Wocket Consumer FAQ:
"What is Wocket ™?
Wocket™ is a smart wallet. Like the smart phone and smart watch, NXT-ID is introducing its innovative, patent-pending Wocket™ as the next natural step in the evolution of smart devices.
"What does Wocket™ do?
Wocket™ locks all of your private information in an electronic "vault", where only an authenticated owner can authorize access to the data. Thus, you can "lock it with Wocket™ in your pocket", protecting your private information from unauthorized access.
"What makes Wocket™ smart?
Wocket™ smart wallet protects all of your private information inside an electronic vault while reducing the number of cards in your wallet. Dynamic pairing for authentication and encrypted data transfer with other secondary devices along with a plethora of new, innovative features makes Wocket™ the smartest wallet ever devised.
"How is Wocket™ different from other smart card solutions?
Wocket™ is not a smart card - it is a smart wallet. Thus, it can communicate with smart cards, but is not limited in the number, type, or method of communication of private information that typically restricts the use of a smart card. Furthermore, Wocket™ is not dependent on proximity or any other external factors to secure and choose soft-cards containing private information.
"How is Wocket™ different from other digital wallet solutions?

Rather than replace a wallet as many "digital wallet" technologies attempt to do, we chose to improve the wallet. Unlike other digital wallet solutions that depend on connectivity to choose a payment account, Wocket™ does not depend upon the cloud to select or make a payment.
"Does Wocket™ require another device, such as a cell phone?
No. Although Wocket™ does not require any other peripheral for security or "proximity sensing", Wocket™ can authenticate with secondary devices prior to transaction as an additional step in security as well as utilize a Wocket™ app on other devices to select or manage a soft-card, all without revealing private information.
"How do I access my private information?
A combination of biometrics, personal PIN or pattern provides multi-factor security for your Wocket™. Once Wocket™ verifies your identity, you can simply select whatever soft-card or information you want from the touch screen display, or in some configurations, your voice command.
"How many cards can be securely stored on a Wocket™?
Up to 10,000 cards, records, coupons, etc. and up to 100 voice commands can also be stored on Wocket™. More can be supported with optional additional memory.

The Global Race for Consumer Taste: Sugar vs. Stevia; PepsiCo (PEP), Coca-Cola (KO), GLG Life Tech (TSX: GLG), (GLGLF) and Pure Circle (LSE: PURE.L)

New York, NY - Point Roberts, WA - April 15, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) Investorideas.com staff: Investorideas.com, global news source covering leading sectors including food and beverage and LOHAS (Lifestyles of Health and Sustainability) issues an alert on the global trend of rising stevia sales.

As health concerns of too much sugar continue to make headlines, diehard sugar fans like The Coca-Cola Company ( NYSE:KO ) and PepsiCo NYSE:PEP ) continue to push international sales of sugary sodas. However, a trend towards healthier alternatives such as stevia continue to be reflected in the increased sales of stevia makers GLG Life Tech Corporation (TSX: GLG), (OTC: GLGLF) and PureCircle Limited (LSE:PURE.L).
A global battle about health and sustainability is brewing between vegans and the meat industry, and the sugar and stevia industries. According to the Global Stevia Institute, "Stevia's great tasting, zero-calorie sweetness not only can be part of a healthful diet, it can be part of a more environmentally friendly diet too.”
Companies that have built empires on sugary sodas and fast food burgers are making concessions with stevia drinks and salads but they are still pushing the original, less healthy products that made their brands iconic. However, the numbers are starting to show what trend consumers really want.
According to Zenith International, over the past six years, stevia has enjoyed a rapid rise in popularity - on a global scale. A new study by leading food and drink consultancy Zenith estimates that worldwide sales of stevia reached 4,100 tonnes in 2013, a 6.5% increase on 2012, taking its overall market value to $304 million US.
"As rising levels of obesity and diabetes continue to generate headlines, there has never been so much emphasis on reducing our caloric intake as well as consuming healthier foods and beverages,” commented Zenith Senior Market Intelligence Consultant Davide Deiana. "After persistent efforts by key producers, which led to widespread legislative approval, stevia is finally being recognised for its natural, zero-calorie, sweetening properties.”
GLG Life Tech Corporation (TSX: GLG), (OTC: GLGLF) ( www.glglifetech.com) a producer of high quality stevia and other natural sweeteners, reported earnings on March 31 st to shareholders, noting it i ncreased the percentage of international sales for the twelve months ending December 31, 2013 to 30% from approximately 7% in 2012. According to the company, this change in sales strategy towards higher purity stevia extracts to international customers was an important driver towards improved gross margins, as in 2012, a number of the lower purity sales were sold below cost.
The Company notes it has already received purchase orders as of March 31st that exceeds 50% of 2013's full year revenues from international customers ($4.8 million in fiscal 2013).
The Company also reported the success of its non-GMO hybrid breeding program, which has resulted in a number of new strains .The Company is of the view that the consumer's preference will always be "naturally sourced from a stevia leaf" glycosides compared to those originating from a different process such as fermentation.
According to The Beverage Digest Newsletter, carbonated soft-drink sales hit their lowest point since 1995, with 2013 marking the ninth consecutive year of declining soda sales. Also according to Beverage Digest, "while Coca-Cola ( NYSE:KO ) improved its market share by 0.4% to 42.4%, the flagship brand Diet Coke reported a 6.8% fall in volumes. Consumers have been shifting to natural and healthier beverages with less sugar and calorie content due to the health risks associated with sugary drinks. The diet counterparts have fared even worse, with the artificial sweetener aspartame being criticized for causing sugar cravings, dehydration, weight gain and even heart diseases. Health and wellness concerns have further caused a 7% decline in diet soda consumption in the domestic.”
In late January of this year, PureCircle Limited (LSE:PURE.L) announced its 2013 Calorie Footprint. The global producer of high-purity stevia ingredients reported it has supplied enough stevia sweeteners to enable the food and beverage industry to remove 1.8 trillion calories from global diets. "In our 2013 fiscal year, we supplied enough stevia to enable a reduction of 500 billion calories from global diets,” explained Ajay Chandran, director of corporate sustainability.
"Since we started monitoring in 2006, we've supplied enough stevia to help the industry achieve a reduction of approximately two trillion calories in food and beverage products. The pace at which we're helping the food and beverage industry moderate calories is increasing at a significantly faster rate than we anticipated. As a result, we now have the capability to help the food and beverage industry reduce up to two trillion calories per year. This positions us well to achieve our cumulative calorie footprint reduction goal by 2020.”
PepsiCo ( NYSE:PEP ) has introduced stevia into some of its brands including Pepsi Next but apparently wants to stick by its sugars. It has announced plans for this summer to launch "Made with Real Sugar' offerings - "Pepsi Made with Real Sugar," "Pepsi Vanilla Made with Real Sugar," and "Pepsi Wild Cherry Made with Real Sugar." Apparently Pepsi confirmed the planned roll-out to USA TODAY, but did not comment further.
The World Health Organisation (WHO) has joined the battle against sugar consumption globally saying, "There is increasing concern that consumption of free sugars, particularly in the form of sugar-sweetened beverages, may result in both reduced intake of foods containing more nutritionally adequate calories and an increase in total caloric intake, leading to an unhealthy diet, weight gain and increased risk of non-communicable diseases (NCDs)."
So are the iconic brands really getting the message or will they continue to see their sales fall while new competition appeals to what consumer trends are dictating ? … Only time will tell.

Mining Stock Alert: SilverCrest (TSX: SVL) (NYSE MKT: SVLC) Announces Q1 Production 201,101 Ounces Silver and 7,545 Ounces Gold

Vancouver, British Columbia - April 15, 2014 (Investorideas.com Mining Stocks Newswire) SilverCrest Mines Inc. (TSX:SVL) ( NYSE MKT: SVLC) is pleased to announce silver and gold production numbers for the first quarter of 2014 from its 100% owned Santa Elena Mine located in Sonora, Mexico. For additional information and to view photos and videos, please visit the Company’s website at www.silvercrestmines.com.

Production Highlights of Q1, 2014 vs. Q1, 2013;
  • Silver production of 201,101 ounces; a 31% increase.
  • Gold production of 7,545 ounces; a 4% increase.
  • Silver equivalent (1) production of 653,801 ounces; a 17% increase.
  • Waste to ore ratio of 0.94 was consistent with the mine plan; a 78% decrease.
  • Ore Tonnes crushed decreased 21% to 200,982 tonnes with throughput averaging 2,233 tpd .
  • Average grades loaded on pad increased from 62.1gpt to 86.8 gpt (40%) for silver and from 1.54 to 1.79 gpt (16%) for gold.
N. Eric Fier, President and COO stated ; “During the first three months of 2014, Santa Elena experienced lower ore and waste tonnes mined from the open pit as it approached the end of its mine life. However, metal production exceeded corporate guidance projections for the quarter. The Company continues to focus on the completion stages of the Santa Elena Expansion Plan which should significantly increase our annual precious metal production starting in mid-2014. The recently announced pit closure at Santa Elena may have some impact on Q2 production but SilverCrest maintains the previously announced 2014 corporate production guidance of 3.3 to 3.6 million ounces AgEq (60:1). ”
Investorideas.com Newswire (1) Silver equivalent ("AgEq") ounces consist of the number of ounces of silver production/sold plus the number of ounces of gold production/sold multiplied by 60:1 gold price to silver price ratio, as determined in the 2014 budget, prior to Q1 2014, the AgEq ratio was based on the spot gold price to the spot silver price at the quarter end dates for financial reporting. All numbers are rounded.
First quarter of 2014 metal production was down 12% and 18% for silver and gold, respectively, compared to Q4, 2013. The decrease in silver and gold production was related to reduced ore tonnes mined and crushed in Q1 2014, which was somewhat offset by higher gold and silver grades. Open pit mining and crushing activities were reduced in Q1 and ultimately discontinued on April 04, 2014. No further ore will be loaded on the leach pad with ongoing stockpiling of high grade underground ore for milling. Silver and gold production will continue from the pad until at least August 2014.
SilverCrest is now focusing on the accelerated development of the underground mine at Santa Elena with 2,480 metres of the main ramp driven to date (570m level), which will provide access to high grade mill feed starting in Q2 2014. Initially, the mill will process leach pad ore only and underground ore will be stockpiled. In late Q2, blending of leach pad and underground ore should begin with testing of optimal mix ratios in H2, 2014.
First Quarter Financial Results Release:
The Company plans to issue its first quarter financial results on Thursday, May 15, 2014.
The Qualified Person under National Instrument (NI 43-101) Standards of Disclosure for Mineral Projects for this News Release is N. Eric Fier, CPG, P.Eng, President and Chief Operating Officer for SilverCrest Mines Inc., who has reviewed and approved its contents.
SilverCrest Mines Inc. (NYSE MKT: SVLC; TSX: SVL) is a Canadian precious metals producer headquartered in Vancouver, BC. SilverCrest’s flagship property is the 100%-owned Santa Elena Mine, located 150 km northeast of Hermosillo, near Banamichi in the State of Sonora, México. The mine is a high-grade, epithermal silver and gold producer, with an estimated life of mine of 8 years and operating cash costs of $11 per ounce of silver equivalent (55:1 Ag:Au) for the open pit heap leach and underground mine. SilverCrest anticipates that the new 3,000 tonnes per day conventional mill facility at the Santa Elena Mine should recover an average annual rate of 1.5 million ounces of silver and 32,800 ounces of gold over the current reserve. Major expansion and construction of the 3,000 tonnes per day conventional mill facility is nearing completion and is expected to significantly increase metals production at the Santa Elena Mine (open pit and underground) in 2014 and beyond. Exploration programs continue to make new discoveries at Santa Elena and also have rapidly advanced the definition of a large polymetallic deposit at the La Joya property in Durango State, Mexico.

The Company's forward-looking statements are based on beliefs, expectations and opinions of management on the date the statements are made. For the reasons set forth above, investors should not place undue reliance on forward-looking statements.

Breaking Tech News: NXT-ID's (OTCQB: NXTD) Dynamic Pairing Prevents Security Vulnerabilities Such as Heartbleed Security Leak

SHELTON, CT - April 14, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) NXT-ID, Inc. (OTCQB: NXTD), a biometric authentication company focused on the growing mobile commerce market, announced today solutions to prevent issues such as the Heartbleed OpenSSL security leak using its patent pending Dynamic Pairing.
Investorideas.com Newswire
Gino Pereira, CEO of Nxt-ID said, "Dynamic Pairing is an important part of our MobileBio® product offerings including Wocket™. What sets us apart is that we not only authenticate who you are to access your private information, but we also protect it through sophisticated and novel encryption methods."
OpenSSL, a widely used open-source encryption standard, recently became the source of one of the largest security flaws ever reported. A little more than half the Internet is secured with OpenSSL, not including all the various email, chat, and app services on various platforms. The security flaw takes advantage of what OpenSSL calls a "heartbeat," where data is exchanged between a device and a server. Under normal circumstances, a device can only request a specific amount of data from the service. However, a recent bug introduced into the OpenSSL codebase allowed more than the specific amount to be extracted, causing more information to be revealed to the device than the device should be authorized to receive.
NXT-ID's Dynamic Pairing has its own heartbeat method, but unlike other methods such as OpenSSL, each data request is dynamic and based upon a risk analysis algorithm that inherently validates authentication. Since, by its very nature, authentication under dynamic pairing changes with each access, unauthorized data can never be revealed to any device. Dynamic Pairing adds authentication and security that overcome traditional vulnerabilities of methods such SSL and TLS.
In the case of Heartbleed, a hacker is accessing data over what the server assumed to be, a secure channel. The hacker then uses that channel to continually probe the server for more and more data. With Dynamic Pairing, the authentication score determines the level of trust the server gives an incoming connection. When a server utilizes Pairing Codes which are encrypted with dynamic authentication scores, a server would not be susceptible to an attack like Heartbleed.

Stevia / LOHAS Stock Alert: GLG (TSX: GLG) Announces High Purity Reb M GRAS Notification With FDA

Vancouver, B.C. - April 14, 2014 (Investorideas.com Newswire) GLG Life Tech Corporation (TSX: GLG) ("GLG" or the "Company"), a global leader in the agricultural and commercial development of high quality natural sweeteners, announces that it has submitted a Generally Recognized as Safe ("GRAS") notification with the United States Food and Drug Administration ("FDA") for its high purity Rebaudioside M stevia extract product.

This notification represents many months of work to develop the product and all required documentation under the FDA-administered GRAS process to demonstrate that GLG's Reb M extract meets the FDA's criteria for safety. This included in-depth consultation with GRAS Associates, LLC who convened an independent panel of scientists to spearhead this safety assessment.
GLG has now prepared and submitted six GRAS filings related to its stevia extract products --- the largest number filed by any company in the world today. GLG has three other GRAS projects underway for additional high purity stevia products and Luo Han Guo products that are expected to be released for review by the FDA in 2014.
GLG has the largest number of stevia products certified under the GRAS process including rebaudioside A products ranging from purities of 50 to 97%, high purity stevioside (STV) and now high purity rebaudioside M. Additional products currently underway for additional GRAS work include high purity rebaudioside C and high purity rebaudioside D. The company is also working on a GRAS application for Luo Han Guo extracts.

Biotech News Alert: Q & A Interview with C.E.O of Sunshine Biopharma (OTCQB: SBFM) Discussing Recent News of Improved Effectiveness of Lead Compound Adva-27a

New York, NY - Point Roberts, WA - April 14, 2014 (Investorideas.com Biotech Newswire) Investorideas.com, a global news source covering leading sectors including biotech and pharma, issues an exclusive Q&A interview with the CEO of Sunshine Biopharma Inc. ( OTCQB: SBFM ), a pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer.

Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Biopharma shares insights into recent developments with the company’s lead compound, Adva-27a.
Interview:
Q: Investorideas.com
The company recently announced improved effectiveness of your lead compound Adva-27a. Can you explain to investors what the results were and what that means moving forward?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Biopharma
We resolved the two isomeric forms of our lead anticancer compound, Adva-27a, and as a result the specific activity of the drug candidate has increased 9.5-fold. We had previously announced that the concentration at which Adva-27a inhibited 50% of the activity of Topoisomerase II, an enzyme that cancer cells use to proliferate, (IC50) was 13.7 micromolar (see press release issued on October 5, 2011). As a result of this recent laboratory development Adva-27a’s IC50 has dropped 9.5-fold, to 1.44 micromolar.
This implies that significantly lower quantities of the drug can be used to achieve the same effect. In the long run, this could also mean lower therapeutic dosages for our future breast cancer and pancreatic cancer patients, which theoretically should result in reduced side-effects.
Q: Investorideas.com
Will this improved effectiveness apply to all the cancers you are targeting or just one specific target?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Biopharma
Yes, theoretically this improved effectiveness applies to all cancer types in which Adva-27a is effective.
Q: Investorideas.com
What triggered you toresolve the two isomeric forms of your lead anticancer compound, Adva-27a?.
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Biopharma
Resolving the isomeric forms of a lead compound is usually one of the matters addressed at the final stages of drug synthesis. Not all compounds have isomeric forms. Adva-27a happens to be a compound that does, owing to the presence of a carbohydrate moiety which is important for the anticancer activity of the molecule.
Q: Investorideas.com
You announced in late January that the company is now targeting pancreatic cancer as a second indication for Adva-27a, what is the significance of a second indication?
A: Dr. Steve N. Slilaty, Chief Executive Officer of Sunshine Biopharma
Pancreatic cancer has an extremely poor prognosis. Most pancreatic cancer patients will die within one year of diagnosis. Cancer of the pancreas is the fourth most common cause of cancer-related deaths in the United States. Recently, the Pancreatic Cancer Action Network released a special report entitled, ‘The Alarming Rise of Pancreatic Cancer Deaths in the United States: Why We Need to Stem the Tide Today’. The alarming findings presented in the report included the fact that by the year 2020, and possibly as early as 2015, pancreatic cancer will move from the fourth leading cause of cancer deaths to the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. It is the aggressive nature and lack of effective therapy that lead us to apply Adva-27a for use against pancreatic cancer.
About Adva-27a
Adva-27a is Sunshine Biopharma's lead anticancer compound, a small molecule that has recently been shown to be effective at killing multidrug resistant breast cancer cells, small-cell lung cancer cells, uterine sarcoma cells and pancreatic cancer cells (Published in ANTICANCER RESEARCH, Volume 32, Pages 4423-4432, October 2012). Adva-27a is currently in the IND-Enabling stage of development. The original U.S. patent covering Adva-27a was issued on August 7, 2012 under U.S. patent number 8,236,935.
About Sunshine Biopharma Inc. ( OTCBB: SBFM )
Sunshine Biopharma is an early stage pharmaceutical company focused on the research, development and commercialization of drugs for the treatment of various forms of cancer. Sunshine Biopharma recently announced that it has initiated IND-Enabling studies for its lead antitumor compound, Adva-27a, which is currently targeted for multidrug resistant cancer.

Medical Technology Breaking News: Aethlon Medical (OTCQB: AEMD) Note: U.S. Clinical Progression

SAN DIEGO - April 9, 2014 (Investorideas.com newswire) Aethlon Medical, Inc. (OTCBB:AEMD), today released the following note authored by its Chairman and CEO, Jim Joyce.

In the coming months, we plan to initiate the first FDA approved study of Hemopurifier® therapy in the United States. Historically, U.S. clinical progression of extracorporeal devices directed toward a single disease indication has been a proven model for value creation.
Our clinical objectives are a bit more ambitious as we aim to navigate Hemopurifier® therapy into both cancer and infectious disease indications. Yes, we plan to file an investigational device exemption (IDE) to treat cancer later this year. We are also investigating Emergency Use Authorization (EUA) opportunities based on our broad-spectrum bioterror and pandemic threat data and have begun to explore Humanitarian Use Device (HUD) pathways for orphan conditions that affect fewer than 4,000 individuals in the U.S. each year.
To support the breadth of our long-term therapeutic vision, we often encounter challenging decisions. As an example, we recently disclosed a clinical relationship with DaVita Clinical Research, which required a lengthy process to establish and thus contributed to delay the initiation of our hepatitis c virus (HCV) feasibility study. However, the resulting relationship transitioned our potential clinical footprint from a single-site institute to an institute with more than 250 clinical sites to support long-term regulatory objectives.
Since crossing the threshold of having the FDA clear our candidate therapy for human studies, our therapeutic focus has been honed toward clinical progression to support future registration of Hemopurifier® therapy in the United States. The protocol of our forthcoming feasibility study calls for the enrollment of ten HCV-infected end-stage renal disease (ESRD) patients who have not received HCV drug therapy for at least 30 days. The protocol includes a control phase which consists of three consecutive standard dialysis treatments during week one followed by the inclusion of our Hemopurifier® for a total of six treatments administered during weeks two and three. The rate of adverse events observed during the Hemopurifier® treatment phase will be compared to the rate experienced during the control phase. Per-treatment changes of viral load will be observed through PCR analysis and we will also quantitate HCV viral copies captured within the Hemopurifier® during each treatment session. Successful completion of the feasibility study will set the stage for us to conduct pivotal efficacy studies required for Hemopurifier® market clearance. The study will also contribute data toward the human safety challenge requirement to advance the Hemopurifier® as a broad-spectrum countermeasure against viral bioterror and pandemic threats, whose lethality do not allow for the administration of clinical efficacy studies. Based on our experience conducting a similar protocol overseas, we are cautiously optimistic.
In closing, it is our sincere hope to reward shareholders whose support never wavered, even in the face of material setbacks and the clinical uncertainty of whether FDA would permit Hemopurifier® studies in the United States. As a result of this support, we have an opportunity to advance our therapeutic platform into a wide-range of life-threatening disease conditions.
