first_imgLinkedin Facebook Share AdvertisementWinemakers, viticulturists, cellar masters and compliance officers can now say goodbye to cumbersome paper tracking and redundant data entry thanks to a revolutionary new software management tool offered by InnoVint, one of the wine industry’s top software development companies operating today.Founded by UC Davis trained and experienced winemaker Ashley DuBois Leonard, the InnoVint Platform is the first mobile-focused management system that allows for real-time data entry as well as real-time data access anytime, anywhere.“It’s a cloud-based, mobile-driven management tool that allows you to capture and relay data in real time,” confirms Ashley DuBois Leonard, InnoVint Founder and CEO. “This is a built from scratch, modern platform that solves all the issues I had as a winemaker and general manager struggling to have reliable, current information at my fingertips. It’s an all-inclusive tool from bud break to bottle, developed specifically by and for winemakers to address, track and report every single aspect of the winemaking process.”The InnoVint platform features single point data entry simultaneously available to team members across multiple locations.Highlights of the system include:Superior Data and Activity VisualizationCalendars, Harvest Planning and Real-Time NotificationsRobust Vineyard, Cellar, and Financial TrackingDigital Work Orders and Mobile Data EntryFDA and TTB ComplianceFlexible Workflow with Full Team EngagementThe system also offers QR Code Vessel Tracking; Additive Batch Tracking & an Addition Calculator; ETS Laboratories Integration; and an Owner Based Permission System for custom crush clients and alternating proprietors.“The accounting aspect of this software is of huge interest to our clients,” reports DuBois Leonard. “InnoVint tracks all direct and overhead costs associated with production.” The system will proportionally attribute each of the expenses involved in a bulk wine lot so our customers know exactly how much it much it costs them to produce a bottle of wine.”Leonard DuBois notes that the InnoVint system is appropriate for all levels of winemaking. Boutique to mid-size wineries can use it to streamline operations, large wineries can employ the software to minimize risk and maximize profits, and custom crush clients are able to track and access all data on their specific wines by bond or by location at any time.“Customers are very happy with our product and service,” DuBois Leonard points out. “We have an excellent to world class customer loyalty rating, according to the global Net Promoter Score (NPS) standards.“It comes from building in more intelligence and quality management so that winemakers can better control and focus on the granularity of the production process,” Dubois Leonard explains. “InnoVint supplies a turnkey solution for everyone at the winery that works with or relies on production data.”For more information and a product demonstration, go to ME INFOAdvertisement Home Wine Industry Spotlights INNOVINT CEO and Founder Partners with Winemakers on Intuitive Production Management Software…Wine Industry SpotlightsINNOVINT CEO and Founder Partners with Winemakers on Intuitive Production Management Software to Optimize Winemaking ProcessBy Advertorial – November 12, 2018 229 0 Twitter ReddIt Previous articleLuanne Tierney Joins Board of Directors for Crimson Wine GroupNext articleNew Vinexpo Shanghai Exhibition Boosts Opportunities for Wines and Spirits in China Advertorial TAGSAshley DuBois LeonardInnoVintManagement SoftwareProduction Software Email Pinterestlast_img read more

Astronauts’ brains change shape during spaceflight

first_imgPinterest Share on Facebook Email Share Share on Twittercenter_img MRIs before and after space missions reveal that astronauts’ brains compress and expand during spaceflight, according to a University of Michigan study.The findings could have applications for treating other health conditions that affect brain function, says principal investigator Rachael Seidler, U-M professor of kinesiology and psychology.The study, believed to be the first to examine structural changes that take place in astronauts’ brains during spaceflight, found that the volume of gray matter increased or decreased, and the extent of the alteration depended on the length of time spent in space. LinkedIn Seidler and colleagues examined structural MRIs in 12 astronauts who spent two weeks as shuttle crew members, and 14 who spent six months on the International Space Station. All experienced increases and decreases in gray matter in different parts of the brain, with more pronounced changes the longer the astronauts spent in space.“We found large regions of gray matter volume decreases, which could be related to redistribution of cerebrospinal fluid in space,” Seidler said. “Gravity is not available to pull fluids down in the body, resulting in so-called puffy face in space. This may result in a shift of brain position or compression.”The researchers also found increases in gray matter volume in regions that control leg movement and process sensory information from legs, which may reflect changes related to the brain learning how to move in microgravity. These changes were greater in space station astronauts because their brains were learning and adapting 24/7.“It’s interesting because even if you love something you won’t practice more than an hour a day,” Seidler said.But the brain changes researchers observed were equivalent to someone practicing a new skill round-the-clock.“In space, it’s an extreme example of neuroplasticity in the brain because you’re in a microgravity environment 24 hours a day,” Seidler said.Though they haven’t pinpointed the exact nature of the changes yet, the findings may lead to new ways of thinking about certain health conditions—for example, people on long-duration bed rest or people who have normal pressure hydrocephalus, a condition in which cerebrospinal spinal fluid accumulates in ventricles in the brain and causes pressure.Seidler said the brain changes could reflect new connections between neurons, and she’s leading another long-term study that will help determine the repercussions on cognition and physical performance, as well as how long the brain changes last. For example, even after balance returns, the brain might still recruit different pathways to compensate for the structural brain changes caused by spaceflight.“The behavior may return to normal, but the way the brain controls the behavior may change,” she said.These results largely parallel findings from a long-term bed rest study that Seidler is leading, in which volunteers spent up to three months in downward tilted position, and brains shifted up.The research is supported by a grant from NASA.The study, “Brain structural plasticity with spaceflight,” appeared in the journal Nature Microgravity.last_img read more
