Whitney Wolfe Herd Pushes App Only Dating Community

Dating apps have evolved in a major way. More people are getting dates through their phones, and it has become acceptable as the norm when it comes to finding something new. Whitney Wolfe Herd is one of the women that have enhanced technology with app development, and Bumble was her tool to change the dating app game.

Whitney Wolfe Herd knows a lot about dating apps because this has been a great part of her adult life. She has put her time into other companies, but everyone that sees the innovative spark in Whitney Wolfe knows that helping someone find their match is where Whitney Wolfe Herd appears to shine. She is the entreprenuer that has edited the play book that comes with the standard dating app.Herd has improvised. She decided to make her own rules when it came to dating app rules, and so far this has been a very good thing for women that were seeking something that looks different.

The dating app game has evolved because so many singles have transitioned from the internet. In fact, Bumble is not even accessible from an Internet site. People have to use the app in order to utilize it. This makes it different from the other apps like eHarmony and Plenty of Fish where people can sign into a website if they do not have a phone. With Bumble there was a big push by Whitney Wolfe to actually make her technology something that was app-based only. She did not want to go through the hassle of creating a website platform that could possibly lead people away from the app. Bumble Founder Whitney Wolfe’s Whirlwind Wedding Was a True Celebration of Southern Italy

One of the main reasons that she realized it was not going to be feasible to utilize a website had to do with location. People that are single are mobile. They’re on the go. It makes sense to have an app where the location and the miles between them and their potential match is viewable. When they are utilizing a website, however, it is impossible to see where they are. This is why Whitney walk put more focus on an app only based dating community. Billion-Dollar Bumble: How Whitney Wolfe Herd Built America’s Fastest-Growing Dating Ap

She knew that this would be something that made more sense to men and women that were in their twenties. Whitney Wolfe Herd is also someone that is still in her twenties, so she knew exactly how to stay connected with this generation of millennials.

Securus Technologies, Innovation That Delivers A Bright Future

NBC Miami recently featured a story regarding contraband cell phones in prisons. The person interviewed was Robert Johnson, a retired corrections officer. The topic is important to Johnson as he was the victim of a crime involving gunshot wounds in his own home due to retaliation by a former inmate. Johnson believes the targeting was attributed to his position within the correctional facility. His primary role was confiscating contraband, a dangerous job at best. Having confiscated a valuable package from a gang within the prison, the confiscation of the $50,000 package deemed him a target. Being shot over six times in his own home, Johnson made it his mission to stop the problem. After many surgeries and living in pain, he paired with Securus Technologies to spread the news of a proposed solution, which has recently been tested in several Florida facilities. The problem grew so far out of hand, an infant was killed because of violence attributed to a contraband device.


The solution that’s been proposed by Securus Technologies is a device called a Wireless Containment System, or WCS. The device looks and acts as a cell tower within the facility. It’s able to detect the signal coming from the device and block the call or message that’s attempted. A message to the user stating that the call is disconnected plays, rather than the call being connected. The new WCS technology is being tested in several Florida facilities with more planned for the future. Securus Technologies isn’t releasing the actual number of calls blocked, however, it’s believed to be in the billions. Johnson, who now works as a consultant for Securus, is so passionate about his seven-year journey; he’s now trying to get legislation passed that would require the devices in correctional facilities.


Securus Technologies is a Texas-based company that works with thousands of facilities nationwide. The technology they’re most famous for is their telephone service for inmates and other telecommunication products. Video visitation, voicemail and messaging are just a few of the services they offer. Their monitoring services are often praised by customers and facility employees. Making the facilities safer and running smoothly for everyone involved is Securus’ priority. The company’s existence spans a period of over 30 years and can reduce the price of calling and add new technology all the time. Through well-planned acquisitions and innovation, Securus Technologies’ stays ahead of the game and is on the path to a bright future.


Larkin & Lacey

Within the past year, there has been an infinite amount of news pouring in about politicians and politics. The media has been savagely attacking President Trump ever since he ran for election. The news that is put out there by the mainstream media outlets expresses a negative view of President Trump.

There are a few big, alternative media outlets that swing the other way and are avidly pro-Trump. Between the opponents and supporters of President Trump, there has a been a lot of “he-said-she-said” business going on. Read more: Phoenix New Times | Wikipedia

The media outlets have put a microscope on such small, irrelevant details of the presidency, and have made so many dubious claims, that it’s difficult to determine which news stories are relevant and true.

Because of this whole confusing situation with the news that we are being fed, some of us focus on the wrong stories. Some of us completely shut our attention off to the news and choose to live our lives without the opinionated ramblings of the media outlets.

The problem is that we tend to miss out on the news that counts, like how Donald Trump executed a pardon for “America’s Toughest Sheriff”–Sheriff Arpaio, in the summer of 2017. Being in the news is not something new for Sheriff Arpaio. He has been written about since he took the office of Sheriff around 1992.

People who live in and around Maricopa County, the place where he carried out his sick policies, might know a lot about him. However, people who live in other parts of America and other parts of the world may not be familiar with his story.

Sheriff Arpaio intentionally had it in his mind that he wanted to create a legacy of being “America’s Toughest Sheriff.” A stunt that made his jail a tourist attraction was the creation of a tent city. Inmates were forced to sleep in tents outside. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Facebook

Online, there are pictures of the tents. The sides of the tents are rolled up, showing the prisoners sitting on beds. One might say, “Hey, it’s Arizona. Isn’t the weather nice and warm? They aren’t going to die from the cold!” Anybody who says that is naive, and perhaps not a native of the Southwest. The desert that Arpaio’s inmates live in reaches temperatures of about 125 or 135 degrees. It is not an environment that anyone wants to find his or herself in.

In his prisons, inmate have to submit to the compulsive donning of pink clothing—despite gender. Media outlets who are anti-Arpaio claim that this is done to embarrass the inmates. Arpaio claimed that he introduced pink clothing for the inmates because he felt that bright pink would lift up people’s spirits.

There are claims of more insidious things that Arpaio supposedly imposed upon the criminals who were kept under his watch. For example, one very gross and insidious thing that he supposedly did was impose a diet of rotten fruit and mold-ridden bread upon inmates.

Like Sheriff Arpaio intended, the inmates will never forget what he subjected them to.

Desiree Perez, the COO and leader of Roc Nation

Once was a time in society when women were associated with the body while men with the mind. When men were considered to rule the world and everything in it while the women stayed behind to care of the household. The society has now evolved. This is something to be grateful for, and those who yearn to change the world will understand better.

The widespread belief that women and men are equal and should be provided equal opportunities and respect in the political, economic, cultural and social spheres of life has brought about the powerful evolution.

Desiree Perez, also known as Des Perez, was highlighted in a recent Billboard post. The post was celebrating the women in music 2017. Des is one woman who has kicked dogma to the curve. She has become an inspiration to other women far and wide in the world.

She is the CEO of none other than Roc Nation, which is an entertainment Company founded in 2008 by Shawn Carter or otherwise known as Jay Z. Roc Nation consists of roughly 33 clients and includes artists such as Rihanna, DJ Khaled, Shakira, J. Cole, Big Sean among more. It is considered to have a net worth of 21.8 million US dollars.

Des Perez is considered to be a close friend and working partner to Jay Z and has been so for approximately 20 years. She has been the CEO of the company since 2009 due to her fierce negotiating skills, capability with numbers and being a hard worker. It is no surprise, therefore, that she is still around the music world. With her team in hand, she runs the entire operation of the company. She also organizes the production of plays of famous artists in the Tidal App which is under Roc Nation and since her involvement, it has reported an increase of one million trial members.

Eric Lefkofsky Treats a Hole in the Healthcare Industry

In 2014, approximately 14.5 million people in the US living with cancer and that number is predicted to reach around 19 million by 2024. While cancer is something we would prefer not to think about, approximately 40 percent of adults in the United States will receive a diagnosis. Eric Lefkofsky is looking to change how we view and treat cancer and other diseases with his technology driven company Tempus. Tempus looks to revolutionize the healthcare industry to making the piles of data related to healthcare not only accessible but understandable.

While the healthcare industry may appear to be ahead of the times when it comes to technology and data, that is woefully untrue. Eric Lefkofsky quickly learned this after his wife was diagnosed with breast cancer. He realized despite all the tests and information collected about her condition, the information was ineffectively stored even with the aid of electronic health records and this needed to be changed.

Tempus views its product as an operating system for cancer treatment, not only collecting the traditional data in an easier to understand manner but also pushing for less commonly collected information to be utilized and stored such as genetic sequencing. By accessing an individual patient’s genome, doctors can essentially have instructions as to what treatments could work best for their particular disease and also what risks this patient could be facing in the future according to their own DNA.

Before focusing on the healthcare industry, Eric Lefkofsky was already a juggernaut in the field of technology. He left his position of CEO at Groupon to focus on his passion project Tempus. Along with Groupon, he also co-founded the company Lightbank, a technology investor based out of Chicago instead of Silicon Valley that focuses on “disruptive” companies and technologies that change the business dynamic of previously existing industries.

Along with his entrepreneurial skills, Lefkofsky and his wife are dedicated philanthropists. The two are so dedicated that in 2013 they pledged to donate at least half of their accumulated wealth in their lifetimes. The pair have already donated millions to the advancement of cancer treatment.


Betsy DeVos Finds Success in Education, Seeks to Reform Department of Education.

Betsy DeVos is a reformer and she has been one her entire life. So, it only stands to reason that she will be a reformer at the highest levels of political office. President Donald J. Trump nominated Betsy DeVos to the position of Secretary of Education in order to overlook the entire Department of Education. The nomination was largely met with silence as DeVos was not on the national radar. Yet, in nominating Betsy DeVos, President Trump made good on one of his core campaign promises: to give a voice to outsiders who would have otherwise been left behind in the dust. Betsy DeVos got off to a rocky start during her confirmation hearing, but those unwilling to look past that hearing to the greater work of the new Secretary of Education are falling into a trap that few can afford to in this political climate. Rest assured, Betsy DeVos is a political pugilist, a bulldog, and a fighter. Let’s learn more about DeVos’ rise to the highest rungs of the political ladder.


Betsy DeVos comes from Michigan and she was born in a town named Holland. In Michigan (https://www.washingtonpost.com/news/answer-sheet/wp/2017/04/06/what-is-education-secretary-betsy-devos-doing-with-the-rapper-pitbull-in-miami/?utm_term=.dac9eddf93b8), DeVos was raised to follow three important things: family, faith, and her conservative values. Betsy DeVos would take these three traits and focus on them as she grew up which eventually led her to pursue higher education at Calvin College. At Calvin College, Betsy DeVos would first fall in love with politics as she became involved throughout campus. From there, Betsy would go on to lead a political action committee while spending six years as the chairman of the Michigan Republican Party. Betsy DeVos was getting experience and she was using it to engineer her rise to the top, all while becoming one of the most prominent and powerful voice for conservative educational reform known as school choice.


Betsy DeVos says of the future of school choice, made initially popular by Milton Friedman, “I’ve never been more optimistic.” DeVos goes on to point out that there are 33 publicly-funded institutions that follow the school choice program through 17 states. More than a quarter of a million students are enrolled in the aforementioned programs and with DeVos in the Department of Education, those numbers could jump in a large way. DeVos has been effective on the state level and now she is going to be handed the keys to the national program and we expect great changes in the future.

Securus Technologies develops crucial tools in the fight against illegal cell phones

Securus Technologies, one of the nation’s leading providers of prison security systems, has been slowly deploying the first iterations of its Wireless Containment System, a hi-tech solution that enables corrections officers to block unauthorized cellular calls within the nation’s prisons. The system has been years in the making, with Securus having to receive special waivers from the Federal Communications Commission in order to allow the system to operate, on a trial basis, in a few of the nation’s more remote carceral facilities.



A powerful and innovative weapon in the fight against prison gangs


The Wireless Containment System’s strength has turned out to be one of its weaknesses. The system is a straightforwards adaptation of military-grade technology that was used in the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan. First developed to intercept insurgent communications over cellular networks, the system quickly proved itself in battle, helping U.S. troops to intercept enemy communications and pinpoint their locations in ways that were never before possible.


But the system had some serious drawbacks for any attempt at creating a civilian application based on it. It operated by spoofing the signals from network relay towers, tricking all cellular devices within its range of operation into thinking that they were communicating with the nearest tower when, in fact, their calls were being routed through the interception system. The problem was with how effective the system was. Within a radius of up to five miles, the system would attract the signals of all cellular devices, causing them to automatically route their calls through it.


In creating the civilian version, Securus needed to demonstrate that its Wireless Containment System would not interfere with legitimate phone calls taking place outside of the prisons where it is deployed. The company has been able to do this, at least to some extent. With a few kinks left to work out, the system has only been approved for deployment at some of the more remote prison locations. However, Securus believes that all of the problems with interference will be worked out by the middle of next year, opening the way for nationwide deployment of the WCS.


Where it has been installed, the Wireless Containment System has proven to be nearly 100-percent effective in blocking all unauthorized cellular calls. It has also enabled officers to detect the location of all contraband cellular devices within the prisons where it is operational, allowing for the near total confiscation of unauthorized cell phones.


These are very good initial results for a system that has only been in existence for a couple years. Securus had expedited the development of it due to the ongoing threat posed by the ever-increasing number of cell phones in prisons. So far, things are looking quite good for the future of the WCS.

Design’s Cutting Edge: Academy of Art University

New York Fashion Week always brings new names into the spotlight in the fashion industry. New designers of all backgrounds find their designs flaunted by some of the industry’s favorite models. This year’s New York Fashion Week featured several graduates of the Academy of Art University.
The Academy of Art University, founded in San Francisco in 1929, is an educational institute for people looking to work in design, communications, and the arts. Graduates from the Academy of Art University often go on to work on high profile events like the New York Fashion Week.
The Academy of Art University places importance on the diversity of its student body. Among the graduates present at New York Fashion Week was Saya Shen, a designer from Beijing, China. Her designs were shown off alongside those of Carlos Rodriguez, a fashion designer hailing from Mexico City.
The Academy is a popular choice for design hopefuls for many reasons, not the least of which is its unique creative environment. The teachers at the university are experienced and well-regarded in their fields and love imparting their wisdom to the next generation of designers. Most importantly, the employees of the university focus on inclusivity and do not care about the backgrounds of the people they are teaching. This environment allows for the perfect cultivation of another generation of design.
This particular fashion week featured several especially bold designs from Academy graduates. Joanna Jodallah, born in Chicago, IL, designed a lightweight tan shirt inspired by generations of her Palestinian ancestors. Ryan Yu, another designer coming all the way from China, brought a stunning black and white dress designed as an exercise in contrast. Dina Marie Lam of Los Angeles, inspired by the death of her aunt, create modest designs filled with emotion.
All in all, 10 graduates of the Academy of Art University had designs featured in this year’s fashion week. They came from all different kinds of backgrounds to make their names and designs known.
