$UUUU Digital Innovation: Gateway to the Future of Mining

While the natural resource industry seems to have taken a little while to join the fourth industrial revolution, progress is being made steadily as automation is adopted and implemented. The benefits of automation include payload optimization achieved by computers in a way that could not be replicated by people.

Global mining equipment producer CR Mining is among many that are dedicated to developing more technology for the natural resource industry. The company’s head of product strategy, Kevin Greenwood, explained that the digitization of mining had various benefits. Among them those benefits are the following:

  • Improvement in efficiency and productivity based on a deeper understanding of the mining process, valuable data analytics and better sensors.
  • The removal of variability, especially around manned equipment and operators, with the growing adoption of automation.

Additionally, the development of sensing devices that report detailed and complex information has also led to more productivity and fewer accidents on site. Greenwood goes further to explain that CR Mining is in the lead with regard to digital transformation because the company is focused on not letting its clients down.

Another key technological innovation is a reporting platform developed with features that are vital for mines. The Orion Data Analytics platform has been designed to provide machine performance and real -ime productivity data to operators at the mining site. The platform then conveys this data to either a tablet or mobile device for mining-site personnel. In addition to this, the platform offers insight on items such as the following:

  • Operator performance
  • Dig unit duty
  • Truck payload performance
  • Dig unit productivity

It should be noted that users of the platform can also customize the database and its tools to provide an account of additional factors.

As the mining industry shifts its gears into Industry 4.0, the adoption and implementation of automation will improve many — and perhaps all — mining processes, which will benefit not only mines but also the environment.

Digital innovation in mines reduces the environmental impact that they have on the environment while simultaneously reducing the energy consumed on a site. The elimination of fatalities will also produce safe working environments for mine personnel, which may make it easier to venture into asteroid or deep marine mining.

Furthermore, the use of simulation-based planning in mines will allow mining companies to analyze project operational performance and processes in a virtual setting, which decreases the cost and time spent in prospecting, exploring and other mining operations.

Meanwhile, Colorado-based Energy Fuels Inc. (NYSE American: UUUU) (TSX: EFR) is dominating the uranium mining segment of the industry. The firm’s production capacity and in-ground resources are greater than those possessed by any other uranium mining company on U.S. soil.

$CLXPF Local Legislators in Massachusetts Unanimously Vote to Decriminalize Psychedelics

Last week, local legislators in Massachusetts unanimously confirmed their support for a resolution that would decriminalize various psychedelics. The Somerville City Council heard the testimony of two individuals who had benefitted personally from the use of psychedelics therapeutically before approving the measure in a 9-0 vote. This measure was also backed by the mayor.

In addition to this, some council members debated the possible medical value of psychedelic substances, especially in mental health issues, as well as the failures of the drug war.

In a written statement to legislators, the Heroic Hearts ProjectBay Staters for Natural Medicines and Decriminalize Nature declared that by decriminalizing entheogenic substances, the state could make harm-reduction strategies the norm as health-care providers and therapists adopted these plants for spiritual, psychological and physical relief.

The organizations also stated that Somerville had the chance to not only put public health above imprisoning individuals in cases of abuse of controlled substances and addiction but also allow loved ones, neighbors and friends to seek the spiritual and physical relief that they require.

Under the approved measure, the enforcement of laws against psychedelics such as ayahuasca and psilocybin mushrooms would be among the city’s lowest priorities. The measure also requested that the county prosecutor stop pursuing cases for individuals who had been charged with distribution or possession of entheogens.

The resolution states that no employee, officer, commission, board, agency or department in the City of Somerville, including employees of the Somerville Police Department, should utilize any resources or funds of the city to help in the enforcement of laws that impose criminal penalties for the possession and use of psychedelic plants by adults.

Apart from this, the measure also highlights that the city would not permit the commercial sales of these entheogenic substances nor would it allow driving under the influence of the said substances.

At the end of the meeting, city council president Matt McLaughlin stated that he loved living in a city where the agenda in question was not controversial and received undivided support.

Additionally, the vote of approval allows Somerville to join other cities across the country that have also ratified psychedelics decriminalization. The first jurisdiction to decriminalize psychedelic substances was Washington, DC, through last year’s November ballot. Other cities that have also decriminalized the possession of fungi and plant-based psychedelics include Ann Arbor, Michigan; and Santa Cruz and Oakland, both in California.

Last year’s November election also saw Oregon become the first state in the United States to legalize the use of psilocybin mushrooms for therapeutic purposes.

In neighboring Canada, Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) is on course to benefit from the $25 billion legal supplements market through its range of products made from fungi.

$CNSP Tired of Dairy? Tel Aviv Researchers May Have Just What You Need, Milk From Yeast!

A researcher from Tel Aviv University has developed a way to produce dairy products from yeastProfessor Tamir Tuller from the university’s Department of Biomedical Engineering is the researcher behind this innovative development. Tuller worked together with Dr. Eyal Iffergan, a food technology entrepreneur, to set up Imagindairy, a start-up company that plans to make cow’s milk using yeast.

This development comes at a time when researchers are working on finding substitutes for milk because dairy farming damages not only the environment but also human health.

Tuller explained that Imagindairy’s objective was to create milk that contained all the nutritional contents of cow’s milk along with a similar texture, aroma and taste. The only things excluded from the equation would be the damage caused to the environment during dairy farming and the suffering that cows go through during the dairy process.

These parameters will make Imagindairy’s cheese and milk products healthier than milk that is obtained from animals because the  products will not contain somatic cells, lactose and cholesterol.

In his report, Tuller explained that the start-up also includes food experts and Strauss Company food engineers. For now, the researchers are working on leveraging the milk proteins from yeast to produce cheese using those proteins. Tuller explained that this was a long process of improvement, especially considering that the product is not similar to substitutes, such as nut milks (soy or almond milk, for example).

Tuller added that the company plans to manufacture dairy products through the introduction of yeast genomes, resulting in products similar to those derived from animals. Tuller and his lab have spent more than a decade exploring and  specializing in the engineering and modeling of gene expression through the use of machine learning, computational modeling of molecular evolution and biophysical simulations. The models are then used to facilitate the manufacture of heterologous proteins more efficiently, which in turn makes them cheaper.

Tuller explained that the genome of each living creature is comprised of genes that contain an encoded formula for making amino acid chains which manufacture proteins. However, the genome also has information that ciphers gene expression. He explained that this was a complicated process involving protein creation.

Imagindairy has been working with Tel Aviv University’s technology transfer company, Ramot, in its efforts. Ramot CEO Keren Primor Cohen states that Tuller’s groundbreaking technology could revolutionize the dairy industry.

The study findings were reported in the “News Medical and Life Sciences” journal.

Aside from researching how to generate milk from yeast, another biotech company, CNS Pharmaceuticals Inc. (NASDAQ: CNSP), has placed its focus on finding solutions to the worldwide challenge of brain tumors. The company already has a drug candidate (Berubicin) undergoing clinical trials, which is giving patients with brain tumors hope that a treatment could soon be available.

  • Loop’s solutions are also providing disparate governments with the ability to work together with shared information on COVID-19 medical and security protocols while maintaining their own local authority through control of their data repositories

The year 2020 was a make-or-break period for many businesses as they scrambled to continue their operations during the COVID-19 pandemic. Decisions had to be made about staffing levels, policies to protect the health of employees and customers, and how to best connect with customers and the product supply chain as a result of efforts to reduce the risk of transmitting a contagion responsible for killing or debilitating millions of people (https://ibn.fm/smlZw).

Internet of Things (“IoT”) data connectivity innovator Loop Insights (TSX.V: MTRX) (OTCQB: RACMF) is celebrating its “most successful year ever” after finding itself positioned with the right product and service at the right time to capitalize on the exponential growth of highly connected consumers online as a result of the pandemic.

“Throughout the year, my team and I have worked tirelessly to create products and solutions that would gain the trust of our partners … so that they could have the confidence necessary to bring this into their global customer opportunities,” Loop Insights CEO Rob Anson stated in a recap of the company’s progress (https://ibn.fm/Fvruj). “I am happy to report that we have accomplished this goal and as a result of these world-class partnerships, are now on the cusp of participating in global opportunities we never thought possible at the beginning of 2020.”

Loop has deployed its digital Wallet as part of the company’s venue management platform, which provides venue-based tracing, real-time customer engagement, and AI-driven insights. As demonstrated by Loop during its deployments at two NCAA venue bubbles, the company’s platform offers a number of real-world applications that can be applied to a number of industries, including live sports, entertainment, film, travel, and many others.

CEO Rob Anson also noted that a number of significant developments in 2020 will still have further implications for the company moving forward into 2021. Loop has existing partnerships with Amazon Web Services for networking with government leaders, two product partnerships with TELUS to promote its products, and an existing partnership with NTT DATA (a subsidiary of Nippon Telegraph and Telephone) that all offer significant potential for expansion. Additionally, the company’s partnership with Vend, has led to a number of retail opportunities through the company’s exposure to 25,000 stores in over 140 countries.

Loop’s contactless solutions are also being employed in its Digital Connect Health Platform, which was launched this month to streamline patient interaction with medical providers. Through a simple wallet pass, patients can easily check-in for appointments, receive updates on testing, and be notified in real-time about virus tracing and other critical health information all connected by a digital ID.

“The attempted implementation of wildly varying COVID-19 medical and security protocols, as well as, restriction policies by health officials and government leaders from around the world, has clearly demonstrated how divided government leaders have become by jurisdictional lines due to the lack of a single platform capable of providing uniformity and consistency in the application of policies,” Loop’s news release about the platform stated (https://ibn.fm/1OQSn). “Recognizing this breakdown, in conjunction with input from those same government leaders, Loop Insights developed the Digital Connect Health Platform to be capable of connecting Provincial and Federal systems while allowing Provinces to fully maintain their jurisdictional authority by managing their own internal data repositories.”

Loop’s ability to provide governments and the private sector with the means of connecting their current legacy and antiquated systems is “so revolutionary that it has attracted the attention of global technology companies and has positioned Loop for success within healthcare,” Anson stated.

$WTER Well Positioned for Post-COVID ‘Homebody Economy’

  • Consumers bracing for COVID’s impact into 2022 with what is being dubbed “homebody economy”
  • Pandemic has led to demand spikes, changes in consumer supply and buying patterns
  • WTER has seen significant market share growth; ideally positioned to continue to expand

A recent survey indicates that consumers in a post-pandemic environment are likely to be cautious in their buying habits, as many expect continued impact moving into 2020; survey respondents indicated an estimated 40% increase in intent to purchase online (https://cnw.fm/yrmni). (The Alkaline Water Company (NASDAQ: WTER) (CSE: WTER) has an aggressive growth strategy that includes a direct-to-consumer, e-commerce platform— www.A88CBD.com — along with a compelling digital-marketing campaign, which place the company in a strong position in the post-COVID environment.

“Consumers continue to shift to online shopping across categories, with many consumers planning to shift almost completely online after COVID-19,” reported a recent McKinsey and Company survey. “Americans are trying new digital habits and intensifying usage of digital behaviors such as grocery delivery and restaurant delivery.”

These consumers are looking for both convenience and value as they search out new brands. While many Americans are eager to spend more time with family and friends, they are not eager to return to grocery stores and restaurants. What is being dubbed the “homebody economy” is expected to stick post-COVID. Around 53% of Americans believe their routines will not return to normal until well into 2021 or even later.

Major shifts in consumers’ online spending focus on small businesses and e-commerce. This was seen in consumers’ online shopping patterns during Cyber Monday 2020 (with an increase in 15.1% from 2019), Small Business Saturday (with 30.2% growth) and Sunday (23.7% growth). Consumers are also focusing their purchases on groceries and health and wellness products (https://www.cnw.fm/oci3Q).

WTER looks to be well positioned to benefit from the new buying patterns. The top bulk-alkaline-water brand is committed to strengthening its presence in the e-commerce and online grocery shopping spaces as the demand for flavored waters, sustainable packaging and CBD are leading in health, wellness and lifestyle trends. The company has two online sites: one for CBD-infused products — www.A88CBD.com — and one for its flagship beverage products — www.TheAlkalineWaterCo.com.

“The pandemic has led to demand spikes and changing consumers supply and buying patterns, which we believe have finally begun to normalize,” WTER CEO Ricky Wright stated during the company’s November earnings call (https://cnw.fm/QQ3BZ). Wright also noted that the company had implemented aggressive promotional spending over the summer, resulting in increased market share.

“According to the total U.S. all-sales channels Nielsen’s report dated October 3, our flagship brand has been the fastest-growing, non-flavored, value-added water of the top 10 brands over the last 13-, 26- and 52-week periods,” he said. “Per Nielsen’s over the last 26 weeks, our brand has grown 17.7% compared to the category growth of a negative 0.3%. Over the previous 13 weeks, our retail sales have exceeded our quarterly average. And we’re robust — 23.2% more than double the category growth. In the last 26 weeks, we have also gained roughly 0.4% market share. This is equivalent to almost $8 million in annual retail sales. During the same period our top selling SKU has become one of the top 10 in the value-added water category in the entire country. We remain the only top 10 value-added water that has grown double digits in every four-week period since January.”

As one of the fastest growing alkaline water companies in the United States, WTER has continued to expand its brand. The company was able to enter the grocery and supermarket channel and provide products in more than 70,000 retail locations nationwide, including Walmart, Kroger, Albertsons, Safeway and Publix. Several single SKUs have also been introduced to these grocery stores. In addition, WTER is pursuing distribution to convenience stores, drugstores and specialty retail channels. Due to COVID, these stores have aligned their merchandise to include healthier, convenient items.

Its flagship product, Alkaline88, is a leading premier alkaline water brand available in bulk and single-serve sizes along with eco-friendly aluminum packaging options. With its innovative, state-of-the-art proprietary electrolysis process, Alkaline88 delivers perfect 8.8 pH-balanced alkaline drinking water with trace minerals and electrolytes and boasts its trademarked label: Clean Beverage.

$PBIO Announces Collaboration to Evaluate Feasibility of Ultra Shear Technology Platform to Improve Effectiveness of SinuSys Lead Product Candidate

Pressure BioSciences (OTCQB: PBIO), today announced a collaboration with SinuSys Corporation aimed at evauating the potential for PBI’s innovative Ultra Shear Technology(TM) (“UST”) platform to strengthen the effectiveness of SinuSys Corp’s lead product candidate Restora. Depending on the outcome of the collaboration, SinuSys plans to license PBI’s UST platform for use with Restora on its path to FDA approval in a phase IIb clinical study later this year. PBIO is a leader in the development and sale of broadly enabling, pressure-based instruments, consumables and platform technology services to the worldwide biotechnology, biotherapeutics and other industries. SinuSys Corporation is a medical device company focused on developing new therapies to improve the sinus health of patients. “Our patented UST platform is a unique breakthrough for nanoemulsification processing designed to resolve multiple substantive problems facing manufacturers of therapeutic drugs, nutraceuticals, and other products containing hydrophobic (water repelling) active ingredients that are at best poorly soluble in water,” said PBI chief science officer Dr. Alexander V. Lazarev in the press release. “Poor water solubility results in lower absorption rates and requires much higher loading of the active compounds into products to achieve targeted dosing and bioavailability of active ingredients for the patient. Unfortunately, poor water solubility also carries overdosing risks in conventional emulsions due to oil and water phases further separating and leading to non-uniform drug distribution. Scientific publications have demonstrated that hydrophobic active ingredients manufactured into high-quality nanoemulsions with droplet sizes of less than 100 nanometers can facilitate increased absorption and bioavailability while lowering doses and improving controlled release.  This should result in better quality products and treatment experiences for the patient, with overall reduction in product costs.”

$POAI Magnetic Nanoparticles May Be Used to Improve Cancer Treatment in the Near Future

A team of researchers from the University College London has demonstrated how small magnetic nanoparticles can be used to improve cancer treatment. Those nanoparticles can transport chemo drugs to cancer cells while also generating a minimal heating effect once stimulated through the use of an alternating external magnetic field.

The combination of chemotherapy and particle-mediated heat treatment brings about synergistic effects in the elimination of cancer cells. This proposes that the technology may be a useful tool in the fight against cancer.

The nanoparticles are made from iron oxide, which make them magnetic. These particles can be stimulated to generate a mild heating effect by using an alternating magnetic field. This mild rise in heat warms nearby cells to nearly 42º Celsius. While cancer cells die when exposed to this heat, healthy cells in an individual’s body can withstand the rise in temperature. The method is minimally invasive as the magnetic field can be directed at the site of the tumor and applied outside the individual’s body.

As mentioned above, the particles can deliver chemotherapy drugs to a tumor in an individual’s body, which helps restrict the tumor’s exposure to healthy tissues in other parts of the body. The particles have a polymer coating, which prevents them from releasing their drug until they have been absorbed in the lysosomes found in the cancer cells. The lysosomes’ acidity causes the particles’ polymer coating to disintegrate, thus allowing it to release the drug and bringing about the elimination of cancer cells. It should be noted that the coating also releases the drug when there is a rise in heat.

Thus far, researchers have tested the nanoparticles with various types of cancer cells that have been grown in the lab. The researchers discovered that delivering chemotherapy drugs, in particular doxorubicin, a common chemotherapy drug, while applying heat simultaneously resulted in synergistic effectiveness.

Nguyen TK Thanh, a researcher participating in the study, explained that the study demonstrated the huge potential of combining heat treatment delivered through magnetic nanoparticles with chemotherapy treatments. She noted that while this combination of therapy had already been approved for the treatment for rapidly growing glioblastomas, the recent study findings propose that the treatment has the potential to be used more extensively as a therapy that fights against cancer.

She added that the therapy could also be used to decrease the side effects of chemotherapy on an individual by making sure it targeted cancer cells rather than healthy tissue in an individual’s body. However, more pre-clinical tests need to be conducted to explore this option.

Many other exciting developments are coming to light within the biomedical sector. For instance, TumorGenesis, a subsidiary of Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), is working on a novel way to grow tumors within a lab without using mice or rats in the process. This technique will ease the task of studying the biomarkers of various cancers.

Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) Announces Partnership with Neurotech Pioneer to Leverage Innovative Technology for Psychedelic Therapeutics

  • CYBN partners with pioneer company focused on exploring, quantifying the human mind
  • Innovative Flow technology adds exciting dimension to Cybin’s commitment to develop breakthrough treatments for mental health disorders
  • Innovative technology opens new frontier in psychedelic therapeutics

Cybin (NEO: CYBN), a life sciences company advancing psychedelic therapeutics for various psychiatric and neurological conditions, is partnering with neurotech pioneer HI, LLC dba Kernel to quantify brain activity in real time during psychedelic experiences (https://ibn.fm/3AG5G). CYBN plans to do this by leveraging Kernel Flow, Kernel’s breakthrough technology, for its upcoming clinical work.

“Access to Kernel’s innovative Flow technology adds another exciting dimension to the investigative work that Cybin is doing to develop breakthrough treatments for mental health disorders such as depression and addiction,” said Cybin CEO Doug Drysdale. “Currently, clinical investigators rely on limited subjective information from patients. The ability to collect quantitative data from our sponsored drug-development programs is potentially game changing in terms of our ability to measure where psychedelics work in the brain in real time, and how we ultimately design our future therapeutics.

“We are delighted to partner with Kernel to study the utility of Flow in sponsored clinical settings,” he continued. “This new cornerstone component of our sponsored clinical programs follows a record-setting capital raise, listing on the NEO Exchange and the acquisition of Adelia Therapeutics Inc., which added significant scientific capabilities, novel molecules, delivery mechanisms and intellectual property.”

In announcing the agreement, Cybin noted that the absence of the data that this partnership may provide has been a limitation in the progression of new molecules targeting neurological disorders. “Kernel’s technology opens new frontier in psychedelic therapeutics by acquiring longitudinal brain activity before, during and after a psychedelic experience, enabling quantification of what was previously subjective self-reporting,” said the company, noting that the Kernel technology is unique among brain-scanning technologies and is the first commercially scalable time-domain functional near-infrared spectroscopy system.

Based in Los Angeles, Kernel is comprised of ia team of neuroscientists, physicists, engineers, programmers, and experiment and operations experts focused on exploring and quantifying the human mind. The Kernel Flow is a head-worn, scalable, noninvasive neuroimaging system that leverages time-domain functional near-infrared spectroscopy, widely recognized as a gold standard optical method for detecting hemodynamics of the cerebral cortex.

Compared to traditional near-infrared spectroscopy devices, time-domain systems obtain richer brain signals by applying light in short pulses and precisely capturing the arrival time distribution of scattered photons from each pulse. Cybin plans to use Flow measurements as analogues of local neural activity during psychedelic experiences; the company anticipates that the quantitative measurements provided by Flow could enhance the development, delivery and scaling of its psychedelic therapeutics.

As part of the agreement, Cybin plans to take delivery of Flow in Q2 2021 and will then undertake sponsored studies in a range of clinical conditions. The company will use information, data and insights collected by Flow technology in the design of future clinical studies.

$CNPOF Mails Circular for Special Meeting of Shareholders and Announces Receipt of Interim Court Order for Plan of Arrangement

TORONTO Jan. 20, 2021 – Canopy Rivers Inc. (” Rivers ” or the ” Company “) (TSX: RIV) (OTC: CNPOF) today filed and mailed the management information circular (the ” Circular “) and related materials in connection with the special meeting (the ” Meeting “) of shareholders to be held virtually on February 16, 2021 at 10:00 a.m. Toronto time).

In light of the ongoing coronavirus pandemic and to mitigate against its risks, the Meeting will be held in a virtual only format via live audio webcast, available to all stakeholders at http://web.lumiagm.com/261351529 , password “canopy2021” (case sensitive). During the audio webcast, shareholders will be able to hear the Meeting live, and registered shareholders and duly appointed and registered proxyholders will be able to submit questions and vote while the Meeting is being held.

At the Meeting, shareholders will be asked to consider and, if deemed advisable, to pass a special resolution approving the previously announced plan of arrangement (the ” Transaction “) with Canopy Growth Corporation (” Canopy Growth “) (TSX: WEED, NASDAQ: CGC), pursuant to which Rivers will transfer three portfolio assets to Canopy Growth in exchange for $115 million in cash, 3,750,000 common shares in Canopy Growth, and the cancellation of all the multiple voting shares (” MVS “) and subordinate voting shares (” SVS “) of Rivers held by Canopy Growth. As part of the Transaction, the Company will also change its corporate name to “RIV Capital Inc.”

In addition, Rivers is pleased to announce that on January 14, 2020 , it was granted an interim order by the Ontario Superior Court of Justice (Commercial List) (the ” Court “) authorizing various matters, including the holding of the Meeting and the mailing of the Circular.

The Company’s board of directors, other than certain conflicted directors (the ” Board “), unanimously approved the Transaction following a unanimous recommendation of a special committee, which was composed of directors independent of Canopy Growth, TerrAscend Corp. (” TerrAscend “) and management of Rivers. Both the special committee and the Board determined that the Transaction is fair to, and in the best interests of, the Company and unanimously recommend that shareholders vote in favour of the Transaction at the Meeting.

Benefits to Rivers Shareholders

Rivers believes the Transaction will propel the Company to its next phase of growth. The Company believes the Transaction will provide the following benefits, among others:

  • Enables the Company to access new investment opportunities: Upon completion of the Transaction, the Company will be in a position to comprehensively re-evaluate its business and investment strategy and pursue previously unavailable opportunities, and in particular, investments in, or acquisitions of, opportunities in the U.S. market. As such investments or acquisitions may be inconsistent with the policies of the TSX, the Company is initiating the process to de-list from the TSX and list its securities on a stock exchange that does not prohibit such investments or acquisitions.
  • Unlocks value for the Company: The Transaction allows the Company to unlock and realize the value of the TerrAscend exchangeable shares, which have significant liquidity restrictions and the value of which has not been adequately reflected in the Company’s share price, as well as its interest in Les Serres Vert Cannabis Inc., a private company for which there is no published market.
  • Provides significant value and liquidity for the Company: The consideration payable by Canopy Growth pursuant to the Transaction is comprised of cash and highly liquid securities, which provides the Company with significant value and liquidity at a price that may not be available in the short to medium term in the absence of the Transaction, particularly in an uncertain economic and market environment. The Company will also have significant capital to pursue potential material investments in, or acquisitions of, established operating businesses in the U.S. cannabis market, many of which continue to experience uncertain and constrained access to capital.
  • Eliminates the Company’s dual-class share structure: Upon closing of the Transaction, the Company and its shareholders will derive a number of benefits associated with the elimination of the Company’s dual class share structure, including that:
    • shareholders will have a vote that is proportionate to their relative economic interest in the Company; and
    • the Company’s shares will be more attractive for purposes of raising capital or as an acquisition currency.

Meeting Materials
Shareholders should refer to the Circular and related materials for detailed instructions on how to vote and participate at the Meeting. The Circular also contains important information regarding the Transaction, and a summary of the events leading up to the Transaction, including the reasons that led the Board to determine that the Transaction is fair to Rivers and in the best interest of the Company. The Circular and related materials are available on the Company’s profile at www.sedar.com .

Shareholders can also view the Transaction details in a presentation prepared by the Company, available at www.canopyrivers.com/investors .

Meeting Details
The Transaction requires the approval of at least (a) two-thirds of the votes cast by both: (i) Canopy Growth as the holder of all of the MVS; and (ii) Rivers shareholders that hold SVS, and (b) a simple majority of the votes cast by holders of SVS, excluding the votes attached to the SVS held by Canopy Growth. Canopy Growth has agreed to vote all of its MVS and SVS in favour of the Transaction.

Funds managed by JW Asset Management, the Company’s largest holder of SVS, and each of the Company’s directors and executive officers, which in aggregate represent approximately 24.5% of the outstanding SVS, excluding the SVS held by Canopy Growth, have entered into voting support agreements agreeing to vote their SVS in favour of the Transaction.

Shareholders who are unable to virtually attend the Meeting are encouraged to complete, sign, date and return the form of proxy or voting instruction form provided with the meeting materials so that as many shareholders as possible are represented at the Meeting.

For any questions or assistance with voting their proxies, shareholders should contact Kingsdale Advisors, the strategic shareholder advisor and proxy solicitation agent, by telephone at 1-800-749-9052 (416-867-2272 for collect calls outside of North America ) or by email at contactus@kingsdaleadvisors.com .

$SRAX Announces Blockchain and Digital Media Expert Lou Kerner as CEO of BIGtoken

January 19, 2021

SRAX Inc. (NASDAQ: SRAX) Announces Blockchain and Digital Media Expert Lou Kerner as CEO of BIGtoken

  • SRAX announces blockchain pioneer, digital media veteran Lou Kerner as CEO of BIGtoken
  • BIGtoken, a data marketplace that allows users to own and earn from their data, creates data sets that can be accessed by marketers for a fee
  • BIGtoken to be spun off into its own publicly-traded company through definitive agreement with Force Protection Video Equipment Corp.

SRAX (NASDAQ: SRAX), a financial technology company that unlocks data and insights for publicly traded companies, recently announced that Lou Kerner – a prominent digital media expert and cryptocurrency pioneer – will be appointed Chief Executive Officer of BIGtoken, a wholly-owned subsidiary of SRAX.

BIGtoken, a data marketplace that allows consumers to earn from the use of their data while creating data sets accessible to marketers for a fee, has recently entered into a definitive agreement with Force Protection Video Equipment Corp. (OTC: FPVD). The transaction will allow SRAX to receive 88.9% of the issued and outstanding shares of FPVD in exchange for 100% of the shares of BIGtoken and, when completed, FPVD will be renamed to BIGtoken Inc. with Mr. Kerner as CEO.

“Lou has been working with data and internet startups his entire career. He has a detailed understanding of blockchain and how it is applied to augment business applications,” said SRAX CEO Christopher Miglino (https://ibn.fm/c15im). “Blockchain will play a big part in the future of consumer identity and privacy and we have a shared vision with Lou on what this will look like. Not only is Lou a technology expert, but his knowledge of the capital markets will be a significant asset to BIGtoken as the company is uplisted to a nationally listed exchange.”

Mr. Kerner started his career at Goldman Sachs as a Wall Street analyst with a focus on media companies before transitioning to operating technology companies. His first role as CEO was at The .tv Corporation International – a company that operates domain registry services for websites using the .tv domain extension. Following the acquisition of .tv by Verisign in 2001, Mr. Kerner became the CEO of Bolt Media, the dominant social media company prior to MySpace. After his tenure at Bolt, Mr. Kerner became an angel investor and producer of Wall Street-style reports on companies like Facebook before launching a small VC fund in 2012 and joining Flight Ventures – a venture capital firm focused on tech companies based in Israel.

Since 2017, Mr. Kerner has been an active analyst, investor, and advisor in the cryptocurrency industry and is currently one of the most followed authors on Medium. He advises many companies in the space that include the Blockchain Coinvestors fund, the Casper protocol, Props – an SEC-approved loyalty program token, and Silver Castle – an institutional-grade digital asset manager. He is also a partner in an AngelList Syndicate that actively invests in crypto projects in addition to being the founder of CryptoMondays – the largest crypto-focused group on the Meetup social network with chapters in over 50 cities across the world.

“As the world continues to move to ensure greater internet privacy for consumers, BIGtoken is well-positioned to help brands, media companies, research organizations, and political campaigns efficiently reach consumers via compliant ad targeting and surveys,” said Mr. Kerner. “I further believe BIGtoken will greatly benefit by fully embracing crypto as an alternative reward for our growing consumer base.”

SRAX Inc. is a digital marketing and consumer data management technology company that helps companies unlock insights that reveal core consumers and their characteristics across multiple marketing channels. Soon to be spun off into its own publicly-traded company, SRAX’s BIGtoken platform allows internet users to own and earn from their data while creating valuable data sets that can be accessed by marketers for a fee.

$NETE Colorado Springs Gears Up for Surge in EVs

Colorado Springs is home to a small but growing community of electric vehicle (“EV”) drivers. The city boasts close to 2,300 electric vehicles, and according to projections, the number of EVs is expected to explode in the next two to three years, says Khaled Salem, Distributed Energy Strategies engineer supervisor at Colorado Springs Utilities. In anticipation of this influx of electric vehicles in the coming years, Utilities is evaluating where it can install and maintain EV charging stations.

By all indications, more and more Americans are expected to buy EVs over time. Although they can be quite expensive, electric cars are becoming more affordable, with industry experts projecting that they will be as cheap as, or even cheaper than, internal combustion engine vehicles by 2025. As EV makers introduce more models to the market, especially fully electric versions of the SUVs and pick-up trucks that Americans love, EV adoption is sure to increase.

Jillian Jaeger, manager of the city’s Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan, says Colorado is projected to have anywhere from 90,000 to 130,000 EVs by 2030. According to Colorado Springs Utilities manager of Energy Planning and Innovation, Michael Avanzi, Utilities initially projected residents would buy 50,000 to 300,000 EVs over the next 30 years, but that number is now expected to be much higher.

As such, the city and Utilities are working on the Electric Vehicle Readiness Plan to project how many cars the city can expect over time and identify locations that most need charging stations, among other issues. At the moment, Colorado Springs has close to 100 public charging stations, most of them provided by third-party vendors. With the number of EVs in the city expected to explode over the years, Colorado Springs may need between 7,000 and 10,000 charging stations by 2020, reports Jaeger.

These stations will be of great help to people who cannot charge their vehicles at home and don’t have access to a private charging option. Additionally, Jaeger says, Utilities wants to provide charging stations for long-distance travelers. Salem adds that Utilities would like to build some of these new charging stations, provide the electricity to charge EVs and manage the stations. Since the company is owned by the City of Colorado Springs, it could gain a market advantage by passing the cost of service down to the customers.

Salem says that if the Colorado Springs City Council approves the plan, Utilities could start building new charging stations in the latter half of 2022.

In other news, Net Element (NASDAQ: NETE), a leading financial technology company, plans to complete a merger with Mullen Technologies Inc., a manufacturer of electric vehicles based in California.

$CLXPF How the Psychedelics Industry Differs from the Cannabis Industry

Psychedelics seem to have gotten quite a boost last year when Oregonians and DC voters voted to decriminalize psychedelics. While some analysts propose that this is only the beginning for the market’s growth, and that it will be similar to that of the cannabis market, this analysis has no data to its claim.

It should be noted that apart from their legality, the two substances have little in common. Comparing psychedelics to marijuana is also difficult, considering psychedelics are made up of hundreds of molecules, plants and substances while marijuana is encompassed in one plant genus.

Even an individual describing a psychedelics company would need to be more specific because the company is not likely to be testing out or experimenting with every psychedelic substance that exists. It could be psilocybin, ketamine or even LSD.

Additionally, a more exact comparison for the psychedelics industry would be the biotech industry, as both industries work with and modify different organisms with the intention of creating commercially viable products.

It is through testing and research that biotech companies have been able to develop life-saving vaccines, gene therapy and antibiotics. In the same way, psychedelic firms are researching, testing out and developing treatments for addiction, post-traumatic stress disorder (“PTSD”), depression, anxiety and other neurological-related conditions that do not currently have cures.

While it cannot be denied that marijuana does have the potential to and sometimes has served as a treatment for particular mental health conditions such as PTSD and anxiety, marijuana has not been able to infiltrate Big Pharma and biotech as a whole.

In addition to this, despite cannabis being legal in some form in almost every state in the country, both the medical community and the FDA have not been as willing to offer their support to the industry.

This is in contrast with the psychedelics industry, which has not only received support from the FDA but has had psychedelic substances such as psilocybin and MDMA, which are being tested as treatment for various mental health conditions, actual receive breakthrough therapy designations.

This is because psychedelics provide hundreds of different molecules that can be tested and developed in the same way that Big Pharma and biotech companies develop, test out and manufacture products that are distributed in the market. With the right product in this industry, a company may earn more than 20 times the returns from one product in the market.

Apart from this, estimates show that in five years, the treatment for addiction will be valued at roughly $50 billion, the treatment market for PTSD will be worth over $7 billion, and the depression and anxiety treatment market will be worth nearly $20 billion.

Most of the research that is currently being done in psychedelics focuses on the above markets, which shows that the psychedelics industry has the potential to not only control a huge chunk of the market share but also control them as a whole if the cannabis industry does not step up. This may be the case if one considers that these conditions currently do not have reliable cures, and psychedelic research has made significant strides in finding treatments that manage the said conditions.

Many companies are jumping into the functional mushrooms and psychedelic-medicines sectors. For instance, Cybin Inc. (NEO: CYBN) is now marketing several supplements made from non-psychedelic fungi.

$POAI Subsidiary Sells Media to Top Research Medical Centers

Predictive Oncology (NASDAQ: POAI), a knowledge-driven company focused on applying artificial intelligence (“AI”) to personalized medicine and drug discovery, has announced that TumorGenesis, POAI’s wholly owned subsidiary, sold media to top research medical centers in New York City and Boston. The announcement noted that those two sales are repeat orders and focus on culturing ovarian cancer cells with specific research goals; the company also announced an additional order that came from a private company conducting research on ovarian cancer. Experts forecast that the 3D cancer cell culture media market will grow at CAGR of approximately 11.3%, reaching $3.2 billion in sales in worldwide by 2027. According to the announcement, the reason for the significant growth is because older technologies do not generally reproduce a patient’s tumor cell populations, and immortalized cells, or cells that live forever and are altered from the original tumor, do not make good models for use in drug discovery and development. The company called the idea of replicating ovarian cancer cells outside of a patient’s body and in a laboratory well plate or culture flask remarkable. “We believe that this is the future of ovarian cancer research, which creates new possibilities to coming up with new treatments for this chronic and deadly disease,” said POAI president and CEO Dr. Carl Schwartz in the press release. “In order for us to find better drugs, we have to be able to grow the right patient cells in the right media. Building the ‘living library’ of cancer cells for drug screening and discovery is the right first step. Then we can focus on how to kill them.”
