“QAS (Quality Attributes Software) has committed to building its business model and practice around the energy sustainability effort.” QAS supports the Administration’ effort to support renewable and alternative energy sources, as it becomes an increasing important component in the energy planning and decision process.” “Over the years Larry Hales intelligence, experience and formidable work ethics have been indispensable to our firm.” Smaller clients such as Sidel Systems, FAL, and DNC Solutions have also been positioned to capture large federal contracts.

As United States Secretary of Energy, Dr. Ernest Moniz is tasked with implementing the Department’s mission in support of President Obama’s goals of growing the economy, enhancing security and protecting the environment; World Energy not only advances all of President’s Obama’s energy strategy but promotes American leadership in science and clean energy technology innovation while reaching to meet the world’s energy needs using clean technology.

Under the leadership of Commerce Secretary Penny Pritzker, the U.S. & Foreign Commercial Service’s Global Energy industry initiative seeks the most recent market research in Power Generation, and Renewable Energy industries, we believe that the following divisional support operations will be the working solution.http://www.hales-globalgroup.com http://www.halesmanagement.com

Lipitor Lawsuit News: Federal Judicial Panel to Reconsider Consolidation of Lawsuits Alleging an Association Between Lipitor and Diabetes, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

Lipitor Lawsuit News: Federal Judicial Panel to Reconsider Consolidation of Lawsuits Alleging an Association Between Lipitor and Diabetes, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports












New York, New York (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

As Lipitor lawsuits (http://www.thelipitorlawsuit.com/) filed on behalf of individuals who allegedly develop new onset-Type 2 diabetes due to their use of the cholesterol-lowering statin continue to mount in courts around the country, Bernstein Liebhard LLP notes that the U.S. Judicial Panel on Multidistrict Litigation (JPML) will once again take up a request from plaintiffs to consolidate federally-filed Lipitor claims in a single jurisdiction for pretrial proceedings. According to court documents, the Panel will hear Oral Arguments on the matter on January 30, 2014, when it convenes its next hearing session in New Orleans, Louisiana. Plaintiffs have asked that the multidistrict litigation for all federal Lipitor lawsuits be established in the U.S. District Court, District of South Carolina, where a number of such claims are already being handled in a consolidated manner. (In re Lipitor (Atorvastatin) Litigation, MDL No. 2502 (JPML))

“Lawsuits alleging a link between the use of Lipitor and diabetes are mounting rapidly in federal courts throughout the U.S. A consolidated proceeding, such as that currently under consideration by the JPML, would provide an efficient means of litigating these claims,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Lipitor lawsuit consultations to anyone who may have developed Type 2 diabetes due to the use of this statin medication.

Lipitor and Diabetes Allegations

According to court documents, Lipitor lawsuits involving diabetes allegations have been mounting since February 2012, when the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA) ordered Pfizer, Inc. to add new warnings to the Lipitor label regarding an increased risk of new-onset diabetes in patients who took the medication. Among other things, these claims allege that Pfizer failed to provide patients and doctors with adequate warnings regarding this risk, and that even the cautions that have been added to the Lipitor label remain inadequate. Plaintiffs further allege that Pfizer marketed Lipitor as safe and effective for years, despite its knowledge of data tying its use to elevated blood glucose levels and the development of Type 2 diabetes.

In July, the JPML rejected a previous request from plaintiffs to consolidate federally-filed Lipitor lawsuits in a single jurisdiction, holding that there were too few filings to justify such a proceeding. However, according to a second petition filed by plaintiffs in October, more than 100 Lipitor lawsuits involving diabetes allegations are now pending in federal courts throughout the country. Despite the mounting claims, court documents indicate that Pfizer is still opposed to the creation of a multidistrict litigation for these lawsuits.

A multidistrict litigation like the one proposed for Lipitor lawsuits preserves the resources of the court, parties and witnesses, and would likely avoid duplicative discovery and inconsistent court rulings across a large number of cases involving similar allegations of fact. Among other things, such a proceeding would allow all federally-filed claims involving Lipitor and diabetes to undergo coordinated pretrial proceedings, including discovery and motions practice.

Individuals who allegedly developed Type 2 diabetes after they began taking Lipitor may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and more.

Pradaxa Lawsuits Move Forward, as Federal Judge Considers New Sanctions Against Boehringer, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports

Pradaxa Lawsuits Move Forward, as Federal Judge Considers New Sanctions Against Boehringer, Bernstein Liebhard LLP Reports












New York, NY (PRWEB) December 24, 2013

Thousands of Pradaxa lawsuits (http://www.pradaxalawsuithelp.com/ ) continue to move forward in a federal multidistrict litigation underway in U.S. District Court, Southern District of Illinois, Bernstein Liebhard LLP reports. According to an Order issued on December 18, 2013, U.S. District Judge David R. Herndon is considering new sanction against defendant, Boehringer Ingelheim, and suggested that the company acted “unreasonably, negligently, willfully, and in bad faith,” in regards to certain evidence it now says it is unable to provide in accordance with an earlier directive from the Court. According to Judge Herndon’s Order, the sanctions will be determined once Bellwether Discovery has ended in the Pradaxa litigation, and could affect a number of aspects, including Boehringer Ingelheim’s ability to use certain affirmative defenses. (In Re: Pradaxa (Dabigatran Etexilate) Products Liability Litigation – MDL No. 2385)

“We are watching the Pradaxa litigation very closely, as we continue to investigate claims on behalf of alleged victims of the drug’s bleeding side effects. The final decision on these sanctions could have a significant impact on the outcome of Pradaxa lawsuits,” says Bernstein Liebhard LLP, a nationwide law firm representing victims of defective drugs and medical devices. The Firm is currently offering free Pradaxa lawsuit evaluations to individuals who suffered serious internal bleeding while using this medication.

Pradaxa Lawsuits

Court documents indicate that just over 2,000 Pradaxa lawsuits have been filed in the Southern District of Illinois. All of the claims allege that Boehringer Ingelheim failed to provide adequate warnings regarding the risk of Pradaxa bleeding side effects, as well as the lack of an effective antidote for such an occurrence. The litigation’s first bellwether trial is scheduled to begin in August 2014.

According to court records, Judge Herndon has already sanctioned Boehringer Ingelheim once before for failing to preserve numerous documents sought by plaintiffs with cases pending in the proceeding. According to an Order dated December 9th, the company was fined $ 931,000 after Judge Herndon determined that the steps it had taken to preserve the documents in question were “grossly inadequate” and that the company had “made misrepresentations” regarding its efforts.

Pradaxa is a blood thinner that was brought to market in October 2010, and is used to prevent strokes in people with atrial fibrillation. According to Pradaxa lawsuits, the medication was marketed as a superior alternative to warfarin, a blood thinner that has been in use for decades. However, these claims point out that while the internal bleeding that is sometimes associated with warfarin can be stopped via the administration of vitamin K, there is no readily-available antidote for similar occurrences related to the use of Pradaxa.

A study released in October by the Institute for Safe Medicine Practices revealed that in 2012, Pradaxa had been named in more adverse event reports than any other drug monitored by the U.S. Food & Drug Administration (FDA). The 3,200 reports of Pradaxa side effects received that year included 582 that involved a patient death. By contrast, warfarin was the subject of just 861 FDA adverse reports that included 56 deaths.*

Alleged victims of Pradaxa bleeding side effects may be entitled to compensation for medical bills, lost wages, pain and suffering, and other injury-related damages. To learn more please visit Bernstein Liebhard LLP’s website. For a free case review, please call 800-511-5092.

Federal Reserve Sets January Tapering Date

Federal Reserve Sets January Tapering Date











The Federal Savings Bank


Chicago, IL (PRWEB) December 23, 2013

Immediately following the conclusion of their meeting, Federal Reserve officials announced on December 18th that the central bank will begin to taper its stimulus spending by $ 10 billion per month. The Federal Savings Bank reminds borrowers who have been enjoying a low rate mortgage, this news will likely impact mortgage rates next year.

Under its current rate, the Fed is purchasing $ 85 billion in U.S. Treasury bonds per month in an effort to keep interest rates low and encourage economic growth. Since the economy has shown major signs of improvement, including the November employment report, Fed officials believe it will soon be able to sustain growth on its own going forward.

Economic improvement

Stimulus spending, known as quantitative easing, will be reduced to $ 75 billion per month beginning the first month of 2014. Fed officials have previously stated they would not begin to reduce spending until unemployment reached 6.5 percent or lower and inflation was above 2 percent. While neither of those goals have been met, there are signs the economy will meet them next year.

According to the November jobs report released by the Department of Labor, the unemployment rate dropped to 7 percent, down from 7.3 percent from the previous month. Additionally, 204,000 non-farm payroll jobs were added to the economy, a sign of progress Fed officials were hoping to see. Many economists are pleased by the decision, as the rate of spending by the Fed is unsustainable in the long run and has kept mortgage rates artificially low.

The tapering of QE3 was to be expected as the Federal Reserve hinted in December 2012 that it would being tapering its asset repurchase program. Unemployment is at 7.0% down from 7.3% from the month before, and 3rd quarter GDP posted an impressive quarterly growth rate of 4.1%. The time is certainly now for the Federal Reserve to begin cutting its stimulus package because while the economy has improved the policy has been expensive” says Nick a banker at, The Federal Savings Bank.

“I think it logically, this is what they had to do,” David Kelly, JP Morgan Funds’ managing director, told CNBC on December 18th. “If you look at what’s happened this year, the unemployment rate has come down to 7 percent. We’ve got housing starts over a million units. We got the S&P 500 up 25 percent. In this economy, you have to pull back from the most extreme monetary policy in a century. So I think it’s overdue. I’m glad to see it.”

Mortgage rates

One effect of the taper will be on borrowers. Mortgage rates are likely to rise as the Fed decreases its bond-buying, with some economists guessing the rate for a 30-year fixed mortgage will rise above 5 percent. This time a year ago, interest rates averaged 3.36 percent. However, as the housing market has improved significantly over the last year, with home prices and sales growing quickly, borrowers will likely be able to absorb higher interest rates. The Federal Savings Bank consistently reminds its prospective loan applicants that obtaining a mortgage in 2014 will probably be more expensive due to increasing rates.

Contact the Federal Savings Bank, a veteran owned bank, to find a low rate mortgage.

Contractors Needed in Tennessee; US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Vendors Register in System for Award Management (SAM)

Contractors Needed in Tennessee; US Federal Contractor Registration Helps Vendors Register in System for Award Management (SAM)











US Federal Contractor Registration

Orlando, FL (PRWEB) December 26, 2013

US Federal Contractor Registration helps register businesses in Tennessee in order to be eligible for available government contracts on FedBizOpps. Contracting officers in Tennessee have already awarded over $ 988 million in contract awards in the state since the beginning of the 2013 fiscal year of the amount awarded nationwide, according to the USASpending website. Of the 19,663 contracts awarded, over half were awarded to small businesses.

However, in order to meet federal mandates that at least 23% of all contracting dollars be awarded to small businesses, more companies capable of handling these federal contracts must complete their SAM registration immediately. Every year, the federal government falls short of its procurement goal. In 2009, only 22% of the $ 442 billion set aside for small businesses was awarded, according to US Federal Contractor Registration. “There are not enough qualified, properly registered businesses,” said Dan Driscoll, treasurer at US Federal Contractor Registration. “If there were, the government wouldn’t have a problem meeting that goal.”

In order to bid on and work government contracts, businesses must obtain a DUNS number and must complete SAM registration. Successful contractors also develop aggressive government marketing plans which include the creation of a profile on government websites such as the SBA’s Dynamic Small Business Search and automated bid notifications to their email. US Federal Contractor Registration is strongly encouraging small businesses to ensure their registration is complete and correct so they don’t miss out on the new opportunities available in government contracting.

US Federal Contractor Registration is a third party registration firm with corporate offices in Orlando, FL that has helped thousands of businesses complete their SAM registration and bid on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration pairs businesses with a dedicated case manager who helps them every step of the way, from initial registration to bidding on contracts. US Federal Contractor Registration’s BBB rating is A- thanks to the quality of their service and responsiveness to customers. To request an evaluation and assessment by a Placement Specialist for your business, call the Contractor Helpline at (877) 252-2700 Ext 1 or visit our website at https://www.uscontractorregistration.com/.
