*Notice to Shareholders in the United States*
U.S. shareholders are advised that the shares in Technopolis are not listed on a U.S. securities exchange and that Technopolis is not subject to the periodic reporting requirements of the U.S. Securities Exchange Act of 1934, as amended (the “*Exchange Act*”), and is not required to, and does not, file any reports with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission (the “*SEC*”) thereunder. The Tender Offer is made to Technopolis’ shareholders resident in the United States on the same terms and conditions as those made to all other shareholders of Technopolis to whom an offer is made. Any information documents, including the tender offer document, are being disseminated to U.S. shareholders on a basis comparable to the method that such documents are provided to Technopolis’ other shareholders.
The Tender Offer is made for the issued and outstanding shares in Technopolis, a Finnish company. Information distributed in connection with the Tender Offer is subject to disclosure requirements of Finland, which are different from those of the United States. The financial statements and financial information included in this stock exchange release or in the tender offer document have been prepared in accordance with applicable accounting standards in Finland, which may not be comparable to the financial statements or financial information of U.S. companies.
It may be difficult for Technopolis’ shareholders to enforce their rights and any claim they may have arising under the federal securities laws, since the Offeror and Technopolis are located in non-U.S. jurisdictions, and some or all of their respective officers and directors may be residents of non-U.S. jurisdictions. Technopolis’ shareholders may not be able to sue the Offeror or Technopolis or their respective officers or directors in a non-U.S. court for violations of the U.S. securities laws.

The Tender Offer is made in the United States pursuant to Section 14(e) and Regulation 14E under the Exchange Act as a “Tier II” tender offer, and otherwise in accordance with the requirements of Finnish law. Accordingly, the Tender Offer will be subject to disclosure and other procedural requirements, including with respect to withdrawal rights, offer timetable, settlement procedures and timing of payments that are different from those applicable under U.S. domestic tender offer procedures and law.
To the extent permissible under applicable law or regulations, the Offeror and its affiliates or brokers (acting as agents for the Offeror or its affiliates, as applicable) may from time to time, and other than pursuant to the Tender Offer, directly or indirectly, purchase or arrange to purchase, Technopolis shares or any securities that are convertible into, exchangeable for or exercisable for such Technopolis shares. To the extent information about such purchases or arrangements to purchase is made public in Finland, such information will be disclosed by means of a press release or other means reasonably calculated to inform U.S. shareholders of Technopolis of such information. In addition, the financial advisers to the Offeror may also engage in ordinary course trading activities in securities of Technopolis, which may include purchases or arrangements to purchase such securities.
The receipt of cash pursuant to the Tender Offer by a U.S. shareholder may be a taxable transaction for U.S. federal income tax purposes and under applicable U.S. state and local, as well as foreign and other, tax laws. Each shareholder is urged to consult its independent professional adviser immediately regarding the tax consequences of accepting the Tender Offer.
Neither the SEC nor any U.S. state securities commission has approved or disapproved the Tender Offer, or passed any comment upon the adequacy or completeness of the tender offer document. Any representation to the contrary is a criminal offence in the United States.

Morgan Securities plc, which is authorized by the Prudential Regulation Authority and regulated by the Financial Conduct Authority and the Prudential Regulation Authority in the United Kingdom, is acting as lead financial adviser to the Offeror and no one else in connection with the Tender Offer, and will not regard any other person as its client in relation to the Tender Offer and will not be responsible to anyone other than the Offeror for providing the protection afforded to clients of J.P.

CROP Infrastructure Corp. (CSE:CROP, CSE:CROP.CN, OTCMKTS:CRXPF) says it's just steps away from first revenue as its California tenant "Hempire" in Humboldt has now finished harvesting all of its 30,000 square feet (sq ft) production area. The greenhouses have now been re-populated and the plants are already in flower for a further Q4 harvest, the pot-focused company said. The crop tally stands at around 2,100 pounds, which consists of around 300 pounds of dried flower, around 1,100 pounds, which is currently drying, and a further 700 pounds of lower tier production for extracts. Steps away "CROP is now only steps away from first revenue as the tenant's sales cycle has been initiated. Of particular significance too, we can also report that the tenant's temporary cannabis licenses have now been converted to a permanent California state license," said CEO Michael Yorke. "CROP looks forward to having its California operations rapidly becoming profitable." The cannabis will now be trimmed and packaged for various distributors the tenant is contracting with, the company added. Crop strains are 707 OG, Forbidden Fruit, Green Crack, Birthday Cake, and Girl Scout Cookie. In addition, the tenant has added a new sought-after strain called Insane OG. CROP also noted that it was waiting for permits to build out 12 proprietary light supplemented greenhouses totaling 44,000 square feet. Last week, CROP updated on activity in Italy, saying it had expanded its footprint in the country and has now leased an 87,120 sq ft greenhouse via its joint venture with XHemplar. Italian joint venture In June this year, Crop unveiled the new Italian joint venture. It owns 30% of the venture under the name of Xhemplar and is developing a 522,000 sq ft project in the north-eastern region of Italy. CROP provided an initial investment of €500,000. XHemplar is a joint venture between CROP Infrastructure, Alto Holdings Ltd, Quantum Flux and the AnCaPa SRL of the prominent Castiglione family. The resulting cannabis will be processed and sold into international CBD (cannabidiol) markets under the white label, the venture's house name XHEMPLAR and CROP brands TIFFANY CBD and HEMPIRE ITALIA.

2018 Global CR RepTrak® 100 Ranking Reveals New Era of Corporate Responsibility – Encompassing Good Will, Good Values and Good Business
Boston, MA, Oct. 11, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Reputation Institute (RI), the global leader in Reputation Intelligence, today announced the 2018 Global CR RepTrak® rankings. Google tops the ranking with the best reputation for overall corporate responsibility (CR) closely followed by Disney and LEGO. Five new companies in the Top 10 of Global CR this year include Natura, Novo Nordisk, Canon, Michelin and IKEA.This year’s top 10 companies with the best reputation for corporate responsibility worldwide are:
1. Google [NASDAQ: GOOGL]
2. Walt Disney Company [NYSE: DIS]
3. The LEGO Group
4. Natura [BVMF: NATU3]
5. Novo Nordisk [NYSE: NVO]
6. Microsoft [NASDAQ: MSFT]
7. Bosch [NSE: BOSCHLTD]
8. Canon [NYSE: CAJ]
9. Michelin [OTCMKTS: MGDDY]
The largest corporate reputation study of its kind, the Global CR RepTrak is based on more than 230,000 individual ratings from among the informed general public worldwide. The survey quantifies the public’s perception of corporate responsibility, based on the emotional bond stakeholders have with companies, and reveals how this deep connection can drive supportive behavior such as the intent to purchase, benefit of the doubt, likelihood to recommend, and willingness to work for the company.
“To win on reputation through corporate responsibility, it is integral to practice what you preach in terms of corporate brand purpose and stand behind what you say and do,” said Ana Angelovska, Research Director at Reputation Institute. “Companies that rank highest are those that spark relevant and authentic dialogue about responsible behavior.”
“This year’s results demonstrate an important inflection point. We are now in an era when companies need to go beyond just social responsibility – they must execute on fiscal, social, environmental, and employer responsibility,” said Stephen Hahn-Griffiths, Chief Reputation Officer at Reputation Institute. “There is unique opportunity for a company to raise the bar and deliver on higher expectations for a holistic commitment to corporate responsibility.”
The 2018 ranking reveals the central importance of responsible leadership in supporting a CR agenda. Companies within the CR Top 10 have CEOs who are seen as responsible, behave ethically, and care about social causes. Their scores on the measures of responsibility are significantly higher than those companies that did not make it into the CR RepTrak Top 100 ranking. In a time of CEO activism, companies with familiar and visible CEOs experience increased perception of CR.
The values of Google’s CEO, Sundar Pichai, help elevate the company’s reputation for corporate responsibility. Google also benefits from its performance in the Workplace category of the recent study; it is the only company with a strong Workplace score and is a leader in equal opportunities, employee well-being and incentives. Google also achieved #1 in the Citizenship category.
Google’s success is even more remarkable in the context of reputational challenges for the technology sector as a whole in 2018. Of all sectors, the technology industry experienced the largest decline in corporate responsibility rankings, with a -3.1-point decline in the CR Index, led by Workplace (-3.9), Citizenship (-2.9) and Governance (-2.7).
Among the top companies, the LEGO Group is recognized as the leader in Governance and is the only company to have a strong score in both Governance and Citizenship. Novo Nordisk is recognized as the top pharmaceutical company for CR and is the only pharma company in the top 30.

A longtime film industry veteran, Maylen Dominguez is bringing a unique perspective to an industry that critically needs it.
NEW YORK (PRWEB) October 11, 2018
Earlier this year, the New York Film Academy (NYFA) welcomed Maylen Dominguez as the new Campus Director of the South Beach location. Dominguez previously served as Chair of Filmmaking at NYFA South Beach, and has continued in that capacity in addition to her new role. A longtime film industry veteran, Maylen is bringing a unique perspective to an industry that critically needs it.
Puerto Rican-born Maylen explains, “It’s inspiring when you can see someone of a similar background in a position of influence.” She adds, “If you are a little girl and you see a complex representation of different cultural backgrounds on-screen, it allows room for that possibility to exist in your life.” Maylen was instrumental in organizing a Women’s History Month Industry Panel at NYFA South Beach, which featured a diverse range of industry professionals -- all women -- who discussed the perils and advantages of being a woman in the film industry.
Maylen Dominguez holds a Master of Fine Arts degree in Writing for Screen and Television from the University of Southern California, as well as a Bachelor of Arts degree in Literature and Film from Yale University. She is one of the five original founders of the Orlando Film Festival, and is a member of the Advisory Board of the Florida Film Festival. She has produced the web series No Good Deeds and directed the documentary The Love Store as well as a number of short films. She won the Zaki Gordon Award for Excellence in Screenwriting. Her screenplay Altar Boy is in the process of being produced.
After beginning her career in Beverly Hills, she worked for Galan Entertainment, which produces content for Latin American television and films such as The ALMA Awards, Los Beltran, and Padre Alberto. Maylen then joined Minnie Driver (Good Will Hunting, Grosse Pointe Blank) and her production company, Two Drivers Production, as Director of Development, where she had the opportunity to develop film projects and work on the production sets of Return To Me, Beautiful, and Slow Burn. She previously served as Program Director for over five years at another institution of higher learning.
Maylen has been at the New York Film Academy for over three years, all in South Beach. Explaining why the city has always felt like home to her, Maylen comments, “I have a very special connection to Miami, this is the place where my father landed when he was 12 years old and exiled from Cuba. It’s the place where my grandfather in his mid-50s studied for his medical license and became a doctor again.”
NYFA Senior Executive Vice President David Klein remarks, “We are so thrilled to have Ms. Dominguez in the position of Campus Director for our Florida location." He continues, “Her diverse background in the entertainment industry, her significant experience in the education sector, and her connection to the Miami community -- all together -- make her an ideal leader for our students, staff, and faculty in Miami.”

Rome, Italy, Oct 11, 2018 / 12:00 pm (CNA/EWTN News).- Though it sits just steps from St. Peter’s Basilica, it goes unseen by the thousands of people that pass by every day. In a city of churches, it’s a church that can’t be found by accident, but must be sought out. And many do.
It is St. Lawrence in Piscibus, a tiny and simple church from the 12th century, tucked behind buildings which make it undetectable from the main thoroughfare to St. Peter’s Basilica.
The church has gone through many evolutions over the centuries. Eventually, it was deconsecrated and used as a study hall and sculptor’s studio, until in the 1980s Pope St. John Paul II asked that it be transformed into an international youth center.
Today it has become the thriving Centro San Lorenzo, affectionately called the “Centro,” where young Romans, and those passing through on pilgrimage, can stop by for prayer, Mass, and other spiritual and social activities.
As the events start up again after the summer break, now under the apostolate of the Shalom Catholic Community, the center has begun offering daily adoration and prayer for the successful work of the Synod of Bishops, taking place just minutes down the street inside the Vatican.
The Center’s chaplain, Fr. Cristiano Pinheiro, said people of all kinds pass through the center and take part in a “chain of intercession,” that includes Shalom missionaries, young people, priests, and even bishops attending the synod.
During the entire month of October 2018, the church is holding adoration of the Blessed Sacrament from 9:00 am to 5:30 pm Monday through Friday, followed by Mass at 6:00 pm; it is open to anyone who wants to stop by. Two Saturdays of the month they will also host a special program of prayer and fraternity.
Archbishop Peter Comensoli of Melbourne, who is in Rome to take part in the youth synod as a bishop delegate, said he found the church through his connection with the Shalom community.
“It’s a particularly beautiful church in my mind for an Italian church,” he told CNA. “It’s very plain and simple and the focus is directly on the Blessed Sacrament in the sanctuary area; it’s lovely.”
“It’s wonderful that there are people just praying, just praying for what’s happening in the synod and the work that’s going on here. It’s a great gift,” he said.
The San Lorenzo Center was founded by Pope St. John Paul II, who discovered the church of St. Lawrence in Piscibus – owned by the Vatican since 1941 – and thought it could be put to the service of youth. He reconsecrated the church with a special Mass in March 1983.
A few years later, it also became the home of the original wooden cross of World Youth Day (begun in 1985) and an icon of Salus Populi Romani, a copy of the ancient painting which hangs in the Basilica of St. Mary Major, and depicts the Blessed Virgin Mary in her title as patroness of Rome.
The small church also bears a San Damiano cross, a replica of the one hanging in the Basilica of St. Clare in Assisi, Italy, which is believed to be the cross St. Francis prayed before when he received the request from God to rebuild the Church.
One manager of Centro San Lorenzo, Jhoanna Climacosa, 27, said she finds it a “true joy,” to serve in that place, which is “at the heart of the Church, at the heart of Rome, and through which pass many pilgrims from every part of the world.”
Prior to its new life as a place of evangelization and welcome for pilgrims, especially youth, the church spent a few decades as a study center and the studio of artist Pericle Fazzini, who completed his large bronze sculpture of “the Resurrection” in 1977, and which stands at the back of the Vatican’s Pope Paul VI hall.
The façade of St. Lawrence in Piscibus was hidden from sight when part of the area surrounding the Vatican, Rome’s Borgo neighborhood, was destroyed in the late 1930s to 1940s to construct the grand thoroughfare of Via della Conciliazione, which leads up to the main square and entrance to St. Peter’s Basilica.
The church was preserved from demolition, but a large palazzo was built around it, marking the start of the Pio XII Square in the style of an ancient Greek “propylaea,” an architectural term which means a gateway building.
After different renovations over the centuries, one which gave it an ornate Baroque design, for structural and financial reasons it was eventually returned to what is believed to be its original, bare-stone Romanesque appearance.
Around the same years that John Paul II founded the Center, the Shalom Community was beginning in Brazil, though this is the first time their movement has been given the care of the youth center.
Cristiano knew the place from years earlier, as a seminarian studying in Rome. “Somehow I always felt connected with the church,” he told CNA. “I never imagined I would come to work here and to evangelize here.” His first Mass in Rome, after being ordained in Brazil, was at the Center in 2015.
“Now it’s a new time, a Kairos of the youth of the Church,” he said, referencing a Greek word which means “opportunity,” or “a propitious moment for decision or action.”
“We feel honored and we feel called by God to be at the service of the Church exactly at this time,” he said, explaining that he believes there is “a very difficult spiritual war taking place right now.”
“With the scandals and difficulties, God’s Enemy doesn’t want to see this Kairos happening in the Church. So, we need to fight against it, which we do by praying,” he stated.
Maylis Vigoureux, 25, from Provence, France, is acting as a month-long volunteer missionary in the Centro San Lorenzo. She said she finds it powerful to pray with the World Youth Day cross and with the icon of Mary, and to “intercede for all the young and especially for the synod.”
Before she arrived in Rome, she said her friends explained to her that you “cannot arrive in the church just by chance, that you have to know [the way] to come here.” Reported by CNA 5 minutes ago.
