Aureo Aims to Improve the Way Brands Connect with Top Marketing and Creative Talent

 Aureo is a new platform that vets marketing and creative talent, makes project connections, and manages project agreements and payment processes so brands can continue to focus on what they do best.

Freelance applicants are manually vetted before being accepted into the marketing, digital, and creative professionals network. Brands submit project requests via a streamlined RFP form on the platform. Then, freelancers are matched to projects based on skill set, experience, and value alignment. Brands can either choose a freelancer upon review or arrange a discovery call with top contenders.

Once connections are established, Aureo continues to manage contracts, invoicing, and scope changes to ensure stability for both the brand and the talent.

This year, 44% of tech founders & execs say that a significant number of their top performers have exited due to the Great Resignation, according to a new A. Team report surveying 581 tech leaders. 71% of surveyed leaders agreed that bringing on freelancers gives their business greater agility during times of economic uncertainty.

Aureo aims to ease the hiring burden when quick-turn and one-off projects for specialized talent arise. “After over a decade of experience in consulting, as a freelancer, and running an agency, it has become increasingly apparent that hiring needs are evolving for both brands and talent,” says Sam Ruiz, Co-Founder of Aureo. “We’ve been uniquely positioned between freelancers and brands long enough to hear what both sides are asking for, loud and clear. And now, we’re delivering it.”

Brands can create a free account and freelancers can apply to join the network on Aureo’s website.

GNU Radio Aims to Improve Accessibility and Usability

 GNU Radio, a free & open-source software development toolkit that provides signal processing blocks to implement software radios, has embarked on a project to make the software more accessible to everyone, regardless of which operating system they use and how much experience they have with wireless communications and digital signal processing. GNU Radio developers have identified several improvements that will make the software more accessible and easier to maintain.

These improvements include:

• Easier installation of GNU Radio on Windows and MacOS computers,

• Easier installation of out-of-tree modules (OOTs),

• Better documentation to make GNU Radio easier to use, and

• Usability features for GNU Radio Companion (GRC).

The improvements were chosen because, while they were under development already, progress on them has been hindered by lack of specialized expertise. This grant from ARDC will allow GNU Radio to hire developers with the expertise needed to push these developments forward. For example, hiring a usability expert will give GNU Radio Companion, the project’s graphical user interface (GUI), a much-improved user experience.

For each improvement project, one or more mentors (who will be volunteers from the GNU Radio leadership or core developers) will guide the work. These mentors will help the contractors stay aligned to project goals and offer feedback at periodic intervals.

About GNU Radio

GNU Radio is a free and open-source software development toolkit that provides signal processing blocks to implement software radios. It can be used with readily-available low-cost external RF hardware to create software-defined radios, or without hardware in a simulation-like environment. It is widely used in research, industry, academia, government, and hobbyist environments to support both wireless communications research and real-world radio systems.

About ARDC

Amateur Radio Digital Communications (ARDC) is a California-based foundation with roots in amateur radio and the technology of internet communication. The organization got its start by managing the AMPRNet address space, which is reserved for licensed amateur radio operators worldwide. Additionally, ARDC makes grants to projects and organizations that follow amateur radio’s practice and tradition of technical experimentation in both amateur radio and digital communication science. Such experimentation has led to advances that benefit the general public, including the mobile phone and wireless internet technology. ARDC envisions a world where all such technology is available through open source hardware and software, and where anyone has the ability to innovate upon it. To learn more about ARDC, please visit

Improve Safety and Efficiency During Calving Season with Newly Released Product from Fast Catch Calf Catcher

 Fast Catch™ is focused on the safety of ranchers and their cattle with the launch of Fast Catch calf catcher. Fast Catch’s patent pending technology provides protection for cattlemen as they work calves, while improving their efficiency by decreasing the amount of time needed to capture a calf.

With the launch of the Fast Catch™ website,, ranchers can view how the UTV-mounted calf catcher easily attaches to a UTV. Watch how the UTV-mounted calf catcher is able to navigate rough terrain and capture newborn calves. The rancher is able to safely enter the cage and work the calf while the protective mother cow looks on.

The inventor of the Fast Catch™ calf catcher, Loran Gottschalk, is a rancher and farmer from Western Kansas. After many years of ranching, and many close calls, he was attacked by a cow while working calves. When this incident landed him in the hospital, the idea for the next generation of calf catcher was born.

Fast Catch™ calf catcher solves the problems and dangers associated with working calves and makes calf processing more efficient. One person can work calves safely by themselves.

The Fast Catch™ calf catcher is durable and easily attaches to any UTV with customized linkage. This calf catcher allows for a one-person operation and can be navigated through rough terrain. In addition, minimal noise from the Fast Catch™ calf catcher reduces stress for cow-calf pairs, compared to competitors. Most importantly, the Fast Catch™ calf catcher reduces the risk of injury to the rancher and to the cattle.

You can visit the website to watch videos of the Fast Catch™ calf catcher in use and to learn more about the product. Marketing Angle was excited to help this local business with the design and launch of their new website and is dedicated to help Fast Catch™ grow with marketing services and strategies.
