Proprietary formula for the elimination of pathogens in Agriculture & Nature.

OXYBOM™ International announces their proven technology that oxidizes Viruses, Bacteria, Funguses and Nematodes found in Soil, Plants and Livestock.

There is now a solution to the most violent germs in the world and it also happens to be eco-friendly & 100% biodegradable.”

— Gary Richardson

COLLEGE STATION, TEXAS, USA, September 23, 2021 / — OXYBOM™ International president, Gary Richardson, announced today the launching of its proprietary formula to eliminate pathogens found in Agriculture soil, plants and livestock. By mixing OXYBOM's eco-friendly germicide with water – farmers, growers and ranchers will be able to boost the water feeding their soil, plants and livestock. This revolutionary germicide will then use its ROS (reactive oxygen species) capability to "bursts" any pathogens in its path for successful disinfection. There are also applications in Nature such as Invasive Species Pathogens and Diseases that OXYBOM™ can solve.

"This technology, known as AOP (Advanced Oxidation Processes), was discovered in the 1980s. It has evolved into what we have today as the safest and most powerful chemical for all pathogens in the spectrum. Some refer to our eco-friendly germicide as "liquid ozone". When mixing our OXYBOM concentrate with water, this solution turns into a powerful germicide that is 10x more powerful than any other toxic chemical option of the past." says Richardson. It's important to note that no known microorganism can survive AOP.

OXYBOM™ began the R&D in 2011 and obtained success in field trials and industry certifications. This ROS chemical mimics Nature by using multiple functions to eliminate germs, biofilm, metals and turbidity. Similar to ozone, it is safer and more powerful than any other option available today. Different from ozone however, OXYBOM™ has a shelf-life of 6+ months and a residual longer than Chlorine while treating water. It has been certified for organic applications.

In addition, OXYBOM™ has been tested at Agriculture universities such as Universities of Florida, Georgia, Texas A&M and UC Davis. OXYBOM™ International is engaged with European countries as well as U.S. states in projects that have no solution for their crop diseases. Crops such as olives, grapes and citrus. When treating infected crops, results are seen within a few weeks using steady treatment. Sometimes as soon as two weeks.

OXYBOM™ is a division of MINLOX Chemical Co. They are based in College Station, Texas, near the Texas A&M campus and research centers. OXYBOM™ has blending locations in 6 of our 7 continents with the ability to ship anywhere within one week. Their blending capabilities surpass one million gallons per month.

A Voice at the Table Continues Wellness Workshops for Families Impacted by a Suicidal Crisis

Facilitators Tracey Medeiros & Annemarie Matulis

Pioneer Valley

Wellness Workshop Table

A Voice at the Table

7 month peer-to-peer workshops series for family and close friends emotionally impacted by the suicidal crisis of a loved one.

how do you bring yourself back from your own roller coaster of emotions to find at least some inner peace”

— Annemarie Matulis

SPRINGFIELD, MA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 / — “When your loved one has had a suicidal crisis and things have quieted down, how do you bring yourself back from your own roller coaster of emotions to find at least some inner peace?” That was one of the questions posed during a recent Saturday morning wellness workshop by facilitator Annemarie Matulis. A small group from the Pioneer Valley/Western Massachusetts area sat around the virtual Zoom table. The title of the exercise is “What? Me Color?” It’s about what do we each use to help calm ourselves down so we can better support our loved ones.

“It’s the Oxygen Mask Axiom,” added Matulis, “and it’s not easy.” Taking care of a loved one first in a suicidal crisis is instinctual for most of us. Impacted family and close friends lose sight of the “oxygen mask,” that they need to put that on themselves first. The family and close friends of suicide attempt survivors and other forms of suicidal crisis, struggle to find their way free from the anxiety and stress, darkness and anger, frustration, and a sense of helplessness to find their own way to the path of freedom from that fear. Welcome to the Impacted Family & Friends “Finding Inner Peace” workshops.

On Tuesday evening, September 28th, at 7:00 pm ET, Matulis, an impacted family member, and Tracey Medeiros, a suicide attempt survivor, will engage others around the Zoom table to continue the interactive discussion and include topics like “Bear Hugs Kettle,” and “Frozen in Time.” In August, A Voice at the Table delivered two informational livestreams to introduce the families and health-care providers in Chicopee, Springfield and Holyoke and other Pioneer Valley communities in Hampden, Franklin, and Hampshire counties about the content of this peer-to-peer, innovative, wellness workshop series in addition to the who, what, how and why the workshops. Moving forward, two of these wellness workshops will be presented each month through March 2022. The October workshops will be on the 16th at 10:00 am, and the 26th, at 7:00 pm. The Impacted Family & Friends programs have been in place in Massachusetts since 2014 and are now available in several other states.

WHO: Family & close friends emotionally impacted by any form of a loved one’s suicidal crisis

WHAT: Virtual & interactive wellness workshop – Finding Inner Peace

WHEN: Tuesday, September 28th, 7:00 pm ET

WHERE: Zoom. Link to register:


Is This the Night: Finding Inner Peace is a roundtable workshop format that will gently guide participants through what some might call a spiritual and emotional inventory that will offer suggestions on how to better recognize our own behaviors and attitudes and make minor or, in some cases, major changes. This is nothing new. It’s just another way to experience that turnaround to step away from fear and find inner peace and emotional balance.

The exercises outlined in these workshops may not be “the” answer to the quality-of-life wellness challenge for this huge population, but they offer a starting point to begin to tear down the walls fear has built and develop new soul-care skills that can bring some inner peace within while walking through a difficult emotional challenge. It is important to always keep in mind that the Finding Inner Peace Workshops are not counseling or therapy. It is a peer-to-peer format that is described in the original grant funding as “new and innovative.” It is also important to maintain a comfortable and casual atmosphere throughout the series. There will be moments when the sharing exchange may be serious or sad. There will be just as many times where laughter will rule.

These wellness workshops will be held twice a month from September through December and will resume from January to March. This project is funded by the Massachusetts Department of Mental Health.

The mission of the Pioneer Valley Coalition for Suicide Prevention is to create an inclusive collaboration of public and private agencies, community members and people with lived experiences working together to promote healthy communities by supporting strength-based practices that reduce the risk of suicide. Facebook page:

About A Voice at the Table: A Voice at the Table was founded in 2014 as a companion to the documentary, A Voice at the Table, a call to action to bring the lived experience voices of suicide attempt survivors to all tables within suicide prevention, intervention and postvention. As a grassroots movement, it has since expanded and become the national "home base" forum for the family & friends emotionally impacted & traumatized by the suicidal experiences of loved ones. A movement: a group of people working together to advance their shared ideas. A forum: a place, meeting or medium where ideas and views on a particular concern can be exchanged, in this case, nationally and internationally.

Cocannco Inc. is gearing up to finance the future faces of legal cannabis

Cocannco Inc Logo

Cocannco Inc, Founded 2021

New cannabis accelerator plans shake-up of cannabis industry funding

When people invest in Cocannco they’re investing in the disruption of an expanding multi-billion-dollar market.”

— Don Clark

SACRAMENTO, CALIFORNIA, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 / — Cannabis legalization is imminent in major global markets, with more than 32 countries implementing some form of legalization in recent years. In the U.S., where cannabis remains illegal at the federal level, nearly 45% of adults live in a jurisdiction where recreational cannabis use is legal. An overwhelming majority of American adults, 91% think that cannabis should be legalized for either adult or medical use, according to Senate Majority Leader Chuck Schumer's recently released discussion draft of a bill to decriminalize the drug.

Changing attitudes toward cannabis is no doubt a factor in market growth and upward consumer trends. Industry consultancy New Frontier Data reports that in the U.S., legal cannabis sales are poised to surpass the USD $50 billion mark in 2025. The consultancy also estimates that there are over 268 million cannabis consumers globally – a growing base of users who could help advance social acceptance and normalization of cannabis use. The global legal cannabis market is expected to reach USD $70.6 billion by 2028, expanding at a CAGR of 26.7% from 2021 to 2028. However, despite the massive opportunities for emerging cannabis-related companies to scale, a major issue in the industry is slowing growth: funding.

Many traditional lenders stay away from offering services to cannabis companies because they are deemed high risk. As a result, viable cannabis industry participants are left without the financial support that a typical retail business would usually receive. Subsequently it’s difficult to prove credibility without relevant regulations and financial tracking in place.

This is where the Cocannco team comes in. Cocannco Inc., an accelerator exclusively focused on cannabis, intends to provide funding and access to a comprehensive business network. Run by a team of industry insiders with banking, compliance, and operations backgrounds, Cocannco funds and develops scalable cannabis companies across the value chain.

“When people invest in Cocannco they’re investing in the disruption of an expanding multi-billion-dollar market,” said Don Clark, COO of the company. “We believe everyone deserves access to one of the fastest-growing industries in the world. Through our platform, we hope to provide a pathway for them to own it.”

Rich Thomas, Chief Executive Officer

Rich Thomas brings a wealth of experience in designing, developing, and distributing lifestyle brands. After founding alcoholic spirits company Jewel Lines Products, Thomas helped to develop and launch the Beats by Dr. Dre product line for Monster Cable Products Inc. He is also the CEO of Green Cures & Botanical Distribution, Inc. where he leads the wholesale and retail of hemp and CBD-infused nutritional, sports, alcoholic spirits, and body care products.

Don Clark, Chief Operating Officer

With over 45 years of experience in commercial and residential mortgages, lending compliance and private lender licensing, Don Clark understands mortgage banking and financing end-to-end. As CEO of Clearly California Products, he has led the company’s singular focus on distributing high-quality products in California through licensing agreements.

Evan Clark, Secretary and Treasurer

Evan Clark is the founder and creative director of Spectrum Experience LLC, a full-service communications firm that crafts innovative strategies for companies, causes, and campaigns dedicated to changing the world. With an extensive background in creative marketing and political advocacy, Clark began consulting for Green Cures & Botanicals Distribution, Inc. in 2019 and now advises multiple cannabis brands on strategy development.

As the legal cannabis industry grows, Cocannco offers its portfolio companies unparalleled support in navigating the evolving space, and investors an opportunity to buy in at the ground level. “By 2024 cannabis businesses in the U.S. are estimated to grow to USD $130 billion annually,” Thomas added. “We know that early investors who find the most scalable and intriguing companies will own a piece of that future wealth.” Cocannco already has definitive agreements in place to leverage strategic partnerships in the U.S., like in California, the country’s largest cannabis economy at USD $3.5 billion.

About Cocannco Inc.

Cocannco is a cannabis business accelerator that actively seeks to fund scalable companies that have the potential to lead the market. With an initial focus on California and an eye on national expansion, Cocannco’s team of industry experts in banking and compliance are committed to building high-quality brands that can meet rising cannabis consumer demands in North American markets.

Environmental Groups Urge Governor Inslee to Appoint New Fish & Wildlife Commissioners

Request Points to Need for Reform After Auditor’s Report Reveals Problems in Agency Culture

We are at a turning point for the direction of the state Department of Fish and Wildlife, and for the survival of many fish and wildlife species within the state.”

— Washington Wildlife First Interim Executive Director David P. Linn

SEATTLE, WASHINGTON, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 / — Representatives from twelve environmental and wildlife protection organizations sent a letter to Washington Governor Jay Inslee this week, urging him to immediately appoint two new members to the Washington Fish and Wildlife Commission.

One seat on the nine-member Commission is currently vacant, while Chairman Larry Carpenter has continued to serve on the Commission even though his term ended nearly a year ago. The Commission sets fish and wildlife policy and has supervisory authority over the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“We are at a turning point for the direction of the Fish and Wildlife Commission, and for the survival of many fish and wildlife species within the state,” said David P. Linn, interim executive director for Washington Wildlife First, a new state nonprofit dedicated to reforming the state’s wildlife management.

“In order to effectively cope with the dual threats of climate change and the accelerating loss of biodiversity, we need to have a full Commission in place that values and understands science, has a commitment to ethical wildlife management, and is dedicated to conserving our fish and wildlife species,” Linn said.

This request to the Governor comes a week after the Washington State Auditor’s Office released a performance audit on the workplace culture at the Department of Fish and Wildlife.

“The auditor’s report confirmed what people within the Department have long been telling us,” said Claire Loebs Davis, president of Washington Wildlife First.

“There are many excellent scientists, enforcement officers, conflict specialists and other employees within the Department, who have dedicated their careers to protecting and conserving Washington’s fish and wildlife.” Davis said. “But they cannot do their jobs when they are working in a hostile environment, where unprofessional, unethical, and illegal behavior is rampant, supervisors are not held accountable, employees are bullied, and people fear retaliation for speaking out.”

The auditor found that one in ten WDFW employees has directly witnessed someone within the Department committing a legal or ethical violation in the past year, while a slightly larger number have directly suffered from retaliation after reporting illegal and unethical behavior, disagreeing with a supervisor—and even, in some cases, for talking to the auditors.

More than 25% of employees interviewed reported incidents of sexual discrimination, while more than 20% of those surveyed had been bullied at work, often due to gender. Although women comprise more than half the workforce in other state agencies, less than one-third of WDFW employees are women.

“The good ole’ boys club is alive and well at WDFW,” Davis said. “Employees have been asking Department managers and Fish and Wildlife Commissioners for help for a long time, but nobody has been listening. We are hoping Governor Inslee will show he is listening now.”

Linn said many employees within the Department are desperate for new leadership at the Commission.

“We need Fish and Wildlife commissioners who will not only follow science, but who will have the dedication and moral compass to guide the agency in a new direction,” Linn said. “We are calling on Governor Inslee to take a stand, not only for the state’s fish and wildlife, but for the brave employees who risked their jobs by speaking to the state auditor. They need to know that their voices have been heard.”

Joining Washington Wildlife First in the letter to Governor Inslee are Cascadia Wildlands, Center for Biological Diversity, Defenders of Wildlife, Humane Society of the United States, Kettle Range Conservation Group, Mountain Lion Foundation, Northwest Animal Rights Network, Predator Defense, Western Watersheds Project, Western Wildlife Outreach, and WildEarth Guardians.

Released Today — Tech to Table: 25 Innovators Reimagining Food

Tech to Table by Richard Munson

Island Press Logo

Tech to Table, Richard Munson introduces readers to twenty-five innovators driving solutions to the biggest problems created by industrialized food.

Richard Munson skillfully tells the tale of those food sustainability heroes deploying 21st century technology to ensure our continued survival. Their stories in this book give me hope!”

— Paul Shapiro, author of "Clean Meat"

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 / — You may have eaten a burger made from plants or even stem cells, strawberries picked by robots, lettuce grown in urban warehouses, or a pastry created with a 3-D printer. Such innovations might just save your health and the planet’s, and they reveal how creative entrepreneurs are challenging Big Ag’s legacy of pollution, malnutrition, and animal cruelty.

In "Tech to Table: 25 Innovators Reimagining Food" (Publication Date: September 23, 2021), Richard Munson introduces readers to twenty-five innovators driving solutions to the biggest problems created by industrialized food. With short, deftly crafted profiles, he presents a fascinating preview of the future of food and highlights the stories of the entrepreneurs at the forefront of this revolution. While they come from diverse identities, backgrounds, places, and professions, they all share an outsider’s perspective and an ambition to rethink the food system.

"Tech to Table" highlights five overarching challenges facing farms and food: rethinking how we deliver proteins, from cultured meats to ‘tuna’ from tomatoes; cutting food waste with produce grown near consumers in urban warehouses and crops tracked by blockchain; decreasing pesticides through robotic weed pickers; finding better ways to nourish plants and soil, from precision watering to soil probiotics; and reducing greenhouse gas emissions with carbon negative vodka as well as animal-feed supplements that block a cow’s methane burbs.

Under Big Ag, toxins and hunger have festered, while organic farming, despite decades of appeals, accounts for less than one percent of US croplands. Entrepreneurial innovators present a third path forward, one where new technologies help farmers, consumers, rural communities, and the environment. With agricultural-technology startups soaring by 80% annually since 2012 and attracting $30 billion in direct investment in 2020, Munson argues that the global agriculture industry is poised for disruption.

While not every invention will succeed long-term, each marks a fundamental change in our approach to sustainably feeding the world. Munson’s profiles offer an inspiring look at the coming food revolution.

Richard Munson is the author of several books, most recently "Tesla: Inventor of the Modern." He also has written a biography of Jacques Cousteau, the undersea explorer and filmmaker; a history of electricity; and a behind-the-scenes look at how congressional appropriators spend taxpayer money. Now based near Chicago, he has worked on environmental and clean-energy issues at non-profits, within universities, in the private sector, and on Capitol Hill.

Founded in 1984, Island Press works to stimulate, shape, and communicate the information that is essential for solving environmental problems. Today, with more than 1,000 titles in print and some 30 new releases each year, it is the nation’s leading publisher of books on environmental issues.

It was never my intention to create a full outdoor program, but when you are handed something that could make this world a little better for young people, you jump in with both feet.”

— Kori Stack, Head of School, Acton Academy

KENNEBUNKPORT, ME, UNITED STATES, September 23, 2021 / — The past 18 months have been difficult for so many. One of the most effective ways that many have dealt with the stress of the ongoing pandemic has been connecting with nature. In children, nature has been proven to improve all aspects of child development including physical, cognitive, social, and emotional. It grows resilience, creativity, self-confidence, and initiative.

Starting on Monday, October 4, 2021 Acton Academy Kennebunkport is opening an expanded outdoor program for children aged 0-14 years old, and parents & tots aged 0-4.

“It was never my intention to create a full outdoor program, but life is funny that way and sometimes when all of the right things come together and you are handed something that could make this world a little better for young people, you jump in with both feet. I truly, in my heart, believe that what we are creating will have lasting benefits for our community – the kind of thing that gives you butterflies because you know it's going to be magical,” said Kori Stack, head of school at Acton Academy.

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, September 23, 2021 / — Shortage of labor and increasing demand for advanced agriculture tools in many countries is driving the demand for agriculture robots or agribots. Agribots are used in farmlands for pruning, weeding and spraying pesticides and herbicides. They are connected to tractors for spraying water, seeds, pesticides, nutrients and harvesting. For instance, Energid Citrus Picking Robot System picks an orange every two seconds from a tree, thus enhancing productivity and thereby limiting the need for agricultural labor.

Asia Pacific was the largest region in the global crop production market, accounting for 66% of the market in 2020. South America was the second largest region accounting for 8% of the global market. Middle East was the smallest region in the global crop production market.

The global crop production market size is expected to grow from $4433.51 billion in 2020 to $4604.67 billion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 3.9%.
