Tutor Program Continues Growth, Reaches More Students Than Ever

Tutoring has become a great help for students especially during times when learning becomes too difficult. Luckily, there are always people like those at Bee Academic Tutoring who are there to help students out and the students, on their side, seemed to not mind the help. In fact, the number of students looking for tutorial services continues to increase.

The same thing is happening for Bryce Beatty and the tutor program he is with that is continuously growing, reaching out to more students than ever.
When Bryce was in high school, he was focused on chemistry, advanced placement physics, biology and honors, all the while playing for his high school basketball team.

That all changed, however, when he came to Grand Canyon University back in 2012. He no longer wore his jersey and mitts. Instead, he donned latex gloves and an apron. Bryce turned his attention solely to Biology, emphasizing on pre-med. But even with his outstanding science background back in high school, Bryce knew that he would still need to get a tutor in Chemistry because of his chosen career pursuit.

Upon his arrival, he immediately sought tutoring help from the Center for Learning and Advancement (CLA).

Now, Bryce is in his junior year and has also become one of GCU’s top science tutors. In fact, he helped the University leaders in the restructuring of the tutoring system and has greatly assisted in its success.

Last 2013, GCU established the Learning Lounge in Alhambra High, that used to be an underperforming school. It is an afterschool program meant to help students for free. It is a welcoming, safe and fun place where students can work on their skills in reading, writing and math. They could either be in a one-on-on or in a group setting alongside the tutors of GCU. Afterwards, the program was extended to other high schools like Phoenix Union High and the Alhambra Elementary School districts.

Dr. Joe Veres, the director of student development and outreach, says that the University wanted to establish personal connections with the students in a bright environment where students and tutors would also get to enjoy free snacks and drinks.

Historic Biscayne Boulevard Home Sold To Investor

Homes can be bought much faster when you seek the help of investment companies like HomeUnion Investment Properties. With a little professional help, anything can be processed much faster.

Such was the case with a historic Biscayne Boulevard Home in MiMo.
According to reports, a 2,000 square-foot house from the MiMo Boulevard Historic District was sold and has been purchased for $775, 000. The house is said to be 77 years old.

The property is estimated to be 7, 340 square-foot and located at 5631 Biscayne Boulevard just across the street from the future site of the Boulevard 57, a 107-unit condominium of Unitas Development Group.

Keyes Commercial Realty’s Tony Ullua was the broker who represented both the buyer and the seller during the process of transaction and the lucky man who managed to claim the historic home is none other than the president of Global Investments Realty himself, Joel Rodriguez.

The previous owners and sellers were hotelier couple Orlando and Gladys Valdes. This couple had already bought the Cavalier South Beach located at the 1320 Ocean Drive for an outstanding price of $12.5 million while also having purchased the Motel Blu found in 7700 Biscayne Boulevard back in 2014 for $4.2 million. The purchases were made after they sold South Beach’s Dolores and Eva hotels for a remarkable $17.5 million. In February, they have also made the decision to sell The Orchid House found at 1350 Collins Avenue for an estimated $7.5 million.
The property that was sold to Joel Rodriguez was owned by the Valdeses for about 11 years. It was sold for about $105.59 per square foot. The hotelier couple first bought the house back in 2004 at a price of $625, 000.

Ullua said that the purchase is a testament as to how aggressive the market is now saying how a lot of people had already wanted to buy it after it had been placed into contract.

There were no alterations done with the historic home, Ullua says. Everything is how it originally is.

Joel had planned to move his office there but now has decided to lease it as either a commercial or a residential property.

Experts Reveal Home Insurance Tips To Help First Timers

The first time you buy your very own home marks a significant event in your life. Owning your own house is probably one of the biggest landmarks that you can achieve. But for first time buyers, buying a home is not that easy. There are many things to consider like the contents of the house, the color, the wallpaper, the furniture. But out of all of these, probably one of the most important things to consider is home insurance. There are many insurance companies that offer home insurance Syracuse services for first time homeowners.

This is important because home insurance can help protect not only your property, but the things in it as well.

Experts have revealed just recently some home insurance tips to help out first time buyers. According to them, the insurance for buildings may be able to cover the cost for rebuilding and repairing them in the case it gets damaged or destroyed. They said that most mortgage lenders would insist that you already have buildings insurance but it would be better if you made sure.

The contents that are inside your home may not be covered by a standard buildings insurance policy. That is why you would need to have a contents policy. To protect all your belongings, you can either look for an insurance policy that combines both buildings and contents or you can look for a separate contents only policy. Either way, you must conduct some extensive research regarding these topics because it does not hurt to know a lot of things about something before you engage in them.

These experts have also advised first time buyers to always calculate the value of all their belongings very accurately because there are single value items limit to most belongings that is why you would need to consult your insurance agency for this.

The last tips that these experts have shared is to shop around and look for the best deals. Do not just rely on the opinion of your lender or other people because their choices may not be the best choice for you. Learn to search the internet and speak to a number of insurance companies.

YMCA Worker Accepts Double Challenge For Fund Raising

YMCA Worker Accepts Double Challenge For Fund Raising

A resident of Norwich, Joseph Bickerdike who is a key worker in Norfolk’s YMCA, accepts a double challenge in an effort to raise funds where in the Christian charity is the recipient.

His first challenge will be a marathon this coming April 26 which will take place in London and after a few months he will be going on a Tour de Y bike ride for a total of 360 miles.

Mr Bickerdike works at the YMCA located in central Norwich. He is assigned in the accommodation facility, John Drake House, for more than 18 months now. His work at YMCA has inspired him to join the marathon and be a member of the YMCA team which will represent England.

According to him, he has taken on a number of half-marathons before but has never tried the full marathon though it has been on the list of things he wanted to do in the future. He also shared about people’s positive view regarding the London Marathon which is considered as one of the most well-known race. Mr Bickerdike went on to express his excitement regarding the event though he knows it might be physically challenging before he even reaches 26 miles. His motivation is fueled by his desire to raise money for a great cause.

Mr Bickerdike shared his work on the YMCA Norfolk located in Norwich where he deals with supporting young people in order for them to appreciate the full potential inside of them – body, mind and spirit. These young people have experienced being homeless and he knows the money raised could be a big help to the organization.

Taking on the challenge is also his way of raising awareness and shedding light on people’s general idea of those who are receiving benefits and those who are homeless.

Mr Bickerdike is also a member of the Oak Grove Community Chapel which is also located in Norwich. After the first challenge is done, he will embark on training that will last five months so he could prepare for the Tour de Y cycle challenge which is done annually. His friends will be joining him in this challenge.

Ocean waves

House Along The Coastline Powered By Ocean Waves

When beach lovers and surfers in South Africa decided to build their homes along the coast where they can readily jump into the ocean, architects thought of ways to give new home designs for their clients. Home builders decided to give the home owners with renewable energy. The new home design is not just some solar panels hooked up in a house. Instead, it is a design that will float in the water. This new beach house is powered by the waves.

This new house design is still set to be constructed next year. The outer part of the house will be made of concrete materials and will be anchored on the ocean’s rocky coastline. The inner shell of the bunker will be made of aluminum which will be made to float in the waves.

How will this design harness power from the waves? Every time that the wave breaks, two sets of turbines located inside the house will collect kinetic energy. This energy is then transformed into electricity.

Architect Margot Krasojevics is the person behind the idea of a beach house powered by ocean’s waves. She said that she specifically used this idea in a similar way as to how surfers choreograph their movement through the waters but only not moving in this case.

The beach house will also be incorporated with solar panels. Adding wave power to the house will give it some distinct advantages. Margot pointed out that tides are more predictable when compared to wind and solar energy.

In industrial and commercial buildings, sustainable technology and the use of smarter materials are getting common. However, residential architecture innovates slowly. Most architectural works do not incorporate renewable energy and sustainability in the designs.

The architect is hoping that the tide-powered beach house will be common along the coastlines of oceans in South Africa as well as in other countries. In order to achieve this design, it is important for the engineers to work closely with the latest technology.

She adds that everything in this planet is rapidly changing when compared to a couple of years ago. Climate change affects everyone living in this planet and we should learn to adapt.

BLUE BOW

Blue Bow Campaign – To Build Awareness For Child Abuse Prevention Month

Many organization use ribbons to encourage people to show their support for a cause. Ribbons have become symbols and colors represent various causes. If you are in need of ribbons in single color or a combination of different colors, visit Ribbons.com.

Blue ribbons will be tied around the campus of SIUE University Foundation to show their commitment for the nationally-known Blue Bow Campaign that marks April as Child Abuse Prevention Month. The blue ribbons are expected to create awareness for the Child Abuse Prevention Month by Children’s Home and Aid, a family-based service in Illinois. The blue color of the ribbons will represent the bruises of physical abuse that children suffer physically and emotionally.

According to Emma Christensen, this is the first year that the foundation will be observing Child Abuse Prevention Month because they want people to be aware that there are services available if they are in need of help. Many families live on campus and the university cares about these families. Sometimes, it is possible for people to be suffering from problems of abuse but they are not aware of available resources.

According to freshman nursing major Cassie Caldwell of Swansea, she plans to make a donation to support the cause. Junior mass communication major, Destiny Cantrell from Chicago assumed that the blue ribbons tied around trees were for the Autism Awareness Month which is also being honored in April. Knowing the true reason for the blue ribbons, Cantrell will consider volunteering for the sake of children.
Donations can help shelters that help children since there are few organizations that will extend their help for kids who will be involved. It would be a kind deed to volunteer and make donations.

According to Vice Chancellor for University Advancement Rachel Stack, her experience at Parents Anonymous, a hotline for parents has made Child Abuse Prevention Month as highly significant. The slogan that says “Asking for help is a sign for strength” has issues that require fixing. However, Blue Bow Campaign is a sort of public service where everyone is invited to contribute. It is similar to team building where students can participate.

To Teach Students Entrepreneurship Is What Student Painters Aims For

To Teach Students Entrepreneurship Is What Student Painters Aims For

For those who are looking for a great paint job, Miles Droege and his band of painters are currently offering La Porte residents painting services of good quality and at an affordable price. Not only is he doing this to earn money, but also to learn more about business.

Student Painters which is a branch of the Young Entrepreneurs Across America (YEAA), is a program that is aimed to provide college students internships and to give them the tools that they will need in order to become successful.

That is where Droege got his chance of expanding his knowledge and skills in the business world. Student Painters has allowed him to run and manage his own branch of the painting company. Droege was not the only one who was gifted with this opportunity but also a great number of college students and homeowners have been granted this position by Student Painters with its partner Sherwin Williams, a paint company tasked to train painters.

Droege said that he really thinks that it’s a really great opportunity not only for him but for all those who are involved and that the biggest and greatest thing about the whole program is that they teach you how to run your own business. He also wants his painters to know that they are not just workers but they are also helping this business grow.

Droege is only a 19-year old La Porte native and is currently a freshman student at the Purdue University studying business management. He first heard about Student Painters from his resident adviser and quickly after that, he became really involved and is now a branch manager that will bring the painting company to La Porte for the first time.

He says that running Student Painters is the same as running your own business with a little help from executives. They provide the tools and teach them how to do it but the business management is solely for you only.

The crews are made up of four individuals, three of whom are painters and one production assistant but all of them will report to Droege.

How My Little Pony Influenced Girl’s Toys And Other Products

The re-launch of the phenomenal My Little Pony has spurred the introduction of Hasbro’s girl’s toys. Aside from toys, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic has influenced a lot of other products from accessories to apparel. My little pony hoodies can be used by fans when they attend brony meetings.

The word brony has become a peculiar internet phenomenon but is has also received a share of derision. It seems that people cling to the belief that cartoons are only for kids and adults do not have the right to be entertained.

On the other hand, Hasbro most recent earning reports show a big growth in what was perceived as girl’s toys. Hasbro’s girl’s toys are selling like hotcakes while Mattel’s Barbie doll sales have dropped by 14% in the last quarter. However, the puzzling question is whether all the buyers are girls?

The intriguing question came about because of the growing number of “Bronies” that were spurred by My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic. My Little Pony has been around since the late 80’s but 27 years later, Hasbro has decided to introduce a new look for toys based on the popular animated series.

To quote directly from Hasbro’s most recent earning’s release; the girl’s category grew by at least 21% in the first quarter of 2014. My Little Pony, My Little Pony Equestria Girls and Nerf Rebelle (which is essentially a pink Nerf gun) have contributed to the outstanding growth of the category.

While Hasbro does not want to be bogged down with the financials of the whole thing, traditional pillars of the toy industry like Hasbro’s Playskool and many of its board games, Mattel’s Barbie and Fisher Price are flagging. My Little Pony is doing quite well and Hasbro’s girl’s category has propelled Hasbro into earning its first $1 billion in 2013.

Contrary to expectations, My Little Pony: Friendship is Magic is attracting the attention of everybody irrespective of age or gender. Last September the appeal was described as a mix of quality information and feel-good vibes. Hasbro’s recent products suggest that it is deliberately courting adult fans with trending cars, comic books and USB drives.

Cristina Fernández

Court Dismisses Argentine President’s Allegations

The Argentine President Cristina Fernandez de Kirchner has escaped verdict when an Argentine appeals court dismissed the controversial case against her. The president was accused of covering the tracks of the alleged involvement of Iranian officials in bombing a Jewish center in Buenos Aires last 1994. The attack claimed the lives of 85 people and no one has been convicted to answer the heinous crime.

Prosecutors have been charging her of the cover up and said that the President’s interest in partnering with the oil rich nation, Iran, spurred her into letting the Iranians off the hook.

Two out of the three judges in the trial voted against the appeal of the prosecutors. They concluded that no evidence of crime was committed by the president.

Throughout the years President Cristina Fernandez has always denied the accusations.
“No concrete evidence’

The judges made their decision after examining a report that was prepared by special prosecutor Alberto Nisman. Nisman tragically died in January which also roused the suspicious Argentines into believing that the president might be behind Nisman’s death.

Last Thursday, the Argentine justice ministry announced that the chamber of federal appeals ratifies the decision made by Judge Daniel Rafecas which rejected the allegations of the special prosecutor.

The court of appeals also agreed with the judge’s conclusion that indeed there was no substantial evidence pinning Ms Fernandez for covering the schemes of Iranian officials.

The Argentine newspapers have frequently headlined the unexplained death of the special prosecutor Alberto Nisman and the impending case against the Argentine President. On January 18 this year, the prosecutor was found dead inside his own apartment. There was a bullet wound on his head and a pistol was laid by his side.

The alleged suicide happened only hours before he was to testify in Congress against Ms Fernandez and Hector Timerman, the Foreign Minister of Argentina. Many say that his death was not a suicide and early this March, the family of Nisman claimed that independent investigations showed that he was mercilessly murdered.

The government has always stated that it had no role in Nisman’s death. It also pronounced to the public that Nisman was fed with untruth allegations from a rogue agent that is seeking to discredit and undermine the current leadership.

GUARD

US National Guard Arrested for Scheming to Join ISIS

The Department of Justice announced that a US soldier along with his cousin have been arrested and are currently facing charges in conspiring to support the terrorist group Islamic State or ISIS.

The 22 year old US National Guard soldier and his cousin are allegedly found to be discussing on how to attack a military facility in Illinois. They discussed these plots while in the army uniforms. The soldier also expressed his plans to travel to the Middle East in order to fight alongside with the Islamic State.

The prosecutors were successful in their case and the felons were charged with trying to give support to the condemned terrorist group.

On Wednesday, the Federal Bureau of Investigation arrested the 22 year old at the Chicago Midway International Airport. It was reported that he was attempting to fly out of the country heading for Cairo, Egypt. His 29 year old cousin was also arrested the same day in his suburban home.

Both have been charged with one count of scheming to provide material resources and support to a terrorist organization. When found guilty they will face 15 years of imprisonment and a fine worth $250,000.

The National Guard Army Specialist Hasan Edmonds first came under the radar of the FBI last year. This information was relayed by the Justice Department. Seasoned investigators have hard evidence to prove that Edmonds and his cousin were plotting to travel to the Middle East in hopes of joining the ISIS.

Both men have also been conspiring to attack a military outpost in northern Illinois. This was the military facility where Hasan Edmonds was training. The cousins spilled their plans to an undercover FBI agent. They said that they would use the military uniform of Hasan to access the military facility.

They were determined to carry out their plan in that Hasan Edmonds already booked tickets that would depart from Chicago on Wednesday. He would have arrived in Egypt the following day after connecting flights in Detroit and Netherlands.

This news is no surprise for the Western nations. As the ISIS fight has become increasingly popular, many Westerners are enticed to leave behind the comforts of home and fight alongside the terrorists.
