Heat Stroke and Heat-Related Illness Rapidly Rising as Global Temperatures Climb

Centre for Neuro Skills

The number of people exposed to extreme heat has grown exponentially due to climate change, according to the World Health Organization. The New York Times reported that June 2024 was the 13 th consecutive month to break the global heat record. In 2023, 32 million people across California, Texas and Nevada experienced the hottest summer ever recorded in the United States. Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS), a leading provider of traumatic and acquired brain injury rehabilitation services with seven locations in California and Texas, shares essential tips for heat stroke prevention. Taking proactive measures to avoid heat stroke can be the difference between life and death. To avoid heat stroke: Dress in lightweight, loose-fitting clothing Apply sunscreen to avoid sunburn and keep the body cool Drink plenty of water and avoid sugary or alcoholic drinks Limit time outside to when it is cooler or if you must go out when temperatures are high, rest often Avoid leaving children or animals in parked cars, even if the windows are cracked open Monitor loved ones who are at high risk for developing heat stroke Check local news for extreme heat alerts “Of all the heat-related illnesses, heat stroke is the most serious. Heat stroke occurs when the body is no longer able to regulate temperature and cool down,” said Dr. Gary Seale, Regional Director of Clinical Services at CNS. “Body temperatures can rise rapidly to 104 degrees or higher which can cause damage to organs, including the brain, and result in permanent disability. Heat stroke can cause brain swelling, seizures, and lead to chronic inflammation, all of which disrupt brain function.” Children under 4 years old, adults over 65 years old with illnesses or medications that prevent body temperature regulation and people that are clinically classified as obese are all at higher risk of heat stroke. Heat exhaustion can be caused by engaging in strenuous activity, overexposure to hot weather and humidity and wearing excessive clothing that does not allow sweat to evaporate. Symptoms of heat stroke include high body core temperature, flushed skin, dizziness, loss of consciousness for longer than a few seconds, rapid heart rate, difficulty breathing, muscle cramps, seizures, vomiting and diarrhea. If you or a loved one are showing signs of heat stroke, call 911 immediately or transport the person to the hospital. While waiting for help, keep the person in a cool environment, remove unnecessary clothing and apply ice packs or cool water to their skin. ### About Centre for Neuro Skills Centre for Neuro Skills (CNS) is an experienced and respected world leader that provides intensive rehabilitation and medical programs for those recovering from all types of brain injury. CNS covers a full spectrum of advanced acquired and traumatic brain injury rehabilitation care, from residential and assisted living programs to outpatient rehabilitation, day treatment and telehealth services.

The Rising Importance Of Minor Cannabinoids In The Growing Edible Market


By Kyle Anthony, Benzinga With society’s growing acceptance of cannabis consumption, a segment that has risen in popularity is edibles, which are simply products containing cannabinoids that one can eat or drink. While edibles containing cannabinoid compounds, such as THC (tetrahydrocannabinol), which induces a euphoric feeling, or CBD (cannabidiol), which has therapeutic attributes, are familiar to many, edibles containing minor cannabinoids are gaining traction among consumers due to the compound’s unique properties and potential health benefits. As such, the minor cannabinoid-infused edibles market stands at the precipice of potentially remarkable growth, fueled by discernible shifts in consumer behavior. The 2023 Minor Cannabinoid Market Recently, BayMedica, a firm focused on producing and commercializing rare cannabinoids and a subsidiary of InMed Pharmaceuticals (NASDAQ: INM), released a report detailing the growth of the minor cannabinoid market in 2023. The report utilized data from Headset, the largest dataset in the cannabis industry. It focuses on the growth, competition and consumer habits associated with minor cannabinoid-infused edibles in ten regulated cannabis states, which represent 85 million of the 158 million people living in areas where recreational cannabis is legal. The edible market experienced a robust 5.4% revenue surge in 2023, totaling $2.097 billion for the year. This growth was driven partly by innovative developments with minor cannabinoids. Gummies, a subset of the edible product category, exhibited strong sales, while minor cannabinoid-infused edibles witnessed an impressive 47% year-over-year growth, with sales totaling $391 million for the year. While there was a slight decline (i.e., from $14.29 to $12.54) in the average edible item price, the increased demand by consumers, strong growth prospects of the category and reduced input production costs were factors that appealed to cannabinoid brands seeking to gain strategic positioning in the industry. Minor Cannabinoids Explained Minor cannabinoids are naturally occurring compounds found in cannabis plants, distinct from the more well-known cannabinoids like THC and CBD. While THC and CBD dominate in terms of quantity and research focus, minor cannabinoids are changing the cannabinoid landscape due to their holistic capabilities. Minor cannabinoids are found in much smaller quantities than their more abundant counterparts THC and CBD, and are relatively rare in the full spectrum of cannabinoids that are present in a fully mature cannabis plant. Some notable minor cannabinoids include: Cannabichromene (CBC): CBC is recognized as a "booster" for other cannabinoids and is known for its interaction with the body's natural endocannabinoid, anandamide (also known as the bliss molecule). CBC seems to prevent the reabsorption of anandamide, enabling this bliss molecule to remain in the bloodstream for a longer duration. Tetrahydrocannabivarin (THCV): THCV is non-psychoactive and has a chemical structure similar to THC but produces different effects. It may act as an appetite suppressant, making it of interest for weight loss and for reducing unwanted food cravings that are typical with adult-use cannabis products. Additionally, As a CB1 receptor neutral antagonist, it can stimulate focus and energy, opening it up to a wide range of potential applications as an ingredient in both topical and ingestible products. Cannabidivarin (CBDV): CBDV is similar to CBD in its lack of psychoactive effects. Possible use cases for this minor cannabinoid span from the promotion of brain health and immune health to gut health. Cannabinol (CBN): CBN is formed as THC degrades and is mildly psychoactive. It is known for its potential sedative effects, which could be useful for treating insomnia. Additionally, CBN may have antibacterial properties and could aid in pain relief​. All cannabinoids work with the endocannabinoid system (ECS), which was only discovered in the late 1980’s. Every human being has an endocannabinoid system, and every cell type in the body has cannabinoid receptors that work as lock and key, with the over 140 cannabinoids that are known to exist. The ECS regulates and controls many of the body’s most critical functions, and it has been hypothesized that ECS activity may have therapeutic potential in almost all diseases affecting humans. Some of the more powerful cannabinoids, sometimes known as minor or rare cannabinoids, are impractical to extract either because they are represented in such small quantities in the plant or because their separation from other cannabinoids is cost-prohibitive. However, advancements in biosynthesis and synthetic chemistry, such as those utilized by companies like BayMedica, LLC, enable the production of these cannabinoids at commercial scales, paving the way for new therapeutic applications​. Minor Cannabinoids Gaining Momentum In 2023, 24 of the top 50 selling edibles incorporated minor cannabinoids, reflecting a significant shift in market trends. The innovation underpinning this material adoption speaks to the commitment of leading edible brands that are identifying formulations that resonate with a growing and diverse consumer base. This strategic action helped brands counter price compression by establishing a premium price and propelled the growth of minor-infused edible revenue. As detailed in the report, brands incorporating minor cannabinoids in cannabis products strategically command a premium, boasting a 6.3% higher average item price than products with standard THC formulations. This pricing trend reflects market recognition and a willingness to pay more for products enriched with minor cannabinoids, providing an opportunity for differentiation in a crowded market. It also gives credence to the entourage effect, a theory that various cannabis compounds work together to create specific effects and benefits. Using this theory, combining minor cannabinoids with major cannabinoids like THC and CBD allows for more medicinal benefits upon consumption, like pain relief. Cannabis brands incorporating minor cannabinoids also enjoy a remarkable 73% higher average EQ (Equivalent) price compared to THC-only counterparts. The use of EQ pricing is essential for fair product comparison, considering factors like potency or weight and highlighting consumers' tangible willingness to pay more for the inclusion of minor cannabinoids. Finally, given the diverse nature of minor cannabinoids, the products have high customer value and appeal. Tapping into their therapeutic properties empowers consumers to experience various health and wellness benefits, fostering a healthier and more balanced lifestyle. Commercial Adoption Commercialization of minor cannabinoids via edibles has provided insight into which minors are resonating with consumers. As illustrated in the report, CBN has established and maintained sales leadership within the minor cannabinoid landscape. Given its potential sedative effects, it can be hypothesized that consumer demand is being driven by individuals using it as a sleep aid. While CBG continues to exhibit strong year-over-year sales, market analysts project a potential deceleration in the future. Projections suggest that CBG, once the minor cannabinoid leader, may make way for emerging cannabinoids to take the forefront. In contrast to prior years, both CBC and THCV exhibited strong sales in 2023. For CBC, as research on its potential benefits as a mood enhancer gains momentum, its popularity in consumer preferences is likely to fuel sustained growth in sales, positioning it as a key player in the evolving cannabis market. THCV witnessed a substantial 140% year-over-year growth. Its improved affordability due to production enhancement made by lead processors like BayMedica has made THCV more accessible in the edibles market. Furthermore, rising awareness of its physical energy and appetite-suppressing effects, especially when combined with THC variants, positions it as a key player in shaping the evolving landscape of cannabinoid-based products. The Path Forward The edibles market is witnessing a paradigm shift as consumers are redefining their priorities around cannabis consumption, moving away from smoking in favor of the targeted therapeutic effects and consistent experiences offered by edibles. This move means the cannabis product landscape will be transformed in the coming years; as such, edible brands will need to align with the evolving needs of consumers, steering the industry towards a future where minor cannabinoids in edibles take center stage in the pursuit of holistic well-being. As a stakeholder in this industry transformation, BayMedica continues to focus on scaling its operations and expanding its product offerings to meet the growing demand for high-quality cannabinoids in various applications that may be used by a growing customer base.

Say Goodbye To Inconvenient TRT: Meet The Game-Changing Oral Testosterone Treatment - PRIME By MangoRx


By Meg Flippin, Benzinga Many men aim to improve their athletic performance, increase their energy, and sharpen their cognitive skills. Overall, men usually seek to sustain better moods, enhanced sexual health, and vitality. However, for many men over the age of 40, achieving these goals can be challenging due to low testosterone levels. Low testosterone is a condition that impacts millions of men around the globe, with 2.9% of males over 40 and 3.75% of males over 60 being prescribed some form of testosterone replacement therapy (TRT) to improve their libido, energy and mood. That represents a significant portion of the population, with others possibly needing the therapy but not yet using it. The market size for TRT is projected to reach $2.9 billion by 2032, growing at a CAGR of 4.2%. TRT Doesn't Need To Be A Pain In The Butt Currently, available TRT treatments require several sessions of injections, applying messy gels and creams, or having pellets inserted under your skin, all of which can be uncomfortable, embarrassing, inconvenient and quite frankly, an all-out pain in the butt. MangoRx is looking to change the game and give men an alternative method to improve their health without all the discomfort. Mangoceuticals, Inc. (NASDAQ: MGRX), a men’s health and wellness telemedicine company behind the popular erectile dysfunction pill Mango (think “Man-Go”), is shaking things up with a newly FDA-approved Oral Testosterone Replacement Therapy called Prime powered by Kyzatrex®. Prime powered by Kyzatrex® is clinically proven to restore testosterone to healthy levels. Just two oral doses a day with food is as effective and less messy or painful than traditional creams or injections. The company says its lymphatic absorption pathway minimizes liver impact, and its formulation is not affected by dietary or alcohol intake, offering consistent absorption. So you get all of the gains without the pains. Prime is one of the few drugs that can claim to be an oral testosterone replacement therapy. The company is marketing it to males who are on another form of TRT treatment including injectables or pellets and those experiencing common symptoms associated with low testosterone and seeking immediate TRT treatment. And just like taking Prime, the ordering process is painless too. Prime requires a prescription, but obtaining it is straightforward through MangoRx’s easy-to-use telemedicine platform. After completing an online telehealth visit, one of its network of medical providers will review and determine the dosage and strength that is appropriate. Combined with a low price of $224/month, this uncomplicated process appeals to the product’s customer base, which is growing. Additionally, Prime offers significant value to Mangoceuticals through strong customer retention and recurring revenues. Once men begin TRT, they tend to remain on it long-term, if not for life, which may provide consistent and predictable revenue streams for the company. Sales in MangoRx’s first quarter rose by 108%. The Science Speaks For Itself KYZATREX, the active ingredient in Prime, is a clinically tested oral testosterone, demonstrated to be up to 96% effective in restoring testosterone levels, reports MagonRx. In a six-month clinical trial of 139 men with low testosterone, 88% had healthy testosterone levels at day 90. The formula’s design provides a more balanced hormonal profile without the fluctuations typical of injectable therapies. Prime does not contribute to increased blood viscosity—a common issue with testosterone injections—thereby reducing the risk of erythrocytosis and eliminating the need for blood donation as part of treatment management, reports MangoRX. The immediate oral testosterone undecanoate found in Prime offers additional specific benefits. Its convenient administration method eliminates the need for needles, messy creams, and frequent, sometimes painful, trips to the doctor. This non-invasive approach reduces the risk of infections and discomfort associated with injections. The oral formulation is absorbed via the lymphatic system, improving bioavailability and resulting in fewer liver issues compared to other oral testosterone forms. It also provides stable hormone levels, which can lead to consistent testosterone levels with potentially less aromatization to estrogen, which historically, has been a concern of those seeking TRT. The flexible dosing allows for easier adjustments to meet individual needs. Enhanced well-being, muscle mass, and strength, improved bone density, and better libido and sexual function are among the many advantages, the company says. Achieving Overall Vitality Beyond all the medical breakthroughs and innovative delivery systems, Prime checks all the boxes in achieving a better quality of life for men. According to MangoRX, Prime offers a range of benefits including increasing endurance, strength, energy levels, and overall physical capabilities. The TRT also improves mood, reduces mood swings, improves mental clarity, and enhances focus and cognitive performance. On top of all that, Prime's formulation helps regulate and balance crucial hormone levels, offering holistic health benefits. By positively impacting testosterone levels, Prime contributes to a holistic approach to health, vitality, and overall well-being, the company says. Low testosterone is a common condition that can be treated, although the options available today can be uncomfortable. Prime changes that with the first oral treatment. For men looking to step up their game, there's a new player in town who is delivering.

Computer Security (up 27.1% from 868 to 1,103 jobs) emerges as the fastest-growing freelance skill on, based on job postings across more than 2,000 skill categories from April 1 to June 30, 2024. This trend in cybersecurity skills suggests more small-to-medium businesses are turning to freelancers for cyber security support, further backed by Network Administration (up 9.9%, from 1,229 to 1,351) also placing in the top 25 fastest growing jobs on the platform. The data also shows no negative impact on generative AI tools on freelance jobs, evident in the growth of Writing, Business Service, and Legal Skills seen in this quarter’s Fast 50 report, all of which were predicted to decrease with the rise in generative AI. PDF writing (up 26.7%, from 2,533 to 3,210) was the second fastest growing job, followed by third place being Microsoft Word (up 23.9%, from 3,368 to 4,173) projects which are also associated with content writing. Writing job Copy Typing came in at the 16th place, growing 11.6% (from 4,428 to 4,941). Legal jobs, which were expected to have been ‘at threat’ to AI, have also increased (up 12.0% from 1,138 to 1,274), as well as Legal Research (up 10.8% from 917 to 1,016). In addition to the index, ’s annual AI survey, which surveyed more than 4,100 workers globally, investigated AI impact on income and the initial results are shedding light on earnings. When asked how the introduction of AI tools have impacted earnings, more than half of workers (52.5%) reveal they’re earning either the same or more. One fifth (19.2%) say that they’re earning a lot more since generative AI tools were introduced, while only one sixth (17.7%) admit to earning less. “AI is creating more jobs than it takes. While many critics continue to speculate which jobs will be made redundant with AI tools, the data shows that freelance jobs which are labeled as the ‘most at risk to AI disruption’ are in fact growing. The preliminary results from our AI survey also dispel the myth that freelancer are earning less since the introduction of generative AI as more three quarters of workers we surveyed are either earning the same or earning more, with a subset taking advantage of AI and earning a lot more.” said Matt Barrie, Chief Executive at Cybersecurity threats are on the rise across all organizations, but are particularly harmful for small-to-medium sized businesses (SMBs) which have little-to-no security expertise and usually minimal protection. As a result, businesses turned to freelancers for help. In 2Q24, Computer Security jobs ranked as the fastest growing skills (up 27%), indicating there has been an uptick in cyber security threats targeting SMBs. Many of the projects posted throughout the quarter require help with network security, security assessments to identify potential vulnerabilities, and creation of cyber security response play books. General business services are also increasing on the platform as more employers are hiring freelancers to support their small businesses. A clear indication of this is the popularity of Market Research and Telemarketing jobs coming in as the fourth and fifth fastest growing skills in Q2 2024, up by 21.1% (from 1,525 to 1,859) and 19.4% (from 1,177 to 1,405), respectively. Other business related skills grew in Q2 2024, including Sales (up 15.5% from 3.467 to 4,005), Lead Generation (up 12.2% from 1,802 to 2,021) and Business Plans (up 10.9% from 1,197 to 1,328). A sudden increase in General business services means that many of the new businesses, which are usually started at the beginning of the year, now require further assistance in helping grow and scale their business.

Leaders in Real Estate Advocate for Cooperative Approaches to Address Housing Crisis

K3 Holdings

K3 Holdings, a privately held real estate investment firm with extensive holdings throughout the United States is advocating for collaboration as stakeholders consider housing policies to combat homelessness. In a recent article published by The Mortgage Note and a blog post at the K3 Holdings and Alpine LA Properties websites, leaders stressed the need for cooperative approaches to policies that can address housing options, especially for disadvantaged populations. “At K3 Holdings and Alpine LA Properties, we experience firsthand the complex challenges faced by both landlords and tenants in the quest for safe and adequate housing. The ongoing economic turbulence, driven by higher interest rates and inflation, underscores the urgency for cohesive, sensible housing policies. As political leaders seek effective solutions, expanding the perspectives at the table is essential,” stated Nathan Kadisha, a K3 Principal. “Safe and adequate housing is a cornerstone for community stability and prosperity—it is a moral imperative. When families struggle to find stable homes, the repercussions ripple through society, leading to increased homelessness and pressure on social services. This issue affects every facet of our communities, highlighting the critical need for effective policy solutions.” According to Kadisha, effective housing policy should create mutually beneficial outcomes for both landlords and tenants. Unfortunately, policy debates often frame these groups as adversaries, competing for limited resources. This adversarial mindset overlooks the shared goals and common interests that can unite landlords and tenants. While often considered unlikely allies, landlords have a vested interest in advocating for policies that support tenants and promote vibrant, inclusive communities. Advocacy from property companies can help ensure the financial health of investments and fosters environments where tenants can thrive. “As stakeholders continue to seek solutions, policymakers should work collaboratively to address the root causes of housing insecurity while protecting property owners' interests. This approach can solve critical issues facing all parties. Unlike so many political battles, when it comes to affordable housing policies, one group does not have to lose for another to win,” Kadisha continued. One key area for sensible policy action is rent stabilization. Thoughtfully implemented rent stabilization can provide tenants with the stability they need while allowing landlords to earn a fair return. By capping annual rent increases at a rate tied to inflation, we can ensure rental housing remains affordable without imposing undue burdens on property owners. Ensuring fair treatment for tenants and landlords alike helps build stronger, more resilient communities. “As property managers, we bring a unique perspective to the table, balancing tenant needs with our business interests. Lopsided policies can harm the broader community, making it imperative for us to advocate for balanced, unifying housing policies. By working together, we can bridge the gap between stakeholders and pave the way for a more equitable, sustainable housing market.” Addressing the current housing crisis demands bold, visionary leadership from policymakers. By prioritizing policies that promote stability, fairness, and inclusivity, stronger communities where everyone has access to safe, stable, and affordable housing can be built. Property managers are ready to collaborate with policymakers, tenants, and other stakeholders to realize this vision. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a K3 spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or Contact Details K3 Holdings Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357
