Don’t let online education turn into the next crisis that hits people of color hardest

When historians look back at 2020, they might see some important lessons about how problems become really big problems when left to fester. 

First, COVID-19 shut down the American economy and killed over 112,000 Americans — disproportionately African American — because we failed to establish the proper public health response early to address it. 

Then, intense national protests erupted in every major city because of our persistent inability to address systemic racism, which manifested itself this time in the brutal police killing of George Floyd.

Problems don’t go away if we try to sweep them under the rug. They just get worse.

Another crisis now looms. Since tens of millions of Americans began sheltering in place in March, the nation’s schools have switched to remote learning. Many teachers, students and parents were unprepared for distance learning, which could become a permanent fixture of education. And once again, communities of color

Why you should just hire an expert instead of paying for an online course

This might shock you, but the e-learning industry will kill millions of businesses. Before you buy an online course, you should consider your options. I’ll lay it out for you and you can decide for yourself.

I’m not against e-learning or online courses. In fact, my company offers courses and we have several trusted partners who offer courses. But digital education is not always the answer. 

Seeing trends before they crest

In Zero to One, author and legendary investor Peter Thiel asks a question that is now part of every entrepreneur’s preparation process before raising money. He asks, “What important truth do very few people agree with you on?”

Thiel asks this question because those who view the world differently often see the biggest business opportunities before everyone else. Professor Rohit Bhargava writes about the power of trend-spotting in his latest book, Non-Obvious Megatrends, and I’ve written

Who am I buying from when I shop online?

In April 2019, fans of the makeup influencer Jaclyn Hill noticed her new eyeshadow palette, normally $38, on Walmart.com for the unbelievably low price of $16.39. Many rushed to buy; others were skeptical: Hill had announced that the palette would be available only through certain retailers, and Walmart wasn’t one of them.

Soon, Hill confirmed their suspicions. “It is not my palette,” she said on Twitter. “They are FAKE!”

The counterfeit palette had infiltrated Walmart’s website, but it wasn’t being shipped from Walmart warehouses. Instead, it was “sold and shipped by Mallroom Global Inventory LLC,” one of tens of thousands of “third-party sellers,” independent businesses that list their wares on Walmart’s app and website.

Walmart is famously hands-on with the merchandise in its physical stores, working with manufacturers on design, packaging, and pricing. Its website and app are different. There, more than 35,000 third-party sellers are listed alongside the

Buy and Renew Two Wheeler Insurance online

There are two types of two wheeler insurance policy:

  1. Third Party Liability Insurance or Liability Cover only
  2. Comprehensive Policy or Package Policy

Third Party Liability Insurance

Third party liability insurance is mandatory in India as per the law. This policy covers only the damages or loss caused by the insured bike to the third party or property. It also provides personal accident cover for the bike owner. However, none of the insurers will cover for any loss, damages incurred or theft of the insured bike.

Comprehensive Policy

To protect your two wheeler completely, you must opt for a comprehensive two wheeler insurance policy. Because it provides a complete financial protection against bike own damages and also any third party loss or damages caused due to the insured vehicle. You don’t have to worry, if your two wheeler gets stolen, as a comprehensive policy also covers bike theft.
