India's MAJOR Gaming Growth!

QYOU Media Inc

ValueTheMarkets News Commentary - The Indian gaming market is projected to rapidly grow in size, nearly tripling from $2.6bn to $8.6bn between 2022 and 2027 according to projections from Statista. Perhaps this is no surprise, considering the country's huge population of young consumers and rapid adoption of tech. This article will discuss the issue with reference to Alphabet Inc ( NASDAQ: GOOGL ), Tencent Holdings Ltd ( OTC: TCEHY ), Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT ) and QYOU Media ( TSXV: QYOU ) ( OTCQB: QYOUF ). As this article has already shown, gaming is set for a massive uplift in India. A major part of this opportunity is the mobile gaming market, with the vast majority of gamers in the country using their smartphone to play. Indeed, 94% of gamers use their phones in India according to KPMG, compared to less than 10% using PC or consoles respectively. That's why we're looking at QYOU Media, Tencent, Microsoft and Alphabet from a largely mobile perspective. QYOU Media ( TSXV: QYOU ) ( OTCQB: QYOUF ) is an entertainment company with a focus on bringing creator-led content to the Indian market. While the business already owns a slew of successful TV channels across traditional and app-based platforms, it took the jump into the mobile gaming space at the start of this year. In January, the business acquired Maxamtech, a specialist in free-to-play mobile games and owner of the Gaming360 platform. Now, the business is moving into the real-money gaming space, taking advantage of its huge popularity in India. The business will launch a new version of its casual mobile gaming app, QGAMESMELA, which comes with 'freemium' capabilities. Players will be able to win cash prizes and awards via both free and real-money gaming engagements. With India's real-money gaming market expected to reach 60bn rupees by 2025, this looks like it could be an astute move from this rapidly evolving business. Alphabet Inc ( NASDAQ: GOOGL ) has a major opportunity in India due to the strong growth of app users in the country. Indeed, according to 42Matters, India is the top country in the world in terms of number of apps installed and used per month. The company has enjoyed huge growth in India, with its mobile play store seeing a 200% increase in active monthly users and an 80% jump in consumer spending in 2021 compared to 2019. While a large amount of app downloads are by gamers, with titles like Ludo King exceeding 500 million downloads, the company said in 2022 that it had also seen "stupendous growth" across categories like education, payments, health and entertainment. With 2022 representing the first year of declines in Google App Store revenues, the company could decide that focusing on a major potential market like India is a route to strong future growth. Tencent Holdings Ltd ( OTC: TCEHY ) is an absolute titan when it comes to mobile gaming. In India, the company owned PUBG Mobile, which WAS the top mobile gaming IP back in 2021. The company also owns Finnish videogame developer Supercell, makers of the Clash of Clans titles. This further demonstrates the Chinese multinational's tight grasp on the nation's mobile gaming space at the time. So, what's changed? September 2020 saw the Indian government banning titles like PUBG Mobile and other Chinese-owned apps, citing data privacy issues. Replacement versions of some titles have resurfaced, but the ban has damaged Tencent in the country. But Tencent is wading back into India, having launched new mobile title Undawn in the country back in June 2023. With no bans in place yet, despite noise from some interest groups, this could be the start of a new concerted push into the territory. Tech giant Microsoft ( NASDAQ: MSFT ) is another outfit which is pushing into the Indian mobile gaming market. This is largely due to the company's acquisition of Activision Blizzard, which bolsters its PC and console gaming offering but also crucially offers major new inroads into the mobile gaming space. As one of the biggest markets in the world for mobile gaming, India is sure to be a target for the company. The company will already have a strong presence in the nation. Research published by Statista in 2021 indicated that Activision Blizzard's growing share of the Indian gaming market would represent more than 14% of the total in 2022. Indeed, immensely popular mobile titles like Candy Crush are already under the company's wing and offer it significant opportunity. Additionally, the clear challenges already in place for Chinese competition mean that further growth is a realistic possibility. While its clear that India presents a huge opportunity for gaming companies, this article has outlined the radically different states some of the main competitors find themselves in. Tencent is dogged by uncertainty as it attempts to bounce back from mass bans, while Microsoft has suddenly become a key player. Alphabet's platform is seeing major growth and new kid on the block QYOU Media is astutely swooping in to corner the real-money gaming opportunity.

National Survey Reveals Women of All Ages Cite Mental Health as Their Number One Health Concern

LevLane

LevLane Advertising, an award-winning full-service agency headquartered in Philadelphia, has released the results of its 2023 Women’s Health Concerns Survey of 400 women, ages 18+, which explores how women are approaching various aspects of their health and wellness. The survey, which was conducted by a market research provider on behalf of LevLane, paints a concerning picture, as women report deprioritizing sexual/reproductive health and almost every other aspect of their well-being, while mental health concerns take priority. This is true even in the younger age groups where sexual health is traditionally considered as a primary concern (ages 18-34). Across all ages 18+, just 6% of all women reported sexual health as their number one priority. The majority of women (53%) reported mental health as one of their top three health concerns, with 26% saying that it was their number one concern. Stress management (45%), sleep health (33%) and heart health (32%) were among the other top concerns, while reproductive/sexual health (19%), diabetes (18%), pregnancy/post-partum (11%) and menopause/perimenopause (11%) were ranked lowest overall. Women 55+ were the only age group to report something other than mental health as their top concern. That cohort reported both heart health and stress management as tied for their number one priority. “Coming out of COVID, we expected to see a bump in mental health as a concern, but we were all taken aback by just how many women across all age groups cited it as their top concern,” said Liz Weir, chief marketing officer at LevLane. “Even in younger age groups, where we would expect to see more of an emphasis on sexual and reproductive health or pregnancy and post-partum, we found that women are putting those things on the back burner to prioritize mental health.” The study is the first in a series planned by the agency. The forthcoming surveys will continue to focus on specific aspects of women’s health with the goal of better understanding the broader women’s healthcare landscape. “In their efforts to address mental health concerns, an unintended consequence could be neglecting other very critical aspects of their well-being,” said Karla Loken, DO, OBGYN, FACOOG and chief medical officer for FEMSelect. “We need to address women’s health comprehensively; neglecting one area will ultimately lead to consequences in another. Women are juggling a lot of things, and this research is signaling that women need more support, including education and awareness on promoting a balanced approach to physical, mental and emotional health.” The study also found that many women are opting out of support, with half (50%) of the respondents saying they are not seeking support for their top concern/priority and have no intention of doing so. Additional Survey Findings: - 10% of Women 18-24 reported sexual and reproductive health as a top priority - 35% of women 35-44 said mental health was their top priority - Women 18-24 were the age group most concerned with cancer as a top 3 priority - Women 35-44 were the only age group to include obesity as a top 3 priority or concern - Women in the 18-34 bracket tend to start their health journeys with online search or through friends and family - Women 34+ tend to start their health journeys with their primary care physicians (PCPs) For complete survey results, please contact Lauren Stralo below.

Analyst Price Prediction: BNB and Dogecoin To Recover, New Project To Surge 280%

Total Media

Binance celebrated its 25th quarterly burn where it burnt 2.14 million BNB tokens. Investors are sceptical that this could affect BNB’s price. Dogecoin's price is still on the decline as the DOGE community hopes for Elon Musk’s X platform to adopt the meme coin. Meanwhile, a new crypto project, Everlodge, has caught the attention of analysts in the past few weeks. Summary: The BNB price is showing signals of a potential rally on the weekly chart. Development on the Dogecoin network dropped significantly. Analysts have forecasted a price surge of 280% for Everlodge. Everlodge (ELDG) Forays Into the Vacation Rental Market According to research, the global tourism sector has become a booming market since the Covid-19 pandemic. Statistical data shows that the number of hotels and resorts worldwide is over 700,000. However, only a few people have enough money to invest in such properties. Fortunately, Everlodge is here to level the playing field for every investor. Everlodge is an upcoming Web3 platform designed to solve challenges in real estate. People will be able to buy and sell real estate properties cheaply by using the fractionalization of Non-Fungible Tokens (NFTs). NFT fractionalization entails dividing a full NFT representing a real estate property into fractions that people can buy with as little as $100. These NFTs have real value and can be used as collateral for loans. In the meantime, Everlodge is in the fifth presale stage. Its ELDG token is up for grabs at just $0.02. Those who buy the Everlodge token will enjoy passive income, discounts, governance rights, and a chance to win a free vacation to the Maldives. Analysts have forecasted that ELDG's value will go up by 280% by December. What is Next for BNB (BNB) Price After Token Burns? Binance Coin (BNB) is making waves in the cryptocurrency sector as it burns 2.14 million BNB tokens. This burn strategy is part of the platform's strategy to reduce the supply of BNB and increase its price. Following the burn, the price of BNB rose by 3%, to touch $213. In addition, the token has managed to maintain a 3.3% gain on the weekly chart. Looking at the price chart, the BNB coin is currently bouncing between $205.23 and $222.43. Firstly, there is an initial support level of $195.97, which acts like a safety net. Additionally, there is a stronger support at $178.77. Also, network activity on the BNB Chain has been on the rise. The network recently released the Greenfield mainnet. The aim of this storage network is to transform Web3 data usage and ownership. Crypto analysts remain bullish on the BNB coin and predict a price pump to $230 in the coming weeks. What is Happening To Dogecoin (DOGE)? Dogecoin (DOGE), the famous meme coin has been stuck in a tight trading range in the past few months. Dogecoin's price has struggled to go above $0.06 for the last two months. This lack of progress comes at a time of uncertainty in the wider cryptocurrency market. Additionally, Dogecoin's daily transaction volume has dropped, showing a lack of user interest in the coin. The price of Dogecoin has fallen from $0.06011 on October 16th to $0.058986 on October 18th. Also, development on the Dogecoin network has plunged in the past months. Nevertheless, crypto analysts are still bullish on the price of Dogecoin given its latest listing on BitTrade. They have forecasted Dogecoin's price to rise to $0.0723 when market condition improves.

Cutting Through the AEP Clutter

YourUpdateTV

Millions of older Americans rely on Medicare as a crucial support for their health care. Yet, choosing a health plan that fits their needs can be overwhelming, particularly since nearly 90% of adults struggle with understanding health-related information. This can make the Medicare Annual Enrollment Period (AEP) – which runs from October 15 th to December 7 th – feel like an obstacle course Medicare beneficiaries must navigate every year. A video accompaying this release can be found here: https://youtu.be/F-MZ0L3t9Zw Recently, Terri Swanson, President of Medicare for Aetna, a CVS Health company, participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss the annual enrollment period and tips for consumers on how to choose a plan. When selecting a plan, the first thing people should consider is their own health needs, which can help cut through the clutter of information and make a decision that’s right for you. Medicare decisions can be confusing, so it’s important to seek out trusted sources of information and ask yourself some basic questions before choosing a plan. The three main questions people should ask themselves are: Will this plan fit my budget? This includes the monthly premium, as well as out-of-pocket costs like deductibles, copays and coinsurance for doctors’ visits, hospital stays and other health services. Are my favorite doctors, hospitals and pharmacies in the plan’s network? Are my prescription drugs covered and what are they going to cost? With these three pieces of critical information, consumers can begin the process of narrowing down their plan options and finding the one that’s right for their budget and specific health needs. In addition to the basics, like coverage for doctors and prescription medications, most Medicare Advantage plans offer a variety of additional benefits that can create further value. Examples include dental, vision, hearing, fitness membership, over-the-counter products, transportation to and from doctors’ visits and even healthy foods. To begin the process of selecting a plan, people should go to Medicare.gov. Once there, they can enter their zip code and see all the Medicare plans available in their area. To learn more about Aetna plans and find some resources to help you understand your Medicare options, visit AetnaMedicare.com. About Terri Swanson As President of Medicare for Aetna, a CVS Health company, Terri oversees the sales, operations and business strategy for Aetna’s robust portfolio of Medicare Advantage plans, Medicare prescription drug plans and Medicare Supplement plans. Terri is proud to lead a team that advocates for the older adult population, helping nearly 11 million Aetna Medicare members nationwide achieve their best health.

San Francisco 49ers vs Minnesota Vikings Promo Codes San Francisco 49ers vs Minnesota Vikings Preview The U.S. Bank Stadium in Minnesota will host week seven of the NFL when the San Fransisco 49ers come to town to face the Minnesota Vikings. This is set to be a huge clash for both sides looking to pick up another win this season. The 49ers come into this game off the back of a disappointing 19-17 loss to the Cleveland Browns. This result ended a five-game winning streak in which they beat the likes of the Steelers, Rams, Giants, Cardinals, and Cowboys. This brings the 49er’s season record to five wins and one loss in six games, a record they will look to improve on by getting back to winning ways. The Vikings come into this game off the back of a 19-13 win against the Bears. This result brings the Viking’s season record to two wins and four losses in six games so far. The Vikings have not been in great form so far this season, and they will surely be looking to build on their recent victory over the Bears. Regarding the all-time record between these two sides, the Vikings hold the edge with a 22-20-1 record against the Vikings. This is surely a record that the 49ers will be confident of improving on with a win against the Vikings. Will the Vikings improve their current season form and build on their recent win, or will the 49ers come out on top?
