Rocketship Education Is Eliminating The Acheivement Gaps In Their Students

Rocketship Education is a public, elementary, non-profit network of charter schools. Rocketship is devoted to the lower income communities who do not have access to good schools for their children. The school was founded in 2006 and provides sustainability and scalability in a school model. As Rocketship Education has continued to grow more schools have been opened throughout the United States.

The schools in Tennessee have learned how much progress their students have made in the previous year. The exception is the Davidson County elementary schools because they must wait an additional year. This means when they see the TNReady results they must focus on student proficiency. The public schools in Nashville are now using the NWEA Measures of Academic Progress to measure student learning.

Over 7,400 hundred schools around the globe are now using MAP assessments. These assessments have been used by Rocketship Education since their first school opened their doors. They are pleased to see the MAP assessments in the Nashville public schools. Growth is important for every student but especially so if the student has an economically disadvantaged background. National data reveals students born at poverty level are behind when they begin school and remain behind.

The academic growth rate determines if a student will be able to catch up. If a student in kindergarten scores in the 10th percentile on the standardized test their performance is less than ninety percent for students of the same age. The likelihood is the student will drop out and never reach college. A growth rate of 1.3 academic years is required every year while the child is in elementary school to be caught up by the fourth grade.

This rate of growth sounds difficult but seventy percent of Rocketship Education students are economically disadvantaged. When school began last year there were 146 students behind. When the year ended they had either reached or surpassed their grade level. Rocketship Education eliminated 146 gaps in achievement in one year. The MAP data has shown the average growth of a Rocketship Education student in one year is 1.2 years in reading and 1.35 years in math.

Become super human, Enhanced Athlete

Enhanced Athlete, a bodybuilding products  company based in Cheyenne, Wyoming successfully plead its case to the United States District Court of the Eastern District of California. Michael Adams of Rutan and Tucker represented Enhanced Athlete in their court case against Nutrition Distribution. Nutrition Distribution accused the Cheyenne based company of false advertisements. Nutrition Distribution sent several cease and desist letters to Enhanced Athlete as well as letters demanding settlement payments. Nutrition Distribution claimed Enhanced Athlete’s “false advertisements” had a negative impact on their sales, due to the fact they are a “leader” in the product industry. Enhanced Athlete showed Nutrition Distribution used the false pretense of “false advertisements” in order to bait them into paying the settlements payments, which would be cheaper than the potential legal fees. In addition Enhanced Athlete was able to successfully argue that Nutrition Distribution was not able to actual show any negative impact on sales due to the “false advertisement” claims because there is no provable evidence between Nutrition Distribution’s targeted sales projections.

In a recent Q & A session, Mr. Sajwani sat down to discuss the successes that he’s achieved throughout his career, as well the practices that keep him motivated even after such a fruitful run.

The idea for DAMAC Properties was created in Hussain Sajwani’s youth, as he often spent his after-school hours assisting his father with his own entrepreneurial endeavors. He cites this period in his life as the point when his passion for entrepreneurship was first sparked. While attending The University of Washington, Mr. Sajwani began selling time-share apartments, and he would eventually use the monies raised to strike out on his own, after spending two years working for Abu Dhabi Gas Industries in the financial sector. Respected for his forward-thought, as well as his ability to consistently bring his visions to life, he often looks to the future, imagining the state of Dubai in the next twenty years, as a primary asset for completion. He combines this school of thought with the ability to diminish any fear of failure, understanding that he is a product of, both his successes and his losses.

Jed McCaleb Wants To Help Financial Institutions and People Connect

Jed McCaleb, an American cryptocurrency expert and computer programmer, helped start a venture called Steller.

 

McCaleb started Stellar in 2014 to deal with the flaws that he saw in the international financial system. With Joyce Kim, he co-founded the Stellar Development Foundation. He currently is the CTO of this foundation and the leader of technical development.

 

McCaleb has basically two duties at Stellar, One is to code as well as build the technical aspects at this company. He is also supposed to to do the things that run a business like responding to emails.

 

Stellar.org is a nonprofit that wants people to become more literate when it comes to digital technology and currency. McCaleb has helped develop the softwware Stellar.org.

 

McCaleb got the idea for his foundation after learning about Bitcoin and the technology that made Bitcoin possible. It inspired him to help make a new cryptocurrency that could help connect financial institution. He then changed his mind and would use the new technology called blockchain to create an open source software technology that would also connect financial institutions.

 

One of the goals of Stellar is help the 2.5 billion people who have no connections to banks. Stellar wants to banks make it more affordable for these “unbanked” people to use their services. Banks fail serve these people because there are big costs in serving these people. The lack of connections between banks has not helped, either. It costs money just to transfer between banks.

 

Before Stellar, he was known for making one software programs called eDonkey that was create a large file-sharing network. He created Mt. Gox, one of the Bitcoin exchanges. The last thing he did before Stellar was make the currency called Ripple.

 

Jed McCaleb hope to make the financial system work better for people who usually can’t afford just to get an account at a bank.

Joel Friant shaking the business world with the Original Habanero Shaker

Joel Friant’s story is both inspiring and exciting. The entrepreneur has successfully ventured into varied fields including real estate, product creation, and home-based business. Building from his life story, Friant has helped many people overcome obstacles and realize their goals. He is a renowned trainer who focuses on not only professional aspects but also personal challenges. Friant has developed concepts aimed at helping people succeed in their endeavors.

 

So where did this man start? Joel Friant began his career in home remodeling and real estate. He later ventured into the restaurant business in 1995. This was after he created a Thai-inspired fast foods concept in the United States. It is during this time that Friant decided to take his love for Habanero Shaker to the commercial arena. He first tasted habanero in high school and later learned of other varieties while on a trip to Jamaica. It led to the birth of Original Habanero Shaker.

 

The flagship project was also as a result of the unavailability of habanero shakers in the market. Most of the products that were available were mostly mixed with cheap spices and salt. Friant’s wish was for people to enjoy original and raw habanero pepper. He sold the product to some of the major grocery stores in Washington.

 

He ventured into the real estate business with proceeds from the sale of Original Habanero Shaker. Friant used his experience in real estate to help people own homes. He also established a small mortgage lending company.

 

Another element in Joel Friant’s story is his ability to adapt to the changes and trends in the world. In 2012, he decided to take Habanero Shaker to the online platforms. He began selling the product on Amazon and eBay. The development means that more people can buy the product from any part of the world. Undoubtedly, the online platforms have breathed a new lease of life to the Original Habanero Shaker.

 

While still selling the product online, Friant also learned about crypto-currencies. Evidently, he is a talented entrepreneur who knows when and where to invest his time and resources. Just like his product, he has original qualities that have propelled him to greater heights.

The Oxford Club Continues to Impress

With the rise of the digital age we are constantly being inundated with new information and new ways to approach problems and while that can have some benefits some companies, such as The Oxford Club, can recognize and identify new trends while remaining true to their time-tested philosophies. At over 80,000 members spread out throughout 100+ countries The Oxford Club, a consortium of trusted financial investors and entrepreneurs, has been around since 1989 and the reason they have been so successful is their insistence on sticking to a simple, basic philosophy: “To help our members growth, and protect their wealth.” In addition to this basic philosophy The Oxford Club maintains four rules that they reference when they are building an investment portfolio:

1. A well-balanced investment diet
2. Always have an exit strategy
3. Size matters and
4. Cut down investment costs

These four simple rules have proven to be a guiding light throughout The Oxford Club’s successful history so far.

Investing money can be a daunting task, but luckily The Oxford Club is there to help their members every step of the way. Part of what separates The Oxford Club from other financial groups is their low investment expenses (just 0.3% annually) which allow members to hold onto more of the money their portfolio has earned. In addition to their low investment expenses, they offer a position-sizing formula to determine exactly how much stock you should be investing in a certain company — because in the stock market, there is no such thing as “one size fits all.” As The Oxford Club approaches nearly 30 years of investing they offer perspective members the best plans on the market, and are always careful to never rush into investments.

 

The trouble with the digital age is that we are so constantly barraged with information it is hard to figure out what is fact and what is fiction, this is especially true in the financial sector. Luckily for us, however, there are companies such as The Oxford Club that have made a name for themselves by having the ability to cut through the proverbial noise and use their proven methods to deliver excellent outcomes for all of their members.
