VIKTOR&ROLF


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.

Global Survey Comparing University Mindsets and Student Expectations Identifies Critical Shifts in the Learner Experience


Global Anthology research study reveals accessibility barriers and technology needs in higher education.


Global university survey

BOCA RATON, Fla., May 17, 2022 — Anthology, a leading provider of education solutions that support the entire learner lifecycle, today announced the results of its 2022 global research study: Comparing Global University Mindsets and Student Expectations. The study surveyed more than 5,000 higher education leaders and current students from countries worldwide, including the United States, Australia, Brazil, Colombia, India, Japan, Spain, Saudi Arabia, South Africa, and the United Kingdom.

Findings revealed that student expectations following the pandemic do not fully align with what university leaders envision for the future, indicating an opportunity for higher education institutions to adjust to the learner experience to support better outcomes.

“As universities continue to drive digital transformation, they face new hurdles around everything from course delivery and support services to accessibility and how they equip their students and staff with technology,” said Jim Milton, Chairman and CEO at Anthology. “We believe that technology plays a vital role in shaping the future of higher education across the globe, and results from this study validate that viewpoint as leaders consider the impact of technology and data on the overall student experience.”

• Financial Barriers and Lack of Technology Access

Outside the pandemic, the economy continues to have the most significant impact on learners across all regions (73 percent), followed by a lack of access to technology (35 percent). Lack of technology access was significantly higher in the Middle East and Africa, where 54 percent of students indicated this was a challenge. University leaders in most regions are mainly in sync with these challenges. Still, only 30 percent of higher education leaders in the Middle East and Africa felt that technology access was a concern for their students, indicating a discrepancy between their perception and the student experience.

• Hybrid Instruction for the Foreseeable Future

More than 80 percent of students globally now prefer that at least some of their courses or instructional meetings take place online. As a result, leaders are moving their universities in the right direction, with more than a third (38 percent) indicating that a mix of online and in-person course delivery would be the model at their institution by 2025, increasing from 16 percent currently.

Nearly a quarter of North American leaders (24 percent) stated that courses would still be offered in an entirely in-person format by 2025 - a significantly higher percentage than any other region. The highest percentage of students interested in fully asynchronous courses were from North America, representing the most significant gap compared to student preferences for how classes are offered.

• Investing in Holistic Technology

Learners globally want - and expect - technology to be more prevalent in their higher education experience. University leaders agree, with 60 percent stating that their university currently lacks the appropriate digital learning tools to help students succeed. While only 26 percent of university leaders have significantly increased the number of digital learning tools utilized over the past two years, more than half are considering additional technology investments.

The majority (94 percent) of university leaders agree that a holistic view of learner data pulled across multiple systems would benefit their team and help more students achieve their goals. The same percentage indicates that their university is actively looking for new opportunities to aggregate and analyze data to drive more insights, ultimately seeking to use data to help improve outcomes for student populations through personalization.

Anthology partnered with Thrive Analytics to execute its 2022 survey, Comparing Global University Mindsets and Student Expectations. The survey targeted student respondents currently enrolled at a higher education institution pursuing a degree or diploma. University leader respondents are senior leaders (Dean, Provost, Rector, etc.) at a higher education institution. In total, 2,572 current university leaders and 2,725 students completed the survey.

“Anthology” offers the largest EdTech ecosystem globally for education, recently combining with Blackboard to support more than 150 million users in 80 countries.

The Opening Ceremony will see the ‘Bam Bam’ ‘Senorita,’ and ‘Havana’ hitmaker takes center stage to kick off one of the World’s most significant sporting events and bring the energy and atmosphere of the UEFA Champions League final to millions of viewers tuning in around the World.

The 5-minute performance would be a breath-taking carnival-themed celebration, brought to life through a stunning display of costumes, dancers, and musicians, choreographed to deliver a high-energy spectacular to fans in the stadium and at home, live from the Stade de France in Paris on Saturday, May 28.

I intend on putting on an amazing show, bringing together the spirit of my Latin heritage and a feeling of togetherness for sports and music fans all over the World - I can’t wait!”

To announce Camila’s performance at the UEFA Champions League final, Pepsi shared a short video via its YouTube channel, showing what fans can expect in Paris. In the clip, playful animations and floral patterns surround Camila taking inspiration from the iconic Oaxaca carnival in Mexico.

Each year, the Opening Ceremony sees some of the hottest music artists in the World put on an electrifying, show-stopping performance that brings enormous buzz to the UEFA Champions League final in true Pepsi style. The 2022 Opening Ceremony is no different and will be running across the international Pepsi trademark, including Pepsi, Pepsi Black / MAX, and Diet Pepsi.

UEFA marketing director Guy-Laurent Epstein commented: “We are excited to be collaborating with our long-standing partners at Pepsi for yet another highly entertaining Opening Ceremony performance at the 2022 UEFA Champions League final. These events always provide the ultimate cross-pollination of sport and music, which we know fans love to watch - and Pepsi is the perfect partner to help us do that.

Silverstone, UK, May 8, 2022 - Barwell Motorsport’s Sandy Mitchell and Adam Balon delivered Lamborghini Squadra Corse’s first victory in the British GT Championship season with a measured drive under heavy pressure during the three-hour Silverstone 500. Factory Driver Mitchell had helped the #72 Lamborghini Huracán GT3 EVO take pole position on Saturday before coming out on top by just under a second at the end of the opening endurance event of the year.

After two sprint races to kick off the season at Oulton Park, the field moved to the Home of British Motorsport for the first long-distance meeting of the year. Mitchell and Balon began the weekend strongly in Saturday’s free practice sessions, setting the seventh quickest time in the morning before topping the times in the afternoon FP2.

The leading pair of Lamborghinis had opened a healthy margin over the chasing pack, with Balon hanging onto the pace of Malykhin. Balon then moved back into the race lead as Malykhin made his first pit stop after the half-hour marker. Mitchell took over the reins of the #72 Huracán after Balon - who become embroiled in a lively battle with the McLaren of Morgan Tillbrook - made his first stop 15 minutes later.

With Mitchell at the wheel, the Barwell Motorsport car established a lead of just under five seconds, which extended by another second by the time Balon got back behind the wheel for his second stint. Mitchell was back in for the final 45 minutes, in which he maintained a diminishing advantage over another McLaren - with Marvin Kirchhofer in the car.

Despite it coming down to as little as two-tenths of a second in the closing stages, Mitchell controlled the lead to take a deserved victory at the finish, ensuring Lamborghini’s third successive win in the Silverstone endurance event.

Red Bull Basement


ISTANBUL, March 30, 2022 — Inspiration was in the air as finalist teams from universities worldwide converged in Istanbul to pitch their ingenious ideas at the Red Bull Basement Global climax Final 2021.

The program empowers student innovators to kickstart their ideas to drive a positive impact on campus and disrupt the world tomorrow. While the Arizona State University team made the biggest impression with their “Jotted” idea, the four-day collaboration revealed ingenious concepts for everything from climate action to career tools.

Red Bull Basement received more than 4,000 applications worldwide. It was a new high, and in all, 44 finalist teams from 43 countries worked for months to bring their ideas to life. The vast majority of the finalists attended the Global Final in person, with a handful participating virtually.

The event in Istanbul was an immersive experience that allowed the student teams to network and engage in workshops with visionary thought leaders. The sessions in the schedule packed with opportunities included:

The event concluded with the top 10 teams making their final pitch to a judging panel of prominent global visionaries. Again, the winning Jotted idea from Arizona State University made a deep impression. Brinlee Kidd and Sylvia Lopez are developing an automated, real-time note-taking tool that generates flashcards and creates practice quizzes. The students believe that Jotted could revolutionize how people find and aggregate knowledge worldwide. The team will now benefit from additional resources and contacts to fully bring their idea to reality.

Describing their experience at the Global Final, the Jotted teammates said, “Everybody wins when you come here. The people we’ve met are some of the best and brightest in the world - so exciting and interesting and active. With the things that we learned, from the business point of view and the technical perspective, we feel much more confident moving forward in our venture. We’re turning a new page in an incredible book, and we’re excited to go on this journey.”

Rounding out the top 10 were:

Most ideas focused on categories based on the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals. The top three focus areas were Education, Smart Cities, and Body & Mind.

Following events in Berlin (2018) and Toronto (2019) and a virtual Global Workshop in 2020, the Red Bull Basement Global Final in Istanbul was much awaited.

Over the years, Red Bull Basement participants have gone on to realize their ideas for global impact. For example, the winning team from 2019, “Audvice,” has made significant strides, receiving six-figure funding for their learning and collaboration tool in the first investment round. While the 2020 winners Lylo are now working to bring their ecologically friendly reinvention of the clothes washing machine to market.

Red Bull Basement’s Global Partners include NTT, Intel, and Porsche.

IQAir World Air Quality

GOLDACH, Switzerland, March 22, 2022 — The 2021 World Air Quality Report finds that only three percent of cities and not even one country met the latest World Health Organization’s (WHO) PM2.5 annual air quality guideline. The report analyzes PM2.5 air pollution measurements from air monitoring stations in 6,475 cities in 117 countries, regions, and territories.

IQAir’s 2021 World Air Quality Report is the first major global air quality report based on the updated annual WHO air quality guideline for PM2.5. The new procedure was released in September 2021 and cut the existing annual PM2.5 guideline value from 10 µg/m3 to 5 µg/m3.

Fine particle pollution, known as PM2.5, is commonly accepted as the most harmful, widely monitored air pollutant and is a major contributing factor to health effects such as asthma, stroke, heart and lung diseases. In addition, PM2.5 leads to millions of premature deaths every year.

Key findings:

The top five most polluted countries in 2021 were:

New Delhi (India) is the world’s most polluted capital city for the second consecutive year, followed by Dhaka (Bangladesh), N’Djamena (Chad), Dushanbe (Tajikistan), and Muscat (Oman).

Air quality in China continued to improve in 2021. More than half of the cities in China included in the report saw lower levels of air pollution when compared to the previous year. Pollution levels within the capital city of Beijing continued a nine-year trend of improved air quality, driven by emission control and reduction of coal power plant activity and other high emission industries.

Central and South Asia had some of the world’s worst air quality in 2021 and was home to 47 of the world’s 50 most polluted cities. The only two cities that met the updated WHO PM2.5 guideline were Zhezqazghan and Chu (Kazakhstan).

Air quality monitoring remains sparse in Africa, South America, and the Middle East. However, progress has been made by low-cost air quality sensors often operated by non-profit organizations and citizen scientists.

“Shockingly, no major city or country provides safe and healthy air to their citizens according to the latest World Health Organization air quality guideline,” said Frank Hammes, CEO of IQAir. “This report underscores just how much work remains to be done to ensure that everyone has safe, clean, and healthy air to breathe. The time for action is now.”

“We understand better than ever before how air pollution damages our health and economies. This report is a wake-up call, revealing how people are denied access to clean air. Particulate matter air pollution is produced by burning coal, oil, and fossil gas, unsustainable development, and agricultural activities. Addressing the air pollution crisis requires developing renewable energy resources and clean-powered, accessible public transport. Moreover, solutions to air pollution are also solutions to the climate crisis. Breathing clean air should be a basic human right, not a privilege,” said Greenpeace India Campaign manager Avinash Chanchal.

The 2021 World Air Quality Report is based on PM2.5 air pollution data from ground-based air quality monitoring stations in 6,475 cities in 117 countries, regions, and territories. Of the air quality monitoring stations included in this report, 44 percent were operated by governmental agencies.

IQAir is a Swiss-based air quality technology company that empowers individuals, organizations, and communities to breathe cleaner air through information, collaboration, and technology solutions. IQAir provides affordable air quality monitoring and data solutions to governments, NGOs, educational institutions, corporations, and individuals in over 100 countries.

TTata Elxsi

BANGALORE, India, March 2, 2022 — Tata Elxsi, amongst the world’s leading design and technology service providers, was today unveiled as the title partner for the 2022 Bowler Defender Challenge series. The global specialist in design thinking and digital technology development sees the challenge series as a perfect demonstration of Xtreme Engineering - where technology, engineering, and design come together to deliver the X factor in pace and performance.

The Bowler Defender Challenge held over 7 UK rounds with 12 teams competing in identical Bowler Defender rally vehicles, pits drivers, navigators, and vehicles against various competitive rally conditions. Each team will need to master the terrain and conditions to challenge for the championship from safari and hill rally through fast tarmac and gravel. The development of the Bowler Defender, from mule to full competition car in less than two years, is a prime example of the work Tata Elxsi undertakes. Converting the highly-capable Defender from a production passenger car to a rally-prepared competition vehicle requires fully integrating the existing systems into a competitive format.

Nitin Pai, Chief Strategy Officer and CMO Tata Elxsi commented, “The opportunity for Tata Elxsi to partner with the Bowler Defender Challenge gives us a superb platform to showcase our brand. With constant demands on the teams and the support crews, a high-performance environment brings the term “Xtreme Engineering” to life. Bowler is a world-class competition brand, and we see them as a perfect partner for our products and services in the modern automotive industry. We’re excited to be part of the action!”

Bowler General Manager Calum Mckechnie said, “We are excited to have Tata Elxsi partner with the Bowler Defender Challenge. To have a global leader onboard in the first year is a strongly positive endorsement of the series, the development work, and the direction in which Bowler is forging. Tata Elxsi understands perfectly the engineering and integration aspects of our business and the pressure to find solutions that only competition can bring. It’s going to be an exciting year for our partnership.”

The first round of the 2022 Bowler Defender Challenge takes place on the 5th and 6th of March at Walters Arena, near Neath, Wales.

Incorporated in 1989, Tata Elxsi is amongst the world’s leading design and technology services providers across industries, including Automotive, Media, Communications, Healthcare, and Transportation.

Bowler, founded in 1985, is based in Belper, Derbyshire, and pioneered the production of dedicated off-road competition cars in the UK.

Bowler provides its customers with competition racing events to provide them with the driving skills and technical competition knowledge necessary to undertake international rally raid events.

Sant’Agata Bolognese/Livigno (Italy), February 24, 2022 - Lamborghini returns to the ice ring in the beautiful landscape of Livigno in February 2022. Finding the world’s most perfect playgrounds for winter sports vacations, Lamborghini clients get behind the wheel for a three-day Accademia Neve. Freezing temperatures of around zero during the daytime, dropping to around minus ten degrees at night, provide the perfect setting of ice and snow to test the sporty capabilities of the Lamborghini Huracán range and Urus Super SUV.

The challenging driving experience on snow and ice - the ‘black runs’ of Lamborghini’s Accademia program - provides guests with the perfect antidote to the last two years’ lost winter seasons, together with the luxury of being hosted in the best hotels and restaurants in the area.

Lamborghini’s team of Squadra Corsa drivers lead the driving activities and deliver instruction, ensuring each participant maximizes their potential and Lamborghini cars’ capabilities in the winter sports environment. The four-wheel drive and four-wheel steering Huracán EVO and Urus perfectly perform each exercise on the challenging mountain ice track, while the rear-wheel-drive Huracán STO delivers high-octane race-oriented control.

High performance and freezing conditions aren’t new to Lamborghini. Therefore, in Sant’Agata DRIVERS’ LAB, the Lamborghini pilots benefit from sessions using the most advanced training machines supported by a personal trainer.

'Get Noticed': A digital Grooming School from Miss India Organization to power the aspirants personality.


- Bringing the legacy, the tradition, the experience, now making it easily accessible. Seven subjects, Seven celebrity mentors, and one life-changing school — The Grooming School from the House of Miss India

MUMBAI, India, Feb. 18, 2022 — The Miss India Organisation has decided to leverage its vast experience and expertise in transforming women into confident, booming winners in life by launching The Grooming School. It is a suite of ‘Do-It-Yourself’ video tutorials conducted by acknowledged and acclaimed experts who have been behind many successful Miss India winners and aims to bring this knowledge to the larger Indian audience and not just pageant participants.

The Grooming School is aimed at young women who would like to sharpen their personality and technical skills to stand out from the crowd and succeed. These modules aim to touch all the elements of one’s personality that help build confidence and appeal. The world is moving more and more into a networked society, and the need to hold their own with a strong personality is becoming imperative.

The Grooming Masterclass six modules include Skincare, Hair Care & Styling, Make-up, Personality Development, Fashion Styling, and Social Media Etiquettes and involve self-paced learning.

In addition to the modules for the larger audience, The Miss India Organisation is also launching the ‘Ace Your Pageant - A Miss India Masterclass’ as a marquee offering specifically for pageant aspirants who wish to participate in Miss India or Miss Diva. This course elevates learning to prepare one for a pageant. It is for those who want to compete for the coveted crown by acing their poise, presence, communication, beauty, body language, body structure, attitude, and discipline. The additional modules focus on ramp walking, fitness, and other expert sessions and hacks on personality development and life skills.

In an age where women are increasingly seeking to be independent and take control of their lives, they need to possess self-esteem, be confident and poised, be well-versed in social etiquette and self-grooming. While many urban educated women mind their ‘P’s and ‘Q’s and keep abreast of other social norms, there are a whole lot of Indian women who haven’t had that kind of an early grounding. While it doesn’t dampen their dreams or aspirations, easy and affordable access to contemporary lessons in physical, emotional, and social grooming will go a long way in helping them realize their dreams.

The Miss India Organisation, over the past six decades, has been the most robust platform for young women to empower themselves and realize their life dreams. It has witnessed Indian women struggling to break out of a male-dominated society and make space for themselves. Many winners over the years have used this platform to create positive change towards women’s empowerment and the community at large. The Miss India Organisation has been a pioneer in triggering this evolution.

It is the ideal starter program for all pageant aspirants. Earning a certificate in the ‘Ace your Pageant’ course gives the candidate an immense benefit of ‘Cutting the Queue’ if applying for these two pageants. As thousands of applicants get screened for auditions, many don’t even get a chance to present themselves and make a pitch. But with this certificate, they will be able to enter the auditions without going through the screening process and get a chance to present themselves to the talent-spotting team of Miss India Organisation.

Eight renowned fashion, beauty, fitness, personality development, and social media experts from the industry have meticulously prepared these tutorials, sharing secrets, tricks, and hacks they’ve acquired during their years in the trade. They include Savio John Pereira (Haircare), Alesia Raut (Ramp Walk), Sanjeev Dutta (Personality Development), Nehal Chudasama (Fitness), Nitibha Kaul (Social Media Etiquette), Bharat Gupta (Fashion & Styling), Zara Dadi (Skincare), and Ayesha Seth (Makeup).

The program is open to applicants from all walks of life above 16 years of age who ardently wish to uncover their true potential and achieve big things in life. The Grooming School - from the House of Miss India has a special early bird offer with a discount of over 25 percent for all enrolments during the inaugural year. In addition, the applicants will receive certificates from ‘The Miss India Organisation’ on completing the course.

Miss India Organisation, a household name and a powerful aspirational brand, has reigned for decades with its legacy of creating icons for the social, glamour, and fashion industry. In addition, the organization is host to the country’s most coveted and sensational beauty pageants, namely, Miss India, Miss Diva, and Mr. India.

Miss India Organisation’s global Hall of Fame features the likes of Rita Faria, Zeenat Aman, Juhi Chawla, Sushmita Sen, Aishwarya Rai, Diana Hayden, Yukta Mookhey, Gul Panag, Priyanka Chopra, Lara Dutta, Dia Mirza, Celine Jaitley, Neha Dhupia, Parvathy Omnakuttan, Pooja Chopra, Nicole Faria, Srishti Rana, Asha Bhat, Ruhi Singh, Urvashi Rautela, Vartika Singh, Srinidhi Shetty, Lopamudra Raut, Manushi Chhillar, Meenakshi Chaudhary, Suman Rao, Adline Castelino, and Harnaaz Sandhu.

Sony Set the Stage

TOKYO, February 9, 2022 — Sony Group Corporation has announced a new brand campaign, “Set The Stage,” — an opportunity for music fans to help co-create content with some of their favorite Sony Music Entertainment artists. The artists include The Kid LAROI, the Australian artist behind the chart-toppers “Stay” and “Without You,” multi-platinum-certified, Boston-born artist BIA (“Whole Lotta Money”) and Canadian singer/ songwriter /dancer Tate McRae (“you broke me first”).

Streaming live from a studio in Los Angeles, Tate McRae will begin a string of live performance videos on February 24 with a live set featuring her new single “she’s all I wanna be,” released on February 4. BIA will follow with a performance video on March 3, with “Set The Stage” culminating in an upcoming grand finale performance from The Kid LAROI*.

To bring fans even closer to the Sony Music artists they love, The Kid LAROI, Tate McRae, and BIA will each invite their followers to participate in the “Set The Stage” challenge. Fans in the United States will submit artwork of the artist’s song lyrics that will then be turned into dynamic, visual works that the artists will perform within during their “Set The Stage” live video performance.

“I’m beyond excited to partner with Sony and bring my fans in on the fun,” said Sony Music Artist The Kid LAROI. “My fans have quite literally changed my life, and I want to connect with them in new ways. With my first global tour coming up, I wanted to take this opportunity to share this experience with my fans, putting their voices at the center of my work.”

“Providing fans with a deeper connection to their favorite artists and their music through technology is the cornerstone of Set The Stage,” said Shiro Kambe, Senior Executive Vice President, Corporate Executive Officer of Sony Group Corporation. “We are creating exciting new content by pairing talented artists and innovative technology to deliver an experience that only Sony can provide.”

On Thursday, February 24, the action kicks off when viewers can tune in to watch Tate McRae’s live “Set The Stage” performance on Sony’s global YouTube channel.
