A great market boost from vanity numbers

You’ve heard about toll free numbers lighting up a TV screen connecting a product and its company to consumers. An important source of information toll free numbers can give a specific identity to a product or company you want to have access. The opportunity led to capitalize on vanity numbers for specific companies that offer their services. An example would be 800-Company after the numeral you can prefix whatever your company name is or the product you are endorsing. By having your own unique vanity number you establish a strong market presence giving your company the needed boost. Your own vanity number will be your ticket to being easily recognized by potential customers giving them an easier time to reach you. Product boosting is strengthened through vanity numbers by giving you a specific identity much like a website. Once you establish a vanity number credibility comes into play especially for clients who are meticulous in trying to research a particular brand or company. Last but not the least it reaches out to potential customers and provides an opportunity to close more sales. Now that you’ve learned the advantages of having vanity numbers why not try customtollfree.coms offer of trying out their holiday special two months free.

The perfect cover for your tablet

In case you have an Apple IPad in your midst you might want take extra care for your special gadget. Quirky a website which specializes in innovative products for use in just about anything has released its special sturdy case for the IPad called Cloak. But it is not merely a protective case for the IPad as it doubles as a handy stand where you can use it in situations you don’t want to place it in your lap. For vertical positioning you can put the front cover of the Cloak at the back folding it and becoming a versatile plastic support brace stand. The beauty of the support is that it can be adjusted to different angles the way you want it and once you position it to landscape mode the Cloak can also facilitate it in giving you the best position for the IPad. Once you need to type the Cloak has a smaller plastic support design to give you convenience in a low landscape angle when typing. At the very best you are getting enough protection for the IPad by having a material constructed from a non-slipping silicone made from a durable plastic component including its mechanism. Protection and versatility that is what Quirkys Cloak is all about.

James R. Heath: Personalized Medicine, Molecular Diagnostics, and Cancer

James R. Heath: Personalized Medicine, Molecular Diagnostics, and Cancer

Dec 1, 2010 8:00 PM
Beckman Auditorium
FREE; no tickets or reservations required
Presented By: Caltech Committee on Institute Programs

Over the past decade, cancer drugs have evolved from chemotherapy treatments that target all fast growing cells, to drugs that are increasingly targeted to the specific molecular lesions of cancer. This trend will almost certainly accelerate into the foreseeable future. The net result is that certain patients can exhibit very rapid responses to treatments, often with fewer toxic side effects.

However, the increased precision of drug targeting has also translated into a smaller percentage of patients that respond to a given drug. This trend has heightened the importance of molecular diagnostics. Molecular diagnostics typically involves measurements of the genome, or of the proteins that are encoded by the genome, or both. In principle, molecular diagnostic information is used to match the right patient with the right drug. This trend towards targeted therapeutics that are prescribed based upon a detailed molecular knowledge of a given patient, is at the heart of the emerging world of personalized medicine.

The realization of this new world is fraught with many scientific, technical, and cultural challenges. This lecture will first provide a contextual framework for personalized medicine, and then move towards discussing state-of-the-art molecular diagnostic technologies that are just now passing through initial clinical trials. It will conclude with a look towards the future.

James R. Heath is the Elizabeth Gilloon Professor and Professor of Chemistry at Caltech.
