I Think Securus Is What We Needed All Along

Spiritual guidance is one of the most important things I think for prisoners, but I know that all of them are not going to run out and get a bible from the prison library on their first day. We are a spiritual center that tries to talk to prisoners about harnessing their energy for good things no matter what religion it is, and that is why I was glad that we found Securus. There are a lot of things that we have to talk to prisoners about, and it is a lot easier when we are looking at them in the face on a video monitor.

I actually set up big monitors in the office that are going to help us see them in a large scale, and we talk to them about how to use their personal energy for goods uses. I have talked to people about being spiritual while getting a college degree, and I have talked to people about harnessing their anger to help people instead of fighting. I know that people are using Securus because the calls are private, but I love is the fact that they are a video system. I get to talk to someone face to face about a way that they are going to really change their life.

I have talked to guys who have gotten out early for good behavior, and I have talked to guys who have been able to get educated, get ordained as ministers and even start charities the day they get out of jail.

Our spiritual guidance relies so much on Securus, but I love the way it works. They are helping us see our students in the flesh. They are showing us how to get the best results for every person by looking at them instead of struggling to hear on the phone.

You have more than likely been using Wikipedia for years and may not have realized that it can be used by the average company owner to get their business out there and more well known. You might have thought that Wikipedia was specifically meant for celebrities and other large corporations and not the average common small business owner.

The future of technology

Shaygan Kheradpir became the CEO of Juniper Networks in January 2014. Juniper Networks is a corporation based in Sunnyvale California, that develops networking software products. Mr. Shaygan Kheradpir is taking a no holds barred approach to running the firm. He believes in partnerships with a “ free from excuses” team of executives.

Before taking on his role as CEO of Juniper Networks, Kheradpir worked for several firms such as GTE Corporation. GTE merged with Bell Atlantic in the year 2000 to form Verizon. Verizon has gone on to become one of the largest telecommunications provider in the world. Shaygan Kheradpir on newsvine was an executive for Verizon for for eleven years serving as its CIO/CTO. While there, he led the company in developing new products and reduced company costs by thirty percent. Fios TV was one of the enhancements to technology that he led when he was with Verizon.

He moved on from there and became the COO/CTO at Barclays in 2013, a British banking corporation which is headquarter in London. While there, he led the beginning of Pingit, the new mobile service banking platform.

In an interview with ARN, Kheradpir talks about Juniper’s aspirations for the changing world and its technological needs and wants. He also stated that partners are a very important part of the team. They are out there in the field and understand what drives the customers transactions. Kheradpir spoke about the “cloud” and how so many companies with many different platforms are all heading in one direction which is building the cloud. Many customers already have their “cloud” systems in place but many are just in the beginning phases of building theirs. He and his company Juniper, will be there to assist in their endeavors. In five years from now the “cloud” will be the norm, but for now it needs to be nurtured. The nurturing comes in the form of a package for customers that does it all. No more piece mealing of parts. They do not want to purchase security, switches, routers and transports separately, they want it to be all included in a nice neat bundle. Kheradpir refers to Juniper as a “carrier class company.”

Although Mr. Kheradpir was born in London, he grew up in Iran and went to high school in Switzerland. He moved to the U.S. to attend Cornell University where he earned his bachelors, masters and doctorate in electrical engineering. He has held many positions on several corporate boards including the United States National Institute of Standards and Technology from 2010 to 2013. He served on the advisory board of the YMCA of greater New York from 2007 to 2010. He is also a member of the Cornell University Engineering Council.

Window Shopping A Whole New Way With Slyce

Who doesn’t love to go shopping? It just seems like after working a full shift and taking care of the kids and the house there is never any time. I often watch a show on television and see an outfit that I have got to have. I have a problem with coveting others things, but I guess that is what makes me unique; I love to copy other styles.

I was shopping at our local mall, and I saw a pair of shoes on a woman passing by that I had to have. I found myself alongside her and ask her about those shoes. She told me she got them at a thrift store but that they were expensive. She said she did some research and found that they were over $200. Ugh, I would have expensive taste. However, she told me that if I used the remote shopping app Slyce, I could find similar shoes in a great price. I had no clue what she was talking about; I had never heard of this app. Of course, there are 100’s of apps out there, and I knew I was going to check it out.

I found myself downloading the app in a matter of minutes. But I got a real education in how amazing our technology has really grown. With this app, all you do is take a picture of the item you want. This gracious woman lets me take a picture of her shoes. I scanned the picture into the app and instantly it brought up several matches just like these shoes. I not only found the really expensive ones, as they were Gucci, but it also brought me several pairs that were very similar and at better prices. It told me exactly where I could find them and showed me the best deal. Where has this app been my whole life?

It’s called image recognition shopping, and I am addicted. I can be at a flea market, milling around town and just take pictures of things I want. Like a helpful virtual friend, Slyce shows me all the places that I can get these products and the price ranges. It’s a whole new way to window shop that doesn’t require you ever to leave the house. I thought I would test Slyce out on their abilities. Right now it is a bit limited because it is dealing mostly with clothing items. They are working with several larger companies in North America to bring great items to the forefront of many people’s shopping lists. However, it is still a bit in its infancy, but with more than $10 million in funding for expansion, soon they will be helping companies across the world sell their products and help consumers find that item they cannot live without.
