Dr. Bill Thomas, of Eden Alternative and Green Houses Announces “What’s Next” for Senior Housing

May 4, 2021

DENVER, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Recently Dr. William Thomas, founder of Eden Alternative®, Green Houses® and ChangingAging.org, spent five years traveling the country talking with elders and people who care about elders in more than 125 cities. He heard their stories, hopes, and fears. Thomas states, "It turns out that older people pretty much want what everyone else wants: to belong to a community that includes people of all ages and remain connected to the living world." Thomas, a nationally recognized geriatrician, has been outspoken about the devastation of the COVID-19 pandemic on elders and their families. Thomas states, "Infection control policies protected us but, over the past year, elders paid a terrible price for this protection… a pandemic of loneliness and social isolation." Thomas is introducing a new option for elders that offers "the possibility of being independent—together," called Kallimos Communities. With a design once known as "bungalow courts," and now "pocket neighborhoods," new multi-generational communities offer small dwellings clustered around shared green space. Kallimos plans to reduce the cost of living, encourage neighborliness, and feature optional shared households that Millennials call "co-living." Thomas states, "Some of the loneliest elders in America live at home on streets filled with houses but without friends, family, or neighbors as part of their daily life, and…large senior living buildings offer a solution for some but can be expensive and often carry the stigma of being "old folks' homes." Thomas first wrote about this type of living in the 1990's in his first novel, In the Arms of Elders, telling the story of a land where elders "lived in the heart of the community" that was home to people of all ages and abilities. The community, "Kallimos" is a word that describes "a beautiful way of living."  Kallimos Communities are MAGIC (multi-ability, multi-generational, inclusive, co-living) developed at the University of Southern Indiana, as a place people of all ages and abilities can call home.  Thomas states, "Clearly the public's preferences, and policymakers' priorities, are swinging toward greater access to home and community-based services, giving people more choices and control over where they want to live." Thomas sees the need for the architecture and neighborhood cultures to catch up with "the way we want to live in the future" stating that "Kallimos Communities will bring new neighborhoods to life and help the people who choose to live in them experience the greatest health and well-being possible."  Learn more at http://www.kallimos.com.

Traditional and PTO Plans Dominate the Paid Leave Landscape, with Unlimited Plans Trailing Far Behind, According to XpertHR’s 2021 Paid Leave Survey

May 4, 2021

NEW PROVIDENCE, N.J., May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Traditional paid leave plans (where all leave is in separate categories) are the most common type of leave plan, with 51% of the 639 employers responding to XpertHR's Paid Leave Survey 2021 indicating they have this type of plan, compared with 41% for paid time off (PTO) plans (where all or most leave is in a single PTO bank), and 4% for unlimited paid leave plans (where all or most leave has no predetermined limits). Continue Reading Traditional and PTO plans are by far the most common types of paid leave plans, with unlimited plans trailing far behind. Union employers are more likely to have a traditional paid leave plan than non-union organizations. "These findings show that despite the buzz surrounding unlimited leave plans in the HR and benefits space in recent years, traditional and PTO plans maintain their supremacy in the world of paid leave," says Andrew Hellwege, Surveys Editor, XpertHR. This year's results are similar to the those found when XpertHR first surveyed this topic in 2020, when 49% of employers had a traditional plan and 44% had a PTO plan. (Unlimited plans were first tracked in the 2021 survey.) Additionally, the survey found that union status is a strong indicator of the type of paid leave plan a company has. Over two-thirds (69%) of responding organizations that have at least some union-represented employees indicated that they have a traditional leave plan for all or most workers, compared with 49% of non-union companies. Conversely, 30% of union employers have a PTO plan compared with 43% of non-union organizations. Unlimited leave plans were rare among responding non-union employers (5%) and nonexistent among union workplaces.The survey also asked employers with a traditional leave plan to indicate which categories of paid leave they offered and found that paid vacation (98%), paid sick leave (91%), paid bereavement leave (83%), and paid leave for jury duty (75%) were the top four most common categories of leave. (The survey asked about over 10 types of paid leave categories for traditional plans.)An analysis of PTO plans found that a majority (64%) combine all paid leave into a single PTO bank – meaning, an employee would use PTO for being sick, taking vacation, bereavement, etc. – while 30% provide some form of paid leave in addition to the PTO bank. (The survey excluded company-wide paid holidays as paid leave.) "This survey highlights a defining difference between traditional and PTO plans -- traditional plans almost always have separate vacation and sick leave categories, while PTO plans usually lump all leave into one PTO bank," notes Hellwege.XpertHR's Paid Leave Survey 2021 was conducted from February 23, 2021, to March 19, 2021, and published on April 28, 2021. The survey includes the responses from 639 US employers of various industries and workforce sizes. The total estimated number of employees of responding organizations is 2,112,961. The survey report covers the prevalence of traditional, PTO, and unlimited leave plans, as well as the amount of leave offered per year of service, leave carryover, leave donation, leave payouts, and more.XpertHR has been providing HR solutions since 2002, empowering organizations across the globe to build successful workforces and create a purposeful workplace for all.

Colorado’s Premier Cannabis Brand, LePow Extracts, Dives into the Recreational Market with Their Signature Rick Simpson Oil

May 4, 2021

DENVER, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- For medical marijuana patients in Colorado, the name LePow Extracts is synonymous with unmatched quality; and now, recreational consumers will be able to enjoy the brand's exceptional extracts as well. Their signature Rick Simpson Oil, as well as solventless concentrates and rosin, will be available for purchase in several of Colorado's recreational dispensaries. In keeping with their mission to provide medical-grade product access for all, LePow Extracts is debuting a curated collection of products for recreational consumers. Continue Reading LePow Extracts RSO SYRINGE Industry thought leaders and consumers alike are particularly enthusiastic about the newly-increased access to LePow Extracts' Rick Simpson Oil, which was initially released for medical consumption in 2018. A collaborative effort between brand founders Tye Lam and Marcus Taylor, in conjunction with their close friend and retired chemist, David Spector, the full-spectrum oil is distinctly rich in cannabinoids. Spector was himself a medical marijuana patient suffering from cancer and aimed to formulate a product that could support the cancer treatment process while also enhancing an overall sense of well-being. Eight years in the making, the final result was the brand's incomparable Rick Simpson Oil made with 100% organic cannabis. As detailed on the now-live LePow Extracts website, one of the many characteristics that set their products apart is the complex processes by which they are made: We began producing our signature Rick Simpson Oil (RSO) in 2018 and have worked tirelessly to improve our process and produce the highest quality RSO in Colorado. We go above and beyond to triple-filter our RSO after extraction—removing the unwanted fats, waxes, and sediment that lower potency and do not offer any benefit. In 2020, our team launched LePow Extracts' line of full-spectrum edibles, which are infused with our highly regarded RSO. These edibles contain the novel cannabinoids and terpenes that make RSO so unique.Using an extraction process that utilizes food-grade ethanol, LePow Extracts obtains a clean, premium-grade extract. Triple filtration eliminates any unwanted elements, making for an impeccably high-quality RSO. Packaged in a 1000mg syringe, LePow Extracts RSO can be conveniently enjoyed via dabbing or vaping. Because it is fully-decarboxylated, the RSO delivers the sought-after effects most commonly available in medicinal products only – but now that it's for sale recreationally, you don't need a CO medical marijuana card to reap the benefits.Since the brand's beginning, LePow Extracts has represented the gold standard in medical-grade marijuana extracts. And today, after much anticipation, recreational cannabis consumers in Colorado can also experience an elevated experience that exceeds every expectation. Consumers can contact their local recreational dispensary to request they carry LePow Extracts products, and dispensaries can directly connect with the brand for wholesale inquiries. About LePow Extracts: Eight years in the making, LePow Extracts is a premium cannabis brand developed by one of the industry's leading medical dispensaries, Kind Meds. Based in Denver, Colorado, the company serves consumers throughout the state by providing access to exceptional-quality products with medical-grade formulations. Using the highest standard of extraction technology, LePow Extracts elevates the standard for consistency, purity, and quality, offering a new level of product quality that few other companies can. Best known for their small-batch, full-spectrum cannabis concentrates and edibles, prioritizing whole-plant medicine and affordability alike.For more information about LePow Extracts and the brand's medical-grade cannabis products, please contact Marcus Taylor at 309282@email4pr.com or 720-379-8431.SOURCE LePow Extracts

GIOSTAR Launches Subsidiary to Combat COVID-19 and Long COVID

May 4, 2021

SAN DIEGO, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- Global Institute of Stem Cell Therapy and Research (GIOSTAR), the worldwide leader in regenerative technologies, is pleased to announce the formation of GIOCOV. The company – launched in tandem with TAG Investment Bankers LTD of London (TAG) – is a wholly owned subsidiary aimed at delivering stem cell-based treatments for the acute phase of COVID-19, along with the chronic phase (known as Long COVID). Continue Reading GIOSTAR launches subsidiary to combat COVID-19 and Long COVID in collaboration with TAG Investment Bankers GIOSTAR is pleased to officially announce its pre-IPO fund raising round, the details of which are available at the TAG Investment Bankers A Long Haul for MillionsAs of May 2021, roughly 280 million individuals have been fully vaccinated against COVID-19. The worldwide rollout has helped contain the impact and reduce the high morbidity rates of the disease – which has claimed more than 3 million lives. However, data reveals that, even after recovering from COVID-19, many patients continue experiencing a compendium of debilitating symptoms known collectively as Long COVID. These "long-haulers" may experience one or both of the following: Symptoms experienced throughout the course of COVID-19: fatigue, cognitive impairment (brain fog), difficulty breathing, headaches, difficulty exercising, depression, sleep difficulty, loss of sense of taste or smell New symptoms: hair loss, anxiety, and heart problems In a study conducted by Centers for Disease Control (CDC), roughly 1 in 3 patients (including both mild and severe cases) observed suffered from highly debilitating symptoms of COVID-19 several weeks after their diagnosis. Even more alarming, a University of Leicester investigation found that 7 in 10 patients hospitalized for COVID-19 didn't fully recover 5 months after discharge. These grim statistics point to a dire global health crisis, with enormous projected costs of management."Long COVID is very serious," noted World Health Organization (WHO) Director-General Tedros Adhanom Ghebreyesus. "To a significant number of people, this virus poses a range of serious long-term effects. The symptoms people have to endure are very debilitating, leading many to be unable to work and function properly." Long COVID issues may ultimately culminate in chronic disease, requiring sharply increased levels of medication, long-term hospitalization, and debilitating lifestyle changes that will likely lead to premature death.Extending the Impact of Novel Therapeutic ApproachGIOSTAR has played a central role in the fight against COVID-19. The US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) granted the firm FDA Approval Under Compassionate Use (Expanded Access Program) to treat COVID-19 patients – making GIOSTAR one of the first companies in the world to obtain this credential. Leveraging proprietary scientific protocols and techniques developed by Chairman and Co-Founder Dr. Anand Srivastava, GIOSTAR succeeded in treating several critically ill COVID patients using stem cells."The anti-inflammatory capabilities of stem cells make them an excellent therapeutic agent," explained Dr. Srivastava. "Further, their ability to differentiate into myriad cells helps to restore organ function, thereby enabling [patient] recovery from post COVID-19 syndrome."GIOSTAR is looking to build upon its success in addressing the acute phase of COVID-19. With the launch of GIOCOV, the company is now pursuing fully licensed status of stem cell treatment for COVID and Long COVID patients in the United States (US), United Kingdom (UK), and the European Union (EU). This goal will require completion of clinical trials to establish treatment protocols and secure full approval from FDA, Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency (MHRA), and European Medicines Agency (EMA) – the regulatory bodies for the US, UK, and EU respectively. Upon receiving this, GIOCOV seeks to gain acceptance from healthcare authorities, providers, and insurers alike for reimbursement of treatment costs."GIOCOV's aim is to provide cost effective treatment for all Long COVID sufferers worldwide," noted GIOSTAR CEO and Co-Founder Deven Patel. "This will show huge cost benefit against the cost of long-term medication and hospitalization and provide enhanced quality of life to patients all over the globe." Given the results of the afore-mentioned study, more than 100 million long-haulers (representing 70% of the over 150 million total COVID 19 cases) stand to achieve enormous economic and health-related benefits from this initiative.To realize these goals GIOSTAR - in collaboration with their advisors TAG Investment Bankers Ltd of London - intends for GIOCOV to raise funds to carry out the necessary trials through a listing on the London Stock Exchange (LSE), Nasdaq, and other stock exchanges. GIOSTAR also aims to secure funding from suitable grants.GIOSTAR is pleased to officially announce its pre-IPO fund raising round, the details of which are available at the TAG Investment Bankers Website: https://twex.ch/giocov/About GIOSTARGIOSTAR is the pioneer and established leader in the field of stem cell science and regenerative medicine.

North West Rubber SportFloor® Recycled Rubber Flooring Proven to “Eliminate Nearly 100% of Microbial Contamination After Cleaning,” According to Third-Party Independent Cleaning Study

May 4, 2021

ABBOTSFORD, BC, May 5, 2021 /PRNewswire/ -- North West Rubber has recently released the results of third-party testing which highlights the effectiveness of the SportFloor® Stamina line of recycled rubber performance flooring in helping to protect sports complex athletes, visitors, and staff from the risks of microbial contamination.  North West Rubber commissioned Westech Systems FM Inc. to conduct and report on a third-party independent cleaning audit with the goal of assessing how easy it was to clean and disinfect NWR SportFloor® recycled rubber flooring.  Continue Reading SportFloor - 99.5% Microbial Elimination SportFloor - 99.5% Microbial Elimination SportFloor - Excellence Counts As part of the testing protocol, Microbial contamination levels were measured through ATP (adenosine triphosphate) audits before cleaning and after cleaning.  The study concluded that cleaning and disinfecting of the SportFloor® recycled flooring resulted in nearly a 100% elimination of the microbial contamination (99.5%). Paul Flinton, NWR VP Marketing, comments: "It is well understood that in commercial facilities, bacteria left on surfaces can become a point of cross contamination between athletes and staff on site which can lead to sickness and infections if not thoroughly cleaned. The exceptional cleaning efficacy of our SportFloor® Stamina product is rooted in NWR's vulcanization technology." Vulcanization involves the moulding of rubber crumb under high heat and pressure to form strong cross-links that create a resilient and non-porous antibacterial rubber surface. "Vulcanization is a technology that NWR has been practicing and perfecting for over 50 years since our inception in 1968," adds Flinton. The third-party independent cleaning study concludes: "NWR's Stamina rubber flooring is vulcanized, resulting in a smooth and non-porous surface finish that repels moisture and thereby restricts microbial growth."  Flinton adds: "We have routinely conducted laboratory testing of moisture absorption for current and new products as a proxy for microbial contamination. The addition to our testing protocols of this third-party independent cleaning study reinforces further our own existing data sets around the efficacy of SportFloor® Stamina in preventing and eliminating microbial contamination." "We expect the trend towards specifying low maintenance sports flooring with compelling hygienic benefits such as those offered by North West Rubber SportFloor® will continue for the foreseeable future." North West Rubber Ltd. is a leading manufacturer and distributor of LEED-certified recycled rubber solutions in North America. Since 1968, North West Rubber (NWR) has been providing specialty rubber flooring products to retail, commercial, and industrial customers around the world for a variety of applications, including recreational, playground, agricultural, traffic safety, trailers, and truck bed mats. For more than 50 years, NWR has partnered with governments, industry stewardship groups, and other environmentally conscious organizations across North America to reduce the number of scrap tires that are landfilled or incinerated, saving well over 115 million scrap tires to date. The company is headquartered in Abbotsford, British Columbia and has manufacturing locations in Abbotsford, British Columbia; Brantford, Ontario; Houston, Texas; and Beijing China. The SportFloor® brand is a premium rubber flooring line for professional and recreational athletic facilities. Manufactured from recycled and virgin rubber, SportFloor® is specifically designed to withstand the most demanding surface needs. SportFloor® offers customization capabilities to fulfill the branding and design requirements for a variety of applications. SportFloor® has been installed in many professional sports stadiums, arenas, and recreational facilities across North America.For more information, please visit www.northwestrubber.com or contact Jen Brandsma at 308918@email4pr.com.Contact: Jen Brandsma Phone: 604.859.2002 Email: 308918@email4pr.com SOURCE North West Rubber
