Investing In Consumer Response And Safety

Securus: Over 600 Million Invested In Prison Technology

 

The Securus Technologies agency is a lead innovator in safety equipment, design and engineering. The agency is leveraging a tremendous platform today due to its many contracts and its ability to outsmart the criminal world when they are housed in private facilities across the United States.

 

The day-to-day security work of Securus is only possible with a large investment to build and create systems of safety. These systems have thus far consumed over $600 million as money invested into development, creativity and research. The Securus agency has also put this money to good use.

 

 

What Money Means To A Larger Infrastructure

 

We’d be fools to believe that sustaining over 2,600 contracts was a matter of simply having a product or service alone. The reality is that Securus used its working capital to expand beyond the imagination of criminals. The agency works directly to provide safety and security with and around inmates.

 

The Hollywood stories that derive from this are endless, but these stories also take into account the truth. The billions Securus earned in its life has been leveraged for development. Criminal safety can never remain stagnant as professionals in crime will advance their own illegal activities.

 

 

Why Are These Systems Important

 

The single method that keeps Securus Technology a leader in its industry is found in innovation. Today’s voice, video and automated technologies have to be bigger and better tomorrow. There is no time for resting when criminals around the world aren’t. You have to be prepared.

 

Think again if you thought the safety you have was a matter of being American. Behind every safe community, school or highway, there’s a larger infrastructure working toward a single objective. Safety requires work, innovation and progress in order to keep up with the criminal minds that emerge everyday.

Each of the designers ranges from different walks of life, ranging from China to Maine, and many other places, so there is no great surprise that there about the diverse bursts of ideas, techniques, silhouettes that influence their design and have amazed their audiences.

They manage to impress some big names such as Ms. J Alexander who many might recognize from the popular show America’s Next Top Model and Sara Kozlowski, who is the Director of Education and Professional Development at CFDA.

All the hard work that was put into class, workshops, internships and hours of labor to prepare them for those 15 minutes of showing their vision for the future of fashion to associates, possible professional mentorship, and live streaming to the world.

About the Academy of Art University

The School for advertising art was founded in 1929 by Richard S. Stephens, who was a painter and Sunset magazine editor.

He believed that with the right enthusiasm, work ethic, and coaching, any inspiring artist could pick up the skill sets they need to become the professionals they always wanted to be.
He also thought that students should be accepted into the school regardless if they have a portfolio or not, but foremost he believed that art education should be taught by true professionals.

It was in 1992 when his granddaughter, Elisa Stephens took over and increased the number of students attending from 2000 to 18,000 by 2012, and in 2005 they started participating in the New York Fashion week events twice a year.

Academy of Art University has received accreditations from the Western Association of Schools.

%7 of their students were able to complete a 4-year degree, and 31% completed the 4-year degree with 6 years.

The Flexibility of WAX and the Brain Behind it – Malcom CasSelle

In a world where game assets, like skins, objects, currency, and items, can all be sold and bought, a new marketplace was born: The Virtual Game Assets Market.

 

Most of these game assets have real value, and an investor can use game items to actually make a significant profit out of pure pixels on the screen.

 

This market has existed for almost a decade now, but the Worldwide Asset eXchange, one of the biggest platforms to maintain a control of the assets of this marketplace, was just recently created for investors and enthusiasts to jump right in a start participating.

 

Also called “WAX,” the Worldwide Asset eXchange is decentralized, which means it allows anyone, anywhere in the world, to participate and share their own in-game items, prices, and personal goals. It is one of the most complete, simple-to-use and easy-to-learn platforms in the market, and many enthusiasts are getting into the virtual game assets market because of the availability of the WAX.

 

Not only is it useful for buying and commercializing in-game skins, but it can also be used for cryptocurrencies. Not only was that a big step up for its functionality and flexibility of use, but now it can also “Tokenize” physical assets in games as well. Many developers have faced barriers when trying to tokenize in-game items. The most significant one being: How to ensure these tokens are monitored and ensured on the blockchain? WAX was one of the pioneers in that the developers found a way to tokenize these assets.

 

The enormous success and flexibility of the WAX portal would not have been possible without the brilliant mind behind the company: The mind of Malcolm CasSelle, the President of “WaxToken (Worldwide Asset eXchange).”

 

Malcolm CasSelle is an entrepreneur that began working as the Senior Vice President and General Manager of the family business’ Digital Media SeaChange International. There, he became a fantastic business developer and learned many things about different markets, including the one that his company controls today. Before becoming the President of WAX, he was the Chief Technology Officer (CTO) and President of a ventures firm, the New Ventures at Tronc, Inc., which was formerly named Tribune Publishing.
