About Critical Metals
Critical Metals was formed as an investment company and, upon listing, initially intends to make equity investments into operators or near term production operators within the natural resources development and production sector in the continent of Africa. It is envisaged that such acquisition or acquisitions will trigger a reverse takeover in accordance with the listing rules. The Company intends to search initially for acquisition opportunities in the natural resources sector on known deposits and more specifically minerals that are perceived to have strategic importance to future economic growth. Commodities such as antimony, beryllium, cobalt, copper, fluorspar, gold, rare earth elements, tin, tungsten, titanium, and vanadium have been identified by several governments as “critical minerals” and so guaranteeing supplies is seen as a strategic necessity. The Company therefore believes that the market conditions for these minerals will remain strong in the short-to-long term.

AOAC INTERNATIONAL and the HEMP and CANNABINOID SCIENCE INSTITUTE Announce Cooperative Agreement

AOAC INTERNATIONAL logo

Collaboration will develop trusted scientific standards and resources for hemp producers, food processors and regulators

ROCKVILLE, MD, US, September 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AOAC INTERNATIONAL and the Hemp and Cannabinoid Science Institute (HCSI) have entered into a cooperative agreement to advance cannabis science and promote AOAC consensus standards for analyzing hemp, cannabis, and cannabinoids.

AOAC’s consensus-driven, validated Official Methods of Analysis are used by food scientists around the world to facilitate public health and safety and to promote trade.

HCSI is a non-profit, collaborative research organization that identifies, prioritizes and funds scientific research to facilitate action by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the emergence of a safe and sustainable marketplace for cannabinoid-containing products for both businesses and consumers.

“As regulatory decisions are made at the international, federal, and state level, broadly accepted scientific methods for analyzing these products are essential to providing regulators, businesses and consumers with confidence in label claims and the wholesomeness of hemp and cannabis derived products,” said Scott Coates, Program Lead for AOAC’s Cannabis Analytical Science Program (CASP).

CASP is developing analytical standards for hemp and cannabis as well as advancing scientific competence in this new industry through cannabis science training courses and a proficiency testing program for laboratories engaged in or seeking to be involved in cannabis testing.

As part of the agreement, HCSI will recognize and promote these programs, while AOAC will take a leadership role in the HCSI Test Methods Science Council. Both organizations will share communications outreach when mission appropriate.

The collaboration will provide scientific resources for the policy decisions and communications of the U.S. Food & Drug Administration and the U.S. Dept. of Agriculture as well as state, provincial and international agriculture and food authorities, and businesses.

“A common set of methodologies and standards on cannabis will allow results to be easily interpreted, shared and reproduced,” said Scott Riefler of HCSI. “Together HCSI and AOAC can reach many more scientists, regulators, and consumers about the importance of quality analytical measurements.”

The agreement was approved by the AOAC Board of Directors on September 14, 2020 at the AOAC INTERNATIONAL 2020 Virtual Annual Meeting & Exposition.

###

About AOAC INTERNATIONAL
AOAC INTERNATIONAL is a globally recognized, 501(c)(3), independent, third party, not-for-profit association and voluntary consensus standards developing organization founded in 1884. When analytical needs arise within a community or industry, AOAC INTERNATIONAL is the forum for finding appropriate science-based solutions through the development of microbiological and chemical standards.

Under Sheriff Bradshaw, crime is down 25% in the last four years, $10 million has been reinvested back into community programs, and the Sheriff’s Office has implemented reforms that are important to the Hispanic community.

Hispanos for Bradshaw has one simple goal. The coalition is focused on re-electing Ric Bradshaw Sheriff. They are working to support the Sheriff by growing their coalition, volunteering their support, and sharing important messages about the work the Sheriff has done that is important to the Hispanic community.

“Go out and vote and support Bradshaw for the Hispanic community because of the awesome work he did during hurricane Maria, he is here for the community especially the Hispanic community overall…Go out and vote, this all about voting for the right man for the job,” said Eddie Rivera, Hispanos for Bradshaw member.

AARDY Insurance Marketplace Launches Medicare & Employer Coverage Guide

AARDY Insurance Surfing

AARDY Insurance Surfing

AARDY Insurance, the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace has launched its new guide to help customers navigate Medicare and Employer Coverage.

Customers do have the option to remain on their employer coverage once they turn 65. The size of the company will determine whether Medicare itself should act as the Primary or Secondary policy.”

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, September 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AARDY Insurance, the nation's fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace, has launched its new guide to help customers navigate Medicare and Employer Coverage.

AARDY CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:

‘If Medicare was not complex enough, for those who are still working beyond the age of 65, it can get even more confusing.
Recognizing this, AARDY launched its new comparison system coupled with agent support to assist.

Customers do have the option to remain on their employer coverage once they turn 65. However, the size of the company will determine whether Medicare itself should act as the Primary or Secondary policy.

Adding to the confusion is whether or not Medicare late enrollment penalties are charged for those who still have employer healthcare coverage.

Our AARDY Medicare guides provide clarity. Moreover, our expert team have all the time in the world to discuss options and procedure.”

AARDY Insurance customers can also compare Medicare Supplements and Medicare Advantage plans to find the one that best fits their needs.

Each year, between October 15 and December 7, Medicare provides an opportunity to sign up or change plans during the Annual Enrollment Period (AEP).

AARDY donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners.
Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.

I felt that death was an equalizer for humanity, but even with death, some people still believe people of color are not worthy of living. To those who think this, I say we want to live!”

— John A. Reaves

CHARLOTTE, NORTH CAROLINA, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — New Book Release Questions 'Will I Always Be A ____ In America?'

We cannot control who and what we see, but we can control "…how we respond” once we see them.

Charlotte, NC – September 28, 2020 – In response to the racial disparity that is ever-present in America, John Reaves has released a book titled “Will I Always Be A ____ In America? A Black Man's Reflections on Living in America.” This collection of ten essays reflects on the issues faced by people of color and offers recommendations towards solving racial inequality in society.

With the book, John Reaves hopes to elevate the voices of people of color, Black men specifically, in sharing their stories and thoughts on racism in America. Reaves selected the essays in part due to their relevance, as every one of them discusses issues currently experienced by people of color on a daily basis.
These essays confront some of the most pressing racial inequalities in the United States, from police brutality to gentrification. Essay titles include "We Want to Live," "My First Confrontation with a Police Officer: Three Decades Later, I Cannot Forget It," and "The Neighborhoods I Live and Run Through: Are They a Symbol of Optimism or a Death Trap?” Every essay ends with a question to answer, encouraging thought and introspection from readers of all backgrounds.
“Will I Always Be A ____ In America? A Black Man's Reflections on Living in America” seeks to not only address racism in America but to also provide possible solutions. Reaves hopes that these essays will aid in carving a path forward and that people of color won’t be experiencing the same issues for another century.

Murray’s Pressure on FOIA Requests Pushes Carney To Lift Suspension

Demands Answers on Nursing Homes, Business Shutdown and Opening Schools

Carney’s entire COVID response has been a political game and the businesses and people of Delaware were the losers. There needs to be accountability”

— Julianne Murray

SEAFORD, DE, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — After weeks of challenging Gov. John Carney’s suspension of freedom of information requests (FOIA), it would appear that the pressure from Republican gubernatorial nominee, Julianne Murray, has pushes the career politician to amend his State of Emergency order lifting the suspension. Murray had been condemning Carney for suspending FOIA requests until 15 days after his COVID State of Emergency is lifted. Murray said that this a win for transparency. She is now requesting, via FOIA, all documents and information related to his abysmal policy of sending COVID patients to nursing homes, all documents and information on Carney’s business lockdown where big businesses were allowed to remain open and small businesses were left on the vine to die, and all information on Carney’s indecision-decision on opening Delaware’s schools.

“Isn’t it interesting that all FOIA requests have been suspended for over six months in an election year? I wonder what John Carney was trying to cover up or who he was trying to protect?” said Julianne Murray. “If he had nothing to hide then why did he ever suspend FOIA requests? You and I know the answer – he did not want to be held accountable for his failures. It was an attempted cover-up. And for those that say he wasn’t attempting to cover anything up? I would point out that the timing of this move is also calculated because they have fifteen business days to answer any FOIA requests. That doesn’t leave much time to get information out to Delawareans so they can make an informed choice. ”

“Carney’s entire COVID response has been a political game and the businesses and people of Delaware were the losers. There needs to be accountability,” continued Murray.

Murray also pointed out that this is now the third time that she has stood up to Carney on behalf of Delawareans and the third time the people have won. “First I sued him over the short-term rental ban and he lifted the ban. Second I released a Small Business Bill of Rights and he then announced a $100 million grant program for small businesses and now third I applied pressure about how wrong it is to suspend FOIA and he has now lifted the suspension I am the one showing leadership here – not John Carney.”

JLCB HEARING ON MONDAY 9/28 TO DECIDE QUESTIONABLE “EMERGENCY” 2021 STATE GROUP BENEFITS CONTRACT PUSHED BY CVS CAREMARK

CVS Unwilling to Commit to State Laws “Unless Applicable"; State Officials Fear the Worst if Not Signed; 250,000 Louisianans Affected by Contract’s Vague Terms

To date, CVS Caremark has refused to pay sales tax and the 10-cent provider fee on many prescription drugs dispensed in Louisiana”

— Randal Johnson, CEO Louisiana Independent Pharmacy Association

BATON ROUGE, LOUISIANA, UNITED STATES, September 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Joint Legislative Committee on the Budget (JLCB) will meet this Monday, September 28th at 1 p.m. to decide on a controversial new “emergency” contract being pushed by CVS Caremark that would oust competitor MedImpact a year early while leaving more than 4 million Louisianans at risk of losing access to their local independent pharmacies.

The Office of Group Benefits (OGB) and the Department of Administration (DOA), OGB’s overseer, met with legislators, pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs), and pharmacy representatives last week to discuss contract details, a move that created further confusion as CVS representatives dodged attempts to better define the new contract’s vague terms and refused to commit to following existing state laws “unless applicable”.

Hit hard by the COVID-19 pandemic, the state is looking for solutions to bridge budget shortfalls. The annual nearly $500 million proposed CVS contract originally came with the promise of an estimated $130 million in drug spending through the State Employee Health Plan, though the promised savings have since been reduced to $113 million. The $500 million/one-half billion is meant to cover drug costs incurred by state employees and retirees and would normally be paid to local pharmacies responsible for dispensing state employee plan participants. Under the new contract, most of the $500 million would be paid to PBM-owned pharmacies outside of Louisiana and would cause many local independent pharmacies to close.

“The state appears focused on promised savings with little or no regard for how those savings would be achieved and who would be driven out of business as a result,” said Louisiana Independent Pharmacies Association CEO Randal Johnson. “With the proposed emergency contract being one-year and the state already expressing its desire to enter into a regular contract with CVS for up to five years, we are looking at as many as 6 years of added struggle for local pharmacies who seek nothing more than the opportunity to serve patients on a fair and level playing field.”

The state’s current contract is held by MedImpact and is valid for one more year. MedImpact has declared itself willing to negotiate the existing contract to better meet the state’s needs but OGB appears to have declined that offer.

Declaring the situation an “emergency” the OGB and CVS began negotiations that, in the face of questions and push back from concerned stakeholders, is leaving many state officials and stakeholders concerned that CVS will revert to bullying tactics in an attempt to get the contract signed. Once signed, stakeholders fear CVS will create “workarounds” to state laws and the flimsy, difficult-to-enforce provisions in the contract up for decision on Monday.

“To date, CVS Caremark has refused to pay sales tax and the 10-cent provider fee on many prescription drugs dispensed in Louisiana,” Johnson said. “Our local governments depend on those taxes to pay local employees including police and fire departments. The Department of Health uses the provider fees to draw down the federal funds, of which CVS Caremark is already a substantial beneficiary. If CVS can get away with this type of double-dipping – receiving federal funding while avoiding paying its due and fair share of local taxes, what else will they get away under this new, extremely troubling contract?”

CVS Caremark, a division of CVS Health, owner of CVS retail pharmacies, is one of the “Big 3” PBMs. CVS and its fellow PBMs have come under intense scrutiny over the last few years as reports have surfaced of exorbitant spread pricing in state Medicaid programs; keeping drug maker rebates instead of passing the savings on to consumers, and engaging in anti-competitive tactics including self-dealing and steering patients to PBM-owned/affiliated pharmacies. To date, the PBM industry is generating revenues near $500 billion – roughly one-half trillion dollars – which is more than the operating budgets of the U.S. Departments of Education and Housing and Urban Development combined.

Local independent pharmacists and patients will gather at the State Capitol ahead of the hearing to protest the proposed contract in a responsible, socially-distanced manner. For more information about the hearing or the protest, contact Randal Johnson at (225) 921-1704.
