Mobile Jungle set to revolutionise the UK’s refurbished phones market


ESSEX, UK; 24 June 2020 – Replacing your mobile phone every few years or when something goes unexpectedly wrong, is an unavoidable part of our modern lives. For some, it’s an excuse to get their hands on the latest and greatest tech, but for those looking to decrease their environmental impact, it can often be a bit more challenging. Shopping for refurbished mobile devices generally comes with mixed results.

Now there is a new, better way to buy refurbished mobile devices, whilst being kinder to the planet. Mobile Jungle is an online store selling high-quality refurbished smartphones and electronic devices direct to the public.

With a passion for sustainability and a vision to revolutionise the industry, Mobile Jungle is starting to get talked about for all the right reasons.

Based in Purfleet, Essex, Mobile Jungle’s team of technicians repair and refurbish all of their devices completely in-house. This has a substantial impact on both the carbon footprint of the business and the quality of the refurbishments.

“We’re here to raise the level of service that consumers seeking to buy a top quality reconditioned device receive,” says co-founder Justin Greenfield,“.  Historically certain customers within the refurbished smartphone market have been distrustful because of the lack of grading and quality control protocols in place, as well as less scrupulous e-commerce retailers leaving them waiting for months to receive the device or not refunding them promptly.

We’re on a mission to change all this by providing reliable service, high-quality and transparently graded products with no messing about”.

Mobile Jungle’s team of experienced and talented technicians take old, unwanted phones and turn them into like-new devices that operate perfectly, meaning customers can get an affordable phone without contributing to e-waste issues.

They may be a new business, but Mobile Jungle have big plans for the future, with ambition to launch a mobile repairs arm soon, where consumers can send in their existing devices for repairs.

Mobile Jungle customers have only good things to say about local business so far. Their trustpilot rating is the best in the sector with a trust score of 4.9 from over 110 reviews and growing.

“This truly is a business built for a modern world, built with conscious consumerism and our customer’s lifestyles in mind – which is why we also offer flexible payment options, including PayPal and Klarna. People’s mobile devices are their link to the world, so we understand how important it is to ensure they always have quick and easy access to a quality, functioning device,” says Greenfield.

New Online Tool To Stop £23m Whisky Scam Market


Cheshire based whisky broker Mark Littler Ltd has released a Cask Calculator to help stop the £23m global whisky scam market.

The increase in fraud during the Covid 19 outbreak has been well documented but fraudulent activity isn’t just limited to pandemics. Since the 1990s, globally over £23 million pounds has been pumped into fraudulent whisky cask ventures; and that is just the ones that have been shut down.

Mark Littler developed the Cask Calculator as a straightforward way to show all the costs involved in bottling a cask of whisky including, duty, VAT, uplift, bottling and shipping. The calculator gives an equivalent per bottle cost that can be cross referenced against bottle value prices to verify the cask price and prevent fraud.

‘Until now there has been no resource available to verify whisky cask prices like there is for property or shares (e.g. Zoopla or Morning Star). However prices for whisky bottles are widely available, so if you can turn a cask cost into a true per bottle cost then you can start to verify the price of a cask,’ explains Mark Littler, founder of Mark Littler Ltd and creator of the Cask Calculator. ‘By simply adding the details of a cask into the Cask Calculator it generates a realistic figure for a per bottle cost, which can then be compared to publicly available per bottle prices.’

The free calculator has been used more than 2,000 times in the last month alone.

Whisky cask scams are an issue in the unregulated industry. The Napier Spirits Company was set up in 1995 and alone sold £3.2million of casks to the unsuspecting public. In some instances Napier sold casks that were worth £500 for £3,500.

Napier Spirit Company was eventually shut down but cask mis-selling still happens today.

‘One of the worst instances I have encountered was just a few months ago at the start of 2020,’ says Mark Littler. ‘The asking price on a cask was so inflated it would have been cheaper to purchase comparable distillery bottled product at full retail price including shipping and taxes and decant those bottles back into a cask than pay the asking price for the cask. We want to make that kind of price disparity impossible.’

Alongside the cask calculator Mark Littler Ltd. have released a large number of other educational tools to help potential cask buyers purchase a whisky cask at a fair price. Resources include a 10 part video guide series, a 52 page printed or PDF Cask Buying Guide and dozens of blogs that cover everything from avoiding scams to everything you could possibly want to know about a cask.

Mark Littler Ltd is an independent antiques consultant and whisky broker with over 300 five star reviews of their services. They have sold everything from medieval rings, classic Porsche, vintage Rolexes and casks of Macallan. They also provide a cask brokering service with the ethos of helping their customers buy quality whisky casks at a fair price.

Could lockdown lead to mortgage market boost?


These are certainly challenging times in the UK, but in the gloom of lockdown, there may be some positive news for UK property buyers. That’s because in recent weeks, changes to mortgage products have seen restrictions eased and rates made more favourable for those looking to get on the housing ladder. Read more in this UK mortgage review.

More choice than pre-lockdown?

It appears that there are now more options for UK buyers – including the first time buyer – as products are being updated. Let’s round up some of the key developments.

Halifax, Nationwide, Santander and Virgin are among the lenders to have made it easier to qualify for a mortgage. Halifax and Nationwide are again accepting mortgage’s with a 15 per cent deposit, which brings renewed hope for the return of the 5% deposit mortgages.

Santander took the step of slashing the fees on its residential mortgages, while also upping the maximum loan size which it offers – up to £500,000 from £300,000. Virgin Money also got in on the act, facilitating 75% mortgages with non-physical valuations after a period of absence.

So what does it all mean? According to Eleanor Williams, the Moneyfacts expert, the changes are a reflection of lenders adjusting to the changing landscape around them. She explained: “Continuing the encouraging trend from last week where we saw early indications of lenders acclimatising to the ‘new normal’ and beginning to return products to their ranges, this week has seen further positive updates from a variety of mortgage providers.”

Getting the job done

“Lenders have certainly shown that ‘the show must go on’ during lockdown, finding ways to circumnavigate the problem of issuing valuations” says Hello Mortgage’s MD Keith Ahmed. This is because many properties cannot be visited at this time in order to make an inspection.

Mortgage providers are making better use of drive-by valuations, which use a system based process to agree property purchases. Henry Jordan, Nationwide’s director of mortgages, suggested to the BBC that now confidence has grown in methods such as drive-by valuations, lenders are happy to stay as active as possible even given the current situation.

Mr Jordan said: “As the UK’s second-largest mortgage lender, it is right that we still play an active role in the market, while maintaining the levels of service expected of us, during what are unprecedented and evolving times.”

Payment holidays

For those currently linked in to mortgage deals, there has also been some respite, with lenders offering payment holidays to those who wish to take the option during the coronavirus pandemic. According to the UK Finance trade association, payment holidays that have been taken across the country total an estimated £3.6 billion and are equivalent to one in seven mortgages.

The organisation reports that loans taken out on 1.6 million homes now qualify for the payment break, giving Brits some leeway as they attempt to keep their personal finances on track during this difficult period.

Building Societies Association (BSA) chief executive Robin Fieth suggested that the leeway offered to borrowers now go further than simply a payment holiday. He said: “Lenders are working hard to help in a range of ways and it is right that this now includes the ability for those on a three-month payment holiday to be able to switch on to a new product with their existing lender at the end of a fixed-term product should the two events coincide.”

In the first instance, if they are concerned about their finances, borrowers are being advised to check the website of their mortgage broker to see what the recommended steps are, including how to apply for a payment holiday.

However, a mortgage holiday is necessarily a great thing, as Keith Ahmed explains “Borrowers should exercise some caution when opting for a mortgage holiday and only do so if they are in genuine financial difficulty. Any payment holiday ultimately results in you being in debt for a longer period of time. Borrowers should take a holistic view of their finances and look at making other sacrifices before opting for a mortgage holiday”

Housing demand up in the North

Lastly, Zoopla has reported an increase in housing demand in the North of England over the last two weeks of April, for this reason, the northern cities have been tabbed to rebound quicker from the lockdown than urban hubs in the South.

“Northern cities have seen the strongest improvement in underlying demand although levels remain half those at the start of the crisis,” explained Richard Donnell, Zoopla’s director of research and insight.

“Having our roots firmly in the North of England, this is welcomed news. The North often suffers when compared to the South, let’s hope the upwards trend continues for us. It really isn’t all doom and gloom for the mortgage market, there are some fantastic remortgage deals out there as well as a comeback for the first time buyer market” says Keith Ahmed.

If you are looking for a mortgage, or perhaps want some free mortgage advice, rely on the region’s trusted mortgage broker, Hello Mortgage.

Eitan Eldar: Online Tools Help Keep UK Real Estate Market Afloat During Coronavirus Pandemic


The impact of the coronavirus pandemic on the whole world is massive, with a sharp down-trend in stocks and real estates in the UK. Since the pandemic became wide-spread across the globe, it has become increasingly difficult to do business as usual for everyone, even for real estate agents, as they develop new ways of viewings and valuations. The country-wide lockdown has taken its toll on the real estate market.

As it becomes increasingly difficult to carry out business as usual, Eitan Eldar says, “The quarantine and restrictions on movement set by the government to stop the spread of the coronavirus prevented potential buyers from inspecting properties and meeting with agents. We all know this isn’t good for the real estate business, but it’s the best approach to contain the spread of the virus.”

Online tools for viewings and valuations by real estate agents

With new sales becoming virtually challenging to close, the UK real estate agents are moving online in their droves for viewings and valuations. Sellers that were already on the ground on the market have their available stock reduced just by 2.6%. However, as the government restrictions on movement and physical business transactions came to being, different initiatives have been exploited by real estate agents to reach both potential buyers and sellers.

“Showing properties online has helped to keep the real estate market afloat for all during this coronavirus outbreak. However, sales are still down,” said Eitan Eldar. “This method allowed the real estate market to stay somewhat active, compared to other fields to shut down completely. With this novel initiative, investors can still go about to check out properties of their choice and close deals even as the pandemic ravages the world”.

The focus of the real estate agents is now on video viewings of properties, allowing buyers to inspect properties they are interested in ahead of the time when the restrictions will be lifted on movements. Real estate markets have started to recover from the fall it experienced at the beginning of the lockdown.

The overall result of the pandemic on real estate

Like every other sector of the economy, the real estate industry has had its fair share of the pandemic. And the impact might still be felt even when restrictions of movements have been loosened.

Eitan Eldar says, “In the real estate market, commercial real estate continues to experience the most of the impact of the pandemic. We don’t expect a fall in the private home market, at least, not in the long run”.

Antimicrobial and antiviral nanocoatings market to grow in response to COVID-19 pandemic


https://www.prfire.com/
The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020

When the current global crisis has abated, efforts must turn to future preventative measures. Nanocoatings can demonstrate up to 99.9998% effectiveness against bacteria, formaldehyde, mold and viruses and are up to 1000 times more efficient than previous technologies available on the market. They can work on multiple levels at the same time: antiviral, bacterial and fungal and self-cleaning.

Nanocoatings companies are already partnering with global manufacturers and cities to develop anti-viral facemasks, hazard suits and easily applied surface coatings.

Their use makes it possible to provide enhanced antiviral, antibacterial, mold-reducing and TVOC degrading processes, that are non-toxic and environmentally friendly, allowing for exceptional hygiene standards in all areas of work and life. As a result, it is possible create a healthier living and working environment and to offer holistic solutions to people with a diminished immune system. Nano-based surface coatings prevent the spread of bacteria, fungi and viruses via infected surfaces of so called high-traffic objects, such as door and window handles in public places, hospitals, public buildings, schools, elderly homes etc.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings are available in various material compositions, for healthcare and household surfaces, for indoor and outdoor applications, to protect against corrosion and mildew, as well as for water and air purification. Nanocoatings also reduce surface contamination, are self-cleaning, water-repellent and odour-inhibiting, reducing cleaning and maintenance.

Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings can be applied by spraying or dipping and adhere to various surfaces such as glass, metals and various alloys, copper and stainless steel, marble and stone slabs, ceramics and tiles, textiles and plastics.

Nanoparticles of different materials such as metal nanoparticles, carbon nanotubes, metal oxide nanoparticles, and graphene-based materials have demonstrated enhanced anti-microbial and anti-viral activity. The use of inorganic nanomaterials when compared with organic anti-microbial agents is also desirable due to their stability, robustness, and long shelf life. At high temperatures/pressures organic antimicrobial materials are found to be less stable compared to inorganic antimicrobial agents. The various antimicrobial mechanisms of nanomaterials are mostly attributed to their high specific surface area-to-volume ratios, and their distinctive physico-chemical properties.

The Global Market for Antimicrobial, Antiviral, and Antifungal Nanocoatings 2020 provides a detailed analysis of measures that can be used to address and mitigate the current pandemic threat, now and in the medium-term.

Eitan Eldar: “The UK real estate market is going to soar Post-Brexit”

Posted on: 15 Mar, Author: ebrand

The housing prices in the UK have soared and have set a record for the fastest rate of growth. This has all been achieved in just the last month. This is attributed to the boost in confidence and a good perspective on the housing market following the general election.

A 2.3% jump in the average price of new to the market prices have been seen. In 2002 the property website started its house pricing index. This 2.3% jump for this particular time signifies the biggest jump since the tracking began in 2002. The average asking price per property was £306,810. Over the month the market saw almost 65,000 listings.

Ceo & Founder of EEH Ventures has stated that even though England has gone through long and economic turbulence, this new trend of improvement is going to continue. He went on to say. “The UK markets are waking up,” said Eitan Eldar, “This is happening because of the outcome of the elections and because Brexit finally became a reality“.

 Part of the Credit Goes to the Election Outcome

 2019 saw a slow year for the UK housing prices. but this has changed since the turn of the year as prices have been on the rise. A major factor for this has been the General Election victory of Boris Johnson, the new Prime Minister. This has brought a 4.1% rise according to the January housing prices recorded by Halifax.

Expectations for real estate prices are that pricing will continue to increase. A strong indicator of this is the accounts EY producing a 2020 raised forecast of 2.8% from 2% for growth to be realized in the housing market. All of this is as a result of Brexit now becoming a reality.

 “Boris Johnson’s winning of the elections was the first indication in the process of stabilizing the economy”, said Eitan Eldar. “The pro-business conservative party winning in such a landslide gave the markets the badly needed relief”.

Following the Brexit Era

Many factors can affect the housing market, but uncertainty is a major factor that can cause hesitation among home movers. As a result of the last three and a half years of unsettlement over the EU referendum, it created a pent-up demand. This has since dissipated as a result of its settlement. This is giving a strong picture of activity for a robust spring market.

“Uncertainty about Brexit is finally over, and the British economy is expected to fully recover during the next few years “, said Eitan Eldar and added: “As uncertainty about Brexit is being replaced with optimism, we will see a lot more people buying homes and investing in real estate – UK real estate is soaring”.

 Overall the British population is on a bit of a roller coaster with their mix of emotions of anxiety and excitement.  All as a result of the history-making separation of the United Kingdom from the European Union which became official on January 31, 2020. Only time will tell as to what the impact of this happening will have on the Brexit economy. When it comes to market recovery, there is no need to wait to see the recovery as the evidence is already present.

HEMIDEINA RAISES $4 MILLION IN SERIES A ROUND SIGNALLING STRONG MARKET SUPPORT


MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA. November 16, 2019: Hemideina, a hearing solutions company focussed on the development and commercialisation of the Hera Wireless Implant, announced today that it successfully raised a Series A investment of $4 million in their second round of equity financing.

The capital raising follows the company’s success in validating its core mechanical signal processing technology. Achieving several significant technical milestones convinced investors that Hemideina was on track with their development and commercialisation strategy.

This financing will enable Hemideina to invest in its development program to advance the Hera Wireless Implant towards pre-clinical testing, extend the company’s IP portfolio and expand the expert team who will lead the company’s commercialisation activity.

Dr. Elizabeth Williams, CEO of Hemideina said: “We are incredibly appreciative of the overwhelming response to our Series A round from both existing and new investors.

The recent level of interest from the global hearing implant clinical community and support from investors will play a crucial role in helping realise the full potential of this technology and market opportunity.”

The Company’s capital raise was managed by Henslow, an independent advisory firm that supports growing companies and their stakeholders through every phase of the business’s evolutionary life cycle.
