Forex According to the Great Greg Secker

Posted on by

With wage growth at a stand still, inflation continuing to rise, and interest rates nearing all-time lows, expert Greg Secker says now is the opportune time for investors to consider adding forex (or the foreign exchange market) to their investment portfolios.

 

Secker recommends forex for even complete beginners to the trading market— one of forex’s top appeals is that it doesn’t require large investments. Forex is a great starting place for anyone that doesn’t have the time to interpret charts or learn complex trading. Because foreign exchange is a global marketplace, it is always accessible, and follows global trends. The best route of action is to start in the UK forex market to avoid inflation rates decreasing the US dollar’s value. This allows you to avoid being taxed on your new income as well!

 

The most important thing Secker says to keep in mind is that forex is only unsafe if you move forward with an unskilled strategy. Employ the numerous software programs that were engineered to help you along the way. Lastly, always pay attention to your forex indicator— which will mean something different to each individual. A common forex indicator is the Exponential Moving Average, which enables forex traders to compare two EMAs to conclude if pricing is moving up or down. With tips from the master entrepreneur Greg Secker himself, anyone can learn to diversify their finances into forex in a breeze.

 

But just who is the mastermind behind this sudden feasibility? Greg Secker is an entrepreneur, whose successes have also led him to dabble in philanthropy and international speaking. Owner of software Learn to Trade and Capital Index, he has changed the financial lives of millions. The Greg Seckler Foundation is his passion project, devoted to improving the lives of people in communities around the world.

 

Greg made himself a millionaire by his midtwenties– he now devotes his life towards helping others achieve the same greatness. By equipping the world with the tools they need, he is helping people everywhere learn to achieve greatness through financial freedom and success.

Teachers

The teachers are able to identify exactly what the child needs and where the child is at in their journey of learning. They are precisely trained to handle the special level of education.

Using Securus Technologies to Combat the War on Drugs

Posted on by

Despite being inside a prison working as a corrections officer, we have our own battle against drugs that many might not even think could be so bad. We have several inmates who talk openly about how they are able to get drugs inside their cells easier than when they were running on the streets. That is something we as officers are not proud of, and we take immediate measures to try and eliminate.

 

The biggest weak spot in the jail is where we have the inmates and visitors come together. Despite several resources at our disposal, these inmates can be quite crafty when they want something from the outside. We have to have our heads in a million places to ensure nothing is being transferred, but many times it can be impossible when you are outnumbered by inmates 4:1 in most cases.

 

Securus Technologies placed the call monitoring system in our prison, and we utilize the LBS software to try and identify when inmates are doing something they should not. Eben knowing that we are listening they still slip up from time to time and give us key pieces of information that we can use to try and fight this war on drugs on several fronts.

 

Once we became familiar with the alert system, it began to isolate calls from inmates concerning drugs. We heard one inmate telling his mother how to pass the prescription drugs to him when they said goodbye in the jail. Another inmate talked quite openly about how he can buy pills from a fellow inmate and take them at night when the jail goes dark. We ever heard inmates telling their family how they are selling drugs to raise up their commissary balance. Each time the alert goes off, we strike fast to stop this war from raging on.

Joe Arpaio In Several Cases

Posted on by

There are several cases running against the Maricopa County Sheriff, Joe Arpaio. One of these is the Melendres v. Arpaio case. Another is the civil rights lawsuit that is being overseen by Judge Roslyn O. Silver. This is the US v. Maricopa County case. Earlier this case was estimated to last 15 days. Read more: Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

All this started after Joe Arpaio arrested Michael Jim from their homes in the middle of the night, and jailed them. This was because these two journalists had written about the racial discriminations and other malpractices in the county jails under his supervision. This arrest marked the end of the career for these two journalists. Larkin and Lacey decided to sue the state, the sheriff as well as the public prosecutor. The money they got as the settlement was used to set up the Frontera Fund.

There was another lawsuit filed by the Department of Justice in May 2012. This is just like the other lawsuits which address issues regarding the discriminatory practices by the office of the Sheriff against Latinos. This is just like the Melendres trial. Here MCSO was accused to be guilty of racial profiling practices. This was in 2013. A long list of remedies was ordered to be implemented here.

This lawsuit by the Department of Justice is much wider than Melendres. It is covering the abuse of power by Joe Arpaio. It also includes any reprisals against his critics, along with the discrimination against Hispanics that continues in County jails.

Also, the Department of Justice has claimed that MCSO violated the Equal Protection Clause of Amendment 14. The Title VI of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 prohibits any kind of discrimination on the basis of certain aspects like race, color, or national origin, besides programs as well as those activities which receive federal funds.

This way the aid of millions of dollars to Maricopa County as well as MCSO can be affected this way.

Another complaint by the DOJ alleges violating the ban of the Fourth Amendment against search as well as the seizure of property. This was violating First Amendment rights by the critics as well as opponents of Arpaio. The DOJ also argued that MCSO misdemeanors will be under the Violent Crime Control and Law Enforcement Act of 1994. Learn more about Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey:  http://www.laceyandlarkinfronterafund.org/about-lacey-larkin-frontera-fund/jim-larkin/

This states that no government authority or its agent or any person acting on its behalf can exercise any patterns of conduct that will deprive a person of rights, or privileges, or any kind of immunities that have been secured by the Constitution of the U.S.

This complaint by the DOJ detailed all the anti-constitutional activities of MCSO. This was in terms of violating the civil rights of Latinos, besides their Spanish-speaking rights, as well as the illegal arrests of the Phoenix New Times Founders Michael and Jim.

Next was the Border Fund in 200 7, besides arresting the Arpaio critics who had clapped during a meeting of the Maricopa County Board of Supervisors, besides arresting the civil rights activist known as Salvador Reza. Also detailed were the false accusations that were brought by the MCSO which was against the former high court judge, Gary Donahoe.

New U.S. Money Reserve eBook Delivers Economic Perspective to Private Investors

Posted on by

In response to growing concern among Americans about the impacts of recent alarming global events, U.S. Mint Reserve has released their new eBook, “The 2017 War of Nerves: Global Risk and Your Money.”

The instability throughout the world has caused many Americans to look for answers about how to protect their wealth and earnings.

Daily reports by the media about cyber-attacks threatening large institutions and private individuals is a constant growing concern. Technology and Financial giants such as Google and JP Morgan have not been spared from the devastating impact of the vulnerability that goes with our technology-dependent society. Even more alarming, defense contractor Lockheed Martin and the U.S. Military have been the recent targets of overseas hackers.

The international struggle for world dominance has created a new era of governmental posturing and threats worldwide. Weekly reports of weapons testing by North Korea, Iran’s nuclear treaty-breaking, the taunting of U.S. civilian and military subjects by Russian aircraft and the Chinese creation of bases in international waters that can easily be re-purposed for hostile use have raised fears throughout North America, Europe and the rest of the world.
