Doctor Jennifer Walden is one of the leading women plastic surgeons in the United States. After years of practicing in New York City, Walden has return to her home state of Texas in 2011, quickly becoming the go-to plastic surgeon in her hometown of Austin. She specializes in using laser technology in her procedures, which are all cosmetic surgeries. Her focus is on face lifts, rhinoplasties, eye lifts, and breast augmentation. She is an expert in her field, even having helping to author a book on the subject called Aesthetic Plastic Surgery.

A firm believe in the old adage “looking good is feeling good”, Dr. Walden provides her patients with that added boost of confidence they nee to feel their best. That could mean anything from a breast augmentation to less invasive procedures like Botox injections and liposuctions. She does not have a lot of competition from other female plastic surgeons, which is something that set her apart in the industry as only about 11% of board certified plastic surgeons are women. She is one of only 2% of plastic surgeons that are members of the American Society for Aesthetic Plastic Surgery (ASAPS).

Dr. Jennifer Walden is a graduate of the University of Texas with a bachelor’s in Biology and received her Medical Doctorate degree with a residency at the University of Texas Medical Branch. She then moved to New York City, and completed a fellowship program at the Manhattan Eye, Ear, and Throat Hospital, where she also worked for the better part of eight years. She moved back to Austin, Texas in 2011 and started her own practice called Walden Cosmetic Surgery Center. In 2014, Dr. Walden was recognized by Harper’s Bazaar as one 24 Best Beauty Surgeons in the United States. His facebook page

The American Institute of Architecture was first called the New York Society of Architects when it was chartered in 1857. The group of 13 local architects soon decided that the name was too specific, changing the group’s name to its current iteration. The moved proved to be a good one as the institute grew rather quickly. Local chapters of the AIA popped up all over New England and by the 1880s there were local chapters as far west as Saint Louis, Missouri.

The AIA was formed in order to elevate the profession and provide a set of standards for architects of the day. In 1857 there were schools for architecture and no licensing programs so any person could call themselves an architect. The AIA changed that. In order to be a member of the AIA, one must have graduated from an accredited architectural program and be a licensed architect by a state licensure program. The result, as of 2008 there were over 90,000 architects with membership in the AIA. There are currently over 260 local chapters across the United States, Canada, Europe, Asia, and the United Kingdom.

Known as one of the premier architectural critics of the past 20 years, Robert Ivy is the Executive Vice President and CEO of the AIA. He was named to the position in 2011 after a long career in the field. Robert graduated from the University of the South with a Bachelor’s degree in Art and then attended Tulane University where he received a Master’s in Architecture. He then became a principal at Dean/Dale Dean & Ivy, where he worked as an architect from 1981 to 1996. In 1996 Ivy became the Editorial Director at the Architectural Record. Under his management, the publication has won numerous awards including 26 Jesse H. Neal awards and an Award for General Excellence by the American Society of Magazine Editors.

Robert Ivy also serves as the Vice President and Editorial Director of McGraw-Hill Construction Media and is an accomplished author. In 2001, Ivy published the authoritative biography of the famous apprentice of architect Frank Lloyd Wright, title Fay Jones: Architect. Ivy continues to be a large voice in the architectural community and is dedicated to bringing architecture into the 21st century.

The political world is in complete upheaval right now, thanks in large part to the election of Donald Trump and the systematical dismantling of our nations most proud institutions due to Trump’s administration. With all of that being said, hope has not been lost and there are groups working tirelessly in order to ensure that changes back to normalcy are coming. One of those groups is End Citizens United, a political action committee, and they are looking to make an impact in one election specifically — the Pennsylvania Special Election that is coming up on March 13th.

In 2018 we are looking at a huge year of elections and this could possibly be one of the most important election years in recent memory. In 2018 the Congressional Midterms will begin and there is hope around the nation that a corresponding Blue Wave will be coming. For that Blue Wave to take effect, Democratic nominee Conor Lamb will have to find success in a traditionally red district against a Republican by the name of Rick Saccone. Saccone is a 59-year-old former military intelligence officer who has the backing of Donald Trump himself.

Conor Lamb is only 33-years-old but he has already established himself as someone who can flourish in a traditional red area thanks to his reach into both mill towns and rural areas. Lamb’s going to still need some help overcoming the Republican money-making machine. Thankfully, End Citizens United is stepping in to help fulfill that mission.

End Citizens United has been making noise for the past two years as one of the most prominent grassroots, progressive fundraising groups. End Citizens United was established in order to make their name a reality by introducing progressive legislators into the highest levels of government in order to repeal the 2010 SCOTUS decision regarding the conservative group Citizens United. The Citizens United decision essentially allowed corporations and big businesses unfettered access to introducing dark money into politics. The reasons why this are bad remain pretty obvious.

End Citizens United’s decision to endorse Conor Lamb shouldn’t surprise anyone. Lamb has already agreed to champion progressive politics in areas that he finds agreeable and he has also become a champion for campaign finance reform. Right now, Democrats are sweeping through the nation taking House seats and if Lamb finds success then the movement could gain even more momentum. Still, Lamb and ECU have a lot of work ahead of them.

The more we learn about the private industry, the more we understand why this area of society needs to be heavily guarded. There are processes, concepts and agendas that governments must employ that we often don’t need to be involved with. The recent work of Securus Technologies is taking that work and accomplishing it for us and the U.S. government.

 

Securus Technologies creates special technology that only private industry can put to use. This includes the daily work of the United States government and the pace it must keep to stay ahead of criminal infiltration or the technologies they’re now using. What occurred in recent weeks is bringing security in the private industry hundreds of steps ahead of crime.

 

 

Why There’s No End To What Securus Can Accomplish

 

We have to better understand who Securus Technologies is and to better grasp the transition the agency makes in processing secure transactions. The Securus firm operates technology. The complication of its work is that technology seems to change everyday. This means that Securus must consist of a team of professionals who understand the advances being made.

 

What we advance with in the public world gives criminals an upper-hand in what is an ironic situation. Take your simple cell phone as an example. We use these devices daily, and they help us to work within a modern world without delay. New technology like this is offered to the world and can therefore be used for illegal purposes.

 

Securus works to keep these illegal uses at bay and especially when those activities enter the private sector.

 

 

The Flexibility Of The Private Industry And Securus Technologies

 

There’s only one brand of flexibility in the private sector. The growth of technology must be closely followed by the growth of security technology. Securus is among many agencies constantly searching for ways to improve the society we have. This is done by maintaining the daily safety we use and can often take for granted.
