Maricanns 70M financing deal falls through amid OSC investigationMaricanns 70M financing deal falls through amid OSC investigation
October 13, 2019October 13, 2019
TORONTO – Medical cannabis company Maricann Group Inc. says a $70 million financing deal announced last month has fallen through after the companies behind it terminated an underwriting agreement.The decision by Eight Capital, Canaccord Genuity Corp., GMP Securities L.P., Industrial Alliance Securities Inc. and Clarus Securities Inc. follows the resignation Wednesday of Maricann’s chairman Neil Tabatznik and Raymond Stone, a board director.It also comes as the Ontario Securities Commission reviews the timing and reporting of certain trades of shares owned or controlled by and Tabatznik and Eric Silver.It added that the regulator has also told the company on Feb. 8 that Maricann chief executive Ben Ward is the subject of an investigation into his activities while he was CEO of Canadian Cannabis Corp., a wholly unrelated company.Maricann said earlier this week that it had been advised orally by the underwriters that they were not prepared to proceed and said Thursday that no reason was given for terminating the agreement.“We are disappointed to have received the notice of termination and are considering our options for further action,” said interim chairman Paul Pathak.CEO Benjamin Ward added that “it’s business as usual” at the company and is “moving full speed ahead in all operational areas.”Maricann said Wednesday that OSC staff have said they are unable to provide any further information about the review. An OSC spokeswoman said the regulator was not in a position to comment further.According to insider trading records, Tabatznik on Jan. 23 sold 412,000 shares he indirectly owned through Copper Lake Investments Inc. at roughly $4.16 each or a total of $1.714 million. A day later, Tabatznik sold 438,000 shares at roughly $4.26 each, or a total $1.864 million. And on Jan. 25, he sold another 5,000 shares for $4.25 each, or $21,250.Stone also sold shares he indirectly owned, through either Felicity Stone or R & FS Investments Inc., in January. On Jan. 22, records show he sold 915,837 shares for roughly $4.22 each or $3.87 million. A day later, he sold 104,421 shares at $4.20 each, and another 128,000 for $4.22 each, or a total of $978,728.Maricann, which has production facilities in both Langton, Ont. and Dresden, Germany, announced a proposed acquisition on Jan. 24 of all outstanding shares of Haxxon AG, a cultivator of female hemp cannabis flowers based in Regensdorf, Switzerland. The deal, which was targeted to close on March 30, would allow Maricann to produce cannabis flowers in Switzerland that would then be manufactured into products such as cannabis vape cartridges, the company said at the time.It has also been ramping up production capacity at home, as Canada moves to legalize marijuana for recreational use later this year, currently expanding its cultivation and support facilities in Canada to 87,515 square metres. When complete, Maricann’s facility is expected to produce 95,000 kilograms of dry cannabis flower per year, the company says.Company stock has fallen as much as 30 per cent on the Canadian Securities Exchange on Wednesday to $1.70 per share from Tuesday’s closing price of $2.49. The stock rose just over five per cent Thursday to close at $2.07.Companies in this story: (CSE:MARI)

Germany Threatens To Stop Aid to Morocco Over Refused RefugeesGermany Threatens To Stop Aid to Morocco Over Refused Refugees
October 12, 2019October 12, 2019
Rabat – The German government has threatened to suspend development aid to Morocco if it does not take back its nationals whose refugee status was rejected.German Chancellor Angela Merkel is reconsidering her country’s foreign aid to those countries that do not cooperate in taking back their citizens who requested asylum in Germany and whose applications were denied.North African countries, mainly Morocco and Algeria, are the first ones that Merkel’s government is forcing to retrieve their nationals who entered Germany alongside Syrian refugees, according to Arabic daily Akhbar Al Ayoum in its Tuesday issue. “These countries receive economic aid from Germany, but in turn refuse to cooperate on this issue. This is unacceptable,” German Vice Chancellor Sigmar Gabriel said regarding Morocco and Algeria.According to the same source, Germany’s move to threaten to stop its aid comes after the violence that shook the country in the last few months, especially on New Year’s Eve, where Moroccan refugees were allegedly involved in sexual attacks and robberies.Official statistics claim that nearly 40 percent of Moroccans nationals who have registered as asylum seekers in Germany have reportedly committed criminal acts in recent months, the daily noted.Angela Merkel is being pressured to shut down borders five months after Germany opened its doors to Syrian refugees.According to Reuters, over 100 conservative lawmakers from political parties in Germany sent a letter to Merkel urging her to change in her ‘open-border’ policy.“We are facing excessive demands on our country. We believe a change is urgently needed in current migration practice … by a return to the strict use of existing law,” the letter stated.The German government will reportedly pass a legislation to expel Moroccan and Algerian immigrants, and place them in detention centers pending deportation, the Arabic daily said.Following a meeting between Chancellor Merkel and the Governor of Bavaria, Horst Seehofer, it was decided to classify Morocco and Algeria as “safe countries” whose nationals do not qualify for refugee status.The German leader has received opposition from her own cabinet members, regarding her refugee policy.On Monday, Germany’s Transport Minister called on Merkel to close Germany’s borders to stem the influx of immigrants.“It is not on if Mrs Merkel lets herself be cheered for inviting over one million refugees … while her CDU bows out of responsibility for long-term integration,” Vice Chancellor Gabriel said this week criticizing his boss, according to Reuters.

An Interpol warrant had been issued for Weeratunga’s arrest over ongoing investigations into the controversial MiG aircraft deal.The FCID later began discussions with the Dubai authorities with regard to handing the ex-diplomat over to the Sri Lankan authorities. The authorities in Dubai are refusing to handover Sri Lanka’s former Ambassador to Russia Udayanga Weeratunga who was arrested last month.Sources told The Sunday Leader that diplomatic efforts are underway to secure Weeratunga’s transfer to Sri Lanka but the efforts have so far failed. Earlier the Dubai police detained Weeratunga on 4th February at the Dubai International Airport or questioning while he was in transit to travel to the United States.However, a special team comprising officers from the FCID, Criminal Investigation Division (CID), Foreign Ministry, Attorney Generals’ Department and Department of Immigration and Emigration sent to Dubai to extradite the fugitive ex-diplomat based on a warrant obtained from the Colombo Fort Magistrate had to return empty-handed since he had been released by the Dubai police.When contacted by The Sunday Leader, the Minister of Law and Order Ranjith Madduma Bandara said that a team is preparing to travel to Dubai to have more talks with the authorities to bring back Weeratunga to Sri Lanka. Weeratunga was detained in Abu Dhabi following his arrest in Dubai late last month. The authorities in Dubai had arrested Weeratunga based on investigations and submissions made by the Police Financial Crimes Investigations Division (FCID).
Women take legal action over breast implant cancer riskWomen take legal action over breast implant cancer risk

Want the best of The Telegraph direct to your email and WhatsApp? Sign up to our free twice-daily Front Page newsletter and new audio briefings. Linzy Bromfield, 50, is one of the women who is taking legal action. She paid privately for breast augmentation in 2005 after having two children, but 13 years later, found one breast had become so swollen she was unable to wear her bra.She had fluid drained from the breast in an NHS hospital and was later diagnosed with implant-associated lymphoma. She had both of her implants removed and has been free of disease since.Other women have needed further treatment, including chemotherapy. Mr Nigel Mercer, chairman of an advisory group of surgeons monitoring cases of the cancer for the MHRA, said women were not being given enough information about the potential risks of implants, and warned that they were not necessarily for life.The plastic surgeon told the BBC: “There are unknowns with any implant, but it does mean we are using our entire population as human guinea pigs, almost.”Scientists believe the disease could be a reaction to the textured surface of the implant or a bacterial infection. Manufacturer Allergan said patient safety was a priority and it would support informative labelling “to promote and advance the safest use of breast implant products”.”We continue to invest in and support work to further understanding and increasing awareness of BIA-ALCL,” the company said. Twenty women in the UK are taking legal action after developing cancer linked to their breast implants.Surgeons said victims had been treated almost as “human guinea pigs” without being informed about the possible risks they might face.The Medicines and Healthcare products Regulatory Agency, which regulates medical devices in the UK, is currently collecting data on women affected by breast implant associated-anaplastic large cell lymphoma (BIA-ALCL).The rare type of disease is a cancer of the immune system.The risk is estimated to effect one in every 24,000 implants sold. More than 50 women have been diagnosed with the condition in the UK, and hundreds more worldwide.One manufacturer, Allergan, has issued a worldwide recall of some textured implants, which have been linked to most cases of breast implant-associated lymphoma.

254M In Capital Budget For Hiland Mountain Womens Mental Health Unit254M In Capital Budget For Hiland Mountain Womens Mental Health Unit
September 14, 2019September 14, 2019
According to a release from the governor’s office stated that this plan aims to reduce stresses on other resources for Alaska’s mentally ill. This unit will provide much needed acute psychiatric treatment beds for women – a population that is rapidly growing. 65% of the prisoner population in Alaska suffer from some form of mental illness. Often their involvement with the criminal justice system begins with low-level offenses like disorderly conduct, or trespassing. Facebook0TwitterEmailPrintFriendly分享Written within the capital budget signed earlier this week, the State of Alaska will spend $2.54 million to create a new women’s mental health unit at Hiland Mountain Correctional Center in Eagle River. Governor Dunleavy: “Support for the Highland Mountain Women’s Mental Health Unit, and more. Importantly, the bill also provides the necessary resources and funding to implement HB 49 – an across the board reform to our public safety statutes, that will give our law enforcement, judges and prosecutors the tools to hold criminals accountable.” The lack of sufficient community-based treatment options has resulted in the drastic increase in the incarceration of the people with mental illness. According to Brooks, the Department of Corrections is the largest mental health care provider in the state. Laura Brooks Director/Healthcare Administrator for the Department of Corrections: “People simply think ‘well these are criminals just lock them up’, and some of our people if it weren’t for that illness would not have committed those crimes. They get put in jail when medication or treatment are the much better answer, but a lot of times the illness prevents them from recognizing that they have an illness so they don’t seek treatment or they don’t take their medications and the cycle just continues.” The Alaska Department of Corrections is responsible for providing medical, behavioral health, dental, vision, and pharmaceutical services to individuals incarcerated in the state operated correctional facilities from the first moment they step into the facility.

New Delhi: The HRD Ministry has sent a list of premiere engineering institutes in the country to Kuwait authorities where thousands of Indian engineers, including IITians, are staring at possible job losses after the Gulf country decided to recognise degrees only if India’s NBA approved of the courses they studied. The Public Authority for Manpower, a government body in Kuwait, had last year issued a circular asking the labour department to not give work permits to expatriate engineers unless they got no-objection certificates from the Kuwait Engineers Society. Also Read – National Herald case: Officer bearers of Congress were cheats, Subramanian Swamy tells court Advertise With Us For India, engineers were to be issued no-objection certificates only if the course had been accredited by the National Board of Accreditation (NBA). The Ministry of Human Resource Development has since then been receiving representations from Indian engineers working in Kuwait regarding this. “A high-level Indian delegation had visited Kuwait to understand and resolve the issue and after discussion with the Kuwait authorities, it was decided to send them lists of ‘Non-NBA premier institute’ and ‘Institutes of National Importance’ which has been sent to the Indian Embassy in Kuwait for onward submission to Kuwait authorities,” a senior HRD Ministry official said. Also Read – Dehydrated elephant being given treatment Advertise With Us The NBA accredits engineering courses while the National Assessment and Accreditation Council (NAAC) accredits universities and general colleges. The decision by Kuwait authorities has also brought degrees by prestigious Indian Institutes of Technology (IITs) in the invalidation scanner. “The IITs, IISc and JU have never taken accreditation from the NBA for their engineering courses. Many of the National Institutes of Technology (NITs) are yet to take accreditation for their BTech courses,” the official explained. The NBA, earlier a wing of technical education regulator All India Council of Technical Education (AICTE), has been in existence since the 1990s but became an autonomous body in 2010. It has so far given accreditation to courses offered by 600 institutions among total 3,500 that teach technical courses.

Boy do I hate printers. They’re clunky yet fragile. They require screwing around with messy expensive ink. They get paper jams. Wirelessly syncing them up is a nightmare. The list goes on. Being able to print things on demand is super convenient, but actually owning and maintaining a printer constantly makes me question if it’s worth it.The HP Sprocket 2nd Edition won’t fully replace all your printer needs. But just giving you a fun and easy way to print photos on the go is already doing the lord’s work.AdChoices广告The HP Sprocket 2 looks more like the phone you pair it to than the printer it actually is. The small size makes it cute and easy to travel with, but should also give an idea of the size of the photos (2.3 by 3.4 inches) it can print. It also comes in a variety of sparkly metallic colors.You connect your phone, iOS or Android, to the Sprocket via Bluetooth and send pictures via an app. In the app you can also customize photos with text or stickers before printing them. The paper costs have gone down but image quality has gone up. The most nifty features of all though are the various augmented reality gimmicks.You can scan the printer itself to get a status update. That’s why its top is so sparkly, like a QR code constellation. However, you can also scan photos to watch little videos associated with them. Instead of using ink, the HP Sprocket heats up special paper in different patterns to reveal specific colors. This fascinating process can also embed AR information into the photos. A portable printer already feels cutting-edge but this is just from the future.For more on the HP Sprocket 2nd Edition check out the extensive review on our sister site PCMag.com.

May 23, 2012 Free Workshop | August 28: Get Better Engagement and Build Trust With Customers Now This hands-on workshop will give you the tools to authentically connect with an increasingly skeptical online audience. Opinions expressed by Entrepreneur contributors are their own. Doing business internationally isn’t just for the big enterprises anymore. Once-emerging markets such as India, China and Singapore now demand services that only smaller firms can provide. And globe-flattening technologies including Facebook, freelance marketplace Elance and PayPal mean even the smallest firms can seize a global opportunity.But those are far from the only technologies that can help a small company do big business overseas. From shipping to electronic payments to navigating confusing regulations, the following tools can help make doing business internationally easier.Shipping overseas? There’s an app for that.One of the biggest hurdles to doing business overseas is getting your products where they needs to go. Luckily, major shippers including UPS, FedEx and the U.S. Postal Service offer Web apps that track global shipments, estimate costs and check for compliance with country-specific rules, laws and tariffs.For instance, UPS offers a free international shipping tool called TradeAbility that shippers can use to estimate costs, look up duty fees and view international trade restrictions and other regulations. FedEx, meanwhile, arranges its services by the user’s experience in international shipping — from novice to expert — and includes a set of shipping tutorials. The USPS offers downloadable global shipping software for processing global shipments. Related: Headed to Asia for Business? Pack These Networking TipsMaking payments overseas, easily.Online financial transfer services can make and receive payments to vendors and most other parties overseas. For the casual, one-time vendor, consider starting with services from PayPal and American Express.Most vendors overseas accept PayPal, and it offers a full range of services in about 20 large countries, plus the ability to send and receive payments via PayPal essentially anywhere. PayPal charges a 3.9 percent transaction fee for international sales, plus another fixed fee based on the currency received.For more sophisticated exchanges, FX International Payments by American Express offers a convenient online portal for making payments, as well as the ability to manage and track favorable exchange rates. Enrollment in the program is free, but limited to customers with a U.S. business bank account.When transferring money overseas remember that currency rates can change dramatically and require more complicated accounting.Pay your employees no matter where they are.While you might consider hiring that rockstar software engineer who lives in another country, paying that person isn’t always so easy. Though services such as PayPal can be used for payroll, chances are they don’t meet regulations in some countries.Managing international payroll right requires juggling multiple currencies and compliance with diverse employment laws and regulations. Most firms that directly hire employees in other countries might find it necessary to outsource payroll management to a company specializing in the nuances of global payroll.Many of these services cater to bigger business, but companies such as Deerfield, Ill.-based Celergo and U.K.-based NorthgateArinso, a global HR firm, have payroll services in more than 100 nations and cater to smaller multinational firms. Pricing varies depending on the country and the number of employees being paid.Know how to do business in a complex world.In order to do business internationally, you’ll need to abide by the laws of your own country as well as those of other countries. One online resource is the U.S. Commercial Service, which offers country-specific trade statistics and market research. Also, the comprehensive primers at Export.gov cover several important topics, such as when a business needs an export license.It can also be wise to keep abreast of evolving international situations such as travel warnings and alerts, country-by-country, through the U.S. State Department’s travel website.Related: 10 Hot Export Markets for Small BusinessesTake the hassle out of business travel.Expedited clearance for certain “low-risk” travelers can be available through the U.S. federal government’s Trusted Traveler programs.Global Entry, a U.S. Customs and Border Protection program, is meant for frequent international travelers. There is no minimum number of trips necessary to apply. The signup process usually involves a trip to your local airport for a photo, identification and background check. There are separate programs for crossing the Canadian and Mexican borders, known respectively as NEXUS and SENTRI.International calling doesn’t have to cost a fortune.It’s not a secret that calling overseas can lead to massive phone bills. But look beyond services such as Skype and Google Voice in order to cut costs. Paid Web-based calling services can connect your business phone to an affordable international calling plan.Several options offer unlimited international calling, including McLean, Va.-based Lingo, which has flat-rate unlimited international calling plans to 45 countries starting at $23.95 a month. Similarly, the World plan by Holmdel, N.J.-based Vonage, starts at $9.99 per month for unlimited calling to all phones in 10 countries and landlines in 60 countries.Related: 5 Steps for Keeping Digital Data Safe When Traveling to China 5 min read Enroll Now for Free

Quick workouts for men Sponsored Stories 4 must play golf courses in Arizona Think Tank analyzes the second round of Democratic debates Top Stories Associated PressSTOCKHOLM (AP) – American officials are trying to convince a man who claims to be a wanted U.S. Air Force deserter to turn himself in after 28 years on the run, his Swedish lawyer said Friday.Last month, a man alleging to be 49-year-old David Hemler from Cleona, Pennsylvania, contacted Stockholm-based lawyer Emma Persson, saying he missed his family and wanted to reveal his true identity after living in Sweden under a false name for nearly three decades. New high school in Mesa lets students pick career paths More Valley freeways to be closed this weekend for improvements Meghan McCain to release audiobook on conservatism, family For years, the former airman has been listed as “a security issue” on the Air Force most wanted list of fugitives.The man, who went public with his story two weeks ago, said he had deserted his post at an American base in Augsburg in southwestern Germany in 1984 for ideological reasons. He hitchhiked to Sweden where he has worked and raised a family _ all under an alias. Not even his wife or three children had been aware of his real identity, he claimed, but said he had chosen to come forward because he missed his American family and wanted to see his aging parents again.Persson, who won’t disclose her client’s Swedish identity for confidentiality reasons, said three American officials _ two from the U.S. Air Force European headquarters in Germany and a member of the American Embassy in Stockholm _ met her on Thursday in Stockholm to discuss the case and verify his identity.“They want to perform DNA tests and check his fingerprints,” she said, adding that they had also requested he voluntarily return to his homeland to stand trial if he proves to be the missing airman. “He won’t be able to avoid punishment in that case.”However, Persson said that under Swedish law, people cannot be extradited to the United States if they are suspected of political or military crimes and that her client was under no obligation to undergo identity tests unless he agrees to do so. Comments Share Persson said the American officials had been in contact with her client by email but had not yet met him.In an interview published by Swedish daily Dagens Nyheter on Friday, the man said he has no objections to participating in the requested identity tests but that he has no plans to return to America soon.“I won’t return until I have guarantees of what a maximum sentence could be. For the sake of my wife, my children and my parents I can’t risk going to prison for a long time,” he was quoted as saying.He did not immediately reply to interview requests made by The Associated Press.When he came forward with his story, the man said he hoped American authorities would understand the hardship he had suffered by having to conceal his true identity for such a long time and that they would consider it as sufficient punishment.(Copyright 2012 The Associated Press.
