Why Securus Technologies is Helping Prevent Crimes

When our city was in the middle of its most violent year ever, we knew that me and my fellow officers had to step up our efforts and put a stop to what was behind the rise in activity. What we discovered was one person was going on a crime spree without any concern for the safety of our citizens. Not only was he breaking into stores and stealing cars, he had moved up his efforts to breaking into homes.

 

Without any regard for the people who were in the houses being robbed, we needed to find anyone with information about the location of our suspect. It was clear he was going from safe house to safe house, but we were always one step behind the intelligence we were getting. It appeared he also had a network of friends feeding the police misinformation so that we were always in reaction mode and never in front of the trouble.

 

On a trip to the local prison, one officer informed us Securus Technologies installed a call monitoring system in the jail that was helping them to tighten up security throughout the facility. Once we discovered the LBS software could listen to the inmates unique conversations and spot certain verbiage, we knew we had the tool that would break this case wide open. It didn’t take long for the alerts to come it about inmates speaking directly about our suspect.

 

Even though these inmates are very crafty about what they are saying, what the system was doing was allowing us to connect the dots as far as his network of family and friends. We were able to locate a whole crew of closer friends he was using each night before the crimes, and waited until he arrived back to one of those locations right after a crime was committed and arrested him.

Sheldon Lavin Receives The Global Visionary Award While OSI Group Receives Global Of Honor Award

Sheldon Lavin has a career in the food industry which he began more than 43 years ago. Before entering the food industry, he was an investor and executive in the banking industry. Sheldon owned a financial consulting firm.

In the food industry, he became the chairman and CEO of the OSI Group; he transformed the burger supplier into a worldwide supplier of a variety of food products.

The OSI group comprises of OSI Industries, OSI international foods in U.S and OSI International Inc. in charge of the Group’s foreign investments. With almost 2,000 employees, Sheldon Lavin is proud of the group’s employees and the corporate culture in the workplace. As Sheldon Lavin notes, the culture in OSI Group is unique and family oriented. The group experiences a very low turnover as they have put employees to be the most important part of the business.

Lavin’s journey in the meat industry started in 1970 when he arranged to finance for the then Otto & Sons Company. The firm had a chance to build a meat processing unit and become the largest supplier of hamburgers to McDonald’s Corporation in Midwest. They could not build the facility by themselves; they needed financing through the help of Lavin. The bank invited Lavin to have an ownership position at Otto. He declined the offer at first since he did not practice such dealings in his consulting practice. Sheldon Lavin later agreed to act as a Consultant and set the caveat with Otto and Sons. He did not enter the business relationship as partners, but his investment had the same degree of leverage.

During his time in OSI group, Sheldon Lavin was presented with a Global Visionary Award on February 20, 2016. The award which he received from India’s vision world academy was as a result of his incredible accomplishments in OSI group. The company has received health management, safety risks, environmental and sustainability awards during Lavin’s leadership.

Among them are the 2016 Globe of Honor Award by British safety council. The award was received due to the environmental risk strategies of the company. The award was present on November 25, 2016, in London. Lavin hopes that the next generation of corporate leaders will continue to prioritize on environmental sustainability.

Desiree Perez and Roc Nation Look for New Deal

Desiree Perez and Jay Z of Roc Nation have a heck of a decision to make in the coming months. Jay Z had locked in his company, Roc Nation, to a huge ten year contract with the company Live Nation. The deal paid Jay Z a hefty $150 million and made him one of the largest business moguls in the hip hop game. With the ten year ‘360 Deal’ coming to a culminating it means that Jay Z and his team are ready to start negotiating again. Live Nation and Jay Z have both gone under big changes over the past decade and that could mean a huge change for both parties.  More of this on pagesix.com.

Preliminary talks between Live Nation and the Jay Z camp have been relatively fruitless at this point. Live Nation wants to move away from recorded music in studios but that is a huge aspect, obviously, of what Jay Z and Roc Nation are trying to do. Live Nation is reportedly still interested in representing Jay Z’s touring businesses but that could mean dramatically altering the deal. It only makes sense that Perez and Jay Z would want to go ahead and try out different contracts.  Check igstars.com for related article.

Grainge is the Chairman and CEO at Universal Music Group and a sit down meeting between the two parties is pretty clearly a big deal, more of this on saltylens.com.  Still, UMG has been pretty hush about the topics of the meeting only saying that they are enjoying a ‘fruitful relationship’ with Jay Z. However, this doesn’t mean that Jay Z and Desiree Perez are ready to sign any deals any time soon. We’ll see when Jay and his team are ready and not before.  For update on Dez recent timeline activities, click crunchbase.com.

Two Ways to Reform Injustice

Founded in 1979, the National Immigration Act (NILC) is an association of legal advisers, which campaigns for the protection and promotion of rights and opportunities for settlers living on low wages and their families in the United States.

It is an important candidate of major objectives in the areas of government policy and changes in the promotion of work and revision of the Immigration Law.

NILC supports national and adjacent agreements in favor of the blending of the cultures. It fights to ensure that the privileges are not subject to partiality at the hand of elected officials and the government’s approach in reference to immigrants is fair.

The NILC promotes a universal vision of tolerance, in which every individual, is treated with decency by their fellow man. All races, genders, classes and nationalities in the U.S. should have equal access to education, state benefits and career opportunities, so that each can each live fully capable lives.

NILC is able to raise hundreds of thousands of dollars annually, to support their cause. Jim Larkin and Mike Lacey have raised the awareness of specific politicians in certain dealings and in doing so, may influence the decision of the reform of certain laws.

With such great strategies towards progress, it is no wonder the NILC is making such an impact on the political world, in favor of migrants.

October 18, 2007, the two patron editors of the Phoenix New Times and Village Voice Media were removed from their homes in the middle of the night and sent to jail. After the presence of proceedings before a grand jury to discover clues on an article of the journalists that criticized Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio, a crucial decision was made. Unlikely as it may sound, this unfortunate turn of events birthed La Frontera Group.

Both Jim and Michael were determined after being taken illegally out of their homes. They followed the unwarranted arrests with a lawsuit against the police in the Maricopa area. They ended up as the winners, forcing their offenders’ headquarters, the police department , to go along with the wishes of the United States Court of Appeals.

A settlement of $ 3,750,000 was made out to the victims of Arpaio’s heinous act. This solution to a much smaller conflict would bring about the creation of the beginning of the the organization known as the La Frontera Fund.

Spearheaded by two dynamic journalists who specialize in socio-political issues, the desired results would be the same, but the approach, much different. Other organizations concerned with immigration rights would join the visionaries on their quest for the justice of immigrants.

What is so unique about La Frontera group, is how they intend to resolve the matter at hand. For example, when the state of Texas limited access to abortion specialists, not only did La Frontera donate out of pocket to each pregnancy case individually, but they also funded a holistic alternative to the clinics that were once so popular in urban Texas.

Groups and Organizations that Protect Civil Liberties

While the president has done his best to find fault in his neighbors and depict those of race and color as being responsible for this problem and that issue, this is not a perspective shared with the rest of the country or the world. The fact is that many forward-thinking people are gathering together and committing their time resources and experience to building a better world. Learn more about Jim Larkin: http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/relevant-links/

Most of these are non-profit organizations comprised of volunteers from all backgrounds of race, religion and social strata guided by a love for their world and human-kind. Following is a listing of some of the major organization s in operations throughout the US today, that work to protect the rights that make humans free and create a better future.

The Lacey and Larkin Border Fund

The Lacey and Larkin Border fund was founded to provide needed funding for the many human and civil liberties groups working in the Southwest and especially in Arizona. Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey are the founders of two periodicals the “Village Voice” and the “Phoenix New Times” and received a large negotiated compensation. The proceeds they dedicated to supporting those that work to defend civil liberties in the area and has not gone unappreciated

Border Angels

The Border Angels are a non-profit advocacy group that works from California to Texas protecting the rights and civil liberties of those that drop in across the southern border. Volunteer Border Angels often have a background in civil and immigration law and work to promote reforms in immigrations processing. Read more: Phoenix New Time and Village Voice Media | Wikipedia

Furthermore, the Border Angels provide various seminars and frequent programs that raise awareness of the situation and the need for a change in policy. Many of these educational seminars are based in the San Diego area.

Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights

Children from across the world flood into the US each year and sadly many come without parents or providers and face a harsh reality of being destitute in the biggest cities in the US. The good news is that the Young Center for Immigrant Children’s Rights and a few other groups work to defend these children and provide for them as well.

There is a special program available in many of the larger US cities that allows a caring individual to take a troubled youth under their wing and provide guidance, advice and friendship to a young person new in our country. If you have the time and resource, look up your local aid groups to see if there is something you can do

The Coalition for Humane Immigrant Rights of Los Angeles (CHIRLA)

CHIRLA is a group of dedicated volunteers that protect the right and liberties of refugees and migrants from all across the world. Many of these people end up in the Los Angeles Area and this is where the volunteers from CHIRLA can apply their skills and resources to giving them a better life.

As a premiere advocacy groups, CHIRLA also fights for needed reforms in immigrations laws.

Roc Nation to Split From Live Nation

Over the past 10 years, one of the most dominating teams in the music industry has been the joint venture created by Jay-Z and Live Nation. Jay-Z is well known for being one of the most successful musicians and music producers of all time and Live Nation is well known for being the go-to option for booking music venues and planning tours. The deal, which paid Jay-Z over $150 million over a 10 year period, will not be extended.  Check pagesix.com for additional article.

While the deal has been very successful for all parties involved, it appears that all sides are looking to go in different directions. Live Nation has stated that they would like to continue to work with Jay-Z when it comes to touring and event planning, but the company will no longer be interested in producing music. This agreement will include all acts that fall under Jay-Z’s company, Roc Nation, which includes Fat Joe, Shakira, and Rhianna.

The decision came within the last few weeks and was led largely by Jay-Z’s business manager Desiree Perez. Desiree Perez is well regarded as being one of the best businessman in the music industry. For update on Dez recent timeline activities, click crunchbase.com.  She has been very involved in the growth and development of Roc Nation, which has become one of the best producers in the industry and has helped several musicians reach stardom.

Now that the contract with Live Nation is reaching an end, Desiree Perez will be looking for other options. This could include coming up with a new limited agreement with Live Nation, but will also include shopping their business to other companies as well. The general thought is that Roc Nation could get an even better deal if they start from scratch with a new company. This is largely due to the success that they have had in developing new artists.
