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.

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.

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. Battery range may vary and can depend on conditions such as rider weight, speed, temperature, wind, tire pressure, terrain, incline, etc. RYVID OUTSET SPECS Power System: 72V air-cooled, brushless, DC motor, removable 4.3kWh Lithium-Ion battery with integrated 3.3kW charger Power: rated at 10hp (7.5kW), peak power 20hp (14kW) Peak Torque: 53 ft-lb Drivetrain: clutchless Direct Drive transmission, 4.7:1 ratio Continental Synchroforce Carbon drive belt, selectable reverse gear limited to 5mph Charging time: 110V – 0-80% in 2.3hr, 0-100% in 3.25hr. 220V or Level 2 adapter – 0-80% in 1.3hr, 0-100% in 1.85hr Range: up to 70 miles (Eco Mode) Speed: 75+ mph Ride modes: Sport Mode, Eco Mode with regenerative braking, cruise control, Reverse Drive limited to 5mph Frame: lightweight, folded stainless steel, 12 lb Tires: Dunlop Mutant Brakes: hydraulic four-piston front caliper with 320mm rotor, twin-piston rear with 240mm rotor Suspension: inverted front fork, preload and damping adjustable, 6.5” travel.

Birmingham Airport Chaos Highlights Dire Need for Improved Security

MarketJar

Birmingham Airport faced chaos last week as travelers encountered significant delays and some missed flights due to a 'technical issue' at security during peak departure times. 1 Reports of distress emerged, with one individual collapsing amid the turmoil, leading to descriptions of the situation as a "disaster" and an "absolute shambles." The airport acknowledged that the security problem worsened the already busy schedule, severely impacting operations. Travelers took to social media to express frustration and disappointment. One person described queuing for two hours, only to miss their flight as Ryanair departed on time with a half-empty plane. Roger Burton, a local from Redditch, missed his flight despite arriving three hours early, highlighting the challenges faced by elderly passengers. Another passenger noted the sluggish queues, waiting for 80 others trapped in the winding lines. One traveler criticized the airport's handling as "absolute shocking incompetence." Criticism persisted as passengers observed the stark contrast between the crowded security area and the empty post-security zone, pointing out the airport's inability to efficiently handle passenger volume. The spokesperson for Birmingham Airport expressed regret over the inconvenience caused by the technical issue, apologizing for the subpar service. Ongoing construction and the transition to a new security area, contributed to passenger challenges. The chaos at Birmingham Airport closely follows a shocking report from the US Transportation Security Administration. The report reveals at least 300 instances of people bypassing parts of airport security since March 2023, 2 prompting the administration to continue its efforts to bolster security, which includes a $3.8 million contract with AI security company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) for its advanced security solutions that can detect concealed weapons in high-traffic areas like airports, stadiums, and schools. Liberty Defense offers multi-technology security solutions for concealed weapons detection in high-volume foot traffic areas and locations requiring enhanced security, such as airports, stadiums, and schools. The company’s HEXWAVE product, licensed from Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), provides discrete, modular, and scalable protection with layered, stand-off detection capability for metallic and non-metallic weapons. Liberty has successfully deployed HEXWAVE across various market verticals, including aviation, courthouses, national labs, prisons, and government facilities. Liberty Defense Expands HEXWAVE Deployment to a Major Airport in Canada In April 2024, Liberty Defense ’s HEXWAVE™ product received formal equipment authorization approval from Innovation, Science, and Economic Development Canada (ISED). This milestone signifies a significant achievement for Liberty 's ultra-wideband technology. With this certification, the company can deploy HEXWAVE for commercial and government applications across Canada. On May 6, Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (TSXV:SCAN)(OTCQB:LDDFF) announced the shipment of multiple commercial HEXWAVE units to a major airport in Canada. HEXWAVE surpasses legacy security systems by detecting a wide array of materials, including metal and non-metal threats, liquids, powders, plastic explosives, and 3D-printed ghost guns. Bill Frain, CEO of Liberty Defense, explained the technology behind HEXWAVE, which uses millimeter wave, advanced 3D imaging, and AI for comprehensive screening. Frain highlighted HEXWAVE's efficiency in processing high volumes of passengers without requiring them to remove everyday items like wallets. The system's mobility enables the airport to swiftly deploy and relocate HEXWAVE units as needed, both indoors and outdoors. Liberty Defense is also expanding its international base, recently shipping commercial units of its HEXWAVE™ system to Amsterdam in the Netherlands and Subic Bay Airport in the Philippines.

Older Americans Are Facing a Loneliness Crisis:

YourUpdateTV

Media tour conducted to discuss how AmeriCorps Seniors can help by fostering connections and providing purpose. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/dcH7-VsQaYQ Older adults are especially vulnerable to loneliness and social isolation, which can have a serious effect on health, according to a recent report issued by the U.S. Surgeon General. Chronic loneliness (persistent feelings of isolation and/or a lack of companionship) can adversely affect mental, cognitive, and physical health, general well-being and even longevity. However, there are ways to overcome loneliness and volunteering might be the answer. AmeriCorps Seniors is helping older adults form connections in their community, provide purpose and improve their lives through volunteering. After two years of volunteering with AmeriCorps Seniors, 78% of those who reported more than five symptoms of depression at the beginning of the study said that they felt less depressed two years later. 88% of those who first described a lack of companionship said they felt less isolated after two years. AmeriCorps is the federal agency for national service and volunteerism. AmeriCorps Seniors focuses on engaging adults ages 55 and up in service in their local communities. Through three signature programs, R-S-V-P, the Foster Grandparent Program and the Senior Companion Program, AmeriCorps Seniors provides a space for older adults to take charge of this moment in life and use their time in impactful ways. Each year, AmeriCorps Seniors matches more than ONE HUNDRED FORTY THOUSAND Americans with service opportunities. For example, Shelley Brosnan, a volunteer with AmeriCorps Seniors RSVP through Volunteer Fairfax, Fairfax, Va., said, “Giving back is so very important. I’ve been volunteering for most of my adult life. Volunteering allows me to connect with my community and make it a better place. I also love the social aspects and meeting people who share my interests. We have a chance to help others and form new relationships, which has grown my social circle.” RSVP offers flexible scheduling and a diverse mix of opportunities. The Foster Grandparent Program pairs volunteers with children and youth in mentoring and tutoring relationships. Lastly, the Senior Companion Program provides a helping hand to other older adults and those with disabilities. They also support caregivers through respite services.

Flash Wins California Energy Commission $5.8M Grant for EV Charger ‘Innovation Lab’ in Oakland

Flash Parking

The California Energy Commission (CEC) and Flash, a pioneer in parking + charging solutions, today announced Flash secured a $5.8 million grant from CEC for a large-scale electric vehicle (EV) charger demonstration project in Oakland, California. The first-of-its-kind project will deploy at least 446 low-cost Level 2 EV chargers over a two-year period in convenient, high-density, high-visibility installations in a 1.5-mile area around downtown Oakland. With $24 million in funding from California’s Clean Transportation Program, the CEC grant to Flash and other awardees aims to demonstrate replicable and scalable business and technology models to deploy Level 2 charging infrastructure and improve public awareness of and confidence in Level 2 charging access. The project will also include installation of two Battery Energy Storage Systems that will help safeguard EV charger affordability during periods of peak energy demand. “Bay Area residents’ early commitment to the EV transition uniquely positions this community to serve as an ‘Innovation Lab’ for electrification projects in California and nationwide,” said Matt McCaffree, Vice President of Utility Market Development for Flash. “This collaboration with CEC will not only show what’s possible in high-density smart cities like Oakland but also keep the charging gap for early adopters from becoming a confidence gap for the next wave.” Bay Area EV adoption continues to outpace the national average by a factor of three. By installing reliable, affordable, and convenient public chargers, Flash and the CEC aim to close the charging gap and encourage further EV adoption—particularly among downtown residents, for whom dependable public charging is a prerequisite for ownership in lieu of at-home chargers. The success of the project would establish quality public charging as a standard among the practical, convenient, and environmentally-friendly “smart cities” of the future. “For residents living in downtown areas where at-home charging isn't an option, reliable and convenient public charging is key for continued EV adoption,” said CEC’s Lead Commissioner for Transportation Patty Monahan. “The CEC is looking forward to Flash's deployment of hundreds of Level 2 chargers throughout downtown Oakland to be a model of successful public charging.” The project will also generate invaluable data regarding battery capacities, operating costs, replicable price points, and emergency procedures, as well as insights toward stimulating demand and increasing return on investment. This information can then be used to expand and improve upon the Oakland deployment and inform electrification efforts throughout California and beyond.

Listen B*tch Tackles Toxic Bounce Back Culture, Encouraging New Moms to Embrace ‘Mom Puberty’ Instead

Listen B*tch

Canadian wellness brand, Listen B*tch, is launching a campaign that challenges bounce back culture and urges new moms to embrace the physical, psychological, and emotional transformation that comes with motherhood - a process they’re calling ‘Mom Puberty’. The campaign launches with a series of rallying billboards across Toronto alongside a digital gallery that offers an unfiltered view on the postpartum period while encouraging women to dismiss societal pressures to 'bounce back'. The campaign targets bounce back culture which disregards the physical and mental recovery needed postpartum and places unrealistic expectations on women to “snapback” to their former selves. “Embracing and normalizing the change you're experiencing is a powerful way to combat bounce-back culture,” says Listen B*tch Co-Founder, Daniela Angelucci-Rizzi. “Similar to adolescence, becoming a mother is a transitional period which involves physical, hormonal, psychological and emotional changes. That process is known as 'Matrescence’. Or as we like to call it - ‘Mom Puberty”. The campaign aims to redefine the cultural conversation around postpartum experiences by presenting a more realistic view of the joys and hardships that new motherhood presents. As part of this initiative, Listen B*tch is launching an online gallery showcasing unfiltered portraits of postpartum moms. The portraits are accompanied by personal narratives that explore their transformative journey into motherhood - the challenges, triumphs, and the things they think new or expecting moms should know. In addition to the online gallery, Listen B*tch is bringing this campaign to the streets of Toronto with billboards that champion the same message. The billboards can be found at, College & Dovercourt, Queen St West & Augusta Ave, Dundas St West & Rusholme Rd, Queen St West & Noble St, Queen St West & Triller Ave, and College St & Clinton St. On May 6th from 5pm-9pm, the general public will have the opportunity to attend an exhibit of the project at Cry Baby Gallery in Toronto. The brand is also donating copies of their New Mom and Pregnancy Affirmation Card Decks to support groups at Sunnybrook and North York General Hospital, as a way to provide tangible support and encouragement to women navigating the complexities of motherhood. To capture the raw portraits of the Canadian moms, Listen B*tch partnered with Toronto-based photographer and mom, Jorian Charlton whose work has been featured at the Art Gallery of Ontario, the Art Gallery of Mississauga, and the critically acclaimed exhibition - The New Black Vanguard. Listen B*tch is a Canadian, women-owned wellness brand that was co-founded by entrepreneurs Daniela Angelucci-Rizzi & Michelle Osei-Bonsu. The brand, best known for their cheeky deck of affirmation cards, launched two new affirmation card decks in 2024 focusing on expecting moms and new moms. Contact Details Langton PR Inc.
