Yesterday at the Fifth World Internet Conference (WIC), held today in Wuzhen, Zhejiang, under the theme of “Creating a Digital World for Mutual Trust and Collective Governance — Towards a Community with a Shared Future in Cyberspace,” Huawei’s Ascend 310 chip stood out among more than 400 technology achievements to win the conference’s World Leading Scientific and Technological Achievement award. This honor recognizes artificial intelligence (AI) system-on-chips (SoC) as having the industry’s strongest compute capabilities for edge computing scenarios, with support from the unified and scalable Da Vinci architecture. This marks the third consecutive year Huawei has received this award and the opportunity to showcase its innovation during the conference. Yan Lida, Director of the Board at Huawei and President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, presented the achievement to the guests at the conference.
Yan Lida, Director of the Board at Huawei and President of Huawei Enterprise Business Group, presented the Ascend 310 to the guests at the conference
Yan Lida said: “Huawei’s new Ascend series of AI chips is the core component of Huawei’s AI solution and provides the key support. Huawei’s AI strategy is to invest in basic research and talent development; build a full-stack, all-scenario AI portfolio; and foster an open global ecosystem. Every year, Huawei invests 10 to 15 percent of our sales revenue in R&D, and this year our R&D investment will exceed CNY100 billion. Ascend 310 is the first chip in the Ascend series, which opens a new era of AI. Our advantage is not only to be able to do AI, but also to achieve synergy between AI and cloud, IoT, video, edge computing, big data and other technologies, to form an open “platform” that supports digital transformation for all industries. AI will be the latest technology Huawei makes available to customers and partners on the platform. We will work hard to make sure AI is no longer a technology only open to ones who have high qualification skills. Over the next three years, our aim is to work with one million AI developers to drive innovations in line with Huawei’s commitment to provide affordable, effective, and reliable AI, bringing intelligence across every enterprise and industry to build a fully connected, intelligent world.”
On October 10, 2018, Huawei officially released a full-stack all-scenario AI solution. ‘Full-stack’ means the solution provides powerful and cost-effective computing power, as well as low-barrier application development platforms that make AI data modeling, model training, and application development simpler, more agile, and more efficient. As an ‘all-scenario’ solution, it is able to drive pervasive intelligence across various device, edge, and cloud scenarios.
Ascend 310 is the industry’s most powerful AI SoC chip for edge computing scenarios. Currently, the most typical edge computing scenarios are security and protection, autonomous driving, and smart manufacturing. However, every edge computing scenario imposes severe constraints on space, energy consumption and computing power. Whether it’s on a fast-moving car or on a high-speed production line, a complex scientific study or a daily educational activity, Ascend 310 supports every industry with an cost-efficient and powerful computing energy. One Ascend 310 chip can achieve up to 16TOPS on-site calculations, supporting the simultaneous identification of 200 different objects including people, cars, obstacles and traffic signs; it can process thousands of pictures in one second. In October this year, Huawei and Audi demonstrated the chipset in L4 automatic driving. The vehicle was equipped with Huawei’s Mobile Data Center (MDC) vehicle-mounted computing unit and it was estimated that Huawei’s Ascend 310 chipset consumed only 200 watts of power in L4 automatic driving.
The other unique advantage of Ascend series is that it adopts Huawei’s innovative unified and extensible Da Vinci architecture, which achieves full coverage — from the ultimate low energy consumption scenario to high computing power scenario — something not yet seen in any other architecture on the market. The Da Vinci architecture is able to facilitate AI application deployment, migration, and collaboration in different scenarios at the same time, which vastly improves software development efficiency, and accelerates AI application in various industries.
Huawei advocates ‘AI for the benefit of all,’ and aims to work with customers, industry partners, and academic institutions to achieve win-win outcomes and enable omnipresent AI. Our vision and mission is to bring digital to every person, home and organization for a fully connected, intelligent world. More information about Huawei’s AI strategies and full-stack all-scenario AI solutions is available at https://www.huawei.com/en/press-events/news/2018/10/huawei-hc-2018-eric-xu-ai.

All set to kickstart the Singapore Blockchain Week on 26th and 27th November, UCIM has a number of unique sub-events to keep its 800+ global audience engaged. The security of crypto exchanges is often a bone of contention, and Hack-X will challenge and evaluate the same.
The event will welcome some of the most competent ethical hackers, security companies as well as developers to participate in Hack-X. These participants will then be given a task to hack into the listed exchanges and those who successfully deliver the task in the given time will then be rewarded with a bounty.
“Our aim is for exchanges to glance into their security framework, algorithms, protocols and checks & balances at an early stage. It is, of course, better to be hacked by a developer during a challenge than witness a million dollar breach later on,” said Rohan Sharma, Head at UCIM. “We look forward to hosting all the top exchanges,” he further added.
On one hand, Hack-X will mark a checkpoint for exchanges that prove to be safe and tamper-proof. On the other hand, it will be an exciting opportunity for hackers and developers from across the world to unite for a common mission. Hack-X envisions to decode the “security, privacy, and transparency” on which these exchanges thrive.
UCIM is an independent conference that will host high-impact investors, thought leaders, top speakers, and media members from around the world. It aims to “catalyze decentralization in its true essence.”
Like Hack-X, there are several other sub-events under UCIM that offer a platform to network and engage beyond the realms of a conventional conference. These include a pitching platform (Pitch-a-thon), an awards segment (Golden Block Awards), a partner meet networking opportunity (Partner Connect), and a trading competition (UCIM Trading Challenge).

AFull Co. Ltd. has proudly announced that it has appointed Dr. Kim Sung-hak as Vice Chairman. This is indeed a bold step taken by the company and on Monday, October 29th, Dr. Kim Sung-hak was officially appointed as the vice chairman of the AFull Co., Ltd. Moreover, he has an extraordinary as well as diverse professional career and has been serving as the private physician of the Saudi Royal Family for 16 years.
Appointment of Dr. Kimg Sung-hak as its new Vice Chairman of AFull
“There is a lot of potential in Hyunseong Vital and AFull, both companies seem to have a long way to go yet, but the possibility that it has in its uniqueness and possibilities blew my mind.” Said Dr. Kim Sung-hak, while talking about the companies. “Together with the CEO, I will contribute to the distribution revolution and create jobs in the Korean network industry in the upcoming future.” He added.
The news of Dr. Kim Sung-hak’s appointment has created a major buzz in the Korean market. This is because in the network marketing market, an executive who has been at the forefront of business in a large company has never moved to a much smaller company. Dr. Kim Sung-Hak, however, moved from a 1 billion USD revenue company, from his position as the Head of Product Strategy, to a smaller company with sales of 20 million USD as Vice Chairman.
Hyunsung Vital CEO, Shin Ji-yoon
Hyunsung Vital first rose to attention in the Korean health and beauty market when it started producing health products wholly with natural ingredients. With Hyunsung Vital’s CEO Shin Ji-yoon aggressively investing in research and development and restructuring the company so that it could be self sustainable from production to distribution and sales, the company rose to interest in the Korean market entailing to a successful IPO in KOSDAQ.
In addition, Dr. Kim Sung-hak has changed the entire paradigm of Mount Sinai by exploring the pilgrimage of the Holy Land in the Christian world. He is also a bestselling author for more than a decade for his book Thorn Bush, which was also cinematically adapted as a film. Furthermore, he has been a pioneer in Oriental Medicine to the King of Saudi Arabia and the Royal Family.
AFull Vice Chairman, Kim Sung-hak
With his unique accomplishments in the network industry, Dr. Kim Sung-hak, is now gearing up for major upcoming events on his new position. He will first go to India with CEO, Shin Ji-yoon, and his company officials by invitation of the Minister of Health and Social Affairs of India from November 16 to November 20. Several other events are also lined up where delegations and officials from many countries including China and Saudi Arabia will also participate. Furthermore, his appointment will also impact positively on the share price of Hyun Sung Vital Co., Ltd., which share financial statement with AFull.
Her business is now registered in the UK as Little Coffee Company. Her mission to help farmers has taken her across Africa where she visits farms and plans to make strides.
“Small-holder farmers have difficulty accessing funding, and getting the pay they deserve for their crop. Up to 50 per cent of crop value vanishes between picking and point of sale,” Le Franc said.
“Little Coffee Company plans to use technology that will change the balance of power across industries. It not only allows buyers direct access to farmers but offers complete transparency from the farmer to end-consumer. This data is not only beneficial for buyers but helps to increase the income of farmers and access to mobile finance,” she explained.
Since winning the opportunity to establish her coffee business in the United Kingdom, Le Franc recently received news that her contract would be renewed with the Launch Lab programme at City University in London which offers mentorship and support, as well as office space. She has also received support from the business community such as PWC’s Social Enterprise Club.
The award-winning entrepreneur has received notable awards such as: the Inspiring Innovator Award awarded by a UK investment bank, The City University of London Green Spark Award, and has recently been appointed trustee to the Global Board of Common Purpose which assists emerging leaders with skills to cross boundaries.
“Winning these awards has not only given my business credibility but also helps to build my network with and accelerate our goals for the year. I have worked hard to really test my business model and winning these awards from such prestigious companies will enable us to offer the proper funding to help farmers.”
Little Coffee Company’s main goal is to place emphasis on a digitised monetised and transparent programme which will help smallholder farmers.
“By having a transparent supply chain model, this not only highlights the farmers for the work they do, but also gives them accessibility to direct trade, so they are able to get the price they deserve.”
As Little Coffee Company assists farmers with its technological approach, Le Franc further explained, “This digi-tech approach provides a platform that will connect everyone in agriculture by providing efficiency, and trust to farmers.”
Digitising transactions for farmers reduces the costs of dealing with cash which has risks associated such as theft by transporting cash and assist farmers with saving transportation costs.
Notwithstanding Little Coffee’s growing network locally and internationally, Le Franc’s recent collaboration with farmers in Cameroon is an important step for her business globally.
“As a small organic producer in Cameroon working in collaboration with the Little Coffee Company will help to improve my processes and selling my coffee at a fair price via a fair-trade channel so that I can secure a better price to all small producers in Cameroon,” shared Chief Daniel Kemdeng.
As Le Franc expands her work with other countries interested in the coffee trade, she is now in dialogue with one of the biggest mobile phone providers in Zimbabwe which will assist with direct transactions to alleviate the hassle of the delays in payments and other setbacks to small farmers. She will also be working with the Geovation Hub which is a digital data lab, to help with her location data from farmers.
As Le Franc continues to be a trailblazer in the legal field and in business, she has a few words of encouragement to young entrepreneurs.
“My advice to all entrepreneurs would be to do what you are passionate about. It took me years of hard work within the coffee industry to get to where I am today. It’s rewarding when I get closer to my goals so I keep pushing forward.”

BLVCK Corp., the parent of BLVCK DIVMOND, has recently approved and launched what is looking to completely change the corporate marketing world with the introduction of the first of its kind ad campaign that seeks to showcase the women’s strengths with a major focus on feminism. The team at BLVCK DIVMOND has been designing this new marketing campaign during the fall of 2018 with the aim of drawing in some attention. The primary focus is on women’s strengths through a complicated year. This campaign and the ones to follow are a new social experiment for the Corporation and will signal the beginning of a new era in the world of marketing.
“We’re really excited as an organization to focus on something like feminism. I think showing the beauty within women who want to be something other than just a princess is exactly the positive progressive approach we need right now to end the year. Instead of dividing everyone based on looks, I want to show the world that there are multiple definitions of what a feminist is. As a designer, I am very excited to take this project on and I think our first print went very well,” – President Grant Michael Leingang
The BLVCK Corporation plans to release a wide range of prints relating to the significant differences in the strengths inherent in women. The aim of the campaign is to show the world all the positive aspects of women with the hope of reflecting a positive demeanor on the different female styles, types, and attitudes. The initial scope of the project was to capture the attention of the audience and reflect a beautiful positive message.
As part of the uniqueness of the campaign, the digital solutions giant used successful women across several industries, with the first model choice being “Curaline Grace,” an upcoming Instagram Model with more than 400,000 followers. Curaline Grace currently has 415.6k Followers, 309 Following, 1,766 Posts on Instagram. The graphics design for the project was handled by Grant Leingang with Neil Autry doing the photography.
The studies during the development of the design led to amazing discoveries which included the ad campaign image reflecting different outlooks on each individual based on their upbringing and or dominant culture that they collaborate with. The following words have been linked with this image and design from the case study:
What we discovered:
Free Thinker, Classy, Real, Expressive, Diverse, Rebel, Adventurous, Strong, Feminist, Alternative, Beautiful, Confident, Loyal, Motherly, Genuine, Soul, Vintage, Brave, Luxurious, Controversial, Princess, Gentle, Fashionable, Sophisticated.
The goal is to reflect the beauty that resides within strong women in the United States and across the globe that have been able to find the beauty within themselves and strive against all odds to become successful in life.
The corporation plans to roll out at least 3 to 4 different prints before March 2019. Within that time, designs for posters and physical space are being developed and A-B tested.
The world can anticipate more development and mockups of future marketing plans from ‘The BLVCK Corporation’.
Thermobalancing therapy and Dr Allen’s Device for men with enlarged prostate is effective as it treats the cause of these common disorder. It should be noted that 1 in 3 men over the age of 50 have urinary symptoms because enlarged prostate presses the bladder.
Lower urinary tract symptoms (LUTS) in men, which are caused by enlarged prostate or benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH), include frequent or urgent needs to urinate or to wake at night one or more times to urinate, weak urine flow, etc. These symptoms are so annoying that men, despite the fact that drugs and operations have side effects, are ready to get rid of them.
A new scientific article: “In the guidelines for physicians and urologists “watchful waiting” for benign prostatic hyperplasia (BPH) should be replaced with Thermobalancing therapy that treats prostate effectively, cost-effectively and safely” states that by treating and reversing prostate enlargement well, Dr Allen’s device should replace watchful waiting for men with LUTS/BPH. (https://biomedres.us/pdfs/BJSTR.MS.ID.001968.pdf)
“Watchful waiting” was implemented to men with LUTS/BPH to avoid severe side effects from standard BPH drugs and surgeries. For instance, Proscar (finasteride) or Avodart (dutsteride) may develop serious side effects, such as impotence, diabetes and even heart attack.
Risks from surgical interventions may include: infection, dry orgasm; erectile dysfunction; heavy bleeding; difficulty holding urine; low sodium in the blood and need for re-treatment.
Dr Allen’s device treats a prostate gland by tackling the cause of enlarged prostate, and therefore is able to reduce the size of enlarged prostate. A clinical study on Thermobalancing therapy in 124 men with BPH confirmed that Dr. Allen’s Device as mono-therapy stops and even reverses prostate enlargement. You can read the details in The Aging Male, a leading medical journal dedicated to health of older men at: https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/27960590.
“Watchful waiting should be changed to Thermobalancing therapy and used when an enlarged prostate has been diagnosed,” comments Dr Allen. “This will help men to stop prostate enlargement and relieve urination symptoms, avoiding risky BPH medications and surgeries.”
Fine Treatment delivers the innovative device for prostate treatment, which is a class I medical device, to anyone’s home for a week worldwide, http://finetreatment.com.

On November 2nd, 2018, Pakistani Prime Minster Imran Khan headed to China for a meeting with top Chinese leadership. Besides concessional loans for Pakistan, both sides took stock of issues ranging from “Make in Pakistan” to Naya Pakistan Housing Project and Islamabad’s space program that aims to dispatch its first astronaut into space by 2022. Imran Khan is also likely to request Chinese assistance for his ambitious poverty alleviation program.
There are few loose ends with regards to CPEC that both sides will work to tie up. The PTI government intends to convince the Chinese side to priorities hydropower projects instead of coalfired energy projects, include the western route project (Dera Ismail Khan-Yarik-Zhob road) in CPEC and most significantly revise the financing model of the $9 billion ML1 project on Build-Operate-Transfer basis. Previously, the multi-billion project under CPEC was to build on the Engineering-Procurement-Construction (EPC) model that shifts the entire financing risks to the federal government.
None of these issues is insurmountable. Beijing has already indicated that the new government’s demands are within the cooperation scope of the B&R initiative and China is willing to adjust the CPEC projects based on Pakistan’s needs. Laying to rest Malaysia-like speculations, Chinese Foreign Ministry spokesperson stated that China will make the PM’s visit a “complete success”. By assuaging Pakistan of her economic crises in a timely manner, and addressing her concerns on the mega project, Beijing stands to strengthen its image of a “savior and an iron-friend” in Pakistani public opinion.
There will certainly be no shortage of ardor when the leaders from both sides meet. One can also expect the sort of romantic sloganeering such as “higher than mountains, deeper than oceans, sweeter than honey and stronger than steel” that has become the hallmark of the bilateral relations. Behind this enthusiasm, however, looms a growing threat, which many in Pakistani and Chinese policy-making circles continue to overlook. Reports on Beijing’s purported forced re-education programs for Muslims of Xinjiang are depriving China of her hard-earned public goodwill in the country, where there are frequent displays of solidarity with Muslims suffering elsewhere in the world. The government’s inaction on such issues is often manipulated by terrorist organizations to expand their recruitment base among a large pocket of Pakistani population, which considers its religious obligation to respond to the sufferings of Muslims anywhere in the world. Xinjiang could have similar radicalizing impact on Pakistani population as other international issues such as Palestine, Kashmir, Afghanistan, Iraq and Chechnya have always had.
Although, mainstream Urdu media often avoids adverse reporting on China, some segments of the country’s English press have been vocally opposing Chinese counter-terrorism approach as “heavy-handed”. Moreover, with the advent of social media Pakistani public is also exposed to Western media campaign criticizing China for forcefully re-educating millions of Muslims in thousands of schools established during recent years across Uighur Autonomous Region. Such a systematic media campaign can potentially revive pan-Islamism in Pakistan and galvanize public support for the Muslim minority chafing under Chinese policies. There is also a genuine fear that militant groups may manipulate anti-China mantra to justify targeting CPEC-related projects in the future.
What needs to be done to avoid such a scenario. Firstly, Beijing needs to come openly about her counter-terrorism policies in Xinjiang. There are, no doubt, number of reasons to be fully on guard. Multiple factors had contributed in making Uighur area a hotbed of extremism. Beijing’s deliberate use of this region as a recruiting and training ground for anti-Soviet Jihad during the Cold War, Soviet Union’s attempts to use Uighurs to split China, Xinjiang’s close geographic proximity to Afghanistan, and years of neglect by the central government made Xinjiang as vulnerable to extremism as Pakistan’s tribal frontiers. To avert minutest possibility of Xinjiang turning into “China’s Syria or Libya”, the Chinese authorities adopted a strategy that reflects a fine combination of hard and soft CT measures. As far the hard measures are concerned, Chen Quanguo, the party secretary of Xinjiang and the man known as the architect of Beijing’s Xinjiang Strategy, established thousands of centers to for “de-extremification” of vulnerable population through education in law, Marxism and vocational training. His approach is often termed “heavy-handed” by the international observers. But the official narrative rebuts such claims by citing a sharp decline in acts of terrorism since he took charge in August 2016.
Initially, Chinese authorities refused to admit the existence of such facilities and defended their CT policies through a series of op-eds in number of Chinese news outlets. However, few weeks ago, Shohrat Zakir, chairman of the Government of Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region, acknowledged the “vocational education and training program” to fight “three evil forces of extremism, terrorism and separatism”. Similarly, last week a group of reporters affiliated with “Global Times”, the mouthpiece of Communist Party of China was taken to these facilities. The tabloid reported that “trainees receive free vocational training to improve their command over the country’s common language, national laws and regulations and vocational skills, among others.” The Western media saw these reports as Chinese cover-up and damage control attempts to avoid further embarrassment ahead of UN review on November 6, 2018.
As the West and China lock horns on the issue of Xinjiang, Pakistani government may come under increased pressure to adopt a stance that does not only appease the religiously inclined domestic constituency but also safeguards its relations with China. Shielding public from “anti-China narrative” is certainly not going to work. With a growing chorus between policy makers, media houses and academia of the two countries, there is a need for a frank exchange of views on the issue of Xinjiang, which according to Chinese narrative can serve as a case study on countering extremism through development and re-education.
As Pakistani public is increasingly exposed to diverse views on China, CPEC and Xinjiang through traditional and social media, it’s going to take a lot more than good intentions to sustain a friendship that is “higher than mountains, deeper than oceans, sweeter than honey and stronger than steel”.
Mister Kitchenware, a trusted kitchenware company, is thrilled to announce the launch of their new bamboo steamers in the USA. This comes with a set of chopsticks, a sauce dish and 10 liners. Bamboo steamers originated in China thousands of years ago and as a result are often associated exclusively with Chinese cooking. However, the bamboo steamer is more than just a vessel to prepare dim sum. The steamer’s construction makes it a great tool for cooking fish, vegetables and meat. Bamboo steamers are round containers with an open-weave bottom and a domed lid. The open-weave construction allows steam through, while the domed lid traps and circulates the steam. This results in a delicate cooking technique that locks in flavor while keeping food moist and tender. For health purposes, steaming is ideal. Able to cook the food thoroughly and easily without using any sort of fat, oils, or butter, food retains its healthy properties and appears fresh and vibrant. You’ll likely be able to rediscover natural flavors inherent in the food that were otherwise lost or overpowered by other cooking methods and fats. Perfect for fat-free diets, you can steam a cornucopia of low-calorie foods such as fish, vegetables, shellfish, meats, and much more.
“If you’re into healthy cooking that does not take hours of prepping and cooking time, these circular, multi-tiered cooking utensils are the thing for you. Cooking with a bamboo steamer allows your food to retain vital nutrients, create authentic dishes, and cuts down on cooking times due to the high temperature of steam,” said John Steger company spokesman. “Our company is very proud to advocate healthy eating and hassle-free meal prep during a time that junk food and fast food are currently prevailing. Eating healthy doesn’t have to be convoluted. It’s just a way of balancing the food you eat to keep your body strong, energized, and well nourished. When you eat well, you are taking good care of your body.”
Not only is using a bamboo steamer to cook your food good for you, it is also good for the environment. Bamboo is frequently proclaimed as the world’s most renewable material: it’s naturally pest-resistant, grows incredibly fast and can actually help rebuild eroded soil. It takes just three or four years to go from seed to harvest and because the root network is so big, you don’t even need to replant – it just shoots right back up again.
Mister Kitchenware Bamboo Steamers that come with a set of chopsticks, a sauce dish and ten liners are currently on sale at Amazon. Just key in the promo code “TENOFF2D” and enjoy 10% off for the next 10 days.

About Grove Menus
Founded by Diane Fager, RD and Richard Oldham, Grove Menus is a privately held company in Kansas City, Missouri that provides dietitian approved menus and kitchen management software to the senior living industry. The company was founded in 2009 with the goal of bringing greater flexibility and better options for residents in assisted living, group homes, skilled nursing and independent care facilities.
Some High Street lenders will consider a lease with anything less than 70 years remaining too short to lend against whilst many more will insist on a minimum 50 year term before consenting to a loan. In addition, they generally also require the lease to be extended at the point of completion.
Despite the reluctance of High Street lenders to offer Short Lease loans they can be a cost-effective way to buy in desirable locations, generate excellent capital growth and attractive rents. Fortunately, there are a small number of specialist bridging lenders that are prepared to take a much more flexible approach, advancing loans against a variety of leasehold properties with 10 or even less years remaining on the lease.
Furthermore, bridging lenders won’t seek to overcomplicate matters for existing leaseholders giving them finance that allows them to extend the lease during the life of the bridging loan. In doing so they allow them to significantly improve the value of their property.
With sale of the extended leasehold property often being the exit strategy for redeeming the bridge loan this flexible approach clearly benefits both borrower and lender alike. Crucially specialist lenders, by recognising the strength of the property market and looking at each case on its merits, will consider loans that for High Street lenders are often a blanket decline where the computer says “No.”
As well as providing funds to purchase a short-leasehold property or to extend an existing lease, loan proceeds can also be used for a multiplicity of other purposes such as cash injection into a business or the settlement of creditor debts.
In time-constrained scenarios short lease loans can generally be obtained as quickly as bridging loans against more standard types of property. Interest rates for loans secured against short leasehold property will typically be a little more expensive than those secured against either freehold or longer leasehold properties but, as detailed above, the benefits can be very significant.
Still unsure and need to explore your options? Why not consult an expert?
Central Bridging are specialists in Short Lease Loans with a great track record. We have funded many purchase and refinance loans against short-leasehold properties and in doing so allowed significant numbers of borrowers to extend their leases and subsequently sell for substantially enhanced figures.
We are a principal lender offering a range of loan facilities for business use from £100K to £2.5M over periods from 3 to 24 months. Our loans are secured on freehold and leasehold properties across England and Wales.
Crucially you will always speak to a decision maker who will take time to understand you and your situation and unlike some of the bigger banks will then tailor a solution that best suits your needs rather than our own.
Why not give us a call on 03332 400 506 for an informal chat about your options.
Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada – Redsenol, a ginsenoside brand owned by Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine Ltd., has achieved a huge milestone with its medicinal ingredients ginsenosides getting highly reputed BSCG certification. Redsenol has two products, Redsenol Rare Ginsenosides Capsules and Redsenol-DAG Sublingual Pills.
The BSCG certification affirms that the ginsenosides of Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine, a result of 16 years of rare ginsenoside research, are free from contamination and harmful substances, and thus completely safe for consumption.
Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine Ltd. is a high-tech biopharmaceutical company dedicated to the herbal medicine research, and the company now is focusing on researching and developing safe, health-promoting and metabolized ginsenosides. Ginsenosides are the active ingredients of ginseng, proved with many medicinal benefits including antioxidation, anti-inflammation, and antineoplastic.
Credited with a set of strict scrutiny and certification system, BSCG certification is known as the gold standard in dietary supplements certification. Receiving BSCG certification takes Redsenol a big step forward toward the best ginsenoside brand.
In addition to the newly-certified safety and quality guarantee, Redsenol is also credited with its own unique biotechnological advantages. Ginsenosides cannot be directly absorbed in the human body without going through metabolism, which is a technological challenge for many companies. The proprietary technology developed by Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine transforms large quantities of prototype ginsenosides into metabolized and rare ginsenosides which are fully bio-available to the body in 15-20 minutes with complete potency.
Redsenol is intended to enhance physical capacity/performance, improve cognitive function, reduce mental fatigue, increase energy and resistance to stress, and promote cardiovascular health. Redsenol Capsules contains sixteen rare ginsenosides, namely Rk2, Rg3(S,R), Rh2(S,R), Rg5, Rk1, Rk3, Rh1(S,R), Rh3, Rh4, aPPT(S,R) and aPPD(S,R), and Redsenol-DAG with eight highly bioactive rare ginsenosides in a high concentration. With multiple highly active rare ginsenosides synergistically working together, Redsenol outperforms the products with only one or two rare ginsenosides.
Receiving BSCG certification would help improve the brand image among customers for Redsenol. It can give its consumers great confidence in the quality and safety of the products, especially considering that consumers are concerned about whether health products have false claims on the label or include contaminants or toxic chemicals.
About Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine Ltd.
Headquartered in Vancouver, Canada, Canada Royal Enoch Phytomedicine Ltd. is a hi-tech enterprise group mainly engaged in research, production and sales of natural plant-based products. We aim to extract active ingredients from natural herbal plants.

Facebook is currently one of the biggest social networking sites on the internet and with various other subsidiaries; it now has direct influence on over nearly half of all traffic on the internet. The social network’s core service alone serves well over 2 billion users worldwide.
However, despite its convenience and easy-of-use while staying connected to family and friends, more and more users are growing increasingly concerned about just one singular company storing up so much personal data.
Nonetheless, the popularity of the social networking platforms the main reason why a lot of users are considering exiting the site, but then it’s equally the same reason why it becomes quite difficult to do so. However, with newer rivals trooping into the social networking marketplace, there are now a plethora of alternatives – especially with Facebook struggling with policies regarding user’s privacy.
With Facebook admitting that around 50 million to about 87 million users were affected by the Cambridge Analytica scandal, the #DeleteFacebook campaign has been received more and more support.
However, there are now other alternative apps for users to switch to. In fact, other social networks are some of the best places to get a more secure and less intrusive experience.
One of such apps is the FaceCast app, a video social networking app that offers special and easy-to-use features of a regular social networking app. However, FaceCast is more sophisticated than just any regular social networking app, as users can enjoy live video streams, watch interesting and trending video clips, meet new friends and have a group chat with their own friends on the app.
FaceCast has a live stream feature where users can chat with a broadcaster privately by sending them what they term “gifts” or like on conventional social media apps, when you follow each other you automatically become friends – and begin chatting instantly. A unique feature within the app is that users can earn free diamonds and send gifts to their favorite broadcaster – and without recharging, you are given a minimum of 5 gifts you can send daily.
One of the amazing features of the FaceCast app is its massive library of creative video clips. This feature is a perfect way to entertain yourself while bored. Additionally, just like other video sharing apps, you can upload your own personal videos, but it is more likely to be recommended there – as you share special moments of your life. The icing on the cake is you not only get likes on your videos, but also gifts for each video you make – making it much better than what Facebook offers.
Another feature that is worthy of mention on the FaceCast app is the instant random match video chat (1Vs1 as it’s called within the app). This feature allows you meet new people from anywhere in the world – whether they are within your location or in another continent. All it takes is a tap to find new friends and start your random chat journey and have a quality video chat with him or her “1 on 1”.
Also, more added functions like moments and groups are what make FaceCast an interesting app – and a strong rival in the social networking marketplace.
Furthermore, a great substitute for WhatsApp is Telegram as it offers an almost exact experience with a lot of features similar to those of the Facebook owned messaging app. Telegram was also the first mainstream messaging app to offer its users full data encryption and has similar privacy credentials to that of WhatsApp – however, it faced some tough criticism about not being fully encrypted by default.
Signal is a messaging app that is a lot more privacy-centric and being the platform of choice for NSA whistle blower Edward Snowden, the app was designed with security and privacy as its core focus. Threema is another application that focuses on privacy as no phone number is required to join the platform – which ensures the other party you want to chat with doesn’t need to request your number. One main downside to Threema, however, is that it’s a paid app.
Vero is a social networking site which aims at tackling the dilemma that arises between choosing between the best interests of the users or that of the platforms. Vero is an ad-free platform that rather chooses a subscription-based business model to ensure that it doesn’t turn its users into products that can be monetized.
Completely cutting ties with Facebook for some users might also mean severing ties with family and friends who use the platform and its various subsidiaries as their primary method of online communication. However, with more social networking sites rivalling Facebook, and offering a better experience – just like FaceCast – it’s only a matter of time before more users jump ships to these privacy-centric platforms.

Sheridan, WY, USA – November 13, 2018 – Scammers constantly change phone numbers they use to target people. Every day approximately 20,000 numbers are reported violating the national Do-Not-Call registry. Reverd users report new scam calls directly from their phones the moment they receive them. Thus, database of community reported harassing numbers is growing fast. Reported numbers are automatically blocked on phones using the free Reverd app. The question is:
How can a user make sure that the new number he received while buying a new phone is not blacklisted in Reverd database?
“We created a feature to verify a phone number and make sure the number is clean and has not been reported. It is available online at https://reverd.com/verify.” – says Company’s Spokesperson, Mark McCoy.
Video Link: http://www.youtube.com/embed/7FCIxd26tJU
Why it is recommended to verify a phone number and what are the benefits of this feature: “Statistics show an unprecedented rise of scam calls. Scammers frequently change the numbers they use. Once a number is reported and entered into our community created global database it will remain blacklisted for a period of time to protect our users from unsolicited annoying calls and disturbances. Currently there are more than one million reported numbers in our database which is growing fast. Obviously, nobody wants one of these numbers to be assigned to their new phone because calls from the number will be automatically blocked (our system is very efficient in blocking unwanted calls)” – said CEO Mark McCoy. “Therefore, we are providing an opportunity for everyone to verify a phone number and make sure it is not blacklisted. There is no charge for the first three numbers being verified. After that a minimal symbolic charge applies. Our aim is to keep this service affordable and available for everyone.”
The Reverd automatic phone scam stopper evolved from a simple website to an efficient global system capable of automatically stopping annoying scam phone calls on both iOS and Android phones. It protects user phones automatically, regardless of geographical location or service provider.
