Catalog King, Timothy Eaton
January 31st, 1907: Timothy Eaton, founder of the major department store and mail-order company bearing his name, passes away.
He introduced his famous catalogue in 1884 and opened his first factory in Toronto in 1889.
It’s interesting to see the progression of wealth for .1%’ers. Arguably the Jeff Bezos of his day, Eaton’s net worth was a comparatively paltry $175 million in todays dollars. Compare that to Jeff’s $60 billion (now about half that thanks to his impending divorce) and it’s clear to see how far the titans of industry have come in stockpiling wealth.

Aura Health Inc. (CSE:BUZZ) stand to benefit from the final approval of Israel’s export law for medical cannabis.
On January 27, the Israeli government announced the new law, approving the export of Israeli-grown cannabis to the global market.The law makes Israel the third country in the world, after Canada and the Netherlands, to approve export of medicinal cannabis.
The primary export market is expected to be the European Union, one of the world’s largest markets for medical cannabis. This is particularly beneficial to Aura, as the Company continues to grow its presence in the E.U.
Daniel Cohen, CEO of Aura, commented,“We welcome the Israeli government’s decision to approve the export of medicinal cannabis. With our Israeli production set to begin later this year, combined with our planned acquisition of the Pharmadrug distribution business in Germany, this moves Aura into a very strategic position. Until our own production is available, we see significant revenue opportunities by exporting other cannabis products from Israel into the E.U.through our mapped distribution channels.”
