Xinhua Silk Road: China Price-Xinhua Coking Coal Price Index optimized to better reflect market performance

BEIJING, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The work of revising and optimizing China Price-Xinhua Coking Coal Price Index, which was jointly compiled by the Price Monitoring Center of the National Development and Reform Commission and China Economic Information Service (CEIS), has been successfully accomplished recently. The optimization of the index is aimed at increasing the scientificity, accuracy, and sensitivity of the index and providing a more accurate price signal reference for the market, enterprises, and government departments. This optimization is based on the enrichment and improvement of data sources, which are mainly derived from the contract data of the "Coking Coal Online" e-commerce platform of Shanxi Coking Coal & Coke International Trading Center. As a national-level coking coal price index, the newly revised index, on the one hand, can reflect medium- and long-term contracts, promoting the stabilization of the coking coal market. On the other hand, the modified index can sensitively reflect market rapid fluctuations, playing a price signal role for the market. During the trial run, the optimized index can effectively reflect market information in a more timely and accurate manner, as its fluctuations remained basically consistent with market price trends, and the bidding index responded to market price changes slightly earlier than its counterparts during certain periods. The optimization mainly involves updating the index weight and adjusting the sample composition, redesigning the bidding index to make it more suitable for market needs, further enriching the index product system as well as adjusting the release time on Friday instead of Wednesday.

These displays adopt Glue-on-Board (GOB) technology, enhancing screen durability against environmental hazards. This series is poised to transform visual communication with its blend of superior image clarity, collaborative features, and an ultra-slim, bezel-free design, ensuring seamless integration into diverse settings. The 2nd generation LDM series builds upon the existing series, enhancing reliability, flexibility, and performance. "ViewSonic is expanding its All-in-One LED display lineup with continuous innovation, offering a more versatile and comprehensive range of products to fulfill diverse customers' needs.

"Understanding the significant role large format displays play in commercial and education sectors, we've focused on enhancing both audiovisual and operational aspects to offer solutions that provide ease of adoption and reduced maintenance costs."   Enhanced Durability Meets Sleek Aesthetics Given the wide range of applications for LED displays—from corporate lobbies and school common areas to pre-functional and multi-purpose rooms, often frequented by many people, adopting GOB surface treatment technology to this line significantly enhances durability. This advancement leads to more reliable operation with better protection against collision, dust, and moisture, preserving image quality over time, thereby reducing the long-term cost of ownership and ensuring consistent, optimal visual experience for customers. In addition to its improved reliability, the 2nd generation LDM series boasts a refined aesthetic by reducing its thickness from 35mm to 31mm and bezel width from 10mm to 6mm compared to the predecessor. Moreover, its detachable control box can be easily detached from the display to achieve a remarkable 99% screen-to-body ratio. This feature allows for seamless integration into diverse interior designs, crafting ambient environments that blend effortlessly with the surroundings. The series maintains a focus on the ease of installation and operation; it comes with All-in-One integration and offers full-front maintenance to significantly reduce downtime. Adding to the convenience, the detachable control box can be positioned up to 10 meters away from the display, ensuring easy access to controls even in hard-to-reach installations. Captivating Audiovisual and Efficient Experience Beyond reliability and a slim design, the 2nd generation LDM series offers upgraded audiovisual experiences in various environments. Available sizes in 136-, 163-, and 231-inches, the large displays present high brightness at 600 nits with adjustable 100 levels, increasing the adaptability in various lighting settings. Furthermore, the enhanced contrast ratio of 6,500:1 contributes to more crisp and clear detail, coupled with the dual sets of 30W speakers to offer captivating audiovisual experiences. The addition of Picture-by-Picture (PBP) and Picture-in-Picture (PIP) display modes enhances content display efficiency by allowing multiple sources to be shared simultaneously — ideal for hybrid meetings, seminars held in business conference rooms, or lecture halls, where dynamic and interactive presentations are key to effective collaboration and learning. LED displays play a pivotal role in representing brand messages and images to visitors and the public. ViewSonic endeavors to provide clients with a wide range of high-quality All-in-One LED displays that offer simple installation, intuitive operation, and minimal maintenance, enhancing reliability, adaptability, and user experience across various applications.

View Press Event Video Recording: Part 1: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=UgLeWQKvzhg Part 2: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JaSRLP82ZrM&t=879s View Press Event Photos & Key Arts: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/1u7hqf8gitehGrUw3pVesodgiP-VTLSj5?usp=sharing View Trailers: 60 Seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=KIBQLGxGoL4 20 Seconds: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-ucs0Mxy3I0 TOKYO, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- In a groundbreaking partnership, GagaOOLala, the world's largest LGBTQ+ streaming platform, has teamed up with TV Tokyo to launch "At 25:00, in Akasaka," the first-ever co-produced Boys Love (BL) series. Adapted from a manga that has garnered over 1.2 million sales, this series is a significant milestone in BL cinema and television. The collaboration was celebrated at a press conference on April 15th at TV Tokyo's headquarters, marking a major event in the industry. The press conference featured the eagerly awaited public debut of leading actors Kiita Komagine and Taisuke Niihara, alongside co-stars Takuma Usa and Shoma Nagumo. The event was graced by distinguished guests including Hiroaki Saiki, Head of International Business at TV Tokyo, and Jay Lin, Founder and CEO of GagaOOLala, highlighting the project's global appeal and influence. Hiroaki Saiki shared insights into the collaboration, stating, "Since 2022, we have fostered a robust relationship with Portico Media. For 'At 25:00, in Akasaka,' we have utilized their insights from the earliest planning stages, making strategic adjustments to enhance the series' accessibility for international audiences, especially in Taiwan, where GagaOOLala is based." He added, "With digital platforms, content can now quickly reach a global audience. GagaOOLala's extensive worldwide reach is a testament to its influence, and we are eager to partner with GagaOOLala to deliver high-quality content to fans around the globe." Jay Lin commented on the significance of Japanese BL dramas, observing their soaring popularity and the substantial 66% increase in new BL series from 2021 to 2022. "The strength of Japanese BL dramas lies in the robust BL economy here, generating over $1.7 billion annually—a testament to the collaborative efforts among manga publishers, streaming platforms, and TV networks," said Lin. He further emphasized the three major advantages of the Japan-Taiwan collaboration: high economic value, superior production quality, and diverse thematic content. Lin highlighted how the partnership positively influences surrounding Asian countries and praised the intriguing premise of "At 25:00, in Akasaka," which could captivate a broad audience beyond traditional BL fans. With the 30th Anniversary of Tokyo Pride and anticipated advancements in LGBTQ+ rights in Asia, there is a promising horizon for further acceptance and celebration of queer stories. "The captivating element of 'At 25:00, in Akasaka' lies in its exploration of what happens if the BL characters truly harbored romantic feelings for each other," Lin explained. "Would the fans mind? Would they even notice? Should the actors keep their relationship a secret, or might it endear them even more to their fans? This theme is incredibly fascinating as the core of BL is the fantasy of male-male romance, which has indeed catapulted many idols to mainstream fame." Kiita Komagine and Taisuke Niihara shared the unique challenges they faced during the production. Due to the series' meta-structure, a "play within a play," the actors were required to memorize two sets of scripts, presenting a formidable challenge. They also noted that filming kiss scenes was particularly memorable. To bring authenticity and charm to these moments, they consulted intimacy coordinators and sought advice on the most appealing angles for on-screen kisses, experimenting with various chin positions to capture the dreamy essence of the manga's style, all aimed at delivering the most romantic and thrilling experiences to their fans. The plot follows Yuki Shirasaki (Taisuke Niihara), a rookie actor who seizes his chance during an audition and lands a role opposite the popular senior actor, Asami Hayama (Kiita Komagine), in a BL drama. As Shirasaki grapples with the pressure of his first major role, Hayama proposes that they enter into a "relationship for the sake of their roles" until filming concludes. This pseudo-romantic involvement off-screen leads to a poignant and beautifully crafted love story that delves into the complexities of relationships within the entertainment industry. GagaOOLala will begin exclusive global streaming, with the exception of Japan, starting April 18, 2024, at 11:30 PM GMT+8. New episodes will be released weekly on Thursdays. Fact Sheet Title: At 25:00, in Akasaka Synopsis: When Shirosaki, an underdog stage actor gets cast in a gay drama series, he is surprised to learn that he will be working with Hayama, his charming clubmate from university who is now a popular actor. During production, Shirosaki realizes that he will need some inspiration and goes to find some where the local gay people hang out. What he didn't expect was to meet Hayama there, which eventually leads to a drunken kiss. He soon finds himself confused and conflicted about his feelings as he struggles to keep his emotions contained on-screen… Category: Gay, Romance, Japan Season/Episode: First Season, 10 episodes in total Time Length: 30 minutes / per episode GagaOOLala Global Premiere: April 18, 2024 Languages in: Japanese Subtitles in: Traditional & Simplified Chinese/English/Bahasa Indonesia/Spanish/Thai Production Company: TV Tokyo, The icon Producers: Satoshi Egawa (TV Tokyo), Takaya Chiba (TV Tokyo), Ayano Kimura (The icon), Miyako Furubayashi (The icon) Copyright: © "25 o'clock, in Akasaka" Production Committee Social Media: GagaOOLala TV Tokyo Instagram @ gagaoolala.official @25ji_akasakade Facebook @ Gagaoolala N/A TikTok @ gagaoolala.official N/A X/Twitter @ GagaOOLala @25ji_akasakade Offical Hashtag: #25時赤坂で YouTube @ GagaOOLalaOfficial Official Website https://www.tv-tokyo.co.jp/25jiakasakade/ Press Contact: GagaOOLala/Portico Media TV Tokyo Global Public Relations and Brand Lead Sherry Liu sherry@porticomedia.com TV Tokyo Promotion Department Natsuki Hamada n-hamada@staff.tv-tokyo.co.jp Tomo Watanabe    watanabe777@staff.tv-tokyo.co.jp

The 2024 DePIN Report forecasts a $3.5 trillion market size by 2028

DePIN is forming a new sharing economy model in digital economy eraHONG KONG SAR - Media OutReach Newswire - 16 April 2024 - In April 2024, during the Web3 Festival in Hong Kong, UWEB and JDI Global officially released the highly anticipated "2024 DePIN Development Report." The report, authored by UWEB Principal Dr. Yu Jianing, JDI Global CEO Wang Yiming, and UWEB Co-founder Romeo Wang, provides an in-depth discussion on the innovative network architecture of DePIN and its significant impact on the digital economy. DePIN, the Distributed Physical Infrastructure Network, integrates blockchain technology with physical infrastructure, aiming to combine various resources from the physical world, such as storage space, computing power, and network connections, with the digital realm through a decentralized approach. This synergy propels innovation and development in the digital economy. The report forecasts a promising future for DePIN, with a market size expected to reach $3.5 trillion by 2028. As a crucial player in global infrastructure network development, DePIN combines physical infrastructure with blockchain technology, promoting the construction of the network through token incentive mechanisms and driving innovation and growth in the digital economy. DePIN's application scenarios are extensive, covering distributed storage, wireless networks, Content Delivery Networks (CDNs), artificial intelligence computing, and more, demonstrating its immense potential in fostering technological innovation and enhancing industry efficiency. DePIN leverages blockchain technology to enable the digital representation and transfer of value. While traditional information internet allows for the free flow and sharing of information, the transfer of value is often restricted by centralized financial institutions and complex regulations. DePIN, with its decentralized nature, permits the global, unrestricted flow of value, significantly reducing transaction costs and time, and enhancing liquidity. Furthermore, DePIN's incentive mechanisms stimulate the enthusiasm of individuals and enterprises to participate. In the DePIN network, participants can provide physical infrastructure resources such as storage space, bandwidth, and computing power to earn corresponding rewards. This not only encourages more individuals and enterprises to join the network construction but also provides a powerful impetus for network expansion and maintenance, forming a new sharing economy model. Additionally, DePIN complements and enhances the traditional internet and IoT (Internet of Things). The core functions of the internet include data storage, transmission, and processing, and DePIN provides a more stable, secure, and efficient environment for these data through its physical infrastructure network. For instance, DePIN supports distributed storage systems like Filecoin and Arweave, wireless network coverage like Helium and MetaBlox, CDN content transmission with Meson and CESS, and emerging AI-combined applications like Render Network and OORT. These applications not only enhance data reliability and availability but also provide robust support for emerging artificial intelligence computing technologies. Despite challenges in technological maturity, standardization, security, privacy protection, and compliance, the report emphasizes that industry collaboration, technical standard setting, and international dialogue can overcome these issues. In conclusion, the report highlights that DePIN is not only a product of technological innovation but also a key factor in driving social progress and sustainable economic development. As the concept and technology of DePIN continue to mature and become more widespread, it is expected to inspire more infrastructure innovation and reform globally, laying a solid foundation for a more interconnected, efficient, and equitable future world.

ISCA launches Accelerated Pathway Programme to fast-track aspiring Chartered Accountants of Singapore

SINGAPORE - Media OutReach Newswire - 16 April 2024 - The Institute of Singapore Chartered Accountants (ISCA) has launched an Accelerated Pathway Programme (APP) for accountancy degree students to become a Chartered Accountant of Singapore [CA (Singapore)] through a fast-track route. The APP will be available for 2 years, starting from April 2024, and eligible students can take the Singapore CA Qualification (SCAQ) professional programme module exams while studying for accountancy programmes at the universities. The APP will be offered to students of the accountancy programmes of the following local Autonomous Universities (AUs): Nanyang Technological University National University of Singapore Singapore Management University Singapore University of Social Sciences Singapore Institute of Technology To be conferred the prestigious CA (Singapore) designation, individuals will need to complete the Singapore CA Qualification (SCAQ), a globally recognised programme that imparts up-to-date technical skills and weaves together cross-disciplinary elements to develop leaders of accountancy with an international outlook. The demand for accountancy talent remains high in Singapore, necessitating a robust supply of chartered accountants to meet business needs. Without proper financial governance processes, financial close procedures, accurate and error-free financial statements, the state of financial reporting for organisations and businesses will be thrown into disarray, with negative implications for Singapore's reputation as a global business centre. In response to the talent shortage, ISCA is ramping up efforts to promote accountancy as an attractive career choice to the younger generation. The APP is one of the schemes which will support those who are keen to pursue accountancy. The APP is designed to encourage and support accountancy students to take the SCAQ examinations during the penultimate and final year of their studies. The professional programme modules which are not available for exemptions will be weaved into their accountancy studies. ISCA will provide support including complimentary revision classes to boost these students' confidence as they undertake the challenge to clear their professional qualification examinations. As an illustration, aspiring chartered accountants who are enrolled in the APP would be fast-tracked upon graduation from their accountancy degree programmes at the local AUs, such that they will only need to complete the final capstone module examination and fulfill the practical experience requirement to attain the CA (Singapore) title. NTU Associate Dean (Undergraduate Education) of Nanyang Business School, Associate Professor Damien Joseph said: "Nanyang Business School is pleased to partner with ISCA on the APP, highlighting our commitment to nurturing highly skilled and industry-ready graduates. The collaboration offers our accountancy undergraduates essential support and resources to pursue the SCAQ, preparing them for successful careers. Its impact will be especially significant for NBS's flagship three-year direct honours Bachelor of Accountancy programme and the new four-year direct honours Bachelor of Accountancy (Sustainability Management and Analytics) programme." Associate Professor Chng Chee Kiong, Vice Dean of Undergraduate Studies at NUS Business School, said: "The APP is an important and useful targeted initiative for our undergraduates who are interested in advancing into accountancy-related careers. We believe that APP, together with the work-study internship arrangements that NUS Accountancy has with her industry partners, will significantly provide our accountancy undergraduates an early head start to their professional and leadership training." Professor Cheng Qiang, Dean, SMU School of Accountancy, said: "The SMU School of Accountancy is committed to preparing our undergraduates with the right skill sets to address the evolving needs of the accounting sector. The APP offered by ISCA is a timely initiative that will encourage more of our undergraduates to pursue the Chartered Accountant of Singapore [CA (Singapore)] qualification – a significant boost to their career progression. We are pleased to partner with ISCA on this initiative and look forward to more collaborations in developing skilled talent for the accounting profession." Associate Professor Ng Kai Teck, Head of Accountancy Programme at SUSS Business School, said: "The SCAQ APP is a great initiative by ISCA to support our student's career development and start them on the path to be a professional accountant. By clearing their professional examinations early, they can better focus on their practical experience after graduation and complete the SCAQ." SIT Cluster Director of Business, Communication and Design Cluster, Associate Professor SzeKee Koh, said: "The Accelerated Pathway Programme by ISCA demonstrates a dedication to supporting local accountancy undergraduates as they strive towards a professional CA qualification. By offering complimentary revision classes, ISCA not only alleviates financial burden but also nurtures a conducive learning environment. This initiative facilitates students' engagement in the SCAQ journey alongside their academic pursuits, facilitating a smooth transition into the workforce equipped with strengthened practical skills and competencies". Alex Koh, Partner, Head of Audit, KPMG in Singapore, said, "The integrity and quality of our accounting graduates are pivotal in maintaining Singapore's status as a trusted global financial hub. The pathway to professional accountancy in Singapore is characterised by its comprehensive and in-depth education, coupled with a rigorous professional accreditation process. This ensures our professionals not only meet but often exceed the high standards our industry demands. At KPMG, we welcome ISCA's initiative to expedite the pathway for accounting undergraduates towards earning the Singapore Chartered Accountant qualification. This is a strategic move in driving quality, scale and speed in nurturing talent for the profession and the wider business ecosystem in this new world." ISCA President, Mr Teo Ser Luck, said: "ISCA is dedicating resources to support the qualification journey of the next generation of CA (Singapore). Through this programme, an accountancy graduate will get a degree and be on a fast track to achieve an internationally recognised professional qualification. This additional recognition will put budding accounting professionals in a position to explore more career options locally and overseas."

2024 Africa Wealth Report: Millionaire Growth of 65% in Next Decade

LONDON, April 16, 2024 /PRNewswire/ -- The total investable wealth currently held on the African continent amounts to USD 2.5 trillion and its millionaire population is set to rise by 65% over the next ten years, according to the 2024 Africa Wealth Report, published by international wealth advisory firm Henley & Partners. Now in its 9th edition, the annual report reveals there are currently 135,200 HNWIs with investable wealth of USD 1 million or more living in Africa, along with 342 centi-millionaires and 21 dollar billionaires. Africa's "Big 5" wealth markets — South Africa, Egypt, Nigeria, Kenya, and Morocco — together account for 56% of the continent's millionaires and over 90% of its billionaires. But, as Dominic Volek, Head of Private Clients at Henley & Partners points out, currency depreciation and underperforming stock markets have chipped away at Africa's wealth compared to global benchmarks: "The South African Rand fell 43% against the US dollar from 2013-2023, and even though the JSE All Share Index rose in local currency terms, it was down 5% in USD terms. Currencies in most other African countries also performed poorly over the past decade, with dramatic depreciations of over 75% recorded in Nigeria, Egypt, Angola and Zambia." Head of Research at New World Wealth Andrew Amoils adds that African nations are also losing large numbers of HNWIs to migration which is eroding the continent's wealth: "Approximately 18,700 high-net-worth individuals have left Africa over the past decade. There are currently 54 African born billionaires in the world, including one of the world's richest, Elon Musk, but only 21 of them still live on the continent." Africa's Wealthiest Countries and Cities  Despite a tough past decade, South Africa is still home to over twice as many HNWIs as any other African country, with 37,400 millionaires, 102 centi-millionaires, and 5 billionaires, followed by Egypt with 15,600 millionaires, 52 centi-millionaires, and 7 billionaires. Nigeria sits in 3rd place with 8,200 HNWIs, followed by Kenya (7,200 millionaires), Morocco (6,800), Mauritius (5,100), Algeria (2,800), Ghana (2,700), Ethiopia (2,700) and Namibia (2,300) all making it into the Top 10 wealthiest countries in Africa. Over the next decade (to 2033), the likes of Mauritius, Namibia, Morocco, Zambia, Kenya, Uganda and Rwanda are all expected to experience 80%+ millionaire growth. Mauritius is projected to enjoy a remarkable 95% growth rate, positioning it as one of the world's fastest-growing wealth markets. At the city level, Johannesburg holds its place as the wealthiest in Africa, with 12,300 millionaires, 25 centi-millionaires, and 2 billionaires. Cape Town follows closely with 7,400 millionaires, 28 centi-millionaires, and 1 billionaire. Cairo (7,200 millionaires), Nairobi (4,400), and Lagos (4,200) also stand out as key African urban wealth hubs. Cape Town, the Whale Coast, Kigali, Windhoek, Swakopmund, Nairobi, Tangier and Marrakech are all expected to enjoy 85%+ millionaire growth over the next ten years. Cape Town also leads the way when it comes to luxury real estate at USD 5,600 per m2, with Grand Baie in Mauritius close behind at USD 5,000 per m2. South Africa has five contenders in the Top 10 Most Expensive African Cities and Morocco has three. Africa's lack of economic mobility Commenting in report, Prof. Mehari Maru, from the Migration Policy Centre at the European University Institute, says African visa applicants face far more severe restrictions compared to other regions: "Africa tops the list of rejections with 30% or one in three of all processed applications being turned down, even though it has the lowest number of visa applications per capita. The rejection rates for Schengen visas are ten times higher than for US-Americans. Despite justifications based on security or economic concerns, the European visa system clearly demonstrates apparent bias against African applicants." Chidinma Okebalama, Senior Consultant at Henley & Partners Nigeria, says: "Your passport serves as a determinant of financial freedom, impacting individuals' abilities to explore international business ventures, network efficiently, or engage in multinational trade opportunities. Consequently, African entrepreneurs and investors are often left out of lucrative global markets, impeding their potential for economic growth and financial prosperity." Read the Full Press Release.
