Non Profit Launches Business Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

We have to change the narrative. We need to take the politics out of our governance. We need to come together as a community if we are to be successful.”

— Steve Anderson

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Over the past year, SmALL businesses have felt helpless, hopeless, unsupported, and confused. Witnessing the pain and challenges felt and faced by honest, hardworking people in our communities, it became very clear we MUST take action. This sparked the inception of the organization called Social Distance Management (SDM).

Edward Henry Company (EHCO) has made the decision to give away all licensing rights and intellectual property of SDM, which includes Social Distance Advisory (SDA), Social Distance Compliance (SDC) systems, and research to SmALL Business is Essential (SBE).

SDM believes that all businesses need universal compliance measures to operate safely during a pandemic and other unprecedented times. By having access to these practical systems, SBE will have the resources it needs to develop the support for all businesses. ALL businesses are essential, and business continuity is the focus. Any opportunities managed from these systems will help all businesses secure and implement adequate steps to stay open, thrive, and have their voices heard.

The Journey of Social Distance Management

In March of 2020, EHCO started SDM with a mission to stand by businesses. Two months later, on May 11, 2020, with extensive research, collaboration and data collection, they released their first version of universal compliance standards.

Under SDM, sub-resources, including SDA and SDC systems, were established to display universal compliance guidelines and assess the threat levels in specific areas to protect the population. The idea to start SDM came from the utmost care about people and businesses, not from a political approach. Universal health measures and the life of our economy are not two isolated conversations. It is ONE conversation.

To contribute to the information gathered, in July of 2020, a Research Internship was formed to discover and outline details on various businesses in Canada and the United States. The outcome of the research included details which contributed to SDC, such as further development of safety protocols, requirements for operation, compliance measures, capacity limits, and PPE requirements. SDM used the data collection to create additional tools, such as self-assessment audits that provide a checklist for what businesses need to stay compliant and operate safely.

Taking its cue from other systems such as ISO, Homeland Security, The World Health Organization, and research from John Hopkins University, SDM developed its Advisory system. This system was developed with the intent to assist businesses and communities in preparing for crises and mitigating restrictions. “There needs to be accountability to the decisions that are being made that affect our small businesses,” said President of EHCO, Edward Henry.

The Advisory system narrows in on the WHO’s Pandemic Phases and the Homeland Security system and uses five levels of risk and threat: low, moderate, substantial, severe, and critical. The colors associated include green, blue, yellow, orange, and red. Each phase clearly defines which business practices, products, and services are considered essential and non-essential and the types of businesses permitted to open during each phase. The Advisory system is currently in the process of implementing data from John Hopkins University, along with data collected by other reputable models.

Despite the aforementioned systems, resources, and extensive research to support our findings, ambiguous guidelines still remain. Therefore, businesses are left without genuine reasons as to why they cannot safely reopen and recover.

A Multi-faceted Problem Requires Innovative Solutions

Stand By SmALL Businesses and Our Communities

SmALL Business is Essential

After spending some time in the development phase, SDM ventured out and sought support from government officials and local politicians. After COUNTLESS meetings and constantly being redirected elsewhere, it was time to take drastic action. Edward Henry states, “Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.” This year has been about a lot of the wrong things, and in the beginning, SDM was seen as a profit-making opportunity, and taking advantage of a terrible situation. The lack of change cannot continue. Coming together as a collective unit is essential.

For sustainable change to happen, SDM’s resources need to be placed in the right hands. They need to be placed with an organization that isn’t narrow minded, but bilateral with its thinking so sectors, such as health and business can come together. SBE is a not-for-profit association that operates based on three core pillars: pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and safe business practices. SBE aims to collectively arm small businesses with the support, protection, and resources needed to operate safely while envisioning economic recovery and stability through business unity.

This pandemic is not just a small business problem; it’s a world problem. The government’s attempt to segregate businesses into non-essential and essential classifications created ambiguity. This ambiguity initiated the thought that, not some, but ALL businesses are essential. As EHCO releases all of its SDM systems, traffic, assessment, and auditing models to SBE, a new leadership position begins. SBE’s goals encompass the severity of the issue at hand, which is why there is no better person for the job than Steve Anderson. As a Social Entrepreneur, Olympic Gold Medal Coach, and Community Champion, Anderson takes over as President of the not-for-profit association SBE. Edward Henry states, “My choice to recruit Steve Anderson was because of his character, coaching background, competitive nature to overcome challenges, and his experience with a multi-faceted range of individuals.” Speaking to Anderson’s character, he doesn’t make excuses. Steve is a good man, and SBE needs his character to bring everyone together.

Along with Anderson’s motivating character, he is the first African American to coach an Olympic team in indoor or beach volleyball and the first to win an Olympic Gold Medal in either practice. Anderson is highly committed to being the driving force behind SBE to support ALL businesses. He, along with the efforts of SBE, will pave the way towards a better normal.

Our current actions reflect our future results. If we don’t continue putting in effort and showing our care for our businesses, we will continue losing pieces of our community and, in turn, our economy. Small businesses have experienced unfair measures and restrictions, putting them at risk for permanent closure. Continuous lockdowns are not a solution. “This current pandemic has cost over $20 trillion because we were not prepared,” said Edward Henry. The definition of insanity is to perform the same actions and expect different results. “We will do this over again if we don’t start changing the way we do things,” he added. The focus needs to be on Social Distance Compliance and universal protocols to preserve business continuity. If we want an improved normal, we need to stand by SmALL businesses and our communities. There is no better time than now to help businesses transition from lockdowns and longer than expected restrictions.

Deep Pharma Intelligence Releases Analytical Report "Cell Therapies In Healthcare Landscape Overview 2021"

“Cell Therapies In Healthcare Landscape Overview 2021 (Stem Cells and CAR-Ts)”

“Cell Therapies In Healthcare Landscape Overview 2021 (Stem Cells and CAR-Ts)”

Deep Pharma Intelligence (DPI) is a leading UK-based strategic and investment intelligence agency focused on the emerging markets in the Pharmaceutical, Biotech, MedTech and Healthcare Tech industries”

— Deep Pharma Intelligence

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, May 31, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Deep Pharma Intelligence released a special 115-page analytical report Cell Therapies In Healthcare Landscape Overview 2021 (Stem Cells and CAR-Ts), which is the first comprehensive and systematic overview of cell therapies landscape by the company. This report is specifically focused on Stem Cell therapies and Chimeric Antigen Receptor T-cell (CAR-T) therapies, and it is the first edition in a series of reports covering the landscape of cell therapies and related technologies and products.

The main aim of this report is to profile an ecosystem of biotech companies and technology developers, applying advanced biology techniques, experimentation tools, and advanced data analytics technologies for creating state-of-the-art stem cell-based products and therapies, and for creating robust clinically efficient and personalized CAR-T therapies — two exciting and rapidly evolving areas of modern biotech.

Link to the report "Cell Therapies In Healthcare Landscape Overview 2021 (Stem Cells and CAR-Ts)" – www.deep-pharma.tech/cell-therapies.

This report highlights 400 biotech companies and vendors, 200 biotech investors, and 15 pharma corporations active in the areas of stem cells research and CAR-T therapies, as well as selected R&D collaborations, funding rounds, research trends, industry trends, selected case studies, and other actionable insights about the industry.

With more than 100.000 research publications and above 1000 clinical trials taking place globally, the area of cell therapies research (stem cell and CAR-T) is steadily expanding in terms of new knowledge and understanding of fundamental biological processes associated with production and application of stem cells, CAR-T technologies, and other cell therapies in general. The area is characterized by a steady flow of scientific breakthroughs with high translational potential, which opens up a landscape of opportunities for prospective investors.

However, notwithstanding of substantial amount of clinical data showing relative safety and efficacy of cell therapies, related to stem cells and CAR-T, the overall presence of commercially available medical products and services is still rather limited, which is reflective of the fact that the market is in early days of development — with substantial growth potential overall.

Up to now, only 5 CAR-T therapies has been approved by FDA, including Abecma by Bluebird Bio and Bristol Myers Squibb, Tecartus™ by Kite Pharma, and others, as well as 19 Stem Cell products — all being blood-forming stem cells (also known as hematopoietic progenitor cells) that are derived from umbilical cord blood. These products are approved for use in patients with disorders that affect the production of blood.

The market of cell therapies is currently a growing opportunity for the private and institutional investors, and we expect the acceleration of funding inflow into the segments of stem cells and CAR-T technologies in the upcoming 2-5 years. Especially interesting opportunities emerge when companies develop specialized R&D platforms, capable of producing results with a wide variety of products and therapeutics areas.

SmALL Business is Essential Launches Universal Pandemic Preparedness System

Press Conference June 1st, 2021, 11:00 am EST; the world needs pandemic preparedness, sustainability, and universal safe business practices.

Limited power is not an excuse for not doing the right thing.”

happening and provide people and families with protection in the event of flooding or storm surges.

this seawall company's headquarters.

Different Seawall Types:
– Erosion Control Seawall – This is one of the most common forms of seaways they do. The design keeps water on top while allowing waves through, which protects
against coastal flooding when combined with other flood control measures like
levees or dams
– Flood Protection Seawall – Same concept as an erosion wall but typically taller
(sometimes up to feet taller).
– Coastal Seawall – This type of seawall provides protection from coastal erosion and land loss. It is designed to protect against heavy wave action.

A good sturdy seawall will cost you more than a single layer of wall but it is worth every penny! Seawalls are an important part of your home and any good seawall company will tell you that.

Be very careful about who comes to work on the structure because if they don’t do their job correctly, there is no second chance to fix what went wrong.
That's why you should trust the experts at Seawall Construction of Ft. Lauderdale. Be sure to have them send someone out an accurate price quote, so you know exactly how much it costs in advance. So take care of yourself by calling this Seawall Company of Ft. Lauderdale. Have it done right by the best team you can find, instead of paying more for premature repairs later.

Seawalls are important for every property owner to invest in, but they're not cheap. Get quotes from different contractors and decide which one has the best deal on these necessary structures before you get started building your dream home or repairing damage done to an old house. Always protect your property by
investing in something worthwhile like an excellent seawall installation company. Protecting your home with our quality seawall is an investment that will pay off in
the long run.

In order to build seawall, a contractor can use a lot of different materials including sandbags made out of plastic bags, steel sheet piles that have been driven into
place by heavy machinery, reinforced concrete walls poured on site after excavating an area for its foundation and reinforcing it using metal rods, mesh
nets which can be installed as anti-wave breakers or sea cell revetments. It might be wise to have someone take a look at the conditions of your
current seawall so you know exactly what the current condition of it is, instead of waiting until something goes wrong with it later on. They handle seawall
inspections and repairs, so there'll be no surprises on the repair bill or if you choose to wait for a failure.

If your seawall is damaged or in need of repair and you don't have insurance coverage, or have insurance that will cover it, then they’re here to help!

They offer competitive prices on all work for home owners and business owners who are looking to save money while keeping their homes safe from coastal damage.

Seawalls are a necessary expense once your house has been built near water so make sure you call them before entertaining the other guys. People hire this company because they offer high quality services at affordable prices so their homes will be protected against severe weather events like hurricanes, floods and storms.

They also do emergency seawall construction. High winds and flooding can cause damage to a seawall, and it's important that you have protection for your home.
