No Remote Identification, no flying. Remote ID Becomes Mandatory for Drone Pilots in the EU and will reshape the commercial use of drones

Dronetag

Most pilots will need drones equipped with the built-in RID feature or use RID transmitters attached to the drone body. There is not much time left to comply. In its latest official statement, EASA affirmed that RID will become mandatory for all pilots in the EU. All drones flying in the Specific category (advanced operation including BVLOS, over 25 kg drones, dropping material or flying higher than 120 meters, for example) and all drones with class marks operating in the Open category (mostly leisure drone activities and low-risk commercial activities) will be required to operate with an active and up-to-date RID system. There are two ways to satisfy this condition: flying a C-class drone with RID built-in (C1, C2, C3, C5, C6) or retrofitting older drone models with a RID module attached to the drone body. RID technologies allow authorities and any member of the public to identify drones remotely using a smartphone app or dedicated receiver. Identification data transmitted may include the drone’s serial number, operator registration number, remote pilot position or, if not available, take-off point, and drone’s location. The main goal of RID adoption is to enhance the safety of unmanned aircraft systems operations. Dronetag is Ready for the New Regulation For pilots who must purchase the required RID module for their drone to stay compliant in 2024, the Dronetag company has the solution ready. “Our Dronetag Beacon is one of the first devices listed on the EASA website as fully compliant with the new regulation,” describes Lukas Brchl, CEO of Dronetag, what his company offers. According to his words, pilots should not ignore the upcoming change: “To avoid problems that framed the start of RID in the USA earlier this year, drone operators should get their RID module in advance if they want to use their drones in 2024 safely. The production capacities of all suppliers are limited, so my only advice is to act now. Dronetag team put immense effort into scaling production to the maximum, but we already accept orders with deliveries at the end of January 2024.” Dronetag also offers an OEM solution tailored for drone manufacturers, seamlessly integrating Remote ID functionality into newly manufactured drones. The compact and cost-effective DRI module ensures immediate compliance, functioning effortlessly right out of the box. Furthermore, Dronetag extends its support to Drone manufacturers, facilitating the certification process with the EASA and guaranteeing compliance with the latest Remote ID regulations for drone sales within the EU. Devices manufactured by Dronetag offer compliance with new regulations and add advanced benefits for pilots in the form of hi-tech features such as flight logging, live flight data measuring and unmanned traffic management tools, to name a few. The Czech company offers a free, unique multiplatform application as a part of their end-to-end solution. According to customers in the US, Dronetag devices deliver one of the longest battery life on the market, packed in lightweight and miniature yet variable devices. Direct or Network RID? Based on Brchl’s recommendation, the Direct RID modules will be the most suitable devices for most pilots. In the Dronetag portfolio, such a device is called the Dronetag Beacon, which transmits identification data via Bluetooth to the drone's nearby surroundings. Professional pilots might appreciate advanced features offered by Network RID devices like Dronetag Mini, which will be compatible with U-Space operations planned in the near future. American Leader Expanding to Taiwan & Asia-Pacific Region Dronetag is currently active in more than 30 countries on four continents and is already coordinating flights across the globe. After similar FAA regulations for the USA went live in September 2023 ( Enforcement got extended for Six Months, literally hours before the rule efficiency, causing challenges for the whole drone market), Dronetag has become the leading supplier of RID devices for commercial drone operators in the USA. “Dronetag covers 70 % of RID device supplies to the American market. In November 2023, we closed a deal with the Drone Nerds, one of the leading drone distributors in the US, which strengthened our position. And we believe that even European drone pilots will find our devices handy and well-crafted,” shares Brchl. The list of recent successes goes on; Dronetag has also been selected by NATO - Defence Innovation Accelerator for the North Atlantic (DIANA) to its program, where the most exciting innovators developing groundbreaking technologies create more than just innovation; the goal is to bring real positive social impact. Dronetag is a manufacturer of Remote Identification devices and platforms for drone pilots and manufacturers. Its add-on transmitters enrich existing drones with a Remote ID capability, while modules are used by manufacturers who built them directly into their drones' internal circuits. Dronetag devices transmit identification and location data to other airspace participants via the Dronetag App, which offers advanced fleet management tools to professional pilots. The company’s vision of safer airspace relies on innovative unmanned traffic management and digitally visible drones.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Londonderry, NH Wins Business of the Year

Minuteman Press International Inc

For over 8 years and counting, Bob Bean has been the proud owner of the Minuteman Press franchise in Londonderry, New Hampshire located at 44 Nashua Road, Unit 18. When Bob purchased the business in October of 2015, he followed the Minuteman Press system and immediately became involved with several community groups and organizations. Thanks to Bob’s hard work and dedication, Minuteman Press in Londonderry has won the Business of the Year award from the Greater Derry Londonderry Chamber of Commerce. Bob accepted the award at the special awards dinner that was held on Oct. 12, 2023 at the Tupelo Music Hall in Derry NH. Bob shares his humble reaction to winning the award and provides his insights on the importance of being an active member of local groups in order to build relationships and generate referrals. He also talks about his journey to Minuteman Press and how his passion for helping others drives him today. What does it mean to you to win Business of the Year? H ow are you active in your community? Bob Bean: “Receiving the Business of the Year is a humbling experience. It was a surprise, I did not know that we had made such an impact in the Chamber and business community for this recognition. We have just tried to provide services to the businesses and the community to the best of our ability. It is great to be recognized and know that we are doing a good job with in the communities that we serve. I am involved in two local Chambers, member of the Rotary Club of Londonderry, and have been an active member in BNI for 8 years. I have made many connections with a lot of the non-profits in the area and work with them to help with their needs and support their functions. With the local rotary we have sponsored Christmas on the Commons, Senior High School Graduation Banners have donated to many non-profits and helped with fuel assistance during the winter months. I am also involved with the Freemasons in the state.” How would you best describe your community? Bob Bean: “ The Derry/Londonderry community are the largest two towns that are in the chamber and we have several smaller towns in the chamber also. New Hampshire does not have a lot of large metropolitan areas; it is made up more of small towns that are convenient to bordering states. Other than small businesses and small business owners, the majority of the communities are made up of people that work out of state. The people and businesses in the community are open and always look for ways to help each other when possible. As business owners, we all want to support each other and do what we can to see that we can grow and thrive.” What are some of the key ways you’ve grown your business? Bob Bean: “Networking is the key that has worked for us. Since 2015, I have been a member of the chamber and of BNI. I have always been very active in the networking area by going to meetings, ribbon-cuttings, events, and visiting businesses. We took advantage of the upgraded minuteman.com website to get some traffic through online channels. One of the other biggest ways we’ve built the business is through referrals from our customers and the organizations we work with.” What are your high-demand products and services? Bob Bean: “We have been able to provide direct mail services for many of our clients; this has been a big part of the business over the last few years especially during the pandemic. We also do a lot of marketing catalogs and Playbills for several theater groups and music groups.” What was your previous background? Why did you choose Minuteman Press? Bob Bean: “I was in the computer industry for almost 40 years. Most of my career was in management both in manufacturing and support. I was a Field Service Representative for a computer company for many years. Then, for 20 years, I was a Technical Support Manager for a supermarket chain. I chose Minuteman Press because of the research I did on the company and talking to the Regional Vice President and several store owners.” What has the support from Minuteman Press been like for you? Bob Bean: “Minuteman Press International support has been good on all levels. When I have a question, we can usually get an answer quickly. When there is an issue, support has been good at assisting in resolving the issue.” What are the biggest personal and professional rewards of owning your business? Bob Bean: “Personal and professional goals are similar in that I enjoy helping people and organizations. This business has given me the chance to connect with many more people and organizations to be able to help and give my knowledge and experience to them so that they can succeed.” What advice would you give to other business owners right now? Bob Bean: “Get involved with your local Chamber of Commerce and BNI Networking Group. These two are very critical to the growth and success of the business. Also, look into other organizations and groups like the Exchange, Rotary, Kiwanis, or whatever is in your area and local to your business. But do not just join these groups; get involved and be active in what is going on with the groups and be involved in the community. You get out of them what you put into them, so if you are active and visible then you will be the person or business that others will seek out and rely on for help and advice.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Londonderry, NH, visit https://minuteman.com/us/locations/nh/londonderry/ Learn more about #1 rated Minuteman Press franchise opportunities and read Minuteman Press franchise reviews at https://minutemanpressfranchise.com.

CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT FILED AGAINST KENVUE INC. (NYSE: KVUE)

Levi & Korsinsky LLP

Kenvue Inc. (NYSE: KVUE) is down over 25% from its debut earlier this year in May 2023. Formed from the separation of Johnson & Johnson’s Consumer Health business, the company was billed as the world’s largest pure-play consumer health company with annual revenues of over $15 billion from brands such as Tylenol, Neutrogena, Listerine, Aveeno, and Nicorette. While for many the investment thesis has yet to pan out, investors with losses stand to benefit from recent class action litigation seeking to recover investment losses. In November 2021, Johnson & Johnson announced its plan to spin-off its Consumer Health business. Eighteen months later, Kevnue completed its initial public offering and began trading on the New York Stock Exchange under the ticker symbol “KVUE”. The initial public offering generated net proceeds of $4.2 billion and resulted in over 1.9 billion publicly-listed Kenvue shares. Johnson & Johnson, however, retained ownership of approximately 90% of those shares for several months. In August 2023, Johnson & Johnson released the shares to its shareholders through an exchange offer. Kenvue’s initial public offering was underwritten by the largest banks on Wall Street, including the likes of Goldman Sachs, J.P. Morgan, Deutsche Bank, Citigroup, UBS, and so on. Analysts at many of these firms initiated coverage with enthusiasm. J.P. Morgan, for example, initiated at “overweight” with a price target of $29/share ( i.e., $7/share over the $22/share initial public offering price). Their support for the stock was based primarily on an investment thesis that included top-line growth, expanding margins, strong cash flow, and experienced management. Absent from the fanfare was any discussion of phenylephrine and the risks it posed to Kenvue in terms of adverse regulatory action. Phenylephrine is an active ingredient in many over-the-counter decongestant medications. Kenvue uses phenylephrine in a number of its products, including Sudafed PE, Benadryl Allergy Plus Congestion, and Tylenol Sinus + Headache. On September 12, 2023, the Nonprescription Drugs Advisory Committee of the U.S. Food and Drug Administration voted unanimously that phenylephrine was ineffective as a nasal decongestant when taken orally. This finding could result in the removal of several of Kenvue’s products from store shelves and, in turn, a substantial loss of revenue they would have otherwise generated for the company and its shareholders. News of the FDA’s decision prompted an immediate sell-off in Kenvue shares adding to downward pressure already in the market from ongoing acetaminophen litigation. Investors who suffered investment losses because of the announcement are questioning why management did not provide more information in Kenvue’s initial public offering documents about the risks its reliance on phenylephrine had on company revenues. While the FDA has been evaluating the efficacy of phenylephrine for some years, Johnson & Johnson and Kenvue said nothing of it in the registration statement or prospectus they used to take the company public. Kenvue now faces class action litigation for alleged violations of the federal securities laws. The class action complaint alleges that Kenvue and its management neglected to disclose material information concerning the risks arising from phenylephrine and the potential for adverse regulatory action. If the lawsuit is successful, investors could recover investment losses they incurred from their Kenvue shares. For those that paid top-dollar for the stock during the initial public offering, recovering these losses would undoubtedly improve their overall position given where the stock currently trades. Kenvue shareholders that suffered losses are encouraged to learn more about how the class action lawsuit may benefit them and whether to seek to become a lead plaintiff representing the class of Kenvue shareholders. Levi & Korsinsky, LLP is a leading plaintiffs’ law firm that has recovered billions of dollars for defrauded investors in global securities litigation. The firm is exclusively dedicated to fighting for aggrieved shareholders and consumers, and obtaining redress from those who have harmed them. With over 80 years of combined partner experience litigating complex securities actions and over 30 lawyers in five offices. The firm has a successful track record of protecting shareholder rights while setting ground-breaking precedent by tackling cases that require substantial resources, time and tenacity, thus resulting in greater investor recoveries.

Hearing Necessary to “Shed Light” on Repeated Misrepresentations from Those Defending FOX from FCC Petition

Raynor Ave.

Supporters of the Media and Democracy Project’s (MAD) Petition to Deny the broadcast license renewal application for FOX Corp-owned television station FOX 29 Philadelphia (WTXF) submitted joint informal comments to the Federal Communications Commission (FCC) reiterating the evidence in support of holding a hearing into the matter. The supporters sought to address a series of misrepresentations circulating within the media and on Capitol Hill that follow from the same playbook FOX employed to undermine the 2020 election. Among other things, these comments clearly state that MAD’s petition is non-partisan and not about politics, not about speech, does not threaten Philadelphians’ access to Sunday Eagles NFL games, and will establish only an extremely narrow and limited precedent. The filing also called on the FCC to grant MAD’s motion to compel FOX to produce key discovery from recent litigations saying, “not requiring the production of those documents would be tantamount to looking the other way.” The group of seven—including former media veterans and FCC officials—concluded their filing with the following: “Because of Dominion record evidence (including internal emails and texts) the whole world watched Rupert Murdoch, Lachlan Murdoch, and FOX acknowledge the truth that the 2020 election was not stolen, debate the cost in viewers and revenues of reporting that truth to their viewers, and make a business decision to lie to them instead. The whole world also watched the tragic consequences of that business decision. Judge Davis called them out on it. The question is what the Commission will do.” To debunk scare tactics employed by Fox allies who have asserted FCC action against WTFX would deprive Philadelphians of the Eagles’ Sunday games, the commenters provided a declaration from former NFL media executive Frank Hawkins, who explained that in light of longstanding NFL TV contract provisions “[t]his assertion is at best uninformed, and at worst misinformation.” The joint informal comments were filed by Milo Vassallo, MAD’s Executive Director; Alfred Sikes, former Republican Chairman of the FCC; Ervin Duggan, former Democratic Commissioner of the FCC and former President of the Public Broadcasting Service; Jamie Kellner, Founding President of the Fox Broadcasting Company; William Kristol, former Editor of Rupert Murdoch’s The Weekly Standard; William Reyner, former Lead Regulatory and Commercial Counsel for Rupert Murdoch/News Corporation/Fox; and Preston Padden, former Executive of Fox Broadcasting Company and Former Lead Lobbyist for Rupert Murdoch/News Corporation/Fox. A copy of the joint informal comment is available here. A link to MAD’s initial Petition to Deny is available here. The Media and Democracy Project: MAD is a non-partisan, all-volunteer, grassroots organization focused on strengthening a free and independent media in the public interest. MAD aims to improve our national discourse so that American voters can engage in informed decision-making. As part of that goal, MAD has an interest in the responsibility of journalists and media to report fully, accurately, and fairly on the electoral process and the outcome of elections.

Women and Alzheimer’s Disease Subject of Giving Tuesday Webinar

Alzheimer’s Disease Research Foundation

Cure Alzheimer’s Fund will host Dr. Liisa Galea for a Giving Tuesday webinar on her research into women and Alzheimer’s disease. In this pre-recorded webinar, Dr. Galea presents her research on sex-based differences into the causes of Alzheimer's disease and discusses her findings with Meg Smith, CEO of Cure Alzheimer's Fund. Dr. Liisa Galea is the Treliving Family Chair in Women’s Mental Health at the Centre for Addiction and Mental Health (CAMH) in Toronto, Canada and a Professor of Psychiatry at the University of Toronto. Dr. Galea is a world-renowned expert in sex hormone influences on brain and behavior, with a focus on dementia and stress-related psychiatric disorders. Her research examines the intersection of hormones, and stress on brain plasticity in males and females. “Women develop Alzheimer's disease at twice the rate of men. Dr. Galea’s research into why women are more susceptible to Alzheimer’s and what is driving increased risk is impressive,” said CEO Smith. “She is a tireless advocate for women’s health research and for sex and gender-based analysis to improve cognitive aging for both women and men. We are lucky to hear from her.” “There is a lot of talk about precision medicine, the idea that we can tailor treatments based on our genes. But we rarely talk about how different treatments might be needed to combat neurodegenerative diseases like Alzheimer’s based on our sex,” said Galea. “The top three risk factors for late onset sporadic Alzheimer’s disease include APOE4 genotype and female sex. If you are an APOE4 carrier and a female you have an even greater risk of developing Alzheimer’s disease than if you are male carrier. Why not harness this information to see whether we can discover new therapies to combat this devastating illness. It’s time we figured out how sex plays a role, not only in the risk and progression of Alzheimer’s disease, but whether or not, different treatments may need to be tailored by sex.” For more information and to view the webinar, please visit Cure Alzheimer’s Fund at CureAlz.org and https://bit.ly/49jqQuO for the webinar. The webinar takes place during Alzheimer’s Awareness Month in November. It is estimated that more than 6.5 million Americans are currently living with Alzheimer’s disease two-thirds of those who are afflicted are women. It is projected that the share of adults 65 and older in the US population will rise to 22 percent by 2050. With age as the biggest risk factor, Alzheimer’s disease is poised to place an unmanageable financial burden on the US healthcare system, caregivers, and loved ones. About Cure Alzheimer’s Fund Cure Alzheimer’s Fund is a non-profit dedicated to funding the most promising research to prevent, slow, or reverse Alzheimer’s disease. Since its founding in 2004, Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has provided grants to the world’s leading researchers and contributed more than $180 million to research. Its funded initiatives have been responsible for many key breakthroughs in understanding the causes and pathology of Alzheimer’s disease. Cure Alzheimer’s Fund has received a 4-star rating for more than 12 consecutive years from Charity Navigator.

Putting the Brakes on Distracted Driving This Holiday Season

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/-m__hB55lSE The holiday season is here – and that means there will be an increase of motorists on U.S. roadways. With more families hitting the road, it’s an important time to discuss the dangers and consequences of distracted driving. The 2023 Travelers Risk Index on distracted driving found that 70% of consumers feel that distracted driving is more of a problem now than it was over the past few years. Following are additional highlights from the 2023 Travelers Risk Index: · 80% make or receive calls. · 57% use handheld devices. · 28% post on social media. · 27% take photos or videos. The Travelers Institute, the public policy division at Travelers, has been raising awareness of the dangers of distracted driving through its Every Second Matters® campaign – an initiative that began in 2017. Since the campaign started, the Travelers Institute has published a number of whitepapers and resources to help consumers understand the risks and learn how to be safe behind the wheel. The Travelers Institute was joined by Cambridge Mobile Telematics (CMT), the world’s largest telematics solution provider, which regularly publishes new distracted driving data insights and road safety reports throughout the year. According to its new report, The State of Distracted Driving in 2023 & the Future of Road Safety, CMT reports that the 23% surge in distracted driving in 2022 caused an additional 420,000 crashes, 1,000 fatalities, and $10 billion in economic damages. Additionally, a new analysis from CMT shows that distracted driving increased by 9.2% on Thanksgiving Day from 2020 to 2022. For more information, visit TRAVELERSINSTITUTE.ORG AND CMT.AI.
