    The internet is, among many things, a great equalizer. It gives a voice to people all over the world and many folks use that voice to make judgements about companies that they deal with. This niche has opened up the door for companies like Status Labs to rise through the cracks and become legitimate players in the world of business. Status Labs is an online reputation management and public relations firm based out of Austin, Texas. The company, for years, has been helping people of all demographics repair their reputation. However, would it surprise you to know that they first had to repair their own rep?

    While Status Labs has done work with over 1,000 different businesses and individuals all over the globe, they first had to do work on their own name. CEO Darius Fisher, who took over the company after a bout with reputation issue, outlined his route to success in rehabilitating the image that Status Labs had so carefully cultivated. He knew that it would be an uphill battle but one, if done right, that could change their company.

    First Fisher and Status Labs focused on changing the culture that surrounded their company. The reason that the business was so easily taken down by critics was that they had not established a culture of giving back to their local community. So Fisher started to get Status Labs involved with local charities and other businesses. He wanted his company to be seen first before they were judged, that way they could get the benefit of the doubt the next time something potentially happened.

    Afterwards it became apparent that the best way to prevent future issues was by creating a team oriented culture that prized professionalism and teamwork over anything else. So Fisher and the company started implementing team building activities: the company would cater lunch on Fridays, startup a stock option plan, and even allow employees to bring in well behaved pets. With all of these steps in place it was easy for Status Labs to change the way the company operated, was received, and ultimately judged by the rest of the world.

    Securus is regarded as the fastest growing technological solutions company in the United States’ inmate and communication industry, offering solutions for investigation, communication, public safety and monitoring. The company is rated A+ by Better Business Bureau with regards to being transparent, advertising honestly, building trust, honoring promises, safeguarding privacy and exemplifying integrity.

    Securus Technologies have released its first roll of evidence highlighting GTL’s integrity breaches and wrongdoings while serving one of its clients; Louisiana Department of Correction. According to a report by Richard Smith, GTL had deliberately programmed their telephones to rate calls higher than the default rates permitted by the Federal Communication Commission. The telephone were also encoded to add either 15 or 36 seconds to durations of every call made to inmates. These practices were entirely unauthorized and as a results, GTL overcharged Louisiana facilities by an amount equivalent to $1.2 million.

    The Chief Executive Officer of Securus, Richard Smith, referred to GTL’s actions as offensive to the industry. Every company in the industry has a duty to serve their clients with their interest at heart and not just to make money. Securus planned to release a series of multiple other articles, reports, findings and facts that highlighted all the wrongdoings and integrity breaches by GTL

    Winter sports has become a hot topic the past couple of years. As temperatures rise and drought continues in California, the snow has declined. I heard a recent interview done with Andy Wirth on Press Play with Madaline Brand. She asks, “How Will the Drought Affect California Ski Resorts?” Hopefully, Andy has the answers.

    Andy Wirth is the President of Squaw Valley Ski Corporation and the Cheif Executive Officer of Alpine Meadows of Tahoe, INC. He has been on the sales and marketing team of IntraWest ULC and Steamboat Ski & Resort Corporation. He has over 24 years of Marketing experience in the ski resort industry. He graduated with a B.S. at Colorado State University and attended Edinburgh University in Scotland.

    According to Andy Wirth, the biggest problem is the “Ridiculously Resilient Ridge”. Because of the Ridge, a lot of low-pressure systems that bring in the snow was lost last year. This doesn’t mean that the entire mountain ridge is clean of snow. The ski resort business is still going strong. “Well you got 6 thousand acres,” says Andy, “So if we only have 4 thousand acres for skiing, you’re still going to have a very very good time.”

    Some other methods of dealing with less snow are making and managing snow efficiently. Andy mentions using scientific methods to keep snow on the ground once made. He’s also enlisted different machines for transporting snow already on the ground.

    With El Niño coming, the resilient ridge will now act as a way to hold the cold temperatures in. Climatologists from Colorado State University see a much better winter for ski resorts this year than the last four. This means a longer season and more snow cover this upcoming season.

    Lastly, the interview moves on to the impact climate change has had on ski resorts. “We see ourselves as resource managers…We take managing this natural resource very seriously” Andy Wirth states. Ski resorts are working towards fighting the rising carbon emissions by eliminating it in their own companies. They work to reduce carbon in their buildings and operations as well as in any of their imports. The ski industry is resilient after all. Andy Wirth insists that despite the weather, the capital margin for ski resorts is still high.

    Squaw Valley Ski Holdings looks to open their season the Wednesday before Thanksgiving.

    Not in my backyard. Not in your backyard, either. That’s what I say. Who wants to live next door to a prison? Let’s see a show of hands.
    Now, arguably, living in the immediate vicinity of a prison could be one of the safest places to live. (Frankly, with the way things are going in the world today, living IN a prison could be one of the safest places to live.) Modern confinement facilities are staffed with teams of professionals dedicated to ensuring the safety of not only the inmates, but the community at large.

    Companies like Securus Technologies (see the BBB.org profile) aid corrections professionals in this fight to keep the public safe and secure. In this fight, there will be heroes, and there will be villains. Is it villainy when GTL decides to defraud the taxpayers of Louisiana by padding prisoner phone calls with hidden charges? Is it villainy when this same company changes the clocks so that 15-36 seconds is artificially added to each call? Is theft and the betrayal of the public trust villainous?

    http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/securus-receives-accreditation-from-better-business-bureau-300267674.html

    I’ve learned from PR Newswire that there would be heroes in this fight, and indeed, one has emerged: the voice of Securus Techologies, bravely crying out against injustice in a world beset with malice and evil. I say, companies like Securus Techologies deserve recognition and commendation for their honesty and integrity in the face of outright lawlessness.

    Have you ever wished that you could simply just stop everything you were doing and have beautiful hair? Have you ever wished that you could have all your hair prayers( yes I said hair prayers) answered in one solution? You’re no alone. Many of us do and after several years of bad hair days and a plethora of other nightmare experiences with my hair I have finally identified a solution that works for my hair and works pretty well. WEN By Chaz has been my saving grace. For so long I could never seem to find a product that worked on my thin hair until one night while staying up late watching infomercials I stumbled across this 3 in 1 hair solution that works as a shampoo, conditioner, and styling gel. It has really transformed my hair and my confidence quite honestly because who doesn’t live for great hair right.
    I remember like it was yesterday when the Wen By Chaz rumors first hit. My mom called me and told me that Wen By Chaz was under fire because it had been causing some negative effects for others. I was flabbergasted because the product had worked pretty darn well for me and I couldn’t imagine it impacting my hair like it had impacted others but who was I to really say if the rumors were true or false no one listens to my voice.

    Someone did however listen to Emily Mcclure. She’s a blogger over at Bustle and she decided to dispel the myths about the sephora advertised brand once and for all. She gave the products a try and we watched her hair transform right before our eyes. It was almost like watching a frog turn into a prince(okay bad example but you get my drift). Not only did her hair look 100x better but you could see with each photo her hair had soared her confidence through the roof. Wen is sold online via Guthy-Renker.

    Yeonmi Park was born in 1993 in North Korea. Her father and her mother were respected members of the working class during this time until her father eventually led a metal smuggling operation in the capital of North Korea as a result of desperation for providing for his family. The economic collapse is what prompted Ms. Park’s father to start dealing in illegal transactions. Though his desperation to provide for his family was strong, Ms. Park’s father eventually was caught and was punished by being forced to work in one of North Korea’s labor camps. During the Kim Dynasty, Ms. Park told the News.AU team as she remembers the exact moment that her attitude of the Kim Dynasty changed. This moment was when Ms. Park was given accessed to the otherwise illegal movie, Titanic. This movie gave her a taste of culture as well as a taste of freedom.

    More info on Yeonmi here: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Park_Yeon-mi

    The suffering and starvation that Yeonmi and her mother suffered through are what encouraged them to bribe a guard in order to smuggle themselves across the North Korean border. Though Yeonmi and her mother’s end goal was China, Yeonmi’s story was still far from over as the two of them were then subjected to become a part of the illegal business was human trafficking. According to a retelling by The Reason, Yeonmi eventually escaped this and arrived in China with a taste for freedom. By 2009, Ms. Park became a resident of South Korea and became a dedicated human rights activist who became passionate of helping and educating others of the horrors that she suffered.

    Though Yeonmi is not the only North Korean defector, she is one of the youngest as well as the most involved in helping other defectors. Park’s new book is called In Order to Live: A North Korean Girl’s Journey to Freedom and tells her story to the world which has been an inspiration to millions of individuals. Everyday Ms. Park is grateful for her freedom and only wants others who have suffered to became free just like her. Ms. Park, since defecting, has not only risked her career [see, http://www.nknews.org/2015/02/yeonmi-park-hits-back-at-north-korean-video/], but also her life with trying to help others.

This project’s goal was to raise money in order to help shelters provide aid to the numerous animals left without shelter during the cold season. The primary cause for so many animals being homeless in New York City is because the shelters are all running at maximum capacity already. The few that have space are not properly equipped to handle taking in anymore, which leads to starving and sick animals on the streets.

    The goal of the campaign was to bring many people together from all over the New York area and donate as much as possible to help animal shelters foster more animals. The campaign was started in early January and had a humble goal of $5000. This money would be used for food, medicine, blankets, and more for any unfortunate animals.
