Empower Kids to Prevent Racially Motivated Bullying

YourUpdateTV

All kids connected with bullying—those who experience it, engage in it, and even witness it—can suffer long-term mental health consequences. Recently, VP of Education, Research, and Impact at Committee for Children & Mom of 2, Dr. Tia Kim, participated in a satellite media tour campaign to talk about racially motivated bullying and ways to empower kids to activate their upstander power. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/WKlo9vIaKdk It's back-to-school season and it's never too early to start talking to kids about racially motivated bullying and empower them to recognize, report, and refuse it so they are set up to make responsible decisions and thrive. Committee for Children is launching its fifth annual Captain Compassion campaign during National Bullying Prevention Month to teach kids how to prevent bullying in all forms, with a special emphasis on behavior motivated by racial bias. Developed by Committee for Children in 2018, Captain Compassion is an anti-bullying superhero who teaches upstanders how to recognize, report, and refuse bullying through a series of engaging, age-appropriate comic strips. One out of five students report being bullied during the school year. In 2019, of the students who reported being bullied, race was the most frequently reported characteristic referred to by hate-related words. To help address this issue, this year’s Captain Compassion comics focus on a school community that’s struggling with the social-emotional effects of racially motivated bullying. With the help of Captain Compassion and her trusty sidekick Kid Kinder®, the entire school community learns how to stand up against bullying to create safe, welcoming, and inclusive environments where children of all backgrounds can thrive. Drawn from Committee for Children’s decades of work in the field of bullying prevention, the Captain Compassion campaign presents free, award-winning comics that provide families, teachers, and caregivers with powerful, research-backed tips to empower their children and communities to stand up to bullying. The Captain Compassion site also includes resources like a Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle for kids, informative videos, downloadable posters, and more. To learn more about Captain Compassion and bullying prevention, visit CaptainCompassion.org each week this October to read brand-new comics and solve the Secret Decoder Wheel puzzle with the children in your life. To learn more about social-emotional learning and Committee for Children, visit cfchildren.org Tia Kim, PhD Bio: Vice President of Education, Research, and Impact Dr. Tia Kim is a developmental psychologist, a parent-child relationship expert, and a mom of two. She believes in a strong family foundation, open lines of communication, and the critical role that parent-child relationships play in children’s safety and well-being. With her experience as a parent, education research scientist, and psychologist, Dr. Kim aims to provide families with simple, research-based tips and insights to help them start conversations about bullying prevention. Dr. Kim began her career in academia but later decided she wanted to see her research in action helping children and youth. Today, she leads Committee for Children’s team of research scientists to develop and evaluate the quality, effectiveness, and impact of the organization’s social-emotional learning programs and family engagement work, including this year’s bullying prevention campaign, Captain Compassion. Dr. Kim received her doctorate in developmental psychology at the University of California, Riverside, and completed three years of post-doctoral training at the National Academic Centers of Excellence in Youth Violence Prevention. Before joining Committee for Children, she served as an assistant professor in human development and family studies at Penn State Brandywine.

Who Might Benefit from Staggering Gaming Growth Projections?

ESE Entertainment Inc

ValueTheMarkets News Commentary - With the gaming market projected to expand from $178bn to $267bn between 2021 and 2025, well-positioned service providers to this industry could reap the benefits. This article discusses the issue with reference to Apple Inc (NASDAQ: AAPL), NVIDIA (NASDAQ: NVDA), Amazon (NASDAQ: AMZN) and ESE Entertainment (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQX: ENTEF). ESE Entertainment (TSXV: ESE) (OTCQX: ENTEF) is an entertainment and technology company focused on gaming and esports. In particular, the business is concerned with player acquisition services and the creation and distribution of digital content. In short, the company are experts in programmatic marketing for the videogames industry. With its targeted programmatic campaigns, the business is clocking up more than 7.3 billion impressions and sourcing 500,000 new players each month using its sophisticated technology. These figures have helped attract the attention of some of the biggest names in the industry and seen ESE Entertainment source legions of players for their games. For example, projects for Roblox and Game of Thrones: Winter is Coming helped bring in 3.6 million and 2 million new players respectively. On the back of these successes, ESE Entertainment has just announced a US$5m contract to deliver its technology and user acquisition services to a major European video game developer and publisher who is a new customer for the business. The company’s CEO, Conrad Wasiela, commented: “This is yet another example of us executing and securing new long-term multimillion dollar contracts for our gaming technology. “We are keenly focused on increasing sales and improving margins, and we believe landing larger technology contracts is the key to achieving these goals. We are excited to continue updating current and future shareholders with new developments at ESE.” It’s the latest update following a slew of positive news from ESE Entertainment, with its recent record-breaking third quarter financial earnings showing 276% revenue growth to CA$15.9m. Gross profit soared too, climbing by 595% to CA$3.1m after the business signed 25 new deals so far this year. The business will be hoping that its customer acquisition expertise and technology will make it a key partner for major developers in the coming years. Apple Inc ( NASDAQ: AAPL ) designs, manufactures and markets smartphones, personal computers, tablets, wearables and accessories. The company also offers payment, digital content, cloud and advertising services. The business’ customers are primarily in consumer, small & mid-sized business, education, enterprise and government markets worldwide. A key way in which Apple Inc is poised to enjoy the gaming boom is through its App Store. The platform is already a major money-spinner for the tech giant and it reportedly features more than one million games alongside other applications. The company has confirmed that it is hiking prices on the App Store platform though, noting that a “slower economy” has impacted revenues. Additionally, the platform is becoming more ad-heavy as Apple Inc looks for more ways to increase revenue. While the company has a tight grasp on consumers through the popularity of its iPhones, it seems like these changes to its mobile gaming platform could hurt its popularity among both gamers and developers. Additionally, while Apple Inc’s iPhone is still enormously popular, the business appears to have had some issues with sales of its new model. Late September saw Bloomberg report that the company was shelving plans to hike production of the iPhone 14 after initially overestimating demand. The business will be hoping that this is merely a blip and not an indicator that its products are losing their appeal. Nvidia ( NASDAQ: NVDA ) designs, develops and markets three-dimensional graphics processors and related software. The company offers products that provide interactive 3D graphics to the mainstream personal computer market. The primary way in which this business enjoys exposure to the videogames industry is through its graphics cards, which are present in many gamers’ computers. These include top-of-the-line chips that utilize advance technology like artificial intelligence but can set users back over $1,500 apiece. In addition to its work on the hardware side of things, Nvidia works with videogame developers through offerings like Omniverse, the company’s real-time design collaboration and simulation platform. The idea behind Nvidia’s software is that it can help artists and designers enjoy more seamless collaboration within the development process as gaming industry progress leads projects to become increasingly complex and challenging. But the omniverse platform is just one of many software applications developed by Nvidia for use by game developers. The company’s expansive suite of game development tools include applications for simulation, asset processing, lighting and 3D creation platforms. The business will be hoping that continued growth in gaming industry revenues will bleed through to both its hardware and software development offerings. Jeff Bezos’ Amazon ( NASDAQ: AMZN ) is an online retailer that offers a wide range of products, including books, music, computers, electronics and numerous other products. The business offers personalized shopping services, Web-based credit card payment and direct shipping to customers. The company also operates a cloud platform offering services globally. While Amazon is perhaps best known for its ecommerce and video streaming service offerings, the company also offers services for videogame development. These come through Amazon Web Services (AWS), the business’ cloud computing platform. The company has boasted that its AWS for Games solution will help developers build, run, and grow their games through dedicated solutions for cloud game development, game servers, game security and more besides. The dedicated gaming offering, which Amazon announced the launch of in March 2022, could be very successful as the company claimed in its most recent earnings that AWS is already the most broadly adopted set of cloud infrastructure services. While the business now has tools on offer for other game developers, the business has also tried its hand at creating games itself. Increasingly ambitious titles from the Amazon Games subsidiary have included New World and Lost Ark. Things haven’t all been plain sailing at the game studio though, with reports last year suggesting workers at the studio faced “draconian” limitations on their own personal projects.

Why Are Companies Expected To Spend Almost $2 Trillion On Collaborative Robots By 2030? One Company Has An Answer: Teamwork

AvaWatz Inc.

Industries spend billions of dollars each year to ensure worker and customer safety. Yet some of those billions of dollars could be saved by using teams of collaborating robots (cobots) to perform work that endangers human workers. Cobot teams can work in otherwise dangerous operating environments and can perform the tedious tasks necessary to ensure customer safety in commercial spaces, airports, railways and mass transit systems. Consider the task of removing harmful debris from an airport runway. Fragments of metal and other materials can fall onto the runway from airplanes, service vehicles, luggage carts and even small fragments can do catastrophic damage. Keeping runways clear is a life-and-death responsibility, and right now it is all done by human workers who walk or drive along the runway to find and remove debris. This is the kind of tedious and dangerous job that could be done by robots, but no single type of robot is exactly right for the job. Flying drone robots are good at detecting debris, but they cannot pick up the debris and remove it; ground robots can pick it up, but they cannot move as fast or see as far as the drones can. If they combine their strengths, a team of air and ground robots together can perform this task with minimal human involvement. Decision-intelligence tech firm AvaWatz is working to make this idea real. The company builds teams of robots with different skills, like traveling off-road or manipulating a specialized tool – the team can combine those skills and use them all together. AvaWatz wants to use robots to reduce risks for humans who have to perform complex tasks in harsh environments and is pioneering the use of collaborative robots or cobots. Cobot teams can solve hard problems for public and private sector customers, including the military and Homeland Security, flightline operations, search and rescue, emergency response, construction, transportation, agriculture, utilities and infrastructure among others – in fact, it is difficult to name a sector that could not benefit in some way from teams of robot workers. The U.S. Air Force, Army, and the Department of Homeland Security have each recognized the need and are funding AvaWatz R&D to advance and grow the technology. The company is focused on driving risk even lower for humans. Giving back to the community is a high priority for AvaWatz — which is why they donate a portion of their revenue to assist with debris pick-up on coastlines. The Size Of The Opportunity The need for cobots is out there, according to AvaWatz. It is predicted that the market for collaborative robots will grow to $1.99 Trillion by 2030. AvaWatz’s initial targets are smart airports, ground transit assets, and surveillance, but the opportunity is not limited to those areas. Such technology can also address the needs of markets where the risk is not only limited to simple human error but also malicious intent. AvaWatz – which has already performed prototype work with the U.S. Air Force – plans initially to work with regional and private airports in the U.S. in addition to the Air Force as it scales to address larger markets. There is also potential to work in fields such as infrastructure repair, railroad inspection and the protection of endangered wildlife species. AvaWatz is reportedly also working on partnerships with drone and ground robot manufacturers such as Skydio and Boston Dynamics. AvaWatz offers an investment opportunity to meet the growing demand for Collaborative Robots – whose market size is predicted to reach almost $2 trillion by 2030 with a CAGR of 12.3% from 2021-2030.

NEWS DIRECT AND ITS BUSINESS WIRE ALUMNI PAY TRIBUTE TO NEWSWIRE PIONEER, BUSINESS WIRE FOUNDER LORRY I. LOKEY

News Direct

News Direct mourns the passing of Lorry I. Lokey, an industry icon who transformed how organizations worldwide communicate with the media and investment community, and who used his substantial wealth to fund education and medical research initiatives. Lokey died October 1 at the age of 95, almost 61 years to the day he founded what became the world's second-largest newswire service, Business Wire. A classic American success story, Lokey started Business Wire in a 9x12 office in San Francisco in October 1961 with only seven clients. He sold the company to Warren Buffett's Berkshire Hathaway in 2006 for a reported $500 million. A signatory to The Giving Pledge, Lokey consistently ranked among the world's most prolific philanthropists. He donated in excess of $700 million to charitable causes, with a strong focus on schools and universities, as well as nanotechnology and stem cell research. In many ways, News Direct is a direct descendent of Business Wire, having been built by several significant former BW longtime executives, including former president, and now News Direct CEO and founder, Gregg Castano. “I worked under Lorry for more than 21 years, and there is no question that I drew inspiration for News Direct from the innovative, fearless and groundbreaking approach he took in building Business Wire from a distant also-ran among newswires to the equal of industry pioneer and powerhouse, PR Newswire,” noted Castano. “Here at News Direct, we view ourselves as picking up that mantle to once again revolutionize the industry using the most current technology, as Lorry did, which seemed to have become much less of a priority in the years following his departure from the company,” Castano continued. “It really shines a light on how truly visionary he was, and how he boldly embraced, rather than resisted, change, which is something I greatly respect, admire and strive to emulate at News Direct.” About News Direct News Direct provides news and content distribution for PR, IR, Corporate Communications and Marketing professionals.
