TRUST SCIENCE PLEDGE CALLS FOR PUBLIC TO ENGAGE IN SCIENTIFIC LITERACY

International Day of Light Steering Committee

After a year in which scientific breakthroughs are helping countries return to a sense of normality, a new pledge offers the general public a path to draw attention to the importance of scientific literacy. The Trust Science pledge, a worldwide campaign to promote support for the scientific process and acknowledge the many benefits of science for society is a first step to recognizing the vital role science plays in improving quality of life and combatting scientific misinformation. Scientific literacy, or the understanding of science, its methodology, observations and theories, starts with appreciating the wonder and advancements of science. One current example is the progress made with vaccines, but the past year has seen many other scientific developments, specifically in light science. These include advances in high-speed communications enabling families to stay connected through videoconferencing, faster access to online media content and breakthroughs in astronomy and planetary exploration such as NASA’s Perseverance Rover landing on Mars in February. With the rise of disinformation, declaring support for the scientific process provides a concrete way to stand up for science and the benefits it brings to society. The pledge, launched in celebration of the UNESCO International Day of Light on 16 May, aims to promote support for the scientific process and to acknowledge the many benefits of science for society. Nobel and Breakthrough laureates, scientific leaders, CEOs and everyday citizens worldwide have signed the pledge, taking a significant step in building scientific literacy and trust in the scientific method. “We all share responsibility for seeking out trustworthy scientific information,” said Dr. Jess Wade, a physicist working in the Department of Materials at Imperial College London. “Before sharing information about a scientific claim, we can check the source of claims, research the credibility of the author and double-check the facts with fact-checking organizations.” The pledge complements other strategies for identifying fact from fiction. A first step in achieving scientific literacy is the careful questioning of any statement that is positioned as a scientific fact. Below are three ways the general public can check the validity of something they may have read, heard or seen online as a fact: 1. Embrace initial skepticism and check the source of the claims. 2. Watch out for rhetoric. A credible author will cite facts and sources and the results of scientific research rather than “science” itself. 3. Double-check the facts with fact-checking organizations. The Trust Science campaign is organized by the IEEE Photonics Society, SPIE, the international society for optics and photonics, and The Optical Society (OSA), together with the International Day of Light Steering Committee.

M Moser Associates Launches New Office in Denver, CO

M Moser Associates

M Moser Associates, a global architecture, design and engineering firm, today announced the opening of its Denver, CO office. This move is inspired by the region’s economic growth and surging client demand for business-centric architecture and design solutions. M Moser has created holistic, human-centric spaces for many of the world’s most successful companies globally over the past 40 years. “Denver is an attractive regional hub given its central location in the U.S., the access it provides to a deep pool of talent, and its rich history in modern office design” said John Sellery, Group Managing Director at M Moser and proud Denver resident. “The market has become a magnet for many of M Moser’s high-growth clients and industries — from technology and science, healthcare, oil and gas, aerospace and more — that require a new approach to architecture and design — one that seamlessly integrates the physical, digital, and social needs of their employees.” The Denver office will be run by Eric Lind (Director), a self-proclaimed Denver “transplant native” living in the city for more than 30 years. He is partnering with Laura Walsh (Senior Associate, Client Services), a third generation Coloradan who has lived in Denver her entire life. Together, they bring a wide variety of expertise in architecture and design along with a deep understanding of the region’s culture and business environment, and a true appreciation for the lifestyle that Denver provides. In 2019, Forbes ranked Denver the fourth best city in the country for business and careers, and the region consistently ranks as a top place to live. M Moser’s move also comes at a time when workplaces are broaching a return-to-the-office following a year of major changes in how, when and where people work. The region’s steadfast commitment to work-life balance and employee wellbeing makes it a fertile ground for designing world-class environments and strategies for dynamic, fast-growing companies. “People who live in and around Denver place a premium on the connection to the outdoors and the natural beauty of their physical surroundings — both of which heavily influence how we design to attract the best and brightest talent in the area,” noted Lind. “Whether gazing at the Rocky Mountains from your office window or venturing out for a hike, our relationship with nature and how it defines workplace cultures throughout the city is what makes our job so special and rewarding.” The entrepreneurial and experimental mindset that drives success in the Mile High City aligns with M Moser’s approach to design explorations and helping organizations and their employees realize their growth potential. With a local team of long-time residents supported by the collective creativity of the global organization, M Moser Denver is positioned to make an indelible impact on the direction of architecture, design, and client service in the market. M Moser’s Denver offices are located at 1001 Bannock Street, Suite 231, Denver, CO. For more information on the firm and career opportunities, visit https://www.mmoser.com. M Moser Associates is a global architecture, design, strategy and delivery firm with more than 1,000 professionals networked across Asia, India, Europe, and the Americas.

Faith for All Premier Collection Revolutionizes Fashion Through Faith

Faith for All

The first collection of its kind, Faith For All, is an inspiring showcase at the intersection of fashion and faith. Faith For All magnifies the things closest to your heart, allowing you to hold on to your faith wherever life takes you. Irwin Sternberg is an award-winning creator of the iconic Jerry Garcia Neckwear. He presents a lifestyle company, Faith For All. Capturing brilliant, never-before-seen images of authentic faith-based symbols and icons, Sternberg redesigns limited-edition collections of bracelets, masks, apparel, and lighting fixtures. These unique and beautiful designs, microscopic images, of faith-based symbolic icons contain verses such as the Masada Rock, The Dead Sea, Holy Water, Frankincense, Wine, and more. Stunning and subtle, these images emphasize the universal nature of spirituality. It’s worth noting that Sternberg, a marketing visionary and philanthropist, has generated millions of dollars over the years for such dynamic charities as The Christopher & Dana Reeve Foundation, Mothers Against Drunk Driving - MADD, The Jimmy V Foundation for Cancer Research (founded by Jim Valvano) and many other. Sternberg’s life highlight occurred alongside the Dalai Lama, who presented Sternberg with a Tibetan prayer scarf. Together they honored the contributions toward Tibetan health care through Sternberg’s Ties for Tibet collections. "This blending of fashion and faith has been running through my mind for the better part of my life, and it's glorious to see it come to fruition," Sternberg reflected. “Faith for All will empower people to wear and surround themselves with their faith...” The use of photomicrography to capture beautiful abstract explosions of crystallized patterns and colors from authentic images of spiritual icons unite science, education, and health. "I've known Irwin for over 20 years. He has a wonderful knack for creating the unique to energize people, drawing them in and inspiring them," says Martin Savage, longtime CNN broadcaster. "His latest breakthrough merging fashion and spirituality comes at a time when many in the world need to feel uplifted. It's a great idea, and I'm not surprised - Irwin's got a million of them." Faith For All tells unique stories that re-contextualize how people express their beliefs, showing each spiritual icon’s universal relevance. And how the meaning of each spiritual icon holds. These subtle, understated expressions of faith allow the wearer to feel the beauty of their spirituality. Each new Faith for All collection will honor different religions with their meaningful icons. Of course, Faith For All products also raise funds for worthy causes, the Covid-19 response fund and Biobus, a mobile laboratory that helps students discover, explore and pursue the field of science.

Jock MKT Secures $10 Million in Series A Funding to Accelerate its Growth as the Stock Market for Sports

Jock MKT

Jock MKT (Jock Market), the sports gaming app that combines the best of daily fantasy sports and retail stock trading, announced it has raised $10 million in Series A funding. The round was led by New York-based venture capital firm Left Lane Capital, along with continued participation from existing investors, including Will Ventures and Ryan Moore, a current board member of DraftKings and Accomplice founding partner. Founded in 2017 and launched in 2020 by Co-Founder and CEO Tyler Carlin, Jock MKT has created a new and innovative daily fantasy sports gaming format. Jock MKT is a fantasy sports gaming app where users can make real money buying and selling virtual shares of athletes. Their main differentiator is their cash market format – this unique offering gives users more flexibility and optionality versus typical daily fantasy contests. Users can join at any time and for any dollar amount. They can buy and sell shares of athletes in real-time, cash out early by selling to another user in-game or hold to the end and receive fixed Jock MKT payouts tied to final player rankings based on overall fantasy scoring. Each cash market starts with an “Initial Player Offering,” or an IPO, where users have their first opportunity to bid on shares prior to any contest. Jock MKT’s skill-based gaming format combines the best of daily fantasy sports products with the user interface and mechanics of stock trading and retail investing apps. The result is a unique and engaging second screen game that attracts both dedicated sports fans and retail investors alike. Jock MKT officially launched with the NFL, NBA, and the PGA Tour in September of 2020, as many sports returned to their respective playing schedules amidst the pandemic. They added the NHL and MLB in 2021 at the start of each season. “We look forward to establishing Jock MKT as the main trading platform for fantasy sports,” said Tyler Carlin, Co-Founder and CEO of Jock MKT. “This funding marks a big milestone for the team, and we’re excited to expand our product offerings to additional platforms. We’ll be looking to add more sports and features to Jock MKT, plus expand into Canada and other states in the near term.” “Jock MKT has a unique and novel product offering relative to its daily fantasy sports peers,” said Matthew Miller from Left Lane Capital, who has joined the Jock MKT Board of Directors. “We’ve been incredibly impressed by Tyler and his team, and we look forward to taking this journey in building a next-generation sports trading platform to create stronger engagement between sports fans and teams/players.” “We have evaluated dozens of opportunities in the daily fantasy sports and sports gaming category, and Jock MKT has proven to be an outlier in their strength of product, user engagement and growth,” said Harley Miller, Managing Partner at Left Lane Capital. Jock MKT is well-positioned to capture evolving sports engagement trends as fans seek new ways to follow their favorite teams and players. One of the key indicators of Jock MKT’s success is the length of time spent and engagement in the app. Users spend more than 1.5 hours in the app per cash market – more than half the duration of an average NBA or NHL game – and the largest cash market to date was the 2021 Master’s Tournament. This funding will enable Jock MKT to continue building out its innovative product offering, expand into all 44 eligible states and Canada, and hire across the entire organization to support accelerating growth. About Jock MKT Headquartered in Boston and launched in 2020, Jock MKT ( JockMKT.com ) is a skill-based fantasy gaming platform where users can make real money – every minute, every second, of every game. Inspired by a traditional stock exchange, Jock MKT allows users to buy and sell shares of athletes in real-time. Jock MKT was co-founded by Tyler Carlin and investors include Left Lane Capital, Will Ventures, Ryan Moore, Brandon Adams, Benjie Cherniak, Tim McSweeney, and Alumni Ventures Group. Available in the U.S. in 35 states, Jock MKT offers gaming options for events tied to the NFL, NBA, MLB, NHL, and PGA Tour. About Left Lane Capital Left Lane Capital is a New York-based 'breakout' growth equity firm that invests in high-growth internet & consumer technology companies that build long-lasting customer relationships.

Senior Moments: 6 Ways Our Dogs Remind Us They’re Getting Older

Lintbells

Pets, like people are living longer than ever. Sure, we may notice their handsome grey muzzles, but are there other signs pet owners may be missing? According to the Dog Aging Project, senior dogs experience many of the same health conditions humans do including cognitive and mobility issues. As responsible pet owners it’s important to look out for signs of aging and tend to any subtle changes sooner than later. Our senior dogs who may not have the same skip in their step as they did in their younger years, bring no less joy into our daily lives! Veterinarian Dr. Craig Prior, B.V.Sc., C.V.J., member of YuMOVE veterinary advisory board offers signs for dog owners to look out for that may warrant additional attention. The Tell-TAIL signs to look out for: Posture – Are you noticing any changes in your dog’s body shape such as muscle loss or other changes in the way they walk? Gaining Weight – Is your dog starting to look a bit pudgier? Attitude – Has your dog unexpectedly changed the way they react to you, family or other dogs? Willingness – Is your dog still up for walks, for games, able to get in and out of the car easily and barking at every little thing? Slowing Down – Does it appear that overall energy level has slowed down or getting up and lying down takes longer these days? Jumping - Does your dog hesitate or show signs of struggle when jumping up on the couch, the bed or in and out of the car? Take Action: Seeing the signs of aging doesn’t mean it’s too late. There are steps pet owners can take to help slow the signs of aging and keep the “Senior Moments” at bay, but the earlier addressed, the better. Taking proactive steps to support our four-legged friends can make all the difference. Making small changes in the home to be easier to get around, changing your walking routine to include smaller, more frequent outings, and giving proven supplements to support their joints, all help dogs age gracefully. Pet owners should talk with their veterinarian about changes to their dog’s physical and emotional behavior. Interviews, additional veterinarian advice and supporting documentation available upon request.

Climate & Capital and Science4Data launch Climate Media Signal, the first AI- driven market media intelligence platform

Science4Data

Climate & Capital Media (Climate & Capital), a global media organization dedicated to driving climate action, and Science4Data, an advanced AI-driven analysis company, are partnering to introduce Climate Media Signal, the first public AI platform analyzing ESG and climate media trends using the world’s most advanced data tools. The partnership combines Climate & Capital’s pioneering climate journalism with Science4Data’s proprietary analysis of climate and ESG related trends, sentiment and risk. “We worked with Climate & Capital Media to create Climate Media Signal to help clients anticipate and get ahead of news trends and introduce intelligence on top emerging trends facing businesses,” says Tsveta Petrova, a Columbia University researcher who originally partnered with Science4Data as Eurasia Group’sData and Analytics practice leader. Now Petrova is helping Science4Data develop several key ESG initiatives. “We know that media sentiment is a key driver of business and policy. ESG, including climate, is one of today’s most important trends to monitor closely,” Petrova continues. Climate Media Signal uses intelligent crawlers to curate, tune and collect climate and ESG semantic information from tens of thousands of media sites. Articles are then analyzed by advanced Natural Language Processing and Machine Learning Algorithms to derive insights and best-in-class visualization and integration analysis wherever needed. Through the partnership, readers will have the opportunity to interactively explore the contextual language of climate across targeted news and social media channels. ( Click here to learn more.) “With the distorting effects of social media and the fragmentation of global headlines, we think it is important to provide our readers an unbiased, data-driven view of how the media is covering ESG and climate-related trends,” says Climate & Capital founder Peter McKillop. “With the help of Science4data’s platform, we will be able to translate media metadata into actionable insights for investors to act on.” The idea was developed by Chris Dhanraj, managing principal of investments at CLA (CliftonLarsonAllen) and former head of investment strategy at BlackRock iShares, and Peter McKillop, who was the global head of media analysis at BlackRock and global head of iShares communications. “Media is playing a disproportionate role in shaping global perceptions on climate change and ESG, and yet no one has been publishing metadata on how to interpret and act on emerging mega trends,” says Dhanraj. About Climate & Capital Media Climate & Capital Media is a global media organization that provides news, information and connections to bring together people and capital to solve climate change. Its news service develops engaging, well-reported profiles that deliver practical investment and leadership insights on the fast-growing community of businesses addressing global warming and building a sustainable climate economy.
