Prospector, a technology company, brings revolutionary access to the mining industry by offering a new search platform for free

New site features dynamic search of technical reports and access to information on sustainability

FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., Oct. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Prospector, a search engine for the mining industry, has launched a new website that provides a more advanced and free search capability for its revolutionary platform, complete with more information and advanced ability to search through a percentage of the thousands of mining technical (43-101) reports accessible within their portal. The Company, a wholly-owned subsidiary of mining investment company Analog Gold, believes this new site provides a glimpse into what subscribers can find in the Prospector Portal.

Prospector is an AI-enabled technology platform built to modernize the way investors and researchers search for and access information about mining. Prospector draws data from various public exchanges such as TMX Datalinx, which operates the Toronto Stock Exchange and represents nearly 50% of publicly traded mining projects globally.

The new website features an advanced, multi-reference search that allows the user to dynamically search through 43-101′s. For full access to report summaries and insights powered by Artificial Intelligence, users can start a free trial to “unlock” the full capabilities of the portal. On both its new front end site and the Portal itself, users can search by mineral type, country, resource estimate, company, and more!

In addition to the new dynamic search function, there is new content on Prospector’s presence in the media, including a preview to the upcoming ‘On The Rocks’ podcast series hosted by Prospector founder, Emily King. There is also a new sustainability-focused section on how Prospector can help users identify environmental, social, and governance (ESG) information about mining projects. Offering a unique user experience that simultaneously brings incredible ease and extraordinary depth, the new website promises to help Prospector continue to bring new investors into the

Out of the vast number of life forms on the planet, it is estimated that fewer than 25% have been characterized, perhaps even fewer than 0.01%. Among this list, microscopic organisms are especially poorly represented: While up to 80% of all eukaryotes are protists (i.e., single-celled eukaryotes), these account for only 3% of described eukaryotic species.

This striking gap between what is known and what isn’t greatly limits the understanding of the evolution of taxonomic groups and features. In an article in Genome Biology and Evolution titled “Gene similarity networks unveil a potential novel unicellular group closely related to animals from the Tara Oceans expedition,” researchers at the Institut de Biologia Evolutiva in Spain and the Institut de Systématique, Évolution, Biodiversité in France shed light on the uncharacterized microbial biodiversity of the world’s oceans and reveal how the discovery of new lineages may aid in addressing unanswered evolutionary questions.

Considerable effort has focused on understanding the evolutionary processes that gave rise to multicellular animals from our unicellular ancestors. For this, researchers have looked to the closest living relatives of animals, a group of protists known as the Holozoa, which includes the Choanoflagellatea, Filasterea, and Teretosporea (Ichthyosporea and Corallochytrea). Previous sampling has suggested that many members of this clade remained uncharacterized, providing an incomplete picture that limits our understanding of the origin of multicellularity. Iñaki Ruiz-Trillo, an ICREA research professor at the Institut de Biologia Evolutiva, and colleagues sought to remedy this by gaining a better understanding of the real diversity of protists closely related to animals.

GREENBELT, Md., Oct. 5, 2020

GREENBELT, Md., Oct. 5, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — Technologies developed at NASA have helped locate more than 46,000 people through Cospas-Sarsat, an international cooperative system for search and rescue. Furthering the impact of the program, the Strategic Partnerships Office at NASA’s Goddard Space Flight Center in Greenbelt, Maryland, has licensed a second-generation search-and-rescue technology to a company named Concentric Real Time LLC, based in Ellicott City, Maryland.

“NASA’s search and rescue technologies have saved the lives of thousands of people,” said Eric McGill, a senior technology manager with Goddard’s Strategic Partnerships Office. “By licensing this receiver technology, we’re expanding the reach of NASA’s lifesaving innovations.”

NASA’s Search and Rescue (SAR) Office, based at Goddard, generates search and rescue technologies for the Cospas-Sarsat community, which uses satellites to provide location data to authorities searching for people who are lost or otherwise in need of rescue. Individuals can carry personal locator beacons; ships, pleasure craft, and aircraft can store beacons on board in case of emergency, which Cospas-Sarsat uses to determine their position.

The new receiver improves on the previous generation of technologies, providing more accurate location data than older systems. Reese Bovard, the president of Concentric Real Time, built the new receiver that his company is licensing. Currently a contractor for NASA’s SAR Office, Bovard has worked at Goddard for 13 years as an engineer. The receiver he developed pairs with a new, higher-resolution signal that produces highly accurate location results.

Bovard said the receiver technology is an important building block for the new search-and-rescue system that NASA’s SAR Office has developed. Though civil search and rescue is the office’s primary mission, the group’s technologies have

Blank-check firm ION begins search for Israeli tech unicorn

Direct Listings Don’t Do Well, Says Renaissance Capital’s Smith



By Krystal Hu

(Reuters) – ION Acquisition Corp 1 made its debut on the New York Stock Exchange on Friday after raising $225 million in an initial public offering (IPO), the only current blank-check acquisition company focusing on the Middle East region.

The IPO, which was larger than ION had originally planned, is the latest in a string of listings by special purpose acquisition companies (SPACs), with almost $50 billion raised so far in the United States.

ION shares closed up 4.7% at $10.47.

A SPAC uses capital raised through an initial public offering to buy a private company, usually within two years.

With a specific geography and industry focus, ION Chief Executive Gilad Shany said he wants to target Israeli tech companies at over $1 billion valuation and bridge the gap between local entrepreneurs and the U.S. capital market.

Other regional focus SPACs recently launched include Bridgetown Holdings Ltd backed by billionaires Peter Thiel and Richard Li, which is hunting for technology, finances and media companies in Southeast Asia.

“The IPO process has become cumbersome, expensive and complicated for some of these companies when they’re still relatively new,” Shany said in an interview.

“We believe SPAC will become even more attractive because it gives certainty of cash and certain pricing.”

Shany, a native of Israel and founder of tech-focused ION Crossover Partners venture fund, said his SPAC can stand out in competition with U.S. equivalents in a pandemic era. His previous investments include freelancer marketplace Fiverr International Ltd and telemedicine firm American Well Corp , which have both gone public in New York.

“Perceived being here, being local and working with companies for many
