Securus Technologies CEO Highlights Differences Between Firm and Competitor

Securus Technologies is one of the nation’s largest providers of solutions and services to law enforcement and correctional agencies. Securus has just issued a press release in which it challenges rival firm GTL to have a virtual “bake off,” meaning that an independent expert would weigh the quality of each business’s platform, business model, and customer service in order to determine the market leader.


According to Securus CEO Rick Smith, GTL has attempted to pass itself off as the equal of Securus despite the fact that their technological capabilities and operational models are dated in comparison to those of Securus, which has invested more than $700 million into operations in the past four years. Smith believes that this investment has transformed the company into the undisputed market leader.


Securus boasts the world’s largest VOIP platform for correctional facilities, which makes it much easier for companies to update systems with new capabilities more efficiently and at a lower cost. As a result, many former GTL clients have contracted with Securus and many praise the quality of the company’s products and services as being superior.


Based in Dallas, Securus serves over 3,000 agencies and over a million inmates throughout the United States and Canada.


Wen is my Hair Care Savior

For about four months now, the Wen by Chaz styling conditioner has been my go-to product in the shower. It serves as a 5-in-1 product that saves me steps and time but doesn’t cause any strain to my hair. The results of this product have led me to other Wen by Chaz products while boosting my confidence greatly. I love my shiny hair bouncing in the wind, creating looks and stares from other girls so envious (but if they only knew that the secret is Wen!)

The Wen conditioner works as a shampoo, conditioner, leave-in conditioner, deep conditioner, and a detangler. Use it once daily and you’re good to go. In just two weeks, my hair was shinier, full of volume and lift, and it was much easier to style my hair. Yes I even posted on Twitter! It took just two weeks to see these phenomenal results!

The Sweet Almond Mint smell is one that I thoroughly enjoy. It leaves a great smell in my hair that lasts all day long. It isn’t overpowering, it isn’t too little; it is just right. The smell is a highlight of the product that you will love just as much as me and there isn’t a doubt about that!

I must say that Wen hair by Chaz has changed my entire hair care routine for the better. The product has also helped me attain gorgeous hair like I’ve always wanted in only a couple of weeks. I can understand how this cleansing conditioner became popular so fast. It works wonderfully for all hair types, with awesome results in no time at all! Use Wen for yourself and you’ll be satisfied with the results. Wen hair care products are available on Sephora and online via

Kim Dao Features Her October Favorites

Kim Dao and Sunnydahye are in this video talking about their favorite products for the month of October. Kim Dao and Sunny are both wearing matching pink outfits in the video, and Kim Dao even has a cute pink hair accessory around her two ponytails. The first product that Kim Dao talks about is the One Step Pimple Clear Pad. This was a product gifted to Kim Dao by one of her friends, and she just fell in love with the way it removed excess makeup and oil after cleansing the skin. Kim Dao also raves about the Baking Powder Tissue by stating that it is the best makeup remover that she has ever used. A tube of Cover Perfection Concealer Duo is the next product that Kim Dao talks about in this video. Sunny even calls this particular product “the holy grail.” This concealer doubles as a stick and a liquid concealer, which makes it perfect for switching it up depending upon what type of foundation you’ll be using. One of the most exciting features in this line up of products is the Twin Shot Lips Tint. Kim Dao does a demonstration with this product, and it is absolutely brilliant. The lip tint goes on blue when applied, but in no time it blends into a beautiful soft pink color. This video is loaded with tons of exciting products that work wonders.

Solutions For Traffic In Austin, Texas

On December 15th, 2016, a summit was held regarding transportation issues in Williamson County, a suburb of Austin, Texas. The discussion included many transportation experts such as Central Texas Regional Mobility Authority Executive Director Mike Heiligenstein, and was based around the need for changes in transportation methods within the ever-advancing area of Austin.


The issue most discussed was how traffic could be reduced and made more efficient. Heiligenstein’s point was that, although new technologies such as driverless vehicles and ridesharing apps have, and will continue to transform transportation infrastructure, the Austin area should still be considering older forms of transit. He said that the city needs to invest in building more efficient roads to match the demands of a rapidly growing population. According to Heiligenstein, “It’s getting to a point where, the corridors we have remaining, we need to make them smarter, more efficient and more technically advanced”.


According to him, the transition from autonomous to driverless cars will be slow and tedious, so an improvement on the area’s capacity for roads an busses is still needed. Heiligenstein believes this to be especially true since Austin’s fast rate of population growth will effectively nullify any increased use of mass transit. “Anything you win with a 5 percent transfer to other modes is going to beaten up by migration,” he claims, which is why he proposes an increase to twelve lanes on U.S. Highway 183 and State Highway 290.


Texas External Affairs Director Leandre Johns suggested their own ideas. Johns said that commuters could use first-mile and last-mile options in accordance with public transportation, and that ridesharing companies such as Uber could provide such an option. With the opportunity to get a ride to and from mass transit, people would be more willing to use such transportation methods rather than crowding roads with their own personal vehicles. Johns said this could easily be done by creating “subsidies that help the rider and the transit agency”.
