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.

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.

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics Strategy of Surviving in the Ever Competitive Fashion Industry

Kate Hudson’s Fabletics is currently taking over Amazon, who controls nearly 20% of the online fashion industry. Fabletics incorporates a subscription strategy in selling fitness clothing to its clients. In the past, high-value brands were characterized by price and quality; however, this is no longer a competitive mechanism. Currently, gamification, customer service, exclusive design, last-mile service and brand recognition are the some of the essential elements being considered for what is high-value to the client. Fabletic’s membership plan has been successful and is expected to open more shops to add to the existing ones in Florida, Hawaii, California and Illinois.

 

The General Manger, Greg Throgmartin explains that company’s membership model has enabled them to offer personalized service and trendy fashion at a reduced price than that of its competitors. Most of the companies are disadvantaged by showrooming because individuals will browse offline and then purchase items cheaper elsewhere. For this reason, Fabletics have changed the model due to their initial operations.

 

They could have used the pop-up store model, but their current use of Reverse showrooming ensures they build and maintain relations through events and other activities. As such, approximately 30-50% of their walk-ins clients are already members, w25% of the walk in will become members in the store. Whenever the client tries on a piece of clothing, it goes on their online shopping cart whether they will purchase it at the store or not. At Fabletics, retail is another element of service.

 

A review by Teri Hutcheon, a blogger behind A Foodie Stays Fit website, recommends Buyers who are looking for a great deal for nice style and quality. She also recommends Fabletics since one can go for months without paying a dime until they find clothes that catch their eye. In her review, Teri explained that when joining the membership at Fabletics, one can select VIP membership and then buy their first outfit at only $25 as well as get discounts for la carte items. Besides in a given month, one can get clothing curated for them as well as 2-3 pieces of outfit for $49-59. If one decides not to buy anything during that month, they will not be charged anything.

 

Furthermore, one takes a survey when they are joining. The aim of the quiz is to reveal the types of workouts and the style of outfits one likes. Then at the onset of every month, work outfits are selected for the client. It is advisable to take the lifestyle survey so that one can get the best suited Fabletics apparel.
