Securus Technologies has come out with this really interesting innovation. Some of you reading this are going to roll your eyes and say that we should be tougher on inmates. I don’t think we should be any tougher. Studies suggest that prisoners who are treated humanely and are allowed to talk to their families are much less likely to commit new crimes upon their release. This makes Video Visitation by Securus Technologies a public safety product.
This innovation does all sorts of positive things for the inmates and their families. Oftentimes, families must drive all the way across state in order to visit their prisoner. The cost of physical visitation can add up, and there is a cost in time to consider. Many family members must skip out on work to join the caravan to the prison. It becomes a double whammy, the travel costs money and the travel prevents you from making more money.
Some of you might not want to hear this. You’re the type that thinks we should throw the book at criminals. If you are this type of person, you should still be a fan of video visitation technology by Securus because of the benefits to law enforcement.
Securus records all calls going into and out of a prison that the service. This includes video visitation. Securus helps law enforcement to search this digital database of recorded calls with a software innovation that is off the charts. This proprietary software searches the entire database for a particular vocal signature. Law enforcement can reach back into a massive archive to find a needle in a haystack. This innovation really helps law enforcement pursue criminals and stop crimes before they happen.
Whether you are a fan of what this technology does for prisoners and their families, or you are a fan of what it does for law enforcement, you have to like this innovation.
In recent years, sapphire engagement rings have become very popular with couples around the world. Brilliant and colorful, sapphires exude a sense of elegance and excitement that can’t be matched. Sapphires provide a vibrant symbol for a couple’s commitment to each other, and they are quite noticeable by other people.
The sapphire gemstone is usually blue in color, but several other colors of the stone are also available. Sapphire engagement rings that contain unusually colored sapphires are particularly in-demand these days. There are yellow sapphires, pink sapphires, and green sapphires, as well as purple, and padparadscha varieties.
Padparadscha sapphires are salmon or peach-colored gemstones that are highly treasured all over the world. This variety of sapphire comes in a range of hues, from pale peach to a vivid pink.
Since 1939, the Natural Sapphire Company has been the leading source of rare, untreated sapphires. The professional gemologists at this well-respected company specialize in untreated sapphires, which are generally far more valuable than commercially treated sapphires.
The Natural Sapphire Company makes direct purchases of rough sapphires from responsible miners. By cutting the stones in their own lapidary factory, the company eliminates the need for a middleman, which translates to lower prices for their customers. This ethical company also only works with sapphires that are from environmentally responsible, non-violent countries.
Although diamond engagement rings are still chosen by some couples, engagement rings featuring a combination of sapphires and diamonds are now increasingly being chosen. The contrast between diamonds and sapphires is very attractive, and the rings usually retain their value well.
The Natural Sapphire Company offers you the option of custom building your own jewelry designs with any of their stones, or purchasing just a stone alone.
No matter what size or style you choose, a sapphire engagement ring is always a good choice.

Chances are if you follow the news or celebrity gossip at all, you have at least heard of Kabbalah. But what exactly is it? Kabbalah is an ancient wisdom that helps its students understand how the universe works and see their role in it. It is based on the Jewish faith but students do not have to know anything about Judaism to study it. In fact, Kabbalah is more of a spiritual supplement than a religion in and of itself.
The word Kabbalah literally translates to “to receive.” This makes sense because students of Kabbalah learn how to achieve and receive true fulfillment in their lives. Often we wonder why things are not going our way in life. Kabbalah teaches us that positivity and kindness towards others can help stop this chaotic, stressful lifestyle pattern. As a student of Kabbalah, you will learn how everything in the universe is connected and how you can achieve real fulfillment through this understanding.
Since its founding by Phillip and Karen Berg, the Kabbalah Centre has been serving students in over 50 locations around the world. Today the nonprofit organization’s headquarters are located in Los Angeles, but major branches are also located in New York City, London, and Toronto. Their goal is to bring the Light of Kabbalah to people of all ethnicities and backgrounds in countries around the world through events, books, lectures, private study with rabbis, and online courses.
A number of celebrities are known to be students at the Kabbalah Centre. The most widely known of these is singer and actress Madonna, who regularly studies with a personal rabbi. She has even changed parts of her lifestyle (like not performing on Friday nights) to coincide with Kabbalah’s teachings. Other stars who have been associated with the Kabbalah Centre include Ariana Grande, Lucy Liu, James Van Der Beek, Demi Moore, and Lindsay Lohan.

When it comes to providing a better workplace environment, coworking spaces have done that. Coworking spaces are a relatively new phenomena that are starting to take a hold of the workforce at large due to the changes they provide to traditional workplace. Much of the economy is starting to consolidate in the information technology sector, and since many of those jobs can be done remotely, traditional offices are starting to become obsolete. Working from home always has been and always will be an option, but many people find themselves more productive and feeling less isolated when working around peers, and that’s what coworking spaces provide.
You don’t have to show up at your coworking space whenever you need time off for medical appointments or simply vacation time, and you’re usually free to select whichever times you want to work, whether it’s early mornings and afternoons, or evenings and late nights. You do rent your own coworking space (unless you’re a remote worker whose company pays for it), but usually you’re not tied up in a big lease with a long contract. Coworking spaces, in addition to having office equipment such as printers and copiers available, or even furnished offices, could also have coffee shops, spas, gyms, or billiards even in the same building.
Coworking spaces are growing in big cities, and New York City is no exception. Here, you’ll find Workville, a large luxurious NYC coworking space located in central Manhattan not far from Times Square. Here, you can find rental options that fit whatever your business needs are. You can rent spaces in an open lounge, or choose private offices with dedicated desks. You also have mail service, high-speed Wi-Fi, mail service, and 24-7 building access at Workville. There are also conference rooms that can be reserved for important meetings, and if you want to host a company function or private party, you can do that if you reserve ahead of time through the proper authority. If you just want to take a breath of fresh air out on the terraces, you’ll get a great view of the city from Workville.
