Enhance Your Sports Experience

It’s so secret that most people like sports. People enjoy having a hometown team or alma mater to cheer for. Sports represent the peak of human athletic ability and are filled with suspense. Furthermore, everyone enjoys getting together with their friends, firing up the grill, and cracking open a few cold beers while watching the game. The passion for sports can become so strong that people will yell at the TV as though the players can hear the screaming. College basketball is one of the most popular sports during the year. In addition to people cheering for their alma mater, the March Madness tournament is one of the most exciting events of the year. In a 68 team single elimination tournament, it is the opportunity for everyone to fill out their bracket. People will enter their game-by-game predictions into competitions for huge cash prizes. While it has never happened, Warren Buffet has offered millions of dollars to anybody filling out a perfect bracket. Furthermore, people will also compete for cash prizes by placing bets on March Madness odds or on individual college basketball games.

Sports betting has become a major industry in the United States economy. Every game comes with a line. The “favored” team is predicted to win the game by a certain number of points. When placing a bet on the favored team, this team must win the game by more than the predicted number of points to win the bet. The lines are usually made by an extra half-point to prevent a push. In addition, the games also come with an over/under. This is a prediction of the total number of points scored. People taking the “over” win the bet if the total number of points scored exceeds the over/under. These lines are also made with an extra half-point to prevent a push.

There are many different ways for people to place bets on college basketball games. Sports betting in Las Vegas is probably the most well-known. For those looking to place bets on online sites, one of the most popular sites is Covers.com. Covers.com represents the highest quality sports betting experience. First of all, this site is secure.

The Future is Visual: How Slyce and Image Recognition Are Revolutionizing Consumerism

 

Much like anything else that defines humanity, humans take for granted their advanced vision and recognition. In everyday life, it’s unnecessary to think about why and how we function like we do. It’s autonomous. But hasn’t everyone looked at a shirt, a pair of shoes, a particularly nifty wrench, or anything else and wondered to themselves that they’d like one for themselves? Haven’t we all had a moment of disappointment when we hear the owner forgot where they bought it? Sure, consumers can take the time out to research but it takes time and effort that not everyone is willing to expend, especially when there is no guarantee they can actually find the exact product they’re looking for.

Well, necessity is the mother of invention.

Image recognition, according to TechCrunch, is revolutionizing the way people interact with technology. Developers have taken the time out to deconstruct not only the literal mechanics of sight but also the abstraction involved with taking information and doing something with it. Artificial computer intelligence is making leaps and bounds as research is poured into it, making it possible for a computer to see a red, round object and tell whether it’s a tomato or an apple. Of course, the process isn’t perfect. While Google has a great visual search tool for occasions where users don’t know what something is but want to find out, it is limited. Unless the picture they search already exists on the internet, images tends to go based on pixel colors or what the engine thinks the image might relate to.

Product recognition companies like Slyce have taken the time and initiative to meld the mechanics of image recognition with boundless information stored on Internet servers in a cohesive way. This technology figures out how to take the guesswork out of image recognition. Visual searching has revolutionized consumerism; it has both invented a mechanic to replicate the actual process of human recognition and removed the margin of error due to faulty individual recall. With a tool like the one Slyce offers, consumers have the luxury of seeing something they’re interested in and use their phone cameras in order to search a database that uses visual indicators in order to match up the object with a name and even somewhere they can purchase it.

Securus Points to Lapses in GTL’s Integrity

Securus Technologies has released their first in a series of exposes that highlights competitor Global Tel Link’s business practices which demonstrate breaches in their ability to serve clients to the best of their ability. The first of these reports goes all the way back to January 1998 and a report the Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC) compiled on GTL’s business practices.

The 17-page report chronicles GTL’s contract with the Louisiana Department of Corrections to establish outbound telecom services. In their investigation, Louisiana PSC found that GTL programmed clocks to add 15 or 36 seconds to the tail-end of each conversation to extend call times; telephones were programmed to rate calls higher than existing caps; and several calls were found to have been charged several times. These unauthorized practices were carried out by GTL for the purposes of increased billing. The Louisiana PSC found that GTL had overcharged the Louisiana Department of Corrections $1,243,000 in excess of authorized billing through their deliberate, unscrupulous business practices.

CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Smith stated that such companies do a disservice to the law enforcement agencies they provide tech solutions to when they place their bottom line above the needs of the client. The Louisiana PSC seems to agree with Smith’s position, as their report of GTL’s contract is pretty clear on their position concerning that company’s professionalism. But could that change with time?

GTL seems to be in clear violation of Smith’s principle of good business in communication when looking at their track record with the state of Louisiana back in the ’90s. But according to Smith these business practices are still part and parcel of how GTL does business with their clients. Over the course of the next six months, Securus plans to highlight more of GTL’s poor business practices by publishing them to their site. The first of which can be read here.

A Return to the Past is a Sign of A Promising Future At Goettl Air Conditioning

Most of the time when a company gets a buyout from an investor who is known for buying and flipping damaged firms for profit, and is faced with a negative rating from the BBB it’s a sign that dissolution and liquidation may not be far down the line, but that is not the case with Goettl and is not your regular investment entrepreneur. The difference is that Goettl has not only recovered from the dark times it had suffered in recent years, to the tune of 20 Million in revenue in 2014, but is on the verge of a major operational expansion and a return to a previous name that had become synonymous with quality and high standards so greatly that it was a household mainstay for those in the greater Las Vegas area. Another major difference is that Goodrich has a connection to Goettl that is much more than the company’s owner, for him is personal, deeply personal.
Goettl Air conditioning started out in 1939 in the Las Vegas area and became a popular choice for servicing of HVAC systems due to their high standards and expert professionalism. The company grew over the next few decades until the economic downturn and staffing changes brought about by retirements of the original employees led to an unfortunate decision to move to Arizona. Things didn’t get much better over the next couple of years and in December 2012 the firm was purchased in whole by Goodrich.
Goodrich is a man who is more than familiar with the HVAC business, his father was a HVAC technician and he has fond memories of growing up and helping his dad, often holding the flashlight when his father would have to go out on night calls to meet a customer’s needs. He has bought, sold and repaired more than 20 air conditioning companies over his career and made a fortune doing it, but with Goettl things are a little different. See when young Goodrich was helping his dad all those years ago it was a Goettl uniform that he was wearing.
Since Goodrich’s arrival on the scene Goettl AC which had been stunted by over rapid growth, a loss of more than 1/3 of its workforce and a senior staff that were not concerned with the health of the company as much as they were in their own paychecks has seen a rapid turnaround, and now in a signal to the return to the standards of quality and professionalism that the company had always stood for, Ken Goodrich has decided to turn the company back to its original name of Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen, citing that the decision to change it upon acquisition was not one that he would do again in hindsight.
New installation procedures have been initiated, standards for quality control have been put in place, and staff have been carefully curated to weed out the chaff including the company’s president. Among other terminations included the general manager, the service manager, and the operations manager, along with 17 others who had been described as “cronies” of the senior management, and bring in new recruits that are among the best technicians available for hiring, many right out of school. Now the company has 84 full-time staffers and operates a fleet of 58 vehicles, all of which are top of the line.
Company CEO and former owner Dan Burke was retained and has been assisting in the positive transition of the firm under the hand of Goodrich. Every major department has been revamped, streamlined and modernized all with quality and customer satisfaction in mind. Everything from IT to scheduling to QA checks on fished jobs old and new has been reimagined and has helped drive a new sense of moral and personal pride in the company among the employees.
Goettl Air conditioning, soon to be known once more as Goettl Good Guys Air Conditioning Repairmen has been serving customers in Arizona and Las Vegas for more than 75 years. It has been a standard bearer for the industry in the region and despite hard times has found a way back. It takes good people to turn around a company that has lost its focus, and that’s what Goettl has, great people. It’s safe to say also that with Ken Goodrich at the helm, driven by a passion for the industry and the desire to ensure that the name of a company that meant so much to his father is elevated once more, it will be around for many more generations.
