To inaugurate the school in Anantapur, India, executives from Mary Kay Spain, Mary Kay Independent Beauty Consultants, and representatives from the Vicente Ferrer Foundation joined together for a special presentation. Mary Kay Spain also donated new, pink bicycles – Mary Kay’s signature color – for the children to travel from their homes to the school.

“At Mary Kay Spain, we wanted to go beyond our borders to contribute to improved access to education in southern India and it’s enormously satisfying to see how we, as a company, can have a positive impact on people’s lives,” said Gema Aznar, General Manager of Mary Kay Spain. “Mary Kay’s Pink Changing Lives SM initiative is a global commitment to create a better world and this project has allowed us to witness first-hand the power of transforming lives. We are honored to partner with the Vicente Ferrer Foundation and come together at the inauguration of the children’s school in Anantapur.”

The mission of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation (VFF) is to eradicate extreme poverty and suffering in India while empowering people to build up their communities. Through sustainable programs that improve education, community health and the environment, the VFF is passionate about creating a lasting impact that permanently empowers rural communities in India.

“With perseverance, conviction, hard work and the support of companies like Mary Kay, we have made it possible for the sons and daughters of Anantapur’s impoverished families to have access to the most powerful tool available to change the world – education,” said Anna Ferrer, President of the Vicente Ferrer Foundation. “There are many challenges still ahead but with the support and solidarity of people like those who make up Mary Kay Spain, nothing is impossible.”

HD-PLC Innovates IoT World21.1.2020 01:00:00 CETPress release

In Japan, the High-definition Power Line Communication (HD-PLC) technology has been mostly used in PLC adapters and communication equipment so far. One major reason was the interpretation of the “Ministerial Order to Provide Technical Standards for Electrical Appliances and Materials” which applied to the integration of HD-PLC into home electric appliances and housing equipment. Recently, the efforts of the involved parties have been rewarded by the Notice issued on December 25, 2019 by the Ministry of Economy, Trade and Industry (METI) that partially revised the interpretation of the Ministerial Order. HD-PLC can now be integrated in home appliances and housing equipment. The main advantages of HD-PLC over wireless technologies include an easy setup of communication networks, a high level of security, and low power consumption. Additionally, HD-PLC can be used on power lines, coaxial cables, telephone lines, and other existing lines which not only enables the deployment of networks in
