Miss Cougar International Speaks Out Against CougarLife Billboard

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy.

San Rafael, CA (May 31, 2013) — Contact: Tom Andrews, 415-479-3800

Amy Luna Manderino, the reigning Miss Cougar International, is calling out the dating site Cougarlifecom, for its recent advertising ploy. The Los Angeles billboard depicts a woman breastfeeding with a thought bubble balloon from the (presumably male) baby’s head saying “Jealous?” in order to promote their dating website for older women and younger men.

Ms. Manderino, a popular educational speaker on the aging revolution and s*x and gender evolution, regularly speaks about dating sites that use s*xually graphic images of older women to sell their product. “A few individuals have managed to brand the cougar archetype and, as a result, they have p*rnified, objectified and trivialized an entire generation of confident, empowered women who are exercising new choices and freedoms as society evolves.”

In her blog, Age and the S*x Evolution, Ms. Manderino explains how Cougarlife and its parent, Avid Life Media, are perpetuating a harmful, regressive image of mature single women. “Women who are s*xually knowledgable, comfortable and open lead happy, healthy lives as the s*xual equals of their partners. Characterizing confident women as ‘hunters’ reinforces the obsolete and dangerous idea that human s*xuality requires a ‘predator’ and a ‘prey’ which creates a climate that contributes to s*xual assault as well as unsatisfying consensual s*x.” The full blog is at http://www.amyluna.com/blog.

Manderino is a performing artist, academic scholar, public speaker and lifelong advocate for gender equality and healthy s*xuality. She competed to win Miss Cougar International in order to acknowledge the exciting cultural shifts occurring for women and men and to debunk the obsolete “Mrs. Robinson” stereotype. She is also a member of Mensa (high IQ society), Omicron Delta Kappa (national leadership honor society) and the Alumnae Leadership Council of the Public Leadership Education Network for women. Amy Luna Manderino is available to the news media for interviews by calling 510-666-7626 or by emailing misscougarinternational@gmail.com.

Market Rates Insight Releases Findings from its New Consumer Study: Growth and Revenue Potential from Emerging Financial Services

Market Rates Insight

New fee optimization study reveals perceived value of new financial services and how to optimize fees with service bundles to generate new revenue.

SAN ANSELMO, Calif. (May 30, 2013) — Market Rates Insight, Inc., a leader in financial services intelligence for deposits, personal loans, mortgages, and fees, has completed the analysis phase of its latest consumer research and fee optimization study, “Growth and Revenue Potential for Emerging Financial Services.” The study examines 13 emerging financial services and assesses consumer attitudes about the importance and value of each service, segmented by banks and credit unions as well as demographic groups. The study findings will be reviewed in a webinar to be hosted by Market Rates Insight on June 18.

This study is the only one of its kind to measure consumer attitudes about banking fees and services and was conducted nationwide to help banks and credit unions better understand consumers and identify new revenue sources from fee-based services and service bundles. Banks and credit unions are facing new challenges from non-banking competitors offering banking services, and they need to identify new ways to attract and keep customers. This study provides empirical data on the importance and value of emerging services to help financial institutions create service offerings that attract and retain customers while building revenue.

Some of the preliminary findings reveal that identity theft alerts (70.8%), credit score reporting (71.4%), payment protection services (64.6%), and same-day bill pay (58.7%) currently ranked with the highest consumer demand. Other services such as eldercare services, prepaid reloadable cards, and location-based coupons showed the greatest growth potential with consumers.

This study also reveals for the first time how consumers value certain combinations of services. Consumers typically value service bundles more than individual services, and will pay a premium for bundled services. The study reveals which combination of services command higher fees because of increased consumer demand.

“For the foreseeable future deposit rates will remain flat and loan demand will stay soft, so financial institutions will have to rely in fee revenues for income growth. But to convert services from ‘free to fee,’ banks and credit unions will have to identify new services that consumers want and are willing to pay for. Our new study shows banks and credit unions how to use service fees to expand profits and penetration with both existing and new customers.”

The “Growth and Revenue Potential lf Emerging Financial Services” study is being offered in both an Essential and Premium package. The Essential package includes copies of the complete 150-page study and a competitive survey of 10 financial institutions and their adoption of the 13 emerging financial services. The Premium package includes the survey and competitive data, as well as an optimization analysis of service bundles, an online optimization consultation, copies of the Emerging Trend Spotlight quarterly update, and access to trend analysis and service integration online seminars.

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C. Reports IFRS Financial Results for the First Quarter of 2013

URALCHEM

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C., a Cypriot holding company of the URALCHEM Group, one of the largest producers of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers in Russia, announced its unaudited IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

Moscow, Russia (May 29, 2013)

– Revenue increased to US $683 million, compared to US $673 million in Q1 2012.
– Operating profit increased to US $220 million, compared with US $178 million in Q1 2012.
– Adjusted EBITDA grew to US $250 million, compared to US $207 million in Q1 2012.
– Net profit amounted to US $161 million, compared with US $354 million in Q1 2012*.

URALCHEM HOLDING P.L.C. (hereinafter URALCHEM Holding or the Company), a Cypriot holding company of the URALCHEM Group (hereinafter the Group), one of the largest producers of nitrogen and phosphate fertilizers in Russia, announced its unaudited IFRS financial results for the first quarter of 2013.

Dmitry Konyaev, CEO of URALCHEM, OJSC (the Russian holding company of the Group), commented on the results, “In the first quarter of this year, URALCHEM increased its revenues and the adjusted EBITDA grew substantially. This shows how effectively the Company is working. URALCHEM is still focusing on production of high-margin products demanded by the market. The first three months of 2013 showed the sort of results which we had anticipated. This is a positive testament to our strategy of strengthening our position in the nitrogen segment.”

Financial Results

Revenue for the first quarter of 2013 grew to US $683 million, compared to US $673 million in the first quarter of last year. Operating profit amounted to US $220 million, or 32% of the revenue, compared with the operating profit of US $178 million, or 26% of the revenue, in the first quarter of 2012. Net profit for the first quarter of 2013 amounted to US $161 million, compared to US $354 million in the first quarter of 2012.

During the first quarter of 2013, adjusted EBITDA reached US $250 million, compared to US $207 million the year before, a rise of 19%. The adjusted EBITDA margin for the first quarter of 2013 comprised 37% of revenue compared with 31% of revenue for the first quarter of 2012.

Revenue, EBITDA margin and adjusted EBITDA increased during the first quarter of 2013 as compared to the same period in 2012. The difference in the net profit is due to revaluation of the Company’s share in Minudobrenia, Perm carried out in 2012 and foreign exchange differences that showed opposite dynamics in 2013.

Markets

Ammonia
During the quarter, the price of ammonia was slowly declining. The main factor determining the price dynamics was the lack of demand in both the agricultural and the industrial segments. Reduced production of phosphate fertilizers in North Africa and India resulted in lower demand for ammonia in these regions. US demand for ammonia for direct application was satisfied by supplies from Trinidad and from domestic market. The growth of the industrial segment in East Asia appeared to be insufficient to cover spot volumes and the demand was met by contract supplies. Ammonia production in Egypt decreased due to the limitations of gas supplies for nitrogen production, but at the same time, capacities utilization in Trinidad increased to 90%.

Urea
At the beginning of the quarter prices for urea increased rapidly. Quotes for prilled urea in the Black Sea ports showed growth from $375/t FOB in early January to $445/t FOB in mid-February. In the Baltic, the corresponding figures were at $360/t FOB and $430/t FOB. The most significant factor that determined the dynamics of prices at the beginning of the first quarter was the shift of the market balance towards demand.

On the one hand, the early part of the year is traditionally a period of high demand from Europe and the USA, and European importers had low stocks at the start of the purchasing season. On the other hand, restrictions on the supply of gas to nitrogen production facilities in Egypt at the beginning of the year led to a substantial reduction in export supply.

Shortages of supply of Egyptian urea increased the interest of European buyers in products from other countries, including the supply of prilled urea from the CIS. However, from mid-February, there was a reduction in prices, which continued until the end of the quarter. In the ports of CIS, price reduction was associated with the sale of long positions by traders. A decline in prices for ammonium nitrate in Europe produced additional pressure on the price of urea.

Prices continued to decline in March due to lower demand in the US and Europe, caused by the delay in fertilizer application due to adverse weather conditions. Latin American importers, the biggest buyers of Russian urea, switched to purchasing for current needs, focusing on the dynamics of prices. Toward the end of March, supply increased in the Ukrainian ports in connection with the completion of the season in that area.

Ammonium nitrate
Quotes for ammonium nitrate generally followed the trends in the price of urea. During January and February there was a steady growth in the quotations for the product at the ports of the CIS because of the shortage of the product available for export, due to supplies being allocated for domestic use. In mid-March the trend changed markedly due to lower domestic demand.

Phosphate fertilizers
Until mid-February, global decline in prices continued due to the lack of current demand. In February, major suppliers decreased production, which made it possible to stabilize prices. Then, due to increased demand in Latin America, prices started to restore. By the end of March, indicators of export prices in Tampa rose to $515/t FOB against the lowest prices of $465/t – $475/t FOB. Still, Latin America remained the single largest source of demand. Indian buyers refrained from transactions; closed tenders were held, mostly to test price expectations.

Production and sales

In the first quarter of 2013 the fertilizer market was stable and the Group’s products enjoyed strong demand. Volume of production by the Group’s enterprises remained at the level of the first quarter of last year. A significant portion of production output was sold in April 2013 due to adverse weather conditions and late start of the sowing season.

Financial Situation

Cash generated from operating activities in the first quarter of 2013 amounted to US $168 million, compared to US $174 million in the first quarter of 2012.

As at 31 March 2013, the Company’s net debt amounted to US $801 million. The weighted average interest rate of the loan portfolio in the first quarter of 2013 equalled 4.6% annually compared to 5.8% annually during the same period last year.

For Futures Magazine, Edgar Perez’s The Speed Traders An Enlightening Read on High-Frequency Trading

Edgar Perez Presenting at Hong Kong Securities Institute

Edgar Perez, Author, The Speed Traders: An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World, Published by in English by McGraw-Hill Inc. (2011), Mandarin by China Financial Publishing House (2012), and Bahasa Indonesia by Gramedia (2012) and Course Director, The Speed Traders Workshop 2012 (Hong Kong, Sao Paulo, Seoul, Kuala Lumpur, Warsaw, Kiev, Beijing and Shanghai).

New York City, NY, USA (May 28, 2013) — An enlightening read is how John Siewers III, a commodity broker for more than 20 years with 15 years experience on the Chicago trading floors, summarizes Edgar Perez’s book, The Speed Traders for Futures Magazine. “When a successful money making machine enters the picture, the expansion from the few to the many will occur naturally. The book is very clear on the evolutionary line. Perez has cornered a few of the success stories and had the luck/gumption to interrogate (er, interview) the few who would sit for it. It’s seems to be a cross technique he follows, while not exactly exposing the traders, and not exactly a promotional piece. I am sure their publicist, if they have one, couldn’t have been happier.”

“The fact that active players in this high-speed shuffle have different ideas of what constitutes high-frequency trading is logical when a new strategy evolves out of breathtakingly fast technological changes. High-frequency trading developers and entrepreneurs have chosen to remain, from inception through the recent flurry of regulation, litigation and bad press, in the shadows as any extremely profitable format of trading logically would. Many rumors and preconceived ideas have sprung up among the general public as well as the animosity of more traditional investors. As a natural result a continuation of secrecy remains, as you would expect in any number of highly successfully systems. An insider’s look is right. Perez does a fine job of laying out the argument FOR high frequency trading.”

The Speed Traders, An Insider’s Look at the New High-Frequency Trading Phenomenon That is Transforming the Investing World has been published in English by McGraw-Hill Inc.

Actyl Announces Recruitment Trips to Belize, Jamaica

Actyl Logo

Efforts will bring in temporary foreign workers before changes to law take effect.

EDMONTON, Alberta (May 24, 2013) — Actyl, a leading Canadian recruiting and human resources organization, will visit Belize and Jamaica in the coming days in an effort to bring temporary foreign workers (TFWs) to Canadian businesses.

The trip, which will take place May 27-31, comes just in time to bring these workers to Canada before key changes to the law take effect this summer. These changes will make it more difficult and costly for TFWs to enter the country starting in August.

“It is important for employers to act now before the law changes make it more difficult to find quality TFWs,” said Adrian Schulz, managing director of Actyl. “Later this summer, many of the advantages of hiring TFWs will be eliminated, making it more expensive for Canadian organizations businesses to rely on these very skilled and hard-working personnel. We’re encouraging all businesses that will require the use of TFWs in the coming year to apply now to avoid the hardships that will be associated with the new law.”

TFWs are frequently used to fill workforce gaps for businesses experiencing labor shortages. The changes in law will eliminate the accelerated Labor Market Opinion program that has offered businesses quick approval for the hiring of foreign workers. Elected officials intended these changes to force companies to find employees within the domestic workforce before turning to TFWs, even though the western provinces of Canada are currently experiencing a significant shortage in skilled workers.

Actyl will search for and interview candidates for jobs in Belize and Jamaica, two countries with thriving hospitality industries. These locales make for an ideal labor pool, as workers from these countries are often fluent in English and are highly qualified for work at Canadian businesses. Workers brought into the country before August will be exempt from the changes in the law.

“We have been successful in bringing in necessary temporary laborers to help Canadian businesses stay competitive in their respective markets,” said Schulz. “It’s important for companies to be aware of how these changes in the law will affect them. We look forward to our upcoming recruiting trip and encourage Canadian companies to look into the benefits of TFWs, if they haven’t already.”

Actyl specializes in recruiting skilled workers from competitive labor markets, which can help businesses fill gaps in their existing workforces. The firm actively recruits workers from Mexico, Jamaica, Belize, Ireland, the Philippines and other areas around the world.

SugarDaddyLogo

There is no greater gift a mother can offer to her child for International Children’s Day on June 1st than her unconditional love and a life free of financial hardship. According to the results of a recent SugarDaddyForMe.com survey, thousands of single mothers living across the U.S. strive to offer their children exactly that – a life they can enjoy to the fullest free from financial worries.

New York, NY, USA (May 24, 2013) — 77% of single moms responding to a new dating survey have taken up the Sugar Baby lifestyle for the financial benefits it can provide for themselves and their kids, according to a new online dating survey of 3,200 SugarDaddyForMe.com female members, aka Sugar Babies. Sugar Babies are single women who prefer dating prosperous men. A full 92% of the Sugar Daddies who answered another recent SugarDaddyForMe survey were willing to spend money on the children of their Sugar Baby.

The survey was conducted in honor of Children’s Day, which is celebrated internationally each year on June 1st.

The rapidly growing movement toward trying the Sugar Baby lifestyle has gained amazing momentum over the last 12 months as shown by the fact that 69% of the single mother respondents confirmed that they are living the Sugar Baby life for a year or less.

46% of single mother respondents have one child, while the rest are raising two or more children.

Particularly noteworthy is the fact that, besides the financial help that Sugar Daddy dating provides, this category of single mothers are also looking for emotional support:

– 57% of single mother Sugar Babies look forward to spending time with their Sugar Daddy as often as 3 to 5 times per week.
– An amazing 11% would be happy to see their Sugar Daddy 7 days a week.
– 65% would allow their Sugar Daddy to spend the night at least once a week.
– 7% of Sugar Babies would let their Sugar Daddy sleep over every night.

When it comes to mixing family life with the sugar one, 46% strongly believe that introducing their Sugar Daddy to their children is an option for when the sugar relationship is truly secure.

The fine line between family life and dating life is definitely blurring out just as the results depict an increasing number of single mothers who choose to be completely honest about their situation at home. Specifically, no less than 89% of the Sugar Babies currently dating say they are very open about their status as single mothers and have told their Sugar Daddies that they have children.

Results suggest that for these Sugar Baby single mothers, children and their welfare still come first within reasonable limits. Thus, 65% of them would keep on dating their Sugar Daddy even though their kids might express an obvious dislike toward him, but would make sure that they never meet.

Drawing on the results of the latest SugarDaddyForMe survey, the top 10 states with the largest numbers of single mothers who are looking to date a supportive Sugar Daddy are: 1-California, 2-Texas, 3-New York, 4-Florida, 5-Georgia, 6-Ohio, 7-Illinois, 8-North Carolina, 9-Pennsylvania, 10-Michigan.

Guangzhou, China (May 23, 2013) — Users of FlipBook Creator can now share their designs on any social media website, thanks to integrated tools which make doing so easy. The flipbook software, released on FlipPageMaker.com, enables e-book publishers to create a page flipping book by converting a PDF file and adding colors, backgrounds, sounds, and more.

The social media integration function of the software allows users to share their e-books with readers online. These can be sent via email or uploaded to a social network. Flipbooks can be easily read on sites like Facebook Twitter, and MySpace. While it is possible to upload the e-book online, it is just as easy to send a URL to others, where the book is located. Even people who do not use social media sites may still be enticed to look at the flipbook; hearing the name is often enough to encourage them since these social websites are so well known.

Within FlipBook Creator, users can create flipping Flash books and output them to readers on social networking websites. Social media integration is possible with a few simple steps:

1. The user launches page flip software, FlipBook Creator. A list of settings is located on the left-hand side of the interface.

3. On the “Social Share Button”, change the values setting to “Show”.
4. Click on the “Apply Change” option to save the setting. The page flipping e-book will now be configured for viewing on social media websites.

When users make social share available, there is a very good possibility the online e-book will receive more traffic. These few simple steps enable the book to be read on Facebook, Twitter, Google+, and other social media websites. Since so many people do their searching, information gathering, and purchasing online, and much of those on social media, having an e-book available on social media exposes it to a broad readership.

In addition a Google Analytics feature is built in. It is therefore possible to track reader behavior, how many visitors read the e-book, which pages they saw, how much time they spent reading it, what links they clicked on, and more.

Associated Press Should Remove ‘illegal wiretap’ from Stylebook

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC)

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) is encouraging the Associated Press to simply remove the term “illegal wiretap” from their stylebook to remedy their difficulties with Department of Justice phone surveillance of their employees.

Raleigh, NC, USA (May 14, 2013) — Contact: Americans for Legal Immigration PAC (ALIPAC) (866) 703-0864 Press@alipac.us

Americans for Legal Immigration PAC is encouraging the Associated Press to simply remove the term “illegal wiretap” from their stylebook to remedy their difficulties with Department of Justice phone surveillance of their employees.

The Associated Press was recently ridiculed nationally for ruling that the term “illegal immigrant” would be removed from their stylebook and likely disallowed in articles their wire service would carry just days before legislation granting Amnesty to millions of illegal immigrants was filed in the US Senate.

“The Associated Press is eager to embrace totalitarianism, protect and defend the Obama regime at any expense of the truth, engage in mass censorship and bias, and yet cry foul when the Obama administration power abuses affect them directly,” said William Gheen, Spokesman of ALIPAC. “Perhaps the AP should simply remove the term “illegal wiretap” to further accommodate the Obama administration in the same way they sought to wipe away public concerns about illegal immigration and Obama’s breaches of the US Constitution regarding our immigration laws.”

In response to the banning of the term “illegal immigrant,” the national press reported ALIPAC’s accusation that the Associated Press is engaging in a form of totalitarianism similar to what George Orwell described in his criticism of communism in the book 1984. In the book 1984, all citizens are subjected to a mass media supported dictator named “Big Brother” who serves as the figurehead of a one party centralized system kept in power through extreme surveillance of every citizen. Newspeak, the fictional language the citizens of 1984 are forced to use, is a reduction language where any terms deemed to be not politically correct have been removed from the latest version of the Newspeak book.

ALIPAC has criticized the Associated Press before for systematically failing to report on or acknowledge most of the death and destruction caused by illegal immigrants in America.

“The Associated Press engages in censorship and heavy bias to conceal the problems caused by the Political Correctness totalitarianism rampant in America today, including the deaths of thousands of Americans each year at the hands of illegal immigrants,” said William Gheen. “Perhaps their ‘magic eraser’ can help them thwart the Obama administration monster they have helped create and sustain!”
