SHAREHOLDER ALERT: Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP Encourages Investors Who Suffered Losses In Excess Of $100,000 Investing In Argos Therapeutics, Inc. To Contact The Firm Before Lead Plaintiff Deadline

NEW YORK, March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Faruqi & Faruqi, LLP, a leading national securities law firm, reminds investors in Argos Therapeutics, Inc. (“Argos” or the “Company”) (NASDAQ:ARGS) of the May 15, 2017 deadline to seek the role of lead plaintiff in a federal securities class action lawsuit filed against the Company and certain officers.The lawsuit has been filed in the U.S. District Court for the Middle District of North Carolina on behalf of all those who purchased Argos securities between February 7, 2014 and February 21, 2017 (the “Class Period”).  The case, Maurer v. Argos Therapeutics Inc. et al, No. 1:17-cv-00216 was filed on March 14, 2017.The lawsuit focuses on whether the Company and its executives violated federal securities laws by making false and/or misleading statements and/or failing to disclose that: (i) the Arcentis technology platform was not viable; (ii) ADAPT was likely to be discontinued, and (iii) as a result, the Company’s financial statements and statements about its business, operations, and prospects were false and misleading and/or lacked a reasonable basis.Specifically, on February 22, 2017, prior to the market opening, Argos filed a Form 8-K with the Securities and Exchange Commission (“SEC”) announcing that the Independent Data Monitoring Committee for ADAPT recommended that the study be discontinued for futility, finding that the study was unlikely to demonstrate a statistically significant improvement in overall survival.On this news, Argos’ share price fell from $4.40 per share on  February 21, 2017 to a closing price of $1.48 on February 22, 2017—a $2.92 or a 66.36% drop.Request more information now by clicking here: www.faruqilaw.com/ARGS.

New Data Shows Excessive Increase in Digital Ad Spend Negatively Influence Sales

New York, March 16, 2017 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) — Standard Media Index (SMI), the company bringing transparency to advertising data, in conjunction with Bill Harvey Consulting, will release new data showing the effects an unbalanced TV and digital advertising media mix has on sales. The new study, which in part was originally commissioned by Turner Broadcasting, will be presented at ARF’s Re!Think conference on March 21, 2017.A continuation of the research SMI and Harvey conducted in June 2016 looking at sales in relation to TV advertising, the study, which uses major Auto, QSR and CPG brands as its subjects, goes a step further to confirm not only does increased TV advertising support sales, but there is an optimal media mix between television and digital that ensures better sales. As it becomes even clearer that TV provides reach and transparency, it’s vital to best understand the premier media mix for brands to reach their audiences.This new data, which looks at shifts in advertising spend from 23 brands across Auto, QSR and CPG, from 2014 – 2016, comes at a time when industry pundits are beginning to question the effects of digital advertising and brands like P&G are beginning to question their shift away from more traditional media. P&G’s move is supported by the SMI/Harvey study which shows the most successful advertising methods for the CPG brands studied were Broadcast prime time TV, all other TV and pure-play Digital Video.In addition to releasing results of this new research, SMI will also preview the next generation of advertising effectiveness studies which will add household footprint data, and consumer action data to the mix, creating clear and actionable findings for brands to best target consumers across media types. Unlike many ROI studies in the market, this will be the industry’s first syndicated ROI series where a brand can compare itself to competitors by media type.To hear the full findings from the SMI/Harvey report, and get a first look at the partnership’s next study, please join their presentation at the ARF Re!Think Conference in New York.What: ARF Re!Think Conference, Tracking TV & Digital ROI Using Single-Source MethodologyWhen: 2:50 – 3:20  p.m. Tuesday, March 21,  2017Where: New York Hilton Midtown, Americas II, 4th FloorWho: James Fennessy, CEO of SMI; Bill Harvey, Executive Chairman, Bill Harvey ConsultingAbout Standard Media Index

MINNEAPOLIS, Minn. ― SportsEngine Inc. announced today a long-term partnership with SquadLocker®, the leading provider of apparel management solutions for youth sports, to provide custom team apparel stores to SportsEngine clients, including more than 600,000 local youth sports teams, leagues and clubs. By integrating directly into the SportsEngine platform, SquadLocker will radically simplify the process for team administrators and volunteers to create team apparel orders, and provide an easy way for parents and fans to purchase team gear and spirit wear.

“This new offering fits perfectly with SportsEngine’s overall mission to simplify the administration of youth sports, so that coaches, volunteers and families can spend more time playing the game,” said Lee Zukor, vice president of product and user experience at SportsEngine. “By leveraging the information already collected by organizations and their administrators in SportsEngine, we’re providing an effective way to alleviate many of the headaches I’ve personally experienced when trying to create an apparel store for my own organization.”

Thousands of sports organizations have chosen SportsEngine to run their website, tournaments, leagues, online registration and mobile apps. Through these applications, over 600,000 sports teams, clubs and leagues are able to drastically reduce the time they spend on administration and communication, allowing them to focus on spending time with their athletes. Momentum in all sports has accelerated for SportsEngine with recent agreements signed with governing bodies, organizations, and teams.

Through SquadLocker’s SmartStore, organizations can create custom team stores with the most popular brands and sizes based on each team’s sport, location, season. Administrators no longer need to make dozens of small decisions about sizes to stock, colors to choose or the best logo placement on a garment.

“Administrators and team managers will be able to spend more time involved in sports instead of spending time managing the apparel purchasing and delivery process,” said Todd Grant, president of SquadLocker. “We look forward to making this integration available to the entire SportsEngine community.”

Corporate Reputation Drives Both Kinds of CCO

By Dave Armon

SOURCE: 3BL Media, LLC

DESCRIPTION:

All CCOs are not created equally. But they’re getting closer.

After decades working alongside chief communications officers, I figured other corporate professional masquerading under the CCO acronym had little in common with the wordsmiths who manage corporate messaging.

That myth was exploded when I attended a gathering of the other CCO– chief compliance officers – and realized their concerns about corporate reputation were completely aligned with the ink-stained wretches who manage comms.

The occasion was the Global Ethics Summit, an annual conference presented by Scottsdale, Arizona-based Ethisphere Institute.  Whether in sessions about diversity and inclusion, mergers and acquisitions, or big data, it became clear that protecting the brand is a shared responsibility.

“Companies are no longer just happy to be out of the news,” said Erica Salmon Byrne, executive vice president of Ethisphere in an interview about the intersection of corporate compliance and communications.

Byrne pointed to collaborative research done by her team and the Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) demonstrating the value of communicating – both internally and externally – an organization’s commitment to ethics.

That’s music to our ears at 3BL Media, where clients use our platform to share their goals and achievements on everything ESG – environmental, social and governance.

“Communicating the things you do well, the things you aspire to do better and the challenges you need to overcome leads to openness and accountability,” said Hasbro President and CEO Brian Goldner in a white paper published by PRSA and Ethisphere. “It makes your relationships with stakeholders—consumers, employees, shareholders and regulators—more consistent, trustworthy and transparent. Because our stakeholders know we’re not just checking off the boxes when we work together. In Hasbro’s culture, if we’re consistent in our expectations, we can’t help but be ethical.”

Among other conference takeaways applicable to both communications and compliance officers:

  • State Street Global Advisors earned accolades for rolling out new guidelines to push the more than 3,000 public companies in which it invests to increase the number of women on their boards.  A bronze statue of a girl facing down the famed Wall Street bull called attention to the asset manager’s action on International Women’s Day.
  • Visa General Counsel Kelly Mahon Tullier acknowledged the two industries her company straddles, financial services and technology, have not historically received high marks for employee diversity and inclusion.  That has changed and is driving new thinking and growth. “The research shows the most innovative teams are the most diverse teams.” Here’s an interview Mahon Tullier did on the topic during a Bloomberg event.
  • Storytelling, another tried and true tactic for those in corporate communications, is working effectively for both Boeing and Dell as they remind employees to place integrity and ethics ahead of simply getting deals done. “Customers care not just about what we sell but how we act,” said Dell Chief Ethics and Compliance Officer Michael McLaughlin, whose emails titled “Don’t Let This Happen To You,” have a high open rate.
  • Gamification works at Boeing, which created custom Jeopardy questions concerning corporate ethics at a recent Aerospace Industry Association conference, said Diana Sands, senior vice president of internal governance and administration at Boeing.
  • Recognition in respected rankings can have tangible business benefits.  Companies on the list of most ethical companies saw a 6.4 percent rise in share price, said Ethisphere’s Salmon Byrne.

Scoop News Group Announces 2017 Top Women In Technology List

WASHINGTON, March 16, 2017 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Leading national tech media company Scoop News Group today released its annual list of the Top Women in Tech — the elite cadre of women transforming technology and making significant contributions to their organizations and our community.

This year’s list recognizes the contributions of a diverse group of innovators and leaders working in cybersecurity, federal IT and state and city government. To compile the 2017 Top Women in Tech, Scoop News Group’s editorial staff interviewed women leaders across the cybersecurity, federal, state and city technology communities, taking into consideration a combination of each candidate’s spirit of innovation, leadership, professional achievements and influence in the technology industry.

The release of the list during women’s history month highlights some of the best and brightest minds in technology —leaders upending the status quo, making business and legal decisions that will push cybersecurity forward and improving how government agencies achieve their missions.

CyberScoop’s 2017 Top Women in Cybersecurity list includes:

  • Tarah Wheeler, Head of Website Security, Symantec
  • Niloofar Howe, Chief Strategy Officer, RSA
  • Amanda Rousseau, Malware Researcher, Endgame
  • Donna Dodson, Associate Director and Chief Cybersecurity Adviser, NIST

This list celebrates women’s achievements and is also an occasion to recognize that some barriers still exist to women’s advancement and position in technology. According to the National Center for Women and Information Technology, women comprise only 25 percent of the computing workforce. The 2017 Global Information Security Workforce Study shows women make up just 11 percent of the global cybersecurity workforce and earn less than their male counterparts at every level of the industry. To encourage more women to join the ranks of tech industry titans in both the public and private sectors, the list highlights the honorees’ advice for young women setting out on STEM or business careers.

Visit the features on CyberScoop, FedScoop and StateScoop for full interviews with each of the women, who shared what got them interested in the field, some of the biggest challenges they’ve faced and the source of their inspiration.

Scoop News Group encourages readers to use the social media tools on honorees’ pages to share their stories to inspire the next generation of women leaders to guide the future of women in technology.
