Communication And Connectivity Are Class Dojo’s Specialty

Communication has always been a critical factor in a student’s learning. Effective communication is needed from all parties as well, students, parents, and teachers. The healthier the communication, the more everyone can stay connected and involved in the education process. Teachers are able to engage their students better when there is good communication and parents are involved with what they are doing.

Class Dojo is an innovative app that is changing the way students learn in the classroom. Instead of focusing on teaching children new things each day, Class Dojo helps students communicate better each day. Parents that take an active involvement with their child’s learning are proven to have better results in their schoolwork and are much less likely to fall behind. By being connected to the app, parents can keep an eye on their children while they are in school and see their overall progress. They can also contact their child’s teacher directly through the app, making communication much easier for parents and teachers when it comes to discussing a student’s schoolwork.

Sam Chaudhary and Liam Don decided to focus on communication because they saw that there was a major need for it in most classrooms, especially for young students. They released their platform in 2011 for free to all teachers and students and it is still free today. Ample amounts of funding and donations have been able to keep the program going strong and even growing steadily as well.

Thousands of classrooms all over the United States have incorporated the Class Dojo system, but now classrooms all over the world are getting to use the technology as well. This level of communication and connection for students is creating a better schooling community that kids can not only progress in but enjoy as well. All that is required to take part in Class Dojo is a smart device and an internet connection. No personal information is required so it is completely safe for users, especially children.

Waiakea Water and the Secret to Fitness

These days are filled with people who are looking for ways to become more fit. There are a ton of people who struggle with their health and try so many different diets. One thing that seems to be doing a little more harm than good is the fat acceptance movement. While it is true that some people have genetics that make it a little harder to lose weight, there are some principles that apply even to some of the people who have a harder time with their weight. One of these principles relates to drinking enough water to get the weight right.

The type of water that people should drink is Waiakea Water. One of the reasons that it is important for people to drink this type of water is that it has electrolytes. This is important for people who are living an active lifestyle. One thing that happens in a more active lifestyle is that people often sweat. When they sweat, they also lose some of their electrolytes in their sweat. Therefore, they would have to make sure that they are replenishing their electrolytes. Once they lose enough electrolytes, then they are going to have a hard time functioning.

Another issue that people have when it comes to their fitness is that they are going to have to watch the acidity of their diet. Waiakea makes it easier for people to do so. The pH level of Waiakea is almost 9.0. This puts it in the alkaline area of water. Therefore, it is going to help with the body’s natural pH balance. This helps the body fight off certain potential issues such as cancer. This Hawaii volcanic water makes it easier for people to improve their body. They will also increase their confidence levels as they improve their fitness.

Lacey and Larkin arrested by the federal governemnt

Veteran newspaper journalists Michael Lacey and Jim Larkin have been on the wrong side with the federal government. The FBI recently arrested the two and detained for various charges involving money laundering amongst other charges. They were arrested in relation to a website they previously ran known as Backpage.com.

Although they had sold their interests in their company in 2015, there are charges which the FBI need them to answer. Initially, they were reports that they would be charged with sex trafficking through the website, but this did not appear on the official charge sheet availed to the media. Although Michael Lacey was released on recognizance, Larkin is still in detention waiting for a release trial.

Lacey and Larkin have been a prominent journalist in Arizona running various media outlets. In 1970 they launched the Phoenix New Times which went on to become one of the biggest media outlets in the country running 17 weeklies. In recent years, they have however been selling their interest in media and taking a position as advocates of the First Amendment. The two have also been fighting for the rights of the minorities in the country. Read more: Lacey and Larkin Frontera Fund and Michael Lacey | Crunchbase

They have a foundation known as the Frontera Fund which funds the activities of human, civil and immigrants’ rights in the state of Arizona. Michel Lacey and Jim Larkin have been on at loggerheads with the government in multiple occasions. Most of the times they have triumphed since the allegations they face are untrue and cannot stand the test of the law.

The arrest of Jim Larkin and Michael Lacey comes after they launched a new website to advocate for the First Amendment. “The Front Page Confidential” is all about exposing the illegalities committed by government agencies in the country.

The latest attempt by the government to arrest the two and shut down Backpage.com is seen as an attempt to shut them up. However, the two maintain that the action taken by the federal government is illegal and unconstitutional and they will be ready to challenge the accusations. They add that this is a blatant violation of the freedom of speech and it is sad those the government is trying to oppress the media in this century.

Lacey and Larkin are known for their philanthropic work especially in Arizona where they have been fighting discrimination of the minorities- mostly the immigrants. The state has for many years been notorious with cases of human rights violations.

Lacey and Larkin have tried to fight off such cases by sponsoring the activities of human rights groups in the state. The two have been victims of human rights discrimination, and they would not be happy to see anyone else be taken through torture as they did. The two were arrested by notorious Sheriff of Maricopa County Joe Arpaio who for many years ruled the county with an iron fist.

Lacey and Larkin are known for the prolonged court battles they have had with Joe Arpaio as they seek justice for themselves and the numerous immigrants who were tortured under his watch.
