Bodyscan Unveils New Fat-loss Calorie Calculator


New tool reveals calories, deficit and timeline to achieve a healthy level of body fat

LONDON, Jan. 14, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- UK fat-screening company Bodyscan has developed a new online calculator that tells clients how much fat they need to lose, how many calories they need to eat and how long it will take to reach their goal.

Bodyscan shows what eating 400 fewer calories a day can achieve â€�“ 19kg of fat-loss in a year

The results provide clients with an achievable, sustainable plan to lose fat as well as setting realistic expectations about how long it will take to get back in shape.

"Most diets fail because they are unrealistic," says Philip Chant, director of Bodyscan. "People think they can reverse years of over-eating in a few days but the best fat-loss diet is the one you stick to, which means a small calorie deficit over a longer period."

The calculator ensures safe dieting by ensuring that daily consumption is not less than 1200 calories a day for a woman, and 1400 calories per day for a man.

Only Bodyscan clients are given access to the full version of the calculator, which will also determine how many calories an individual burns each day and the amount of fat-loss actually required, as well as explore increases in muscle mass.

A free, simpler version of the calculator is at

For Bodyscan clients, the amount of body fat to lose is revealed by the company's advanced body scanner, which accurately measures fat mass precise to a single gram. The need for fat-loss may be influenced by unhealthy visceral fat, which surrounds internal organs and is linked to type-2 diabetes and heart disease.

Ultimately, the new calculator provides comprehensive information that increase the chance of diet success â€�“ a fat-loss target, a daily calorie deficit, total calories to consume and the number of weeks required.

About Bodyscan

Bodyscan ( is the only company in the UK dedicated to measuring body composition with highly accurate DEXA (dual-energy X-ray) technology. It has two London clinics, in Marylebone High Street and Cornhill in the City of London. Since 2015 we have performed more than 10,000 scans and 75% of clients cite "fat loss" as the reason for their scan.

PRN: Kindred Group plc - Unaudited Trading Update for the Fourth Quarter 2019 Mon, 13 Jan 2020 17:05:47 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Kindred Group plc - Unaudited Trading Update for the Fourth Quarter 2019


STOCKHOLM, Sweden, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Since the publication of the third quarter report on 25 October 2019, gross winnings revenues across most markets have been impacted by weak sports betting margins. The margin after free bets was 8.1 per cent for the quarter, compared to 9.4 per cent in the fourth quarter of 2018. The gross turnover for the sportsbook increased by 3 per cent (5 per cent in constant currencies) compared to the fourth quarter 2018.

The most significant deviation in sports betting margin occurred in France. As betting duties in France were calculated on the basis of betting turnover, the financial impact was greatly increased. From 1 January 2020, the basis of calculation of betting duties in France has changed to a tax based on gross gaming revenue, which is more stable.

As previously communicated, Kindred has continued to grow its market presence in the US. For the fourth quarter of 2019, the negative impact on the underlying EBITDA was about GBP 6 million.

Gross winnings revenue and EBITDA have continued to be negatively impacted by regulatory changes in Sweden and the Netherlands, although performance in Sweden improved significantly compared to prior quarters.

Kindred estimates gross winning revenue for the fourth quarter of 2019 of about GBP 235 million (Q4-2018: GBP 250.1 million) unaudited.

Underlying unaudited EBITDA for the fourth quarter of 2019 is estimated to be in the range GBP 27-32 million (Q4-2018: GBP 58.8 million).

Active customers for the quarter amounted to 1.6 million which was an increase of 2 per cent compared to the same quarter last year.  

Following on from the already implemented cost limitation actions earlier in 2019, Kindred's management will continue to implement a number of additional operational efficiency initiatives to ensure that the group can deliver growth in revenues and underlying EBITDA in 2020 compared to 2019. 

The Interim report for the fourth quarter of 2019 will be published on 12 February 2020.

Kindred Group's CEO Henrik Tjärnström will host a call in English on Tuesday 14 January 2020 at 8.00 CET.

The telephone numbers are SE: +46 8 5664 2695, UK: +44 33 3300 9267.

Douglas Von Irvin's Carnival Release First Video "Cave Man Rock" 1.14.20


LOS ANGELES, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Theatrical garage pop band Douglas Von Irvin's Carnival will release the video for their first single "Cave Man Rock" on 1.13.20. The song will be available for download and streaming on Spotify, iTunes, Apple Music, Amazon and other digital platforms on 1.14.20. The record was produced by Matt Starr (Ace Frehley, Mr Big) and features performances by Walter Ino (Eagles of Death Metal), Starr and others. The single was mixed with engineer Smiley Sean (A Perfect Circle, Motley Crue). 

"We had a lot of fun making this record and I'm excited for everyone to hear it," says Starr. "The songs are great and there's a real theatrical element that made it a lot of fun to produce and mix."

DVIC was formed in late 2018 when Douglas Von Irvin and Dave Pryce, a.k.a. Dr Prycenstein, met in Las Vegas. The two shared a vision for creating fun and cinematic garage rock songs that would be well-suited for on stage theatrics as well as TV/film placement.

Pryce recalls, "After we met, Doug told me he wrote songs. When I heard them, I knew that we had to do something together. Every song was so fun and imaginative."

Von Irvin and Pryce reached out to Producer Matt Starr and the team began writing songs for the forthcoming release.

"It was a real team effort between myself, Dave and Matt," states Douglas. "We went over every single aspect of each song, making sure it was as strong as we could make it. There were no egos involved, just pure creativity. That was a lot of fun for me and a new experience."

Recording began in the spring of 2019 at Infinite Spin Records in Van Nuys, CA with engineer Marcel Miranda. The studio was previously owned by drummer Simon Phillips and had a long list of clients including Toto, Alan Parsons, Billy Ray Cyrus, Joe Satriani, Limp Bizkit, and others. 

Others releases to follow will be "Vampire Lovers" on Valentine's Day, "Punk Rock Heart", "Ultraman", and "Monster Pool Party". 

The video release will be supported by a Los Angeles performance at the Viper Room in West Hollywood, CA on 1.13.20. Rounding out the band will be drummer Stephen Mills (Gene Loves Jezebel) and keyboardist Sven Martin (Jonathan Davis, Liz Phair). 

The video was directed by Matt Starr in conjunction with Industrialism Films (Winery Dogs, Tom Keifer).

Putting Your Business in the Safest Hands


Unipart, the global manufacturing, logistics and consultancy group, says culture is at the heart of driving safety in an innovative, highly competitive business

OXFORD, England, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- What does it take to create one of the world's safest work environments?

Unipart's Martin Lockley and Angela Dobbins collect their Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour from British Safety Council chairman Lawrence Waterman (PRNewsfoto/Unipart Group)

According to Unipart, it is all about engaging your people.

Unipart's success in applying that engagement formula is borne out by an impressive track record in winning accolades for the company's health and safety record.

Unipart has won 55 Swords of Honour since 2011, more than any other company in its sector and this year added to its impressive achievement.

In addition, Unipart Logistics was among a handful of organisations to achieve both the Sword of Honour and Globe of Honour, awarded for environmental excellence. These British Safety Council awards are the pinnacle of achievement in terms of developing a health and safety culture.

Lawrence Waterman, Chairman of the British Safety Council, said: "The winners of Swords and Globes are ready to face the future because they have the right values, putting the health, safety and wellbeing of their employees and the future of our planet at the heart of what they do. They are an example to us all, in how to look after their employees, how to engage them in health and safety and how to strive to make our organisations places where people can thrive."

So how does Unipart continue to raise the bar in terms of improving health and safety on its sites internationally?


In an analogue world of the past, we engaged all employees everyday in making their sites safer, identifying risks and creating a 'safety' culture.

Today, we look at health and safety through a digital lens which enables us to use digital technologies to identify risks and share the information globally and almost instantly. Now digital enables us to collect and analyse data more effectively to predict and counter safety issues before they occur.

For instance, Unipart Logistics created a health and safety app for our sites in the NHS Supply Chain. When we took over the NHS Supply Chain logistics activity in February 2019, we benchmarked the sites against existing Unipart sites and using a digital app brought health and safety performance in line with Unipart's world-class level.

Digital technology has further driven Unipart's health and safety excellence more widely across all Unipart Logistics sites. For example, sensors and telematics in new mechanical handling equipment led to a 47 per cent reduction in incidents.

Meanwhile door sensors and electronic audits alert operatives to hazards or improve the efficiency of Unipart's audit and inspection activities. The data collected in these processes will be used in the future to predict and prevent unsafe events.

In Unipart Rail, employees developed their own health and safety apps to monitor behavioural safety, workplace inspections, and share new ideas across the division to improve safety.

World class benchmarks

Unipart has focused on world class benchmarks in health and safety. Unipart Logistics set a  lost time incident frequency rate (LTIFR) of 0.5 - half the industry requirement. Through proactively managing risk and engaging employees, Unipart's latest LTIFR rate was 0.37.

Unipart Rail achieved a five star audit for a third consecutive year. By further engaging employees in health and safety over the last 12 months, the division reduced accidents by 20 per cent and reduced RIDDOR incidents by 66 per cent.


Unipart's employee wellbeing strategy, Unipart Workwell, is helping to build a positive safety culture. Wellbeing champions at every site promote financial and healthy lifestyle wellness. Mental health wellbeing training forms part of managers' personal development.

Poor sleep affects between 10 and 20 per cent of the UK workforce and can lead to loss of productivity and focus in the workplace. All Unipart employees have access to Sleepio, a digital tool to help improve sleep and offer cognitive behaviour therapy to those suffering from insomnia or waking up feeling unrefreshed. More than one in 10 employees have taken the digital sleep test.

Steve Wilson from Unipart's consultancy, Unipart Expert Practices, helps other companies to build an engagement culture using Unipart's proprietary system for continuous improvement called The Unipart Way.

"The Unipart Way forms the basis of the work we do for our clients," said Wilson. "The capability we provide drives performance in health and safety, efficiency, productivity and quality.

"That's why we are incredibly proud that today The Unipart Way continues to be recognised for its contribution to health and safety at work.

"Implementing and maintaining the highest standards of health, safety and welfare is simply good business sense: a strong, performance-orientated culture cannot be nurtured in an unsafe environment."

(55:19) He unleashed the two seas so that they merge together,

(55:20) and yet there is a barrier between them which they may not overstep.

(55:21) which of the wonders of your Lord will you twain â€�“ you men and jinn â€�“ then deny?

(55:22) from these seas come forth pearls 20 and coral

(55:23) which of the wonders of your Allah's power will you twain â€�“ you men and jinn â€�“ then deny?


The place where the glory and blessing of the Heavenly Pearl is there; shall be a heaven on earth and shall attract everyone from all corners to see and seek blessing from 'the holy pearl'.

Matthew 13:45-46 (NIV)

"Again, the kingdom of heaven is like a merchant looking for fine pearls. When he found one of great value, he went away and sold everything he had and bought it."

Xinhua Silk Road: Haier actively takes part in public welfare undertakings worldwide


BEIJING, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Chinese home appliance giant Haier has long been committed to practicing corporate social responsibility and pushing forward public welfare undertakings.

Photo taken on July 5, 2019 shows a girl dances at the donation ceremony of Haier in a welfare house of the Philippines.

Last year, the company kicked off a worldwide public welfare activity, titled "Meet Global Haier, Enjoy Smart Life: Snapshot Haier", with an aim to bring healthy life for global users with strength and warmth.

AQUA, a global brand of Haier which was officially launched in Indonesia in 2015, passes down Haier's philosophy and attaches much importance to public welfare undertakings. Last year, it positively responded to the activity of "Snapshot Haier", sending TVs, refrigerators, washing machines, stationery and books to children in the local orphanage to pass on care and warmth to them.

In the Philippines, Haier also actively participated in public welfare undertaking. Last year the company donated a batch of much-needed home appliances as well as teaching aids to the local welfare house.

The company has a localized approach to meet demands of global users with customized products.

Haier has gained a strong foothold in Thailand. The secret of Haier's success in Thailand is localized marketing, actively communicating with users, analyzing market trends, and creating differentiated products. The company continuously identifies the needs of users in an attempt to develop customized products for Thai users.

In Russia, Haier launched last year a laundry appliances plant, which is the first Chinese-built intelligent manufacturing factory based on COSMOPlat platform in Europe. The company hired local R&D talents, factory workers and sales staffs in a bid to better adapt to the local market and create competitive edges. By now, the plant has created over 800 jobs directly for the local market and provided a stimulus to local economic growth.

Nanoemulsion Market to Reach $4.91 Bn, Globally, by 2026 at 11.5% CAGR: Allied Market Research


Increase in use of nanoemulsion in the food & beverages industry, and surge in trend of nanostructured food ingredients and additive in food & beverages drive the growth of the global nanoemulsion market

PORTLAND, Oregon, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Allied Market Research published a report, titled, "Nanoemulsion Market by Type (Small-molecule Surfactant, Protein-stabilized Emulsions, and Polysaccharide) and Application (Beverage, Dairy, and Bakery): Global Opportunity Analysis and Industry Forecast 2019-2026." As per the report, the global nanoemulsion industry was estimated at $2.08 billion in 2018 and is expected to reach $4.91 billion by 2026, growing at a CAGR of 11.5% from 2019 to 2026.

Allied Market Research Logo

Drivers, restraints, and opportunities-

Growing use of nanoemulsion in the food & beverages industry, and rising trend of nanostructured food ingredients and additive in food & beverages fuel the growth of the global nanoemulsion market. On the other hand, higher cost of nanoemulsion technology curtails down the growth to certain extent. However, with nano technology expanding its trend in various industries, a number of opportunities have been formed for the key players in the industry.

Request Sample Report at:

The small-molecule surfactant segment to maintain its leadership status till 2026-

Based on type, the small-molecule surfactant segment accounted for more than half of the global nanoemulsion market share in 2018, and is expected to retain its dominance by the end of 2026. The same segment is also projected to grow at the fastest CAGR of 11.9% throughout the forecast period. Considering the trends of customers in choosing food items, manufacturers are demanding latest technology in the food emulsifiers and ingredients. The Small-Molecule Surfactants having smaller size and having been produced by latest technological advancements attract the manufacturers, which has boosted the growth of the segment.

The beverages segment to dominate during the estimated period-

Based on application, the beverages segment contributed to nearly two-thirds of the global nanoemulsion market revenue in 2018, and is anticipated to maintain the lion's share by 2026. The same segment would also register the fastest CAGR of 12.2% during 2019â€�“2026. Vegetables and fruits contain health-related compounds that can impact on physiological processes, and reduce the risk of certain diseases along with improving the overall health. Importance of balanced and healthy diets has led the consumers to increase the consumption of vegetable based/ fruit juice based beverages.

North America to maintain its dominance throughout the forecast period-

Based on geography, North America held the major share in 2018, generating more than two-fifths of the global nanoemulsion market. This is attributed to the fact that consumers are much aware about the latest innovations in the food and beverage categories in this province. The Asia-Pacific region, on the other hand, would cite the fastest CAGR of 13.5% during the estimated period. The developing countries in the region are inviting manufacturers all around the world to invest out there and this factor is proving to be a market booster in this province for nanoemulsion market.

PRN: Verizon's Digital Signage Solution Awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2020 Best Practices Award Mon, 13 Jan 2020 09:50:43 +0100 PR Newswire Turismo PR Newswire Turismo

Verizon's Digital Signage Solution Awarded Frost & Sullivan's 2020 Best Practices Award


Chosen over other global digital signage vendors for leadership in innovation

SANTA CLARA, California, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Frost & Sullivan has awarded Verizon's Digital Signage solution the 2020 Global Product Line Strategy Leadership Award after a comprehensive research analysis of the digital signage market. Verizon's innovative Digital Signage solution is a complete plug-and-play single provider solution that combines hardware, software, and secure connectivity to simplify the delivery of visual communications. Verizon's cost-effective 4G LTE router and media player hardware solution connects to any high-definition HDMI-compatible display or sign over Verizon's fast and reliable 4G network. Customers can manage and deliver campaigns via a campaign management portal, which simplifies implementation and the user experience. Verizon's ecosystem of partner solutions can enhance capabilities with a suite of services to scale-up deployment dramatically.

"Verizon's Digital Signage solution is best-in-class for streamlining visual communications in a spectrum of settings such as retail, malls, restaurants, hospitals, college campuses, transit hubs, sports arenas, and concert venues. Verizon creates compelling brand experiences even when Wi-Fi is limited," said Melody Siefken, Research Analyst at Frost & Sullivan. "By combining a 4G LTE media player, campaign management portal, high-definition display, and connectivity, Verizon simplifies deployment. Signage administrators can also receive enhanced tools like real-time device alerts, remote screenshots, remote reboots, and companion mobile applications."

Verizon's hardware has all of the components needed to connect directly to a high definition HDMI-compatible display screen. The hardware kit includes an LTE media player with embedded 4G LTE SIM, HDMI cable, USB C power adapter with cable, two LTE antennae, and an optional Wi-Fi antenna and micro USB cable. Verizon's Digital Signage solution is easy to use and eliminates some of the technical challenges, empowering digital signage administrations and lessening the burden on IT teams.

Verizon creates a complete ecosystem that provides 24/7 security of the platform and the transport of data. This capability is highly valuable to industries such as financial services since the digital signage solution typically runs outside of a company's network. In addition, Verizon ports device IDs automatically into the customer portal, which allows administrators to configure the devices before shipment. As digital signage is a relatively new segment, Verizon's plug-and-play offering helps customers purchase and deploy the solution seamlessly without having to deal with multiple supplier contracts and complex licensing models that are difficult to manage.

"When customers are ready to deploy at scale, Verizon's ecosystem of partners enhances its signage solution with supplementary services such as HD display, installation and setup/deployment, content creation, managed services, and financing," noted Siefken. "The user-friendly design, cost efficiency, and versatility of Verizon's digital signage product portfolio have ensured its continued uptake, dramatically reduced its sales cycles, and will ultimately expand its revenue stream."

Each year, Frost & Sullivan presents this award to the company that develops a comprehensive product line that caters to the breadth of the market it serves. The award recognizes the extent to which the product line meets customer base demands, and the overall impact it has in terms of customer value and increased market share.

Frost & Sullivan Best Practices awards recognize companies in a variety of regional and global markets for demonstrating outstanding achievement and superior performance in areas such as leadership, technological innovation, customer service, and strategic product development. Industry analysts compare market participants and measure performance through in-depth interviews, analysis, and extensive secondary research to identify best practices in the industry.

About Frost & Sullivan

Zweispace Starts to Offer Industry Utility Tokens on Bitcoin (BSV), and Utility Token Exchange Platform, Starting From Real Estate and Legal Token for Inheritance Contract


TOKYO, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Zweispace, a blockchain powered PropTech company, located in Tokyo, Silicon Valley, and Singapore, holds multiple patents around blockchain, started to tokenize the industry specific app utility, starting from real estate and legal professions for inheritance contract. The tokens are on BitcoinSV blockchain.    

Zweispace started selling Zweicoin a real estate industry utility token in Japan, the coin can be consumed to run award winning PropTech apps. It can also be held as almost like stable token but most likely appreciating with more stuff coming in. PropTech apps includes, Robot Architect, "AutoCalc" a maximum profitable property planning with AI support, and Earthquake impact assessment app, "Namazu", developed with experts from a largest construction company. Zweispace is awarded the best PropTech company in 2019, expanding its domain to construction and finance.

Surplus of the money generated by selling Zweicoin is stored in a bank account in Japan, and part of the money will be converted to real estate. The ownership record and rental revenue history will be stored in its patented real estate blockchain system.

Zweispace also announced Zweinote, the real estate backed security type token with a licensed entity, starting from real estate in Tokyo.

Legal profession tokens will be consumable at inheritance advisory system, a legal tech system with expert knowledge for traditional contract generation with cutting edge smart smartcontract capability. Simultaneously,, a Japanese media about trust legal contract, opened, targeting 7 million elders in aging Japan with 13 trillion-dollar financial assets stored in banks with less than 0.1% interest rate.  Members can receive consultation from member lawyers before legal tech generates trust contract on backend system, along with alternative, next generation Inheritance Smart Contract. Practical smart contracts will be introduced to financial industry starting from Japan. This system with media site, will accelerate the contracting process, as Japanese government is encouraging regional banks to do so. This inheritance advisory system "Pitashin" was created wit! h the col laboration of Zweispace and Yasuhiro Ogino, a Shiho-shoshi (solicitor), the expert of inheritance contract and legal tech director at Trust System Security Association. The system is powered by Smart Contract System on ZWEICHAIN, a blockchain Zweispace provides. ZWEICHAIN means two chain in German, a pair of private chain and public chain. For the public chain, Zweispace picked BitcoinSV chain since 2019, the aggressively scaling original bitcoin protocol created and managed by nChain or Satoshi Nakamoto team. The "Legal Token" for this ecosystem, will be tokenized on BitcoinSV chain, same as Zweicoin on BitcoinSV. 

Namazu token is earthquake related tokens for the platform Zweispace forming with large construction companies with support from Japanese cabinet. Earthquake data from Zweispace sensor system will be recorded in its real estate blockchain. Zweispace partner companies and researchers can search and check the immutable records by using ZWC blockchain explorer. The public can check statistical sensor data in the public blockchain recorded by Zweispace system, using blockchain explorer from public internet. Zweispace expects amateur researchers to access the blockchain data with AI program to form prediction models in Japan. Japan has many amateur astronomers significantly contributing to global knowledge of astronomy. Zweispace hopes to encourage amateur planetary scientists, not just its world largest partner construction companies, to come up with AI assisted models to predict the impact of and to prepare fo! r the pot ential 14 trillion-dollar damage to the third largest economy by Nankai Trough earthquake.

Zweispace started to accept crypto for Zweicoin, starting from BitcoinSV, which Zweispace uses for its system. The conversion rate can be checked at a new utility token site. Zweicoin can be purchased on site and is in talks with multiple exchanges for trading including one already integrated.

Periscope By McKinsey Included in Independent Analyst Firm Report on Retail Planning Providers


NEW YORK and LONDON, Jan. 13, 2020 /PRNewswire/ -- Periscope® By McKinsey, which offers a suite of Marketing & Sales Analytics Solutions to help companies achieve sustainable revenue growth, today announced that it has been identified as a 'Large Vendor' and 'Specialist Solution' for Retail Planning in Forrester's 'Now Tech: Retail Planning, Q4 2019' report (December 24, 2019), by George Lawrie. The report provides an overview of 25 Retail Planning Providers to enable application development and delivery (AD&D) professionals to understand the value they can expect from a retail planning provider and select one based on size and functionality. 

According to the report; "You can use retail planning solutions to optimize assortments for each market segment and store cluster by segmenting markets and clustering stores with similar patterns of trade; to forecast and shape demand; and to pre-position fulfilment inventory…Retail planning applications help retailers to create compelling assortments with the right level of availability at prices that foster loyalty, stimulate repeat buying, and increase customer lifetime value."

The report also states that; "Specialist Solutions…help retail merchants, marketers, and supply chain professionals to plan assortments for each customer segment and store cluster and to plan the best pricing, promotions, and orders. By contrast, they provide limited support for pack size optimization, inventory allocation between channels and locations, and visualizing the financial impact of changes in planned assortment. They provide specialist capabilities to support "next best action" decisions around processes like in-season markdown or reallocation of inventory from one location to another."

Brian Elliott, Founder, Senior Advisor & Head of Innovation at Periscope By McKinsey, said; "In retail, it's not just about holding the winning cards, it's also about playing them well to both achieve and sustain revenue and margin growth. As a leader in this space, Periscope's comprehensive approach spans the entire transformation journey, from data management and insights generation to fact-based decision-making and capability building."
