Jim Larkin Becomes An Activism Hero In Ireland

The Irish workers of the modern day can look back at the campaigns of the socialist leader, Jim Larkin as the basis for the rights the majority of us take for granted across the developed world.

Larkin himself was largely removed from history by a group of newspaper barons who turned against him following his greatest accomplishment, the 1913 Dublin Lockout which saw more than 100,000 workers strike as part of an initiative created by Larkin through his own Irish Transport and General Workers Union.

Jim Larkin had arrived in Dublin in 1907 after his techniques of striking and agitating for the rights of dock workers in his home city of Liverpool had proven unfavorable to union leaders.

Larkin would quickly form the ITGWU and despite his reputation as a political activist and agitator, he was often willing to work alongside business owners to ensure the employment options of the majority of Irish workers remained available despite strikes and political activities.

A good example of this willingness to compromise is seen in the fact Larkin refused to use violence to intimidate those breaking picket lines as he understood the need for business to continue to keep jobs open for the future. Read more: Jim Larkin | Biography and Jim Larkin | Wikipedia

In 1912, Larkin played a pivotal role in the development of the Irish Labour Party and has been credited with bringing about a political change in the country with workers rights finally recognized.

Larkin would later find himself struggling to find a political voice after an ill-judged move to the U.S. which saw him arrested and deported back to Dublin in 1920; by the time of his return to Ireland after six years in the U.S., Larkin would find himself a political outcast who had been replaced by those he inspired with his strong lead early in the 20th-century.

Eventually, Jim Larkin would make his way back into the fold of the trade union movement and Irish Labour Party before being injured in a fall while repairing a union-owned community hall in 1947.

From the mid-20th-century onwards, Jim Larkin has seen his contribution to socialism and the unions reassessed in a more favorable light by modern scholars.

US Money Reserve Inc Explains Inflation And How It Effects You

US Money Reserve Inc, lead by former US Mint director Philip N. Diehl has built a strong reputation in the investment industry by serving over 400,000 very happy investment clients in just over 10 years. They are indeed the only gold and coin company in the world to have a former mint director as their president who brings with him great knowledge and a vast range of experience in precious metals.



The huge distributor of U.S. government issued coins recently published an article about inflation, how it affects the current market and most importantly how it affects you. The article discusses the dangers of growing inflation and how you can protect your own financial interest from inflation.


Let’s take a look at what inflation is. For economists, bankers, financial advisors, etc… it is an economic indicator of great value. It tells the professionals how rapidly the consumer prices are changing and it has an impact on virtually everything connected to money. It comes down to increases in pricing over a specific period of time, most commonly measured and determined by the Consumer Price Index also referred to as the CPI.


By tracking consumer purchases and reporting on price changes during a certain time frame they can measure the percentage of increases taking place (or decreases) and compare those prices to those services and/or products from the year prior. So when the prices have increased a certain percentage that that is how much more the same items are costing us today versus a year ago and would be the figure to determine the inflation increase.


Of course as inflation rises purchasing power decreases and the value of money becomes undermined. However when the opposite takes place and prices dramatically drop that can restrict spending that could create a recession brought on by deflation.


Inflation has several dangerous and direct effects on you as a consumer and earner. It can weaken your buying power, your money will not go as far as it once did and you will be spending more money for the same things. You will also have less cash after spending on bills and necessities also resulting in a smaller amount of money to save and/or invest.


You can also expect your retirement to be affected. If inflation is on the rise continuously then when you do retire or if you are already retired the same things you are purchasing and paying for today will be even more in the future. If you have a fixed income during your retirement years you will be on the losing end of inflation. Plus interest rates tend to rise during increased inflation periods to encourage less spending.

Securus Technologies Inc. is a telecommunications company based in Dallas, TX having Rick Smith as its CEO as from 2008. Previously, however, he worked with Global Crossing for about 26 years and Echelon, afterward before he joined Securus. He holds both a bachelor’s degree and masters in engineering. His education record, coupled with the years of experience he has had, could perhaps explain how he has been able to run Securus smoothly over the years.


Through the leadership of Rick Smith, Securus has made great strides towards ensuring safekeeping of the citizens and also those in incarceration. This has, as a result, seen many organizations such as those of public safety and correctional facilities turn to SECURUS to help with their technological needs. Some of these needs include finding means of ensuring that those imprisoned can keep in touch with their families. This is made possible through a video call. Besides that, assisting the correctional facilities to acquire crucial information is also what they do. Furthermore, there are many applications that have been crafted to cover a wide array of aspects including both academic and recreational.


Resultantly, to make even more advances and help cater for more efficient services, Rick Smith and his team took to buying JPay as its subsidiary company. However, though JPay is under Securus, its previous managed and system of working has been retained.


All that Securus has done has generated a lot of positive feedback from the public who channel their comments through emails. In response to this, Rick Smith affirmed that indeed the goal of SECURUS has been to ensure that people, wherever they were, felt that they were safe and they as a company are delighted to be of service to the community.


Most definitely Rick Smith has propelled significant changes in the telecommunications field. Currently, Securus offers service and product development ideas at least weekly to the public safety and correctional facilities organizations.


We are safe and secure under SECURUS.
