BUZ INVESTORS AOL/Yahoo combo to be called ‘Oath,’ The Alibaba-heavy left-behind portion of Yahoo (NASDAQ:YHOO) after it sells its core Internet business to Verizon (VZ +0.9%) is “Altaba,” but what about the Verizon-bound part?

The combination of core Yahoo with AOL will be a company called “Oath,” Business Insider says.

“In the summer of 2017, you can bet we will be launching one of the most disruptive brand companies in digital,” a spokeswoman for AOL said.

The deal is set to close perhaps within three weeks, after which point they could seek an extension or even terminate the agreement.

It’s unclear if the Yahoo name will live on for any part of the internet business that will be run by AOL. However, a big new branding campaign is expected in the coming week, along with more details about the new company.

Yahoo declined to comment on the new name. While an AOL spokeswoman neither confirmed nor denied the new name, she told us to watch for the “launching” of the new company.

“In the summer of 2017, you can bet we will be launching one of the most disruptive brand companies in digital,” she said.

Buz Investors  – Greengro Technologies, Inc. (OTC:GRNH), a world-class provider of eco-friendly green technologies, today launched a new internal company division called GenoBreeding that will direct a Greengro initiative to bring to the market cutting edge cannabis varieties through the application of modern plant breeding technologies.

This initiative from Greengro is in keeping with the cannabis industry’s increasing reliance on genetics – heredity and the variation of inherited characteristic in plants – to help growers create better, more powerful and sometimes personalized commercial cannabis strains that share desirable inherited characteristics.

“This initiative includes the use of conventional and modern plant breeding techniques to develop high quality cannabis varieties for medical use,” said Greengro CEO James Haas.

Greengro is working with a team of specialized plant scientists and geneticists to develop cannabis varieties that possess improved levels of key compositional traits (e.g., THC and CBD) by using innovative breeding technologies, according to Haas, who said that Greengro has had its cannabis genetics program in development for a number of years.

Greengro’s GenoBreeding group is focused on developing breeding tools such as molecular markers to enable breeding decisions and processes to achieve top-tier plant performance in a sustainable manner.

“Our collaboration through this initiative with leading scientists enables us to utilize proven crop breeding techniques in the indoor production of cannabis, while at the same time modernizing Greengro’s existing efforts to produce original products for California’s cannabis market,” said Haas, who indicated that the GenoBreeding division will eventually be spun off into its own company.

“We’re developing market leading elite cannabis genetics with innovative breeding solutions,” explained Haas.

Greengro’s GenoBreeding initiative combines elite cannabis genetics with state-of-the-art plant breeding methods to maximize yields and expression of desired traits.  Key elements in the breeding program include:

  • Development of molecular markers for desired traits and implementation of marker-assisted selection to reduce breeding cycle time.
  • Application of genomic systems to enable breeding decisions and processes to achieve sustainable, top-tier plant performance.

The goal of Greengro’s GenoBreeding initiative in using applied genetics in cannabis production is to promote stability and predictability in hybridized strains.  Stability refers to minimizing variability and maximizing predictability found in the offspring of parent plant generations.

Genetics is helping growers create better, more powerful and sometimes personalized commercial cannabis strains.

This process involves the cannabis genome (the complete set of genes and genetic material present in the plant), genotype (the plant’s complete heritable genetic identity), and phenotype (the set of a strain’s expressed, observable characteristics resulting from the interaction of its genotype with the environment).

Variability, a consequence of strain genetic instability, refers to the range of different phenotypes that will express when hybridizing two different plant strains.  Desirable predictability refers to the expected distribution ratio of a plant’s different phenotypes expressed as a unique strain.

Zimbabwe Launches New Currency, Called Bond Notes

Zimbabwe has launched its own currency for the first time since 2009, aiming to meet a worsening cash shortage.

On Monday, Reserve Bank of Zimbabwe introduced the new currency, called bond notes. The bond note is worth one US dollar, which is the country’s main currency since its local dollar was scrapped seven years ago due to hefty inflation.

The newly introduced cash substitute is legal tender in Zimbabwe, but is not valid outside the country. Initially, the banks would circulate an amount worth $10 million in the system in two and five dollar denominations. The notes’ release reportedly will be controlled, allowing for weekly withdrawal of $150 worth.

Zimbabwe Launches New Currency

As per reports, the Government expects that the bond notes would stop the flow of US dollars going overseas amid the ongoing cash shortage.

The move was first announced in May, and has resulted in huge protests against President Mugabe.

According to business groups, the move would help boost economic growth, while major opposition parties and civil society groups are planning further protests.

Before withdrawing the Zimbabwean dollar, the enormous inflation had caused an egg to cost 50 billion Zimbabwean dollars in 2008. A loaf of bread then cost the price of 12 new cars ten years before, while a 100 trillion dollar note was enough for a weekly bus ticket, BBC reported.
