Bamboo could prove a Good Investment, says AAA

Investors seeking a new, sustainable plantation investment could consider investing in fast-growing species like bamboo, explains AAA.

Boston, MA, USA, April 4, 2012 — Investors seeking a new, sustainable plantation investment could consider investing in fast-growing species like bamboo, explains Alternative Asset Analysis (AAA).

Bamboo is being celebrated by many as a new ‘super material’ which can be grown quickly in plantations, which also help to absorb carbon from the atmosphere if managed sustainably. The mature plants are harvested, while others continue to grow in a sustainable cycle, which means there is always standing bamboo forests, always harvested bamboo to use in construction and always habitat for animals and forests for people to enjoy.

“This sustainable plantation model has proven successful as a means of providing an ongoing supply of materials, while helping to reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere, explained AAA’s analysis partner, Anthony Johnson.

The real selling point of bamboo is that the material can be used as a hard alternative to timber, or can be used almost as a material or fibre in weaving or in garment making. It can also be eaten. There is said to be 1,500 uses for the material, which grows fast and helps people living in poorer counties to make a living.

The World Bamboo Organization’s president, Michael Abadia, explains, “From the field and the forest to the factory and the merchant, from the design studio to the laboratory, from the universities to those in political power, people are more and more aware of this potentially renewable resource.”

AAA, an ethical and alternative investment advocacy group, has long-been a supporter of sustainable forestry investment. Plantations of species like Eucalyptus and teak, run by firms like Greenwood Management, offer a great opportunity for investors who want to diversify their portfolios.

Now, it is adding bamboo to its list of recommended asset classes for very similar reasons. “Many of us are pulling away from traditional stocks and bonds, with our sights set firmly on ethical and environmentally-responsible asset classes instead,” stated Mr Johnson.

Ice Cream Market in India 2012 Report Now Available from

Indian ice cream sector has been growing steadily. The per capita consumption is still low compared to the global average creating opportunity for players. Manufacturers look to invest in increasing their presence by expanding their distribution channels. Additionally, health consciousness has led to product expansion which led to the development of the probiotic and sugar free variants. Further, as international players make a beeline towards making a foundation in India, consumers’ interest in experimentation only catapults the overall sector towards further growth. Furthermore, constant development in the cold chain infrastructure and innovation will lead to further growth.


The report begins with an overview of the dairy industry in India providing the market size and growth as well as information regarding its consumption pattern and market structure. This is followed by a primary segmentation of the industry wherein a product mix is highlighted. An overview of the ice cream market provides an introduction to the sector and covers the market size and growth in India along with a representation of the market share of key players in the sector. The manufacturing process as well as a description of the key processes has been covered. An analysis of the value chain has been included which is followed by a snapshot of the various distribution channels players opt for in the ice cream market. An EXIM trend over a period of four years is included which precedes a Porter’s Five Forces analysis that concludes the section. The next section highlights the segmentation in the ice cream market and all three primary segments namely impulse segment, take home segment and artisanal segment have been discussed.


An analysis of the drivers explains the factors for growth of the market and includes lucrative nature of business, rise of buyers in impulse segment, strengthening of distribution network, increase of disposable income and low per capita consumption of ice creams. Ice creams contain air in a substantial amount sometimes even up to 50% which makes the business a very profitable venture wherein profits margins are extremely high at certain times. The lucrative nature of this business has created strong opportunities in the market Ice creams can be ramified into impulse, take home and artisanal segments. Of these, impulse segment entails highest sales volumes as featured products are small in size, relatively cheaper and can be consumed at a go. Availability of impulse products has increased as push carts are present across cities and towns and affordability has contributed to further growth in such buyers. Rise in buyers of impulse products gets translated into higher sales of such products thereby accounting for growth of the total market. Another chief stimulant in this sector is the strengthening of distribution network. As players worked towards bolstering distribution system across the country, availability and coverage has increased. As products came within the reach of consumers and players targeted enhanced coverage, sales inadvertently received a boost. Coverage, availability or even affordability has been complemented by the rising purchasing power among consumers. Ice creams are at times referred to as luxury products and purchases of such products would be affected with the rise disposable income. Further, per capita consumption of ice creams in India is low compared to other countries across the globe. This poses as a latent opportunity for the sector as there is potential for further growth. However, the sector is also facing certain challenges. Factors such as rise in input costs, erratic power supply across the country and rise in local manufacturers pose as impediments for this sector.


Government participation in this sector covers Prevention of Food Adulteration Act 1954, Food and Safety Standards Act 2006 and certain government policies. The major trends identified include rise in frozen yoghurt, creation of exclusive stores, entry of eatery players, establishment of the Indian Ice Cream Manufacturers’ Association, promotional offers flooding the sector, mini meal concept, alternative products and introduction of new variants.


The competition section offers a competitive landscape of the players by providing their financials and key financial ratios. It also provides basic information regarding the organizations.

(Bellevue CA, 04/04/12) – World of Warcraft has truly exploded the market for massively multiplayer online role playing games.  World of Warcraft remains the gold standard for how MMORPGs should work or should be branded.  However, its business model is facing a grave threat recently.  With the rise of the competing free to play business model, many MMORPG players are seeing less value in paying a monthly subscription fee to a game provider when they can play in a similar system somewhere else for free.

Free to play versus paid subscription

There is quite a lot of confusion regarding the two big competing business models in the MMORPG marketplace–free to play and paid subscription. has released an MMORPG consumer guide that steps through the intricate issues and advantages and disadvantages of both these competing business models.  The guide is located at  “The old saying of you get what you pay for does not necessarily apply to MMORPGs.  However, emphasis is on the word necessarily,” said Oliver Thompson, media relations officer for, the internet’s leading authority website for consumer and technology issues, guides and references.

Know the disadvantages and advantages

It is true that free to play games do offer a lot of value.  However, value is relative and also value is the result of competing considerations and opportunity costs that gamers would have to navigate through in order for them to make an informed decision as to what particular game has enough value for them to invest their time or if they choose paid subscription game, their money.

“While the free to play game model looks on its face like a good deal, it may not turn out to be what you expect,” said Thompson.  While there are many advantages enjoyed by free to play games mainly revolving around their price, there are also disadvantages as well. has outlined these key disadvantages and some of them could be actual deal killers for would-be players of paid subscription games.  “Paid subscription games are not off the hook completely either,” said Thompson.  There are certain systematic flaws in the paid subscription business model that can get in the way of fulfilling user experience.

The question is that is there a balance that could be struck somewhere?  The guide steps through all the advantages and disadvantages of both business models so consumers can make an informed choice regarding which game they choose to install and play.

Maxpro Air Amplifiers Offer Optimal Operating Pressure

In response to a demand for energy-efficient solutions for boosting air pressure at workstations, Maxpro has engineered a range of air amplifiers that are powered solely on air. These air amplifiers can be considered to be one of the most cost-effective tools for air systems that require higher air pressure than is currently available. Several industries have employed these devices to boost air pressure from 30 PSI to 4,350 PSI with great results.

Even as Maximator and Maxpro have consolidated their standing as a leading air amplifier manufacturer, High Pressure Technologies, LLC has come to be recognized as the exclusive distributor of Maximator and Maxpro products. Their air boosters have proven to be exceedingly successful in augmenting the supply of air pressure in air systems and pneumatically operated machinery, where the available working pressure is deficient. These boosters accept regular shop air to generate optimal working air pressures.

For applications that require multiple points for air amplification, it is possible to install these air boosters at multiple locations around a facility or site. Moreover, these air amplifiers are lightweight, easy to install, easy to operate and require minimum maintenance.

Maxpro offers a range of single or double acting air amplifiers. While the single acting air amplifiers displace air once per full cycle, the double acting air amplifier displaces air with every stroke, or twice per full cycle. As a mark of advanced engineering, all air boosters comprise characteristics such as PTFE Seals, ‘Stall’ at target pressure and an ‘Automatic Restart’ feature after a drop of only 1% from target pressure.

These air amplifiers offer multipurpose uses such as blow-off, cooling and drying applications, high pressure cleaning of weld areas, driving pneumatic cylinders etc.

Kasasa Changes The Face of Local Banking in Utah

First Utah Bank Introduces Kasasa, Offering Consumers a Better Banking Experience

Salt Lake City, UT, April 04, 2012 – First Utah Bank asks consumers, “Do you Kasasa?” as it becomes the first financial institution in Utah to launch the country’s most innovative financial products.

Kasasa® is a new brand of free checking and savings accounts that pays consumers to use their account with what interests them most—high interest and automatic savings. These accounts, combined with the personal service that only community financial institutions can deliver, are offering Utah residents a better checking account option than the megabank experience.

“We are pleased to be the first in Utah to offer these unique products,” said Amy Foulks, Senior Vice President at First Utah Bank. “Kasasa delivers what research shows people really want but believe they can’t have—great financial products with the personal service of a community based financial institution.”

First Utah Bank is offering two Kasasa financial products, including Kasasa Cash® and Kasasa Saver®. All Kasasa products are free, reward-based accounts, with no minimum balance to earn rewards, no monthly service fee, online banking and nationwide ATM fee refunds.

Kasasa Cash – A free checking account that earns high interest for every month the account holder qualifies.

Kasasa Saver – A free, high interest saver account linked to a Kasasa Cash checking account. The interest and ATM fee refunds earned in the Kasasa Cash account are automatically deposited into the Kasasa Saver account when the account holders qualify. The balance in the Kasasa Saver account also earns a high rate of interest.

To receive the Kasasa account benefits, each monthly qualification cycle account holders are asked to do a few simple things like, receive an eStatement, access online banking, use a debit card a minimum number of times, and have an electronic ACH payment post to and clear their account. If an account holder does not meet the qualifications in a given month, First Utah Bank will alert the individual, who will be eligible the following month to earn the benefits. There is no monthly service fee charged if the qualifications are not met, in fact, the account still earns a base interest rate.

“Extensive research has shown us that consumers would prefer to do business with community financial institutions, but feel they would lose access to products,” continued Foulks. “Kasasa is opening people’s eyes to a new banking model where no sacrifices are necessary. It’s a win-win because account holders get innovative products and personalized service.”

Kasasa is being introduced with an aggressive, highly engaging marketing campaign. It comes to life through a fresh mix of eye-popping advertising, the likes of which exceed the typical megabank’s high-budget programs. The broadcast media features America’s top slam poets riffing lyrical threads around the theme of “Do you Kasasa?”

Kasasa is distributed to First Utah Bank from BancVue, the leading provider of innovative products, dynamic marketing, and data-driven consulting solutions to community financial institutions nationwide to help them win the war against the megabanks.
