I am a teacher in a Brooklyn charter school where Keith Mann has offered his time and energy on behalf of our students. He is a kind man who has created a scholarship fund for students in our community, and I am quite happy to see our students succeeding with motivation provided by his scholarship program. This article explains our experience in motivating students with Keith’s scholarship.
#1: The Dream Of College
We want all our students to go to college if they can, and there are quite a few people who are looking at the Scholarship for Professional Achievement as their way out of the neighborhood. I ask children every day if they want to go to college, and they are ensuring they work toward a goal of receiving the scholarship. I keep the scholarship information in my room to ensure students see what is possible.
#2: A $5000 Scholarship Offer
The $5000 scholarship offer from Keith will help a graduating student every year, and I am delighted to see a student realize the dream of college when they leave our building. Keith Mann has offered the scholarship every year to our charter school students because he believes in their potential, and I share the scholarship information often due to its power in our community.
#3: A Fully-Funded Scholarship
A fully-funded scholarship program will last as long as the Mann family chooses to support it. They have offered quite a lot of money to help children in our community, and I tell children every year that they may one day win this scholarship so they may go off to college. My belief in their work is strong, and I know children who are close to graduating college on the program.
It is quite simple to apply for the scholarship, and I ask children to do so every year. They are working hard for a better future, and I want to see their hard work rewarded.

The Fabletics brand has been around for a while, and many people are interested in what this athleisure clothing brand offers. It has become something that has managed to outshine a lot of the other companies that are selling athletic wear. The company has been in business for less than a decade, but it is making strong moves.
The profit margins are good on Twitter, but the Internet crowd is saturated. The only real way to grow is to build brick and mortar stores and get discovered by a new audience.
Fortunately, Kate Hudson knows about this. That is why she is bringing more stores to customers. This is the most proactive way to get customers to discover Fabletics. Many people see the commercials on television, but this may not compel them to go to stores. If they have not been accustomed to shopping online, one commercial is not going to change their mind. It will take some physical stores to get some people to shop if they are not accustomed to shopping online. That may be the best reason for Hudson to consider the opening of more new stores at http://www.fabletics.ca/kates-picks.htm.
Currently there are less than 10 stores, but soon there will be more than 100. That is impressive growth over the course of the next 5 years. Customers are going to get a chance to try on clothes, see a larger variety of items and get more information about the subscription services. All of this makes Fabletics one of the hottest new clothing companies for all of those that are trying to fill their wardrobe with trendy workout clothes.
Many women that buy workout clothes will be excited about working out in theory, but they may fail to carry out the task of working out on a regular basis. When people buy clothes from Fabletics that doesn’t matter. These are athleisure clothes. People that work out in these garments will often run errands and hang out in this same attire. That is what has made the brand popular. Even women that have stopped working out will still benefit from these clothes.
Kate Hudson has done a lot to make sure that the band has managed to grow. This is Fabletics that has commercials and print ads featuring Kate Hudson. It is the brand that has managed to give customers a glimpse of the type of clothing that Kate Hudson works out in. People can choose Kate’s Picks and rock the same style that she likes for their own workout routines. This is just how dedicated she is to the brand. Kate Hudson makes this brand appeal to a large array of customers. She keeps the brand interesting and very comfortable.
Though Brazil is making headlines as the host for the 2016 Olympic Games, the country is home to one of the most successful companies in South America. Taking the idea of being Earth friendly while still producing quality products has helped this family owned company reap big rewards for keeping true to a decades old philosophy; make the best possible products while keeping a low carbon footprint.
Formed in 1951, the Maluf family established Eucatex with a clear goal in mind. That goal was and still is, to create sought after products with eco-friendly materials. At first Eucatex began to work on roof tiles from the eucalyptus tree. This gave tiles a unique acoustic quality while remaining green friendly. Throughout the years Eucatex continued this trend and began to open offices throughout South America. Most recently Eucatex has begun working on a new product line of paints while establishing a forestry leasing program.
Born into the family that has helmed Eucatex since the beginning, Flavio Maluf strives to keep to the high standards set before him. Graduating with a degree in mechanical engineering from Armando Alvares Penteado (FAAP) Flavio began to study abroad. After spending a year studying business at NYU, Flavio returned home to begin work at Eucatex, where he would win many awards.
After returning back to Brazil to work at Eucatex, Flavio started work within the company as part of the production department. Through a short period of time, Flavio would switch through several different sectors throughout Eucatex. It was in 1997 when Flavio would join the executive branch before becoming the company’s president. Flavio is an innovator who has helped steered Eucatex in its current direction.
A company like Eucatex has been a true gold medal winner for Brazil. The Malufs continue to expand their catalog while working to keeping Earth friendly and simultaneously opening new factories and expanding trade to new locations. Eucatex is a true Brazilian innovator that still keeps moving forward in the industry. Be sure to follow Flavio on Twitter @Flavio_Maluf.

Kabbalah has been a religious philosophy for a long period of time, and now there are organizations that teach this philosophy to the public. At first, it was a philosophy within Judaism, but the philosophy spread throughout other Abrahamic religions, including both Christianity and Islam. The philosophy is also studied by a sizable number of people, and well known individuals have studied it. In fact, a number of celebrities have become quite well versed on Kabbalah philosophy.
Kabbalah philosophy speaks about different subjects within religion. Some parts of Kabbalah are related to very profound, spiritual questions about the nature of the afterlife and God. Unlike traditional many religious philosophies, there are various ideas proposed about the nature of the afterlife and God. However, there are other parts of Kabbalah that are very clear cut rules about Earthly existence. Some of these rules differ somewhat from the philosophies that are taught in traditional religious philosophies, but the rules that are taught in Kabbalah philosophy do not run counter to the values taught by either Christianity, Judaism, or Islam. Despite this, some religious sects don’t let those within them study Kabbalah philosophy.
One place that people can learn about Kabbalah is through Kabbalah Centre, which operates worldwide. This organization offers classes on the philosophy that can be taken both offline. However, there are online courses for those that are not located near an offline location of the Kabbalah Centre.
There are many locations of the Kabbalah Centre. In fact, these locations are located on different continents. While there are a number of locations within the United States, they also operate in quite a number of different countries throughout Europe, South America, and The Middle East. These locations are in a variety of different cities in these areas. The school is seen as very reputable, and they are one of the most widely known places to learn Kabbalah philosophy. Not only have there been many students with the school, but a number of celebrities took classes through the school. Visit the Kabbalah Centre on their website to learn more.
Class Dojo has been quickly implemented in the classroom as a quick and easy way to communicate with parents about everything that is going on inside the classroom. Some of the many features of the APP included is a messaging system to instantly communicate with parents. This system allows teachers to contact parents all hours of the day without a phone call. This can be especially useful in cases of school closure due to power outages or other events which require the parents to be instantly notified. Rather than relying on trying to call them during work and “catch them” and 20+ other parents at the same time. One of the other useful tools of the APP is the classroom update. This allows teachers to take photos of what the children are doing in the classroom and post it to classdojo similar to facebook. This way parents can actually see what the children are doing rather than asking the same old question, “how was school today? Do anything interesting?” and receiving the boring answer, “no not really.” Now parents can see exactly what their children are doing and have better communication with the teacher. This APP can also be used to send reminders for events or last minute changes, “Sorry, instead of green please wear a red shirt for the school program tomorrow.” The APP is quick and easy to use. The best part though it is free with school budget cuts it is important for school districts to take advantage. There is absolutely no reason for any teacher to not use Class Dojo. The children love it they get to choose their own avatar, message the teacher questions any hour of the day, and receive positive reinforcement with acknowledgment from a point system when they are doing what they are supposed to be doing in the classroom. The parents can also see that their children are doing a good job from the point system with exact precision, “Oh at 10:22 Johnny was rewarded a point for helping others. What were they doing at the time? O making a cutout and Johnny helped a classmate cut theirs for them.” This APP brings the parents into the classroom and helps build a better more positive relationship.

There are many natural ingredients that hold benefits to people all over the world. One, in particular, has made quite an impact. Shea butter, is a moisturizing ingredient that is all natural, pure and earth grown. Though, it has many different uses throughout the world, and they are definitely worth talking about.
Shea butter is derived from a fruit off of an African Shea Tree. This tree can be found in Africa, of course. The seeds contained inside the fruit have a fat butter-like substance, which is the shea butter. Everything about the fruit is very much edible, and enjoyed in different countries. The seeds and fats are commonly used in cooking as well, surprisingly enough. Did you know that shea butter can protect you from the sun? It also helps the skin make natural collagen to promote an anti-aging effect. Collagen is what is injected into peoples skin through botox to help lines and wrinkles disappear. You don’t need artificial ingredients or procedures to have anti-aging benefits. Shea butter can help you with that! If you are pregnant or have been in the past, you’ve probably used a shea butter lotion. This is because it helps the skin gain more elasticity, thus reducing the appearances of stretch marks and unsightly scars. Shea butter can also be found in many lip balms. It is most known for its moisturization qualities, and loved for the abilities to create much softer skin.
Eugenia Shea is a brand that prides themselves on using only purely natural shea butter, directly from the African Shea Tree. This brand is trusted to be an honest one that provides only the most organic shea butter there is, and uses it in different strengths for their three formulas.
The first formula is a pregnancy strength formula, which pretty much says it all in the title. Best used during and post pregnancy, this will help you to not have as many stretch marks, which can be hard to get rid of once formed. The everyday strength formula gives you soft, smooth skin daily and is very dependable. The dermatological is more for rough, patchy, severely dry skin that is otherwise hard to moisturize. These three formulas have really become popular for being great products in many different scenarios.
Billionaire investor Soros, the chairman of Soros Fund Management and the Open Society Foundation, has been a vocal supporter of Western assistance to Ukraine.
The country was thrown into chaos in 2014. Political upheaval ushered in a new government in Kiev and a Russian invasion led to the loss of Crimea to Moscow. Russian-backed separatists in eastern Ukraine unleashed intense violence.
Given these political and military crises which upended much of the country’s establishment, including its businesses and it was no surprise the Ukrainian economy faltered badly. By early 2015, according to Soros’ commentary in the New York Review of Books, the country was experience a balance of payments crisis, a public debt crisis, and a banking crisis.
Beginning at the onset of the crisis, George Soros was a frequent commenter. He repeatedly used his public profile both to condemn Russian aggression in Ukraine and to argue for a much stronger European response to the crisis.
As early as February 2014, Soros was writing op-ed pieces urging a unified European response to the crisis, noting how Russia had adopted a much more strategic posture towards Ukraine than the member states of the European Union had done. In particular, Soros argued that powerful German Chancellor Angela Merkel needed to act decisively to address the crisis.
While Soros continued to urge European action on the Ukrainian crisis throughout 2014, including this May 2014 article, he was particular vocal in early 2015, when the economic crisis reached a boiling point.
George Soros – Forbes
Perhaps his most poignant exhortation, co-written with the French philosopher Bernard Henri-Levy, waxed poetic about the birth of a “new Ukraine” in the wake of the Maidan uprising and Russian aggression. Addressing the need for an immediate tranche of $15 billion in aid from Europe, Soros argued that foreign support was required to give Ukrainian leaders the space to implement radical reforms.
Beyond that $15 billion tranche, Soros strongly supported a much larger package. This proposal, outlined in the New York Review of Books, was designed to create a stable situation going forward, allowing Ukraine to become desirable to investors instead of barely staying afloat.
At the same time, Soros recommended technical support to match the financial commitment. Such support would have, in Soros’ view, allowed Ukraine to apply the $50 billion investment more effectively, pruning the size of government and emphasizing government services that created space for businesses to grow and create jobs.
More than simply assist Ukraine, Soros endorsed Ñ despite somewhat mixed feelings Ñ sanctions against Russia for its’ aggressive posture towards Ukraine.
When Soros’ March 2015 policy recommendations were not heeded Ñ only a small tranche of funds was released, the country experienced dramatic pressure on its currency, and Russia and Ukraine reached the Minsk agreement and he again turned to his pen.
In an October 2015 piece, Soros urged German Chancellor Merkel to “do whatever it takes” to bolster the new Ukrainian government. As he had argued throughout the crisis, Soros again made the case that this demanded greater financial and technical support.

The name of this business is Lime Crime and like the name, Doe Deere sells products that catch people’s eyes. Doe Deere decided on the name of Lime Crime not only due to the fact that she loves bright colors, but also due to the fact that she is not afraid to stand out to her customers in the world of business.
During this interview, Doe Deere echoed a point she’d made on the Lime Crime Facebook, when she stated that her interest in makeup is a result of her creativity and imagination that has continued on over the years. At the early age of nine years old, Doe Deere distinctly remembers playing with her friends and applying makeup to the faces of her friends. Though she was not the makeup artist that she is now, she has always loved bright colors. During her childhood, Doe Deere also remembers pairing the bright makeup with as many bright clothes and bright accessories that she could find. In a way, Doe Deere felt like she cheated with her career purely due to the fact that she loves what she does.
During her interview, Doe Deere also discussed her decision to make a product that was strictly an internet-based product. Doe Deere stated that this was for the purpose of getting instant feedback from her customers.

Doe Deere has many plans for the future and hopes to expand her business even more. See more pictures of new Lime Crime products on Tumblr, or follow Doe Deere’s official blog for updates.
