CLIENT FEATURE: Robix (RZX: CSE) Revolutionary Oil Spill Clean Up Technology

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:29 AM on Thursday, October 16th, 2014

The Corporation is an “industrial products/technology” company, offering to investors a unique opportunity to participate in a leading company in the business of ownership of patents, and their development from commercialization to worldwide expansion through various business arrangements.

Featured COV Technology

 

 

 

Highly Cost Effective – Clean Ocean Vessel

  • The COV’s rapid recovery rate and large on-board storage result in low per barrel recovery cost.
  • The COV’s simple design minimizes down time for repair and maintenance.
  • A two-man crew can be easily trained and the COV vessel can operate long hours without interruption
  • Construction of the first commercial Clean Ocean Vessel is progressing, with a Q4 2014 target for launch

Design Versatility

  • COV’S can be scaled to meet various application requirements (sizes range from 10 Ft., 20 Ft., 40 Ft., 80 Ft., 100 Ft. (references to length of vessel
  • A standard 40-foot COV is 40 feet in length, 26 feet in width, and 12 feet in depth
  • The following page has a 3D visual description of a COV
  • Recently completed the engineering drawings for the Clean Ocean Vessel (COV) and ordered critical components to initiate construction on the COV

Recent Highlights

  • Creating a new business division, through a subsidiary entity, to enter into the marine industry.
  • Announced that Rick Carson, of Montreal, PQ, has agreed to join Robix as a Strategic Advisor.
  • Announced that it intends to enter into an agreement with Rayco Steel Inc., wherein Rayco shall work on completion of engineering construction drawings for the anticipated construction of the first Clean Ocean Vessel.

How the COV compares to the competition:

  • Rates of oil recovered and recovery-throughput efficiencies are noted as “oil rate of recovery” (ORR) and “recovery efficiency” (RE).
  • The water surface lifting force generated by the COV’s patented contra-rotating drums acts in a suction or pumping manner that increases the ORR compared to conventional skimmer systems and the RE of the COV is in the 90-97% range. This is competitive with best in class 21st century technology in terms of ORR and RE.
  • Further improvements to the ORR (in terms of gallons per minute) could easily catapult the COV to “top three” status, by increasing the surface area of the drums through design modifications without impairing the stability of the vessel which is inherent to the COV design.
  • When our competitors’ skimmer systems meet waves above 18 inches, they are forced to suspend service. The COV operates in rough sea conditions (as high as 8 feet waves), significantly out-performing its competitors, and stands in a class of its own.

Company Objectives

  • Seeks to establish itself as a leading intellectual property holder to help meet the worlds growing energy needs, while considering the significant requirement to find and use the most effective integrated green energy solutions.
  • Protection of the environment, whether it is on land, sea, or in the air is still a growing global concern and in the 21st century, more than ever, it is imperative that effective products and services be available. Since its incorporation, Robix has sought to expand its capability to package and deliver these critical resources.

Neah Power Partners With Silent Falcon to Integrate Fuel Cells Into Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

Formira® Hydrogen-on-Demand Technology Expected to Increase Mission Endurance and Enable Heavier Payloads; Jointly Published White Paper Available on Website

BOTHELL, WA–(Oct 15, 2014) – Neah Power Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: NPWZ) will be partnering with Silent Falcon™ UAS Technologies (‘Silent Falcon’) to integrate the formic acid reformer (Formira™) based fuel cell technology into the Silent Falcon UAV. A jointly published white paper is available at www.neahpower.com and at www.silentfalconuas.com. The fuel cell could significantly increase the mission endurance by between two times to three times the current duration, as well as enable heavier payloads. Formic acid is a safe, energy dense fuel, allowing easy handling, distribution, and refueling in remote locations worldwide, unlike compressed hydrogen.

The patent pending Silent Falcon is a solar/electric, all composite, modular small Unmanned Aircraft System (sUAS) designed for commercial, public safety, and military applications. With Silent Falcon’s solar electric propulsion system, rugged composite structure, and three interchangeable wing configurations, it is the first sUAS capable of meeting long range and long endurance mission profiles.

“We are thrilled to be partnering with Silent Falcon UAS Technologies. We are looking forward to this joint development of extending the mission endurance for their UAS,” said Chris D’Couto, president and CEO of Neah Power Systems, Inc. “The Formira technology uses a liquid fuel, and is a very attractive energy option as it does not have the low energy density, safety and handling challenges of compressed hydrogen.”

John W. Brown, Silent Falcon CEO said, “I believe the biggest advantage to having a Neah fuel cell on board Silent Falcon will not only be the extra endurance, but the ability to carry heavier and power hungry payloads. This is already one of our most important competitive differentiators and is what is attracting lots of folks to our products. Neah will also give us the ability to offer extended endurance at night, which is huge from our perspective. We look forward to integrating this technology into our UAV for a demonstrable performance advantage and the ability to serve an even wider range of markets and applications.”

Sanjay Gupta Discusses Possibilities, Challenges of Medical Marijuana

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 9:47 AM on Thursday, October 9th, 2014
Dr. Sanjay Gupta at IOP

Dr. Sanjay Gupta, Chief Medical Correspondent at CNN, spoke about the potential of medical marijuana during an Institute of Politics forum event on Wednesday evening. The conversation was moderated by Dr. Staci Gruber, an Associate Professor of Psychiatry at Harvard Medical School.

 

CNN Chief Medical Correspondent Dr. Sanjay Gupta discussed the possibilities and challenges in expanding medical marijuana at the Institute of Politics on Wednesday.

The John F. Kennedy Jr. Forum event, moderated by Harvard Medical School associate professor Staci A. Gruber, comes just two days after the Harvard-affiliated McLean Hospital announced a “landmark new program” examining medical marijuana. The program will “explore the potential impact of medical marijuana on cognition, brain structure and function,” according to the announcement, and was funded by a $500,000 gift from best-selling crime writer Patricia Cornwell.

Gupta started off the conversation by discussing his “about-face,” referring to the well-known 2013 CNN column in which he apologized for misrepresenting marijuana to the American public.

“I realized that I had in my own way probably dismissed many patients as malingers who were just trying to get stoned,” Gupta said. “And there are a lot of those people. But there are also a lot of very, very legitimate patients as well for whom not only I realized that medical marijuana was working for them, it was working for them when nothing else had.”

He discussed how he afterwards looked at the evidence and found a “very distorted picture” of marijuana in the medical world, with a disproportionate number of studies “designed to find harm.” Gupta highlighted the stigma around supporting medical marijuana as a major challenge limiting scientific research on the topic.

Gruber then shared a clip from Gupta’s documentary “Weed,” highlighting the story of Charlotte Figi, a five-year-old suffering from severe epilepsy. Charlotte and her family had tried several toxic anti-epileptic drugs—but none of them worked, and Figi was still having around 300 seizures a week.

Medical marijuana was ultimately the solution to Figi’s condition, and, as Gupta emphasized, Figi’s story is “emblematic of [the story] of hundreds of families.”

Families like Figi’s, he pointed out, are “medical marijuana refugees”: they can now gain access to medical marijuana in Colorado but can lose their children and be put in prison for drug trafficking if they attempt to leave the state.

“I think it’s interesting to see how his viewpoint changed,” Zarin I. Rahman ’18 said. “Maybe we all need to be exposed to these families that he was, to maybe change our mind on this as well.”

Gupta repeated throughout the evening that the “policy has outpaced the science.” The states, he said, are moving forward without waiting for the science, and the issue is only compounded by the fact that the “policies and the laws we have in [the US] make it challenging for the science to get done.”

The important thing to do at this point in the legalization process, Gupta concluded, is to let marijuana, like any other medicine, “stand on its [own] merit scientifically.” When more scientific studies have been conducted, he said, when that “takes away some of the stigma surrounding this [issue], we can more easily get to the point where we can establish the thresholds” for marijuana use.
