NGP VAN: Not only helping, but on your side every step of the way

In 2008, something big happened. Not only was it a presidential election year, but we elected the first African American president. This marked change in the American society. A long time ago, there was slavery on our land. People thought that black people weren’t as equal to the white man, and thus, treating them like animals.

A Black man in the oval office shows how far we progressed. We went from owning people to owning our freedom.

Barack Obama didn’t do it on his own. He had a ton of help. Form volunteers, to multiple organizations.

One of them is called NGP VAN.

According to their website, they say, “NGP VAN is the leading technology provider to Democratic and progressive campaigns and organizations, offering clients an integrated platform of the best fundraising, compliance, field, organizing, digital, and social networking products.”

They have helped many Democratic candidates be elected into office, such as Senator Elizabeth Warren, to even President Barack Obama.

On their Facebook page, they are very active. But they posted a video that shows pride.

The video is titled “Powering Progress in 2017”, and it shows their true positional.

It starts off by telling us that we have had a big year. We have had the women’s march, and many protests to defend our freedom. It has been a huge year, not just a big.

We turned that energy into politics and turned it into votes. We had republicans scared and almost won.

Because of one thing that they say.

We never gave up and kept going for the next day.

We kept fighting. We organized organizations, we recruited volunteers, and we turned people to get involved who have never done so.

NGP VAN has been there all along, helping the way for the simplest organization. They help Democrats get into office, and help them change America.

If you want to make a change, you need to be the change.

“Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” and a dark take on American politics

This March, Sean Penn released his new book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” and he sat down with Trevor Noah and Vogue Magazine to discuss the book. Penn told Noah that the book basically wants to look at the “dark side of human nature” in which humans can easily find an interesting fascination to fascism. In the interviews, Penn talks about his anger towards certain American policies and this seems to reflect in the book. The main character is Bob Honey, an angry American, who has a side job of killing older Americans with a hatchet. He feels that the people he kills are standing in the way of progress and change.

Penn told Vogue that the books draws parallels to the #METOO movement, and this seems clear when the reader sees Bob witness current events. For example, Bob talks of seeing the 2016 Presidential election, and later on in the book he even writes an angry letter to the elected president of the U.S., telling him that he is not fit for public office. The similarities in this part are clear. Penn tells Noah that the book is meant to talk about peoples feeling of a need to serve their country and to help the country, even if their purpose or direction is misguided. This seems to be the reason as to why Bob is killing seniors, in the name of “progress.”

Aside from these issues in the book, Penn gives a background to reasons as to why he wrote the book. He talks about his anger towards president Trump’s actions and talk towards Haiti. He also brings up his close friendship with the late Hugo Chavez, and how he feels that democracy is not always the best in the world. He ends up by bringing up his interview with el Chapo and how he doesn’t support the war on drugs.

PSI Pay Offering The ‘Ring’ Deal In Cashless Payment

Lines in banks are becoming smaller in each passing day thanks to the introduction of a paperless system of payment but this also being phased out. The introduction of wearables as a mode of payment has seen the plastic money also phasing out. PSI has also joined this bandwagon with the help of Kerv by introducing the Kerv Payment Ring. This will be a ring that will enable the users to pay seamlessly without revealing their bank details. There will be no use of a PIN or sign anything. How does this Kiev Wearable Contactless Ring compare to the current plastic money?

This is a question that most people that are a bit anxious to join the payment are asking. A research contacted a while back shows that most people are carrying less cash and need a system that is hustle free. Secondly, the ring reduces the long line in the bank and reduces the security concern that many users doing banking using plastic money have. Processing challenges is also a major concern for companies like RBS, NatWest, and TSB facing such challenges. However, the main concern on the PSI-pay supported Kerv wearables is accessibility, convenience and security problems.

The rig offers the solution to this concerns. First, it is widely accepted by over 38 million places and individuals globally, with a low transaction of only £30 which lowers risk of theft. Secondly, the card is also acceptable in different places where goods and services can be paid for. Thirdly, it is linked with other forms of payment making it more accessible. Lastly, it regulated by the FCA regulations which should calm down the fears that some might have.

The company at the center of all this is the PSI pay is an online payment service company regulated by FCA. It is authorized by FCA under European Union electronic money regulations of 2011 for the issuing of electronic money. It has partnered with other companies and business around the world to make their company the best in the world. Truly, with the strict protocol employed by different institutions, maybe biometric is the next step in verification but for now, the furthest we have gone is what PSI Pay is providing.
