The recent incident involving UC Davis’ attempt to bury images of police pepper spraying peaceful protesters has brought the industry of online status management to the fore of public discourse. The university paid $175,000 to a consultant firm to prevent photos from appearing on the first page of search results. The backlash has unearthed the reality that the practice is frequently used by organizations and individuals both private and public. The industry is effectively marketing for the digital age, the equivalent of keeping a scandal out of the 8 o’ clock news.
While search result scrubbing techniques are often used as crisis control, Sam Fisher, president and cofounder of Status Labs, notes that being prepared is cheaper and more effective. His company thus advocates taking a proactive approach to controlling one’s online profile. This begins by wiping contact information from data brokers such as Whitepages, and also from social media profiles. Following this, he believes one of the Achille’s heals for many low-profile figures concerned about the contingency of scandal is a lack of positive internet content.
Without having information available to illustrate positive traits and achievements, one even marginally publicized negative story can define a person’s internet personality. Thus Darius Fisher offers clients preemptively created positive content to balance out potential negative content. If these steps are not taken prior to a bad story breaking it can be very difficult, but not impossible, to control search results. Unfortunately for some clients, Fisher refuses to offer his services to people who have committed particularly heinous acts.
Indeed the industry deals with many ethical questions. and some public relations firms flat out refuse to artificially alter search results. Expert in marketing at the USC Ira S. Kalb notes of UC Davis’ situation, that sometimes the best response to controlling results is to diffuse the situation by offering a public apology. Suppressing information can cause a build up and reaction, resulting in even worse press. Follow Darius on Twitter for more information.

Athleisure fashion is something that many people are starting to experience the benefits of. This allows people more options when it comes to clothing. It is nice to be able to be able to wear clothes that one could get a workout in as well as go out for the night. However, this is not to say that other forms of fashion are inferior. One good thing about fashion is that it gives people the ability to express themselves through clothing. For one thing, fashion is about self expression as much as it is about keeping warm and looking good.
Also, fashion can be a way to impress others like friends, family and others. It is especially a great feeling to wear something that is rarely worn. When we dress in something that is unique, we can feel great about ourselves depending on how it is unique. Fortunately, Athleisure is a very unique style of clothing that will bring about the new styles and cuts that we could enjoy. With athleisure, there are tons of options when it comes to putting together an outfit. If we want to work out and feel good about how we look, then athleisure is a clothing line that is worth considering.
One fashion label that does athleisure is Fabletics on thekrazycouponlady. Fabletics is a division of JustFab. Fabletics was started up by Kate Hudson who has noticed some kind of gap in fashion when it comes to athletic clothing. She created Fabletics under the notion that one can look good while participating in athletic activities. The clothing styles that are offered are very durable. They also are very affordable on Instagram. It is not necessary to cough up a fortune in order to buy some appealing clothing. Kate Hudson has made sure that a unique style is available to people of all income brackets.
Whether you’ve been searching for new hair products that are made from natural ingredients, or you’ve seen a Wen commercial or two, you may be curious about the product. Wen Hair shampoos and conditioners by Chaz Dean are filled with plant extracts and oils that promise to condition and strengthen your hair. Emily McClure from Bustle tried the Fig variety of WEN Hair Conditioner which she purchased from Sephora for a full week, and her review could help you decide if the product is right for you.
McClure stated that it takes quite a bit of conditioner for each wash, but it’s well worth it, since Wen Hair helped to smooth the hair and make it feel thicker. McClure said that for the first few days, she felt that her hair was greasy, but it was much less frizzy and appeared to be thicker. By the fourth day, McClure said her hair was oily, and wouldn’t hold a curl for very long.

Melissa Click had been a professor at the University of Missouri for twelve years when everything seemed to unravel at once. Click experienced first hand the powers of the internet and the inherent danger in allowing yourself to ‘go viral’. Going viral can make or break a persons reputation and not only in a good way, as Melissa ended up hearing.
Melissa Click had been standing by at a student protest against racism on the grounds of the University of Missouri. Protests themselves are always going to be emotional affairs and perhaps this was the case when Click responded poorly to a student journalist on campus. The journalist was pressing Click for an interview when the teacher demanded that the journalist leave the area. The journalist obviously refused and Click immediately called for ‘muscle’ to ‘remove’ the journalist.
Obviously this moment didn’t play well on camera and it fared even worse for Click when the video was uploaded and shared tens of thousands of times. It didn’t take long before Melissa was suspended from the university and then summarily hit with a misdemeanor charge — forced to pay back via community service. Now with the charges behind her Click is focused steadfastly on improving herself and her reputation by looking at the long haul alongside the company Status Labs.
Status Labs is an online reputation management company that employs 35 dedicated professionals who specialize in online brand management. Status Labs took on Click’s case for free as an opportunity to help someone who was unfairly treated by the media. CEO Darius Fisher has been a steadfast activist and authority on behalf of those who have suffered from unfair media treatment and data privacy breaches and that has been the driving force behind his work with the company.
So far Status Labs and Melissa Click have focused on getting their name via talk show interviews in order to show Click’s side to the story. Obviously the former professor regrets her word choice but she still insists that she be judged by her life’s work rather than a poorly timed statement in the heat of the moment.
The economic crisis of 2008 hit Americans unexpectedly and in many different ways. In New Jersey, the Middlesex County Improvement Authority borrowed $20 million in 2005 on a loan from the Casino Reinvestment Development Authority.
As the result of that loan, the Authority apparently owes almost $7 million in principal and interest reports the Press of Atlantic City.com for the construction of The Heldrich Hotel in New Brunswick, New Jersey. Built in 2007, the New Brunswick development corporation called Devco has been behind for over five years, like many of the loans that were taken out during this period.
DEVCO, the development company that designed the Heidrich, had excellent plans for the beautiful 235-Heidrich. They took a seedy block downtown and turned it into a high-class area with the hotel and conference center. The only problem is that since 2008, it has not drawn a working share of customers to pay for the construction.
Consequently, the loans they took out to build The Heidrich have gone unpaid. Presently, the occupancy rate is 63.5 percent with its primary account a member of the Delco Board of Directors, Johnson & Johnson. They have never consistently held the full house that they intended.
Devco has a unique approach to redevelopment and that explains why this non-profit development company has overseen over $1.6 billion of investments in renovations in the downtown district of New Brunswick.
Devco is no amateur in finding funds for their projects, and they promise the CRDA that they will be paid back, in time. The hotel simply isn’t able to attract the guests that they need, but they will. To date, the $30 million from the bonds that were sold have been repaid, and if the past 45 years of Devco Development are any indication, all loans will be paid in full.
Being behind bars is by design going to take freedom from you. Being able to communicate with the outside world in a safe and regular fashion can be a life saver for those who are imprisoned and their families on the outside of the correctional facility. Securus Technologies have been providing criminal and civil justice technology solutions for many years and as technology has grown, so has their product line. They added an app for Android devices about 6 months ago and it has been downloaded over 60,000 times already.
Securus released an app for the Apple market as well just last week. The initial results are fantastic as there have been over 5,000 downloads in a week. This app allows families to be connected and served by allowing for easy communication between families and friends. Before these new offerings were given by Securus the modes of communication were quite minimal and there was little choice. The company took their knowledge of the security and strictness of communication for the incarcerated and created technology that fit into it. That makes visitations on video and phone calls a much more common occurrence. That is good for morale of prisoners, inmate behavior and safety of staff.
There are thousands of law enforcement officials that rely on the technology provided by Securus Technologies in order to provide reliable solutions to prison technology problems. They have provided solutions that are easy to use and understand making them easy to access. Their technology is second to no one in providing communications from prisons and jail locations across the country. They provide a large range of products that are used and depended on by prison personnel and inmates. In order to keep the world a safer place, technology like this is important. This allows for inmates to search for jobs, find places to live and get their lives organized better from the inside before they are released. That is good for the success rates for prisoners reentering society.
From their corporate headquarters in Dallas, Texas, Securus Technologies provides law enforcement with some of the more valuable tools that they use in keeping the incarceration system running as smoothly as possible. They provide emergency response, incident management, public information and a variety of other services to make the world a safer place to live in. They are so successful that they currently service over 1.2 million inmates from all over the country.
