PSI Pay Explains How Digital Wallets Vary Between The United States And Europe

Digital wallets allow people to make payments without using their physical debit or credit cards. They can also store loyalty card numbers for convenience. They can replace a leather wallet for many purposes. PSI Pay, a UK fintech company, explains that how people use digital wallets differs between Europe and the United States.

In Europe, people hold cash balances on their digital wallets. Most people keep this balance low as they don’t earn interest and is not insured by the government like a bank account balance is. People can pay for products and services with their digital wallets or they can use them to withdraw money from ATMs. The team at PSI Pay says that an increasing number of people are now using their digital wallets in Europe to exchange money they have in cryptocurrencies to government-backed currency that they can use to pay for things at places like a restaurant.

In the United States, a digital wallet doesn’t hold any money. Instead, it is used as a way to access debit and credit cards in a convenient fashion. PSI Pay says that merchants can’t access a person’s personal info when they use a digital wallet to pay for something and any charge-backs are handled by that consumer’s bank rather than by the digital wallet provider. To pay for things people just input their card numbers into the app and this links their accounts to their digital wallet. When they pay for something they just choose which card to use in the app.

To make things even more convenient in Europe, PSI Pay teamed up with Kerv. Kerv created a device using a Kickstarter campaign which is slid onto a person’s wrist. They just wave the device near a sensor at retail and service provider locations who accept payment in this way. PSI Pay says that more and more locations are installing these sensors because of how convenient and secure the whole system is. Kerv hit their Kickstarter target in October 2015 and have received a number of industry awards. They partnered with PSI Pay In June 2016.

The Prostate Way of Dr. David Samadi

Dr. David Samadi reports that Mitt Romney underwent surgery last summer for prostate cancer. It was successfully performed at the UC Irvine Hospital in California by Dr. Thomas Aherling. Prostate cancer is on the increase with about 161,360 reported cases last year and studies that estimate there will be about 164,690 confirmed cases this year. Most of the time prostate cancer will occur in men over 40, with the vast majority being in men over the age of 65. Over the years other politicians have been among those diagnosed, men like Colin Powell and John Kerry.

Chairman of Urology and Chief of Robotic Surgery at Lenox Hill Hospital, Samadi is a board-certified urologic oncologist. He is the leading surgeon in the U.S. for open surgical procedures related to prostate cancer. Prostate cancer is the second leading cause of death among men, and it is Samadi’s life goal to make people aware of that. He is winning national and international awards in that area of medicine. He has been named to the Castle Connoly America’s Top Doctors and to the New York Magazine’s Best Doctor’s List.

He has performed many thousands of prostate cancer surgeries throughout the years with around 90 percent ending up completely cancer free. In addition to his award-winning prostate cancer work, he has also invented and pioneered several surgical robotics treatments. Samadi was born and raised in Iran. In 1979 when he was 15, Samadi and his little brother fled Iran during the Iranian Revolution. The first place they stopped was Belgium. They eventually settled in the U.S., where David studied to be a doctor at the Stony School of Medicine.

After graduating from here, he earned his M.D. at the S.U.N.Y. Stony Brook School of Medicine in 1994. After seven more years of intense study in very prestigious programs in oncology and proctology, David married Iranian Sahar Danielpour. Today the two have two children and reside in Old Westbury, New York. Girded with a wonderful family and amazing career, Samadi is understandably very optimistic about the future. Only time will tell what great things that will bring to his doorstep.

Bruno Fagali loves to write about law and share his views on his blog from time to time. In one of the recent articles, Bruno Fagali wrote about the latest rule implemented in Brazil, where it is necessary for all the publications to mention “retouched photograph” near the pictures of the models whose photos have been digitally modified. It is because many girls are getting influenced by these images of models and want to copy same body shape and size, which at times is causing significant health complications, and in some cases even death. There is a rise in the cases of anorexia, and it is necessary for the people to realize that what they see in print and digital media is not always right.

Bruno Fagali says that such laws regarding photoshopped model pictures have already been implemented in Brazil long back. He says that it is necessary for the readers and viewers to know that what they are watching is not always wholly natural, and there is a hint of digital modification that has gone into it to make it look near perfect.

Clayton Hutson; success is in tool and skill

A farmer’s success is dependent not only on his skills but also on his tools of trade. Same principle applies in any other profession. For sound engineers, being a skilled engineer with years of experience is nothing if you don’t have the right equipment. Having the right equipment has been a big part of Clayton Hutson’s success.

Clayton Hutson is a sound engineer and a production manager. He is known in the entertainment industry as one of the best tour managers in the market. He has had years of experience on the road. This has seen him acquire experience in dealing with different kinds of performers and skill managing different kinds of tours that make him an unbeatable competitor in his field. However, it is not his mad skills that keep him ahead of the competition; it is his ability to keep his client at the center of all his decisions. His clients, the kind of performance they want to bring on stage and their performance style are always his reason for choosing an option.

Clayton Hutson’s clients praise him for his determination to give 100% on the job. Clayton says that success doesn’t begin when the artist is on stage; it begins way before the tour takes off. When deciding on which equipment to use for the performance. Different artists have different performance styles. Therefore, a console that would suit an artist with an acoustic sound will be different from what is needed for a live performance. For this reason, he is constantly looking out for new equipment in the market.

Being a long time user of DiGiCo, Clay HUtson was the first to try out their SD 11 console on a tour. Clayton says that what pushed him to get this console was the quality it promised him. Since he has a reputation of perfection that he is protective of, he wanted to stay in control of the sound quality he would give to his clients. He says that dealing with local sound production companies takes away that element of control since he has to choose from whatever equipment they have in store. Having the SD 11, would mean that he can travel with it under the bus, in a trailer or travel with it. This means that he is guaranteed of quality.

This careful decision of which equipment to put on stage has seen him be the first choice of every artist planning to go on tour. Learn more:

The American Institute Of Architects Looks To Highlight The Need For Excellence In Design

Across the world, members of the U.S.-based trade association, the American Institute of Architects are performing their duties in a positive way to push forward many of the ideas and policies instigated by the company over the course of its 160-year history. Over the decades the group has been in operation it has built its success on the need to stay abreast of the changes taking place in society which affect the many different ways buildings are used and constructed, and sought to develop a positive education program for architects and the general public.

Under CEO Robert Ivy, the need for a brighter future for the people of the U.S. and those affected by the work of American Institute of Architects members have remained at the heart of the growth of the association. One of the most important aspects of the work of the AIA is to push forward the regulations and requirements undertaken by the U.S. government at local, state, and federal level in a way reflecting the changing face of architecture and the construction industry. Now based in Washington D.C., the American Institute of Architects has become a major part of the landscape of the nation’s capital by remaining in the fore of the discussion about how architecture can affect society in a positive way.

The American Institute of Architects has also developed its own programs and initiatives to ensure the development of architects takes place consistently from those taking their first steps into the academic programs designed to start the career of any design professional to those reaching their retirement. Across the architectural industry, the need for excellence begins with the forms completed by potential architects registering their interest for educational courses and continues through the contracts designed by the AIA for use in all construction projects involving its members.

Robert Ivy has continued the need for public education programs which he believes will provide a group of people much more involved in the direction architecture takes over the remainder of the century. By continuing to push forward the latest technologies and design ideas to reach a changing world and communities threatened by climate change, Robert Ivy is continuing the long tradition begun by the original founders of the American Institute of Architects when the group was established in 1857.
