Sharron Battle, Founder/CEO of selfiepay™

The best thing since Apple’s IOS secure mobile operating system, selfiepay™ is the next level for mobile payment structures. Mastermind Sharron Battle‘s selfiepay™ has been created at a time where national security is of the utmost importance and the demand for higher security measures have increased even higher. Dubbed “The Next Steve Jobs”, Sharron looks forward to taking selfiepay™ to the Web Summit in Dublin, Ireland and stirring up more competition between the tech companies in attendance. Sharron expressed in a recent interview her commitment to advancing selfiepay™ in the marketplace.

With roots firmly grounded in the “Show Me” state Missouri, Sharron has done just that. With an expansive background in engineering, business strategy and finance, a professional graphic designer, and in the more recent years stepping into the entrepreneurial realm, her well-rounded background is the foundation for much success with mobile payment application selfiepay™. The self-recognition technology behind selfiepay™is reminiscent of futuristic Sci-Fi movies where fingers, hands or eyes were scanned to grant access or to authenticate someone’s identity. True-to-life, nowadays everyone has this technology right at their fingertips literally.

The demands of today’s instantaneous lifestyle, people are accustomed to doing everything on the fly. Well, with this type of lifestyle, the security stakes are higher. Children are learning to use iPads, smart phones and partaking in cyberspace conversations within 140 characters on Twitter with people they probably would never meet in their lifetime. Companies, and even more importantly parents, are investing in security software to limit malicious attacks to none, putting checks and balances into protocol, tightening physical security among other strategic measures.

The timeliness of selfiepay™, facial recognition technology, enhancing everyday payment structures adds another level of security to meet global demands. Consumers are able to take their identity security into their own hands instead of totally relying on companies to be their eyes. According to Sharron, “[selfiepay™] can be used from a mobile device, tablet, watch and interactive TV monitors. Using the combination of facial and iris recognition adds more integrity to the payment process providing close to a 100% confidence level of a person’s identity.”

Sharron Battle is one of few women, let alone minority women, in the technology world.  Her ingenious creation of such a technologically sound mobile payment structure has afforded her and her team a seat at the table with the big boys. November 3 – 5, Sharron and her team will travel to Dublin, Ireland to take part in the Web Summit 2015. There selfiepay™will take centerstage as one of the premier startups to be showcased to the technology world market.

selfiepay™ is not the wave of the future, it is the solution of now. New millennials and techies will grab hold of this next level technology implementing it into their everyday lives. The demand of higher security measures calls for the existence of selfiepay™. Visit the website to learn more about the creator and technology behind selfiepay™. Download the mobile application on GooglePlay (soon to roll out in the Apple Store).

Cannabis, known as the “marijuana plant”, is one of the most controversial topics in the media today. For years, updates on the marijuana policy have stirred several debates and discussions in relation to state budgeting, decriminalization, and tax burdens. Marijuana usage has increased steadily over the past two years throughout the United States. Many state regulators are aware of the effects of marijuana and the various illnesses that can be treated by utilizing the drug. In the past decade, states have decided to pass bills in order to legalize the use of medical marijuana. On November 9, 2015, medical marijuana made its debut in the state of Illinois.

Medical dispensaries began opening for business to sell the product to patients and caregivers all over the Chicagoland area. Patients bought $210,000 of medical marijuana in the first week it was legal. Since the bill was passed in 2013, marijuana has been treatment for medical illnesses such as chronic pain, insomnia, glaucoma, seizure disorders, and many types of cancer. Although the drug has been approved for medical use, many patients were turned away on the first day. This issue left many patients concerned, especially those whom plan to substitute cannabis for other medications.

The permit is given based on the individuals health requirements, in which must be one of listed qualifying conditions. As of September 2015, thirty-nine conditions have been listed in the Medical Cannabis Pilot Program Act. Some of these conditions include: Alzheimer ’s disease, Crohn’s Disease, Hepatitis C, Lupus, Multiple Sclerosis, Rheumatoid Arthritis, and other health related issues. There are regulations that must be followed in order to use medical marijuana in Illinois. Patients must be fingerprinted, undergo a background check, and pay $150 a year for a special photo I.D. This process may sound pretty simple, yet takes time to be registered.

Many groups are opposed to the idea of medical marijuana. Chuck Rosenberg, head of the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, called medical marijuana “a joke”, stating that it has not gone through strict regulatory testing like prescriptions drugs. Many others put marijuana in the category with heroin, including the Federal Law. Hopefully, it is seen more for its positive attributes and brings great relief to those individuals with serious health problems.
