New University Pilot Study Attracts More Students and Enrolls them Faster Using Concourse Technology

A new pilot allowing universities from around the world to make offers to students via a Global Clearing event conducted using Concourse technology.

BROOKLYN, NY, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 / — In less than a week, universities from around the world were able to find, research, chat with, and make offers to students during the first Global Clearing event conducted 100% online using proprietary Concourse technology.

Students and their high school counselors uploaded verified records to Concourse, then universities were able to make direct admission and scholarship offers on the easy-to-use online platform.

180 admission offers were made by 17 universities in 5 countries, including over USD $1.5 million in scholarships. The uptake rate was 19%, much higher than the industry average.

Creating a New Normal for 2020 Enrollment and Beyond

The coronavirus pandemic has turned international university admissions upside down, with travel restrictions, delayed visas, and stay at home orders. University World News reports “There are currently doubts about whether some special international programs and exchanges will be able to go ahead in the autumn if restrictions and delays due to COVID-19 persist.”

Concourse Global Clearing provides the answer, with university-friendly benefits including:

– Fast, efficient way to find students for changing enrollment situations
– Easy-to-use, student-friendly virtual admission and offer process
– Expanded lists of certified profiles for more diverse student bodies
– Build and strengthen relationships with counselors around the world

In the U.S., The University of Alabama was a pilot participant in the Global Clearing initiative. Shelley Moss, Assistant Director of International Admissions said, "The University of Alabama believes in giving students from all around the world fair access to admission to our great institution.” Concourse and Grok Global Services share that perspective, and worked with The University of Alabama to put belief into action. Global Clearing enabled The University of Alabama to reach students who had never considered them before.

“We not only engaged with students via Global Clearing but also found ourselves building long term relationships with the participating high schools." She characterized the admissions workflow as simple and said, “We're excited to continue participating."

Simplifying Processes and Improving Results

High school students participating in Global Clearing are pursued by universities with pre-emptive offers and scholarships. This eliminates the onerous, time-consuming need to submit multiple one-off applications. “Universities are so used to students sending them applications. Now Global Clearing is flipping that,” says Misco Mungai, Post School Success Manager at Nova Pioneer in Kenya. “I want this to become the new normal.”

“The Global Clearing project has been so inspiring,” reports Ermek Esenaliev, High School Coordinator at the Silk Road International School in Kyrgyzstan. “In the past few days, my students have received more offers than since the beginning of the academic year.”

“Revenge Prank” Actor Embraces the Era of Getting Even

NEW YORK, NY, USA, June 30, 2020 / — Under the setting sun just outside the Holland Tunnel in lower Manhattan, actor Damian Muziani is not lost on the irony; The 2020 COVID-19 pandemic has made traffic nearly non-existent at times in the Big Apple, but ten stories up, his blue tuxedo-clad image graces a sixty foot-wide billboard ad, teasing rush-hour commuters about their bumper-to-bumper apartment space for a self-storage facility. "Dichotomy is dominating the year 2020 in so many ways," says the busy performer and broadcaster. "It seems like nobody is in the mood to laugh, and yet these pranks are so much fun to watch!"

The pranks in question form a brand new reality show entitled Revenge Prank with DJ Pauly D and Vinny, a 30 minute put-on that takes elements of past hits like Punked and What Would You Do and adds a vital twist: It's payback time for pranksters who went too far in the past and their one-time victims are now doling out the punishment. Muziani is a recurring talent on the show, playing dual roles, beginning this Thursday Night at 9:30 EDT. His challenge is not only to deliver a believable character, but to improvise his way out of a jam if things go off the rails (spoiler alert: they do). "To best enjoy watching this TV show you should imagine it like you're going to see a Broadway play, and one of the lead actors on stage was never given a copy of the script beforehand but everyone else is off-book. Eventually, chaos ensues."

It turns out the format is a perfect fit for Muziani. “I’ve always been a class clown and improv artist and using these skills to hone an acting performance in a slapdash environment is awesome. You have only a day or two to prepare alongside a small cast and crew and then you’ve got exactly one chance to pull it off. If you screw up and break character or fail to keep the victim guessing, then you’ve just wasted a fortune in production time and dollars. And of course, there's an element of real danger involved as well." Muziani plays an angry Russian gangster in the prank, so perhaps the possibility of danger goes with the territory.

The show's new wrinkle to a popular theme has struck gold with viewers right off the bat. The premiere episode of Revenge Prank pulled a .22 rating among adults 18-49, making it the third-most watched non-news cable show in America on Thursday Night.

Every week, hosts (and Jersey Shore alums) Pauly Delvecchio and Vinny Guadagnino team up with one victim each to compete for bragging rights over who pulled off the best prank. Wild N’ Out co-host Justina Valentine is also on hand in several episodes to help dish out the vengeance.

Elsewhere, Muziani has also been charting the recent meteoric rise of writer-comedienne Sarah Cooper, made super-famous nearly overnight as the star of TikTok videos lip-synced to Donald Trump's actual voice in which she performs and edits. Cooper and Muziani co-starred in a successful string of commercials for a banking institution several years ago. "I'm so happy for Sarah," said Muziani, "I've been a huge fan of hers since 9 years ago when we were clowning around in TV commercials together, and it's so reassuring to see very hard work in this business finally paying off."

Later this summer, things heat up even more for Muziani. He will appear as a co-star in a TV pilot entitled Squid Ink which has been accepted into the Portland Comedy Film and Pilot Light TV festivals, and in August will be co-starring in a short two-hander opposite Ebony Obsidian (Sistas, If Beale Street Could Talk) in Such a Deal, directed by Dionna McMillian.

NFL Total Access Analyst Michael Robinson Calls Saquon Barkley "Most Explosive Player"

Saquon Barkley, NFL Star Running Back

NFL Access Analyst, Michael Robinson

"Every time this guy touches the ball, all 11 people on the field have to be on alert. This guy can score from anywhere on the football field." Michael Robinson

LOS ANGELES, CA, US, June 30, 2020 / — Saquan Barkley, otherwise known as a player "touched by the hand of God" after being drafted with the second-overall pick in 2018, has proven to be great a home-run hitter amongst NFL running backs. Having been deprived of his fitness and effectiveness by an ankle sprain, Saquan has won many fans for what promises to be an ambitious and exciting NFL season to come. Amongst those excited for game-changing playmakers includes NFL Total Access, former Penn State quarterback, and Pro Bowl NFL fullback, Michael Robinson.

According to fellow Penn State product Michael Robinson, opposing teams would be foolish to think that Barkley is nothing that they can't control. Robinson has declared Barkley's presence as essential to both Giants quarterback Daniel Jones and first-year Giants head coach Joe Judge. "Every time this guy touches the ball, all 11 people on the field have to be on alert. This guy can score from anywhere on the football field," said Robinson.

"Talk about a first-year head football coach in Joe Judge, the perfect insurance policy for a first-year head coach is to just turn around and hand the football off. The young quarterback, Daniel Jones, hasn't seen all the defenses out there. He’s going to get confused at times”.

Robinson continued by stating, "Guess what guys, turn around and hand the ball off to, yeah I’m going to say it, he is the most explosive football player in the National Football League. I know you all are going to say, ‘Mike you’re just saying that because he’s a Nittany Lion and all that.’ I’m not, guys."

After the departure of the Eli Manning era, Jones and Barkley together have become the core of the new NY Giants generation. Though both will be playing in a new offense this season under new offensive coordinator Jason Garrett, one game late in the 2019 season gave a preview of what the two are capable at full strength together: In a Week 16 win against the Washington Redskins, Jones threw for 352 yards and five touchdowns, while Barkley ran for 189 yards on 22 carries and caught four passes for 90 yards. Barkley scored two touchdowns, one on a 67-yard romp to the endzone and another on a 33-yard pass from Jones.

As Barkley looks to bounce back from a sophomore season short-lived by injury, Barkley and many of his supports are looking forward to what is sure to be a dominant third season.

Renowned autism researcher Dr. Thomas Frazier joins Quadrant Biosciences Clinical Advisory Board

Dr. Frazier will help guide research and clinical acceptance of new Clarifi autism saliva test

Dr. Thomas Frazier joins Quadrant Biosciences Clinical Advisory Board

Dr. Frazier will help guide research and clinical acceptance of new Clarifi autism saliva test

SYRACUSE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2020 / — Quadrant Biosciences Inc. (“Quadrant Biosciences”), a leading developer of epigenetic diagnostic solutions including the first saliva test for autism spectrum disorder, has announced that clinical psychologist and multi-disciplinary autism researcher Thomas Frazier II, PhD, has joined its clinical advisory board.

Dr. Frazier, a Professor of Psychology at John Carroll University, is one of the leading researchers in the field of autism. Before joining the faculty at John Carroll, he was the Chief Science Officer for Autism Speaks, the largest autism advocacy organization in the United States. Previously, Dr. Frazier was director of the Cleveland Clinic Center for Autism and an assistant professor of pediatrics at the Cleveland Clinic Lerner College of Medicine.

For almost 15 years, Dr. Frazier has been involved in the assessment and behavioral treatment of children with autism spectrum disorder. Among his research projects include pioneering work on the potential under-diagnosis of autism in girls and women, and the development of remote eye gaze tracking for the early identification of autism.

“We are thrilled and honored to have someone of Dr. Frazier’s caliber join our clinical advisory board,” said Richard Uhlig, Founder and CEO of Quadrant Biosciences. “He is a highly respected researcher in the autism space, and will bring valuable insights and thought leadership to our company’s efforts. Dr. Frazier will be a great addition to our already exceptional advisory board.”

Dr. Frazier has published more than 120 peer-reviewed research papers, presented more than 150 scientific abstracts, and presented talks at numerous national and international autism research conferences. Among his many professional accolades include receiving the National Institutes of Health Career Developmental Award supporting his multidisciplinary clinical research on the biological effects of autism-linked gene changes.

“I am excited to join the clinical advisory board and work alongside such highly esteemed autism researchers and clinicians to further the implementation and adoption of Clarifi ASD as a useful diagnostic tool for clinicians,” said Dr. Frazier. “I believe that this new biological test can help facilitate earlier, more accurate autism diagnoses and ultimately help children access much needed early intervention services sooner.”

Dr. Frazier received his undergraduate degree magna cum laude in psychology from John Carroll University, and completed both his master’s and doctoral degrees in clinical psychology at Case Western Reserve University. His postgraduate training includes an internship in clinical neuropsychology at Ann Arbor VA Medical Center and a fellowship in clinical neuropsychology at The Cleveland Clinic’s Department of Psychiatry and Psychology, Section of Neuropsychology.
