Dick DeVos Leading the Way in Philanthropic Giving

Although Dick DeVos’ name is synonymous with the Amway empire co-founded by his father Rich, not enough attention has been given to his charitable contributions. The amount is staggering In comparison to political contributions, with $11.6 million dollars given out in 2015 alone- More than double the 5.3 million over the past five years as reported by Betsy DeVos reported to the federal government as part of the vetting process for her position as Secretary of the Department of Education.

 

The Dick and Betsy DeVos Family Foundation have given back to the community nearly $139 million dollars over their lifetimes. However, giving is an even larger part of the Amway family Dynasty, with DeVos’ father and four grown children contributing a total of $104 million dollars in charity donations in 2015. According to Forbes Magazine data, the family has given $1.33 billion, or roughly one quarter of their $5.2 billion dollar fortune.

 

Among the philanthropic endeavors for Dick and Betsy, it’s evident that education is a top priority. In 2015 alone, more than $3 million was earmarked for educational causes, which made roughly 26 percent of their total charitable donations for the year. Additionally, their foundation awarded 3 percent or $357,000 for educational reform.

 

When asked about educational priorities, DeVos said that it became became clear to he and his wife over time that the current system was not fulfilling the American dream. In other words, he believes the issue is increasingly a civil rights problem. During an interview with MLive and The Grand Rapids Press, Devos also stated that kids growing up in the wrong zip code can have a difficult time reaching the American Dream, and education is a necessary part to achieving that dream.

 

Although critics argue that school vouchers and Charter Schools take tax dollars away from public schools, DeVos believes choice addresses the failings of a one size fits all program inherent within the public school curriculum. DeVos truly believes there are many great teachers and administrators doing wonderful work, but a better job can be done at helping talented educators to be even more effective in reaching out to every child.

 

A specific breakdown of philanthropic education contributions for 2015 is currently unavailable. However, according to the Foundation’s tax records in 2013 include several Major beneficiaries. Among those are the West Michigan Aviation Academy ($315,000), Ferris State University in Big Rapids ($100,000), Detroit Charter School Company New Urban Learning ($25,000), Potter’s House in Wyoming ($301,000). Rehoboth Christian School New Mexico ($50,000), and Dick DeVos’ alma mater Northwood University in Midland ($200,000).

 

Apparently, it’s not the wealth accumulated but how much is given away, according to Dick DeVos and his family. They show it in actions instead of rhetoric, and lead the way in philanthropy.

Education Philanthropist Betsy DeVos

It is no simple task to reform the education system that is implemented in current times, mainly due to the fact that the schools are run by the government. If the schools were privately owned with competition with other privately owned schools then basic economics would improve the school system. When parents and students have more choice in schools then this will ensure that the education being provided will be more honed for the student’s individual needs rather than a generalized method of teaching. Also, with teacher unions making it nearly impossible to fire teachers who are under-performing, the quality of education being provided is not the primary incentive for teachers to ensure they are doing their job at the utmost capability.Betsy DeVos has been a life long advocate in education reform for the nation and she now is in a position to make some really necessary changes on a grander scale than before. DeVos has always felt the reform movement was increasing in momentum in recent years and now she can reinforce that movement so that there is at least no downward stride in the popularity behind more school choice.

One inspirational incident that led for DeVos’ contributions to the reform movement was when she and her husband, Dick DeVos, were looking for schools for their own children and they happened across Potter’s House Christian School in Grand Rapids, MI. This particular private school was providing great education for low-income families and DeVos’ admired the level of determination of the parents to ensure that their children were getting appropriate education as well as being safe and cared for. After learning of the struggles these families faced to have access to the same quality of education the DeVos’ could have easily afforded, DeVos’ then began supporting several students for the tuition cost of the school which gradually built itself into the significant generosity she provides to the school currently.

It was the interactions with this school that empowered DeVos’ to fight for what she thinks that every American deserves in education, the access to quality education of the parent’s choice and not mandated by government on how to perform better, but rather by the natural competitive market of private schools. If tuition was not guaranteed and had to be sought for so that the school stays operating than that alone will improve the school system by increasing the quality of teachers and faculty to ensure students are getting the best education. Giving the power back to the family in school decisions is one of the strongest ways to enact school reform, and also one of the more obvious, but that doesn’t mean that matters will change over night.

Podcast Advertising Results

Norman Pattiz, the Executive Chairman of Podcast One, and Tom Webster, the VP of Strategy at Edison Research, recently announced the results that came in after a series of studies were conducted on the impact of Podcasts as an advertising vehicle.

The results of the study, which at how Podcasts influenced attitudes on five major consumer brands in the US, were released in February of 2017. What’s found is that when used strategically, Podcasts can definitely have an impact on the way major brands are perceived by the public.

Results of the Podcast Study

The study was the first of its kind, and it studied five brands that represent different product and service categories. All of this makes the study more broad reaching in its scope and significance.

What was found was that over 60% of the Podcast study participants retained information about a grocery store brand they heard about in the Podcast (as compared to 7% initially). Financial services and lawn and garden products also saw awareness of their brands increase after the study, while the opinion of automotive aftermarket services also became much more positive after the study was completed. The positive results in awareness for casual dining restaurants was also significant.

According to Norman Pattiz, all of this shows the real impact advertising on Podcasts has. The studies were conducted in 2016 over three sessions, by Edison Research. What is clear is that people who are listening to Podcasts are very receptive to the messages they hear, which is very good news for advertisers.

Bloomberg revealed that Norman Pattiz is a man whose career has long been intimately involved in broadcasting. He founded the leading advertiser supported Podcasting network, www.PodcastOne.com, which produced over 340 hours of programming per week.

Pattiz is also the founder of WestwoodOne, a radio giant. Patti has long been convinced that Podcasting is a significant tool for communicaters who want to get their messages heard.

For advertisers, this means they have a way to get a positive message out in a way that will be heard and retained by consumers. That all adds up to great news for brands and for the Podcasting arena, too.

Jeremy Goldstein strikes out on his own

Jeremy Goldstein is one of the nation’s foremost executive compensation attorneys. After having made a name for himself as one of the top senior partners at Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz, Goldstein has decided to wrap up his career as a corporate lawyer, opting to start his own firm, where he can focus on applying his vast skill set to the niche of small to medium business owners.http://thereisnoconsensus.com/jeremy-goldstein-explains-knockout-options-help-employers/

One of the first moves that Goldstein made upon leaving Wachtell, Lipton, Rosen and Katz was to have his name added to the New York State Bar Association’s system known as the Lawyer Referral and Information System. The Lawyer Referral and Information System is a novel means of connecting clients seeking competent legal counsel in the state of New York with those lawyers in good standing with the bar association, who are capable of delivering top-quality service in their local area. Goldstein having his name added to this list of New York state top attorneys is a major step in allowing his new practice, Jeremy L. Goldstein and Associates, to thrive.

The New York State Bar Association is one of the oldest of its kind, anywhere in the country. Having been founded in 1876, it’s the oldest continuously operated state bar association in the country. Almost all other states have either directly or indirectly modeled their own bar associations after the New York State Bar Association. The association has been connecting clients with the state’s best attorneys for over 130 years. With more than 72,000 members, it is also one of the largest state bar associations in the country today.

For his part, Goldstein has stated that he will spend the majority of his time as head of his own law firm, concentrating on providing the same services that he was able to provide the largest companies in America with to small and medium-sized business owners.

With this, Goldstein hopes to fill an important legal niche that’s been created over the last few years.

Eva Moskowitz shows the world what Success Academy students do all day

Success Academy is the largest charter school network in New York and currently the most successful. It operates 41 schools, with three more set to open in the next year, and educates over 14,000 New York children.

 

The Academy was started by Eva Moskowitz, the CEO of Success Academy, and a former educator who saw how poorly the city’s education system was doing in educating its children. So she started her own charter school network to improve on it.

 

Eleven years later, and Eva Moskowitz and her Success Academy are known around the country as just about the most high-profile examples of how a good education system for every child is possible.

 

While Eva Moskowitz has been successful with Success Academy, however, people have often asked how are their students able to get such high test scores and what do they do all day?

 

In a new project just launched, Eva Moskowitz intends to answer those questions once and for all.

 

The project is called Education Institute, and is an online platform that allows educators from all over the country to access the Academy’s curriculum and teaching materials and see exactly what Success Academy students do all day.

 

As Eva Moskowitz believes every educator should have access to the best resources if they are to teach their students well, she is also making all of the information completely free to any educator that wants it.

 

To get access to Education Institute, familiarly known as Ed Institute, educators simply have to sign up for it on the Success Academy website.

 

They will then be able to access any of the Academy’s curriculum and educational materials, as well as new materials that will go up all the time.

 

After all, if every child in America cannot currently be accepted at a Success Academy school, then Eva Moskowitz surmises why not take the school and its education system to them?

How Securus Technologies Closed a Criminal Investigation

Trying to close a cold case can take me and my team days, weeks, or even years, all dependent on the leads and cooperation we get during that investigation. I was in charge of working one case where the suspect basically vanished into thin air after jumping bail, and his new identity meant he could be here in the city or thousands of miles away. I was getting heat to get this case closed, so I turned to some unconventional methods to get help.

 

The team at Securus Technologies had recently installed a new inmate call system in our local prison, and it was about time I was trained to use the LBS software to help in the investigation. The CEO of Securus Technologies, Ricard Smith, says that his 1,000 employees out of the Texas-based company all have but one objective, making this world safer for us all. We were going to see if that was true.

 

Once I was able to understand how the inmate call system could help, it made things easier. The software that monitors chatter between inmates on the phone does the work of dozen of corrections officers, identifying key verbiage that is needed in certain investigations. No sooner did we input the name of our suspect, we started to get hits. The covert alert feature pointed us in a very unlikely direction. It appears our suspect had his name changed but he was working for a landscaping company here in town.

 

The Securus Technologies system detected talk between a relative who was inquiring with his family about the suspect, not thinking anyone was listening or really caring about him. That tip lead us to the company early one day where we found our suspect working on a property, needless to say he was escorted to prison where he sits today.

Talos Energy Kicks Oil and Gas Mining up a Notch

The combined efforts of Huston’s Talos Energy LLC, London- based Premier Oil Plc. and Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas have brought forth a new milestone in the energy markets. Together, they have sunk an offshore oil well in Mexican water, this being the first time in nearly 80 years such an operation has been done by a private company. The previous one had been carried out in 1938 by Petroleos Mexicanos, a state run monopoly.

Statements released by Premier confirm that the Zama-1 well, found in the Sureste Basin near the state of Tabasco, will yield crude oil in the region of 100 million to 500 million barrels. The project, which kicked off on 21st May 2017, was expected to go on for the following 90 days consuming about $16 million. The trio had won the rights to the mining prospect in 2015 after Mexico allowed private investors to venture into its ailing oil industry. The trio’s project is expected to yield success given the structure of the basin.

Talos energy is the operator of the well on owns 35% stake with Sierra and Premier owning 40% and 25% respectively. The operator, which is a private oil and gas mining company, which has a close interest in the acquisition of gas and oil in areas around the Gulf of Mexico and Gulf Coast, is headquartered in Houston. Talos part of the company of funds related to Apollo Global Management.

Talos Energy was born as a result of the merger of Tim Duncan and other partners who contributed $600 million that was used to fund the company. The money had been sourced from assets in the Gulf of Mexico, which in 2016 produced 16,000 barrels of oil per day. Talos was named by WorkplaceDyanmics as the best workplace from which local small businesses could thrive. Duncan, as the leader of the company, was keen on rewarding the risk and talent from the team involved: geoscientists, receptionists and the many other employees who were part of the headquarters in Houston. He further awarded bonuses to those who worked hard or played hard during the Friday Happy Hours.
