What is MrChadd?

Mr.Chadd is a modern way to help students with their school. A lot of children have difficulties with planning and doing their homework, this can be a problem just because of the time it takes, but also because they need some extra care. This care can be in the form of a person who checks what must be done or simply a sparring partner to some extra time from a professional coach of the subject.

Most companies that help students/children with these tasks are traditional and work with someone who comes at your house or you go to a designated place. Mr.Chadd works a little more modern: they offer help through a website and app. The coaches that work at MrChadd are mostly young students in the right field, but are qualified to teach younger people. The advantage of using students is that they have recent memory of the subject and can relate to the world of the younger people who need help on the subject. And both are of the app-generation so they know how to message eachother and use the app.

so if you need some tutoring or extra help with your homework, take a look at Mr.Chadd.

Who is Liv Boeree?

Olivia “Liv” Boeree is a British poker player as well as a television presenter, science communicator, writer, model, speaker and charity supporter. She was born on July 18, 1984, in Kent, England.

Her poker career kicked off in 2005 when she got selected as one of five contestants in the reality TV show “Ultimate Poker Showdown.” She showed a great talent for the card games from the start and was able to take her game to the next level with help from famous high rollers such as Phil Hellmuth, Annie Duke and Dave Ulliott.

Her first real breakthrough came in 2010 when she won the European Poker Tour (EPT) event in Sanremo. At that time, this was the biggest poker tournament held in Europe, during which Boeree crushed her opponents and won €1,250,000. She was the third woman in history to win an EPT title.

She continued her streak of wins, and in 2017, at the World Series of Poker (WSOP) in Las Vegas, she won the $10,000 No-Limit Hold ‘em Tag Team Championship for $273,964 in a team effort, along with her boyfriend (and a legendary poker player in his own right), Igor Kurganov.

Boeree continues to travel around the world under the banner of Team PokerStars Pro. And as of 2017, her total live poker tournament winnings amount to more than $3,500,000.

But being one of the top poker players in the world is only one of the hats that Boeree currently wears. She started her higher education at Ashford School, Kent, and went on to earn First Class Honors degree in Physics with Astrophysics from the University of Manchester. Her lifelong interest in physics, game theory and education inspired her to give her first TEDx Talk in Manchester in February 2018. Moreover, she was a guest speaker at Oxford University as well as many other educational and business institutions around the world, including the Google HQ in Mountain View, California. 

She also has a growing YouTube channel where she explores profound scientific ideas in a light-hearted way. On the list of her videos, you can find the ones about supercomputers, the physics of water wheels or a lecture about the engineering of the Panama Canal. With wide-ranging interests and passions, Liv Boeree is a real modern polymath, leaving no stone unturned in her pursuit of knowledge. Even in the profile photo on her Twitter account (which has over 140,000 followers), she poses with an owl, a symbol of wisdom.

In addition to poker tournaments, Boeree frequently appears on stage as a powerful speaker at conferences such as TED.

Boeree’s brand goes way beyond social media and the internet. She appeared on television numerous times and worked with production companies such as the Discovery Channel, Red Bull TV, Channel 4, NBC, BBC as well as ITV. In her programs, she often talks about persuasion, mind manipulation or game theory. She’s a persuasive speaker and always keeps her cool, which contributes to her success in the poker sphere, too. 

Finally, she and her boyfriend Igor Kurganov are deeply involved in charity work and the “effective altruism” movement popularized by a young scholar William MacAskill. The idea behind this philosophy is to make the world a better place by transferring funds only to the most effective charities that can make the most significant positive impact in the world. Boeree is also a founder and ambassador for Raising for Effective Giving or REG Charity, which encourages poker players to give away parts of their earnings to charitable causes. 

In the future, expect Boeree to continue exploring her intellectual interests and sharing valuable insights with the world. She’s not only a talented poker player but also an individual gifted with an insatiable curiosity and thirst for new knowledge. It doesn’t matter if she’s involved in developing her poker career, charity work or another television gig, there is always something new and exciting on her to-do list.

What is Absinthe?

Absinthe is a beverage with a kind of a history: it was said that I could make you hallucinate. There are stories that famous painter Vincent van Gogh cut off his ear under the influence of absinthe. The chemical compound thujone which is present in absinthe was blamed for these effects and the reason it was banned in the United States and several European countries in 1915. Recent studies show that this spirit is not any more dangerous than any other spirit.

Since the 1990s it has become a more popular drink, due to the lifting of the ban. Absinthe itself is high in alcohol (45% tot 74%) and is anise flavoured. It is derived from botanicals, flowers and leaves, anise, fennel and other herbs. Traditional absinthe has a green colour but is also available without colour. Because of the stories of hallucination and the green colour it is often referred to as The Green Fairy.
