Paul Newman Summer Camps Mean Fun for All

YourUpdateTV

Going to summer camp can be the highlight of any kid’s summer. Camp is where kids learn many life skills that they will take into adulthood, including learning how to be independent, how to make friends, and how to embrace new experiences. In addition to fun in the sun, summer camp is also a time to learn about kindness, belonging, diversity, inclusion, and compassion. All those positive traits are fostered at the camps that are part of SeriousFun Children’s Network, a global community of camps founded by actor and philanthropist Paul Newman. Recently, CEO of SeriousFun Children’s Network, Blake Maher, and Executive Director of Rite Aid Healthy Futures, Matt DeCamara, teamed up for a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss how SeriousFun camps are spreading kindness, belonging, diversity, inclusion and hope to kids and families all around the U.S. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/1ckiqe7mcp0 Thirty-five years ago, Paul Newman, the Hollywood icon, philanthropist, and car racing champion envisioned a camp where kids living with serious and life-limiting medical conditions could break away from the everyday challenges of their illness to, in his words, “raise a little hell.” Today, Serious Fun Children’s Network, the leading network of medical specialty camps in the world, boasts 30 camps and programs which have delivered more than 1.7 million life-changing camp experiences to kids living with more than 130medical conditions and their families, totally free of charge. But the SeriousFun camp experience is more than just a week of fun and adventure. Over 80% of SeriousFun alumni campers surveyed said the SeriousFun camp experience was a major influence in the development of skills they use daily in their adult lives including the willingness to try new things, appreciation of diversity, self-identity, empathy and compassion, self-confidence, perseverance, and friendship skills. For Rite Aid Healthy Futures, partnering with SeriousFun to support kids and families was a natural fit. Healthy Futures strives to empower children and strengthen communities every day by advancing equity and opportunity for children facing daunting challenges. The partnership with SeriousFun Children’s Network places a caring community around children with serious medical conditions and provides a needed sense of belonging for kids who spend too much time isolated in hospitals. SeriousFun camps also bring together children from a rich variety of backgrounds, experiences and locations, creating opportunities for campers, families, caregivers, and volunteers to get to know others from within or outside of their own community.

‘AI Can’t Replace Creativity’ finds Freelancer.com’s latest job trends report

FREELANCER.COM

Freelancer.com (ASX: FLN) (OTCQX: FLNCF), the world’s largest freelancing marketplace by number of users and jobs posted, today released new figures revealing a surge in freelance creative writing jobs, growth in business marketing activities, and an increase in on-site photography and videography gigs. The Fast 50 Q2 2023 report, a quarterly dataset ranking the fastest growing and falling jobs on the platform, analyzed over 280,000 jobs posted to Freelancer.com between April and June 2023. According to the data, the fastest growing freelance jobs by percentage growth in Q2 2023 were: 1. Creative Writing - up 58% (from 1,868 to 2,961 jobs) 2. User Interface Design - up 52% (from 2,017 to 3,075 jobs) 3. Twitter Marketing - up 41% from (1,650 to 2,334 jobs) 4. Photography - up 40% from (2,101 to 2,945 jobs) 5. Writing (Microsoft Word) - up 38% (from 3,175 to 4,401 jobs) While the world debates whether AI will take human jobs or not, and therefore dramatically hit the labor indexes, the latest figures reviewed by Freelancer.com’s data science team revealed interest for freelance writing jobs are increasing on the platform over the last quarter. Other writing related skills also saw growth across the quarter, including Copy Typing (up 31.2%, 4,867 to 6,389 jobs) and Ghostwriting (up 22.8%, 5,212 to 6,404 jobs). Other jobs which have been deemed as ‘at risk’ of being automated by AI, such as data entry, have also seen an increase over the quarter. Projects for Data Processing were up 21% (from 9,076 to 11,024 jobs) and projects requiring Excel as a skill also saw a 15% increase (from 13,246 to 15,301 total job postings). “AI can’t replace creativity yet. While workers and businesses are benefiting from productivity gains offered by generative AI, the data suggests that the technology in its current form isn’t able to replace creative work. We saw a similar trend occur in the first quarter of the year, as creative design jobs were flourishing despite interest for generative AI tripling,” said Matt Barrie, Chief Executive at Freelancer.com. The Fast 50 Q2 2023 report also reveals an increase in businesses investing heavily in freelance marketing support. This trend comes off the back of an unprecedented rise in jobs usually associated with the creation of new businesses and new ventures as found in the Fast 50 Q1 2023 report. In addition to Twitter Marketing ranking as the third fastest growing job, growth also surged for the following marketing skills: ● Search Engine Marketing (SEO) - up 26% (from 1,840 to 2,328 jobs) ● Sales - up 23% (from 2,614 to 3,233 jobs) ● Marketing - up 19% (from 8,269 to 9,867 jobs) ● Social Media Marketing - up 16% (from 6,524 to 7,574 jobs) ● Facebook Marketing - up 14% (from 5,602 to 6,410 jobs) Marketing jobs are some of the highest earning on the platform per project. Projects seeking SEO experts typically pay US$2,231 per project. General marketing jobs on average pay US$1,422 per project, while Social Media Marketing pays $584 per project. Local jobs, which is where employers hiring freelancers in their local area to do service or physical-based jobs, are growing across the platform by 37%, from 2,122 to 2,905 total projects. The two key drivers for growth for these types of jobs relate to Photography and Videography which are up by 40% (from 2,101 to 2,945) and 32% (from 3,095 to 4,097), respectively. On average, projects for Videography attract US$70 per hour. Fastest Falling Jobs of Q2 2023 The most significant declining trend observed in the Q2 2023 report shows that employers are easing their interest for tech and IT related skills. The Fast 50 report for Q3 2022 highlighted significant growth in a number of highly specialized and niche tech skills, such as software development, android app development, programming, and others. The catalyst for demand being global mass layoffs and hiring freezes across the tech sector towards the end of 2022. The latest Fast 50 Q2 2023 data shows interest for niche tech skills is beginning to slow down, with software development (down 28%, from 1,308 to 942), API (down 26%, from 1,516 to 1,109), iOS Development (down 26%, from 1,220 to 894) and Microsoft SQL Server (down 25%, from 1,309 to 975) all decreasing over the last quarter. Easing of these types of skills also aligns with Layoff.fyi’s tech layoff tracker also showing a reduction in the number of layoffs occurring globally. Fast 50 Q1 2023 - Data Analysis Relief For Writers As Data Suggests AI Can’t Replace Creativity The main trend from the Freelancer.com Fast 50 Q2 2023 report shows freelance writing jobs, specifically those seeking journalists and editors, increasing on the platform over the last quarter. Despite having access to freely available generative AI tools, employers are turning to on-demand freelancers to help write creative content for their websites and blogs. Creative Writing jobs were the number one fastest growing job on Freelancer.com in Q2, growing 58% from 1,868 to 2,961 jobs posted. Other writing related skills, such as Writing (Microsoft Word) (up 38.6%, 3,175 to 4,401 jobs), Copy Typing (up 31.2%, 4,867 to 6,389 jobs) and Ghostwriting (up 22.8%, 5,212 to 6,404 jobs), also saw an increase over the quarter. Interestingly, other skills which experts predict will be overtaken by AI are also increasing on the freelancing platform. Data processing grew by 21%, from 9,076 to 11,024 in Q2. Jobs with Excel as a key skill also increased by 15.5%, from 13,246 to 15,301 jobs. Data entry recently ranked as the World’s Most Boring Job in Freelancer.com ’s global survey measuring attitudes towards work. Data entry is also one of the most popular jobs that employers tend to delegate to on-demand freelancers. Businesses Focus On Growth, Following Startup Boom, By Investing In Marketing Jobs seeking Sales experts grew 23.6% and Business Analysis increased by 21.4% over the last quarter. This is another indication that businesses are focusing heavily on growth and strategy alongside promotion. In Q1 2023, Freelancer.com observed an unprecedented rise in jobs usually associated with the creation of new businesses and new ventures. This was apparent with projects for logo design, corporate identity design and eCommerce all growing simultaneously and aligning with new business formation statistics released by the US Census. While there isn’t data supporting another rise in new businesses in Q2 2023, what Freelancer.com is seeing is businesses now doubling down on marketing, sales and social media efforts to increase business. This aligns with global trends of big consumer brands, such as ones reported in Australia, slashing their marketing spend and look towards more self-driven or low budget or organic marketing efforts. Twitter Marketing, which ranks third in the most in-demand skills for Q2 2023 after growing 41% over the quarter, is growing to become a popular option for businesses looking for social media support. Social Media Marketing as a skill increased by 16% and Facebook Marketing increased by 14%. Marketing, as a skill generally, is up 19.3%, growing from 8,269 to 9,867 total jobs in Q2. Classic marketing tactics such as Search Engine Marketing (SEO) and Web Search grew by 26% and 21%, respectively. SEO and Web Search are both budget friendly ways for businesses to maintain a competitive advantage in search engines results. A similar trend was observed in the Q3 2022 as many tech companies began mass layoffs and cut Search Engine Marketing spend as a way to reduce marketing spend. As a result, Freelancer.com observed growth in SEO related projects or social media marketing as both are cost effective marketing strategies. Jobs seeking Sales experts grew 23.6% and Business Analysis increased by 21.4% over the last quarter. This is another indication that businesses are focusing heavily on growth and strategy alongside promotion. Demand For Tech Jobs Slows Down As Layoffs Reduce Worldwide Freelancer.com is beginning to see interest for niche tech and IT related skills reduce on the platform. A sudden surge in technology related skills was observed all throughout 2022, however, was largely apparent in the Fast 50 report for Q3 2022 which saw a significant increase in jobs relating to niche IT-related projects all being driven by a surge in tech layoffs. The latest figures from the Fast 50 report for Q2 2023 shows interest is beginning to slow down as 16 of the top 25 fastest falling jobs are related to tech, which are the same jobs which climbed heavily towards the end of last year. Software Development, which had sustained growth quarter-on-quarter throughout 2022, saw a decline of 28% from 1,308 to 942 jobs. Projects requiring API as a skill are down 26% (from 1,516 to 1,109) and iOS Development jobs are also down 26% (from 1,220 to 894). Location-Based Photography & Videography Jobs Are Booming Local Jobs are a specific type of job which are location based and are specific to a location. These jobs are typically service or physical jobs, such as local pick up, delivery, photography, gardening or cleaning services. This quarter saw Local Jobs grow by 37%, from 2,122 to 2,905. The two key drivers for growth for these types of jobs relate to Photography and Videography which are up by 40% (from 2,101 to 2,945) and 32% (from 3,095 to 4,097), respectively. Visual content will always be in-demand for any business, regardless of size. Whether it’s capturing an event or shooting footage to use for ads, real-life imagery will always be an important part of promoting businesses. ##### Freelancer Fast 50 The Freelancer Fast 50 report is the world’s largest forward indicator of trends in online jobs related to industries, technologies, products, and companies.

Le lancement du bioréacteur de The Cultivated B annonce la viabilité commerciale de l'industrie de l'agriculture cellulaire

The Cultivated B

The Cultivated B (TCB) a annoncé aujourd’hui le lancement de la production de son bioréacteur à application industrielle AUXO V™ sur le site de Burlington, dans l’Ontario, avec des délais de livraison réduits. Cette annonce représente une étape importante pour TCB, mais plus encore, répond au besoin urgent de l'industrie de l'agriculture cellulaire d'augmenter considérablement sa capacité de production mondiale afin d'atteindre une viabilité commerciale. Les délais actuels de livraison des bioréacteurs proposés par les autres fournisseurs pouvant atteindre jusqu’à deux ans, les producteurs de viandes cultivées, de médicaments et de produits de soins personnels utilisant l'agriculture cellulaire et la fermentation de précision sont confrontés à des défis pour passer de l’échelle laboratoire à la fabrication commerciale. TCB souhaite débloquer ce verrou industriel en offrant de nouveaux bioréacteurs, dont la conception innovante permet un usage simplifié pour les opérateurs, et avec des délais de livraison compétitifs de quelques semaines. « L'agriculture cellulaire n’appartient pas au futur. Elle est déjà là », a déclaré le Dr. Hamid Noori, CEO de The Cultivated B. « Les autorisations récemment accordées par USDA pour les producteurs de viande cultivée montrent que ce secteur de l'industrie progresse rapidement. Néanmoins, les producteurs ne peuvent pas faire évoluer leurs percées scientifiques et réglementaires du laboratoire à la production commerciale sans avoir la possibilité d'acheter et d'exploiter facilement des bioréacteurs. TCB révolutionne l'industrie de deux manières: premièrement, en rendant ses bioréacteurs disponibles avec des délais de livraison de seulement deux à quatre semaines; et deuxièmement, en concevant un bioréacteur qui peut être utilisé par des non-experts avec seulement quelques jours de formation. Nous changeons la donne pour l'industrie de l'agriculture cellulaire. » Les bioréacteurs AUXO V de TCB offrent une combinaison unique d'utilité et de durabilité. Contrairement aux bioréacteurs de laboratoire traditionnels, les bioréacteurs AUXO V ont été conçus et repensés par des designers industriels pour les rendre faciles à utiliser par des non-experts. Grâce à un système d'interface homme-machine et un Programmable Logic Controller (PLC) de Siemens, le personnel de production peut être formé en quelques jours à l'utilisation du système de contrôle du bioréacteur, traditionnellement réservé aux scientifiques. Les conceptions et le fonctionnement des bioréacteurs AUXO V ont été optimisés par des experts, en accordant une attention particulière aux subtilités de la précision mécanique, à la nature cruciale de l'expérience utilisateur de l'opérateur et aux défis traditionnels tels que les problèmes de contamination. Les nouveaux systèmes de bioréacteurs se concentrent également sur la durabilité, principalement en éliminant l'approche industrielle traditionnelle des bioréacteurs à usage unique. En effet, les bioréacteurs AUXO V sont fabriqués en acier inoxydable de haute qualité, ce qui les rend stérilisables et réutilisables. Leur conception optimise également l'utilisation des matériaux et vise à minimiser l'empreinte carbone de leur fabrication. Les cuves bioréacteurs multi-usages AUXO V sont économiques, flexibles et personnalisables. Ils sont disponibles dans une large gamme de tailles allant de l'échelle de laboratoire à l'échelle industrielle (jusqu'à 25 000 litres) et sont équipés de plusieurs capteurs et d’ impellers optimisés pour différents organismes, tels que les cellules animales, les bactéries ou les levures. De plus, chaque impeller est livré avec un certificat de précision, qui garantit des propriétés de mécanique des fluides optimales pour les bioréacteurs. Servant à présent de catalyseur pour l’avancement de l'agriculture cellulaire, le site de production de Burlington de TCB s'étend sur 130 000 mètres carrés et sur trois étages, et bénéficie d’un emplacement privilégié dans la région de Toronto, qui abrite l'un des plus grands clusters de l’industrie des aliments et de boissons en Amérique du Nord. L'entreprise estime que plus de 200 employés canadiens fabriqueront des bioréacteurs AUXO V pour produire des protéines alternatives à grande échelle. Pour plus d'informations sur les bioréacteurs de The Cultivated B, visitez: https://www.thecultivatedb.ca/manufacturing/ About The Cultivated B (TCB) The Cultivated B’s multinational team of scientists develops and applies breakthrough technologies in cellular agriculture, precision fermentation and advanced bioreactor technology to enable scalable commercialization of the cellular-agriculture industry. TCB serves startups, corporations and academic research institutions within the food, pharma, cosmetics and personal care industries. With its pioneering engineering and production capabilities, TCB enables other companies to produce alternative proteins, such as cultivated meat, at industrial scale. The company’s fundamental commitment to minimizing the natural resources used paves the way toward a sustainable future, locally, regionally and globally.

Debut of Industrial-grade Bioreactor from The Cultivated B Signals Commercial Viability for Cellular Agriculture Industry

The Cultivated B

The Cultivated B (TCB) today announced the availability of its groundbreaking AUXO V ™ industrial-grade bioreactor and the start of rapid-delivery manufacturing at the company’s Burlington, Ontario plant. These represent significant milestones not only for TCB, but more importantly they address the cellular agriculture industry’s urgent need to dramatically increase global capacity in order to reach commercially viability. Because bioreactor delivery times from other vendors can be as much as two years, producers of cultivated meats, medicines and personal care products based on cellular agriculture and precision fermentation face challenges in scaling up from the lab to commercial manufacturing. TCB intends to solve that barrier to industry growth with bioreactor delivery times of just a few weeks, as well as novel, easy-to-use designs that make equipment operator training and skills transfer quick and uncomplicated. “Cellular agriculture is not a thing of the future. It has arrived,” said Dr. Hamid Noori, CEO of The Cultivated B. “The recent USDA approvals for cultivated meat producers are evidence that the industry is quickly advancing, but producers can’t scale their scientific and regulatory breakthroughs from the lab to commercial production without the ability to readily purchase and easily operate bioreactors. TCB is disrupting the industry in two ways: first, by aiming to make our industrial-grade bioreactors available with delivery times of only two to four weeks; and second, by designing a bioreactor that can be operated by non-experts with only a few days of training. We’re changing the game for the cellular agriculture industry.” TCB’s AUXO V bioreactors offer a unique combination of utility and sustainability. Unlike traditional laboratory bioreactors, AUXO V bioreactors were engineered and reimagined by industrial designers to make them easy to use by non-experts. With a human-machine interface and programmable logic controller (PLC) system from Siemens, production personnel can be trained in just a few days to use the bioreactor control system, something traditionally reserved for scientists. The designs and operation of the AUXO V bioreactors were optimized by experts, paying close attention to subtleties of mechanical precision, the crucial nature of operator user-experience, and traditional challenges such as contamination issues. The new bioreactor systems also focus on sustainability, primarily by eliminating the industry’s traditional single-use approach to bioreactors. Instead, AUXO V bioreactors are made of high-grade stainless steel, which makes them sterilizable and reusable. The designs also optimize use of materials and are meant to minimize manufacturing carbon footprint. The AUXO V multi-use bioreactor vessels are cost-effective, flexible and customizable. They are available in a wide range of sizes from lab scale to industrial scale (up to 25,000 liters) and are equipped with multiple sensors and optimized impellers for different organisms, such as animal cells, bacteria or yeast. In addition, every impeller comes with a certificate of accuracy, which ensures optimal fluid mechanical properties of the bioreactors. Now serving as an immediate catalyst for advancement in cellular agriculture, TCB's Burlington plant spans 130,000 square feet across three floors and benefits from its location in the Toronto region, home to one of the largest food and beverage clusters in North America. The company estimates that more than 200 Canadian employees will be manufacturing AUXO V bioreactors to produce alternative proteins at scale.
