WARNER, N.H. (PRWEB) June 13, 2013

According to author Davis Goss, problem solving procedures in the business environment are becoming less creative and more difficult to solve. In his book, The Science of Living Better Forever (published by AuthorHouse), Goss attempts to reverse this way of thinking. In a world where problem solving procedures are based on academic theory, philosophical abstractions and confrontational approaches, explains Goss, there is a proven scientific problem solving technique is truly unique.

During his 60 years as a creative consultant, Goss realized that there was one basic cause of all problems, the existence of the universal natural laws.

When this cause is known, understood and properly implemented, all problems, regardless of their nature, characteristic or apparent severity, will disappear like darkness in the presence of light, says Goss. The book gives readers a comprehensive outline of the natural laws and principles and how they can be applied to daily activities to solve problems.

My book is a radical departure from the norm, but for more than 60 years, its validity has been proven to the benefit of a widely diverse client base.

What are the key drivers behind recent market changes?

Low intensity conflicts and operations other than war have increased significantly, driving the demand for military helicopters. In both land and maritime environments, fast moving unconventional and irregular enemy forces pose intelligence problems. Helicopters are well suited for this role with accurate intelligence, surveillance, target acquisition, and reconnaissance (ISTAR) capabilities. In addition, demand for helicopters able to rapidly reconfigure other roles such as medical evacuation and other humanitarian relief efforts is expected to increase over the forecast period.

What makes this report unique and essential to read?

The Global Military Rotorcraft Market 2013-2023 provides detailed analysis of the current industry size and growth expectations from 2013 to 2023, including highlights of key growth stimulators. It also benchmarks the industry against key global markets and provides detailed understanding of emerging opportunities in specific areas.

Key Features and Benefits:

The report provides detailed analysis of the market for military rotorcraft during 2013-2023, including the factors that influence the reasons countries are investing or cutting defense expenditure. It provides detailed expectations of growth rates and projected total expenditure.

Many of the military helicopters are obsolete or reaching the end of their operational life, due to which, despite budget cuts, the global military rotorcraft market is expected to grow over the forecast period. Countries such as Russia, the US, Canada, France, Germany, France, China, and India are seeking to replace existing military rotorcraft with modern helicopters. In addition to modernizing existing fleets, countries are continuing to focus on acquiring new multi-role helicopters.

Key Market Issues:

Military helicopter manufacturers are understandably anxious, primarily due to the expected US$ 700 billion defense budget cuts between 2012 and 2023. Even though helicopters are expected to be the one of the least affected segments, the market sentiments are cautious with regards to future expenditure. Traditionally, North America and Europe accounted for 80% of global defense expenditure. However, the global economic downturn, US economic crisis, and European debt crisis are expected to negatively impact defense expenditure over the forecast period.

Owing to limited budgets, many countries worldwide are looking to replace their helicopter fleet with unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs). The reasons for this are that UAVs are cheaper, do not require support, and their pilots can fly from the safety of a control room. Owing to dangerous operations in Afghanistan and Iraq which have resulted in a low tolerance for casualties by the public, UAVs are considered to be ideal to prevent unnecessary loss of life.

Key Highlights:

At the cyber-security world summit held in 2010, security experts raised credible issues such as crashing power grids, stalled air control towers, hospital infrastructure being rendered useless, and national defenses being susceptible to outside attacks. New technologies such as cloud computing, social networking, and the proliferation of mobile devices have also resulted in an increase of cyber attacks. The governments of the UK, the US, France, Belgium, Germany, and India have stated that their systems and networks were infiltrated by criminal networks. Such incidents are expected to augment a sustainable demand for cyber security over the forecast period.

Several developing countries around the world have also embarked on ambitious acquisition programs for military helicopters while others are developing their own domestic manufacturing capabilities. Bell helicopter, which has the largest market share in terms of military helicopter sales, recently stated that India was its fastest-growing market globally with a growth rate of 17% compared to less than 5% for Europe and the US.

Next Generation Sequencing Market NGS – Pre-Sequencing, Cloud Computing & NGS Bioinformatics Solutions are Growth Opportunities Says New Research Report at ReportsnReport

Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) July 03, 2013

The next generation sequencing market is rapidly evolving with a large number of developments taking place to increase accuracy and speed, and reduce costs of sequencing. It is the fastest-growing and most lucrative segment in the genomics space with an estimated growth of 16.3%. The global NGS market was valued at $ 1.3 billion in 2012 and is poised to reach $ 2.7 billion by 2017. By supporting genomics research, various government bodies like NHGRI (National Human Genome Research Institute, U.S.) and Biotechnology and Biological Sciences Research Council (BBSRC, U.K.) are increasing the adoption of high-throughput sequencing platforms.

The growth of the overall next generation sequencing (NGS) market ( is driven by continuous innovations and developments in the market aimed at higher throughput, increased accuracy, and affordable costs. However, factors such as high reliability on grants and funding from the government, and a decrease in capital expenditure from academic institutions are hindering the growth of the market. In addition, the interpretation of big data generated by sequencers and the subsequent storage and management of the analyzed data is still a challenge. Owing to the complexity of NGS technologies and data, standardization of the overall NGS workflow presents an unmet need. The opportunities for the growth of this market include developments in the pre-sequencing, cloud computing, and NGS bioinformatics solutions.

The NGS platforms market was dominated by Illumina in 2012, which accounted for the largest market share of 56%. Other companies with commercial platforms include Life Technologies (U.S.), 454 Roche (U.S.), and Pacific Biosciences (U.S.). The recently introduced Bench-top and NGS platforms will drive the market. Based on steps in the NGS workflow, the overall NGS market has three major segments, namely, pre-sequencing, NGS platforms and services, and NGS data analysis, storage and management.

The raw sequencing data generated by todays sequencers does not reflect on any meaningful information in itself. Also, open source tools for analyzing NGS data require adequate bioinformatics training. These factors open up huge opportunities for commercial NGS bioinformatics software, workbenches, and services, whose market is currently fragmented and has a relatively smaller size. Whole genome sequencing, targeted re-sequencing, de novo sequencing, RNA-Seq, ChIP-Seq and methyl-Seq are the major applications that use NGS data analysis tools and services. Key players like CLC bio (Denmark), Biomatters (New Zealand), Partek (U.S.), Genomatix (Germany), Knome (U.S.), and DNASTAR (U.S.) dominate this market space.

Next generation sequencing is set to revolutionize applied markets like diagnostics, drug discovery, biomarker discovery, personalized medicine, and agriculture and animals research. Research institutes and government bodies contribute the highest to the end-user market of NGS; however, the adoption rate in hospitals will increase in the near future due to cost effectiveness, high throughput, and sensitivity.

The NGS market will witness a whole new generation of sequencing platforms based on nanapore sequencing technology and fully integrated instruments that could perform all the NGS workflow steps.

Scope of the Report

This research report categorizes and analyzes the global NGS market on the basis of steps in the NGS workflow and NGS applications.

David Darling says dinosaur-like consoles are heading for extinction

(PRWEB) July 04, 2012

As a current topic on game industry lips, it is no surprise that gaming veteran, Codemasters co-founder David Darling CBE, has released a blog post about the digital revolution and the fall of game consoles.

Darling wrote his article last night on the website of his new mobile gaming company, Kwalee, labeling games consoles as old fashioned.

Darling writes: Consoles have become like dinosaurs heading for extinction.

With physical media such as DVD and CDs dying out fast, it is not surprising that gaming is indeed moving to digital distribution, which Darling believes will end the console wars.

He explains, Sony and Microsoft cannot let the retailers dictate game prices going forwards if they want to break free from the current over-priced model, their next consoles PlayStation 4 and Xbox 720 need to be digital only, or they will fail.

Once Apple add an App Store to Apple TV they could take over the living room games industry like they have taken over the handheld games industry with iPhone with flexible pricing and no distribution costs.

Darling adds, [Consoles] must adapt to a new environment where platforms like Steam, Facebook, Apple and Android App Stores are pushing innovation.

Darling co-founded Codemasters in 1986, focusing on high quality budget games for 8-bit home computers. The company released low retail price titles dominating the market in the 80s.

His experience in computer, console, and now mobile gaming, provides Darling with deep knowledge and understanding of game development. Mobile gaming is fast becoming the fastest growing sector of the gaming industry, projected to become an $ 18 billion industry by 2018.

Darling writes: Angry Birds has had more than one billion downloads. A sales figure totally beyond what can be achieved by boxed games. Giants like Apple and Google are taking over as the industry is transitioning from boxed to digital games.

Mobile gaming is a demanding market, with an increase of smartphone owners. Consumers are beginning to abandon their consoles and divert their budgets from paying $ 50 on a boxed product, to a free or $ 1 games with optional in-app purchases.

Darling comments on the advantages of free-to-play games:

Players can play more games for free and pay just for the content that they want.

Darling adds, Digitally distributed games can reach players all around the world quickly, cutting out physical production, warehouses, distributors and retailers. Therefore, it is no longer necessary to charge people huge prices to play video games.

Arguably, Darling debates the importance of game reviews. If a game can be downloaded and played for free, will you have a need for game reviews when you can try the game yourself for free? He states to have learnt what players want, going to great lengths to produce exciting games, with a number of creative and ambitious multiplayer turn-based games under development.

After all, digital distribution is only a delivery method. The important thing is making great games

David Darlings new company Kwalee, based in the centre of the Silicon Spa gaming community in Leamington Spa, focuses on social multiplayer mobile games. With iOS and Android devices offering gamers with numerous features that consoles cant such as touchscreen, cameras, GPS, accelerometers, built-in microphones etc. like other developers, Kwalees games would not work on the console market.

To read David Darlings full blog post, follow the link:

Kwalee recently launched their latest iOS game, Pussy Flip, which is due to be available globally on the Apple App Store next month, unsurprisingly for free.

Get Ready For The New Ivy Bridge Gaming Laptops – Says

(PRWEB) May 09, 2012

Recently, several new Intel 3rd Generation 22nm based Ivy Bridge gaming laptops were added on, which runs a comprehensive online laptop buyer's guide. These new Ivy Bridge computer systems offer better performance and much superior graphics than their previous cousins, Sandy Bridge empowered notebooks.

In addition, the new architecture or platform, will operate with less heat and give much longer battery life. These features will make the new Intel CPUs very popular for ultra-thin laptops and tablets, where all these computer components are squeezed into a limited space. Another very obvious application will be with gaming laptops, where superior graphics are much needed to handle today's ever-demanding video games.

Already, we are seeing high-end gaming notebooks from ASUS, MSI and Alienware, hitting the marketplace. We have the Alienware M17x, Asus G75 and the 15.6-inch GT60 and the 17.3-inch GT70 from MSI. All these Ivy Bridge laptops are now featured on the site and discussed further.

"Intel's main competition for Ivy Bridge will probably be AMD's Trinity," says Titus Hoskins, a former teacher who runs the Bizwaremagic site. "It will be interesting to see what happens when AMD's Trinity, which follows the Llano APUs (accelerated processing units), comes out later this month."

Ivy Bridge empowered laptops will offer improved graphics and longer battery life, two features which will no doubt, prove very popular with consumers in our very mobile obsessed world. Go thin or go home, should be the unwritten motto of Ivy Bridge.
