Forefront Capital Announces New Partnership

Forefront is an investment institution that was started by Brad Reifler. Since it was started several years ago, and it has managed to expand its services to more consumers. This year in February, the investment institution announced that it will be making a new partnership. According to the CEO of the company, Forefront Capital will be working closely with Easter Seals Dixon Center, in a partnership that is expected to start soon. The partnership will also include a donation of three million dollars in cash.

Forefront Capital doesn’t do these things every day, and it must have been impressed by what their new partner has been doing in the past. According to Brad Reifler, the company was greatly impressed by what Easter Seals Dixon Center has been doing for the military and veterans in the United States of America.

The military and the veterans are a neglected community in the United States. Many individuals and organizations have no clue what these individuals have to sacrifice a lot just to ensure that the country is served well. Easter Seals Dixon Center understood the need to appreciate this group, and that’s why they selflessly took the opportunity to highlight the potential these group has and also creating opportunities.

The company has managed to work nationally and even in the local communities to break down all the barriers and then connect these individuals and the concerned organizations to the easily accessible solutions. Just like the other American citizens, military and veterans deserve to have access to education, employment, and healthcare.

While announcing the new partnership, Brad Reifler told everyone that forefront capital had a mission to make sure that they made a big difference in the military and veterans in the United States. However, while in the process of going it, the company also wanted to empower their new partner financially. According to Brad Reifler on social media, partnering with Easter Seals Dixon Center will benefit both the companies, and they will both be empowered financially due to the business sense involved.

For any individual to do well in the tough modern times, finances play an important role. If the veterans and the military want to be empowered, the first thing they should get is financial stability. If this will be achieved, it will be quite easy to reach the other goals. Forefront Capital Advisory wants to make sure that these important people in the society get this help. The employees from the company and also the customers who are served by the company also want to take part in the important cause.

Brad Reifler is the founder and CEO of Forefront Capital. Before starting the company, he was working in the same industry, getting the expertise and knowledge needed to run such an institution. He is well educated and qualified.

Getting to Know the Human Rights Foundation and Founder Thor Halvorssen

The Human Rights Foundation (HRF) is an organization committed to promoting democracy and personal freedom around the world. It does this a number of ways, but largely through the dedication of its founder, Thor Halvorssen.
Established in 2005, the HRF helps promote human rights through principles that were first defined in the International Covenant on Civil and Political Rights. This treaty was adopted by the United Nations in 1966, although it would not come into practical use for another decade. Since its implementation, the treaty has been signed or at least recognized by most of the nations of the world. The HRF is a nonprofit organization that is also committed to avoiding partisanship politics.
The specific goals of the HRF include the promotion of citizen self-determination, freedom of speech and expression, equal treatment under the law and the abolition of slavery and torture. It works particularly hard to free political prisoners and has heavy involvement in areas that are known for serious violations of human rights. It attempts to achieve its goals through an assortment of educational and outreach programs, including seminars and films. In its effort to bring about greater awareness of the nature and vulnerability of freedom, it reaches out to anyone willing to listen, from advocates and national leaders to members of the public.
Thor Halvorssen Mendoza, who is better known by his shortened name, knows very well about the nature of human rights violations.
Halvorssen’s commitment to human rights began with his creation of the Foundation for Individual Rights in Education, which came into existence five years before the HRF. Four years after the establishment of the HRF, he founded the Oslo Freedom Forum, which conducts conferences throughout the world. Born in Venezuela and educated in the United States, Halvorssen has discussed the subject of human rights in his numerous newspaper articles and television appearances. However, he is primarily known as a film producer. His films include “Freedom’s Fury” and “The Singing Revolution.”

Coffee You Can Feel Good About Drinking

Coffee culture is a part of almost every adult’s life, but it is now trendier then it has ever been before. The type of bean you grind in the morning or the flavor can define who you are in the coffee world. However, coffee can also be healthy it turns out giving thousands of people an excuse for drinking their cup every morning, and at lunch, and during the noon slouch.

There have always been hundreds of different coffee flavors on the market from many different brands, but most people did not think about coffee as a healthy morning choice until now. There is now a new product created by Organo Gold that is a refreshing new spin on the coffee industry. This product infuses its tea and coffee products with
Ganoderma Lucidum, a 4,000 old Chinese herb. The herb works as an adaptogen and an antioxidant helping the body function properly and therefore a person’s overall health when ingested regularly.

Due to the addition of the antioxidant in its products, Organo Gold users have reported better health in the face of many diseases including diabetes, low energy levels, high blood pressure, high cholesterol, liver dysfunction, asthma, migraines, and kidney dysfunction.

Outside of the health benefits, one of the best things about Organo Gold is that there are plenty of flavors out there.

Organo Gold was founded by Bernado T. Chua who has spent the last few decades working within the world of multi-level marketing, in addition to Bernie’s quest for truly healthy coffee. He previously worked with the Gano Excel line of products eventually growing to be president of that company in the USA before eventually starting the Organo Gold range on his own.  In fact the company has expanded a lot recently, and Bernardo Chua has seen them open up shops in Turkey as well.

Chua founded Organo Gold in 2008 and quickly watched his innovative product take off. Today the company is in 35 countries on six of the seven continents. In 2014 he entered the Asian market and found success in Singapore. In just five short years he spread his company across the world and it is still growing.  Bernie’s twitter is a great gauge of how far they’ve come.  Otherwise there are the rousing Bernardo Chua speeches online that showcase how far they’ve come and how far his mission extends.

Securus Challenges GTL

Securus Technologies, known as a technological giant for law enforcement agencies and correctional institutions in the United States, has issued a challenge to Global Tel Link, their main competitor in this niche market. Securus wants to settle the dispute about which of the two tech companies has the largest set of offerings to their clients, which is the most technologically sophisticated, and which has the best relationship between staff and customer.

Richard A. Smith, CEO at Securus Technologies, claimed that GTL has relied upon the tricks of lawyers in order to maintain their claims that they provide services and products focused around inmate communication that are as good as their own. Smith claims to want an impartial judgment to determine the differences between either corporation. With more than $670 million invested in the expansion and development of Securus, and GTL investing less than 10% of that, the comparability of the two seems quite low.

From investigations into their shared consumer bases and have learned that many correctional facilities have left GTL in recent years for the offerings at Securus. A main draw is their Voice Over Internet Protocol platforms that are routinely serviced with updates and maintenance, connecting them with ease to other facilities. But the biggest reason for leaving seemed to be Securus’ commitment to customer service, economic pricing, and commitment to adapting new technologies as per the needs of their customers and the demands of the correctional field. Their video visitation software speaks to this meeting of demands as does their sophisticated inmate phone calls platform. Learn more about their video technology here: https://securustech.net/videovisitation

Smith claims that while these respondents verify his claims that Securus is a superior provider of tech solutions, there are also concrete numbers to back them up. In a ratio of gains and loses between the companies, Securus has the upper hand, gaining $2.74 from lost GTL business. GTL, however, only has gains $1.00 in business from former Securus customers. This shows a clear preference in spending in favor of Securus. 

Though the offer has been extended to GTL to take part in a technology bake off to display the truth behind their numbers, Smith expects the competition to politely decline the offer, which is what their competitor has done.

Their reach affects the daily lives of 1.2 million inmates and the staff who police and monitor them with their communication platforms, biometric analyses and technological solutions that foster a relatively safe environment that also benefits the surrounding area.

The Tech Services of Coriant

Coriant is a company that stands out on its own as it is rather new. It has only been an independent company for a little less than three years now. Despite this though, it has been around for some time. It started up as part of the Nokia Siemens company and was the networking fiber optics department within the business. When the Nokia Siemens Networks receive new ownership, Coriant split off and became its own company. When this happened, the realization of needing a new, yet experienced CEO proved to be an important decision. Shaygan Kheradpir is the individual they settled on and he has helped guide the business to new heights and give it a specific direction.

Coriant focuses on the production of hardware and software to improve optical transmission, including voice, mobile and data networks. With the growing requirement of data networks throughout the world, having a system capable of supporting more and more data transfers is important. This is where the fiber optics networking comes in.

The company originally started in the late 1990s creating the networking for Siemens. As the company created Nokia and worked into the mobile phone industry, the networking became more and more necessary. That is why it has been able to spin off and become its own business upon the new ownership of Siemens.

Coriant went after Shaygan Kheradpir due to his tech background. He has a Ph.D. in electrical engineering. He also worked with Verizon, helping the company develop its FiOS fiber optics system. Plus, all of this has made it possible to grow the business as Shaygan has experience working on a board of directors and as the CEO. He sat on Barclay’s board of directors and was the CEO for Juniper Networks.  As the need for more data networking increases, the need for more hardware requirements will increase as well, which offers a nice boost to the Coriant business and what it is able to do. So, unlike other tech companies based someone on past technology, the need to continually improve data transfer rates is always on the forefront of the tech world, and it is why Coriant is going to be a major player for years to come.
