Securus Technologies Is Now Getting BICSI Certfication For Employees

Eleven employees who are installation technicians for Securus Technologies have now been certified by Building Industry Consulting Service International (BICSI). BICSI is an independent association that sets standards and certifies technicians in the telecommunications industry, and Securus Technologies has adopted their training program to place more qualified workers in the field. Danny de Hoyos, Securus’s Vice President of Technical Operations has spoken highly of training program and how the certification increases the expertise in the field. The programs that technicians can enroll in include installing fiber optic cables, copper wire technologies, and wireless systems.


Securus Technologies has served correctional facilities in telecommunications since 1986. This Dallas, TX company has come up with over 100 patents in this time and has bought out several subsidiaries to increase its service. Securus has phone billing options to make calls affordable for inmates and their families, and calls can be made prepaid, or use a self-service billing system. Inmates can receive or transfer funds using Securus’s ConnectUs platform, and also through JPay who they acquired a little over a year ago. Securus has kiosks in corrections facilities from which purchases can be made, or paperwork filed.


Whenever a big event happens at home, all that’s needed is a webcam and internet connection and incarcerated loved ones can see it live. Prison staff and law enforcement officers can be alerted in an instant through Securus’s THREADS system, a comprehensive monitoring system that tracks inmate associations, activities, and call patters for anything suspicious. Securus also is connected to multiple law enforcement databases for instant access to pertinent information in criminal cases.


The entrepreneurial journey of Marc Sparks

Timber Creek has been operating in the same area for a decade before moving to an area of better collaboration and incubation. Marc Sparks, a serial entrepreneur and owner of Timber Creek, helps entrepreneurs turn their business ideas into more revenue.

Starting a business can be challenge. There are a lot of expenses involved in starting a business and it is hard to generate enough press. When starting a business the first step is to come up with an idea. Then take the idea and plan out how you are going to get the resources to expand the business.

 Timber Creek Capital is able to hold three different companies in their new buildings. They have the resources to offer an extensive incubation period. Sparks went through the same general challenges a young student would go through when getting through school and starting a business.

Could you work better in a small warehouse with little windows or would you prefer to work in a rented office space sitting in the center of a busy intersection? It is important to pick a place where everyone working for the company can be productive. Doing work on the cheap may hurt production.

 Marc has started several successful businesses and understands the benefits of having a safe workplace where ideas can flow well. He wrote a book comparing the different successes and failures he experienced throughout his journey.

 Marc Sparks has worked with a handful of companies coaching them to success. Sparks gives them plenty of resources such as banking, marketing, capital, and office space to help them grow. He has first hand experience with all the devastating challenges a young entrepreneur will face. He wants to see entrepreneurs accomplishing their dreams. Having focus and a sense of urgency goes a long way in the business world. Based on all his success and failures he is qualified to help teach others.

Marc Sparks is a man of many talents. He always finds a way to stay busy. In addition to starting Timber creek, he is an author, philanthropist, and serial entrepreneur. He wrote a book called They Can’t Eat You which highlights the path Sparks took to become a successful businessman. All of the success and failures he had to work with.

Sparks has helped out with a number of different charities benefiting the community. He worked with Habitat for Humanity which helps build affordable housing for those families struggling to find shelter. He also works with Sparkey’s Kids which helps donate thousands of laptops to underprivileged kids.

Power Woman Desiree Perez Heading Tidal

Samsung seeks to buy Tidal from Jay Z.

Tidal is an electronics company based in South Korea. The company teamed up with Jay-Z during the launch of his album Magna Carta in 2013 and with Rihanna on Roc Nation. Samsung has also contacted Kanye West following the involvement of Tidal in “The Life of Pablo.” Clare Atkinson was informed that Samsung was having great plans that it is working on. The sustainability of Tidal is currently at stake considering that the entry of Kanye West, Rihanna and Beyonce has not attracted new subscribers.

Samsung is however not the only company that is after Tidal. Google and Spotify are after it too. Spotify is said to have proposed a partnership and not an acquisition. Tidal is under a lot of pressure considering that Jay-Z has even spent his money to support the company. Previous attempts by Sprint and Softbank to acquire Tidal have not been fruitful. The current depreciation in the company’s value from $250 million to $100 million may cause a different result.

Desiree Perez is described as a tough businesswoman. She is a close associate and business partner of Jay-Z and an integral part of what may happen to Tidal. Currently, Desiree is the manager of Jay Z’s businesses, which include Roc Nation, Roc Nation Sport and also Tidal. She is an excellent negotiator. This quality has helped her make very good business deals for Tidal and Roc Nation. She has been the center of attention because of the current financial situation at Tidal. Despite this, she has greatly helped in ensuring that the company is still running smoothly. She also helps with making future plans and making decisions for the benefit of the company.

Tidal’s hope is now in Desiree’s good negotiation skills and also Jay-Z. It is rumored that Spotify has the best chance with Tidal. This is because they are after a partnership and not a buyout. If Spotify is successful, the company will be “Tidal Powered by Spotify.” With her expertise in business, Desiree is confident about getting the best deal for Tidal. Even during this time when Tidal is going through a rough patch, it is still valuable.

Lovaganza Looks To Help The World Through Entertainment

The release of the first of the “Lovaganza Convoy” of movies that are planned to form an initial trilogy has begun as this foundation looks to bring change to the world with the aid of a series of entertainment options. Lovaganza is hoping to use the skills of its film maker founders in a bid to raise funds that will then be spread to existing organizations looking to improve the quality of life for children and adults across the world; the aim of Lovaganza is to guarantee a specific quality of life for all children by the middle of the century.

The success of the first movie in the planned Lovaganza trilogy could eventually lead to what the production team envision as a nine trilogy series, but the success of the movies is just a small part of the ambitious plans the group has for the future. The production of the first movies in the trilogy has taken the production team around the world and already had a significant impact on small communities in areas of Europe chosen to be locations for filming on Instagram; a small Spanish community saw an influx of around $30,000 into its economy that will have a positive impact on the future of the area.

The “Lovaganza Convoy” of movies will begin its journey around the world with a traditional theatrical release, but will also form a traveling show that will move around the world prior to a global event taking place in 2020. Lovaganza organizers have created a traveling show that will project the movies made by the group on huge screens featuring a wrap around 180 degree experience known as Immerscope; projected in both 3-D and 2-D this traveling show will bring people together in anticipation of the major event taking place in 2020.

Eight locations around the world have so far been chosen to host the global event, which will be based on the successful World’s fair ideals of the 19th and 20th centuries; visitors to the locations will have the opportunity to explore cultures on from around the world and learn just how we are all cultures are both similar and different.

New York Offices For Rent Made Easier

I used to be that freelancers and business startup owners and operators that wanted to get work done on the computer either had to do so in their own homes or go to a local Starbucks or coffee shop to get their work done. Now that has changed with the invention of a new kind of working space in which these independent workers can come together under one roof to work either independently or together. Whatever they choose. They are becoming exceedingly popular around the world and are being touted for their innovative designs.

One example of one of these cutting edge co working spaces is located just steps away from Bryan Park and Times Squar. New York’s Workville shared office space is frequented by independent workers twenty four hours a day and 365 days out of the year. New York City is the perfect place for one of these offices as it has been affectionately nicknamed the city that never sleeps.

Anyone can go to Workville and work for any amount of time based on their needs. They have a variety of different space options available to suit your needs whether you will be working alone, want to collaborate with others, or if you are in need of a full conference room, they can meet those needs as well.  They know that some people are more effective alone, while others prefer to work in a team or group dynamic. They also know that some people do not enjoy working during the typical nine to five schedule that the traditional office enforces, that is why they keep their doors open and available at all hours of the day and night and they do not even close on the holidays. For some business owners, the work never really stops and with the evolution of co working spaces like this it never has to.

Tarallucci e Vino Ranks among the Best in Events Space Provision

If you are interested in hosting any special private event, you need to sample from a variety of popular restaurants in town. These are restaurants that will offer you excellent facilities that are just right for your type of event. In case you need to host a birthday party, a wedding, an anniversary, a rehearsal dinner or any other type of event, you need to consider using the facilities offered by such restaurants which will offer you excellent services that will give you a peace of mind.

One such restaurant is The Charlie Bird restaurant that is located in the Soho neighborhood. This restaurant is well known for its Italo-American dishes which include a wide range of the now famous uni pasta, the homemade spaghetti, roast chicken and many other mouth-watering delicacies. It is also known for its music and colorful old boombox prints that decorate its walls. This restaurant is known for belting out tunes by famous rap artists like Jay-Z, Snoop Dogg, Dr. Dre among others. It provides private rooms for group dining where one can host special events of any sort.

Another great spot is the China Blue Restaurant that is located in the Tribeca area. This is a Chinese-styled restaurant that has so much food and space to offer. Its interior is designed in a style that portrays a contrast between the lofty downtown space and the Jazz Age Shanghai era that is refreshingly old-fashioned. It is fully decorated with ornamental lights and dark wood bookshelves which are lined with flea market finds. Its foods also show the same contrast that includes the Dim Sum menu which is Shanghainese. The restaurant also caters for group events and features partial rooms that are more suitable for private events. These rooms offer the right services and facilities and are spacious enough to cater for a big group.

But perhaps, the perfect location worth checking out is the Tarallucci e Vino restaurant that is located in Union Square. This restaurant offers two event spaces that are suited for any special event. The menu, which is well prepared by the renowned Chef Riccardo Bilotta, features a blend of the traditional Italian cuisine mixed with modern culinary techniques which are a specialty to many guests. This restaurant has dedicated its mezzanine floor for small private gatherings and offers the privacy required in such events. The room is sophisticated, warm and homely and can accommodate a group of about 30 guests.

The room features a bar and a lounge area that is fully furnished with custom brick tables which include antique cabinets and artistic mirrors that offer the perfect ambiance for any visitor. As if that is not enough, the restaurant also features a state of the art wine cellar that offers wine lovers an experience that is worth remembering. The sixth floor opens up to an elegant Loft that is used to cater for any event. The room can support about 50 guests for a business meeting and about 120 guests for a birthday party.

Black Matters, But Does Right Matter More to George Soros?

Politics is a hard game, emotions are high, and the hostile competitive edge blurs the line between good sportsmanship and foul play. This is not new information; conflict in battle has been evident since the age of time, from as far back as the Roman triumphal columns to the American Civil War photographs, the desire for an advantage has always been high in battle. So it comes to pass that confirmation was needed from a director from the Open Society Foundation to set clear that George Soros did not pay for the Black Lives Matter protest, rumored to have cost $33 million.

Conservative political groups and general-interest groups have pointed the finger at George Soros for fronting the money for the protest. A legitimist investigative reporter for the Washington Time delved into George Soros funding charities showing a strong connection with liberal philosophies. Indeed, George Soros’s proclivity toward liberal issues is not news worthy, it is well documented he supports equal opportunity, equality, and social benefits. He is a civil libertarian and human rights devotee. But would he go so far as to mock and disrupt confrontational opponents to his beliefs? Would he pay, not a couple of bucks; but, an entire fortune to get his way in this world? Is being a human rights advocate, a person that would pay for the destruction of anyone who opposes their political view? All good questions, Black Lives Matter was started by individuals who work for Soros’s charitable organizations. Open Society Foundations is one of George Soros special and dominate charitable works.

The rumor is that Open Society Foundations creates agitators to interfere and interrupt political functions held by Republican type organizations. In defense, a director from the Open Society Foundation told the media that the liberal tycoon did not directly give money to the three organizers that created the Black Lives Matter organization. The Black Lives Matter is considered to be a social media grass-roots organization stemming from Facebook and like sources. Strikingly, thirty-three million dollars is a lot of money, it wouldn’t surprise anyone that from $33 million, the money could easily be disturbed to the desired object-target. However, the Open Society Foundation spokesman Mr. Zimmerman said emphatically no, the foundation works to shape vibrant and tolerant societies, not the contrary. This organization tries to keep the government in check with the people’s natural rights and liberties. These ideals are honorable, and further information on Open Society Foundation can be found on their webpage at
