Modern Drama Meets Baltimore History At The Enoch Pratt House

BALTIMORE (PRWEB) February 12, 2015

When Enoch Pratt lived at this fashionable Monument Street address, never in his dreams could he envision that one day, a group of avant-garde theater performers would help to revive it, says Maryland Historical Society President Burt Kummerow. Closed to the public for over a decade, the Enoch Pratt House (201 W. Monument Street, Baltimore, MD, 21201) will temporarily re-open in March, 2015, as the venue for The Mesmeric Revelations! of Edgar Allan Poe, an immersive theater project. Thanks to the generous support of PNC, the building, which is listed on the National Register as part of the Mount Vernon Place National Historic Landmark District, will serve as a temporary setting for the performance.

As a leading supporter of Baltimores cultural and arts organizations, PNC is proud to partner with the Maryland Historical Society to reopen the doors of the Enoch Pratt House and give a new generation access to one of Baltimores cultural gems, said Will Backstrom, PNC Client & Community Relations Director. With its rich history, it is the perfect venue to host innovative arts projects that will enrich the Baltimore community.

The buildings revival during the next few years as an innovative education and arts center illustrates the connection between Baltimores rapidly growing theater scene and the revitalization of some of the citys most historic spaces. Its location could not be more ideal, says Kummerow. The Houses Monument Street address is on a main corridor between the Mount Vernon Cultural District and the Bromo Tower Arts & Entertainment District, two neighborhoods known for stunning 19th century architecture and a rapidly growing theater community. It is located at the edge of an entire block devoted to preserving and interpreting Marylands 400-year history!

Mesmeric Revelations is a new, interpretive artwork created by a collective of Baltimore performers and artists assembled by Glenn Ricci, a recipient of a 2014 Rubys artist project grant given by the Greater Baltimore Cultural Alliance. The performance features six characters representing both real-life and fictional inhabitants of Edgar Allan Poes life. Dramatic highlights will unfold on the first floor of the Pratt House and include representations of mesmerization, a ballroom scene, and a s

New AIS Report Explores the Pros and Cons of Adopting Exclusionary Formularies

Washington, DC (PRWEB) February 20, 2015

Atlantic Information Services, Inc. (AIS) is pleased to announce the publication of PBM Formulary Exclusions: Bottom-Line Strategies for Health Plans, the latest report in its Management Insight Series. Formulary exclusion where pharmacy benefit managers (PBMs) put some manufacturers in exclusive positions and remove other clinically comparable agents from their formularies have been notably adopted by Catamaran Corp., CVS Caremark Corp. and Express Scripts. The report examines the rationale behind the practice and also offers advice to self-funded plan sponsors (of any size) on how to respond.

The report addresses these and other key issues:

Savings opportunities that exist with formularies that utilize standard exclusions.
Various exclusionary models in the marketplace today.
Why some plan sponsors are choosing to build around the exclusionary model and what this involves.
How plans can adopt an exclusionary formulary without major pushback from members, as well as the clinical process and communication strategy Express Scripts employed to avoid client and member disruption.
Key questions plan sponsors should ask of their PBMs when considering whether to opt in or out of the standard exclusions and if they dont opt in, what the estimated impact to their annual rebate revenue might be.
Specific clinical protocols that need to be implemented to achieve significant cost savings while also enabling members to receive coverage for the medication they truly need, and what plans can do to ensure specialty access to medications for chronically ill members.

Global Generic Drugs Market to Grow at 12% CAGR by 2020 Forecast a New Research Report at

Dallas, Texsa (PRWEB) February 17, 2015

The research estimates that the market for generic drugs will account for nearly $ 350 Billion in revenue by the end of 2015. Despite challenges relating to quality control and legal concerns, the market is poised for significant growth in the coming years. Increased initiatives by government and healthcare service providers are one of the major trends emerging in the market. Doctors and pharmacists are encouraged to use generics and reassure patients of their quality and efficacy. The generic drugs market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 12% between 2015 and 2020, driven by growth in both established and developing markets.

The generic drugs are now finding their way into markets such as Japan. According to another report, Generic Drugs Market in Japan 2015-2019, the market in Japan is forecast to grow at a CAGR of 8.16 percent over the period 2014-2019. According to the report, the patents of many first-generation approved biopharmaceuticals are set to expire within the forecast period, leading to competition from generic drugs. As a result of the economic crisis, the development of new drugs has been hindered. Major companies in the market have allocated minimal funds for the R&D of innovative drugs. This has led to the drying up of pipeline drugs, paving the way for the Generic Drugs market.

The report comes with an associated Excel datasheet suite covering quantitative data from all numeric forecasts presented in the report.

Security Innovation Challenges the Crypto Community to Defeat NTRU

Wilmington, MA (PRWEB) February 05, 2015

Security Innovation is pleased to launch the NTRU Challenge today, February 5th, 2015. The NTRU Challenge will increase the understanding of the shortest vector problem in NTRU lattices while encouraging and stimulating further research into the security analysis of NTRU-based cryptosystems. The NTRU Challenge has been designed to provide additional information to users of NTRU public-key cryptosystems to aid in their selection of suitable key lengths for a desired level of security.

Access the challenge here:

The Challenge asks participants to compute the NTRU private keys from the given list of public keys and associated system parameters. This is the type of problem faced by hackers who wish to defeat an NTRU-based cryptosystem. The Challenge consists of several individual NTRU challenges, targeted at different security levels, some of which can be solved in a day, some in a few months and some which are considered to be computationally intractable.

The prize for the first correct solution for the 11 lower security level challenges will be $ 1,000 each, with $ 5,000 being awarded per solution for the 16 higher security level challenges. Additionally, participants who arrive at innovative and unique solutions may be chosen for induction into the NTRU Hall of Fame, an award which includes an all-expenses paid trip to a major cryptographic conference.

NTRU is based on a completely different mathematical problem from RSA and ECC – resulting in higher performance and a superior ability to withstand quantum computing attacks, and better performance at similar security levels against classical computing attacks. It is industry-vetted and commercial-ready, unlike most other lattice-based algorithms.

About NTRU Crypto


NTRU was developed in 1996 by Brown University math professors who wanted to create a superior data protection for constrained embedded and consumer electronic devices. With the growth of big data and cyber security attacks, NTRU is increasingly appealing to organizations with high-volume ecommerce and hosted services transactions that want to provide end to end encryption without sacrificing security or speed. With its extremely small footprint, high speed, future-proof security, and adoption by IEEE and X9 standards, NTRU is poised to become the de facto crypto in the post-RSA world. It has been published, reviewed in scholarly journals, and presented at Crypto, Eurocrypt, RSA Conference, and PQCrypto (Post-Quantum Cryptography).

The new signature scheme pqNTRUSign can perform ~1000 verifications per second on a 2.7 GHz machine. In contrast, ECDSA over the popular NISTp256 curve is only capable of ~480 verifications per second, based on standard, open-source, benchmarking tool SUPERCOP pqNTRUSign is provably secure against transcript attacks, like our PASS-RS. This new signature scheme illustrates our research team’s commitment to discovering fundamentally new constructs in public key cryptography and expanding the toolkit available to the cryptographic community.
