Breakthrough New Unicorn Grow Light further Simplifies The Home Grow Process

Boston, MA, July 13, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- The new Unicorn Series 160W LED Grow Light from Green Goddess Supply is a unique new solution to simplifying the home grow process. The innovative light is specifically intended to be used in a confined space such as a home grow box and is specially tuned to generate high output at a very low wattage.

“We’ve been working on this light for years,” said Vincent Bitetti, Chief Cannabis Officer at Green Goddess Supply who leads the R&D efforts at the company. “It seemed simple and obvious at first, but we eventually realized that there wasn’t an off-the-shelf unit that gave us everything we needed in one package. That one is runs too hot, this one is too large, that one is too small, etc. We realized we were hunting for a unicorn and had to build it ourselves, hence the name.”

The game-changing light features both 112pc SMD and 2pc COB LED lights, dimmable switches and comes with a 3-year warranty. After a full year of research and development, the Unicorn represents the best combination of LED and COB lighting, low energy usage, large footprint, and high PAR output, for growing cannabis in a confined space.

The dimmable switches allow the home grower to dial up or down to maximize the growth of their particular strain, and optimize for heat output within a confined space.

The Unicorn Grow Light includes two rectangular arrays of 48 individual LEDs on the left and right of the lighting board. There are also two COB (Chip On Board) lights, made with thick glass domed covers, that produce modern day, artificial sunlight replacement.

The light also controls IR, UV and UVB which inhibit mold and mildew. Insects are also repelled by these LEDs.

“Lights impact the size of plant growth. Thus, with the Unicorn Grow Light, a home grower can expect larger, more bountiful grows,” noted Mr. Bitetti. He adds, “I have been experimenting with home grow for over three decades and have a whole office full of lighting units. We combined the best of components and technology in the Unicorn Grow Light.”

Eric Robichaud, also of Green Goddess Supply, asserts, “The biggest challenge with growing cannabis is managing lighting which impacts heat and radiation. Most lights do not allow you to lower or increase the radiation. The Unicorn’s switches allow the grower to manage that critical element with precision.”

Although the Unicorn Grow Light can enhance any home grow system, it was designed for use in the Green Goddess Supply trade-marked Armoire, a turnkey solution to home growing that was built to remove the mystery and challenge. The Armoire requires only two minutes of care daily to garner an impressive yield of 3-5 ounces of dried, hand-crafted flower in as little as 60 days. With its furniture-inspired look, child proof lock, ergonomic design, even the most judgmental and disapproving aunt would not suspect that you are growing cannabis in your living room, office or den.

Priced at $299 MSRP, the Unicorn competes with grow lights priced at $399 MSRP that are made by other manufacturers and with the closest feature set.

The Unicorn Grow Light will be included in Armoires moving forward and can replace the lighting system included in earlier models. The Unicorn Grow Light can also be purchased separately for owners of other home grow systems. The light was also designed to daisy-chain multiple units together for grow spaces that require multiple lights to cover a larger footprint.

About Green Goddess Supply:
Green Goddess Supply is a “cultivation to consumption” cannabis lifestyle brand offering a line of high-quality products to grow, store, prep and consume hemp flower and cannabis products. The company sells direct to consumers at MSRP through its website, and also offers wholesale and distributor accounts to brick and mortar storefronts and industry distributors.

Making History: First South African Biotech Ever to Achieve EU Biocidal Registration

Johannesburg, South Africa, July 8, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- At the end of a very long, very expensive five years of testing and following a rigorous, strict application process, Biodx has finally achieved EU registration* for their b bioactive™ (DECONT-X™) disinfectant technology.

“It’s been a daunting road but one where the end was only possible with the help of a dedicated team, whose assistance made this dream a reality. Dr Mark Kelly, Biodx’s Chief Scientist who has been with me every step of the way, scientist Dr Jan Reynhardt, CEO of GrnCAT Holdings, together with Dr Lucia Steenkamp, principle scientist at the CSIR and her team, who offered irreplaceable guidance throughout the research,” says Burt Rodrigues, proud CEO of Biodx.

“We’re also indebted to The Netherlands Organisation (TNO) who carried out the vital test work needed to meet the extremely strict levels of acceptance for this registration, together with Triskelion (Netherlands) who painstakingly prepared the necessary dossiers and followed through with the regulators.

“We also can’t forget the DST (Department of Science and Technology), IDC (Industrial Development Council) and the TIA (Technology Innovation Agency) who initially helped us get this project off the ground.”

What this means to Biodx

“Above all this now gives us access to the European industrial biotech markets – only registered products may be sold in the EU – which with our product being proven and accredited in the EU against SARS-CoV-2 sees us poised for a successful entry, showing that South Africa can hold its own in this field.

“We started this journey in 2016, knowing there was a steep climb in front of us. But it’s much more than just having the finance to throw at it. You need to keep the faith for the dark periods. It was a painstaking process of following the regulatory process, step by step, until you reach the top of that hill. Today it’s truly humbling that this ten year registration conclusion is finally here, opening doors we only dreamed of. This is our first step in trading in the European market and hopefully the first registered dossier of many to come.

*Ctgb Registration Number 16226 N

MIMO and PAR Tokens Listed on Bittrex Global to Enable Euro Stablecoin Trading

Singapore, June 18, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- MIMO, the governance token behind Mimo DeFi, has officially been listed on Bittrex Global. In addition, PAR – Mimo’s stable token which is algorithmically pegged to the Euro — has also been listed. Its appeal to users of Bittrex comes from both owning the platform Mimo is built on as well as utilizing their native currency for those located in Europe.

This marks Mimo’s largest centralised exchange listing to date and enables a wider audience to trade the MIMO & PAR tokens.

PAR is exclusively minted in relation to loans on Mimo DeFi, the beginner-friendly lending platform that MIMO token holders help govern. PAR tokens are therefore collateralized by assets accepted on Mimo DeFi.

Nick Calabro, Growth Manager at Mimo, says that joining the Bittrex lineup is just the first step in a series of bullish updates to come out of the project before the end of the year.

“It’s been an exciting past few months for Mimo and our tokens. With all the news surrounding the dollar, PAR is an easy addition to many crypto portfolios I’m seeing and this listing on Bittrex is just another way to offer this stability to more users,” says Calabro, Growth Manager at Mimo.

“We’re confident that traders on the exchange will value what we’ve built with PAR both as a means to stabilize their portfolio, hedging another nation’s currency, and joining us as we introduce more tools like this as we expand,” adds Nick.

Bittrex is a clear partner to Mimo being one of the most secure platforms and wallet infrastructures, giving users easy access to an array of products and services.

Currently, two trading pairs for PAR and one for MIMO are available:
PAR/BTC + PAR/USDT
MIMO/BTC

Trading opens June 18, 2021.

Items Signed by Einstein, Washington, Lou Gehrig, Many Others will be in University Archives’ June 30th Online Auction

Wilton, CT, USA, June 16, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- A typed letter written and signed by Albert Einstein to President Herbert Hoover in 1929, a one-page letter penned and signed by future President George Washington in 1783, and a charming photograph of baseball legend Lou Gehrig posing with a young boy, signed, with Babe Ruth in the background, are just a few of the rare autographs, manuscripts, books and photos in University Archives’ online-only auction slated for Wednesday, June 30th.

The auction, packed with 331 highly collectible lots, has a start time of 10:30 am Eastern time. The catalog is up for viewing and bidding now, on the revamped University Archives website (www.UniversityArchives.com), as well as the platforms LiveAuctioneers.com, Invaluable.com and Auctionzip.com. Phone and absentee bids will also be accepted. It’s just the fourth auction that will be conducted from University Archives’ new 6,000-square-foot facility in Wilton, Conn.

“Increasing air travel costs and rental car prices prohibit much traveling this summer, so hop on your laptop and check out our June catalog,” said John Reznikoff, the president and founder of University Archives. “You’ll be able to find rare and valuable pieces relating to a diverse cast of historical figures, from Ludwig von Beethoven, Martin Luther King, Jr., and George Taylor to Clara Barton, Bob Dylan and Emperor Hirohito – a treasure trove in many collecting categories.”

Reznikoff pointed out that regulars to University Archives auctions will note that this sale is organized a little differently. “This month, we’ve opted to organize auction lots first by category and then alphabetically,” he said. “This way, you can easily navigate within the section of the auction that most interests you, like superb presidential autographs from Washington to Biden.”

Other categories include science (Einstein, Darwin, Feynman, Hawking, Turing, etc.), sports (Ruth, Gehrig, Mantle, Moe Berg, etc.), literature (Dickens, Harriet Beecher Stowe, Kerouac, Salinger, etc.), world leaders (Catherine II, Emperor Hirohito, Kim Il Sung, Alexander III, etc.), art (Frank Lloyd Wright, Alberto Giacometti, Warhol, etc.), space/aviation (Orville Wright, von Zeppelin, Soviet cosmonauts, Enola Gay, etc.), early American (Rev War, George Taylor, Samuel Adams, etc.), and music (Beethoven, Liszt, Bob Dylan, Leonard Cohen, etc.) and more.

The gorgeously presented autograph letter signed by George Washington and dated May 15, 1783 was addressed to Miss Sidney Lee, the sister of recently deceased Continental Army General Charles Henry Lee. Washington and Lee had bad blood, but despite this, Washington proved himself a courteous and attentive correspondent, helping Miss Lee obtain a copy of Lee’s will so that she could inherit his estate. The letter carries a pre-sale estimate of $18,000-$20,000.

Albert Einstein’s one-page autograph letter was written in German to President Herbert Hoover after receiving Hoover’s congratulatory 50th birthday message in 1929 (est. $50,000-$55,000). Einstein humbly wrote, “I know I am just one of the many who are so happy to use their energy in the service of the understanding of the Sciences…I alone am but a grain-of-dust in the development of the human spirit.” Just one other letter from Einstein to a US President is known.

The circa 1933 photo of Lou Gehrig, shown squatting down to pose with a young boy identified on verso as William Grice Bogg, black and white, taken at an unknown location, is signed by the Yankee great and has an estimate of $3,000-$4,000. Babe Ruth can be seen throwing a ball in the background. Babe Ruth, in fact, also posed with the boy a couple of years later, in a similar pose, around 1935, squatting down. That photo, signed by Ruth, is also up for bid (est. $5,000-$6,000).

Alan Turing, the British mathematician who cracked the Nazi “Enigma” machine during World War II, signed a copy of The Theory of Groups of Finite Order, which he gifted to his Cambridge University mentor (est. $20,000-$24,000).

John Rush Retires From Pressed4Time After 30 Years

Denver, CO and Naples, FL, June 12, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Pressed4Time’s John Rush, a Denver, Colorado resident, recently sold his dry cleaning route to Brad Ambridge, owner of Martinizing Dry Cleaning of Denver. This marked the end of a 30-plus year career with Pressed4Time for this lifelong entrepreneur. Ambridge officially took over the route on May 1.

“I’ve had quite a run with Pressed4Time. I’ve met and worked with some wonderful people who will remain friends for the rest of my life,” said Rush, who began his Pressed4Time route in 1991. “I’m looking forward to the next chapter, which hopefully involves some travel and maybe even a little work to stay active.”

Rush began his entrepreneurial career in the supermarket business, working in his family’s store. After a stint in the Air Force, which included being stationed in Spain, Rush traveled to Australia to open a business, Oliver’s Table in Perth. He returned to the US five years late to open another business, The Water Store in Denver, Colorado. During that time, he was a distributor for Crystal Geyser spring water from Calistoga, California.

“I enjoyed both businesses but there was just something missing. That’s when I did one of those aptitude tests with Carol Green of the Franchise Services Association. My test revealed that I was an outdoor person,” said Rush. “That’s when I went on my search for an outdoor franchise opportunity and fortunately found Pressed4Time. The rest is history.”

Over his 30-year career, he’s logged literally hundreds of thousands of miles picking up and dropping off clothing in the greater Denver area. During that time, he’s watched his children Ben (spouse Jackie) and Monica (spouse Mark) grow into adults. He’s now the proud grandfather of three—Brooklyn, Evan and Asher.

“I love people and that’s what made having a business like this perfect for me,” said Rush, 77. “I’m so grateful to have had this opportunity and happy for the assistance from Clean Franchise Brands to connect me with Brad. I know my route is in capable hands.”

Clean Franchise Brands recently acquired Martinizing Dry Cleaning, 1-800-DryClean, Pressed4time, Dry Cleaning Station and Bizziebox. Lapels and Greybull have now merged these leading dry cleaning companies into Clean Franchise Brands, LLC (“Clean Franchise Brands”), now the largest dry cleaning company in the world, with 500+ stores in 40 states and nine countries.

“This is a great example of how this acquisition creates tremendous synergies among all of our existing and new franchisees across the country,” said Kevin Dubois, CEO and President of Clean Franchise Brands. “We were able to connect John’s Pressed4Time route with a Martinizing Dry Cleaning dry cleaning plant and store rather easily. This provides an additional opportunity for Brad and a seamless transition for customers on John’s route.”

Clean Franchise Brands provides multiple offerings for new and existing franchise owners, including: a plant with retail store, a satellite store, pickup and delivery, and the newly created Lapels Laundromat. Clean Franchise Brands also offers a conversion program to independent dry cleaning business owners that would like to receive international marketing and technology assistance while owners focus on running their businesses.

“Over the years, we’ve established Lapels as a unique franchise offering with a focus on environmentally friendly, non-toxic cleaning practices, as well as stellar customer service. That package has earned us a place in the Franchise 500 year in and year out,” said Dubois. “With this acquisition, we can provide a wide range of offerings to prospects all over the world. We’re excited about the future of all our new brands. The sky is truly the limit.”
