TRUST SCIENCE PLEDGE CALLS FOR PUBLIC TO ENGAGE IN SCIENTIFIC LITERACY

International Day of Light Steering Committee

After a year in which scientific breakthroughs are helping countries return to a sense of normality, a new pledge offers the general public a path to draw attention to the importance of scientific literacy. The Trust Science pledge, a worldwide campaign to promote support for the scientific process and acknowledge the many benefits of science for society is a first step to recognizing the vital role science plays in improving quality of life and combatting scientific misinformation. Scientific literacy, or the understanding of science, its methodology, observations and theories, starts with appreciating the wonder and advancements of science. One current example is the progress made with vaccines, but the past year has seen many other scientific developments, specifically in light science. These include advances in high-speed communications enabling families to stay connected through videoconferencing, faster access to online media content and breakthroughs in astronomy and planetary exploration such as NASA’s Perseverance Rover landing on Mars in February. With the rise of disinformation, declaring support for the scientific process provides a concrete way to stand up for science and the benefits it brings to society. The pledge, launched in celebration of the UNESCO International Day of Light on 16 May, aims to promote support for the scientific process and to acknowledge the many benefits of science for society. Nobel and Breakthrough laureates, scientific leaders, CEOs and everyday citizens worldwide have signed the pledge, taking a significant step in building scientific literacy and trust in the scientific method. “We all share responsibility for seeking out trustworthy scientific information,” said Dr. Jess Wade, a physicist working in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. “Before sharing information about a scientific claim, we can check the source of claims, research the credibility of the author and double-check the facts with fact-checking organizations.” The pledge complements other strategies for identifying fact from fiction. A first step in achieving scientific literacy is the careful questioning of any statement that is positioned as a scientific fact. Below are three ways the general public can check the validity of something they may have read, heard or seen online as a fact: 1. Embrace initial skepticism and check the source of the claims. 2. Watch out for rhetoric. A credible author will cite facts and sources and the results of scientific research rather than “science” itself. 3. Double-check the facts with fact-checking organizations. The Trust Science campaign is organized by the IEEE Photonics Society, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and The Optical Society (OSA), together with the International Day of Light Steering Committee.

Senior Moments: 6 Ways Our Dogs Remind Us They’re Getting Older

Lintbells

Pets, like people are living longer than ever. Sure, we may notice their handsome grey muzzles, but are there other signs pet owners may be missing? According to the Dog Aging Project, senior dogs experience many of the same health conditions humans do including cognitive and mobility issues. As responsible pet owners it’s important to look out for signs of aging and tend to any subtle changes sooner than later. Our senior dogs who may not have the same skip in their step as they did in their younger years, bring no less joy into our daily lives! Veterinarian Dr. Craig Prior, B.V.Sc., C.V.J., member of YuMOVE veterinary advisory board offers signs for dog owners to look out for that may warrant additional attention. The Tell-TAIL signs to look out for: Posture – Are you noticing any changes in your dog’s body shape such as muscle loss or other changes in the way they walk? Gaining Weight – Is your dog starting to look a bit pudgier? Attitude – Has your dog unexpectedly changed the way they react to you, family or other dogs? Willingness – Is your dog still up for walks, for games, able to get in and out of the car easily and barking at every little thing? Slowing Down – Does it appear that overall energy level has slowed down or getting up and lying down takes longer these days? Jumping - Does your dog hesitate or show signs of struggle when jumping up on the couch, the bed or in and out of the car? Take Action: Seeing the signs of aging doesn’t mean it’s too late. There are steps pet owners can take to help slow the signs of aging and keep the “Senior Moments” at bay, but the earlier addressed, the better. Taking proactive steps to support our four-legged friends can make all the difference. Making small changes in the home to be easier to get around, changing your walking routine to include smaller, more frequent outings, and giving proven supplements to support their joints, all help dogs age gracefully. Pet owners should talk with their veterinarian about changes to their dog’s physical and emotional behavior. Interviews, additional veterinarian advice and supporting documentation available upon request.

The Significant Burden of Migraine Disease

YourUpdateTV

The National Headache Foundation announced findings from a new survey, Preventing Migraine Attacks: A Current Perspective, which characterizes the experiences of people living with migraine and highlights the physical and emotional barriers to preventive treatment. Recently, Jill Dehlin, Chairperson for the National Headache Foundation (NHF) Patient Leadership Council – and someone who suffers from migraines – teamed with YourUpdateTV on a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss this debilitating disease. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/xavJfPIoufU The survey found half (50%) of people with migraine are extremely dissatisfied with their current ability to control their disease and report a range of emotions as a result, including frustration (39%), exhaustion (29%), stress (19%) and anxiety (15%). Despite the variety of options currently available to treat and prevent migraines, most people with migraine still aren’t able to completely control their disease and the negative effects and feelings that come with it. In fact, most responders (84%) currently taking a preventive treatment wish there was a better treatment option. According to Jill Dehlin, “migraine is the second most debilitating disease worldwide and it impacts all facets of a person’s life, causing significant emotional and physical distress. So many people with migraine live in fear every day because they don’t know when an attack will hit…In this survey, many people reported feeling they are chasing an unreachable goal to get their migraine disease under control, highlighting the need for new preventive treatment options, as well as resources to educate and empower them to take control of their disease.” The survey also explored how migraine disproportionately affects women and people of color to better understand their unique experiences and address challenges. For nearly half of women with migraine disease (48%), hormonal changes related to menstruation, menopause or childbirth triggered worsening of their migraine disease. Black and Hispanic people with migraine reported being more likely to feel worry, fear, and anxiety at the thought of taking a preventive treatment. But when asked about treating their disease overall, 77% of Black and 73% of Hispanic responders say they wish they had sought care sooner. For more information, visit: headaches.org About The National Headache Foundation: Founded in 1970, the National Headache Foundation is the oldest and largest foundation for individuals living with migraine disease and headache disorders. The NHF is the premier educational and informational resource for those in the headache community, health care professionals, and the public. The four pillars of the NHF are education, awareness, advocacy, and research. NHF works to inform policymakers, at the national and state levels, and the general public of the need to help patients get access to safe and appropriate care. Through its WorkMigraine program, the NHF reaches out to employers throughout the US to provide education for their staff and support in their efforts to minimize the cost and impact of chronic headaches. The Foundation works to educate and encourage the 40 million Americans with migraine and chronic headaches to become self-advocates with their healthcare practitioners, insurers, employers, and families.

ZIPPZ Introduces Science-Backed, Personalized CBD Products for Sleep and Anxiousness

ZIPPZ

With a majority of adults suffering from lack of sleep and high levels of stress, it’s time to make some changes. Launching today, ZIPPZ Inc. offers personalized CBD therapies rooted in science and developed by a team of leading physicians and clinicians. Designed to address challenges with sleep, stress, and anxiousness, these patent-pending products provide personalized solutions to fit the unique needs of each individual customer. “The medicinal cannabis industry often defaults to ‘one-size-fits-all’ product solutions, especially when it comes to CBD. On my personal journey to reduce stress, I was shocked by the lack of scientifically-formulated products in the category,” stated Scott Eagle, CEO of ZIPPZ. “ZIPPZ recognizes that each customer is unique, so we developed an innovative program to help consumers get matched to the ZIPPZ CBD wellness formulas customized to meet their specific needs.” Taking a science-first approach, ZIPPZ worked with experts in the fields of medicinal cannabis and bio/botanical research to develop products based on a network pharmacology model. ZIPPZ formulas include a distinct blend of 35 natural ingredients - including CBD, CBN, and CBG plus a selection of proven botanicals (e.g. Ashwagandha, Chamomile, Magnolia Bark) - that target not just one, but multiple receptors in the body that help regulate sleep, stress, and anxiousness. As part of their personalization process, ZIPPZ offers 255 different trial pack combinations for consumers to sample to ensure a customized fit. Dr. June Chin, Integrative Cannabis Physician, author, and advisor for ZIPPZ, stated "I have advocated for the understanding of the medical applications of cannabis my entire career, and I’m a strong believer in CBD’s ability to deliver relief. Over the past 20 years, I’ve helped thousands of patients discover customized cannabis solutions and I’m honored to work with the ZIPPZ team to help them create affordable, personalized CBD therapies that utilize cannabinoids and botanicals to deliver targeted relief to those who need it.” The ZIPPZ approach is data-driven and customer-focused. Prior to purchase, consumers take a 5-minute assessment that analyzes a variety of factors including condition, age, lifestyle, and gender. Based on the assessment results, ZIPPZ creates a customized trial pack of up to four formulas to test as well as a personalized report detailing why each product was recommended. Once the customer receives their trial pack, they can sample each product and make a final determination of which formulas worked best for them. In a recent 3rd party market research study, 89% of people completing their trial of ZIPPZ products found at least one of the recommended products met their needs. ZIPPZ Trial Packs start at $29 and include 5 doses of each recommended formula for the customer to try. Once the best products are identified by the consumer, ZIPPZ credits 100% of the Trial Pack cost towards the purchase of their first full-size bottle. Full-size bottles (60 softgels, 30 doses) start at $78. ZIPPZ products are available exclusively online at www.zippz.com To stay informed about everything ZIPPZ, follow them on social at @zippzwellness. ABOUT ZIPPZ: ZIPPZ is a direct-to-consumer, California-based CBD wellness company offering personalized, scientifically-formulated CBD solutions targeting sleep, stress, and anxiousness. Founded by a team of physicians, clinicians, scientists, and technologists, ZIPPZ dismisses the one-size-fits-all approach to CBD therapies. After consumers complete a quick and thorough 5-minute assessment, ZIPPZ uses data science to help match them with personalized solutions. Rooted in nature and activated by science, ZIPPZ combines CBD with over 30 carefully selected botanicals to deliver therapies customized to each individual’s needs. A leader in the revolution of personalized CBD therapies, ZIPPZ offers over 255 combinations of products that provide fast and effective relief.

Airports, Take Notice: 84% of Travelers Want Bio-Security Measures to Protect Against Current & Future Pandemics

WarpUV

TEL AVIV, Israel, May 17, 2021 –– Ever stop to think how many hands touch your luggage from the time you leave home, arrive at the airport, and then reach your travel destination? Curious to know how many virus particles fit on a single pinhead? Are you in the habit of disinfecting your luggage after a trip? According to a Post-COVID-19 Air Travel/Bio-Security survey conducted last week, all respondents said they believe their baggage has passed through a lot of hands – 10 or more. Of those, 17 percent believe more than 20 hands have handled their luggage, whether while using a ride service, the baggage handlers at the airport, or hotel personnel. It's no wonder, then, that when COVID-19 hit, consumers were reluctant to travel. More than 55 percent of the consumers who completed the survey, in fact, said they did not travel by air last year because they feared either contracting the virus or potentially spreading it to others. This, and the actions taken by the airline industry as a result of COVID-19, created a huge blow to air travel. According to the International Air Transport Association (IATA), the pandemic resulted in a 66 percent drop in air travel last year. That’s more than after the September 11, 2001 terrorist attacks, the Severe Acute Respiratory Syndrome (SARS) outbreak of 2003, and the global financial crisis of 2008. As people around the globe are being vaccinated against the Coronavirus and with more awareness about the devastating effects of virus spread, it’s not surprising that more than 84 percent of respondents said they agree with officials at the world’s leading agencies – the Centers for Disease Control (CDC), World Health Organization (WHO), and the Council of European Unions – that another pandemic is inevitable, and it is critical to be prepared. As with x-ray and other measures taken at airports following the 9/11 terrorist attacks, those same respondents agree airports should take bio-security measures to minimize the health and economic impact of future virus spread. Specifically, when asked if they’d feel safer and more likely to travel by air if luggage would be completely and quickly disinfected using ultraviolet (UV) technology at the airport, 78 percent said yes. For some respondents, the COVID-19 crisis is waning because many have received vaccinations against Coronavirus. Still, only 16 percent said they felt additional bio-security measures are unnecessary. “The COVID-19 virus has inflicted devastating health and economic impact on the world, but the call for bio-security at airports is a practical solution that can lessen or even stop the rapid spread of future contagions,” said Amir Fischer, CEO of WarpUV. “Studies show the most effective way to disinfect items like checked luggage and carry-on bags – many of which are soft-sided or have many handles, zippers and uneven surfaces – is with 360-degree ultraviolet (UV) light bio cleansing. The technology exists, it’s proven fast and effective, and is ready to be implemented.” Some additional data from the WarpUV/SurveyMonkey consumer survey include: When asked whether they realized that 100 million virus particles of COVID-19 could fit on the head of a pin, 62 percent said they had not previously heard that fact. 58 percent of respondents said they have never disinfected their own luggage during or after use. Of those, 28 percent said, in light of the virus spread, they will now start doing so. During the height of the pandemic, the ability to travel by air around the world was heavily curtailed due to flight cancellations, as well as airport closures because baggage handlers or passengers had contracted COVID-19. Just last week, Changi Airport in Si ngapore closed due to a report of COVID-19 cases. Although cases of COVID-19 contracted at airports were widely reported, 55 percent of respondents queried in the survey were unaware of this fact. About WarpUV Warp Technologies and its AirFort® devices are the frontline of prevention of the spread of pandemic by luggage and baggage in airports worldwide and serve as a “disinfection firewall” for continents, countries, and regions. The company was formed in 2020 by veteran Israeli entrepreneurs Amir Fischer, Eitan Haimovich, and Gil Luxenbourg. For more information, visit www.warpUV.com.
