    In addition, Kirk has significant experience in communications and journalism. A former news reporter, she has received writing awards from The Associated Press and the Chairman's Award from the New York Times for news reporting.

    Kirk, who earned her Bachelor of Science degree from Arkansas State University, is a member of the university's Advisory Board for the College of Communications. Additionally, she is a member of the national service organization, Jack and Jill of America, where she has chaired various committees. Kirk also has spent more than 30 years working with organizations in Alabama, Missouri and Texas on the prevention of domestic violence and currently chairs the Board of Directors for the National Domestic Violence Hotline.

In 2009, the Verizon Foundation awarded $67.9 million in grants to nonprofit agencies in the U.S. and abroad. It also matched the charitable donations of Verizon employees and retirees, resulting in $26.1 million in combined contributions to nonprofits.

    CONFLUENCE, Pa., Jan. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- To continue to stay ahead of rising demand for wireless voice, 3G multimedia and Internet access, Verizon Wireless has expanded its local network in Confluence, along the border of Fayette and Somerset counties.

    Consumer Advantages

    The new cell site provides increased wireless voice and 3G data in Confluence and the surrounding area, including a section of State Route 281 on the south side of town and the northern portion of Youghiogheny River Lake.

    Expanded 3G data capacity in Confluence enables more customers using notebook computers or smartphones to:

    --  Download and use cool apps, from mobile social networking platforms to
    GPS-enabled maps;
    --  Rapidly browse the Web to keep up with news, sports, stock quotes,
    Hollywood gossip and more;

    attachments;
    --  Download and play vivid 3D games, and;
    --  Stream must-see video and customized radio stations.
    

    "People across Pennsylvania are increasingly relying on smartphones and 3G applications to manage their busy lives and stay connected at home or on-the-go," said Mark Frazier, president-Ohio/Pennsylvania/West Virginia Region, Verizon Wireless. "The nearly $1.2 billion we've invested into our Pennsylvania network has kept us ahead of consumer trends, provided our customers a 3G advantage and underscored our belief that any mobile device is only as good as the network it runs on. Proactive and sustained investment has made Verizon Wireless the 3G leader in Pennsylvania and nationwide."

    Verizon Wireless' 3G network powers many leading mobile multimedia services, including:

    --  Mobile Broadband Internet Access: Notebook computer users can access
    e-mail, download files and browse the Internet at broadband speed,
    downloading a one megabyte e-mail attachment - the equivalent of a small
    PowerPoint(R) presentation or a large PDF file - in about eight seconds
    and uploading it in less than 13 seconds.
    --  V CAST Video: V CAST multimedia services offer customers the ability to
    play cutting-edge 3D games and stream video clips straight to their
    phones, as well as to watch dozens of on-demand videos, including

    clips.
    

    Sustained Wireless Investment

    The company has invested more than $60 billion since its inception to increase the wireless voice and data coverage of its national network and to add 3G services like Mobile Broadband and V CAST. As the carrier with America's largest and most reliable wireless network, Verizon Wireless cell sites in Pennsylvania provide 3G wireless data connectivity.

    Engineering America's Most Reliable Wireless Network

    The company's 'America's most reliable wireless network' reputation is based on network studies performed by test men and test women throughout the country. By traversing more than one million miles annually on Interstates, U.S. and state highways, as well as major roads and surface streets in high-population areas-the equivalent of two roundtrips to the moon or 40 trips around the world-the test men and women confirm that voice calls and data connections are successful on the first attempt and stay connected. Vehicles are equipped with computers that automatically make more than 3.5 million voice call attempts and more than 19 million data tests annually on Verizon Wireless' network and the networks of other carriers.

    Pratt & Whitney's Short Take Off/Vertical Landing Variant F135 Engine Receives Initial Service Release

    EAST HARTFORD, Conn., Jan. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Pratt & Whitney, a United Technologies Corp. company, has achieved initial service release (ISR) for the short take off and vertical landing variant (STOVL) F135 engine, marking another major milestone. The propulsion system is now certified as the production configuration and cleared for flight in the Lockheed Martin F-35B stealth fighter. Pratt & Whitney received ISR for the conventional take off and landing/carrier variant (CTOL/CV) F135 engine in February 2010.

    "Achieving initial service release for the STOVL propulsion system means all three variants of the F135 engine have met all necessary requirements and proven the safety, reliability and performance of this product. We are one step closer to powering operational flights," said Bennett Croswell, vice president of F135/F119 Engine Programs, Pratt & Whitney. "I am proud of the F135 STOVL team and our partners at Rolls-Royce, Hamilton Sundstrand and Lockheed Martin for this great program accomplishment. We look forward to seeing the F135-powered Lightning II in operational flight."

    The F135 is in production and is the only engine powering the F-35 Lightning II flight test program today. The F135 CTOL/CV engine and STOVL propulsion system continues to power the F-35 Lightning II with 540 flight tests and more than 750 flight test hours. The F135 has powered all 12 vertical landings and the F135 engine is demonstrating excellent reliability, performance and thrust response. To date, Pratt & Whitney has delivered 12 production F135 engines, including the first two production STOVL propulsion systems.

    Pratt & Whitney has designed, developed and tested the F135 to deliver the most advanced fifth generation fighter engine for the United States and its allies around the world. The F135 has been further enhanced with technologies developed in several U.S. Air Force and Navy technology programs.

    Pratt & Whitney is a world leader in the design, manufacture and service of aircraft engines, space propulsion systems and industrial gas turbines. United Technologies, based in Hartford, Conn., is a diversified company providing high technology products and services to the global aerospace and building industries.

    This press release contains forward-looking statements concerning future business opportunities and operational engine performance. Actual results may differ materially from those projected as a result of certain risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to changes in funding related to the F-35 aircraft and F135 engines, changes in government procurement priorities and practices or in the number of aircraft to be built; challenges in the design, development, production and support of advanced technologies; as well as other risks and uncertainties, including but not limited to those detailed from time to time in United Technologies Corp.'s Securities and Exchange Commission filings.

    Zacks Analyst Blog Highlights: Oracle, International Business Machines, EMC, Hewlett-Packard and Honda Motor

    CHICAGO, Jan. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Zacks.com Analyst Blog features: Oracle Corp. , International Business Machines Corp. , EMC Corp. , Hewlett-Packard Company and Honda Motor Co. .

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20101027/ZIRLOGO)

    Get the most recent insight from Zacks Equity Research with the free Profit from the Pros newsletter: http://at.zacks.com/?id=4579

    Here are highlights from Friday's Analyst Blog:

    Earnings Scorecard: Oracle

    Software giant Oracle Corp. reported better-than-expected second quarter 2011 results with both earnings and revenues easily beating the Zacks Consensus Estimates. The results were driven by strong new software license sales (sales to new customers) and growth in hardware sales, boosted by the acquisition of Sun Microsystems.

    Third quarter 2011 outlook was also above the Zacks Consensus Estimate, leading to a substantial rise in analysts' estimates for the third quarter and full years 2011 and 2012.

    Detailed below is the recent earnings announcement, subsequent analysts' estimate revisions and the Zacks Rank as well as the long-term recommendation for the stock.

    Second Quarter Earnings Highlight

    Total revenue, growth in new licensing revenues and earnings per share (EPS) were encouraging and remained well above management's expectations.

    Earnings (excluding one-time items but including stock-based compensation expenses) of 49 cents per share shot up 32.4% from 37 cents in the year-ago period, and surpassed the Zacks Consensus Estimate of 44 cents. The rise in earnings was attributable to higher revenues from new software license sales, which grew for the fifth consecutive quarter.

    Second quarter total revenue increased 47.0% year over year to $8.58 billion, driven by better-than-expected new software license revenues. Non-GAAP revenues leaped 47.3% year over year to $8.65 billion. Revenues were also above the Zacks Consensus Estimate of $8.30 billion.

    New software license revenues (23.1% of total revenue and 35.3% of total software revenue), shot up 20.9% to $2.00 billion and were better than the company's expectation. Revenues from hardware systems products were $1.11 billion, in line with the company's expectation.

    Agreement of Estimate Revisions

    Clearly, a positive sentiment is palpable among the analysts, who remain optimistic about Oracle's performance. Given impressive results and a robust guidance, the Zacks Consensus Estimates have been upward bound with the analysts increasing their estimates in the last 30 days.

    In the last 30 days, 13 out of 15 analysts providing estimates raised their estimates for third quarter 2011. For fiscal 2011 and 2012, 15 analysts and 14 analysts, respectively, have raised their estimates in the last 30 days. There was no downward estimate revision, which points to the fact that analysts remain extremely bullish on the stock.

    Magnitude of Estimate Revisions

    Management provided a robust third quarter guidance. Total revenue growth on a non-GAAP basis is expected to range from 31% to 35% at current exchange rate and 30% to 34% in constant currency. New software license revenue growth is expected to range from 10% to 20% at current exchange rate and 9% to 19% in constant currency.

    For the third quarter, Oracle expects non-GAAP EPS in constant currency to range between 48 cents and 50 cents. Assuming the current exchange, EPS is expected to range between 48 cents and 50 cents. This is up from 38 cents reported in the comparable quarter last year.

    In the last 30 days, the Zacks Consensus Estimate for third quarter 2011 increased by 3 cents to 47 cents. For fiscal 2011, estimates rose by 10 cents to $2.00 and for fiscal 2012 the estimate increased 11 cents to $2.23.

    Oracle a Zacks #2 Rank Stock

    Oracle's results indicate increased business spending by corporations. They also show that the demand for software is pacing up. With an increase in the number of upward estimate revisions, following the earnings release, we believe that the share price could go up. Oracle is currently rated as a Zacks #2 Rank (short-term Buy).

    We also remain positive on Oracle's growing Exadata pipeline, despite intense competition from International Business Machines Corp. and EMC Corp. . Management expects the Exadata pipeline to grow to $2 billion, up from the previous expectation of $1.5 billion. We believe this will speed up both sales growth and profitability in the Sun server and storage businesses.

    With Sun, Oracle will likely emerge as the foremost player in the database software market, including high-end servers, and compete against Hewlett-Packard Company , a behemoth in the industry.

    Over the long term, we maintain our Neutral rating on the stock. We are positive on the company's longer-term growth prospects based on its growing market share, new product pipeline, incremental cost savings, robust cash flow, improved margin and high recurring revenues.

    Honda to Recall Snow Blowers

    Honda Motor Co. announced that it will recall 18,500 snow blowers in order to repair their fuel-tank that seep or leak fuel, leading to fire. The company has received 90 complaints of fuel seepage. However, no fire accidents have been reported yet.

    The blowers were sold across the U.S. through Honda Power Equipment dealers from April 2005 till November 2010 for about $2,000 to $3,400. The company has advised its customers to stop using the snow blowers immediately and bring them to a dealer for a free fuel tank joint and o-ring replacement.

    Few days back, Honda recalled 10,800 units of Accord sedans and Pilot sport utility vehicles (SUVs) in order to fix a problem with the front suspension of the vehicles. The recall includes Accord sedans of model year 2010-2011 and Pilot SUVs of 2011, sold in the U.S.

    Honda revealed that the vehicles have problems in the machinery used for tightening the spindle nuts on the front axles due to flawed software. It could lead to failure of the front suspension in the vehicles.

    Since the beginning of the year, Honda has recalled more than 1 million vehicles due to problems related to air bag inflators and faulty ignition systems. The recalled line-ups include Accord, Civic, Odyssey, CR-V, Pilot, Acura TL and Acura CL in the U.S. as well as the Inspire, Saber and Lagreat in Japan.

    Registration Open for Hospitals and Physician Groups Ready to Attest to Meaningful UseSiemens applauds the pioneering early adopters who are ready to acknowledge their commitment to the betterment of patient care through the use of health information technology.

    MALVERN, Pa., Jan. 3, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Today represents a major step in the health information technology (IT) landscape. More than two years of policymaking have culminated in the opening of registration so hospitals and physician groups can begin the process of attesting to Stage 1 Meaningful Use as part of the Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services (CMS) Medicare Electronic Health Record (EHR) Incentive Program. The Medicare EHR Incentive Program will provide incentive payments to eligible professionals, hospitals and critical access hospitals that demonstrate Meaningful Use of certified EHR technology.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20070904/SIEMENSLOGO )

    "Demonstrating Meaningful Use is an important milestone in the path to delivering truly exceptional patient care," said John Glaser, Chief Executive Officer of the Health Services Business Unit of Siemens Healthcare. "Siemens has made a significant investment in helping to prepare our customers for Meaningful Use, and we are extremely proud of not only our customers who are ready to attest in 2011, but also all those pioneering healthcare providers that will lead the way for others in this pivotal first year."

    Achieving Stage 1 Meaningful Use involves demonstrating the capability to meet many complex criteria. One of the primary components is the use of computerized physician order entry (CPOE) systems for 30% of medication orders. CPOE is one of the most important processes in an inpatient setting and it can drive both the quality and efficiency of care. With a national focus on increasing the rapidity of clinical decision making, while reducing the potential for errors, CPOE systems can improve the ordering process for physicians and other clinicians. The hospitals and physician groups who will begin attesting to Meaningful Use represent those who are on the forefront of bringing this empowering technology to patients. According to third quarter 2010 statistics of the EMR Adoption Model (EMRAM) from HIMSS Analytics, only 17.8% of U.S. hospitals and health systems have adopted CPOE.(1)

    "In the month of January, there will be a significant focus placed on the entities that are registering for the program and starting their EHR reporting period, but ultimately, all providers treating patients covered by Medicare will need to register," said Glaser. "It is important to note that this process is still new and, in many cases, it will be months before CMS determinations of actual Meaningful Users are revealed and facilities begin to see incentive payments. No matter what the outcome, we applaud those who are willing to publicly acknowledge their commitment to the betterment of patient care through their innovative use of health IT."

    Siemens offers a wide range of clinical and financial solutions across the entire health IT portfolio that can help enable customers to begin their process of achieving Meaningful Use. Recently, Siemens announced that it had received certification for three complete and six modular EHR solutions. More details about Siemens certified products are available at: http://usa.siemens.com/ARRA-HITECH.
