Zebra Medical Vision Launches the Most Comprehensive Medical Imaging Research Platform Globally

SHEFAYIM, Israel, April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ —

Completes $8m seed round led by Khosla Ventures to accelerate the creation of imaging insights tools for HMOs and ACOs

Zebra Medical Vision launched a closed beta of its Medical Imaging Research platform and announced funding of $8 million led by Khosla Ventures, with participating parties DeepFork Capital and Salesforce (NYSE: CRM) CEO Marc Benioff. The company’s solution enables researchers to quickly develop imaging algorithms and insights based on large scale datasets and advanced processing power. Zebra’s commercialization pipeline will then expedite clinical application of imaging research products.

With a billion people joining the middle class by 2020, and an aging global population, the demand for medical imaging is rapidly increasing. Fast, accurate diagnosis is paramount, and is getting increasingly difficult to achieve with existing Radiology resources. Medical Imaging storage has grown tenfold since 2005 according to a Frost&Sullivan report and continues to grow with more advanced modalities. Therefore there is an acute need for accurate automated tools to enable high quality diagnostic insights at scale.

“Advances in machine learning and computer vision have made it possible to create diagnostic quality algorithms based on big data, that surpass current reading accuracy rates. Such algorithms will reduce false positives, identify false negatives, provide earlier diagnosis of cancer or other diseases and unlock incidental findings hidden in the vast amounts of imaging data that resides within archives of health providers,” said Elad Benjamin, Zebra Medical CEO and former General Manager of the Carestream Healthcare Information Solutions group.

“I have frequently commented that technology will reinvent healthcare as we know it,” said Vinod Khosla, founder of Khosla Ventures. “Zebra is combining the power of machine learning, computer vision and big data to do just that in medical imaging – creating a sandbox through which imaging innovation can occur and be delivered to patients. We are proud to back such a team and an ambitious endeavor and look forward to seeing the outcomes of the platform.”

Zebra’s platform offers a cloud-based, fully hosted research and development environment. This includes access to large datasets of structured, de-identified studies, storage, state-of-the-art GPU computing power and support for a multitude of research tools. The platform also enables research groups to collaborate and create joint tools.

“Zebra is the only platform today that offers such seamless access to both the tools and the needed datasets and research environment – and at such a large scale,” said Professor Gabriel Krestin, Professor of Radiology, Chair of Radiology at Erasmus University Medical Centre Rotterdam and past President of the European Society of Radiology. “This will finally enable providers to bring medical imaging into the fold of large scale clinical analysis and population management.”

The Zebra platform is initially being launched to select research groups. Researchers and machine learning practitioners can apply for an invite here. ACOs and HMOs are welcome to participate and learn how can better imaging insights improve care and reduce costs.

About Zebra Medical Vision Ltd  

Zebra Medical Vision has set out to create the world’s largest medical imaging insights platform. We believe that by providing machine-learning researchers the needed tools and datasets we can accelerate development of advanced decision support tools and diagnosis needed to serve the worlds population. Headquartered in Kibutz Shfayim Israel, the Company was founded in 2014 by Co-Founders Eyal Toledano, Eyal Gura and Elad Benjamin.

Happiness Begins Today With Launch Of Four Oceans

– Innovative direct sales company embodies the science of happiness that starts with learning, relationships, physical activity, experience and giving.

PLANO, Texas, April 7, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — FourOceans Global, LLC, announced today that the company is officially open.  Headquartered in Plano, Texas, Four Oceans is the leading lifestyle and professional development learning and experiential social selling company focused on a positive, meaningful life defined and attained through “sustained happiness.”

Four Oceans: The smartest place on Earth for you to be, happy.

Four Oceans: The smartest place on Earth for you to be, happy.

Logo – http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20150406/196721LOGO

Founded by industry veteran Robert Oblon who has put together a world-class executive team, Four Oceans looks to elevate global happiness beginning with its 2014 acquisition of The Success Training Network (formally called TSTN) plus many thought leaders in the field of happiness headlined by Shawn Achor, the world’s most recognized Positive Psychologist, Four Oceans is poised to revolutionize the direct selling and self-improvement industries.

“When I was introduced to the concept that the formula for happiness was backwards, I knew that we could elevate an entire industry with what Shawn Achor is proving in neuroscience and positive psychology,” said Oblon. “Four Oceans embodies the science of what happiness researchers have found ~ that sustained happiness is not realized through the attainment of money, things or accomplishments. Rather, sustained happiness comes from the relationships we have, a sense of belonging, physical activity, experience and learning, and giving. And bringing these elements to our members are the drivers behind Four Oceans.” After co-creating WorldVentures, one of the world’s largest direct selling companies in travel, Oblon has helped numerous companies with marketing, video production, web-development and technologies before deciding to launch Four Oceans as a hybrid company that can help everyone in direct selling, even while they’re in other direct selling companies.

“The business of Four Oceans is to deliver a compelling product, a superior customer experience, an enriching business process to recruit and retain Partners, and to be a hassle-free workplace of choice,” said James Menge, startup and travel industry veteran and Four Oceans CEO. With senior leadership roles at American Airlines, Virtuoso, Silverrail and SilverCar, Menge brings a robust business background that will take Four Oceans from launch through a long-term growth mode. Added Menge, “Industry relationships that include the Direct Selling Association (DSA), controls and governance that ensure company compliance, and overseeing business operations are objectives in maintaining stability for our Partners and customers.”

Jeff Cohen, another direct sales industry veteran, has been named the President of Four Oceans, and was recognized for his work and selected to ExecuRank’s TOP CMO #35 of 2012 while at MONAVIE.Most of us wish we could learn how to make ourselves better, smarter, successful people. The pressures of daily living, maintaining balance in our personal and professional lives, keeping up with friends and family, a demanding schedule, the work environment, insufficient family and personal time, limited rest and relaxation, and the changing environment all contribute to a life that is frustrating, unfulfilled, out of balance, and a disturbance of our natural happiness,” said Cohen. “Now we have a unique opportunity to gain personal and professional improvement with Four Oceans,” he added. Cohen’s vast experience in direct selling formally helped grow the $1Billion direct selling company MONAVIE and has spent a career creating consumer products and media and has been recognized with Reggie, BPME, BPA, Telly and Addy Awards.

“Our mission has always been focused on widening access to learning for everyone,” says Dave Neill, Four Oceans Chief Marketing Officer.  “We are fortunate to be able to bring the worlds leading thought and success trainers together into a single learning and social portal.  Our members have a real need for greater convenience, flexibility and access to learning opportunities, whether to get ahead at work or simply to keep their minds engaged.  With our proprietary self-development on-demand model, Four Oceans is the conduit, connecting people to new ideas with like-minded people from around the world with leading experts.”

Four Oceans plans to establish itself as a leader in lifestyle and professional development. The company will provide members an alternative to the variety of stores and online outlets that sell self-help books, tapes and CD’s through the company’s virtual Happiness curriculum membership.

HAPPINESS CURRICULUM
Four Oceans’ unique subscription-based membership offers curated curriculum from world leading experts that support the founding principles of sustained “Happiness” for all with core values for individuals, families, community at home and in business.

“Happiness is not the belief that we don’t need to change; it’s the realization that we can,” says Shawn Achor, Four Oceans featured trainer and author of bestseller ‘The Happiness Advantage’.

Customers who subscribe to the Four Oceans “Happiness” products & services gain access to learning and development content from leaders in the fields of positive psychology, happiness and personal development. Four Oceans’ products offer members a lesson and quiz-based learning program that teaches both the principles and practical application of what is learned. Achor says, “Knowledge is only part of the battle. Without action, knowledge is often meaningless”.

Beginning with the ’21 Days of Happiness’ course, offered free to subscribers, Four Oceans products offer personal development and self-improvement for anyone who wants to learn how to elevate their lives personally and professionally.

BUSINESS OPPORTUNITY
Four Oceans operates a social selling model that allows individuals to participate in an income generating opportunity.  Through their groundbreaking compensation model, the Four Oceans “Happiness” business opportunity allows individuals to join as Partners, benefiting from both their personal sales of memberships to customers, and from the efforts of others that they may sponsor into the program.

Four Oceans’ commitment to learning and personal development extends to their Partners by training on the key fundamentals specific to building a successful business. The Partner development program will teach powerful personal skills basics like how to approach new people, and how to invite them to work with you; professional skills including how to conduct effective one-on-one meetings; and taking their Four Oceans business to the next level.

INTERNATIONAL EXPANSION
In addition to today’s announcement of their US launch, Four Oceans also announced plans for pursuing an ambitious expansion plan across Asia and Europe. “We are committed to developing inspirational, life enhancing product which will continue to add value to our membership and create an amazing opportunity for our Partners,” said Beverley Warburton, Executive Vice President of Global Expansion. 

“We are excited with large numbers already embracing the Four Oceans concept in the US and Southeast Asia, and we will roll out the Four Oceans opportunity as quickly as we are able to deliver an uncompromised product and service to Partners and Customers around the globe.  We have the technology and the demand. Four Oceans is a unique possibility for Partners to build an elevating, sustainable business in an uncertain world,” added Warburton.

Four Oceans will continue pre-launch activities in Australia, New Zealand, Hong Kong and the Philippines, launching those markets in succession during 2015.

About Four Oceans
Four Oceans is a lifestyle brand that is disrupting the idea that hard work and sacrifice precedes happiness and success. The social selling company, based in Plano Texas, is at the forefront of the happiness movement. Starting with the ’21 Day of Happiness Course,’ Four Oceans learning and self-improvement programs are helping people around the world elevate their lives personally and professionally.

Four Oceans offers individuals two ways to get involved with the company.

THX Releases Rejuvenated Versions Of Iconic ‘THX Deep Note’ Sound With Global Launch Of New ‘Eclipse’ Trailer

– Originator Dr. James ‘Andy’ Moorer Breathes New Life into Legendary ‘THX Deep Note’ Audio Logo as latest THX ‘Eclipse’ Trailer Is Now Available to Audiences Worldwide

HOLLYWOOD, Calif., April 3, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — THX Ltd. announced the release of a rejuvenated ‘THX® Deep Note™’ composed by its creator, Dr. James ‘Andy’ Moorer, thirty years after its iconic original debut. The regenerated ‘THX Deep Note’ will be available to audiences in certified theaters worldwide beginning in April. The iconic sound will also launch the company’s highly-anticipated cinema trailer, THX ‘Eclipse’. Audiences can get a first glimpse at the THX ‘Eclipse’ trailer and remastered audio logo online at www.thx.com.  

Moviegoers are no stranger to the ‘THX Deep Note’, the familiar sound that introduces a feature film in THX Certified venues and on certified DVD and Blu-ray discs. It was first composed by Dr. Moorer in 1982 and debuted in the THX trailer Wings, screened before the 1983 premiere of Star Wars: Episode VI – Return of the Jedi. Since then, the ‘THX Deep Note’ has permeated the film industry to become one of the most iconic audio logos in the world.

“When I created the ‘THX Deep Note’ I wanted a big sound; I had no idea that sound would have such a big impact,” says Andy Moorer. “I’m astonished by how widely-recognized the ‘THX Deep Note’ has become.”

With the essence of the piece remaining true to the original, Dr. Moorer resynthesized the ‘THX Deep Note’ using modern technologies and mixing it in current cinema audio formats at the historic Skywalker Ranch. Due to technology limitations of the time, the original piece is a four-channel recording that has been adapted over the years for various trailers in up to a 5.1 mix. Without the technical hurdles he faced thirty years ago, Andy Moorer has developed variations of the ‘THX Deep Note’ in three different lengths (30 seconds, 45 seconds, and 60 seconds) all in stereo, 5.1, 7.1 and Atmos mixes. Faithful to the original character, the resulting audio is intensely more complex, taking the audience on an epic sensory journey unlike anything they’ve experienced before.

“It’s more than a logo, it is an essential part of the moviegoing experience,” explains Louis Cacciuttolo, THX Executive VP of International Business Development and Brand Strategy. “I am amazed at how Andy was able to preserve the spirit of the original ‘THX Deep Note’ in his rejuvenation; and the visual complement of the THX ‘Eclipse’ trailer will further enrich the experience. I have no doubt that the renewed Deep Note will continue to resonate with movie lovers for years to come.”

About THX Ltd.:
Founded by George Lucas 30 years ago and recognized by audiences around the globe, THX is synonymous with the certification of world-class cinemas and recording studios, premium audio systems for home and automotive applications along with high definition and 4K displays. THX develops and licenses new technologies and specifications for audio and video applications.

Richard Atkins, general manager, international, comments on the new partnership:

“Capita Healthcare Decisions has had a presence in Australasia for a number of years. However, the opportunity to now partner with Medibank across the region and into Asia on multi-national, multi-channel decision support services is really exciting. Bringing together our market leading software and clinical content together with Medibank’s longstanding track record in delivering a range of clinical services provides a catalyst for new health models of care for citizens in the region.”

Dermot Roche, Medibank general manager of telephone, online & population health said:

“The new partnership with Capita will add to Medibank’s reputation of providing innovative health solutions to both the members of Medibank and the broader Australian population who access health advice when they need it most.

Airwheel’s Electric Unicycles Tour the UK

CARDIFF, MANCHESTER and BRIGHTON, England, March 31, 2015 /PRNewswire/ — From March 21-22, Airwheel riders came to the streets of Cardiff, Manchester and Brighton promoting Airwheel‘s futuristic personal transporter on a two-day tour that caused a sensation in the UK.

http://www.airwheel.net/images/airwheel_img1.jpg

In each city, a team of Airwheel self-balancing unicycle riders headed out onto the streets, successfully catching the eye of pedestrians thanks to a beautifully concise exterior design that actually shares some resemblance to a skateboard.

“It really reminds me of the hover board in Back to the Future”, remarked one stunned local resident, touching on both the fact that Airwheel is such a futuristic device, and that the science and technology of transportation is headed in that direction.

Airwheel defines the concept of the commute of the future, with the UK tour serving to raise further awareness of this fun and eco-friendly adult’s unicycle. The team also distributed booklets and questionnaires to pedestrians who were interested in Airwheel’s brand, trying to introduce a new lifestyle to the public.

http://www.airwheel.net/images/airwheel_img2.jpg

Based on the latest gyro technology, Airwheel is a self-balancing electric unicycle. It is portable, cheap to run, fun to ride, environmentally friendly and can easily be carried onto the bus or subway. It’s also safe and easy to use; simply lean forwards to go forward, and back to slow down or go backwards. The power shuts off automatically if you jump off, and the pedals rise up to prevent leaning too far when the speed exceeds the safe range.

http://www.airwheel.net/images/airwheel_img3.jpg

As soon as you step onto an Airwheel unicycle, it feels like you are gliding and the trend is gaining popularity across the globe. But it’s not just for fun. City commuters are now using them to cover the last few miles from the Tube station to home. Compared with a Segway for example, the Airwheel electric unicycle is so lightweight, you can zoom to your station, store it in the overhead compartment, get to your destination, take it down and zoom to work.

The company has now also launched a twin-wheeled version, which is even easier to learn to ride. Go on and see for yourself.

TVChannels4U.com steps into its lifecycle in the midst of the myriad of digital milestones that ran through 2014 and now into 2015 – traditional TV ratings continue to experience pronounced declines as the consumption of premium programming continues to migrate toward emerging platforms.

According to the recent report – U.S. Digital Future In Focus 2015 published by comScore – across every age demographic, there is a substantially higher percentage of multi-platform and mobile-only Internet users than in the previous year. Digital video viewing still occurs most frequently via desktop computer, but mobile video viewing is on the rise. Nearly 7 in 8 Americans watch online video with more than half doing so daily. Slightly below half of smartphone and tablet users watch video on all their devices, with about 1 in 10 doing so daily, suggesting there is room for significant growth. TVChannels4U has assembled a premium publisher network that distributes to many of the most highly trafficked websites online providing these sites with top-tier programming for a collective audience in the multi-millions monthly. TVChannels4U.com provides high-value content producers a distribution outlet that guides their content through the clutter and noise of traditional distribution platforms, and directly into the arms of viewers who know what they want and when they want to see it. Over-the-top (OTT) devices such as Apple TV, Google Chromecast, and Microsoft Xbox are also gaining adoption and driving extended engagement of digital viewing. The validity that comScore brings to the table showcases the rapid nature of the transformation taking place in programming and distribution, TVChannels4U.com syncs up with this sea change and provides premium programming viewed through premium distribution channels across all devices.
