This Company Could Be A Hidden Gem of the Gaming and Esports Industry

ESE Entertainment Inc.

By Ernest Dela Aglanu, Benzinga The growth of gaming and esports has been nothing short of remarkable in recent years. From the rise of competitive gaming to the emergence of streaming platforms, the gaming industry has seen a massive surge in popularity — and only in the last five or so years has the market seen significant gaming and esports IPOs. In the early days of gaming, it was mostly a hobby for a select few. The rise of online gaming has allowed gamers to connect from all over the world, creating a vibrant and competitive gaming community. Now, with publicly traded players across the industry, both gamers and traders are getting in on the action. The emergence of esports actively being powered by companies like ESE Entertainment Inc. (TSXV: ESE) (OTCMKTS: ENTEF) has been a major factor in the growth of gaming. Esports tournaments have become increasingly popular, with millions of viewers tuning in to watch the best players compete. The widespread adoption and playing of games mean industry revenues are growing. The global gaming market was worth $202.64 billion in 2021 and is expected to expand at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 10.2% from 2022 to 2030. Innovation and technological proliferation in software and hardware are key factors fueling the market's growth. Time To Pay Attention To This Little-Known Player? ESE Entertainment was founded in 2019 by Konrad Wasiela, a former professional football player. Today, ESE has grown to consist of multiple assets and world-class operators in the gaming and esports industries. Its core expertise is in bringing new users and players to video game developers, and increasing game publicity. Through its technology, ESE becomes a key part of video game developer team’s in order to make their game launches successful. The company has provided billions of user impressions to keep the games of game publishers like Roblox Corp. (NYSE: RBLX), Riot Games, Electronic Arts Inc (NASDAQ: EA), and Ubi Soft Entertainment (OTCMKTS: UBSFY) filled to the brim. ESE asserts that its core expertise is bringing new users and players to video game developers and increasing game publicity with a consistent and proven track record. Big Data And Artificial Intelligence Another significant product offering from the company is its intelligence product, Singularity, a machine learning technology product that creates individualized marketing profiles – resulting in more efficient and profitable player acquisition campaigns. The technology opens up big query capabilities and provides real-time analytics, reporting, and machine learning for customers and the company. Additionally, ESE recently announced integrating ChatGPT into its business models. All in all, ESE is a data company and makes money in a similar way to social media platforms like Meta Platforms (NASDAQ: META)’s Facebook — by acquiring a game user by advertising and selling the user to a game publisher, ESE makes revenue based on the difference in value. The company also is expanding the same business model of user acquisitions to other lines of business within gaming to sports wagering, which is another large market itself and with higher margins based on the value of the player. Company Highlights The company’s annual revenue run rate is $64 million (based on fiscal Q3 2022 revenue). The company grew revenues by 276% between fiscal Q3 2021 to Q3 2022. ESE has strong management with proven results and industry expertise. The company has a tight capital structure with limited downward pressure. Its valuation is at approximately 0.5 times the last twelve months (LTM) revenue, with comparables being at more than twice that. Experienced Management Team And Growth Backed by Konrad Wasiela and a team with more than 50 years of combined experience in the entertainment and sports industries, the company believes it has the requisite skill pool to ensure transparency, longevity, and results. ESE is diversified with valuable resources globally and could be uniquely positioned to capitalize on the hottest consumer trends in the evolving video game industry. The company remains committed to pushing the boundary while solidifying its reputation as a leader to its investors, partners, and clients. This article was originally published on Benzinga here.

Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS: HEMP): Here Are Latest News & Developments

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The hemp industry has grown by leaps and bounds over the course of the past few years and there are some companies that are at the forefront of the revolution. One of those is Hemp Inc (OTCMKTS:HEMP), which has been involved with the hemp cultivation and processing industry in North America for more than a decade. The company boasts a network of highly experienced professionals who are involved with every niche of the hemp industry. The company also boasts of a facility stretching across 85,000 square feet in Spring Hope in North Carolina and it is currently the biggest multipurpose hemp processing facility that is present in North America. However, in this regard, it is also important to keep in mind that the company is looking to bring about growth through involvement in environmentally responsible and sustainable businesses through strategic synergies. The company claims that the hemp industry could usher in an era of greener and more sustainable manufacturing processes in the United States. As it happens, the company was in the news last week on February 17 when it announced that it had managed to complete the biggest individual product sale in its history. The company announced that four semi-trucks had hauled 120,000 pounds worth of its DrillWall product. The product in question is the only existing completely natural kenaf/hemp Loss Circulation Material of its kind and is primarily meant for the oil and gas industries. The agreement with regard to the sale had initially been signed in 2019 through Industrial Hemp Manufacturing LLC, one of Hemp Inc’s subsidiary units. As per the provisions of the agreement, as much as 1 million pounds worth of the product was supposed to be sold over a period of one year. The onset of the coronavirus pandemic put paid to those plans and the company was unable to fulfill the order. The Chief Executive Officer of Hemp Inc Gary Perlowin spoke about the latest development. He noted that the company had now gone back on track with regard to the distribution stipulation that had been agreed upon. He went on to add that the company was concurrently negotiating another order for almost everything that had been developed at its North Carolina processing facility. He stated that there were as many as 444,000 pounds of the Spill-Be-Gone product and raw kenaf to the tune of 750,000 pounds, which could be converted into Spill-Be-Gone in a matter of 60 days. Farmers had also been kept on standby so that more of the raw material could be produced so as to take care of any further orders. The hemp industry is expected to generate meaningful growth and last year on December 20 the company provided an update with regard to the latest economic situation in the industry. The company cited a report from Research and Markets titled ‘Global Hemp Market by Type’ and revealed that the industrial hemp industry was all set to clock a compound annual growth rate of as much as 21.6% by 2027. That would value the industry at $18.1 billion. The report also cited the fact that hemp could be used across a wide range of industries like construction, food, and textiles. It also pointed out that in 2022 hemp enjoyed considerable success through deployment in different industries.

Roadrunner (OTCMKTS:RRTS) Introduces LTL Service to Denver

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The commercial transportation industry is back in favor again among investors following the complete opening up of economies in the world and one of the companies which is well worth the attention is Roadrunner (OTCMKTS:RRTS). The company has managed to make one of the most remarkable turnarounds in the industry and currently provides more direct metro-to-metro long-haul shipping than any other national operator of its kind. It has a national footprint and boasts 37 metro markets, hence, it is perhaps no surprise that Roadrunner’s SmartNetwork is currently the preferred choice for companies that want to move freight reliably and quickly. Roadrunner also boasts of an award-winning platform of its own which is powered by machine learning and artificial intelligence technologies. The platform helps in providing the necessary controls and real-time visibility. The fact that Roadrunner offers so many direct metro routes makes it possible to keep rehandling to a minimum. It limits the risk of damage or loss. Last week on February 16, the company announced that it was expanding its SmartNetwork by including the new inbound service to Denver in Colorado. It was a significant new announcement from the company considering the fact that it was the first market opening in many years and was a testament to the positive momentum that Roadrunner managed to gather in recent times. Not too long ago, the company announced that it had managed to reduce transit times across 130 major lanes and had also launched the next business day service between SoCal and Chicago. The Chief Linehaul Network Engineer of Roadrunner Phil Thalheim spoke about the development as well. He noted that the company was constantly on the lookout for ways to enhance its network so as to serve its customers in a better way. That was the reason why the company had decided to start the service in Denver. Earlier in the year, on January 31, 2023, the company announced that it had been bestowed with the Elite Carrier Award by Total Quality Logistics. It was a prestigious achievement for Roadrunner considering the fact that Total Quality is the second biggest freight broker and among the biggest third-party logistics companies in North America. The company won the award after it announced that it had managed to reduce transit times in as many as 130 major lanes by 1 to 4 days. It also announced the launch of its SoCal-Chicago routes and the launch of the Haul New app, which provides its clients with real-time tracking. The company kicked off the New Year with a major announcement with regard to the biggest round of improvements that it had made to its transit routes. At the time, the company announced that it had leveraged advanced technologies like artificial technology and machine learning to provide more direct metro-to-metro long-haul routes than any other airline.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Tigard, Oregon Celebrates 35 Years and Transitions to Second-Generation Ownership

Minuteman Press International Inc

Bob and Ruth Davidson first opened their Minuteman Press franchise in Tigard, OR (a suburb of the Portland, OR greater metro area), in December of 1987. After 35+ years of hard work and dedication to their clients and their community, Bob and Ruth are ready for their next chapter and have made way for the next generation of owners. Bob and Ruth also just recently renewed their franchise agreement for the next 35 years. Their son Craig Davidson with his wife Carolyn and longtime manager Christopher Brown with his wife Lisa, have purchased the business as of February 1, 2023, and are continuing with Minuteman Press as a strong, viable and supportive franchise model, that has been one of the key components to the long-term success of this location. Minuteman Press in Tigard is located at 7555 S.W. Hermoso Way, Tigard, OR 97223. Bob reflects on 35 years of ownership, sharing his keys to success and longevity, growing the family business, and why the future is bright for Minuteman Press in Tigard. Congrats on your incredible 35 years in business! What does this milestone mean to you? Bob Davidson: “ Life is a series of changes and this is one of them. Frankly, it is time for the next generation to have their opportunity to build on, and create, their own success story. And, it is past time for Ruth and I to enjoy some of the rewards that we have been blessed with, by the success of our business.” What are 4 keys to your success and longevity? Bob Davidson: “FIRST: Ruth and I thank God for his blessing on us in this endeavor. My prayer at the time of starting the business was: ‘ God, I am not the smartest guy in the world, so please open the doors if it is in your will, or if not, hit me over the head with a brick to get my attention.’ SECOND: I would have to say without any qualification, my wife, Ruth. When we first started our business, we were 37 years-old and I left a nearly 20-year seniority position with a national trucking company as a Teamster employee truck driver. Which also meant that I gave up a union scale wage rate, with medical and retirement benefits. Ruth at that time, was a full-time homemaker to our two children. She has stood beside me as a full partner, and fully supported the decision to start our own business. But we honestly and freely admit, it was a decision and a concern to us both. She worked just as hard as I in the business every day. Her 51% ownership and my 49% ownership enable us to qualify as both a ‘Woman-owned’ and ‘Veteran-owned’ business due to my military service. So far, Ruth hasn’t fired me, although I am sure that the thought has come to her mind on occasion! Our primary roles in the business gradually formed over time, with Ruth managing the office and all that entails and also the bindery portion of our business. I was the salesman, customer service and vendor liaison for outside services and supplies. THIRD: Would be the advice, support and assistance of the Regional Minuteman Press staff and also the other local Minuteman Press owners in the area. Their advice, suggestions, guidance, experiences, help and information were of great value in our beginning years. FOURTH: This would of course be our customers. We obviously would not exist without them. While we have ‘busted our tails’ to serve them over the years, they have in turn been incredibly loyal. We still have customers today, that initially became customers in our first year of business. We are thankful for them. BONUS TIP: My advice on customer acquisition? Take anything that comes your way. But, know that your fellow, small, local businesses, will be your most loyal and long-term customers. They will be your most consistent support and strength through the years. It is ‘sexy’ to acquire a larger nationally known corporation as a client, but they typically do not last. A new purchasing agent will come in, some other shop beats your price by a percentage point or two, or they close the local office or HQ and move away. All of the above have been my experiences. Enjoy the large companies while they last, but don’t wrap your business around them.” You have just renewed your franchise agreement for the business transition. What does it mean to you, knowing the business will stay in the family and remain in great hands? Bob Davidson: “It means a great deal to us, to be able to see what my wife and I have built over the years, continue on into the next generation and chapter. We have been blessed, in having Craig and Christopher both with us for so long. That has allowed for a gradual and nearly seamless transition. For the past two years, Ruth and I have been gradually turning over more and more of the management and decision-making to ‘the boys’ as we call them. They have made all of the equipment purchases and hiring decisions for the past 2 years. They have also attended the past 2 Minuteman Press World Expo Conventions. Also, if Minuteman Press HQ was not the company that it has been, there would have been no reason for us to renew our franchise agreement. What do I mean by that, you might say? Our experience has been one of excellent, ongoing support in all aspects from Minuteman Regional & HQ. We truly appreciate their business franchise model; their ongoing support, the network of ‘Preferred Vendors’; and their early adoption of computerized pricing, which has evolved into the FLEX program that does so many functions today that were not even dreamed of 35 years ago. All these and more make a great package and a desirable business model to follow and continue with. And then there is the family aspect, not only mine, but also the Titus family. It had been my privilege to know the founder, Roy Titus. And then to also know his son Bob Titus and now Nick and Jackie Titus, as they have all ‘grown up’ in the business and taken on their leadership roles. What is most impressive to me is that they have all been ‘just folks’ … unpretentious and unassuming, kind and caring, and have become personal friends. They have never lost sight, now through three generations, that they are stewards of an amazing corporation, that while it first and foremost is a major business, it also at the same time cares for and treats everyone like extended family. Minuteman Press International also makes sure to recognize individual achievement. It is only human to be gratified, when our best efforts are recognized by others. Minuteman’s system of recognition for various sales levels, marketing, print quality, shop appearance and other awards, are all appreciated as tangible markers of various achievements. As a 25-year (now retired) veteran of the Army, I see many parallels to Minuteman’s system of such recognition, to the military’s awards of ribbons and service medals for exemplary service.” What does the transition mean for your customers? Bob Davidson: “I jokingly say that this transition means ‘ nothin g’ to our customers. That is because unless they ask, the vast majority of our clients won’t even know right away, that Ruth and I have stepped back. But it also means ‘ everything ’ to them with regards to their printing needs. I have every confidence that Craig and Christopher will continue in the same manner of excellent quality and service that we have provided up to this point. It means that between our production efforts and that of our vendors and everyone else behind the scenes, that our customers will continue to receive a top-quality product, that is consistent, timely, and fairly priced, every time. And if for some reason it isn’t, we make it right, no questions asked.” What are some of the key ways you’ve grown your business (products, marketing, networking, etc.)? Bob Davidson: “Well, the short answer is ‘ Yes ’ … all of the above. PRODUCTS: Through Minuteman HQ’s urging, guidance and vendor connections, we have branched out into many areas that we previously did not do, or consider. Mailing services, checks and deposit slips, signs and banners, promotional products, clothing / wearables. All of these are later additions to our original business model. MARKETING: When we initially began in 1987, marketing was almost exclusively ‘cold calls’ on local businesses. The follow-up was a 3” x 5” Index Card file that was sorted by ‘call back’ dates (which I still have). That and the Yellow Page ads were your two primary sources for getting your name out. Now, digital is the primary method and our Google Reviews rating of 4.9 stars along with the reviews posted there, are critical. A frequent response from new customers when we ask, ‘How did you hear about us?’, is almost always our high Google standing. Following that would be that they received a referral from another customer. NETWORKING: Do it! We have many, many customers that have come to us through our contacts in Rotary, our local Business Leads group (LeTip) and several local Chambers of Commerce. Some of those customers are among our largest accounts.” What are the high-demand products and services as well as growth areas? Bob Davidson: “Digital and offset printing are still the core tenants of our business. All other services are either in support of those, or a supplement to rounding out the main portion of that business. Our overall business mix is still approximately 1/3 offset, 1/3 digital and 1/3 outside services of all types. Digital printing is the fastest growing segment of our business.” How would you best describe your community? Bob Davidson: “Tigard is a bedroom community of the Portland Metro area. There is a good mix of local businesses of all types, small manufacturing, distribution and warehousing. It is a growing area, as many businesses are leaving the downtown core as the switch to ‘remote’ work continues. Tigard is both a residential and business community, with a healthy mix of both.” Why do you think printing remains so vital to businesses today? Bob Davidson: “People respond well to a tangible, physical piece that you can hold in your hand. It also has a tendency to be saved, whereas a digital ad piece is quickly passed by and forgotten.” What was your background before franchising and why did you choose Minuteman Press? Bob Davidson: “I was a local pickup and delivery driver for a national truck line for nearly 20 years. At the same time, I was also an Enlisted man and then Officer in the Oregon Army National Guard. I had 4 years of active duty and 21 years of National Guard service time as a reservist. Ruth was primarily a homemaker, with our two children. In the late 1980s, it was a time of great turmoil in the transportation industry – trucking, railroads and airlines, due to deregulation. Many of those businesses either merged or closed. That was cause for concern to me as I was in the trucking industry as my primary job. I and a friend of mine went to a local business fair in the summer of 1987. Of the many business ‘opportunities’ presented there, the one for Minuteman Press was the only one that seemed to have it ‘together’. Their presentation was easily understandable, well-organized and made sense. I then began to do the follow-up process of visiting existing shops. Minuteman Press also made it easy to go through all of the multitude of steps in opening a new business, such as the training, equipment, securing a location, and the initial opening and marketing phases.” What has the support from Minuteman Press International been like for you? Bob Davidson: “ TRAINING: Ruth and I went thru the 2-week training course at Minuteman HQ in New York. And when my son Craig first came to work for us, we sent him to the New York Minuteman School, so that he would also have that base training and experience. SUPPORT: As a ‘mature’ shop of 35+ years, we seldom have a need to call on either the Regional or National offices. But when we have, they have always been responsive and helpful. This would also be the appropriate time to extend our ‘ THANK YOUS!’ to Chris Jutt, Jason Kraus, Chris Multari, Mike Jutt, and Brendan Reilly for their ongoing support and responsiveness, anytime that we have had a question or an issue. When we have made major equipment purchases (recently high-speed Digital Printers, a new Challenge 30” Programable Cutter), we have received advice and support from HQ, as well as getting favorable Minuteman Press pricing. FLEX: A great program that does so very much. It is light years beyond the first computer program that we started with.” What are the biggest personal and professional rewards of owning your business? Bob Davidson: Having some control of your own future, but my joke is: ‘ I have no deadlines of my own, my customers provide them all.’ I also find it to be rewarding to be doing something that you enjoy or find satisfaction in. Every day is both the same, and yet different, as every job is unique in some way. The challenge of the coordination of a multitude of various aspects, personal, equipment and vendors, to bring a job to completion. I sometimes liken it to a conductor directing an orchestra, to bring a complete item out of many parts. When things ‘go south’ as they sometimes do, making a solution happen in some different way.” What advice would you give to other business owners or people looking to own a business? Bob Davidson: “If you never try, you will never know if you could have done it. Be bold. Join a service organization, business group and local chambers and PARTICIPATE. People do business (and refer others who they know) with those that they know and trust. Attend the regional meetings and learn from Minuteman Press and your fellow owners. Attend the World Expos and learn even more and be boosted up by your shared experiences. Follow the Minuteman Press program and advice as much as is possible. You paid for it, and it works, so use it.” Is there anything else you’d like to share? Bob Davidson: “I’d like to share a famous quote from Winston Churchill, which is also the attitude of those of us who have served in the military: ‘Never give in. Never give in. Never, never, never, never – in nothing great or small, large or petty – never give in………’” Minuteman Press in Tigard is located at 7555 S.W. Hermoso Way, Tigard, OR 97223.

Ready for Ron, the only credible independent group working to Draft Florida Governor Ron DeSantis to run for President surpassed 200,000 signatures on its petition encouraging a DeSantis candidacy. The 200,000 signatures milestone reflects the growing national movement the organization has built to draft, nominate, and elect Ron DeSantis in 2024. The Ready for Ron petition effort continues along with a recently announced $3.3 million spring advertising campaign, direct voter outreach, and expanding grassroots efforts. Veterans Ready for Ron, led by 2016 RNC Vets director Bob Carey, and Students Ready for Ron led by former Young Americans for Liberty field organizer Dylan Dean, continue recruiting volunteers at events for its field campaign. The petition is also the focus of a lawsuit Ready for Ron brought in the U.S. District Court for D.C. against the Federal Election Commission (FEC) challenging an FEC Advisory Opinion preventing Ready for Ron from sharing with Governor DeSantis the names of those who signed a petition encouraging him to run – in blatant disregard for the Constitution and clear precedent by the notoriously “Blue” agency. Ready for Ron is filing a reply to the FEC’s opposition to its preliminary injunction motion today, with oral arguments in Washington, D.C. scheduled for Tuesday, February 28, 2023. Ready for Ron’s counsel, veteran political lawyer Dan Backer, who brought the case said, “Millions of Americans want Ron DeSantis to run. Nearly a quarter million people have already publicly engaged with and joined the effort. Signing the petition is the ultimate act of political free speech and association, and there is simply no basis for the FEC to stand in the way of Americans telling someone they want him to run for office, or that they continue to support him doing so. We’re going to fight to protect our right to Free Speech and Free Association to draft DeSantis to seek the Presidency, and we’re going to win.” “Americans are ready for Ron DeSantis,” stated Ed Rollins the Ready for Ron Chief Political Strategist “If he continues to govern as a bold conservative and enact pro-freedom policies, he will be poised to run for the Republican nomination and become the man to beat Joe Biden in 2024.” Since its launch in late May, Ready for Ron has enlisted more than two hundred thousand supporters to build on-the-ground grassroots support, driven national messaging campaigns to drive up Ron’s national Leadership profile, and produced and placed advertising to convince Ron DeSantis to run for President. Ready for Ron has emerged as the most successful and credible independent organization in support of a Ron DeSantis candidacy. Following nearly nine months of work by Ready for Ron, Governor DeSantis has a growing lead in several polls in key states. The advertising efforts, phone calls, petition, and grassroots campaigns are helping generate significant leads in key battleground states and in the hearts and minds of the American people. Ready for Ron continues its TV and online advertising efforts to engage Americans to sign the petition at ReadyForRon.com to Draft Ron DeSantis to run in 2024. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with a ‘Ready for Ron’ spokesperson, please contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or dan@readyforron.com.

Chronicle raises $7.5M seed round from Accel and Square Peg to reimagine presentations

Chronicle

The slide format was created in the 1980s to design overhead projector slides. 40 years later, the way we work has completely transformed but we are still stuck with this slide format. Not only is it extremely time consuming and tedious to make great presentations, the affordances of this format make it extremely easy to make bad presentations. Today, Chronicle is announcing a new storytelling format to revolutionize storytelling for modern teams. Founded by Mayuresh Patole and Tejas Gawande, Chronicle believes that this problem needs to be solved with world-class information design. They are making a completely new way to make impactful, interactive presentations that are effortless to create. Creating presentations on Chronicle is completely different from hours of pixel pushing. Instead of spending hours tweaking slides, Chronicle allows users to create with ‘pre-designed blocks’. These blocks are interactive and are designed with world-class information design in mind. This radically reduces the time required to create a story that is highly impactful. Chronicle wants to deliver a dummy-proof creation experience - layouts are created much like arranging widgets on your iPhone meaning it's impossible to make a bad-looking Chronicle presentation. The founders have spent the last decade helping thousands of people make presentations while working in product, growth, and management consulting roles. Mayuresh Patole, Co-Founder and CEO at Chronicle, commented: “This started at university where I accidentally ended up teaching lecture halls full of students to build presentations because they thought I'd developed some kind of new interactive format. In reality, I was spending hours hacking Powerpoint to deliver a novel, interactive and engaging format. Today, with the explosion of social media, remote work, and a plethora of modern design tools, the world is ready for a new way to tell stories. I’m so excited that I can now bring that power to create visually stunning stories to anyone in seconds or minutes, not hours.” The founders realized big changes were happening in how people were telling stories - both in the creation and consumption experiences. Tejas Gawande added: “Social media has completely hijacked how people consume complex information. Attention spans have reduced by 33% since 2000 and have given rise to shorter formats across almost everything we consume. Today, most audiences stop paying attention to the presentation at the 10-minute mark. As younger generations have entered the workplace this feeling of ‘death by Powerpoint’ has only grown more acute.“ Simply making tools that lead to faster creation of poorly designed slides with chartjunk and bad information design only further aggravates this issue. Users are also spending hours making bad presentations. Employees spend, on average, more than a month every year writing and finessing these presentations. Mayuresh and Tejas were struck with a strong realization when they saw users move from conventional slide-based design tools to simpler formats that offer one core thing that users want - convenience. According to the founder, the problem is not that you cannot create great presentations with existing tools but rather that it is that the tools do not help in the process. Not only do existing tools and formats make it very difficult to deliver great presentations, they make it quite easy to make bad ones. Chronicle wants everyone to be able to share their story and be proud of the output they create. They also want to make storytelling a joyful experience. To do this they’re breaking the tyranny of the slide and replacing it with interactive blocks that work like magic. Mayuresh Patole added: “Our early adopters are able to use Chronicle to create some of the best decks in just 8 minutes instead of 8 hours. Eventually, we see Chronicle being the best way to anchor any meeting or discussion, in-person, remote, or asynchronous. It is a huge opportunity to impact millions of people who aren’t happy with how stories are told today and we are incredibly excited about it.” The founders used their platform to make their investor pitch deck that caught the eye of Accel’s Shekhar Kirani and it was quickly evident how much impact a simple, well-designed, interactive format could create. Shekhar Kirani, Partner at Accel, commented: “Chronicle is reimagining storytelling. The team is obsessed with fixing the problem and making the experience of crafting impactful stories not just bearable but joyful. Mayuresh and Tejas have put together a global, remote-first team that is fixated on solving the pressing issues that prevent people from delivering their best story, both sync and async. With its opinionated design and delightful experience, Chronicle has already started emerging as the choice of storytelling tool with modern ventures. We are thrilled to be a part of their mission and kick off a new generation of no-design tools.” Paul Bassat, founder at Square Peg, said, “It is rare to find a founder who has such a special connection with the problem. Mayuresh is absolutely obsessed and uniquely skilled to craft a new storytelling medium. When he showed us what he means by ‘a new format’ it was immediately clear that the opportunity is huge and they are thinking about this very differently. We are thrilled to be a part of their mission.” Over the course of their journey, the founders have attracted some of the most prominent thought leaders mapping out the future of work from organizations such as Apple, Google, Slack, Stripe, Superhuman, OnDeck, and Adobe. Chronicle is a fully remote team of 15, operating across the US, India, and Australia. They are currently in closed beta, rapidly iterating with their early adopters on the first version of their product that focuses on helping founders make pitch decks - a use case that is very close to the founders. They will soon be expanding to other internal and external storytelling use cases. About Chronicle Chronicle is a new format of presentations that lets you create impactful stories effortlessly. Chronicle is doing to presentations what Notion did to docs. We are not making a faster tool to make slides, we are fundamentally reimagining the format itself by taking away the design burden, making it interactive and engaging. Find out more and join the waitlist at Chronicle (chroniclehq.com) Chronicle is led by a strong team of storytellers, and product and information design leaders. Mayuresh Patole co-founded Chronicle after witnessing a significant void in the way stories are created and shared. After being repeatedly asked at talks and events about how he made his presentations, he ran a workshop on effective presentations which was a surprise success. He went on to join BCG where he would spend the next 5 years surrounded by presentations again. Tejas Gawande is a product geek who brings his deep expertise in customer and go-to-market from working across the US and 10 APAC countries in eCommerce and management consulting. He also writes a product newsletter for thousands of subscribers. Mayuresh and Tejas met at university (IIT Bombay) and have known each other for a decade.

Elsevier

Seven researchers have been awarded the 2023 OWSD-Elsevier Foundation Award for Early-Career Women Scientists in the Developing World for their contributions to research that is helping meet the challenge of food security and advancing the UN Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) 2, Zero Hunger, which focuses on agricultural productivity and sustainable food production. The winners’ research explores a wide range of ways that food insecurity can be tackled, from crop disease resilience to improved child nutrition, and indigenous plant use to increase productivity. The prize also acknowledges the scientists’ commitment to leadership, mentoring and engagement within their communities, including the use of innovative technologies in their research. Jennifer Thomson, President of the Organization for Women in Science for the Developing World (OWSD) said “Wouldn’t it be amazing if we could achieve SDG2, Zero Hunger? Our amazing awardees for 2023 are trying to do their bit to bring this about – and what a ‘bit’ that is! Just read about the research they are doing in their regions of the developing world and I am sure you will be as impressed as I was when we selected them as the winners. We wish them every success in their endeavors.” This year’s winners are: Renuka Attanayake, of the University of Kelaniya, Sri Lanka: plant and molecular biology; crop disease identification and management Carla Fabiana Crespo Melgar, of the Universidad Mayor de San Andres, Bolivia: biotechnology and microbiology; increasing agricultural productivity Haneen Dwaib, of the Palestine Ahliya University, Palestine: nutrition and dietetics; obesity and dietary interventions Eugenie Kayitesi, of the University of Pretoria, South Africa: food science and technology; improved use of indigenous plant-based foods Gabriela Montenegro-Bethancourt, of the Maya Health Alliance, Guatemala: life sciences and nutrition; maternal mortality and child malnutrition Munkhjargal Tserendorj, of the Mongolian University of Life Sciences, Mongolia: veterinary medicine, animal and food hygiene; diagnosis and treatment of animal diseases Yeyinou Laura Estelle Loko, Université Nationale des Sciences, Technologies, Ingénierie et Mathématiques, Benin: entomology, plant genetic resources and crop protection; insect pests and resistant crops “With these awards, our vision is to celebrate these impressive women scientists who are helping to make real progress towards the UN SDGs,” explained Ylann Schemm, Executive Director of the Elsevier Foundation. “We know that a quarter of all women are engaged in agriculture, which makes them more vulnerable to both climate change and resource scarcity. By focusing on food security in 2023, we want to spotlight the important research undertaken by women who are inspiring role models for communities most affected by this issue.” First awarded in 2013, the award is given in partnership by the OWSD and Elsevier Foundation. OWSD chairs a panel of distinguished scientists to select the winners, and the Foundation awards a cash prize for each winner of USD $5,000, as well as an all-expenses-paid trip to attend the 2024 5 th Global Food Security conference to provide them with vital networking opportunities.

Sidney Resources Corp (OTC:SDRC): Here Are Latest Developments & Updates

TopNewsGuide - Market News & Commentary

The mining sector has naturally attracted a considerable amount of attention over the course of the past months owing to the rising commodity prices brought about by the Russia-Ukraine war. There are a number of companies that could pique the interest of investors at this point in time and one of those is Sidney Resources Corp. (OTC:SDRC). Before discussing some of the company's recent developments, it might be wise to take a closer look at its core business functions. Three of the company's claims are the subject of exploration and development work, determining the value of iron ore bodies found on the lands. SDRC’s claims, located in Colorado, are known as Hornet, Lucky Ben, and Lucky Ben Extension, combining for a total area of 53 acres. The company additionally controls as many as 14 unpatented claims in the well-known Warren Mine District in Idaho, which encompasses an area of 300 acres. SDRC had been founded in 1896 and incorporated fourteen years later, in 1910. Back on February 15, the company announced that it had managed to have a major breakthrough after it successfully filed the patent application for its revolutionary laser mining technology with the United States Patent and Trademark Office. The patent, titled "Method and Apparatus for Using Electro-Magnetic Radiation in Narrow Vein Mining," had taken a full year to prepare, and Sydney Resources thanked the massive effort that had been put in by its engineering team. The application had been filed by the company with an application date of January 31, 2023. The patent had originally been acquired by the company from Merger Mines; however, the patent it filed is an expanded and improved version of the same. The laser mining technology could well be revolutionary considering that it is believed to be an improvement on methods related to narrow vein mining for gemstones and precious metals. Earlier in the month, on February 6, SDRC announced that it had made a new appointment to its board of directors in the form of Mike Irish of Irish Metals LLC. In this context, it should be noted that Irish is a professional engineer in the field of environmental engineering and holds BS as well as MS degrees from the University of Idaho in Metallurgical Engineering. In addition, Mike Irish holds considerable experience in the field of chemistry from a career spanning more than 35 years, during which he has been involved with the development of unique and innovative processes. Irish noted that he was excited at the development of having joined Sidney Resources as a board member. SDRC had earlier announced on January 30 of this year that it had been successful in concluding the mirror bonding work at its laser test unit. The whole project had been completed by the company with the assistance of the Material Science and Engineering Program and Clean Room at Washington State University. The entire project was the precursor to the testing work that would be conducted by the company at the Colorado School of Mines. The bonding and preparation work related to the entire process was conducted by Brooke Downing, the Senior Lab Assistant.
