A Breakthrough for Independent Films

The availability of affordable portable camera and editing programs has opened new opportunities for talented new filmmakers.  Nowadays it’s possible to shoot an entire movie on a portable camera or even on a new iPhone.  But reduction in filming costs has not opened a direct path from independent filmmakers to viewers.  In fact, the lion’s share of film budgets is spent on distribution and marketing.

Built on blockchain technology, MoviesChain by TVzavr platform is a solution to this problem.  It provides art house projects the opportunity to reach viewers in online movie theaters as opposed to traditional ones.  Independent film fans can watch movies from both their favorite and new directors both comfortably and at a low cost.  The MoviesChain project is being launched by TVzavr – one of the biggest online movie theaters in Russia and presented at Berlin International Film Festival 2018.

Analytical reports show that intermediaries are currently receiving about half of the proceeds from film rentals, which amounts to about $10 billion every year. Removing them from the distribution chain will allow filmmakers to keep more money in their pockets (something very important when film budgets are limited) and reach out directly to fans. Views won’t have to check movie theaters to find out when films from their favorite directors are playing.  Instead, they can just register for the service and everything will be available in just a few clicks.

Analysts estimate the share of the independent film industry in the world to be worth $20 billion a year. Meanwhile, the number of art house films produced is constantly growing. Independent filmmakers have increased their share from 1/3 to 3/4 of total film production since 2005. The share of online movie theaters is also growing.  MoviesChain by TVzavr will challenge the monopoly held by major studios and make it easier for new players to enter the market.  It will also drastically reduce the amount of money required to start production.

MoviesChain by TVzavr will enable filmmakers to start earning money as soon as their films are finished and give viewers legal online access to the latest movies.

CBD INFUSED ALCOHOL FREE SPIRITS WILL NOT MAKE YOU DRUNK OR HIGH

Denver, Colorado, Feb 16, 2018 – Introducing CBDSIGNIN.COM alcohol free liquors & spirits infused with CBD

The world’s first alcohol free liquor CBD infused is born; an American company is the creator of this brand new concept.

Cannabis-infused beverages like CBD SIGN IN without THC is available now in alcohol free spirits and alcohol free liquors bottles. Considerably healthier than smoking, the goal for cannabis-infused drinks is to create the perfect venue for consumption, while enhancing the social experience at light gatherings. The alchemy behind cannabis-infused alcohol free spirits can also be quite jarring to experiment with for the beginner.

To go with the beat of summer when it comes soon, we suggest you crack open a CBC SIGN IN bottle, the CBD-infused alcohol free spirits hailing from Colorado. Made from liquors extracts and natural flavorings, it has a liquor taste similar to any liquor brand on the market, it is sold in 1,000 ml / 33 FL- oz and 500 ml / 16 FL/ oz bottles. We want our market to feel safe whenever you purchase and drink our product as if you bought it at the grocery store. Brewed by chemists and beverage experts, the creators wasted no effort in the drink’s minimalistic, subtle branding too- a nice touch that will truly make anybody Enjoy More.

What is CBD?

Cannabidiol—CBD—is a cannabis compound that has significant medical benefits, but does not make people feel “stoned” and can actually counteract the psychoactivity of THC. The fact that CBD-rich cannabis is non-psychoactive or less psychoactive than THC-dominant strains makes it an appealing option for people looking for relief from inflammation, pain, anxiety, psychosis, seizures, spasms, and other conditions without disconcerting feelings of lethargy or dysphoria.

Scientific and clinical research—much of it sponsored by the US government—underscores CBD’s potential as a treatment for a wide range of conditions, including arthritis, diabetes, alcoholism, MS, chronicpain, schizophrenia, PTSD,

depression, antibiotic-resistant infections, epilepsy, and other neurological disorders. CBD has demonstrable neuroprotective and neurogenic effects, and its anti-cancer properties are currently being investigated at several academic research centers in the United States and elsewhere. Further evidence suggests that CBD is safe even at high doses.

Conclusion

Infusing cannabis in beverages is only a keyhole into the countless possibilities that marijuana can pose to do in our daily lives. In beverages, we can widen the scope into the responsible consumption of cannabis, because portions alone are regulated for safe intake, and standardized for repeat production. It’s also perfect for social gatherings and just elevates the cannabis experience to a subtle and safe practice. We dream of the day when beverages such as CBD SIGN IN become widely distributed around the globe, to which we clink our glasses in celebration. With prevailing efforts and technology, that day may be today.

About CBD SIGN IN

CBD SIGN IN was designed to allow anyone with medical conditions to drink CBD without guilt.

CBD SIGN IN drink makes a delicious, figure-friendly drinks on its own, or when mixed with other low-cal, no-cal beverages. CBD SIGN IN drink is great for cocktails

CBD SIGN IN is not a medicine and does not contain THC and will not make you high

CBD SIGN IN’s ability to mimic LIQUOR kick and flavor is credited to the blending of flavors and a trade secret formula. CBD SIGN IN is introducing a new line of alcohol-free vodka, tequila, gin, rum, brandy, mojito, whisky and Pina Colada’s CBD infused.

CBD SIGN IN unlike alcohol or drugs, isn’t constrained by strict market regulations, allowing it to be sold or shipped virtually anywhere, and can be ordered on line at https://cbdsignin.com/

WARNING: CBD SIGN IN is not a medicine and not a medical treatment against and has not been evaluated by FDA and does not contain any THC.

Alberta Health Services Introduces OnPage to Ensure a Healthy Workforce 

OnPage case study highlights Alberta Health Services’ use of product for preventing spread of communicable diseases in workforce of 108,000. 

OnPage Corporation, the first-to-market a secure, clinical communications platform for healthcare, today announced the release of its new case study highlighting Alberta Health Services’ (AHS) use of the product. AHS has been using the OnPage technology for almost two years to manage and limit exposure to communicable disease and body fluids by employees inside their numerous facilities. By using OnPage, AHS is able to immediately alert nurses when any potential employee exposure has occurred as well as manage costs, improve workflow and ensure high quality service across a vast geographic area.

Each zone marched to its own drummer

AHS is Canada’s first and largest provincewide, fully-integrated health system. In addition to taking care of the province’s citizens, AHS also places a premium on maintaining the occupational health of over 100,000 of its own employees spread out over Alberta’s five zones.

Occupational health becomes a significant issue when AHS must manage situations where even a small number of employees are exposed to potential communicable diseases or to contaminated blood. In these scenarios, if a patient comes to the hospital and potentially exposes an AHS employee to a communicable disease, AHS needs to ensure that all exposed employees are not unduly impacted and that opportunity for greater exposure is minimized.

Prior to their adoption of OnPage, AHS’ operations for maintaining occupational health during exposure to communicable disease or blood spills was highly fragmented. The employees in each AHS zone had their own procedures for alerting the on-call nurse when a suspected contamination took place. Because each zone had its own procedure, there were a lot of extra costs and time delays that the system had to incur that could have been avoided if there was one standard process across the province.

OnPage standardizes operations

AHS brought on OnPage to ensure standardization and better management of costs. These days, nurses receive immediate alerts on their smartphones along with a voicemail attachment from the impacted employee. For example, if an employee suspects that they have been exposed to flu or measles, they are told to call AHS’ dedicated line where they will be instructed how to leave a call back number and voice message for the nurse on-call. This message immediately goes as an OnPage alert to the on-call nurse who promptly researches the issue and returns the call.

By implementing this procedure across Alberta’s five zones, AHS has seen many notable benefits:

  • Decreased costs of on-call by 75%
  • Expedite ability of nurses to begin case management since they receive alerts with voice mail
  • Ensure high quality of healthcare to citizens across rural and populous zones in Alberta

Additionally, AHS uses the advanced reporting capabilities available through the OnPage console. Use of this feature has provided AHS with significant insight into:

  • Call volumes: When do facilities receive the most calls during the day and week?
  • Workflow management: How many nurses are required to manage the call volume?
  • Employee management: Are nurses putting in extensive hours to manage the call volume?

With this information, AHS can run a much more efficient workplace because they can know when to schedule extra nurses or when they might not need as many.

According to AHS’s Workplace Health and Safety office:

OnPage has helped AHS Workplace Health and Safety by standardizing our provincial on call system , and allowing our clients to all have the same equal access to an OHN.

How To Borrow Money For Your Business During Tough Economic Times

Do you keep in touch with your banker on a regular basis? If not, it is a good habit to get into, regardless of whether or not you are ready to take out a loan.

During times when the economy is struggling, having a solid relationship with a banker can go a long way toward providing stability for your company. The time and effort that you put into establishing a relationship with a local bank can really pay off by helping you build trust, respect, and credibility.

Periodically reach out to your banker to let them know what is going on with your business. You don’t have to wait until you are applying for a loan to talk to them about your company. Instead, consider keeping them in the loop with any major business developments. You may even want to give them an annual tour of your business. Building a relationship with your banker when things are going well can ensure that you have an ally when the economy takes a turn for the worse.

Banks are much more likely to approve an application for a loan when they have already worked with a business in the past. That doesn’t mean, however, the getting approved for a loan during tough economic times is easy. You still will have to provide lenders with detailed information about your business.

Preparing To Apply For A Loan

With proper planning, taking out a loan can go a long way toward helping your business succeed. Before you meet with your banker, be sure to follow the steps listed below:

1. Know exactly what you need ahead of time.

Before you walk into a meeting with your banker, figure out exactly how much money you need. Additionally, establish how that money will be used to benefit your business.

2. Consider working with multiple lenders.

The more lenders you work with, the more likely you are to be able to get financing when you need it. Depending on the size of your organization, you can either work with multiple banks or you can borrow from a single bank using a combination of short-term and long-term loans. If you want something with a good rate, then, apply for a guarantor loan

3. Understand what lenders are looking for.

When you apply for a loan, lenders usually rely on a set of standards that are commonly known as the “five Cs”. They include character, capacity, capital, conditions, and collateral.

In terms of character, the bank will want to make sure that your business and its employees are skilled and experienced enough to follow through and get good results. With capacity, they will be looking at whether or not you are capable of paying back the loan based on your past income and your projected cash flow.

With capital, they will want to make sure that your company has a solid equity foundation. The conditions of the economy and of your industry also come into play. Finally, they will also want to make sure that you have enough collateral to cover the loan if you are unable to pay it back.

4. Regularly communicate with your banker.

One of the best ways to get in good standing with your banker is by communicating with them on a regular basis. Always make sure to file any reports on time. If you are late with any important paperwork, it can negatively impact your banker’s view of your company.

You should also try to keep your accounts well under the maximum credit limit that you were approved for. If your financial needs change, sit down with your banker and discuss raising your limit rather than pushing it to the max.

You should also come up with cash flow projections for both the near future and the more distant future. Provide your banker with this information so that they have it available if it is ever required.

5. Be prepared.

When the economy is struggling, bankers usually will require far more documentation before approving a loan. Try to have all of your ducks in a row before you apply. Don’t get upset if your banker requests additional documentation or information. Instead, provide it to them promptly.

Don’t forget to polish your business plan, as well. Having a well-written business plan can go a long way toward improving your chances of getting your loan application approved.

6. Stay on top of your finances.

When you are running a business, it is easy to fall behind on basic activities like making sure that your bills are paid on time, your inventory is monitored, and all of your receivables are collected. Make sure that you are keeping up with these vital parts of operating your business since bankers will check to see if you are on track.

Ultimately, the steps that you need to take to improve your chances of getting financing when the economy is going through tough times include the following:

1. Be as prepared as possible.

2. Work with multiple lenders to diversify your credit profile.

3. Understand what bankers are looking for when they evaluate applications.

4. Never withhold information from the bank. Always answer their questions promptly and completely.

5. Make sure your business plan is in great shape.

6. Stay on top of the finances for your business.

‘’Get Away From Liquor’’ donations are coming from business owners all over the world

Laredo, Texas, February 12, 2018 – Millions of people are dying every year because of alcohol consumption.

It all started in 2012, when Sylvie Grattagliano founded Alcohol Substitute.  She decided to create a research center about the negative effect of the alcohol.

This was the kick starter and soon after, Alcohol Substitute decided to start the campaign to raise awareness on a wider scale.

There are lots of reasons people decide to take part in Alcohol Substitute and it offers a real range of benefits by helping other to get away from liquor.

Now with some friends and family a campaign to raise funds to purchase new laboratory equipment is on the way with Go Fund Me

Every 28 minutes in the USA there is someone dying as a result of alcohol. It is the country’s biggest risk factor for death, ill-health and disability for people aged 15-49, according to https://www.rethinkingdrinking.niaaa.nih.gov/Thinking-about-a-change/strategies-for-cutting-down/Tips-To-Try.aspx

 

Alcohol is a drug

 

It is classed as a depressant, meaning that it slows down vital functions—resulting in slurred speech, unsteady movement, disturbed perceptions and an inability to react quickly.

As for how it affects the mind, it is best understood as a drug that reduces a person’s ability to think rationally and distorts his or her judgment.

Although classified as a depressant, the amount of alcohol consumed determines the type of effect. Most people drink for the stimulant effect, such as a beer or glass of wine taken to “loosen up.” But if a person consumes more than the body can handle, they then experience alcohol’s depressant effect. They start to feel “stupid” or lose coordination and control.

Alcohol overdose causes even more severe depressant effects (inability to feel pain, toxicity where the body vomits the poison, and finally unconsciousness or, worse, coma or death from severe toxic overdose). These reactions depend on how much is consumed and how quickly.

There are different kinds of alcohol. Ethyl alcohol (ethanol), the only alcohol used in beverages, is produced by the fermentation of grains and fruits. Fermenting is a chemical process whereby yeast acts upon certain ingredients in the food, creating alcohol.

ALCOHOL CONTENT

Fermented drinks, such as beer and wine, contain from 2% alcohol to 20% alcohol. Distilled drinks, or liquor, contain from 40% to 50% or more alcohol. The usual alcohol content for each is:

Beer 2–6% alcohol Cider 4–8% alcohol
Wine 8–20% alcohol

Tequila 40% alcohol
Rum 40% or more alcohol
Brandy 40% or more alcohol
Gin 40–47% alcohol
Whiskey 40–50% alcohol
Vodka 40–50% alcohol
Liqueurs 15–60% alcohol

SHORT-TERM EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL

 

Depending on how much is taken and the physical condition of the individual, alcohol can cause:

  • Slurred speech
  • Drowsiness
  • Vomiting
  • Diarrhea
  • Upset stomach
  • Headaches
  • Breathing difficulties
  • Distorted vision and hearing
  • Impaired judgment
  • Decreased perception and coordination
  • Unconsciousness
  • Anemia (loss of red blood cells)
  • Coma
  • Blackouts (memory lapses, where the drinker cannot remember events that occurred while under the influence)

LONG-TERM EFFECTS OF ALCOHOL

Binge drinking and continued alcohol use in large amounts are associated with many health problems, including:

  • Unintentional injuries such as car crash, falls, burns, drowning
  • Intentional injuries such as firearm injuries, sexual assault, domestic violence
  • Increased on-the-job injuries and loss of productivity
  • Increased family problems, broken relationships
  • Alcohol poisoning
  • High blood pressure, stroke, and other heart-related diseases
  • Liver disease
  • Nerve damage
  • Sexual problems
  • Permanent damage to the brain
  • Vitamin B1 deficiency, which can lead to a disorder characterized by amnesia, apathy and disorientation
  • Ulcers
  • Gastritis (inflammation of stomach walls)
  • Malnutrition
  • Cancer of the mouth and throat

 

 

 

Alcohol Substitute is a research center affiliated with Arkay Beverages the pioneer of this news concept of alcohol free liquors.

 

The world’s First Private Organization Searching for a Non Drug Safe Alcohol Substitute

Since its creation ArKay the world’s first non-alcoholic liquors collection has been rapidly gaining popularity and is pleased to launch this truly unique and innovative drink to consumers world-wide looking for an alcohol-free liquor alternative.

ArKay non-alcoholic liquors are for EVERYONE and can be enjoyed ANYTIME, ANYWHERE since it can be consumed all night long without any intoxicating effects – it contains zero percent alcohol, calories, carbs or sugars!

Individuals with medical conditions or religious beliefs that prohibit the consumption of alcohol can enjoy the crisp, refreshing taste of ArKay non-alcoholic liquors! Straight-up, “on-the-rocks” or with your favorite mixer, anyway is a good way to ARKAY!

At cocktail parties, designated drivers, teetotalers and pregnant women often are limited to drinking soda, water or juice – options that can become incredibly monotonous. A new beverage in the market is about to shake things up and open a world of possibilities, giving everyone a chance to enjoy all the flavor of whisky with none of the alcohol, calories, sugar or sodium.

ArKay is the world’s first alcohol free liquor, which means it tastes like liquor, looks like liquor, smells like liquor, but has never been fermented or aged in a wooden cask and contains no alcohol. This version of the popular spirit is ideal for anybody who – for personal, philosophical or religious reasons – cannot drink alcohol or simply doesn’t want to indulge.

IMBIBING RESPONSIBLY

The liquor-flavored drink was developed by Reynald Vito Grattagliano a US Citizen and self-made scientist after five years of intense research. Currently, it is the only drink of its kind in the world. Owner and President his wife Sylvie Grattagliano wanted to market a different drink for people who like spirits but cannot drink alcohol, whatever their reason might be.

INTERNATIONAL GROWTH

The product was introduced to the public in 2011 and has experienced exponential demand.

1 Million People drink Arkay “Our drink is exported all around the world because we are creating something that nobody has ever done before, in fact we have given people an alcohol alternative that did not exist before.”

EXPONENTIAL GROWTH

ArKay is planning on expanding its offerings with soft drinks mixed with its product to emulate the taste and feel of a whisky and coke, or other mixed drinks. The company wants to get a strong foothold in the industry with its main beverage before it introduces new products, but it already is planning on expanding its offerings.

ALCOHOL SUBSTITUTE A CURE AGAINST ALCOHOLISM

Alcohol Substitute’s Research Department has discovered the molecule that could cure alcoholism with no side effects and no unpleasant and even potentially dangerous withdrawal symptoms

 

 

This innovation could simply revolutionize the way we drink. The W.A.R.M molecule is the name of the product www.alcoholsubstitute.com is a small molecule placed inside the drink. In contact with the tongue, the drink sends stimuli to the brain, the illusion operates, and the mucous membranes of smell and taste saturate and make the consumer believe that he is drinking alcohol. Beer, wine, strong alcohol, everything is possible. But beware, no drunkenness, no adverse effect, this is the advantage of the Alcohol Substitute. It reproduces the taste of liquor but not the negative effects of alcohol.

 

Beyond the enormous progress in public health, the W.A.R.M molecule is also of interest to the moderate consumer and really believe in the potential of this new drinks and we really think it will change the habits of consumers, this Innovation could simply revolutionize the way we drink.

THANKS TO THE ALCOHOL SUBSTITUTE BARS LIABILITY MAY BE REDUCED TO ZERO

Liquor Liability is a big problem and many bars are very concerned about it because bars may be held legally responsible for harm caused by drunk drivers and now with the W.A.R.M alcohol substitute bars liability may be reduced to zero.

 

But beware, no drunkenness, no adverse effect, this is the advantage of the AlcoholSubstitute.com. It reproduces the taste of the liquor but not the negative effects of alcohol.

Lee Hnetinka from Silicon Valley’s Darkstore Proposes to Stefania Romeo

Silicon Valley entrepreneur and 3PL co-founder Lee Hnetinka has proposed to Stefania Romeo in New York this winter. With dark clouds looming at the top of a New York skyrise, the sun was reflecting much of its bright rays making the atmosphere appear as romantic as a Thomas Moran masterpiece. But this is something memorable for co-founder and owner of startup company Darkstore. Lee Hnetinka, the same entrepreneur who gave us WunWun was about to propose to his girlfriend Stefania Romeo.

The remarkable moment was shared with this news agency privately and the video shows the couple walking hand in hand walking past a door on top of a New York building. Dressed in a deep purple tank top and dark olive green mini skirt holding her sheepskin fleece jacket, the unsuspecting fiancée was in for a surprise.

As they reach the end of the lounge with a table that was laden with roses which spelled, “Marry Me”, Lee went down on his knees to make his proposal. Stefania was more than ecstatic about Lee’s move as her unbelieving and surprised gestures showed in the video.

Lee Hnetinka is the same entrepreneur and co-founder of Wunwun, a startup delivery company catering to e-commerce businesses and brands. He started his initial venture in San Francisco, California last 2016, making on-demand product delivery for e-commerce businesses fast and convenient.

Darkstore is a new business venture for Lee. It is an app-driven shipper for local businesses fulfilling same-day deliveries for known e-commerce brands and local proprietors who would like to immediately ship their goods to their clients. This is a great initiative for a starting company who would like to lessen the burdens from other businesses by trimming down the high volume of shipment they need to discharge.

The startup currently provides services in San Francisco, New York, and Phoenix but plans to expand in other areas including Los Angeles, Seattle, and Chicago in the near future to reach a wider audience.

Lee has been in a long-term relationship with Stefania and the two have been able to travel in some parts of the world. The entrepreneur’s decision to settle down does not come in as a surprise as his parents were involved in the marriage proposal he just did.

The couple had a wonderful experience during that day taking mementos with their family members. The bride-to-be also showed us her wedding ring with a diamond crown studded with 15 Old European Cut Diamonds set on a gold band.

ArKay Beverages is initiating a bottling program to produce ArKay alcohol free spirits overseas 

Laredo, Texas 2/11/2018 – Wenews.info – This new concept gives flexibility and decrease import duties to the local importer; ArKay is inviting local bottlers to participate.

https://arkaybeverages.com/wp-content/uploads/2018/02/ArkayBottling-_Programwebsite.pdf

Specially designed for Africa and India’s local bottlers and because of its fast-growing population that brings with it a continuing demand for soft drinks, especially as the climate is quite hot and to offer a safe liquors alternative with ArKay.

Urbanization also drives demand for alcohol free ready-to-drink soft drinks amongst busy, on-the-go and night life consumers.

Alcohol consumption among different ethnic groups in Africa has a long history, especially among those groups where it was not forbidden by religion. In the traditional era, alcohol played complex roles in the socio-cultural relationships of different communities. It was used for rituals, marriage ceremonies, chieftaincy enthronements, etc. It was mainly consumed by male adults for pleasure while females and youths were culturally restrained from drinking. Excess consumption was not a norm and intoxication attracted negative sanctions. In the contemporary Nigerian society, patterns of consumption are changing rapidly following the socio-political and economic development of Africa, giving rise to new norms of alcohol use. This review examines the influence of disintegration of traditional values, non-regulation, advertising and other factors on these changing patterns of alcohol consumption. It concludes by exploring the consequences of these changing patterns, and suggested some remedies for contemporary Nigerian society.

Eight in ten Nigerian or Indian drivers drive under the influence of alcohol, study says

Texas Brewing Company building new Zero ABV beer Laredo plant

Wenews.info | February 9, 2018

Forget craft beer. The next craze is non-alcoholic brews

ArKay Beverages is opening in June 2018 a brand new bottling plant in Laredo Texas on a 5 acres land, the plant will produce craft alcohol free beers and cocktails bottled in 12 FL OZ glass bottles.

It’s still a very niche segment, but big brewers are scrambling to get in on the action.

That’s because drinkers are turning to brews that don’t come with a buzz. They’re increasingly worried about the health risks associated with alcohol.

Anheuser-Busch InBev, which launched non-alcoholic versions of Budweiser and Corona in 2016, predicts that low or alcohol-free beer will make up a stunning 20% of its sales by 2025.

Heineken released a competitor — Heineken 0.0 — last May and Guinness owner Diageo followed suit in January with Open Gate Pure Brew.

Carlsberg, which has been producing alcohol-free beer since 2015, expects revenue for that product to grow three times faster than overall beer sales.

Brewers are responding to changing consumer tastes, but there’s another powerful incentive driving the trend: Non-alcoholic beer generates 1.5 times more revenue because there’s no alcohol tax to pay.

Arkay Beverages opened ZeroAbvbeer.com an online store selling non-alcoholic beer, cocktails and spirits a part from ArKay Beverages e-commerce web site.

Advertising language is already becoming more positive, according to Euromonitor International. Ads tout what the beer has to offer in terms of flavors and natural ingredients, while steering away from its lack of alcohol.

Heineken said the alcohol-free beer market is growing 9% a year in the U.K.

“When people taste Arkay non-alcoholic beer, the first thing they say is ‘it tastes like beer!’ and I have to remind them that it is a beer. They can’t get their head around it,” Richard Simmons said.

Arkay non-alcoholic beer collection offers 12 popular flavors in Dark, Amber and Lager brewed – Bittersweet – Candy – Cinnamon – Ginger Dark : – Chocolate – Coffee – Licorice Lager : – Bitter Lemon – Honey – Grape Fruit – Natural – Tequila, the taste being identical to the best craft beer that are available on the market.

Arkay N/A beer will not be brewed like conventional alcohol free beers which may contains 0.05 % Alcohol, ArKay N/A beer is a genuine ZERO ABV BEER thanks to a new brewing process removing the yeasts stopping the risks of fermentation https://arkaybeverages.com/wp-content/uploads/2017/11/beers2018.pdf

Arkay is also launching this spring a collection of alcohol free beers sold in RECYCLABLE PET KEGS specially packaged for bars and restaurants dispensing alcohol free beer on draft.

Alcohol by volume

(Abbreviated as ABVabv, or alc/vol) is a standard measure of how much alcohol (ethanol) is contained in a given volume of an alcoholic beverage (expressed as a volume percent).

It is defined as the number of milliliters (mL) of pure ethanol present in 100 mL of solution at 20 °C (68 °F).

The number of milliliters of pure ethanol is the mass of the ethanol divided by its density at 20 °C, which is 0.78924 g/m. The ABV standard is used worldwide. The International Organization of Legal Metrology has tables of density of water–ethanol mixtures at different concentrations and temperatures.

In some countries, such as the U.K and France, alcohol by volume is referred to as degrees Gay-Lussac (after the French chemist Joseph Louis Gay-Lussac), although there is a slight difference since Gay-Lussac used 15 °C (59 °F).

0% Alcohol by volume

Alcohol free, or non-alcoholic beverages, are non-alcoholic versions of typically alcoholic beverages.

These may take the form of a non-alcoholic mixed drink (a “virgin drink”), non-alcoholic beer (“near beer”) and “mocktails”, and are widely available where alcoholic beverages are sold.

Beverages with labels that state the actual alcohol by volume help citizens from unknowingly becoming inebriated or drunk drivers.

0% ABV Malt does not contain alcohol, hence it is not an alcoholic beverage.
