LIMA, PERU, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — There is a Change in Power happening around the world as a combination of natural gas and renewables dominate new installation activity in the power generation sector. Nowhere is this more apparent than in Latin America. In the past 25 years, natural gas power generation saw an almost three-fold increase in its share of total power generation in the region, and it is projected to grow more than 150% in the next 25 years, according to the IEEJ Outlook 2018. At the same time, a new generation of advanced class gas turbines (ACGT) has emerged as the leading natural gas power generation technology around the world.

Today, Mitsubishi Hitachi Power Systems (MHPS), the world’s leading provider of advanced class gas turbines, hosted a “Change in Power” natural gas power generation technical conference in Lima, Peru. Independent Power Producers (IPP’s) and other industry participants from across Latin America were on hand to discuss their experiences and showcase best practices on how to thrive in this dynamic power market.

In addition, MHPS and local power developer Gaz Energie signed an agreement to develop a 515 MW natural gas power project that will have the lowest cost of electricity and the lowest emissions of any gas power plant in Peru.

The Humay PS Project will be located in the Ica region of Peru and will leverage MHPS’ industry-leading JAC gas turbine power island, featuring the largest, most reliable and most fuel efficient gas turbine in the world. The new plant will enter commercial operation in 2021.

“As we advance through project development, MHPS’ financial, technical and development support has assured our team that we have a long-term partner in Humay PS. Our next step is to formalize our EPC contractor selection, with whom MHPS has agreed to consort to deliver a true turnkey project for Peru,” said Miguel Saldana, Vice President of Gaz Energie.

“Power producers in Latin America are looking for best in class options to generate clean, reliable and affordable electricity,” said Paul Browning, MHPS Americas President and CEO. “MHPS’ innovative gas turbine technologies and digital solutions allow customers to set new standards for both efficiency and reliability. Two years ago we started talking about and preparing for the Change in Power that is happening in our industry. By listening to the needs of our customers in Latin America, we have developed the capability to be not only a technology partner, but also a financial partner and a construction partner. The Humay PS project will demonstrate all of these capabilities, and will be a showcase project for Peru and for the region.”

Intermountain Healthcare Announces Zero Suicide Initiative

SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH, USA, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — A new initiative, called Zero Suicide, will be helping to reduce suicide losses in Utah — which have been increasing for the past few years. Utah has one of the highest suicide rates in the nation. Several studies released recently by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) have shown that suicide rates have increased among all age groups.

"Last year, 45,000 people died by suicide in the United States, 630 of them in Utah," said Mark Foote, MD, senior medical director of Intermountain Healthcare Behavioral Health. "Suicide is not a new problem. The rate has gone up and down over time, but over the last 15 years, the rate has steadily gone up. This is no longer just a behavioral health problem — this is a public health crisis. We need to engage our entire system and our communities in combatting this horrible problem."

Intermountain Healthcare, the State of Utah, and numerous community groups have partnered together to find ways to reduce the deaths. Intermountain will target their suicide prevention efforts in three areas:

• Improving access to behavioral care, in part by adhering to best practices to screen, assess, and develop safety plans.
• Preparing caregivers and community organizations about how to talk about suicide and help those at risk seek help and create safety plans.
• Raising awareness about restricting access to lethal means.

Intermountain has worked for the past decade on mental health integration – bringing mental health best practices into the primary care provider’s offices. A family doctor can screen for depression, anxiety and other mental health concerns – and help get resources for their patients to be treated.

"In the future, none of us should feel at a loss for what we can do to help. As we implement the Zero Suicide framework as a part of our overall commitment to Zero Harm, we'll take a systematic approach to quality improvement that will make it easier for all of us to lead together to achieve Zero Suicide. Zero is the only acceptable number," said Mikelle Moore, Intermountain’s senior vice president of Community Health.

Intermountain Healthcare is a Utah-based not-for-profit system of 22 hospitals, 170 clinics, a Medical Group with about 2,300 employed physicians and advanced practice clinicians, a health plans group called SelectHealth, and other medical services. Intermountain is widely recognized as a leader in transforming healthcare through high quality and sustainable costs. For more information about Intermountain, visit www.intermountainhealthcare.org.

“We are looking forward to yet another successful conference in North America, this time in the wonderful setting of New York.”

Ideagen Horizons North America is now in its third year having previously been held in both Chicago and Orlando. The event has continued to grow in stature and size each year.

The agenda for the 2018 event has still to be confirmed. However, previous years have included analysis of product roadmaps, product master classes and an evening networking reception. Customer presentations and Q&A sessions have also been included.

The announcement of Ideagen Horizons North America comes just months after Ideagen acquired its first US-based business in the form of New York and Texas-based Medforce Technologies Inc for $8.7m. https://www.ideagen.com/company/news/ideagen-acquires-us-based-medforce-technologies-inc/

Knight Bridge Investment Consultants Limited – Strong Earning Push S&P500 to 5 Month Highs

Earnings Season Starts Positively – S&P500 @ 5mth Highs

The S&P 500 rose to its highest in more than five months and the Dow climbed for a fifth session on Wednesday as solid earnings boosted stocks.

HONG KONG, HONG KONG, HONG KONG, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — Knight Bridge’s purpose is to provide access to alternative investment strategies for clients seeking to achieve a diverse and profitable portfolio. Today’s asset allocation landscape is more than just equities and bonds. Our goal is to keep our clients fully informed as to the different alternatives available in today’s climate, maximizing returns and allocating investment products for long-term results that support clients’ retention for their investment cycle.

Major News and Moves

Amazon briefly tops $900 bln in market cap
Morgan Stanley jumps on earnings beat
UAL, CSX results boost transportation stocks
Dow up 0.32 pct, S&P up 0.22 pct, Nasdaq down 0.01 pct

The S&P 500 rose to its highest in more than five months and the Dow climbed for a fifth session on Wednesday as solid earnings boosted financial and industrial stocks and reinforced expectations for a strong second-quarter reporting season.

Upbeat earnings from railroad CSX Corp and airline United Continental helped lift the S&P 500 industrials index, which gained 1.1 percent and was among the day’s best-performing sectors.

Both the Healthcare and the Energy sectors saw gains, both adding close to 5% for July so far making them sectors to keep an eye on.

The Dow Jones Transport Average jumped 2.3 percent, its biggest daily advance in three months.
Although it is still early in the reporting period, estimates for the U.S. earnings season are improving as more companies release results.

S&P 500 earnings are now expected to have increased 21.4 percent in the second quarter, up from an estimate of 20.7 percent on July 1. Of the 48 companies in the index that have reported so far, 87.5 percent posted earnings above analyst expectations.

“We’ve been having this very nice rally,” said Jim Anderson, chief market analyst at Knight Bridge Investment Consultants in Hong Kong. “The reason for that is earnings and valuations.”

“I think the market would be a lot higher right now if it wasn’t for people worried about trade,” Anderson said.

Federal Reserve Chairman Jerome Powell, questioned by members of a House of Representatives committee, repeated on Wednesday that rising world protectionism would over time pose a risk to a U.S. and global expansion that appears largely on track to continue.

The Dow Jones Industrial Average rose 79.4 points, or 0.32 percent, to 25,199.29, the S&P 500 gained 6.07 points, or 0.22 percent, to 2,815.62 and the Nasdaq Composite dropped 0.67 point, or 0.01 percent, to 7,854.44.

Data showed the U.S. housing market continues to be an economic soft spot. Housing starts fell 12.3 percent in June to a nine-month low as homebuilders struggled with higher lumber prices and persistent land and labor shortages.

Amazon.com’s stock market value briefly reached $900 billion for the first time, marking a major milestone in its 21-year trajectory as a publicly listed company and threatening to dislodge Apple as Wall Street’s most valuable jewel.

Berkshire Hathaway led the financial sector higher, rising 5.3 percent on news that the company eliminated a restriction on its ability to buy back its own stock.

Morgan Stanley shares rose 2.8 percent after the investment bank reported better-than-expected quarterly profit.

Shares of Google parent Alphabet edged lower after EU antitrust regulators hit the tech company with a record $5 billion fine.

Advancing issues outnumbered declining ones on the NYSE by a 1.21-to-1 ratio; on Nasdaq, a 1.18-to-1 ratio favored advancers.

The S&P 500 posted 30 new 52-week highs and no new lows; the Nasdaq Composite recorded 102 new highs and 47 new lows.

Volume on U.S. exchanges was 6.0 billion shares, compared to the 6.48 billion average over the last 20 trading days.

Even with all of the concerns over potential trade issues between the US, China and Europe, we are still seeing positive economic data coming from these three regions, to find out more about where Knight Bridge Investment Consultants Limited sees value, both domestically and internationally, visit www.knightbridgeinvestment.com or contact us at info@knightbridgeinvestment.com for further information.

New York Corporate Whistleblower Center Now Urges an Analyst or Broker with Proof A Bank or Real Estate Developer Is Lying About Profitability to Inflate the Stock Price to Call About Whistleblower Rewards

Call us at 866-714-6466 if you can prove senior management at a publicly traded company is lying to shareholders about profitability or liabilities.”

— New York Corporate Whistleblower Center

WASHINGTON, DC, USA, July 19, 2018 /EINPresswire.com/ — According to the New York Corporate Whistleblower Center, "If you are an employee of a publicly traded bank, mortgage lending company, a real estate developer or a stock broker analyst who watches a company-institution like this very closely-please call us anytime at 866-714-6466 if you can prove senior management is lying about profitability or liabilities. The whistleblower rewards for this type of information can be in the millions of dollars and frequently the whistleblower remains anonymous-his/her name is not disclosed." http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

The Corporate Whistleblower Center would like to hear from mortgage, banking or real estate developer employees or insiders with proof of the following:

* A shopping center or multi-family apartment REIT CEO who is lying to shareholders about profits or long-term outlook.
* A bank CEO who is lying to their customers about mortgage fees, and or the buyer receiving the 'best possible interest rates' or title insurance costs or related fees.
* Bank senior management that is gouging bank mortgage borrowers on interest rates, mortgage fees, and associated products such as title insurance where the bank is receiving an illegal kickback.
* A publicly traded home builder that knowingly hires subcontractors that pay no taxes on their employees because-the employees are illegal aliens.
* A national title insurance company that is paying bribes or kickbacks to various real estate brokers nationwide so the brokers will force their clients into using an overpriced title insurance policy.

The New York Corporate Whistleblower Center says, "If you work as a manager for a bank, mortgage lender a real estate developer or a regional or national home builder or you are a stock broker analyst who has proof a company is lying to shareholders about profitability or liabilities please give us a call at 866-714-6466 and let's have a confidential chat about the SEC whistleblower program. This program is all about keeping publicly traded companies honest with their shareholders. Please don't sit on a potentially winning lotto ticket without ever knowing what it might have been worth." http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Simple rules for a whistleblower from the Corporate Whistleblower Center: Do not go to the government first if you are a potential whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing. The Corporate Whistleblower Center says, “Major whistleblowers frequently go to the government thinking they will help. It’s a huge mistake. Do not go to the news media with your whistleblower information. Public revelation of a whistleblower’s information could destroy any prospect for a reward. Do not try to force a company/employer or individual to come clean about significant lying to their shareholders, Medicare fraud, overbilling the federal government for services never rendered, multi-million-dollar state or federal tax evasion, or a New York based company falsely claiming to be a minority owned business to get preferential treatment on federal or state projects. Come to us first, tell us what type of information you have, and if we think it’s sufficient, we will help you with a focus on you getting rewarded.” http://CorporateWhistleblower.Com

Unlike any group in the US the Corporate Whistleblower Center can assist a potential whistleblower with packaging or building out their information to potentially increase the reward potential. They will also provide the whistleblower with access to some of the most skilled whistleblower attorneys in the nation. For more information a possible whistleblower with substantial proof of wrongdoing anywhere in New York State can contact the Whistleblower Center at 866-714-6466 or contact them via their website at http://NewYork.CorporateWhistleBlower.Com.

For information about a recent SEC whistleblower reward please refer to a July 2017 Securities and Exchange Commission press release on this topic: https://www.sec.gov/news/press-release/2017-134

Glosfer applied its blockchain technology to build a transparent proposal evaluation system for the local government that prevents falsification and removes any element of doubt bidders or residents may have in the bidding process.

This blockchain-based proposal evaluation system has garnered much attention as a new case of blockchain technology adoption by a local government.

“With the new system, we will be able to streamline the administrative work of relevant departments included in the proposal evaluation process,” said an official from the Yeongdeungpo District Office, adding that the “evaluation process is expected to become more transparent and reliable.”

CEO Taewon Kim of Glosfer commented that he is “thankful and happy to be able to commercialize the blockchain technology for another local government, having launched the Nowon Cash in Nowon District on February 1.” Kim said that the “proposal evaluation system for Yeongdeungpo District is also where blockchain technology can be applied,” adding that he will “make more effort to create a transparent and fair society.”

Previously, Glosfer helped Nowon District adopt blockchain-based local cryptocurrency, Nowon Cash. Since its adoption, Nowon Cash has been acknowledged as a success case with an increase in usage and volunteer work inquiries.
