Jongla Social Messenger bridges the gap between instant messaging and social networks

Name: Jongla ( for  ( (,  ( (,  ( Phone ( and  ( OS ( Quick pitch: Jongla today announced the release of Social Messenger – its most significant feature upgrade yet. With new social discovery tools, a redesigned UI and brand upgrade, Jongla aims to make instant messaging more social and more fun for people around the world. Key points: · ●     People – built-in community helps users to discover interesting new people nearby · ●     Reactions – a new way to express friendship and an interest in meeting new people · ●     Rebranding – new app icon, themes, redesigned UI and user profiles · ●     Lite – world’s lightest messenger helps people to save money and data London, UK, June 22nd, 2016 –  ( (, the Finnish instant messaging pioneer, has today announced the release of Jongla Social Messenger, a new iteration of its popular cross-platform messaging app. With new built-in social integration that includes reactions, the 3rd generation Jongla aims to bridge the gap between social networks and instant messaging. Messaging apps have become the dominant platform on smartphones, surpassing social networks in  ( of user numbers worldwide. The new direction Jongla is taking is down to how the team has seen the messaging industry shift since launching in 2012. The trend of today shows that people, especially in emerging markets, are replacing their social networking apps usage with instant messengers. “The lines between social networking and messaging apps usage are blurring and we firmly believe that soon the two will meet. We’re seeing this already with chatbots. Jongla is ahead of this curve, offering new meaningful social layers to our instant messaging service and enabling our users to enjoy the best of them both,” explains Riku Salminen, CEO, Jongla. In addition to chatting, Jongla users can now discover and interact with new friends based on their location with a built-in community feature called ‘People’. The feature was designed to enable users to be able to discover interesting new people around them. To protect user privacy, only an approximate location is given and the feature is optional. “We are continuing to make Jongla more social without sacrificing the essence of it all - private messaging”, added Salminen. “For those who want to broaden their horizons to discover and interact with new friends, the community of nearby people is only one tap away.” Also added to Jongla’s Social Messenger is the ability to engage with user profiles with a choice of reaction. Reactions can be exchanged between people in Jongla’s community to express emotions from a simple thumbs-up, smile or even a virtual flirtation with a heart. “Our emotions towards other people might sometimes be hard to put into words. We wanted to give our users a way to express their friendship or interest towards new people in a meaningful and fun way,” describes Salminen. Within the next two years, a whole new generation of mobile natives - roughly a billion people - will access the mobile Internet, mostly via low-end smartphones with prepaid plans. Emerging markets, the driver of this growth, still suffer from low connectivity and the high cost of data. Jongla is growing fast in these areas with their optimised messaging solution. In 2015, Jongla become the world’s lightest messaging app in an effort to help people save money and data. According to their studies, Jongla uses 80% less data compared to Viber and 25% less data compared to Facebook Messenger*. Jongla also takes a fraction of data to download compared to all major competitors**. “Jongla remains very economical in terms of data usage and the cost related to this. From download to daily use, Jongla saves people money. It makes all the difference for the people with limited and costly prepaid data plans,” finished Salminen.

This month, one of the UK’s best loved dating sites celebrates its third anniversary, delivering a welcome message that it’s never too late to find true love. The over 60 dating ( site was launched in Summer 2013 to help over 60’s find that special someone. The site offers a safe, easy way to meet new people and is the perfect place to start dating again after a break. With over 990,000 members over the age of fifty in the network, the site has gone from strength to strength and matches couples based on a range of criteria from interests and hobbies to personality, religion, values and star signs- and much more. Because it has considerably more singles than other comparable sites, there’s a greater chance of finding your soulmate and beginning a lasting, happy relationship. Owner Lyndon Ogden said “I set the site up when I was approaching 60 and identified a need in the market. Most other sites have pictures of 20-somethings smiling out at you, whereas our site doesn’t feature anyone under 60.” Mr Ogden also commented “I met my own wife on a dating website that was OK but not great. That is why I decided to do better and build my own” Specially created to fit in with the busy lives of over 60’s, the site is perfect for those who want to meet new people but don’t have a lot of spare time. Members can chat with each other about anything that matters to them- family, hobbies, pets, books and music- before arranging to meet in person, meaning when they do meet, they’re immediately comfortable in each other’s company. The site is free to join and search, but there is a small subscription fee required in order to make connections. For more information about Over 60’s dating, or to join up, go to <<ENDS>>

These findings demonstrate FluMist Quadrivalent was 46-58% effective overall against the circulating influenza strains during the 2015-2016 season. As influenza vaccine effectiveness varies from season to season, it is evaluated in annual observational studies. The CDC states that when there is a good match between the strains in the vaccine and those that circulate during the influenza season, vaccines are typically 50-60% effective. AstraZeneca is working with the CDC to better understand its data to help ensure eligible patients continue to receive the vaccine in future seasons in the US. The distribution and use of the vaccine in other countries are progressing as planned for the forthcoming influenza season, pending the annual release process from relevant regulatory authorities. Financial considerations The US Product Sales of FluMist Quadrivalent in FY 2015 amounted to $206 million. The ACIP's updated recommendation is expected to result in very limited US demand in the second half of 2016 and consequently the Company will take an inventory write-down of approximately $80 million in the second quarter of 2016. The Company maintains its financial guidance for 2016. About AstraZeneca AstraZeneca is a global, science-led biopharmaceutical company that focuses on the discovery, development and commercialisation of prescription medicines, primarily for the treatment of diseases in three main therapy areas - oncology; respiratory and autoimmunity; and cardiovascular and metabolic disease.

Proact awarded by NetApp for Data Fabric excellence

Proact, the leading data centre integrator and private cloud services provider, has once again been recognised for its excellence in building hybrid clouds for its customers across Europe. At the NetApp EMEA Partners Awards 2016, Proact was named the winner in the Data Fabric category. Proact CEO Jason Clark accepted the award at the NetApp EMEA Partner Executive Forum in Lisbon. Proact was mentioned for proactively promoting the Data Fabric vision and for its business success with NetApp in several countries. In every part of the fabric, Proact offers services and solutions, and continues to build, based on NetApp technology, to fully realize the potential of hybrid clouds. “The awareness that the Proact Hybrid Cloud and NetApp Data Fabric are a perfect match has in many ways defined our work and offering, and we are proud to be recognised by NetApp for our commitment to delivering on our common vision for hybrid cloud environments,” says Jason Clark, CEO, Proact IT Group AB. “Looking forward, we are confident that Data Fabric will continue to evolve to meet future challenges and, just as Proact is certainly very well prepared to serve any upcoming customer needs.” “The Data Fabric is at the heart of our corporate strategy. It is the proverbial fabric stretching across and connecting private, service provider, and hyperscale clouds,” says Alfred Manhart, Senior Director Channel & System Integrators EMEA. “To move from strategy to tangible results however requires more. We need trusted partners like Proact to promote the Data Fabric and its full solution portfolio, including technologies like FlexPod and NetApp Private Storage. In several countries across Europe, we rely on Proact to offer services and solutions for the hybrid cloud built on NetApp. They have done a fantastic job in FY16 and have rightfully won our EMEA Partner Award in the ‘Data Fabric’ category.” NetApp’s Partner Excellence awards program recognises those partners who go beyond the call of duty for their customers and demonstrate success at the highest level. For the awards, partners are evaluated on revenue attainment, growth and investment in NetApp training.

SciBase insources the production of electrodes from Ginolis

- The production of the electrodes is our most strategic and important process, which is why we want to handle it internally. We believe that by fully controlling the production process it is easier for us to drive the development of a more cost effective production forward. We would like to take the opportunity to thank Ginolis for their professional services and the high quality of the electrodes produced, says Simon Grant, CEO at SciBase. As a preparatory step two former Ginolis employees, who have been involved in the production of the electrodes, are now employed by SciBase. The production itself will continue from Ginolis’ current premises in Uppsala. By integrating the manufacturing of the electrodes into SciBase’s operations, product development including improvements of the design and the technology itself of the electrodes is facilitated. - In addition to a more efficient R&D process, we also get a deeper understanding of the production process, which enables SciBase to better evaluate the production from a strategic perspective in the future, says Anna Danström, Manager Electrode Development at SciBase. When using Nevisense, a new electrode is required for every patient examined. SciBase’s business model is based on selling instruments, but the major potential lies in the continuous use as it generates revenues from the sale of the single-use electrodes. During the first quarter of 2016 SciBase increased sales of the electrodes with 34 percent. The company does not expect the margin, which improved strongly in 2016, to be affected notably short-term.

Wilson Therapeutics presents preliminary clinical data on Decuprate® at the 20th International Congress of Parkinson´s Disease and Movement Disorders

Wilson Therapeutics AB (publ), announces that preliminary data from the company’s ongoing Phase II clinical trial for Decuprate® (bis-choline tetrathiomolybdate; WTX101) in Wilson Disease will be presented today at the 20th International Congress of Parkinson´s Disease and Movement Disorders, taking place in Berlin, Germany, June 19-23. The poster presentation of the data will be provided by Prof. Anna Czlonkowska. The underlying data have previously been presented at the Congress of the European Academy of Neurology on May 30. WTX101-201 is a Phase II clinical trial evaluating the efficacy and safety of Decuprate® monotherapy dosed once daily in 28 newly-diagnosed patients with Wilson Disease, aged 18 years and older, who are previously untreated or have received a standard of care agent for up to two years. The study is being conducted at 11 sites in the U.S. and Europe, and will follow patients on Decuprate® for 24 weeks. Patients completing the 24 weeks can elect to stay on Decuprate® in an extension phase of the study. The last patient was enrolled in the trial on May 18 and as of June 23, ten patients have reached the end of the 24-week treatment period. All ten patients have elected to continue Decuprate® treatment in the extension phase. The patients recruited had various degrees of hepatic impairment at the time of enrollment and the majority of enrolled patients also had neurological symptoms at study start. About Decuprate® (bis-choline tetrathiomolybdate; WTX101)Decuprate® is a first in class, specific Copper-Protein Trap under investigation as a novel therapy in Wilson Disease. Decuprate®, unlike current treatments for Wilson Disease, appears to have direct activity in the liver where it specifically targets and reduces toxic free copper. Decuprate® also reduces toxic free copper in the blood, and then excretes it via the bile, the body’s natural route for excess copper elimination. The active ingredient of Decuprate®, tetrathiomolybdate, has been tested in several clinical studies in Wilson Disease patients and the data from these studies, as well as preliminary data from the Company’s ongoing Phase II study, suggest that Decuprate® can rapidly lower and control toxic free copper levels and improve clinical symptoms in these patients. The data also suggest that Decuprate® is well-tolerated with the potential for a reduced risk of neurological worsening after initiation of therapy compared to existing therapies. Decuprate® is expected to have a once-daily dosing regimen which may potentially translate into improved compliance in Wilson Disease patients, leading to fewer treatment failures and ultimately improved outcomes as a result. Decuprate® has received orphan drug designation for the treatment of Wilson disease in the US and EU. About Wilson DiseaseWilson Disease is a rare genetic disease that causes serious copper poisoning. The genetic defect causes excessive copper accumulation, primarily in the liver and/or the central nervous system and the disease results in life-threatening damage to the liver and brain if left untreated. Wilson Disease affects approximately one in every 30,000 people worldwide, corresponding to a prevalence of approximately 10,000 patients in the US and 15,000 patients in the EU. The therapies currently being used in Wilson Disease were introduced in the 1950’s and 60’s and since then there have been no new treatment options developed for patients with this disease. About Wilson TherapeuticsWilson Therapeutics is a biopharmaceutical company, based in Stockholm, Sweden, that develops novel therapies for patients with rare diseases. Wilson Therapeutics’ lead product, Decuprate®, is initially being developed as a novel treatment for Wilson Disease and is currently being evaluated in a Phase II clinical study. Wilson Therapeutics is listed in the Mid Cap segment on Nasdaq Stockholm with the stock ticker WTX. Visit for more information.

BillerudKorsnäs reports serious fraud to Swedish police

BillerudKorsnäs has during June 2016 been exposed to serious external fraud of an advanced nature. The company has, despite rigorous control mechanisms, been deceived to make payments on the basis of false invoices. The situation was quickly identified by the BillerudKorsnäs finance function and the extent of the fraud could therefore be limited through recovery of major parts of the payments. After these measures, the maximal damage is about SEK 25 million. The fraud has been reported to the Swedish police who is currently investigating the case. BillerudKorsnäs has initiated an internal investigation to assess if, and if so where, there has been lack of compliance with internal routines. Until the internal investigation is finalized, BillerudKorsnäs has taken measures to prevent similar situations to occur. “We treat this situation seriously. This type of fraud becomes more and more advanced and difficult to detect. This is a signal to us and to the rest of the business community about the importance of increased alertness”, comments Per Lindberg, President and CEO, BillerudKorsnäs AB. BillerudKorsnäs has reported the claim to the insurance company and an insurance case has been initiated.

‘Class of 2016’ assemble at Michelin’s UK headquarters for Tyre Academy launch

Promising tyre fitters from around the UK and Ireland have assembled in Stoke-on-Trent for the launch of Michelin’s 2016 Tyre Academy course, which will transform their raw talent into the skills of an expert technician. A group of 10 fitters selected from dealerships of the Michelin Certified Centre (MCC) network were invited to the manufacturer’s UK headquarters for the first Tyre Academy module, which combined classroom and workshop-based education at Michelin’s dedicated training centre. The module covered key technical knowledge of tyre sidewall markings and construction, the legal issues surrounding tyres, and how to provide excellent customer service – enabling the aspiring experts to expand their knowledge of all-things-Michelin. Mark Meagher, Retail Programme Development Manager at Michelin, says: “The Michelin Auto Professional dealerships forming our MCC network are all staffed by consummate professionals, and being able to reward that dedication to top-notch service with additional training is a key pillar of the programme. “The stringent audit each dealership must pass to become an MCC ensures that only the best tyre dealerships can display our coveted Michelin Man signage, and with the Tyre Academy course, we can help our dealerships improve their customer service skills even further.” The Tyre Academy course continues later in 2016 with a second module, as tyre fitters drawn from the initial ‘class of 2016’ are invited to Michelin’s Dundee factory, with the chance to see how the company’s premium tyres roll off the production line. The second module dives deeper into the technology that goes into Michelin’s safe, durable and high-performing tyres, and lets trainees further explore the logistics of the company’s production processes. For further information on Michelin Certified Centres and the Michelin Auto Professional programme visit Ends Michelin, the leading tyre company, is dedicated to sustainably improving the mobility of goods and people by manufacturing, distributing and marketing tyres for every type of vehicle.

LGBT+ online gamers to get physical at this year’s Pride in London

TOM’s Casino, the world’s only online LGBT+ gaming community, is honored to announce that it will be joining this month’s Pride festival in London as an official sponsor. The gaming site, which launched earlier this year as the first of its kind, and designed with the LGBT+ community in mind, will be hitting the streets of London for the first time ever at this year’s Pride celebrations in Trafalgar Square on June 25th and the Picnic in the Park music festival on June 26th. “We are extremely proud to be part of Pride in London 2016,” says Tom Kåhre, CEO of Lunas Entertaiment, the company behind the creation of TOM’s Casino. “At Lunas, we are deeply committed to do our part in supporting humanity, LGBT equality, and related communities and projects all over the world.”  Kåhre and TOM’s Casino are continuously looking to connect with UK-based LGBT non-profits to cooperate on common charitable goals.  “We invite humanitarian and LGBT+ associations and organizations in all of our 11 active countries to send suggestions and proposals to for consideration“, Kåhre says. This year, Pride in London invites London’s LGBT+ community and its fellow allies to stand together to celebrate and work for the extension of the freedom for people everywhere with #nofilter – the theme of its 2016 campaign. The extended Pride Festival in London will take place between 10 and 26 June. After London, TOM’s Casino’s involvement with this year’s event follows its sponsorship of Capital Pride festival in Ottawa, Canada, which takes place in August and will see the Canadian LGBT+ community celebrate the 31st anniversary of the event. About Tom’s Casino  TOM’s Casino is an homage to Touko Laaksonen (Finnish, 1920–1991), a.k.a. Tom of Finland. Tom of Finland is widely regarded as the foremost gay male erotic artist of our time. A product of Lunas Entertainment Ltd, TOM’s Casino helps support the non-profit activities of Tom of Finland Foundation, and a portion of the casino’s proceeds goes to assist in furthering its goals.

Tom of Finland in 1984. As Tom had established worldwide recognition as the master of homoerotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose was to preserve his vast catalogue of work. Years later the scope was widened to offer a safe haven for all erotic art in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or generated a sexual response. Today, the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public  to the cultural merits of erotic art in promoting healthier and more tolerant attitudes about sexuality. / Media / Charitable / CEO Tom Kåhre Find out more about Pride in London: about Ottawa Capital Pride:


SAN FRANCISCO (June 23, 2016) –Today Hipmunk leapt ahead in the race to use artificial intelligence to make travel planning as simple as possible. It announced that Hello Hipmunk™, the company’s free personalized travel planning virtual assistant, is now out of beta testing and can answer more kinds of travel questions than any other travel AI.  To make Hello Hipmunk even easier to use, the feature is now integrated into Facebook Messenger and Slack. Hello Hipmunk launched in November of last year for use on email and calendars. The newest iteration of the virtual travel assistant is able to parse more complex questions posed in plain English and deliver more far-reaching results. Using Hello Hipmunk simplifies the travel planning process, taking out the agony. Now that the feature is also on Messenger and Slack, it lets users make travel plans from where they already are. “The average traveler runs 20 searches when planning a trip. Hello Hipmunk shrinks that process to one simple conversation. It can process tons of information from flight pricing to room availability and synthesize it instantly,” said Adam Goldstein, CEO and co-founder of Hipmunk. With its expanded functionality, Hello Hipmunk now answers questions from travelers earlier in the planning process, ultimately speeding along travel planning. Rather than just providing flight and accommodation options when asked about specific dates and destinations, Hello Hipmunk can give advice and recommendations to undecided travelers by responding to questions like “What’s the best time to go to Cancun from Chicago?” “Running multiple searches to get advice and research options is inefficient and, eventually, will be a thing of the past.  Now Hello Hipmunk lets travelers ask questions from where they’re already talking, and deliver the answers there, too,” said Nancy Hang Vice President of Product at Hipmunk. “We want to make it easy for people to type something like ‘I’d like to take a beach vacation from Minneapolis in March’ and see options instantly.” Here is how Hello Hipmunk is simplifying travel planning: Advice and Research ●      Travelers can ask things like “Show me the best flights from JFK to San Diego” or “I’d like to take a romantic vacation from Seattle in September.” Then, Hello Hipmunk taps into its large dataset of itineraries, room inventory, and pricing to provide contextually relevant advice instantly. Preferences and Alerts ●      Travelers can tell Hello how they like to travel by using phrases such as “show me non-stops only” or “I prefer United Airlines” or “I’d like the cheapest flight”.  Travelers can also request to receive price alerts based on their inquiries. Personalization and Context ●      Hello Hipmunk understands the context of the conversation, just like a real life personal assistant. For example, if a traveler types “I’d like to fly to Portland from Chicago next weekend,” Hello Hipmunk knows the dates for next weekend, remembers that the traveler is flying to Portland, and can show hotels for those same dates, too. "The proliferation of travel sites has made it harder, not easier, for customers to have confidence when booking. That's why AI is so powerful in travel. We're taking the nuances of customers' needs—in their own words—and doing all the hard work in the background, searching across all those sites instantly. And as with other innovations, the pioneers in travel are going to set the template for how to do it right in other categories," said Adam Goldstein.

Jo Thornton Announce Restock of Coveted ‘Style 7B’ Breast Enhancers, Just in Time for Summer

Confidence boosting specialist, Jo Thornton has relaunched one of her beloved breast-enhancing favourites, just in time for summer. After teaming up with a fantastic new supplier, Jo Thornton has reintroduced the much-loved Style 7B breast enhancer, offering an increase of up to two full cup sizes, with a totally natural look. The Style 7B has been out of stock for around a year, but now she’s back and ready to make her presence known! Not only is the cleavage-boosting miracle-worker back in stock, she’s back in stock at a reduced price of £15.40, for a limited time only. The pair of breast enhancers help ladies to enhance their best assets, pushing them up or filling them out without appearing fake. The ridged curve of these breast enhancers helps keep their shape perfectly, and blend with the breasts for an authentic look, whether you’re going for a deep, plunging swimsuit or a daring bandeau dress. Jo Lucas, Founder and Director, says, “I’m thrilled to have the Style 7B breast enhancers back in stock. This style was very popular the first time around, and now with a wonderful new supplier, she’s ready to offer a real boost on those occasions when you really need to impress.” Jo adds, “Summer is just around the corner, and many women are feeling self-conscious about flashing the flesh – but with the Style 7B enhancers back in stock, ladies can achieve a fuller, more shapely look, giving them confidence in their body and allowing them to relax and enjoy the summer without feeling insecure.” Style 7B is suitable for ladies with B, C, D and E cups – the most pronounced increase in size will obviously be experienced by those with a smaller bust to begin with, but the enhancers are expected to add one or two cup sizes at the least. The total weight is 330g, and the cleavage-creators have a medium texture, allowing them to blend with the bra while still giving a firm, comfortable push. Jo Thornton started as an online shop selling breast enhancers, and has since grown into a one-stop-shop for ladies feeling self-conscious about their bust size or shape. Ladies who need help after surgery, or those who simply want to achieve a fuller shape, have flocked to the online store – and as the store has grown, so has the product range. What started out as ‘Silicone-Sally’ blossomed into a successful business selling breast forms and prosthetic breasts, as well as tit tape, nipple covers and the popular breast enhancers that helped make the venture so successful. Jo continues, “Every woman is blessed with a different shape, and we all want different things from our bras, depending on our outfit and how confident we’re feeling. We deserve to have those needs catered for. My store now offers the largest range of breast enhancers in the UK, as well as a multitude of complementary products designed to help women look and feel great, whatever they’re wearing.” For more information about Jo Thornton, visit the website:

GOODWOOD, UK (23 June, 2016) – Cummins display at the Goodwood Festival of Speed (June 23-26) will once again draw the crowds with a unique engineering project on show.  An iconic London Routemaster red bus is going ‘green’ with a Cummins ISB4.5 clean diesel engine, ensuring it is ready to meet the Ultra-Low Emission Zone (ULEZ) standards planned to take effect in congested areas of the capital from 2018 to 2020. The AEC Routemaster RM1005 double-deck bus which first entered service in 1962, now has the distinction of being the oldest ever bus to meet the latest Euro VI emissions standards. This follows a repower project undertaken by the application engineering team at the Cummins Darlington Engine Plant. The project offers the opportunity to preserve historic Routemasters for many years ahead. The bus owner, Sir Peter Hendy CBE, former Commissioner of Transport for London, challenged the Cummins engineers to extend the operating life of RM1005 with a cost efficient repower package, thereby creating an ultra-low emissions option to enable other Routemasters to continue operating in London. Initial road testing reveals the bus to be easy to drive, with smooth acceleration and quiet operation. The driver cab dash panel and pedal controls have been upgraded to align with the new engine technology. The highly compact envelope of the 4.5-litre ISB clean diesel engine and integrated exhaust aftertreatment is an ideal fit in the small engine compartment, ensuring that the characteristic external appearance of the bus remains unchanged. “This is the first public display of the Cummins repowered Routemaster and we’re sure its iconic design coupled with its ultra-clean environmental credentials will prove of great interest to visitors to Goodwood, commented Ashley Watton, Cummins Director On-Highway Europe. “This year’s diesel star of the Goodwood event is one of the most interesting engineering projects the Cummins team has ever embarked upon. While there is further road testing to be completed, the repowered Routemaster offers the potential to achieve an extremely low carbon footprint per passenger. This means that RM1005 could return to the streets of London with an equal environmental standing as the latest generation of diesel hybrid and alternative fuel buses currently running in the capital. It seems fitting that the leading independent engine supplier into the European bus market be first to bring Euro VI low emissions technology to this historic vehicle, building on Cummins success in the bus market and the recent launch of stop-start technology,” concluded Watton. Also available to view on the Cummins stand this year will be a working ‘Engineers On Duty’ display, with Cummins service technician and apprentice demonstrating how an ISB engine can be fully dismantled and then rebuilt during the course of the day. Note to editors: RM1005 – An Illustrious Career Continues RM1005 first entered service in Holloway, London in March 1962 and began earningits status as one of the most famous of the remaining Routemaster buses. After a major refurbishment, a new Cummins engine was installed in 2000. The bus re-entered scheduled service with London Sovereign when Route 13 was converted back to Routemaster operation up until 2005. The bus was bought by Sir Peter Hendy in 2007 for private use, when it was reunited with its original registration number 5CLT and later ran on heritage Route 9 connecting London tourist attractions. RM1005 received high profile attention in 2012 as one of the London heritage buses supporting the Olympic Games, taking part in celebration events and carrying visitors to the Olympic Park. Now repowered with Cummins clean diesel power, the illustrious career of RM1005 is set to continue. – more ­­– About Cummins Inc.

AMA: California Insurance Commissioner Takes Right Approach to Protect State from Anthem-Cigna and Aetna-Humana Mergers

“The American Medical Association applauds California Insurance Commissioner Dave Jones for taking a strong stand to prevent a near total collapse of competition in the state’s health insurance market. He has taken the right approach to protect California by opposing the Anthem-Cigna and Aetna-Humana mergers. “The AMA agrees with Commissioner Jones that the mergers would very likely raise premiums above competitive levels and reduce the quality of health care. He was also right in finding that any efficiency savings achieved in the mergers would not likely be passed along to patients. His finding is supported by economic studies suggesting that health insurance companies use monopoly power gained from mergers to charge higher prices for health insurance. "The AMA commends the Commissioner for acknowledging the evidence ( physicians and others presented demonstrating that the proposed mergers would likely enhance market power or raise significant competitive concerns in most of California metropolitan areas. Last March, the AMA testified ( before the Commissioner and warned that granting anticompetitive market power to any health insurance company would have long-term consequences for California's health care delivery system that would threaten health care access, quality and affordability.” # # #

The Vikings invade... next door!  New Jorvik exhibition opens in York St Mary's

York’s Vikings will have a new temporary home from this Saturday (25 June 2016) when many of the costumed hosts normally based at the JORVIK Viking Centre in Coppergate move next door into York St Mary’s for a new exhibition focusing on domestic life and trade in the Viking period.  The new exhibition will feature many of the world-class artefacts that were rescued from JORVIK Viking Centre when flood waters started to infiltrate the basement last December, from some of the best preserved Viking leather shoes to horn combs and jewellery which were all discovered during the Coppergate Dig of the late 1970s.  The exhibition will all be set around a replica Viking boat centrepiece, loaded with the kinds of goods that would have been traded in and from the city during the 200-year period of Norse settlement in the city.  “It was always crucial to us to keep the Viking story alive in York whilst the redevelopment and re-imaging of JORVIK Viking Centre takes place behind the scenes, and we’re grateful to York Museums Trust for offering York St Mary’s to us,” comments director of attractions, Sarah Maltby.  “This is the largest of the three exhibitions we’ll be staging in York between now and next year, and gives us a great opportunity to talk about the crucial role that the city played as a centre of commerce during the Viking age, attracting traders from around the world.”  Jorvik: Home and Abroad features a number of the Viking models that featured in the underground recreation of Viking-age Coppergate that were fortunately above water level – a wonderful opportunity for visitors to see these characters up close and in natural light – with newly-built sets to recreate Viking trading stalls and crafts, including a traditional Viking loom which will be demonstrated by historic interpreters.  “This exhibition gives our team of costumed interpreters a superb opportunity to interact with the public, sharing stories and answering questions about life in Viking times, so we are expecting this to be a superbly engaging and entertaining experience that will quench the thirst for Viking knowledge of the thousands of visitors who come to York over the next few months,” adds Sarah.  Other parts of the exhibition include a display of two skeletons found in the city – a woman found in Swinegate, and the skeleton of a man thought to be of African descent – and a crafting area for children, where they can try their hand at ring making or beading under the watchful eye of one of JORVIK’s resident Vikings.  The exhibition is set to run until February 2017, when the artefacts will be returned to JORVIK Viking Centre itself ahead of its spring relaunch.  Jorvik: Home and Abroad will be open daily from 10.00am to 5.00pm, with admission prices of £5.00 for adults, £3.00 for concessions and free for children 16 and under.  For further information, please visit   ENDS  Notes to editors:  This is the second time that JORVIK has decamped into York St Mary’s, the last time was in October 2000 whilst a new ride was being built in the basement.  The Jorvik: Home and Abroad exhibition is being created in partnership with York Museums Trust.  Amongst the models on display as part of the exhibition will be the model made of BBC The One Show’s Matt Baker, which was made from a cast of his face during his time on Blue Peter.    Jorvik On Tour features three exhibitions organised in partnership with other key tourism organisations in the city.  The first, Jorvik: Life & Death, is already open at York Theatre Royal in the Keregan Room, and the third exhibition, Jorvik: Treasures & Belief, will open in the Undercroft of York Minster on Monday 1 August.  Fundraising continues to help support the re-imagining of JORVIK Viking Centre as part of the Your Jorvik campaign, which offers those wanting to make donations the opportunity to sponsor anything from a piece of straw to having their Viking-self created as an animatronic in the new displays.  For further media information or photographs, please contact:  Jay Commins  Pyper York Limited  Tel: 01904 500698  Email:

TOM’s Casino, the world’s only online LGBTQ gaming community, is honored to announce that it will be joining this year’s Ottawa Capital Pride festival as an official sponsor. The gaming site, which launched earlier this year as the only of its kind, will be present for the first time ever at this year’s Pride celebrations in Ottawa.  “We are extremely proud to be part of Ottawa Capital Pride 2016,” says Tom Kåhre, CEO of Lunas Entertainment, the company behind the creation of TOM’s Casino. “At Lunas, we are deeply committed to do our part in supporting humanity, LGBTQ equality, and their supporters all over the world.”  Kåhre and TOM’s Casino are continuously looking to connect with local LGBTQ  non-profits to cooperate on common charitable goals. “We invite humanitarian and LGBTQ associations and organizations to send proposals to for consideration”, Kåhre says. Now in its 31st year, Ottawa Capital Pride calls for Canada’s Rainbow Community and its allies to stand together to celebrate and work for the freedoms for people everywhere. The festival will take place from the 15th to the 21st of August. TOM’s Casino’s involvement with this year’s programming follows its sponsorship of Pride in London, which will take place from June 25th to June 26 th.  About Tom’s Casino TOM’s Casino is a homage to Touko Laaksonen (Finnish, 1920–1991), a.k.a. Tom of Finland. Tom of Finland is widely regarded as the foremost gay male erotic artist of our time. A product of Lunas Entertainment Ltd, TOM’s Casino helps support the non-profit activities of Tom of Finland Foundation, and a portion of the casino’s proceeds will go to assist in furthering its goals. TOM’s Casino is active and available in eleven countries all over the world including: Australia, Austria, Canada, Czech Republic, Finland, Germany, Greece, New Zealand, Norway, Sweden and United Kingdom. Tom of Finland Foundation  Tom of Finland Foundation is a non-profit organization which was established by Durk Dehner and his friend Touko Laaksonen a.k.a. Tom of Finland in 1984. As Tom had established worldwide recognition as the master of homoerotic art, the Foundation’s original purpose was to preserve his vast catalogue of work. Years later the scope was widened to offer a safe haven for all erotic art in response to rampant discrimination against art that portrayed sexual behavior or generated a sexual response. Today, the Foundation continues in its efforts of educating the public to the cultural merits of erotic art in promoting healthier and more tolerant attitudes about sexuality. / Media / Charitable / CEO Tom Kåhre More aboutOttawa Capital Pride: in London:

Football fans drive home support for Wales thanks to travel experts

Wales’ success in the European Championships has captured both the hearts and support of the whole of the country. And in order to show their support to the stellar team, a group of Welsh football fans have decorated one of Britain’s most iconic vehicles. Complete with the roaring Welsh dragon, they took patriotism to the next level by decorating a Bentley Arnage with the country’s flag to show just how behind their team they are. Sponsored by Leisuretime, Wales’ leading provider of UK and European coach trips, the car has been on a tour of Cardiff and the surrounding area for the past week, capturing the imagination of the population. Now, the car is set to drive down to France in order to support the team when they face rivals Northern Ireland in the last 16 on Saturday. Ceri Johnson, Director of Leisuretime said, “We’re very proud of our national team and their achievements, so felt we needed to do something a little bit different to show our support. Decorating the car was a way to inject a bit of fun into the campaign and get people talking about Wales’ successes on the world stage.” The whole of Wales has caught the football bug, thanks to their team’s impressive performances in the group stages. Qualifying top of their group ahead of neighbours, England, they have achieved more than many thought possible. Ceri added, “The whole of Wales is behind the team, and we’re all extremely excited about the next stage. Seen by many as underdogs, we always knew that the team were going to do well. This idea, dreamt up by a group of loyal Welsh supporters, is an entertaining way of showing our support and raising the profile of the team, and we are honoured to have been a part of it.” Earlier this year, Wales qualified for the Tournament, and as a consequence, reached their first major finals since 1958. This year marks their first ever European appearance, and has propelled Wales to stratospheric heights.

Latest Toroidal Transmission Technologies Offer Seamless Power Delivery and Improved Fuel Efficiency in CVT Applications

24 June, 2016... Torotrak Group, a leading developer and supplier of vehicle emissions reduction and fuel efficiency technologies, recently presented new advances in CVT (Continuously Variable Transmission) technology that promise increased energy efficiency and performance in light automotive applications, including electric vehicles. Providing a wider ratio spread and seamless power delivery, the developments by Torotrak are expected to further stimulate the popularity of CVTs, already predicted to reach global sales of 12m per annum by 2020. Speaking at the 2016 International VDI Congress “Drivetrain for Vehicles” in Friedrichshafen, Germany, on 22ndJune, John Fuller, Director of Concepts & IP for Torotrak Group, delivered a presentation entitled, ‘High efficiency “full-toroidal” traction drive CVT – Technology improvements and application to front wheel drive cars’, discussing the latest advances that optimise variator technology for the light vehicle market. By combining its extensive experience in main drive and auxiliary drive transmissions, Torotrak has designed a variator concept with ratio spread of up to 12, operated by a low cost actuation system. The variator is suitable for both front and rear wheel drive platforms and should be highly scalable, with the traditional hydraulic version having already been demonstrated to power levels in excess of 300kW. “Market preferences are shifting from conventional automatics to CVTs,” commented Fuller. “Our solution can accelerate that trend by satisfying the needs of front wheel drive but also potentially rear wheel drive layouts, where the high torque levels and packaging constraints can be more challenging for conventional CVT technology.” Torotrak Group’s experience of auxiliary drives has led to reductions in system cost, in particular through the use of cost effective variator ratio control using the company’s PitchSteerTMtechnology. This enables a wide transmission ratio range which can improve vehicle efficiency in various ways: firstly, by reducing the amount of energy dissipation when pulling away from stationary and secondly by enabling the engine to run at lower speeds when cruising. Furthermore, the wide variator ratio spread enables simple and efficient transmission designs which maximise the use of ‘power splitting’, whereby only a fraction of the motive power is transferred by the variator, the remainder being transmitted by a direct mechanical path. The transmission can also be configured as an IVT (Infinitely Variable Transmission) with a ‘geared neutral’, that can further improve fuel economy by removing the need for an inefficient vehicle launch device which loses power as it slips. The system may be arranged to suit driver preferences in individual markets, for example to give the familiar driving sensation of a torque converter. Fuller also explained how electric vehicles (EVs) could benefit from the latest variator developments. “By increasing the wheel torque at low vehicle speeds, a toroidal CVT can improve gradeability and performance, or be an enabler for a downsized electric powertrain that is lower in cost and weight,” he said. “With the CVT configured to achieve efficiencies in excess of 95%, there is also potential to increase EV range”. The Torotrak Group presentation also examined the impact that toroidal CVTs and IVTs could have when used in autonomous vehicles. By providing continuous drive torque through seamless shifting, the technology is able to overcome the unpleasant sensation of torque interruption, to which occupants of such vehicles are highly sensitive. About TorotrakTorotrak (LSE: TRK) is an innovator and supplier of low carbon vehicle technologies, focussing on mechanical solutions that increase efficiency and reduce CO2emissions in vehicles. These include the V-Charge variable-drive supercharger, a range of Torotrak gearless traction drive transmissions, and the Flybrid energy recovery system, which uses a mechanically-driven flywheel to capture kinetic energy during braking and efficiently return it to the wheels.

Residents Impacted by Kern County’s Erskine Fire Should Contact Their Insurer for Immediate Help

SACRAMENTO, Calif. – As Kern County residents begin returning home from the fast-burning Erskine fire, ACIC and the Property Casualty Insurers Association (PCI) urge homeowners and renters to contact their insurer to begin the insurance claims and recovery process.&nbsp;“Losing everything in a wildfire is quite traumatic and life changing but insurers are there immediately to help,” said Mark Sektnan, ACIC president.&nbsp; “Homeowners insurance policies provide coverage for additional living expenses that can move policyholders out of shelters and into a hotel room or rental property. &nbsp;The first step is to call your insurer and get the claims process started.”Toll-free phone numbers for insurers operating in California can be found at: Insurer Toll-Free Policyholder Claim Phone NumbersThis week’s major wildfires are a reminder to all homeowners and renters to use this time to take a “Wildfire Reality Check” and ensure both your finances and property are prepared for wildfires.“The Wildfire Reality Check reminds homeowners and renters that there are simple steps to take before a wildfire that will reduce damage and make recovery easier,” said Sektnan. “Across California, it’s not a question of if there will be wildfires, but when. Now is the time to get ready.”The National Interagency Fire Center reports 20 active fires are burning in western states charring 150,852 acres so far.“Homeowners and renters need to take the time now to call your agent or insurance company and do an annual insurance checkup,” said Sektnan.&nbsp; “Make sure you have enough coverage to rebuild your home.&nbsp; Renters can bundle a policy with their auto insurance so all your belongings can be replaced.&nbsp;Making a home inventory is very easy just grab your smartphone and walk through your house.&nbsp; Remember to open drawers and closets and don’t forget to video what is in your garage.&nbsp; This easy home video could help make rebuilding your home much easier.”Learn more about how to prepare your finances and property at: www.readyforwildfire.orgWildfire Reality Check - Quick Tips on How to Prepare Your Finances:Read and understand your insurance policy. The typical homeowners policy covers damage caused by wind, fire and lightning. Comprehensive auto insurance generally covers damage or destruction to a vehicle from a fire.Review your insurance policy regularly with your insurance company or agent. If you have recently remodeled or built a new addition onto your property, be sure to increase the amount of protection to cover the upgraded materials or expanded square footage. Talk about types of insurance policies and learn the difference between a replacement cost policy, which generally provides for the repair or replacement of damaged covered personal property items, and an actual cash value policy, that will only provide reimbursement for the depreciated value of the covered personal property item. Decide which type of policy best fits your needs, and maintain adequate insurance, because once a wildfire turns into a fire storm there is little that can be done to halt its path of destruction. Make sure your policy reflects the right amount of square footage.Create and keep an inventory of your personal items and photograph or videotape them for documentation and claims purposes. Be specific: document how many TVs, computers, sets of towels and sheets, and other items you have. The more detail you record, the easier recovery will be. Keep receipts for major purchases and keep records of the age, current value, make, model and serial number of your personal property. Keep your inventory and a copy of your insurance policy at another location.Wildfire Reality Check - Quick Tips on How to Prepare Your Property:&nbsp; www.readyforwildfire.orgCreate 100 feet of defensible space around your home by clearing dead brush, grass and shrubs. Defensible space can slow the spread of a fire and help keep fire fighters safe.Clean out leaves, pine needles and dirt that may have collected in rain gutters or on roofs.Cut back tree branches that hang over the house or near the chimney, and create 6 feet of clearance between the ground and tree branches.Consider landscaping with fire-resistant trees and shrubs such as deciduous trees and low-growing shrubs.Remove any wood piles or wooden play houses against homes or structures.Keep operational fire extinguishers in kitchens.Install new batteries in fire and smoke alarms.Know your building codes and use fire resistant materials.Create a family plan and hold family evacuation drills.

The project consists of 32,300 m2 of residential space, 600 m2 of commercial space and 1,000 underground parking spaces on a new artificial island to be constructed, called Kronløbsøen. Kronløbsøen is located in Copenhagen’s and Scandinavia’s largest and most prosperous development area, Nordhavn, with close proximity to the inner city of Copenhagen. Currently, five pre-qualified architect teams are competing on designing the winning project, and the selected architect on the project is expected to be announced in August 2016. The joint venture is owned 50% by City & Port, 40% by PensionDanmark and 10% by Nordkranen. “Copenhagen is experiencing substantial urban development. Huge infrastructure projects have been initiated to support this increased demand, including a new metro line to Nordhavnen – one of Copenhagen’s most attractive new urban districts. Catella is pleased to have been engaged in securing both the debt and equity financing for Project Kronløbsøen. The new joint venture combines strong resources and skills from three leading parties in the Danish real estate industry. Jointly they offer not only capital but also a well-balanced operational platform to secure the completion of the project. Catella is proud to have been a trusted advisor in this complex and important project. The cooperation among the parties has been very positive and progressive, strongly supported by Bruun & Hjejle, Bech Bruun and Manzanti-Andersen Korsø Jensen, securing the legal agreements and closing”, says Jesper Bo Hansen, Head of Corporate Finance at Catella. “Institutional forward funding and participation in the early stage of the value chain has become increasingly important in the real estate industry, and Catella is well positioned to engage in such highly complex transactions, where securing debt and equity funding in combination with managing the different risks involved are important factors in creating higher returns and value for our clients. We will focus on such situations, not only in Denmark and the Nordics but across all our European market offices,” says Jesper Bo Hansen.

Sobi’s Elocta® (rFVIIIFc) approved in Switzerland for the treatment of haemophilia A

Swedish Orphan Biovitrum AB (publ) ( (Sobi™) (STO: SOBI) today announced that the Swiss Agency for Therapeutic Products, Swissmedic, has approved Elocta® (rFVIIIFc) for the treatment of haemophilia A. Elocta is the only recombinant factor VIII Fc fusion protein with an extended half-life approved for haemophilia A treatment in Switzerland to offer prolonged protection against bleeding episodes with prophylactic injections every three to five days. “The Swiss approval of Elocta is an important milestone for the country’s haemophilia A community, offering the potential to improve the care of people with haemophilia A,” said Krassimir Mitchev, M.D., Ph.D., vice president and medical therapeutic area head of Haemophilia at Sobi. “Our focus is now to ensure timely and sustainable access to Elocta for people living with haemophilia A in Switzerland.” Elocta is indicated for both on-demand and prophylaxis treatment of people with haemophilia A of all ages. The Swiss approval was based on data from Elocta’s pivotal, phase 3 A-LONG clinical study, which demonstrated the efficacy, safety and pharmacokinetics of rFVIIIFc in previously treated males 12 years of age and older with severe haemophilia A, and from the phase 3 Kids A-LONG clinical study, which demonstrated the efficacy and safety of rFVIIIFc in previously treated male children with haemophilia A under 12 years of age. Sobi and Biogen collaborate on the development and commercialisation of Elocta for haemophilia A. Sobi has final development and commercialisation rights in the Sobi territory (Europe, North Africa, Russia and most Middle Eastern markets). Biogen leads development and manufacturing for Elocta and has commercialisation rights in North America and all other regions in the world excluding the Sobi territory. - - - About Elocta® Elocta® (efmoroctocog alfa) is the first recombinant clotting factor VIII therapy in Switzerland that offers an extended half-life in the body. It is indicated for the treatment and prophylaxis of bleeding episodes in patients with haemophilia A (factor VIII deficiency) and can be used by people of all ages. Elocta was developed by fusing B-domain deleted factor VIII to the Fc portion of immunoglobulin G subclass 1, or IgG1 (a protein commonly found in the body). This enables Elocta to utilise a naturally occurring pathway to prolong the time the therapy remains in the body. While Fc fusion technology has been used in other therapies for more than 15 years, Sobi and Biogen are the first companies to utilise it in the treatment of haemophilia. As with any infused protein, allergic type hypersensitivity reactions and development of inhibitors may occur following administration of Elocta. For full prescribing information visit About Haemophilia A Haemophilia A is a rare, chronic, genetic disorder in which the ability of a person’s blood to clot is impaired due to missing or reduced levels of a protein known as factor VIII. People with haemophilia A experience bleeding episodes that may cause pain, irreversible joint damage and life-threatening haemorrhages. According to the World Federation of Hemophilia, an estimated 140,000 people worldwide are identified as living with haemophilia A.[1] (http://#_ftn1) Therapies for haemophilia A, the most common form of haemophilia, can be administered either on a schedule to help prevent or reduce bleeding episodes (prophylaxis) or to control bleeding when it occurs (on-demand). The World Federation of Hemophilia recommends that prophylaxis be the goal of therapy because it may prevent bleeding and joint destruction. As a result, regular prophylactic treatment may slow progression of joint disease and may improve quality of life. About Sobi™Sobi™ is an international specialty healthcare company dedicated to rare diseases. Our mission is to develop and deliver innovative therapies and services to improve the lives of patients.

General Meeting of The Marketing Group on 27th June, 2016

Stockholm/Sweden, June 27, 2016 - At The Marketing Group’s general meeting held in Enterprise House, Ocean Village, Southampton, SO14 3XB on Monday, 27th June 2016, a majority of the shareholders approved the following resolutions proposed by the Board. Ordinary Resolution 1: To resolve that all directors of the Company be and are hereby severally/jointly authorised to negotiate, finalise and execute the Agglomeration Agreement on behalf of the Company and do all such acts, matters, deeds and things and to take all steps and do all things and give such directions as may be required, necessary, expedient or desirable for giving effect to the said Agglomeration Agreement. Ordinary Resolution 2: To resolve that following consideration and the matters referred to in section 172(1) of the Companies Act 2006, the meeting resolved that the share incentive scheme would promote the success of the Company for the benefit of its members as a whole and will thus be implemented for all subsidiaries under the company including subsidiaries in the future that have signed the Agglomeration Agreement. Making Strategic Acquisitions to Maximise Shareholder Value “We are pleased to announce that the shareholders of The Marketing Group has given the Board the mandate to make strategic and tactical acquisitions within the group moving forward. This vote of confidence will allow The Marketing Group to scale up its operations and broaden our portfolio further as we make acquisitions. The Board is constantly on the lookout for profitable acquisitions as we seek to enhance the long-term interest and value of our shareholders,” commented Jeremy Harbour, Executive Chairman of The Marketing Group. Moving forward, the Marketing Group will make (i) strategic acquisitions without further recourse to members provided that: ·  Companies are profitable and debt free ·  Companies are bought using only stock and that stock is only issued where there is a demonstrable price earnings arbitrage opportunity so that there is a concentration of shareholder value from the stock issue ·  Companies will be subject to rigorous due diligence procedures and must provide audited financial statements ·  CEOs will be subject to an executive due diligence process ·  Key shareholders will be subject to a lockup period of 360 days ·  Companies will be subject to the non-executive board approval so as to ensure the acquisitions are aligned with The Marketing Group’s growth plans ·  In the event of a conflict of interest, all conflicted directors will abstain from the vote and it will pass on a majority of the remaining directors (ii) opportunistic and tactical acquisitions within the Group to increase profitability provided that: ·  Such tactical acquisitions will only be carried out with the approval of the executive Board of Directors to ensure that this will be in the interests of the shareholders and if there is a demonstrable concentration effect on shareholder value from the stock issue ·  Key talent and customers are acquired for no more than three times earnings to be paid with additional shares ·  All mergers and acquisitions transactions will be made with shares instead of cash Share bonus scheme      “As part of our plans to creating an environment where all member companies are motivated to collaborate and propel our growth further, we are also pleased to implement a share based incentive scheme to the founding CEO’s of each subsidiary now and in the future. This will allow our subsidiaries to de-risk, give them scale and liquidity, and ultimately drive shareholder value,” added Jeremy Harbour. Under this share bonus scheme, which will be correlated to the company’s operating performance, each company will have a target based on their previous full year audited EBIT. This is so that for every one euro currency equivalent that they are able to increase EBIT in the following years audited financial statements, the scheme member will receive three euros value of shares at the prevailing share price at that time, to be calculated on the 30 day average stock price immediately prior to the release of the audited financial reports. The additional shares will be subject to a lockup period of 360 days, which will serve to create a jagged edge or laddered effect to the expiry of lockups and also will slightly redistribute ownership towards the best performing subsidiaries. Furthermore, three euros of shares for one euro of additional profit is a relatively small reward compared to the additional share value that would be delivered through the uplift. We believe that the lockup and opportunity to get further bonuses for over performance will provide a powerful inducement to drive value for all shareholders.  You may find the recording of this General Meeting on 27th June 2016 under the section “General Meeting” of The Marketing Group’s website  For more information, please contact Hannah Middleton, Director and Communications DirectorPhone: +65 8193 7625E-mail:    Jeremy Harbour, Executive ChairmanPhone: +65 8661 1776E-mail:  The Marketing Group in brief The Marketing Group plc was incorporated in May 2015 with the purpose of gathering successful marketing businesses under one roof.

Iveco Trakker on the Case at Hillhead

Iveco will exhibit an on/off-road Trakker 8x4 tipper at Hillhead this year – a major exhibition for the quarrying, construction and recycling sectors. The vehicle will feature on the Case Construction Equipment stand to reflect the close relationship between the two brands of CNH Industrial – one of the largest capital goods companies in the world. The Trakker AD340T36K has been mounted with a Wilcox tipper body and is built to tackle off-road missions in the construction and demolition sectors. It is powered by an Iveco Cursor 9 engine rated at 360 hp, and driven through a ZF 12-speed EuroTronic gearbox which can be operated in semi-automatic or fully automated mode, to best suit the terrain. Like all Trakker models, the vehicle on display uses Iveco’s patented HI-SCR engine technology to meet Euro VI emissions limits without the need for exhaust gas recirculation (EGR). HI-SCR increases productivity as it requires neither driver involvement nor downtime from active regeneration, meaning no fuel is utilised to burn particulates and no energy is lost to cool down exhaust gases. HI-SCR offers multiple advantages including reduced fuel consumption, extended diesel particulate filter (DPF) life and increased safety. This vehicle also features Iveconnect – an integrated satellite navigation, infotainment, fleet management and telematics system which allows fleet operators to communicate with drivers, whilst having access to accurate location information at any time. It is finished in striking Dakar Green paintwork, to reflect Iveco’s close involvement with the Dakar-2016 winning Petronas Team De Rooy Iveco squad. Iveco uses the Dakar Rally as the ultimate proving ground to confirm the robustness of its vehicles. Iveco Iveco is a brand of CNH Industrial N.V., a World leader in Capital Goods listed on the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE: CNHI) and on the Mercato Telematico Azionario of the Borsa Italiana (MI: CNHI).

Södra to divest Södra Wood Rottne to Ess-Enn Timber AB

Södra Wood Rottne produces glued boards in pine and spruce and has 15 employees. “Rottne is a small operation that we consider would be better driven by another owner as we have limited synergies.  However, we will continue to offer the product in our range, although we will no longer produce it ourselves,” says Jörgen Lindquist, President of the Södra Wood business area. The buyer is Ess-Enn Timber AB, formed in 1981, which is one of the leading producers of glued boards in Scandinavia, with an annual capacity of 18,000 cubic metres. The company has its existing production in Skruv, where planing operations are also conducted. The company has sales of about SEK 100 million and 40 employees. “We are confident about this acquisition, which will give us economies of scale, longer production series and thus more cost-efficient production. With increased volumes, we will achieve savings effects in administration, purchasing and sales. A cost-efficient operation is a necessity in facing up to the competition from the Baltic states and Poland. We will investigate in an unbiased manner how to operate the business in Rottne moving forward and the way in which it will be integrated with the operation in Skruv,” says Göran Johansson, Chairman of the Board of Ess-Enn Timber AB.

Nordic Nanovector and AREVA Med to investigate potential of lead-212 conjugated anti-CD37 antibody for treating leukaemias

Oslo, Norway, and Courbevoie, France, 28th of June 2016 Nordic Nanovector, a biotech company focusing on the development and commercialisation of novel targeted therapeutics in haematology and oncology, and AREVA Med, the AREVA medical subsidiary developing lead-212 (212Pb) based cancer therapies, announced today that they have entered into a collaboration agreement to investigate the potential of a 212Pb-conjugated anti-CD37 antibody for the treatment of leukaemias. Leukemias are orphan diseases with a significant unmet medical need. Prevalent relapsed AML and CLL patients are more than 60,000 per year worldwide. This represents a growing market worth over USD 5 billion by 2020. Under the terms of the agreement, Nordic Nanovector will provide its chimeric anti-CD37 antibody (NNV003) and its expertise in antibody radionuclide conjugate (ARC) development while AREVA Med will provide expertise in the production of 212Pb, in the development of Targeted Alpha Therapies using this radionuclide and in site-specific bioconjugation methods through its Macrocyclics subsidiary. The radionuclide 212Pb has important characteristics that make it an attractive payload for the treatment of leukaemias where there is no substantial tumour mass and tumour cells are in close proximity to healthy tissues. These properties are based on the decay chain of 212Pb with the emission of very short range alpha particles, thereby offering the potential to create innovative therapies with highly localized targeting and tumour cell killing with improved tolerability. Preclinical studies to determine the initial safety and efficacy profile of the novel anti-CD37 212Pb-ARC will be conducted at AREVA Med’s facility in Plano, Texas, USA. Nordic Nanovector has the option to license any resulting ARCs for further development and AREVA Med has the option to license the use of CD37-targeting antibodies for its own purposes. Both companies will contribute to the collaboration, which will also benefit from grant funding awarded in February 2016 to Nordic Nanovector from the Research Council of Norway’s user-driven research-based innovation program (in Norwegian; Brukerstyrt innovasjonsarena, BIA). Nordic Nanovector’s Chief Scientific Officer, Jostein Dahle, commented: “The CD37 antigen is expressed on the surface of many haematological cancer cells, including leukaemia cells, making it an important target for ARC-based therapies. Our long-term strategy is focused on building a pipeline of products that leverages our expertise in CD37-targeting and ARCs, combined, where necessary, with therapeutic payloads and complementary expertise from partners such as AREVA Med.

Stand Out in Competitive Jobs Market with Multiple Languages and Qualifications

The UK’s newest hospitality training platform is giving applicants an overriding edge, with a curated range of courses covering key learning areas. Convenient, cost effective and CPD accredited, The Training Terminal ( is a hospitality hub for aspiring professionals wanting to stand out in the fiercely competitive modern job market. While UK unemployment fell to just 5.2% in 2015, the jobs market remains hugely competitive. The hospitality sector is particularly cut throat, with the latest statistics from CV-Library revealing that there are 25.9 applicants for every posted job. This makes it the sixth most competitive sector in the UK. For candidates, it’s essential to stand out from the crowd in order to score a position. Hospitality hub The Training Terminal is helping applicants do just this, with a core range of six courses. Current options include Food Safety Level 1,  Food Safety Level 2, Food Allergens, Health and Safety Level 1, Health and Safety Level 2 and Introduction to Hotel Revenue Management. Over the next few months the in-house development team will debut a new range of specialised courses, with a niche focus on coffee, wine, cocktails, fire safety, customer service, manual handling and more. Mark Illingworth, Commercial Director, says, “It’s great to see the British jobs market making a recovery, however the demand for employment doesn’t quite meet supply, which has created a bit of a gap. With over 25 applicants vying for every advertised hospitality role, it’s important for candidates to hone in on their CV strategies and do everything they can to get noticed. With The Training Terminal, hospitality applicants can upskill with CPD accredited courses that will win them instant credibility.” In a competitive move of its own, The Training Terminal offers all content in ten different languages. As well as English, hospitality applicants can also complete training in Polish, Spanish, Russian, French, Greek, Italian, German, Portuguese and Simple Chinese. As the British hospitality industry is markedly multicultural, the option of completing training in a language other than English is a great way for students to get the most out of every course. Robyn van der Toorn, Creative Director, says, “Multiculturalism is particularly colourful within Britain’s hospitality sector, and while most employees are required to speak English it’s not necessarily their first language. This means that when it comes to learning, content is far more effective when delivered in their native tongue. We appreciate this factor, which is why we’re debuting our core courses in ten different languages. To us, this ensures a fairer learning experience for all.”  To find out more about The Training Terminal and sign up for a CPD accredited course in one of six languages, go to: Facebook: Twitter: 

Stora Enso evaluates expansion of Gruvön Mill

STORA ENSO OYJ PRESS RELEASE 29 June 2016 at 09.00 EET Stora Enso has decided to commence a study in order to assess the feasibility of building a cross laminated timber (CLT) production unit in connection with its Gruvön Mill in Sweden. The expansion would add a total annual capacity of approximately 75 000 m3CLT. The feasibility study will evaluate the profitability of the possible expansion, as well as integration benefits and design criteria for the plant. The investment under study would be cost competitive and would have synergies with the existing mill in Gruvön. The findings of a recently completed pre-feasibility study supported continuation of the process. The feasibility study is expected to be completed by the end of 2016. If the investment is approved following the feasibility study, the capital expenditure for the expansion is estimated to be in the range of EUR 30−34 million, which falls within the group’s long term capital expenditure policy of keeping capital expenditure into fixed assets approximately at the same level as depreciation. In addition to fixed asset investments, Stora Enso invests approximately EUR 100 million annually in biological assets.    “Our target is to grow cost competitive CLT capacity located favourably in relation to target markets. The existing Gruvön Mill has been selected due to its favourable logistics and secured raw material supply. By utilising our new competitive building materials, we aim to capture market share from competing materials in the construction sector. The decision regarding a possible expansion of Gruvön Mill will be made once the feasibility study has been completed,” says Jari Suominen, EVP Division Wood Products. Currently, Stora Enso has an annual capacity of 130 000 m3CLT at its Bad St. Leonhard and Ybbs mills in Austria.

Autoliv is cooperating with Toyota in a voluntary recall of certain Prius and Lexus CT vehicles

Seven incidents involving the Toyota Prius have been reported where a side curtain airbag has partially inflated without a deployment signal being given by the airbag controller. In each of those incidents, the vehicles were parked and unoccupied, and there have been no reported injuries.The root cause analysis of this issue is continuing. No incidents have been reported in any vehicles produced by the four other OEMs who used the same inflator, pointing to vehicle specific characteristics contributing to the issue in addition to a manufacturing issue. The inflator manufacturing process suspected of contributing to the issue was changed in January 2012 and the vehicles now recalled by Toyota represent approximately half of all such inflators manufactured until January 2012.”For Autoliv, safety and quality are our priorities and we are fully committed to support Toyota’s action in resolving this issue, and will support Toyota in the implementation of solution to the issue”, said Jan Carlson, Chairman, President and CEO, Autoliv.Toyota, in conjunction with NHTSA and the MLIT in Japan, have concluded that an additional retention bracket will address this issue.It is too early to determine the final cost to Autoliv, but it is currently expect it to be at the lower end of a range of 10 to 40 million USD, net of expected insurance recoveries, as published in Autoliv’s 10Q statement on April 29.Inquiries:Thomas Jönsson, Group Vice President Communications.                       Tel +46 (0)8 58 72 06 27About AutolivAutoliv, Inc. is the worldwide leader in automotive safety systems, and through its subsidiaries develops and manufactures automotive safety systems for all major automotive manufacturers in the world.
