  • 11/01/18--04:07: MIPIM PropTech heads to Asia
  • Paris, France - Media OutReach - November 1, 2018 - Reed MIDEM, organiser of MIPIM, MIPIM UK, MIPIM Asia Summit, MIPIM PropTech NYC and MIPIM PropTech Europe, today announces the launch of MIPIM PropTech Asia to be held in Hong Kong, November 26-27, 2018.


    The new show will run in parallel with the MIPIM Asia Summit (November 27-28). November 26 will see an evening MIPIM PropTech Asia networking event, open to MIPIM Asia Summit delegates and tech startups. November 26 will offer delegates a full day of conference, presentation, business matchmaking and networking events bringing together the 1,000 MIPIM Asia Summit delegates and 100 invited representatives from the proptech startup community.


    Among the speakers addressing delegates in Hong Kong are Wincy Chan, IoT Ecosystem Lead at Microsoft and Ed Parsons, Geospatial Technologist at Google.


    "New tech companies are rapidly proving the importance of their ideas within the global real estate industry," says Nicolas Kozubek, Director of MIPIM PropTech at Reed MIDEM.  "The growing interest of the real estate industry for the tech sector, that we have been addressing during the first two editions of the MIPIM PropTech in New York, and at this year's inaugural MIPIM PropTech Europe, has encouraged us to bring the event to Asia.


    "Massive smartphone penetration in Asia, coupled with rapid urbanization and government support, is driving the development of proptech in the region. As Asia's proptech startups develop, they will increasingly operate in the field of brokerage and rentals by bringing their skills and innovative ideas to sales, marketing, customer relationship management and the use of Big Data. Now is the time for Reed MIDEM to launch MIPIM PropTech in Asia," adds Nicolas Kozubek.


    According to research from Jones Lang Lasalle and Tech in Asia,* startups in Asia such as Qfang, iProperty Group, Mofang Gongyu, Anjuke and FangDD, have received around 60% of the US$7.8 billion invested in proptech worldwide since 2013.


    Reed MIDEM opened the first MIPIM PropTech NYC Summit in 2016, in partnership with MetaProp NYC -- the world's premier real estate technology nexus. In June 2018, global leaders in real estate, technology and venture capital came together at the inaugural edition of MIPIM PropTech Europe in Paris. The two-day event hosted some 1,500 attendees representing 47 countries.


    The MIPIM PropTech events cover real estate's complete value chain and asset classes including residential, offices, retail, hotel and leisure and industrial property. Tech sectors that are represented include property analytics and data, investment and crowdfunding, smart cities, building technology, workflow solutions, BIM, 3D/Virtual Reality and blockchain.

    Signature RESERVE embodies ultra-premium top shelf culinary experience

    BOISE, Idaho, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Albertsons Companies has expanded Signature RESERVE™, its exclusive new top shelf label, into a host of new categories just before the holidays.

    “Signature RESERVE inspires delicious discovery with extraordinary and expertly sourced flavors and ingredients,” said Geoff White, President of Albertsons Companies Own Brands. “I personally experienced this with our Tomato, Porcini, and Black Truffle Pasta Sauce. It instantly became a favorite in our home. I am so excited for our customers to have the same kind of unique culinary moments.”

    The company announced the initial launch of the top-shelf label in May with seven decadent flavors of ice cream, with award-winning Brazilian Guava Cheesecake emerging as a particular customer favorite. Today, the company offers a curated selection of Signature RESERVE products, including ice cream, pasta and pasta sauce, single origin whole bean coffee, loose leaf tea, confectionery, and pie filling.

    Signature RESERVE products are globally sourced to meet truly exacting standards of the brand. For example, the smoky Pecan Pie Filling is flavored with aged bourbon, brown sugar, and real vanilla bean sourced from Madagascar, known for growing the finest vanilla in the world. Each of the expertly-sourced single origin coffees is grown by conscientious famers; the Ethiopian coffee is grown by 150 local farmers. The Pasta and Pasta Sauce are made in Torino, Italy based on authentic recipes passed down through generations of the Pochettino family.

    Customer interest in premier-level products like Signature RESERVE is typically higher during the holiday season, when shoppers hope to discover giftable items or special new products for a festive occasion.

    The company plans to continue adding to the Signature RESERVE line into 2019.

    “We have a really high bar for Signature RESERVE,” White said. “As we discover products and flavors that meet our rigorous selection process, we can’t wait to share them with our customers.”

    Signature RESERVE is part of the company’s lineup of iconic Signature brands, which generates more than $6 billion in annual sales. Signature brands include Signature Cafe®, Signature Farms™, Signature Care™, Signature SELECT™, and the top-shelf Signature RESERVE.

    The Signature brands are part of Albertsons Companies’ portfolio of exclusive and trusted Own Brands, which also includes O Organics®, Lucerne®, and Open Nature®.

    Ecommerce price monitoring platform built by a Brand for Brands. FrigginYeah empowers you to Own Your Brand!

    MANHATTAN BEACH, Calif. (PRWEB) November 01, 2018

    FrigginYeah’s PricingIQ eCommerce price monitoring platform officially went live this week. PricingIQ is a managed price monitoring platform that provides brands and manufacturers with a price monitoring software that helps in achieving top-line growth, reduced costs, and aggressive monitoring for MAP (Minimum Advertised Price) related channel conflict.

    FrigginYeah is maintaining brand integrity by equipping brands and manufacturers with more accurate and easily consumed data needed to make better informed decisions, run their business more seamlessly and profitably, and scalability to monitor marketplaces and retailers previously out of their reach. PricingIQ features MAP Monitoring, Product Review Monitoring, Competitor Tracking, and Buy Box intelligence, providing a complete solution and strategic approach to all pricing related challenges.

    “We took what is a daily manual task for brands and built an automated platform around it,” said Tom Williams, Founder of FrigginYeah. “Our mission is to empower our clients to reclaim and redirect their time and money towards increased profitability and growth rather than scrambling to manually collect data and acting as auditors. For example, previously, a brand would dedicate a great deal of human capital to manually look up individual products (normally only covering a small subset of their catalogue) across numerous websites to find minimum advertised pricing violations. Now they can spend their capital where it counts, applying solutions, protecting their Brand and targeting new business.”

    To get started with FrigginYeah, brands simply submit their Product SKUs, UPCs, and MAP. In as little as 24-hours, FrigginYeah will start providing actionable data. FrigginYeah leverages a large purpose-built library of over 200 websites that includes marketplaces like Amazon, Walmart, and eBay in combination with access to traditional online retailers like Hayneedle, Wayfair, and Jet for the largest market coverage possible. Lastly, brands can track performance with notifications and updates available through a dashboard, email alerts, or programmatically through API calls.

    Prior to the official launch of PricingIQ, FrigginYeah has already signed on several brands, monitored over 1 billion product prices, provided access to over 200 different retailers and marketplace websites, and has already identified and helped stop tens of thousands of map violations.

    “What sets us apart from the competition is that we don’t just leverage Amazon for our software; we work with a broad array of marketplaces and retailers for the widest possible coverage,” said Williams. “We capture all sellers and product prices on the marketplaces, as well as handle product variations like sizing and colors across all websites. We also have access to some of the most difficult websites, like Hayneedle and Wayfair, which leverage advance blocking techniques to prevent brands from gaining automated access.”

    FrigginYeah’s PricingIQ platform comes with flexible scheduling for daily, weekly, or monthly MAP monitoring requirements, a SaaS application for quick actionable intel easy to consume by business users, custom reports, and automated rule-based email alerts. FrigginYeah routinely adds new retailers to their library with broad international and regional coverage monitoring products in the United States, Canada, United Kingdom, Germany, Italy and France.

    A $150 billion chief economist says the US market is past its peak — and warns there's nothing else in the world that can step in to take its place· Larry Hatheway, the chief economist at $150 billion GAM Investments, says the US stock market has reached a stage where it's beyond its peak.
    · Perhaps more ominously, he warns that there's no equity market anywhere in the world capable of stepping up and filling to void left by the US.
    · Hatheway outlines his thoughts in an op-ed provided exclusively to Business Insider.

    Slumping global equity markets in October have surprised investors. The biggest puzzle is what caused the sell-off. What do markets know now that they didn’t know a few months ago?

    Trade wars and their potential escalation? Uncertainty about US mid-term elections? China slowing? Fed hikes? Italy’s fiscal rule-breaking? Angela Merkel’s political woes? A strong dollar? Higher oil prices? Hard Brexit? 

    Nope, nothing new there.

    About the only ‘new news’ in October is the Saudi Arabia imbroglio. Yet few investors ascribe the global equity meltdown to Saudi Arabia alone.

    While it is fashionable to blame large market sell-offs on ‘technicals’ — algorithmic trading or index trackers dumping ETFs — that can’t be the whole story. If the market decline isn’t fundamental, then opportunity exists to buy at knock down prices. Yet the reluctance of stock pickers to move in suggests they sense something is awry.

    More likely, we’ve entered 'post-peak.' The best of growth and earnings is over. If so, then the litany of troublesome policies and politics begins to matter.

    Put differently, when things are good and getting better, it’s easy to climb the wall of worry. When things stop getting better, the metaphor becomes Wiley Coyote in thin air a few feet from the edge of another wall — the face of the Grand Canyon.

    But is it true that we’ve passed peak growth and peak earnings?

    It looks that way. Consider first global growth.

    In the US, economic activity peaked mid-year. Softness is now showing up in housing and autos. Real short rates are edging back toward positive territory (deflated by core inflation). The boost to corporate spending from tax cuts and deregulation is happening now. It will fade next year. Corporate taxes won’t be cut again and the low hanging fruit of deregulation by executive order has been picked.

    Most important, the US economy is at full employment, with trend growth around 2.5%, not 4.2% (the Q2 rate of GDP growth), nor 3.5% (the Q3 rate of GDP growth). From here, either growth slows or inflation accelerates. And if the latter happens, the Fed will hike rates even faster to ensure growth slows.

    Can China replace the US as the world’s growth locomotive? That’s unlikely for two reasons. First, China gets less bang for an additional buck (renminbi) of easing. Second, China is now relaxing credit policy to offset the risk that exports will shrivel as trade conflict with the US intensifies. That’s hardly reassuring. China is girding itself for the worst, not preparing for compromise.

    As for Europe, Japan or the rest of the emerging economies the lesson is age-old. They follow, not lead, the global business cycle. Investors could spend less time waiting for Godot.

    Still, the bulls might counter, what about profits? Aren’t we in a golden age of profitability? Surely that will lure investors back into equities.

    True, for the US and Japan the past decade has seen profit share in GDP, return on capital and a host of other earnings metrics scale heights never before seen in the post-war period.

    Unfortunately, the best is past in the US. The share of corporate profits in US GDP peaked at 12.6% in Q2 2012, where it then hovered for a few years. Over the last two years, however, it has been falling and is now nearly two percentage points below its cyclical peak.

    Why? Largely because firms have already squeezed as much as they can out of labour — capturing the bulk of productivity gains for the bottom line. Wages are beginning to rise, while productivity lags. Energy costs are also rising, as is the cost of debt finance. Lastly, as various companies have recently noted, tariffs are pushing up prices for selected inputs.

    Post-peak US profits is unnerving because in 2018 US equities have been the only game in town. So will any equity market replace the US?

    Japan is quietly enjoying a remarkable decade-long rise in corporate profits — but can anyone imagine Japan, alone, leading global equity markets higher? Europe and emerging markets have consistently failed to deliver on earnings and without an (unlikely) acceleration of economic growth that won’t change.

    In sum, when times were good and getting better, markets could tolerate shabby politics and dubious economic policy, as well as Fed tightening. Post-peak, that’s proving too much to ask.

    So while it would be nice to think that the rest of the world can grab the market leadership baton from the US, or that value can replace growth as the driver of equity returns, that’s unlikely so long as Washington, London, Rome, and a few other places don’t start putting wrongs to right.

    On November 8, 2018, Hulings’ Tesuque Mayor’s Back Yard, is offered at Heritage American Art Auction in Dallas, TX. Two days later, November 10, six paintings are featured at the premier Santa Fe Art Auction in conjunction with the Gerald Peters Gallery. They include Tesuque Cottonwood; Watering Place at Ubeda; Pepito on Donkey Leading Donkey; Fodder for the Donkey, Gift for the Wife; Chrysanthemums, and Still Life with Mushrooms.

    The seven paintings reflect the intensity and timeless influence of Hulings’ masterful artistry, work discipline, and philosophy. As with all the artist’s works, each provides resounding messages for collectors, artists, and viewers at large.

    Hulings’ paintings place the viewer in other’s shoes and show other contexts that evoke individual insight and perspective. His relentless drive throughout a sixty-year career continues to galvanize artists and collectors alike to reach their own potential.

    In addition, artists who study Hulings’ paintings and drawings see them as an apex of representational work to which they can aspire. There is a melding of techniques and ideas that offer a roadmap across the 20th Century from American Impressionists and Realists to their own creations.

    “Whether he was depicting everyday life and landscapes in rural New Mexico, such as both Tesuque paintings, or donkeys and their owners in Mexico and Italy, my father’s goal was to dignify life in the vast, complex, and yet fragile world in which we live,” said Hulings’ daughter, Elizabeth.

    “He would be pleased to see the variety of his works being shown at two of the most influential auctions in the country,” she said.

    Tesuque Mayor's Backyard, 1974, Oil on canvas, 20 x 30 inches (50.8 x 76.2 cm):

    This work shows Hulings at the height of his easel-painting era. Tesuque Mayor’s Backyard is masterfully composed in a way that keeps your eye in perpetual motion, has particularly engaging use of color, and features a gorgeous display of chiaroscuro in the alternating bands of light and shadow.

    Hulings sometimes has an ironic or tongue-in-cheek reference in a title, and we see that in play here. For those of us who live in big cities, this is not the image that comes immediately to mind when we think of a mayor’s house—but with a population under 1,000, Tesuque’s municipal politics may be a little more down to earth. This house more likely belongs to the Chief of Tesuque Pueblo—one of many Native American reservations in the state. The village doesn’t have a mayor, but the Pueblo has a well-defined governmental structure.

    On the boy’s left is an traditional pueblo horno, where Native Americans bake their bread—more evidence that this house is on the reservation. The deep tire tracks in the foreground are another great detail, as they suggest that the mayor drives a truck, and may have peeled out of there in a hurry or been stuck there a couple of times in muddy or snowy conditions. All in a day’s work.

    Santa Fe Art Auction, Saturday, 11/10/18:

    Tesuque Cottonwood, 1976, oil on canvas, 23 ⅜ x 35 ⅜”:

    This classic Northern New Mexico landscape shows the last gasp of fall, before the leaves fall off the trees and all the chamisa shrubs die and turn into tumbleweeds. Clearly 1976 was a good year in the area, because there's water in the stream and all the chamisa are green and happy. Judging from the clouds, the monsoon hasn't ended yet.

    In such a natural scene, there's an interesting architectural detail. If you look carefully at the shadow in the foreground, you'll see that it shows a railing: Hulings is painting the scene from the vantage point of a bridge. It's one of many examples of the artist "keeping it real"—sure it's a spectacular portrait of nature, but the reality of human intervention and the artist’s place as an observer of the scene both get a nod as well.

    Technically, Tesuque Cottonwood is stunning. The smooth, romantic realism of the clouds directly contrasts with the percussive technique he's using on the tree—it's one of many examples of his work that shows influences ranging from Thomas Moran to Jackson Pollock in the same painting. The composition is classic, with the strong presence of the tree in the upper left corner creating a diagonal line. It's full of life and movement and suggests nature has a few surprises left for us.

    Watering Place at Ubeda, 1981, oil on canvas, 18 x 27”:

    Úbeda is in the province of Jaén, directly north of Granada, so if you were driving south from Madrid on the E-5, you'd hit Úbeda about 4/5 of the way to Granada. In Watering Place at Ubeda, the winding orange-yellow earth road flows around a corner of buildings, where daily life is unfolding. A man brings his white burro to drink from a stone cistern, where a lean greyhound is also considering a drink. A boy in a blue shirt with a green bucket looks back at them. Our visual anchor is the widow in her traditional black, carrying something white and some greenery. She looks ahead at the just-walking little girl in her white dress and her accompanying mom or older sibling.

    Hulings lived in Nerja in 1972. Francisco Franco's Spain didn't change that much over those years, especially in the rural hills of Andalucia. Although Franco died in 1975, the return to the economic and cultural influences of the rest of the Western world took many years. So although this looks like a snapshot from an earlier time, in fact was created the same year that then-Lady Diana and Prince Charles were married and "Raiders of the Lost Ark" came out. If you looked at this scene Úbeda today, you'd find a paved street and no donkey.

    A sweet part of the Úbeda heritage, still gracing the area today, is the convent of Carmelitas Descalzas or “Barefoot Carmelites” pastry tradition. Although the nuns are cloistered, you can leave your order through the door, deposit cash on a shelf, and then try the famous custard dessert yema, almond and orange cookies, crunchy tejas, or choux pastry fritters called suspiro de monja translated as “nun’s sigh.”

    Pepito on Donkey Leading Donkey, 1969, oil on canvas, 19 3/8 x 29 ½”
    Fodder for the Donkey, Gift for the Wife, 1978, oil on canvas, 9 x 12”:

    Clark Hulings loved donkeys. Just as they are cornerstones of labor in traditional ways of life, they were fundamental and recurring characters in his work.

    These two paintings were created eleven years apart, and it's a study in contrasts to look at them side by side. Pepito on Donkey Leading Donkey is 1969 and set in Mexico: Pepito is a little boy, riding a sable donkey with a saddle blanket, leading an even smaller saddled donkey; they are in dry grass and facing left. Fodder for the Donkey, Gift for the Wife is 1978 and set in Sicily, Italy, featuring an older man carrying a blue box and some greenery, riding a dark brown donkey in front of a stone building, and facing right.

    Despite their differences, all three donkeys are particularly small and gentle-looking, and their riders both wear hats and have their gazes cast down in concentration. No matter where in the world and what age you are, there are things to get done. You'll also see that although the palettes of both paintings are in earth tones, they each have lively accents. Both have a pop of bright green foliage. "Pepito..." has red and purple flowers mixed through the grass, some strategic deep green-black plants, a standing tree, and a fallen birch. "Fodder..." has the signature orange-red accent just under the blue box, a cleverly-placed dark window just off to the side of the man's head, and a very detailed section of the wall on the right.

    Chrysanthemums, 1977, oil on canvas, 20 x 24”
    Still Life with Mushrooms, 1984, oil on canvas, 11 ½ x 11 ½”:

    Hulings' still lifes are a chance to see him work through very engaging technical challenges, and are an absolute must for flower-lovers—not to mention cooks. Although at first glance they may seem to be traditional subject matter, here, as ever, he is taking chances and doing some less-traditional things behind the scenes.

    Chrysanthemums 1977 is the earlier work of these two, and at 20 x 24" is the larger as well. The fold in the tablecloth, as well as the placement of the produce, create triangles that pull to the bottom center of the frame. The backdrop and tablecloth have wild, abstract use of color, particularly in the top left hand corner, where you'll see blue, tan, pink, brown, and teal all having a big party so not to be outdone by the flowers and produce. When people note that Hulings is a "realist," it's interesting to consider these abstract moments and think about when—and why—he left these definitions behind.

    Still Life with Mushrooms is 1984 and 11.5 x 11.5" and a more intimate still life. One of the intriguing things about this piece is the flare of the shiny copper meeting the red of the tomato; they almost clash, and we know enough about Hulings' understanding of color to know that he meant to do it. One idea about why—appart from the pure fun of the boisterous colors— is so that we seek out the calm and the matte texture of the mushrooms as a visual rest. He's always rooting for the underdog.

    Dublin, Nov. 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- The "Sarcoma Drugs Market Size, Share & Trends Analysis Report By Treatment Type (Chemotherapy, Targeted Therapy), By Major Markets (U.S., U.K., Germany, Spain, Italy, France, Japan), And Segment Forecasts, 2018 - 2023" report has been added to *'s* offering.

    The global sarcoma drugs market size is expected to be valued at USD 1.2 billion by 2023, progressing at a CAGR of 8.5% during the forecast period.

    The growth of the market is largely driven by factors such as new product launches, increasing adoption of novel therapeutics, and growing target population.

    Sarcomas account for less than 1.0% of all adult cancers. Though sarcomas represent a heterogeneous group of over 50 different histological subtypes, the two major subtypes are soft tissue sarcomas (STS) and bone sarcoma. Approximately, 12,000 patients in the U.S. and 28,000 patients in Europe are diagnosed with STS every year.

    For over 40 years, mainstay of localized sarcoma treatment included surgical resection followed by neoadjuvant or adjuvant radiation or chemotherapy. However, even after complete surgical resection, about 50.0% of patients with intermediate or high grade sarcoma develop metastatic disease. Introduction of targeted therapy has revolutionized treatment paradigm for sarcoma. Targeted therapies and pipeline breakthroughs will continue to play a pivotal role in the growth of the market throughout the forecast period.

    *Further key findings from the report suggest:*

    · EU5 will remain the second largest market with more than 30% share by 2023. The growth of the segment can be attributed to rising incidence of STS, uptake of targeted therapies, and increasing R&D activities
    · Eli Lilly's Lartuvo has displaced standard doxorubicin therapy as front-line STS treatment and is anticipated to maintain its prominence in the market over the forecast period
    · Strong unmet needs within the market present a key opportunity to develop breakthrough first-in-class therapies. Out of 45 drugs in the pipeline for sarcoma, seven are in Phase III, 22 in Phase II, two in Phase I/II trials, and the remaining in Phase I and Pre-clinical trials
    · The potential role for use of immuno-oncology agents in sarcomas is currently under evaluation in Phase I/II clinical trials
    · Companies with late-stage pipeline products for sarcoma are likely to enter the market by 2019 and would capture more than 10.0% of the sarcoma market share in 2023
    · Drugs with novel targets in early-phase development include Novartis's Afinitor (mTOR inhibitor), Tesaro's Zejula (PARP inhibitor), Amgen's Imlygic (gene therapy), and Pfizer's Crizotinib (ALK and MET tyrosine kinases inhibitor)
    · Role of VEGF inhibitors and mTOR inhibitors is under evaluation in multiple early phase trials. However, no statistically significant data has been reported till date
