MEF and Juniper Research whitepaper analyses the emergence of the user-centric data value-exchange LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM--(Marketwired - November 17, 2016) - A concept that could completely change the way people manage their digital lives is profiled in a free report by Juniper Research for the Mobile Ecosystem Forum. The study outlines the Personal Data Economy: an idea that puts individuals in control of their personal information and allows them to share it with trusted third parties on their own terms. At present, most personal data is held in silos by third parties. This can lead to concerns over privacy or security scares. It is also inefficient. If a person wants to retrieve their health records, for example, it is typically a painful process. A user-centric personal data economy, says the whitepaper, aims to address these challenges. Data is under the control of the individual and stored locally or on a cloud of choice. This means it will always be accurate and up to date helping individuals take control of their digital lives, empowering better decisions and even selling their own data where there is a trusted value-exchange. The report argues that the personal data economy also benefits companies identifying four key opportunities: The study cites the forthcoming European General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) as a key driver for the personal data economy, which puts emphasis on consent, transparency and giving individuals more control. It shares some of the live trials that are helping brands, telcos, enterprises and governments understand the opportunities and complexities of new business models based on data. It also profiles the start-ups offering personal information management services (PIMS) and innovative ways of identification. MEF's CEO Rimma Perelmuter said: "New data protection regulation such as GDPR enables new revenue opportunities and is driving innovation that empowers consumers. The Personal Data Economy which puts the individual in control is an incredibly exciting arena and set to be a game-changer. We're delighted to have partnered with Juniper Research to deliver a comprehensive guide which illuminates this burgeoning market." The complimentary whitepaper, 'Understanding The Personal Data Economy', is available to download from the MEF website. Juniper Research provides research and analytical services to the global hi-tech communications sector, providing consultancy, analyst reports and industry commentary.

John Friedlander of the University of Toronto and Henryk Iwaniec of Rutgers University will receive the 2017 AMS Joseph L. Doob Prize. The two are honored for their book Opera de Cribro (AMS, 2010). The prime numbers, the building blocks of the whole numbers, have fascinated humankind for millennia. While it has been known since the time of Euclid that the number of primes is infinite, exactly how they are distributed among the whole numbers is still not understood. The Latin title of the prizewinning book by Friedlander and Iwaniec could be translated as A Laborious Work Around the Sieve, where in this context a "sieve" is a mathematical tool for sifting prime numbers out of sets of whole numbers. The Sieve of Eratosthenes, dating from the third century BC, is a simple, efficient method to produce a table of prime numbers. For a long time, it was the only way to study the mysterious sequence of the primes. In the early 20th century, improvements came through the work of Norwegian mathematician Viggo Brun, who combined the Sieve of Eratosthenes with ideas from combinatorics. Tools from another branch of mathematics, complex analysis, came into play through the work of English mathematicians G.H. Hardy and J.E. Littlewood, and of the iconic Indian mathematician Srinivasa Ramanujan (protagonist of the 2016 film The Man Who Knew Infinity). For 30 years, Brun's method and its refinements were the main tools in sieve theory. Then, in 1950, another Norwegian mathematician, Atle Selberg, put forward a new, simple, and elegant method. As his method was independent of that of Brun, the combination of the two gave rise to deep new results. The latter part of the 20th century saw the proof of many profound results on classical prime-number questions that had previously been considered inaccessible. Among these was a formula for the number of primes representable as the sum of a square and of a fourth power, obtained by Friedlander and Iwaniec in 1998. With these developments, the time was ripe for a new book dealing with prime-number sieves and the techniques needed for their applications. Written by two of the top masters of the subject, Opera de Cribro is an insightful and comprehensive presentation of the theory and application of sieves. In addition to providing the latest technical background and results, the book looks to the future by raising new questions, giving partial answers, and indicating new ways of approaching the problems. With high-quality writing, clear explanations, and numerous examples, the book helps readers understand the subject in depth. "These features distinguish this unique monograph from anything that had been written before on the subject and lift it to the level of a true masterpiece," the prize citation says. The two prizewinners collaborated on an expository article on number sieves, "What is the Parity Phenomenon?", which appeared in the August 2009 issue of the AMS Notices. Born in Toronto, John Friedlander received his BSc from the University of Toronto and his MA from the University of Waterloo. In 1972, he earned his PhD at Pennsylvania State University under the supervision of S. Chowla. His first position was that of assistant to Atle Selberg at the Institute for Advanced Study. After further positions at IAS, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology, the Scuola Normale Superiore in Pisa, and the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, he returned to the University of Toronto as a faculty member in 1980. He was Mathematics Department Chair from 1987 to 1991 and since 2002 has been University Professor of Mathematics. He was awarded the Jeffery-Williams Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Society (1999) and the CRM-Fields (currently CRM-Fields-PIMS) Prize of the Canadian Mathematical Institutes (2002). He gave an invited lecture at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Zurich in 1994. He is a Fellow of the Royal Society of Canada, a Founding Fellow of the Fields Institute, and a Fellow of the AMS. Born in Elblag, Poland, Henryk Iwaniec graduated from Warsaw University in 1971 and received his PhD in 1972. In 1976 he defended his habilitation thesis at the Institute of Mathematics of the Polish Academy of Sciences and was elected to member correspondent. He left Poland in 1983 to take visiting positions in the USA, including long stays at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton. In 1987, he was appointed to his present position as New Jersey State Professor of Mathematics at Rutgers University. He was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences (1995), the US National Academy of Sciences (2006), and the Polska Akademia Umiejetnosci (2006, foreign member). He has received numerous prizes including the Sierpinski Medal (1996), the Ostrowski Prize (2001, shared with Richard Taylor and Peter Sarnak), the AMS Cole Prize in Number Theory (2002, shared with Richard Taylor), the AMS Steele Prize for Mathematical Exposition (2011), the Banach Medal of the Polish Academy of Sciences (2015), and the Shaw Prize in Mathematical Sciences (2015, shared with Gerd Faltings). He was an invited speaker at the International Congress of Mathematicians in Helsinki (1978), Berkeley (1986), and Madrid (2006). Presented every three years, the AMS Doob Prize recognizes a single, relatively recent, outstanding research book that makes a seminal contribution to the research literature, reflects the highest standards of research exposition, and promises to have a deep and long-term impact in its area. The prize will be awarded Thursday, January 5, 2017, at the Joint Mathematics Meetings in Atlanta. Find out more about AMS prizes and awards at http://www. . Founded in 1888 to further mathematical research and scholarship, today the American Mathematical Society fulfills its mission through programs and services that promote mathematical research and its uses, strengthen mathematical education, and foster awareness and appreciation of mathematics and its connections to other disciplines and to everyday life.

25(OH) Vitamin D is the circulating form of vitamin D which is measurable in the blood. There is evidence of aberrations in the vitamin D-endocrine system in obese subjects. Vitamin D insufficiency has been defined as serum 25-hydroxyvitamin D [25(OH)] levels below 30 ng/mL and is common among patients with obesity. Our aim was to investigate clinically the status of 25(OH) vitamin D in obesity. Serum 25(OH) vitamin D and body mass index [body mass index (BMI; in kg/m2) ≥ 30] were determined in 50 healthy Obese individuals attending a community care centre in Chennai, Tamilnadu were recruited for the study. The mean ± SD values for serum 25(OH) D levels of obese with BMI (36 ± 1.77kg/m2) were 25.6±12.6 ng/ml. The results of the study revealed a statistically significant negative correlation between serum 25 (OH) D levels and body mass index was found in obese patients (r=0.243, p<0.01). The association between low serum 25(OH) D levels and higher BMI in study population may be inscribed into the wider context portraying Obesity - associated vitamin D insufficiency is likely due to the decreased bioavailability of 25(OH) vitamin D3 from cutaneous and dietary sources, because of its deposition in body fat compartments.

Objective: To determine the residents' rating of the quality of their residency training by measuring their level of satisfaction with the various educational attributes of their training. Study Design: Cross-sectional survey. Place and Duration of Study: Department of Medical Education (DME), Pakistan Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS), Islamabad, from September to November 2008. Methodology: Residents who had been pursuing residency training for over a period of one year were included. A comprehensive questionnaire consisting of 14 questions was employed which covered fundamental attributes of the quality of postgraduate training. A five point response scale was used to rate responses to questions. Results for each of the measures of all the included residents were added up, and then an average was calculated and scaled to a score out of 100 to form the Index Score. In this way the residents' level of agreement or disagreement with the questioned statement was measured from 'Strongly disagree' (0%) to 'Strongly agree' (100%). Results: Out of a total of 150 residents contacted, 109 answered the questionnaire. The response rate was thus 73%. Residents variably rated the various educational attributes of their residency training. Relatively favourably rated areas included regular conduct of case/ topic discussions (75.96%), consultant's supervision during interventional procedures (70.27%) and regularly holding journal clubs (69.54%). The less favourably rated areas included constructive feedback by supervisor (54.49%), consultant as role model (54.49%) and faculty as the source of learning (50.82%). Overall, the Index Score was 60.55%. Conclusion: Significant room exists for improvement in the quality of residency training as indicated by the less than desirable ratings of the various educational attributes of the residency programme. Faculty members who constitute the cornerstone of educational process are pivotal to effect the desired improvements.

Objective: To assess the pharmacovigilance awareness among the healthcare professionals in a teaching hospital in Northern India. Material and Methods: A questionnaire which was suitable for assessing the basic Knowledge, Attitude and the Practice (KAP) of pharmacovigilance was designed and distributed among 100 doctors of the Punjab Institute of Medical Sciences (PIMS) Hospital, Jalandhar, Punjab, India. Results: Among the 100 doctors, 61 responded. The data was analyzed by using the SPSS statistical software. Although 77% of the subjects knew the term 'pharmacovigilance', only 59% were aware of the existence of the National Pharmacovigilance Program. 23% volunteered to reports Adverse Drug Reactions (ADRs), but more than 60% doctors did not know how and where to report the ADRs. Conclusion: There is a need for a regular training and the re-enforcement for the ADR reporting among the health care personnel. The perception of the reporting process being tedious, the lack of time, a poor knowledge on the reporting mechanism and inadequate expertise seemed to be the main reasons for not reporting the ADRs. A majority of the respondents suggested regular training sessions on a priority basis for the success of the pharmacovigilance program and for the better clinical management of the patients in general.

Introduction: Neurovascular variations in the upper limb are common and they are well documented. An accurate knowledge of the normal and the variant anatomy of the median nerve and the median artery are important for clinical procedures and for vascular surgeries. The persistant median artery is one such anomaly which was seen in 6.6% (4) of the 60 upper limbs which were dissected in the present study, it being bilateral in one cadaver. Material and Methods: The present study was conducted on 60 upper limbs of 30 cadavers at the Government Medical College, Amritsar, India. The whole course of the median nerve and the persistant median artery was exposed. Results: In all the 4 variant limbs, the persistent median artery originated from the anterior interrosseous artery and terminated in the incomplete mediano- ulnar type of the superficial palmar arch. In three upper limbs, the persistant median artery simply accompanied the median nerve upto the palm. But in the left upper limb of the cadaver with the bilateral variation, the artery penetrated and divided the nerve into two halves which joined to form a neural loop around the artery. Thereafter, the nerve and the artery followed the same course upto the palm. Such a penetration of the median nerve by the persistent median artery is extremely rare. Further, its ontogeny and clinical implications have been discussed in detail.

Water pumps are one of the most important mechanical devices with application in several industries and households. Growing urbanization and industrialization in the developing countries and increasing use of water pumps in industries is driving the demand of water pumps market globally. Based on end user applications, water pumps are categorized under four segments namely industrial water pump, municipal water pump, agricultural water pump, and domestic water pump. Based on technology, the two categories of water pump are centrifugal water pump and positive displacement design. Centrifugal water pumps are used widely in buildings, wells, fire protection system and hot water circulation in industries, whereas positive displacement design type water pumps are used in hydraulic systems. Positive displacement design pumps are further segmented as reciprocating, metering, and rotary pumps. Positive displacement design pumps are generally larger than centrifugal pumps of equal-capacity. Asia Pacific is the largest market for water pumps followed by Europe and North America. Asia Pacific has the highest growth rate in the water pumps market, mainly due to surge in infrastructural developments in developing countries such as India and China. On the basis of product segments, centrifugal water pumps hold majority of the market share and is expected to grow further with steady rate owing to increasing demand from industries such as oil and gas and municipalities. By end user application, industrial water pumps had the largest market share in 2013 in the water pumps market. Industrial water pumps are also growing at a high rate due to increasing industrialization in growing Asia Pacific countries where oil and gas industry are the major end users of water pumps. The increasing number of water recycling and water waste treatment plants, especially in India and China, is fuelling the water pumps market in Asia pacific. New technologies, such as intelligent pump system, in the water pump industry have been extending their cost benefits to the users. Apart from water circulation, water pumps find their usage in several household applications including in-house water fountain, gardening, and water coolers. However, certain factors are restraining the water pumps market which includes the growing threat from unorganized players in Asia Pacific, especially in the agricultural domain. The poor farmers in the developing countries are price sensitive and prefer to buy low-priced water pumps instead of reputed brands. The global water pumps market is advancing towards consolidation with a number of mergers and acquisitions (M&A) taking place globally. The acquisition of Finder Pompe SpA by Dover, acquisition of Alaska Pump & Supply Inc. by DXP Enterprises and acquisition of PIMS Group by Xylem, are some of the major acquisitions that took place in 2013. Recently in 2014, Saudi Pump Factory, the largest pump manufacturer in the gulf region sold its 75% stake to Sulzer Ltd. These inorganic expansions of companies are reducing the industry rivalry in the water pump market.
