Industry: Internet & Online

Press Release Summary: Stan James (Gibraltar) are bringing better value to their customers, as they announce they will make their own Board Prices, as well as offering Best Odds Guaranteed for all British Horse Racing.

Press Release Body: Gibraltar-based bookmaker Stan James have announced that they would be breaking ranks from their competitors, by offering their own board prices for all British Horse Racing until Christmas.

Rather than offer industry-led prices to racing punters, Stan James will offer their own SJ price; meaning better value for their loyal customers. They are also giving a best odds guarantee on every British horse race from now until Christmas.

Peter Fisher, CEO of Stan James commented that the customer has never had it so good, “For years our customers have had to accept board prices dictated by the course – the same price as everyone else, with no value whatsoever. By offering our own SJ prices, it gives us the chance to be far more competitive in the run-up to every horse race in Britain.”

“The SJ Price will be as good, if not better than the industry price for every race in the British Horse Racing calendar and we guarantee this to all of our loyal customers for at least the next 12 weeks. Not only that, we also are guaranteeing every price on all British Horse Racing for the next 12 weeks.”

“With better board prices on offer, which are guaranteed against the starting price, our customers are getting the best value around and we see no reason why any punter should want to bet anywhere else.”

This new announcement comes hot on the heels of the launch of Stan James Mobile, whereby customers can experience the ultimate Betting In-Running experience. Using the very latest technology from industry leaders Mfuse, Stan James Mobile allows customers to place bets from anywhere and at any time, making it the most convenient method of betting ever to be made available.

Hong Kong stocks reach a new historic high

 

Released on: September 27, 2007, 3:15 pm

Press Release Author: Talbot Reese, Inc.

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: Hong Kong, China. As Hong Kong stocks reach a new historic high, Venture Capital Firm Talbot and Reese, Inc. analyzes the reasons for this growth.

Press Release Body: Following a very volatile last week in August, share prices on the Hong Kong stock exchange rebounded to a historic new high on 31 August when the Hang Seng Index briefly soared to 24,000 points during intra-day trade on that day. The turnover on that day was HK$113 billion (US$14.48 billion).

At the time of writing, the Hang Seng Index has since passed the 24,000 mark. The Hong Kong stock market has since experienced a re-rating for investors since the gloom of 2003 when SARS hit Hong Kong and unemployment went to new highs.

A number of factors have contributed to Hong Kong listed shares hitting new highs, and these may be attributed as follows:

1. Global markets becoming more stable from the sub-prime problems as a result of central banks pumping liquidity into the banking sector.

2. China’s high economic growth.

3. China’s reform of its state owned enterprises by allowing the fittest companies to list on the Hong Kong stock exchange.

4. China allowing private entrepreneurs to list their companies overseas.

5. As Hong Kong investors are knowledgeable about Chinese companies, this influences the choice of listing here.

6. Investors believing in the China economic growth story and the emergence of consumer spending power.

7. Hong Kong is a free market, there is no capital gains tax for individual investors, no restrictions on movement of capital, and is a proxy for investing in China.

Another factor is the recent announcement by the Chinese Government that it will allow Chinese citizens to invest directly in Hong Kong shares. Under this measure, Chinese citizens who have opened an account with the Bank of China in Tianjin will be allowed to invest directly in Hong Kong shares. Chinese citizens will have the freedom to invest in some well known Chinese companies that are currently listed in Hong Kong but not yet listed in China such as China Mobile (the country’s largest mobile phone company), Petrochina (the leading Chinese oil company, in which Warren Buffett has an investment stake), etc. China’s citizens can also purchase shares in Chinese companies (H shares) which are relatively cheaper than the same A shares that are listed in Shanghai. The initial investment funds flow has been estimated to be between US$10 to US$50 billion as a result of this measure known as the “through train” programme.

If you or your clients are interested in opening share brokerages accounts to invest in HK shares, please contact us for details.

Talbot and Reese, Inc. is well established, with an impressive record of success and a solid reputation in the financial industry. Through our extensive experience we give our portfolio companies the essentials of success: a solid reputation, strong financial resources, extensive business experience, and a global network of relationships.

This includes white papers, case studies; it could include data sheets or product brochures. Just about anything that is needed to sell to this market. You need to have it readily available to your prospect, or your competition could get in there first.”

Press Release Author: Madeline Farr

Industry: Internet & Online

Press Release Summary: Stan James launches mobile betting service to give customers complete freedom with placing bets

Press Release Body: Gibraltar based bookmaker Stan James have announced the launch of a new mobile betting service available to their growing number of loyal customers, using the latest technology from industry leaders Mfuse. Stan James Mobile have created the new service to give their users the ultimate In-Running experience, allowing customers to place bets from anywhere and at any time, making it the most convenient method of betting ever to be made available.CEO of Stan James (http://www.stanjames.com/), Peter Fisher, commented on the company’s latest innovation,Mobile betting fits well with the Stan James business ethos. WeРІР‚в„ўve been at the forefront of Sports Betting over the last decade and weРІР‚в„ўre synonymous with Betting In-Running, where our traders update the prices while the sport is in progress. This new mobile product now offers our punters the ability to bet In-Running at any time – in front of the TV, in the pub or on a train as a game or match unfolds.РІР‚в„ў

By texting ‘stans’ to 89700, customers will be able to download the Stan James mobile application (http://www.stanjames.com/mobile) and then within minutes log-in using their existing username and password. Alternatively, customers new to Stan James can sign-up via their mobile phone, safe in the knowledge that should they subsequently wish to bet via the Stan James website or call centre, they can.

The move to strengthen the Stan James mobile service comes on the back of rising penetration of internet-compatible mobile handsets coupled with an increase in customer demand for real-time betting during sporting events. Recent statistics from comScore and Telephia indicate that over 5.7m people in the UK used a mobile device to access the internet during January 2007, with the number expected to grow as the next generation of handsets offer an improved internet experience. The Mfuse technology which has been implemented by Stan James gives customers this greater freedom which they believe will become standard across the sports betting (http://www.stanjames.com/) industry.

Basic 101 Vehicle Care Tips for the Fall and Winter Months


Released on: September 27, 2007, 7:47 am

Press Release Author: Rick Christopher

Industry: Automotive

Press Release Summary: Precautions motorists can take to see if they are “good to go” for the road this fall and winter season

Press Release Body: Motorists don’t need an automotive member services club like AAA to tell them that when the long sunny days quickly give way to cold, rain and the occasional premature snowflakes, it’s a good sign to begin preparing their vehicle for the fall and winter months.

One precaution a motorist can take to see if they are “good to go” for the road is to take the following survey. If the answer is a definite “yes” to all of the eight questions, they are ready for the fall and winter seasons. If there’s a “no” response on any one, well, there may be some further maintenance required by the motorist.

1. Do you consider yourself a defensive driver and use common sense to adjust your driving habits during adverse weather conditions?

2. Do you maintain a full gas tank to lower condensation for increased fuel mileage?

3. Do you follow the rule of thumb of not to use overdrive in cold or freezing temperatures?

4. Do you know that four-wheel drive make give you better “get-up and go” but it won’t stop your vehicle any faster?

5. Did you know that if you add the weight of a spray-on bedliner to the rear of your truck it provides greater traction? The additional 50 pounds from an Ameraguard Sprayed On Bedliner will give a driver greater opportunity to deter rear wheel skids plus the skid-resistant coating will be handy in wet conditions when loading/unloading work or personal stuff.

6. Is your vehicle equipped with the necessary emergency supplies – like jumper cables, tow chain, shovel, and flashlights — if you and your passengers are stranded?

7. Does your vehicle have a breakdown kit? The basic items include food, water, first-aid kit, road flares, plus warm clothing and accessories as blankets, gloves, boots, and hats.

8. Is the heater and defroster working properly?

These are but a few of the Basic 101 Vehicle Maintenance Tips that any motorist can follow to ensure a smoother and safer ride this winter for family and friends. Other maintenance checkpoints include checking the fluids regularly; maintaining a strong battery; and that all the headlights are shining brightly.

For more information on how vehicles owners can better prepare their car or truck for the seasons’ change, when the weather turns bad and rust and corrosion begins to show signs of attacking the exposed metal like a truck bed, visit www.ameraguard.com or call toll-free 1-866-366-7035.

Internet Marketing Coach Reveals His Insider Secrets


Released on: September 26, 2007, 8:28 pm

Press Release Author: Phil Brown / Watch Dog Reports

Industry: Internet & Online

Press Release Summary: What happens when you get a coach or a mentor along with your dream Internet Marketing package? Well, you have little excuse to fail, thatРІР‚в„ўs what! See how Phil Brown points people in the direction of the Perfect Wealth Formula by giving them the support they want and need to succeed.

Press Release Body: September 26, 2007 – Miami, Florida – Purchasing an Internet Marketing system is something everyone has thought of doing. What holds most people back is the thought of failure. Phil Brown, Internet Marketing Coach and Mentor, understands this fear and gently coxes his students through it, instilling in them all of the knowledge and confidence they need to make the right decisions.

“Making money online is about more than just setting up the framework and letting it run itself. The behavioral-musts I instill in my students assist them onto a path of true success” says Mr. Brown. “I’ve been in the Internet Marketing game for over ten years and the people who succeed are not giving away their hard earned money to the 2-up programs such as EDC Gold, Global Resorts Network, Coastal Vacations, YTB Travel, Emerald Passport, Liberty League, Passport2Wealth, Road Map To Riches or Jaguar Marketing disciples, they are the people who want to join a winning team like the Perfect Wealth Formula. It comes with fail-safe, built-in support system.”

The Internet Marketing system of Mr. BrownРІР‚в„ўs choice is the Perfect Wealth Formula. It is a different style of Internet Marketing system based on dedication to potential buyers and a mind-set that focused Internet marketers have a golden key to success if they just keep a few simple steps in mind. Mentors like Phil Brown can help keep that focus, having the wealth of over ten years of experience in Internet Marketing and knowing where to point pupils (and when to prod them) has made PhilРІР‚в„ўs students part of an exclusive group.

“My secret is that you always stay honest, never get greedy, and help people whenever you can.” Phil learned this bit of advice from the Perfect Wealth Formula program and he takes every opportunity that he can to pay it forward. “I’ve seen far too many people get into marketing opportunities without a support system in place – and give up after a month.”

PhilРІР‚в„ўs success stems from a willingness to stay focused, experience and the gratitude and support of his team. Now, you have to admit that it sounds like a great team to join. Comfort, security, AND success? ThereРІР‚в„ўs no Internet marketing program that can top that.

Mr. Phil Brown has been an Internet Marketing Coach and Mentor for over twelve years. He began his quest to help people in Internet Marketing after spending years operating his own businesses. He has studied the Internet from its inception and Mr. Brown even remembers an Internet without search engines. An avid investigator of scams and frauds, Mr. Brown uses his studies to help coach the vulnerable into tip-top marketing shape. Many successful marketers have him to thank for their triumphs.

Talbot Reese in Prime Position to assist Foreign Firms List On the Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

 

Released on: September 26, 2007, 8:13 pm

Press Release Author: Talbot Reese, Inc.

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: Big foreign companies, mostly from Europe, are saying non, nein and nee to being listed on exchanges in the United States and opt for the HKEx “Hong Kong Stock Exchange”.

Press Release Body: A surge of foreign companies are bidding adieu to United States markets and their American depositary receipts, because lackluster trading in many foreign listings and a feeling that the costs of having a stock listed in the United States are not worthwhile have dampened enthusiasm.

Already this year, 34 foreign companies have delisted from the New York Stock Exchange, and nine more have announced they plan to do so, says the exchange. That tops the 21 foreign companies that have joined the N.Y.S.E. Another 20 have said this year they plan to leave the Nasdaq or have done so already.

Most foreign companies will be much better off trading on local exchanges in their own countries.

Currently the hottest IPO Exchange to list any company on is the HKEx or The Hong Kong Stock Exchange.

“There are companies lining up to exit U.S. capital markets,” says James Angel, professor of finance at Georgetown University.

The reasons for the foreign flight include:

•Easier to leave. The Securities and Exchange Commission in March eased the process to “deregister,” or terminate securities, if average daily trading volume is less than 5% of a company’s worldwide average trading volume over the past 12 months. This rule change was the excuse many companies were waiting for, Angel says.

•Lackluster interest. Trading of many European companies’ ADRs has been light, says Susanne Kloess, a global markets expert for Accenture. Ahold, a Dutch grocery store company that owns Giant and Stop & Shop, says average daily volume of the U.S. shares has been less than 5% of its total. Most U.S. investors buy its shares on the local Euronext Amsterdam exchange.

•Improved exchanges elsewhere. Foreign exchanges have become more effective in raising capital, says Catherine Kinney, president of NYSE Euronext. Meanwhile, it’s getting easier for U.S. investors to trade on foreign exchanges. E-Trade recently let U.S. investors trade stocks listed on foreign exchanges as easily as they can trade on the NYSE or Nasdaq.

•Increased regulatory and other costs. The NYSE listing fee for most foreign companies is $38,000 a year, Kinney says. But fees needed to comply with Sarbanes-Oxley rules and convert books to meet U.S. accounting standards can add millions of dollars in costs, Angel says.

Regulatory changes are needed, or the U.S. stands to lose its position as the world’s money-raising capital, says Rep. Tom Feeney, R-Fla. Feeney is co-sponsoring legislation that will require the SEC to clarify the requirements of controversial Sarbanes-Oxley rules.

Expect the exodus to continue, Kloess says. “You will see more (foreign companies) delisting from U.S. markets,” she says. “I’m hearing everyone in Europe discussing it.”

Maclab Enterprises Selects Intuit Real Estate SolutionsРІР‚в„ў MRI Residential and Commercial System

Released on: September 26, 2007, 2:51 pm

Press Release Author: Lynx Systems Inc.

Industry: Software

Press Release Summary: Maclab Enterprises has selected the Intuit Real Estate SolutionsРІР‚в„ў MRI Residential and Commercial System to replace their existing Yardi property management system. The new system was purchased from Lynx Systems Inc., the Canadian business partner of Intuit.

Press Release Body: Toronto, September 26, 2007– Maclab Enterprises has selected the Intuit Real Estate Solutions’ MRI Residential and Commercial System to replace their existing Yardi property management system. The new system was purchased from Lynx Systems Inc., the Canadian business partner of Intuit. Lynx Systems will be responsible for system implementation, training, and support for the new software.

Maclab Enterprises, headquartered in Edmonton, is the largest privately-held residential rental property holder in Alberta and the Northwest Territories. The company also owns commercial and hotel properties, and provides professional property management through Midwest Property Management.

With the explosive demand for rental space in the Alberta market, Maclab was losing confidence in the ability of its existing property management system to meet their growing needs. Staff was spending more and more time creating reports through Excel and Word as opposed to utilizing the information directly through their property management system. Also, management was not receiving critical, timely information. Sonia Ali-Smith, Divisional Controller, explains, “We can’t wait 3-4 days to get critical information. Our data must be timely and accurate so that we can make strategic decisions to improve our occupancy rates and returns.”

Impressive Report Writing and Features
After an extensive evaluation of vendors, it became clear that Lynx and Intuit MRI would be the right choice. Maclab was impressed by the software and report writing flexibility offered by MRI’s Toolkit technology. Sonia explains, “When Don Robinson invited us to a seminar … we were extremely impressed with the quality and robustness of the system.” Sonia adds, “It’s user-friendly…. Each screen and program is dedicated to a specific function, and is not cluttered with unrelated information; as a result, people can focus on the item at hand rather than being distracted with superfluous information on the screen.”

Company Knowledge and Service
She further explains, “We ultimately chose Lynx, however, because of their knowledge and service. Additionally, having the Intuit name associated with the MRI product was a strong selling feature. Intuit has a history of strong support and growth of IT products and that meant a lot to our evaluation committee. We enjoyed dealing with Lynx; it was easy to ask questions and we got the answers quickly. They even gave our IT department the opportunity to deal directly with their technical support team, which further demonstrated their approach to client service.”

Lynx Systems as a Partner
Sonia states, “They [Lynx] were also more willing than other vendors to customize the product; most other vendors simply said ‘no, it can’t be done.’” She continues, “We appreciate the continuous development of the program. Also, Lynx is listening to the client and developing the program to meet their needs. Flexibility and a company that listens are important.”

In short, Maclab wanted a company that would work with them, to provide them with timely and critical information needed to stay competitive in their fast moving market. Sonia concludes, “Our relationship with Lynx feels more like a partnership. I’m very excited to be working together.”

Talbot Reese Advise Clients on Asset Allocation

 

Released on: September 26, 2007, 1:53 pm

Press Release Author: Talbot Reese

Industry: Financial

Press Release Summary: Talbot Reese’s professional money managers have long recognized the benefit of investing across different asset classes including venture capital.

Press Release Body: Asset Allocation: Proper asset allocation is essential to successful investing. Professional money managers have long recognized the benefit of investing across different asset classes including venture capital. In fact, the largest contributors to venture capital funds have historically been institutional investors such as pension funds, financial institutions, insurance companies, endowment funds, and large corporations.

Why should you consider a similar strategy? By investing in different asset classes, such as stocks, bonds, cash and venture capital, you help reduce overall portfolio risk. Since each asset class responds differently to changing economic and market conditions, diversifying across different asset classes can help manage volatility in your portfolio. Talbot and Reese allows individual investors the ability to include institutional quality venture capital investments as a component of their overall portfolio allocation strategy.

Picture your investment portfolio as a pyramid. The base of the pyramid, the largest percentage of your assets, is the foundation and should contain an adequate allocation of secure liquid investments. However, as you build on the foundation, you are able to take greater risks to achieve higher returns. The peak of the pyramid is for high growth investments, such as venture capital. By allocating a moderate percentage (5-15%) of your portfolio to more speculative investments, you raise the long-term return potential of your portfolio and help limit the risk to its overall performance. The goal is to match the returns you hope to achieve with the risk you can afford to take.
