MUM Accounting Students First in World to Learn New Reporting System Required by US Government Agencies


Fairfield, IA (PRWEB) January 03, 2014

Accounting students at Maharishi University are gaining certification in a new worldwide standard for exchanging financial and accounting information that’s required by the US government as well as a growing list of international organizations. Maharishi U is the first university in the world to offer this certification training as an academic course.

"The government is increasingly expecting financial institutions to adopt this new standard, but there are very few accountants trained in this area," said accounting professor Andrew Bargerstock, PhD, CPA. "Our students are moving quickly to fill this void."

Extensible Business Reporting Language (XBRL)

The new standard, XBRL, or eXtensible Business Reporting Language, is a formal markup language with some similarities to computer programming that systematically defines business facts, values, contexts, units, and more in order to exchange financial information.

Common functions in many countries that make use of XBRL include regulators of stock exchanges and securities, banking regulators, business registrars, revenue reporting and tax-filing agencies, and national statistical agencies.

A Highly Marketable Skill

According to Dr. Bargerstock, the XBRL standard is rapidly spreading worldwide. In the U.S., both the Securities Exchange Commission (SEC) and the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) require that all data reported to them use XBRL.

The Netherlands has adopted XBRL as a government-wide standard of reporting accounting and financial information. And in a recent report, the International Accounting Standards Board (IASB) stated that "XBRL reporting has become an integral aspect of most registrants’ financial reporting infrastructures, and interactive data is more readily available to financial statement users than ever before."

"We want our students to be on the cutting edge," Dr. Bargerstock said. "This new system is very challenging to learn, but once an accountant is certified, he or she will be highly sought after by the many large institutions who are now having to prepare their data in this new way. This will give our students another credential that will make them attractive in the US and international job market."

Students, Faculty Earn Certification

XBRL International, (http://www.xbrl.org), which developed this new standard, offers testing to certify that accountants have mastered it. Dr. Bargerstock and six of his students have so far earned XBRL certification. According to XBRL International, Maharishi University of Management is the first university to offer XBRL instruction and certification as part of the curriculum. XBRL is offered as a one-credit course in MUM’s MBA Accounting program.

The MUM Accounting MBA

Maharishi University of Management offers an MBA for Accounting Professionals program that enrolls students from a variety of countries. They spend seven months on campus taking MBA courses, and then are placed in paid practicum positions around the US while completing their degree via distance education.

Track Record of Success

Dr. Bargerstock, director of the University’s MBA programs, received the 2009 Excellence in Lean Accounting Professor award from the Lean Enterprise Institute (LEI) at the Lean Accounting Summit. Since then, Dr. Bargerstock has published research articles in Management Accounting Quarterly and guided two Ph.D. students who won the Lean Accounting Student of the Year Award (2011, 2013) by LEI at the annual Lean Accounting Summit.

Dr. Bargerstock’s students have also placed in top 10 positions of the revolving CAPSIM business simulations CAPSIM business simulations. Every year since beginning the simulation as part of the MBA curriculum, MUM has placed student teams in the Top 10th percentile worldwide including #1 finishes in the world in 2011 and 2013. This online simulation addresses the need for accountants to become better acquainted with strategic thinking and decision-making in circumstances of uncertainty and in a team environment.

The XBRL training and certification adds to the growing list of skills MUM students have been developing, including their recent course in Data-Mining using the latest SPSS Modeler software and its application in business marketing.

"This combination of these three things—success is Business Simulations, understanding of Data Mining, and XBRL certification," said Dr. Bargerstock, "puts MBAs coming out of Maharishi University of Management in a whole new light with great potential for building long-term careers in the United States and internationally."

About the University

Founded in 1971, Maharishi University of Management (MUM) offers Consciousness-Based℠ Education, a traditional academic curriculum enhanced with self-development programs like the Transcendental Meditation® technique.

World Trade Center in Atlanta First to Stream Global Education in 50+ Languages Simultaneously Using Speech Translation Software by Translate Your World


(PRWEB) December 10, 2013

The World Trade Center in Atlanta streamed an unprecedented course on entrepreneurship that was delivered online in over 50 languages simultaneously using a software called Translate Your World. Tears streamed down the faces of professors and students in Haiti, because, for the first time, they understood the lectures. Rave "thank you" web chats poured in from Africa, Europe, and Asia, thanking the dynamic teachers from School For Startups for offering their course in dozens of languages. This World Trade Center Atlanta event was the first time in history that education streamed across the Internet in over 50 languages at the same time.

Today’s increased bandwidth combined with the latest speech translation technologies crush the language barrier and open education to a prospective 4 billion people who own a computer, irrespective of where they are located or what language they speak. The new cross-language speech translation software by Translate Your World translates what people say in real-time for a global audience as subtitles or as synthesized computer voice like Apple’s Siri for any conferencing software (e.g. WebEx, Skype, Blackboard) and for all devices. The low bandwidth required for speech translation made it possible for the World Trade Center in Atlanta to stream to regions heretofore unreachable.

As institutions race to prepare their classrooms for global Internet broadcast, spoken language has been the insurmountable barrier. Understanding the spoken word affects not only class lecturers, but also educational recruiters and marketers. New speech translation software does for spoken voices what "Google Translate" does for text; they translate what people say in a way that the listener understands. For education, this means translating a teacher’s lectures from the podium into another language; giving recruiters new cross-language software to speak with prospective students; and offering avenues for promotional presentations in other languages.

Importantly, voice translation technologies reduce the cost of class translation by up to 95%, and quickly morph a classroom from local to global in a matter of days. Traditional lecture translation can easily cost $ 20,000 per 10-week course per language, and take months to prepare. Today’s voice translation products translate the professor’s voice directly as the professor speaks in real-time, then provide online interfaces for follow-up translation improvement, reducing the cost to $ 1,000 per 10-week course per language.

Companies in this arena:

Speech translation:

Several speech translation solutions for cross-language speaking were introduced in 2013 by Translate Your World. The solutions unite strong and tested software by Microsoft, Dragon, Google, and others into cross-language applications for educational and business use. The software makes real-time "live" voice translation, presentations, and cross-language conversations both feasible and inexpensive. Options include subtitles and computerized voice, plus capability to save in a database with an interface to improve and combine with video.

Classrooms on mobile:

Institutions also find the need to move their classrooms to mobile devices. Particularly for students abroad, mobile and tablet may be the only reliable Internet access available. IntelaText displays voice translation as real-time subtitles on mobile, and also provides mobile applications for teachers to converse with students and parents across language barriers.

Mobile tutoring:

Mobile Tutor is a cross-language talking and texting application that provides personal support for student-teacher-tutor relationships throughout the educational cycle. Each participant speaks or texts in their preferred language, translated for the recipient.

International recruiting:

For recruiting technologies, Streaming Translation uses voice translation software to offer online presentations across languages, webinar subtitles, and speech translation for Skype, WebEx, and similar.

The World Trade Center in Atlanta was the first organization in history to offer a college level course in 50 languages at the same time using speech translation software. Hopefully the first of many, because now all of the major speech technologies have reached a level of development that enable them to be used together in harmony for worldwide education at dramatically lower cost.

World Big Data Market Opportunities 2013-2018

London (PRWEB) October 29, 2013

Report Details

Although big data is not a new concept, it has emerged as a significant commercial success over the past few years. Visiongain calculates that over the next five years big data will play an increasingly important role in the business segment as future systems will further exploit the capabilities offered by this technology. Visiongain has determined that the value of the global big data market in 2013 will reach $ 12.4 billion.

One of the key driving points for big data services has been its applicability to all forms of organizations where some sort of data is being compiled and managed. While all of these organizations might not gain equally from the application of big data, some will thrive from it and others will see results with a lower impact. Nonetheless big data is here to stay and is already being adopted in many sectors including healthcare, communications, retail, transport, private and the public sector.

In recent years, as the IT world discovers new and innovative ways on how to systematically collect and harness the power of big data, there has been increasing debate regarding its ethical application, especially with the growing concerns for user privacy and users demanding full transparency from organizations from how their private data is being handled.

This issue has been highlighted with the recent revelation from the leaked documents of the Prism initiative of the National Security Agency (NSA) and its alleged linkages to gain access to user data from giant corporations using big data such as Facebook, Google, Apple and a few others. These companies could come under close scrutiny for the exploitation of their users private data if these claims are found to be true.

Big data is turning out to be a ubiquitous phenomenon which can effectively be applied a wide range of industries from the private to the public sector. The overall big data market is growing at a rapid pace and will continue to do so over the forecast period 2013-2018.

On Its 40th Anniversary, Hersheys Chocolate World Attraction Hits Record Attendance and Sets Bar for Multisensory Brand Experiences


Hershey, Pa. (PRWEB) October 23, 2013

To view the full multimedia news release, please visit http://www.HersheyExperience.com.

At age 40, Hershey’s® Chocolate World® Attraction shows no sign of slowing down. In fact, the world’s most visited brand experience recorded its best summer season in its history this year and the original location in Hershey, Pa., hosted more than two million visitors from all over the world. The experiential marketing leader continues its momentum as more stores are set to open around the world.

“As a pioneer in offering devoted brand fans a place to immerse themselves in a complete brand experience, Hershey’s Chocolate World has been a popular destination since we opened the doors of our flagship location in 1973,” said Amy Hahn, Vice President and General Manager of The Global Hershey Experience and Licensing. “We keep modernizing these amazing branded experiences to give consumers unique new ways to engage with our brands and keep coming to Hershey’s Chocolate World in record numbers.”

More than 150 million guests have visited a Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction since 1973, and the flagship location in Hershey, Pa., hosts more visitors than any other brand experience in the world.

Record-Breaking Summer Season

Summer is the peak season for Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction and this summer set the attendance record and ensured the popular destination will record its best full-year attendance in its 40-year history. Summer attendance was eight percent above last summer, the previous season record.

Summer 2013 also featured some record-breaking statistics for the original location in Hershey, Pa.:

    More than one million pounds of chocolate sold
    200,000 visitors were immersed in a Hershey’s Kisses digital experience that pulled consumers inside the imaginary factory of the Hershey’s Kisses TV commercial
    175,000 visitors created customized chocolate bars at Hershey’s Create Your Own Candy Bar attraction, a 12 percent increase over the prior year
    75,000 guests learned the art of tasting chocolate through the Chocolate Tasting Adventure
    More than 200,000 guests helped solve a mystery inside the Hershey’s Chocolate Factory with live animated Hershey™, Reese™ and Kiss™ characters at the “Hershey’s Great Chocolate Factory Mystery 4D Show” launched in May in time for the 40th anniversary

Multisensory Marketing Leader

The Hershey Company has been recognized for its use of technology and innovation to develop new confectionery products to meet consumers’ needs. And Hershey’s Chocolate World has long been recognized as a leader for breaking ground with new, interactive and customizable multisensory consumer engagement experiences. From the moment guests walk through the doors, the scent of chocolate and freshly baked cookies greets them, along with Hershey branded characters and brand imagery on a scale unmatched anywhere else. From high-tech exhibits to unique ways to make the experience completely personalized, visitors to Hershey’s Chocolate World are completely immersed in their favorite candy brands and every sense is constantly pampered and teased with chocolate.

Guests can customize their chocolate bars, taste different chocolate offerings and in Hershey, Pa., take a chocolate tour ride to learn how Hershey’s Milk Chocolate is made. These memorable, engaging and multisensory experiences increase consumer loyalty and result in lifetime retention.

Award-Winning Retail and Merchandising Designs

Part of the success of Hershey’s Chocolate World in creating a 360-degree brand experience is retail and merchandising designs that visually surround consumers in a complete brand experience, engage them with their favorite brands and provide access to the widest assortment of product available in one location.

The Hershey’s Chocolate World Times Square store underwent a complete design renovation in 2012 and received top honors in the Visual Merchandising & Store Design (VMSD) magazine’s International Visual Competition. Only 10 stores were recognized in VMSD, the leading magazine for retail design and visual merchandising industry

“Our Hershey’s Chocolate World stores not only set a high bar for merchandising excellence, we also learn new and innovative ways to present our brands to consumers and then share that learning with our broad distribution retail customers,” added Hahn. “Our store designs are pacesetters for what traditional retailers can do in their stores. They serve as learning labs where we can continually create new and better ways to present and merchandise our products in ways that capture the attention and imagination of candy-loving consumers.”

40 Years of Confectionery Fun:

Hershey’s Chocolate World Attractions have celebrated a number of key milestones over the past four decades, including:

    1973: Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction in Hershey, Pa., opens its doors for the first time, offering chocolate-lovers a “behind-the-scenes” view of the creation of the classic confections through a simulated factory tour ride
    1984: Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction visitors take on the Hershey’s brand – literally – with personalized messages on molded chocolate bars, followed by personalized 5-pound bars (1999) and packaging that features customers’ images on a Hershey’s Milk Chocolate Bar wrapper or genuine Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction Syrup bottle (2009)
    2000: Visitors to Niagara Falls, Canada, plunge into a chocolate-lovers dreamscape with the opening of the first Hershey’s retail experience outside of Hershey, Pa.
    2002: A new Hershey store opens in New York City’s Times Square featuring actual factory equipment to dispense candy to millions of Hershey’s chocolate patrons at the landmark location
    2008: Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction makes its first appearance outside North America in Shanghai, bringing the chocolate-loving experience to millions more in the Eastern Hemisphere
    2014: Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction will open in Las Vegas, Nevada, where the new retail experience will bring a bit more of New York City’s Times Square to MGM’s New York, New York Hotel & Casino
    2014: Hershey’s Chocolate World Attraction will open a second location in Shanghai, China, bringing the latest retail brand experience to the second largest confectionery market in the world

Hershey’s Chocolate World Global Footprint Grows for the Next 40 Years

To share the Hershey experience with more brand devotees around the world, The Hershey Company continues to invest globally and expand its retail footprint around the world by launching the next generation Hershey’s Chocolate World retail experience. The new retail experience, which captures the excitement and imagination of the original global flagship location, will be packaged and exportable to new markets to reach new and loyal consumers across the globe.

Hershey’s Chocolate World retail footprint will expand in the next four to five months with the new stores opening in Las Vegas and China and plans for additional new locations worldwide over the next few years.

Current Hershey’s Chocolate World locations include: Hershey, Pa., New York City, Chicago, Niagara Falls, Shanghai, Singapore and Dubai.

USA Flight School Sets World Record for Master Instructors


Mesa, Arizona (PRWEB) August 30, 2013

Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), a USA-based flight school with training centers in Arizona, Texas and Europe, announced today setting a record on their status as the world leader in number of specialized master instructor pilots on staff. APS now has five Master Certified Flight Instructor - Aerobatic (MCFI-A) instructors on their team, more than any other training organization.

For perspective on this achievement, there are approximately 97,000 CFIs in the United States. Fewer than 800 of those aviation educators have achieved the status of Master CFI with only 32 of those instructors attaining the Master CFI - Aerobatic designation. "Aviation Performance Solutions (APS) places significant and well-placed emphasis on the critical importance of instructor professionalism, quality assurance and instructional effectiveness." said Sandy Hill, president and co-founder of the Master Instructor Continuing Education Program (MICEP), the international accrediting authority for the Master Instructor designation, "APS should be congratulated on being the established leader in having the most active MCFI-Aerobatic designated instructors on staff of any training organization in the world today."

The MICEP Master Instructor designation is a national accreditation recognized by the FAA and available to other flight instructors around the world. Candidates must demonstrate an ongoing commitment to excellence, professional growth, and service to the aviation community, and must pass a rigorous evaluation by a peer Board of Review. The process parallels the continuing education regimen used by other professionals to enhance their knowledge base while increasing their professionalism. Designees are recognized as outstanding aviation educators for not only their excellence in teaching, but for their engagement in the continuous process of learning -- both their own, and their students'. The designation must be renewed biennially and significantly surpasses the FAA requirements for renewal of the candidate's flight instructor certificate. In the words of former FAA Administrator Marion Blakey, "The Master Instructor accreditation singles out the best that the right seat has to offer."

ABOUT AVIATION PERFORMANCE SOLUTIONS

Aviation Performance Solutions LLC (APS), an Arizona USA limited liability company dba APS Emergency Maneuver Training, headquartered at the Phoenix-Mesa Gateway Airport in Mesa, Arizona USA, has trained over 5,500 professional pilots in fully comprehensive upset recovery skill development. For two decades, with additional training locations in Dallas (Texas USA) and The Netherlands (Europe) APS has been committed to giving professional pilots of all skill levels the highest quality upset prevention and recovery training available.

World War Z Faces Off Against 2013: Infected Wars in Apple’s iTunes Games Market


Austin, TX (PRWEB) May 31, 2013

June is shaping up to be a AAA zombie apocalypse month in Apple's iTunes Store - which game will be victorious? Two much anticipated mobile games for the iPhone, iPad, and iPod will be going head to head in Apples iTunes games market. Rarely do you have two AAA games being released so close together in the same genre. This may spell doom for the developers but fans of the zombie genre will surely be pleased.

In one corner you have Austin, TX based Action Mobile Games releasing 2013: Infected Wars in June. 2013: Infected Wars is the first ever full co-op action horror game for mobile devices. Displaying cutting edge graphics more familiar to console and pc gamers than mobile devices, James Petty President of Action Mobile Games says, We want to bridge the gap between the gaming experience console and pc game players have enjoyed for many years and bring that to mobile gamers by pushing Apples devices to their limits.

Many mobile games offer the ability to play with friends in limited game modes but surprisingly no mobile game studio until now has invested the time and resources to create a full co-op campaign like with 2013: Infected Wars. When asked if he thinks the mobile market will reward such a huge development risk James Petty says, I believe the mobile gaming community will show their support for a true co-op game experience with our feature set in such a fun genre, making our two years of development worth it in the end.

2013: Infected Wars Boasts Many Features Such As:
