus-educational.com/IRElarkin.htm

This path of manual labor led him to the Liverpool Docks where he, worked as a foreman. It is during this time that he joined the National Union of Dock Labourers (NUDL) and his socialist views came to the forefront.

Larkin’s methods of advocating for workers’ rights were not acceptable to NUDL, and he was, therefore, transferred to Dublin IN 1907 where he formed the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union.

At that time, very few Irish workers had unionized and were suffering under terrible working conditions. Jim Larkin led many industrial strikes in both parties that he co-founded; the most famous was the 1913 Dublin Lockout where for eight months 100,000 workers went on strike.

Unfortunately, his glory years as an activist dwindled, and in 1914 he left Ireland with the idea of being a public speaker across the world. At the beginning of the First World War, he led protests against the war calling for the Irish people to defend Ireland only and not fight for any other nation.

Furthermore, Jim Larkin tried to raise funds from the United States to fight the British. Unfortunately, in 1920 he was found guilty of criminal anarchy and communism and jailed. Three years later he was, however, pardoned and deported back to Britain.

Back in Dublin, Larkin was not welcome to his former union which greatly disillusioned him. His brother and his son formed the Workers’ Union of Ireland (WUI) which was more pro-communism. It was in this union that he served until his death in 1946.

Advocates of migrants’ rights

Since the United States of America was founded, the topic of immigration has always been a controversial topic. It is estimated that over 55 million immigrants have moved and settled in the United States. Except the native Americas everyone else in the United States is there either voluntary or involuntary.

However, even with this fact, the issue of immigration remains a thorn in the peace and stability of the United States. There is hostility that is witnessed with every wave of immigration in the United States.

The situation now has improved compared with the past years. America has come a long way in getting to the state it is in terms of immigration laws. In the past, there has been hostility towards immigrants. This hostility was fanned by extremists who largely relied on myths associated with immigration.

There were organized groups that wanted to ensure that migrants’ movements into the country were greatly curtailed. In 1994 there was a law passed in California that denied every one suspected to be an undocumented resident of U.S.A be denied some of the basic services such as education, medical care, and social services.

Another law that came into being was the “Personal Responsibility and Work Opportunity Reconciliation Act of 1996” passed under the authority of President Bill Clinton. This act of law denied any undocumented immigrant access to federal benefits such as supplemental home security and food stamps.

However, later in the year, these rights were restored to some of the immigrants. These are not the only cases of immigration that the United States have encountered. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/michael-lacey/

Although the constitution of the United States does not allow foreigners to enter the United States as they wish, it protects them from violation of their rights on the basis of race or origin.

It is, therefore, illegal to punish any immigrant by denying them fundamental rights and fair treatment. There is no lesser human being just because on is an immigrant.

ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project

ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project is an organization that was formed in 1985. The organization challenges laws that are unconstitutional before courts of law. They also wish to debunk the myths that have led to some of these laws being passed.

ACLU Immigrants’ Rights Project is one of the leading rights groups that stand up for the rights of refugees, immigrants and any other non-citizen on American soil. Read more: Jim Larkin | Angel.co

There are other many human rights groups that are engaged in activities of human rights protection. Most of these groups operate by offering services such as; pro-bono legal services, creating public awareness on issues of immigration, educating immigrants on their rights, helping relatives of deceased immigrants track the bodies of their loved among other services.

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

The Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund was established by Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin, the owners of Village and Phoenix New Times. Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were given a settlement fee of $3.75 million by a court of law.

Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were jailed by a jury for revealing information about a rogue Maricopa county Sheriff known as Joe Arpaio. They appealed the case, won and the state was ordered to compensate them. They committed the money to human rights initiatives being carried out by human rights groups in the state of Arizona.
