The Signs, Diagnosis and Treatment of Lyme Disease Discussed as Part of New, On-Demand Webinar Hosted by Industry-Leading Quidel Corporation

Quidel Corporation

An important public health webinar focused on the Bartonella species, the bacterium that causes Bartonellosis, is now available on demand at https://education.quidel.com/educational-categories. Borrelia burgdorferi, the bacterium that causes Lyme disease, is also discussed as a coinfection on this PACE-accredited webinar, the third in a series hosted by Quidel Corporation (Nasdaq: QDEL) in collaboration with Global Lyme Alliance. Titled “The Diversity of Bartonellosis Manifestations and Challenges to Treatment,” the webinar is conducted by Monica E. Embers, Ph.D.,* associate professor of microbiology and immunology and director of vector-borne disease research at Tulane National Primate Research Center in Covington, Louisiana. Her research at Tulane focuses on the effectiveness of antibiotics and other therapeutics to eradicate Borrelia burgdorferi from the body while also exploring the many avenues related to persistent Lyme disease. Dr. Embers currently serves on the 2021 Tick-Borne Disease Working Group, which was established by Congress as part of the 21st Century Cures Act. Appointed to this position by the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services, the Working Group serves as a federal advisory committee to provide expertise and recommendations regarding all tick-borne diseases, evaluate tick-borne disease research priorities and help ensure coordination between federal agencies. The primary function of the Working Group is the development of a report of findings and recommendations regarding the federal response to tick-borne disease prevention, treatment and research, which it submits to Congress and the Secretary of Health and Human Services. On the webinar, Dr. Embers describes the possible clinical presentations (signs and symptoms) of Bartonellosis; compares Bartonellosis to Lyme borreliosis in terms of detection, persistence and treatment; and identifies research efforts needed to better diagnose and cure Bartonellosis. The timing and relevance for the webinar is particularly important as Lyme disease is on the rise to record numbers throughout the country and potentially affected as many as 476,000 citizens in 2021. Among those invited to view the webinar are physicians; allied health professionals; health researchers; and representatives of physician offices, laboratories, urgent care centers, patient advocacy associations and others interested in the subject.

Save the Redwoods League Buys Lost Coast Redwoods, the Longest Stretch of Privately Owned Shoreline in the Coast Redwood Range

Save the Redwoods League

Save the Redwoods League today announced that it has purchased the 3,181-acre Lost Coast Redwoods property in Mendocino County from timberland owner Soper Company for $36.9 million. After negotiating the rare opportunity to protect 5 miles of privately owned coastline in November 2021, the League raised $19 million in private donations from 4,884 individuals and foundations from across the United States and 10 other countries. Raising this much funding in less than two months is a record for the nonprofit organization. Loans and other financing enabled the League to finalize the purchase in the seller’s required timeframe. The League will continue fundraising in 2022, seeking public and private funding to repay the loans and support the permanent protection, restoration and stewardship of the property. Leading that effort is a new challenge grant from the Goodman Family Foundation that will match new donations dollar-for-dollar up to $1 million through March 31. “Adding 5 miles of spectacular shoreline and thousands of acres of redwood forest to California’s protected coast is an extraordinary investment in our future,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “With people from around the world offering their generous support, it’s clear that the public cares deeply about the beauty and wildness of California’s coastline and redwood forests.” “Now that we have removed the immediate threat of timber harvesting and development,” Hodder continued, “the work begins to complete the conservation vision, secure full funding and work with our tribal, state and federal partners to add this land to the protected mosaic of California’s Lost Coast.” With the purchase of the property, the League can now begin to restore the former timberland, explore opportunities to expand public access to the famed Lost Coast and identify a permanent steward. About Lost Coast Redwoods The 3,181-acre Lost Coast Redwoods property includes 5 miles of shoreline and an expansive 2,250-acre forest. Though most of the property had been aggressively logged in prior decades, second-growth coast redwoods, Douglas-fir and grand fir ranging in age from 80 to 100 years, make up a significant portion of the forest, with large old-growth trees scattered throughout. The property supports abundant habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout, culturally and ecologically important species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. This property is also home to Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and mountain lions. Offshore, the recently designated Double Cone Rock State Marine Conservation Area buffers this sensitive coastline and protects sea lions and other marine life along the undeveloped shoreline. The islands offshore, including Vizcaino Rock, support more than 11,500 nesting seabirds. Potential Future Public Access Along the Lost Coast Protection of Lost Coast Redwoods and its 5 miles of iconic California coastline at the southern gateway to the 57-mile-long undeveloped Lost Coast is a critical investment in California’s biodiversity, climate resilience and equitable access to nature. Lost Coast Redwoods is adjacent to the League’s Shady Dell property and within a quarter-mile of its Cape Vizcaino property. This connectivity offers the potential for the League and its partners to expand public access in the area and extend the famed Lost Coast Trail southward from Shady Dell. *** The public can learn more about Lost Coast Redwoods and donate to support its protection and stewardship on the Save the Redwoods League website. To access hi-res images, b-roll or drone footage of the Lost Coast Redwoods property, please visit the League’s online newsroom. To schedule an interview, contact Robin Carr at (415) 971-3991 or redwoods@landispr.com. Save the Redwoods League One of the nation’s longest-running conservation organizations, Save the Redwoods League has been protecting and restoring redwood forests since 1918. The League has connected generations of visitors with the beauty and serenity of the redwood forest. The nonprofit’s 29,000 members have enabled the organization to protect more than 216,000 acres of irreplaceable forest in 66 state, national and local parks and reserves.

NO DOGS LEFT BEHIND EVACUATES 40 DOG MEAT TRADE SURVIVORS TO TORONTO JUST IN TIME TO RING IN THE NEW YEAR!

No Dogs Left Behind

No Dogs Left Behind (NDLB) is thrilled to announce its fifth and final transport of dog meat trade survivors of 2021 into Canada. This fifth flight includes 40 survivors from East Asia and they will arrive just in time to ring in the New Year! These survivors will be welcomed into Toronto by the NDLB Team in Canada and their Canadian adopters. The dogs waiting to be united with their American adopters will either be moved to the NDLB Safe House or picked up by their Canadian fosters. Today is a significant day for Jeffrey Beri, the Founder of No Dogs Left Behind. “We have successfully evacuated all of our adopted and sponsored survivors! It’s the best New Year’s gift I can give!” says Beri. All of the dogs rescued have been pulled directly from slaughterhouses, wet markets and traffickers in East Asia. Many were rescued with their collars still on, a telltale sign that they were once beloved family pets that were stolen from their homes. Rescue is just the first step in a long road to recovery. Once rescued, No Dogs Left Behind treats and rehabilitates these dog meat trade survivors and then finds them forever loving homes. “We are so incredibly grateful to our adopters and sponsors for their support. This has been an incredibly difficult year given the ongoing transport challenges imposed by the Covid pandemic, and then the ban on the importation of these dogs into the United States,” says Beri. Despite all of the obstacles, Beri has remained true to his word and has successfully transported all of the adopted and sponsored dogs to freedom. Beri founded No Dogs Left Behind in 2016 with the mission to empty every slaughter cage in East Asia through its boots on the ground work with local activists and allies. In November 2021, they opened their first Safe House on Canadian soil in response to the U.S. ban on dogs from 113 countries. No Dogs Left Behind works day in and day out to create a sustainable solution for animal welfare by working with the local community in East Asia. The mission extends beyond borders worldwide advocating for the creation and enforcement of animal welfare laws and raising awareness for a cruelty-free, sustainable world in which no animal is violated, exploited, tortured or slaughtered for commercial use or profit. Urgent funds are needed to continue its fight on the front lines. Learn more about No Dogs Left Behind by visiting their website here or by following them on Facebook, Instagram and sharing their posts. You can also donate here to support their mission. About No Dogs Left Behind: No Dogs Left Behind operates boots on the ground in East Asia, fighting on the frontlines to rescue dogs from the illegal dogmeat trade. We work hands-on with local activists through emergency response, pulling dogs directly from slaughterhouses, dogmeat trucks, wet markets and traffickers. Our mission extends beyond borders, advocating for the creation and enforcement of animal welfare laws, and raising awareness for a cruelty-free, sustainable world in which no animal is violated, exploited, tortured or slaughtered for commercial goods or profit. With nearly 500 survivors in our care, No Dogs Left Behind operates sanctuaries in Dayi and Gongyi in East Asia. Follow us on Facebook, Instagram, YouTube, Twitter, and TikTok.

MEDIA ALERT: More than $15 Million Raised Toward Permanent Protection of Lost Coast Redwoods Property

Save the Redwoods League

Save the Redwoods League has raised more than $15 million since it announced plans to purchase Lost Coast Redwoods. The 3,181-acre property spans 5 miles of rugged, undeveloped Northern California coastline in Mendocino County, and it has an expansive coast redwood forest of more than 2,250 acres. “We are inspired by the outpouring of generosity and enthusiasm for protecting Lost Coast Redwoods, a place that will be an iconic part of California’s landscape for generations to come,” said Sam Hodder, president and CEO of Save the Redwoods League. “Raising $15 million from supporters from across the country in a matter of weeks is a record for our organization. But we can’t rest on our laurels just yet. I invite everyone who shares our commitment to a healthy future for the redwoods and the California coast to help us reach this ambitious goal by December 31st.” Save the Redwoods League secured an agreement to purchase the Lost Coast Redwoods property for $36.9 million, and it is seeking to raise a total of $43.4 million in public and private funding in support of the acquisition, restoration and stewardship of the property. News of this rare opportunity has inspired thousands of individuals across the U.S. and from six different countries, including New Zealand, Ecuador, Canada, Great Britain and Australia to make contributions towards the purchase. Several supporters have made commitments of $1 million or more. Fundraising will continue through and beyond December 31. The property supports abundant habitat for coho salmon and steelhead trout, culturally and ecologically important species that are protected under the Endangered Species Act. This property is also home to Roosevelt elk, black-tailed deer and mountain lions. Offshore, the recently designated Double Cone Rock State Marine Conservation Area buffers this sensitive coastline and protects sea lions and other marine life along the 5 miles of undeveloped beach. The islands offshore, including Vizcaino Rock, support more than 11,500 nesting sea birds.

Holiday Gifting & Preparation

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/JR9Mz8XHr4g The countdown is on as holiday shoppers continue to spend in record numbers. According to the latest stats, online sales have reached close to 110-billion dollars since November 1 st. That’s a lot of searching, finding, and buying. Beauty & Lifestyle Expert, Anna De Souza has come up with a few of her favorite finds for the favorite people in your life. FITNESS: The National Retail Federation finds the average consumer will spend close to $1,000 on gifts and other purchases. De Souza says there’s no need to stress. As a mom of twin toddlers, she’s done all the heavy lifting, stating, “It’s hard to get a workout in other than muscling them up three flights of stairs.” The Lifestyle expert has found one gift that she deems “smart and compact.” The Tempo Move helps give the experience and results of working with a personal trainer by offering real-time feedback, weight recommendations, and a training plan, and this full gym takes up only a tiny footprint as a sleek cabinet. De Souza continues, “As you work out, Tempo Move tracks your reps, form, weight – even the speed of your reps – and the artificial intelligence customizes a workout smarter than any human ever could.” Tempo Move comes with 50 pounds of smart weights and connects through your phone and TV for a fully immersive workout experience that favors effort over time. For more information, visit https://www.tempo.fit/shop/move. Facebook: @GetTempo Instagram: @tempo Twitter: @TrainWithTempo COOKING: Reports show that a few retailers have gotten a lift from cooking trends. De Souza points out that so much time is spent with family and friends in the kitchen. She asks, “Why not make some new memories while making some delicious meals?” The Lifestyle expert recommends picking up an air fryer, because now consumers are finally able to cook two dishes that can be synchronized to serve at the exact same time. The CRUXGG TriZone 9 Quart Air Fryer was voted Best Air Fryer of 2021 by Esquire. It’s engineered with patent-pending technology that features one extra-large cooking area that can be divided into two – so chicken fingers for the kids and salmon for you, or an entrée and a side – served hot and crispy together so you don’t need to microwave the straggler dish! CRUXGG just launched 8 products exclusively at Target which will be 30% off through the holidays. De Souza also highlights the brand’s Rotating Ceramic Nonstick Waffle Maker, that makes 5 one-inch Belgian waffles in under 10 minutes. She says it’s perfect for holiday mornings. “CRUXGG is also a purchase you can feel good about,” De souza adds, because 5% of proceeds go to a collective of nonprofits working to end food insecurity. For more information, go to https://www.target.com/p/cruxgg-6-in-1-9qt-air-fryer-with-trizone-technology/-/A-85017063?preselect=82541621#lnk=sametab. Social Media Channels: @crux.kitchen @ghettogastro Hashtags: #createwithcrux #targetstyle BEAUTY: As a beauty expert, De Souza has a few ideas for consumers that want to look and feel their best this holiday season and into the new year. She starts off with a holiday gift set from OLEHENRIKSEN. “You’ve probably heard of banana powder as a celebrity makeup artist secret to brighten that dark undereye area,” De Souza says, “The Banana Bright Vitamin C Serum with 15% Vitamin C is clinically proven to give you brighter, bouncier skin in 7 days without makeup. With other brands, shoppers usually get 3% vitamin C in topicals if you’re lucky. You’re also getting C-Rush Brightening Gel Crème, which gives you a full 24-hours of moisture and a color-correcting Banana Bright Eye Crème.” As a beauty expert, De Souza has been covering beauty for many years. She says if there is one product to horde, it’s Vitamin C. For more information, go to https://www.olehenriksen.com/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/olehenriksen/ Instagram: @olehenriksen Another gift idea De Souza recommends became this year’s viral foundation launch and sold out multiple times when TikTokers showed off the texture and coverage after just one swipe on the cheek. De Souza says, “The KVD Beauty’s Good Apple Skin-Perfecting Foundation Balm is unlike any texture I’ve felt before, it glides on like a buttery balm, but it’s surprising when you see it apply as full coverage with a velvety finish that doesn’t crease!” It’s formulated with hydrating apple extract and available in 40 inclusive shades.
