Hiawatha, Iowa (PRWEB) October 08, 2014

MobileDemand today introduced the xTablet Flex 8, the third new xTablet of 2014 and the thinnest and lightest to date. The new xTablet Flex 8 is part of the expanding family of tablets by MobileDemand which now offers customers the widest variety of form factors and price points of enterprise grade tablets in the industry. Six variations of ruggedness, sealing, size, and weight now offer the right tablet for any given job. Running Windows 8.1 Professional or Windows 8.1 with Bing, this 8-inch device is setting a new standard for rugged, enterprise-ready tablets, with a price point starting at only $ 595. The xTablet Flex 8 is masterfully designed for applications in field service, field sales, utilities, retail, hospitality and healthcare, where ultra-mobile devices are essential.

Enterprise-Ready, Unique Features Set the xTablet Flex 8 Apart – The xTablet Flex 8 has many business features which set it apart from consumer-grade tablets as well as other rugged tablets. It has an Intel BayTrail-T Z3770 processor, Windows 8.1 (Pro optional), a 1280×800 display, 4GB RAM and 64GB system storage provide business level performance in a lightweight (1.7 lb.), 8-inch form factor. Equipped with USB 3.0 and USB 2.0 ports, and Bluetooth 4.0, directly connect to peripherals such as a barcode scanner or receipt printer without requiring adapters. Finally, the xTablet Flex 8 is equipped with WiFi 802.11a/b/g/n for internet access and can utilize WWAN via internet sharing and Mobile Hotspot (MiFi) options.

Designed for Front Line Workers – When selecting a specific tablet to deploy to field employees, it’s vital to take in to consideration the environment in which the tablets will be installed and how often the users will be handing the device. The xTablet Flex 8 is not only a powerful tablet itself, but comes standard with many of the accessories pre-installed for fast deployment and easy carrying. Included with the tablet is a ruggedized case, back hand strap, briefcase handle, stylus and scratch-proof screen protector. Typically for this class of tablets, one would have to research and pay extra for these accessories from third parties.

The rugged case is comprised of two layers for drop protection. The first layer with corner bumpers is made out of rubber which helps absorb the shock when the device is dropped. The second layer is a high-impact polycarbonate case that holds the rubber layer in place, but also provides mounting details for the back hand strap, briefcase handle, stylus holder, I/O door cover, and MiFi pouch. MobileDemand also applies an innovative screen protector that has a special coating to reduce finger prints and make water bead and safely run off of the touch panel, allowing for uninterrupted use in rain.

Secure, Windows 8.1 Professional – Regardless of the industry, there are countless opportunities to reinvent business processes for today’s increasingly mobile and interconnected world. By offering a seamless experience for IT and across mobile devices and PCs, the xTablet Flex 8 utilizes Windows 8.1 which helps better engage customers, encourage a more productive mobile workforce and give companies a competitive edge. Rest assured its mission critical information is safe with built-in security features to prevent unauthorized transfer of data.

Rugged Right Out of the Box – Ready to make the move to affordable rugged tablets that endure tough environments? The xTablet Flex 8 comes business-ready. The factory-installed case is MIL-STD-810G for shock and drop from 4 feet while the screen protector can withstand an 8 oz. (228g) steel ball drop from 3.28 feet (100cm) and provides scratch protection. Equip mobile workforces with a rugged Windows tablet that can withstand accidents in the field.

Backed by Superior Support and Service – The xTablet Flex 8 comes with a 1-year warranty with optional extended coverage and is backed by industry-leading service and support from MobileDemand.

Mount in Vehicle in Minutes – The xTablet Flex 8 vehicle cradle, also known as the Snap Mount, is as lightweight as cradles come, but is still as sturdy and durable as all of MobileDemand’s other mounts and takes only minutes to install. The xTablet Flex 8 Snap Mount is installed in passenger vehicles on the passenger side of the vehicle on to the nut and bolt which keeps the seat secure to the floor. It can easily be installed in under 10 minutes at the exact height and angle necessary. In addition, the xTablet Flex 8 has been tested and installed with the Snap Mount on forklifts,, providing added productivity in the warehouse at a reasonable price.

Companion to the new xTablet Flex 10 – Not only does the xTablet Flex 8 expand the family of MobileDemand rugged tablets, but it is the perfect companion for the xTablet Flex 10 which was announced in August 2014. With nearly identical specifications, the xTablet Flex devices give the end user a choice of screen size for optimal performance in the field. Both are rugged to withstand daily abuse, as shown in MobileDemand’s recent torture chamber video series.

“The 8-inch xTablet Flex 8 is a great companion to the new xTablet Flex 10 and complements the wide range of rugged tablets MobileDemand currently offers. It’s small and lightweight for all-day, mobile use but is also rugged to withstand the real-world abuse that happens in the field,” said Jon Rasmussen, Senior Director of Product Management. “Enterprises across the globe can now rely on secure, enterprise-ready Windows in a ruggedized form factor at a truly affordable price point.”

BioHitech America Supports New Massachusetts Food Waste Ban

Chestnut Ridge, New York (PRWEB) October 01, 2014

BioHitech America, the most innovative and sustainable solution company for food waste disposal, endorses the Massachusetts commercial food waste ban which went into effect today. The ban, which is the strictest food-waste legislation to date, requires that businesses and institutions producing one ton or more of food waste per week must divert it from landfills.

“With the growing challenges of climate change and depletion of our Earth’s natural resources, the inefficient processes for waste collection and disposal need to be reformed in order to provide a better solution,” said Frank E. Celli, Chief Executive Officer of BioHitech America. “The Massachusetts law banning food waste helps reduce the needs for landfills, decrease greenhouse gasses, saves on disposal costs, and helps turn trash into vital resources needed for the continued survival of our environment.”

Experts estimate that nearly 1,700 businesses in Massachusetts including hospitals, hotels, grocery stores, restaurant chains, universities, etc. will be subject to the new ban.

“Massachusetts joins Vermont and Connecticut which already have imposed bans on the disposal of food waste,” added Mr. Celli. “We are seeing this shift becoming a trend, upcoming legislation has been passed to start in New York City in July 2015 and others will follow. Sustainable alternatives are no longer just a social responsibility; they are becoming a mandatory requirement.”

Every year, more than 34 million tons of food waste ends up in landfills that release harmful methane gas into the environment. As landfills continue to run out of space and companies continue to generate an excess of food waste, a growing number of jurisdictions are starting to restrict or ban food waste from going to landfills.

About BioHitech America

BioHitech America’s unique solution to food waste combines green technology with the power of big data to offer transparency, savings and a sustainable future. The company’s Eco-Safe Digester, an on-site aerobic digester, eliminates up to 2,400 pounds of food waste in a 24-hour period by converting it into nutrient-neutral water and transporting the water safely through standard sewer lines. The BioHitech Cloud, a technology platform hosted by Amazon, measures key metrics to optimize the food waste disposal process. These metrics are providing the industry with an unprecedented level of transparency that not only helps to reduce the amount of waste generated, but improve company-wide efficiency and profitability.

BioHitech America was recently selected to participate in the exclusive Credit Suisse Private Innovation Circle event. Their solution is the leading sustainable method that allows businesses to move towards the prevention of waste altogether. For more information, please visit http://www.biohitech.com.

PharmaChk Device for Substandard, Counterfeit Drug Detection Receives Saving Lives at Birth Transition-to-Scale Grant

Rockville, MD (PRWEB) August 07, 2014

With the potential to revolutionize how medicines regulators, customs agents, procurement agencies, warehouse personnel, health facilities, and other providers throughout the world detect poor-quality medicines, a new portable device called PharmaChk will be supported with a $ 2 million transition-to-scale grant from Saving Lives at Birth: A Grand Challenge for Development. The funding will help further PharmaChk’s development and bring it closer to commercial production and availability.

“The toll that poor-quality medicines take on global public health—particularly among the most vulnerable populations in the developing world—is staggering, with 99% of all maternal deaths occurring in developing countries,” said Ronald T. Piervincenzi, Ph.D., chief executive officer of the U.S. Pharmacopeial Convention (USP). “Helping to ensure patient access to good quality drugs—including those for used for neonatal care, to fight infectious diseases or to maintain good maternal health—is a leading priority for USP.”

Portable and easy-to-use, PharmaChk is being developed in conjunction with researchers at Boston University (BU) to detect and quantify active ingredients in medicines. The ability to screen for potential medicines quality problems can be a tremendous benefit to healthcare personnel treating patients and to regulators and health program officials responsible for tracking and ensuring the quality of their medicines. This holds especially true in Sub-Saharan Africa and in Asia where national borders are often porous and tracking the flow of medicines from country to country can be extremely challenging.

According to Patrick Lukulay, Ph.D., USP’s vice president of global health impact programs and director of the Promoting the Quality of Medicines (PQM) program funded by the U.S. Agency for International Development (USAID), “Having the appropriate amount of an active pharmaceutical ingredient is key for any medicine to be effective. A poor-quality medicine can be one without enough active ingredient, which can lead to both preventable disease progression and to the development of drug resistance in patients and the community. In other cases, a medicine may have the correct amount of active ingredient but be of poor quality—for example not dissolve properly or contain impurities—due to poor manufacturing or storage practices, which can also compromise the medicine’s ability to bring a clinical benefit to the patient.”

PharmaChk—which was named as one of Scientific American magazine’s “World Changing Ideas of 2013”—has been in development by scientists from Boston University (BU), with support from the PQM program and seed funding from the Saving Lives at Birth partnership. Building country capacity to address public health concerns posed by counterfeit and substandard-quality medicines has been a long-standing goal of PQM, a 10-year program managed by the USAID Office of Health Systems of the Bureau for Global Health, with the aim of strengthening country health systems and improving health outcomes. A scientific organization dedicated to creating quality standards for medicines, food ingredients and dietary supplements, USP works collaboratively with USAID to implement PQM.

Launched in 2011, the Saving Lives at Birth partnership includes USAID, the Government of Norway, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, Grand Challenges Canada (funded by the Government of Canada), and the U.K’s Department for International Development. Saving Lives at Birth is a global call for groundbreaking, scalable solutions to prevent infant and maternal deaths around the time of birth and supports a wide variety of work across maternal and neonatal health, family planning, nutrition and HIV.

While other methods to screen for substandard or counterfeit products in the field are currently available, they are limited in their ability to quickly and accurately quantify the actual amount of active ingredient in a sample as well as to determine how quickly that active ingredient dissolves so it can work in the body as intended.

This past spring, the first pilot study using PharmaChk on medicine samples was conducted at USP’s Center for Pharmaceutical Advancement and Training (CePAT) in Accra, Ghana. USP opened CePAT in May 2013 to help expand the number of trained experts and available tools to combat substandard and counterfeit medicines that threaten nations in Sub-Saharan Africa.

The pilot study was conducted of samples of the antimalarial medicine artesunate, collected from three main medicine sources in Accra—public hospital/clinics, private retail/wholesale pharmacies, and informal outlets. USP and BU scientists are excited about early results from the pilot study, and plans are underway to further refine PharmaChk and to use the device to test samples of other medicines collected from the field.

The Hygiene Kit (SKU# 080-001-116) contains the supplies required to stay clean and healthy during an emergency. It includes a United Spirit OK Kit with 72-hours-worth of soap, toiletries, sunscreen, anti-fungal foot cream, anti-bacterial wipes, and enough water purification tables to treat up to three liters of water, along with extra wipes and compact, but highly-absorbent survival towels. Retail price is $ 29.99.

The Water Filtration Kit (SKU# 080-001-117) contains everything to collect, purify and filter water in an emergency situation. The Sawyer Mini Water Filtration System can filter up to 100,000 gallons of water, and the chlorine dioxide tablets will chemically treat 30 quarts. The Oral IV additive helps you stay properly hydrated, and replaces essential electrolytes and minerals lost through exertion. Retail price is $ 59.99.

The Civil Unrest Kit (SKU# 080-001-115) features self-defense tools to keep users safe during riots, large fights and looting situations. Kit includes a Pro Mag Archangel Defense Pen, OC Spray, a telescoping baton and a folding knife. Retail price is $ 109.99.

More Than 12,700 People Sign Petition to Ban Power Morcellator Surgery, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

New York, NY (PRWEB) July 17, 2014

A nationwide plea to ban power morcellator (http://www.gynecaremorcellatorlawsuit.com/) surgery has taken hold in the U.S., with more than 12,700 signatures now included on a petition inspired by a woman whose uterine cancer allegedly spread because of the device, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports.

As of July 17th, a total of 12,749 people had signed the Change.org petition, which was created by the husband of a Boston woman who is currently living with stage four uterine leiomyosarcoma she claims to have been spread via a fibroid removal procedure she underwent last October. The couple’s petition seeks to ban the use of power morcellators from gynecological surgeries in the U.S., in light of concerns that they may promote the dissemination of uterine cancer cells throughout the peritoneal cavity.*

“We are pleased to see the issues surrounding power morcellation procedures come to light, as our Firm continues to hear from women whose uterine sarcoma and other cancers allegedly spread after laparoscopic hysterectomy and fibroid removal surgeries aided by the device,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently investigating possible morcellator lawsuits on behalf of women who may have been harmed by the surgical tool.

Morcellator Lawsuits

The issues surrounding power morcellator use have garnered national attention recently, especially after a U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) alert in April that warned of their possible association with the spread of uterine sarcoma and other cancers.

According to the FDA, approximately 1 in every 350 women undergoing fibroid removal surgeries have uterine sarcoma cancer cells that may not have been diagnosed prior to surgery. Uterine sarcoma is almost never discovered until after fibroids have been biopsied, and may ultimately decrease a woman’s chances of long-term survival, the alert states.

Most recently, the FDA’s Obstetrics and Gynecology Devices Panel met to discuss the possible dangers of uterine morcellation at a two-day meeting on July 10th and 11th. More than a dozen women and their families delivered emotional testimonies at the meeting, according to a Boston Globe report, that spoke of cancer-related deaths that allegedly resulted from uterine morcellation. After hearing these testimonies, several of the 15 panelists agreed that the devices should be banned from gynecological surgeries, while others disagreed that they should be removed from the market. All the advisors did agree in the end that women should sign a consent form indicating that they understand the risks of power morcellator surgery, after being fully made aware of safety issues by their doctors.**

Women whose uterine cancer may have spread after a uterine morcellation procedure may be entitled to compensation from the manufacturer of the devices used in their surgery. Learn more about the risks allegedly associated with power morcellators when you visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. Obtain a free and confidential case review by calling 800-511-5092.

Delta Delta Delta Fraternity Makes Largest Single Fundraising Commitment in the History of St. Jude Childrens Research Hospital

ARLINGTON, Texas (PRWEB) July 07, 2014

Delta Delta Delta Fraternity has announced a 10-year, $ 60 million fundraising commitment in support of its national philanthropic partner St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital®. In honor of this commitment – the largest single pledge in St. Jude’s history – the Fraternity will receive prominent recognition on the hospital’s campus. Beginning July 7, the short-term housing facility adjacent to the hospital will be named Tri Delta Place.

Tri Delta leaders made the announcement during the Fraternity’s biennial Convention in Indianapolis on Friday, July 4. More than 800 Tri Delta collegiate and alumnae members attended. The new commitment comes just a few months after the Fraternity announced the fulfillment of its previous pledge – $ 15 million in five years – a year and a half early.

“Tri Delta becomes a home away from home for its members during their collegiate years, so it’s fitting that we’re being recognized in this way. Tri Delta Place provides a home for the families and kids of St. Jude at an incredibly challenging time,” said Fraternity President Phyllis Durbin Grissom, Southern Methodist. “We are honored to be able to support St. Jude’s mission in such a meaningful way and humbled by this level of recognition.” 

“We are consistently amazed by Tri Delta’s commitment to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital and the deep passion Tri Delta members have for helping our patients,” said Richard Shadyac Jr., CEO of ALSAC/St. Jude, the fundraising and awareness organization for the hospital. “Tri Delta Place gives families a place to call home while at St. Jude, providing comfort, convenience and support within steps of the hospital.”


Tri Delta Place is located on the St. Jude campus and is home to patients who are visiting St. Jude for eight days or less. The five-story building can house 100 families and has 64 hotel-style rooms and 36 suites. Rooms feature two queen-sized beds and hotel-like amenities. 

“This historical and generous gift will help give our families the peace of mind in knowing they will never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food, so they can focus on what matters most – helping their child live,” Shadyac said.


The partnership between Tri Delta and St. Jude has seen extreme growth since the Fraternity officially named St. Jude its philanthropic partner in 1999. To date, Tri Delta has raised more than $ 30 million for the hospital. Tri Delta’s $ 1 million endowment in 2002 provided a teen room for patients ages 13 to 19. Then, in 2006, Tri Delta committed to raising $ 10 million in 10 years to name to the Tri Delta Patient Care Floor in the Chili’s Care Center, a goal met in just four years. The Fraternity dedicated the most recent $ 15 million campaign to naming the specialty clinic at the hospital.


Tri Delta members of all ages have contributed to the effort, hosting fundraising events, Sincerely Yours letter-writing campaigns and participating in the annual St. Jude Give thanks. Walk., where members raised $ 230,000 in 2013.   


Emily Stephens, a member of Tri Delta’s Theta Zeta Chapter at the University of Texas and a St. Jude patient, said, “One of my favorite parts of Tri Delta’s partnership with St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is seeing how quickly we reach our fundraising goals. I’m always impressed at how much our organization can accomplish. It’s a true privilege to leave such a legacy of philanthropy and generosity.”

About St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital

St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital is leading the way the world understands, treats and defeats childhood cancer and other deadly diseases. St. Jude has the world’s best survival rates for the most aggressive childhood cancers, and treatments invented at St. Jude have helped push the overall childhood cancer survival rate from 20 percent to 80 percent since we opened more than 50 years ago. St. Jude is working to drive the overall survival rate for childhood cancer to 90 percent in the next decade. St. Jude freely shares the breakthroughs we make, and every child saved at St. Jude means doctors and scientists worldwide can use that knowledge to save thousands more children. Families never receive a bill from St. Jude for treatment, travel, housing or food – because all a family should worry about is helping their child live.
