NTRR Seeks Out New Partners in the Nation’s Largest Medical Marijuana Market

SARASOTA, Fla.—Neutra Corp.’S (OTCBB: NTRR) executive leadership will travel to California this week to make new contacts and seek out partnerships in the state’s medical marijuana (MMJ) industry.

California’s medical marijuana program was approved by state voters in 1996. The state is the largest MMJ market in the U.S., with an estimated 750,000 qualified patients. It’s a marketplace NTRR is working hard to break into to compete in the $17 billion U.S. MMJ sector.

NTRR leadership plans to meet with lab technicians, growers, dispensary owners, product developers and others to learn more about technologies, systems, products and processes that might be improved through innovation.

The trip marks just the beginning of NTRR’s presence in the Golden State. Earlier this month, the company formed a new Los Angeles-based subsidiary—Cannabis Technologies, Inc.—to engineer the company’s entry into the billion-dollar medical marijuana (MMJ) market.

By providing innovative products and services related to MMJ, Neutra Corp. plans to follow in the footsteps of other successful public companies, including Cannabis Science, Inc. (PINK: CBIS), Medical Marijuana Inc. (PINK: MJNA) and Terra Tech Corp. (PINK: TRTC), enabling technological advancements in the cultivation and processing of cannabis in approved markets.

Newest Boom Industry

NTRR Broadens Scope of Medical Marijuana Initiative to Include International Markets

SARASOTA, Fla.—As new legislation opens up markets for medical marijuana (MMJ) around the globe, Neutra Crop. (OTCBB: NTRR), a growing provider of all-natural wellness solutions, plans to make its MMJ initiative international in scope.

With nations such as Italy, Canada, the Czech Republic and more following the example of states such as California and Colorado by legalizing the use of medicinal cannabis, the global market for MMJ products and services is growing fast. The U.S. medical marijuana industry alone will gross about $1.5 billion in 2013, with revenue potentially rising to $6 billion by 2018, according to a new study released by MMJ Business Daily. Overseas markets could add untold billions to that figure.

NTRR is working to capitalize on the expected growth by helping to develop and market potentially lucrative new innovations in the processing and use of cannabis-derived nutraceutical treatments for a wide variety of illnesses. The company has founded a new subsidiary, Cannabis Technologies, Inc., to lead the charge into the MMJ industry, while the parent company pursues equally promising opportunities in other nutraceutical sectors.

Currently, the company is targeting emerging MMJ businesses for both acquisition and partnership. This week, the company’s executive leadership will be in California to scout for potential targets in the region. A visit to Colorado is planned to follow.

Through its new Los Angeles-based MMJ subsidiary, Neutra Corp. plans to follow in the footsteps of other successful public companies, including Cannabis Science, Inc. (PINK: CBIS), Medical Marijuana Inc. (PINK: MJNA) and Terra Tech Corp. (PINK: TRTC), enabling technological advancements in the cultivation and processing of cannabis in approved markets.

UFC boss Dana White agrees with Cat Zingano-Miesha Tate stoppage

by John Morgan on Apr 15, 2013 at 10:00 pm ET

LAS VEGAS – UFC President Dana White isn’t exactly a fan of referee Kim Winslow. That said, the UFC boss said he has zero issue with her decision to halt this past weekend’s Cat Zingano (8-0 MMA, 1-0 UFC) vs. Miesha Tate bout (13-4 MMA, 0-1 UFC).

“She was in a bad position; I think it was a good stoppage,” White said of Tate. “People can say her hand was down and everything else, but she just ate six, seven, eight knees. It was time for the fight to be stopped.

Zingano and Tate met on the main card of this past weekend’s The Ultimate Fighter 17 Finale event. A slot as coach on “The Ultimate Fighter 18” and a shot at UFC women’s bantamweight champion Ronda Rousey hung in the balance.

Tate bagged the opening two rounds with capable striking and a strong wrestling game before Zingano charges back in the final frame. With time winding down, Zingano unleashed a barrage of knees that bloodied Tate’s face and left the former Strikeforce champ wobbled. As Zingano continued to press forward, Winslow stepped in and waved off the fight at the 2:55 mark of the third.

Tate later protested the stoppage, insisting she was still able to continue fighting. Some MMA observers also claimed the first knee strike was illegal, with Tate’s hand on the mat qualifying her as a downed opponent.

White said he believed the blow was legal and commended Winslow for stepping in when she did.

“Her hand might have been down for a second,” White said. “First of all, it’s a stupid rule anyway. It’s the dumbest rule in the sport, number one. Number two, the referee was right there while the fight was going on. Not that that’s one of my favorite referees – there’s a lot that that referee doesn’t see – but I do not agree that was a bad stoppage. It was a good stoppage. Was it illegal, what happened? If she saw it or didn’t see it, that fight needed to be stopped either way in my opinion.”

With the win, Zingano now receives a UFC title shot in her second bout with the promotion. Tate falls back in the pack, but White has often expressed his admiration for her as a fighter and isn’t likely to drop too far down the rankings. A rematch could certainly be in order at some point, but White simply doesn’t believe there should be any controversy.

“I’m not a big fan of the ref who reffed that fight; there’s a lot of stuff that that referee doesn’t see,” White said. “But I have absolutely no beef whatsoever with that stoppage.”

UFC President Dana White anticipates additional women’s divisions in future

by John Morgan on Apr 15, 2013 at 8:00 pm ET

LAS VEGAS – As he watched a group of 50 women try out for the “The Ultimate Fighter 18,” UFC President Dana White admitted he was impressed with the talent level of the fighters. And while his promotion currently employs only 135-pound women, White doesn’t believe that will always be the case.

“You would think so,” White told MMAjunkie.com (www.mmajunkie.com) when asked if he expected to add more women’s divisions to the UFC. “If you think about it, when we started this company, we had heavyweights, light heavyweights, middleweights and welterweights. That was it. When we brought in the 155-pound division, everybody was like, ‘This is crazy. They’re too small. Nobody will ever watch.’

“The evolution of this sport as it’s continued to grow, we’ve been adding weight classes, and the sport keeps getting bigger. There are more and more talented guys in all those weight classes. The same thing will happen with the women.”

To date, there have been just two women’s bouts in the UFC: February’s Ronda Rousey vs. Liz Carmouche bantamweight title fight and this past weekend’s No. 1 contender fight between Cat Zingano and former Strikeforce champ Miesha Tate. A handful of other women have already signed to the UFC’s roster, and “The Ultimate Fighter 18” will feature additional fighters hoping to score a UFC deal.

White believes the excitement surrounding the new division will inevitably lead to more women athletes competing in the sport – which in turn may very well lead to a need for more opportunities in the UFC.

“I think when you got into the 135-pound division, I knew there were enough fights for a year and a half, two years,” White said. “You think that after it starts to generate some excitement and interest that other women will pop out of the woodwork. … I think over the next couple of years, we’re really going to see a big boom.”

There are, of course, critics of the women’s game who wonder if the division has staying power or if it is simply a fad whose time will pass. Boxing aficionados point to their sport, which enjoyed a women’s boom in the 90s with fighters like Leila Ali, Christy Martin, Lucia Rijker and others but is no longer much of a draw.

White doesn’t believe his company will allow that to happen.

“I just think that this company is so different than boxing,” White said. “Women’s boxing blew up for a minute and then it just died and went away. We invest in the sport, and as long as we want women to stay, women will continue to thrive and grow.”

Green Innovations Ltd is focused on filling a void in the eco-friendly, biodegradable product array. As the world continues to trend away from tree-based products in favor of products with smaller carbon footprints, consumers are becoming more educated about the “green” products that are available to them in the marketplace and are consequently demanding higher standards for these products. In order to help satisfy this demand, Green Innovations Ltd, through its wholly-owned subsidiary Green Hygienics Inc., is the exclusive and licensed North American distributor of American Hygienics Corporation 100% tree-free, bamboo-based product line, including personal care and paper-based goods. Our products provide their end-users the opportunity to enjoy the quality and performance delivered by a company that has been producing for over a decade, the cost-benefit of a company that manufactures local raw material, and the satisfaction of knowing that by using these products they are doing their part to reduce their carbon footprint and to continue the movement towards a more healthy and sustainable planet.

“To source, manufacture, distribute, and market well-priced tree-free bamboo products of the highest quality to environmentally conscious and general consumers across North America.”

Green Innovations intends to execute a multi-faceted approach to achieve its underlying mission statement with the ultimate goal of building and maintaining shareholder value;

1) Create a financially self-sustainable company through organic growth and institutional funding when required. Green Innovations will not complete any unnecessary funding to dilute our stock; we maintain this will enhance shareholder value over the long term.

2) Expand our product line through our “quick-turnaround” concept to our existing clients as well as new clients. By listening to our clients’ needs we can roll out more new products quickly to meet growing market demands.

3) Grow our sales force in various regions across the United States. This will help the Company increase sales in new markets with new retailers and provide additional market intelligence required to introduce new products nationwide.

4) Expand our service and product offerings in Canada through new sales representatives.

5) Expand our product and sales force outside North America. The Company has identified several additional regions for potential growth, including Europe, the Middle East, as well as Central and South America.

6) Consistently review services and corporate mandate to maintain the highest level of service and products to our clients and our shareholders.

Our bamboo products are far more earth-friendly than their conventional, paper-based alternatives. Bamboo can be grown and harvested in less than 5 years, during which time the bamboo will absorb more carbon dioxide and release more oxygen than a similarly-sized group of hardwood trees. Bamboo is a grass that does not require heavy chemical treatment to flourish, and unlike their hardwood counterparts, harvested bamboo fields maintain their root systems, which means less erosion and ultimately less chemical runoff. Finally, bamboo products such as diapers, wipes, and packaging that will potentially end up in landfills, will biodegrade at much faster rates than will petroleum-based diapers, cotton wipes, and foam packaging. Throughout the life cycle, the advantages of using bamboo are clear. We, at Green Innovations Ltd, are pleased to offer to you the many benefits of being greener by living tree free with an expanding line of bamboo-based products.

Assassination Conspiracy Trial | The Martin Luther King Jr. Center for Nonviolent Social Change

Assassination Conspiracy Trial

ABOUT THE TRIAL

After four weeks of testimony and over 70 witnesses in a civil trial in Memphis, Tennessee, twelve jurors reached a unanimous verdict on December 8, 1999 after about an hour of deliberations that Dr. Martin Luther King, Jr. was assassinated as a result of a conspiracy. In a press statement held the following day in Atlanta, Mrs. Coretta Scott King welcomed the verdict, saying , “There is abundant evidence of a major high level conspiracy in the assassination of my husband, Martin Luther King, Jr. And the civil court’s unanimous verdict has validated our belief. I wholeheartedly applaud the verdict of the jury and I feel that justice has been well served in their deliberations. This verdict is not only a great victory for my family, but also a great victory for America. It is a great victory for truth itself. It is important to know that this was a SWIFT verdict, delivered after about an hour of jury deliberation. The jury was clearly convinced by the extensive evidence that was presented during the trial that, in addition to Mr. Jowers, the conspiracy of the Mafia, local, state and federal government agencies, were deeply involved in the assassination of my husband. The jury also affirmed overwhelming evidence that identified someone else, not James Earl Ray, as the shooter, and that Mr. Ray was set up to take the blame. I want to make it clear that my family has no interest in retribution. Instead, our sole concern has been that the full truth of the assassination has been revealed and adjudicated in a court of law… My husband once said, “The moral arc of the universe is long, but it bends toward justice.” To-day, almost 32 years after my husband and the father of my four children was assassinated, I feel that the jury’s verdict clearly affirms this principle. With this faith, we can begin the 21st century and the new millennium with a new spirit of hope and healing.”

KING FAMILY STATEMENT ON MEDIA REQUESTS REGARDING THE MEMPHIS VERDICT

The King family stands firmly behind the civil trial verdict reached by twelve jurors in the Memphis, Tennessee courtroom on December 8, 1999.

An excerpt from remarks made by Mr. Dexter Scott King, Chairman, President, and CEO of The King Center, during the December 9, 1999 press conference regarding the verdict that may be used in support of this family decision:

“We can say that because of the evidence and information obtained in Memphis we believe that this case is over. This is a period in the chapter. We constantly hear reports, which trouble me, that this verdict creates more questions than answers. That is totally false. Anyone who sat in on almost four weeks of testimony, with over seventy witnesses, credible witnesses I might add, from several judges to other very credible witnesses, would know that the truth is here.”

“The question now is, “What will you do with that?” We as a family have done our part. We have carried this mantle for as long as we can carry it. We know what happened. It is on public record. The transcripts will be available; we will make them available on the Web at some point. Any serious researcher who wants to know what happened can find out.”

The King family feels that the jury’s verdict, the transcripts of the conspiracy trial, and the transcripts of the King family’s press conference following the trial — all of which can be found on The King Center’s website — include everything that that family members have to say about the assassination.

Therefore, the King family shares the conviction that there is nothing more to add to their comments on record and will respectfully decline all further requests for comment.
