PCI is applied to three distinct anticancer paradigms: fimaChem (enhancement of chemotherapeutics for localised treatment of cancer), fimaVacc (T-cell induction technology for therapeutic vaccination), and fimaNAc (nucleic acid therapeutics delivery). Photochemical internalisation induces triggered endosomal release that is used to unlock the true potential of a wide array of therapeutic modalities. The company’s lead programme fimaChem consists of a pivotal study in bile duct cancer, an orphan indication with a high unmet need and without approved products. fimaVacc applies a unique mode of action to enhance the essential cytotoxic effect of therapeutic cancer vaccines, which works in synergy with several other state-of-the-art vaccination technologies. fimaNAc utilises the endosomal release to provide intracellular delivery of nucleic acids, such as mRNA and RNAi therapeutics, thereby addressing one of the major bottlenecks facing this emerging and promising field.

Picture 1 More than 300 PBR events are held each year across the United States, where logos of sponsor entities are conspicuously displayed on arena panels, bucking chutes, participants’ attire, and digital media displays. Starting in 2021, the TAAT™ logo and brand messaging will be placed among existing PBR sponsors which include several well-known consumer brand names. Image Source: PBR Website NOT FOR DISTRIBUTION TO UNITED STATES NEWSWIRE SERVICES OR FOR DISSEMINATION IN THE UNITED STATES As live attendance of sporting events begins to resume in 2021, the Company has entered into an agreement in which TAAT™ will sponsor PBR bull riding events in the United States. With more than three million attendees per year and millions of viewers of PBR events broadcast globally, the Company anticipates that this sponsorship can be an integral part of its marketing strategy to cultivate awareness among smokers aged 21+. PBR sponsorships have proven to be extremely effective, with 54% of PBR fans being more likely to recognize a sponsor brand than the average U.S. adult, and 12% of fans having made a purchase from a company specifically because it was a PBR sponsor. LAS VEGAS and VANCOUVER, British Columbia, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- TAAT™ LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS LTD. (CSE: TAAT) (OTCQB: TOBAF) (FRANKFURT: 2TP2) (the “Company” or “TAAT™”) is pleased to announce that it has finalized a sponsorship agreement with Professional Bull Riders, LLC (“PBR”) in which the TAAT™ logo and related messaging will be displayed among other PBR sponsor entities at live bull riding circuit events in the United States starting in 2021, which are also broadcast globally through various media channels. PBR hosts over 300 events each year including Unleash the Beast, which is televised nationally on U.S. channels, as well as several networks around the world in 50 nations and territories1. Major sponsors of PBR events include energy drink brand Monster, iconic workwear label Wrangler, and Caterpillar, the world’s largest construction equipment manufacturer2. The Company’s sponsorship agreement with PBR was executed on Tuesday, April 13, 2021 for the remaining duration of the 2021 season as well as the total duration of the 2022 and 2023 seasons (up to and including the final sponsored event performance of 2023), and provides for several sponsorship benefits which include but are not limited to the following (subject to availability and restrictions at each venue, as well as local regulations for each venue): Exclusivity in the Combustible Smoke Products categoryArena marketing placements (e.g., digital signage, in-arena commercials, concourse display)In-arena sweepstakes promotion (TAAT™ Cowboy Cool Sweepstakes) once per contract yearTAAT™ branded “smoke zone”, a designated smoking section at select event venuesIn-market sponsorships (e.g., Cowboy Cool Tailgate, PBR Afterparty)Official partnership with PBR’s PBRewards program, with in-arena and digital supportSocial media and digital elements (e.g., sponsorship of original content episodes by PBR, banner ads on the PBR.com website) Sponsorship of PBR has provided substantial value for many lifestyle-driven brand names that desire visibility among the highly engaged audience of PBR events. For instance, 54% of PBR fans were more likely to recognize a sponsor than the average adult in the United States, and 12% of fans made a purchase from a company specifically because it was a PBR sponsor3. Further substantiating the value of PBR sponsorships in the tobacco industry, when the parent company of chewing tobacco brand Copenhagen was limited to one sponsorship per year in the United States, PBR was the firm’s sponsorship of choice in 20084. A photo accompanying this announcement is available at https://www.globenewswire.com/NewsRoom/AttachmentNg/1d4759e7-d9c5-40b7-a51a-f6d4173d600c Readers using news aggregation services may be unable to view the media above. Please access SEDAR or the Investor Relations section of the Company’s website for a version of this press release containing all published media. “We are thrilled to enter into this sponsorship agreement with PBR,” said TAAT™ Chief Executive Officer Setti Coscarella. “The strong record of PBR’s sponsorship renewal speaks to its success in delivering on the brand awareness metrics sought by its sponsors. We believe that being a sponsor of PBR can provide excellent visibility for our brand among smokers aged 21+ who follow the league and its events, and we look forward to seeing how this can help us build upon our existing brand equity as we begin efforts to scale our product rollout in the United States.” Billed as “America’s original extreme sport1”, bull riding became popular in the southwestern United States during the mid-1800s as an adaptation of ranch and horsemanship skill competitions held throughout Mexico starting in the 16th century5. PBR was formed in 1992 by an entrepreneurial group of 20 bull riders and today attracts an annual total of more than three million fans in attendance of its live events. Over 500 bull riders from the United States, Canada, Mexico, Brazil, and Australia currently hold PBR memberships and participate in events which lead to the annual PBR World Finals, where more than USD $10 million in prize money is at stake each year1. The 2021 PBR World Finals is to be held at the T-Mobile Arena near the Las Vegas strip from November 3 through November 7, where the TAAT™ brand will be made visible to a nightly live audience of up to 20,000 fans6. TAAT™ Chief Revenue Officer Tim Corkum commented, “Introducing a new brand in the cigarette category begins with understanding who the target consumer is and what needs they have that aren’t being met by other brands. The typical consumer journey for any product begins with brand awareness, which needs to be accomplished through consistent and repeated exposure to the TAAT™ brand in places to which their attention is regularly drawn. Our current digital advertising efforts provide us a relatively low-cost way to reach smokers aged 21+ through channels on which they spend much of their time learning about new products. We have not limited ourselves to online promotion, as the TAAT™ brand has been advertised on gas pump video display screens and in-store point of sale materials. We have also instituted retailer education programs where the majority of cigarettes are sold, and as a result the TAAT™ brand is presented to smokers aged 21+ repeatedly during their purchase decision moments that happen several times per week. This PBR sponsorship now evolves our ability to incorporate more lifestyle elements that can connect the TAAT™ brand more intimately with our consumer base and expose our brand to even more smokers who will associate TAAT™ as a brand which complements their sporting passion. More important than simply branding and signage, TAAT™ will be able to incorporate experiential marketing, product trials, and user interaction that will allow us to directly reinforce the TAAT™ message with a large fan base of smokers aged 21+ in several markets across the United States in which PBR events are held annually.”Sources 1 - https://pbr.com/about/ 2 - https://pbr.com/sponsors/ 3 - https://www.forbes.com/sites/jasonbelzer/2016/01/21/professional-bull-riders-pbr-has-created-the-most-authentic-sponsorship-platform-in-sports/?sh=125cfa6c74cc 4 - https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC2791245/ 5 - https://www.americancowboy.com/people/history-bull-riding 6 - https://www.t-mobilearena.com/arena-information/quick-facts On behalf of the Board of Directors of the Company, TAAT™ LIFESTYLE & WELLNESS LTD. “Setti Coscarella” Setti Coscarella, CEO and Director For further information, please contact: TAAT™ Investor Relations1-833-TAAT-USA (1-833-822-8872)email@example.com THE CANADIAN SECURITIES EXCHANGE (“CSE”) HAS NOT REVIEWED AND DOES NOT ACCEPT RESPONSIBILITY FOR THE ACCURACY OR ADEQUACY OF THIS RELEASE, NOR HAS OR DOES THE CSE’S REGULATION SERVICES PROVIDER.

TORONTO, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- For pure gambling thrill, it’s hard to beat a good slot machine. The spinning wheels, the flashing lights — and best of all, the massive payouts. It’s no wonder, then, that slot machines remain one of the most popular ways for Canadians to blow off some steam — and thanks to the convenience of the internet, many gamblers are looking to play online. Below, we’ve assembled a list of the best slot sites in Canada today. If you’re looking for fun games you can trust, these sites are the best place to start. First Look Best overall: Spin CasinoBest progressive slots: Jackpot CityBest software providers: CasinonicLargest selection: LeoVegasBest daily tournaments: PlayOJOBest banking options: Sun VegasBest security: Royal PandaBest user experience: Ruby FortuneBest daily jackpot: 888 CasinoBest bonuses: CasinoLab The Best Slot Sites in Canada for 2021 1. Spin Casino — Best Overall Pros Large game selectionSlots operated by top-notch providersOptimized for mobile useWide variety of banking options Cons Difficult to earn bonuses Spin Casino offers a variety of games, including blackjack, roulette, video poker, and more. They’re known for their slots, though, as they have an excellent selection featuring some of the top games. The bulk of their games are operated by Microgaming and Evolution Gaming, two of the most respected providers in the business. That ensures their slots are both fair and fun, with plenty of replay value. The site is optimized for use on mobile, so you can play it on your phone or tablet without sacrificing playability. They support a wide variety of currencies and banking options, ensuring players can get their money on and off quickly and safely. Their bonus structure is a bit stingy and difficult to earn, but they do offer several bonus options for new players. 2. Jackpot City — Best Progressive Slots Pros Very large progressive jackpotsCan get up to $1900 in deposit bonusesOffers lots of themed slotsAverage RTP is 96% Cons Massive wagering requirement to earn bonuses Jackpot City is popular due to its generous deposit bonuses, but it’s the sky-high progressive slots that usually keep customers coming back. Their max jackpot can reach $5 million, which is certainly one of the best in the business. You can get as much as $1900 in deposit bonuses, but the 70x wagering requirement can be stifling. They also have a VIP program that doesn’t skimp on the loyalty points. Their average payout sits at about 96%, which is one of the better numbers in the industry. You can play one of their 430+ slot games, including many themed options like Street Fighter II: The World Warrior and progressive models like Mega Moolah. 3. Casinonic — Best Software Providers Pros Uses some of the top software providers in the industryGames offer incredible graphicsIncludes both retro and modern gamesMany games offer high RTP Cons Withdrawals over $15k paid out in installmentsWinnings on free spins capped When you play at Casinonic, you can be assured that your money is in good hands, as they use some of the top software providers in the industry. You’ll find companies like NetEnt, Microgaming, Betsoft, and more here, all of which make slots that are both enjoyable and offer high RTP. Most of their games sport incredible graphics, creating a user experience that’s as breathtaking as it is thrilling. You’ll also find retro-style games alongside more modern fare. Their banking leaves something to be desired, however. If you try to withdraw more than $15,000, they’ll pay you out in installments, and you can only win a maximum of $150 on any free spins you’re given. 4. LeoVegas — Best Selection Pros Massive selection of slotsMonthly and weekly bonuses availableDecent amount of progressive slotsCan play some games for free Cons Bonuses are a little lightNot many deposit options There’s no shortage of options of games to play at LeoVegas — in fact, they have over 2500 titles to choose from. They’re not all winners, of course, but even the pickiest players can find something that entertains them here. They offer weekly and monthly bonuses, but the variety masks the fact that many of those bonuses are on the lean side. They’re also a little light on deposit options, as they only support Visa, MasterCard, Neteller, Paysafecard, and Skrill. There’s a good selection of progressive slots here, with several capable of low-seven-figure payouts. They have free games to go with their real money options, so you can still have fun without taking any risk. It’s also a good way to learn how to play some of the more complicated games without losing money in the process. 5. PlayOJO — Best Daily Tournaments Pros New bonuses every dayFun daily tournamentsBoasts lots of table games as wellProgressive slots often reach $1 million Cons Not many classic 3-reel slotsBonuses fade quickly PlayOJO is one of the best overall casinos on the internet, and they have a fantastic selection of table games to go with their slot games. They’re also well-known for their live gaming options. Most of their slots are of the five-reel variety, so if you like the old-fashioned type you may be disappointed. They do have a few three-reels, but not many. Either way, their progressive slots often reach the million-dollar mark. PlayOJO offers a variety of “kickers,” which is their term for the daily bonuses that pop up for players to take advantage of. These kickers are fairly generous, but they only last 24 hours at a time. One of their most exciting innovations is their Reel Spinoff feature. These are daily tournaments that allow winners to earn free spins if they manage to find themselves at the top of the leaderboard. 6. Sun Vegas — Best Banking Options Pros Hundreds of slots availableDeposit bonuses can only be earned on slotsSafe and easy banking optionsNo transaction fees Cons Only offers games from one software companyDifficult to earn bonuses Sun Vegas isn’t one of the best online casinos out there, but it does have an excellent array of slots on offer. It’s no stretch to say it’s one of the best slot sites in the business. They have several hundred slots, including multiple progressive options. All of their games are provided by Playtech, a massive gaming company, so while their slots are trustworthy, the variety may be lacking. Sun Vegas definitely encourages players to spend time on the slots, as their deposit bonuses can only be spent there. The 50x wagering requirement is a bit onerous, but they allow a full month to earn it. Banking at Sun Vegas is safe and easy, as they support multiple deposit and payout options without any hidden fees attached. 7. Royal Panda — Best Security Pros Huge progressive jackpotsClean and sleek interfaceExcellent appExtremely trustworthy Cons Poor deposit bonusesLimited number of titles Royal Panda has some of the biggest jackpots you’ll find anywhere, even surpassing those at Jackpot City. As you might expect, though, they’re harder to earn. The casino offers an excellent app, but its games are just as beautiful and responsive when played on your browser. The interface is clean and sleek as well, so you’re unlikely to make a mistake at an inopportune moment. Their RNG software is some of the best in the business, ensuring their games are completely trustworthy. They also hold a license from the Malta Gaming Authority, which should give players even more peace of mind. They don’t have as many slots as some other casinos, but they allow you to play any of their titles for free. Their welcome bonus is also a bit stingy, as they only match the first £100. 8. Ruby Fortune — Best User Experience Pros High RTP %Can customize layoutExcellent mobile appGenerous VIP program Cons 3-day waiting period on withdrawals$50 minimum withdrawal limit You won’t find an endless supply of titles at Ruby Fortune, as they only offer about 350 slots, but they boast an RTP of 96.61%, ensuring that you’ll get your money’s worth from the limited selection. They also make it extremely easy to focus on your favorite titles. You can customize the gaming menu, ensuring that only the slots you like are featured and making it easier for you to find your favorites. Their banking options aren’t the best we’ve found, and they have a 96-hour waiting period before withdrawals are processed. You can only withdraw a minimum of $50 at a time, too. Their VIP program is generous and makes it easy to level up, rewarding players for their loyalty. The mobile app is top-notch as well, as it replicates everything you’ll find on the full site. 9. 888 Casino — Best Daily Jackpot Pros Fun daily jackpotsExcellent banking optionsProgressive jackpots can reach 7-figuresSite arranged to show slots with highest RTP % Cons Slow processing times on deposits and withdrawalsLimited customer service options One of the largest online casinos in the world, 888 Casino has just about everything you could want in a slots provider. They have regular progressive jackpot slots, but they also have a daily jackpot that’s guaranteed to pay out every 24 hours. Their progressive jackpots can climb into the 7-figure territory, and they even arrange them so that you can find the ones with the highest RTP %. Their banking options are fantastic, as you have 15 deposit and 6 withdrawal methods to choose from — with no fees. They also have low minimums for both. They can drag their feet on some of the processing times, though, as it can take over a week in some cases to get your money. Customer service isn’t their strong suit, as they don’t offer live chat or even a phone number. However, they are very responsive to queries submitted through their web form. 10. CasinoLab — Best Bonuses Pros Frequent generous bonusesHighly rewarding VIP programLots of banking options300 free spins as part of signup bonus Cons Charges 2% transaction feeLots of restrictions on free spin usage CasinoLab is definitely dedicated to keeping its players coming back, as they offer bonuses galore. There are multiple new player bonuses, as well as free spins and other bonuses every week. Once you reach a certain level, the VIP program also comes with a personal account manager, ensuring that your needs are taken care of by someone completely dedicated to your account. They offer a nice variety of payment methods, with generous deposit and withdrawal limits. However, they do charge a 2% transaction fee. You get 300 free spins as part of a signup bonus, but you should be aware that these spins are portioned out over 10 days, and can only be redeemed on a single game (Reactoonz). The State of Canadian Slot Sites in 2021: Our Findings In addition to taking in-depth looks at the various casinos currently servicing the Canadian market, we also surveyed the industry as a whole. We looked at some of the top-performing games, as well as where the mobile gaming industry seems to be headed in the years to come. Our findings are below. Game with the Best RTP: Mega Joker (NetEnt) Available on Casinonic Mega Joker from NetEnt has a 99+% RTP, making it the most rewarding real money game available in the Canadian market. It’s actually a progressive slot, but there aren’t any requirements for winning it, as it’s paid out at random. It pays out quite frequently, making it even more rewarding to play (although the jackpots rarely get very large). It should be noted, however, that the RTP is based on making the max bet. If you only wager a single coin, then your RTP plummets to miserable levels. Best Progressive Slot: Mega Moolah (Microgaming) Available on JackpotCity Mega Moolah is one of the most popular slot machines of all time, regardless of type. That’s partially because it manages to be complex yet easy to learn and play — but mostly, it’s a testament to the massive jackpots you can win on it. The jackpot is triggered randomly, and if you hit it, you’ll spin the “jackpot wheel.” This determines whether you earn a mini, minor, major, or mega jackpot — with the latter guaranteed to net you at least a million coins. Best of all, you can make a ton of money without risking a ton of money in return. In fact, one of the biggest jackpots ever won on this game — over €17 million — was won on a measly €.25 wager. Best Games Provider: Microgaming The makers of the aforementioned Mega Moolah, Microgaming is behind some of the most popular titles in the world today. The company has been around since 1994, and their enduring success is due to their ability to make addictive games like Break Da Bank, Lost Vegas, and King Cashalot. Microgaming excels in just about every facet of the business, including making games with interesting themes, easy-to-use interfaces, and of course, huge payouts. The Future of Online Slots in Canada The online gaming industry represents a $31 billion dollar a year business, with blackjack and poker representing the two most popular games. Slots are on the rise, though, in large part due to the innovations made by some of the top gaming providers in the industry, like Microgaming, NetEnt, Playtech, and more. The gaming industry is expected to grow by leaps and bounds in the years to come, largely due to casino-friendly laws established in each of the provinces. This growth is expected to spur further innovation on the part of the developers, ensuring that future slot games will be even more exciting and lucrative than their current counterparts. The Best Online Slots in Canada — or Anywhere Else Online slots are a booming business, and there are no shortage of sites ready to accommodate your urge to gamble. Regardless of what you’re looking for in an online casino — high RTP, massive jackpots, etc. — the sites on this list can meet your needs. They’re the best and most trusted online casinos in Canada for a reason. We can’t promise you’ll hit it big at any of them — but we can assure you that your odds are better there than anywhere else.

HAMILTON, Ontario, April 21, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reliq Health Technologies Inc. (TSXV:RHT or OTC:RQHTF or WKN:A2AJTB) (“Reliq” or the “Company”), a rapidly growing global telemedicine company that develops innovative Virtual Care solutions for the multi-billion dollar Healthcare market, today announced that it has signed contracts with two US Nephrology practices to use Reliq’s proprietary iUGO Care platform to monitor Chronic Kidney Disease (CKD) patients. “It is exciting to see the rapidly increasing demand for Reliq’s iUGO Care platform with specialists in the US,” said Dr. Lisa Crossley, CEO of Reliq Health Technologies, Inc. “As the US begins to open up thanks to a successful COVID-19 vaccine rollout, we are increasing the number of patients we onboard to our platform every week and signing new contracts with clients in a number of new market segments, including the Nephrology space.

The European Union clinched a deal in the early hours of Wednesday on a landmark law to make its climate-change goals legally binding, including a target to slash its net greenhouse gas emissions by at least 55% this decade. The deal arrives just in time for a summit of world leaders hosted by the U.S. government on Thursday and Friday, where the EU and other global powers will promote their pledges to protect the planet. The European climate law sets the framework that will guide EU climate-related regulations in the coming decades, steering it towards reaching zero net emissions by 2050 - a pathway which, if adopted globally, would limit global temperature increases to 1.5 degrees above pre-industrial levels and avoid the worst impacts of climate change.
