Securus scoops award for outstanding customer service

Securus Technologies, a leading provider of inmate communications services, has made it to the final 3 contenders for the 2017 Stevie Awards. This high honor is conferred upon only the best actors across American business. Competing with thousands of entrants, Securus has secured a final spot, meaning they will walk away with at least a Bronze Award. This remarkable achievement is a vindication, of sorts, for the strategy that its management began pursing in the early 2000s of intensely focusing on the research and development of new technologies that would add value to Securus’ entire customer base.



The yin and yang of the customer base


Securus is in an interesting and unique position as a business. They serve two groups of customers who are often at perfect opposition with one another. The guards and prisoners often have interests that are so directly conflicting that it would not be unfair to characterize them as enemies. Despite this inherent duality in its mission to serve its customers, Securus views both groups not just as stakeholders, but as its primary clients. Securus has resolved this paradox by focusing on maximizing value for all parties.


One example of this is their video visitation system. Securus, through careful analysis, created a system that addressed all the concerns of inmates while also enhancing the capabilities of guards. Inmates were very concerned about the cost of a phone call. But they were also worried about not being able to see their families. Video visitation addressed both these concerns, slashing per-minute costs and permitting almost unlimited face time with family and friends for inmates.


At the same time their full security and monitoring suite has allowed guards to monitor conversations and control the flow of illicit information like never before. Through solutions like this, Securus has finally begun to gain some of the recognition it so richly deserves.

Donald Scott NYC has recently been at the forefront of developing the latest technologies in straight razors and other forms of razors that offer the latest in hairdressing options using razors.

The Philanthropy of George Soros

Billionaire Investor George Soros has been known for years for being a leading funder of Democratic politics. For years Soros has given generously to political causes but he had scaled back quite a bit in recent years. The 2016 election is the first time Soros has been noted as giving large amounts of money since his incredible gift of 27 million dollars to the Bush campaign back in 2004. Soros has donated or committed more than $25 million to help Hillary Clinton and other Democratic candidates during this most recent election, according to Federal Election Commission records on

An 85 year old native New Yorker, has had a friendship with Clinton for nearly two and a half decades. This friendship has allowed Soros to be more involved and engaged in the political process than he has in years. Furthermore his fear of Donald Trump, who he describes as ‘doing the work of ISIS’ on, further helped to motivate Soros to get involved in this past election. Michael Vachon, Soros’s advisor, described his boss as a consistent donor who was more involved than normal. This was already set up to be a big election because of the hostility on the other side toward many of the issues George cares most about at. With Trump in the mix, the stakes are exceptionally high to Soros.

Through June of last year, George Soros had given more than $7 million to a super PAC supporting Clinton called Priorities USA Action. Records also Soros gave as much as $2 million to American Bridge 21st Century, a group opposed to trump and other republicans.

Although George Soros’s donations have been smaller in recent years, he is a well known supporter of the Democratic cause. He has supported Barack Obama throughout both of his terms in the White House. It should be safe to assume we will hear more from Soros in the 2020 election.

Thor: a Rising Star

Thor Halvorssen may not be a household name, but he is quickly becoming more recognized. The native Venezuelan is quickly establishing himself as a champion of human rights. He has helped give a voice to those who do not have one through various media outlets. Thor is becoming a renowned writer as he has published many articles, stories, and opinion pieces through many media outlets including popular newspaper agencies and magazine companies.

His films often depict struggles of human nature and give a greater voice in reaching a larger audience and awareness of human suffrage.

Thor has also founded or been a part of several foundations and organizations that are also dedicated to human rights advocacy. He is currently President of the Human Rights Foundation, which strives to help in human rights.

Thor has a vast background founded in a well rounded education from both schooling and his parents. He attended the University of Pennsylvania where he graduated in Political Science and History.

Thor also learned from his parents how to advocate for human rights as they both nearly lost there lives in trying to do what is right to ease human suffrage. His mother was shot at a peace rally when armed guards opened fire in Venezuela on an unarmed crowd. His father was imprisoned and tortured under suspicion of terrorism in Columbia when really he was trying to combat cartel drug trafficking.

Thor is quickly establishing himself as a voice for others less fortunate. As a film producer, perhaps one day he will do a story on his own life and the changes he has helped bring about.
