Breaking the DJ stereotype – Alex Pall and the Chainsmokers
March 29, 2018
The Chainsmokers being a pioneering band in changing the entire concept of a DJ and developing an emotionality towards their work, Mathias Rosenzweig, tries to understand more about them and their vision.
In an attempt to understand, how the duo even came about, Alex and Andrew both recount their starting days within the music industry. Both artists being passionate about DJing and electronic music had already decided that their careers must be within this field, and when their paths crossed, they took no time in realizing that to work together was the way forward. The main reason for this click being that both the artists not only realized the strengths that the other brought to the table, but their level of enthusiasm, as well as, knowledge of the industry, was completely on par.
When questioned about whether being a DJ made having an image as an artist difficult, they admitted that it could have, but the duo had decided to deviate from the norm. Alex further elaborated, that they stopped limiting themselves, started being emotionally invested in what they wrote and the results showed. He also went on to explain that, this was an important step, unlike many other artists and DJs the Chainsmokers started writing songs which were based on their own lives and also had their original lyrics within it. It was within this struggle that a song like ‘closer’ emerged.
Mathias goes on to ask about the audience that the band is connecting to, and taking advantage of social media and the demographics that it displays, they explain how their audience over the years, has developed from being only college kids to be much more diverse and even international. This does pose a positive challenge to them while performing, as they have to not only ensure that the shows are unique and exciting but also that they cater to the various age groups that follow them. To them this is key, the pressure and the willingness to always improve and to always deliver better, while staying true to themselves.
Securus Technologies Moves To Counter Drones From Delivering Contraband
March 26, 2018
Drones are quickly becoming part of our lifestyles. They are popular in photography, facility inspections, and small parcel deliveries among numerous other applications.
However, drones are being used in prisons for far more nefarious activities. An increasing number of inmates are quickly appreciating the technology’s potential and putting it to practical use. They are being used to ferry contraband to inmates.
Drone-related security incidences
The drone incursions are considered the latest and most creative assault on public safety yet. Securus Technologies is at the forefront of providing public safety solutions to prisons.
True to our pioneering legacy at the Dallas-based prison technology firm, we are taking the new drone challenge head-on. We are at an advanced stage of testing drone detection technology. This strategy is an impeccable counter-move to combat the threats from drones.
In the recent past, we have seen a marked increase in the use of unmanned aerial vehicles to supply contraband to prisoners. This problem is affecting a number of our facilities, and we are unequivocal about getting to the bottom of the issue.
The contraband includes mobile phones, weapons, and various drugs among others. Drone technology is pushing at an alarming rate.
Cutting edge drones have also become more affordable. We have detected an increase in the number of incidents in facilities associated with drones. More federal and state facilities are reporting drone-related security incidences across the country.
For example, a drone was used to deliver tools to an inmate in South Carolina. He used the tools to attempt an escape. In Ohio, a drone was used to deliver a cocktail of drugs to a prisoner.
On a related note, correctional services in the Cayman Islands use drones to protect the facilities from drug smugglers. Numerous commercial and private applications are guaranteed to take the technology into the future.
However, even though the bad guys seem to have a head start, we are hot on their heels. Soon, we shall declare our facilities drone-free zones.
As the leading prison technology company, we serve over three thousand facilities across the US. In a list of many firsts, we pioneered a system that controls the prevalence of illegal cellphones.
We were also the first on the market with a successful wireless containment system. The system stops illegal cell phones from connecting to the mobile communications networks from within our facilities.
Our new drone detection system is based on the same basic technology as the wireless containment solution. It leverages an advanced digital antenna solution that enables real-time scanning and monitoring.
How Organo Gold Company Came to Be
March 21, 2018
It is ultimately true that history defines the very nature of a person. The ability for any man or company surpassing their origin dictates how far of the journey they can go. The saying above can be a clear indication of the Organo Gold Company. The company’s founding father was Bernard Chua. Bernard Chua began the Oregano Cold Company in 2008. Watch this video on Youtube.
Bernard Chua is an expert when it comes to the marketing industry. He began the Company to help offer the coffee industry a multi-level marketing opportunity to individual coffee sellers to help them promote their coffee products. The Organo Gold Company maximizes on the fact that coffee is the second favorite and consumed beverage across the world.
Despite the harsh economic times, Coffee still exhibits durability and elasticity in almost every market in the world. It evident that coffee shops have taken up a majority of street corners and coffee products fill grocery shops stalls. With this growth in the coffee industry, it is expected that obtaining a stable market can prove to be difficult for individual sellers especially when offering plain coffee.
To help bridge the gap between the individual sellers and the market, Organo Gold steps in. The company produces its own different type of coffee and then sells the products using the multi-level marketing structure. The operation of this company is different. A board called the Scientific Advisory Board runs the Company. It has its offices in Canada and the USA.

The company uses Multi-level marketing, which allows individual marketers to advertise, promote, and sell their products on a regular basis.

Why is Sheriff Arpaio so insensitive?
February 19, 2018
There is a plethora of reasons for why Sheriff Arpaio is insensitive and mean. First off, he really tried to crack down, big time, on illegal immigrants. It is insensitive to crack down on illegal immigrants because those people are just trying to build better lives for themselves.
They just happened to be born in the wrong place and live at the wrong time, so now they are fixing their lives by coming to America. Many times their countries of birth are infested with war, crime, gang violence and religious extremism. Some of these people are fleeing from friends or relatives who want to kill them.
Also, what Sheriff Arpaio has to take into account is the fact that there are some Mexicans who come to America to work and then eventually go back to Mexico. These types of illegal aliens do not intend to live in America because America is a foreign land to them, and they want to live with their families in their homeland.
For a long time, “illegal immigration” on the Mexican border wasn’t really something that was made a big deal about. Mexicans would come and go freely as they pleased. Usually, they would migrate to America to do agricultural jobs, and then go back to Mexico. Read more: Village Voice Media | Wikipedia and Jim Larkin | LinkedIn
This has been a natural cycle for many years. Mexicans do this so that they can make a good salary for their families back home, where American money is worth more.
There are many other reasons—not relating to immigration, that show just how mean Sheriff Arpaio is. For example, he fed rotting bread and fruit to the people in his jails. Nobody wants to eat rotten food. Feeding people rotten food is a cruel and unusual punishment that can make people seriously ill. Eating rotten food should be taken very seriously.
Another reason for why he is insensitive is because of the fact that jail conditions deteriorated under his kingly rule. Mentally ill people were not given the care that they so desperately needed. People were kept in outdoor, low quality, “tent cities.” All of the inmates—even the guys—were forced to wear dainty, bright pink outfits.
Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey
If it wasn’t for journalists like Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey, the crimes of Sheriff Arpaio would not have been made known all over the world. The topic of Sheriff Arpaio was a reoccurring topic in Jim and Michael’s publications.
He still is a great topic of interest for the two men. What has really inspired them to put even more attention on Arpaio is the fact that he wrongfully penalized them.
Jim and Michael generally take the lefty stance of being pro-immigrant, pro-open borders, anti-Trump, anti-white-supremacy and pro-minority. They, themselves, do not visually appear to be Latino, and their last names do not sound Latino.
When reading their biographies, one gets the impression that they are not immigrants, and that they were born and raised in the United States. That could be a wrong impression, but is pretty probable that those details are true about them.

More people are appreciative of what Santiago has done because it shakes up the balance as to what is considered the norm.

Bruno Fagali’s Bid To Shut Down Corruption Red Flags In The Advertising Industry
February 6, 2018
Recently, there has been an increasing pressure for companies to adopt compliance programs. This follows the growing number of corruption investigations involving advertising firms. In Brazil, advertising agencies are paid in terms of bonuses by the media when they advertise. Therefore, these advertising firms provide the advertisers with the services but the money goes to the agencies instead of the communication vehicles they negotiated with. This connection between the media and the advertising agencies is what creates loopholes which are then misused.
In an article entitled “Red Flag”, Bruno Fagali, an expert in compliance law, explains the operations that are popular in advertising agencies which are at a higher risk of inviting unethical issues. Some of them include; media assignment criteria, inventive plans and intermediation of vehicle payment by the adviser. All of these are what Bruno Fagali refers to as “Red Flags” and says they are what lead to corruption. In order to curb this, rules are to be put in place that requires advertising agencies have corporate integrity programs.
