【铂金小知识】

Q:如何辨别真正的铂金首饰?

A:辨别铂金首饰最简单有效的方法就是认准首饰内的铂金专有标志——Pt或铂。它就像铂金的身份证,只有标明铂金专有标志的首饰,才是真正的铂金首饰。根据国家规定,每件铂金首饰的背面都必须刻有铂金专有标志,并在标志后注明铂金纯度的千分数(即铂含量),如“Pt900”或“铂900”(代表铂含量为900‰),“足铂”则表示铂含量≥990‰。

China Money Network and KPMG Present the Annual “Special Situations Forum: China 2017” in Hong Kong



Over the past two years, investors have shown renewed interest in distressed debt and special situations investment opportunities in China.

Hong Kong, November 28, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Under the backdrop of an economic rationalization and a government-led campaign to reduce excess capacity and lower corporate stock and leverage, the investible assets in this wave of expected rising distressed debt in China has clearly different characteristics compared to past cycles.

China Money Network has researched that the latest wave of deals in Chinese distressed debt space appear to have higher asset quality compared to previous non-performing loans entering the market. This could mean that legal complexity of these obligations is much greater this time around. So as the government’s determination to strengthen implementation of the Bankruptcy Law provides a more robust legal environment for investors operations in China, an expanded investment strategy for bankruptcies, NLP’s, debt-to-equity conversion and emergency funding all are expected to be deployed as this market continues to mature.

“This high-level event will gather relevant market investors and deal makers together for a practical ‘lessons learned’ panel discussion on investment opportunities on China's special situations market," said Naveet McMahon, managing partner of China Money Network. "Participants wanting to explore the challenges and avoid the pitfalls of these opportunities should join our event."

Rutronik and Infineon conclude distribution agreement for Asia




Hong Kong, China, November 27, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Rutronik Elektronische Bauelemente GmbH and the Munich technology concern Infineon extend their distribution cooperation to include Asia. The agreement has already taken effect and includes the entire product portfolio.

“Power and automotive applications are especially interesting for Asia, as are automation and the area of lighting control. We see the e-bike and e-scooter segment as being a very large market in Asia. Especially in China, we can provide ‘best fit’ products with Infineon’s product range. E-mobility is being promoted much more strongly in China than in Europe,” points out Gerhard Weinhardt, Rutronik’s Global Marketing Director.

The power-related products that are particularly relevant for the Asian market include power management MOSFETs, IGBTs, SiCs and drivers. As far as the automotive segment is concerned, the emphasis is on HALL sensors and current sensors as well as specific microcontrollers. Encryption is another significant area.

Andreas Mangler, Head of Strategic Marketing at Rutronik, explains: “Infineon is a top player in the area of innovative products for the target markets. We have been working very successfully together with Infineon for over 20 years and have grown continuously. I am sure that we shall also be able to provide significant benefits for our Asian customers through the worldwide supply chain and centralized process management.”

The long-term aim of the distribution extension is to augment the share of the Asian market. China will be a major factor here, simply because of the size of the market. Rutronik will be relying on the strong FAE (Field Application Engineer) team and its design-in work.

中欧众创平台 “创未来”创业沙龙聚焦新商业时代的体育产业跨界




中国上海 2017年11月27日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 体育是一个悠久古老的行业,中国的体育市场产业化始于20世纪80年代。随着移动互联网时代的到来和高科技的快速发展,体育产业全面进入新商业时代,“跨界融合”成为体育产业发展的鲜明特征。

11月17日,由中欧众创平台主办的“创未来”创业沙龙第十二场“新商业时代的体育产业跨界”在中欧国际工商学院上海校区成功举办。本次沙龙邀请了数位体育产业的跨界创业者,来自不同细分领域的创业者们一同探讨了该行业未来的发展方向。

Liking Fit创始人CEO徐志岩表示,Liking Fit是一次健身行业的消费升级,利用智能手环代替传统健身房的工作比如门禁、防窃、体测等,从而提升健身房的平效和用户体验。然而,一切商业模式都将回归商业本质,即如何盈利。

Liking Fit是一家24小时自助健身房,其亮点在于能够让用户利用碎片时间进行健身。徐志岩认为,相比传统的会员制健身房,Liking Fit更能贴合用户的实际需求,让每一分投入都物有所值。

关于健身产业的未来,乐刻运动创始人、CEO韩伟分享了不同的见解。他表示,虽然乐刻用了18个月的时间,做到了线下最大的健身房的数量,但他却不认为乐刻是一个最大健身房连锁,而是一家互联网公司。互联网思维的本质是用户思维,首先要想怎么为用户创造价值,而不是想怎么赚钱。只有为用户创造价值,公司自然会获得更大的收益。

他指出,健身行业的特殊性体现在其“反市场”性,“从来没有哪个行业能像健身行业把用户‘做死’,即‘买断’性收费。乐刻从年费制转型成月费制是一个非常大的突破,”他表示。而后在健身房这个支柱产品的建设上搭建一条线,这个线上再铺一个技术场景。在技术后台上投入非常大,乐刻光技术部的人员就有近100个人。未来,乐刻会做很多线上的东西,可能是线上的管理工具和智能机械互联网,也可以做社区、直播、电商

体育产业中,除电竞以外,所有运动最终都会回归线下。悦跑圈创始人、CEO梁峰表示,跑步是一项需要付出努力才会有所收获的运动悦跑圈有很多小细节是违背互联网思维的,但却是符合体育精神的。比如,悦跑圈会删除一些被举报作弊的ID号,以确保为用户搭建一个干净纯粹的社交圈;在天气质量不佳的情况下,悦跑圈会建议用户不要外出跑步,以免伤害到身体。

梁峰认为,做企业不能光靠融资来生存,做的每一件事情都需要对得起自己的员工和投资人。悦跑圈有自己的盈利方式,主要渠道来自企业端,提供体育品牌数字营销方案、各类赛事奖牌定制和一些体育基础设施服务等。

同时,他强调互联网不会颠覆体育的本质,它只是一种手段,帮助企业更快、更高效地接触到用户,提升用户的体验。

媒体人出身的韩牧在2013年创办了懒熊体育。他指出,体育产业要关注三个方面:市场、证券和金融。过去的体育产业在扩大规模时遇到了瓶颈,就是因为没有做好市场化。一些好的项目依靠的是国家政府的资源,其商业逻辑则不具备可复制性。第二就是证券化,“懒熊”相信明年几个大标的上市成功的时候,一定会掀起一波浪潮。所以,他们会“坚持做金融业务,并且成立体育基金”。“‘懒熊’目前投资了20多个项目,包括“V+健身房”等。”韩牧透露。

韩牧也非常看好电竞产业,因为这是未来体育产业最有现金流和想象力的领域。目前,“懒熊”在做一个智库,把对体育感兴趣的人才汇聚到这个平台上,发挥他们的专长,同时弥补他们的不足。

星盟体育董事总经理、迈普数据总裁王锐睿博士表示,迈谱数据在和星盟的合作中,建立了“5A星盟指数”。围绕这个指数体系,可以在生命周期层面上合理地规划一个球员的职业生涯,用数据来跟踪球员的变化。这些数据也成为企业选择代言明星等事项的重要参考标准。

目前,中国是世界上最大的一个足球消费市场,一方面星盟体育将全球足球产业中优秀的球员、教练以及训练体系等带入中国职业足球,另一方面,它也在尽力将优秀国际赛事引入国内,让国内的球迷们感受巨星们的风采。

星盟体育执行总裁张森表示,星盟举办的任意球大师赛将汇集世界上众多知名球星,中国球迷能在本土看到巨星间的一对一对抗。同时,还会在世界任意球大师赛中融入多元化娱乐元素。

***Press Release*** Towngas Launches the Largest Landfill Gas Conversion Facility




Hong Kong, China, November 24, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - Towngas Launches the Largest Landfill Gas Conversion Facility
of its kind in Asia
Proportion of Renewable Energy usage expected to rise to 5%
Towngas continues to put “Waste to Energy” into practice

【Hong Kong, 24 November 2017】 The Hong Kong and China Gas Company Limited (Towngas) contributes in many ways toward building a green society and providing a healthier and more comfortable living environment for Hong Kong. Aiming to further improve air quality, the Tseung Kwan O South East New Territories (SENT) Landfill Gas Utilisation Project designed and implemented by Towngas was launched today. The SENT Landfill Gas Utilisation Project is the largest landfill gas conversion facility of its kind in Asia, with an investment of approximately HK$350 million. This is Towngas’ another landfill gas utilisation project, following its Ta Kwu Ling landfill gas project.

Mr Wong Kam-sing, Secretary for the Environment, officiated at the opening ceremony, along with Mr Joe Zorn, Chief Executive Officer of Veolia Hong Kong, as Guests of Honour, and Mr Alfred Chan, the Managing Director of Towngas. When the facility starts operation, the proportion of using renewable energy is estimated to increase to approximately 5%, representing a significant step forward in practicing Towngas’ green mission of “Waste to Energy”.

Targeted Facilities Sophisticated Technology
In response to the Hong Kong environment and the landfill waste situation, the treatment facilities used in the landfill gas utilisation facility at Tseung Kwan O are specially designed and custom-made. The installation of landfill gas compressors and desulfurizers, the adoption of low-temperature purifiers (-25?c) and Pressure Swing Absorption transformers, and the application of the most advanced technology together contribute to a production capacity of 8,000 cubic metres of synthetic natural gas per hour. The landfill gas collected will be converted into synthetic natural gas in the facility, then transmitted to the offtake station in Tseng Lan Shue through a 12 km pipeline and finally integrated into the gas supply network. When the facility starts operation, it is projected that it will reduce the emission of carbon dioxide by 56,000 tonnes per year, equivalent to the 2.4 million tree seedlings. The facility will be one of the largest energy conservation and emission reduction environmental projects in Hong Kong.

Virtual Reality Game Zone at Education Centre
After the opening ceremony, Mr Wong Kam-sing, Mr Joe Zorn and Mr Alfred Chan, visited the landfill gas utilisation facility to understand more about the process of converting and transmitting landfill gas. The officiating guests also visited the Education Centre which features the theme of “Waste Reduction at Source, Conversion of Waste into Energy”. They reviewed a number of exhibition panels introducing the landfills and renewable energy applications, and the officiating guests tried the Virtual Reality (VR) game in the VR Game Zone, which are designed to help the public understand more about the source of landfill gas and the procedure of converting waste into energy.

Building of a Green Society and the Promotion of “Waste to Energy”
Mr Wong Kam-sing said, “Today, the opening of the SENT Landfill Gas Utilisation Project represents a milestone on “Waste to Energy” in Hong Kong. I would like to send my heartfelt thanks to Towngas and Green Valley Landfill Limited on the completion of this project, thus contributing to Hong Kong’s “Waste to Energy” effort and easing the impact of climate change.”

Mr Alfred Chan was delighted with the launch of the landfill gas utilisation project at Tseung Kwan O, “Towngas is honoured to collaborate with the Environmental Protection Department and Green Valley Landfill Limited on this important project. This facility at Tseung Kwan O is the largest of its kind in Asia and the ejector designs at the off-take station is world’s number one. With the launching of the SENT Landfill Gas Utilisation facility, renewable energy ratio in town gas production will be increased to about 5%, signifying an important milestone of Towngas’ contribution in environmental protection.”

永恒铂金 爱久弥新国际铂金协会PGI携手国内当红男明星杨烁拍摄“爱的纪念日”宣传大片




中国上海 2017年11月22日 /ChinaNewswire.com/ 近日,国际铂金协会PGI®携手国内当红男明星杨烁拍摄“爱的纪念日”宣传大片,传递“永恒铂金 爱久弥新”的主题,让每一个平凡的日子都因为用心付出成为了爱的纪念日,而铂金,从不缺席每一次爱的表达。

宣传片中,杨烁在特殊的纪念日里精心准备了一个惊喜:跨越10,000公里为爱深情告白,举手投足间均展现他对待爱情深情而细腻的一面。片中,简单的“我爱你”并不能表达心中的感情,深情的话在他口中有着许多婉转而美好的讲法;就连每一句“道歉”的背后,都是他对爱人细致入微的呵护。

告别一切荧幕设定,真实生活中的杨烁有着一个成熟男人应有的全部魅力:对工作尽责、对生活认真、对爱情执着,他始终在坚持努力地成就更优秀的自己。帅气迷人的外表下,杨烁对爱一直抱有一份赤诚。他曾在采访时表示,“人这一辈子一定要有一次轰轰烈烈的爱情。”这次,杨烁选择为心爱的她亲手送上精心挑选的铂金“星烁”系列项链,让铂金的历久弥新成为永恒爱情的象征,完美诉说内心对爱恒久的忠贞与守护。

【铂金小知识】

Q:如何辨别真正的铂金首饰?

A:辨别铂金首饰最简单有效的方法就是认准首饰内的铂金专有标志——Pt或铂。它就像铂金的身份证,只有标明铂金专有标志的首饰,才是真正的铂金首饰。根据国家规定,每件铂金首饰的背面都必须刻有铂金专有标志,并在标志后注明铂金纯度的千分数(即铂含量),如“Pt900”或“铂900”(代表铂含量为900‰),“足铂”则表示铂含量≥990‰。

The ICX 7650 has fixed 40 Gigabit and 100 Gigabit Ethernet ports that can be used as uplinks or stacking ports, further supplementing user bandwidth requirements by providing modular uplinks that can scale from 10 to 100 Gigabits. With all the features of ICX switches, such as simplified management with campus fabric and advanced stacking capabilities, these switches are ideal for customers in markets with high-bandwidth requirements including education, hospitality, federal government and small-to-medium enterprise (SME).

“The new Ruckus ICX 7650 switch expands Ruckus’ offering in multi-gigabit Ethernet switching, delivering more multi-gigabit ports, higher performance with up to 100G uplinks and more PoE power to support high density wireless deployments, including future Wi-Fi standards such as 802.11ax and beyond,” said Nolan Greene, senior research analyst, enterprise networks, IDC. “This new family of switches is well suited for many vertical segments including Primary and Higher Education, Carpeted Enterprise, Large Public Venues and Government markets that value a high performance, future-proof network platform.”

Nordic Semiconductor-powered Bluetooth Low Energy wearable continuously measures, analyzes, and reports heart rate values




Hong Kong, China, November 9, 2017 /ChinaNewswire.com/ - ‘K1’ from Wearpai Technology operates for up to 10 days on a single charge while employing Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC to continuously monitor users’ activity and physical condition

Nordic Semiconductor today announces that China-based Wearpai Technology Co., Ltd has integrated Nordic’s award-winning Bluetooth#174; Low Energy (Bluetooth LE) nRF52832 System-on-Chip (SoC) in its ‘K1’ wearable. The product is designed for OEMs and enables developers with limited RF design experience to efficiently develop bespoke sports- and health-based wearables that monitor physiological parameters while displaying real-time feedback for consumers.

The K1’s core function is to continuously monitor heart rate values using photoplethysmography, a technique which employs green and infrared (IR) LEDs to measure the varying absorption of light at the wrist as blood flows through it. The K1 can also provide real-time analysis of other physiological parameters and physical activities. For example, the wearable can track calories, sleep patterns, steps, and walking/running distance, enabling OEM developers flexibility to select which parameters are most important for their target audience. In addition, the wearable displays the time, date, and messages/caller ID when wirelessly linked to the user’s smartphone. Either the IP68-waterproof smart bracelet or the user’s smartphone can be used to locate the other device should it be temporarily misplaced.

Developers can use Wearpai Technology’s open Application Programming Interface (API) to customize applications for the K1, as well as create branded iOS and Android mobile apps to suit their own requirements.

Nordic’s nRF52832 SoC provides Bluetooth LE connectivity between the wearable and a Bluetooth 4.0 (and later) iOS or Android smartphone to transfer physiological data to the smartphone or relay message/caller ID from smartphone to wearable. From the smartphone, users can also access more detailed information about their physical condition via Wearpai Technology’s Wearfit 1.0 or Wearfit 2.0 companion app.

Supported by the Nordic SoC’s low power consumption characteristics, the K1’s rechargeable Lithium-ion battery can last for approximately one week of average use or up to 10 days in low power mode.

Nordic’s nRF52832 Bluetooth LE SoC, a member of Nordic’s sixth generation of ultra low power (ULP) wireless connectivity solutions, combines the 64MHz, 32-bit ARM#174; Cortex#174; M4F processor with a 2.4GHz multiprotocol radio (supporting Bluetooth 5, ANT#8482;, and proprietary 2.4GHz RF software) featuring -96dB RX sensitivity, with 512kB Flash memory and 64kB RAM. When launched, the SoC was the world’s highest performance single-chip Bluetooth LE solution.

The SoC is supplied with Nordic’s S132 SoftDevice, a Bluetooth 5-certified RF software protocol stack for building advanced Bluetooth LE applications. The S132 SoftDevice supports Central, Peripheral, Broadcaster, and Observer Bluetooth low energy roles, supports up to twenty connections, and enables concurrent role operation.

“We selected the nRF52832 SoC to take advantage of its superior ultra low power consumption and performance,” says Jobs Chen, CEO at Weapai Technology. “Nordic’s Bluetooth LE technology extends the K1’s standby time and prolongs the service life of its lithium battery, which is essential for any sports- and health-based wearable.

“Other factors which encouraged us to work with Nordic included the company’s large team of skilled application engineers, rich array of options for peripheral devices and time in the ultra low power wireless market.”

Interest in this vision of industrial ultra-efficiency is particularly acute in China, where the "Made in China 2025" initiative aims to drive the accelerated development of 10 key industrial sectors, including next-generation information technology (IT); new-energy vehicles; electrical power-supply equipment; and automated machine tools and robotics.

Wireless for the IIoT
Above all, the formation of the IIoT demands highly integrated low-power wireless solutions. Available from Rutronik, the RS9113 n-Link module family is based on Redpine Signals' RS9113 high-integration, ultra-low-power, single spatial stream, dual-band IEEE 802.11n + Bluetooth 4.0 + ZigBee SoC, which provides an extremely versatile solution for embedded wireless applications.

Together, these RS9113-based chips and modules provide a set of convergence solutions for integration into mobile, and HMI (human-machine interface) and M2M (machine-to-machine) communication devices.

HMI and M2M interfaces for the IIoT
The formation of the IIoT also demands sophisticated HMI and M2M imaging and display solutions. For these applications, Rutronik offers advanced optical sensors, including the VEML6040 RGB color sensor and the VCNL4200 proximity and ambient-light sensor, both from Vishay Intertechnology.

The VEML6040 color sensor senses RGB and white light and integrates photodiodes, amplifiers, and analog and digital circuitry into a single chip. VEML6040 achieves an ambient-light spectral sensitivity that is extremely close to real human-eye response.

The VCNL4200 proximity and ambient light sensor integrates a high-sensitivity, long-distance proximity sensor (PS), an ambient light sensor (ALS), and 940nm IRED into one small package. It incorporates photodiodes, amplifiers, and analog-to-digital conversion circuits in a single chip. The 16-bit high-resolution ALS offers excellent sensing capabilities, whether for a dark or high-transparency lens design.

Electric motors – the controller challenge
Next-generation high-efficiency electric motors will be a key enabling technology for the IIoT, particularly in China, where the development of electric "new-energy" vehicles is an urgent national priority. The demand is for lower power consumption and motors designed and engineered to the highest standards. The range of high-quality industrial motor controllers available through Rutronik includes the ARM-based HVC4223F embedded motor controller, from Micronas.

A member of the HAL#174; 15xy family of Hall-effect switches from Micronas, the HVC 4223F flex servo-drive is powered by a 32-bit ARM#174; Cortex#174;-M3 CPU core and supports complex motor-control algorithms, such as Space Vector Modulation (SVM), for permanent magnet synchronous motors (PMSM), in addition to six-step commutation with sensor feedback or sensorless control, as well as various stepper configurations.

Preventing fire and catastrophic failure
Throughout the industrial sector, technology and materials must operate without fault and with high precision, especially when they are in continuous operation. Rutronik's industrial portfolio aims specifically to combat single points of system failure and costly downtime.

The LSP10 thermally protected Surge Protection Device (SPD), for example, from Littelfuse, is specially designed to provide outdoor and commercial LED lighting fixtures with transient overvoltage protection. In particular, it incorporates Littelfuse varistor technology for thermal protection and has a built-in thermal disconnect function that provides additional protection against catastrophic failure and hazardous fire, even under the extreme circumstances of varistor end-of-life or sustained overvoltage conditions.

Likewise the JS series of detector switches, from CK Components, reinforces system safety. These devices are in a low-profile sub-miniature slide-switch design, for use in telecommunications products, computer peripherals, and more.

As a representative member of the JS series, the JS202011AQN slide switch, in a double-pole, double-throw (DPDT) configuration, with a PC-pin termination style, has a maximum current rating of 0.3A at 6VDC. As a detector switch designed for industrial environments, it is able to operate over a wide temperature range of -40°C–85°C.
