Adding Significant Value to Bring it Home Communities and Veea’s New Real Estate Office of the Future (vREO) Concept

As one of America’s most established real estate news portals, we’re in a unique position to share our knowledge of the market, nationally, regionally and locally.”

— John Giaimo

LAS VEGAS, NV, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / — Realty Times and Bring it Home® Communities announced a massive expansion in television and closed-network programming for the real estate community and consumers. Aptly named Realty Times TV, the news segments will provide a variety of valuable news, statistics and tips for brokerages, agents, homebuyers, and sellers. See an example here or watch on

Content distribution will be handled through a shared alliance with Realty Times, Bring it Home Communities and Veea.
“As one of America’s most established real estate news portals, we’re in a unique position to share our knowledge of the market, nationally, regionally and locally,” stated John Giaimo, President and CEO of Realty Times. “And through our partnerships with Bring it Home Communities as well as the national roll-out of Veea’s real estate office of the future, this provides a phenomenal platform for news procurement and distribution,” Giaimo explains.

Realty Times TV provides various news segments according to its audience. For example, there is a United States feed that’s designed for national coverage. But there are also regional and even local content that can be created for specific audiences. This ties directly into Bring it Home Communities that specialize in an individual metro area.

Custom content can also be developed and delivered with the Veea real estate office of the future (vREO), an ultra-secure communications network for brokerages to connect agents, brokers, and consumers. With the Veea hub, brokers can hold virtual office meetings, have virtual showings, extend online training and much more for a very low monthly cost, eliminating the need for more expensive subscription services.
“Creating original content for the real estate community makes a lot of sense,” according to Giaimo. “With home prices rising and inventory still extremely low, brokers and homebuyers are looking for information, tips and resources like Realty Times TV. We’re excited to bring this next chapter of innovation to the real estate industry,” Giaimo concludes.

About Realty Times TV and its Partners:
Realty Times TV is the latest venture from Realty Times, one of the most-trusted sources of real estate news in America.

STP and STC announce the release of its newly developed EHS audit protocol for New South Wales, Australia

Latest EHS Regulations Updates Assist Companies to Achieve EHS Compliance

VANCOUVER, BRITISH COLUMBIA, CANADA, July 29, 2021 / — STP ComplianceEHS (STP) and Specialty Technical Consultants (STC) announce the release of its recently updated EHS protocol for New South Wales, Australia. This audit protocol, which covers relevant national and State of New South Wales EHS requirements, was previously updated in March 2019. The regulatory date for the current release is March 2021.

Leading companies around the world use EHS audit protocols to understand the scope of their EHS regulatory obligations and rapidly collect, share, archive, and export audit findings in a cost-effective manner. EHS audit protocols are prepared by STC in partnership with STP and continue to focus on those national (plus, in some cases, regional or provincial) EHS requirements that have site-specific applications for manufacturing operations. As a leading EHS management consulting firm with a global network of experienced EHS teaming partners, STC has in-depth knowledge and technical expertise of local/regional EHS requirements.

STP and STC maintain leading-edge EHS audit protocols for more than 50 jurisdictions. The protocol documents are written in English and are available in MS Word, Adobe Acrobat and Excel formats, as well as through STP’s web-based portal or can be integrated into an existing company platform. Using the protocols’ custom templates and advanced functionality features, auditors can easily track audit findings and manage data over time to improve compliance, risk management and safety performance. In addition, STP’s formatting is compatible with leading risk management and sustainability platform providers.

Highlights of selected legislation covered in the newly developed protocol include:

The national Ozone Protection and Synthetic Greenhouse Gas Management Regulations 1995 were updated to incorporate new rules for charging refrigeration and air conditioning equipment which came into force on 1 January 2020 to support the hydrofluorocarbon (HFC) phase-down and reduce emissions of climate-damaging HFCs. These Rules ban the charging of refrigeration and air conditioning equipment with a higher global warming potential (GWP) refrigerant than the equipment was designed to use, with an exception for refrigeration or air conditioning equipment that is essential for health or public safety purposes where the design refrigerant is not available.

The national Product Emissions Standards Rules 2017 were updated to delay the commencement of the prohibition on supplying an emissions-controlled product that was due to commence on 1 July 2019 for 12 months, until 1 July 2020. The delay will allow an additional 12 months for suppliers and retailers to sell uncertified stock that was imported before the commencement of the import prohibition. Under the Product Emissions Standard Rules, certain propulsion marine engines and non-road engines are designated as “emissions-controlled products” which must be certified as meeting the Australian emissions standard, or a recognized foreign standard, in order to be imported or supplied in Australia.

The National Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Act 1989 and the Industrial Chemicals (Notification and Assessment) Regulations 1990 were repealed and have been replaced by a new regulatory scheme for industrial chemicals under the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 and the Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019.

The National Industrial Chemicals Act 2019 (assented to in March 2019) establishes a new regulatory scheme, the Australian Industrial Chemicals Introduction Scheme (AICIS), for the importation and manufacture (introduction) of industrial chemicals in Australia. The AICIS replaced the National Industrial Chemicals Notification and Assessment Scheme (NICNAS) on 1 July 2020. The AICIS establishes a new way of categorizing and introducing industrial chemicals that focuses the pre-introduction assessment on higher-risk chemical introductions and provides streamlined introduction pathways for lower-risk chemicals that are intended to reduce the regulatory burden for industry. It also focuses on post-introduction evaluation and monitoring to help maintain the protection of the health and safety of the public, workers, and the environment.

The National Industrial Chemicals (General) Rules 2019 (effective 1 July 2020) support the new industrial chemicals regulatory scheme established by the Industrial Chemicals Act 2019. These Rules set forth the technical and operational details and the requirements introducers must meet, including the requirement to categorize their chemicals that are not listed on the Australian Inventory of Industrial Chemicals.

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / — Johnstone Supply leads Thermostat Recycling Corp.’s Banish Mercury Off the Planet (BMOP) contest after two months of the competition. In second place is R.E. Michel Co., followed by Auer Steel & Heating Supply.

The continued support and participation by HARDI wholesalers demonstrate their commitment to a greener environment,” said Danielle Myers, operations and compliance manager, TRC. “Despite the extra burden HARDI members faced during the pandemic, many continued their high standards in recycling mercury-containing thermostats. We applaud their efforts.”

TRC reports 81.2 pounds of mercury, including more than 8,400 mercury-containing thermostats, have been recycled from 187 wholesalers through June in the BMOP contest, which began May 1 and ends Oct. 30.

The contest recognizes members of Heating Air-Conditioning Refrigeration Distributors International (HARDI) that collect the most mercury-containing thermostats. TRC publicly acknowledges the top three recyclers in various categories during HARDI’s annual conference. This year, the conference is in Palm Desert, California, from Dec. 4 to 7.

HARDI is the largest and most successful trade association representing the HVACR distributors in the United States.

“Despite emerging from the pandemic, 187 HARDI wholesalers have remained active and participated in our latest contest,” said Myers. “It shows the strength of our partnership and should serve as a reminder that there is still time for wholesalers to contribute because the contest doesn’t end until Oct. 30.”


About Thermostat Recycling Corporation
Thermostat Recycling Corporation, founded in 1998, is an industry-funded nonprofit corporation supported by 30 manufacturers that historically branded and sold mercury thermostats in the United States. TRC maintains a network of more than 3,600 collection sites nationwide and has recovered more than 2.7 million thermostats containing 12 tons of mercury since its inception. TRC assumes all costs to transport and properly dispose of mercury switch thermostats recovered from service. Learn more about TRC at

International Hemp Will Produce Over 500,000 Pounds of AOSCA Certified Industrial Hemp Seed with American Farmers

CEO, Derek Montgomery, in a Bialobrzeskie AOSCA certified seed production field.

International Hemp is producing more than half a million pounds of AOSCA certified seed on two grain and fiber Polish hemp varieties, Henola and Białobrzeskie.

It is our intent to bring the best hemp genetics from our European partners here to the United States and merge them with the highest-quality, North American AOSCA seed production standards.”

— Derek Montgomery

DENVER, CO, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / — International Hemp, a U.S.-based agricultural company, is currently in domestic production of over half a million pounds of Association of Official Seed Certifying Agencies (“AOSCA”) certified hemp seed of two monoecious grain and fiber varieties, Henola and Białobrzeskie. With its ability to domestically produce and import large volumes of hemp seed, International Hemp is positioned to be the largest producer and distributor of certified industrial hemp seed in the United States.

In the next several years, the demand for industrial hemp acreage in the United States is expected to increase dramatically as regional processing and end markets for hemp-based products develop. Previously, International Hemp worked with European seed producers to import OECD-certified seed. But shipping costs from Europe have increased dramatically during the pandemic. Increased shipping costs, coupled with the negative effects long transportation can have on seed quality and American farmers' preference for AOSCA certification, all helped expedite International Hemp’s switch to domestic AOSCA seed production.

“By establishing partnerships with American certified seed producers with many generations of seed production experience, it is our intent to bring the best genetics from our European partners here to the United States and merge them with the highest quality North American AOSCA seed production standards,” says Derek Montgomery, President and CEO of International Hemp. He adds, “In 2022, our domestic seed production combined with our remaining European certified seed imports will position us to have enough certified hemp seed in the United States to more than double the total United States industrial hemp acreage planted in 2020. By 2022, 100% of our current varieties will be domestically produced and AOSCA certified.”

As additional investments are made to develop hemp grain and fiber processing in North America, reliable, high-quality genetics and a stable seed supply will be critical. Mr. Montgomery adds, “Groups are investing millions in seed processing, and they cannot simply hope their seed gets here from Europe on time and in good condition. Future hemp grain and fiber processors will demand the quality and reliability that can only be obtained from domestically sourced AOSCA certified seed.”

While International Hemp has several new varieties in early-stage production, Bialobrezskie and Henola, which were bred in Poland by the Institute of Natural Fibres and Medicinal Plants for their fiber quality and high grain yields, are the varieties currently being produced this summer in the United States. Bialobrezskie and Henola first received certification in Europe under the OECD Seed Schemes, and were successfully trialed and certified in 2018 by the Colorado Seed Growers Association.

AOSCA certification helps guarantee variety purity and seed quality. AOSCA certification of a monoecious hemp variety imposes strict field isolation requirements as well as limits on the presence of male plants. During AOSCA’s two formal inspections, 20,000 plants are typically counted, and AOSCA allows only 1 out of every 100 (1%) to be all-male if the field is to be approved for certified seed, and 2 out of every 10,000 (.02%) to receive registered class certification.

The strict standards require the all-male and genetically different “off type” plants to be physically removed to prevent unwanted pollination. While this added labor increases costs, it also helps ensure consistent yields, uniform maturity, and THC compliance. “We want to let the market know that a reliable supply of domestically sourced AOSCA hemp seed is here and ready to be scaled upwards to meet growing demand. Consistent and reliable seed helps produce a reliable crop, which ultimately is what processors want to see,” says Mr. Montgomery.

In Europe and Canada, farmers are only allowed to plant certified hemp seed, but certified hemp seed is not a requirement under USDA's Interim Final Rule for Domestic Hemp Production, and states are allowed to set their own rules. This has allowed some farmers to take the risk of buying non-certified seed. Non-certified seed has no minimum quality requirements, can have low germination, poor vigor, and may be nothing more than another hemp farmer’s grain crop. The lack of quality control(s) can produce a poor stand, poor yields, and there is the risk of little to no genetic consistency in subsequent years.

Most importantly, non-certified hemp seed may test above the 0.3% THC threshold, or worse yet, above 1%, (the USDA threshold for imputing grower negligence). Non-THC compliant crops must be destroyed, which can cause legal troubles for the grower as well as the suspension of the grower’s license for future hemp production. As a resource for hemp growers, International Hemp has published a list of questions that can be used to vet hemp seed providers.

About International Hemp

International Hemp is a Colorado-based provider of certified industrial hemp seed. International Hemp has focused on building the domestic infrastructure for “industrial hemp,” i.e. fiber and grain.

International Hemp has allowed American farmers to grow thousands of acres of certified industrial hemp. In 2021, International Hemp sold certified hemp seed to farmers in more than 45 states, Canada, Latin America, as well as non-profit researchers and land grant universities.

Forward-Looking Statements

By 2022, all of International Hemp’s commercial inventory in the United States and Canada will be domestically produced and AOSCA certified. International Hemp intends to continue licensing and developing the highest quality, highest yielding hemp genetics in North America.
International Hemp is partnering with food and industrial manufacturers to spur continued expansion of hemp processing and is on a mission to plant 1,000,000 acres of industrial hemp by 2025.

International Hemp is always looking for strategic partnerships to help develop protein, fiber, and carbon credit markets.

Annette Bratcher On Mistakes Buyers Make When Building Custom Homes

Annette Bratcher, a Middle Tennessee-based Realtor and residential construction specialist

A Successful Experience Depends Upon Avoiding Pitfalls, Annette Bratcher Says

MURFREESBORO,, TN, USA, July 29, 2021 / — Building a custom home is a great way to gain a home that is uniquely suited to your lifestyle and preferences. Still, many first-time home builders make mistakes that challenge the project's success, says Annette Bratcher, a Middle Tennessee-based Realtor and residential construction specialist.

The first mistake is that they choose a builder based on price, says Bratcher. Builders include different services and quality of products in their prices, so understanding exactly what's included and what isn't is a key factor in understanding the lowest price. Even so, the builder with the lowest price may not necessarily be the best builder for the buyer's needs. Buyers should research builders by talking with other buyers who've worked with them and by touring other homes they've built, she says.

"Your dream home is a major investment financially and emotionally," she says. “ "Paying for peace of mind may well be worth it."

Another mistake some buyers make is to choose the lot too soon. Some sites have challenges, such as steep slopes that may not accommodate the design the buyer wants. Lots may have restrictions that challenge the buyer's vision, as well, she says. A similar mistake is to try to force a design on a lot that is unsuited for it.

Unless the builder is also an architect, buyers should engage an architect to work with the builder to ensure the design meets their needs and works with the site. The architect also can help the buyer plan for future space needs, Annette Bratcher says.

Finally, many buyers who build their custom homes fail to realize the importance of making major changes while the home is still in the planning stages. While builders can often accommodate a buyer who changes their mind about a key feature after construction begins, they do so only by increasing costs, she says.

About Annette Bratcher
Annette Bratcher is a new home construction specialist. When she moved to Middle Tennessee in 1995, she immediately became involved in the real estate/residential construction business first as a financial resource and then later as a licensed contractor and Realtor. She mentors other Realtors.
She also holds several other real estate certifications, including:

ABR – Accredited Buyers Representative
SRES- Seniors Real Estate Specialist

She is active in the community and has served as a director and president of the Chamber of Commerce, a director in the Kiwanis Club, a member of the Economic Development Board, and a founding director of the United Way. She also supports the Rutherford/Cannon County Child Advocacy Group and First Shot Basketball. She has a husband, daughter, son-in-law, two grandchildren, and an extended family in Western Kentucky.

Meridian Beam Gate at Santa Monica Pier

Meridian Beam Gate at Santa Monica Pier


With so many tourists and local people out and about enjoying themselves on the pier you have to be sure there will be no accidental or deliberate vehicle intrusions onto the pier.”

— Peter Whitford, Meridian CEO

SANTA MONICA, CA, US, July 29, 2021 / — One of America’s most visited tourist attractions, the Santa Monica Pier, now has a new and very effective “guardian” watching over it.

Meridian Rapid Defense Group has installed its highly regarded Archer Beam Gate at the entrance to the pier. The gate, placed right under the iconic “Yacht Harbor” entry sign, provides easy access for approved vehicles while at the same time protecting the thousands of pedestrians who visit every day.

Because there are restaurants and shops on the pier, delivery vehicles still need to gain access to the area and the beam gate can be used effectively to ensure that happens.

“With so many tourists and local people out and about enjoying themselves on the pier you have to be sure there will be no accidental or deliberate vehicle intrusions onto the pier. More and more these days this is something security specialists are warning about,” said Peter Whitford, CEO of Meridian Rapid Defense Group.

Within days of its installation the Archer gate proved its worth by stopping a driver in a car who was attempting to get onto the Santa Monica Pier. The net on the gate captured the vehicle, as it was designed to do, and the driver was arrested. The incident reinforced Meridian’s motto of making people, communities, and places safer.

“We looked closely at the location and with the co-operation of Santa Monica, their city emergency service personnel decided the gate, which incidentally needs no power connection and can be operated by just one person, would sit discreetly at the start of the pier. As you can imagine we are very satisfied with the results so far.” said Mr. Whitford.

Maria Rodriguez and her two children, from Sacramento, were visiting Santa Monica Pier for the first time on Thursday. She said, “If this gate keeps us safe while we’re here I’m all for it. I’ve seen those news reports where car drivers lost control and hit people. So, if this keeps cars away from us and everyone else here that’s a great idea.”

The Archer Beam Gate is used all over the U.S. and Canada and most recently on the popular Ocean Drive in Miami Beach. The closing of that street was so popular it has become a semi-permanent pedestrian plaza. The Archer Beam Gate is also the “go-to” product for sporting event organizers who need to keep everyone safe by separating cars and fans while still allowing for some restricted vehicle access.

The gate is easily opened and closed and can be put together in just 15 minutes making it the perfect solution for clients who need a quick and easy way to filter traffic from pedestrian areas.

For more information about the Meridian Archer Beam Gate or the Meridian Archer 1200 Barriers visit

The Archer Barriers are “SAFETY Act Certified” by the United States Department of Homeland Security (DHS) providing the ultimate standard in keeping people, communities and places safer.

Minimalistic Black and White Branding
“Less is more” is the perfect description for this branding aesthetic. Black and white never go out of style, even in the signage industry. The elegant displays in black and white are exactly what give the storefronts a classy and luxurious look. We can clearly see a contemporary influence in the almost monochromatic, black-dominant designs in the examples provided.

Architectural Outdoor Branding
The best way to make a statement outdoors is through distinguished architectural signage. According to Front Signs, displays that merge with their surroundings while highlighting the company name and logo are a popular and powerful branding tool. You can get 3D elements on a monument sign that replicates the building or present your logo as a free standing sculptural piece for a stunning effect.

Illuminated Branding Solutions
In 2021, illuminated signs like channel letters and light boxes are more sought-after than ever before. Being among the most popular types of indoor and outdoor advertising mediums, illuminated signs continue to be the most effective tool for maximizing brand awareness. Eco-friendly LED illuminated signs attract prospects and promote businesses with a 24/7 allure.

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology Raises Over $250 Million to Empower STEM Education

The Mission Driven Campaign for Rose-Hulman expanded student and academic

Rose-Hulman: Mussallem Union

Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology

The Mission Driven Campaign for Rose-Hulman has supported student scholarships, new educational spaces, faculty support, and global/diversity initiatives.

The Mission Driven Campaign for Rose-Hulman has transformed our campus and prepared us to better meet the challenges of being a top STEM college focused on undergraduate education.”

— Robert A. Coons, President, Rose-Hulman Inst. of Tech.

TERRE HAUTE, IN, UNITED STATES, July 29, 2021 / — Rose-Hulman Institute of Technology has successfully achieved a $250 million comprehensive fundraising campaign that has helped increase student scholarships, brought new learning spaces to campus, and solidified its position as a national leader in undergraduate science, technology, engineering, and mathematics (STEM) education.

The Mission Driven Campaign for Rose-Hulman has brought substantial support in the following areas:
• $127 million for student scholarships and financial aid.
• $81 million for the Fund for Rose-Hulman.
• $30 million for new spaces to expand networking and learning; and
• $12 million for faculty support, global and diversity initiatives.

The campaign raised $50 million over the past year alone and more than $100 million since 2018.

“The Mission Driven Campaign for Rose-Hulman has transformed our campus and prepared us to better meet the challenges of being a top STEM college focused on undergraduate education,” said Rose-Hulman President Robert A. Coons. “We’re grateful for the commitment by so many in support of providing our students with the world’s best undergraduate STEM education in an environment of individual attention and support.”

Coons noted that to remain at the forefront of STEM higher education, Rose-Hulman needed to recruit and retain leading-edge faculty and staff, attract academically strong students throughout the world from a wide range of socioeconomic and ethnic groups, modernize facilities and equipment, and stay ahead of technological change. Other key strategic goals were continuing to increase retention and expansion of hands-on experiences for students that are giving them an edge in the job market and graduate school applications.

Significantly increased student scholarships throughout the campaign helped drive enrollment among students, including those from diverse socioeconomic, ethnic, and cultural backgrounds. Recent examples include:
• Alumnus and Board of Trustees chair Niles Noblitt and his wife, Nancy, established the Noblitt Scholars program with a $10 million gift.
• Linda and Mike Mussallem, an alumnus and trustee, added a $4.1 million scholarship gift supporting students from northwest Indiana and the Chicagoland area.

Additional gifts supported the creation and expansion of key spaces and programs on campus.
• A $15 million lead gift from a donor helped pave the way to build a new $29 million, 70,000-square-foot academic building, opening for the 2021-22 school year;
• More than $16 million from Lilly Endowment, Inc. supporting several Rose-Hulman initiatives such as Ask Rose Homework Hotline, PRISM, ESCALATE, and Mindful Connections.
• A $10.5 million gift from Linda and Mike Mussallem paved the way for the $21 million expansion of the institute’s Mussallem Union, dedicated in May 2018.
• The 13,800-square-foot Richard J. and Shirley J. Kremer Innovation Center, opened during the 2018-19 school year, expanded opportunities for students to enhance their hands-on, collaborative educational experiences.

“These new workspaces, laboratories and classrooms provide our faculty with the tools to in turn provide our students with the skills desired by industry throughout the world and the nation’s leading graduate and doctorate programs,” said Jeffrey A. Harrison, president and chief executive officer of Citizens Energy Group in Indianapolis, who served as the campaign co-chair with Thomas Dinkel, president of Terre Haute-based Sycamore Engineering. Both are Rose-Hulman alumni and trustees.

Additionally, the proceeds from the campaign supported the installation of new synthetic turf, creating two multipurpose fields used for athletics, recreation and intramural activities. The auction of a McLaren P1 hypercar owned by alumnus Felda Hardymon brought in a world-record $2.39 million, which supported the endowment of the Alfred R. Schmidt Chair for Excellence in Teaching, reinforcing the development of transformative learning experiences in the classroom.

Steve Brady, vice president for institutional advancement, noted that the campaign received financial support from many groups, including alumni, friends, corporations, foundations, faculty, staff, and parents. This broad-based support helped Rose-Hulman surpass its ambitious fundraising goal, even within the challenges of the recent COVID-19 pandemic.

“Our supporters were driven to help us achieve our campaign goal,” Brady said. “Our alumni value their Rose-Hulman experiences and all of the elements that went into their educations, including our dedicated, caring and talented faculty and staff. They wanted to make sure the institute remained on the cutting edge and, most importantly, a leading force in undergraduate STEM education.”

Coons adds that the success of the Mission Driven Campaign is guiding Rose-Hulman toward its future. “Administrators, faculty and staff are already examining short-term and long-range strategic initiatives for the future. Some of those goals will be announced later this year.”

ASTA is OTC Pink Symbol for Astra Veda Corporation

Request to OTC Market Group

Astra Veda Corporation (OTCMKTS:ASTA)

Big News for Paranotek”

— Mick Davis – President

PRESCOTT, AZ, USA, July 29, 2021 / — ASTRA VEDA CORPORATION Chairman and CEO Mick Davis announced today that the Company provided notice to the OTC Markets Group that the required corporate action with FINRA has been completed and WorldFlix, Inc. is no longer recognized. Astra Veda Corporation is now the market recognized name of the company with a newly assigned ticker symbol ASTA.

Davis stated, "with this critical objective behind us, we reached out to the leadership at the OTC Markets Group to renew in earnest, our January 2021 application so we can file our financial disclosures before the 28 September deadline". The Company has also engaged a highly qualified law firm to provide the required review and Attorney Letter With Respect to Current Information.

The Company sent a draft copy of the required OTC Markets disclosures to the OTC Markets Group before their recommended deadline on 30 June 2021 as a precaution. The Company is taking measures to construct our financials to be worthy of the market's trust. We will meet the Rule 15c-211 amendments with updated OTC disclosures and codify our business processes, so future disclosures are Public Company Accounting Oversight Board (PCAOB) audit ready.

The PCAOB is a nonprofit corporation established by Congress to oversee the audits of public companies in order to protect investors and further the public interest in the preparation of informative, accurate, and independent audit reports and inspect registered firms' audits and quality control systems.

Now that the name and symbol change has been completed, each broker and trading platform must each directly request updates from the Depository Trust and Clearing Company (DTCC) who will in turn, request updated information from our stellar performing transfer agent. Then DTCC updates each broker's ledger. Only after these very detailed processes are completed, will open market share holders be able to see their ASTA holdings in their account. Depending on the broker, this process may take weeks. The Company has no influence or interaction on this process and understand shareholder levels of frustration.

On other matters, “Astra’s subsidiary Paranotek, has been hard at work over the past 2 years and anticipates putting out its own news releases within the next two weeks”, said Davis. “We are proud of the impressive accomplishments Finnish partner Lauri Tunnela has achieved. He has produced a robust platform that technically rivals large corporate platforms today and filed a patent application with the United State Patent and Trademark Office (USPTO) last week".

In other news, Astra Veda is exploring partnerships with a select group of Defense Contractors focused on the Defense Industry Base (DIB) and inside the Intelligence Community (IC). More information will be shared as details unfold.

The entire leadership team is excited for the future of Astra Veda Corporation, and we will update shareholders through traditional media outlets and OTC Markets platforms.

Note: The company does not communicate with anyone from the public on an individual basis. We will not participate in insider trading or other inappropriate communications behavior.

All timelines, substantive news and information will be delivered by way of the OTC Markets platform or other traditional news outlets. We will compile inquiries into common themes and address them during the next periodic public update.
