BTI Completes Harbour BioMed Lab Relocation

Newton, MA, Natick, MA and Hanover, MA, November 5, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Brookline Transportation, Inc. (BTI), a Mayflower Van Lines agent specializing in commercial, laboratory and residential moves, recently completed a lab relocation for Harbour Biomed. The Metrowest-based company moved its lab from LabShares in Newton, Massachusetts to ABI Labs at 27 Strathmore Road in Natick, Massachusetts. The move took place at the end of June 2021.

Harbour BioMed is a global, clinical stage biopharmaceutical company committed to the discovery, development and commercialization of novel antibody therapeutics in the areas of oncology and immunological diseases to address unmet patient’s needs. In addition to the office items, the move required the transportation of specimens from the freezers at LabShares to the new location at ABI Labs.

“Harbour BioMed owned a few of their refrigeration units, some of the other units were leases and wouldn’t be making the move,” said Margaret Lwanga O’Shea, BTI project manager for the Harbour BioMed relocation. “The contents and specimens from the leased units required our plug-in service.”

Along with the plug-in generator truck, BTI utilized portable dry ice shippers/coolers systems packed with dry ice to safely move Harbour BioMed’s specimens. Among those specimens included the lab’s proprietary Harbour Mice® , which generate fully human monoclonal antibodies in the classical two heavy and two light chain (H2L2) format, as well as heavy chain only (HCAb) format.

“The distance between Newton, Massachusetts and Natick, Massachusetts is a little more than 11 miles. Yet when dealing with delicate specimens that represent a company’s work, there’s no such things as a short distance,” said George Rohlfing, president of BTI. “Thanks to a thorough survey of both locations and several months of planning, we were able to conduct the move smoothly and efficiently with no glitches.”

The entire lab relocation was conducted in just two days, June 28-29.

BTI offers a wide range of moving services for wide variety of laboratories. Specialties include: research; life science; food service; water testing; coating; butterfly lab; ocean research labs; planetary sciences; virology labs; hearing labs; shock compression lab; coatings/wet and dry labs; fermentation; labs; magnet labs; chemical labs; pharmaceutical labs; and petroleum R&D labs.

In addition to the planning and actual move, BTI lab relocation services include coordination with facilities and IT staff at both origin and destination to ensure a smooth transition for the lab to reopen ASAP at the new location. Additionally, BTI’s lab relocation division can offer storage options on both ends of a move should the facility need time to assimilate the new lab into the building.

Celestial Leads The Future of Cross-Chain Gaming Metaverse

Helsinki, Finland, October 29, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Coming up as a first-mover on the adoption of blockchain gaming metaverse on the OEC public chain (formerly known as OKExChain) is Celestial, a cross-chain gaming metaverse trending in the crypto airwaves. Deploying the concept of galactic warfare, Celestial combines the concept of GameFi, SocialFi, and NFTSwap to bring one of the finest innovations to the gaming metaverse.

Celestial has grown in popularity in the blockchain gaming ecosystem since its inception. Racking up some impressive figures, Celestial initiated a public BETA test on September 14 that contributed to over 70% of OEC public chain trading activity, resulting in high congestion of the OKexchain, with daily transactions topping 1 million at the time.

After a series of rigorous testing, the official version of the Celestial gaming platform went live on September 29th. Commenting on the impressive launch, the Celestial team reiterated their commitment to the long-term sustainability of the Celestial project:

“We are excited about the launch of our gaming platform. Being the brainchild of a multi-month period of development, innovation, and rigorous backend testing, this marks the beginning of an important phase in the Celestial roadmap just before our token generation events and subsequent listing on exchanges. We are excited about what the future holds for the blockchain gaming metaverse and we are happy to be leading this adoption.”

The Celestial platform is built to enable game players to create federations in the Celestial world, explore planets and galaxy clusters, and mine rich minerals and different resources as part of a meta-universe star-wars style game using GameFi + SocialFi + NFTSwap.

Leading up to TGE: $CELT token has recorded eye-popping success
While the impressive launch of the Celestial gaming metaverse comes as no surprise, seeing that blockchain gaming adoption has maintained an upward trajectory, the token generation event (TGE) also recorded impressive numbers. The token price soared to the top gainers category after listing on OKEx, a leading Asia-based crypto exchange.

CELT is the native token that powers the Celestial metaverse economy and is primarily used to settle all transactions in the Celestial metaverse. Since debuting on OKEx, CELT has amassed massive success for token holders after rising to the top-performing assets on the OEC public chain just after 15 days of trading activities.

Celestial dual token rotation system reduces selling pressure on CELTs
Celestial adopts a unique token system that allows a dual token rotation mechanism. In addition to $CELT, there is a sub token known as Crystals which is engineered to reduce the selling pressure on CELTs and benefit token holders in the long run.

Through an in-house mechanism known as Pledge Mining, Celestial incorporates some DeFi futures into its ecosystem to reward players.

Gamers may utilize this function to pledge mainstream currency like fiat for energy stones (CELT), which can be used to open mystery chests or traded for mainstream currency in CherrySwap. Celestial has introduced an intriguing feature to the DeFi pledge mining — the energy stone mining accelerator, xCELT, which can generate up to three times the earnings of CELT.

To obtain xCELT, users simply need to mortgage CELT. As the total mining power increases, more xCELT will be needed to keep the process running, which ultimately cushions selling pressure. Currently, the project seems to be pivoting towards decentralized finance while developing its GameFi and SocialFi features. According to Celestial:

“We think that a healthy self-rotating economic system is essential for every project; once economic development has reached its ideal state, we will enhance SocialFi and GameFi features, and the game launch will be completed.”

The warring gaming platform seeks to create a socially permeable interplanetary exploration chain game, with player community culture as the pioneer with gaming and decentralized finance as the support. As the blockchain gaming ecosystem expands, Celestial is positioning itself to lead the adoption of the cross-chain warring metaverse.

MRHB DeFi Partners Ethereum L2 Scaling Chain zkSync to Power Halal DeFi Platform

Dubai, UAE, October 28, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- MRHB DeFi the world’s first inclusive and ethical DeFi platform is integrating the Ethereum scaling solution zkSync, developed by software experts Matter Labs.

The move will mean that the MRHB DeFi ecosystem will benefit from the low transaction fees zkSync enables, while developers will be able to utilize zkSync technology on the platform’s architecture to improve efficiency, speed, scalability, security and privacy.

ZK RollUp solves Ethereum Scalability with Zero Security Compromises
zkSync is an innovative technology that is already live on the Ethereum mainnet. It allows for extremely low transaction fees, relies on a trustless protocol, and keeps funds cryptographically secure. Transactions use zero-knowledge proofs and on-chain data availability to keep users’ funds safe, with computation and storage being performed off-chain.

“At Marhaba, we strongly believe zkSync will lead the way as a ZK-RollUp solution for Ethereum,” said Deniz Dalkilic, CTO of MRHB DeFi. “Given its ability of 100% Solidity compatibility, fast finality with low fees while having the ability to secure unlimited amounts of TVL($), it makes it the perfect L2 solution for DeFi.”

Built on ZK Rollup architecture, zkSync ensures that it strictly inherits the security guarantees of the underlying L1. Unlike sidechains, Rollup validator(s) can never be corrupted. Smart-contract friendly, exchange friendly, the technology allows for contract-interoperability and atomic swaps on different exchange protocols and even includes native support for NFTs.

MRHB CTO Dalkilic highlighted that Vitalik Buterin has declared that “in the medium to long term, ZK rollups will win out in all use cases as ZK-SNARK technology improves.”

The technology is already in use by a wide range of leading blockchain projects, including Curve, Argent, and Balancer, and was supported in its ecosystem funding round by leading names in the blockchain space, including Binance, Huobi, Coinbase and many more.

An Ethical and Inclusive DeFi Vision
MRHB DeFi was founded with a vision of providing greater access to the growing opportunities and utilities of the cryptoverse for excluded and cautious communities, and has a particular focus on delivering faith-based DeFi services which adhere to the ethical investment and financing principles rooted in Islamic Finance, many of which align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Such business practices include those that avoid interest, usury, social exploitation and other acts deemed unethical as well as support sustainability, asset/utility backed financing, transparency and equitable risk/reward sharing.

With the Islamic Finance industry sized at around USD 3 trillion of assets, bringing even a small portion of Shariah-sensitive liquidity into DeFi will represent a major boost to the total value of the DeFi sector worldwide.

MRHB DeFi has also received strategic investments from Blockchain Australia, Mozaic, Contango Digital Assets, NewTribe Capital, Sheesha Finance, Acreditus Partners and EMGS Group.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB (pronounced ‘Marhaba’) DeFi is a decentralised finance platform built to bring ethics to the DeFi space with an approach that supports the inclusion of faith-based and other excluded communities in addition to existing crypto-natives so that everyone can benefit from the full empowerment potential of DeFi to help build a true peer-to-peer financial and economic value system.

Based on the tenets of blockchain such as trust, transparency, and security, MRHB DeFi has encapsulated universally applicable principles of Islamic Finance into those tenets of blockchain to render a suite of offerings that are also ESG compliant.

The project is backed by a diverse and strong team with backgrounds spanning crypto, technology, faith-compliant investing, finance and seasoned institutional veterans of industry. The public sale offering will be in December. Register your interest and read more about MRHB DeFi’s Shariah Concept Paper, Lite and White Paper here: https://marhabadefi.com/info-centre.php

BTI Completes Henkel Corporation Lab Relocation

Cambridge, MA, Madison Heights, MI, Seabrook, NH and Hanover, MA, Oct 22, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Brookline Transportation, Inc. (BTI), a Mayflower Van Lines agent specializing in commercial, laboratory and residential moves, recently completed two lab relocations for Cambridge, Massachusetts-based location of Henkel Adhesive Technologies. BTI moved part of the lab contents to a Henkel location in Madison Heights, Michigan and the remainder to another Henkel lab in Seabrook, New Hampshire.

Henkel Adhesive Technologies is an international company based in Dusseldorf, Germany. The company makes the sealant found in most aluminum cans holding carbonated and non-carbonated beverages.

“We take it for granted when we open up a can of soda or some other drink that it will be fresh. We don’t realize what goes into keeping drinks fresh, particularly all the testing, and creating that refreshing sound when we crack open a beverage,” said George Rohlfing, president of BTI. “Part of what was so eye-opening on this move was the heavy machinery Henkel uses to make and test the sealant.”

The first move to Michigan involved the largest machine, which weighed in at 5,000 pounds. Transporting it from the second floor to the truck would require disassembly into smaller sections so it would be light enough to take the elevator. Once to the loading dock, it would need to be re-assembled and then hoisted onto a pallet and packed onto the 53-foot, 18-wheeler making the drive to Michigan.

The second phase of the relocation took place July 22-23. Utilizing three 26-foot trucks, BTI moved the rest of Henkel’s research and development lab to the Henkel warehouse and lab, a location in Seabrook, New Hampshire.

One of the bigger challenges of this lab relocation was moving another large piece of equipment, which Henkel calls #2, which weighed in at 2,000 pounds. This delivery was made at ground level and needed to go over a concrete entryway pad. This move also required the piece of equipment to be hoisted and put on a pallet, similar to the 5,000-pound piece of equipment.

The other challenge to this move was space. The new research and development lab was 2,000 square feet. The items moved were taken from an 8,000 square-foot lab. Fitting 8,000 square feet of stuff into a 2,000 square-foot space was a challenge, one that BTI met.

“As a lab manager, one thing that I really appreciated is that BTI planned and executed the packing and the loading portion of the move so that my team could work as long as it possibly could,” said John Stankiewicz, director product development for Henkel Adhesive Technologies.

“Any move that involves equipment of that size and weight is a challenge,” said Rohlfing. “We ‘were thankful to have a good team in place and the full cooperation of the staff at Henkel to make this move go smoothly.”

BTI offers a wide range of moving services for wide variety of laboratories. Specialties include: research; life science; food service; water testing; coating; butterfly lab; ocean research labs; planetary sciences; virology labs; hearing labs; shock compression lab; coatings/wet and dry labs; fermentation; labs; magnet labs; chemical labs; pharmaceutical labs; and petroleum R&D labs.

In addition to the planning and actual move, BTI lab relocation services include coordination with facilities and IT staff at both origin and destination to ensure a smooth transition for the lab to reopen ASAP at the new location. Additionally, BTI’s lab relocation division can offer storage options on both ends of a move should the facility need time to assimilate the new lab into the building.

MRHB DeFi Gets Support Down Under from Blockchain Australia

Melbourne, Australia, Oct 21, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- In a move set to broaden the appeal of decentralized Islamic Finance down under, ethical and faith-based MRHB DeFi has been backed by Australian Institutions such as Blockchain Australia.

Blockchain Australia is a Melbourne-based technology products and services company that provides industry and company-specific blockchain solutions for startups and entrepreneurs, investors, corporate teams, and venture capitalists and at the same time encourages new ideas by incubating them with the required guidance and mentorship.

The blockchain firm made strategic investments in MRHB DeFi, a halal ecosystem DeFi platform built on Islamic principles of fairness and benevolence. It aims to bring an ethical, community-first focus to the world of decentralized finance, which has grown in popularity and size from a market with a total value locked of USD1 billion less than a year and a half ago, to USD220 billion today.

“I would like to thank Blockchain Australia for their support,” said MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed. “It is crucial for us to work with organisations that are in a position to help shape the way blockchain and decentralized finance can develop in Australia. I look forward to working with Blockchain Australia to forward our shared goals, and deliver an ethics-focused brand of blockchain to Australia and beyond.”

Ralph Kalsi, CEO and Founder of Blockchain Australia, expressed solidarity with the vision of the ecosystem startup: “We believe in Marhaba’s vision, which is a unique offering encompassing Islamic trading principles with smart contract-based transparency and open not only to the Islamic community but to the entire world – a laudable ethical cause that has motivated us in Blockchain Australia to back the initiative and help ensure its success.”

Virginia is for (Cannabis) Lovers, State Implements Cannabis Legalization in The Most Rational Fashion

Richmond, VA, October 21, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- That sound you hear is cannabis professionals applauding Virginia’s approach to cannabis legalization. As each of the 50 states rolls out its own legalization plans, some have gotten it right and others have gotten it quite wrong.

Having been involved with the cannabis profession since its legal inception, I believe the Governor of VA made the right moves. Instead of merely decriminalizing possession, they have legalized home grow along with the dispensaries.

It might seem like a minor nuance, but it’s actually incredibly important with huge ramifications. Some states, such as New Jersey, have legalized possession and legalized dispensaries, but did not legalize personal home grow. With all the of the bureaucratic regulatory framework-building that needs to be done, and the licensing and building processes required, it will realistically be two to three years before dispensaries are opening doors for business. Where are people supposedly getting their hands on these 6 ounces of weed, then? The answer: the black market.

Not enabling personal home grow means that cannabis users are going to turn to the black market in those states. But in Virginia, there’s a clear and legal path to obtaining legal cannabis in the meantime: growing your own at home.

Our company, Green Goddess Supply produces an award-winning home grow system called “The Armoire” which is designed to look like furniture and meld nicely into any home décor. We have seen a big uptick in sales of The Armoire in Virginia since July 1st. Last month 50% of our sales came from Virginia. It stuck out like a sore thumb to us. So, we went back and looked and sure enough it started around mid-July. That’s when we made the connection.

Most cannabis enthusiasts don’t want to deal with red tape or politics. They just want high quality, clean, organic bud at home quickly, easily and inexpensively. The new Virginia cannabis legislations allows that to happen.

Virginia is now the state of lovers and cannabis lovers.

By Eric Robichaud, CEO at Green Goddess Supply.

Eric Robichaud is the CEO at Green Goddess Supply, 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. Green Goddess Supply strives to exceed expectations and delight customers with quality products and amazing customer service.

The Armoire, a turnkey home grow system that even your most judgmental aunt won’t detect, is patented by and a trademark of Green Goddess Supply.

The importance of SEO

Podgorica, Montenegro 19 October 2021 /ExPressRelease UK/- SEO optimizacija is the term referred to search engine optimization or search engine optimization. It is, therefore, about improving the visibility of a web project in search results.

Currently SEO is also a discipline that includes the study, analysis and techniques to improve the positioning of a website in the results offered by search engines.

SEO consists of a series of techniques to increase access to a website through search engines. At present it is mainly focused on the guidelines established by Google.

The position that our website occupies in the search results fundamentally depends on two types of factors. Internal and external factors.

The phases of an SEO project

To face an SEO project , it is essential to know in depth the business model of the web that you want to position, know the objectives, organization and strategies.

SEO work is carried out from two perspectives. An internal perspective known as SEO On Page and an external perspective known as SEO Off Page , having to be very clear that they are two visions of the same project.

The first thing to consider in order to achieve a successful project is to build a website that responds to the queries that users make in search engines. For this, there are tools that allow us to investigate the keywords or keywords that are used and the number of searches for each one. We know this work as Keyword Research or keyword research. In this way and based on them we must build our website. This is undoubtedly the first and most important factor. From these searches we can conclude the hierarchy of content that our website should have.

The importance of content

In Keyword Research it is important to identify the competition and know the terms by which they position themselves.

From here, the generation of original content is essential for the success of an SEO project.

It is clear that the content is fundamental, it is the what, but the how also matters, that is, how we offer that content to users and also to Google, which will analyze our page and must understand it and be able to track and classify all content and respond in a suitable way for all devices, especially mobiles that are the main information query device. For this we must build a responsive website that adapts to the device and that also returns the content very quickly, for which a technical optimization is necessary that will be achieved using the appropriate technology, correctly sizing the server and optimizing the web code.

External factors


So far we have laid the foundations for the success of our project and the speed of growth will depend on external factors. Basically the authority that search engines grant to our website. This authority depends on the references that exist in other sites to our website, or what is the same of the links that our website receives and the Link juice that they provide us. Although the links are not always positive. There are toxic links that harm us.

The authority also depends on other factors, such as the notoriety of our brand that is translated into the searches that there are about our brand and the references from social networks or social signals.

Holabird’s Autumn Splendor Western Americana Auction, Oct. 28-Nov. 1, Has Over 3,200 Lots in Many Collecting Categories

Reno, NV, USA, October 17, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Holabird Western Americana Collections’ five-day Autumn Splendor Western Americana Auction, October 28th-November 1st, is packed with over 3,200 lots of Americana, railroadiana, mining collectibles, numismatics, stock certificates, rare books, art and more, online and live in the Reno gallery at 3555 Airway Drive, starting at 8 am Pacific time all five days.

The massive sale will feature several important collections, beginning with the Stuart “Scotty” MacKenzie Montana collection. Stuart was a lawyer, inveterate collector and dealer. He scoured the backroads of northern Montana looking for documents, archives, company files, libraries, correspondence – most anything historical except bottles and tokens.

“After Stuart’s death, we brought back two 28-foot trucks and a large, tall van full of goods, probably 18-19 tons of collectible material,” said Fred Holabird of Holabird Western Americana Collections. “A local auction was held for some of the items in his store, which had been closed for about ten years.”

Stuart had a strong love of mining items. He acquired major collections in Butte, Virginia City, Pony, Helena and many other towns. “We put together a massive Montana town document collection of over 500 different locations – nearly 600,” Mr. Holabird remarked. “There are document archives from many of Montana’s most famous towns that are being offered in this sale and upcoming sales.”

Another major holding are his fruit labels and other labels, from the 1870s through about 1950 that came from all over America and even Europe.

MRHB DeFi Receives Strategic Investment from Mozaic, New World Group’s Technology Investment Arm

London, United Kingdom, Oct 15, 2021 -/ExPressRelease UK/- Community-focused DeFi platform MRHB DeFi has received a strategic investment from London-based investment platform Mozaic to support its transformative vision of bringing the value of the cryptoverse to financially excluded communities around the world. Mozaic is part of New World Group – a global diversified investment company with more than USD 2.5 Billion of group assets-under-management.

The UK presents a key opportunity to nurture a financially inclusive cryptoverse and this investment is aimed at expanding the reach of MRHB DeFi beyond its core Asia and Middle East base to support the engagement of new UK users and communities who are seeking a more ethical and or faith-based approach to crypto market participation.

“With a current market capitalisation of USD 2 trillion and growing – the crypto asset space represents an exciting growth opportunity for us and MRHB DeFi’s focus on ethical and inclusive finance resonates strongly with Mozaic’s investment thesis,” says New World Group Partner Sonny Gupta.

“The strength and commitment of the MRHB team made them natural partners for our inaugural investment into the decentralised finance sector,” he adds.

“Mozaic’s investment focus on robust and scalable technology businesses with a mindset of long-term value creation, made them natural partners for us as we build the world’s first ethical DeFi platform” says MRHB DeFi CEO Naquib Mohammed.

“The UK represents a key strategic investor community for MRHB DeFi – and one which we hope to engage better with high quality institutional partners,” he also notes.

MRHB DeFi was founded with a vision of providing greater access to excluded and cautious communities to the growing opportunities and utilities of the cryptoverse, and has a particular focus on delivering faith-based DeFi services which adhere to the ethical investment and financing principles rooted in Islamic Finance, many of which align with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. Such business practices include those that avoid interest, usury, social exploitation and other acts deemed unethical as well as support sustainability, asset/utility backed financing, transparency and equitable risk/reward sharing.

With the Islamic Finance industry sized at around USD 3 trillion of assets, bringing even a small portion of Shariah-sensitive liquidity into DeFi will represent a major boost to the total value of the DeFi sector worldwide.

The investment from Mozaic follows investments from Contango Digital Assets, NewTribe Capital, Sheesha Finance, Acreditus Partners and other institutional investors.

About MRHB DeFi:
MRHB DeFi is a decentralised finance platform built to bring ethics to the DeFi space with an approach that supports the inclusion of faith-based and other excluded communities in addition to existing crypto-natives so that everyone can benefit from the full empowerment potential of DeFi to help build a true peer-to-peer financial and economic value system.

Based on the tenets of blockchain such as trust, transparency, and security, MRHB DeFi has encapsulated universally applicable principles of Islamic Finance into those tenets of blockchain to render a suite of offerings that are also ESG compliant.

The project is backed by a diverse and strong team with backgrounds spanning crypto, technology, faith-compliant investing, finance and seasoned institutional veterans of industry. The public sale offering will be in December. Register your interest and read more about MRHB DeFi’s Shariah Concept Paper, Lite and White Paper here: https://marhabadefi.com/info-centre.php
