"In the knowledge-based global economy, more and more creators and innovators rely on intellectual property to promote and maintain their global competitive edge," the director of WIPO, Francis Gurry says, "Among the increasing applications for international patents and trademarks, a large number of applicants are Chinese. China is promoting the transition from "made in China "to" created in China", they are making big progress in the process of enterprise internationalization." Compared the ranking of 2016 with that of 2014, we can see that the amount of patent applications is increasing for enterprises such as Alibaba Group, HUAWEI, ZTE Corporation and Kimree Technology. As the only one e-cigarette enterprise among the "top 10", there is no doubt that Kimree pays special attention to innovative research and development. At the end of 2016, Kimree has applied for more than 3,500 patents in China and abroad. Its patents has been adopted by many of the famous e-cigarette brands and distributors. A great enterprise should have several important patents. It is hoped that more and more enterprises in China can pay attention to patents, not only on the quantity but also on the quality.

Boston, MA, April 25, 2017 --( PR.com )-- Brain monitoring devices are used to monitor and diagnose the neurological conditions by exploring the structure and functions of the brain in patients. These devices provide the information of the brain and greater understanding of neurological problems, with possible new treatments. Among brain monitoring devices CT and MRI are the conventional devices which are being used for the structural diagnosis of the brain like tumour, head injury etc., whereas EEG, MEG, TCD, oximeters and ICP monitors are the recent techniques used for the functional imaging of the brain. EEG measures the electrical activity generated by the various cortical layers of the brain whereas, MEG capture the magnetic fields generated by neural activity within the brain. Similarly, TCD measures the velocity of the blood flow through the brain’s blood vessels, oximeters are used to measure the regional cerebral oxygen saturation with in the brain and ICP monitors monitor the intracranial pressure within the skull while treating severe traumatic brain injury in patients. In addition to all these devices, sleep monitoring devices which occupies major share in the brain monitoring devices global market, are being used to understand the person’s sleep physiology and track sleep with the aim of finding patterns and correlations with person’s behaviours.Brain monitoring devices market is growing at a steady rate, as estimated by IQ4I Research the market is expected to reach $10.01billion by 2023.

Springtime has been a busy season for public relations expert Rhonda Rees, as she is a featured author in the newly released book, Elite Entrepreneurs presented by the popular radio podcast host Tony DUrso, from Higher Purpose Publishing, with a forward by Dr. Gary Arnold. Rees appears in a chapter highlighting PR, and offers her down-to-earth advice and practical suggestions, providing expert tips for readers. (Proceeds from sales go to help animal wildlife in South Africa.) She is also the author of the award-winning book, Profit and Prosper with Public Relations®: Insider Secrets to Make You a Success. https://www.amazon.com/Profit-Prosper-Public-Relations-Rhonda/dp/0982223501 According to Tony DUrso, “I reached out to a select group of Elite Entrepreneurs that I felt are true advocates for the success of their customers and community, while at the same time committing to spread the word about the great Kevin Richardson Wildlife Sanctuary. http://www.lionwhisperer.co.za. The book is now available on Amazon, hitting their best-seller lists: https://www.amazon.com/Tony-DUrso-Presents-Elite-Entrepreneurs-ebook/dp/B06XHNX7QZ . Another new development is the second annual “Check Your Books” PSA campaign for the month of April that Rees had originally orchestrated last year. This was an answer to the ongoing issue of online book piracy that is quite prevalent today in cyberspace. She had been honored as the Publicist of the Year by the prestigious Bulldog Reporter publication, for her efforts to help bring more awareness to this very silent type of crime -- one that doesn’t leave any fingerprints. Once again, Rees is naming the month of April to coincide with World Book and Copyright Day (April 23) organized by UNESCO, and World Intellectual Property IP Day (April 26), established by the World Intellectual Property Organization (WIPO). She is emphasizing this time of year for authors and publishers to run detailed Google and/or Bing searches and plug in the title of their books, the author’s name, and the word “free downloads” to see what comes up. In addition, April 22nd-23rd is also the annual Los Angeles Times Festival of Books on the USC campus. "This is another great opportunity for people to 'check their books', and then see what happens," states Rees. She has also written an article for the Small Publishers Artists and Writers Network (SPAWN), April newsletter: http://spawn.org/online-book-piracy/ that outlines what authors and publishers can do, should they find themselves in this very unwanted situation. According to the Association of American Publishers, the industry as a whole has lost $80 to $100 million dollars to online piracy annually. From 2009 to 2013, the number of e-book Internet piracy alerts that the Authors Guild of America had received from their membership increased by over 300%. During 2014, that number doubled, and in 2017, so far the figures are much higher. Rees has regularly appeared as an online book piracy awareness advocate on TV, radio and in print. In addition, she has given a webinar on the topic for the Independent Book Publishers Association (IBPA). Rees has also gotten the attention of the US Chamber of Commerce, Global IP Center, the Authors Guild of America, the Copyright Clearance Center, IP Watchdog.com, the Book Publicists of Southern California (BPSC), the MUSO Company, the Piracy Trace Business, and the Counterfeit Report Company, among others. To round out the month, she has also joined the International Women's Writing Guild. Their mission is to foster the personal and professional empowerment of women through writing. https://iwwg.wildapricot.org/ For further information, or to get involved in the cause against online book piracy, contact Rhonda Rees through her website at: http://www.rhondareespr.com/ or on LinkedIn: https://www.linkedin.com/in/rhonda-rees-8a803162/ Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/ProfitandProsperwithPR/?ref=bookmarks or Twitter: @ReesRhonda.

The debate on the relative benefits of conventional and organic farming systems has in recent time gained significant interest. So far, global agricultural development has focused on increased productivity rather than on a holistic natural resource management for food security. Thus, developing more sustainable farming practices on a large scale is of utmost importance. However, information concerning the performance of farming systems under organic and conventional management in tropical and subtropical regions is scarce. This study presents agronomic and economic data from the conversion phase (2007-2010) of a farming systems comparison trial on a Vertisol soil in Madhya Pradesh, central India. A cotton-soybean-wheat crop rotation under biodynamic, organic and conventional (with and without Bt cotton) management was investigated. We observed a significant yield gap between organic and conventional farming systems in the 1st crop cycle (cycle 1: 2007-2008) for cotton (-29%) and wheat (-27%), whereas in the 2nd crop cycle (cycle 2: 2009-2010) cotton and wheat yields were similar in all farming systems due to lower yields in the conventional systems. In contrast, organic soybean (a nitrogen fixing leguminous plant) yields were marginally lower than conventional yields (-1% in cycle 1, -11% in cycle 2). Averaged across all crops, conventional farming systems achieved significantly higher gross margins in cycle 1 (+29%), whereas in cycle 2 gross margins in organic farming systems were significantly higher (+25%) due to lower variable production costs but similar yields. Soybean gross margin was significantly higher in the organic system (+11%) across the four harvest years compared to the conventional systems. Our results suggest that organic soybean production is a viable option for smallholder farmers under the prevailing semi-arid conditions in India. Future research needs to elucidate the long-term productivity and profitability, particularly of cotton and wheat, and the ecological impact of the different farming systems. © 2013 Forster et al.


The paper addresses two issues. One concerns the general conditions and procedures involved in the emergence of a tool industry. Tool industries emerge and evolve as a collection of capital goods and tool inventors and manufacturers. One of our goals is to use some of the works on historical cases to build a heuristic framework concerning the main conditions for the emergence and development of tool industries. The other issue is more factual and involves the question whether a tool industry is today emerging in the area of education. The paper describes the emergence of a population of firms specialised in developing and commercialising educational tools and instructional technologies and discuss whether this trend can be seen as part of the solution to the innovation deficit and cost disease problems in this sector? © 2014 Elsevier B.V.

Drug Discovery Today | Year: 2015

An analysis of US Food and Drug Administration (FDA)-approved new molecular entities (NMEs) reveals dynamism in terms of new innovation. An assessment of the first patent for each drug shows that the pharmaceutical industry, particularly large, established companies in North America, tend to dominate the field. Over the past 10-15 years, European and Asian organizations have begun to close the gap. A dynamic inventive environment in drug discovery is suggested by the fact that NMEs for biologics or awarded to biotechnology companies often have inventors from the pharmaceutical and academic sectors. Whereas inventors continue to found biotechnology companies at a steady rate, recent trends suggest these inventors more often come from the private sector. © 2014 Elsevier Ltd.
