Emil Malak Pens an Op-ed: New antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K; Focus should be on testing

Emil Malak, CEO Voip-Pal, well versed in global politics, culture and health

CEOCFO Magazine logo

There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines.”

— Emil Malak

LONDON, ENGLAND, November 30, 2020 / — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed ( by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In February of this year (2020), just as the world was waking up to the news that people were fleeing Wuhan China, headed to worldwide destinations with the deadly coronavirus, Mr. Malak wrote his very first Op-ed on the subject. In the title of his article, “A Global Pandemic Has Already Started” Mr. Malak declared the novel coronavirus to be a worldwide pandemic one month before the World Health Organization did. Since then we have seen several of Mr. Malek’s predictions on the virus come true.

In his most recent op-ed, Mr. Malak discussed the new antibody resistant coronavirus mutation N493K. “The neutralizing antibodies that patients develop after being infected with a virus or following vaccination are not proving to be effective against this new mutant. The N439K mutation so-far is proving to be resistant to antibodies.

He continued, “N439K has already been identified in twelve countries and is increasing infection rates in the United States and Europe. As a result, within the next four weeks we could potentially see death rates increase. Authors of a recent study on the new coronavirus mutant conclude their findings could have consequences, not only on the efficacy of emerging vaccines but also the efficacy of antibody therapeutics.”

With studies such as the one by The University of Vermont Medical Center yet to be done, Mr. Malak who is very pro-vaccine and believes they save lives cautioned, “I have the utmost respect for politicians on both sides of the aisle that have dedicated their efforts into eradicating the coronavirus. One of the challenges is there are still too many unknowns before we can roll out a safe vaccine solution. Do neutralizing antibodies indeed vanish within a few months? Will antibody dependent enhancement (ADE) put those vaccinated in danger? Could a vaccinated person, thinking they are immune to COVID-19 become an asymptomatic carrier and spread the virus? How many doses of the vaccine will people need per year? Some suggest three of four doses per year to be safe. What about side effects? Will spike protein mutations complicate matters?”

Malak has repeatedly warned in his op-eds over the past nine months about the need to gather adequate data of at least two years before allowing a vaccine to go to the market. Recalling the mistakes of the 1960’s Thalidomide tragedy that led to tens of thousands of children born with birth defects, Malak wrote, “We need to learn from these tragedies and never repeat the same mistakes. Rushing into any drug or vaccine could lead to catastrophic consequences.”

Pointing to a study by Danish researches, Mr. Malak discusses another concern in the possibility that today’s vaccine may not work tomorrow because of virus mutation, “Researchers have documented at least two mutations of the coronavirus. In one instance the genetic sequence within the spike protein changed the position of the “614 G” aspartic acid (contains an amino acid and a carboxylic acid) to an “amino acid glycine.” That single change within the spike protein created a new COVID-19-2.0, far more contagious and deadly than the original. The second mutation was recently discovered in the mink farms of Denmark; two amino acid mutations within the spike protein. It is valid to question whether a vaccine would be effective after a mutation takes place in the spike protein. We do not know when, nor how frequently a mutation will take place, rendering the vaccine ineffective each time. Another important question that needs to be answered is how effective any COVID-19 vaccine will be on a mutated strain of the virus; a COVID-2.0.”

Mr. Malak continues, “As a result of this new virus all of Denmark’s 17 million farmed minks in their 400 mink farms are being destroyed and 240 or more mink farm workers are currently infected. This latest development provides even more reason why the focus should be on developing more effective therapeutics,” said Mr. Malak.

Mr. calls for what he calls, “The hammer and the dance” – for a new non-political task force. “It is necessary to form a national scientific advisory committee that is free from all political influence. The committee would provide two televised updates per week to advise the public of the facts regarding the coronavirus, its spread and what actions need to be taken by each state.”

Below is Mr. Malak’s proposal:
The Hammer – Europe is headed back to total lockdown, referred to as the “hammer” because of the resurgence of coronavirus cases. The virus is back in Europe vigorously, leading government officials to once again shutdown their economies. This radical action will be devastating to businesses and to the overall mental and physical health of Europeans and will hopefully be limited to a very short period.

The Dance – During the hammer period certain actions must be taken to get people back to work:
1. There is an urgent need for continuous testing every three days as well as making COVID-19 testing more widely available through innovative means such as testing vending machines that provide rapid results in one minute. Those that test negative are free to go to work, restaurants and live their lives normally. Those who test positive will seek medical attention and self-quarantine. More simple, rapid self-testing kits are needed.
2. Reconfigure workplaces providing the means for social distancing, disinfectants and mask wearing indoors.
3. Limit the size of indoor gatherings.
4. Indoor locations like restaurants, bars, and conference centers etc. could be retrofitted with air conditioning systems that burn out the virus during circulation cycles.
5. Close down tattoo parlors, massage parlors and prostitution businesses. Those with addictions should be treated in proper medical facilities.

People that do not adjust to the new norms necessary to deal with the virus will be leaving themselves vulnerable to potential infection and risks associated with the virus which includes death.

Malak, who has many years of experience dealing with the U.S. patent system hinted he may be writing a future article on the current state of patents in the United States saying, “Unfortunately, owning a U.S. patent today can be meaningless. It is no longer an asset but a liability.”

Direct Fed Microbial Market is Generating Revenue of $1.77 Billion by 2026, at CAGR 7.5% Growth Rate

Direct Fed Microbial

The demand for direct-fed microbial is on a rise, owing to surge in awareness toward improvement of animal health worldwide.

Rise in animal healthcare expenditure leads to easy availability of direct-fed microbial, which fuels the market growth”

— Mangesh Panhale

PORTLAND, OR, UNITED STATES, November 30, 2020 / — The global direct fed microbial market size was valued at $980 million in 2018, and is expected to reach $1,772 million by 2026, registering a CAGR of 7.5% from 2019 to 2026.

Direct-fed microbial contains live bacterial strains that help in the growth and development of animals. These beneficial organisms are replacing the use of antibiotics. However, due to the risk of development of antimicrobial-resistant organisms, the use of antibiotics as growth promoters for animal production has been banned. The administration of direct-fed microbial help to enhance the meat and milk production in animals such as cattle and poultry. In addition, these products modulate the immune response of animals and inhibit the growth of pathogenic organisms in the gastrointestinal tract of animals.

To Get the Sample Copy of Report Visit @

Increase in demand for meat & milk consumption and rise in profitability at same cost are the major factors driving the market growth of direct fed microbial market. Furthermore, significant surge in human population and increase in demand for protein content in the diet propel the market growth for direct-fed microbial. In addition, probiotics aid nutrient absorption by breaking down the complex compounds, which, in turn, helps to reduce the cost of animal production and increases the profitability of the animal producers. However, enforcement of stringent regulations regarding the vigorous usage of these microorganisms in animal diet and increase in cost of production are the major factors hampering thedirect fed microbial market growth. Conversely, ban on the usage of antibiotics in animal diet in the developed nations such the U.S., Germany, and the UK and rise in animal health concerns are anticipated to offer remunerative opportunities for market expansion in the near future.

The direct fed microbial report offers an in-depth analysis of the Covid-19 impact on various market segments and countries. Moreover, the report offers major market trends and forecasts, considering the Covid-19 situation.

By product, the lactobacillus segment accounted for 62% of the total direct fed microbial market share in 2018, and is expected to exhibit a prominent growth rate in the near future, owing to its increased usage in the livestock diet. Lactobacillus is the most widely used probiotics in the livestock diet, as it is considered safe and more beneficial as compared to the other bacterial species.

For Purchase Enquiry @

By livestock, the poultry segment dominated the direct fed microbial market in 2018, and is anticipated to maintain its dominance during the forecast period. This is attributed to the fact that poultry is the most consumed animal meat across the globe. Furthermore, individuals prefer poultry other than other livestock animals.

By region, North America accounted for the major direct fed microbial market share in 2018 and is expected to continue this trend, owing to easy availability of direct fed microbial products. Moreover, surge in the demand for probiotics and rise in awareness towards maintenance of healthy lifestyle in the region are the major reason that contributes to the growth of this market. On the other side, Asia-Pacific is estimated to register the fastest growth during the forecast period attributed to the increase in awareness regarding the use of direct fed microbial.

SocialBox.Biz Takes Stand Against Digital Exclusion – Helping Organisations Meet Sustainability Goals

London, UK based Community interest company aims to end digital poverty in the UK by 2030

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2020 / — The team at SocialBox.Biz has made their stance known: the community interest company is on a mission to help bring about a digitally included society, and their team is working diligently to make this a reality.

Laptops for Homeless, Refugees, and Older People in isolation initiative from SocialBox.Biz Community Interest Company.

Full story:

Please re-tweet:

Their mission consists of three main goals: to eradicate digital poverty in the UK by the year 2030; to reduce the amount of no longer needed yet usable technology being scraped by organisations; and to revise procurement policies in the UK relating to old technology. According to the team at SocialBox.Biz, "The pandemic and lockdowns have underlined how important technology is to stay connected. We must ensure that vulnerable groups such as the elderly, homeless, and refugees are able to steadily access technology to speak to loved ones, order food and medication online, and continue their education."

Laszlo Balla at C4WS, a SocialBox.Biz partner, said, "COVID-19 has made it very difficult for many charities to maintain the provision of their services, which at times are essential for their users. Without IT devices, people couldn't take part in crucial services. Lockdown also impacts people with mental health issues."

These goals are part of SocialBox.Biz's digital inclusion manifesto, which outlines a series of steps needed to make their mission a reality. The company is working to bring new partners on board to help connect those in need with laptops and make digital inclusion a reality.

Additionally, SocialBox.Biz is calling for an end to the wasteful practice of organisations selling old but still usable technology for scrap, which often gets shipped around the world and adds to our carbon footprint. "The vast majority of old technology can be sustainably reused and placed in the hands of those in need, which in turn will help the UK meet its sustainability goals," said the team at SocialBox.Biz.

Their team is also calling on various groups to introduce guidelines, as well as for the government to introduce legislation to first consider whether old technology from organisations could be donated towards digital exclusion initiatives.

SocialBox.Biz has already worked with numerous organisations over the part years to procure unneeded but still useful technology for reuse and donate that would otherwise be recycled or thrown away. Then, the laptops and tablets are given to local charity partners to be distributed to those in need.

The team at Age UK Wandsworth, a SocialBox.Biz partner, said, "We are so grateful to SocialBox.Biz for the devices that we have received. Digital exclusion is a known issue in the older generation, but this has been exacerbated by COVID-19 when access to public computers has been limited and when so many services and activities have moved online. We have been able to deploy these devices in areas of the borough where older people may not have the means to buy their own equipment and have offered support from our team of ‘Digipals’."

A large number of charities and other stakeholders have joined in this campaign.

SocialBox.Biz continues to forge ahead in breaking down barriers between those in need and digital means. More information can be found at

Vast Self shares a secret with PETA that will end animal farming and more

PETA owns a secret to end animal ownership.

PETA owns a secret to end animal ownership.

Vast Self shares a secret with Peta to end animal ownership.

Vast Self shares a secret with Peta to end animal ownership.

PETA owns a secret to ending animal farming and other unfortunate relationships between humans and animals currently protected by the law.

MOUNT SHASTA, CA, USA, November 30, 2020 / — Vast Self Public Charity announced the sharing of a newfound secret with PETA. This secret will help end animal farming and other unfortunate relationships between humans and animals currently protected by the law. It is a secret beneficial to both humans and animals, blurring the line previously drawn between them.

This secret is based on the fact that the senses of most humans cannot perceive that they and animals are the same self.

All the laws we have were made on the false belief that our senses give us an accurate picture of the world. Today, humans are undoubtedly convinced that all animals possess a separate being (existence, self, life) from them; however, a simple analysis proves animals and humans aren't separate beings (no one possesses own-existence, own-self, own-life). This shocking fact cannot be refuted by science or logic, and that is the secret PETA owns.

Lunda Hardy, a spokesperson for the charity, said: "Current animal ownership is based on the assumption that a human can take ownership of an animal; however, with the new understanding of the deceptive nature of our senses, this is no longer possible. Since human being exists without own-self and animal exists without own-self, there is no owner with own-self who can own anything with a different own-self. Similarly, since animals exist without own-self, there is no entity with own-self that could be own by anybody or anything. Since humans and animals are the same self, no owner or the own can be found in reality beyond the conceptual idea 'human', 'I am an owner', 'animal' and 'you are my property.' So, ownership is only a conceptual idea imposed onto a self by the same self. Once humans grasp at this new discovery, ownership will be unthinkable, as it would be equivalent to one part of your body owning another part of the body with rights over it. Vast Self Charity is willing to pay $100,000 to anyone who can disprove this fact. Ending animal farming by reversing the view that animals can be properly will bring great benefit to humans, animals, and the environment."

Vast Self is a 501(c)(3) public charity #83-1669166 dedicated to showing the world that everlasting peace and happiness is indeed possible and easy to achieve. A new first-rate problem-solving method exists that can reveal and remove the key to all human-made conflicts and sufferings, making any future disputes inconceivable. This solution also guarantees not to interference with people's race, status, religion, philosophy, finances, politics, etc. The resolution to all our worldly struggles lies in understanding that our senses have not shown us how everyone actually exists. Throughout history, such ignorance has been the only obstacle to worldwide peace, compassion, unity, and happiness. But together, we can permanently reverse this.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, November 30, 2020 / — Appreciation of attention to ESG can add up to 10% to companies’ market capitalisation over and above any direct gains according to a latest study from Reputation Dividend.

As investors become increasingly aware of reputational risks, they consider a host of reputational factors, including ‘Corporate Social Responsibility’ and ‘Environmental, Social and Governance’ (ESG) criteria. While not the most important driver of reputation impact, perceptions of ESG prowess can provide a tangible and material boost to market cap. Equally, a perceived lack of attention can cost shareholders dear by creating drains on companies’ reputation assets.

The study finds that overall, positive perceptions of companies’ prowess in the area of ESG across the main indices in the UK and the US are boosting investor confidence to account for close to 3.1% of the gross market capitalisation, $952 billion of shareholder value in the S&P 500 and £44 billion in the FTSE 100. Within that, perceptions of especially high, or low, company performances in ESG can produce value impacts equating to up to 10% of the total market capitalisation.

Top in the UK’s FTSE for ESG contribution to market cap are Sainsbury’s, Unilever, Anglo American, Compass, BHP and GSK. Aston Martin, Centrica, William Hill, Chemring Group and Talk Talk are on the ESG value destruction side.

Top in the US’s S&P for ESG are eBay, Eli Lilly, IBM, Intel, Applied Materials and Intuit. Kraft Heinz, Alaska Air Group, Dupont de Nemours, Monster Beverage and Oracle are on the ESG value destruction side.

According to Sandra Macleod from Reputation Dividend, “Investor perceptions of companies’ ESG performance create value when seen to be strategic and driving transformation. They can also actively destroy value when seen to expose the company to undue risk. And this is where investor activism has started to muscle in. No sector, no region is safe from that fundamental questioning of value-creation or value-destruction.”

“As volatility is set to increase, we see that corporate reputations underpin or drag valuations – markets are becoming more sophisticated in their assessments and more aware of both financial and non-financial risks. Understanding the drivers and contribution of reputations in the mind of in the investment community is now more important than ever,” according to Simon Cole, the firm’s founder.

The full 2021 Reputation Dividend Report will be freely available at in the new year.

Reputation value analysis reveals the economic impact of corporate reputation in order to help companies manage the assets more effectively. It quantifies the tangible financial impact of corporate reputation by making the direct link to market capitalisation and share price performance.

Analysis is a two-stage process. First, the factors that most influence the investment community, and thus the market capitalisations, of individual companies are prioritised using statistical regression analysis of hard financial metrics, including shareholder equity, return on assets, forecast and reported dividend, earnings, liquidity and company betas and reputation measures.

From there, a combination of metrics are calculated, including the gross economic benefit shareholders derive from reputation assets, the location of value across the individual components of companies’ reputations, the extent to which investment in reputation building is likely to produce returns in value growth, and the relative value potential and risk of individual opportunities.

Founded by ex-Interbrand specialists and a team of analysts, Reputation Dividend produces the only recognised measure of the financial value of corporate reputation as a percentage of market capitalisation. The company’s annual Reputation Dividend Report spells out trends and developments in the investment community’s consumption of corporate reputation and how it impacts corporate values based on studies of more than 500 of the largest companies in the US and UK. Clients include AB-InBev, Aetna, Agilent, Airbus, Allstate, Amgen, ARM, Arrow, Bayer, Boston Scientific, eBay, GE, GKN, Hikma, Johnson & Johnson, MetLife, Phillips 66, Serco, Shire, Standard Life, Takeda, United Technologies, Zurich, Xerox.

XD Design launches a new collection of Sustainable backpacks, making a positive impact on the use of water

The backpacks, made from recycled materials, are traceable from the recycling process to the final backpack.

RIJSWIJK, NETHERLANDS, November 30, 2020 / — XD Design launches a new collection of Sustainable backpacks, making a positive impact on the use of water.

The backpacks, made from recycled materials, are traceable from the recycling process to the final backpack.

Water availability is a worldwide issue. The world’s population is growing so fast that by 2025, 50% of the world’s population will experience a lack of sufficient drinking water.

The Dutch backpack brand XD Design decided to make a positive impact on its use of water, and prove it!

The first initiative is to reduce the use of water. To that end, the new collection of backpacks is made from certified recycled materials, thus saving huge amounts of water in the production process.

To ensure that only original feedstock has been used in the products, and thus saving natural resources, the company works with Aware technology.

Aware is a virtual component that authenticates the sustainable content of a final product by using a disruptive tracer and blockchain technology. With Aware, the backpacks will be traceable from the recycling process through to the final product. On average, each sustainable backpack saved 18 liters of water and reused 31 water bottles.

The CEO of XD Design, Albert van der Veen, states that “by working with Aware we can guarantee genuine recycled materials in the final backpack and the real impact claims we make about the reduction in the usage of water. A true sustainable story from start to finish.”

More than just saving water in the production process, XD Design wants to make a tangible, positive impact and increase water availability by supporting the Dutch NGO Justdiggit.

Justdiggit jumpstarts landscape programs that will have a positive impact; making dry lands green again by inspiring and motivating farmers in Africa. Degraded landscapes are restored by combining traditional rainwater harvesting techniques with new technology.

Justdiggits’ approach to restore land is called the “Hydrologic Corridor”. Its founding principle – that the earth can be restored with a little kickstart from human interventions on land. The Justdiggit programs influence regional climates by capturing CO2, reducing local temperatures and creating localized rains.

In dry areas, the soil is degraded and rainwater can no longer infiltrate into the ground. It evaporates or causes erosion and flooding, and washes away any remaining fertile soil. By combining ancient water harvesting techniques with recent innovations, rainwater can enter the earth and be available for vegetation growth again. By allowing rainwater to infiltrate into the soil, seeds can sprout and vegetation returns. This restored vegetation brings more moisture into the air, letting the root systems of the plants and trees prevent water from flowing away, which in turn helps to create clouds, restore the water cycle and regenerate underground water levels, ultimately increasing the overall water availability in the ground, the rivers and the entire eco-system.

XD Design will donate 1 euro from the sale of every XD Design sustainable backpack. The project aims to re-green 14.805 km in Dodoma (Tanzania).

The global forest products trucking industry includes log transport and chip transport. The increase in demand for wood-based raw materials drives the demand for the forest products trucking market. According to the Food and Agriculture Organization’s Annual Market Review 2018 – 2019, the total consumption of roundwood logs for industrial use and fuel in the UNECE region was estimated to be 1.4 billion m3 in 2018, which is an increase of 5% over that of 2017. The consumption of wood-based panels grew by 1.3%. International trade of softwood logs reached 93 million m3 in 2018, which is a 52% increase over the last ten years. Thus, this rise in demand for wooden raw materials boosted the demand for trucking forest products and positively affects the forest products trucking market.

The global forest products trucking market size is expected to decline from $175.77 billion in 2019 to $173.78 billion in 2020 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of -1.1%. The decline is mainly due to the COVID-19 outbreak that has led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of industries and other commercial activities resulting in operational challenges. The entire supply chain has been disrupted, impacting the market negatively. The market is then expected to recover and reach $214.23 billion in 2023 at a CAGR of 7.2%.

Forest products trucking market trends include mergers and acquisitions, such as when in August 2018, Leavitt’s Freight Service, a US-based specialty carrier of utility poles and engineered wood products, merged with Daseke-affiliated Central Oregon Truck Company. The merger allows both the companies to cut costs by sharing each other’s facilities for service, maintenance, and fuel as both the companies operate in the Northwest along the I-5 corridor.
