New Tech Paves the Way for Faster Airport Security

MarketJar

Airport security delays and operational disruptions are becoming an increasingly common headache for travelers around the globe, often leading to missed flights and mounting frustrations. A recent incident at Birmingham Airport vividly illustrates this growing problem. Lucy Kenneally and her boyfriend Matthew experienced the chaos firsthand when they endured a staggering four-hour wait in the security line and ultimately missed their flight. 1 Days later, Gatwick Airport faced significant delays after a fire alarm in the South Terminal prompted a full evacuation, causing passengers to be stuck on the runway and leading to a cascading effect of delayed departures. 2 Of course, these are just a few examples that highlight a much bigger issue. In reality there are thousands of delayed flights every day across the US and up to 20,000 delays every single day around the world. The problem has gotten so bad that the Biden administration has developed a new rule to address one of the most pressing travel grievances: flight delays. 3 Announced in late April, the rule mandates airlines to provide automatic refunds for delays that disrupt travelers' plans significantly, reflecting a major shift towards enhancing passenger rights. Another major issue that demands an urgent solution are airport security breaches. According to the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA), there have been at least 300 instances of people bypassing parts of airport security in the last year. 4 These security concerns are coming to light at a time when the TSA is working to solve airport security issues by upgrading checkpoints with more advanced technology developed by AI security company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF). Liberty Defense specializes in advanced security solutions tailored for areas with high pedestrian traffic and heightened security needs, including airports, stadiums, and educational institutions. The company's flagship product, HEXWAVE, licensed from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), offers discreet, scalable protection that detects both metallic and non-metallic weapons. Revolutionizing Airport Security with Advanced Technology Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) has successfully deployed HEXWAVE across various market verticals and signed several large contracts with airports around the globe. The company also inked a $3.8 million contract with the TSA for its High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) Wideband Upgrade Kit to improve detection capabilities and enhance the passenger experience. On May 13, Liberty Defense announced that its HEXWAVE system has been selected by the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) to enhance the TSA’s Aviation Worker Security Screening. ROC, a vital transportation hub serving about 2.4 million passengers annually with 120 daily flights, is now the first U.S. airport to integrate HEXWAVE into its security operations. This deployment marks a notable step in using advanced technology to bolster airport security and operational efficiency. “As industry leaders, we are excited to be the first airport in the United States to acquire the HEXWAVE system to use in our broader airport security program,” said Deputy Director at the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport Andrew Moore. “ We will use the HEXWAVE to provide enhanced security and an improved screening experience in non-traditional areas of the airport. We are excited to work with Liberty Defense as we are continually looking to innovate and improve the overall safety of our airport.” Unlike traditional weapon detection technologies, HEXWAVE utilizes millimeter wave technology, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect a wide range of concealed metallic and non-metallic threats—including liquid, powder and plastic explosives, and 3D printed ghost guns—without requiring passengers to remove common items like belts and shoes. This capability allows for a faster, more seamless screening process, enhancing the flow of traffic and reducing bottlenecks at security checkpoints. Liberty Defense is also expanding into international markets, announcing a recent shipment of its HEXWAVE™ system to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands and Subic Bay Airport in the Philippines.

MODERN MARKET EATERY DEBUTS SUSTAINABLE SHRIMP IN ITS NEW SUMMER MENU ROLLOUT

Modern Market Eatery

Modern Market Eatery, the Colorado-based fast casual concept specializing in scratch-made meals using clean ingredients, announced today the addition of sustainable shrimp to the summer menu. The new summer menu rolls out across Modern Market Eatery’s 31 restaurants nationwide today. The shrimp is sourced only from farms certified by the Marine Stewardship Council (MSC), whose work with fisheries, scientists and industry stakeholders ensure oceans are fished sustainably to make it easier for consumers to find and buy certified sustainable seafood. Modern Market Eatery is doing just that for its guests by incorporating only MSC-certified shrimp in its menu items. Modern Market Eatery guests have demonstrated their affinity for seafood as salmon and tuna are among the brand’s best-selling options. After careful sourcing, the summer menu will feature the following sustainable shrimp entrees in addition to the core menu: Shrimp BLT Salad – In Modern Market Eatery’s take on BLT, magical bacon bread crumbs (combination of panko and bacon) join chilled herbed shrimp in its salad made of arugula and spring mix, heirloom cherry tomato and red onion. To top it off, blue cheese and avocado are placed on top of the chilled herb shrimp along with a generous sprinkle of these special bacon breadcrumbs. The dish is finished with a low-fat, basil buttermilk dressing, bringing diners a bright, fresh and delicious summer option for combatting the heat. Green Goddess Shrimp Bowl – Contrary to typical green goddess dressing, Modern Market Eatery’s version is lighter and healthier with its Greek yogurt base and capers’ addition. The dressing is drizzled on top of a bed of organic rice and quinoa, marinated kale, roasted zucchini, watermelon radish, marinated red pepper, goat cheese and the menu’s debut -- chilled herb shrimp to make this bowl the perfect dish to enjoy during the heat of summer. Protein Option – Sustainable shrimp can now be added to any menu item as a protein selection in guests’ customizations. Modern Market Eatery’s emphasis on healthy-sourced proteins has been at its core since the company’s founding 15 years ago. The quality of the proteins, coupled with their versatility, have been offered as freshly sliced-to-order options, and sustainable shrimp will afford diners the same choices. Also debuting on the summer menu is the Sweet Corn Chicken Pizza and a return of a Modern Market Eatery fan favorite, Summer Seared Ahi Tuna Salad. “At Modern Market Eatery, we never cease to innovate. That’s exactly what we did with the debut of sustainable shrimp on our new summer menu. We continue to deliver food our guests enjoy through a healthy, sustainable lens without ever skimping on flavor,” explains Nate Weir, vice president of culinary at Modern Market Eatery. “The new, herbaceous menu items are no exception to our commitment to food standards and our guests’ preferences. Our seafood entrees have continuously been among our top sellers, and the addition of these new shrimp items affords them yet another choice. Our sustainable shrimp offers a lighter, versatile protein that can complement any dish on Modern Market Eatery’s menu, even those where shrimp isn’t the headliner. It pairs well with many of our new and core menu items, and we’re confident our guests will embrace this new protein option,” Weir concludes. About Modern Market Eatery Founded in 2009 in Boulder, Colo., Denver-based Modern Market Eatery continues to prove faster food can be better food by making it easy to access fresh, nourishing and delicious meals.

Shedding Light on Cystic Fibrosis Awareness Month

YourUpdateTV

Cystic fibrosis (CF) is a rare, progressive, and genetic disease that currently affects about 40,000 people in the United States. CF is the result of a defective gene, inherited from each parent, and the disease can impact people of all races and ethnicities. Recently, KC White, Board Chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the disease, her personal journey, and how the Foundation is helping progress care and treatment options. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/8wj8u0JEqLU CF is a life-shortening disease that prevents our bodies from clearing mucus. This can lead to lung infections, poor nutrition, lung disease, and a host of unique challenges that can impact every aspect of a person’s life. When it was first discovered, it was considered a fatal pediatric disease. But due to transformative advancements in treatments and high-quality care, the life-expectancy for someone born with CF today is 56. While that number is climbing there is still a long way to go and unfortunately, not all people with CF equally benefit from this progress. KC White was elected chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 2022 after serving on the Board since 2005. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood and is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. When she was diagnosed, she wasn’t expected to live past high school age, but her family refused to accept that fate, which prompted their dedication to the Foundation’s work. Because of recent treatments known as modulators, about 90% of the CF population (including KC) experienced an incredible transformation in their health. With this though, comes navigating unplanned challenges including careers, finances, family, and more. In addition to fueling the research, particularly in genetic therapies, that will lead to transformative treatments for the entire CF population, the CF Foundation works to support the CF community in all aspects of their lives through support programs and fostering connection opportunities. Every May, the cystic fibrosis community comes together for CF Awareness Month to educate the public about the rare disease, share personal stories, and encourage people to get involved and unite behind a shared mission: finding a cure for all people with CF. The CF Foundation is committed to finding a cure and providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives. The Foundation is aggressively funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community. For more information, visit CFF.ORG/CFMONTH About KC White KC White was elected chair of the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation’s Board of Trustees in 2022 after serving on the Board since 2005. Diagnosed with cystic fibrosis at age 3, White has been a committed volunteer and inspiring advocate for the Foundation since childhood, speaking at her first Foundation event when she was only 9 years old. She is the first person with CF to serve as board chair. White received her Master of Applied Positive Psychology from the University of Pennsylvania in 2022 and currently serves as an assistant instructor in the program. She is also the Head Varsity Women’s Lacrosse coach for the Chagrin Falls, Ohio, Tigers. She and her husband, Justin, have one son, Mac. About the Cystic Fibrosis Foundation The Cystic Fibrosis Foundation is a donor-supported nonprofit organization leading the relentless pursuit of a cure for cystic fibrosis. The Foundation is committed to providing all people with CF the opportunity to lead long, fulfilling lives by funding research and drug development, advancing high-quality, specialized care, and partnering with and advocating for the CF community. The Foundation funds more CF research than any other organization, and nearly every CF drug available today was made possible because of Foundation support. The organization supports and accredits a national network of over 130 CF care centers recognized by the National Institutes of Health as a model of care for a chronic disease. Also, the Foundation manages support programs and fosters connection opportunities for the CF community. Based in Bethesda, Md., the Foundation’s impact is made possible by the work of nearly 70 local chapters across the country. Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Introducing the New Ryvid Outset Electric Motorcycle and Extremely Accessible New Pricing

Ryvid, Inc

The Ryvid Outset adds an exciting second model to the lineup of the California-based company, which was founded in 2022 and began deliveries of the first Ryvid Anthem Electric Motorcycles in September 2023. The scrambler-style Outset is a striking option for customers wanting an electric motorcycle for commuting and multi-road adventure. What’s more, because Outset shares a number of key components with Anthem, it opens a unique opportunity for riders to convert one into the other to suit their needs. Offering greater suspension travel to deal with challenging surfaces as well as a longer, narrower motocross-style seat, and fitted with multi-role Dunlop Mutant tires, the Ryvid Outset is perfect for urban exploration and beyond. It shares the Anthem’s rigid folded steel backbone frame, instrument display, removable 4.3kWh battery with integrated charger, 72V air-cooled brushless DC motor, controller, and sealed belt drive. The Outset’s vital statistics include up to 70 miles range* and 75mph+ top speed. As such, riders need a motorcycle license to ride the Outset and Anthem, which offer motorcycle brake positions and a twist throttle. Outset has a 33” seat height but its compliant suspension and narrow cushion means it will comfortably accommodate a range of riders. Further differentiating it from Anthem, Outset gets its own headlight design, mirrors, wider handlebar, seat unit and suspension. The more upright riding position also necessitated repositioning the footpegs forward and adding a longer kickstand. By removing the Anthem’s adjustable seat mechanism and employing less body panels among a raft of changes, Ryvid has been able to offer Outset at $500 less than its flagship Anthem. Weighing just 315 lb, the Outset shares the Anthem’s featherweight architecture and low center of gravity. With its major components positioned at axle level, both the Outset and Anthem exhibit extraordinary handling characteristics, making it extremely easy to change direction at high speed or maneuver at slow speed. Another benefit of electric power is the Ryvid Reverse Gear. At the push of a button when stopped, the rider is able to move the motorcycle backwards at walking speed to extricate it from perhaps a tight parking position or awkward slope. ACCESSIBLE PRICING Originally priced at $8,995, Ryvid has been able to significantly reduce the Anthem price to $6,495 and introduce the Outset at $5,995 thanks to a number of factors. “From Ryvid's inception, our primary goal has been to provide the most accessible light electric vehicle to a broad audience. In order to disrupt the light electric mobility sector, it was essential to not only innovate our products but also our value proposition,” said Dong Tran, Ryvid Founder and CEO. “Creating a new generation of two-wheel electric adopters meant competing effectively on the specification-versus-price ratio against both existing EVs and traditional ICE vehicles. Achieving competitive pricing would be challenging until we could execute several key post-launch initiatives,” he continued. Among those initiatives, a new assembly facility in San Bernardino, CA has been key to the aggressive pricing structure. Coming online in February, its introduction allowed Tran’s targets to be met: 1. Increase production volume to negotiate lower parts costs 2. Expand the product range using the same platform, simplifying both the build process and product configurations 3. Optimize the supply chain to benefit cost and logistics “Our team has focused on reaching these objectives over the past two years,” Tran continued. “Their relentless efforts have reached a milestone with the Ryvid Anthem. Available now, it will sell for $6,495, setting a new benchmark as one of the world's most affordable electric motorcycles, based on specification. We're also excited to announce the launch of orders for our new Outset model priced at $5,995, with shipping scheduled to begin in Summer 2024.” As an additional incentive for the first customers, Outset will be offered with a free Power Controller Upgrade by ASI while supplies last. The same ASI controller will be available as an $800 upgrade for all Anthem and Outset owners, and can be retro-fitted to existing Anthem motorcycles. MODULAR DESIGN In yet another industry first from Ryvid, existing owners of the Anthem Electric will be able to purchase the parts necessary to convert their motorcycle into the new Outset model at a fraction of the price of the complete machine thanks to its shared components. The conversion parts will be available from the Interactive 3D Parts Catalog at ryvid.com, which currently lists every part of the Anthem for service or repair, and will soon be joined by Outset-specific parts. A list of parts and instruction video will be provided to guide Anthem owners when converting their Outset, and vice versa. With the option to customize the Ryvid motorcycle into a totally different machine, creating a distinct new character, owners will be able to build the bike that suits their needs or even their mood. AVAILABLE TO ORDER Riders can visit ryvid.com to order the new $5,995 Outset for Summer delivery in either Sector Red or Vapor Grey, or the $6,495 Anthem for immediate delivery in a choice of six colors. Riders must have a motorcycle license in order to ride both the Anthem and Outset. *Range is currently estimated until the Ryvid Outset is subjected to the Urban Dynamometer Driving Schedule to establish recognized city and highway range figures, which will be shared shortly at ryvid.com.
