Wirecard Supports Singtel’s Roll out of First Virtual Visa Card in Singapore

International technology group Wirecard has partnered with Singtel to support the recent roll out of Singapore’s first Visa virtual card for Singtel’s mobile wallet Dash.

Singtel Dash is currently Singapore’s most widely accepted all-in-one digital wallet. The mobile payments platform, which allows customers to shop, pay transport fares and remit money, is part of Singtel’s strategy to transform Southeast Asia’s biggest phone carrier into a leading communications technology company by investing into digital and cyber security businesses.

“We are very proud to be a partner for Singapore’s leading digital wallet,” says Grigoriy Kuznetsov, Executive Vice President, Global Financial Services at Wirecard. “Singtel can now process mobile virtual Visa payments with Wirecard as a Bank Identification Number (BIN) sponsor. This further reinforces our position as a leading global prepaid issuer and BIN sponsor. It also demonstrates our state-of-the-art card processing capabilities.”

Since the launch of the Visa virtual account last month, Singtel Dash’s over 500,000 customers have been using their mobile phones to make payments in over 50,000 PayWave-enabled merchants across Singapore and use the payment platform to shop at Singapore-based e-commerce stores.

“Singtel Dash has gained more traction as a payment option of choice. With the adoption of Wirecard’s card processing solution, our customers can now make hassle-free mobile virtual Visa payments,” says Mr Gilbert Chuah, Head of mCommerce, Consumer Singapore at Singtel.

Transaction volumes for Singtel Dash have more than doubled in the past year and Singtel plans to expand the reach of the mobile platform to schools or even hawker centers.

Fiat Chrysler Automobiles to Join BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye in Developing Autonomous Driving Platform

  • BMW Group, Intel Corporation, Mobileye, an Intel company, and Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) signed a memorandum of understanding for FCA to join them in developing a world leading, state-of-the-art autonomous driving platform
  • The cooperation allows the companies to leverage each other’s individual strengths, capabilities and resources
  • The platform will be scalable for Level 3 to Level 4/5 automated driving and can be used by multiple automakers around the world while maintaining their unique brand identities

BMW Group, Intel and Mobileye announced today that they have signed a memorandum of understanding with the intention for Fiat Chrysler Automobiles (FCA) to be the first automaker to join them in developing a world leading, state-of-the-art autonomous driving platform for global deployment.

The development partners intend to leverage each other’s individual strengths, capabilities and resources to enhance the platform’s technology, increase development efficiency and reduce time to market. One enabler to achieve this will be the co-location of engineers in Germany, as well as other locations. FCA will bring engineering and other technical resources and expertise to the cooperation, as well as its significant sales volumes, geographic reach and long-time experience in North America.

“In order to advance autonomous driving technology, it is vital to form partnerships among automakers, technology providers and suppliers,” said FCA Chief Executive Officer Sergio Marchionne. “Joining this cooperation will enable FCA to directly benefit from the synergies and economies of scale that are possible when companies come together with a common vision and objective.”

In July 2016, BMW Group, Intel, and Mobileye announced that they were joining forces to make self-driving vehicles a reality by collaborating to bring solutions for highly automated driving (Level 3) and fully automated driving (Level 4/5) into production by 2021. Since then, they have been designing and developing a scalable architecture that can be used by multiple automakers around the world, while at the same time maintaining each automaker’s unique brand identities.

The cooperation remains on-track to deploy 40 autonomous test vehicles on the road by 2017 year-end. It also expects to benefit from leveraging data and learnings from the recently announced 100 Level 4 test vehicle fleet of Mobileye, an Intel Company, demonstrating the scale effect of this collaborative approach.

“The two factors that remain key to the success of the cooperation are uncompromising excellence in development, and the scalability of our autonomous driving platform,” said Harald Krüger, Chairman of the Board of Management of BMW AG. “With FCA as our new partner, we reinforce our path to successfully create the most relevant state-of-the-art, cross-OEM Level 3-5 solution on a global scale.”

“The future of transportation relies on auto and tech industry leaders working together to develop a scalable architecture that automakers around the globe can adopt and customize,” said Brian Krzanich, Intel CEO. “We’re thrilled to welcome FCA’s contribution, bringing us a step closer to delivering the world’s safest autonomous vehicles.”

“We welcome FCA’s contributions and use of the cooperation’s platform, which has made substantial progress over the last year and is rapidly entering the testing and execution phase,” stated Professor Amnon Shashua, Chief Executive Officer and Chief Technology Officer of Mobileye, an Intel Company. “The combination of vision-intense perception and mapping, differentiated sensor fusion, and driving policy solutions offers the highest levels of safety and versatility, in a cost-efficient package that will scale across all geographies and road settings.”

BMW Group, Intel, Mobileye and FCA, together with the recently announced development partners and system integrators, invite and welcome additional automakers and technology suppliers to join them in adopting this autonomous driving platform in an effort to create an industry-wide solution.

August is a bittersweet time for many students, summer is ending but a new year of schooling with friends begins.

The company has spent the last several months tailoring a line of homecoming dresses 2017 that are based on current fashion trends.

The new line of homecoming dresses is a reflection of this hard work by the design team and something the company stands by as being the best homecoming products available today.

Hebeos understands that many students are not working and those who are often working minimum wage jobs, the company has worked tirelessly with its manufacturing team to keep costs low while upholding the highest quality control standards. The low prices of production are then passed on to the customers. These low prices in conjunction with high quality and the latest fashions are unheard of in today’s fashion industry.

The hospitals included within this partnership are: Imperial College Healthcare NHS Trust, which comprises St Mary’s Hospital, Charing Cross Hospital, Hammersmith Hospital, Queen Charlotte and Chelsea Hospital and the Western Eye Hospital; Chelsea & Westminster Hospital Foundation Trust, which comprises Chelsea & Westminster Hospital and West Middlesex University Hospital; and Hillingdon Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust, which comprises Hillingdon Hospital and Mount Vernon Hospital.

Cunard Prepares to Set Sail for QE2 50th Anniversary Celebrations

Luxury cruise brand Cunard, is honouring the 50th anniversary of its longest serving ocean liner, QE2, with a special voyage onboard the luxury cruise liner Queen Elizabeth.

The 50th anniversary of this much-loved ship will be remembered as Queen Elizabeth sets sail from Southampton on Friday 8 September for a 17-night voyage. Departing guests will enjoy Venice’s iconic canals, mythical Mount Etna in Sicily and Corfu’s leafy beauty.

Angus Struthers, Vice President, Cunard said: “This mediterranean cruise is perfectly timed to pay tribute to QE2’s launch and naming by HM Queen Elizabeth II 50 years ago. When QE2 came into service in the 1960s, many critics said she wouldn’t last a decade in the age of the jet but her unique design as a dual-purpose ship meant that she was versatile enough to operate both as a transatlantic liner and a cruise ship.”

He added: “Given how famous and loved she was, we felt this was a great opportunity to pay tribute to this Cunarder’s remarkable life onboard our newest ship, Queen Elizabeth; herself designed to offer a perfect luxury cruise holiday.”

Celebrations focus on five special theme days, each of which will be accompanied by QE2 inspired menus, talks from special guests, historical snippets in the daily programme, past-passenger gatherings and QE2 quizzes.

Themes include Moving in Royal Circles which looks back at the unique and special bond between QE2 and the Royal Family; The Falklands which acknowledges the ship’s service as a troop ship in the 1982 conflict; Triumph of a Great Tradition examining the QE2’s remarkable career achievements and the long history of Cunard ‘firsts’, and World Flagship in tribute to QE2’s 26 world cruises that made her an icon in cities across the globe.

Celebrations culminate on QE2 Day – 20 September 2017 – exactly 50 years since the ship was launched by Her Majesty Queen Elizabeth II. Events will include a QE2 ball, and a historical retrospective of the ship’s service life to be hosted in Queen Elizabeth’s 850 seat Royal Court Theatre.

As part of Cunard’s renowned and award winning Insights Speaker programme, a number of special guests connected to QE2 will be sailing onboard. One such guest is Captain Ian McNaught, QE2’s last Master, who said: “This voyage is a significant and timely tribute to the world’s best loved ship. QE2 remains the longest serving express liner in history. She carried 2.5 million passengers over 5.6 million miles; that’s further than any passenger ship – ever! This remarkable ship sailed alone on the North Atlantic for most of her career. She carried the Cunard tradition from the bygone era of the ocean liner and sustained it into the 21st century. The QE2 carried Royalty, celebrities and served in the Falklands War.”

He added: “What I remember most as her Master, were the passengers. Everyday people who saved up to experience life onboard the world’s best loved ship. Many came back time and time again. That is a tribute to the countless people who served as QE2’s crew, each one making the experience special and memorable. QE2 has been gone for nearly a decade now, however on her 50th anniversary the memory of her is strong. It is very fitting to be acknowledging the QE2’s remarkable career here onboard Queen Elizabeth.”

Other guests include Commodore R. W. Warwick who served as QE2’s Captain for 13 years; QE2 social hostess Maureen Ryan who served onboard the original Cunard Queens as well as Queen Mary 2; and maritime historian Chris Frame, author of a series of books about QE2 and Cunard.

The voyage departs 8 September and returns 25 September. For more information please go to www.cunard.com

Only one of them is an amateur design student from the US, who will go head to head against other veteran designers in the finale.

Designer Ronaldo Buensalida has four designs shortlisted for the final, in both the plain gold and the gem-set gold jewellery categories. Bouasse has already made a name for himself as an award-winning designer and is currently working for the largest jewellery company in the UAE.

Mohammad Khosht of Jordan was a graduate of a local hotel management and tourism institution before devoting himself in the world of jewellery design. His endless creativity allowed him to turn his passion into a profession.

Graduated from the famed jewellery school Ecoles de la Rue du Louvre in France, designer Phil Bouasse‘s profound knowledge in jewellery is his greatest asset. Bouasse, who is also an instructor and consultant, is providing training sections to international brands and is eager to showcase his unique design approach in major competitions.

Born and raised in a jeweller family, the DNA of jewellery design flows in Krishma S Jain‘s veins. Through constant exploration, she carved a niche for herself in the jewellery design sector and had become a force to be reckoned with.

Turkish designer Meltem Sahan once created a thumb ring that embodies her belief that all lives are connected. Now, using “tree” as the theme, she is hoping her designs could once again reinvigorate people’s love for the nature.

Nathalie Melville Geary is a Hong Kong-based jewellery designer, craftsman, creative teaching expert and entrepreneur. With infinite creativity and passion, she established her namesake brand and acted as the creative director to share her expertise on design, promotion and teaching.

Last but not least is Nicola Brandon of the US. Apart from jewellery design, the 20-year-old designer also puts emphasis on user experience and system design. Brandon believes her shortlisted designs are a perfect reflection of her belief that has what it takes to change the world.

In the final judging stage, judges will examine closely the finished product of each of the 30 designs. Then, based on the scores according to three categories, namely Adherence to the Theme, Originality and Creativity, as well as Understanding of Craftsmanship and Manufacturing Processes, and one final round of discussion, winners will be selected in a professional and impartial manner.

Packers Plus and BP Oman Achieve Unprecedented Operational Efficiencies in HPHT Wells

Packers Plus Energy Services Inc. is pleased to announce recent developments with BP Oman Exploration (Epsilon) Ltd. Collaborations include development of a customized completion system, successful installation and subsequent stimulation of two high pressure/high temperature (HPHT) wells in Oman’s Khazzan field. The first well showed encouraging results as the target rate was met after pumping only three of the planned six stages. Other noted benefits include lower fracture initiation pressures and operational efficiency leading to further trials and optimisations for open hole completions going forward.

Having used cased hole plug and perf systems previously, BP Oman wanted to trial an open hole system that would increase near wellbore conductivity, reduce treating pressures and be robust enough to function in temperatures up to 350 °F (176 °C) and working differential pressures of 15,000 psi (103 MPa). Packers Plus worked on upgrading its field proven StackFRAC® Titanium® XV open hole ball-drop HPHT system to meet the operator’s requirements.

The engineering design, construction, QA/QC program, testing and procurement were accomplished in just over four months, producing customized, corrosion-resistant tools operational at temperature and pressure specifications exceeding those of the wellbore parameters.

Following a successful installation of a six-stage system on the first well, the first three stages were stimulated and the well was flowed back. Initial production from those stages surpassed expectations and prompted BP Oman to forego the remaining three stages in the first well. Best practices from the first installation were transferred to the second completion, leading to significant improvement of installing and stimulating the four-stage open hole multistage lower completion.

The effectiveness of the Titanium XV RockSEAL® open hole packers for zonal isolation was verified using tracer technology on both wells. Furthermore, the award-winning ePlus™ Retina monitoring system was used to verify downhole events on both installations. BP Oman is using this innovative monitoring service on their open hole completions work scope to promote operational efficiencies as they further develop the Khazzan Field in Block 61.

“The successful collaboration between BP Oman and Packers Plus resulted in an exceptional completion program for the region. We look forward to continuing to adapt customized, high efficiency, multistage HPHT completions in the Middle East and North Africa, which will drive operational efficiencies, enhance production and optimize overall well economics,” said Packers Plus President, Ian Bryant.
