Flashbay, industry leader in promotional technology products, is joining forces with the WILD Foundation and Kayapo Project to support the conservation efforts of the Kayapo territory. Kayapo land lies within the heart of the Amazon rainforest, an area of land that is larger than 50% of all countries in the world. It is home to indigenous tribes, critically endangered species of animals and plants, and provides 20% of the world's global oxygen supply. Alarmingly, 1/5 of the Amazon rainforest has already been demolished, yet the Kayapo have achieved more through their safeguarding efforts than any other organisation or group in history. Flashbay's partnership with the WILD Foundation and Kayapo Project could not come at a more convenient time. Our donation will inject embattled Kayapo communities with urgently needed resources to defend valuable rainforest habitat from deforestation. It will contribute towards territorial monitoring and control that allows the Kayapo people visibility of the Amazon borders to pinpoint invasions. These illegal and aggressive invaders include fishermen, ranchers, loggers, miners and colonists. "The Kayapo are the last effective bastion of opposition against a relentless cycle of destruction of important and spectacularly beautiful rainforest habitat in this part of Brazil," says Karl-Phillip Schlossstein, Flashbay Co-founder. "Our entire Flashbay team is immensely proud to partner with the WILD Foundation and the Kayapo to protect this vital resource and our planet." For over 40 years, the WILD Foundation has strengthened environmental leadership capacity by working across national, institutional, and cultural divides to build a common vision for the conservation of wild nature. Our partnership represents an ongoing effort to strengthen environmental causes with insight and innovative thinking from the business and entrepreneurial sectors. At Flashbay, we recognise the crucial importance of preservation, longevity and sustainability. We have always strived to make a positive impact by operating efficiently, lowering our carbon footprint and sourcing sustainable materials. Our support of sustainable business practices is something that we promise to help the WILD Foundation and Kayapo project with. Our aim is to help promote their brand, cause and message through widespread distribution of paperless conservation and marketing material through reusable technology products. Flashbay endeavour to extend this message to all of our customers, offering digital solutions for their promotional technology and branding needs over pamphlets, leaflets and other disposable media. Since our formation in 2003 we have specialised in on-demand manufacturing of custom-branded promotional technology products and have proudly served many tens of thousands of customers worldwide. Even after more than a decade of growth we are just as excited about what lies ahead for us as we were in 2003. By continuously developing our products at the cutting-edge of promotional technology, Flashbay remains, as ever, perfectly positioned to meet the needs of our clients from the smallest businesses to the largest of organisations. As the heart of the global wilderness community for over 40 years, the WILD Foundation protects wilderness while meeting the needs of human communities, working across cultures and boundaries by collaborating with local peoples, organizations, the private sector, and governments to create dynamic practical projects, inspiring solutions and communications initiatives. The Kayapo are the guardians of the rainforest. For 30 years they've been on the frontline of rainforest defense, protecting the world's richest ecosystem. The Kayapo must defend more than 2,500km of border of their demarcated lands against invasions by ranchers, colonists, loggers and goldminers. 100% of funds donated will go directly to Kayapo rainforest preservation projects.

Patent
WILD Inc | Date: 2013-02-26

A method for abandonment of a subsea well includes: fastening a pressure control assembly (PCA) to a subsea wellhead; and deploying a tool string into the PCA. The tool string includes a packer and an upper perforator located above the packer. The method further includes: closing a bore of the PCA above the tool string with a solid barrier; and setting the packer against an inner casing hung from the subsea wellhead. The method further includes, while the PCA bore is closed, perforating a wall of the inner casing by operating the upper perforator. The method further includes injecting cement slurry into an inner annulus formed between the inner casing and an outer casing hung from the subsea wellhead.

A method for abandonment of a subsea well includes: setting a packer of a lower cementing tool against a bore of an inner casing at a location adjacent to an outer casing; fastening a pressure control assembly (PCA) to the subsea wellhead; hanging an upper cementing tool from the PCA and stabbing the upper cementing tool into a polished bore receptacle of the lower cementing tool; perforating a wall of the inner casing below the packer; perforating the inner casing wall above the packer by operating a perforator of the upper cementing tool; and pumping cement slurry followed by a release plug through bores of the cementing tools. The release plug engages and launches a cementing plug from the lower cementing tool. The cementing plug drives the cement slurry through the perforations below the packer and into an inner annulus formed between the inner casing and the outer casing.


An apparatus and method for dispensing a product or sample in response to the detection of a selected facial expression such as a smile. A computerized device having a camera and utilizing facial recognition and facial expression determining software is connected to a mechanical dispensing unit to dispense one product sample to a customer during a predetermined period of time such as one day.

A method for sealing a well includes: placing an obstruction in a bore of an inner tubular string; forming an opening through a wall of the inner tubular string above the obstruction; mixing a resin and a hardener to form a sealant having a density greater than a density of fluid present in the bore and present in an annulus formed between the inner tubular string and an outer tubular string; and injecting the sealant into the annulus. The sealant falls down the annulus to the opening. A portion of the sealant is diverted through the opening and into the bore. The sealant cures to form a balanced plug in the annulus and the bore.
