The product is one of many innovations the company will be launching in the very near future.
The Dashboard will enhance user experience and it will be the cornerstone for the improvements yet to come. To also enhance the user experience, the products are reasonably priced and according to the Founder and CEO (Chief Executive Officer) Bob Reina, that is a very good thing for Talk Fusion. The company is not satisfied with finding its niche and staying there, but always evolving to meet the demands of whatever communication needs the future holds.
The goal of Talk Fusion is to change the manner in which people communicate by providing products with cutting edge and state of the art technologies that eliminate the speed bumps and pot holes that are still hindering communication today. This includes making the necessary improvements to existing products to take advantage of new and improved technology and developing new products to fill in the communication gap.

Talk Fusion customers will have access to an email service that allows them to send any volume of emails simultaneously. Videos accompanying emails can be stored on the Talk Fusion web site. If customers are not proficient at creating videos, there are pre-made videos to choose from. Learn more: https://www.youtube.com/user/TalkFusionOfficial
The impetus for Talk Fusion began as finding a solution to including videos in an email. At one time it was not possible to do that, but Bob Reina knew there was a solution for that. After finding that solution, Reina went on to develop products that embraced the manner in which people communicate and do business. As a result the Talk Fusion includes Live Meetings, Video Chat, Video email and Video Newsletters. Talk Fusion allows streaming video which means customers can load a Power Point Presentation and invite up to 500 guests to view the presentation.

Kerrisdale Capital Chief Investment Officer & Founder Sahm Adrangi foresees potential troubles for the global firm, Eastman Kodak (NYSE: KODK). Is it struggling to handle digital technology? What specific concerns were raised in his assessment?
Eastman Kodak Problems
On February 7, 2018 Kerrisdale Capital Chief Investment Officer & Founder Sahm Adrangi explained why he was shorting Eastman Kodak on CNBC. Kodak is a commercial printing, imaging, camera and film company, whose stock has risen 187% after announcing its blockchain cryptocurrency partnership. Learn more about Sahm Adrangi at Businessinsider.com.
Mr. Sahm Adrangi does not think that the announcement changes the poor performance and unsustainable capital structure of Eastman Kodak. The announcement seemed to be aimed at jumping on the ICO bandwagon – it is full of sound and fury, but devoid of substance.
Needless to say, since the stock’s run up, a short position could be an attempt to take profits. ICOs are actually very competitive and Eastman Kodak might be competing with more agile, blockchain technologies that have more free capital. Mr. Adrangi does not think that Eastman Kodak’s brand name is enough to stem the tide.

Some people who succeed in their career life after great struggles are a true inspiration to many others. One such man is Nick Vertucci, Founder, and CEO of the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy. Vertucci was brought up in a humble family where both his parents loved him. They made sure that they provided for him and his siblings’ everything they needed until Nick was at the age of ten when his father died. His mother was forced to work throughout the day to provide for them and often came back at late hours when everyone as asleep. At the age of eighteen, Nick Vertucci was at his hardest time of life.
Fortunately, Vertucci found a breakthrough when he started his own business where he used to sell computer parts. At that time when he was successful, Nick decided to marry and even got three daughters. Unfortunately, things again turned worse when the dot-com crash of 2000 came, and Nick lost all his money. The dot-com period was the period when the usage and adaptation to the internet enormously grew. Internet-based companies developed and later the dot-com bubble collapsed, and the companies fell. Other people who had made investments in the companies also lost their money.
Having very little income, Nick Vertucci was forced to get into debts which later became a problem. He eventually lost everything excluding his home. During this time, a friend to Nick, fortunately, invited him to a real estate training seminar which would last three days. Although unwilling to use his weekend in a workshop, Vertucci decided to go. At the seminar, Verucci understood some of which was said by the speaker but not all. He thought of what was said and was inspired by the real estate business. He became determined to learn more about the real estate business, and it took him about ten years to learn all that he needed to start.
He developed a simple system which allowed him to make money in real estate. Within no time, Vertucci had become a millionaire and got out of all his debts. He was given inspiration also to help others with the same problems and founded the Nick Vertucci Real Estate Academy in 2013. The academy has locations across the U.S such as Nevada. The college offers lessons on real estates and has since helped many people in the real estate business.
One of the biggest sticking points in business involves company compensation of its rank and file employees. Shareholders want to keep the cost of employees down. However, good talent does not come cheap and the best employees want some sort of incentive for their performance. Now, one compensation expert has created what may be the perfect compensation idea. That compensation expert, New York Lawyer Jeremy Goldstein, has created a compensation structure where employees, companies executive, and shareholders can all walk away happy.
First off, let us get to the major issue which dominates a company’s financials – this is known as Earnings Per Share or EPS. Most employee compensation and incentives are valued based on the EPS. If the EPS is high, then some companies will trigger a bonus or higher pay structure for their employees and executives. However, measuring compensation solely by EPS can be a double-edged sword.
Executives can make dangerous short-term decisions to drive up a company’s EPS at the expense of the companies long-term survivability. For instance, a car company can offer a bunch of “no money down, no payments for 12 months” deals to quickly clear out their auto inventory. Sales and EPS would surge for the car company in the short term. However, many of those car buyers may be unqualified borrowers and unable to make the payments on their cars, leading to an avalanche of defaults.
Jeremey Goldstein’s idea is to tie employee compensation to the long-term performance of a company’s senior executives. A CEO with a 5-year growth plan will better position a company for long-term success. The result is that employees will also have an incentive to stay with the company to execute the long-term goals of the CEO. And the shareholders can also find longterm value into holding onto the company’s shares.
Jeremy Goldstein has decades of experience as both a practicing attorney as well as a corporate compensation expert. Currently, Mr. Goldstein is the Principal Partner at Jeremy Goldstein & Associates LLC, a boutique law firm specializing in corporate compensation. Prior to opening his own firm, Mr. Goldstein worked for a number of law firms.
Educated at the New York University School of Law, Jeremy Goldstein’s portfolio of experience includes work for several major cellular companies as well as work in the energy and financial sector. In addition to his work at his legal practice, Jeremy Goldstein is also a contributing writer for the NYU Journal of Law and Business. Learn more: https://www.linkedin.com/in/jeremy-goldstein-26aa1b4

The people behind Securus probably started their company with the simple goal of providing communication services to correctional facilities. The idea was simple enough, but every dream can morph into something else at any given time. There is no way the people who spearheaded this company would know how big it would become or how revolutionary.
Securus is one of the first to introduce inmate communication technology that allows for inmates to talk to loved ones through the internet. This has allowed for email communication, text, and even video chats. Most people know how expensive it is to make a phone call from or to correctional facilities, so offering other means of communication makes a big difference.
Furthermore, the giant inmate communication company has also made quite a name for itself in some of the communities it serves. For example, Securus wanted to make sure they did their part in the state of Louisiana when it survived those tragic floods a few years ago. The company’s heads wished the very best to the people of the state, but it also made sure that those who wish to call people in state prisons could do so for free. This step was necessary to make sure people did not stress out thinking a loved one was unsafe. Several people took advantage of the offer and were able to rest easy. The people of the state were thankful for Securus Technologies and some of the other companies who stepped up for them in their time of need.
There is no doubt that Securus took a stand when it mattered, and it continues to look forward, attempting to see what other steps they can take to help others. Another action taken by the company worth noting is their wireless containment system. The system is being perfected with the help of an ex-correctional facility officer. This step is necessary to keep people safe since some prisoners have used illegal cellphones to make dangerous calls. Johnson, for example, fell victim to the power of one of these calls when he was shot more than four times in the stomach. The intent was to kill him, and he is not the only person whose life has been put in danger because an inmate got a hold of one of these phones.
Johnson and Securus are doing their best to make sure that their wireless containment system is able to keep these phones from being used again to hurt others. The program is only meant to block signals within the facility and no where else, which is part of what makes it usable. Some states do not allow companies to block cellphone signals, so this looks promising. Making sure correctional facility officers like Johnson are safe is important. Every call needs to be monitored to keep people safe, which is ultimately what everyone wants.
