School Management Software Company Offers Solutions for Schools Losing Their Online Systems DECATUR, Ga. - June 1, 2020 - (Newswire.com) When Twine CEO Gary Falcon found out that a popular school management software, the Teaching and Learning Exchange, would be ceasing operations at the end of this school year due to budget cuts suffered by its provider, Step Up For Students, he knew his team needed to step in and provide assistance to the dozens of small private schools that were now left searching for a way to keep their schools up and running. “These are obviously unprecedented times for everyone, but especially in the education industry,” said Falcon. “It is unfortunate that Step Up For Students had to make the tough decision to shut down the TLE service, but we’re hoping we can help many of these schools continue operations with minimal disruption.” Special services are being provided for schools that need a quick replacement for TLE, including rapid onboarding, which gets schools up and running in Twine in a matter of days, and data migration, so schools don’t have to worry about their current student data being lost in the transition. A special web page is available to schools affected by the closure to answer questions and provide information about how they can transition and how their data will be seamlessly moved. A series of webinars are also planned, so school leaders can see how Twine works and have the chance to ask specific questions to Twine representatives.

PHILADELPHIA - June 1, 2020 - PRLog -- Suicide is a global epidemic. In the United States alone, more than 120 people die by suicide every day, and research suggests that the number may rise due to the Coronavirus and the long-lasting impact it may have on mental health. But there is hope. Public health officials agree that simply talking to a person at risk for suicide is a crucial preventative step, and connecting them to a support system, such as the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline, can literally save their life.In an effort to promote suicide awareness and prevention, award-winning filmmaker L. Marcus Williams has made his short film "Lifeline" available on the internet, free of charge (see link below). It tells the story of a woman who calls a suicide hotline in a moment of despair, and the operator who answers her call who must do everything he can to keep her on the line. It's an intense but intimate conversation between two strangers - one that will have a profound, life-affirming effect on both of their lives."My goal with this film is to get people talking about suicide in an honest and sympathetic way," says Williams. "I hope it will encourage people to call for help if they are in crisis, or if they know somebody who is, to reach out to them and offer them help."The film is inspired by Williams' own experience as a crisis hotline operator and a survivor of attempted suicide. It was his thesis film at Brooklyn College in New York, where he earned his Bachelor's Degree in both psychology and film production. The film has since gone on to win several awards, including a grant from the National Board of Review.As humbled as he is by the accolades, Williams says that the messages he has received from those who have seen the film have been the biggest reward. "They tell me how grateful they are that I shared my story, that it reminds them that they aren't alone and that help is just a phone call away."You can watch "Lifeline" now at http://watchlifeline.video/free.For more information on the film, visit http://aflyonthe4thwall.com.If you or anyone you know is thinking about suicide, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline at 1-800-273-8255. The call is free and confidential, and counselors are available 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, 365 days a year.ContactW.M. Lowenhauptemail@example.comClick to Contact
Ujamaa Place CEO Otis Zanders writes a letter to the community in response to the execution of George Floyd and in condolence to his family.SAINT PAUL, Minn. - June 1, 2020 - PRLog -- An organization well-known for its advocacy and support of African American men, aged 18-30, issued a statement in the form of a letter to its beloved community to inform the community about its experience in teaching its men to navigate systemic racism that was born out of the institution of slavery. Ujamaa Place confronts inequality, poverty, criminal justice reform, housing and trauma 24/7, as the mission of its founding fathers continues. It is with deep sadness that Ujamaa Place sends condolences to George Floyd's family. The pain of his death affects each and every one of our men personally as they see themselves in George Floyd. Mr. Zanders wrote:Dear Community,I am coming to you as the CEO of an organization that serves the most marginalized population in society, African American men, aged 18-30. Ujamaa Place serves on the front lines of the war on injustice by helping men navigate systemic poverty and racism, connection to the criminal justice system, homelessness and unemployment. Our hearts are broken from the generational trauma and human rights atrocities that our people have suffered for 400 years since the recording of the first slave ship's arrival in the U.S. We must allow the voices and strength of our ancestors to guide us through these unprecedented times and the challenging waters ahead.As the son of sharecroppers from the Mississippi Delta, I witnessed firsthand at a very young age, the clear connection between the legacy of slavery and American Capitalism. Today as a husband, father, and CEO of Ujamaa Place, I still see the ways in which the legacy of slavery lives on through systemic racism and plays out in the everyday lives of African Americans. We pray that the solidarity we are witnessing from around the world is a sign that we are collectively ready to pluck the ugly root of systemic racism for good. We regret that it took the murders of George Floyd, Philando Castile, Eric Garner, Ahmaud Arbery and countless others for people to finally be fed up. We stand on mighty shoulders that taught us freedom and justice is not a given, and that we must continue to teach each generation to fight for equality.The world witnessed George Floyd take his last breath as the knee of a white police officer lay on his neck restricting his airways, with members of the community pleading for his life. This was a reminder that we are not yet FREE from the bonds of slavery. The institution of slavery and its byproducts – racism, inequality, poverty and injustice are alive and well in our society today. This is why at Ujamaa Place, we focus on teaching our men to navigate systems of racism and ways to eliminate roadblocks that perpetuate inequality.I feel that NOW is the time to strategize ways to confront systemic racism in every form of injustice that exists in communities across Black America. We have to be the change. No one is coming to save us. Allies can support us by denouncing racism and inequality in all forms. History is being written that will teach future generations that freedom and equality is not a given. We must fight for it.I remain hopeful that good will come out of this great pain we are all feeling. Otis Zanders, CEOUjamaa PlaceWith 10 years of service to the community under its belt, the challenges Ujamaa Place faces are greater than ever as a result of the COVID-19 pandemic coupled with recent, unjustified killings of black men and women, creating significant unrest for the population it serves.To learn more about Ujamaa Place, go to: ujamaaplace.org.ContactMonique Linder, OMG Media Solutionsfirstname.lastname@example.orgPhotos: (Click photo to enlarge) Click to Contact
