Today, ShipperHQ and Australia Post announced an integration that will empower Australian ecommerce retailers to configure more accurate shipping options that reflect the best value for their business and their customers. This integration benefits retailers by making it simple to show many of the world-class logistics services offered by Australia Post and StarTrack on the retailer’s ecommerce website in real time without the need for any custom development or coding. Plus, with enterprise-grade functionality, ShipperHQ gives merchants the tools they need to be confident that the right rates and options are shown to every customer, every time. The partnership with Australia Post will help retailers save cost and time managing their shipping rates, and give their customers the opportunity to receive service from the largest retail network in Australia. Australia Post provides reliable and affordable postal services to more than 80% of Australian residents and with ShipperHQ these services can easily be customized to fit retailer’s needs. This allows retailers to increase profits, decrease cart abandonment, and offer more diverse shipping options and promotions than their competition. ShipperHQ was built to handle the most complex shipping requirements and makes it easy to discount or surcharge live and custom rates, ship perishables, ship oversize packages and freight, and set rules to show special shipping options based on predetermined criteria. Advanced functionality includes allowing retailers to offer options for store pickup, dropship from multiple locations, displaying the estimated delivery date, allowing customers to select their preferred delivery date/time slot, etc. “Competitive shipping rates and options are proven to be a key consideration of online buyers. Likewise retailers need to understand the best way to ship and where they can offer promotions, where items will be expensive and to which zones, especially in a country as large as Australia,” says Karen, CEO and Founder of ShipperHQ. “By bringing together the logistics expertise of Australia Post and StarTrack with the powerful functionality within ShipperHQ, retailers have control over exactly what options their customers see and how much they charge for them plus the confidence that the order will arrive at their customer’s door exactly as they intend it to.” ShipperHQ and Australia Post have and will continue to work together to give retailers the ability to enhance their checkout with the rates and options their customers expect all while providing the delivery services they need. Currently, this offering is available on Magento, BigCommerce, Shopify and WooCommerce, with further platform integrations planned in 2017.

PURPOSE OF REVIEW: Involuntary treatment is burdened by the lack of evidence. One of the challenges is the difference in practice across borders in Europe. While reviewing the current literature, a proposal of monitoring guidelines is discussed. RECENT FINDINGS: The field is characterized by a small number of dedicated researchers. A study of violence in first-episode psychosis shows that differences in criteria for involuntary admission lead to different prognosis for the patients. The most recent contributions from the cross-national EUNOMIA study point to great variation across countries, regarding frequencies of involuntary admission as well as outcome. The EUNOMIA study provides suggestions for good quality in involuntary admission. A Cochrane review has examined the evidence of involuntary community treatment compared with standard treatment. The effectiveness of involuntary community treatment is limited. The review concludes that the benefits for a small number of patients are outweighed by the high numbers needed to treat in terms of avoided re-admission. SUMMARY: Despite pioneering work, involuntary treatment is still caught up in tradition. There is a lack of standard and proof of effectiveness. A proposal of monitoring guidelines for involuntary measures is a first step to improve the situation. © 2012 Wolters Kluwer Health | Lippincott Williams &Wilkins.

SAN FRANCISCO, Feb. 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Researchers associated with five institutes in Australia  looked at whether any commercially-available brain training apps actually help with healthy aging, and found that BrainHQ had far and away the most scientific evidence. Their systematic review of the literature has published in the journal Neuropsychological Review. The authors found that “current evidence supports that at least some commercially available computerized brain training products can assist in promoting healthy brain aging.” The researchers conducted a literature review and a review of the brain-training marketplace.  They identified 18 companies and looked at the scientific claims behind their products. They found that 11 companies had no clinical trials or empirical evidence indicating that they helped with healthy aging. Seven companies marketing computerized brain exercises had products backed by peer-reviewed clinical trials, with formal cognitive outcome measures for healthy adults aged 50 and older. The researchers excluded trials that lacked peer reviewed papers or control groups. This methodology resulted in 26 studies for review. After systematic review, the researchers classified the products of the seven companies into three levels. Level I required at least two well-designed randomized controlled trials or quasi-randomized studies, one of which had to be of high quality. Level II required only one well-designed randomized controlled trial of high quality. Level III required only one moderate/poorly designed randomized controlled trials and other methodological approaches (e.g., internal white paper studies). BrainHQ and CogniFit met the criteria for Level I.  BrainHQ had 10 studies, of which 8 were of high quality, while CogniFit had three studies, of which one was high quality. Cogmed, BrainAge 2 and My Brain Trainer were in Level II, each with one high quality study. Dakim and Lumosity were in Level III, each with one study of moderate quality. “The publication of high quality studies of commercially available programs has really accelerated over the past five years,” said Dr. Ralph Martins, who led the review. “The evidence now supports the notion that the human brain is plastic in later life, and can benefit from properly designed brain training programs.” The researchers found that only BrainHQ exercises, made by Posit Science, were backed by more than one high quality study, noting that “multiple peer-reviewed articles evaluating Posit Science programs have fulfilled the gold standard for clinical trials.” ”This review helps clinicians separate the wheat from the chaff,” said Dr. Henry Mahncke, CEO of Posit Science.  “Finally, there is an independent basis for recommending the program with the most proven efficacy to people concerned about maintaining or improving cognitive performance.” Some of the exercises in BrainHQ are available for free, either by registering at www.brainhq.com or through a download of the BrainHQ app from the Apple App Store. Full access to the dozens of exercises in BrainHQ is available to annual subscribers for $8 per month. Also, many public libraries offer free access to all the exercises in BrainHQ.
