KYield and Praxis form Strategic Alliance to Convert Oil & Gas Platforms for Offshore Aquaculture and Renewable Energy Production

RIO RANCHO, N.M. -- KYield, Inc. announced today a strategic alliance with Praxis Drilling and Completion, LLC, for the purpose of converting offshore oil and gas platforms to sustainable food and energy production.

"KYield has performed deep dives in AI for most industries, including energy and offshore platforms following the Deepwater Horizon oil spill," said Mark Montgomery, founder and CEO of KYield. "We're pleased to form a strategic alliance with Praxis to apply our KOS as the AI OS for offshore platforms."

The KOS is a data-centric AI OS with embedded governance, security, prevention, and automation. The modular system design is universal and can be applied at any scale, from the largest enterprise to small teams or industrial applications.

Praxis is an experienced offshore specialist based in Texas. The company is in discussions to convert existing platforms to aquaculture and low-carbon energy production. The alliance agreement provides limited exclusivity for the KOS to be used for offshore platform conversions, and extends a minority equity position to KYield in a new entity that will own and operate the platforms.

"We anticipate extensive use of automation for cost savings made possible with the KOS, and to aid in health, safety, environment, and quality," said Robert Young, CEO of Praxis. "There are over 5,000 offshore platforms to be decommissioned. Our aim is to recycle platforms for social benefit in developing nations by producing sustainable food and energy."

The initial focus for the alliance is to convert idle offshore platforms to other uses, including for off-shore fish farming and renewable energy such as green hydrogen. KYield will provide precision third-party analytics, monitoring, and reporting to blue and green bondholders, and for ESG certification.

About KYield:

Scarlet Ravin’s White Fox Medicinals Invokes Traditional Herbal Healing with Traveling Storefront Medicine Wagon

LOS OJOS, N.M. -- Herbal health enthusiast Scarlet Ravin has enjoyed a supportive counterculture following since the 2007 launch of her White Fox Medicinals, a CBD infused topical line of health and beauty mixtures.

When she eventually left Colorado for California, her business expanded with bottling, branding, and wider distribution. Today however, White Fox Medicinals rests nestled in the northern mountains of New Mexico, with Ravin crafting and selling her soul healing remedies via the White Fox Medicine Wagon, a traveling storefront tribute to ancient and traditional practices.

While still available online, Ravin is going against the grain and seeking to nurture her local community with hands-on service that harkens earlier times and better days.

"While most business are moving into meta space, I feel compelled to create a business module that honors healing from a heart attuned space," explains White Fox Medicinals founder and creator, Scarlet Ravin. "The 1900's style gypsy medicine wagon is my antidote to being cancelled across social media. Medicine is love from the maker and connecting to the roots from which it came. Servicing my community, in person, with a traveling store, redeems what White Fox Medicine has always been about, which is plant based, spirit infused preventative care, that honors the earth and her animals."

From CBD infused body oils and soothing skin balms to crystal enhanced bath salts and scrubs to cosmically aligned herb teas, Ravin has expanded with novel therapeutics that reflect the locally grown sage made available from her New Mexico environment. The Los Ojos Sage Soap and Miracle Balm body potion are part of her newly launched 100% natural New Mexico desert restorative offerings.

"White Fox Medicine has been able to survive the pandemic because our clientele appreciates the value of herbal alchemy as a long-term recipe for multi-layered restoration," notes Ravin. "Now more than ever, with so much of our lives compromised and sacrificed in our post pandemic world, it is important to be able to access sustenance that still vibrates with the high

frequency essence of Mother Earth. I'm extremely excited to present the White Fox Medicine Wagon as a reminder of our early curative roots and power."

Scarlet Ravin has always enjoyed a special relationship with plants. Her deep love for plants and animals led her to leave behind chemical-based products and explore alternative cures. White Fox Medicine(tm) was born and through Scarlet's spiritual insight she found herself channeling formulas and potions that her customers came to love.

The cannabis community found her CBD imbued creations to be exceptional, with rave reviews from High Times, Weedmaps and Rolling Stone. As an international best-selling author, Scarlet enjoys public speaking while she allows higher wisdom to come through her. Her newest book "Psilocybin Transmissions" is a channeled book explaining the benefits of the sacred plant.

White Fox Medicinals are packaged in biophotonic glass packaging offering unique filtering to both protect and revitalize the contents while amazingly extending the shelf life. Animal totems grace each label as another layer that harkens the remembrance of ancient rituals. Everything is 100% organic and typically made on full moon evenings under the power of prayer before bottled.

As White Fox Medicine continues its mission to educate, heal and support wellness using ingredients straight from the earth, the Medicine Wagon is an important earmark of Scarlet Ravin's commitment to spread love across the planet, one road at a time.

‘FRIDAY THE 13TH’ spin-off, ’13 FANBOY’ Coming to a Theater Near You

RUIDOSO, N.M. -- 13 Fanboy LLC announces: After 12 years without a "FRIDAY THE 13TH" film, fans are hungry for new blood. Enter Deborah Voorhees (yes, that is her real name), star of "FRIDAY THE 13TH part 5," and director of the October 22, 2021 horror film "13 FANBOY."

With "FRIDAY THE 13TH" tied up in legal battles fans are not likely to see the iconic killer Jason Voorhees return to Camp Crystal Lake anytime soon.

"We can't bring you an official 'FRIDAY THE 13TH' movie," says producer Joel Paul Reisig. "That's why Deborah Voorhees and I sat down and created this new franchise."

Reisig's previous credits include over 20 feature films; his most recent one being picked up by Universal Studios. "We really listened to the fans," says Voorhees, who also directed the film and plays a small role. "We wanted to stay true to the legionary movies of the 80s. This is truly a throwback film by fans and for fans."

"13 FANBOY" is about an obsessed fan who stalks (and kills) his favorite actresses from the original "FRIDAY THE 13TH" and "HALLOWEEN" films. The story follows Kelsie Voorhees, who as a child witnesses the murder of her grandmother, "FRIDAY THE 13TH" actress Deborah Voorhees, at the hands of a crazed fanboy. As an adult, Kelsie discovers her grandmother isn't the only victim and the killer is still hunting his favorite "FRIDAY THE 13TH" cast members and iconic scream queens to slaughter.

"Horror fans are the best," says Voorhees, "but every once in a while, you get that one that feels scary. I've received texts saying, 'I'm watching you right now,' or 'wouldn't it be cool if you were killed like you died in the film?'"

The cast includes actors and actresses from the original 80s films, iconic scream queens playing fictionalized versions of themselves. The star lineup includes Cory Feldman, Kane Hodder, C.J. Graham, Tracie Savage, Judi Aronson and many more from the original series. Legendary actress Dee Wallace ("HALLOWEEN," "CUJO," "CRITTERS," "THE HILLS HAVE EYES," "THE HOLLOWING," and "E.T.") leads the film. Adrienne King, star of the original "FRIDAY THE 13TH" passed on appearing in "13 FANBOY," stating that the film was "too real, too scary."

"13 FANBOY" is distributed by Deskpop Entertainment, it will play in limited theaters in North America and London, opening on October 22, 2021. It will also be available for purchase on all major VOD networks on the same day.

Please visit our website https://www.13fanboy.com/ to view the trailer, locations showing the film, and more information.

Sunpro Solar, Unirac Donate Solar Installation to Joy Junction

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- Sunpro Solar, a national leader in residential solar power, joins Unirac, a solar mount manufacturer, on a mission to donate and install solar energy panels that will power facilities for Joy Junction, a homeless shelter in Albuquerque, New Mexico.

Joy Junction provides assistance to the homeless population and underserved families and individuals in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Unlike other shelters in the area, the organization believes that no one should be turned away and that families should be kept together.

In light of COVID-19, many in the community are left vulnerable and without the means to self-quarantine or shelter-in-place; a situation that causes a significant draw on the resources Joy Junction needs to do its work - dramatically more than pre-pandemic.

The donated solar installation from Sunpro Solar will make sure that hundreds of dollars every month are used to support Joy Junction's efforts in the community and not diverted to pay for electricity costs. Solar power provides a cost-saving solution for the shelter that will last long after the pandemic has passed.

"If the COVID-19 pandemic has shown us anything about our [solar] industry, it is that we are resilient, we are tenacious, and we care about our fellow human beings," says Unirac's Karen Paramanandam.

"Our company was founded with the mission to change lives and make our communities a better place," said Marc Jones, Founder and CEO of Sunpro Solar. "We are proud to partner with great companies like Unirac to help support Joy Junction's world-changing work."

Both Sunpro and Unirac encourage residents in the Albuquerque area to visit http://www.joyjunction.org/how-to-help/ for other ways to help Joy Junction in its work with the homeless and vulnerable.

About Sunpro Solar:

Sunpro Solar is a top solar company in the U.S. that provides affordable solar energy and battery storage solutions to homeowners nationwide. Sunpro Solar was named 5th largest residential solar installer in the U.S. by Solar Power World Magazine in July 2020. An Inc. 500 company, Sunpro Solar continues to expand as the demand for home solar in the United States rapidly increases. Sunpro Solar has headquarters in Louisiana and currently operates in 15 states. For more information visit https://www.gosunpro.com/.

Eloquent Light Editions Launches New Photography Book – The Light of Days Gone By: Photographs by Craig Varjabedian

SANTA FE, N.M. -- Eloquent Light Editions announces a new photography book by award-winning photographer Craig Varjabedian, "The Light of Days Gone By," which was 45 years in the making. It celebrates with stunning imagery the journey of a photographer and the beautiful light he has witnessed and captured along the way. This beautiful hardcover book retails for $34.95 and is available from the photographer's website Studio Shoppe or Amazon.com.

"The Light of Days Gone By" is a testament to Varjabedian's vision and many years of hard work and will appeal to anyone who appreciates fine photography. Varjabedian's photographs from the magnificent red hills of Ghost Ranch and gleaming white dunes of White Sands to more faraway places - from strong Native Americans to weathered cowboys and more - these expansive landscapes and intimate portraits are all presented in this beautifully printed book.

The 48 color and black & white photographs were carefully curated by Varjabedian's long time studio director Cindy Lane, to not only share the breadth of this photographer's career but also to reveal relationships between individual images and from the themes he has explored over the years.

"Working as a photographer has given me the opportunity to constantly be learning something from my experiences behind the camera. For me it's more than just about making pretty pictures-that's nice certainly - but it's more about having the opportunity to observe, to be a witness to the quintessential beauty of it all," says Craig Varjabedian.

"The Light of Days Gone By" includes two essays. In "Past Light in this Present Time," Cindy Lane writes about working and collaborating together for 30 years with the artist and observes that the authenticity of these photographs frequently evokes powerful emotions in the viewer. And in "On the Power of Memory and Trees," artist Myra Bullington looks not only at the importance of photographs as an aid to memory but also shares an appreciation gained from many years of being a creative observer and thoughtful commentator on the photographer's work.

"The Light of Days Gone By" is also being presented as a 3D virtual exhibition by Converge Las Cruces Fine Art. View this beautiful interactive showcase here: https://www.convergelascruces.com/craig-varjabedian-the-light-of-days-gone-by

"Craig Varjabedian's photography captures, with arresting clarity, the ineffable whispers of time and spirit layered deep in New Mexico's cultural landscape. Through the artful combination of his compassionate eye and technical virtuosity, he evokes the past in the present and the holy in the everyday," says Catherine Whitney, Museum Curator.

About Craig Varjabedian

4Ry, USDA and Texas A&M AgriLife to Develop Innovative Spraying Technology for Cattle Fever Ticks

ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. -- 4Ry Inc. announced today that 4Ry(R) and Texas A&M AgriLife Research have signed a research agreement. They will collaborate with the USDA's Agricultural Research Service (ARS) to more efficiently and effectively spray cattle to eliminate cattle fever ticks.

Cattle fever ticks are vectors of pathogens causing bovine babesiosis, also known as cattle tick fever, and are the focus of the US Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program. The project will adapt 4Ry's Charge Injected Precision Spraying (ChIPS)(TM) for conductive fluids. Many pesticides registered to spray cattle are water-based, which makes them conductive.

Dr. Arnold Kelly, PhD, 4ry's Chief Technology Officer and cofounder, will modify 4Ry's patented Spray Triode Atomizer, the heart of the ChIPS system. Pete Teel, PhD, Texas A&M AgriLife Research entomologist, regents professor and interim department head, Department of Entomology will lead the project and provide administrative guidance. Field testing will be conducted by Texas A&M AgriLife Research and USDA ARS at the USDA-ARS Cattle Fever Tick Research Laboratory in Edinburg, Texas.

Meeting all the project milestones will document that the ChIPS system allows for more complete and targeted coverage of cattle with fewer environmental and operator health hazards. Charged spray droplets are attracted to the cow and thoroughly coat all areas with little aerosol drift or overspray. By reducing the amount of fluid sprayed and wasted, ChIPS more efficiently covers cattle, generates substantial cost savings, and reduces health and environmental risks.

"Successful development of our sprayer for conductive fluids will allow ranchers to integrate this technology for sustainable eradication of the invasive fever ticks that cost the cattle industry millions of dollars before they were eliminated from the U.S.," said David Bird, 4Ry's CEO. "The tick problem is particularly bad in South Texas counties that border Mexico. Our modified sprayer will also improve management of other livestock pests, so it will be welcomed wherever those pests are found in association with cattle production."

"Texas A&M AgriLife Research and the USDA, Agricultural Research Service have a long history of dedicated joint research efforts in support of the US Cattle Industry and the regulatory agencies responsible for the U.S. Cattle Fever Tick Eradication Program," Teel said. "The opportunity to collaborate with 4Ry, Inc., on the development and application of this new technology could significantly improve how cattle receive acaricide treatment to prevent the re-establishment of cattle fever ticks in the U.S."

About 4Ry

4Ry is based in Albuquerque. It is commercializing charge-injected atomization and spraying technologies invented by Dr. Arnold Kelly. For more information, please visit http://www.4rysprays.com.
