Talk Fusion: Be Yourself

 

From the day you were born, you were probably told to get a job, any joy, keep that job, and love that job, no matter what it was. It was probably instilled in you and because of this, you might have played it safe. You took the job that offered you security as opposed to happiness. As the old adage goes, you can’t put a price tag on happiness. It either exists for you or it doesn’t. When it does exist, there is no better feeling in the world than having genuine happiness. People can tell when you are unhappy or something isn’t right. They have been around you long enough to know you and truly understand you. Because of this, when they see you happy, they are happy for you.

Shaygan Kheradpir Declares More Technology Opens Opportunities for Young Minds

Ask Shaygan Kheradpir his thoughts on technology in the classroom and he’ll tell you the future is digital. To encourage forward-thinking, cutting-edge innovation you have to start young. Today’s teens are digital natives, and chances are they’re more technologically advanced than you. Imagine the opportunities available when you enhance a child’s education at a young age.

Few people know that Bill Gates of Microsoft started programming as an eighth-grader to beat boredom. Those futile archaic computer terminals became the catalysts for Microsoft. What if parents advocated access to technology back then? Fast-forward to today and it’s clear why Shaygan Kheradpir is an advocate for digital classrooms.

Breaking Barriers with Online Technology

With the click of a mouse, children with a passion for learning have the ability to knock down barriers imposed by income, distance or class offerings. That innovation has been propelled in part by former Verizon executive, Shaygan Kheradpir. Kheradpir and a staff of 7000 launched Verizon FIOS, which enabled access to internet at breakneck speeds. The business maverick also slashed overhead costs, improved automated services, and implemented a new system for rapid deployment of new Verizon initiatives. Considered one of the most significant figures in the evolution of technology, Shaygan Kheradpir catapulted Verizon to the head of the line for telecommunications services.

Expanding technology into education brings a number of benefits that not only helps to improve efficiency and productivity in the classroom, but also boosts the interest of children in academic activities. Technology in today’s educational setting allows the use of more interactive tools that can easily keep students attention.

In addition, social networks and other forums motivate kids to share views and discuss ideas, which helps children develop critical thinking. Interactive boards, virtual classrooms, and a host of electronic resources are in place to encourage students to express themselves, and interact with others, either in person or online. Another advantage of using technology in the classroom is its flexibility and adaptability, which allows students to continue their learning at a different pace.

Can Your Child Code Yet

A global educational trend right now is to teach a basic programming language to children starting at the young age of five. And forget those old computer lessons with perplexing protocols because initiatives like code.org offers children online lessons adapted to different age groups. As our world becomes more technology oriented, educators face not only teaching children to use computers, but also how to build and program them. “The language of the future includes programming and the sooner children begin to explore and learn the better,” says Kheradpir.

Fortunately, the online arena offers a number of resources to learn programming for students from K-12, in addition to resources for teachers:

  • Lego Mindstorms – easy environment to program robots
  • Scratch – a graphical programming language for children 8 and older, created by the MIT Media Lab
  • Tynker – create everything from games to animated films

And there are dozens more websites ranging from easy to more complex programming lessons.

There are many reasons for wanting to teach our children programming and advance their learning in digital technology, but none is more pressing than preparing them for a technologically-oriented future.

Stephen Murray’s Leadership Of CCMP Capital

Stephen Murray CCMP Capital was a great investment strategist, credit analyst, buyout guru and great leader in the business world, particularly in private equities. Through his leadership, investment firm CCMP Capital made big steps in the markets by raising funds and providing a platform for companies to use capital and succeed. The companies they’ve sponsored include Cabela’s, Ollie’s Bargain Outlet, Pinnacle Foods, The Hillman Group and many other retailers that make up a rich portfolio for CCMP. In fact some of CCMP’s chair members and executives are former managers of retail and fast food franchise outlets including Greg Brenneman their current CEO, and Doug Cahill a managing director. But none of CCMP’s current holdings would’ve been possible without Stephen Murray’s expertise.

Murray had a knack for making excellent decisions and superb deals. He began his journey as an investor upon graduating Boston College and joining Manufacturers Hanover Bank as a credit analyst. His savvy work got him promoted quickly to Vice President of the bank’s leveraged-finance firm, and there he got into private equity investments and asset management. Manufacturers Hanover became Chemical Bank, which was soon purchased by Chase Bank of Manhattan, and all of these soon became one conglomerate of JP Morgan. Murray soon was head of the buyout division, a department that although owned by JP Morgan and even titled JP Morgan & Partners LLC, had some autonomy within the bank itself.

JP Morgan & Partners operated under the parent bank for about 6 years, but due to some conflict of interest concerns, they decided to split off and become an independent firm though they still conduct business with the bank. The firm became known as CCMP, an acronym that combined all of their previous bank names into one and Murray was CEO of CCMP for over 7 years. The firm had no trouble attracting private equity investors and in a short time, they attracted $3.4 billion funds in 2007 topped later by 3.6 billion at the closing quarter of 2014.

Murray was highly respected and commended for his work with CCMP, but it unfortunately came to an end early in 2015 when health problems forced him to retire and eventually caused his passing away. Brenneman offered sincere condolences and counts Murray as a great leader and friend, hoping to continue the direction of the company that Murray started. Murray also did philanthropy for the Make-A-Wish Foundation and local food banks.
