Lancaster Resources Secures Approval for Phase 1 Drill Program at Alkali Flat Lithium Brine Project

Lancaster Resources Inc

Lancaster Resources CEO Penny White joined Steve Darling from Proactive to share exciting news about the company's latest milestone. The United States Department of the Interior Bureau of Land Management (BLM) has granted Lancaster approval for the Plan of Operations concerning the Alkali Flat Lithium Brine Phase 1 drill program. This approval follows a previous permit granted by the New Mexico Mining and Minerals Division, marking a significant step forward in the project's development. White detailed the scope and implications of this approval, highlighting that it includes the potential to drill up to three wells on the playa. This provision allows for an expedited regulatory process, contingent on the results of the maiden well, expected in the second quarter of 2024. The approval also comes with stringent conditions aimed at ensuring access, safety, and environmental protection. Lancaster Resources has worked closely with the BLM to develop these conditions, demonstrating their commitment to meeting or exceeding all regulatory requirements. This collaboration underscores Lancaster's dedication to safeguarding the environment and ensuring the safety of all stakeholders involved. The Alkali Flat Lithium Project targets a closed-basin brine deposit located in a playa lake setting. This strategic location is advantageous due to its proximity to major transportation infrastructure, including a major rail line and interstate highway, which provide excellent access to the project site. The Drill Permit area is situated approximately 8 miles north of the renowned 15MW Lightning Dock Known Geothermal Resource Area, further highlighting the project's promising potential. The Alkali Flat Lithium Project represents a significant opportunity for Lancaster Resources to contribute to the growing demand for lithium, a critical component in the production of batteries for electric vehicles and renewable energy storage. As the world transitions towards a more sustainable energy future, the successful development of the Alkali Flat Lithium Project will position Lancaster Resources as a key player in the lithium supply chain.

Surf Air Mobility Beats Revenue Guidance and Appoints Former Bombardier Flexjet Exec as New Interim CEO


Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM), a leading regional air mobility platform, just announced its incoming interim-CEO, Deanna White, a leading pioneer in the aviation industry. 1 Deanna, Surf Air Mobility ’s former CFO and current Senior Advisor, will become full time Chief Operating Officer and interim CEO for Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM). Deanna White brings years of executive experience in aviation and a proven commitment to transforming flight. This news also marks a significant milestone for the aviation space, which is primarily a male-dominated industry. Deanna is the perfect choice to guide Surf Air Mobility into the future as the company turns its focus to profitability and efficiency. Her unparalleled depth of experience in the aviation industry, combined with her intimate knowledge of Surf Air Mobility and the broader opportunity, positions her to lead the company towards new heights. Since joining Surf Air Mobility in 2021, she has made valuable and long-lasting contributions as both CFO and Senior Advisor of the company. Deanna’s previous experience in both emerging aviation technologies and private charter operations makes her an amazing fit. She has served as COO at Kittyhawk, which was sold during her tenure to Boeing and has subsequently been rebranded as Wisk Aero, where she led the business operations and commercialization of an R&D eVTOL aircraft program. She was also CEO of Bombardier Flexjet, a global leader in private aviation, which was ultimately sold to Directional Aviation Capital for $185 million. Deanna is a seasoned industry leader, blending an intimate knowledge of Surf Air Mobility and its people with an unparalleled depth of experience in the aviation industry. She has a proven track record of success in the C-Suite of multiple innovative companies across the Air Mobility sector. Her previous experience in C-level positions at Bombardier Flexjet and Kittyhawk, continues to guide and inspire her as she leads Surf Air Mobility into its next chapter. This new phase will balance growth and opportunity with profitability, as Deanna reshapes the industry and realizes Surf Air Mobility ’s massive potential. In a CEO transition, Stan Little, the founder of Southern Airways and current Surf Air CEO, will move to a "Founder’s" role. Surf Air Mobility also provided financial and business highlights for the first quarter of 2024. The company is making progress on key initiatives, including supporting 19 communities under the Essential Air Service program and entering into an MOU to supply electric powertrains to Tanzanian Cessna Caravan operator Auric Air. The aircraft electrification program is on track to complete the conceptual design phase by the fourth quarter of 2024, and software development for B2C and B2B platforms is ongoing. To enhance its capital structure, Surf Air Mobility has engaged a leading investment bank to secure additional, non-dilutive or less-dilutive capital in the form of a credit facility. Congress is expected to imminently pass the FAA Reauthorization Act, which, in its current form, would positively impact the Essential Air Service (“EAS”) program by raising the subsidy cap from a maximum of $200 per passenger to a maximum of at least $650 per passenger. As of March 31, Surf Air Mobility supported 19 communities under the EAS program. The FAA Reauthorization Act requires the total cost of an air carrier's proposal to be equally weighted with other factors such as local recommendations, including frequency of service, and interline agreements. This focus on cost favors Surf Air Mobility’s low-cost Caravan fleet. Stan Little, founder of Southern Airways, highlighted that Surf Air Mobility achieved many first-quarter goals and met or exceeded guidance. He noted their collaboration with Congressional leaders from both parties to reform and expand the Essential Air Service program, aiming to benefit passengers, commuter air carriers, and taxpayers. Additionally, the company continued its electrification efforts, which are designed to benefit all stakeholders. For more information on the company’s first quarter financial results and outlook, visit Surf Air Mobility Advances Regional Air Travel Through Electrification Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM), headquartered in Los Angeles, is dedicated to transforming regional air travel through electrification. The company partners with commercial leaders to develop innovative powertrain technology for smaller aircraft, with the goal of making regional flying more accessible and affordable while reducing environmental impact. Supported by a management team with expertise in aviation, electrification, and consumer technology, Surf Air Mobility is at the forefront of sustainable air travel innovation. In March, Surf Air Mobility signed an agreement with Auric Air Services Ltd. to upgrade up to 12 of their Cessna Grand Caravan aircraft with Surf Air ’s electrified powertrains, aiming to lower emissions and reduce operating costs. Auric Air, a Tanzania-based regional air operator, will be among the first to benefit from Surf Air 's technology once it is certified. This agreement marks a significant milestone for Surf Air, as it now has agreements covering approximately 13% of the Cessna Caravan market in Africa for electrified powertrain upgrades. Surf Air is currently developing Supplemental Type Certifications for both hybrid and fully-electric variants of the Cessna Grand Caravan. The company aims to achieve up to 50% reduction in direct operating costs and 100% reduction in carbon emissions for the fully-electric powertrain, which could have a profound impact on the aviation industry worldwide. This agreement with Auric Air follows similar agreements with other large Cessna Caravan operators in East Africa and Brazil. In February, Surf Air Mobility and Inc., a next-gen aerospace company, partnered to introduce affordable, sustainable, and easily accessible regional air travel. They plan to leverage Electra’s hybrid-electric short takeoff and landing (eSTOL) aircraft on Surf Air ’s technology-driven, on-demand air mobility platform, and through Surf Air ’s Aircraft-as-a-Service (ACaaS) offering to air operators. Surf Air Mobility Inc. (NYSE:SRFM) has secured early delivery positions for 90 Electra eSTOL aircraft, which will be integrated into the Surf Air national flight network, including Southern Airways Express and Mokulele Airlines. This initiative aligns with Surf Air ’s goal of supporting the launch, growth, and optimization of new electrified aircraft through its platform. The Electra eSTOL aircraft’s remarkable ability to take off and land in as little as 150 feet will enable direct-to-destination air transportation, expanding regional transportation to a broader customer base beyond what private aviation currently serves.

ISC Reports Strong First Quarter Growth in 2024, Launches Five-Year Growth Strategy

Information Services Corp

ISC CEO Shawn Peters joined Steve Darling from Proactive to discuss the company's impressive financial performance in the first quarter of 2024, coinciding with the launch of its ambitious five-year growth plan. The company recorded a revenue of $56.4 million, marking a 15 percent increase compared to the first quarter of 2023. This growth is attributed to fee adjustments within the Saskatchewan Registries division implemented in the third quarter of 2023, as well as consistent customer and transaction growth in the Services’ Regulatory Solutions division and the advancement of project work on both existing and new solutions in the Technology Solutions division. Peters also highlighted that the Adjusted EBITDA for the quarter rose to $19.4 million, up from $14.5 million in the same period last year. This increase was primarily driven by the aforementioned fee adjustments in the Registry Operations’ Saskatchewan Registries division, in line with the Extension Agreement and annual CPI adjustments. Additionally, the Technology Solutions division saw an increase in its Adjusted EBITDA, which grew due to increased revenue from ongoing and new solution definition and implementation contracts. The Adjusted EBITDA margin significantly improved to 34.5 percent, up from 29.5 percent in the first quarter of 2023, reflecting the positive impact of the pricing strategies implemented.

Article thumbnail News Release raises $10M to give any developer the ability to build AI meeting bots in days

Recall AI

Conversations are now the world’s largest dataset. Millions of hours of meetings happen everyday over video conferencing platforms, and hundreds of companies try to make sense of these meetings using AI-powered meeting bots that take months to build. Today, the universal API for meeting bots has announced a $10 million funding round to allow engineers to integrate with any meeting platform, including Zoom, Google Meet, Microsoft Teams, Slack Huddles, and even platforms with no API. This funding round comes hot on the heels of 10x growth over the past 12 months. The Series A funding round was led by Ridge Ventures with participation from Industry Ventures, Y Combinator, IrregEx, Bungalow Capital, Hack VC, and other existing investors. which will be used to scale’s product and team. This fresh investment brings the company’s total amount raised to over $12M, following a $2.7 million seed round in December 2022. It can take over one year for a team of specialist engineers to build the infrastructure and integrations required for even the most basic AI-powered meeting bots. After they’re built, companies face the bigger and more labor-intensive challenge of hosting and maintaining the infrastructure on hundreds of thousands of servers. In comparison, lets a single engineer get up and running with a meeting bot in a few days, even if they don’t have expertise in real-time video processing. This lets companies focus on building their core product while runs, monitors, and scales complex, real-time video infrastructure. "Recall has been a critical partner to us in rolling out's new AI copilot functionality which has been a huge hit with customers,” explained Aydin Mirzaee, CEO of “We love working with Recall because they are focused on the infrastructure so that we can focus on what we're good at - solving meeting productivity for companies everywhere." Co-founders David Gu and Amanda Zhu launched as two important trends emerged: a worldwide shift to remote work, and advances in AI technology that simplified the processing of unstructured voice and video data. Gu and Zhu previously worked on a real-time transcription tool for video conferences, where the bulk of their engineering team’s effort was spent building and maintaining integrations with conferencing platforms. The duo realized companies building LLM tools to process data from virtual meetings today were running into the same integration and infrastructure hurdles they had already solved, and decided to start to enable the next generation of LLM-powered apps. Over the last 12 months, has grown 10x and today ingests millions of hours of video meeting data for more than 300 companies. Customers are currently using the platform to build powerful tools that leverage conversation intelligence for sales enablement discussions, productivity, customer success, financial advising, telehealth applications, and virtual depositions, among other use cases. Recently, Recall also partnered with Zoom to release an official Meeting Bot Starter Kit that generates a transcript, requests a meeting summary, and provides it to participants in near real-time. “Conversations are the world’s largest dataset,” said David Gu, co-founder at “Large language models continue to unlock conversations in exciting ways, and the demand for developers to capture this data has never been higher. Every SaaS company in the world should be using conversations as a data source. Recall’s unified API makes it as easy as possible.” “Recall is on its way to becoming the de facto infrastructural layer for all enterprise-level conversational data,” added Akriti Dokania, Partner at Ridge Ventures. “Video and voice data will only become more central to software companies moving forward. Providing infrastructure API access is a hard problem to solve and enterprises don’t want to solve it in-house—Recall’s tremendous growth proves it ten times over. Most importantly, David and Amanda are an ideal founding duo: technically gifted, tenacious, wise beyond their years, and always willing to learn and grow.” With this new funding, the company is primed for the next phase of growth. The same way that AWS provided common infrastructure that every company building a web application would need as they scale, is setting out to provide the common infrastructure for every company who needs to access and apply AI to conversations. About provides a single API for accessing real-time meeting data from platforms like Zoom, Microsoft Teams, Google Meet, and more. Real-time meeting integrations require a lot of moving parts, so provides a unified framework that simplifies this process. makes it easy to trigger actions based on who is speaking, when people join or leave a meeting, and more, all with a single API for every platform which helps lower development time and upkeep costs. The API can be used with both audio and video streams, even for meeting platforms that do not have a publicly accessible API.

Shareholder Warns Maker of Oreo That They are Endangering Their Brand


Following the viral online ad it released about Oreo and its troubling partnership with LGBTQ advocacy group PFLAG, National Legal and Policy Center has published a follow-up video to promote a shareholder proposal it will present on May 22 at the annual meeting of Mondelez International, parent company of the cookie brand. NLPC’s resolution calls upon the multinational snack giant to scrutinize areas of risk where it has engaged in disturbing relationships with outside organizations, such as the one Oreo has with PFLAG. Other examples in the proposal cite Mondelez’s support for the Marxist, anti-law enforcement group Black Lives Matter Global Network Foundation, and the company’s partnership with the anti-Semitic UN Human Rights. “Mondelez is carelessly dashing through the consumer market dropping mines that very well could end up as tripwires for themselves,” said Paul Chesser, director of the Corporate Integrity Project for NLPC. “It’s not surprising since Chairman/CEO Dirk Van de Put also serves on the board of Anheuser Busch InBev, the company that self-inflicted the greatest brand destruction in many years last April with Bud Light.” As NLPC pointed out with its Oreo video released in February, PFLAG condones gender transition treatments for children as young as three years old, and battles to make sure books with explicit content are allowed in public schools and libraries. NLPC initiated its campaign to highlight the cookie-maker’s inappropriate relationship with PFLAG after it noticed the brand’s social media accounts – primarily on X (formerly Twitter) – were heavily populated with posts in support of PFLAG’s various narratives, causes and social advocacy. The new video released today calls attention to Mondelez’s alliances with BLM and UN Human Rights, as well as PFLAG. In a white paper filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission last month, NLPC also identified possible risky relationships the Chicago-based company has with organizations that include Human Rights Campaign, World Economic Forum, the World Health Organization, and others. The broader media is noticing the increasing criticisms of Corporate America’s fealty to the radical LGBTQ+ agenda that includes the sexualization of children. The Wall Street Journal last week reported on NLPC’s proposal for Mondelez, and last month the nonprofit corporate watchdog earned widespread coverage of its proposal at Disney, which sought equal treatment for employees who have been victimized by radical gender ideology. “The political winds have shifted from just a few years ago, yet Mondelez is still living in the past as if nothing has changed,” said NLPC Chairman Peter Flaherty. “Now that the extreme transgenderism push has inevitably progressed to endanger children, corporate involvement in social justice issues is more treacherous than ever. We urge Dirk Van de Put to wake up to the reality before it’s too late, or the consequences could be devastating.” ### For more information or to schedule an interview with Paul Chesser, contact Dan Rene at 202-329-8357 or Please visit Founded in 1991, the National Legal and Policy Center promotes ethics in public life through research, investigation, education and legal action.
