Faithful Believers in Constitutional Freedoms and Online Privacy Celebrate!

God is awesome. Let’s share that knowledge with the world–one story at a time.”

— Dean Jones

LONDON, CENTRAL LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The Team at Godinterest is proud to announce the relaunch of its open publishing platform Godinterest.com, and pleased to once again become the publishing resource for so many thousands of our faithful online writers, readers and faith-based, global thought leaders.

Originally launched to great success in 2012 as an open online forum and publishing platform for an increasingly neglected faith-based global community, Godinterest.com has now upgraded its services and relaunched to further explore and celebrate the community’s Freedom of Expression through the direct promotion of their Freedom of Religion.

Godinterest Founder, Designer, Project Manager and grateful Christian Dad, Dean Jones, had this to say in reference to the relaunch-
“Godinterest gives occasion to a whole new set of conversations about religion in public life and represents the possibility of a common conversation among a diverse set of voices. ”

And while the entire team is eagerly anticipating spreading the word of our faith-based contributors with even greater ease, success, and global access for all, the Core Principles of Godinterest have always been and will remain-

• We firmly believe that all bloggers have the right to political speech, the right to express their political opinions, and should always maintain the right to express their political values.
• We firmly believe in protecting and promoting our freedom of religion or belief, even in the face of any and all governmental, administrative and/or non-state acting opposition.
• We further believe that our bloggers have the right to maintain their privacy, along with the option to remain anonymous if they so choose.
• Godinterest does not and will not ever exercise editorial oversight over the sites hosted on our service.

Godinterest is Here to Share the Good News of Our Faithful Contributors
In an overwhelmingly liberal dominated, global media maelstrom with increasingly “progressive” agendas, many of the largest internet platforms are currently being held hostage by an aggressively thuggish PC culture, which is now openly suppressing articles in defense of conservative values. Godinterest recognizes this blatant bias against even the most moderate conservative thought and is, therefore, always open to encouraging, promoting and openly publishing thoughtful, articulate and reasonable voices from the Right. The Godinterest editorial team is also always open to developing mutually productive partnerships with all of our faithful Christian denominations throughout the world in a sincere effort to multiple our forces in the ongoing struggle to share, promote and protect our common values.

In addition-
• We are committed to continuing to join hands with other conservative groups in the vital battle to protect and preserve our constitutional rights to free speech online.
• We are also committed to celebrating our Freedom of Expression through promotion of our Freedom of Religion, which remains an inalienable Constitutional right guaranteed and protected by the 1st Amendment- “Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.”
• All Godinterest users also deeply respect our Right to Privacy, as established and protected by the 4th Amendment to the US Constitution.
• We at Godinterest further acknowledge that our user’s online privacy–and their option to remain anonymous–is a sacred principle that we must always cherish and protect.

The Godinterest.com Upgrade
At its core Godinterest has always been an open online publishing platform where faith-based believers from all walks of life can read important, insightful stories on the topics that matter most to them, as well as positively interact with other believers across the globe. Our platform is also a forum where all of our faith-based contributors can also openly share their thoughts, ideas, opinions and values with a world that is increasingly being denied their point of view.
Now-
• Our bloggers and writers will be able to create multi-user blogs which promote convenient interaction.
• Our bloggers and writers will be able to create websites with time-stamped entries.
• Any user can now create up to 50 blogs per account
• All blogs are hosted by Godinterest and accessed from a subdomain of Godinterest.com.
• Blogs can now also be served from a custom domain privately owned by the user (ex: www.example.com) by using our DNS facilities to direct a domain to Godinterest's server.

We at Godinterest look forward to a blessed and rewarding future for all of our contributors, users, readers, and all of the faithful everywhere around the world!

Nueva traducción al español del galardonado libro para niños que promueve las habilidades científicas y de lectura

Sus ilustraciones realistas y hechos divertidos sobre los animales ayudan a las familias y a los educadores a crear interés por los temas CTIM

El viaje de un bebé mamífero a la madurez varía dramáticamente dependiendo de si es un oso o un murciélago, una musaraña o una foca, un hipopótamo o un humano.”

— la autora, Dia L. Michels

WASHINGTON, DC, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco, un título recomendado por NSTA y el Libro del Año de Creative Child Magazine, está siendo publicado de nuevo en español, en pasta suave, pasta dura y en formato eBook.

Publicado originalmente en inglés en el año 2002, este libro de 64 páginas ha sido alabado por maestros, bibliotecarios y educadores en museos. Su enfoque para enseñar ciencia por medio de la literatura ayuda a los niños a extraer contenido importante sobre la ciencia mientras fortalecen y practican su habilidad de lectura. El contenido se ajusta directamente a los Estándares Científicos de la Próxima Generación (NGSS, por sus siglas en inglés) y al currículum de primaria y de la escuela intermedia. Además de sus otros premios, este título ganó un Sello de Aprobación de la Fundación Young Voices (Voces Jóvenes).

El texto en español les ayuda a los lectores a desarrollar sus habilidades científicas y de lectura. De acuerdo con el Instituto de Política de Inmigración, "casi un tercio de todos los niños en los Estados Unidos de ocho años o menos están aprendiendo dos idiomas. Estos niños se benefician en gran manera de las oportunidades de aprendizaje temprano de alta calidad". Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco proporciona oportunidades de aprendizaje temprano para quienes hablan español y están aprendiendo inglés.

La universalidad del ciclo de vida es capturada de forma hermosa en este asombroso libro, descrito como "Completamente interesante" [Revista Foreword] y "¡Atractivo tanto visual como verbalmente!" [Academia Carnegie para la Educación de la Ciencia].

Si mi mamá fuera un ornitorrinco revela cómo catorce bebés mamíferos indefensos se convierten en adultos maduros. A diferencia de los reptiles, insectos y anfibios, todas las madres de mamíferos alimentan, protegen y les enseñan a sus crías—incluso cuando esas tareas a menudo desafían sus necesidades de sobrevivencia.

"El viaje de un bebé mamífero a la madurez varía dramáticamente dependiendo de si es un oso o un murciélago, una musaraña o una foca, un hipopótamo o un humano", explica la autora, Dia L. Michels. "A pesar de esas diferencias, cuando todos los mamíferos nacen son completamente indefensos. Todas las mamás mamíferas deben guiar a sus crías para que dejen de ser indefensos y pasen a la madurez. Conforme sus madres les enseñan a encontrar comida y albergue, los mamíferos sociales aprenden otra herramienta importante para la supervivencia: que son parte de una sociedad interconectada en la cual cada miembro ayuda a los demás. Los humanos no son ninguna excepción. Cuando nacen son más inmaduros que cualquier otro bebé y dependen bastante de su familia y de su comunidad. Este libro les ayuda a los niños a verse a sí mismos como miembros de un grupo en lugar de individuos solitarios".

Las historias de estos mamíferos bebés tratan temas científicos importantes, incluyendo percepción sensorial, identificación de infantes, hábitats, ciclos de vida, adaptación, ecología, metabolismo, anatomía, biomas, clasificación y sobrevivencia. La guía para el maestro expande y extiende el contenido científico e incluye actividades prácticas. Está disponible para ser descargada de forma gratuita en el sitio web de la casa editora. Los educadores también aprecian el glosario y las medidas métricas incluidas en el libro.

Este título ha sido utilizado en entornos educativos y también como un recurso de salud en las comunidades. Los Centros de Nacimientos, el Departamentos de Salud y las instalaciones maternas y de salud para niños lo comparten con los futuros padres y con familias que tienen niños pequeños. En el año 2011, el Departamento de Salud de Nuevo México compró 6,000 copias para un programa estatal diseñado para promover la vida familiar, la paternidad responsable y la lectura.

"¡Este es uno de los libros más interesantes que no son de ficción que he leído! Se correlaciona muy bien con nuestro currículum de ciencias y los recursos complementarios son amigables para los maestros", dice Sonya Smith, Coordinadora de Ciencias del programa de Fomento de las Ciencias en Maestros de la Escuela Intermedia, en el estado de Mississippi.

Dia L. Michels, escritora galardonada en ciencias y paternidad responsable con publicaciones internacionales, ha escrito o editado más de una docena de libros para niños y adultos. Además, da presentaciones en todo el país sobre lactancia en los mamíferos, ciencia familiar y crianza con apego. Puede comunicarse con ella en Dia@ScienceNaturally.com.

Andrew Barthelmes es un talentoso ilustrador y artista gráfico. Es el diseñador tras la galardonada serie de libros de ciencias y matemáticas Misterios de un minuto (One Minute Mysteries). Su trabajo ha aparecido en el New Yorker y en otras publicaciones. Él vive en Peekskill, NY con su esposa y sus tres hijos. Contáctelo en Andrew@ScienceNaturally.com.

ICO of the biggest blockchain university UBAI starts on January 15

UBAI, the biggest online university of blockchain and investing, is launching its own ICO that will last almost for 6 months, from January 15 to June 15.

The company is planning to raise $50,000,000 as for their hard cap and $1,000,000 for soft cap. The lock up period is 1 year both for company members and investors.”

— UBAI

TOKYO, JAPAN, January 16, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — UBAI, the biggest online university of blockchain and investing, is launching its own ICO that will last almost for 6 months, from January 15 to June 15.

For long term holders and bonus participants: tokens will be available for purchase directly through the personal account, however, UBAI coins will be frozen for 1 year. After that, on a monthly basis, 10% of tokens will be available for selling. Raised funds will be used for further development of the platform, as well as for its own blockchain, an extension of the team, and to cover the marketing and legal expenses related to the license application.

The company is planning to raise $50,000,000 as for their hard cap and $1,000,000 for soft cap. The lock up period is 1 year both for company members and investors. After that, each month holders will be able to sell 10% of their UBAI coins.The overall UBAI token supply is limited to 291.600.000.000, 70% will be sold during the token sale stage, 5% will be destined to the team and project advisors.

In particular, thanks to the mass adoption of the blockchain, skilled practitioners are now worth their weight in gold. More than 2000 companies all over the world are currently looking for decentralized ledger technology professionals. According to Techcrunch research, last year, freelance talent marketplace Upwork saw blockchain rise to the fastest-growing skill out of more than 5,000 skills in terms of freelancer billings — a year-over-year increase of more than 35,000 percent. These requests span ICO advisory services, engineering projects, and overall blockchain consultancy. It means that there are job opportunities not only for code writers or programmers.

What is UBAI?

UBAI is an Online University of Blockchain and Investing that was founded in the beginning of 2018 by a group of professionals from different fields that have direct or indirect relevance to blockchain industry. Meanwhile authors of the UBAI courses are the leading specialists in legal and financial planning, blockchain programming and other technical topics.

In the meantime of the course creation, the blockchain industry has suffered important changes, such as employment of new mechanisms, layers, hard forks, and even the approval of regulations. Authors of UBAI courses continue working on adding complementary material in order to keep up their students on the latest updates and news. Thus, one should understand that he or she is investing in already existing product that will be in demand for years. With UBAI courses people of all ages and from all social sectors will be able to change their professions or working positions for something more valuable and better rewarding.

UBAI’s strategy

UBAI team has opted for diversification – its platform will include not only online courses or news portal, but also a blockchain based diploma confirmation system, career development center together with the finance department that will deal with ICOs and STOs analysis.

Blockchain based diploma confirmation system

The idea of academic certificates on the blockchain is based on the fact that blockchain can serve as a decentralized permanent unalterable storage of all type of information or even assets. It is erroneous to think that blockchain is all about currency or payment system. UBAI’s diploma confirmation system will help educational institutions to build a secure and immutable database of the graduate certificates, thus helping ex-alumni to pursue successful careers. At the same time, companies will be protected from possible frauds. By the way, career records, achievements and any other valuable documentation may also be safely stored, and easily verified in any part of the world.

Career Development Center

UBAI is one of the few universities that has its own career development center. One thing is to offer education, and another thing is to put it on practice. Even in blockchain industry, it may cost time to find a position where one can apply recently acquired knowledge. UBAI has a list of partners and companies that are constantly looking for new employees or interns.

Finance Department
Another feature – is their analytical department. Currently, many inexperienced investors participate in ICOs without previously verifying them. Traders base the decision on a couple of articles and comments on Reddit or Twitter. As a result, people get fooled/scammed by commercials with superstars, like was the case with Mayweather. UBAI, in turn, studies not only the viability of the idea that ICO conducting company is trying to achieve but also its team experience and the existence of required skills to develop a decent product. For that purpose, UBAI employs both top-down and bottom-up methods of analysis.

E-Conference Platform
Additionally, UBAI team is working on a platform that would allow its users to assist to different conferences without having to travel thousands of miles. Thanks to VR technology it will be possible to become a part of the meeting and even interact with the surroundings remotely. VR technology will be also used in the education process, as a result, a virtual university will be created.

Unicoin.tv
Finally yet importantly, with its own news media platform called Unicoin.tv, UBAI seeks to protect internet users from false or fake news. According to The Washington post,” if technology continues its current advance, we may soon face totally convincing videos showing events that never happened — created so effectively that even experts will have trouble proving they’re fakes. At a business and personal level, it could be equally dangerous – fake statements by chief executives or banking officials could throw financial markets into turmoil.”

Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD Serves Frontline on the Fight Against Endometrial Cancers

Tiffany Troso-Sandova

ROCKVILLE CENTRE, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, January 15, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD is a cancer-fighting vanguard, helping women fight off breast and gynecological cancer. In addition to her patient care and clinical work, she frequently speaks at conferences and educates the masses, doing her part to make real change in the fight against cancer.

Last year, Dr. Troso-Sandoval was a headline speaker at a partnership event through Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center and Molloy College, focusing on endometrial cancer. Along with notable speakers like Jennifer J. Mueller MD and Richard M. Gewanter MD, Dr. Troso-Sandoval spoke on improving outcomes for endometrial cancer while maintaining quality of life.

Her work was also highlighted in the Long Island Pulse, a New York publication seeking out the best of the best professionals in their respected fields. The magazine shined a spotlight on Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD and her dedication to helping women in the Long Island area stave off cancer with revolutionary treatments. It spoke on her work in treating ovarian cancer, breast cancer, cervical cancer, and uterine cancer which plague women today.

“Women are susceptible to a range of diseases, and cancers are always at the top of the list of most-dreaded. Our work at the Memorial Sloan Kettering Cancer Center is cutting edge. Our goal is to give the best, most comprehensive and effective cancer care to each patient, while also paving the way for more effective treatments in the future,” says Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD.

The Harsh Reality of Endometrial Cancer

Endometrial cancer is a disease of the uterus, cancer cells ultimately forming in the uterine lining. This type of cancer can be brought on by alterations in hormone production, though its exact cause is still unknown. Women may experience pelvic pain or notice a slight bloody discharge when afflicted with endometrial cancer, and the consequences can be extremely severe if not recognized promptly.

Life with endometrial cancer is a frightening reality for many women, but Dr. Troso-Sandoval goes the extra mile to get to know her patients on a personal level. She is the type of physician who will provide a comprehensive explanation of how she will treat not only the cancer, but the whole patient.

How Oncologists like Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD Change the Game

Many physicians and medical specialists overlook the fact that their patients are human and need personal attention and care when facing such a devastating battle. Dr. Troso-Sandoval takes the time to personalize her cancer treatments and also management of the side effects of those treatments.

“My patients all receive individual and personalized approaches to fighting their cancer. Understanding each individual on a personal level is vital in choosing the right form of treatment,” says Tiffany Troso-Sandoval MD.

Endometrial cancer is aggressive, but with vanguard oncologists like Dr. Troso-Sandoval, women in the Long Island area have a fighting chance for a cancer-free life.

New York State Vapor Association Responds To Governor Cuomo's Proposed E-Cigarette Regulations

News from New York State Vapor Association, Albany NY

NYSVA, a trade organization representing independent vape shops in NY, responds to Gov. Cuomo's e-cigarette control measures announced in his 2019 budget.

WEST CHAZY, NY, UNITED STATES, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Saturday, Governor Cuomo announced restrictions on e-cigarettes and vapor products in his proposed 2019 New York State Budget, in an effort to stem use by minors. Included in these proposals are, raising the age of sale to 21; licensing retailers; ending sales at pharmacies; clarifying the Health Department's ability to ban certain flavors; restricting display and packaging to adult-only stores; restricting discounts offered by manufacturers and retailers.

The New York State Vapor Association (NYSVA) is a trade organization representing independent vape shops. NYSVA president, Michael Frennier responded, "We support legislation to keep tobacco and vapor products out of the hands of minors, including retail licensing, stricter penalties for selling to minors, and stringent age verification–avenues that we wish the State would take. Surprisingly, there are no consequences for minors who smoke or vape as there is with underage drinking. Penalties for teen use, and adults who give or sell to minors, would deter many and should be the law."

NYSVA applauds New York for taking steps to help reduce youth smoking rates, but expressed concern that some of the proposals may unintentionally increase smoking rates for youth and adults. NYSVA strongly opposes banning e-liquid flavors because vast research shows flavors are key to an adult's successful transition from combustible tobacco. The NYSVA also opposes raising the age to 21, because it impedes 18-20 year old adults from making the choice to switch to a product that is at least 95% less hazardous than cigarettes (according to Public Health England, which publicly encourages vaping in the UK). Plus, studies from Weill Cornell Medicine, Yale, and the National Bureau of Economic Research showed that raising the age to 21 for vapor products increases the rate of teen cigarette smoking.

"Most of our members are ex-smokers who take the task of helping adults switch to a much less harmful product very seriously, and we don't want to see another generation become addicted to nicotine." Frennier added, "We are hopeful that a balance between adults who need them and minors who shouldn't use them can be met with a common sense approach."

Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) to Hold 39th Annual Conference

ADAA logo

More than 1,400 of the world’s leading mental health researchers and clinicians will convene in Chicago

CHICAGO, IL, USA, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Although highly treatable, only one-third of the 40 million adults, and one in eight children struggling with anxiety disorders, receive treatment.

To combat this staggering statistic, more than 1,400 international researchers and clinicians specializing in anxiety, depression, and related disorders will convene at the Anxiety and Depression Association of America’s (ADAA) Annual Conference. The conference will be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Chicago from March 28-31, 2019.

This annual conference, now in its 39th year, is hosted by ADAA. ADAA is the leading international nonprofit organization dedicated to promoting the prevention, treatment, and cure of anxiety, depression, and related disorders through education, training, and research.

“ADAA’s annual conference promotes scientific innovation and engages a diverse network of clinicians and researchers with backgrounds in medicine, psychology, social work, counseling, nursing, neuroscience, genetics, and epidemiology to advance mental health science and new treatments,” said Dr. Beth Salcedo, ADAA Board President.

Many of the world’s leading mental health experts will participate in more than 160 workshops, symposia, roundtables, and special sessions to address depression and a wide range of anxiety disorders including PTSD, OCD, substance abuse, and suicide prevention.

Breaking the cultural, racial, and socioeconomic barriers to treatment and the inflammatory processes in stress, anxiety, and depression will also be a focus of this year’s programming.

New this year is a pre-conference program on suicide prevention. Focused on the sharing of cutting-edge research and clinical initiatives aimed to improve the understanding of why people die by suicide, this day-long program will cover what can be done to begin reducing suicidal thoughts and behaviors. Leaders from the scientific, clinical, and advocacy sectors will discuss neuroscience, genomics, digital health, big data, dissemination and implementation of evidence-based treatments, and key funding priorities.

Also new this year is the Science Spotlight Series, which will feature researchers who are working to shape new directions in understanding and treating depression and anxiety disorders. The Ross Symposium, a key component of the conference, will bring together a group of experts with extensive experience in the clinical use of ketamine and psilocybin, their psychopharmacology, and potential substance abuse.

Through the conference’s 15 master clinician sessions, experts will present on relevant topics encountered in the practice setting including MDMA development for PTSD and the use of Ketamine in treating addiction and treatment-resistant depression.

Alan Schatzberg, MD, Stanford University School of Medicine’s Professor of Psychiatry and Behavioral Sciences, will deliver the keynote address. In his presentation, Potential Drugs of Abuse as Antidepressants and Anxiolytics: Pluses and Minuses, Dr. Schatzberg will review recent data and discuss key issues regarding how to balance risk-benefit both for individual patients and society at-large.

Programming on mindfulness, trauma, mental health apps, alternative therapies, telemental health, veteran-focused therapy, new and novel pharmacotherapies, and culturally sensitive therapy for diverse communities will also be offered.

“After four intensive days of learning, sharing, and networking, conference attendees will leave feeling more connected to their peers and better able to integrate research and practice into their communities,” Salcedo said. “This is critical as co-existing anxiety and depression can lead to substance use and suicide, and is considered the most disabling mental health disorder in the United States.”

For more details about special session offerings and registration information visit ADAA’s website.

Members of the media are invited to cover the conference and will have the opportunity to interview experts and attend all sessions. To register, email Lise Bram, ADAA’s Deputy Executive Director, at lbram@adaa.org or call 240.485.1016. Registration is limited to credentialed journalists and journalists who have assignment letters on the letterhead of a media organization. All media personnel must be registered and wear their conference badges while attending any conference session or activity. The conference program is available online and printed programs will also be available on site. Selected papers will be available electronically upon request. Media can make hotel reservations online.

The Anxiety and Depression Association of America (ADAA) is an international nonprofit membership organization (with more than 1,800 professional mental health members) and a leader in education, training, and research for anxiety, depression and related disorders. More than 38 million people from around the world visit the ADAA website annually to find current treatment and research information and to access free resources and support.

Bedford Massachusetts Drug Delivery Company Integral BioSystems Announces Japanese Patent Grant on OcuSurf™ Innovation

Specialty drug delivery company Integral BioSystems LLC has won a broad patent allowance by the JPO for its platform delivery innovation OcuSurf™

Whether you are using a new active drug ingredient or one that it tried-and-true, OcuSurf™ will allow you to maximize its efficacy”

— Dr. Shikha Barman

BEDFORD, MASSACHUSETTS, US, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Boston-area hybrid CRO/innovation company Integral BioSystems, has won a patent allowance from the Japanese Patent Office on one of its flagship inventions, OcuSurf™, a novel, patented, differentiated and improved formulation approach for medications to treat disorders of the ocular surface and the anterior chamber of the eye. Products formulated in Ocusurf™ are highly bioavailable and tissue-permeating, due to its ability to rapidly absorb into tissue. OcuSurf™ variants for other routes such as oral, dermal, rectal, and urology have been enabled with multiple small-molecule drugs. Due to the high tissue permeation enabled by OcuSurf™, this innovation is an excellent 505b2 strategy for drug reformulation, either to bridge the revenue gap for patent-expired products or to offer a path to render insoluble, impermeable drugs bioavailable.

The Details
A substantial number of ophthalmic drug products for disorders of the ocular surface are hydrophobic, or sparingly soluble in water, and formulated as suspensions. This results in less than 5% of each eye-drop actually being absorbed by the target tissue. Such formulations typically contain a high concentration of drug to achieve a therapeutic effect. OcuSurf™ nanostructured emulsions are formulated into mucosa-penetrating, tissue absorbed nanoparticles, melting at body temperature to release dissolved drug at the requisite tissue site, allowing much less drug to be administered for equivalent or better therapeutic effect.

Integral BioSystems is developing an ophthalmic pipeline utilizing this technology. As a business strategy, Integral invites licensing-based collaborations for other potential applications in ophthalmic, dermal or other routes that can benefit from this technology.

About Integral BioSystems
Since its formation in 2011, Integral BioSystems has established credibility in drug formulation, CMC consulting, analytical method development and methods qualification, as well as scale-up process engineering. Along with its strong presence as an ophthalmic product development CRO, the company also has expertise in other routes, including injectables, infusions, topical dermal gels/creams, and nanocrystals. Integral BioSystems provides expertise and know-how in developing both front-of-the-eye and back-of-the-eye products, offering complete development services in pre-formulation, including bioanalytical.

For companies seeking to develop a new product that is using a re-purposed drug, Integral offers its innovative delivery systems as licensable technologies to build value into prospective clients’ drug products through a 505b2 regulatory strategy. For companies seeking product life cycle management, Integral can help them quickly ascertain if Integral’s innovations can provide the desired improvements. With multiple billion dollar drug products going off-patent, this presents a cost effective way to develop an extended product life cycle with novel IP. In this manner, Integral will offer its insight and technological innovations in drug delivery to strategize and improve the customer’s product portfolio. To this effect, Integral BioSystems has been a development partner for both innovative and generic companies.

Key Pharmaceuticals Ltd to lead a workshop on Parallel Trade & Brexit during the 13th Annual Parallel Trade Conference

Industry expert Tushar Patel to lead a pre-conference workshop during Parallel Trade 2019, who will discuss Parallel Trade and Brexit.

LONDON, UNITED KINGDOM, January 14, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — The 13th Annual Parallel Trade conference, taking place in London on the 5th – 6th February 2019, will hold a particular place of significance due to Brexit and the UK officially leaving the EU on the 29th of March 2019.

Loro Parque Foundation contributes to the successful recovery of the Yellow-eared Parrot in Colombia

The population of these endangered birds has reached record numbers in the wild thanks to the financial support of the Foundation

Years of research into habitat use, diet, distribution, reproductive behaviour provided a solid foundation on the threats to the species and the wax palm, thus enabling a global conservation plan.”

— Rafael Zamora, Scientific Director of Loro Parque Fundación

PUERTO DE LA CRUZ, SANTA CRUZ DE TENERIFE, SPAIN, January 12, 2019 /EINPresswire.com/ — Although more than 8,000 kilometres separate the Canary Islands from Colombia, the Yellow-eared Parrot has a vital link with the Archipelago: the conservation work carried out by The Loro Parque Foundation to protect the species, which has contributed to its successful recovery.

The participation of the Foundation in the project to save the Yellow-eared Parrot, together with the ProAves Foundation of Colombia, has been fundamental in the achievement that today the wild population of these birds has multiplied and has reached record numbers. The story that has marked their survival began in the mid-1990s, when the Loro Parque Foundation supported the protection of the last 20 birds in Ecuador. In 1988 they had disappeared and it was feared that the species had become completely extinct; however, in the same year the Ognorhynchus project began with the aim of ensuring the survival of the species and its habitat in the Colombian Andes.

After a year-long search, a population of 81 individuals was found in the central Andes, in the community of Roncesvalles, whilst in January 2001 a second population of 63 individuals appeared in the foothills of the western Andes in Jardín, in the Department of Antioquia. In the years since the collaboration began, the Foundation has been the principal architect of an initiative that may become the most successful in all of South America. And, in fact, such has been the recovery rate that in 2010 the International Union for Conservation of Nature (IUCN) reduced the Yellow-eared Parrot's threat category from ‘critically endangered’ to ‘endangered’.

This animal has a close relationship with wax palms, Colombia's national tree, also threatened by cattle grazing and by its indiscriminate use in the celebration of Palm Sunday. Years of research into habitat use, diet, distribution, and reproductive behaviour have provided a solid foundation on the threats to the species and the wax palm, thus enabling a global conservation action plan.

Among the different initiatives implemented within the framework of this project, they were also able to count on the collaboration of the Vatican. In spite of the roots of this religious tradition, the close collaboration of the Church and a good educational programme have made it possible for everyone to use other alternatives today.
