The flotsam and jetsam problem is so connected to climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification that you cannot deal with it in isolation.”

— Flotsam Scott J Cooper

FOWLER, CA, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 / — Scott J Cooper Water Council released its review of Seaspiracy, the controversial Netflix documentary. Ever since the release of Seaspiracy, there has been an uproar among many who cannot come to terms with the staggering information is presented. The documentary sheds light on the fishing industry’s exploitative practices that lead to dolphin killings.

Moreover, the film illustrates the impact of the fishing industry on marine science. The biggest ecological nightmare for the world right now is that the very people who define sustainable fishing goals are the scientists with ties to the fishing industry.

The Netflix documentary has received its share of criticism. Fishing industry scientists are particularly unhappy about how the film has raised suspicion on the credibility of certification labels and ocean conservation groups. Those who defend Seaspiracy claim that the documentary was never supposed to be scientifically 100 percent accurate and there are much larger issues at hand.

The loudest criticism remains about the year 2048. The film used research to claim that the oceans would be empty by the year 2048. It was not received well by critics. In fact, several attempts were made to control media outlets from citing it.

Netflix and Seaspiracy have been on point on a variety of issues. Despite some minor errors, the documentary was right about the issue of overfishing. It depicted how seriously overfishing threatens marine biodiversity. "It is not only widely accepted but also comes with strong reasoning behind it," said Flotsam's Scott J. Cooper. "It talks about plastic pollution being highly destructive to marine life. It talks about how dirty the global seafood system is. This flotsam and jetsam problem is so connected to climate change, pollution, and ocean acidification that you cannot deal with it in isolation."

The documentary claims that the fishing industry receives $35 billion in subsidies annually. The subsidies primarily come from the European Union, the US, China, Japan, and Korea. The claims stand true as the UN had previously said that a dollar is subsidized for every $5 of exported fish products.

Open toxicogenomic data project improves our knowledge for nanomaterials toxicity

The nanoΦaros workflow provides users structured, harmonised and ready for modelling datasets, with sufficient metadata to increase data FAIRness.

Toxicogenomics is a relatively new method that helps us to gain insight into the possible toxicity mechanisms of engineered nanomaterials (ENMs).

While large amounts of transcriptomics data from ENM exposures have already been accumulated, a unified, easily accessible and reusable collection of transcriptomics data for ENMs was lacking”

— Antreas Afantitis

CYRPUS, June 30, 2021 / — A team of scientists involved in NanoSolveIT, an EU nanoinformatics project funded under Horizon 2020, completed a study that was published in Nature journal Scientific Data (, in order to unleash the full potential of already existing transcriptomics data on ENM exposures. “While large amounts of transcriptomics data from ENM exposures have already been accumulated, a unified, easily accessible and reusable collection of transcriptomics data for ENMs was lacking” says Antreas Afantitis, NanoSolveIT Project Coordinator “The team manually curated, and preprocessed and unified a collection of 101 data sets, covering a range of ENMs, organisms, and exposure setups.”
As Professor Dario Greco, Director of the Finnish Hub for Development and Validation of Integrated Approaches, at Tampere University says “In an attempt to improve the FAIRness of already existing transcriptomics data for ENMs, we curated a collection of homogenized transcriptomics data from human, mouse and rat ENM exposures in vitro and in vivo including extracting the physicochemical characteristics of the ENMs used in each study from the associated publications.”
The traditional methods of toxicology, used for decades now to scrutinize the safety levels of engineered materials, provide us with a useful tool. However the successful marriage of computer technology and bioinformatics has given birth to a new generation of Toxicogenomics (TGx) tools. Their main function is to collect and store data sets which are further explored and used as the basis for development of predictive models.
The application of TGx data to nanosafety can provide novel possibilities for grouping and classifying ENMs based on the similarity of molecular alterations in biological systems they induce, and help to derive biomarkers to identify nano-specific signatures.

Transcriptomics technologies, used to study an organism as the sum of its RNA transcripts (known as the transcriptome), are the frontline of TGx. While large amounts of transcriptomics data for multiple ENMs have already been generated, offering a valuable resource for future studies and applications, the data are scattered across public repositories, and their FAIRness is currently hampered by their heterogeneous nature and a lack of standardization in the preprocessing and analysis.

The NanoPharos database (, where all the datasets generated within the H2020 NanoSolveIT ( and NanoCommons ( projects are available, assists accessibility, interoperability and reusability of curated datasets. Antreas Afantitis, from NovaMechanics Ltd and NanoSolveIT H2020 project coordinator, commented: NanoPharos database has been designed under the FAIR data principles to include computationally derived data based on simulations of ENMs at different levels of complexity. The database was further extended to include ENM characterization data and biological effects to support complete in silico nanosafety evaluation.

That team of health solution masterminds is led by lead scientist, Tim Griswold. Tim’s personal health struggles were what originally led him to the field of naturopathics science.

Tim shares, “During my undergrad years, I started having some internal medical concerns and set about on a journey to try and discover the cause and possible solutions. I determined that in order for me to heal, I would need to get to the root cause. This led me to my master’s work where I got to study atomic particle movement and the quantum nature of the universe.”

The scientist has his Master of Nanoscience from Arizona State University, where he focused on learning the physics of biology and chemistry at the ultra small scale. Prior to that he earned two bachelor’s degrees from University of Idaho in chemical engineering and chemistry.

Tim is also a family man. Married for almost three years, he and his wife, Carolyn, just had their first child, Ezekiel, in late May. Along with Tim’s intelligence, his fun-loving personality is demonstrated in his iconic bowtie and eye-catching dance moves. Tim says, “I like to show people that I am more than just an analytical, science brain, so I do my best to surprise people and have fun! And dancing, well dancing is the soul saying hello… which makes everything more fun.”

In the Microbe lab, Tim is tasked with managing and operating the analytical equipment and analytical reviews of all data collected. He also aids and drives the development of new naturopathic products and technologies. His experience and training has helped in creating solutions to support his own health along with thousands of Microbe customers.

A true Critical Infrastructure Solutions Company.

We are delighted we were able to introduce our AVT colleagues to the customer and that the install went so smoothly.”

— CSNRI’s UK Managing Director Sean Connolly

HOUSTON, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 / — CSNRI has been delivering best-in-class composite repair solutions to the oil and gas industry for decades and is now partnering with fellow ClockSpring|NRI companies to offer a range of critical infrastructure solutions to its customers.

CSNRI, AVT (Advanced Valve Technologies) and GeoTree are all part of ClockSpring|NRI. CSNRI specializes in composite repairs, AVT manufacturers insertion valves for the water industry and GeoTree delivers structural strengthening and geopolymer rehabilitation solutions.

Recently, CSNRI colleagues, who had a long-term working partnership with a UK oil refinery, were made aware of an issue with the refinery’s fire suppression system. Vital refurbishment work was required on a 1 million+ gallon sea water storage tank that feeds the system. Refinery engineers realized the valve which should isolate the tank from the remainder of the fire system, was seized and could not be closed.

The operators needed a way to install a valve without shutting off the water supply that the plant relies on for its fire protection. Having worked with CSNRI, they turned to the team for support. CSNRI immediately recommended they use AVT’s insertion valve.

The AVT EZ Valve, a valve which can be installed without the need to shut off the water, has been used widely across the U.K. and U.S. within water authority systems but its installation in industrial applications in the U.K. is, so far, limited.

Once the decision was made that the EZ Valve would be able to resolve the issue, the team at CSNRI contacted their AVT colleagues who would carry out the install, Regional Account Director Jason Taylor, and Engineering Manager Lee Kirkham.

The 8” valve was installed on an exposed carbon steel line in a relatively cramped area. The EZ Valve is installed using a low-profile EM (End Milling) machine which mills a 120o slot across the top of the pipe and enables a resilient wedge gate to be inserted. The millings created, or swarf, is flushed out of the valve during the milling process by the pressure of the water in the pipe, meaning the quality of the water is maintained. This all takes place without the need to shut off the water and the small slot milled also ensures the integrity of the pipe is not affected. Jason and Lee completed the install within just two hours.

CSNRI’s UK Managing Director Sean Connolly said: “CSNRI and AVT deliver very different product ranges but both work within critical infrastructure. We are all aware of the range of products available so when we identified the need for a new valve at one of our customers’ plants, we know the EZ Valve would be the ideal solution. We are delighted we were able to introduce our AVT colleagues to the customer and that the install went so smoothly.”

AVT’s President Harry Gray said: “We’re rightly proud of the EZ Valve and delighted to see our CSNRI colleagues identifying great opportunities for it to assist their long-term clients. We look forward to working with them more in the future.”

AVT has recently released a detailed animation which clearly shows just how innovative insertion valve technology works. View it here:

Ethanol-free gas emerges as PurFuels, a multi-use gasoline benefitting consumers and marine industry

Houston-based performance fuels distributor Hyperfuels announces its newest product to market, PurFuels, commonly referred to as Isobutanol, to the US market. PurFuels is made with Isobutanol, replacing ethanol in the fuel, has the following advantages:
• Low vapor pressure eliminates “vapor-lock” and hard start conditions
• Isobutanol has more energy or btu’s than ethanol so power is noticeably increased
• Marine Gas can be used as a storage fuel as it is not prone to breakdown over time
• Marine Gas does not mix with water and is not “hygroscopic” like ethanol (means it does not attract moisture into the fuel)
• Marine gas can be purchased in regular, midgrade and premium octane.
• Marine Gas is available in gallons, pails, drums, totes and bulk.

Ideal markets to utilize this EPA Reformulated Gasoline (RG) fuel source includes:
• water rescue
• fire & crash rescue
• marinas: consumer boaters/jet ski users
• consumer small engines user
• winter equipment (snowmobiles)

Success with past municipal clients such as the East-coast based Montgomery County Crash Rescue municipality in Rockville, Maryland, who was having issues with their boats not starting in the winter due to gas freezing in tanks, identified a critical market: municipalities. Hyperfuels has secured government contracting eligibility, with help from the University of Houston Procurement Technical Assistance Center, to pursue additional municipality contracts.

Per Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, consumers also reap the benefits of PurFuels. As boat owners, marinas head into summer boating season they need to know that studies conclude that ethanol negatively impacts fuel filters, carburetors and more. In addition, ethanol is hygroscopic, which means it attracts water. When water from condensation forms in a boat’s fuel tank the ethanol attracts and absorbs the condensation, causing engine power issues from water contamination and fuel phase separation.

The timeliness of Hyperfuels introduction of PurFuels with Isobutanol comes as the marine industry focuses on addressing the congressionally-mandated Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requiring 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel to be blended into the gasoline supply by 2022.

Hyperfuels Marine Gas can be purchased:
• Amazon
• order online at, pickup at Hyperfuels in Houston, TX
• call 281-447-7200 to arrange delivery within United States
• wholesale bulk product (6,000-30,000 gallons) via tank wagons, trailers and railcars, to fit a scale of economy that helps small-medium sized businesses.

Additional tools helpful for understanding more about ethanol free gas include: for a list of where to find ethanol free gas in the United States
• Clean Cities, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy designed to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector by advancing the use of alternative fuel vehicles, idle reduction technologies, hybrid electric vehicles, fuel blends, and fuel economy.
• Trade Only Today, daily news for marine trade industry professionals
• National Marine Manufacturers Association-videos, testimonials, research study conclusions and how biofuels are made

About Hyperfuels
Houston, TX based Hyperfuels distributes high performance fuels, lubricants and additives for engines. Since 1998 Hyperfuels has revolutionized the packaged fuel markets by creating a “grab and go” fuel canister with top quality fuels such as Sunoco Racing Fuels, Elf Racing Fuels, Total Energies Lubricants, PurFuels TM, E-Free and SynDiesel. Hyperfuels leads the industry in distribution of ethanol-free fuels (using Isobutanol oxygenate) to marinas, fire and crash rescue operations and small engine users. For more information visit

Drawing on more than 25 years in the fashion industry in Europe, the Americas, and Asia, Liza has spent the past 16 months harnessing and developing the creativity and skills of small locally owned manufacturers in Africa into sustainable economic and marketable partnerships aimed at improving their production capabilities and access to the global market.

“We believe that profit and purpose can go hand-in-hand and as a brand, we are committed to building a responsible and purpose-driven community by making better choices for society and the environment”, she says.

“We are not about adopting social impact or sustainability values that are nice to have. We are simply doing the right thing for the environment and society. This is why we are working towards creating a sustainable route to market for underrepresented African producers and artisan groups.”

With a product development base in London and operations in Kenya, In Our Name has a strategically mapped supply chain aimed at minimizing its carbon footprint. It only uses materials and components that will have a minimal impact on the environment; 90% of the fabric used is Lenzing EcoveroTM, a certified and sustainable textile made from renewable wood sources which use 50% less water and energy than conventional viscose during production. The remaining 10% is generic viscose and cotton sourced from traceable supply chains. In Our Name does not use materials derived from fossil fuels, unless it's recycled or upcycled and 100% of their packaging is made from renewable sources. All e-commerce bags are recycled.

Liza, who is half Kenyan and born in Nairobi, is committed to building an ecosystem that trains local artisans in all aspects of production, quality, and supply chain – all funded by In Our Name’s 100% Initiative. This enables 100% of the profits from artisan goods to be used to support various artisans and micro-enterprises in Kenya to create long-term sustainable income opportunities for the local communities.

“I see the world as a global village. The more we focus on our common values, the less we notice our differences, and the more we can be united in a common purpose that is driven by optimism to make meaningful change in Africa.

“The informal sector in Africa has the potential of becoming a significant supplier to the global market.”

Governor DeSantis Signs Law Creating Specialty License Plant for Florida State Parks

Will have a huge impact on our fabulous state parks

The approval of the specialty state park license plate is huge and will provide significant and ongoing funding to enable us to protect and preserve the nation’s best state park system.”

— Julia Gill Woodward

TALLAHASSEE, FL, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 / — Governor DeSantis has signed the enabling bill that authorizes a specialty license plate for Florida’s award-winning state parks.

“We are grateful that the Governor has signed this bill which will have a huge impact on our fabulous state parks,” said Gil Ziffer, President of the Florida State Parks Foundation, which sponsored the legislation. Pres-sales of the specialty plate will start in October.

“Thanks to overwhelming bipartisan support in both the House and the Senate, the Florida State Park specialty license plate is now a reality”, he said. “It is extremely unusual for an enabling bill like this to go through in just one legislative session but that demonstrates how much support it had in both chambers,” he said.

“Special thanks go to Senator Dennis Baxley and Representative Allison Tant for successfully championing the bill,” he said.

“Our Florida State Parks are a wonderful resource for our citizens to learn, grow and play. Our parks need to be protected and I am excited to get this license plate bill passed and help provide some much-needed funding to preserve these state treasures,” said Senator Dennis Baxley, who sponsored the bill in the Senate.

House Bill sponsor, Representative Allison Tant said, “The “Florida State Parks specialty license plate will provide funding to address crumbling infrastructure, improve structures, preserve animal and plant habitats, and provide more ADA certified improvements to increase access to the great outdoors”.

“The approval of the specialty state park license plate is huge and will provide significant and ongoing funding to enable us to protect and preserve the nation’s best state park system," said Foundation CEO Julia Gill Woodward.

“Although our state parks are the only four-time National Gold Medal winners for excellence, there is much that needs to be done to ensure they continue to be recognized as world leaders. Funds from a specialty license plate will help us achieve this,” she said.
“Florida’s state parks play distanced environment. The demand for these open spaces will continue to increase as Florida’s population is expected to top 23 million by 2025 and tourism numbers grow,” she added.

“To meet this growing an important role in providing open spaces where people can recreate and exercise in a safe, socially demand, it is important that state parks continue to provide exceptional value in terms of visitor experience and the range of outdoor pursuits available. It is also important that these pursuits are available to the widest possible audience both in terms of accessibility and diversity."

The Foundation, founded in 1993 as Friends of Florida State Parks and renamed in 2018, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service, its 175 award-winning parks and trails, local Friends groups and more than 20,000 park volunteers.

It does this through programs that preserve and protect state parks, educate visitors about the value of state parks, encourage community engagement and active use of state parks, and advocacy.

The volunteer Board of Directors represents private and public sectors as well as local and statewide interests.
