SIGMA CORPORATION OF AMERICA

SIGMA Corporation of America, a leading camera and lens manufacturer for both photography and cinema applications, announced today the results of its 4th Annual “Focused on the Fight” Charitable Giving Campaign. The initiative kicked off the new academic school year with a $50,000 contribution to schools selected by participating SIGMA dealers through DonorsChoose, a nonprofit organization dedicated to supporting teachers and students by funding educational projects that go beyond traditional school budgets. While this year’s charitable giving program is expected to cover 90% of U.S. states once fully funded later this month, SIGMA America’s long-term goal is to fund school projects in every state. To date, SIGMA dealers have donated to 68 schools and funded 70 school projects and will continue to grow as more projects are funded. Participating dealers are: Bedford Camera & Video, numerous locations in AK, OK, MO F32 Photo, Knoxville, TN Garland Camera Repair & Photo Imaging, Garland, TX Glazer’s, Seattle, WA Hot Rod Cameras, Burbank, CA Houston Camera Exchange, Houston, TX Nuzira, Scottsdale, AZ Pixel Connection, Avon, OH and Nashville, TN PROCAM, Detroit, MI; Chicago, IL; and Cincinnati, OH SIGMA America is grateful for and dedicated to the Long Island community which has supported its headquarters for nearly 40 years, and to the Los Angeles community that welcomed its Burbank office and showroom in 2018. As part of this charitable giving campaign, SIGMA served a total of 44 schools and funded a total of 46 projects, including the following in the Long Island and Los Angeles communities: East Islip High School, Islip, NY, “Strobe Lighting for Photography Students” project Martin Luther King Junior Elementary, Wyandanch, NY, “Strike a Pose It’s Camera Time” project Sotomayar Arts and Science Magnet School, Los Angeles, CA, “Empowering Student Filmmakers” project Logan Academy of Global Ecology, Los Angeles, CA, “Make a Statement without Saying a Word” project "We strongly believe that Sigma’s ‘picture’ – or actions – must match our words," says Mark Amir-Hamzeh, president of SIGMA America. "Photography, by its creative nature, promotes awareness, compassion, and empathy; it is the heart of all we do as photographers. Nurturing and cultivating the next generation of creatives starts in the school, and it’s often the creative programs that are the first to fall victim to underfunding. We look forward to the impact this initiative will have on our communities now, and in the years to come."

Unwiring.org Takes Bold Steps to Reform Social Media For a Healthier, More Connected Future

Unwiring

Unwiring officially launches to empower individuals in the fight against social media's negative impacts and unethical practices. The organization is led by Saahil Mishra and a diverse team of passionate teens who’ve developed several initiatives to catalyze positive change within social media. “I worry about the impact of social media on my generation. A surge in social isolation, mental health issues, disinformation, and political polarization has challenged our connection on both an interpersonal and societal level,” said Saahil Mishra, founder and social media activist. Mishra also serves as a research assistant at Stanford Social Media Lab and writer for the Poynter Institute’s Media Wise. Earlier this year, Mishra participated in his first TEDx Talk event in San Francisco. Unwiring is educating and empowering young people to drive real, representative change within social media. The team curates timely educational resources including a series of self-produced online videos, curriculum on social media’s inner workings and impacts, and editorial pieces centered around the youth perspective on social media’s harms and possible solutions. Unwiring also is hosting a ReDesign challenge for youth to pose ideas for social media reformation this fall and a youth summit in 2024. United States Surgeon General Dr. Vivek Murthy issued a call for urgent action by policymakers, technology companies, researchers, families, and young people alike to gain a better understanding of the full impact of social media use. Recent research shows that adolescents who spent more than three hours daily on social media faced double the risk of experiencing poor mental health outcomes, such as symptoms of depression and anxiety. “When we advocate for internal platform changes, business model regulations, major culture and paradigm shifts, we can together build a healthier more connected future,” adds Mishra. “We invite teens to join us in this important movement by sharing their stories with us.” Visit unwiring.org and engage on Instagram, YouTube, TikTok, X formerly known as Twitter: @unwiring_org.

Comcast Donates Free WiFi Access to Four Nonprofits in the Twin Cities to Help Increase Digital Opportunities in the Region

Comcast Twin Cities

Comcast today announced the opening of four new Lift Zones in the Twin Cities to provide free WiFi access to families across the area. Furthering the company’s deep and longstanding commitment to advancing equity and opportunity, our new Lift Zones at the International Institute, Every Third Saturday, Al Maa’uun, and GMCC will support digital access and adoption through tech training and career building. The new Lift Zone at International Institute will also receive 250 new laptops and two privacy pods, which will be used for virtual job interviews and telehealth appointments, as needed by clients. Comcast’s Lift Zones program provides free WiFi, powered by Comcast Business, to enable students, seniors, families, and community members to get online and fully participate in the digital economy. With these four new locations, Comcast now offers over 115 Lift Zones throughout the Twin Cities. Comcast’s investments in the four partner organizations will help increase college and career readiness, especially among underserved youth; connect workers to opportunities; provide upskilling for adult learners and those already in the workforce; and close the skills – particularly digital skills – gap. “The tasks of starting a new life in a new country can be overwhelming for refugees and immigrants when they arrive. Digital literacy and lack of reliable internet access can get in the way of applying for work, participating in classes or accessing community services,” said Jane Graupman, Executive Director, International Institute of Minnesota. “Thanks to Comcast and this Lift Zone partnership, we can make this time a little easier for New Americans who contribute so much to our community.” “Helping to close the digital divide and address digital equity remain top priorities here in the Twin Cities,” said Makram El-Amin, Executive Director from Al Maa’uun. “Our city and our region have become even more dependent on broadband to learn, find work and healthcare services and so many other aspects of our daily life. Comcast’s new Lift Zones will create endless opportunities for so many individuals, families, and seniors in our community.” “We’re proud to partner with these four wonderful organizations to launch new Lift Zones to advance digital equity and workforce readiness in our most vulnerable neighborhoods,” said Kalyn Hove, Regional Senior Vice President, Comcast Midwest. “Our continued partnership with our community partners will equip individuals, families and seniors with the tools, skills and resources they need to achieve their goals.” “Helping our communities achieve digital equity is in our DNA at Comcast,” said Broderick Johnson, EVP, Public Policy, and EVP, Digital Equity, Comcast Corporation. “We’re thrilled to partner with the International Institute, Every Third Saturday, Al Maa’uun, and GMCC on our next installation of Lift Zones in the Twin Cities and to work with partners who share our same goals of closing the digital divide.” Today’s announcement is part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to reach millions of people with the tools, resources, and skills needed to succeed in a digital world. Comcast’s Lift Zones complement Internet Essentials, which since 2011, has helped connect more than 10 million low-income people to the Internet at home. In Minnesota, the program has connected more than 416,000 Minnesotans. Comcast also participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides qualifying households with a $30 per month credit, or $75 per month on Tribal lands, toward their Internet and mobile services. New and existing Xfinity Internet or Internet Essentials customers can learn more about the program and sign up by visiting: https://www.xfinity.com/learn/internet-service/acp/free-internet.

Ambow Education’s (NYSE: AMBO) Innovative HybriU AI Digital Education Solution Showcases The Potential Of AI To Transform Education

Ambow Education Holding

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga COVID-19 brought massive changes to the educational system globally. What was once thought to be largely infeasible has now become desirable and commonplace. Completely digital or hybrid learning experiences are now being utilized from K12 to higher education. However, there is limited infrastructure currently in place to support the dilemmas that arise from digital and remote learning. Put simply, companies like Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) seem ill-equipped to handle all the nuances that play a role in online learning. That’s why artificial intelligence (AI) platforms and integrations are so integral to the future of the education sector. Ambow Education Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: AMBO) is leading the charge in integrating AI technology into the educational sector. Their ground-breaking solution, known as HybriU, is an advanced digital education total solution designed to empower students and bridge the gap between academia and industry. With the help of cutting-edge connective technology, HybriU aims to shatter traditional limitations in languages, regions, academia and industry – providing a seamless and immersive learning experience both online and offline. Ambow is a technology-driven educational company that primarily operates in the United States. Their latest offering, the HybriU AI digital education solution, is powered by the groundbreaking OOOK technology and is a patented solution that aims to modernize and enhance educational and workforce training for students. By integrating this powerful technology, Ambow aims to provide students with comprehensive and up-to-date resources, equipping them with the skills needed to thrive in today's rapidly evolving world. It is clear that the pandemic has significantly impacted the education system and teachers as much as students, bringing virtual elements to the classroom. With the need for hybrid education and technology integration, teachers have been burdened with additional responsibilities. Without proper maintenance and understanding, as well as functional platforms, teachers find themselves overwhelmed with technological demands, often taking away from their primary role of teaching. The implementation of AI technology, such as the HybriU digital AI classroom solution, can alleviate these problems. HybriU enables teachers to teach in a natural and easy manner, similar to a traditional classroom setting. The HybriU AI digital classroom is equipped with a student and teacher-tracking camera to ensure that a virtual student is not missing any important information or demonstrations. There are also mics throughout the classroom to pick up student and teacher statements, as well as a podium mic. All of this helps support seamless learning so no student is distracted by poor quality or unable to hear valuable information from a teacher or peers. HybriU’s utilization of OOOK technology enables the creation of personalized content that caters to diverse student populations. A shining example of HybriU's commitment to inclusion is its live subtitle feature and AI-generated voiceover, which allow students to access content in their native language. This feature is a game changer for those in virtual or hybrid learning environments, where language barriers can present significant difficulties. The technology offers benefits beyond inclusivity – students no longer need to dedicate time to taking notes as the AI will take care of that for them. Students can further engage in the learning experience by tagging and commenting on the AI-generated transcript, which is efficiently organized using an AI-powered indexing and tagging system. The tagging system also allows for efficient tracking of students’ progress and areas they may need additional support. These comments provide teachers with real-time feedback that can help with enhancing course materials and teaching style, creating an optimal learning atmosphere for all students. HybriU AI also offers unique features like 3D LED walls, which allow students to view complex models precisely and accurately. This is incredibly useful for disciplines like biology and medicine. Some classrooms also offer screens where students are reflected so the in-person teacher does not miss out on valuable interaction. For students who are being taught by remote teachers, there are O-Screens that offer lifelike, full-body views of the teacher. The online education sector is projected to grow from its 2022 value of $192 billion to $602 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2% over 2022-2030. The advantages offered by HybriU which are specifically designed to address this new education paradigm of hybrid learning potentially place Ambow Education in the right place at the right time to be a driving force in the industry and propel online learning experiences into the future. To sign up for a free demo of HybriU, visit http://www.hybriU.com or www.ambow.com. Ambow Education Holding Ltd. is a leading cross-border career educational and technology service provider, offering high-quality, individualized services and products.

New Army campaign inspires young Americans to take the first step to “Be All You Can Be”

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Zr1Os51K6G8 On August 21, the U.S. Army unveiled “First Steps,” a new campaign that shows young Americans how they can start their journey to service. The campaign is built on the premise that American youth don’t need to have everything figured out from the beginning to make an impact. Taking a chance is the first step to achieving your goals. The campaign is a continuation of the “Be All You Can Be” brand refresh, which launched in March 2023. The new campaign offers an up-close, personal, and unfiltered look at Soldiers embarking on some of the most powerful experiences in their early Army journeys, including arriving at basic training, receiving their first patch, and hitting their first target from a battle tank. Maj. Sam Winkler is a shining example of where your first steps can take you in the U.S. Army. After immigrating to the United States from Nepal, she took her own first step: enlisting in the Army at 17 years old. Now, as a Soldier and a mom, she has used her passion for family to help lead a first grassroots effort transforming the way the U.S. Army supports parents in the force. Her efforts, in collaboration with other Army parents, led to the development of the Army’s Directive 2022-06: Parenthood, Pregnancy, and Postpartum. Twelve policy changes address key issues like family care planning, fertility treatments, paid parental leave, support in returning to work, and more. On August 30, Maj. Winkler conducted a nationwide media tour discussing the campaign and the limitless opportunities in the Army for youth to find their purpose, explore their passions, build connections, and join a community. Topics Maj. Winkler discussed included: The Army’s new “First Steps” campaign Her path to Army service and the many firsts along the way Her work to improve Army life for parents through the Directive on Parenthood, Pregnancy, and Postpartum The limitless possibilities and benefits available to Army Soldiers and their families To learn more, visit: https://www.goarmy.com/ Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com
