M.I.T. Enterprise Forum of Chicago Delves Beyond Intellectual Property into ‘Ownable Distinction’

M.I.T. panel discussion focuses on creating "ownable distinction" – a compelling new strategic concept for achieving and sustaining business growth.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) April 26, 2022 -- While the topic of intellectual property (IP) is often talked about and largely misunderstood, a company’s IP is only half the battle in carving out market command, according to a local panel of IP experts. A compelling new notion called “ownable distinction”, which is being used as a powerful business tool to fully leverage corporate IP, was debated last week at the April gathering of the MIT Enterprise Forum of Chicago.


In reality, IP is a poorly understood “legal fiction,” according to Darren Cahr, a partner with the Chicago office of Gardner Carton & Douglas LLP and one of three MIT Enterprise Forum panelists. An intangible asset, a company’s intellectual property is nothing more than a “piece of paper saying you have a right to defend it,” Cahr said.

On the other hand, applying the concepts of ownable distinction (OD) to its intellectual property is how a company gains and holds a strong position in the market. With OD, a company has the ability to ultimately create a market in which it is the undisputed leader.

“It’s not enough to have a clever brand or a unique technology. IP is irrelevant without OD,” Cahr said. “IP has little value unless it’s on a strategic vector taking you in a direction. With OD, you must choose and know that direction. IP without OD is like a car without a steering wheel.” He added: “IP is a hammer. It’s not a pot of gold. It’s a tool that needs a goal.”

Companies often have lots of IP of different kinds floating around the organization without a clear executive understanding of what it is, where it is and what business applications it can best serve. A notion emanating from a combination of business, legal and branding strategy, OD is grounded in the context of the market’s dynamics and its customers -- and done correctly, OD is a force that helps prevent commoditization.

"With 75 percent of today’s companies not knowing what their IP is worth and 80 percent of the value of U.S. companies locked up in their IP, the need for IP to be thought of differently is more pressing now than ever before," Cahr said. Added Pragmaxis LLC founder and fellow panelist Peter Balbus: “Businesses today face essentially two choices: commodify your competition or be commoditized yourself. OD is the antidote to commoditization.”

For OD to become a reality within a company, it must receive top-down support and be driven with “intentionality,” Balbus said. “It must directly address the question of where a company’s IP stands in the context of the market and its future direction.” Balbus, a recently elected MIT Enterprise Forum board member, cited hockey legend Wayne Gretzky as being great because he skated to where the puck was going rather than where it was.

One obvious example of solid OD is the Apple iPod. While consumers can buy competing products that are at least as advanced technically, Apple has built and branded an immersive experience around the device and consumers have responded overwhelmingly. Other notable examples of successful OD include the Volkswagen Beetle, Starbucks and the Motorola Razr.

On the flip side, various companies have been innovative with their IP but failed to follow up with solid OD. You may recall the Sony Betamax from 1975, the original Radio Shack laptop in 1983 or the Motorola “brick phone,” which spawned an entirely new cellular telecommunications industry before market leadership was captured by Nokia.

On a humorous note, Balbus highlighted examples of other trinkets which were innovative but lacked clear ownable distinction, including an alarm clock on wheels that hides until its user finds it and a toilet paper dispenser worn on a person’s head for convenience in blowing the wearer's runny nose.

Thinking About a Lake Aerator? Beware Myths and Puffed-up Promises

Misconceptions about lake aerators have led water managers to buy into the wrong technology while blue-green algae problems worsen

Dickinson, ND (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) April 26, 2022 -- If you are considering a lake aerator such as a diffused air bubbler to overcome water problems such as blue-green algae takeovers, don’t be a victim of myths and misconceptions. In the end, you may be squandering money, energy and valuable time that could be used to implement a more effective water health-recovery solution.

Whether trying to get rid of scum, fish kills, or rancid odors - or simply replacing copper sulfate treatments - you should understand the inherent limitations of the most common type of lake aerator – particularly the diffused air bubbler.

Air bubblers consist of a shore-mounted air compressor that blows air through submerged pipes to an air diffuser “bubbler” on the lake floor. However, the water pushed from the bottom is colder and denser than water closer to the surface, causing only a limited amount of water to rise all the way up. That water then sinks quickly, limiting any brief lake aeration to the proximity of the bubbler and providing little control of blue-green algae.

Furthermore, the agitation caused by compressed air at the bottom by this type of lake aerator can cause phosphorous to rise from sediment to feed blue-green algae – the opposite of the intended effect.

As an alternative, high-volume solar-powered, circulators called SolarBees are providing aeration that far exceeds diffused air bubblers and other lake aerator systems.

Manufactured by Pump Systems of Dickenson ND, SolarBee systems circulate 10,000 gallons per minute, mixing and aerating 50 acres of lake surface area with one unit. These self-contained flotation units pump water from just above the thermocline of the lake, and spread it horizontally across the top of the lake for long distances. This action provides even oxygen throughout the epilimnion (the upper part) of the lake and achieves effective blue-green algae control.

This unique lake aeration technology dramatically increases dissolved oxygen levels and begins to clarify water, reduce odor, and fight blue-green algae within weeks.

Revolutionary New Armor Can Save Lives by Protecting Soldiers and Helping Thwart Attacks at Home

New composite armor can shield people and facilities against the deadliest of conventional attacks, including car bombs, rocket-propelled grenades, and the so-called “unstoppable” .50 cal. BMG. Unlike other barrier materials that degrade under attack, this product actually gains strength by absorbing projectiles into its mass.

Rome, GA (PRWEB) April 13, 2022 -- Ballistics Research, Inc., of Rome, Georgia has developed a material that can save the lives of American servicemen and women and greatly increase security against terrorism at home and abroad.


The material, dubbed Advanced Anti-Ballistic Compound, or AABC, is a new, patent-pending, composite polymer with a very high strength-to-weight ratio. It is capable of stopping and safely absorbing projectiles from small arms fire and every kind of conventional (non-nuclear) explosive device. In testing, AABC has proven its effectiveness even against the .50 cal. BMG, a heavy military machine gun round previously called “unstoppable.”

AABC weighs less than most other viable protective materials and is the only known material that actually gains strength under attack. While other materials degrade under attack, AABC absorbs projectiles into itself, building density and mass, and becoming increasingly resistant to assault.

Teamed with a second new development, AABC holds tremendous promise for saving the lives of American troops and vastly increasing the security of buildings and sensitive facilities, such as chemical or nuclear plants. Though it may be produced in any form or shape in which its properties are desired, AABC offers additional unique advantages when in the form of the Three-Dimensional Interlocking Protective System, or 3-D IPS, also a development of Ballistics Research.

Interlocking cubic modules made from AABC, the patent-pending “building blocks” of the 3-D IPS, are produced in virtually any size. For example, some applications may call for cubes that measure 10” X 10” X 10”, while other applications may be better served by a system that utilizes very large modules of one cubic yard.

Each module interlocks on six sides with any other cube of the same size, affording speed of assembly and endless flexibility in configuration. No tools or formal instructions are required for assembly, and every cube of the same size is identical to all its mates; There are no special corner modules or end caps.

Utilizing a true three-dimensional, six-sided interlocking system, the IPS cubes form extremely strong structures that may be built to any desired size and configuration, with walls of any thickness. The system's structural integrity is "ram proof," impervious even to ramming with cars or trucks. After use, the modules are easily disassembled for storage or transportation for reuse.

The 3-D IPS may be used to armor bunkers, buildings, pipelines, pump stations — any critical need equipment or installation that requires protection from ballistic or explosive attack. Military units with a need for permanent, semi-permanent or highly mobile physical security are likely to find the modules valuable and convenient. Existing buildings are easily and quickly secured with the 3-D IPS, and the system is adaptable for new construction as well.

Founded in 1999, Ballistics Research, Inc., is dedicated to the development of new technologies with value for security and defense of personnel, sensitive facilities and other vital assets, as well as for law enforcement and forensic science.

New Heat Transfer Options for Low-Temperature Processes

Food-Grade and Cryogenic-Range Heat Transfer Fluids Now Available for Industrial Temperature Control.

(PRWEB) April 7, 2022 -- Processors of custom chemicals, pharmaceutical ingredients, precision plastic products, and food additives had a common need: heat transfer fluids better suited to the specific requirements of their cooling processes.

Paratherm Corporation, a long-time manufacturer of high-temperature heat transfer fluids, responded to these needs by developing a new line of low-temperature transfer fluids.

The newest, Paratherm MG™ mid-range fluid is a food-grade version of the Paratherm MR® heat/cool fluid. It eliminates the significant design and operational problems found in steam/chilled-water systems, and it is certified HT-1 food-grade by the NSF®, the follow-on to the retired USDA H-1 certification. The fluid is recommended for processes operating from 0°C to 260°C.

Processors with more severe low-temperature requirements have begun to discover the unique Paratherm LR™ low-range heat transfer fluid. This food grade (NSF HT-1) fluid operates between -40°C and +204°C. With a flash point of >60°C, it is classified as a Class III Combustible liquid (not a Flammable liquid) under 29 CFR 1910.106 (OSHA). This assists in reducing safety concerns. Chemical, cosmetic, and electronic-materials manufacturers have replaced Silicone-based, glycol/water, and other fluid chemistries with the Paratherm LR fluid.

Paratherm’s cryogenic-range Paratherm CR™ heat transfer fluid (Pat. Pend.) was specifically developed to provide the ultra-cold process temperatures (down to -100ºC) pharmaceutical and fine chemical manufacturers need to increase product purity while simultaneously cutting production time. The low viscosity permits higher fluid turbulence, resulting in faster heat removal than silicone liquids or d-limonene-based fluids.

"Visiting and talking to hundreds of thermal-fluid users about their system problems and production challenges," says Jim Oetinger, Paratherm Corporation Technical Manager, "you get a feel for what sorts of specialized products are missing from the marketplace."

In addition to the heat transfer fluids and system cleaners, Paratherm Corporation provides system-oriented troubleshooting services and thorough application and process assistance.

Knowledge Management Solutions, Inc. to Provide Free Online Seminar on "The Effective E-Learning Project"

Knowledge Management Solutions, Inc. (KMSI), a leader in Web-based Training and E-Learning Solutions, will be conducting an Online Seminar on “The Effective E-Learning Project” on April 12, 2022 and will feature MG (Ret.) Robert H. Scales, Jr.

(PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- KMSI is pleased to announce that Major General Robert H. Scales, Jr. will be featured in its Live Webcast – E-Learning Return on Investment (ROI) Web Seminar Series on April 12th. This online seminar will address why elearning projects are often disabled by technical integration issues, content compatibility issues, Learning Management Systems that simply won’t play the elearning content, and, worst of all, the cost of “unknowns”. The seminar will also address prevailing ROI calculations, why instructional design principles are important as a factor in both determining ROI and measuring what learning was actually accomplished, and why SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model) is important when planning for and managing successful Government elearning projects.


Dr. Scales is currently President of COLGEN, Inc., a well-respected consulting firm supporting the U.S. Military and the defense industrial complex. Since retiring from the Army, he also served as President and CEO of Walden University and President of Capstar Government Services (CGS), a wholly owned subsidiary of Educational Testing Services. Prior to joining the private sector, Dr. Scales served over thirty years in the Army, retiring as a Major General. His last two assignments were as Deputy Chief of Staff at the Army’s Training and Doctrine (TRADOC) Command and as Commandant of the United States Army War College. He is a sought-after lecturer to academic, government, military, and business groups in the United States, Australia, Asia, the Middle East, Europe, and South America. Dr. Scales is the author of several books on military history, serves as a senior military analyst for National Public Radio and Fox News Network and is a frequent commentator and consultant for other major media networks on issues relating to military history and defense policy. He is a graduate of West Point and earned his PhD in history from Duke University.

“KMSI is very pleased to have Dr. Scales contribute to our Live webcast series. He has considerable experience with E-Learning ROI issues and those who join the event on April 12th will have the chance to hear firsthand what he has learned regarding this important subject” said Jack Lee, KMSI’s President and Chief Executive Officer. Brett Wilson, KMSI’s Vice President of Eastern Operations added “Dr. Scales is one of the most recognized and authoritative figures on military training so we are fortunate to have his participation in this event”.

European Manufacturer Strengthens Fabric With Alcryn® MPR™

Alcryn MPR has successfully been used to create a durable, coated fabric that is resistant to chemicals and weathering.

Wilmington, DE (PRWEB) April 6, 2022 -- Advanced Polymer Alloys (APA), a division of Ferro Corporation (NYSE: FOE) and the world’s leading supplier of Melt-Processible Elastomers™ (MPEs), announces that its Alcryn® Melt-Processible Rubber™ (MPR) has been successfully used to create a durable, coated fabric that is resistant to chemicals and weathering.


Morclean® (Chesterfield, U.K.), a European manufacturer of industrial cleaning equipment, is extrusion-coating a polyester fabric with Alcryn MPR for use in the WashMan, a mobile wash pad that collects wastewater during industrial car and truck cleaning operations. In the United Kingdom, it is against the law to discharge untreated wastewater into the environment. That requirement spurred the development of the WashMan, which acts as a portable basin, collecting the wastewater – which often contains soap residue, grit, automotive fluids, diesel fuel, transmission oils and other fluids – for proper treatment and disposal. The wash pad replaces the need for otherwise expensive or impractical water treatment facilities.

Morclean selected an Alcryn-coated fabric because of its cost (compared to silicone- and polyurethane-coated fabrics), ease of processing and fabrication, and resistance to industrial cleaning chemicals and long-term weather exposure. An added benefit is that Alcryn MPR can be easily welded, which allows for large calendered sheets to be cut and fitted on-site if emergency maintenance is required.

“Weaving Alcryn into the design of the wash pad allows us to create a product that delivers better chemical resistance at a lower cost and in more colors than other materials we considered,” said Peter Morley, director of Morclean.

“The market for high-performance coated fabrics is growing and Alcryn MPR’s physical characteristics and chemical properties make it a good material choice in virtually any application,” said Freddy De Clercq, European marketing manager for APA. “Morclean’s wash pad is proof that Alcryn will hold up very well in demanding, real world applications.”

For information about Alcryn MPR contact Freddy De Clercq in Europe at 0032[0]2 673 1356, or in the United States, contact Jeff Senich at 888-663-6005.

About Alcryn MPR
Alcryn MPR delivers the durable performance characteristics of rubber and easily processes on conventional plastics equipment, which provides cost savings. Alcryn MPR does not require compounding or pre-drying before processing. Since parts made from Alcryn require no vulcanization, scrap can be recycled repeatedly with no detrimental effect on performance or appearance. When compared to soft TPEs and many vulcanized rubbers, Alcryn MPR outperforms in durability, coefficient of friction, and resistance to abrasion, chemicals, oils, fuels, and long-term exposure to sunlight and other aspects of weathering. Every grade in the product line can be made flame-retardant using a concentrate supplied by APA.

About APA
Advanced Polymer Alloys (APA), a division of Ferro Corporation, is the world’s leading supplier of Melt-Processible Elastomers (MPEs).

APA’s broad line of elastomers spans the entire TPE price/performance range – from the wide appeal of soft, affordable DuraGrip™ to top-performing Alcryn MPR, the world’s only melt-processible rubber.

Bridging the gap between design vision and engineering reality, APA’s unique material innovations deliver ideal performance properties to enhance the quality, appeal, and marketability of virtually every product.

APA’s goal is to provide customers with optimal material solutions for their specific needs – whether drawing from our full MPE line or compounding custom alloys.

Ferro Corporation is a major international producer of performance materials for industry, including coatings and performance chemicals. The company has operations in 20 countries and recorded sales of $1.6 billion in 2003.

The Best Scientific Conferences Anywhere, The Best Scientific Meetings Everywhere

Bacterial Adhesion and Infection, First West Africa Conference: A First Class First World Scientific Meeting in a First Class Third World Setting. Mangosteen’s opening conference blazes a trail, introducing world class scientists and cutting-edge research to the African heartland.

Groningen, The Netherlands (PRWEB) April 5, 2022 - "A strong blend of science and Africa makes this conference unforgettable" is how microbiologist and first-timer to the region Ben Appelmelk of Amsterdam's VU Medical Center described 'Bacterial Adhesion and Infection, 1st West Africa Conference', Mangosteen's inaugural expert meeting held in Senegal and The Gambia in February 2005.

The best scientific and technological advances demand the most highly trained scientists. The same scientific minds demand the best in state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation to make observations and to carry out all manner of innovative experiments. This is not in dispute – give the best people the right tools, direct enough funding towards a problem and all too often magic will out and the scientists will find a way.
"But when it comes to communicating recent discoveries, talking about future collaborative projects and brainstorming new ideas with like-minded colleagues”, says chemist Anthony England, “the best discussions and most effective scientific exchanges demand not a multimillion dollar conference centre or beautifully furnished seminar room but little more than a relaxed environment and friendly atmosphere – something that’s available at very low cost in many parts of the world which all too rarely feature on any leading scientist’s list of 'been there' destinations." England currently heads Mangosteen, an exciting initiative which focuses on promoting the value of science, scientific research and scientific literacy in both the developed and developing worlds.

The uniquely styled two part double venue meeting concentrated on cutting-edge aspects of the study of protein-carbohydrate interactions in the adhesion of bacterial pathogens, was chaired by chemist Roland Pieters of Utrecht University, The Netherlands and attracted scientists from as far away as the US west coast.

"Fantastic", is what German biologist A. Salam Khan of the University of Würzburg's Institut für Molekulare Infektionsbiologie had to say about participating and his week shared between the Senegalese capital and the picturesque Gambian countryside, "I would have no hesitation in going back to attend a meeting in this area of West Africa. The quality of talks and participants was at the level of any successful international meeting. The information provided by Mangosteen was excellent and the way that it was provided indicated that the organizer was very much concerned with the well being of the participants."

Sauli Haataja of the University of Turku, Finland found it to be "a unique, touching experience", adding that it "changed many of my thoughts about Africa, poverty, and the Western lifestyle".

England adds, "Mangosteen believes in first hand exposure. Who knows what problems a young researcher may go on to address in the laboratory as a direct result of making such a personal connection with the situation and problems of an impoverished part of the developing world so early on in their career."

'Bacterial Adhesion and Infection II', the second in the series of international research meetings on this important topic will take place in West Africa in early 2007.

BioFit Adds Ergonomic Improvements to Class 10 Clean Room Seating

BioFit Engineered Products announces ergonomic improvements that increase the adjustability of its Microtech high-tech chairs for Class 10 clean rooms and Class 10 combination clean room/static control applications. Armrests that are both height and width adjustable and additional controls for seat and/or backrest adjustment are now available as options on BioFit Class 10 chairs. BioFit can provide the chair adjustability needed for virtually any high-tech work application.

WATERVILLE, OH (PRWEB) April 4, 2022 -– BioFit® Engineered Products announces ergonomic improvements that increase the adjustability of its Microtech high-tech chairs for Class 10 clean rooms and Class 10 combination clean room/static control applications.


Adjustable armrests and additional controls for seat and/or backrest adjustment are now available as options on BioFit Class 10 chairs. The selection increases opportunities for customizing basic Class 10 models to meet the exact requirements of individual users and specific high-tech applications.

BioFit now offers armrests that are both height and width adjustable and have either upholstered or self-skinned urethane pads. Adjustability increases the armrests’ capability to provide proper arm support that can greatly reduce shoulder, back and neck strain from prolonged seated work. The adjustability also adds to a chair’s flexibility in providing comfort and support for multiple users.

The expanded selection of ergonomic controls enables BioFit to provide the chair adjustability needed for virtually any high-tech work application. Depending on the chair model and control selected, a seated individual can adjust seat and backrest height and tilt as needed to support posture changes and work comfortably at desk, bench or high-bench work levels. Seat and backrest can be locked into place as required for the stability needed for close work.

BioFit can offer the additional adjustability by manufacturing Class 10 chairs and stools with a patented Microtech filtration system within the seat cushion. The filtration system replaces an air exchange system with a bag encased in a pan attached to the seat. The new system preserves the original appearance of the chair model while trapping particulates and allowing the seat to conform to body shape.

BioFit also announces Class 10 seating price reductions, made possible by replacing the air exchange system, and manufacture in a clean room to assure compatibility at Federal Standard 209E’s Class 10 level. BioFit assembles, wipes down and packages the Class 10 seating components in a clean room environment. The already-upholstered components are packaged in certified clean room bags, labeled and shipped to the customer for final assembly in a clean staging area. No wipe down by the customer is required.

BioFit offers many ergonomic chair models in its Microtech seating line. The performance package for Class 10 clean room chairs includes chrome-plated metal parts and Grade 2 vinyl upholstery in addition to the Microtech filtration system. The polypropylene filter media achieve Class 10 protection levels by trapping particles 0.10 microns and larger. The filter allows unrestricted air flow with a filter permeability of 180 CFM/Ft.2

Class 10 combination seating protects against static charges by providing 100 percent continuity, with static drain routes around parts that are insulated in standard models, including the armrests. The seating has chrome-plated metal parts, ESD vinyl for static dissipation, conductive casters or glides, and a drag chain for grounding the chair or stool to an ESD-control floor or mat.

BioFit Engineered Products, located outside of Bowling Green, Ohio, is a leading manufacturer of rugged and dependable furniture products. For more information, call BioFit toll-free at 1-800-597-0246 (United States and Canada).

Groningen, The Netherlands (PRWEB) April 1, 2022 -– The best scientific and technological advances demand the best most highly trained scientists. The very same scientific minds demand the best in state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation to make their observations, to analyse samples and to carry out all manner of innovative experiments. This is not in dispute – give the best people the right tools, direct enough funding towards a problem and all too often magic will out and the scientists will find a way.

"But when it comes to communicating recent discoveries, talking about future collaborative projects and brainstorming new ideas with like-minded colleagues, the best discussions and most effective scientific exchanges demand not a multimillion dollar conference centre or beautifully furnished seminar room, but little more than a relaxed environment and friendly atmosphere – something that’s available at very low cost in many parts of the world which all too rarely feature on any leading scientist’s list of 'been there' destinations", so says former research chemist Anthony England.

The uniquely styled two part meeting, split between the neighbouring nations, concentrated on cutting-edge aspects of the study of protein-carbohydrate interactions in the adhesion of bacterial pathogens, was chaired by chemist Roland Pieters of Utrecht University, The Netherlands and attracted scientists from as far away as the US west coast.

Mangosteen's founder sums up, "there are fascinating locations throughout the developing world which are not only perfectly suited to hosting scientific meetings but which need the worldwide scientific community to take an interest in their situations and particular problems. Indeed, it's in all of our best interests that we do so. Who can say how any meeting participant might be affected or inspired by spending time in one of the world’s least fortunate regions? And who knows what problems a young researcher may go on to address in their careers as a direct result of making such a personal connection early on in their studies."

'Bacterial Adhesion and Infection II', the second in the series of international research meetings on this important topic will take place in West Africa in early 2007.

About Mangosteen
Mangosteen exists to organize and facilitate regular series of professional meetings and gatherings in a variety of fascinating yet all too often forgotten parts of the developing world.

Our current focus is on science, scientists and scientific meetings - but not exclusively - contact us about other disciplines.

We work to foster high quality peer-peer interactions of all kinds - from international standard, cutting-edge conferences to smaller workshops - in short all kinds of meetings.

Inexpensive Professional Mettings - In Low-Cost, High Value Locations
Our cost-effective approach ensures that these short business trips address several important issues - all by arranging for hard-working, highly educated individuals to take a cheap, enjoyable and enlightening break away from the daily routine of work.

Not only will meeting participants be treated to a relaxed atmosphere and the time to discuss their work in a stimulating new environment, but they will also be provided with rare opportunities to fully interact with scientists and students from institutes in the developing world.

Ultimately, we believe that the increase in both the quality and quantity of scientific information exchanged between these two disparate communities will unquestionably prove invaluable to both.

In the immediate term, any amount of recognition from the worldwide scientific community is welcomed by those working hard to improve daily life in the developing world. At the same time, visitors from the developed world are unlikely to feel anything other than greatly enriched by the experience. Not only enriched and informed, but relaxed and entertained, with fun and flexibility both being integral elements of our programmes.
