Menopause Is A $600 Billion Market Opportunity For Companies Like Rootless That Are Looking To Provide Women Much-Needed Solutions

Benzinga

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga In the past few years, women’s health has been brought to the foreground, and many women are turning to more natural approaches to feel like their best selves. From cycle syncing to eating certain herbal remedies to even transitioning away from hormonal birth control, there seems to be a cultural shift of women embracing more natural remedies to support their overall wellness. Doctors have witnessed a slow decline in prescription requests, with a 9% decrease in oral contraceptive use between 2002 and 2017. However, notably, Gen Z has taken to social media to express their dissatisfaction with Big Pharma and concerns over the side effects of hormonal drugs. This isn’t to say that only younger women are developing a deeper awareness of different approaches to wellness. Herbal medicine has been shown to help women from menstruation to menopause and beyond. Historically, women’s health issues like menopause have often been relegated to the sidelines – many women were expected to suffer in silence – but today, education around menopause is growing, which has created an estimated $600 billion opportunity in treating women experiencing menopause for companies willing to provide solutions to half of the population. This Seaweed Company Is Reshaping How We Approach Women’s Health Rootless is a company dedicated to revolutionizing aspects of the global food system, with a particular focus on women's health. Founded by Sachi Singh, a passionate advocate of seaweed, this company is on a mission to make the health benefits of seaweed accessible to all. Recognizing the transformative power of this superfood, Rootless aims to create products that not only enhance individual health but also contribute positively to the planet and communities. Sachi's personal health journey has played a significant role in shaping the vision of Rootless. Having struggled with hormonal acne and various hormonal disorders since her early teens, like so many other women, she discovered that treating the root cause of these issues was more effective than simply addressing the symptoms. She has pursued this passion to create a business model that intersects women’s health and the environment. Rootless's flagship product, The Daily Bites, supports hormone health in menopause and beyond with over 40 macro and micronutrients in a whole-food snackable supplement, including vitamins, minerals, and unique bioactives. Rootless goes beyond individual health to attempting to address the well-being of the planet. The company sources its seaweed from the Atlantic Ocean off the coasts of Maine and Ireland and says it meets rigorous quality standards. The seaweed is sustainably harvested, providing livelihoods to coastal communities while simultaneously helping to heal the surrounding ocean environment by absorbing carbon. By sourcing their seaweed sustainably and supporting coastal communities, Rootless not only aims to help women navigate their health but also contributes to the healing of our planet. In a consumer trial where women ate one of the company’s Daily Bites every day for four weeks, 86% experienced higher energy and/or improved metabolism and 83% experienced less bloating and/or constipation, while 97% experienced less hormonal acne and/or dryness. For women experiencing these and other health issues, products like these can provide some relief. Rootless is currently hosting a raise to assist with increasing the company’s presence and support more women worldwide. Click here to learn more about the company’s raise and how to participate!

New Tech Paves the Way for Faster Airport Security

MarketJar

Airport security delays and operational disruptions are becoming an increasingly common headache for travelers around the globe, often leading to missed flights and mounting frustrations. A recent incident at Birmingham Airport vividly illustrates this growing problem. Lucy Kenneally and her boyfriend Matthew experienced the chaos firsthand when they endured a staggering four-hour wait in the security line and ultimately missed their flight. 1 Days later, Gatwick Airport faced significant delays after a fire alarm in the South Terminal prompted a full evacuation, causing passengers to be stuck on the runway and leading to a cascading effect of delayed departures. 2 Of course, these are just a few examples that highlight a much bigger issue. In reality there are thousands of delayed flights every day across the US and up to 20,000 delays every single day around the world. The problem has gotten so bad that the Biden administration has developed a new rule to address one of the most pressing travel grievances: flight delays. 3 Announced in late April, the rule mandates airlines to provide automatic refunds for delays that disrupt travelers' plans significantly, reflecting a major shift towards enhancing passenger rights. Another major issue that demands an urgent solution are airport security breaches. According to the US Transportation Security Administration (TSA), there have been at least 300 instances of people bypassing parts of airport security in the last year. 4 These security concerns are coming to light at a time when the TSA is working to solve airport security issues by upgrading checkpoints with more advanced technology developed by AI security company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF). Liberty Defense specializes in advanced security solutions tailored for areas with high pedestrian traffic and heightened security needs, including airports, stadiums, and educational institutions. The company's flagship product, HEXWAVE, licensed from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), offers discreet, scalable protection that detects both metallic and non-metallic weapons. Revolutionizing Airport Security with Advanced Technology Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) has successfully deployed HEXWAVE across various market verticals and signed several large contracts with airports around the globe. The company also inked a $3.8 million contract with the TSA for its High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) Wideband Upgrade Kit to improve detection capabilities and enhance the passenger experience. On May 13, Liberty Defense announced that its HEXWAVE system has been selected by the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport (ROC) to enhance the TSA’s Aviation Worker Security Screening. ROC, a vital transportation hub serving about 2.4 million passengers annually with 120 daily flights, is now the first U.S. airport to integrate HEXWAVE into its security operations. This deployment marks a notable step in using advanced technology to bolster airport security and operational efficiency. “As industry leaders, we are excited to be the first airport in the United States to acquire the HEXWAVE system to use in our broader airport security program,” said Deputy Director at the Frederick Douglass Greater Rochester International Airport Andrew Moore. “ We will use the HEXWAVE to provide enhanced security and an improved screening experience in non-traditional areas of the airport. We are excited to work with Liberty Defense as we are continually looking to innovate and improve the overall safety of our airport.” Unlike traditional weapon detection technologies, HEXWAVE utilizes millimeter wave technology, advanced 3D imaging, and AI to detect a wide range of concealed metallic and non-metallic threats—including liquid, powder and plastic explosives, and 3D printed ghost guns—without requiring passengers to remove common items like belts and shoes. This capability allows for a faster, more seamless screening process, enhancing the flow of traffic and reducing bottlenecks at security checkpoints. Liberty Defense is also expanding into international markets, announcing a recent shipment of its HEXWAVE™ system to Amsterdam’s Schiphol Airport in the Netherlands and Subic Bay Airport in the Philippines.

Analyst's Bold SOL Forecast Grabs Headlines; KANG and DOGE Reign Supreme in the Meme Coin Space

Kangamoon

The crypto market was recently shaken after analyst Altcoin Sherpa made a bold Solana (SOL) price prediction. Meanwhile, KangaMoon (KANG) and Dogecoin (DOGE) are soaring in the meme coin space. In fact, numerous analysts claim that KANG, which is now in Stage 5 of its presale, could become the next 100x meme coin in 2024. Today, we find out why. Altcoin Sherpa: The Solana Price Could Surge to $500 Solana (SOL) has been showing some volatility in the market. CoinMarketCap data shows that the price of SOL fell from $154 to $133 on the one-week chart. In that time, the Solana market cap also moved between $68B and $59B. However, crypto analyst Altcoin Sherpa remains bullish. In his new tweet, he predicts SOL's growth to $500 this year. From a technical analysis standpoint, this prediction could come true. For example, the Solana coin trades above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. As a result, experts have made a bullish Solana price prediction - reaching $177 before the end of Q2 2024. KangaMoon (KANG): Among the Best Meme Coins To Buy As Solana steals all attention, other cryptos are still making headlines. KangaMoon (KANG) is one coin that has shone with its stellar presale performance. Notably, this meme coin has already raised over $6M and will reach $7M before May 2024 ends. There are now over 6K KANG holders and 20K registered community members. Evidently, global traders are interested in this meme coin since it will bring something new - utility. KANG will be the main in-game currency for KangaMoon's upcoming P2E game. With this meme coin, you can buy in-game items as well as upgrade characters. This utility immediately separates KANG from 99% of other meme coins, which are hype-driven only. Another aspect that makes KangaMoon different is its community-driven focus. For instance, KangaMoon rewards its most active community members with free KANG tokens before its launch. Thus, 20K members rush to like/share/comment on KangaMoon's social media posts and earn this meme coin for free. Early buyers of KANG have already experienced a 290% ROI as KANG costs $0.0196 in Stage 5 of its presale. But remember that KangaMoon has ties to the P2E gaming market, which may reach $885M by 2028. This means that KANG's long-term growth potential is outstanding. Experts foresee a 100x jump once this meme coin gets a Tier-1 CEX listing in Q2 of 2024. Analyst Kevin Makes a Bullish Dogecoin Price Prediction Meanwhile, Dogecoin (DOGE) is another meme coin that is seeing some bullish signs. For example, the Dogecoin volume has jumped 26% in the past week alone. In that period, the price of DOGE fluctuated between $0.15 and $0.13. Based on the historical performance, analyst Kevin predicts that this meme coin may soar to $3.80. The technical analysis for the Dogecoin crypto also shows bullish signals. For example, DOGE is trading above its 100 and 200-day EMAs. Thus, experts foresee a rise to $0.21 for Dogecoin within Q2 of 2024. Solana vs. KangaMoon vs. Dogecoin - Which One Rises First? In the battle between Solana, KangaMoon, and Dogecoin, the spotlight shines on KangaMoon. This is because KANG boasts a low market cap of $19.6M, hinting at its potential for explosive growth with fewer new funds needed for its price to skyrocket. If you want this meme coin, sign up for its presale and get a 10% bonus. Discover the Exciting Opportunities of the KangaMoon (KANG) Presale Today!

Did the Next Crypto Bull Run Begin? BTC Price Tops $64K and ETH Rises Above $3K. Raboo ICO Brings in Over $1 mil

Total Media

Last week started with a bullish trend and the crypto-market saw significant price movements. The BTC price passed the $64,000 mark and the ETH price hit $3,100. Amid the excitement, Raboo, the new crypto sensation of the DeFi world, raised over $1 million in its ongoing presale and is quickly heading for a 100x surge after its ICO. Bitcoin (BTC): The BTC price is quickly recovering As the first and biggest cryptocurrency in the world, the Bitcoin (BTC) price acts as a proxy for the entire market. Consequently, the recent post-halving drop in the price of Bitcoin triggered a market-wide bearish trend, nudging investors to liquidate their positions in anticipation of new growth signals. These market behaviors stand as a testament to Bitcoin's relevance to the entire crypto ecosystem. The latest growth in the Bitcoin (BTC) price resulted in a rebound for the entire market, with most tokens showing a 10% growth over the last week. Additionally, experts believe that the Bitcoin price is going to hit $75,000 in the coming months as more and more institutional investors are injecting funds into the crypto markets. Ethereum (ETH): What will happen to the ETH price in the following months? As the first to introduce smart contracts in the Web3 world, Ethereum soon became the second most valuable cryptocurrency by market cap. This great surge may be attributed to the importance of Ethereum in the whole crypto ecosystem, from the DeFi sector to the NFT industry. Unfortunately, despite all the enthusiasm around the project, the Ethereum (ETH) price is still hovering around $3000. Experts suggest that this high-volatility period should be expected and that the future of Ethereum is still looking bright. The majority of these voices claim that Ethereum is probably going to reach the $5000 mark in the coming months and that wise investors should act upon this opportunity and get ready for the start of the next bull run. Raboo (RABT): The next rising star of the crypto world Raboo is a new AI meme coin that has amazed the market with its unique mix of advanced technology, SocialFi mechanics, and community-driven philosophy. Investors are offered a variety of features such as AI-generated memes, social media content monetization via Raboo's post-to-earn platform, and different exclusive advantages. Thanks to its innovative technology and robust ecosystem, Raboo successfully attracted over 5,000 members to its vibrant community. Thus, with a starting price of only $0.0042 and optimistic predictions of a 100x payday for early investors, it's not hard to see why Raboo is viewed as a golden opportunity by gem hunters worldwide. Conclusion As the market recovers back from last month's bearish trend, investors are watching the Bitcoin (BTC) and Ethereum (ETH) prices for the start of the next bull run. This indicates a positive future for Raboo's presale, positioning the project as one of the best post-halving investments available for any gem hunter looking for their next 100x. Make sure you don't miss out on this golden opportunity! You can participate in the Raboo presale here. Contact Details Total Media Solutions media@Totalsolutionspr.io

Boeing’s Chairman is Leaving Under a Cloud – So Why Does Exxon Want Him on Their Board?

NLPC

In a case of corporate elitists’ blindness at best, and ineptitude in governance at worst, Exxon Mobil Corporation’s directors have renominated Lawrence “Larry” Kellner, who is also the departing Chairman of the crisis-plagued Boeing Company, to their own board. Kellner, a former Continental Airlines Chairman/CEO, left the now-defunct (merged with United) company in late 2009 and joined Boeing’s board of directors in 2011. He was elevated to chairman in late 2019, and his tenure has been marked with failures both financial and reputational. As anyone who follows air travel news knows, Boeing has likely endured the worst year of any U.S.-based corporation due to numerous troubling safety incidents, with the penultimate occurrence in January, when a door plug blew off an Alaska Airlines flight at 16,000 feet, imperiling passengers and crew. In addition to that high-profile episode, Kellner has presided over a cascade of devastating headlines related to Boeing’s quality and safety record. It’s gotten so bad that now every airliner performance glitch, regardless of the responsible party, is now headlined as a “Boeing plane” incident. Yet, inexplicably, ExxonMobil wants Kellner to serve another year on its board, which he joined in 2023. As a result, National Legal and Policy Center, a shareholder in both Boeing and Exxon, is calling for fellow investors to vote against Kellner for the energy company’s annual meeting on May 29. “It’s incredible to have to even ask, but after the last five years-plus that Boeing has had, Larry Kellner is properly leaving its board – so why do Exxon directors think he deserves a seat with them?” said Paul Chesser, director of NLPC’s Corporate Integrity Project. “Is this about strong governance to protect shareholder assets, or just keeping the social club together until something catastrophic happens – like what just happened at Boeing?” Earlier this week NLPC filed a proxy memo with the Securities and Exchange Commission which further explained why it believes Kellner has no business serving on a corporate board at this time, much less the largest U.S.-based energy company in the world. Kellner, along with exiting CEO Dave Calhoun, were supposed to be the leadership pair to improve Boeing’s performance after the firing of previous CEO Dennis Muilenburg. Instead the company’s performance only worsened, with its stock price being almost halved since Kellner took over as Chairman. NLPC also released a short video on Thursday that highlights Boeing’s mishaps under Kellner’s leadership, and questions why ExxonMobil would want to keep him on its governance team. The oil giant’s board, in exhibiting the ultimate in tone-deafness, even plans to keep Kellner on the company’s safety committee! “There’s a reason Larry Kellner is leaving Boeing’s board, and that reason is failure,” Chesser added. “Exxon is not in business so it can provide soft landings for mediocre executives. Nonetheless his colleagues put him on the proxy ballot for the board, so our fellow shareholders should do the right thing and vote against him.” ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.
