ROSEN, GLOBALLY RESPECTED INVESTOR COUNSEL, Encourages Rite Aid Corporation Investors to Secure Counsel Before Important Deadline in Securities Class Action Commenced by the Firm – RAD

NEW YORK, March 31, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — WHY: Rosen Law Firm, a global investor rights law firm, reminds purchasers of the securities of Rite Aid Corporation (NYSE: RAD) between April 26, 2018 and March 13, 2023, both dates inclusive (the “Class Period”), of the important May 19, 2023 lead plaintiff deadline in the securities class action commenced by the firm.

SO WHAT: If you purchased Rite Aid securities during the Class Period you may be entitled to compensation without payment of any out of pocket fees or costs through a contingency fee arrangement.

WHAT TO DO NEXT: To join the Rite Aid class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=9388 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action. A class action lawsuit has already been filed. If you wish to serve as lead plaintiff, you must move the Court no later than May 19, 2023. A lead plaintiff is a representative party acting on behalf of other class members in directing the litigation.

WHY ROSEN LAW: We encourage investors to select qualified counsel with a track record of success in leadership roles. Often, firms issuing notices do not have comparable experience, resources or any meaningful peer recognition. Many of these firms do not actually litigate securities class actions, but are merely middlemen that refer clients or partner with law firms that actually litigate the cases. Be wise in selecting counsel. The Rosen Law Firm represents investors throughout the globe, concentrating its practice in securities class actions and shareholder derivative litigation. Rosen Law Firm has achieved the largest ever securities class action settlement against a Chinese Company. Rosen Law Firm was Ranked No. 1 by ISS Securities Class Action Services for number of securities class action settlements in 2017. The firm has been ranked in the top 4 each year since 2013 and has recovered hundreds of millions of dollars for investors. In 2019 alone the firm secured over $438 million for investors. In 2020, founding partner Laurence Rosen was named by law360 as a Titan of Plaintiffs’ Bar. Many of the firm’s attorneys have been recognized by Lawdragon and Super Lawyers.

DETAILS OF THE CASE: According to the lawsuit, defendants throughout the Class Period made false and/or misleading statements and/or failed to disclose that: (1) Until at least June 2019, Rite Aid filled at least hundreds of thousands of unlawful prescriptions for controlled substances that lacked a legitimate medical purpose, including for potentially lethal opioids such as oxycodone and fentanyl; (2) Rite Aid pharmacists filled these prescriptions despite clear “red flags” that indicated that the prescriptions were unlawful; (3) Rite Aid ignored evidence that its stores were dispensing unlawful prescriptions, and intentionally deleted internal notes about suspicious prescribers written by concerned pharmacists; (4) by knowingly filling unlawful prescriptions for controlled substances, Rite Aid violated the Controlled Substances Act and, where Rite Aid sought reimbursement from federal healthcare programs, also violated the False Claims Act; (5) as a result, it was at risk of prosecution by federal authorities such as the United States Department of Justice (“DOJ”) and (6) as a result, Defendants’ statements about its business, operations, and prospects, were materially false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis at all times. When the true details entered the market, the lawsuit claims that investors suffered damages.

To join the Rite Aid class action, go to https://rosenlegal.com/submit-form/?case_id=9388 or call Phillip Kim, Esq. toll-free at 866-767-3653 or email pkim@rosenlegal.com or cases@rosenlegal.com for information on the class action.

No Class Has Been Certified. Until a class is certified, you are not represented by counsel unless you retain one. You may select counsel of your choice. You may also remain an absent class member and do nothing at this point. An investor’s ability to share in any potential future recovery is not dependent upon serving as lead plaintiff.

ScamAdviser Coin ‘Scams’ the Internet for April Fools

UK’s Companies House lacks safeguards to identify investment scams

AMSTERDAM, NETHERLANDS / ACCESSWIRE / March 31, 2023 / To prove how easy it is for anyone to launch a scam site, the Global Anti Scam Alliance and ScamAdviser launched ‘ScamAdviser Coin’ in the lead-up to April Fool’s Day 2023. The goal of this campaign was to highlight the importance of forming better policies to combat scammers.

Last year, nearly 300 million consumers lost more than $55 billion, according to the Global State of Scams 2022 report. Especially, investment scams continued to rise, caused by digitalization, high inflation, and the increasing cost of living.

Within a matter of days, a website was set up that promised investors 100% returns in 14 days. Setting up the site was just $250, including purchasing a website template, registering the domain name ‘scamadviser.club‘ and purchasing website hosting.

UK’s Companies House lacks a Due Diligence process

To create a sense of trust, a fictitious company named ‘ScamAdviser Coin Limited‘ was registered in the UK’s Companies House Registry, using as Directors names the notorious fraudsters Charles Ponzi and Bernard Madoff for just $15.

This is possible as the Companies House itself states, “Companies House does not verify the accuracy of the information filed”. However, few, if any, people know that Companies House does not do any due diligence. Many people, especially from abroad, believe that if a company is registered in the United Kingdom, it must be legit.

Promoting the Scam on Facebook and Google

The fake investment website was even advertised on Facebook for a brief period before being reported by users. The ads were disapproved by Google’s search engine advertising platform, citing their policies regarding ‘Unacceptable business practices’.

Several ‘experts’ on a popular freelancing platform offered to help advertise the scheme on Facebook and Google. Their advice: You need to “warm up” a Google Adword or Facebook account. After three weeks and not using specific keywords like “coin”, it’s easy to promote any kind of investment scam.

The Result: $11,000 earned in 10 days

ScamAdviser Coin only has been up for 10 days. Many could not spot the signs of a scam as 144 users signed up to join the waitlist for the program, which was supposedly set to launch on 1 April 2023. With the users pledging to invest a total of $11,010, the scheme would have generated an ROI of 4400% for the scammer.

Jorij Abraham, General Manager of GASA, said regarding the campaign, “For only $250, you can not only set up an investment scam but also a legitimate-looking company. The way Companies House operates is hurting consumers. Many believe that a company registered in the UK must be trustworthy. Instead, it seems to be the opposite.”

Bybit Launches Optimized ETH Staking Ahead of Ethereum’s Shanghai Upgrade

DUBAI, United Arab Emirates – Media OutReach – 31 March 2023 – Bybit, the world’s third most visited crypto exchange, launched its new Web3 Staking Pool today, enabling users to take advantage of the exchange’s uncomplicated ETH staking options in time for Ethereum network’s much anticipated Shanghai upgrade.

The staking pool drastically simplifies the process of adding liquidity to premier decentralized finance protocol Curve Finance from 11 steps to just three and saves transaction fees, too. The added benefits could lead to an ETH staking APR of up to 6.5%. And Bybit users don’t even need to buy ETH as the product can be accessed using BTC, USDT and USDC balances.

According to Ben Zhou, co-founder and CEO of Bybit, “By introducing our Web3 Staking Pool via a dedicated landing page, we are making it easier for users to interact with decentralized finance and gain more rewards for their assets. Essentially, we are offering single-sided staking, which boosts the APR of ETH.”

“The highly liquid and trading-integrated ETH staking options we will be rolling out around the time of Ethereum’s Shanghai upgrade will open up many new opportunities for our users,” Zhou added. “By offering convenience and transparency, our users will gain more control over how they manage their funds and grow their wealth in the Web3 era.”

Ethereum’s Shanghai upgrade is also the theme of two special trading events hosted by Bybit. Both events kick off on April 4th at 10:00 am (UTC) and run until April 21 and 25, respectively.

Firstly, the ETH Shanghai Upgrade Trading Bash opens the door for Bybit users trading any ETH-related derivatives (perpetuals, inverse or futures contracts) to share in a total prize pool of 450,000 USDC. Secondly, by entering Bybit’s Supreme Scorer 2023, users have the chance to predict the price movement of eight different ETH-related trading pairs and share in the 80,000 USDT bonus pool.

Bybit is proud to offer Web3 integrations that create a simple, streamlined user experience and bring next level opportunities and products to institutions, crypto-natives and newcomers alike.

لماذا تحظى جراحة العيون بتقنية الليزك بشعبية عند المهنيين في دبي

غالبًا ما يجري الرؤساء التنفيذيون والمسؤولون التنفيذيون رفيعو المستوى جراحة العين بتقنية الليزك بهدف تحسين الرؤية والتخلص من الحاجة إلى النظارات أو العدسات اللاصقة

دبي، الإمارات العربية المتحدة – EQS Newswire – 28 مارس 2023 – يتجه مهنيو الأعمال في دبي بشكل متزايد إلى إجراء جراحة العيون باستخدام تقنية الليزك لتحسين الرؤية لديهم وتعزيز إنتاجيتهم في مكان العمل.

وغالبًا ما يجري الرؤساء التنفيذيون والمسؤولون التنفيذيون رفيعو المستوى جراحة العيون بتقنية الليزك لتحسين الرؤية لديهم والتخلص من الحاجة إلى النظارات أو العدسات اللاصقة. وتتشابه الأسباب التي تدفعهم إلى ذلك مع تلك الأسباب الخاصة بالمهنيين الآخرين في الأعمال، وتضم تلك الأسباب تحسين الإنتاجية والثقة ونوعية الحياة بشكل عام.

من الذي يرغب في أن يساوره القلق من أن تؤدي النظارة إلى خلق وهج أثناء مؤتمر متلفز، أو التعارض مع أدائه للتمرين، أو المعاناة من العدسات اللاصقة أثناء رحلة عمل طويلة؟

وفيما يلي بعض الأمثلة على الرؤساء التنفيذيين المؤثرين الذين لا يرتدون النظارات في الأماكن العامة، سواء بسبب حرصهم على الحفاظ على الصورة العامة أو لأسباب شخصية.

  • إيلون ماسك- الرئيس التنفيذي لشركةسبيس إكسوتسلا موتورز
  • مارك زوكربيرج – الرئيس التنفيذي لشركةميتا
  • جيف بيزوس – المؤسس والرئيس التنفيذي السابق لشركة أمازون

والليزك، أو الليزر القرني الموضعي هو إجراء جراحي آمن وغير غازي يصحح مشاكل الرؤية، مثل قصر النظر، وطول النظر، والإستجماتزم. ويرغب المهنيون اللذين يسافرون ويعملون في الإمارات العربية المتحدة في الوصول إلى حل لمشاكل الرؤية لديهم.

وقد علق الدكتور عبد الله نقي، طبيب العيون والمدير التنفيذي لمركز نورث أمريكان لليزك والعيون (https://NorthAmericanLasik.com)، الموجود في دبي، “بالنسبة للمهنيين الذين يتطلعون إلى تحسين رؤيتهم وتعزيز حياتهم المهنية، يمكن أن يكون الليزك خيارًا مغيرًا للحياة”. وأضاف لاحقًا: “يمكن للأفراد، باستخدام جراحة العيون بالليزك، تحقيق رؤية أوضح وأكثر راحة، مما يمكن أن يؤدي إلى زيادة الإنتاجية والثقة في حياتهم المهنية والشخصية على حد سواء”.

ووفقًا للجمعية الأمريكية لجراحة الساد وجراحة العين عن طريق انكسار الأشعة، تُجرى أكثر من 700,000 عملية ليزك كل عام في الولايات المتحدة. ويشير هذا الرقم إلى أن الليزك لا يزال خيارًا شائعًا وآمنًا لتصحيح الرؤية بالليزر لأولئك الذين يسعون إلى تحسين رؤيتهم بل وحياتهم.

يميل العديد من المهنيين في الأعمال إلى الليزك أيضًا بسبب سلامته وموثوقيته. فهذا الإجراء غازي بدرجة طفيفة وعادة ما يستغرق حوالي 15 دقيقة فقط لكل عين، ويعاني معظم المرضى من قدر قليل إلى معدوم من عدم الراحة أثناء الإجراء أو بعده. ويمكن للمرضى العودة إلى العمل واستئناف أنشطتهم الطبيعية في غضون أيام قليلة، حيث يشعر معظمهم بتحسن كبير في الرؤية لديهم في غضون ساعات من تنفيذ هذا الإجراء.

عن العيادة:

يتمتع فريق الجراحين في مركز نورث أمريكان لليزك وجراحة العيون بأكثر من 20 عامًا من الخبرة، وقد أجروا أكثر من 16,000 عملية جراحية للعيون. ويتمثل التزامهم تجاه جميع مرضاهم في تلقيهم العلاج بجودة وموثوقية ومصداقية.

QNB Stars League Week 18 Kicks Off Saturday as Al Duhail Aim to Maintain Lead -1-

Al Sadd face Al Wakrah in Week 18 of the 2022-2023 season QNB Stars League at the Al Wakrah Stadium on Saturday.

Both teams are seeking to win and collect the three points from the confrontation which is expected to witness great excitement.

Al Wakrah are fourth in the table with 27 points from seven wins, six draws and four defeats. So far, they have scored 33 goals and conceded 18 goals.

Defending champions Al Sadd are placed third with 32 points from 10 victories, five defeats and two draws, having conceded 21 goals and scored 34 goals.

In their first-leg match, Al Wakrah had emerged as 2-1 winners against Al Sadd in Week 7 and The Blue Wave would be hoping for another win against the formidable rivals.

The match represents an opportunity for both teams as Al Wakrah seek to win to stay in the top four, while Al Sadd will be motivated to gain the valuable points to advance in the standings to maintain their hopes of competing for the championship title.

The matches between these two teams have always witnessed excitement and once again the clash is expected to produce a strong contest with each side looking to outweigh the other.

Al Wakrah rely on a number of distinguished players, such as Mohamed Benyettou, Jacinto Dala, Lucas Mendes and Khaled Munir.

On the other hand Al Sadd will be served mainly by Akram Afif, Baghdad Bounedjah and Hassan Al Haydous. The Wolves may regain the services of Rodrigo Tabata, who has returned from injury which had kept him away for the last four weeks.

Moreover, Al Markhiya face Al Gharafa in Week 18 of the 2022-2023 season QNB Stars League at the Al Gharafa Stadium on Sunday.

Each team carries the desire to win and reaping the three points from the contest which is expected to be strong, given the abilities of both sides and their eagerness.

Al Markhiya enter the match being eighth in the standings with 18 points from five wins, eight defeats and three draws. They have scored 22 goals and conceded 27 so far.

On the other hand, Al Gharafa are fifth with 26 points, on goal difference from Qatar SC (sixth), with seven wins, five draws and as many defeats. They have scored 28 goals and conceded 30.

The first-leg match between these two teams had seen Al Gharafa emerge as 2-1 winners in Week 7.

The match will be open to all possibilities and each team will be striving to do their best to get the three valuable points.

Also, the confrontation between coaches Abdullah Mubarak of Al Markhiya and Pedro Martins of Al Gharafa will also see them push their players from the sidelines.

Al Gharafa will try to assert their superiority and achieve a second victory of the season over Al Markhiya in their aim to be back in the top four of the standings, while the latter would look to strengthen their own place with a win, thus adding a spark to the contest.

Furthermore, Al Ahli face Al Shamal in Week 18 of the 2022-2023 season QNB Stars League at the Ahli Stadium on Sunday.

Each team enters the match needing to gain the three important points, given the reversals they suffered in the last round. While Al Ahli lost to Al Wakrah 2-5, Al Shamal were beaten 3-1 by Al Sadd. Hence both Al Ahli and Al Shamal seek to compensate for their previous losses.

Al Ahli are currently seventh in the standings with 21 points and Al Shamal 10th with 14 points.

Al Ahli would also be fully aware of the slight difference in points between them and the closest teams in chase. The Brigadiers therefore would look to get the better of Al Shamal, especially since the teams results in some of the recent matches have not been to the level of the aspirations of their technical staff and management.

The Al Shamal meeting therefore provides for a new opportunity for them to show their mettle.

In contrast, Al Shamal coach Wesam Rizik would seek to beat the rivals and move forward. He would be wary of an otherwise result with Umm Salal being in 11th place with 13 points and only a point separating his team from them and the relegation zone.

The first-leg clash between Al Ahli and Al Shamal had ended in an exciting 2-2 draw in Week 7. As such, an absorbing battle is once again on the cards
