Securus Helps Our Law Office Reach New Clients

I have used Securus in my law office for a few years now, and I have found them to be the perfect foil for my calling needs. We pick up new clients often who are starting cases in days or weeks, and we must call them to learn how to manage their cases. I have had quite a lot of success with Securus, and I know they are giving me something that I cannot get anywhere else. This article explains how our office became more efficient with Securus.

 

#1: We Cannot Drive There

 

We cannot drive to the jail every time we must meet someone new because we do not have time to drive. We believe it is easier to call them for their consultations, and we learn quite a lot on our first calls. We have made many calls with the Securus account, and I have everyone in the office using a Securus account. We use their company because it is simpler and more functional than any other, and they allow us to see our clients on each call.

 

#2: Calling With Video

 

We have been calling with video on every Securus account, and I am allowed to see how my clients react to the information that is given them. I want to know their general state of mind, and I want to know that they are ready to move forward with their case.

 

They have been a help to our business as we reach out to clients, and I feel as though they are helping us meet everyone’s needs in the present.

ClassDojo Raises $21 Million In The Second Round Of Venture Funding

In their series B round of venture funding for technology that aims at connecting teachers, students and parents, ClassDojo raised $21 million. General Catalyst and new investors such as Reach Capital, Signal Fire and GSV led the closing round of funding. The co-founders of ClassDojo, Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don said that the capital raised was intended to be used for developing their team and improve the ClassDojo app by including useful content and features. The app aims at enhancing teacher-parent communication throughout the year, while creating a positive culture in classrooms. Through the app, parents are updated on their kid’s day at school.

Teachers communicate with parents instantly. This strategy is convenient for letting parents know their child’s performance in school. Teachers can capture photos or record videos of students’ work and participation in various activities and send them to parents.  They intend to make premium features and create content that parents would require to pay to access instead of generating revenue off users’ data.

Sam and Liam were motivated to start up ClassDojo after realizing that most companies in the education tech business did not have a free and user friendly app that would improve classroom experience. For the new intended features, ClassDojo could also enable parents to make payments from their phones for various requirements like lunches or field trips through a transaction feature. The company has expanded from education tech accelerator through Imagine K12 to being part of Y combinator. This information was originally published on TechCrunch as highlighted in the link below http://techcrunch.com/2016/04/15/classdojo-raises-21-million-for-app-to-make-parent-teacher-meetings-obsolete/

New Acclaimed CEO of Capital Group Announced

In July of 2015 the Board of Directors at Capital Group named Timothy Armour as Chairman of Capital Group. This change of leadership had been planned for several years and was formalized when the previous Chairman, Jim Rothenberg, passed away. In a statement Timothy said, “Tim said, “All of us here at Capital deeply mourn the loss of our friend and colleague, Jim. He was a purposeful leader, who possessed a talent for taking decisive action in the best long-term interests of our clients, investors and associates.”

Timothy obtained his Bachelors degree from Middlebury College in Vermont. Timothy began his career in 1983 in The Associates Program at Capital Group, and then moving on to the position of equity investment analyst. Later on he served as an equity portfolio manager for the company.

Timothy has said, “find active managers who earn their keep.” He believes that an investor doesn’t need to settle for average returns, and should seek out an actively trading manager who can consistently make greater returns than the overall market does. He is a proponent of active management of a portfolio rather than passively following an index which will only make what the overall market does. By researching and investing in profitable companies that are doing better than the overall market an active manager can provide the best gains for his clients.

Janet Yang, a Director of Multi-asset and Alternative Strategies, believes that Timothy Armour was a good choice to lead Capital Group. She believes a good deal of their success is because of Timothy’s ability to peer into the future and uncover the needs and demands of a business, as well as the long term needs of the employees of these businesses.

These market corrections, in his words, remove pockets of excess. In a July 2015 interview he commented that he’s in agreement with the Fed that rates need to rise because it would be healthy to do so over the long term. both the vision they need and, as a long term employee and executive of the company, continuity after the passing of the former Chair.

Water Quality Assurances Given By Squaw Valley

Water quality has always been high on the agenda of the Squaw Valley Ski Resort officials who had only recently completed an upgrade to the four well system that serves the Upper Mountain region of the historic winter sports destination. The upgrades made to the water system have already proven their worth following heavy October rains that caused a buildup of bacteria that was identified and halted before any guests were offered water containing the water with higher than permitted levels of E. Coli and Coliform.

The success of the program devised by Squaw Valley and their partners in the water restoration program at http://squawalpine.com/skiing-riding/weather-conditions-webcams/snow-weather-reports-lake-tahoe has been shown in a report from Placer County Department of Environmental Health’s Wesley Nicks that revealed three of the four affected wells now showed no signs of E. Coli infection and low levels of Coliform. The program to return the wells to normal operations has not yet been completed and Squaw Valley Ski Holdings statement guarantees no water from the affected wells will be used until they are declared safe by Placer County officials.

In the latest statement from Squaw Valley Ski Resort the company reveals the heavier than expected rainfall affected groundwater supplies across Placer County and was quickly identified by the upgraded water system on Wikipedia.org. Squaw Valley acted quickly because of their routine and rigorous water testing schedule that identified the issue with bacteria brought into supplies from rainwater at an stage; the first step for Squaw Valley officials was to halt the water supplies and make contact with Placer County Environmental Health Department to begin the process of returning supplies to their normal quality levels.

The owners of the historic Squaw Valley Ski Resort have taken a rigorous approach to the bacteria issue they seem to be well on the way to solving on snow-forecast.com, and have not opened restaurants in the Upper Mountain area since the problem was identified. Ski slopes in the upper mountain region have now been opened and free bottled water is available for all who are looking to enjoy some sporting action over the winter season.
