Freight Rate Transparency gains traction in Freight Forwarding – SHIFEX by Shifl

Shifl

Digital forwarding and supply chain platform Shifl has announced the launch of SHIFEX, an Ocean Spot Freight Rate Index for container shipments which is now available on their website ( https://shifl.com/index ). The recent and continuing unprecedented chaos in the freight markets has brought the dire need for transparency and visibility into actual ocean freight rates. Shabsie Levy, CEO and Founder of Shifl, said he often found thousands of dollars of disparities between reported and actual freight rates on the market. “In the current market condition, just about no one can afford to pay hundreds and sometimes thousands of dollars more for moving a single container,” said Levy. SHIFEX provides live insights into ocean freight rates. It tracks and displays the average ocean spot freight rates for 40'containers (FEU) on main Transpacific routes at any given period. Freight rate transparency and accuracy have always been touted as core business values. They improve customer engagement, build trust, and increase productivity in an industry that has been opaque. “By leveraging our existing technology, we are helping shippers benchmark the freight rates they should be paying for their shipments and help them better plan their order placements and inventory” said Levy. By analyzing its own data of actual bookings and shipments, Shifl was able to alert the market in advance of the drastic changes in the ocean spot freight rates across the volatile periods in 2021 and 2022. Eli Gelbman of The New York Doll Collection a company that manufacturers and sells childrens dolls and accessories says, "I am pleased that Shifl is launching SHIFEX. As a regular importer, we have been following Shifl's rate data in their market reports which has helped us tremendously in managing the volatility in the freight market. Having the same info now on-demand, will allow us to make better supply chain decisions, and improve efficiency in costing and in planning our orders." More about SHIFEX SHIFEX, the first ocean spot freight rate index by a US freight forwarder, provides live insights into ocean spot freight rates as it tracks and displays rates that are applicable on the Trans-Pacific route. SHIFEX is based on the actual spot freight rates quoted and/or paid for moving shipments on the Trans-Pacific route and is therefore a true reflection of the prevailing market conditions in the freight forwarding spot market. SHIFEX is offered as a free service by Shifl and covers Port to Port container spot freight rates. SHIFEX includes all commonly applicable surcharges, —including but not limited to BAF (Bunker and/or Emergency Bunker Adjustment Factor), CAF (Currency Adjustment Factor) ISPS (International Security Port Surcharge), PCS (Port congestion surcharge). The index provides past and current freight rates with the option of tracking rates on a 3, 5, 12 and 18 month basis from the base ports of China to both Los Angeles and New York. In addition to freight rates, Shifl is also planning to include its highly popular vessel transit and container dwell data and add spot freight rates of other trade lanes to SHIFEX so customers can track the past and current performance of these metrics as well. SHIFEX complements digital offerings that include Shifl.com, the digital forwarding and supply chain platform, and Shifl.capital, the cutting-edge FinTech solution designed to make business transactions easier for supply chain companies. About Shifl Shifl is leading the supply chain industry into the future with technology and innovation that brings a huge array of real-life benefits to its users. If you are a shipper looking to bring your business into today's digital age, be more in control, and pay less overall - Shifl is for you.

Shareholder Activist Demands Google, YouTube Reveal Biden Admin’s ‘Take Down’ Requests

National Legal & Policy Center

Today, Paul Chesser, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s (NLPC) Corporate Integrity Project, will present remarks at the Alphabet annual meeting to support a shareholder resolution the ethics group filed with the company. NLPC’s Alphabet proposal would require the company to itemize and disclose the nature of 'take-down requests' from the federal government. Last July, former White House press secretary Jen Psaki confirmed the Biden Administration is in regular touch with social media platforms to address misinformation, specifically regarding COVID-19. “How, when, and why, are Google and YouTube censoring content on their platforms at the behest of the Biden administration and its agencies like the CDC?” Chesser will ask. “If our resolution passes, they would be required to disclose that information in a report.” The full text of Chesser’s remarks are below: I’m Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for National Legal and Policy Center. A public service announcement for my fellow shareholder proponents: Beware when a company opposes your resolution by using the term “robust” to describe its existing disclosures. When you see that word “robust,” you can be sure the company is gaslighting you, as Alphabet is doing in its proxy response to my organization’s proposal. Our proposal requests a detailed report that itemizes requests from U.S. government officials and agencies, names those officials, details the nature of each request, tells what Google’s decision was about the request, and provides the rationale for each decision. Alphabet’s proxy response is to refer you its misnamed “Transparency Report,” which tells us nothing, other than to enumerate how many takedown requests they’ve received from various governments around the world. The only reason we won’t get the kind of report my organization requests is because Alphabet’s majority voters, Sergey Brin and Larry Page, don’t want you to know how much the Biden administration conspires with Google and YouTube to censor users of their platforms. MSNBC’s newest personality, former White House spokeswoman Jen Psaki, confirmed that in a press conference last year. She said almost one year ago, “We are in regular touch with these social media platforms, and those engagements typically happen through members of our senior staff, but also members of our COVID-19 team.” This was after Biden’s Surgeon General said that “tech and social media companies must do more to address” alleged health misinformation. As we all know now, it was the Biden administration and agencies like the CDC and NIH that were the dis-informers: by lying to the public about COVID and its origins; by pushing shutdowns despite their destructiveness; by ignoring evidence about the ineffectiveness of masks and the failed vaccines; and by censoring information about COVID that they did not approve of. For example, it’s clear Google censored search results for the “Great Barrington Declaration,” which has now been signed by almost 1 million medical and health professionals, and which opposed the prevailing and destructive COVID-19 policies pushed by the Biden administration. Google almost certainly did so at the behest of the NIH’s Francis Collins or Anthony Fauci, or an ally of theirs, not because of any serious scientific rebuttal to the Declaration, but because they were personally offended that their policies were being criticized and disproved. I can’t think of a more catastrophic failure of public policy and guidance for the public than the federal government’s COVID mandates, and both Google and YouTube validated the authoritarianism behind these edicts, by shutting down all dissent – much of which could have improved outcomes and saved lives. Google and YouTube removed information the Biden administration does not want you to access, because they do not believe in free speech. They are morally bankrupt partners in a public policy crime. No wonder why they want to keep it all secret. END REMARKS “Big Tech’s pro-Leftist biases are well established and proven, but Google’s and YouTube’s COVID censorship the last two years have been especially poisonous,” Chesser explains. “These efforts to shut down dissent, at the behest of the Biden administration in an effort to extend their authoritarian reach, are shameful, and had real costs both economically and in terms of lives lost. Alphabet has put itself at legal and financial risk with its efforts to suppress information.” NLPC has filed dozens of shareholder resolutions and appeared at the annual meetings of Berkshire Hathaway, Disney, Coca-Cola, Amazon, Twitter, Meta, and many others. In addition to Alphabet, Chesser is presenting at the Walmart and Comcast annual meetings today. Founded in 1991, NLPC promotes ethics in public life and government accountability through research, investigation, education, and legal action. ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or drene@nlpc.org.

(TSXV: VOL) (OTCQB: VLTTF) ("Volatus" or "the Company"), is pleased to announce record sales for the first quarter of 2022. The growth was driven by sales of products and solutions. Key Financial Highlights: Revenue for Q1 2022 was $4,807,829, an increase of 64% over the previous quarter and a sixteen-fold increase over the year-on-year quarter of 2021. The revenue was driven predominantly by organic growth across Canada, the USA, Latin America, and some parts of Europe. The drone services and training segment are lowest in the first quarter due to seasonality. Gross profit for Q1 2022 was $1,092,840 an increase of $930,748 over the same period in 2021. The increase in gross profit is due to scaling in product and service activities. Volatus recorded a comprehensive loss of $1,774,397 compared to a comprehensive loss of $1,328,628 in the previous quarter. This was due to increased investment in human resources and expansion activities. Operational Highlights: The Company achieved significant milestones in the first quarter of 2022, namely: Volatus scaled its activities in the United States and the United Kingdom, hiring key people in the public safety and defense sectors. As a result of the Russian invasion of Ukraine, the demand for defense related drones has significantly increased globally. The Company accelerated its plans to expand in Europe and nearby regions and is promoting its capabilities to provide ISR (Intelligence, Surveillance, Reconnaissance) and humanitarian cargo drone solutions. The Company is actively supporting non-government organizations (NGOs) including Mriya Aid and Second Front Ukraine in their efforts to support Ukraine. Volatus has entered numerous strategic partnerships with North American and European UAS manufacturers having unique capabilities in different sectors - providing a portfolio of technologies for it to commercialize and present as integrated solutions to its clients in the commercial, public safety and defense sectors. These technologies have been “Vetted by Volatus” – a program whereby a team of subject matter experts from Volatus perform due diligence on the technology and certify that it is ready for commercialization. The Company made a strategic move with the acquisition of MVT Geo Solutions Inc. on February 28, 2022. This acquisition enhanced Volatus' service and data processing capabilities in the province of Quebec and Eastern Canada. Volatus will integrate the operations of MVT to provide data insights and scale its LiDAR expertise across Canada. As part of creating a drone community, Volatus introduced Drone Network News available here. This communication channel was developed to inform various stakeholders in the industry, enable sharing of knowledge and informed decision making and increase the awareness and market exposure of Volatus as an industry expert. This channel highlights all the key developments in the drone industry across the globe through articles, discussions, and podcasts with key industry leaders. “Drones are the future and Volatus is the future of drones,” said Glen Lynch, President and CEO of Volatus. “During the quarter we have made considerable investments in equipment, inventory, sales personnel, and marketing in preparation for continued strong expansion during the remainder of 2022. We are committed to building the global drone company and running it sustainably.” The condensed consolidated interim financial statements for the three months ended March 31, 2022, and associated management discussion and analysis, are made available under the Company's profile on SEDAR at www.sedar.com Webinar In conjunction with this release, Volatus investor relations Kate McKenna will host a webinar on Tuesday, May 31 st at 11:00 AM EST at which time Glen Lynch, Chief Executive Officer, and Abhinav Singhvi, Chief Financial Officer, will review the quarterly results and major milestones.

How a Carbon Tax Can Help Address Climate Change

YourUpdateTV

As the United States’ fiscal challenges deepen and climate change worsens globally, the need to identify pro-growth solutions is a priority of policymakers. Alex Flint, executive director of the Alliance for Market Solutions (AMS), this week participated in a nationwide satellite media tour to discuss how a carbon tax can both address climate change and grow the economy. A video accompanying this announcement is available at: https://youtu.be/4H9P0JvFRVY For decades, the U.S. government has sought to curb carbon pollution and mandate energy efficiency standards through a host of regulations and tax subsidies. Today, conservatives and economists alike recognize that taxes are more efficient than regulations. Using a carbon tax to reduce carbon pollution costs the economy less than achieving the same result through regulation. A carbon tax can raise revenue—which a regulation or a suite of regulations cannot do—and can be used to reduce other, more distortionary taxes, which hinder economic growth, like the income tax. The result is a more efficient tax system that, while raising the same amount of revenue, allows the economy to grow faster, making it easier for the federal government to meet its fiscal obligations while reaching their climate goals. Congress is currently debating a carbon border adjustment mechanism, which would impose a fee on imports from countries with lower environmental standards and could serve a lynchpin for a domestic carbon pricing policy. For more information about a carbon tax and AMS, visit amsresearch.org About Alliance for Market Solutions AMS is a nonprofit educational organization of conservative leaders addressing two of America’s most pressing challenges: the need to reduce carbon pollution and grow the economy. We respect climate change science and support replacing regulations with a revenue-neutral carbon tax—policy that would efficiently protect the environment and deregulate and grow the economy. AMS engages directly with influential conservatives, including policymakers, to cultivate support for a revenue-neutral carbon tax. We also conduct research that demonstrates the viability and benefits of a carbon tax. Contact Details YourUpdateTV +1 212-736-2727 yourupdatetv@gmail.com

Purple Garden Psychic Reading Services Brings Advice Seekers To Professional Psychics Online

Blue Ribbon Group

Purple Garden psychics' app makes it simple to see the various types of readings they provide by selecting "category" from the main menu. Purple Garden uses these categories to categorize and prioritize the readings they want to feature. We believe this is a little deceptive. Is there something happening here? Many of the psychic readers' bios will disclose that they are also skilled at other forms of readings, such as palm and tarot readings. After completing the profile, you must submit sample video call readings. Purple Garden will notify the psychic whether or not they have been chosen. An adviser is responsible for ensuring that the information in their web profile is valid and that the content accurately reflects their qualifications. Purple Garden is part of the Purple Ocean and Bitwine Psychics physics network. They feature a simple and user-friendly mobile phone application that allows for a pleasant browsing experience. Purple Garden offers live psychic readings or psychic conversation, while Purple Ocean offers sample video readings that answer one or two quick questions. It's simple to find psychics, read their ratings, add funds, and interact with them from your phone, 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. This smartphone app allows you to contact a psychic whenever you need one. At first appearance, the site appears to be simple to navigate, making it a wonderful place to start dipping your toes into online reading. Continue reading to learn more about the Purple Garden app and see if it lives up to our initial thoughts. Psychics interested in becoming Purple Garden readers must first download the Purple Ocean app (the sister site to Purple Garden). Advisors must create a profile on the app and include their legal name, address, and phone number for identification. To get compensated for services provided, they must also share PayPal account information. All advisors must include a real photo of themselves (no icons or illustrations) on their profiles, an introductory video, and a description of their services. Purple Garden psychics must submit a video tarot reading as a test to be employed. There is no simple screening mechanism beyond that, and Purple Garden admits that accuracy cannot be assured. Relationship and career predictions are more therapeutic than psychic, but as their star ratings and reviews indicate, each psychic reader is an expert in their profession. They are trained and will be able to assist you in determining whether you should take a step in either direction or whether nothing will change. Additionally, dream interpretation can be extremely beneficial. If you've had a particularly restless night's sleep or believe your subconscious is attempting to communicate with you, you can get a lot of support. Purple Garden is an American company. Thus, angel insights is another area where they thrive. The United States is statistically the country that believes the most in angels, and these readings can be very useful if you want to communicate with a spirit from the other side. For instance, if you recently lost someone close to you. Ghosts are also included, which is convenient. Some real-time counselors can help individuals locate the correct online psychic reader on the platform. People often have difficulty finding online psychic readers or are unsure which reading to choose. Purple Garden is the only website offering real-time service to keep users engaged with their offerings. Clients can also obtain some free beginning minutes to have a real-time experience and gauge the quality of the service before paying in full. This establishes trust between the company and the customer. The AI improves your search results and suggests various tarot card readers based on your search results. Although many cheap psychics also train in 'helping' professions such as counseling or a love therapist, relationship coaching may be a fancy name for a 'love psychic.' In some way, the psychics in this area will all specialize in love and relationship issues. So, it's worth looking through this area because each relationship coach may have a distinct set of talents. We believe this is a ruse to conceal some deficiency, but we're unsure. Purple Garden psychics have extensive reader profiles that include information about their background, credentials, reviews, and services provided. The advisor's 5-star rating is displayed at the top of the profile, a video introduction, the number of Purple Garden readings completed, the year joined, and the number of positive or negative evaluations. The adviser then displays the costs for the various services they provide, thorough information about their unique services, an "about me" section, and the types of readings they provide. Finally, there are client reviews of the advisor at the bottom. Palm readings are a one-of-a-kind service that not many online psychic sites can offer because many don't offer online psychic readings. A psychic can't read your palm without seeing your hands. Take advantage of a palm reading to learn about your life's plans and where you're headed. Purple Garden's user interface is simple and intuitive. You won't waste any time figuring out how to utilize the app since it's that straightforward. As a result, you'll have more time to browse and converse with the psychics. Although we believe it is pretty basic, it has untapped potential. However, the entire application is well-designed, tidy, and simple. Purple Garden's developers have thought of everything you might need to help you make an informed selection about which psychic to choose. Leelah said, "This was my first time using this app, and it featured some excellent psychic readings. I sincerely hope that everything they say is correct. Thank you for your consideration. It's tough for me to think that everything you've stated will come true with the surety that I'm frightened to wish for, but I take comfort in your words and keep you updated on what happens." Jennifer said, "I believe some of the readers were perceptive but did not provide concrete answers to help me with my problem; yet, am I overthinking things? I wish there were no sad or joyful faces. I'm happy with the responses I received. Maybe it wasn't $75, but I'm not going to fight it. No need to get defensive because I meant to make a joyful expression! I also mentioned that I was overthinking things. This was a decent review. So please remain calm and refrain from attacking. Was it worth $75? I can confidently say that I would do it again." Hazel said, "Excellent reading!! Some Purple Garden readers have a heavy accent, making it difficult to understand them, but I could tell they were aware of my situation if I listened attentively (with only the names, birthdays, and questions). They noticed things I didn't tell them about. I'm hoping that what they say comes true! Many thanks" Sonam Magan said, "The reading was fantastic. Thank you for the reader's reassurance and comfort in my worrying condition. In return, I send all the readers blessings and love. Their readings are always spot on. I've had multiple conversations with different psychic readers, and They are almost always correct about what's going on in my life. They had a keen sense of what was going on in the relationship. With current energy, They were dead on. It gives me faith in their reader's forecasts." Amanda said, "The psychic readers at Purple Garden were aware of the issue at work. Unfortunately, that company did not perform as expected. However, another company contacted me within a few days. As a result, their overall judgment was correct, but not the corporation. I informed their readers about a position I had applied for and some other correspondence, and I assumed I would not be hired. They said they would contact me within a day or two and that I would be hired. In less than 48 hours, another company contacted me and informed me that they would contact me with an offer. Although the readings are not always as detailed as the actual firm or position, they did pick up on the fact that I will be approached for work, and she was correct!" Elise Ann said, "Excellent reading! I appreciate it when card readers tell you what cards they will get. The readers were incredibly instructive and soothing. I even had a few questions, which the readers responded to, making them excellent advisors. I highly recommend Purple Garden." Purple Garden is the newest mobile psychic reading platform on the street, allowing you to interact with psychics directly from your phone, anytime, and from anywhere — true psychic convenience. Purple Garden has an uncountable number of psychics in each category (8 in total), so you'll always have plenty of options. The most important thing to remember about Purple Garden is that it is built and optimized for mobile devices while you may use the platform on a desktop. It's simple and free to get started; you need an email address and a password. You can use your laptop or mobile device to log in once you've registered an account.

Shareholder Activist Confronts Big Tech Companies at Annual Meetings

National Legal & Policy Center

Today, Paul Chesser, Director of the National Legal and Policy Center’s Corporate Integrity Project, is presenting remarks at the Amazon, Twitter, and Meta annual meetings to support shareholder resolutions that the ethics group filed with the companies. Chesser’s remarks at the meetings today will focus on the shareholder resolutions NLPC filed targeting the ‘woke’ corporations’ lobbying activity and charitable donations. NLPC seeks more transparency, urging companies to protect shareholder interests by staying out of politics. NLPC has filed dozens of shareholder resolutions and appeared at the annual meetings of Berkshire Hathaway, Disney, Coca-Cola, and more. Additional resolutions are scheduled to be presented at the meetings for McDonald’s, Walmart, Alphabet, General Motors, and others. “Big-Tech leaders act like they know what is best for everyone and assume power by censoring information or supporting causes that are contrary to shareholder interests,” Chesser explained. “Corporate leaders cave to progressive political activists and support ‘woke’ causes that must be disclosed, but moreover, eventually put to an end.” In support of the Twitter shareholder proposal, Chesser plans to say that, “…Twitter wasted more than $1.7 million in 2021 on advocacy lobbying, tripling what it spent six years earlier. Twitter is all about ideology, not free speech, or profit. It is no wonder so many Twitter employees are terrified that Elon Musk is buying the company and plans to turn their lying, progressive playground into a true free-speech platform…” In remarks at the Amazon meeting, Chesser will point out that “Amazon's transparency about its charitable donations is vague at best, and opaque at worst.” He will share how Amazon funded the unaccountable, wild-spending Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation at Chairman Jeff Bezos’s direction. “While many of us in middle America saw right through it, Princeton-educated Jeff Bezos fell for the con hook, line and sinker,” Chesser will say. At the Meta meeting Chesser plans to compare Facebook shareholders to mother of a rebellious teenager. “Unfortunately, Mr. Zuckerberg, currently obsessed with virtual reality while shareholder value tanks, is the equivalent of that teenager. And with the equivalent of well over 50 percent of voting shares, this teenager can do whatever the heck he wants. Shareholders are the helpless Mom,” Chesser plans to say. Chesser will point out Zuckerberg’s hypocrisy by censoring scientific truths about climate change alarmism, throttling of the Hunter Biden laptop story, and keeping COVID-19 information off the platform. “The Big Tech leaders were bamboozled by the BLM scammers and Hunter Biden protectionists. They refuse to admit they were wrong, and must be held accountable,” Chesser said. “Twitter, Amazon, Meta, and others in corporate America stand in stark contrast to the economic interests of the American people. Corporate leaders must be stopped from undermining the very systems that created the wealth they enjoy today.” All of Paul Chesser’s remarks at the three meetings will be posted at http://www.nlpc.org this afternoon.

Provana Partners with The iA Institute to Address Needs of Credit & Collections Industry

Provana

The iA Institute, publisher of insideARM, the premier publication for the credit & collections industry, and Provana, provider of the industry’s first unified platform for compliance and performance management, today announced a broad partnership to enhance the support both firms deliver to industry participants. As part of the partnership, Provana is making significant investments into iA Institute programs, including Research Assistant, Innovation Council, Consumer Relations Consortium, and Women in Consumer Finance, with a goal of bringing additional value to its members and expanding the membership. “Provana is a predominant industry player in credit and collections when it comes to its breadth and depth of products and global delivery model for businesses operating in these markets,” said Stephanie Eidelman, CEO of The iA Institute. “We are pleased to collaborate with the Provana team to extend the charter of our programs and better serve industry players.” “The iA Institute is a leading voice in the consumer finance market, especially pertaining to the regulatory hurdles of the full debt lifecycle,” said Sandeep Bhargava, CEO of Provana. “This partnership reinforces our mission to become a one-stop compliance and performance solution, providing digital capabilities, global delivery and thought leadership that raises the bar of competition in a way that benefits consumer finance industry participants.” There are a number of ways The iA Institute and Provana plan to create value for the industry. One way in particular is through the Research Assistant program, which provides a forum for compliance practitioners to solve challenges together as a peer group. The group not only includes practical compliance tools and regular analysis, but it also develops meaningful peer-built content based on tangible experience, which Provana will make available to subscribers though its own compliance management platform. “We look forward to taking an active part in the forums managed by The iA Institute,” said Britney Schaeffer, Director of Content Programs at Provana. “Provana has a rich heritage of thought leadership in solving compliance and performance issues for credit & collections businesses. We believe we can bring valuable new thinking to the Innovation Council and to compliance-related discussions.” “With Provana’s knowledgebase of industry processes and data, we anticipate Provana’s contribution in our Research Assistant program to help our subscribers a great deal,” said Aaron Steinberg, Chief Growth Officer of The iA Institute. “Provana brings a passion for leadership that puts women at the decision-making table, which means they will also have a lot to contribute in the Women in Consumer Finance forum.” Overall, the goal of the partnership is not only to create value for current iA Institute and Provana subscribers, but to deliver that same value to a broader base of industry constituents, including banks, fintechs, specialty finance players, and other enterprises that provide financing of their products and services to consumers. Many longtime industry participants have expressed positive sentiment about the partnership and its long-term implications for the consumer finance industry. “I have worked productively with both organizations for multiple years,” said Marian Sangalang, Vice President at The Bureaus, Inc. “With the changes in the regulatory and economic environment around our industry, I can think of no better time for these key players in our space to take their collaboration to the next level.” “The consumer finance industry is long overdue for a partnership of this nature,” said LaDonna Bohling, Chief Compliance Officer at Contract Callers, Inc.. “The lines between traditional creditors, their collections networks, and new tech-first creditors are blurring in the eyes of industry regulators. A thoughtful collaboration between two leading content and tech providers will help our industry raise the game for everyone involved.” About The iA Institute The iA Institute is a media company that specializes in providing context, insight, and practical information to the complex debt industry.
