New Validator Torque Wrench Tester by Mountz Inc.

Torque Wrench Tester

There is now a better way to validate torque wrenches, instantly and efficiently to ensure torque wrenches are performing.

Mountz, Inc., the torque tool specialists®, introduces the Validator a new torque wrench tester.

SAN JOSE, CA, USA, January 31, 2018 / — Mountz, Inc., the torque tool specialists®, introduces the Validator a new torque wrench tester. The Validator is torque measuring instrument designed for testing and calibrating torque wrenches. The economical torque wrench tester is small and compact. The Validator offers a torque range capacity from 40 – 200 foot-pounds. Measuring torque is literally a science and not something that can be left to chance.

Torque wrenches go out of calibration with use. Calibrating a torque wrench is a fine-tuning process of bringing the tool back within its tolerance. A regular wrench calibration and re-calibration guarantees the operator repeatable accuracy and adherence to international standards. Torque testing also ensures a torque wrench is operating to peak performance and can highlight potential tooling problems before it arises due to tool wear or broken components.

Torque wrench testers can also be used for quick tools tests on the assembly line or in the calibration lab to determine whether wrenches are holding a given setting. The Validator allows for instant verification that a wrench is still in calibration. Coupled with a torque wrench management and maintenance program the Validator can provide significant cost savings by not relying on a time-based calibration interval, but by servicing a wrench only when the wrench starts displaying the incorrect torque during in-house testing.

By performing periodic validations with a torque wrench a technician can be confident that the tool is producing accurately the desired torque setting. Periodic checks can be accomplished quickly with the use of the Validator's "Pass / Fail" visual feedback system. A preset a target torque and tolerance are programmed and if a torque reading falls within the tolerance a green light is illuminated, "Pass". A red light is illuminated for any out of tolerance readings, "Fail". The operator only needs to look at the lights. The robust torque tester is ideal for field service, maintenance and production applications.

Using a quality torque measurement equipment makes a safer world through accuracy and precision. Controlling torque is essential for companies to ensure their product's quality, safety and reliability isn't compromised. The failure of a three-cent fastener that isn't properly tightened can lead to catastrophic or latent failures. Fasteners that are insufficiently fastened can vibrate loose and excessive torque can strip threaded fasteners.

Study Shows Ketosis Fights Alzheimer's Disease

Ketosis Strips

An increasing number of studies report that interventions to enhance metabolic health can
alleviate symptoms and reduce brain pathology associated with AD.

PALM BEACH GARDENS, FL, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2018 / — Despite decades of attempts to develop a medication that cures or prevents Alzheimer's
disease (AD), the most common form of dementia afflicting our aging population, there's
presently no cure for this devastating illness. Emerging research indicates that such a miracle
remedy might already exist, maybe not in the kind of a pill, but as a straightforward dietary
modification. People can check for ketones by using ketosis strips. They are inexpensive and
can be found at the local pharmacy or online at

An increasing number of studies report that interventions to enhance metabolic health can
alleviate symptoms and reduce brain pathology associated with AD. A favorite theory posits
that AD has numerous causes, but their common thread can demand metabolic breakdown.
Indeed, markers of poor metabolic health, like diabetes, inflammation and higher cholesterol,
are significant risk factors for AD.

The same as our muscles, the brain requires energy to function properly. Both neurons and
muscles have the unique capability to metabolize ketones as an alternative fuel source when
sugar is in short supply, for example through fasting or on a low-carbohydrate diet. In the
1920s scientists discovered a high-fat diet boosting ketogenesis controlled epilepsy. Also
ketosis is still one of the very best treatments for the condition. This increased the possibility
that ketones may also be neuroprotective against other diseases that stem from aberrant
neural metabolism, such as AD. Since then, research has confirmed that ketones do in fact
alter brain metabolism in ways that decrease neuropathology and relieve behavioral signs.
People can check for ketones by using ketosis strips. They are inexpensive and can be found
at the local pharmacy or online at

Ketones relieve symptoms of Alzheimer's disease

Over the last ten years, several studies have affirmed the clinical value of ketosis in cognitively
impaired patients. At a 2004 study, twenty people with AD or Mild Cognitive Impairment (MCI)
were treated with placebo or medium chain triglycerides, a sort of saturated fat found in
coconut and palm oils that boosts ketone production. The treatment increased ketone levels 90
minutes afterward, and these higher ketone levels corresponded with increased memory
improvements. All these preliminary, short-term findings were followed up five years later in a
bigger and longer-term study of 152 mild AD patients. After 45 days, individuals taking a
ketogenic chemical showed cognitive enhancements relative to a placebo group. But, both
these studies imply that the brain benefits of ketosis may depend on genetics. In the prior
study, medium chain triglycerides improved cognitive functioning only in participants with no
ApoE4 allele, a genetic risk factor for AD. Similarly, in the later study, cognitive improvements
had been more powerful and persisted longer–outside to 90 days–in those without the ApoE4
allele. A new PLOS One analysis confirmed different answers to diet based on genetics in
mice, reporting a high-fat diet lowered brain levels of ApoE only in mice with no ApoE4 gene.

These promising early findings of ketogenic compounds provided hope that dietary
interventions might similarly benefit brain health. A 2012 study tested whether memory could
be improved by simply adopting a low-carbohydrate diet, without the necessity of supplements
used in the prior studies. Of 23 people with MCI, those after an extremely low-carbohydrate
diet for six months showed improved memory in contrast to people on a high-carbohydrate
diet. These memory enhancements correlated with ketone levels, but maybe not with carbs
consumed, insulin levels or body fat, pointing to increased ketogenesis because the probable
reason behind its low carb dieters' cognitive enhancement.

Although ketosis hasn't been rigorously tested in a proper clinical trial, a recent case study
provides compelling proof that ketones might, in fact, hold up in acute clinical cases. A 63-yearold
guy with advanced AD started consuming coconut oil and medium chain triglycerides, both
proven to increase ketone levels. After just 2.5 months, his score on the Mini-Mental State
Exam, a test of global cognitive functioning, improved from a very low 12 to 20 (from a
maximum 30). After two years, his cognitive capacity and daily living functions both improved
and his MRI revealed no additional brain atrophy. After adding a ketone ester supplement to
his dietary regimen, the patient revealed even further improvements in his disposition, selfsufficiency,
and memory. Notably, this man completed the ApoE4 gene; thus, ketosis does
appear to be extremely beneficial for ApoE4 carriers, even if previous studies suggest it's even
more helpful for those without this risk factor.

How ketones protect the brain

Scientists have looked to animal models to better understand how ketosis may protect the
human brain from neurodegeneration. In a mouse model of AD, amounts of beta-amyloid, a
toxic protein that is elevated in AD, were decreased in the brains of mice fed a high-fat/lowcarb
diet compared to those on a standard diet. Latest research helped to clarify the
connection between the metabolic benefits of ketones, lower amyloid, and improved cognitive
functioning. This study tested the effects ketones either in a mouse model of AD and neurons
treated with amyloid. What's more, ketones decreased amyloid levels and obstructed the
formation of pores in cell membranes induced by amyloid, showing that ketones can protect
against cerebral damage linked to amyloid. At length, ketones revived normal synaptic
plasticity and memory performance which were impaired by amyloid.

A prescription for Ketosis

If ketosis would be to become confirmed as an effective treatment for AD, further study is
needed to determine the appropriate method of administration, since high-fat diets, medium
chain triglyceride supplements or ketogenic substances might be differentially effective. Patient
compliance in following a strict diet or taking supplements may also pose potential challenges.
Identifying the minimum effective dose will help establish guidelines for how rigorous a
treatment regimen is necessary. Despite these remaining questions, the compelling support for
the healing potential of ketosis provides hope that a powerful weapon in our struggle against
AD may already exist–and can be as delicious as a spoonful of coconut oil.

CSA Balloons Presents the Biggest Event Trends for 2018

Custom Balloon Printing

Balloon decorations that include your logo will immediately engage your guests and highlight your brand… The investment is priceless!

Custom Balloon Decorations

Balloon Decorations New York

CSA Balloons customers can now rely on CSA for all their balloon decoration needs.

2018 has taken-off and so have new trends in the Event Planning Industry

Our clients are proud to display our balloons because they are 100% biodegradable and recyclable”

— CSA Balloons President, Csaba Laviolette

BOUCHERVILLE, QUEBEC, CANADA , January 31, 2018 / — As the leading custom balloon printers in North-America, the folks at CSA Balloons know a thing or two about event planning. CSA Balloons has printed custom balloons for some of the most notable brands in the world. They have printed millions of balloons for companies attending the most prestigious and relevant trade shows and specialized conferences in the United States, Canada, and around the world.

Here is a look at what they think will be the biggest trends in event planning for 2018.

Customize and Personalize as Much as You Can

We live in an era where “one size fits all” doesn’t work for anyone. Customizing event details will go a long way in creating that wow effect everyone is looking for. “Our clients contact us because we can customize any image or message on balloons. We have seen such a drastic increase in event-related orders, that we can definitely call it a trend!”, mentions CSA Balloons President, Csaba Laviolette.

Squeeze Value Out of Every Detail

It’s simple, businesses want the most bang for their buck. With budget constraints and fierce competition, as an event planner, you will need to squeeze the value out of every detail. To do so, CSA recommends finding more than one purpose for every element of your event. “Our balloons provide a striking background to any setting but are also great marketing tools. So many of our clients chose to print their logos on balloons that they then opt to distribute as promotional giveaways at the end of the event”.

Engage, Engage, and Engage Some More

People want to be impressed. If they are, they will share their experience with others through social media and other means. Engaging event participants is therefore imperative. Guests at events want to feel like they are part of something bigger. Amaze them with a touch of originality and see the impact it will have on social media.

Unique is the Only way to go on the Venue

This is perhaps one of the biggest trends of the year 2018. “Our clients are coming up with such original venues, it’s pretty incredible! We look forward to seeing what event planners will come up with in the upcoming months”.

Sprinkle your Event with Local Flavor

Food, history, local art… Anything local will add a ton of value to your event. This trend stems from the fact that many event participants come from other cities or even countries. The local accents will therefore create a magical moment that will, hopefully stay with the participant for years to come. The idea is to create a wish you were here kind of atmosphere. The folks at CSA however warn us that overdoing this will result in event disaster. “You don’t want folk music and costumes to distract guests and take over your company’s brand. The first and main purpose is to bring attention to your company and/or message”.

Continue to Foster Sustainable Events

We are glad to say that this trend from past years is still very much alive in 2018. Green initiatives should continue to be a main objective in event planning for 2018. “Our clients are proud to display our balloons because they are 100% biodegradable and recyclable”.

About CSA Balloons:

For more than fifteen years, CSA Balloons has been a leader in custom balloon printing. With offices in Canada and the USA, they supply personalized balloons to clients throughout North-America. Their dedicated staff will help any business, association, or party planner create the perfect custom balloons for any event. Renowned for their impeccable print quality, fast delivery, and outstanding customer service, they are the top-choice balloon printers for businesses big and small.

Airline Cuts Inventory Time 80 Percent with Xerafy Automated Inventory Solution

Xerafy’s Automated Inventory Management Solution in action

Sichuan Airlines deploys Xerafy solution to track 60,000 assets in SAP

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, January 31, 2018 / — Xerafy, the global leader and innovator of Gen2 passive UHF RFID metal tags, today announced that it has implemented its Automated Inventory Solution to help Sichuan Airlines track and manage more than 60,000 items for warehouse management and on board the aircrafts.

Sichuan Airlines is a full-service operator with a fleet of more than 100 aircraft and 10,000 employees. The Chengdu, Sichuan-based company maintains hubs in Hangzhou, Sanya, Beijing, Xi'an, and Harbin.

The airline selected Xerafy to help implement an Automated Inventory Solution, including its Metal Skin labels, RFID readers, software and integration with SAP’s ERP system. Xerafy Metal Skin labels have been deployed to track stock in/out operations, item movement, and stock transfers in via its Inspection and Warehouse/Inventory Management departments. Using a combination of handheld RFID readers and fixed-position readers positioned at dock doors and other strategic locations, Sichuan Airlines staff are able to automatically record the movement of goods in and out of facilities, as items are put away or removed from shelves, and during daily, monthly and yearly inventory checks. The information gathered through the solution can then be used for big data analysis to help make better purchasing and inventory decisions.

Since going live with the new system in November 2017, daily inventory counts, which used to take two employees up to eight hours to complete, now can be completed in only two to three hours by just one person. Fixed inventory counts took five to six employees as many as 80 days to complete. Now that process takes just two weeks.

"We expect to save 70 to 80 percent of inventory management time after the implementation," said Mr. Duo, warehouse manager at Sichuan Airlines.

The RFID system also makes it possible for Sichuan to identify the exact location of missing items. In addition, the solution has eliminated manual data entry associated with the inventory process, which has eliminated data entry errors and made the information accessible much more quickly.

"The new RFID solution has made our inventory processes faster and more accurate," Duo continued. "This solution has been quickly integrated with our ERP system, creating new levels of inventory visibility across our operations."

The Automated Inventory Management solution is also being used for tracking life vests on Sichuan Airlines aircrafts. These critical safety items require regular inspection counts that often took up to four hours for a plane with 300 seats and life vests. Now, those inspections take just 10 minutes. Because of the time savings, Sichuan has been able to increase the number of inspections from one check every three months to a monthly inspection process that increases passenger safety.

In addition, the solution has helped reduce inventory costs by allowing the airline to replace the vests closer to their expiration date. In the past, Sichuan replaced the vests an average of three months prior to the expiration date. Now they can replace them within two weeks of the expiration date thanks to more frequent inspections.

Sichuan Airlines recognized that data collection on aircraft using RFID tags that comply with the SAE AS5678 standard could significantly reduce the time required to complete its inventory activities. Rugged RFID tags and labels can provide companies with a real-time view of inventory inside a warehouse, as well as traceability of items (including a complete electronic record of inventory use) as they are placed into service. Compliance with the AS5678 standard ensures the RFID tags can safely operate on an aircraft during flight, providing an accurate history of the location of each asset in service.

Maintenance, Repair and Operations (MRO) inventory management has become increasingly complex and time consuming in the airline industry. As MRO inventory volumes increase, manual tracking of equipment can lead to inaccuracies as well as consuming hours of costly labor. High-value items may be frequently lost or damaged, and a full inventory count can take up to three months.

"Manual inventory management processes add enormous expense and time to airline operations," said Dennis Khoo, CEO and founder of Xerafy. "Xerafy's Automated Inventory Management solution has enabled Sichuan Airlines to track a wide variety of high-value assets across their facilities and aircrafts, generating real-time data that helps them reduce costs and make better inventory decisions."

About Xerafy Ltd.:

Xerafy enables real-time traceability and asset management in Healthcare, Oil & Gas and Manufacturing. We lead in RFID innovations for demanding environments and redefine the market expectations for durable and reliable performance. Xerafy is headquartered in Singapore with offices in the U.S., U.K. and China.

John Smith Insurance Agency Discusses Report of Technology Impacting Insurance Rates in Colorado

John Smith works for John Smith Insurance Agency which provides auto insurance in Colorado Springs. Affordable rates and superior service for all home, auto and business/commercial insurance needs.

Experts say that new high-tech gadgets which are being added to more vehicles are helping to drive up the price of car insurance in Colorado Springs

COLORADO SPRINGS, CO, UNITED STATES, January 31, 2018 / — Experts say that new high-tech gadgets which are being added to more vehicles are helping to drive up the price of auto insurance in Colorado Springs and all over the country. Even safety features are part of this trend that results in more drivers paying higher insurance premiums. John Smith Insurance Agency says the changes are across the board rather than aimed at one category of vehicle or even a single price range.

More vehicles have some of the latest safety features added as part of the base level of the model. Others are part of technology or safety packages. Features such as backup cameras, parking assistance, and systems that alert drivers to drifting in another lane, a vehicle ahead or pedestrians behind them make drivers feel safer behind the wheel. They have been proven to work, helping to reduce the number of accidents or the severity of the injury in a collision. Many drivers expect the result to be lower car insurance premiums because the likelihood of an accident goes down with the addition of certain safety features. However, this is not the only factor considered when determining insurance rates. The cost to repair the vehicle is another consideration, and it is one reason some insurance rates are going up instead of down.

The new technology is often expensive to purchase and replace on these vehicles, which results in a higher cost for repair when a vehicle is damaged in an accident. A study from a leading Insurance carrier showed that just two years can make a difference in the price of parts. For example, a bumper needing to be replaced on a luxury car would be about $1,845 for a 2014 model but $3,550 for a 2016 model. With prices almost doubling in certain instances, it isn’t surprising that insurance companies are passing down the additional costs through insurance premiums. Even small repairs are more expensive because they are more complicated than in the past.

John Smith Insurance Agency says the tradeoff is probably worth it though. "Even one accident can raise your insurance premiums," John Smith explains about car insurance in Colorado Springs, CO. "Many of these accidents will be avoided with the addition of new technology." He mentions a minor fender bender in a parking lot as one car backs out as a prime example. "Thanks to rearview cameras and sensors, more drivers are able to avoid these accidents." Not only does the technology prevent damage to other vehicles, but it can also prevent injury to people.

Smith's advice to anyone looking to buy a new vehicle and adding technology packages is to contact the insurance agent first to find out what the new premiums would be. Then, they can make a good decision about what kind of vehicle they can afford and still feel safe in. He does not advise trading in safety to save money, but to find a vehicle that fits in their budget, including the monthly insurance premiums.

SINGAPORE, SINGAPORE, February 1, 2018 / — fidentiaX, the World’s 1st Marketplace for Tradable Policies powered by blockchain technology, together with iXledger, a ground-breaking alternative marketplace for reinsurers, insurers and brokers to trade insurance products directly, are pleased to share the initiatives between the two disruptive marketplaces.

Connectivity between two Marketplace to Disrupt the “Distribution-Chain”

Insurance policies are, in their simplest form, means of transferring risk. Policyholders purchase an insurance policy to transfer a certain form of insurable risk to the insurer, who will then “re-sell” that risk to the reinsurer.

The “distribution-chain” however is not as simple and involves various intermediaries between the policyholder and the insurer, such as Agents (independent, tied/exclusive, insurer-employed and self-employed), Brokers (retail, wholesale, syndicate, etc) and Reinsurers. The involvement of these various intermediaries creates an additional layer of cost supported by the policyholder.

Connecting fidentiaX’s Marketplace directly to iXledger’s Marketplace would allow members of fidentiaX’s Marketplace direct access to iXledger’s Marketplace participants product offerings. With blockchain technology and the connectivity between the two Marketplaces, the potential cost savings on both ends of the spectrum will be significant.

Additional Utility for fdX and IXT tokens within fidentiaX Marketplace

There are numerous advantages of including tradable policies as part of an investment portfolio such as better Risk-Return performance versus similar risk class instrument, inherent capital preservation feature and liquidity.

Both fidentiaX and iXledger believe that this new “asset class” could be a welcoming addition to an individual/corporate portfolio and hence the inclusion of fdX and IXT tokens for the purchase of tradable policies on fidentiaX’s Marketplace.

fidentiaX’s Marketplace will be accepting the following for the purchase of tradable policies on the platform:

– Fiat Currencies (e.g. EUR, USD, GBP, AUD, SGD, etc)
– BTC (Bitcoin)
– ETH (Ethereum)
– fdX (tokens issued by fidentiaX)
– IXT (tokens issued by iXledger)

“Since the announcement of our strategic partnership with iXledger back in November 2017, both teams have been working closely together on solutions to democratize the insurance industry. This is just the first step towards our joint vision of “waking the sleeping giant”. We are very excited about the potential of this partnership.” Alvin Ang, Co-founder of fidentiaX

“By partnering with fidentiaX we are able to add B2C offerings to iXledger which is part of our core strategy. We are very excited to enter the Asian markets together with fidentiaX and with the newly opened iXledger Singapore office, we are well positioned to take advantage of the unique opportunities within this growing market”. Ingemar Svensson, Founder and CEO, iXledger
