Limak

GLOBAL ENGINEER GIRLS ACHIEVES MILESTONE IN KOSOVO TOWARDS GENDER EQUALITY IN STEM Prishtine, October 18, 2023 - Global Engineer Girls (GEG), the international philanthropic initiative aiming to improve women’s representation in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics (STEM), proudly announces the graduation of 20 young women from its flagship program in Kosovo. Implemented by Limak Group in partnership with the UNDP in Kosovo, GEG Kosovo empowers young women and girls enrolled in STEM education and provides them with opportunities to gain crucial experience in a male-dominated industry. The project aims to inspire the next generation of female engineers, and highlight the strides made towards gender equality in STEM education. The graduation ceremony marked the successful completion of a year-long journey of scholarships, training, mentorship, and internships, all provided by GEG Kosovo. The ceremony also highlighted the projects undertaken by the girls during their participation in the program, including digital communication, effective team management, personal brand-building, communication, and interpersonal skills. These projects serve as compelling evidence that extending opportunities to girls is a vital way to prepare them for successful futures in the STEM world. President of Kosovo, Vjosa Osmani, in her speech, mentioned, "We must ensure that all our bright minds have equal opportunities to pursue the education of their choice. We need these equal minds in order to address the critical issues of our time, such as climate change and AI. We cannot afford to exclude half of our population from the most pressing challenges of our era. It is imperative to collaborate and work together to achieve equality more swiftly. These young girls serve as clear examples of the potential within our youth. It is our duty to ensure that young women and girls feel empowered to pursue their dreams, regardless of the path they choose. They must harbour no fear or hesitation in stating, 'I want it, and I will make it.' Every girl holds a guaranteed place in our future. I encourage each girl to carry forward the legacy of GEG.” Chair of Limak Holding and Limak Foundation, Ebru Özdemir, said: “It's truly an important milestone for GEG and our vision at Limak. I’m thrilled to see the progress of the GEG Kosovo participants over the past year, and I am certain they all have a bright future ahead of them. Engineering isn’t a man’s world anymore, so it is our responsibility to continue to create opportunities for young women to succeed in STEM by supporting them in their studies and careers.” GEG Kosovo extends its gratitude to its supporters, mentors, parents, and volunteers, who have enabled the success of this program. Their collective efforts have empowered young girls to overcome challenges, build confidence, and unlock their full potential. Moving forward, GEG Kosovo remains committed to expanding and enhancing its programs to reach even more young girls, empowering them to break down barriers and become leaders in STEM fields. About Global Engineer Girls Global Engineer Girls (GEG) is an international philanthropic initiative that aims to inspire the next generation of female engineers. The inception of GEG was driven by Limak Group of Companies' culture and its Chairperson's, Ebru Özdemir's, deep personal commitment to improving women's representation in STEM. GEG provides girls and women with education, mentorship and career opportunities in Turkey, North Macedonia, Kosovo, Kuwait and beyond. GEG's predecessor, the Engineer Girls of Turkey (EGT), was launched in Turkey in 2015. Since its inception in 2015, the GEG university programme has benefited 710 young women by providing support for female students enrolled in chemical, civil, computer, electrical- electronic, environmental, industrial, and mechanical engineering departments in Turkish universities. This support has included funded scholarships and mentoring by hundreds of professional volunteers, as well as online training programs, soft skills and English language courses, internships, and employment opportunities at Limak's companies and partner companies.

AM Europe

Italy is well-known for its rich history, culture, and, of course, its love of gambling. With a centuries-long gambling culture, Italy's gambling industry has evolved considerably throughout the years. In this article, we will look at the current situation of the Italian gambling industry, its history, licensing, and the different elements that distinguish it from other European countries. You can also learn more about Italian Casinos at HT Tech History Gambling has a long history in Italy, with games such as baccarat and the lottery being popular for centuries. The Italian government has a long history of regulating gambling operations in order to reduce illegal gambling and create tax revenue. Venice created the world's first public gambling house in 1638, laying the groundwork for a regulated gambling industry. Various forms of gambling have been popular throughout history, from the lottery to card games such as Scopone and Briscola. Regulation The government closely regulates the gambling industry in Italy. In the early 2000s, the Italian government enacted legislation to liberalize the market, allowing international players to enter. As a result, the Autonomous Administration of State Monopolies (AAMS), now known as the Italian Customs and Monopolies Agency (ADM), was established to manage and regulate activity. The ADM grants licenses to online and offline operators, ensuring they follow severe laws such as responsible gambling and anti-money laundering practices. This has resulted in a safe and secure environment for Italian gamers, providing them access to diverse gaming opportunities while protecting vulnerable persons. Land-Based Casinos Italy boasts a network of prestigious land-based casinos that attract both locals and tourists. Venice, Sanremo, and Campione d'Italia are famous for their opulent casinos. These venues offer a blend of traditional games like roulette and blackjack with modern slot machines, creating a vibrant atmosphere for gambling enthusiasts. Online Gambling The emergence of the internet has had a tremendous impact on the Italian market Online gambling is legal and regulated, allowing Italian players to gamble from the comfort of their own homes. The Italian government assures that online gambling firms maintain a secure and fair environment. Players have a wide variety of alternatives for sports betting, poker, casino games, and even online bingo. Future of the Italian Gambling Industry The gambling industry in Italy is not without its difficulties. The continuous challenge is striking a balance between earning tax revenue for the state and protecting citizens. The government has implemented a variety of responsible gambling initiatives, such as self-exclusion programs and advertising limitations. These projects seek to reduce the possible harm caused by excessive gambling. Italy, too, is embracing technological advances. Mobile gambling is becoming increasingly popular, as is the incorporation of the virtual world into casino games. This helps to keep Italy's gambling market current and competitive. Conclusion The gambling industry in Italy has progressed from its historical beginnings to become a contemporary, regulated, and diverse sector. Italy's gambling sector is well-positioned for the future, with a strong gambling tradition, a mix of land-based and online alternatives, and a dedication to responsible gaming. As technology advances, the Italian gambling sector will undoubtedly adapt, delivering entertainment and economic benefits to the country. Contact Details J Stewart joshua.stewart@acroud.com

Stanford Blood Center Adopts New FDA Blood Donation Guidelines for Enhanced Inclusivity

Stanford Blood Center

Stanford Blood Center ( SBC ) is thrilled to announce the implementation of the updated FDA blood donation guidelines known as the Individual Donor Assessment, effective October 19, emphasizing a more equitable and inclusive donor assessment process. Dr. Suchi Pandey, Chief Medical Officer for SBC, stated, “This historic change in approach to donor eligibility is significant progress. By asking all potential donors the same questions about their sexual behavior, this change reflects the fact that infectious diseases like HIV can be contracted by anyone, regardless of their gender or sexual orientation. Although we recognize that FDA will continue to review if additional updates can be made, Stanford Blood Center enthusiastically supports this change. The revamped process underscores a data-centric approach that ensures blood safety. Ultimately, the blood supply is supported by multiple layers of safety, including rigorous testing of blood donors with highly sensitive tests as well as the donor health questionnaire. The data from countries that have already implemented this change – including Canada and the United Kingdom – have shown that making this change does not put the safety of the blood supply at risk. Previously, certain sexual behaviors led to donor deferrals, but under the new guidelines, an "individual donor risk assessment" approach is adopted, focusing on high-risk sexual behaviors. Notably, any donor reporting new or multiple partners in the last three months will undergo further assessment, with specific guidelines around deferral periods for those taking PrEP or PEP medications. SBC has played a pivotal role in advocating for this change over many years, contributing data to the FDA, participating in the ADVANCE Study, and supporting AABB efforts to revise the Universal Donor History Questionnaire (UDHQ). This dedicated effort underpins the FDA’s shift in guidance, ensuring a safe blood supply while extending the inclusivity of blood donation. Stanford Blood Center remains steadfast in its mission to further enhance the policy, continuing to provide valuable data to the FDA for future improvements. This initiative reflects the first steps towards repairing relationships with the broader LGBTQ+ community and invites everyone to participate in this life-saving mission. Further information about the changes to donor eligibility, resources, and FAQs can be found here. Donation appointments can be made at stanfordbloodcenter.org, via the SBC app, by calling 888-723-7831 or texting 999-777. Donors should be in good health with no cold, flu, or COVID-19 symptoms. Be sure to eat well prior to donation, drink fluids, and bring a photo ID. If donors have been deferred at Stanford Blood Center in the past based upon MSM (Men-Who-Have-Sex-With-Men) criteria, please reach out to the SBC Resource Nurse at 650-725-7336 to confirm your eligibility and begin the process of requalification prior to coming in to donate. Donors with general eligibility questions can contact an SBC team member for assistance at 888-723-7831, by email at givebloodSBC@stanford.edu, or by texting 999-777. ### Stanford Blood Center (SBC) is an independent, community blood center that supplies blood products and testing services to multiple Bay Area hospitals and is a recognized leader in the fields of transfusion and transplantation medicine. SBC was created at the Stanford University School of Medicine in 1978 to meet the complex transfusion and transplant needs of Stanford Health Care and Lucile Packard Children’s Hospital Stanford, as well as provide clinical trial services and specialized blood products for researchers. Today, the center remains locally focused, serving community hospitals, patients and donors, while contributing to research and advancement that impact the world at large.

How the Worker Shortage in Healthcare Could Impact Your Health

YourUpdateTV

A recent Harris Poll found that 68% of Americans are worried that the worker shortage in healthcare could have an impact on their own health. Recently, spokespeople from the American Academy of Physician Associates (AAPA), participated in nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the impact of the worker shortage in healthcare and how physician associates, or PAs, can help increase access to care. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/4XRJDYFt3R0 Healthcare workforce shortages are having a profound impact on patient access to care, with patients reporting feeling frustrated and anxious about their ability to get the care they need when they need it. The recent Harris Poll survey found that nearly three-fourths of all U.S. adults say the healthcare system isn’t meeting their needs, and more than 1 in 4 gave the healthcare system a failing grade. One of the most concerning ways provider shortages are impacting patients is the amount of time it is taking to get a needed health appointment. Patients are waiting an average of 3.9 weeks for a medical appointment. As one of the fastest growing medical professions in the country, PAs can make a positive and lasting impact on patient care. An overwhelming 91% of U.S. adults believe that PAs are part of the solution to addressing the shortage of healthcare providers and additionally, 90% of patients say that PAs increase access to care and make medical appointments easier to obtain. One significant issue is that PA practice laws vary by state across the country. The challenge here is that in far too many states, these laws haven't been updated to reflect the way medical care is delivered today. A resounding 91% of U.S. adults support updating PA practice laws and the mandate is clear: The public wants the healthcare system to be as efficient and accessible as possible and updating these laws is a win-win for patients and the entire healthcare system. For more information, please visit aapa.org/patientexperience. About the American Academy of Physician Associates (AAPA) AAPA is the national membership organization for all physician associates/physician assistants (PAs). PAs are licensed clinicians who practice medicine in every specialty and setting. Trusted, rigorously educated and trained healthcare professionals, PAs are dedicated to expanding access to care and transforming health and wellness through patient-centered, team-based medical practice. PA has been named one of the best jobs overall and one of the best healthcare jobs for the sixth year in a row by U.S. News & World Report The PA profession ranked number three this year in Best STEM jobs.

Formula DRIFT veteran Aurimas “Odi” Bakchis continued to impress hundreds of thousands of fans and fellow competitors at the Formula DRIFT season finale at Irwindale Speedway on October 13-14. With multiple podiums, Bakchis entered the final round of the 2023 FD season positioned fifth overall in the championship. During the event, he worked his Feal Suspension / GT Radial Nissan S15 up the steeply banked track and into second place both at the event and in the overall championship standings in front of a sold-out crowd. While Bakchis’ driving earned the respect of the judges and put him on the podium, his car build also earned the respect of the fans, who voted Bakchis’ Feal Suspension / GT Radial Nissan S15 as the 2023 “Fan Favorite Car.” As runner up in the entire Formula DRIFT PRO championship, Bakchis placed an exclamation point over an impressive showing all season by the entire Feal Suspension Race Team. Bakchis himself is owner and operator of the Feal Suspension Race Team, which took on two new drivers this season.
