Dallas, Texas (PRWEB) March 07, 2014
In the wake of softening market demand in 2012, the global semiconductor market demand resumed in 2013. Despite the still-lukewarm macroeconomic conditions and noticeable declines in the demand for personal PCs, the worldwide semiconductor market still witnessed 3.3% year-on-year growth in 2013, bolstered mainly by the increasing demand for smart handheld devices such as smartphones and tablets.
From a macroeconomic perspective, the global economy is expected to see a slow comeback in 2014. According to statistics by IMF (International Monetary Fund), the global economy is estimated to see a 3.7% year-on-year growth in 2014, compared to just 3% in 2013. This is mainly attributed to growing economy witnessed in some major markets in 2014 such as the United States and Japan, even the euro zone. Emerging markets, though experiencing a slowdown, is expected to see 5.1% year-on-year growth in 2014, in particular China and India, where economic performance in 2014 is expected to outpace that in 2013.
Looking at the downstream demand for ICT products, the decline in personal PC shipments is expected to slow down in 2014 compared to 2013. Smart handheld devices, despite a slowdown in demand, are still expected to see positive shipment growth. Therefore, amid the global economic recovery, sales of smart handheld devices will buoy the global semiconductor market, to see a 4.4% growth in 2014 compared to 2013.

Communication is often a company’s weakest link. However it is no secret that the importance of communication is paramount and can make or break a company. Ingagement is all about the art of communication to help franchises improve their communication.
“The idea for Ingagement came out of conversations I was having with a client about how none of their franchisees seemed to know what was going on. We talked about how they were communicating with them and the number of touches they received daily. It was astonishing,” said Evan Hackel, president of Ingage Consulting.
Ingagement begins with a thorough look at a franchise’s communications of all types. There is no cookie cutter answer that will work for everyone because Ingage understands that each franchise has its own unique way of doing things. After this in-depth review at the franchise and its current communication plan, a communication blueprint is made. This blueprint is the not just the overarching goals, but also the tactical plan to make it happen. “The tactical plan is extremely important. So often companies come in, evaluate, tell a company what they should do, but they don’t get to the “how”. The how is so important that it is a key part of our program,” added Hackel
The most innovative part of the Ingagement service is the Mastermind Groups. Ingage will connect participants together with other franchise communication specialists in varying industries around the country. Brainstorming and discussing challenges in this group provides a wealth of information and it is where many find solutions to communication hurdles.
“Mastermind Groups are the continuing portion of this service that all participants enjoy. They look forward to talking to others who share the same issues and working through potential solutions. The sharing of best practices between the participants is amazing,” said Janet Brideaux, Director of Communications for Ingage Consulting.
Ingage Consulting will be attending the International Franchise Association’s 54th Annual Convention to launch this program to franchises. To learn more you can visit their website at http://www.ingage.net/ingagement.

MELBOURNE, AUSTRALIA -- (Marketwired) -- 03/07/14 -- Genetic Technologies Limited (ASX: GTG) (NASDAQ: GENE) today announced the recent online publication in the journal Applied Health Economics and Health Policy of a study entitled, "Economic Evaluation of Using a Genetic Test to Direct Breast Cancer Chemoprevention in White Women With a Previous Breast Biopsy." This study was a collaborative project between Genetic Technologies Limited and Archimedes Inc. of San Francisco, a healthcare modeling and analytics organization. The study examined the cost-effectiveness of utilizing BREVAGen to direct tamoxifen chemoprevention.
A simulation model of breast cancer and health care processes was used to simulate a population of white women aged 40 - 69 who were at elevated risk for breast cancer due to a history of benign breast biopsy, in a virtual clinical trial. Women were assessed for risk of developing breast cancer using the BREVAGen test to determine eligibility for five years of tamoxifen therapy. The BREVAGen test was most cost-effective when given to patients at an intermediate risk of developing breast cancer (1.2 - 1.66% 5-year risk). The results demonstrated that adding information about breast cancer susceptibility loci to current decision models for breast cancer chemoprevention not only improves clinical outcomes (with an average of 15 breast cancer cases prevented per 1,000 women), but is also cost-effective, with an incremental cost-effectiveness ratio below the benchmark number used by U.S. payers of $50,000 per quality-adjusted life year (QALY) saved.
"We are pleased to see a predicted improvement in clinical outcomes based on the use of BREVAGen and the identification of the risk profile group of women for which it is optimally cost-effective," said Ms. Alison Mew, CEO of Genetic Technologies. "To have our risk test featured in such a prominent and respected publication in the field of health economics is encouraging and demonstrative that BREVAGen offers many benefits to patients and providers alike to prevent potential cancer occurrence and to lower associated costs along the way."
Initially launched in select U.S. territories in June of 2011, BREVAGen is now available for sale in all 50 U.S. states.
