AppYea takes steps for Future Growth

Appyea

Provides the following letter to its shareholders from its Chairman Boris Molchadsky: "I am pleased with the progress AppYea/SleepX has been making this year. As part of the long terms objective, AppYea Inc. (OTCPINK: APYP) took the initial step to advance the prospects of the Company. As disclosed in our quarterly report yesterday to the OTC for the recently completed fiscal quarter, the reverse stock split, for which we are awaiting FINRA approval, is a proactive measure that we believe will better position us for success, and ultimately generate value for all of the Company’s stockholders. The ultimate aim is to raise our stock’s visibility within the investment community by improving long-term liquidity and creating a trading environment attractive to institutional investors in the hopes of broadening our shareholders. We are confident of the prospects of the anticipated commercialization of the SleepX DreamIT X3 in 2022". Mr. Molchadsky continued: “In conjunction with the corporate actions, AppYea has secured funding sources who we believe will asist the Company to restructure prior highly dilutive debt and providing the necessary capital to enable the Company to move forward on several fronts, including: 1. Closing of the merger between AppYea and SleepX—we are awaiting the required necessary regulatory approvals. 2. Completion of development and commencement of manufacturing the first product for snoring treatment. SleepX intends to start a pilot in December with a leading hardware manufacturer after withstanding the Company's endurance tests. 3. Preparation for starting clinical trials of the product for the treatment of Sleep Apnea. 4. Locating and acquiring synergetic technologies and broadening products variety in the sleeping and respiration field. Looking ahead, the primary focus of the Company is to ensure the long-term success of the Company by acting in the best interest of all of our shareholders.

New Options to Treat Alcohol Use Disorder

YourUpdateTV

Nearly 15 million Americans have alcohol use disorder and 75 million engaged in binge drinking or heavy alcohol use in the month before a survey conducted by the National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism. This problem has not been solved…yet. Hope for a solution is one of the big stories coming out of the Wonderland Conference, the largest psychedelic business event, ever. YourUpdateTV spoke with Awakn Life Sciences CEO, Anthony Tennyson who discussed the problem. “Alcohol addiction is a chronic disease effecting many millions of Americans each year. The success rates for treatments are typically quite low though. Three out of four people are back drinking alcohol within 12 months of seeking treatment. There is, however, a new hope. Psychedelic assisted therapy has been proven to be more effective at treating alcohol addiction than any other currently available treatment.” Awakn Life Sciences Corp. (NEO: AWKN) (OTCQB: AWKNF) (FSE: 954) (‘Awakn’), a biotechnology company developing and delivering psychedelic therapeutics (medicines and therapies) to treat addiction, recently announced that the ‘Ketamine in the Reduction of Alcoholic Relapse’ (KARE) psychotherapy intervention study, which was the first controlled study in the world to investigate ketamine-assisted psychotherapy, will be published in the American Journal of Psychiatry later this year. Professor David Nutt, former Clinical Director of the US National Institute of Alcohol Abuse and Alcoholism and currently Clinical Director at Awakn commented. The approach we’re taking is to use new medicines to disrupt the brains processes of addiction to allow people to escape from the repetitive cravings and which tie them to the alcohol and and also with therapy to help them plot a new path in their lives. About Awakn Life Sciences Corp.: Awakn Life Sciences is a biotechnology company with clinical operations, developing and delivering psychedelic therapeutics (medicines and therapies) to better treat addiction. Awakn’s team consists of world leading chemists, scientists, psychiatrists, and psychologists who are developing and advancing the next generation of psychedelic drugs, therapies, and enabling technologies to treat addiction.

For the occasion, guests from all walks of life came together to celebrate kindness at the Museum of Modern Art in NYC, including: Amanda Seyfried, Billy Porter, Pom Klementieff, Evan Mock, Tommy Dorfman, Indya Moore, Cindy Bruna, Ella Hunt, Antoni Porowski, Helena Christensen, Joshua Jackson, Brandon Blackwood, Sophie Auster, Derek Lam & Jan Schlottman, Jill & Harry Kargman, Char de Francesco, Stella Maxwell, Thomas Hayo, and Stephanie Goto, among other personalities from music, fashion, film, television, and design. Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga: a collaboration that gives back Earlier in 2021, the paths of Dom Pérignon and Lady Gaga crossed in an inspired collaboration, sparked by a shared belief in creative freedom. Beyond creation, Dom Pérignon has long been drawn to Lady Gaga’s generosity, as she has been at the forefront of empowerment and well-being issues for 10 years. Generosity forges an essential foundation of their collaboration today. Through artistic collaborations, Dom Pérignon stands with creators to support their causes and foundations, including Lenny Kravitz and the Let Love Rule Foundation, which provides care and raises funds for communities in need. This year, as part of their collaboration with Lady Gaga, Dom Pérignon announced that it would support Born This Way Foundation. One limited-edition sculpture, two ways to embrace generosity The Dom Pérignon donation centered upon a series of limited-edition sculptures created by Lady Gaga for Dom Pérignon, in association with creative and fashion director Nicola Formichetti. From the very inception of the piece, Dom Pérignon pledged to donate the entirety of its profits from sales of the sculpture to Born This Way Foundation, a nonprofit co-founded by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, which aims to create a kinder and braver world. “What I love most about this sculpture is that it is made with a deep purpose. Generosity always makes a difference, and I’m honored that Dom Pérignon is kind enough to give back as part of our collaboration,” said Lady Gaga. Furthermore, Dom Pérignon widened the circle of giving back with a new way to support Lady Gaga’s cause. The Maison partnered with Born This Way Foundation to create a charitable sweepstakes offering participants around the world a chance to win the most exclusive limited-edition sculpture of them all: the N° 1 in the numbered series, hand-signed by Lady Gaga. The sweepstakes closed on World Kindness Day, and Dom Pérignon donated all funds raised to Born This Way Foundation. “An act of kindness is more important today than ever before. At Born This Way Foundation, we are very appreciative of the generous donation from Dom Pérignon and also Lady Gaga’s passionate fans around the world who participated in the charitable sweepstakes,” said Cynthia Germanotta, President and Co-Founder of Born This Way Foundation. “Moments like these help fuel our belief that we can and will build a kinder, braver world – together.” For more information, please visit www.domperignon.com and bornthisway.foundation. ------- About the Dom Pérignon x Lady Gaga Limited-Edition Sculpture Designed by Lady Gaga for Dom Pérignon in collaboration with Nicola Formichetti, the enthralling sculpture acts as a veil, enfolding a majestic jeroboam of Dom Pérignon Rosé Vintage 2005. The swathe of iridescence reflects the flow and movement of a magnetic dress. Produced in 110 exclusive and numbered pieces, the limited-edition sculpture is available upon request via private sales. About Born This Way Foundation: Born This Way Foundation, co-founded and led by Lady Gaga and her mother, Cynthia Germanotta, supports the mental health of young people and works with them to create a kinder and braver world.

Spiceology Welcomes Renowned Chef Jet Tila to the Collab Team with New Line of Korean-Inspired Blends

Spiceology

Spiceology, a leading spice and flavor company, today announced its partnership and new product line with celebrity chef, author and restaurateur Chef Jet Tila. This collaboration between Spiceology and Tila culminates with the launch of three new Korean-inspired spice blends, inviting chefs and consumers to experience Tila’s take on Korean flavors. Known for his diverse Asian cuisine expertise, Chef Jet’s new blends are his personal twist on the vibrant and savory flavors of classic Korean fare, including a bulgogi-inspired blend, ‘Fiery Sweet’, a kimchi-inspired blend, ‘Sour Power’, and a ssamjang-inspired blend, ‘Umami Punch’. Fiery Sweet ($13.95) - Translating to “Fire Meat,” traditional bulgogi is a thinly sliced beef dish that uses the flavors of soy sauce, brown sugar, Asian pears, garlic, ginger, ground black pepper, and sesame oil. This blend spotlights the slightly salty, mildly sweet and nutty-savory flavors of traditional bulgogi. Sour Power ($13.95) - Commonly mistaken as a food, Kimchi is actually a method of fermentation. This blend provides the perfect flavors to pickle any veggie, inspired by Korean culture’s adoration of Kimchi. Umami Punch ($13.95) - No Korean street food is complete without a smear of Ssamjang. With more umami than its spicy cousin Gochujang, Ssamjung is a thick chili paste made of doenjang, gochujang, sesame oil, onion, garlic, green onions, and sometimes brown sugar. This blend emulates these flavors in a wonderfully complex yet easy-to-use seasoning blend. “We believe in the power of collaboration, and our goal is to be a conduit to help chefs share their unique culinary perspectives and to share these flavors with consumers and chefs alike,” said Tony Reed, Senior Director of Innovation and Partnerships at Spiceology. “By combining our ‘Experiment with Flavor’ mantra with the credibility and knowledge of chefs, we can provide effortless deliciousness from many different cultures, including our most recent line of Korean-inspired flavors with Chef Jet Tila. This line opens the door to an entirely new world of flavors that most people have never had access to.” Tila is a celebrated author, a regular on The Today Show and the Food Network, and can be found educating and inspiring food magazines across the globe. Both Tila and Spiceology wanted to create a way for people to easily experiment with Korean-inspired flavors. “Meals provoke memories, and these blends are inspired by specific memories from my time growing up in Los Angeles and the stories that were passed down within our Asian community,” said Chef Jet Tila. “Though I come from Thai and Chinese roots, my dedication and passion for the Asian community as a whole is something I've always tried to express through my cooking. Spiceology is giving me the opportunity to shine more light on Korean cuisine and bring my memories of Koreatown to life for chefs and consumers to experience themselves. With the help of Spiceology, I’m inviting people to sample a world of new flavors with just a tablespoon or two of one of these new blends.” For more information on the partnership and recipe inspiration, visit https://spiceology.com/collaborations/jet-tila. ABOUT SPICEOLOGY Founded in 2013, Spiceology is the fastest-growing spice company in America and is on a mission to bring the magic back to spices, the world’s first currency.

Holiday Gifts That Won’t Break the Bank

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/84NvZOIljwI Almost a quarter of Americans worry holiday shopping will leave them in debt, but that’s not stopping consumers from spending at a fast and furious pace. Beauty and Lifestyle Expert, Alle Fister, has compiled a holiday shopping guide filled with a few gift ideas that won’t break the bank and one way to pay for it all before ringing in the New Year. SHOP & PAY OFF DEBT EARLY: Early shopping is a big trend this year with the added challenge of inventory concerns. Fister says consumers are combating the issue by being smart and savvy with their online or in-store shopping behaviors. She points to a new survey from Afterpay, the leading ‘buy now, pay later’ platform, that finds one-in-three people are setting a strict budget and plan to wrap up shopping before Thanksgiving. The lifestyle expert urges consumers to be wise and stay out of debt. She says one way to manage holiday finances is by paying off purchases early. Afterpay has declared November 19th ‘Done Day’—the official day to wrap up holiday shopping in order to complete buy now, pay later installments before 2022. Fister recommends turning to Afterpay, which partners with thousands of brands to offer interest-free installment payments, because it allows shoppers the ability to buy gifts and pay over time, without the worry of revolving debt posed by credit. She touts that, “Shopping early has never been easier.” Consumers can expect deals to be announced weekly throughout the season to help them shop early. For more information, go to the Afterpay app or Afterpay.com www.Afterpay.com Facebook: @afterpayusa Instagram: @afterpayusa Twitter: @ afterpayusa FAMILY-SIZED GIFTING: Fister’s holiday gifting guide also includes presents the entire family can enjoy together. She admits, “As a mom, I love bringing everyone together for those warm and cozy moments. One gift idea that instantly comes to my mind is Koolaburra by UGG slippers. The brand’s approachable price points make for a perfect gift the whole family, or financially focused fashionista, can appreciate.” According to the beauty and lifestyle expert, these slippers are made of high-quality materials that don’t sacrifice on style, quality, or comfort. She adds, “Personally, I’m in love with the Riley Shimmer Kid’s Slipper. Keeping those little feet warm this season never looked better.” She even thinks they’re perfect for the men in your life, “The Tipton Emboss Men’s Slipper is perfect for the guys, whether they’re making breakfast or settling in for a quiet night.” As for Fister, “I can’t get enough of the Batya and Lezly Perf Women’s Slippers. They’re so stylish and comfy! And you know, I am a Southern CA based gal—and I just really connect with Koolaburra by UGG as UGG’s little sister brand that offers a southern California cool vibe for the whole family. Effortless, easy, and exactly what I’ll be asking my husband for this holiday season!” For more information, go to Koolaburra.com. Koolaburra by UGG® Official Site | Koolaburra.com Instagram: @Koolaburra Facebook: Koolaburra by UGG - Home | Facebook GIFT GIFTS THAT GIVE BACK: These days conscious consumers are paying attention to more than price tags. Fister highlights how important it is to think of ways to pamper loved ones while using one’s purchasing power to give back to the world we live in. “One great gift idea comes from the female-founded beauty brand, Josie Maran, she is the pioneer of Argan-oil-powered beauty. They’ve partnered with the CORAL Reef Alliance to create a limited edition Pro-Retinol Body Butter in a naturally derived Grapefruit scent.” Fister says those who know “It’s cool to care,” can rest assured knowing 10% of all sales of the Body Butter will be donated to CORAL, which is focused on saving the world’s coral reefs. The Pro-Retinol Body Butter will be available in a grapefruit scent, while containing safe and healthy pro-retinol derived from pink algae to give the same benefits of a retinol with zero irritation.

She says, “There has been too much stress for too long of a time,” while pointing to a few of her favorite self-care items from the brand This Works. The lifestyle expert says with This Works, shoppers can give the gift of sleep and less stress this holiday season with their holiday gift sets that contain award-winning and 100% natural, aromatherapeutic blends that truly “work.” One example is the large gift set called DREAM TO SLEEP. It is made up of a trio of sleep saviors including a shower gel, body lotion, and celebrity-favorite DEEP SLEEP PILLOW SPRAY. Fister says she’s such a fan of this product, “You just spray your pillow or mist your PJs before you retire to bed and the 100% natural essential oil fragrances of lavender, chamomile, vetiver help you fall asleep faster and wake up feeling refreshed.” There are mini sets available with pocket-sized pillow sprays and items from their Stress Check line that help manage stress.

Today, its fleet of 17 contemporary ships sail to over 300 of the world’s most desirable destinations, including Great Stirrup Cay, the company’s private island in the Bahamas and its resort destination Harvest Caye in Belize. Norwegian Cruise Line not only provides superior guest service from land to sea, but also offers a wide variety of award-winning entertainment and dining options as well as a range of accommodations across the fleet, including solo-traveler staterooms, mini-suites, spa-suites and The Haven by Norwegian®, the company’s ship-within-a-ship concept.
