Triton Algae Innovations Ltd. Names Dr. Xun Wang as President Oct 25, 2014 02:10PM

San Diego, CA (PRWEB) October 25, 2014

Triton Algae Innovations, a pioneer in synthetic biology, today announced Dr. Xun Wang has joined the firm as President and Director of all Research & Development.

Triton has developed a patented synthetic biology platform for the production of high value algae-based proteins. According to Dr. Wang, the platform uses algae to produce novel products with advantages over traditional expression systems. He says, "Algae are unique because they can produce compounds that other organisms cannot. What's more, they can be safely consumed without modification. And, they can be cultivated inexpensively at large scale, a key component to commercialization."

Triton's products represent a paradigm shift in how proteins are developed and delivered, and satisfy a market that cannot be met by traditional methods. Triton produces complex proteins, enzymes, and other biologics that are cost- effective and have immediate applications in agricultural, pharmaceutical, and other retail markets.

Prior to Triton, Dr. Wang was a Senior Vice President at Reliance Industries Limited, a Fortune Global 500 company. As the Head of Technology, his responsibilities included overseeing all aspects of Algae-to-Oil technology development, driving company scientific strategy, and developing internal and external scientific collaborations. Previously, he was the Senior Vice President of R&D at Sapphire Energy Inc., a leading algae biofuel start-up company based in San Diego. Here, Dr. Wang led all R&D programs, including algae genetics and biotechnology, and cultivation and harvesting systems.

From 1993 to 2010, Dr. Wang held various positions in leading agricultural industries. Dr. Wang was the President of Syngenta Biotechnology (China) Co. Ltd. (SBC). He was also the Asia Pacific Regional Head of Biotechnology in Syngenta, a member in the Syngenta Global R&D Leadership Council, and a member of the Syngenta Global Biotechnology Leadership Team. From 2006 to 2010, he led the effort of setting up SBC, a Syngenta global R&D center. Before this, he was the Head of Trait Research and Technologies at the Syngenta global biotech R&D center in North Carolina, as well as the Founder and Director at Torrey Mesa Research Institute (Syngenta) in San Diego. Prior to Syngenta, Dr. Wang was a Research Manager in Pioneer Hi-Bred International, Iowa, a DuPont Company, where he led the very first genome project in the agricultural industry.

Dr. Wang is author or co-author of 52 patents and has published 21 international, peer-reviewed research articles. He holds a B.S. in Chemistry and an M.S. in Biochemistry from Jilin University, and a Ph.D. in Biochemistry and Biophysics from Iowa State University.

"We're delighted that Dr. Wang has joined the Triton team," said Dr. Jason Pyle, CEO of Triton. "He, Dr. Mayfield, and I worked together at Sapphire Energy and his leadership skills were evident from day one. Dr. Wang's grounding in agricultural biotechnology makes him one of the foremost algae biotech experts in the world."

Divorce Hotels and "Speedy" Divorce – Attorney Bruce Feinstein, Esq. Speaks about Modern Divorce Practices after Recent ABC News Article Oct 25, 2014 01:00PM

Queens, NY (PRWEB) October 25, 2014

New York recently became home to the country's first divorce hotel in Saratoga Springs. An October 2, 2014 article by ABC News titled Divorce Hotel: Check in Married, Check Out Single explains that the Gideon Putnam Resort in upstate New York plans to offer stays in the hotel along with a divorce proceeding. The service aims to attract couples looking for a luxury component that can alleviate the stresses of a divorce, as well as the speed of leaving a spouse over a long weekend. Bruce Feinstein, Esq., a Queens divorce attorney, weighs in on this new addition to the modern divorce.

The hotel is working in conjunction with Divorce Hotel, a Netherlands-based company that created several similar outposts throughout Europe. This new venue will allow its unique guests to stay in separate rooms and work with a mediator to go through the divorce process. After that, the paperwork is sent to a New York judge to make it legally binding. The package starts at $5,000 and may go higher depending on the complexity of the case. According to the ABC article, the hotel wants to offer a "painless split in an idyllic setting," and "an environment that minimizes the stress of the situation."

This new take on ending a marriage in New York offers both positive and negative ideas about divorce in the modern age. Mr. Feinstein explains, "A divorce hotel can succeed in making the process less painful up front by taking it out of the courtroom. If both spouses are more at ease, they can move quickly through their separation of assets. It also promotes the idea of starting a new chapter in one's life and embracing this new phase as a healthy, positive experience."

But there are certainly downsides to marketing divorce as a speedy, weekend process. Mr Feinstein says, "Every divorce is unique, and couples may have more complicated issues such as child custody and alimony to address. Sometimes it's not possible, or helpful, to think that a divorce can happen in a few quick meetings over a weekend."

The divorce hotel concept fits perfectly into an era where people are looking for more ways to create memorable experiences and complete tasks faster. It also sheds light on the fact that divorce is losing some of its stigma as it begins to be accepted in more religious circles and countries that once considered divorce an abomination. Mr. Feinstein adds, "One of the most important takeaways from the divorce hotel news is the idea that it is coming out of the shadows and becoming a process that allows each spouse to move forward with his or her life. This behavior should also promote planning properly for a divorce and open communication between both spouses."

The Law Offices of Bruce Feinstein, Esq. has nearly two decades of experience in divorce law, helping clients and families resolve their issues and move forward with their financial and personal lives. Visit feinsteindivorcelaw.com for more information or call (718) 475-6039 to reach the New York office.
