Big Ten Universities Entering The New Esports Realm $GMBL.us

  • In a recognition of the popularity of e-sports on college campuses, most Big Ten universities will field teams in the multiplayer online game League of Legends and compete in a style resembling conference play, in a partnership with the Big Ten Network.
  • Besides streaming competitions on the internet, the Big Ten Network will broadcast select games, including the championship in late March, weekly on its cable network, which is available to more than 60 million households nationally.

Riot Games, League of Legends’ creator and publisher, and the Big Ten Network — which is owned by Fox and the Big Ten Conference — announced the partnership Thursday morning in a joint statement. The Big Ten does not sponsor e-sports, which are not official N.C.A.A. sports.

In the first broadcast, on Jan. 30, teams from the Big Ten’s two newest members, Rutgers and Maryland, will face off, according to a Big Ten Network spokesman.

A number of popular games, including Madden-brand football video games, fall under the e-sports rubric. In League of Legends, two teams of five — composed of a set of stock characters seemingly inspired by fantasy novels — try to destroy a glowing object, called a nexus, on their opponent’s side.

In the Big Ten Network’s League of Legends season, teams in the Big Ten’s East and West divisions will play each other in best-of-three, round-robin competitions, and the top four from each division will then enter a single-elimination bracket. (The two Big Ten universities not participating this year, Nebraska and Penn State, are in different divisions. The Big Ten has 14 members.)

While lacking the mainstream visibility of traditional college sports, e-sports are wildly popular, even as spectator sports, among young people of the type sought after by both colleges and advertisers. Professional gaming contests frequently sell out major arenas, including Madison Square Garden, and several top European soccer clubs have signed e-sports playersas brand ambassadors.

Riot already runs a League of Legends College Championship, and the champion crowned by the Big Ten Network season will compete in the final rounds of that annual event.

Oman now ranked in the top 10 countries to visit in 2017 $OMAG.us

  • Oman,  only Middle East country to make the Lonely Planet list.

Neil Churchill January 13, 2017

The tourism boards at every country in the world begin each year with renewed pleas to entice visitors to their lands. But it helps to have some independent verification.

Which is why Oman Tourism must have been jumping for joy when it saw the sultanate included in Lonely Planet’s top 10 countries to visit in 2017. Named in eighth place, it is the first time Oman has featured in the Best in Travel guide since 2009, and is the only Middle East country to make the list.

In fairness, the travel publication keeps the top 10 diverse and it was unlikely to feature more than one country from the region. But its inclusion serves as further proof, if any was needed, that Oman is the Gulf’s jewel.

  • Planning is underway to drill test its lithium bearing pegmatite zone discovered in the summer 2016 exploration program on ground adjacent to Nemaska Lithium’s (T-NMX) Whabouchi Deposit and the newly discovered Doris zone

Vancouver, BC / January 18, 2017 – Durango Resources Inc. (TSX.V-DGO), (the “Company” or “Durango”) announces that planning is underway to drill test its lithium bearing pegmatite zone discovered in the summer 2016 exploration program on ground adjacent to Nemaska Lithium’s (T-NMX) Whabouchi Deposit and the newly discovered Doris zone.

On January 17th, 2017 Nemaska Lithium announced “With the Doris zone discovery in late fall it is prudent to consider the possible impact of its eastward continuance…” In the news release of November 28th, 2016, Nemaska Lithium stated, “the Doris zone, contains 5 interconnected dykes and has now been confirmed on 420m of lateral extension and up to a maximum depth of 440m where it joins the main dyke.” “Doris appears to run parallel to main zone which extends for 1.2km to the northeast.”

Durango’s 100% wholly owned NMX East ground adjoins Nemaska Lithium on the eastern perimeter where Nemaska Lithium’s Doris zone remains open, less than 1.5km from the proposed mining pit. Durango’s geological team confirmed a pegmatitic intrusion running parallel to Nemaska Lithium’s main zone where it tested positive for anomalous Lithium and rubidium as per the news release on September 21, 2016. A map of the zones comparative with Nemaska Lithium Inc. may be viewed on the Durango website.

Tetra Bio-Pharma CSO Discussing Task Force Recommendations, DEA — CFN Media $TBP.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:58 AM on Tuesday, January 17th, 2017

Tbp large

  • Exclusive interview covering the effect recent Canadian Cannabis Task Force recommendations and DEA actions could have on Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc.
  • United States government has permitted individual states to legalize the drug, but the Drug Enforcement Administration recently cracked down on cannabidiol (CBD) makers and President Trump’s cabinet picks are opponents of legalization

SEATTLE, WA–(Jan 17, 2017) – CFN Media Group (“CannabisFN”), the leading creative agency and digital media network dedicated to legal cannabis, announces publication of an exclusive interview and story covering the effect recent Canadian Cannabis Task Force recommendations and DEA actions could have on Tetra Bio-Pharma Inc. (OTC PINK: GRPOF) (CSE: TBP) as the company continues development of smokable marijuana as treatment for a variety of conditions.

The United States government has permitted individual states to legalize the drug, but the Drug Enforcement Administration recently cracked down on cannabidiol (CBD) makers and President Trump’s cabinet picks are opponents of legalization. In Canada, voters approved the nationwide legalization of cannabis with the election of Prime Minister Trudeau, but the framework governing the program is only now starting to become clear.

Tetra Bio-Pharma has already started down the pharmaceutical path by undergoing clinical trials for medical cannabis in its natural form. The company believes that smokable marijuana may provide patients with a better natural alternative to synthetic cannabinoids and extracts. With the large number of existing users, the company also has access to a lot of data to support its clinical studies.

In the interview, Tetra’s Chief Science Officer, Dr. Guy Chamberland, points out that medical cannabis patients are keen on receiving reimbursements since they cannot afford regular access without it. At the same time, physicians have been hesitant to prescribe medical cannabis without robust clinical trials demonstrating both safety and efficacy. These demands could lead to a much more ‘pharmaceutical’ approach than existing medical cannabis programs.

AMENDED: HPQ Silicon Receives 43-101 Report on Beauce Gold Property and Prepares For Spin Out And Dividend In Q1 $HPQ.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 4:59 PM on Friday, January 13th, 2017

Hpq large

  • Received required 43-101 Tech report for Beauce Gold property, a prerequisite of the listing documentation for the planned spin-out of the company’s gold assets
  • Project holds the largest historical placer gold deposit in eastern North America
  • Spin out and dividend Expected by March 31, 2017

Montreal, Quebec / January 13, 2017 – HPQ Silicon Resources Inc (“HPQ”) (TSX Venture: HPQ) is pleased to update shareholders regarding the status of its gold asset spinoff, as well as, announcing it has received the required 43-101 Technical report for the Beauce Gold property, a prerequisite of the listing documentation for the planned spin-out of the company’s gold assets.

UPDATE – SPIN OUT AND DIVIDEND OF BEAUCE GOLD FIELDS EXPECTED BY MARCH 31, 2017

On March 11, 2016, the company announced its plans to spin out its gold projects and issue a dividend to shareholders. The purpose of the spinout is to segregate the company’s valuable but diverse holdings to unlock even greater value for shareholders.

The Company will transfer all of its gold assets into a newly formed subsidiary called Beauce Gold Fields Inc./Les Champs d’Or de Beauce Inc., then dividend out 80% of the Capital of the subsidiary to its shareholders.

In order for the final transfer of Beauce from HPQ, the following steps have been taken:

1. An independent board of directors of the subsidiary Beauce Gold Fields Inc./Les Champs d’Or de Beauce Inc is in the process of being named. The new Board will be able to approve gold property transactions between Beauce and HPQ.

2. The Company has completed the required Listing Statement and prescribed documentation that will be submitted to the Canadian Securities Exchange (CSE) to be eligible for listing on the Exchange.

3. The completion of a new 43-101 on Beauce for the purposes of designating it the Property Of Merit for the new company.

HPQ-Silicon is aiming to have the spinoff completed and dividend shares of the new subsidiary delivered to shareholders during Q1 2017.

Bernard Tourillon, chairman and chief executive officer of HPQ Silicon stated: “We are very excited that the spin-out is nearing completion. We have seen a resurgence in the values of high quality gold projects and, given the fact the Beauce Gold project holds the largest historical placer gold deposit in eastern North America, we believe an independently traded Beauce Gold Fields will unlock meaningful value for our shareholders. Moreover, a singularly focused HPQ will provide an optimal environment to complete our goal of becoming the lowest cost producer of solar grade silicon metal on the planet.”

Beauce Gold 43-101 Technical Report

As part of the listing application documentation, the preparation and filing of a new 43-101 Qualification Technical report on the Beauce Gold property was required for it to become the Property Of Merit to Beauce Gold Fields.

The Company has received a 43-101 Technical report on the Beauce Gold property by Mr. Benoit Violette, P.Geo. Mr. Violette competed a full overview of the geology and of all historical and current exploration work. He concludes that in addition to the residual-alluvial mining potential for which the property is advanced in the permitting process, the Beauce Gold Project is a property of merit with a significant potential for the discovery of primary gold mineralization related to the source of the alluvial-residual deposits of the Gilbert River drainage. In the past, because of the relative ease of accessibility of the gold in this environment and the inexperience of the successive owners and operators with hard rock mining, this potential has been neglected. Further exploration is recommended to be carried-out by Beauce Gold Field Inc.

About The Beauce Gold Property

The Beauce Gold Project is a unique, historically prolific gold field located in the municipality of Saint-Simon-les-Mines in the Beauce region of Southern Quebec. Comprising of a block of claims 100% owned by HPQ Silicon, the project area hosts a six (6) km long unconsolidated gold bearing sedimentary units (a lower saprolite and an upper brown diamictite) holding the largest historical placer gold deposit in eastern North America. The gold in saprolite indicates a close proximity to a bedrock source of gold providing significant potential for further exploration discoveries.

Property Highlights

-Certificate of authorizations (CA) allowing the start of first phase mining activities on the Rang Chaussegros sector of the Beauce Gold project

-Polygonally calculated Gold Exploration Target, for the entire historical placer channel ranging between 61,000 ounces (2,200,000 m3 @ 0.87 g Au/m3) and 366,000 ounces* (2,200,000 m3 @ 5.22 g Au/m3). Potential quantity and grade is conceptual in nature, that there has been insufficient exploration to define a mineral resource and that it is uncertain if further exploration will result in the target being delineated as a mineral resource

-Significant potential for further exploration discoveries, geology suggest a proximate bedrock source of gold.

-176 acres of real estate 100% owned by HPQ Silicon

-Property held four historical gold mining operations

-Property produced the largest gold nuggets in Canadian mining history (St-Onge Nugget 43 oz, McDonald Nugget 45 oz, Kilgour Nugget 51 oz)

Mr. Benoit Violette, P. Geo is the Qualified Person as defined by National Instrument 43-101 that supervised the preparation of the information in this news release.
