Spotify’s Long Term Value has been Significantly Damaged (at least for now)

Will Spotify be able to weather this K-Pop storm?

Korean boy band and pop sensation “BTS” is no longer available on the Swedish audio giant’s platform. One of many K-Pop bands and artists.

Should Spotify's long term value to shareholders and the market should readjusted due to the companies inability to lockdown a deal with K-Pop's

Our new album Epik High Is Here [is] unavailable globally against our will. Regardless of who is at fault, why is it always the artists and the fans that suffer when businesses place greed over art?”

— Epik High

CONCORD, ONTARIO, CANADA, March 3, 2021 / — While it still is not entirely mainstream amongst Western listeners, K-Pop and it’s budding stars are a massive cultural force globally.

K-Pop, the South Korean pop music genre, is a nationally curated and sponsored cultural export. One of the genre’s most popular groups, BTS, has an estimated 18 million fans worldwide. While perhaps the largest BTS is only one of several South Korean boy bands, girl groups, and solo artists which have since found global stardom.

But how has the ascending popularity of South Korean pop music affected audio streaming giant Spotify? Recently, hundreds of popular K-Pop songs disappeared from the Swedish company’s audio platform. This left millions of “K-Pop Stans” frustrated, including artists themselves.

On March, 1st Spotify notified users that it was unable to reach a new licensing deal with Kakao M (one of South Korea’s largest entertainment and publishing companies). This resulted in hundreds of K-Pop songs being removed from Spotify overnight, leaving both fans and artists frustrated.

If you’re a Spotify stockholder, should you be worried? Yes. While the stock has not taken any significant hits since the announcement, this could have worrisome long term implications for the streaming service. Kakao M owns Melon, the largest South Korean audio streaming service. The recent inability to reach an agreement could signify an attempt being made by Kakao M to monopolize their control over K-Pop and streaming in South Korea.

For now, there may not be much to worry about for western users, listeners, and shareholders of Spotify. However, looking towards the horizon, if Spotify is cut out of the K-Pop genre completely, it may force millions of fans to switch to other services.

The cult following of K-Pop and it’s budding stars should not be underestimated. If Spotify is unable to have K-Pop return to their service, what's stopping millions of K-Pop fans from switching to a rival service such as Apple Music?

San Diego Startup Introduces UpLyft™, the First FDA-Compliant Self-Transfer System for People with Limited Mobility

Hundreds invest in equity crowdfunding campaign to support initial manufacturing

UpLyft addresses the critical need for a new method to safely and efficiently transfer people with mobility limitations between beds, gurneys & wheelchairs in private homes and health care facilities.”

— Craig Misrach, President & CEO

SAN DIEGO, CA, U.S., March 3, 2021 / — Independence, self-reliance and the avoidance of caregiver back injuries that cost the U.S. health care system more than $20 billion annually: Those are the benefits hundreds of equity crowdfunding investors have recognized in UpLyft™, the world’s first FDA-compliant medical system that empowers people with physical disabilities to safely, quickly and easily transfer themselves between bed and wheelchair, no physical force required. UpLyft, the San Diego-based startup that created the self-transfer system, has raised more than $624,000 since inception thanks to its recently completed Wefunder equity crowdfunding campaign that aimed to finance the initial manufacturing of units for pre-order customers.

“I’m 21-years-old and still live at my parents’ home simply because the only task that I need assistance with is getting out of bed,” said Michaela Davert, who has osteogenesis imperfecta, a rare connective-tissue disease. “I have such a big dream of being on my own…UpLyft could make that possible for me,” said Davert, one of UpLyft’s initial pre-order customers.

In more than three million U.S. households, a person needs assistance to get in and out of bed every day. The top three causes for mobility impairment include accidents, obesity and late-stage disease/end-of- life care. Often one or more members of these households take on the role of caregiver, helping the person with impaired mobility to get out of bed and into their wheelchair using slings, hoists, body boards and other physically strenuous methods. These lift-to-stand movements pose injury risks to both the caregiver and the individual requiring care.

In health care settings, 30 percent of work force injuries are related specifically to patient lifting, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics. As a result, California and 11 other states, as well as the federal government, have passed or are considering new laws to address caregiver back injuries and foster development of alternatives to manual lifting.

“UpLyft addresses the critical need for a new method to safely and efficiently transfer people with mobility limitations between beds, gurneys and wheelchairs in private homes and health care facilities,” said UpLyft President and CEO Craig Misrach. “We are looking forward to aligning with operating and financing partners that believe in our two-prong sales channel opportunity and can enable us to scale our manufacturing and distribution capabilities to fulfill UpLyft’s burgeoning market demand.”

The self-transfer system has two joysticks that control the up-and-down, right-and-left movement and are strategically positioned so that they are accessible to the person with mobility challenges, as well as caregivers. The joysticks allow the user to lower patented articulating “fingers panels” until they gently wrap around an individual’s thighs and torso, whether that person is in a supine or sitting position. UpLyft then gently lifts the individual above the bed, where the system pivots and lowers the individual comfortably into their wheelchair. The process takes about a minute. UpLyft is compatible with existing floor and ceiling hoist systems.

“Other lifts that utilize slings and body boards are not at all comparable to UpLyft and its ease of use,” said Ricky James, who has T7 paraplegia.

UpLyft’s Founder and Chief Technical Officer, Anton Simson, Ph.D., who earned three engineering degrees from MIT, began developing the self-transfer system in his garage in 2014, after a dear friend shared details about the difficulties of caring for his son, who had been paralyzed in a bicycle accident. As a result, the young man’s wife became his primary caregiver, but the family worried about the physical demands of caretaking as they got older.

“My friend asked if I could develop a device that would allow family members to transfer his son from bed to wheelchair, or vice-versa, with essentially no physical strain. Or better yet, design a system that would allow the son to transfer himself,” said Simson, a retired aerospace engineer. “I couldn’t resist the opportunity to work on such a project.”

Simson has since built nine prototypes that have been tested in institutional and home settings.

UpLyft was the No. 1 most-funded medical device company with an active campaign on Wefunder from August to December 2020. While the company continues to secure additional equity and debt capital from accredited investors, it is also accepting pre-orders through the company website.

About UpLyft

Founded in 2016 by Anton Simson, Ph.D., UpLyft addresses the critical need for an innovative method to safely and efficiently empower people with mobility limitations to self-transfer from bed to wheelchair and vice versa. The result is UpLyft™, the first FDA-compliant self-transfer system to restore independence to people with mobility challenges and best protect caregivers from encountering patient lifting injuries.

Queer Lenormand Crowdfunding Campaign on Kickstarter Close to Achieving $2,793 Goal Amount With a Month to Go

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, March 3, 2021 / — The Queer Lenormand crowdfunding campaign on Kickstarter launched by graphic designer, illustrator and queer artist Mariana Andrade continues to garner more attention and support, even with still a month to go.

For those who are unfamiliar with Lenormand cards, these are considered to be an alternative cartomancy system to tarot cards, oracle cards and other similar card divination systems.

Lenormand cards are distinctive from tarot cards in that their interpretation is less focused on psychological feelings and more on everyday, practical matters. Also, unlike tarot cards, which comprise 78 cards, the traditional Lenormand deck comprises only 36 cards, out of which there are only three generic person cards: The Child, Man and Woman.

Andrade’s Queer Lenormand deck hopes to change this aspect of traditional Lenormand cards by introducing additional cards that consider the LGBTQIA+ community.

The Queer Lenormand includes 18 more cards, which are essentially character cards that anyone can use for a reading or establishing relationships. These extra cards are:

5 person cards: Represent those who identify as non-binary, genderqueer or gender- fluid

4 men cards: Make for a total of five men cards in the deck

4 women cards: Make for a total of five women cards in the deck

1 child card: This extra child card means there are now two child cards in the deck

4 drag cards: Represent drag queens and drag kings

The Queer Lenormand deck, beyond having 54 cards, also comes with a guidebook with a size of 105mm x 148mm. The guidebook provides the meaning of the cards and also includes two reading styles designed to help users – whether they are new to Lenormand cartomancy or are well-versed in the conventional Lenormand deck.

Andrade developed this project “to solve the problem of lack of inclusion in terms of the diversity of genres in the traditional Lenormand deck.”

“The world is changing, and the cards can change too,” says Andrade.

Professional card readers should also have the tools to accommodate all types of customers – including those who do not identify with the traditional binary gender system of man and woman. The Queer Lenormand deck has person cards that represent other types of gender (or even non-gender identification) to address this concern.

Those who want to support this project have until 3 April 2021 to extend their assistance.

More details about this project, including backer packages, are available on the Queer Lenormand Kickstarter page.

WESTLAKE, FL, UNITED STATES, March 3, 2021 / — Between busy jobs and kids schoolwork, many Palm Beach County families have little or no time for cooking meals, and instead eating junk food or the same old takeout — tacos, chicken nuggets, burgers, pizza. Home-cooked dinners, that used to be a priority, are becoming fewer and fewer at family dinner time.

In steps Emmy's Handcrafted Meals – Palm Beach County's new locally-sourced and locally-prepared food delivery company.

This one, though, is a bit different. Emmy's Handcrafted Meals offers a fully-prepared gourmet dinner kit ready to heat and serve – delivered to your doorstep each week. It launched in Palm Beach County in February.

The Westlake, FL company cooks and assembles locally-sourced goods that allow busy families to enjoy full-on dinners in about 10 minutes. The meals start at an affordable cost of $14.99 per person.

Emmy's Handcrafted Meals uses an online ordering service that accepts your meal order by Saturday night and then delivers your dinners, in refrigerated bags, from its Delray Beach headquarters each Wednesday. There's no subscription required, like many other plans, so customers don't need to use Emmy's Handcrafted Meals each week if their schedule and needs change.

Emmy’s remains committed to serving their community in a multitude of ways starting with offering all-inclusive pricing on local delivery orders and a presence at local community and non-profit events.

They are also committed to giving back to their community by donating a portion of their proceeds to Feeding South Florida. So, every purchase you make will also help in making the difference in eliminating food-insecurity for fellow South Floridians.

Emmy’s Handcrafted Meals and online order system can be found at and you can contact them at 561-285-7634 or
