OTTAWA, Jan. 30, 2019 – betterU Education Corp. (the “Company” or “betterU”) is pleased to provide an update on the Company’s global partnership growth.

Over the last several years, betterU has been focused on the development of the Company’s global business and operational pillars required to build the foundation that support Education for All through a single education-to-employment ecosystem. The scope of betterU’s vision is to address global complexities facing education and create a system that overcomes barriers such as exclusiveness, poverty, gender inequality, affordability, conflict, caste systems, and technology limitations while striving towards the goal of open access to education in all its forms across entire nations. â€œWe believe it is only through strong partnerships and collaboration that the barriers to education can be overcome. The quality and diverse education of many creates an opportunity that no other platform will be able deliver. We are proud to be partnering with so many organizations who share this same belief,” said Kate O’Neil, Director of Partnerships at betterU.

betterU is pleased to be joined most recently by some of the world’s most recognized educators such as: Rosetta Stone, a global language learning leader with innovative digital solutions; HubSpot Academy, the learning arm of HubSpot Inc. and global leader in inbound marketing and sales education; FutureLearn, Europe’s largest online learning platform with partnerships with over a quarter of the world’s top universities;  and Simplilearn, a world leader in accredited professional certification training in 150+ countries.

By the end of 2016 betterU was able to offer just 235 courses through our global partnerships, by 2017 close to 12,000, by 2018 close to 30,000 and today the company is closing in on nearly 52,000 courses offered through our global partners. Over the years our partnership base has grown to include many prestigious organizations such as:  Acadgild, Adobe, Aspiring Minds, Babbel, BSE Varsity, ByDegrees, Career Academy, CareerCo, Carleton University, Global Academy, CoachTube, Digital Vidya, Ed4Training, Ed4Career, Ed4Credit, EdCast, eduCBA, Eduonix, Edureka, edX, Eliquo, Expert Rating, Finsafe, Fullbridge, FutureLearn, Genext, GetcertGo, GlobalExam, GoSkills , Henry Harvin, Hope Research & Practice Institute, HubSpot Academy, IACT Global, ICI Distance Learning, ICICI Direct Center for Financial Learning, IELTS Online, ISEL Global, Intern Theory, IL&FS (Englishbolo & Geneo), Imarticus, Imurgence, Internshala, John Academy, LabInApp, LawSkills, Meritnation, Open Colleges, Paddle, Playablo, Pluralsight, Pointsbuild, PTT, Rosetta Stone, Simplilearn, Simpliv, SKILLDOM, Skillshare, Skillsoft, Sound Basics, Stone River E-Learning, Swift Elearning, TCYonline, Technology Ed, Topper Learning, Toppr, TrakInvest, Transneuron/iTrack, Udemy, VuBiz, Wall Street Prep, Whizlabs, WIISE, Wintellect with many more in the pipeline.

The distribution of content across betterU’s platform continues to advance as their global team focuses on areas that are required to support the learning spectrum.

To drive significant revenue opportunities for a business model such as betterU, the Company has had to put in place a foundation that can support mass education and solve for the significant barriers preventing access.  The only way to be able to successfully educate and skill mass populations such as India, while meeting the individual learning needs, is to have enough partnerships providing quality and diverse educational content incorporated into one platform.

While betterU continues to pioneer and innovate, the company recognizes that what is needed to move the needle are groups like World Economic Forum and UNESCO, and a focus on UNESCO’s Sustainable Development Goals, particularly SDG4. The perceived impossibility of solving Education for All is starting to take shape as a real possibility through the Company’s efforts and continued partnership growth.

#Copper climbs to one-week high on #China demand hopes $LBSR $TMBXF $MIN.ca

Posted by AGORACOM-JC at 11:06 AM on Monday, October 22nd, 2018

  • Copper prices climbed to one-week highs on Monday due to expectations of stronger demand after authorities in top consumer China said they would take measures aimed at bolstering growth and liquidity
  • Benchmark copper on the London Metal Exchange was up 1.2 percent at $6,292 a tonne at 0919 GMT from an earlier $6,331.50 a tonne, the highest since Oct. 15.

Imaduddin October 22, 2018

LONDON: Copper prices climbed to one-week highs on Monday due to expectations of stronger demand after authorities in top consumer China said they would take measures aimed at bolstering growth and liquidity.

Benchmark copper on the London Metal Exchange was up 1.2 percent at $6,292 a tonne at 0919 GMT from an earlier $6,331.50 a tonne, the highest since Oct. 15.

China’s central bank governor said last week it would roll out targeted measures to help ease company financing problems and encourage commercial banks to boost lending to private firms.

“The news from China is encouraging for metals,” said Eugen Weinberg, analyst at Commerzbank. “Measures that add liquidity will help in the short to medium term, but it won’t solve the problem of indebtedness, a problem for some years now.”

CHINA TAX: China’s tax cuts next year could exceed the equivalent of 1 percent of gross domestic product, a central bank adviser said, in a sign policymakers might be considering another round of tax reductions.

GROWTH: China’s economic growth cooled to its weakest quarterly pace since the global financial crisis, with regulators moving quickly to calm nervous investors as a years-long campaign to tackle debt risks and the trade war with the United States began to bite.

DEMAND: China accounts for about half of global copper demand estimated this year at around 24 million tonnes.

China is “multiplying its efforts to support the economy, and in particular, the infrastructure sector amid domestic and international headwinds,” such as the trade war with the United States and high debt levels, Fitch Solutions said in a note.

The country’s demand for copper, an economic bellwether, “will improve over the coming months as property completions and grid investment picks up and demand from the autos and consumer sectors remain buoyant,” added the research house.

TECHNICALS: Strong upside resistance for copper is at the 100-day moving average, currently at around $6,320 and support is at $6,115, the 55-day moving average.

STOCKS: Traders say significantly higher copper prices in China could encourage further outflows from LME approved warehouses to those monitored by the Shanghai Futures Exchange.

LME copper stocks at 154,225 tonnes have tumbled 27 percent since Sept. 24, while those in ShFE warehouses are up about 27 percent over the same period to 140,789 tonnes.

PRICES: Aluminium was up 1.2 percent at $2,028, zinc  gained 1.3 percent to $2,660, lead added 1.4 percent to $2,020, tin rose 0.1 percent to $19,190 and nickel was up 1.4 percent to $12,615 a tonne.

$GR.ca Great Atlantic Collects Sample for Preliminary Tungsten Sorting Studies on Its 100% Owned South Quarry Tungsten Property, Newfoundland

Posted by AGORACOM-Eric at 9:16 AM on Monday, June 25th, 2018

https://s3.amazonaws.com/s3.agoracom.com/public/companies/logos/564603/hub/GREATATLANTIC_LOGO_TESTER-e1480712241913.jpg

  • Collected a bench scale metallurgical sample of tungsten bearing vein material from its South Quarry Tungsten Property
  • Sample processed utilizing ore sorting technologies to evaluate viability of processing the tungsten bearing veins on the Property.
  • The Property hosts tungsten mineralization in multiple areas, including high grade pegmatite veins in the area of two quarries in the northern region of the Property

Vancouver, British Columbia (FSCwire)GREAT ATLANTIC RESOURCES CORP. (TSXV.GR) (the “Company” or “Great Atlantic”) is pleased to announce it has collected a bench scale metallurgical sample of tungsten bearing vein material from its South Quarry Tungsten Property, located in east-central Newfoundland. The sample will be processed utilizing ore sorting technologies to evaluate the viability of such technologies for processing the tungsten bearing veins on the Property. The Property hosts tungsten mineralization in multiple areas, including high grade pegmatite veins in the area of two quarries in the northern region of the Property. Previous grab samples collected by Great Atlantic from the two quarries exceeded 1% WO3 with some samples exceeding 5% WO3 (News Release of November 19, 2015).

Tungsten bearing pegmatite veins occur in the northern region of the property including at a quarry referred to as the South Quarry and an adjacent smaller quarry. The veins were first reported in the area of these quarries during the 1980s. Great Atlantic confirmed high grade tungsten mineralization (scheelite) in veins in rubble and bedrock at the two quarries during 2015 (News Release of November 19, 2015). Eleven rubble grab samples exceeded 5% WO3 (W % x 1.26 equals WO3%). A 20 cm long channel sample along a 15cm wide vein in the small quarry returned 2.96% WO3 while a grab sample from a 0.25 meter wide vein in the South Quarry returned 11.94% WO3.

 

Great Atlantic recently collected a bench scale sample of tungsten bearing vein material from the South Quarry for preliminary metallurgical studies. The sample will be processed utilizing ore sorting technologies to evaluate the viability of such technologies for processing the tungsten bearing veins on the Property. Great Atlantic is currently discussing ore sorting options with various processing companies.

Corporate Update – Business Development

Blockchain Technology

The Corporation has created a wholly owned subsidiary, Paragon Blockchain Inc. (“Paragon”) to commence the process of implementing blockchain technology. Paragon has entered into a memorandum of understanding with an undisclosed blockchain company (the “UBC”) to advise and develop a new set of blockchain applications for the Corporation. The UBC will act as technical advisor and initiate the process of developing a new set of blockchain applications that will integrate, amongst other things, artificial intelligence (“A.I.”) for the purpose of sorting critical procurement opportunities within US government agencies for Marcon International Inc. (“Marcon”), Fox-Tek Canada Inc. (“Fox-Tek”).

Blockchain technology has the potential to unlock substantial new opportunities capable of impacting the business of Marcon. Specifically, Marcon seeks to create an eco-system in the supply chain management of clients to change the dynamics of the scoping and bidding process by providing vendors and subcontractors with A.I. data mining tools to proactively drive the process.

Blockchain technology is of critical importance to Fox-Tek as well particularly the expansion of its’ non-intrusive technology in the oil and gas industry, whose clients include many of the biggest companies in the world. Fox-Tek believes a common system of record connecting data collected for events is of paramount importance to clients. The Corporation will create a platform that will allow for the analysis of data that incorporates an auditing system built for regulatory and quality assurance oversight. The platform will implement a distributed blockchain ledger using smart contracts. These smart contracts provide customization of blockchain data.

Fox-Tek Segment

Fox-Tek continues to support its independent sales agents and distributors primarily outside of North America with the intent of utilizing their local contacts and established relationships within the oil and gas industry to expedite the distribution of Fox-Tek’s products in the local jurisdictions.

After a very successful first introductory trip to India, Fox-Tek has submitted a number of technical proposals and bids on a number of different projects based on the Corporation’s various technologies. One of the more interested oil companies has requested a bid for 2 large EFM systems to be placed on vessels within a refinery. The client has provided a sample plate for testing purposes that would lead to a custom design for that specific material. The Corporation is also working on introducing our leak detection technology for long distance applications in India.

The Corporation has initiated talks with the Ontario Centres of Excellence (“OCE”) to supplement a number of high quality personnel within the OCE. This includes having a Post Doctorate Fellow to come to the offices of the Corporation and provide a full assessment on the company’s data analysis techniques and to look at ways to better manage our large database of data.

Through OCE, Fox-Tek, along with the McMaster University’s Centre of Opportunity, will be developing an innovative constant current source. This will be used across all of the Corporation’s EFM products, providing its existing and new clients with a better quality of analysis with the use of a high precision constant current source. A full prototype demonstrator has been completed.

The Corporation has been working to fulfill its obligations toward the engineering and field services to meet the requirements of the contract announced on July 10, 2017 with one of the Corporation’s largest and long standing clients in North America.

The Corporation is still working closely with the Trans Africa Pipeline project (“T.A.P.”) to provide non-intrusive sensing equipment which will verify the integrity of the pipeline composite at key locations. In addition to the non-intrusive sensing equipment, Fox-Tek will provide optical based sensing technology which would allow T.A.P. to monitor the right of way zones from possible third-party intrusions. The last update was that partial financing is completed and the site survey will be concluded for the Desalination Plant will be underway later in 2018.

The company is continuing with the qualification process with Petrobras to become a supplier of corrosion detection monitoring systems, optical strain/pressure/temperature sensors & leak detection technology.

The Corporation is working with FiBos on two separate applications to monitor pressure in injectors. These injectors are critical to the plant operations since failures could lead to slowdowns or shutdowns of operations. A proof of concept was successfully completed and we are current working Phase 2

Sales of EFM Corrosion Monitoring Systems

The Corporation has successfully completed 3 site surveys for one of its largest and long standing clients in North America and is negotiating a contract with the client to convert a competitor’s technology to Fox-Tek’s EFM technology.

The Corporation continues to work closely with engineering firms and major oil and gas companies in the Middle East, England, in addition to all the major Canadian companies. There have been increased interest in the Corporation’s products from a number of overseas markets including India and the UK. The Corporation entered into a contract in 2016 with a company in the U.K. for the supply of a custom built EFM system for a laboratory. This system was shipped out in the first quarter of 2017 and installed in the second quarter of 2017. The Corporation is confident this could lead to future orders for more portable and mobile systems that could be used for periodic monitoring for less critical applications.

The Corporation is also negotiating a contract for sale of another EFM unit to another of its clients.

DMAT Platform

The Corporation continues to enhance the DMAT platform (Data Management and Analysis Tool). Response from customers utilizing the DMAT service has been very positive. For DMAT, the revenue stream is guaranteed when a customer acquires the hardware. The Corporation has successfully negotiated new contracts with several clients, for engineering services and data analysis, for the 2017 fiscal year and beyond.

Leak Detection Technology

Fox-Tek’s leak detection technology has the potential of becoming a disrupting technology within the oil and gas sector due to its ability to detect minute amounts of volatile organic compounds present in hydrocarbon leaks. Due to the nature of the technology, it will likely have fewer false alerts unlike a number of competing technologies.

  1. The Corporation has received a contract for a system to detect oil on water in a drainage culvert.
  2. The Corporation has been invited to be part of an onsite technical review for the use of its technology to monitor leaks in a pipe, within a tank farm. A budgetary/technical proposal was provided to the client. The pipe is estimated to be about 500 meters long. A site survey will be conducted end of April followed by contract negotiations
  3. Fox-Tek has successfully completed a valuation of its leak detection technology by a large consortium consisting of a number of oil and gas companies.
  4. Fox-Tek is working closely with CANMET on the development of a new sensor technology (RFID corrosion sensor) to be used as a way to determine the damage of time on pipeline coatings. A letter of interest was submitted pursuant to a government initiative and the company has been selected to participate in phase 2 – LOI Technical Review.

The company has an additional 5 bids for a number of applications utilizing a number of its technologies (EFM, FBG and leak detection.)

Marcon Segment

Marcon provides procurement and support services to existing and new projects worldwide in the energy sector. Initially Marcon had focused on providing services in the energy sector but moved on to government contracts and government services. Marcon has two subsidiaries, Marcon USA and Marcon UK, to help enhance and support its logistic and sales operations. Over the years it has established a good reputation and has been a consistent performer for its clients in the government as well as the international oil and gas industry.

Marcon has built an impressive pipeline of quotes in 2018 along with increased bidding activity. Majority of the larger bids and quotes for Marcon are time consuming both in preparation of the bidding process and with the client and the end users. Marcon has successfully signed numerous deals year to date and will continue to do so and update the public through periodic press releases. Backlog sales in Marcon for the period ending March 31, 2018 were $819,000.
