PSI Pay Slowly Pushes the Potential of Contactless Payments Into The Future

The transition from physical currency to digital supported monetary transactions is underway thanks to technologies that PSI Pay has supported in recent years. According to statistics out the United Kingdom, more than fifty percent of citizens have decided to make the majority of their purchases with credit cards or digital wallets. This suggests that the need for physical paper currency is on a downward spiral, that could eventually lead to the total retirement of its use.

 

Technologies are starting to allow for secure contactless transactions to take place without the need for a confirming party. For example, it’s like walking into the bank and depositing money without speaking to a bank-teller. The new process of contactless payments eliminates any indirect parties for interacting with the transaction, which really is remarkable considering that just over a few decades ago a majority of people did not even own a mobile phone.

 

PSI Pay is leading the way in terms of allowing this slow transition to take place, and do not be fooled, this will be a slow process, but eventually as time passes and technologies are integrated into modern monetary tracking systems, there will likely be a day in the not so distant future that will allow for completely contactless transactions, and it should come to no surprise if PSI Pay has a significant hand in how that all evolves and plays out.

 

PSI Pay has believed that contactless payments are an inevitable guarantee of the future, and that is imperative to embrace the technology rather than fear away from it. There are still things that need to be polished and perfected before it becomes a completely integrated system with all banking solutions, but slow steps will guide the world towards the future of contactless payments.

Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff Released by Atria Books

Satire, oxymoron’s and twisted metaphors, according to the author, Sean Penn, it is up to one’s perspective how they interpret the book. The book “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” was published on March 28, 2018, released by Atria Books, which is an imprint of Simon & Schuster. The author, Sean Penn, is a renowned actor, not a writer; though, in a bid to promote the book, he claimed he’s just about ready to quit the big screen to take a peek of what life is behind the scenes. Not only has the book received mixed reactions; even the author himself has come under more severe scrutiny.

The book has no straightforward plot, it the story of “Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff” who once upon a time sold septic trucks and portrayed as a government assassin, who only targets mainly the elderly, and this is after being convinced that they (old people) drain the resources that would otherwise be used elsewhere. Bob Who Just Do Stuff is divorced and has a tough time connecting with his neighbors on Woodview, California. His ex-wife gets married to the divorce attorney and is happily driving around town in an ice-cream truck. To try to repair the relations with his community, Bob Honey invites his neighbors to a barbecue.

 

It is only after an incessant journalist starts asking hard questions that Bob, begins to make changes in his life. This is after surviving numerous assassination attempts from his secretive bosses and a media that does not know or ignores personal boundaries. Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff, pens a message to a specific “Mr. Landlord” in which he claims that theirs is a nation that needed an assassin. He describes the landlord as “the violently immature seventy-year-old boy-man with money and French vanilla cotton candy hair.”

The main character, Bob Honey Who Just Do Stuff is described as having various vocations such as sewage specialist, Jehovah’s Witness, a government operative, an assassin. The 56-year-old protagonist is said to have highly great skepticism about consumerism and mediocrity of modern society.

The novel was first released as a free Audible book, with Pappy Pariah (the narrator in the story), as the author. At first Sean, Penn insisted that the book was written a guy he met in a bar in Key West, Florida, by the same name. However, it turned out that the name was a pseudonym for Sean Penn. But, BBC News wrapped it up best when they said, “Critics were keen to pick up on Mr. Landlord, a character that could be a thinly veiled dig at Donald Trump.”

NGP VAN, The Leading Campaigning Software, Changes Tech – Here’s How

NGP VAN – the official name of NGP Voter Access Network – is the leading voter database of progressive and Democratic political campaigns across the United States of America. The company’s high-tech software is both easy to use for beginners and experienced political candidates; Barack Obama is arguably the most experienced, most popular Democratic candidates to have used NGP VAN – he used it in 2008 for his initial election into the Oval Office and for his re-election as the United States President over Republican foe Mitt Romney.

 

The aforementioned political software company was formed as a merger between NGP Software, founded by Nathaniel Pearlman in 1997, and Voter Activation Network, created four years after NGP Software by Mark Sullivan. Mr. Pearlman eventually became the chief technology officer of Hillary Clinton’s run at being elected to the coveted spot of United States President. Without the resounding success of the merger of NGP Software and Voter Activation Network into NGP VAN, Nathaniel Pearlman unarguably wouldn’t have worked his way into an executive role in the information technology wing of the second-place campaign in the 2016 United States presidential election.

 

NGP VAN provides its users with many things, though one of its most sought-after capabilities is adding a healthy dose of figurative concentrated lighter fluid to the initial stages of Democratic, progressive, and even independent political candidates’ campaigns, in turn effectively allowing them to grow significantly faster than their competitors’ campaigns.

 

The technology that NGP VAN brings to the proverbial table advanced them into the future of politics. Rather than having to cut turf – sending groups of political campaign staffers to the properties of potential voters in areas that such candidates will be representing given they are elected by those constituents – or poll people in local or regional areas to gauge the opinions of constituents, NGP VAN taps into social media platforms and news media outlets to see what people are saying regarding particular political campaigns, candidates that such campaigns represent, and hot-button political topics so that people using NGP VAN are better able to make the right moves in conveying their interests to constituents so they turn off fewer potential voters, gain the support of more relevant voting constituents, and ultimately align the goals of their political campaigns with what they say, write, and otherwise portray.

 

Without NGP VAN, thousands of Democrats and progressives wouldn’t have won their posts.

Anil Chaturvedi and The Banking Expert Reputation He Has Gained All Throughout His Career

Hinduja Bank Switzerland is not only a trusted bank for any business transaction between Asia and Europe, but it’s also an excellent source of reliable information. Under the leadership of Anil Chaturvedi, the Managing Director of the bank’s Private Banking department, we can confirm a series of relevant business news from Hinduja Bank’s official website.

One of these news is about Bajaj Finance, which just reported a net profit of about Rs 746 Mn at its third-quarter report. We also can source a lot of confirmed reports about the performance of state-run Indian Oil Corp from the official newsletter for Hinduja Bank. It is also revealed on their website that Tata Group is now overseeing efforts of expansion across its ventures in Aerospace programs. Its Aerospace Special Economic Zone project is one of its most exciting efforts to improve the landscape of the business environment in both Asia and Europe. As glue to all of these news, we might say here that all these projects are also the concerns of Mr. Anil Chaturvedi.

Being the Private Banking head of the firm, it is the foremost duty of Mr. Anil to make sure that he sustains the success, reputation and wonderful brand image that the bank currently enjoys. This won’t be that much of an arduous task for him to do because of his previous work experience. As you may have already known, Mr. Anil was once the Branch Manager of a bank that’s funded by the state. This bank is the State Bank of India, and his banking experience in the firm had molded him to be the best in his league.

There may be innumerable reasons why Mr. Anil is seen as a reliable source of banking advice today, but it could mostly be because of his impressive formal knowledge on banking. It is most certainly a source of his expert reputation to be a Master Graduate from Delhi School of Economics at the Delhi University. His B.A. degree in Economics from Meerut University is also an impressive buffer and support for his credentials to be as robust as it is right now.

Robert Ivy: Receiving an Award for Being a Competitive Architect

Robert Ivy recently received recognition from the Mississippi Institute of Arts and Letters. He was the recipient of this year’s Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Award; a prestigious honor that is given only to artists that have contributed so much to the field of arts. Being an architect, it is normal that the profession is also correlated to arts, because of the nature of the profession. The architect thanked the institution for giving him the recognition, and he was also flattered to know that he is the only architect that received the award ever since it was introduced years ago. Along with Robert Ivy, several artists from different fields have also received their Noel Polk Lifetime Achievement Award in the recent years, including the actor Morgan Freeman, artist Walter Anderson, singer Leontyne Price, and writers Eudora Welty and Shelby Foote.

Robert Ivy serves as the current chief executive officer and the executive vice president of one of the oldest professional organizations in the country – the American Institute of Architects. The organization was founded by 13 architects in the 19th century after they discovered that the profession is being used by the majority of immigrants coming into the United States to find a better career opportunity. These migrants are faking their documents, stating that they are professional architects, even if they lack the skill. It tarnishes the reputation of architects, and because of the continued abuse, the professionals have introduced their laws and bylaws and apprehended those who are claiming to be architects when they are not.

The American Institute of Architects continued to become well-known all over the country, and their memberships continued to rise. The leadership of the organization also changed from time to time, but they only allow the deserving members to serve as the organization’s leader. Robert Ivy was nominated to the post after the leader of the American Institute of Architects decided to retire in 2011. The organization’s senior officers thought that he indeed deserved to become the next leader of the American Institute of Architects because of his contributions to the organization and his impressive educational background.

As one of his platforms, Robert Ivy continues to spread positive information about the architects who are performing their jobs within the United States. He is also explaining to the public why architects are essential and how they are shaping the society. He is also in charge of reviewing all of the complaints filed against the members of the organization, and if proven guilty, the American Institute of Architects could take the professional license away from its owners.

From Corner Butcher Shop To World Food Icon, OSI Industries Has A Truly Inspiring Story:

OSI Industries ranks as one of the worlds top food wholesalers. The company boasts an employment roster of over twenty-thousand and has operations in seventeen different countries worldwide. Even with this massive global reach that the company enjoys today, OSI Industries is still continuing to grow its brand and expand its reach.

The story of OSI Industries is a good metaphor for the way that the United States was built in general. The company was founded by a Germany immigrant family in 1909 and was originally nothing more than a local butcher shop. By the time that World War One had ended, the Kowschowsky family built on their success and moved into the wholesale industry. 1928 saw the rebranding of the company under the name Otto & Son.

The next few decades saw a slow and steady growth for the business but it didn’t start to really expand on a large scale until the company reached a deal in 1955 to supply the growing fast-food chain McDonald’s Restaurants with ground beef patties. By this time, Otto Kolschowsky’s sons Arthur and Harry were in charge of the family business and they established a business relationship with McDonald’s that continues to this day. The interesting thing that happened next was that as McDonald’s grew, so did OSI Industries. The growth was welcome but was also in response to trying to keep up with McDonald’s. This need to grow along with McDonald’s was so pronounced that in 1973, the company opened a processing facility that was solely devoted to producing food for McDonald’s.

The 1970s also saw the arrival of another key figure in the OSI story – Sheldon Lavin. Sheldon was a financial advisor who worked with Arthur and Harry in financing expansion plans and he made such an impression that the brothers brought him into the partnership. 1975 saw another rebranding, the one that still identifies the company today – OSI Industries. Eventually, Sheldon Lavin came to have sole control over the company as the brothers retired on after another. He continues today as OSI’s Chief Executive Officer and Chairman of the Board.

Sheldon Lavin led a massive expansion campaign with OSI that included taking the brand international. The company by this time was already established across North America and Sheldon wanted to make it into a global enterprise. Along with the help of current OSI President David McDonald who joined in 1987, this mission was accomplished. Sheldon Lavin even won the prestigious Global Visionary Award in 2016 in recognition of his achievement of building OSI into the world leader that it is today.
