Reed Cagle believes that the price of gold certainly will increase in 2021

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, USA, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Reed Cagle has made some serious strides in the energy industry over the last two decades. Charles Reed Cagle has achieved great success in particular as the Chief Executive Officer (CEO) of HEI, an energy enterprise. In addition to his experience in this field, Reed Cagle also is knowledgeable about the mining and the gold market. He's made some predictions on gold prices for the year 2021 that may be quite surprising.

Charles Reed Cagle Operates a Copper and Gold Processing Plant

A big part of the career of Reed Cagle in recent years is that he has been running a copper and gold processing plant in Chile. Since he became involved in this industry in 2011 in the US and South America, Mr. Cagle definitely learned a great deal. His mining work in this manner led him to develop a way to separate out toxic material from liquids and neutralize it while still recovering precious metals such as gold. The processing plant in Copiapo does use this technology and method, and there are sure to be further applications for this around the world.

Reed Cagle's Current Work in the United States

Today, Reed Cagle is in Texas and he is helping midsize independent oil companies in streamlining their operations as well as get them to make lower-risk decisions with their work in this sector in Texas and Colorado. He consults with a large commercial landscaping company in Texas as well.

Reed Cagle on Gold

Reed Cagle believes that the price of gold certainly will increase in 2021. There already has been some increase and his expert opinion is that this isn't going to stop anytime soon. This is because the demand for gold is higher than its supply. The supply likely will never see a reduction because this is one of the most durable of the valuable materials out there. In 2020, there also was an increase and though the reality will depend on several factors such as economic and geopolitical, it's sure to be a strong year for this precious metal.

If the US dollar continues to grow weaker this year, this will prove to be a pivotal moment for the gold industry. Though demand from central banks in the US is down, there still is plenty of demand. It's necessary to buy while it's lower, before the projected increases, and pay close attention to Reed Cagle and others on this topic so that you can make an educated decision on why you should sell it.

dynaCERT Possesses Potential Trillion Dollar Carbon Credit Patent

dynaCERT is 2018 Gold winner of Edison Award

dynaCERT Inc. (T.DYA) holds world wide patents on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within emission reductions in diesel engines

dynaCERT Inc. (TSX:DYA)

Shares of DYA currently trades under C$1/share and present an opportunity for investors to experience extraordinary gains.”

— Market Equities Research Group

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — dynaCERT Inc. (TSX: DYA) (OTCQB: DYFSF) (Frankfurt: DMI) is on the cusp of a major catalyst entering 2021:

• In a recent year-end/new-year corporate interview, the CEO of dynaCERT disclosed the extreme level of latent potential poised to be realized — the CEO recounted an opinion expressed to him in the closing weeks of 2020 by a securities analyst; “that one worldwide patent you've got on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within an internal combustion engine, that's a trillion dollars in itself.” (See related interview URL link: https://www.newsfilecorp.com/release/71201 online).

– dynaCERT holds the world wide patents on the means and methods of monitoring and monetizing carbon credits within emission reductions in diesel engines, dynaCERT holds this in 12 different verticals. dynaCERT is now in the process of certification so carbon credits generated and tracked can be sold on the open market. This alone, once approved and gains traction, has serious potential to catapult dynaCERT toward becoming a multi-billion Fortune 500 company.

– dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ (HG) technology is proven (on diesel trucks) to result in up to 88.7% reduction in NOx emissions, ~50% reduction in CO, 6-19% reduction in CO2, up to 57.1% reduction in Total Hydrocarbon emissions, 55%+ reduction in particulate matter (no black smoke), up to ~20% reduction in fuel consumption, provides better torque, and lower maintenance costs.

Look for major investment to flood into dynaCERT Inc. once VERRA Authority clears dynaCERT’s Carbon Credit application, establishing a novel auditable mechanism that will provide solutions and opportunities to all levels of governments, organizations, and businesses globally.

The United Nations has certified dynaCERT’s product under its Smart Sustainable Cities Program (U4SSC) and the technology is now recognized in important circles as the future of carbon credits. dynaCERT’s carbon credit tracking/auditing technology is now positioned to be advanced in a coordinated fashion globally as the only universally accepted standard ready for mass adoption. The Verified Carbon Standard, Verra or VCS, formerly the Voluntary Carbon Standard, is a standard for certifying carbon emissions reductions. VCS is administered by Verra. The VCS Program is the world’s most widely used voluntary GHG program. Over 1,600 certified VCS projects have collectively reduced or removed more than 500 million tonnes of carbon and other GHG emissions from the atmosphere. Verra is associated with the Carbon Pricing Leadership Coalition, which is comprised of major government partners and private sector partners globally. dynaCERT clients can expect to see top dollar in the voluntary carbon market once it’s application is cleared for implementation.

Looking at dynaCERT’s long haul trucking market alone, a single truck can generate as much as $3,000 in carbon credits per annum using HG technology. dynaCERT’s plan, once it has finished going through approval with VERRA authority, is to maintain 50% of the carbon credit$ and 50% of it will go to the fleet owners. The methodology now in for approval with VERRA USA uses dynaCERT's patented HydraGEN™ Technology to lower carbon emissions and its HydraLytica™ Telematics technology to securely record carbon emissions and other non-personal data from diesel and gas engines. dynaCERT’s application is currently being dealt with, led by Environmental-Partners of the UK.

dynaCERT’s HydraGEN™ technology is proven through multiple top-level independent lab studies in various jurisdictions around the globe (TUV North and South in UK, PIT Group in North America, ICAT in India, labs in the UAE, etc…) to reduce harmful emission in diesel transport trucks and improve fuel economy. Transport trucks were dynaCERT’s first target market, the Company now makes different sized HG units and more industries are starting to adopt the technology — look for exponential growth across multiple sectors.

The Company currently installs its HG technology on class 8 trucks, buses, refrigerator trailers, small trucks, electrical power generation units of all sizes, farming equipment and agriculture equipment, construction equipment, mining equipment, and it is now moving into marine vessels (the first ships are now being organized for installs). The Company believes it will also at some point in the future be installing its technology on train locomotives and ocean going vessels (which are major polluters; one container ship can spew the equivalent pollution per annum of 50 million cars), and it is currently working with a group in Europe to develop a unit for passenger vehicles.

dynaCERT is gaining a strong foothold in the mining sector now, where a single piece of large equipment can burn over $1M/year in fuel. Feedback from mining experts and dealers servicing this industry reveal that it is not uncommon for a capital outlay (to buy a HG unit) to be recouped with a ROI payback within 8 months from a nominal 5% fuel savings.

HydraLytica™ is dynaCERT’s proprietary software with remote real-time telematics which the Company has retained worldwide experts to establish an audit trail of fuel savings and future carbon credits. dynaCERT's telematics developer invented Apple Pay™ and PayPal™. Related to HydraLytica™, dynaCERT is also greatly escalating its scope of applications and utility to respond to the growing industry needs of Logistics companies and the broader Trucking Management software ecosystem. On September 23, 2020 the Company announced that dynaCERT International Strategic Holdings Inc. (“DISH”), a wholly-owned subsidiary of dynaCERT, has agreed with Corsario Ltd. of Mississauga, Canada, dynaCERT’s HydraLytica™ software developer, to magnify and maintain the functionality of its new proprietary suite of FreightTech software applications. GP LogiX Inc., a wholly-owned subsidiary of Corsario established specifically for this single purpose, will market the functionality of dynaCERT’s new FreightTech software and share equally with DISH all financial benefits, thus providing yet another stream of cash flow to dynaCERT through DISH.

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Says These Are the Best Diving Spots in and Around Florida

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota, a frequent diver, has been checking out various dive spots in and around Florida in recent months.

SARASOTA, FL, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Diving has become a popular pastime for many in recent years. And with much of society shut down due to the COVID-19 pandemic, diving has offered many a great way to escape and enjoy nature. Shawn Stumpf Sarasota, a frequent diver, has been checking out various dive spots in and around Florida in recent months. Now, he’s going to share some of his favorite diving spots.

“Florida is surrounded by oceans and there are many rivers and sinkholes worth exploring too,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota claims. “I count it as a blessing that I live in Florida because it affords so many great diving opportunities. That said, some spots are better than others.”

So where are the best diving spots in Florida? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota suggests first considering what you want to see and do. Then, find locations that match your interests, skill level, and other factors. That said, Shawn Stumpf Sarasota believes that there are some standout dive spots everyone should consider.

“A lot of people want to see manatees,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “Checking them off your bucket list is a good way to start your diving season. And when it comes to sea cows, Crystal River may well be the best place.”

Not worried about catching up with manatees? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says cave diving is a lot of fun, but only experienced divers or those with the right mentors should jump into advanced cave diving. New to cave diving? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says that beginner cave divers should check out this particular spot.

“The Blue Grotto is very accessible, and while it offers a great time for cave diving, it’s beginner-friendly,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota argues. “There are a lot of great, advanced caves worth diving in, but the Blue Grotto is an excellent starting point.”

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Says These Two Dive Spots Offer Great Sights

Exploring shipwrecks offers another unique experience. And for better or worse, many ships have sunk around Florida. Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says you should check out Key Largo if you want to see big shipwrecks.

“Exploring the shipwrecks in Key Largo is a great way to spend a few days,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “Every diver in Florida should check out Key Largo at least once.”

If you prefer natural sights rather than man-made ones, the living reefs at Looe Key are an excellent choice.

“The reefs at Looe Key are very beautiful,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says, “you should get to see a lot of wildlife and other sights.”

Shawn Stumpf Sarasota Suggests Snorkeling Too

Not certified for diving and looking for something a bit more beginner-friendly? Shawn Stumpf Sarasota notes that snorkeling scratches many of the same itches as diving but is often easier for people new to water exploration.

“Snorkeling is a lot of fun,” Shawn Stumpf Sarasota says. “I often prefer diving, sure, but snorkeling is less of a hassle in some ways. And if you’re new to exploring oceans and rivers, it’s an easier introduction.”

Green Hydrogen

Llewellyn King, Host, White House Chronicle

USEA To Hold Virtual Press Briefing on Green Hydrogen on Jan. 15

Batteries and other storage systems are all on the table, along with what may have the most promise: green hydrogen”

— Llewellyn King Executive Producer and Host, "White House Chronicle"

WASHINGTON, D.C., USA, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — On Friday, Jan. 15 at 11 a.m. ET, the United States Energy Association will hold a virtual briefing for members of the media on green hydrogen, the new utility frontier.

There is a growing overproduction of electricity from solar and wind, but solar in particular, especially in the Southwest. Utilities are in a rush to find ways of saving this electricity and balancing their systems.

Batteries and other storage systems are all on the table, along with what may have the most promise: green hydrogen. This is hydrogen made by electrolysis, using surplus electricity.

European countries are ahead of us, but an increasing number of U.S. utilities are looking at hydrogen as the companion to alternative fuels.

This virtual briefing will be moderated by syndicated columnist and broadcaster Llewellyn King. USEA Acting Executive Director Sheila Hollis will give opening remarks.

The expert panel includes: Mark Eisenhower, Partner, Energy, Sustainability, Guidehouse; Michael Green, General Manager, Nuclear Power, Arizona Public Service; Bruce Hallbert, Director, Technical Integration Office, LWR Program, Idaho National Laboratory; and Paul Schultz, Director, Power External Energy Resources, Los Angeles Department of Water and Power.

The briefing, the fourth in a series, is open to members of the media and any other interested parties. Members of the media will be given preference in the questioning.

Participants must register for the briefing beforehand. A recording will be available on the USEA website.

The Rebound in China’s Hog Market appears to be Bullish for Agriculture and Farmland Prices

Hog production in China is expected to fully recover in the first half of 2021.

CALGARY, AB, CANADA, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a December 15, 2020 article in the Xinhau News “China’s hog production to fully recover in H1 next year” – it was stated by China’s Ministry of Agriculture and Rural Affairs that the hog production in China is expected to fully recover in the first half of 2021.(1)

“By the end of November 2020 the inventory of live pigs and breeding sows has reached over 90 percent of the levels seen in normal years,” said the Ministry.(1)

According to Carmon Blacklock, VP of Investments and Operations at Veripath Farmland Partners “The rebound in China’s hog market should be bullish for soybeans and canola prices. We are now seeing canola over $13/bushel – prices we have not seen for 4 or 5 years”.

“The increase in the prices of soybeans and canola should provide an additional source of real upward pressure on Canadian farmland prices via improved margins for farm operations and the ongoing process of farm consolidation as farmers compete to expand their land bases” stated Mr. Blacklock.

Veripath operates as a pair of funds – Veripath Farmland LP, which is structured to own farmland in Saskatchewan and Manitoba only; and Veripath Farmland (UR) LP, which is structured to own farmland across the rest of the country. By having two separate vehicles, Veripath simplifies and streamlines compliance with the various provincial regulatory environments. The funds also have open-ended, evergreen structures, rather than the traditional fixed term. With this approach, Veripath allows shorter- and longer-duration holdings to exist side-by-side, enabling investors, rather than management, to make the decision as to what holding period best fits their portfolio design requirements.

Who is Veripath: Veripath is a Canadian alternative investment firm. Members of Veripath’s management team have decades of farmland, private equity, and private credit investment experience. Veripath implements its farmland strategy in a way that seeks to preserve as far as possible farmland’s low-volatility return profile – the attribute that generates a material portion of Canadian farmland’s superior risk adjusted returns. Veripath does this by seeking to minimize operational, weather, geographic and business-related risks – and capture the pure return from land appreciation. Canadian zero-til farmland portfolios may also be a useful addition to ESG driven mandates combining superior risk adjusted returns with environmental benefits.

REE Mining Stock Defense Metals ($DEFN.V; $DFMTF) & SRC INVESTIGATE XRT AMMENABILITY OF WICHEEDA REE MINERALIZATION

DEFN.V has commissioned the SRC to complete an XRT sorting amenability study with respect to mineralized feed sourced from its Wicheeda REE Property

Defense Metals Corp. (TSX:DEFN.V)

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Mining/Metals/ Green Energy Stock News from Investorideas.com Newswire: Defense Metals Corp. (“Defense Metals”) (TSX-V:DEFN / OTCQB:DFMTF/ 35D: FSE) is pleased to announce that it has commissioned the Saskatchewan Research Council (“SRC”) to complete an X-Ray Transmission (“XRT”) sorting amenability study with respect to mineralized feed sourced from its 1,708 hectare (4,220 acre) Wicheeda Rare Earth Element (REE) Property (“Wicheeda”) located close to existing infrastructure near Prince George, British Columbia (BC).

Read this news, featuring DEFENSE METALS in full at https://www.investorideas.com/news/2021/mining/01131DEFN-Wicheeda.asp

Defense Metals and SRC have been awarded National Research Council of Canada Industrial Research Assistance Program (NRC IRAP) funding, a Government of Canada funded program mandated to provide financial support for technology innovation. Funding awarded under the NRC IRAP will cover approximately 70% of the estimated cost of the XRT amenability study test-work.

The Wicheeda project has indicated mineral resources of 4,890,000 tonnes averaging 3.02% LREO (Light Rare Earth Elements) and inferred mineral resources of 12,100,000 tonnes averaging 2.90% LREO(1). Flotation pilot-plant processing of a 26-tonne bulk sample of Wicheeda REE material yielded a mineral concentrate averaging 7.4% NdPr oxide (neodymium-praseodymium) critical magnet metals(2).

XRT sorting has the potential to realize several significant project benefits including:

• Relatively low-cost gangue (unmineralized waste) removal and volume reduction at the front-end of the Wicheeda REE processing stream;
• Potential to have a significant positive benefit on downstream flotation and hydrometallurgical processes via reduced water, heating, and reagent consumption costs; and
• Depending on the success of the test-work these reductions may contribute to overall lower size / throughput and capital cost of potential future commercial REE concentration and refining facilities at Wicheeda.

Craig Taylor, CEO comments:

“Defense Metals looks forward to investigating the potential of low-cost front-end upgrading of Wicheeda REE mineralization via XRT sorting. We have already demonstrated the ability to produce a greater than 50% REO concentrate during flotation pilot plant test-work and we hope unlocking the benefits of XRT sorting will yield downstream processing benefits of increased head grade, flotation concentrate, and hydrometallurgical feed streams”.

Details of XRT Study Methodology
X-ray Transmission (XRT) Analysis:

The XRT investigation requires the selection of large samples containing both gangue and REE mineralization for analysis. The samples are analysed using:

• Dual energy X-ray transmission measurements (DE-CT), and
• QEMSCAN for calibration and mineral identification and modal mineralogy.

Photographs of the polished QEMSCAN samples are used to verify the atomic differences measured by DE-CT. The modal mineralogy is used to determine REE grades.

Image Analysis:
The DE-CT images are analyzed using different sized grids to determine how much gangue can be removed for a range of particle sizes. This process determines the upgrading possibilities for different sorting sizes, the grade of the concentrate and the grade of the waste.

Wicheeda REE Project
The Wicheeda REE project has indicated mineral resources of 4,890,000 tonnes averaging 3.02% LREO (Light Rare Earth Elements) and inferred mineral resources of 12,100,000 tonnes averaging 2.90% LREO(3).

CEO will cover Habitat for Humanity’s commitment to sustainability and the recent RESNET/Habitat for Humanity’s collaboration

OCEANSIDE, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, January 13, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Jonathan Reckford, Chief Executive Officer of Habitat for Humanity International, will be the keynote speaker at the 2021 RESNET Virtual Building Performance Conference that will take place February 22-24, 2021.

The RESNET 2021 Virtual Conference is an online event for anyone working in or around the residential building industry such as HERS® Raters, builders, code and government officials, sustainability advocates, appraisers, architects and more.

In his keynote address, Jonathan will cover Habitat for Humanity’s commitment to sustainability, how RESNET and Habitat for Humanity work together, and the role of certified RESNET HERS Raters in meeting the organization’s goals. Following his comments, he will join RESNET Executive Director Steve Baden on a wide-ranging conversation of how the two organizations can work effectively together.

Drawing upon his decades of experience ranging from Wall Street to a local church, Jonathan has led the global nonprofit’s tremendous growth. Through his management, Habitat has grown from serving 125,000 individuals a year to helping more than 5.9 million people last year alone to build strength, stability, and independence through shelter.

Jonathan is deeply influenced by his parents, who were active in the civil rights movement, and by his grandmother, U.S. Congresswoman Millicent Fenwick, widely known for her commitment to justice. Jonathan seeks to follow in their footsteps by leading Habitat’s efforts to draw nearer to a world where everyone has a decent place to live.

His path to Habitat was neither immediate nor direct — with stops at Goldman, Sachs & Co.; the 1988 Olympic Games in Seoul, South Korea; Marriott; The Walt Disney Co.; Musicland; Best Buy; and Christ Presbyterian Church in Edina, Minnesota. Every position prepared him to lead Habitat with a passion for the mission, tireless commitment to the work and bold vision for the future.

He is the author of Our Better Angels: Seven Simple Virtues That Will Change Your Life and the World, which provides practical inspiration to bridge the divisiveness of the day. He is a noted speaker and sought-after contributor to home affordability conversations throughout the U.S. and around the world.

Jonathan serves on the boards of the Federal Reserve Bank of Atlanta, is the chair of Leadership 18 and is a member of the Freddie Mac Housing Advisory Council. He is also a member of the Council on Foreign Relations and the Urban Steering Committee for the World Economic Forum.

Jonathan holds an MBA from Stanford and a Bachelor of Arts in political science from the The University of North Carolina at Chapel Hill, where he was a Morehead Scholar. In 1986, he was awarded a Henry Luce Fellowship.

He and his wife, Ashley, have three children and live in Atlanta.

Under his leadership Habitat has made a solid commitment to sustainable affordable housing. This leadership includes working with RESNET to involve certified RESNET HERS® Raters participating in Habitat for Humanity affiliate projects.
