    Mobile Check-in for Mobile Travelers - Marriott Hotels Offers Smartphone Users Convenient, Easier, Faster Check-inTo be Rolled Out at 325 Hotels in the U.S. and Canada - Broadest in the Industry

    BETHESDA, Md., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- In recognition of its increasingly connected mobile guests, Marriott Hotels, the signature brand of Marriott International , is announcing plans to rollout mobile check-in at 325 hotels in the U.S. and Canada. Now launched at 31 Marriott-brand hotels, mobile check-in will expand to all 325 Marriott-brand hotels later this summer. This will represent the broadest mobile offering of its kind in the U.S. and Canada. According to the consulting firm Hudson Crossing, emerging Gen Y travelers (ages 24 - 36) in the U.S. lead all other age groups in smartphone ownership at 80 percent and travelers in general are more likely to own mobile devices.

    (Photo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20130701/PH40714 )

    With the Marriott Mobile App, check-in is simple. All Marriott Rewards members can check-in after 4 pm the day before their arrival and will receive an automatic notification when their room is ready. Because credit card information is stored within their Marriott Rewards profiles, members simply walk up to the expedited mobile check-in desk where their pre-programmed key card will be waiting for them. The mobile check-in feature is part of the free Marriott mobile app available in the Apple iTunes Store and Google Play. Learn more about mobile check-in at http://travel-brilliantly.marriott.com/our-innovations/check-in-app.

    "As Marriott developed the app and tested mobile check-in, we engaged customers, asking for their feedback to perfect the experience and learn what mattered most to them," said Paul Cahill, senior vice president of brand management for Marriott Hotels. "Our frequent guests told us they wanted mobile check-in first, using their smartphones, to be widely available. That is what we are delivering as Marriott Hotels continues its journey of envisioning the future of travel for the next generation."

    The Marriott Mobile App will not stop at check-in. Future innovations are currently being tested at Marriott's "mobile incubator" hotels, including checkout and guest service requests. As the brand rapidly grows internationally, Marriott also plans to expand mobile guest services outside the U.S. and Canada.

    Guests of Marriott Hotels effortlessly blend work and play in a mobile and global world. They seek style and substance, and consider technology to be a central part of their lifestyle. Marriott Hotels, which recently launched its Travel Brilliantly campaign, is committed to introducing innovations that will enable the next generation to travel brilliantly. The campaign engages guests to join with the brand in its journey to co-create the future of travel together. View current Marriott innovations and submit your own ideas at www.travelbrilliantly.com.

    Mobile check-in joins a list of innovations from Marriott Hotels. These include lobby Greatrooms that create a seamless experience merging modern, stylish design and comfort, with greater access to food and beverage, and technology where guests are welcomed to relax, recharge or chill. Inspired by people, Marriott is imagining the future of meetings with concepts such as Workspring at Marriott, catering to smaller meetings, Workspace on Demand that makes it as easy to book workspace as a hotel room, and the Red Coat Direct app which enables meeting organizers to adjust and edit their meeting requests and preferences with the touch of a button and without ever leaving the meeting room.

    About Marriott Hotels?
    With 500 hotels and resorts in nearly 60 countries around the world, Marriott Hotels is evolving travel through every aspect of the guest's stay, enabling the next generation to Travel Brilliantly. Boldly transforming itself for mobile and global travelers who blend work and play, Marriott leads the industry with innovations, including the Greatroom, Future of Meetings and Mobile Guest Services that elevates style & design and technology.

    ORS-1 Satellite Completes Second Year in Space

    CHARLOTTE, N.C., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- UTC Aerospace Systems announced today that the ORS-1 satellite has celebrated its second anniversary in space. ORS-1, the first Operationally Responsive Space satellite specifically designed to support combatant command operations was launched from Wallops Island Flight Facility aboard a Minotaur I launch vehicle on June 29, 2011, at 11:09 p.m. EDT. UTC Aerospace Systems is a unit of United Technologies Corp. .

    "The ORS-1 satellite has been meeting or exceeding expectations since its launch and continues to provide daily support to US Central Command and to those tasked to protect our troops and efforts overseas," said Andreas Nonnenmacher, general manager, ISR Systems. "This anniversary marks the satellite's second year of service, and the team is very pleased that ORS-1 has exceeded its mission design life."

    Designed, manufactured, integrated and tested by ISR Systems in Danbury, CT, ORS-1 is a 500Kg class satellite that is providing a warfighting advantage. In recognition of its importance, ORS-1 has garnered numerous commendations, including:

    --  C4ISR Journal - one of the nation's 25 most important concepts
    --  Aviation Week - one of four finalists nominated for the prestigious
    Laureate Award in the Space category
    --  AIAA - nominated for the Space Systems Award
    --  National Space Club - nominated for the General Bernard Schriever Award
    --  AOC - earned 2012 Mission Sustainment Integrated Product Team Award
    

    Initiated to fulfill requirements from the Commander of US Strategic Command (USSTRATCOM) to support US Central Command (USCENTCOM), the satellite went from the drawing board to delivery in 30 months. Less than 90 days after launch, ORS-1 earned early COCOM acceptance and has been satisfying the mission needs of USCENTCOM and others ever since.

    Rapidly developing and fielding ORS-1 was an important step in demonstrating the in-theater value of low-cost tactically focused EO/IR satellites to meet emerging and persistent warfighter needs in operationally relevant timelines. Moreover, ORS-1 has demonstrated an alternative to the normal acquisition process for space programs and its lower cost, when compared to more traditional space-based ISR platforms, makes it an affordable contributor to the ISR "force mix" in this fiscally constrained environment.

    The ISR Systems' payload features a modified version of its SYERS-2 multispectral sensor, the primary imaging sensor on the U-2 reconnaissance plane. A ground segment that formats the satellite's data products to be compatible with existing Processing, Exploitation and Dissemination (PED) infrastructure was also developed and provided by ISR Systems. ATK (Alliant Tech Systems) was ISR Systems' subcontractor for the spacecraft bus, derived from its TacSat-3 bus.

    The ORS-1 Program is managed by the Space Development and Test Directorate located at Kirtland Air Force base on behalf of the Operationally Responsive Space Office (ORS Office) at the same location. The ORS Office is a joint initiative within the DoD responsible for integrating joint ORS capabilities and for applying ORS resources to the development, acquisition and demonstration of capabilities to meet specific responsive space needs as established by global combatant command joint force commanders and users.

    Microsoft announces Surface commercial expansionMicrosoft announces business-channel expansion plans, commercial app development program and new education incentives.

    REDMOND, Wash., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Microsoft Corp. today announced the initial phase of its business-channel expansion plans for the Surface family of PCs, along with AppsForSurface -- a new Surface application-development program for independent software vendors (ISVs).

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20000822/MSFTLOGO)

    As part of its measured and phased approach to the growth of the Surface business, Microsoft announced the Microsoft Devices Program, which allows customers to purchase Surface and commercial services through authorized resellers. The two-tier program establishes Ingram Micro Inc., SYNNEX Corp. and Tech Data Corp. as inaugural device-authorized distributors to sell Surface to a newly designated group of device-authorized commercial resellers. Today, these resellers include CDW, CompuCom Systems Inc., En Pointe Technologies, Insight Enterprises Inc., PC Connection Inc., PCM Inc., SHI International Corp., Softchoice, Softmart and Zones Inc. In addition to offering Microsoft's extended warranty and accidental damage, resellers bring a variety of value-added services to the Surface family such as asset tagging, custom imaging, kitting, onsite service and support, device recycling, and data protection. During the next few months, Microsoft will work to authorize commercial distributors and resellers in more countries.

    AppsForSurface, a new ISV program that provides devices and funding for Surface-specific business applications, addresses the growing demand for Surface enterprise applications. Current program participants include Airstrip, Citrix, Houghton Mifflin Harcourt and Sage.

    In June, Microsoft announced a one-time offer for Surface RT starting at $199 for qualifying educational institutes running until the end of August in 26 countries, valid for all K-12 schools and universities purchasing direct from Microsoft. In the coming days, Microsoft will expand this offer into the commercial channel starting with Authorized Surface Resellers in the United States. Microsoft has a long tradition of delivering high-quality solutions for education, and this offer is intended to get Surface in the hands of even more educators and students.

    Innovative New Feature on CVS/pharmacy Mobile App Helps Users Identify Potential Drug InteractionsNew, first-of-its-kind functionality helps CVS/pharmacy customers avoid unintended interactions between over-the-counter products and prescriptions

    WOONSOCKET, R.I., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- CVS/pharmacy((R)) today announced the launch of its new Drug Interaction Checker as part of its top-rated CVS Mobile app. An industry first, this unique feature allows customers to quickly and easily check for potential drug interactions by comparing over-the-counter (OTC) products with their prescriptions and other OTCs on their smartphones.

    (Logo: http://photos.prnewswire.com/prnh/20100816/NE50800LOGO)

    Users simply enter the name of the product or active ingredients, or scan the UPC barcode on thousands of products with their smartphone camera. The Drug Interaction Checker will then compare available product details against the OTCs or prescription medications that are entered or imported through the patient's secure pharmacy history. The tool will identify possible interactions based on a comprehensive, continually updated database of drug information to alert users of any potential issues. The Drug Interaction Checker adds to the already existing innovative health resources offered on the CVS Mobile app.

    "Our new Drug Interaction Checker empowers our customers to make important decisions about their health with a convenient tool that determines whether an over-the-counter product may impact the prescriptions they are taking," said Brian Tilzer, Senior Vice President, Chief Digital Officer for CVS/pharmacy. "Our goal at CVS/pharmacy is to continually find new ways of helping people on their path to better health, and this new feature demonstrates how we intend to harness the power of mobile technology as a cutting-edge health resource that addresses real needs of our customers. Now customers will have more information right at their fingertips, so they can make more informed decisions or seek advice from a pharmacist as needed, if the CVS Mobile app alerts them to a potential interaction."

    According to the Centers for Disease Control, nearly half of all Americans take at least one prescription drug per month, with more than 20 percent taking three or more prescriptions. In order for prescriptions to be most effective, patients need to understand how to take their medications and how other drugs, food, or lifestyle elements might interfere with or impact its efficacy. CVS pharmacists are available to provide this counsel in person or over the phone. With this new tool, CVS/pharmacy customers are informed and empowered to seek guidance on drug interactions from the palm of their hand.

    The Drug Interaction Checker leverages native smartphone technology for a fast, easy and intuitive way to check for interactions anytime and anywhere. Users have the option to import prescriptions from their online MyCVS Pharmacy((R)) accounts or manually enter drug information. The Drug Interaction Checker is located on the home screen of the CVS Mobile app, with a new and easy-to-identify icon.

    The Drug Interaction Checker adds to the comprehensive features already offered in the CVS Mobile app. Customers can also use the app to manage and refill prescriptions, access ExtraCare savings and rewards, order Photo prints, view the weekly circular and Deal of the Day, find their local pharmacy or MinuteClinic((R)) and more. The CVS Mobile app is available as a free download from Apple's App Store or through Google Play. Current users can update their existing app to instantly receive the new feature.

    In the coming months, CVS/pharmacy will continue to enhance its mobile suite, offering a variety of exciting new features that take the digital drugstore to the next level. For more information, visit CVS.com/onthego.

    Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. and IGDRASOL Will Present Preliminary Phase III Data Analysis for Cynviloq at the 4th International Nanomedicine Conference in Sydney, Australia

    SAN DIEGO and IRVINE, Calif., July 1, 2013 /PRNewswire/ -- Sorrento Therapeutics, Inc. (OTCQB: SRNE; Sorrento) and IGDRASOL announced today that the companies will present Phase III interim data analysis of Cynviloq in metastatic breast cancer (MBC) patients showing significantly improved overall response rate (ORR) compared to generic paclitaxel as well as updates of their nanomedicine platform, which is being developed for multiple cancer indications in late-stage clinical trials, at the 4(th) International Nanomedicine Conference in Sydney Australia (July 1(st )- 3(rd), 2013). Sorrento has the right to acquire IGDRASOL pursuant to a previously-announced option agreement, entered into in March 2013.

    Cynviloq(TM) (IG-001) is a next-generation, branded, micellar diblock copolymeric paclitaxel formulation currently approved and marketed in several countries as Genexol-PM(R). Cynviloq(TM) has completed Phase 1 or 2 trials in MBC, non-small cell lung cancer (NSCLC), pancreatic cancer, ovarian cancer and bladder cancer in the U.S. and/or ex-U.S. IGDRASOL is preparing for an "End of Phase 2" meeting scheduled with the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) in July 2013, regarding the clinical development of Cynviloq(TM). As an injectable nanoparticle formulation of paclitaxel, Cynviloq(TM) may be eligible for approval through the FDA's 505(b)(2) bioequivalence regulatory pathway versus albumin-bound paclitaxel (nab-paclitaxel; Abraxane(R)) in its currently approved MBC and NSCLC indications.

    Interim data analysis from an ongoing Phase III clinical study of Cynviloq(TM) in MBC patients conducted in South Korea indicates improved ORR vs. Taxol (40% vs. 26%, respectively, p = 0.03). "This clear ORR improvement of Cynviloq(TM) over generic paclitaxel closely mimics that of Abraxane's registration trial results, and is a further validation of the similarity in efficacy between these two different formulations," said Vuong Trieu Ph.D., CEO of IGDRASOL. The oral presentations are entitled:

    --  "A Non-biologic Nanoparticle Paclitaxel for the Treatment of Pancreatic
    Cancer," authored by Vuong Trieu, Catherine Cheng, Larn Hwang, Chao
    Hsiao, and Kouros Motamed.
    --  "IG-001 for Metastatic Breast Cancer?Interim Analysis of a Phase 3
    Trial," authored by Vuong Trieu, Larn Hwang, Chao Hsiao, Kouros Motamed,
    and Chulho Park.
