Securus Brings Global Tel Link Unethical Behavior to Light

Securus Technologies is taking action to bring to light the wrongdoings of inmate communications provider Global Tel Link in an effort to shame the company into action with integrity in the future. According to PR newswire.com, Securus plans to release a series of articles that will highlight many of Global Tel Links lack of integrity and wrongdoings.
Securus recently released the first of these articles which included a 17 page report by the Louisiana Public Service Commission that detailed some of wrongdoings It found during an investigation of Global Tel Link when the company provided outbound call service for the Louisiana Department of Corrections. The investigation found the the company was involved in several unethical behaviors.

Global Tel Link was found to programming the clocks of the phones used by inmates in correctional institutions to add either 15 or 36 seconds to each call made. The company was also found to be double billing, which is the practice of billing each call more the once and using so called add-on programs to inflate the amount of charged for calls after they were rated. Many of these illegal actions were designed to intentionally overcharge customers. The Public Utility Commission report concluded that Global Tel Link overcharged Louisiana taxpayers by $1,243,000.

This report by Louisiana’s Public Utilities Commission report is dated January of 1998 which indicates that Global Tel Link may have been involved in this pattern of highly unethical behavior.

The Chief Executive Officer of Securus America Technologies Richard Smith feels the actions of Global Tel Link were offensive to him personally and the industry as a whole. Mr. Smith believes Global well below the level of integrity most other carriers operate with. He said “Our business’ mission is a lot more than making money. It is to serve all of our customers with their best interests at heart, in the right way.”

A Man Deserving of Recognition: George Soros

It would seem as if, even as big as George Soros Ukraine is, few of the younger generation recognize this legend of a name. This needs to promptly change as we need to give credit where it is due. Not only is he the founder and current chairman of “Open Society”, he has made waves in the world of authors by writing numerous books, including but not limited to, “The Alchemy of Finance” and “The Tragedy of the European Union”. The title of this last book points to some of his recent article posts about the travesty that Ukraine is suffering after the revolutionary upheaval of regimes in that country following a Russian invasion into the Crimean Peninsula. Unmarked soldiers were found to be flooding into the area. It was not until some time after the initial invasion which started in March of 2014, that these soldiers were found to be Russian.

George Soros – Forbes

Although, fast forwarding to 2015/2016, Mr.Soros is exposing the state of Ukraine before the upheaval began by pointing to the bureaucratic non-sense that worked with a tyrant business minded oligarchy which did not have its citizen’s best interests at heart. Mr. George Soros is a philanthropist and by the meaning of this word, he is a perfect match. I’m sure in some dictionaries you can find his picture next to the definition. If this is not true, it should be. This man is trying his best through actions and words to create an area that would allow for positive change in that of bettering the welfare of his fellow humans and exposing the delinquency of people who claim to have a monopoly on the truth. In his articles on Ukraine, Mr. Soros walks the line and gives both sides. He is a talented writer with a very direct style. When reading him and his thoughts on the Russia/Ukraine action that has been going on the past couple years, he points out the fact that Russia has been a threat to the world and to itself and this is no way for the world to work together in order to provide for its citizens. The progressiveness of Mr. Soros is something that i believe all humans should strive for. Not that progress for the sake of progress is necessarily a good thing, Mr.Soros is definitely a man that deserves a round of applause from the world. He recognizes that we are imperfect but he also recognizes that we can achieve great things and that together, it is possible to make for a better tomorrow.

Doe Deere at the Helm of Lime Crime

Doe Deere is the figurehead and founder of a cosmetics company, Lime Crime. Deere is a media darling, her youthful pixie looks, and confection-colored hair present a person who is a living embodiment of a fantasy world. Deere, herself, has a strong connection with mythical figures; she is inspired by unicorns, and her product line is filled with fanciful fantasy names which promise make-up or lipstick that is out of this world. Deere is the sole embodiment of her make-up line. She is the brand, Lime Crime. It is hard to imagine a brand with a stronger figurehead. The Marlboro Man comes to mind as a representation of a cigarette brand and the famous 20th Century artist, Salvador Dali, who shamelessly promoted himself as an embodiment of his surreal fine art. Deere has very successfully merged herself with her product line and remains inseparable from her make-up and lipstick products.
In a YouTube video filmed at a cosmetics convention, she appears at ease before her “selfie” wall that served as a backdrop to her product line and as an imaginary background for a grand opening of a movie or Broadway play. She encouraged convention goers to use the wall as backdrops for photos with Deere. It is all part of her connection with fantasy worlds and with those young women, her market, who purchase her products and want to be a small part of a similar fantasy.
As consumers, we buy things for a myriad of reasons. Packaging plays a part, price, and reputation all align to offer themselves for our perusal and eventual purchase.

 

Deere has created the sizzle, which certainly is something that tantalizes and intrigues her customers, making them want to purchase her products, which are make-up items and lipsticks and certainly not steaks.
There is little doubt that this charming, diminutive transplant from Europe will continue her creative ways and will ably serve her product line as its figurehead. She is gifted with a revolutionary sense of fashion and style, and she appears ready and able to shepherd her company, Lime Crime, down the path of success.

George Soros: The Solution Within a Conflict

As a well known business magnate and philanthropist, George Soros has reached the apex of the business world. His persuasion and understanding of global economy has allowed him to create a sense of monetary influential power amongst himself and his ideas. World leaders and citizens of many countries have mixed opinions of George Soros, but he remains a consistent voice in copious issues regarding the world. Although people believe several of his ideas may be ludicrous or entirely absurd, he continues to promote his ideas due to his self-confidence. His supporters understand his objective to market his strategies and his willingness to create a stabilized global economy.

George is an innovator in regards to the European Unions assistance within Ukraine and it’s resistance of Russian power. He believes the European Union should place the Ukrainian crisis at the top of it’s priority list. However, the European Union will not fully commit to the Ukrainian effort because they do not wish to engage with Russia unpeacefully. George Soros Ukraine has objected that if the European Union modified their regulations there would be sufficient funding to assist Ukraine, but the European Union continues to withhold a ginormous surplus of unused funds for countries already established in the Union. The European Union is more content with sanctioning Russia instead of providing more assistance to Ukraine. These actions by the European Union leave Soros dumbfounded because he is convinced his strategies will be more useful and provide greater results for Ukraine and the EU.

Ukraine & Europe: What Should Be Done?

George Soros – Project Syndicat

Soros advocates that supporting the new Ukraine instead of allowing it to retract to it’s unstabilized state is vital. He claims that Ukraine is the European Union’s most important asset, and if Ukraine is to falter Europe will be faced with another mass of refugees looking for a sanctuary. Saving Ukraine would not only help Ukraine, but the entire European Union. The EU needs to protect itself from Russia, and Soros believe’s Ukraine is the key to safety. This safety does not only include the citizens of Europe, but the economy and state of politics with the European Union.

Overall, George Soros is an idealist who places his ideas on the table and promotes himself in an unprecedented manner. His ideas are incomparable and well mannered. Some people around the world see him as a greedy monopolist, but when there is a crisis Soros will always provide the world with his proposed resolution to the conflict. The choices made by the European Union have not currently resolved the issues in Ukraine, and Ukraine is constantly looking for answers. A Soros solution would provide stability and another step towards peace that the citizens of Ukraine deserve.

Olympic Valley Incorporation Of Ski Resorts Did Not Happen

Article From Reno-Gazette Journal:

There have been a number of challenges for Lake Tahoe’s ski resorts lately. Olympic Valley has been facing many years that lacked substantial snowfall. In addition, there was a fierce debate taking place about incorporation of the area’s resorts. If this incorporation occurred, it would have major impacts on the economy of the area. There even would have been impacts on the finances of the area’s public sector.

However, the incorporation never occurred. Additionally, the weather of the area was more conducive to skiing in recent times. This means that the economy of the area is likely to improve, if the better weather conditions continues.

There was talk of incorporate Olympic valley. This would unite the management of the resorts. However, the ski resorts being united under one management would drastically alter the area’s economy. It would take away from the amount of tax dollars that the region had. This would cause the budgets of the area’s highway maintenance to drop.

As a result, there would likely be more snow and ice on the area’s roads during the winter. This could potentially create dangerous driving conditions more frequently, and it would be very bad for the area’s business. Also, the local businesses in the area would suffer. It would have negative impacts on the area’s hotels, bars, and other business establishments.

However, there was no incorporation. Many people fought against this effort. One of the most prominent individuals against the incorporation of the area’s ski resorts was Andy Wirth. He had a very vested interest in making sure the incorporation never occurred, because he is the CEO of Squaw Valley ski resort.

He was also very active in standing against the incorporation plans. He made some major contributions to the effort to prevent the incorporation from happening. In fact, he raised hundreds of thousands of dollars to the cause of preventing the incorporation from happening.

Additionally, the poor weather of the area for skiers may be making a turnaround. While recent years have tended to have lower snowfall amounts, this past season was an excellent one. It was a very snowy year for skiers, and this was good for the business of the area’s resorts. Hopefully, the climate of the area is soon to change in a good way. The past year may be evidence of a positive trend.

Andy Wirth has been a very successful CEO of Squaw Valley ski resort in Lake Tahoe. However, Andy Wirth also has been heavily involved in various outdoor sporting activities himself. Additionally, he contributes greatly to causes that benefit the environment and community of the Lake Tahoe area.
