BULLYING - iWitnessBullying.org
The statistics are staggering: more than 13 million kids—1 in every 4—experience some form of bullying, and 88% of 13-17 year olds witness cyber-bullying on social media. While kids may want to stand up against bullying, they may not know how or may fear repercussions. New teen-targeted PSAs feature celebrities and bold animation letting teens know that many of their peers also want to put an end to bullying and that together, with the right tools, they can make a difference. The campaign's message—"I Am A Witness"—is brought to life vividly with the striking Witness emoji that teens can use to support someone who is being bullied in texts or online, with other bullying prevention resources available on www.IWitnessBullying.org.

UpTV put together this social experiment to see if people sitting at a bus stop would intervene when they witnessed a little girl being bullied. It could be true that every person did stop the bullying when they saw it, or this could be a cleverly cut together ad. Either way, it's amazing the lengths people went to in order to stop a behavior they saw when they were in school.
All it takes is one person to make a difference in someone's life.

About Sage Analytics:
Sage Analytics has created a shift in the cannabis industry by adopting FDA-approved technology currently in use in the pharmaceutical industry, to test potency in marijuana with a high degree of accuracy and affordability. Depending on the application, the devices from Sage Analytics can replace or augment current testing methodologies, which are expensive and often insufficient due to the inherent drawbacks of testing small sample lots that ultimately are destroyed and never sold. Consumers, regulators and business owners are demanding quicker and more accurate testing solutions, and Sage Analytics provides a significant component to improving this industry-wide challenge.
