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

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.

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.
