Drivers, restraints, and opportunities

Growing demand for aircrafts from the civil and military aviation sectors and surge in usage of LED lights in comparison with incandescent lights drive the global aircraft lighting market. However, higher cost of LED lights and growing backlog in the delivery of aircraft restrain the market growth. On the other hand, increase in demand for lightweight aircraft components creates new opportunities in the coming years.

Aircraft Lighting Market To Reach $2.0 Bn, Globally, By 2027 At 4.7% CAGR

Covid-19 Scenario

Several major market players have halted the production of aircraft lighting amidst the lockdown.
During the coronavirus pandemic, the revenue generated from the commercial aircraft segment will decline significantly as airline companies across various countries had suspended their domestic and international services amid lockdown due to the Covid-19 pandemic.
Aircraft lighting is used inside an aircraft cabin to give aesthetic look to the cabin interiors. Amid lockdown, commercial aircraft manufacturing has been stopped across the globe, which is likely to decline market growth.

A lot of online casinos and online gambling sites have been accused of not being transparent and hiding their internal workings and the methods for their dealings.

Low cost airlines are passenger airlines, which offer travelling service tickets at relatively cheaper rate compared to other airlines (full service or traditional airline). Low cost airlines are also known as no frills airlines, prizefighters, low-cost carriers (LCC), discount airlines, and budget airlines. Some of the popular low cost airlines include Ryanair and EasyJet.

The growth of the market is attributed to the rise in economic activity, ease of travel, travel & tourism industry, urbanization, changes in lifestyle, consumers preference for low cost service along with non-stops, and frequent service, increase in purchasing power of middle class households especially in the developing regions, and high internet penetration coupled with e-literacy.

Florida State Park Volunteers Contribute Over One Million Hours Service

There are more than 10,400 volunteers who safely work alongside park staff.

Florida State Parks are rightly recognized as the best in the nation and this would not be possible without the enormous role played by thousands of volunteers”

— Gil Ziffer

TALLAHASSEE, FL, UNITED STATES, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Florida State Parks Foundation today congratulated the army of state park volunteers who last year contributed more than 1 million hours of time, talent, and effort.

“Florida State Parks are rightly recognized as the best in the nation and this would not be possible without the enormous role played by thousands of volunteers”’ said Foundation President Gil Ziffer.

Last year, volunteers, including community service and AmeriCorps members, contributed 1,161,640 hours, the equivalent of an additional 559 full time employees and with a value of more than $31.5 million, he said.

There are more than 10,400 volunteers who safely work alongside park staff enhancing visitor experiences and helping with park maintenance and resource management. Park volunteers often bring special skills and knowledge and feel rewarded by helping others.

The Foundation, founded in 1993 as Friends of Florida State Parks and renamed in 2018, is a 501(c)(3) nonprofit corporation whose mission is to support and help sustain the Florida Park Service, its 175 award-winning parks and trails, local Friends groups and more than 10,000 park volunteers.

It does this through programs that preserve and protect state parks, educate visitors about the value of state parks, encourage community engagement and active use of state parks, and advocacy.

The volunteer Board of Directors represents private and public sectors as well as local and statewide interests.

EmergingGrowth.com Reports on Why VBI Vaccines (NASDAQ: VBIV) Could Be a Contrarian Investor’s Dream

With few appreciating the science behind VBIV stock, this could be an undervalued winner

VBI Vaccines (NASDAQ:VBIV)

MIAMI, FLORIDA, USA, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — No matter how much social distancing government institutions request (or impose, in many cases), it’s becoming clear that we need a vaccine for a holistic solution to the novel coronavirus pandemic. As you know, so much of our customs depend on high-contact practices, such as shaking hands. Unless we intend to bow to each other like in Asian countries, widespread vaccination is perhaps our most viable answer.

Not surprisingly, one of the hottest sectors in the markets this year has been biotechnology. With corporations both big and small pivoting sharply to the research and development of a Covid-19 vaccine, investors have enthusiastically jumped on this bandwagon. After a substantial bout of volatility likely due to profit-taking, sentiment for the vaccine players has returned.

While the list of those garnering the most attention read like the usual suspects, there’s probably one biotech firm you haven’t heard of, VBI Vaccines (NASDAQ:VBIV). While VBIV stock soared to multi-year highs around mid-July, shares have found themselves plummeting back to earth. As several now well-known vaccine companies have entered into late-stage clinical trials for their Covid-19 candidates, the other, smaller names have lost their luster.

However, I think it’s a mistake to ignore VBIV stock. While the underlying company probably won’t be the first one to cross the clinical finish line, this race may not turn out to be a traditional one; that is, this competition could have more than one winner.

Since it’s unlikely that a Covid-19 vaccine will be available until the end of this year at the earliest, the time element isn’t as strong as it used to be. Further, 62% of Americans “are worried that ‘political pressure’ from the Trump administration will rush a coronavirus vaccine.” Safety, as it turns out, is a priority.

Americans are rational actors after all. Moreover, the deeper you drill into the narrative for the other vaccines, the more you realize that this race is still very much open.

Vaccines Feature a Startling Mixture of Pros and Cons

While the types of vaccines proposed to combat the novel coronavirus are diverse, the major formats are as follows: traditional, subunit, viral vector and nucleic acids.

First, the traditional type is the one with which we are most familiar. This process involves injecting a weakened or inactivated (dead) form of the target virus into the patient. From there, the patient’s cell takes the genetic information from the weakened/inactivated virus and initiates a process which creates antibodies. Antibodies are large Y-shaped proteins that attach to pathogens, preventing them from infecting healthy cells, thus neutralizing them.

Obviously, traditional vaccines have the longest track record of success. So, if we were judging a Covid-19 vaccine purely on efficacy, the traditional format would win out. Unfortunately, these vaccines take significant time to manufacture, which effectively rules them out.

Second, we have subunit vaccines. This process involves injecting fragments (subunits) of the novel coronavirus proteins into the patient. From there, the patient’s cells take the information from the spike proteins and initiates the process to develop antibodies.

Admittedly, subunits are compelling because they are proven to work. For instance, Recombivax HB is a Hepatitis B subunit vaccine. Further, subunits are especially appropriate for patients with underlying conditions due to their safety profile. Clearly, those who have the worst outcomes from Covid-19 are immune-compromised patients. Thus, companies like Novavax (NASDAQ:NVAX) have adopted subunits as their go-to platform.

Unfortunately, the manufacturing process to develop the nanoparticles to make these vaccines are much more complicated and expensive. Further, the complexity may require Novavax to restructure or build out more physical capacity. That could be a problem if a second wave emerges, necessitating urgency.

Third, viral-vector vaccines offer solutions that almost come out of a science fiction movie. Here, the novel coronavirus gene is placed inside a carrier (or vector, hence the name) virus (typically an adenovirus). This is then injected into the patient. The carrier virus infects a cell, but rather than killing it, the vector provides the cell with the genetic sequence of the target virus. As with the other vaccine types, the cell initiates antibody production.

Viral vectors form some of the corner blocks of gene therapy. By using the infectious nature of the adenovirus for positive health outcomes, scientists hope to address multiple genetic conditions. But the main problem with viral vectors is that patients can develop an immunoresponse against the carrier virus.

That may have been – although it’s unconfirmed – the hiccup that AstraZeneca (NYSE:AZN) incurred with its Covid-19 vaccine candidate, when a U.K. patient came down with an “unexplained illness.” While trials have resumed, many people are understandably concerned about viral vectors now.

Finally, we have nucleic-acid based vaccines. Currently, Moderna (NASDAQ:MRNA) leads this space with its messenger RNA (mRNA) solution. Here, bioengineers manufacture mRNA in a lab, placing it inside a lipid shell. This is injected into a patient’s cell, where the mRNA provides the “recipe” for coronavirus antibody production.

Compared to other vaccine types, nucleic-acid vaccines can be easily manufactured, presenting a solution for the scale problem. However, this format is the most experimental, with no nucleic-acid vaccines having been approved by the Food and Drug Administration. Therefore, if Moderna succeeds, it will be history in the making.

Why VBI Vaccines Shines Bright

Based on all scientific and administrative factors, it appears that Moderna is in the lead. However, its mRNA vaccine does have one more issue that I haven’t mentioned yet: titers or lack thereof.

According to a preliminary report from the New England Journal of Medicine regarding Moderna’s vaccine candidate, antibody titers increased dramatically between the first and second vaccinations in trial participants. This implies that mRNA-based vaccines will require two dosages. Unfortunately, this will be costly, inefficient and inconvenient to the patient.

What we really need is a one-and-done solution. And that’s where VBI Vaccines comes into the picture with its enveloped virus-like particle (eVLP) approach. Similar to a traditional vaccine, an eVLP provides the genetic sequence of the target virus to the cell. But the key difference here is that eVLP involves only the spike protein, in this case the “sticky” portion of the novel coronavirus.

Most importantly, what VBI’s eVLP approach offers is high antibody titers. That’s because the high surface-to-volume ratio of the small particles associated with eVLP vaccines enables the delivery of several copies of the spike protein. Essentially, one eVLP can bind to multiple cells, initiating a wave of antibody production.

Further, research from the Wuhan Institute of Virology notes that eVLP vaccines feature self-adjuvanting properties, an advantage over subunit vaccines. Best of all, eVLPs are known for their safety and simplicity, attributes that could make it a big winner in the Covid vaccine race.

From this year’s closing high, VBIV stock is at time of writing down 42%. Frankly, the market may be irrationally driving shares down. If you consider the science of the underlying company, you’ll recognize that this one-dose vaccination approach is incredibly relevant. Further, even if it doesn’t win the Covid battle, the PR generated for eVLPs could position VBI for upside in 2021 and beyond.

True, I would be remiss not to point out that eVLPs have bioprocessing challenges and also face regulatory scrutiny for their experimental nature. Basically, the disadvantages are similar to nucleic-acid vaccines.

However, the best nucleic-acid candidates will likely require two doses. In sharp contrast, eVLPs will only require one dose (assuming successful manufacturing). That’s the only reason it’s in the conversation right now but it’s a powerful one. With VBIV flying under the radar, now may be a good time to consider a speculative long position.

As of this writing, Josh Enomoto did not hold a position in the aforementioned securities. He is considering a position in VBIV in the next 72 hours.

Peter Triassi of Montreal Featured in Article Discussing Montreal Tourism

MONTREAL , CANADA, September 30, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — In the recently published news article, Triassi emphasizes how he has huge hopes for the city of Montreal when it comes to its economy, specifically in the area of tourism. Part of the reason for this is that Montreal Mayor Valerie Plante recently announced that an investment of $400,000 was being made to establish a new urban organization and space. This is to be used to host cultural activities downtown. The overall goal of this major financial investment is to help local businesses to continue to thrive even when they experience economic or market downturns.

For instance, the city has already set up seven terraces that are available to the public. The hope is that these terraces will attract both tourists and natives to Montreal’s downtown vicinity in the warmer months, thus contributing to the municipality in a positive way economically, according to Triassi.

In addition, activities have already been planned to make the downtown even more captivating for tourists. For instance, events that are culture-centric will include circus acts, live music acts, and theater performances. In fact, about 200 pop-up, or surprise, performances are slated to entertain individuals who have varying tastes and interests.

All in all, according to Peter Triassi of Montreal, business owners throughout the downtown area of Montreal are fairly optimistic about the city’s economy in the coming months. Thanks to the city government’s financial investment of nearly half a million dollars, coupled with the resilient spirit of the city’s entrepreneurs, Montreal is expected to continue to have a bight future no matter what the future brings.

SkyPower et la République Démocratique du Congo, Société Nationale d’Électricité (SNEL), Annoncent la signature d'un PPA historique de 1,000MW

Mon engagement présidentiel est d’améliorer nos taux d'électrification grâce aux énergies renouvelables en forgeant des partenariats avec des entreprises de classe mondiale comme SkyPower”

— Le Président de la République Démocratique du Congo, Félix Tshisekedi

KINSHASA, LA RéPUBLIQUE DéMOCRATIQUE DU CONGO, September 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — SkyPower, un développeur et opérateur mondial de projets solaires à grande échelle, et un leader reconnu et défenseur de la durabilité, aux côtés de la Société Nationale d'Électricité (SNEL SA), de la République Démocratique du Congo, a annoncé aujourd'hui la signature d'un accord historique d'achat d'électricité de 1,000MW, dans le cadre d'un PPP entre la RDC et SkyPower Green Giant (Public Private Partnership).

L'un des premiers du genre en RDC, cet accord représente une étape importante dans la vision et la stratégie du président Félix Tshisekedi, axée sur l'augmentation de la production d'énergie propre et renouvelable dans un effort pour accroitre le taux d'électrification (de 16% à environ 30% sur la prochaine décennie) et en utilisant l'énergie propre comme catalyseur éprouvé pour la création d'emplois et le développement économique substantiels. Cela devrait se traduire par environ 2,3 milliards de dollars américains de relance du PIB de la RDC et la création d’environ 30,000 (années) d’emplois.

Le projet RDC "Green Giant" démontre en outre l'engagement du président Tshisekedi en faveur de l'action climatique. Il contribue à la poussée mondiale vers les engagements de la RDC à atteindre les objectifs de développement durable des Nations Unies. "La population croissante de la RDC est l'une des plus importantes d'Afrique subsaharienne. Avec une croissance aussi forte, les besoins en infrastructures, en éducation, en santé et en services sociaux augmenteront, et l'accès à l'énergie est essentiel pour répondre à ces besoins. Mon engagement présidentiel est d’améliorer nos taux d'électrification grâce aux énergies renouvelables en forgeant des partenariats avec des entreprises de classe mondiale comme SkyPower, avec lesquelles nous sommes impatients de travailler et de grandir dans les années à venir ", a déclaré le président de la République Démocratique du Congo, Félix Tshisekedi.

Le ministre des Finances, José Sele Yalaghuli, a souligné : "Le Green Giant – RDC en tant que projet conçu à travers un PPP avec SkyPower, pour fournir une contribution estimée à 2,3 milliards de dollars au PIB du pays est un accélérateur pour la création de nouveaux emplois, et servira d'exemple pour d'autres Investisseurs Étrangers cherchant à investir dans le développement des infrastructures historiques en RDC."

"La mission et l’engagement de la SNEL SA en faveur de l’électrification et du développement économique de notre pays en fournissant une énergie renouvelable significative sont conformes aux objectifs de développement durable. Le PPP avec SkyPower démontre l’attention de la SNEL à répondre aux besoins énergétiques du pays et à assurer l’approvisionnement requis par le principal fournisseur mondial. Nous sommes ravis d'avoir conclu un accord sur ce partenariat historique ", a déclaré Jean-Bosco Kayombo Kayan, directeur général de la SNEL SA.

"Aujourd’hui est un jour de fierté pour SkyPower et la République Démocratique du Congo, car ensemble, nous avons créé un PPP qui se traduira par environ 30,000 (années) d'emplois, stimulant la croissance économique et le développement, dans le cadre des efforts de relance après la pandémie de Covid-19. Le solaire est la forme d'énergie renouvelable qui connaît la croissance la plus rapide et présente un énorme potentiel pour permettre à la RDC d'atteindre ses objectifs», a déclaré Charles Cohen, directeur commercial de SkyPower Global.

"Je voudrais exprimer ma plus sincère gratitude aux dirigeants de la RDC et tiens a souligner la contribution inestimable de l’influent Conseiller Special aux Investissements, Mr. Jean-Claude Kabongo. Des le depart il y a un peu plus d’un an, son leadership et son implication dans tous
les aspects de ce projet historique ont eu un impact tangible sur la concretisation du PPA", a ajouté Cohen.

Le ministre Eustache Muhanzi Mumbembe, des Ressources hydrauliques et de l’électricité, a souligné que "Cet accord historique démontre encore l’engagement de notre gouvernement à apporter une puissance importante pour répondre à la demande énergétique de la nation. Le partenariat "Green Giant" entre SkyPower et la SNEL SA est un exemple significatif des actions décisives de notre ministère conformément à la stratégie du gouvernement visant à augmenter les taux d'électrification et à respecter nos engagements."

Le ministre des Affaires foncières, Molendo Sakombi, a ajouté que "Ce partenariat public-privé historique souligne davantage la vision de notre gouvernement et son engagement ferme à attirer les investissements étrangers directs, comme l'a déclaré notre président à la 75e Assemblée générale des Nations Unies. L’action climatique et la construction d'une économie verte n'est pas simplement une nécessité, mais un devoir urgent. "

Soulignant la vision et la détermination du président Tshisekedi, Kerry Adler, Président et Président-directeur général de SkyPower, a souligné la reconnaissance par le gouvernement de la RDC de la puissance de l'énergie solaire, " Une énergie véritablement distribuée qui sert de catalyseur à de nouveaux emplois, à la croissance économique, et l'un des plus grands espoirs de l'humanité dans la lutte contre le changement climatique. Notre accord historique est un autre symbole des nations avant-gardistes comme la RDC, qui sont déterminées à assurer un avenir plus brillant et plus résilient. "

BAY GARDENS INCLUDES LOCAL EATERIES IN ALL-INCLUSIVE EXPERIENCE

This “Kingfish Rice Cake with Avocado Aioli” dish is inspired by the Dine Around culinary exchange experience offered by Bay Gardens Resorts.

ST. LUCIA, September 29, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Restaurants at St. Lucia’s Bay Gardens Resorts have not only carefully reopened their tables, they are also supporting nearby eateries by inviting them to make their food available to guests through the resorts’ Dine Around program.

Sanovnik Destang, Executive Director of the locally owned properties in Rodney Bay, said since resuming regular operations in July, “We have maintained all aspects of our revolutionary All-Inclusive Experience package which is enhanced by the Rodney Bay Dine Around plan.”

While St. Lucia's Coronavirus Disease 2019 (COVID-19) protocols only allowed for takeaway or delivery at independent restaurants during this first phase of its reopening of the tourism sector, the Dine Around program has facilitated the delivery of more than 300 food orders to the resorts from top local restaurants to date, “contributing over EC$35,000 (US$13,000) into the local restaurant sector in the past two months,” reported Destang, for whom the term ‘all-inclusive’ means reaching beyond the walls of the popular hotel group.

“Of course, Bay Gardens has excellent restaurant choices for guests to enjoy, such as our Hi-Tide restaurant, a recent recipient of the Travelers’ Choice award, but we wanted to ensure our local partner restaurants could share in the benefits of our unique brand of ‘all-inclusive’ tourism that truly includes everyone,” said Destang.

Guests who book for seven or more nights under the All-Inclusive Experience have access to the Dine Around program. For three nights out of their stay, they are offered a choice of fine dining restaurants that include Indian, Italian, French, seafood and sushi. Daily breakfast, lunch and dinner at the resorts’ restaurants are included as well as all drinks, including premium alcoholic beverages.

Destang is proud of how Bay Gardens team members, the majority of whom are St. Lucian and led by a predominantly female executive management team, have supported and implemented the program. "Our well-trained staff ensure the food and meal delivery process is carried out with careful attention to COVID-19 protocols and guidelines to protect the health and safety of our valued guests, team members and the local public,” he stated.

Not only does the program expand menu options for Bay Gardens guests, it also provides a cross-training opportunity for chefs to sharpen their skills which Destang said, “encourages the exchange of favorite recipes among the food preparers and the sharing of best practices.”

This culinary exchange, where chefs learn from one another in the kitchen, has caught on and produced mouthwatering results. “We have added exciting fusions of Caribbean and international dishes to our menus. All restaurants in the program will offer cross-training as a requirement, along with staff discounts to further foster the spirit of village tourism,” said Destang.

Some of the new Bay Gardens menu items, which have been inspired by the Dine Around program, include Breadfruit Arancini, Kingfish Rice Cake with Avocado Aioli, Seafood Mofongo, Butter Chicken, Dasheen Vichyssoise, and Soursop Cheesecake.

Under the All-Inclusive Experience holiday, guests also receive one free spa treatment per room each day, unlimited complimentary passes to Splash Island Water Park, complimentary nonmotorized water sports, an in-room starter pack featuring refreshments and snacks, and complimentary Wi-Fi.
