“The new era of value-based care and population health management is requiring cardiologists to collaborate and share information more readily with other care team members across various care settings,” said Jeroen Tas, CEO, Healthcare Informatics Solutions and Services, Philips. “IntelliSpace Cardiovascular marks the next generation of cardiology imaging and innovation, serving as a layer of interoperability that allows all care team members to access data and sophisticated clinical applications within one workspace.”

Improving interoperability to enhance collaboration
By centralizing patient data from different areas of the hospital, IntelliSpace Cardiovascular helps facilitate a streamlined workflow and improve patient care. The new way information is displayed allows all care team members to view the patient’s history spanning diagnosis, treatment and therapy, fostering collaboration and potentially eliminating unnecessary and repetitive tests.

IntelliSpace Cardiovascular offers a suite of interoperable clinical modules designed to help improve workflow across the entire cardiovascular service line from virtually anywhere. Built-in echocardiography reporting features give cardiologists the ability to identify and eliminate inaccuracies within reports.

— 4K TV ownership in the US will reach 10% by 2016 up from just 1% in 2014.

BOSTON, March 4, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — The USA will emerge as the leading market for 4K or Ultra HD TVs in terms of household penetration by 2020 followed by the leading Western European markets, Australia, South Korea and China. According to Strategy Analytics’ Connected Home Devices (CHD) report “Ultra High Definition TV Displays: Global Market Forecast,” demand for UHD TVs is soaring worldwide as entry level price points drop well below $1000, model availability expands and consumers seek out the next best technology as they upgrade their ageing flat panel TVs.

Other key findings from the report include:

  • Shipments of 4K/Ultra HD TVs grew 633% in 2014 to reach 12.1 million units with Asia Pacific accounting for 75% followed by North America (12%) and Western Europe (11%).
  • Global shipments of Ultra HD TVs will more than double in 2015 to 27.5 million units and more than 100 million will be shipping annually by 2018.
  • 60% of all Ultra HD TVs shipped globally in 2014 were 50-inch or larger in size, while a quarter of all 50-inch and larger TVs that shipped were Ultra HD.
  • Sub 50-inch Ultra HD TVs will become more widely available in 2015 and the sub 50-inch category will account for the majority of Ultra HD TV shipments globally by the end of 2016.
  • Wide color gamut technology and high dynamic range support will be built into premium Ultra HD TV displays in 2015 creating a more discernable price tier structure in the market.

David Watkins, Service Director, Connected Home Devices, said, “Ultra HD will become the standard resolution for virtually all large screen TVs within 3 to 4 years’ time and we will see it penetrate further into smaller screen sizes as manufacturing efficiencies improve.” He added, “As we saw with the transition from SD to HD, it is the TV manufacturers who are leading the Ultra HD charge although significant steps are being made on the delivery infrastructure and content production parts of the value chain. As the inevitable price competition eats into the ability of the TV vendors to make any meaningful profit from selling Ultra HD TVs, many brands are adding support for wider color gamuts and high dynamic range in order to differentiate their models and charge a premium over ‘standard’ Ultra HD models.”

17th Annual L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards

5 Exceptional Women Honored for Their Ground-Breaking Discoveries in the Physical Sciences

PARIS, March 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — As the International Year of Light celebrates science and knowledge all over the world, the L’Oreal Foundation and UNESCO will present, on March 18th, the L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards to five outstanding women scientists and 15 grants to promising young researchers. Each of these women is a brilliant example of scientific excellence. They prove everyday that women can greatly contribute to scientific progress in a field still largely dominated by men.

Well into the 3rd millennium, much progress remains to be made to reach gender balance in science. Only 30% of the world researchers are women and many barriers and obstacles discourage women from entering or pursuing a career in science. Dedicated to both honoring distinguished women scientists and supporting promising young researchers, the L’Oreal-UNESCO program gives five annual Awards and accelerates the careers of 15 exceptional young women chosen among over 230 Fellowships awarded every year all over the world. Since 1998, the For Women in Science program has honored 2,250 greatly talented women in over 110 countries.

The 17th edition of the L’Oreal-UNESCO Awards 

This year’s L’OrealUNESCO For women in Science Awards Ceremony will be held on the evening of March 18th at the Sorbonne in Paris. On the morning of the 18th, a press conference will be held at the Saint James Albany Hotel in Paris. The 5 Laureates will be announced and the 15 fellows will present their research projects in 3 minutes in a “stand-up” way. Laureates and fellows will then give one-on-one interviews.

A unique exhibition celebrating women in science 

Starting today, millions of passengers going through the terminals of the Charles de Gaulle and Orly airports will discover a unique exhibition of the 5 Laureates by world-renowned photographer Brigitte Lacombe.

By traveling the world to meet each of these women, Brigitte Lacombe has created a series of photographs that capture their inspiring spirit and passion. “Aeroports de Paris has been engaged in supporting women in science since 2005. Each year, we support this cause and offer exceptional visibility to increase public awareness,” said Benjamin Perret, Aeroports de Paris’ communications director.

Female scientists who are changing the world 

This year’s 5 Laureates of the L’Oreal-UNESCO For Women in Science Awards are being honored for their ground-breaking discoveries in the physical sciences. By studying the infinitely large to the infinitely small, they have pushed back the frontiers of knowledge to explain the most fundamental questions of the universe and contribute to solving some of today’s greatest challenges. Passionate in life as much as in their work, they are also committed to giving back to their communities and transmitting their love of science.

They were selected in the 5 regions of the world by an independent International Awards Jury made up of 12 prominent international scientists who were personally chosen by the President of the Jury and 1999 Nobel Prize winner, Prof. Ahmed Zewail.

AFRICA AND THE ARAB STATES: Prof. Rajaâ Cherkaoui El Moursli – High Energy Physics and Nuclear Physics 

Professor, Mohammed V- Agdal University, Rabat, MOROCCO  

Prof. Rajaa Cherkaoui El Moursli is being honored for her key contribution to one of the greatest discoveries in physics: proof of the existence of the Higgs Boson, the particle responsible for the creation of mass in the universe. Nicknamed “research activist”, she dedicates much of her time to raising the level of scientific research in her country and has been instrumental in improving Moroccan healthcare by creating the 1st master’s degree in medical physics.

ASIA / PACIFIC: Prof. Yi Xie – Inorganic Chemistry 

Professor, University of Science & Technology of China, Hefei, CHINA  

Prof. Yi Xie is being honored for her significant contributions to creating new nanomaterials with promising applications in the conversion of heat or sunlight into electricity.

EUROPE: Prof. Dame Carol Robinson – Physical Chemistry – Mass Spectrometry  

Professor, University of Oxford, UNITED KINGDOM 

Prof. Dame Carole Robinson is being honored for creating a revolutionary method for studying how proteins function, particularly membrane proteins, and establishing a whole new scientific field: gas phase structural biology. Her pioneering work could have a significant impact on medical research. A risk-taker, Prof. Robinson has always done things her way: she left school at 16, passed her PhD at a school for adult learners and took eight years off to raise her children.

LATIN AMERICA: Prof. Thaisa Storchi Bergmann – Physics and Astronomy  

Professor, Federal University of Rio Grande Do Sul, Porto Alegre Brasil  

Prof. Thaisa Storchi Bergmann is being honored for her work leading to the understanding of massive black holes, one of the most enigmatic and complex phenomena of the universe: she was the first researcher to discover that matter could escape from black holes. Passionate and determined, she is convinced that education for all is the key to a better world and, through her work, she hopes to contribute to promoting science as a captivating and fun career path.

NORTH AMERICA: Prof. Molly S. Shoichet – Polymer Chemistry 

Professor of chemical engineering and applied chemistry, chemistry and biomaterials & biomedical engineering, University of Toronto, Canada 

Prof. Molly S. Shoichet is being honored for the development of new materials to regenerate damaged nerve tissue and for a new method that can deliver drugs directly to the spinal cord and brain. Her work is putting chemistry at the service of medicine in spectacular new ways. A people person, she also participates in special athletic events for people with spinal cord injuries, is actively involved in human rights issues and has contributed to launching a social media campaign designed to “connect today’s research with tomorrow’s reality.”


The L’Oreal Foundation is committed to two main causes, that of Women in Science and Beauty for a Better Life. Based on values of excellence, generosity and creativity, science is at the core of the Foundation’s commitments, most particularly its commitment to supporting women researchers through its For Women in Science program, a worldwide initiative in partnership with UNESCO. As well, rooted in the belief that beauty care is an essential need met by passionate professionals skilled in creating human relationships, the Foundation has launched several programs anchored by a vision of beauty as a path toward a fairer and more generous society. The Foundation is committed to assisting the economically disadvantaged and those suffering from physical and mental ailments in regaining their sense of self-esteem through beauty care and training in beauty care professions.


Since its creation in 1945, UNESCO has pursued its mission of promoting science at the service of sustainable development and peace. It stresses policies and the reinforcement of capacities in science, technology and innovation, science education, sustainable management of freshwater, ocean and terrestrial resources, the protection of biodiversity and addressing the issue of climate change. The Organization also has an overarching objective to eliminate all forms of discrimination and promote equality between men and women, especially in scientific research.

Featured alongside an elite list of outstanding aesthetic products, NewBeauty notes that UltraShape was chosen by a panel of thousands of readers, editors and beauty industry experts for its ability to deliver real, noticeable and highly customizable results “without surgery or hours spent in the gym.”

“As the number of satisfied UltraShape users continues to grow, we are honored to earn recognition from NewBeauty Magazine, further validating our leading position in the body shaping space,” said Dr. Shimon Eckhouse, Chairman of the Board of Directors for Syneron. “UltraShape represents the next generation in body-shaping with proven clinical outcomes and a superior safety profile, underscoring Syneron’s ongoing commitment to advancing treatment outcomes through technological innovation.”

“What sets UltraShape apart from other body shaping solutions is its fast outcomes with results visible in often as little as 2 weeks post first treatment,” says Amit Meridor, Chief Executive Officer of Syneron. “With UltraShape’s customizable treatments, for the very first time physicians are able to truly sculpt instead of bulk heat or freeze fat. UltraShape is a painless solution for those who cannot get rid of stubborn fat resistant to diet and exercise.”

The UltraShape System is the first and only non-invasive body shaping treatment that uses pulsed focused ultrasound energy to precisely target subcutaneous fat, while keeping the surrounding tissue, vasculature, nerves and muscles intact. Unlike other body shaping technologies that use heat or freezing techniques, UltraShape uses a pure mechanical effect to destroy fat cells without inducing thermal damage. This unique feature of UltraShape technology results in a safe and comfortable treatment experience with no visible signs of treatment and no downtime.

The newest fat-blasting treatment on the block, UltraShape, with over 300,000 procedures performed worldwide, was cleared by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) 510(k) for non-invasive reduction of abdominal circumference via fat cell destruction in April of last year.
