Stephen Murray’s Career Is Impressive

These are the two areas where Stephen has found the greatest success. In fact, he was the co-founder of CCMP Capital. This is a company that specializes in both of those areas. He serves as the president and Chief Executive Officer. However, it was not easy for Stephen to reach these lofty heights. It took quite a bit of hard work and determination on his part.

Stephen was not sure what career he should choose. His high school counselor told him that he should have a good idea about his career aspirations before he entered college.

The time for him to apply to colleges was getting near and Stephen Murray was still undecided. It was at this point that his guidance counselor recommended that Stephen pursue a degree in economics. Stephen had shown an interest in a career in finance.

An economics degree would allow him to pursue many different career opportunities. His career choices would not be limited. Stephen thought that this was a very wise decision. He majored in economics when he enrolled at Boston College. He completed his bachelor’s degree in 1984.

It was at the Manufacturers Hanover Corporation that Stephen got his career started. He was offered a position in one of their training programs. This has a huge opportunity for Stephen because there were only a small number of openings in these training programs each year.

Stephen was determined to make the most of this opportunity by impressing his supervisors. He put all of his time and energy into becoming the best employee he could possibly be.

Stephen Murray would later start working for the MH Equity Corporation. He was with this company for many years. He had dreams of eventually being the boss of his own company. He finally was able to secure the financial backing he needed to make his dream come to fruition. He and a few of his closest associates founded CCMP Capital.

This company was part of the JP Morgan Chase organization. However, all of the decisions regarding the operation of the company were made exclusively by Stephen in his position as CEO.

ClassDojo And Their New App Are Helping Bridge The Gap Between School And Home

There has always been the need for better communication between schools and families in some way. No matter what, something is always lost in the translation. This is an issue which ClassDojo is looking to change with Student Stories. This is a new app for students to log all of their crucial work or bright and shining moments and share them with family.

Think for a moment about all of the times there was a “thing” that you know you should’ve seen or project you wanted to be involved with. You can’t be everywhere at once. Now, with the help of this application, you can be more dynamically involved with the current affairs of your child’s efforts and triumphs. Liam Don, the co-Founder and chief product officer of ClassDojo stated, “Parents don’t get to see all the great work a kid is doing.” This is what he said in an interview with The 74.

He went on to say, “Kids get to share homework, but not the exciting stuff. The science project or the poem, that’s the exciting part.” One really great feature for the students is that they will not have to activate any accounts or remember passwords for their classes either. They simply scan a QR code for the class and all of their information is ready to go in the main system. It is a simple yet effective way to make sure they can access the system when they need it.

If you’ve never heard of ClassDojo, they are a company which takes teachers, students and their parents and empowers them all through connectivity. They are constantly researching and developing new and innovative ways to help teachers stay connected with parents while making the best use of the time spent with students. Not long ago the company reported being actively in use in 85,000 schools in the US. This includes private and public schools alike.

The majority of the teachers using the application are between the kindergarten to 8th-grade learning levels. This leaves room to expand in new ways for later classes for more mature youth to use. In an article from Tech Crunch, ClassDojo has raised another $21 million in funding for their learning and teaching platform. Clearly, this shows a great level of interest from outside parties to further educational development and empowerment for all concerned. It’s a better way to build for the future.

Securus Technologies to Disclose Gross Irregularities in Its Industry

The U.S. Prison Industry is once again in the news as the debate on illegal call charges by private telecommunication contractors is gaining controversy. Recently, the F.C.C. imposed rate limits on telecommunication providers who are often blamed for charging exorbitant call rates to families of prisoners. Perhaps, the debate would not be controversial if certain private contractors were more responsible. To raise awareness of illegal practices by certain private telecommunication companies, the CEO of Securus Technologies, Rick A. Smith, will publish results of a series of official reports that outlines the perpetrators who are tarnishing the industry.

As part of his commitment, Rick has published a formal 17-page Order No. U-20784-B by the Louisiana Public Service Commission, which outlines how GTL, Global Tel Link, deliberately overcharged customers during its contract with the Louisiana Department of Corrections. According to the report, GTL implanted devices in the telephones of prisons to automatically add timings to the original call. In addition to the illegal software, the fee charged by GTL was also higher than the prescribed limit set by regulatory authorities. The report also claimed that GTL was engaged in prompting clients to use additional time by including add-on marketing tactics.

Overall, officials found that GTL extorted nearly $1,243,000 from families of prisoners. During that time, the management of GTL knew about such practices. Therefore, the final verdict blamed the higher management for embezzling money from families of prisoners.

According to Rick A. Smith, it is his moral duty to highlight such gross irregularities because companies like GTL give bad name to the entire industry. He also claimed that most of the businesses in the industry are honest, therefore it is important to highlight who is tarnishing the image of the prison communication industry. Accordingly, there will be more such reports published on the official website of Securus Technologies in the coming months.

Nutrimost’s stolen promotional video lands Healthy Living in court

No one was available for comment from Healthy Living over the accusations of them stealing a promotional video from Nutrimost. The stolen video ended up on the Healthy living website can’tlosediet.com, and that has landed them with a federal lawsuit from their rival, Nutrimost.

Nutrimost claims that the video stolen is from their website, and was changed only slightly by Healthy Living to be placed on theirs. Customer testimonials about the weight loss program were left on the video, as was comments from the author of the program, Dr. Ray Wisniewski. The only part of the video that was changed was the removal of all references to Nutrimost.

When being compared, the videos are virtually identical. The claims of how much weight could be lost(25 to 45 pounds in 40 days or less), and never having to exercise were clearly visible in both. In addition, there were the identical claims that users of the weight loss program never felt hungry, and they never had to use hormones, harmful drugs, or undergo surgery.

Weight loss company Nutrimost files lawsuit against rival Healthy Living for allegedly stealing promotional video.

Dr. Wisniewski, the principal of the weight loss program, says the program is safe for everyone and is monitored by doctors. Dr. Wisniewski practices “pastoral health” medicine, which incorporates science and spiritual health wisdom and understanding.

The video was kept up on Healthy Living’s website, despite receiving a cease-and-desist order. It was kept up for a while with the only change being a shortened version of the video. To date, the video has not resurfaced on the website.

Nutrimost has changed the way people lose weight. Their weight loss system will help a person lose 25-45 pounds in just 40 days. It is totally safe and doctor-monitored.

No exercise is required. There are no harmful drugs with this Nutrimost program. It’s safe and effective.

Venezuelan Entrepreneur Danilo Diaz-Granados Found His Retail Niche In Miami

Visiting Miami is like visiting a country in South or Central American. Latinos control the city. The mayor of Miami is Cuban, and the 70 percent Latino population comes from Cuba, Brazil, Mexico, Dominican Republic, Guatemala, El Salvador, Venezuela, Nicaragua, Puerto Rico, Colombia, and Honduras. The retail business in Miami caters to the Latino population, but many of the retailers have overlooked one very important segment of that community. That segment is the wealthy Latinos that came to Miami to make money. But one Venezuelan entrepreneur, Danilo Diaz-Granados, identified the void in the retail market and did something about it. Granados, a graduate of Babson College, in Massachusetts, moved to Miami as an investment advisor for Firemen Capital Partners and he quickly developed a wealthy client based that liked his investment ideas. His clients also liked to spend money, but they didn’t like to shop.

After several conversations with clients, and after doing an extensive amount of research, Granados realized he could open a company that offered his clients expensive cars, designer clothing and shoes, as well as accessories in one place. He called his new venture Toys for Boys, and the company started doing business immediately. Granados discovered that his client based lived in Miami, but he was also getting orders from clients that lived in other Latino countries.

Granados continued to give investment advice, but he also started, Edge of Glory Films, a film company that documented Latino life in the United States and other countries. Granados was the director, producer, editor, writer, and on occasion, an actor in some of his films. Danilo’s life became a film, and he documented his experiences, so people in other countries could see the opportunities that exist in the United States.

Danilo Diaz-Granados calls himself an entrepreneur, and the people that know him use that term to describe him. But that word doesn’t describe what Granados has accomplished in the short time he’s been alive. Danilo is constantly reinventing himself through his businesses and through the people that believe in him. Diaz Granados is a true success story, and the end of his story hasn’t been written yet.
