Miss Cougar International Speaks Out Against CougarLife Billboard

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy.

San Rafael, CA (May 31, 2013) — Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-479-3800

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy. The Los Angeles billboard depicts a woman breastfeeding with a thought bubble balloon from the (presumably male) baby’s head saying “Jealous?” in order to promote their dating website for older women and younger men.

Ms. Manderino, a popular educational speaker on the aging revolution and s*x and gender evolution, regularly speaks about dating sites that use s*xually graphic images of older women to sell their product. “A few individuals have managed to brand the cougar archetype and, as a result, they have p*rnified, objectified and trivialized an entire generation of confident, empowered women who are exercising new choices and freedoms as society evolves.”

In her blog, Age and the S*x Evolution, Ms. Manderino explains how Cougarlife and its parent, Avid Life Media, are perpetuating a harmful, regressive image of mature single women. “Women who are s*xually knowledgable, comfortable and open lead happy, healthy lives as the s*xual equals of their partners. Characterizing confident women as ‘hunters’ reinforces the obsolete and dangerous idea that human s*xuality requires a ‘predator’ and a ‘prey’ which creates a climate that contributes to s*xual assault as well as unsatisfying consensual s*x.” The full blog is at http://www.amyluna.com/blog.

Manderino is a performing artist, academic scholar, public speaker and lifelong advocate for gender equality and healthy s*xuality. She competed to win Miss Cougar International in order to acknowledge the exciting cultural shifts occurring for women and men and to debunk the obsolete “Mrs. Robinson” stereotype. She is also a member of Mensa (high IQ society), Omicron Delta Kappa (national leadership honor society) and the Alumnae Leadership Council of the Public Leadership Education Network for women. Amy Luna Manderino is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-666-7626 or by emailing misscougarinternational@gmail.com.

SmartTOP Convertible Top Controller for BMW 3-Series E46 Now With More Features

The SmartTOP aftermarket add-on module for BMW 3-series (E46) convertibles allows opening and closing of the top while driving at slow speeds and with one-touch convenience. The top can also be controlled from the existing key fob remote. Automotive electronics specialist Mods4cars has now extended the functionality of the product to include automatic door locks while driving, remote controlled lighting (coming/leaving home) and park assist for cars without seat memory.

Las Vegas, NV (USA), May 30th, 2013 — The SmartTOP add-on convertible top module offered by Mods4cars for BMW 3-series (E46) allows drivers to open or close the top while moving at up to 40 km/h (~28mph). Thanks to the convenient one-touch operation a single touch of the console button is enough. Additionally the top can be raised or lowered, also fully automatically, from outside the car via the original key fob remote.

Giving owners even more extra convenience, the manufacturer has now added a few new functions into the module, all of which are user programmable. The module can be programmed to lock the doors while driving and automatically unlock them afterwards. This convenient anti-carjacking feature is standard on most cars nowadays. Another new feature is the ability to turn the front and rear lights on by remote to light up dark garages for example or to find the car in a dark parking lot. Lastly, a new park assist feature was included for card without seat memory. This feature automatically lowers the passenger mirror when shifting into reverse gear in order to avoid damage to the rims when parallel-parking.

Existing functionality was improved as well. Closing the top by remote is now also possible by pressing the lock button on the remote three times. “The new firmware makes operation from the remote more intuitive”, says PR-Manager Sven Tornow. Now the formula is simple: click three times on unlock to lower the top, click three times on lock to raise it.

“We consider our products to be convenience add-ons. Our goal is not only to improve the experience of top operation itself, but also to give owners of our products additional useful features that make using the car more fun.” Sven Tornow continues. This also applies to the installation of the product. The BMW kit now comes with a full plug-and-play wiring harness that merely requires pulling and reseating two connectors in order to complete installation. No need to handle any individual wires.

These new features are available not just for new customers. Mods4cars offers a free firmware update for all existing SmartTOP modules. Every module comes with a standard USB port and can be updated with the help of support software available for Windows and Mac. Updates are always free which makes the purchase of any SmartTOP module a future-proof investment.

SmartTOP convertible top and convenience add-on kits are available for: Alfa, Audi, Bentley, BMW, Ferrari, Ford, Infiniti, Mazda, Mercedes-Benz, Mini, Nissan, Opel, Peugeot, Porsche, Renault, Volkswagen and Volvo.

The SmartTOP module for BMW 3-series (E46) convertibles is available for as low as 249 Euros + tax.

About Mods4cars:
Mods4cars was founded in 2002 with the idea to add a highly demanded feature to the otherwise almost perfect Porsche Boxster: Comfort One-Touch roof operation while driving at slow speeds. The resulting product offered not only that, but also allowed quick and easy installation by just swapping out a relay box, thus leaving no traces and no permanent changes on the vehicle. The first SmartTOP roof controller was born.

The success of their first products in Germany and Europe prompted them in late 2004 to move operations to the USA, to be able to serve the American market as well as all other English speaking countries such as Australia, UK and South Africa from one central location. Their business has grown to a full-fledged international corporation with an office in Las Vegas and a full line of innovative products as well as distributors and installation partners all over the globe.

Being highly specialized in the development and distribution of aftermarket roof- and comfort controllers since 2002 allows them to offer an unsurpassed level of competence and product quality. Their main goal is optimization of each individual product to a maximum in compatibility, usability and intuitive operation. They put greatest effort into development and quality checks of all their products to achieve this goal and meet all expectations of their customers.

The extraordinary success of their products is also based on the great communication with their customers, which usually already starts for each new product during the development and prototyping phase.

Enservio to Set up Mobile Office to Help Recovery Efforts in Moore, Oklahoma

Helping CAT teams, Claimants and Carriers Inventory and Value Lost Contents for Speedier Claims Processing and Settlements.

Moore, OK (USA), May 30th, 2013 — National carriers responding to relief efforts in Moore, Oklahoma, have set up an “Insurance Village” at the First Baptist Church. Moore is a suburb south of Oklahoma City that was severely hit by the deadliest storm system to strike the “Tornado Alley” area since 2011. Aiding these carriers, Enservio announced today it will roll in a mobile RV office equipped with laptop computers, cell phones and workstations at this location. The mobile office will be used to support local CAT adjusters, property appraisers, carriers and claimants in an effort to expedite claims processing, contents inventory and valuation services.

Enservio’s team of Service on Site (SOS) field inventory specialists will be on the ground as well to provide hands-on contents inventory services. At Enservio’s mobile RV office, CAT adjusters, claimants, and local field appraisers will have real-time access to MyPropertyLoss.com, an online contents valuation listing service for claimants, and ListAssist, a telephonic inventory capture service. ListAssist offers insureds a trained operator over the telephone to help navigate the process of recreating their inventory. These applications offer robust content recreation and allows insureds more visibility into the process as well as speeding up claim settlements.

Enservio has established an emergency catastrophe line that carrier adjusters can call for contents services help. The toll-free number to call is 1-855.864.0456.

“Our hearts go out to the people of Moore, Oklahoma. Our mobile RV office staff will help claimants on behalf of our carrier partners and the insurance industry to accurately capture and value thousands of their lost items in order to get these claims paid as swiftly as possible and help families regain some degree of normalcy,” said Jon McNeil, Enservio CEO. “We have the means, the talent and the right technology to get the job done.”

Claim settlements will also be expedited by the use of ReStore pre-paid debit cards that Enservio carrier partners will issue to claimants for convenient access to badly needed funds. Upon activation, the debit cards can be used immediately to purchase goods and services or to access cash at an ATM.

Farmers Insurance and 15 other insurance companies have set up command posts to aid in property recovery efforts caused by a tornado devastation that is reportedly estimated to cost up to $5 billion in insured property losses. Other organizations camped at the Insurance Village include FEMA and Oklahoma Emergency Management.

Market Rates Insight Releases Findings from its New Consumer Study: Growth and Revenue Potential from Emerging Financial Services

New fee optimization study reveals perceived value of new financial services and how to optimize fees with service bundles to generate new revenue.

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (May 30, 2013) — Market Rates Insight, Inc., a leader in financial services intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, has completed the analysis phase of its latest consumer research and fee optimization study, “Growth and Revenue Potential for Emerging Financial Services.” The study examines 13 emerging financial services and assesses consumer attitudes about the importance and value of each service, segmented by banks and credit unions as well as demographic groups. The study findings will be reviewed in a webinar to be hosted by Market Rates Insight on June 18.

This study is the only one of its kind to measure consumer attitudes about banking fees and services and was conducted nationwide to help banks and credit unions better understand consumers and identify new revenue sources from fee-based services and service bundles. Banks and credit unions are facing new challenges from non-banking competitors offering banking services, and they need to identify new ways to attract and keep customers. This study provides empirical data on the importance and value of emerging services to help financial institutions create service offerings that attract and retain customers while building revenue.

Some of the preliminary findings reveal that identity theft alerts (70.8%), credit score reporting (71.4%), payment protection services (64.6%), and same-day bill pay (58.7%) currently ranked with the highest consumer demand. Other services such as eldercare services, prepaid reloadable cards, and location-based coupons showed the greatest growth potential with consumers.

This study also reveals for the first time how consumers value certain combinations of services. Consumers typically value service bundles more than individual services, and will pay a premium for bundled services. The study reveals which combination of services command higher fees because of increased consumer demand.

“For the foreseeable future deposit rates will remain flat and loan demand will stay soft, so financial institutions will have to rely in fee revenues for income growth. But to convert services from ‘free to fee,’ banks and credit unions will have to identify new services that consumers want and are willing to pay for. Our new study shows banks and credit unions how to use service fees to expand profits and penetration with both existing and new customers.”

The “Growth and Revenue Potential lf Emerging Financial Services” study is being offered in both an Essential and Premium package. The Essential package includes copies of the complete 150-page study and a competitive survey of 10 financial institutions and their adoption of the 13 emerging financial services. The Premium package includes the survey and competitive data, as well as an optimization analysis of service bundles, an online optimization consultation, copies of the Emerging Trend Spotlight quarterly update, and access to trend analysis and service integration online seminars.

Ready for a New Job? Bryant & Stratton College Hosts Career Expo and Job Fair in Akron on June 11

Over 30 area businesses will be in attendance and ready to interview qualified candidates; students and job seekers alike can also receive resume help and polish their interview skills with College experts

Akron, OH, May 29, 2013 – Bryant & Stratton College announced today that it will host a career expo and job fair at its Akron campus on June 11. Over 30 area companies will be in attendance and ready to speak with qualified job seekers. Additionally, campus career experts will be on hand to provide tips on how to improve resumes and interview skills. The event will be held from 10 a.m. to 3 p.m. at 190 Montrose West Avenue.

Campus officials encourage job seekers, especially those interested in the medical and healthcare field to attend. To help attendees prepare for the event, Bryant & Stratton College offers these tips for being successful at a job fair:

* Be prepared – Attendees should bring plenty of copies of their resume for potential employers. Additionally, attendees only have a brief window of time to make a good impression. Preparing a short introduction, also known as an elevator speech, that highlights personal background information, leadership or professional successes and the reason a candidate will be an asset to a company will help quickly grab a recruiter’s attention. “Being able to communicate who you are and what you might bring to a company in under two minutes is a critical skill at a job fair. Attendees will be meeting with several potential employers and you want to be sure to leave a good impression,” said Dr. Florentine Hoelker, Akron Campus Director, Bryant & Stratton College. “Having a couple questions prepared is also a good way to show you will be a thoughtful and proactive employee.”

* Be polished – Looking and sounding professional are critical at a job fair. There is always a chance of being interviewed on the spot at a job fair, so attendees should plan to wear suits just as they would to any other interview. Practicing answers to common interview questions is also helpful and can help attendees communicate confidence.

* Be polite – Companies often meet hundreds of applicants during a job fair so little things can go a long way. Job seekers who say thank you at the end of a meeting or get the recruiter’s business card and send a hand-written thank you note give themselves a chance to stand out among the crowd.

“Job fairs are a great opportunity to meet with several employers in a short amount of time. However, attendees only have one chance to make a good impression, so it’s a good idea to spend time planning for the event,” said Dr. Hoelker. “At Bryant & Stratton College part of our mission is to teach students employability skills and make sure they are career ready upon graduation. This fair and expo is part of that effort. We are very excited to help job seekers connect with prospective employers and get any extra help they need with their job search from our knowledgeable counselors.”

What: Career Expo and Job Fair
When: June 11, 10 a.m. to 3 p.m.
Where: 190 Montrose West Avenue, Akron, OH 44321

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C. Reports IFRS Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2013

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C., a Cypriot holding company of the URALCHEM Group, one of the largest producers of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers in Russia, announced its unaudited IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

Moscow, Russia (May 29, 2013)

– Revenue increased to US $683 million, compared to US $673 million in Q1 2012.
– Operating profit increased to US $220 million, compared with US $178 million in Q1 2012.
– Adjusted EBITDA grew to US $250 million, compared to US $207 million in Q1 2012.
– Net profit amounted to US $161 million, compared with US $354 million in Q1 2012*.

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C. (hereinafter URALCHEM Holding or the Company), a Cypriot holding company of the URALCHEM Group (hereinafter the Group), one of the largest producers of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers in Russia, announced its unaudited IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM, OJSC (the Russian holding company of the Group), commented on the results, “In the first quarter of this year, URALCHEM increased its revenues and the adjusted EBITDA grew substantially. This shows how effectively the Company is working. URALCHEM is still focusing on production of high-margin products demanded by the market. The first three months of 2013 showed the sort of results which we had anticipated. This is a positive testament to our strategy of strengthening our position in the nitrogen segment.”

Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 grew to US $683 million, compared to US $673 million in the first quarter of last year. Operating profit amounted to US $220 million, or 32% of the revenue, compared with the operating profit of US $178 million, or 26% of the revenue, in the first quarter of 2012. Net profit for the first quarter of 2013 amounted to US $161 million, compared to US $354 million in the first quarter of 2012.

During the first quarter of 2013, adjusted EBITDA reached US $250 million, compared to US $207 million the year before, a rise of 19%. The adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2013 comprised 37% of revenue compared with 31% of revenue for the first quarter of 2012.

Revenue, EBITDA margin and adjusted EBITDA increased during the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. The difference in the net profit is due to revaluation of the Company’s share in Minudobrenia, Perm carried out in 2012 and foreign exchange differences that showed opposite dynamics in 2013.


During the quarter, the price of ammonia was slowly declining. The main factor determining the price dynamics was the lack of demand in both the agricultural and the industrial segments. Reduced production of phosphate fertilizers in North Africa and India resulted in lower demand for ammonia in these regions. US demand for ammonia for direct application was satisfied by supplies from Trinidad and from domestic market. The growth of the industrial segment in East Asia appeared to be insufficient to cover spot volumes and the demand was met by contract supplies. Ammonia production in Egypt decreased due to the limitations of gas supplies for nitrogen production, but at the same time, capacities utilization in Trinidad increased to 90%.

At the beginning of the quarter prices for urea increased rapidly. Quotes for prilled urea in the Black Sea ports showed growth from $375/t FOB in early January to $445/t FOB in mid-February. In the Baltic, the corresponding figures were at $360/t FOB and $430/t FOB. The most significant factor that determined the dynamics of prices at the beginning of the first quarter was the shift of the market balance towards demand.

On the one hand, the early part of the year is traditionally a period of high demand from Europe and the USA, and European importers had low stocks at the start of the purchasing season. On the other hand, restrictions on the supply of gas to nitrogen production facilities in Egypt at the beginning of the year led to a substantial reduction in export supply.

Shortages of supply of Egyptian urea increased the interest of European buyers in products from other countries, including the supply of prilled urea from the CIS. However, from mid-February, there was a reduction in prices, which continued until the end of the quarter. In the ports of CIS, price reduction was associated with the sale of long positions by traders. A decline in prices for ammonium nitrate in Europe produced additional pressure on the price of urea.

Prices continued to decline in March due to lower demand in the US and Europe, caused by the delay in fertilizer application due to adverse weather conditions. Latin American importers, the biggest buyers of Russian urea, switched to purchasing for current needs, focusing on the dynamics of prices. Toward the end of March, supply increased in the Ukrainian ports in connection with the completion of the season in that area.

Ammonium nitrate
Quotes for ammonium nitrate generally followed the trends in the price of urea. During January and February there was a steady growth in the quotations for the product at the ports of the CIS because of the shortage of the product available for export, due to supplies being allocated for domestic use. In mid-March the trend changed markedly due to lower domestic demand.

Phosphate fertilizers
Until mid-February, global decline in prices continued due to the lack of current demand. In February, major suppliers decreased production, which made it possible to stabilize prices. Then, due to increased demand in Latin America, prices started to restore. By the end of March, indicators of export prices in Tampa rose to $515/t FOB against the lowest prices of $465/t – $475/t FOB. Still, Latin America remained the single largest source of demand. Indian buyers refrained from transactions; closed tenders were held, mostly to test price expectations.

Production and sales

In the first quarter of 2013 the fertilizer market was stable and the Group’s products enjoyed strong demand. Volume of production by the Group’s enterprises remained at the level of the first quarter of last year. A significant portion of production output was sold in April 2013 due to adverse weather conditions and late start of the sowing season.

Financial Situation

Cash generated from operating activities in the first quarter of 2013 amounted to US $168 million, compared to US $174 million in the first quarter of 2012.

As at 31 March 2013, the Company’s net debt amounted to US $801 million. The weighted average interest rate of the loan portfolio in the first quarter of 2013 equalled 4.6% annually compared to 5.8% annually during the same period last year.

Streamline Workflow from Google Apps to External Users

If you are looking for a program that will help you with workflow management and security for Google apps, then netkiller_Docs is your best option as it is compatible with not just your personal Gmail accounts but also with other non-Google accounts.

San Jose, CA, May 29, 2013 – When you have netkiller_Docs, you can easily send a document to other users and ask them to review it thoroughly and approve it. For instance, let’s say you want to send an official document to your partners or clients who use non-Google apps and are external users; in this case, you can choose from My Google contacts or enter their email addresses.

When you use netkiller_Docs, you will realize that sending Google docs and getting them approved has never been so easy and simple. When you add recipients to the workflow, you will easily be able to select between internal users or externals users by choosing between Google app users or email. Also, document history such as submission and approval is logged so tracking activity is a breeze.

How You Can Effectively Streamline Workflow from Google Apps to a Gmail User

If you have a client that doesn’t have a Google account or Google apps, then sending a document for him to view is almost impossible. However, with netkiller_Docs, as the collative screen shows below, you can easily click on the ‘add’ button below, select the ‘approve (email) as recipient and the person will be added. Also, if you wish to add workflow steps, then youcan click on the ‘add’ button and send the document to the third person when the second person approves the document.

Once you have entered that, click the ‘approve email’ menu, enter the recipients email or select it for your Google contact by clicking the ‘Contacts’ tab.

After you have finished assigning the recipients, simply click the ‘submit’ button so that the document is sent to the next responsible person, who will receive notification via email.

When this user opens the email, click the link it shows on the Google document inside netkiller_Docs and submit the timestamp. From here on, the user will be able to review, edit, and approve or reject the document without any need for login or software installation.

Finally, when the document is approved, the sender receives a notification email that shows that the document has been approved by the recipient.

How to Change the Ownership of the Document

When you submit a document, the ownership of the document will be transferred to your document administrator account. You can then assign your document admin account from the configuration menu. Here you have to remember that the workflow member will only have the permission to view or edit the document and everything will be logged.
