Leading aluminum extruder Taber Extrusions announces the planned addition of 7”billet molds to their extrusion billet casting facility in Gulfport, MS. Taber’s addition of the 7” molds further enhances Taber’s existing offering of extruded aluminum billet products to Taber’s newly refurbished Gulfport Casthouse.
GULFPORT, Miss. (PRWEB) October 26, 2018
Taber Extrusions, LLC is announcing the planned addition of 7”billet molds to Taber’s existing extrusion billet casting facility in Gulfport, MS. Taber’s addition of the 7” molds further enhances Taber’s existing offering of extruded aluminum billet products to Taber’s newly refurbished Gulfport Casthouse. 7” extrusion log will be available for delivery beginning in January 2019.
The addition of the 7” molds complements the existing 8”, 9”, 11”, 16”, and 20” diameter molds. The various diameters of extrusion billet will be available in 6063 and 6061 alloy chemistries as well as specialized chemistries upon request. “Taber is excited to offer extrusion logs to our fellow extruders.” says Jason Weber – VP Sales and Marketing at Taber. The Gulfport Casthouse is uniquely situated with port access as well as easy access to industrial scrap. These input factors coupled with the recently refurbished casting equipment with the LARS® in-line degassing and purification system supplies billet chemistries and consistencies which rival those of larger billet producers.
A recent article by Light Metal Age Magazine explains how the completion of Taber’s casthouse modernization increased its billet capacity by over 30%, expanded its range of high quality aluminum alloys (hard, soft, marine, aerospace, and defense) and enabled the use of more diverse scrap material in its process, allowing for the production of billet with high recycled content.
Founded in 1973, Taber Extrusions originally pioneered a process for extruding rectangular billet which enables the company to extrude solid profiles up to 31 inches wide or hollows up to 29 inches. Taber expanded with the purchase of an extrusion facility in Gulfport, MS., in 1995 which houses a cast house and two additional presses, and the fabrication area has been expanded multiple times. Today, Taber Extrusions is proud to announce the launch of expanded capabilities to include micro-extrusions and 7” billet molds.
Thank you for your continued support of Taber Extrusions, LLC. If you have any questions please visit taberextrusions.com or contact one of Taber’s Regional Sales Managers.

Research to take place in newly-designated Marine Protected Areas
CHARLESTON, S.C. (PRWEB) October 26, 2018
Today, the South Carolina Aquarium announced the start of South Carolina Aquarium Reef Research. The Reef Research studies will be conducted in newly-designated marine protected areas (MPAs) comprised of artificial reefs created by the South Carolina Department of Natural Resources (SCDNR). In partnership with SCDNR and the South Atlantic Fishery Management Council, the Aquarium has sponsored a site within the MPA, the South Carolina Aquarium Reef Research Site at Area 51.
The Aquarium Reef Site represents the benefits of MPAs, serving as both a refuge for local marine life and part of a living laboratory space for South Carolina Aquarium Reef Research. Critical scientific research that focuses on sustaining a healthy, balanced ocean for future generations will occur within SCDNR’s artificial reefs, including the Aquarium Reef Site.
“We’re thrilled to support the state in this groundbreaking research initiative, which will suggest new ways to protect vulnerable marine species from both natural and man-made pressures,” said Kevin Mills, South Carolina Aquarium President and CEO. “South Carolinians should be proud that their state is the first in the nation to pioneer this innovative approach.”
SCDNR biologists established Areas 51 and 53 as experimental sites – artificial reefs with little to no fishing pressure where they could study the abundance of reef fish and document spawning behavior. Both reefs were established on flat, sandy stretches of the seafloor, where staff added low-relief concrete structures that mimic the profile of natural reef areas. Within several years of construction, each site was home to much higher numbers of fish than fished artificial reefs in similar water depths.
“We created Area 51 and Area 53 about twenty years ago to specifically study the dynamics of artificial reefs and how they can be used to enhance our reef fish populations,” said Robert Martore, SCDNR’s Artificial Reef Coordinator. “The new federal protections should increase the natural productivity in these areas, further aiding our conservation efforts. Partnering with the South Carolina Aquarium will allow us to expand our research activities here, and the information we gather will enable us to create more effective artificial reefs in the future.”
South Carolina Aquarium Reef Research is made possible by the generosity of Scott and Jordana Snider. Mr. Snider is a natural history filmmaker and a member of the South Carolina Aquarium Board of Directors. His work takes him around the world to film some of the most elusive and endangered animals on the planet. Mrs. Snider is an accomplished wildlife photographer and works closely with South Carolina Aquarium Sea Turtle Care Center staff as a volunteer videographer. Together, the Sniders own Half Moon productions, a film and photography studio based in Charleston, S.C.
The pilot project under Reef Research will focus on the invasive lionfish population. The South Carolina Aquarium will study the effects of lionfish removal on local populations of snapper and grouper, species that compete with lionfish for prey, to determine any changes to their abundancy and diversity.

*Webcast to Commence at 7:15 p.m. CT / 8:15 p.m. ET, Saturday, November 10, 2018*BEDMINSTER, N.J. and DUBLIN, Ireland, Oct. 26, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Amarin Corporation plc (NASDAQ:AMRN), a pharmaceutical company focused on the commercialization and development of therapeutics to improve cardiovascular health, looks forward to the presentation of primary results of Amarin’s landmark cardiovascular outcomes study of Vascepa^® (icosapent ethyl), the REDUCE-IT™ study, as a late-breaker at the 2018 Scientific Sessions of American Heart Association (AHA) on November 10, 2018 in Chicago, Illinois, as previously disclosed. Amarin expects the following activities at AHA will be of most interest to Amarin investors:
1. Presentation of REDUCE-IT clinical trial results: Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 at 2:18 p.m. Central Time (CT) / 3:18 p.m. Eastern Time (ET)
2. Amarin investor/analyst conference call to discuss REDUCE-IT results: Saturday, Nov. 10, 2018 at 7:15 p.m. CT / 8:15 p.m. ET
3. Continuing medical education programs with REDUCE-IT on the agenda (the curriculum of which is developed independently of Amarin): Sunday, Nov. 11, 2018 at 6:30 p.m. CT / 7:30 p.m. ET and Monday, Nov. 12, 2018 at 6:00 a.m. CT / 7:00 a.m. ET
Presentation of REDUCE-IT Clinical Results
Presentation of REDUCE-IT primary clinical trial results is classified by the AHA as late-breaking clinical trial results and listed as Main Event 1 for timeframe described above. A link to the notice of this presentation is provided at:
The AHA makes available a live stream and archived webcast of the REDUCE-IT primary clinical trial results presentation at:
In connection with the presentation of such results, Amarin plans to issue a press release describing the trial results.
Presentation of the REDUCE-IT clinical trial results is scheduled immediately following presentation and discussion of results from a clinical trial known as VITAL. VITAL is an NIH-funded trial of vitamin D3 and 1 gram of an omega-3 mixture (prescription Lovaza) for the primary prevention of cancer and cardiovascular disease in a nationwide United States cohort of 25,874 adults not selected for elevated cardiovascular or cancer risk. Amarin does not know the results of the VITAL study. In the past, including results of the ASCEND study reported earlier this year, omega-3 mixtures have not demonstrated significant cardiovascular benefit on top of contemporary medical therapy. These results with omega-3 mixtures have not shown benefit and differ from the success reported with the unique single active ingredient in Vascepa in the REDUCE-IT study and a similar product in the JELIS study conducted in Japan.
Amarin Investor/Analyst Conference Call
Amarin today announced that it plans to hold a meeting Saturday at 7:15 p.m. CT / 8:15 p.m. ET with investors and analysts who are attending AHA to discuss the results of the trial presented earlier in the day.

No material new information is expected to be presented in these programs.
Amarin Corporation plc. is a rapidly growing, innovative pharmaceutical company focused on developing therapeutics to improve cardiovascular health. Amarin’s product development program leverages its extensive experience in lipid science and the potential therapeutic benefits of polyunsaturated fatty acids. Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) is Amarin's first FDA-approved drug and is available by prescription in the United States, Lebanon and the United Arab Emirates. Amarin’s commercial partners are pursuing additional regulatory approvals for Vascepa in Canada, China and the Middle East. For more information about Amarin, visit www.amarincorp.com.
The REDUCE-IT cardiovascular outcomes study commenced in 2011, enrolled and followed 8,179 randomized patients, and was conducted based on a special protocol assessment agreement with FDA.
REDUCE-IT is the first global cardiovascular outcomes study to prospectively evaluate the effect of Vascepa, or any therapy, in adult patients with LDL-C controlled to between 41-100 mg/dL (median baseline 75 mg/dL) by statin therapy and various cardiovascular risk factors including persistent elevated TGs between 150-499 mg/dL (median baseline 216 mg/dL) and either established cardiovascular disease (secondary prevention cohort) or diabetes mellitus and at least one other CV risk factor (primary prevention cohort). The design of the REDUCE-IT cardiovascular outcomes study was published in March 2017 in Clinical Cardiology^1 and can be found in the R&D section on the company’s website at www.amarincorp.com.
The REDUCE-IT hypothesis tested whether additional cardiovascular risk reduction beyond LDL-C controlled with statin therapy could be achieved in high risk patients with the putative cardioprotective effects of Vascepa 4 grams/day. Independent of REDUCE-IT, Amarin has worked to further support the REDUCE-IT hypothesis with published scientific findings based on various degrees of evidence that show EPA may interrupt the atherosclerotic process (e.g., plaque formation and instability) by beneficially affecting cellular functions thought to contribute to atherosclerosis and cardiovascular events and by beneficially affecting lipid, lipoprotein and inflammation biomarkers.^2, 3, 4, 5, 6
*About Cardiovascular Disease *
Worldwide, cardiovascular disease (CVD) remains the #1 killer of men and women. In the United States CVD leads to one in every three deaths – one death approximately every 38 seconds – with annual treatment cost in excess of $500 billion.^7, 8
Beyond the cardiovascular risk associated with LDL-C, genetic, epidemiologic, clinical and real-world data suggest that patients with elevated triglycerides (TG) (fats in the blood), and TG-rich lipoproteins, are at increased risk for cardiovascular disease.^9, 10, 11, 12
*About VASCEPA^® (icosapent ethyl) Capsules*
Vascepa^® (icosapent ethyl) capsules are a single-molecule prescription product consisting of the omega-3 acid commonly known as EPA in ethyl-ester form. Vascepa is not fish oil, but is derived from fish through a stringent and complex FDA-regulated manufacturing process designed to effectively eliminate impurities and isolate and protect the single molecule active ingredient. Vascepa, known in scientific literature as AMR101, has been designated a new chemical entity by the FDA. Amarin has been issued multiple patents internationally based on the unique clinical profile of Vascepa, including the drug’s ability to lower triglyceride levels in relevant patient populations without raising LDL-cholesterol levels.
Indication and Usage Based on Current FDA-Approved Label (not including REDUCE-IT results)
· Vascepa (icosapent ethyl) is indicated as an adjunct to diet to reduce triglyceride (TG) levels in adult patients with severe (≥500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia.
· The effect of Vascepa on the risk for pancreatitis and cardiovascular mortality and morbidity in patients with severe hypertriglyceridemia has not been determined.
Important Safety Information for Vascepa Based on Current FDA-Approved Label (not including REDUCE-IT results) (Includes Data from Two 12-Week Studies (n=622) (MARINE and ANCHOR) of Patients with Triglycerides Values of 200 to 2000 mg/dL)
· Vascepa is contraindicated in patients with known hypersensitivity (e.g., anaphylactic reaction) to Vascepa or any of its components.
· In patients with hepatic impairment, monitor ALT and AST levels periodically during therapy.
· Use with caution in patients with known hypersensitivity to fish and/or shellfish.
· The most common reported adverse reaction (incidence >2% and greater than placebo) was arthralgia (2.3% for Vascepa, 1.0% for placebo). There was no reported adverse reaction >3% and greater than placebo.
· Adverse events and product complaints may be reported by calling 1-855-VASCEPA or the FDA at 1-800-FDA-1088.
· Patients receiving treatment with Vascepa and other drugs affecting coagulation (e.g., anti-platelet agents) should be monitored periodically.
· Patients should be advised to swallow Vascepa capsules whole; not to break open, crush, dissolve, or chew Vascepa.
FULL VASCEPA PRESCRIBING INFORMATION CAN BE FOUND AT WWW.VASCEPA.COM.
Vascepa has been approved for use by the United States Food and Drug Administration (FDA) as an adjunct to diet to reduce triglyceride levels in adult patients with severe (≥500 mg/dL) hypertriglyceridemia. Nothing in this press release should be construed as promoting the use of Vascepa in any indication that has not been approved by the FDA.
*Forward-Looking Statements *
This press release contains forward-looking statements, including expectations regarding scientific presentation. These forward-looking statements are not promises or guarantees and involve substantial risks and uncertainties. In addition, Amarin's ability to effectively commercialize Vascepa will depend in part on its ability to continue to effectively finance its business, efforts of third parties, its ability to create market demand for Vascepa through education, marketing and sales activities, to achieve market acceptance of Vascepa, to receive adequate levels of reimbursement from third-party payers, to develop and maintain a consistent source of commercial supply at a competitive price, to comply with legal and regulatory requirements in connection with the sale and promotion of Vascepa and to maintain patent protection for Vascepa. Among the factors that could cause actual results to differ materially from those described or projected herein include the following: uncertainties associated generally with research and development, clinical trials and related regulatory approvals; the risk that sales may not meet expectations and related cost may increase beyond expectations; the risk that patents may not be upheld in patent litigation and applications may not result in issued patents sufficient to protect the Vascepa franchise. A further list and description of these risks, uncertainties and other risks associated with an investment in Amarin can be found in Amarin's filings with the U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission, including its most recent quarterly report on Form 10-Q. Existing and prospective investors are cautioned not to place undue reliance on these forward-looking statements, which speak only as of the date hereof. Amarin undertakes no obligation to update or revise the information contained in this press release, whether as a result of new information, future events or circumstances or otherwise.

· *Operated mobile pop-up store in downtown Hong Kong (October 12-21)*
· *Hong Kong residents amazed by taste and fragrance of Korean beef*
SEOUL, South Korea, Oct. 26, 2018 /PRNewswire/ -- Premium-grade Korean beef has made a strong impression on Hong Kong consumers.Hanwoo Festival Week Hosted by Hanwoo Board
From October 12 to 21, the Hanwoo Board held its first Hanwoo Festival Week in Hong Kong as part of Hong Kong's Korean Culture Month (held in October). The Hanwoo Board announced that Hanwoo Festival Week was highly successful and attracted many local residents.
Hanwoo Festival Week is the first large-scale event held in Hong Kong for the sole purpose of showcasing Korean beef, of which exports to Hong Kong began in 2015. This event offered Hong Kong consumers a chance to taste Korean beef and learn about its advantages.
Korean beef-themed mobile pop-up stores were operated from October 12 to 14 in Hong Kong's major commercial districts (Tsim Sha Tsui, Causeway Bay, Mong Kok, etc.). The pop-up stores allowed visitors to try food made from Korean beef, held quiz events, and provided informational leaflets. The visitors ranged from young single people in their 20s and 30s to families with small children. Michael Lee, a university student who visited one of the pop-up stores, said, "Unlike other types of beef, Korean beef is very juicy and has a strong, deep fragrance. Having tasted it, I now understand why it is regarded as premium-grade meat in its home country."
From October 17 to 19, a Korean beef booth was operated at the 2018 Hong Kong K-Food Fair, which was held at Tsim Sha Tsui's Avenue of Stars. Hosted by aT (Korea Agro-Fisheries & Food Trade Corporation), the Hong Kong K-Food Fair is an expo that aims to support the export of Korean agricultural, marine, and livestock products. This year, it was visited by many people who are interested in Hallyu.
The K-Food Fair was especially popular for its opening event, which featured Korean idol group Mamamoo. After Mamamoo member Hwasa mentioned that she enjoys Korean beef, the Hanwoo Board's booth was soon bustling with people wanting to take part in a taste-tasting event. Hwasa said, "I like meat in general, but I am particularly a fan of Korean beef. I love it because it's soft and melts in my mouth like ice cream!"
For the duration of Hanwoo Festival Week, Korean beef restaurants in Hong Kong offered various discounts and held giveaway events for customers who purchased Korean beef menu items. Restaurants such as Marbling, Myung Ga, MeokBang Korean BBQ & Bar, and Kim's Spoon prepared exclusive festival menu options to showcase Korean beef. One office worker who visited MeokBang Korean BBQ & Bar said, "On special occasions, I like going to Korean beef restaurants to enjoy some Korean beef BBQ. I hope that Hanwoo Festival Week introduces more people to the delicious taste of Korean beef and encourages more Hong Kong residents to come and enjoy it."
In addition, during Hanwoo Festival Week, the Hanwoo Board invited major media corporations and famous YouTubers to The Charcoal Room, a Korean beef restaurant located in Mong Kok, for its Korean Beef Butchering & Tasting event. This event was one of several hosted by the Hanwoo Board to promote Korean beef with the help of media influencers.
Hanwoo Board Chairman Min Gyeong-cheon said, "Through events like taste tests and cooking demonstrations, which gave Hong Kong residents an opportunity to experience Korean beef first hand, we were able to raise awareness of Korean beef as a premium-grade meat. In the future, we will expand our event offerings to make Korean beef a new fixture of the Hallyu movement."

· *Black pouches with tendrils that wash up on beaches are not seaweed or kelp — they're** the egg cases of fish called skates.*
· *Some of these egg cases contain live fish embryos.*
· *Holding a light up to a fresh, unhatched case will reveal the fish embryo inside.*
North Carolina's beaches are reportedly awash in rubbery black pouches with two pairs of tendrils. These aren't bits of plastic pollution, nor are they a form of seaweed: They're egg casings for a particularly weird-looking fish.
I grew up in Ohio, a state that does not border a salty sea.
So any summer that my parents crammed our family into a car and drove to the Outer Banks of North Carolina, I was in heaven. Day after day, my brother, sister, and I would play in the warm surf of the Atlantic Ocean. We met a zoo's worth of marine life during those beach excursions, including clams, crabs, copepods, fish, birds, dolphins, and jellyfish.
But there was one common yet fascinating animal we completely overlooked: a weird, rectangular object with a pair of pokey tendrils on either side.
For years I assumed these were kelp pods or some strange-looking pieces of seaweed. But they belong to mother skates.
*What skate fish are — and a cool experiment to try with their egg cases*
Skates are related to rays and sharks, and like both they have no bones — only cartilage. As adults, skates have thorny fins on top of their bodies and eat whatever small creatures they can find on the sandy ocean bottom, including shrimp and tiny fish.
Should you find a fresh skate egg case on a beach, perform this simple experiment — it will blow your mind (and likely freak out squeamish friends and family).
First, find a skate egg that is not dried to a crisp. Your best shot is to check the wrack line, where high-tide waves deposit junk from the sea. Spring storms will often rip the egg cases from the seaweed they attach to in deeper waters and wash them ashore.
Since these egg cases are made of collagen, a protein that takes forever to break down, you're likely to find many more empty ones than fresh ones. As a general rule: the more wet, slimy, bubbly, pliable, and translucent, the better.
Once you've got one in hand, grab a smartphone, turn on its LED light, and then move the egg in front of the light. If you're lucky, you will see something like this:
The pink mass is a skate embryo attached to its yolk sac.
Depending on the age of the skate egg you've found, you can sometimes see its head or a devilish tail flicking around. You might even see more than one embryo.
Dave Remsen, a bioinformaticist and scientist at the Marine Biological Laboratory (MBL) in Woods Hole, Massachusetts, showed me this little guy (or girl) when I visited the lab:"I like to show these to kids and tell them they used to look like that," Remsen told Business Insider. (It's a good joke to a scientist, since all embryonic animals look remarkably similar during early stages of development.)
Some shark species also lay egg cases, but those are much rarer to find on a beach, since mother sharks lay them in the deeper ocean.
If you don't have an LED light handy, there's a great substitute in the sky: the sun. This video shows what a skate egg case looks like when you hold it up to the light:
A post shared by Sanibel Sea School (@sanibelseaschool) on Feb 11, 2016 at 2:25pm PST
Some aquatic centers and aquariums go even further.
For example, the Aquarium of the Bay in San Francisco cuts out a panel of the egg case and super-glues on a piece of transparent plastic. That way, visitors can clearly see the embryos inside as they develop:
It can take months for embryos like these to develop, so if you're fortunate enough to find an egg case, give it a good toss back into the ocean.
Even if it doesn't hatch, it will at least make a good meal for another sea creature.
