    Ask.com Gives Seattle Residents What They Want With "You Asked, We Answered"Locals Vote on What They'd Most Like to See in Their City

    OAKLAND, Calif., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Ask.com, the number one online brand for questions and answers, today launched a Seattle-based campaign aimed at bringing more enjoyment to the everyday. Reflecting the top-of-mind themes for Seattleites[*], the campaign will invite residents to vote on which of three options they'd like to see happen in their city. Coined "You Asked, We Answered," the poll results will lay the groundwork for an exciting event in which Ask will reveal and respond to Seattle residents' most popular request.

    "We've shifted our marketing focus to a highly-targeted local strategy and Seattle continues to be a top market for us, especially when it comes to connectivity on mobile devices," said Valerie Combs, spokesperson at Ask.com. "We want to show the community a little love and while we can't permanently do away with those 520 bridge tolls or promise more sunshine, we can make their days a little easier."

    The campaign will run in multiple phases. First, Ask will poll residents in numerous ways: (1) in-person street teams engaging with residents in popular locations (2) a dedicated website, www.seattleasks.com, which provides more information and tallies votes (3) locals with iPhones can also vote by downloading Ask.com's recently-launched Pollroll app, a social polling app that allows users to send polls to friends and those nearby. Once downloaded, Seattle residents can click on the "Nearby" section for exclusive access to the "You Asked, We Answered" poll.

    Residents will be able to vote for whether they'd like Ask to:

    --  Ease The Morning Commute - Getting excited about an early morning drive
    to work can be a tough order in any city. But if locals say this is the
    issue they most want addressed, Ask will partner with local small-batch
    coffee roaster Caffe Vita to brighten up the post-Memorial Day commute
    with free coffee at various Park & Ride locations.
    --  Minimize Stadium Traffic - If gridlock at Safeco Field after a Mariners
    game is Seattle's headache, Ask may just have the solution. We can't
    guarantee a win, but we'll provide transportation home so fans can
    better enjoy their trip to the ball game.
    --  Save the Wading Pools - Budget cuts have forced the city to restrict
    hours of operation at Seattle's well-known wading pools and close down
    several of these historic landmarks altogether. If what Seattleites want
    most is to stay cool this summer, Ask will chip in the funds necessary
    to keep wading pools across the city open.
    

    The polling portion of the campaign will remain open for the next two weeks and results will be announced later this month. For more information, or to vote for what you'd most like to see Ask deliver Seattle, go to www.SeattleAsks.com or download Pollroll.

    Verizon Wireless Readies Its Resources To Support South Carolina Residents This Hurricane Season

    CHARLESTON, S.C., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With hurricane season just around the corner, Verizon Wireless has prepared its South Carolina network and emergency response teams to serve customers in the event of major storms and other emergencies. With year-round intensive investments and preparations, Verizon ensures customers can rely on the nation's largest wireless network to keep them connected during severe weather and throughout the year.

    "At Verizon, we understand the critical role a reliable wireless network plays in the event of a natural disaster or emergency that could affect many of our customers and communities," said Jerry Fountain, Verizon Wireless Carolinas/Tennessee region president. "We have extensive, behind-the-scenes emergency response plans to ensure that our customers feel secure and maintain maximum connectivity in unexpected situations."

    Verizon Wireless' ongoing investments and preparations have proven critical during emergency situations in previous years. The company guarantees its position as the nation's most reliable wireless network through several proactive initiatives including:

    --  Constructing new cell sites with on-site back-up power.
    --  Arranging Cells on Wheels (COWS), Cells on Light Trucks (COLTS), and
    generators on trailers (GOaTS) for immediate deployment to hard-hit
    locations or areas that need extra network capacity.
    --  Prearranging fuel delivery to mobile units and generators to keep the
    network operating at full strength even if power is lost.
    --  Ensuring residents of impacted areas can reach loved ones and start
    personal recovery by readying mobile stores and charging stations for
    deployment, as well as collaborating with local response agencies to
    prepare emergency equipment.
    

    These initiatives are part of a network investment exceeding $1 billion in South Carolina since the company formed in 2000, which includes launching the advanced 4G LTE network in the cities of Aiken, Charleston, Clemson, Columbia, Greenville, Hilton Head, North Augusta, Rock Hill and Spartanburg.

    In addition to extensive preparation efforts, Verizon Wireless offers several smartphone apps to help customers protect themselves and stay connected in the case of a storm or other crisis. Smartphones can be a valuable tool during or after severe weather events with apps allowing consumers to track storms, receive the latest weather forecasts and obtain severe weather alerts. Some of these apps include the Hurricane HD app, the ultimate hurricane tracking app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and the iMap Weather Radio app, a mobile radio service with the most recent weather information for iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

    Remote Patient Monitoring Service Connects Patients and Caregivers, Helps to Prevent Hospital StaysAT&T and VRI Offer Managed Service to Help Healthcare Providers and Payers Manage Chronic Diseases and Reduce Readmissions

    DALLAS, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Chronic conditions such as asthma, chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder, coronary heart disease, congestive heart failure and diabetes account for nearly 80 percent of physician visits, over 80 percent of hospital inpatient stays, over 90 percent of prescriptions, and over 95 percent of home healthcare visits.(1) Worse, patients recently hospitalized with one or more of these conditions are at significantly higher risk for readmission.

    To help healthcare providers and payers better address this problem, AT&T* has signed an agreement with Valued Relationships Inc. (VRI) to deliver a remote patient monitoring service to more effectively manage chronic diseases and help reduce hospital readmissions. The end-to-end managed service is scheduled to be available in the third quarter of 2012.

    The managed solution will allow a VRI nurse-staffed telemonitoring center to monitor patients around the clock for everything ranging from basic vital signs to chronic diseases, following standard of care guidelines established by physicians and healthcare providers. The intelligent service can alert caregivers when intervention is needed.

    Thanks to advances in technology and the solution announced today, caregivers can efficiently care for patients outside of the hospital walls. With the aging population, chronic diseases on the rise and a shortage of healthcare workers, remote patient monitoring solutions can help reduce the amount of time patients spend in hospitals by enabling caregivers to continuously monitor their health.

    "This innovative solution will connect providers to patients for monitoring and intervention. Patients will have peace of mind knowing their biometric data is being monitored for trending analyses, to improve outcomes and help prevent relapses," said Randall Porter, Assistant Vice President, AT&T ForHealth, AT&T Business and Home Solutions. "AT&T is providing multiple facets of this managed solution from wireless connectivity and sales and marketing support to device delivery and return."

    "AT&T and VRI have teamed up to make in-home remote patient monitoring simpler and more effective for healthcare organizations to deploy and scale. Providers and payers no longer have to finance, deploy, or monitor the alerts gathered by telehealth devices. Instead, within 48 hours of their patients being discharged from the hospital, these organizations receive actionable data that enables them to provide the care needed so that patients do not have to return to the hospital," said Andy Schoonover, CEO of VRI.

    Remote Patient Monitoring Service Key Facts:

    --  Healthcare providers and payers can provide a list of patients to AT&T,
    and VRI will equip, train, monitor and respond to alerts for one monthly
    price charged to the provider or payer.
    --  Device management and logistics including delivery of devices to the
    patient's home, collection of the devices when monitoring is completed
    and troubleshooting is provided as needed.
    --  24x7x365 support and monitoring of health and vitals data reported by
    the equipment installed in the patient's home.
    --  Daily adherence reminders as needed.
    --  Service captures data from wirelessly connected personal health devices
    such as blood pressure cuffs, weight scales and pulse oximeters and
    sends it over a highly-secure network to care representatives.
    --  On taking a reading, information is logged, and software analyzes if the
    reading requires intervention. If intervention is required, care
    representatives call the patient and follow patient notification triage
    processes to ensure the technology was working properly, that the
    patient used the technology according to proper clinical protocols, and
    that the patient's condition, if necessary, is addressed.
    --  Advanced analytics tools, reporting capabilities and professional
    services.
    

    Healthcare providers and payers can see a demonstration of the solution at booth #1328 at ATA 2012.

    Callaway Golf Balls Win Four Gold Medals On 2012 Golf Digest "Hot List"HEX Black Tour, HEX Chrome, HX Diablo Tour and HX Diablo Are Gold StandardHEX Chrome Dominates Competitive Field; Named "Category Leader" in Performance and Innovation

    CARLSBAD, Calif., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Buoyed by its new Tour-level offering, the HEX Black Tour(TM) golf ball, and the breakthrough technology of the HEX Chrome(TM) golf ball, Callaway Golf Company earned four Gold Medals in Golf Digest's 2012 Golf Ball "Hot List", which appears in the magazine's May issue. The Ball Hot List is a comprehensive evaluation of golf balls that combines input from scientists, manufacturers, robot testing and a panel of 20 player testers with a range of golf handicaps. This is the first time in the nine-year history of Golf Digest's Golf Ball "Hot List" that Callaway has won four Gold Medals. The Company's 2012 line of golf balls won Gold in all three categories: $38 and over (per dozen), $25-$36, and $20 and under.

    "It is extremely satisfying to be honored with four 'Hot List' Gold Medals from among our various Callaway golf ball offerings," said Steve Ogg, Vice President, Global Golf Ball Category, Callaway Golf. "It took a great deal of effort from our golf ball R&D and Operations teams to develop not only our new HEX Black Tour ball, but also the new HEX Chrome product. Our goal is to offer the best performing golf ball at every price point and we feel we have achieved that with these new golf balls and the rest of our 2012 offerings."

    Callaway, which earned more Gold and Silver Medals than any other manufacturer within the Equipment Hot List that Golf Digest released earlier this year, struck Gold with the HEX Black Tour golf ball, currently being played by Phil Mickelson, Ernie Els and a host of other elite professionals. This new five-piece offering earned a Gold Medal in the $38 and over category. Golf Digest awarded the HEX Black Tour 4 1/2 stars (out of five) for Performance, 4 1/2 stars for Innovation, and four stars for Feel. The HEX Black Tour is now available at retail for $46 per dozen.

    In Golf Digest 's $25-$36 category, Callaway's new HEX Chrome golf ball dominated the field, capturing "Category Leader" distinctions in both Performance and Innovation. The magazine wrote of the new three-piece ball: "In all the right ways, HEX Chrome is a tour ball. In one way, though, it thankfully isn't: price." The HEX Chrome, which features a softer core than the HEX Black Tour to deliver more ball speed for players that don't possess top-end swing speeds, is the best three-piece urethane ball Callaway has ever made. It was engineered for complete performance from tee to green, allowing golfers to take advantage of high spin around the greens and penetrating distance off the tee. The HEX Chrome is now available at retail for $36 per dozen.

    The HX Diablo Tour(TM), another three-piece offering that retails for $26 per dozen, earned a Gold Medal in the $25-$36 range for the second consecutive year. Golf Digest called the HX Diablo Tour, "A reliable performer on all swings, it gives what most golfers want from their tee shots; high launch and low spin, but with the added benefit of greenside control."

    In the $20 and under category, the two-piece Callaway HX Diablo(TM) earned Gold for the second consecutive year. Awarding it 4 1/2 stars for both Performance and Feel, Golf Digest called the HX Diablo "a distance ball with a soft feel that doesn't become mushy. That's no easy feat." The HX Diablo retails for $20 per dozen.

    Lockheed Martin's Shadow Hawk Munition Launched From Shadow UAS For The First Time

    ORLANDO, Fla., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Lockheed Martin successfully conducted the first launch of a Shadow Hawk precision-guided weapon recently from a Shadow 200 Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS), achieving a direct hit on the target.

    (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20120501/FL98147 )

    Shadow Hawk is an 11-pound class, 2.75-inch diameter, 27-inch long drop-glide weapon. It is terminally guided by a semi-active laser seeker, providing better than one meter precision. Shadow Hawk also provides an essential off-axis capability, enabling engagement of designated targets off the aircraft's wing.

    "As the mission of the Shadow UAS continues to evolve, it will need capability that can immediately neutralize threats detected and designated by the Shadow's sensor package, with minimum impact to the aircraft's endurance," said Glenn Kuller, director of advanced programs in Lockheed Martin's Missiles and Fire Control business. "With precision strike accuracy, the Shadow Hawk is an ideal solution in urban environments where low collateral damage is essential."

    The test was conducted at the UAS Rapid Integration and Acceptance Center, Dugway Proving Ground, Utah. The Shadow Hawk munition was released from an altitude of 5,100 feet and impacted the target at a speed of 460 feet per second. Shadow Hawk's sensor package, guidance electronics and control section successfully navigated the weapon to the target, hitting it just eight inches off the laser spot center. For this initial demonstration, the target was designated with a ground location laser designator.

    As a lightweight, compact and modular precision weapon, Shadow Hawk reliably delivers an effective and lethal anti-personnel warhead from UAS platforms with limited size and weight payload capacities. Its low weight enables the Shadow UAS to maintain longer time-on-station for performing critical reconnaissance, surveillance and target acquisition operations.

    "Equipped with Shadow Hawk and the UAS' electro-optical and infrared cameras, a Shadow UAS can now offer battlefield commanders timely detection of threat activities, including fleeting and time-sensitive threats, along with a quick-strike capability," Kuller said. "All of Shadow Hawk's seeker and guidance components are flight proven and production ready, having been developed and tested on other Lockheed Martin weapon systems."

    Headquartered in Bethesda, Md., Lockheed Martin is a global security and aerospace company that employs about 123,000 people worldwide and is principally engaged in the research, design, development, manufacture, integration and sustainment of advanced technology systems, products and services. The Corporation's net sales for 2011 were $46.5 billion.

    Thinkers Trump Technology for SABRE Top HonorsKetchum's Mindfire Wins 2012 PR Product of the Year

    NEW YORK, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Mindfire, an idea engine fueled by hundreds of imaginative university students from around the world, was just awarded the Silver SABRE Award for PR Product of the Year by the Holmes Group. The community of young thinkers, created by global public relations firm Ketchum, beat out several products that optimize digital influence in a year when social media tools seemed to reign supreme.

    Explained Paul Holmes, founder of the SABRE (Superior Achievement in Branding and Reputation) Awards, "It's important, amid all the excitement over the way technology has changed communication, to remember that social media consist of people. Technology may have opened up new digital channels for communications, but at the end of the day, those channels won't work unless people come up with compelling ideas that engage and influence other people. What Mindfire does is harness the power of people to generate great ideas."

    According to Karen Strauss, partner and chief innovation officer at Ketchum and a developer of Mindfire, "We have built a brainpower collective of students to provide our clients with original ideas that are unconstrained by the geographic and psychological boundaries that people close to a creative challenge sometimes face."

    Now in its second year of operation, Mindfire is a constantly changing online community of 400 students from 40 elite and diverse universities that include the Chinese University of Hong Kong, Celsa Universite de Paris, Yale University, Cornell University, Howard University and Leeds Metropolitan University in the U.K. Eager to give their students real-world work opportunities with large global companies, professors from these universities help recruit their most creative students to join Mindfire, and in exchange, students receive career coaching, training and job alerts from Ketchum, along with a prize provided by the client that issues each challenge.

    "Mindfire's success lies in the great feedback we receive from professors, students and clients," said Brian Keenan, who manages Mindfire for Ketchum. "Just last month, a Mindfire student came up with the winning name for client IKEA's "Bring Your Own Friends" initiative, a first-time event that was deemed a big success," he added.

    Richard Bailey, a senior lecturer in public relations at the Leeds Metropolitan University, said, "I am forever lecturing on the future, but Mindfire has brought the powerful example of crowdsourcing into the here and now."

    Mindfire is a free resource for Ketchum clients, and to ensure confidentiality, participating students sign a non-disclosure statement before joining the community. As an added incentive for student participation, every idea posted on Mindfire results in an agency donation to Room to Read, Ketchum's philanthropic partner, for the purchase of local language books for children in the developing world.

    The Silver SABRE Award will be officially presented at the annual North American SABRE Awards event in New York on May 8, for which Ketchum and its clients are finalists for 24 Diamond and Gold SABRE Awards, more than any other agency.

    About Mindfire

    The current list of participating universities includes: American University (U.S.); Universidad Argentina de la Empresa (Argentina); The Media School, Bournemouth University (U.K.); Boston University (U.S.); Celsa Universite de Paris-Sorbonne (France); Chapman University (U.S.); The Chinese University of Hong Kong; College of Charleston (U.S.); Cornell University (U.S.); DePaul University (U.S.); Duke University (U.S.); Elon University (U.S.); Georgia College & State University (U.S.); Georgetown University (U.S.); Howard University (U.S.); Iona College (U.S.); James Madison University (U.S.); John's Hopkins University (U.S.); Leeds Metropolitan University (U.K.); Louisiana State University (U.S.); Marist College (U.S.); Marquette University (U.S.); MGIMO University (Russia); Mudra Institute of Communications (India); Murray State University (U.S.); New York University (U.S.); Northwestern University (U.S.); Seton Hill University (U.S.); St. Louis University (U.S.); Symbiosis Institute of Media and Communication (India); Syracuse University's S.I.

    Verizon Wireless Readies Its Resources to Support North Carolina Residents This Hurricane Season

    WILMINGTON, N.C., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- With hurricane season just around the corner, Verizon Wireless has prepared its North Carolina network and emergency response teams to serve customers in the event of major storms and other emergencies. With year-round intensive investments and preparations, Verizon ensures customers can rely on the nation's largest wireless network to keep them connected during severe weather and throughout the year.

    "In the event of severe weather or an emergency, we want our customers and communities to feel secure and confident in our network's coverage and strength," said Jerry Fountain, Verizon Wireless Carolinas/Tennessee region president. "We have extensive, behind-the-scenes emergency response plans to ensure that our customers maintain maximum connectivity in unexpected situations."

    Verizon Wireless' ongoing investments and preparations have proven critical during emergency situations in previous years. The company guarantees its position as the nation's most reliable wireless network through several proactive initiatives including:

    --  Constructing new cell sites with on-site back-up power.
    --  Arranging Cells on Wheels (COWS), Cells on Light Trucks (COLTS), and
    generators on trailers (GOaTS) for immediate deployment to hard-hit
    locations or areas that need extra network capacity.
    --  Prearranging fuel delivery to mobile units and generators to keep the
    network operating at full strength even if power is lost.
    --  Ensuring residents of impacted areas can reach loved ones and start
    personal recovery by readying mobile stores and charging stations for
    deployment, as well as collaborating with local response agencies to
    prepare emergency equipment.
    

    These initiatives are part of a network investment exceeding $1.5 billion in North Carolina since the company formed in 2000, which includes launching the advanced 4G LTE network in the cities of Asheville, Charlotte, Durham, Fayetteville, Greensboro, Greenville, High Point, Lumberton, Raleigh, Washington, Wilmington, and Winston-Salem.

    In addition to extensive preparation efforts, Verizon Wireless offers several smartphone apps to help customers protect themselves and stay connected in the case of a storm or other crisis. Smartphones can be a valuable tool during or after severe weather events with apps allowing consumers to track storms, receive the latest weather forecasts and obtain severe weather alerts. Some of these apps include the Hurricane HD app, the ultimate hurricane tracking app for iPhone, iPad and iPod touch, and the iMap Weather Radio app, a mobile radio service with the most recent weather information for iPad, iPhone and Android devices.

    About Verizon Wireless
    Verizon Wireless operates the nation's largest 4G LTE network and largest, most reliable 3G network. The company serves 93.0 million retail customers, including 88.0 million retail postpaid customers.

    PLYMOUTH, Mich., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Comcast today announced the launch of Xfinity(R) Home across the company's service area in Michigan. Xfinity Home offers traditional home security components, such as police and fire alarm protection backed by 24/7 professional monitoring, as well as the ability to remotely adjust digital thermostats, turn lights on or off and watch secure, live streaming video from wireless cameras while away from home. The service also comes with the Xfinity Home app, which is available for free on Apple's iTunes App Store(R) and Google Play for Android(TM).

In addition, the service comes with a tablet-like touch screen with a menu of widgets that allow access to the latest weather, news, traffic, and sports scores.

    In addition to 24/7 professional monitoring, Xfinity Home offers customers with the ability to:

    --  watch live streaming video of their home through wireless cameras;
    --  access security controls remotely via Web portal or the Xfinity Home
    app;
    --  manage home utilities, like digital thermostats and lights;
    --  have peace of mind since both battery and cellular backup helps ensure
    customers remain fully protected even in the event of a power outage.
    

    "It's exciting to rollout Xfinity Home to Michigan consumers, a new product line that complements our current video, high-speed internet and digital phone offerings," said Tim Collins, regional vice president of Comcast's Heartland Region. "This state-of-the-art product leverages the power and flexibility of our fiber optic broadband network to bring a whole new level of innovation, choice and value to our customers."

    Today, Comcast is selling the Xfinity Home Preferred Package for as low as $39.95 per month. Xfinity Home customers may also be eligible to receive up to a 20 percent discount on their homeowners' insurance.

    HSN Cares Supports The March Of Dimes As The Official Partner Of Mother's And Father's Day

    100% Of Donations Collected by HSN Cares from Mother's Day through Father's Day Will Benefit The March of Dimes

    ST. PETERSBURG, Fla., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- HSN, the leading interactive multichannel retailer, announces today that, through the company's philanthropic arm HSN Cares, it has partnered with the March of Dimes, as the "Official Partner of Mother's Day and Father's Day(SM)". HSN is proud to be one of the first retailers to support the March of Dimes' new marketing campaign titled imbornto which recognizes that every baby is "born to do something great." This commitment reinforces HSN Cares' overall mission to raise awareness and funds for trusted organizations helping women and families in need.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20070214/CLW048LOGO-b )

    Throughout the Mother's Day and Father's Day holiday season (April 28 - June 17) HSN customers will be able to donate to the imbornto campaign anywhere or anytime they want to shop, through all of HSN's channels, on-air, online and via mobile and SMS text. Donations of $1, $5, $10 or $25 can be added to any purchase with 100% of the donations benefitting the March of Dimes, going toward improving the health of babies by preventing birth defects, premature birth and infant mortality.

    "We are very proud to be partnering with the March of Dimes to support and promote such an important campaign, and to raise funds that will help mothers and fathers everywhere," said Bill Brand, Executive Vice President of Programming, Marketing and Business Development for HSN.

    HSN employees had the opportunity to participate in the March for Babies over the past weekend; a three mile walk through Safety Harbor, Florida, which raised funds to support research and programs that help moms have full-term pregnancies and babies begin healthy lives. HSN was recognized for their support prior to the official campaign kick-off when they received the Retailer of the Year Award at the 37th annual March of Dimes Beauty Ball for innovative leadership this past March.

    "We are truly excited about the new campaign as well as the support of HSN - an amazing company, committed to children and families," said Chad Royal-Pascoe, Vice President of National Strategic Alliances and Cause Marketing. "Through imbornto, we will make more consumers aware of the role that March of Dimes has played in maternal and infant health. HSN's overwhelming support will play an integral part in the launch and success of this year's campaign."

    On May 1st, HSN will feature the Hoffman Family from Weston, FL., during HSN Today, the network's block of morning programming. Joshua Hoffman, the 2010 March of Dimes National Ambassador, was born four months early and spent three and a half months in newborn intensive care. The Hoffman family credits the research and treatments funded by March of Dimes with helping Joshua overcome his premature birth; he is now a happy and healthy nine year-old. In 2004, Josh's younger brother Alex, was born nearly full term and healthy, thanks in part to information provided by the March of Dimes.

    Guitammer Secures Third Theater Installation In China For ButtKicker(R) Technology At Lumiere Pavilions Facility- 100 Auditorium Seats and Featured VIP Section at Beijing Multiplex to be Enabled with "4D" Entertainment Experience Reflecting Growing Relationship with China's Leading Luxury Cinema Operator -

    WESTERVILLE, Ohio, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- The Guitammer Company , a leader in low frequency sound and creator of the award-winning line of ButtKicker(R)-brand low frequency audio transducers that provide an immersive entertainment experience for audiences, announced today that it has secured a third theater installation with Sichuan Lumiere Cinema Co. Ltd. (Lumiere Pavilions) of Beijing, China. The new installation will include all 100 seats and a special VIP seating area in one of five auditoriums at Lumiere Pavilions' five screen multiplex in Beijing, in the core area of Fangcaodi, the second circle of Beijing. The agreement follows earlier agreements for Lumiere Pavilions' theaters in Nanjing in 2011 and in Shenyang, North China (scheduled to open this summer). With the installation at the Beijing theater later this year, Lumiere Pavilions will feature over 400 seats in three auditoriums which offer Guitammer's ButtKicker "4D" experience.

    ButtKicker-enhanced entertainment experiences are featured in movie theaters, simulation rides, dance floors, planetariums, science centers, amusement parks and attractions all over the world, including on over 9,000 seats at more than 80 screens in 11 countries. Audiences at these facilities experience first-hand the excitement, impacts, special effects and bone-rattling bass which contribute to ButtKicker's proprietary "4D" immersive entertainment experience.

    Jimmy Wu, founder and CEO of Lumiere Pavilions, commented, "Following a careful evaluation of many products that purport to deliver a '4D' entertainment experience, it was evident that the ButtKicker solution offered far and away the most comprehensive and fully immersive experience for our guests. The success of our first installation of ButtKicker products at our theater in Nanjing confirms that audiences are thrilled with this new, engaging entertainment experience. We're pleased to be adding ButtKicker in our Beijing theater, as well as the near-term rollout of the product at our Sheyang theater, as we're confident that guest experiences at these facilities will match the tremendous response we have received from current installations.

    "The accurate and realistic ButtKicker '4D' effect is an excellent complement to the quality theater offerings we provide our guests, and we believe there is a near-term opportunity to expand the number of our seats that feature this experience. We are also evaluating other areas of our theaters that can be enhanced with the ButtKicker sensory effect and are beginning to explore opportunities to work with Guitammer to bring the ButtKicker experience into our theater guests' homes with the wireless ButtKicker Kit consumer product."

    Mark Luden, CEO of Guitammer, stated, "We are delighted to further expand our relationship with Mr. Wu and his exceptional organization as we share their commitment to deliver innovative cinema experiences in luxurious surroundings. Lumiere Pavilions consistently sets the bar higher to deliver a highly realistic and engaging experience for its guests, and we look forward to working closely to further evolve our relationship from that of vendor, to valued partner in the growing Chinese theater and home theater markets."

    NI Technology Previews Earnings for Broadcom, Cavium, Flextronics, FormFactor, and Acme Packet

    PRINCETON, N.J., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Next Inning Technology Research (http://www.nextinning.com), an online investment newsletter focused on semiconductor and technology stocks, has published updated outlooks for Broadcom , Cavium , Flextronics , FormFactor , and Acme Packet .

    Editor Paul McWilliams spent a decades-long career in the technology industry, and has earned a reputation for his skill at communicating complex technology trends to individual investors and professional analysts alike. His reports have won over readers with their ability to unravel the complexities of the industry and, more importantly, identify which companies are likely to be the winners and losers as technology trends change.

    Next Inning is now publishing its highly acclaimed earnings previews. These in-depth previews give investors the insights they need to identify tech winners and losers before they issue their quarterly earnings reports. McWilliams' earnings previews, available free to trial subscribers, will cover dozens of tech companies throughout the earnings season.

    https://www.nextinning.com/subscribe/index.php?refer=prn1405

    McWilliams covers these topics and more in his latest reports:

    -- Broadcom: With the price of Broadcom up sharply from where McWilliams thought it was a good buy last fall in the $20s, should investors plan on holding shares through its upcoming quarterly report? What will Broadcom's balance sheet look like with the NetLogic acquisition now completed? Would McWilliams buy, sell or hold today?

    -- Cavium: What factors are behind Cavium's success in building strong design momentum? Is there a way to quantify Cavium's design base and explain why it is taking so long to produce revenue? Should investors be concerned that Wall Street's patience with Cavium is wearing thin? Is Cavium trading at a bargain price ahead of its upcoming earnings report?

    -- Flextronics: What are the challenges facing Flextronics today? Is Flextronics well-positioned to meet McWilliams' profitability goals for its fiscal year ending March 2013? What is McWilliams' estimated fair value range for Flextronics and how much upside does it represent from current prices? Does Flextronics merit consideration as a strategic investment or should investors view is as more of a short-term speculation?

    -- FormFactor: After suggesting it was time to sell FormFactor last year when it was trading above $11, McWilliams suggested buying at $4.69 last December in anticipation of a quick pop into the high $5s. With that objective realized, does McWilliams think there's reason to hold out for more or just move on? Does a legacy of mismanagement at FormFactor mean the best option for the company now is to look for a buyer? How much of a premium would investors likely receive from a buyout offer?

    -- Acme Packet: Was Acme overly conservative when it issued guidance during its last earnings report, suggesting the company may be poised to report "surprise" upside when it reports earnings this week? Does McWilliams expect that Acme shares could move solidly above $30 in the near term?

    Founded in September 2002, Next Inning's model portfolio has returned 292% since its inception versus 55% for the S&P 500.

    Star Entertainment's Tranzistor Systems Releases Beta App to 103 million Potential Monthly Users

    FORT LAUDERDALE, Fla., May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- Star Entertainment Group, Inc. announced today that Tranzistor Systems released its BETA Tranzistor Radio application to the Android Market and will soon have its iPhone app in the Apple Store pending Apple's final review of the technology.

    Internet radio is seeing explosive growth. According to just-released survey data from Edison Research and Arbitron, 103 million Americans are now accessing online radio in some form, in any month.

    The Company previously announced the signing of a Letter of Intent to acquire Tranzistor Systems Inc., a company engaged in mobile music entertainment products and services including internet radio, fan applications, and eCommerce products.

    Tranzistor's product and technology have been assessed in excess of $10 million and additionally have a number of products and services under development. The Company projects Tranzistor annual revenues to reach $87.6 million by 2014 and in excess of $231 million by 2016, as Tranzistor's service set expands internationally.

    Tranzistor Systems offers a difference in internet radio through its programmed approach and will shortly begin the rollout of its network and stations. Upon full rollout, Tranzistor Radio will offer many options in programming from country, cooking, rock, alternative, and many more. Tranzistor Radio will also be Bluetooth-compliant and be automotive-ready.

    The radio application will be ad-supported as well as offer a premium subscription. With 40 percent of the US population 12 or over, and a large and growing population of Americans now listening to internet radio, management estimates a strong growth pattern in both advertising/sponsorship dollars as well as subscriptions as a result of Tranzistor Only content. The BETA Tranzistor Radio application can be downloaded at http://tranzistorradio.com

    "The leap in online radio usage is significant, but really a trailing number to the rise in smartphone penetration, which has enabled much of that growth," said Josh Eikov, CEO of Tranzistor Systems Inc. "The increasing use-anywhere ability of the mobile web is profoundly changing the quantity, nature and context of media consumption in America. It takes time to make a network worthy of consumer usage and we are looking forward to the future."

    The Company is currently completing its due diligence regarding the previously announced LOI to acquire Tranzistor Systems, Inc. in a transaction to be valued in excess of $10,000,000. The preferred share acquisition is anticipated to close shortly and will coincide with a complete change of operational focus and an entire replacement of management, including officers and directors.

    Additionally, the Company has commenced preparation of disclosure and financial information required by the OTC Disclosure Service and expects its trading status upgrade to "Current Information" in a timely fashion.

    FICO Solution Improves Profitability and Limits Merchant-Related Risk for Banks and AcquirersFICO Merchant Monitoring Solution can help quickly identify and understand the full spectrum of merchant fraud and risk

    MINNEAPOLIS, May 1, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- FICO , the leading provider of analytics and decision management technology, today unveiled FICO(R) Merchant Monitoring Solution, the fraud and risk management solution for merchant acquirers, those companies that process card transactions for merchants by enabling the necessary connections between the merchants, the card associations, and the issuing banks. The solution identifies fraud, financial, and compliance risk using powerful rules management and analytics, and gives acquirers advanced case management to investigate suspicious activity.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20111010/CG83314LOGO)

    Merchant acquirers manage card authorizations for merchants, pay issuer fees on their behalf, and act as an intermediary between merchants and card issuers. In doing so, they take on risks associated with transactions until the transactions are final. This includes the risk that retailers are failing to comply with payment card association rules, and the risk of transaction fraud. The risks for acquirers are growing in the current economic environment, and changes in both the association rules and payment card regulatory frameworks introduce new dynamics to the acquiring landscape.

    FICO Merchant Monitoring Solution helps merchant acquirers avoid losses from merchants in the form of card fraud and collusion, and identifies the possibility of financial compliance failure. In addition, FICO Merchant Monitoring Solution helps merchant acquirers prepare for the possibility that smaller merchants may declare bankruptcy or experience other unexpected financial events. By implementing FICO Merchant Monitoring Solution, acquirers can more profitably manage merchant relationships and mitigate known as well as emerging risks.

    FICO Merchant Monitoring Solution is based on four components - the award-winning FICO(R) Blaze Advisor(R) business rules management system, case management, predictive analytics, and expert guidance from FICO Professional Services consultants. FICO Blaze Advisor enables acquirers to automatically process and send suspicious transactions to the case manager for prioritizing and review. Business users can easily create and modify rules without relying on IT.

    Acquirers can define their own metrics for daily calculations such as total sales and historical performance. Transaction settlement details are automatically captured each day. Customizable analytics add sophistication in high-risk situations, such as when working with a new merchant.

    "Through our experience over the last 20 years with card fraud, we have built an ideal solution for this segment of the market," said Doug Clare, vice president, fraud solutions at FICO. "Both merchants and acquirers will benefit from a better monitoring system, which protects all parties from fraud and improves compliance with industry rules."

    "On a daily basis, the worldwide potential for fraudulent payment transactions is staggering," said David Fish, senior analyst, Mercator Advisory Group. "The merchant acquiring marketplace has long needed anti-fraud solutions like FICO Merchant Monitoring, so that merchant acquirers can identify and manage fraud proactively, the day it happens, without adversely impacting legitimate transactions."

    About FICO

    FICO delivers superior predictive analytics solutions that drive smarter decisions. The company's groundbreaking use of mathematics to predict consumer behavior has transformed entire industries and revolutionized the way risk is managed and products are marketed. FICO's innovative solutions include the FICO(R) Score -- the standard measure of consumer credit risk in the United States -- along with industry-leading solutions for managing credit accounts, identifying and minimizing the impact of fraud, and customizing consumer offers with pinpoint accuracy.
