    A new Charter gave the company permission to setup the Wine Standards Board, in order to enforce wine laws. UK Vintners must abide by the wine laws, though now the Food Standards Agency enforces these. In any case, Vintners in the UK have an agency overseeing them that in effect makes them adhere to certain standards. Vintners in the UK therefore are a well regulated industry, ensuring quality and customer satisfaction.

    In one of their recipe videos, YouTube star, lifestyle guru, and motivational speaker Markus Rothkranz’s partner Cara Brotman shows viewers how to make a healthy substitute for naan bread. The recipe is raw, vegan, and wheat-free.

    She uses finely minced garlic, parsley, and onion. She also uses pepper, sea salt, thyme, and olive oil. The main ingredient for the bread is coconut meat. Cara says you can either buy a whole young Thai coconut and cut out the meat yourself, or buy the meat from the store. First she puts the coconut meat, a bit of onion, and some water into the blender. She then blends those three ingredients until they are just smooth.

    Next Cara lightly oils a dehydrator sheet. She then spreads the naan batter onto the sheet in a medium thick layer. Then she tops the bread with olive oil, salt, pepper, garlic, onion, thyme, and parsley. Cara puts the bread into the dehydrator for around two hours, then takes it out, flips it over, and puts it back into the dehydrator for another two and a half to three hours.

    She emphasizes all the health benefits of this recipe. Unlike other breads, it does not contain wheat or gluten, nor does it have any added sugar. The naan is also dairy-free and vegan. It uses only raw ingredients. Finally, it is good for you because it is not heated to a high temperature that would “kill” the food. The video ends with Cara talking about her and Markus’ cookbook that features the naan recipe.

    A GSM phone has the capability of receiving a sim card to be used with any carrier as long as the sim card is for that particular carrier. There are many carriers in the USA that use GSM phones, such as T-Mobile, AT&T, and FreedomPop now uses these phones as well. Before the GSM phones were used on the FreedomPop network, only CDMA phones that came from Sprint were able to be used with FreedomPop, but thankfully, the company saw that this was not good enough. Although Sprint has a lot of customers, especially some that may want to switch over to FreedomPop, there are still many GSM customers as well.

    Those who use a GSM phone can choose to make a purchase to buy a phone from FreedomPop in a retail store or on the FreedomPop website, or they can always have their phone unlocked to work with FreedomPop. Once a phone is usable on the FreedomPop network, it’s necessary to purchase the sim card of that FreedomPop offers. The 3-in-1 sim card from FreedomPop is great in the fact that it allows for usage of the sim card in any sim slot size and only needs to be taken apart for the exact size sim slot that is being used.

    Since a lot of different phones can be used on the FreedomPop network, this means that there may be different sized sim cards that are needed for a particular phone, so having the 3-in-1 sim card from FreedomPop makes it a lot easier, especially if a person isn’t too sure about what size sim card they’ll require for their particular phone. Setting up a phone is easy as well and only requires getting the sim card and activating it. It’s also important to choose a phone plan, and there are several plans available on the FreedomPop network.

    Those who choose the free plan will be able to enjoy 200 minutes of talk time along with 500 text messages and 200 MB of data. Anyone who wants to extend their data up to 700 MB can do so if they add 10 FreedomPop friends to their account. Those choosing the unlimited plan will not have to worry about going over their minutes or text messages, but the user will have to choose their data limits, and they can add additional data whenever they want to.

    Building a positive community within the classroom can be a struggle, but with the help of Class Dojo, this task just got easier. Let’s find out how adding this communication platform works to build a positive enviornment for teachers and students alike.


    Launched in the summer of 2011, Class Dojo works to build not only positive classroom environments but to improve communications between teachers, students and parents. This platform helps students find a voice by allowing them to showcase their skills, by adding photos and videos to their personal portfolios. These shared moments give parents a peak into their child’s day.


    So, what is Class Dojo? It’s a communication that platform that encourages students to make better choices by rewarding them when they demonstrate a positive trait. Students who demonstrate these behaviors receive points, and in the event a student demonstrates negative behaviors, points are taken away. Students have access to these points and are given positive feedback for their choices; which helps keep them stay accountable for their actions.


     It opens up lines of communication between parents and teachers because the Class Dojo’s software generates behavior reports that’s shared with parents. Parents can access their child’s portfolio at any time and track their progress. They can also connect with the teacher through the Class Dojo app without having to reveal their contact information.


    Teachers can instantly alert parents when a student’s behavior becomes less than acceptable. However, negative behaviors aren’t the only reason for a message from the teacher. Teachers share photos, videos and announcements for class moments on the Dojo app. This helps parents stay informed with the day to day operations of the class as well as any upcoming event. This app has replaced the need for paper notes being sent home, and is a more effective way to communicate.


    This parent-teacher involvement helps create a positive culture in the classroom and in the school. Other school officials can access Class Dojo and monitor the growth of the students. This is a great resource for principals who are greatly involved with classroom development. It allows them to see which classes are demonstrating positive behaviors. School leaders can use this information to reward classes for demonstrating a positive classroom community.


    This communication platform has changed classroom communication for the better. Parents are more involved in their child’s development and no longer have to wait for the once a semester parent-teacher conference. They are able to communicate directly with their child’s teacher, without lost notes and missed calls. This communication platform is the way of the future.
