Knowledgehook to boost maths attainment across Australia

gbafNews28

Knowledge aims to accelerate recent improvements in math attainment levels, across all age groups, in Australia. The Learner First to distribute Knowledgehook technology across Australia.

 

CANBERRA, AUSTRALIA – News Direct – 16
February 2021 – Knowledgehook, the
world’s most comprehensive mathematics learning platform, has launched in
Australia as the nation’s teachers turn a corner in addressing low maths
attainment levels for young people. It is now available to schools across the
country for children in Year 3 to Year 10 classes, through The Learner First, a
consultancy working with schools across Australia.

 

The latest TIMSS (Trends in
International Mathematics and Science Study) found that Australia’s achievement
in mathematics has improved since 2015. However, Year 4 mathematics achievement
has not changed since 2007. One of the biggest challenges facing educators is
to find better ways to meet the learning needs of the many students who fall
behind in schools, failing to meet year-level expectations (often year after
year) and, as a consequence, become increasingly disengaged.

 

Knowledgehook’s proprietary technology
harnesses the power of data to track where students are on their math journey.
Their programmes connect a child’s at-home learning with in-school education,
providing real-time insights to teachers on learning gaps. This empowers
teachers to develop an understanding of the maths concepts related to their
students’ challenges, enabling them to adjust instruction and monitor student
progress.

Knowledgehook: The Instructional Guidance System for
teachers

 

As Knowledgehook launches across
Australia, former Australian Mathematics
Curriculum leader, Margaret Bigelow
, commented: “Australia’s results
in international testing are improving. The impact of a national approach to
teaching and learning Mathematics has impacted on this improved outcome.
Teachers need to be supported to maintain this trajectory of improvement by
having the ideas and tools to enhance the engagement of their students to
develop critical and creative thinking and further mathematical skills. This will
enable students to adjust to the ever-changing demands and challenges of life
in the future.”

 

“Knowledgehook was inspired by my own
struggle with maths as a child,” explained CoFounder and CEO of Knowledgehook, Travis Ratnam. “Having the
right, personalised guidance makes all the difference and every student
deserves to have a teacher who has access to the best pedagogical tools, and
parents who have insights into their learning. Our platform is not a game, it
pulls together a 360 view on a child’s learning journey enabling people around
them to improve the child’s math experience and outcomes.

Knowledgehook founders: (L to R) Travis Ratnam and Qamar
Qureshi

 

In launching Knowledgehook across
Australia, Joanne McEachen, Founder and
CEO of The Learner First
commented: “I love the fact maths support is
available 24/7 so when a learner struggles with a math’s concept, the teacher
can access professional learning and development to help support both the
learner and the teacher on the spot. Moreover, it helps teachers retrace their
approach and identifies what may have been missed allowing them to recover and
embed essential skills and concepts. Quite simply, it is what we have been
missing for years and it will certainly complement the current trajectory of
further improving math’s performance and disposition in Australian students.”

 

Knowledgehook’s AI-enabled platform has
grown to support schools across the US, Mexico, and the UK. It is designed to
scale across multiple countries and languages developing teacher capacity while
engaging students and providing actionable insights for parents. Over the
years, Knowledgehook’s research-based solution has garnered industryleading
partnerships and investments from the most recognised global education bodies,
notably from the University College of London (UCL), the global leader in
education research.

 

Knowledgehook actively collaborates with
governments around the world while also working directly with schools and their
suppliers, to offer curriculum-aligned solutions. The company currently
empowers teachers in more than 100,000 schools. In 2021, it is anticipated the
solution will reach 50,000,000 students globally. “We have received growing
interest for our technology and expertise to be applied to other subjects and
we look forward to expanding our solution to empower more educators and support
the learning of students to become the problem-solvers of tomorrow,” Qamar Qureshi, President and Chief Business
Officer
added.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investment in Voyager Therapeutics, Inc. of Class Action Lawsuit and Upcoming Deadline – VYGR

gbafNews28

NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against Voyager Therapeutics, Inc. (“Voyager” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: VYGR) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in United States District Court for the Eastern District of New York, and docketed under 21-cv-00381, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Voyager securities between June 1, 2017 and November 9, 2020, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), seeking to recover damages caused by Defendants' violations of the federal securities laws and to pursue remedies under Sections 10(b) and 20(a) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”) and Rule 10b-5 promulgated thereunder, against the Company and certain of its top officials.

If you are a shareholder who purchased Voyager securities during the Class Period, you have until March 23, 2021 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at [email protected] or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 7980.

Voyager, a clinical-stage gene therapy company, focuses on the development of treatments for patients suffering from severe neurological diseases. Included in the Company's preclinical programs is VY-HTT01 for Huntington's Disease. Voyager represent that VY-HTT01 is intended to work by knocking down HTT expression in neurons and astrocytes in the striatum and cortex (discrete regions in the brain that can be targeted with adeno-associated virus (“AAV”) gene therapy delivered directly into the brain), thereby reducing the level of toxicity associated with mutated protein in these brain regions, and slowing the progression of cognitive and motor symptoms.

On June 1, 2017, Voyager issued a press release announcing that it had selected VY-HTT01 as a lead clinical candidate for the treatment of Huntington's disease. The press release also indicated that, “[p]reclinical pharmacology and toxicology studies [were] underway with VY-HTT01 to support filing of an investigational new drug (IND) application in 2018.”

In September 2020, Voyager submitted an investigational new drug (“IND”) application for VY-HTT01 for the treatment of Huntington's disease to the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (“FDA”).

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose to investors that: (i) the Company's VY-HTT01 IND submission to the FDA lacked key information regarding certain chemistry, manufacturing and controls (“CMC”) matters, including, inter alia, drug-device compatibility and drug substance and product characterization; (ii) the Company's IND submission for VY-HTT01 was therefore deficient; (iii) the Company had thus materially overstated the likelihood of FDA approval for VY-HTT01 based on the IND submission; and (iv) as a result, the Company's public statements were materially false and misleading at all relevant times.

On October 12, 2020, Voyager issued a press release disclosing that it “has received feedback from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) on the Investigational New Drug (IND) submission for VY-HTT01 for the treatment of Huntington's disease.” Specifically, Voyager advised investors that it “has been notified that the IND was placed on clinical hold pending the resolution of certain chemistry, manufacturing and controls (CMC) matters.”

Then, on November 9, 2020, Voyager issued a press release announcing the Company's third quarter 2020 financial results and corporate updates. In the press release, the Company disclosed that, with respect to its IND application for VY-HTT01, “Voyager recently received written feedback from the FDA requesting additional information on specific CMC topics, including drug-device compatibility and drug substance and product characterization.”

On this news, Voyager's stock price fell $2.60 per share, or 23.21%, to close at $8.60 per share on November 10, 2020.

SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Pomerantz Law Firm Reminds Shareholders with Losses on their Investment in SolarWinds Corporation of Class Action Lawsuit and Up Coming Deadline – SWI

gbafNews28

NEW YORK, Feb. 18, 2021 /PRNewswire/ — Pomerantz LLP announces that a class action lawsuit has been filed against SolarWinds Corporation (“SolarWinds” or the “Company”) (NYSE: SWI) and certain of its officers. The class action, filed in the United States District Court for the Western District of Texas, and docketed under 21-cv-00047, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise, acquired publicly traded SolarWinds securities from February 24, 2020 through December 15, 2020, inclusive (the “Class Period”). Plaintiff seeks to recover compensable damages caused by Defendants' violations of the federal securities laws under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

If you are a shareholder who purchased SolarWinds securities during the Class Period, you have until March 5, 2021 to ask the Court to appoint you as Lead Plaintiff for the class. A copy of the Complaint can be obtained at www.pomerantzlaw.com. To discuss this action, contact Robert S. Willoughby at [email protected] or 888.476.6529 (or 888.4-POMLAW), toll-free, Ext. 7980.

SolarWinds purports to provide information technology (IT) infrastructure management software products in the United States and internationally. The Company offers products to monitor and manage network, system, desktop, application, storage, and database and website infrastructures, whether on-premise, in the public or private cloud, or in a hybrid IT infrastructure.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operational, and compliance policies. Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose to investors that: (1) since mid-2020, SolarWinds Orion monitoring products had a vulnerability that allowed hackers to compromise the server upon which the products ran; (2) SolarWinds' update server had an easily accessible password of 'solarwinds123'; (3) consequently, SolarWinds' customers, including, among others, the Federal Government, Microsoft, Cisco, and Nvidia, would be vulnerable to hacks; (4) as a result, the Company would suffer significant reputational harm; and (5) as a result, Defendants' statements about SolarWinds's business, operations, and prospects were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all relevant times.

On December 13, 2020, Reuters reported that hackers alleged to be working for the Russian government had monitored email traffic at the U.S. Treasury and Commerce departments and that the alleged hackers are believed to have gained access to the agencies' email traffic by deceptively interfering with updates released by SolarWinds, which services various government vendors in the executive branch, the military, and the intelligence services.

On December 14, 2020, SolarWinds filed a Form 8-K with the SEC, disclosing that it had been the subject of hack on its Orion monitoring products. 

On this news, the Company's shares fell $3.93 per share, or 17%, to close at $19.62 per share on December 14, 2020, damaging investors.

On December 15, 2020, Reuters published an article stating that, last year, security researcher Vinoth Kumar “alerted the company that anyone could access SolarWinds' update server by using the password 'solarwinds123.'” The article also disclosed that, according to Kyle Hanslovan, the cofounder of Maryland-based cybersecurity company Huntress, “days after SolarWinds realized their software had been compromised, the malicious updates were still available for download.”

On this news, the Company's shares fell $1.56 per share or 8% to close at $18.06 per share on December 15, 2020, damaging investors.

(“Bit Digital” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ: BTBT) and certain of its officers.  The class action, filed in the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, and docketed under 21-cv-00721, is on behalf of a class consisting of all persons and entities other than Defendants that purchased or otherwise acquired Bit Digital securities between December 21, 2020 and January 8, 2021, inclusive (the “Class Period”).  Plaintiff pursues claims against the Defendants under the Securities Exchange Act of 1934 (the “Exchange Act”).

Bit Digital is a holding company that purports to engage in the bitcoin mining business through its wholly-owned subsidiaries in the U.S. and Hong Kong.

The Complaint alleges that throughout the Class Period, Defendants made materially false and misleading statements, and failed to disclose material adverse facts about the Company's business, operations, and compliance policies.  Specifically, Defendants made false and/or misleading statements and failed to disclose to investors that: (i) Bit Digital overstated the extent of its bitcoin mining operation; and (ii) as a result of the foregoing, Defendants' positive statements about the Company's business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.

On January 11, 2021, J Capital Research issued a research report alleging, among other things, that Bit Digital operates “a fake crypto currency business” “designed to steal funds from investors.”  Though the Company claims “it was operating 22,869 bitcoin miners in China,” J Capital alleged that “is simply not possible” and stated that “[w]e verified with local governments supposedly hosting the BTBT mining operation that there are no bitcoin miners there.”

On this news, Bit Digital's ordinary share price fell $6.27 per share, or 25%, to close at $18.76 per share on January 11, 2021, on unusually heavy trading volume.
