Utah-based Silver Fern Brand Seeks Funding for Natural, Low-Carb Syrups

Company Nearly Three-Quarters of a Way to Reaching Crowdfunding Campaign Goal 

Low-carb, natural pancake syrup that actually tastes like the real thing is closer to reality, with Silver Fern™ Brand nearly reaching its $10,000 goal on Indiegogo. With more than $7,000 raised in less than 36 hours, the syrups—in maple, strawberry, blueberry, raspberry and blackberry flavors—will be on the shelves faster and at a lower cost, according to CEO Phil Cox.

Silver Fern Brand, a new Utah-based food company changing the way health-conscious consumers enjoy anything sweet, introduced natural, protein pancake mixes in May as part of its Paka baking mixes, but the high cost of the ingredients required to create natural, high-fiber syrups with only 2 or 3 net carbs per serving motivated founder and CEO Phil Cox to look directly to his target audience through crowdfunding to help create a large initial production run that would ultimately lower the price of the syrups.

Natural, low-carb syrups that taste like the real thing will please entire families, according to Silver Fern Brand CEO Phil Cox. His son Burke is a huge fan.

“What’s the point of a healthier pancake if you are going to drench it in unhealthy syrup?” Cox wrote in a release this week. “I developed these for my own family, and after more than a year of research and testing, they’re ready to be shared with consumers so they aren’t using artificial ingredients or even real maple syrup, which while a healthier option, can have more than 50 diabetes-inducing grams of sugar per serving. These have two net carbs, giving you the real syrups flavor without the real problems. We’re making that possible but we need your help so more can enjoy healthier pancakes this summer!”

According to Cox, the syrups are sweetened with Kakato™ sweetener, a proprietary blend of stevia sweetener, monk fruit extract, tagatose prebiotic fiber and other natural sweeteners. They are natural and contain no artificial flavors or colors. They also don’t use sugar alcohols and have no added sugars.

Seize The Power

What can you do with broadband speeds of gigabit per second (Gbps)? That’s 1,000 Megabits per second—up to 100 times faster than the current national average speeds. For starters, you can download songs, movies and TV shows over the Internet in seconds. You can play games, hold a video conference and share files and photos, all high-quality experiences at ultra-high speeds.

That’s just the beginning. As we all acquire more Internet-connected devices, our need for more bandwidth proliferates. Back in 2012, Bloomberg estimated that the average U.S. household had five such devices—desktops, laptops, tablets, smartphones, TVs, gaming consoles and wearable tech among them. A year later, Reuters predicted that number would jump to 50 by 2020. Does that sound far-fetched? Maybe not, considering the burgeoning world of the Internet of Things in which our cars and home appliances connect with our must-have devices and with each other.

The power of 1 Gbps is not a luxury but, increasingly, a must-have for ordinary residents, as well as businesses. Call it the virtual cycle: As greater broadband capacity gets installed in one area, it’s driving demand for higher bandwidth elsewhere, as everyone wants to get on that bandwagon. (A recent Wall Street Journal story reports that as more people base home-buying decisions on the availability of broadband, high-speed Internet access is driving up the price of houses.)

With those growing needs in mind, CenturyLink, Inc. recently introduced 1 Gbps Internet broadband service to 3,600 households of Daybreak, through our ultra-fast fiber to the home (FTTH) network. This service allows residents of Daybreak, a master-planned community in South Jordan, to access some of the fastest upload and download Internet speeds in the nation. We’re committed to bringing 1 Gbps speeds to roughly 100,000 residential customers over the next 10 months, including Sugar House, Millcreek, downtown Salt Lake City, and Liberty Park, along with several cities along the Wasatch front.

Daybreak joins a family of already lit-up neighborhoods of residential and small and midsized business customers. CenturyLink has made 1 Gpbs service available to customers in parts of 17 states, stretching from Orlando, Fla. and Minneapolis-St. Paul to Seattle and Salt Lake City.

Selected households now have the same power as leading-edge businesses. With 1 Gbps “symmetrical” speed, you can upload data and multi-media files to the cloud (where they are backed up and stored) at the same ultra-fast rate as you download the TV shows and movies you can’t live without. You’ll also have the bandwidth to accommodate more devices in your life, as your phone communicates with your car, and your dishwasher starts talking to your washer and drier.

CenturyLink is proud to be putting this power into the hands not only of businesses, universities and schools, but also in homes. Welcome to the gigabit world.

Shout TV Launches Shout Social, Enabling Fans Worldwide to Play Its Popular Games Against Friends During Live Events

-Fans can join Shout’s virtual, global stadium in March during the world famous El Clásico soccer match as well as NCAA® Tournament events; Shout has users in all 196 Countries around the world-

Shout TV (Shout), a leading social media platform for sports fans, today announced the launch of itsScreen_Shot_2015-03-18_at_11.47.20_AM Shout Social application. The application allows fans to compete against their friends and other fans for prizes while they watch the March sporting events El Clásico and the NCAA® Tournament.

In addition to being able to play Shout from a downloaded app, fans can also join in the fun without downloading and installing an app. Shout players, “Shouters,” can now join any Shout contest by simply clicking on a link in Facebook or Twitter. This technical breakthrough enables any fan, anywhere in the world, on any device with a web browser to be able to play. The company already has Shouters in all 196 countries around the world.

The company is hosting a virtual global stadium where fans can join in contests and quizzes as part of the world famous El Clásico soccer match between Real Madrid C.F. and FC Barcelona on March 22, 2015. Shout also has a contest surrounding the NCAA Tournament games.

With the launch of Shout Social, fans are now able to see what events their friends are participating in and see how they stack up against those friends. Shouters can also match wits against other players for a wide range of prizes and discounted products. Shout has already given away numerous Ducati motorcycles, a new Fiat 500 “Beats by Dre” edition car and thousands of smaller prizes such as tablets, video game consoles, big screen TVs and a wide range of gift cards. No purchase is necessary to play.

The Shout business formula is to take a portion of revenue that it generates from advertisers and put it into a prize fund for Shout players. Thus, the more Shout grows, the more fans play and share with their friends, the more Shout can reward its players.

For El Clásico, Shout recently inked a multi-year deal with Real Madrid, the world’s premier sports brand, to power The Challenge contests for the brand. Real Madrid has over 500 million global fans with direct social media connections into 110 million of those fans.

“With the recent breakout growth of Shout, we are proud to say registered Shouters are now playing in 196 countries and are competing for prizes in every corner of the earth,” said Darl McBride, founder and CEO of Shout. “We are equally proud to announce that Shout Social will allow the more than 2 billion fans with smartphones, as well as fans using any device with a web browser, to be able to join in the fun and play. These breakthroughs have put Shout squarely on the map with advertisers and sponsors in a big way, which will ultimately allow Shout to give out even more cool prizes to fans globally.”

A major goal of Shout is to build a global community of social and loyal fans and reward them with real prizes by answering questions and competing against friends and other fans during real time events. Shout pairs fans one-on-one when they join a Shout event, enabling them to compete for a 50/50 prize, which is awarded to the player with the highest score. This is just the first way to win a prize. Shout players can also win Leaderboard, Champions Challenge Levels, Questions, and soon, Friend Box prizes during Shout events.

Shout TV is also a great platform for marketers looking for new mobile advertising channels for their products and services. The unique part of Shout’s system is that sponsorships are tastefully “gamified” by having sponsor products and services transformed into game prizes. This creates a strong mobile brand magnet that entices fans to view and interact with sponsors’ brands for hours, weeks and even months at a time. Every time a fan plays Shout, they are directly connected with sponsors and can actively click sponsor links, view videos and compete for branded prizes.

“So far, the small form factor of mobile devices has proven to be a challenge for advertisers trying to get their message across to mobile users,” said McBride. “When fans play Shout, they are drawn to the sponsor section of the app – that’s where the prizes are. Everyone likes winning free stuff.”

New UTC 2014 Engineering Survey Highlights Urgent Need For Additional Graduates In STEM

-Newest Data Shows Utah’s Need For STEM-Skilled Candidates is Growing Rapidly –

Utah’s need for STEM-oriented employees and graduates is growing rapidly and is dire according toUTC_LOGO the newest Computer Science/Engineering survey results from the Utah Technology Council (UTC). The full results of the 2014 survey are available now from UTC’s website, www.utahtechcouncil.org.

Utah must redouble its efforts to advance STEM education in order to answer this need and to keep our high-paying technology jobs in Utah, UTC’s CEO Richard R. Nelson has said.

Highlights of the 2014 survey, which compiled responses from 40 participating organizations, are as follows:

Utah’s software developer/engineering jobs are increasing rapidly. In 2014, Utah companies employed 8,182 software developers/engineers versus 4,703 in 2013—an increase of 174 percent. Furthermore, 85 percent of these positions pay $75,000 to $105,000.

Current openings are high. Currently there are more than 1,105 open positions just within the 40 companies queried. Five-hundred twenty seven are for software developers/engineers, as compared to 391 in 2013.

Hiring plans are growing. Seventy-two percent of respondents plan to increase their employee count in the next 12 months, including 1,845 open technology positions. Of these 1,845 openings, 1,079 are for software developers/engineer positions. (This is compared to 1,789 total technology openings in 2013.)

Filling jobs is difficult. Seventy-two percent say they are having difficulty finding enough qualified candidates from Utah’s engineering or technical schools as compared to 49% in 2013. This data shows the critical need for more STEM-educated graduates in Utah, Nelson said.

Furthermore, 74 percent said they recruit out of state talent, as compared to 63 percent in 2013.

Many organizations are exporting jobs out of state. Forty-four percent of responding companies have opened offices out of state in order to get the technical talent they need.

Finally, UTC reported that of the 40 companies responding, 83 percent are growing or thriving. Forty-five percent have 100+ employees in Utah and 56 percent have 1-99 employees outside of Utah.

Tilt My Blinds Aims To Make Window Blinds Smart Through Kickstarter Campaign

— Tilt My Blinds gives homeowners the ability to program and control existing two-inch blinds with a simple easy-to-install blind automation kit —

 Tilt My Blinds (Tilt) has turned to Kickstarter to bring affordable smart house blinds to the masses without the need to buy146337 new blinds altogether. Tilt is an automation kit that is easily installed in the blind rail of most two-inch slat blinds. Tilt is programmable and can be controlled using your smartphone or Tilt switch.

For its 31-day Kickstarter campaign, Tilt My Blinds has set a goal of $50,000 and anticipates bringing the product to the market by February 2015. Kickstarter backers can join the campaign by visiting the project here.

“My home is my sanctuary. I crave natural light during the daytime and need privacy when the sun goes down. I spend too much time opening and closing all of the blinds in my home to achieve this,” said Emily Brimhall, co-founder of Tilt My Blinds. “We designed Tilt to allow homeowners to easily upgrade their existing two-inch blinds without having to spend thousands on new blinds or a new home automation system.”

Easy to Install

Tilt can be installed in 15 minutes or less without the need for heavy tools or professional installation.

Programmable

Through its custom app, Tilt can be easily programmed to open and close at specified times so you can have natural light in the day, privacy at night, and optimum energy savings. While you are away from home, Tilt is customizable and can be programmed to open one or multiple blinds to keep your personal belongings out of sight.

Additionally, the company will offer a USB dongle that can be inserted into your TV’s USB port that tells the Tilt to close when the TV is turned on.

Battery or Solar Power

Tilt uses lithium iron batteries and is recharged by plugging the cord into the blind’s drawstring. Additionally, Tilt will sell a solar-power option as an add-on that can be used to power the blinds and is mounted behind the blind tray.

Light Sensor

Tilt includes a smart sensor that detects when it is night or day and opens and closes based on your settings in Tilt’s app. The sensor also knows the difference between sunlight and artificial light so blinds don’t open and close every time the lights turn on and off.

Controlling Tilt

Tilt uses Bluetooth LE (Bluetooth 4.0) to communicate with Android and iOS smart devices to give homeowners complete control of their blinds from any room. Tilt will also offer a switch that is easily mounted on any surface in the home to control your blinds at the click of a button, and if you are standing next to Tilt blinds you can simply tug on the string and your blinds will open or close.

For more information about Tilt and to see how it works, visit www.tiltmyblinds.com.

About Tilt

Based in Provo, Utah, Tilt gives homeowners the ability to quickly and inexpensively transform their existing 2-inch slat blinds into smart blinds without a recurring monthly bill and need to adopt a single technology ecosystem. For more information visit www.tiltmyblinds.com.
