Broadcasters Show Daily 1 9 Monday, April 20, 2020 ASHA's Concern About Tech Use Shared by World Health Organization The American Speech-Language Association (ASHA) has long raised con- cern about the threat to hearing from lis- tening to personal audio devices too loudly, too often and for too long. That concern was validated anew last February when the World Health Organization (WHO), in conjunction with the International Telecommunication Union (ITU), introduced first ever global safe listening recommendations for man- ufacturers of personal audio devices. Collectively, the recommendations are referred to as the WHO-ITU Global Standard for Safe Listening Devices and Systems. According to WHO, nearly 50 per- cent of people age 12–35 years old – or 1.1 billion young people – are at risk of hearing loss from prolonged and exces- sive exposure to loud sounds, including music heard through personal audio devices. Since 2006, ASHA has been a leader warning the public about the risk, so much so that WHO invited ASHA to join a diverse group of outside experts to con- sult with them on its Make Listening Safe campaign, the effort that produced the new global safe listening recom- mendations. The recommendations ask manufac- turers to equip devices like smartphones and other personal audio devices with information that explains safe listening and includes usage warnings, tracking information and options for limiting vol- ume levels. The recommenda- tions would also have safe listening informa- tion appear in advertis- ing and on external product packaging and manufacturers' websites. These WHO recommendations represent a global attempt to mitigate the risk of unsafe popular tech use.

Enventys Partners Brings Ideas to Life Great ideas often start as small solutions to everyday problems. Inventors look at the world around them and create solu- tions that make their lives easier in some way.

Creator Christopher Stubbs brought lofty ideas and a prototype constructed with plastic building blocks to Enventys Partners. The product development team transformed Luminook from sketch to full smart lighting ecosystem, and the crowdfunding team readied the brand for launch. Riego Riego, a decorative indoor irrigation sys- tem was born out of the desire to main- tain a variety of houseplants with a no- fuss self-watering system. Creators Manuel and Maria Caceras created a rudimentary prototype using found materials, then came to Enventys Partners to turn their conceptual proto- type into a product. Enventys Partners gave their concept IQ points with a smart watering algorithm and improved the device aes- thetics. It also developed an a c c o m p a n y - ing app, mak- ing the device smarter, and its marketers readied the brand for launch. Mobile Pixels, Inc. Mobile Pixels teamed up with Enventys Partners twice in two years to crowd- fund its portable laptop monitors, DUEX and TRIO, raising more than $2 million. kegg The kegg team worked with Enventys Partners to crowdfund its two-in-one fer- tility tracking monitor, which raised over $51,000 on Indiegogo in 2019.

With Enventys Partners' help, PlayShifu saw a 211 percent return on advertising spend, building on the crowd- funding campaign's success. Kryo Inc. Enventys Partners worked with Chili Technology, a brand of Kryo Inc., to suc- cessfully crowdfund its temperature-reg- ulation mattress topper system in 2016. Post-campaign, Enventys Partners re- booted the Chili Technology website, leading to a 150 percent revenue increase.
