Venice, CA (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- Venice and Camarillo, California based clean energy startup Nitro-Turbodyne, Inc. announced that it has signed an agreement with GSM Energy Solutions of Calgary, Alberta, Canada to distribute next generation power generators throughout Canada and the Bakken Oil Fields in the northern portions of the United States. Nitro-Turbodyne will supply an initial order to GSM of 150 units for remote instrumentation power generation, labeled the RIPGU. Leveraging new technology to produce power leveraging renewable Liquid Nitrogen (LN2), each unit provides maintenance-free electrical power for Supervisory Control and Data Acquisition (SCADA) and telemetry systems for natural gas and oil wells.
"These units are a significant advance in remote power generation with extremely long reliability and zero carbon emissions," stated Miles Molstad, Director for Calgary-based GSM Energy Solutions, "These products provide significant cost savings and solve multiple issues for remote oil field power generation."
The contract, valued at over $1m Canadian over 2 years, is the first Canadian contract received by Nitro-Turbodyne for its revolutionary turbine-powered electrical generator. The unit leverages patented Micro Flash-Expansion Turbine (MFET) technology to produce clean, renewable and maintenance-free power in any environment and any weather.
"We successfully demonstrated the RIPGU to over 80 companies at the Global Petroleum Show in Calgary this past June," stated Ed De Reyes, the Chief Technology Officer for Nitro-Turbodyne. "We are very pleased to be working with GSM to introduce our units to the Canadian oil industry. GSM Energy Solutions is the perfect partner to provide this technology throughout the region."
De Reyes went on to explain that that gas and oil well operators were searching for alternatives to solar and wind power production - especially in harsh Arctic environments - where the extremes of weather prevent the widespread use of those technologies. Several well operators had turned to thermoelectric generators ("TEGs"); however because TEGs use combustible gas and open flames to produce electricity, they tended to be unreliable and dangerous should a gas well develop a leak.
The RIPGU's are designed to solve several problems for oil well operators including reliability, costs and safety. With only 1 moving part the unit's are designed to run continuously for 20 years. Additionally, the units work without combustion providing safety for uses near oil production facilities. Since December, Nitro-Turbodyne has booked over $2 million in orders for the years 2013 and 2014.
LOS ANGELES, CALI. (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- In response to Newsweek magazines complete transition to an all-digital publication, Cory Allen Contemporary Art (CACA) announces that Los Angeles artists Ryan McIntosh and XVALA will continue the print and subscription of Newsweek for 2013.
"Death of Print: The Last Print Edition", a bimonthly print of 'Newsweek covers' capturing time-stamped events throughout 2013, was conceived by the two artists upon announcement from Newsweek editor Tina Brown of their decision to discontinue print media for their internationally acclaimed publication that had been in print since 1933.
"Newsweek removes themselves and their reported content from being 'written in stone'," said Cory Allen. "It's going forward in reverse. In the digital realm, Newsweek will have the luxury to manipulate their original content to better serve future ratings."
AIS Editions, located in the Brewery Arts Complex in Los Angeles and owned by McIntosh, will print and distribute a new issue of the 'Newsweek prints' on the 1st and 15th of every month. "Preservation of the printed medium for future generations is of vital importance," said McIntosh.
The 18" x 24" prints are individually handmade with selected content based on newsworthy topics that the artists feel are significant to publish; maintaining the thematic presence that Newsweek has attained with their past issues. The artists have gone as far as employing several members of the paparazzi and selected hackers to help acquire exclusive images and information to remain competitive with TIME, Wired, People, and other major magazines.
"People like information to be physical. They want to be smacked in the face by news," said XVALA. "I can't tell the difference between what's real or virtual. All news is just a picture you've never seen before."
Currently, the prints can only be purchased online; however, Cory Allen is working with several vendors and distributors to have the prints made available in local stores across the United States, alongside their competitor's issues. "We are aiming to make these prints easily accessible before this summer and I feel we are making progress," said Cory Allen.
The "Death of Print: The Last Print Edition" will be made available to the public at www.newsweekprints.com, where individuals may purchase individual issues or a full-year subscription.

New Stem Cell Biobank Partnership to Accelerate Drug Discovery
Coralville, IA (MMD Newswire) January 8, 2013 -- Cellular Engineering Technologies Inc. (CET), a stem cell biotech company, and the non-profit John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) announce a partnership to develop a private stem cell biobank. CET, a biomanufacturer of human stem cells, is collaborating with the JP2MRI to create over 5,000 patient and disease-specific stem cell lines and other human cell lines to advance drug discovery, offer personalized medicine, and biomanufacturing. These cell lines are derived from adult sources and do not include embryonic stem cells.
A stem cell biobank will help overcome the greatest obstacle to offering personalized medicine and will accelerate the search for effective treatments. It will do so by enabling drug testing on patient specific stem cells, in contrast to the currently used models involving animal testing and clinical trials that are vastly more expensive and time consuming. The biobank stem cell lines will serve as models to better predict the outcome of drug therapy in patients and dramatically advance research to bring new treatments to market sooner and at less cost. The need to create a stem cell biobank of human somatic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, and other critical human cell lines is underscored by some sobering statistics. The annual rate of FDA-approved drugs has declined while the research and development cost has significantly increased. The cost of bringing a drug to market is currently more than one billion dollars and takes over ten years. A new heart drug has a 20 percent chance of succeeding in a clinical trial and a new cancer drug has only an 8 percent chance of succeeding.
CET manufactures a variety of human somatic stem cells, induced pluripotent stem (IPS) cells, cancer cells, and specialized tissue culture media to grow and differentiate stem cells. CET has also introduced its contract manufacturing service to develop IPS cell lines for scientists. IPS cells are unique stem cells that are created by genetically reprogramming a patient's own cell into very primitive pluripotent stem cells that can differentiate into more than 200 specialized cells. Dr. Alan Moy, CEO and Co-Founder of CET said, "The collaboration with the JP2MRI will allow CET to provide scientists with the tools to accelerate drug discovery and advance personalized medicine."
The CET and JP2MRI partnership will eliminate the barriers that typically impact government and academic biobanks because stem cell donations will come directly from patients recruited from private practice doctors and private hospitals. Jay Kamath, CEO of the JP2MRI, commented, "The Institute has launched its Give Cures program that has created a network of doctors in several private clinics and hospitals around the country to recruit patients to procure tissue to create the stem cell lines. The program is currently recruiting patients with genetic diseases, cancer, and disorders like Alzheimer's and Parkinson's disease so that industry, government, and academia can be more productive in their drug discovery efforts."
Doctors and patients are invited to visit the JP2MRI website (www.jp2mri.org) and sign-up on the Clinical Provider Registry or Patient Registry. Everyone is invited to share the Give Cures flyer (www.givecures.org) so more people will know how they can advance the adult stem cell research mission of JP2MRI.
About Cellular Engineering Technologies, Inc.
CET is a stem cell biotech company co-founded by Dr. Alan Moy and whose mission is to fundamentally transform patient therapy by making drug discovery and the biomanufacturing process quicker, less expensive, more personalized, innovative, and regenerative through the use of human cells. CET's manufacturing facility is located in Coralville, IA.
About the John Paul II Medical Research Institute.
The John Paul II Medical Research Institute (JP2MRI) is a non-profit research institute whose mission is to advance ethical medical research and education with human somatic stem cells and induced pluripotent stem cells. The Institute's goal is to reduce the barriers of translating basic research into clinical research. This is accomplished by coordinating research activities between the Institute, academia, and industry to find treatment solutions for patients that could benefit from adult stem cell therapy. The Institute is located in Iowa City, IA.
January 9, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Our very own Miami based Chef Adrianne Calvo beat out some of the top chefs from around the country with her "Maximum Flavor" style of recipes, that only those of us who make the drive to her restaurant, are privileged to taste.
The Master Holiday Chef Challenge is a national chef competition that features 14 of the best chefs from major cities across the U.S. including major metropolises like New York City, Chicago, and San Francisco. The chefs competed against each other to create innovative meals by using varieties of Alouette Cheese, Chavrie Fresh Goat Cheese, and Ile de France Cheese. The chefs had the chance to win the ultimate title of Master Holiday Chef & a grand prize of $20,000- but they needed your vote to win. It was ChefAdrianne's signature style, spontaneous creativity, and unrestricted approach to food that set her apart from her competitors - Adrianne being the youngest of the 14 competitors and 1 of 2 females. "I am so happy to bring home the win. What an honor to even be put in this category with these incredible chefs," says Calvo. In addition to finding some delicious recipes to try, there were other random drawings for daily and weekly prizes including a grand prize trip to the winning chef's restaurant.
This was one of Chef Adrianne's busiest holiday seasons ever because of her other charitable endeavors. On December 11th, she returned from her yearly effort to bring comfort and joy to all the families battling childhood Cancer at St. Jude Children's Research Hospitals in Memphis, Tennessee via cooking a holiday feast, moreover, trying to win a $4,000 donation to one of her favorite charities The Hunger Project via Verizon's 4G4 Hunger campaign, where she was also chosen as one of four top culinary guru's in Miami.
December 20, 2012 (MMD Newswire) -- The recent release of Apple's iPhone 5 has led to a number of medium sized businesses adopting new mobile technologies. In response to the increased demand San-IT has expanded their staff to include several dedicated iPhone 5 support specialists.
Many businesses have found the increased functionality of the device a blessing and a curse. While the advanced features of the device lend new capabilities to business operations they also introduce confusion that leads to organizational inefficiency.
The specialists provide more than basic repair and diagnostic services for these devices. They also provide best practices and help to implement policies that minimize the chaos that can be introduced when businesses adopt radical new technologies.
With a well established clientele, San-IT was uniquely positioned to implement such a niche service offering. With years of experience delivering kind of IT support Stockford businesses demand, San-IT's clients were quick to recognize the need for the recommended addition to their core services.
Several organizations have opted to maintain at least a part-time presence of these new specialists. They also provide 24 hour support in the event that an iPhone 5 causes any distress to employees working the late shift.
Upcoming "iPhone 5 adoption" clinics are scheduled for businesses not currently utilizing San-IT's services. Two sessions will be held at a private location in Stockport on January 2nd, 2012. Businesses interested in taking advantage of this free clinic can register by contacting San-IT directly.
"This is the IT support Manchester and Stockport really need," said Adam Jones, who serves as a point of contact for one of San-IT's larger clients. "They don't always need full time IT support, but when new technologies come along they are hopeful that someone can help."
San-IT has provided similar clinics and workshops in the past. There are several scheduled throughout the early part of 2013, including several focused on the new technologies offered in Windows 8. "When things change in the world of IT businesses need to assess whether or not it is worth making the switch. Our goal with these clinics and workshops is to help them make an informed decision. There are no marketing pitches or promotions. Most of the businesses that participate don't even have the budget to hire us for regular maintenance. We just want to give something useful to the Manchester and Stockport communities."
Adam Jones can be contacted directly for more information.

Their lives along with those of future generations have changed with the construction of a water well in their communities. The following are the wells that have been completed and their locations:
Well # 1-Owerai Village in Kaberamaido, 59 households, 531 villagers

Providence, RI (MMD Newswire) December 28, 2012 -- TribalVision was recognized this week by Providence Business News (PBN) as one of the largest marketing firms (based on head count) in Rhode Island. With sixteen employees and growing within its short two year history, TribalVision is quickly building a name for itself in the Providence and Southern New England marketplace. Founded in 2010 by Chris Ciunci to meet a growing need in the business community for an objective, strategic marketing partner, TribalVision has emerged as a viable alternative to the existing commission-based advertising agency model.
As Ciunci states, "I am thrilled to know that what started as an idea to shake up the existing advertising model two short years ago has been validated by the numerous clients we are proud to work side by side with every day. Whether it's a well-known Rhode Island company with 1,000+ employees to a B2B jewelry manufacturer, to a weight loss company with ties to Harvard University, our interests-aligned fee-based model that emphasizes strategy before tactics has resonated and produced results across all industries."
TribalVision continues to attract new clients from a range of industries from software development to retail to medical logistics. The company's success comes from a new approach to marketing that emphasizes the creation of an objective strategic plan followed by the implementation of specific, metrics-driven tactics with razor sharp attention to detail. This new approach, coupled with a head down work ethic and client centric mindset, has helped catapult TribalVision into the position Providence Business News has recognized it for today.
As VP of Client Services Damien Cabral states, "Our job is to work as hard and as smart as we can to produce results for our clients. We are not the 'Big Idea' guys that most companies are expecting from a marketing firm. Rather, we are marketing strategists who are obsessed with helping companies go from Point A to Point B. If that involves great creative, then we will pull in that resource from our partner network. But oftentimes it involves so much more than good creative. It involves sound strategy that - while not sexy - is the key to increased profits and market share gains for our clients."
With its client list extending North of the Rhode Island border, TribalVision recently expanded its footprint to Cambridge, Massachusetts to cater to its MA/NH client base as well as attract young talent out of Boston-based feeder schools such as Harvard and M.I.T.
TribalVision is a marketing consulting firm whose mission is to help small to midsize businesses market smarter. As a marketing department for hire, TribalVision is a flexible, cost-effective alternative to the traditional marketing solutions available to the global business community. TribalVision's value-add includes strategy crafting, channel-mix optimization, tactics implementation, executive leadership services and brand building.

January 1, 2013 (MMD Newswire) -- Smartphone users who love to listen to music on their phones, but find that the sound quality leaves something to be desired, now have an innovative and economical solution to their problem. Degauss Labs of Sweden, manufacturers of a range of headphones and smartphone earphones, has just introduced SPKRS: sharp-sounding, cool-looking ear buds that work with most popular smartphones - and won't break the bank.
"With SPKRS, users can finally unlock their smartphone's full potential," says Nicolas Persson, Sales Manager at Degauss. "Our aim with SPKRS was to create ear buds with sound and performance quality second to none in this price range." SPKRS feature an improved acoustic design that makes music sound smoother. The new SPKRS driver units deliver a warm, detailed sound with a resonant and hard-kicking bass.
And in keeping with the demands of today's young consumers who want their gadgets to look great as well as work like a champ, the SPKRS ear buds come in a wide variety of what Persson describes as "clean, cool" colors. Currently users can choose from a rainbow of hues: red, yellow, blue, pink, purple, gray, white or black.
The SPKRS ear buds boast plenty of attention to detail, including a coated aluminum casing. The housing is coated with a special matte technique that makes it as clean looking as the rest of the earphone - a quality rarely found on metal-housed earphones.
The all-aluminum housing isn't just for looks; it absorbs vibrations and preserves the sound quality, Persson explains. "And it makes the SPKRS more durable," he adds.
SPKRS earphones allow users to easily take control of their smartphone. A one-button remote with a microphone provides instant access to play or pause music, and to answer or end calls. Via Google Play and the App Store, users can download apps that adjust the button's functions according to their needs.
SPKRS come with a Universal Plug (U-Plug) that allows them to work with most Apple iPhone, Android, and Nokia WP based devices. A flat cabled, non-twisting, strain-relief cord makes SPKRS as perfect for the gym as on the street. And in addition to durability, the SPKRS ear buds are built for comfort, to accommodate users who spend more time plugged-in than unplugged.
"We made SPKRS to be the perfect introduction to the performance of Degauss Labs earphones," says Persson. "We're constantly working to improve our products, and we think that this desire for continual improvement is reflected in SPKRS."
Early buzz from users is favorable, with many giving SPKRS high marks for both sound quality and design. "The bottom line," says Persson, "is that music just sounds better with SPKRS - and you could even say it looks better too. SPKRS give your smartphone more 'oomph,' more attitude." Or, to paraphrase a well loved hymn, "Amazing bass, how sweet the sound."
