New Drone Detecting Technology Created By Securus Technologies

Securus Technologies does not stop creating and patenting new technological advancements in the safety and security field and this latest technology is being implemented in trial runs to keep the skies clear of drones over penal facilities. Drone detection technology is steadily becoming a growing need in the penal systems as outside parties try more and more to deliver contraband such as drugs and cell phones to inmates inside the facilities for distribution. This technology works through a digital antenna structure similar to Securus’ Wireless Containment System. So far tests of the new system have been very effective in blocking drones from reaching their prospective targets.

 

This latest technology has been 18 months in the making and Securus has stated that the drone detection technology has been improving with every testing of the equipment. Securus has partnered with several outside companies in the engineering involved with the drone detection software and weakness are being fixed quickly. Securus Technologies is headquarter in a new state of the art building in Dallas, Texas. Securus Technologies provides safe inmate communications services to 1,200,000 inmates on a daily basis as well as provides safety and security services to 3500 facilities across the nation. Securus specializes in these areas: government pay services, biometric analysis, emergency response, information management, incident management, safety and security systems, inmate self service, and investigation.

Meet Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey: As co-founders of the Phoenix New Times, they have had important things to about the former Maricopa County sheriff, Joe Arpaio

Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey have first-hand experience — and scathing opinions to boot — about Joe Arpaio, a political figure who was the former sheriff of Maricopa County, which is located in Arizona. Joe Arpaio — who U.S. District Judge, Susan R. Bolton formally validated as having being pardoned by President Donald Trump in 2017 — brought the law down on Larkin and Lacey a little more than a decade earlier.

Under Lacy and Larkin’s tutelage at Phoenix New Times, they uncovered and exposed — rather profusely — many scandals involving Sheriff Joe Arpaio. Some of these scandals exposed important abuses and unconstitutional actions involving Joe Arpaio during his 24-year reign as Maricopa County’s sheriff.

Judge Susan Bolton’s ruling brought closure to the final chapter of the Sheriff Arpaio chronicle, which, over ten years ago, involved the arrest of Michael Lacy, co-owner of the Phoenix New Times, and fellow co-owner, Jim Larkin.

Both men were taken from their homes in cuffs on October 18, 2007, by sheriff’s detectives in plainclothes.

Both Larkin and Lacey were noted to have been charged with misdemeanors for revealing grand jury secrets published in an article by the Phoenix New Times.

The law that they were charged with breaking involved an existing order that protects the reputations of the accused in a court of law.

However, the arrests of Larkin and Lacey received a large public outcry almost immediately. The level of outrage over both men’s arrests was felt across both political and cultural spectrums.

Less than 24 hours after being arrested, Lacey and Larkin’s arrests were addressed at a news conference held by Andrew Thomas, the then acting attorney of Maricopa County, Arizona.

Attorney Thomas noted that the arrests of Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin were improper, and that the case be closed. As a result of these inappropriate arrests made by Arpaio’s detectives, Lacey and Larkin sued. The board of supervisors voted to award them a $3.75 million settlement in the latter part of 2013.

The $3.75 settlement voted on by the board of supervisors regarding Larking and Lacey’s suit was seen an paltry compared to the lawsuit, Melendes v. Arpaio. This current court case has been noted to have cost Maricopa County citizens $70 million. And that number tally was based on current legal costs as of November, 2017.

Once college dropouts of Arizona State University, Michael Lacy and Jim Larkin seized upon a campus paper – born out of the vitriol over four Kent State University killings – which they ended up turning into a coast-to-coast franchise.

With Larkin as CEO of Village Voice Media, and Lacy as the executive director, they worked out a deal to sell off the franchise to Voice Media Group in 2013. At its apex, Village Voice Media consisted of 17 publications, which included its New York City moniker.

Ronald Fowlkes’s Love of Law Enforcement and Hockey

Ronald Fowlkes is a former member of the United States Military. From 1989-1993 he served in the Marines and then went on to provide assistance in government contracting. He later went on to serve in a couple of police departments in the St. Louis area. He is now a leader among FireSpear, a company that produces military grade gear and equipment for local law enforcement.

 

Fowlkes is the Manager of Business of Development at Eagle Industires, the parent company of FireSpear. Fowlkes says he first heard about the company during his time spent in the military: all of the highest quality gear he wore was made by them. It was due to Fowlkes’ involvement in military and law enforcement that made it possible for him to join the team at FireSpear.

 

FireSpear creates the highest quality and most trusted vests, helmets, holsters, among other things.

 

During an interview Fowlkes was asked about his favorite book that has influenced his career and Fowlkes recommended “Lone Survivor” by Marcus Luttrell. The book goes into detail about several struggles by the military community to maintain the freedoms of the American citizens.

 

In the interview, Fowlkes was asked about the future of his industry. Fowlkes expressed interest in moving towards a lighter piece of gear that doesn’t sacrifice purpose and quality. He says that their plan is to provide its clients with the highest quality possible and to do that they must continue to innovate.

 

Even though Fowlkes and FirstSpear do trade shows and participate in marketing plans, he says that their number one way of gaining clients is through word of mouth. When a police officer trusts his life with one of FirstSpear’s pieces of equipment, he wants to keep his friends and partners safe as well. If the product is good, people will advertise for you.

 

Fowlkes has other interests as well. To conclude the interview he said that he enjoys coaching a young hockey league in his home down. Fowlkes also writes news posts about the NHL and other hockey games on his personal blog.

 

At the beginning of the year, Fowlkes briefly spoke about major news in the sports world: North Korea and South Korea were teaming up for the Winter Olympics. For the first time since the two countries split, went to war, then enter into one of the longest cease-fires in history, North and South Korea are cooperating. Even if it is only a hockey game, this is major news for diplomacy between the two Koreas.

 

Daniel Taub Visits a United Kingdom City

The United Kingdom and Israel have a long history of international cooperation. Many United Kingdom officials have supported the Jewish state.

However, recently relations between the two states have become a bit strained. This is in part to remarks by a local official in Great Britain. George Galloway is the MP for the Bradford West area. In one speech, Galloway called Bradford an “Israel free zone.”

It is understandable that Israeli officials and others responded with great alarm. One person who felt completely alarmed at his remarks is Daniel Taub. As a high official in the Israeli government, he understandably sought to investigate this part of the United Kingdom.

Daniel Taub wants to show that Israel regards such remarks with deep seated concern. He and his fellow Israelis have sought to reach out to the community of Bradford. In an effort to find out how locals feel, Daniel Taub decided to come visit Bradford and speak to locals.

His decision to spend time here came about after he was invited by officials in the community. He wanted to see for himself what area community members are thinking about Israel even after Galloway’s ill considered commentary about their community.

The Real Voice

He spend time in the city walking around. In doing so, he received a vastly different impression than might be gleaned by the comments of Galloway. As he strolled the streets here, he had the chance to interact with people from all walks of life. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.daniel-taub.co.il/ and http://www.behance.net/danieltaub

While there was tight security during his visit, this did not prevent him from going away with a highly favorable impression of the residents here. His goal is to help promote inclusion with all residents here no matter their religion or ethnic origins.

As a result of his visit here, he is confident that Israelis and residents of Bradford can work together in the future to help overcome any misconceptions that might exist about either place. In his opinion all conflicts are not between religious sects in the Middle East.

Instead, he believes they are as a result of those who cling to the past and those who embrace the future. He hopes to do more to reach out to those who agree with him about the need to move forward in the area as relations change and nations grow. He also hopes to help promote a sense of partnership between the two communities.

Inside the World of Hassain Sajwani

Few individuals in the Arab world have been as phenomenally successful as Hussain Sajwani, otherwise known fondly as, “the Donald of Dubai,” indeed he has not just been one of the single most successful men in the Middle East, but he has also had one of the most varied careers in the whole of the modern real-estate industry. Read more: Hussain Sajwani | Celebfamily and The Rise and Rice of Damac

Mr. Sajwani was fortunate to have a industrious father who instilled in him a interest in the world of business from a very early age.

After moving from his father’s imported goods shop, Hussain Sajwani moved into the field of oil and gas by garnering a job with Abu Dhabi Gas Industries whilst he was simultaneously working towards a degree at the University of Washington in the United States of America; a monumental task of plate-spinning for even the exceedingly industrious.

After leaving Abu Dhabi Gas Industries Sajwani set about taking the business skills he had learned from the industry and incorporate those skills with what he had learned in America to create his own company, a food delivery enterprise geared towards military personnel.

Later, in 2002, Sajwani would create the company DAMAC properties, for which he is, perhaps, best known today.

DAMAC was a real-estate company which utilized new laws emergent in the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia to market almost exclusively to foreigners and in short order the company was listed on the London Stock Exchange (the first ever Middle Eastern real-estate company to be thus listed).

More recently, Mr. Sajwani has received a good deal of press in western publication for his close working relationship and friendship with former real-estate mogul, reality television star and current President of the United States, Donald J. Trump.

Hussain Sajwani and Donald Trump first began their business relations in 2013 (before he was elected as president) to create two massive TRUMP brand golf courses.

Mr. Sajwani currently lives with his family in the Dubai with his loyal wife and four children.
