Securus Lays Bare The Rotten Potatoes in Industry

Businesses should rise above the desire to make money to providing service to the society. It gets even worse when a business fuels that which it is its business to contain. This basically condemns the business to an enemy of its very client. This is what Securus intends to portray when it prepares to release additional reports on GTL over the next six months. Securus morality stand compels it to shame the carrier into acting with higher integrity.

In a Press Release on Securus Website, the company, a leading provider of civil and criminal justice technology solutions for public safety, corrections, investigation and monitoring announced release of multiple reports implicating Global Tel Link (GTL) to wrongdoings and integrity breaches by the inmate communications provider. And according to PR Newswire to get a feel of what Securus has in store over the matter, Securus actually presented the first in its series of articles to be published.

The Chief Executive Officer of Securus America Technologies, Richard Smith expressed passion for the industry of service to law enforcement, corrections, inmates and to the general society. As such, he takes offense in a situation where a career compromises on its duty to integrity at the chagrin of the rest of the industry. According to Smith, Securus’ business mission goes beyond making money to serving customers interests.

  • GTL maliciously programmed clocks in their telephones at correctional institutions, adding either 15 or 36 seconds to each call’s duration.
  • GTL artificially inflated charges to its customers
  • GTL engaged in billing a single call more than once

These and other gross misconducts by the company are unacceptable in the industry.

Understanding The Benefits Of Assisted Living Facilities

An assisted living center is a long-term senior housing community that provides support services such as bathing, dressing, meals, transportation and access to medical services.

Typically, base rates for these facilities cover room and board and daily meals and are determined by the assisted center. Sometimes there residents are charged deposits, entrance fees, housekeeping and laundry fees. Since these all vary by facility or community, it is advisable to inquire about each community’s services and costs.

For many families, the benefits are plenty. Their loved ones receive proper supervision provided by professional caregivers, and senior care experts. Unlike nursing homes, which can seem very impersonal and institutionalized at times, assisted living facility seems to be the best option for many elderly people.

Michael Zomber: Historical Genius and Philanthropist

There is something special about those who go into the antique business, and Michael Zomber is one of those people. Zomber spends his time collecting and selling antique items, specifically arms from between the 1500s and the 1800s. Most important to Zomber when it comes to antique weaponry is not necessarily the amount of money that can be obtained by the items, but instead the historical value.

Zomber has extensive knowledge spanning much of the old weaponry of America, Europe, Japan, and the Islamic faith. His biography states that he prefers dealing with those who have a similar desire to protect history as he does.

In addition to his work in the world of antique arms, Zomber has been involved in the creation of multiple films. One of these films in particular, Soul of the Samurai, is a documentary movie that he worked on. Not only was he involved in the film’s set design and props, he also did quite a bit of writing and researching for the script. He even worked on the movie project with the deceased yet well-known Buddhist master Kensho Furuya.

As a man with a vast amount of knowledge in regard to history, Zomber has also written several historical novels of his own. One is Shogun Iemitsu: War and Romance in 17th Century Tokugawa Japan, an educational text about Japanese culture, weaponry, and the samurai. Another short novel he published around the same time goes by the name Sweet Betsy That’s Me: A Child of the Civil War. This piece saw the Civil War through the eyes of a young Kentucky girl, and was part of a trilogy.

Lastly, Zomber tops off his successes and antique genius by being actively involved in charity. For the most part, he donates to organizations dedicated to peace and love toward others, such as antiwar.com, the Global Exchange, Disabled American Veterans, and The Smile Train. He and his wife, Andrea, team up to give to these endeavors.

They live together with their children in Philadelphia.

Yeonmi Park Recounts Her Story

Yeonmi Park is a young woman who was born in 1993. What makes her a unique individual is not only that she is a North Korean defector, but also the fact that she is a young and female human rights activist who wants to prevent what happened to her. Yeonmi Park was born in North Korea in a prominent and well respected family. Though Ms. Park remembers receiving many privileges in her position, she remembers how the family’s luck had changed in the late 1990s when the economy in North Korea collapsed. As a result of this misfortune, Ms. Park’s father was forced to become involved in smuggling in order to make a living. Though food was provided for the family, eventually Ms. Park’s father was discovered and was thrown sentenced to a labor camp.
The story of Yeonmi Park’s travels are all now documented in her book called In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom (http://www.amazon.com/In-Order-Live-Journey-Freedom/dp/1594206791). This book discuses all the starvation and isolation that her and her mother experienced which eventually encouraged them to flee North Korea. Yeonmi Park recounts her story on NK News of paying off one of the guards by the border in order to get through. In this book, Ms. Park also is able to communicate her experience as well as her hatred with human trafficking that she became involved with as they were fleeing to China. This particular experience is what influenced Ms. Park to become a human rights activist.

Yeonmi Park (see wikipedia), ever since a young age, has been finding a new home. Ms. Park fled the North Korean border in 2007 and has since then been finding ways to teach how abusive her former country is to their citizens. Her current goal is the unite North Korean refugees and defectors to speak out against their former country. Yeonmi Park’s book also does well to explain details that are often lost in translation when she attempts to explain her story. “The book is worth the read” says a Daily Mail review, and will give a true and heart breaking account of the brutality that one country has given to millions.

Venezuela Reaches Improved Oil-For-Loans Deal With China

Venezuela has recently been featured by Linked In, dealing with an economic crisis as its government is burdened with debt payments that it is struggling to make. China is the country’s main lender and has provided over $50 billion in loans during the last decade. One of the deals that was put in place between the two countries involved an oil-for-loans agreement. It involves Venezuela sending millions of barrels of crude oil each year to China as payment for much-needed loans.
This deal may have worked fine before says expert Manuel Gonzalez, but has run into trouble last year, as oil prices have fallen sharply. Venezuela has also been dealing with declining oil production due to lack of foreign currency to repair and maintain equipment.

Despite having the largest reserves of crude oil in the world, Venezuela’s economy has declined by around 6 percent in 2015. Economic troubles have led to shortages of electricity and food. Now that the country has been able to improve the conditions of its oil-for-loans deal with China, the government is hoping that it will be able to put its economy back on the right track. According to Venezuelan Economy Vice President Miguel Perez, this agreement will give Venezuela the “oxygen” it needs to move forward.

Renegotiating the deal with China is part of Venezuela’s efforts to come out of its economic problems. Other measures taken include cutting down imports and implementing a weaker foreign exchange rate.

 

Human Rights Activist Yeonmi Park Shares Story Of Hope

Human rights activist and author of Amazon released book In Order To Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey To Freedom Yeonmi Park never knew freedom existed while living in North Korea. All she knew is that she, her family, and many others were suffering under the brutal dictatorship of Kim Jung Il.

Like many others who were able to escape, the stories are all the same. Kim Jung Il ruled with an iron fist. You either went along or suffered the consequences. A number of people mysterious disappeared. Many were shot, imprisoned and even worse.

Yeonmi Park‘s story began at the tender age of 13. Her father – a government worker – was convicted of smuggling and sentenced to a brutal work camp. Once he reunited with his family, it was decided that leaving North Korea was no longer an option. Sadly, her father died of cancer before he could escape.

According to Park’s accounts, the human traffickers were just as bad as Kim Jung Il’s army. She and her mother suffered from starvation and subhuman treatment and sexual abuse while in their custody. It was only through sheer will power that she and her mother survived.

On a very cold night, Park and her mother were able to escape the trafficker and make their way through the freezing Gobi Desert. They also discovered that Kim Jung Il’s army was patroling the area. They finally reached the Chinese border where they were helped by missionaries. She never felt completely free until she and her mother made it to South Korea.

Thankfully, she was able to reunite with her sister, Eunmi, who was presumed dead after escaping before them. A few years after settling into life in South Korea, Park decided to devote her time to human rights issues. She felt obligated to help people who sharing the same ordeal.

Today, Park is an internationally known activist and frequently speaks out on New York Times about human rights issues and abuse.
