Betsy DeVos’ Generous Philanthropy

Oncotarget Studies E-Cigarette Usage

Ifran Rahman has completed a study contesting the legitimacy of e-cigarettes being healthier than traditional cigarettes. What was the outcome? Well, it wasn’t so positive. It has been scientifically proven that e-cigs much like regular cigarettes are also detrimental to your health. Specifically when the vapors come in to contact with the gums. The vapors release inflammatory proteins that irritate gum cells at the molecular level. It was also found that the flavoring chemicals play a part in negatively effecting the health of gums. To add on to the negative impacts, e-cigs also contain nicotine which is also found in regular cigarettes. This is a highly addictive substance that also plays a part in leading to various forms of oral disease. On one hand it is terrible that e-cigs cause such outcomes, on the other hand it is even worse that many people hold the false impression that they are a healthier alternative to regular cigarettes. As people continue to unknowingly consume e-cigs while putting a false identity to them the cumulative damage will only continue to add up. It doesn’t help that e-cigs have been growing in popularity at a tremendous rate since inception.

Ifran Rahman hopes that the companies producing e-cigs will come up with a more transparent approach in addressing their ingredients and components used in producing their products. So far this has not been the case. With any added information, it is possible for Ifran Rahman to conduct more experiments and determine if there any more hazards to utilizing e-cigs. It is his number one goal to inform the public and help them to cultivate healthier consumption habits. Ifran Rahman is a Professor of Medicine and holds a PHD.

Using Securus Technologies to Prevent Violent Crimes

As part of a very busy fugitive task force in the state, we have had to really up our game recently as the crime has become more violent. With the spread of gangs reaching further than ever before, these soldiers who used to only attack one another are now getting innocent civilians injured with all their violence. What we have discovered is that most of the violent outbreaks do not happen randomly with gangs, they have to get the order from the top players in that gang, something we have been working on to eradicate.

 

The trouble with gang violence is that if you cut the head off this snake, it simply grows back as the next in power takes over. Even with tougher laws, these violent criminals will call the shots from the jail if they have to, and we have always found ourselves in reaction mode instead of getting ahead of the problem. This was all about to change this year when the prison system we work at was going to have Securus Technologies install a newer inmate telephone call system.

 

Our prison has come to trust Securus Technologies and their CEO Richard Smith because for years he and his thousand employees are all committed to making the world a safer place for us all. This Dallas-based company already has system working in 2,500+ prisons around the country, and it was our turn to turn the tides on the gangs and their violence in our city. I knew we were going to be able to utilize the system because the team kept telling us that the software could do the work of a dozen officers, allowing us to spread out our team in areas that needed more attention.

 

I needed to be trained on the LBS software, and it was a real eye-opener once I learned how it identifies unique conversations between inmates and callers on the phone. Our team picked up chatter from gang leaders in jail giving street soldiers orders, who to target, where drugs were being picked up, all helping us to finally get ahead of this situation. This is very important because the inmates are not going to talk to us on their own, and even though they know we are on the calls, they either slip up or think they are too smart.

 

Through the efforts of using the call monitoring system, we have made a substantial dent in the efforts of the inmates getting contraband into the jail.

João Pessoa, one of the oldest cities in Brazil, was founded in 1585 by the Portugues and is the capital of Paraíba. The city contains historical structures such as the Redenção Palace, erected in 1586 and the Santa Catarina Fortress, built in 1586.

Hussain Sajwani – A Narrative of Wit and Hard Work

Dubai is home to some of the most iconic architecture of the modern era. All this mushrooms from a desert that was derelict land a couple of decades ago. Everything changed when the Dubai government signed a decree that let internationals invest in the Dubai real estate market. This was a game changer that not only turbocharged the market but also steered a couple of clever investors to success.

Mr Sajwani founded DAMAC Properties with the sole purpose of converting Dubai real estate into a real jewel fit for royalty. He didn’t disappoint. His very first venture converted a then underdeveloped section of Dubai into prime property after designing and marketing a 38-storey residential property.

The most impressive thing about his skill was in the fact that the property sold out in record time. All the money was in six months before the construction actually kicked off.

The most popular, and perhaps biggest yet, venture has been the construction of the Trump International Course in Dubai. Building a complete golf course and its related amenities is a grueling project that only the best can manage. The fact that DAMAC Properties won the tender is the first testimony to Sajwani’s prowess and prominence in the Dubai construction industry.

Hussain Sajwani went on to lead DAMAC into designing and creating an impressive course that is not only up to standards but also an undeniable testimony to the company’s capabilities and professionalism.

His success story has been a true blessing to the society. His company recently donated AED 2 million to the Ramadan Initiative. This is a genius campaign launched by the Ruler of Dubai to extend humanitarian services to needy children across the world.

The campaign focuses on clothing up to one million children in different parts of the globe. This is not only a way to give back to his immediate society but also a hint that Sajwani believes that DAMAC Properties is an international business with a responsibility to the whole world and not just Dubai.

When she has taken on the advertising industry, she has already learned the value of taking on new challenges so that she can grow.
