Snapchat Releases New Teen Safety Measures

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/7Hv0EHNRJ_g The digital world can be a challenge to navigate, and helping keep teens safe online is not just a priority—it’s a necessity. Snapchat is working to make its app even safer—now expanding a range of features to help keep Snapchat a place where people can be comfortable expressing themselves with the friends they know in real life. These extra protections for young people are more than a tech upgrade—they’re part of Snapchat’s ongoing commitment to building tools to help users connect with friends in a safe, secure way. Rachel Hochhauser, Snap’s Head of Safety Operations Outreach, conducted a nationwide media tour on June 25th to discuss these new features. Topics and features she discussed included: · Expanded In-app Warnings Teens will now see a warning message if they receive a chat from someone who’s been blocked or reported by others or is from a region where the teen’s network isn't typically located – signs that the person may be a stranger. · Simplified Location-Sharing Expansion of reminders to make sure Snapchatters are always up to date on which friends they’re sharing their location with on the Snap Map. · Enhanced Friending Protections These protections prevent certain suspicious friend requests from getting to teens in the first place, further reducing teens’ ability to connect with people they may not know in real life. · Blocking Improvements Improvements aim to prevent bullying and repeated harassment by limiting outreach from any new accounts created by someone who’s been blocked.

DOGE’s Rebound Attempt Fails, Amid Raboo’s Dominating Price Action Surpassing Rival Coin Pepe

Total Media

The cryptocurrency market is expanding, but so is the volatility. On one hand we have Dogecoin on a bullish trend, on the other hand we have Pepe on a bearish trend. Raboo, a new AI meme coin has appeared with loads of amazing features. Raboo is still in its presale and has raised over $1.6 million, which is very impressive. Analysts expect the Initial Coin Offering (ICO) to grow 233% during presale and 100x on launch day. Keep reading to find out more. DOGE attempts to validate bullish pattern Dogecoin is presently trading in a bullish wave. But the coin may not be able to maintain the pattern to start meaningful price climb, if investors do not take control. The dynamics around DOGE are being keenly watched by the market. This is because changes in its price could have an impact on the altcoin market as a whole. The distribution of Dogecoin's supply among its holders is showing a noticeable shift, which could lead to additional declines in the meme coin's price that'll be presented on a daily chart. The shift in ownership of DOGE mid- and long-term investors to short-term holders raises questions over the stability of the altcoin price. The amount of DOGE held by short-term holders has increased significantly over the last month. It has increased from 10.5 billion DOGE to 13.4 billion DOGE. This noteworthy expansion emphasizes the growing tendency toward short-term trading activity, which may increase market volatility. Pepe: bulls struggle to recover from downward trend Pepe is down by 27% from its all time high in May this year, however, some traders think the coin could become victorious, especially if Bitcoin’s BTC/USD performance picks up. A recent deal was released by Binance, for cryptocurrency users who want to earn PEPE coins simply by buying and holding PEPE for increased interest rates. Users can get rewards if they send at least $0.01 using Binance Pay for the first time. With this promotion, cryptocurrency users can win up to 100 million PEPE coins. The price of PEPE coins has been dropping lately. PEPE saw a 7.84% decrease in value following the announcement of Binance Pay's offer. Investors are switching to Raboo since the PEPE coin price prediction does not yet present any advantages. Satoshi, a popular crypto analyst, detailed in a tweet the wave patterns he observed on the Pepe chart and predicted a wave of 3 candles. He also suggested that there might be a mirror wave 2 retracement before the green candle happens. The altcoin price still has a chance of going bullish and even breaking it all time high. But only patient enough investors will witness this. Raboo grabs investors attention with 100x potential Raboo ($RABT) is a popular new meme coin that is making waves in the market as an Initial Coin Offering (ICO), demonstrating why ICOs are fantastic avenues for making investments. Raboo's initial coin offering (ICO) offers investors the opportunity to participate in cutting-edge initiatives from the very beginning. By incorporating artificial intelligence to improve user engagement and content creation, Raboo sets itself apart from other meme coins. Raboo stands out in the competitive meme coin market thanks to its AI-driven strategy, which also highlights the company's potential for significant expansion and influence in the cryptocurrency field. By taking part in the Raboo presale, investors will become a part of a ground-breaking initiative that uses artificial intelligence (AI) to reimagine the meme coin genre, providing a special fusion of community, technology, and entertainment. Raboo’s presale is now underway, with tokens available at $0.0048, analysts say $RABT can easily explode 100x by the time it hits the markets this year. Conclusion Between the rise of Dogecoin and Pepe's price, Raboo is standing out as the best crypto to invest in this year. Meme coins are now making noise, becoming the money makers of the crypto market. Raboo is very affordable, giving the opportunity for anyone to join in. Small risk for a great reward. Even though it is yet to launch, Raboo has aimed to be a top 20 coin and it is currently on the right path.

Shedding Light on Cystic Fibrosis

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. 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 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

Machupicchu is the only wonder of the world to have Carbon Neutral certification

Promperu

Today, June 27, in the context of the 17th anniversary of its election as one of the Seven Wonders of the Modern World, the Historic Sanctuary of Machupicchu, in the Cusco region, has again received the certificate as a "Carbon Neutral Destination". This achievement places Peru at the forefront of environmental sustainability and the efforts to combat the effects of climate change. Our world wonder has received this distinction as a result of the commitment of the public and private sectors, who joined forces to achieve this valuable result. On the one hand, the driving group formed by the Municipality of Machupicchu, AJE Group, Inkaterra and Tetra Pak, and the allied group formed by PROMPERÚ, World Xchange, Luz del Sur, Bosques Amazónicos (BAM), Latam and CANATUR. The certification was awarded by Green Initiative, the leading company in climate certification in the tourism sector, which recognizes the fulfillment of its decarbonization goals. To achieve this recognition, the Machupicchu Historic Sanctuary has adopted effective measures to reduce its carbon footprint and offset remaining emissions, implementing sustainable practices such as solid waste management and promoting a circular economy. "At PROMPERÚ, we have the firm purpose of contributing to the sustainable and decentralized development of our country," stated PROMPERÚ's Executive President, Claricia Tirado, at the ceremony held at Manco Cápac Square in Aguas Calientes. "All of us who play a role in the public or private sector have the responsibility to ensure that the economic benefits generated are accompanied by sustainable management," she added. It is important to highlight that the certification took the 2019 carbon emissions results as a baseline and focused on stimulating actions for the reduction, treatment and correct management of the waste generated. It also included raising awareness among residents, businesses and hotels. Along these lines, four processes were implemented to reuse usable waste: the installation of a PET plastic and cardboard compacting plant; a biodiesel plant to process waste oil from restaurants and casinos; an organic waste pyrolyzing plant to generate natural charcoal; and two glass crushing machines to convert bottles into grit for construction and ornamental purposes. This circular economy model allows us to give a new life to usable waste such as plastic, cardboard, Tetra Pak containers and glass, in addition to oil treatment. PROMPERÚ continues to promote and work on responsible and sustainable tourism. We know that it is more than trying to stand out, it is a necessity. Peru Export and Tourism Promotion Board (PROMPERÚ). We are the government agency in charge of the development and implementation of global strategies to position Peru via the promotion of its image, touristic destinations, added value exports and inversions.
