Veripath Announces 2.49% Quarterly Jump in NAV

Farmland continues to demonstrate compelling financial characteristics

CALGARY, ALBERTA, CANADA, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE, ATTENTION INVESTMENT EDITORS – October 22, 2020 – Calgary

Veripath Farmland Partners is pleased to announce a unit price update. As of September 30th, 2020, the Veripath Farmland LP unit price is $1.080/unit an increase of 2.49% from the previous quarter NAV. Even with COVID-19, farmland continues to demonstrate all the compelling financial characteristics that drew us to this asset class – low volatility, consistent nominal rates of return, and low correlation to many traditional assets.

Veripath Farmland LP is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba only, while its sister fund Veripath Farmland (UR) LP is structured to own farmland in the rest of Canada excluding Saskatchewan and Manitoba. Both fund’s unit prices are expected by management to trend similarly to one another over time with neither fund expected to materially out-perform the other over the long-term.

Current aggregate portfolio holdings include approximately 20,000 acres of Canadian farmland diversified across geography and operators. Veripath is working to add another 20,000 acres by year-end 2020, bringing the total to over 40,000 acres.

By using an open-ended, evergreen structure rather than the traditional fixed term approach, investors can select the holding period that best suits their portfolio requirements allowing both shorter and longer duration holdings to exist side by side.

Canadian farmland represents a market of over 160 million acres with an estimated total capitalization of approximately $500 billion. The strategy is built around the core premise that the world is in a bull market in agriculture driven by negative real interest rates and incremental demand from emerging markets and, accordingly, investments with direct or indirect exposure to agriculture commodities in a politically stable environment such as Canada should provide above average returns.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted return profile. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation.

TGTE Wins Its Appeal Against LTTE Terrorism Ban

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — TGTE wins its appeal against LTTE terrorism ban

The Proscribed Organisations Appeal Commission (‘POAC’) handed down its judgment in Arumugam and Others v SSHD (PC/04/2019), finding that the Home Secretary had acted unlawfully.

The appeal was brought by members of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam against the decision of the Home Secretary to refuse their application to remove the Liberation Tigers of Tamil Eelam (‘the LTTE’) from the list of organisations proscribed under the Terrorism Act in the UK. The appeal was brought on the basis that the Tamil Tigers were not involved in terrorism, and their continued proscription prevented proper public debate regarding the establishment of an independent Tamil state.

In its open judgment POAC found that the information presented to the Home Secretary when he (at the time) made his decision to maintain the LTTE on the list of proscribed organisations “materially misstated” the conclusions reached by the Proscription Review Group (the expert body whose role it is to assess the threat posed by groups who are considered for proscription under the Terrorism Act 2011). POAC also found that the
submission inaccurately summarised the views of JTAC (‘the Joint Terrorism Analysis Centre’). POAC therefore concluded that the decision to maintain the LTTE on the list of proscribed organisations was flawed.

Visuvanathan Rudrakamaran, Prime Minister of the TGTE commented:

Today we have taken a significant step in our legal fight. This paves the way for the next steps towards our greater goal of achieving justice for the Tamil cause. Today's decision amounts to a victory for us Tamils in our struggle for justice.

It also shows that the Tamils as a People have the capability to challenge unjust actions coming from any quarters, however powerful they may be. Speaking on behalf of the Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (TGTE), the aims the LTTE stood for and the objectives of the TGTE are the same, namely, the establishment of an independent state of Tamil Eelam. Removal of the “terrorism” label is essential for the people to campaign for an independent state.

Removal of that label will enable us to expose the structural genocide being perpetrated on the Tamils by the Sri Lankan State under the cover of fighting "terrorism.”

POAC will now hear submissions from the parties as to what steps should be taken in response to the TGTE’s successful appeal. The TGTE argue that the Home Secretary should immediately remove the LTTE from the list of banned organisations.


Notes for editors:

The Transnational Government of Tamil Eelam (‘the TGTE’) was formed after the end of the civil war in Sri Lanka in 2009 and advocates for the right of Tamil people to self determination in the form of an independent sovereign state of Tamil Eelam in North East Sri Lanka. It is separate from the LTTE.

The TGTE is represented in the open proceedings by Maya Lester QC and Malcolm Birdling of Brick Court Chambers with Jamie Potter and Caroline Robinson of Bindmans LLP.

The Government is represented by Sir James Eadie QC, Ben Watson and Emily Wilsdon.

The appeal was heard by Mrs Justice Laing and two lay panel members, Richard Whittam QC and Philip Nelson CMG.

Hiking in the beautiful nature of the Inland Northwest and my love of travel are what inspired me to design this jewelry collection.”

— Megan Petersen

SPOKANE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Inspired by her love of travel and outdoor hiking in the beautiful inland northwest, artisan jewelry designer Megan Petersen crafted a new and unique jewelry collection that is now available on her website, meganpetersenjewelry.com. She entitled it, The Adventurer Collection.

The collection includes several unisex pieces that would make ideal gift options for the outdoorsy, nature-lover on one's holiday gift list.

The jewelry collection includes a working compass necklace and bracelet, a snap on faux leather bracelet, a holographic, animated globe pendant necklace, fun miniature tree earrings, a tree of life necklace, and more.

Megan works with super tiny seed beads and detailed charms to create pieces that wearers and observers will be able to stare at for ages.

Though the jewelry is simple enough to be worn with the current casual style every day clothing people are donning for their outfits these days, they are intricate to tell a story.

The story these bohemian-vibe jewelry pieces tell is one of exploration, adventure, and wonder at the world around us.

"If you have a favorite piece, be sure to grab it now," Megan warns her online fans, "Some of these won't be restocked if they sell out."

We hear you, Megan! Because while traveling may have been restricted for us this year, our yearning for adventure could never be tampered.

Full Family Transition Coach Jack A Ori Helps Parents Become Strong Supporters of Their Transgender Kids

BALDWIN, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — BALDWIN, NY, October 22, 2020 – Using a transgender child’s correct pronouns can be a powerful step toward acceptance, but parents often struggle with understanding how to do it, especially if their children use words that are unfamiliar to them such as “ze.” Full Family Transition Coach Jack A Ori offers help for those parents who feel pronoun wars are adding to tensions with their kids.

“Pronouns can be challenging for parents, especially if they are used to calling their child by one set of words for 14+ years or aren’t familiar with the ones their child wants them to use,” Ori says. He began the push to help parents with this issue immediately after International Pronouns Day on October 21, 2020, which celebrates the variety of pronouns transgender people use and encourages people to use the pronouns they feel best fit their identities.

Since beginning his own gender transition in 2012, Ori has been a passionate advocate for transgender kids, often helping them forge better relationships with their parents. “I didn’t come out until well into adulthood, and once I did it was hard for both me and my parents. Ever since, it’s been my mission to make it easier for the next family who has a transgender kid than it was for me,” says Ori. He is close to his parents today despite the rough start after he first came out to them and has dedicated his life to helping the next generation of transgender people, including having worked on the Trevor Project crisis line for several years.

He encourages parents to consider using their child’s new pronouns if they aren’t doing so already and asks them what they are willing to do to become their child’s strongest ally and bring their family together.

– Are you willing to talk to your child about what pronouns they want you to use and when?
– Are you willing to get guidance from someone who has been there about how to have this and other difficult conversations with your transgender child?
– What if a 30-minute phone call could start you on the path to transforming your relationship with your transgender child? Would that be worth the time to you?

Ori is currently offering free 30-minute discovery calls for those parents who are struggling with using their child’s new pronouns and/or might not be seeing eye-to-eye with the child’s other parent about how to approach this issue. There is no cost, no opt-in, and no strings attached. “I just want to help as many parents as I can. I know it would have been a lot easier for me and my family if we could have gotten on the same page earlier, but we didn’t have the benefit of someone to talk to who had recently transitioned. So now I want to make sure that other families get that support,” says Ori. “We can’t solve everything in one call, but we can see how I can best help you and get you on the right path toward creating the supportive relationship with your child you yearn for.”

Detox and Improve Circulation with Revolutionary New Infrared Sauna Treatments at The Invigory

Detox and Improve Circulation with Revolutionary New Infrared Sauna Treatments at The Invigory

CHARLOTTE, NC, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When you think of a sauna, what often comes to mind is a sweaty environment endured for a short period of time — often 15 minutes or less. Not so, when it comes to Infrared Sauna Therapy at The Invigory. Spa guests can expect to spend a restful 45 minutes enjoying gentle heating from infrared rays, improving circulation, boosting the immune system, and improving joint flexibility. The application of heat for healing and recovery is not a new concept, but one that has been relied on for generations.

Infrared Sauna — A Luxurious Approach to Holistic Healing

Provided by Brian Daly and his wife Helen Daly, owners of the Invigory Wellness Studio in Charlotte, NC, the infrared sauna offers an experience far superior to that of a traditional sauna. Infrared panels installed throughout the room provide focused waves of energy that warms your body and not the air around you. An immune-boosting healthy sweat from the infrared sauna provides a deep sense of relaxation without the overwhelming heat or oppressive atmosphere.

Brian Daly of The Invigory Shares Benefits of Relaxing Infrared Sauna Room

"We are always looking for new ways to introduce wellness to the Charlotte community", notes Brian Daly of The Invigory. "Our infrared sauna is in great demand as a holistic approach to pain relief and improved circulation. The health benefits increase dramatically when used on a regular basis." The idea of saunas dates back to the days of ancient Rome. Cultures as diverse as Native Americans use sweat lodges and Asian cultures also boast similar mechanisms for purification of the body and mind.

Infrared Sauna Room is Ideal for Corporate Events or Bridal Showers

Wellness treatments are an excellent way to celebrate with a group, and the infrared sauna experience is perfect for everything from bridal showers to corporate events. Your team or group can relax together, strengthening bonds, all while reaping the benefits of holistic wellness. The salt therapy room or whole body cryotherapy options also work well for corporate events or team get-togethers.

Soothing Warmth to Improve Healing After An Injury

One of the primary uses of heat therapy is to help joints or injuries heal. Over time, our muscles and joints lose critical elasticity. The application of heat improves blood circulation thus boosting the body's natural healing capacity. Our entire body benefits from the healing warmth from an infrared sauna, which in turn strengthens our immune response to illness. Reducing inflammation and removing toxins from the body after an infrared sauna session brings a rejuvenated glow to the skin and help athletes recover more quickly after a tough workout.

Downsizing? The Kovels List 7 Things You Should Not Throw Away

The Kovels say take care when clearing your clutter—some things are worth more than you think.

CLEVELAND, OHIO, US, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The antiques and collectibles experts at Kovels.com are always asked what to keep and what not to keep when cleaning house or downsizing. Here are 7 things you should not throw away—they may have more value than you might expect.

1. Old typewriters, especially the red Olivetti Valentine in a case
The first practical typewriter was invented in the 1860s; then came electric typewriters, portable typewriters, and by the 1970s, word processors and computers. One of the most collectible typewriters is the red plastic Olivetti typewriter designed by Ettore Sottsass in 1968. It is an icon, displayed in museums as a classic example of modern design. If you have a red typewriter check for these clues: It will say” Valentine” or “Valentine S” on the lid. Early examples have a small ribbon spool cap while newer ones look more like a hat. And on the back near the handle on the frame is the name of the city where it was made. A working Olivetti Valentine typewriter with a case, both in excellent condition, is worth about $500.

2. Danish wooden toys from the 1950s
In 1951, Kay Bojesen, a Danish prize-winning designer of silver wares, made a group of hand carved wooden toy animals, very modern-looking, with moving arms and legs. There was a monkey, hippo, zebra, elephant, and birds. All were made of teak and a lighter wood, 12 inches high and smaller, and some were painted. A 12-inch monkey recently sold at auction for $5,909. The large size is rare; others sell for less. A lot of two vintage Kay Bojesen midcentury modern elephant toys sold for $1,560 in a Florida auction.

3. Miriam Haskell costume jewelry
Costume jewelry by Miriam Haskell sells for higher prices than most costume jewelry. Her elaborate beaded necklaces and pins with large colored glass stones can sell for up to $1,500 if marked. Haskell (1899–1981) made jewelry from the 1920s to 1960s. She used gilt filigree, fake pearls, crystals, glass beads from Murano and “rose montees,” crystals cut in the shapes of roses in a silver mount that could be sewn in place. Because the designs are so intricate and the pieces made with so many special details, prices are determined by size and condition. Corroded metal and chipped or missing stones dramatically lower the value, as does the lack of a Haskell mark. Pins with large, colored center stones that resemble emeralds or rubies, and extravagant necklaces sell for the most. Look for the vintage marks; the company is still in business. A Miriam Haskell pin and earrings with green Czech glass, rhinestones and baroque pearls, and the early stamped Miriam Haskell horseshoe mark sold in an online jewelry auction for $750.

4. Commercial perfume bottles and large exhibit factices
Some perfumes were packaged in expensive glass containers like those by Lalique, and the empty bottles are worth hundreds of dollars. Also, department stores were loaned giant-sized bottles called factices—ten times the size of a normal perfume bottle—for display. Many perfume bottle collectors tried to buy these large bottles, and some were lucky enough to get one. They sell for as much as $500 today. Even the regular-sized empty bottles, if made by an important company, sell for over $100.

5. Lamp hardware
Check before you throw out parts of old lamps. Auction houses are selling pieces of original lamps, such as the acorn chain pulls for Handel lamps or the center fittings that hold lampshades. A lot consisting of Tiffany and Handel lamp parts that held the shade in place just sold for $3,520.

6. Firecracker labels
Vintage Asian firecracker labels are very elaborate and very collectible. Firecracker crate labels, as well as the individual firecracker labels, sell.

7. Sewer covers
Sewer covers from streets that were torn up and repaved are being used as tops for small tables. They are also selling well.

Antonio Luis Llinas Oñate, CEO of Europcar México; This is the “Safe Mobility” protocol in Europcar Mexico

For Antonio Llinas, the most important thing is the safety and well-being of employees and users.

CANCUN, QUINTANA ROO, MEXICO, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the face of the new Covid-19 pandemic, many activities have been punished, especially those in the tourism sector. The arrival of this new virus implied a total change in people's lives and for Antonio Llinas Oñate, Europcar Mexico CEO, it was a challenge to take the change overnight.

The businessman Antonio Luis Llinas Oñate, had opted for digitization in 2019, so with a team of specialists, they developed new technology that would make it easier to rent a car in Mexico, due to the increase in passengers at Cancun airports and Mexico City demanded faster service when delivering the car. The CEO of Europcar, always aware of what users comment on social networks and a satisfaction survey, decided to use technology to make the flow of passengers more agile and avoid long lines.
Already at the beginning of 2020 we saw how online Check-in solved this problem, but in the face of the global crisis due to the new virus that emerged in Wuhan, China Antonio Llinas decided to act by implementing the following protocol:

Safe mobility
• Arriving at the Office, one of the staff members take the clients temperature, apply antibacterial gel and invite to use the disinfection mats.
• Access is only allowed to the driver and credit card holder.
• All reservations made from the official website of Europcar Mexico have online Check-in available to pre-register and reduce the time indoors.
• All the staff in the Offices have the necessary protective equipment.
• In cities like Cancun, customers can use the Self-Service and complete 90% of the process using previously disinfectant tablets. When finished, the Tablet shows in which spot the car is parked.
• Before going to the car, you must go to the counter to apply the warranty retention: we are working to digitize it.
• Cars are previously disinfected properly, paying special attention to 41 important points of most human contact.
• And if your flight is canceled, don't worry, Eurocar México helps you change the date of your reservation as many times as you need, without penalty, even if you still don't have new dates, your reservation is insured for one year until you decide to return to use.
For Antonio Llinas, the most important thing is the safety and well-being of employees and users, which is why this security protocol is strictly carried out. So you can keep moving without anything stopping your plans.

New Name Solidifies the Integration of Two Notable Woman-Owned Engineering Firms

TranSmart/EJM Announces Name Change to TranSmart

CHICAGO, IL, UNITED STATES, October 22, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — EJM Engineering, Inc. DBA TranSmart/EJM Corporation, a wholly-owned subsidiary of TranSmart Technologies, Inc., announces its official name change to TranSmart, Inc., effective immediately. This announcement signifies the final step in the successful integration of two highly successful women-owned engineering firms: TranSmart Technologies—with a solid foundation in innovative technology applications for improved infrastructure and advanced transportation systems, and EJM Engineering—highly regarded for their expertise in the more traditional transportation engineering disciplines.

The company has been doing business as TranSmart/EJM Corporation since TranSmart Technologies acquired EJM Engineering in 2017, a move that has allowed each company’s clients, partners, and employees the opportunity to experience the broader range of services and benefits—now the company moves forward under one unified brand.

Dr. Connie Li, PE, President and CEO emphasized that, “…because building meaningful professional partnerships with our clients and providing them with the best possible solutions have always been paramount for the TranSmart team, it was very important that we organically approach the timing of our name change so we would be truly authentic as we present a unified front. I couldn’t be more excited to have reached this important milestone as we officially become one TranSmart.” Dr. Li also declared, “…by adding such talent to our already amazing staff and increasing our service offerings, we have exceeded our goals. We are changing our name, not our people, and I am proud of how our passionate and dedicated team has united and continues to excel in helping our clients successfully reach their objectives.”

TranSmart, Inc. is one of the largest women- and minority-owned Disadvantaged Business Enterprises that specializes in transportation engineering in the Midwest. The company doubled its staff and significantly expanded its resources and capabilities with the 2017 acquisition of EJM Engineering. Since then, TranSmart has experienced congruent growth that includes a new employee experience specialist, improved employee benefits, a strengthened business development and marketing team, and the addition of the Richmond, Va. and Milwaukee, Wis. offices. TranSmart’s growth has resulted in over 100 full-time employees including 34 licensed professional engineers.

In addition to the name change, the company has launched a new website. Detailed services offered under the TranSmart brand can be found at TranSmartInc.com.

TranSmart, Inc. is a certified Disadvantaged Business Enterprise (DBE), Minority Business Enterprise (MBE), and Women Business Enterprise (WBE).

For more information, please call TranSmart at 312-922-1700 or visit TranSmartInc.com.


About TranSmart

Founded in 1996 by Dr. Connie Li, PE, a pioneer of Intelligent Transportation Systems (ITS) engineering and design, TranSmart Technologies began as a one-woman operation in Madison, Wisconsin. Under Dr. Li’s leadership, TranSmart Technologies quickly became synonymous with smart transportation engineering and design, and continuously expanded its client base and geographic service areas. TranSmart Technologies’ technological expertise was greatly complimented with the addition of more traditional engineering disciplines through the 2017 acquisition of Chicago-based EJM Engineering—a move that also resulted in the unified TranSmart name.
