MILLION STORIES LAUNCHES NEW SHOW THE FINANCE COUCH THAT ADDRESSES STUDENTS’ FINANCIAL CONCERNS

Sponsored by Experian, the Show Hopes to Provide Easy to Understand Financial Information

June 4, 2024, LOS ANGELES, CA – The Singleton Foundation for Financial Literacy & Entrepreneurship and its free to view digital channel Million Stories announces today the launch of The Finance Couch, an exciting new series that provides an opportunity to address financial concerns of college students and to explore their financial worries in a new way. Money topics can be complex, and college students are making financial decisions that will impact their lives.  It’s important for them to acquire this knowledge. The show provides an accessible entertaining way to provide this information.

The series is hosted by Wharton School of Business graduate and former Wall Street professional Ross Mac and Andini Makosinski, Inventor, Public Speaker, and host of Your World on Money, another show on Million Stories. In the series, important financial discussions are addressed with the college-aged guests joining the hosts on the finance couch in the middle of campus.  Exit interviews and content hosted by TikTok creator Peyton B. Walker round out each episode.  This show and many others can be found here:  https://www.millionstories.com

Global data and technology company Experian sponsors The Finance Couch and returns to the Singleton Foundation family after sponsoring HeartBroke and Your World on Money, shows that are both featured on the Million Stories platform. The exclusive sponsorship is part of Experian’s  United for Financial Health initiative, which aims to empower and protect consumers to improve their financial health through education and action.

DoSomething.org Kicks Off Voter Catalyst Network to Drive Gen Z’s Engagement in the 2024 Presidential Election

[New York, New York] – DoSomething,org, the leading hub for youth-centered activism, announces the launch of its Voter Catalyst Network (VCN) 2024 peer-to-peer voter registration campaign. Building on our track record of success in registering over 415,000 voters since 2018, DoSomething is launching this initiative to buttress our Art of Democracy program to ensure Gen Z’s voice is heard at the polls and beyond. The VCN trains and supports a network of young people under 25 to become Voter Captains in their communities.

Drawing from three decades of successfully driving young people toward peer-to-peer civic engagement, DoSomething will mentor new “Voter Captains.”  Voter Captains will be trained to host voter registration drives for their peers and community members to foster a culture of active citizenship. The captain who registers the most votes will earn an all-expense-paid trip to New York City to attend DoSomething’s Election Night Party. Voter Captains will also have access to exclusive swag, and will earn Volunteer Credits for their participation. 

A recent Harvard Youth Poll that surveyed 18-to 29-year-olds revealed that only 49% said they “definitely” will be voting, compared to 57% in 2019. VCN comes at a time when Gen Z’s understanding of their power in shaping election outcomes is critical. “There are over 41 million Gen Z voters who are newly eligible to vote in the upcoming 2024 Presidential Election. Over 8 million of them would be first-time voters. The Voter Catalyst Network is a powerful tool for young people to do something to ensure this generation claims our democracy and their role in shaping it. ” explains DeNora Getachew, CEO of DoSomething.org. 

The Voters Catalyst Network is part of DoSomething’s Art of Democracy program, which educates and equips the next generation of young voters with the identity, knowledge and skills to share their civic story and become a force for change in and out of the voting booth. This builds on the organization’s  2023 pilot of Art of Democracy through which DoSomething convened 850 young people in person in New York City. By scaling this work in key states in 2024, DoSomething will  convene over 5,000 young people through live events. The organization will also collect and amplify stories shared by over 10,000 young people online and offline to build a National Youth Agenda to ensure Gen Z’s voices are heard in our election.

Applications for Voter Captain positions are now open on a rolling basis and will close on September 1, 2024. To become a catalyst for change in your community apply to become a Voter Captain at DoSomething.org/vcn.

About DoSomething.org:

DoSomething fuels young people to change the world. As the leading hub for youth-centered activism, DoSomething has activated more than 8 million young people representing every U.S. area code and over 130 countries. DoSomething has registered over 375,000 new voters since 2018 and has awarded more than $2 million in scholarships to young people since 2010. When young people join DoSomething.org, they are joining a reflective and inclusive collective of members who are collaborating to develop and implement solutions to the most pressing issues facing society today.

NOW Available: Comcast Launches NOW Brand Prepaid Internet and Mobile Services Nationwide

New Pay-As-You-Go Options for Reliable Internet and Mobile with All-In Pricing, No Contracts or Credit Checks

PHILADELPHIA – May 9, 2024 – Americans now have new options for low-cost, reliable pay-as-you-go Internet and Mobile service: NOW Internet and NOW Mobile. Both products – backed by the powerful Xfinity network and the most reliable 5G – are available nationwide where Comcast offers service, and consumers can easily sign up, pause or cancel their subscription online, via the Xfinity app, or by visiting an Xfinity Store. With all-in monthly pricing, no contracts, or credit check required, NOW products deliver flexible connectivity to customers when they need it.

“NOW is a simple, reliable, and low-cost way for people to get Internet and Mobile service on their own terms,” said Bill Connors, President of Connectivity and Platforms, Comcast. “Our trials have shown that there is a need for a better prepaid product that provides a more consistent and reliable connection and we’re excited to bring fresh new options to this market.”

Reliable Internet

NOW Internet delivers a more consistent and reliable connection at a better price point than 5G home Internet from the cellular companies. The service is backed by the nation’s largest landline network that delivers better than 99 percent reliability, uses AI to detect and proactively fix disruptions before consumers experience them, and is built with rigorous security and privacy protocols.

Affordable Mobile

With upwards of 90 percent of data traffic from smartphones running over a WiFi connection, not cellular, WiFi is critical to the mobile experience. Unlike existing prepaid providers, NOW Mobile uses WiFi to the customer’s advantage by tapping into more than 23 million hotspots across the country, a groundbreaking new feature in the prepaid market that was built around low prices and limited capabilities for years. NOW Mobile is bringing a great experience along with some of the best prices in prepaid for Xfinity Internet and NOW Internet customers.

Incredible Flexibility

NOW offers incredible flexibility by giving customers the ability to subscribe or pause their Internet, mobile, and TV service online or through the Xfinity app. Customers can also buy NOW products in any Xfinity store across the country. NOW Internet and NOW Mobile join NOW TV and NOW WiFi Pass in a portfolio of connectivity and entertainment products.

The NOW Portfolio

• NOW Internet – Choose between 100 Mbps for $30 a month, or 200 Mbps for $45 a month. Unlimited data and an Xfinity gateway included.
• NOW Mobile – Bundle your NOW Mobile service with either Xfinity or NOW internet and you will be adding one of the most affordable unlimited plans on the market. As low as $55 a month for bundled NOW Internet and Mobile, and $25 a month for each additional Mobile line.
• NOW TV – $20 streaming offering that includes 40+ live channels, more than two dozen integrated FAST channels, and Peacock Premium. Easily accessible via the Xfinity Stream app.
• NOW WiFi Pass – Unlimited access to 23+ million fast and reliable Xfinity WiFi hotspots for less than a dollar a day at $20 for 30 days. No cancelation fees, no equipment, and unlimited data.

A New Option for Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP) Customers

As the government begins to wind down the Affordable Connectivity Program, with May expected to be the final month with a partial credit of $14, millions of people will be searching for another option for cost-effective connectivity. NOW Internet and Mobile will provide customers with reliable connectivity regardless of whether or not they are enrolled in ACP – supplementing Comcast’s longstanding low-income broadband adoption options Internet Essentials and Internet Essentials Plus, and Xfinity’s current suite of offerings.

More information about NOW Internet and NOW Mobile is available here.

About Comcast Corporation

Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company. From the connectivity and platforms we provide, to the content and experiences we create, our businesses reach hundreds of millions of customers, viewers, and guests worldwide.

GotIt! Education Offers MathGPT Free to All State & Community Colleges

PALO ALTO, Calif., April 30, — MathGPT, the first “AI Native LMS add-on” integrated with popular LMS systems, spanning both instructor and student facing Generative AI tools, will be offered in an Essentials Version – free of charge to all state and community colleges in the US.

MathGPT is the first agent based, accuracy-driven Gen AI teacher assistant and tutor for any Math classroom

“Too many schools can’t afford AI,” said Peter Relan, Chairman of, and investor in GotIt! Education. “With MathGPT now free, schools can try AI-based tutors — but without a hit on already tight budgets.  Our free MathGPT Essentials program also enables schools to switch from poorly functioning AI tutors that are actually slowing adoption of AI technology in education.”

MathGPT Essentials includes: 1. Course Management – the ability to create customized courses by uploading a set of educational content which will automatically get incorporated; 2. Assignment/Grading Management – automatic creation and grading of assignments; and 3. Grounded AI Tutor – an accurate, personalized, infinitely patient, AI tutor with student input evaluation/correction for each step.

Key Math subjects supported are Algebra, College Algebra, Precalculus, Calculus and Statistics. While MathGPT leverages OpenAI’s GPT-4 Turbo language model, several technological innovations were delivered to deliver high accuracy at such a low cost that Math tutoring will become free for every college student. Learn more at www.mathgpt.ai/any-content

Pilots in dozens of classrooms in the US show instructors in all key Math subjects use reliably accurate and guardrailed AI platform seamlessly, with high student engagement.

During the 2024 winter term, 30 college classrooms across the US, and even a few high school classrooms, adopted MathGPT – and in the time period before spring break, students had already completed over 10,000 AI tutoring sessions totaling over 150,000 minutes of AI driven tutoring help. In all these sessions, MathGPT did not provide students with an answer directly, it did step by step tutoring including asking for and evaluating student attempts at each step accurately, with no mistakes, and did not go off topic in the chatbot conversations.

“We started offering MathGPT Essentials, using proprietary techniques for assuring accuracy, to classrooms using free OpenStax Math textbooks in order to lower the total cost of a high quality college Math education. Now, due to our recent technological breakthroughs, we can offer MathGPT Essentials to all college level Math classrooms, not just those using OpenStax textbooks, with high accuracy achieved through dynamic guardrailing and grounding on any Math course content uploaded into MathGPT. This was always the promise of AI, but our live pilots have clearly shown us that our focus on accuracy and guardrailing has created the required level of trust with instructors and students. This has resulted in high engagement, but MathGPT pulls it off at such a low cost structure that we decided to offer the Essentials version for free,” added Relan.

Unlike other generative AI tools that rely on AI language models and their APIs to perform mathematical reasoning, input evaluation and calculations – sometimes incorrectly, MathGPT’s AI tutor, MG (pronounced “EmGee”), takes a fundamentally different approach and utilizes grounding techniques, data annotation techniques, knowledge graph blending with LLMs, and Agentic AI to deliver human level accuracy in Math education & tutoring workflows. Learn more at www.mathgpt.ai/any-content

“I’ve been at GotIt! since I finished my PhD in Machine Learning, and we’ve been collecting AI training data for several years by enabling millions of short, conversational micro-tutoring chat sessions between underprivileged STEM students and tutors. Finally with Gen AI we are able to turn all this data into MathGPT,” said Hung Tran, Founder of GotIt!. “Khan is great for achievers in K-12, and they use their own Khan Academy content, but MathGPT is for strugglers, and for the actual content being used by instructors in their classrooms in higher education, and for those who care about total accuracy. This is a very important difference, and I really hope we all succeed in improving Math education from K-College, using our respective strengths.”

FREE: MathGPT Essentials (Available Fall 2024)

• Course creation with uploaded PDFs of textbook content* and/or lecture notes.
• Assignment management with creation/grading of assignments unique to each student, plus instructor facing analytics.
• Personalized AI Tutoring on all course content including reading material, example problems.

$25/Student/Course: MathGPT Advanced  (Fall 2024)
Includes MathGPT Essentials Plus

• Personalized AI Tutoring for all assignment problems, without ever providing answers. Step by step student input evaluation, not just step by step explanations.
• Built in Remedial Algebra course content and tutoring for strugglers.

Learn more at www.mathgpt.ai/any-content

“Our mission is to enable colleges to attract more students, with courses marked as ‘MathGPT powered’, bringing colleges more students, and giving instructors more help with an AI TA for each course and students more chance of success in their careers.  Math is a fundamental gateway subject for pre-med, nursing, actuarial sciences, business, psychology, sociology and other majors, not just engineering”, said Matt Gabler, GM of MathGPT.ai.

Colleges and classrooms for Fall 2024 will be onboarded first-come-first served to verify content compatibility with MathGPT. Interested instructors, college administrators, department heads can contact GotIt! at www.mathgpt.ai/any-content and submit their course type, content source/textbook number of classrooms, and number of students for MathGPT Essentials or Advanced versions.

*GotIt! Education is not the provider of content for MathGPT.ai. Course content, including textbooks, should only be offered through MathGPT by the teaching institution based on their agreements with content publishers/owners, and/or with their ability to use AI for transformational teaching purposes.
