ClassDojo Startup Application Gaining Popularity Among Teachers And Parents

During the series B funding campaign, ClassDojo managed to raise at least $21 million. The project is meant to further develop an application that is now connecting teachers and parents and is a great tool that is offering a consistent way to share information between teachers and parents about the progress of students.

 

At least 2 in 3 schools in the U.S. are now using ClassDojo and the number is projected to rise due to the reliability and configuration of the application. Unlike the once-in-a-semester meetings that would be held to review the progress of students, ClassDojo is making this a continuous process that is also going to bring students closer to their teachers.

 

At its establishment in 2011, the founders of ClassDojo were concerned about the growing trend where tech firms were making digital curriculum and grade books while they forgot about creating a culture and community that would unite teachers, students and parents. This is why the ClassDojo application was launched and to their surprise it has gained a lot of popularity, becoming a key element that is helping teachers to conduct their business. The application is used by teachers in more than 85, 000 schools in the U.S., both charter and private to public schools.

 

To make it a conducive environment for connection and empowerment, ClassDojo is designed with heavy security features. The company does not make revenue from user’s data and is privy to the security threats the application is likely to face. Privacy is also guaranteed and provided for through features that also allow the users to control their accounts. The Series B round has brought on board new investors including GSV, SignalFire and Reach Capital. The whole process was overseen by General Catalyst and is bound to make the company bigger.

NutriMost Battles Rival Company in Court While Combating Weight Gain on the Side

People often affiliate dieting with females, but that often stems from the manner certain regimens are marketed in. Ignoring the traditional manner for marketing diets is the popular program, NutriMost. Their belief that gaining weight is genetic and installed in everybody’s unique DNA allows a team of specialists to construct plans using NRF technology. These plans are totally unique to the individual who was analyzed by the company, which results in a client losing twenty to forty pounds in only a few weeks. Equaling out to about five pounds of fat each week, clients lose weight in a way that helps them better understand how to keep it off well after their program has ended.

Losing Weight and feeling great with NutriMost
NutriMost has yet to be proven ineffective, so rivals of the company have been working tirelessly to develop their own technology that accomplishes the same task as NutriMost’s exclusive NRF technology. After their results are deemed less than favorable, desperation sets in and forces the competitors to take extreme measures. Healthy Living, for example, took a shortcut in an attempt to be more like NutriMost by swiping their promotional video. Advertising their “Can’t Lose Diet,” Healthy Living’s video is an exact replica of NutriMost’s; they even kept NM clients in the video. Surely Healthy Living has been taken to court, and NutriMost has been working tirelessly to sustain their clients, attract new ones, and win this legal battle. Though this may seem stressful, the company’s team of experts are more than prepared for the job.

Sanjay Shah of Solo Capital

Autism is a development disorder that is commonly diagnosed among young children. With a one in 68 chance of being diagnosed with autism, this is an interesting developmental disease that lacks information about the disorder despite its common diagnosis. In recent news, one individual in particular is on a mission to learn more about autism and has even started a foundation to collect donations to further fund the research of autism. This individual is known as Sanjay Shah Denmark who founded Autism Rocks in 2014 as a way to learn more about the development disorder due to the recent diagnosis of his son in 2011.

Though it is commonly known that autistic individuals communicate in a different way and that they often have a hard time in social situations, the questions that needs to be answered for Mr. Shah is the cause behind this. The research will not only help him and his family, but will also help other families around the world.

 

 Autism Rocks was officially founded by Mr. Shah in 2014 as a foundation that is currently based in London. The inspiration behind this foundation was using the love that he and his son have form music as inspiration to developing a foundation that could bring his family together. Though this foundation is only two years old, it has raised millions of dollars and has helped further the overall advancement.

Securus Technologies recently received accreditation from Better Business Bureau (BBB). Securus had met the BBB accreditation standards, which include a commitment to make good faith and effort to resolve any consumer complaints.
In June 2016, Securus Technologies announced that it would release reports over the next six months that expose Global Tel Link over their actions that lacked integrity. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Richard Smith, said that he was disappointed that the entire industry could stoop below the integrity bar. He explained that the purpose of their business is not motivated about making money but serving their customers satisfactorily.
Securus Technologies accused GTL of integrity breaches when they provided telecom services at the Louisiana Department of Corrections. The report said that GTL had programmed their clocks at the correctional facility to add either 15 or 36 seconds to the initial call duration. GTL had also programmed their rate calls at higher rates than those permitted under their tariffs. Moreover, they artificially inflated charges to customers by adding various amounts of money. The company also billed calls more than once. All of their actions were deliberate, unlawful, and caused Louisiana taxpayers to be overcharged $1,243,000. Richard Smith concluded by saying that even though these integrity breaches were committed in the past, time alone wasn’t sufficient to wash away GTL’s sins.
