It’s Not Rocket Science

Lower income communities have been hit with a plethora of obstacles in the recent years. There simply aren’t enough jobs in most of these areas as there once was, and housing prices are climbing as well. But Rocketship Charter School aims to resolve this issue, and they’re doing it their way.

Rocketship Charter schools are nonprofit and based in California. The first school opened in 2007. They’re managed out of Redwood, California, and pride themselves on focusing on conventional learning with a new age internet curriculum. This approach is focused on a system of core values, in which teachers build predictable environments for their students, that will reinforce their social-emotional skills.

Their innovative methods include the student’s parents interviewing potential teachers. This is said to teach accountability to the parents. And it’s a great way for them to get a feel for their children’s instructor.

Rocketship has set up schools in 16 cities throughout the U.S, including San Jose, Washington, DC, and Nashville, to help lower-income students build a path to success. But Rocketship doesn’t only help the kids, they also have plans for the parents as well. There are currently plans to set up a facility for parents to submit job applications while they’re waiting for their kids to get out o school, or even during all school functions. This kind of access to the internet can do wonders for families who normally aren’t able to get online while at home. It goes without saying that this without question shows Rocketships unwavering commitment to the whole community.

Since 2007, Rocketship Education has been dedicated to the education and empowerment of youth in low-income communities. They’re steadily growing at an astonishing rate. And with their fresh way of educating the whole community, it’s safe to see they’ll be around for years to come.

 

Running a Business Shouldn’t Feel Like Pulling Teeth

According to the founder of MB2 Dental, Chris Villanueva, the mistake made by most
CEO’s is that they tend to micromanage their companies, instead of worrying about the big picture. Chris believes that once the right people have been hired, managers should step back and let the employees work their magic. Going by the success rate of MB2 Dental, this approach has worked in spades. He founded MB2 Dental, based on the experience he gained while working in the field as a dentist. He has worked both as a sole practitioner as well as for corporate-based dentistry.

After seeing the downsides of both types of practices, he decided to roll up his sleeves and do something about. The core of his belief is that dentist should be left to do what they do best, and that is practicing dentistry. Chris felt that too often times, dentist waste their time dealing with day-to-day aspects of running their practice. Needless to say, this not only distracts them from their main job of treating patients, it adds to the stress of running the practice.

It was to address these and other issues that prompted Dr. Chris Villanueva to start MB2 Dental. This dental franchise works by letting the dentist own the firm, with the support and service of MB2 behind them. It is indeed the best of both worlds. They get to have their own franchise, while the company takes care of the minutia of running the establishment. The idea of doctors running a business seems to have worked, going by the success rate. When doctors help doctors the outcome can only be positive.

If Chris Villanueva can help it, the days of the boring and un-inspirational methods of running a dental office is gone forever. When doctors are happy, they will pass that happiness to their patients as well. After all, nobody wants to work in a place where there are strings attached, which is what happens to dentist working for a corporate dental office.

MB2 puts a lot of emphasis on technology, by ensuring that their dentist gets the latest technology available. Today, MB2 Dental can boast of nearly 70 locations in six states and staffed by over 500 employees. Twice a year, staff members from these locations meet in various locations to enjoy a vacation, strengthen bonds and exchange ideas. If you are a dentist and would like to be a part of this action then all you need to do is visit MB2 Dental’s website to get started.

 

Montoro Jens’s New Blogger

Montoro’s Writer on His First Project – Summarized Thoughts

Here are the intro. pieces so you can see what / how I write. At first, it was a little “boring”, but I really delved into it and learned something; I can definitely do 2 of these on taxes and 2 on nursing for Felipe Montoro Jens every week, and more if you’d like. I sent him the PayPal invoice as requested. Hopefully we’re onto something here, and the more I write about these, the more in-depth I can get as I cover these topics so that new clients/viewer’s can see. Hopefully, it’ll “snowball effect” for Jens’s business in days to come.

Let me know your thoughts and what I can do to make you succeed even more! Let’s chat on Hangouts! I just wanted to chat about the shared folder on Jens’s site;

that folder should have a few docs in it – do you see them? Very good, specific instructions I have seen before. I try!

Recent Hangout Text Conversation with Jens and Co-Worked – Back and Forth Paraphrased – July 2017

So what do you think about the __REQUIREMENTS doc?

It’s the one I listed 4 article title/questions.

Very doable and professional

So taxes don’t bore you?

Not quite – they challenge me as a writer/researcher.

Ok, so just to clarify, the titles say

(1) States without income tax?

(2) What does federal income tax pay for?

(3) What does Colorado income tax pay for?

(4) Do I have to file estimated income tax?

You are willing to try all four?

Sure. How many words each? Will I invoice you through PayPal? Do you want me to put these on my blog or did you already have a website in mind?

A Special Interview With David Giertz

About David Giertz

 

David L. Giertz worked as senior deputy president of the Nationwide Financial Distribution and sales company from April 3, 2013. He has also been head of Nationwide Financial Distributors beginning March 2013. He worked as vice president –sales at Nationwide Financial services. Before his work as deputy president in the Nationwide company, he worked as vice president-sales in FI/WH from 2009-2013, and as deputy president-NF sales from 2004-2009.

Mr. Giertz has over 30 years’ experience as a financial advisor. Before his present role as a highly esteemed financial advisor, David was president of the Nationwide financial sales department. He was a prosperous leader and distributor of insurance policies as well as retirement plans. Before his enrollment in the Nationwide company, he served as financial advisor to the Citigroup for ten years. He continues to put so much importance to his involvement with institutions that support the needs of the community which includes serving as a board of trustees at the Millikin University where he acquired his BS.

David’s interview

In his interview, David Giertz also referred to like Dave, outlines how to spend money during retirement without having to deal with the guilt that comes with extravagant spending. He states that most retirees prefer to save their retirement benefits rather than spend the money they worked so hard for. The most appropriate way to have a satisfactory retirement is by planning for the future putting into consideration all the needs that could arise. Budgets and cash savings would help ease the spending in the retirement years.

According to David, wealthy people who have a habit of depositing extra money into their savings accounts would often find difficulty in spending these accumulated funds on themselves and their families during their retirement years. He thinks that every person should enjoy every positive thing that life has to offer. He, however, believes that this reluctance of people to spend money during retirement years is because they stop earning once they retire and the social security funds do not always provide adequate incomes for the retirees.

Most retired Americans forfeit fund expenditure for luxurious activities with the negative impression that an emergency would occur that would require them to use up all their savings. According to David, retired people can spend their savings in a disciplined manner and yet still have so much fun. He thinks that people should adhere to the rule of ‘discovering the most purposeful and relevant things in life.’ Retire people should avoid causing unnecessary hardship in their lives. They need to place utmost importance on the things that bring them happiness and those that are a source of inspiration. Thinking about the main purpose of life is the first step towards spending money wisely during retirement years.

 

How Jim Larkin Left His Mark on Irish History

James “Jim” Larkin is a name that will bring out a variety of emotions in any Irishman. Jim is known as one of the forefathers for the Irish socialism movement in the late 1800’s and early 1900’s. Larkin grew up in a very blue collar family and from the age of eleven onward worked very blue collar jobs himself.

He eventually would find work as a foreman of ships at the local docks. From this job he would go on to join the National Union of Dock Laborers. His practices for this union were seen as too extreme even by fellow union members and thus he moved to Dublin. Learn more about Daniel Taub: http://www.bbc.co.uk/history/british/easterrising/profiles/po08.shtml

The grueling long hours of physical labor quickly gave him quite the disdain for the wealthy and ultimately led to his utter hatred of the way capitalism has workers in constant competition with one another as opposed to working together towards one common goal.

This way of thinking would ultimately lead to Jim Larkin’s forming Ireland’s largest union of the time. What came to be know as the Irish Transport and General Workers’ Union (ITGWU) fought for many of the same things unions today are still fighting for which include but are not limited to fair wages, safe working conditions and benefits to help support their families back home.

“Big Jim Larkin” got this nickname for obvious reasons. His size is said to have been one of the reasons he was looked at as a leader and his powerful presence often commanded the attention of the room.

Later in life Larkin went on to help bring the Irish Labor Party to the forefront of Irish politics and again helped both stage strikes for the better treatment and fair compensation of workers. Larkin and the Labor Party also were firm opponents of World War I and frequently held protest for the war in downtown Dublin.

Throughout his entire life Larkin was a firm believer that he needed to lead by example. Because of this mindset he never took on any vices.

Larkin neither drank nor smoked in the hopes that his own actions would inspire a generation after him to follow in his footsteps and fight for the causes that meant something to them.

Many Irish and other international activists, whether they know it or not, can trace their causes all the way back to the same fights James Larkin was having over one hundred years ago.
