Australian instant highway firm Global Road Technology (GRT) signs multi-million dollar infrastructure deal in Brazil

“Instant highway” firm Global Road Technology announces new projects in Brazil as the 2016 Olympic host seeks to fix its road crisis

 LIGHTNING RELEASES (4/17/2014) - Australian “instant highway” firm Global Road Technology (GRT) has signed a multi-million dollar deal in Brazil, as the country seeks to address its massive infrastructure shortfalls leading up to the 2016 RIO Olympic Games.

 GRT will use its range of soil stabilisation and dust control products to develop road networks across thousands of kilometres of South America’s biggest country and largest economy, on projects estimated to total around the $US220 million mark.

 According to GRT spokesperson Ben Skinner, the business is perfectly positioned to meet the infrastructure needs of a developing nation like Brazil.

 “Despite Brazil being the world’s sixth largest economy, it still faces massive infrastructure shortfalls, especially in some of the remoter parts of the country,” Mr Skinner said.

 “We have been working for some time with the Brazilian government and officials on testing and showcasing our products – both in Australia and over there – with the parties involved concluding that GRT provides a cost-effective and fast solution for road development.

 Demand has reached such a point that we have had to open an office in the country, “GRT Brazil” to meet and deliver product orders.”

According to the CEO of Brazil’s National Logistics Operators Association, the ABOL, bad roads increase operations and transportation costs in many cases by as much as 66%. Brazil’s “third-rate” infrastructure has reached such a point that it is now threatening to choke off trade and strangle development. 

Newly appointed President of GRT Brazil, Senhor  (Sr.) – Portuguese for Mr – Adelmir Santana said that roads in Brazil are the lifeblood of communities and the economy.

 “Roads in Brazil are vital to trade, commerce and tourism and as the economy develops we need to continue to create quality infrastructure for the country to maintain growth,” Sr. Santana said.

“Currently the road networks around Brazil are congested and require immediate rebuilding, GRT’s polymer dust suppression and road stabilisation products provide a perfect solution as they can rebuild and repair existing networks – in a cost-effective and timely manner.”

GRT is currently working on canal projects along the San Francisco river system alongside the US Military that will help develop irrigation channels and road systems in the agricultural hub of Petrolina – situated in the northwest of the country.

The business will also be working in Bahia – on the northeast Atlantic coast – with their Brazilian base of operations to be located in the nations capital, Brasilia.

The largest and most challenging project will be the development of a road network along the Venezuelan border, in the state of Roraima – Brazil’s northernmost and least populated state.

This project will take five years to complete due to its scale – 2,000km – and the remoteness of the area. 

GRT is providing industry and government solutions in Australia and internationally by working with major companies across the mining, oil and gas sectors with its cost effective and environmentally friendly road building technology.

About Global Road Technology:  

Global road Technology is an international company that provides revolutionary solutions to create better and safer roads for people, industry and communities.

Jenny Hayworth Releases Inside/Outside: One Woman’s Recovery from Abuse and a Religious Cult

LIGHTNING RELEASES 04/16/14 — Createspace is proud to announce a story of inspiration and recovery from Jenny Hayworth, Inside/Outside: One Woman’s Recovery from Abuse and a Religious Cult available everywhere immediately.

Inside/Outside is a must read compelling true-life account of a struggle from the bondage of a religious cult known as Jehovah’s Witnesses for over 30 years, sexual abuse and her ultimate healing and recovery.

Jenny told no one due to fear of God and feeling like she was a participant and not a victim even though she was only 11 years old when the abuse started.

Although cautioned to keep quiet about the abuse, Jenny found the courage to confront her abusers after her eldest two children were abused by a member of the church.

She would eventually leave the church and begin a six-year period of healing that is inspirational and although it led to her losing all she had ever known, she gained more than she could have imagined.

Clarion Review – “What keeps the pages of Hayworth’s life story turning is her honesty, tenacity, and sheer will to survive through an astounding number of setbacks. Inside/Outside proves the resilience of the human spirit and shows that the cycle of abuse can indeed be broken” 

Kirkus Review – “A harrowing memoir of one woman’s struggle to cope with sexual abuse and depression while living in – and eventually leaving – the Jehovah’s Witnesses” 

Readers Favorite 5 Star Review – “The book is an inspiring story for those who are going through traumatic times…”

Jenny now lives in Australia with her husband in a blended family with 3 of their teenage sons. She has made offering support to those who have been victims of religious fundamentalism her life’s work, and is an advocate for those who have experienced child abuse and are trying to recover as adults.

Web Application Helps Independent Musicians with Networking, Connecting with Audience

LIGHTNING RELEASES: Boston, MA (4/16/2014) — Musicians Landing Inc. has released a new website www.musicianslanding.com,   that helps automate the busywork of Music PR. The web-based application is also a great resource for finding additional gigs, networking to new projects, and distributing mp3s, either for sale or for free (with no fees incurred).

Founder Bob Sparks, a Boston-area native, came to the music business first as an observer. Watching a close friend work in music journalism and another in PR for indie musicians from 2004 onward, he gained an insider’s perspective on an industry in flux. Witnessing all of the various responsibilities shift between label employees and indie publicists, many eventually landing on the artists themselves, Sparks saw a number of developing needs and a way to put his IT knowhow to good use.

“Initially, I wanted to create a platform where bands could sell or share their music online,” he says. “I wanted the artists to set the price and have direct access to their hard-earned proceeds – simple enough. But once I got going, I realized that Musicians Landing™ could satisfy a lot of the administrative needs that indie bands now have to tackle in order to compete in today’s market. I decided to create a one-stop automated music forum: a more comprehensive site-based app that’d allow artists to communicate with each other, create and send notifications automatically to their fans and supporters, blog, share bios, and search for other like-minded artists. Musicians Landing™ is about making the proverbial ‘driver’s seat’ more comfortable and easier to maintain for people that need their time to concentrate on being creative.”

Sparks’ vision for Musician’s Landing™  has finally arrived and it’s an extremely useful tool in the business of self-promotion. Performing tasks such as maintaining mailing lists and disseminating information to fans and colleagues has never been easier, nor less time consuming. Musician’s Landing™ offers a free, web-based application that requires users to create a profile and upload their mailing lists – the system takes care of the rest. Anytime a change is made to a profile, an update can be sent out. Changes to blog entries, new music uploads, and announcements about upcoming performances will be handled by an automated service, notifying fans of the relevant information.

Additionally, the site provides a platform for musicians to sell their music directly. Songs can be posted for streaming-only, free downloads, or for a fee set by the musician. Regardless, Musician’s Landing™ does not charge a fee for transactions. The site is designed for the artist to manage their own account.

Musician’s Landing™ has taken a pro-active approach to Help Wanted postings, sending out notifications to other members based on certain criteria, thus increasing the likelihood of getting positions filled even in the event of last minute emergencies. Similarly, booking requests are made simpler with the ‘booking request button’ – a feature of every profile page – which then asks for some additional details and then relays the information to the artist(s).  And this is just the beginning; over time, Musician’s Landing™ plans on adding more functionality, enabling musicians to devote their time to composing music and being creative… independently.

Luxury Travel Ltd. To Introduce Luxury and Ultra Luxurious Vietnam Tourism Products in Brazil and Latin America

Vietnam’s first luxury tour operator  (www.luxurytravels.asia) will exhibit at WTM Africa from 23-25 April 2014 in Sao Paolo, Brazil.

WTM Latin America will showcase Luxury Travel destinations of Asia. Travel agents and tour operators will be invited to discover Vietnam and Cambodia at WTM Latin America.

LIGHTNING RELEASES (4/16/2014) – Vietnam is a new holiday destination for Latin America travelers. Now, Asia’s most innovative luxury travel and tour company brings Vietnam high-end tourism products closer to travel agents in Sao Paulo, Brazil.

This is the second time, Luxury Travel Ltd. attends this show. The aim is to promote high-end tourism products in the leisure luxury segment and to find buyers who want to sell unique luxury travel experiences to discerning Latin American travelers.

World Travel Market Latin America, the leading global event for the Latin American travel industry, is a three day business-to-business (B2B) event which brings the world to Latin America and promotes Latin America to the world. To be staged annually in the economic powerhouse of Sao Paulo, World Travel Market Latin America is the event where Latin American travel companies will negotiate and conclude major deals, highlighting the area’s importance in the global travel and tourism industry.

With our marketing efforts and commitments with our representative, we will attract more long haul travelers who wish to experience Vietnam and the Indochina Peninsula in style and luxury. At WTM Latin America, we invite travel sellers to do fam trip to experience our service before selling our products,” said says Hung Nguyen, Director of sales and marketing of Luxury Travel Ltd.,

We highlight niche travel experiences, two set departures monthly and we select our top ten once-in-a-life-time trips in Vietnam and Indochina, highlighting 4 and 5 star hotels to sell wholesale to tour operators across Latin America. The frequent services by Gulf-based airlines (Qatar and Emirates), puts Luxury Travel’s offers of authentic encounters within easy reach of Latin America. We already have good GIT and FIT traffic from Latin Africa to the Indochina Peninsula.

The Indochina peninsula (Vietnam, Laos, Cambodia, Thailand and Myanmar), has become increasingly appealing to global travelers from long-haul destination such as Latin Africa.

Vietnam now has world class hotels and resorts, beaches and cuisine, in addition to its natural beauty, rich history and traditional culture. Travelers from Latin America travelling to Vietnam are looking for a more authentic experience and seek to have a deeper understanding of the country’s culture, food, history and everyday life.

While India is geared more toward mass market tourism, Indochina is an exotic destination that is attractive to a more selective class of travelers. Vietnam is becoming more and more recognized as a safe and favored destination for high end tourists from long haul destinations. 

Latin America is in a strong financial position at the moment and Pham Ha, stressed the importance of diversifying markets by participating in the Spanish and Portuguese speaking markets, which provide an ideal platform for the latest contemporary trends and the ability to communicate and establish business partnerships with experts and tourism companies. 

 “We see our clients from Latin America combining multi-countries in one trip and an increase in the number of group tours, private leisure FITs and special interest tailor-made tours. Most of them prefer luxury tours; they expect authentic experiences in luxury travel as well as pampering, but they also want off-the-beaten-track adventures with impeccable service,” says Hung

In Vietnam we have seen the completion of many luxurious hotels and resorts with names such as Marriott, Hyatt, Intercontinental, Six Senses and Amano’i. Vietnam in particular is increasingly being recognised as a destination for high-end global travelers.”

Its tourism infrastructure features a growing list of modern luxury and spa destinations, iconic colonial and boutique properties, recently opened golf courses, seaplane and helicopter flights from Hanoi to Halong Bay, and the launch of luxury yacht and river cruise services that provide a stress-free journey away from busy roads.

Halong Bay is about to enter the ultra-luxury market with the very first six-star boutique all-inclusive Emperor Cruises set to sail at the end of this year. Such improvements account for the recent growth in popularity of the country and prove that an enigmatic and alluring country such as Vietnam has nowhere to go but up.

OXYSURE SYSTEMS (OXYS) REPORTS FOURTH QUARTER AND FULL-YEAR 2013 RESULTS

Frisco, Texas, April 16, 2014 – OxySure Systems, Inc. (OTCQB: OXYS) (“OxySure,” or the “Company”), today announced financial and operating results for the fourth quarter and year ended December 31, 2013.

Fiscal Year 2013 Highlights:

    · Revenues were $1.8 million, up 566%, led by a 787% increase in revenues in the United States

    · Gross profit increased 55.4%; gross margins up to 72.8% from 46.8%

    · General & administrative expenses down 3%

    · Cash up to $657,673

    · Notes payable down 26.3% to $349,975

    · Working capital increased $2,173,647 to a surplus of $747,473

    · Current ratio up to a healthy 1.88

    · Stockholder equity increased by $2,339,709

    · Total assets increased by $1,472,960 to $2,352,354

    · Cash flows increased by $695,765

    · Net loss per share for the year down to $.03 from $.06 the prior year

Julian T. Ross, Chairman of the Board and Chief Executive Officer of OxySure stated, “We finished the year strong, and our fundamentals continue to improve. We are pleased to have delivered on a number of our sales and business goals for the year, including growing our international distribution footprint, building our brand, diversifying our revenue streams and strengthening our balance sheet. I’m also very excited about the way our products are continuing to save or improve people’s lives.”

For the fiscal year ended December 31, 2013, revenues increased by 566% to $1,800,327 from $270,387 in the comparable period last year. The increase was primarily driven by a 787% surge in revenues in the United States. Revenues from international markets also increased 305% to $498,286 for the year ended December 31, 2013, up from $122,900 during 2012. Sales from products for the military in connection with a teaming agreement also increased significantly to $627,200 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013.

For the Company’s Model 615 portable emergency oxygen product, unit cartridge reorder rates continued to increase as the installed base of Model 615 increases, indicating the development of a very “sticky” customer relationship with the product upon adoption. Unit cartridge shipments for the first time exceeded unit shipments of Model 615: during fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 unit cartridge shipments represented 126% of Model 615 units shipped, up from 63% during 2012. As of December 31, 2013, replacement cartridges shipped represented 39.3% of the Model 615 installed base, up from 34.9% as at December 31, 2012. This is consistent with historical trends of rising reorders as customers become more accustomed to OxySure’s products.

Gross profit was $1,310,008 for the twelve months ended December 31, 2013, an increase of $1,183,371 or 934%, primarily due to the combined effect of an increase in service revenues and license fees, and an increase in product gross margins. Gross margin was 72.8%, up significantly from 46.8% in 2012.

Selling, general and administrative expenses for 2013 were $1,798,306 compared to $1,264,825 for fiscal year 2012. The Company increased sales and marketing expenses by 168% to $353,156 as it expanded its sales and marketing, branding and investor relations efforts. General and administrative expenses fell by 3% to $1,089,135 primarily as a result of decreases in employee stock option expense and salaries and wages, offset by increases in professional fees and rent expense.

Interest expense increased 15% from $217,018 during 2012 to $249,703 during 2013. The increase was primarily attributable to an increase of $57,637 in interest accrued on promissory notes, offset by a decrease of $25,911 in interest related to debt discount and amortization of warrant fair values.

Net loss during fiscal year ended December 31, 2013 decreased to $712,452, or $0.03 per share, as compared to $1,144,799 or $0.06 per share for fiscal year ended December 31, 2013. The weighted average shares outstanding were 23,754,402 and 19,880,342 for fiscal year 2013 and 2012, respectively.

The Company achieved significant improvements to its balance sheet. Cash was up to $657,673 at December 31, 2013 from just $13,513 at the end of 2012. Working capital increased $2,173,647 to a surplus of $747,473 from a deficit of $1,426,174 at the prior year end. The Company’s current ratio was up significantly to a healthy 1.88, up from just .17 at the prior year end.

The Company converted $462,448 of notes payable into common stock during 2013 at an aggregate conversion price of $.96 per share. Stockholder equity increased by $2,339,709 to a surplus of $1,423,374 at December 31, 2013, from a deficit of $916,335 at the end of December 31, 2012. Total assets increased by $1,472,960 to $2,352,354 at December 31, 2013, as compared to $879,394 at December 31, 2012.

Business updates

OxySure enters 2014 in a strong competitive position. Over the past twelve months, the Company has:

      · Expanded its international distribution footprint significantly by adding new distributors such as Medizon B.V. for the Netherlands, Belgium and Luxembourg; Aero Healthcare in Australia and the United Kingdom; Pacific Medical Systems in Hong Kong and Macau; and Python in Chile;

      · Added a comprehensive group of Automated External Defibrillators (AEDs) offerings and other complimentary products to provide its customers, distributors and agents a single source solution for medical emergency preparedness;

      · Opportunistically invested in operational efficiencies; and

      · Significantly improved its balance sheet to allow for more financial flexibility.

The Company plans to continue its focus on enhancing its competitive position across three areas: sales and marketing, regulatory approvals and product costs. These initiatives and investments will result in higher sales for OxySure in the future by allowing deeper and wider penetration of its existing markets, and by developing new markets, including international markets. At the same time, they will expand OxySure’s leadership position in the emergency/short duration oxygen market and the pre-hospital medical emergency market in general.

“We are excited about 2014 as we anticipate continued growth, new opportunities and even the possibility of a catalytic event,” said Mr. Ross. “We plan to continue to work hard to improve our products, our competitive position, and our category leadership, while striving to maintain our culture of innovation as we grow.”

ADHD Expert Michelle Rampone of About You Counseling to be Featured on Close-Up Talk Radio

LIGHTNING RELEASES: Fernandina Beach, FL (4/16/2014) – You don’t tell a person who needs glasses to squint harder in order to see, but according to Michelle Rampone, that’s exactly what we tend to do with kids who suffer from attention deficit hyperactivity disorder, or ADHD.

Michelle Rampone is a licensed clinical social worker and founder of About You Counseling & Coaching, where she specializes in the diagnosis and treatment of ADHD, a behavioral disorder that affects an estimated 10 percent of school-age children. Kids with ADHD often have trouble focusing, are hyperactive and act without thinking. They may understand what’s expected of them but have trouble following through because they can’t sit still, pay attention, or attend to details.

“For these kids, school is very difficult, both academically and socially,” says Rampone. “They’re aware people are judging them. Teachers think they’re lazy or disruptive. They’re defined by being distracted. They try to hold themselves together but they can only do it for so long.”

And Rampone knows firsthand, having suffered with ADHD for most of her life without knowing it. Today, Rampone draws on her own experience with ADHD to help other people in the way she wishes she had been helped.

“I am the first person to say if you don’t live it, breathe it and suffer through it every day, you couldn’t possibly understand what it’s like,” says Rampone. “You can have all the expertise in the world but if you don’t connect with your clients and they don’t feel comfortable and understood, it doesn’t work.”

For parents with children suffering from ADHD, Rampone encourages them to educate themselves about the condition, treatments and effective parenting strategies.

“You don’t parent a child with these issues the same way you would another child. Traditional strategies don’t work because their brains don’t work in the traditional way,” says Rampone. “I’m proud to work with families and schools to make a child’s life better. Most people can’t do what I do, so I feel like my work is a gift.”

Close-Up Talk Radio will feature Michelle Rampone in an interview with Doug Llewelyn on April 18th at 12pm EST.
