Pragmaxis, LLC Announces Marketing Automation Readiness Assessment Service

Structured 30-45 day marketing automation readiness assessment validates a company’s suitability for marketing automation technologies – or identifies the remedial actions required to get prepared.

Chicago, IL (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- Pragmaxis, LLC announced today the launch of a new marketing automation readiness assessment service that can help companies determine whether they are good candidates for emerging marketing automation technologies. The assessment uses a templated approach reflecting marketing "best practices" that is tailored to meet the specific objectives of the client organization. The assessment focuses on the clarity, scope and alignment of 6 key organizational readiness parameters:

1) Strategy & Goals
2) Core Processes
3) Organization & Management
4) IT Infrastructure & Support
5) Culture & Capacity to Embrace Change
6) Potential Financial Benefits

Depending upon the findings of the assessment, the final deliverable is either an executive-level Business Case for Moving Forward or a detailed List of Remedial Actions Required before the acquisition of a marketing automation system would be advisable. Clients typically will know which way the findings are headed by the midpoint of the assessment. The assessment process is especially designed to minimize its impact on the client organization in terms of disruption of ongoing activities and personnel time consumed.

According to Peter Balbus, Managing Director of Pragmaxis, LLC, "Marketing departments are increasingly coming under fire internally to justify their expenditures and show causality between marketing campaigns and sales. They're also being asked to embrace six-sigma techniques to gain greater efficiency and effectiveness. At the same time, external pressures such as tougher privacy laws, Sarbanes-Oxley and other legislation are making it impractical to support marketing operations with homegrown solutions and simple workflow automation tools. Senior management – and not just in sales and marketing – is starting to realize that they must embrace more advanced approaches to automate marketing activities or find themselves at a real competitive disadvantage."

About Pragmaxis, LLC
Pragmaxis, LLC is a management consulting firm that specializes in assisting executives in defining and operationalizing top-line growth initiatives, eBusiness and marketing strategies for Fortune 1000 corporations. The firm helps senior executives understand how their industries are likely to change in the next 2-5 years and what steps they should be implementing today to achieve and sustain competitive advantage in the future.

The APH Group Named as Swainsboro/Emanuel County, Georgia Joint Development Authorities’ Site Consultant for UK Companies

Through its alliance with the Swainsboro/Emanuel County Joint Development Authorities, The APH Group will be assisting UK companies setting up U.S. operations in hub of South Georgia.

Savannah, GA (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- The APH Group is pleased to announce its agreement with the Swainsboro/Emanuel County, Georgia Joint Development Authorities as its exclusive site consultant for companies in the United Kingdom considering entering the U.S. market

The APH Group's CEO, Susan Brod, in announcing this alliance says “While working with overseas companies, The APH Group has identified a need for companies to have more than a sales presence in the United States. They may require warehousing facilities, value-added assembly or complete manufacturing facilities. For an overseas manufacturer wanting to enter the North American market, the Swainsboro/Emanuel County Economic Development Authorities offers compelling reasons to develop their U.S. presence in Emanuel County, Georgia.

They can put together a very attractive package for companies that may include local incentives, tax abatements, free port exemptions, free job training programs and infrastructure financing programs. The Swainsboro/Emanuel County area also offers an attractive, convenient location midway between Savannah, Augusta and Macon, Georgia, a local college-educated population to meet the needs of business and industry, outstanding educational facilities from pre-school through secondary, a $10mm airport expansion, five industrial parks, outstanding quality-of-life and a low cost of living. We are very pleased to be able to work with Swainsboro/Emanuel County to assist our clients with developing their U.S. presence in Swainsboro.”

Andy Riley, President of the Swainsboro/Emanuel County Joint Development Authorities commented “Our community can offer some compelling reasons to locate a facility here. Now that the APH Group is our partner and exclusive site consultants to the UK, that message is getting out and we are very excited. We have decided to partner with The APH Group because of their ability to provide us the means to access UK and European businesses. They provide us a conduit through which we can jointly communicate the many ways a business location in Emanuel County can benefit their clients and open up the U.S. markets to them.

We just opened the first technology park in rural Georgia. BellSouth announced last week that our community is their first “BellSouth Connected Community”. Some of the advantages we offer include an ideal location, just an hour outside of the Port of Savannah and just off an Interstate highway. We have a workforce draw area of 115,000 with over 16 colleges and universities within a 100 mile radius. We qualify for local, state and federal government incentive programs to benefit companies bringing jobs here due to our higher unemployment level and lower over-all income levels.

We value our existing employers here as well and work hard to help them to expand and grow; an employer continues to be valued by us after they locate here. The natural beauty and mild climate we have is another asset we almost take for granted, but visitors always comment on it.

We want companies to come to Swainsboro/Emanuel County and see how beautiful an ideal business location site can be.

The APH Group and Mr. Riley will jointly participate in workshops throughout the United Kingdom in March 2005 to present the possibilities that Swainsboro/Emanuel County, Georgia can offer to overseas companies.

Feb 1 Deadline Ahead: Employers Must Post Injury & Illness Summaries by Feb 1, Safety.BLR.com Reminds Safety Managers

Clear a space on the company bulletin board. Safety.BLR.com reminds safety managers that OSHA regulations require that OSHA’s 300A form, a summary of all 2004 workplace illnesses and injuries, must be posted prominently in the workplace between February 1 and April 30 2005.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) January 31, 2022 -- Clear a space on the company bulletin board, folks. OSHA regulations require that OSHA’s 300A form, a summary of all 2004 workplace illnesses and injuries, must be posted prominently in the workplace between February 1 and April 30 2005. Failure to comply with OSHA recordkeeping requirements could result in fines of $10,000 (some organizations are exempt because of size or type of business).

Steve Quilliam, editor at Safety.BLR.com, a website that makes safety training and compliance easier, explained some other changes in the new law, which went into effect for injuries occurring in 2003: “One of the most confusing concepts of recordkeeping has been restricted work. The new rule,” he explained, “clarifies the definition of restricted work or light duty and makes it easier to record those cases.” Restricted work activity occurs as the result of a work-related injury or illness that keeps an employee from doing the routine functions of the job or from working the full workday.

Quilliam points out another key difference: “OSHA is trying to better define work-related injuries, to ensure that cases clearly unrelated to work are excluded.” OSHA says that an injury or illness is considered work-related if an event or exposure in the work environment caused or contributed to the condition, or significantly aggravated a preexisting condition.

The 300A summary must list the total numbers of job-related deaths, injuries, and illnesses that occurred in 2004 and were logged on the OSHA 300 form. Employment information about annual average number of employees and total hours worked is also required.

Safety Meetings and Safety Talks
Business & Legal Reports, Inc.’s website, Safety.BLR.com, features hundreds of safety meetings – in PowerPoint®, outline, or talk formats — plus safety tools like checklists and clipart. Plain-English interpretations of all federal and state OSHA regulations are also provided.

Safety.BLR.com offers a free download of its members-only summary of OSHA Recordkeeping Requirements. To get the download go to http://www.blr.com/81001600/WBS560, or call 800-727-5257

Meyer Plastics Dedicates Brown Thermoforming Machine to 40 Year Employee Lorris Brown

In a celebration at their Indianapolis facility, Meyer Plastics Inc. President Ralph R. Meyer recognized the 40 years of service by Plant Manager Lorris Brown. Employees, vendors and family alike gathered as Brown was presented a congratulatory plaque and "thermoforming machine" cake, as well as a "naming dedication" for a newly-installed rotary thermoforming machine from Brown Machine LLC

(PRWEB) January 30, 2022 -- In a celebration on January 5th in their Indianapolis facility, Meyer Plastics Inc. President Ralph R. Meyer recognized the 40 years of service by Plant Manager Lorris Brown. Employees, vendors and family alike gathered as Brown was presented a congratulatory plaque and “thermoforming machine” cake, as well as a “naming dedication” for a newly-installed rotary thermoforming machine from Brown Machine LLC

“Lorris has been instrumental to the success of our company’s growth and profitability,” stated Meyer. “His knowledge of the thermoforming process and how a contract thermoforming business is successfully operated is unmatched today.”

The new machine is now named “The L. Brown Thermoformer”—and for good reason, says Meyer. “He really felt strongly about replacing the older machine with the new technology, because it took a lot of tweaking that only his years of experience could make productive—and that worried him about our future thermoforming capacity/operation (especially in what happens after his retirement),” said Meyer. “Now, the new machine can be set-up and operated by personnel with much less experience…and gray in their hair!”

Meyer Plastics recently purchased a second rotary thermoforming machine from Brown Machine to replace a 30 year old machine, helping the company to greatly increase production rates, reduce set-up times, and provide better quality work for our contract customers, according to Meyer. The Brown R-223E-46 Rotary Thermoformer can process 4’x6’ sheet sizes, offers PLC digital control/touch screen (greatly improved analog/timer performance compared to older machine being replaced), quick-adjusting sheet clamp systems for faster set-up, infrared ovens with solid-state zone control and many other performance and safety features. (Meyer has operated a larger rotary Brown thermoformer since 1995, as well.)

On Meyer Plastics
Since 1950, Meyer Plastics has been dedicated to serving the plastics industry with material supplier (plastic sheet/rod/tube, mold making materials, adhesives/tapes/sealants, and other supplies) and contract design/fabrication/ thermoforming services. With six locations found across Indiana and Ohio, Meyer is strategically located to serve the customer. For more information contact Meyer Plastics, 5167 E. 65th Street, Indianapolis, IN 46220.

American Dairy Moves Corporate Headquarters to China’s Capital: Beijing

American Dairy, Inc. (OTCBB: ADIY - News), one of the leading producers and distributors of milk powder and soybean products in China, announces that they have moved their corporate headquarters to Beijing,China.

(PRWEB) January 29, 2022 -- American Dairy, Inc. (OTCBB: ADIY - News), one of the leading producers and distributors of milk powder and soybean products in China, announces that they have moved their corporate headquarters to Beijing,China.

In 2004 American Dairy relocated their corporate offices from Heilongjiang Province located in the North East region of China to Beijing. The strategic decision to move from the rural province into the urban city was motivated by one main reason; to improve the quality of American Dairy’s personnel. Beijing, the capital of China, is known for its educational resources; many of China’s top universities and high level vocational schools produce much of the country’s most valuable workforce.

“To reach our full potential and to operate more efficiently and effectively, we must equip ourselves with the best human resources available.” explained Leng You-Bin, President/CEO.

The new office is located in Beijing’s Chaoyang District. Since the 1980s, 13,000 enterprises have settled in Chaoyang. It is home to more than 60 percent of the foreign business agencies in Beijing, over 3,000 foreign companies, 167 international news agencies, and two-thirds of the 158 of the global top 500 transnational companies that have invested in Beijing. (1)

Chaoyang features highly developed culture and education. In 2000, the region registered 310 primary and secondary schools and 53 institutions of higher education. With a large number of State-class cultural facilities such as Beijing Workers’ Stadium, the National Olympic Sports Center and the Capital Library, the district boasts rich cultural resources. The China International Exhibition Center, the China World Trade Center and the National Agricultural Exhibition Center hold various kinds of exhibitions each year, turning the district into a national exhibition and cultural center. (2)

In order for American Dairy to continue growing as one of the leaders in the industry, the company must increase recognition of the ‘Feihe’ brand. Immediately following the move to Beijing, American Dairy was able to strengthen the quality and size of their marketing and distribution teams. As a result, ‘Feihe’ was able to enter into new provinces and reach more consumers.

Other related companies located in Beijing, China include: Hormel Foods, Corp. (NYSE: HRL); Kraft Foods, Inc. (NYSE: KFT); Nestle (Zurich: NESN); Siemens AG (NYSE: SI); Nike, Inc. (NYSE: NKE) and Johnson & Johnson, Inc. (NYSE: JNJ).

Certain of the statements made herein constitute forward-looking statements that involve risks and uncertainties. In such instances, actual results could differ materially as a result of a variety of factors including the risks associated with the effect of changing economic conditions in The People's Republic of China, variations in cash flow, reliance on collaborative retail partners, and on new product development, variations in new product and service development, risks associated with rapid technological change, and potential of introduced or undetected flaws and defects in products and services and other risk factors detailed in forms filed with the Securities and Exchange Commission from time to time.

Each package contains ten different schedules for 24/7 coverage with the same number of employees on every shift. Each schedule includes a spreadsheet showing the on-off work pattern, an explanation of how the schedule works, and the advantages and disadvantages from both business and employee perspectives. There is also a summary sheet listing key features of all ten schedules, such as the number of crews, average overtime, longest and shortest breaks, and the number of weekends off each year.

Until now, designing a new shift schedule was not an easy job. Information on the subject is scarce, and relevant examples are nearly impossible to find. Scheduling software programs will manage an existing schedule, but they won’t create a new one. Consultants that specialize in shiftwork issues usually provide much broader services than just schedule design, and their costs may be prohibitive for smaller firms.

Bruce Oliver, the founder of Shift Schedule Design, explains why he is offering these packages. “Few managers can afford to spend days or weeks searching for examples of different schedules, or trying to develop solutions on their own. We assembled these packages to make it easier to examine a variety of different shift schedules side-by-side. Since the packages are primarily intended for smaller organizations, we priced them to fit a limited budget.”

The schedule packages will facilitate the process of selecting a new schedule. They will reduce research time, provide multiple options to choose from, and make it easier to determine employee opinions and preferences. For more information, contact:

Shift Schedule Design was launched in June 2004 to help small businesses find the best work schedule for their situation. The company designs schedules tailored to meet an organization’s unique requirements and preferences. Mr. Oliver was previously employed by a leading shiftwork consulting firm. He has over 20 years of business management experience.

CLRB Hanson Selected to Produce IED Warning Signs Used in Iraqi Elections

Three thousand signs with the message, "Warning: an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) was Placed Here to Kill Travelers and Voters,” are being placed in voting pathways and locations during the Iraq elections. The sign informs people to contact the authorities if they see IEDs or terrorist activity.

New Hope, MN (PRWEB) January 28, 2022 -- Minnesota-based CLRB Hanson was selected to produce over three thousand signs for use during the Iraq election to warn voters and travelers of possible terrorist threat. Insurgents have placed explosive devices to kill or scare people from voting and reduce the number of voters that participate in efforts to reestablish peace in their country. Of the more than 100,000 signage companies worldwide that could have been contacted, CLRB was selected because of there unique ability to produce signs in the native languages and deliver quickly. Some of the signs feature unique "Glow in the Dark" technology.

"Certainly this adds a new meaning to the words – 'Made in America,'" said Tom Daher. "One must wonder what impact those signs will have on voter turn-out."

Each city has a special sign with numbers to call the Iraq National Army in the event of any terrorist activity or possible Improvised Explosive Devices (IED) threat. During Iraq’s first democratic election on Jan 30, 2005, these signs will be used to inform voters and others in Iraq that IEDs have been placed throughout Iraq, to kill or hurt voters while attempting to vote for a new leader of their country.

The sign has four skull bones in each corner and is written in Arabic, Kurdish and English. The warning sign is 24 inches by 24 inches printed both sides so incoming voters can read it from both directions.

Most Americans have never had to face this type of adversity at the voting booth. Americans of all race, creed and color have paid dearly over the years to maintain our freedoms. Our freedoms are not to be taken for granted when we think of the number of times US fighting men and women have fought to maintain world peace at home and abroad.

"In our small community of New Hope, MN there is truly new hope that Iraq will become a peaceful democratic country, could potentially become a free trade country and could import many products from the USA from many small businesses," said Cindy Hanson.

About CLRB Hanson
CLRB Hanson is a small specialty printing company with 20 employees that specializes in Made in The USA production. Collectors’ versions of the signs are also available as mouse pads. Media copies of the sign are available upon request.

Retractable Screen Door Industry: Wizard Industries Seeks Retractable Screen Door Dealers

The CEO of Wizard Industries asserts that the retractable screen door industry is on the verge of a rapid expansion and this affords the entrepreneur a unique, once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to build a successful business. The retractable screen door is rapidly gaining a foothold in the after market home improvement industry and retractable screen door dealers are reaping the benefits.

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB) January 28, 2022 - “The retractable screen door business is one of the best kept secrets in the booming home improvement industry ,” says Mel Zemliak, CEO of Wizard Industries, a retractable screen door manufacturer that has experienced exponential growth the past three years, “and increasing public awareness makes for a business opportunity of a lifetime,” he goes on to say.

While retractable screen doors have been around for decades, public awareness is just now beginning to grow in leaps and bounds and this, Zemliak says, is largely because the industry as a whole has traditionally relied on its distributors and dealers to promote the product. “Five years ago, if you asked 100 consumers if they knew what a retractable screen door is, the vast majority would have given you a blank stare. Today that isn’t the case thanks in part to the exposure the retractable screen door industry has received through home shows and television programs like This Old House,” Zemliak says.

What makes the business so exciting to Zemliak is that up to two-thirds of dealership sales come from referrals. “Upscale homeowners who have had retractable screen doors installed naturally want to show their friends and their gushing endorsements account for a large number of our dealer network’s sales. Our dealers know that if they sell one, more often than not, they’ll find themselves taking measurements for the fabrication of a unit in the same neighborhood,” he says.

As a business opportunity, the retractable screen door industry is particularly attractive right now in that there aren’t nearly enough dealers to handle the growing demand. “While there are currently four major manufacturers offering high quality retractable screen doors in North America, there are still a hundred or more major metropolitan areas that don’t have a single dealer. This affords the individual looking for a business opportunity a unique window of opportunity,” he says.

Wizard Industries is but one of four major manufacturers of high quality retractable screen doors. All offer budding entrepreneurs the tools to get into the trade, but Wizard has a slightly different approach to expansion. “Most of our competitors focus on building their businesses developing relationships with area distributors. We cut out the middleman. Why should a dealer pay a premium for product when he can deal directly with the factory,” he says.

To get into the business, dealers have to make a nominal investment in training, inventory, and marketing, but the cost is not as daunting as that associated with the purchase of a home improvement franchise. “Unlike most home improvement business, one only needs $20,000 to get started and that’s a small investment considering the cost of most home improvement businesses,” he says.

According to Zemliak, the average dealer nets from $35,000 - $50,000 the first year and that is if he/she handles all installations alone. “Once a dealer gets in the flow of things, his/her growth is only limited by the number of installers he/she hires,” he says.

Dealers are provided a full week’s training at the company’s Vancouver facility because the company recognizes that the quality of installation is as important as the quality of the doors they manufacture. “Dealers learn how to fabricate retractable screen doors to fit just about any conceivable door opening. Once they have demonstrated proficiency, they are taken to the homes of local customers to measure, fabricate, and install a half dozen screens under the close supervision of our staff.

“This hands-on training program not only ensures that our dealers are in a position to start selling and installing the minute they return home, it ensures that their customers will be impressed with the high quality of the work that accompanies its installation,” he says.

The retractable screen doors solve a problem faced by many homeowners who have always sought ways to have screens on inward and outward opening doors and sliding glass doors, where conventional screens cannot be used. Retractable screen doors can be adapted to single swing-in, single swing-out and double french doors as well as on sliding glass patio doors.

Individuals interested in learning more about the industry can contact Mel at (866) 874-3007 or visit the company’s web site (www.wizardindustries.com).

Vancouver, BC (PRWEB via PR Web Direct) January 27, 2022 -- CanAlaska Ventures Ltd "CanAlaska" www.canalaska.com (TSX Venture: CVV – OTCBB: CVVLF)

Dear Shareholders,
Our President and Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Peter Dasler is in New Zealand consulting with the financial sector and government authorities to determine the best course of action for CanAlaska’s gold properties in that region. These assets were the Company’s principal assets until we began our move to the Athabasca Basin last year. Mr. Dasler’s work is part of our strategic move to concentrate our focus on uranium exploration.

Since September 2004, our Company has assembled a significant land position and a competent and proven technical team. There has been a considerable amount of research done in the past on the prospective ground that our Company has acquired and assessment reports are being compiled and the data will be available over the next few months. Most of this exploration dates back to the 70’s and 80’s and has followed the classical graphite conductor model. We are considering other targets as well, in the Basin and in the basement.

Specifically our strategy will follow a three-pronged approach:
• In the East of the Basin we will explore for deposits at, and below, the unconformity, similar to Cigar Lake and McArthur River, but also like the Millenium deposit, which is deeper in the basement.

• In the West of the Basin we will explore an area that has seen very little or no exploration, but has the right geological environment to produce large unconformity uranium deposits.

• In the East we will explore for shear-hosted deposits similar to Eagle Point and other basement hosted unconformity-style deposits, in an area where many uranium showings were found in the late 70’s, but with little subsequent exploration.

In all three areas airborne and ground geophysics will be combined with summer prospecting and geochemistry to define the best targets for drilling to start in the winter 2005-2006. We have made a significant commitment to “Megatem” surveys that will be conducted by Fugro Airborne Surveys. These aerial surveys will be able to examine to depths of as much as 1,000 metres versus the historic capabilities of about 200 metres in the late 1970s.

Armed with a solid treasury and considerable prospective targets we believe that our research will attract attention from both junior exploration and producers companies. Uranium Facts include:

•Price rising steadily from under $8 per pound in the late 1990's to over $20 a pound.

•Saskatchewan produces approximately one-third of the world's Uranium mine output.

•Athabasca Basin, accounts for approximately 32% of the world’s uranium supply.

The CanAlaska Ventures Uranium Group Update depicting our land position in mid January 2005, including claims that have been recorded and land for which approval is pending can be viewed at: http://www.canalaska.com/i/pdf/CVVUraniumJanuary2005.pdf. Seldom does an opportunity present itself where the market demand and supply parameters coupled with technological improvements allow for research on such a considerable scale in the areas already proven too have some of the world’s most promising uranium deposits. Our geological team is well equipped to take best advantage of these opportunities and we look forward to reporting on our progress over the next few months.

According to Harry Barr, Chairman of CanAlaska Ventures Ltd. "We are well on our way to achieving our objective, which is simply to control one of the largest uranium exploration portfolios in the Athabasca Basin. We are very pleased to have Dr. Karl Schimann, P. Geo., as Manager of our Uranium Exploration Team”.

Dr. Schimann holds a Ph.D. from the University of Alberta and has worked extensively in the Uranium industry. Dr. Schimann worked for 20 years with COGEMA, commencing in 1977, both in Uranium and gold exploration. His profile includes more than 10 years of his employment was directly involved in Uranium exploration and mine geology in the Athabasca Basin, in particular Dr. Schimann was the Project Manager at the Cigar Lake Uranium Mine, from discovery and throughout the exploration phase. He was also the Senior Mine Geologist, responsible for the Geological Control Department at the McClean Lake Uranium Mine. Dr. Schimann was COGEMA's District Geologist for the Canadian Cordillera and Head of COGEMA's Saudi Arabia exploration office. Dr. Schimann brings extensive geological and mine evaluation skills to the Company, which will further complement CanAlaska's existing exploration team. CanAlaska's Chairman, Harry Barr notes "Dr. Schimann's wealth of experience inUranium exploration will be invaluable to the Company as it positions itself as one of the larger exploration landholders in the eastern Athabasca basin of Saskatchewan. We also are very pleased to have Mr. Jim Kermeen, P.Eng., Manager of Joint Venture Development. Mr. Kermeen brings some 45 years experience in mineral exploration, and 17 years of direct uranium exploration in the Athabasca basin and surrounding areas. Mr. Kermeen's experience of the mineral industry coupled with his past direct exploration knowledge of the Athabasca area is expected to be of great assistance to the Company. We are also examining acquisitions in the United States and this effort is being led by Mr. Jack Moore who brings some thirty-five (35) years of experience with Union Carbide”.

Yours truly,
Dr. Karl Schimann, P. Geo.

Compensation.BLR.com Reports Big Changes in Employee Benefits Landscape: Domestic Partnerships Benefits Rising, Healthcare Deductibles Increasing

Business & Legal Reports surveyed over 3,000 U.S. employers on employee benefit practices in late 2004; from health care and paid-time off programs to leaves of absence. Domestic partnership benefits are more common. Employee healthcare deductibles are rising. Health Savings Accounts (HSAs) are more popular. Sign-on bonuses are gone.

Old Saybrook, CT (PRWEB) January 26, 2022 -- Big changes are afoot in the benefits world. Employee healthcare deductibles are rising. Domestic partnership benefits are more common. And do you remember those sign-on bonuses to new employees? They’re gone.

Compensation.BLR.com, where compensation professionals go for reliable compensation data, conducted its annual Survey of Employee Benefits in late 2004.

“There are a number of startling changes in this year’s results,” commented Susan Schoenfeld, BLR’s senior compensation editor. “One of the most interesting is the increase of the number of companies offering domestic partnership benefits — only 13% of employers offered such benefits in 2003; in 2005 this figure increases to 19% for exempt employees,” she added. Domestic partnership benefits are offered to attract talent, for fairness, and local law. Healthcare insurance and leave benefits are most commonly offered.

Healthcare Deductibles Increasing
Schoenfeld pointed out the newest healthcare cost management strategy: “Employers are starting to combine health deductibles with Health Savings Accounts to reduce healthcare costs.” Employers with an employee deductible of more than $1,000 increased from 18% in 2004 to 27% in 2005, as employers hope employees will take more responsibility for their own healthcare, make fewer doctor visits, and help monitor costs. HSAs help employees manage these increased deductibles through a tax-exempt trust or custodial account.

Kiss that Porsche Goodbye
Remember those Porsches given away to lure new IT hires during the dot-com days? Compensation.BLR.com’s 2005 Survey of Employee Benefits shows that sign-on bonuses to new IT employees have run out of gas — companies offering them declined from 15% in 2003 to 3% in 2005. The drop comes as IT jobs have been outsourced to other countries and the market has softened. Sign-on bonuses for other job categories have also disappeared.

Spiralock Fasteners Make Descent to Saturn’s Largest Moon

Alternative industrial fastener design lends fail-safe fastening performance to the Huygens probe in its descent to the surface of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon.

(PRWEB) January 25, 2022 -- After a seven-year, two billion mile journey strapped to the side of the Cassini orbiter, the Huygens probe decelerated 12,000 mph in less than two minutes, before parachuting to the frozen surface of Titan, Saturn’s largest moon, on Jan. 14th this year where it was to measure wind, pressure, temperature, and electromagnetic fields as well as take photos of the surface.

For fail-safe atmospheric measurement of both Saturn from the Cassini orbiter and of Titan from the Huygens probe, several hundred bolt fasteners have had to keep vacuum-tight sealed cavities with no thread loosening or stripping, despite shock, vibration, and temperature extremes including rocket launch, atmospheric re-entry, and the sub-zero chill of space.

Although your product may not travel the same distance as the Cassini-Huygens spacecraft in its exploration of Saturn and its moons, it must function in your marketplace with minimal failure, since your brand’s reputation and future sales depend on its reliability. Yet your product’s underlying reliability depends on how well it is physically held together by fasteners – such as nuts and bolts - which may loosen or fail under shock, vibration, or extreme temperature even if it’s not hurtling through space.

Though some earthbound manufacturers resort to adhesives, deformed threads, nylon rings, prevailing torque nuts, and other traditional means of preventing joint loosening, these methods simply don’t measure up in high load, shock, and vibration environments experienced by an industrial fastener, particularly when resistance to thermal expansion and contraction is also necessary.

“To survive the vibration and high temperatures of launch, we required the most reliable locking engagement thread,” said Dan Harpold, a NASA scientist who worked on the project. “Screws had to remain tight without opportunity for re-tightening. With conventional threading, however, screws loosened up and backed out under testing.”

In an effort to satisfy NASA’s stringent reliability requirements on the Cassini orbiter and the European Space Agency’s on the Huygens probe, an alternative thread form designed to address the problems associated with traditional fasteners was used.

With no ability to tighten or replace loose or stripped fasteners after launch, the chosen thread form, by Madison Heights, Mich.-based Spiralock Corp., would have to hold until mission completion. What makes the Spiralock thread form unique is a 30º “wedge” ramp cut at the root of the female thread. Under clamp load, the crests of the threads on any standard male bolt are drawn tightly against the wedge ramp. This not only eliminates sideways motion that causes vibrational loosening but also distributes the threaded joint’s load throughout all engaged threads, a claim supported by a research study conducted by the MIT.

In other studies, the Spiralock thread form’s load percentage on the first engaged thread was significantly lower than standard thread forms, which further reduces possible bolt failure. The thread form also allows for thermal expansion and contraction without slippage.

NASA conducted a number of tests including a series of about twelve high-temperature “bake outs,” where screws and their matching internal thread forms were heated from room temperature to 300° C to simulate temperature-induced thread loosening. According to Harpold, the fasteners held up.

“The Spiralock thread form retained a tight seal at 300° C,” says Harpold. “Once torqued down properly, the screws stayed put in the threads, which helped us meet our flight schedule. To date, not one has come loose that I’m aware of.”

Engineer-to-Order ERP Leader Encompix Creates People Focus vs. Installation Process

According to Chuck Stewart, Executive VP, with Cincinnati-based ETO ERP leader Encompix, “A successful business system implementation takes more than computer hardware and software installation. It takes people.”

(PRWEB) January 25, 2022 -- According to Chuck Stewart, Executive VP, with Cincinnati-based ETO ERP leader Encompix, “A successful business system implementation takes more than computer hardware and software installation. It takes people.”

Stewart also noted, “The people of Encompix share a background of experience working with midsize manufacturers of capital equipment.” Thomas R. Cutler, spokesperson for the ETO Institute (www.etoinstitute.org) said, “Too often business system neglect to help ETO manufacturers run their business, and instead run them out of business. After careful industry investigation we discover no ETO ERP firm had the depth of experience as Encompix employees, with an average of over 16 years experience in manufacturing.” The first step is for manufacturers to understand that they are indeed ETO and there are materials on the Encompix site as well as at the ETO Institute site that will allow manufacturers to understand the nuances and specific issues facing Engineer-to-Order companies.

Encompix (www.encompix.com) has filled the manufacturing software requirements of Engineer-to-Order companies since 1992. The company name reflects our commitment to developing business application solutions that encompass the complex areas of project-based and job-based manufacturing.

Encompix provides ETO manufacturers with a competitive advantage by improving bottom line results.

Revolutionary Jetpod Aircraft Design Advances

The Jetpod aircab, light twin-jet engined, Very Quiet Short Take-Off and Landing (VQSTOL) inner-city passenger aircraft makes positive headway in its design.

London, United Kingdom (PRWEB) January 24, 2022 --

Design update:
1. The Jetpod operating principle of using a through-wing vertical thrust component, along with its unique wing-shape, have been confirmed by City University in London. City have confirmed that the aircraft can take-off or land in a distance of less than 125 metres (410 feet). Also, that the unique wing shape is well suited to low-high speed flight. The Jetpod can cruise at 300 kts (350 mph). The Jetpod halves conventional jet noise. The Jetpod passing overhead at just 300 feet will not be heard over and above normal street traffic.

The Jetpod civil airtaxi and personal jet versions have been designed to fly fast and quietly into the heart of major cities. The Jetpod will use very short STOL landing strips that are one tenth of the size of a conventional runway. The Jetpod in any case does not require a runway and can land on grass or dirt strips.

2. Anhedral has been added to the inboard delta to improve thrust-line asymmetry and to physically isolate the engines. This anhedral also compliments the shape of the high cabin ceiling and affords structural integrity. A dorsal Kevlar wing-spline will also be added.

3. Streamlining has been added to the nose along with two forward pilot doors.

4. The operating efficiency of the aircraft has impressed the aerospace design intranet of talent currently working on the Jetpod. Thus far, the increased performance we have designed into the Jetpod means that two extra jump seats can be added (if required). The aircraft can now carry up to seven (7) fare-paying passengers in a taxi-commuter role, and at the same time, the installed thrust reduced to 2,400 lbs on each of the two engines, thereby reducing cost and improving fuel-burn.

Marketing update:
The Jetpod has received unprecedented publicity since a first Press Release was made with PR Web in early November 2004. This had a knock-on effect when we received a staggering 45 million website hits in just three days. We also carried out 27 over-the-phone radio interviews during this period, including the BBC World Service and with stations all over the world. We have appeared in over 75 magazines, several newspaper broadsheets and in over 1000 websites. Overall, the Jetpod is a name that is fast becoming synonymous with inner-city air travel.

Situation update:
Avcen is still concentrating on getting the Proof of Concept aircraft into the air as soon as possible, approximately 16 months from now. We have been approached by many potential buyers and people wanting to invest. We are not accepting deposits for the aircraft and we are not accepting investment from small-stake investors. Some potential larger-stake investors have offered us reasonably large amounts of capital but we felt that their business interests were not consistent with ours. We are still holding out for a "single" investor that may of may not be associated with aerospace. This single investor might be a private individual, a consortium, a Government, or an aerospace company. Avcen does not need investment to get to the POC flight trials, but such early investor interest would certainly accelerate this process. After the POC is completed, we know that we can raise considerable funds to take the aircraft into production. Ideally, we are keen to talk to a "partner" investor in a country interested in hosting the manufacture of as much as 80% of the Jetpod. We are particularly interested in the Gulf region, e.g. UAE. The aircraft design office will remain in Europe and the aircraft will be finished in Europe. The conceptual innovator and creator of the Jetpod is Mike Dacre and interested investors should email him at e-mail protected from spam bots.

Concrete Paver Sales Rise in 2003 for the Fifth Year in Row

The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute(ICPI) announces the release of an annual study that confirms continued growth of concrete pavers in North America for 2003.

Washington, D.C. (PRWEB) January 24, 2022 -- The Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute(ICPI) announces the release of an annual study that confirms continued growth of concrete pavers in North America for 2003. The survey estimated total sales for North America at 615 million sf (57.1 million m2). This is divided into approximately 530 million sf (49.2 million m2) for the U.S. and 85 million sf (7.9 million m2) for Canada. Comparing results from a similar survey last year by ICPI, the amount sold represents an 8.8% increase from 2002 to 2003.

“This growth shows the continued strength of the segmental concrete pavement market in North America…” said Steve Berry, ICPI Chairman, “especially in the residential and municipal markets.”

The 2003 residential market once again accounted for almost 75 percent of concrete paver sales. The second largest market was commercial at 18 percent, followed by municipal at 10.3 percent. The industrial/port/airport market accounted for the smallest portion, representing 0.1 percent of all paver sales.

North American cement consumption in 2003 was 1,552,947 tons (1,411,770 metric tonnes), compared to 1,421,663 tons (1,292,421 metric tonnes) in 2002. U.S. cement

consumption accounted for 1,338,312 tons (1,216,647 metric tonnes), while Canadian consumption was 214,635 tons (195,123 metric tonnes).
Industry Insights, a nationally recognized market research firm, conducted this survey for ICPI. The survey report is available from the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Institute (ICPI). It can be ordered at www.icpi.org or by contacting ICPI at tel: 202-712-9036; fax: 202-408-0285; e-mail: e-mail protected from spam bots.

ICPI is a trade association whose mission is to increase the use of segmental concrete pavement systems in North America. Applications for “pavers” include driveways, patios, plazas, walkways, roofs, airports, streets, ports, and stadiums. ICPI members include producers, contractors, design professionals and consultants. ICPI promotes the highest product standards through ICPI product certification and installation standards through ICPI contractor certification. ICPI publishes the Interlocking Concrete Pavement Magazine, along with marketing and technical resources for design professionals, contractors, and homeowners.

The Organic and Natural Enterprise Group (ONE Group), Creators of the World’s First Certified Organic Skin Care and Cosmetic Line, Begin Worldwide Distribution

The Miessence™ product range and MivitalityTM probiotic bear the organic seal of approval by Australia’s leading certifying body, the Australian Certified Organic (ACO), a division of the Biological Farmers of Australia Co-op Limited. The ACO sets and maintains stringent quality standards that are internationally recognized as either compliant with or exceeding all international requirements. The USDA’s National Organic Program (NOP) has also issued its organic certification to ONE Group’s qualifying productsC

Queensland, Australia (PRWEB) January 1, 2022 -- ONE Group Founding Directors Narelle Chenery, John Hunter and Alf Orpen speak out on the issue of certified organics. “Education is the key to empowering consumers to see through the ‘green-wash’ of slick product marketing to recognize products for what they really are. Misleading labels and clever advertising relating to organic content often mask the use of potentially toxic ingredients, which seriously undermines the integrity of the organic claim,” Narelle reports. “We are committed to providing only certified organic products…” adds John Hunter. Alf Orpen concludes, “It is a common cry of many scientists and economists that within the next 20 years we must implement a strategy to create an ecologically sustainable world, and business is the most powerful vehicle to expedite that outcome.”

The organic industry has achieved compounded growth of 23% per year for seven consecutive years, while the natural and organic cosmetic sector grew by a massive 39% in 2001 alone. ONE Group leads the world in skin care by successfully developing the Miessence and Mivitality range; the world’s first and currently only fully certified organic probiotic, skin and body care products. Market research has shown that consumer demand for organics is growing rapidly worldwide. ONE Group, through its cutting-edge research and development, intends to progressively release dynamic, healthy, first-to-market innovations in the organic sector. Consumer sales of organic products in the US reached US$5.6 billion in 2000, a rise of 19% from 1999. If organics sustains this annual growth (and there is no indication it will not as sales in 2001 reached US$9.4 billion) the organic segment will be worth between US$13 – US$18 billion by 2005.

Committed to a vision of being an outstanding enterprise of inspiration, conviction and integrity that is a force for change towards ethical and ecological business practices throughout the world, ONE Group plans to capture a significant share of the booming organic market over the next 3 years.
