The visions of business leaders never stop, and they always want to innovate and make sure that the best products from their head get translated into reality. I believe one of the most impressive but stirring brands or companies today is Securus Technologies because it is trying to solve a social safety issue with technology knowing very well that there’s a lot of loopholes, vulnerabilities, and challenges in the technology industry itself. However, Securus Technologies wants to learn, wants to innovate and wants to keep moving despite such challenges. One of the recent difficulties today that Securus Technologies experienced is about how it offered solutions to the public safety problems in the country’s correctional facilities. One example of this case is the story of Robert Johnson.
Robert Johnson’s Tragedy
Robert Johnson works for Lee Correctional Institutional as an officer, and the tragedy in his workplace started when he confiscated a contraband item inside the prison, and it turned out that it contained about $50,000 worth of goods. The confiscation must have caused a lot of trouble inside the facility since it was such a significant amount of money. Robert had been around in the facility for about 15 years already, and that incident was probably not that new to him. However, it was just not his luck that that issue escalated to something much more life-threatening.
About two weeks later after the confiscation, it was revealed that there was a call to shoot order from the prison against Robert Johnson to justify the seizure, and he was shot in his house. He tried to protect his family by distracting them away and thereby attracting the shots to his chest. He’s okay now, after undergoing a series of stitches and follow-up check-ups for over quite some years from doctors. He’s also been dealing with the consequences of the tragedy way more than money can compensate. However, justice was done because the shooter was caught and now Robert Johnson already works for Securus Technologies, implementing the Wireless Containment Solutions of Securus to help prevent the accident he suffered from happening to others.
Wireless Containment Solutions
It should be noted here that, according to Business Wire, the primary benefit of Wireless Containment Solutions is that it provides a system where unwanted and illegal calls that come from the inside of the prison and the outside could be hung up. They could no longer get through the prison system, thereby preventing shoot to call orders and other sensitive information from getting out of the prison.
I think this additional feature from Securus is such an outstanding protection for the safety of both inmates and their officers. That said, kudos to Securus. Without such dedication from them, we’d still be dealing with preventable incidents such as Robert Johnson’s story.

Paul Mampilly is the author of three newsletters known as “Profits Unlimited,” “Extreme Fortunes” and “True Momentum” which are published under Banyan Hill, a journalistic financial website that’s a subsidiary of Agora Financial. One of his recent articles at that website discusses Bitcoin and why it’s the investment you don’t want to make right now. Mampilly’s advice is trusted because he’s learned the stock market very well over the years and has been an early investor in stocks that took off surprisingly. He mentions in his article that he’s a believer in cryptocurrency, but Bitcoin’s surge in 2017 could mean bad news in 2018.
What Paul Mampilly explains is that there are good stock prices that experience some highs followed by some lows, but many of which will experience more growth in the long-term. But some stocks become too popular too quickly like Bitcoin that they grow beyond what should be a normal high price target to a price that’s driven too high by popularity. This creates a bubble and leads to similar situations to what happened in the 2000 dot-com crash, and the housing bubble that led to the recession of 2008. Bitcoin has already seen its value start to tumble downward, and while Mampilly expects it will see some rallies in 2018, it’s going to once again continue downward. Paul Mampilly Has Struck Gold Again
Paul Mampilly was born to a blue collar family in India, and his father worked to send him to private school and eventually college at Montclair State University. After graduating from there, he started doing investing research at Deutsche Bank. He earned several promotions and in a couple years transferred to ING as a portfolio advisor. He later managed multi-million dollar accounts for affluent clients at Banker’s Trust, and then made a big leap to hedge fund manager for billion-dollar corporations and other investement banks at Kinetics International Fund. This firm brought in 26% returns to client funds under Mampilly’s leadership and was cited as the new top Wall Street firm in Barron’s. While managing funds at Kinetics International, Mampilly won the investment competition at the Templeton Foundation for investing $50 million during the 2008 recession, and making a 76% gain without buying any high-risk stocks or shorting others. Greatest Medical Breakthrough in History and Mampilly’s “#1 Stock for 2018”
Paul Mampilly had a successful career, but he was growing unhappy with with his daily life because some of his work shifts lasted as long as 16 hours per day. He quietly left the corporate office at age 42 and moved his family to a more rural location in North Carolina in 2012. He still loved investing and decided it was time to help regular investors come to profit by it, so he joined Banyan Hill and within a month he picked up 60,000 subscribers. He has many followers on his YouTube channel as well. His facebook page
