Classdojo Partners With Ad Astra to Develop Yet another Learning Tool
In the year 2011, two innovators by the names, Sam Chaudhry and Liam Don developed an app called ClassDojo. ClassDojo is a communication platform that was created with the intention of enhancing the communication between parents, teachers, and students. As sad as it is, as the years go by, parents have become lesser involved in their students’ academic affairs than normal. However, you cannot take their attention off the screens of their gadgets whether it is for work purposes or not. With this in mind, Sam and Liam came up with a way to exploit the overuse of computer and mobile devices and use it to enhance communication between parents, teachers and their students.
When the app was officially launched 7 years ago, its reception was overwhelming. Within no time, more than thirty-five million teachers and students from more than thirty different nationalities were using the app. This motivated the founders to make sure they make it available in a variety of languages in order to attract more users who are not from English speaking nations. This was done two years into the launch. A couple of other modifications have been made to make the app more efficient for instance; the introduction of the messaging feature and the digital content streaming feature that is called Class Story. Initially, the app was designed to allow the transfer of digital images and videos.
ClassDojo form a partnership with AD Astra
Ad Astra is a private school situated in Los Angeles. The school was founded by Elon Musk. Elon Musk has made it his agenda to make sure the school stands out from other schools. The school recently partnered with ClassDojo, which has become a brand for educational software developers to come up with a new learning tool that they named the Conundrum. The conundrum is a set of puzzles that require critical thinking and problem-solving skills to find solutions to. The conundrums work in a way that they pose open-ended ethical questions that require critical thinking. The students, under the guidance of their teachers, are asked to collaborate with each other in order to determine the solutions.
Matt Badiali introduced the idea of Freedom Checks. The idea came after thorough research and reading of the laws governing the business sector in the country that he realized that there was a very important statute that was not known to many investors. He noted that there are tax exemptions for companies that are involved in the exploration of natural resources found in the country. These companies are however required by law to collect 90 percent of their revenue from the local operations and pay out huge dividends to the investors. After realizing the opportunity that was available in the industry, Matt Badiali was quick to share the Freedom Checks idea with other people.
Although the idea was received with great skepticism, some investors understood what Matt Badiali was trying to introduce. There are the people who managed to make some good money from this sector very early. By July, when the checks were released, some people had multiplied their investments. Many people kept out of the industry because they felt that Matt Badiali was unfamiliar to them and there is no way they were going to take a word from a stranger. Since then, he has managed to prove to them that nothing is impossible and what he was telling them was true.
Matt Badiali is a qualified financial expert. He is also a geologist. He holds a masters in Geology from Florida Atlantic University and a bachelors in Earth Science from Penn State University. He has been to many countries around the world where he has been given an opportunity to study how the mining sector in these countries operate. When there is a shift in production of a certain resource, Matt Badiali can tell the difference it will create in the market. He spotted the idea of the Freedom Checks after he scrutinized the market thoroughly and noticed that there are companies that will be rewarding investors handsomely due to the effects of the services they offer.
The Trump Bonus Checks is another idea that is close to what we have with Freedom Checks. Mike Burnick introduced it.

Shervin Pishevar is not exactly a household name. But the companies that the prolific venture capitalist and entrepreneur have founded and helped to grow certainly are. Shervin Pishevar has been behind the creation of some of the most important companies in the world of tech. These include such well-known firms as Virgin Hyperloop, Airbnb and Uber. Shervin Pishevar has personally founded companies ranging from WebOS to Social Gaming Network.
Although he has little free time, he somehow is able to maintain one of the most-followed Twitter accounts of anyone in the world of tech. Shervin Pishevar often holds forth on a wide range of topics, mostly centering on the economy and the role and future of technology in the United States.
In a recent 21-hour tweet storm, Shervin Pishevar described some of the effects that he believes rising interest rates will have on the equity and other markets.
Rising interest rates will mark a new era
One of the things that Pishevar has hit on is the fact that he believes that rising interest rates will usher in a fundamentally new era in all asset classes.He says that this may ultimately be a good thing, provided that the Federal Reserve is willing to completely butt out of the market and not take a heavy-handed approach to open market operations. But Pishevar warns that the short-term results of this reset will likely be painful for many investors. Although, such conditions are likely to result in many rich buying opportunities.
One of the problems that Pishevar sees is that continual interest rate hikes after such a prolonged period of virtually free money is going to send markets into a highly volatile period. He says that there is likely to be a serious correction and that some of the metrics that professionals use to judge the health of markets are likely to depart sharply from theirhistoric norms. The 200-day moving average is just one of the measures that Pishevar says could end up seeing serious departures from its normal ranges as the market readjusts to the shock of dealing with more historically normal interest rates.
