In the correspondence, Buffett stated he wagered $1 million to a charity and expects a higher investment turn compared to hedge fund management groups. He invested into a S&P 500 passive index fund and simple long-term investments while keeping cost low. Armour is supportive of his long term investing strategy and acknowledges his decades of experience in the investment management industry. He gives insight and facts on index funds and says a group of fund managers have outpaced benchmark indexes consistently.
Tim Armour said, in the February 27th commentary that Warren Buffett proves his investment strategy is efficient and works for him. Only time will reveal if his $1 charity wager will be successful. They both share similar opinions on mutual funds and its high management costs and low returns. Armour provides his perspective and experience on passive index investments, noting its volatility risks and overall cost. He believes what should be considered is delivering long-term investment returns and low cost.

It’s coming out. The veil is being lifted on the philanthropic work of Dick Devos, husband of Secretary of Education Betsy Devos. It’s being revealed that they gave one hundred and thirty nine million dollars to charity. So we’re now getting an inside look into what this is all about.
In the year 2015 alone, both Betsy and Dick Devos donated over eleven million dollars to charity, according to a new report on their website that is associated with their family foundation. This is more than double of all the political contributions she gave not over one year, but over half a decade. Dick Devos’ father, Rich Devos, was the founder of Amway and is also known as a great philanthropist. In fact, Rich and his four children, including Dick, all together gave over one hundred and four million dollars to charity in the year 2015 alone, making them gain a high spot on the Forbes list of the Top Givers. All together over their lifetimes, they gave over one and a third billion dollars to charity, which is around a quarter of their estimated fortune.
Why do they give so much charity? It shows their dedication to causes such as education. In fact, in 2015, three million dollars went to charities that help promote education. This is around a quarter of all their charitable donations. Dick Devos said that shows how much he and Betsy care about the education system in our country. There are many issues that need to be fixed, which is why he and she are so dedicated to fixing it, so that all children can get a good education. Instead of a one size fits all public school system, which does not in fact work, because one size does not fit all, they help promote school choice, so that children can attend schools where they are comfortable and where they will truly succeed. It also helps parents send their children to schools where the parents feel the children will flourish best.
Most of the education beneficiaries were in Michigan, the home states of Betsy and Dick DeVos. In 2013, Compass College of Cinematic Arts in Grand Rapids got fifty thousand dollars. The Ferris State University in Big Rapids got one hundred thousand dollars. Northwood University in Midland got two hundred thousand dollars. West Michigan Aviation Academy got three hundred and fifteen thousand dollars. There were many other education institutions that got dozens of thousands of dollars.

Securus Technologies is a leading provider of inmate services in the United States. The company offers other services such as information management, government information management, biometric analysis, communication and tracking services. The company has grown extensively in other areas of the world but has its headquarters in Atlanta Georgia. Securus Technologies avails its services to approximately more than 2,600 correction facilities in close to 45 states. In April 2015, the company announced that it had signed to an agreement to acquire JPay. The acquisition has seen Securus become one of the fastest growing company in the correction facilities. The company also received an accreditation from Better Business Bureau.
According to recent press release information, Securus Technologies has strived to expose misconducts of its competitor company GTL. GTL discreetly and intentionally tampered with telephones, the act saw an increase in call rates and callers paying more than the required amount. The act is a gross misconduct and totally inexcusable. The company further inflated its charges by increasing the calling rates above standard rates required by the law. The above information is attested by the fact that the firm made more than one million in profits through the illegal practices.
I find that the illegal practices by GTL shows nothing but greed, fraud, and corruption within the company. GTL has participated in various misconducts by trying to get back to other businesses and releasing wrong information. The company has now gone to limelight again after overcharging its customers by extreme amounts. Apart from the charging people of their cash, the company is milking people of their money. People that make calls in the correction facility are guys like you and me that want to get to talk with their friends and family. All we can say about the process that it is shameful of the kind of misconduct experienced.
