Don Ressler, Kate Hudson And Fabletics

The average person wants to feel beautiful. One of the best ways to feel beautiful is to dress well. However, dressing well isn’t enough for some people. They have to have their own trademark. This is one thing that could be said about Don Ressler and Kate Hudson, the people that are behind the creation and marketing of Fabletics. Kate Hudson herself has a love for fashion. She has an understanding about style. While other people may try to get caught up with the latest trends on, it is Kate Hudson who looks at what truly works for her and allows herself to shine in those.

Kate Hudson is always impressive with what fashion has for her. However, she as well as Don Ressler has noticed that there is a huge limit on what women can do with active wear. Fortunately, Don Ressler is someone who has come up with some really good ideas in order to open up the athletic fashion industry. This has resulted in Fabletics, the athletic branch of JustFab. Kate Hudson and Don Ressler were happy with the results. Kate Hudson as well as some other celebrities have showcased the items that come from the company. Kate Hudson was one of the most effective marketers given that she had one of the best bodies for the marketing.

She not only shows herself in some of the products that are available, she also encourages other people to explore their athletic style. She has gone on interviews in order to talk about the new brand. Among the things that she has pointed out about the type of clothes that are offered by Fabletics is that some of them are created for working out while others are created more for leisure.

Fabletics was created with a vision according to Don Ressler. This vision was to bring diversity to people. That way, people will be able to enjoy a wide variety of looks and even come up with their own looks. The most important aspect of style is that of self expression. People do say a lot about themselves with the clothes they wear. Therefore, it is important for them to choose carefully what they want to wear according to Ressler.

Louisiana Inmates Granted Free Phone Calls From Securus Technologies

The flooding in Louisiana has had devastating impacts and affected people who have suffered both major and minor damages to their homes. But some people who haven’t been mentioned on the news, are inmates in Louisiana’s correctional facilities who have had families in the flood zones, and have been unable to help them. However, major corrections facility communication provider Securus Technologies is now doing its part to help inmates stay in close contact with loved ones during this time. For a week, all inmates in Louisiana will get one free call each day to make sure all loved ones are okay. In addition, Securus will be sending about $50,000 to the inmate welfare fund to provide other services during this time. Rick Smith, Securus’s CEO hopes this will help alleviate the stress over the concern for family safety and security, even if it means taking extraordinary measures.


Securus Technologies has been a leading telecom provider for thousands of corrections facilities across the US, with over 1 million inmates and thousands of corrections officers as the beneficiaries of its service. It has primarily been the phone service provider, with options for prepay or direct billing that allows inmates to use prepaid cards, or families to have charges billed to their regular phone bills. Securus also supplies voice mail and instant mail, a product that works similarly to email that’s cut down on mailroom operating expenses. In addition, families can now visit incarcerated loved ones through Securus video visitation service, which allows inmates to talk face-to-face with their families and saves travel time.


Securus also has incident response and threat alert systems built into its infrastructure. Word patterns can be detected in mail and phone communications that Securus uses to notify appropriate personnel. Emergency response units will also be notified if Securus’ surveillance technology notices a dangerous incident that’s about to occur.

Securus Technologies Releases Its First in a Series of Wrong-Doing Claims by a Competitor

Securus Technologies, provider if civil and criminal justice technology products and services, is planning the release of several reports and articles discussing the wrong-doing of one of their major competitors, Global Tel Link(GTL). They just released the first in the series. Securus is releasing the reports in order to shame GTL into acting with a higher level of integrity.

Rick Smith, CEO of Securus says the he loves the industry of serving the needs of law enforcement, corrections and society. It angers him and other companies in the industry when a company stoops as low as GTL has. He claims that the industry is about more than just money, it is about serving the needs of the customers as well. Over the next six months, Securus will release different articles with the issues they have found.

First Claim

The first is a report by the Louisiana Public Service Commission (PSC). It claims that when GTL provided outbound telecom services to thousands of inmates, in the state, they added either 15 or 36 seconds to each call. This practice is completely unlawful. GTL also programmed the phones to rate calls on a higher rate schedule than authorized. They even added additional charges to phone bills after the calls had been rated. This too is unlawful. Because of these activities, Louisiana taxpayers were overcharged by $1,243,000. This is just one case GTL used unscrupulous practices with.

Securus Technologies

This case was recorded over 18 years ago, however, Securus claims that these practices have continued to the present time. They will submit more reports shortly. Securus is headquartered in Dallas, Texas and provides technology services to over 3,450 law enforcement and correctional agencies.
