Newark Youth Better Prepared For College By Kevin Seawright

His plan is to promote the work ethic and basic life skills necessary for youth in Newark, NJ to successfully become college graduates; increasing the local percentage of the college educated. Kevin Seawright is the CFO for the Newark Community Economic Development Corporation (NCEDC). He knows the importance of helping young people get a hand up. This is not the first time he has worked in his community to bring needed changes through promotion of the youth. He is aiming to get 3,500 area high school students employed with summer jobs. Along with the new experience of entering the workplace, the students will also be trained in basic personal finance management. Each student hired will be given bank savings and checking accounts, then they will be taught how to balance their accounts and manage the money they earn.

Over 350 students have applied to the program, which Seawright has worked to make a very streamlined process online, as opposed to the slower paperwork method of past years. What used to take approximately six weeks is now reduced to about a 30 minute process. He says the entire team at CEDC is excited to work together to help set the future for local young people. Thanks to this program, many deserving students in Newark will have an opportunity to not only attend college, but also become incredibly successful with a full foundation of support.

This 6-week summer job program gives each student the start to their professional resume, encourages saving money, and supplies much needed income to prepare to enter college. This year, not only has Seawright improved the application process, he has also increased the number of summer job openings. Students in the program will also receive valuable training lectures that will better prepare them for the college experience. Kevin Seawright has explained to LocalTalkNews that this program has several goals, all surrounding supporting area youth becoming successful college graduates.

Besides NCEDC’s CFO, Kevin Seawright is also the Executive Vice President of the organization whose mission is finding ways to increase business and civility in a community that has faced many challenges. Before this important role, he was the CFO and Facilities Officer for the Departments of Recreation and Parks in Maryland. His commitment to educating his community in effective financial management as well as forward-thinking planning is evidenced by this program. In the past, he has had projects with many millions of dollars budgeted and has been effective in managing them.

What Do You Know About Wen?

A few years ago, one of my friends mentioned to me this great product called WEN. Wen is known on as an all-in-one shampoo, conditioner and styling treatment. When you use Wen, you will notice your hair get much fuller and thicker. After all, isn’t that what we all want?

One of the main reasons why Wen is so sought out is because it was developed by Chaz Dean. For those who don’t know, Dean is a respected professional in the hair care industry. He knows exactly what it takes to get hair that everyone can be envious of.

As stated on the instructions, Wen is mainly recommended for those individuals with fine hair. However, this doesn’t mean that the product strictly applies to them. People with thick hair can use it too. However, those with thin hair will notice the biggest difference before and after.

I can honestly say that using WEN has made a huge impact on my life. In the past, I used to be so ashamed of my thin hair. I felt like everyone around me was staring at my locks. Now, I don’t have that problem anymore. Instead of having to hide my hair behind baseball caps, I can boldly show it off.

If you are sick and tired of the way your hair looks, you are not alone. You can join the rest of us and purchase a bottle of Wen by Chaz Dean. I promise that you will see real results with this product. Remember, you shouldn’t have to struggle daily with your appearance. Instead, you should always feel confident about the way you look. Wen works to grant you the hair you wish you were born with. Now is the time to take a chance and get what you deserve. Try it now.


Ross Abelow Has A Campaign To Help NYC Strays

In most major cities, there are numerous stray animals living outdoors. New York City is certainly no exception. Strays in New York City have a very rough life to say the least. In the wintertime, temperatures can dive far below freezing. This can create deadly conditions for stray animals. Sadly, the shelters in the area are unable to accommodate them all. This is due to lack of financial and material resources. Luckily, something is being done to give shelters in New York City more resources to work with. One of New York City’s well known lawyers, Ross Abelow has worked to raise money for New York City animal shelters.

Ross Abelow practices law along in conjunction with another lawyer by the name of Cassandro, in the New York City area. His office is actually located on Long Island, but it is quite close to New York City. This means that many of his clients come from New York City itself. He specializes in several different types of law. This law firm specializes in law related to business, families, and the entertainment industry. His law firm is well known in the city for their skill. They have successfully won many cases in the city.

To raise money, he has used a well known fundraising website, called Go Fund Me. Go Fund Me allows people to donate money to a cause. People can set a goal for the amount of money that they intend to raise. Ross Abelow intends to collect five thousand dollars to donate to animal shelters. Ross Abelow got the page up and running during January, when the weather had turned exceptionally cold. The page is still up and running.

Animal shelters are going to be able to put this money to good use. For instance, it can be used to pay for animal’s food, beds, and blankets. Additionally, the funds can go to much needed medical care for stray animals. Many stray animals develop health problems from living outdoors. The money that Ross Abelow is planning to donate could be used to help treat any medical concerns that the strays have. It also can be used to vaccinate stray animals. Many stray animals do not have vaccinations or are not up to date on them. This puts the animals and the public in danger. When animals are up to date on their vaccinations, they are more likely to find homes.

With the rise in interest for organic and whole foods for humans, the demand for high quality pet food has started to rise as well. One brand, Freshpet, focuses on using such high quality food and ingredients that in a recent visit to the factory, the CEO of the company didn’t hesitate to sample some of the product. The days of food that is only fit for the dogs, seems to have become a thing of the past.

FreedomPop Expanding Services

FreedomPop has been expanding its services for the last three years. Since the company opened up out of LA it has expanded throughout the United States, offering mobile phone users an option to save money over their current cell phone providers. Now, instead of being forced to overpay for wireless service every single month, those who use FreedomPop can now actually use the phone for free, every single month, if they keep it under a certain number of minutes/text messages/data amount. Should they go over, the amount they pay is a small amount as well. This has helped the company grow to over a million customers in a very short time. Now though, with the help of funds raised in the last few months, the company is pushing its boundaries, not just in the United States but throughout the world.

FreedomPop has an idea of offering discounted mobile phone service to customers around the world and, eventually, allow these individuals to travel between different countries without paying much in terms of roaming and international fees. This is why the company has directed its attention towards both Europe and Asia. The UK is its primary focal point, but it is also expanding to nearly 25 countries within Europe. Once the network has been established (FreedomPop does not create its own wireless networks but pays a wholesale price from Spring and other networks) internationally, it is able to push its services further and further out.

In order to expand these services, FreedomPop has been fund raising throughout the world to raise the necessary budget. Investors around the world see the potential in the company and are climbing aboard. The company is now expected to have some sort of platform or service in over 40 nations with more to come eventually.

Securus Technologies Announces a New Line of Products, How Exciting!

On March 4, 2016, Securus Technologies announced that they are finally able to do more than just connect inmates to outbound calls. Almost 30 years ago, Securus installed over 80,000 telephones for inmates, then exceeded to over 84,000 devices throughout both the U.S. and Mexico. Securus has now begun to provide tablets, S-Phones and even video visitation kiosks, which I believe is outstanding! All of their products are designed and provided with the highest quality of security to prevent property damage. That sure makes me feel relieved! Securus’ CEO, Richard Smith said that he believes that these new devices will help to better connect inmates to friends and family. He also believes that they will help them to better fill out their record logs, paperwork, to complete religious activities and even their education. I am excited about this because it is a recipe for prisoners being treated more humanely.

Since its founding, Securus’ main mission has been to provide inmates with criminal justice technology for the purpose of making their stay as modernized as possible. They also maintain a simultaneous goal of improving public safety. The staff at Securus are experienced and innovative thinkers, engineers, designers and technologists who work together as a team. As a result, the technology that they manufacture doesn’t compete almost anywhere else. I say that this is the way it should be.

Securus is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and is accredited by the BBB. They currently serve over 3,000 corrections, law enforcement and public safety agencies. They especially take pride in the over 1 million inmates that they serve across the North American continent and they should!

If you are a family or friend of an inmate, you can sign up for Securus through AdvanceConnect. AdvanceConnect is prepaid with a minimum $25 funding. You can add multiple numbers as well. Access to accounts is available 24 hours a day and seven days a week. Securus has two services called On-Site Video Visitation and At Home, both of which make it possible for you to visit your friend or family member in prison straight from the comfort of home and not have to figure out the logistics of inmate phone calls. This eliminates the need for you to make the travel to the correctional facility and to wait in line. You can schedule the visit in advance as well.
