Breaking News: WriteMyEssays And WriteMyPapers Merge. Learn More Here!

Halvorson Media Group

Recently, WriteMyEssays And WriteMyPapers signed a merger agreement. Find out what to expect from the changes, whether they will affect customers, and what new features are planned to be introduced. New York, May 28, 2021 — A few days ago, an academic writing company WriteMyEssays announced the acquisition of WriteMyPapers. This decision has been discussed for several months, and finally, there was official confirmation of the merger. Due to the inability to compete with other academic services, the WriteMyPapers brand decided to leave the market. In the past few months, the site has seen a surge in orders, and the staff has been unable to keep up with the influx. The departure of the company would have suffered great losses and the loss of valuable personnel. Thus, the decision to merge was the only correct one in this situation. The management bodies have already checked and approved the terms and conditions of the upcoming merger. What to Expect from The Merger? A merger is a complex business solution that takes time to set up internal processes. Of course, the company's management is going to consolidate high-quality academic writing in the industry and enter the international market. However, no one excludes the occurrence of difficulties, but first things first. At the moment, key stakeholders of both companies discussed several business benefits which can be expected in the near term. They are obvious, but are of great benefit to the company: Increasing the staff of the company. The staff of WriteMyPapers was more than 300 people. All writers pass under the control of the new owner. Thus, it means that the service will be able to process more orders and get more urgent assignments. Increasing the audience. Those customers who previously applied to WriteMyPapers are likely to start ordering essays and other assignments from a new company. Many students have been working with the same authors for several years, and they will be able to continue doing this under a new brand. Increasing monthly turnover. The more orders, the more income. This is a simple yet complex business rule. If the quality of the work performed remains at the same high level or becomes higher, the company will be able to increase income by 2-3 times. Moreover, this is a very significant indicator in the college writing industry. In the long term, the company expects the following positive changes: Entering the international market. In connection with scaling, it is planned to introduce new working languages. The managing department has ideas for covering European countries, China, and India. This will expand the audience by 5-6 times in the long run. Building a multi-level support system. Due to the increase in the audience, support representatives will need to be divided into several categories depending on the purpose: support for resolving payment issues, support for placing orders, support for submitting changes to orders, etc. Development of services in narrow areas. In a rapidly evolving environment, it is necessary to follow education trends. That is a real challenge to find specialists in AI engineering or bioinformatics with academic writing or teaching skills. However, this must be taken into account in order to be at the top of the best services. What Do The Experts Say? “The decision to merge was nothing short of a bold one for us. We expect to see results in two months. However, despite the encouraging results in the future, we understand that at first, the team may experience difficulties. Talks about a merger started early this year and we've more or less solidified the base to weather this challenging but promising time.” Harry Evans, WriteMyEssays Vice President “Our department will be the most heavily loaded, especially at the very start. We have developed an order distribution system that should help us not only cope with the number of incoming orders but also understand our strengths and weaknesses to improve the process. The scaling steps will be introduced smoothly, and we know we can adjust to new circumstances.” Emma Walker, Order Distribution Manager “We are pleased with the new changes and are ready to scale and introduce new services. Thanks to long-term planning and quick reaction to possible strategic changes, our company is moving into a higher orbit. We can call ourselves a company providing educational assistance services.” Caleb Ellington, Senior Manager About WriteMyEssays WriteMyEssays is an academic writing company that has been on the market for over 15 years. The company operates in the field of educational services, namely in writing papers of various formats for high school, college, and university students. The emphasis on "academic" demonstrates high standards of performance. At the moment, the company provides assistance in the following areas: academic writing, proofreading & editing, and problem-solving. These three services fully cover the needs of a broad student audience. The team assists with handling assignments of different levels: High School, Undergraduate, Bachelor, Master, and Professional. The company works in various fields: Mathematics, Literature, Chemistry, Architecture, Pharmacology, Law, and more than 30 other areas of study. The support service has every opportunity to select a performer with the appropriate education and academic writing skills. The list of services includes not only writing essays, but also making presentations, creating graphs and tables, writing speeches, typing, rewriting, performing mathematical calculations, helping with writing dissertations, conducting chemical, historical, mathematical, and literary analyzes, and much more. WriteMyEssays is often the choice of students due to the loyal pricing policy. Thanks to successful management and logistics, prices for services are kept below average. It allows students with a limited budget to place orders on the site. The company also often provides discounts and loyalty programs. With over 7,000 finished assignments, WriteMyEssays is one of the leaders in the professional student assistance industry. Most likely, new changes will lead this service to new achievements and the introduction of new services that meet the passage of time. On a Final Note The goal of the WriteMyEssays company is to remain competitive, gradually expanding the list of services, introducing new payment methods, and taking other equally important steps to be on top. The field of academic education is entering challenging times. It may not yet be obvious, but companies like WriteMyEssays will take on an inflated amount of workload to save education as a basic social sphere from a great collapse Contact Details Halvorson Media Group Edward +1 877-422-8205 edward@halvorsonmediagroup.com Company Website https://halvorsonmediagroup.com/

Fitch upgrades OYO's rating to 'positive' from 'stable'

OYO

Ratings agency Fitch has upgraded its outlook on global travel tech company OYO’s (Oravel Stays Limited) long-term foreign and local currency issuer default ratings (IDRs) to positive from stable, while affirming the ratings at ‘B-’. Fitch has also affirmed the rating on the USD 660 million senior secured term loan facility due 2026, issued by OYO's fully owned subsidiary, Oravel Stays Singapore Pte Limited, at 'B-'. The Recovery Rating is 'RR4'. The Fitch report further states that the term loan facility is unconditionally and irrevocably guaranteed by OYO and certain subsidiaries within the group and the guarantee covers 121% of the outstanding principal or up to USD 800 million, and Fitch considers this guarantee full and worthy. Fitch explains the rating change, “We expect OYO to deliver positive EBITDA and CFO in FY24, ahead of Fitch’s earlier forecast, led by a greater reduction in operating costs than we expected. We expect significant growth in its EBITDA in FY24, led by an ongoing demand recovery in the travel and tourism industry, the company’s stable gross margins, and reduction in operating costs. This follows positive EBITDA in every quarter of FY23, which is the first year of profits since OYO’s incorporation in 2012. The rating also reflects OYO’s adequate liquidity.” The rating by Fitch reflects OYO’s asset-light business model that benefits from minimal capex needs, largely exclusive distribution rights, pricing control over storefront inventory, fixed revenue share and strong long-term growth potential. Fitch expects the cost-reduction measures that OYO undertook in recent years to support its improving profitability in FY24. The report states that such reductions will not affect growth, as OYO has increased its business development staff to prioritise storefront additions. Fitch also expects travel and tourism industry conditions to continue to improve in OYO’s key markets in FY24, following a strong recovery in FY23 from pent-up demand for leisure travel after the easing of Covid-19 restrictions. The Indian hotel industry saw improving occupancy rates with a 73% increase in the number of air-traffic passengers in FY23. Foreign tourist arrivals also increased to 6.2 million in 2022 from 1.5 million in 2021, albeit still well below pre-pandemic levels. “OYO increased the number of storefronts and GBV per storefront in its European homes business in FY23 as leisure travel recovered, despite the cost-of-living crisis and reduced disposable incomes in the region. We expect this recovery to continue over the upcoming summer holiday and be further supported by a recovery in business travel, which initially picked up at a slower pace.” said Fitch. The rating agency estimates that OYO's unrestricted cash at FYE23 is sufficient to fund it’s the Fitch-estimated free cash flow deficit of around USD 7 million and annual debt repayment of around USD 6 million in FY24. Recently, global ratings agency Moody’s (Moody’s Investors Service) announced that it expects OYO to remain EBITDA positive for FY24 and its overall outlook to remain stable. Moody’s in its report said that OYO will generate around $50 million-$55 million EBITDA, after shared based payment expenses in fiscal 2024, supported by a strong demand recovery in the hospitality business, increase in the number of storefronts on OYO's platform, and cost optimisations. In March, OYO refiled its Draft Red Herring Prospectus (DRHP) with the stock market regulator SEBI under the recently introduced Confidential pre-filing route. A source close to the company said that the company will be “fine-tuning the issue size, basis the market conditions, to between $400 to 600 million, all of which will now be a primary issuance, to repay most of its debt.” The Confidential pre-filing route option was allowed by SEBI in November 2022 as part of bringing in progressive and globally popular practices. The company recently announced that it plans to double the number of premium hotels such as Townhouse, Collection O and Capital O in India in 2023 by adding approximately 1800 high street, upmarket hotels. The company’s UK business plans to add more than 50 properties to its UK portfolio in 2023 with a focus on cities such as London and Birmingham. OYO already has more than 150 hotels across the UK. The company is also planning to add over 100 hotels in the US in 2023. Contact Details Anupriya +91 97911 63065 anupriya.d@oyorooms.com Company Website https://www.oyorooms.com/

Being Overweight or Obese Increases Risk of Developing Colorectal Cancer

MarketJar

Maintaining a healthy weight is important for general health, but growing evidence reveals obesity’s role in the development of chronic illnesses and even deadly cancers. Obesity is one of the most frequent chronic illnesses in the United States, with one out of every three adults in the nation being overweight. Excess weight has been linked to several health risks including diabetes, high blood pressure, heart disease and more recently, colorectal cancer. Colorectal cancer is very common, with an estimated 150,000 new instances of colon and rectal cancer (CRC) per year, but the number of cases in young adults have been increasing rapidly over the last 20 years and excess weight may be to blame. According to a new study published in JAMA Network OpenTrusted Source, being overweight or obese during early and middle adulthood increases the risk of developing this common and potentially deadly cancer. The study comprised 135,161 people ranging in age from 55 to 74 and the findings suggest a strong relationship between high body fat, even in young adulthood, and the development of colon cancer later in life. According to renowned physician and scientist Dr. William Li, excess body fat, particularly visceral fat around the organs can cause chronic inflammation, which is a known trigger for cancer development. The findings from the study highlight the importance of prevention and also signal the need for colon cancer screening. The US Preventive Services Task Force advises screening with stool DNA tests once every three years starting at age 45, however some individuals might want to consider testing earlier. In the US, 16.6 million colonoscopies are carried out annually but around one-third of Americans between the ages of 50 and 75 have ever undergone a colon cancer screening. Fortunately, molecular genetics cancer diagnostic company Mainz Biomed (NASDAQ:MYNZ) is working to commercialize its highly effective and simple-to-use at-home colorectal cancer (CRC) detection test ColoAlert in the US. ColoAlert, which is already available in select European markets, is moving swiftly towards FDA approval following the company’s successful completion of the pre-submission process for its PMA pivotal clinical trial. ColoAlert will be tested in the FDA-registered trial "ReconAAsense" to gain commercial approval in the United States. Once approved through a cooperative partner program with regional and national laboratory service providers, the company's business goal is to achieve scalable distribution across the country. Expanding the Reach of Its Early Detection Tests Across Europe Mainz Biomed has also been working to expand the presence of its flagship cancer screening test across European markets by partnering with third-party laboratories for test kit processing instead of the traditional method of operating a single facility. On May 31, the company announced that it has expanded its commercial footprint into Poland through a partnership with TESTDNA, a leading independent laboratory in Poland. According to Digestive Cancers Europe, Poland has a particularly high need for dependable non-invasive screening methods, as only around 20% of patients opt for colonoscopy. With 19,000 new cases annually and approximately 12,000 colorectal cancer-related deaths, the necessity for effective at-home screening tests with early-stage detection is evident. The addressable market in Poland alone accounts for an estimated 21 million patients. In the coming weeks, the two companies will work together to prepare and launch co-marketing activities to ensure successful commercialization in the Polish market. Mainz Biomed has also expanded its reach within corporations following the launch of its corporate health program in Germany through a merger with BGM, a well-established corporate health program that serves employees at 48 of Germany's 50 largest enterprises. On May 24, Mainz Biomed reported preliminary results from its colorectal cancer screening campaign with Zöller-Kipper GmbH via its BGM cooperation. Zöller-Kipper chose ColoAlert for their corporate health program, which comprises approximately 2,500 employees, in April 2023. Employees found the online patient portal to be straightforward to use and comfortable, and they were able to easily access the portal, obtain a kit, and securely receive findings within five days, according to the results.

Basketball Dreams

Eleazar (Ele) Kauderer, CEO of Tiger Marketing and Branding Agency (“Tiger”), and Dalmorlie Williamson, Assistant Director of the Rising Stars Youth Organization (“Rising Stars”), together, are proud to announce Kauderer’s sponsorship of “Team USA Select”, an Amateur Athletic Union (“AAU”) traveling basketball all-star team drawn, in part, from Williamson’s Rising Stars. Kauderer’s sponsorship will help to fund Team USA Select’s pursuit of greatness at the iconic “Quai 54” streetball tournament under the shadow of the Eiffel Tower in Paris, France, this summer. Quai 54, known globally as the world’s biggest streetball tournament championship event, will take place in early July.

Kauderer commented on his sponsorship of the team in 2023: “These kids mean the world to me. Malie [Williamson] and I have been involved for long enough to see the longitudinal data—to see lives change and doorways open—and to see the results of that progress years later. I don’t think anything I have been involved with over the years has been such a source of pride and joy as this program has, and I am truly grateful to have the opportunity to make a fresh difference in 2023.” Kauderer continues, “In conjunction with my Not for Profit Organization Youth Empowerment & Success I’ve created a Go Fund Me Link for anyone who wants to be a part of making these boys Dreams come to reality as well as give global visibility to those who want to be a part of something so great! Because no matter what you make or what you do, if you don’t look to help those around you get better, stronger, more successful and achieve their dreams, you’ve not even made a blip in the time you’ve spent living your own life.” https://gofund.me/d0f6250d Ele Kauderer, a New York businessman, has been involved in international business, investment banking, marketing, branding, and public relations for nearly 25 years. He implemented television and radio marketing campaigns, production of commercials, national product launches, public relations for both private and public companies as well as political campaigns.

Dalmorlie Williamson has over 15 years of experience in youth basketball. During that time, he has worked as a high school basketball coach, an assistant director and coach for the D1 Stars AAU program, and a leader in the Rising Stars Youth organization. “Malie is on a mission in life to remove false ceilings for serious talent—to see driven young athletes leverage their God-given skills and their sense of determination to open up opportunities like a top-tier college education or a path into the pro sports marketplace,” added Kauderer. “Not only does he have a gift for spotting the genuine article—next-level talent—but he knows what it takes to translate that kind of rare gift into a real opportunity in the Show. He has special insight into these kids, and a lot of people know it. But he also has a heart of gold.

Comcast Washington

Today, Comcast announced it will award grant packages to 100 small businesses in Multnomah County including those owned by women, people of color, and individuals committed to uplifting their local communities. Expanding on the foundational work by Multnomah County to provide relief funds to small businesses impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic, Comcast will award grant packages valued at $40,000 to 100 small business owners. The grant package will include business consultation services, educational resources, a monetary grant, creative production, a media schedule, and a technology makeover. From June 1-30, eligible small businesses in Multnomah County can apply for the Comcast RISE program at www.ComcastRISE.com. Winners will be notified in August. Local small businesses seeking more information about the Comcast RISE grants, may learn more about the fund, eligibility requirements, and how to apply by watching this video. Multnomah County is one of five metropolitan areas selected to award the grant package to 100 local businesses, including Baltimore, Detroit, Memphis, and Philadelphia. These recipients join the 13,000 entrepreneurs nationwide who have been selected as Comcast RISE awardees since the program launch in late 2020. “Among the many things we all love about the Portland Metro area is our vibrant small businesses and Comcast is committed to supporting them,” said Marion Haynes, vice president of external affairs, Comcast Pacific Northwest Region. “Unprecedented challenges are facing these small businesses, especially those owned by women and people of color, which are at greater risk in today’s uncertain economy with inflation and rising costs. That is why we encourage small business owners to apply for the Comcast RISE program. The grant may cover any need to help your business survive and thrive.” “Beyond the many things that make Portland so special is our small business community,” said Andrew Hoan, president and CEO of the Portland Business Alliance. “Comcast RISE is a great opportunity for small business owners who want to invest in themselves and create a more dynamic city. We're proud to partner with Comcast to promote this program and encourage all small businesses in Multnomah County to apply.” "Hacienda supports entrepreneurs year-round with technical assistance and connection to resources as they work to start or grow their businesses,” said Ernesto Fonseca, CEO of Hacienda CDC. “We are thrilled to partner with Comcast to help spread the word about Comcast RISE and make sure small businesses know about this opportunity and submit an application." “APANO is excited to participate in this year’s RISE! We would like to express our thanks to Comcast for investing in small businesses and entrepreneurs,” said Duncan Hwang, Community Development Director at APANO. “These small businesses—especially those owned and run by Asian American, Native Hawaiian, and Pacific Islander Oregonians—are the backbone of our community. Over the last few years, too many have been impacted by both the pandemic and hate and bias incidents. This opportunity will support them in coming back stronger than ever.” Comcast RISE stands for Representation, Investment, Strength and Empowerment. Comcast RISE was created in November 2020 to help small businesses hardest hit by COVID-19, from bakeries and barber shops to childcare centers and cleaning services, the grants needed to survive and recover. The program will evolve from helping businesses survive the pandemic, to helping businesses and their communities thrive with a focus on economic growth. All eligible applicants will receive a monthly Comcast RISE newsletter with educational content, and all small business owners can visit the Comcast RISE destination on the X1 platform featuring aggregated small business news, tips, insights, and more. Just say “Comcast RISE” into the X1 voice remote. Comcast RISE is part of Project UP, the company’s comprehensive initiative to advance digital equity and help build a future of unlimited possibilities.

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/CqMCndmTOfg Would it surprise you to know that hearing loss in the U.S. is expected to double to 73M by 2060?* Hearing loss can prevent a life well-lived and cause some to miss out on meaningful connections. Even so, it takes people seven years from the time they suspect they might have hearing loss to the time they seek treatment. But no one should ever feel that hearing loss is something to be ashamed of. Proactive health habits such as hearing care are so important to living a long and healthy life. Hollywood legend and HearingLife spokesperson, William Shatner, has lived a full, adventurous life, from traveling to space to acting on the big screen. But what many might not realize is he is also living with tinnitus! William Shatner has teamed up with the leading hearing care company to spread awareness about the importance of hearing care in the US. To stress the importance of proper hearing care, HearingLife is currently running its “Love Your Ears” give back campaign and is giving away free hearing aids to people in financial need who are struggling with hearing loss. For the opportunity to receive free hearing aids through “Love Your Ears,” anyone in the U.S. can submit their personal story to www.hearinglife.com/giveback, or nominate a loved one, explaining how receiving hearing aids could make a difference in the quality of their life. HearingLife offers brands with some of the highest rated technology on the market, including several award-winning options. Hearing aid technology has come such a long way to cater to the unique treatment needs of the individual. With so many options out there, it’s crucial for people to seek out professional care from an audiologist or licensed hearing aid specialist. HearingLife offers personalized care with a focus on the individual’s unique needs so that we can provide people with the most optimal solution for their lifestyle. HearingLife.com has plenty of resources available. For more information on the give back program to submit your story, go to www.hearinglife.com/giveback. *Source: https://jamanetwork.com/journals/jamaotolaryngology/article-abstract/2606784 Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com
