Clay Siegall recently posted on his official blog about making choices as explained by several philosophers. Ruth Chang, a professor of philosophy at Rutgers University, noted that understanding hard choices unveil personal strength that is within every individual. Hard choices can be as easy as choosing what to have for breakfast. She advises that if faced with a hard choice, one shouldn’t think that he or she is stupid. She also noted that fear of the outcome often leads people to take the safest choices. She advises people not to only see choices as better, worse, or equal. Instead, they should take them at par, consider what matters, commit to one, and create reasons as to why they have opted for one choice and not the other.
Sheena Iyengar noted that what makes people unable to make decisions easily is when they have many options. They start thinking of the methods for analyzing the options. Another hurdle is when one is well aware of the consequences. She noted that culture also influences decision making. A culture that values togetherness will influence people to make a choice based on the social responsibility while one that values independence will influence people to make a decision based on what they like.

His main and most difficult task is in trying to explain how democracy works, and how, without a constitution that insures basic human rights, a democracy can be a big deterrent to individual freedom. A democracy, in effect, is a dictatorship by the majority, so a constitution must be in effect in order to protect the minority from an oppressive majority. Check here.

Jason Hope, one of Arizona’s most successful tech entrepreneurs, has many notches in his belt. From a young age, the innovator was always fascinated by all things scientific. He regularly read magazines such as “Popular Science”, “Wired” and even medical journals like “The Lancet”. This intent focus on the tech world would serve him well.
After Jason Hope graduated from Arizona State University with a degree in finance, Hope founded Jawa, a premium mobile content provider. Jawa enabled its customers to download their favorite songs and ringtones to their mobile devices from anywhere in the United States. This all sounds fairly pedestrian today. But it’s worth noting that Mr. Hope was doing this in the late 90s, long before most people even carried cell phones. In fact, Mr. Hope created one of the first and largest mobile content providers in the country, years before even Steve Jobs got involved in the mobile content market.

Mr. Hope went on to create a number of software companies, mobile app developers, SEO firms and even a charitable foundation. Being right about tech has been how he has made his living. So it’s always worth paying attention when he has something to say about an up-and-coming technology.
Recently, Mr. Hope has taken to the internet, guest blogging and writing articles about what he thinks the tech world is going to look like over the next five to ten years. Currently, he is getting the word out about the immense transformative power that the Internet of Things is going to have on people’s everyday lives.
Hope sees this new perfusion of information systems into every facet of life as potentially being even bigger than the industrial revolution. He believes that the total elimination of menial tasks is just around the corner and that the Utopian freedom from labor promised in the 19th and 20th centuries by advancing technology is now within reach.
For many decades, the lip balm industry had seen little change. Chapstick, with their famous cylinder tube, ruled the aisles. Even though this product was popular, many consumers would say that this product was boring. Roughly ten years ago, planning began to change all of this.
EOS, Evolution of Smooth, is the company that brought us the orb-shaped lip balm. These have taken the world by storm and are a favorite among many celebrities. EOS has been in business for seven years, and they have risen to second place in the industry. The road to the top was not easy and, a lot of work was done to get there.
Before starting on any production, research was done. EOS lip balm researched their customer base and wanted to know more about the industry. They found that mostly women bought lip balm and, that they were not thrilled with the current choices. This was about to change.
After hearing what the customers wanted, a clay artist was brought in to help shape the new product. The orb was the chosen product because it was easy to find at the bottom of a purse and, it fit nicely in the palm of a hand.
The ingredients used in the orbs lip balm are all organic and natural. The trend for many personal products are to use organic and all-natural products, and EOS followed suit. EOS offers many choices for flavors of their lip balms as well.
Once EOS was able to get certain stores such as Well and Walmart to agree to put their orbs on the shelves, online stores Amazon and eBay(http://www.ebay.com/bhp/eos-lip-balm) soon followed, it was not long before people started to notice. Magazines and celebrities raved over these products and the public followed suit. EOS has grown to sell over 1 million units a week and is not showing signs of stopping.
If you a frequent reader of the correctional departments news, you will not miss articles on Securus Technologies.

Securus seems to have outdone itself when it comes to delivering excellence. This BBB accredited technology provider has always been ahead of its industry’s game, in terms of technology and delivering unmatched value in their services. Securus recently challenged GTL to be in competition where a neutral judge would decide who among the two companies was the best. According to the press release posted on PR Newswire, Securus boss challenged GTL to join the competition if they really think that their services can be matched to Securus.
Rick commented that they would never be on the same lane. Having invested over $700 in their customer service during the last four years, GTL wouldn’t even fathom the idea of being in a judged competition with them. Securus beats GTL 10-nil, not only in customer service but also in the number od services held under their portfolio. And, to give their clients the best experience, they train their own staff, rather than subcontracting which is what GTL does.
