Perhaps the dominance of EDI over Internet-based e-procurement in the manufacturing sector accounts for this result. Other studies that examine Swedish firms find that access to broadband is associated with increases in productivity of 3.6 percent for manufacturing and services firms
Grafix® Demonstrates Overwhelming Efficacy in Landmark Stem Cell Study for the Treatment of Diabetic Foot Ulcers Grafix closes three times as many wounds as standard of care - the largest relative improvement ever reported in a multi-center, randomized, controlled clinical trial for DFU COLUMBIA, Md. - August 13,2013 - Osiris Therapeutics, Inc. (NASDAQ: OSIR), reported today that its multicenter, randomized, controlled clinical trial comparing the safety and effectiveness of Grafix® to standard of care in patients with chronic diabetic foot ulcers had met the pre-specified stopping rules for overwhelming efficacy as determined by the data monitoring committee during a planned interim analysis. For the primary endpoint, 62% of patients receiving Grafix had complete wound closure compared to only 21% (p<0.0001) of patients who received conventional treatment for their wounds - a relative improvement of 191% and the largest ever reported from such a study. A total of 131 patients were enrolled with the interim analysis being conducted on the first 97 to complete the trial. The trial also reached statistical significance in favor of Grafix on all top-line secondary endpoints, demonstrating faster wound closure and a reduction in the number of treatments needed to achieve wound closure. In the crossover phase of the trial, patients whose wounds failed to close after 12 weeks of standard of care had an 80% closure rate when switched to Grafix. Importantly, patients randomized to receive standard of care were 74% more likely to experience an adverse event than those receiving Grafix (p=0.008). As a result, the blinded phase of the trial is being discontinued immediately and all patients randomized to the control arm will be offered treatment with Grafix. “Today, Osiris has established a new standard in diabetic wound care and has demonstrated to the world the tremendous impact stem cell products can have in medicine,” said C. Randal Mills, Ph.D., Chief Executive Officer. “Diabetic foot ulcers afflict 25% of all diabetics and are responsible for more hospitalizations than any other diabetic complication. With 25 million diabetics in the United States, the cost to our health care system is enormous. Through this rigorous study we have shown that Grafix can heal more patients, in less time, and with fewer complications.”
Date introduced June 10, 2013 Climate Change Greenhouse gas emissions have an impact on the planet’s balance of land, ocean, and air temperatures. Most of Apple’s corporate greenhouse gas emissions come from the production, transport, use, and recycling of its products. Apple seeks to minimize greenhouse gas emissions by setting stringent design-related goals for material and energy eﬃciency. The chart below provides the estimated greenhouse gas emissions for the 11-inch MacBook Air over its life cycle. Greenhouse Gas Emissions for 11-inch MacBook Air Recycling, 1% Transport, 5% The 11-inch MacBook Air is designed with the following features to reduce environmental impact: Production, 75% Customer use, 19% • Arsenic-free display glass • Mercury-free LED-backlit display • Brominated flame retardant–free Total greenhouse gas emissions: 320 kg CO2e • PVC-free2 • Recyclable aluminum enclosure Meets ENERGY STAR® Version 5.2 requirements Achieves a Gold rating from EPEAT3 Energy Eﬃciency Because one of the largest portions of product-related greenhouse gas emissions results from actual use, energy efficiency is a key part of each product’s design. Apple products use powerefficient components, and software that intelligently powers them down during periods of inactivity. The result is that MacBook Air is energy efficient right out of the box. The 11-inch MacBook Air outperforms the stringent requirements of the ENERGY STAR Program Requirements for Computers Version 5.2. Using only 5.9W in idle with the display on, it consumes less power than any Mac, and consumes 49 percent less energy than the original MacBook Air.

In the context of today’s changing fiscal landscape on both the state and federal level, the Metro North REB is entering a stage of development that is guided by new opportunities as well as challenges. As it moves forward, the REB must identify creative new approaches, consider diverse sources of funding, and streamline existing systems to optimize efficiency. In addition, undertaking a renewed philosophy of continuous improvement and innovation in program implementation will be crucial to adjusting approaches in workforce development to align with the ever-changing economy. Historically, the education and workforce development systems have been only sporadically, marginally, or indirectly connected to business needs. Although some components of the workforce development system (notably community-based training and employment programs), have a long history of aligning their training with strong employer partnerships, the K-12 and college education systems have been grounded in a philosophy of preparing people for life, by providing a broad, general education, and only targeting training to specific occupations later in the post-secondary experience. In addition, education and workforce development have struggled to keep up with changing technologies and trends in industry, often lacking critical information about where career opportunities exist and what skills and abilities are necessary to take advantage of those options. As a result, education and training are often disconnected from real-time employer needs, and as a result, unemployed youth and adults often lack the necessary skills to enter those jobs that do exist, creating a growing class of disconnected or never connected workers.
On May 17, 2013, in Bridgeport, Connecticut, an accident occurred on Metro-North’s New Haven Line, when an eastbound Metro-North train of 8 cars, traveling 74 mph, derailed and came to rest on an adjacent track. Approximately 20 seconds later, a westbound Metro-North train on that adjacent track struck the derailed train. As a result of the accident, more than 50 people, some seriously injured, were hospitalized, rail operations were suspended, and millions in property damage occurred. • On May 28, 2013, a second accident occurred when a Metro-North train in West Haven, Connecticut, that was traveling 70 mph, struck and killed a Metro-North maintenance-ofway (MOW) employee who was part of a roadway work group performing railroad maintenance on a construction project. • On July 18, 2013, a third accident occurred when a CSX Transportation freight train derailed while traveling over Metro-North’s system. No one was injured, but property damage was significant. • On December 1, 2013, the fourth accident occurred when a Metro-North train of 7 cars traveling south from Poughkeepsie, New York, to Grand Central Terminal in New York City, derailed as it approached the Spuyten Duyvil Station. All cars derailed and the front cab came to rest close to the Harlem River. Four passengers were killed, and more than 70 were injured. Rail operations were suspended, and millions of dollars in property damage alone was sustained. On December 3, 2013, 2 days after the fourth and most serious of these accidents, FRA sent a letter to MTA expressing support for Governor Andrew Cuomo’s directive that MTA hold a safety stand-down, and directing Metro-North to implement a Confidential Close Call Reporting System (C3RS) (Appendix 2). Additionally, FRA issued Emergency Order 29 and Safety Advisory 2013-08. • Emergency Order 29, issued on December 6, 2013, required Metro-North to take immediate action to prevent excessive train speeds by identifying and prioritizing highrisk areas, modifying its existing signal system to ensure speed limits are obeyed, and 1 requiring a higher level of engagement and communication among operating crewmembers in areas in which major speed restrictions are in place. • Safety Advisory 2013-08, issued on December 10, 2013, urged railroads to provide additional training, increase the frequency of operational testing, and reinforced the importance of communication between crew members. The purpose was to ensure that all railroads adhere to Federal regulations and railroad operating rules regarding maximum authorized train speed limits. On December 16, 2013, FRA launched Operation Deep Dive, an assessment of Metro-North’s operations and safety compliance. More than 60 technical and human factor experts comprising 14 teams, conducted a 60-day comprehensive safety assessment of Metro-North. With assistance from the Federal Transit Administration, these experts reviewed and assessed Metro-North’s safety-related processes and procedures, its compliance with safety regulations and requirements, and its overall safety culture. In assessing Metro-North, the Deep Dive team evaluated:...
course of the investigation. On December 1, 2013, about 0719 eastern standard time, southbound Metro-North Railroad (Metro-North) passenger train number 8808 derailed at milepost 11.35 on track number 2 of the Metro-North Hudson Line in The Bronx, New York. Train movements on this line are governed by a traffic control system. The train originated in Poughkeepsie, New York with a destination of Grand Central Station in New York City. It consisted of seven passenger cars and one locomotive at the rear pushing the train. As a result of the derailment, 4 passengers died and 59 persons were transported to local hospitals for injuries. Metro-North estimated there were about 115 passengers on the train at the time of the derailment. Damage was estimated by Metro-North to be in excess of $9 million. The weather at the time of the accident was reported as 39° F with cloudy skies. Figure: Aerial view of accident scene National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB) investigators have completed the on-scene work in The Bronx. The investigation will continue at the NTSB headquarters in Washington, D.C. Preliminary results of the investigation include: The derailment occurred in a 6 degree left hand curve where speed was limited to 30 mph. Estimated train speed at the time of the derailment was at 82 mph. Detailed inspection and testing of the signal system, train brakes, and other mechanical equipment did not identify any anomalies. An inspection of the track in the derailment area did not identify any pre-accident anomalies. All cars on the train and the locomotive derailed. Between December 1 and 11, 2013, investigators completed interviews of train crews and first responders. Interview transcripts will be included in the public docket upon release. Locomotive event recorders were sent to the NTSB laboratory in Washington, D.C. for further analysis. The parties to the investigation include the Federal Railroad Administration, Metro-North Railroad, New York Public Transportation Safety Board, Teamsters Local 808, New York Police Department, New York Fire Department, and Bombardier Transportation. The Association of Commuter Rail Employees (ACRE) was initially designated as a party. However, because one of ACRE’s senior officials made unauthorized comments on the investigation to the media, ACRE was removed as a party on December 3, 2013.

Technical Analysis Technical analysis is the art of identifying patterns in the price movement of any security, such as forex, using historical trading data. Identifying these key patterns can help us understand where to buy and sell at given times. Technical analysis is a tool heavily used by many short to medium term traders, especially when there is little development in the market. Most market commentary and analyst picks use technical analysis incorporated with fundamental analysis. Why Is It Used? Technical analysis is used by nearly all traders at different scales and intensities. As a result, most technical movements are self-fulfilling as the market reacts according to the patterns. Fundamental analysis is the study of the intrinsic value of an investment. In forex, it entails looking at the economic conditions that affect the valuation of a nation's currency. The 4 major reports you can look at are: • Gross Domestic Product • Retail Sales • Industrial Production Index • Consumer Price Index The Two Basic Chart Movements To start with the basics, there are two types of chart movements in the markets. These are called Bull and Bear markets. Typical Bull Market Typical Bear Market The main feature of a bullish market is an upward moving market trend. Just like a bull, the market charges upwards. The main feature of a bearish market is the downward trending slope of the market. Most people refer to it as the bear swiping its paws down on the market, killing its upward momentum.
