How Securus Technologies Helped My Sick Son

Standard

Securus Technologies has truly been a blessing to me. I am not in the prison to be there with my son. Even though he is almost thirty, he is still my baby. But I am so happy that Securus Technologies is in place. He loves to talk on the phone every chance he gets. He will talk to me, his brothers and all his family members on separate days. Then he talks to his friends. And lastly, he has a lady friend I am sure he spends time with on the phone. I am mentioning this because none of us knew he was sick. With all that talking he does, he never mentioned that he wasn’t well.And it was only to one person that he would mention that he was under the weather at times. And it was not his lady friend. It was his friend he grew up with. Securus Technologies overheard a recorded conversation of how my son had this nagging pain in his side. Then later in the same week, he was overheard telling the same person that he had a headache that would not go away, in addition to the side pain. Tha is when Securus Technologies notified the authorities and he was seen by a doctor. Little did we know, he had acute appendicitis. His appendix was about to burst and we never would have known what was. The news may have come too late. That is why I thank you Securus Technologies for being there. You not only heard, but went to help where you could. They should put this on the news. When something nice is done, we never hear about it. Now my son is fine because with the program of Securus Technologies, the appendix bursting was caught just in time. I am forever grateful.

 

Open Access and the Wessex Institute of Technology’s eLibrary

Standard

Open Access is the way of the future when it comes to published materials.

WIT has introduced an eLibrary that contains over 28,000 peer reviewed articles in Open Access. There exist other journal databases such as EBSCO Host and Google Scholar that provide links to some Open Access materials, but Wessex Institute of Technology’s eLibrary is unique in having solely Open Access material.

 

The content of the articles deals primarily with work in the fields of science and engineering. Included in their collections are journals such as the International Journal of Safety and Security Engineering and the International Journal of Energy Production and Management.

 

WIT’s eLibrary truly is pioneering the path for the use of Open Access journals and articles among higher education establishments. In so doing it is expanding the audience that can enter into the academic conversation.

Don Ressler: Internet Marketing And Brand Building Maven

Standard

When it comes to online performance marketing and business and brand building, few people have as good a track record as Don Ressler. Starting in the early days of internet marketing he has been able to raise hundreds of millions of dollars in funding for internet based businesses. He has also been instrumental in building a number of very successful companies using his internet marketing skills on Pando and understanding of the needs of the modern consumer. Ressler started his first company, FitnessHeaven.com in the late 1990s. Using his marketing skills and experience he was quickly able to make it so profitable it was snapped up by Intermix Media. The company was so impressed with Ressler’s work they made him a part of their staff.

At Intermix Media Ressler worked with 19 year old Adam Goldenberg to co-found one of Intermix Media’s most reliable profit centers, Alena Media on LinkedIn. As a part of Intermix’s marketing arm Alena Media, led by Ressler and Goldenberg, generated hundreds of millions of dollars for its parent company. It helped to make Intermix Media so attractive that News Corp bought the company in 2005 for over $650 million. The new owners failed to fully utilize the talents of Ressler and Goldenberg, so the duo left and formed a company of their own. That company, Brand Ideas/Intelligent Beauty, and its subsidiaries would help to make Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg’s work legendary.

Founded less than a month after Ressler and Goldenberg left Intermix Media, Brand Ideas which later became Intelligent Beauty, is a business incubator. Don Ressler and Adam Goldenberg used it to create, launch and develop DERMSTORE and SENSA and generate almost $500 million in revenue in one year.

Kabbalah Centre

Standard

Kabbalah has recently become more popular due to its celebrity following. Famous actors and musicians such as Miley Cyrus, Madonna, Ariana Grande, Ashton Kutcher and Rihanna have all been associated with Kabbalah teachings, which has piqued the general public’s interest in Kabbalah.

The Kabbalah Centre, a nonprofit organization located in Los Angeles, is one of the main learning facilities for Kabbalah in the United States. The center offers both on-site and online classes for those who are interested in embracing Kabbalah teachings.

Contrary to popular opinion, Kabbalah is not a form of Judaism, and individuals can become part of Kabbalah without having previous knowledge of Hebrew or Jewish writings. Kabbalah is also seen as a supplement to major religions such as Christianity, Judaism and Buddhism, and teachers at the Kabbalah Centre emphasize the notion that the principles taught in Kabbalah are very similar to the tenets of many major organized religions.

The Kabbalah Centre teaches classes that expound on the five main points of Kabbalah in order to help students better understand how Kabbalah can better their everyday lives. For instance, Kabbalah teaches that it’s important to balance one’s energy and remember that karma is real. The energy that one puts out into the world is the same energy that will return to him/her. Kabbalah also teaches that when people go out of their comfort zones to meet the needs of others, they will experience the peace and positivity that comes with being considerate. Kabbalah teachings also help students to understand that the ego can be dangerous. The ego is the negative energy in a person that motivates emotions like anger, fear, immaturity and close-mindedness. Once people are aware of their ego, they can learn to balance negative emotions and become their best selves.

The Kabbalah Centre also provides a store where students can purchase helpful materials that will make teachings easier to understand. There are also several practical and stylish products at the store, such as calendars and meditation cards. Mobile apps are available as well for individuals who want to learn more about Kabbalah while on the go. More information is available at www.kabbalah.com
