Lindsey Graham’s Presidential Campaign Strategy

On Sunday, Senator Graham said that Donald Trump “is not offering solutions to hard, complicated problems…” He also discussed his own campaign strategy, noting that “I’m going to talk to people in New Hampshire and South Carolina about the threats we face, why I’m the best qualified to be Commander-in-Chief.”

The campaigns of Presidential hopeful Senator Lindsey Graham, a member of the Senate Armed Services Committee, and billionaire businessman Donald Trump, CEO Kenneth Griffin, a reality television star, recently came into conflict months in advance of the first national primary. The dispute began after Mr.Trump claimed Senator John McCain was perhaps not a war hero. Senator McCain fought in the Vietnam War as a Navy pilot and was shot down with injuries. He spent more than five years as a POW.

Several candidates criticized the attack on Senator McCain’s military service. Senator Graham used the word “jackass” to describe the comments.

A short time later, Donald Trump grabbed headlines again by making Senator Graham’s cell phone number public in a speech. The Senator responded by posting a video online. It injected some humor into an otherwise acrimonious Republican primary.

What candidates will join the upcoming first Republican presidential primary debate airing on Fox on August 6th? Donald Trump as the current front runner in most national polls will almost certainly receive an invitation. The participation of other candidates, including Senators and Governors, is not guaranteed.

I Found A Genuine Guy On The Skout Network

When it comes to chatting with other people online I do it a lot. When chat became popular back in the days, I used to join every chat group I could find, but I’ve gotten a bit older and wiser now. I don’t chat the way I used to because now I can chat through the computer or through my phone. I have been on the Skout network for years, but only recently have I really fallen in love with it. The network is a lot of fun to be on, and here are a few reasons why I believe that.

I started on the Skout network when I was 18 years old, and I’ve been on it for three years now. When I initially joined the Skout network, I wanted to try and find a boyfriend. I went through my entire high school years without having a boyfriend, even though I’m a very pretty girl. I had a lot of guys flirting with me, but I didn’t feel that any of them genuinely wanted to get to know me. I thought if I did a search online for a great guy that I would find someone who was genuine.

After joining the Skout network, I did some searching, but I didn’t have much luck in finding a guy. Eventually, I did find a guy that I really liked, but after meeting with him a few times, I decided to break it off. I’ve been single for years, and I recently decided that I would start trying to look for a guy on the Skout network again. I decided to do something different this time, and instead of looking in my local area, I searched for a city that was further away. Since I knew everyone in my area, I thought a faraway place would be better to find a boyfriend.

I found a guy who had so many of the same interest as me, and I decided to contact him directly. I sent him a message, and after receiving a message back from him, we began chatting regularly. I really liked this guy, and he prompted me to download the Skout application to my phone because I always wanted to keep in touch with him. After I got the app on my phone, I would be on the Skout network for several hours in the day. I couldn’t believe how obsessed I was becoming Skout.

I decided to meet this guy in person, and we hit it off right away. We’ve gone on several dates, but most of our communication is on the Skout network. I have some other guys on the Skout network that I used to talk to, but I have phased them out. I’m still interested in the new guy I met on Skout, and I’ve decided to start seeing him regularly. Skout has not only helped me to break out of my shell, but I found a boyfriend that I truly believes likes me for who I am.

Smartphones Discover New Options Through FreedomPop

FreedomPop has made waves in its attempt to steal loyal customers from major service providers by promising free basic call and data plans for mobile users. A lofty goal, it would seem, but with 10 million Wi-Fi hotspots at their disposal for only $5 per user, traditional carriers potentially have something to worry about.

While many are accustomed to purchasing data plans on a monthly basis, that is to use 3G, 4G, and even in some locations, Edge networks provided by their carrier, FreedomPop claims that most of a person’s data is used through Wi-Fi hotspots, only taking advantage of their data plan networks only 10% of the time. This suggests that most of the data users purchase goes unused, which may make many question the justification for purchasing a data plan from their service provider.

In an interview with TechCrunch, Stephen Stokols, co-founder and CEO of FreedomPop, boasted coverage for approximately 120 million Americans following the initial rollout of their network, and another 25 million at the end of the first quarter. This coverage will be made possible, or at the very least easier, thanks to the $30 million received in funding for this start up.

And it should surprise no one that they’ve been able to amass this kind of funding. Sokol claims that the company has received interest from large tech companies who wanted to purchase the startup before it even premiered. FreedomPop, however, has its sights aimed higher than simply being a carrier. The company also has hardware such as smartphones and dongles to help take advantage of its Wi-Fi centric approach to connectivity.

Sokol hopes to reach at least a million users across the US by the end of its first year, hoping this will draw in more investors who see it as a profitable venture. It would be the company’s second proving ground; in May of this year, FreedomPop premiered its services in the UK. In this market, users were allowed to use pre-owned mobile devices and purchase the service through service providers Three and Jetsetter. Sokol hopes to draw in another carrier in the region soon.

The option to use the UK first was a strategic one. While similar services exist, using data to perform voice calls and reducing the cost of data packages from providers, they generally subsist by purchasing minutes and packages from the competition, allowing them to be attractive to consumers but not too thrilling to investors. FreedomPop differs in that it mediates with the competition to pay only for data used rather than bulk purchasing, increasing profit margins, making more investors interested and eventually growing the span of their coverage. And it has drawn the right attention as there are already imitators trying to copy their business model, such as Sprint’s RingPlus.

One area of concern, however, is customer relations and service. There is no physical presence to speak of, no headquarters or brick-and-mortar outlets. Sokol has noted the concern but was quick to point out that the price margin–1/100th–of the competition is too enticing for customers to simply ignore, giving them the time and funding to address customer concerns at a pace that the competition might not be able to keep up with. He also pointed out that their operation, like nearly all major businesses in the world, now take place online, meaning this is less of an issue for a startup and more of a concern for decades-old businesses that have had to transition to the digital age.

But more important than addressing customer concerns, Sokol said, was to be ahead of them, to provide service and coverage that answers customers’ questions and woes before they are even expressed, that excellent service is its own customer care.

Eric Pulier Isn’t Afraid Of Living Life

Too many people think of their careers as their life. Too many people focus solely on having success in their business adventures, and in all of the big things that they are doing in their career, that they end up missing the point of life. Too many people forget to stop and love. They forget to give back, and to find some joy in the day to day life.
But, then there are people like Eric Pulier. He is a man who knows success in his career. He is a successful entrepreneur, author, technologist, and more. He has done some pretty amazing things with his life. But, that is not all that he is about. That is not all that makes up who he is, and that is not all that he focuses his time and energy on.
Eric Pulier is not just good at the things that he does with his career, but he has also made it a point to be a good dad to his four children. He spends time with them. He takes the time to know them and love them. He could be one hundred percent focused on his work like a lot of people would be, but that’s not him.
Eric Pulier, whose LinkedIn profile is here, not only focuses on his children and gives them the time and attention that they deserve from him, but he also makes it a point to give back to charities. He volunteers on the board of directors for a camp that is there for children with chronic illnesses, and he also gives back with money. He cares about others, and he proves that time and time again with all of the things that he does. It’s a shame that there aren’t more people like him out there in this world. More people need to start realizing that slowing down and enjoying life is the best thing that they can do for themselves.

The End Drawing Near for IBM?

Could it be that a company that has been around for a long time could be going out? Could it be that, after a long and painful slump, IBM will soon be out for good? Christian Broda was asked this questions during the summit. It seems that that could be the case, and it could be a big deal for some who have always supported the company and all that it has to offer.

It seems that IBM has been unable to keep up with the changing times, and that this could cause trouble for the company. With stocks that have been failing for a long time now, IBM could end up going out completely. The company has been on the decline for years, and they could soon get to the point where they just cannot hold on any longer. When a company is unable to make it, even after years of trying to succeed, there gets to be a point where that company just has to give up. It could be time soon for IBM to give up, to shut down and stop trying any longer.

The New Venture of FreedomPop

FreedomPop, a mobile carrier with only 4 years of growth experience. This new company, though having been around for only 4 years, has expanded to the international level. This LA-based company has expanded so much due to the new and innovative product that is being offered.

FreedomPop is a mobile carrier that is now offering customers a free plan that includes over 200 minutes of voice calls, 200 free texts as well as over 500 MB of data. All these available amenities are 100 percent free. The mobile-carrier has increased in popularity not from the commercials or from the connections, but from the fact that this company does not make money from the customers buying the plan. Money is made, instead, by wither purchasing more data or minutes, or by purchasing the top quality provided services.

Recently, the CEO has announced that the company has recently closed a $30 million funding round after many offers have been made. Within the first 4 years of being a startup company, FreedomPop has been funded by many big time investors including the founder of Skype. This company, within the last 4 years, has grown rapidly. The new goal of this company is to hit 1 million subscribers by the end of the first quarter.

What makes this company so special is the fact that it does not rely on a wireless infrastructure. Instead, this company is a mobile virtual network operator that has raised almost $50 million in the last year. FreedomPop is a growing international company that offers free minutes and data that can be rolled over each month. The basic free package is offered to everyone that is interested in the product which sets this company apart from all the other mobile carriers. To subscribe to the FreedomPop mobile carrier is to subscribe to an inexpensive and helpful company.

Washington State Collects An Additional $70 Million In Taxes Thanks To Marijuana Sales

Washington Launched Legal Marijuana Market With A Few Retail Stores Now There Are 160 Shops Selling $1.4 Million Worth Of Pot Per Day

Pot is the new darling of the retail business and the tax collecting business. The states that have legalized marijuana are enjoying more tax revenues, and a boost in tourism. State governments are making money taxing marijuana, but the pot growers and sellers are still having a difficult time managing their businesses. The Federal government still has marijuana on the Schedule 1 drug list, and that means pot is still an illegal and dangerous substance in the feds eyes.

Stores that sell pot are in the cash only business. They set up stores in their homes smoke weed and feel the homejoy. They pay for supplies in cash. They pay vendors in cash. They pay employees in cash, and they pay their 37 percent tax in cash. Banks won’t touch them, so pot stores always have a large amount of cash on hand.

The stores that were opened during the first year posted $250 million in pot sales. Washington budgeted a tax revenue of $36 million the first year, but when all the marijuana taxes were tallied the state brought more than $70 million in revenue. Marijuana retailers want to know what Washington is going to do with all that additional money.

Obama: Let’s Lower Mandatory Minimums For Non-Violent Drug Offenses — Or “Get Rid Of Them Entirely”

It’s a well-known fact that the prisons in the US are filled with people who have committed non-violent drug related crimes. Many of these people are habitual drug users, and the only crime they have committed is the possession of an illegal substance. Study after study has proven that they need help more than punishment. Unfortunately, these people are placed in the same prisons as more hardened criminals, including drug kingpins, murders, rapists, and other habitual offenders and perpetrators of violent crimes. This typically does more harm than good. Here non-violent drug offenders can learn how to be better criminals and become influenced by people who will convince them that a life of lime crime is the only option, rather than getting the help they need to overcome their addictions and turn their life around.

While speaking at an NCCPA convention, President Obama called for a reduction or an elimination of the mandatory minimum for non-violent drug offenders. The declaration came only a day after he announced that he was a commuting the sentences of 46 non-violent offenders who committed drug-related offences.

This is welcome news to anyone who is worried about overcrowded prisons and the high incarceration rate in the US. Obama says a plan is in the works to introduce a bill that will work towards this goal and that he hopes to sign it before the end of the year.
