Raima to Preview RDM Embedded 10.0, the Upcoming Release of Their Popular Embedded Database, at ESC Silicon Valley 2010

Seattle, WA (PRWEB) April 16, 2010

Raima, a Birdstep Technology Company (OSE: BIRD), which offers state-of-the-art embedded database and dataflow technologies, today announced that they will be giving a preview of the next version of RDM Embedded, expected to be released in June, at this years ESC Silicon Valley 2010. They will also be showing their dataFlow technology demo which they have extended to include the MontaVista Linux 6 platform. The show held in the McEnery Convention Center in San Jose California runs from April 26th through April 29th. Raima/Birdstep can be found in booth number 2106.

"We are very excited about the upcoming release of our popular embedded database, RDM Embedded commented Steinar Sande, CEO." "Our engineers have completed a significant redesign of the database engine. The new engine can now take full advantage of todays multicore processors. Where RDM Embedded was fast before it is now, in some cases, as much as 300% faster. In addition, horizontal scaling has been dramatically improved to take full advantage of hardware (i.e. disk drives, flash memory, RAM, etc.) which might later be added to the system."

Raima will also be showing their dataflow demo in their booth. New to the demo is the addition of a singleboard computer running RDM Embedded on the MontaVista Linux 6 operating system.

Raimas RDMe dataFlow technology is a direct response to todays embedded system developers continue to face the difficult problem of efficiently storing and managing large amounts of data on resource-constrained devices. These single computer resource constraint devices range anything from sensors and robots on the shop floor to flight data systems deployed on fighter jets. Adding to this problem is the growing need of business intelligence and enterprise systems to gain access to the data now captured and stored on these devices. More often these days the requirement is to access data in real-time or near real-time. This live demo demonstrates how the RDMe dataFlow technology can be used to move data from one device to aggregation points, business intelligence systems and/or distributing the data to additional devices.

"What is really exciting is RDMe dataFlow engines ability to not only move data between instances of RDM Embedded and RDM Server but also its unique ability to move data to other non Raima database systems technologies such as Oracle


North Texas Tea Party and Conservative Grassroots Groups Join Together for Lone Star Tea Party Tax Day Rally April 15, 2010

Dallas, TX (PRWEB) April 8, 2010

An unprecedented coalition of Metroplex conservative grassroots and tea party groups will join together to host the Lone Star Tea Party Tax Day Rally on April 15, 2010. To date, twenty-four area groups are actively participating in the event, which will be held at QuikTrip Park in Grand Prairie, Texas.

The Lone Star Tea Party is a non-partisan event connecting friends and neighbors who are fed up with the direction this country is headed, want to preserve the U.S. Constitution and limit the government to the powers granted therein. In addition to both local and nationally known speakers, the rally will feature the Postcard from Texas, a 50-foot-long banner on which participants may write a personal message to Washington. The postcard will be hand delivered to 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue.

The emcee for the event will be Mark Davis of WBAP, the highest rated talk radio host in the Dallas/Fort Worth Metroplex. Mark Davis will be joined by Mike Gallagher of KSKY and Jeff Bolton of KLIF.

"This is the first major organized event whereby a majority of local tea party and 912 groups have come together to be united in North Texas," said Mel Moss, President, Arlington Tea Party, Inc. "The mo-mentum of the tea parties continues to grow as people become more frustrated with elected politicians and special interest groups."

"We are excited Mark Davis is hosting our event, and we know the people of Texas will benefit from hearing his views on individual liberties, freedom and the Constitution," said Kaaren Teuber, a leader of the grassroots group Texoma Patriots. "The recent back room deals and arrogance in Washington that rammed the Health Care bill down the throats of the American people will result in layoffs, cutbacks in benefits, and rationed healthcare. We must unite together, speak with a single voice, and change the direction of this country."

"Our elected officials can't continue to ignore the wishes of the people and expect us to forget come election day," said Ken Emanuelson, a member of the Steering Committee for Dallas Tea Party "This rally is a golden opportunity for our movement to build our collective membership base and come together to make our voices heard."

6Sep/130 Reveals The Most and Least Expensive 2010 Vehicles To Insure in Interactive Tool

Foster City, CA (PRWEB) March 15, 2010's annual ranking of average car insurance rates reveals that the Porsche Carrera GT2 two-door coupe is the most expensive vehicle to insure among 2010 models. A 40-year-old male would pay a national average of $ 2,943.78 for car insurance annually and that's assuming the driver has a good driving record.

On the other end of the scale is the Mazda Tribute I (2WD four-door SUV) the least expensive 2010 vehicle to insure among the more than 2,400 vehicles examined. Looking across other categories, the Dodge Caliber is the least expensive passenger car to insure, the GMC Canyon WT (2WD 2 Door 2.9L) is the least expensive pickup to insure, and the Honda Odyssey LX (5 Door 2WD SOHC) is the least expensive minivan to insure.

Youll find average premiums for more than 2,400 vehicles, including national and state averages, in Insure.coms new interactive car insurance comparison tool.

The profile of the average person who drives a particular model has great influence on the premiums for that vehicle. Costs for collision and comprehensive coverage are based on the model's "loss history." For example, small cars that are often driven by young, inexperienced drivers tend to be more expensive to insure. Car insurance rates also tend to rise with horsepower.

Parker Waichman LLP Reports that Over 900 Patients Suffered Cardiac Arrest at Fresenius Dialysis Centers in 2010

(PRWEB) June 21, 2012

Parker Waichman LLP, a national law firm dedicated to protecting victims from defective drugs and medical devices, is notifying the public about a recent discovery concerning Fresenius Medical Care and two dialysis products, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte. According to the New York Times, GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are associated with elevated bicarbonate levels, a problem that is linked to a six-fold increased risk for cardiopulmonary arrest.

According to an internal memo dated November 4th 2011, 941 hemodialysis patients experienced cardiac arrest from 667 Fresenius facilities in 2010. The company conducted an analysis of these patients, comparing them to over 80,000 other dialysis patients in the same center. Overall, the data indicated that excess bicarbonate, or alkalosis, significantly increased the risk of heart problems in hemodialysis patients.

GranuFlo and NaturaLyte are powder and liquid dialysis products, respectively. They both contain acetate, but GranuFlo contributes twice as much as NaturaLyte. The liver rapidly metabolizes acetate to the alkaline substance bicarbonate, which is used in dialysis to counteract the acidity that can build up in the blood. But according to the New York Times, these products contain more acetate than its competitors, and thus results in more bicarbonate in the body. These excess bicarbonate levels increase the risk for heart attack, according to the memo.

While Fresenius alerted its own physicians and medical directors about the issue, it did not notify the public or the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) about the findings until the agency received an anonymous copy of the memo and inquired about it. When Dr. Franklin W. Maddux, chief medical officer of Fresenius North America, was questioned about the companys lack of action, he said that it was not in a condition for general consumption, according to the New York Times. When the company did inform its customers in late March, the issued letter did not mention the 941 patients who had suffered cardiac arrest, nor did it include other statistics highlighted in the memo.

Here we have a textbook example of a company trying to minimize the dissemination of information outside of its walls, says Matthew McCauley, attorney at Parker Waichman LLP. Fresenius clearly chose not to advise its outside customers about these documented cardiac risks and that is reprehensible conduct.

The issue has prompted an FDA probe to determine whether or not their failure to warn violated federal regulations. According to Law360, the investigation may even come to encompass the entire company. Last month, the FDA issued a Safety Communication warning about alkali dosing errors for products like GranuFlo and NaturaLyte in hemodialysis patients.;;

Parker Waichman LLP offers free lawsuit consultations to victims of Fresenius GranuFlo and NaturaLyte side effects.

AUTOMOBILE Magazine Reveals 2010 All-Stars Winners

AUTOMOBILE Magazine Reveals 2010 All-Stars Winners

Ann Arbor, MI (PRWEB) December 16, 2009

AUTOMOBILE Magazine, America’s leading automotive lifestyle publication and part of Source Interlink Media, today announced the winners of its 2010 AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE All-Stars Awards.

“The level of excellence found during our annual All-Stars competition was at an all-time high and the competition was strong, despite the auto industry coming off its worst year in recent history. Repeat winners Ford Flex and Jaguar XF are joined by the updated classic Chevy Camaro, the sleek Audi S4, and the eco-friendly Ford Fusion Hybrid,” said Jean Jennings, president and editor-in-chief of AUTOMOBILE Magazine. “We whittled down a list of thirty- nine finalists to the ten All-Stars. The end results produced a list of true standouts, spanning a wide range of the automotive spectrum.”

Each year, the editors of AUTOMOBILE Magazine convene to test, evaluate, and debate the performance, significance, and pure enthusiast appeal of the cars that make the biggest impact. Award winners will be featured in the February 2010 issue of AUTOMOBILE Magazine, available on newsstands on January 5, 2010.

AUTOMOBILE Magazine’s 2010 All-Stars, with editorial assessments, are:

Jaguar XF/XFR – The 2009 Jaguar XF earned an All-Star award for its balance of power, athleticism, and refinement. So when the XF received significant improvements for 2010, including three new V-8 engines, AUTOMOBILE Magazine rewarded Jaguar for making a good thing even better. The XF/XFR is both a sports car and a luxury touring sedan, and its uncompromising practicality and refreshed performance establish the Jaguar XF as an All-Star.

Audi S4 – Cheaper than the car it replaces, the sure-footed, all-wheel-drive Audi S4 takes everything AUTOMOBILE Magazine likes about the Audi A4 on which it’s based – comfort, safety, and solid build quality – and cranks it up. Its fiery V-6 is impressive, pulling to its 7,000 rpm redline like there’s no tomorrow. Compared with the previous model, the S4 sheds half a second in the 0 to 60 mph run (5.2 seconds with a six speed manual) while managing to increase fuel economy. Quicker, cleaner, thriftier, cheaper. Sold.

Chevrolet Camaro – 2009 wasn’t a good year for General Motors, but amid all the turmoil there have been glimmers of hope. One need look no further than the brash, beautiful Chevrolet Camaro – if one can be found on dealer lots, that is – for proof that GM can build great cars. In fact, AUTOMOBILE Magazine gladly names the reborn Camaro as one of its favorite rides for 2010. With its old-school charm, the Camaro is a smashing sales success and, now, an All-Star.

BMW 335d – The BMW 335d is the most important car this year to get lost in the crowd. While the 335i and the M3 always show up in comparison tests, the 335d is an outlier – because, really, what would be comparable to it? Going from 0 to 60 mph in six seconds, the 335d is game for hard driving, but its 3.0-liter twin-turbocharged diesel six-cylinder also returns subcompact-like fuel economy. There is no other car that combines performance and fuel economy at this level.

Dodge Ram 1500 – When a new pickup truck has the fortitude to question established practices, it deserves to be recognized. The new half ton Dodge Ram is that truck. Dodge engineers created a vehicle that works smarter, drives quieter, uses less fuel, and secures cargo storage better. The Ram sets the standard by living up to the radical idea that the cabin of a $ 40,000 truck should be as nice as that of a $ 40,000 car.

Ford Flex – As an All-Star last year, AUTOMOBILE Magazine referred to the 2009 Ford Flex as a “class act among people movers.” For 2010, Ford has equipped the Flex with its much anticipated EcoBoost engine, thereby addressing the Flex’s only weakness – power – and effectively transforming it from a well rounded family hauler into a large sport wagon. The Flex is unique in a market brimming with compromised, look alike utility vehicles and is one of the best-handling full-size crossovers on the market.

BMW Z4 – The previous Z4 was a little rough and tough, a little unsophisticated, and undeniably masculine. BMW took a good look at its customers’ needs and traded racetrack readiness for everyday elegance – and the Bimmer is better for it. The interior is a marvel of simplicity and elegance, the sheetmetal is at once sexy, sultry, and supremely muscular, and 60 mph can be yours in five to six seconds, depending on the powertrain combination you choose. In every way, the BMW Z4 is a better car and a deserving 2010 AUTOMOBILE Magazine All-Star.

Ford Fusion Hybrid – It’s just a car, an ordinary everyday family driver, nothing special. Except that it is very special indeed. Quietly, Ford has put a car on the road that essentially enlists Toyota hybrid technology but uses it more cleverly than the originating company did. It is not a performance machine, but neither does it feel hobbled or inadequate for daily driving. Perhaps the best thing about it is that, apart from the LCD color screens, you might never know you’re driving a hybrid. Its very ordinariness is what makes it an AUTOMOBILE Magazine All-Star.

Mazda 3 – The Mazda 3 and its feisty Mazdaspeed 3 alter ego are so tickled with themselves that they greet the world with a fender-to-fender grin. With three engines and five trim levels, the 3 accounts for nearly half of Mazda’s U.S. sales. The 2010 version brings a stiffer unibody, firmer suspension, tauter steering, revised seats, and a larger engine. In a car world gone mad with obsessive levels of poise and refinement, the Mazdaspeed 3 – AUTOMOBILE Magazine’s favorite 3 – is a refreshing throwback to the days of half-baked fun.

Porsche Boxster/Cayman– According to AUTOMOBILE Magazine, the Porsche Boxster roadster and its hardtop sibling, the Cayman, are as close as a car company can get to the perfect everyday sports car. It fits like a glove and drives like a dream. It’s powerful enough to get in trouble, but agile enough to get out of it. The brakes produce stopping power that can stretch a neck better than any chiropractor. With fully optioned models climbing to $ 70K and beyond, the Boxster/Cayman isn’t cheap, but buying one will allow you to achieve sports car nirvana.

Criteria and Evaluation

The AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE All-Stars are chosen by the AUTOMOBILE MAGAZINE staff, its worldwide bureau chiefs, and its contributors, following an intensive test drive of the year’s most innovative and important new cars. Vehicles considered for the All-Stars awards combine the following traits:

    Redefines an existing category or creates a new market segment
    Provides excellent value and performance for the money
    Exhibits an exceptional design
    Offers pure driving enjoyment

Winners are determined by a round-table discussion that results in a vote for the ten winners. The award decisions are not made through an instrumented test process.
