    Radware Provides Internet Stability and Reliable Service to New York Law SchoolLinkProof integrated into BlackBoard supports and maintains Internet traffic for more than 1,500 students and faculty

    MAHWAH, N.J.; Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Radware , the leading provider of integrated application delivery solutions for business-smart networking, today announced that New York Law School, the second oldest independent law school in the U.S., has integrated its LinkProof® load balancing solution into its online course management system, BlackBoard. By deploying LinkProof, New York Law School enables students, faculty and administrators to maximize daily productivity by providing them continuous access to online educational resources and coursework.

    Network disruptions and connection failures initiated New York Law School's interest in implementing Radware's LinkProof system. The multi-WAN load balancer allows the school to divert network traffic issues, by circumventing network bottlenecks that are often caused by service-provider outages, or a mismanagement of users' bandwidth consumption. Additionally, LinkProof offers an 'on demand' feature, which plays a key role in allowing IT administrators to add, manage and load-balance multiple Internet service provider's connections, in response to growing student, faculty and administrative bandwidth needs.

    "Since we installed LinkProof, our students and faculty has been able to conduct day-to-day activities and research without any interruption," said Joseph Compagno, Director of Strategic Infrastructure Development, New York Law School. "It has allowed us to offer expanded web hosting capabilities, which has resulted in greater streaming and cloud computing opportunities, and a higher level of user satisfaction."

    Since deploying LinkProof, New York Law School has significantly reduced its management overhead and has been able to streamline the configuration of its network protocols, resulting in further cost savings. Another added benefit includes enhanced network security capabilities, which alleviate a wide variety of vulnerability-based attacks (e.g., worms, Trojans, Bots), non-vulnerability threats and zero-minute attacks (e.g., application misuse attacks, application and network flooding) via its Intrusion Prevention module.

    "Working with New York Law School, we were able to provide a flexible load balancing solution that enhanced service by offering network stability of its online and wireless Internet traffic," said Eitan Bremler, Product Marketing Manager, Radware. "Radware has worked vigorously to develop its sophisticated LinkProof product, which enabled New York Law School to eliminate the concern of its network going down, or stopping the flow of learning and business activities."

    By utilizing its proximity-based routing, LinkProof ensures best path selection, dynamic application-based load balancing of both incoming and outgoing traffic, and application bandwidth management. As a result, it has the ability to guarantee full path transaction completion.

    New York Law School worked with Prevalent Networks, an IT consulting company that works with the leaders in governance, risk, infrastructure, and compliance to deliver solutions that create "information anywhere, security everywhere"(TM).

    "Prevalent Networks selected Radware for NYLS' key WAN solution because of their scalability, redundancy, and WAN optimization features," stated John Polise, Regional Director. "Radware has proven itself with one of the best WAN load balancing solutions on the market with a highly trained support staff to assist."

    Radware's LinkProof solutions are part of the Company's Business-Smart Data Center strategy, which is based on an approach to offer a range of innovative capabilities inclusive of pay-as-you-grow procurement models and a series of compelling 'on demand' platforms.

    Pure Technologies Ltd. Actualités de l'entreprise

    CALGARY, Canada, January 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Pure Technologies Ltd., TSX-V: PUR, vient faire le communiqué suivant sur ses activités commerciales en 2009 et ses prévisions pour 2010 basées sur les résultats financiers préliminaires non audités :

    - Le chiffre d'affaires annuel prévu sera supérieur de 35 % par rapport aux 22,2 millions de dollars en 2008. Ces chiffres ont pu être réalisés grâce à la croissance de l'ensemble des aspects de notre activité.

    - L'EBE, pertes de change exclues, dont la croissance est prévue à plus de 125 % du 1,7 million de dollars de 2008.

    - Les ventes annuelles récurrentes qui devraient atteindre environ 3,5 millions de dollars, comparé aux 2,5 millions de dollars pour 2008.

    - La marge brute prévue pour l'année qui devrait continuer à dépasser plus de 60 %.

    Le chiffre total du carnet de commandes confirmées (contrats en place) plus les attributions de contrats notifiés, s'élève actuellement à 33,5 millions de dollars, ventes récurrentes exclues. D'après la visibilité actuelle, nous prévoyons de maintenir un taux de chiffre d'affaires élevé et une augmentation de l'EBE sur 2010, à l'exclusion de l'impact de toute acquisition qui pourrait être réalisée au cours de l'année.

    Nous avons identifié les secteurs et régions suivants qui, nous l'espérons, aideront à notre développement, outre nos marchés actuels, sur 2010 et au-delà :

    - détection des fuites, inspection et évaluation des conditions sur le secteur des eaux usées :

    nous espérons générer des opportunités en conséquence du renforcement de la surveillance réglementaire, en particulier aux États-Unis où l'Agence pour la Protection de l'Environnement met en oeuvre des décrets d'accord pour les organismes de traitement des eaux usées comme moyen de remédier aux problèmes des engorgements d'égouts et des déversements. Le marché des eaux usées est au moins aussi vaste que celui de l'eau et souffre d'un manque de contrôle efficace et de technologies d'évaluation des conditions. Nous nous appuierons sur notre équipement robotique récemment acquis, ainsi sur les outils Smartball(R) et de nouveaux outils d'inspection qui seront prochainement introduits, pour établir une présence solide sur ce secteur.

    L'acquisition de Jason Consultants fin 2009 nous permet d'ajouter de la valeur à nos offres technologiques dans l'espace comme l'a fait Openaka sur le marché des canalisations précontraintes.

    - Mexique et Amérique du Sud :

    En 2009, nous avons développé nos activités commerciales de manière importante sur le marché des canalisations à large diamètre dans ces régions et nous espérons que cet investissement donnera lieu à une augmentation de notre activité commerciale au prochain trimestre.

    - Moyen-Orient :

    L'établissement de notre bureau à Abu Dhabi nous permet de poursuivre notre activité de services au Moyen-Orient où la sensibilité au besoin d'économiser les ressources en eau est de plus en plus exacerbée.

    Nous prévoyons actuellement plusieurs projets de démonstration SmartBall(R) et nous recherchons également des relais de gestion des pipelines de large diamètre.

    Nous prévoyons un chiffre d'affaires non négligeable généré dans la région en 2010.

    - Asie de l'Est :

    Par le biais de notre partenaire chinois, Nanjing Hydraulic Research Institute, nous avons identifié plusieurs relais potentiels d'inspection et de surveillance de pipelines à forte valeur. Nous mettons actuellement en place un bureau à Hong Kong en partenariat avec une société locale pour garantir ces relais et pour développer notre activité générale d'inspection et de surveillance à Hong Kong en Chine et à Taiwan.

    Malgré une diminution à court terme de nos réserves liquides afin d'assurer le nombre croissant de nos commandes en attente, notre position en termes de fonds de roulement devrait considérablement se renforcer au cours de l'année. Nous prévoyons de maintenir notre engagement en matière d'investissements recherche et développement et dans le développement des activités à l'international. Nous continuerons à rechercher les opportunités d'acquisitions.

    À PROPOS DE PURE TECHNOLOGIES LTD.

    Pure Technologies Ltd est une société internationale de services et de technologie qui a développé des technologies brevetées pour l'inspection, la surveillance et la gestion des infrastructures critiques dans le monde.

    Sino-Forest Acquires HOMIX LIMITED, an R&D and Recomposed Wood Manufacturer in China

    TORONTO, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Sino-Forest Corporation (TSX: TRE), a leading commercial forest plantation operator in China, announced the acquisition by one of its wholly-owned subsidiaries of HOMIX LIMITED ("HOMIX"), a company engaged in research & development and manufacturing of engineered-wood products in China, for an aggregate amount of US$7.1 million. The acquisition includes the company's facilities in mainland China and its patents. The transaction was funded with cash on hand.

    HOMIX has an R&D laboratory and two engineered-wood production operations based in Guangzhou and Jiangsu Provinces, covering eastern and southern China wood product markets. The company has developed a number of new technologies with patent rights, specifically suitable for domestic plantation logs including poplar and eucalyptus species. HOMIX specializes in curing, drying and dyeing methods for engineered wood and has the know-how to produce recomposed wood products and laminated veneer lumber. Recomposed wood technology is considered to be environment-friendly and versatile as it uses fibre from forest plantations, recycled wood and/or wood residue. This reduces the traditional use of large-diameter trees from natural forests. There is growing demand for recomposed wood technology as it reduces cost for raw material while increases the utilization and sustainable use of plantation fibre for the production of furniture and interior/exterior building materials.

    The People's Republic of China ("PRC") State Forestry Administration has indicated in its Plan for Revitalization of the Forestry Industry (2010-2012) that efficient and creative use of forest raw material in China is relatively low. The assurance rate of forest raw materials for wood-based panels is less than 30%, and the technology contribution rate of the forest industry in 2008 was only 39%. Therefore, the central government's intention is to develop and modernize the wood processing manufacturing industry, improve the quality of wood-based products and maximize wood fibre usage.

    Mr. Allen Chan, Sino-Forest's Chairman & CEO, said, "As we continue to ramp up our replanting programme with improved eucalyptus species, it is important for Sino-Forest to continue investing in the research and development that maximizes all aspects of the forest product supply chain. Modernization and improved productivity of the wood processing industry in China is also necessary given the country's chronic wood fibre deficit. Increased use of technology improves operation efficiency, and maximizes and broadens the use of domestic plantation wood, which reduces the need for logging domestic natural forests and for importing logs from strained tropical forests. HOMIX has significant technological capabilities in engineered-wood processing."

    Mr. Chan added, "By acquiring HOMIX, we intend to use six-year eucalyptus fibre instead of 30-year tree fibre from other species to produce quality lumber using recomposed technology. We believe that this will help preserve natural forests as well as improve the demand for and pricing of our planted eucalyptus trees."

    About HOMIX LIMITED

    HOMIX is a sole proprietorship company registered in the British Virgin Islands. It controls two engineered-wood manufacturing enterprises in mainland China: Guangzhou Panyu Dacheng Wood Co., Ltd ("Dacheng") and Jiangsu Dayang Wood Co., Ltd ("Dayang"). Dacheng has over 10 years of production and operating history in the Pearl River Delta, and is involved in R&D and production, serving the developed furniture and wood product industries. Dayang is located in the Yangtze Delta in the Jiangsu Suqian Economic Development Zone. Its operations encompass a land area of more than 100 mu (about 7 hectares), and its factory floor area is about 14,000 square meters with a designed annual capacity of 20,000 cubic meters. Jiangsu Suqian is an important base for the cultivation and plantation of poplar in China.

    About Sino-Forest Corporation

    Sino-Forest is a leading commercial forest plantation operator in China. Its principal businesses include the ownership and management of forest plantation trees, the sale of standing timber and wood logs, and the complementary manufacturing of downstream engineered-wood products. The Company's common shares have traded on the Toronto Stock Exchange under the symbol TRE since 1995.

    Please note: This news release contains projections and forward-looking statements regarding future events. Such forward-looking statements are not guarantees of future performance of the Company and are subject to risks and uncertainties that could cause actual results and company plans and objectives to differ materially from those expressed in the forward-looking statements. Such risks and uncertainties include, but not limited to, changes in China and international economies; changes in currency exchange rates; changes in worldwide demand for the Company's products; changes in worldwide production and production capacity in the forest products industry; competitive pricing pressures for the Company's products and changes in wood and timber costs.

    TBILISI, Georgia, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Home & Networks Mobility business of Motorola, Inc. today announced it has signed a contract to deliver network optimization services that will further enhance performance of MagtiCom's entire 2G network in Georgia, using Motorola's intelligent optimization service (IOS). This new contract continues the longstanding relationship between MagtiCom and Motorola, who last year delivered a successful 3G optimization service for MagtiCom.

    Under the new IOS contract, Motorola's services team will help MagtiCom to build an accurate picture of network performance from the end users' point of view, enabling MagtiCom to deliver a high-quality, cost-effective service to its growing number of subscribers. The solution is also designed to reduce dropped calls, resulting in less subscriber churn. In addition to increased network availability, Motorola's IOS will also enable an easier introduction of new data services or additional voice capacity.

    "Our customers are at the heart of our business. We want to deliver the most advanced customer services and are always looking for ways to improve the end-user experience. Motorola is a trusted partner of MagtiCom, and we believe that the solutions provided by Motorola will greatly optimize our network performance and ultimately consumer experience," said David Lee, general director of MagtiCom.

    Motorola's IOS will improve the customer experience and satisfaction through enhanced voice quality across the network, improved network performance stability and reduced levels of interference.

    Alcan Aluminium Low Density Alloys Selected as a Critical Material for the Orion Crew Exploration Vehicle

    PARIS, January 12 /PRNewswire/ -- Alcan Global Aerospace Transportation and Industry (Alcan Global ATI), part of Alcan Engineered Products - a business unit of Rio Tinto - is set to become the leading supplier of advanced aluminium-lithium (Al-Li) lightweight materials for the Orion crew exploration vehicle being built by Lockheed Martin as part of NASA's Constellation Program. Orion is being designed to carry astronauts to the International Space Station and other destinations, including the moon.

    After a two-year materials study, which included composites, Alcan's Low Density Alloys were chosen for the Orion crew module at NASA's Orion Project preliminary design review in August 2009. The preliminary design review was one of a series of checkpoints that occurs in the design lifecycle of a complex engineering project before hardware manufacturing can begin. The decision confirms that new alloys will be a key structural material in the Constellation Program, which is being designed by NASA and its contractors to replace the space shuttle for a new era of space exploration. Having selected materials, NASA will now proceed toward the critical design review phase of Orion.

    Low density alloys' advantages include proven reliability and safety in space - vital in designing a module for astronauts - and less risk of program delays that might arise when certifying new materials. Al-Li alloys' inherent low density, high-specific stiffness, strength and excellent mechanical properties are expected to offer significant weight savings and predictable cost performance.

    "The selection of Alcan as the leading supplier of Low Density Alloys for the Orion crew module confirms the great success story of Alcan's leading edge, innovative alloys and aluminium solutions," said Christophe Villemin, Alcan Global ATI President. "It also highlights Alcan's long and close partnership with Lockheed Martin in aerospace materials innovation," Villemin added.

    "We are glad to extend use of these strong lightweight Alcan alloys to NASA's next generation spacecraft," said Jim Bray, Lockheed Martin director for Orion Crew and Service Module. "They are crucial for meeting mission objectives that include human travel to the moon and Mars."

    Two alloys are base-lined to have a key role in construction of the crew module that will carry astronauts into space and return them safely to Earth.

    Al-Li 2195 will be used for main, load-bearing structural components called longerons. The material is well proven in space applications, having been used on the space shuttle external tanks to boost America's shuttle into orbit since 1998.

    Additionally, a new and innovative proprietary Al-Li alloy developed by Alcan, designated 2050, will be used for the very first time in space. Available in plate form and offering advantages of toughness and strength, combined with a four per cent density reduction, it will be used for other structural components including frames, ribs and window sections. Alloy 2050 has full Metallic Material Properties Development and Standardization, as well as Aerospace Material Specifications documentation.

    Shipments of 2050 plate for Orion from Ravenswood, West Virginia, began in December 2009. Shipments of 2195 alloys from the Montreuil-Juigné and Issoire plants in France will take place early 2010.

    Alcan Global ATI has a proven track record in space programmes, through its partnerships with NASA and their subcontractors and the European Space Agency (ESA). The space shuttle, Ariane 5 and future space exploration and launcher programs all will rely upon Alcan materials.

    Alcan Global ATI employs over 4000 people and has manufacturing plants in Europe and North America. A world leader in the production of aerospace plates, Alcan Global ATI provides its customers with its entire portfolio of advanced lightweight aluminium solutions. Thanks to its global R&D, manufacturing and commercial reach, Alcan Global ATI is able to build long-term supply and innovative technology partnerships with major aerospace leaders.

    California American Water Partners With Local Law Enforcement to Prevent Water TheftIn cooperation with Ventura County's Sheriff Department and District Attorney, California American Water works to stop illegal water use

    NEWBURY PARK, Calif., Jan. 12 /PRNewswire/ -- California American Water announced today that it is on the lookout for instances of water theft, a crime that often occurs when water is taken from a fire hydrant without the required authorizations. In conjunction with the Ventura County District Attorney's Office, California American Water hosted a briefing for the Ventura County Sheriff's Department covering topics including: the mechanics of water theft; what to look for in the field; and how the company is working to prevent individuals from stealing water.

    "Water theft certainly accounts for a portion of our water losses," said Al Yanez, California American Water's Operations Manager in Ventura County. "We understand there are legitimate reasons for the use of water from a fire hydrant; however, there is a process in place for obtaining permission to use that water."

    Contractors who need to use water from a fire hydrant for any project are required to apply for and obtain a hydrant meter from California American Water. Applications are available at California American Water's local office in Newbury Park, located at 2439 West Hillcrest Drive, between the hours of 8:30 a.m. and 4 p.m. Once an application is approved, California American Water will issue a portable water meter, which ensures that any water taken from a fire hydrant will be measured and billed.

    California American Water wants people to understand that taking water from an unmetered source, including fire hydrants, without the appropriate tools and approval is against the law. Unless they are with the fire department, hydrants are off-limits without prior authorization.

    "It is important to maintain the integrity of our water supply. Contractors and individuals who violate the law will be prosecuted in all provable cases," said Karen Wold, Senior Deputy District Attorney.

    California American Water's briefing is another step in helping reduce water losses and part of the company's ongoing partnership with local law enforcement agencies. "We've received a positive response from the Sheriff's Department and the District Attorney's Office," said Yanez. "Everyone understands the importance of addressing water theft and saving water in Ventura County."

    All of California American Water's field staff have been trained to investigate fire hydrant use. When company representatives find a hydrant connection without a meter they are trained to notify local law enforcement.

    California American Water, a wholly owned subsidiary of American Water , provides high-quality and reliable water and/or wastewater services to more than 600,000 people. California American Water's Ventura service district includes approximately 20,000 households and businesses, thereby supplying water to approximately 60,000 people in the cities of Camarillo, Newbury Park and Thousand Oaks.

    Founded in 1886, American Water is the largest investor-owned U.S. water and wastewater utility company. With headquarters in Voorhees, N.J., the company employs more than 7,000 dedicated professionals who provide drinking water, wastewater and other related services to approximately 15 million people in 32 states and Ontario, Canada.

    Cavitation Technologies, Inc. Is Unveiling Renewable Fuel Technology for Algae Oil

    LOS ANGELES, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Cavitation Technologies, Inc. (CTI) (OTC Bulletin Board: CVAT; Berlin/ Stuttgart: WTC) is pleased to announce filing a Nonprovisional Utility Patent Application titled "Method for Processing an Algae to Produce Algal Oil and By-Products", CTI successfully completed development and testing of its Algae reactor. This technology is able to extract oil from Algae on a continuous basis for commercial applications, resulting in another renewable fuel technology from CTI. The algae industry is poised to dominate the world of biofuels and we are prepared to participate in supplying the world with what we believe to be the most advanced technology.

    Algae are among the fastest growing plants in the world, and about 50 percent of their weight is oil. That lipid oil can be used to make biodiesel for cars, trucks, and possibly even jet fuel for airplanes. One of the great things about using algae is that it's not used as food so it's easy to avoid the spiking of cost as demand increases. In the past we've seen rising prices with corn based ethanol or soy bean based biodiesel as demand soared. Other benefits of using algae as a source of renewable energy is the fact that it doesn't require clean water like farm crops, and in some cases doesn't even need fresh water. Additionally, algae are nearly CO2 neutral as it is extremely efficient at turning the CO2 in the air into algae oil during the photosynthesis process. Oil extraction from algae is currently a hotly debated topic because this process is one of the more costly processes which can determine the sustainability of algae-based biodiesel; with our application we are able to cut costs.

    In terms of the concept, the idea is quite simple: Harvest the algae from its growth medium (using an appropriate separation process), and extract the oil out of it. Extraction can be broadly categorized into mechanical methods as well as chemical methods. The most efficient method is cavitation based extraction. By utilizing CTI's cavitation reactor, the extraction processes can be greatly accelerated. CTI's Nano reactor is used to create cavitation bubbles in a solvent material, when these bubbles collapse near the cell walls it creates shock waves and liquid jets that cause those cells walls to break and release their contents into the solvent.

    Algae is often referred to as the "Ultimate" renewable energy source, we are excited to offer a technology that refines and accelerates the process considerably. Cavitation Technologies, Inc prides itself on creating solutions and applications in industries where there are significant environmental issues and/or there is a need to reduce costs and improve profitability. CTI is looking to license our technologies to qualified companies and individuals, if you would like to learn more about the opportunity please contact us at: info@cavitationtechnologies.com

    Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association Enhances its Certification Program with NetDimensions' EKP LMS

    HONG KONG, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-Asia-FirstCall/ -- NetDimensions (London Stock Exchange, AIM: NETD), a global provider of performance, knowledge and learning management systems, announced today that the Florida Nursery, Growers & Landscape Association (FNGLA) has successfully implemented the Enterprise Knowledge Platform (EKP) learning management system (LMS) to enhance its professional certification program.

    FNGLA's Certified Horticulture Professional (FCHP) program was recently approved as the recognized industry certification for Florida's high school horticulture programs. In order to accommodate the influx of students seeking certification, FNGLA needed to provide teachers with tools to enhance the current curriculum.

    "While the link between the existing curriculum and industry certification has been established for many years, there are always some gaps when going from academia to industry," said Merry Mott, Director of Industry Certifications of FNGLA.

    FNGLA sought to address the problem by delivering curriculum maps, lesson plans, presentations, student projects and sample tests to teachers through EKP.

    "The functionality of EKP won me over, as well as my committee members, as we were looking at options for delivering both lesson plans and exams," Mott explained.

    "Administering certification exams through EKP will reduce our operating costs and widen our reach."

    Equipping teachers with learning and teaching tools is an essential component in FNGLA's goal to develop skilled and highly knowledgeable students who they hope will enter Florida's nursery and landscape industry and ensure its continued success in the future.

    Through EKP, FNGLA is able to provide more opportunities for students and industry members to pursue certification through online learning, bypassing constraints associated with a conventional classroom setup.

    "I especially like the ability to give each user different access rights, creating a unique experience for each user while maintaining security of the entire system," Mott added.

    The Unique Role of EKP in FNGLA's Future

    While the effects of the financial crisis continue to be felt throughout the industry, FNGLA's program has successfully maintained a consistent number of certified professionals, which ranges between 1,100 and 1,200.

    "We believe EKP will enable us to grow our program over the next two years," said Mott.

    In the long term, FNGLA plans to create training materials for the horticulture industry, including sample tests. The Association also plans to extend its offerings to other agricultural associations, hosting their curriculum and certification exams on EKP.

    "We commend FNGLA's efforts in promoting the horticulture industry in Florida," said Eric Miller, NetDimensions' Account Manager in North America.

Orion est conçu pour emmener des astronautes vers la station spatiale internationale et vers d'autres destinations, notamment la Lune.

    Au cours de la revue préliminaire de la conception du projet, au mois d'août 2009, après deux ans d'études des différents matériaux, notamment les composites, ce sont les alliages de faible densité d'Alcan qui ont été choisis pour le module habité Orion. Cette étape est l'un des nombreux points de passage obligés dans le cycle de vie de ce projet d'ingénierie particulièrement complexe, avant le lancement de la fabrication de la structure. Cette décision confirme que ces nouveaux alliages constitueront un matériau clé du Programme Constellation, conçu par la NASA pour remplacer la navette spatiale actuelle et ouvrir ainsi une nouvelle ère de l'exploration de l'Espace. Après avoir sélectionné les matériaux, la NASA va désormais passer à la phase d'examen critique de la conception d'Orion.

    L'utilisation des alliages de faible densité permet de combiner une fiabilité et une sécurité éprouvées dans l'espace (vitales pour la conception d'un module destiné à accueillir des astronautes) tout en diminuant les risques de retard pouvant survenir lors de la certification de nouveaux matériaux. Les qualités intrinsèques de faible densité, de grande robustesse, de rigidité et les propriétés mécaniques des alliages d'Aluminium Lithium assureront un gain de poids significatif au meilleur coût.

    "Le choix d'Alcan comme fournisseur principal d'alliages de faible densité pour le module habité Orion confirme l'extraordinaire réussite d'Alcan dans les alliages innovants et les solutions avancées en aluminium", déclare Christophe Villemin, président d'Alcan Global ATI. "Il souligne à nouveau le partenariat privilégié que nous avons de longue date avec Lockheed Martin en matière d'innovation dans les matériaux destinés aux domaines aéronautique et spatial", ajoute M. Villemin.

    "Nous sommes heureux d'étendre l'usage de ces alliages légers et résistants d'Alcan à la nouvelle génération de vaisseaux spatiaux de la NASA", déclare Jim Bray, directeur du module de commande et de service (MCS) d'Orion chez Lockheed Martin. "Ils sont essentiels pour atteindre les objectifs de la mission, notamment les vols habités vers la Lune et Mars".

    Deux alliages sont référencés comme ayant un rôle clé dans la construction du module de commande qui enverra les astronautes dans l'Espace et assurera leur retour sur Terre en toute sécurité :

    - Al-Li 2195, utilisé depuis 1998 dans les applications spatiales, notamment les réservoirs externes des navettes. Cet alliage sera utilisé pour les structures de chargement appelées longerons. - Le nouvel alliage innovant Al-Li 2050, développé exclusivement par Alcan et utilisé pour la toute première fois dans l'espace. Combinant ténacité et résistance avec une réduction de densité de 4 %, il sera notamment utilisé pour les châssis, les nervures et les profilés de fenêtre.

    Les premières livraisons d'alliage 2050 pour Orion, à partir de l'usine de Ravenswood (Etats-Unis), ont commencé en décembre dernier ; celles de l'alliage 2195 depuis les usines de Montreuil-Juigné et Issoire (France) démarreront prochainement.

    Alcan Global ATI a déjà fait ses preuves en matière de programmes spatiaux, grâce à ses partenariats avec la NASA, ses sous-traitants ainsi qu'avec l'Agence spatiale européenne (ASE). De ce fait, la navette spatiale américaine, la fusée Ariane 5 et les futurs programmes d'exploration spatiale et de lanceurs feront tous appel aux matériaux Alcan.

    Alcan Global ATI emploie plus de 4 000 personnes et dispose d'usines de fabrication en Europe et en Amérique du Nord. Acteur majeur dans la production de tôles fortes pour l'industrie aéronautique, Alcan Global ATI fournit à ses clients toute une gamme de solutions avancées en aluminium léger.

    QIAGEN Acquires ESE GmbHApplications of Newly Added Molecular Detection Technology Include Point-of-Need Testing in Molecular Diagnostics and Applied Testing

    VENLO, The Netherlands, January 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- QIAGEN N.V. (NASDAQ: QGEN; Frankfurt, Prime Standard: QIA) today announced that it has acquired ESE GmbH, a privately held developer and manufacturer of UV and fluorescence optical measurement devices. ESE is based in Stockach, Germany. The transaction is valued at up to US$19 million in cash.

    ESE has pioneered the development and manufacturing of optical measurement systems for medical and industrial applications. The systems utilize unique, high-performance and award-winning fluorescence detection technologies integrated into compact modules. ESE's solutions are considered as an emerging standard for the detection of fluorescent signals in a wide range of molecular testing applications, most notably in nucleic acid-based point-of-need testing. In addition to portable solutions for point-of-need testing, these miniaturized, low-cost fluorescence detection modules can be integrated in laboratory instruments as well.

    The systems' "ultra-fast time to result" and high portability open new opportunities in healthcare and applied testing (e.g. veterinary, food, environmental, biodefense testing), enabling low-throughput molecular testing in practices, emergency rooms, remote field areas, and other settings where a laboratory infrastructure is not accessible and fast turnaround is required. ESE's fluorescence detection systems can be battery operated, process up to eight samples at a time and even permit testing of samples for several parameters in a single run (multiplex testing). As the proprietary technology allows for the detection modules to be manufactured at very low cost, the complete solutions can sell for less than US$2,000 per unit - significantly below the price of other comparable testing systems.

    QIAGEN has demonstrated that ESE's fluorescence detection systems can be used to measure signals generated by the Company's existing testing technologies, including the HDA and tHDA isothermal assay systems, which QIAGEN has licensed from BioHelix in 2008 (http://www1.qiagen.com/about/pressreleases/PressReleaseView.aspx?PressReleas eID=199 ). These isothermal assay technologies are an integral part of QIAGEN's next generation screening platform QIAensemble. Therefore, assay development for the fluorescence detection systems can benefit from ongoing research activities for the QIAensemble platform.

    QIAGEN has verified the ability of ESE's systems to run HDA-based assays for several pathogens including Salmonella and E.coli bacteria as well as Influenza viruses. Analysis can be performed directly on samples (i.e., from crude blood) or following an upfront sample preparation step integrated into the devices using QIAGEN's proven sample technologies. Depending on the target, such assays can generate results in between 5 and 15 minutes. This represents a key breakthrough allowing the platform to meet the most important requirement in point-of-need testing: ultra-fast time to result.

    The transaction contributes to QIAGEN's strategy of expanding its technology leadership and of driving the dissemination of molecular sample and assay technologies into everyday life. It not only adds a novel detection platform to QIAGEN's portfolio of assay technologies, but also creates options for point-of-need test solutions in select markets. QIAGEN plans to develop and offer such solutions for a broad range of molecular diagnostic segments in Europe, Latin America and Asia. In the United States, QIAGEN intends to focus on select application fields such as acute care (emergency rooms, mobile testing) and critical care areas where rapid turnaround and/or portable solutions are required. These segments generally do not overlap with QIAGEN's current markets in the United States in terms of customers and assay menu. QIAGEN expects its first submissions for regulatory approval of corresponding assays to take place following the launch of clinical systems after 2011. In the developing world, QIAGEN sees a significant opportunity for the technology to expand its offering in infectious disease testing with point-of-need options. Together with PATH and the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, QIAGEN has already developed a version of its HPV test for public health programs in low-resource & developing countries (http://www1.qiagen.com/about/pressreleases/PressReleaseView.aspx?PressReleas eID=217 ) that can be performed without electricity or running water and offers detection results within 2.5 hours.

    (Due to the length of these URLs, it may be necessary to copy and paste the hyperlinks into your Internet browser's URL address field. Remove the space if one exists.)

    Additionally, QIAGEN believes that there are several areas in applied testing which offer significant potential for point-of-need testing solutions. These include animal, food and environmental safety testing, where portability and the ability to be placed in diverse locations are key requirements perfectly addressed by the platform.

    "We are excited about the addition of ESE's capabilities and technology portfolio. We believe it will considerably strengthen QIAGEN's portfolio of detection technologies and help us to better address the needs of our existing customers in a range of application fields. In addition, due to the unique features of ESE's technology, this transaction allows QIAGEN to synergistically apply our sample and assay technologies to the exciting, emerging point-of-need testing market segment," said Peer Schatz, QIAGEN's CEO. "QIAGEN has always been driving the dissemination of molecular biology. With this new technology portfolio, we now have the opportunity to shape a new dimension for molecular testing," Mr Schatz continued.

    "The deal is a great fit for us," said Klaus Haberstroh, founder and CEO of ESE GmbH. "With its leadership in molecular sample and assay technologies, QIAGEN is the ideal partner to capitalize on our development and engineering know-how and to take our technology to the next level."

    QIAGEN will establish ESE's development and manufacturing site in Stockach as a Center of Excellence in Detection Development and intends to retain and expand the employee base.

    QIAGEN anticipates the one-time charges in connection with this acquisition not to exceed US$500,000 in 2010. The transaction is expected to contribute approximately US$6 million in sales in 2010. On an adjusted basis excluding one-time charges, integration and restructuring costs, and amortization of acquisition related intangible assets, the acquisition is expected to be neutral to EPS in 2010.

    "China and ASEAN are major trading partners, with bilateral trade reaching $150 billion in the first nine months of 2009," said Tommy Wong, President of Global Sources Exhibitions.

    "Singapore is already the world's second largest entrepot after Hong Kong, with re-exports of nearly $230 billion in 2008," Wong said. "As a key trading and re-export hub, Singapore is an ideal location for China suppliers to sell to buyers from across the region."

    The shows are expected to benefit from the new regional free trade agreement that comes into effect in January 2010. Under the agreement, more than 7,000 types of China-made products -- accounting for 90 percent of merchandized goods imported to ASEAN -- are to be exempted from tariffs.

    The events are scheduled to feature co-located specialty shows for exhibitors of gifts and premiums; home products; garments and textiles; hardware and building materials; machinery and industrial supplies; and food and beverage. Global Sources estimates the initial events to attract more than 600 supplier booths.

    General Manager of Fuijian Huiyuan, Ruan Weixing, said: "This is a win-win situation for both China's suppliers and Singapore's trade and exhibition industry. We are proud to work with Global Sources to bring the best quality China suppliers to this event. In doing so, we aim to ensure that the China- ASEAN free trade agreement achieves its full potential to build mutually beneficial trade relationships across the region."

    Wong said: "This year, we have scheduled 48 different events across six cities. Our newest shows in Singapore and Johannesburg should help us further support China exporters and buyers worldwide through the highly successful China Sourcing Fairs -- a key component of our online, face-to-face and print media platform."

    Industry-First Technologies, Engaging Design, World-Class Craftsmanship Define 2011 Lincoln MKX-- The 2011 Lincoln MKX luxury crossover features the first application of industry-exclusive MyLincoln Touch(TM) driver connect technology, which creates a whole new way for customers to interact with digital and vehicle technology-- All-new interior showcases use of more luxurious materials and attention to detail; preliminary data show the 2011 Lincoln MKX is quieter than Lexus or Audi competitors-- Powertrain enhancements include a new 3.7-liter Duratec(R) V-6 engine, delivering a best-in-class 305 horsepower and 280 lb.- ft. of torque versus all V-6 competitors - plus unsurpassed fuel economy

    DETROIT, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- New, industry-exclusive technologies and engaging design featuring world-class craftsmanship and materials further elevate the 2011 Lincoln MKX midsize luxury crossover.

    Leading the wide-ranging innovations is the all-new MyLincoln Touch driver connect technology, which delivers a smarter, safer, simpler way to connect drivers with in-car technologies and their digital lives. MyLincoln is standard on the 2011 Lincoln MKX.

    The industry-first MyLincoln Touch experience, powered by Lincoln SYNC®, replaces traditional vehicle buttons, knobs and gauges with clear, crisp LCD screens and five-way buttons like those found on cell phones and MP3 players. The screens can be personalized to display information relevant to each individual driver using a simple button click, voice command or touch screen tap.

    The electronic finish panel on the 2011 Lincoln MKX demonstrates all the advantages of this touch-sensitive technology in a beautiful, engaging package. Activated features display amber light. When turned off, signature Lincoln White lighting is displayed. In addition to the usual audio and climate control features, the touch-sensitive technology also operates the volume and fan controls through sliders, which is exclusive to Lincoln.

    Like the song? You can tag it

    Also new on the 2011 Lincoln MKX is the world's first use of iTunes® Tagging in an available factory-installed HD Radio(TM) receiver. iTunes Tagging provides customers with the ability to "capture" a song they hear on the HD Radio receiver for later purchase. With a simple push of a "TAG" button on the radio display, the song information will be stored in the radio's memory.

    Once a song is tagged and customers dock their iPod to the SYNC system, the "tagged" song information will transfer to that iPod. When the iPod is then synced to iTunes, a playlist of tagged songs will appear. Up to 100 tags on SYNC can be stored until the iPod is connected. When an iPod is connected, the tags are transferred from SYNC to the iPod. Customers then can preview, purchase and download tagged songs from the iTunes Store, if they so choose.

    Fun tuned in while noise is tuned out

    A wealth of upgrades means the 2011 Lincoln MKX will provide a more connected feel between the driver and the road through responsive acceleration, engaging steering, spirited handling and confident braking. The new 18-inch tires have increased grip and are mounted on larger wheels than the outgoing product, helping enable enhanced stopping and improved handling. The springs, shocks and stabilizer bars also have been retuned to give a flatter response through turns and over hills while still providing the comfortable ride luxury buyers expect and demand.

    The original Lincoln MKX set many benchmarks in overall quietness, and that tradition continues as Ford internal preliminary data show the 2011 MKX scores better in speech recognition, wind noise and sound package than competitors from Lexus and Audi.

    Improved performance without sacrificing fuel economy

    Power for the 2011 Lincoln MKX is supplied by the 3.7-liter Duratec V-6, which employs advanced technology and clever control strategies to increase horsepower and torque without compromising fuel economy. The 2011 Lincoln MKX has best-in-class power and torque versus all V-6 competitors with unsurpassed highway fuel economy of 25 mpg - all on regular fuel. Horsepower has been increased to 305 - a 15 percent increase compared with the outgoing product - while torque is up to 280 ft.-lb., marking a 12 percent improvement.

    American Airlines, British Airways, Qantas Airways, Cathay Pacific Airways and the oneworld Alliance Offer USD $2 Billion in Enhanced Commercial Benefits for Japan AirlinesPlan Provides Specific Benefits for Japan Airlines, The Air Travelers and Citizens of Japan

    TOKYO, Jan. 12 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- American Airlines, along with fellow oneworld Alliance founding members British Airways, Qantas Airways and Cathay Pacific Airways, today outlined USD $2 billion in commercial benefits to Japan Airlines (JAL) over three years. The enhanced oneworld proposal would provide JAL the best path to future success while minimizing risk for the Japanese government and taxpayers and maximizing the benefits for air travelers.

    The enhanced, broad-based commercial offer would serve as a key component of a comprehensive, government-led restructuring plan for JAL. As part of the proposal, JAL would remain a key partner in oneworld, a collection of 11 of the most respected brands in the airline industry.

    The proposal also includes a pledge - if welcomed - to offer JAL guidance and expertise from partners that have successfully executed airline restructurings.

    "This proposal demonstrates oneworld's extraordinary commitment to JAL. It brings stability and certainty to Japan Airlines at a time when it is most needed, as it faces turbulent times over the coming weeks and months," said Tom Horton, American's Executive Vice President of Finance and Planning and CFO. "We believe our proposal is in the best interests of JAL and its employees and customers, and the government and taxpayers of Japan. It provides JAL the greatest long-term value at the lowest risk."

    PART 1: ENHANCED $2 BILLION COMMERCIAL BENEFITS FROM AMERICAN, BRITISH AIRWAYS AND QANTAS

    The first part of the broad-based offer would provide for vastly enhanced commercial relationships between JAL and American, British Airways and Qantas. The three airlines' approximately $2 billion in commitments and benefits would be realized by JAL over the three years and includes $1.5 billion of continuation of the ongoing revenue that JAL realizes from oneworld today, $300 million in incremental revenue guarantees from American Airlines, and approximately $200 million in enhancements from British Airways.

    "We are pleased that two other founding members of oneworld, British Airways and Qantas Airways, have joined us at American Airlines to offer support through their commercial relationships with JAL," Horton said.

    American already has proposed to JAL to apply for anti-trust immunity (ATI) between the United States and Japan on the basis that American - with its strong network and ability to quickly obtain ATI - is the best choice for JAL. With immunity and by participating in a joint venture with American, JAL can realize a revenue benefit that will bring it an estimated $100 million annually. As part of this enhanced offer, American is guaranteeing the $100 million in new annual revenue for the first three years of the proposed venture.

    British Airways, the United Kingdom's largest carrier, has proposed a series of enhancements to its business relationships with JAL that will result in an approximate $200 million in new revenue to JAL over three years. Among the most significant of the initiatives is British Airways' offer to create a joint business agreement with JAL so that, from April 2011 and subject to regulatory approval, the two carriers can enjoy greater revenue sharing opportunities that will offer real long-term value for Japan Airlines. As part of a joint business venture, British Airways will support and facilitate a new service between London Heathrow and Tokyo's Haneda International Airport.

    "We are committed to playing a full part in supporting the recovery of Japan Airlines within the oneworld alliance," said Roger Maynard, Director of Investments for British Airways. "London remains the premier destination in Europe and needs to be central to JAL's European plans."

    Beginning April of this year, British Airways will more than double the European points on which it code shares with JAL, which will provide greater opportunities for seamless passenger travel.

    "This change will provide more convenient connections and an improved customer experience for Japan Airlines passengers arriving at Heathrow and connecting to flights operated by British Airways," said Maynard.

    And, beginning in November 2010, British Airways will move its operations at Narita International Airport from Terminal 1 to Terminal 2, which will improve the passenger connections for flights beyond Narita.

    Qantas Airways today has also reinforced its support for Japan Airlines. Qantas Executive Commercial, Rob Gurney, said, "Qantas has offered to share expertise in relation to its two-brand and low-cost carrier business strategy. The Qantas Group's two flying brands strategy has provided Qantas with unique strength in terms of scale, network and customer reach and has enabled us to meet the challenges of the global economic downturn. This model has already proved successful for the Qantas Group on services between Australia and Japan.

    "Given our long-standing partnership with Japan Airlines and the oneworld alliance, Qantas is committed to working with Japan Airlines to ensure its long term viability and success," added Gurney.

    PART 2: INNOVATIVE EXPERTISE, GUIDANCE ON TURNING AROUND AN AIRLINE THROUGH RESTRUCTURING

    American - with its 83-year history of innovation in the commercial airline industry - is willing to provide JAL support and cooperation in areas such as fleet planning, network analysis, financial forecasting, revenue management, and maintenance operations.

    Since the 2003 launch of its own Turnaround Plan, American Airlines has implemented cost-saving programs and structural improvements in these areas that have saved the company approximately $6 billion, which allowed American to face the industry's many challenges, including many that JAL faces today. TPG also has a history of success in the airline and travel industries and is ready to offer its expertise to JAL if desired.

    "Our proposal also brings another crucial value to JAL. And that is the expertise of partners who can assist JAL, if invited, in a complicated restructuring," Horton said.

    The enhanced total value proposal is outlined in a letter from oneworld to Seiji Maehara, Japan's Minister of Land, Infrastructure, Transport and Tourism; Hiroshige Nishizawa, President and Representative Director, Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation (ETIC) of Japan; and Hideo Seto, ETIC Committee Chairman, Enterprise Turnaround Initiative Corporation of Japan.

    Additionally, if deemed appropriate and welcomed, American Airlines/oneworld and TPG, one of the world's leading private investment firms, are prepared to invest up to $1.4 billion as part of a comprehensive plan supported by the relevant participants to return JAL to financial vitality. This is a $300 million increase from their previous proposal, and it would be available if this was deemed an appropriate resource to aid in the restructuring of JAL.

    PART 3: CATHAY PACIFIC, QANTAS AIRWAYS AND JAL OFFER UNIQUE CORNERSTONE HUBS IN THE ASIAN MARKETPLACE

    Cathay Pacific Airways, with its Hong Kong hub, believes keeping JAL as a member of the oneworld alliance is a key to maintaining a strong presence in the strategically important and fast-growing Asian marketplace.

    "The corporate business traveler wants access to the world's most prestigious markets and JAL's Tokyo hub and Haneda facilities are vitally important to link flyers to the major business centers of Japan, Hong Kong and Australia," said Simon Large, President of Cathay Pacific-Japan.

    "We believe the oneworld proposal will minimize burdens on Japanese taxpayers, improve air travel services and competition, and will allow Japan Airlines to prosper as a world-class global airline for the long term," said American's Horton.

    Masimo Receives Payment Following Court of Appeals Affirmance of Antitrust Liability Verdict Against Tyco HealthCarePayment is on ruling finding that Tyco, now Covidien, unlawfully maintained monopoly power and utilized unlawful restraints of trade and exclusive dealing arrangements in the pulse oximetry market

    IRVINE, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Masimo , the inventor of Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM) and Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, announced today that it retained $30,064,684 from a payment from Covidien, following the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals' October 2009 affirmance of a Federal District Court decision that Tyco Healthcare, now Covidien, violated the antitrust laws through anticompetitive business practices related to the sale of its pulse oximetry products. The decision found that Covidien had unlawfully maintained monopoly power in violation of Section 2 of the Sherman Act, and that Covidien's sole-source agreements and market-share based compliance pricing contracts constituted unlawful restraints of trade in violation of Section 1 of the Sherman Act and unlawful exclusive dealing in violation of Section 3 of the Clayton Act. The Ninth Circuit also stated that above-cost bundling discounts when combined with sole-source or market-share-based compliance contracts can be anticompetitive when such practices involve a significant portion of the market. The suit was originally filed by Masimo in 2002. The judgment against Covidien for the antitrust violations was for $43.5 Million; however, the total payment, after reimbursement for legal fees, costs, and interest was $58,982,215. The portion of the total payment from Covidien that was not retained by Masimo was paid to the law firm that handled the trial for Masimo.

    Some confusion seems to have occurred in the last few days as a result of another ruling by the Ninth Circuit Court of Appeals in January 2010 in the Allied Orthopedic Appliances case against Covidien. The Allied Orthopedic case has no impact on the finding of antitrust liability in the Masimo case. As noted by the District Court Judge in the Allied Orthopedic decision when referencing the Masimo antitrust case against Covidien, "the instant case [referring to Allied Orthopedic] is 'entirely different' and focuses on overcharges paid by customers on pulse oximetry consumables as a result of Tyco's [now Covidien] foreclosure of generic sensor manufacturers."

    Joe E. Kiani, Founder and CEO of Masimo, stated: "We are happy to have received the payment, but we are hopeful that the results that we have fought will be served, which is to help improve patient care while also reducing cost by improving caregivers' access to cost-effective, innovative products. This ruling is the result of one of many efforts Masimo has pursued for many years to open markets so that medical products are judged on their merits rather than artificial restraints on hospital purchasing. Opening competition in the pulse oximetry market has caused pulse oximetry pricing to decrease by over 30%. But, also, many people's lives were either saved or improved as a direct result of their access to Masimo pulse oximeters. "

    About Masimo

    Masimo develops innovative monitoring technologies that significantly improve patient care--helping solve "unsolvable" problems. In 1995, the company debuted Measure-Through Motion and Low Perfusion pulse oximetry, known as Masimo SET®, which virtually eliminated false alarms and increased pulse oximetry's ability to detect life-threatening events. More than 100 independent and objective studies demonstrate Masimo SET provides the most reliable SpO2 and pulse rate measurements even under the most challenging clinical conditions, including patient motion and low peripheral perfusion. In 2005, Masimo introduced Masimo Rainbow SET® Pulse CO-Oximetry(TM), a breakthrough noninvasive blood constituent monitoring platform that can measure many blood constituents that previously required invasive procedures. Masimo Rainbow SET Pulse CO-Oximetry continuously and noninvasively measures total hemoglobin (SpHb(TM)), oxygen content (SpOC(TM)), carboxyhemoglobin (SpCO®), methemoglobin (SpMet®), PVI®, in addition to oxyhemoglobin (SpO2), pulse rate (PR), and perfusion index (PI), allowing early detection and treatment of potentially life-threatening conditions. In 2009, Masimo introduced Rainbow SET Acoustic Monitoring, offering continuous and noninvasive respiration rate (RRa(TM)) from an innovative acoustic sensor applied to the patient's neck. Rainbow Acoustic Monitoring is accurate, easy-to-use, and enhances patient compliance - which may help clinicians detect respiratory compromise and patient distress earlier and offer a breakthrough in patient safety. Founded in 1989, Masimo has the mission of "Improving Patient Outcomes and Reducing Cost of Care by Taking Noninvasive Monitoring to New Sites and Applications."

    Northrop Grumman Leads Middle Eastern ISR Conference; Joint Force Operations, Networked Assets and Data Fusion Drive Agenda

    ABU DHABI, United Arab Emirates, January 12 /PRNewswire/ --

    Tapping into leading intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) experts across the United Arab Emirates and its allied partners, senior military leaders and Northrop Grumman executives (NYSE: NOC) convened the first Middle Eastern ISR conference of its kind today to discuss the benefits and challenges of the growing need for more netted ISR assets to help manage today's threats, particularly in the Gulf region.

    A photo accompanying this release is available at: http://media.primezone.com/noc/

    "Northrop Grumman's participation in the Institute for Near East and Gulf Military Analysis (INEGMA) Middle East Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance conference is significant for several reasons. It is the signature ISR event supported by the UAE Armed Forces leadership, and when renowned, high-level international military and industry experts gather to discuss the challenges and technological solutions within this rapidly advancing field, it is very beneficial to all who attend," said John Brooks, president of Northrop Grumman International, Inc. and retired Major General, U.S. Air Force.

    Speakers included Major General Khamees Salem Mohammad Al Mazrahy, Director of Operations and Training, Office of the Minister of Defense for Military Affairs, UAE Ministry of Defense; Lieutenant General Michael Hostage, Commander, U.S. Air Force Central Command; General (Ret.) Khaled Abdullah Al Bu-Ainnain, Former Commander, UAE Air Force and Air Defense; Rear Admiral Jean Goursaud, Deputy Director of Military Intelligence, French Ministry of Defense; General (Ret.) Khaled Abdullah Al Bu-Ainnain, Former Commander, UAE Air Force and Air Defense; Dr. Mohammed Al Ahbabi, ICT Advisor, UAE Centre of Excellence; General (Ret.) John Jumper, Former Chief of Staff of the U.S. Air Force; Brigadier General Nicola Gelao, Head of Military Intelligence, Italian Ministry of Defense; and Major General (Ret.) Abdullah Al-Sayed Al-Hashemi, Former Deputy Commander, UAE Air Force and Air Defense.

    "The dialogue between panelists and the audience addressed a variety of challenges from conventional to irregular warfare, the technologies suited to meet those mission requirements, and the growing need for more interoperability and data analysis," Brooks said. "Northrop Grumman understands how to bring together a variety of technologies from manned and unmanned systems; communications and surveillance satellites; surveillance radars; as well as network-centric data processing and dissemination to make ISR all work seamlessly. That is a great benefit to the UAE and other Gulf States, and it is why we have a leadership role here today.

    "We all recognize how state and non-state actors, and hostile interest groups are transforming theaters of operation across the globe," Brooks said. "Northrop Grumman's leadership in developing and integrating advanced ISR capabilities for its customers can be of critical benefit to the UAE and members of the Gulf Cooperation Council (GCC) in helping them to network their assets to overcome the prevalent and emerging defense and security challenges in the region. National and regional security in an increasingly politically volatile region is necessitating more capable surveillance and reconnaissance capabilities, as well as integration within 'system of systems' architectures to enable enhanced intelligence-sharing."

    Brooks said the UAE derives many benefits from a close working relationship and partnership with Northrop Grumman. "Not only does the UAE derive the benefits of economies of scale in the purchase of technologies from our company that are also sold to U.S. military and other allied forces, but also the UAE Air Force gains the value of long-term technology road maps already in place for our U.S. and international military customers," he said. "As we upgrade technology found in aircraft weapon systems like the airborne early warning capability of the E-2D Advanced Hawkeye and ISR technologies of the vertical takeoff MQ-8B Fire Scout for the United States Navy, the UAE Air Force can also benefit from those investments. This is very important."

    The conference, according to INEGMA officials, is one more example that demonstrates Northrop Grumman's long term commitment to the region. A second conference is now being planned for 2011.

    "Sustained peace and prosperity for the UAE and their fellow GCC member countries -- Oman, Qatar, Bahrain, Kuwait and Saudi Arabia -- is a common goal for all," Brooks said. "Northrop Grumman's technology leadership in many areas, its diverse line of product offerings, and its continued investment in new technology growth like composites and alternative energy, enable the UAE and GCC leadership to selectively choose what capabilities they need for today and tomorrow with little constraint," he added. "It adds even further dimension to our more-than decade-long relationship with the UAE."

    Northrop Grumman Corporation is a leading global security company whose 120,000 employees provide innovative systems, products, and solutions in aerospace, electronics, information systems, shipbuilding and technical services to government and commercial customers worldwide.

    Solta Medical Donates Fraxel re:store(R) Laser System to Grossman Burn FoundationBreakthrough Skin Resurfacing Technology to Help Improve Skin Quality for Burn Victims

    NEWPORT COAST, Calif., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- Solta Medical, Inc. today announced the donation of a Fraxel re:store laser system to the Grossman Burn Foundation, the philanthropic arm of the Grossman Burn Center, a worldwide leader in innovative treatment and care for burn patients and their families. The Fraxel re:store system will be used to reduce the appearance of scarring caused by traumatic thermal damage.

    "Solta Medical is pleased to donate a Fraxel re:store system to the Grossman Burn Foundation to treat patients' scars and help in their recovery," said Stephen J. Fanning, Chairman of the Board, President and CEO of Solta Medical, Inc. "The Grossman Burn Foundation is well known for their humanitarian efforts to assist burn victims and their families throughout the world, and we applaud their efforts to provide highly-skilled non-profit reconstructive surgery."

    Fraxel re:store laser treatment resurfaces damaged skin to uncover the smoother, healthier skin underneath. For burn victims, Fraxel re:store treatment penetrates the outer layers of damaged skin (epidermis) and reaches deeper layers of skin (dermis) where collagen and elastin are located. The laser columns stimulate a natural healing process that produces new collagen to replace the damaged tissue with new, healthy skin cells, and improve the skin's overall tone and texture. As the original fractional laser technology, Fraxel re:store has been FDA-cleared to treat a number of skin conditions including: acne scars, surgical scars, actinic keratoses, age spots/sunspots, melasma and wrinkles around the eyes.

    "We are extremely grateful for this generous and important donation by Solta Medical," said Rebecca Grossman, Chair of the Grossman Burn Foundation. "The goal of restorative burn care is to return the patient to as close to pre-injury status as possible. Often that requires multiple surgeries combining both reconstructive and aesthetic work. We plan to use the cutting-edge Fraxel technology to restore our burn-injured patients and play a key role in providing better and faster patient outcomes."

    ABOUT THE GROSSMAN BURN FOUNDATION

    The Grossman Burn Foundation (GBF), the non-profit philanthropic arm of the Grossman Burn Center, provides burn care and medical resources in developing countries throughout the world. In addition to the ongoing surgical treatment of individual burn survivors, GBF projects include: the operation of a burn center in Kabul, Afghanistan; a global Humanitarian Assistance Manual for individuals in need of serious medical treatment; a physician triage training program for doctors in underdeveloped countries; and the development and distribution of satellite based telemedicine equipment to doctors and first responders in remote areas of the world. Additionally, the GBF is developing the "Stop Violence Against Women Globally" campaign. Founded in 1969, the Grossman Burn Center (GBC) is the largest plastic surgery-based burn practice in the western United States, providing acute and reconstructive burn care, rehabilitation, and post-treatment emotional and psychological support. Headquartered in Los Angeles, the GBC has three additional centers in California and Louisiana and is in the midst of a national expansion. In early 2010, the GBC is moving its headquarters to a new state-of-the-art surgical facility at West Hills Hospital and Medical Center in West Hills, Calif.

    The Hanover Insurance Group Launches New Ocean Cargo Product- Broader Coverage, Specialized Claims, Underwriting and Loss Control Services to Help Partner Agents Grow Their Businesses - - Company Continues to Build Ocean Marine Capabilities for Partner Agents -

    WORCESTER, Mass., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- The Hanover Insurance Group, Inc. , a leading provider of property and casualty insurance, today announced the availability of enhanced ocean cargo protection, backed by specialized underwriting, claims and loss control capabilities.

    (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20051031/NEM023LOGO )

    The launch of The Hanover's new ocean cargo product represents an important step as the company continues to build out its marine capabilities, providing even more tools to help its partner agents grow and win as the company delivers on its promise to be the best partner for winning independent agents.

    This new product provides worldwide coverage on goods in transit via vessel, air or land, including coast-wise and inter-coastal shipments. It can be customized to meet virtually any cargo insurance need, including inland transit, warehousing, processing, exhibitions, and sales samples.

    "Today we live in a truly global economy, where more and more U.S. businesses are seeking new customers and suppliers beyond our own shores," said Jane Sharfstein, vice president, ocean marine. "Whether these goods are being transported by vessel or air, they need coverage and that is where ocean cargo comes in."

    The new product was added to help the company's agent partners protect a growing number of clients with goods in transit that are not covered by standard insurance and can expose companies to major losses. There are millions in goods being shipped throughout the U.S. each year and over one million American businesses report being involved in importing and/or exporting.

    The Hanover's new ocean cargo product offers many distinctive coverages to help the company's agent partners provide even more value to their customers, including protection for:

    -- Concealed Damages--Covers goods after they have arrived, even if the packing shows no signs of damage and the shipments are not opened immediately. Unlike most companies, The Hanover's coverage is open to providing coverage beyond 90 days -- Worldwide Inland Transit-- Automatically included in the form, provides broad ocean cargo coverage for shipments via truck and train, while most ocean cargo products only offer such coverage via specific endorsement -- Goods Insured--Covers all lawful property shipped with the exception of some items, such as money, jewelry or live animals -- Non-Delivery--Pays claims for missing cargo if a shipment doesn't arrive within 30 days of the expected date -- Broken Lots and Size Ranges--Pays these unique claims, critical for garments and many other manufactured goods -- Control of Damaged Goods/Right of First Refusal--Treats damaged goods that are restricted from being salvaged as a total loss, allowing the insured to dispose of them as needed -- Storage Coverage--Provides coverage for items in storage before or after transit -- Mysterious Disappearance--Provides coverage at bailee locations when items go missing -- Duty Clause--Covers duty and taxes levied by countries in addition to the US and Canada -- Wind, flood and Earthquake--Offers coverage in the event of such natural disasters

    Because most ocean cargo losses can be minimized or prevented through greater vigilance in packaging, shipping and cargo-carrier selection, The Hanover also offers access to marine loss control specialists, who identify potential loss hazards and recommend tailored solutions to help mitigate losses. And, specialized claims experts ensure that -when there is a loss--customers receive prompt and fair service.

    Companies interested in this coverage should contact a Hanover agent, which can be found at http://www.hanover.com/ by clicking on "Find an Agent." Agents who want to know more should contact one of The Hanover's local branch offices or visit the Agent section of the company's web site at http://www.hanover.com/.

    Media Statement from Vincent Dolan, President and Chief Executive Officer of Progress Energy Florida in Response to Today's PSC Decision Regarding the Company's Base Rate Request

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., Jan. 11 /PRNewswire-FirstCall/ -- "We know that there is never a good time to raise rates, but the PSC decision is particularly harmful because it fails to recognize the true costs associated with providing a secure, reliable electricity system. The commission has decided to approve only a fraction of the cost of providing current and future service to customers at the level they expect and deserve. This will have a negative impact on our state's already aging energy infrastructure, and in the long run, the decision will mean a more expensive and less reliable system for Florida customers.

    (Logo: http://www.newscom.com/cgi-bin/prnh/20020923/CHM008LOGO-c)

    "Since the formation of Progress Energy Florida in 2000, the company has focused its efforts on improving customer reliability and service, reducing the environmental impacts of providing electricity and preparing for the energy future of Florida customers. These successful multi-billion-dollar efforts have been achieved with only a one percent change in base rates over the last 25 years.

    "The electric utility business is heavily dependent on the confidence of investors in the abilities of company management and fairness of regulators. Today's result will certainly affect the financial performance of the company, especially given the continued economic decline and associated impact on energy usage. Depending on the market view of this decision and the changing Florida regulatory environment, we may see an increased cost of capital and a reluctance of investors to put capital at risk in the Florida market. Ultimately, projects from storm hardening to clean-air improvements to carbon-free nuclear might be in jeopardy."

    Progress Energy Florida, a subsidiary of Progress Energy , provides electricity and related services to more than 1.6 million customers in Florida. The company is headquartered in St. Petersburg, Fla., and serves a territory encompassing more than 20,000 square miles, including the cities of St. Petersburg and Clearwater, as well as the Central Florida area surrounding Orlando. Progress Energy Florida is pursuing a balanced approach to meeting the future energy needs of the region. That balance includes increased energy-efficiency programs, investments in renewable energy technologies and a state-of-the-art electricity system.
