Voip-Pal.com Inc. (OTCQB:VPLM)

We need to accept the fact that the coronavirus is not going to disappear the way MERS and SARS did. COVID-19 is a completely different animal and it will be with us for years.”

— Emil Malak

LONDON, ENGLAND, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — CEOCFO Magazine, an independent investment publication that highlights important technologies and companies, today announced it has published an op-ed (https://www.ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped092220.html) by Voip-Pal CEO Emil Malak. Voip-Pal.com Inc., Voip-Pal (OTCQB: VPLM), a Bellevue, Washington based company is an inventor and pioneer of the switching technology now being used by many of the world's largest telecommunication and social networking companies, without which they could not connect Landline phone calls to Internet phone calls. Mr. Malak has other business ventures and is well versed in global politics and culture.

In this most recent article Mr. Malak urges businesses to think “outside the box” and come up with solutions to keep the economy open. Malak wrote, “Businesses can provide their own solutions, by thinking outside the box and leaving cumbersome government bureaucracy behind. Business owners need to take matters into their own hands while abiding by the law. I have proposed a way to accomplish widespread rapid testing by placing converted ambulances as mobile testing centers on every corner. https://ceocfointerviews.com/emilmalakoped090220.html

Since the start of the pandemic, Emil Malak has advocated for widespread rapid testing as the way to keep the economy open and allow people to freely go about their business. Adding to his previous proposal of converting ambulances into mobile testing units, Mr. Malak has a new proposal for rapid result COVID-19 testing booths. Malak suggests, “Rapid results self-testing machine booths can be placed in business establishments and public buildings so people can regularly test themselves for the virus. These booths would be equipped with testing machines that deliver instant results to the person’s mobile phone within 2 to 5 minutes.” He continues, “Additionally, rapid results self-testing machine booths can be placed in business establishments and public buildings so people can regularly test themselves for the virus. These booths would be equipped with testing machines that deliver instant results to the person’s mobile phone within 2 to 5 minutes.”

Mr. Malak also discusses the recent rise in Coronavirus cases throughout Europe, saying, “On September 17th, the World Health Organization (WHO) issued a warning about the recent spike in coronavirus cases across Europe, calling the new surge in cases “alarming.” They labeled it as a "very serious situation" unfolding across the continent. In recent days, Europe has experienced the biggest rise in daily coronavirus cases since the virus began. France, Spain, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy, and Belgium are seeing record numbers of new cases. Even Israel is now imposing a second lockdown after seeing 4000 new cases in a single day last week. French President Macron has also raised the possibilities of forcing another nationwide lockdown. German Chancellor Angela Merkel has said the coronavirus pandemic is likely to worsen in coming months. Enforcing a draconian style lockdown is not as easy to do in western democracy as it is in autocratic China. We need to accept the fact that the coronavirus is not going to disappear the way MERS and SARS did. COVID-19 is a completely different animal and it will be with us for years.”
https://www.wral.com/who-warns-of-very-serious-situation-in-europe-with-alarming-rates-of-virus-transmission/19291033/

Malak also pointed out how lockdowns have failed and have society. “Lockdowns have proven to be mostly futile as evidenced by what is taking place in Europe right now. They are going back to the same numbers they had at the beginning of the pandemic. People’s lives cannot be put on hold any longer, especially knowing the virus will be back. The economy must keep moving.”

“This recognition underscores the value our firm puts on creating what we believe to be the best possible retirement solutions for our trusted clients around the nation,” said Michael Lee, CEO of FinDec. “In the more than 30 years our company has been operating, we’ve put our clients and their future first.

TVM Update: Pudendal/Ilioinguinal/Obturator Neuralgia = Immeasurable Injury

Ben Martin

Ben Martin

Pharmaceutical injury attorney, Ben Martin, comments on need for monetary justice against manufacturers of mesh slings/devices that cause neurological injuries.

I don’t mind saying it. I can’t believe these devices were put on the market in the first place, much less that they are still on it.”

— Ben Martin, Esq.

SANTA BARBARA, CA, UNITED STATES, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Ben Martin, Esq. of Martin Baughman, national pharmaceutical injury attorney comments on the issues as it relates to monitory demands to defense manufacturers for the neurological injured clients that he represents from the vaginal mesh debacle.

“Our criteria for representation is generally the existence of specific neurological pain syndromes caused by transobturator slings, retropubic slings, and the devices used previously for pelvic organ prolapse. We intend to try these cases as the seriously injured and disabled women we represent with chronic pain syndromes knowingly caused by these manufacturers deserve compensation. I don’t mind saying it. I can’t believe these devices were put on the market in the first place, much less that they are still on it. The medical and scientific evidence is clear that transobturator slings cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia.

There is no amount of money that will make our clients whole. They simply want to get better as they deal with miserable pain. We are with them, and try our best to understand what they are going through though we know that we can never truly understand it.”

The Vigna Law Group targets the below transobturator (TOT) slings and mini-slings that cause pudendal and obturator neuralgia:

Ethicon: TVT-O, Abbrevo
Boston Scientific: Obtryx, Solyx
Coloplast: Aris, Altis

The Vigna Law Group targets the below retropubic slings that cause ilioinguinal neuralgia and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome:

Boston Scientific: Advantage Fit
Ethicon: TVT, TVT Exact
Coloplast: Supris

Dr. Vigna is a California and Washington DC lawyer who focuses on catastrophic neurological injuries caused by transvaginal mesh devices including pudendal neuralgia, obturator neuralgia, ilioinguinal neuralgia, and Complex Regional Pain Syndrome.

AARDY, the nation’s fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace has launched its Medicare Original & Medicare Advantage comparison program.

At AARDY Insurance, we hope that our new guides, comparison system, and agent support help customers gain greater insight into these two competing Medicare programs.””

— Jonathan Breeze

MIAMI, FL, USA, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — AARDY, the nation’s fastest Medicare Insurance Marketplace has launched its Medicare Original & Medicare Advantage comparison program.

AARDY Insurance CEO Jonathan Breeze commented:
“More and more Americans are considering whether Original Medicare is a good fit for them, given the alternative option of a Medicare Advantage plan.

There is a significant challenge for seniors in trying to understand the strengths and weaknesses of Original Medicare vs. Medicare Advantage.

Most of us are bombarded with advertising that talks about the benefits of a Medicare Supplement Plan, which is only valid for folks using Original Medicare.

More often than not, it seems, the very next advert will talk about Medicare Advantage, which is the alternative to Original Medicare.

At AARDY Insurance, we hope that our new guides, comparison system, and agent support help customers gain greater insight into these two competing programs.”

Which is Better: Original Medicare or Medicare Advantage?

What works for one person is not necessarily appropriate for another.

Both Original Medicare and Medicare Advantage provide comprehensive medical insurance with out-of-pocket costs like deductibles and copays.

Medicare Advantage’s out-of-pocket maximum is $6,700, and some prefer the security knowing how much they will have to pay. Original Medicare has no maximum, so customers pay 20% coinsurance forever – an unlimited out-of-pocket cost. This can be solved with a Medicare Supplement.

Since Original Medicare has no networks, it is usually better for people who travel around the US, because they can see any provider. Medicare Advantage often has minimal coverage outside a customer’s residential area – this should always be checked.

However, Medicare Advantage is much simpler and easy-to-use than Original Medicare. Customer have one monthly premium for everything. With Original Medicare, customers must pay separate premiums for Part B, Part D, and whichever Medicare supplement they have.

AARDY Insurance donates 10% of annual profits each and every year to support AARDY Kids of Heroes™ charity partners. Through 2020, AARDY is supporting Special Operations Warrior Foundation, a truly inspirational charity.

Amplify Intelligence, leaders in SME cyber security services have partnered with Gallagher, helping to detect threats and manage cyber risk.

'We’re starting to see criminals move away from attacking larger organisations that present more complex defence mechanisms and instead target SMEs…'”

— QBE Cyber and Technology Specialist Ben Richardson

MELBOURNE, VIC, AUSTRALIA, September 25, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Recognising the value of the partnership between Amplify Intelligence and Gallagher to measure cyber risks derived from critical datasets, AustCyber awarded funding to this project as part of their $15 million Projects Fund, a three-year initiative designed to help the Australian cyber security industry grow and take ideas globally.

Amplify Intelligence’s partnership with Gallagher to improve cyber solutions for the insurance industry will enable them to provide a limited number of eligible clients with access to this Australian technology.

Founded in 2017, Amplify Intelligence Ltd has taken the cyber risk world by storm with the introduction of its cyber safety service.
Its amazing brAIn-box device observes and provides:

> Network Security Monitoring
> Vulnerability Scanning
> Global Threat Intelligence
> AI

It also brings security awareness, phishing simulations and recommends security policies to business owners.

Amplify Intelligence bundles it all together. https://www.amplifyintelligence.com

Simplifying the complex world of cyber security and letting businesses focus on their customers.

Globally a cyber attack is launched every 39 seconds, cyber-criminals are continually seeking new ways into your system. Being reliant only on firewalls and antivirus protection is no longer enough. Malware is constantly evolving and can now detect exposed business computers and infect them without a human being involved.

Once infected, it can operate in a manner undetectable to security such as Anti Virus.

Amplify Intelligence provides small to medium-sized businesses a bank-grade cyber security multi-tool. Cyber criminals are the biggest innovators in the cyber security game. Cyber scoring or web scans are useful only for the business’s external security, but fail to protect inside.

They often provide a false sense of security with such a narrow view of your risk exposure. Although the checks can identify some of the risks present in your website, and its configuration of your web domain.

With attacks quickly evolving, these are no longer able to protect you.

It may give you a long, confusing list of changes without any prioritisation to ensure you get the best bang for your time.

The brAIn-box device, however, looks for suspicious variations in network behaviour and raises the flag if it notices something to be worried about. Unlike anti-virus or endpoint security, it cannot be tampered with by cyber criminals.

Amplify Intelligence use AI to analyse your network behaviour combined with threat intelligence and vulnerability information creating a tailored prioritised list easy to follow actionable steps to make you safe.
A strong cyber security system has multiple layers of protection that spread across the entire organisation; it’s computers, devices, networks and programs.

Amplify Intelligence partnered with Gallagher, brings the next level of risk mitigation and cyber insurance cover to their clients.

“We provide bank-grade cyber security service and Gallagher brings cyber insurance into the mix. Until now, there hasn’t been a comprehensive risk management solution for businesses.” Paul Byrne – Founder and CEO of Amplify Intelligence.

By itself, cyber security can't guarantee the protection of your organisation or information from cyber-criminals. Cyber insurance can keep your business on stable financial footing should a significant security event occur. Gallagher provides cyber insurance solutions tailored to your organisation and its unique risk profile. Combining these two strategies means you get the best of both worlds,

Currently, cybercrime will cost the business world over USD $6 trillion annually by 2021, up from USD $3 trillion in 2015. The global Cyber Insurance market size in 2020 was USD 5.3 Billion, showing that businesses are significantly under-insuring this risk.

> Ransomware Was the Top Cyber Insurance Claim in Q1 2020
> Ransomware retakes the lead (from business email compromise) as the top cyber insurance claim the first half of the year
> Analysts observed a 47% increase in the severity of ransomware attacks, on top of a 100% increase from 2019 to Q1 2020
> Ransomware (41%), funds transfer loss (27%), and business email compromise incidents (19%) were the most frequent types of loss

Reduce your risk, maintain a connected and online organisation by contacting either Amplify Intelligence or Gallagher.

Grandeur Peak Global Contrarian Fund Well Positioned at 1-year Mark

Mark Madsen, Portfolio Manager

Mark Madsen, Portfolio Manager

A value approach to global investing has been out of favor for quite a while, resulting in our current ability to purchase quality companies at very healthy prices.”

— Mark Madsen, Portfolio Manager

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, USA, September 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Last week, the Grandeur Peak Global Contrarian Fund (GPGCX) passed the one-year mark. Robert Gardiner, Chairman and Guardian Portfolio Manager of Global Contrarian explains “In a nutshell, it is a Fund that is taking the opposite approach from ETF index-tracking products that skew toward larger-cap companies. Global Contrarian is searching for underappreciated micro- and small-cap companies across the globe. After managing two value funds at my prior firm, it feels great to now have this strategy firing on all cylinders here at Grandeur Peak. We waited eight years to launch Global Contrarian, the timing feels right to us. While much has changed over the last year, we believe the pandemic is giving us significant contrarian opportunities for long-term investors looking beyond the next 12 months.”

We do not attempt to time the markets, but are driven by our bottom-up, fundamental approach. We think having a meaningful allocation to Global Value can be a good strategy in any market, and especially now.

We’ve built a concentrated portfolio of what we believe to be quality companies, at attractive valuations. Our Investment Types in this fund include:
• Core Contrarian – quality companies in out-of-favor industries or geographies
• Fallen Angels – ¬growth companies that hit a “bump in the road”
• Undiscovered Gems – small, high quality companies with plenty of headroom
• High Yield – income oriented, lower earnings growth
• Sum of the Parts – valuing companies by adding standalone value of each business unit if sold or acquired

Mark Madsen, Portfolio Manager for Global Contrarian states, “A value approach to global investing has been out of favor for quite a while, resulting in our current ability to purchase quality companies at very healthy prices. We believe this strategy is a solid place to hide out in an expensive market. We’re highly optimistic that our patient approach will yield attractive returns for our clients.”

Click to see the strong relative performance of the Global Contrarian Fund over its first year.

About Grandeur Peak Global Advisors:
Grandeur Peak Global Advisors is comprised of a highly seasoned and collaborative research team taking a bottom-up approach to investing using disciplined global screening, rigorous company due diligence, and close attention to valuation to find what we believe to be the best investment opportunities around the world.

ONE Insurance Selects Hyperscience to Boost Digital Applications Processing Capabilities

Customer Win Reflects Growing Demand for Hyperscience Platform Across EMEA

NEW YORK, NY, USA, September 24, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Hyperscience, the automation company, today announced that ONE Insurance, the first digital full-service insurance provider in Europe, has selected the Hyperscience Platform for its advanced Intelligent Document Processing [IDP] capabilities. With the Hyperscience Platform, ONE Insurance can reduce manual keying and validation, improve data quality, and streamline application processing across their motor, home (personal contents) and personal liability lines of insurance.

“We are committed to remaining at the forefront of digitally-driven insurance, and we’re redefining the customer and broker experience,” said Philip Klossner, Chief Operating Officer, ONE Insurance. “Hyperscience will be instrumental in helping us achieve fast and efficient applications processing and underwriting, automating critical tasks with high levels of accuracy, so that we can continue serving our growing customer base and expand our network and triple-digit growth into the broader European market.”

The Hyperscience Platform automates data capture, classification and extraction, turning diverse data formats and document types — including low-resolution images, electronically generated PDFs and messy handwritten forms — into machine-readable data that can be used for faster, more reliable downstream processing, analysis and decision-making. This reduces the time, cost and errors of manually keying data into various portals and frees up broker and employee resources to focus on customer service and other revenue-generating activities that drive business forward.

“We’re delighted to support ONE Insurance’s commitment to end-to-end digital processing and their exciting growth trajectory,” said Charlie Newark-French, Chief Operating Officer, Hyperscience. “Using the Hyperscience Platform, ONE Insurance can more efficiently – and accurately – process new applications and scale to accommodate business growth. We’re seeing increased momentum for our technology in the UK and EMEA, as well as across the U.S., as companies recognize the critical competitive advantage that our automation brings.”

Hyperscience uses cutting-edge machine learning (ML) technology to overcome the inaccuracies and inefficiencies of traditional manual and rule-based legacy technologies. The lightweight platform deploys on-premise and learns from an organization’s data, behind its firewall, driving lower error rates and higher levels of automation. ONE Insurance selected Hyperscience for its ability to reliably process handwriting and low-resolution images, its quick time-to-value and proven track record in the insurance industry.

“It’s rewarding to work with an organization like ONE Insurance that’s on the leading edge of digitization,” said Nay Odutola, Vice President of EMEA, Hyperscience. “Thanks to our cutting-edge technology, ONE Insurance will be able to mitigate the costs and risks associated with traditional manual processes and unlock new operational efficiencies to deliver an exceptional customer and broker experience.”

The win reflects increased demand for the Hyperscience offering across the EMEA region. In 2019, the company opened a London office, joining its New York City and Sofia, Bulgaria locations, to meet growing demand for enterprise automation. The company also added German, French and Spanish language processing capabilities to its platform. In June 2020, Hyperscience announced a $60M Series C financing round led by Bessemer Venture Partners, on the heels of accelerated business momentum, including over 300% revenue growth year-over-year and a 3x increase in platform usage month-over-month.
