Non-Woven Industries’ net profit rose to $3.8 million for the second quarter from $840, 000 for the corresponding quarter. CEO Shlomo Liran leaves for personal reasons /Photo Eyal Itzhar. In addition to publishing its financial report for the second quarter of 2013, the company announced that it will build another production line in Russia, at an investment of $60 million, and that CEO Shlomo Liran, who has served in the post since 2010, will soon leave for personal reasons. Share price fell 4.8% today to NIS 3.24, giving a market cap of NIS 1 billion. Fabrics for manufacturers of baby diapers, adult incontinence, and feminine hygiene products, posted $82.6 million revenue for the second quarter, 3% more than for.
The low rate of growth was mainly due to slower growth in demand in China, and longer than expected approval processes by customers for products from the company’s third production line in China. Net profit rose to $3.8 million for the second quarter from $840, 000 for the corresponding quarter. Financing expenses were nearly halved to $3.2 million for the second quarter from $6.3 million for the corresponding quarter. Net profit was $7.1 million in the first half. Also announced that it will build a second production for.
The new production, which will begin operating in first half. Of 2015, will increase the company’s production capacity in Russia by 18, 000 tons a year to 28, 000 tons a year.

Despite the global popularity of online gaming, no one’s created an official college-only league. On a frigid february day in Newton, teams of Harvard and Boston University students battled one another on the playing field, mauling, slashing, and shooting their way to victory. Instead of jockstraps and helmets, they wore axes and magic wands, and many had taken the form of skimpily clad sorceresses or shapeshifting foxlike creatures. Yes, the action was virtual, but the competition was very real-players furiously mashed at their keyboards while shouting commands and arguing about strategy. Both teams are members of the brand-new American Video Game League, launched last year by 25-year-old Victor Suski, also the founder of a state-of-the-art e-sport venue, the Gaming Center, in Newton.
In August, Amazon bought the video-game-streaming site Twitch TV for $1.1 billion. As for Suski’s custom-built Newton venue, it features two soundproofed, five-computer booths; a viewing lounge; and an Internet broadcast facility equipped with microphones, game monitors, and feeds from wall-mounted cameras to capture and stream the gamers in action. Suski’s goal is to make the AVGL the NCAA for college-level e-sports, and to make his center a major hub. For five days in January, the center hosted the Evil Geniuses team as they prepared for the Dota 2 Asia Championship, where they won first place and $1.2 million.
Non-invasive temperature assessment at different tissue types based on average grey-level from B-mode ultrasonic images: AIP Conference Proceedings: Vol 1433, No 1
The average grey-levels calculated from B-Mode images were assessed for non-invasive temperature estimation in a porcine tissue sample containing two different tissue types, fat and muscle. The porcine sample was subjected to heating and cooling procedures with temperature varying from 35°C to 42°C. The sample was continuously imaged with an ultrasoundscanner, and simultaneously the temperature was measured at each 5 seconds using Type-T thermocouples. The result shows that the average grey-level/temperature relations are different for the two studied regions, where the muscle tissue tends to present a bigger AVGL variation than the fat tissue considering the same temperature variation. The average grey-level/temperature functions estimated for each tissue region presented fitting errors inferior to 0.21°C, indicating that it might be possible to track temperature changes from both tissues using AVGL.
This result is innovative since it suggests that using the same B-mode image and an average grey-level/temperature function to each region it is possible to estimate non-invasively temperature variations from different tissue regions in the same tissue sample. Future work includes the investigation of the spatial limits of these average grey-level/temperature functions.
