Comcast Donates Free WiFi Access to Four Nonprofits in the Twin Cities to Help Increase Digital Opportunities in the Region

Comcast Twin Cities

Comcast today announced the opening of four new Lift Zones in the Twin Cities to provide free WiFi access to families across the area. Furthering the company’s deep and longstanding commitment to advancing equity and opportunity, our new Lift Zones at the International Institute, Every Third Saturday, Al Maa’uun, and GMCC will support digital access and adoption through tech training and career building. The new Lift Zone at International Institute will also receive 250 new laptops and two privacy pods, which will be used for virtual job interviews and telehealth appointments, as needed by clients. Comcast’s Lift Zones program provides free WiFi, powered by Comcast Business, to enable students, seniors, families, and community members to get online and fully participate in the digital economy. With these four new locations, Comcast now offers over 115 Lift Zones throughout the Twin Cities. Comcast’s investments in the four partner organizations will help increase college and career readiness, especially among underserved youth; connect workers to opportunities; provide upskilling for adult learners and those already in the workforce; and close the skills – particularly digital skills – gap. “The tasks of starting a new life in a new country can be overwhelming for refugees and immigrants when they arrive. Digital literacy and lack of reliable internet access can get in the way of applying for work, participating in classes or accessing community services,” said Jane Graupman, Executive Director, International Institute of Minnesota. “Thanks to Comcast and this Lift Zone partnership, we can make this time a little easier for New Americans who contribute so much to our community.” “Helping to close the digital divide and address digital equity remain top priorities here in the Twin Cities,” said Makram El-Amin, Executive Director from Al Maa’uun. “Our city and our region have become even more dependent on broadband to learn, find work and healthcare services and so many other aspects of our daily life. Comcast’s new Lift Zones will create endless opportunities for so many individuals, families, and seniors in our community.” “We’re proud to partner with these four wonderful organizations to launch new Lift Zones to advance digital equity and workforce readiness in our most vulnerable neighborhoods,” said Kalyn Hove, Regional Senior Vice President, Comcast Midwest. “Our continued partnership with our community partners will equip individuals, families and seniors with the tools, skills and resources they need to achieve their goals.” “Helping our communities achieve digital equity is in our DNA at Comcast,” said Broderick Johnson, EVP, Public Policy, and EVP, Digital Equity, Comcast Corporation. “We’re thrilled to partner with the International Institute, Every Third Saturday, Al Maa’uun, and GMCC on our next installation of Lift Zones in the Twin Cities and to work with partners who share our same goals of closing the digital divide.” Today’s announcement is part of Project UP, Comcast’s $1 billion commitment to reach millions of people with the tools, resources, and skills needed to succeed in a digital world. Comcast’s Lift Zones complement Internet Essentials, which since 2011, has helped connect more than 10 million low-income people to the Internet at home. In Minnesota, the program has connected more than 416,000 Minnesotans. Comcast also participates in the Affordable Connectivity Program (ACP), which provides qualifying households with a $30 per month credit, or $75 per month on Tribal lands, toward their Internet and mobile services. New and existing Xfinity Internet or Internet Essentials customers can learn more about the program and sign up by visiting: About Comcast Corporation Comcast Corporation (Nasdaq: CMCSA) is a global media and technology company.

Pros and Cons of Forex Trading: Is Forex Right for You?


In the past, large financial institutions, major fund managers, large corporations and high net worth individuals were virtually the only participants in the huge forex market outside of national central banks. With the advent of forex trading with the internet, however, just about anyone can now open a forex trading account and begin trading currencies online. Even though the forex market has been made available to a wide audience of retail forex traders, currency speculation remains a risky endeavor. Studies show that more than 3/4 of new forex traders still lose money. Trading in the forex market certainly has its advantages but it also poses a considerable risk, especially to the novice trader. Keep reading to get a better picture of the pros and cons of forex trading. The Pros of Forex Trading The foreign exchange market has a number of advantages not found in other markets. These include: Easy Access The forex market is now probably the easiest financial market to open an account and begin trading in. Opening an online forex trading account can be done from anywhere in the world with as little as $1 and an internet-connected smart device. Practice Trading You can easily practice trading or gauge an online broker’s services and trading platform by opening a free demo account that almost all forex brokers offer. Leverage Unlike the stock market that involves purchases, forex positions are based on an exchange of currencies. While you can only leverage stock trading positions in a margin account at a 2:1 ratio, forex trades can be leveraged up to 1000:1 in some jurisdictions. U.S. regulations that apply to retail forex traders have tightened maximum allowed leverage ratios to 50:1 for major currency pairs and 20:1 on minor pairs, while the E.U. now limits retail forex leverage ratios to 30:1 for majors and 20:1 for minors. Quick Returns Once profitable forex positions are liquidated, the profits can be made available immediately for withdrawal, depending on the forex broker used. Ease of Going Long or Short Unlike in some stock markets, there are no uptick rules that prevent you from going short, so you can buy or sell currency pairs freely. When you take a position in the forex market, you take both long and short positions simultaneously by going long or short the base currency against the counter currency. High Liquidity The liquidity in the forex market is unmatched by any other capital market and central banks oversee the markets in their national currencies. Special circumstances, like the sudden imposition of exchange rate regimes, the release of major economic data and geopolitical events, can adversely affect the liquidity in affected currency pairs while the forex market is reacting to the new information. Less Chance of Market Manipulation Due to the size and depth of the forex market, manipulation of this huge market can be very difficult even for hedge funds and large corporations. Even national central banks can have difficulty manipulating the forex market, although they do sometimes step in to mitigate sharp market movements in their currencies. Low Trading Costs Overall, trading costs for forex compare quite favorably to other markets. If you mainly trade in major currency pairs, then dealing spreads tend to be tight, which reduces your trading costs. Dealing spreads in the minor and exotic currency pairs are typically wider, however, which increases your trading costs in those pairs. Simpler Tax Rules As “988 traders” according to the Internal Revenue Code (IRC), U.S.-based forex traders can deduct all of their trading losses for a given year. They can be taxed as a futures and options trader of 1256 contracts under the 60/40 rule that specifies that 60% of gains or losses are treated as long-term capital gains or losses, while 40% of gains or losses are treated as short term. Consult with your accountant to see what rules apply and what tax plan makes the most sense for you. Ability to Automate Your Trading Many online forex brokers support the MetaTrader 4 or 5 trading platforms that allow you to run “expert advisor” or EA software that lets you automate your trading. Other trading platforms also offer this feature, so check with your broker to find out if their platform supports automation. Open 24 Hours a Day During Trading Week The forex market opens at 5 p.m. EST on Sunday and closes at 5 p.m. EST on Friday. The forex market remains open continuously 24 hours a day during that trading week. The various trading sessions that correspond to major global money centers, like London, Tokyo and New York, also provide different levels of liquidity in certain currency pairs. For example, currency pairs containing the Japanese yen, Singapore dollar and the Australasian currencies tend to be more liquid during the Tokyo trading session. Lower Overhead Thanks to high liquidity and lower trading costs, your overhead as a forex trader tends to be lower than if you traded in other financial markets. Since forex trading is typically commission free, you usually just need to pay away the dealing spread. Also, all you’ll need to get started trading forex is an internet-connected device and a modest amount of risk capital to use as a margin deposit. The Cons of Forex Trading Now let's take a look at the cons of forex trading. Trading Against Professionals As a retail forex trader, you basically trade against a host of professional traders, large multinational corporations, national central banks and hedge funds that always have a presence in the forex market. Knowledge of World Events Since the forex market consists of national currencies, a knowledge of macroeconomics and familiarity with world events can be extremely important to achieve consistent profits. Ideally, you would limit your trading to a handful of currency pairs, researching each country’s fundamentals to make more informed decisions on trade. Lower Regulation Due to the unregulated nature of the forex market, many online forex brokers operate with little or no oversight depending on the broker’s jurisdiction. While this may be an issue in some countries, if you’re based in the Eurozone, U.K. or U.S. jurisdictions, you may only be able to trade with forex brokers regulated by the Commodities Futures Trading Commission (CFTC) in the U.S., the Financial Conduct Authority (FCA) in the U.K. or the Cyprus Securities and Exchange Commission (CySEC) in the E.U. Exchange Rate Valuations Unlike stocks, the origin of currency valuations aren’t as apparent and rely on a series of factors that may or may not be readily apparent in the market. This works against retail traders who might not have access to this type of information. Leverage Trading with leverage represents a double-edged sword for forex traders. On the one hand, you can magnify your profits, but by the same token your losses also increase with leverage. Leverage can be just as much of an advantage as a disadvantage to forex trades. Volatility Another example of a two-edged sword, while volatility remains a staple of short-term traders, volatility can be difficult to deal with for traders looking at the medium and long terms and could catch them off guard. Patience Required Successful trading typically requires patience as you wait for good opportunities to arise. Most traders also need to “get into the groove,” which means they need time to get used to the forex market in order to trade profitably. Trading in a demo account could be helpful for novice traders with limited experience. Contact Details CedarFX +1 877-440-9464 Company Website

September is Cholesterol Education Month


September is Cholesterol Education Month and for people with unsafe levels of high LDL (bad) cholesterol, there are many options in the treatment toolbox. Recently, Preventive Cardiologist Dr. Seth Baum participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss high LDL cholesterol, best treatment options, and tips for patients navigating challenges with their health coverage. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: Heart disease remains the leading cause of death in the United States and LDL-cholesterol, what we call the “bad” cholesterol, is a major risk factor which can lead to a heart attack or a stroke. While many can lower their LDL cholesterol with a heart healthy diet, some will need medication to reach their Safe Zone. Statins are often the first-line of treatment for individuals with high LDL cholesterol, not all patients reach their recommended LDL cholesterol levels with statins alone. In these cases, lipid-lowering medications, known as PCSK9 inhibitors, are often recommended to help lower cholesterol levels. Unfortunately, individuals who are prescribed PCSK9 inhibitors are facing significant hurdles in accessing and using these potentially life-saving drugs, despite their proven efficacy in reducing LDL cholesterol. One major obstacle is insurance company denials or rejections. Data published in the November 2022 Journal of the American Medical Association found that for commercially insured patients prescribed a PCSK9 inhibitor, only 42% of initial rejections were overturned. Sadly, nearly 75% of patients rejected for a PCSK9 inhibitor ended up on no therapy, which is not a win for anyone. Research from the Family Heart Foundation shows that compared to individuals who were able to obtain their prescribed PCSK9 inhibitor, those whose prescription was rejected or abandoned experienced more heart attacks, strokes, and other cardiovascular events within 12 months.

Ambow Education’s (NYSE: AMBO) Innovative HybriU AI Digital Education Solution Showcases The Potential Of AI To Transform Education

Ambow Education Holding

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga COVID-19 brought massive changes to the educational system globally. What was once thought to be largely infeasible has now become desirable and commonplace. Completely digital or hybrid learning experiences are now being utilized from K12 to higher education. However, there is limited infrastructure currently in place to support the dilemmas that arise from digital and remote learning. Put simply, companies like Zoom (NASDAQ: ZM) seem ill-equipped to handle all the nuances that play a role in online learning. That’s why artificial intelligence (AI) platforms and integrations are so integral to the future of the education sector. Ambow Education Holdings Ltd. (NYSE: AMBO) is leading the charge in integrating AI technology into the educational sector. Their ground-breaking solution, known as HybriU, is an advanced digital education total solution designed to empower students and bridge the gap between academia and industry. With the help of cutting-edge connective technology, HybriU aims to shatter traditional limitations in languages, regions, academia and industry – providing a seamless and immersive learning experience both online and offline. Ambow is a technology-driven educational company that primarily operates in the United States. Their latest offering, the HybriU AI digital education solution, is powered by the groundbreaking OOOK technology and is a patented solution that aims to modernize and enhance educational and workforce training for students. By integrating this powerful technology, Ambow aims to provide students with comprehensive and up-to-date resources, equipping them with the skills needed to thrive in today's rapidly evolving world. It is clear that the pandemic has significantly impacted the education system and teachers as much as students, bringing virtual elements to the classroom. With the need for hybrid education and technology integration, teachers have been burdened with additional responsibilities. Without proper maintenance and understanding, as well as functional platforms, teachers find themselves overwhelmed with technological demands, often taking away from their primary role of teaching. The implementation of AI technology, such as the HybriU digital AI classroom solution, can alleviate these problems. HybriU enables teachers to teach in a natural and easy manner, similar to a traditional classroom setting. The HybriU AI digital classroom is equipped with a student and teacher-tracking camera to ensure that a virtual student is not missing any important information or demonstrations. There are also mics throughout the classroom to pick up student and teacher statements, as well as a podium mic. All of this helps support seamless learning so no student is distracted by poor quality or unable to hear valuable information from a teacher or peers. HybriU’s utilization of OOOK technology enables the creation of personalized content that caters to diverse student populations. A shining example of HybriU's commitment to inclusion is its live subtitle feature and AI-generated voiceover, which allow students to access content in their native language. This feature is a game changer for those in virtual or hybrid learning environments, where language barriers can present significant difficulties. The technology offers benefits beyond inclusivity – students no longer need to dedicate time to taking notes as the AI will take care of that for them. Students can further engage in the learning experience by tagging and commenting on the AI-generated transcript, which is efficiently organized using an AI-powered indexing and tagging system. The tagging system also allows for efficient tracking of students’ progress and areas they may need additional support. These comments provide teachers with real-time feedback that can help with enhancing course materials and teaching style, creating an optimal learning atmosphere for all students. HybriU AI also offers unique features like 3D LED walls, which allow students to view complex models precisely and accurately. This is incredibly useful for disciplines like biology and medicine. Some classrooms also offer screens where students are reflected so the in-person teacher does not miss out on valuable interaction. For students who are being taught by remote teachers, there are O-Screens that offer lifelike, full-body views of the teacher. The online education sector is projected to grow from its 2022 value of $192 billion to $602 billion by 2030 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 17.2% over 2022-2030. The advantages offered by HybriU which are specifically designed to address this new education paradigm of hybrid learning potentially place Ambow Education in the right place at the right time to be a driving force in the industry and propel online learning experiences into the future. To sign up for a free demo of HybriU, visit or Ambow Education Holding Ltd. is a leading cross-border career educational and technology service provider, offering high-quality, individualized services and products.
