KUALA LUMPUR, Malaysia, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Torum, the first DeFi and NFT-infused social media platform, is proud to announce that it has completed its first public sale event - Initial Staking NFT Offering (ISNO). Launched at 9 p.m. of May 11th 2021, the crowdsale event is the first ISNO that is held in the crypto industry, featuring a total of 363 limited edition NFTs of 5 different tiers. Finished In Less Than 20 Minutes As soon as the NFTs were available for grab, all 363 units of them were completely sold off to cryptocurrency enthusiasts from every corner of the world in under 20 minutes, highlighting a strong token demand and project support from the community. The rarest Tier 5 NFTs were sold off in the first 30 seconds, followed by Tier 4 NFTs (2 minutes), Tier 3 (7 minutes), Tier 1 (14 minutes) and Tier 2 (18 minutes). A total of 1,750,000 XTM, the native token of Torum ecosystem, is issued and locked inside the 363 ISNO NFTs, meaning the value of the NFTs will be constantly backed by XTM, ensuring that that the 363 NFTs have a solid price foundation. The World's First and Only ISNO Event Unique from the conventional Initial NFT Offering, every NFT issued under the ISNO event comes with a permanent staking multiplier and a fixed amount of native token locked inside it. The staking benefit ranges from 1.05x to 1.25x that multiplies the holders' liquidity provider stakes on a dedicated DeFi platform. As the first project to introduce the new NFT funding event, the ISNO NFTs of Torum can be staked on its DeFi platform, Torum Finance to unleash their staking multiplier effects. Alternatively, the ISNO NFTs can be burned to release the native token locked inside it. In other words, most NFT holders will hold onto the virtual artworks to enjoy the staking multiplier benefit, reducing the selling pressure of ISNO participants during the token generation event. Torum believes that the successful launch of the first ISNO event will lead others to follow its step, launching more ISNO events in the future. Torum also hopes that projects can continue to think out of the box and introduce more crypto innovations to the crypto space, just like how Torum combines the elements of DeFi, NFT and public sale into ISNO.

HONG KONG, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- MobiusTrend, the fintech market research organization, recently released a research report "WIMI Uses AI Vision Combined with the Black Technology of Holographic Intelligent Driving, Revolutionizes the Field of Unmanned Driving". Is the Internet of Vehicles the next frontier? Maybe it is, maybe not. But we can at least see that both giants and start-ups are pouring into this field. Meanwhile, the technologies you can think of, such as 5G, AI, holographic AR, distributed computing, are also accumulating energy in this field. What should a smart car look like? In the Hollywood movie "Black Panther", Shuri scans a real car and holographically projects a new car for her own driving. This special scanning device is similar to an upgraded version of the remote controller. She can control the car and see the surroundings while driving. Some of the functions in the movie can be realized in reality. However, functions like "scanning and holographically projecting a drivable car" are obviously too sci-fi for contemporary technology. "Humans should get out of driving." In 1940, Norman Bell Gates, an industrial interior designer called the "Da Vinci of the 20th Century" by the New York Times, made such an idea that was considered absurd at the time. The Internet of Things defined by the Internet of Everything itself determines the diversity and fragmentation of its scenarios, and AIoT under the integration of artificial intelligence faces more challenges, such as the demand has not yet been finalized, and the product functions and performance continue to change; during the market cultivation period, the volume of a single category is small, and it is difficult to dilute the R&D cost; because the different scenarios have different AI algorithms, each of them does things in its own way. Holographic imaging without the medium is a real image display technology in the air based on light field reconstruction. This new interactive display technology integrates decoration and practicality. It is completely transparent when there is no image and gives users a brand-new interactive experience. It has become one of the most fashionable product display and marketing methods today. For example, in the immersive light field video solution released by Google this year, the signal is first captured from a large number of camera arrays, and the light field performance of the displayed content is created through a large neural network, and then stored. And then, a spherical structure with a diameter of 92 cm and 46 cameras is used to capture the surrounding scene from different angles, and the multi-directional perspectives are combined into one perspective, which presents a more stereoscopic image space, and the user can see images with dynamic effects from different angles. With the advent of the 5G era, the transmission quality of the holographic projection technology picture is better guaranteed due to the ultra-large bandwidth. The millisecond delay, the MEC edge computing, and the unique slicing technology make the display of voice, expression, and action more natural and vivid. WIMI's light field simulation imaging system uses the principle of optical illusion to synthesize the images (people and objects) shot by camera technology in the movie with the main model landscape in the scenery box. WIMI Hologram Cloud focuses on holographic cloud services, mainly in vehicle-mounted AR holographic HUD, 3D holographic pulse LiDAR, head-mounted light field holographic equipment, holographic semiconductor, holographic cloud software, holographic car navigation, and other professional fields, covering multiple links of AR technology, including holographic vehicle-mounted AR technology, 3D holographic pulse LiDAR technology, holographic vision semiconductor technology, holographic software development, holographic AR advertising technology, holographic AR entertainment technology, holographic ARSDK payment, interactive holographic communication, and so on. It is a holographic cloud comprehensive technical solution provider. As the development trend of future display technology, holographic technology has been widely regarded as a revolutionary technology since its birth. Compared with traditional display methods, holographic technology allows users to feel the real effect of floating on the screen from all angles. With the interactive function in the air, it is a revolutionary experience visually and tactilely. Holography is based on digital information technology. WIMI combines with innovative media presentation methods, such as network, holographic IP development, holographic AR game/application development, production, digital film, smartphone, holographic display, AR/virtual reality glasses, holographic theater, air imaging, etc. At the same time, pan-entertainment is in the Internet era, and the phenomenon of connection and integration of cultural products is obvious. Games, literature, animation, film and television, music, and drama no longer develop in isolation, but can collaborate to build a new industry and market ecology. AR holographic technology is a new stage of visual communication design. Its characteristics of unlimited information resources, good interactivity, widespread, high speed and efficiency, entertainment needs, and user stickiness bring huge market development space. As a new means of visual communication, AR holography fully meets the development needs of the pan-entertainment era with rich content, diverse forms of expression, and infectious and shocking performance effects. WIMI utilizes its strong technical capabilities and infrastructure to provide excellent products and services. WIMI has won the bid for China Mobile and the second phase of the holographic remote interaction of the media cloud platform, and it is redefining China Mobile's communication method through "5G + holographic remote". Recently, with the rapid development of the electronic automobile industry, WIMI's in-vehicle solutions have also reached cooperation with Toyota's electronic company to meet the needs of automotive holographic applications. Besides, the core business of WIMI is holographic AR technology for software engineering, media manufacturing services, cloud, and big data. WIMI also seems to be catching up closely in the field of lidar. Since the announcement of the patent of the 3D holographic pulse laser processing device for optical holography, many industry application customers have shown strong market demand. Therefore, it is reported that WIMI launches AR-HUD equipment for the automotive field and has added a new automotive laser radar product "WiMi HoloPulse LiDAR" to further expand the company's holographic product portfolio matrix. Since the birth of automobiles, with the development of smart and connected technologies, automobiles have been upgraded from traditional vehicles to smart sports terminals. The form of human-vehicle interaction, from the cold central control console to the Internet of Vehicles, to the evolution of media-free and image spatialization in the 5G era, is a disruptive change and a historic leap. The new aerial holographic imaging "Species" will also change the industry and our lives. WIMI owns the core patents of smart holograms and the unique 4654 holographic AR copyright IP, which has exclusive advantages in possession. The development of science and technology is always changing with each passing day. Ten years ago, we could not imagine that the automobile field is so convenient, and the functions of automobile science and technology are so rich and diverse. Therefore, the future is always worth looking forward to! About MobiusTrend MobiusTrend Group is a leading market research organization in Hong Kong.

(Nasdaq:LIXT) is a clinical-stage pharmaceutical company dedicated to discovering drugs for more effective treatments for many forms of cancer and other serious common diseases. A major driver of cancer is defects in the switches that turn the biochemical pathways in cells on and off. Most cancer research over the past 30 years has focused on the “on” switches because the “off” switches, especially the master “off” switch protein phosphatase (PP2A), were believed to cause intolerable toxicity in patients. Lixte has achieved a breakthrough with its novel, first-in-class lead compound, PP2A inhibitor LB-100, by demonstrating that it is readily tolerated in cancer patients at doses associated with anti-cancer activity. This innovative approach encourages cancer cells, damaged by chemo or other cancer therapies, to continue to replicate before repairing the damage, leading to the more efficient death and elimination of those cells from the body. Lixte has partnered with top medical institutions and leading academic research centers to advance the clinical development of its compounds. The LB-100 compound, of which there are no competitors known to Lixte, is being tested in three clinical cancer treatment studies with others in planning. lixte.com Forward-Looking Statements This announcement contains certain forward-looking statements within the meaning of Section 27A of the Securities Act of 1933, and Section 21E of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934.

Tyton Partners release “School Disrupted,” a three-part series investigating the scale and scope of alternative education models and the future state of K-12 in the wake of COVID-19BOSTON, May 12, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Parent agency increased dramatically as the COVID-19 pandemic swept across the country during the last year. Without notice, households were forced to change behavior, schools to transform learning models, and parents and caregivers to adjust the role they play in their children’s education, according to the first in a three-part investigative series titled “School Disrupted,” which examines how households grappled with the impact of COVID-19 on K-12 learning models. The longitudinal survey of 3,000 parents across the country was conducted by Tyton Partners in Fall 2020, with support from the Walton Family Foundation. “The pandemic has drastically accelerated the scale and scope of alternative learning models in the K-12 ecosystem, such as learning pods, but awareness, access, and affordability remain big issues,” said Tanya Rosbash, Director at Tyton Partners. Key takeaways from the first phase of the survey include: Parents and caregivers took greater responsibility for school decision-making. More than 15 percent switched their child’s school for the 2020-21 academic year, which is estimated to be 2.5 times higher than behavior pre-pandemic.School enrollments shifted with public and private schools experiencing an estimated decrease of 2.6 million in student enrollment; charter schools, homeschooling, learning pods and microschools all realized net increases.The pandemic catalyzed growth of supplemental learning pods – defined as cohorts of students gathering in a small group – with adult supervision and outside the framework of their traditional physical or virtual classroom – to learn, explore, and socialize.Households spent an estimated $20 billion more on an annualized basis on education-related activities, primarily stemming from the emergence of supplemental learning pods.Five activities independently correlated with a parent’s positive perception of their child’s learning experience during COVID-19.Limited awareness of, and access to, alternative and emerging learning models significantly hindered parent agency, particularly for parents at lower-income levels. “We hope our research will shine light on the impact of the pandemic on K-12 education, and what can be done to mitigate inequities resulting from the events of this past year, specifically how the K-12 ecosystem can continue to evolve to better serve all students,” noted Adam Newman, Tyton Partners Co-founder and Managing Partner.
