COLORESCIENCE® INTRODUCES BARRIER PRO™ COLLECTION: 1-STEP CLEANSER AND ESSENTIAL MOISTURIZER.

Colorescience

Colorescience®, a leading dermatologist-recommended specialty skincare company, is launching an innovative new collection of skin barrier-focused solutions, starting with two daily staples: Barrier Pro™ 1-Step Cleanser and Barrier Pro™ Essential Moisturizer. Developed in collaboration with skin health professionals, this powerful but gentle cleanser and innovative moisturizer help to enhance skin’s natural resilience and radiance by strengthening and maintaining the skin’s protective barrier. Colorescience Barrier Pro™ provides ultra-protective, skin barrier health achieved through intense multi-level hydration & moisture retention, a balanced microbiome, and free radical-fighting antioxidants. Skin starts and ends each day strengthened, supported and more resilient with the Colorescience Barrier Pro™ collection of products. Founder and medical director of Lucere Dermatology and Laser Clinic, and Board-certified dermatologist Dr. Zaki Taher is impressed by the complete approach to improving the skin barrier. “ The integrity of the skin’s barrier is pivotal to its overall health, functioning as the foremost shield against environmental factors. Our current understanding underscores that maintaining the skin’s barrier necessitates more than mere hydration. It is gratifying to note that the Barrier Pro line takes a comprehensive approach to skin health by focusing not only on augmenting hydration levels but also on supporting the skin microbiome and bolstering its resilience. This multifaceted care is crucial for the skin’s capacity to adapt and respond to external aggressors, such as blue light exposure. Utilizing such advanced skincare solutions can significantly contribute to healthier, more robust skin.” Barrier Pro™ 1-Step Cleanser ($46) removes makeup and stubborn mineral sunscreen in a single step – no need to double cleanse. This was a must for Colorescience®, the experts in all-mineral sun protection. A multi-benefit skin barrier-boosting solution, this more-than-a-cleanser helps support skin’s microbiome with a first-of-its-kind, patented Lactobacillus Ferment, a probiotic-like ferment that creates balance by favoring the beneficial bacteria that make up the skin's microbiome and discouraging harmful bacteria. Pink Pomelo Grapefruit promotes gentle exfoliation for a softer, smoother texture without skin feeling stripped. Patricia Boland, Vice President of Research & Development at Colorescience® shares, “As a company that is known for our innovative all-mineral, water-resistant sunscreens, we have often been asked by consumers and our aesthetic professional partners how to best remove the layers of protection at the end of the day without harsh ingredients and multiple cleanses. Barrier Pro 1-Step Cleanser not only removes it all in a single step- it supports skin’s microbiome, improves resilience to damage, and leaves skin feeling hydrated, soothed and smooth. Used alongside Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer, these upgraded staples transform skin in a matter of days, revealing greater integrity and strength.” Barrier Pro™ Essential Moisturizer ($78 ) helps strengthen the skin’s protective barrier, support and balance the microbiome, and refine texture with a patent pending ingredient blend, resulting in a more plump, vibrant, healthy, and youthful appearance. It features an innovative tri-molecular hyaluronic acid that provides multi-layer hydration – different molecular weights of hyaluronic acid ensure lasting hydration and retention. The formula features a first-of-its-kind, patented Lactobacillus Ferment, a probiotic-like ferment that creates balance by favoring the beneficial bacteria that make up the skin's microbiome and discouraging harmful bacteria. Inclusion of a bioavailable vitamin E and hydrolyzed pea protein helps support skin’s adaptive response to UV exposure. The Essential Moisturizer also improves the skin’s adaptive response to increase protection from indoor and outdoor light, including UV and HEV (blue) light, and continues to improve the skin’s resilience and adaptive response over time. The emollient cream melts into the skin and prepares it for optimal sunscreen application. Jessie Pasquarello, advanced practice aesthetician at Robertson Cosmetic Center in Madison, WI states, “What I appreciate most about the Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer is that it optimizes the skin barrier and easily fits into a skin regimen for so many people. My patients have a range of skin concerns, from dry to oily, aging to acne and everything in between. The texture makes you want to wear it and the ingredients are proven to deliver results. When it comes to impacting skin quality and improving skin resiliency, the Barrier Pro Essential Moisturizer and the 1-Step Cleanser are unlike any others.” ABOUT COLORESCIENCE Colorescience®, the leading innovator in all-mineral sun protection, delivers transformational skincare solutions through wearable multifunctional products that provide immediate confidence and long-term visible results. Crafted for users who know that great results require daily skincare and protection, Colorescience ® uses cutting-edge technology and clinically tested formulas to ensure efficacy and provide reassurance to people of all ages, skin types, and concerns. Colorescience® products speak for themselves through their wearability, published clinical studies, and skin-healthy ingredients.

TSA Records Busiest Air Travel Day in US History

MarketJar

Airlines just survived their busiest travel season in US history, with the Transportation Security Administration (TSA) reporting a record-high screening of 2.9 million passengers on Sunday alone. 1 American Airlines announced an all-time high of approximately 6.5 million passengers during the Thanksgiving period, and its busiest day on Sunday, with over 6,100 flights. United Airlines also saw a record-breaking number of travelers, with 3.2 million flying between November 17 and November 23, leading up to Thanksgiving. The record travel day happened in spite of a cross-country storm that delayed over 900 flights at the busy Chicago O'Hare International Airport. In total, there were 7,939 delays within, into, or out of the US on Sunday. 2 Fortunately, only 55 flights were canceled, three of which were out of O’Hare. This busy travel day could become the new norm as passengers return to the skies en masse. “In 2023, we have already seen seven of the top 10 busiest travel days in TSA’s history,” said TSA Administrator David Pekoske. 3 Pekoske said the TSA would be collaborating closely with airline and airport partners leading up to the holiday season, with a goal to maintain wait time standards of under 10 minutes for TSA PreCheck® lanes and under 30 minutes for standard screening lanes. Last week, US Transportation Secretary Pete Buttigieg mentioned efforts to enhance readiness for heightened holiday travel, including the recruitment of additional air traffic controllers and the establishment of new air routes along the East Coast. Travel last year rebounded to 2019 levels, but it was marred by weather and staffing challenges, resulting in dissatisfaction and stranded travelers during the holidays. This year, even more travelers means inevitably longer lineups at security checkpoints and longer wait times at major hubs, a problem that has been getting consistently worse as travel returns to pre-pandemic highs. Fortunately, AI security tech company Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) has started implementing its HEXWAVE™ system in airports across North America to greatly improve security screening for both passengers and staff. A Fast, Contactless Screening Liberty Defense ’s HEXWAVE™ system uses a combination of AI, electromagnetic waves, and 3D imaging to effectively scan and identify potentially hazardous items, such as metal, 3D-printed plastic guns, powders, and liquids. The process is remarkably swift, requiring employees to pass through a contactless walkthrough portal without having to remove their keys or cell phones. Liberty Defense has also recently acquired licenses for millimeter wave-based High-Definition Advanced Imaging Technology (HD-AIT) body scanners and shoe scanner technologies, expanding its technology portfolio. Liberty Defense has successfully delivered a HEXWAVE™ system to the Transportation Security Administration (TSA), marking the completion of the contract under the TSA’s On-Person Screening Capability Program for screening Aviation Workers. "Over the past several months, we have been working closely with major US airports, including LAX, Denver, Oakland, and others on enhancing employee screening to reduce the potential of an insider threat,” said Bill Frain, Liberty CEO. “The focus of the program is to improve the detection for a broader range of threats while also improving the throughput for a practical and efficient process. A significant number of airports will be required to improve their screening process over the next several months. We look forward to supporting the initiative and making it a seamless transition.” Given the TSA's directive to implement screening measures for aviation workers, airports need technologies that offer a comprehensive range of threat detection capabilities to meet current screening requirements and those anticipated in the future. Liberty Defense ’s superior security detection solutions are thus of great help in this matter. On November XX, Liberty Defense Holdings (TSXV:SCAN) (OTCQB:LDDFF) became a recipient of the 2023 ‘ASTORS’ Homeland Security Award from American Security Today (AST) for its HEXWAVE™ solution. The 'ASTORS' Homeland Security Awards Program honors outstanding government and vendor solutions that offer significant value and intelligence in government, homeland security, and public safety sectors.

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.

Healthy Habits for your Family This Fall. Registered Dietician Nutritionist Provides Tips to Enhance Overall Wellness

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/Z87XU8x8YEU As the daylight hours get shorter and time spent outside exercising decreases, many people focus on their diets to stay healthy and happy throughout the coming months. The U.S. Department of Agriculture recommends eating meals made up of fruits, vegetables, lean meats, and low-fat dairy products. In fact, a healthy dietary pattern can benefit all individuals regardless of age, race, ethnicity, or current health status. For picky eaters, it is recommended that parents and caregivers continue to introduce new food and flavors, while being a role model with a healthy diet. A few core elements include vegetables of all types, dark green, red and orange, beans, peas, and lentils. Whole fruits are an important dietary staple, along with whole grains. Foods packed with protein, like poultry and eggs, seafood, nuts, and soy products have also been linked to healthier outcomes. Protein helps protect and build lean muscle mass, while promoting better brain chemistry. Fitness, wellness, and nutrition experts all agree that a balanced diet helps the brain function properly. B-vitamins are key nutrients needed for making the brain chemicals known to influence how awake and energized people feel in the morning. Optimal levels of serotonin require sufficient Vitamin D, B6, folate and amino acids. Syn has compiled a list of tips to help families enhance their nutrition and wellness plans throughout the fall and winter months. DAIRY ALTERNATIVES: Syn highlights the importance of moderation for everything we put into our bodies. That’s why she recommends starting the day with breakfast, while including Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Almondmilk. “It’s a perfect dairy milk alternative. I love how it tastes and it’s delicious in cereal and smoothies,” says Syn. Almond Breeze Almondmilk is nutritious and fortified with calcium and vitamins, while being free of gluten, lactose, saturated fat, and cholesterol. Among its wide portfolio of flavors, Almond Breeze comes in unsweetened varieties, including Unsweetened Original and Unsweetened Vanilla—with all the goodness of almonds. Direct link: https://www.bluediamond.com/brand/almond-breeze Social media handles: Facebook: Blue Diamond Almond Breeze Instagram: @almondbreeze X (Twitter): @AlmondBreeze FLAVORFUL CHOICES: As a Registered Dietitian Nutritionist, Syn, is always on the lookout for ways to enhance diets with a focus on health and wellness. She says juices are another way to add a little flavor into our daily routines. Wonder Beet, formally known as Beetology, is a cold pressed juice that champions the power of beets in four different ways. Wonder Beet, formerly Beetology™, champions the power of beets in four exceptional mixes: Beet + Lemon + Ginger, Beet + Veggie, Beet + Berry, and Beet + Cherry. Known as a high-nutrition, low-calorie superfood, beets are perfect for those seeking an all-natural boost of vitality for long-lasting, clean energy. These juices contain no artificial additives or added sugars. Syn says they are “Just pure, unadulterated 100% organic ingredients, ensuring every sip is delicious, satisfying, and curiously good." Wonder Beet is part of the Wonder Juiced esteemed beverage collection made up of 100% all-natural cold-press juices originating from organic farms and picked at peak freshness, These juices are high-nutrition and low-calorie. There are no artificial additives or added sugars – just 100% organic fruits and vegetables. A great way to enjoy great flavor while getting your vitamins from the fruit and veggies. In addition to juices, Syn has a set her sights on salads. She had a series on social media called, “Salads That Aren’t Boring.” Now, the nutritionist tries to turn a salad zero into a salad hero. Her number one tip, “It really comes down to choosing your favorite greens, fruits, and veggies,” adding, “It doesn’t have to be complex, but it’s often the dressing that makes a salad taste so good.” One of her go-to dressings is the all-natural Mighty Sesame Squeeze and Serve Organic Tahini. It is made with the highest quality sesame seeds sustainably sourced. Syn says Mighty Sesame Tahini has a delicious, creamy texture that is a “better for you choice” as a dressing, dip, or topping for wraps and sandwiches. She also points out how this dressing is packed with protein and calcium. Additionally, Mighty Sesame Tahini is vegan, gluten and dairy free, kosher and halal.

Syn says it’s a good idea to add more fish to your meal plans. MOWI is a leading farm-raised Atlantic Salmon producer and is boldly challenging the status quo within the seafood industry. The Salmon is BAP certified, which is one of the highest standards in sustainability in the seafood industry. Syn says this brand is of excellent taste and quality, adding “You can feel the delicate Omega 3 element and natural oil, which so good for you in salmon.” The Fresh MOWI Atlantic Salmon comes from the farm fresh, in optimum temperature, then freshly processed and packed with care in the United States. This product is available at nationwide retailers in only 24 hours from processing. Additionally, Syn points out that the salmon comes perfectly portioned in 6 oz. slices, whether seasoned or plain varieties. “It’s got a beautiful orange color, great marbling, moist and texture. And the best thing, it is fresh and has not been frozen,” says Syn. The Skin Pack technology allows the product to breathe out, but nothing breathes in, extending the products shelf life and reduces potential damage.

Syn says that does not mean consumers have to stop snacking, they just need to snack smarter. A growing number of consumers are actively seeking ways to balance blood sugar levels, with #BloodSugar securing over 1 billion views on TikTok. To help address the need, Good Measure, a new food brand, has launched a portfolio of blood sugar-friendly snacks. The most popular Good Measure snack, the Peanut Butter & Dark Chocolate Nut Butter Bar, combines peanut chunks, seeds, dark chocolate, and rich peanut butter, resulting in a subtly sweet snack bar with creamy texture and a satisfying crunch. The holiday season can often mean overindulgence, but Good Measure Nut Butter Bars and Almond Crisps are conveniently portioned to help you control your intake and make mindful choices effortlessly. All Good Measure snacks contain five or fewer grams of Net Glycemic Carbs, ensuring little impact on blood sugar. Additionally, every snack is made with nutrient-rich ingredients to provide nutrition in every bite – all while keeping flavor front and center.

YourUpdateTV

A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/ytMbkUGV8kg It’s no secret that stress relief can get stressful for many people. Science tells us that 80% of stress relief starts in your body, not your brain. What if there was a way to bring stress relief to your fingertips with a science-backed collection of physical tools designed to activate the nervous system's calming response. Melissa Bernstein, the creative Founder behind Melissa & Doug Toys, is introducing her newest venture, Lifelines, a collection of Sensory Immersion™ tools that activate the body's natural stress relievers, your senses. For more than 30 years, Melissa conceived over 10,000 toys designed to unleash children's imagination, but behind-the-scenes she hid a lifelong struggle with anxiety, depression and stress. When she immersed her senses - she was able to break the cycle of rumination and experience the present moment in totality. That is the backstory and inspiration for Lifelines. Lifelines will offer a comprehensive suite of Sensory Immersion tools across all six senses. The first collection is focused on aroma, a powerful and science-backed category Melissa felt lacked innovation. The collection includes 45 products with 16 patents pending, spanning portable fidget tools, sensory writing, innovative diffusers, and essential oil blends. There are over 100 new products in development, including meditative art activities for adults and multi-sensorial sound and sight devices. Lifelines Grounding Stones are patent-pending handheld diffusers designed for touch, combining the power of scent with fidgeting. Fidgeting has been scientifically proven to reduce stress and improve focus. The six unique and touchable designs feature an irresistible swivel and fit perfectly in the palm, for stress relief anytime, anywhere. Lifelines sensory writing tools inspire focus and spark creativity. The Scented Colored Pencils elevate any writing experience. And the Pen Diffuser combines an innovative writing tool with four distinct aromas dispensed at your fingertips. Tactile Sensory Journals feature covers made for touch, with soothing embossed patterns inside to keep your ideas flowing. Lifelines immersive diffusers pair with any of their 20 essential oil blends to activate smell, touch, and sight. The Waves Ultrasonic Diffuser combines breathtaking scents, colorful lights, and cascading mist inspired by the ocean's tides. The Shower Diffuser and Bath Diffuser turn any bathroom into a spa-like getaway. The portable and lightweight Everyday Diffuser fits perfectly into small spaces like a drawer, car or bag with no batteries or cords required. And then there are Lifelines Essential Oil Blends, thoughtfully crafted aromas inspired by nature and curated by Melissa. This includes more than 20 different blends across five intoxicating scent families and four well- being goals: Energy, Calm, Focus, and Joy. Blends are made from naturally derived, sustainably sourced botanicals, free from parabens and dyes, and blended in the USA. All oils come with Lifelines' patent-pending Precision Pump™ for a mess-free application that dispenses the perfect amount of oil every time. Lifelines products are affordably priced from $5.99-$29.99 and available at popular retailers nationwide including Target.
