Novus Therapeutics, Inc. (“Novus”) is a specialty pharmaceutical company focused on developing products for patients with disorders of the ear, nose, and throat (“ENT”).

LessonApp: Resolving the Learning Crisis with the Help of Education Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 febbraio 2019

Global education is in crisis. Majority of children do go to school, but the learning results are poor. Teachers in many countries are lacking quality teacher training.
“The reality struck us when we were travelling in emerging countries to train teachers. Many of the teachers we met were doing their best, but they didn’t have the resources or skills to develop their teaching competence,” Ellimaija Ahonen, Co-Founder and CEO of LessonApp says.“During this era of unlimited flow of information and efficient communication technology, how is it possible, that we cannot offer basic pedagogical knowledge and tools for every teacher around the world?” Johanna Järvinen-Taubert, teacher trainer and Co-Founder of LessonApp questions. “Coming from Finland, a land of excellent learning results and a strong ethos of equality, this seemed fundamentally unfair to us.”To tackle this challenge, a mobile lesson planning tool for teachers called LessonApp was developed.
Team LessonApp aims to equip teachers with the understanding of the learning process and, with the tools provided by the app, to help teachers plan efficient and inspiring lessons themselves. The ultimate purpose is to offer quality education for all and increase the joy of learning in classrooms – for both students and teachers.“We guarantee that everyone gets the basic version free of charge – with no time limitations. That is our contribution to solving the education crisis and sharing the good that we have. It is time to make a big impact with digitalization,” says CEO Ahonen.LessonApp Premium was launched on Saturday 16th February 2019 in Malta. “This pioneer collaboration with Ministry for Education of Malta provides every primary teacher an access to LessonApp Premium. We are excited and looking forward to hearing the results and feedback,” Johanna Järvinen-Taubert summarizes.

Kawasaki Completes New Plant in India to Produce Hydraulic Equipment for Construction Machinery

Posted by fidest press agency su mercoledì, 20 febbraio 2019

Kawasaki Heavy Industries, Ltd. announced today that a new plant had been completed at Wipro Kawasaki Precision Machinery Private Limited, which manufactures, sells, and provides after-sales services for hydraulic equipment for the construction industry in India. Focused on the growing demand for hydraulic excavators in India, Kawasaki decided to build this plant in Bengaluru, in addition to an existing plant in the same city. The move reflects Kawasaki’s commitment to meet the demand for hydraulic equipment used by local construction machinery manufacturers, and to generate new demand. With the additional floor space provided by the new plant, the total of two has doubled to 6,000 m2, and production capacity has also doubled from the 2018 level to 40,000 units per year. The increased production capability will enable Kawasaki to respond more flexibly to its customers’ varying production volumes.Although short-term variability is still to be found, overall demand for construction machinery in India has been on the rise due to an expected growth in investment in local infrastructure, such as expressways, railway networks, and ports. With respect to the hydraulic excavator market, medium- to long-term growth is forecast, as annual demand is expected to reach 40,000 to 50,000 units in fiscal 2025. Following in the footsteps of China, India is also expected to achieve rapid growth in infrastructure investment.
Kawasaki has been strengthening its six-region operational structure, encompassing Japan, the UK, the US, Korea, China, and India – the focus of the current bolstering of production capabilities. In order to comprehensively enhance customer satisfaction, Kawasaki will further its efforts worldwide in developing and delivering high-quality, high-performance products and providing full after-sales services for this rapidly-growing hydraulic equipment sector.
