Potential UFC Top Fights 2023

Intelligiants

2023 looks like an exciting year for UFC fans, with top fights to be expected in all weight classes. Will Conor McGregor become the first champion of 3 weight classes? Jon Jones returns: Will he become the biggest MMA fighter of all time? First ever quadrilogy fight in UFC history early next year? New challenges for Amanda Nunes and Francis Ngannou? There have been countless reports and studies that show that MMA has been the fastest growing sport in the last couple of years and is projected to keep growing in a healthy trend in years to come. A significant factor is, of course, Dana White’s work with Ultimate Fighting Championship (UFC) and how the company has scaled up to become the biggest fighting organisation in the world. Another contributing factor to MMAs rising popularity is the cross-over boxing bouts outside of the organisations, between UFC top names, such as Conor McGregor and retired boxing legend Floyd Mayweather, YouTube-celebrity, and amateur boxer Jake Paul against UFC-fighter Tyron Woodley, as examples. The big money and paychecks surrounding these cross-over fights, make them attractive to fighters from not just the MMA or boxing world. However, most active, and top-tier MMA fighters seek to become champions and break records in an organisation such as UFC, Bellator or Pride - The number of title defences, or becoming champion in more than one division, is a sure road to legendary status in the MMA world. In a new infographic from the bwin online sportsbook team, a complete list of double MMA champions (multiple organisations listed), current champions in the UFC, upcoming title bouts and the potential biggest fights in UFC during 2023 is revealed. The blog post shares a Tale of The Tape match-up of potential fights between Francis Ngannou vs. Jon Jones, and Amanda Nunes vs Kayla Harrison, to give insights into fighting records and physical advantages. The post lists potential match-ups for all divisions, and here are three examples of top fights that could take place in the new year: Women’s Featherweight Division - Amanda Nunes vs Kayla Harrison Amanda Nunes has defended the featherweight title since 29 December 2018, and there have been talks about UFC wanting to end the weight class as they struggle to find opponents for Nunes. In fighting organisation PFL, former Judo Olympic and world champion Kayla Harrison is facing the same problem. As Harrison has never lost in her MMA career (15-0), a switch to UFC and a new challenge would be the ideal move for her career. This fight would be one of the biggest fights in MMA during 2023, between 2 undisputed champions. Women’s Strawweight Division - Carla Esparza vs Rose Namajunas Rose Namajunas was predicted to hold the belt for years to come, but Carla Esparza won the title from Namajunas at UFC 274 (7 May 2022), in a fight that has been dubbed the worst title fight of all time. As this was Carla’s second victory over Rose, Esparza vs Namajunas 3 is not unlikely to take place in 2023, even if Esparza loses the belt in her upcoming fight against Zhang Weili. As neither one of the fighters wants to repeat their last bout, it will turn into a war with a lot at stake: potentially the belt and Rose finally getting a victory over her nemesis. Men’s Heavyweight Division - Francis Ngannou vs Jon Jones Current heavyweight title holder Francis Ngannou's contract with the UFC is coming to an end, and at the same time, former light heavyweight champion, and pound for pound listed Jon Jones’s comeback in the octagon, will most likely be taking place during 2023. Jones has undergone a two-year body transformation to reach the heavyweight class, and if the fighter succeeds in taking the belt in a second weight class, he will be regarded as perhaps the best MMA fighter of all time. Although Ngannou's future in UFC is uncertain, a fight against Jones would be a dream match-up for UFC fans. When will the first-ever quadrilogy fight take place, and who are the top contenders for the belt in each division? See the full infographic and predictions here.

Comcast California Hosts Inaugural Digital Equity Summit in San Francisco

Comcast California

Today, Comcast hosted a Digital Equity Summit in San Francisco. The gathering brought together more than 100 executives, program directors, community leaders, public officials, and other key stakeholders from around the Golden State working to close the digital divide and create digital equity. The goals of the summit were to highlight best practices; learn more about the current and future needs of vulnerable communities; and identify challenges, solutions, and available funding resources. The summit also served as a moment to celebrate the work of Comcast’s valued digital equity partners across California, who worked throughout the pandemic to help drive Internet adoption and provide digital literacy training for those in need. In addition, the company announced it has exceeded its expanded goal to launch 1,250 Lift Zones before the end of this year. Comcast’s award-winning Lift Zones program provides free WiFi access in neighborhood community centers nationwide. Since September 2020, Lift Zones have enabled nearly 6 million free WiFi user sessions for students, veterans, seniors, and adults. According to a consumer survey of users who visited a Lift Zone: 4 in 10 report they would not have had Internet access without the Lift Zone. 50% of low-income households in major Comcast markets are within walking distance of a Lift Zone. 58% of Lift Zone users strongly believe that the site helps them achieve more. 58% report the Lift Zone reduces stress with studying, working remotely, and/or managing tasks online. 56% say the Lift Zone is critical for success at school, work, and/or managing tasks online. 92 percent of sites report that being a Lift Zone helps them increase digital equity in their communities. The Lift Zones program is part of Comcast’s Project UP – a comprehensive initiative to advance digital equity and build a future of unlimited possibilities. Backed by a $1 billion commitment, Project UP will help reach tens of millions of people with the skills, resources, and opportunities needed to succeed in a digital world. “We have a once-in-a-generation opportunity right now to help connect the unconnected,” said Broderick Johnson, EVP of Digital Equity and EVP of Public Policy, Comcast Corporation. “Working together between Comcast, our nonprofit partners, and the state and federal government, we will connect more households to the Internet and help even more people take advantage of critical resources such as the federal Affordable Connectivity Program and digital skills training.” “Comcast’s continued partnership and dedication to our communities have resulted in allowing more students, children, seniors, and families to get connected to the Internet, “said San Francisco Mayor London Breed. “Public-private partnerships like these allow us to ensure that all of our communities have access to services they need to thrive.” Comcast’s Lift Zones were initially created in partnership with city leaders and nonprofit partners to help keep students connected to schools during the early stages of the pandemic. These digital navigators helped countless communities at a time when they needed it the most. Even as students return to their classrooms, Comcast continues to see strong demand for Lift Zones that serve underrepresented populations and offer an array of digital literacy programs, access to online healthcare services, workforce development training, and digital navigator support. “Thanks to Comcast, we’ve been able to connect many of our families to the Internet with high-speed WiFi to support a dynamic learning environment for their children,” said Gloria Corral, President, and CEO of Parent Institute for Quality Education. “Today’s Digital Equity Summit confirms Comcast’s commitment to the communities we serve. I am eager to see how today’s conversation will improve and help support the lives of the children and families.” In addition to the Lift Zone program, which earlier this year won SXSW’s “ People’s Choice Award,” Comcast is proud to participate in the Federal Government’s Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP). ACP provides eligible households with a $30/month subsidy that can be applied toward their Internet service. When used to pay for Comcast’s Internet Essentials service, home broadband Internet is effectively free. Powered by a Comcast Business solution, the company has installed more than 150 Lift Zones across the state of California.

Gym Aesthetics

HONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach - 28 October 2022 - The implementation of augmented reality (AR) in sports is set to redefine the fitness industry and set forth a revolution, unlike anything the fitness realm has ever seen. By leveraging cutting-edge technology players are offered an unparalleled entertainment experience, in-depth analytics, and immense opportunities for improvement. Gymetaverse by Gym Aesthetics is ready to lead the online “virtual training” trend. German sports brand, Gym Aesthetics (GA) has partnered with the Physical Fitness Association of Hong Kong, China (PFA) to exhibit at the 15th Health Expo 2022 at the Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre. Introducing AR interactive fitness games to the public for the first time, the brand invited its brand ambassador, five-time MMA & Muay Thai World Champion, Alain Ngalani “The Panther”; and Hong Kong TV hosts, Brian Chan and Agnes Lam, to first experience the live AR games, including “Goal Keeping”, “Jump & Dunk”, and “Single Leg Balance”. Alain has been keeping on top of the shape and fighting professionally in the One Championship competitions despite being at the age of 46. He joined Gym Aesthetics at the Expo and was challenged to the AR interactive training games with Brian and Agnes. The world champion showed the public how he defied age itself by taking care of his muscles and joint health. During the AR fitness games, Brian’s “Goal Keeping” result was recorded as quick as 0.45s, whereas Alain’s “Jump & Dunk” result hit an all-time high at 1.03m. Gym Aesthetics aimed to raise joint health awareness through fun educational facts and interactive fitness games. Gym Aesthetics’ “Joint Guardian”, Alain “The Panther” volunteered and led Brian and Agnes to do some live training demonstrations with the audience, where they shared their workout tips and displayed simple exercises that could benefit knee joints and strengthen surrounding muscles. To close the event, Alain brought his team on stage to demonstrate some powerful boxing training and impressive pad work. The world champion even surprised the crowd with his signature performance “Leg Split in the Air” and the elevated whole event. Alain as the “Joint Guardian”, is missioned to educate onlookers on the importance of joint health and how supporting gears can benefit and extend our joint lifespan. He will soon be launching an exclusive training course for strengthening joints and muscles. GA’s vision is to remind everyone to protect their joints before doing sports to prevent injuries. "We were all " Joint Guardians" to ourselves and missioned to extend our joint and sports lifespan. With supporting gears GA Fit Gear PRO, including knee, elbow, and calf sleeves, they ingeniously help with joint stability and balance, while reducing joint pain with increased blood circulation that aids muscle recovery." To support the concept of “Sports for All”, including the disabled community, Gym Aesthetics sponsors an NGO event “Wheel For Oneness” - taking place on 29th October. Gym Aesthetics has also been working with professional athletes and coaches and will launch a FitToEarn fitness training mobile app “Gymetaverse” next year.

Ever since then I have always had Forces on my radar and when I see a cool pair, I cop.” Wilson says his hometown of Sandy Springs is best known for really good food, great parks and lots of trees. “My favorite things about Sandy Springs are the food, that it’s away from the city but still close enough, that it doesn’t have a small town feel and its close to my job,” said Wilson.

Keeping Cognitive Health Top of Mind

YourUpdateTV

Cognitive health is an essential component of our overall well-being as we age.1 Recently, Dr. Jeffery Blumberg participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss new study results released on the large-scale, clinical trial COSMOS-Mind, which suggests that those who took Centrum Silver demonstrated improvement in cognitive function in comparison to the placebo. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Finding a way to support cognitive function in older adults is an important public health issue, as roughly two out of every three Americans experience some level of cognitive impairment around the age of 70.2 Centrum, a leader in multivitamins for nearly 50 years, has a long history of supporting research to advance the science on benefits of vitamin/mineral supplementation. It is the most clinically studied multivitamin brand in the world.

Centrum Silver was specifically selected for the COSMOS-Mind trial which investigated the effects of multivitamin and cocoa flavonoid consumption on cognitive functioning in 2,262 women and men, 65 years and older, over the course of three years. The COSMOS-Mind team tested each participant’s cognitive function via baseline and annual cognitive assessments.3 The results of the COSMO-Mind Study show that an intervention as simple as taking Centrum Silver could help support cognitive function, memory, and executive function in older adults.4* Participants who took Centrum Silver showed significant improvement in their episodic memory – the memory that is tied to specific events or experiences, as well as their executive function as compared to placebo.5 A detailed report on the COSMOS-Mind Study published in Alzheimer & Dementia Journal can be found here.

Could MySize’s Brand New Apparel Sizing Tech Be Ideally Timed, With A Boom In Fashion E-Commerce?

MySize, Inc.

While there may seem to be some indications that e-commerce growth is slowing amid the current inflation wave, however, equally strong signals suggest it may not be enough to stop U.S. retail e-commerce sales from surpassing a projected growth target of $1 trillion in 2022. Even amid the economic downturn, one sector — fashion and apparel — could fuel the e-commerce industry’s growth. A trend report by BigCommerce Holdings Inc. (NASDAQ: BIGC) revealed that the fashion and apparel sector has been an e-commerce powerhouse this year, outpacing overall e-commerce sales in North America. BigCommerce is not the only platform projecting growth for the industry. Statista also indicates that the e-commerce fashion industry’s compound annual growth rate (CAGR) is expected to reach 14.2% between 2017 and 2025, with the industry hitting a $672.71 billion valuation by 2023. Sales of apparel, footwear and accessories catapulted in 2021, hitting $180.5 billion in the U.S. alone. The sector is expected to grow by 13% this year, with consumers set to spend $204.9 billion on fashion items online. Eliminating A Challenge For Growth Even though there seem to be great prospects for the industry, growth can be hampered if people still face frustrations in buying online — imagine receiving items, like garments, that don’t fit? Receiving an ill-fitting garment can be frustrating and can leave the customer unsatisfied. Correct sizing is key to growth, building consumer confidence in the purchase and reducing costly returns. MySize Inc. (NASDAQ: MYSZ) says its MySizeID product is the solution. But the company, an omnichannel e-commerce platform and provider of an artificial intelligence (AI) measurement solution that drives revenue growth and reduces costs for its clients, also reports pioneering a different technology that could change the hybrid shopping experience. MySize’s FirstLook Smart Mirror could be one of the first solutions for challenges with hybrid shopping — an emerging trend that combines online and in-store shopping. The company says the product is an interactive, mirrorlike touch display that offers: Personalized fit and product recommendations 3D try-it-on interactive avatar experience Speed shopping and self-checkout Integration with any third-party point-of-sales (POS) system High Valuations And Revenues MySize believes its algorithm-based technology has broad applications — that could match if not beat product offerings from competitors. Just as LivePerson Inc. (NASDAQ: LPSN) hit a $4 billion valuation at 10 times revenue with a chat application that transformed e-commerce by increasing conversion rates and decreasing costs, sizing technology is gaining traction to do the same, the company says. As comparable companies are acquired by major players such as Snap Inc. (NYSE: SNAP), Gap Inc. (NYSE: GPS), Walmart Inc. (NYSE: WMT) and Zalando SE (ETR: ZAL) at attractive valuations, MySize notes it could also attract the same level of attention and be an acquisition target. Luckily, a recent report of record revenues in the first half of the year could support the premise that MySize has the right product and business in a high-growth segment. Retailers Taking Notice MySize’s technology has been adopted by top brands in fashion such as Levi Strauss & Co. (NYSE: LEVI), Nautica, Gant and Dockers, and it doesn’t look like the company is resting on its laurels. From all indications, MySize may only be getting started as more companies are adopting its technology, which could be ideally timed with growth in the fashion e-commerce boom. The company recently announced an agreement with 7 For All Mankind (Brazil), a premium global clothing brand, to license MySizeID, and it could be going live in the third quarter of this year. MySize also has an agreement with luxury British fashion brand Temperley London to license MySizeID. MiSize kicked off the year by acquiring Orgad, an omnichannel e-commerce platform. MySize hopes the acquisition and incorporation of MySizeID into Orgad’s e-commerce solution will increase its profit by reducing costly returns. MySize, Inc. (NASDAQ: MYSZ) (TASE: MYSZ.TA) is an omnichannel e-commerce platform and provider of AI-driven measurement solutions to drive revenue growth and reduce costs for its business clients. Orgad, its online retailer platform, has expertise in e-commerce, supply chain, and technology operating as a third-party seller on Amazon.com and other sites. MySize recently launched FirstLook Smart Mirror, a mirror-like touch display that provides in-store customers an enhanced shopping experience and contactless checkout. FirstLook Smart Mirror extends MySize's reach into physical stores and is expected to contribute to revenues through unit sales and recurring service fees.MySize has developed a unique measurement technology based on sophisticated algorithms and cutting-edge technology with broad applications, including the apparel, e-commerce, DIY, shipping, and parcel delivery industries. This proprietary measurement technology is driven by several algorithms that are able to calculate and record measurements in a variety of novel ways.

Are You Getting Enough Physical Activity?

YourUpdateTV

Despite a wealth of research showing how even moderate amounts of physical activity can lead to better health and longer life, millions of Americans don’t get enough of it. Recently, Carrie Pagliano, PT, DPT, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the importance of staying active and how physical therapy can help. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/RlbXcIoVJ74 Earlier this year, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention released results of a study showing that more than 1 in 5 adults in the United States are inactive. Given that lack of physical activity is associated with pain and stiffness and higher rates of chronic conditions — such as heart disease, obesity, diabetes, and some cancers — it’s critical that people embrace movement and seek out physical activity. A great first step is working with a health care provider, like a physical therapist, to discuss your physical activity options.
