Abu Dhabi, United Arab Emirates, 21 April 2019, (AETOSWire): The world's largest chain of homeopathic clinics, Dr Batra’s Homeopathy, launched their first clinic in Abu Dhabi on World Homeopathy Day, 10th April 2019. The brand, Dr Batra’s, is synonymous with homeopathy. Dr. Mukesh Batra, Padma Shri recipient for medicine (Homeopathy) and India’s leading homeopath, founded Dr Batra’s Multi-Specialty Homeopathy as a patient-driven institution in Mumbai in 1982. With over 225 multi-specialty clinics operating across 125 cities in India, UK, UAE, Bahrain and Bangladesh, today, Dr Batra’s has over 1.5 million happy patients globally with a success rate of 91% as authenticated by American Quality Assessors.

Homeopathy is the 2nd largest system of medicine in the world according to World Health Organization. It is practiced in 86 countries and is consumed by over 200 million people globally. France is the largest contributor to the homeopathy market, followed by Germany. In the UK, the British Royal Family has been under homeopathic care since 1980. According to Global TGI Barometer, 6-9 million people in the UK prefer homeopathy.

Homeopathy works to eradicate the root cause of ailments as opposed to just providing symptomatic relief. Moreover, homeopathy offers treatment that is holistic, safe, cost-effective and non-invasive. It has shown remarkable results in the UAE in treating depression, anxiety, stress allergies, child health ailments – child immunity and growth, hair loss and skin disorders, adding to its popularity. According to a survey conducted by DHCC, 48 % of the UAE population tried Complementary and Alternative medicine (CAM) and 55% were happy with the results.

Commenting on the launch, Dr. Akshay Batra, Vice-Chairman and Managing Director, Dr Batra’s Group of Companies, said, “We have seen a rise in demand for homeopathy in recent years. With patients looking for holistic healthcare options, we are delighted to announce our foray into Abu Dhabi. We are currently located in 5 countries and have 10 international clinics in UK including one in Harley Street, in Dubai at the Dubai Health Care City (DHCC), in Bahrain at the KIMS Bahrain Medical Center (KBMC), in Dhaka (Bangladesh) and now Abu Dhabi.”

Ras Al Khaimah, United Arab Emirates, 21 April 2019, (AETOSWire): The American University of Ras Al Khaimah (AURAK), in cooperation with Khalifa Fund and Google, organized the RAK 19 Startup Weekend to facilitate future entrepreneurs in developing projects into market ready products.

With the sponsorship of the Ras Al Khaimah Department of Economic Development and the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority, RAK 19 Startup Weekend was an event hosted at AURAK that attracted 190 participants with 31 new business ideas from across the United Arab Emirates, desiring to evolve an idea into a viable project ready for implementation. Over the course of the weekend, the event provided participants with leading industry mentors equipped to teach how to plan, implement, and follow through with a business plan. Many business ideas were presented, and among them were the first-place winner, “Her Step Up,” the second place winner, “E Loyalty Card,” and the third place winner, “Maritime Inteltech.”

The Tourism Development Authority’s Chief Executive Officer, Mr. Haitham Mattar, was equally delighted with the opportunity to participate in the weekend convention, “It gave us the opportunity to participate and present investment opportunities for products that Ras al Khaimaj Tourism Authority has put together for young Emiratis who aim to own their own businesses, and we want the young Emiratis to focus on this sector. It is becoming a very important sector for the UAE. It is work 164 billion dirhams for the UAE economy, which means one in every nine dirhams comes from traveling tourism for the UAE economy alone. Those investment opportunities for the young Emiratis whose ambitions are to own their own businesses outside the norm and something very unique will contribute not only to Ras al Khaimah, but also for the UAE as a whole.”

Mr. Ahmed Al Romaithi, the Project Manager of the Zaarie Program at the Kalifa Fund, wanted to stress the importance of programs such as this initiative that facilitate the growth of young Emirati entrepreneurs, “It is important to be a leading role in the local economy where small and medium enterprises represent a large part of the economies of developed countries.”

The Director General of the Department of Economic Development, Dr. Abdulrhman Al Shayeb, was enthusiastic in being able to contribute to such a promising endeavor, “This unique event represents a new gateway for our students to participate in innovation, competition, future opportunities, and outstanding achievements.” The department has agreed to grant future licenses to students with innovative ideas exempt from all fees. As a result of the RAK 19 Startup Weekend, a memorandum of understanding between AURAK and The Department of Economic Development materialized. In the MoU both institutions agreed to cooperate in the exchange of research, the training of students, sponsoring events, providing reduced tuition and training fees, employment opportunities, joint marketing, and encouraging entrepreneurship in developing projects into job market products.

AURAK President, Professor Hassan Hamdan Al Alkim, was pleased that the University was able to collaborate with such esteemed institutions as the Khalifa Fund, Google, the Ras Al Khaimah Department of Economic Development, and the Ras Al Khaimah Tourism Development Authority in a promising initiative that provided professional development, paving the way for the Ras Al Khaimah community to grow among competitors in the job market.

Unique Collaboration Brings Together Advanced Technology and a Visionary Artist

LAUSANNE, Switzerland--(BUSINESS WIRE/AETOSWire)-- Philip Morris International Inc. (PMI) (NYSE: PM) today presents IQOS World revealed by Alex Chinneck at Milan Design Week 2019, the pinnacle event in the world of art and design. IQOS, the flagship innovation in PMI’s smoke-free portfolio, will host the exhibition to the public April 9-14.

The IQOS World exhibition—which is expected to be visited by more than 50,000 people during Milan Design Week—is an artistic expression of the future, brought to life through a collaboration with well-known sculptor Alex Chinneck, whose art is distinguished by his bold and disruptive vision. Alex’s unique talent for combining art, architecture and theater in his work manifests on a monumental scale: The architecture itself, both inside and out, becomes transformed into a work of art, taking on new and unexpected shapes. The walls and floor become metaphors for a process of transformation, evoking—through imaginative portals—seemingly infinite routes to a newly imagined future.

“By taking familiar materials and architectural forms and making them behave in extraordinary ways, we are working with IQOS to change visitors’ perceptions of what is possible,” said Chinneck. “Through the repeated use of the zipper, we have opened up the fabric of a seemingly historic Milanese building to playfully re-imagine what lies behind its facade, floors and walls. Ethereal light pours through each opening, filling the space with color and filling the work with a sense of positivity and potential.”

Milan Design Week is the most important event in the world related to the topic of design—it premieres the latest trends and plays host to events, exhibitions and presentations that complement the unparalleled design of IQOS.

“PMI is leading the transformation of the tobacco industry—one that is based on science and innovation. Our aim is to create a smoke-free future; that is, a future where smoke-free products like IQOS replace cigarettes to the benefit of society,” said Frederic de Wilde, president EU Region, PMI. “It is precisely this thought, aimed at revealing an alternative vision of the future, which naturally guided our collaboration between IQOS and Alex Chinneck.”

IQOS 3 and IQOS 3 MULTI represent the latest versions of the flagship smoke-free device from Philip Morris International. They are characterized by an ergonomic and elegant design; the latest innovation uses a state-of-the-art system that involves heating the tobacco sticks, thus preventing smoke. Design and innovation, therefore, have the power to have a positive impact on the lives of people who smoke and, collectively, the future of public health. As a company, our priority is clear—to help adult smokers who would otherwise continue to smoke to switch as quickly as possible to potentially less harmful alternatives. To date, more than 6.6 million adult smokers in 44 markets around the world have quit smoking and switched to IQOS—playing an instrumental role in building a smoke-free future.

Philip Morris International: Building a Smoke-Free Future

Philip Morris International (PMI) is leading a transformation in the tobacco industry to create a smoke-free future and ultimately replace cigarettes with smoke-free products to the benefit of adults who would otherwise continue to smoke, society, the company and its shareholders. PMI is a leading international tobacco company engaged in the manufacture and sale of cigarettes, smoke-free products and associated electronic devices and accessories, and other nicotine-containing products in markets outside the U.S. PMI is building a future on a new category of smoke-free products that, while not risk-free, are a much better choice than continuing to smoke. Through multidisciplinary capabilities in product development, state-of-the-art facilities and scientific substantiation, PMI aims to ensure that its smoke-free products meet adult consumer preferences and rigorous regulatory requirements. PMI's smoke-free IQOS product portfolio includes heated tobacco and nicotine-containing vapor products. As of December 31, 2018, PMI estimates that approximately 6.6 million adult smokers around the world have already stopped smoking and switched to PMI’s heated tobacco product, which is currently available for sale in 44 markets in key cities or nationwide under the IQOS brand.

GEZE Solutions for Transport Technology

On Water, On Land and In the Air. Diversity from a Single Source

Dubai, United Arab Emirates, 9 April 2019, (AETOSWire): GEZE has for many decades been a reliable partner for customized, high quality transport technology solutions – from cruise ships and trains, to transporters and aeroplanes. What began with fittings for the 'Graf Zeppelin' airship and in German National Railway trains, today continues in state-of-the-art transport technology solutions.

“Depending on the customer’s wishes, it is possible to realize individual special solutions from the areas of door, window and safety technology as well as automatic door systems. Not only do these increase comfort for passengers and staff on water, land and air routes, they also increase safety.” Declared Charles Constantin, Managing Director of GEZE Middle East.

On water: the 'feel-good factor' on board. Solutions for shipbuilding

Whether for large seagoing or smaller river cruise ships, or even private yachts: GEZE solutions for modern shipbuilding ensure comfort, safety and aesthetics on board. We supply highly corrosion-resistant materials, making them optimum for use in sea water and sea air.

GEZE automatic swing and sliding door solutions allow passengers on cruise ships or private boats to move barrier-free and comfortably from room to room. Staff are also able to serve hygienically and without obstacles – for example between the kitchen and dining room. Manual swing doors create an attractive and individual touch on small boat units in particular. Where light-drenched areas are preferred, fanlights with electrical window drives ensure a light, welcoming atmosphere, for example in the swimming pool or wellness area.

GEZE door closers, unobtrusively integrated in the door leaf, ensure safety of the cabin door by enclosing the source of danger in the event of fire. At the same time, reliable closing of inside and external ship doors prevents heat loss and draughts. GEZE door dampers ensure comfort in the cabin, they stop doors gently, close them silently and keep them open with ease if needed.

Custom-fit GEZE solutions such as automated balcony sliding doors can also be individually retrofitted completely in accordance with customer requirements. For people with restricted mobility, automatic swing door drives on cabin and WC doors provide barrier-free access.

On land: Get there safely and comfortably. Solutions for rail traffic

An advantage for passengers or commuters who favor rail travel: no waiting in traffic. Manual and automatic door solutions also ensure added comfort on trains and railways.

The number of people needing to be carried quickly and safely by public transport, particularly in urban centers, is increasing year on year. GEZE glass partitioning walls with automatic sliding door systems ensure optimum safety on the platform when trains are coming in. These door systems are locked electrically, and can also be unlocked manually in emergency situations. Particularly for future driverless public transport systems, these automated systems provide an additional safety factor.

The same is true of funicular railway stations. To ensure passenger access to the funicular is safe and ordered, automatic sliding doors provide reliable opening and closing – completely in line with requirements. Increased passenger safety allows trains to enter the station or access area more quickly. This reduces the waiting time for passengers on board.

GEZE door systems also ensure comfortable movement within a rail vehicle. Whether an automatic sliding door or a manual swing door: GEZE solutions impress with their high level of barrier-free passenger comfort, minimum installation space requirements and reliable opening and closing. These special constructions, fully in line with customer requirements, can be adapted to the particular need.

Solutions for the transport industry

For parcel and transport services, the greatest possible efficiency and optimum security are critical factors. GEZE offers a range of intelligent products for utility vehicles, for example to facilitate access from the driver's cabin to the cargo area.

A common adage in the transport industry is: time is money. A parcel service driver being able to get to the inside of the vehicle quickly and easily from the driver's cabin without the hassle of getting out can yield a valuable time saving.

This is why GEZE offers practical sliding door solutions for transport vehicles. Where the security aspect is paramount

– with money transporters for example – customized door solutions with optional access control ensure optimum protection of the driver and his load.

In the air: special doors for the challenges of aeroplanes. Solutions for aircraft

Different aircraft types pose varying challenges with respect to modern door technology. And yet, whether we're talking about large passenger and cargo planes or private jets: the emphasis is always on safe and comfortable solutions that can be customized to the circumstances.

At the beginning of the century, the skies were dominated by Graf Zeppelin and his airships. Even then, GEZE was building a suitable solution: special aluminium cabin sill track designs. GEZE's customized door systems continue to offer greater comfort and safety in today's modern aircraft. For example by separating the baggage hold: special solutions from the area of automatic sliding doors, for mostly small doorways, ensure baggage is locked away safely, without moving around. Access control solutions on connecting doors prevent unauthorized access to the cockpit.

Customized manual swing doors in, for example, private aircraft, provide comfortable doorways that are smooth and aesthetically fitting. Automatic swing door drives facilitate the way to the aircraft or private jet via a gangway.

Creative freedom with specialized solutions

With GEZE Customer Solutions, customers benefit from sophisticated, customized and special solutions, which offer the best-possible safety and comfort. GEZE experts develop these in precise alignment with the customer’s wishes. And all this from a single source.

A central contact person is available for all questions from the initial idea right up to commissioning. Irrespective of whether the questions refer to technical traffic applications, special building requirements, or solutions for machines and systems. GEZE customized solutions provide everything you need.

Customer support from A to Z

Regular servicing is essential for long-lasting, faultless functionality, longevity and the retention of value for door, window and safety systems. Customized service solutions are rated very highly at GEZE: from installation to maintenance and repairs right up to modernization of existing systems.

The complete support and maintenance of the building technology in one project is thereby our focus. Therefore,

We are now even more excited about Saudi Vision 2030 which we plan to be a part of as we further cement our foothold in the Kingdom as leading architects and engineers.”

In line with Dewan Architects + Engineers’ “go green” initiatives, Hilton Hotels recently announced it is teaming up with Clean the World, an organisation that collects used soaps from hotels, melts them down, sanitizes them, and creates brand new bars of soap for people in need.
