RELATIENT, Uber, Ibeza, and Beraja Medical Institite (BMI) Team Up to Increase Access to Health Care in South Florida

Partnership Kicks Off With Rides to Health Care Appointments at Beraja Medical Institute (BMI) in South Florida

Miami, FL — (ReleaseWire) — 02/06/2017 — RELATIENT, Uber, Ibeza and Beraja Medical Institute (BMI) Miami-based healthcare organization announced today new technical integrations aimed at increasing access to healthcare by overcoming the barrier that annually prevents approximately 3.6 million Americans from receiving health care which is the lack of transportation.

Through this partnership, Beraja Medical Institute (BMI) will launch the Ride to Health with the Uber app fully integrated into text and email messages to patients delivered by RELATIENT. Such messages include appointment reminders; follow up care coordination, patient balance information and preventative care prompts – such as reminding a patient to take his medicines before the surgery.

Plus, in Ride to Health, while riding to their appointment in an Uber, patients will receive a message to check in Beraja Medical Institute (BMI), so that all necessary paperwork is complete when they arrive. And they will receive a link to a patient satisfaction survey to complete on their ride home.

In honor of the integration, RELATIENT, Uber, Ibeza, and Beraja Medical Institute will offer a “Ride To Health,” which will start on Thursday February 9, 2017. Sam Johnson, RELATIENT CEO, Santiago Rivera MD, Ibeza & BMI CEO and Kevin Montgomery, RELATIENT CIO and many others leaders in healthcare technology will be leading the “Go Live” event at BMI this week. “Patients who miss medical appointments or have to reschedule at the last minute frequently cite transportation as a factor.”

BMI & Ibeza’s CEO, Santiago Rivera, noted that the integration with RELATIENT, and Uber could significantly decrease the high cost of missed appointments, as well as removing the negative impact that a missed appointment has on an individual’s health outcomes.”Missed appointments lead to risks that could be averted. According to the National Commission on Prevention Priorities, 100,000 people die each year because of lack of access to preventative care services, like screenings for hypertension, cholesterol and certain cancers. There’s no doubt that solving the transportation problem will save lives. It will also mean more financially sound health organizations. For example, it’s not unusual for a doctor to average four missed appointments per day, about $150,000 in lost revenue per doctor every year. For large medical practices, this quickly adds up to millions of dollars.”

About RELATIENT
Based in Nashville, Tennessee – an axis of healthcare innovation – RELATIENT offers the only complete, app free and login free patient relationship and engagement communication platform. The company integrates text messaging, email, and automated voice to ensure reliable, coordinated communication with patients. Its cloud-based platform works with virtually any electronic health record system in use today.

About Uber
Uber’s mission is to make transportation as reliable as running water—everywhere, for everyone. We started in 2010 to solve a simple problem: how do you get a ride at the touch of a button? Six years and over a billion trips later, we’ve started tackling an even greater challenge: reducing congestion and pollution in our cities by getting more people into fewer cars.

Nevada Clean Magnesium Enters Into Memorandum of Understanding with Big Blue Technologies LLC

Tickers: PINX:MLYFF, XTSX:NVM
Tags: Mining

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA / TheNewswire / February 06, 2017 – Nevada Clean Magnesium, Inc. (TSXV:NVM; Frankfurt-M1V; OTC Pink Sheets: MLYFF) (the “Company” or “NCM”) is pleased to announce it has entered into a binding Memorandum of Understanding (“MOU”) for the purposes of forming a technical joint venture with Big Blue Technologies LLC (“BBT”), of Broomfield, Colorado, USA.

BBT is a closely-held limited liability company engaged in developing high temperature chemical processing solutions to aid in the manufacture of magnesium and other light-weight high performance materials. BBT is collaborating and expanding on research performed at the University of Colorado at Boulder on carbothermic reduction (the “BBT Process”), the subject of two patent applications. BBT has the right to receive a license to use of these patents, and derivative patents, on an exclusive basis.

NCM, primarily through the auspices of James Sever, has acted as a mentor to BBT and its three principals in their efforts to develop the BBT Process. Both parties desire to cooperate in the development, testing and improvement of safe, environmentally sound and cost-effective methods for the production of magnesium for their mutual benefit, following which they intend to work together to produce magnesium metal from the resource property owned by NCM, as set forth in a definitive agreement to be completed on or before August 1, 2017.

Both parties intend to work together to further develop the NCM Process, the BBT Process and the Alpha Condenser, also in accordance with the Definitive Agreement.

Therefore both Parties have agreed to the following within the MOU:

  1. 1.BBT and NCM’s technical teams will collaborate to enhance each others’ respective processes in order to try and achieve successful commercialization for earlier cash flow

  2. 2.NCM will be BBT’s industry partner

  3. 3.NCM to provide BBT board positions and stock options

  4. 4.NCM will have first right of refusal to exclusivity and licensing of the BBT process

  5. 5.The BBT principals will provide their grant writing abilities to NCM for potential research grants and US loan guarantees that are available for new magnesium metal projects within the United States

  6. 6.NCM, through a revenue share agreement, will grant access of the Tami-Mosi magnesium property to BBT in order to commercialized its process

  7. 7.NCM will issue 15% of the Company’s total common shares issued as of January 1, 2017 to BBT released at increments of 5% per year over a 3 year period.

Aaron Palumbo, CEO of BBT states “Nevada Clean Magnesium has exhibited nothing but the highest order of integrity with respect to its pursuit of magnesium production. We are honored to be a part of a project that aligns with our own vision and values. Together, our intellectual capital will be used to show how the U.S. can be a leader in production of this industrial light metal.”

James Sever, the Company’s COO states “The work that BBT has demonstrated is a unique approach to the carbothermic reduction process. Successful implementation will revolutionize the magnesium production industry through a significant reduction in cost. In addition, access to BBT personnel will strengthen NCM by providing access to an ambitious, capable young intellectual reserve. This should keep our Company ahead of the curve for many decades.”

Edward Lee CEO says “This is a natural fit for both companies looking to produce magnesium metal within the United States. Our combined talents and assets fit perfectly with Americas’ goal to repatriate industry to the US from overseas. Over the past few decades, primary magnesium production in the US has declined from 65% of world supply to approximately 6%. This exciting partnership between NCM and BBT will help America achieve its goals.”

The MOU is subject to approval from the TSX Venture Exchange.

Gran Tierra Energy Inc. Announces Approval of Normal Course Issuer Bid

/EINPresswire.com/ — CALGARY, ALBERTA–(Marketwired – Feb 6, 2017) – Gran Tierra Energy Inc. (“Gran Tierra”) (NYSE MKT:GTE)(TSX:GTE), a company focused on oil and gas exploration and production in Colombia today announces that it has received approval from the Toronto Stock Exchange (“TSX“) to implement its previously announced normal course issuer bid (the “Bid“) through the facilities of the TSX, the NYSE MKT and eligible alternative trading platforms in Canada and the United States. Pursuant to the Bid, Gran Tierra is able to purchase for cancellation up to 5% of its issued and outstanding shares of common stock (the “Shares“) for a one year period at prevailing market prices. The brokerage firm conducting the Bid on behalf of Gran Tierra is GMP FirstEnergy, with respect to purchases made on the TSX, and Griffiths McBurney Corp., with respect to purchases made on the NYSE MKT.

Under the Bid, Gran Tierra may repurchase for cancellation up to 19,540,359 Shares. This represents approximately 5% of its 390,807,191 issued and outstanding Shares as of January 27, 2017. These purchases will be made in accordance with applicable regulations over a maximum period of one year beginning on February 8, 2017 and ending on February 7, 2018. The average daily trading volume of the Shares over the six calendar months prior to the date hereof was 1,214,973. Accordingly, Gran Tierra is entitled to purchase, on any trading day, up to 303,743 Shares. The consideration that Gran Tierra will pay for any Shares acquired by it under the Bid will be paid in cash at the market price of such Shares at the time of acquisition.

The Management of Gran Tierra believes that the Shares, at times, have been trading in a price range which does not adequately reflect their value in relation to Gran Tierra’s current operations, growth prospects and financial position. At such times, the purchase of Shares for cancellation may be advantageous to stockholders by increasing the value of the remaining Shares.

About Gran Tierra Energy Inc.

“I’m inspired by the spirit of service that the Jefferson Awards Foundation brings to people throughout our nation,” said Mr. Sanberg. “On the platform we’ve constructed over the past forty five years, the Foundation’s most meaningful contributions are on the horizon. I’m excited to work with our incoming Chairman, Jack Russi, who is an extraordinary and mission-driven leader.”

A passion for strengthening communities and powering youth leaders has long driven Mr. Russi to give back. Mr. Russi and Deloitte were instrumental in developing the Jefferson Awards Foundation’s youth leadership programs — Students in Action, GlobeChangers and LEAD360 — reflecting Mr. Russi’s unique ability to guide the organization toward greater impact. He also brings more than 33 years of experience at Deloitte, where he is responsible within the Deloitte U.S. firms for merger and acquisition activities, divestiture of underperforming assets or services and accelerating growth of specific market opportunities.

“Joe has been an outstanding leader, and I am both honored and excited to succeed him,” stated Mr. Russi. “I also look forward to his continued passion in helping the Jefferson Awards Foundation realize its remarkable potential. We already touch more than 100 million Americans each year, and by further energizing our nation around service — especially through youth leadership — I believe five years from now our impact will reverberate through every American household.”

The transition occurs at a historic moment for the Jefferson Awards Foundation, which celebrated its 45th anniversary this past December. A force multiplier of public service, the nonprofit has grown tremendously under Mr. Sanberg’s leadership and is now primed to impact more lives than ever before with Mr. Russi as Chairman.

Barracuda Accelerates Customer Cloud Transitions with New ‘Cloud Ready’ Program

 

• Barracuda’s new “Cloud Ready” program accelerates customers’ ability to move applications and workloads to the cloud by providing 90-day trial licenses for use in their choice of Amazon Web Services and Microsoft Azure.
• With the “Cloud Ready” program, customers that purchase a new on-premises Barracuda Web Application Firewall or Barracuda NextGen Firewall can receive a cloud license to deploy the same solution in AWS and Azure at no additional cost for up to 90 days.
• Barracuda’s “Cloud Ready” program enables customers to sample cloud for their new and/or existing workloads, without the burden of having to determine where or how to allocate security resources.

Barracuda today announced its new “Cloud Ready” program designed to help organizations securely extend their workloads and applications into cloud environments. With each new purchase of an on-premises Barracuda NextGen Firewall or Barracuda Web Application Firewall including both physical and virtual deployments Barracuda provides a cloud license for the same solution in Amazon Web Services (AWS) and Microsoft Azure (Azure) at no additional cost for up to 90 days. Leveraging Barracuda’s cloud-enabled security suite, organizations can deploy their applications and workloads securely with the same powerful capabilities and intuitive user interface whether deployed on-premises or in the cloud.

“In the burgeoning cloud era, IT buyers are in the difficult position of trying to meet the computing needs of today while determining where the compute environment will live over the next few years,” said BJ Jenkins, CEO, Barracuda. “With our “Cloud Ready” program, Barracuda helps to simplify that process. We are empowering customers to make the right decisions for their businesses today, while enabling them to begin sampling cloud with new or existing workloads secured with leading-edge application security and firewall technology.”

Growing Cloud Adoption & Bridge-to-Cloud
Global spending on cloud infrastructure is estimated to grow from $50 billion in 2016 to more than $228 billion by 2026. As many organizations look to leverage cloud resources, operating in a hybrid architecture is often a necessary part of cloud adoption. As a result, most IT organizations are trying to determine how their traditional on-premises infrastructure will work when they start leveraging cloud resources, as well as what to put where, what works best in which environment, or what may need to be kept on-premises. At the same time, security remains a top concern and often a significant burden on under-resourced IT departments.

“While evaluating, implementing and managing security has always been difficult, it has been made more so in the cloud era,” said Michael Osterman, president and principal analyst, Osterman Research. “Offerings like Barracuda’s ‘Cloud Ready’ program gives customers a way to leverage cloud resources and not worry about how they might allocate security resources. This program is particularly interesting for IT decision makers deciding what to manage on-premises, in the cloud, or using both delivery models in a hybrid approach.”

Barracuda has a proven history and a reputation built on successfully helping customers transform their businesses in the on-prem world with competitive pricing, innovative packaging and simplified processes. In the spirit of continuing to make IT simple, secure and affordable for customers, Barracuda’s “Cloud Ready” program offers a path for organizations to adopt cloud infrastructures.

“Barracuda’s built our business around simplicity,” commented Michael Hughes, senior vice president, Worldwide Sales, Barracuda. “We’ve designed our business model to make things easy for customers to leverage advanced security technology for their businesses. Our ‘Cloud Ready’ program is a great example of this philosophy, giving customers the flexibility, choice and freedom to begin cloud deployments without upfront costs.”
