Trying to down Rocketship Education

For the past few decades public schools have been in questioned when it came to the education of children in the United States. The size of overcrowded classrooms and students not getting the proper training in academics gave birth to charter schools. These schools started off well with smaller classrooms and students but time changes all things. With the influx of kids coming into more charter schools and technology playing a bigger part of our society, the education has to change to keep up with today’s standards. Rocket Education Charter school recently came under fire out in California for its approach to this new wave of schooling.

Rocket Education is a public Charter School. While many are private this is a different twist allowing more children to part take in its education. Some of the issues that came up were from the past but also some new issues. The crowded classrooms are still a factor that all schools struggle with. Having forty to eighty kids in a classroom with little help can take a toll and occupy the time of any teacher. Technology was introduced to help with this concern. Having the kids work on computer workstations allows the teacher to single out those students in need of help. It also prepares them for the computer based world we live in.

The down side is the amount of time children spend on the computer. This may cause them to lack in the social development skills area. Spending so much time on the computer creates less human interaction. Rocket Educations has what is considered strict guidelines aimed at teaching discipline to kids. Some people think the limited bathroom breaks are too harsh. The idea is to get kids accustom to finishing their goal in a timely manner preparing them for the outside world. There is also the idea about teacher help and who should be helping. The question has come up if non teachers should be helping kids as their qualifications may be questioned. With no sure solutions all that can be done are for schools to do their best.

Gareth Henry Found Refuge In Canada

In 1977, Gareth Henry was born in St. Mary’s, Jamaica. He was raised by his mother, aunt, and grandmother. He went to high school when he was 10, and he realized he was gay when he was a teenager. After seeing a gay man in his town get harassed and called a “batty man,” he decided to hide homosexuality. He moved to his uncle’s house when he was almost 16 and was able to be himself.

He graduated from Titchfield High School and moved to Kingston to attend Excelsior Community College and the University of the West Indies. He earned his Bachelor of Science degree and his master’s degree in Communications for Social and Behavior Change. He volunteered for Jamaica AIDS Support for Life in 1997. He then volunteered for J-FLAG in 1998. In 2004, J-FLAG’s co-founder was murdered. Henry took on the position of director and became the lead advocate for the organization.

Of his 13 friends killed, one was chased to the harbor by a mob. Since he couldn’t swim, everyone just watched him drown. He had to identify the bodies of several of the others that were killed. Last Valentines Day, Gareth Henry was surrounded by an angry mob at a pharmacy and the police did nothing to help. Instead, the police started beating Henry and his friends with their weapons.

Some police even led mob attacks. A police officer showed up at his home with civilians and pointed a gun at his window. The officer said he had to go away or he would kill him. The Jamaican ministry of justice didn’t help either. He was once stopped in traffic to be told by a police officer that he had found him and he was going to kill him. He never forgot that statement.

Gareth Henry went to Canada in 2008 because the country protects human rights. His mother, sister, and nieces also faced threats and had to relocate to Canada. Gareth Henry was granted refuge with the help of Amnesty International, EGALE Canada, and the Metropolitan Community Church of Toronto.

GreenSky Credit Brings The World To Builders

GreenSky is one of the leading forces in the world of fintech, a mix-up of financial services and modern technology. The company – more or less – links financial institutions ready to lend money to consumers and small businesses with those consumers and small businesses, taking a cut from both the recipient and sender of the loans that disburse them to the aforementioned debtors.

Having disbursed over $13 billion through GreenSky Credit, the company’s lending program, it has reached the wallets of about 1,900,000 customers and more than 13,000 lenders that are currently active at the time of publication.

What is GreenSky Credit for?

The world is full of credit cards, retailers and wholesalers alike that are willing to loan their goods out to potential customers, mortgages, and other forms of consumer debt. Further, the United States – the market that GreenSky Credit serves – is home to one of the world’s greatest consumer debt loads per capita.

Why don’t consumers opt for the countless forms of traditional lending that exists?

GreenSky Credit is unique in that it offers loans at interest rates that traditional financial institutions offer – not the high-interest “flex” loans that are taking low-income households by storm – to consumers more quickly than traditional loans can be consummated.

Consumers can receive funding through GreenSky Credit by filling out a few simple forms on either GreenSky’s website or its mobile application. Not too many financial services companies offer the same means of applying for financing to customers.

Builders have traditionally been a favorite of GreenSky Credit

In construction, contractors – unless they own mid-sized to large companies – are typically unable to get their hands on enough money from customers to purchase all the materials that are necessary to complete tasks at hand. As such, they can be greatly aided by programs like the Greensky Home Improvement Payment Card.

The GreenSky Home Improvement Payment Card, for example, is a six-month-long line of credit that builders can purchase all the materials they’re approved for with. This helps complete jobs faster, ultimately garnering payments quicker than without such oh-so-clutch financing.

Shervin Pishevar Storms on Twitters with his Independent View about the Economy.

A few weeks ago, Shervin Pishevar went on Twitter to condemn the manner in which the US Government had neglected the economic growth of the country. He pointed out that other world economies were very determined to overtake the United States in the world’s economic leadership. In one of his twitter comments, Shervin Pishevar indicated that countries like China and Japan were sleepless in their quest to succeed the US to lead the economy of the world. One of the incidences that he pointed out to justify his views was the recent event in which the Chinese built a train station within nine hours. This was a clear indication that the country had embraced technology in a manner that has enabled it to conduct economic activities in a very efficient way.

One of the key obstacles that Shervin Pishevar highlighted to be causing the lad-behind of the US economy was the legalization of monopolies in the economy. There were companies that he pointed out as some of which have been contributing to this factor. Some of them included Amazon, Microsoft, Apple, Facebook and the Alphabet. On this issue, he indicated that allowing monopolies to control the market always discourages other new business from investing in the industry. Consequently, there is reduced competition in the market and hence no motivation for innovation.

Before his storm in Twitter, Shervin Pishevar had remained undercover for a very long timeThis was when he formed Investment company. Shervin Pishevar said that that decision was the best for his family’s interests, which had started to get dragged into his wars.

GreenSky Credit improves its Credit Risk through transferring it to the Retail Merchants.

The technological advancements that have been initiated by GreenSky Credit have no precedence in the finance and lending industry. The technology that the organization has invented under the leadership of Zalik David has astonished a lot of industry players in the manner that it has grown popular. This technology involves a platform on the internet that has enabled successful communication between the merchants, creditors, consumers and the contractors to interact, all with a common intention of transacting business. This has been after a lot of suffering by the credit consumers in the industry, where they were subjected to tedious processes to get financial assistance from the financial institutions and other creditors. The customers were also required to fill in a series of documents with details that were unnecessary for the process of loan application.

After the foundation of GreenSky Credit back in 2006, the CEO of the company decided to make the company a lender to the small creditors and a guarantor to the contractors and the merchants. This way, the organization would be able to tap customers from all these businesses and make significant profits from assisting them most appropriately. Here is how the agreement operates: The small financial lenders and the creditors may have such a large customer base that they may face difficulties in meeting their credit requirements. Instead of turning down their loan applications, they continue vetting the applicants even without having enough capital to fund them. Once the vetting is over, and the customer is proved to be creditworthy, GreenSky Credit comes in and funds the customers on behalf of the creditors.

This engagement has been quite beneficial to many lenders and merchants as they can retain their market share even during the times of financial constraints. The customers are also at an advantage because their financial needs are fully met. The online platform by GreenSky Credit has also reduced the bulk of work that the consumers and the creditors were to do to complete the loan application process. On the other hand, GreenSky Credit benefits from a small percentage that is charged on the outstanding loan balance of every customer as commission.

Chainsmokers Take Third Longest No. 1 on the Dance Chart

While Gorillaz’s Demon Days might still be on Billboard’s Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart 13 years after its release, The Chainsmokers’ debut album, Memories…Do Not Open is poised to take the Dance Chart bronze, for third longest at No. 1. Both albums have managed 34 weeks, but The Chainsmokers, who have spent the past year repeatedly reclaiming their crown from different challengers, look likely to be the long-term winner.

Despite the fact that Memories…Do Not Open was released a year ago, it is still holding strong. The first Chainsmokers album held first place on the Dance Chart for more than half the year, despite new releases from Above & Beyond, Kygo, Odesza, and William Control temporarily taking the stage as they had their debuts at No. 1. After Avicii’s death, the Swedish EDM musician claimed the top spot, and even Funk Wav Bounces Vol. 1 by Calvin Harris held court for a little while and controlled the Top Dance/Electronic list for many months more.

The EDM-pop team up of Alex Pall and Andrew Taggart has proven to be an exceptional one, claiming five Top 10 Hits of their 13 songs on Billboard’s Hot 100. All three of their EPs peaked within the top three of the Top Dance/Electronic Albums listing, with Collage taking the No. 1 crown for a time as well.

2018 has brought both changes and victories for The Chainsmokers. They claimed Billboard’s number one space in the 2018 rankings for the Billboard Dance 100, and updated their logo for the second time as well. The DJ/production duo initially stood firm against releasing an album in 2016, preferring to focus on EPs. They eventually relented, much to the delight of their fans, including the Billboard Top Dance/Electronic Albums chart.

Alex Pall on Chainsmokers Success in the last 4 years

Over the last 24 months, Chainsmokers, (an electronic group) has made headlines in the music scene. Made up of the talented (Andrew Taggart) producer and the music DJ and creator Alex Pall, the group has revolutionized the EDM-pop scene. From the 2014 magical sound entitled #selfie, the consistency in this group by many standards has been phenomenal. Chainsmokers have given fans of EDM-pop experimental but beautiful songs such as Closer (with the lovely artist, Halsey).

Alex Pall journey to the legendary band is an interesting one. Many bands have different stories on how they met but for Chainsmokers, the meeting story was highly inspired by their love for music. Although Alex Pall and his partner have a different musical talents (the latter being a producer) they have used this diversity to break through the competitive dance music scene. According to the duo, music to them is an ever-learning journey and being good students has been of great help to them.

Although Alex Pall admits that the main music genre they are famous for is dance music, being experimental in their Spotify playlists makes them incomparable. By diversifying, they have been able to create music that is relatable and fun to listen. For example, their songs (such as Roses and waterbed) do not have a specific genre. The songs have a lot of influence from pop, hip-hop, and indie.

Their creativity journey is by many standards unique. Alex Pall explains that the reason why the group is inclined to singing their own records (as opposed to the tradition in the EDM-pop scene) is to personalize their projects. Unlike the main acts such as Avicii that never sang on their own records, the group has been singing on their own song for years. To him, this has helped the group to personalize their project and give a clear personal touch.

Alex Pall points out that from the reaction and the love the fans have shown them is fulfilling. Chainsmokers as a group is now reaching more people especially young people in their late teens and the early twenties. Their use of musical platforms such as Spotify and SoundCloud according to him has helped them reach more audience.
