Women who regularly consume sugary soft drinks have a higher risk of endometrial cancer after the menopause, a new study has found.

Deanna Moore's insight:

Graham Player Ph.D.'s curator insight, November 25, 2013 5:04 AM

A study carried out at the University of Minnesota and published in Cancer Epidemiology, Biomarkers & Prevention reports a link between high consumption of sugar-sweetened beverages and endometrial cancer risk.

In the study, the researchers categorized sugary drinks consumption patterns of the women into quintiles, ranging from zero (the lowest quintile) to 60.5 servings per week (the highest quintile). Of the 23,039 women in the study, 506 developed type I and 89 type II endometrial cancers.

The team also assessed whether the consumption of sugar-free soft drinks, sweets and baked goods, and starch might be associated with endometrial cancer risk. No link was identified.

Coca-Cola extends loyalty rewards to social media actions - Mobile Marketer - Strategy | public relations | Scoop.it

NEW YORK – A Coca-Cola executive at the Mobile Marketing Association’s SM2 conference said the company is releasing a new platform today that will integrate social media action into the company's rewards program.

 

In the “Create Buzz: Find your Brand’s Voice in Mobile: Success Strategies to Stay Ahead of the Competition” session, the executive went through Coca-Cola’s mobile strategy and the company’s goals looking forward. In addition to mentioning the new social platform, she also discussed the company's goals of consolidating all of its applications into one container app.

 

"A lot of the work I’ve been doing is through the My Coke Rewards loyalty program," said Zoe Glade, senior digital marketing strategist of digital platforms at Coca-Cola, Atlanta. "We’re launching a new platform, a beta, Thursday, so the idea is that we’ve gone [away] from this very transactional component.

Coke moves from a transactional based loyalty program to one based on social interactions via #mobile apps. Is this the beginning of a trend for #brands?

Eric_Determined / Eric Silverstein's curator insight, September 26, 2013 10:52 AM

CocaCola realized they needed to simplify their mobile reach, and avoid confusion with customers:

 

"If consumers enter the App store, there are dozens of apps fromCoca-Cola brands. Yet, the company noticed that first-time log-ins were 20 percent higher than multiple logins, showing that the company could do better at providing relevant and engaging material within the apps.

Ms. Glade also admitted that the reviews for the company’s apps are not stellar right now. She said that one of the key takeaways for her department is that they need to listen to consumers to create a better app experience."

Coca-Cola Starts Local Production in Myanmar

Inauguration of Bottling Plant Part of Planned $200 Million Investment in Myanmar Creating 22,000 Jobs Over Five Years

YANGON, Myanmar - Tuesday, June 4th 2013 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- For the first time in more than 60 years, Coca-Cola is being bottled in Myanmar. Muhtar Kent, Chairman and CEO of The Coca-Cola Company, today attended the ceremonial inauguration of a bottling plant in Crystal Springs, Hmawbi Township. The facility is the first to locally bottle Coca-Cola since the Company re-entered Myanmar last year. The historic event continues the long-term commitment of The Coca-Cola Company to generate a lasting positive impact by manufacturing, distributing, selling and hiring through its local business in Myanmar.

 “As we grow as a local business in Myanmar, we are committed to creating economic value and building sustainable communities,” said Kent. “For the people of Myanmar, Coca-Cola embodies the optimism of a bright future, with the promise of better days and better lives ahead. We are privileged to be a part of their journey.”

After the lifting of sanctions, The Coca-Cola Company became one of the first U.S. companies to be awarded an investment permit under Myanmar’s new Foreign Investment Law. The inauguration of the Coca-Cola plant is a tangible demonstration of Coca-Cola’s planned $200 million investment over the next five years. The capital investment will increase production capacity, grow logistics including sales and distribution operations, and improve marketing and people capabilities.

Through its local presence, The Coca-Cola Company will contribute to Myanmar’s economic and social success by investing in local manufacturing, employing local people, engaging local suppliers and distributors and supporting community investment programs. This investment will stimulate job creation and Coca-Cola estimates that it will create more than 22,000 job opportunities across the entire value chain over the next five years.

At the inauguration, Kent was joined by Madeleine Albright, former U.S. Secretary of State and Chair of Albright Stonebridge Group, His Excellency U Myint Swe, Chief Minister of Yangon Region, officers of Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd, the local Coca-Cola bottling partner and other representatives of Coca-Cola in Myanmar.

“As a proud Myanmar citizen, I am honored to be part of this momentous occasion for Myanmar and Coca-Cola,” said Daw Shwe Cynn, Vice Chairman, Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.

“We are excited to join our strong local expertise and passionate employees with the world’s number one brand and Coca-Cola’s world-class business capability. Together we have a positive future for our business, for our community and for the people of Myanmar,” said Mr Thureign Win, Vice Chairman Pinya Manufacturing Co. Ltd.

The Coca-Cola Company’s well-established global standards for corporate ethics are being incorporated into Coca-Cola’s business practices in Myanmar. This includes strict adherence to its global human and workplace rights policy, supplier guiding principles, code of business conduct and anti-bribery policies.

Apart from ethical economic development, The Coca-Cola Company aims to provide growth and development opportunities for the people of Myanmar. As part of this commitment, The Coca-Cola Foundation is working with Pact, a respected non-government organization, to implement Swan-Yi, a three-year program to empower nearly 25,000 Myanmar women focusing on financial literacy, entrepreneurship and business management. Since the program commenced in July 2012, 10,000 women have been empowered to start their own businesses.

Coca-Cola and Sprite in 425ml plastic bottles with uniquely scripted Myanmar labels are being produced in Myanmar, with local production of the iconic glass contour bottle (300ml) and aluminum can expected in the coming weeks. Completing the portfolio is imported Coca-Cola Zero (can). Coca-Cola aims to reach more than 100,000 outlets across the country in the next six months through increased production and distribution capacity, including a second existing plant in Hlaing Thar Yar.

University of South Florida Police investigating sexual battery that took place in dorm on campus (VIDEO) | public relations | Scoop.it

Tampa, Fl. - Students at the University of South Florida are on edge this morning after learning a student was attacked inside a dorm on Wednesday evening. The suspect is still on the loose.

 

The sexual battery happened at Kappa Hall. It houses 246, first year students. It's coed by suite. There are eight students to a suite. In the parking lot outside of the dorm, there is one of those blue emergency lights.

 

On Wednesday, USF Police got a report of a sexual battery that took place at Kappa Hall. A student said a man sexually battered her around 6:50 in the evening. We talked to a student who lives in this dorm. She says she found out about it through an email at a friends' apartment. She went back to her dorm and says police were everywhere.

 

The victim described the suspect as white, about 18-22 years in age, between 5'8 and 6 feet tall and about 180 pounds with a muscular build and short black or brown shaggy hair. She says he was wearing flip flops, green cargo shorts and a dark gray T-shirt.

London terrorist behind ‘liquid bomb plot’ takes appeal to Strasbourg

London terrorist behind ‘liquid bomb plot’ takes appeal to Strasbourg | public relations | Scoop.it

A terrorist from east London described as the mastermind behind the ‘liquid bomb plot’ is trying to have his conviction quashed on human rights grounds.

 

Abdulla Ahmed Ali, from Walthamstow, was jailed in 2006 for his part in one of the largest terrorist plots ever discovered in Britain,

The discovery of his plan, which used a home-made hydrogen peroxide bomb disguised as a soft drink to blow up planes, led to urgent international restrictions on carrying fluids on aircraft.

Ali is taking his case to the European Court of Human Rights arguing his human rights were infringed, claiming the jury were prejudiced by the media coverage of his trial before he was sentenced to life in prison for conspiracy to murder.

He recruited friends and associates to act as suicide bombers and recorded martyrdom videos at a flat which was bugged by the security services.

The targets were seven flights from London to North America, which if successful could have exceeded the carnage of the September 11 attacks, his trial heard.

Chris Grayling, the Justice Secretary, told The Sunday Telegraph the case highlighted why there was an urgent need for reforms to human rights laws, and how the Strasbourg court was increasingly willing to interfere in Britain’s justice system.

“This yet a further example of why things cannot go on as they are”, he said.

“It is unacceptable to have a situation in which claims to the European Court of Human Rights are actually being used to undermine our justice system.

“Our justice system is one of the best in the world and the Strasbourg court has no business telling us how to run it.”

The European court cannot overturn Ali’s conviction but could pave the way a fresh appeal in the British courts.
