Securus setting Pace for Prison Technologies Industries

The prison technological industry has for a long time suffered criticism for being very unfair to customers who have no other option than to use them to keep connected to their loved ones in correctional facilities. So, what criteria do clients use to make such criticism? Clients with bad experiences with one company, will normally use the same experiences to judge other players in the industry. The case is no different or the industries providing technological solutions for prisons.


For many years, one rotten potato (GTL), has been used to judge other companies in the industry. The company has had a negative reflection on the industry as a whole by failing to change their ways. In the year 1998, GTL was charged for some wrongdoings that directly affected clients who used their services. They were found to wrongfully add seconds to calls double charge calls, and even overcharge their clients.


After being convicted, GTL received strict warning and was even penalized. However, so many years have now passed and still no change is seen in their behavior. With the continued misbehavior on the part of GTL, they have tainted the reputation of the whole industry. Most people only seek the services of the prison technology solutions companies now because they have no otherwise. However, what they do not understand is that the wrongdoings of one company are not continued or even tolerated by the rest. In bid to win back the trust of clients in this industry, Securus had to do something. They had to show the whole nation that they were different from GTL and did not tolerate what the company was doing. They first did this by earning themselves an A+ rating from BBB. The shaming of GTL then followed. We can only hope that Securus will continue changing the impression that people have on this industry.

BMG Chairman Ricardo Annes Guimarães Receives Belo Horizonte’s Diploma Of Merit


BMG Bank President and Chairman, Ricardo Guimarães has been changing the image of banks in Brazil for the last 18 years. He is following in the footsteps of his Grandfather and father. Ricardo has won several awards over the years, but he was especially moved when the City Council of Belo Horizonte honored Guimarães with the Diploma of Merit.

Ricardo Guimarães has put a face on Brazilian banking. A face that represents the people of Brazil. He is one of the bankers that wants to help the people of Brazil get through these difficult economic times. BMG Bank under his guidance is helping people get loans if they have a job and are willing to use their income as collateral. Guimarães spreads that message through his love of football, volleyball, and tennis.

Omar Boraie Breathes New Life into Old City Center


Home to one of New Jersey’s oldest colleges, a bustling town center, and within convenient rail distance of Manhattan, New Brunswick, NJ seems almost organically poised to have grown into the sort of high energy locale young professionals seek out to put down their roots. But it wasn’t always so. Only a few short decades ago the New Brunswick of the 1970’s held a bleaker reputation, due in part to issues with crime and plummeting property values, and interest in development projects inevitably suffered as a result.

Enter Omar Boraie, real estate developer and president of Boraie Development. Boraie, who planted his own roots in New Brunswick some 50 years ago when he emigrated from Egypt to pursue higher education, was and remains a principle force in raising New Brunswick up to to the business, academic, and cultural center that it is today.

Boraie’s real estate projects in New Brunswick began ambitiously with the Albany Street Plaza Tower One, the current home of Boraie Development. Replacing a ramshackle block of long-abandoned structures, Boraie’s Albany Street offices provided the sort of Class A office space needed to both bring in and retain commercial the interests so vital to New Brunswick’s status as a premiere mercantile hub. Omar later expanded on this success with Tower Two, which was completed in 2003.

While his successes in commercial building projects are undeniable, Omar Boraie’s role in bringing much needed residential real estate to New Brunswick is an equally important and much needed contribution. The One Spring Street Condominium tower, completed by Boraie Development in 2007, proved a resounding success. The upscale, New York style tower, which holds 121 residential units along with ample space for offices and retail, sold out in an astounding two months.

Boraie Development’s most recent project, the 17-story luxury high rise christened The Aspire, is once again breathing new life into New Brunswick, and will no doubt further strengthen Omar’s legacy of fostering improvement and growth in the once-struggling university town. Officially opened for leasing this year, The Aspire, like Omar’s Spring Street tower, is poised to become the premiere residential space in downtown New Brunswick, and signals Boraie’s continued relevance to the future of the city.

Kyle Bass And His Stupid Mistakes

Kyle Bass was at one time one of the most respected hedge-fund managers. Unfortunately, it is no longer the case; he is now the laughing stock among his peers. He bounced into the hedge-fund limelight after successfully making a prediction about the subprime mortgage crisis of 2008 and managed to make a lot of money out of it. Before that, he has also made a stint as a celebrated movie script writer and director and had been nominated for awards in both roles for the Sixth Sense. Many people considered him an immensely gifted man who could do nothing wrong until he proved them otherwise.

His magic touch has now withered and instead, he has turned himself into a media puppet who continues to taint his once professional image in front of the media cameras. He has been very regular on television stations and is seen giving his ‘professional’ opinion on the current trends in the financial world.

To make matters worse, he has recently involved himself with very bad company as that of Argentinian despot, Cristina Fernández de Kirchner. Regardless of many financial experts terming her as financially illiterate, Bass has made her his bosom friend and has been defending her unwise moves in every media chance he gets regardless of the fact that she has made many suffer in Argentina out of her stupid moves.

When her country defaulted on its sovereign debt for the second time in a period of thirteen years, he defended her, and many felt that he had lost touch when it comes to being realistic. He is also known to have shifted blame on passengers when General Motors made defective airbags that kill passengers so as to make good on his investment in the company. In simple terms, this guy can be described as just greedy and wants to make money for himself regardless of whether others are dying.

In the very recent past, he has been involved in a scheme to short change pharmaceutical companies by short-selling their stocks and eventually challenging one or more of their patents via his organization, the Coalition for Affordable Drugs. The primary purpose of this smearing campaign is to make the pharmaceutical companies lose on their stocks while he makes millions. The other possible result is the drug companies becoming crippled and being unable to fund their medical research.

The worst thing with Kyle is the fact that he does all that in total disregard of whether the patients who rely on the drugs will suffer or not. When asked what his motive was at first, he was quick to point out that he was doing the whole thing for a noble cause but later on admitted that he was interested in the money he could make. Experts in the pharmaceutical industry dismissed him saying that the patient’s interests were never included in his selfish agenda and that he was bound to make their lives more miserable as opposed to helping them out.

The Literary Life of Jamie Garcia Dias

The long and impressive literary life of Jaime Garcia Dias, the Brazilian author who, at age 45, now has 20 books to his credit, began early. He was born in Rio De Janeiro and was raised with a love of learning by his parents. His mother was a writer and his father was a notable architect. Both instilled in him the importance of study and of dedication to his craft as the only way to really ensure future success. Dias credits his parents’ influence to his success as a writer, which recently was acknowledged with his receipt of the ABC Award of Brazil Literature Award.

Dias has always loved learning, which is evident in the detailed style of his work. After his early education in Brazil, he became a teacher at the Carioca Literary School, which is a type of prep school for students who want to have a life in literary pursuits. Dias taught at the school for five years and worked hard to instill a love of literature in his students.

Early Influences

Much of Dias’ success as an author has come from his innate creativity as well as his study of the great authors who preceded him. The list of great writers that he names as his influences includes Jorge Amado (1912-2001), whose comical and whimsical books include the influential work “Dona Flor and Her Two Husbands” (1966). That book, which told the tale of a woman who remained emotionally involved with the ghost of her dead husband even as she had a relationship with a real life lover, was later made into a film which enjoyed great critical success internationally.

It’s certainly no mystery why Dias would cite Amado as a critical influence, as that author’s humorous take on daily life in Brazil has obviously had an impact on the style of the younger author’s writing.

There’s no question that today Dias is making his own impact on the literary world, as his recent award certainly attests to. With a bright future ahead, Dias will certainly continue to make an impact and seek to influence the young writers who follow him.
