phalanx of online bids, phone bidding was intense throughout the live auction. “With 100% sell
through, the sale realized over $1 million from just 115 lots of jewelry,” says Michaan’s gemologist

perfect for the red carpet. Webb’s creations in carved coral were featured, with the bracelet of
coral, enamel and diamonds fetching $39,000 and the earrings, $16,800.
Fine jewelry is a focus of each monthly auction at Michaan’s. In February’s sale Coronado offers

India selects dynaCERT Inc. technology to tackle pollution from diesel engines, major growth trajectory appears on tap

dynaCERT HG unit installed on diesel Truck

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V:DYA) HG technology reduces greenhouse gases ~50%, and reduces particulate matter ~75%, all while increasing fuel-savings up to ~20%.

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX:DYA)

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V: DYA) shares appear at the beginning of a major upside move as the market has only started to price in the reality of the magnitude developing for its HG technology.”

— Technology MarketWatch Journal

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (Frankfurt: DMJ) is the subject of a Technology MarketWatch Journal review, the full copy of which may be viewed at http://technologymarketwatch.com/dya.htm online.

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX-V: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (Frankfurt: DMJ) shares appear at the beginning of a major upside move as the market has only started to price in the reality of the magnitude developing for its HG technology — a move toward a $1billion+ market cap in 2019 is not unreasonable.

dynaCERT Inc. currently has a market cap of only ~C$80 million, miniscule compared to where the Company is headed; DYA.V’s valuation appears poised to rise dramatically as its HydraGEN (HG) technology is increasingly being recognized globally as the single most effective and practical piece of equipment businesses and governments can adopt to meaningfully reduce greenhouse gases. In the later part of 2018 dynaCERT announced the results of official European TUV testing of it’s HG units, verifying emission reduction in NOx of ~55%+, CO of 50%, and particulate matter of 75%, all while saving fuel (note: TUV is facilitated by the Federal Motor Transport Authority in Germany which does testing in the EU, nothing can be installed on a vehicle without its testing and the subsequent ABE certification license — dynaCERT is expected to receive ABE certification for Europe imminently).

So impressive is the HydraGEN technology dynaCERT is the Gold Medal winner of the prestigious 2018 Edison Award for Best New Product. Recent news such as the January 16, 2019 news of the Company achieving a milestone from the Government of India involving sizable initial orders from two of twenty nine government states, and the December 20, 2018 decision by the government of Austria to proceed with a plan to equip all state-owned diesel-powered vehicles with HydraGENTM Technology are the type of announcements this publication is anticipating to play-out with increasing frequency throughout 2019 from an array of institutions globally taking action on pollution.

Validation through both on-road and accredited 3rd party testing of dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ Technology have produced results of;
1) 6% to 19.2% reduction in Fuel Consumption,
2) 18% to 46.1% reduction in NOx emissions,
3) 25% to 48.1% reduction in CO emissions,
4) 6% to 19.2% reduction in CO2 emissions,
5) 30% to 50.1% reduction in THC emissions,
6) At least 65% reduction in particulate matter (no black smoke),
7) Increased engine power and torque,
8) Extended engine and oil life (lower maintenance costs),
9) Reduction of Diesel Emission Fuel (DEF) usage by 40% to 60%,
10) Reduction of Diesel Particulate Filter (DPF) replacement period by at least 33%.

Technology that pays for itself: Noteworthy excerpt from Sept. 24, 2018 release regarding results, "While the dynamometer test showed a 8.9% fuel savings, separately, during the on-road break-in period after the baseline test, the on-board diagnostic (OBD) record of the 2018 MAN TGX 18-460 long haul truck with an HG1-45B showed a 20.1% average fuel savings for the 188 hours of tests, travelling through the mountainous terrain of southern Germany in a heavy load commercial operation."

Diesel engines are the lifeblood of all economies, and the size of the market potential for dynaCERT’s HG technology is enormous with 100's of millions of diesel engines in use globally. The India bus market is particularly noteworthy as the overall potential is enormous; the total number of buses in India alone exceeds one-half million diesel-powered vehicles. dynaCERT recently hosted hundreds of executives from the All India Motor Transport Congress (AIMTC), whose members manage over 10 million trucks and 5 million buses in the India market.

Synopsis of HG technology and its Smart-ECU controller: dynaCERT’s technology is packaged into a small compartment that fits on the side of a truck. dynaCERT calls their units ‘HydraGEN’ (TM) or ‘HG’ for short. The unit interfaces with the truck engine’s computer and uses electrolysis to turn distilled water into pure (elemental) H2 & pure O2 gases (individually), produced and injected on demand to enhance the burn, drastically cutting harmful emissions, all while lowering fuel costs. This whole process is controlled by a smart-ECU (the brains of the unit) which can record the fuel savings and emission reductions while in operation, and provide an audit trail, essentially a greenhouse gas tracking system with the ability to account for future carbon credits. The CERT in dynaCERT stands for “Combustion Emission Reduction Technology”.

Technology MarketWatch Journal has identified numerous imminent catalysts poised to propel the share price of dynaCERT Inc. throughout 2019. The full Technology Journal review may be viewed at http://technologymarketwatch.com/dya.htm online.

Circularity Capital leads multi-million GBP investment in ZigZag Global, the leading returns solution for retailers.

ZigZag has developed a powerful solution for retailers to address the growing challenge posed by e-commerce returns”

— Ian Nolan, Circularity Capital

ZigZag grades returned products and can consolidate, refurbish, locally redistribute, recycle or even resell stock internationally.

The system reduces parcel journeys by up to 65% by identifying opportunities for the repacking and redistribution of returned products within the country of delivery, resulting in a measurable reduction in the wastage and carbon footprint associated with retail returns. ZigZag also reduces the cost and transit time of returns and has been proven to reduce customer related service enquiries by 40%.

Circularity Capital’s investment in ZigZag is consistent with its hands-on approach of backing businesses capturing new sources of value through circular business practices. Circularity Capital’s investment will see it play a key role in supporting the management team accelerate its international roll out plan. Ian Nolan, partner at Circularity Capital, has joined the ZigZag Board.

We placed significant emphasis on bringing on board an investor who brings more than just capital to the table – Circularity Capital’s specialist network and insight in the circular economy was a great fit for us in this regard“.

Мифическая русалка является символом добра, любви и щедрости, и это прекрасная возможность для послеобеденного веселья около воды, которое позволяет ребенку как бы общаться с мифической морской принцессой.

The Ritz-Carlton, Бали мы стремимся создать незабываемые впечатления для всех наших гостей, включая детей. Программа The Aquatic Goddess приносит чувство приключения, а также радость от воплощения мечты в жизнь » – говорит г-н Карим Таяч.

Русалки должны искриться, поэтому веселье начинается с красивой раскраски для лица. Преобразование завершается красочным костюмом, в котором юные девочки могут поплескаться в бассейне Ритц Кидз. Быть русалкой – это просто удовольствие, а кокосовый напиток освежит наших маленьких гостей.

Программа The Ritz Kids Aquatic Goddess развивает творческий дух ребенка, поддерживает его подвижность и что самое главное, опытная команда консультантов Ritz Kids всегда готова помочь переодеться и контролировать время в бассейне. Есть также много игрушек для бассейна и надувных лодок, которые помогут дольше развлечь малышей.

«Образ Русалки» на нашем пляжном курорте Бали стоит от 200 000 IDR за 4 часа, включая налоги и обслуживание. Посмотреть эту увлекательную программу можно здесь(here).

LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Receives Notice of Allowance for U.S. Patent Covering Stabilized Aqueous Glucagon Formulations

Patent Application Covers Glucagon Formulations for Use with Insulin Pumps and Artificial Pancreas

SAN DIEGO, CA, US, January 17, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Inc., a specialized formulation developer for the biotech and pharma industries, announced today that it has received a Notice of Allowance from the U.S. Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) related to its patent application covering a stabilized soluble glucagon formulation (“Pumpagon”). Thus, a USPTO patent examiner has determined that LATITUDE’s Pumpagon formulation is entitled to a patent under US patent law. Other Pumpagon-related international patent applications are pending.

“We are highly pleased the USPTO has recognized the novelty and industrial utility of our simple and inexpensive approach for keeping glucagon solubilized and stable in an aqueous pumpable solution,” noted Andrew X. Chen, LATITUDE’s President. “Since Pumpagon is more stable than presently marketed glucagon formulations and because it does not contain any new, irritating or unapproved ingredients, our formulation could have a very short development path to become the glucagon formulation of choice for use with the dual hormone insulin/glucagon pumps (artificial pancreas), as well as for mini-dose glucagon administration to treat children with Type 1 diabetes, two emerging diabetes therapies that will be enabled by the multi-day stable Pumpagon.”

About Pumpagon
LATITUDE’s Pumpagon can be prepared using common approved injectable ingredients or by combining a marketed dextrose solution and a lyophilized glucagon, which are both FDA-approved and have decades of proven clinical safety. Given the extensive familiarity and proven safety of its components, Pumpagon may have immediate utility for a greatly accelerated FDA approval process for use in treating diabetes.

About LATITUDE Pharmaceuticals Inc.
LATITUDE is a developer of innovative drug formulations and drug delivery systems for the biotech and pharmaceutical industries. The company is highly regarded for its intellectual property-generating and innovative approaches to developing pharmaceutical formulations for problematic and/or highly insoluble drug molecules.
