Dick DeVos Continues to be a Major Asset to Grand Rapids Michigan

The DeVos family has been a significant factor in the improvement and positive changes seen in Grand Rapids, Michigan today. The DeVos family has been a mainstay in the betterment of the city starting with Dick DeVos’s parents who are the founders of Amway. Today multiple charities, schools, hospitals, civic and cultural events and centers, to name a few, have benefitted from the efforts by Dick DeVos and family.

 

One of the noted turning points in the connection between Grand Rapids and Dick DeVos is the creation of the DeVos Place Convention Center, DeVos Performance Hall, Grand Rapids City Market, the Van Andel Arena and the construction of Michigan State University Medical School. The drive to build the major civic and education centers came from Dick DeVos’s experience with downtown Detroit’s demise to the athletic centers after the Detroit Pistons and Lions left the city. DeVos considered the Pontiac Silverdome and Palace of Auburn Hills lessons well learned and not worth repeating for the city of Grand Rapids.

 

Dick and Betsy DeVos continue to be philanthropic, as heirs to a family fortune, with the creation of the Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation. The family reports giving $138.7 million to multiple organization and charities between 1998 to 2015. The family continued its charitable giving in 2006, giving $12.5 million to the construction of a $103 million children’s hospital named after the late Helen DeVos, Dick DeVos’s mother.

Education advocacy and reform have been the top priority for both Dick and Betsy DeVos. The desire for children from low-income families to have the same educational opportunities are what drive the DeVos’s continued work for educational reform. In 2000 an effort to create tax-funded vouchers was sponsored by Dick DeVos, to allow vouchers for students to attend private schools. The Michigan voters rejected the plan, but the DeVos’s continued to advocate for the reform in other states. The number of states and districts that are making vouchers for public schools available is continuing to increase due to the persistence of Dick and Betsy DeVos.

 

Dick DeVos and his wife Betsy, who is now the U.S. Secretary of Education, continue to be leaders in charitable giving and on improving education. Dick DeVos has founded an aviation charter high school at Grand Rapids International Airport. Betsy DeVos continues to be an advocate for school choice programs and the noted continued growth of these programs in the U.S.

Securus Technologies Helping Maintain Order in Packed Jails

When a jail is overcrowded to the point that the inmates have to resort to violence to get their message across, this puts each person behind the prison walls in danger. When I got started working in our prison as a corrections officer, the jails were not yet full to capacity so we were able to a degree to keep things orderly. Now, not only are we severely outnumbered, the inmates have resorted to violent outbursts in an effort to try and get law enforcement to address their concerns.

 

Although we have many pieces of technology that are utilized to maintain order, one system in particular has changed the way that we can deal with violent incidents throughout this facility. Securus Technologies created a call monitoring system that has given corrections officers the unique ability to be able to not only predict what the inmates are going to do, but to intercept that activity if it is going to put anyone in the jail in harm’s way. Securus Technologies has this same inmate call system in 2,260 jails, and officers are seeing those incidents of violence significantly drop.

 

Securus Technologies CEO Richard Smith is making it very clear that he and all of his thousand employees of the company want to achieve their objective of making our world safe. The system has only been in operation in our facility for a month, and in that time we have seen things improve. When inmates get their time on the jail phone and ask family to sneak them prescription drugs during visiting day, we intercept. When inmates are talking about rival gang attacks, we can intercept. Even if an inmate is talking about selling drugs on the command of his gang leaders, we are able to swoop in and take the necessary action.

The Oxford Club: Here to Invest and Serve

Cryptocurrency is considered to be the “new hit” in the investing world. It’s like everywhere you go on the internet you can’t stop hearing people talk about “Bitcoin” and other cryptocurrencies. Cryptocurrency is considered to be a unique form of digital currency that is issued by companies. With cryptocurrencies, a consumer can make purchases online with vendors and e-commerce stores who accept the currency. Right now, the market is very hot and everybody is trying to get a piece of the Bitcoin boom. There are some experts who are expecting record profits by 2019, but there are those who are very skeptical. The problem with cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, is the fact that these currencies are not backed by anything that includes a government or a bank. Some believe that this is why, one day in the future, the governments around the world will start regulating it. You can make transactions using the currencies but there are not many people who accept cryptocurrencies as payment. Experts say that if you are going to invest in Bitcoin, only invest small since cryptocurrencies, like Bitcoin, are very speculative.
