Adam Bruns Featured Speaker at Appalachian Basin Real Estate Conference

Appalachian Basin is becoming a secondary petrochemical hub for the country.

The conference will create greater awareness of the appeal of the Appalachian Basin as a petrochemical hub.”

— Joe Barone, President & Founder, Shale Directories

PENN VALLEY, PA, US, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Appalachian Basin has been producing prodigious volumes of natural gas and natural gas liquids for roughly 15 years and 10 years, respectively.
Increasingly, the basin, due to the Marcellus and Utica Shale plays, is being eyed as the logical location for gas and liquids users to establish a presence.
The Second Annual Appalachian Basin Real Estate Conference will bring together industry experts to inform attendees on what the Basin, and particularly the Ohio River Corridor, offers to potential and established companies looking to grow.

The one-day conference is slated for March 25, at Oglebay Resort, in Wheeling, West Virginia. "The conference will create greater awareness of the appeal of the Appalachian Basin as a petrochemical hub," stated Joe Barone, President and Founder, Shale Directories.

Numerous government and industry experts recognize the U.S. no longer can solely depend on the Gulf Coast region to host the multi-billion-dollar domestic petrochemicals industry.

The constant threat of hurricanes shutting down Gulf production, coastal refineries and petrochemical complexes, and a surge in plastic demand (a positive reaction to the COVID-19 pandemic) makes the Basin a logical place to establish/expand operations.

And big-deal activity already is underway or has been announced. Royal Dutch Shell was a first mover in constructing a $6 billion ethane cracker project in Western Pennsylvania, to take advantage of the region’s abundant, inexpensive NGL, and the relatively closeness of users of the complex’s plastics pellets product.

Thailand-based PTT is expected to finally announce later this year it will build a second multi-billion-dollar cracker, in southeast Ohio along the Ohio River.
West Virginia Methanol announced plans to build a $350 million methanol plant in Pleasants County, West Virginia.

And KeyState Natural Gas Synthesis has announced plans to build a $400 million plant to convert natural gas into hydrogen, ammonia and urea for transportation, medical and industrial uses. The complex, to be located in Clinton County, Pennsylvania, also will capture and sequester carbon dioxide onsite.

One expert who will be the featured speaker at the Basin conference is Adam Bruns, managing editor since 2002 at Site Selection magazine.
Bruns, who has tracked development literally worldwide, keeps a close eye on the Ohio River Corridor, annually the point person for Site Selection’s Ohio River Corridor special report.

“We look at development in every county along the Ohio, with projects having to meet at least one of three criteria: at least a $1 million project cost, creating at least 20 jobs, or building at least 20,000 square feet of space,” Bruns said. In 2020, the Louisville, Kentucky region took the top spot.
“The Appalachian Basin is becoming a major petrochemical hub,” Bruns said. “We’ve documented significant development and expect more in coming years.”

Bruns said the Ohio River Corridor has a number of positives going for it, including affordable/available energy, with large utility companies proficient as economic development partners.

“The region also has legacy infrastructure in place,” Bruns added. “Probably the number one question employers ask about deals with talent cultivation and the availability of workforce development.”

Bruns sees workforce training as crucial to securing development anywhere, certainly along the Ohio River.

“Certainly, community colleges and companies are partnering to make sure training is available, while families are discovering how important certificates can be so important (for securing a job) – certainly, logistics certificates are a big deal now.”

Along those lines, an Appalachian Basin Real Estate Conference expert panel, moderated by Pat Ford, Business Development Director for The Frontier Group of Companies, will discuss the challenge of securing a ready workforce for new companies coming to the region.

Bruns said it has been his experience the governmental bodies along the corridor are prepared “to do anything they can to get a dormant site going again.”

CHILDREN ONLINE MORE BECAUSE OF COVID? DIGITAL SUPERVISION REQUIRED

Theory of Digital Supervision for online child protection

Charlene Doak-Gebauer and newest release “The Internet: Are Children In Charge?” – Theory of Digital Supervision for online child protection.

Adults need to learn more about Digital Supervision for online child protection

We cannot continue to parent using only traditional methods. This is the digital age and we have to catch up to digital device use.”

— Charlene Doak-Gebauer

LONDON, ONTARIO, CANADA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Children are online more throughout the world because of COVID, isolation, and online learning. Feelings of loneliness, isolation, and worry about the pandemic can be overwhelming for them. Adults can be worried as well. What to do to ensure our children are safe online, have fewer worrisome thoughts, and guidance from adults at this time?

Charlene Doak-Gebauer advises all adults to embrace her user-friendly Theory of Digital Supervision for the online protection of all children. She explains, "Digital Supervision is divided into three parts – awareness – the reality of online activities involving children; method – user friendly methods to supervise children as they use digital devices (computer, laptop, iPad, gaming system, cellphone); and hope – we can do this, and we must".

Children can be addicted to digital devices, but also pornography. So many people are concerned their children are addicted to gaming, but addictions to pornography are happening and so few realize it. With the freedom of information online, this is becoming a great concern. Doak-Gebauer explains, too often, parents are busy with their work and other commitments, they are using a screen as a babysitter. "We cannot continue to parent using only traditional methods. This is the digital age and we have to catch up to digital device use."

How many times have we heard "my kids know more than I do."? This statement is a good indicator that children are in charge of the Internet in their homes. Doak-Gebauer says Digital Supervision must be applied to ensure parents and allied professionals are in charge of the Internet. "I have presented my Theory to different countries. In every country audiences have said it is a problem. We are so pleased you are doing this. Will you please come back to speak again?".

Charlene gives presentations virtually at this time on her own. She is also Founder and Chair of the AICET Council (Anti Internet Child Exploitation Team) and arranges full conferences using her team of experts as well. At the end of a full conference, attendees are eligible for a Certificate of Completion for Digital Supervision Training. This Certificate provides parents and professionals validation for pursuing online protection of children in an event a person might be subjected to an investigation related to negligence for online child protection. "We have had police officers, Crime Stoppers, Victim Services and other professionals attend our conferences, some twice, in order to obtain our Certificate of Completion."

She also encourages everyone to read her book for a comprehensive definition of her Theory of Digital Supervision. A portion of the proceeds goes toward therapy for children who have been targeted by online predation. She says predators have always been thought of as unknowns. This is not the case with the Internet involved. Family members must be viewed as possible predators, however, the growing group, and the most foreboding, is the peer-to-peer victimizer group. "Our children are being victimized by peers. Without Digital Supervision, how are parents going to know if their child is a bully, victim, depressed, or worse yet, planning suicide?". Children communicate their feelings online and are bringing each other up. Pornography is their sex education. We wonder why this generation of children and young adults are objectifying humanity so much? Doak-Gebauer warns things will get worse as children age.

"Too much ownership is being given to children for their decisions online. Adults have difficulty deciding if communications are valid. Imagine a young, seven, eight, nine, seventeen year old trying to determine what to do online? They do not have the life experiences nor maturity to make such decisions."

Charlene's newest release, "The Internet: Are Children In Charge?" is available on Amazon, Chapters, Indigo, Barnes and Noble. She encourages everyone to come to the realization the importance of supervising children online, particularly during isolation and online learning. "Our children need us more now than they have in the history of the world. It is important to come to this realization."

CureMetrix AI-Based Triage Software for Mammography Receives ANVISA Approval in Brazil

cmTriage - ANVISA Approved and FDA-Cleared - Triage, Sort, Prioritize the mammography worklist

cmTriage – ANVISA Approved and FDA-Cleared – Triage, Sort, Prioritize the mammography worklist

cmTriage™ by CureMetrix® helps to triage and prioritize mammography workflow for radiologists.

Use of cmTriage demonstrates potential for significant improvement in mammography performance measures and workload reduction.”

— Alyssa Watanabe, MD, FACR, Chief Medical Officer, CureMetrix

LA JOLLA, CA, USA, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — CureMetrix, Inc., a global healthcare technology company that develops AI-driven software for radiology, is now approved by Brazil’s Agência Nacional de Vigilância Sanitária (ANVISA) for cmTriage™, its proprietary AI-based triage software for mammography. This ANVISA approval, registration 81464750075, allows CureMetrix to market cmTriage™ to radiology practices in Brazil.

cmTriage is a workflow optimization tool that uses AI to flag suspicious mammography cases. Rather than read mammograms on a first-in, first-out basis, cmTriage helps radiologists quickly customize, sort, and prioritize their mammography worklist based on cases that may need immediate attention.

cmTriage is also the first FDA-cleared AI-based triage solution for mammography in the U.S. Based on recent research, cmTriage helps to streamline the reading process, offering up to 40% faster reading of normal cases. In a recent study, it was demonstrated that radiologists can, using cmTriage at 93% sensitivity, experience a 63% workload reduction, with no missed cancers and a reduction or elimination false negatives.

Said Alyssa Watanabe, M.D., chief medical officer at CureMetrix, “Use of cmTriage demonstrates potential for significant improvement in mammography performance measures and workload reduction.”

After an unprecedented year that required many radiology practices to quickly pivot and accommodate COVID-19 restrictions, radiologists using cmTriage™ have the potential to quickly bounce back. Sorting and prioritizing their workloads will help them handle a backlog of routine scans, and more accurately diagnose patients who may have delayed mammograms because of the pandemic.

“Streamlining workloads doesn’t just save radiologists time,” said Navid Alipour, chief executive officer for CureMetrix. “Early signs of breast cancer are missed, on average, about 50 percent of time, according to the most recent data. Using an intelligent triage software allows radiologists to give focus where it’s needed, and find more breast cancer cases earlier, improving survival rates for patients worldwide. We are pleased to offer doctors in Brazil and their patients a tool that enhances radiologists’ ability to more accurately diagnose breast cancer and save more lives, and we are grateful to ANVISA for their timely review of cmTriage.”

Details on cmTriage ANVISA registration information can be found at: https://consultas.anvisa.gov.br/#/saude/25351643747202050/?cnpj=26263959000103

Ideagen Plc Half Year Trading Ahead of Last Year Despite COVID

Ideagen CEO, Ben Dorks

• Trading for six months to Oct 31, 20 delivered ARR growth of 20% & adjusted EBITDA growth of 25%
• David Hornsby to step down as Chairman

Ideagen PLC (LSE:AIM:IDEA)

We continue to execute our strategy, delivering growth both organically and through acquisitions, and have invested in the Group without compromising our disciplined approach to costs”

— Ben Dorks, CEO of Ideagen PLC

NOTTINGHAM, UNITED KINGDOM, January 26, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — A global supplier of regulatory and compliance solutions, Ideagen Plc, has today released another very positive set of half year results, recording ARR growth of 20% and adjusted EBITDA growth of 25%.

The ARR book (which is the contracted revenue to be delivered over the coming 12 months) has increased by 13% during the first six months to approximately £54.8m (April 2020: £48.7m), arising from both strong organic growth of approximately 7% (13% on an annualised basis) and 6% of acquired ARR from the acquisition of Qualsys in August 2020. ARR is what the Board considers to be the primary growth metric and driver for long term value for the Group.

Organic growth has come from increased business with existing customers and 270 new customer wins during the period.

These figures are a further indication that the Board’s strategy of growing the business organically and through the right acquisitions is delivering real value for the business.

CEO of Ideagen Plc, Ben Dorks, said: “I am pleased to report another excellent first half of Ideagen's financial year. We continue to execute our strategy, delivering growth both organically and through acquisitions, and have invested in the Group without compromising our disciplined approach to costs. Our business model has remained resilient throughout the pandemic, with growth being driven from a number of industries.

“Cash generation has been strong which, coupled with further growth in new SaaS recurring revenues and an increase in repeat business from our growing customer base, provides a strong platform for the second half. Given the size and longevity of the Regulatory and Compliance market and the Group's position as a leader in the space, the Board is optimistic about our continued growth prospects.”

Ideagen Plc has also made a very positive start to the second period of the financial year. The business raised almost £50m (£48.7m) in funds to finance its acquisition pipeline in December 2020 and later that month made its 20th and largest acquisition to date, with the purchase of Huddle for £28m.

As well as strengthening Ideagen’s offering of products for highly regulated and security conscious industries, Huddle brings with it an expected ARR of £10.5m.

Dorks said: “The acquisition of Huddle is our biggest ever and I am hugely excited by the opportunities it will provide us with. Bringing together Huddle and PleaseReview will result in a hugely compelling offering of secure document collaboration and compliance software that will meet the needs of the toughest regulatory environment. This means we will be extremely well placed to take advantage of the growth in regulatory requirements and the increased need for people to be able to work remotely, while maintaining the ability to collaborate on projects.”

The business has also announced that Chairman, David Hornsby, will retire in May 2021. David established the Ideagen Group in 2009 and was its CEO until 2018, when he was succeeded by Ben Dorks.

Dorks said: “I have worked closely with David for the last eight years and what he has helped Ideagen to achieve in that time is incredible. I look forward to working with the Board, the Executive team and everyone at Ideagen to build on the fantastic legacy Ideagen has and to continue to scale new heights as a business.”

The role of Chairman will become a non-exec role and will be taken on by Richard Longdon, Ideagen’s most senior non-exec director and a former executive of Aveva Group Plc. During his 33 years at Aveva he steered the business from a £7m management buyout to a value of £1.4bn when he retired in 2016.

The executive duties that were previously part of the Chairman’s role will be handled by Ben Dorks and Emma Hayes, Ideagen’s CFO, who has 10 years’ experience in corporate finance with Deloitte and brings significant M&A expertise to the Group.

David Bell Examines Branding Opportunities for 2021

David Bell

David Bell

NEW YORK, NY, UNITED STATES, January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — David Bell has worked with many different companies over the years to help expand their branding and marketing reach. And during the year 2021, with the Coronavirus and other issues still so prevalent, David Bell, former Professor of Wharton School of Business, recently examined a handful of different branding possibilities that can transform your company during this strange time.

David Bell Examines a Few Ways to Expand Your Brand
In 2021, your company will have a lot of time to rethink its brand and try to make it more on-point and adaptable. In particular, David Bell believes that logo adaptability will be one of the most significant possibilities for your company this year. This term is one David Bell utilizes to discuss the different ways you can change up your logo to integrate it on many platforms.

First of all, David Bell states that it is important not to change your logo too much. The logo should be uniform with other designs but can be tweaked based on size, complexity, and colors utilized. For instance, David Bell suggests using brighter colors on online platforms to make your logo stand out and make your brand more adaptable to this unique environment and market situation.

And during this time of great upheavals, David Bell also suggests stripping back a little and simplifying your brand. As you expand your business and attempt to make it more branching, there's a possibility that you've complicated your branding. This mistake is common, as many companies change their logo, tweak their marketing focus, or even adjust their product offerings.

However, this complexity can confuse your old customers and drive new ones away by muddying the waters on your branding purpose. David Bell suggests taking a step back this year and thinking about what message you want to send. Do you feel like your branding is on-point, or are there too many other messages being sent? David Bell suggests peeling back all but one or two messages this year.

And rethink your branding approach by fully understanding your market. For instance, David Bell sees many nostalgia-based companies creating branding opportunities that tap into memories of the past. Nostalgia is a powerful market force – think of those vinyl figures of pop culture icons and how they fly off the shelves and keep many niche shops in business around the nation.

In essence, you want to create a customer-driven branding experience that focuses on the wants and needs of those who buy from you. David Bell suggests holding various types of tests and surveys with your customers, examining different elements of their lives. You can then adjust your campaigns to meet their needs, David Bell says, allowing you to succeed in this field.

Compass Properties Installs Bipolar Ionization System to Prevent Spread of COVID 19 in its Office Buildings

Park West II, needlepoint bipolar ionization, prevent COVID 19,  air filtration, Compass Properties

Park West II, located in Madison’s University Research Park, is one of the Compass Properties buildings where the NPBI system was installed.

NPBI produces ions that attach to particles (e.g. COVID 19) and makes them easier to filter and destroy

Needlepoint bipolar ionization is hands down the most impactful way we can actively target airborne contaminants and kill them..”

— Todd Greenwald, Vice President

MADISON , WI , UNITED STATES , January 25, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Compass Properties, a Madison-based commercial real estate management and development company, recently installed a state-of-the-art, needlepoint bipolar ionization (NPBI®) system in several of its area office buildings to help protect tenants, employees, and visitors from contracting the COVID-19 virus.

“Indoor air quality has become even more critical as it impacts the health, comfort, well-being, and productivity of the building’s occupants,” said Todd Greenwald, Compass Properties Vice President. “Needlepoint bipolar ionization is hands down the most impactful way we can actively target airborne contaminants and kill them. Though our primary motivation was to fight airborne COVID-19, NPBI also offers a robust solution to increase air ventilation efficiency and kill harmful airborne particles such as bacteria, allergens and other pathogens.”

The patented NPBI® system was created by Global Plasma Solutions (GPS), which recently released testing results that show a 99.4% reduction rate on a SARS-CoV-2 (COVID-19) surface strain within 30 minutes. NPBI produces positive and negative ions that attach to particles and pathogens, such as the coronavirus, making them easier to filter and destroy. It also combats dust, pollen, and mold spores. “For any kind of facility from commercial buildings to aircrafts, delivering the cleanest, safest indoor air environment will only become increasingly more important,” said GPS Founder and Chief Technology Officer, Charles Waddell. “And our ozone-free technology is one of the most sophisticated products on the market.”

The NPBI systems used by Compass Properties were installed by Windsor, Wisconsin-based North American Mechanical this December in buildings at 4600 American Parkway, 5133 W. Terrace Drive, 406 Science Drive and 440 Science Drive in Madison. Company officials say the system will be installed in its CitySquare Office Center (Wausau) next, with other buildings following in 2021.

Experts say bipolar ionization used in large-scale ventilation systems worldwide could be a secret weapon in the war against COVID-19. Hospitals including Johns Hopkins, Children’s Hospital Boston and the University of Maryland Medical Center have embraced the technology. “Bipolar ionization has been used in healthcare for many years for many applications,” said Tony Abate, chief technical officer at AtmosAir Solutions. “We believe bipolar ion systems will become a standard in these critical environments to protect patients and staff.”

Greenwald said installation of the NPBI systems is among the many safety measures the company has put in place recently. He said buildings managed by Compass Properties are regularly scheduled for extensive deep cleaning and disinfection, with new procedures in place to increase frequency of cleaning in high-density and high touch areas. Compass Properties has also taken additional measures to ensure high indoor air quality in its buildings, including comprehensive HVAC preventative maintenance, upgraded air filters, and increased outside air intake to dilute the potency of indoor germs.

Greenwald said despite all the safety measures, tenants, employees, and visitors are still required to wear masks and socially distance. “Our new NPBI system is proven to deliver safe and clean indoor air, but it can’t stop direct transmission of the virus between two or more people indoors. Preventing the spread of COVID in the workplace requires that everyone does their part — wear a mask, socially distance and practice good personal hygiene.”
