It is important for STEM NOLA to intensify our STEM learning programs as much as possible to help fill in the gaps caused by disruptions during the school year. We are achieving that objective…”

— Dr. Calvin Mackie

NEW ORLEANS, LOUISIANA , UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 / — STEM NOLA, a non-profit committed to science, technology, engineering and math (STEM) education, is providing STEM learning to a wide range of K-12 students across the region this summer, helping children recoup some of the schooling lost when classes were interrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic.

While providing both in-person and virtual summer camps to students throughout Louisiana and the Gulf Coast, STEM NOLA also operated special programming through partnerships with the New Orleans Pelicans, Chevron and Jefferson Parish Schools.

“It is important for STEM NOLA to intensify our STEM learning programs as much as possible to help fill in the gaps caused by disruptions during the school year,” said Dr. Calvin Mackie, founder and president of STEM NOLA. “We are achieving that objective with innovative programing that continues our tradition of bringing STEM education into communities that need it most. Raising awareness of STEM can create pathways to quality jobs and careers for students in under-resourced communities.”

For instance, STEM NOLA partnered with the New Orleans Pelicans, Learn Fresh and Chevron Gulf of Mexico Business Unit to offer students a fun and unique STEM experience, "Scoring with STEM: Using the Game of Basketball to Learn STEM.”

STEM NOLA delivered basketball-themed STEM kits provided by Learn Fresh and NBA swag to 134 3rd through 8th graders across the region. Students learned about lung capacity and played NBA Math Hoops, a program helping students learn fundamental math skills through the game of basketball. Nationwide, 82 percent of eighth graders from low-income families are not proficient in math. Through NBA Math Hoops, students often develop an appreciation and love for math.

The highlight of the day for each student and facilitator was building their own miniature basketball arena complete with fans, lights and sensors that activated fan noise when a basket was made from the attached catapult. “My son had a great time today, thank you to all the sponsors and facilitators! I sat nearby and learned a few new things myself. We never would have gotten this experience in our small community if it weren't for virtual events like this one,” said one parent following the event.

“This is why digital access and STEM engagement are important,” said Dr. Mackie. “Thanks to sponsors, like AT&T and Entergy, we were able to make our virtual programming possible when COVID shut down in-person events. We are grateful to expand our partnerships with organizations like the New Orleans Pelicans, Chevron and the NBA. Collectively, we can work together to bring STEM education to a generation of children.”

STEM NOLA also partnered with Jefferson Parish Schools (JP Schools) to engage thousands of students in specialized STEM programming during the school district’s first ever Summer Bridge Program that is set to end this week.

STEM NOLA provided tools to offer STEM instruction to at least 3,200 students during the month-long Jefferson Summer Bridge and offered training for teachers, who learned how to better expose and inspire students in STEM. The goal was to tackle STEM issues and challenges facing students in Jefferson Parish communities and emphasize the technical skills needed in the 21st century to prepare them for quality jobs and careers in STEM-related fields.

During the STEM enrichment program, students participated in hands-on and technology-based STEM activities from June 8th until June 30th. In addition to the weekly themed STEM activities, students built their own boats, cars and rockets, while engaging in analysis, trials and discussion of the scientific and engineering theories applied.

“Our goal is to provide students with the learning they need to be successful. Due to school closures in March 2020 and pandemic-related learning disruptions, students may have experienced learning losses,” said JP Schools Superintendent James Gray. “This year, our teachers, support staff, and administrators have stepped up to meet our students where they are and provide quality teaching and learning. However, it was important that we continued to provide accelerated learning opportunities to students this summer.”

Thanks to sponsors, such as Entergy, Dr. Mackie created STEM NOLA in 2013 and brought STEM into New Orleans communities with hands-on programs at churches, schools and community centers. When COVID-19 struck, he adjusted and expanded virtual offerings so the learning would continue. In the last seven years, STEM NOLA has impacted 65,000 students, 17,000 families and 2,150 schools. With more corporations poised to sponsor initiatives, STEM NOLA programs are expanding. The non-profit is rapidly growing and will soon rebrand to STEM Global Action, with a formal announcement in July.

Fintel Provides Investors with Ownership Data to Identify Securities with Highest Levels of Institutional Accumulation logo logo

Fintel’s Ownership Explorer showcases companies attracting new institutional investment

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, June 30, 2021 / —, a provider of advanced research tools for data-driven investors, has developed an advanced quantitative modeling Ownership Explorer to find companies that are attracting the highest levels of new institutional investment.

“Institutional support is an important factor to consider when investing,” said Wilton Risenhoover, founder and CEO of Fintel. “Our Ownership Explorer analyzes changes to a security’s owners count and allocation in order to pinpoint those that have high levels of institutional accumulation. This helps retail investors identify potential profit opportunities.”

Institutional accumulation refers to securities being bought by professional and institutional investors such as hedge funds, mutual funds, and pensions. The buying and selling actions of professional and institutional investors can correlate to the stock’s price rising or falling. Taking note of the level of institutional investment helps retail investors make profitable decisions.

The Ownership Explorer features the Ownership Accumulation Score, which is the result of a proprietary model that uses a number of factors. This model includes the increase in the number of disclosed owners and the changes in average allocation across disclosed owners. The number ranges from 0 to 100, with higher numbers indicating a higher level of accumulation to its peers, and 50 being the average.

The Ownership Explorer leaderboard features the Owners Count, which is the total number of entities that have disclosed positions in the company; the Owners Count Percent Change, which is the percent change in this count during the last 90 days; the Average Allocation, which is the average portfolio allocation disclosed by all owners of the security; and the Allocation Change (%), which is the average percent change in allocation between in the last 90 days.

Securities with highest level of institutional accumulation as of 6/29:
* TNL – Travel + Leisure Co (99.94)
* IMCC – IM Cannabis Corp. (99.64)
* MAPS – WM Technology, Inc. Class A (99.41)
* JEPI – JPMorgan Equity Premium Income ETF (99.31)
* HIMS – Hims & Hers Health, Inc. (99.16)

The Ownership Score ranges from 0 to 100, with higher numbers indicating a higher level of accumulation relative to its peers.
In addition to the Ownership Explorer leaderboard, data-driven retail investors that subscribe to have access to comprehensive ownership data of US institutions, mutual funds, and ETFs targeting equities and bonds in mature, emerging, and frontier markets.

Ρωσικό αμφίβιο αεροσκάφος Be-200ChS θα σβήνει φυσικές πυρκαγιές στην Ελλάδα

Το ρωσικό αεροσκάφος Be-200ChS προσγειώθηκε σήμερα στην Ελλάδα. Θα λάβει μέρος στην κατάσβεση δασικών πυρκαγιών στο έδαφος της χώρας.

MOSCOW, RUSSIA, June 30, 2021 / — Το ρωσικό αεροσκάφος Be-200ChS προσγειώθηκε σήμερα στην Ελλάδα. Θα λάβει μέρος στην κατάσβεση δασικών πυρκαγιών στο έδαφος της χώρας.

Η αντίστοιχη σύμβαση μεταξύ του Υπουργείου Προστασίας του Πολίτη στην Ελλάδα, αρμόδιο για την διοργάνωση μέτρων καταπολέμησης των φυσικών πυρκαγιών, και της PJSC «Il» υπογράφηκε επίσημα στην Αθήνα.

Η σύμβαση προετοιμάστηκε με την υποστήριξη του Γραφείου Αντιπροσωπείας της State Corporation Rostec (Κρατικής Εταιρείας Rostec) στην Ελλάδα. Οι διαπραγματεύσεις μεταξύ της ρωσικής αντιπροσωπείας, με επικεφαλής τον κ. ΒΛΑΝΤΙΜΙΡ ΑΡΤΙΑΚΟΦ (Vladimir Artyakov), Πρώτο Αναπληρωτή Γενικό Διευθυντή της Κρατικής Εταιρείας Rostec, και τον κ. Νίκο Χαρδαλιά, Αναπληρωτή Υπουργό Προστασίας του Πολίτη στην Ελλάδα, τον Μάρτιο του τρέχοντος έτους ήταν αφετηρία.

«Οι δασικές πυρκαγιές αποτελούν ολοένα μεγαλύτερη απειλή για την ασφάλεια των ανθρώπων, ειδικά εάν η φυσική καταστροφή λαμβάνει χώρα σε δυσπρόσιτες περιοχές. Η αεροπορία έχει πολλές φορές επιδείξει υψηλή απόδοση και αποτελεσματικότητα στην εξάλειψη των συνεπειών των δασικών πυρκαγιών. Η εκπόνηση καινούργιων μεθόδων πρόσληψης και απόρριψης νερού σε πηγές πυρκαγιάς σε ακραία υδρομετεωρολογικά φαινόμενα προβλέπεται κατά τη διάρκεια των πτήσεων. Οι Έλληνες εταίροι συμμερίζονται την πεποίθησή μας στις δυνατότητες της Ρωσικής μηχανής και βασίζονται στην αποτελεσματική υποστήριξη στην καταπολέμηση της φωτιάς από τον αέρα», λέει ο ΒΛΑΝΤΙΜΙΡ ΑΡΤΙΑΚΟΦ (Vladimir Artyakov), Πρώτος Αναπληρωτής Γενικός Διευθυντής της Κρατικής Εταιρείας Rostec.

Η Ρωσία λαμβάνει τακτικά αιτήματα από ξένες χώρες για βοήθεια στην εξάλειψη των δασικών πυρκαγιών. Το 2020 εφαρμόστηκε για πρώτη φορά σύμβαση παροχής υπηρεσιών πυρόσβεσης με ξένο πελάτη. Το ρωσικό αμφίβιο αεροσκάφος Be-200ChS έλαβε θετικές αξιολογήσεις. Αυτό συνέβαλε στην προώθησή του στις ξένες αγορές, τόσο με τη μορφή παροχής υπηρεσιών όσο και με σκοπό τις άμεσες παραδόσεις.

Τα μοναδικά αμφίβια αεροσκάφη Be-200ChS παράγονται από την TANTK named after G.M. Beriev PJSC (μέρος της United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) PJSC της Κρατικής Εταιρείας Rostec). Τα αεροσκάφη έχουν αποδείξει την αποτελεσματικότητά τους στην καταπολέμηση πυρκαγιών στο έδαφος της Ρωσίας.

Το Be-200ChS είναι το μοναδικό αεριωθούμενο αμφίβιο αεροσκάφος στον κόσμο. Αυτό δίνει αναμφισβήτητα πλεονεκτήματα στην ταχύτητα κατά την κατάσβεση των πυρκαγιών. Το Be-200ChS μπορεί να πάρει μέχρι και 12 τόνους νερού. Το αεροσκάφος έχει καλή απόδοση όσον αφορά τον αριθμό των απορρίψεων νερού ανά ώρα. Το αεροσκάφος είναι σε θέση να ρίξει έως και 270 τόνους νερού στο χώρο πυρκαγιάς για έναν ανεφοδιασμό.

TANTK named after G.M. Beriev PJSC είναι κορυφαίος ρώσος σχεδιαστής και κατασκευαστής των αμφιβίων αεροσκαφών. Από το 2016, η επιχείρηση στο Ταγκανρόγκ παράγει αεροσκάφη σειράς Be-200ChS προς το συμφέρον ρωσικών και ξένων πελατών. Το αμφίβιο αεροσκάφος πολλαπλών ρόλων Be-200ChS έχει σχεδιαστεί για την κατάσβεση δασικών πυρκαγιών, την παροχή βοήθειας έκτακτης ανάγκης σε περιοχές καταστροφών έκτακτης ανάγκης, την έρευνα και τη διάσωση στο νερό, την υγειονομική και εμπορευματική μεταφορά, καθώς και την παρακολούθηση του περιβάλλοντος.

Η United Aircraft Corporation (UAC PJSC, μέρος της Κρατικής Εταιρείας Rostec) ιδρύθηκε το 2006 για την ενοποίηση των περιουσιακών στοιχείων των μεγαλύτερων αεροπορικών εταιρειών της Ρωσίας. Οι επιχειρήσεις, οι οποίες ανήκουν στην εταιρεία, παράγουν αεροσκάφη τέτοιων εμπορικών σημάτων παγκοσμίου φήμης όπως «Su», «MiG», «Il», «Tu», «Yak», «Beriev», καθώς και καινούργια – «Superjet 100» και «MC-21». Οι επιχειρήσεις της UAC PJSC εκτελούν τον πλήρη κύκλο εργασιών από το σχεδιασμό έως την εξυπηρέτηση μετά την πώληση και την ανακύκλωση του εξοπλισμού αεροσκαφών. Ο κ. ΓΙΟΥΡΙ ΜΠΟΡΙΣΟΒΙΤΣ ΣΛΙΟΥΣΑΡ (Yuriy Borisovich Slyusar), Αντιπρόεδρος της OOOR Soyuz Mashinostroitelei Rossii (SoyuzMash Rossii), είναι ο Γενικός Διευθυντής της United Aircraft Corporation (UAC) PJSC.

Community Air Mobility Initiative logo

The Community Air Policy Initiative continues to emerge as the preeminent voice educating and empowering state & local decision makers in Advanced Air Mobility

SEATTLE, WA, USA, June 30, 2021 / — The Community Air Mobility Initiative (CAMI) celebrated the conclusion of its second Urban Air Policy Collaborative (UAPC) Cohort in June after nine deep-dive educational sessions spanning five months. Topics covered included fundamentals of Advanced Air Mobility (AAM), including both regional and urban air mobility (RAM / UAM), eVTOL aircraft information, social equity considerations, integration of AAM with existing transportation, community and environmental impacts, and planning for AAM.

Fred Judson, UAS Director at the Ohio UAS Center, participated in the most recent cohort and had the following to say about their experience: “The Ohio UAS Center has gained practical and insightful information as being part of the CAMI [UAPC] Cohort for the benefits and challenges in building and enhancing a true three-dimensional transportation system called advanced air mobility. We look forward to continued collaborative efforts with CAMI and supporting DriveOhio’s FlyOhio AAM incentives through NASA’s AAM Community Planning and Integration Annex in support of the NASA AAM National Campaign.”

The next UAPC cohort will convene in September 2021. Applications from jurisdictions that are interested in participating are encouraged to apply through August 15, 2021 by emailing UAPC Cohorts are open to public agencies that are interested in advanced air mobility. Past cohorts have included staff from departments of transportation, aviation divisions, cities, counties, tribes, states, airports, and transit authorities. More details on admission and the curriculum are available at

In addition to congratulating the latest UAPC cohort graduates, CAMI would like to welcome its newest member, NUAIR. Tim Lawton, Director of Marketing and Public Relations for NUAIR stated: “NUAIR is actively involved with both the FAA and NASA on meaningful projects to shape future aviation, including the development of high-density vertiport operations, as part of NASA’s Advanced Air Mobility initiative. We joined CAMI to help bridge the gap between federal and local AAM initiatives, share our expertise in advanced unmanned aircraft operations and educate the general public on the latest AAM advancements.”

CAMI also welcomes its newest Expert Contributor: Chris Sequeira, Founder and Principal, CJSC LLC, has helped create and refine some of the most important environmental policies, guidance, and analysis tools in United States Aviation. During his time at the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), Chris developed a number of key community engagement and environmental impact tools and subsequently has gained extensive experience providing environmental analysis and community engagement services to airports of all sizes, including major hub airports. CAMI welcomes Chris, his expertise, and his passion for environmental justice in AAM integration to the team.

Also welcomed to the CAMI team are Alex Hall and Audrey Covert. Alex is a long time CAMI Expert Contributor with extensive AAM operational experience; she will be expanding her level of involvement with the CAMI team, working to build new content and expand member benefits. Audrey is a PhD student in Dublin, Ireland, and has years of experience in event organization, communications, and organizational administration. Audrey is supporting the CAMI team with a variety of initiatives.

CAMI Co-Founders Executive Director Yolanka Wulff, and Director of Industry and Strategy, Anna Mracek Dietrich, are excited to see the organization emerge as the preeminent voice educating and empowering state and local decision makers. “Well-informed, thoughtful plans on how to integrate AAM into our existing transportation landscapes will go a long way to ensuring that this new industry has the maximum possible benefit for the maximum number of people,” said Yolanka, “We’re excited to see this message being so well-received by a growing group of individuals, organizations, and jurisdictions.”

Optima’s Hard Error, Soft Error and Statistical Analysis Solutions are fully certified to TCL3 by TUV NORD for immediate deployment in ISO 26262 ASIL-D projects

Achieving full certification of the Optima Safety Platform is a major milestone for the company and our end users.”

— Sesha Sai Kumar C.V.

NAZARETH, ISRAEL, June 30, 2021 / — Optima Design Automation, a leader in next generation functional safety and IC-security verification, today announced that the internationally-recognized testing organization TÜV NORD has fully certified its entire functional safety platform for use in ISO 26262 semiconductor verification projects.

Following an extensive evaluation, the Optima-SA™, Optima-HE™, Optima-SE™, which make up the Optima Safety Platform, have been certified to the highest tool qualification level of the ISO 26262 standard. This enables the use of the Optima Safety Platform within the development of automotive safety-critical applications with an integrity level up to ASIL-D.

“Achieving full certification of the Optima Safety Platform is a major milestone for the company and our end users,” noted Sesha Sai Kumar C.V., Optima’s Director of Application Engineering. “Our customers are already seeing the benefits of order-of-magnitude accelerated fault analysis and this TCL3 certification, which demonstrates the rigorous quality of our solutions, allows them to deploy the tools easily to prove their most fault sensitive designs.”

The Optima Safety Platform makes use of the company’s revolutionary Fault Injection Engine (FIE) technology to dramatically accelerate the functional safety analysis required for all automotive and other safety critical semiconductor designs over more traditional methods and tools. The platform allows for rapid safety statistical analysis, and the full fault analysis of both permanent and transient fault types across a broad range of designs. Recently, a complete transient fault analysis of a multi-million gate design with 24 million fault-simulations was performed with the Optima Safety Platform in 12 hours, on a single machine, a dramatic improvement over previous methods.

“The ISO 26262 assessment and certification is the definitive credential for functional safety solutions,” said Hermann Kränzle, Functional Safety and Security, TÜV NORD. “Software tools, such as Optima’s Safety Platform, are increasingly responsible for essential tasks within the safety development process in the semiconductor and automotive sectors. This increases the criticality and the influence on the development results and creates the need for a systematic assessment of tools.”

This certification allows Optima’s customers to use the Optima Safety Platform on automotive ISO 26262 ASIL-D designs without the need to complete additional safety qualification measures themselves, thereby decreasing the time taken to achieve ISO 26262 certification for their products. In addition to the product certification, members of Optima’s applications and engineering teams have been certified as experts in semiconductor automotive functional safety.

“As part of our partnership with TÜV NORD we have established a state-of-the-art development process, which optimizes the quality of our products on a continuous basis,” added Ayman Mouallem, the RnD manager for Optima Design Automation. “Our customers can have full confidence in the integrity and durability of the Optima Safety Platform in their development flows.”


The Optima Safety Platform, including the fully certified Optima-SA, Optima-HE and Optima-SE are available today. Pricing is available on request.

Ethanol-free gas emerges as PurFuels, a multi-use gasoline benefitting consumers and marine industry

Houston-based performance fuels distributor Hyperfuels announces its newest product to market, PurFuels, commonly referred to as Isobutanol, to the US market. PurFuels is made with Isobutanol, replacing ethanol in the fuel, has the following advantages:
• Low vapor pressure eliminates “vapor-lock” and hard start conditions
• Isobutanol has more energy or btu’s than ethanol so power is noticeably increased
• Marine Gas can be used as a storage fuel as it is not prone to breakdown over time
• Marine Gas does not mix with water and is not “hygroscopic” like ethanol (means it does not attract moisture into the fuel)
• Marine gas can be purchased in regular, midgrade and premium octane.
• Marine Gas is available in gallons, pails, drums, totes and bulk.

Ideal markets to utilize this EPA Reformulated Gasoline (RG) fuel source includes:
• water rescue
• fire & crash rescue
• marinas: consumer boaters/jet ski users
• consumer small engines user
• winter equipment (snowmobiles)

Success with past municipal clients such as the East-coast based Montgomery County Crash Rescue municipality in Rockville, Maryland, who was having issues with their boats not starting in the winter due to gas freezing in tanks, identified a critical market: municipalities. Hyperfuels has secured government contracting eligibility, with help from the University of Houston Procurement Technical Assistance Center, to pursue additional municipality contracts.

Per Marine Retailers Association of the Americas, consumers also reap the benefits of PurFuels. As boat owners, marinas head into summer boating season they need to know that studies conclude that ethanol negatively impacts fuel filters, carburetors and more. In addition, ethanol is hygroscopic, which means it attracts water. When water from condensation forms in a boat’s fuel tank the ethanol attracts and absorbs the condensation, causing engine power issues from water contamination and fuel phase separation.

The timeliness of Hyperfuels introduction of PurFuels with Isobutanol comes as the marine industry focuses on addressing the congressionally-mandated Renewable Fuel Standard (RFS) requiring 36 billion gallons of renewable fuel to be blended into the gasoline supply by 2022.

Hyperfuels Marine Gas can be purchased:
• Amazon
• order online at, pickup at Hyperfuels in Houston, TX
• call 281-447-7200 to arrange delivery within United States
• wholesale bulk product (6,000-30,000 gallons) via tank wagons, trailers and railcars, to fit a scale of economy that helps small-medium sized businesses.

Additional tools helpful for understanding more about ethanol free gas include: for a list of where to find ethanol free gas in the United States
• Clean Cities, an initiative of the U.S. Department of Energy designed to reduce petroleum consumption in the transportation sector by advancing the use of alternative fuel vehicles, idle reduction technologies, hybrid electric vehicles, fuel blends, and fuel economy.
• Trade Only Today, daily news for marine trade industry professionals
• National Marine Manufacturers Association-videos, testimonials, research study conclusions and how biofuels are made
