World Record Travel by Travelport: 7 Wonders of the World in Less than 7 Days

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3tfcL-uWQy s Travelport, a global technology company that powers travel bookings for hundreds of thousands of travel suppliers worldwide, and Jamie McDonald, a British adventurer better known as “ Adventureman ”, today announced a new world record – the fastest time to visit the new Seven Wonders of the World, achieved in less than seven days. Confirmed by Guinness World Records, the journey was achieved in 6 days, 16 hours, and 14 minutes, using only public transportation. The challenge was set to Adventureman by Travelport in order to put the company’s modern retail platform, Travelport+, to the test, proving that the company’s technology allows its travel agency partners to simply plan, book and manage even the world’s most complex trip. “When we began upgrading our agency partners to Travelport+ in 2021, it was with the intent of making the complicated travel industry easier and faster to navigate,” said Greg Webb, Chief Executive Officer at Travelport. “This epic adventure was the ultimate test for our platform – could we take the world’s most complex trip and make it simple? Could we ensure it was easy to service? Would the platform be agile enough to accommodate whatever unforeseen bumps the trip encountered? Six days, sixteen hours and fourteen minutes later, we had our answer: yes, yes and yes. This trip also proves that, after a few challenging years for the industry, travel is most definitely back and better than ever.” Travelport+ provides global travel agents with modern retail technology that allows them to compare millions of travel routes and select the best one for each individual traveller. Travelbag, a travel agency who has been a longtime partner of Travelport, booked all aspects of Adventureman’s trip via Travelport+, and they were able to search, filter, find, compare and build the most complex itinerary with ease using Smartpoint Cloud. Adventureman had round-the-clock access to a dedicated Travelbag Travel Specialist who, on his request, tracked evolving travel restrictions, identified schedule changes, and made necessary tweaks to his itinerary in real time. He also was able to access Travelport’s Trip Manager feature on the go, in order to add ancillaries and extras (meals, paid seats, etc.) to his itinerary. For travelers who want to visit one, or all, of the seven modern wonders themselves, Travelbag has a range of packages available, allowing travelers to visit all seven wonders of the world themselves (packages starting from £31,000) or visit an individual wonder (packages starting at £1,300 per person). Depending on each traveler’s individual requirements, Travelbag can tailor-make the perfect holiday. “At Travelbag, we’ve planned and booked thousands of trips, and yet, even we had never seen an itinerary this complex before,” said Caroline Foxwell, Sales and Service Leader at Travelbag. “The retailing tools from Travelport+ are so powerful – Smartpoint Cloud made booking and servicing this trip so easy, it practically did the job for us. Travelport+ helps us to build the perfect itinerary for our clients, time and again, even when that client is a globetrotting, world record-setting superhero!” Adventureman began the trip at the Great Wall of China, the world's longest human-made structure, and the world-record clock started ticking the moment he left the first wonder via toboggan. Second, he visited India’s Taj Mahal – the country’s top tourist destination, which is widely considered a symbol of eternal love. From there, he traveled to Jordan and then by bus to the ancient city of Petra, whose carved rose-red sandstone rock facades, tombs, and temples became even more famous from their role in Indiana Jones and The Last Crusade. Departing Jordan, Adventureman flew to Rome to see its legendary Colosseum, envisioning ancient gladiator battles before he made time for a quick pizza pit stop (the only non-airplane food he consumed during the trip). Christ the Redeemer, the world’s largest art deco statue, brought Adventureman to Brazil, where he was equally in awe of the view from its platform as he was of the statue itself. The sixth wonder, Machu Pichu (an Incan citadel nearly 8,000 feet above sea level) was Adventureman’s favorite: he plans to go back one day and bought a stuffed llama toy there to bring back for his daughter. Finally, after only 6 days, 16 hours and 14 minutes, he reached Chichén Itzá, an archeological site that was a hallowed place of ceremony in the Mayan culture. For Adventureman, a main focus of the record-breaking trip was raising funds for his charity, the Superhero Foundation. As a child, Jamie was diagnosed with a rare spinal condition called syringomyelia, and doctors warned his parents that he might lose the ability to walk. Through the help of many doctors, hospitals and his family, his health improved, starting him on his lifelong mission of giving back to sick kids around the world. To kick start fundraising efforts, Travelport has donated $22,856, a dollar for every mile that Jamie, a Pride of Britain winner, traveled for this challenge. The money will be utilized to continue the charity’s mission: helping families in need fund treatments, therapies and equipment that aren’t freely available to them through their traditional or local healthcare support system. “In my previous adventures, I’ve run solo across America (the equivalent of 210 marathons) and have cycled 22,000 kilometers from Thailand to the United Kingdom, and yet, this was certainly my most complex, complicated trip yet,” said Jamie McDonald, better known as Adventureman. “With travel, there are just so many variables – weather, restrictions, delays, customs, traffic, cancellations, you name it. When you’re attempting to set a world record, speed and agility are absolutely key. There was no other partner besides Travelport that could’ve made this all possible.” For the trip to be endorsed by Guinness World Records, Adventureman had to abide by several rules: Use only scheduled public transportation, with licensed taxi rides unable to exceed 50 kilometers Keep a logbook with clearly indexed evidence (receipts, tickets, etc.) supporting each step Obtain receipts and/or tickets everywhere available Use accurate professional equipment (i.e. GPS tracking equipment) Take videos and photos showing the applicant, the location and the date at each site visited Get a written or recorded statement from an official member of staff, local dignitary and/or police officer at each site Understand that the ‘clock’ starts the moment the challenger leaves the first wonder site, and it does not stop for any reason until the challenger sets foot in the final site Protecting the environment is of the utmost importance to both Travelport and Adventureman. The company calculated the carbon emissions from Adventureman’s trip using using the Travel Impact Model, a shared framework for calculating air travel emissions maintained by Google and developed as part of Travalyst, an independent not-for-profit organization of which Travelport is a member. Travalyst is working to unify industry tools and information to bring sustainable travel to the mainstream. As such, the total CO2 emissions of the world record trip was 2,523 kg. Travelport will remove these emissions with high-quality carbon dioxide removal services from Climeworks.

National Association of REALTORS® Housing Market Update: Spring Homebuying Season Shows Steady Demand

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ISQQ6BDbGW0 With the spring buying season in full swing, many Americans are contemplating whether it’s a good time to buy or sell a home. Higher mortgage rates and relentless competition for the few houses on the market are some of the many reasons sellers and buyers should work with an agent who is a REALTOR® to find the right home and negotiate the terms of sale. In fact, according to NAR: Overall, home sales are trying to recover, but they’re heavily influenced by interest rates. Existing-home sales will drop 9.3% this year compared to 2022 but will increase by 15.4% next year. The typical seller receives 3.1 offers on their home, and 33% of homes are selling above list price. NAR expects prices will stabilize, dropping 1.8% this year before improving 2.8% in 2024. Median existing-home prices will mostly stabilize – with the national median existing-home price decreasing by 1.8% in 2023, to around $380,000. Sales in the second half of the year should be notably better than the first half as job gains continue and more favorable mortgage rates are expected. Housing inventory is also expected to remain tight in 2023, with housing starts below historical averages. However, housing starts will increase by 6.9% in 2024. As the market continues to shift, it is important to consult an expert real estate agent who can provide essential guidance to help consumers navigate the homebuying and selling process. In fact, 91% of homebuyers say they would engage their agent again or recommend them to others. Agents who are REALTORS® not only help people achieve the dream of homeownership but also help them create long-term wealth and financial stability for their family. Over the past decade, the median-priced home in the U.S. gained nearly $200,000 in value, making the typical homeowner 40 times wealthier than if they had remained a renter. Additionally, homeowners who benefited from home price appreciation in the last decade saw their debt decrease by 21%. If you’re looking for a REALTOR ® in your area, visit REALTOR.com.

Intelligiants Ltd

The yearlong anticipation and build-up for the 2023 Eurovision Song Contest ended with disappointment for the UK audience with Mae Muller’s placement in the competition. A recent survey by PartyCasino does however indicate that the support for Mae Muller’s performance and “I Wrote a Song” stands strong, after the Grand Final. Muller was recognized as one of the most talented artists among the finalists, alongside Finish artist Käärijä, with the song “Cha Cha Cha”. Käärijä, which finished second in the competition was on forehand a top candidate to be crowned winner of Eurovision 2023 and did in fact win the public votes, only to be beaten by Sweden’s Loreen, who took home the victory with the majority of the jury votes. When asked about their thoughts on the voting system in the Eurovision Grand Final, 45.20% of participants felt that the current system is working well, and 38.70% expressed the need for a simpler voting system. Additionally, the survey revealed that 37.50% of participants preferred only public votes per country, while 27.10% favoured a combination of jury and public votes from participating countries. Opinions on the frequency of the contest left the participants divided: Would the Eurovision Song Contest be more exciting if it was held every second year? 41.10% of the participants felt that the contest should not be held every second year. While 31.50% were unsure, and 27.40% were in favour of the contest taking place every second year and believed that it would make the event more exciting.

BioNTech's mRNA Vaccine Shows Early Potential Against Pancreatic Cancer

MarketJar

One of the most stubborn, deadly cancers is pancreatic cancer. What if individualized mRNA vaccinations could support the immune system's defense? One of the deadliest forms of cancer around, pancreatic cancer is estimated to kill 88% of patients. It’s also one of the most recurrent cancers, with roughly 90% of patients experiencing a relapse within seven to nine months after surgery. Fortunately, a recent study of an mRNA vaccine for pancreatic cancer patients has provided a glimpse of hope. Scientists at Memorial Sloan Kettering (MSK) Cancer Center in New York just published the results of a small study that the group conducted in partnership with Germany’s BioNTech on pancreatic cancer patients over several years. The study used a pancreatic cancer mRNA vaccine tailored to each patient’s tumor to potentially help provoke an immune response. What’s revolutionary about the vaccines is that the German scientists tailored them to the mutated proteins on the surface of cancer cells instead of a mix of tumor and normal cells, which has been the method tried for decades. The cells were extracted from patients’ tumors by researchers at Memorial Sloan and sent to BioNTech, the company that created the highly-effective COVID-19 vaccine alongside Pfizer. Among the participants in the study, half of the patients’ immune systems learned how to recognize and fight off the cancer cells and showed no signs of relapse during the 18 months they were tracked. While promising, personalized mRNA cancer vaccines are still in their infancy and are too costly to be broadly used. Right now, regular cancer screening remains the best method for detecting cancers, however there are currently no screening tests for pancreatic cancer. Fortunately, that could soon change thanks to Mainz Biomed (NASDAQ:MYNZ), a molecular genetics diagnostic company specializing in the early detection of cancer Developing Early Screening Tests for Colon and Pancreatic Cancers On May 10, Mainz Biomed announced a partnership with Microba Life Sciences for the creation of PancAlert in addition to early colon cancer diagnostics. The technical characteristics of a novel pancreatic cancer screening test with DNA and microbiota indications should be enhanced. As part of the agreement, the two companies will conduct a pilot research project utilizing Microba’s proprietary metagenomic sequencing technology and bioinformatic tools in an effort to discover novel microbiome biomarkers to detect pancreatic cancer. The project, which is expected to run until late 2023, will use Microba's Community Profiler (MCP), a proprietary metagenomic platform technology that has proven to be a best-in-class research tool that can produce comprehensive and accurate species profiles of gastrointestinal samples. Mainz Biomed (NASDAQ:MYNZ) is also focused on commercializing its flagship product ColoAlert, a highly efficacious and simple-to-use detection test for colorectal cancer (CRC) that is already available in select international territories. In Q1 2023, the company also launched a corporate health program in Germany by integrating into BGM, a well-established corporate health program that provides services to employees at 48 of the 50 largest companies in Germany. On May 24, Mainz Biomed announced initial results from its colorectal cancer screening campaign with Zöller-Kipper GmbH through its BGM partnership. In April 2023, Zöller-Kipper selected ColoAlert for its corporate health program, which includes over 2,500 employees. According to the results, employees found the online patient portal easy-to-use and convenient and were able to readily access the portal, request a kit and securely receive results within five days. In order to process the ColoAlert PCR test kit, Mainz Biomed has added Eurofins GeLaMed to its network of lab partners. Eurofins GeLaMed is a division of the global laboratory company Eurofins Scientific, which conducts 450 million tests annually and has over 61,000 employees in 61 nations. Germany is home to four of its locations. Advancing Towards FDA Approval to Bring ColoAlert to the US Market Over the last few months, Mainz Biomed has continued to prepare for patient enrollment in its pivotal clinical trial for ColoAlert after successfully completing its pre-submission process with the FDA. ColoAlert will be examined in the FDA-registered trial "ReconAAsense" in order to obtain commercial approval in the United States. The company's business objective is to create scalable distribution across the nation once it receives approval through a cooperative partner program with regional and national laboratory service providers.

The Humane Society of the United States Addresses the Pet Poverty Crisis

YourUpdateTV

Most people are aware of how poverty and structural inequality create challenges and barriers to accessing healthy food, education, jobs, health care and housing and how inflation is only making the crisis worse. Pet resources are no different. Many families are struggling to afford and access veterinary care, food and supplies for their beloved pets. More than 20 million pets live in poverty - three times as many pets live in poverty as enter shelters every year. This is a long overlooked national crisis exacerbated by inflation and the economy. Recently, Kitty Block, President and CEO of the Humane Society of the United States, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the launch of the More Than a Pet campaign and how the organization is addressing the crisis. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/GdaZXktSjNI Over the past 20 years, the Humane Society of the United States has helped half a million pets and their families by providing veterinary care and supplies at no cost, keeping families and pets together in over 50 communities across the U.S. Without these services, families are often forced to make choices about sacrificing their own needs, even food and medications for themselves, to prioritize care for their pet. No family should ever have to make that choice. Since 2002, the Humane Society of United States’ Pets for Life and Rural Area Veterinary Services programs have been helping pet owners across the U.S. by providing food, supplies and services for their cats and dogs at no cost. It is critical to close the gap that exists for people and pets in underserved areas. With the new campaign called “More Than a Pet,” the HSUS is sounding an alarm about this crisis that is only getting worse. The Humane Society of the United States is offering these tips for people to support their communities: Advocate for keeping pets and their people together by signing the HSUS petition to close the pet equity gap. Your voice can make a big impact for all animals. Volunteer with the Humane Society of the United States’ Pets for Life and Rural Area Veterinary Services programs, which increase access to pet care for underserved communities. Donate pet food to your local shelter or pet food pantry. If you know of a neighbor in need, offer to help drive them to a veterinary appointment, foster their pet temporarily or provide a bag of their pet’s favorite food to help close the access to pet care gap. The HSUS is inviting the public to show their support for this campaign by sharing why their animal companion is #MoreThanAPet to them, at humanesociety.org/morethanapet. Campaign partner Smalls is donating a bowl of food for every photo shared, up to $1M, to pets and their families in need.

Shareholder to Address Censorship Policies at Alphabet, Amazon, and Meta

National Legal & Policy Center

Following the exposure by the “Twitter Files” reports that revealed the extent to which malicious government agencies colluded with Big Tech to censor content, a shareholder in three Silicon Valley corporations will present proposals in the coming weeks to address their suppression of speech. National Legal and Policy Center – which owns stock in Amazon, Alphabet (parent of Google and YouTube) and Meta (parent of Facebook) – will sponsor proposals at each company that request transparency about requests they have received from U.S. government officials to “take down” content from their platforms. Amazon’s annual meeting is on Wednesday, May 24; Meta’s is on May 31, and Alphabet’s is on June 2. “As we’ve learned since Elon Musk took over Twitter, there is an epidemic of unconstitutional government censorship of speech in our country, and Big Tech has welcomed the opportunities to be their enforcers,” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project, who will present the proposals at the companies’ respective meetings. “It is vital, as public companies, that Alphabet, Amazon and Meta act in the country’s interest and disclose who in the federal government is making these improper – and most of them probably illegal – requests, and divulge what they have asked to be removed from their platforms.” The Amazon and Meta proposals seek an itemization of the requests the companies have received from federal government. The Alphabet proposal asks for a report about the extent its censorship policies and practices have on the fiduciary health of the company. The text of NLPC’s proposal for a “Risk Audit on Content Censorship” for Alphabet’s 2023 annual meeting follows: RESOLVED: Shareholders request that Alphabet Inc. (“Company”) issue a report at reasonable cost – omitting proprietary or legally privileged information – reviewing the vulnerabilities of its enforcement of Google’s and YouTube’s Terms of Service related to content policies, and assessing the risks posed by content management controversies related to issues such as election interference, freedom of expression, and inequitable application of policies, and how they affect the Company’s finances, operations, and reputation. SUPPORTING STATEMENT: Evidence has accumulated over many years that show Alphabet Inc.’s platforms discriminate against disfavored speech, interfered in elections, and is undeniably prejudiced. Major examples include: In leaked Company emails, employees discussed using “ephemeral experiences” to change users’ views. Back in 2016, the Company’s chief financial officer said, “we will use the great strength and resources and reach we have” to advance Google’s values. Consequentially, senior research psychologist Dr. Robert Epstein found that – based on 1.5 million search experiences his team aggregated in 2020 – that the Company’s manipulations could have shifted up to six million votes to Joe Biden. A study of voter outreach by 2020 political candidates, conducted by North Carolina State University’s Department of Computer Science, found that Google’s Gmail “marked 59.3% more emails from [conservative] candidates as spam compared to the [progressive] candidates.” The Republican National Committee claimed that Gmail sent more than 22 million of its emails to spam during a critical fundraising period in the 2022 election cycle. The Company has incurred a lawsuit and a complaint to the Federal Elections Commission due to the alleged suppression. A Media Research Center analysis of the most tightly contested 2022 U.S. Senate races found that ten of 12 Republican candidates’ campaign websites (83%) appeared far lower (or did not appear at all) on page one of Google’s organic search results, compared to their Senate Democratic Party opponents’ campaign websites. In addition to the above examples, the Company is the target of a credible, major lawsuit by the states of Missouri and Louisiana, based on extensive evidence that the Company violated users’ First Amendment rights. Shareholders need to know whether the Company is engaged in unconstitutional censorship, and whether the Company exercises its content moderation in violation of its Terms of Service, opening the Company to liability claims by victims. Shareholders also need to know whether the Company is failing to disclose these potential liabilities as material risks in its public filings. There is currently no single source providing shareholders the information sought by this resolution. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.
