“Ready for Ron” Team Growing, Generating Tremendous Support, Amplifying Pro-DeSantis Message

Ready for Ron

Ready for Ron, a draft committee encouraging Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President is seeing growing momentum as the only credible organization working to draft, and elect, Ron DeSantis President in 2024. Ready for Ron launched an advertising and grassroots mobilization effort in late May to convince Ron DeSantis he has the support to win the Presidency in 2024. The PAC also filed a formal Advisory Opinion Request with the Federal Election Commission to defend their right to share the names of Draft petition signers with Governor DeSantis to convince him to run –an act of Constitutionally protected political speech. A new draft advisory opinion from the FEC is expected in the coming days. In addition to the progress at the FEC, a series of recent op-eds and news coverage show the significant and growing support DeSantis has throughout the country among political veterans and grassroots activists alike: Ed Rollins, Ready for Ron Senior Strategist wrote for FoxNews.com “…An alternative is clearly needed, and worthy up-and-comers like Gov. Ron DeSantis exhibit many of the same leadership qualities that made Reagan so successful. Americans are ready for a leader like DeSantis to reclaim Reagan’s vision for America, follow in Donald Trump’s footsteps, and lead from the front… Vanessa Porras, a Venezuelan immigrant, software engineer, cybersecurity consultant, and advocate for Ready for Ron PAC wrote for TownHall.com, “…Americans don’t need politicians who experiment with socialist policies, such as student load cancellation. In 2024, we need an actual leader who is willing to call out the radical Left…Ron DeSantis is that leader. We as ‘Ready for Ron’ because we’re ready to defeat socialism – before it’s too late..." Business executive, author, commentator, and Ready for Ron advocate, Joseph Semprevivo wrote in the South Florida Sun Sentinel, “Ron’s results speak for themselves. Florida-based employers have added jobs for 27 consecutive months, exceeding the national rate for 16 consecutive months since April 2021…Business expansion. Job creation. Economic growth. Those are the staples of the DeSantis platform, and Floridians are ready to see it go national. All Americans should be ready for Ron’s resurgence…” Lilian Rodrigues Baz, Ready for Ron’s Chief Legal Counsel wrote in The Washington Times, “…From Florida to the blue states north and west, America is ready for Mr. DeSantis. He will make America great again, carrying on the Trump tradition and inspiring hope in our country yet again. It can’t come soon enough…” “Americans want more Florida-style freedom and prosperity, not more inflation, crime, and out of control spending we get from the Biden Administration, stated Lilian Rodríguez-Baz. “We are building the biggest grassroots movements ever, and with support for DeSantis growing like this, it will happen even quicker than anticipated.” “We are 100 percent committed to drafting and electing Ron DeSantis in 2024. Ron DeSantis is the best choice to carry the America-First agenda forward,” Ed Rollins said. “In record time, Joe Biden has undone so much of what was gained, and is poised to do more harm to our country. In this time of crisis, we need a new kind of young, energetic, charismatic leadership to stand up for America.” Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage with the tens of thousands of Americans who already signed the petition at www.ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson or advocate, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com Contact Details Dan Rene +1 202-329-8357 dan@readyforron.com Company Website https://www.readyforron.com/

Is Screen Time Affecting Your Eye Health?

YourUpdateTV

A new partnership with the American Optometric Association (AOA), the leading authority on quality eye care and the gaming industry is underway to address the effects of prolonged screen time and its impact on eye health. AOA launched the first-of-its kind Screen Time Alliance with Nerd Street Gamers, a national network of e-sports facilities, events, and content, and Playcrafting, a game development company, to encourage Americans to get their eyes checked offline by a doctor of optometry so they can do more of what they love online. There are more than 227 million Americans who play video games1 and with gaming and screen time on the rise, so is the risk for long-term implications for people’s eye health. AOA’s 2022 Gamer Survey results revealed, the average gamer spends more than 8 hours a day on screens and has experienced various eye-related symptoms from gaming, including eye strain, headaches, dry eyes, and blurred vision. Further, many gamers are aware of the eye health implications for long-term screen time usage, but less than half (46%) visit a health care professional for a comprehensive eye exam every year. In-person eye exams by doctors of optometry are critical to identify vision and health issues as well as early signs of systemic diseases, such as diabetes, hypertension, autoimmune diseases, and cancers. As part of this year’s Eye Deserve More campaign, AOA is collaborating with optometrist Dr. Jason Compton, AOA member and gamer himself to encourage people to practice healthier screen time habits and be mindful of symptoms such as dry eyes and headaches. “It’s my job as an optometrist to get to know my patients’ habits and behaviors to create tailored recommendations to keep their eyes and overall body healthy, especially since comprehensive eye health is not a one-size-fits-all approach,” says Dr. Compton. “Whether you’re a pro gamer, Twitch streamer, casual scroller, or someone who spends all day working at the computer – it’s critical to see a doctor of optometry in person every year and adapt healthy gaming and screen time habits, like taking regular screen breaks and stopping any gaming activity at least one hour before bedtime.” To find Eye Health Guidance for Screen Time and to book an appointment with a local AOA doctor of optometry, visit AOA.org/EyeDeserveMore. About The American Optometric Association (AOA) The American Optometric Association (AOA) is the leading authority on and advocate for quality eye health care, representing more than 44,000 doctors of optometry, optometry students and optometric professionals. As the sole primary eye care provider in many communities across America, doctors of optometry are often a patient's first entry point into the health care system, and have extensive, ongoing training to examine, diagnose, treat and manage disorders, diseases, and injuries that affect the eye and visual system. Through a nationwide public health initiative, AOA's Eye Deserve More campaign is fostering awareness of the importance of eye health and vision care and the overall health benefits of in-person, comprehensive eye examinations with AOA doctors of optometry for all Americans.

Aqua Cultured Foods Unveils Alt-Seafood Dumpling Fillings for Asian Food Go-to-Market Partners

AquaCultured Foods

Food tech startup Aqua Cultured Foods today announced it has developed a minced dumpling filling for its future go-to-market partners specializing in Asian foods including retail and foodservice distributors. One filling option uses Aqua’s alternative shrimp in a bulk, unseasoned format for partners to customize their preparations, which then can be packaged and co-branded. Whether they’re called mandu, jiaozi, or gyoza, dumplings are a dietary staple in countries like South Korea, China and Japan—as beloved as burgers are to North Americans. The global market for frozen dumplings was $5.825 billion U.S. in 2020, and is expected to rise to more than $10 billion by the end of 2027. Traditionally dumplings may be filled with meats, seafood, tofu, and/or vegetables. While Aqua’s R&D focus has been on whole-muscle cut, sushi-quality filets with the same visual appeal of high-grade fish, dumplings can use off-cuts, trims and less than visually perfect filets for minced fillings. Achieving the proper size and texture for filling can also be done economically at scale in large batches, and requires less fermentation time. “We’re glad our partners challenged us to work on dumplings, and lucky to have their guidance through the process of perfecting the taste and filling for Asian palates,” said Aqua chief growth officer Brittany Chibe. “I’m especially happy that this product moves us closer to zero-waste by finding use for our off-cuts, with the added bonus that it’s very efficient to make in volumes appropriate for foodservice.” Interest around Aqua’s minced fillings is not limited to dumplings, nor to shrimp. Other alt-seafood varieties are likely to follow for applications including spicy tuna sushi rolls, seafood cakes/patties, ravioli and cannelloni, and others. Aqua is developing mycoprotein-based calamari, shrimp, scallops, and filets of animal-free tuna and whitefish with a realistic taste and texture. Aqua’s fermentation methods do not use any animal inputs, genetic altering or modification, and can be marketed as non-GMO. Unlike plant-based processed foods formulated with starches and protein isolates, Aqua’s alt-seafood retains its naturally occurring fiber, protein, and other micronutrients. Aqua has recently showcased its alt-seafood for current and prospective partners representing Europe, Asia, and North America. Public tasting events will gauge consumer acceptance later this year with select restaurant partners, followed by in-market product introductions via strategic partners in 2023. ‎About Aqua Cultured Foods Aqua Cultured Foods is an innovative food technology startup developing the world’s first whole-muscle cut seafood alternatives created through microbial fermentation. Its novel technology produces a sustainable, complete protein source using only a fraction of the resources required by traditional aquaculture. As an R&D company with a focus on product commercialization, Aqua Cultured Foods occupies a unique position in the burgeoning alt-seafood market as well as within the fermentation industry. The company’s mission is to mitigate global challenges such as overfishing, climate change and feeding the world’s expanding population with delicious, nutrient-rich foods. Investors include Supply Change Capital, Aera VC, HPA, Sustainable Food Ventures, Hanfield Venture Partners, Lifely VC, Conscience VC, Kingfisher Capital, Big Idea Ventures, and Gonzalo Ramirez Martiarena.
