LONDON, Sept. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wine futures, sometimes called En Primeur, is a way to buy the most highly-sought after wines before they are bottled and released on the market. Crurated, a blockchain and member-based wine community, is taking this concept to the next level with new technology that offers provenance as well as customization to the mix. Alfonso de Gaetano, the company’s Founder has announced that Crurated Members can now purchase fractions of barrels which are certified through blockchain and NFT technology. This new offering also gives members the ability to customize bottle formats and labels based on their unique needs.

Crurated is introducing fractional barrel sales with world-renowned producers that include Domaine Fourrier, Charles Lachaux, Domaine Robert Groffier, Domaine Vincent Dancer, Domaine De Montille and Domaine Pierre Girardin.

Crurated is introducing fractional barrel sales with world-renowned producers that include Domaine Fourrier, Charles Lachaux, Domaine Robert Groffier, Domaine Vincent Dancer, Domaine De Montille and Domaine Pierre Girardin.

Crurated is also offering curated experiences for the top 10 fractional barrel purchases, in terms of monetary value. Experiences include a visit with the wine producer, tour of the winemaking facility, a winemaking dinner and other curated events based on location.

“Many of our esteemed clients often ask for larger format bottles. Determining how many to produce beyond the traditional Magnum can be challenging,” said Nicolas Groffier of Domaine Robert Groffier. “Fractional barrel sales and the ability for buyers to customize bottle size allows us to determine the exact number and sizes of bottles we will need. And now the only way to have larger size formats from Domaine Robert Groffier is through Crurated.”

Crurated Presents The Barrel of The Future

“This new concept completely changes the way rare, pre-bottled wines are sold to consumers,” said Alfonso. “Fractional ownership has been around for decades and is just now being applied to digital art in the NFT space. While a fraction of a Bored Ape may be a unique application of the technology, it is shared and not something you can enjoy on its own. Our concept revolutionizes fractional ownership backed by NFTs by offering the value of provenance to further authenticate the wine. Members can also customize their bottle formats and labels and then appreciate their fraction of rarity in the real world.”

The current schedule for the fractional sales of French barrels includes:

  • Sept. 26 – October 2: Domaine Fourrier – 2 Barrel
  • Oct. 3 – October 9: Charles Lachaux – 6 Barrels
  • Oct. 10 – October 16: Domaine Vincent Dancer – 1 Barrel

LONDRES, 26 sept. 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Wine futures, parfois appelé En Primeur, est un moyen d’acheter les vins les plus recherchés avant leur mise en bouteille et leur mise sur le marché. Crurated, une communauté viticole basée sur la blockchain et les membres, fait passer ce concept au niveau supérieur avec une nouvelle technologie intégrant provenance et personnalisation. Alfonso de Gaetano, fondateur de la société, a annoncé que les membres de Crurated peuvent désormais acheter des fractions de tonneaux qui sont certifiées via la blockchain et la technologie NFT. Cette nouvelle offre donne également aux membres la possibilité de personnaliser les formats des bouteilles et les étiquettes en fonction de leurs besoins uniques.

Crurated organise des ventes fractionnées de tonneaux avec des producteurs de renommée mondiale, notamment le Domaine Fourrier, Charles Lachaux, le Domaine Robert Groffier, le Domaine Vincent Dancer, le Domaine De Montille et le Domaine Pierre Girardin

Les expériences incluent une visite du producteur de vin, une visite des installations viticoles, un dîner dans un domaine viticole et d’autres événements organisés selon l’emplacement.

« Bon nombre de nos clients estimés demandent souvent des bouteilles dans un format plus grand. Il peut être difficile de déterminer la quantité à produire au-delà du Magnum traditionnel », a déclaré Nicolas Groffier du Domaine Robert Groffier. « Les ventes de tonneaux fractionnés et la possibilité pour les acheteurs de personnaliser la taille des bouteilles nous permettent de déterminer le nombre et la taille exacts des bouteilles dont nous aurons besoin. Et aujourd’hui, la seule façon d’avoir des formats de plus grande taille du Domaine Robert Groffier consiste à passer par Crurated. »

« Ce nouveau concept change complètement la façon dont les vins rares en bouteille sont vendus aux consommateurs », a déclaré M. Alfonso. « La propriété fractionnée existe depuis des décennies et s’applique à présent à l’art numérique dans l’espace NFT. Bien qu’une fraction d’un Bored Ape soit peut-être une application unique de la technologie, elle est partagée et non quelque chose que vous pouvez apprécier seule. Notre concept révolutionne la propriété fractionnée soutenue par les NFT en offrant la valeur de la provenance pour mieux authentifier le vin. Les membres peuvent également personnaliser leurs formats de bouteilles et leurs étiquettes, puis apprécier leur part de rareté dans le monde réel. »

Uplifting the youth of Saint Lucia

CASTRIES, Saint Lucia, Sept. 26, 2022 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Countries across the globe have recognised the importance of investing in their youth. Beyond providing basic amenities such as healthcare, education, employment and housing to their citizens, developing economies need to act purposefully to uplift their young populations. These efforts largely define how rapidly a nation will advance.

From this perspective, the government of Saint Lucia is proactively investing in its citizens – with its youth at the top of its list of priorities. The country is advancing at a significant pace, particularly in terms of infrastructure development and its economic undertakings. This growth and development are directly linked to its Citizenship by Investment Programme (CIP), launched in 2016.

The major inflow of funds generated by the Citizenship by Investment Programme has propelled Saint Lucia’s economy, promising a brighter future ahead for its young population.

Rates of employment on the island have improved significantly over the last few years. This is directly linked to the development of various multi-million dollar projects. These projects have been stimulated by foreign investment generated by the country’s CIP.

The advancement of infrastructure is opening a wide range of opportunities not only for investors but also for the country’s youth across a diverse range of industries which include hospitality, service, architecture, banking, and broadcasting. Saint Lucia is growing, and so too are its people.

Recently, the Global Hyatt group signed plans to construct the 345-room Grand Hyatt luxury hotel in Saint Lucia. The project will provide employment for at least 2000 of the island’s citizens through opportunities in construction, operations and management. While providing a major boost to the economy, it will also create significant opportunities for aspiring youth to grow professionally and achieve financial independence. This is just one of the many examples of how foreign investment is directly benefitting the country.

Mathurin is a media and communications professional in Saint Lucia who is reaching new heights in her career. She has expressed confidence about the role that the CIP plays.

“It makes me so happy every time when our talent and accomplishments are celebrated. For me as a young Saint Lucian, as a young creator, I am looking forward to projects like CIP helping us channel resources in the right direction,” said Mathurin.

Mathurin looks forward to the programme providing her with a wider platform to exhibit her talents and further hone her skills. With the development and growth of CIP in Saint Lucia, she is just one of the country’s young professionals who will benefit from the increased investment.

Saint Lucia’s Citizenship by Investment Programme allows foreign investors to become citizens of the country in exchange for investing in the country’s economy. It is a much sought-after programme, ranking third in the CBI Index of 2022 and scoring 87% with 78 points.

The CBI Index is released annually by the Professional Wealth Management Magazine (PWM), published by the Financial Times. It provides a comprehensive evaluation of citizenship by investment programmes in thirteen jurisdictions.

The Index compares jurisdictions according to nine parameters, known as the “nine pillars of excellence.” These include: the minimum investment outlay, the extent to which investors can obtain citizenship for family, the timeline for securing citizenship, the due diligence of the process, ease of processing, freedom of movement within and between countries, mandatory travel or residence conditions, and the certainty and robustness of the programme.

Saint Lucia has particularly excelled in the minimum investment outlay, freedom of movement and ease of processing pillars. This excellent score has drawn a diverse range of individuals with adequate resources to invest in the country. The programme has thus proved mutually beneficial – helping both the country and investors.

The establishment of wider business networks is yet another aspect of the programme from which young Saint Lucians profit. CIP investors often bring significant entrepreneurial networks from their respective fields to the country. Working and collaborating with investors thus provides a great platform for existing businesses to grow, stimulating the development of new businesses and industries as well. While investors receive a stable and secure environment from which to operate their businesses, young professionals have the opportunity to learn from experts in their field and to grow to their maximum capacity.

Since the Covid-19 pandemic, the government’s emphasis has also shifted towards developing and uplifting public health infrastructure and services. CIP funds are therefore also being directed to the health sector. Recently, the Ministry of Health, Wellness and Elderly Affairs donated a haematology analyser and immunoassay analyser to St. Jude Hospital in the coastal town of Vieux Fort. These additions to the healthcare infrastructure will strengthen the delivery of diagnostic testing in the country. In this instance, both young and elderly citizens will reap the benefits of CIP funds.

This is just one of the various impacts of resources generated by Saint Lucia’s Citizenship by Investment Programme. However, it is not just the country’s citizens but also investors who benefit from the programme. They gain a safe, secure and stable environment from which to grow their families and businesses.

SAINT LUCIA: CITIZENSHIP BY INVESTMENT PROGRAMME (CIP)

Saint Lucia is the latest Caribbean country to open its borders to Citizenship by Investment. Although the programme was launched just six years ago in 2016, it is already considered one of the top three countries for Citizenship by Investment, according to the CBI Index of 2022. The CIP of Saint Lucia provides numerous benefits such as:

1: Providing investors with global mobility

2: Delivering opportunities for diversifying investors’ portfolios

3: Planning wealth and business expansion overseas

4: Gaining a citizenship that can be passed down to future generations.

Saint Lucia’s Citizenship by Investment programme is also notable for the ease of its application process. This includes five steps:

Step 1: Completion of the application by applicants.

Step 2: Submission of the application via the CIP Portal.

Step 3: Document verification by the CIP Unit and the undergoing of due-diligence processes.

Step 4: The selection or rejection of the application by the board.

Step 5: The provision of certification, subject to selection.

Tigray Nutrition Cluster: Humanitarian Response Update, August 2022

Find and treat campaigns

Find and treat campaigns began in August 2021. By Aug 2022, 20 Woredas had carried out find and treat campaigns reaching 88% of the targeted children U5 (209,181) and 98% of PLWs (55,957) with MUAC screening and providing treatment for the malnourished while linking them with a follow-up OTP or SC site.

In Aug 2022, a F& T campaigns was held in Tselemti and Mai Tsebri Woredas jointly and the proxy GAM rate was 29% while the proxy-SAM rate was 3.6%. In all the 20 Woredas, the average proxy-SAM rate was 3.6% while the average proxy-GAM rate was 28.6%. A total of 917 children had bilateral pitting oedema.

Of the PLW screened, 67% had MUAC <23cm showing high malnutrition rates among PLW.

The 14 F&T campaigns conducted in 2022 enabled the finding and referral of 6,262 new SAM cases, which is 6.8% of the yearly regional target of 92,650 The find and treat campaigns are useful in estimating the nutrition needs in the different Woredas.

Tigray Nutrition Cluster Advocacy Note: Women and children in Tigray region, Ethiopia, in dire need of life-saving nutrition support

The Need

Almost half a million children are projected to suffer from wasting in 2022 in Tigray region, and it is estimated that 93,000 children could develop a severe form of wasting putting them at risk of death. A child suffering from severe wasting is nine time more likely to die than a well-nourished child. Children under 5 are currently already experiencing above emergency threshold levels of wasting (>15%) across several parts of the region with children aged 6-24months being the worst affected. The Tigray Emergency Food Security Assessment (EFSA) conducted in June 2022 reports that 29.4% of children have wasting and 5.8% have severe wasting using MUAC measurements. Other alarming figures are the levels of malnutrition in pregnant and lactating women (PLW) which range from 55-80% as shown by the find and treat campaigns results and the EFSA report (2022). The number of low-birth weight babies in hospitals has been increasing which raise additional serious concerns.

Response

To improve diets of children and prevent malnutrition in Tigray, Nutrition cluster members provide Infant and young child feeding education and counselling to pregnant and lactating women and caregivers of children focusing on the essential first 1000 days of life. Despite these efforts, the quality of the diets remains low, and this inflicts devastating damage in children, stunting children’s growth, impairing their brain development, and leaving them susceptible to diseases. Only 1.3% of the children are meeting their minimum acceptable diet which is an indicator that considers the diversity and frequency of meals. This is also linked to the food insecurity in the region where 89% of the households were classified as food insecure while 47% were severely food insecure.

To protect children’s right to food and nutrition in Tigray, from October 2021, UNICEF and its partners have spearheaded the find and treat campaigns in 79 accessible Woredas. In a propitious environment, the campaign could have reached the 79 woredas in just 1 month. However, due to lack of cash, fuel, and supplies, only 19 out of the 79 Woredas have been covered with the campaign to date. 9 additional Woredas in the western zone are currently inaccessible. The Find and Treat campaigns focus on screening of children and PLW for malnutrition, providing treatment for the malnourished while linking them with a follow-up health facility. Additionally, supplements to prevent vitamin and nutrient deficiencies are provided to women and children. The campaigns are also a platform for monitoring the nutrition situation of children in the Woredas since partners have not been able to carry out SMART surveys in the past two years. Also due to lack of phone or internet connection monitoring of the nutrition response has been difficult.
