Author: 3C Company, Inc.
Dateline: Wed, 02 May 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “KENILWORTH, N.J. - May 2, 2007 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 3C Company, Inc., a leading provider of Business Performance Optimization (BPO) solutions to the Life Sciences Industry, announced today that it has aligned with yet another Global Pharmaceutical Firm to implement Clintelligence - 3C Company's Business Intelligence Solution for strategic and tactical oversight of their Research and Development portfolio.”

Pharmaceutical Giants Take Aim at Tightening Productivity in Research and Development Using State-of-the Art Business Intelligence Tools

KENILWORTH, N.J. - May 2 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 3C Company, Inc. (www.3cpharma.com), a leading provider of Business Performance Optimization (BPO) solutions to the Life Sciences Industry, announced today that it has aligned with yet another Global Pharmaceutical Firm to implement Clintelligence - 3C Company's Business Intelligence Solution for strategic and tactical oversight of their Research and Development portfolio.

(c) Send2PressThe skyrocketing costs of drug development and the resulting impact on drug prices are well publicized but what is less well known is what the Industry is doing about it. Pharmaceutical firms are taking a closer look at the factors that drive up the cost of doing business in their world. "Our Clintelligence clients rank at the top of the Industry for product Sales and Development pipelines - but as their portfolios expand so too does the complexity of monitoring their R&D efforts. Complexity leads to inefficiencies and inefficiencies lead to costly delays and missteps," states Karen Briegs, Director of Marketing at 3C Company. "We help these firms bring visibility to areas of the process that are lagging so that they can be corrected, and show them how to also use Clintelligence as a source of historic information to make better decisions moving forward. Firms who strive to learn more about their strengths and weaknesses will win in the end. "

3Cs clients consider their use of Clintelligence as a competitive edge and are reluctant to give away this knowledge to their competition. In fact, 3C's Clintelligence recently won an award from Cognos, Inc. for Best Industry Solution for Life Sciences and is the only commercially available Pharmaceutical business intelligence product that provides state-of-the-art reporting and analytics on all of the critical topics across Research and Development (R&D) such as where to locate research centers, how many patients are participating in their studies worldwide, how quickly data is being collected for analysis and most importantly how a firm is performing against its peers. Clintelligence displays these results - often called Key Performance Indicators or KPIs - in the form of easy to use maps, graphs, reports and analytical modules in an interactive, customizable web-portal format.

An IT Director at one of the firms using Clintelligence states, "We've been able to get this tool up and running for several hundred users in about 12 weeks, a fraction of what a BI implementation of this size would normally take due to the adaptable structure of Clintelligence and the knowledge 3C has about our Industry."

"The clients we partner with are growing and shaping the next generation of drug development programs and they recognize the need to provide their people with real-time visibility to status AND performance information if they hope to maintain their edge. Clintelligence provides them with data from many sources in a single interface, bringing this information to business teams in a fashion that is clear and will drive results, " said Peter Oudheusden, President, 3C Company. "We look forward to continuing to help our clients be successful and see Clintelligence as the way to achieve that success."

About 3C Company
3C Company has been achieving strategic business advantage for its pharmaceutical, biotechnology and medical device clients since 1997 through leading edge and industry-specific technologies, global systems integration, e-development and benefit-driven consulting. Our products and services are leveraged by top firms in the life sciences industry to address their most pressing needs for business optimization, reducing costs and improving productivity.

Virtuous Woman Has New Fashion Accessory; Subtle Companion to Help Enhance a Woman’s Life – Redefines Virtue

Author: IBI
Dateline: Tue, 01 May 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “ORANGE, Calif., May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- 'Our new perfume is the perfect fashion accessory for a woman of virtue,' said Rick Larimore, CEO, of IBI, a niche fragrance company based in Orange, CA. 'Our perfume's presence in the market helps bring into focus the real essence of what 'virtue' is really about.'”



A R T I C L E:

ORANGE, Calif., May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- "Our new perfume is the perfect fashion accessory for a woman of virtue," said Rick Larimore, CEO, of IBI, a niche fragrance company based in Orange, CA. "Our perfume's presence in the market helps bring into focus the real essence of what 'virtue' is really about."

Virtuous woman - (c) Send2PressTypically, actions of virtuous women are thought of as being good or moral behavior. Mr. Larimore asserts that, "Virtue is really your relationship with God, Christ or Spiritual Self. The depth of that relationship is revealed in your behavior. Anything that enhances that relationship enhances your virtue. Virtue(R) perfume does that, by reminding you, through scent, to think of God and practice His presence."

"When a woman cares for her family and friends with her incredible strength of purpose, selflessness, and loving care for the wellbeing of each, she does it from this inner connectedness. It's to honor these demands a woman faces, that Virtue(R) was created."

"When women are so busy, they can lose their center and feel overwhelmed. Taking time for their inner-Self and God... they can tap this 'wellspring' and renew their strength, personal power, intuitiveness, ability to love, and creativity in handling their daily demands. Virtue(R) can help remind them to inwardly connect," urges IBI's CEO.

"A woman can be working the 'To Do' list in her head, feeling overwhelmed. She notices the smell coming from her wrist. It gently reminded her it was there, and in the reminder, she remembered why she's wearing Virtue(R). Taking a moment, she thinks of God and lets His peace embrace her, giving a moment's rest and renewed strength. Help, through the gentle reminder of a very inspired fragrance."

Vicki Pratt, President of IBI, whose inspiration led to Virtue's creation, offers, "Created entirely from Biblical text, it had to be authentic, but contemporary, yet, truly unique. Unique enough to be a reminder of God."

"Some women will say I prefer this or I prefer that, but this is not about preferences. It's about being reminded to renew your-Self at God's internal well. A fragrance, that is to remind you of God, can't smell like a mass-market perfume. Use it with reverence for 'that' part of you enhances Virtue's ability to help you connect," she promises.

It can, not only, help you connect with God, but with others who smell your beautiful fragrance. Opportunity to share spiritually becomes an option, for those so inclined.

Its ingredients and high-end packaging puts Virtue's normal perfume retail in the $110-120/bottle range. Redemption of IBI's Premiere certificate places its retail at nearly half that.

IBI offers to share its lowered mark for fundraising with non-profits and religious groups seeking to spread the scriptural message of God's love and His presence, and raise funds for their good works. Interested organizations can apply at www.virtueperfume.com.

In honor of Mother's Day, the website offers free shipping and introductory $15 certificates for immediate redemption. Any virtuous woman, be they a bride, wife, daughter, graduate or someone special, are all honored with this discount through May.

IBI, formed in 2005 as a niche fragrance company based in Orange County, CA. Virtue(R) perfume introduced at the Miss Anaheim pageant, March 11th, and was officially premiered on Virtue's website April 3rd. Four other products are currently in development.

For more information, please call 714-974-8333 or visit www.virtueperfume.com.

A R T I C L E:

CHANTILLY, Va. - May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- OMNIPLEX World Services Corporation (www.omniplex.com), a leading U.S. government contractor providing contract background investigative services and protective security services to U.S. government agencies and global corporations, has launched a new and updated corporate website that is focused on attracting and recruiting experienced and new candidates, including former law enforcement and military personnel.

(c) Send2PressThe site also complements the look of its commercial collateral, bringing more consistency to all its promotional materials.

"The need for investigative and protective services support is greater than ever before," says Julien Patterson, OMNIPLEX's Founder and CEO. "We provide unparalleled training and very competitive compensation. Many of our most successful recruits are former law enforcement and military personnel looking for a new, rewarding, and flexible career opportunity. We hear over and over from our staff and from our new hires that for those who enjoy this field and who are looking to energize their career and move up, that OMNIPLEX is the place to be," he said.

David Nemzoff, manager of OMNIPLEX's publication services stated, "We feel this new look is more representative of how we view the company and the market position we have established for ourselves. More importantly, we wanted to make it easier for the viewer to get the information they are looking for." Fewer clicks for the user, faster times for browser load and easier processes for content management are all part of the rationale for the site.

The site maintains most of its navigational structure, but places elements for better graphical impact and user preferences.

Know Mold Corporation Introduces New Product to Protect Builders and Homeowners

Author: Know Mold Corporation
Dateline: Tue, 01 May 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “CHICAGO, Ill. - May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- While mold damage continues to be a growing problem, the Know Mold Corporation, an Illinois-based corporation, is taking a proactive role by offering a new product - KnowMold(TM) - to prevent mold before it becomes a pest. According to a study conducted by the University of Arizona, mold is present in every home; Illinois has the highest count of mold spores in the nation.”



A R T I C L E:

CHICAGO, Ill. - May 1 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- While mold damage continues to be a growing problem, the Know Mold Corporation, an Illinois-based corporation, is taking a proactive role by offering a new product - KnowMold(TM) - to prevent mold before it becomes a pest.

According to a study conducted by the University of Arizona, mold is present in every home; Illinois has the highest count of mold spores in the nation.

The Know Mold Corporation is working with builders and home buyers to not only treat, but to prevent mold, through a 25 year-warranty program.

"Many builders deal with the brunt of mold problems that develop after the sale of a home," Darryl Morris, president of Know Mold Corporation," said. "Our new warranty alleviates the pressure placed on builders and provides joint responsibility between the builder and homeowner."

Morris explains that KnowMold(TM) contracts are similar to termite contracts that many homeowners can assume. The first year, the builder keeps the warranty current. At the end of the first year, the homeowner has the option to continue service, for a minimal fee, for up to 25 years.

The cost to the builder is .35 per square foot. For example: 1,000 square feet x .35 equals $350; the cost to the homeowner, annually, is $129.

Annually, mold experts will conduct home visits to ensure that no problems exist. If a problem is detected, it is quickly resolved and treated with an organic, non-toxic product that instantly eliminates the mold - or what is now commonly referred to as a "pest."

How does it work? At the builder's request, the wood structure of the home is treated with a revolutionary, EPA-registered, 100 percent natural solution that cleans and eliminates existing mold on lumber, and also prevents mold from growing on treated surfaces; it contains no bleach, ammonia, alcohol, metals or volatile organic compounds (VOCs).

An antimicrobial shield is applied to the interior of wood surfaces and interior wall cavities of the home which physically encapsulate and inhibit mold and fungal spores.

If during the warranty period mold growth occurs in the treated area, all remediation expenses associated with removing that growth are honored under the warranty.

The Know Mold Corporation also offers training for builders to become applicators. Call 1-888-825-YEAR(9327), or visit: www.KnowMold.com.

HOUSTON, Texas - Apr. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Mosaic Tile Supplies, LLC, a Texas-based producer and importer of high-quality mosaic tile, announces the addition of a new design tool - "The Maximizer" - an online, Flash-based application that offers customers the ability to create custom mosaic tile blends for interior design and new building projects.

(c) Send2PressAccording to Haleigh Stallworth, co-owner of MosaicTileSupplies.com, until now, people interested in changing or enhancing their home or office environment had limited options.

"Our customers realize the importance of their living and work environments," Haleigh explained, "and color is one of the most popular and effective ways to make a statement or a change. Our new customization service makes it easy for anyone to create the perfect blend of colors while allowing them to visualize it before purchase or installation."

Over 400 colors and styles which include opaque, transparent, and metallic glass tiles, are accompanied by a choice of two surface finishes - gloss and matte.

The current version of "The Maximizer" allows users to choose from four different tile catalogs, arranged by size, and to combine any colors, finishes or product lines within that size category; more options are scheduled to be added in the near future.

"The Maximizer" offers a number of unique features that sets it apart from other online design tools. These features include: a user interface with drop-down panels to optimize screen area; triple zoom capability; and an easy-to-use slider bar for percentage adjustments.

Users can temporarily save thumbnail images of up to three blends or variations of a blend for comparison. Saved blends are displayed in the "My Blends" space where "The Maximizer" displays the price per sheet and calculates square footage from the user's measurements. A "Submit" button begins the order process.

More standard options include the ability to view blends with different grout colors, and to order sample swatches of any blend for color confirmation prior to finalizing a full order.

"We first conceived of the tool in 2002," Haleigh said. "We've tested the application and are now confident that it is ready to be released to the public. Due to trends in the industry and advances in technology, now is the right time."

"The Maximizer" is the result of over 1,000 hours of combined work between Charles Deisler of Radeis Interactive, Inc. (www.radeis.com), Keith DeWald of Becoming Tile, LLC (www.BecomingTile.com), and the Stallworths (www.mosaictilesupplies.com).

Randall Stallworth, co-owner of MosaicTileSupplies.com, confirms that the on-site fabrication staff can complete custom blend orders of up to 1,500 square feet in 10-14 days, and a standard residential kitchen area in as little as two days.

"Most big-box retailers can't offer these turnaround times, and our prices are hard to beat as well," Randall said. "Custom blends start at less than $7.00 per square foot."

Since the spring of 2000, MosaicTileSupplies.com has been selling mosaic tile products via the Internet. In 2002, they began importing new lines, and their own brands were introduced one year later.

The company's Kaleidoscope(R) Glass Mosaic Tile has been used in high-profile residential and commercial building projects, nationwide. For example, the product was used in the notable 4,300 plus square feet Wing Lung Bank Mural in Alhambra, CA, which received first place in the 2007 Spectrum Awards at the Coverings Tile and Stone Exposition; and on four episodes of Extreme Makeover: Home Edition, (Sundays on ABC), in the past six months.

Alma Lasers(TM) Receives FDA Clearance for the Accent(TM) Dual Mode RF System

Author: Alma Lasers
Dateline: Mon, 30 Apr 2007

freeNewsArticles Story Summary: “BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Apr. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Alma Lasers a global leader in laser, light-based, and radio frequency (RF) technologies used in aesthetic medicine announced today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Accent(TM) Dual Mode RF System in the United States.”



A R T I C L E:

BUFFALO GROVE, Ill. - Apr. 30 (SEND2PRESS NEWSWIRE) -- Alma Lasers a global leader in laser, light-based, and radio frequency (RF) technologies used in aesthetic medicine announced today that it has received clearance from the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) to market the Accent(TM) Dual Mode RF System in the United States.

Alma Lasers - (c) Send2PressReceiving its first FDA indication for the treatment of wrinkles and rhytids, the Accent System has been used successfully by medical professionals worldwide to treat a variety of dermatological and aesthetic conditions.

"We're delighted to receive the marketing clearance for the Accent product in the U.S.," stated Howard Kelly, CEO for Alma Lasers. "The unique dual mode RF modalities of the Accent system will provide physicians with the most advanced technology available in non-invasive aesthetic medicine, creating a higher standard in patient satisfaction. The Company is committed to pursuing additional clearances from the FDA, in order to expand the clinical indications for the Accent system in the United States."

Non-invasive, non-ablative, and virtually pain free, the Accent system combines two radio frequency modes into one device. Each mode is delivered by a discrete handpiece to enable volumetric RF thermotherapy at different tissue depths within the body.

In the BiPolar mode, RF energy penetrates the skin superficially, facilitating the treatment of areas where skin is thinner and more delicate such as areas of the face where the skin rests directly over the bone. The Alma proprietary UniPolar? mode, delivers RF energy deep into the dermal and sub-dermal layers to efficiently treat large volumes of tissue. Unlike other RF based technologies, the Accent system does not require consumables. Therefore, treatments are clean, efficient and economical.

Ziv Karni PhD President and founder of Alma Lasers stated; "The Accent product was engineered for safety and ease of use while maximizing efficacy. The continuous movement of either handpiece results in a gradual build-up of heat to achieve the optimal therapeutic effect, while offering greater patient comfort. With over one thousand Accent systems installed world wide, the product has enjoyed an unparalleled safety record."

"Non-invasive treatments are the largest and fastest growing category in aesthetic medicine," said Yariv Matzliach, Executive Vice President of Global Marketing for Alma Lasers. "The Accent system has been approved for use in Europe, Asia, Australia, Latin America and Canada, where dermatologists, plastic surgeons, OB/GYN's and general practitioners have achieved outstanding results and a consistently high level of patient satisfaction. Now with its first FDA cleared indications, the Accent system is poised to provide medical professionals and their patients in the United States with a new level of safety, efficacy and satisfaction in the non-invasive treatment of wrinkles and rhytids using a combined treatment with Unipolar and Bipolar RF technologies."

According to one Principal Investigator in the FDA study, Macrene Alexiades-Armenakas, MD, PHD, Assistant Clinical Professor, Yale University School of Medicine, and Director, Dermatology and Laser Surgery in New York City, "I found the Accent system to be superior to prior generations of RF technology in the treatment of skin laxity, particularly on the neck. It is also a remarkable breakthrough that the system is painless and requires no anesthesia. Accent treatments can be performed rapidly with no downtime and can be applied concurrently with other non-ablative modalities, such as injectables to achieve better results in what is termed the 'non-surgical facelift.' Immediate skin tightening is evident and the results are often considered striking."

"We have found the Accent system to be very safe and relatively comfortable with a high percentage of responders," states David H. McDaniel, MD, Assistant Professor of Clinical Dermatology and Plastic Surgery, Eastern Virginia Medical School, and Director of the Institute of Anti-Aging Research Center of Virginia in Virginia Beach. "Compared to other RF devices we have used, treatment with the Accent system is much less painful, faster and easier to perform. It also allows more 'artistic' use on the face. Although responses vary, a high percentage of treated subjects showed a visible response. Some observe an immediate skin tightening of the face. Many of the subjects noticed a difference in the way their clothes fit after a few treatment sessions. It can also be used as part of a broader spectrum of non-surgical facial rejuvenation treatments or procedures which might include fractional resurfacing, IPL or LED photomodulation, and Botox? or other injectable fillers."

Maurice Sherman, MD, Associate Professor of Clinical Surgery, University of California - San Diego, and the owner of the Del Mar Cosmetic Medical Center in southern California, said "We obtained remarkably good results with the Accent system. It was consistent for all of the patients that followed the protocol. All of them showed an improvement. Some dramatic, some moderate, but every patient expressed satisfaction with the results. Everyone said that their skin felt tighter the day after the first treatment." Added Dr. Sherman, "Of all the RF systems on the market today, I feel the Accent is the most effective technology out there."
