Lanesboro, Minnesota: An Epicenter of Hot Business Trends
















Lanesboro, Minnesota


Minneapolis, MN (PRWEB) June 04, 2015

The bucolic small town of Lanesboro in Southeastern Minnesota – population 754 – is welcoming ten new small business ventures into its thriving downtown and surrounding areas. In response, the Lanesboro Area Chamber of Commerce will be holding a celebration of small town business pride featuring ribbon cuttings, walkthroughs, and grand openings on Tuesday, June 9th, starting at 11am.

When driving in from Highway 8, you’d swear you were entering an idyllic European Village. Nestled among the picturesque bluffs, Lanesboro, is located in the driftless region. Minnesota’s Root River gently flows through the town, and one of the other gems that makes the town sparkle is is the DNR groomed Root River State Bike Trail. Also noted as a creative hub, the city is home to Lanesboro Arts, one of the 2014 recipients of the Bush Prize for Community Innovation, as well as the nationally recognized Commonweal Theatre.

Since the late 1990s, Lanesboro has made a name for itself as a premiere destination in the American Midwest and beyond with historic lodging, a plethora of quaint bed and breakfasts, cozy eateries, and unique shopping destinations. On hand for the festivities on June 9th will be the Lanesboro’s Mayor, City Administrator, members of the EDA and President of the Area Chamber of Commerce, among others.

“The entire town is buzzing with excitement,” said Chamber Director of Tourism Eric Leitzen. “The new businesses are adding to an already bustling main street scene, and several other businesses are under construction and set to open within the year. Lanesboro shows what small town America can truly be with a focused goal, great citizens and a dedicated, hardworking spirit.”

The hot business trends of up-cycling and recycling really seem to have taken hold in Lanesboro. Three new antique/resale shops are opening along with a motorcycle accessories shop and inn, a liquor store, craft shops, a diner, a two-story pub and a downtown outpost for the Eagle Bluff Envionmental Learning Center.

The Lanesboro Economic Development Association Co-Chairs Catherine Glynn and Bill Swanson are “thrilled with the innovative and entrepreneurial energy flooding the town.” They say, “The EDA plans to leverage this insurgence of new businesses to draw more young families, artisans and creative entrepreneurs.”

The Area Chamber of Commerce, who will be hosting the event, serves the surrounding Bluff Country area as an organizational and promotional non-profit body for the improvement and encouragement of small town business.

Construction Machinery Industry In China, 2014-2018: Worldwide Industry Share, Investment Trends, Growth, Size, Strategy and Forecast Research Report












(PRWEB) April 19, 2014

In 2013, China’s GDP increased by 7.7% YOY. According to IMF, the growth rate of global economy was merely 3%. China remains one of the fastest growing countries in terms of GDP and resident income in recent years. The GDP per capita was approximately USD 6,600 in 2013, far behind that of developed countries. Therefore, Chinese economy shows great potential for growth.

Browse full report with TOC: http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/research-report-on-construction-machinery-industry-in-china-2014-2018.

In 2013, the investment in fixed assets was CNY 44.7074 trillion in China, up by 19.3% YOY. The rapid growth stimulates demand for construction machinery. Consequently, as the global production and demand transfer, China becomes an important market and the manufacturing center of construction machinery with most of the market seized by the foreign-funded enterprises.

In 2013, the sales revenue of construction machinery industry surpassed CNY 600 billion in China, up by over 10% YOY.

The sales revenue of top 50 enterprises accounted for over 80% of the industry while that of XCMG exceeded CNY 100 billion. The annual sales revenue of over 10 manufacturers of construction machinery, including foreign-funded enterprises, surpassed CNY 10 billion.

Investment and M&A remained as the main trend of the industry due to high expectation of market demand. It is noteworthy that Chinese manufacturers of construction machinery are expanding business overseas. Certain Chinese manufacturers with strong competitiveness expand export and operate internationally through M&A and joint ventures. For instance, Weichai Power Co., Ltd., a subsidiary of Shandong Heavy Industry Group, purchased shares of KION Group. Liugong Machinery (Poland) sp. z o. o. signed Conditional Acquisition Contract with the asset custody side of ZZN Transmission Plant in Stalowa Wola, Poland. SANY GROUP purchased the remaining 10% shares of Putzmeister and became its 100% shareholder.

Chinese government is determined to maintain economic growth through structure adjustment and reform instead of investment in fixed assets under the pressure of economy slowdown. The measures are proved to be effective in terms of urbanization. It once referred to an influx of rural migrants to cities that resulted in urban traffic congestion and increasing crime rate. However, current urbanization policies attempt to absorb surplus rural labors through synchronized development of small towns and medium to large cities. The number of small towns is approximately 20,000 in China. It is estimated that new urbanization infrastructure will stimulate demand of CNY 0.4-0.5 million for investment in fixed assets in the next 10 years. Decline of the governmental investment will make room for non-state-owned capital. The annual growth rate of investment in fixed assets like transportation, infrastructure and real estate is expected to surpass 15% in the coming years.

In 2014-2018, demand for construction machinery is estimated to increase outstandingly and create many opportunities for manufacturers at home and abroad.

HPV Therapeutic Vaccines Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 – 2019

http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/hpv-therapeutic-vaccines-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019

Human Papillomaviruses (HPV) are members of papillomaviridae family a group of more than 150 related viruses. These are specifically known as papillomaviruses because of some of its types give rise to a wart or papilloma which are benign growths. Some of them are also associated with certain cancers and known as carcinogenic HPVs. More than 40 types of HPV viruses are easily transferred from one person to another by sexual contact anal and oral. Ithas estimated worldwide prevalence of HPV induced cancer in approximately 12-13%. Cervical cancer is the second largest cause of cancer deaths in women worldwide.According to World Health Organization it has been estimated that globally 510,000 cases per year and about 288,000 deaths occur due to cervical cancer.

Currently, two U.S. FDA approved vaccines are commercially available namely Gardasil (Merck & Co., Inc.) and Cervarix (GlaxoSmithKline Pharmaceuticals Ltd.) for the treatment of HPV infections.The HPV therapeutic vaccines market is at a nascent stage and it would take approximately couple of decades to implement mass vaccination for preventingcervical cancer incidences. Gardasil is a quadrivalent vaccine and targets four HPV types (6, 11, 16 and 18) while Cervarix is bivalent vaccine and targets on two HPV types (16 and 18). It has been observed that neither of these HPV vaccines have been proven to provide complete protection against tenacious infections with other types of HPVs.

DNA Diagnostics Market – Global Industry Analysis, Size, Share, Growth, Trends And Forecast, 2013 – 2019

http://www.marketresearchreports.biz/analysis-details/dna-diagnostics-market-global-industry-analysis-size-share-growth-trends-and-forecast-2013-2019

The completion of human genome project resulted in discovery of several human disease causing genes. This discovery has further led to the evolution of DNA diagnostic platforms and resulted in the transformation of DNA diagnostics platforms from a research based activity into a major professional or commercial activity. The transformation is majorly attributed to the rapid pace of technological advances followed by development of robust methodologies such as polymerase chain reaction (PCR), microarrays, novel gene sequencing and others. DNA based diagnostic methods facilitate the mutation detection, identification of disease causing genes, diagnosis of monogenic disorders, etc. In addition, these platforms are employed in prenatal diagnosis to determine mutations and genetic disorders and also is used in the preimplantation diagnosis. Preimplantation diagnosis involves the detection of mutation in the 8 cell stage embryo before implantation and is possible due to development of combined technologies such as in vitro fertilization (IVF), PCR and Fluorescent In Situ Hybridization (FISH). All these aforementioned factors prove that DNA diagnostics market holds immense growth potential in the near future.

DNA diagnostics market can be segmented based on the technology, application and geography. PCR, microarrays, lab-on-chip or biochips and in situ hybridization technologies are some of the major DNA technologies employed in several genetic tests. Biomarkers play a very important role in the identification of disease-causing genes and oncology is one of the major areas benefitted by biomarkers. DNA microarrays are used to identify the patients at high risk of acquiring disease, determine the effectiveness of the treatment and patient’s response to the treatment. Pre/post-natal genetic testing, oncology, infectious disease testing, forensics and pharmacogenomics are some of the applications of the DNA diagnostics market. Oncology is one of the major application areas of the DNA diagnostics due to increasing demand for the clinical applications of DNA-based tests. Also, the market can be analyzed with respect to four major geographies namely North America, Europe, Asia-Pacific and Rest of the World (RoW).

Tips On Trips Spots The Hot Trends In Summer Programs For Teens











Tips On Trips And Camps


Baltimore, Maryland (PRWEB) February 28, 2014

“Summer programming for teens has become a very competitive industry. Parents are looking for ways to occupy their younger teens that cannot yet hold jobs. And, parents of older teens are looking for resume builders and experiences from which their teens can craft college essays,” says Eve Eifler, co-owner of Tips on Trips and Camps, Inc.

Co-owner Carey Rivers adds, “The trends that seem to be driving the summer program industry right now are demands for shorter programs to accommodate the busy teen schedule and demands for more bang for the buck.”

Eifler agrees, “While programs abroad used to be strictly delineated between language, community service, or adventure travel; today, teens can choose one program in which they can do all three. And, teens can participate in two distinctly different trips in one summer under the same organization. To allow for this, these organizations provide escorted flights from one country to the next destination.”

Rivers highlights social entrepreneurship as another hot trend in teen summer camp programming. She says, “these programs teach teens business-based solutions to social problems like poverty and ecology. Students learn environmental stewardship and leadership skills at top American universities or in foreign settings such as South Africa or Switzerland.

Experiences abroad for teenagers have been a popular thing for years. A high school student can explore a foreign culture by studying on a college campus or staying with a host family. A new type of experience, however, is one in which a student has already developed a passion at home and wants to experience that skill in a foreign setting. Eifler agrees, “A student can paint in a small community in Ireland or develop their writing in Prague. They can explore public health issues and learn preventive medicine in Nicaragua or do a photography workshop in London.”

Food and sustainable living is certainly a new area of interest to many teens and parents alike and the industry has responded with a multitude of farm to table programs, both domestically and abroad. Rivers adds, “Kids have become disconnected from the land and from where their food is derived. With some trips to Italy, teens can learn organic farming and culinary skills and form an appreciation for the entire process of food production and eating. In Nicaragua, they can practice their Spanish and work on healthy gardening with native people.”

Specialty camps have existed for a while now, but it was not until very recently that those specialties were linked to religious philosophy. Jewish specialty programs have sprung up in outdoor adventure, science, business and sports. Eifler says, “The idea of the traditional Jewish co-ed camp will always remain; but, for the teen who missed that experience or is just not a traditional camper, he can pursue an interest in science or business alongside a Jewish cohort and, simultaneously, understand things like how Jewish ethics inform business decisions.”

Every teen program director wants to go where “no man has ever been,” but has to balance that with parents’ concerns over safety. Rivers agrees, “Teen tour operators have responded with a wealth of more stringent security protocols to ensure that travel is safe for kids no matter how far or distinct. It is not uncommon to find teen programs that travel to Uganda or Vietnam. Eastern Europe has also become a major teen destination to countries like Croatia and the Czech Republic.”

Tips on Trips consultants have been advising parents for the last 43 years. They have U.S. regional offices in Maryland, Washington, D.C., New York, Vermont, Massachusetts, Pennsylvania, North Carolina, Florida, Texas, Missouri, Illinois, California, and abroad in France and Barcelona. Parents can receive expert advice by telephone, email or in person.

International Association of Outsourcing Professionals Predicts Top Outsourcing Trends for 2008












Poughkeepsie, NY (PRWEB) December 29, 2007

Socially responsible outsourcing, global competition for talented employees and a power shift among outsourcing players will be among the key trends in the coming year, predicts the International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP).

Among the top five outsourcing developments to watch for in 2008 forecasted by IAOP Chairman Michael Corbett and Managing Director of Thought Leadership Jagdish Dalal are:

1) Socially Responsible Outsourcing

Outsourcing increasingly will be recognized for the value it brings to communities around the globe and companies engaged in outsourcing will be acknowledged for being good corporate citizens.

“With the shaky U.S. economy, presidential elections looming and a heightened awareness of how everyone’s actions impact the environment, outsourcing is poised to go politically correct in 2008,” Corbett said.

Companies providing, using and advising on outsourcing will become known for adhering to and advancing the highest ethical standards, contributing to communities, bettering the environment, and expanding career opportunities and training for employees, he predicts.

IAOP recognizes outsourcing leaders for their contributions to business and society through its “ Outsourcing Hall of Fame” award program that has inducted senior executives from such leading companies as Capgemini, Procter & Gamble, Accenture and Applied Materials.

2) Outsourcing Professionals Wanted

Outsourcing professionals will be sought after, valued and compensated for their important role in business. Today, more than 150,000 professional are involved in the $ 6 trillion global outsourcing industry and these numbers and the professionalism of the industry is only expected to continue to grow.

“The C-level suite is recognizing the importance of outsourcing,” Dalal said. “More and more outsourcing professionals will sit at the executive table with senior executives and define the very shape of business.”

IAOP continues to see strong interest in its outsourcing certification program. Teams of professionals and individuals from companies around the globe are receiving the industry’s first and sole professional certification – the Certified Outsourcing Professional (COP).

3) Global Talent Wars

Attracting, developing and retaining talented employees will become a major challenge for both outsourcing service providers and businesses building their internal capabilities as outsourcing increases in developing countries, especially India.

“The global talent wars will further widen the economic gap between the cost of talent management and expected cost baseline,” Dalal said in looking ahead.

4) Power Shifts from Dominant Players

Outsourcing industry leadership will move from a small group of U.S.-based service companies who have dominated the industry since its inception, including IBM, EDS, CSC and Accenture, to include foreign companies that are growing, such as TCS, Infosys and Wipro.

“The landscape is shifting, with large U.S. companies becoming major ‘offshore’ players while offshore players are establishing U.S. footholds through acquisitions and by establishing their own facilities,” Corbett said.

IAOP is seeing this trend in its annual ranking of the world’s best outsourcing service providers, Global Outsourcing 100. For the past two years IBM has remained at the top of the list but increasingly, Indian-based companies are rising in the top 10 ranks.

5) Globalization: A Race to the Finish Line

While businesses race to build their global talent portfolio, the best will all have their basics in place by the end of 2008. What was until just recently a new strategy for companies to offer competitive differentiation is now required of all. Any company not already well into the outsourcing game is at serious risk in today’s economy.

“Although the ink may be barely dry on the first revision of Tom Friedman’s book, The World is Flat, the globalization end-game is already in sight,” Corbett said.

About IAOP

The International Association of Outsourcing Professionals (IAOP) is the global, standard-setting organization and advocate for the outsourcing profession. With 40,000 customer, advisor and provider members world-wide, IAOP helps companies increase their outsourcing success rate, improve their outsourcing ROI, and expand the opportunities for outsourcing across their businesses. http://www.outsourcingprofessional.org.
