The Gateway's power and propulsion element is a high-power, 50-kW solar electric propulsion spacecraft section that will provide astronauts access to the entire surface of the Moon. It also will allow the Gateway to serve as a mobile command and service module by providing a communications relay for human and robotic expeditions to the lunar surface.

Charged with returning to the Moon by 2024, NASA's lunar exploration plans are based on a two-phased approach: the first is focused on speed – landing on the Moon in five years – while the second will establish a sustained human presence on and around the Moon by 2028. NASA will use the Gateway to access the Moon, and the agency is targeting launch of the power and propulsion element in late 2022.

Casio G-SHOCK Announces Latest G-LIDE Model In Collaboration With Pro Surfer Kanoa Igarashi



Today, Casio G-SHOCK unveils an all-new, limited-edition G-LIDE timepiece, in collaboration with professional surfer and G-SHOCK athlete, Kanoa Igarashi. Boasting superior functionality in surf data tracking and performance, the GLX5600KI-7 arrives in a translucent case with silver accents and boasts Kanoa's signature on the case back, face and band.

The new watch is based on the G-LIDE GLX5600 which features a tide graph, an indispensable tool for surfers. The thin, square shape of the watch ensures that it does not obstruct the wrist while surfing. The GLX5600KI-7 features a semi-transparent body that evokes the ocean and is paired with a mirror finish face that gives the watch a simple, cool look. Igarashi's "Kanoa" signature is inscribed on the upper center of the watch face and on the strap keeper and case back, as well as in illumination when the backlight is turned on.

At just 21 years old, the Huntington Beach, CA native has been in the professional surf scene for over a decade. Kanoa was an instant talent from the time he first jumped in the water at the age of 3, and by the time he was 11 he set a new record for the most victories in a single season. He has gone on to win a number of major surfing competitions and is currently a world-class professional surfer competing on the World Surf League Championship Tour at the top of the sport.

The new model features technical capabilities to match with Kanoa's impressive surf skills, including Tide & Moon graphs and a Moon Age data that anchors the face of the timepiece, for anticipating tide and surf swell of the rider's current location.

A video highlighting the collaboration timepiece has been created – watch here: http://bit.ly/G-SHOCKxKanoa

The new model also comes equipped with standard G-SHOCK technology such as:
200M water resistance
Shock resistance
World time (29 time zones / 48 cities)
Auto EL backlight
Flash alert
Stopwatch and countdown timer
2 Multi function alarms

The Field Master Pro MS2090A can also be configured to cover up to 54 GHz to support the 5G millimeter wave (mmWave) radios at 28 GHz and 39 GHz.

"KT has clearly established itself as an industry leader with the rollout of the first commercial 5G network in the world. Anritsu is proud to be part of this transcendent moment in the wireless industry by supplying the Field Master Pro MS2090A to verify the new network meets the stringent 5G performance standards," said Donn Mulder, President and Chief Financial Officer, Anritsu Company.

  • Website Builder
If you want to get anywhere in the world of business today, you have to have a website. It can say a lot about your company and is just like the front door of a bricks and mortar store. You can use it to attract customers and invite them in to make a purchase. Use it for sharing news, information, special offers, and connect it to your social media channels.

Cyber attacks are a big concern for small business so you should be looking for ways to safeguard your business from hackers, phishers, and other cybercriminals.

How to Build Your Corporate Image and Identity



Corporate image and identity act as a foundation for both startups and established enterprises.

For people who are new to these two terms, the corporate identity or image is the way the world thinks about you. It includes the way you handle business, the way you communicate with them, your product packaging, how you take care of issues, and your company values.


Should you have a corporate identity?

You should never lack one. Remember that it is a foundation. If you do not have any, it gives room for the world to define you the way they want. That is one thing you should avoid at all costs because most times, they might regard you in a crude way.

A good corporate identity is one of the factors that could bring in extra profits and help to market your product without any struggle.

Before you begin the process of building the identity of your company, you should be aware of some vital elements that help you build a reputable one. They include:

Your logo

Tagline

Brand colors

Uniforms

Documents

Office décor and furniture

Mission and vision

Branded company assets

Product packaging


With that in mind, how would you end up with a proper corporate identity? What are some of the factors you have to put in mind? Here are things that you should prioritize.


1. Brand strategy matters

You may decide to jump on such a step, but it is ambiguous to start building an identity without having a clear direction.

The strategy breaks down your goals into the brand name, voice, values, and messaging. In

other words, you will be giving your goals a clear and outlined path to follow.


2. Understand the benefits of having an identity

The fact remains, when you understand your mission, then you will experience some benefits.

Some of them include learning to communicate better; your product becomes elaborate, you know how to deal with disasters, among other advantages.

From a client’s perspective, they will know you and everything that concerns you, which eliminates all forms of distractions and confusion.


3. You will have to train your staff

Clients are very particular. You have to be professional when you handle them; otherwise, they may decide to never work with you again.

Therefore, it is vital that you train new staff. By doing this, the newbies will learn how you operate, and the process of dealing with particular situations, especially challenging ones.


4. Have a clear communication process

Many corporates have their individualized communication processes. It all depends on the CEOs or supervisor’s leadership style.

Once you have a transparent communication process, it will be easy for employees to communicate with each other, handle clients, and relay information to their bosses.


5. Create a good marketing strategy

Elements such as the logos and branded company assets go a long way in marketing your company.

During the design process, it is essential that your creative team come up with something that will be impactful, even as the business grows.

Incorporate online marketing through social media and websites as well. Hire an internet marketing agency if you feel that you would require external assistance when it comes to this.


Conclusion

A business with an enhanced corporate identity should stand out from its competitors. It is crucial that you be consistent with maintaining your company’s concept. An inconsistent firm may show signs of being untrustworthy.

Whirlpool Brand Helps Families Skip a Step in Laundry Routines with Latest Innovation: The Smart Front Load Laundry Pair with Load & Go Dispenser



Laundry can often feel like a seemingly endless number of steps, between sorting, washing, pouring, transferring, drying, folding and putting clothes away. That's why Whirlpool is changing the laundry game for families by offering a way to skip a step when tackling this monotonous, but essential, chore.




The integration of the Load & Go™ dispenser - a feature of the new Whirlpool® Smart Front Load Laundry Pair - means that busy families do not need to measure out and add detergent every time they do a load of laundry, allowing them to skip a step in the process. With Load & Go™, individuals only need to add detergent to the Smart Front Load Washer once and the dispenser will auto-distribute soap for up to 40 loads*. By using proprietary Precise Dispense technology, the dispenser will know the exact amount of soap to use based on the size of each load, eliminating the need to tediously measure or guess how much detergent is correct.





"We recently issued a survey that found one-third of Americans often push laundry to the bottom of their chore list1," said Nelly Martínez Garza, laundry brand manager, Whirlpool brand. "To us, it's no surprise at all. Though many individuals see laundry as an act of care they provide for their families, we know laundry remains a daunting task, which is why the Load & Go™ dispenser is such an ingenious feature. By providing a practical, smart and convenient shortcut right on our machines, this dispenser transforms the way we do laundry to help people have one less thing to remember. It may be a small change but it makes a huge difference."

  • Smart Laundry Capabilities through the Whirlpool® app, offers complete control of the appliance from anywhere using a smartphone or tablet, giving busy parents the flexibility to manage laundry even when away from home. Within the app, individuals can track how much time is left on a load or remotely begin a cycle if they forget to hit start before heading out the door, ensuring laundry will be washed and ready exactly when they need it. Additional features include:
  • Scheduling a wash cycle, which tells the washer through the Whirlpool® app when you'll be home so it starts and ends the cycle on a person's schedule
  • The Laundry Task Manager, which helps individuals delegate laundry tasks amongst family members, such as transferring a load or hanging laundry once done, directly within the app
  • The Stain Guide quickly identifies how to treat stains, such as spaghetti sauce or grass, to lessen the amount of time researching pretreating clothing and doing laundry.
  • Latest in Voice Control Technology provides hands-free control of the appliance from anywhere in the house through an Amazon Alexa-enabled device and coming soon, the Google Assistant**. With voice control technology, individuals can start the machine and instruct their appliance to wash their current load on a specific setting – such as permanent press or brights – without lifting a finger.
  • Intuitive Touch Screens will stay one step ahead of busy parents by guiding individuals to the correct washer and dryer presets based on the settings their family uses most, saving time and ensuring laundry is washed correctly. Families can also pre-program up to 35 personalized cycles to keep regularly used settings easily accessible on the device, such as customized presets that treat dirty soccer uniforms, delicate baby clothing or bulky comforters that require specific washing needs on a consistent basis.

The Whirlpool® Smart Front Load Washer is available starting at $1,499. The Whirlpool® Smart Front Load Dryer is available starting at $1,499 for electric models and $1,599 for gas models.

WORTH Partnership Project

An initiative of the European Commission that aims to support collaboration between PM and start-ups of designers, producers and technology companies to create new products and implement innovative and disruptive ideas. The initiative is implemented by a consortium across Europe, in the belief that creative industries (SMEs and start-ups) are the main drivers of economic growth in Europe.

The WORTH Partnership Project is funded by COSME, the European Union Programme for the Competitiveness of Enterprises and Small and Medium-sized Enterprises.
