ADDING A LITTLE “YAY” TO THE HOLIDAY SEASON Meaghan Murphy – Author of Your Fully Charged Life and Lifestyle Expert Provides Tips to Enhance the Holidays

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/3imJXHAmsTQ It’s the time of year to celebrate with friends and loved ones. Lifestyle Expert and Author or Your Fully Charged Life, Meaghan Murphy has a few ways to add a little “YAY” to the holiday season. DRESS FOR THE OCCASSION Trends experts predict robust spending and larger gatherings over the coming weeks. Murphy says a great way to get started is to set the overall tone. “Think about the ambiance… lighting, decorations, and mood music. However, you also want to look the role,” she adds, “So, if you’re like me and planning to host your friends and family this holiday, I suggest shopping J.Jill to find your perfect holiday hosting outfit.” This Wearever Draped-Front Midi Dress is the perfect dress for any hosting occasion. It has flattering crossover draping and the midi length makes it perfect with tights and boots. Murphy says, “These garments also make the perfect gifts for the favorite women in your life, or yourself,” she continues, “I love the Pure Jill Reversible Sherpa Jacket. One side is a plush faux suede and the other is plush cozy Sherpa, so it's like having two coats in one. A blanket scarf is the epitome of cozy, and this one has a brushed texture for added softness.” J.Jill also has extended sizing, XS – 4X online and XS – 2X in-store. Visit your local J.Jill store or JJill.com to find your favorite pieces. Social media handles: Facebook: @ jjillstyle Instagram: @ jjillstyle GET CONNECTED This is the season to connect with friends and loved ones and Murphy says everybody loves a holiday greeting card, or e-card that shows up in your email. But these days, it’s really about using technology to engage with those around us. “That’s why I love the Nextdoor app,” says Murphy, “It’s a neighborhood network that connects you to your neighbors online and in the real world.” Nextdoor’s purpose is to cultivate a kinder world where everyone has a neighborhood they can rely on—and that’s especially important during the holiday season. “Whether you're hosting a cookie exchange, donating to a local charity, or looking for hidden gem boutiques to shop small, Nextdoor is your neighborhood holiday hub. This is a great way to sell things, organize events, and spread the word locally. Download the app or head to nextdoor.com to join your neighborhood,” says Murphy. For more information go to https://nextdoor.com/. Social media handles: @Nextdoor RECIPE LIFESAVERS The lifestyle expert says it’s important to prepare the menu ahead of time, adding “Over the next few weeks there’s a lot going on and a lot to plan. Think about the guests invited to your party and if there are any dietary restrictions. If you aren’t sure, it’s alright to ask within the invitation.” She always recommends starting with some easy apps and meals. One tip is to use frozen meatballs in a holiday recipe. “I grab Farm Rich Meatballs at my local grocery and stock my freezer. This time of year, I like to make pomegranate glazed meatballs. It usually takes about 15 minutes prep time and 30 minutes to cook… the end result is fantastic,” says Murphy. She highlights the many different ways frozen meatballs can enhance a dish. “You can also add them to easy to make turkey meatball soup and cola glazed recipes,” Murphy says, “Personally, I really love adding them to a charcuterie tray. All of these dishes are warm, hearty, and satisfying. Your guests will absolutely love them.” For more information and easy to make recipes, go to FarmRich.com Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

COMCAST IS LAUNCHING NEW MULTI-GIG INTERNET SPEEDS TO DENVER AREA HOMES AND BUSINESSES

Comcast Colorado

On the heels of increasing internet speeds for the majority of customers in Colorado, today Comcast launched an additional multi-gig internet speed tier for Xfinity and Comcast Business customers throughout the Denver Metro Area. Comcast is now delivering download speeds up to 2 gigabits-per-second (Gbps) and up to 5x to 10x faster upload speeds to customers throughout the Denver metro area. “Our network is made for anything, so you can do anything,” said J.D. Keller, Senior Vice President Comcast Mountain West Region. “Comcast continues to be ahead of customer demand, which enables our network to meet our customers’ needs for fast, reliable internet connections. My own kids and family are working, learning, chatting, watching movies or playing games online whenever we are in the house. I know others have the same experience. Comcast’s investments in our network will provide peace of mind to Coloradans that they can stay reliably connected through the technology they have today and be able to meet their needs tomorrow.” The new multi-gig tier and faster upload speeds are part of the largest- and fastest multi-gig network and WiFi deployment in the United States, which Comcast launched earlier in 2022. As an additional component of this initiative, the company plans to introduce multi-gig symmetrical services in the second half of 2023. As markets launch, Xfinity Internet customers who subscribe to xFi Complete will have their upload speeds increased between 5 and 10 times faster. xFi Complete includes an xFi gateway, advanced cybersecurity protection at home and on the go, tech auto-upgrades for a new gateway after three years, and wall-to-wall WiFi coverage with an xFi Pod included if recommended. “By investing in infrastructure upgrades that ensure secure, reliable connectivity for all our residents and businesses, installing free Community WiFi Lift Zones in neighborhoods with the most connectivity needs, and supporting area families with their Internet Essentials Program, Comcast has shown a commitment to the Denver metro area to ensuring Colorado is prepared for tomorrow – today,” said J. J. Ament, President and CEO, Denver Metro Chamber of Commerce. Speeds Supported by an Unbeatable WiFi Experience While fast speeds are table stakes, Comcast is regularly introducing new capabilities to help our customers manage their increasingly connected homes: Next-Level Cybersecurity: Advanced cybersecurity that blocks threats at the gateway, before they reach devices, to keep everyone safe and secure online. WiFi Controls: A dashboard for all the devices connected to the home network with built-in capabilities to pause access, set up parental controls or automate screen-time rules. Wall-to-Wall Coverage: A reliable connection for all connected devices and coverage throughout the home with Xfinity xFi Pod WiFi extenders. Most Recommended Mobile: A top-ranked mobile service according to the ACSI, Xfinity Mobile combines the most reliable 5G with more than 20 million WiFi hotspots to deliver the fastest mobile speeds in Comcast service areas and save people hundreds of dollars per year. Unbeatable Entertainment: 4K streaming to enjoy content in one place and an award-winning voice remote to navigate between them seamlessly. Plus, thousands of hours of free entertainment. More information about the industry’s efforts toward a 10G future can be found here. Visit Xfinity to learn more and sign up for these exciting new products. Facts about Comcast in Colorado: • Comcast has more than 1,200 miles of fiber in the City of Denver – nearly 9,000 miles throughout the state of Colorado. • More than 2.3 million homes and businesses have access to Xfinity and Comcast Business products and services statewide. • Comcast has invested more than $1.2 billion in its network in Colorado alone in the last three years. • We make continuous strategic investments in building broadband network capacity to stay ahead of demand — effectively doubling our capacity every 2.5 years. • Since 2011, Comcast has connected nearly 600,000 income-constrained Coloradans to the Internet through its Internet Essentials Program – the nation’s largest and most successful private-sector low-income broadband adoption program. The program provides income-eligible people the ability to connect to the Internet for $9.95 per month. Additionally, Comcast participates in the Federal Affordable Connectivity Program which provides those who are eligible a $30 per month credit for the Internet service. • As part of Comcast’s ongoing commitment to help connect low-income families to the internet, Comcast also worked with our network of nonprofit, community, and city partners to equip nearly 100 locations across Colorado with WiFi connected Lift Zones where students and adults can get online, participate in learning and workforce development trainings, and access critical resources.

COMCAST IS ROLLING OUT MULTI-GIG INTERNET SPEEDS TO SALT LAKE CITY HOMES AND BUSINESSES

Comcast Utah

Today Comcast launched an additional multi-gig Internet speed tier over its fiber-backed network to Xfinity and Comcast Business customers in Salt Lake City. Salt Lake City is the first community in Utah where Comcast is beginning to deliver download speeds of up to 2 Gbps over the network connections already existing in homes and businesses today. Once the rollout is complete, these multi-gig speeds will be available in all of Comcast’s service area in Salt Lake City, as well as throughout Comcast’s entire footprint in Utah. The new offerings are part of a nationwide rollout that will reach more than 50 million homes and businesses before the end of 2025 – making it the largest- and fastest-ever multi-gig network and WiFi deployment in the United States. In addition to multi-gigabit download speeds, Comcast is introducing faster upload speeds in Salt Lake City to Xfinity Internet customers who choose xFi Complete. New speeds will be paired with Comcast’s multi-gig Wi-Fi experience, which delivers the industry’s best combination of speed, coverage, and control, powered by one of the world’s first Wi-Fi 6E Gateways. Xfinity and Comcast Business customers will receive up to 5x to 10X faster upload speeds than their current levels. Comcast will begin offering 10G-enabled multi-gig symmetrical services in 2023. Network data shows downstream traffic remains 14X greater than upload, so the introduction of symmetrical upload speeds will be well in advance of demand. "One key takeaway from the pandemic remains clear: high-speed internet access is critical for everyone," said J.D. Keller, senior vice president, Comcast Mountain West Division. "Utah businesses need reliable, high-speed internet services -- students need to complete homework -- and families need to connect to loved ones around the globe. Comcast's continued investments in our network ensure Utahns have the technology to participate in today's digital world." “Investing in technology and infrastructure ensures Salt Lake City maintains the fastest and most reliable internet service for our residents,” said Salt Lake City Mayor Erin Mendenhall. “In my work as a founding member of the Utah Broadband Coalition, I’ve seen how the benefits of Comcast’s investments extend to businesses, government organizations, students and all Utahns; including seniors, veterans and those in low-income households. We greatly appreciate Comcast’s announcement today because it prepares us for tomorrow’s demands.” Faster speeds are just one of the consumer benefits made possible through Comcast’s continued efforts to evolve its entire network to 10G. 10G is a next-generation technology platform supported by a global collaboration of companies in the Internet industry focused on building networks that stay ahead of consumer demand for connectivity. Over the past several years, Comcast has been transitioning to a digital network technology – powered by a virtualized platform – that delivers greater reliability and increased performance. With it, rather than maintaining, updating, and replacing traditional analog network appliances by hand – which can take days or even weeks – Comcast engineers can reliably maintain, troubleshoot, and upgrade core network components almost instantly, with a few keystrokes on a laptop or mobile app. This also makes the network much more energy efficient and is an important element of Comcast’s plan to become carbon neutral by 2035. Because Comcast is evolving its entire network architecture, equipment, and customer devices, it’s uniquely positioned to deliver these advancements in speed, reliability, and performance to everyone it serves, not just a select few. And because much of this work is powered by software, these changes can be made with far less disruption to customers than other technologies. The new multi-gig speeds are available today to Xfinity and Comcast Business customers in parts of Salt Lake City and will be rolled out to Comcast markets across the country through 2025. Visit Xfinity or Comcast Business to learn more and sign up for these exciting new products. More about Comcast in Utah: · Comcast has nearly 700 miles of fiber in Salt Lake City – nearly 5,000 miles throughout the state of Utah. · More than 1 million homes and businesses have access to Xfinity and Comcast Business products and services statewide, including more than 100,000 in Salt Lake City. · Comcast has invested more than $389.6M in its network in Utah alone in the last three years. · We make continuous strategic investments in building broadband network capacity to stay ahead of demand — effectively doubling our capacity every 2.5 years. · Since 2011, Comcast has connected nearly 160,000 income-constrained Utahns to the Internet through its Internet Essentials Program –the nation’s largest and most successful private-sector low-income broadband adoption program.

tvScientific Announces Michael Bilow as its First Head of Data Science and the Formation of its Data Science Advisory Board

tvScientific

tvScientific, the leading connected TV performance advertising platform, today announced the strategic appointment of industry veteran Michael Bilow, as its first head of data science, as well as the official launch of its Data Science Advisory Board. Together Bilow and the board will provide strategic guidance over tvScientific's industry leading approach to television attribution. Leveraging the expertise of the board and cutting-edge and effective AI/machine learning algorithms, tvScientific will now enable mass advertiser adoption of TV as a performance channel. Michael Bilow joins tvScientific as a seasoned data scientist with more than a decade of experience in leading teams to apply machine learning and data engineering to solve real world problems. He’s worked with top tech brands like Protabit, where he accelerated COVID-19 antibodies research, and Foursquare, where he led the development of advertising and measurement technologies. Most recently, he was the principal engineer and team lead at Motional, where he led his team in the development of semantic search techniques for unstructured driverless technology data. tvScientific’s first-of-its-kind data science board comprises industry powerhouses with deep experience in the development and application of data science to large-scale problems at leading companies such as Microsoft, Salesforce, Oracle and Yahoo/Overture. Current members include: Dr. Gary Flake, entrepreneur, author, and scientist. Former CTO search & data science at Salesforce, technical fellow and founder of Microsoft Live Labs, VP and founder of Yahoo! Research Labs, and chief science officer of Overture Dr. Andrew Cron, senior vice president/chief scientist at 84.51 and board member at Last Mile Food Rescue, Inc. Former principal data scientist at Citadel Dr. David Pennock, director of DIMACS center and professor of computer science at Rutgers University. Former assistant managing director of Microsoft Research New York and former principal research scientist at Yahoo! Dr. Patrice Simard, chief executive officer at Intelus. Former distinguished engineer at Microsoft Research and chief scientist of Microsoft Ad Center Dr. Scott Rickard, chief data scientist at Citadel LLC. Former CEO of hedge fund Probability Dynamics, professor of electrical engineering at University College Dublin, and the founding director of its Complex & Adaptive Systems Laboratory (CASL). "Enabling search performance advertisers to engage in and succeed with television is a very interesting data science challenge that is particularly well suited for the application and innovation of advanced machine learning approaches,” said Michael Bilow, head of data science at tvScientific. “It's an interesting problem set and us data scientists love interesting problems. I’m excited to be a part of this company." Historically, millions of digital-first advertisers have been unable to enter the television advertising industry because of its high-friction sales processes and inaccurate measurement. The rise of the connected television (CTV) advertising paradigm provides unprecedented opportunities to solve these classic quandaries with its ability to deterministically connect the dots between television ads viewed and business outcomes. “Television advertising is in the middle of a radical transformation, driven by mass consumer adoption of streaming services, in addition to the advent of platforms like tvScientific that enable advertisers to engage in CTV advertising,” said Jason Fairchild, CEO and co-founder of tvScientific. “Our goal is to power millions of businesses to execute performance advertising on television and our advisory board was specifically curated with some of the brightest data scientists and technologists who have spearheaded digital transformation, such as the paid search model, for some of the world’s most innovative companies.” The board will support tvScientific in advancing the state-of-the-art in online advertising. "For most of its history, television advertising has been more art than science. Search and social advertising was a breakthrough because it aligned the economic incentives of all parties,” said Dr. Flake, chair of the advisory board. “But now, perhaps for the first time, we can connect the dots between these disparate systems, revealing holistic patterns that would otherwise be invisible." Through the advisory board’s strategic guidance, tvScientific will advance its goals to become the standard for television attribution and optimization through continued improvement of a fully deployed “set it and forget it” optimization technology. About tvScientific tvScientific is the most sophisticated performance advertising platform built for connected TV. The tvScientific platform makes TV advertising accessible and measurable for brands and apps of all sizes. tvScientific offers a self-managed solution custom built for performance marketers, that simplifies and automates TV buying and optimization, leveraging massive data to prove the actual value of TV advertising. The platform reaches 95% of AVOD inventory using proprietary, deterministic ID technology to measure ad exposure to outcome in an approachable, radically transparent and scalable way. An Idealab company, tvScientific was co-founded by senior executives with deep roots in programmatic advertising, digital media, and ad verification.

Shareholder: Zuckerberg Should Follow Musk’s Lead and Release ‘Facebook Files’

National Legal & Policy Center

As Elon Musk breaks blockbuster news almost daily with releases of internal communications and documents that reveal how much former Twitter executives lied to the public about its censorship practices, a Meta shareholder is calling upon CEO Mark Zuckerberg to take similar steps to be transparent with his current and former Facebook customers. National Legal and Policy Center – which owns stock in the Mountain View, Calif. social media company – will sponsor a shareholder proposal at the company’s next annual meeting in May 2023. The resolution calls for the tech giant to disclose requests it has received from the federal government to remove content from its Facebook platform. “Mark Zuckerberg admitted, matter-of-factly, to Joe Rogan earlier this year that the FBI led Facebook’s moderators to believe the Hunter Biden laptop story was Russian disinformation,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “There are countless other examples of requests by government for Facebook to censor users – indeed, the company even created an online censorship portal with the word ‘takedowns’ in it, for the government to submit such requests.” “Meta shares today are worth one-third of what they were valued on January 1 st of this year,” Chesser added. “Mr. Zuckerberg has used the company as his personal playground to pursue his metaverse fantasies, while letting Facebook wither by reputational ruin. He blames Apple’s privacy protection measures for Facebook’s revenue woes, but the truth is the social media platform is dying from self-inflicted wounds like censorship, which is driving users away.” The text of NLPC’s proposal for a “Report on Government Take-Down Requests” for Meta’s 2023 annual meeting follows: RESOLVED: Shareholders request that Meta Platforms, Inc. (“Company”) provide a report, published on the Company’s website and updated semi-annually – and omitting proprietary information and at reasonable cost – that specifies the Company’s policy in responding to requests to remove or take down content from its platforms by the Executive Office of the President, Members of Congress, or any other agency, entity or subcontractor on behalf of the United States Government. This report shall also include an itemized listing of such “takedown” requests, including the name and title of the official making the request; the nature and scope of the request; the date of the request; the Company’s action or inaction to the request; and a reason or rationale for the Company’s response, or lack thereof. SUPPORTING STATEMENT: In Bantam Books, Inc. vs. Sullivan (1963), and in other cases, the Supreme Court of the United States has ruled that private entities may not engage in suppression of speech at the behest of government, as it has the same effect as direct government censorship. On July 15, 2021, White House press secretary Jen Psaki was asked, “Can you talk a little bit more about this request for tech companies to be more aggressive in policing misinformation? Has the administration been in touch with any of these companies and are there any actions that the federal government can take to ensure their cooperation, because we’ve seen, from the start, there’s not a lot of action on some of these platforms.” Psaki replied, “Sure. Well, first, we are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team, given, as (Surgeon General) Dr. (Vivek) Murthy conveyed, this is a big issue of misinformation, specifically on the pandemic.” Evidence – and testimony by Company Chairman and CEO Mark Zuckerberg – shows the Company has been subject to overtures from the U.S. government to censor. For example, in a podcast interview in August 2022, Mr. Zuckerberg said Facebook restricted reach among users to a New York Post article about Hunter Biden’s laptop, after the FBI told the Company to be on “high alert” for so-called “Russian propaganda.” Also, Facebook maintained a “content requests system” for use by government and law enforcement to request censorship of so-called “disinformation.” The Internet domain for the company’s portal even has the word “takedowns” in it. Shareholders need to know whether the Company cooperates with government officials engaged in unconstitutional censorship, opening the Company to liability claims by victims. Shareholders also need to know whether the Company fails to disclose these potential liabilities as material risks in its public filings.
