LONDON - Thursday, February 11th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- The GSMA has published a new report calling for the modernisation of telecommunications regulations. “A New Regulatory Framework for the Digital Ecosystem”, developed by NERA Economic Consulting for the GSMA, explores how the pace of regulatory reform has failed to match the speed of change in the digital world, in particular with the emergence of a range of internet-based services and applications and a converged digital ecosystem. The study recommends a forward-looking, technology-agnostic regulatory framework, driven by clear policy objectives around consumer protection, innovation, investment and competition.

“The telecoms regulations in place today are largely the same as those used to regulate the technologies and markets of the last century. There is no place for analogue rules in today’s dynamic digital age, where consumers face an expanded array of competitive choic ... Read more »

TOKYO - Friday, February 12th 2016 [ME NewsWire]

(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Morinaga Milk Industry Co., Ltd. (TOKYO:2264), a leading dairy product company in Japan, today unveiled new research showing that daily consumption of yogurt fortified with the company’s proprietary probiotic Bifidobacterium longum BB536 prevents the intestinal bacterial imbalance induced by an animal-based diet. BB536 maintained healthy levels of beneficial bacteria, while preventing increases of harmful levels of bacteria such as Bilophila.

Recently, studies have demonstrated the importance of maintaining balanced intestinal flora to overall health. However, the modern, fast-paced lifestyle — with its lack of sleep and exercise, irregular dietary habits and continual stress — threatens bacterial balance. Eating an animal-based diet in particular has been shown to cause an increase in harmful bacteria, a condition known as dysbiosis. This problem is not confined to the United States ... Read more »
