HONG KONG and LOS ANGELES, Aug. 6, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Newchic, an online fashion platform composed of brands that celebrate diversity, inclusion, and creativity, today announced that it will extend the deadline of its 2022 #ArtYourPossibility Contest by nine calendar days to August 19, 2022 (PST). The original deadline was August 10, 2022 (PST).

Newchic postponed the deadline to ensure that no contestant loses their chance to compete in the contest for circumstances beyond their control. Contestants must submit portfolios that consist of six original illustrations that relate to one (or two) of the four contest themes as well as a description of the story and creative process behind the designs. (Contestants are allowed to submit work for up to two themes maximum.)

"At Newchic, one of our principal goals is to equip emerging designers with the resources to express their unique creativity," said Mr. Zou, President of Newchic. "We are excited to showcase this talent on a global scale."

The 2022 #ArtYourPossibility Contest seeks to uplift rising fashion creatives around the world by giving them a platform to tell their unique stories and advocate for the causes they care about. The contest is centered around four themes that are based on the four CSR-conscious fashion brands acting as co-hosts for the competition: Selfsow, Koyye, Mensclo, and Charmkpr.

Each of these four brands focuses on a specific social mission in addition to supporting Newchic's broader goal of promoting uniqueness, expression, and multi-creativity. Selfsow celebrates women's awareness and appreciation of their own beauty -- and their power to define their beauty through self-expression. Koyye creates designs that reflect the dauntlessness of young street-culture enthusiasts who are constantly pushing the boundaries of color and creativity to make a difference in the world. Mensclo emphasizes a "less is more" approach to design, utilizing timeless, minimal styles that can adapt to any wardrobe. Finally, Charmkpr draws on the influence of global heritages and histories on men's fashion, highlighting the beauty of our united planet.

Newchic has also adjusted other key contest dates to reflect the new deadline. After submissions close on August 19, 2022 (PST), the public will have the chance to vote for their favorite submissions. Newchic will select the top eight finalists based on this vote and coordinate 1:1 interviews with the designers, which will take place over Zoom the weekend of August 20, 2022 (PST). Then, on the weekend of August 27, 2022 (PST), Newchic will host an Instagram Live where judges will review the finalists' designs in real-time and announce the top four winners based on a scoring system. The top four winners will each receive a cash prize of 1,500 USD.

SAN DIEGO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- REVA Medical, LLC. ("REVA" or the "Company"), a leader in bioresorbable polymer technologies for vascular applications, is pleased to announce the closing of a $45 million Series B equity financing. This funding was led by a global strategic investor with deep experience in medical devices, as well as BioStar Capital, and existing investors.

Proceeds from the financing will be used to fund the Company's ongoing operating, clinical and capital needs, including the clinical program for its MOTIV(®) Peripheral Vascular Bioresorbable Scaffold. "We are very pleased to announce the close of this financing," said REVA's President and Chief Executive Offer, Jeffrey Anderson. "The funding we have secured will allow REVA to move forward with our pivotal clinical trial to support FDA approval of our MOTIV(®) peripheral vascular scaffold as well as to obtain FDA clearance of our TyroSphere(®) bioresorbable embolic bead technology."

REVA's MOTIV(® )device represents a unique breakthrough technology for the treatment of patients suffering from below-the-knee peripheral vascular disease. MOTIV(® )is a drug-eluting bioresorbable peripheral vascular scaffold made from REVA's proprietary Tyrocore(® )polymer that is designed to dissolve over time, leaving the artery free of a permanent implant and thereby allowing the artery to return to its natural movement or "vasomotion." Due to their temporary nature, bioresorbable stents are commonly referred to as scaffolds. MOTIV(®)'s polymer properties also enable complete x-ray visibility of the scaffold when placed in the artery, an attribute unique to REVA among bioresorbable scaffolds. REVA believes that this distinct feature will offer a procedural advantage, as x-ray visibility helps confirm proper placement of the scaffold and is a tool that physicians routinely rely upon when implanting metal stents. Louis A Cannon, MD Founder and Senior Managing Partner of BioStar Capital notes that "200 million patients world-wide are affected by severe arterial disease of the legs. We believe the REVA absorbable scaffold has the potential to reduce limb amputations, and possibly save lives."

In addition to the MOTIV(®) scaffold, REVA is in the final development stages for their TyroSphere(®) embolic bead platform. TyroSphere(®) beads are bioresorbable embolic microspheres designed to treat hypervascular tumors. TyroSphere(®) beads uniquely offer both the advantage of safe degradation/resorption and the option of being visible under standard x-ray to aid in precise delivery to the targeted tumor.

SVB Securities acted as financial advisor to REVA Medical on this transaction.

About REVA Medical REVA Medical is a medical device company focused on the development and commercialization of bioresorbable polymer technologies for vascular applications. The Company's products include MOTIV bioresorbable scaffolds for the treatment of peripheral artery disease, Fantom and Fantom Encore bioresorbable vascular scaffolds for the treatment of coronary artery disease, and TyroSphere embolic beads.

The article was written by members of the Vision Impact Institute, which recently joined the Foundation. It explores the case for advocacy in advancing good vision globally, while making a clear connection to many of the UN Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs). It builds on a critical review of bibliography and proposes new perspectives for vision advocacy to achieve significant policy change.

"Evidence-based advocacy is essential to make good vision a global priority," says Eva Lazuka-Nicoulaud, the article's lead author and Head, Advocacy & Partnerships, Europe/Africa, at the Foundation. "In this article, we develop the connection between good vision and more than half of the SDGs."

"With 1 in 3 people unable to see clearly, we must collectively advocate for solutions to address this issue," says Prof. Kovin Naidoo, Global Head, Advocacy and Partnerships, OneSight EssilorLuxottica Foundation. "Aligning with the UN Resolution on Vision: Vision for Everyone: accelerating action to achieve the Sustainable Development Goals, we define a new outlook for the framework and key pillars of advocacy to scale up success by 2030.

Anthony Di Iorio Opens Whitelist for New Global Project to Empower a User-Controlled Internet; Project to Be Unveiled November 3

Ethereum, Decentral, & Jaxx Liberty Founder also announces $1M Foundation for Canadian Leaders & Problem Solvers

TORONTO, Aug. 9, 2022 /PRNewswire/ -- Ethereum, Decentral, & Jaxx Liberty Founder Anthony Di Iorio today announced the whitelist opening for Andiami: The Quest for Liberty, an upcoming global tech project designed to add value to and complement today's leading decentralized network projects like Bitcoin and Ethereum. The announcement was made during Di Iorio's opening keynote speech at Futurist Conference, Canada's largest crypto & blockchain event.

With ten years of design, vision, and building, Andiami will address crypto's most pressing issues, including the increasing centralization of decentralized networks and the prevalent use of Web2 business models in the pursuit of Web3, a user-controlled internet. Andiami will accomplish its goals by bringing together trusted leadership, aligned stakeholder incentives, and new custom hardware and software. This will all be delivered on scalable infrastructure, a new node-sharing protocol, a unique type of mining, and next-generation token economics.

"The future can't be built using old models," says Anthony Di Iorio. "Similarly, you can't build a user-controlled internet while relying on institutional trust anywhere in between an individual and a protocol. Andiami is the culmination of a mission I started ten years ago to empower people with the tools they need to be in control of their digital lives: their money, communication, and identity."

Andiami: The Quest for Liberty is planned to be unveiled November 3, 2022--ten years to the day that Di Iorio held the first-ever Bitcoin meetup in Toronto where he met Vitalik Buterin. The unveiling will take place in front of an audience of thousands at a soon-to-be announced iconic Canadian concert venue in Toronto and will also be live streamed globally.

The Andiami whitelist is now open at

Also at the Futurist conference today, Di Iorio announced the creation of a Canadian foundation dedicated to amplifying the next generation of leaders and problem solvers to help solve the world's most pressing challenges. Di Iorio is personally donating $1 million to the foundation, which will also be supported by proceeds from the global project.

"Over the years, I've developed problem solving frameworks that put the pieces together to create win-win-win solutions. The frameworks have been formalized, and it's my mission to bring the tools forward that will inspire the next generation of problem solvers and leaders," says Di Iorio.

Di Iorio is an Ethereum founder and Founder and CEO of Decentral Inc. The original birthplace of Ethereum, Decentral is a Canadian company that builds tools at the core of the next internet. This includes Jaxx Liberty, software that has empowered millions of people with the tools they need to control their digital assets.
