Industry verticals such as banking and finance services and insurance (BFSI), government and utilities, and telecom and IT, are seen as key demand drivers during the forecast period. Collectively, these segments accounted for 59.2% of the marker share in 2012. Due to fast growing demand from companies under the BFSI sector, this sector is expected to have highest market share throughout the forecast period. This is largely due to increase in incidences of frauds, payment defaults, and stringent regulations regarding GRC (governance, risk, and compliance). This in turn has pushed companies to adopt specialized solutions from managed security services providers, so as they can ensure the confidentiality and security of customer records and information.

Different applications of managed security services are network security, access control, compliance, confidentiality, and ‘risk and vulnerability management’. Among these applications, network security, confidentiality, and compliance services are emerging as leading segments. These segments accounted for approximately 67.4% of market revenue share in 2012.

Fanafi Worldwide Ventures, Inc and Dr. Peter Nwangwu to Create 2,000 Jobs in Nigeria Through Practical Entrepreneurship

Fanafi Worldwide Ventures, Inc and Dr. Peter Nwangwu to Create 2,000 Jobs in Nigeria Through Practical Entrepreneurship











(PRWEB) December 25, 2013

FANAFI (Find A Need And Fill It), is a people-centered corporation driven by finding human needs worldwide, and filling them as part of its social responsibilities to fellow humans, in the course of doing business.

According to Fanafi President and CEO, Dr. Peter U. Nwangwu, a professor of pharmacology, toxicology, and clinical pharmacy who also served as former President and CEO of a U.S pharmaceutical manufacturing company for 15 years, “the dire and compelling unemployment problems in Nigeria is sad and pathetic. Nearly 60% of young university graduates are unemployed. The government does not have the capacity or will to solve the problem. Therefore corporations and individuals with conscience and goodwill must step into the situation and find creative ways to create jobs in Nigeria by engaging the unemployed and giving them the opportunity to create wealth for themselves through entrepreneurship.”

Fanafi owns the brand and worldwide distribution rights of Splendora, a new feminine super maxi-pad created in the USA. Independent laboratory testing found Splendora’s rate of absorption to be superior by 200% as compared to leading pads in the market

Fanafi’s plan is simple. The first stage is recruiting 200 Nigerian entrepreneurs to become

investor-distributors. Each distributor will employ ten independent sales agents to market directly to end-users. A generous 40% profit margin will be split 50/50 between the investor-distributor, and each sales agent under their supervision. So each sales agent keeps 20% of their total sale, and the investor-distributor keeps 20% of the sales volume of each of the ten sales agents under their supervision.

Fanafi is actively reaching out to Nigerian entrepreneurs and Nigerian job seekers:

1. Investor-distributors need to be pharmacists or non-pharmacists with experience in the healthcare products distribution business or related. They should have the capacity to manage at least ten sales agents and need an operating office or base.

The minimum investment is N90,000 which is required to purchase ten cartons of Splendora to engage the ten sales agents and guide them in sales to end-users.

2. Independent sales agents need to have some education, proper sales and presentation skills, positive attitude and good manners. Fanafi Nigerian job seekers and entrepreneurs will be trained and supervised by the investor-distributors. They do not require capital, because they will be supplied products by the Investor-distributors. The independent sales agents have the opportunity to become independent-distributors over time once they acquire the proper sales and management experience and capital required to purchase products and recruit ten sales agents.

Fanafi is planning to release additional products like “Bouncing Baby”, a unique superior baby diaper in four sizes, and “Dignity”, effective adult incontinence pad, which will both be introduced by end of April 2014 to increase the profit centers for the entrepreneurs. Other beauty products in the health and beauty inventory to be introduced in later months include colognes and jewelry.

For additional information on Fanafi or Splendora, visit: http://www.splendora.info. Fanafi has elected to partner with Excellence & Friends Management Consult Ltd (EFMC) to administer and execute this project in Nigeria. To participate, contact: Dr Obinna Oleribe, Executive Director, or Dr Sunny Okoroafor, Project Officer, Special Duties, Hebron International Complex (HITEC), Plot 5E Excellence & Friends Street, Cadastral Zone 05 -07, Dutse Alhaji, Abuja Nigeria, P.O.Box 8179 Wuse Abuja, Phone: +234-8096083335 or +234-8095158724 or visit our website: http://www.expertmanagers.org for more information, and enrollment procedures.

Expansion of Marijuana Legalization Spurs Movement for Child Safety in Washington and Colorado

Expansion of Marijuana Legalization Spurs Movement for Child Safety in Washington and Colorado











Commerce, CA (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

Colorado has seen an increase in cases of pediatric marijuana poisonings (14) and officials are revising regulations on “child safe packaging” that dispensaries are allowed to use in the sale of medical and recreational marijuana. “There are many misconceptions about what really qualifies as child safe packaging” a representative of A&A Packaging says “This is especially true in states like Colorado and Washington where recreational marijuana has been approved.”

Recreational marijuana legislation was a big win for proponents of full legalization, but they are still very much an experiment that the rest of the nation is keeping their eyes on. States that have current medical marijuana laws are no exception. The Colorado poisoning incidents are bringing attention to the fact that medical and recreational marijuana is not only sold in the form of cannabis for the purpose of smoking, but is also sold as baked goods and candy meant for ingestion. Children are many times more likely to confuse these edibles for normal treats and accidentally ingest them.

With no regulations yet in place, some dispensary owners are selling marijuana products in what amounts to little more than zip-lock bags, but some critics point out that these containers do absolutely nothing to promote child safety. “The practice of selling marijuana in baggies is a relic of a bygone era,” says Eric Price, a longtime activist from Seattle who has lobbied for both medical and recreational marijuana legislation. “This calls back to the black market and its only purpose it to package it in a way consistent with customer expectations. You can’t sell Aspirin or Tylenol in baggies, so why would selling marijuana in baggies be acceptable?”

Legislators in Colorado agree with price. The Colorado legislature is putting regulations in place that may soon be a model for the rest of the country: requiring that all marijuana infused products be sold in child resistant packaging. A&A packaging’s representative believes that this is a big step in the maturation of the industry “In order to fully comply with these regulations, it is important for dispensaries to sell their product in opaque child-safe bottles with reversible caps. This will ensure that not only are dispensaries complying with the law but also changing the image of the product to match the legitimacy of established over-the-counter and prescription medications.”

A&A Packaging is California-based business that specializes in medical marijuana packaging and products for both patients and medical marijuana businesses. They offer a variety of packaging mediums from pharmaceutical grade plastic to durable acrylic and glass items designed to keep a patient’s medicine fresh and safe. They are committed to the cause of patients who are suffering from conditions that medical marijuana can help treat, and also strive to treat the medical marijuana industry as a legitimate enterprise on par with the pharmaceutical industry.

New Lawsuit Alleges Bladder Cancer from Actos: Now, AttorneyOne Can Provide Advice











Actos: serious adverse events


San Diego, CA (PRWEB) December 25, 2013

AttorneyOne.com, a recognized authority on law, updated the website recently and they are now actively providing expert opinion, taking into consideration the recent news on Actos lawsuits and potential Actos Recall lawsuit.

A new lawsuit was filed on December 10 by a New Hampshire couple in Louisiana Western District Court alleging that the husband suffered bladder cancer from Actos. Actos is a type 2 diabetes drug, manufactured by Takeda Pharmaceutical Industries Limited and promoted as decreasing insulin resistance. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that he began taking Actos in 2003 and in 2009, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

According to the Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation, on December 16, there were 2,675 cases pending in the Actos Multidistrict Litigation (MDL 2299, US District Court for the Western District of Louisiana).

On September 25, Businessweek published that Takeda allegedly deceived patients and doctors about the risks of Actos, according to the second case that went to trial (Case no. 24-C12003565, Circuit Court for the City of Baltimore, State of Maryland). According to the lawsuit, Takeda should be held liable for the cancer death of a former US Army translator.

Sean Burke, director of Media Relations at AttorneyOne.com, adds that the relevant information illustrates that people continue to file Actos lawsuits. “For that reason”, he continues, “our focus should squarely fall on getting the word out and assisting people in finding the right legal assistance.”

On September 19, a Nevada couple filed a lawsuit in Louisiana Western District Court (case no. 6:2013cv02706) alleging that the man suffered bladder cancer from Actos. In the lawsuit, the plaintiff claims that he was prescribed Actos in 2007, and in 2012 he was diagnosed with bladder cancer.

Chemist Direct warns against excessive binge drinking during the holiday season

Chemist Direct warns against excessive binge drinking during the holiday season











Binge Drinking Detrimental to Health


London (PRWEB UK) 25 December 2013

Government figures show 10 million adults in England regularly exceed the recommended daily limits, increasing their risk of serious illnesses such as heart disease, stroke, liver disease and various cancers. NHS guidelines advise no more than two to three units a day for women or three to four units for men – roughly equal to a large glass of wine for women and two pints of beer for men. 2

The British combine Northern European volumes of consumption with frequency resembling that of Southern Europe and this prevalence to drinking more than the weekly guidelines increases by 15 per cent in men and 11 per cent in women. That equates to 80 drinks over the course of the average holiday, or well over 200 units of alcohol.

More than a quarter said they ended up drinking three times more than normal. Men are more likely to binge drink (up to 81 percent of alcohol binges are done by men) than women and men are also more likely to develop alcohol dependence than women. But 70% of the 3,500 adults questioned by the Department of Health said they plan to cut back. 3

Researchers also found that almost 30 per cent of alcohol consumed in 2005 was “unrecorded” alcohol — referring to alcohol not intended for consumption, home-brewed alcohol, and illegally produced alcohol. In some regions, unrecorded alcohol constituted more than half of all alcohol consumed.

“The amount of unrecorded alcohol consumed is a particular problem, as its consumption is not impacted by public health alcohol policies, such as taxation, which can moderate consumption,” said Dr. Jürgen Rehm, a study author and director of CAMH’s Social and Epidemiological Research Department.

However, this definition does not apply to everyone because the tolerance and the speed of drinking in a session varies from person to person. People who are homozygous for the ALDH2 gene are less likely to binge drink due to severe adverse effects which occur even with moderate amounts of alcohol consumption. Binge drinking increases the risk of heart attack. It could cause you to vomit and if you’re sick when very drunk you could breathe in your own vomit and suffocate. 4

Symptoms of Intoxication:


    Loss of balance, concentration and inhibitions, headache (due to dehydration), irrational behaviour such as arguments or violence, memory loss, blackouts, drowsiness
    Blurred vision
    Slurred speech
    Rapid pulse
    Breathing problems
    Trembling hands, pins and needles
    Upset stomach, vomiting, diarrhoea
    Hypoglycaemia
    Impaired sexual performance, sexually transmitted infections and unwanted pregnancies due to lack of inhibition when drunk, impotence in men
    Bruising and cuts due to falling when drunk

*Short-term effects may be felt on the same or following day

As a reaction to the binge drinking epidemic in Britain, several charities have been created to raise awareness of the dangers of binge drinking and promote responsible drinking. Chemist Direct’s Pharmaceutical Superintendent, Omar El-Gohary, has this advice to add:

“When drinking over the holiday’s, try to pace yourself, avoid drinking more than you are used to and avoid drinking so much that you get drunk. This is even more important if you are out in risky or unfamiliar circumstances. You can easily lose control of what you do or say and may make risky decisions, thinking you’re invulnerable”.

“In addition to long term health risks of drinking to excess such as liver cirrhosis, kidney failure, diabetes and reduced fertility, drinking too much alcohol can lead to alcohol poisoning. The signs of alcohol poisoning can include confusion, irregular breathing, vomiting, seizures, low body temperature and unconsciousness. If you suspect someone has alcohol poisoning contact the emergency services and do not leave them alone until help has arrived”.

Temporary Staffing Organization Pledges to Create More Jobs

Temporary Staffing Organization Pledges to Create More Jobs











Rangamites and their partner associates at Hyatt Regency New Brunswick, NJ


Somerset, New Jersey (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

In a lavish reception held at Hyatt Regency New Brunswick, NJ, the top echelons of Rangam Consultants Inc. outlined their strategic sourcing goals for 2014, while thanking the guests for being cooperative in 2013.

Rangam fulfilled 350+ new positions since 2008, thus securing a hefty 162% revenue growth since the great economic downturn. The newly added jobs expanded RCI’s clientele while simultaneously bettering services to its existing clients from IT and non-IT industries such as pharmaceutical, banking, telecom, energy, and automobile.

“We are confident to keep up the good work in 2014,” said KJ Sharma, senior adviser to RCI and its subsidiary WebTeam Corporation. “Earlier this year we felt proud to receive an award from a leading pharmaceutical client and we were also pleased, but not complacent, to be ranked among the top 5000 Fastest Growing Private Companies in America by the Inc. Magazine,” Sharma added, brimming with optimism that RCI’s journey to bigger and better pastures has just begun.

“At Rangam, we help highly qualified candidates find suitable jobs while ensuring our clients achieve their staffing goals by executing their own growth-oriented strategies. This year in particular has been very successful for us because we have consistently staffed quality candidates to reduce recruitment life cycles and cost-to-company for our clients. Acting as a liaison between customers and candidates, we have provided better training to the latter, just to make sure they help the former meet their goals and expectations by efficiently handling time-sensitive, priority projects,” CEO Nish Parikh said.

“Our clients’ success is our success, and by staffing skilled consultants for our clients’ requirements, we strive to serve both parties the best we can,” President Hetal Parikh said, wishing Happy Holidays and a healthy and prosperous New Year to the attendees.

The year 2013 witnessed a serious urgency in CSR activities, as Rangam was able to make a positive difference in the area of special needs education through its subsidiary WebTeam Corporation. Both Nish and Hetal thanked strategic partners from the autism community for their support and guidance, and extended words of gratitude to MSPs, recruiters and client hiring managers for their help in placing quality resources for technical and non-technical projects of the clients. They also thanked accounts managers for working closely with recruiters and customers, in order to develop a successful and lasting relationship.

Temporary staffing in the post-recession United States gives a degree of importance to strategic sourcing and sustainable business development. Success with newly added clients to its portfolio has provided the Somerset-based company significant economic leverage to strengthen its offshore facility, with an aim to have in place green business practices for the future, a close source divulged.

About Rangam Consultants Inc.

Established in 1995, Rangam Consultants Inc. is among the fastest growing temporary staffing organizations in the United States. With a team of over 230 professionals, RCI has been catering to the temporary staffing requirements of an elite pool of Fortune 500 clients from pharmaceutical, telecom, banking, energy and automobile industries.
