Betsy DeVos speaks to the Conservative Political Action Conference about Education Empowerment

Beginning with a moment of silence for the students, teachers, and all the people who were impacted by the school shooting in Parkland, Florida, Education Secretary Betsy DeVos addressed the Conservative Political Action Conference as she was interviewed by Kay Coles James, Heritage Foundation President. The subject of the speech was empowerment in the areas concerning freedom of choice for education and freedom to express ideas in college.

 

Among the items discussed by Secretary DeVos were the steps her office is taking to implement the Every Student Succeeds Act (ESSA). The Every Student Succeeds Act will help to ensure that all students and schools are successful. Secretary DeVos encouraged the decision makers at the State level to empower parents in the education of their children by offering them more educational opportunities, especially military parents. A new plan that the Department of Education and the Heritage Foundation are working to help military parents is to offer education savings accounts for military dependents. Military families with school-age children make decisions regarding whether they serve based on where their children will attend school.

 

Secretary DeVos explained that school vouchers are not just about considering whether to send your child to private schools. Vouchers are simply a mechanism of how to choose a school. She serves on a task force that focuses on elevating and increasing the opportunities involving apprenticeship. In this country we must realize that obtaining a four-year college or university degree is not the only way to become successful. Millions of jobs go unfilled because people do not have the required skills to fill those jobs.

 

Secretary DeVos believes college students should be able to express their opinions and test their ideas, which is something that she had a chance to do when she was in college. Without mentioning any specific incidents, Secretary DeVos acknowledged that there have been attempts to silence free speech and the expression of conservative ideas on college campuses. Secretary DeVos told listeners that the place to have disagreements, which she refers to as “the battle of ideas” is on the college campuses. Therefore, Secretary DeVos pledged to work towards ensuring that students will continue to have the opportunity to freely express their ideas. She explained that for college students, support for higher education is a significant role of the Office of Secretary of Education.

 

Secretary DeVos reiterated her goal of wanting to see that all parents be able to choose what school their child attend. Kay Coles James compared Secretary DeVos to Margaret Thatcher, who was described as, “an iron fist and a velvet glove.” At times, in the face of opposition, Secretary DeVos has championed the cause for equal educational opportunities for children. She was appointed Secretary of the Department of Education by President Donald Trump.

Securus Technologies Helping Prevent the Use of Contraband Phones Inside Prison with Its WCS Technology

The correctional field has been highly competitive, and many companies are trying to dominate this growing sector. One of the companies that have been consistently growing regarding revenue, size, and market reputation since it was established in the year 1986 is Securus Technologies. The company is a market leader in North America, where over 3.400 correctional facilities use its services. More than 1.2 million inmates currently rely on Securus Technologies for the inmate communications services it provides. Securus Technologies spends millions of dollars each year on market and scientific research and developing high-end and advanced correctional technology, which has helped the company outgrow its competitors and lead the competition from the front.

 

Securus Technologies continues to develop new high-end technologies from time to time, and one of the latest technologies that it has introduced in the correctional sphere is the wireless containment system. With the help of wireless containment system, Securus Technologies would help the correctional facilities to eliminate the use of contraband phones by the inmates, which is a problem that has cost hundreds and even thousands of lives over the years. With the help of these smuggled contraband phones, the criminals inside the prison can control many different criminal activities outside the prison and can also potentially put the lives of the many law enforcement officials serving them in danger. Recently, it was found that one of the inmates in the Evans Correctional Facility shot a video of nearly 4 minutes and posted it on the social media network from inside the prison.

 

Such an incident comes as a shame to the law enforcement agencies and also highlights how vulnerable the lives of the officers inside and outside of the prison are. It is where the wireless containment system by Securus Technologies can help in ensuring that such incidents can be prevented. The wireless containment system would render the contraband phones inside the prison useless, and only the authorized communication with the registered phones would be made possible. So, even if the contraband phones reach the hand of the inmates, they would not be able to make or receive calls on it. It is this kind of system that was tasted in around eight facilities that Securus Technologies serve. It was seen that within one year, the wireless containment system was able to stop over 1.7 million unauthorized and illegal communications.

 

Robert Johnson, a former corrections officer, who now works with Securus Technologies as a consultant says that there is no technology other than the wireless containment system that can prevent the use of contraband phones as efficiently now. The company has invested millions into its development and is committed to updating the technology as the research continues to expand its capabilities.

With Whitney Wolfe Herd’s Bumble, Online Dating Will Never Be the Same

Bumble has breathed new life into online dating. Since its inception in 2015, it has more than fifteen million users. As a dating app, one thing distinguishes it from the rest, which makes it so popular within a short time. It lets women take charge in deciding with whom to begin a conversation.

A post shared by WWH (@whitwolfeherd) on

Whitney Wolfe Herd was a co-founder of Tinder, another popular dating app based in America. When she fell out with her partners at Tinder, she joined hands with Andrey Andreev, the founder of a UK based dating app, Badoo. This app was popular in the UK and other parts of the world, but not in the US. They created Bumble, the dating app that requires women to send the initial message to potential dates.

According to Whitney, when women make the first move, the number of strangers contacting or harassing them reduces. By making it a rule, Bumble ensures the women are not judged harshly when they send the first message to potential dates. Some men like the idea, since they are sure the women contacting them are attracted to them, and they will not reject them if they ask them out.

Not everyone thinks that it is right for women to make the first move. Whitney argues that it happens even in offline dating where the woman may have to smile, steal a glance at a man or cuddle the man’s hand suggestively.

In a recent interview with Sarah Hepola, the Dallas based author of ‘Blackout: Remembering the Things I Drank to Forget,’ Whitney said that she wanted to create a dating app where users were pleasant to each other. This was at a time when there was an increase in incidences of sexual assault on women. Dating apps took the blame for this since they allowed people to share private information with strangers. Bumble founder created the app after experiencing online harassment

Bumble enhances decency and credibility in online dating. It has set expectations for the users. They do not allow indecent exposure, and the profile photos are screened. They demand etiquette from their clients. Bumble’s Whitney Wolfe: ‘I’m worried we’re alienating the good guys’

As Sarah observes, Bumble enlists serious, well-mannered users. Whitney has also started a product where women can find friends and support each other. Her app provides a platform for engagement respectfully and safely. Bumble Founder Whitney Wolfe’s Whirlwind Wedding Was a True Celebration of Southern Italy

Whitney Wolfe Herd has a religious upbringing that manifests in what she advocates for among her dating app users. She is a graduate of Southern Methodist University and the wife of Michael Herd. The Founder Of Bumble On The Future Of Dating & Making It In Your 20s

 

Lacey And Larkin Promote the Frontera Fund

Jim Larkin, a native from Phoenix, Arizona who dropped out of Arizona State University was one of the forerunners of the Phoenix New Times together with Michael Lacey. Lacey, who grew up in Newark but eventually moved to the west side to attend in the same university as Larkin, was positioned as the New Times’ executive editor while Larkin was spearheading the advertising section. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia and Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund

Last October on the year 2007, the Phoenix New Times revealed explicit details regarding a grand-jury investigation which happened to negatively budge the infamous anti-immigrant sheriff of Maricopa County, Joe Arpaio.

On the 18th day of October 2007, agents from the Maricopa County Selective Enforcement Unit arrested both Lacey and Larkin for they were responsible for the New Times’ disclosure of details regarding the investigation. However, within 24 hours from the time of the arrest of both newspapermen, the sheriff dropped and closed the case.

Tracing back, Arpaio, who had a bad history of law-enforcement problems, was triggered by the New Times’ revelation for his department’s despicable misdoings was constantly exposed by the publication way back 1992.

Listed amongst Arpaio’s misdeeds include the intriguing number of detainees who lost their lives in his jail cells and the illegal operations carried out by his deputies solely to destroy his rivals in politics. Arpaio’s dispute against Lacey and Larkin and his deliberate disrespect for the rights of the Latinos who resided and worked in his area are two of his major offenses.

During the last few months of the year 2013, Larkin and Lacey received $3.75 million from the Maricopa County which served as a settlement to clean up the unlawful arrests. The business partners then made use of the money to launch a non-profit Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund.

The fund aimed to support the rights of migrants and immigrants. Moreover, the Lacey & Larkin Frontera Fund also targeted to assist and help the Latin American groups residing in the state of Arizona.

It was during the year 2016 when Arpaio slowly faced his downfall. The voters in his area disagreed to grant him with his seventh term as a sheriff. In addition, a judge imprisoned Arpaio for criminal disrespect of court from the Melendres suit, a case which he faced during his deliberate disregard for the Latinos in his area.

What makes things interesting is that a pardon, which can possibly spare the Maricopa County sheriff from a prison term, was granted to him by President Donald Trump who happens to be his long time compadre and friend.

During the third week of November 2017, Stephen Lemon from the Front Page Confidential revisits the story of the decade-long issue between Lacey & Larkin and the Maricopa County sheriff.

According to Lemon’s write up, Jim Larkin mentioned that Arpaio was indeed a terrible sheriff and jailer but he was a ‘great politician’. Moreover, Larkin believes that the sheriff was a precursor to Trump’s political victory thus giving us answers as to why the pardon was granted.
