The New Staance App Launches

— September 11, 2014 —

SAN FRANCISCO, Calif.—Staance, a premier new platform for instant reaction on any issue, trend or news event, has launched its iPhone app, the company announced Thursday.

Staance is a unique application. Starting today, Staance users can influence the world around them from their iPhone. Users can now add their voice to the conversation with a simple swipe or touch of a button, agreeing or disagreeing with concise statements and instantly seeing how their voice stacks up against the world’s.

Millions of users have already engaged with Staance.com, but now app users can influence others in a way never seen before. A growing list of influencers — media, celebrities, pro athletes and more — are already using the platform to gauge global reaction and engage their networks.

“As news becomes more realtime, it has become more qualitative,” said Staance CEO Emmanuel Momoh. “Our new Staance app gives you realtime quantitative insights that let you keep your finger on the pulse of the world.”

The Staance App has three key features:

  • Engage: Don’t just consume news; interact with and even influence the stories that matter. See what’s happening in the world right now in sports, politics, lifestyle and more with a state-of-the-art technology. Using optimization algorithms and behavioral science, Staance knows what matters to our users.

  • Be heard: With Staance, an individual can move the needle of public opinion in his or her favor by taking a Staance. Staance will push your voice to the masses, enabling you to influence the conversation with a single bold statement.

  • Insights: When you share the reason why you agree or disagree, other users may in turn agree or disagree with you, enabling Staance to detect macro patterns in sentiment by applying advanced algorithms and machine-learning technology to this sentiment graph.

“The simplicity and scope of Staance is fantastic,” said Sam Amick of USA Today. “The (free) app lets people find their voice among the crowd and have fun seeing how their views compare with so many others. I haven’t seen a social media platform like it.”

I have tears in my eyes.

Like I don’t even think you guys understand the magnitude of this tweet. The sheer humanity of this, they are dying over there. No they are being SLAUGHTERED but they have the ability to still think to help people they have never met, people they will never meet. They understand what the people in Ferguson are going through, they see it because they are going through it too.

Are the protests doing more harm than good?

Thinking of skipping out on breakfast? Think again.
Sometimes people skip breakfast because they want to lose weight. Sometimes they would rather get a few more minutes of sleep. Are you one of these people? WELL STOP.In a study conducted by Harvard School of Public Health researchers, 26,902 males age 45-82 were observed over a 16 year period. They found that men who did not eat breakfast had a 27% higher risk of heart disease as opposed to those who did. Skipping breakfast makes you hungrier and more likely to eat larger portions at subsequent meals. This causes spikes in blood sugar level, which could lead to diabetes, high cholesterol levels, etc. For those who would like to drop a few pounds, skipping breakfast can actually make you gain weight. As mentioned already, you would be more likely to eat more than the next meal or eat lots of snacks (processed ones full of sugar and fat are particularly unhealthy) to fight the hunger pangs. Getting food in your stomach early on actually starts up your metabolism. The longer you delay your meal, the slower your metabolism.Eating breakfast just keeps people in a better mood in general. It also improves concentration and performance at work or school and gives us energy to survive the day. This is especially important for young children and adolescents, who are still developing their brains and bodies.Keep in mind that you have to pick the right kinds of food in order to maintain a healthy lifestyle. Don’t eat a slice of cake that screams diabetes and hope that the benefits of breakfast will protect you from dying of heart disease. Instead, have a well-balanced meal that includes fruits, vegetables, whole grains, etc. 65% of people think that breakfast is the best meal of the day. What do you think?
