Modern Exploration Society Calls for Proposals for $15,000 Pathfinder Prize

SANTA BARBARA, Calif. -- Hidden Compass, a women-founded media company and modern exploration society, has just announced a call for proposals for their first annual Hidden Compass Pathfinder Prize. The $15,000 prize will fund a curious team of modern explorers and allow them to share their discoveries with the public.

Hidden Compass is accepting proposals through July 20 at which point a panel of experts will review the submissions and select three finalists. Hidden Compass co-founders Sivani Babu and Sabine K. Bergmann, who will also serve on the advisory panel, say they're looking for one thing: creativity.

"We're interested in exploration in all its forms," says Babu. "We want the types of proposals to be as diverse as the people who submit them. Because in the 21st century, everyone should be able to be an explorer. So whether these expeditions touch on history, science, art, ethics, or something else entirely, we welcome them - and look forward to finding something we didn't even know we were looking for."

Innovation is not only welcome in the proposals but is also driving the process of selecting the winner. After the panel of experts selects the finalists, expedition teams will pitch Allies - members of Hidden Compass's modern exploration society, The Alliance. Allies will then vote to decide the winner, who will be announced at Hidden Compass's virtual Ethos of Exploration Event in late 2022.

The Pathfinder Prize is a nod to the days of old, when exploration societies funded grand expeditions. But while expeditions of the past often held conquest as a goal, the modern journey funded by the Hidden Compass Pathfinder Prize is intended to set its sights on curiosity.

Since its founding in 2017, Hidden Compass has pioneered ways for audiences to participate in both journalism and exploration. Drawing inspiration from farm-to-table trends in the food industry, Hidden Compass: The Magazine invites audiences to see and support where the stories they read are coming from. In 2020, the publication became the first in the world to host patronage campaigns for every journalist it publishes - on top of the storytellers' article pay.

"Modern media companies really miss the mark when it comes to honoring readers, storytellers, and explorers," says Bergmann. "Right now, we live in an era of clickbait and cynicism where we focus on humanity's greatest problems, rather than our greatest opportunities. We're different. We're ending the era of junk food media by uniting audiences with the humans, causes, and possibilities behind award-winning stories and groundbreaking expeditions."

Bergmann, who have 25 years of experience in journalism and publishing, launched Hidden Compass in 2017 as an alternative to unhealthy, clickbait-laden content - what they call "junk food media." In 2020, the company pioneered a unique business model, leveraging patronage campaigns to increase journalists' pay and audience participation. The following year, readership grew by more than 40 percent, and Newsweek named Hidden Compass a finalist in its Future of Travel Awards. Learn more at https://hiddencompass.net .

ZKTECO USA integrates STiD Mobile ID for Advanced Contactless Access Control Offering

ATLANTA, Ga. -- STid announced today that ZKTecoUSA has integrated the STiD Mobile ID® application with ZKTecoUSA's ZKey mobile credential app for a more comprehensive, advanced contactless access control offering. The combined, enhanced mobile application offers four unique modes for contactless identification to ensure users have multiple options to meet their individual needs and preferences in addition to secure and dynamic QR code support.

STid's Mobile ID is currently compatible with ZKTecoUSA's Atlas and Pro series access control panels and will be integrated into many other hardware and software solutions from ZKTecoUSA moving forward.

STid's Mobile ID simplifies managing and issued cards by using virtual cards on smartphones that can be used with or without conventional cards. Virtual access cards can be stored on STid Mobile ID App, for Android or iOS, available free of charge in app stores, for near instant issuing of credentials.

The four unique modes include:

* Badge mode: smartphone or wearable is presented like a convention access card

* Slide mode: hand becomes the access card

* Tap Tap mode: double tap the smartphone in a pocket for access

* Hands-free mode: ID is automatically detected

Hosted on the cloud or on-premises, STid's Mobile ID offers managers ease of use with multi-user or multi-site options and quick, easy management of virtual cards.

"Integrating with STid has allowed us to provide solutions for our customers that were not able to be previously met," said Prata Khadilkar, marketing manager, ZKTecoUSA. "Advanced features like Pocket & Wave mode allow us to stay ahead of the trends in the access control world. We have even been able to integrate the credentials into our existing ZKey mobile credential app already supporting our secure & dynamic QR codes for truly contactless access."

The new mobile application is available for use with the ZKTecoUSA Atlas Access Control Panel, which features an easy-to-use interface with fingerprint reader to ensure building managers can control and grant access to only those users who are authorized and supports both Wiegand & OSDP protocols. Mobile ID is also available with the popular Pro series tripod turnstiles for indoor environments.

STid's Mobile ID will also be added into ZKTecoUSA's BioSecurity software and solutions for a direct connection to create and send credentials to the users, Cielo 365 cloud solution and Atlas 360 hybrid-cloud solution later this year. Multiple ZKTecoUSA hardware kits will include an STid Mobile ID option moving forward.

"We're happy to combine strengths and expertise with another industry leader to deliver the best solutions to end users," said Frederick Trujillo, U.S. Director of Operations, STid.

MCLEAN, Va. -- By Light Professional IT Services LLC (By Light) has been awarded the My HealtheVet (MHV) Development, Security and Operations (DevSecOps) contract by the Department of Veterans Affairs (VA). Valued at $82M over five (5) years, this contract provides for the continued support and development of VA's Veteran-facing Electronic Health portal.

Helen Butler, GCPA Executive Director, Statement On Election Integrity In Georgia Primary

ATLANTA, Ga. -- Helen Butler, executive director of the Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda (GCPA), issued the following statement about election integrity during the Georgia Primary on May 24, 2022:

"We are still assessing the impact of the numerous problems Georgia voters reported across the state, and will provide a formal briefing in the near future. Today, based on reports from coordinators and coalition members across the state, we can say that several locations opened late, machines were broken, and we had reports of voters receiving error messages. A few precincts, including Savannah High, reported that machines were not operating for the first few hours and they didn't provide provisional ballots until after 9 a.m.

"We received several complaints about voters who got the incorrect voting precinct on MVP. Once voters found out they received erroneous precinct information, rather than have a system to accommodate those voters, some voters were sent to another wrong polling place. The mix-up appears to be related to an inadequate amount of time to provide voters with correct precinct information between the acceptance of redistricting maps and the date of the primaries. Elections officials anticipated this problem and requested to change the date of the primaries, however, the Georgia legislature decided not to reschedule.

"Details matter. To protect the integrity of the election we must give election officials and staff enough time to disseminate correct information. The only way for every eligible voter to cast a ballot that counts is for them to receive accurate information from their board of elections. Voters have jobs, families and other responsibilities and should not have to travel from precinct to precinct in search of a place to vote. Instead of focusing on ways to make voting harder, our legislature and elected officials should make voting easier and ensure that we have fail-safe backup systems for people who are provided inaccurate information by the board of elections.

"Another issue we encountered was people who changed their names on their drivers license but the name wasn't automatically updated in the system. One person that had this issue went home to get their passport but with the strict ID requirements, some voters don't have an alternate acceptable form of ID and others don't have time or transportation to go home for more ID. We must make sure that the automatic voter registration system is automatic.

"Clearly, as we progress to the General Election, Georgia officials need to spend less time thinking of ways to restrict voting and more time focused on protecting the integrity of our elections by providing reliable information to voters, maintaining working voting machines, opening all precincts on time, and improving systems to ensure that democracy works for all voters."

ABOUT THE PEOPLE'S AGENDA:

Georgia Coalition for the People's Agenda is a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization performing year-round voter registration, education and mobilization in Black communities throughout Georgia. Led by board chair, Rev. J. A. Milner, and Butler, the organization has headquarters in Atlanta and offices in Athens, Albany, Macon, Augusta, LaGrange and Savannah.

Vibrant Med Spa Expands Wellness Center

CRESTWOOD, Ky. -- Vibrant Med Spa has expanded its facilities to accommodate demand for its Club Wellness, a key component of the company's offerings. In addition, Vibrant Med Spa has added two new aesthetic treatments, CoolPeel and Subnovii.

Club Wellness was created to help people break old, bad habits through medically supervised wellness services. Spearheaded by owner Erica Chowning, APRN, FNP-C, and Wellness Associate Jenna Lee, RN, the most important aspects of the Club Wellness program are life coaching and personalized support.

As part of Club Wellness, each patient receives an individual assessment, which is used to tailor a plan specifically in line with their personal aspirations, whether they be weight loss, improved energy, or building strength and muscle. Individual programs can include:

* Providing the right supplements

* Personalized meal prep education

* Focused exercise demonstrations

* Metabolism-boosting injections.

"We don't just hand you a set of wellness tools and send you on your way," noted Chowning. "We partner with you and create a nurturing environment that lets you thrive and make measurable progress toward your health and aesthetic goals."

Chowning said the two new aesthetic treatments added at Vibrant Med Spa, CoolPeel and Subnovii, give patients some exciting new options for reducing skin imperfections.

CoolPeel was developed to help combat imperfections from aging, sun damage, acne, or other skin concerns, and reveal smoother, younger-looking skin. It promotes new collagen and elastin formation by safely and comfortably delivering the benefits of a traditional CO2 laser resurfacing treatment by targeting only the superficial layer of skin. This means less discomfort and downtime.

The Tetra CoolPeel device delivers targeted laser energy to skin in a more controlled way. Instead of treating the entire desired area in one session, CoolPeel Louisville treats a certain percentage of the area, leaving small patches of undamaged skin in between the treated parts. These untreated areas of skin actually assist in boosting recovery and lead to more rapid healing. Over a series of CoolPeel sessions (typically about four treatments spaced one month apart), skin is gradually resurfaced to reveal more even-toned, younger-looking results.

Subnovii is a sophisticated skin resurfacing device that uses plasma technology to effectively promote fibroblast activity in the skin. This process stimulates the skin's natural production of collagen, elastin, and hyaluronic acid, which are the building blocks of healthy, youthful-looking skin. Plasma skin resurfacing relies on a stream of ionized gas to resurface skin's tissues, ultimately resulting in a tightening of the epidermis. Subnovii is the first FDA-cleared handheld plasma device that uses low-frequency energy along with a patented wavelength and power combination to address multiple signs of aging.

To learn more about Club Wellness, Subnovii, and CoolPeel, visit https://www.vibrantmed.com/.

Vibrant Med Spa treats patients from Kentucky, Ohio, Indiana, and even farther away, offering a comfortable, relaxed atmosphere with a "modern farmhouse" feel. Located on the outskirts of Louisville, just off I-71, the spa is convenient for residents throughout the area without traffic hassles. A hand-selected professional staff member devotes more time to each patient than typical medical spas. Treatments offered include injectables, ultrasound and laser treatments, facials, brows and lashes, weight loss, and nutrition.

The med spa is located at 6402 Westwind Way in Crestwood, Kentucky.
