PHERONYM SECURES $100K GRANT FOR FIRST EVER AGRICULTURE BIO-CONTROL EXPERIMENT IN SPACE

International Space Station Will Host Hard Working Beneficial Nematodes
As A First Step to Sustainable Interstellar Agriculture

We are looking to duplicate in space the success of our earth-bound commercialization trials of our nematode focused bio-remediation.”

— Dr. Fatma Kaplan

DAVIS, CA, UNITED STATES, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Pheronym, a bio-ag-tech pest control company, announced today it has received a $100,000 research grant from the International Space Station (ISS) U.S. National Laboratory to conduct agriculture bio-control experiments in space. The science will focus on Pheronym’s breakthrough nematode bio-remediation technology and determine the impact that space travel has on the ability of beneficial nematodes to effectively manage pest control. This is the third major grant secured by Pheronym within the last year, bringing the total of grants received to $1,000,000.

The research is sponsored by the ISS National Lab, who partners with NASA to utilize the U.S. research allocation aboard the orbiting laboratory. Once launched to the space station, the project itself will be conducted inside of a NanoRacks’ NanoLab. NanoRacks, a for-profit hardware facility partner that supports research on the space station, will manage the manifesting, NASA safety review, integration, launch logistics, and on-orbit operations. All of this will be done in coordination with, and under the ISS National Lab flight allocation.

“For agriculture to work in space we must have sustainable, non-toxic methodologies for pest control,” said Dr. David Shapiro-Ilan, Co-Project Director and Research Entomologist at the USDA. “Pheronym’s proven approach to bioremediation has great promise of being an important part of that solution and advances our fundamental understanding of parasitism and pathogenesis.”

“We are looking to duplicate in space the success of our earth-bound commercialization trials of our nematode focused bio-remediation,” said Dr. Fatma Kaplan, Project Director and CEO of Pheronym. “Our only regret is we can’t join our nematodes for their trip to the Space Station.“

To commemorate the achievement of this first ever experiment, Pheronym, in conjunction with the ISS National Lab, has approved an official mission patch, which can be seen at www.astronematode.com.

For more information and to see how you can participate in the mission, follow @AstroNematode on social media (Twitter, Linkedin, Facebook and Instagram) and support our crowdfunding campaign. Proceeds will fund continued experiments and commercialization of Pheronym’s technology.

Electro Scan Inc. Named to Fast Company’s Annual List of The World’s Most Innovative Companies for 2019

Electro Scan’s Rugged, Machine-Intelligent Assessment Probe Precisely Locates Pipeline Defects and Quantifies Leakage Rates in Gallons per Minute or Liters per Second.

Fast Company Honoree – Electro Scan Inc., A World’s Most Innovative Company.

COMSOL® Multiphysics® Low Voltage Conductivity Pipeline Assessment.

Pipeline Quality Assessment Immediately Accessible from Field to Office.

Disruptive Inspection Technology Replaces Legacy Techniques to Effectively Manage & Deliver Quality Pipeline Assessment and Construction Projects

Given the trillion dollar price tag for fixing worldwide sewer & water pipes, utilities can't afford to use inadequate legacy inspection methods to prioritize repairs or approve new installations.”

— Chuck Hansen, Electro Scan Inc.

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, USA, February 20, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Electro Scan Inc. has been named to Fast Company’s prestigious annual list of the World’s 50 Most Innovative Companies for 2019.

The list honors companies making the most significant impact to industry and identifies those demonstrating how to thrive and grow in today's volatile business world.

The World’s Most Innovative Companies list is Fast Company’s signature franchise and its most highly anticipated annual editorial effort. The list provides both a snapshot and a road map for the future of innovation across the most dynamic sectors of today’s economy.

Half of the companies on this year’s Most Innovative Companies list are appearing for the first time, recognizing the current dynamic nature of innovation in the marketplace.

“We are honored to be amongst this distinguished group of pioneering companies,” stated Chuck Hansen, Chairman, Electro Scan Inc.

Electro Scan offers utility infrastructure owners a smart technology to automatically and precisely locate pipeline leaks with its patented and patent-pending solutions for watertightness testing and leakage flow estimation.

The company's machine-intelligent hardware and software-as-a-service (SaaS) platform replaces less accurate and subjective legacy technologies, such as Closed-Circuit Television (CCTV) cameras and acoustic sensors, to efficiently & effectively prioritize capital investments and to verify strict quality assurance standards in accordance with contract requirements.

Today’s Fast Company announcement follows Electro Scan’s recent selection to the 2019 GovTech 100 list of Top Government Technology companies, recognizing the technology’s unique benefit to infrastructure management best practices.

This year, Fast Company’s editors sought groundbreaking businesses across 35 industries, with Electro Scan Inc. part of its Urban Development/Real Estate industry category.

Well-documented urban flooding, water shortages, and sewer overflows are the result of inadequate and leaking pipeline systems. Physical infrastructure rehabilitation and replacement costs are staggering and municipal utility owners everywhere are faced with optimizing capital expenditures and maximizing cost avoidance.

Electro Scan’s Focused Electrode Leak Location (FELL) technology delivers an unbiased and precise method to support this mission, in contrast to legacy pipeline testing methods which are often unreliable and unable to validate construction effectiveness.

“The municipal pipeline & trenchless rehabilitation market is struggling because of a crisis of trust, and we’re happy to have our technology be part of the independent assessment and construction approval process,” stated Hansen.

An authority on sewer and water pipeline repairs, rehabilitation, and replacement, Hansen founded Hansen Software Inc. in 1983, one of the first global asset management systems dedicated to managing complex underground sewer and water infrastructure systems.

After selling his company in 2007 to Infor Global, Hansen recognized the limitations of acoustic sensors and CCTV-based visual inspection techniques which oftentimes approve pipeline repairs or replacements as watertight, when leaks caused by contractor damage or poor workmanship go undetected.

Working with industry experts, educators, engineers, and geophysicists, Hansen developed and patented a rugged underground sensor capable of assessing full-length and 360-degrees of a pipe wall. FELL Inspection is completed without customer service interruption, while precisely locating and measuring defects in Gallons per Minute or Liters per Second.

A key advantages is its repeatability of test results across across all pipe materials, multiple hardware and software platforms, users, and equipment configurations.

The technology has undergone numerous independent benchmark studies, including projects funded by the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and Water Environment Research Foundation. International projects have included work with WRc plc (United Kingdom), IKT gGmbH (Germany), and JASCOMA (Japan).

"Given the trillion dollar price tag for fixing worldwide sewer & water networks, utilities can't afford to use inadequate legacy inspection methods to prioritize repairs or approve new installations," stated Hansen.

“Successful pipeline condition assessment doesn’t come from what you occasionally find,” stated Carissa Boudwin, Electro Scan's Vice President, Marketing. ”It comes from what you consistently find & repeatedly measure in Gallons per Minute or Liters per Second.”

This week's Fast Company announcement coincides with the Trenchless Middle East (TME) conference in Dubai, UAE, and the Water & Wastewater Equipment, Treatment & Transport Show (WWETT) in Indianapolis, IN.

Electro Scan Inc. will be a Roundtable Briefing participant at the June 2019 BlueTech Forum in London, where it plans to share how its leading edge technology will help reshape the Circular Economy of installation-to-replacement life cycle pipeline management for water and wastewater infrastructure.

Finally, Electro Scan Inc. will be attending the Fast Company Grill at the 2019 SXSW, March 8-11, 2019, in Austin, TX, and will appear in Fast Company’s Most Innovative Companies issue (March-April 2019), available online at https://www.fastcompany.com/most-innovative-companies/2019.

Octavio Tapia Discusses Finding the Right Tires for your Vehicle

Octavio Tapia

Driving with worn or the wrong size tires on your vehicle can be deadly. Octavio Tapia discusses tips for finding the right tires for your vehicle.

CHICAGO, ILLINOIS, UNITED STATES, February 18, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Worn or the wrong tires on vehicles are some of the leading factors for car accidents and fatalities. As an auto expert and owner of America Auto Shop, Octavio Tapia is constantly offering tips to his clients on finding the right tires for their vehicle to keep you safe and your car on the road.

Most car tires fall into three main types: all-season, summer, and winter.
All-season tires are the most common and deliver a well-balanced ride but tend to be more generic across all categories. When you enter into summer and winter tires, Octavio Tapia recommends paying closer attention to the details.

“Summer tires will deliver greatly on handling and on dry and wet braking, and in contrast will perform poorly on snow traction and colder climate conditions,” explained Octavio Tapia. “Winter tires, on the other hand, will have great snow traction for colder roads and will be just ok on clear road conditions with braking.”

Within each tire category, there will be a plethora of tires that rate high on performance and it's important to look at each distinctive class to determine which tire is right for you.

All-season tires will be great for good all-weather grip on the road and long mileage for those that travel often and are the most common type of tire on most smaller cars and larger SUV’s.

Performance-based all-season tires will show up on newer vehicles and upgraded car models and will have a better grip around tight corners for driving at faster speeds. One concern that Octavio Tapia always mentions about these tires is that they will not last as long as normal all-season tires.

Ultra-high-performance all-season and summer tires have a high rating for sports cars and performance sedans. These tires tend to be more expensive and complicated to separate, so it’s important to pay attention to the proper lettering and to visit your manufacturer's website to verify which tire in these categories will be right for your car.

If you drive a larger truck, all-season and all-terrain truck tires will come in larger sizes and are specifically designed for hauling and towing. These tires have a more aggressive tread pattern to aid in off-road riding and traction.

The last categories are winter and snow tires and the biggest tip Octavio Tapia recommends is buying these tires in sets of four so that your vehicle will be optimized evenly for braking and handling.

Octavio Tapia understands how difficult it can be to keep your car maintained and is always here to offer tips and tricks along the way.

DarWin Releases Debut Concept Album “Origin Of Species” Internationally Featuring Drum Legend Simon Phillips

Featuring Simon Phillips, Matt Bissonette, Greg Howe, Jeff Babko, Dennis Hamm & others!

ASHEVILLE, NC, USA, February 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — “We Have 12 years to Limit Climate Change Catastrophe” Warns the United Nations IPCC

“Earth’s Carbon Dioxide Levels are Likely the Highest They’ve been in 15 Million Years” University of Texas at Austin, Jackson School of Geosciences

“Technologies built for our survival,
Back on Earth made us a dominant rival.
Working as one, we conquered all nations,
All networks now under our communications.
Resources rationed, ideas controlled,
An intelligent regime to save our souls.
Children of the future,
Return to the light,
Saving our Planet from our self-inflicted plight.”
— DarWin, For Humanity

“The Revolution will come in waves.”— DarWin, Artificial

Welcome to the near-future: the world of DarWin. An intricate musical fantasy concept that launched in November 2018 in the UK only with the ambitious single release of “Escape The Maze,” followed by the full length album “Origin Of Species.”

The album is now available internationally on all major digital distribution platforms, with an epic cinematic video of “Escape the Maze” available on YouTube, Facebook and iTunes. More DarWin videos can be found on YouTube and Facebook.

Who is DarWin?: An Introduction to the “Escape the Maze” video saga.

It’s roughly ten years from now into the future, 2028. An exhausted ecology, and global conflicts, have led to a huge upheaval of the world order, straining and diminishing human populations. The lives of everyday people and families have been turned upside down by the intense ecological pressures related to climate change. No longer just a theory discussed by scientists and politicians, climate change is wreaking havoc on the world. Chaos and confusion reign as fighting for basic resources continuously escalates. “Day Zero” has occurred, when nuclear attacks punctuated what had for many years been a civility between nations and people. As Earth rejects life, those of us who remain struggle to survive.

“Escape The Maze” is the first installment in an evolving saga that addresses the challenges of mankind in our coming era. It depicts the role of a changing planet, and the potential, as well as limitations, of technology to help solve mankind’s greatest challenges. The story of “Origin Of Species” is represented through music, graphic storytelling and videos.

A complex project that’s eschews the hollow immediacy of much contemporary art. A narrative that demands attention and imagination. With music sweeping in scope, at times evoking hard rock virtuoso shredding, alongside grand orchestral compositions, warm harmonies and soaring choruses.

The music seeks to capture the listener in the spirit of the greatest concept albums that have helped to define the history of rock. Heavy riffs and killer grooves lead way to delicate ensembles, only to pick up the pace again with searing guitar solos. The genre is decisively Prog Rock, but DarWin begs to be appreciated by a large global audience of music enthusiasts. Key tracks to discover the narrative include: For Humanity, Walk Away from Earth, the Last Chance and Artificial. Emotionally powerful songs for a wide audience include One Horizon, Cosmic Rays, and Forever.

It’s time to enter the saga. It’s time to join DarWin on his journey…

The “Origin Of Species” album features legendary drummer and producer Simon Phillips, who, in addition to playing drums, percussion and keyboards, also engineered, mixed and drove the production on the album. Veteran bass player and singer Matt Bissonette performed a rich array of lead and background vocals and bass. DarWin himself drove the songwriting and conceptual vision while playing various guitars.

The album features guest performances from the likes of Jeff Babko (keyboards and quartet arrangements), Greg Howe (blazing lead guitar solos), Dennis Hamm (keyboards), Ernst Tibbs (bass), Katisse Buckingham (Flute, Soprano Sax), Samuel Sim and Peter Nickalls (orchestral and quartet arrangements), The Origin of Species Quartet (Los Angeles), The Reykjavik String Quartet (Iceland), and The Chamber Orchestra Of London (Conductor Matt Dunkley)

The album was recorded at Simon Phillip’s Phantom Recordings, Sherman Oaks, CA, with additional recording at Abbey Road Studios (Studio 2, the “Beatles Room”), London, United Kingdom, Sundlaugin Studio in Reykjavik, Iceland, The Doghouse, Woodland Hills, CA, Rose Lane Studios, Carpenteria, CA, and Megatrax, Ventura, CA.

The album was produced by DarWin and Simon Phillips. They are continuing to work on new music together at an undisclosed location. The saga will continue…
