Scotland Unveils Plans for Universal Income

The future of the global economy is uncertain, but one aspect of it seems to be absolutely unquestionable; artificial intelligence is slowly but surely taking over. As robotics, computers, and machinery continue to replace actual human-beings in a rapidly changing world, where does it leave the people whose jobs are steadily being eliminated? Is the time for skilled laborers truly soon coming to an end? Researchers around the world seem more and more inclined to believe so.
Several Nations have begun to brainstorm how to deal with the inevitable issues the world will be faced with in the not so far distant future. Canada, the United States, Finland and Kenya each ran individual experiments in 2017 deal with Universal Income (Also known as Basic Income). What is Universal Income you might ask? Similar to welfare programs employed by numerous world governments, it is meant to be a periodic and unconditional payment to all citizens of a country in order for all people to afford an equal and healthy living conditions. The payment would more than likely be guaranteed by the government and not based on any amount of work or contribution to society by individuals.
In Scotland over three hundred thousand dollars have been raised so far for the research and development of Universal Income. Glasgow, Edinburgh, Fife, and North Ayrshire will be the first cities in Scotland to explore the possibilities of this plan. Despite the very idea raising several concerns from both Government officials and Scottish citizens, the cities selected for the pilot program will submit their bids within the next three months.
Why even consider such an outlandish idea? Because time may be running out before world Nations are left with giant unemployment and poverty rates in the world of the future. Prime Minister Nicola Sturgeon addressed the program in his statement, “It might turn out not to be the answer, it might turn out not to be feasible. But as work changes as rapidly as it is doing, I think its really important that we are prepared to be open-minded about the different ways that we can support individuals to participate fully in the new economy.”

OneLogin’s Incredible Year

2017 was a great year for OneLogin. The cloud based identity and access management provider had many highlights from the past year. There are seven highlights in particular that stand out from the rest.

For starters, the company hired a new CEO. In August the company announced that founder Thomas Pedersen decided to step down as CEO and Brad Brooks would be his replacement. The change seems like a great idea considering Brooks has been leading global technology companies to success for a quarter of a century.

OneLogin also received a lot of praise for the way it treats its employees. Fortune Magazine ranked the tech company in its top 10 places to work in the Bay area. OneLogin is no stranger for being recognized as a great place for employees. It has received four awards on this subject in the past two years.

OneLogin had a good year on the product side as well. In April, it released Adaptive Authentication, a next generation multi-factor authentication functionality. Adaptive Auth made a huge impact on the industry in 2017. It was the topic of conversation at Gartner IAM 2017.

One of the companies main goals was the improvement of web access management. Though many organizations have embraced cloud technology they still have to rely on on-prem applications. Users are able to connect to the OneLogin Cloud Directory while also being able to access legacy applications. Hopefully every year will be as eventful as 2017 for the tech company.

Former Florida Correctional Officer Leads Campaign to Eliminate Illegal Cell Phones from Prisons

Securus Technologies is ranked as the industry leader when it comes to products, services, and solutions designed to enhance the operation of correctional institutions. Included among the solutions offered by Securus Technologies are services and products designed to improve institutional security. These solutions also work to enhance public safety as well.

 

One of the effective, important solutions created by Securus Technologies is its Wireless Containment System. The Wireless Containment System from Securus Technologies is designed to identify and eliminate illegal mobile phones from correctional institutions.

 

The reality is that illegal mobile devices within the walls of correctional facilities is a major problem in this day and age. As part of its own effort to bring its Wireless Containment System to prisons and jails across North America, Securus Technologies conducted its own analysis of the extent of the problem of cell phones in correctional facilities.

 

This analysis revealed that during a one year period of time, Securus Technologies intercepted an astounding 1.7 million illegal communications by inmates in correctional facilities. What makes this data even more alarming is that these 1.7 interceptions occurred at only eight correctional facilities. In other words, this analysis by Securus Technologies really only speaks to what is the tip of the iceberg when it comes to illegal mobile devices being used in prisons and jails in the United States.

 

Securus Technologies is headquartered in Dallas. The company is the largest provider of a broad spectrum of services, products, and solutions for correctional institutions and law enforcement agencies in the United States.

 

The research undertaken by Securus Technologies comes into sharp focus when a person considered the case of Robert Johnson. Johnson was a highly respected, hard working correctional officer in the state of Florida. One day at work, Johnson discovered a box containing contraband that was intended for the inmate population. The efforts of Johnson kept about $50,000 of illegal contraband out of the hands of offenders.

 

What Johnson was not aware of at the time was that the inmate who was trying to get the contraband into the facility already had an illegal cell phone in his possession. With the illicit mobile phone, the inmate contacted a fellow gang member, a man who was not incarcerated.

 

The inmate ordered a hit on Johnson. After issuing the order, the fellow gang member broke into Johnson’s house early one morning. He shot the correctional officer multiple times, nearly killing him.

 

Since the incident, Johnson has made bringing attention to the serious problem of illegal cell phones inside correctional institutions his mission in life. He speaks across the country on this very serious problem. His person story is really making people focus on the need to eradicate illegal mobile devices from correctional facilities.

 

LEADING THE AMERICAN INSTITUTE OF ARCHITECTS TO GREENER PASTURES

Some time back, many people in the United States held that architecture was a lowly course that didn’t deserve to be taught in institutions. It was treated as a side course that only those who did not have another option could study to support themselves and their families. Today, with the help of the American Institute of Architects, the perception towards the course has been changed, and people now treat the course with the respect that it deserves. The change in perception is partially the reason why many people are opting to study the course with the hope of coming up with spectacular designs that will stand for decades and be admired by generations.

The American Institute of Architects (AIA), which is headed by Robert Ivy, works hard to teach the society how to come up with fabulous architectural designs as well as how the community can attain support from the government.

George Soros: The Giving Man

Being born in Nazi-occupied Hungary, George Soros saw the horrors of Nazism.

He witnessed the brutal treatments that happened to the citizenry there that the Nazis had placed upon them.

Given that the country was under Communist rule in 1947, George Soros left his Hungarian homeland to the United States for better opportunities.

Soon to become commonplace historical fact, George Soros was fortunate to make a decent living on Wall Street.

Due to his experience on Wall Street, this would then lead him to build a reputation that would be second to none, in being at the right place, at the right time.

In 1992, George Soros had strategically bet $1 billion against the British pound, at the right place, at the right time.

Because of this, his new nickname, “the man who broke the Bank of England”.

However, George Soros had other aspirations other than breaking The Bank of England: one of which was being charitable.

In fact, his main efforts was and still is to promote human rights and democracy throughout the world: this is being successfully achieved through the Open Society Foundations, beginning in 1984, when it was first founded.

It was first largely closeted as to how much he had deposited into the Open Society Foundations over the course of two decades.

However, that number can finally be revealed: $18 billion.

 

Taking Action

During the panic ebola outbreak, the Open Society Foundations was successful in funding treatment centers for the 2014 ebola outbreak.

The Open Society Foundations also describes itself as a defender against “hate incidents”, a mission that has become a relative new concern as of recent due to the 2016 election.

Mr. Soros of The Open Society Foundations is intently keen to prevent that type of criminal activity with the commitment of $10 million to stand by that action, and learn more about George Soros.

His political views are very much in support of the Democratic Party.

During the 2016 election, his support to be focused towards Hillary Clinton and her fellow Democratic cohorts during the 2016 election.

 

Foes of the Open Society

No one is without enemies: that also includes George Soros.

Most of his political enemies are aligned of the conservative political stance.

Most of George Soros’s enemies usually accused him trying to circumvent the national borders in order to take control of the countries through the European border.

 

Charitable Causes

The impact of the charity cannot be measured….simply.

The Open Society Foundations has more global impact than the Ford Foundation.

The Open Society Foundations spends $900 million annually, which is more than what it is legally required of the charity itself to advance its charitable causes.

The Open Society Foundations pledges to fund another $2 billion investment over several upcoming years, and Soros’s lacrosse camp.

Through Open Society Foundations, George Soros is closely aligned and completely focused on these issues that are, at present, incredibly of grand importance to him.

With George Soros closely leading his own foundation, The Open Society Foundations is can maneuver towards the charitable wishes that it states that it is fighting for, and https://twitter.com/georgesoros.
