Hussain Sajwani Finishes What He Begins January 16, 2018

Hussain Sajwani was just a schoolboy, working for his father in the family store in Dubai when he became disgruntled by the long hours his father made him work. He told his father that he was sure that he would never be self-employed because the long hours were just impossible. He stated that he would rather go to college and get a degree so he could be a professional with regular hours.

 

Hussain did discover a very low price for a bulk order of candy which he was able to purchase with saved funds, and he then proceeded to make a handsome sum, selling the candy to classmates. It may have been at that time the entrepreneurial bug bit him, even though he did attend the University of Washington in the US and earned degrees in engineering and economics.

 

He then returned to his home country of Dubai and landed a job as an engineer in a Dubai gas company. That position didn’t last too long, and it came to an abrupt halt when Hussain saw an opportunity and seized it. He formed a catering company which sold food to the US Army during the Gulf War in Kuwait and Iraq. The venture was very successful and led to Hussain gaining valuable experience in running a large company.

 

In the year 2002, Hussain established DAMAC Properties, a real estate development and management company. The UAE had just announced that the restrictions on foreigners immigrating to the country had been lifted, and Sajwani discerned correctly that there would be a great demand for land and living accommodations.

 

As things worked out, DAMAC would become a great boon to not only the Hussain Sajwani family but to the country as well. People took interest in DAMAC and the luxury apartments and villa right away and sales started to set records immediately. Sajwani’s first project sold out before the construction had even begun.

 

The DAMAC owner had a flair for marketing and advertising, as one of his slogans was, “A New Bently For Every Apartment.” Since the inception of DAMAC, over 19,000 apartments have been sold, and there are another 44,000 in various stages of construction.

Securus Technologies Develops A Powerful Weapon That Deters Illegal Prison Cellphone Communications January 10, 2018

Life in the U.S. correction system is nothing like life outside of the razor-sharp fences that keep prisoners isolated from the rest of society. Prison live a mundane life filled with zoo-like interactions that create an incarcerated social bond that few people understand. The perks prisoners receive in prison are nothing to write home about. In fact, prison perks are basic needs that remind prisoners that decent behavior is one of the most important characteristics of a normal life. But some prisoners never learn the lessons that prison officials put in play on a daily basis. The hardened criminals, and the gang members, still like to break the rules. They like to find ways to complicate the lives of prison officials on a daily basis, and one way prisoners do that is by using contraband cellphones.

 

 

Smuggling a cellphone into a prison isn’t uncommon. Drugs and cellphones are the two biggest weapons prisoners have behind bars. A cellphone in the hands of a gang member is a lethal weapon. Gang member communication with their homeboys on the outside and the result of those interactions can mean more death and destruction on the streets of American cities. No matter how hard prison officials try to stop cellphone smuggling it continues at an alarming rate. Outside companies that work with correction facilities try to help stop contraband, but those companies have little success. But Securus Technologies, the prison communication provider for correction facilities across the country, has finally developed a solution to illegal cellphone use in prisons.

 

 

Securus Technologies has a system that can shut down all illegal prison calls. Securus calls the system “the Wireless Containment System.” When prisons use the Securus Wireless Containment System, 100 percent of the illegal cellphone calls never connect as long as the system is on. The feedback that is coming from prison officials around the country is all positive. Inmates who like to threaten public officials or send messages to gang members on the outside never happen. One prison official said the Securus Wireless Containment System is playing an important role in protecting the public. Another prison official thinks Securus is helping sheriff departments stop the flow of drugs and illegal cash when those departments have the system up and running.

 

 

The Securus Wireless Containment System is a valuable asset in the recovery of stolen property, according to law enforcement departments that use the system or are testing the system for future use. Securus Technologies has a reputation for helping correction facilities function effectively when it comes to legal telephone communication, video calls, and video visits. But this new cellphone containment system is cutting edge technology that will bring more order to prisoners who continue to defy prison system rules.
