Marcan Insurance specializes in helping marijuana users and marijuana businesses save time and money on their life and disability insurance.

If you use marijuana and need life insurance, you should not be paying tobacco rates on your insurance. We will help you get approved with a marijuana-friendly insurance company at no additional cost.”

— Chris Abrams

SAN DIEGO, CA, UNITED STATES, March 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Formerly Marijuana Life Insurance, Marcan Insurance remains committed to providing affordable life insurance to medical and recreational smokers while avoiding the harsh penalty of smoking rates insurance companies typically impose. Marcan Insurance represents the leading marijuana-friendly life insurance companies. We will shop them all on your behalf to save you time and money on your insurance.

Some insurance companies are more progressive and eagerly accept marijuana use. However, you have to apply with the right insurance company for your situation. Not all insurance companies are marijuana-friendly. If you apply with the wrong company, you may be declined for coverage or charged tobacco rates. No exam insurance policies are also available for marijuana users. Marcan Insurance takes the stress and mystery out of knowing which company to use. Our job is to guide you to the best company for your particular situation.

Even with HIPAA regulations, many people remain concerned about privacy, especially regarding their employers or public image. This change reflects a continuing commitment to safeguarding that privacy. It does not matter if marijuana is legal in your state yet. The right insurance company will offer you coverage in all 50 states and DC.

In addition to consumers, we work with many marijuana businesses on their insurance. This may include buy-sell life insurance, collateral assignment insurance for business loans, disability insurance or key person insurance.

Marijuana laws and legality are constantly changing. Our job at Marcan Insurance is to stay on top of these changes to advise clients accordingly. You can view instant insurance quotes on our website along with additional information, tips and advice.

Insurance is important, but can be confusing if you are not dealing with it every day. Consider us your partner to help get the best policy at the lowest cost. Contact us today for a no obligation consultation or quick quote.

Yes, you must do the work, but a little help, encouragement, and support makes it less lonely. To every person out there dreaming of flight: you can do this!”

— Jacob Peed

MANSON, IOWA, UNITED STATES, March 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — No Mountain Too High, No Dream Too Big

Ilma Vallee, a U.S. Air Force Captain, is “a great example of the success of our target audience,” says AviNation founder and publisher, Jacob Peed. “Her story takes her from her native Lithuania, to bagging groceries, to the U.S. Air Force Academy, and now to the cockpit of a KC-135. It can inspire youth with a dream of flight to keep their eyes on that dream. That’s why I started AviNation, and telling young people that it can be done is why I’m passionate about it. That message is everything.”

For her part, Captain Vallee reinforces the importance of support. “I wish I had AviNation when I was a kid,” she said [through the Air Force public affairs office]. “As I have said before, the hardest part of all this was my own self-confidence, and knowing that others have climbed the mountain you’ve just started to climb, and knowing you’re not alone on that journey – that is such a help to staying focused and keeping that dream alive. Yes, you must do the work, but a little help, encouragement, and support makes it less lonely. To every person out there dreaming of flight: you can do this!”

Lt Col Annie “Sunshine” Driscoll Air Force Recruiter Service Detachment 1 Commander told AviNation, “Representation matters! The impact of seeing other people climbing the same figurative mountain you’re climbing provides both motivation and comfort, Ilma’s story echoes that perfectly. The impact of representation and mentorship starts when we’re young and will ripple out for the rest of people’s lives. With advocates like AviNation and stories like Ilma’s we hope to inspire kids all over the world to climb their mountain, and can’t wait until the day that they can too join us in the skies!”

Founded in 2017 by Publisher Jacob Peed, AviNation (www.avinationusa.com/Winter21), is a community of inspirational resources for Pilots, Mechanics, Engineers, Designers, Technicians, and Service specialists. Our mission is to attract, educate, and empower young aviators and aviation/aerospace enthusiasts.

This program offered an opportunity for FWA’s student mentees and members to engage with senior women from Ninety One in a discussion about the growing interest and resulting career opportunities in the Environment, Social and Governance space. The session also devoted time to offer advice on developing one’s career and share lessons learned.

The featured keynote speakers, Deirdre Cooper, Ninety One’s Portfolio Manager and Decarbonization expert along with Katherine Tweedie, Ninety One’s Country Head of Canada, led the virtual discussion on the accelerated focus on ESG and how they navigated their careers to become leaders in their fields. They also shared learnings from working with clients during times of significant change and disruption. Cynthia Holahan, Ninety One’s Head of Marketing for North America, welcomed the FWA members and mentees and kicked off the session.

The FWA has transitioned its formerly in-person events to online offerings during the pandemic. FWA Education Programs Manager Michael Taylor engages with students by structuring a series of programs designed to spotlight the achievements of women in finance and to mentor and educate the next generation of female leaders in the financial industry.

For over 35 years, the FWA has served more than 6,000 high school and undergraduate student scholars from underrepresented backgrounds in the New York City area through mentoring and scholarships. “On International Women’s Day, and throughout the year, we recognize the significant contributions made by women in the financial industry and help prepare the next generation of female leaders. March is also Women’s History Month and provides a special time to celebrate key milestones and ensure we are fully engaging our next generation so that they can keep focused on their professional journey,” stated FWA's Executive Director, Ria Davis.

“At Ninety One, we are committed to hiring and retaining a diverse team, which includes encouraging talented young women to pursue career ambitions in financial services,” Ms. Holahan stated. "Our partnership with the FWA is one meaningful way to do that.”

“We’re delighted to host the FWA and their bright young professional women, especially during this challenging time for us all, so that we can offer guidance and continue to cultivate interest in our industry,” Ms. Tweedie explained. “When we work together toward a more diverse workforce in this industry, we all benefit.”

In addition to sharing career experiences, Ms. Tweedie and Ms. Cooper provided updates on growing client demand for clear and consistent ESG investing opportunities, especially in the arena of investing for decarbonization.

Ms. Cooper added, “It’s a privilege to share my personal learnings with the next generation. At Ninety One, we recognize the long term impact that Decarbonization has on the investing world as well as on the world we live in, and we’re so pleased to have opportunities to engage with these impressive and interested FWA mentees in such a crucial effort.”

“With the support of our partner firms, we are able to include programming that highlights the markets, finance and leadership throughout these challenging times. The FWA provides our members and the financial community with a vital platform to learn and grow, gaining insights from accomplished leaders in the industry,” explained FWA President Simone Vinocour. “While there is more to do, our partner firms continue to recognize the benefits of diverse leadership and are making proactive changes to ensure inclusive approaches remain a priority.”

Along with the FWA ESG mentee program, Ninety One hosted events around the world, including a global event for employees led by the Ninety One women’s network, Inspire, which featured a global fireside discussion with Alana Stott, Founder of Scott Consultancy Inc (SCI), and Roberta Annan, Founder and Managing Partner of Annan Capital Partners (ACP). Ninety One Chief Commercial Officer John Green kicked off the internal event and introduced these keynote speakers.

In addition, Ninety One’s Inspire hosted a virtual networking event for women across the Asia-Pacific region.

ElementUS Advances $800 Million Rare Earth Elements Project In Louisiana

Joint venture would convert residual bauxite from Noranda site in St. James Parish, Louisiana

GRAMERCY, LA, USA, March 8, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Today, Gov. John Bel Edwards joined DADA Holdings Chairman and CEO David D’Addario and Enervoxa CEO Vandit Verma to announce that ElementUS, a joint venture of DADA and Enervoxa, will make an $800 million capital investment to extract rare earth elements at the Noranda Alumina site in Gramercy, Louisiana, subject to a final investment decision within the next year.

DADA Holdings owns Gramercy-based Noranda Alumina and is partnering with green technology firm Enervoxa to separate rare earth elements and other valuable minerals from alumina byproducts. The Gramercy site has a 35 million dry-ton reserve of mineral-rich residual bauxite. The carbon-neutral project would result in 200 new direct jobs, with an average annual salary of more than $85,000, plus benefits. Louisiana Economic Development estimates an additional 590 new indirect jobs would result, for a total of nearly 800 new jobs in Louisiana’s Southeast Region and surrounding areas.

“Since we launched our Climate Initiatives Task Force in 2020, we continue to emphasize the extraordinary natural resources Louisiana possesses in our existing petrochemical and energy sector,” Gov. Edwards said. “ElementUS represents another example of how we can achieve a lower-carbon future by adapting the resources that already exist in Louisiana, applying new technology and leveraging our talented industrial workforce.”

Today, Noranda Alumina employs more than 400 manufacturing workers at the Gramercy site, which also serves as headquarters for New Day Aluminum, a DADA Holdings company that includes Noranda Alumina; a bauxite subsidiary in Jamaica; affiliated alumina and specialty minerals businesses in Louisiana, France and the U.K; and a ferrous and non-ferrous recycling business with operations in the southeastern United States.

“We could not be more thrilled to be partnering with Enervoxa on this game-changing green venture in Louisiana,” D’Addario said. “Rare earth elements are in short supply and are vital to national defense, critical technologies and domestic industry in general. We, alongside Enervoxa, have the opportunity to extract and commercialize valuable rare earths and other minerals while at the same time further reducing the environmental footprint at our alumina refining business and the U.S. dependence on China for these limited and technologically strategic minerals.”

“We are excited to be partnering with DADA Holdings and bringing our green technology to Louisiana and the Noranda Alumina site,” Verma added. “We have a proud history of developing and implementing green technology projects, and are confident that the partnership of ElementUS, Noranda Alumina and the great state of Louisiana will be a long and mutually beneficial one.”

From Noranda’s 3,300-acre St. James Parish site neighboring St. John the Baptist Parish on the Mississippi River, ElementUS will locate near the Noranda Alumina refinery and build a separation and extraction plant with an annual capacity in excess of 1 million tons. The residual bauxite has been confirmed to contain high concentrations of 10 of the 17 rare earth elements targeted by the U.S. Defense Logistics Agency, along with titanium, iron and other minerals and metals valuable to U.S. industry and consumer demand. Separation and extraction of the minerals will occur primarily through proprietary residual bauxite processing technology developed by Toronto-based Enervoxa.

“St. James Parish’s industrial base is broad and diverse, and we continue to welcome environmentally responsible companies who do their part to provide career employment and enrich the lives of our residents,” said Parish President Pete Dufresne. “We look forward to learning more about Noranda’s new endeavor."

“Noranda Alumina is a valued industrial partner and we are pleased to see the $800 million capital investment in this carbon-neutral project, which will create new job opportunities for residents and generate momentum for our economy,” said St. John the Baptist Parish President Jaclyn Hotard. “With a welcoming business climate, talented workforce and strong infrastructure, our region remains an ideal destination for new business ventures and St. John is proud to be a part of that progression.”

In addition to defense applications, rare earth elements provide key performance attributes for a variety of industrial and consumer products, such as batteries, magnets, refining catalysts, aircraft engines, electric vehicles, smartphones, digital cameras, computers, flat-screen TVs, lighting and medical scanning equipment. The ElementUS project would be located within the 54-mile jurisdiction of the Port of South Louisiana, the largest port by tonnage in the Western Hemisphere.

“The Port of South Louisiana is delighted at the prospect of welcoming a new stakeholder into the port district,” said Executive Director Paul G. Aucoin of the Port of South Louisiana. “This new venture will be using byproducts from Noranda to extract rare earth minerals and other commodity metals, such as iron, titanium and additional alumina. The port is also excited about the potential 200 new jobs for the residents of the River Parishes and the increased job security for the over 400 Noranda Alumina employees.”

LED began formal project discussions with ElementUS in late 2020. Subject to a final investment decision, the State of Louisiana will offer a $6 million performance-based grant and the comprehensive workforce solutions of LED FastStart® – the nation’s No. 1 state workforce training and talent attraction program. In addition, ElementUS is expected to utilize the state’s Quality Jobs and Industrial Tax Exemption programs.

“We’re proud to see the creation of this new facility will create hundreds of high-demand, high-wage job opportunities for the people of St. James Parish, St. John the Baptist Parish and surrounding areas,” said President and CEO Michael Hecht of Greater New Orleans Inc. “This announcement further proves that global companies can not only thrive in Southeast Louisiana, but that the region’s strong workforce and logistical advantages can lead to future expansions, as evidenced by this joint venture.”

ElementUS is completing its front-end engineering and design for the project. Upon a final investment decision, construction could be completed within two years in a building phase that would generate an estimated 2,200 construction-related jobs.
