Success Academy Develops a New Online Learning Platform for Educators

Posted on by

Eva Moskowitz is the founder and CEO of Success Academy, and she says that she had two key goals she was looking forward to achieving when she launched Success Academy. These include opening high-performing schools and working towards broad and improved education in America. Success Academy is the biggest charter school network in New York City, and it was established ten years ago. When she launched the schools, she had no plan to expand operations outside of New York City, but recently a new online platform developed by the school is expected to extend their services beyond New York. Moskowitz together with other leaders in the academy revealed about Success Academy Education Institute which is a free online portal offering access to rich development resources for educators. It holds the curriculums and other development strategies applied in the 41 schools of success academy across the city.

Moskowitz said that there are many kids in the country who are enrolled in schools that do not teach them how to read and write or do mathematics and science at basic levels and they are proud to be able to change that situation. She added that the online platform is a great way for them to share their strategies and support educators in the country and outside the country. Moskowitz withdrew from the consideration of her being an education secretary candidate under Trump as the president. Success Academy works towards closing the attainment gap and cultivating academic results of low-income students of color and through their successful operations, they won a Broad Prize worth $250,000. The award is meant to support readiness programs in colleges such as campus visits and scholarships.

The Education Institute platform offers all schools of Success Academy literacy curriculums for basic levels as low as kindergarten through fourth grade. This is every crucial and first step of their big picture of introducing teachers all over the country to the mantra of Success Academy. One of the future plans of Success Academy is to establish a teachers training college at Hudson Yards in Manhattan whereby kindergarten students learn from an inbuilt lab school through eighth grade. Numerous emails were sent to over 15,000 educators in the verge of promoting the online platform, and those who will sign on them would be invited to conferences, workshops and in-person training sessions at Hudson Yards facility.

WEN by Chaz’s Healthy Hair Hack

Posted on by

     Hair hack videos and articles often migrate throughout the internet, as much of these content creators express that if you use dry shampoo and wash your hair less, your hair health is bound to improve. However, dirty hair isn’t always the best hair. Although many people who support the “infrequently wash your hair” trend have a point, (which is that the hair’s natural oils are necessary for optimal health) dirty hair isn’t the only way to keep those precious oils. WEN by Chaz offers a cleansing conditioner, which is gentle enough to refrain from stripping the hair’s natural oils, yet effective enough to get the hair clean.

There are many benefits of swapping your traditional shampoo for WEN by Chaz’s cleansing conditioner. One of these benefits would be that only one product is needed to both cleanse and condition. Another benefit is that the hair becomes healthier due to two reasons: no irritating dry shampoos needed and the preservation of natural oils (as mentioned above). Third, the process of cleansing and conditioning hair is quicker than ever, as only one product has to make its way in and out of the hair. Best of all is that these cleansing conditioners are free of harsh chemicals, as well as suitable for both women and men, cleaning through thick and thin hair. With a new and effective product that is made for multiple different types of hair, who wouldn’t want to try it out? It may just be the next best thing!

A Review Of Hussain Sajwani’s Success With DAMAC Group

Posted on by

Billionaire Hussain Sajwani is confident of that his business relationship with Trump Organization, Donald Trump’s real estate firm, will continue to thrive. DAMAC Properties, which was founded by Hussain Sajwani, partnered with President Trump’s company to develop the Trump International Golf Club. So far, the property’s luxury villas have generated over $2 billion in sales. After he assumed power, most people feared that the president would engage in business, thus creating a potential conflict of interest. To this end, President Trump promised that he would not engage in any new business deals during his tenure. Hussain Sajwani told NBC News that his relationship with the Trumps extends to Ivanka, Donald Jr. and Eric, Trump’s children.

The DAMAC Owner contends that his company started operations by working for the United States Army during the renowned Desert Storm operation as a catering service. Owing to their outstanding performance, the company was contracted to work for the Americans in the Gulf, Bosnia and Somalia. Hussain Sajwani says that DAMAC Group went on to work for large American corporations such as Bechtel. The food service company is part of DAMAC Group, as it serves as a reminder of Sajwani’s first business and his ability to network with his friends, who work for international corporations.

With the recovery of property prices in the UAE and acceptance of foreigners to own properties in the country, Hussain Sajwani re-engineered DAMAC Properties to focus on the real estate business. He went ahead to undertake the company’s initial public offering (IPO) by listing the corporation’s shares in the London Stock Exchange. After he purchased land, Hussain Sajwani managed to sell many units of the 38-story residential building six months before commencing construction. Through DAMAC Properties, the shrewd entrepreneur has been able to enhance the image of Dubai as a glitzy destination.

On New Year’s Eve, President Trump delivered a speech at his Mar-a-Lago resort, which is based in Florida, before 800 paying guests. He praised his business partners around the globe, including Dubai. In particular, the president thanked Hussain Sajwani family for attending the event. He went on to say that they were the most beautiful people and were enjoying every moment of the celebrations. The president’s transition team contended that Trump and Hussain Sajwani did not engage in any discussion about their business partnership. Notably, Hussain has supported various charitable initiatives, including donating AED two million towards a Ramadan project seeking to cloth a million children around the world.

Securus Technologies – Eliminating the Need of Lengthy Jail Visitations

Posted on by

For people looking to stay in touch with their loved ones inside the prison for any reason, there were limited options some time back. One had to make an appointment and then drive through the traffic to the facility and then meet the inmate for a few minutes. It led to wasting a lot of valuable time, and one could never feel that they can talk to their family members when they need them the most. This is where Securus Technologies have made life much easier for everyone. They have introduced a number of tools that allow instant communication between the inmate and his friends and family members.

 

 

Securus Technologies has developed a secured video conferencing tool that is designed especially for prisons and correctional facilities. The company is among the first to offer such services to their clients. The family members can cut down on scheduling visitations, and the jail officials have no worries. These visitations can often turn violent and more guards are to be provided to the visitation area to avoid any conflict. Using the video chatting program, the inmates can chat comfortably as if they are near. Working in a prison facility, I can say that their services are exceptionally great and have helped us make better changes to the entire system of visitation.

 

Securus Technologies also provide investigative systems for the jail officials who use them to solve crimes and to catch corrupt officials within the jail. There are times when corrupt officials help the inmates by providing them with illegal materials that they are not supposed to use inside the premises. We were easily able to track down those things and the officer who provided it to them. The company is also active in solving any problems that might occur with the system. The executives arrive within minutes of complaints being lodged with their customer service department.

George Soros and his Firm Endeavor for Liberalism

Posted on by

George Soros is known as one of the world’s leading philanthropist and has given away over $12million to date. His financing has upheld various organizations and individuals all over the world advocating for accountable administrations, transparency, freedom of expression, and social order that promote justice and equality. This giving centers on individuals who are discriminated for their identity. He has supported a wide range of people; some people who have been marginalized from the mainstream society such as sex workers, drug users, LGBTI individuals and others representing people from Europe. Visit Project Syndicate to learn more about George.

Soros has encountered bigotry firsthand. He was born in Hungary in 1930 and survived the Nazi control of 1944–1945, which brought about the murder of more than 500,000 Hungarian Jews. By securing false identity papers, his Jewish family got to survive thereby covering their backgrounds and helping other families do the same?

As reported in Politico, Soros utilized his fortune to come up with the Open Society Foundation in over 100 countries. The OSF is a network of establishments and partners whose name and operations mirror the impact of Soros reasoning of the philosophy of Karl Popper. He got this ideology while he was at the London school of Economics. Popper contends in his book, Open Society and its enemies that no rationality or belief system is the last authority on truth. He firmly asserted that social orders could just thrive when they take into account a democratic approach to governance, regard for individual rights, and freedom of expression which is the approach at the center of the work at the Open Society Foundations.

Presently, George Soros is a blunt partisan player in America’s political scene, having channeled millions to the Democratic Party and causes such as Ferguson protest. He has been at the forefront in opposing Donald Trump as the president. Soros further pushes his ideologies through the network of OSF in Europe and in more than 100 other nations where they have their operations across the world. He is loathed on the Patriot edges of the Right, although still admired and respected over the left, sometimes rhetoric or imagery whose anti-Semitism leaves little to the imagination.

In 2015, in the Washington Times, it was uncovered that in one year, Soros gave $33 million to bolster well-established groups that encouraged the grassroots, on-the-ground protestors in Ferguson. This was indicated by the latest assessment filings of his non-profit Foundations. The Washington Times also uncovered that Soros directed millions into groups that moved protesters to Ferguson from around the United States and composed crusades to keep it as a central topic in the country’s media outlets. The budgetary tie from Soros to the activist groups brought about the rise of a flammable dissent development that created a 24-hour-a-day national cause caliber from the previous one-day event in Missouri.
