Facing America’s Health Issues Thru Architecture

     The Art and Science of Architecture are helping to solve some health issues America is facing today? Thanks to the foresight and vision of Robert Ivy, who is Chief Executive Officer of American Institute of Architects (AIA). The health issues of obesity, heart disease, and diabetes have faced the United States for several decades. Government statistics show a steady increase in obesity from 23% (1962) to 67% (2008). On the other hand, the cost of treating diabetes in the United States was at the height of 326 Billion in 2017. Robert Ivy hopes to change that for present and future Americans by changing the landscape of how Architects design buildings. Yes, Robert Ivy believes and is willing to quantify the facts that there is a direct correlation between health and the way buildings help improve the quality of health. More open spaces are needed in structures, which would allow tenants or office workers to utilize the public areas as paths to a more healthier life. Robert Ivy is recasting the old mantra of welfare to “well-being.” Ivy takes a more holistic approach to architecture and envisions the future of architecture to embody more diversity among the teams that plan and design buildings. As a consequence of more variety among team members, the diverse health needs of the tenant can be addressed and brought into the decision process before a building is set in stone. One of the ways architects can help promote the well-being and health of a community is to foster more spaces where tenants can walk and remain in open areas or climb steps for exercise.

Robert Ivy and AIA have a strong presence on Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram, which serves to spread its message. Robert Ivy and AIA frequently advocate for the future of American architecture in Washington, DC. AIA is confident that commercial construction to rise steadily in 2018 and 2019 by 4%, which offers architects plenty of opportunities to put these recommendations to effect.

Persevering corrections officer works with Securus Technologies to combat illegal cellphones

Robert Johnson had spent his first half decade after graduating from high school working a string of menial jobs. Never finding satisfaction, Johnson longed for something that he could passionately pursue and that would give his daily grind meaning. He considered going to college, but he was wary of the large amounts of debt that students need to incur just to get a degree that may or may not help them get a real job.

 

Then Johnson saw an advertisement for a local job fair. It was being put on by the Florida Department of Corrections. As a lifelong Florida resident, Johnson thought that being a prison guard would be fun and that it would also be a way to perform a valuable service for the community. He went to the fair and was quickly hired.

 

Johnson proved to be a natural at interacting with prisoners in a positive and respectful way. But he was also highly adept at stepping in to keep order when necessary. As someone with the right combination of personality traits, Johnson was able to rise through the ranks quickly. After a decade on the job, he had risen to one of the most prominent jobs in the FDOC.

 

As the leader of a special operations team called SERT, which handles the most dangerous situations in the prison system, Johnson was in charge of carrying out things like high-risk cell raids and the transport of high-profile prisoners. On one occasion, Johnson and his team were conducting a raid on a cell where a suspected drug trafficker was housed. Johnson personally uncovered a package that contained a large amount of powder.

 

Lab tests later revealed that the substance was almost pure heroine, with a prison value of up to $150,000. The drugs were intended for a powerful prison gang, to later be distributed throughout the prison system for profit. The gang’s leadership knew that Johnson was not the type of guard that could be either bribed or intimidated. Still, they wanted to send a message.

 

A few weeks later, as Johnson was preparing for work, a gunman stormed into his home, shooting him 6 times at almost point-blank range. Somehow, Johnson was able to survive. But he was left with severe disabilities and eventually was forced to quit his job.

 

It was later revealed that a gang leader, who was upset about the loss of the heroine, ordered the hit on Johnson over a contraband cellphone. Johnson was deeply upset by this because he knew that technology existed to contain illegal phones.

 

He would get a chance to do something about it when Securus Technologies contacted him to help promote their Wireless Containment System, a device that can block 100 percent of calls made from contraband cellphones. Now, Johnson travels the country on behalf of Securus, spreading the word about the WCS and preventing a similar fate from befalling his fellow officers.

 

Securus Technologies Keeping Contraband Phones Away From the Phones

Securus Technologies is a name that has been synonym with quality and innovation in the correctional sphere for a long time. The company offers many different types of services in the penitentiary field, including inmate communication services, parolee tracking system, kiosks, money transfer services, payment processing services for government agencies, and more. Securus Technologies is a company that has contributed tremendously to the correctional sector, and it recently announced that it has come up with the most potent and efficient wireless containment system. It is a contraband interdiction technology, which would be helpful in keeping the contraband phones away from the prison.

 

The prison facilities are known to have struggled for years to keep contraband phones away from the prison, but it is a problem that continues to exist. Securus Technologies has been trying for years to develop a technology that would help the correctional facilities to keep the contraband phones away, and now it has finally rolled out wireless containment solution after years of research. The company has invested $40 million into developing wireless containment solutions and is committed to spending more as needed. The company has years of experience in dealing with the security issues that the correctional sphere faces. It is this experience of providing the security and investigative solutions for over three decades that has helped the company to develop highly advanced contraband interdiction technology.

 

The use of contraband phones in the correctional facilities has been increasing lately, and the correctional facilities have not been able to find a way to contain it. A video was taken inside the penitentiary facility recently viral online, which made the correctional facilities worry about its security. Many inmates use contraband phones to communicate with the outside world as it is cheaper, but it is also illegal, and such unauthorized communication can make the community unsafe as well. One of the corrections officers, Robert Johnson, was shot six times by a criminal inside his home through a hit ordered using a contraband phone. It left the entire nation shocked and also led to the questions been raised about how secure the correctional facilities are.

 

Securus Technologies has invested a lot of money into developing the contraband interdiction technology. In the eight facilities it has been tried so far, the wireless containment system was able to stop over 1.7 million illegal communication. The company has invested more than $40 million into developing the wireless containment system and continues to spend more on ensuring that the technology is updated and upgraded. Securus Technologies believes that the use of contraband phones inside the prison should be stopped by all means, and is committed to going all the way to ensure that the community and correctional facilities are safe and secure.

Biography And Work Of Visium Jacob Gottlieb

Jacob Gottlieb, the American investor and hedge fund manager, is known as Chief Investment Officer at New York-based Visium Asset Management, LLC, which he established in 2005. He was born in New York in a family of Polish immigrants who came to the United States in the 1960s. His both parents were educated and highly intelligent people.

Striving for knowledge and constant growth Jacob completed an internal medicine internship, which took place at St. Vincent’s Hospital (New York City).

Later he took a position of an investment portfolio manager at Merlin Financial in London, England. Taking risks has always fascinated Jacob and he compared fund manager’s work to that of a surgeon, where only one wrong move or decision can lead to irreparable consequences.

Talk Fusion Is Becoming Even More Usable Across Multiple Devices

It began with a program that allowed the user to make a video and send it to an email recipient, but now it’s turned into a multipurpose chatroom and video livestreaming software solution. As use in mobile devices and tablets has increased, Talk Fusion has adapted their system to match what those device users have needed and there’s several reasons they’ve been able to do this. They’ve had a company app designed that accommodates both Android and iPhone users while including other Windows and Apple-based devices, but for regular computer users their service works on any browser. In fact when you use any one of Talk Fusion’s software products, it opens right up in your browser and doesn’t need any big downloads or plugins that could slow your computer down. Bob Reina, the CEO of Talk Fusion says the company is all about taking the lead and investing in the future of video communication while continuing to help businesses and individual use video to make their message clear.

 

Bob Reina began this company back in 2007 when he was looking for a way to make sending videos through email possible. The idea had come to him just three years before and became a business idea he believed could make multilevel marketing more effective than ever if he used it right (vhttps://www.engadget.com/2016/12/02/does-the-talk-fusion-app-live-up-to-the-hype/). Reina had had a history in multilevel marketing with most of his previous endeavors not quite working out as long-term as he had hoped, but he believed in the success of that model and believed Talk Fusion allowed him to implement it perfectly. And Reina has said he likes hearing the stories of Talk Fusion associates because their success is what the company depends on.

 

There’ve been several developments over the years that Reina has announced in free trials and Talk Fusion University. Customers are able to signup for full use of Talk Fusion’s products for 30 days through the free trials, and they only need an email address with no credit card information to do so. Associates have used different methods for marketeting Talk Fusion products to new customers, but Reina decided to offer even more pointers to spread the message of Talk Fusion. He helped start Talk Fusion University, a free video course where he displays on video how to go through each product and deliver selling points to customers. Reina is also a video technology news writer for MarTech Advisor and the HuffPost.
