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?

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.

Cleansing Conditioner That Looks Good

In an article written for the website Bustle by fashion and beauty contributor Emily McClure, high end hair care product WEN by Chaz Dean Cleansing Conditioner is put under the microscope to see how it effects those with thinner hair and if it lives up to expectations. Intrigued by the infomercials from Sephora promising that the product can be used for all hair types, McClure took the cleanser for a seven day test drive. Her results showcase the abilities of this cleanser to, with proper usage, effectively create bounce and luster even on finer heads of hair.
McClure decided to conduct an experiment to test Wen‘s effects on her fine hair over the course of a week.  After discovering exactly how the cleanser reacts to her hair, she is able to develop a routine throughout the week that allows for this optimal result daily, and deems Wen Cleansing Conditioner a product to use for days when she opts to put forth a little extra effort into her hairstyle. Overall, McClure deems Wen Cleansing Conditioner to be ultimately true to its word, claiming that it successfully transforms thin, more delicate locks into a full head of healthy looking hair. WEN is available on Guthy-Renker.
