  • Cover your phone’s flashlight with a clear piece of tape. Color it using a blue marker.
  • Cover that piece of tape with another and color that portion in with a purple marker.

After doing this, simply turn your flashlight on and prepare to be amazed at how the colors glow.

 

  1. Make Your Own Speaker and Phone Stand

 

The strain playing on your phone puts on your neck is fairly bothersome, so Wengie suggests making your own stand that doubles as a speaker. Simply take two solo cups and a toilet paper roll. Cut small holes into the cups that will easily hold the ends of the roll, and place it inside. From there, cut a slit into the exposed portion of the roll that your phone will fit in.

Reaction of Securus to the activities being carried out by Global Tel Link

Securus Technology is currently offering a broad range of services including civil and criminal justice technology solutions. They are now releasing information about how inmate communication providers are breaking the law put in place by the government to protect the rights of prisoners. The prisoners’ rights group has been complaining about the quality of service being offered by Global Tel Link. Apart from the quality of utility being rendered by the entity has also been overpricing the service they provide.

Securus has been investigating the body, and when doing so, they realized a number of illegal things that were being done by GTL.

GTL has programmed its system to add 15 or 36 seconds to every call being made with their firm. In this case, inmates have been paying extra cash for the minutes added to their calls. By so doing the entity has been profiting from the system put in place.

The firm has also been double charging a single call more than once making the recipients pay more than once. This is totally against the law since no one has the right to double charge any commodity or utility being offered to the client.

Securus will be providing articles and press realizes that showcase the unlawful activities being carried out by the GTL for the next six months. The main aim of doing this is simply to create awareness about what is taking place in our society. Apart from that, it is also a way of shaming the company so that it can abide by the law to avoid inconveniences of any nature to their clients.

After billing a call the firm has been adding additional charges to the correct billing. There is no single pattern followed by the company while doing this. The company has been adding different amounts of cash to the initial billing. All this is being carried out intentionally.

Europe and Ukraine Sustenance

According to George Soros, the European parliamentary elections and the presidential elections held in Ukraine demonstrated a loud disparity of outcomes. The results of the Europe’s electorates indicated their displeasure in the manner in which the European Union was working. At the same time, the Ukraine populace confirmed their desire to be part of the European Union. Soros goes ahead and urges the EU leaders and citizens to make good use of this opportunity and understand the idea of helping Ukraine, which will be beneficial to Europe.

George Soros states that initially, the EU was intended to establish a close relationship among independent nations enthusiastic to gradually share their independence in order to attain common positive objectives. This was a brave test especially in international authority as well as the rule of law, intended to replace patriotism and use of force.

According to Soros, this turned out to be something different. The euro crisis, for instance, has turned the union fundamentally to a relationship of creditors and debtors. This situation has made the creditor nations to execute conditions to debtor nations, an aspect that has enhanced dominion over different nations. As a result of the low participation in the European parliamentary elections, it is evident that many citizens are not comfortable with the way things stand.

As the situation in international governance in Europe continues to get out of hand, Soros asserts that Russia is emerging as a paramount competitor to the European Union, which has international geopolitical determinations as well as prepared to apply force. President Putin is keen on making use of ethnic national philosophy and the backing from the Orthodox church to augment his administration.

Sustaining Ukraine’s Breakthrough

George Soros claims that according to the speech by President Putin on the Russian Radio Program “Direct Line” in Aril, 2014, he commended the inherent merits of the Russian population. Moreover, Soros claims that the seizure of Crimea has made Putin be famous in his nation. His efforts to wane the American domination globally partly by seeking an alliance with China has received favorable support from the rest of the world.

According to George Soros, Europe and America need to offer large support financially to Ukraine in order to counter the Russian belligerence. As things are at the moment, Russia has an impermanent premeditated advantage over Ukraine. This is because it is ready to go into war to an extend of using nuclear power although Ukraine associates are resolute in averting a one on one conflict with Russia. This has made Putin enjoy the options of choosing between a hybrid war or a hybrid peace enthusiastically and has made good use of this gain.

George Soros claims that Ukraine cannot overcome the Russian military since Putin is in a good position to marshal an enhanced military power than Ukraine and all its associates in the battlefield. Soros however, asserts that the only way for Europe and the US can outdo Russia’s aggression in Ukraine is through financial power. Through stabilizing Ukraine, the nation will gain a powerful economic foundation and become an investment target. This will improve the lives of people and appeal to the Russian population, who will claim a similar reform. This will give Putin much issues to tackle internally and have little time and effort to concentrate on Ukraine, an aspect that will be beneficial to the western nations.

Soros Revamping Support For Democratic Party

George Soros has officially thrown his hat back into the political arena. Discouraged after his first attempt to influence an election, the Hungarian born Soros has given an eight million dollar donation to the organization that is aiding with the election of Hillary Clinton.

Mr. Soros is not the only one either. Some affluential Hollywood moguls have also donated around 6 million dollars to help Hillary take the Oval Office. Mr. Soros has also donated 3 million earlier in the year towards this Democratic effort. Soros has always been a big supporter of the Democratic Party and these donations are far and above what he has offered in recent years.

Soros was an immigrant to England. He was forced out of his beloved Hungary when Nazis took occupation of the country. Fleeing to England and getting an education was a logical step for him. He used this education to move to New York City, commence a career in finance and then make his fortune.

The last big effort that George Soros has offered to the Democratic Party was in the attempt to help oust George W Bush from office. This attempt did not prove fruitful and Soros fell back into obscurity once again. He was solicited by super PACs for help to reelect President Obama. Offering minimal support for this effort, he also expresses regret for not supporting Clinton at that time.

George Soros has stated his appreciation for Clinton keeping the lines of communication open with him and speaking on affairs of state. His new support level for the Democratic Party shows his steadfast support of Clinton and her particular subset of political beliefs.

The Democratic Party has recently complained about the sheer amount of cash that has been used for recent elections. What is amazing about these complaints is that the top runners in the 2016 Democratic bid for the White House is more than what some countries have for their GDP annually. Clinton alone has raised over $112 million for her campaign.

The second runner up for the candidacy, Bernie Sanders has also raised an amazing amount of money for his bid. His grand total to date rounds in at about $93 million. The Republicans are not without guilt in these efforts either. Marco Rubio was able to raise $20 million in donations and Ted Cruz came in at about $14 million in donations.

The exception to the rule is Donald Trump. He is self funding the bulk of his campaign and he has made it clear he will spend about $2 million a week to get the nomination and office. This is in addition to funds of $2 million in donations and the initial $12 he donated to his own campaign to get it started.
