Dais Analytic Corporation Featured on PBS

PBS’s Quest Program Highlights Dais’s Products, Technologies and Their Environmental Impact ODESSA, FL–(Marketwired – June 18,  2017) – Dais Analytic Corporation (OTCQB: DLYT), a commercial nanotechnology materials business selling its industry-changing nanomaterial technology into the worldwide water, air and energy markets, announced today that the Company and its key products were recently featured in a segment of the Public Broadcasting System’s “Quest” program.  Quest is a nationwide monthly PBS program capturing the latest breakthroughs in science, technology and education.  Quest’s segment on Dais covered the company’s disruptive Aqualyte™ Moisture Transfer Membrane, and showcased two products: ConsERV™: a Heating, Ventilation, and Air-Conditioning (“HVAC”) product, and NanoClear™: a nanomaterial based process able to produce high quality potable water from severely contaminated industrial wastewater.  “PBS used the power of television to reach a key target audience for Dais’s products at work and at home. Products which have unparalleled energy efficiency, lower environmental impact(s), and generally greater lifetime(s). The segment was clear – Dais is selling products thought to have efficiencies and other market benefits often not possible with products using today’s latest technologies and architecture”, said Brian C. Johnson, Chief Technology Officer of Dais. Quest highlighted the company’s ConsERV product that captures energy found in a building’s exhaust air using it to precondition the incoming fresh air before it reaches the heating and/or cooling system.  In its class, ConsERV offers some of the highest energy savings, a lower emissions profile, and healthier and more productive indoor environment. There are more than 25,000 ConsERV units installed world-wide in diverse uses such as 42 of Florida’s 67 county’s school districts, and in the larger homes found in a 20,000 Passive Home project in Anhui Province, China. NanoClear was highlighted next showing how the Aqualyte material selectively transfers water molecules through a solid membrane from one side of the membrane to the other: no high...

Air vs Sea: Is there a modal shift in cold chain logistics?

  There are numerous reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit. Overall the global cold chain market remains highly competitive and fragmented. Innovations in big data and the Internet of Things could transform asset utilisation and the protection of sensitive cargo across the supply chains. 05 June 2017, Bath, UK: Ti is pleased to announce that its latest report, Cold Chain Logistics 2017, is now available to download. Cold Chain Logistics 2017 offers insight into the complex, but potentially lucrative, nature of temperature-controlled supply chains. The market continues to grow as new cold chains are created as a result of the buying power of rising middle classes in China and other developing countries, and by new demands for healthier and higher quality products. At the same time, however, restrictions on pharmaceutical production and growing consumer awareness of food safety is pushing the tightening of government regulations on temperature-controlled supply chains. As a result, reefer container technology has seen improvements in recent years. Not only can reefers control temperature more accurately, but they also monitor humidity, light and shocks. The visibility this provides has helped improve the quality of the reefers by encouraging further innovation. This allows newer reefers to keep perishable goods for longer, meaning a shorter travel time is a less important factor. Shipping lines with a stake in cold chain logistics are undoubtedly benefiting from breakthrough capabilities in reefer container technology. There are numerous anecdotal reports of cargo switching to ocean freight from air cargo, including certain pharmaceutical products, flowers and fruit. Ti’s Quantitative Analyst, Andrew Ralls, however explained, “Air freight carriers will need to innovate in the same way ocean freight carriers have done, though strong global trade of agricultural products such as trees & flowers, vegetables and fruits, is set to continue and this will...

The Growing Role of Chatbots in Healthcare

They are not doctors (yet), but well-trained bots can get patients to engage more in their care, helping to close the $300 billion ‘adherence gap’ in taking pills and following orders, say experts at Earley Information Science roundtable No one would confuse them with young interns or seasoned surgeons, but chatbots are becoming the newest addition to medical teams. Hospitals and other providers, as well as insurers, are starting to employ these digital workers to remind patients to take their medicine, to monitor life signs and to track mountains of data across patient groups that could produce breakthrough insights about diseases and treatments. Already, consumers can choose from among dozens of bots that provide “care” as soon as they are downloaded.   Help from the bots is critically needed – the lack of patient adherence to prescribed medications and to post-procedure instructions is putting tremendous strains on both providers and payers. Avoidable medical spending exceeds $300 billion a year, according to a recent study by CapGemini. But for bots to become major players in closing the adherence gap, and to deliver on other health-care and cost-saving fronts, their human bosses have to understand their capabilities while also appreciating their limitations, according to a panel of artificial intelligence (AI) and knowledge management experts at an Executive Roundtable discussion hosted on April 12 by Earley Information Science Corp. (EIS), a leading consulting firm focused on organizing information for business impact. The bots can greatly improve patient experience, the panelists said, and in the process improve adherence and outcomes. But the spread and acceptance of bots has been slowed by regulatory restrictions, insurance rules and privacy concerns that still have to be addressed, the experts added. And, they noted, because of AI’s limitations in understanding human language, the bots have to be seen as very junior members of the team, and a...

“AFFIRMATIVE ACTION UNDER TRUMP– WHERE CAN IT GO?” ask former White House spokesman Robert Weiner and policy analyst Paula Hong.

(Washington, DC)–Minorities should remain hopeful under the Trump administration, but mist overcome serious obstacles, argue Robert Weiner and Paula Hong in an op-ed just released in the Michigan Chronicle, named twelve times as the #1 African-American newspaper in America. . Weiner and Hong begin, “Few remember but in December 2015, presidential candidate Donald Trump called Supreme Court Justice Antonin Scalia out during his campaign, saying he, “did not like” Scalia’s belief that minorities, specifically African Americans, would be better off attending ‘slower-track schools’—disregarding affirmative action’s purpose to provide minorities with opportunities.” They proceed, “The hope for minorities that President Trump would remain ‘fine with affirmative action’ was short-lived with Trump’s appointment of Betsy DeVos on February 7, 2017–who denied 77 universities funding requests on Thursday, May 25, 2017 for inadequate ‘formatting rules’ which she blamed Obama for creating.” They continue, “The contradictory decisions left minorities despondent about the increasingly right wing influenced Court and White House on issues such as education, health care, small business support, food aid and police reforms.” They state, “The New York Times on May 28, 2017 and the Washington Post on May 29, 2017 had lead stories titled ‘Minority Advocates Say Trump’s Budget Will Hurt Their Causes’ and ‘Trump administration plans to minimize civil rights efforts in agencies’ following the crisis of President Trump’s proposed budget which would reduce agencies’ civil rights advocacy.” They add, “Minority protections could still garner strength through victories elsewhere, however, such as the Court’s recent decision to turn down a North Carolina case on May 15, 2017 that targeted ‘African-Americans with almost surgical precision” during voter registration according to Circuit Judge Diana Gribbon Motz.’” They exclaim, “Michigan has had an intricate history of approved then overturned then re-approved bans on the issue of affirmative action in college admission. The decision by the Supreme Court on April 22, 2014 to...
