Prison is a scary place to be, but many prisoners are working to rehabilitate themselves for a brighter future. These prisoners deserve the opportunity to pull themselves out of a terrible situation. Every prisoner also deserves the opportunity to see their loved ones on a regular basis. Unfortunately, many families live hundreds of miles from the prison and cannot visit their incarcerated loved one on a regular basis. Securus technology is working to make visitation just a little easier for everyone.
Securus technology is the top company in the prison communication field. For years, they have made phone calls from prison possible. They are constantly trying to innovate solutions for prisons that will make life easier for prison officials and prisoners. Recently PR Newswire reports, the rolled out a new visitation app that is going to change prison for the better.
Video chat has been a reality for normal Americans for almost a decade. Skype, Facebook video chat, and Google Hangouts allow people to see each other, even when they are incredible distances apart. While this video chat technology is impressive, it has not been put to work in America’s prisons. Securus realized that video technology had not been used in prisons, and they decided to develop their own video visitation app.
Securus’ new video visitation app will open new opportunities for families around the country. The video app is extremely easy to use and allows people to visit from anywhere. First, you must schedule a visitation by visiting Securus’ site and using your log-in to schedule your meeting. When your meeting time occurs, you simply open the video visitation app and make sure that you a great wi-fi signal. From this point family members can enjoy a wonderful visit with their incarcerated loved one. The system has already been installed in several prisons, and it is receiving rave reviews from prisoners and their families.
Prison officials are huge fans of the new video visitation app for several key reasons. The app requires very little infrastructure from the prison. All you need is a working tablet and a wi-fi connection. Most prisons already have the infrastructure they need for the app. The app also reduces stress on prison visitation areas, so prisons are not required to hire as many staff members.
Visitation just got a lot easier thanks to Securus. This new prison visitation app should open up visitation to family members around the United States. Visit BBB to get more info on Securus.

The Fabletics brand has emerged as one of the most successful brands on the market, but it is all because of the high profile connection with co-founder Kate Hudson. As an actress, Hudson has been able to get millions of fans to notice her brand. She is well connected in the industry, and all the magazines are trying to get an exclusive.
Marie Claire has been one of those magazines that has managed to get information that the fans want to know. In an exclusive interview with Kate Hudson at http://www.marieclaire.com/fashion/news/a19566/kate-hudson-fabletics-interview/ there has been a lot of talk about athleisure and the way that people perceive the Fabletics brand. Kate has been vocal about the fact that this brand doesn’t require Spanx and some of the outfits even come equipped with a bra.
Customers that use the brand have seen how the Kate Hudson stamp of approval is able to sell clothes. When they go to the website there are special picks from Kate. This is something that has made people pay attention to the brand. That is what has separated Kate Hudson from the rest. That is what separates the Fabletics brands from the competition. She is a hands-on businesswoman that has taken time to see the brand evolve.
People that follow the early timeline will notice that the brand was getting lots of recognition on the Internet. There were a lot of people in the United States and abroad that were ordering clothes through the site. The athletic wear that would be ideal for working out, and athleisure buzz made people discover Fabletics.
Billions of dollars will be spent on exercising, workout clothes and gym memberships. People are impressed with this brand, and Hudson will have no problem with making this brand profitable because there is a demand for workout clothing. Many people may not use their workout equipment. Many may never go to gym that they signed up for. Lots of women, however, will still use the Fabletics clothes because these garments can be used for more than working out. That is the genius of the brand. It can enhance the wardrobe because the clothes are stylish and comfortable. Even when people do not carry out their mission to hit the gym, they can still enjoy the comfort of the athleisure that this brand is providing.
Hudson has made it her mission to educate people on the brand because she knows that this is what sells it. People may take a glance at the clothes and assume that these are cookie cutter outfits. Kate Hudson, however, knows that informing people about the fabric and the style will make these outfits stand out. She’s a savvy businesswoman with a purpose.

Cancer specialists in Venezuela call out for help because patients are dying due to lack of access to even the most basic medications. Physicians say that the current state of corruption in the government is creating a situation where they are unable to provide medical care to patients who are suffering. Doctors like Jose Manuel Gonzalez have almost no equipment to work with and there is a medical crisis that is severely affecting the country.
Deplorable Hospital Conditions
The conditions inside of Venezuelan hospitals can be considered nothing less than deplorable says Dr. Jose Manuel. Patients are forced to lay in disgustingly dirty beds and they have no access to fresh water or air conditioning. There is very little running water in some places, but in most places, there is none. Toilets are clogged and there are no cleaning supplies for the staff to prevent the spread of illness.
Patients are provided with very little food, and what they do get is barely edible. They are not given food on a regular schedule because there is not enough to go around. Many patients are brought food, medication, drinking water, and cleaning water by their families.
Reminders of Death Everywhere
The morgues are full, refrigerators are broken and widespread blackouts prevent medical professionals from properly handling the deceased. Because of this, many of the public hospitals have deceased patients grimly lining the hallways until arrangements can be made for them.
Doctors plead with the government for help, but just like everyone else in this collapsing country, their pleas remain unheard.

Companies around the world have multiple regulations, laws, and quality controls to adhere to. To prevent lawsuits, large businesses can hire what is known as a compliance officer. Compliance officers are required to review business compliance and ensure that whatever company they are working for, adheres to the laws not just from the United States, but worldwide. Keeping track of so many laws is a rough and challenging business, however, the career field experiences a growth of ten percent each year. At a recent conference for this field, it was stated that it is one of the fastest growing careers with the most opportunities for advancement. So great is the growth that there are now programs at over a dozen universities that allow students to obtain a degree as a compliance officer. According to Roy Snell, who is the CEO of the Society of Corporate Compliance & Ethics, this is a job that fixes the problems that arise in large companies.
One such person who has contributed to the field of compliance, is Helane Morrison. Morrison began her collegiate career in Journalism at the University of Berkley where she obtained her J.D. while working as the Editor-in-Chief for the California Law Review. Later, she also obtained her B.S. in Journalism while working as a newspaper reporter. Between 1984 and 1986, Morrison worked for Supreme Court Justice Harry A. Blackmun and Hon. Richard A. Posner of the U.S. Court of Appeals. A year afterwards, while also working at the San Francisco law firm Howard, Rice, Nemerovski, Canady, Falk & Rabkinshe, she passed the California State Bar and began her work as a lawyer.
Nine years later, Morrison began working for the Securities and Exchange Commission in San Francisco. Between 1996 and 1999, Morrison completed three major cases that involved disciplinary action against New York and California. In the year 1999, Morrison became a woman of history: She became the first woman to be the chief of the San Francisco District Office. In 2007, after continuing to “strengthen the impact” of the SEC, she now works as the Managing Director, General Counsel, and Chief Compliance Officer of Hall Capital Partners LLC while also maintaining her position as a member on the Board of the Regional Parks Foundation.

Freedom is something we all take for granted, each and every day. We expect it and don’t fully appreciate it. However, sometimes we need things to be taken away from us to grasp that, as they say, freedom isn’t free. That is why, we should enjoy our lives to the fullest. We never know when that freedom will be taken away from us. That is why Yeonmi Park‘s story is touching so many people these days. Her book, In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom, is a profound read, which goes into great detail to explain what she went through on her path to freedom. She is now stronger than ever.
Let’s face it: life these days is all about survival and her story of survival is something that has really moved and touched many readers. We all look for inspiration and sometimes we find it in others. We can look at them and say, “If they can do it, so can I.” Anything is possible when you refuse to quit, believe in the idea that someday you will be be free or obtain whatever your goal is. Yeonmi Park is a true inspiration.
These days, young girls of all ages need someone they can look up to and they need someone that can inspire them to believe that anything is possible if they look deep within themselves, never give up, and always stay positive. It can be trying at times, but if Yeonmi Park can do it, under unbelievably tough conditions and circumstances, there is no reason that others can’t gain something from her story. That was the whole reason she wrote her book: to tell her story and inspire others.
People like Yeonmi Park don’t come along every day and when they do, it is always a treat to hear their story and hear how they overcome everything they had to endure. It reminds us that many our lives aren’t as bad as we make them out to be sometimes. It is also a gentle reminder that we need to enjoy our freedom daily.
