The ApiFix Spinal Implant Receives TGA Certification

ApiFix, a portfolio company of The Trendlines Group, received TGA certification through its distributor Orthotech Pty. Ltd. to begin marketing the ApiFix system in Australia for the treatment and correction of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) using an innovative, minimally invasive surgical approach.

The ApiFix system represents a breakthrough treatment for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) as it is a minimally invasive, non-fusion spinal implant system which dramatically improves the quality of life of patients who undergo scoliosis surgery. Additionally, it saves hospitalisation and OR time, and is considerably more cost-effective than current scoliosis surgery.

“Incorporating the ApiFix system into our portfolio of products fits our mission to bring exceptional, unique, state-of the-art orthopaedic products into the Australasian market. The ApiFix system provides game-changing technology for AIS patients and surgeons alike and we’re proud to include them in our suite of products,” commented Sam Scott-Young, Managing Director of Orthotech.

Standard scoliosis surgical correction is a highly invasive, lengthy procedure involving a long recovery period, and resulting in a rigid spine due to fusion of the vertebrae. The ApiFix approach brings an ingenious solution with its minimally invasive, non-fusion spinal implant system, inserted in a short procedure, followed by a brief recovery period, and maintains spine flexibility.

ApiFix CEO Eran Feldhay, M.D. remarked: “The certification for the ApiFix product by the TGA through our distribution partnership with Orthotech allows us to expand our reach and provide treatment for AIS patients in Australia too. We look forward to working with a company like Orthotech who are committed to innovative orthopaedic solutions for their customers.”

Automation key to tackling maritime skills crisis

A perfect storm of retiring baby-boomers and the ongoing global economic downturn, are causing the number of skilled seafarers in the global industry to shrink dramatically, but attendees at Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats Middle East (SOMWME) will hear from an expert panel of speakers how automation and advances in connectivity could solve the looming skills crisis.

The issue will be addressed on day one of the biannual Seatrade Offshore Marine and Workboats Middle East (SOMWME) 2017 exhibition and conference, at the Abu Dhabi National Exhibition Centre (ADNEC) from 25 – 27 September 2017, where speakers at the ‘Manning Update’ will assess the role of automation in tackling the ongoing challenge.

“The number of skilled personnel across multiple functions has been in decline for a number of years. In 2010, The Manpower Report by BIMCO/ISF calculated the global supply of officers stood at 624,000, compared to a demand for 637,000, concluding the figures were ‘near-ideal’.

“However, by 2016, the shortfall stood at 16,500 officers and is predicted to rise to 147,000 worldwide by 2025. In the United States, figures published in 2016 by the U.S. Maritime Administration placed the country’s shortfall at 70,000 mariners by 2022,” said Emma Howell, Group Marketing Manager, Seatrade portfolio, UBM EMEA.

Moderated by Captain Michael P. Elwert, Group Chief Executive Officer, Elektrans Group, the panel will feature William Tobin, Underwriting Syndicate Manager — Offshore, The Shipowners Club and Captain John Lloyd, Chief Executive Officer, The Nautical Institute, as well as Revd Dr Paul Burt, Regional Director, Gulf & South Asia, Mission to Seafarers.

Captain Lloyd commented: “The increasing sophistication of technology is opening the door to serious discussions about the remote control of ships, perhaps one day leading to completely autonomous vessels. While moving in this direction gives wonderful opportunities to improve reliability, one of the key challenges will be to balance the cost of reliability against performance and financial viability through savings. That is really a matter for the technologists and the economists to address.”

Automation in shipping is not a new concept; many responsibilities, checks and safety functions are now carried out autonomously. But in the age of driverless vehicles and remote controlled drones, the first unmanned, autonomous ship, could be on the horizon.

It would not be the first time, complicated skill sets are delegated to artificial intelligence — aviation has undergone a similar transformation, with the role of the pilot evolving with each new generation of aircraft. However, innovations in shipping can be leveraged to address a gap, rather than requiring existing specialists to up-skill.

Lloyd continued: “On the operational side it is important we create a regulatory framework which gives an opportunity for these vessels to be developed and then to identify the skills required to operate them safely and efficiently.

“It is likely these skills will draw heavily on maritime knowledge and experience if we are to develop effective solutions.  As the professional body for those in control of ships, The Nautical Institute is already actively engaged in these discussions and looks forward to the next generation of ships and operations supported by world-leading technology and innovation.”

Part of SOMWME’s Power 60s series the Manning Update will be followed by a session on finance and law, moderated by Eithne Treanor, founder and MD of E Treanor Media and featuring Bora Bariman, Head of Energy & Marine, Corporate & Institutional Banking Group, National Bank of FujairahDavid Manuel, Senior Marine Specialist – Petrodata, IHS Markit; Knut Mathiassen, Managing Partner, NorthCape DMCC; and Tien Tai, Partner, Holman Fenwick Willan.

Elsewhere in the conference programme, discussion will turn to green and efficient vessels for the future.

Seatrade Offshore Marine & Workboats is the largest workboat and offshore marine event outside of the USA, attracting more than 200 offshore marine and workboat companies.

Avid.ly Releases UPLTV, World’s First AI-Powered Optimization Platform, Increasing User LTV by 30%

Avid.ly, a pioneering mobile application developer, has officially released UPLTV, the world’s first user lifetime value (LTV) optimization platform powered by artificial intelligence (AI). Pilot program participants have seen averaging 30% user LTV increase, with some over 50%.

Photo – http://mma.prnewswire.com/media/543109/Avid_ly_Releases_UPLTV.jpg

Avid.ly has positioned the product to solve age-old business model challenges facing independent mobile game developers and startups alike. Combining machine learning and big data from over one billion users, UPLTV analyzes user behavior in real time to balance user retention with monetization revenue and developer profit.

Analysis of User Behavior

UPLTV begins by leveraging Google’s TensorFlow and using long short-term memory (LSTM), a recurring neural network (RNN), to analyze user behavior. This includes how players in the aggregate and individually interact with each game, including when players launch or exit a game, make in-app purchases and their sensitivity to advertising.

Mediation of Monetization Events

The platform automatically mediates what monetization events – opportunities for the player to make in-app purchases or view advertisements – to embed in context-appropriate scenarios. By testing player responsiveness and forecasting 7- and 14-day retention rates, it can optimize subsequent monetization event exposure and frequency to maximize player LTV to a 95% confidence interval.

“Having developed and published mobile apps and games at scale, we intimately understand the headaches faced by developers and startups,” says Brain Xie, CEO of Avid.ly. “UPLTV is the culmination of all our experience tackling the problem of guaranteeing current and subsequent revenue while keeping players immersed in the game.”

Xie notes that UPLTV is just the first step in AI-powered LTV optimization. “Our mission is to blend powerful, time-saving technologies into game development. Our goal is to help our partners convert user gameplay into the sustainable income that allows them to create delightful experiences for their audience.”

“Sanya Celebration” tourism promo was held in Almaty, Kazakhstan

The 2017 Sanya Celebration (the “Celebration”), an international tourism tradeshow was held in Almaty,the largest city of Kazakhstan, on August 7th, 2017. It was organized by the Municipal People’s Government of Sanya, with the theme of “A Romantic Invitation to Beautiful Sanya”.

The Celebration featured a roadshow which highlighted Sanya’s unique charm as the sole tropical coastal tourist attractions in China and as a home to several of Chinese ethnic minorities. A portfolio was presented at the event, which demonstrated Sanya’s strong tourism products and services. The high quality was in line with global standards. As an open and international tourism destination , the city is highlighted by its safe environment which is vital to a nice vacation.

While hosting of the Celebration in Central Asia, Sanya, as a destination for seaside vacation in China, demonstrated many of its international-grade facilities, and gave warm invitations to travelers from all over the world. The all-day roadshow, with several VIP guests from Almaty in attendance, has received rave reviews from the Almaty Department of Tourism, tourism professionals and locals.

Kazakhstan is one of the main sources where visitors to Sanya come from. During the first half of the year, Sanya has attracted 15,000 visitors from Kazakhstan, five times than that of the same period in 2016. To consolidate and expand Sanya’s inbound tourism market, an official governmental delegation led by Sanya’s mayor Wu Yanjun arrived in Kazakhstan to promote travel to the seaside city and highlight the city’s unique natural and rich tourism resources.

The mayor, who sent invitations to participating guests and media representatives in advance of the event, said, “As a strong advocate of China’s One Belt, One Road initiative, Sanya has distinct geographical advantages, rich cultural resources and an ever-changing skyline as a result of ongoing construction and urbanization. The city’s role as China’s sole international-grade tropical seaside vacation destination has led it to attract tens of millions of travelers from around the world annually, with large numbers of the visitors originating from Kazakhstan. Currently, Sanya is exploring opportunities to further expand its portfolio of tourism products and improve its tourism landscape, while working to strengthen environmental protection as well as to enhance its urban infrastructure and the quality of its services. The aim is to transform the city into a top travel destination that offers all the amenities found in the world’s well-travelled tropical paradises. Looking forward, Sanya plans to further improve its tourism facilities and services for travelers from all over the world, including for those from Kazakhstan.”

The tourism promotional event, designed especially for international travel industry executives, was held in the afternoon and was attended by hundreds of executives from across the sector.

During the event, Sanya Tourism Development Commission director Fan Mu gave an illustrated presentation on the history and culture of Sanya, even spending a few minutes detailing the legends and stories behind the beautiful scenery that has made the city such a draw, with a focus on the promotion of Sanya as a tropical destination as well as a one with high-quality tourism resources and services for overseas travelers. He said, “Earlier this year, Sanya was the only locale in China to be named as one of 52 Places to Go 2017 by The New York Times. Located at 18° N latitude, Sanya has over 300 days of sunlight per year and an average temperature of 25°C (77°F). With these unique resources, the travel industry has become a pillar of local economic development. The city now has completed its ecological restoration and urban renovation. With improved urban facilities, newly-completed highways and roads, a special police contingent whose sole function is to assist and assure the safety of travelers as well as a telephone hotline for handling visitors’ questions and issues already in operation, Sanya’s enhanced environment for international travelers and vacationers will fully address their needs.” Finally, Mr. Fan, on behalf of all tourism professionals in Sanya, sent an invitation to participating guests for further tourism cooperation and cultural exchanges.

The promotional event received positive feedback from attendees. Rysty Karabayeva, President of the Kazakhstan Eurasian Tourism Association, added, “As an emerging tropical coastal destination with international-grade facilities, Sanya is boosting the development of local tourism by expanding into international markets, including launching new international air and ocean cruise routes, as well as a visa-free policy for the convenience of tourists from across the globe. We are impressed by their efforts and will continue to help in bringing more travelers from Kazakhstan to Sanya.”

Travelers from 26 countries now enjoy visa-free access to Sanya. In addition, 21 international and regional routes, including the Sanya-Almaty service, operate 58 flights weekly. The flights, which have helped form 4-hour, 8-hour, and 12-hour tourism circles that are connecting Sanya to more countries and regions, are a major factor in transforming the city into a prosperous international tourism destination.

The Celebration went smoothly with positive and supportive feedback from participants throughout the day. The booths, which displayed samplings of local foods and products as well as information on accommodations, travel, sightseeing, shopping and entertainment, were flooded with visitors, many of whom were keenly interested in the Li-nationality brocades and the traditional Chinese medical physiotherapy. The interest among the many visitors was further enhanced by the fact that many of the presentations deployed the latest virtual reality and interactive entertainment technologies to get the message across. The atmosphere was so warm that many of the booths quickly ran out of promotional flyers and brochures, despite the large print runs in anticipation of a substantial number of attendees. Estimations of the results of the events indicate that nearly 1,000 inquiries were made about the promotions.

Ayjan, an Almaty resident, said,” I had always hoped to have a chance to visit Sanya and now I have gained more information about its customs, culture and people. I look forward to spending my holiday in this beautiful place someday.”

The Celebration had previously been held in Bangkok, ThailandKuala Lumpur, Malaysia and Jakarta, Indonesia and now in Almaty. The Sanya government said that future stops for the roadshow include Russia, the UK and Germany, as well other countries and regions that are the main sources of visitors to Sanya. At each stop, they plan to host promotional events with the aim of enhancing the awareness and heightening the reputation of Sanya in international tourism markets.

About Sanya

Located at the southernmost point of China’s Hainan island, Sanya is an international coastal destination. The city has been praised by global visitors as the best Chinese seaside vacation destination because of its stunning coastline and profound cultural heritage.

The state-of-the-art on-board computerized tunnel guidance systems have been provided in the TBM to ensure that the tunnelling is done as per the designed alignment to the highest level of accuracy. Extensive instrumentation has been done throughout the underground stretch and continuous online and real-time monitoring is done by a team of dedicated experts to ensure safety during TBM operation.

The TBM – Gomti successfully constructed this tunnel below the dense city centre areas of Sachivalaya (the Secretariat area) and Hazratganj (Heritage Building area) without any disturbance to the buildings, public utilities and traffic on the land above. LMRC and TATA Projects have accomplished the difficult mission of not affecting the working of commercial establishments even for a day while tunnelling beneath them.

Birla Edutech – Transforming the Education Landscape

 

Mumbai-based Yash Birla Group, one of the renowned industrial corporations in India is known for its gamut of business interests and also its numerous philanthropic initiatives that work towards the larger interests of society. One of the most noteworthy initiatives of Mr. Yash Birla has been his vision of establishing an invaluable academic system; one that encompasses a fine blend of global academic practices along with India’s unique knowledge systems to revolutionize the teaching process in a manner that students rise above run-of-the-mill teaching of traditional schools and emerge equipped to take on the future and make a meaningful difference to society.

Birla Edutech Limited – a Yash Birla Group company – seeks to become pedagogic transformers for students across all educational sections. It promises to build a uniting and progressive culture that takes into consideration all aspects of a society’s well-being, be it social responsibilities, environment health or economic stability. The mission of Birla Edutech is to nurture young minds, assist them to tap their innovative and creative spirits, and enhance their skills to become examples for future generations.

Birla Edutech’s foray into the education space dates back to 2009 and today it stands tall with a successful network of 56 educational institutions across India and a student strength of more than 6000. Their various schools cater across all segments of the academic world viz; preschool, K-12 school, sports education and vocational or technological education, and also focuses on the development of Teacher Enrichment Resource Centers for their staff, for students to avail of superior quality education. Mr. Yash Birla’s son, Mr. Nirvaan Birla, who took over the reins of their education initiatives at a very young age, is focused on revolutionizing the education process for all students in this institute in a manner that they pursue their preferred choice of education and hone their latent skills to become specialists in their field of interests. Inspired by none other than his father, Mr. Nirvaan Birla has carved out an innovative path for Birla Edutech by introducing innovative learning methods, an integrated and holistic learning approach to provide quality education.

Inclusive learning

The ambitious vision of school managements to make inclusive education the mantra in their schools needs to be equally shared by the ground staff i.e. the teachers who are expected to work on a day-to-day basis with these students and who are ill-equipped to take this theory ahead. True transformation takes place only when the teachers are well equipped and trained.

Transformations also take place when visionaries not only believe in the concept of inclusion but also work towards it religiously. One such visionary, Mr. Yash Birla, began his journey towards the implementation of his beliefs by ensuring that the process of inclusion was carried out systemically in all his group schools beginning with his flagship school, ‘Gopi Birla Memorial School’ in Mumbai. This implementation is clearly reflected in the success stories of children securing extraordinary grades in the CBSE Grade X and XII board exams. The exemplary efforts and results of these students speak volumes about the commendable work being done not only by the school management and teachers but also the parents who have worked dedicatedly to support their child despite all odds. Taking this vision forward, Mr. Birla has successfully initiated and implemented the systems and processes of inclusion education in all the group schools under Birla Edutech Ltd.

Technology 

Today, conventional teaching methods are easily getting replaced with technologically advanced educational tools and equipment to raise the bar for quality education. Keeping up with the trend, Birla Edutech, one of the leading preschools and K12 chains of schools in India, has introduced a revolutionary 3D-virtual classroom at its Gopi Birla Memorial School in Mumbai. It is a 3D stereoscopic academic video program, especially designed to reduce complexity of learning subjects such as mathematics and science for all students i.e. from kindergarten to grade 12. The one-of-its-kind, educational solution encompasses pioneering 3D curriculum content and an e-library feature with online and offline availability. A self-curated comprehensive and interactive 3D content is user-friendly and compatible with all platforms.

Mr. Yash Birla believes it’s important to replace the conventional teaching methods with modern pedagogy, in order to uplift the stature of education. The innovative learning module will also equip teachers with the high-quality learning content, which will increase the educational effectiveness resulting in better learning experience for the students.

Through all its education ventures, Birla Edutech Limited promises to enrich the lives of all individuals who get associated with it – anxious parents, enthusiastic students, master instructors, aspiring individuals, future world leaders and concerned citizens. Commitment and passion form the foundation of Birla Edutech Limited which aims to contribute to society, the economy and the environment, accept new challenges and consistently work towards ensuring a quality future to every child on Indian soil.

The ApiFix Spinal Implant Receives TGA Certification

ApiFix, a portfolio company of The Trendlines Group,received TGA certification through its distributor Orthotech Pty. Ltd. to begin marketing the ApiFix system in Australia for the treatment and correction of Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) using an innovative, minimally invasive surgical approach.

The ApiFix system represents a breakthrough treatment for Adolescent Idiopathic Scoliosis (AIS) as it is a minimally invasive, non-fusion spinal implant system which dramatically improves the quality of life of patients who undergo scoliosis surgery. Additionally, it saves hospitalization and OR time, and is considerably more cost-effective than current scoliosis surgery.

“Incorporating the ApiFix system into our portfolio of products fits our mission to bring exceptional, unique, state-of the-art orthopedic products into the Australasian market. The ApiFix system provides game-changing technology for AIS patients and surgeons alike and we’re proud to include them in our suite of products,” commented Sam Scott-Young, Managing Director of Orthotech.

Standard scoliosis surgical correction is a highly invasive, lengthy procedure involving a long recovery period, and resulting in a rigid spine due to fusion of the vertebrae. The ApiFix approach brings an ingenious solution with its minimally invasive, non-fusion spinal implant system, inserted in a short procedure, followed by a brief recovery period, and maintains spine flexibility.

ApiFix CEO Eran Feldhay, M.D. remarked: “The certification for the ApiFix product by the TGA through our distribution partnership with Orthotech allows us to expand our reach and provide treatment for AIS patients in Australia too. We look forward to working with a company like Orthotech who are committed to innovative orthopaedic solutions for their customers.”

About ApiFix

ApiFix is an innovation-driven medical device company focused on providing less invasive solutions for scoliosis patients. ApiFix’s leading product for non-fusion treatment of adolescent idiopathic scoliosis (AIS) is used today in Europe. ApiFix is led by a team of highly-regarded spine surgeons and veteran spine specialists. The company has CE clearance and is marketed in GermanyItalyGreeceThe NetherlandsSpain and Israel.

ApiFix principals will attend the annual meeting of the Scoliosis Research Society, (SRS) in Philadelphia, USA on September 5-8 to present the ApiFix system, clinical cases and their follow-up to potential users from all over the world.

Cautionary Statement Regarding Forward-Looking Statements

Except for historical information, the matters discussed in this press release are forward-looking statements within the meaning of the U.S. Private Securities Litigation Reform Act of 1995.  These statements relate to, among other things, future prospects, developments and business strategies and involve certain risks and uncertainties.  The words “anticipate,” “believe,” “could,” “will,” “plan,” “expect” and “would” and similar terms and phrases, including references to assumptions, have been used in this press release to identify forward-looking statements.  These forward-looking statements are made based on management’s expectations and beliefs concerning future events affecting Orbotech and are subject to uncertainties and factors relating to Orbotech’s operations and business environment, all of which are difficult to predict and many of which are beyond the Company’s control.  Many factors could cause the actual results to differ materially from those projected including, without limitation, cyclicality in the industries in which the Company operates, the Company’s production capacity, timing and occurrence of product acceptance (the Company defines ‘bookings’ and ‘backlog’ as purchase arrangements with customers that are based on mutually agreed terms, which, in some cases for bookings and backlog, may still be subject to completion of written documentation and may be changed or cancelled by the customer, often without penalty), fluctuations in product mix, within and among divisions, worldwide economic conditions generally, especially in the industries in which the Company operates, the timing and strength of product and service offerings by the Company and its competitors, changes in business or pricing strategies, changes in the prevailing political and regulatory framework in which the relevant parties operate, including as a result of the ‘Brexit’ process and administration change in the United States, or in economic or technological trends or conditions, including currency fluctuations, inflation and consumer confidence, on a global, regional or national basis, the level of consumer demand for sophisticated devices such as smartphones, tablets and other electronic devices as well as automobiles, the Company’s global operations and its ability to comply with varying legal, regulatory, exchange, tax and customs regimes, the timing and outcome of tax audits, including the ongoing audit of tax years 2012-2014 in Israel (see below), the Company’s ability to achieve strategic initiatives, including related to its acquisition strategy, the Company’s debt and corporate financing activities; the final timing and outcome, and impact of the criminal matter and ongoing investigation in Korea, including any impact on existing or future business opportunities in Korea and elsewhere, any civil actions related to the Korean matter brought by third parties, including the Company’s customers, which may result in monetary judgments or settlements, expenses associated with the Korean matter, and ongoing or increased hostilities in Israel and the surrounding areas.  In addition, in May 2017 the Company received a $58 million assessment from the Israel Tax Authority with respect to the ongoing tax audit in Israel.  The Company believes that it has provided adequately for any reasonably foreseeable outcomes related to the tax audit; however, future results may include unfavorable material adjustments to estimated tax liabilities in the period when the assessment is resolved or the audit is closed.  In addition, the Israel Tax Authority is investigating the Company’s tax positions.  Given that the process is in its preliminary stages, the Company cannot assure the outcome or timing of completion of the assessment process or investigation, including the amount of tax ultimately payable, and additional penalties, criminal sanctions, fines and other amounts that may be imposed as a result of the assessment and investigation, which may be material in amount or in adverse impact on the Company’s results of operations, financial position and reputation.  The outcome may also impact the Company’s results of operations as a result of tax positions taken for subsequent fiscal years.  Furthermore, during the second quarter of 2017, the Company elected to implement certain provisions of the Israeli Law for the Encouragement of Capital Investments related to preferred enterprises in Israel.  Although the Company is unable to predict the precise impact of this tax election, it believes the tax election will be beneficial over the long term and it does not expect that the tax election will result in a material increase in its effective tax rate for 2017.  The foregoing information should be read in connection with the Company’s Annual Report on Form 20-F for the year ended December 31, 2016, and subsequent SEC filings.  The Company is subject to the foregoing and other risks detailed in those reports.  The Company assumes no obligation to update the information in this press release to reflect new information, future events or otherwise, except as required by law.
