Minuteman Press International Inc

When it comes to operating his Minuteman Press franchise in Houston over the past 15-plus years, Steve Edman keeps it simple and sticks to what has made him successful as a small business owner. He says, “Our success and longevity can be attributed to having fantastic employees, 3 full-time and 1 part-time. I also personally stay proactive with visiting and delivering excellent printed products to our customer base.” Steve adds, “We’ve grown our business by consistently providing quality print and quick turnaround. We provide all things printing such as booklets and manuals, as well as marketing and mailing services. Whatever our customers need, we can provide.” Minuteman Press in Houston/Bellaire is located at 4662 Beechnut Street; Steve describes his business community as “positive and appreciative.” He further shares, “I originally started in the beer business for the largest wholesaler in the world as a Driver Salesman. I retired after 24 years as a Regional Manager, and then decided to buy this business. Thanks to our hard work and building real relationships with our clients, here I am 15 years later and counting.” Steve also credits being part of the Minuteman Press franchise family for supporting him along the way.

Ultimately, as he reflects on the past 15-plus years, Steve is happy with his decision to change industries following his career retirement and buy a printing business. He shares, “Printing remains vital today because it puts your products, messaging, and brand directly in the customer’s hands. We love meeting our clients’ needs by providing high quality printed products that help them reach out to and engage with their target audiences.” Steve adds, “I get great satisfaction from making those deliveries and providing the finished products to my clients. I am also very gratified with being able to build my business and reap the rewards.” As for what advice he would give to other business owners, Steve keeps it simple again and offers some poignant advice: “Hit the streets, hire the right people, and always follow up with the customer so you can learn from them. That is what has always worked for me.” Steve Edman’s Minuteman Press franchise is located in the Bellaire area at 4662 Beechnut St., Houston, Texas 77096.

Understanding the Importance of Lowering Your Cholesterol to Help Decrease Your Risk for Heart Disease

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/_EQumoCuW6U High cholesterol is the single biggest cause of illness and death in America affecting more than 94 million adults in the United States, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. For some people, it is their genes that lead to very high LDL (“bad”) cholesterol. One of the most common causes of genetically high cholesterol is familial hypercholesterolemia (FH). FH impacts 1 in 250 individuals worldwide, and if untreated it leads to early heart attacks and strokes. There are already decades of research showing that high LDL cholesterol is a major risk factor for heart disease. And recent data has shown that having lower LDL for longer is one of the best things people can do to reduce your risk for heart disease. While a healthy diet and exercise are important for many reasons, diet and exercise alone cannot lower many people’s cholesterol to a safe level, especially if they have a genetic cholesterol-related disorder. There are medications that can significantly reduce the level of cholesterol in the bloodstream. Statins are the first line of defense when it comes to getting your LDL-cholesterol to a safer level. A new study on the safety and effectiveness of statins shows the vast majority of people do not have side effects from statins, and they not only reduce the LDL cholesterol, they also reduce the risk for heart attacks and cardiac death. The American College of Cardiology also just updated its expert guidance for medical experts treating patients and suggested an LDL target of less than 55 mg/dL for individuals with established cardiovascular disease. The Family Heart Foundation has a variety of resources for understanding treatment options for lowering high cholesterol and treating FH. Visit MoreFamiliesMoreHearts.org to learn more.

Ready for Ron Announces Military & Veterans Initiative

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President, announced a new initiative to recruit military, veterans, and families to sign its petition to encourage Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ‘Veterans Ready for Ron’ led by Captain Bob “Shoebob” Carey, US Navy (Ret), will actively engage veterans, military and family voters, and veterans organization leaders. Carey had previously led the RNC’s highly successful 2016 Veterans programs, and numerous veterans and military engagement campaigns. Governor DeSantis is a U.S. Navy veteran, deploying to Iraq in support of the Navy’s SEALs, receiving a Bronze Star Medal, and as Governor is the Commander in Chief of the 12,000 members of the Florida National Guard. “Supporting Ron DeSantis is an easy decision for those who wore the uniform for our country,” stated Captain Bob “Shoebob” Carey, leader of the Veterans Ready for Ron effort. “His record supporting veterans and those in military service is unmatched.” “America needs Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President in 2024, to rebuild and restore our military and honor the pledges this country made to those military veterans once they leave service. He is a decorated veteran, runs one of the largest National Guard forces in the country, and tries to make up for VA ineptitude by building additional veteran assistance programs within his state of Florida,” Carey continued. As a Member of Congress, then Representative DeSantis was a leader on veterans issues, getting bills passed into law that restored combat wounded veterans’ unjustly reduced severance benefits, made Stolen Valor acts a crime, getting a Washington, DC memorial for veterans of the Global War on Terror, getting the VA to pay for service dogs for disabled veterans, and awarding the Congressional Gold Medal to American Ace fighter pilots. Veterans Ready for Ron is recruiting and deploying prominent veterans to lead a public effort to raise awareness, recruit additional veteran and military family voters, and build the veteran organization leadership support for a DeSantis candidacy. “I am thrilled to be working with Bob on this important initiative,” stated Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist Ed Rollins. “His record of engaging with patriotic Americans who selflessly served our country is impressive. We are glad he is on the Ready for Ron team and look forward to building a movement together.” Bob Carey was a driving force behind the most successful military and veteran voter engagement campaigns in modern American political history. For the 2014 and 2016 campaigns, Bob Carey was National Director of Military and Veteran Engagement for the Republican National Committee, recruiting 50 full-time veteran staffers nationwide, more than 400 active veteran volunteer leaders, more than 500 members of state and regional military and veteran “Task Forces” to support the Republican National Committee and the Trump election effort, while also identifying 1.8 million voters nationwide in various databases as military and veteran voters. Republicans won the veteran vote by 27 percentage points in 2016, the greatest margin of victory ever. “I’m asking all military and veterans to join me in convincing Governor Ron DeSantis, U.S. Navy combat veteran, to bring to the rest of the country his leadership and understanding of what the military and veterans need from their Commander in Chief,” Carey continued. The declining economy, inflation, crime, and erosion of the American military significantly impact veterans and military families. We need confident, dependable, and proven leadership like only Ron DeSantis can deliver to turn the tide.” Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted tens of thousands of supporters, generated significant media attention, and run hundreds of ads to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President. Ready for Ron has emerged as the only credible independent organization in support of a Ron DeSantis candidacy. Americans are encouraged to sign the petition at readyforron.com to draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a Ready for Ron or Vets Ready for Ron spokesperson, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com.

Understanding Inherited Cancer Risk and Genetic Testing

YourUpdateTV

For certain cancers that disproportionally or exclusively affect women, like breast and ovarian cancer, there is a bias to focus on the mother’s side of the family tree in health conversations. And for many, especially previvors – people living at risk of a particular disease but not yet diagnosed – that seemed like enough. But as research has evolved and our understanding of inherited risk has deepened, it has become clearer that genetic risk on our dad’s side of the family can also increase an individual's breast and ovarian cancer risk. Recently, Cancer Previvor Jen Culton and Board-Certified Physician Assistant, Skyler Jesz, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss inherited risk from dad’s side of the family and some tips to help you take a proactive approach to your health. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/0cFRDhC4JHs A recent survey from Myriad Genetics,, a leader in genetic testing, underscores that dad’s side of the family is often overlooked, and much more: More than a third of women do not feel knowledgeable about their father's side of the family. Only 30% of women are very comfortable speaking with their father about their potential risk of getting breast or ovarian cancer, compared to 57% being very comfortable speaking about it with their mother. This is much lower in comparison to the almost 80% of women who consider themselves knowledgeable about their mother’s family health history. 48-year-old Jen Culton sought genetic testing in 2013 after her older sister’s breast cancer diagnosis to find out if she might be at risk. Results showed that she carries a BRCA1 gene mutation and is at increased risk of developing the disease. The news came as a surprise. Jen knew her mother’s health history and it didn’t include cancer. What she didn’t know then: her father’s family history of cancer; the gene mutation came from him. She used this information to take proactive measures to address her risk. For more information, visit myriad.com/knowyourrisk About Jen Culton: Jen Culton is a 48-year-old living previvor. She is at risk for breast and ovarian cancer and came to learn about it in unexpected and surprising ways. It began with her sister Mickey Marasco. Mickey was diagnosed with breast cancer in 2013. Her doctors recommended she undergo genetic testing, and it was discovered that she carries a BRCA1 gene mutation. While undergoing cancer treatment, Mickey had one request: that all six of her siblings undergo genetic testing as well. The siblings went for testing together, and two of Mickey’s sisters (Jen being one of them) were also found to carry the same BRCA1 mutation. For Jen it came as a surprise. She knew her mother’s side did not have a history of cancer. Later she learned that her father’s side did and the gene mutations actually came from their father’s side of the family. But the family’s story doesn’t end there. Jen has three biological daughters – 26, 19, and 10 – who are now facing a similar reality. Genetic testing confirmed that Jen’s oldest daughter is not BRCA1 positive. Her second daughter, however, inherited the BRCA1 mutation from Jen, as well as an ATM gene mutation from her father. Her chances of developing cancer are extraordinarily higher than that of the average woman, up to 87% for breast cancer. With this knowledge, she’s ready to face what’s next, and is considering what proactive measures she should take for her health – just like her mom and her aunts, also BRCA1 positive who sought out proactive measures to manage their risks, and all three are now thriving. About Skyler Jesz, Board Certified Physician Assistant: Skyler Jesz is an Omaha native. She attended the College of Saint Mary, where she earned a Bachelor of Science in Biology. She moved away from Omaha for the first time to attend the physician assistant program at Des Moines University in Des Moines, Iowa. Upon completion of the program, Skyler began her career in the primary care setting, working in a private family practice just outside of Omaha. After more than four years as a primary care provider, she transitioned to her current OBGYN setting. Skyler loves being part of a medical practice that puts patients first and uses the most up-to-date research and recommendations to provide comprehensive and compassionate care. She has a passion for preventative medicine, including genetics and cancer risk assessment. Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Freelancer wins US$6.7m task order with NASA and the National Institutes of Health in gene editing

FREELANCER.COM

Freelancer Limited (ASX: FLN, OTCQX: FLNCF), the world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace by number of users and jobs posted, today announced it has won a US$6.7 million task order for NASA and the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Office of the Director (OD) Division of Program Coordination, Planning, and Strategic Initiatives (DPCPSI) Office of Strategic Coordination (OSC). NIH seeks two, three-phased contests to encourage technology development in two areas of strategic significance as part of Phase II of the NIH Somatic Cell Genome Editing (SCGE) program: A highly efficient (e.g. 50%+ editing efficiency) non-viral delivery system capable of crossing the blood brain barrier to deliver genome editing machinery to a majority of target cell types in the central nervous system. A programmable (e.g. 3+ configurations) delivery system to deliver genome editing machinery that can target specific tissues or cell types. Somatic cell genome editing holds great promise in treating various diseases. However, current techniques in genome editing approaches, such as those based on CRISPR-Cas9, pose many challenges that need to be overcome before they can be widely used in the clinic. For example, the delivery of genome editors to clinically relevant cells and tissues and achievement of editing efficiency that is adequate for addressing human diseases. These contests will be administered under the America COMPETES Act and will be launched on Freelancer.com with a total prize purse of US$6,000,000 (GMV). This is the biggest task order to date under NASA’s NOIS2 and to be selected is testimony to the company’s track record of delivery to date under the program. It is expected that FLN will generate approximately US$700,000 in net revenue contribution for this task order. About the NIH SCGE Program The NIH Common Fund’s Somatic Cell Genome Editing (SCGE) program is working to improve the efficacy and specificity of gene editing approaches to help reduce the burden of common and rare diseases caused by genetic changes. SCGE is developing quality tools to perform and assess effective and safe genome editing in non-reproductive (“somatic”) cells of the body. These research tools will be made widely available to the research community to reduce the time and cost required to develop new therapies. About Freelancer Twelve-time Webby award-winning Freelancer.com is the world’s largest freelancing and crowdsourcing marketplace by total number of users and projects posted.
