Class Dojo has Changed Classroom Life Globally

Founded in 2011 by founder Sam Chaudhary and Lon Kim, ClassDojo has grown immensely to reach a wider audience. Currently in every three schools, two schools are using the application in their schools. It has been widely accepted because of its usability and ease of providing the link between an institution and a parent.
ClassDojo is used by teachers to give an update to the parents about the welfare of the child at school. They have led to improved communication and the ease of a parent to see what is happening a school. ClassDojo is an app that has improved how parents can manage their children so that they can know how to assist them. It employs video and photo taking skills and uploads them to the app. The parents will then access the videos and see how their children are going on with their studies and activities at school.
In the second round of seed funding, the app has been able to raise $21 million to support them in their expansion. They aim at utilizing the funds that they have to expand and improve the app. The funding was accelerated by General Catalyst, and the new investors that were on board include GSV, Reach Capital, and SignalFire. It has raised an amount of $ 31 million in the venture funding since its inception, and it has grown from being an education tech accelerator, and it is currently part of Y Combinator.
ClassDojo is involved in other partnerships that are improving how the parents understand their children better. They have entered into a partnership with Stanford University to offer short videos that will enable students and teachers about growth mindset’. Through the partnership, the two partners: Stanford Project for Education Research That Scales( PERTS) and ClassDojo have come up with animated videos that are in five parts that will be supplied to teachers for free. The idea will be able to bring research into the classroom and offer better and greater ideas about education matters.
Growth mindset’s primary objective is to prove or show that the capabilities of a student and their intelligence can be improved if they are given the right kind of encouragement. Children will develop their knowledge if they are praised due to their hard work and they will not perform perfectly if they are praised because of their smartness. Encouragement is the key drive for a student to positively attain desired targets.

Wealth Solutions Helping People from Making Simple Mistakes

When you consider the current state of the economy and the general volatility that is running wild, it only makes sense that people are trying to find new ways to hustle and generate side income. That being said, you need to be sure that you know what you are doing before you just jump into something. The key that most people forget is just because you are going to try something new, it doesn’t mean that there are no consequences involved as well. That’s exactly why people just like Richard Blair have been spending considerable amounts of time trying to educate others and attempting to have others simply stop and think about the potential outcomes of their desired actions.

Richard Blair has been fortunate enough not to get caught up in the game of chasing the newest fads and trends without first understanding the implications. While it might be possible to “get rich” or at least “have fun” with the new ideas that are constantly coming out, it is also possible to get stuck in a logjam where everyone else winds up losing just as much money as you. This is all before you consider the added stress and effort that goes into a process like Airbnb, and while you can make money you have to know the costs as well as the potential costs.

Richard Blair isn’t saying that Airbnb is a bad thing, only that you need to consider what you could be giving up by going that route. Just imagine the chaos that your neighbors could deal with after having random guests and parties in your home. Will your property value decrease as a result of people turning a “home” into a “rental?” And even if you can minimize the damage done to your possessions, why would you want that added risk?

As Richard Blair obviously isn’t the judge or the jury of every given case, he does claim that the law can be hard to interpret in situations where a renter causes damage to others. That being said, do you really want to risk being dragged into a lawsuit (or multiple suits) just because an inebriated fan who was tailgating for a game did significant damage? As long as you check over your insurance and know what you are covered for then you should be fine. However, make sure that you actually know what you are doing before you jump into the fray. That is the message from Richard Blair.

Brad Reifler’s Simple But Effective Investment Advice

Brad Reifler, the founder of Forefront Capital recently wrote an article offering his advice for successful investing. This includes refraining from investing all of your income into the stock market, knowing your reasons for making your investments and being able to establish a solid rapport with your fund managers.

One major factor that has inspired Reifler to go into the funding business is that he can very closely sympathize with the fact that those in the middle class struggle to invest due to government limitations. For example, when he tried to invest in a stock for his daughter’s college fund, he discovered that the stock had less than he had originally invested. As a result, his father-in-law ended up giving him some of his life savings to make up for it.

With Forefront Capital, Reifler seeks to help those in the middle class who have been turned away from the investment world due to being deemed “not smart enough to participate”. However, this is gradually changing for the better as the Securities Exchange Commission (or SEC) is recognizing that the general public has become increasingly knowledgeable about both the stock market and the inner workings of investing as well as its risks.

Both Reifler and Forefront Capital’s mission is to go the extra mile to help potential investors overcome their fears about investing due to the Great Recession that occurred in 2008. Reifler is so dedicated he’s offered up his own investment tips that people can follow on their own. Forefront Capital works to provide better compound returns and to help their clients watch their small investment grow on a gradual basis over time. Reifler believes in actually working at his clients’ levels in order to help them better understand what they’re getting themselves into. Before founding Forefront, Reifler served as the chairman and CEO for Pali Capital Inc. Pali Capital was a boutique investment banking firm before it went out of business and shut down in 2010.  Follow Bradley on Twitter for his takes on new financial news, or his About.me page for a full biography.

Thor Halvorssen Discussing Bernie Socialist Agenda on Fox News

Recently, Thor Halvorssen was interviewed by Trish Regan of Fox News about of Bernie socialist agenda and how Sanders’ socialist agenda differs from socialist governments. Halvorssen argued that socialism could violate human rights when society is run by dictatorship government. Further, he explained that socialist policies and socialist countries are not always the same. He pointed out Venezuela, which uses price controls, rather than free markets that can be realized under democratic socialism proposed by Sanders.

 

In the interview, Halvorssen discussed personal experience with socialist governments. He explained that his father was held as a political prisoner of a socialist dictator of Venezuela, where he was tortured until international human rights foundations intervene. His mother was short under the regime of socialist dictator Hugo Chavez, and his cousin is currently in Venezuela prison for the same reason.

 

One would be mistaken to think that Halvorssen hates socialist government that tortured and short his mother. However, he makes a careful distinction between crimes of dictators and socialism. Halverson explained that Venezuela is a good example of how replacing democratic socialist principles with the authoritarian rule can be detrimental to liberty.

 

He explained that socialism is like a knife, it can be used for a noble purpose in preparing meals in the kitchen, and it can be utilized for an evil cause such as weapon against fellow men.

 

Concerning Donald Trump support for Vladimir Putin, it is very dangerous to approach media with such remarks. Putin is well known for human rights violation and verbally supporting his actions is supporting human right violations, Thor Halvorssen explained.

 

Concerning current Democratic frontrunner (Hillary Clinton), Halvorssen expressed his disappointments stating that she has taken millions from oppressive dictators throughout the world, through Clinton Foundation. He explained that this could turn into a quid pro quo corruption if Hillary Clinton became the president. Some dictators will try to reach out the oval office and call in for favors for their campaign contributions.

 

The interview ended with Halvorssen stating that although redistribution of wealth is not the way to end poverty, he world support democratic socialist like Bernie Sanders, rather than someone supporting dictators.

Visual Search Company Slyce & Shoe Carnival Retailer Are Joining Up To Change The Way People Shop

 

Shoe Carnival, one of the biggest retailers for shoes in the United States, and Slyce, a leading visual search company, have recently declared they are partnering up for business. This will bring an even better shopping experience to all customers of Shoe Carnival that use this new technology on their smartphones or on Shoe Carnival’s website.

This feature newly added by Shoe Carnival will allow its mobile customers to take snapshots of any shoes they want and upload them from their phones to Shoe Carnival, whether they are real or just a picture in a magazine. Once a customer uploads a picture, they will get to see the selection of products available at Shoe Carnival and it will show all matches as well as comparable shoes.

This feature has put Shoe Carnival in a position to lead the market with its new cutting-edge visual search technology. Customers will no longer have to travel and leave the comfort of their homes to search for the products they want, they can now snap and send a photo and receive all the information they need for sales or availability.

Slyce gained its popularity in the industry after releasing their visual search technology platform in early 2013. After the release, the company attracted investors to back their technology and has been noticed in the market for both retail and technology.

Besides their image recognition software and their recent partnering with Shoe Carnival, Slyce also created its own program for people to use called Snap and Buy. Very much like the new technology Shoe Carnival is using for their customers, the Snap and Buy software will let people take pictures of products and then compare them with many different stores to show customers where they can find the product they want.

There are other large retail stores that have taken it upon themselves to build partnerships with Slyce as well, such as Home Depot, JCPenny, and Tilly’s. As Slyce continues to expand and their visual search and recognition technology leads over the competition, they will form more partnerships with retailers for years to come.

The letter that Charles Koch’s Father left him

He is one of the most politically influential billionaires. He is the co-owner and CEO of the biggest private firm called Koch Industries Inc. with his net worth being estimated at $41.5 billion according to Forbes as of June 2015.

He successfully made his fortune from diversifying the petroleum products trading company, which he inherited from his father’s oil company. Due to him being a smart business person, he has managed to extend the oil business to nearly 60 countries so far. Koch is the 18th richest man in the world. He had held this job since 1967 when the company was worth $50 million. It’s now valued at $100 billion. The Koch Brothers own the majority of the company.

Charles Koch is the author of the book “Good Profit” talked about a framed letter at his office that his father left for him that has a blueprint about how him and his brothers should manage the family fortune. Koch said that the letter has guided him tremendously in his business

Koch has been supporting Republicans for some time through funding. He does this to ensure that the people of the U.S. can improve their lives when some amendments are done to the tax system already in place. The billionaire said that the American economy is “rigged” in the favor of the wealthy and that it’s not fair and should be changed to ensure better lives for the citizens of the US.

Koch notes that the Republicans have been avoiding government overspending and congratulates them for that. However, they have ignored the pleas from him and his brother to reform the tax system. Koch says Republicans have had several tax breaks here and there but they should be eradicated entirely. Koch says it’s hard to get a candidate who can effect this since it’s away from what people are used to.

Koch has clarified that he has no control of the Republican candidates since the two-tiered system still exists, there is welfare for the wealthy and there is tax code that subsidies the wealthy. Koch says he will support the candidate that supports these interests financially since it will open up the economy and give everyone an opportunity to compete with the once already existing.

Diversant: Building Leaders for the Future and Present

John Goullet is the principal of Diversant and it is a position that he takes very seriously. One thing that stood out to me while reading about this incredibly talented and diverse man is the fact that he is an entrepreneur. I’ve always had a great respect for entrepreneurs. It means they have vision, passion, and creativity. They are a real man’s man and have started from scratch and worked their way up to the top with blood, sweat, and tears. Nothing has come easy to them, nor would they want it that way. They prefer to work for everything in their lives as it means more when it is earned instead of just given to them.

What’s great about John is the fact that he is always looking at the present while also keeping an eye on the future. He knows that nothing stays the same and the world is ever-changing, day-to-day. The minute you become comfortable or think that you have it all figured out, you are dead wrong, as there is so much more to learn and so much more to discover. If you aren’t growing, you are standing still, and if you are standing still, you are complacent. That’s never the case with John and Diversant.

It all started for John Goullet , career wise, with his work as an IT consultant before changing to IT staffing in 1994. John has also been in charge of the development of numerous highly profitable ventures in the IT sector. From there, he founded Info Technologies, an IT staffing company that is all about solutions and helping Fortune 500 companies. Sometimes they need help and a little guidance and John’s company helps provide that and then some. That is why so many people rely on him, count on him, and lead on him during tough times.

They know he has a steady hand and will help lead the way and guide the company. He doesn’t see problems.
