Failing an exam at school, getting rejected for a job or being screamed at by your teacher or superior are only a few examples of situations that may cause despair, disappointment or a sense of failure. Unfortunately, such set-backs are part of anyone's life and can start early-on. However, dealing with adversity throughout a lifetime is a reality that some seem to be managing better than others. Where some give-up or crumble at the sight of a difficulty, others have levels of resilience that allow them to preserver and to stay calm under pressure. This often gives them the cutting edge to draw onto their resources and to readjust as needed while a less resilient person may become emotional, panic and lose control. What makes the difference? First of all, resilience is an acquired skill rather than a fixed character trait. This means that it can be learned and involves working on behaviours, thoughts and actions. This may be easier said than done, especially when it comes to young people that are at high-risk of social exclusion. How can resilience be acquired effectively? In a recent study entitled "Relationship between Resilience and Self-regulation: A Study of Spanish Youth at Risk of Social Exclusion" published in Frontiers in Psychology, Professor Raquel Artuch-Garde from the Universidad Internacional de La Rioja (UNIR) in Spain et.al. analysed whether self-regulation would be a good predictor of resilience. They looked at 365 Spanish students aged 15-21 years, who are marked by academic failure, and who, without the necessary qualifications, find access to the job market later on very much restricted. "We wondered whether these students would survive better in the system if they were prepared to overcome adversity. The research shows the relationship between two essential non-cognitive skills: resilience and self-regulation that are equally or even more important than cognitive aspects in the educational process of students at risk of social exclusion." says Professor Artuch-Garde. In fact, the relationship was significant as learning from mistakes was a major predictor of resilience, in particular coping and confidence, tenacity and adaptation as well as tolerance to negative situations. The study shows that helping these young people to bounce-back from adversities by acquiring self-regulation skills such as setting goals and adjusting their path after a misstep, equips them better to do well in school and in life. The results according to Professor Artuch-Garde illustrate "the importance of working on students' strengths that go beyond the academic or technical areas and which help them to cope positively with the adverse situations that they encounter in their lives." She further concludes "By working on self-regulation skill of students at risk, we encourage their resilient capacity to build an optimistic life plan and to preserver, which in turn reduces drop-out rates that lead to social exclusion."

*Net Sales increase 6.2% versus prior year    *Net Income increases 55.2%    *Diluted Net Income Per Common Share, before dividends $0.07 versus $0.04 in prior year    *Diluted Earnings Per Common Share $0.03 versus $0.01 in prior year SARASOTA, Fla., Nov. 04, 2016 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Uniroyal Global Engineered Products, Inc. ((OTCQB:UNIR) or the “Company”) today reported its financial results for the quarter ended October 2, 2016 compared to the quarter ended October 4, 2015. Net Sales for the third quarter increased 6.2% to $24,675,521, a gain of $1,450,322 versus the prior year, which represented the highest year over year increase for any quarter of this fiscal year.  Included in the reported sales is a negative currency impact of $890,000. Without the currency fluctuation, Net Sales would have increased 10% for the quarter. Sales for the third quarter to the automotive industry (68.0% of total Net Sales) increased 14.4% versus last year due to sharp increases in both Domestic and European operations. “We continue to record strong results in Global automotive sales as product innovation and cost improvement programs are recognized by major OEM’s.  This has resulted in increased market penetration,” noted Howard Curd, Chairman. Sales to the industrial and consumer segments (32.0% of total Net Sales) declined 7.8% versus last year.  Seating applications for industrial equipment manufacturers showed improvement in the quarter after a sluggish first six months, but consumer sales (recreational and residential) declined, impacted by the continued slow Global economic recovery. Net Income Available to Common Shareholders increased to $578,015 versus $139,304 in the prior year quarter, representing a gain of $438,711, or three times greater than that of the previous year.  The increase versus the prior year quarter was due to the improvement in Net Sales and sharply lower General and Administrative expenses. Gross Profit Margins contracted during the third quarter to 21.7% versus 23.2% for the third quarter of the previous year.  The reduction in the margins was primarily caused by a decline in higher margin industrial and consumer sales. Operating Income improved to $1,868,358 for the third quarter of this year versus $1,482,256 for the third quarter of the previous year, a gain of $386,102 or 26.0%.  The principal catalyst for the increase versus the prior year was a sharp reduction in General and Administrative expenses from the previous period.  Certain one-time charges in the third quarter of last year resulted in costs abnormally high for the period.  Current General and Administrative expenses, which are 7.4% of Net Sales for the third quarter, are lower than the nine months at 7.9% of Net Sales. Net Sales for the nine months ended October 2, 2016 were $76,976,985, recording a gain of $490,797, or 0.6%, versus the previous year which was a 40 week period versus 39 weeks for the current nine months period.  The additional week in the prior year period represented approximately $500,000 in Net Sales, negatively impacting on year to year comparisons. Negative currency fluctuations of $1,700,000 also impacted the year to year comparisons. Net Income Available to Common Shareholders for the nine months ended October 2, 2016 (39 weeks) was $2,193,844 as compared to $1,815,796 for the nine months ended October 4, 2015 (40 weeks). The increase of $378,048 versus the previous year is due to improved Gross Profit Margins on Net Sales which more than offset an increase of 2.5% in operating expenses. Gross Profit Margins for the nine months ended October 2, 2016 improved to 23.0% of Net Sales from 21.7% of Net Sales for the nine months ended October 4, 2015, leading to an improvement in Gross Profit of $1,141,047. Global manufacturing efficiencies and lower overall raw material costs were the primary reasons for the Gross Profit improvement. Operating Income for the nine months improved to $6,356,226 from $5,492,864 versus the comparable prior year period for an increase of $863,362 or 15.7%.  The improvement in Gross Profit Margins on Net Sales led to the sharp increase in Operating Income. For further details, see the Consolidated Statements of Operations in the Company’s Form 10-Q filed on November 4, 2016.  The Company will have comments on the quarter in an earning conference call on November 7, 2016 at 9:00 am (EST).  Persons wishing to access the conference call may do so by dialing 888-857-6929 (U.S.) and 719-457-2607 (International), and using the ID #1385906.  Howard F.
