Social Network App Skout Celebrates National Super Hero Day

Over the past year Skout, an app that helps you expand your social circle, has used their virtual gift application within the platform to help their users donate money to different charities. According to an article in PR NewsWire on National Super Hero Day every time a Skout user sends a superhero themed gift to a friend on the app Skout will donate to the Make-A-Wish foundation. Skout will continue to make donations as their users send free virtual gifts until a wish is fulfilled in the Greater Bay area. On top of the donations they’re sending they also conducted a super hero themed survey and asked their users a variety of questions related to super heroes.

According to their survey America is split on who their favorite super hero is. Batman got the most votes from women and Superman got the most votes from men. However, over half of Skout users voted Batman and Robin as their favorite super hero friend duo while 19% said The Thing and Human Torch where their favorite. 16% said Green Hornet and Kato are the best and The Wonder Twins got 12% of the votes.

Nearly half of the users asked said that the Batmobile would be their super hero car of choice. Wonder Woman’s invisible jet and the X-Men’s Blackbird both got 20% of the vote and 12% said they’d opt for the Green Hornet’s Black Beauty. According to 57% of Skout users having a mask is a necessity for super heroes while only 19% said a cape was the best item to have. 80% of users said they’d love to be a super hero in real life and nearly half of the users taking the survey agreed that selflessness is what makes a hero.

The Make-A-Wish foundation is a widely recognized organization that grants the wish of children with life threatening illnesses. Skout has also partnered with the SF-Marin Food Bank to help feed the hungry by using their virtual gift donations as a leverage to donate money for each free virtual gift sent by users. Skout has become one of the largest global social media platforms since its initial launch in 2007.

Marcio Alaor BMG Recap

The Consumer Electronics Show, an annual event that takes place in January in Las Vegas, revealed the current and future of technology for the next four decades. What’s most current and advanced is there, and as reported by the website CNET, CES 2016 did not change the world, but showed how much change there is in the world. According to executive of Banco BMG Marcio Alaor, the event this year was headlining a drone with room for a passenger, electric cars, and cameras attached to everyday objects that will change the way we interact in our homes.

The Drone Ehanng 184

Drones were the main attraction at CES 2016, but the most acclaimed was the Ehang 184. The drone is designed for a passenger and gives us the belief that flying cars have finally arrived. Because it is a drone, it is not necessary or possible to fly it. Just pre-program the path, sit back, and enjoy the trip. “For now, it has the flight capacity of only 23 minutes,” said Marcio Alaor BMG, “and reaches a maximum height of 3.5 kilometers.” The drone is manufactured by the Chinese corporation Ehang, which continues to work on the invention. “Your biggest concern is security,” said Marcio Alaor, executive of Banco BMG. “Therefore, the Chinese company is working to set up a control center to take control of the drone when needed.” Watch the video made ​​by the company: http://bit.ly/1ITJrj0

Electric cars

Electric cars were also an attraction at the electronics fair and apparently the trend of the current automotive sector. Confirmed by Marcio Alaor of Banco BMG, the company General Motors introduced the Chevrolet Bolt in 2017 in its final version. The car will be available by the end of this year at a starting price of $30,000. See more about the car at the chevrolet.com website. Ford and Volkswagen are also putting stock into electric cars and showed prototypes, confirming the increased number of these vehicles on the market in years ahead. Ford has announced plans to put 13 hybrid cars on the market in 2020, while Volkswagen decided to reinvent its classic Kombi with an electric prototype. Imagine never having to search for a gas station. It may happen.

Smart home

Also new were cameras connected to objects. They are attached to everything. For example, in the refrigerator. “If you’re in the grocery store and don’t remember if you have to buy milk, your refrigerator will send a photo of its interior and the problem will be solved,” says Marcio Alaor, executive of Banco BMG. The Samsung brand refrigerator will cost about $ 5,000.

History

The first CES took place in New York City in 1967. Since then, many devices used by us were presented first hand at the event. Some examples include: the VCR at CES 1970, the Compact Disc Player, presented in 1981, the DVD in 1996, plasma television in 2001, and Blu-Ray DVDs in 2003. The CES 2017 already has a date and will be between January 5-8 next year again in Las Vegas, Nevada.

QNET Provides Opportunities For Women’s Economic Empowerment

We are living in a time where many women around the world are enjoying more opportunities than they ever have before. From women like the educated and beautiful First Lady Michelle Obama to mega pop star Beyonce and the inspiring education activist and Nobel Prize nominee Malala Yousafzai, many women are getting the chance to live their dreams and break down important barriers. One of the exciting things about the progress that women from a wide variety of backgrounds are making is knowing that it will have a huge impact on making things better for women and girls in the future. This will mean that young women will have an even greater ability to dream in the future than they do today. 

The First Lady of the United States Michelle Obama has recognized that in order for girls to grow into women with bright futures they must have access to the opportunity to become educated. Last year the First Lady and President Barack Obama launched a pro-education campaign known as Let Girls Learn. The Let Girls Learn campaign seeks to promote women’s empowerment by ensuring that the educational needs of the estimated 62 million girls who are not enrolled school are met. According to the campaign, education is incredibly vital to the wellbeing of girls around the world. The campaign posits that when girls are not educated they can fall victim to life-altering circumstances such as early marriage and HIV/AIDS. They can also have a much harder time getting access to avenues for economic advancement.

As campaigns like the American First Lady’s Let Girls Learn initiative show, it is vital for girls to have access to educational opportunities. QNET believes that it is not only important for girls to have educational opportunities but that it is crucial for them to have employment opportunities to look forward to when they complete their educations. QNET seeks to be a provider of such employment opportunities by offering women in a large number of countries the chance to own their own businesses. QNET believes that promoting female entrepreneurship is a vital part of promoting women’s empowerment. In an article published on the website Gulf News 24/7, QNET Regional General Manager Khaled Diab cited the fact that nearly three-quarters of the people employed in the direct selling business are women. QNET offers its female employees the chance to become business owners and the chance to sell products that improve the lives of female consumers.
