In the years to come, the foundation plans to study and research the situation of children in each country. This study is set to begin in 2016. After that, the foundation will release documentaries to highlight the observations made. By 2018, the organization hopes to have partnered at least 10 major worldwide organizations, who will embrace its objectives as their own. By 2020, they aim at convincing countries to commit to the goals of the organization. The foundation will then monitor the progress of each country by 2022.

Ken of Goettl Air Conditioning finds a way to give back07.11.16

Having a career in the HVAC can be financially rewarding but very expensive to start. In addition to paying and taking up college courses for about two years, individuals that graduate from the program will need to have tools in order to begin work as a HVAC technician. These tools come with high price tags and can easily drain the technician’s pocket. To assist with the cost some local HVAC companies allow technicians to use their tools but at a cost. These companies deduct funds from the technicians pay check at the end of each pay period. Thanks to Ken Goodrich and Goettl Air Conditioning, an Army Veteran will be able to start a career as a HVAC technician with the right tools and no expense to him.

Approximately 6 years after leaving Southern Nevada, Goettl Air Conditioning was sold to Ken Goodrich. Goodrich saw the need to expand, so in 2016 the company opened a branch office in Las Vegas.

Securus Technologies To Educate Consumers on the Illegal Practices of Major Telecommunication Cntractor07.06.16

Richard A. Rick, the CEO of one of the leading telecommunication providers, Securus Technologies has vowed to expose nefarious practices of GTL, Global Tel Link. In a series of press release that would extend to six months, Securus Technologies [A+ rated by the BBB] aims to publish important papers that will highlight the obnoxious practices of GTL, and how GTL robes prisoners and their families. According to the first press release published on the website of PRNewswire, the Louisiana Public Service Commission highlighted gross anomalies carried by Global Tel Link, 18 years earlier. In its report, Louisiana Public Service Commission noted that GTL implanted illegal software in the communication devices across many prisons across Louisiana allowing GTL to add 15 or 36 seconds to the call rates of calls made using the respective prison communication facility.

The 17-page Order No. U-20784-B, also stated that call rates of GTL were also higher than the minimum call charges set by the Public Service Commission. As such, higher rates were illegal and in breach of the contract signed by the company with state prisons. In fact, the company went beyond any ethical standard by adding various amounts of charges after the calls were rated. Also, various add-on programs were developed to extract large sums of cash from the pockets of prisoners and their families. As if it was not enough, the report also highlighted several instances where GTL deliberately engaged in “Double-billing” charging customer twice for a call.

Overall, the report by Louisiana Public Service Commission claimed that such practices caused approximately 1,243,000 to tax payers by overcharging customers. Unfortunately, such reports by the federal authorities are not published in major media making it difficult for the public to get awareness. Therefore, the CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard A. Rick has vowed to educate consumers on the issue.
