Rocketship Education is bringing a revolution in American public charter schools learning. The Rocketship Education program aims at providing quality education to children from underprivileged homes who are attending schools which are not performing well. The education program has been supported by many personalities who support quality education. Some of them include Andre Agassi who is a renowned tennis player.

The star recently opened the new Rocketship Rise Academy in the Woodland Terrace in the southeast area of Washington D.C. Agassi thought of developing charter schools after an unproductive phase in his life. That is when he felt that unfortunate children lack the choice of developing in life because of the type of background they come from.

So far the talented tennis player has managed to build twelve charter schools in the Las Vegas area alone. Agassi collaborated with Robert Turner who is his partner, and together they formed the Turner-Agassi Charter School Facilities Fund. It is through this fund that they are able to pay for the charter schools across America. The new school is the 69th school that they have constructed through this fund and they plan to make many other schools.

The Rocketship Education Fund is also present in the San Jose area. The non-profit establishment has led to the construction of up to twenty-five public charter schools in the area. These schools are all performing well, and they are designed to prepare the child from the low-income communities with an equal opportunity in life. Some public schools in the area are even partnering with the Rocketship Education schools in order to boost the performance of their students.

Influential people in the San Jose society are also lending a hand in educating the local children. Reed Hastings has a hundred million dollars education fund that support education in the area. Mark Zuckerberg who is Facebook’s CEO and his spouse Priscilla Chan are also committed to supporting education funds.

Why I’m Thrilled at the Latest Honey Birdette News!

I was quite pleased to read an article in The Industry London announcing some major growth in the works for Australia based sensuality boutique Honey Birdette. While I have not visited the store myself, I have made several online purchases and have heard wonderful things from friends who have made it beyond the black doors of a Honey Birdette boutique.

Honey Birdette is Australia’s first lingerie boutique store and there are currently 55 locations in Australia. There are also three that were opened in the United Kingdom last year: one in London’s Covenant Garden, one in Leeds’ Victorias Gate and on in Westfield. The locations in the UK apparently have done very well in the less than one year period they have been open. The article stated that Honey Birdette would continue its UK domination by adding additional stores in multiple phases until there were 40 total locations in the UK. The project goal is to be completed with all UK locations by the end of next year (2018).

Construction will begin on the first phase of stores, which includes Liverpool, Leeds and Westfield Stratford and then will continue on to the second phase.

I live in the United States, so I was particularly pleased to read the second part of the article, announcing that the brand new US centric Honey Birdette website was now live! I was a part (albeit a small part) of the whopping 375% growth the article stated that HB saw in US sales over the past 12 months. This comes as no surprie, as it seems to be becoming more and more of a household name among women in the US.

The US website will give us free shipping on purchases over $50 and faster shipping. I have my fingers crossed for a US retail location to open in the near future!

– Provide an entertaining presentation.

– Keep the presentation simple.

– Have everyone on board at the presentation.


All of that will help you to be a success. Here’s why. Marc Sparks says that you have to realize that graphics are pretty. They offer a presentation which can be entertaining, but it can also take too much time for the presentation. You could bore the people that are watching. If those are your potential clients, then you can only imagine the disastrous results. Also make sure that everyone in the new start-up is at the presentation. You don’t want people to think they are buying into one thing, then discover that it is completely different. So keep it streamlined and have everyone there. Forget the big fancy show. Learn more:


Nobody likes a company that is too full of themselves, but you must be convincing. You have to be able to sell your product or service convincingly. There has to be something of substance which the audience is attracted to. Think of the time when you were won over in a presentation. What did it for you? That’s what you need to do for them. That way, like Marc Sparks has done, you too can be an entrepreneur that is successful. You too can inspire people to be their very best. That is how you can become what you have always imagined in your mind. Live the life you were meant for, rather than the one which is hard and time-consuming.

Talos Energy Oil Well Venture

Mexico’s Sierra Oil & Gas; Premier Oil from London; and Houston-based Talos Energy LLC ventured together to create an oil well in the Gulf of Mexico. The project began on May 21, and is the first of its kind in more than 80 years. The operation is manned by Talos Energy, who holds a 35% stake. Sierra Oil holds a 40% stake, and 25% of the stake belongs to Premier.

An Oil Well Worth Talking About

Although the state-run company Petroleos Mexicanos has launched a few oil wells over the past 80 years, none have been as large as this project. It was in 1938 that the last oil well project occurred. Talos Energy decided to dig the oil well in hopes of introducing foreign energy competition and trade.

It didn’t take long for results after the work egan. Just one month into the project, Talos reported they’d discovered oil within the waters. Although it was expected that oil would be discovered, it occurred far earlier than anticipated. It is certainly good news all around the board. The oil discovery was made at 546-foot into the ground, approximately 37-miles from the Port of Dos Bocas. A ENSCO 8503 floating drill rig was used to make the discovery.

Who is Talos Energy?

Talos Energy is an independent oil and energy company that first began serving customers in 2012. The company opened their doors with the sole purpose of acquiring assets from the Gulf of Mexico. The company employees many agents who specialize in the Gulf of Mexico and the oil that is created within the perimeters. The Gulf of Mexico oil well project is one of many conducted by Talos Energy. It is safe to say this company is helping the world move in a great direction.
