The New Faces of Farming

YourUpdateTV

Recent studies have revealed that there is a population-wide deficiency in fiber, with only five percent of people in the U.S. meeting the Institute of Medicine’s recommended daily targets. Last year, as a response to this and additional nutritional gaps in American diets, three sisters in North Dakota teamed up on their family farm with a simple mission: bringing better wheat from the fields to your pantry. With Three Farm Daughters, they have done just that. Recently, the sisters teamed up on a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss Three Farm Daughters, nutrition gaps in American diets, and some simple recipes for at-home cooking. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/78na7O6aF54 Three Farm Daughters features a new line of 100% Wheat Flour and Pasta products powered by GoodWheat, which is naturally nutrient-dense with attributes like high fiber, more protein, fewer calories and less gluten. The Three Farm Daughters Wheat Flour features the great taste, texture and performance of wheat, plus higher fiber (13g per serving, five times higher than traditional flour), lower total calories (30% fewer calories than traditional flour) and reduced gluten (50% less gluten than traditional flour). The Three Farm Daughters pastas include Fusilli, Fettuccine and Linguine and offers 11 grams of fiber per two-ounce serving (five times more fiber per serving than traditional pasta), plus each serving has nine grams of protein and only 150 calories. Three Farm Daughters pastas are non-GMO, kosher-certified and have a lower glycemic response compared to that of traditional pastas. Three Farm Daughters Pasta is also nearly impossible to overcook and always al dente, empowering home chefs to confidently serve their loved ones the foods they crave most. Three Farm Daughters products are available to purchase on Amazon, at www.threefarmdaughters.com and at select grocers and retailers in North Dakota and Minnesota.

Nofar Energy and Noy Fund extend traction in the Spanish market: acquired rights in solar projects with a total capacity of 235.5 MW in a €180 million deal

Nofar Energy Ltd.

This is the third investment of Noy-Nofar Europe and the first of the Noy Fund 4, which raised ILS 2.2 billion last week The Sabinar project near the Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park in which the venture invested last year offers potential annual revenues of € 22 million and annual EBITDA of € 18 million Less than two years after announcing their entry to the Italian market, Nofar Energy and Noy Fund extend their European operations significantly. Nofar and Noy today reported they have executed an agreement to buy 90% of the stock (shareholder loan) of a corporation that holds two solar projects in Spain with a total capacity of 235.5 megawatts. The project comprises two phases: the Sabinar 1, with an estimated capacity of 152.5 MW, and the Sabinar 2, with 83 MW. The two projects, whose construction will start shortly, are located near the Olmedilla Photovoltaic Park in Castilla de la Mancha in central Spain. The Olmedilla project, which is still under construction, will offer a capacity of 169MW, bringing the total capacity of the three projects to ~404MW. The investment will be effected via Andromeda Solutions, a company held by Noy Fund (60%) and Nofar Energy (40%) The deal, including the construction costs, will total € 180 million. The projected annual revenues are €22 million and the projected yearly EBITDA exceeds €18 million. The construction of the project’s first phase will start in Q3 2021, with the second phase starting one or two quarters later. Both phases were given the material permits, including the State’s environmental compliance, development, and construction permits. The power supply to the projects had been secured too. Nofar and Noy will fund the initial stages of the project with their resources. The funding strategy for the consequent stages will be determined based on the availability of funding sources in Spain and Israel, as well the existence of Power Purchase Agreements (PPAs) and their viability given the projected evolution of Spain’s energy market in the coming years. This is the third deal entered by Noy and Nofar’s joint venture, positioning it as a strategic player in Spain’s renewable market. Noy will invest in the project through its Noy 3 and Noy 4 funds, which recently raised ILS 2.2 billion from Israel's prominent institutional investors, including Altshuler Shacham, Clal, Phoenix, Migdal, Amitim, Psagot, Metav Dash, Jewish Colonia Trust (JCT), and more. Pini Cohen, Ran Shelach, and Gil-Ad Boshwitz, directors at Noy Fund, commented, “this is a strategic follow-up investment of Nofar Energy Europe, which fits well into the fund’s goals. It results from the close collaboration between Noy Fund and Nofar. The investment reinforces the fund’s initiating, development and management capabilities of solar operations in Europe at a scale of 1GW, as well as our positioning as a dominant player in the Spanish market. Given the number of inquiries and propositions the fund received recently, we look forward to meeting the fund’s goals already in the current year.” Nadav Tene, CEO of Nofar Energy, said, “The current deal aligns with Nofar Energy’s strategic plan to extend its global operations significantly still in 2021. The combination of the project’s characteristics, advanced stages, and proximity to the Olmedilla project creates an attractive opportunity. Increasing the capacity of Nofar Energy’s Spanish projects to 400MW in 2021 represents a major leap forward in our global presence. We remain focused on identifying and developing additional operations and projects in additional markets.

Chia Launches Eco-Friendly Blockchain & New Digital Currency

Chia Network

Highlights Chia Reinvents Digital Money with Energy Efficient At-Home Farming Rewards Chia Blockchain Full Node Count approximates 2,000 in the last 24 hours and exceeds 12,500 since Launch Chia Network Inc. (“Chia”) today introduced its revolutionary eco-friendly blockchain, its new digital currency known as “chia,” as well as a new breakthrough smart transaction on-chain programming language called “Chialisp”. Chia’s blockchain is a global open-source decentralized network that operates a payment settlement system using chia, its native cryptocurrency. The Company expects its blockchain will be used in a range of transactions, including cross border payments, issuing financial assets, and stable coin issuance. Chia intends to sell software service and support for its open source blockchain and smart transaction software to governments, financial institutions, corporations, and large buyers and sellers of storage. “We are very excited to launch Chia’s new blockchain and smart transaction platform which is easier to use, more energy efficient, and more secure than existing digital money alternatives. Improving upon Proof of Work’s shortcomings around centralization, electricity consumption and poor programmability, Chia’s blockchain has the potential to become the core of a new monetary architecture,” said Bram Cohen, Chia’s CEO. As of March 2021, Chia’s blockchain has approximately 2,000 full nodes in the last 24 hours and 12,500 full nodes since launch as compared to Ethereum with 6,800 full nodes. According to Bram Cohen, a robust amount of independently-operated nodes is considered essential to the success of Chia, as its fundamental value relies upon its ability to remain decentralized. Farming will allow even the smallest farmer running a node a chance to win rewards for validating the network. Running a node is also a more secure way to self-custody chia. "Bram Cohen is one of the greatest living protocol designers (BitTorrent), right up there with Satoshi and Vitalik” -- Naval Ravikant Chia is the answer to Bitcoin’s climate problem Banks and currencies are susceptible to routine shocks from governmental mismanagement, global financial crises, and generally run on antiquated technologies. Bitcoin was launched during one of these banking crises to try to address these ongoing issues. But Bitcoin now expends approximately 64 terawatt-hours per year, a level of energy consumption comparable to the nation of Switzerland. This level of energy usage is controversial and could get worse as bitcoin adoption and energy prices increase. Further, Bitcoin script is very limited, slow to develop, and has generally required significant changes in the Bitcoin protocol that can take years to be deployed. These delays and limitations have hampered building custody and controls into the Bitcoin blockchain. Ethereum shares Bitcoin’s reliance on “wasteful” mining and has additional problems. Almost every deployed Solidity smart contract that has attracted large balances has in some way been compromised. The Solidity scripting language makes it easier to write software than to secure it. Ethereum has mostly become known for the fundraising mechanism known as an “ICO”, where the fundraiser creates new tokens on the Ethereum network to sell for bitcoin and ether - many of which have uncertain regulatory compliance. Environmentally green chia (XCH) aims to save the planet Chia ’s blockchain offers functional and environmental advantages to Bitcoin, Ethereum and Ripple’s existing platforms. The Chia blockchain is more open and accessible than existing financial institutions, more efficient and less wasteful than the Bitcoin and Ethereum blockchain, and better designed for secure smart financial transactions than the Ethereum blockchain while being more decentralized than Bitcoin, Ethereum, or Ripple. Chia’s blockchain replaces “Proof of Work” which is the consensus method that Bitcoin and Ethereum use, with the first of its kind “Proof of Space and Time” which uses significantly less energy and leads to a more decentralized and more secure blockchain. Proofs of Space harnesses unused disk space, rewarding owners of empty space for “ farming ” and Proofs of Time add security and time predictability to the network. As Bitcoin uses Bitcoin Script and Ethereum uses Solidity for programming transactions, Chia’s blockchain uses Chialisp. Chialisp, is a newly developed blockchain programming language and on-chain smart transaction development environment that will unleash the security, transparency, and ease of use that cryptocurrencies promise. Applications running on Chia’s blockchain are intended to have functionality appropriate for banking. The primary focus for the initial launch will be on core functionality such as financial controls, payments clearing and settlement, and managing the issuance of various assets. One of the primary use cases for chia is in international payments - especially in regions whose governments or financial systems are particularly volatile. The Company expects that the Chia blockchain and Chialisp will facilitate a range of transactions, including facilitating cross border payments, issuing financial assets, and stable coin issuance with best in class custody and controls. Chia - the easiest digital money to farm - is “the people’s choice” Compared to the existing modern finance platforms, chia is the easiest digital money to farm. In contrast to the technically proficient skills required to join a miner community, all people can “farm” chia at home for a fraction of the cost. Learn more about chia farming and the chia farmer reward schedule in Chia’s business Whitepaper. Earn your chia (XCH) rewards today It is straightforward to install the Chia blockchain for Windows, MacOS, and many other platforms as well. Download the Chia blockchain and earn your chia (XCH) rewards now. To learn more about Chia’s blockchain, please watch the Company’s mainnet launch video. Exchange trading - stay tuned Please expect an initial six week period where transactions will be frozen and farmers will only be receiving farming rewards. The Chia blockchain will soft fork in final transaction capabilities during this period in a 1.1 release. The soft fork will be a required upgrade before the six-week period ends. Read all about it in Chia's release notes. About Chia Network Chia Network Inc. was founded by Bram Cohen, the inventor of the BitTorrent protocol. Chia is a state-of-the-art open-source decentralized blockchain, digital currency, and smart transaction platform. Using the first new secure Nakamoto consensus algorithm invented since Bitcoin, Chia aims to operate an eco-friendly, more secure and user-friendly payment system for cross border payments, issuing financial assets, lending, escrow payments, institutional custody, and distributed identity. Chia’s “Proof of Space and Proof of Time”-based blockchain reduces waste in “Proof of Work”-based blockchains. Built to run Chialisp, the company’s newly developed on-chain smart transaction programming language, Chia’s blockchain allows its users to build and execute smart contracts and enable peer-to-peer applications. Chia believes that “digital money” should be easier to use than cash, harder to lose, and nearly impossible to steal. The Company is funded by leading venture capitalists including Slow Ventures, a16z, Naval Ravikant, Galaxy Digital, Greylock, True Ventures, MetaStable, Stillmark, DCM, and others. The Company’s Advisors include Dr. Dan Boneh, Research Partner at a16z and Applied Cryptography Professor at Stanford University; and Dr. Krzysztof Pietrzak, Cryptography Professor of IST Austria; and Ms. Katie Haun, General Partner at Andreessen Horowitz.

Healthy Living for the Whole Family

YourUpdateTV

This month of March many families are looking for ways to update their lifestyle to stay healthy for the long term. They might be looking for ways to get outdoors, improve personal care habits, eat right, or check in on loved ones. Recently, Wellness and Lifestyle Expert, Terra Wellington, teamed up with YourUpdateTV to discuss a few ideas on how to improve your wellness choices. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/d193y7OYZaE Refresh Your Wellness Routine One thing the majority of us are looking for is a boost of happiness and health this spring. Recent studies say about 50 percent of us have experienced anxiety and depression over this past year. But the good news is that your wellness routine, like good sleep and regular exercise, can really help. One fun and meaningful tech tool you can look into for your wellness is with Amazon’s Alexa on Alexa-enabled devices like Echo Show 10. It’s a great motivator for making it easy to stay on top of your health and wellness. You can say to it, “Alexa, what is my wellness tip of the day?” or “Alexa, recommend a health and wellness podcast.” Alexa can give you guided meditations, play sleep sounds, suggest workouts and recipes, and so much more. Get Your Omega-3’s 70 percent of Americans have low levels of essential Omega-3s, which support our immune system, heart, brain, joint, eye, and skin health. To help you get your Omega-3s, you can check out Kori Pure Antarctic Krill Oil. It delivers Omega-3s in their natural phospholipid form. This means it has excellent absorption in your body compared to fish oil, and it has no fishy aftertaste. Plus, it’s certified sustainable. Watch That Kids Get Their Nutrition For children, you can check out Childlife Essentials and their LiveBiotics Immune & Digestive Support, and Zinc Plus. These vitamins and supplements have been around for 20 years and can help close the nutritional gap for your kids. They are gluten-free, non-GMO, and have no artificial colors, flavors, or sweeteners. They are great tasting too, with natural ingredients. And they are available at iHerb, Amazon, Whole Foods, and Sprouts. Setting Aside Time for Personal Care After a very stressful year, it’s important for your family healthy living to set aside time for personal care. On tip to remember is to take care of your skin. It’s part of a healthy lifestyle. There’s a skincare company from the UK that has just exclusively launched at Target — it’s Amie Skincare. This line was developed by a mother for her daughter to meet the changing needs of young skin. The company’s products are unique, affordable, vegan, and cruelty-free. They have three lines, depending on your skin type, with natural ingredients and gentle enough for daily use. Each skincare regime includes a wash or cleansing balm, moisturizer, a treatment (such as a mask, mist, or polish), and biodegradable cleansing wipes. The wipes biodegrade in 15 days, which is a huge plus for sustainability!
