Lets' get them the life they need

Although I’ve not personally visited anyone in jail or prison; I’m particularly fascinated by all the cutting-edge communication technology innovations developed to smarten the visitation process. Securus Technologies just rolled out yet another smart inmate visitation app. This time, it’s video-enabled! Certainly, it’s smart and different in ways unimaginable. It’s already been downloaded by Android and iPhone users 65,000 times. So, why use Securus inmate visitation app for Android and iPhone? An honest mistake is not using this app. While I cannot speak about prison or jail visitation personally, I have friends and family members who constantly complain about the process. So, think about the savings of visiting your incarcerated loved ones without leaving home, sounds positively convenient? Securus inmate visitation does all this and more as I’ve recently learned.

Just six months after Securus Technologies rolled out its cutting-edge inmate visitation app for Android, it recorded 60,000 downloads. Meanwhile, iOS reached 5,000 downloads. Securus Technologies marketing strategy VP, Russell Roberts elaborated on how the friends and the relatives of inmates will enjoy the “Connect and Serve” experience. Adding that it’ll limit spending on expensive phone calls, traveling and fuel. What’s more, scheduling visits isn’t a daunting activity anymore. It’s compatible with all smart mobile devices, handsets, and tablets powered by iOS or Android. 

Video quality isn’t always agreeable, however, Securus inmate visitation app has advanced settings to enhance connectivity. With this, boosting video call quality is possible. Additionally, it has a “sync” feature which allows callers to store, share and access visitation appointments easily. With the wifi test feature, finding the best connection for improved video quality is viable. In addition, it alerts you of any upcoming visitation appointments. The days of missing an incarcerated loved ones’ birthdays, anniversaries and other celebrations are no more. To download the Google Play app, click here.

A PR Newswire article released earlier this year revealed that Securus Technologies appointed telecommunication powerhouse, John Bell as Senior Sales VP (Vice President) last December. The Holy Cross graduate resume includes telecommunication technology industry heavyweights like IBM, Time Warner Cable, Verizon, etc. With 35+ years helping business operators to transform their organizational culture through performance innovations; Securus Technologies stand to gain from John Bell’s alliance.

New York attorney Ross Abelow recently announced the launch of a “GoFundMe” campaign to aid animal shelters in New York City providing support to homeless animals. The campaign hopes to raise $5000 to benefit shelters in the city.
Mr. Abelow’s decision to spearhead the campaign was motivated by his longstanding involvement with the community and as well as his recognition that shelters in the city are underfunded. Financially-strained, animal shelters in New York City are often unable to add to their numbers because they cannot afford new animals, or because they simply lack the space. Mr. Abelow’s campaign aims to help these shelters alleviate some of their financial woes by supplying money to pay for medical care, vaccines, blankets, and food for the growing number of distressed animals. Since the city has experienced record cold temperatures this year, the campaign comes at a time when homeless animals are particularly vulnerable.

Abelow hopes the campaign serves as a means to prevent animal deaths and to allow shelters to maintain higher numbers of animals in their care. The money raised will go to shelters most in need of funds and will provide services and space for animals who would otherwise be left to become sickened, hungry, or cold.

Apart from his commitment to animal welfare, Mr. Abelow maintains an active legal practice. A New York licensed attorney, Mr. Abelow is experienced in Matrimonial Law, Family Law, Commercial Litigation, and Entertainment Law. He graduated from Brooklyn Law School and was admitted to practice in 1989.

As a partner at the law firm Abelow & Cassandro LLP, Mr. Abelow’s has a deep sense of commitment to the community. Mr. Abelow also actively writes for legal blogs and his personal blog, while maintaining an active presence on social media sites such as Facebook and Mashable.

The campaign is being hosted on the crowdfunding website “GoFundMe.” According to its Wikipedia page, GoFundMe “is a crowdfunding platform that allows people to raise money for events ranging from life events such as celebrations and graduations to challenging circumstances like accidents and illnesses.” Those wishing to contribute to the campaign can do so by visiting the campaign’s website at: https://www.gofundme.com/ross-abelow-pets.

Its well-known and successful infomercials popularly depict gorgeous women tossing around even more gorgeous hair made so after using Wen products. As reported by Bustle, one young hair care user was skeptical and very critical of the infomercials. She doubted that any hair care product could actually produce such glamorous results.

Is there anything people won’t do for their beloved pets? Apparently not, if sales of premium dog food are any indication. Sales for premium dog food have been skyrocketing of late, and it’s a sure sign that pet lovers are willing to pay extra to take care of their beloved furry friends with tasty, high quality food.

The Natural Food Angle

A recent article in www.dailyherald.com http://www.dailyherald.com/article/20151122/business/151129983/

reviewed the premium dog food market, and what’s clear is that this business is really taking off. Premium brands like Beneful are among those that are seeing consumers respond to a commitment to quality, fresh ingredients. Baneful has long used quality ingredients like fresh salmon and chicken in its kibble and canned products, and sales are definitely up.

What’s driving the market may be the overall awareness of people about having a healthy lifestyle that includes a diet of natural, organic foods. Companies like Beneful and newer upstart brands like Blue Buffalo Co. and Fresh Pet are making a strong commitment to using quality and yes, more expensive ingredients in their mixes. What’s clear is that many consumers are not resistant to higher prices when it comes to their dog’s health and welfare.

New Innovations

All of these sales are also driving competition and innovation in this market. Major players like Colgate-Palmolive and Purina are diving in with new ideas for their product lines on walmart, including weight loss dog chow and individualized recipes mixed through website orders. All of this is a sure sign that this hot market is getting hotter, and right now there’s no end in sight.

It’s enough to make that furry best friend bark in delight, especially at dinnertime.
