CMIG & Sina Hold Business Leaders Summit in Davos

DAVOS, SwitzerlandJan. 25, 2018 /PRSubmissionSite/ — On Jan. 23rd, China Minsheng Investment Group (CMIG), together with Sina, a leading online media company, held the 2018 Business Leaders Summit in Davos, Switzerland. Sir Angus Stewart Deaton, the Senior advisor of CMIG and the Nobel Laureate in economics in 2015, delivered a keynote speech on the Chinese economy from the perspective of Happiness Economics.

Deaton pointed out that in the past 10 years, China’s economy has been growing at a high speed, and residents’ happiness has gradually increased. Meanwhile, the latest Gallup data shows that China’s leadership is preferred to America’s leadership by much of the world.

He also noted that China’s current elderly population is rapidly growing and the living and healthcare arrangements must be paid attention to.

Deaton said, In China, economic growth has been very rapid, so that children are much better off than their parents and can afford to support their parents or grandparents financially, such as housing, accommodation and health care, even when they live independently.

This is an area where CMIG is doing good work, expanding the network of in-home care for the elderly, and providing the market opportunity for children to finance the happy and independent living of their parents and grandparents,”Deaton added.

Wang Hui, Chairman of CMIG Futurelife, gave her solution at the summit for Chinese commercial elderly care — communities. She said, “Communities, where most people spend the longest time and which relates most closely to people’s daily life, constitute a major platform for consumption upgrades. Meanwhile, consumption upgrades and commercial innovation in communities can most directly improve the well-being of their members.”

CMIG Futurelife, a crucial platform of CMIG in upgrading deployment of community-based consumption and in-home aged care, is the largest enterprise in China engaging in community management and services. So far, CMIG Futurelife has already established a nationwide three-tier urban aged care network, an online aged care services platform, and an industrial alliance.

Entrepreneurs and scholars including Zhang Yaqin, president of Baidu, Honson To, chairman of KPMG Asia Pacific region and China, etc. were present at the summit.

CMIG was founded by 59 leading private companies in 2014 with registered capital of 50 billion yuan.

GoLookUp’s Unclaimed Money Search Helps to Discover Lost Funds Across the USA

WILMINGTON, Del.Jan. 22, 2018 /PRSubmissionSite/ — With nearly 60 billion dollars tied up in various funds and government agencies, millions of Americans are unaware that they are entitled to unclaimed money left behind by them or their relatives. GoLookup’s Unclaimed Money Search uses advanced cross-referencing of public records to help people find and retrieve the money that is lawfully theirs.

While it may sound a bit strange to some people, the term “abandoned money” is often used by different authorities to describe unclaimed money left behind by U.S. citizens. The abandoned money refers to funds that are not claimed by their owners or an owner’s relatives after it has been left behind.

While most try to keep track of their funds, sometimes it is difficult to do so after it has been spread across different establishments such as pension funds, life insurance agencies and other state and government branches. In order to help retrieve lost money, the GoLookUp website allows users to search for it in an easy-to-use search engine that can help millions of Americans.

How can one use the unclaimed money search?

In order to seek, find and retrieve lost funds, GoLookUp allows users to conduct a nationwide search using three personal details: first name, last name and the state that may have the lost funds. Within minutes, the fast and nationwide search engine scans and aggregates information from millions of public records in order to find unclaimed money.

The unclaimed money search seeks funds in various places such as the following:

  • State-held unclaimed property
  • Life insurance
  • Savings bonds (only in the U.S.)
  • Pensions
  • Uncashed paychecks
  • Forgotten bank accounts
  • Tax refunds

Due to state and national laws requiring each state to refund unclaimed money to its rightful owners, each person has a right to claim abandoned money that belongs to them. This unclaimed money search is available not only in regards to “young money” but also money that belongs to a deceased person and should be transferred to his or her living relatives.

With GoLookUp’s unlimited unclaimed money search, one can check if he or she has the right to funds left behind by deceased family members. After the discovery of such funds, GoLookUp will also provide the necessary paperwork to claim the funds and allow everyone to receive the money that is rightfully theirs.

About Platinum Jewelry 

Platinum is the ideal choice for red carpet jewelry because it holds diamonds and precious gemstones more securely than any other metal. It is not only the highest quality metal, but its density makes it one of the most durable and enduring precious metals. Platinum is also naturally white, unlike white gold, which means it will not cast any tint onto a diamond or gemstone, allowing the stone’s genuine color to sparkle brightly.

pSemi Will Drive Semiconductor Integration as a Murata Company and Will Expand Its Engineering Team to Support Its Growth Strategy

SAN DIEGOJan. 18, 2018 /PRSubmissionSite/ — Peregrine Semiconductor Corporation today announces its corporate name change to pSemi™ Corporation, a Murata company focused on semiconductor integration. The name change coincides with two major milestones: the company’s 30-year anniversary of RF-CMOS innovation and the shipment of its 4 billionth chip. pSemi will serve as Murata’s semiconductor arm and is tasked with growing rapidly to support its expanding product portfolio and the hiring of engineers and professionals globally.

pSemi Press Release PRSubmissionsite

 

The new name is derived from Peregrine Semiconductor and reflects its proud 30-year history. pSemi will have the same experienced semiconductor team at the helm, but it will have a broader scope and an expanded product portfolio. Building on its strong foundation in RF integration, pSemi’s product portfolio will span power management, connected sensors, optical transceivers, antenna tuning and RF frontends.

“We’ve challenged the pSemi team to broaden their scope, increase their intellectual property (IP) portfolio and grow on a global scale to support more semiconductor innovations,” says Norio Nakajima, senior executive vice president, module business unit at Murata. “As a Murata company, pSemi will leverage the breadth of Murata’s manufacturing and technology leadership, while maintaining a level of autonomy that accelerates its path to semiconductor integration. pSemi will serve as the hub for Murata’s semiconductor activities, and we are investing in its aggressive growth strategy to fuel our move into more advanced and intelligent modules.”

Under the new name, pSemi celebrates its 30-year anniversary of RF-CMOS semiconductor technology innovation and the shipment of its 4 billionth chip. The 4 billionth chip was shipped in an order to Samsung. In January 1988, the company’s founders published a research paper that served as the foundation for Peregrine’s UltraCMOS® technology platform. This paper was the first of many semiconductor technology innovations the company would build upon over its history.

“As pSemi celebrates these significant milestones, we reflect on the company’s history,” says Stefan Wolff, CEO of pSemi. “Over a span of three decades, many industry firsts were achieved, such as CMOS switches, SOI power amplifiers and mmWave beamforming. Our patent portfolio continues to grow and is now ranked as one of the technology world’s most valuable patent portfolios—and finally, we became a Murata company. The launch of pSemi is the next chapter in this company’s history. I am grateful to Murata for selecting us for this important growth strategy, and I am honored to lead this incredible team forward. With pSemi, we are building the ‘dream team’ of engineers, and we need more talented people to join us.”

With the new name, pSemi also launches a new logo and company website. The name change is effective immediately and will be rolled out across new products. Legacy Peregrine Semiconductor products will remain branded under the Peregrine Semiconductor name and logo and will be supported by the same sales teams, distributors and applications engineers.

GC Pharma Confirms Phase 2/3 Clinical Trial of New Protein Therapy for Hepatitis B

First Recombinant Treatment for Most Common Liver Transplantation Risk

YONGIN, South Korea, Jan. 18, 2018 /PRSubmissionSite/ — GC Pharma (formerly known as Green Cross Corporation) (KRX: 006280), a South Korean biopharmaceutical company, today announced that it will proceed with a Phase 2/3 clinical trial for GC1102 (also known as Hepabig-gene), the company’s investigational recombinant hepatitis B immune globulin for preventing the recurrence of hepatitis B virus (HBV) infection following liver transplantation.

HBV infection remains a major global issue, affecting up to 350 million people world-wide. Chronic hepatitis B patients are at considerably high risk for the development of cirrhosis and hepatocellular carcinoma. Liver transplantation is the treatment option for patients with liver failure and hepatocellular carcinoma. Approximately 1400 liver transplants are performed annually in South Korea alone. In the absence of prophylaxis or treatment, HBV reinfection and hepatitis B recurrence occurs in 80% of people who undergo orthotopic liver transplantation within 6 months.

“Currently available treatments that are effective for hepatitis B recurrence following liver transplantation are hepatitis B immune globulin derived from human plasma. GC1102 – does not contain plasma-based additives – may offer innovative and more effective alternatives, as there are no other recombinant treatments available,” said EC Huh, Ph. D., president of GC Pharma. “We believe GC1102 has potential to change the current treatment paradigm for hepatitis B patients.”

The clinical 2/3 trial is expected to take around 5 years to complete, with patient enrollment beginning in early 2018.

About GC Pharma

GC Pharma (formerly known as Green Cross Corporation) is a biopharmaceutical company that delivers life-saving and life-sustaining protein therapeutics and vaccines. Headquartered in South Korea, GC Pharma is the largest plasma protein product manufacturer in Asia and has been dedicated to quality healthcare solutions more than half a century. Green Cross Corporation updates its corporate brand as GC Pharma in early 2018. Green Cross Corporation remains the company’s registered, legal name.

This release includes forward-looking statements, which express the current beliefs and expectations of GC Pharma’s management. Such statements speak only as of the date on which they are made and the Company undertakes no obligation to update or revise any forward-looking statement, whether as a result of new information, future events or otherwise.

Launched as a due diligence tool in 2006, the RepRisk Platform has grown to be the largest database of its kind globally and supports clients in quickly and easily identifying ESG risks in their business.

Alexandra Mihailescu Cichon, Head of Sales and Marketing, shares: “The idea behind the RepRisk Platform occurred when we were still a consulting firm. A client asked us to prepare a list of around 100 companies exposed to severe ESG risks that could then pose reputational, compliance, or financial risks to our client.

For that assignment, we devised the systematic methodology, which we use to this day, to identify and assess companies. The Platform was launched thereafter, and what started with that original list of 100 has now grown to 100,000 companies exposed to ESG risks – a milestone we are incredibly proud of.”

“It doesn’t stop with the 100,000 companies, though,” adds Nicole Streuli-Fürst, Head of Operations and Research. “The RepRisk Platform grows daily, as our artificial intelligence tool and team of analysts capture and analyze new information based on our issues and event-driven research process. Every day, we screen sources and stakeholders in 16 languages and add up to 50 new companies exposed to ESG risks for the first time.”
