NextWave Research Analysis of Healthcare M&A Shows it May Not Signal the Bottom

NextWave Research Analysis of Healthcare M&A Shows it May Not Signal the Bottom



NextWave Research announces the publication of "Does An Increase in Healthcare M&A Signal a Bottom? Not Yet!" highlighting recent activity and the market implications.



Pembroke Pines, FL (PRWEB) February 11, 2009



NextWave Research announces the publication of "Does An Increase in Healthcare M&A Signal a Bottom? Not Yet!" highlighting that the strength of M&A does not necessarily translate into a signal that the market has reached a bottom.



Analyst John M. Putnam, CFA states that despite the attractive valuations of recent M&A deals "There are several caveats that must be put forward before the group returns to clear sailing. First, the bottom can be a long trough. While healthcare stocks may outperform other groups on a relative basis, their ultimate performance will still be dictated by the market's overall recovery. Secondly, attractive valuations can become even more attractive. If the market reacts negatively to any number of still unknown factors, healthcare stocks will surely decline as well. And finally, since corporate buyers are strategic buyers, they have longer time horizons than do institutional or even individual investors."



He further points out that, based on current valuations within the orthopedic, cardiovascular and medical device space, the acquisition premiums appear to be 20% to 25% or fairly reasonable based on historic trends which can average 5.0X or 6.0X revenues. These premiums are still one-third below that of the 52 week highs posted by the stocks of these companies still suggesting reasonable valuations. However, he cautions that "Although valuations appear reasonable, we are not sure that the M&A activity has picked up enough to declare the bottom. As we stated at the beginning, the trough may be long and deep."



Some companies mentioned are Johnson & Johnson (NYSE: JNJ), Abbott Labs (NYSE: ABT), Medtronic (NYSE: MDT), Boston Scientific (NYSE:BSX), St. Jude (NYSE: STJ), Pfizer (NYSE:PFE), Wyeth (NYSE:WYE), Merck (NYSE:MRK) and Proctor & Gamble (NYSE:PG).



NextWave Research founder, Stephen M. Dunn states "While healthcare is traditionally a defensive sector, we advise investors to be wary of extrapolating healthcare M&A activity into a signal that the market has bottomed."

Career Step Launches New Medical Transcription Editor Training Program



PROVO, Utah (PRWEB) March 30, 2010



Career Step, a leading online healthcare education company, has launched a new Medical Transcription Editor (MTE) online training program designed to train students as quality medical transcriptionists as well as specialized medical transcription editors. These specialized editors correct and complete the reports generated by speech recognition software.



“We’ve developed the new Medical Transcription Editor program to ensure our students are marketable and flexible in the current job market as well as prepared for the future,” said Michael Wilstead, Career Step CEO. “Several of the medical transcription service organizations who hire our graduates asked that we develop this training—they need quality employees with both medical transcription and medical editing skills sets, and they see that need only increasing in the future.”



Career Step has been a leader in medical transcription education for almost 20 years, offering an industry-leading Medical Transcription training program. This time-tested and employer-recognized curriculum is the foundation of the new MTE training program, which incorporates training designed to help students gain the specialized skills necessary to perform both medical transcription and to complete the reports generated by speech recognition systems. This new program was developed in response to employer requests and is designed to prepare students for the industry trend toward a greater number of speech recognition generated reports.



In order to provide students with the best and most relevant training, Career Step has partnered with M*Modal and incorporated their industry-leading editing technology in the practicum section of the training program.



“Including M*Modal technology in our training program simulates the workplace and allows our students to learn on transcribed files like those they’ll actually encounter as professionals in the industry,” said Mark Thomas, Career Step COO. “We chose to partner with M*Modal because of their market leadership and innovative speech recognition technology.”



The Career Step training program incorporates M*Modal’s editing tool, AnyModal Edit, in order to prepare students for the reality of the workplace.



“We are very pleased to partner with Career Step,” said Mark Ivie, COO of M*Modal. “M*Modal’s speech recognition technology is now delivering edit ready draft documents to eight of the top ten medical transcription service organizations, and the collaboration between Career Step and M*Modal for the creation of a medical transcription editing training program is a logical solution to meeting the challenges medical transcriptionists face when moving from the world of transcription to the world of editing.”



The new Career Step training program will be offered in both a full vocational version, designed for those with no previous medical transcription experience, and a supplemental version, meant for those already trained or working as medical transcriptionists.

Power to Change Lives: Solar Lamp and Charger Now the 100th Object in the History of the World

Power to Change Lives: Solar Lamp and Charger Now the 100th Object in the History of the World



Toughstuff, which started trading just 15 months ago, has already sold more than 100,000 solar power kits benefitting 380,000 low-income consumers in Eastern and Southern Africa. Products have also been distributed to people in temporary camps in Haiti following the earthquake.



(PRWeb UK) October 14, 2010



A solar lamp and charger, on sale for around $10, are now rubbing shoulders at The British Museum in London with some of the most rare and priceless artefacts in the world. The lamp and charger are the final members of the eclectic group of items which tell the History of the World in 100 Objects, the BBC and The British Museum have revealed today.



From an ancient Egyptian mummy, to the Sutton Hoo helmet, a Victorian tea-set and a credit card, all the objects featured in the BBC series reflect humankind’s development through its creations. The solar powered lamp and charger have been described by Neil MacGregor, Director of the British Museum, as objects which tell “the story of the ingenuity and the challenges that shape humanity in the 21st century.”



The inclusion of the solar kit as the 100th object has been welcomed by Andrew Tanswell, a British social entrepreneur. His organisation, ToughStuff, manufactures and sells robust lamps and chargers, built to withstand harsh environments, to some of the world’s poorest people.



Andrew Tanswell said: “The inclusion of portable solar technology in the British Museum’s collection confirms how solar lamps and chargers are changing lives by bringing electricity to people who’ve never had it before -- powering mobile phones, lights and radios.



“It also demonstrates how the business model developed to sell these products is working effectively, enabling people in very remote areas to have access to this technology and helping to lift people from poverty through enterprise.”



1.46 billion people in developing countries have no access to on-grid electricity. They use kerosene and candles for light, and poor quality dry-cell batteries for radios. These are costly, polluting, and damage people’s health. But ToughStuff’s solar kit offers an alternative: clean and free energy, saving people money whilst improving their health and the environment.



ToughStuff has also developed innovative distribution systems to get products to remote settlements. For example, through a “Business in a Box” program Village Solar Entrepreneurs sell and hire out solar panels and chargers.



Toughstuff, which started trading just 15 months ago, has already sold more than 100,000 solar power kits benefitting 380,000 low-income consumers in Eastern and Southern Africa. Products have also been distributed to people in temporary camps in Haiti following the earthquake.

Save consumers money and help lift them from poverty Cause a significant reduction in CO2 Remove the environmental damage of discarded batteries Enhance health by decreasing exposure to kerosene fumes Improve study and educational opportunities thanks to dependable light sources Increase micro enterprise employment by supporting local ToughStuff entrepreneurs.



ToughStuff is the winner of the 2010 NEMEX Renewables Innovation Award sponsored by British Gas at this year’s Environment and Energy Awards.

1 -- Tahiry, a case study, available for interview.



This is a link to a low resolution video about Tahiry, a Business in a Box Entrepreneur, (high res available) http://www. youtube. com/watch? v=0ImMvmODA6w]



In Madagascar, Tahiry, aged 25, has taken ToughStuff’s Solar Village Entrepreneur program to new heights. As a recent university graduate who could not find employment, he raised money from his family to become one of the first ToughStuff Solar Village Entrepreneurs (SVE). The SVE program enables entrepreneurs to create a livelihood by providing lighting within their community. An entrepreneur typically purchases between 30 and 50 solar panels and LED lamps that they then rent to villagers for the same prices as candles or kerosene. For the same cost, the LED light is brighter, healthier, and safer.



Tahiry started with 30 lamps and panels. After his first week he returned to the ToughStuff office to buy more, “The students are angry with me that I don’t have enough lights for them all. They need light to study!” Tahiry now has 2 employees and 115 solar kits -- lighting over 10% of the village. One of the employees recently noted: “ToughStuff has become so ingrained in the village that I can’t imagine life without it.”

The Austin Technology Incubator Graduates Clean Energy Member Company, Anzode, Inc

The Austin Technology Incubator Graduates Clean Energy Member Company, Anzode, Inc.



The Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), a not-for-profit arm of The University of Texas at Austin, announced today that its member company, Anzode, Inc., will graduate June 30th, 2010, six and one half months after joining the incubator on December 14th, 2009.



Austin, Texas (PRWEB) June 10, 2010



The Austin Technology Incubator (ATI), a not-for-profit arm of The University of Texas at Austin, announced today that its member company, Anzode, Inc., will graduate June 30th, 2010, six and one half months after joining the incubator on December 14th, 2009.



Anzode formed in 2004 to develop, produce and market energy storage solutions using its patented long-life rechargeable stabilized zinc electrode technology. Anzode’s proprietary zinc electrode, originally developed at New Zealand’s Massey University, has a long cycle life that enables commercial application of zinc’s high energy density battery chemistry. Commercial viability of rechargeable zinc was previously impractical as the traditional zinc electrode has a limited cycle life.



In their time at the incubator, Anzode forged a bridgehead into the Texas clean energy community, established connections in the Texas investment community and refined their pitch with the help of ATI’s directors and staff. Among the connections made was becoming an affiliate of UT’s Center for Electrochemistry after meeting Jeremy P. Meyers, Assistant Professor Mechanical Engineering / Material Science & Engineering. “On our own it is unlikely that we could have had as much exposure to the right people at the right time as that afforded by ATI,” said Chris Officer, founder, president and CEO of Anzode.



The most fundamental shift Anzode made as a result of their relationship with the ATI is a refocus of its business model from a vertically integrated battery company to a material sciences IP firm. Going forward the company will focus on bringing its rechargeable zinc to market by licensing and partnering with existing battery manufacturers, a move that will significantly enhance Anzode’s capital efficiency.



“In a very fundamental way the whole ATI experience enabled us to better understand what our destiny should be,” Officer said, “and as a result we have refocused our strategy on an outcome that is more aligned with both our DNA and our investors’ expectations.”



Anzode was a member of the ATI-Clean Energy Incubator and worked primarily with its co-director, Mitch Jacobson. “Mitch has been great,” Officer said. “He worked very hard for us. He delivered as promised and you can’t ask for more than that.”



“We were very pleased to work with Chris and his team in helping them grow their company and formulate a strategy going forward,” Jacobson said of his time with Anzode. “We will continue to engage with them and wish them the best of luck in the future.”



Anzode is the seventh company to graduate from the Incubator since January of this year. A formal ceremony is planned for early 2011.



About the Austin Technology Incubator



The Austin Technology Incubator is a nonprofit unit of The University of Texas at Austin that harnesses business, government and academic resources to provide strategic counsel, operational guidance and infrastructure support to its member companies to help them transition from early stage ventures to successful technology businesses. Since its founding in 1989, ATI has worked with over 200 companies, helping them raise close to $750 million in investor capital. ATI is a key program of the IC2 Institute at The University of Texas at Austin. For more information, visit http://www. ati. utexas. edu (http://www. ati. utexas. edu).



About Anzode, Inc.



Anzode Inc. was formed in 2004 to develop, produce and market energy storage solutions, based on patented long-life rechargeable stabilized zinc electrode technology. Zinc, the safest and cleanest battery chemistry known, is used in over 80% of single-use batteries and is unique in rechargeable battery chemistries in that it can be used with multiple “partner” electrodes to create a variety of batteries: high energy density silver-zinc (AgZn); high power nickel-zinc (NiZn); and zinc-air (Zn-Air), considered the “holy grail” of rechargeable batteries for its very high energy density and power. For over 100 years rechargeable battery designers have recognized the energy density advantages of zinc as a battery chemistry, but the limited cycle life of the traditional zinc electrode has restricted the use of these systems. Anzode’s zinc electrode exhibits the long cycle life needed to open up the commercial application of this high energy density battery chemistry. The proliferation of large mobile devices and motive power applications, new off-grid and on-grid energy storage demands, and growing environmental, health & safety concerns are combining to create a strong demand for a clean, high energy density battery that Anzode’s zinc technology can deliver.

Acclaimed New Book Offers 'Just Enough Governance' for Lotus Notes

Acclaimed New Book Offers 'Just Enough Governance' for Lotus Notes



New book, praised on Amazon by Thomas Duff, shows how to balance the need for Lotus Notes agility with the requirement for effective IT governance.



Ely, England (PRWEB) November 22, 2008



In many organisations, Lotus Notes and Notes applications are critically important to business. Equally important today, however, is the need to exercise effective governance over all IT processes to protect the health of the enterprise. The forthcoming book 'Just Enough Governance for Notes' (http://www. itgovernance. co. uk/products/2086), acclaimed on Amazon by renowned reviewer Thomas 'Duffbert' Duff, offers a new way to reconcile these two requirements, with a 'light touch' governance approach that preserves the agility that makes Notes so invaluable.



'Just Enough Governance for Notes' is written by Lotus Notes veteran Craig Schumann, Senior Vice President for R&D at TeamStudio. According to Duff, it "bridges the gap between the 'Wild, Wild West' environment so often seen in Notes shops, and the approval - and documentation-heavy processes you see in other IT areas. Even better, it introduces the topic of governance in such a way that most Notes developers can relate to and accept".



The book presents an IT governance philosophy for Lotus Notes that can protect the company without stifling developer initiative. It goes on to give IT staff and Notes developers a blueprint to implement IT governance processes and principles in the Lotus Notes environment. Lastly, it takes a clear-sighted look at the future evolution of Notes and of IT governance.



Topics covered in the book's 174 pages include The Trend Toward IT Governance, Design, Development, Test and Production. With the good practices it presents, readers will be able to create a governance process as agile as Notes itself, so that businesses and Notes applications can prosper together for many years to come.

Costa Rican Medical Care to exhibit at NAHU’s Annual Conference in Chicago



“Having the chance to explain the many benefits of working with Costa Rican Medical Care to the hundreds of insurance agents, brokers, and consultants attending this show is a great opportunity for us. A very large percentage of these professionals are trusted advisors with their health insurance clients who are looking to them to offer quality solutions at an affordable cost. We believe that medical tourism to the country we specialize in, Costa Rica, is a very attractive option for their clients”, said Tim Morales, President of Costa Rican Medical Care.



Lake Geneva, WI (PRWEB) June 23, 2010



Costa Rican Medical Care, a medical tourism facilitator specializing in the country of Costa Rica, will be exhibiting at the National Association of Health Underwriters’ Annual Convention and Exhibition in Chicago from June 27th-29th.



“Having the chance to explain the many benefits of working with Costa Rican Medical Care to the hundreds of insurance agents, brokers, and consultants attending this show is a great opportunity for us. A very large percentage of these professionals are trusted advisors with their health insurance clients who are looking to them to offer quality solutions at an affordable cost. We believe that medical tourism to the country we specialize in, Costa Rica, is a very attractive option for their clients”, said Tim Morales, President of Costa Rican Medical Care.



John Garven, past president of the Illinois State Association of Health Underwriters and owner of Benico, Ltd., a Chicago area employee benefit consulting firm, will be joining Mr. Morales and other colleagues at the Costa Rican Medical Care booth. “My firm’s clients are looking for credible ideas around cost-effectively providing high quality medical care”, said Garven. “After having attended the First Latin American Global Medicine and Wellness Congress in San Jose, Costa Rica, at the end of April and personally visiting a number of Costa Rica’s private clinics and hospitals, I am convinced that Costa Rican Medical Care is able to deliver the cost-effective quality that my clients are looking for in terms of a medical treatment alternative. I highly recommend that my NAHU colleagues become more informed about this opportunity by visiting us at booth 232 in the Exhibit Hall”.



About Costa Rican Medical Care: The Costa Rican Medical Care program is simple and stress-free. We provide patients with answers to their questions and let them know upfront the approximate cost of their medical tourism experience. Patients (and their companions, if any) are picked up at the airport by an English-speaking guide. Hotel accommodations are carefully selected to provide convenience to the patient. The guide accompanies the patient to and from their doctor appointments. Following surgery and recovery our counselors will arrange for any further rehab or care that might be needed, and contract with an in-home service in the U. S. to provide further care, if needed.



Sampling of Costa Rican Medical Care Services: Bariatric Surgery, Angioplasty, Heart By-Pass, Hip and Knee Replacement, Ophthalmology, Medical Check Ups, Dental Care, and Cosmetic and Plastic Surgery are some of the many healthcare services that are available at a fraction of the cost of such care in the United States.

A Simple Call for Help: A 'Fitness Management & Consulting' Health Club Turnaround Success

A Simple Call for Help: A 'Fitness Management & Consulting' Health Club Turnaround Success



In 2004 Kevin Walker, an acclaimed personal trainer, decided to branch out into the broader health club business. He soon found out that his elegant club, complete with state-of-the-art equipment, exercise studios, entertainment systems and all the other amenities that should portray instant success, wasn’t enough to bring in the needed revenue. He called in industry expert, Jim Thomas of Fitness Management & Consulting to shape things up for the arrival of the first quarter of 2006, the peak period in the industry.



Springfield, MO (PRWEB) April 22, 2006



In July of 2004, Kevin Walker - an accomplished personal trainer, former Mr. Missouri, and the coach of a "Body-for-Life" champion - took the plunge. He opened his multi-purpose "health club,” Club Nutrition and Fitness, in Springfield, Missouri. He quickly found out that running a health club was a dramatic departure from his previous in-depth experience in the personal training business.



The club fell far short of its targeted sales in the first year and a half, and Walker found himself taking on 12 to 17 personal training clients a day just to help keep needed revenue coming in.



He soon realized that although gym marketing and sales weren’t necessarily his forte, they were going to be indispensable for survival. According to Walker, “I was concerned about new member acquisition, and also the loss of members, which wasn't terrible but we didn't achieve what we wanted that first year."



After completing his first sub-par year, and with the prospects for the second year looking just as grim, Walker pondered the idea of bringing in an outside expert. He quickly sent a call for help to Jim Thomas of Fitness Management & Consulting. As the founder and president of Fitness Management & Consulting, Thomas has over 25 years of experience owning, operating and managing health clubs of all sizes. He specializes in management consulting, sales consulting, marketing and turnarounds of gyms of all sizes.



Thomas is no stranger to these types of situations, having helped innumerable club owners since he starting consulting in 1989. "More often than not, the club is losing money, wondering if they can stay in business, and a lot of the time they're just worn out, they've run out of options, run out of ideas and don't know which direction to turn.”



Thomas explains that troubled clubs are generally lacking proven systems and procedures. There are overlapping duties in some areas and wide gaps in other critical areas. "The first thing we recommend we do is come in and do an operational analysis. During that process, the client and I get to know each other and based on that chemistry and the information that's provided by the analysis, we make a mutual decision to move forward or not."



The Innovative Use of Multi-Media to Keep Costs Down



Most small independent clubs don't have the financial resources to "fly in" qualified consultants for extended periods. To cope with this Thomas came up with the novel option of substituting some of the follow-on consultation visits with telephone conference calls. He also makes copious use of e-mail, constantly sending updates on best practices to his client base.



"The telephone consulting came about as a way to bridge this gap. My thought was that I wanted to help these independent clubs compete with these big operations…and we have."



Through research and trial and error, we finally understood how telephone consulting could provide a great service. A lot of these small clubs get isolated, there's no one to talk to. Obviously they can't call their competitor. We can be that 'sounding board', we become that resource center and we can help shorten that learning curve. And, most importantly, save them their hard earned money."



Punching Through the Sales Plateau



Effective marketing is a key factor in turnaround situations. When Thomas first sat down with Club Nutrition and Fitness, his first observation was that there just weren’t enough prospects coming through the door. As Walker recalls, Jim wanted a constant effort. "First thing he said, it's your lack of consistency with advertising. You're hitting it hard here and there, but you're not 'consistent' each and every month."



Although marketing is crucial, Thomas insisted that the advertising budget not be raised. Instead he recommended different layout and print vendors. The club was able to save substantially on that aspect of advertising and money was reallocated to more frequent direct mail drops. Most importantly, though the mailers in the past were "pretty" and grammatically correct, they weren't motivating prospects to come visit the club. With a little critical "wordsmithing," Thomas vastly increased the effectiveness of the mailer, and got the necessary number of prospects coming through the door.



Another challenge was that Club Nutrition and Fitness had no sales manager in place.



It was evident to Thomas that it would take too long to set up the procedures to source an effective sales manager. Instead, he used existing resources, i. e. the front desk staff, to close new memberships. Thomas immediately instituted simple scripts, procedures and incentives for the front desk staff. He even tweaked the club tour so that it was more systematic.



A Record Quarter



The results of the new procedures and training were beyond all expectations. January showed a 37% improvement over the previous year. The uplift continued into February and March, with each month showing a 30% improvement. What's truly remarkable is that the new membership sales were made almost entirely by college-aged front desk personnel.



Walker summarized the whole experience, “6 months ago I was out of ideas on how to improve our situation, now we're breaking sales records and I'm sleeping better at night. None of this would have happened if I didn't make that call and bring in an expert like Jim.”



About Fitness Management & Consulting



Fitness Management & Consulting is a consulting firm specializing in health club business consulting and turnarounds. Areas of practice include management training and procedures, sales and marketing systems and training, and operations. It’s founder, Jim Thomas, has over 25 years of experience in all aspects of club ownership and management.



Recently, the firm initiated a new method of consulting that makes abundant use of the phone, email and other multi-media. This removes a lot of the costs normally associated with quality consulting so that clients can get great value.

Red Rice Yeast a Natural Alternative to Lowering High Cholesterol

Red Rice Yeast a Natural Alternative to Lowering High Cholesterol



Red rice yeast, a natural ingredient found to lower cholesterol. Red rice yeast extract offers a natural alternative to those concerned about issues of lowering high cholesterol. HealthyChoiceNaturals, a trusted provider of natural alternatives to prescription drugs, recently found in their research that red rice yeast provided results in lowering bad cholesterol, while increasing good cholesterol.



San Clemente, CA (PRWEB) May 5, 2007



To date, about or greater than 50 million



American adults have blood cholesterol levels high enough to require medical advice and treatment and continuously counting, more than 90 million adults have cholesterol levels that are higher than what is desired.



A main concern of those trying to lower cholesterol levels for good health was the side effects and dangers of statin drugs. HealthyChoiceNaturals (http://www. healthychoicenaturals. com/p-20-23-CHOLCARE. aspx? source=PrChol2&utm_source=PrChol2&utm_source=clickads&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=cholesterol), a trusted provider of natural alternatives to prescription drugs, recently found in their research that red rice yeast provided results in lowering bad cholesterol, while increasing good cholesterol.



"The question to go natural in combating high cholesterol is no longer a difficult one to answer." More than 100 million prescriptions are written for LDL lowering statin drugs annually. With the array of negative side effects of these often dangerous drugs, solving your cholesterol problem

Naturally may be a far more wise decision.



The Hong Qu or the red rice yeast (http://www. healthychoicenaturals. com/p-20-23-CHOLCARE. aspx? source=PrChol2&utm_source=PrChol2&utm_source=clickads&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=cholesterol) is one good example of a natural cholesterol combatant. The Food and Drugs Administration believes that this natural substance originating from China can indeed inhibit cholesterol building in the human body. The Monacolin-K component found in red rice yeast is acting as the inhibitor of the enzyme known as HMG-Coa reductase, which acts as the cholesterol trigger. As a matter of fact, with the conclusion of the 12-week study conducted at the UCLA School of Medicine, where respondents were randomly receiving an amount of red yeast rice, the study has arrived at the following benefits that the human heart can receive from using this natural substance.



There was a significant reduction in the total cholesterol levels; there was a lower level of LDL or the commonly termed "bad" cholesterol; there was an increase in the HDL level known as the good cholesterol; and it reduced the level of unhealthy fats called triglycerides.

"The study showed that the red rice yeast appeared to be restricting the liver's production of cholesterol." The compound responsible for this effect is chemically similar to the cholesterol lowering compound lovastatin (http://www. healthychoicenaturals. com/p-20-23-CHOLCARE. aspx? source=PrChol2&utm_source=PrChol2&utm_source=clickads&utm_medium=pressrelease&utm_campaign=cholesterol).



The unsaturated fatty acids found to present in the red yeast rice extract are also found to be useful to lower down the level of triglycerides. "The red yeast rice extract may help mitigate heart disease occurrences" and their associated complications because of its effects in decreasing cholesterol content in the human body.



New developments will be expected about the wonders of this natural element in the coming years.



HealthyChoiceNaturals has received numerous testimonials from customers about Cholesterol Care™ about red rice yeast and how it has changed their lives.

Pure Revolution Delivers Safe Drinking Water to Rural Mozambique

Pure Revolution Delivers Safe Drinking Water to Rural Mozambique



Non-electric Custom-designed Water Purification System Helps Improve Health and Economic Development



Las Vegas (Vocus) September 3, 2009



Today, Pure Revolution reveals its solution to address the extremely unsafe water conditions in rural Mozambique. These conditions were having a long-range health and economic impact on its people, so Pure Revolution custom-designed a PureOFlow water purification system (http://www. pureoflow. com). This system, which was donated a few weeks ago to a remote village in Mozambique is already improving conditions for its citizens.



Mozambique's limited access to raw water supplies makes it dependent on its neighbors upstream for about 50 percent of its surface water. Roughly 75 percent of the population in Mozambique relies on groundwater sources. Mozambique is also particularly vulnerable to cyclical natural disasters (e. g. floods and drought).



According to published reports, only about 43 percent of the Mozambican population has access to an improved water source, and only 32 percent has access to adequate sanitation. UNICEF reported a few years ago that unsafe water and poor sanitation were responsible for almost 55 childhood deaths daily. Furthermore, it reported that the country had one of the highest child mortality rates in the world: 246 out of every 1000 live births die within their first five years. Thirteen percent of these deaths were directly attributable to a lack of access to clean water, proper sanitation and poor hygiene practices.



Tom Cartwright, CEO of Pure Revolution says, "While the main causes of death are Diarrhea and Cholera, let's not forget that this region of the world has high-prevalence rates of HIV/AIDS, and particularly in Cholera-affected regions."



Although actual figures on access to safe water vary by source, lack of access to water is undeniably one of the major causes behind the cycle of poverty. The supply of safe water is important to the development of any country because it supports public health, which ensures economic growth. In rural areas of Mozambique, women and children spend hours collecting water - energy and time that could otherwise be spent productively in school or at work.



The attached pictures were taken in a small rural town in Mozambique where PureOFlow custom-designed and delivered at no charge, a non-electric water purification system for the people in this village. Up until now, their water was so bad they could not even grow their own crops. After the PureOFlow system was installed two weeks ago, they have clean, healthy and safe drinking water (http://www. pureoflow. com) along with water for irrigating their fields using two modified LifeOPure systems with special pretreatment.



The PureOFlow reverse osmosis (http://www. pureoflow. com) (RO) system removes up to 98 percent of the substances found in water both natural -- such as hard water salts, and manmade contaminants. Unlike any other water purification system on the market, PureOFlow utilizes a special membrane technology through an exclusive licensing agreement with GE. As water passes through a PureOFlow system containing a series of membranes, particles as small as 1,000th the width of a human hair are eliminated along with any trace-amounts of contaminants in drinking water. This revolutionary technology is a new approach to water purification that delivers desalination and purification in one system, offering the most resourceful and cost-efficient water purification on the market.



Adds Cartwright, "There are three to five people living in a Mozambique household. Most of the community members are not working, and cannot afford their own supply system for cooking, washing, bathing, etc., so they are getting water from shared sources such as a school or church borehole, community well, etc. Even then, it is not always safe for drinking."



As cited in World Bank's ''Water Services and Institutional Support'' project, ''the numbers for rural access are derived from the number of boreholes and an estimated average number of households using a borehole.''



See attached chart for water and sanitation by area.



About Pure Revolution

As a company, Pure Revolution envisions a future where the world's fresh water crisis is addressed and managed through home technologies. With the PureOFlow whole-house/whole-business reverse osmosis water purification system, bottled water, household water softeners and at-sink filters become unnecessary, saving homeowners money and reducing waste. The Pure Revolution line of PureOFlow products represents the best solution to address today's economic and environmental concerns related to greener, cleaner water solutions, as well as offering a valuable solution to water softener bans across the nation. PureOFlow systems satisfy all of these concerns by generating ROI and contributing positively to the environment. It is truly the perfect time for this product.



More than 1,000 businesses have trusted PureOFlow technology to provide purified water efficiently and cost-effectively to their customers. For more information visit http://www. pureoflow. com (http://www. pureoflow. com)], or call (702) 834-6570.

Premier of the Ground Breaking Anti-Aging Formula: Agele Organic Platinum Restorative Now Available Online

Premier of the Ground Breaking Anti-Aging Formula: Agele Organic Platinum Restorative Now Available Online



The ground breaking “Agele.” is the organic platinum anti-aging skin care pure formula made available online June 2, 2006.



Tampa, FL (PRWEB) June 3, 2006



The ground breaking “Agele.” is the NEW organic platinum anti-aging skin care pure formulas now available online at www. pureagele. com. The formula lets the body produce maximum new cellular regeneration through organic, natural, scientifically selected and formulated, herbal plant ingredients. Although a premium anti-aging product, the pure natural and organic skin care product line is geared toward the entire family. It began when Agele. founder, LaShone Renee, decided she had enough of testing various skin care products on her son who was born with asthma, allergies and eczema. Renee brought her more than 9 year career experience in the biotech field to explore better options for natural skin care products.



“I knew through my association with major biotech firms in the Bay area, clinical trials in the labs did not tell the whole story. They most often ignored anything ‘natural’ or ‘chemical free.’ It just did not make sense that if we are supposed to eat healthy and chemical free, why would we want to put anything less that that on our skin? ” said Renee. "I thought it was possible to create a skin care line for the entire family that not only offered quality natural skin care, but also had replenishing qualities.” Renée’s mission soon bought on board Alain Sankofa, who had more than 10 years of experience in the beauty and cosmetic industry. “We knew we wanted to create the essence of clean, healthy, regenerating and most of all, a natural supplement. We did that with Agele.,” Renee said.



Renee and Sankofa blended their knowledge of the science and beauty industry to begin researching natural alternates with skilled chemist Dr. Shiail Shikakra of Washington, DC. The team spent four years of intense research and product development to produce the Agele. skin and makeup product line. “The clinical trials and tests gave us remarkable results of rapid cellular regeneration capabilities that instantly improve skin, said Renee.”Now we are excited to share it with the public.”



Industry beauty experts agree the need for natural products is huge and vastly underdeveloped.



“A beauty product such as Agele. is winner in today’s market place, “ said Leslie Meyer, professor of bio chemistry and natural science. “It stays true to its focus of using natural ingredients to produce a product that offers restorative qualities - especially for many age groups and skin types. Even at a glance the product label tells you that what is NOT in the product is as important as what IS in the product. Often people think just being natural makes it good. What makes a natural product great is combining the scientific research to substantiate why particular ingredients are blended - and the proven results.



"In that regard,” Hutchinson added, “Agele. hits the mark.”



Agele. CEO LaShone also believes Agele. hits the market for organic and natural skin care for the entire family. “We are offering a “Lifetime” money back guarantee on all our products,” said Renee. “That is how much we believe Agele.? will prove invaluable to our clients.”



Agele. does not contain mineral oil, petroleum, propylene glycol, DPG, harsh detergents, drying DS alcohol, formaldehydes, lanolin, or Parabens. For more information, call 1- (877) Agele. My (877-243-5339 )or write 8350 Wilshire Blvd. Suite 200, Beverly Hills, CA 90211 or www. PureAgele. com

Baxa Corporation has been named a finalist for the 2007 Best Companies to Work for in Colorado.

This second-annual statewide program is based on responses received to an electronic survey by the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM). Baxa Corporation's Colorado-based associates completed the surveys in April. Best Company finalists promote the best employment opportunities in the state -- attracting new workers and promoting their retention.



"We have always promoted a healthy balance between achieving business goals and quality of life," stated Laurel Ditson, VP of Organizational Development, "and the survey results validate our efforts." A summary of the responses was shared with all associates through Baxa Corporation's bi-weekly newsletter. Thanking each associate who took the time to respond to the survey, Ditson continued, "It is rewarding to have the Best Company recognition, but the most important aspect of this process was knowing that our associates feel that their work is rewarding and that Baxa is a great place to come to work every day."



The SHRM Colorado State Council announced the finalists for the Best Companies designation in June. Rankings for the 2007 Best Companies to Work for in Colorado will be released at the SHRM awards luncheon on July 31, 2007, at the BelMar Center in Lakewood, Colorado. 9News Business News Reporter Gregg Moss will serve again this year as the event's master of ceremonies.



The annual competition recognizes participants in two different categories: medium-sized (25-199 employees) and large-sized (200 employees or more). With just over 400 employees worldwide, Baxa is in the large-sized employers' category. All ranking companies were evaluated and chosen by the Best Companies Group for the long-term benefits their participation brings to Colorado.
