VALENCIA, VALENCIA, SPAIN, February 28, 2021 / — Translational Genomics Group (Dr. Artero’s Lab), a Spanish research laboratory affiliated to the University of Valencia (UVEG) and INCLIVA Biomedical Research Institute, is a pioneer in discovering therapeutic targets and innovative drug candidates for rare diseases, has announced the development of novel DM1 (Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1) therapies based on recent new knowledge on microRNA class molecules. Being the most common muscular dystrophy in adults, affecting around 90,000 people in Europe and 75,000 in the US, the researchers from the Translational Genomics Group announced that their DM therapy could help these people and improve their quality of life.

About Myotonic Dystrophy Type 1

Myotonic dystrophy type 1 (DM1) is a life-threatening and chronically debilitating disease. The estimated incidence of the disorder worldwide is approximately one in 3,000-8,000 people, making it the most frequent adult muscular dystrophy. The disorder is inherited as an autosomal dominant trait, meaning that a child must inherit only one copy of the defective gene from one parent to develop the disease. Individuals born from individuals who are carriers of the mutated gene usually display age anticipation and higher severity for the clinical disease progression. Currently, there is no cure available to arrest or retard disease progression. Therefore, possible treatments are urgently needed since clinical management is limited to symptomatic care.

DM1 displays a wide range for onset of the clinical signs, including neonatal and infantile, to later adult forms being diagnosed. In a common clinical path, DM1 patients always manifest an important degree of progressive locomotor muscle weakness, atrophy, and myotonia, with the addition of less known, but also frequent, respiratory and cardiac impairments connected to other muscles degeneration, eventually leading to premature death, neurological issues causing social disabilities, and features outside the neuromuscular spectrum, including diabetes, cataracts, and higher cancer incidence.

Caused by an expansion of CTG repeats in a non-coding region of the DMPK gene, DM1 was the first disease ever described for which the underlying cause of the pathology involves an RNA-gain-of-function (RNA toxicity) mechanism. Upon transcription, expanded CUG in DMPK mRNAs form stable hairpin structures retained in the cell nucleus where they contribute to the abnormal binding and functional depletion of important factors strongly involved in RNA metabolism. Specifically, the limited availability of Muscleblind-like family factors (MBNLs) is the most significant contribution to DM1 phenotypes, like cardiac conduction problems, myotonia, and insulin resistance. However, the causes of other former critical clinical features in DM1 patients, like the significant muscular atrophy, are still not understood.

About Translational Genomics Group (Dr. Artero’s Lab):

Translational Genomics Group currently aims to identify therapeutic targets and develop innovative treatments for rare neuromuscular diseases ( Very focused on DM1 from the very beginning, Dr. Artero and his team have provided the community with significant scientific advances that are now practical tools to push forward the development of novel drugs against DM1. Thus, their practical and rapid drug screening approaches have helped to identify and validate several chemical compounds, some licensed to the industry, for their further development in DM1. Dr. Artero´s long-term vision is highly relevant and transformative in filling in the gap between drug discovery and development in DM1 by leading the engagement of a multidisciplinary-driven effort to translate the results into actual treatments.

During the last years, Dr. Artero´s research has tracked to the DM1 field new actors to act together in a coordinated manner, intending to move novel candidate drugs to their next step. Research groups from top-notch European institutions such as Oxford University (UK) and CSIC (Spain), involved in medicinal chemistry of therapeutic oligonucleotides; Institute of Myology (France), developing novel animal model experimentation; IBEC (Spain), developing 3D tissue bioengineering; IIS Biodonostia (Spain), studying clinical evolution of the disease, are now directly involved in DM1 research through ongoing multidisciplinary projects like TATAMI (being funded by “la Caixa” Banking Foundation under the project code HR17-00268) or PROMETEO (being funded by regional Valencian Government) both coordinated by Dr. Artero. Significantly, non-scientific stakeholders are also involved in these projects to increase the chances of subsequent efforts, including national (ASEM Federation) and international (Myotonic Dystrophy Foundation) patient associations, research transfer offices, and regulatory CROs. At this moment, Dr. Artero is pursuing the construction of an European network for DM1 translational research with the incorporation of additional partners at scientific and non-scientific levels.

About microRNAs and DM1

In the last years, Dr. Artero’s group has pioneered the deciphering of small RNA regulatory molecules, called microRNAs (miRNAs), on distinct DM1 disease features.

By characterizing the miRNA-linked repression of the endogenous MBNL genes as an overlaid layer of regulation to the MBNL depletion pathway, they found two specific miRNAs (miR-23b and miR-218) that repress the expression of MBNL1 and MBNL2. Thus, the group has designed antisense oligonucleotides (AONs) that block the repressive miRNAs (antagomiRs), which have provided proof-of-concept to improve DM1-like alterations in a mouse model of the disease. Importantly, these results, under patent protection and recently published in the journal Nature Communications, led the creation, at the end of 2019, of a spin-off company of the University of Valencia, ARTHEx Biotech (, that rapidly grown the interest of private investors at the bio & health field, completing an initial seed-round of 8M $ for the optimization of the drug candidate, subsequent preclinical regulatory studies, and design of the first clinical trial.

In a parallel research line, Dr. Artero´s group has recently published in Molecular Therapy Nucleic Acids how miR-7 contributes to the muscle atrophy phenotype in DM1 by studying its consequences replenishing or blocking miR-7 by using specific agomiR and antagomiR oligonucleotide molecules, respectively. Importantly, they highlighted that miR-7 dysfunction was linked to the alteration of catabolic muscle processes through autophagy- and atrophy-related pathways and support that restoration of miR-7 levels is a candidate therapeutic target counteracting muscle atrophy in DM1. A broader characterization of the molecular pathway for DM1 muscle atrophy is currently ongoing.

USA Merchants Targeting YoReSpot



Brandon Irlbeck (CEO YoReSpot)

Brandon Irlbeck (CEO YoReSpot)

BAYARD, IOWA, UNITED STATES, February 27, 2021 / —
There’s a new social media that is making waves with people from all over and with all backgrounds. The site is called YoReSpot. Created and funded by Brandon Irlbeck of Bayard, Iowa, this site was started with the belief that all people can come together without anyone experiencing the widespread censorship that other sites enforce. Whether it’s for a meme that you post, a comment made to someone, or even for liking things too much, too fast; this censorship has gotten out of hand, and it is only furthering the divide between people. YoReSpot has many features for it’s users to enjoy, including going live, calling in messenger, games, blog section and so much more. Not only does it have a familiar feel, but it runs smooth and the peaceful community like feel is astounding. A site for unity, for peaceful interactions, no matter what your spiritual beliefs, political or personal views are.

Despite standing up for unity, this site has not been met by everyone with open arms, including some other companies. In November of 2020, YoReSpot decided to use PayPal, Inc. for a one time payment of $9.99 for an ad-free version of the social networking site. This option removes ads, and also helps support the independently owned company. After just one week of use, PayPal emailed Irlbeck, CEO of YoReSpot, to inform him they were permanently suspending his business account. PayPal emails stated they did not have to explain why or how they came to this decision of action. Naturally, wanting to know why, a phone call took place between Irlbeck and PayPal in December of 2020. The PayPal representative stated that the company didn’t want anything to do with a site promoting Save the Children and Fund Homeless Vets movements, then proceeded to hang up on Irlbeck. They have since refused to engage in further contact with Irlbeck or his team and are still holding the money. “PayPal put a hold on a pretty decent chunk of change and said they would not release it for 180 days,” Irlbeck states, “none of this makes any sense to me. We haven’t done anything against their Terms of Service.”

Following the PayPal incident, Irlbeck decided to switch to Stripe for monetizing. Stripe was founded by John and Patrick Collison, with Patrick as the CEO. Things went very smooth with Stripe for a couple months, and Irlbeck thought that those issues were all in the past. Then on 2/26/2021, Stripe emailed Irlbeck saying they have permanently canceled the account and are holding the funds for 120 days. When Irlbeck tried to get an explanation, he got the familiar response that Stripe has the right to refuse to explain why his account was suspended permanently. “Here’s the kicker though,” Irlbeck says, “Stripe will not even allow me to refund users, they have locked my account completely.” So, Stripe is not just holding the money, but refusing to allow refunds as well; they’re effectively taking control of money that isn’t legally theirs, without a word of why or any communication thereafter.

Irlbeck has emailed his team of lawyers and is waiting back to find out if YoReSpot can take any legal action. “They have already gone through every transaction,” Irlbeck states, “and have concluded that neither PayPal or Stripe’s Terms of Service were not violated, in any way.” Some of his users have asked if there is anything they can do, while others are even calling for a boycott of Stripe and PayPal, Inc. for this ludicrous action made against such a respected and hardworking businessman. Irlbeck has vowed to do his best to find a payment company that does not have these policies and won’t shut accounts down without just cause.

CEO of Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty Reveals 5-Star Reviews is Secret to Agency’s Billion Dollar Success

I always instill in them that if they were to set up deals up to get a 5 Star Review from every client as opposed to stopping short of that at the commission check, they would get MORE commission checks. Every time we meet a client, we are doing a deal to

ROSEMEAD, CA, UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, February 27, 2021 / — The award-winning CEO of Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty, Rudy Lira Kusuma, revealed today that the driving force behind the company’s success, including closing 1 billion dollars in deals during the pandemic and selling homes three time faster on average, is a laser focus on getting 5-star reviews, repeat clients and referrals.

Kusuma discussed the topic in a series of social media posts, noting that, “My approach to leadership at Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty is to encourage our agents to act as if their reviews were currency. Imagine if, rather than commission checks, reviews were what we relied on to pay the bills. Would this make a difference in how you interact with your clients?”

“This way of thinking is actually the basis for our training system which is set up to teach a method of striving for 5-star reviews from every client.” he continued. “This is what has made the difference for us as an award-winning brokerage and is the real secret to why we were able to close 1 billion dollars in real estate deals even during a global pandemic.”

In addition to receiving multiple five-star reviews on Google and Zillow, the broker and his team regularly receive praise through video testimonials from their clients. Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty operates with a system that allows for a different kind of second-mile service baked into deals from the moment agents meet face to face with clients.

“Our agents are held to a very high standard.” Continued Kusuma. “I always instill in them that if they were to set up deals up to get a 5 Star Review from every client as opposed to stopping short of that at the commission check, they would get MORE commission checks. Every time we meet a client, we are doing a deal to get a lifetime customer. Everything in our process is built to do that. It’s all part of the system that makes it possible for us to repeat success with every client.”

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty is always actively looking for agents of a high caliber to join their award-winning team. Since their start in 2007, Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty has operated with a strict no cold calling, no door knocking, and no prospecting policy. Instead, they use a proven system to generate leads and ensure a culture of providing 5-star service to continually bring in 5-star reviews from clients.

Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty recently held an online event to celebrate their best agents’ achievements, including agents who made lifechanging gains in their income since joining the Your Home Sold Guaranteed Realty team.

“What we offer our agents is truly different.” Said Rudy Lira Kusuma. “We are a high energy team that brings our best to every client interaction and every listing and sale. Our team is constantly growing and we welcome agents who are looking for a brokerage where they can be successful, take pride in their quality of service and be a part of an award-winning and high earning team.”

AFFIRM Testing Platform 2020 MVP for BlackFin Group

BlackFin Group has released its 2020 performance report, which shows its AFFIRM testing platform contributed significantly to the company’s growth.

Having a robust testing platform ready to go made 2020 a very good year for our company.”

— Lloyd Booth, BlackFin Group CTO

LAGUNA HILLS, CA, USA, February 26, 2021 / — BlackFin Group, a management consulting firm serving the Mortgage Banking Industry, has released its 2020 performance report to internal stakeholders, which shows that the company’s AFFIRM testing platform was embraced by the industry in 2020, contributing significantly to the company’s growth. AFFIRM is a state-of-the-art, blended approach to testing that delivers a cost-effective, accurate and efficient software testing strategy.

“2020 was all about digital lending for many lenders, as they struggled to keep up with volume and consumer expectations,” said BlackFin Group CEO Keith Kemph. “We saw a lot of new technology implemented last year. Testing is always a critical element of this process. Few other IT activities can be as difficult to get right or as costly to get wrong. This was a great opportunity for BlackFin Group and our AFFIRM testing platform.”

New software implementations are complex initiatives. Success is dependent upon a good testing methodology, but manual testing is expensive and time-consuming. AFFIRM combines well designed manual testing with affordable automated testing to tailor testing processes to meet each organization’s unique business processes. AFFIRM leverage's state-of-the-art technology and BlackFin Group’s own testing best practices, which are built upon decades of software implementation experience.

Last year, BlackFin Group worked with banks, credit unions and independent mortgage banks on new implementations as well as software updates and patches to existing solutions.

“Our client engagements may vary from analysis, to advisory, or doing the heavy lifting to implement your business strategy or technology initiative,” said BlackFin Group Chief Operating Officer and CTO Lloyd Booth. “Having a robust testing platform ready to go made 2020 a very good year for our company.”
