Timothy Dalton Vaughn, 22, of Winston-Salem, North Carolina, was sentenced by a federal judge in California to nearly eight years in prison for conspiracy, hacking and possession of hundreds of child pornography photos and videos.

    Nepal's female soldiers break taboos to tackle COVID crisis

    Four women wearing protective gear lift the body of a coronavirus victim at the Pashupati crematorium in Nepal's capital, Kathmandu, and hand it over to crematory workers - a scene unimaginable in the conservative country in recent years. Women touching a dead body is still a cultural taboo in Nepal. The women carrying corpses in Kathmandu, all soldiers, are being deployed for the first time as the nation of 30 million people tries to manage the bodies of COVID-19 victims amid the growing pandemic.

Highlights: * As previously disclosed, Sales for the quarter decreased due to the impact of the global pandemic on the Company’s clients in South Texas and Florida. Sales for the current quarter (October 1 – December 31, 2020) have already exceeded that of Q1 FY2021 and are expected to fully recover to the level of Q4 FY2020 sales, as the Company shifted its focus to new geographies including Puerto Rico, North Texas, Ohio and others. The Company expects Sales to consistently increase month over month throughout the remainder of FY2021 and beyond. * In response to the significant ongoing challenges in Florida and South Texas relating to the uncontrolled spread of COVID-19 and corresponding paralysis of the healthcare systems in these areas, in late Q4 FY2020 the Company refocused business development efforts to geographies where physician practices and home health agencies were still able to implement Reliq’s products. * In Q1 FY2021, the Company signed contracts with MaxLink MD in North Texas, Diversified Health Partners in Ohio, Oregon and Washington and digiiMED, LLC, in Puerto Rico, to provide its iUGO RPM, CCM, BHI, and PCM solutions to their over 250,000 patients. The Company also launched iUGO Well in Australia and signed a contract with the University of Notre Dame Australia to provide iUGO Well to their 12,000 faculty, staff and students. Onboarding in several of these areas began in late October and has accelerated through November 2020. Onboarding with these clients is expected to continue to increase month over month through FY2021 and beyond. * Subsequent to Q1 FY2021, the Company entered into a strategic alliance with iDocsWeb to offer the iUGO Care Platform to iDocsWeb’s more than 200 Skilled Nursing Facility (SNF) clients who together discharge over 50,000 patients per year, the majority of whom are eligible for Reliq’s Transitional Care Management (TCM), Remote Patient Monitoring (RPM), Chronic Care Management (CCM) and other services. Onboarding of patients will begin in December 2020.    2.Second Tranche of Private Placement Fully Subscribed On October 27, 2020, the Company issued 10,637,056 units at a price of $0.225 per unit for gross proceeds of $2,393,337.60 (the “Units”). Each Unit will consist of one (1) common share and one-half (1/2) of a share purchase warrant (each whole warrant, a “Warrant”). Each Warrant will be exercisable for an additional share at a price of $0.30 for a period of two (2) years from issuance. In the event that the common shares of the Company trade at a closing price of greater than $0.50 per Share for ten (10) consecutive trading days, the Company may accelerate the expiry date of the Warrants to expire on the 30th day after the date on which such notice is given to the warrant holders. The Company is paying finder’s fees of $44,431.88 cash and 188,775 broker warrants in connection with the first tranche. The broker warrants are issued with the same terms as the Warrants described above. The Company will be closing a second tranche of the above private placement, with final closing taking place on or before December 7, 2020. The second tranche is fully subscribed. Pursuant to a price reservation form 4A filed with the TSX-V Venture Exchange on October 22, 2020, the Company will be issuing an additional 2,696,277 Units in the second tranche for gross proceeds of an additional $606,662.33.    3.Outlook for Calendar Year 2021 The Company expects to be cashflow positive in Q1 Calendar 2021 based on the current contracts, and to reach a run rate of over $1.5 Million per quarter by the end of FY2021 (June 30, 2021). Sales are expected to increase month over month every month throughout Calendar Year 2021. Growth is expected to accelerate significantly in the latter half of Calendar 2021 as COVID-19 vaccines become widely available and COVID-associated obstacles to onboarding are eliminated. The Company intends to provide more detailed guidance in Calendar Year 2021 as the course of the global pandemic becomes clearer.    4.Date for Next Quarterly Update Webinar The Company’s interim consolidated financial statements for Q2 FY2021 (period ending December 31, 2020) are due to be filed on or before March 1, 2021.
