How Educators Are Using Class Dojo to Teach Empathy and Values

Educators around the United States are now implementing Class Dojo’s empathy-inducing videos into public elementary curriculums. ClassDojo, the educational application which was developed to enhance teachers’ relationships with parents and students, has recently develop a series of these videos in an effort to instill empathetic values into children on a regular basis. Representatives from ClassDojo recently participated in an interview where they discussed the development of educational videos about empathy and reasons the company believed these videos were relevant to the educational process. The videos, which were made available to Class Dojo subscribers a short time ago, have received raved reviews by educators, parents, and students alike.

Development of Empathy-Based Videos

Class Dojo representatives stated that the development of empathy-based videos has been on the company’s agenda for several months. After the launch of Harvard University’s empathy campaign, which was developed in an effort to convey empathetic values to the nation’s youth, Class Dojo decided that the videos should be created and rapidly released. Class Dojo’s creative department developed a series of videos which feature lovable monsters and other characters who engage in interesting plots which teach children how to respond to difficult situations with empathy for one another. Representatives from the ClassDojo stated a new wave of instructional videos will soon be released to Class Dojo subscribers.

 

Relevant Nature of Educational Courses About Empathy

Class Dojo representatives emphasized the need of empathy-based videos in the public education system. According to the latest Harvard University study on empathetic values in the United States, there has been a drastic decline of empathy between American citizens who disagree. ClassDojo hopes to rectify this decline through the education of the future generation of American citizens. By including empathy-based programs in the public school curriculum, educators can teach students to develop successful practices for communicating with those who disagree with them. Although students could also benefit from an education that teaches them to think critically and react to difficult situations logically rather than emotioanlly, ClassDojo representatives believe that the first step toward the development of successful citizens is the development of empathetic values. Students who are taught to place themselves in the shoes of those with whom they disagree are likely to successfully engage in conflicting situations in the future. ClassDojo has become widely regarded as one of the best educational applications in the United States and is quickly growing through the development of successful strategies.

Can Kabbalah be the Magical Cure for Depression?

The Kabbalah Center of Los Angeles, California, has spent decades teachings its pupils that depression is not an inevitable part of life, but merely a symptom of losing one’s connection with the spiritual source. Through studying what Kabbalah says about the secret spiritual realities of the universe, depression is most definitely something which can be cured.

 

Kabbalah, the ancient mystical interpretation of Judaism, has been around since long before the Earth was created. Its teachings provide us with insights into the purpose of life and what it means to be human. At the Kabbalah Center, which was opened in 1984, students wishing to learn these ancient secrets may partake in numerous workshops and seminars to better understand the meaning of their existence, as well as how to navigate through this world happily and peacefully.

 

According to Kabbalah, much of our unhappiness comes from egotistical wants and desires. Material possessions distract us from our true purpose, which is to stay connected with God and nature. These material possessions give us a false sense of accomplishment, but ultimately we become slaves to these superficial symbols of prosperity, and we suffer emotionally.

 

Kabbalah also teaches us that we did not randomly end up with the families we were born into. Rather, we chose the family we have now in a past lifetime, and it is part of our higher purpose during lifetime to learn something from the family we are in. Therefore, nothing about this current existence is an accident, and rather than pity ourselves for our circumstances, we must understand that our souls have something to learn from these family relationships.

 

God has given us each a spiritual purpose which is unique to us. In Kabbalah, we learn that when we are not in tune with the guidance God provides to us, we lose touch with our higher purpose. Then, our lives suffer because we are living in a way that does not fulfill our purpose on this planet. By reconnecting with the spiritual source, we are living right with the universe, as has been destined by God.

 

The Kabbalah Centre has turned around the lives of many suffering from various forms of depression and anxiety. By working personally with pupils to address their own emotional needs, and by educating them thoroughly on the teachings of Kabbalah, many students have seen a complete positive transformation in their lives.

Atlanta Hawks Law Suit

December 1, 2016

ATLANTA HAWKS NEW STEWARDS

Bruce Levenson is a business tycoon, a former Atlanta Hawks owner, and a philanthropist (read: http://www.prnewswire.com/news-releases/undergrads-and-graduate-students-mastering-philanthropy-300038081.html). In 2004 Levenson bought the Hawks, Thrashers, and Philip Arena from Turner Broadcasting, a team of entrepreneurs who owned Atlanta Hawks, Thrashers, and Philips Arena at $250 million. Levenson and Ed Peskowitz were the principal shareholders of the Hawks and Philip Arena. Later on, in 2011, Levenson sold the Thrashers at $170 million.

In 2012 Bruce Levenson hired Danny Ferry, a former player at Cleveland Cavaliers as the general manager and president of basketball activities. However, in 2014, Hawks went on sale after receiving a letter from Bruce Levenson requesting them to sell the team and the arena. Levenson hired Goldman Sachs and Inner Circle to handle the bidding process. They ended up accepting Ressler’s proposal. Tony Ressler, Jesse Itzler the team’s consultant, Sara Blakely, Rice Partner, Steven Sarker and Clayton Dubilier, were mandated with the bidding task so as to ensure that the bidding process was smooth. Nevertheless, the NBA owners would have the final decision on the sale and transaction.

According to Goldman Sachs, selling Hawks and Philip’s Arena’s operating rights would amount to $1billion. Other statistics, however, indicated that Hawks and Philips Arena worth was ranging from $700 to $1.2 billion, reflecting the strength of the sport in the business world. Though the price was billed at over $1 billion by Goldman Sachs, Tony Ressler ended up buying the franchise at $730 million.

Without a doubt, Bruce Levenson made an incredible profit with the sale bearing in mind that he had bought Hawks, Thrashers, and the Philips Arena at $250 million. Nevertheless, by exaggerating the price, the bankers for the Hawks may have discouraged other bidders, leaving better options on the table. Selling Hawks and Phillips Arena did not affect the players since they still won a franchise-record of sixty games and were rated the best players in the Eastern Conference.

Josh Verne: Not Just Being Heard, But Listening

The common dream for people is to be heard. Everyone has the right to be heard. It doesn’t matter the circumstances. There are businesses where the employees are not happy. Among the reasons that employees are not happy is that they are not listened to. When employees are not happy, then they are not going to make it easier for the employer. A good employer is someone that listens to what people are saying. While the employer does have to make sure that the employees are doing their job, he has to also present a situation that is good for all sides.

 

Josh Verne has learned the value of listening to employees. For one thing, he has learned that employees that are happy are going to make positive changes in the businesses. Also, another thing that he has realized is that people are becoming more aware of their options. One thing Josh wants to see is a business where employees are treated fairly. It is an uncomfortable situation where an employer is making things miserable for the employee. Even the employee that is the most willing to work for the company is going to find himself looking for a way out when he is faced with a bad work situation.

 

One thing that could be done for employees is to provide a platform for employees to voice their opinions. Among the things employers and business owners could do is run meetings. Even though many companies run meetings, a lot of those meetings are lectures of the employer to the employees. However, another option for meetings is for employers to leave room for the employees to leave their input. Not only that, it would not hurt to at least take in some of the suggestions of the employee. This would encourage the employee to work for the company more.

 

A large part of business is making things easier for the employee among others. The whole point of business is to provide benefits to people so that they will have the very thing they need or want in their lives. Every aspect of the business has to be treated with care.

Hiring Cleaning Experts

November 14, 2016

Handy Cleans Throughout the World

I love to throw parties. I hate to clean. This could be a very bad combination if it were not for Handy. This is the company that I trust with all of my cleaning needs. I can say that I have never been disappointed with this company. There have always been a skillful set of cleaners that were sent my way to help me after a wild party. I think that my ability to get such good cleaners in place so soon is a true sign of just how good Handy Cleaning Services can be.

There are representatives that usually show up in about 24 hours after I have made the call. There is also a money back guarantee that comes with the work that this company is doing. All of that equates to a better service because workers are not going to come out and half-clean if they know that disgruntled customers will request a refund. I have seen how Handy.com has made millions in the last couple of years, and I think that this is rightfully deserved. There are local maid services all over the world in every major city. The major cleaning franchise like Handy Cleaning Services, by contrast, is something that is rare. People in the United States have seen this, but Handy Cleaning Services are also being presented to people in London and Canada. This sets the stage for better opportunities to grow.

I think that more people that are in positions like I am will see the need for this type of service. I often work long hours. If I never hired anyone to clean I would be living like someone from Hoarders. It doesn’t take long for a couple of dirty dishes to become a load of dirty dishes. I make sure that I call Handy.com Cleaning Services when I think that things are getting out of hand. I used to get Handy Cleaning Services out once a month. Now I book the appointments once a week. This is a great fit because I can throw a party at any time that I choose to do so.

The Internet has made it possible for people to book services in a matter of minutes. That is what I really do like about using Handy. You can get on the website (https://www.handy.com/) and decide exactly what services you want the cleaning crew to do.
