Pixalate Launches “Made For Advertising” (MFA) Detection and Blocking Technology for Websites, Connected TV & Mobile Apps

New feature delivers continuous monitoring and rating of 100+ million web domains, CTV and mobile apps assigning a high, medium, or low MFA risk assessment

London, UK, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Pixalate, the global market-leading ad fraud protection, privacy, and compliance analytics platform, today announced the launch of  “Made for Advertising” (MFA) technology to detect and block MFA websites, CTV and mobile apps. Pixalate’s MFA solution rates websites, CTV and mobile apps with a high, medium, or low MFA risk; this new feature is available in Beta across the Pixalate product suite.

Pixalate’s MFA detection technology models historical open programmatic transaction data across all apps, pages and URLs; an October 2023 MFA Pixalate assessment deemed over 15K MFA websites and apps high risk. MFA websites and apps can feature intrusive advertising techniques like pop-up ads, auto-play videos, or ads restricting access to content, often resulting in a poor advertising-to-attention ratio.

With the release of this new feature, Pixalate addresses the nuances of MFA in CTV and mobile apps by incorporating metrics beyond ad refresh and ad density to include the age of the app, invalid traffic (IVT) rates, user ratings, and popularity rankings. Pixalate uses statistical techniques such as Univariate/Multivariate Descriptive and Gaussian curve analysis to assign high, medium, or low MFA risk to websites, CTV, and mobile apps.

Pixalate’s MFA risk assessment technology uses the following data points, enabling ad buyers to adjust their MFA risk threshold:

Connected TV App MFA Risk Definition and Criteria  

  • MFA Risk: Pixalate’s assessment of the risk (High, Medium or Low) of the CTV app being deemed MFA
    • Ad Refresh Rate: Number of ad impressions observed per device, per hour
    • Age:  Age of the app on the App Store
    • IVT: IVT% of the App across regions
    • Popularity Score: Pixalate’s popularity score for the app
    • Reviews: Number of Reviews

Mobile App MFA Risk Definition and Criteria 

  • MFA Risk: Pixalate’s assessment of the risk (High, Medium or Low) of the mobile app being deemed MFA
    • Ad Refresh Rate: Number of ad impressions observed per device per hour
    • Age:  Age of the app on the App Store
    • IVT: IVT% of the app across regions
    • Popularity: Pixalate’s popularity score for the app
    • Reviews: Number of Reviews

Website MFA Risk Definition and Criteria

  • MFA Risk: Pixalate’s assessment of the risk (High, Med or Low) of the website being deemed MFA
    • Ad Density Rate: Number of ad placements observed per device, per minute
    • Ad Refresh Rate: Number of ad impressions observed per device, per minute
    • Paid Traffic Rate: Volume of traffic sourced via paid (ad) sources
    • Social Traffic Rate: Volume of traffic sourced via social media

Examples of Made for Advertising in Websites, CTV and Mobile Apps: 

MFA Mobile App Example: MFA observed by Pixalate in mobile app shows ads blocking the apps’ content, promoting unqualified clicks from users therefore impeding the implied app functionality.

MFA CTV App Example: Pixalate observed a MFA CTV app presenting small thumbnail-sized video ads instead of full-screen ads. The videos run back-to-back, muted, and constantly in a corner of the screen overlaid on the intended CTV content.

MFA Website Example: The example MFA website met Pixalate’s criteria for MFA based on the number of ad placements, ad refresh rate, and traffic source types.

MFA Detection and Real-time Blocking:

  • MFA Blocking Technology: Distinct Data Feeds for MFA mobile apps, CTV apps, and websites
    • Segmented by medium- and high-risk
    • Available via API or FTP for high performance and low latency
  • MFA Risk Assessment in the Media Ratings Terminal: Pixalate’s ad supply chain intelligence tool, the Media Ratings Terminal (MRT), now includes MFA risk assessments
  • MFA Reports in Analytics Dashboard: Pixalate’s post-bid analytics dashboard will provide clients insight into the impact of MFA websites and apps on their first-party traffic
  • MFA insights via APIs: The Enrichment API within Pixalate’s self-service Ad Trust and Safety API suite now includes MFA insights associated with the websites, mobile and CTV apps. Insights include the overall MFA Risk rating and the details impacting MFA risk such as Ad Density, Ad Refresh Rate, App Age, Paid Traffic, etc.

XOOX, the world’s first pet networking service (PNS), creates buzz with its launch


XOOX leads the pet networking services arena with its innovative features, including short-form content challenges, dedicated music for pets, and revolutionary health management.

– Popular for its short-form content challenges, pet music, illness diagnosis kit app, etc.

– Providing a newly conceptualized service with ID registration using pets’ eyes

NEW YORK, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — XOOX, a pet networking service (PNS) application featuring short-form content challenges, launched this month, winning over global pet owners. XOOX commenced its service with an advertisement in New York’s Times Square, underscoring its exclusive focus on our four-legged companions.

XOOX operates uniquely under pet accounts through Pet ID registration devised by XOOX’s global research and AI teams, including veterinary experts worldwide, utilizing innovative biometric identification techniques such as eyelid patterns and eye wrinkles. XOOX’s research team stated, “Through Pet ID, pets are recognized as account users on XOOX, allowing them to engage in various activities such as pet registration, insurance, health management, and making friends,” adding, “To enhance the accuracy of biometric recognition, we adopted a method that is a step up from nose prints and iris scans.”

In XOOX, pets become influencers through their IDs, boosting visibility by sharing their daily lives, engaging with followers, and participating in short-form content challenges. They earn points for various activities, usable in connected apps, for creating avatars, and for product purchases. Pet owners, known as Petlers, manage their pets’ IDs and support them in their activities. Striving to foster a positive shift in attitudes toward pets, XOOX welcomes individuals who currently do not own pets to also join. However, posting content is not a feature available to them at this time. Peter Kim, Technical Advisor at XOOX, said, “XOOX aims to create a positive space where modern individuals can escape from complicated reality and connect with their pets.” Kim added, “XOOX will allow pets to create more memories with their Petlers by utilizing a storyscaping approach and unique and informative services.”

The world of XOOX is full of exclusive content for pets. Its most popular music app (XOOX M) lets Petlers to select music that suits the pet’s preferences. The app, created through content development by XOOX’s music content affiliate Jo studios (CEO: Woojin Cho), is designed for pets waiting for their owners and currently hosts over 3,000 songs. Petlers can also create and upload their own music, earning points for popularity, which can be spent by their pets. XOOX M ensures a pet-friendly listening experience at a comfortable decibel level.

Additionally, a product developed with Push Pull System (CEO: Sungmyon Song) is in the works. By analyzing and utilizing deep learning techniques, it will determine whether pets truly enjoy music and do not perceive it as noise. The product will seamlessly sync with pet cameras and speakers, offering personalized music recommendations for your pets.

As a pet owner, it is worth paying attention to the app’s current launch promotion. In celebration of the launch, XOOX is giving away 10,000 free urine test kits to account holders worldwide. These test kits provide a simple way to detect illnesses through animal urine, making them ideal for pets in areas with limited access to veterinary care, helping to maintain the well-being of your beloved pets.

Furthermore, based on the launch of the pet urine diagnostic kit app with Medi Cloud, a global genetic analysis company based on NGS technology, XOOX will also launch applications that link pet DNA and MBTI.

Upon registration, 1 cent is automatically donated to the XOOX Foundation. These contributions will be directed towards campaigns across the globe aiming to positively influence pet-related legislation. With XOOX empowering pets to play a central role in our world, there is a strong belief that it will significantly contribute to creating a more supportive and pet-friendly environment.

RSPO Celebrates 20 Years of Impact and Reaffirms the Power of Partnerships for the Next 20

Collective action and innovative practices sowed within the industry are reaping results, with RSPO global certification, membership, production and consumption volumes steadily on the rise, alongside greater environmental stewardship

Opening Speech

RSPO Chief Executive Officer delivering the opening speech at RSPO RT2023

JAKARTA, Indonesia, Nov. 21, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — The Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil marked a special milestone at its Annual Roundtable conference (RT2023), themed “Partners for the Next 20”, to reflect on nearly two decades of impact made possible through the collaborative efforts of RSPO’s Members and partners. RT2023 presented an opportunity to take unified action on the core challenges facing the sustainable palm oil industry, including mitigating climate change, increasing uptake of certified sustainable palm oil (CSPO), protecting labour rights, and facilitating greater smallholder inclusion in green supply chains through compliance with emerging international regulations.

For nearly twenty years, the RSPO has facilitated global change to make the production and consumption of palm oil sustainable. Starting from 200 members from 16 countries in 2004, RSPO now counts more than 5,700 members in over 100 countries and territories spanning the globe.

In his opening remarks, RSPO CEO Joseph D’Cruz said, “Through nearly two decades of voluntary action, RSPO Members have banded together to raise the bars of sustainability within the industry. The impact we have collectively achieved is increasingly being acknowledged by stakeholders outside our industry, and we are seeing a definite shift in the sustainable palm oil narrative in our favour. As a global partnership to make palm oil sustainable, we must ride this trajectory and continue to evolve and pursue new territory. There is room now for us to move beyond a standard and certification system and develop tools that would enable the industry to demonstrate sustainability in the way that markets, regulators and customers demand today.”

Opening Speech

RSPO’s key achievements over the last two decades were highlighted, including the increase in global certified area from just 125,000 hectares in 2008 to 4.9 million hectares across 23 countries in 2023. Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO) supply reached a new milestone at 15.4 million metric tonnes, while RSPO Trademark licences have increased significantly to more than 1,600 licences in over 100 countries and territories, with growth seen in China, Japan and Southeast Asia, signalling significant opportunities in these markets. The RSPO Smallholder Support Fund (RSSF) has provided US$4.2 million in funding to support 44,203 farmers in 12 countries since 2013. Accounting for 40% of total palm oil production output in key producing countries, smallholders featured strongly at RT2023, focused on opportunities and pathways to facilitate greater inclusion in green supply chains through compliance with emerging international regulations.

Charting new territory, RSPO’s Certification, Trade and Traceability System (CTTS), launched recently in October 2023 with the formation of the tripartite consortium of global agri-tech experts, exemplifies how the organisation is advancing and digitising its tracking and traceability systems into an end-to-end digital infrastructure. This is rooted by best-in-class solutions that will be able to meet current demands and anticipate the future needs of a sector that is rapidly evolving to meet tightening global regulations, starting with the EU Deforestation Regulation (EUDR), and is actively engaging with the European Commission for knowledge-sharing on this topic with all relevant parties.

Excellence Awards

Anne Rosenbarger and José Roberto Montenegro, Co-Chairs of the RSPO Board of Governors, together called for the successes of the past 20 years to be leveraged and scaled further through collective action and innovative approaches. “RSPO is strategically evolving to meet current and forthcoming challenges, including shifting regulatory and market expectations, by improving the auditability and implementability of our current standards and Assurance systems in order to be ready to connect to the broader industry’s sustainability platforms,” said Anne Rosenbarger. Following a comprehensive and highly consultative review of its current 2018 RSPO Principles and Criteria and 2019 RSPO Independent Smallholder Standard, a technical revision process is underway to produce a revised set of standards in 2024.

‫XOOX، أول خدمة تواصل شبكي للحيوانات الأليفة (PNS) تلفت الأنظار لدى تدشينها

– تشتهر الخدمة بتحديات المحتوى المختصر وموسيقى الحيوانات الأليفة وتطبيق مجموعة تشخيص الأمراض، وغيرها.

– توفير خدمة جديدة مع تسجيل مُعرف الهوية باستخدام أعين الحيوانات الأليفة

نيويورك، 21 نوفمبر 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — يشتمل تطبيق خدمة التواصل الشبكي للحيوانات الأليفة، XOOX، على تحديات المحتوى المختصر، وقد تم تدشين التطبيق هذا الشهر واستقطب ملاك الحيوانات الأليفة على مستوى العالم. بدأ تطبيق XOOX تقديم خدماته من خلال إعلان في ميدان نيويورك تايمز، يؤكد على تركيزه الحصري على أصدقائنا من الحيوانات الأليفة ذات الأربعة أرجل.

يعمل تطبيق XOOX بشكل فريد بموجب حسابات حيوانات أليفة من خلال عملية تسجيل معرفات الحيوانات الأليفة التي ابتكرتها فرق الأبحاث والذكاء الاصطناعي العالمية لدى XOOX، بما في ذلك الخبراء البيطريين على مستوى العالم، باستخدام أساليب بيومترية للتعرف على الهوية، مثل أنماط الجفون وتجعدات العيون. وبهذه المناسبة، قال فريق أبحاث XOOX “من خلال مُعرف هوية الحيوانات الأليفة، يتم التعرف على الحيوانات الأليفة باعتبارها مستخدمة للحسابات على XOOX، مما يسمح لها بالانخراط في العديد من الأنشطة، مثل تسجيل الحيوانات الأليفة والتأمين وإدارة الصحة وتكوين الصداقات”، وأضاف “ومن أجل تعزيز دقة التسجيل البيومتري، قمنا باعتماد طريقة متقدمة بخطوة على طباعة الأنف والمسح الضوئي للحدقية”.

ومن خلال تطبيق XOOX، تصبح الحيوانات الأليفة مؤثرة من خلال معرفات الهوية الخاصة بكل منها، مما يعزز المعرفة بها عبر مشاركة حياتها اليومية واستقطاب المتابعين والمشاركة في تحديات المحتوى المختصر. وهي تكسب نقاطًا من خلال مختلف الأنشطة، قابلة للاستخدام في التطبيقات المتصلة، من أجل إنشاء الأفاتار ومشتريات المنتجات. يعمل ملاك الحيوانات الأليفة، والمعروفون كذلك باسم البتلر، على إدارة معرفات هوية حيواناتهم الأليفة ودعمها في أنشطتها. يرحب تطبيق XOOX بالأفراد الذين لا يملكون حيوانات أليفة ويشجعهم على الانضمام كذلك، مما يعمل على تعزيز التحول الإيجابي تجاه الحيوانات الأليفة. غير أن نشر المحتوى ليس خاصية متاحة لهم في هذا الوقت. وفي معرض تعليقه على هذه المناسبة، قال Peter Kim المستشار الفني في XOOX “يهدف تطبيق XOOX إلى إيجاد مساحة إيجابية حيث يستطيع الأشخاص المعاصرون الهروب من الواقع المعقد والتواصل مع حيواناتهم الأليفة”. وأضاف Kim “سوف يسمح XOOX للحيوانات الأليفة بإيجاد المزيد من الذكريات مع ملاك الحيوانات الأليفة عبر استخدام مناهج السرد والخدمات الفريدة والتعريفية”.

يشتمل عالم XOOX على الكثير من المحتوى الحصري للحيوانات الأليفة. ويتيح تطبيق الموسيقى الأكثر شعبية (XOOX M) لملاك الحيوانات الأليفة اختيار الموسيقى المناسبة لتفضيلات الحيوانات الأليفة. وقد تم تصميم هذا التطبيق، الذي تم قامت على تطويره شركة تطوير المحتوى الموسيقي التابعة لـXOOX وهي Jo studios (ورئيسها التنفيذي: Woojin Cho)، للحيوانات الأليفة التي تنتظر ملاكها ويستضيف حاليًا أكثر من 3,000 أغنية. يمكن لملاك الحيوانات الأليفة كذلك إنشاء محتوى الموسيقى الخاص بهم وتحميله وكسب النقاط مقابل الشهرة، ويمكنهم إنفاق تلك النقاط على حيواناتهم الأليفة. يضمن XOOX M تجربة استماع صديقة للحيوانات الأليفة مع مستوى ديسيبل مريح.

وبالإضافة إلى ذلك، يجري حاليًا العمل على تطوير منتج بواسطة شركة Push Pull System (ورئيسها التنفيذي: Sungmyon Song). ومن خلال تحليل أساليب التعلم العميق والاستفادة منها، فإن ذلك سيحدد ما إذا كانت الحيوانات الأليفة تستمتع حقًا بالموسيقى ولا تعتبرها ضوضاءً. سوف ينسجم المنتج بشكل سلس مع كاميرات وميكرفونات الحيوانات الأليفة، مما يوفر توصيات موسيقية مخصصة لحيواناتك الأليفة.

وبصفتك مالك حيوانات أليفة، يستحق الأمر أن تبدي الاهتمام بالحملة الحالية للترويج للتطبيق. وفي سبيل الاحتفاء بالتدشين، توزع XOOX نحو 10,000 مجموعة اختبار بول مجانية على مالكي الحسابات على مستوى العالم. توفر مجموعات الاختبار هذه طريقة سهلة لاكتشاف الأمراض من خلال بول الحيوانات، مما يجعلها مثالية للحيوانات الأليفة في المناطق ذات إمكانية الوصول المحدودة للرعاية البيطرية، مما يساعد في الحفاظ على رفاهية حيواناتك الأليفة المحبوبة.

وعلاوة على ذلك، واستنادًا إلى تدشين تطبيق مجموعات تشخيص أمراض الحيوانات الأليفة عن طريق البول باستخدام Medi Cloud، وهي شركة تحليلات جينية عالمية تعتمد على تقنية NGS، سوف تدشن XOOX كذلك تطبيقات تربط بين الحمض النووي للحيوانات الأليفة DNA واختبار تحليل الشخصية MBTI.

يتم التبرع بسنت واحد تلقائيًا إلى مؤسسة XOOX لدى التسجيل. وسوف يتم توجيه هذه المساهمات إلى الحملات على مستوى العالم التي تهدف إلى التأثير إيجابيًا على التشريعات المرتبطة بالحيوانات الأليفة. ومن خلال قيام XOOX بتمكين الحيوانات الأليفة للنهوض بدور محوري في عالمنا، ثمة إيمان قوي بأنه سيسهم بقوة في إيجاد بيئة أكثر دعمًا وملاءمة للحيوانات الأليفة.

ROSEN, TRUSTED INVESTOR COUNSEL, Encourages NuScale Power Corporation Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important Deadline in Securities Class Action – SMR

NEW YORK, Nov. 20, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) —

WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, announces the filing of a class action lawsuit on behalf of purchasers of securities of NuScale Power Corporation (NYSE: SMR) between March 15, 2023 and November 8, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”). A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 16, 2024.

SO WHAT: If you purchased NuScale securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the NuScale class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=19967 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than January 16, 2024. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, Defendants made materially false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) because of the effect of inflationary pressures on the cost of construction and power, the Company and Utah Associated Municipal Power Systems (“UAMPS”) would be unable to sign up enough subscribers to fulfill the Carbon Free Power Project (the “CFPP”); (2) Standard Power did not have the financial ability to support its agreement with NuScale; and (3) as a result, defendants’ positive statements about the Company’s business, operations, and prospects were materially misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.
