The ELO system, which most chess federations use today, ranks players by the results of their games. Although simple and efficient, it overlooks relevant criteria such as the quality of the moves players actually make. To overcome these limitations, Jean-Marc Alliot of the Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse (IRIT - CNRS/INP Toulouse/Université Toulouse Paul Sabatier/Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès/Université Toulouse Capitole) demonstrates a new system, published on 24 April 2017 in the International Computer Games Association Journal.

The ELO system, which most chess federations use today, ranks players by the results of their games. Although simple and efficient, it overlooks relevant criteria such as the quality of the moves players actually make. To overcome these limitations, Jean-Marc Alliot of the Institut de recherche en informatique de Toulouse (IRIT -- CNRS/INP Toulouse/Université Toulouse Paul Sabatier/Université Toulouse Jean Jaurès/Université Toulouse Capitole) demonstrates a new system, published on 24 april 2017 in the International Computer Games Association Journal. Since the 1970s, the system designed by the Hungarian, Arpad Elo, has been ranking chess players according to the result of their games. The best players have the highest ranking, and the difference in ELO points between two players predicts the probability of either player winning a given game. If players perform better or worse than predicted, they either gain or lose points accordingly. This method does not take into account the quality of the moves played during a game and is therefore unable to reliably rank players who have played at different periods. Jean-Marc Alliot suggests a direct ranking of players based on the quality of their actual moves. His system computes the difference between the move actually played and the move that would have been selected by the best chess program to date, Stockfish. Running on the OSIRIM supercomputer[1], this program executes almost perfect moves. Starting with those of Wilhelm Steinitz (1836-1900), all 26,000 games played since then by chess world champions have been processed in order to create a probabilistic model for each player. For each position, the model estimates the probability of making a mistake, and the magnitude of the mistake. These models can then be used to compute the win/draw/lose probability for any given match between two players. The predictions have proven not only to be extremely close to the actual results when players have played concrete games against one another, they also fare better than those based on ELO scores. The results demonstrate that the level of chess players has been steadily increasing. The current world champion, Magnus Carlsen, tops the list, while Bobby Fischer is third. Under current conditions, this new ranking method cannot immediately replace the ELO system, which is easier to set up and implement. However, increases in computing power will make it possible to extend the new method to an ever-growing pool of players in the near future.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--TriLinc Global Impact Fund (“TriLinc” or the “Company”) announced today that it recently approved $28.4 million in term loan and trade finance transactions with companies operating in Sub-Saharan Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia. The transaction details are summarized below. TriLinc is an impact investing fund that provides growth-stage loans and trade finance to established small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in developing economies where access to affordable capital is significantly limited. Impact Investing is defined as investing with the specific objective of achieving a competitive financial return as well as creating positive, measurable impact in communities across the globe. TriLinc recently approved $28.4 million in term loan and trade finance transactions which meet the Company’s requirements for underwriting, economic development, and societal advancement, as described below: Between March 1 and March 29, 2017, TriLinc funded five separate transactions, totaling $339,675, as part of an existing $2,500,000 revolving trade finance facility with a family-owned Uruguayan citrus producer that specializes in growing, processing, packing, and exporting citrus fruits, juice concentrate, and essential oils. The borrower is certified under the guidelines of Tesco Nurture and Unilever’s sustainable agriculture code, demonstrating its commitment to operating in an environmentally responsible manner. With a fixed rate of 9.00%, the transactions are set to mature between February 3 and March 24, 2018, and are secured by inventory.

Priced at 9.50%, the transactions are set to mature between May 9 and August 7, 2017, and are secured by inventory and accounts receivable. TriLinc’s financing will support the borrower’s job creation efforts, as the borrower anticipates that it will increase its processing capacity by 30% in the next three years, requiring another work shift and a substantial increase in its workforce. The borrower is dedicated to the wellbeing of its employees, as shown by its offering of extensive training programs upon hiring, and performing human resource studies to measure the happiness and efficiency of its employees. On March 7, 2017, the Company funded $100,000 as part of an existing senior secured purchase order revolving credit facility to a Peruvian diaper manufacturer. Priced at 12.00%, the transaction will mature on July 28, 2021. The borrower anticipates that TriLinc’s financing will support efforts in expanding its distribution network to continue offering high quality products to low-income families throughout Peru. Between March 8 and March 21, 2017, TriLinc funded two separate transactions, totaling $12,000,000, as part of two separate $6,000,000 revolving trade finance facilities with an Argentinian oilseed distributor, priced at 8.75% and 9.00%, respectively. Secured by specific purchase contracts and receivables, both transactions are set to mature between August 31, 2017 and February 22, 2018.

The Brazil dental implant fixtures and final abutments market is expected to increase to reach $489 million by 2023 VANCOUVER, BC--(Marketwired - March 01, 2017) - According to a new series of reports on the Brazilian dental implant fixture and final abutment market by iData Research (www.idataresearch.com), despite price competition among local, inexpensive brands, the market is growing at a double-digit rate. These companies spend far less on marketing and research and development than major international implant manufacturers, allowing them to remain profitable while selling implants at far lower prices. Implants from major international companies sell at a premium in Brazil due to their branding power, but their market share is limited because few dentists are willing or able to pay the premium. As such, even the large international players have engaged in price cuts to compete with the vast assortment of more affordable, local alternatives. "While prices in Brazil are expected to increase slightly, the low average selling price (ASP) of the Brazilian market significantly limits the overall size of the market," explains Jeffrey Wong, Strategic Analyst Manager at iData Research. "The emergence and dominance of the smaller competitors appealing to the public through their attractive product offerings and affordable prices has prompted investments and acquisitions from international competitors, such as Straumann." Off-label sales represent an ongoing sales scheme that commonly transpires across Brazil. Offered by what has been described as "copy-cat brands", these dental implants are labeled as generic or bioequivalent to premium implants. By promising to deliver premium quality at a much lower price, off-label products are able to attract a large customer base. Off-label sales will continue to be a significant corner of the Brazilian dental implant fixture market as price sensitivity remains a major concern. In contrast, the CAD/CAM abutment market in Brazil is faring better and has been demonstrating significant growth, despite being relatively expensive and inaccessible when compared to stock and custom cast abutments. As adjunctive techniques, software and available materials become more affordable and developed; the use of CAD/CAM abutments in Brazil will gradually become more prevalent. A rising unit share of CAD/CAM abutments is expected to bring about overall ASP increases in Brazil, thereby facilitating growth of the final abutment market. The dental implant fixture and final abutment markets in Brazil are largely controlled by four main competitors: Neodent, S.I.N., Straumann and Conexão. Tariffs and expenses preventing the market entry of premium brands facilitate the continued preference and prevalence of local companies. Therefore, downward price pressure and the persistence of low-cost competitors could potentially offset gains in unit sales. However, increasing ASPs are preventing this from occurring. Additional competitors in the Brazil dental implant market include Anthogyr, Bicon, BioImplants, Bionnovation, DentoFlex Dental Laboratory, DENTSPLY Implants, DÉRIG, DSP Biomedical, Emfils, FGM, Globtek Implant System, Implacil de Bortoli, Intra-Lock, Intraoss, Nobel Biocare, Serson Implant, Signo Vinces, Sistema INP, Systhex, Titanium Fix and Zimmer Biomet among others. More on the dental implant market in Brazil can be found in a series of reports published by iData Research entitled the Brazil Market Report Suite on Dental Implant Fixtures and Final Abutments. The suite covers reports on the following markets: dental implant fixtures, final abutments, treatment planning software and surgical guides.

LOS ANGELES--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Fifth paragraph, first sentence of the release dated February 16, 2017, should read: Between January 4, 2017 and January 31, 2017, the Company funded ten separate transactions, totaling $6,780,000 as part of an existing $6,000,000 revolving trade finance facility with an Ecuadorian shrimp exporter, whose local suppliers of farm-raised shrimp are all licensed by INP, an Ecuadorian institute specialized in biological, technological and economic research aimed at the management and development of fisheries (instead of "Between January 4, 2017 and January 31, 2017, the Company funded ten separate transactions, totaling $6,780,000 as part of an existing $6,000,000 revolving trade finance facility with an Ecuadorian shrimp exporter, whose local suppliers of farm-raised shrimp are all licensed by the National Fisheries Institute, a global non-profit organization dedicated to promoting seafood safety, sustainability and nutrition."). TRILINC GLOBAL IMPACT FUND SURPASSES $500 MILLION IN INVESTMENTS IN AFRICA, LATIN AMERICA, AND SOUTHEAST ASIA TriLinc Global Impact Fund announced today that it has funded an excess of $500 million in total aggregate investments since inception. During January alone, TriLinc has approved an additional $25.8 million in term loan and trade finance facilities to companies operating in Latin America and Sub-Saharan Africa, bringing total financing commitments as of January 31, 2017 to $270.1 million for business expansion and socioeconomic development through its holdings in Africa, Latin America, and Southeast Asia. TriLinc Global Impact Fund (“TriLinc” or the “Company”) announced today that it has funded an excess of $500 million in total aggregate investments, since inception, across 20 countries and 38 sectors through its global network of institutional-class sub-advisors. TriLinc is an impact investing fund that provides growth-stage loans and trade finance to established small and medium enterprises (“SMEs”) in developing economies where access to affordable capital is significantly limited. Impact Investing is defined as investing with the specific objective of achieving a competitive financial return as well as creating positive, measurable impact in communities across the globe. TriLinc recently approved $25.8 million in term loan and trade finance transactions which meet the Company’s requirements for underwriting, economic development, and societal advancement, as described below: On January 4, 2017, the Company funded $14,850,000 as part of a new $15,000,000 senior secured four-year term loan to a Namibian property developer. Priced at 12.50%, the term loan is set to mature on August 15, 2021 and is secured by a second-lien mortgage on the land bank. The company initially prepares the land by installing the necessary infrastructure, such as water piping, sewage, storm water reticulation, electric grid connections, road pavement, and street lighting, after which the property is sold to small- and medium-sized developers and individuals for residential and commercial construction. This project caters to middle-income individuals, many of whom are first-time home buyers. The borrower’s efforts seek to address the middle-income housing shortage that currently exists in Windhoek due to the steady increase in urbanization, combined with geographical hindrances. All of the company’s property development land acquisition meets the International Finance Corporation’s Performance Standards, as well as the company’s proprietary environmental management system. Between January 4, 2017 and January 31, 2017, the Company funded ten separate transactions, totaling $6,780,000 as part of an existing $6,000,000 revolving trade finance facility with an Ecuadorian shrimp exporter, whose local suppliers of farm-raised shrimp are all licensed by INP, an Ecuadorian institute specialized in biological, technological and economic research aimed at the management and development of fisheries. With a fixed interest rate of 9.25%, the transactions are set to mature on June 6, 2017. The financings are secured by inventory, accounts receivable, and purchase contracts. The company uses state-of-the-art, cost-efficient cooling and freezing equipment to preserve the quality of their product and reduce their environmental footprint. TriLinc’s financing will support the borrower’s position as the seventh-largest shrimp exporter in Ecuador, strengthening the company’s ability to offer competitive wages, health services, and childcare support to its employees. On January 13, 2017, the Company funded $167,578 as part of an existing $9,000,000 senior secured trade finance facility to an energy efficient Moroccan-based scrap metal recycler and processor that sources its product from local micro, small, and medium size suppliers. With an interest rate of one month Libor +10.50%, the transaction is secured by inventory and receivables and is set to mature on July 17, 2017. It is anticipated that TriLinc’s financing will support the borrower’s strategy in growing its employee base as the main employer where it operates, while increasing its market access as one of the only local companies engaged in the full value chain of processing recycled scrap metal into finished goods for local use and regional export. Between January 19, 2017 and January 25, 2017, the Company funded two separate transactions, totaling $4,038,873, as part of a new $5,000,000 revolving trade finance facility with a Dolphin-Safe certified Ecuadorian tuna processor and exporter.
