L-Tron to Share OSCR360 Investigation System with Fire Experts at Upcoming IAAI Conference

ASHEVILLE, N.C.April 18, 2023PRLog — The L-Tron team will attend the upcoming International Association for Arson Investigators (IAAI) 74th International Training Conference (ITC) from April 25-27 at Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina. The OSCR360 system for fire investigation, evidence organization, and case presentation will be on-site for demonstrations and for attendees to try using themselves. L-Tron team members Julianne Pangal and Andy McNeill will be available to share information and answer investigators’ questions.

This will be L-Tron’s first time attending and supporting the IAAI Conference. The OSCR360 team is excited to meet fire investigators, introduce attendees to OSCR360 and learn as much as they can.

The conference, which is geared toward fire and arson investigators from around the world, will provide instruction from international fire investigation experts and offer networking opportunities with investigators from state and federal agencies. Over thirty fire investigation experts are slated to share their knowledge during live classes and workshops scheduled throughout the event.

L-Tron’s Julianne Pangal says, “Our team is looking forward to attending the IAAI training conference this year. Our goal is to help fire investigators use technology to streamline their investigation from start to finish – from the moment they set foot on scene, all the way through to prosecution.”

On scene, OSCR360 (https://www.l-tron.com/oscr360-arson-investigation) comprehensively captures detailed 360-degree images of fire investigations, saving valuable time and resources. Not only are these overall images organized and stored within the OSCR software, but each piece of additional digital evidence from the case can be incorporated as a clickable “point of interest.”  Map overlays provide additional perspective, confirming the geo-location where an image was captured. The final, completed case file results in a compelling 360-degree virtual walkthrough of the fire scene. This makes it easy for jurors and others in the courtroom to understand how investigators processed the scene, the point of origin of a fire, and context for where any evidence was discovered,

caroline share cover of claire rousay’s “peak chroma” ahead of their North American tour


In preparation for their first-ever North American tour dates, caroline have shared a cover of claire rousay’s “peak chroma”. The cover is only available as a self directed video on Youtube or on Bandcamp.

caroline – peak chroma (claire rousay cover)

“claire rousay’s work has been a source of inspiration for us over the past two years,” the members of caroline explain of their cover song choice. “Recording this version of ‘peak chroma’ has been a way to explore our shared obsession with the incidental and improvisatory. The first half is a collage of improvisations performed in our studio (with saxophone by our friend Nathan Pigott) and the second half was recorded over a very hot three days in August when we stayed in Casper’s grandad’s house in Sussex. He had died recently and the house was almost completely empty. The home is perched right on the edge of the sea and we swam every morning

Yeahka Limited (“Yeahka” or the “Company”, Stock Code: 9923), a leading payment-based technology platform in China, increased by 4.45% and closed at HK$17.86 per share. Its share price climbed by about 30% in the past five trading days.

Yeahka recently announced its FY2022 interim results. For the six months ended 30 June 2022, the Company’s revenue was RMB1,642 million, representing a year-over-year increase of 17.07%. Gross profit rose 52.05% year-over-year to RMB529 million. The company’s gross payment value (“GPV”) reached RMB1.06 trillion, up 7.4% year-over-year. The gross merchandise value (“GMV”) of its in-store e-commerce services and the number of paying consumers was nearly RMB1.4 billion and 9.7 million, respectively, representing a year-over-year increase of 1,789.7% and 578.9%, respectively. The number of monthly active users (“MAU”) exceeded 19.0 million during the reporting period.

At the same time, Yeahka also disclosed the news of its share repurchase, stating that pursuant to a resolution passed by the shareholders of the Company at the annual general meeting held on June 24, 2022, the Directors were granted a general unconditional mandate to repurchase up to 45.1903 million shares. On September 5, Yeahka spent HK$4.955 million on the repurchase of 292,000 shares at a repurchase price of HK$16.74-17.08 per share. This is a relatively rare move among small and medium-sized technology companies and shows that the management is extremely confident in the Company’s future performance growth.

In view of its outstanding interim results and the management’s expectations for the Company’s future growth, Nomura and CLSA both upgraded their ratings to “Buy”. Nomura published a research report stating that its interim performance was solid, with revenue increasing by 17% year-over-year, mainly driven by strong growth in its payment business and in-store business. As of the market close today, more than a dozen institutions, including CICC, Guosheng Securities, GF Securities, and China Securities International, have all given the Company a “Buy” rating, which further demonstrates the investment value of Yeahka.
