MyECheck Updates on Progress of Mobile Payment Apps Sep 22, 2014 10:15PM

FOLSOM, Calif., Sept. 22, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- MyECheck, Inc. (OTC PK: MYEC), the leader in electronic checks, today announced that it has confirmed new relationships that will enable the launch of its suite of mobile payment apps into the market.  The Company had originally announced its plan to launch mobile payment apps in the summer of 2014, however after a service partner delay, the Company sought new partners and has since established the required new relationships to move forward with the market launch.  

Due to the freeze in the payments industry for the months of November and December, MyECheck expects all the apps to be available for download and use in January 2015.  MyECheck payment apps can be used by anyone with a smart mobile device by simply downloading and registering the app, enabling real time secure mobile commerce.  The MyECheck mobile payment solutions do not require any special hardware, and will work with all smart Apple and Android devices.

The MyECheck personal payment app is a mobile extension of its user's bank account, and eliminates the need to carry checks, cash and cards allowing anyone with a smartphone to make instant payments at no cost to them. 

The MyECheck downloadable merchant point of sale app allows any business to accept mobile payments at their point of sale with no POS hardware or NFC required, and without interchange fees.  MyECheck payments are a low flat fee only, clear faster, work with more customers, don't have chargebacks, and have proven to be more secure than any other mobile payment system or method.  Payment apps can be downloaded and used in real time with no delay.

MyECheck has sold a number of licenses for its mobile payment app technology, including custom-built payment apps with unique features for specific industries, including the legal marijuana industry.  The new relationships recently forged will also enable MyECheck to begin delivering services to its licensees and its wholly owned subsidiary, GreenPay, LLC.

Huntington Beach, California (PRWEB) September 22, 2014

Freightgate, a global provider of Logistics Cloud Solutions, supports carbon footprint initiatives with improved carbon emission modeling in its Logistics Cloud. The Logistics Cloud, known as the Freightgate Universe, contains execution level, real-time carbon footprint functionality that will help shippers and carriers capture, analyze and optimize the carbon footprint of their logistics and supply chains.

Shippers and transportation carriers are looking for meaningful ways to capture, analyze and optimize the carbon footprint of their logistics and supply chains. Coinciding with Climate Week September 22-28 and the UN Climate Summit on September 23, Global Solution Networks has released major research on addressing the climate crisis. This new report is available on the Global Solution Networks website http://www.gsnetworks.org . In the United States, emissions rose 2.9 percent, after declining in recent years according to new numbers, reported by a tracking initiative called The Global Carbon Project http://www.globalcarbonproject.org.

Using the Freightgate's Supply Chain Carbon-Emission Modeling, a company will be able to analyze different rate and routing scenarios that compare operational, financial and environmental impact of their supply chain in real-time. The results will help determine which scenario is environmentally sound while at the same time being financially and operationally viable. The carbon footprint tracing feature offers customers transparency on the environmental impact of their logistics movements.

"We want companies to be able look at their logistics from the carbon perspective, so we are providing them with the tools to do in-house analysis on their carbon emissions. Countries and policy makers are progressively dictating how global businesses should manage their environmental impact by imposing more carbon emissions targets and setting a price on carbon emission offsets to encourage a shift to cleaner energy technologies. Understanding the carbon emission impact of your supply chain decisions and carrier routing alternatives is critical to conducting global trade. Freightgate's technology provides real-time, execution level calculation of carbon emission across modes and routing alternatives, paired with multidimensional CO-modelling and our un-matched multi-leg dynamic routing and scalability we offer truly exceptional " states Martin Hubert, Freightgate CEO and President.

Taiwan Challenging Japan and the United States in the Global "World Charity Cup" Video Game Competition Sep 22, 2014 10:05PM

TAIPEI, TAIWAN -- (Marketwired) -- 09/22/14 -- Surprising the over-confident and favored video game players around the world, a group of 250 Taiwanese children are threatening to take the lead in the finals of the Adventures of Ai's "World Charity Cup" video game competition (www.adventuresofai.com). The talented Taiwanese kids came from nowhere and have shocked more experienced players in China, Japan, Russia and the United States.

"It's an outlier," stated Kalani Streicher, designer of video games such as Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back, and Indiana Jones. "I'm not sure Taiwan can hang in there with the big countries in the long run."

"Not so!" said Craig Bouchard, New York Times Bestselling Author and creator of "The Adventures of Ai" movement, the most watched transmedia event in the world 2014. "I've visited Taiwan many times and the Taiwanese kids are capable of beating all the big countries. Taiwan is disciplined."

Bouchard's project has broken media models and become one of the most followed media projects of recent years. His new children's novel, "The Adventures of Ai", along with soundtrack music and the corresponding smash video game, are subtly designed to unlock the potential of children and make them aware that they can make a difference in the world. The novel is translated into Mandarin and is available, along with the free game, on Apple iOS7, Google, and Samsung platforms.

The final round of the "World Charity Cup" video game competition launched at an event live streamed around the world September 9 at the world's largest Ronald McDonald House in Chicago, Illinois.

Kids in over 30 countries are competing in The Adventures of Ai video game to support 20 charities around the world. In Taiwan, the Ai project benefits Maria Social Welfare Foundation and the Taipei Orphan Welfare Foundation.

Twenty global charities, including Ronald McDonald House Charities of Chicagoland and Northwest Indiana, Misericordia, the James R. Jordan Foundation International and Ann & Robert H. Lurie Children's Hospital in the United States; Operation Smile In China; College Women's Association of Japan in Japan; Magic Bus and CRY in India; the Children's Leukaemia and Cancer Research Foundation in Australia; and the Child Cancer Foundation in New Zealand, benefit from the kids in their country winning the intense video game competition.

"I want Taiwan to know it can win!" said Robert Li, "Adventures of Ai" project manager in Taiwan. "'The Adventures of Ai' movement demonstrates the value of helping others, which the Maria Social Welfare Foundation and the Taipei Orphan Welfare Foundation do every single day. Taiwanese kids can make a difference in the world. I hope we realize this and show the entire video game world how special we are."

Li also noted, "The winning country must have 1000 players participating by the end of the competition, which is December 31st of this year. So we in Taiwan have some team building to do. Come on kids -- Go Taiwan!"

Bouchard will award the winning country's charities 10 percent of the "Adventures of Ai" global revenue. Additionally, he will donate 10 percent of the project's net revenues in each country to that country's participating charities.

"We grow up believing the world is too big for any one person to make a difference. That's simply not true. I wrote The Adventures of Ai to challenge the kids to be philanthropists," said Craig Bouchard, creator of the Adventures of Ai. "The truth is we can all make a difference. To parents: let's unlock the potential of kids in the far corners of the world. To kids: please play the game hard to benefit sick kids in your country. But remember: It's one world, one team."

In 2007, the Association was restructured to develop more services to orphans, and this Foundation has been established. Our mission is to help orphans to grow up happier and healthier and pursue their dreams. Up to 2014, we have 10 offices nationwide in Taiwan. Our staffs and counselors have delivered our services to over 6,000 orphans.

About the Adventures of Ai The Adventures of Ai is an ebook written by international entrepreneur and New York Times best-selling author Craig Bouchard. The story is a part non-fiction and part fiction fantasy subtly designed to prepare pre-teen girls and boys for the pressures they will encounter as they grow up. Incorporating art, history, poetry, music and mathematics, the unique novel encourages children to unlock their potential. Released in six languages, The Adventures of Ai is a story of empowerment that transcends boundaries.

The book's corresponding video game is based on the novel and created by Kalani Streicher, producer of the ground-breaking games Star Wars, The Empire Strikes Back and the Indiana Jones games for Lucas Films. The Adventures of Ai game is an engaging experience featuring a soundtrack produced by 15-time Grammy Award winner Humberto Gatica, and is available for iOS, Android and Kindle. For more information, visit www.adventuresofai.com.

About the World Charity Cup When children play Adventures of Ai, their scores are recorded on the Adventures of Ai website for the benefit of their country total. Ten percent of net revenues earned in each country during the competition will be donated to the participating charities within that country. In addition, ten percent of the global revenue from the book, game and music earned during the competition will be donated to the charities in the country that records the highest average player scores. Thus, any country can win the "World Charity Cup," and every child playing the game matters.
