As banking and the delivery of financial services continue to evolve in this digital age, Investors Bank feels a responsibility to the next generation to ensure they have a solid financial education,”

— Investors Bank Chief Administrative Officer Brian Doran

SHORT HILLS, NEW JERSEY , UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, September 17, 2021 / — Investors Bancorp, Inc. is going back to school this September!

More than 63 percent of Americans consider themselves financially illiterate, lacking the knowledge, skills and resources needed to make informed financial decisions. To help address that issue, Investors will again launch a free, digital financial learning experience for high school students in Essex, Hudson, Middlesex and Union counties in New Jersey during the 2021-2022 school year.

The program, Money Moves: Modern Banking & Identity ProtectionTM, was designed by Zelle® and EVERFI, the leading social impact education technology company. The strategic partnership with Investors will provide students in grades 9-12 with practical knowledge and empowerment for making educated financial decisions in an ever-changing digital world.

“Education is essential to creating the strong communities necessary to keep our region moving forward. Investors Bank is involved with the Money Moves program because we feel it is our obligation to ensure the next generation is able to make sound financial decisions, while avoiding fraud and protecting their identity,” said Investors Bank Chairman and CEO Kevin Cummings.

Through the program, students will learn safe and responsible strategies for using online and mobile banking, and other modern financial tools. The four-part program covers:

• Introductory Financial Concepts – highlights the benefits of financial institutions and how they can be used to best meet student needs.
• Modern Digital Banking – identifies features of digital and in-person banking and how to use online banking tools to manage money.
• Identity Theft & Fraud Protection – provides details on controlling personal information online, identifying potential financial scams or fraud, and what to do if targeted by scammers.
• Peer-to-Peer Transactions – identifies potential risks and benefits of Peer-to-Peer (P2P) payment apps and how to safely use them.

Each lesson takes students through various scenarios using diverse environments and characters. Problem-solving exercises help students learn the material and understand the real-life applications. The lessons are aligned with Jump$tart National Standards, CEE National Standards for Financial Literacy, and state-based Financial Literacy Standards.

“As banking and the delivery of financial services continue to evolve in this increasingly digital age, Investors Bank feels a real responsibility to the next generation to ensure they have a solid financial education,” said Investors Bank Chief Administrative Officer Brian Doran. “Our evolving and valued strategic partnership with EVERFI will continue to help enhance this commitment to our communities.”

BEST Robotics Launches Demo Daze Season 2021 – Reskilling Our Youth Towards the Future

The future of our economy, growth of industry, and higher education depend on securing our students' pathway to STEM employment”

— Dr. Mike Bright, BEST President of the Board

PITTSBURGH, PA, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 / — BEST Robotics, the national nonprofit that delivers free STEM skills training programs through robotics competitions to schools across the country, is announcing that the focus for the 2021 seasons for BEST teams, mentors, and schools will be the construction and demolition (C&D) industry. BEST tailors it's annual competition to meet major industry trends. Recently, the Bureau of Labor and Statistics announced that last year, as part of the nation's recovery from the effects of COVID, over 900,000 jobs in the C&D industry were created. The many skills needed to be successful in the C&D industry mirror the skills needed to succeed in BEST competitions.

This diversity in skills training enables BEST Robotics to support more students and schools with its national partners: MathWorks, Texas Instruments, and Toyota USA Foundation.

Thousands of BEST Robotics students, formed into teams, will experiment and innovate using diverse workforce essential skills and technologies while disrupting how these are used to perform the complex and safety-critical tasks on construction and demolition sites. Construction and Demolition materials consist of the debris generated during the construction, renovation, and demolition of buildings, roads, and bridges. Managing these C&D materials is a significant part of the engineering effort on any construction or demolition site. School teams encounter additional issues such as site safety and preserving parts of an existing environment as they lead and seek the next BEST innovation using numerous technologies, including robotics.

"It is never too early to open these doors for future careers. Nationwide, we are seeing key shortages in Americans ready to take the lead in the development of tomorrow's technologies. Unless we plan today to train the leaders of tomorrow, the skills gap will only grow. Our nation's technological leadership will be in peril," says Finch Fulton, BEST Board Member and VP of Locomation, an autonomous trucking company, as well as the former United States Department of Transportation Deputy Assistant Secretary of Policy.

As an organization operating through schools and hubs across our nation, BEST Robotics has stayed focused throughout the impact of Covid on planning for students' future careers.

"We want to ensure that our students and partners continue to engage in multifaceted training for the future. BEST continues to be students' teams and schools partner in FREE project-based-STEM-learning. The future of our economy, growth of industry, and higher education depend on securing our students' pathway to STEM employment," says Dr. Mike Bright, BEST President of the Board and Chair of the Electrical and Computer Engineering Department at Grove City College."

Starting with the 2020 pandemic season and ongoing during Demo Daze 2021, BEST delivers in THREE different Skills training programs:

BEST Classic

BEST Classroom
Takes place in teams' schools, classrooms, after-school clubs, or anywhere the teams can congregate for up to 8 weeks.

BEST Online

"Thousands of industry volunteers engage with BEST Robotics students, mentoring them to support their yearly journey as they experiment and innovate, developing the skills needed to join the workforce of the future. Experimenting now, together with leading industry experts, learning how these skills are used to perform the complex tasks…it is an amazing opportunity for the students. Frankly, it is an eye-opener for us in the industry as well, with mentors and volunteers experimenting side-by-side with students. There is an excitement which is hard to find,” adds Finch Fulton.

MGT Welcomes Education Turnaround Specialist Andre Wright to Support Districts in Colorado and Beyond

Experienced administrator from Aurora will assume leadership role and build on the progress achieved in Adams County School District 14.

I look forward to working with students, families, and staff in Adams 14 and beyond.”

— Andre Wright

DENVER, COLORADO, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 / — MGT Consulting Group announced today that experienced educator Andre Wright will join the team as a Senior Vice President on its Education Solutions team, effective September 30. Sought after for his successful work turning around struggling schools, Wright will apply his deep knowledge as a career educator to partner with turnaround schools and school districts in Colorado and across the country.

Most recently, Wright served as the Chief Academic Officer of Aurora Public Schools. In that role, he oversaw many student achievement gains, including significantly improving the district’s graduation rate and increasing the Colorado District Performance Framework scores. The son of two educators, Wright began his career in education as a paraprofessional.

A. Trey Traviesa, Chairman and CEO of MGT Consulting Group, said, “Andre is a visionary leader with a thoughtful approach to education innovation, engagement, and culture. He is exactly the right person to build on the progress in Adams 14 and position the district for long- term sustainability and ongoing student and family achievement. We’re honored to have him as an important part of our team as we continue to transform children’s lives through the lens of education.”

Wright will replace the retiring Dr. Harry Bull, the 2017 Superintendent of the Year in Colorado, who oversaw MGT’s work in Adams 14 since 2019. Over the last two years, MGT’s partnership with Adams 14 has resulted in increased graduation rates, decreased dropout rates, and more opportunities for students, especially students learning English.

Wright said, “I know from my years of experience that turning around schools and district that have struggled for years is no easy feat, and there are no silver bullets, but I also know it is possible. Impactful learning is not just academic but is also culturally responsive and rooted in equitable approaches to wellness. As a proud husband and father, I can relate to the hopes and fears families have for their children, the challenges and celebrations of classroom teachers and the demands and rewards of building administration. I look forward to working with students, families, and staff in Adams 14 and beyond.”

Brooke Miller Coaching to be Featured on Close Up Radio

PRESCOTT VALLEY, ARIZONA, UNITED STATES, September 17, 2021 / — Are you wanting more out of life? Are you struggling to manage stress, anxiety, or work/life balance? Despite our best efforts, sometimes it feels impossible to get out of our own way, and advice from friends and family members only goes so far. If you’re feeling stuck and unable to reach your goals, perhaps it’s time to consider working with a therapist or coach who can help you rewire old patterns and create a life you truly love.

Brooke Miller is an experienced Psychotherapist and Holistic Life Coach. She founded Brooke Miller Coaching in 2012 with the mission to help her clients get unstuck and live their best lives.

“We are all creatures of habit, programmed by our unconscious core beliefs and reinforced by our automatic thoughts and behaviors. Creating our lives with intention requires that we change our habits of behavior and mind. Because we are social creatures, most of us will be more successful with external accountability and support to create the change we seek.”

Brooke says that while therapy and coaching are similar, there are differences. Therapy helps us address our wounds from the past and correct dysfunctional patterns that perpetuate depression, anxiety and the effects of trauma. Coaching is more future focused, and emphasizes specific results. As a licensed therapist and a certified coach, Brooke draws from both disciplines to support her clients wherever they are on their path of personal development.

“Through our work together, my clients get clarity, skills and accountability, and this encourages them to take action. With new action comes new results. When we see new results, we gain self-trust and the confidence to keep moving forward.”

Brooke’s own path of personal development started over a decade prior to opening her practice. As a therapy client and later, a coaching client, Brooke has continued to focus on the conscious creation of her own life. When she followed her dream to travel the world, she embarked on a journey of self-empowerment, and this cemented her purpose of helping others do the same.

“Embrace change, pursue what you truly desire and don’t let fear hold you back. Surround yourself with supportive people who encourage your growth and expansion. Believe that it is absolutely possible to create a life you love! I am here to help you to get there.”

About Brooke Miller Coaching

Brooke Miller Coaching is dedicated to empowering women to build stronger mental and physical health, relationships, finances and overall resilience. Brooke started in the mental health field 20 years ago and became a certified coach in 2012. Her extensive work with therapy clients across the lifespan has given her a unique perspective into human behavior and relationship dynamics, which gives her a breadth of experience and insight to draw from when supporting clients’ expansion. Brooke Miller Coaching is now available worldwide via telehealth.

New book about the COVID-19 Pandemic – Perspectives in Humanities and Social Sciences

COVID-19 Pandemic, Crisis Responses and the Changing World

COVID-19 Pandemic, Crisis Responses and the Changing World

ZHUHAI, CHINA, September 17, 2021 / — A book edited by Prof Simon X.B. Zhao, Prof Johnston H.C. Wong, Dr Charles Lowe, Dr Edoardo Monaco and Prof John Corbett entitled “COVID-19 Pandemic, Crisis Responses and the Changing World Perspectives in Humanities and Social Sciences” was published by Springer Nature on multiple platforms on August 28, 2021. The book assesses the intense impact that the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic has been exerting throughout the globe in various domains across humanities and social sciences.

The authors of many chapters in the book are faculty members of Beijing Normal University – Hong Kong Baptist University United International College (BNU-HKBU UIC), a liberal arts joint-venture college located in Zhuhai, Guangdong Province, China, and in particular of its Division of Humanities and Social Sciences (DHSS). Outstanding alumni, as well as world-renowned scholars, are also among the contributors.

This timely, comprehensive publication is divided into three sections: the first section focuses on “Global Economics, Politics and Public Health Responses”, thus delving into the politico-economic governance side of the pandemic, mainly from a transnational perspective. The second section presents “Country Reports and Comparative Studies” of relevant national contexts in Asia, Europe, Africa and the Americas. Finally, the third section explores various realms across social disciplines as it examines “New Order and Impacts in Business, Culture and Society”.

This remarkable undertaking at the height of the COVID-19 threat is a striking example of how a whole international academic community was able to come together despite adversities and distance, and collectively began taking stock of global dynamics of vast proportions, whose effects will likely reverberate across continents and sectors for years to come.

As the first full-scale cooperation in higher education between the Chinese mainland and Hong Kong, Beijing Normal University-Hong Kong Baptist University United International College (UIC) was jointly founded by Beijing Normal University (BNU) and Hong Kong Baptist University (HKBU). UIC is the first modern college in the Chinese mainland that upholds a liberal arts education, situated in Zhuhai city in the Guangdong-Hong Kong-Macao Greater Bay Area

The most common Wi-Fi problems and how to fix them

Most Common WiFi Router Problems and Solutions

LOS ANGELES, CALIFORNIA , USA, September 15, 2021 / — With the momentous growth in smart home devices, video streaming services and online gaming platforms are also booming. That’s why keeping a steady internet connection is more crucial than ever to enjoy a seamless gaming experience. If you're experiencing lags when playing your favorite games or taking a long time to download music, chances are you're experiencing problems with your wireless router.

Well, there could be many reasons. One can experience common Wi-Fi router problems like slow internet or no internet connectivity. Most of the time, a fix is as easy as plugging a router or modem back in after you or your kids accidentally pulled it out. Sometimes, restarting the laptop's network driver is the solution. The good news is that most Wi-Fi issues are easy to fix, and you can figure out how to reconnect to your Wi-Fi at home.

Most Common Wi-Fi Router Problems and Solutions
1. Slow Connection
One of the main reasons why Wi-Fi speeds slow down is being too far away from the router. If you are far from the router, the connection will be iffy. To fix this problem, all you need is to move closer to the router. However, if the router is in another room, try moving to that room with your device. If the problem persists, try placing the router higher up (perhaps on a shelf), and don't put too much clutter or appliances around your router, such as a microwave oven, which can affect the Wi-Fi signal. There is another solution: replace your wireless router with Meshforce M7, the network will cover the entire house, completely solve the problem of distance.

2. Single Device is Not Connecting to the Wi-Fi
Sometimes it happens, you run into Wi-Fi issues only with one device. This is probably a momentary network issue. So, in such a case, try turning off the Wi-Fi on your device and then re-enable it. If this doesn’t solve your problem, try to do the same with your router this time and re-plug it back after 30 seconds. Even if that doesn’t help, you can consider deleting your current account from the list of the saved network and then reconnect again.

3. No Internet Connection
One of the most common wireless router problems is the internet dropping completely, not due to the hardware issue but service outage. You can drop a line to your Internet Service Provider (ISP) and let them know about the router problem so that they can fix this problem.
Another reason the internet disconnects from the router is due to glitches or modem stops communicating with the ISP. The best you can do for such an issue is to pull the plug, disconnect the router/ modem from the power, and wait at least 30 seconds for the restoration.

4. Connection Drops at Random Times
Does it happen to you? Whenever you use your old iron or microwave oven, the connection drops. This may sound strange, but very few routers have connection problems on the 2.4 GHz frequency. If you are experiencing interference from other network devices, you can change the route of your router. If this doesn't help, you can factory reset the router device by pressing a paperclip into a small hole inside the router.
If you are already using a mesh router, you can also set it up out of production, for example you can see a small hole on the back of the Meshforce M7 tri-band mesh wifi system that says RST, press it until the light flashes again

Another possible reason is that there are too many devices connected to Wi-Fi at the same time, resulting in network disconnection. In this case, you also need to consider upgrading your router, Meshforce M7, a 3-band mesh router that supports 60 devices connected to the router at the same time without affecting the network speed.

None of the above solutions work?
Have you tried all the solutions for your wireless router problem, but nothing is helping you out?
If so, you should call your Internet Service Provider. However, most of the common problems of a wireless router can be figured out by the users themselves with the help of the above solutions. If all devices are not connecting, there must be a problem with the network or Wi-Fi, and if one device is not connecting, there might be something wrong with that device.

Warning: You can solve most common wireless router issues by simply restarting the router; however, DO NOT take the router apart as it may result in damage or warranty lapses.

When you receive the card, you will also have a chance to obtain rare cards. These rare cards will bring additional Dogecoin rewards to NFT holders as follows:

Level 1 – 2: No additional rewards
Level 3: 10% more rewards
Level 4: 30% more rewards
Level 5: 100% more rewards

If an NFT holder has more than one rare card, the rewards can be combined. Therefore, when NFT holders have all the rare cards, they’ll get a reward of more than 640%. For example, if someone owns all rare cards and gets a USD 1,000 DOGE reward, they will then receive 6,400 DOGE rewards in each reward cycle (every three days). Ninja Doge claim this will be the largest reward reflection mechanism in the history of NFTs!

As with other “dog-themed” meme tokens, the Ninja Doge comes with its own tax system. This includes a 5% reward to encourage people to “hold” Ninja Doge, 5% for repurchasing and burning to maintain price deflation, 2% is used for price stability, and 1% is donated to local animal charities.

"We are glad to have them listed on BigONE Exchange. Ninja Doge's team is energetic and innovative. Their reward structure is fair too for their users. More importantly, we can support their tokenomics and redistribute them regularly back to their holders. I am already seeing more users onboarded to the exchange. We are excited." Scott Tripp, Marketing Specialist at BigONE Exchange added.
