YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/yQwa2WRw59E The holidays are a time to share special moments with loved ones and celebrate those relationships, but if you have hearing loss and are struggling to hear or follow conversations, you may feel disconnected from family and friends this holiday season. Often, feelings of embarrassment or frustration can cause individuals with hearing loss to stop socializing or participating in events or activities that they used to enjoy. According to a HearingLife and Harris Poll survey, 72% of people with hearing loss wish their hearing was better to enjoy holiday and special gatherings*. HearingLife is celebrating the holiday season with the “Hear the Magic. Love Your Ears” holiday campaign accompanied by the second annual “Magic of Giving Back” program aimed to help those with hearing loss gain back the joyful sounds of the holiday season. "We understand the challenges that come with hearing loss, such as difficulty following conversations and feeling embarrassed," said Dr. Leslie Soiles, Chief Audiologist, HearingLife. "At HearingLife, we believe everyone deserves to hear their favorite sounds of the season and we want to help those in need regain their confidence and enjoy connecting with loved ones during the holiday season." For the opportunity to receive free hearing aids through the “Magic of Giving Back,” people can submit either a personal story, or a story on behalf of a loved one, explaining why they are a candidate for the gift of hearing.

The Market Votes: Amesite Releases Study of E-Learning Success For Global Company

Amesite Inc.

Learn More about Amesite Inc. by gaining access to the latest research report The results are in for a study on Amesite Inc.’s (NASDAQ: AMST) eLearning platform, and it looks like a resounding success. Amesite, which harnesses cutting-edge artificial intelligence (AI) to deliver customizable courses through its white-label platform, completed a case study in October on EWIE Group of Companies (EGC), a large company that used Amesite’s technology to upskill its global workforce. Companies everywhere are realizing the new challenges of training and upskilling their employees in a remote economy. But many are held back by old-fashioned learning systems that are no longer fit for that purpose. As companies look for modern online platforms, the corporate eLearning market has grown to $117 billion. EGC’s search for an eLearning solution led it to partner with Amesite for its integrated, easy-to-access learning platform. As a commodity-management services company, EGC sought a solution for both retaining and upskilling its employees. With the outcome of the collaboration published, Amesite feels like it’s gotten an A+ on a difficult test. Results Of Study May Indicate Strong Performance When EGC approached Amesite, it faced several challenges. It needed learning tools that ensured employee engagement across the company, but it struggled to surmount this problem without integration of its educational courses across its platforms. With nearly 1,000 employees at over 240 factories around the globe, EGC needed a scalable solution for upskilling their employees that would be accessible to all. Amesite provided a solution with its customized Learning Community Environment ® (LCE SM ), rolling out access to 53 courses for EGC employees in just four days. Before the end of the first quarter, employees were scoring 91% on the learned material that had a target pass score for passing of 70%. While Amesite operates in a similar space to Coursera Inc. (NYSE: COUR) and Powerschool Holdings Inc. (NYSE: PWSC), it sees its platform as a more thoroughly accessible option. Its white-label system is customizable for a company or educational institution’s specific needs, while its AI provides updated information for learners, within an infrastructure that is intuitive and easy to navigate. “Having people with the most advanced skills is a huge competitive advantage for us,” EWIE Group of Companies President Jay Mullick said. “Amesite is at the center of all our business process training at EGC. We have appreciated the support of their team throughout the relationship. Using Amesite’s global upskilling technology platform enables our people to gain the know-how to meet our most demanding customers’ needs quickly and efficiently.” To learn more about Amesite, visit its website. Amesite Inc., an artificial intelligence driven platform and course designer, provides online products in the United States. The company uses machine learning to offer a mass customized experience to learners. Its customers include businesses, universities and colleges, K-12 schools, and non-profit organizations.

The NIH Has Given BioRestorative Therapies A Stamp Of Approval

BioRestorative Therapies, Inc.

BioRestorative Therapies Inc. (NASDAQ: BRTX) is working on products that may be solutions to conditions that affect millions of Americans with lower back pain and diabetes. BioRestorative’s novel drug BRTX-100, which is approved by the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to enter Phase 2 clinical trials, targets damaged and degenerating discs. The Company is well into its trial, a 99-patient prospective, randomized, double-blinded, controlled study, the gold standard of its kind. BRTX-100 is an autologous stem cell product that uses the patient’s own stem cells, which are harvested, cultured, combined with their own autologous platelet lysate and then injected directly into the affected disc to initiate the healing and repair process. Previous human investigator-initiated studies using a similar product to BRTX-100 (but arguably less potent) have shown a reduction in pain and increase in function in excess of the stated primary endpoints in BioRestorative’s phase 2 protocol. This fascinating opportunity presents a study that is highly suggestive of the potential outcomes for which they are currently processing. In addition, the treatment is anticipated to be safer, cheaper and more effective with a single treatment. BioRestorative’s other product — ThermoStem — has highly promising results in the treatment of obesity and related diseases. Obesity affects over 40% of Americans, and BioRestorative is developing a novel stem-cell population — brown adipose tissue — that shows signs of regulating metabolic activity and reducing excess fat. BioRestorative Therapies Has Joined The Leagues Of 23andMe, Qualcomm and Naviscan In September 2021, BioRestorative was awarded a Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) phase I grant for $256,000. The project seeks to evaluate the therapeutic effects on the company’s hypoxic cultured bone marrow derived mesenchymal stem cells (BRTX-100) after encapsulation with a PEG-peptide hydrogel. The work is being done in collaboration with Dr. Lori Setton, Chair of the Department of Biomedical Engineering at Washington University in St. Louis. SBIR is a federal program coordinated by the Small Business Administration that funds research and development. STTR is a Small Business Innovation Research (SBIR) sister program. The programs are one of the largest sources of funding for early-stage companies. Big-name companies like 23andMe Holding Co. (NASDAQ: ME), Qualcomm Inc. (NASDAQ: QCOM) and Naviscan Inc. were awarded SBIR and STTR funding, which helped them become the companies they are today. SBIR and STTR programs are highly competitive programs that foster and encourage small businesses to engage in Federal Research/Research and Development (R/R&D) with the potential for product commercialization. Through this highly competitive awards-based program, SBIR and STTR enable small businesses to explore their technological potential and provide the incentive to profit from its commercialization. SBIR and STTR are like gold mines for smaller companies. Borrowing from a bank is often difficult for new, innovative businesses because they lack collateral and revenue to help secure loans. While venture capital often fills the gap, it’s not always available and companies can lose autonomy if a venture capital firm wants to have a heavier hand in decisions. With the SBIR and STTR programs, funding is stable and predictable as it is an award, not a loan. Small businesses retain intellectual property rights. Additionally, the National Institute of Health (NIH), which oversees the programs, provides recognition, validation and visibility to early-stage companies that they might not otherwise have with either a loan from a bank or venture capital. Receiving an SBIR and STTR award can also help attract more funding because of the prestige associated with the programs. SBIR and STTR programs have supported the development of 99 drugs from 1996-2020. Of these drugs, 16% of all treatments made a “significant” advance over available medicines. Companies that receive SBIR and STTR awards are put on the map and can credibly say they were backed by the NIH. With the recent grants BioRestorative Therapies has received, the NIH has given the company a stamp of approval. To learn more about BioRestorative Therapies, visit its website. BioRestorative Therapies was founded by scientists and researchers committed to developing stem cell therapies to address unmet needs in patients with highly prevalent conditions.Our advances in stem cell biology and delivery protocols harbor great promise in conditioning our bodies’ own regenerative potential to treat major diseases more effectively than current interventions.Today, BioRestorative is actively developing programs that aim to dramatically increase quality of care for both (i) chronic back pain caused by disc degeneration, as well as (ii) metabolic disorders including obesity and diabetes.
