Airborne Wireless Network (ABWN)

Airborne Wireless Network’s corporate mission is to be a high-speed broadband internet pipeline to improve coverage connectivity now lacking. The Company’s intention is  to create a high-speed broadband airborne wireless network through linking commercial aircraft in flight. Each aircraft participating in the network will act as an airborne repeater or router, sending and receiving broadband signals from one aircraft to the next. This will create a digital superhighway in the sky. Listed on the OTC Markets’ OTCQB,   Airborne Wireless Network is based in Simi Valley, California.

In regards to its Wholesale Carrier Network, Airborne Wireless Network’s plan is to use commercial aircraft as “mini-satellites”. The Company’s main target customer-base will be global data and communications service providers. Its system is to operate in a safe and controlled environment, normally  between 20,000 and 40,000 feet (6,000-12,000 m). 

The Company is developing a fully meshed network. In a fully meshed network, signals come in from many directions. The system will route signals around any obstructions. In essence, it is a virtual airborne Worldwide Web. Because it is a meshed network, it is similar to a web where all nodes are connected via numerous links.

Airborne Wireless Network does not intend to provide retail customer coverage to end users. It will act as a wholesale carrier with target customers. It believes that its network, upon development, should provide low cost, high-speed connectivity to rural areas, island nations, ships at sea, oil platforms, plus connectivity to commercial and private aircraft in flight.

The Company has completed its acquisition of Patent Number US 6,285,878 B1 and the Trademark "Infinitus Super Highway". These acquired assets serve as a blueprint and road map for it to develop its "Airborne Wireless Network”.

This past December,  Airborne Wireless Network announced that on December 14, 2017 it entered into a Support Agreement with GE Aviation, one of the GE (GE) Business Units. The Company anticipates that this relationship should considerably speed up the development of its proprietary Hybrid Radio and Free-Optics Communications System to be demonstrated this year.

In January, Airborne Wireless Network announced that on December 26, 2017, it entered into a service agreement with iNTELLICOM Technologies, Inc. to support the development and advancement of its Infinitus Super Highway™.

Mr. Michael Warren, Airborne Wireless Network’s Chief Executive Officer, said, "Based upon the services provided by iNTELLICOM for the past ten months, we have agreed to enter into a long-term formal agreement with iNTELLICOM and believe this relationship will enhance our engineering team.  We look forward to working with iNTELLICOM and its team to accelerate the development and implementation of our Infinitus Super Highway™."

Furthermore, in January, Airborne Wireless Network announced the appointment of four new independent members to its Board of Directors. This brings total Board membership to six.

Bonterra Resources, Inc. is a gold exploration company headquartered in Vancouver, British Columbia. Currently, Bonterra is moving ahead with deposit extension and resource expansion in and around its new high-grade Gladiator Gold Deposit. The Company’s focus is to add ounces to the world class Abitibi Gold Belt in Quebec and Ontario.

The Company is advancing to the completion of an updated NI 43-101 (National Instrument 43-101) Mineral Resource Estimate in the second half of this year. Bonterra Resources’ 10,541-hectare Gladiator Gold Project is situated in the Urban-Barry Greenstone Belt within the Abitibi Subprovince.

The Gladiator Deposit remains open in all directions with drilled dimensions presently outlined to a depth of 1,000 meters with a strike length of 1,200 meters. A minimum of six distinct subparallel zones or mineralized horizons have been identified.

Bonterra also has its Larder Lake Gold Project. It is 2,165-hectares. Larder is located in eastern Ontario, in McVittie and McGarry Townships, near the town of Virginiatown.

Mr. Peter A. Ball, VP Operations, said, "As expected, preliminary metallurgical test results confirmed excellent gold recoveries.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD).

The Green Organic Dutchman Holdings Ltd. (TSX:TGOD) has been requested by the Investment Industry Regulatory Organization of Canada (IIROC) to comment on the recent increase in the trading volume and price of the Company's common shares on the TSX Exchange.

The Green Organic Dutchman (TSX: TGOD), whose principal location is in Hamilton, Ontario, produces farm grown, organic, pesticide-free medical cannabis in small batches using all natural, organic craft growing principles. TGOD is licensed under the Access to Cannabis for Medical Purposes Regulations (ACMPR) to cultivate medical cannabis. The company carries out its principal activities producing cannabis pursuant to the provisions of the ACMPR and the Controlled Drugs and Substances Act (Canada).

Committed to becoming the global leader in delivering organic cannabis solutions that enhance people’s lives, TGOD consistently adheres to the highest levels of excellence. Its world-class management team includes a proven group of leaders with outstanding executive and operational experience specific to consumer packaged goods, consumer products, cannabis and finance industries.

TGOD is positioned as one of the highest quality and most cost efficient cannabis producers in Canada by leveraging innovative technology and low-cost power solutions. It holds one of the largest land packages under a single ACMPR license in Canada, providing future cannabis Agri-park style development and opportunities for joint ventures, licensing and distribution partners. Its industry leading alliance partners include Eaton, Ledcor Group and Hamilton Utilities Corp.

Eaton is the second largest power management company in the world and promises to supply innovative and cost effective power solutions to meet TGOD’s growing demands. Construction management is supplied by Ledcor, Canada’s second largest multidisciplinary construction company and a pioneer in the Green Building Industry. An alliance with Hamilton Utilities Corp allows TGOD to reduce its power costs from $0.13 per kWh to less than $0.05 per kWh. Greenhouse design is provided by Larssen Greenhouse, whose 25-plus years of experience in building some of the most modern and sophisticated greenhouses in the industry will provide TGOD with state of the art, climate-controlled hybrid greenhouse solutions.

Canada is quickly becoming a hub for cannabis investors with over $1.3 billion raised by Canadian companies to date. There are 58 licensed producers to service a population of 36 million and only two organic producers. TGOD, which holds licenses in Ontario and Quebec, is strategically located in both provinces that together claim 22 million Canadians as residents. Another estimated 57 million people live next door in six U.S. bordering states.

The Canadian cannabis market currently has a massive supply demand gap, which makes TGOD’s expansion plans even more important to investors. These plans include a combined build-out capacity of 970,000 square feet, allowing TGOD to produce 116,000 kg annually of organic cannabis. Upon completion, Phase One in Hamilton, Ontario, which is fully funded, will provide 150,000 square feet of growing capacity capable of producing up to 14,000 kg of cannabis or $112 million in revenue at $8 a gram.

The company’s Quebec expansion will be constructed on a recently secured 75-acre property near Montreal. This new property has a planned expansion of 820,000 square feet capable of producing 102,000 kg of organic cannabis. The first phase of this expansion is underway and construction is expected to be completed by the end of 2018. Quebec’s first phase will consist of 220,000 square feet capable of producing 22,000 kg of cannabis. Two additional expansion phases will add 250,000 square feet (26,000 kg of cannabis) and 350,000 square feet (54,000 kg of cannabis). Power costs remain exceptionally low for both facilities with access to all other needed utilities available and close by.

TGOD also plans to gain a share of the burgeoning cannabis oils market which by Q1 2017 accounted for 49 percent of all cannabis sold in Canada under the ACMPR, up from only 27% in Q2 2016. TGOD has ordered a purpose-built extraction laboratory with an estimated commission in Q4 of 2017. This is a commercial-scale CO2 extraction unit capable of processing up to 12,000 kg of raw material per year and producing approximately $170 million worth of organic cannabis oils. Raw cannabis oil provides a significant downstream manufacturing opportunity into several potential recreational market verticals including edibles, beverages, topicals and concentrates.

Data from the Canadian ACMPR Market Trends report indicates a rising number of consumers will continue to seek out healthier, less conspicuous ways to consume cannabis, ensuring sales of organic cannabis oil products remain brisk. Organic cannabis products demand a significant premium compared to non-organic products and the demand keeps growing.

Plans to take the company public are underway with an initial public offering (IPO) slated for January 2018. In November, the company raised $13 million in equity financing and in March closed a $27 million non-brokered private placement. Another $20 million is currently being raised before the IPO in January, which will be utilized for expansion plans.

TGOD is uniquely positioned between the medical and recreational cannabis industry since Canada is scheduled to legalize cannabis for all adults in mid-2018. As of August 2017, TGOD has 2,400 shareholders. Established in 2012, TGOD’s motto, “Making Life Better,” can be seen in its strategic partnerships, top quality management team, and dedication to organic farming and principles.

Next-generation energy and technology company Zenergy Brands (OTCQB: ZNGY) is combatting the culture of waste in the energy industry by offering an environmentally friendly alternative. To view the full article, visit: http://nnw.fm/y7VRz. Also today, NetworkNewsWire released a report on the company detailing how ZNGY is disrupting the energy industry by focusing on its Zero Cost Program and applying smart energy controls to reduce energy waste by utilities and achieve lower upfront costs. Its strategy is to eliminate the outdated legacy business model calling for utilities to increase output that results in wasteful energy. Its program can save 20-60 percent in utility consumption for its commercial, industrial and municipal customers (http://nnw.fm/Ppi3x).

Zenergy Brands, Inc. (ZNGY) is the nation’s leading next-generation energy and technology company operating in the emerging smart energy, conservation, and utility industries. Headquartered in Texas, Zenergy provides an entire suite of conservation-based products and services that enable clients to achieve sustainability goals, reduce carbon emissions and improve their bottom line. The company’s cutting-edge Zero Cost Program™ reduces utility expenses by 20 percent to 60 percent by offering energy conservation, smart controls, and efficiency-based products and services to residential, commercial, industrial and municipal end-use customers.

The Zero Cost Program™ is a financing mechanism that allows customers to reduce water, natural gas and electricity expenses by implementing proven conservation technologies at no out-of-pocket cost. The Zero Cost Program™ enriches businesses by immediately reducing energy consumption through the use of smart controls, building automation, LED lighting solutions, refrigeration optimization, efficient water systems, EC motor controls, demand-side management and load factor correction.

A unique Managed Energy Services Agreement (“MESA”) allows a portion of these utility savings to be retained by Zenergy’s partner financing the upgraded, retrofit equipment and installation costs until a specified repayment period ends. After that, clients reap all the financial rewards of the technologies implemented, which Zenergy estimates should range between 25 percent and 45 percent of total utility costs.

Residential customers seeking cost-effective energy savings can also choose from a suite of “Smart Home” products including home automation, security monitoring, and energy conservation services that can be controlled 24/7 from the comfort and convenience of their smartphones or internet-connected smart devices. Zenergy’s residential program offers partnership opportunities for homebuilders and residential, multi-family real estate developers to provide smart home technologies to high-end customers.

Zenergy Brands’ acquisition of Enertrade Electric LLC, a fully operating, licensed Texas-based Retail Electric Provider (REP), further increases the company’s value proposition. Zenergy CEO Alex Rodriguez said this new subsidiary adds an essential complementary service to the company’s suite of smart energy products and services.

“Since our founding, our vision has been to converge smart controls (home and building automation) with energy conservation and retail energy to deliver the comprehensive smart energy service to customers,” Rodriguez said.

On a global scale, residential and commercial buildings account for nearly 45 percent of the world’s total energy consumption. Improving the energy efficiency of these homes and buildings is often a more affordable way to reduce harmful gas emissions while minimizing the need for new energy production. According to Navigant Research, global revenue for energy-efficient commercial building retrofits alone is expected to grow from $71.4 billion in 2016 to $100.8 billion in 2025. At the same time, the energy-efficient devices market is expected to reach a market size of $908 billion by 2022. Increasing demands for reduction in energy consumption and greenhouse gas emissions along with concerns over climate change are contributing factors driving the market’s overall growth.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSXV: DNAX)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX).

As the legal cannabis market continues to develop, concerns about ensuring transparency and quality control for the growing number of medicinal and recreational drug products sold to consumers continue to drive a necessary breed of entrepreneurship required to legitimize the industry. BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX) has emerged as an innovative leader in the quality control arena, releasing its proprietary supply chain management platform as a secure means of providing confidence in the inventory pipeline while safeguarding the interests of licensed growers.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (TSX.V: DNAX), a full-service software company headquartered in Vancouver, BC, Canada, has developed the first integrated blockchain platform that registers and tracks cannabis intellectual property (“IP”) from genome to sale. It is proprietary, immutable and cryptographically secure, thereby establishing a single source of truth for cannabis strains and their ownership.

With Canada set to legalize marijuana use for recreational purposes, and other jurisdictions following suit around the world, new challenges will emerge regarding the ability to provide a safe and legal inventory of a product that up until now was largely only available on the black market. Cannabis will be heavily tested and regulated by numerous regulatory bodies in Canada. The cannabis industry faces unique challenges that BLOCKStrain specifically helps it address, including:

  • Mandatory Testing: Through BLOCKStrain’s platform and lab-testing partners, the process is more efficient and streamlined, cutting the administrative burden in half and getting products to market faster;
  • DNA Based Product Validation: The underlying blockchain technology creates a genetic fingerprint that identifies and validates the product electronically so any participant on the platform, including consumers, can view and track what’s happening with that product from genome to sale;
  • Intellectual Property: Third, and perhaps most importantly, the BLOCKStrain platform protects the intellectual property of growers and breeders. This is important for the industry’s growth as products evolve and develop. If a craft grower, for example, creates a popular strain with unique characteristics, it will be able to protect its intellectual property by simply registering the strain’s genome with BLOCKStrain and locking that data into the blockchain. It will reside there forever and will be readily accessible in the event of future disputes, bringing a level of trust to the industry and ensuring licensing fees are paid to all players in the market.

VERIFICATION = CERTIFICATION

BLOCKStrain’s genetics verification process is authentic and incredibly effective. User groups register by creating an account with BLOCKStrain, which starts the process. Organizations and independent growers submit seeds, flower and post-extraction product for testing to a registered and approved testing facility, which then submits test results to BLOCKStrain. Pre-existing data of genetic cannabis strains can also be submitted via BLOCKStrain verification administrators, with those results being added to the user group’s blockchain account. Submissions are entered into BLOCKStrain, and the transaction is completed and recorded.

Each time an item is tested and verified by the network, a Registration Affidavit is auto-generated and given a unique “BLOCKStrain Address” along with a traceable QR Code. Producers, patients and consumers are able to not only verify the test but can also rate the product, write reviews and share opinions. This detail is stored within BLOCKStrain and, just like the test results, cannot be tampered with or modified. Verification and certification are earned by all parties for their participation.

SAFE CONSUMER SUPPLY

BLOCKStrain demystifies the seed-to-sale process for all relevant stakeholders including producers, distributors, shippers, government agencies and consumers by creating a repository of cannabis genomes on an immutable, shared ledger. Thousands of cannabis strains exist and cultivators are breeding new strains all the time. The proliferation of cannabis strains can prove problematic for consumers since there are more than 500 known chemical compounds in a single plant. Furthermore, since several dozens of these compounds have been identified as pharmacologically active, it becomes more and more difficult for consumers to know what they are purchasing.

It is for this reason that being able to quantify the genetics, potency and equivalencies among cannabis products is crucial to the future of legalized cannabis. The difference is not so much in the name or brand attached to the cannabis, but the DNA of the plant itself. BLOCKStrain ensures product integrity, safety, regulatory compliance, product licensing and authenticity – all vital elements for the emerging cannabis industry.  This technology also bolsters the process of meeting government regulatory standards by providing real-time visibility of industry operations to agencies assigned to enforce and regulate cannabis activity.

INTELLECTUAL PROPERTY RIGHTS

BLOCKStrain allows for the defense of intellectual property rights for the grower with an authentic, verifiable chain of evidence embedded in the blockchain itself. Proof of ownership for a specific strain of cannabis is paramount in a multibillion dollar industry. Real life ownership disputes have already begun in the industry with legal battles underway. Unfortunately, the framework for resolving these disputes has yet to be defined and they are not likely to be resolved anytime soon.

Consumers and regulators alike want to know whether a cannabis product grown and sold at a local dispensary is safe and meets quality control standards. BLOCKStrain enhances trust of origin from genome-to-sale as cannabis flows through the supply chain, verifying critical steps in the process such as who is growing the plant, which seed is planted and where did it come from, whether pesticides were used, how much was grown, which tests are used to establish quality and potency, where the product is transported and how, and whether possession limits are meeting regulatory standards.

In summary, BLOCKStrain has developed the most comprehensive, secure and community-driven cannabis genetics archival platform for cannabis breeders and growers, large and small, to protect and release their varieties into the public domain, all while compensating and rewarding them for their contributions.

BLOCKStrain Technology Corp. (DNAX), closed the day's trading session at $0.68, off by 9.33%, on 167,750 volume. The stock's 52-week low/high is $0.10/$1.20.

It is optimally designed for both urban environments and high-speed scenarios to provide protection for the most vulnerable road users. On March 28, 2018, Foresight announced that it had completed a successful feasibility study of its Eye-Net™ accident prevention solution involving 120 users of Android and iOS cell phones located across Israel.

In 2017, Foresight sought more opportunities within the international market. The Company signed pilot agreements with three leading car manufacturers in China and completed pilot projects meeting all pre-defined requirements and criteria. In addition, FRSX completed a pilot project with Uniti Sweden.

Studies by the Insurance Institute for Highway Safety continue to emphasize the dramatic reduction in accidents and injury-related crashes reported when vehicles are equipped with collision avoidance systems. A recent study by the Institute states that the rate of single-vehicle, sideswipe and head-on crashes was 11 percent lower in vehicles with the warning systems. More importantly, the study shows collision avoidance technology cut the rates of injury crashes of the same type by 21 percent.

Foresight Autonomous Holdings, Inc. also holds a 32 percent interest in RailVision, a company that develops advanced systems for railway safety and maintenance. RailVision has successfully completed 13 tests in Israel, Germany, Italy and Switzerland in addition to a real-time system test with a European railway operator.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF)

The QualityStocks Daily Newsletter would like to spotlight First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF).

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX-V: FCC; ASX: FCC; OTCQX: FTSSF) is pleased to announce the completion of the previously announced acquisition of US Cobalt Inc. by way of plan of arrangement. US Cobalt shareholders will receive 1.5 common shares of First Cobalt for each US Cobalt share held and US Cobalt has become a wholly-owned subsidiary of First Cobalt.

First Cobalt Corp. (TSX.V: FCC) (OTCQX: FTSSF), with headquarters in Canada, is the largest land owner in the Cobalt Camp in Ontario with control of over 10,000 hectares (nearly 25,000 acres) of prospective land and 50 historic cobalt/silver mines. The company’s assets include a mill and the only permitted cobalt extraction refinery in North America capable of producing battery material, providing an integrated solution for cobalt projects. First Cobalt began drilling in the historic Cobalt Camp in 2017 and seeks to build shareholder value through new discovery and growth opportunities.

First Cobalt’s 2018 $C7 million drilling program, which includes testing different styles of mineralized areas throughout the Cobalt Camp in more than 10 past-producing mines known to contain cobalt, is a significant expansion over its 2017 exploration activities. The company received positive test drill results from the Bellellen mine location, with early results confirming the presence of high-grade cobalt and nickel, prompting First Cobalt to increase its drilling program at that site. A prospecting sampling program of existing muckpiles around the camp’s historic mines, trenches, pits and surrounding bedrock could provide an early production scenario.

First Cobalt Corp. is moving quickly to leverage its potential against an economic background that estimates global consumption for refined cobalt is set to grow at an average rate of approximately 5 percent per annum for the next 10 years. The electric vehicle market, in particular, is driving this sector since more than 50 percent of the world’s current production of cobalt is used in the manufacture of rechargeable lithium-ion batteries. The global lithium-ion battery market, as estimated by Zion Market Research, indicates the value at around USD $31 billion in 2016 and is expected to generate revenue of nearly USD $68 billion by end of 2022, growing at a compound annual growth rate of slightly above 17 percent.

First Cobalt is embracing innovation in the mining sector, utilizing a digital compilation of 100-plus years of mining and geological data spanning the historically prolific Cobalt Mining Camp’s lifespan. First Cobalt’s management team is also assessing the ability of artificial intelligence to accelerate the discovery cycle. As a member of the Mineral Exploration Research Centre (MERC) and Metal Earth Project, First Cobalt conducts regional geophysical surveys for geological interpretation of structures controlling cobalt-silver mineralization.

The company’s clear pathway to production and cash flow generation includes being one of only four fully permitted cobalt extraction refineries in Canada with significant material and processing infrastructure on site. With the price of cobalt increasing significantly and its importance in the growing battery market underpinning a strong long-term demand forecast, First Cobalt Corp. and its mining interests are primed for success.

First Cobalt Corp. President and CEO Trent Mell, a mining executive and capital markets professional with extensive international transactional experience, is joined by a team of reputable and seasoned deal-makers, mine builders and mine operators with decades of global experience in exploration, business development, geoscience, engineering and finance.

First Cobalt Corp. (FTSSF), closed the day's trading session at $0.5387, up 1.64%, on 110,546 volume with 60 trades. The average volume for the last 60 days is 117,595 and the stock's 52-week low/high is $0.375/$1.3041.

Marijuana Company of America Inc. (MCOA) (the “Company”) are pioneers in the cannabis industry going back to 2009 when Don Steinberg, MCOA’s CEO, founded the first marijuana company ever to trade on a U.S. stock market, Medical Marijuana Inc. Since then, Don and his partner, Charlie Larsen, have formed Global Hemp Group and Marijuana Company of America. They have experienced the shift of legislation first hand, not only for the legalization of marijuana but also the emerging hemp-based CBD products.

The CBD market is growing exponentially and consequently the founders of MCOA have constructed their business model around the development of industrial hemp-based CBD products. The industrial hemp plant can be used to produce products that are carbon neutral or even carbon negative. It is one of the longest, strongest natural fibers on earth, used as a building material that is free of mold, pesticide-resistant, and fire proof. Hemp has also been described as a “super food,” which provides additional business opportunities. No part of the plant is left unused and the Company’s overall strategy is to take advantage of every profit center from farm to the multiple valuable finished products.

The cannabis and hemp industries are experiencing unprecedented growth that is expected to continue for many years as these industries are now accepted globally and continue to mature and expand. North American consumers spent $6.7 billion on legal cannabis products in 2016, up 34% from 2015’s $5 billion. This trend is widely expected to explode at a 27% compounded annual growth rate to reach $22.6 billion by 2021, according to ArcView Market Research.

The company offers investors the opportunity to be on the forefront of cannabis and hemp innovation through cultivation, processing in the legal cannabis and industrial hemp sectors. The Company’s business model includes producing a diverse portfolio of synergistic business segments that provide value to its shareholders. Its vertically integrated business model and distribution platforms are positioned to capture market share by developing recognizable and valuable brands.

Under the MCOA umbrella, wholly owned subsidiary hempSMART™, Inc. is committed to bringing high quality CBD-based products to the market through its affiliate marketing program.
