    ( May 29, 2013 -- IMD, a top-ranked global business school based in Switzerland, today announced its 25th anniversary world competitiveness rankings. In addition to ranking 60 economies for 2013, the IMD World Competitiveness Center also looks at the winners and losers since its creation.

    Professor Stéphane Garelli, director of the IMD World Competitiveness Center, said: "While the euro zone remains stalled, the robust comeback of the US to the top of the competitiveness rankings, and better news from Japan, have revived the austerity debate. Structural reforms are unavoidable, but growth remains a prerequisite for competitiveness. In addition, the harshness of austerity measures too often antagonizes the population. In the end, countries need to preserve social cohesion to deliver prosperity."

    Highlights of the 2013 ranking

    The US has regained the No. 1 spot in 2013, thanks to a rebounding financial sector, an abundance of technological innovation and successful companies.

    China (21) and Japan (24) are also increasing their competitiveness. In the case of Japan, Abenomics seems to be having an initial impact on the dynamism of the economy.

    In Europe, the most competitive nations include Switzerland (2), Sweden (4) and Germany (9), whose success relies upon export-oriented manufacturing, diversified economies, strong small and medium enterprises (SMEs) and fiscal discipline. Like last year, the rest of Europe is heavily constrained by austerity programs that are delaying recovery and calling into question the timeliness of the measures proposed.

    The BRICS economies have enjoyed mixed fortunes. China (21) and Russia (42) rose in the rankings, while India (40), Brazil (51) and South Africa (53) all fell. Emerging economies in general remain highly dependent on the global economic recovery, which seems to be delayed.

    In Latin America, Mexico (32) has seen a small revival in its competitiveness that now needs to be confirmed over time and by the continuous implementation of structural reforms.

    A 25th anniversary perspective on World Competitiveness

    In 1989, the IMD World Competitiveness Yearbook had a split ranking. The most competitive advanced economies were Japan, Switzerland and the Netherlands. Among emerging markets, Singapore, Hong Kong and Malaysia led the way. Globalization had not yet kicked in. China, Russia and several other nations (some of which did not exist back then) were not included.

    By 1997, the world of competitiveness had become increasingly global, and IMD first produced a unified ranking including both advanced and emerging economies. Here are the countries that have risen and fallen the most since then:

    Winners since 1997 (+ 5 or more ranks):
    China, Germany, Israel, Korea, Mexico, Poland, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan

    Losers since 1997 (- 5 or more ranks):
    Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Finland, France, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Japan, Luxembourg, Netherlands, New Zealand, Philippines, Portugal, South Africa, Spain, United Kingdom and Venezuela.


    - The US, Singapore and Canada, although not in the "winners" list, have very stable and enduring competitiveness models that rely on long-term advantages such as technology, education and advanced infrastructure.

    - In Europe, Switzerland, Sweden and Germany share the same recipe for success: exports, manufacturing, diversification, competitive SMEs and budget discipline.

    - In Asia, China's success has had a pull effect on the region's competitiveness, prompting many Asian economies to redirect their exports from the US and Europe to other emerging markets. - Mexico and Poland are seeing a revival in competitiveness that will need to be confirmed over time.


    - Europe has lost ground and accounts for more than half of the "losers" since 1997.

    - The UK and France in particular are losing their dominant position and competitive clout, while The Netherlands, Luxembourg and Finland need to adapt their competitiveness models to a changing environment.

    - In Southern Europe Italy, Spain, Portugal and Greece are all lagging behind. They did not diversify their industry enough or control public spending and are now facing austerity programs.

    - The fate of Ireland and Iceland shows that competitiveness needs to be sustainable, and that uncontrolled fast expansion can also lead to disaster.

    - Latin America has been disappointing, with larger economies such as Chile, Brazil, Argentina and Venezuela all losing ground and being challenged by the emerging competitiveness of Asian nations.

    Professor Garelli added: "Generalizations are, however, misleading. True, Europe's competitiveness is declining, but Switzerland, Sweden, Germany and Norway are shining successes. Latin America is disappointing, but there are great global companies all over that region. Brazil, Russia, India, China and South Africa are immensely different in their competitiveness strategies and performance, but the BRICS remain lands of opportunities."

    "In the end, the golden rules of competitiveness are simple: manufacture, diversify, export, invest in infrastructure, educate, support SMEs, enforce fiscal discipline, and above all maintain social cohesion," concluded Professor Garelli.

    The IMD World Competitiveness Center is a part of IMD
    IMD is a top-ranked business school. We are the experts in developing global leaders through high-impact executive education. Why IMD? We are 100% focused on real-world executive development. We offer Swiss excellence with a global perspective. And we have a flexible, customized and effective approach. Published since 1989, the World Competitiveness Yearbook is recognized as the leading annual report on the competitiveness of nations.

    SUPERIOR, CO ( May 29, 2013 -- New Software Application For CPAP Equipment Providers Enters Beta Testing Phase With Promise To Improve Patient Experience While Reducing Overhead By 80% Or More

    CPAP Horizon Project announced today that it has opened its ManageMyCPAP software application to beta users.

The ultimate aim of ManageMyCPAP is to improve patient satisfaction and adherence to therapy while, at the same time, reducing overhead and increasing revenue for CPAP equipment providers.

    "I founded CPAP Horizon Project with one primary goal: to improve the results of the current CPAP therapy system. ManageMyCPAP, our first major project, is a big step in that direction. We believe we can help our customers deliver a superior patient experience and, through interactive technology and smart use of support staff, reduce overhead by 80% or more," says CPAP Horizon Project Founder, Doug Hudiburg.

    According to the company, the intent of this beta phase of the software is to work very closely with both equipment provider staff and patients to continually improve ManageMyCPAP through user feedback.

    Goshen, MA ( May 29, 2013 -- Where do you do your best work?  If you're not sure how to answer that question, chances are you need modifications in your home and office, says the author of a new book on the creative process, Inspired! How to Be More Original, Insightful and Productive in Your Work ( ). 

    "What makes for a creative work environment is going to be quite different for you, me and the fellow down the hall," says Yudkin, a noted marketing mentor and the author of 16 previous books.  "Some people need lots of hubbub and activity, while others need quiet and solitude.  Some people need the colors, light and view to be just right while others need as visually neutral a scene as possible.  Individual differences are a hallmark of personal productivity."

    Factors to consider, Yudkin notes, include air temperature, clutter, humidity, privacy, smells, textures, spaciousness and whether a workspace is always the same or variable.  Other tips on developing a more creative environment include:

    * Explore your past. Think back to your most productive times or places, and recall what your environment was like then.

    * Look for evidence in your present. Inventory what's true about the area where you work now, especially aspects that you're not aware of having deliberately set up.  "Suspend your judgments about these hints from past and present," Yudkin says.  "When you judge yourself for something that you need but others don't, it just gets in the way of your creative process."

    * Try out new options with an inquisitive spirit.  Get input from others and see how well possible solutions work for you.

    * Don't use less-than-ideal conditions as excuses.  Too often, complaints about a workspace become an element of self-sabotage.  "Yes, maybe you'd get loads more done with a standing desk, but you can also stand up on your own more now without it," Yudkin comments.

    Inspired! How to Be More Original, Insightful and Productive in Your Work provides research, stories from the history of science and invention, suggestions and up-to-the-minute techniques for improvements in creativity, problem solving, idea generation, motivation and time management.  The book is available in paperback for $19.95 at or and for $9.99 in Amazon's Kindle store or Barnes & Noble's Nook store.  For more information, go to .

    About the Author

    Author Marcia Yudkin ( is a long-time writer, marketing coach and entrepreneur known for her creativity.  She has published 16 previous books, including a Book-of-the-Month Club selection and another featured on the Oprah Winfrey Show, as well as scores of audio products and PDF reports.

    ( May 29, 2013 -- Mississippi - Spray foam insulation is completely changing the construction and contracting business as traditional insulation is being tossed out and spray foam is taking its place. In Mississippi, Dixie Foam LLC has begun administering spray foam insulation for commercial and residential purposes. As people want it, Dixie Foam provides the spray foam in Mississippi.

    People are switching to this type of insulation because it's stronger, more durable and protective of structures. Who wouldn't want to protect their home or office better? The reason spray foam works so well is because of the density of materials used. Instead of fiberglass insulation that simple sits within walls or ceiling, spray foam actually binds to trusses and the complete structure, producing a complete barrier to outside air and damaging agents such as mold and mildew.

    Contractors prefer spray foam as the insulation choice because it adds value to any home or commercial building and it maintains value much longer than fiberglass. People aren't left complaining about poor insulation after several years.

    Another reason spray foam is becoming the number one choice for insulation is because of the energy savings it provides. With energy conservation talk in the last 10 years, people can finally become energy savvy and energy saving when they let spray foam seal better and stronger.

    Before, finding a supplier of this type of insulation was difficult and hit or miss. Now, with Dixie Foam supplying spray foam insulation in Mississippi, residents of this area can finally get the insulation they've heard about and are interested in.

    Learn more about spray foam insulation and how Dixie Foam can install the insulation you need in your house or commercial building:

    Aliso Viejo, CA ( May 30, 2013 -- Recently pulled divorce statistics from online divorce cases show that wives on average earn more than their husbands. New research from the Pew Research center reports similar national findings and offers explanations and comparisons of the female income changes over time.

    According to's new end of month report of its users who filed or are filing for divorce, women out earn their soon to be ex-husbands by an average of $6,000; a wife's average annual income is $44,357.58, while the husband's is $37,720.55.

    The Pew Research center recently published similar, more expansive statistics documenting this rising trend. Summarized in a New York Times article, this new data states 40% of mothers in the U.S. are the main breadwinners for their families. In 1960, that statistic was a mere 11%. The high rise over the decades, the article explains, is most likely due to greater social acceptance of women in the workforce, the rising cost of living deeming two household incomes necessary, and the higher rate of women earning college degrees compared to men.

    Breaking down the demographics shows dramatic fluctuations of income within this group of breadwinning women, however. The Pew statistical analysis, drawn from the U.S. Census Bureau, shows that single mother breadwinners make an average of $23,000, while married women who earn more than their husbands have an average household income of $80,000. The article also says "couples in which the wife earns more report less satisfaction with their marriage and higher rates of divorce." provides online divorce forms for couples filing for an uncontested divorce process. Clients can opt for either a do-it-yourself packet, or have the forms prepared by customer support specialists. The forms may then be filed with the court with a 100% money-back guarantee of court approval.

    Ottawa, ON ( May 30, 2013 -- The new children's line of apparel from Level Six has arrived! Level Six aims to provide children (toddlers to teens) with the most comfortable and stylish apparel available while parents maintain their peace of mind knowing their child has full protection from the sun's harmful UV rays.

    What does the Level Six children's sun protection line consist of?
    The 2013 children's sun protection line features boys & girls shorts, t-shirts, sunsuits and drytops. "We are about surf and being outside. Our line of adult rash guards/sun protection tops has been so popular, the demand was there from parents who wanted something for their kids too," co-owner, Stig Larsson. "We are excited that a portion of our children's sun protection line will be available at Mountain Equipment Co-op, Sail, Gander, and other outdoor retailers across North America," co-owner, Tyler Lawlor.

    How does the children's sun protection line actually protect the child?

    More effective than sunscreen, each garment offers full protection from the moment the child puts it on - no re-application necessary! The yarn for these items is treated with a sun block before being woven. Our board shorts are made from tightly-woven, polyester-brushed microfibre. The tight weave of both of our sun protection fabrics reinforces their UPF factor, especially when wet. Both of thee elastane/polyester and microfiber fabrics are treated for chlorine and salt water resistance.

    What does the UPF Rating Mean?

    UPF stands for "ultraviolet protection factor". Our UPF 50+ rating means that no more than 1/50th of the sun's UVA and UVB rays pass through the fabric. UPF is different than the SPF (sun protection factor) rating found on sunscreens because SPF measures the amount of time it takes for sun-exposed skin to redden, while UPF measures the amount of UV radiation that penetrates a fabric and reaches the skin. UVB rays are the type that cause sunburn on the surface layer of the skin, while UVA rays penetrate beneath the skin's surface and accelerate skin's aging.

    About Level Six:

    Level Six paddling gear and apparel company originated in 1997 by Olympic and National Canoe and Kayak team members, Tyler Lawlor and Stig Larsson. The company is based in Ottawa, Ontario, Canada. Level Six products can be found throughout North America with distribution in Europe, Japan, Russia and Australia.
