How Nine9 is Helping its Clients Find Success

Nine9 is a modeling and acting agency that helps their clients obtain work in the fashion and acting industries. Nine9 is different than other agencies in a number of ways. The first is that the company is commission free. Nine9 Talent Agency also provides their clients with 24/7 alerts that let clients know when their software has matched them with a casting that is a good fit for them.

Nine9 holds monthly workshops at its various locations where their clients have the opportunity to interact with industry leaders. Nine9 has offices nationwide including in Los Angeles, New York, Chicago, Dallas, San Francisco, Washington D.C., Atlanta, and Miami.

On Nine9’s website, there is a page dedicated to Success Stories that features the work that their clients have found. One of the clients, Steven H, used Nine9 and through them was able to locate local auditions. He was able to land the first few jobs he tried out for and this led to his being featured in a short film as well as co-hosting a television talk show.

Another Success Story was posted by Deborah H. She has been with Nine9 since 2011 and has found a lot of work through them. Among the acting roles she has performed in includes roles on Chicago Fire, Empire, and Chicago PD. She has also appeared in a number of student films, theater shows, and music videos over the last 6 years.

Denise J says that she receives work opportunities every week through Nine9. She has appeared in a Chevron Commercial and got a role in the next Alvin and the Chipmunks movie. Maegan C found work on the set of a new television series, Atlanta Daytime Divas. She said it was a great experience and taught her quite a bit about what it’s like to be on a set.

Securus Gives Law Enforcement Upper Hand With New Tech

The fourth amendment protects the American citizen from unreasonable search and seizure. It essentially allows everybody a certain level of privacy from the government. And the average citizen has a reasonable expectation of privacy when it comes to telephone calls. The government should not be allowed to listen to your telephone calls unless they have reason to believe that you are committing a crime.


This is a vital protection, but it can trip up law enforcement officials during a criminal investigation. Imagine the frustration of being a police officer who knows a particular person committed a crime but cannot prove it with physical evidence. Being able to listen to that suspect’s phone calls would be a major boost to the investigation.


Fortunately for law enforcement officers, incarcerated prisoners have forfeited the fourth amendment protections because of their criminal convictions. This allows a third-party company like Securus Technologies to record all the phone calls going into the prison.


Securus Technologies is a technologies company that provides telephone services to jails. The company also innovates on a weekly basis to come up with new ways to help law enforcement do their jobs. One of their most recent innovations gives law enforcement officials the upper hand in preventing crimes.


Anybody calling into a prison is warned that the telephone calls are recorded. This warning effectively waives the fourth amendment right of the person calling in to the prison. This warning also makes these recorded telephone calls admissible in court.


Eager law enforcement officials can use an innovative software program developed by Securus Technologies to instantly search this entire audio database. The software allows a law enforcement official to lock onto a particular vocal fingerprint. Any phone conversation that a single voice has been involved with will be immediately presented to the law-enforcement official giving that official important information instantly.


Thor Halvorssen Set To Take On North Korean Dictatorship

Thor Halvorssen has been involved in the human rights activism community for a number of years since he fought alongside Amnesty International to help free his own father from illegal imprisonment and torture after his diplomatic role saw him uncover evidence of widespread corruption in Venezuelan law enforcement agencies. Halvorssen believes there is much work around the world that needs to be done to restore human rights to many nations where citizens have lived through decades of tyrannical rule; among global leaders who have faced the wrath of Halvorssen and his Human Rights Foundation co-workers the North Korean dictatorship has been the focus of much of the work of Thor Halvorssen.

Not only has Thor Halvorssen worked with Silicon Valley experts and North Korean defectors to develop the “Hack North Korea” campaign that takes information across the closed borders of the socialist nation, but he has also given time at the Oslo Freedom Forum to political dissidents from the nation to publicize the issues faced in the country. Halvorssen made sure the Oslo freedom Forum was the site for a meeting between Jimmy Wales of Wikipedia and groups of North Korean defectors who came together to create digital information to be smuggled into the country.

Halvorssen points to the fact the people of North Korea have lived under the dictatorship of members of the Kim family for over 70 years and many have no knowledge of what a truly free life entails as reason for his battle to end the rule of the socialist government of the nation. The North Korean regime has been accused of many abuses by Thor Halvorssen, including operating brutal prison camps that are open to prisoners committing what Halvorssen sees as ridiculous crimes; Thor Halvorssen reveals the people of North Korea rarely have enough to eat and live in fear of a further famine striking the nation as it did in the 1990s when over three million people died.

Treat everyone with respect and listen to them. They will respect you as a leader and want to work harder for you if you also have their wellbeing in mind.

Yanni Hufnagel May Be the Coach to Watch

He might not look like it at first glance, but Yanni Hufnagel may be one of the brightest minds in basketball today. Although he was cut from his high school basketball team, his fall back gig revealed his true appreciation for the sport. Calling games for his home town’s public-access station, he earned the respect of his broadcast partner who said about Hufnagel, “He was so far ahead for someone our age in terms of analyzing basketball. You knew he’d be either doing this for a living or he’d be a coach one day.” After his stint as a commentator, Yanni worked his way up the ladder. He worked as a basketball manager and took internships with the New Jersey Nets. From there, he landed a job under Oklahoma basketball Coach Jeff Capel, who after two years referred him to Harvard head Coach Tommy Amaker. After Harvard was Vanderbilt, UC Berkeley, and finally (for the time being) the University of Nevada, Reno.


Throughout his career, Yanni Hufnagel has had the opportunity to work with some of the best coaches and young athletes in the world, and he made an impression on all of them. This includes such household names as Jeremy Lin (Houston Rockets guard) and Blake Griffin (number one NBA draft pick), whose older brother, Taylor, called Hufnagel, “probably the most genuine, hardworking guy I’ve ever been around in basketball.” With such a stellar record and reputation, it seems the sky is the limit for this young coach. So keep your eye on Yanni Hufnagel. He may be the coach to watch.

Meet Dr. Avi Weisfogel, founder of Dental Sleep Masters

Dr. Avi Weisfogel has spent decades in the dental field. During that time, he’s built his private practice into one of the leading dental offices in Central New Jersey. He’s also undertaken a number of other business and charitable pursuits. Yet his most enduring accomplishment is certainly having founded Dental Sleep Masters.

A new paradigm in the treatment of sleep apnea

Dental Sleep Masters is a company dedicated to training dentists in the treatment and diagnosis of sleep apnea. The innovative, scientific approach that’s taught through its courses and seminars is slowly changing the way that both dentistry and sleep medicine are practiced within the United States.

The idea behind Dental Sleep Masters came to Weisfogel while he was working on an unrelated research project. He became aware of data indicating that many patients were more likely, over a given period of time, to see their dentists than they were to see their primary care physicians. Weisfogel attributed this to the unavoidable nature of dental problems. While it may be possible to indefinitely delay that yearly physical, delaying an abscessed third molar, even for a single day, is wildly beyond the pain threshold of most people. Thus, many patients come to see their dentists due to the urgent nature and elevated frequency of most dental problems.

Avi Weisfogel began focusing on sleep apnea. The disease is strongly correlated with almost every major killer in the U.S. Heart disease, stroke, diabetes and even some types of cancer have been shown to be related to sleep apnea. What’s worse, over 90 percent of those who suffer from the disease don’t even know they have it.

Through a novel program of seminars, Dental Sleep Masters has been training dentists to overcome the stark realities surrounding this deadly disease. Through the courses of Dental Sleep Masters, dentists from across the country have been able to integrate sleep medicine into their dental practices. Indeed, many have been so successful with implementing sleep medicine that they have stopped practicing traditional dentistry completely.

Through these efforts, Dr. Weisfogel has transformed the way that both dentistry and sleep medicine are practiced in the United States.
