The Waiakea Water brand was founded in 2012 with the mission of filling a void within the beverage market. Waiakea water is sustainably sourced and naturally enriched with healthy minerals. What’s more, Waiakea is active in providing clean water to disadvantaged communities. Waiakea’s unique mission makes it stand out from the rest of the other bottled water brands on the shelf.
Waiakea water has a pH level of 8.8, which sets it apart from other premium water brands. In every bottle of Waiakea water, there are trace amounts of magnesium, potassium, and calcium. The minerals found in Waiakea water are beneficial to the body in several ways. Magnesium maintains the proper health of nerves, muscles, and bones. Magnesium also assists in the absorption of calcium. Potassium is needed in maintaining the health of the kidneys, brain, and muscles; potassium and magnesium are also the third and fourth most found elements in the body.
For every bottle of water sold, Waiakea gives a week’s worth of water to Pump Aid, a charity based in Malawi and London. Pump Aid is doing more than providing water- they also teach the people they serve how to dig water wells in their area and provide proper sanitation! People can feel good about purchasing Waiakea, knowing that it will benefit them physically and help those who are in desperate need of water. As of 2015, 500 million liters of water have been given through the partnership between Waiakea and Pump Aid.
Over the past five years, Waiakea shipments of water have increased 4000% and the company itself is worth about $10 million! Their water’s source is on the Mauna Lao volcano in Hawaii. Snowmelt and rainwater get filtered through the porous, volcanic rock, and in the process picks up some of those minerals. Instead of complete ownership, Waiakea has been given the right to obtain water on Hawaii for the next ninety-seven years. Once the agreement ends, whoever is in control of the company at that time will need to decide whether or not they want to sign another hundred year lease.

Every industry has bitter rivalries. But few have rivalries more pronounced than that which exists between the prison communication industy’s giants, Securus Technologies and Global Tel Link. For years, the companies have traded jabs back and forth. These have included filing lawsuits and making derogatory claims in the press against each other.
Securus has sustained the vast majority of these assaults. But even despite all of the negative things that its chief competitor at said against it, Securus continues to prove its technologies by implementing them in over 3,500 penal institutions across the United States. One of its most successful technologies has been its video visitation suite. This is proving to be a major hit with both inmates and guards alike, allowing for cheap video visitation calls to and from prisons, saving inmates and their families thousands of dollars per year.
But this technology has also been extremely popular with guards due to its ability to reduce the number of visitations that inmates schedule each year as well as being able to give inmates a sense of hope and a strong incentive to say on their best behavior. Since the implementation of the system in prisons throughout the United States, it has been shown that prisons where the system has been installed have seen dramatic reductions in inmate violations of prison rules as well as a reduction in criminal activity overall. This not only makes guards jobs easier, it also makes the prison environment safer for both staff and inmates. Securus video visitation is not just a mere convenience, it saves lives.
This is just one example of many technologies that Securus is developing in its fight against crime within prisons throughout the United States. It is a company with a proven track record of developing some of the most innovative and effective solutions for prison staff seeking to keep their institutions safe and secure.
