The acquisition of Needle Rock Farms includes 240 acres of farmland, water rights, all farm equipment, barns, greenhouses and irrigation system.

We are excited to add Needle Rock Farms to our capabilities… With the addition of the farm, we are no longer dependent on other farmers to meet the needs of our brand of consumer products.”

— Leslie Buttorff (CEO of Panacea)

GOLDEN, CO, UNITED STATES, February 4, 2020 / — Panacea Life Sciences, Inc. is pleased to announce its acquisition of Needle Rock Farms (NRF), located in the town of Crawford on the western slope of Colorado. Adam and Julia Desmond founded Needle Rock Farms CBD in 2016 and have been growing quality, Colorado hemp for the past five years. Panacea’s procurement includes 240 acres of farmland, water rights, all the farm equipment, barns, greenhouses, and irrigation system. The purchase also includes the 2019 hemp grow cycle. With NRF’s state-of-the-art outdoor grow facility and use of only mountain spring water from onsite springs and creeks, it embodies the true spirit of Colorado.

The Desmonds are excited for this new opportunity as “the expansion with Panacea and this partnership emphasizes each company’s commitment to complete vertical integration within the CBD industry, and it allows Panacea to have a chain of custody from seed to end products through the entire process.” Panacea’s ability to manage the entire supply chain is important not only to the two companies but to Panacea customers, contract manufacturing partners and key distribution partners such as Charkit. As a leading provider of raw materials and ingredients to the personal care space, Charkit vetted numerous CBD companies and selected Panacea Life Sciences as its exclusive provider due to the company’s commitment to quality, innovation, and complete transparency of the supply chain.

The acquisition purchase price was a combination of cash and stock. The farm is slated to achieve its organic certification in 2020. The plans for Panacea’s hemp farm in 2020 include seed development, experiments with different strains, and leveraging the intellectual capital of our investment partner, 22nd Century (XXII).

XXII was granted an exclusive sublicense in the United States and a co-exclusive sublicense in the remainder of the world, excluding Canada, to patents and patent applications relating to the cannabis plant that are required for the production of cannabinoids, the major active ingredients in the cannabis plant.

Leslie Buttorff, CEO of Panacea commented that “Panacea plans to use the XXII strains in the 2020 and 2021 grow cycles. We are excited to add Needle Rock Farms to our capabilities and it adds to our full seed to sale capabilities. With the addition of the farm, we are no longer dependent on other farmers to meet the needs of our brand of consumer products.”

Black Natural Olives from Greece Seen as a Healthy Alternative

Olive You-European Table Olives Campaign

European Black Natural Olives from Greece are viewed as a healthy alternative to the more familiar Commercial Black Olives

NEW YORK CITY, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, February 3, 2020 / — Grown naturally, without artificial ripening methods, European Black Natural Olives from Greece are viewed as a healthy alternative to the more familiar Commercial Black Olives. 

Due to the fact that European Black Natural Olives from Greece ripen naturally on the tree without artificial methods, they are seen as healthier than Commercial Black Olives, which are ripened and colored by artificial methods. Commercial trade types, like those mentioned here, are defined by Codex Alimentarius International Food Standards. This Commercial type of European Black Natural Olives has been traditionally produced in Greece for decades, with olive growers collecting them manually, by handpicking the naturally ripe black olives daily from the olive trees, to be transported to the processing plants, where these type of commercial black natural olives are exported to the United States and other worldwide markets.

In addition to the mandatory labeling of the “Black Natural Olives” on their packaging, European Black Natural Olives can be easily be differentiated when checked closely with the naked eye. One can easily see that the olives are all a bit different in color between them, and have minor defects, as anything handcrafted-handmade are never the same between them, such as in shoes or clothing, so it goes with Natural Black Olives, they are never the same amongst themselves!

European Black Natural Olives from Greece offer great benefits as they retain their original nutrients, in comparison to artificial processing techniques applied by other olive producing countries to Black Olives that greatly reduce the olive’s nutrients.
The Greek olive industry is optimistic after The Office of the United States Trade Representative exempted Greek olives from the latest round of Retaliatory Tariffs on the European Union. Commercial Black Olives, like those imported from Spain, were hit with a 25% tariff, opening opportunities for Greece to increase its presence in the US market.

Within the framework of the Olive You– European Table Olives Campaign, we invite you to learn more about these European Black Natural Olives, at our “European Black Natural Olives from Greece" press event, where we will reveal; why they were exempted from tariffs, how beneficial they are for your health, and how to differentiate them from artificial Black Olives.

Where: Kyma Flatiron:15 W 18th St, New York, NY 10011
When: Thursday February 27th2020
Time:  6:30pm-8:30 pm
What:  European Natural Black Olives from Greece- Press Event
Who Should Attend: Members of the Press, Journalists, Influencers, Bloggers, Health Professionals, Foodies, Wellness enthusiasts.

           Success Plan Media – PR Desk    

PEMETE’S MISSION: The 3-year EU co-financed campaign aims to generate awareness and demand for European table olives from Greece in 13 countries around the globe (Germany, Austria, France, UK, Poland, Sweden, USA, Canada, Russia, Australia, Norway, Saudi Arabia and UAE). The campaign launched in 2017 will run until February 2020 through a wide variety of actions – advertising, events, master-classes, in store tastings, trade shows, press relations etc. – informing consumers and professionals about the unique quality and flavor of the most popular olive, thus increasing table olives exports.

ABOUT PEMETE: PEMETE (Panhellenic Association of Table Olive Processors, Packers and Exporters) is a professional association, founded in 1970, that promotes the interests of table olive exporters. The members of PEMETE are Greek exporting table olive processing, packaging and exporting companies. All of them process their end products in accordance with the existing Food Safety Regulation 852/2004. 

The 53 member-companies of PEMETE represent more than 90% of Greece’s exports of table olives to more than 100 countries. These companies export some outstanding and unique Greek table olive varieties, such as: “Konservolia” farmed in Central Greece, “Chalkidiki” in Northern Greece, and “Kalamata”, mainly but not exclusively – farmed in the regions of Etoloakarnania, Laconia and Phtiotida. The greatest advantage of Greek table olives is that the olives “ripen” naturally on the olive trees.

The Sixties Turned Upside Down by Elise Frances Miller

Book Cover, The Berkeley Girl In Paris, 1967

The Berkeley Girl In Paris, 1967 by Miller

The Berkeley Girl: Rendezvous in London

The Berkeley Girl: Rendezvous in London

6,251 Americans have been killed in war since 2001. 45,170 American soldiers have been wounded. In the sixties we had anti-war protests. Where is everybody?

… now, with no draft, no one protests, or even debates, our perpetual state of war…”

— Elise Frances Miller

SAN MATEO, CA, USA, February 2, 2020 / — The Sixties Turned Upside Down by Elise Frances Miller

My friends who were late 1960s and early 70s college students like to reminisce about the positive social and political outcomes of our youthful actions. We generally focus on civil rights for varieties of underrepresented groups in America, including women. But what I rarely hear mentioned is one of the most profound results for both individuals and society: the abolition of the military draft.
Today, every member of the various military branches is there because they joined up. Initially inspired to enlist by patriotism after the 9/11/2001 attacks, many continue to do so for that reason today. Others, among them the very people who were fighting for their civil rights in the 1960s and 70s, are lured by the economic and educational opportunities.
In 2002, my neighbor was a single mother named Becky with one son named Michael. Michael had taken a few dollars from us to help us move into our San Mateo apartment in 1998, when he was a good-natured, well-muscled kid of 14. Over coffee, as war raged in Afghanistan, Becky revealed that Michael had signed up for the army with a high school recruiter. Then she set her cup down and began to cry. She was overcome with guilt, because she could offer him no viable alternatives. No money for college or adult independence of any kind.
A related story from an earlier era. Since my father’s service as a naval shipbuilder and his innovative ideas regarding machines and electronics earned him an exemption from the World War II draft, he promised my mother that he would find a way to keep my brother out of the Vietnam War. When he failed, my mother was devastated, as was I, his only sibling.
I remember walking around the Berkeley campus in a daze, crying myself to sleep and dreaming about explosions and blood. I drove my roommates crazy. Not just for a few days, but for the next two years, while my brother was deployed to the Lai Khe South Vietnamese army base.
Even without the draft, I imagine such scenes repeated over and over again across America in the 18 years since the shock of the Twin Towers falling. Did you know that 6,251 American soldiers have been killed in war since 2001? And 45,170 American soldiers have been wounded during those wars. That is a lot of people, men and women, and a lot of families torn apart and suffering.
Then what, I now ask myself, if there had never been a Vietnam War? How has the termination of the draft changed America?
When I wrote my two Berkeley Girl books, I was inclined toward pacifism, vehemently opposed Bush’s Iraq War in 2003, and wanted to write about my generation’s war as a warning.
In recent years, the erratic policy of our president has pulled me away from pacifism, though I still believe war is a senseless way to solve conflicts. But in researching and writing my books, then experiencing our present era, I have been struck by the influence of America and its military on the world.
The May 1968 Paris Revolution and a month later, the women’s strike for fair wages at the Dagenham Ford Motor plant, are accurate historical renditions. In both Paris and London, people were aroused by events in America. In Paris, the inspiration came from the Vietnam War protests, and “The Berkeley Girl” was how Parisians thought of my protagonist Janet Magill, who had come from that world-renowned campus, with its “free speech and protest demonstrations.” In London, people were also tasked by the Berkeley spirit to demand equal pay for women’s equal work.
Without dwelling upon our current presidency with its unstable and weird personal war policies, I can bemoan differences which are currently generating never-ending and unwinnable wars. To name just two: social and mass media that did not exist in the 1960s, generating polarization at home and terrorism worldwide; and unregulated, corporate arms sales. We now have a far more dangerous situation—and just imagine if with all this, we still had the draft!
Over the years, I have gone through various phases of appreciation and upset: relief that no one has to suffer as our family did from the draft. Exasperation that now, with no draft, no one protests, or even debates, our perpetual state of war and gargantuan American military budgets.
Many anti-Vietnam war players, ideas and actions began where I live today, in the San Francisco Bay Area. Subsequently, there are peace movements nationwide, but without the draft, there have been no noticeable anti-war protests since an ineffective spattering in 2003.
Where is any effort, by the elected or by groups of voters, to envision a stable, meaningful military policy? With all the myriad and significant issues we have going on today (climate, women, immigration, bigotry, etc.), which instigate forums, cadres of letter-writers, or literally millions taking to the streets, how do we maximize the blessing of the draft’s termination? With history as our instructor, why not choose to be effective and boisterous advocates for a sensible, meaningful international military policy?
