New York Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Analyst or Broker with Proof A Bank or Real Estate Developer Is Lying About Profitability to Inflate the Stock Price to Call About Whistleblower Rewards

Call us at 866-714-6466 if you can prove senior management at a publicly traded company is lying to shareholders about profitability or liabilities.”

— New York Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 19, 2018 / — According to the New York Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If you are an employee of a publicly traded bank, mortgage lending company, a real estate developer or a stock broker analyst who watches a company-institution like this very closely-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if you can prove senior management is lying about profitability or liabilities. The whistleblower rewards for this type of information can be in the millions of dollars and frequently the whistleblower remains anonymous-his/her name is not disclosed." http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from mortgage, banking or real estate developer employees or insiders with proof of the following:

* A shopping center or multi-family apartment REIT CEO who is lying to shareholders about profits or long-term outlook.
* A bank CEO who is lying to their customers about mortgage fees, and or the buyer receiving the 'best possible interest rates' or title insurance costs or related fees.
* Bank senior management that is gouging bank mortgage borrowers on interest rates, mortgage fees, and associated products such as title insurance where the bank is receiving an illegal kickback.
* A publicly traded home builder that knowingly hires subcontractors that pay no taxes on their employees because-the employees are illegal aliens.
* A national title insurance company that is paying bribes or kickbacks to various real estate brokers nationwide so the brokers will force their clients into using an overpriced title insurance policy.

The New York Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you work as a manager for a bank, mortgage lender a real estate developer or a regional or national home builder or you are a stock broker analyst who has proof a company is lying to shareholders about profitability or liabilities please give us a call at 866-714-6466 and let's have a confidential chat about the SEC whistleblower program. This program is all about keeping publicly traded companies honest with their shareholders. Please don't sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth." http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant lying to their shareholders, Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a New York based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing anywhere in New York State can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.

Glosfer Successfully Establishes ‘Blockchain-based Proposal Evaluation System’ for Yeongdeungpo District


– Success Case of Local Government’s Blockchain Technology Adoption Following Nowon District’s Local Cryptocurrency

SEOUL, REPUBLIC OF KOREA, July 19, 2018 / — Glosfer (CEO Taewon Kim), a first-generation blockchain company in Korea, announced that it has successfully established a blockchain-based proposal evaluation system for Yeongdeungpo District of Seoul, following the commercialization of Nowon Cash, the local cryptocurrency the company developed for Nowon District.

Glosfer applied its blockchain technology to build a transparent proposal evaluation system for the local government that prevents falsification and removes any element of doubt bidders or residents may have in the bidding process.

This blockchain-based proposal evaluation system has garnered much attention as a new case of blockchain technology adoption by a local government.

“With the new system, we will be able to streamline the administrative work of relevant departments included in the proposal evaluation process,” said an official from the Yeongdeungpo District Office, adding that the “evaluation process is expected to become more transparent and reliable.”

CEO Taewon Kim of Glosfer commented that he is “thankful and happy to be able to commercialize the blockchain technology for another local government, having launched the Nowon Cash in Nowon District on February 1.” Kim said that the “proposal evaluation system for Yeongdeungpo District is also where blockchain technology can be applied,” adding that he will “make more effort to create a transparent and fair society.”

Previously, Glosfer helped Nowon District adopt blockchain-based local cryptocurrency, Nowon Cash. Since its adoption, Nowon Cash has been acknowledged as a success case with an increase in usage and volunteer work inquiries.

In-game Fortnite Interactive Tasks For Streamers Are Now Available On Play2Live

NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2018 / — Play2Live viewers will be able to compose tasks for streaming Fortnite games and choose different conditions thanks to Neural Networks. They can vote with LUC (Level Up Chain) tokens for tasks and form the price for the streamer’s work.

Play2Live (P2L) – the world’s first decentralized streaming platform for gamers and esports fans – announces that platform users can now assign interactive tasks to streamers in the Fortnite game and monitor their progress, creating a fundamentally new level of interaction between viewers and streamers, and form the economy of LUC token as the solid mean of payment within the platform.

Vladislav Arbatov, Technical Director of the project, confirms that any user of Play2Live platform can now offer a streamer in Fortnite to use specific weapons, equipment, skills within a specified timeframe or on a specific location.

"We are providing unique features for streamers and for their subscribers with the help of which they will be directly affecting the content produced by the streamer. In the game Fortnite, users can ask the player to eliminate 10 opponents using sniper rifles, conduct uninterrupted three hour streams, change the game altogether, etc. Any user can support someone else's tasks using LUC tokens or assign their own tasks." comments Vladislav Arbatov, CTO at Play2Live.

A streamer can select a particular task or several tasks at the same time. If their efforts are successful, they will receive rewards equal to the price set for the task, and in the event of failure, the tokens are returned to the viewers. The question is: how the system would determined if the streamer fulfilled the task? The neural network "watches" the stream and determines with the highest precision whether the task was actually carried out. In fact, the task itself is a smart contract with a deposit in LUC tokens, or an analog of the escrow function with a deposit in LUC tokens for the time allocated for the task performed by the streamer.

The most actively involved users will also receive rewards in tokens, which allows them to gamify their interactions within the platform. Basically, the more active users participate in various activities, the more tokens they earn. Currently, Play2Live is testing the system of interactive tasks on the Fortnite game, but soon, as Arbatov assures, the number of games allowing for interactive tasks will multiply.

Vladislav Arbatov, CTO at Play2Live:

"Interactive tasks are already working successfully in Overwatch, but soon they will be developed for each popular game, and by the end of the year, such functions will be available for more than 300 games. The internal system of neural network training will allow to add new types of events very quickly. We also plan to work closely with the user community and ask the fans what tasks they would consider to be most interesting for any particular game."

Play2Live aims to combine blockchain technology with its streaming services, whilst offering 15 sources of revenue for participants – three times more compared to the streaming industry leaders. Streamers will be able to monetize their content in 11 ways versus the 4-5 available on existing platforms.

About Play2Live

Founded in 2017, Play2Live aims to merge blockchain technology with streaming services. Its mission is to create an ecosystem where every participant — the viewer, the streamer, and the esports tournament organizer — is part of a seamless system that favors interaction among viewers and the diversity of monetization schemes. Everybody can be part of the peer-to-peer interaction, and everybody, even the viewer is able to earn money

Play2Live uses a token called Level Up Coin (LUC) which acts as a sole internal mean of payment within the system. It can be easily converted to other currencies, or to fiat money through a special exchange service/API.

Play2Live achieved hard-cap of token sale in March, 2018, raising $30M.

Why Use Custom Lab Furniture in a Clinical or Medical Laboratory?

Modular Sample Processing

Modular Sample Processing

Do you need conventional lab benches or custom lab furniture? Read these 5 situations when it is preferred to order custom lab furniture.

There are three watchwords that measure operational success: efficiency, accuracy, and safety.”

— Formaspace

AUSTIN, TEXAS, UNITED STATES, July 18, 2018 / — We take a look at the reasons why leading Formaspace laboratory customers, like Quest Diagnostics, Antech Diagnostics, and Ariosa Diagnostics, as well as hospital systems like Baylor Scott & White, choose custom Formaspace integrated laboratory furniture to create highly efficient, accurate and safe lab working environments.

integrated modular lab furniture

In contrast to small scientific laboratories (designed for individual teams of researchers), the needs of large, centralized laboratories are decidedly different.

While successful experimentation and discovery might be the primary objective in a research laboratory, in a large centralized laboratory environment, there are three watchwords that measure operational success: efficiency, accuracy, and safety.

Efficiency means the ability to process a large throughput of test samples.

Accuracy means the test results are correct, consistently repeatable, and as error-free as humanly possible.

Safety means that personnel are not exposed in any way to unhealthy conditions or suffer workplace accidents.

What’s the best way to obtain these high-performance objectives at your facility?

From our experience in working hands-on with hundreds of laboratory clients, ranging from Quest Diagnostics, Antech Diagnostics, and Ariosa Diagnostics, as well as hospital systems like Baylor Scott & White, we think the following five guidelines are the basis of achieving success:

1. Create order out of chaos at your clinical hospital or medical laboratory with Integrated Lab Services from Formaspace.
High-throughput clinical laboratories, by their nature, tend to be very capital intensive.

Laboratory testing companies, healthcare organizations, and government agencies are investing millions of dollars in equipment to automate the processing of test samples.

Compared test equipment found in small-scale labs, individual pieces of laboratory equipment in centralized clinical or medical laboratories tends to see much more use throughout the day; in some cases, laboratory workers will use the equipment in multiple shifts around the clock to keep up with demand.

As a result, the laboratory layout and furniture design need to have provisions to facilitate both regular and unexpected maintenance outages. To maintain productivity, maintenance technicians and engineers need to be able to access equipment, either by quickly removing it and replacing it with a spare unit or by performing maintenance service in situ – without disrupting or shutting down other parts of the laboratory.

Here is where things can get complicated.

Cato Transforms SD-WAN with Identity-Aware Routing

Cato Cloud: The Future of SD-WAN.Today

The Road to a Better Network

Identity awareness makes networking policies simpler, more flexible

Identity awareness enables end-to-end, business-process optimization by abstracting SD-WAN routing and traffic prioritization policies from network details.

Identity awareness adds business context to our end-to-end, converged MPLS alternative, enabling IT to align the network to today’s dynamic business requirements.”

— Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks

TEL AVIV, ISRAEL, July 18, 2018 / — Cato Networks, provider of Cato Cloud, the world's first secure, global SD-WAN as a service, introduced the first identity-aware routing engine for SD-WAN. Identity awareness abstracts policy creation from the network and application architecture, enabling business-centric routing policies based on user identity and group affiliation. Identity awareness headlines a series of SD-WAN enhancements Cato is introducing today for Cato Cloud.

“We founded Cato on the premise that IT needed a new kind of carrier, one where simplicity isn’t just a mission statement but part of the company’s DNA,” says Shlomo Kramer, co-founder and CEO of Cato Networks. “Identity awareness adds business context to our end-to-end, converged and secure MPLS alternative, making it easier and simpler for IT to align with today’s dynamic business requirements and deliver an optimal user experience, everywhere.”

Enterprises have long sought to make their networks easier — easier to configure, easier to deploy and easier to manage. Essential to that goal has been abstracting network policy definition to better mirror business context.

Routing policies across legacy networks were machine-aware, requiring IP addressing information that bore little resemblance to the business. SD-WANs popularized application-aware routing policies, bringing us closer to reflecting business context in our networks. Identity-aware routing completes this evolution by utilizing organizational entities. With identity awareness, networking and security policies can direct traffic or restrict resource access based on team, department, and individual users.

Cato implements identity-aware routing seamlessly without changing the network infrastructure or the way users work. Cato dynamically correlates Microsoft Active Directory (AD) data, across distributed AD repositories, and real-time AD login events to associate a unique identity with every packet flow. Organizational context, such as groups and business units, is derived from the AD hierarchy.

Adding identity attributes to networking policies allows Cato to deliver:
* Business process QoS where prioritization is based not just on application type but the specific business process. Business-critical voice calls, such as from executive or sales, can be prioritized over other calls; file transfers, normally given low priority, can be prioritized when involving business-critical processes, such as an engineering team transferring design files for an impending product release.

* Highest level of policy abstraction where route policy definition can use familiar groups, such as departments, teams, and usernames. Identity naturally extends network policies to the user regardless of the particular devices being used or the location — whether in the office or on the road. This simplifies network management as policies are easier to define, and fewer policies need be instantiated and maintained.

* Business-centric network visibility allows detailed insight into the activity for all business entities — sites, groups, hosts, office users and mobile users. IT can quickly see how business entities use the network to help with network planning and scaling.


Along with identity awareness, Cato is introducing today numerous enhancements and improvements to Cato Cloud's SD-WAN capabilities. New or enhanced features include:

* Multi-segment, policy-based routing dynamically selects the optimum path at each segment — the first mile, middle mile, and last mile. Segment-specific protocol acceleration technologies maximize global throughput. Using the robust DPI engine underlying its converged security solution, Cato is able to detect and classify hundreds of SaaS and datacenter applications regardless of port, protocol, or evasive technique and without SSL inspection. Applications are routed based on real-time link quality or preferred transport.

* Real-time network analytics expands Cato robust reporting for advanced troubleshooting. IT managers can view throughput, jitter, packet loss, latency, packet discarded, and dropped indicators with graphs for both upstream and downstream traffic as well as the top hosts and applications for real-time and historical traffic.

* Affordable and simple high availability (HA) deployment has been expanded to include more HA options. Cato Socket, Cato’s SD-WAN appliance, supports a broader mix of active/active and active/passive failover configurations for MPLS and Internet connections. Cato’s Affordable HA carries no additional recurring charge and deployment is simple with zero-touch provisioning and needing just a private or public IP address.

* Intelligent last-mile resilience has been improved to include flow-by-flow packet duplication and fast packet recovery as part of Cato’s Multi-Segment Optimization. Last-mile congestion, a significant cause of packet loss, is also mitigated through advanced QoS support for upstream/downstream bandwidth.

* Cloud and WAN traffic optimization using Cato’s Multi-Segment Optimization reduces latency by routing traffic along the optimum path to the destination site (WAN traffic) or to the entrance of the cloud service (cloud traffic). A variety of TCP enhancements increase throughput when accessing cloud and WAN resources.

Cato revolutionized the industry with the introduction of the first secure, cloud-based SD-WAN service. Since then Cato expanded the comprehensive set of converged security services in Cato Cloud with the Cato Threat Hunting System (CTHS), IPS, and more. Identity awareness and the rest of the enhancements being introduced today build on that momentum. All features are currently available.

Cato Networks provides organizations with a cloud-based and secure global SD-WAN. Cato delivers an integrated networking and security platform that securely connects all enterprise locations, people, and data. Cato Cloud cuts MPLS costs, improves performance between global locations and to cloud applications, eliminates branch appliances, provides secure Internet access everywhere, and seamlessly integrates mobile users and cloud datacenters into the WAN. Based in Tel Aviv, Israel, Cato Networks was founded in 2015 by cybersecurity luminary Shlomo Kramer, co-founder of Check Point Software Technologies and Imperva, and Gur Shatz, co-founder of Incapsula.

Strategies For The $17 Billion Major Orthopedic Implants Market

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, July 18, 2018 / — Manufacturers of major orthopedic implant have a wide range of strategies available to them, The Business Research Company's new report Global Major Orthopedic Market Strategies And Opportunities 2018 has shown. The strategies are aimed at both boosting the market, which is growing at only 3% a year, and at gaining market share.

Acquisition is a key strategy being pursued by companies such as Zimmer Biomet, Stryker, and Smith & Nephew, though with varying objectives. Smith & Nephew is strategically acquiring companies to expand its business in established markets such as the USA, especially with a view to gaining a foothold in the field of orthopedic robotic surgery. Acquisition is the first priority of Stryker Corporation, which has made more than 40 acquisitions in the last six years; most recently these have been aimed at enhancing its product portfolio, guided by core business adjacency. Strategic alliances are another possibility. This strategy is being pursued by Depuy Syntes. Its alliance with Value Stream Partners, LLC, enables the company to support providers, healthcare systems, and governments with a triple aim of improving clinical outcomes, increasing patient satisfaction and lowering overall costs.

Organic growth strategies range from innovation to cost transformation. Zimmer Biomet is spending 5% of its total sales revenue on research and development, while B. Braun Melsungen's R&D is focused on new products in order to maintain and expand its customer base. Stryker has a detailed strategy for cost transformation involving product line rationalization, indirect procurement, global enterprise resource planning (ERP) system implementation, shared services and manufacturing site consolidation.

Download a sample of the report at:

Other strategies are strongly suggested by the market numbers. One is to focus on knees, rather than hips. The market currently splits 53.4% knees, 46.6% hips, but the knee segment is growing faster, so that by 2022 the split will be 55% knees, 45% hips, and the knee segment will have grown by nearly $1 billion more of annual sales than the hip segment. Again, a focus towards polymers rather than metals is likely to pay dividends, the numbers suggest.
