ClassDojo, the tech-ed app

Sam Chaudhary and Liam are the two people who founded ClassDojo. They have made it great and their invention today has improved education a lot. ClassDojo was launched in 2011 by the two, in San Francisco. Since then, the app has provided an amazing experience to the parents about what is going on in school, and how their children are doing and developing.

One of the co-founders says that the app is meant to improve learning both when the child is in school and at home. Teachers, on the other hand, share their daily school plans with parents. It is very fulfilling for a parent to know what their child is going to be taught in school and how it is going to be done. Furthermore, a teacher is able to share photos with the parents of how their students are progressing, by showing the most recent activities that the student participated in, and their regular performance.

Other technologies for the classroom have been invented, apart from ClassDojo. These apps give competition to ClassDojo. However, the important thing is that ClassDojo does not dwell so much on competition because the founders believe that to achieve a perfect environment for three groups, it has to focus more on user satisfaction.

The application is provided free for users. The developers do not earn on user-data because they value privacy. It would not be fit for ClassDojo to feed the developers on user data because it would then mean that they violate some of their policies. It would also mean that the goal they seek to achieve will not be met.

As improvements are made on ClassDojo, soon parents will be able to make some easy transactions like making payments for events and activities in the school, all through the app. This makes it easier for parents who have to leave their jobs and travel all the way to deliver a check or cash the money to the school. ClassDojo aims at making everything easier for everyone, and making life in school enjoyable rather than too serious because that way, children will be able to study more comfortably.

Chris Linkas stated that people should always consider if they decided to leave their present career for the financial sector because it would never be that easy in the beginning.

 

 

Jorge Moll Explains Morality With Science

It’s easy to think that today’s world is an awful place full of murderers, theives, rapists, and other degenerates. When you turn on the news, it’s certainly easy to think the worst. The truth is, however, that we are living in the most peaceful age thus far for humanity. Jorge Moll, a neuroscientist at D’Or Institute for Research and Education (IDOR) in Brazil, has conducted experiments that may build more faith in humanity.

Moll, a PhD and founding member of IDOR, was recently featured in the Washington Post in the article, “If it Feels Good to be Good, it Might Be Only Batural.” The Post summarizes the work of Moll and his contemporaries in neuroscience as they explore the origin of empathy and altruism. Studies of animals have previously shown a natural instinct to avoid earning pleasure by causing pain to others. In humans, the experiments are more cerebral; participants struggle with scenarios that ask them to sacrifice one for the many, while they undergo brain scans.

Other studies have looked at the brain’s response to helping someone near or far in proximity. Jorge Moll has found that moral emotions are rooted in the physical brain, not in the intangible soul or free will (https://crunchbase.com/person/jorge-moll). Psychopaths have brains that are predictably ‘dead’ in the areas flagged as empathy zones. These findings open up the possibility of treating the brain like it’s injured and trying to repair it.

Jorge Moll’s vision for the future is to combine technology with brain science to improve life for all people. One application of this morality study may be to help people understand that people who seem far away need help as much, maybe more, than people in close proximity to us. Convincing the brain to offer the same reward for helping people you cannot see would greatly improve life around the globe. The applications for Moll’s research are still being explored, but will certainly have far-reaching impacts.

 

David Giertz Highlights the Importance of social security talk

There has been a concern recently about advisors failing to talk to their clients about social security. Dave Giertz addressed this issue in an interview with a journalist from The Wall Street Journal newspaper. The interviewer was Veronica Dagher who is a columnist for WSJ’s Wealth Advisor section. According to the interviewer, the issue of advisors failing to advise their clients about social security had grown rampant in the country. Mr. David Giertz who is the president of Nationwide Financial distributors affirmed to this issue saying that indeed most advisors are skipping this bit when educating their clients.

Mr. Giertz assertions were supported by the findings of a survey that was conducted by Nationwide Financial Distributors. From the study, it was found out that most of those interviewed were not informed about social security by their advisors. The survey was conducted on retired people and those who were ten years close to retirement. Mr. Giertz also said that four out of five interviewees were willing to change advisors if they found an advisor who would talk to them about social security. He cited that many advisors are probably not talking about the critical issue due to its complexity. He called upon advisors to change their tact and talk more about social security. Mr. Giertz pointed out that many people were willing to ditch their current advisors for new ones who talk about this issue confidently.

David Luther Giertz works for Nationwide Investment Services Corporation as a financial advisor. He is based in Dublin, Ohio. He has worked in this field for over 31 years, and this has enabled him to amass massive experience. Nationwide investment Services Corporation is a company that deals with a wide array of affairs that include buying and selling of securities.

Mr. Giertz is a broker, and he is registered with a financial regulatory body called Financial Industry Regulatory Authority (FINRA). A broker is an individual who works for a brokerage institution. Such institutions trade in many things that include securities, bonds, and mutual funds. A brokerage institution must also be registered with FINRA. The agency operates as a dealer or buys and sells stock on behalf of other clients.

Larkin and Lacey look back at the actions of Sheriff Joe Arpaio

When the news first broke that president Trump had granted a presidential pardon to sheriff Joe Arpaio Jim Larkin and Micheal lacey saw this as denial of justice. They criticized the decision as one that had stopped the wheels of justice for a man who had made a career violating the rights of others with little regard for what was right or wrong. Learn more about James Larkin and Michael Lacey: http://james-larkin.com/press/ and http://james-larkin.com/

The sheriff is regarded as one of the most brutal in the country, and this was compounded by his tough on immigration stance an agenda and ideology that would propel Trump to the white house. It was therefore not strange that trump so Sheriff Joe Arpaio as a man just doing the job he was elected to do with zero regards for context.

The sheriff ran a department that was keen on systematic racial profiling of the Hispanic community. The case would see the president grant his first presidential pardon long before he was even convicted and with that, the sheriff was spared a jail sentence of up to six months for violation of court orders.

Judge G. Murray Snow had found him guilty of violating court orders issued by fellow judge Bolton when the sheriff was sued in Melendres v. Arpaio’s for racial profiling.

The judge found him guilty of the same and ordered that the sheriff implement a raft of measures that would ensure that racial profiling would no longer be a problem in the department. Read more: Michael Lacey | Crunchbase and Jim Larkin | Crunchbase

The sheriff so entrenched in his ways did not see the need to change a thing this is what resulted in the second court case that found him guilty of violating court orders. Sheriff Joe Arpaio has a rather bad history as sheriff since his first election in 1992. In the six terms that he served as sheriff of Maricopa County, he would create tented jails that say inmates and detainees have their basic rights violated.

The sheriff oversaw the jails that claimed numerous lives through suicides, mysterious deaths as well as sexual offenses. The jails would be the subject of articles run by Jim and Michael in the phoenix new times.

When the two investigated the death of a veteran during a jail riot, as well as that of a woman who fell into a coma despite requesting for medication which she was subsequently denied despite being diabetic.

The articles did not sit well with the sheriff this was in follow up to another article an investigative piece that had focused on the sheriff’s real estate investments worth more than 700,000 for a public officer. This had marked the start of a very acrimonious relationship between the sheriff and Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin.

The sheriff considered them enemies hell-bent on to bring him down and thus his duty to cut them to size by all mean necessary.

The intimidation tactics, however, would not work on them but instead turned against him when the county was forced to settle with them for 3.75 Million after they were arrested and detained illegally. The money would be used to fund what today is known as the Frontera fund.

Analyst GoBuyside Looks GDPR Implications

Beginning on May 25, 2018, all European Union member states will be required to abide by the new General Data Protection Regulations. These new regulations are a complete and drastic rewriting of the current EU Data Protection Directive, which has been in effect since the 90s. The digital landscape has greatly changed since that time, with the amount of personal data available much, much more. This is why the EU thought it best to revisit and revise these regulations.

A chief analyst for GoBuyside, a global recruitment platform, analyzed the situation. The analyst said that the companies in these member states should now begin to evaluate the changes they will need to make in the face of these new regulations. In other words, they will need to completely redo their systems to make sure they only see the individual client’s data that the EU allows them to see based on the new guidelines.

These new guidelines put much emphasis on transparency and accountability. Not only will the company’s be expected to make the changes, but the EU will constantly hold them accountable. The new regulations will also be applied to some non-EU companies who do business with people or organizations in an EU state.

This another major change from the previous regulations which only required those companies within the EU to abide by it. A good many experts have appeared offering their expertise in helping companies make the switch before May. These experts will definitely help, but their expertise will not come cheap. They will assist with all of the necessary preparations, including getting the services of a data officer if it is needed (some companies won’t be required to have one). But that just one of the many things the expert will do.

They will also carefully train business leaders about the details of the regulations, they will help determine which information is held, they will update procedures around subject access requests, and they will inform employees the proper procedures in the event of a data breach. This is not really something that is exclusive to the EU. The U.S. is one of several countries who has implemented similar privacy laws. In cooperation with EU, the U.S. has instituted was is known as the Safe Harbor system.

Glen Wakeman: Assisting Small Time Entrepreneurs

Glen Wakeman is the founder of Nova Four, a company that provides financial assistance to businesses who needs capital (analystoffinance.coms). The company is also an investment firm, allowing their clients to invest in their company portfolio. For more than two decades, Glen Wakeman worked as a financial executive in the corporate world, but he figured out that starting his own company would be much better, as he will be yielding his own time and he will make all the decisions. The establishment of Nova Four gave him the independence to use his time according to his will, and he is also doing great in managing his business.

When he was first thinking about what kind of business he should set up, Glen Wakeman thought deeply, and he noticed that business people who own small businesses are having difficulties on where they can find additional funding for their company. After seeing idealistic entrepreneurs struggle, Glen Wakeman suddenly had the idea of helping them financially by providing the capital that they needed, assuring him of the payment once the business got back on track. With Nova Four, Glen Wakeman can help thousands of entrepreneurs across the United States, and some of these startups became a thriving company. Glen Wakeman feels delighted every time he witnesses a business he helped succeed.

Aside from providing financial assistance, Glen Wakeman is also providing entrepreneurs with an online internet portal which provides them with videos and other resources that talks about success. Glen Wakeman stated that success could not be earned instantly, and one has to work hard so that they can achieve it. Glen Wakeman also believes that success can be attained by strictly following five major rules: leadership, human capital, execution, risk management, and governance.

In 2015, Glen Wakeman decided to introduce the LaunchPad Holdings LLC, another investment firm which would assist investors who wanted to focus on trading and related investments. With LaunchPad Holdings LLC and Nova Four on his side, he believes that more small-time entrepreneurs would make it big. He also promises them that he will be doing everything that he can to assist them financially.
