Marcus Hiles – DFW Business Expansion Driving Growth Across Texas

The Impacts of Recent Economic Booms and How the City is Adopting Change

DALLAS, March 02, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Dallas made headline after headline in 2017 as one of the most growth oriented metropolitan areas in the nation. “Although the city has always been known for its sprawling commercial landscape and diverse business community; the level of growth experienced by the state as a whole last year further positioned it as a top place to live and invest in 2018,” states Marcus Hiles, a Dallas based property developer and successful entrepreneur.

As research recently published goes on to highlight; Texas rounded out last year leading growth in population, construction, business expansion and relocation across the US.

In fact, last year Texas ranked second across the nation in top locations driving new residents, with Dallas as the most popular metropolitan area in state.

The reasons behind these upward trends focus around the state’s overall appeal to residents and businesses looking for an affordable, accommodating, and quality area to set down roots and seek out opportunities.

Along with the growth that can be seen across the DFW community, implications from the change have followed suit. Challenging the city’s ability to sustain this economic spike falls primarily in the following categories:

  • Commercial Infrastructure
  • Housing and Rental Markets
  • Roadway Systems
  • Employment Opportunities

Through an increased need for supporting business resources, heightened property demand, congested roadways and ultimately continuously growing interest from companies and residents who want to make Dallas their home; the city has had to adopt fundamental change in order to keep pace with this expansion.

Steps are being taken to catch up with the seemingly endless demand in the area that is projected to maintain this growth throughout 2018. See how the state is positioning itself to remain a leading location in the US in the full article on marcushiles.net.

Axiom Foods Awarded First ‘Method Of Use’ Patent For Oryzatein® Rice Protein

Licensing Opportunities Offered to Manufacturers To Use Clinically Studied Claims

LOS ANGELES, March 01, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Axiom Foods, Inc. (“Axiom”) has been awarded its first application patent for any rice protein ever, U.S. Patent No. 9,820,504 for its Oryzatein® rice protein; Axiom Foods is one of the largest makers of rice and pea protein ingredients. Allowed as of November 11, 2017, the “method of use” protection grants exclusive right to Axiom to use the clinically-shown product claims for multiple versions of Axiom’s Oryzatein® organic brown rice protein, specifically: increased muscle mass, increased strength, increased power output, a decrease in fat to muscle ratio, increased VO2 max, and increased endurance. This is the first of multiple patents pending for Axiom’s Oryzatein® rice protein, with clinical studies to support them. Any rice protein manufacturers and finished product manufacturers using other rice proteins in conjunction with any of the above muscle and endurance-related claims in sports formulations, will be in violation of the patent and Axiom will enforce infringement to the maximum extent of the law.

The now protected Axiom’s Oryzatein® product claims are based on clinical trials which showed that Oryzatein® brown rice protein now equals animal-based whey protein in muscle building, maintenance and recovery.  Other clinical trials using Oryzatein® have shown that the muscle-building amino acid, leucine, absorbs faster than other rice proteins and whey proteins. The trials were published in the Nutrition Journal in 2013, the Journal of Nutrition & Health Sciences in 2014 and the International Journal of the Society of Sports Nutrition in 2017.

Axiom Foods will offer licensing opportunities for manufacturers to use the patented claims when formulating with Oryzatein® brown rice protein; information about how to make these claims using Oryzatein® can be requested by emailing info@axiomfoods.com and patent information can be found at axiomfoods.com/patents.

“We expect four other patents to be issued shortly, with another 18-pending application and process patents,” said David Janow, the inventor of Oryzatein® rice protein and CEO of Axiom Foods. “One is a U.S. patent and three are foreign patents for Australia, China, and Hong Kong. With exploding demand for plant proteins being used throughout the world and Axiom being a global innovator, producer and supplier, I feel strongly that solid legal protection and a smart sharing of our innovations serve as an important balance to our success.”

About Axiom Foods: A Los Angeles based maker of plant proteins, Axiom is on the cutting edge of technology, involved in new plant-based ingredient development, clinical trials, education and affecting change in the global food supply. Axiom brings compassion to the food business by showing that animals are no longer necessary to build muscle. The global innovator is at the forefront of peas and rice becoming the new meat.

Iraqi lawmakers seek timetable for withdrawal of foreign troops

Iraq’s parliament on Thursday adopted a resolution calling for a timeline for the pullout of foreign troops.

Iraqi Parliament Speaker office said that Iraq is grateful for other countries’ help in fighting ISIS but wants the Iraqi governments to establish a timetable for the withdraw of foreign troops.

A US-led coalition involving 74 nations and international organizations was set up in 2014 to help defeat ISIS in Iraq. The coalition said in February that its members already downsized their forces after ISIS-controlled territories in Iraq were liberated.
