BANGALORE, India, June 27, 2022 — Strengthening its proposition for Gen-Z further, Myntra announces the launch of its Campus Ambassador program, onboarding 500 aspiring fashion influencers from leading colleges across tier-1 and tier-2 cities in the country to engage deeply with its thriving cohort of Gen-Z consumers.

Myntra announced that the Campus Ambassador program is a part of the overall Myntra StyleCast Creator initiative, which comprises over 1000 uber-trendy and fashion-first Gen-Z influencers with a deep passion for creating fresh digital content. Myntra chooses campus influencers based on their relevance with the Gen-Z audience, understanding of the content creation industry, their knack for edgy and trendy fashion, and their diversity and reach. Through this program, Myntra will enable opportunities for these young, budding fashion enthusiasts to learn the ropes of content creation and hone their skills. In addition, they will also get the chance to be mentored by some of the famous macro Myntra Style Squad influencers and be featured on Myntra’s live commerce propositions, Myntra-Studio and M-Live, and social media channels.

The Campus Squad includes an array of students aged 17-21 years from some of the leading institutions in the country, including the Indian Institute of Art & Design, Pearl Academy, NIFT, Lady Shri Ram College, Delhi University, Mount Carmel College - Bengaluru, Indian Institute of Fashion Technology and Symbiosis Institute of Design - Pune to name a few. These campus ambassadors are the faces of Myntra StyleCast on their respective campuses. According to Myntra, they are among the coolest and the most fashionable kids on campus that everyone looks up to for their fresh and edgy fashion sensibilities. With Gen-Z’s heavy reliance on social media influencers for shopping inspiration, this program will help Myntra StyleCast amplify its share of voice on social media and drive end conversions on Myntra, creating a higher volume of contextual and engaging content.

As Myntra continues to strengthen its offering for fashion-forward customers across tiers, age groups, and genders, the creator-backed commerce plays a crucial role in regulating decision-making and awareness amongst the consumer groups in question.

The top trending categories on Myntra StyleCast include dresses, tops, jeans, and t-shirts, which make up 55% of the overall demand for the class.

Padmakumar Pal, Vice President & Business Head - Apparel, Myntra, said, “We are excited to launch the Campus Ambassador program, as it provides budding influencers an opportunity to grow in the creator ecosystem and become the country’s leading fashion influencers.

On Olympic Day, while the world is moving together for peace, International Olympic Committee (IOC) President Thomas Bach has reiterated the role sport can play in building bridges in our divided world and promoting global solidarity.

“The Olympic Games, which unite the entire world in peaceful competition, are a powerful symbol of peace,” said President Bach. “Our Olympic mission is not political. Our Olympic mission is humanitarian.”

Recently, global humanitarian issues have forced the world to reflect. Ongoing conflicts and the growing number of people displaced worldwide have reaffirmed an urgent need for solidarity and peace in our divided world.

On 23 June, as Olympic Day promotes this year’s message of “Together, for a Peaceful World,” the IOC President stressed that the need for solidarity and peace remains the guiding principle of the Olympic Movement and highlights the symbolic importance of the Olympic Games. “Without solidarity, there is no peace,” he said.

“In these divisive and contentious times, people worldwide are longing for a unifying force that brings humankind together. In this respect, the Olympic Movement has a lot to offer with our mission to unite the entire world in peaceful competition,” Bach continued.

Olympic Day 2022: #MoveForPeace

Celebrated every year on 23 June since 1948, Olympic Day provides a moment for everyone to come together and get active with purpose.

This year, as the world continues seeking togetherness, the IOC and the Olympic Movement highlight the power of sport to build a better world by bringing people together in peace. As part of this, people are encouraged to move together for peace today through various local physical and digital activities.

Over 135 National Olympic Committees (NOCs) have registered their commitment to Olympic Day by hosting activities such as Olympic Day runs, outdoor games for families, introductions to new sports, meetings with Olympians, and workshops on the Olympic values. In addition, IOC will organize Digital initiatives, such as virtual Olympic challenges, online workouts, virtual live chats with Olympians, online quizzes, and webinars on the Olympic values worldwide.

Everyone can join by sharing how they are moving on Olympic Day with #MoveForPeace and #OlympicDay, International Olympic Committee said.

PARIS, June 21, 2022 — Viktor&Rolf has announced that acclaimed singer, dancer, and actress FKA twigs will be the face of GOOD FORTUNE, the brand’s new fragrance.

FKA twigs is a Grammy Award-nominated artist whose innovations across the fields of music, visual arts, and dance represent future worlds and draw from past ones.

She debuted as a songwriter and singer in 2012 with EP1. Like her dancing, her music draws on various electronic, R&B, and trip-hop styles. Her Mercury Prize-nominated debut album, LP1, was released in August 2014. She directed four videos for her third EP, M3LL155X (read as Melissa), and Soundtrack 7, a dance film created and filmed at the Manchester International Festival. She has collaborated with Dua Lipa and The Weeknd.

“We’ve been fans of twigs for years,” say Viktor&Rolf designers Viktor Horsting and Rolf Snoeren, “and we’re happy to welcome her to the Viktor&Rolf family. Not only is she one of today’s biggest pop stars, but she’s also hugely creative. She’s an icon and absolutely the right personality for GOOD FORTUNE.”

“I’ve always loved perfume,” says FKA twigs. “Scent has always been an integral part of my sensory world, and creatively collaborating with Viktor&Rolf on this project has been very fulfilling. I feel there’s this bond that unites us. Becoming part of their universe feels like magic, a dream come true.”

Following the ongoing success of FLOWERBOMB, launched in 2005, Viktor&Rolf unveiled GOOD FORTUNE. With this significant new statement, the brand has created a fragrance that expresses modern spirituality, inviting women wanting to embrace their inner modern mystic to follow their way to make their destiny.

FKA twigs will feature in a mystical ‘new-genre’ campaign film directed by Andrew Thomas Huang, to be released later this month. Legendary fashion photographers Inez & Vinoodh created the campaign’s magnetic still photography.

The campaign’s soundtrack, “Killer,” was tailor-made for the campaign by FKA twigs and will be officially unveiled in conjunction with the GOOD FORTUNE campaign.

Prime Minister Modi launches Historic Torch Relay for 44th Chess Olympiad.

• India to host Chess Olympiad for the first time.

Chess Olympiad Relay

New Delhi, June 19, 2022 — Prime Minister Narendra Modi of India launched the historic torch relay for the 44th Chess Olympiad today at Indira Gandhi Stadium, New Delhi. FIDE (World Chess Federation) President Arkady Dvorkovich handed over the torch to the Prime Minister, who handed it over to Grandmaster Vishwanathan Anand. This torch will visit 75 cities in 40 days before the final culmination at Mahabalipuram near Chennai. At every location, chess grandmasters of the state will receive the torch. Prime Minister Modi also made the Khelo Chess Ceremonial move, followed by Ms. Koneru Humpy making a move. Union Ministers Shri Anurag Singh Thakur and Shri Nisith Pramanik, Chess players and enthusiasts, Ambassadors, and Chess Officials were also present.

FIDE (World Chess Federation) President Arkady Dvorkovich thanked the Government of India for starting the new tradition of the torch relay, which will popularise and galvanize the game worldwide. “FIDE is grateful to Prime Minister Narendra Modi for his presence and honoring us,” he said. The FIDE President hoped that Chess would become part of all schools across India and worldwide. He said, “India is the fastest-growing Chess country today, and you have all grounds to be proud of that. We are grateful for your leadership for all the fantastic work you are doing in the interest of Chess.”

Addressing the gathering, the Prime Minister said, “Today, the first torch relay for Chess Olympiad games is starting from India. India will host the Chess Olympiad games for the first time this year. We are proud that a sport, starting from its birthplace and leaving its mark worldwide, has become a passion for many countries.” He continued, “Centuries ago, the torch of this sport went to the whole world in the form of Chaturanga from India. Today the first Olympiad torch of Chess is also coming out of India. Today, when India is celebrating its 75th year of independence, Amrit Mahotsav, this Chess Olympiad torch will also go to 75 cities of the country.” He said, “FIDE has decided that the torch relay for each Chess Olympiad game will start from India itself. This honor is not only the honor of India but also the recognition of this glorious heritage of Chess. I congratulate FIDE and all its members for this”

The Prime Minister dwelled on the Indian heritage in Chess. He said, “our ancestors invented games like Chaturanga or Chess for analytical and problem-solving brains. Chess, via India, reached many countries and became very popular. Today, Chess is being used in schools as an educational tool for young people, for children.” He noted that India has consistently improved its Chess performance in recent years. India’s contingent in the Chess Olympiad is the biggest this year.

The Prime Minister talked about many lessons that Chess gives us in our lives. Underlining the need for the proper support for everyone irrespective of their place in life, the Prime Minister said, “Just like every piece of Chess has its unique strength and a unique ability. It becomes the most powerful if you make the right move with a piece and use its power properly. This specialty of Chessboard gives us a big message about life. If given the right support and environment, no goal is impossible even for the weakest.”

The Prime Minister highlighted another lesson from Chess: “Another great feature of the game of Chess is farsightedness. Chess tells us that real success comes from far-sighted rather than short-term success.”

The 44th Chess Olympiad will take place in Chennai from July 28 to August 10, 2022. The prestigious competition, organized since 1927, is hosted in India for the first time and in Asia after 30 years. With 189 countries participating, this will be the most extensive participation in any Chess Olympiad.

The International Monetary Fund (IMF) sees further slowdown hitting global economic growth in 2022

Washington, DC, June 15, 2022 — The International Monetary Fund (IMF) sees further slowdown hitting global economic growth in 2022, IMF spokesperson Gerry Rice said in Washington, DC, following World Bank and OECD moves to cut their forecasts.

The IMF will publish the next revision of its World Economic Outlook report in July, and if it materializes, that would be its third downgrade this year. In April, the IMF had already slashed its forecast for global economic growth by nearly a whole percentage point to 3.6% in 2022 and 2023.

Fund spokesman Gerry Rice said several factors, including a slowdown in China, persistently high fuel and food prices, and many Central Banks hiking rates, were acting together to slow growth.

“We have inflation continuing to rise, particularly in several advanced economies leading to tightening monetary policy. So, you know, we’re seeing this confluence of crises. The Managing Director discussed the combination of all these things going in the same direction of downside risks. And so, again, I think you can reasonably expect that there will be a downward revision of the growth forecast for 2022 compared to what we were forecasting only a month-and-a-half ago,” Rice told reporters.

Times Higher Education announces Asia University Rankings 2022

Times Higher Education

Nagoya, Japan, June 01, 2022 — Times Higher Education has published its Asia University Rankings 2022, revealing the top institutions across the diverse and dynamic continent.

There are now six Saudi Arabian universities in the top 100, up from four last year, and four in the top 50, double the number in 2021.

The best-performing institution in Saudi Arabia is King Abdulaziz University, which ranks 28. The public university in Jeddah was established in 1967 by business people before being converted to a public institution seven years later. It scores especially highly for international collaboration (93.6 out of 100) and citations (92.4).

King Abdulaziz University ranks joint 190th in THE’s World University Rankings 2022; the results, published last year, marked the first time a university from Saudi Arabia got included in the top 200.

Overall, there are 15 Saudi universities in the Asia rankings, up from 10 in 2021 and seven in 2020.

Following King Abdulaziz is Alfaisal University in 34th position. The private, not-for-profit institution is in Riyadh.

King Saud University, a public institution in Riyadh, ranks joint 44th, up from 53rd last year. King Saud was the first Saudi university established in 1957 and was initially named Riyadh University.

King Fahd University of Petroleum and Minerals also ranks among the top 50, at 48th position, up from joint 84th last year.

Vision 2030, Saudi Arabia’s national strategy introduced by Mohammed bin Salman in 2016, includes a target of at least five Saudi universities ranking among the top 200 in international rankings. The plan aims to move the Saudi economy from an over-reliance on oil revenues to a more balanced financial model in which higher education is integral.

China still leads the Asia rankings, with Tsinghua and Peking universities taking the top two spots for the third consecutive year. The country has secured its dominance in the region, being home to nearly a third of institutions (30) in the top 100.

In contrast, Japan has six fewer universities in the top 100 than in 2020, with just eight, down from 14. However, it is still the most-represented nation overall, with 118 institutions.

The Asia University Rankings use the same 13 performance indicators as the World University Rankings, but they are recalibrated to reflect the attributes of Asia’s institutions.
