Pinion Newswire

The show series tentatively titled Who’s On? was rejected by all the major networks, CBS, NBC, ABC, & FOX, as well as OTT’s Mark Burnett. Show creator Richard Sutherland remained stoic about the news that the networks wouldn’t even review his treatment. It really did not surprise him. “It takes a lot of work to break into show business these days” Sutherland says, “and there’s a lot of closed doors, but when one door closes, another one opens up.” The television series conjured by Sutherland about a manager for a rock band who dreams up a reality television series – where unknown hot shot guitar players are pitted against one another in a live performance in front of a voting audience – and tries to pitch it to the big networks might have to find a prospective buyer in a more receptive foreign country, one that also has television. Russia has one hundred and forty-four million people, and they have television, so it would be a viable country to host a show like Sutherland imagines, but there’s a problem. Russia and the United States aren’t getting along too well right now. If only Russia and the U.S. were on better terms, like in the old days, Sutherland could then take his pitch to Channel One Russia without the threat of being called a Putin puppet. To this end, Sutherland says he’s willing to act as negotiator between the U.S. and Russia in a neutral country to be determined; he’ll do anything to get his pitch in front of Russian television producers who would almost certainly be more receptive than American television networks. Russia’s invasion of Ukraine was not very nice, but then Sutherland’s also sensitive to the encroachment of NATO bases in Europe as being one of the catalysts to the Russian invasion. Both parties appear to share some responsibility, and Sutherland says he’s just the man to forge a peace treaty. In fact, Sutherland says if he can get both parties to the table, he’s pretty sure he can get a deal done in three days. Who’s On? show creator Richard Sutherland based the television series he conjured on his own life as the manager of the rock bands R.U. Serious and the SeeWhyEh. The lineup of the latter cannot be disclosed for obvious reasons, but for all intents and purposes R.U. Serious appears to be George (the Anvil) Kenney on drums, Courtney Whitney on bass, Sid Huff on vocals, and George (the Hammer) MacArthur on the electric guitar. Sutherland’s first attempt at producing a music video for the rock band The Next Machine was flop, racking up only a few hundred views in its first year, but Richard Sutherland says when one door closes, another one opens up. The first single, Wild Thing, from their forthcoming double album Are You Serious R.U. Serious has been getting a lot of attention in the music industry. The video for Wild Thing is dropping any day now. Pinkfong’s Baby Shark is the most watched video in Youtube history with thirteen billion views, but the band believes it can surpass Baby Shark’s view count with their video for Wild Thing. The band puts their odds of exceeding Baby Shark view count at two to one. Sutherland says he’s looking forward to working with both President J. Biden and Prime Minister Putin, and he’s set up a hotline to take calls from Washington and Moscow. The number Richard Sutherland can be reached at is: 705-464-1316 Email: Contact Details General Management Inc. Richard Sutherland +1 705-464-1316

Landore Resources passes "very important milestone" on journey to dual listing

Landore Resources Ltd

Landore Resources Ltd (AIM:LND) CEO Claude Lemasson speaks to Thomas Warner from Proactive after the mining exploration and development firm announced it has been approved by the TSX Venture Exchange to list ordinary shares, subject to fulfilling certain pre-conditions.

He adds that one of the outstanding conditions relates to a fundraise tied to the listing and hopes to have met all the requirements by the end of October. Lemasson emphasises that floating on the TSX-V will not replace the company's London listing but add to it, and allow North American and Canadian investors easier access to the firm's shares. Post-listing, the Landore's primary focus will be on advancing the BAM Gold Project in northern Ontario. This involves a drilling campaign on the BAM deposit, leading to a revised resource estimate and a subsequent pre-feasibility study. Lemasson, who has been CEO since the summer, expresses satisfaction with the project and the team, highlighting new hires in Toronto and increased company exposure.

How COMPASS Pathways Is Leveraging AI To Revolutionize The Mental Healthcare Space

COMPASS Pathways

By Faith Ashmore, Benzinga Artificial Intelligence (AI) is rapidly penetrating a number of different sectors, including healthcare. The use of AI in mental health has opened up the possibility of new avenues of care, potentially allowing for more efficient diagnosis, treatment and patient care. Machine learning algorithms can analyze vast amounts of data – including patient medical records, genetic information and environmental factors – to potentially identify patterns and predict disorders. Clinicians can also benefit from more accurate and timely diagnoses based on objective digital signals. COMPASS Pathways (NASDAQ: CMPS) is currently developing AI-informed digital systems to assist an investigational treatment for mental health conditions, including treatment-resistant depression (TRD), anorexia nervosa and post–traumatic stress disorder (PTSD). The company is best known for its investigational psilocybin treatment and its R&D focus on mental health conditions. Its goal is to develop new and more effective treatment options for individuals with treatment-resistant depression and other difficult-to-treat mental health conditions. The company’s innovative approach has already yielded promising results, and they received FDA Breakthrough Therapy designation in the U.S. and Innovative Licensing and Access Pathway designation in the U.K. for their investigational COMP360 psilocybin treatment. In late 2021, COMPASS Pathways announced the completion of a randomized, controlled double-blind phase 2b study of COMP360 psilocybin treatment involving 233 patients with TRD in 22 sites across Europe and North America. However, the company believes that drug innovation alone is not enough to improve mental health care. In addition to COMP360 and to better support the drug, COMPASS Pathways has developed three digital tools to help support patients and therapists to ensure the best possible treatment. While these tools will be used in tandem with the COMP360 treatment, the tools were built to be scalable and revolutionize the treatment of mental health disorders. Therapist COMPanion is a web-based portal that supports therapists through all phases of patient care. Psilocybin administration is relatively new to providers so Therapist COMPanion acts as a tool for the provider to ensure that treatment is conducted in the right way. myPathfinder is a patient-facing app that provides guidance throughout COMP360. The psilocybin treatment is grouped into three phases: preparation, administration and integration. COMPASS Pathways was built on the belief that patients deserve better care, especially patients who have been underserved and felt overlooked by the system after being diagnosed as treatment-resistant. This platform is an essential component of taking better care of the patient and ensuring they have the tools to understand their treatment and psilocybin experience. However, the company’s most expansive digital tool is Chanterelle, an AI and analytics infrastructure that can be used for continuous optimization throughout treatment, as well as data collection to help expand a deeper understanding of treatment-resistant disorders. The program records sessions with the patients, with their consent, and can glean a better understanding of success rates using AI and natural language processing. Chanterelle uses the BART large language model which denotes the valence and arousal of the participant and therapist to assess the emotional tenor of the conversation and to better understand if treatment is succeeding. Chanterelle’s application could go beyond COMP360 and was designed to be scalable. The company is working to provide a more concrete and evidence-based way of measuring the success of treatment. While COMPASS Pathways is not the only mental healthcare company to bridge the gap between AI and care, the company’s ability to design platforms that can be used for a variety of disorders sets it apart from competitors like MindMed and Medtronic. Featured photo by Steve Johnson on Unsplash Company BioCOMPASS Pathways plc (Nasdaq: CMPS) is a mental health care company dedicated to accelerating patient access to evidence-based innovation in mental health. Our focus is on improving the lives of those who are suffering with mental health challenges and who are not helped by current treatments. We are pioneering the development of a new model of psilocybin therapy, in which our proprietary formulation of synthetic psilocybin, COMP360, is administered in conjunction with psychological support. COMP360 has been designated a Breakthrough Therapy by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) and has received Innovative Licensing and Access Pathway (ILAP) designation in the UK for treatment-resistant depression (TRD). We have commenced a phase 3 clinical program of COMP 360 psilocybin therapy in TRD, the largest randomised, controlled, double-blind psilocybin therapy clinical program ever conducted. Previously, we completed a phase 2b study with top line data showing a statistically significant (p<0.001) and clinically relevant improvement in depressive symptom severity after three weeks for patients who received a single high dose of COMP360 psilocybin with psychological support. We are also conducting phase 2 clinical studies of COMP360 psilocybin therapy for post-traumatic stress disorder (PTSD) and anorexia nervosa. COMPASS is headquartered in London, UK, with offices in New York and San Francisco in the United States. Our vision is a world of mental wellbeing. This post contains sponsored content.
