The Center for Philanthropy and Nonprofit Leadership at the University of Maryland was started three years ago with a grant for startup money donated by Bruce and Karen Levenson. More donations totaling $5.6 million soon followed, all from the Levensons, said a press release from PR Newswire. Innovative courses and programs are offered by the Center. This includes several classes per semester that pay out $10,000 gifts to worthy nonprofits. A program just completed by the Center sent twelve graduate students to India to work at three nongovernmental organizations. One focused on the disabled, one focused on wildlife preservation, and the last was a youth outreach program. For the fourth year in a row, the Center has sponsored the Do Good Challenge. Thousands of students at the University of Maryland will compete in a challenge to make the greatest social impact on their favorite causes. Winners receive $20,000 in prize money to further their causes. Karen Levenson, an alumnus of University of Maryland, calls it leveraged philanthropy at its best. She also feels that the Center has the potential to make a profound impact in terms of worthy causes. Bruce Levenson of UCG feels that the Center has a dual purpose. First students are being taught the skills needed to work in the nonprofit sector. At the same time, the Center ensures that graduates of the University of Maryland will be informed philanthropists when they graduate.

When Alex Hern asks, “but really, what is VR?”, there’s an understanding that VR (a popularly abbreviated version of virtual reality simulates the idea of being exactly where the VR is projecting. Deeper than that, it’s an artificially realized world that triggers all of an individual’s senses in order to create as genuine a sense of reality as possible. As immersive as the experience is, it requires the person or people to be completely enveloped in every way.
Alex Hern comes in with the Tsunami XR which pushes forth an experience in AR or augmented reality which hits on different ways of perceiving things without pulling the person into a sort of escapism. Specifically, they gather data, research certain things and make sure employees are given the best working experience.
With Tsunami workplaces, according to Alex allows users to experience working without traveling as much by way of “virtual offices.” Though video games are implementing virtual reality and soon beginning to shift to augmented reality, Alex Hern’s Tsunami XR has a firmer grasp on AR which gives a different approach to the five senses that sets them apart from their competition.

During his time with Control Data in the early 80s, Serge Belamant successfully created the first scientifically driven financial system using only Control Data equipment. After this time he became a consultant for Bancorp, during which he created a 10-step program for analyzing risk and testing business sustainability. He was soon acquired by SASWITCH, a South African ATM company that had fallen on hard times. This was in large part instigated after sanctions were placed on it. As a result of his revolutionary innovations for them, SASWITCH was the second largest ATM company in the world by the end of the 80s.
In 1989 Serge Belamant made his biggest innovation for SASWITCH. This invention is now recognized as the earliest iteration of cryptocurrency technology. However, SASWITCH, which was owned by the banks of South Africa, opted not to use it since the banks feared that it was so good it would render their infrastructures useless. As a result of this, Belamant quit SASWITCh and started his own company called Net1 Technologies where he manufactured and sold Smart Cards with this technology. For its first few years, NET1 did not do that well. Its big breakthrough came in 1995 when VISA hired Serge Belamant to invent fraud software for them using his NET1 technology.
The result was Chip Offline Pre-authorized Card, which still remains in use by VISA. Things kept on getting better for that and they were soon listed on the Johannesburg Stock Exchange. In 1999 Net1 purchased and absorbed Cash Payment Services which paid welfare grants for the South African government. Net1 so excelled at his new role that its services in this area now also include Botswana, Burundi, Ghana, Iraq, Russia, and Namibia. By the turn of the millennium, Net1 was doing so well that by 2005 Net1 was securely listed as a public company on the NASDAQ in New York. During that same year, Serge Belamant was made the company’s Chairman and CEO in the tech world.
