The Economist Group and examPAL collaborate to enhance GMAT Tutor and GRE Tutor test prep products

The Group’s educational products offer new features aimed to equip students with a custom approach to learning

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM- October 15th, 2020 – Today The Economist Group announced new improved features to its GMAT and GRE test-prep products to help students on their journey to academic success.

The new and improved GMAT and GRE test prep products, reimagined in collaboration with examPAL, a pioneering online education provider, will provide students with advanced ways to prepare for admission tests through the online tutor software, tutoring service, and associated technical and customer support. The “PAL” methodology – Precise, Alternative, Logical – teaches students how to solve any question in one of three ways, and the training system, the PALgorithm, uses “PAL” to improve students’ cognitive flexibility. This innovative approach allows the system to predict the best way for the user to solve each question as opposed to “one-size-fits-all” solutions provided by a book or a tutor.

Siriliya Nawalkar, Director Product Portfolio at The Economist Group said: “The current climate accelerated the shift to online tests and online preparation, which encouraged us to enhance even further the capabilities of our educational products to meet the ever-changing demands of our students. This is why, we are pleased to be partnering with examPAL to build upon the success of our educational products and take the combined offer to the next level in the test prep market.”

Over the last 20 years, The Economist Group’s educational products, including The Economist GMAT Tutor and The Economist GRE Tutor have played a key role in supporting students across the globe. The collaboration with examPAL reaffirms the Group renewed focus in the education sector and unique position as one of the market leaders for GMAT and GRE test prep.

“We are very excited to be working with a partner with the brand recognition and global reach of The Economist, who have been helping students prepare for their masters and PhD degrees for many years,” says Oren Jackman, CEO and co-founder of examPAL. “We wanted to work with a brand who had a true affinity for both business and academia and The Economist, with its trusted voice and opinion, is the perfect fit. We look forward to combining examPAL’s and The Economist’s knowledge and expertise to provide market-leading, interactive, entertaining—and personalised—experiences that you would expect from online education companies in 2020.”

The Economist Group is built on high-quality, independent analysis which runs through all of its businesses. Based in London and serving a global readership and client base, the group publishes print and digital products, produces global events, and offers a range of subscription and other services for clients and readers.

MyCollegeDoctor.com is Changing the Telemedicine Industry for Students

Colleges and universities looking for telemedicine/telehealth services for students and employees are applauding the launch of mycollegedoctor.com.

The service launched an organized campaign this week to reach 500 campuses by the end of the year, according to Larry Peterson, co-founder.

This new telehealth service is nationwide and offers 24/7 access to board certified physicians for person-to-person consultation within 15 minutes of being requested.

In addition, almost any medication needed from the consultation can be obtained for no additional cost at over 65,000 pharmacies nationwide when prescribed by its physicians. Members are given a coupon over their smartphone to present to their pharmacy for prescription pickup.

As part of membership, mycollegedoctor.com also offers mental health services 24/7 and lifestyle coaching for improving the mind, body, and soul.

The business was started after co-founder Larry Sheffield’s son was diagnosed with Meningitis during his freshman year of college, and he struggled to find real-time resources to consult with a physician during the weekend. “As most colleges have limited hours and access to student health, the necessary resources were not available when we needed it most,” Sheffield said. “With mycollegedoctor.com you have access to a doctor’s opinion any time you need it.”

“We tailored a college-driven program with two clicks on a smart phone to access 75% of what college students might need during their enrollment,” says Sheffield.

“Telehealth, mental health, anxiety, addiction, relationship issues, dermatology . . . You name it, we cover it,” states Sheffield.

UNLV, Washington University, and Neumann University have all deployed Telehealth services as part of their student health coverage during 2020. In addition, the COVID-19 pandemic has exposed healthcare inequities while speeding up a future in which better care can be more accessible. College students may not have access to transportation or want to go to a student health center during these times, but all students have a smartphone. With My College Doctor, that’s all they need to connect with a healthcare professional.

The service is a subsidiary of Advanced Health Strategies of Phoenix, Arizona.
For more information contact: info@mycollegedoctor.com or call Tara in Administrative Support at 602-568-8550.

More information can be found at www.mycollegedoctor.com.

Jazz Assistant (www.jazzassistant.com) – Create Inspiring Music You can Use and Play.

What is Jazz Assistant?
Jazz Assistant is a computer software program which generates computer music . It uses specific design criteria (an algorythm) to create a printout (a musical composition). The printout can be played by humans for any musical instrument. It is designed for jazz and the blues

Benefits of Jazz Assistant
No writers block: The algorithm will produce music which will stimulate you so you can create your own jazz and blues compositions. The music created will be printed so you can use it directly or use it to inspire new jazz and blues compositions. Each selection is non-redundant, meaning that with just a small selection of the music, you will have a variety of ways you can use the musical creations. Best of all, you can use it right away. The music comes in printed score-sheets that you can study and can also play.
Share the credit, not all the royalty: Once you download the composition, it’s yours to do with as you like. My fees come through the subscription service or by your initial payment of each page. There is no requirement that share all royalties for creations you create. All that we ask is that you credit DOUGLAS CORNISH & ANDREI BELUTA as a joint composer in writing.

Listen to a sample
Each day, you can listen to a different free sample to get a free feel for what www.jazzassistant.com can do for you. The compositions create a wonderful random generation or notes and chord segments. The music is ablaze with bold brash blues progressions and jazz syncopation of musicality. It’s “cool” to listen to.

Why Jazz Assistant is unique

• Capability: The algorithm has the capabilities of creating more than 1 octodocillion pages, all original and different. By changing the decision criteria, according to a randomness factor, different capabilities can be created.

• Uniqueness: The uniqueness of the algorithm is the numerological design of the relative chords and scales and the ways the musical scales are combined. The algorithm first combines the music in an Ionian scale, then a Mixolydian scale and then resolves to a Dorian scale but diminished, or augmented, major and/or minor. The computer program uses a 2,5,1 format – a standard musical progression of chords and scales in the key of C,D,G, then back to C adjusted for all the keys in different modalities. The program is written in Java.

Background of the Creators
Douglas “Corny Cornball” Cornish has been composing and playing blues and jazz for many years. He has been working in the econometric industry a stock broker for seven years. Douglas Cornish and Andrei Beleuta, a software engineer, created the program which generates the music on April 9, 2020 since 2013.

He also started www.richno.com.So now youhaveheard of www.richno.com and www.jazzzoid.com 3 z’s…Every time you ask “what time is it?” Think of richno.com. Bring your friends in and talk to them without them knowing what y ou ask or which answers you hear.. Mellow out and listen to the view from the top of new world jazz. Every time you wantthe weather think of Jazzzoid.com.
