leave a comment »

SINGAPORE July 15, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Japan’s pioneer hair restoration and hair growth specialists, JHGC (Japan Hair Growth Consultants) is proud to announce its Singapore debut with its total hair care salon at the heart of the Orchard Road shopping belt at TripleOne Somerset on 3 July, 2013.

Known as Biotech in Japan, JHGC brings over 30 years of hair growth experience and trust from Japan to Singapore. As the first total Japanese hair care salon in Singapore, JHGC are confident of providing the highest standard of total hair care in the newly designed and advanced salon at TripleOne Somerset.

JHGC don’t make wigs, nor perform hair weaves or hair transplants. Instead JHGC are engaged in constant research and efforts with the singular aim of restoring customers’ own hair. Through the efforts, JHGC have acquired the first ever Japanese patents in the field of hair growth and have successfully yielded tangible hair growth results for over 30 years.

One of the innovative hair care methods includes the use of IGF-1 (Insulin-like Growth Factor 1), which is capable of promoting hair growth and hair restoration. As human own body’s IGF-1 is depleted due to stress and aging, it will lead to thinning hair. Therefore, it is important to increase the amount of IGF-1 in the body as that helps prevent hair loss and promotes hair restoration.

In the future, JHGC shall continue to delve deeper into the causes of hair loss and persist in the unwavering development of scientific and comprehensive methods for even better hair growth. JHGC will also strive to provide support for those who dream of restoring their own hair, not just in Japan but also in Singapore and throughout Asia.

HOUSTON, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/– Air China, the exclusive national flag carrier for the People’s Republic of China, begins its four weekly nonstop services between Beijing Capital International Airport (PEK) in Beijing, China and George Bush Intercontinental Airport in Houston, Texas today.

The inaugural flight from Beijing, CA 995, arrived at 3:40 on July 11th to a Texas-sized welcome which included a traditional water cannon salute. Houston Mayor Annise Parker was on hand to greet the delegation from China led by Ms. Yinxiang Wang, Co-Chairwoman of Air China Limited; Chinese Consul General for Texas and seven U.S. southern states and Puerto Rico, Ms. Erwen Xu; and, former Houston Rockets star and now Houston’s Honorary Goodwill Ambassador, Yao Ming.

“Houston continues to enhance its position as a key global gateway and the arrival of Air China speaks volumes about the potential for even more growth in the future,” said Mayor Annise Parker. “The cultures and economies of Beijing and Houston continue to draw closer together than ever before and nonstop air service between the two cities will help both sides maximize the benefits associated with new partnerships and greater connectivity.”

With the launch of the nonstop service, Houston becomes Air China’s fifth gateway in North America, joining Los Angeles, New York, San Francisco and Vancouver. Air China will operate inside Terminal D at George Bush Intercontinental Airport, Houston’s gateway for all foreign carriers.

“As the only airline that provides direct connection between Houston and the south central region of the United States and China via Beijing, we are honored to be the cultural, social and economic bridge between our two great destinations. This new service demonstrates Air China’s commitment to expanded connectivity for the mutual benefits of our countries and people,” Ms. Wang stated.

Houston and Beijing have enjoyed a strong relationship for several decades. China’s paramount leader, the late Deng Xiaoping, visited Houston during his historic trip to the United States in 1979.

“The entire Houston region will benefit from this new Air China flight, both economically and from a cultural standpoint,” said Houston Aviation Director Mario Diaz. “Four weekly nonstop flights between the two destinations will not only strengthen the business ties between Houston and Beijing but will also enhance the level of cultural enrichment and exchange that already exists between these two dynamic cities.”

Air China will operate the nonstop flights, CA 996, from Houston to Beijing on Mondays, Wednesdays, Fridays and Sundays, departing at 1:00 AM local time and arriving in Beijing at 4:50 AM local time, next day. The chart below shows the schedule of the new service.

Investor Central Honoured at Asian Publishing Awards for RealityCheck(TM) Reports

leave a comment »

Wins Excellence Award for “Content Development: Expressing Editorial Personality Across Channels”

SINGAPORE and MANILA, Philippines, July 12, 2013 /PRNewswire/ — Investor Central, the news service which keeps your investments honest, is proud to announce it has been honoured at the Asian Publishing Awards in Manila tonight for its RealityCheck reports on Singapore and Malaysian-listed companies.

It won the Excellence Award for “Content Development: Expressing Editorial Personality Across Channels”.

Investor Central is satisfying investors’ increasing demand for insights by “asking the questions that need to be asked” of the listed companies it reports on.

This accolade follows the Asian Publishing Awards last year, at which it won the “Best Example of Content Leadership” Award for its “Dog or Darling” IPO reviews.

Investor Central reporter Ashish Saxena also won Most Promising Journalist award from the Securities Investors Association (Singapore) in 2012.

“We are overjoyed to have won Asian Publishing Awards for three consecutive years,” said Mark Laudi, Executive Editor at Investor Central and Managing Director of Hong Bao Media (Holdings) Pte Ltd, which owns and operates the service.

“Investor Central is changing the way investors view the stock market,” he said. “We ask the questions that need to be asked of companies — and we publish those questions even if we do not receive replies.

“In doing so, we are encouraging investors to think differently about the companies they have invested in.

“Our ultimate aim is to build trust in the stock market, and this can only come from honest, candid reporting,” he said.

The OECD’s annual “Corporate Governance In Asia” report, which tracks progress and challenges, has highlighted for some years the need for markets to “promote free and vigorous investigation” of the capital markets by news organisations.

“Investor Central is doing its part to fill this need in a responsible way,” Laudi said.

Coincidentally, a day earlier The Australian newspaper reported[1] on SGX-listed Innopac Holdings’ takeover of ASX-listed Merlin Diamonds, with two attributions to Investor Central’s article on the same subject as source material.

Meantime, Hong Bao Media’s investor education series “Sector Savvy” won in the category of “Best Multimedia Campaign by Corporate Advertiser”.

The series was commissioned to raise awareness and educate retail investors about the diverse range of industry sectors represented on the Singapore stock market.

This year’s Awards attracted 171 entries from 8 countries.
