DataSeers founder and CEO Adwait Joshi cut the ribbon on a new Alpharetta office Jan. 24 with the help of Mayor Jim Gilvin. In much the same way, he plans to inaugurate an office in Mumbai, India, in early February. After ringing in the new year, metro Atlanta-based DataSeers is wasting no time getting started on its resolutions. Just in the last two months, it has checked off two major milestones: graduating from the Tech Alpharetta incubator in December, followed by gaining recognition in January as one of the Technology Association of Georgia’s 40 most innovative firms. But even at this early and hectic stage, its next big move is expanding its footprint in Asia, despite that fact that it has just eight employees at home. The financial technology firm, which provides a reconciliation, analytics and fraud-prevention engine (FinanSeer) for mainly for banks and processors of prepaid payments, held a grand opening on a new 2,000-square-foot Alpharetta … [Read more...] about Alpharetta to Asia: Atlanta Fintech Firm DataSeers to Accelerate Growth With India Office

View Comments A business-backed financial literacy program teaches 30,000 students - now including Portland Community College students - finance basics. Financial Beginnings, a financial literacy organization that recently expanded to include Portland Community College students like him, became one of his successes since growing sober and rebuilding his life, Prescott said.

Financial Beginnings, founded in 2005, is a program striving to solve financial illiteracy in Oregon and Washington. Kate Benedict, executive director of the program, said it serves almost 30,000 students in all grade levels annually.

All four Democratic primary candidates say they want to put more money into public education. But Kennedy has made the issue the engine of her campaign.She has aligned herself specifically with the teachers unions and those largely opposed to education reform measures that emphasize standardized testing, the proliferation of charter schools, and the weakening of tenure protections. This position sets Kennedy apart from her primary opponents and at least the last four governors, three of them Democrats.She is calling for more school funding so that high school counselors don’t have caseloads of 400 kids each and the front office isn’t running out of paper. She’s calling for more support staff from paras to school psychologists. She’s calling, loudly, for higher pay so that teachers aren’t forced to choose between the schools they love, the students they have nurtured, the communities they call home and their own families’ well being. It doesn’t … [Read more...] about Education Is Key to Cary Kennedy’s Campaign. Is It Enough?
Kim Norvell Des Moines Register Published 10:10 p.m. UTC Jun 14, 2018 Consumers nationwide have had their bank account information stolen through credit card skimmers at alarming, record-breaking rates. Last year, 10 percent more debit cards were comprised at ATMs and merchant card readers than the year before, according to data from FICO. That's on top of a 70 percent increase in 2016. And it's happening here in central Iowa. West Des Moines police recently found a credit card skimmer installed at a QuikTrip.
