The End to Accusations

There are many issues within the business world, and this includes patent laws for products that are generated by companies. Securus Technologies, an information technology firm, has recently been under fire by one of its competitors over the possibility of operating under expired patent codes for its products. If true this would mean that Securus would need to legally release its products for use in the outside world, and this would definitely mean ruin for the company as a whole. After much research has been conducted on the situation it would seem that these accusations are untrue and baseless. This means that not only will Securus continue to offer the same products to their customers but that they can continue to develop and build on these products for a long time to come.

 

Securus Technologies is a communications solution company that provides excellent service and products to incarcerated individuals currently residing within the United States prison system. One such product that is frequently used is a downloadable application for both Apple and Android devices that allow customers to communicate through video chat interfaces that work over reliable WiFi signals. This means that not only will inmates be able to effectively communicate with their loved ones on the outside, but they will be able to provide for them the ability to avoid uncomfortable security checks at the prison and also bypass time it would take to physically drive to the location itself.

 

Securus, through its products, has been able to give to their customers something that no one else has decided to do. Inmates are an often times ignored consumer base in the United States, and one that Securus happily and gratefully accepts with open arms. This identifies them as both a technology company and as a humanitarian firm as well.

Thor Halvorssen Targets Unilateral Dictator Kim Jong Un

Thor Halvorssen is a human rights genius. And the 39-year-old comes from good stock. His father was a political prisoner in the country of Venezuela for 74 days. During captivity he was tortured until his release was secured by human rights groups such as Amnesty International. In fact, it was Thor Halvorssen himself who got the human rights groups involved. He was mere freshman at the University of Pennsylvania at the time.

His mother also suffered for what she believed in. During a peaceful rally in New York City she was shot for voicing her opinion against Chavez. And it is parents like these that inspired Thor Halvorssen to found the Human Rights Foundation. The HRF now targets dictators around the world.

The HRF targets only particular countries. The countries must be led by a unilateral power with no separation of powers within the government. That unilateral power must have no checks and balances. And that unilateral power must not be under the constraints of a democracy. The Human Rights Foundation sees the unchecked power of the dictator as the cause of all human rights suffering in the world.

And now they have targeted the Peoples Democratic Republic of Korea, otherwise known as North Korea. North Korea is run by a third-generation unilateral dictator known as Kim Jong Un. Kim Jong Un’s rise to power was rife with human rights abuses.

Thor Halvorssen ordered the execution of any political dissident that stood in his way, including his own uncle. The dictator assumed unilateral power across the country by eliminating any opposing voices.

And without any opposition or checks and balances to stand in his way, he is free to run the country however he sees fit. Unfortunately, his vision for the country does not line up with a good quality of life for his citizens.

More than 3.5 million North Koreans have perished due to starvation and famine. Meanwhile, the dictator spends money to beef up the military and on lavish resorts for upper class Koreans.

According to BuzzFeed, Thor Halvorssen and the Human Rights Foundation are doing everything they can to take down the current North Korean government.

YouTube Artist, Wengie’s Easy and Fun Hair Beauty Tips

Wengie, as always, brings a positive energy to her audience with her upbeat attitude and fun ways of describing how the everyday person can improve their physical beauty and well-being. This video focuses on hair care and styling tips geared towards keeping one’s hair healthy and looking it’s best. Wengie’s recommendation for a strong hair foundation begins with eating healthy and getting one’s body the essential minerals and vitamins for strength and growth. Biotin, folic acid, vitamin C, Omega 3’s, and vitamin A. All of these vitamins and more can be found in the easy to take, Sugarbearhair Gummy Vitamins.

Wengie goes on to further explain some simple tricks that can be used to style one’s hair easily and tips to keep hair from damage and frizz. One of the easiest things that can be done to improve hair’s appearance is washing one’s hairbrush by picking out the hair left behind, scrubbing the brush down in a basin filled with water and a small amount of shampoo, followed by toweling dry the hairbrush. This can reduce the occurrence of oils and dead follicles being put back onto hair when re-using a brush. Replacing drying one’s hair after a shower with a T-shirt instead of a towel can also reduce damage and prevent frizz. The key is in the softer fibers of a T-shirt that will be gentler on the hair. Also, it is important to note that using a patting motion to dry the hair is much better than a rubbing motion to keep damage to hair minimal. Another quick tip Wengie recommends is not shampooing hair every day and instead use a dry a shampoo in regular shampoo’s place. Corn starch or baby powder can be used as an effective dry shampoo as well. Applying the powder right to the scalp and brushing it evenly throughout your hair is most effective to do right before bed as it will give one’s hair time to absorb the powder and be good to go in the am.

How To Choose The Right Online Reputation Management Firm

This digital world has its perks when used for a business. It can generate leads without the need for expensive advertisements. It also has its cons; one bad review of a company online could affect its reputation, and this ultimately affects revenue generation.

An online reputation reviews company comes in handy in such circumstances. As a business owner, how can you pick the right online reputation management company to handle your online presence?

According to Fox News, you can do this by;

  1. Conducting an online search

When you search for an ORM firm, you must start online. As you search, avoid firms that pay for ads. The chances are that these firm are more interested in getting new clients instead of servicing the ones they have. Search for companies that appear organically, rather than those that have to pay to rank.

  1. Communicating with the firms

Communicate with firms you have found to ensure that they are skilled enough to handle your profile. Beware of firms that guarantee quick fixes to an online reputation. Such results will probably be against Google’s guidelines and will hurt your business more.

Also, stay away from firms that use black-hat SEO. Search for terms such as link farming and keyword stuffing and run far from such companies. Google want only valuable content to rank, and they penalize sites that try to outsmart the search engine using black-hat SEO.

Ask the firm how it plans to reach your goals. Do they outsource content? They must be entirely transparent about their plans for the coming months to allow you make only informed decisions.

  1. Understand the contract

Ensure that your company becomes the sole owner of all content given to you by the ORM firm. You wouldn’t want a nasty intellectual property lawsuit that could cost your company money. If this isn’t included in the contract papers, ask them to include it.

Also, firms that ask for a deposit to test their services for a short while before deciding to enter an agreement with them should be avoided. Such firms will only deliver short term results with unhealthy means.

 

Inspirational Works of Jose Manuel Gonzalez

Gonzalez has been an inspiration to most people all over the world. He is a known businessman and he is now in politics trying to bridge the gap between the two. This will help the two sectors work together in harmony to enhance peace and ensure that the economy develops. According to Manuel, there is great potential in Venezuela since there are available resources for farmers to utilize. He has been working for some time as the deputy in national assembly which has helped him understand the government more.

 

Keeping and Maintaining Balance

 

With this knowledge, he will be in a better position to know which places need changes. There is a lot of mismanagement of resources by the state government which leads to low agricultural produce. Jose Manuel Gonzalez has developed a close relationship with his community since he attends meetings and interacts with them. Since he has no enemies in the assembly, he intends on keeping it the same so he can balance the two and be in a position to gain trust from the people.

 

Manuel believes that it is possible for the country’s economy to improve in case the agricultural sector is looked into. Most of the farmers in this area stopped producing more tons of rice and corn since there was no market or outlet. They were not able to predict the future especially concerning their produce and this forced most of the farmers to quit farming.

 

Conclusion

 

Gonzalez argues that it is possible for the country to solve problems in the sector by having a national agreement. This agreement will help take into consideration the future generations and their responsibilities. To develop a more stable and reliable Parliament, Jose feels that it is the best platform to launch the agreement. It is always important for any country to have a proper governance and ensure there is no crisis. This will help in economic growth and it enhances peace among the citizens and their leaders. Gonzales is the best example of leaders who intend on bringing positive changes to the country and ensure that the main source of income in Venezuela is maintained and developed.
