It is a fact that the traditional education system is full of a bunch of hacks. Corruption is widespread, and changes are impossible to enact because too many bureaucrats have their hands out. People are afraid to rock the boat and to open their mouths about things that should be done.
This hackery and corruption also exists in other parts of society when it comes to low income, inner city places. It results in children being in socially toxic neighborhoods that are run down. It also results in schools that are like prisons where children are constantly in danger of being assaulted and harassed.
Rocketship Education tries to make neighborhoods less socially toxic by providing children with kind, nurturing, supportive schools where consistency and self empowerment are encouraged. Disparaging conditions sometimes make children think that there isn’t much more than their surroundings. Rocketship Education teaches the kids that there is more than just their surroundings, and that they have the power to boost themselves into better circumstances.
The charter schools create a good mix of relaxed circumstances mixed with rigidity. The rigidity comes in the form of mandatory uniforms, rotations of four different subjects each day and children being well-supervised. However, the rhythm of the day is very relaxed, and there is a very upbeat attitude. Rocketship Education’s facilities are very clean and well-organized. It is very important to maintain a clean environment because then children may take things more seriously. The teachers are very committed and upbeat about teaching the children, and it shows in the successes of Rocketship Education.
Rocketship Education’s student body is mostly low income. The percentage of low-income is 82%. Most children come from underprivileged ethnic and racial backgrounds. Most or all pictures on the internet of Rocketship Education show student bodies that consist of Latinos and blacks.
Sahm Adrangi is the Chief Investor at Kerrisdale Capital management. He has recently increased the company’s investment in Luxoft HLDG Inc to 19.27%. Sahm Adrangi had up to seven hundred thirty four thousand and thirty six shares as of the last reported quarter. The value of those shares was estimated at nearly thirty million dollars. He led the purchase for the company due to a twenty six percent drop in their stock value at the time. Under Sahm Adrangi’s guidance, the Kerrisdale company purchased one hundred eighteen thousand and six hundred shares of Luxoft HLDG Inc.
This might not have been a wise choice. The Luxoft HLDG Inc company has been caught in a downward spiral for months. The stock that Sahm purchased did rise in price by .56% but the company has continued to spiral downward in value since July of 2017. The company has bounced back in the past. So, only time will tell if the choice to purchase such large amounts of stock was a good one or not. Sahm Adrangi is an expert investor, though. So, he might have made a great investment choice and the downward price trend of stock can rise back up to make it profitable.
To highlight Sahm’s expertise, here is some information about his recent evaluation of the St. Joe’s company. St. Joe’s is a real estate development company in Panama Beach, Florida. Sahm Adrangi says that their one billion dollar value is incorrect. Sahm says that the company is actually worth forty percent less than one billion due to several issues. They have been slow to develop the property that they do own, their property has hard-to-develop swamp land, and they’re having major issues with their largest investor. That makes it harder to warrant their one billion dollar evaluation because there are so many glaring issues working against them. It’s not a very bright outlook for St. Joe’s, but Sahm Adrangi is an expert investor and his opinions are based on fact and an education prediction based on the company’s current state.

Dilma Rouseff is expected to lose the election. The chances of him winning the election will be less than they were at the day Gareth Henry was speaking before the Alpha Hedge West conference. With the change in leadership there is supposed to be a change in the economics of Brazil.
With the potential of a new Brazilian president, there will be a shift in Brazilian assets. This shift is expected to be an upward shift. There will be numerous assets to look at in the near future.
Other than Brazil being a sound investment, Henry thinks Japan and Scotland are worth looking into as well. There are various excellent ventures for investors in both nations.
Prime Minister of Japan Shinzo Abe will create a shift in the economics of the nation. This is supposed to be one of the best shifts at Japan and investors in Japan have seen in a long time.
Investors can take a look at Scotland because of the turmoil that ensued over the recent shift in the vote for independence. This is supposed to make a shift in the economics of Scotland. This is going to be one of the biggest upward shifts investors will see a long time coming.

EDM-pop superstars The Chainsmokers, Alex Pall (the Chainsmokers DJ) and Andrew Taggart (the Chainsmokers producer) , have been around on the scene since 2012, with songs from Taggart circulating around Soundcloud while being an intern at Interscope Records and Pall working at an art gallery before the two eventually met through Pall’s manager Adam Alpert. However, they picked up steam with songs such as #Selfie and Roses in 2014 and 2015, in that order, rising to even greater heights with international smashes like “Don’t Let Me Down” and their Billboard number-one “Closer”, the former of which won the Grammy for Best Dance Recording. Nowadays, they tour the world performing in festivals and stadiums of all kinds and collaborating with the likes of Coldplay as well as Halsey. They also have two EPs (Bouquet and Collage, respectively) and a debut album (Memories…Do Not Open) under their belt on top of a three-year long Vegas residency and a plethora of accolades including eight iHeartRadio Music Awards, seven Billboard Music Awards and two American Music Awards to name a few. The duo’s most recent single, Side Effects which has Riverdale star Camila Mendes as the lead of the music video, is a far cry from the slow-moving EDM-pop-centric sound of their past work. Featuring longtime collaborater Emily Warren, Side Effects is an uptempo glimmering disco-funk earworm about the ups and downs of modern-day relationships ready for the radio and parties across the states and the world at large. Unlike songs like Sick Boy and You Owe me, which take a decidedly darker turn, reflecting the winter time it was released in and tackling personal issues the duo were going through at the time, Side Effects is a certifiable summer jam that is sure to rule the summer this and every following year.
