The Louisiana Public Service Commission department has found a breach of integrity on behalf of Global Tel Link (GTL), a inmate and criminal justice communications company. In regards to the recent findings, Securus Technologies (one of the leading communications companies in the industry) will hold a series of press releases in efforts to shame GTL into acting with more integrity that they’ve shown in the past. Securus Technologies’ CEO Rick Smith, along with others in the industry are offended by the actions taken by GTL. The Louisiana Public Service Commission department has found some wrongdoings that the company has committed such as added time to phone calls so that they can bill out more and collect more money. They’ve also found that the company has added phone calls when only one phone call was made. There was apparently some programming that was completed on their services to add the extra time and phone calls.
Securus Technologies is one of the leading companies in the industry and is disappointed by their actions. They’ve always strived to ensure that they industry is held with the highest of standards, and it’s disheartening when a company comes in stoops below the level of integrity that it should hold just to make extra money. Findings are stating that GTL has collected over one million dollars extra in tax payer dollars. This is obviously not okay, and they’re taking the proper measures needed to ensure that this doesn’t happen again. Securus Technologies is responsible for the services provided to over 3400 different public safety official, law enforcement agencies and correctional facilities. They are also responsible for over one million inmates and their communications needs. They are dedicated to provide exceptional services to their customers and offer a wide array of product that suit each individuals needs.

When you think of plastic surgery you think of movie stars and celebrities. We all do. A nip here a tuck there and then everything is business as usual. The thing is, now plastic surgery is not only for the rich and famous on drrodrohrich.com. Every day people are looking into getting some work done.
The usual deal is you go to see a doctor, you pay the consultation fee and a lot of the time you might leave not finding what you’re looking for. That can leave potential clients paying money for nothing, frustrated, and at worst not getting anything done. What about the doctors? Sure they get the consultation fee, but they can lose potential clients who they could have helped.

The internet has done it once again and has made life a little bit simpler. Zwivel is a website that brings doctors and potential clients together. All doctors who have signed up for the service can display their credentials proudly. They gain access to a potential pool of clients for a monthly fee of under $500. What’s even better is that all potential clients can pick out who they want to work with and ask questions about potential work that can be done and pricing. All of this before meeting the doctor face-to-face. Another bonus is that the potential clients do this all for free.
One success story involves a Plastic Surgeon from Dallas, TX, Rod Rohrich. People will go to get plastic surgery for any number of personal reasons. One client, he received from using Zwivel had been in the market for plastic surgery for years. Using the tools Zwivel had to offer she was impressed with the credentials and communication she had with Dr. Rohrich and had the surgery shortly after.
It’s a great thing that Dr. Rohrich has embraced how technology has made his ability to interact with clients easier. His potential clients should be impressed with his credentials. He is known internationally, and he is considered to be one of the best plastic surgeons in America. Dr. Rohrich served a term as the president of the American Society of Plastic Surgeons.

Throughout his entire life, Andy Wirth have revolved around the mountain resort and hotel industry. Presently, he is the Chief Executive Officer of Squaw Valley Ski Resorts, a division of Squaw Valley and Alpine Meadows of Tahoe. He has over 25 years of experience and have made Squaw Valley Resorts the best winter tourist destinations across the world.
Andy Wirth earned his Bachelor Degree from Colorado University after which he further his education at Edinburgh University in Scotland. It was during this time that he gained experience as a backcountry ranger for San Pedro Parks and Rocky Mountains National Park. This was in continuation of his father’s legacy who was a former director of the US National Parks Service. Learn more about Andy Wirth: https://about.me/andywirth
Andy acquired substantial knowledge about the weather patterns while still working a ranger before completion of his education. He was then employed at Steamboat Ski and Resort Corporation in 1986. After a series of acquisitions and merging of ski resorts, Andy was appointed the CEO of Squaw Valley, taking over from Nancy Cushing who opted to move on after spending 16 years with the company.
As I was listening to ‘Press Play with Madeleine Brand’ program on radio station KCRW, I overheard a conversation between Madeleine and the CEO of Squaw Valley Resorts, And Wirth. The first question that Madeleine asked Andy was to describe how his winter was.
Andy Wirth noted that after taking over in 2011 where the season experienced a record partial snow fall that was followed by a three dry years. Last year however was the driest in 1200 years. Andy said that though the pass sales basically climbed during the draught period, Squaw experienced a brutal 25% drop in overall business. Learn more about Andy Wirth: www.kcrw.com/people/andy-wirth
Madeleine then questioned about how Wirth’s resort could have weathered in case of a succession of similar other winters. Andy responded by insisting that though the company would not operate substantially profitably, it’s used 4000 acres were pretty much enough for quite a bit of great skiing.
Andy also mentioned that Squaw Valley was prepared substantially in case the draught persisted for a couple more years. He explained that the resort was adopting a mechanism to create snow using science. This way, they could make usable ski paths for a great number of people even when the level of precipitation was still low.
The resort would also consider altering their business model by rescheduling skiing in the summer targeting people who held business meetings, those who booked weddings as well as anyone who came to celebrate special events in the mountains.
In the first three months of 2016, investors bought 481 tons of gold stocks, according to the Commodity Futures Trading Commission. One of the hedge fund managers that is leading the charge on gold is the legendary philanthropists George Soros. The Soros Management Fund has more than $30 billion in assets under management, and this recent investment in gold could make that figure jump substantially by the end of 2016. George Soros is personally worth more than $24 billion, and his net worth seems to increase by the minute. Forbes has Soros pegged at number 35 on the world’s wealthiest list. All of Soros personal wealth came from investing. According to the Wall Street Journal, Soros is buying gold, and he is buying a lot of it. The Soros Fund recently bought 19 million shares of Barrick Gold. Barrick Gold is a gold mining company.
The Soros Management Fund has been busy selling stock as well as buying gold, according to a recent Wall Street Journal article. George Soros decided to reduce the Soros Management Fund’s stock holdings by 37 percent recently, but he kept some of the tech stocks that continue to keep the market alive. The 85-year-old Soros is betting that the global recession that is spreading like a will fire in Yellowstone National Park is going to bring countries around the world to their economic knees. Soros has been warning anyone that would listen that China is on the verge of a major banking meltdown and the European Union is dangling on the edge of a breakup.
Cramer: Investing like George Soros will never make you rich
A Bearish George Soros Is Trading Again
Soros is convinced that the global economic meltdown is in progress, and he’s right. Countries in Europe, South America, and Asia are already experiencing economic declines, and those declines are breaking records. The banks in Italy are struggling to stay afloat, and the banks in China are carrying $2.4 trillion in bad debt on their books. The Federal Reserve has painted itself into a corner and can’t raise interest rates. Corporate profits continue to deteriorate, and even the U.S. economy is showing signs of a possible contraction next year.
The surge in gold is a typical response to shaky economic performances. Gold is one asset that is not affected by any country’s economy. Gold, as well as silver and platinum move freely and prices, change with supply and demand, unlike other commodities that are controlled by large consortiums. That’s why gold is the perfect asset to own when the stock market begins to erode. Soros and other investors say by the end of 2016 gold could be selling at more than $2,000 an ounce. That’s good news for investors like Soros, but it’s bad news for the non-investors that are going to be caught in the worst economic meltdown since 2008.

There are a lot of things in the world that seem unfair, like how hard it is to build up a reputation and how easily it is to taint it. That is the battle a thriving business has to deal with, and it is one where the odds are stacked against you.
Handling Problematic Ratings or Scores
Serving people does mean you have to interact with different types of people. There is no doubt that most of your clients are honest and would not want to harm your business. But that does not mean that you will not experience a mean-spirited client aiming to taint your reputation.
One thing you need to remember is to never let your emotions get the better of you. You would not scream at a customer in front of others, right? That is exactly the attitude that you want to show online as well. You can respond to the complaint or remark but do so professionally and with the focus of resolving the disgruntled client’s issue. For example, ask the client how he or she believes that you can improve the service.
The key is to make sure that you show just how committed you are to satisfy any demands within reason, of course. Do understand that there are some comments that simply cannot be rectified and answering them would make you seem unprofessional. It is important to consider experts like the team behind searchcleanup.com who can help clean up your online reputation.
Another strategy that may deflect an attacker’s comments could be offering more value to your loyal customers. The customers you did get came to you because of the value that you provided. Value is what matters most to a customer and will easily go beyond a distasteful comment that the good people at searchcleanup.com may be able to take care of.
The point is to stay focused on the goal, which is the satisfaction of your customers. But do understand that you will not win them all, so do not feel discouraged. As a teenager might say, “haters are going to hate.”

There is not a financial crisis on today, but this is still a concern for people like George Soros. He is a billionaire who has made a lot of money on investing, but he is also very interested in global politics. George Soros wants to make sure that every country in the world is making the right decisions, and he does not think that that can happen unless countries are informed of how close they are coming to repeating history. He talked to Politico about how the world economy today mirrors the world economy in 2008, his fears about a global crisis and what can be done to stop it.
Wasting time getting to problems is a really big problem in Europe and China. George Soros has invested all over the world, but he also lives in Europe where he can see financial problems play out. The Greek debt crisis was so bad that is nearly bankrupted a country, but the EU did not move very fast to do anything about it. That was such an issue that Greece is still recovering to this day. George Soros is talking to the press and as many leaders as he can to make sure they will not wait to deal with financial issues today.

China is a great place to invest because it has been growing for a long time, but there is no way for people to invest if China cannot keep up with their growth projections. China is supposed to be growing at a fast rate, and they are not projected to do that today. China is going to be in a position where they have to protect their currency, and it is important for them to come up with a plan that can be actionable right now.
George Soros is also talking to investors about how they can make their money go farther, and he think that his lessons are going to be helpful to investors who are starting to become afraid of investing in China or the EU. Volume cannot go down too far or the global economy will stop collapsing. It is a lot like what happened in 2008, but it will be the Chinese economy that takes the biggest hit this time.
George Soros knows a lot about how the economy functions, and he works a lot in political circles to make sure the right leaders are in place. He has given money to political leaders who he wants to see in place to help the world stay stable, but he is still concerned that other world leaders are not listening. His desire to help the world become a better place for every investor is something that distinguishes him from others.

Millions of people use Wikipedia to increase their knowledge, and students write essays to prove their knowledge of a subject. Combining the two by having students write a Wikipedia entry instead of writing a final essay makes perfect sense. This way, an untold number of people will benefit from the student’s research at the University of Sydney, and the online encyclopedia will gain additional material. Wikipedia exacting standards for unbiased, fact-based writing and backing up each statement with a citation are similar to writing a college-level paper, which is likely the reason why more people do not create a Wikipedia page for themselves or their business.
Since it’s challenging to make a Wiki page, business owners often don’t bother to create one for their company. A Wikipedia page increases a company’s visibility on Google and enhanced the organization’s reputation with consumers; nevertheless, businesses are missing out because the owner has trouble following the complicated Wikipedia writing guidelines. If composing a Wikipedia entry is akin to writing a university-level essay, it’s no wonder harried business owners would rather pass up the important branding benefits of having a Wikipedia page about their company than create the entry. This is why it is best to hire Wikipedia editors from a Wiki writing company.
Get Your Wiki is an ideal resource for business owners who want to reap the benefits of having a Wikipedia entry about their business, but who don’t time to study Wikipedia’s guidelines. The Wikipedia editing service creates neutral Wikipedia entries about businesses, making certain that each fact is backed up with a proper citation. Get Your Wiki’s services makes it easy for business owners to get the Wikipedia page they need, without the hassles associated with Wikipedia’s style and content rules. They will also edit a Wikipedia page to keep it current and accurate. They monitor each page they set up and will make the necessary Wikipedia revisions as they come up.
Securus Technologies is a technology company that provides communications equipment and services for the law enforcement community, civil and criminal justice systems and for public safety. Securus also offers inmate communications technology which allows prisoners to keep in touch with their family, friends and associates.
The Video Visitation App
gives people the ability to use their mobile devices or personal computers to talk to inmates. They can do more than just speak to their incarcerated family members; they can also see them face to face. You can download the app from Google Play here >> https://play.google.com/store/apps/details?id=com.securus.videoclient&hl=enThis technology from Securus
helps inmates to stay closer to their families; especially when it is hard for people to travel to a prison facility. Young kids no longer have to spend so much time away from their incarcerated parents and inmates have been known to function better since they can see their loved ones more often. Another advantage is that people no longer have to be charged for collect phone calls.
The inmate communication technology can be used for a fee. The FCC has been trying to limit rates for interstate rates pertaining to inmate calls. Securus had to go to court over this issue and has won their case. What this simply means is that Securus can charge competitive rates for inmate phone calls while still earning a profit.
The FCC has always been trying to help inmates and their families to avoid unfair charges pertaining to inmate communications. Securus wants to work with the FCC in this regard. This company wants to ensure that inmates are not being excessively charged and they want to make sure that prisoners and their families are not being exploited around this issue. Both parties are currently trying to reach a resolution about this issue.
Securus Technologies is in no way a part of the Securus supplement for health promotion nor the Securus America site for agents.
Securus House is also a separate entity as it is a domestic violence victims center.
Status Labs started out a few years ago, and the company has grown immensely in only a short period of time. With 1,500 clients and counting, the company’s revenue coffers have reaped more than a few rewards. Darius Fisher, the president of Status Labs, has reaped a few rewards for his work. Fisher’s name was placed on PR Week’s Innovation 50 list, a list designed to shed light on up and coming stars in the digital marketing profession. Fisher’s managerial skill has definitely helped take the company to new heights. No one will deny that.
The past 12 months have been very positive for the growth of Status Labs. The year saw an increase in the number of professional marketers and SEO experts working at the Austin, TX headquarters. These professionals also helped Status Labs get involved with a number of ventures with other companies in the Austin region. While the company does have offices in New York and San Paulo, and clients do come from 35 countries worldwide, maintaining a solid home base is necessary for success. Effectively stabilizing the company’s presence in Austin has done a lot for this cause.
Darius Fisher has also done a great deal to enhance the company’s profile. Coming up with the idea to offer free crisis counseling to victims of the Ashley Madison dating hack to submitting opinion pieces on Forbes’ website, Fisher has helped draw a lot of attention towards his company.
The attention Status Labs has received allowed the firm to procure some very high-profile clients and advisors. The new trustees and advisors helping the company, in particular, bring forth an enormous amount of support and assistance. With their advice, Status Labs should experience even more success throughout 2016. Status Labs has far more great heights to reach, as time will reveal.
