Psychedelic Pharmaceutical Startup Ninnion Announces Patent Filings and Development of NIN-S119 for Ischemic Stroke


Ninnion, a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company focused on developing next-generation psychedelic therapeutics, today announced the commencement of a first-of-its-kind pre-clinical development of NIN-S119. NIN-S119 is a proprietary, short-acting substituted tryptamine to treat patients recovering from ischemic stroke. It would be the first drug of its kind in the treatment of stroke, potentially making it eligible for Breakthrough Therapy designation by the FDA, a designation that can accelerate the development timeline. “Ninnion saw a big opportunity to develop NIN-S119, as there are no approved drug therapies for patients recovering from a stroke. It will be used in conjunction with physical/occupational therapy to enhance stroke recovery by inducing neuroplasticity – meaning it induces the formation of new connections between nerve cells in the brain. This sort of brain ‘rewiring’ could prove beneficial for stroke recovery by creating new brain circuitry that could restore function to brain areas damaged by stroke,” said Bill W Massey, Chief Development Officer of Ninnion. While drugs of this class that produce neuroplastic effects can induce psychedelic experiences (e.g. LSD, mescaline, DMT, etc.), one major benefit of NIN-S119 is that even though it's in this class of drugs, it could potentially be administered in low doses that do not produce these experiences. This would make NIN-S119 much easier to use clinically, reducing the time and effort of clinical staff and opening the potential for administration by the patient at home. “After experiencing multiple health issues, including three strokes in one year, I began researching and reading all about how to repair the brain through the neuroplasticity and neurogenesis effects of psychedelics. We created Ninnion to not only develop a new way to treat strokes but more importantly, to bring these drugs to market in a responsible way. The way psychedelic therapies are set up now is not helpful for the payer-reimbursed market. We want to create therapies that are accessible and affordable; patients should not have to pay thousands of dollars for therapies out of pocket. We’re encouraged by recent patent approvals for the development and delivery of new psychedelic therapies and we’re looking forward to advancing our clinical trials and continuing to develop other molecules in our pipeline,” said Jeremy M Caudill, Founder, and CEO of Ninnion. Ninnion’s research and development efforts currently focus on advancing next-generation psychedelic therapies, which will ultimately empower patients with more accessible and affordable treatment opportunities.

25 Years Since the First Harry Potter Book – Is the Magic Dying?


Harry Potter Box office sales at $9,198,243,071 to date – will the new movie break the $10bn barrier? Previous movie Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald had the lowest opening weekend of all at just $62,163,104. PartyCasino infographic shows UK in top 3 Google Trend spots for Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts. With Harry Potter box office sales reaching a whopping $9,198,243,071 to date, will the latest instalment of Fantastic Beasts: The Secrets of Dumbledore help it to breach the $10 billion mark? PartyCasino has taken a look into the spend behind the Harry Potter movies, including the Worldwide Box Office takings, noting that despite a 60% increase in production spend on Fantastic Beasts: The Crimes of Grindelwald, the Worldwide Box Office takings amounted to under half of the final Harry Potter film. In fact, the last film in 2018, had the lowest opening weekend of all the previous movies in the series at just $62,163,104. The highly anticipated release of Fantastic Beasts: Secrets of Dumbledore being only days away on 8 th April and 15 April (US), is unlikely to come in under $200 million to produce. Will the latest instalment rekindle the wizarding wonder or is the magic truly dying for the franchise? With a brand new Grindelwald, played by Mads Mikkelsen, there is hope for the franchise especially in the UK, with top 3 positions based on global Google search trends for both Harry Potter and Fantastic Beasts movies. Author and creator J.K. Rowling will likely cash in regardless of new movie releases and their success, already with a net worth estimated around $1 billion, by far higher than any Harry Potter star. Will the 25-year anniversary of the first Harry Potter book, break the spell and restore the magic to the series? See all above statistics and visit the interactive post with unique insights to where the interest for the franchise has been the highest, per country, by looking at historical Google search data: Contact Details Intelligiants Ltd Freddie Kvarnebrink +44 7889 314155

Ben Wright, Rob Wellner, and Velocity Global receive First Descents’ Horizon Line Award for Leadership Support of MS Programming

Velocity Global

First Descents awards Ben Wright and Rob Wellner the Horizon Line Award at the 15th Annual First Descents Ball in recognition of Velocity Global’s visionary support of First Descents’ Multiple Sclerosis (MS) programming. “When I was diagnosed with MS 13 years ago, it turned my life upside down,” shares Rob Wellner, Velocity Global’s Chief Revenue Officer. “While medical treatments for MS have improved over time, psychosocial opportunities for those living with this diagnosis still remain limited. I’m honored to help enable these life-changing programs for the MS community in partnership with First Descents, and to be a part of a company dedicated to scaling our philanthropy for meaningful causes as we grow.” Each year, First Descents presents its highest honor - the Horizon Line Award - at the First Descents Ball to an individual or organization who dedicates their time, guidance, and wisdom to First Descents, asking nothing in return. In kayaking, one of our flagship outdoor programs, the horizon line is where the river descends into rapids not viewable by the paddler. At this point, the paddler must rely on his or her skills, tenacity, and the dedicated support of teammates. Over the past two decades, First Descents has experienced countless rapids and milestones in its history, and the team has relied on generous and selfless people and partners, like the entire Velocity Global team, to allow them to charge confidently ahead. “It’s a true honor to receive the Horizon Line Award on behalf of the entire Velocity Global team that puts us in the position to support First Descents and the young adult MS community. I’ve witnessed the transformative and healing power of adventure on their programs, including the very first MS program First Descents provided in 2018,” says Ben Wright, Founder and CEO of Velocity Global. “Service is one of the values we live by in our company, and First Descents embodies service to the full wellbeing of young adults living with MS. I’m proud of our partnership and the opportunity to support their mission in any way we can.” Velocity Global and First Descents have shared a special partnership since 2014 when the two Colorado-based companies became office neighbors at INDUSTRY Denver. Quickly bonding, Velocity Global employees now volunteer annually at First Descents’ programs and fundraisers, including the Ragnar Trail Relay Snowmass and TransRockies Run. In 2018, Velocity Global contributed $150,000 to pilot MS programming which began with a whitewater kayaking experience in Tarkio, Montana. In 2021, Velocity Global announced a transformative $1 million contribution to expand adventure programs for young adults with MS. “This year, we were honored to present Ben, Rob, and the entire Velocity Global team with our prestigious Horizon Line Award. We’ve long believed that our programs can serve populations beyond oncology. Ben and Rob shared this vision, and provided us with the generous funding, clinical connections, and support to extend the healing power of adventure to the MS community,” notes Ryan O’Donoghue, CEO, First Descents. “Their support will help us to serve hundreds of young adults living with MS in the coming years while building meaningful partnerships with patient advocacy groups and neurology clinics nationwide.” First Descents has served 57 MS participants across six programs since launching their pilot MS program in 2018. First Descents aims to serve more than 225 MS participants over the next three years. About Velocity Global Velocity Global accelerates the future of work for anyone, anywhere, anyhow.

Move to Earn Running App StepN is Uncovering a Massive Opportunity within the GameFi Industry: Huobi Research Institute

Huobi Research Institute

Today, Huobi Research Institute, the leading blockchain research organization, published a report, StepN: Move-to-Earn without the Ponzi. StepN is a Web3 running app that rewards users for exercising. Pioneering the Move to Earn concept, StepN has scaled its daily active users to over 74,000 since launching its public beta in December 2021. In January, StepN raised a US$5 million seed round from a leading consortium of investors that included Solana Capital, Alameda Research, and Sequoia Capital. Built on Solana, StepN rewards users with Green Satoshi Tokens (GSTs) as they move and exercise throughout their day. Players can open loot boxes, mint sneakers, and win different categories of NFTs as they progress throughout the game. Each of these NFTs possess different attributes and can be customized. Key to StepN’s success are its SocialFi features; data can be shared with friends and users can invite others to join and compete. By combining social and online reputation systems, StepN makes Move to Earn a more social, rewarding Web3 community activity. In the report, Huobi Research Institute researcher Hugo Hou dissects StepN’s business model and predicts that StepN will drive massive growth for Move to Earn, much in the same way that Axie Infinity sparked widespread adoption of the Play to Earn concept. By encouraging healthy habits, the positive reinforcement introduced by Move to Earn incentives have the potential to reach and impact a much wider audience. This is in contrast to typical Play to Earn games, which are increasingly raising the barrier to entry for new gamers and turning gaming into repetitive chores. “The global gym industry was worth US$96.7 billion in 2020. In the U.S. alone, almost 60 million people participated in running, jogging and trail running in 2017,” said Huobi Research Institute researcher Hugo Hou. “It’s safe to say that Move to Earn could be a massive market, and StepN is well-poised to capture this opportunity.” To download the full report, click here.

Minuteman Press Franchise in Bath, England Moves to New Location, Lands Bath City FC Sponsorship

Minuteman Press International Inc

After 23 years in business and now entering their 24 th year, the long-time Minuteman Press franchise in Bath England has moved to a beautiful new location located on Pines Way Industrial Estate in central Bath. Since the move, Minuteman Press in Bath has nearly doubled production capacity and produced quicker turnaround times for their clients. In what has been a busy year for Minuteman Press in Bath, they have also landed a back of shirt sponsorship for Bath City FC. Throughout the 2021/2022 season, Minuteman Press in Bath has had their logo on player uniforms to increase their brand awareness and visibility. Managing Director David Ghent and Marketing Director Dave Dixon talk about the history of the business as well as what the future holds for Minuteman Press in Bath. What is the history of the business? Dave Dixon: “It all started in 1998 when our MD David Ghent had a vision to provide the best printing services in Bath. He saw a gap in the market for a city-centre location to offer on-site print and copying services. We’ve since outgrown our Walcot Street site and have developed into a commercial, print and signage service in our new facility at Pines Way.” How has the business grown and what are the keys to your success? David Ghent: “For us it’s always been about putting our customers first. We like to help them stretch their marketing budgets as far as possible. Sometimes it’s not about finding the cheapest option, it’s about the maximum return on investment. The success of our customer base is our success. We still have customers today that placed their first orders back in 1998!” What would you say have been the major changes to the printing industry over the past decade? Dave Dixon: “Speed and print enhancements! Sure, if you want a simple brochure to go through the door or get picked up with a load of other flyers that’s great, we can produce thousands of those and you’ll get a small percentage return rate. However, we find that once we add a spot of gloss, gold ink or foil it stands out from the crowd. We’ve also invested heavily over the years in the most up to date technology and most reliable kit to ensure that we can produce great results on time and quickly. After all you’ve seen it on your screen and you are keen to have it in your hand.” How do you set yourself apart from the competition especially online suppliers? David Ghent: “Online print is great if you want cheap bulk printing and you’re 100 percent sure that your artwork is designed well, you’re not too concerned about the final colours and you don’t need any advice or are not expecting a long term relationship with a local supplier. Most of our clients value business relationships and like to discuss their print job and how they might make it look as good as possible. Alongside that excellent level of customer service, we are also able to meet almost any deadline; most of our work is produced the same day on site here at Pines Way, with real people checking your artwork, colours and print quality. We are also a one stop shop. We will deal with your business forms, flyers and brochures, and we can also produce shop signage, vehicle graphics and exhibition displays. You really don’t need to go to many sources for your marketing materials. That’s how we differentiate ourselves.” How did you adapt over the past two years and diversify your offerings? Dave Dixon: “We very soon discovered the joy of floor and wall graphics! We did a little but of that pre-pandemic, but then we had to take it to another level. Our Large Format Studio Manager was in fact working hard during the first lockdown producing a catalogue with a full range of social distancing signage. We also had to test the materials to ensure that they were safe enough for installation on the ground – we really didn’t want people slipping on our floor graphics! We produced thousands of linear metres of floor and wall graphics. We continue to do so now, but for marketing purposes rather than safety.” Why did you decide to move to your new location and what does it mean for your clients and your future? David Ghent: “In reality, we outgrew Walcot Street and we really could not reach our full potential there. The new location represents a €1 million investment in the business. We have two of Xerox’s top end presses and we have added the full range of specialty colours to those, this includes white, fluorescent, gold, silver and clear toners, the range of colours we can really achieve is impressive. We’ve added short run foiling in house and of course our huge vehicle bay means that we can now do signwriting on cars and vans. Our signage team is expanding our offerings further. Interiors will be a big growth area for us including printed graphics on walls, floors, and windows. Window blinds are very popular at the moment and a really cost-effective way to keep your branding visible.” What makes you most proud as you reflect on the past 24 years? Dave Dixon: “We are proud of our level of customer retention. We work closely with our client base to ensure that they are always happy. We are also always happy to give back to our local community through supporting charities and clubs with free or heavy discounted pricing, as well as being proud to be a local business taking part in the civic life of our city.” What’s next for Minuteman Press in Bath? David Ghent: “We are in the right premises at last, so we now need to consolidate and plan for expansion. We need to continue strengthening our print and signage offerings and ensure that we are seen locally as Bath’s number one printer, as well as growing our online sales.” For more information on Minuteman Press in Bath, England, visit Learn more about Minuteman Press UK franchise opportunities at Contact Details Minuteman Press International Chris Biscuiti +1 631-249-1370 Company Website
