Digicel's Operation Bigger Better Value YouTube Ads - LIME Value Comparison with Ity and Fancy Cat as Yendi Phillipps does Somersaults
The summer of 2014 saw price drops in smartphones, particularly Telecom Provider LIME's Huawei Ascend Y330, which initially dropped to JA$4999 to the current low price of JA$3999 as stated in my blog article entitled “JA$3999 Huawei Ascend Y330 vs JA$7599 Digicel DL700 this Summer of 2014 - Waggonists Transfer Form not Required to get new smartphone”.
Digicel's flagship DL700 aka the DL700 aka Alcatel One Touch Pop C3 remained largely unchanged in price at JA$75999 even when Telecom Provider LIME first dropped their prices in July 2014 as stated in my blog article entitled “JA$4999 Huawei Ascend Y330 vs JA$7599 Digicel DL700 Game of Phones - Tablets to drop on Emancipation and Independence Day in a Game of Phones”.
There was a sale at one point for the DL600, but that smartphone has an overheating issue, a topic I'll tackle in another blog article at a later date. Right now the main value-brand contender is Telecom Provider Digicel's DL700 and Telecom Provider LIME's Huawei Ascend Y330, which are the same when compared specs-for-specs as noted in my blog article entitled “Comparing the Huawei Ascend Y330 vs DL700 aka Alcatel One Touch Pop C3 – Heralds for another Budget Smartphone, the DL800”.
The Data Plans remained largely unchanged, with Telecom Provider LIME's Data plans being the simplest and providing more value as stated in my blog article entitled “Digicel's JA$70 Data Plans vs LIME's JA$50 Data Plans - How to choose 3-Day and 30-Day Data Plans in Jamaica”.
However, that has not stopped Digicel from Stepping on the Advertising and Marketing Pedal with a new slew of Ads that have popped up on Traditional Media and Social Media. Let the YouTube Ad Wars begin!
Digicel's Operation: Bigger Better Value - LIME Value Comparison as Yendi Phillipps does Somersaults
The first ads, titled Digicel's Operation: Bigger Better Value appeared on Digicel Jamaica YouTube Page on Friday August 22nd 2014 as shown below:
Not a very good Ad, as basically played upon Jamaican's lee for Nationwide News 90FM Media Personality Miss Kitty and Mr. DG and his earlier series of Agent Videos where he extolled the virtues of Digicel's various offerings.
But by Sunday August 31st 2014, LIME’s YouTube Page had responded with a simple ad featuring Ity and Fancy Cat lauding the fact plain as to which company offered the better value a shown below.
However, Telecom Provider Digicel on Wednesday September 17th 2014, apparently drawing for more star power, drafted in Agent Yendi Phillips as a Motorcycle riding, somersault flipping Agent that apparently sports an early prototype of the Samsung Galaxy Glass as shown below.
And of course here's my initial reaction on Twitter, which was one mainly of surprise, as it appears that Telecom Provider Digicel is either very desperate or going all-out! Christmas 2014 may be a very competitive one, what with Digicel's Rising Stars coming to an expected climax with the crowd apparently rooting for the youngest female singer as the new Rising Star.
So again I ask the question: Who will win the War for the Iron Throne come Christmas in this Game of Phones? Will it be the Telecom Provider Digicel’s DL700 aka Alcatel One Touch Pop C3 or the Telecom Provider LIME’s JA$4999 Huawei Ascend Y330? Or will Digicel roll out a new Budget smartphone to compete, possibly a version of their Branded smartphone, the DL800?

BrightSource Energy Plant Concentrated Solar Rays Killing Birds - Pheromone Traps for Insects a Desert Feast to Keep the Birds Safe
Solar Power is indeed a Wonderful Alternative Energy Resource.
But what If I told you that Solar Concentrators were killing Birds by the thousands? Well it’s true, as the BrightSource Energy Plant, a solar Concentrator Planet based in California is responsible for killing Birds with its super concentrated Death Ray of sunshine as stated in the article “Solar Bird Kill”, published Wednesday, August 20, 2014, The Jamaica Observer.
BrightSource Energy Plant is a US$2.2-billion Solar Concentrator Plant that is located in the Ivanpah Dry Lake near the California-Nevada border. The company is a joint partnership between the following three (3) partners:
1. NRG Solar of Carlsbad, California,
2. BrightSource Energy Ltd
3. Mountain View, California based Google
Launched in February 2014, it features a large field of 300,000 Mirrors focus sunlight onto a triad of 40 Storey (122m) tall central towers filled with molten Sodium Chloride in what’s really an oversized Sterling Engine. This Sodium Chloride is kept in that state by the concentrated sunlight that can reach temperatures of close to 6000◦C (10,832◦F).
This thanks to the mirrors tracking the movement of the Sun across the clear Arid Skies of the Ivanpah Dry Lake near the California-Nevada border. The molten Sodium Chloride is used to heat Water to Steam that then turns a Steam Turbine, generating Electricity for some 140,000 homes.
So with that kind of potential why shut it down due to few bird kills? The story is a lot more complicated than that and is an example of Alternative Energy that's somewhat bad.
BrightSource Energy Plant - Pheromone Traps for Insects a Desert Feast to Keep the Birds Safe
According to the Federal Wildlife Investigators, the owners of the BrightSource Energy Plant can't be allowed to build an even bigger version as Birds are being killed by the concentrated Death Rays of the Solar Concentrators at a rate of 20 birds per hour.
The workers at the plane call them streamers, after the fact that as the birds fly through the concentrated solar Radiation being focused by the Movable mirrors at the BrightSource Energy Plant, their plumage bursts into flames, literally cooking them in mid-flight.
An expert for the Centre for Biological Diversity environmental group places the death toll at some 28,000 birds per year, a far cry from the 1000 that BrightSource Energy Plant claim die at the hands of the Sun. This is because the bright sunlight from tall those 300,000 mirrors attracts insects which in turn attracts birds that follow them in flight. Both Bird and insect thus get roasted when they pass through the Solar Death Ray created by the Solar Concentrator.
So what can be done about this menace to Birds that's probably decimating Birds faster than Feral Cats as pointed out in my blog article entitled “The Zoological Society of London and their Cat Map - How UWI's Department of Biotechnology, the JSPCA and Telecom Providers can Kick Ass 2 against Feral Cats and Dogs”.
The simple solution is to kill the insects before they fly through the Concentrated Solar Rays by using pheromone Traps that would be located in and around the towers. Insects would be attracted to them and fly towards them, thing it's a mate only to be gobble up by waiting Birds.
Albeit it won't stop the Bird Kills, it'll reduce the high number to a level that would make the BrightSource Energy Plant a go for further construction! Either that or they could always resort to building s Solar Concentrators that didn’t focus the sunlight to a tower but rather onto smaller Sterling Engines or even Solar Panels.
Mr. Josef Bogdanovich buys 14% stake in KLE - Downsound Records bets on Usain Bolt's Tracks & Records Franchise as his Career switches Gears
Looks like yet another Matalon is being saved by the bell as was the case with ADV communications, a Call Center located in New Kingston as described in my blog article entitled “How to find work in Jamaica at Call Centers - ADV Communications is a New Call Center Coming to The Towers on Dominica Drive in New Kingston”.
This as Gary Matalon owned KLE is slowly being taken over by Josef Bogdanovich, who now has the largest share in the company, owning some 14% of the company as stated in the article “Downsound Records owner acquires 14% of KLE”, Published Wednesday September 17, 2014 by Tameka Gordon, Gleaner Writer, The Jamaica Gleaner.
As of last December 2013, KLE had six (6) Directors:
1. Mr. Gary Matalon
2. Mr. Kevin Bourke
3. Mr. Zuar Jarrett
4. Mr. Stephen Shirley
5. Mr. David Shirley
In December 2013, they had a total of six (6) million shares among them, which apparently had increased somewhat since the start of 2014 to JA$100 million by the time the Stock Sales to Mr. Josef Bogdanovich took place as stated in “Bogdanovich takes largest stake in KLE”, published Wednesday, September 17th, 2014, The Jamaica Observer.
By July 2014, Mr. Josef Bogdanovich acquired 7.18 million shares from KLE Director Craig Powell. By Tuesday September 9th 2014 he approached KLE Director Kevin Bourke and was able to acquire 8.1 million shares and well as an additional 5.9 million from yet another KLE Director Zuar Ard Jarrett. A Virtual who's who of Directors handing over that much control of their company indicates that they must have been seriously cash-strapped indeed, even if they still hold on to some of the shares in their company.
All told, that adds up to 21.18 million shares, but the Jamaica Gleaner recounts a total of 14 million shares purchased by Mr. Josef Bogdanovich that gives him a 14% stake in KLE. He purchased the stock for JA$1.00 each, the price it's been trading since July 2014 after it had lost ground 52 weeks ago from JA$1.61 to JA$1.00. Mr. Josef Bogdanovich purchased these 14 million shares for JA$13.9 million.
Good to note that Mr. Craig Powell is no longer a Director at KLE, having resigned since Monday August 11th 2014, a month ahead of the KLE Director Kevin Bourke and Zuar Ard Jarrett sold their shares, suggesting that he was jumping ship.
The sale of shares of KLE, which is traded on the JSE (Junior Stock Exchange), represents the largest block of transactions since they were listed in 2012. Gary Matalon and Friends (catch right?) have also ceded 40% ownership of Fiction Night Club to Mr. Josef Bogdanovich, retaining the remaining 60% of that well-hoofed Portmore based Club.
Mr. Gary Matalon apparently still holds 13.6 million KLE shares and so does Usain Bolt via Sherwood Holdings clocking in at 6.7 million units post the sale to Mr. Josef Bogdanovich, quote: “He has about 23 per cent of the shareholding and I have 16 per cent.......Based on his contacts and experience over the years, it's an honour to work with someone like that”. They’re still holding strong despite the errant parting of Mr. Craig Powell from KLE.
So yes, quite a deal indeed!
14% stake in KLE - Tracks & Records is the Fiction of a Famous Night Club's Odyssey Gaming Lounge
In case you’re been living under a rock, Mr. Josef Bogdanovich is the owner of Downsound Records, the Studio and Record labels to produces such notable Dancehall Artiste such as:
1. Scare Dem Crew
2. Lukie D
5. Ninja Man
6. Sugar Minott
7. Frankie Paul
He's also the famed promoter who brought Sting to Pay Per View in December 2013, albeit it didn’t do so well as noted in the article “Sting goes int'l via pay per view TV”, published October 25th 2013, The Jamaica Star.
A full bio of this prolific American Producer who's taken a love to Jamaican Dancehall can be read at this article “Who Is Josef Bogdanovich?”, Published Sunday December 8, 2013, The Jamaica Gleaner.
Currently Downsound Records is embroiled in some legal wrangling with the KSAC with regards to his Music Studio being located at 43 St Andrew Park, Kingston, being in a zoned Residential area as reported in “KSAC gets judgement against Downsound to close music studio”, published Saturday, July 19, 2014 9:13 AM, The Jamaica Observer.
Downsound Records eventually complied, relocating his studio form its current location to a new location in Kingston as reported in “Down Sound Records to comply with court injunction”, published September 9, 2014, Irie FM.
He's also fond of buying stocks and bonds on both the Local and US Stock Exchange, owning a sizable chunk of Heinz, makes of Ketchup and other products. Albeit Downsound Records has yet to comment on the purchase of shares that took place in July 2014, it is known to be about 23% of the total share in KLE, a struggling entity that owns the following Night Clubs:
2. Famous Night Club
3. Usain Bolt's Tracks & Records
4. Odyssey Gaming Lounge
Anatomy of KLE Stock Sale - Usain Bolt's Tracks & Records profitable as his career switches Gears
But what would CEO of David Annakie's Linkup Media Group of Companies Mr. Josef Bogdanovich take so much interest in a company that has a failing business model?
The company is still profitable as over a six month period ending June 2014 based on the following statistics:
1. 21% Loss in Revenues totalling JA$116 million in Revenues, compared to JA$147 million over a six month period ending June 2013
2. 40% declined in Operational Expenses to JA$21 million in Operational Expenses, compared to JA$35 million over a six month period ending June 2013
The Losses are also on the increase as well in the First Quarter of 2014:
1. JA$12.6 million loss compared to JA$17.2 million in the First Quarter of 2013
Apparently Mr. Gary Matalon had approached Mr. Josef Bogdanovich back in May 2014 to invest in the struggling company, quote: “I approached him months ago and basically had been talking with him on possibly collaborating on some of the things that we want to do for KLE. What I did was introduce him to everything that I was working on to see if there wasn't some way or the other that could help to improve and fast-track what we were doing”.
It may have to do with the Brand Value of the Usain Bolt's Tracks & Records, as it's the only valuable asset in the group of Clubs owned by KLE, which had plans to Franchise the Famous Track star's Nightclub. This as is' a branded commodity and Usain Bolt, despite his career showing signs of winding down as he switches to Cricket as stated in “Usain Bolt takes part in exhibition cricket match in India and is beaten over 100m by Yuvraj Singh!”, published 2 September 2014 15:44 GMT, The Daily Mail makes the KLE stock purchase very attractive.
To quote Mr. Gary Matalon: “His initial interest was on Famous nightclub then he became interested in the overall KLE Group because of our intention to franchise the Tracks & Records brand. Then he said that he wanted to be involved in everything. In order for us to execute our [partnership] he wanted to ensure that he has a meaningful stake”. Companies and products that are branded with the name of a famous celebrity tend to do well, as the allure of that celebrity's glory day's last on, especially that of Usain Bolt aka World Best.
This acquisition is on the same level as Apple buying Beats Electronics for US$3.2 billion back in May 2014 as stated my blog article entitled “Apple officially confirms Beats Audio Purchase - US$3.2 Billion as Apple gears up for Subscription Streaming and improved Headphones”.
It's also a lot like Glu Mobile's making of the Kim Kardashian: Hollywood launched on Wednesday July 25th 2014 that's estimated to be worth some US$200 million by December 2014 as explained in my blog article entitled “Glu Mobile's Kim Kardashian Hollywood App - Anatomy of How an A-List Celebrity based App propels In-App Purchases”.
By buying a 14% Stake in KLE, Mr. Josef Bogdanovich is setting the stage to quire more of the company for the obviously desperate and cash-strapped Directors, one of whom has already jumped ship as the economy worsens and the patron numbers dwindle.
In essence, Mr. Josef Bogdanovich is not betting on the current Brand allure of the company but in the future valuation when Usain Bolt's Career finally settles down and his Brand begins to rise again, akin to the Apple purchase of Beats Electronics and Glu Mobile's Kim Kardashian: Hollywood.

Dr Patrik Jones of Imperial College London Escherichia Coli makes Propane - How Waste Cooking Oil can make BioDiesel and Propane for Fuel
“This opens up possibilities for future sustainable production of renewable fuels that at first could complement, and thereafter replace fossil fuels like diesel, petrol, natural gas and jet fuel,”
Dr Patrik Jones of Imperial College London on the use of Genetically Modified Escherichia Coli Bacteria to make Propane
Since its genome was decoded, genetically Modified Escherichia Coli Bacteria can be used to make all kinds of things.
The coolest use that I know is to make Spider Silk, pioneered by Dr. My Hedhammar of the Swedish University of Agricultural Sciences and Director of R&D at Spiber Technologies in Uppsala as described in my blog article entitled “USTAR produces Spider Silk From Transgenic Silkworms and Japanese Spiber from Transgenic Escherichia Coli Bacteria - Spider Silk's big trend in Fabrics which means I’m Out Ciara and Nikki Minaj Style”.
But I’ve found yet another more practical use; making Propane Fuel as stated in the article “Biofuels: E Coli Modified To Make Engine-Ready Propane”, published 9/05/2014 @ 2:14PM by Paul Rodgers, Forbes Magazine.
This is the result of collaboration between the Imperial University College London and University of Turku led by Dr Patrik Jones of the Imperial University College London achieved this feat by modifying how the Escherichia Coli converts Fatty Acids into cellular membranes as reported in “Bacteria May Provide the Key to Sustainable Energy”, published 02 September 2014 by Dr. Patrik R. Jones et al, University of Turku.
The full team that worked on this groundbreaking project is as follows:
1. Dr Patrik Jones of the Imperial University College
2. Dr. Pauli Kallio of the University of Turku’s Department of Biochemistry
3. Dr. Andras Pasztor of the University of Turku’s Department of Biochemistry
4. Dr. Kati Thiel of the University of Turku’s Department of Biochemistry
5. Dr. Kalim Akhtar of University College London
With that many PhD this discovery better be good and is certainly appears to be, based on their work published in the Journal Nature Communications as stated in “An engineered pathway for the biosynthesis of renewable propane”, published 02 September 2014 by Dr. Patrik R. Jones et al, NATURE COMMUNICATIONS has huge implications as to how Propane Fuel can be produced.
Potentially this could be used to break down Oils form any Organic Source, such as dead animals or even Recycled Cooking Oil and convert it into Propane for Generators and even cooking. It's groundbreaking on the same level as the EU (European Union)-backed SOLAR-JET Project.
Back in May 2014 that they'd discovered a way to convert Carbon Dioxide (CO2) into SynGas and then Kerosene via the Fischer–Tropsch Process as explained in my blog article entitled “SOLAR-JET Project create Kerosene from Syngas - How Fresnel Lens in SynGas for Fischer–Tropsch Process means Fossil Fuel a Renewable Resource by 2017”.
So how does it work? It’s really as simple as 1-2-3!
Escherichia Coli makes Propane - Waste Cooking Oil can be used to Cook more Food
The Researchers genetically modified the Escherichia Coli with three (3) new enzymes:
1. Thioesterase that breaks down fatty Acids to butyric acid, an organic acids with a very bad odour.
2. CAR (carboxylic acid reductase) turned this butyric acid into butyraldehyde
3. ADO (aldehyde-deformylating oxygenase) turns butyraldehyde into Propane
Because the Escherichia Coli Bacteria needs energy to do its work, feeding it with the very fatty acids it was to convert to fuel wasn't an option. Thus they had to artificially stimulate it using electricity, effectively adding that Frankenstein touch to this project.
The output of Propane Gas from the Genetically modified Escherichia Coli is miniscule and being an organic reactor, takes awhile to build up significant volume, making this definitely not ready for prime time, possibly achievable in the next 10 years, to quote Lead Researcher on the Project Dr Patrik Jones of the Imperial University College: “We don’t have a full grasp of exactly how the fuel molecules are made, so we are now trying to find out exactly how this process unfolds. I hope that over the next five to ten years we will be able to achieve commercially viable processes”.
One way of doing that is using Cyanobacteria, which can process Sunlight in a photosynthetic process. This would eliminate the need for electrical stimulation as it can use the Sunlight as an energy source.
Renewable Cooking Oil– How Waste Cooking Oil is recycled into Propane ad infinitum
This Genetically modified Escherichia Coli could convert this Waste Cooking Oil to Propane for direct use in the kitchen for cooking without the need to build a biodigester and use methanobacter Bacteria to anaerobically decompose this Waste Cooking Oil into Propane.
It's effectively a biochemistry solution to the same problem that University of the West indies Lecturer, Dr. Michael Coley in collaboration with a NGO (Non-Governmental Organization) YCWJ (Youth Crime Watch Jamaica) is working on, which is to convert Waste Cooking Oil into BioDiesel as described in my blog article entitled “UWI and YCWJ team up to Recycle Waste Cooking Oil - Yendi Phillipps on How to make National Bio-Diesel Production from Waste Cooking Oil Insidious Chapter 2”.
Like Dr. Michael Coley's Project in the Department of Chemistry, practicality is part of the reason why Dr Patrik Jones of the Imperial University College chose to do his research into making Genetically modified Escherichia Coli do this, quote: “We chose Propane because it can be separated from the natural process with minimal energy and it will be compatible with the existing infrastructure for easy use”.
That’s right folks!
When this becomes commercial, you can literally use Waste Cooking Oil to make the very same BioDiesel to drive your vehicle and Propane Gas to cook the very same food, generating more Waste Cooking Oil and thus make the process self-sustaining. Something tells me the makers of Propane Gas may not like where this may be heading in the next few years.
Still, like the SOLAR-JET Project to create fuel literally out of thin air, this holds out the potential of soling the problem of what to do with Waste Cooking Oil. Hundred of Gallons of this stuff is also produced in London, England from various eateries and it can't be poured down the drain as it decomposes slowly, clogging waterways and killing soil bacteria.
Akin to Dr. Michael Coley's Project, it can turn Waste into Fuel for immediate use with the very Waste Cooking Oil continuing the process sustainably.
APS Built 100Kw Solar Power installation Project at UTECH - Why APS may be PCJ's Contractor for High School Solar Panel Installation Project
Remember UTECH (University of Technology) 100KW Solar Power Facility that was slated to be built in six months by JPS Co (Jamaica Power Service Company) back in October 2012 as I’d reported in my blog article entitled “JPS Co to build 100 KW Solar Plant at UTECH - Marubeni of Japan and EWP (East West Power) Benevolence as LNG Project now Taken 2 the next Level for 2015AD”?
Well it’s built now as I’ve recently discovered was commissioned into service on Thursday July 10th 2014 by Minister of State in the Ministry of Science, Technology, Energy and Mining Julian Robinson as stated in the Press Release entitled “Minister Julian Robinson to officially Commission JPS/UTech Solar Project on July 10”, published 2014-07-08 by University of Technology, Go-Jamaica.
A discovery I made after scouring my RSS (Really Simple Syndication) and emails in Mozilla Thunderbird, my offline access to Gmail Email. But more interesting is the fact that the 100KW Solar Power installation involved input from 30 UTECH Engineering Students as noted in the article “UTech solar system doubles as teaching aid”, published Wednesday, September 10, 2014 BY VERNON DAVIDSON Executive editor -- publications, The Jamaica Observer.
According to his interview with The Jamaica Observer, he took on the 30 students in rotting shifts during the construction phase of the 100KW Solar Power installation Project. Thus a Project that would normally take 4 (4) weeks took eight (8) weeks, as care was taken to show the UTECH Engineering Students the rudimentary basics of a proper Solar Installation of his magnitude from start to finish.
More interestingly too, the 100KW Solar Power installation Project wasn't actually built by JPS Co but was contracted out to 11 year veteran in Solar Installations, Alternative Power Sources (APS). So what are the specs of this mammoth 100KW Solar Power installation Project? Is it one of a kind and are there more in the offing? And what about training? Does APS do training and certification in installing Solar Panels?
APS Built 100KW Solar Power installation Project - UTECH not one of a kind but one of many
The UTECH 100KW Solar Power installation was built in three phases:
1. 22 panels providing 5KW installed on the Front Lawn of UTECH
2. 160 250W panels providing 40KW installed on the Engineering building
3. 220 250W panels providing 55KW installed on the Education and Liberal Studies building
The 100KW Solar Power installation cranks out some 450 KWh of power on a daily basis, which works out to be 162MWh of power annually. That allows UTECH to realize savings of JA$550,000 per month or approximately JA$6.6 million per annum, assuming even sunlight during the entire year, to quote APS Manager Damian Lyn: “That amounts to approximately between $500,000 and $550,000 a month in energy cost savings. So it's a very good investment for the campus”.
First off the bat, this Project isn't unique to APS, according to APS Manager Damian Lyn. They built a similar installation 100KW Solar Power installation for AISK (American International School of Kingston) as stated in the article “American International School Of Kingston Goes Solar”, Published Tuesday October 15, 2013, The Jamaica Gleaner and “AISK saves big with solar”, published Wednesday, October 23, 2013 by Devaro Bolton, The Jamaica Observer.
APS has also done installation at the following Schools:
1. Jones Town High School
2. Maldon High School
3. Chatsworth Primary School
He also has another 100KW Solar Power installation at a villa in Discovery Bay and has plans for installation of a similar system at St Andrew High for Girls. APS is also currently working on a smaller but still impressive 72KW Solar Power installation at Old Fort Village residential complex in St Ann. On that Project APS Manager Damian Lyn commented, saying quote: “That is major in the sense that it is the first time in Jamaica that we are going to have a townhouse complex that is totally off JPS”.
As for formal training, aside from the UTECH Engineering Students, APS has partnered with UTECH and UWI to provide Technical Certification in the installation of Solar Systems, to quote APS Manager Damian Lyn: “It's a course certified by the Electronics Technicians Association in the US. It is certified to the point where you can take the US exams, qualify and use that to get a job in the US should you migrate. That programme started three years ago and we have worked closely with UTech and UWI (University of the West Indies) in different programmes that involve renewable energy and [in] assisting and guiding the students”.
So with that much experience in the Installation of Solar Power installation in Jamaica at High Schools and now a Residential Complex, will his company APS be involved in the JA$62 million dollars worth of Solar Panels at the 15 Schools and the 3 GOJ (Government of Jamaica) Institutions funded by the PCJ (Petroleum Corporation of Jamaica) as reported in my blog article entitled “PCJ to install JA$62 million Solar Panels Systems - 15 Schools and 3 GOJ Institution”.
Stay tuned as a good source of mine indicates that they're in line to get that particular contract from the PCJ!
