A lot of value is placed on positive thoughts. Among the entities that place such value on positive thoughts is QNet.

All that is needed is for someone to leave a positive Facebook comment. The goal is to reach 500 positive comments within two weeks. Upon reaching this goal, QNet will make a donation of HomePure Red to Taarana, which is a school that teaches children that have special needs in learning.

The US Court of Appeals has issued a ruling in favor of Securus Technologies and other prison communications companies. The commissioner of the court Ajit Pai refuted the FCC’s claims against Securus and other companies and publicly stated that good governance is not discretionary. What he means is not the government should not decide the rates, but the market should.
Taking a more in depth look at the ruling we see that the court correctly decided that the rates should be set by the market. The rate should take into consideration the expenses incurred by prisons and inmate communication and technology companies who provide the calling services. Capping the rates of inmate phone calls as was proposed by the FCC, would have lead to disastrous results for the prison calling industry and heavily affected companies like Securus. A cap on the rates of inmate phone calls would effectively destroy the phone calling industry that Securus is part off, by making it unprofitable and unsustainable.
With no phone calling companies servicing prisons such as Securus, prisoners would not have access to any calls at all to connect with the outside world. The case built against Securus and other communication firms was largely build on information from groups outside the criminal justice, correction and prison sector says Richard Smith who is the CEO of Securus. He applauded the courts decision and says that the court saw through the opposition who was trying to unfairly target and terrorize the prison communications industry in a crusade.
Securus Technologies has been battling rate caps for over sixteen years now. Richard Smith says that the solution to rising costs or expenses is to get together industry leaders and stakeholders such as prisons, inmates and family members of inmates. The solution is not more regulation which can kill the industry.
Based out of Dallas, Texas Securus Technologies provides criminal justice technology and communication devices, programs and solutions to thousands of law enforcement institutions around the country. The company services over a million inmates in North America, providing them with calling and video communication access to their family and friends. It also services firemen and paramedics with geolocation technologies and devices to make locating emergency callers faster.
Securus recently launched a mobile application for its updated video visitation service to inmates. This app lets friends and family members communicate with incarcerated inmates from the comfort of their smartphone. It eliminates the need to sit down on a computer and is available for download for free.
