Imagine the frustration of law enforcement officers when a case goes cold. Experience law enforcement officers know exactly how a criminal thinks and understand if a crime was committed by a certain person. They worked tirelessly to collect evidence against the particular criminal in order to obtain a conviction in court.
But sometimes investigations are stymied. The collection of evidence may become difficult and it looks like the criminal will get off with his crime. It is times like these that are particularly frustrating to the seasoned law enforcement officer. That’s why it is critical to innovate in the field of criminal justice in order to assist law enforcement officers while they investigate crimes.
One of the best tools that law enforcement officers have at their disposal has been innovated by a telecommunications company called Securus Technologies. You can think of Securus Technologies as a telephone company that provides telephone services to jails. It’s not exactly a company that you would like to do business with because it means that you are currently behind bars.
The company assists law enforcement officers by recording every single telephone call made into and out of a jail. As you can imagine, this creates quite a massive treasure trove of information. It would be nearly impossible to sift through all of this information, but Securus Technologies has innovated a software program that allows law enforcement officers to find a needle in a haystack.
The software program digs deep into this treasure trove of digital information. It can lock onto a particular vocal signature so that law enforcement can pull up every single phone call that a particular suspect has made. As you can imagine, there is a lot of actionable intelligence recorded on these telephone calls that allow law enforcement officers to chase down new leads.

It’s no surprise to anybody who watches the NBA that it is all about the offense. The All-Star game usually reaches into the 160-plus point range. Even regular season games can reach into the 120s. The top two players in the NBA are both prolific scorers.
- LeBron James, Cleveland Cavaliers
Ok, so this isn’t going to surprise anybody considering the best player in the NBA. As long as LBJ has been in the NBA, he has been lauded as the best player in the league. There is no reason for that to change this year either. Sure, he isn’t leading the league in scoring this year, but he is absolutely the best player in the Association.
He is averaging close to 26 points per game, but he is also passing the ball to his teammates. LeBron is known for his aggressive style of play, both on offense and defense.
- Russell Westbrook, Oklahoma City Thunder
Russell Westbrook is an absolute STUD this year. Averaging a triple-double this season, he has legitimately made himself into a bigger super star than his former teammate Kevin Durant. Westbrook has never looked better in his career than he does this season. It’s truly remarkable to watch him.
While Westbrook is setting records on the offensive side of the ball, his defense is pretty good as well. He is one of the best at stealing the ball in the league, which is a big part of his offense.
Westbrook and James are the top two players in the NBA this season, without a doubt. They might not compare to the best NBA centers, but they’re pretty good in their own right.

A recent article by Chris Burch, describes how technology and fashion feed off one another. He claims technology becomes fashionable, and vice versa. He uses devices like the Walkman and how they were fashionable to carry around in the 90s or how boom boxes were fashionable in the 70s.
He states that currently fashion designers are using the newest technology to make new fashion designs, because technology is so important, and this is what people want. Together the two bring a higher standard to innovation. He mentions Anouk Wipprecht, a designer who designed a drink-making dress.
Another designer, Terese Alstin made a system to protect bikers from injury by wearing a device around their necks that would pop open to prevent their heads from impact in an accident. When it is not open, it allows for a clearer view of the surroundings than a helmet does. He points to the fact that movement can become energy, so new clothing can harness this kinetic energy to power watches, mp3 players and more.
Burch stresses that fashion and technology can grow together and help with each other’s development. The benefits of one can be used to enhance the other. Technology can help create beautiful fashions that are also functional.
Christopher Burch is the head of Burch Creative Capital. The company invests in innovative projects that use imagination and creativity, leading to disruptive brands that change the world. Burch has been involved in the development of over 50 companies over the years. He has used his keen understanding of consumer behavior to build many successful innovations,
Some of his most recent projects include the introduction of ED by Ellen DeGeneres, Cocoon9, Nihiwatu, and Voss Water and others. Burch Creative Capital is also supporting the development of lifestyle products from retail, apparel and home products. Some of these include BaubleBar, Blink Health, Brad’s Raw Foods and Chubbies.
It is claimed that Burch became a billionaire in 2012, because of the increase in the value of his majority stake in C. Wonder. Burch has three daughters with his first wife. He married fashion designer Tory Robinson in 1996. They have three sons.

The real estate properties in the Middle East have beautiful designs and sophistication that other countries can emulate. If you have checked out the real estate industry in this region, one of the names responsible for such scenic beauty is Hussain Sajwani. He is the founder and owner of DAMAC Properties; one of largest market leaders in this industry in the Middle East. He began the company in 2002 and it is currently headquartered at Dubai. When you look further into this great man, you will find that he has worked with great people among them, President Donald Trump. Trump’s real estate company; Trump Organization, has closely worked with DAMAC Properties. For instance, in the development and construction of the Trump International Golf Course in Dubai.
Under the leadership of Hussain Sajwani, DAMAC has managed to developed many properties of high quality, unique designs and prestige all over the Middle East. One of the reasons for this great success is the hardworking and vigorous nature of Hussain Sajwani, who does not let anything come between him and his business. He is also easy to interact with which has earned him some very powerful friends. He is a support of the government affairs. For example, during the Ramadhan charity initiative by the government of the United Arab Emirates, he was one of the major contributors. He also donates to charity under his organization. He has facilitated DAMAC Properties in setting up the DAMAC Maison; a section to provide housing facilities to the less fortunate.
One of the challenges that Hussain Sajwani is facing is the uncertainty surrounding the business-political conflict of interest in Trump’s presidential victory. As president, Trump is required to step aside from his businesses. This may affect the operation of Trump Organization to which Hussain Sajwani has direct affiliations. However, Hussain Sajwani is not afraid. If Trump leaves business, his children Ivanka, Eric and Donald will take over. Hussain Sajwani has interacted with Trump’s family and has seen his children represent their father’s businesses in many forums both local and international. He feels that his organization will continue working with President Trump, through his children. Now, that’s what we call confidence.
