Empower Kids to Prevent Racially Motivated Bullying

YourUpdateTV

All kids connected with bullying—those who experience it, engage in it, and even witness it—can suffer long-term mental health consequences. Recently, VP of Education, Research, and Impact at Committee for Children & Mom of 2, Dr. Tia Kim, participated in a satellite media tour campaign to talk about racially motivated bullying and ways to empower kids to activate their upstander power. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/WKlo9vIaKdk It's back-to-school season and it's never too early to start talking to kids about racially motivated bullying and empower them to recognize, report, and refuse it so they are set up to make responsible decisions and thrive. Committee for Children is launching its fifth annual Captain Compassion campaign during National Bullying Prevention Month to teach kids how to prevent bullying in all forms, with a special emphasis on behavior motivated by racial bias. Developed by Committee for Children in 2018, Captain Compassion is an anti-bullying superhero who teaches upstanders how to recognize, report, and refuse bullying through a series of engaging, age-appropriate comic strips. One out of five students report being bullied during the school year. In 2019, of the students who reported being bullied, race was the most frequently reported characteristic referred to by hate-related words. To help address this issue, this year’s Captain Compassion comics focus on a school community that’s struggling with the social-emotional effects of racially motivated bullying. With the help of Captain Compassion and her trusty sidekick Kid Kinder®, the entire school community learns how to stand up against bullying to create safe, welcoming, and inclusive environments where children of all backgrounds can thrive. Drawn from Committee for Children’s decades of work in the field of bullying prevention, the Captain Compassion campaign presents free, award-winning comics that provide families, teachers, and caregivers with powerful, research-backed tips to empower their children and communities to stand up to bullying. The Captain Compassion site also includes resources like a Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle for kids, informative videos, downloadable posters, and more. To learn more about Captain Compassion and bullying prevention, visit CaptainCompassion.org each week this October to read brand-new comics and solve the Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle with the children in your life. To learn more about social-emotional learning and Committee for Children, visit cfchildren.org Tia Kim, PhD Bio: Vice President of Education, Research, and Impact Dr. Tia Kim is a developmental psychologist, a parent-child relationship expert, and a mom of two. She believes in a strong family foundation, open lines of communication, and the critical role that parent-child relationships play in children’s safety and well-being. With her experience as a parent, education research scientist, and psychologist, Dr. Kim aims to provide families with simple, research-based tips and insights to help them start conversations about bullying prevention. Dr. Kim began her career in academia but later decided she wanted to see her research in action helping children and youth. Today, she leads Committee for Children’s team of research scientists to develop and evaluate the quality, effectiveness, and impact of the organization’s social-emotional learning programs and family engagement work, including this year’s bullying prevention campaign, Captain Compassion.

Homeowners Gained $60,200 In Equity On Average This Year — Blend’s New Digitized Home Equity Lending Software Will Make Accessing That Easier Than Ever

Blend Labs Inc.

Home equity in the United States hit record levels this year, exceeding $29 trillion in the second quarter, according to the Federal Reserve. That represents a gain of nearly 28% in equity year over year, with the average homeowner gaining about $60,200 in equity. But sky-high inflation and a clunky, outdated lending process have made using that equity difficult for many homeowners. These opposing forces are creating increased demand for financial products — especially home equity lines of credit (HELOCs) — that allow homeowners enjoying near-unprecedented home equity gains to tap into that new equity while banks struggle with an outdated, largely paper-based application process to approve new HELOC and home equity loan requests. That’s why companies like Blend Labs Inc. (NYSE: BLND) are working to digitize the home equity lending space. The cloud-based software platform turns a slow, 30-plus step process from application to funding into a quick process that can be completed in about three steps. HELOC Demand Is Surging, But Banks Are Still Relying On Outdated Paper-Based Applications HELOC volume surged almost 50% in the first half of the year, as the revolving line of credit with a variable rate and, usually, no origination fee is more attractive than a cash-out refinance for borrowers who locked in historically low rates on their original mortgage in the last few years. Homeowners are looking to leverage this spike in home equity to consolidate high-interest debts into lower-interest home equity lines of credit, make home renovations that could increase equity even further or use as a down payment on a second property to build up a real estate portfolio. That increase in HELOC volume is likely also thanks to the introduction of digital or tech-based solutions to the mortgage space that make it easier for customers to shop around for financial products, compare rates and offers and complete the application process. Traditionally, home equity lending has been slow to modernize, relying on a paper-based process with an average of 30 or more steps between application and funding that can take over 45 days to close. A lot of this is because of the clunky manual process on the bank’s side that leaves the customer waiting while a banker reviews the application, verifies assets and income, pulls credit, requests documents and so on. To meet the increasing demand, banks with the help of fintechs are finally taking this opportunity to update and digitize that process so homeowners can tap into their equity faster and more easily. Figure Technologies Inc. (NYSE: FACA.U), for example, is using blockchain technology to record and exchange data about a loan, automating much of the manual process that used to be needed. Meanwhile, Button Finance is using artificial intelligence to speed up the decision-making and funding process for home equity loans. Blend Instant Home Equity Brings Much-Needed Digitization to Home Equity Lending Blend Instant Home Equity is the latest from a company determined to bring digitization and tech-based solutions to the real estate and mortgage industries. The new product incorporates some of Blend’s existing software, like its Blend Income Verification and remote online notarization platform, to create a faster and more cost-effective alternative to home equity lending. The automated end-to-end product integrates identity and income verification, property appraisal, title, decisioning and notarization to cut the time and costs associated with processing a home equity loan application. For bankers, this makes it possible to generate a personalized offer for homeowners, approve it instantly and close it in a matter of days rather than weeks. For consumers, this means they can now easily access their home equity for things like debt consolidation and more. Unlike other fintechs in the home equity lending space, Blend uses modular architecture that makes it easy to develop new banking products that all integrate into one platform. This allows banks to digitize more of their services without relying on multiple pieces of software that may not integrate with each other. Banks incorporating the new Blend Instant Home Equity product can easily add its mortgage and other lending software. That ecosystem approach seems to be working, too, as Blend reports that 71% of its current customer base uses two or more Blend products. As competition in home equity lending heats up, banks are going to need digitization tools like these to handle larger volumes of applications while avoiding the long wait times that could drive customers to competing lenders. Powering the Future of Banking Blend is the infrastructure powering the future of banking. Financial providers—from the largest banks, fintechs, and credit unions to community and independent mortgage banks—use Blend’s platform to transform banking experiences for their customers. Blend powers billions of dollars in financial transactions every day. This post contains sponsored advertising content.

Who Might Benefit from Staggering Gaming Growth Projections?

ESE Entertainment Inc

ValueTheMarkets News Commentary - With the gaming market projected to expand from $178bn to $267bn between 2021 and 2025, well-positioned service providers to this industry could reap the benefits. This article discusses the issue with reference to Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and ESE Entertainment (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQX: ENTEF). ESE Entertainment (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQX: ENTEF) is an entertainment and technology company focused on gaming and esports. In particular, the business is concerned with player acquisition services and the creation and distribution of digital content. In short, the company are experts in programmatic marketing for the videogames industry. With its targeted programmatic campaigns, the business is clocking up more than 7.3 billion impressions and sourcing 500,000 new players each month using its sophisticated technology. These figures have helped attract the attention of some of the biggest names in the industry and seen ESE Entertainment source legions of players for their games. For example, projects for Roblox and Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming helped bring in 3.6 million and 2 million new players respectively. On the back of these successes, ESE Entertainment has just announced a US$5m contract to deliver its technology and user acquisition services to a major European video game developer and publisher who is a new customer for the business. The company’s CEO, Conrad Wasiela, commented: “This is yet another example of us executing and securing new long-term multimillion dollar contracts for our gaming technology. “We are keenly focused on increasing sales and improving margins, and we believe landing larger technology contracts is the key to achieving these goals. We are excited to continue updating current and future shareholders with new developments at ESE.” It’s the latest update following a slew of positive news from ESE Entertainment, with its recent record-breaking third quarter financial earnings showing 276% revenue growth to CA$15.9m. Gross profit soared too, climbing by 595% to CA$3.1m after the business signed 25 new deals so far this year. The business will be hoping that its customer acquisition expertise and technology will make it a key partner for major developers in the coming years. Apple Inc ( NASDAQ: AAPL ) designs, manufactures and markets smartphones, personal computers, tablets, wearables and accessories. The company also offers payment, digital content, cloud and advertising services. The business’ customers are primarily in consumer, small & mid-sized business, education, enterprise and government markets worldwide. A key way in which Apple Inc is poised to enjoy the gaming boom is through its App Store. The platform is already a major money-spinner for the tech giant and it reportedly features more than one million games alongside other applications. The company has confirmed that it is hiking prices on the App Store platform though, noting that a “slower economy” has impacted revenues. Additionally, the platform is becoming more ad-heavy as Apple Inc looks for more ways to increase revenue. While the company has a tight grasp on consumers through the popularity of its iPhones, it seems like these changes to its mobile gaming platform could hurt its popularity among both gamers and developers. Additionally, while Apple Inc’s iPhone is still enormously popular, the business appears to have had some issues with sales of its new model. Late September saw Bloomberg report that the company was shelving plans to hike production of the iPhone 14 after initially overestimating demand. The business will be hoping that this is merely a blip and not an indicator that its products are losing their appeal. Nvidia ( NASDAQ: NVDA ) designs, develops and markets three-dimensional graphics processors and related software. The company offers products that provide interactive 3D graphics to the mainstream personal computer market. The primary way in which this business enjoys exposure to the videogames industry is through its graphics cards, which are present in many gamers’ computers. These include top-of-the-line chips that utilize advance technology like artificial intelligence but can set users back over $1,500 apiece. In addition to its work on the hardware side of things, Nvidia works with videogame developers through offerings like Omniverse, the company’s real-time design collaboration and simulation platform. The idea behind Nvidia’s software is that it can help artists and designers enjoy more seamless collaboration within the development process as gaming industry progress leads projects to become increasingly complex and challenging. But the omniverse platform is just one of many software applications developed by Nvidia for use by game developers. The company’s expansive suite of game development tools include applications for simulation, asset processing, lighting and 3D creation platforms. The business will be hoping that continued growth in gaming industry revenues will bleed through to both its hardware and software development offerings. Jeff Bezos’ Amazon ( NASDAQ: AMZN ) is an online retailer that offers a wide range of products, including books, music, computers, electronics and numerous other products. The business offers personalized shopping services, Web-based credit card payment and direct shipping to customers. The company also operates a cloud platform offering services globally. While Amazon is perhaps best known for its ecommerce and video streaming service offerings, the company also offers services for videogame development. These come through Amazon Web Services (AWS), the business’ cloud computing platform. The company has boasted that its AWS for Games solution will help developers build, run, and grow their games through dedicated solutions for cloud game development, game servers, game security and more besides. The dedicated gaming offering, which Amazon announced the launch of in March 2022, could be very successful as the company claimed in its most recent earnings that AWS is already the most broadly adopted set of cloud infrastructure services. While the business now has tools on offer for other game developers, the business has also tried its hand at creating games itself. Increasingly ambitious titles from the Amazon Games subsidiary have included New World and Lost Ark. Things haven’t all been plain sailing at the game studio though, with reports last year suggesting workers at the studio faced “draconian” limitations on their own personal projects.

5 Best Resume Writing Services: Reviews of the Professional Companies Near You

Resume Builders

Getting started on a job does not come automatically. It begins with an application process for the same role. And a major part of this procedure is submitting a well-written resume. Otherwise called a CV, your resume is one of the essential documents you present in a job search or application for opportunities. As a matter of fact, it is the most important document in the entire procedure. It can make or mar your application process for that fellowship, postgraduate studies, internship, or other work-related bids. Thus, you need your resume to be in top form consistently. But here's the twist, not everyone knows how to write a resume. It is a technical document. Thus, you might find it challenging to write. In fact, if you do, sometimes you have a greater chance of shortchanging yourself. Why? Because it might not pass the ATS. That is the Application Tracking System. And guess what? Most companies now use this tech mechanism to weed through irrelevant and not-well-written resumes submitted through their application portals. Do you want to be a part of these unscreened resumes? I bet not. This is why you need to get an expert to work on your resume, don't you think? Speaking of resume-writing experts, this is what this article centers around. Oh, you will love this!

And the prices, as with other online writing services, vary depending on your grade. That, the career level for which you are writing the resume would largely determine the price range with which your work would be written. But not only that, other factors could affect the price of your work. One is if the deadline for which you need the resume is shorter than the usual time that the platform stipulates that the work would be ready. Thus, you might have to pay an extra fee to fast-track the writing. Hence, the price is jerked up. Also, 101Resumes stands as a specialized company. They maintain writing solely career-related technical documents. That is, resumes, cover letters, and CVs. Thus, seeing that their expert writers are targeted in that direction, they churn out more quality works based on this expertise than other services that render additional services.

They have shown many new online writing services that a platform can have students and job applicants flock to their websites to get their resume writing done. And guess what? They always deliver excellently. This resume writing platform is available to take all writing services because of its team of professional freelance writers. They are simply good at what they do. Thus, it makes it easier to get high-quality work from them every time they write. A good thing here is that Studdit has a great in-house culture of treating their writers well. Thus, they are more than enthusiastic about delivering promptly as they are given tasks. Sources note that you will never be given a new order to work on as a writer unless you finish a previous one on your hands. Writers are rewarded when they bring clients to the platform.

Anyone conscious of the market's price trends, especially among online writing services, will attest to this being a low price.

They are not new to the space. Thus, they have many reviews to their credit. Many a client have established a trust connection with them over the years. And the reason for this is not far-fetched. It is hinged upon that they deliver premium quality jobs when their work is ordered. They are not just fundamental in their approach to customer satisfaction. They are with you every step until your job gets to the finished stage. Why are they trusted in the market? Because they have distinguished themselves when it comes to pricing, discount programs, excellent deliveries, and outstanding customer satisfaction. These are basic things to note when you want to order from any professional executive resume writing service around. The excellent delivery they pride themselves in is owing to a competent team of professional writers. And even though 99Papers has academic writing as the major aspect of their writing services, they still offer additional career-related services such as personal statements and resume writing. And with expert freelance writers from New York not being novices in the market, they are reliable to churn in excellent deliveries consistently on the platform. Another major reason most people patronize them is the pricing. With $12.60, you would get a standard resume with 15-day delivery. And for their premium plan, you get to pay $22.05 for their 15-day delivery resume. And just like many other platforms, many dynamics are at play around the pricing. A good example is a deadline. You are charged extra fees if it is shorter than what's stipulated in the service. The same goes for your career level. A high-schooler resume's price is lower than an executive-level CV. And with many customer reviews online, you will conclude that 99Papers is the hub of high-quality resumes for executives. Furthermore, this specific platform has a bidding system where you pick the writer that works on your resume. It is after this phase that you get charged on their website. And yes, they have a loyalty program that affords you a 5% discount on each resume you order. And you can make use of this discount on future orders as well. However, this discount only lasts for a total of 5 years. To get access to a lifetime discount, you might need to prep your wallet for that. #5.

Resume writing is the act of creating your resume. As simple as this sounds, it fully captures the entire process. A resume in itself is a formal document that iterates your qualifications for a specific role you are looking to apply for. It highlights the most relevant information in your career pursuits that positions you as the best candidate for the position you are applying for. It is mainly accompanied by a cover letter expressing your interest in applying for that role. Noteworthy is the fact that most recruiters advocate for resumes to be one-paged or two-paged at most. Writing a resume is a process that requires careful detailing of specifics. This information is tailored particularly to the given role being applied for. Thus, as much as you could have a general resume, it is advisable to have specific resumes for each job application. The writers in these services help you highlight the best possible qualifications, background information, job history, certifications, and other details that make you a perfect fit for the role you are looking to occupy. They take your information and convert it into a page that helps to endear you to the recruiter. Resume writing involves some form of technical templates to follow. Many recruiters will prefer it to be chronological. That is, it contains your recent job history in the order you took them on, as it relates to the current role. Also, it includes neatly arranged headings and sub-headings, margins, active language uses, and highlights of important achievements. Note that a resume makes use of professional fonts. How much does it cost to hire someone to write a resume? First, hiring someone to write a resume is a promising venture everyone should invest in. However, how much that costs now depends on each writer hired to write the resume. To write your resume, each writing service charges differently. However, one thing that stays consistent is the excellence of the delivery. The price also differs based on the peculiarities of the work. For instance, the price of writing a resume with a shorter deadline would be different than that which was delivered on the number of days stipulated by the writing platform. The same goes for the type of grade the resume is written for. The career level is a major determinant of the price range of hiring a writer on some of these professional writing services to craft an excellent resume. The price for a high schooler is way less than that of an executive client. Further, as noted earlier, different companies write resumes for different prices. 99Papers, for example, writes theirs for $12.60 with a 15-day delivery timeline. While with PaperHelp, you can get an excellent resume starting from $45. For Studdit, their price for a professional resume is about $20. So, it all boils down to checking out what platform works best for you. Their offering for their prices also matters. So, how much you should pay a resume service near you is not fixed or static. It depends on what each writing service offers and if you can get more for less. Is it worth paying for resume service? Definitely! One might even say it is more than worth paying for resume service. Writing a resume is a technical job. And thus, it requires a lot of expertise to be done well.

However, if an experienced writer takes on the job for you, your chances of being an A student drastically increase. Similarly, a resume is a major document you need to get the job of your dreams.

Thus, you position yourself to enjoy the results of getting your resume written by a specialist.
