Philadelphia’s Future Female Leaders Attend Free Construction Camp for Girls throughout Summer of 2023


Local Philadelphia-area girls entering 7 th through 12 th grade will attend a free construction camp this summer to provide real-world experience, mentorship, and education about the opportunities that exist in the construction industry, regardless of gender. The camp is called MyWIC, which stands for Mentoring young Women In Construction, and will take place in Philadelphia between Thursday, July 6 through Friday, Aug. 11. MyWIC is run by the NAWIC Philadelphia Foundation, which partnered with companies like NEST, a leading national facilities management company, and Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern Jersey to make it a reality. The camp strives to create a sustainable labor pool in the construction industry while exposing young women to careers they may not have previously considered. The Philadelphia Youth Network Work Ready also provides funding to cover a portion of the cost. “MyWIC is developing America’s next generation of female leaders by teaching them about the construction and skilled trades industry,” said Mary Gaffney, NAWIC Phila. Foundation President. “Females make up only about 10% of the construction industry, and there are incredible opportunities to build a career in the skilled trades. By the end of the camp, we see a tangible increase in the girls’ self-confidence, self-esteem, and overall self-image.” “The construction industry and the skilled trades offer so many opportunities for future careers that are in high demand, not only in Philadelphia but across the country,” said Rob Almond, CEO of NEST, which is based in South Jersey. “The MyWIC camp is a summer-long tradition that shows the girls the incredible career opportunities in our industries. The girls learn that construction is so much more than swinging a hammer.” The construction camp will take place at several trade locations throughout the Philadelphia area during July and August. Each day, the girls will learn about a specialty within the trades, including carpentry, sheet metal, safety training, electricians, finishing trades, steamfitters, plumbers, and retail construction. The attendees of the camp are coordinated by Girls Inc. of Greater Philadelphia & Southern Jersey. About Mentoring Young Women In Construction Mentoring young Women In Construction (MyWIC) is a free, construction industry, day camp for 7 th through 12 th -grade girls in the Philadelphia region.

Tribe WOD Founders Sue Factory 14 and Razor Group, Alleging Fraud and Breach of Contract

Tribe WOD

The founders of Tribe WOD, a prominent cross-training and fitness equipment manufacturer, have filed a lawsuit against brand aggregators Factory 14 and Razor Group, citing deceit, fraud, breach of contract, unfair and deceptive trade practices, and unjust enrichment, among other offenses. The lawsuit, filed in Massachusetts Superior Court, alleges that the defendants, Factory 14 and Razor Group, failed to fulfill promises made during the acquisition of Tribe WOD. Alleged breaches of the agreement include failure to make earn-out payments as well as failing to provide access to business records – all outlined in the acquisition contract. Originating from a humble Massachusetts garage, Tribe WOD founders Alexandre Vitet and Jared Bane built their company into a $2.5 million enterprise before selling it to Factory 14, which later resold it to Razor Group. Despite promises of global expansion, enhanced marketing, access to industry experts, and potential earn-out payments, the plaintiffs argue that the defendants neglected their commitments, substantially harming the company and disregarding U.S. laws and business practices. Tribe WOD, which launched in 2019, swiftly grew to over $2.5 million in sales in just a few months, establishing strong sales channels via Amazon, Shopify, and various online platforms. This success attracted several potential buyers, with Factory 14 standing out due to its promise of multiple payments tied to Tribe WOD's annual earnings through earn-outs. The lawsuit contends that shortly after the acquisition, Factory 14 sold the assets of Tribe WOD to Razor Group, bypassing an anti-assignment provision in the original agreement. It is alleged that Factory 14 knowingly withheld information regarding this potential transaction from the plaintiffs. According to the lawsuit, Vitet and Bane had doubled revenue year-over-year and had expected to, at a minimum, match that. The lawsuit states that based on the promises made during the courtship and due diligence phase, there were immediate red flags after signing the acquisition agreement, and the situation quickly spiraled downward. Moreover, the complaint asserts that both Factory 14 and Razor Group systematically dismantled Tribe WOD, dismissing in-house creative content specialists and neglecting basic operational necessities. According to the lawsuit, Factory 14 and Razor Group failed to comply with federal and state tax, wage, and import laws and otherwise mismanaged the business financially. The lawsuit also states that the defendants had no U.S. bank account or credit card and were unable to obtain either and thus were unable to pay any of the company’s bills. The lawsuit alleges that the failure to pay basic bills led to lost revenue and the ability to serve existing customers or expand to new markets. The plaintiffs claim that their consulting agreements were prematurely terminated and allege that income from Tribe WOD was siphoned off to other businesses. The lawsuit alleges that Factory 14 and Razor Group essentially turned a thriving brand built by the founders with a rabid customer following into an Amazon seller with no identity, and loaded with unnecessary fees. The lawsuit seeks compensatory and multiple damages and injunctive relief, compelling the defendants to provide accurate and complete financial data. Interestingly, Razor Group faces a similar lawsuit in Texas, as it is being sued by the founders of Kettlebell Kings in a case with similar allegations. On its website, Razor Group states that it is trusted by leading investors Blackrock, Victory Park Capital, and Fortress among others. The Tribe WOD lawsuit was filed in Massachusetts Superior Court by Garage Sweat, LLC f/k/a Tribe Wod, LLC, Jared Bane, and Alexandre Vitet against Factory 14 UK Acquisition IV, Ltd., Razor Group GMBH, and Razor Group USA, LLC. This case has been accepted into and will be litigated in the Business Litigation Session, a business-focused sub-department of the Massachusetts Superior Court sited in Boston, Suffolk County, Massachusetts.

For these new blends, we specifically formulated each one with a protein in mind.” These beer-infused blends can be purchased as a four-pack or as individual cans, with plastic lids included: Sticky Bourbon Brown Ale ($14.95): Memphis-style with burnt sugar sweetness, bourbon notes, and a tiny amount of heat for balance.

This beer-infused flavor twist on a classic salt and pepper blend is made for beef, but works perfectly with pasta salad, dressings, marinades, roasted veggies, and more. Big Bad BBQ Ale ($14.95): An all-purpose BBQ blend with all of Derek’s favorite flavor profiles. This blend is made for anything and everything, especially smash burgers, beef, chicken, pork, vegetables, and seafood. “The original six-pack of beer-infused blends we formulated with Derek quickly became one of our most popular products and gift sets,” said Chef Tony Reed, Executive Director of Culinary. “For this round, Derek wanted classic BBQ rubs with his personal twist, and the addition of ingredients like cinnamon, cocoa, and of course, beer, brought these classic-style blends to the next level.” The blends can be found on and are available in individual beer cans or as a set of all four.

Pancreatic Cancer Trials & New Treatments Receiving Increased Funding as Incidences of Cancer Grows

STORM Partners News Commentary - Pancreatic cancer is one of the leading causes of cancer death globally. The increasing incidence of this cancer across the U.S. and other parts of the world is one of the factors driving the need for the drugs used in the treatment. The increase in the geriatric population is one factor driving the pancreatic cancer treatment market growth. The incidence is significantly higher in the geriatric population above 65 years of age compared to other types of cancers. The increase in the number of patients suffering from the condition has increased the demand for the drugs used in treatment. A report from Fortune Business Insights said that this factor will be driving the growth for the next several years. The report projected that the global pancreatic cancer treatment market size was valued at USD 2.48 billion in 2022 and will grow to USD 6.85 billion by 2029, exhibiting a CAGR of 15.7% during the forecast period. The report continued: “Companies engaged in manufacturing cancer drugs have increased their focus on R&D activities to develop new drugs for pancreatic cancer treatment. Additionally, the companies operating in the market have received approval from several regulatory bodies, such as the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA), the Medicines and Healthcare Products Regulatory Agency (MHRA) (U.K.), among others, thereby propelling the growth of the market. Moreover, new testing technologies are being adopted by hospitals and diagnostic centers to diagnose cancer. The increase in the diagnosis rates is driving the demand for drugs, thereby providing opportunities for the players.” Active biotech and pharma companies in the markets this week include Oncolytics Biotech ® Inc. (ONCY – ONC.TSX), Sotera Health Company (NASDAQ: SHC), Centessa Pharmaceuticals plc (NASDAQ: CNTA), Bristol Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY), Gilead Company (NASDAQ: GILD). Fortune Business Insights continued: “Shifting the focus of key players in extensive R&D activities to develop new drugs and an increase in funding for cancer research led to the development of new drugs for treatment. Additionally, several pharmaceutical companies are involved in clinical trials to develop new drugs and explore the potential of the molecule to treat the disease. It concluded: “Thus, with the increased funding for R&D activities, companies are focused on developing new drugs, thereby contributing to the overall rise in demand for drugs for pancreatic type of cancer treatment through 2029.” Oncolytics Biotech ® Inc. (ONCY - ONC) BREAKING NEWS: Oncolytics Biotech’s® Pelareorep Selected for Inclusion in Precision PromiseSM Pivotal Phase 3 Platform Trial – Adaptive clinical trial designed to accelerate registration pathways for pancreatic cancer therapies and expected to reduce cost of a Phase 3 study for pelareorep by ~50% compared to a traditional trial If successful, new clinical study expected to support approval of pelareorep in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor, gemcitabine, and nab-paclitaxel in first-line metastatic pancreatic cancer Data presented at SITC 2022 showed a near tripling of overall response rate for pelareorep + gemcitabine + nab-paclitaxel + a PD-L1 inhibitor compared to historical control trials Oncolytics Biotech ® (trading on the NASDAQ under the Symbol ONCY and the TSX exchange under ONC) today announced pelareorep has been selected for inclusion as a new investigational treatment in Precision PromiseSM, an innovative adaptive Phase 3 clinical trial. The Precision Promise study is designed to evaluate pelareorep in combination with a checkpoint inhibitor and the chemotherapeutic agents gemcitabine and nab-paclitaxel. If successful, the clinical study is expected to support approval of the studied combination as a treatment for first-line metastatic pancreatic ductal adenocarcinoma (PDAC). Precision Promise has a primary endpoint of overall survival and can include multiple investigational treatments as well as control arms evaluating: (1) gemcitabine plus nab-paclitaxel or (2) mFOLFIRINOX. Each investigational therapy is subject to pre-specified interim analyses prior to proceeding to the registrational portion of the trial. This design, which was developed with guidance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, minimizes the number of participants needed to generate licensure-enabling data, thereby accelerating late-stage development by up to two years and reducing costs compared to non-platform trials. “We are delighted at being selected by the Precision Promise panel of experts,” said Dr. Matt Coffey, President, and Chief Executive Officer of Oncolytics Biotech. “Our next step is to engage with stakeholders to finalize the protocol for Precision Promise’s pelareorep-containing investigational treatment so that we can enter into this study. We are thrilled to have the opportunity to leverage Precision Promise, which we expect will allow us to reduce the time and costs needed to reach a potential approval.” Julie Fleshman, JD, MBA, President and CEO of PanCAN commented, “With a five-year survival rate of 12%, pancreatic cancer patients cannot afford to wait for new treatment options. This urgent unmet need was the driving inspiration behind the Precision Promise platform trial, which was designed specifically to identify, accelerate, and de-risk the development of promising pancreatic cancer treatments. We are thrilled to be bringing pelareorep into Precision Promise as a new investigational therapy to study against the current standard of care.” Dr. Thomas Heineman, Chief Medical Officer of Oncolytics Biotech, commented, “Prior trials in pancreatic cancer show pelareorep-based combinations outperforming historical controls on key metrics such as one and two-year survival and objective response rate. In addition, mechanistic data from these studies highlight how pelareorep’s immunologic mechanism of action allows it to synergize with chemotherapy and checkpoint inhibition in this indication. I look forward to working with the Precision Promise team of investigators to seek to confirm the therapeutic value of pelareorep in a randomized setting so that we can potentially provide pancreatic cancer patients with a new treatment option.” CONTINUED …Read this full press release and more news for ONCY at: Other recent breast cancer developments in the biotech industry of note include: Sotera Health Company (NASDAQ: SHC) recently announced that the opt-in process for the January 2023 settlements of ethylene oxide claims against Sterigenics in the Circuit Court of Cook County, Illinois is complete and Sterigenics has elected to proceed with the settlements. 879 of the 882 claimants eligible to participate in the settlement program have opted in. The settling claimants and Sterigenics will now request that the Circuit Court enter an order confirming that these are good-faith settlements under the Illinois Contribution Among Joint Tortfeasors Act. The settlement funds will be released from escrow for disbursement to the settling claimants ten days after the Court enters the anticipated good-faith determination and their claims against Sterigenics will subsequently be dismissed with prejudice. The lawsuits of the three claimants who opted out of the settlement will proceed to pretrial discovery pursuant to a schedule to be set by the Circuit Court.

We believe SerpinPC has the potential to be a first-in-class subcutaneously administered therapy with a differentiated safety profile for persons with hemophilia B, subject to review and approval.” Bristol Myers Squibb (NYSE: BMY) announced the first disclosure of primary analysis results from two pivotal studies, TRANSCEND FL, an open-label, global, multicenter, Phase 2, single-arm study evaluating Breyanzi (lisocabtagene maraleucel; liso-cel) in patients with relapsed or refractory follicular lymphoma (FL) and the relapsed or refractory mantle cell lymphoma (MCL) cohort of TRANSCEND NHL 001, an open-label, multicenter, Phase 1, single-arm, seamless-design study evaluating Breyanzi. These data were presented in late-breaking oral presentations at the 2023 International Conference on Malignant Lymphoma (ICML) on Saturday, June 17. "With Breyanzi, we’re dedicated to delivering a CAR T cell therapy with a differentiated profile to transform outcomes for some of the most difficult-to-treat lymphomas," said Anne Kerber, senior vice president, head of Cell Therapy Development, Bristol Myers Squibb.

For Adrian, the food truck is a way to bring his family's barbecue tradition to new audiences in the city and allows him to share his passion with more people than ever before. “Whenever we had the opportunity to be a vendor at the AT&T Center for the Spurs, we received a great reaction from the community of San Antonio. The Spurs reflect the people and culture of the city, and found they truly connected with our food and story. We were invigorated more with having a presence there and being a part of the rich history and are very excited to be a part in a new way.” The menu will be South Texas Tejano-inspired cuisine that’s a mix of modern Mexican comfort food. What you would expect from the menu is something you enjoy from your abuela’s kitchen but with a modern twist infused with the classic smoke and spice known from Davila’s BBQ. Approachable and made for sharing, dine on items like peanut butter mole wings, lamb barbacoa tacos, brisket grilled cheese, and more! Adrian Davila is a nationally-recognized barbecue restaurateur, chef, and pitmaster at the acclaimed Davila's BBQ in Seguin, TX. His grandfather, Raul Davila, opened Davila’s in 1959, more than a half-century ago, and passed on the secrets of his smoked BBQ to Adrian’s father, Edward Davila. The Davilas are deeply proud of their Mexican-American roots and family tradition of creating the best barbecue in Texas. Adrian credits his grandfather and father with teaching him the value of hard work. “They laid a wonderful foundation and footprint for Davilas. They are men of little words, but their dedication to their business and family to put food on the tables has inspired me since I was young. My grandfather put in the early hours getting the restaurant started, and my father expanded into catering, and sought different opportunities for business. Their entrepreneurial spirit set me up and allowed me to be able to travel and cook all over the world, write a cookbook, and continue to expand the brand.” Most of his youth was spent in the kitchens of the barbecue restaurant, learning all the special techniques until he could prepare everything on the menu to perfection. Adrian still practices those skills today and has since created unique barbecue recipes for the restaurant and their extensive catering business, including his new venture, Davila’s on Wheels. Adrian’s cookbook “Cowboy Barbecue: Fire & Smoke from the Original Texas Vaqueros” is the perfect inspiration for your next backyard barbecue. He was also featured as a judge on the Travel Channel’s show “American Grilled,” as a contestant (and first-place winner) on the Food Network show “BBQ Blitz Texas Takedown,” as a guest chef on the Food Network’s “The Kitchen” and as a judge on the Food Network’s “BBQ Kids Champion.” Adrian is also frequently featured in publications, including the San Antonio Express-News, MySA, San Antonio Edible Magazine, and the Seguin “Sizzle” Gazette. You can also find Davila’s BBQ at the AT&T Center for the 2022-2023 Spurs Season and during the San Antonio Stock Show and Rodeo. So if you're looking for some life-changing barbecue in San Antonio, check out Adrian Davila's new food truck. With his passion for barbecue and commitment to using the best ingredients possible, you’ll want to line up Thursday morning ahead of the rush for his next food truck appearance. In 1959, Davila's BBQ was first opened by Raul Davila in an old abandoned school house in Seguin, TX. With no decorations and no cash register, the Davila family nestled in the back two rooms of the restaurant and opened for business. Nearly sixty years and three generations later, Davila's BBQ has continued to grow and been nationally recognized as one of the top BBQ places in Texas. Third generation Pitmaster Adrian Davila now leads the restaurant and continues the tradition with passed down family recipes. Adrian celebrates traditions of Latin America and Texas, taking inspiration from the vaquero lifestyle of his own family history, infusing classic brisket, ribs and sausage with Latin flavors and ingredients. In 2018 Adrian released his first cookbook, Cowboy Barbecue, which has been featured on the Today Show, The Washington Post, and Texas Monthly.
