VANCOUVER, British Columbia, March 14, 2019 /PRNewswire/ — ParcelPal Technology Inc., (PKG.CN) (PT0.F) (PTNYF) (“ParcelPal” or the “Company”) – is pleased to announce it’s signed a cannabis distribution agreement with Kiaro, a Vancouver based cannabis retailer.

Further to ParcelPal’s cannabis strategy announced on September 13, 2018, the Company has completed an additional cannabis distribution agreement with Kiaro for the delivery of cannabis products through Kiaro’s physical and digital retail channels. The initiative will consist of:

  • Distribution: ParcelPal and Kiaro will jointly develop an optimal roadmap for the distribution of adult use cannabis, ultimately creating the ‘Amazon Effect’ within the cannabis industry.
  • Accessibility: The companies will integrate their technology platform to enhance the user experience and improve product accessibility.
  • Compliance: All cannabis products delivered will be within parameters set by all the relevant regulatory bodies.
  • Safety: Both companies are dedicated to socially responsible cannabis retail and, by enabling cannabis delivery within the hour, hope to deter cannabis impaired driving.

This marks the Company’s second strategic partnership to manage cannabis deliveries through the omnichannel platforms of Canadian retailers. Previously ParcelPal announced a similar agreement with Choom Holdings: https://www.newswire.ca/news-releases/parcelpal-signs-agreement-for-marijuana-distribution-with-choom-holdings-inc-694498251.html

President and CEO Kelly Abbott States, “We are extremely excited to sign a distribution agreement with Kiaro and we will immediately begin planning and executing for all last mile operations. Our objective is to become the Uber of cannabis in Canada and this takes us one step closer to our goal.” Abbott continues, “Cannabis delivery is expensive and often through antiquated courier services – with consumers waiting over a week to receive their items. With ParcelPal, customers will receive their cannabis products safely within an hour. Our technology enables seamless integration with any cannabis retail outlet or eCommerce platform.”

President and CEO of Kiaro, Daniel Petrov states, “The distribution partnership with ParcelPal illustrates our ongoing commitment to normalize cannabis use, by improving product accessibility. Cannabis can enhance life enjoyment, when used responsibly, and the agreement enables us to support more Canadians in this pursuit. By expediting cannabis delivery, we hope to legitimize the industry and encourage cannabis curiosity, exploration and education.”

Customers who order cannabis or alcohol through the ParcelPal platform will be required to upload and verify their identities. Users that are under the age within their jurisdictions will not be allowed into this vertical on the application. The identity verification system ensures that the person is of age and that the identity is in fact real, and it is checked twice – once before and once upon delivery. Consumers who order product will have to be the person to receive the order. ParcelPal’s technology complies with all local, provincial and federal laws.

Liberty Defense (SCAN.V) (LDDFF) Enters Cruise Industry, Signs Agreement with Port Tampa Bay

stock price news

TAMPA, FL and VANCOUVER , Oct. 28, 2019 /CNW/ – Liberty Defense Holdings Ltd. (” Liberty “) (TSXV: SCAN; FRANKFURT : LD2; OTCQB: LDDFF), a leading concealed weapons detection solutions company, is announcing that it has signed a collaboration agreement (“CoA”) with Port Tampa Bay to beta test HEXWAVE.

[REPORT] 1 Stock is Positioning to Disrupt a Billion Dollar Industry Creating Opportunity & Saving Lives

The Tampa Bay /Orlando I-4 Corridor region is the fastest growing region of the state, home to more than eight million residents and welcoming over 60 million visitors per year.

Between the years 2007 and 2017, total cruise ship passenger capacity grew by 25 per cent in North America , with the following 10 years estimated to see a further 41 per cent increase, according to a 2017 report.

Beta testing involves testing HEXWAVE in a live environment such as Port Tampa Bay with the initial Alpha testing to occur at Liberty’s Center of Excellence laboratory in Atlanta .

HEXWAVE uses low-power, radar imaging and artificial intelligence, primarily to detect and identify weapons. The system is built to be modular and scalable and may be used both indoors and outdoors, providing security teams with a flexible and effective security solution. These characteristics also have the ability to enable a layered defense strategy for a venue, meaning the ability to detect threats at the perimeter of the property without obstructing the movement of large groups of people.

” Port Tampa Bay will be an excellent partner on this project. The port will be able to provide Liberty with new learning opportunities by opening up access to the unique aspects of security for cruise lines, which have frequent vacationers traveling in and out of Florida ,” said Bill Riker , CEO of Liberty Defense. “The port environment will bring its own set of challenges from an operational perspective. Ultimately, the data’s integration into our product development efforts will be invaluable,” added Riker.

Port Tampa Bay President/CEO Paul Anderson said, “Having recently celebrated over one million cruise ship passengers in one fiscal year for the first time in our history, its imperative that we continue to seek opportunities to evaluate technologies like those developed by Liberty Defense. The potential of HEXWAVE’s high throughput is very appealing to us because it provides a new way to strengthen our security posture and ensure the safety of all passengers without slowing down the flow of visitor traffic. We are looking forward to working with Liberty Defense to test this new technology that will help us to stay ahead of potential threats.”

This beta testing phase is a key part of HEXWAVE’s development process. Testing the system in operational and diverse facilities can help to ensure that it is aligned to market requirements. Beta testing is expected to begin later in 2019 and progress into 2020. Liberty will also beta test HEXWAVE at FC Bayern Munich’s Allianz Arena in Germany , Rogers Arena in Vancouver, British Columbia , Maryland Stadium Authority’s Camden Yards Complex, in the state of Utah , with the Virginia Division of Capitol Police, in Sleiman shopping centers, in a Hindu temple, in the Metro Toronto Convention Centre, in Toronto Pearson International Airport, and with the University of Wisconsin Police Department.

Are These Stocks To Buy Or Sell: Snap (SNAP), Shake Shack (SHAK)

After A Strong First Half, What’s Next For These Two Stock?

 Several stocks have mustered monster returns this year with some companies with market caps of more than $200 million more than doubling. Among the companies that have seen their stocks more than doubled this year are social media company Snap (NYSE: SNAP) and burger chain Shake Shack (NYSE: SHAK).

Snap Overcame a Rough 2018

Snap is the biggest social medial winner this year following last year’s disappointments. The parent of chatting app Snapchat’s 2018 was stained by the failure of its wearable tech. There was also a poor reception of its app update and weakening platform growth. Snap stock plummeted after it failed to launch a comeback.

In an unlikely performance, the company saw its revenue soar 48%. This was a rare occurrence for a company that appeared to be peaking in 2018. Currently, the company has over 203 million daily active users using its app. Its ability for monetization seems to be accelerating. The company is capitalizing on its target population which is usually young people.

Shake Shack Benefitting from Third Party Delivery Apps

Shake Shack is the only restaurant stock that has more than doubled this year. This is even after most investors thought that its valuation was high at the beginning of 2019. The chain’s revenue jumped 31% in Q2 as sharp expansion, as well as a 3.6% upturn in comps, continues to fuel its top-line rally. This was exciting news on the bottom line as the company missed Wall Street estimates as it has been in the last four quarters.

The company has also improved its guidance. It has also benefitted from third-party apps offering restaurant operators an alternative of beefing up takeout orders. Shake Shack stock is still trading at 6 times its forward sales. This may be a steep valuation for the stock more so considering it is a restaurant industry stock. The company is, however, improving its fundamentals which are instrumental in overcoming valuation concerns.
