Mobile phones are ubiquitous across the United States. Only the very rare individual does not have a mobile phone of some sort. What members of the general public may not be aware of is how frequently mobile phones are smuggled into correctional facilities in the United States. Even if there is some awareness of the volume of mobile phones illegally brought into correctional facilities, there is not necessarily a clear understanding of how dangerous these devices can be in the hands of inmates. The story of former Florida correctional officer Robert Johnson.

 

During the normal course of his day at the correctional facility, Johnson came upon a box containing about $50,000 in illegal contraband intended to be placed in the hands of inmates. His efforts prevented the introduction of this contraband into the facility, which would have been a major security breach.

 

Sadly, the story of Robert Johnson did not end with the interdiction. Rather, the inmate behind the introduction of the contraband into the facility was not to be outdone. The inmate had possession of an illegal mobile phone.

 

By using the illegal mobile phone, the inmate was able to have a hit placed on CO Johnson. The inmate ordered a fellow gang member in the outside world to shoot and kill Johnson.

 

While getting ready for work one morning after thwarting the introduction of the box of contraband into the correctional facility, the hitman broke into Johnson’s home. Johnson was shot multiple times and nearly died.

 

Since this horrible event, Johnson has made it his mission to educated people on how dangerous mobile phones are in correctional institutions. He fights to prevent the flow of mobile devices into jails and prisons.

 

Securus Technologies is the industry leader in technology designed to prevent the introduction of mobiled phones into correctional facilities. Securus Technologies developed wireless containment systems designed to find mobile devices illegally brought into a correctional facility.

 

Recently, Securus Technologies conducted research to determine how serious the issue of illegal mobile phones in correctional facilities is at this time Securus Technologies learned that over a year time period, Securus Technologies wireless containment systems prevented 1.7 million illegal communication attempts in eight correctional facilities in the United States.

 

Securus Technologies is headquartered in Dallas, Texas, and currently serves the needs of approximately 3,450 public safety, law enforcement, and corrections agencies as well as over 1,200,000 inmates located across the United States and Canada. The company has set itself ahead of the industry pack when it comes to providing its clientele with what is considered to be a full suite of civil and criminal justice technology, services, and solutions. The company is committed to enhancing correctional institution security and community safety through its products and services.

The three investors in the business also are known as great people giving Sweetgreen the full combination as the top in healthy, fresh, organic and local meals. Sweetgreen is ever stormed with long queues of diners in all the forty points. Learn more about Nathaniel Ru: https://patch.com/california/across-ca/nathaniel-rus-vision-sweetgreen

In his statement, Nathaniel Ru who is one of the co-CEOs said that the Sweetgreen is focused on providing the best food to the population. The traditional chains have the advantage of learning more than just the food in the menus.

Sweetgreen enjoys 30% percent of their transaction done through a mobile app and the internet. In addition to the use of technology to improve their services, the three co-CEOs are also investing in improving the management strategies.

With the aim of maintaining a close relationship with the customers, the entire team including the corporate staff work joins together in five occasions in a year. At these occasions, the corporate staff always closes the corporate offices to mingle in the event.

The uniqueness of the Sweetgreen is that it operates without a head office. They are based on decentralization since the three co-CEOs are bi-coastal and are aiming at growing the restaurant nationally.

Nathaniel Ru

Nathaniel Ru studied at the Georgetown University together with the other two co-CEOs. They were all classmates in an entrepreneurship class. They had many things in common that attracted them together. Their parents were all in the first-generation immigration.

Secondly, their parents to the three co-CEOs were private business owners. They came along when they realized and believed that Georgetown had improper food and feeding options.

They were driven by this fact such that they decided to open up the Sweetgreen restaurant immediately they finished their course. The three told the Fortune that their success was dependent on whether they would make it through the winter as the schools ran empty during this period.

The three partners started the company Sweetlife and music and food festival. It has grown to become the region’s biggest attracting over 20000 people. High profile music and top quality food from the best of the chefs are figured during the event.

Now, you may be asking, “Why in the world is North American Man Boy Love Association described as a civil rights organization?” Well, according to the group’s members and founders, it is a civil rights rights groups that fights for a legitimate cause.

Of course, their motives are generally shady, since there is an extremely large, gray, hazy area between what constitutes as a situation of predation and what constitutes as a a reasonable, consensual situation. To an extent, adults do have a physical and emotional advantage over children that they can use to “take advantage” of them.

However, North American Man Boy Love Association, no matter how shady the people in the organization are, makes a few pretty good arguments. For example, if a person is “under the age of consent,” that person may still be fully aware and empowered of what he or she is doing. This especially rings true for older, so-called “children” in their teens. Read more: Michael Lacey | Twitter and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

According to North American Man Boy Love Association, the law infantilizes people and paints things in black and white in such a way that alienates the individuality of people. For example, way before the age of consent, a person can be wise enough, physically developed enough into an adult and knowledgeable enough to actively involve his or herself with an older person.

Another example that justifies North American Man Boy Love Association’s stance is the fact that legally, it’s not supposed to be okay for someone in his or her 20s to date a teenager because of the risk of “victimization” from the big age difference. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

However, it’s totally okay in the eyes of the law for a person in his or her twenties to date somebody who is thirty years older, and supposedly there isn’t a risk for “victimization” or the older person taking advantage of the younger person with his or her life experience. In fact, such an age difference can lead to an older person somehow taking advantage of a more naive person in his or her twenties.

Also, people grow emotionally and physically to a noticeable extent in their twenties. A person who is at the age of consent of 18 may be a less physically developed, more emotionally fragile, easier to take advantage person; and be a seasoned, mature, physically grown, smarter person by age 23. In fact, we are always growing and changing in life, and a person will always be wiser than at a previous age as time goes on.

Of course, when it comes to younger children who aren’t teens, North American Man Boy Love Association’s stance becomes more dubious and shady.

Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

The issues that the Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund stand for are not on the same level of heatedness as that of North American Man Boy Love Association. Of course, there are many people who are unquestionably against the political stance of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin when it comes to immigrants.

However, being pro-DACA and pro-DREAMER are not on the same degree of controversy as North American Man Boy Love Association.

Goettl Air Conditioning is a well-known name in the desert Southwest as it was established in 1932 by brothers Adam and Gust. They were the first to introduce the processes of evaporative cooling and refrigerated air conditioning to desert dwellers in the area and the lifestyles of the populace were changed for the better.

Goettl has serviced over five generations of families from the beginning of the company and the firm is located in Phoenix and Tucson, Arizona, Las Vegas Nevada, and in Southern California. Over the years Goettl has been known for its outstanding customer service and fair prices.

However, in the nineties the company was purchased by a large national management company and things began to go downhill in a hurry. Customers were not being taken care of and employees were beginning to have some serious morale problems. Things were not heading in the right direction at all.

In 2013 Ken Goodrich purchased Goettl and it was a just in time situation. Goodrich was a specialist in company revival, as he has spent his entire business career turning failing companies around. At Goettl he found profits were going down and chaos and disenchantment among customers and employees were on the rise.

Goodrich immediately employed personal visits both with employees and customers and made the focus of the company to be helping customers the priority. Big companies tend to focus on the bottom line at the expense of customers and Goodrich turned that dynamic around in a hurry. Check out bbb.org to see more.

With the push by Goodrich company revenue rebounded from near disaster to a hefty $50 million.

Another move Goodrich initiated was the acquisition of Walton Heating and Air in Southern California. Goettl has always been focused on residential sales and service, and never did much in the commercial HVAC field. Walton, on the other hand has specialized primarily in the commercial HVAC area. The pairing of the two skills was a match made in heaven, as stated by BizJournals.

Todd Longbrake, the former owner of Walton’s pointed out that he had done everything possible to continue growing the company, but that effort had reached its limit as far as he was able to accomplish. Since the acquisition, the Southern California branch has experienced tenfold growth.

Goodrich retained Longbrake and made him Company Sales Manager. Goodrich went on to say that Longbreak quickly established himself as a leader with his vast knowledge and ability. Both sides of the equation came into play making the sum of the total much greater than they were before the merger.

Quality and accessible education is an essential need in every society. Education helps shape the minds of future generations and therefore has a direct influence on the continuity of any country. Consequently, nations must always be engaged in the process of improving their educational standards. Where the relevant authorities are unable to do so, it is left to willing individuals to do so. In the context of the United States, one such individual that has dedicated her life towards education reform is Betsy DeVos. In the instances where advocacy for policy changes has not been effective, she has also used philanthropy as a tool to better the lives of thousands of students across the country.

Betsy DeVos’ involvement in the education sector started on account of her being a parent to school going children. As a result, she was witnessed first-hand the various shortcomings of the education system being used in the country. Therefore, about three decades ago, she decided to do something about it. Her first act was to offer scholarships to high-performing students and schools that lacked financial means. However, she soon realized that these scholarships would only assist a few individuals at a time, while policy changes would help all students disadvantaged by bad education systems. As such, DeVos became one staunchest education reformists this country has seen in recent years. In fact, her contribution to education reform was so significant that it propelled her to be assigned the office of education secretary later earlier this year.

Together with her husband, Dick, Betsy DeVos also runs the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. Founded in 1989, the Foundation has for the last three decades been providing financial support to needy individuals and communities all around the country. In addition to education, the Foundation also focuses on the arts, justice, and community. Over the entirety of its lifetime, the Foundation has put more than $100 million towards various philanthropic projects – making it one of the most generous private charitable foundations in the country.

All in all, Betsy DeVos is a woman to be celebrated, respected, and most of all emulated.
