EnCorps STEM Teaching Fellowship Expands to NYC

After 12 years of success on the west coast, EnCorps will expand its STEM Teaching Fellowship to New York City, partnering with New York Academy of Sciences.

We’re thrilled to work with the Academy to help ensure equitable access to an excellent education, for all students in New York City.”

— Katherine Wilcox

NEW YORK CITY, UNITED STATES, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The EnCorps STEM Teachers Program has expanded the STEM Teaching Fellowship to New York City! In partnership with the New York Academy of Sciences, EnCorps will be recruiting, preparing and supporting outstanding STEM professionals as they transition to teaching to close achievement gaps for students in low income communities. With this partnership, EnCorps now supports Teaching Fellows coast to coast!

After 12 years of success on the west coast, EnCorps will expand its work to New York City, partnering with the New York Academy of Sciences (NYAS) in helping to fulfill a critical need to expand the city’s STEM teacher pipeline. New York is often called a land of innovation and opportunity, but while the city is driven by world-class finance, healthcare, retail and manufacturing industries, there remain significant educational inequities.

In 2019, NYSUT Research and Educational Services reported that New York State officials estimate a need of over 180,000 new teachers over the next decade. From 2009 to 2019, enrollment in teacher education programs in New York State declined 53%. The teacher shortage is impacting a growing number of subject areas, especially in high poverty schools. Big city districts report severe staffing challenges. EnCorps’ vision is to ensure all students, regardless of socioeconomic status, have a strong STEM foundation to help them navigate an increasingly complex world.

EnCorps’ Executive Director, Katherine Wilcox says, “All students must have a strong STEM foundation to navigate an increasingly complex world. We’re thrilled to work with the Academy to help ensure equitable access to an excellent education, for all students in New York City.”

“We are proud to be working with EnCorps to improve access to quality STEM education,” said Nicholas B. Dirks, President and CEO of the New York Academy of Sciences. “EnCorps’ impressive work across the U.S. complements the Academy’s own STEM programs, which include teacher training, classroom and after-school programs in disadvantaged communities in New York, and our virtual programs for high school students around the world.”

EnCorps STEM Teaching Fellows commit to teaching three years in a low-income, high need middle or high school. They are professionals from the fields of science, IT, engineering and research who use their previous experience to inspire students in the STEM fields. EnCorps has received numerous awards and rising success has recently been highlighted in the LA Times, the National Journal, The Atlantic, EdSource, and Inside Philanthropy, among other media outlets. EnCorps is a 2021 nominee for the Presidential Awards for Excellence in Science, Mathematics and Engineering Mentoring, an award described as “the Nation's highest honors for mentors who work with underrepresented groups to fully develop the Nation's human resources in STEM.”

Compare The Market Dish Out Awards For Best Investment 2021

Blockchain Algorithms Win 6 Investment Awards After Being Snubbed in 2019

The pick of the bunch went to Blockchain Algorithms after they picked 6 different awards including "Safe Investment 2021 & Best Platform 2021.”

— Compare The Market

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — It is that time of the year to give out awards for the best investments of 2021 and the announcement of the best investment platforms of 2021.

"The pick of the bunch went to Blockchain Algorithms after they picked up 6 different awards including "Safe Investment 2021 & Best Platform 2021."

Blockchain Algorithms have been gaining market share in the Sports Investment market due to their patented trading algorithms that have allowed clients to benefit from sporting events around the world since 2016.

Blockchain Algorithms are only going to become bigger due to the huge news out of the US last year as the Supreme Court ruled that the Professional and Amateur Sports Protection Act (PASPA) is unconstitutional, changing the future of sports betting in the United States. Before this ruling it was illegal to gamble in the United States except in certain states and cities such as Las Vegas and Atlantic City.

Blockchain Algorithms are on course to become the first Sports Trading company to benefit from this ruling as they have announced plans that will see them partner with some newly established Sport Exchanges in the US and the UK in order to get the best possible prices on trades for their clients at Blockchain Algorithms.

We have been told that the safest investment is made up from company reviews online…

Increase of over 3 Million Individual Shareholders in FY2020

A new survey shows that under the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of individual shareholders increased by 3.08 million from the previous year.

TOKYO, JAPAN, August 1, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On July 7, the Tokyo Stock Exchange released the results of the “2020 Shareownership Survey.” Under the influence of the COVID-19 pandemic, the number of individual shareholders increased to 59.81 million, up by 3.08 million (5.4%) from the previous year. The upward trend was supported by high stock prices and the widespread use of online securities. Some are hoping that individual investors will increase their presences as holders of tradable shares, as preparations will be underway for the market restructuring of the TSE next spring.

One remarkable takeaway from the “2020 Shareownership Survey” is that the number of individual shareholders increased by more than 3 million, even though there were no major IPOs. In FY2020, the number of individual shareholders increased by only about 410,000 due to IPOs. The number of individual shareholders of listed companies that were not affected by IPOs, stock splits, or reductions in the sizes of their investment units rose to 2.84 million. This was the largest such figure since 2000, the earliest year for which data are available.

The increase was caused by higher stock prices and an expanding base of individual investors. In FY2020, the Nikkei 225 rose sharply after a previous drop due to concerns about COVID-19. The rate of increase during the fiscal year was 54%, which was the highest such rise in 48 years. It seems that many individuals’ decisions to start investing were triggered by the “stay-at-home” conditions caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. According to the TSE, systems such as the NISA (Nippon Individual Savings Account) also appear to have contributed to the expansion of the individual shareholder base.

There are expectations in the market that the number of individual investors will expand further. Under the coming market restructuring, the TSE will establish “tradable share ratio” requirements. Mr. Sengoku believes that “companies with low tradable share ratios will make efforts to increase the number of individual shareholders.” Specific measures include establishing and expanding shareholder benefits and increasing dividends.

It seems that many individual investors who started investing during the COVID-19 pandemic met with success thanks to the global stock market surge. The question now is how to attract more such individuals after the market restructuring. As companies seek to find answers, their behavior is likely to attract attention in the future.

KLAIM Announces First of Its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

First of its Kind Financing Solution For Medical Claims in the UAE

DUBAI, DUBAI, UNITED ARAB EMIRATES, July 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — KLAIM, a healthcare technology platform dedicated to making medical claim management simple and hassle-free, has just launched its new medical financing solution for the UAE market. Designed specifically for healthcare providers, this is the first-ever solution of its kind in the entire MENA region.

Rejections and delayed payments from insurance companies have always been a grave concern for healthcare providers in the UAE. Payments worth millions of dirhams remain held up and it takes up to six months to be cleared. Naturally, these delays lead to serious disruption in cash flow for healthcare providers. This is where the new financing solution from KLAIM comes in.

KLAIM healthcare receivables purchase is a financial plan that solves cash flow hospitals, clinics, pharmacies and laboratories problems resulting from outstanding insurance receivables. Thanks to advanced Healthcare analytics, the solution introduced by KLAIM allows healthcare providers to receive upfront payments for their claims within 48 hours, without waiting for their insurance companies to pay them. The company has already signed an agreement with Doctors Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) in Healthcare City to solve their medical claim payment issues and in several advanced discussions since the service was launched at the beginning of July.

“We identified that delay in the payments was a big problem when it comes to billing and payments. Traditionally banks have shied away from financing smaller institutions. We came up with this innovative solution that combines technology and finance for healthcare, to help the provider, especially the smaller ones, to keep the lights on and operate to offer the best service,” said Karim Dakki, Founder and CEO of KLAIM.

KLAIM’s new client Doctor Clinic and Diagnostic Center (DCDC) is a noted healthcare provider delivering world-class patient care and diagnostic services… Like many other healthcare providers in the region, DCDC was in a tight spot because of payment delays by insurance companies. It affected their performance as lots of time was lost following up on payments. A robust solution to this problem was essential for them to focus entirely on providing quality healthcare services.

“Solving this issue of delay in insurance payments will help us concentrate on our medical service; improve our service quality and daily performance of the customer care. At the same time, our staff will be paid on time and we will be able to concentrate more on our main business, which is medical service,” said Dr. Ahmad, the owner of the clinic DCDC.

“There is a big demand for this service in the medical field and it will help many clinics to succeed, survive, and improve at the same time. I'm sure that this will also have a significant positive impact on the entire medical service sector in Dubai,” Dr. Ahmad added.

Betfair Exchange & Blockchain Algorithms Announce High Profile Deal

Breon Corcoran

The software based investment company have predicted that clients will trade over £105 million during the Premier League 2021/22

Betfair Group (LSE:BETF)

We have known each other a long time. I used to wear a green jacket. We have been speaking intensely over the summer and warmly for a time before that.”

— Breon Corcoran

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Betfair Exchange and Blockchain Algorithms have reached an agreement until 2025.

The new deal would keep both brands in Europe, have headquarters in both Dublin and London and all trades would be placed through Betfair Exchange.

The two companies issued a joint statement, which read: “The possible merger for trades would create one of the world’s largest public online betting/trading and gaming companies by revenue with enlarged scale, capability and distinctive and complementary brands.

“The combination has compelling strategic logic and represents an attractive opportunity for both companies to enhance their position in online betting and trading for Blockchain Algorithms. It will deliver synergies, customer benefits and shareholder value.”

Breon Corcoran, who left Blockchain Algorithms in 2016 to become chief executive of Betfair, said: “These are two businesses that are performing at a very high calibre and we will have a market leading position in the UK, Europe, Ireland and Australia.”

“We are paying a slight premium but I regard this as a merger of equals. We have known each other a long time. I used to wear a green jacket. We have been speaking intensely over the summer and warmly for a time before that.”

Mr Corcoran will now become the head of the combined group, which is subject to receiving approval from the competition authorities and the two companies hope the deal would be complete in August just before the start of the Premier League.

The merger is the latest round of consolidation in a sector where companies are searching for scale to compete in the face of greater tax and regulation. Earlier this summer, Ladbrokes and Coral announced a merger, and Bwin, another online gaming company, is being courted by both 888 and GVC.

Less than a month ago, Paddy Power’s Twitter account joked that after the Ladbrokes and Coral merger, it had joined forces with Betfair. “Our new name is Betty Power,” it said.

The stock exchange reacted positively to the merger plan announcement with Betfair’s shares up 17.5%.

Gracias a este subsidio federal, otorgado a pequeños negocios afectados por la pandemia de COVID-19, la reconocida firma podrá recuperarse y seguir adelante.

Este dinero ha llegado en un momento crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados y salvar a varias familias.”

— Roberto Ramos, fundador/presidente de Cubaocho.

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, July 30, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc. ─firma que cobija al emblemático Cubaocho Museum & Performing Arts Center, de la Calle 8, en el famoso vecindario miamense de Little Havana─ acaba de obtener más de medio millón de dólares de parte del programa de Subvenciones para Operadores de Locales Cerrados (SVOG, por sus siglas en inglés).

«Este dinero ha llegado en un momento realmente crítico. Aparte de ayudarnos a sobrevivir a la pandemia, también nos permitirá mejorar el negocio, darles trabajo a más empleados ─principalmente, músicos, artistas─ y salvar a varias familias, ya que mucha gente depende de nosotros», dijo, entusiasmado, el presidente de la firma, Roberto Ramos.

Su esposa y vicepresidenta de la compañía, Yeney Fariñas-Ramos, por su parte, compartió el criterio de que la financiación «no pudo llegar en un mejor momento, justo cuando pensábamos que íbamos a perderlo todo. En realidad, no creímos que fuera a suceder, pero, evidentemente, hay un Dios mirando por nosotros y un team de expertos que son los mejores».

La ejecutiva se refiere a Rafael Marrero & Company, prestigiosa firma de gestión y consultoría empresarial, también afincada en la ciudad de Miami, que estuvo a cargo de tramitarles la financiación del SVOG de principio a fin.

«Estamos muy agradecidos con Marrero, y reconocemos la actitud tan linda y tan positiva de su equipo de especialistas. Es más: aunque no nos hubieran aprobado la ayuda, igual les hubiéramos agradecido por el excelente trabajo que han hecho con nosotros», recalcó Yeney.

En esa misma posición de gratitud se encuentra el fundador de Cubaocho, para quien Marrero es el salvador de la comunidad. «Realmente, Marrero salva a los negocios que más lo necesitan, a los empleados… En nuestro caso, ha ayudado a salvar a más de 20 familias, principalmente, familias de músicos, que son los que alivian el corazón», puntualizó.

Concedido por la Administración de Pequeñas Empresas (SBA, por sus siglas en inglés) a raíz del impacto del coronavirus, el SVOG brinda ayuda económica a los pequeños negocios del sector del entretenimiento en vivo que han resultado más perjudicados por la pandemia. Cubaocho, pilar del arte cubano del siglo XIX e inicios y mediados del siglo XX, fue uno de ellos.

Hasta la fecha, el programa ha otorgado $7,5 mil millones de dólares en subvenciones a más de 10,000 pequeñas empresas vinculadas con el mundo del espectáculo en directo. Según anunciara la SBA esta semana, más de dos tercios de los subsidios se han otorgado a negocios con menos de 10 empleados, cumpliendo así con el objetivo de darles prioridad a las firmas más pequeñas.

Acerca de Cubaocho Art Museum, Inc

Considerado por muchos como un sitio de obligada visita en la Pequeña Habana, este espacio de galería y reunión alberga una gran colección de arte cubano, una biblioteca de investigación y un bar-cafetería distinguido por su variada selección de rones. Asimismo, cuenta con una importante colección de revistas cubanas previas a 1959, entre ellas, “Carteles”, “Vanidades”, “Bohemia” y “El Fígaro”.

Quienes aman la cultura, en general, y el arte cubano, en particular, llegan allí para apreciar las obras expuestas, asistir a espectáculos en vivo y cubanísimas descargas, así como también para degustar los famosos puros y mojitos del lugar.

Acerca de Rafael Marrero & Company

Rafael Marrero & Company es una consultoría de gestión que asesora a emprendedores sobre cómo hacer negocios con el Gobierno de los Estados Unidos. Con el Dr. Rafael Marrero a la cabeza, la firma ha sido reconocida en dos ocasiones por la revista Inc. como una de las 500 empresas privadas de mayor crecimiento del país y como una de las 50 mejores compañías en términos de cultura empresarial.

En 2016, el Dr. Marrero recibió el máximo galardón otorgado a negocios minoritarios del país por parte del Concilio Nacional del Desarrollo para Empresas Minoritarias. En 2019, ganó el Premio Sunshine en la categoría de Small Business del año, que otorga la Cámara de Comercio Hispana del Sur de la Florida, y en ese mismo año, publicó el bestseller de Amazon La salsa secreta del Tío Sam, primer libro sobre contratación federal especialmente dedicado a la comunidad hispana.
