I recently learned about an interesting company that created technology platforms that help keep our prison systems safe from negative influences on the inside. I had never really thought much about the dangers to our prison system from the influx of technology, I had mostly thought that contraband weapons and drugs were the most major threat. However, by gaining access to contraband technology through cell phones being snuck into a prison, inmates can launch a variety of criminal acts that can affect people on the outside.
Securus Technologies is seeking to stop the use of illegal cell phones in prisons. They have a technology that can seek out and pinpoint a contraband cell phone that has been snuck in to an inmate. They can then take this mobile phone away from the inmate and ensure that they are not used to do damage to people outside the prison walls.
Securus also has a technology that can disable the wireless connectivity of cell phones. This means that even if a contraband cell phone is brought in to a prison, it will be unable to connect to a wireless network where the inmate could do real damage or do illegal activity.
Securus is led by CEO Rick Smith who is passionate about prison security technology. He noted in a recent article that every week the company creates a new technology or advancement on existing technology.
Users of Securus Technologies recently wrote in to describe how important Securus had been to their facility. One person wrote that by using Securus Technology, they were able to undercover a ring of inmates bringing in drugs, alcohol and other contraband items. Another client wrote in that by using Securus Technologies they were able to monitor a phone call and find an inmate that was coaxing his brother to lie for him on the stand. They were then able to stop that from happening and the inmate was convicted.
A private firm has exploited an offshore well in Mexican waters for the first time in approximately 80 years. The exploration is the recent step in the nation’s push to allow foreigners into its energy market. A team ventures including Houston’s Talos Energy LLC, London-based Premier Oil and Sierra Oil & Gas kicked off drilling of the well, as from May 21st. It is the first exploration in Mexican waters, to be undertaken by any company other than Petroleos Mexicanos, a state-controlled monopoly, since the nationalization of its oil industry in 1938 and read full article.
The well, Zama-1, is located in the Sureste Basin and holds around 100 to 500 million barrels of crude oil. The drilling is expected to be completed in 90 days and may cost $16 million. The three firms won the tender to prospect after bidding in the first round after Mexico voted to allow private investments in its troubled oil industry in 2015 and learn more about Talos Energy.
The oil industry is keenly watching this drilling because it is the first non-Pemex well sunk since the opening up of the Mexican waters. The geological structure of Sureste Basin suggests that the project has very high chances of succeeding. Charlie Sharp, an analyst at the Canaccord Genuity Ltd, said that according to the Mexican market’s circumstances, Zama might turn out to be a fascinating exploration to have taken place this year. Talos operates the well and owns a stake of 35%, Premier owns 25%, and Sierra holds 40% stake in the venture and contact their.
