NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, May 23, 2018 / — The Stati Parties have requested permission from the U.S. District Court for the District of Columbia in Stati et al. v. Rep. of Kazakhstan to take steps to enforce and execute the $520 million arbitral award issued in their favor against Kazakhstan under the Energy Charter Treaty, including by attaching Kazakh state commercial assets in the United States.

The Stati Parties expect the D.C. court to rule imminently on this motion, filed April 23, 2018, at which time they will aggressively move to seize any such assets that their ongoing investigation reveals. The Stati Parties have already begun the process of obtaining discovery — which, under U.S. law, permits a judgment creditor to obtain information concerning a judgment debtor’s assets on a worldwide basis — from both Kazakhstan and from the U.S.-based financial institutions that manage its assets.

Indeed, a U.S. federal court has recently ordered a major U.S. financial institution to provide testimony concerning Kazakh state assets. The Stati Parties are seeking additional discovery, including the deposition of a senior U.S.-based Kazakh government official.

The Stati Parties’ motion to begin enforcement activities in the United States follows on the heels of a decision of the D.C. court granting the Stati Parties’ request for recognition of the arbitral award as an enforceable U.S. judgment under the terms of the New York Convention on the Recognition and Enforcement of Foreign Arbitral Awards. In granting the Stati Parties’ request on March 23, 2018, the D.C. Court rejected Kazakhstan’s defenses to recognition and enforcement in their entirety, and recognized and entered judgment against Kazakhstan for the full amount of the award.

In confirming the award, the D.C. court, for the second time, refused to allow Kazakhstan to introduce its claimed evidence that the award was “procured by fraud,” and rejected Kazakhstan’s argument that it had erred when it ruled, in May 2016, that the award itself showed that the tribunal had not relied on any “fraudulent evidence” when it ruled in the Stati Parties’ favor.

The Stati Parties’ U.S. enforcement efforts are part of the long-running battle to enforce an arbitral award issued in December 2013 for violating the investor protection provisions of the Energy Charter Treaty. A tribunal constituted under the auspices of the Stockholm Chamber of Commerce found that Kazakhstan violated its international obligation to treat the Stati Parties’ investments fairly and equitably and awarded the Stati Parties more than US$500 million in damages, legal costs, and interest.

The award has since been fully upheld by two tiers of the Swedish judiciary, including the Swedish Supreme Court.

In addition to their planned enforcement activities in the U.S., the Stati Parties have now secured attachments of Kazakhstan’s property worth approximately US$28 billion before various courts in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, and Luxembourg, respectively. In light of the award’s recognition and pending enforcement in the United States and the $28 billion in Kazakh state assets attached in the Netherlands, Belgium, Sweden, and Luxembourg, the Stati Parties note that the recent decision of an English court to allow a trial on Kazakhstan’s contrived fraud allegations is disappointing but ultimately irrelevant to their global enforcement strategy.

On May 11, 2018, an English court issued a ruling that the Stati Parties could not discontinue recognition and enforcement proceedings commenced several years ago in the England, based on certain fraud allegations made by Kazakhstan that have since been dismissed by courts in the U.S. and Sweden (including the Swedish Supreme Court). The English court ordered to conduct a trial on the hypothetical question of whether enforcement of the award would contravene English public policy, notwithstanding the fact that the Stati Parties are not seeking enforcement in England because of their successful enforcement activities in other jurisdictions and because they lack the financial resources to continue their enforcement efforts in England in light of the court’s decision to conduct a full trial notwithstanding that the fraud allegations made by Kazakhstan have been dismissed by courts in the U.S. and Sweden as having no effect on the award.

In making its ruling, the English court has chosen to ignore the fact that the highest court at the seat of the arbitration in Sweden and the courts in the U.S. have rejected that such fraud allegations had any impact on the arbitration award. Rather than continue to waste time and resources on a trial in England, where the Stati Parties are no longer seeking enforcement, the Stati Parties instead intend to continue aggressively to seek collection of the award based on attachments of Kazakh state commercial assets in those jurisdictions that respect the determination rendered by the highest court of the seat of arbitration in Sweden to the effect that the award is proper and enforceable.

The investments into various altcoins have brought the early proponents of virtual payment systems the returns that are nothing short of spectacular.

TORONTO, ONTARIO, CANADA, May 23, 2018 / — It’s no wonder that the cryptocurrency space commands such intense attention. The investments into various altcoins have brought the early proponents of virtual payment systems the returns that are nothing short of spectacular. In fact, cryptocurrency valuations in 2017 have grown to nearly a trillion dollars, which signifies a 5500% increase from 2014. Compared to the stock market with its puny 7-15% return, crypto appeared to be that “holy grail” of investment every individual with money to burn is hoping to find some day.

But by now, the attitude towards virtual currencies had changed drastically. The list of failed or fraudulent cryptocurrency enterprises is a mile long, and regulators are either unable or unwilling to address the persistent problems in the space. Still, whatever is your feeling towards crypto, its meteoric rise is unequivocally due to the flourishing of the blockchain technology. And the Blockchain Technology Foundation is created to make sure that the proverbial light remains brightly lit for those who realize that the cryptocurrency merely is one of many applications the blockchain technology had spawned.

For instance, it’s obvious that the flaws in the banking sector are making our lives miserable. The lengthy validation periods for various remittances drives us crazy. The constant meddling by third parties makes virtually any transaction many times more expensive than it needs to be. The continuous necessity to interact with a physical agent – a banking branch, an accountant, a tax office – slows things down to a crawl and complicates business settlements tremendously. The many other inconveniences are abundant and apparently are not going away any time soon.

The BCTF is working with the volunteer blockchain enthusiasts to fix all these problems by facilitating research into the three whales the future economy will rest upon – decentralization, transparency, and speed of transaction. The blockchain-based networks implement those standards by simply distributing data among the nodes situated throughout the world, rather than keeping it on a local server. The BCTF regional offices will oversee the process.

We will help aspiring businesses and working people to unpack and utilize the obvious advantages of the blockchain in many capacities. For instance, creating registries of labor contracts on blockchains is gaining popularity right now and the BCTF volunteer developers are already testing software for the creation of a specific smart contract that enumerates and codifies relationship between an employer and an employee. This particular application of the blockchain technology is incredibly timely for the third world countries where the worker-boss interactions are still very fluid.
In a world where tens of millions of people are earning their wages through forced labor, where child labor is rampant, and even slavery is no longer a remnant of the past, this blockchain application is particularly important.

The BCTF volunteer developers are making significant strides in the realm digital identity. Correctly authenticating parties to an online transaction has been a challenge since the appearance of an online marketplace model in the early 2000s. At BCTF, we’re consulting several developer teams who are working on layering the security on a blockchain in such a way that would expedite transactions while ensuring total privacy and complete transparency. It may sound dull to you but remember that even in 2018 we still live in a world, in which more than a billion people have no verifiable identity. It is essential to include those people in global processes, give them voices, ways to earn wages and spend their earnings without the risk of being defrauded or robbed.

Once the issues of identity are settled, the BCTF will oversee the creation of data exchanges. Think of them as eBay for information – data, ideas, patents, copyright, etc. The BCTF and its team of volunteer researchers and developers will make sure that this critical path is explored with due diligence. It is our firm belief that data should be moving freely on the internet and available to everyone similar to fresh water: regardless of the aggressive corporate attempts to turn the natural wealth into commodities and tradable assets, our planet/our data belongs to all of us.

IDAHO FALLS, UNITED STATES, May 22, 2018 / — A series of prominent speakers at a May 15-16, 2018 Ready4Nuclear workshop with a capacity crowd of key Western U.S. and Canadian suppliers expressed optimism regarding emerging advanced Small Modular Reactors (SMR) deployments at the Idaho National Laboratory and the Canadian Nuclear Laboratories.

M-Commerce Security Report by Appknox & SEWORKS Finds High-level Vulnerabilities in 84% of Shopping Apps

mcommerce security report appknox seworks

Based on security testing of top 50 mobile apps in the shopping category in the US

SAN FRANCISCO, USA, May 22, 2018 / — Mobile security companies, Appknox and SEWORKS, published the results of a joint detailed security assessment of the top 50 Android mobile shopping apps in the United States. The report, “Security Status in m-commerce,” reveals that more than 84% of the shopping apps have three or more high-level security vulnerabilities.

Prateek Panda, Co-Founder and CMO of Appknox said, “The idea is to generate awareness that many popular mobile apps built today are plagued by security issues and vulnerabilities. We chose the shopping category because this is one of the categories with the most downloaded apps that also involve numerous financial transactions on a daily basis. It’s important for businesses to become proactive and perform a security check before launching mobile apps. This report is an attempt to encourage a step in that direction.”

“Mobile shopping experience is becoming extremely convenient with options to store the consumer’s credit card and shipping address information. Often times, shoppers simply need to click on the purchase button on an app to complete their shopping, without entering any additional information. However, do those apps have sufficient security measures? That’s the key question we wanted to ask and that is what our report helps answer.” said Sung Cho, VP of Growth and Strategy for AppSolid.

Here are some of the security vulnerabilities Appknox and SEWORKS uncovered:

A total of 274 vulnerabilities were detected among the top 50 Android mobile shopping apps, and all had security risks. The apps were tested across 34 different security testing categories.

94% of the apps failed an “Unprotected Exported Receivers” test. Android apps export receivers, which respond to external broadcast announcements and communicate with other apps. For instance, when Receivers are not protected — hackers can modify the app’s behavior as they wish, and insert data that doesn’t belong to apps.

70% of the apps were found to be affected by “Unprotected Exported Activities.” Activities are executed via authorized access. When an Activity is exported with no protection, it can be remotely launched outside of the app. This may allow hackers to access to sensitive information, modify the internal structure of the applications, or deceive a user into communicating with the compromised application while believing they are still interacting with the original application.

64% of the apps were affected with “App Extending WebView Client.” When WebView Clients are not correctly protected in-app extensions, hackers can deceive users into inputting sensitive personal information in fake or copied apps, resulting in loss of user data, damages, and SSL compromises.

The complete list of security vulnerabilities can be found in the Appknox and SEWORKS report, “Security Status in m-commerce.”

CVR Medical Corp. (OTCQB:CRRVF)


CVR Medical Corp. (TSXV: CVM) (FSE: B3BN) (OTCQB: CRRVF) ("CVR Medical") announces it has retained BUYINS.NET,, a leading provider of Regulation SHO compliance monitoring, short sale trading statistics and market integrity surveillance, has initiated coverage on CVR Medical (OTCQB: CRRVF) (TSXV: CVM) (FSE: B3BN) after releasing the latest short sale data through May 17, 2018. The total aggregate number of shares shorted since January 2017 is approximately 14.37 million shares. Approximately 45.60% of daily trading volume is short selling.

Friction Factor calculates if a fair market is being made in the shares of CRRVF. 49% of the previous 35 trading days have been positive or bullish-biased and 51% have been negative or bearish-biased.

Regulation SHO requires bona-fide market-making activities to include making purchases and sales in roughly comparable amounts. The Commission has stated that bona-fide market-making DOES NOT include activity that is related to speculative selling strategies for investment purposes of the broker-dealer and is disproportionate to the usual market making patterns or practices of the broker-dealer in that security. Likewise, where a market-maker posts continually at or near the best offer, but does not also post at or near the best bid, the market-maker's activities would not generally qualify as bona-fide market-making. Moreover, a market-maker that continually executes short sales away from its posted quotes would generally not be considered to be engaging in bona-fide market-making.

BUYINS.NET monitors CRRVF market-makers daily for compliance with Fair Market-Making Requirements.

Banking Veteran Enters Third Year of Improving Financial Institutions' Bottom Lines

A 25-year veteran of the banking industry finds himself in high demand as he finishes his second year working with Richmond, VA-based Strategic Risk Associates

RICHMOND, VIRGINIA, UNITED STATES, May 22, 2018 / — As the rate of bank consolidations refuse to slow, financial institutions need to ensure they have the right skill sets on hand, either on staff or via outside expertise.

Ray Santelli, Managing Director of Credit Advisory Services for SRA, says he has provided a wide variety of solutions to financial institutions over the past year, particularly by servicing problem asset accounts on a fractional basis. He has leveraged his quarter-century of experience in community banking, commercial lending, and special assets to provide cost effective problem asset solutions to his client banks.

"The primary result of the Great Recession, persistently low interest rates and enhanced banking regulations has been consolidation, and we're continuing to experience this in 2018," said Santelli. "When banks consolidate, there is typically a disturbance in staffing, and that leaves gaps in critical functions such as asset resolution."

An overview of the services that Santelli has provided for clients in the past year includes problem loan account servicing, implementation of Special Assets Best Practices, and special Assets Committee management.

The pace of consolidation in banking isn't likely to change and will continue to stress banks' human resources, especially special asset management staffing. To discuss your bank's asset resolution needs, please call Ray Santelli at (804) 347-2136.
