Ignited: Sparking Innovation in STEM Education, Preparing the Next Generation of Innovators
Nonprofit Offers Teachers Fellowships at Top Companies and Universities to Equip Students for Jobs of Tomorrow
As technology accelerates the pace of innovation, the way our education system prepares students for success must also fundamentally change. Experts estimate that 85 percent of jobs that will exist in 2030 have not yet been invented, which means how children learn is paramount to what they learn. Today’s students need skills like problem-solving, critical thinking, communication, and collaboration to tackle the unknown challenges and opportunities of tomorrow. Yet critics say our schools are currently preparing students for jobs that no longer exist.
That’s why Ignited (www.IgnitEducation.org) is connecting teachers with top companies and universities to transform STEM learning.
Through its Summer Fellowship Program, the...

NY Times bestselling author Pamela Yellen and Mark Willis show you how to grow and protect your financial future with safe, guaranteed wealth-building strategies
The average 65-year-old will outlive their savings by almost a decade, according to the World Economic Forum.

Many Americans have no clue when or even if they’ll ever be able to retire.
Pamela Yellen, a New York Times bestselling author and financial investigator, knows these concerns. Like most Americans, she followed the conventional wisdom of investing in stocks and mutual funds, only to see her savings vanish. So she took matters into her own hands.

Trauma's Effect on
Body, Brain, and Beliefs
With Dr. Carolyn Ross, MD, MPH

A Cure for Crohn's Disease
Colorectal Surgeon on Emerging Treatment
More than 1.5 million Americans, mostly adolescents, suffer from Crohn's disease. Traditional medical advice says there is no single treatment that works for everyone and so most doctors focus on reducing inflammation.
The symptoms are so challenging that some who are suffering commit suicide. After one of his patients ended his life, Dr. David Armstrong set out to make a difference.
What If There Is a Cure?
"My patients suffer so much from Crohn's and a new antibiotic combination is so promising, that I was inspired to write a book on the topic," says Dr. David Armstrong, an Atlanta-based authority on colorectal surgery.

Create Change-Ready Organizations
Readiness Mindset Created by Dr. Dawn-Marie Turner
Dawn-Marie Turner, Ph.D. turns your liability called "change" into an asset called your organization's Readiness Mindset™. Most business leaders hire consultants to manage resistance, creating and investing in programs to control their:
1. Disengaged staff
2. Cynical employees
3. Frustrated leaders
4. Under-performing departments, and
5. Culture suffering from change-fatigue.
However, Dr. Turner, author of “Launch, Lead, Live: The Executive's Guide to Preventing Resistance & Succeeding With Organizational Change," teaches leaders that you don’t have to manage resistance; instead, you can build a change-ready organization with change-ready employees.
For seven decades, strategies and tactics to manage resistance have been synonymous with the practice of change management. Yet, approaching change with a Resistant Mindset makes change more difficult, limits options, and triggers our brain’s survival mode. This perpetuates a toxic...

Adult ADHD, America and Trump
In his new book, John Kruse, M.D., Ph.D., sheds light on how Adult Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder affects millions of Americans, our society – and our president.
Americans facing the myriad distractions of modern life might be tempted to make light of Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder as an explanation for our frantic, fragmented focus – as a nation and as individuals. But adult ADHD is a serious condition that, left untreated, can derail careers, destroy relationships, damage self-esteem, and even kill people.
Too often, we don’t recognize it and thus can’t treat it effectively. Dr. John Kruse has set out to change that with his provocative new book, “Recognizing Adult ADHD: What Donald Trump Can Teach Us About Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder.”

Dr. Michiyo Ambrosius’ groundbreaking Neuro Bi-lateral Processing (NBP) integrates the left and right sides of the brain to allow people to heal from long-term effects of trauma

Advancing Marijuana Legalization for 5 Decades
The Leading Authority on Marijuana, Ed Rosenthal Authors New Book, 'Cannabis Grower’s Handbook'

Unleashing Humanity's Potential
After helping to end Nepal's civil war, Potentialism is poised to empower people, nations and organizations worldwide
In 2009, an economic development professor in Nepal contacted Ross Gray and Theresa Ruby, founders of GlobalHouse, for permission to found a chapter of their organization in Nepal and help introduce a new socioeconomic model, called Potentialism. The goal: to lay the groundwork for peace after a civil war that killed more than 15,000 people over a decade.
Despite a five-year ceasefire, Maoist rebels maintained approximately 19,000 heavily armed soldiers in 27 camps around the mountainous nation. Diplomats from the US, Europe, China, India and the United Nations had tried but failed to end the dispute. So some of the Nepalese leaders invited Gray and Ruby, American authors, consultants and philanthropists, to try to...

Multi-Million Dollar Silicon Valley Serial Entrepreneur Helps Women Over 40 Skyrocket Careers
"It is what it is" is said by too many …
"So, now what?" is said by too few.
(Hilary DeCesare’s mom)
According to Bloomberg, women make up less than 39.5% of Silicon Valley's leadership in corporations such as Meta (Facebook), Twitter, and Alphabet (Google). Women lean in, speak up, ask for things, sit at the conference table — and yet women aren't equally represented in leadership, and shockingly only 4% of the C-suite includes women of color. Further, the pandemic, war, school shootings, and more place stress on women. Can stress be flipped? Is it possible to turn transitions into transformations?
How can women turn transition into transformation?

Providing Critical Support for the Advancement of Fundamental Research in Math and Science
The Institut des Hautes Études Scientifiques (IHES) is where great minds meet

Tools for Improving How Individuals Learn, Communicate, and Connect
Achieve greater success in business and at home by optimizing learning and communication
The way that each individual collects, processes, learns, and communicates information is exclusive to that person. It is their unique Inner Genius: the filter through which they connect with the world.
In professional and personal settings, people often employ learning and communication techniques that don’t work for them or their colleagues. Though they may speak clearly and concisely, they often find they aren’t able to get their point across. When communication and learning breaks down, professional teams often suffer. In business, this can lead to frustration, lack of productivity, and low employee retention. In personal relationships, it may cause arguments and, in some cases, lead to divorce.
Built on Inner Genius founder Catherine...

The Woman Behind the Sports Bra
Lisa Z. Lindahl invented the sports bra out of personal necessity.
She had no idea it would become an iconic symbol of gender equality.
In 1972, the United States passed Title IX – a new law prohibiting discrimination in any federally funded education program on the basis of sex. By 1975, what was known as the “women’s liberation movement” had swept the country. Women were coming into their own, working hard to carve out new roles for themselves at home and in sports, culture, politics, and business.
The door opening for women to enjoy the same “playing fields” in life as men was one thing, but the physical reality of being on literal playing fields was still a challenge for many women – including Lisa Lindahl. Lisa was...

Thought Leadership for Entrepreneurs
As president and CEO of WFN1 and host of CEO Money, Michael Yorba explores how business leaders are changing the world

Giving Working Dogs the Peaceful Retirement They Deserve
Mission K9 Rescue creates happy endings for retired military working dogs, contract working dogs, and police K9s who have served humankind.

NovaVision: Restoring Vision for Life
Company provides clinically supported therapies for the rehabilitation of visual impairments caused by stroke or other brain injury
There are approximately 8 million stroke survivors in the U.S., with 795,000 strokes a year, and approximately 1.5 million suffering some sort of traumatic brain injury (TBI) annually. Staggeringly, up to approximately 30% of these suffer a resultant visual impairment, up to 20% permanently.

America's Financial Investigator
NY Times bestselling author Pamela Yellen shows how to grow and protect your financial future with safe, guaranteed wealth-building strategies
The average 65-year-old will outlive their savings by almost a decade, according to the World Economic Forum.

Igniting the Powur of the Crowd
Jonathan Budd and Powur are building an army of “Solar-preneurs” to crowdsource rooftop solar, halt carbon-based climate change and accelerate the shift to a new global energy paradigm
The one thing humans need to survive, besides oxygen, water, food and shelter, is energy. A $6 trillion/year industry, energy is poised to grow by 80 percent through 2040 as China and India adopt modern living standards. Yet our energy infrastructure is built on an outdated centralized grid and dirty fossil fuels, pushing us ever closer to an “irreversible tipping point” of climate change with unknown consequences.

Here's Your Field Guide
Ordained Spiritual Counselor and Author Signe Myers Hovem Details Self-Care Exercises to Feel Safe, Loved, and a Connection to Nature
You have five senses to perceive the world. The ability to touch, taste, smell, see and hear empowers you to explore and embrace your environment.

Lessons in Skincare Transformation
for Boys & Men
Duo solves their skincare issues and co-creates multi-functional skincare products exclusively for men of all skin types, ethnicities
Entrepreneur Tammie Skyes and Esthetician/Registered Nurse Simone Randle co-founded a men's skincare company, Dion Michaels, after they met in college and both suffered from various skincare issues that affected their confidence. Once their skin transformed, they transformed. To address an underserved market — skincare for boys and men — they made a pact to deliver this transformation and their two-step, paraben-free skin balm and cleanser to market. Their new grooming cleanser is a #oneforall solution (meaning it's a cleanser, moisturizer, shaver, and beard conditioner all in one). The second step skin balm doubles as an additional moisturizer and aftershave.
The success has led the duo to teach boys and...
The Gorge: Steepness Redefined
New Zip Line Drops Thrill-Seekers 1,100 Vertical Feet into Green River Gorge
Zip lines are exploding in popularity across America, with the number of these high-flying thrill rides soaring from 10 in 2001 to more than 200 today. Unique among zip lines is a new 1¼-mile extreme course called The Gorge located on 125 wild acres just off Interstate 26 near Saluda, N.C.
Billed as the steepest, fastest zip line canopy tour in the US, The Gorge launches visitors on a heart-racing descent into the gorge of the world famous Green River. The 11 sections culminate in a section co-owner Tim Bell calls "The Star Wars Zip," due to its similarity to the scene of racing through giant trees featured in The Return of the Jedi.

Founded by husband-and-wife power couple John David Snyder and Niki Shadrow Snyder, along with Emmy Award-winning producer Gary Reeves, The Givefluencer Network is a movement designed to transform lives — of givers and receivers — through giving.

Helping America’s high-achieving students fulfill their dreams
High-achieving high school students often do not get the support they should in school. Education reforms such as No Child Left Behind “created strong incentives for schools to focus all their energy on helping low-performing students get over a modest ‘proficiency’ bar,” but “ignored the educational needs of high achievers,” according to the report High Stakes for High Achievers.
The National Leadership Academies is working to change that by inspiring and equipping top students for the future. Through its Congress of Future Medical Leaders and Congress of Future Science & Technology Leaders, annual gatherings that expose students to top leaders in their fields, young people from across America are getting the skills, motivation, guidance and mentorship they need to achieve their goals.
“There is a misconception that...

She got violently ill after a family trip to Mexico, resulting in bouts of sickness and high fevers that lasted many months. Afterwards, her intuitive abilities magnified, but upon sharing this with peers, she was ridiculed.
After many years of closing that part of herself off, going through the motions, and generally living life the way society expected her to, Veronica found herself working a marketing job in commercial aviation. Unfulfilled, she decided to create...

In the days of fur trappers and pioneers, free-flowing rivers were the lifeblood of commerce, transportation and fisheries across America.
