LOS ANGELES - August 25, 2022 - (

Sesh Corp (Sesh) is proud to announce award-winning leading American educator, journalist, and mother Esther Wojcicki has joined the company as Chief Parenting Officer.  

In her role at Sesh, Esther will lead the company's parenting content strategy and serve as the leading brand ambassador, helping to curate science-backed advice and techniques for millions of parents around the world.   

"I am very excited and honored to be collaborating with this excellent team of technologists, child psychologists and parenting experts to support parents around the world", said Esther Wojcicki. 

Dubbed the 'Godmother of Silicon Valley,' Esther shares her tried-and-tested methods for raising happy, healthy, successful children in her book, 'How to Raise Successful People: Simple Lessons for Radical Results'.

A leader in Blending Learning and the integration of technology into education, she is the founder of the Media Arts program at Palo Alto High School. Wojcicki serves as Vice Chair of Creative Commons and has previously worked as a professional journalist for multiple publications and blogs regularly for The Huffington Post.

Sesh gives on-demand, real-time coaching to help parents navigate the most pressing childhood behavior struggles, starting with preventing tantrums.

Sesh's patented multi-modal AI technology - developed through intensive research with thousands of families - gives parents the tools to communicate with their children in a way that works. Early research indicated that using the app in the family setting reduced the number, length and intensity of their children's tantrums in all families in the trial, in as little as a week.

Addressing core issues that help shape behavior in a child is critical but often overlooked. Sesh helps parents carefully analyze and solve these issues using the latest educational neuroscience and child psychology research.

Speaking on the impact Esther will have in helping parents improve their parenting skills and make confident decisions, David Dorfman, CEO of Sesh, said: 

"Esther is a legendary educator and parent. Her leadership and experience offer invaluable guidance to parents everywhere. We built Sesh to help parents understand how their child's brain works, what they can do to help them, and be more confident in their parenting skills. Having Esther help lead our efforts is a game-changer for struggling parents."

UPDATE: ,000 Grant Program Aims to Build High School Students’ College / Career Decision-Making SkillsThe Alliance for Decision Education will award the grants and support program implementation

PHILADELPHIA - August 25, 2022 - (

The Alliance for Decision Education, a national nonprofit spearheading a movement to have decision-making skills taught in K-12 schools, announced the launch of an 18-month grant program aimed at preparing high school students for life after graduation. 

The grant - Planning Your Path: A College and Career Decision-Making Incubator - is for high schools that want to bring Decision Education into their classrooms by designing programs that broadly impact the way students make decisions about careers and college. 

"This program aims to help students navigate one of the most challenging and important decisions in their young lives: What to do after high school?" said Alliance Director of Education Megan Roberts. "Empowering students with key decision-making skills and processes will help them form better decisions and make them feel more confident in their ability to do so."

The Alliance, supported by two Nobel Laureates and leaders in nearly every industry, has been working since 2014 to build and coalesce the interdisciplinary field of Decision Education, which draws on concepts from psychology, neuroscience, behavioral economics, and decision sciences.

Through the grant program, each selected school will appoint a team of 3-5 staff members to lead work on their projects, take part in professional development, and receive coaching from an Alliance Education Manager. School teams are expected to learn about Decision Education throughout the grant period, and projects will eventually be shared with a national audience.

The application window opens on August 22 and closes on October 7. Awards will be made in late October.

Two Iconic Veteran-Owned Brands Join Forces to Feature ‘Military Slang Dictionary’ Apparel SAN DIEGO - August 25, 2022 - (

Veteran Entertainment Television (VET Tv) is proud to announce an official partnership with patriotic apparel brand Grunt Style on a new product line. The new products will feature phrases from the best-selling book "Military Slang Dictionary." 

Grunt Style, who licensed the rights to the book, will oversee the production of unique apparel, stickers, patches, and other merchandise based on the dictionary's words and art. 

"Lance commandants" everywhere have been reading the book to try to understand what more senior troopers mean when they say "Man, you are '8-UP.'" With more than 2,500 words and definitions to choose from, the Military Slang Dictionary has all the call-outs and phrases veterans have come to know and love (hate, too) over the past 247 years.

Grunt Style's initial offerings will feature a collection of select phrases from the book, including "HMFIC," "SNAFU," and "Out-f***ingstanding."

"Generations of veterans, myself included, have used so many of these phrases that they become part of our way of life and key phrases in our vocabulary — for better or worse," said Waco Hoover, CEO of VET Tv. 

"We're really proud to partner with Grunt Style in this initiative. We share more than just an audience — we're both focused on building a sense of community with our fellow veterans, and we can't wait to see what's next."

Glenn Silbert, Grunt Style's CEO, is excited to launch this new product line. 

"At Grunt Style, we are always looking for authentic and innovative ways to bring new products to our customers. We know fans and subscribers of VET Tv will be excited to see what we've done with the 'Military Slang Dictionary' and will be fired up to see some of those familiar phrases from their days in uniform on a Grunt Style T-shirt."

The shirts are shipping now from the Grunt Style website at
