GTL, one of the prison communications industry‘s minor players, was recently taken to task by its larger competitor, Securus Technologies. Securus issued a challenge for GTL and itself to engage in a technological showdown. Securus suggested that the two companies pit their respective video visitation technologies against one another, to be judged by a third party. Despite the level-playing-field offer from Securus, GTL flatly declined to participate. Securus interpreted this to be vindication of its products and a de facto admission on the part of GTL that its video visitation technology is subpar.
Saving inmates money and generating income for prisons
Since its rollout over a decade ago, Securus’ video visitation software has proven enormously successful. This is due to its dual purpose of serving the inmates themselves as well as serving the needs of the institutions that employ it.
The video visitation system is capable of saving inmates and their families thousands of dollars per year while extending them the capability to stay in nearly uninterrupted contact with each other. This unprecedented level of communications capability between inmates and the outside world has materially contributed to a reduction in disciplinary actions and recidivism in prisons that have installed Securus’ system.
However, the institutions themselves also stand to gain, often handsomely. This is because the jails and prisons where the system is installed typically get to keep a fraction of the cost of every phone call. What’s brilliant about video visitation is that it is actually creating demand that simply didn’t exist before. This is due to the reductions in cost but also to the fact that the technology itself allows for a new means of communication between inmates and loved ones that simply wasn’t possible before. In some cases, these added fees from video visitations can amount to tens of thousands of dollars per year.
If you are a reader, you must have come across some writings about Kabbalah by various people. There is a lot of information about Kabbalah on the internet and the Social Media. Though much has been written about Kabbalah, there are still many who do not know what is all about the Kabbalah. It is even unethical that some writers do know nothing about the missions of Kabbalah but still go ahead to write what is wrong. Here is the simple information about Kabbalah and its tasks in this world. First, to have a firm understanding of what Kabbalah is let me take you to the beginning so that we can know where it originated.
Kabbalah centre was started in 1922. The teacher who began Kabbalah is Rav Yehuda Ashlag. He is the first person who was considered the master of Kabbalah. Before those years the Kabbalah wisdom existed but only a few people knew. The knowledge had not been entirely widespread to the whole world. At that time Rav Yehuda made a decision to make the knowledge and wisdom of Kabbalah to be known to various people across the world. He did that by making Kabbalah modern. It is wise to pass knowledge to others so that there is continuity. So it came a time when Yehuda decide to give the wisdom of Kabbalah to Rav Yehuda Tzvi who was his student so that he can continue to enlighten the people.
It is an organization that is non-profitable. The teachers of the Kabbalah always strive to make the wisdom understood by many people from all races and background. There is no discrimination regarding understanding Kabbalah. All it takes is for one to be dedicated to learning the ways and everything will be okay in the life of learner. Once you learn the teachings, you should apply them to your entire life. If you perform this, your life will be fulfilled, and you will be able to live and make the world a good living place for you and even for others.
There are a lot of lessons that are taught in the Kabbalah Centre. The experience has been designed for years by people who have the wisdom of Kabbalah. The meaning of Kabbalah is a variety of things for different people. The teachings are based on knowledge that is universal and is according to the teachings of the Bible. However, as a student, you will get a lot of wisdom that will help you live in this world comfortable and face the challenges of this world. Students will get instructions that are fit to enable them to live in this harsh world without a lot of issues.

About a year ago, Livio Bisterzo set out to create a healthy snack food item that would also have a good societal impact as well. He consulted with other health food experts. They started their mission my deciding that they wanted to use the chickpea as the central ingredient in their snack food. The chickpea is very valuable in the vegan food world for a couple of reasons. The first reasons being that it really packs a punch when it comes to nutritional value. The chickpea is high in protein. It is also very versatile. The chickpea can be made into just about any food product and used to imitate just about anything.
This led the CEO of Green Park Brands to create a product called Hippeas. Hippeas are quick on the go snack designed for everyday consumption. Hippeas are completely vegan. They are also gluten free. One might assume that the chickpea puffs don’t pack a very big punch when it comes to nutritional value. This is simply not true. Each back of hippies has at least 3 grams of protein. This is all while being under 100 calories per serving.
All of this has led to Hippeas becoming a very popular option for healthy eaters that want a snack that they can eat anywhere and take anywhere. It even helped the company gain the attention of a major food retailer, Starbuck’s. The coffee retailer has decided to include the chickpea-based product in its line of on the go snacks that it has available. This will be a huge boost for the company when it comes to sales.
Starbuck’s started by ordering Hippeas to sell in over 7,500 stores nationwide. Starbuck’s in constantly searching for new snack products that are healthy for their customers to purchase. This is a high selling item for Starbuck’s with a good profit margin. Hippeas fits this mold perfectly because of the fact that it is a healthy and nutritious that is easy to take anywhere. People also love the fact that the snack is vegan and gluten-free.
Hippeas have been getting a lot of recognition in the health food snack industry as of late. This is not just because of the fact that they are a great product. The company is also very socially conscious. The have made it a mission to give back a portion of the proceeds from the sale of Hippeas to chickpea farmers in Africa.
