Former Corrections Officer Helps in Disconnecting Inmates’ Cell Phones

Robert Johnson has been narrating his story for the last seven years to anybody who pays attention. It is his motivation of going on with his mission to keep cell phones out of inmates’ reach. Mr. Johnson believes that the whole community is in danger when inmates get access to cell phones.


Robert Johnson’s Story


In 2010, Robert Johnson, a native of Delray Beach, used to work at the Lee Correctional Institution based in South Carolina. He had worked in the corrections department for fifteen years and was charged with the duty of confiscating contraband. Mr. Johnson was so good at his job that it nearly cost him his life. He vividly recalls that two weeks before his shooting incident, they had managed to intercept a large package, valued at $50,000. On March 5, 2010 in the morning at around 5:30 a.m., he was attacked at home. He distracted the intruder towards his hallway in order to save his sleeping wife. He struggled with the attacker but he got the better of him and pushed him backwards. He then shot him six times in his stomach and chest. He was quickly rushed to hospital where the doctors thought he would not make it and when he did they called it a miracle. A suspect was arrested and charged with the attempt on his life. The hit was planned using a contraband phone.


Robert Johnson’s Mission


Despite having 23 surgeries in seven years and being in pain constantly, he has not slowed in his mission. He aims to prevent crimes perpetrated by inmates using contraband phones. He recently addressed this issue to the Federal Communications Commission. The FCC cannot jam the signals in correctional facilities due to an existing legislation. Different states are therefore looking at other technology-driven ways to sort this issue. Mr. Johnson is now a consultant for Securus Technologies, which uses a Wireless Containment System to bar inmates’ calls.


Securus’ Wireless Containment Solutions


Securus Technologies has the only tested, proven and accepted contraband interdiction technology that has been effective in a prison environment. This technology has allowed Securus to detect and prevent more than 1.7 million unlawful communication efforts from a total of eight correctional facilities in the U.S. Recently, a video recorded by an inmate brandishing a knife at Evans Correctional Institution made rounds on the internet to the nation’s shock and dismay. Securus’ Wireless Containment Solutions aims at detecting and preventing incidents such as these and others similar to it. The new technology has received a lot of accolades as many people view it as an effective way of keeping the public safe. Rick Smith, the CEO of Securus revealed that the company had invested more than $40 million and counting in the new technology and will continue doing so to make it the most effective means of keeping contraband cellphones away from inmates.

SahmAdrangi Is Able To Handle The Dodgy Dealers

SahmAdrangi is known for his calm demeanor. But this is in sharp contrast to the controlled aggression displayed by Kerrisdale Capital Management. Mr. SahmAdrangi is just 33 years old. Still, he has managed to remove several foreign companies which were corrupt, from the New York stock exchanges. All this has helped him to earn large investment returns. He has managed to achieve this in just three short years.

Mr. Adrangi was born in Canada. His hedge fund, namely, Kerrisdale Capital Management, was just a $US1 million start-up. Under his able leadership, it is a $US200 million investment house today. It has managed to take hedge fund activism into the realms of social media too. His strategy is to seek profit by uncovering corporate fraud. This strategy has delivered returns for another hedge fund. This is an Australian hedge fund, namely, Bronte Capital. It is led by John Hampton. He is an inspiration for Mr. SahmAdrangi.

Mr. Adrangi started his career in June 2010 as a hedge fund investor with the alias He was looking at the murkiness in Chinese reverse mergers. This was the way for companies to enter the North American bourses un-vetted. They were managing it by rolling into entities that were already listed. He soon realized that all these companies were scams. He could make money out of them only by exposing them. While exposing these Chinese companies, he kept his profile anonymous.

He had to make himself visible publicly when BusinessWeek, along with activist investors like Carson Block and Hempton started disclosing Chinese frauds. Then he decided to start publishing under the name, Kerrisdale Capital Management. He feels safer today as many others are involved too in this exposure. He had started his hedge fund with less than $US1 million. This had mainly been raised from family, friends, and supporters. All of them wanted to exploit this folly of investors who wanted to buy Chinese companies. The major event was the spectacular raid made by Kerrisdale Capital Management on Chinese Education Alliance (CEU). This was an online education business. It had its headquarters in Harbin, China.

Goettl Air Conditioning Thrills Customers in Many Areas

For several generations Goettl Air Conditioning has served the desert Southwest with its excellent service and fair pricing. The company was founded in 1932 by Goettl brothers Adam and Gust. The company was the first to introduce the evaporative cooling system and refrigerated air conditioning to the hot and arid regions around Phoenix, Tucson and Las Vegas.

For years Goettl had been at the top of the food chain in regards to customer satisfaction, profits, and employee morale. Then in the nineties, things changed. Goettl had been owned and operated by a large national management company and many of the fine details that made a good company better were lost in that equation. Profits were down, customers were unhappy and things were just not going well.

Then in 2013 Ken Goodrich purchased Goettl. Goodrich had been raised in a family where his father was in the air conditioning business and he knew what had to be done. Goodrich had spent his entire business career resurrecting failing companies and bringing them back into profitability.

However, Goettl was a special situation as there had been some legal issues where there had been questionable business practices and a lawsuit had followed. Consumer confidence in the company was way down as well. Goodrich launched a campaign to bring up expectations in both the customer and employee areas, and he instituted a 100 percent satisfaction guarantee on everything in the way of sales, service and customer relations.

According to PR News Wire, today morale is way up from the customer and employee aspect and the company is very profitable again, bringing in over $50 million of revenue annually. Goettl got very involved in the communities in which the company serves as evidenced by the 50,000 cases of water donated to the homeless in Phoenix during a recent hot summer.

Goodrich didn’t stop there, however. As noted in a recent article in BizJournals, Goodrich acquires Walton’s Heating and Air in Southern California. Walton’s had always been a major player in the commercial HVAC part of the business while Goettl had been concentrating mostly in the residential areas. The two companies joining together just made a lot of sense. For more details visit Crunchbase.

Todd Longbrake, former owner of the family held company stated that he had grown Walton’s to just about the maximum that could be done on his own, and that the company had become stagnant in the process. Now, since the Goettl acquisition, the Southern California branch has expanded tenfold.
