Communication is the key. This is something we hear so often, but does this saying have restrictions? Communication is without one of the most basic human rights, but it is also something we often take for granted. Picking up the phone to call a friend or loved one, or sending them a warm email or text seems simple, but what happens if they are incarcerated? Because of the necessary security restrictions often implemented in prisons and correctional facilities, traditional communication is not allowed. There are no cell phone providers to choose from, and no email accounts to exchange messages.

 

Studies show that communication with loved ones has a tremendous ability to aid in the rehabilitation of inmates. The ability to maintain a connection with people who are important to them serves as motivation for most inmates, keeping them focused on returning to their families. At Securus Technologies, the dedicated team of communication specialist and professionals realize that, and are committed to providing secure and reliable means of communication to correctional facilities and inmates.

 

Aside from providing traditional phone service that meets the standards of prison security, Securus Technologies also provides a video chat and email chat platform for inmates. Gone are the days where inmates and loved ones waited countlessly for letters and photos. Seeing the smile on a loving, familiar face is much easier for inmates, thanks to Securus Technologies and their commitment to improving communication options for inmates.

George Soros, the well-known hedge fund manager and one of the biggest billionaires in the world, is credited for many political contributions that sought a social change in the society. Interestingly, he also has a reputation as one of the largest philanthropic contributors among the billionaires. Soros actively interferes with the political system around the world in an attempt to change the social order that gives equal importance to everyone. With that mission, he contributed at least $25 million to the campaign of Hillary Clinton in the 2017 Presidential election. Soros felt that the policies and divisive speeches of Donald Trump can harm the American society in the long run. Know more on cnbc.com about George Soros.

Per the Federal Election Commission records and interviewing with campaigning experts, Soros has also contributed to many Hillary supporting PACs as well. Interestingly, this was the first time he was going for spending spree after 2004 Presidential election – in the election, Soros contributed more than 27 million to defeat the then President George W. Bush. This time, he donated $7 million to Priorities USA Action, a Clinton backing super PAC. Soros also contributed at least $2 million a research group cum PAC named American Bridge 21st Century, a group targeting various Republican candidates including Donald Trump. He made a commitment of $5 million to another super PAC named Immigrant Voters, a group working to raise the voting percentage from Hispanic voters, especially in the swing states.

Apart from making the political contributions to shape the future of the United States, George Soros is also found to be significantly playing his role in integrating the American community. The political observers confirm that he played a significant role in mobilizing the protests after the Ferguson incident in August 2014. As a currency trading billionaire with a fortune of nearly $25 billion, Soros funded various groups for years to mobilize them across the country. Per the disclosures of his Open Society Foundations, he contributed more than $33 million in a year to plan and coordinate grass-root level action plans. The groups funded by the Soros’ Open Society Foundations could make a one-day criminal event that happened in Missouri being converted to a 24-hour-a-day major protest. Visit his profile on Twitter.

It is known that Soros’ Open Society Foundations contribute and support various democratic protests that aim for equality and social justice around the world. It should be noted that Soros started the Open Society Foundations in the early 80s, and it has branches in more than 70 countries, as of today. Interestingly, the contributions from various OSF groups under him are coming with no strings attached. Even in the Ferguson and the following protests, his foundations did not give any directions on how to use the money or how to run the campaign, though the foundations were spending large sums.

Eric Pulier is widely known as one of the best minds in the technology sector. He’s also one of the best examples of how to approach the subject. The reason he’s such a good role model stems from the fact that he’s sidestepped some of the biggest issues with technological development right from the start. Pulier shows just how much can be accomplished when looking at the tech sector in the right way.

Eric Pulier certainly showcases the value of accomplishments in the field. However, the most important thing to take away from those accomplishments is how they came about. Pulier shows that the common assumptions about success in the tech field are often wrong. There’s usually an idea that success in technology comes from a laser focus on one specific area. Pulier instead demonstrates that the best way to move forward in the industry is through a larger vision.

Pulier’s main goal isn’t technological innovation. Instead, he’s always wanted to make the world a better place. It’s simply that technology offers the best methods by which people can help each other. A great example can be found with one of Pulier’s earlier charitable ventures with the Multiple Sclerosis Society. He put together some powerful educational software that was able to help educate people about the condition. Software based multimedia presentations have proven themselves to be an amazing way to help people understand the difficult realities of complex medical topics. The software has helped countless families understand the complex realities of multiple sclerosis in a way they might have never been able to without Pulier’s help.

Pulier used a similar theme to help educate children about diabetes. He created a game called Starlight World which gives kids a microscopic look into exactly how their bodies are coping with the condition. They get to see firsthand just what complications can be caused by differences in blood sugar or insulin. It’s a fantastic way to help kids have fun learning about medical conditions. It also takes away some of the concerns they might have otherwise felt.

These examples show just how much good someone can do for the world with technology. It’s only a small subset of the good which Pulier has been able to do for the world. But by looking at some of these accomplishments it should become clear just how important technology can be when it’s in the hands of someone with as big a heart as Pulier.

The Cancer Centers of America offers cutting edge treatment for patients who suffer from many types of cancer. It uses chemotherapy, radiation and other traditional forms of therapy, but it infuses new technologies and treatment methods into the works as well. One of the newest form of treatment that is effective for some types of cancers is immune system therapy. This new treatment involves teaching the immune system to attack cancer cells.

People often mistakenly think that cancer is just one disease. It is not. There are different causes and types of cancer, and some are harder to cure than others. The disease process begins when a cell’s method of keeping itself from being copied too many times goes haywire. Mutations often begin this process, but they are not the only method. Anyone who has studied biology beyond the middle school level knows that most DNA mutations do not affect the individual. Of the ones that do, most of these are harmful. A few of these mutations are beneficial. In theory, cancerous cells could live forever, if they did not end up killing the patient.

Using new and traditional technologies to create an effective treatment plan convinces most people, but the Cancer Treatment Centers of America goes beyond just offering medical support. The staff offer nutritional, psychological and spiritual support to its patients. Its staff often uses a holistic approach, but this does not mean that the center uses New Age medicine, although it would not prevent someone from using alternative medicine techniques in addition to their regular therapy routine.

No one wants to hear the c word from their doctor. Despite the progress science has made, no cancer treatment is one hundred percent effective. Some types of cancer may always be difficult to treat, but the staff at the Cancer Centers of America do everything they can to return their patients to full health.
