New Delhi, April 11, 2019 — Faster, more powerful and more efficient than ever before, the eighth generation of the Porsche 911 has arrived in India. Revealed on track at the Buddh International Circuit, Noida, near New Delhi, the 911 Carrera S highlighted the design and performance evolution of the brand’s most iconic sports car. The rear-engine model range has been redesigned and now showcases a more muscular look that pays tribute to its past, while also embracing the future with technology woven into its DNA.

Speaking during the launch event at the FIA certified track, Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, said: “Just like the first generation, the latest 911 is a sports car for the new era. Our icon has once again evolved and is now more powerful, more emotional, and more efficient than its predecessors. It is the best 911 Porsche has ever produced and to prove that point we have brought the range to the Buddh International Circuit for a performance showcase. The eighth generation maintains the 911’s status as a pure driver’s car that also offers everyday usability and unique design. As such, I am delighted to announce that the 911 Carrera S and the 911 Carrera S Cabriolet are now available in India for booking.”

New Delhi, March 20, 2019 — Organised by Porsche India, Narain Karthikeyan set a new lap record for street-legal cars at the Buddh International Circuit in Noida, a suburban city of Delhi. India’s first ever F1 driver beat his own fastest lap time when he claimed the honor in a 911 GT3 on the track last year November. Yesterday, Narain went even faster in a Porsche 911 GT2 RS, taking the racer just 2 minutes 00.266 seconds to complete the 5.14km of India’s only FIA certified track.

This new record lap time beat Narian’s previous best of 2 minutes 07.629 seconds by 7.363 seconds. The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India (FMSCI), a long-standing member of the FIA, has certified the time.

Discussing Narain’s achievement, Pavan Shetty, Director at Porsche India, said: “This record establishes Porsche as the fastest automobile brand in India. In a matter of months, Porsche 911s have now broken the lap record twice at the Buddh International Circuit. With its incredible 700 hp and maximum torque of 750 Nm from 2,500 rpm to 4,500 rpm, the 911 GT2 RS has underlined again that it is the fastest 911 on the market. I want to take this opportunity to congratulate Narain on a job well done as this was a true showcase of Porsche’s ability to manufacture highly moving sports cars that are at home on the race track.”

The 3.8-liter bi-turbo flat engine can catapult the two-seater vehicle - which weighs 1,470 kilograms - from zero to 100 km/h in 2.8 seconds under optimal circumstances. While setting the record, Narain took advantage of the Porsche Doppelkupplung (PDK), an innovation from motorsport featured in the 911 GT2 RS for the first time. The high-performance engine transmits its power via an automatically switching seven-speed gearbox on the rear axle, without interrupting traction. Cornering speeds were also on a par with those achieved by super sports cars. The 911 GT2 RS conquered the 16 turns of the Hermann Tilke designed track using its flawless racing chassis.

The 911 GT2 RS is a concentration of Porsche’s motorsport expertise in one high-performance sports car that offers superior dynamics on the racetrack while being a versatile road car like any other Porsche model.

Paris, February 11, 2019 — On the occasion of the International Day of Women and Girls in Science celebrated on 11 February, the L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO have announced the laureates of the 21st International Awards For Women in Science, which honors outstanding women scientists, from all over the world. These exceptional women are recognized for the excellence of their research in the fields of material science, mathematics and computer science.

Each laureate receives €100,000, and their achievements will be celebrated alongside those of 15 promising young women scientists from around the world at an awards ceremony on 14 March at UNESCO’s Headquarters in Paris.

EXTENDING THE AWARD TO MATHEMATICS AND COMPUTER SCIENCE

Mathematics is a prestigious discipline and a source of innovation in many domains. However, it is also one of the scientific fields with the lowest representation of women at the highest level. Since the establishment of the three most prestigious international prizes for the discipline (Fields, Wolf, and Abel), only one woman mathematician has been recognized, out of a total of 141 laureates.

The L’Oréal Foundation and UNESCO have therefore decided to reinforce their efforts to empower women in science by extending the International Awards dedicated to material science to two more research areas: mathematics and computer science.

Two mathematicians now figure among the five laureates receiving 2019 For Women in Science Awards. Claire Voisin, one of five women to have won a gold medal from the French National Centre for Scientific Research (CNRS), and the first women mathematician to enter the prestigious Collège de France; and Ingrid Daubechies of Duke University (USA), the first woman researcher to head the International Mathematical Union.

Since 1998, the L’Oréal Foundation, in partnership with UNESCO, has worked to improve the representation of women in scientific careers, upholding the conviction that the world needs science, and science needs women.

Sound On: Mastercard Debuts Sonic Brand

Mastercard Melody to come to life at Mastercard Sensory Lab during GRAMMY Week and in new U.S. ad with Camila Cabello.

Mastercard Sound

Purchase, NY - February 8, 2019 - Setting a new tempo for brand expression, Mastercard debuts its sonic brand identity, a comprehensive sound architecture that signifies the latest advancement for the brand. Wherever consumers engage with Mastercard across the globe - be it physical, digital or voice environments - the distinct and memorable Mastercard melody will provide simple, seamless familiarity. The news comes on the heels of the company’s recent transition to a symbol brand and is part of its continued brand transformation.

“Sound adds a powerful new dimension to our brand identity and a critical component to how people recognize Mastercard today and in the future,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing, and communications officer, Mastercard. “We set out an ambitious goal to produce the Mastercard melody in a way that’s distinct and authentic, yet adaptable globally and across genres. It is important that our sonic brand not only reinforces our presence but also resonates seamlessly around the world.”

Global Resonance, Local Relevance

To ensure the Mastercard melody would resonate with people the world over, Mastercard tapped musicians, artists, and agencies from across the globe, including musical innovator Mike Shinoda of Linkin Park.

The result, a distinct and memorable melody with adaptations across genres and cultures, making it locally relevant while maintaining a consistent global brand voice. Also, the use of varying instruments and tempos help to deliver the Mastercard melody in several unique styles such as operatic, cinematic and playful as well as many regional interpretations.

The Mastercard melody is the foundation of the company’s sound architecture and will extend to many assets, from musical scores, audio logos, and ringtones, to hold music and point-of-sale acceptance sounds.

“What I love most about the Mastercard melody, is just how flexible and adaptable it is across genres and cultures,” said Mike Shinoda. “It’s great to see a big brand expressing themselves through music to strengthen their connection with people.”

A Digital Brand for a Digital Consumer

With voice shopping set to hit $40 billion by 2022, audio identities not only connect brands with consumers on a new dimension, but they are also tools enabling consumers to shop, live, and pay in an increasingly digital and mobile world.

“Audio makes people feel things, and that’s what makes it such a powerful medium for brands, said Matt Lieber, Cofounder, and President, Gimlet. “With the explosion of podcasts, music streaming, and smart speakers, an audio strategy is no longer a “nice-to-have” for brands - it’s a necessity. A sonic identity — the audio calling card for a brand — is now just as important as a brand’s visual identity.”

Melody comes to life during GRAMMY Week.

In the lead up to the 61st GRAMMY Awards, Mastercard will launch a new multi-channel marketing program starring GRAMMY-nominated artist Camila Cabello, which will be the first creative output to feature the brand’s sound logo.

“I am so excited to be partnering with Mastercard and being able to offer new opportunities to fans,” said Cabello.

Following the U.S. introduction, the Mastercard sound will head to The BRIT Awards in London and then Mobile World Congress in Barcelona. Mastercard would announce additional activations and sonic integrations around the world in the coming months.

Maranello, Italy, February 6, 2019 - The Ferrari Monza SP2 has been named the Most Beautiful Supercar of 2018 by a panel of expert judges at the 34th Paris Festival Automobile International.

The prestigious award was presented at a ceremony at the city’s Hotel National des Invalides attended by over 600 guests, including many leading exponents of the automotive and journalism worlds.

The Ferrari Monza SP2, together with the Ferrari Monza SP1, is the forerunner of the new Icona concept inspired by the most evocative Ferrari competition cars of the 1950s. The Monza SP2 is the Prancing Horse’s modern reinterpretation of a timeless style paired with technologically advanced components and the highest performance possible, thanks to the marque’s continuous research and innovation.

“The Ferrari Style Centre’s designers crafted a design so pure and forms so elegantly minimalist that they could be described as a single pencil stroke. The extreme styling of the more recent Ferrari track cars has been bypassed in favor of clean, spare lines. Never before has a car possessed such clear narrative power: this is a model born to deliver pure driving pleasure and fun behind the wheel. An experience that creates a symbiotic connection between man and car,” the company said.

Switzerland Maintains Top Spot Overall, Japan Captures Second Place in 2019 Best Countries Report

(File Photo)

WASHINGTON, January 29, 2019 — Switzerland is the No. 1 country in the world for the third consecutive year, according to the 2019 Best Countries Report, a rankings and analysis project by U.S. News & World Report, BAV Group and the Wharton School of the University of Pennsylvania. The rankings evaluate 80 countries across a range of categories, from economic influence and military might to education and quality of life, to capture how the public perceives the nations on a global scale.

For the first time, respondents were asked to pick the countries they would prefer to buy goods from as a measure of a country’s brand power. Germany comes out on top with consumers wanting cars, healthcare, and pharmaceuticals from the nation. France is No. 1 for cosmetics and fashion, Italy is No. 1 in food and wine, and Japan is first for technology and electronics. At No. 8 on the overall Best Countries list, the U.S. has some catching up to do, ranking No. 7 in wine, No. 10 in healthcare and No. 11 in food.

“The Best Countries rankings draw on U.S. News’ expertise and global authority in measuring complex institutions, such as colleges and hospitals,” said Eric Gertler, executive chairman at U.S. News. “The report arms citizens, thought leaders, business executives, and government officials with the data to evaluate the global standings of their nations and leadership.”

Key Findings in the 2019 Best Countries Report:

Tumultuous news cycles have made an impact on global opinions regarding media and world safety. Sixty-three percent of people agree that there are no more objective news sources, and 66 percent say internet news and content is dividing us rather than uniting us. Additionally, more than 50 percent agree the world has worsened in the last year.

With data privacy scandals at the forefront of people’s minds, 77 percent of respondents agree that their internet privacy is at risk. However, slightly more than half of the respondents trust private companies to keep their data safe, and 58 percent generally trust private companies more than the government.

More than 80 percent of those surveyed agree that CEOs and business leaders need to be vocal about their views on societal issues.

Japan rises to the No. 2 spot overall as the world anticipates the 2020 Summer Olympics in Tokyo. The country is perceived as the most forward-looking, and for the first time, ranks as No. 1 for entrepreneurship. The rest of the top five finds Switzerland - viewed as an innovative country - at No. 1 again, with Canada, Germany, and the U.K. following Japan, respectively.

For the second year in a row, the U.S. ranks at No. 8 overall. However, the world’s level of trust in the U.S. continues to decline with the nation now at No. 27 for perceptions of trustworthiness. Perceptions of the U.S. as a country that cares about human rights have also fallen. While these might be signs that President Donald Trump’s strategy on the world stage may not be working, the U.S. is still perceived as No. 1 in power, followed closely by Russia at No. 2.

Nordic countries maintain their strong standing in the overall ranking, with Sweden and Norway both in the top 10 overall. At No. 6 overall, Sweden is the best country for women, to raise children and for green-living. Norway moves up to No. 9 overall, seeing increases in the up-and-coming category and remains No. 1 in citizenship. Belgium makes its rankings debut at No. 17 overall, behind China and ahead of Italy, due to high marks for citizenship at No. 10 and quality of life at No. 11.

Assessing perceptions of countries from North America to Europe to the Middle East, the report finds the U.K. is No. 1 for education, and Canada has the best quality of life. Luxembourg leads in the most business-friendly nations, the United Arab Emirates is No. 1 for countries with up-and-coming economies, and Switzerland is the top to headquarter a corporation.

“This report can help brands understand the potential power they have in connecting to their home nations, and help guide in managing their branding,” said Michael Sussman, CEO of BAV Group.

The 2019 Best Countries ranking methodology relies on data gathered from a proprietary survey of more than 20,000 business leaders, informed elites and general citizens. “The report speaks to the value of having a strong global standing as nations compete for investment, tourists and influence in the same way companies compete for consumers’ dollars,” said David Reibstein, professor of marketing at the Wharton School.

Mastercard and The Rockefeller Foundation Announce ‘Data Science for Social Impact’

Mastercard, Rockefeller Foundation

DAVOS, Switzerland, January 22, 2019 — The Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth and The Rockefeller Foundation today announced Data Science for Social Impact. This transformational model for collaborative philanthropy will accelerate the use of data science by empowering non-profit, civic and government organizations with the tools, expertise and other capabilities they need to help solve the world’s most pressing challenges.

The collaborative was announced at the World Economic Forum’s Annual Meeting in Davos, Switzerland, with an initial commitment of $50 million from The Rockefeller Foundation and the Mastercard Impact Fund over five years and an invitation to other companies and philanthropies to join.

More than 2.5 quintillion bytes of data are produced every day. This abundance of data, combined with rapidly advancing analytics capabilities, has the potential to improve the lives of billions of people around the world. While businesses have been building and deploying data science capabilities for many years, those on the front lines of social good often lack the resources to do the same. However, governments and non-profits are actively looking for new ways to advance their efforts through applied data to allow, for example, improved access to public transport for underserved communities or the acceleration of disease diagnoses.

Building on The Rockefeller Foundation’s leadership in social impact and the Mastercard Center for Inclusive Growth’s guidance on data philanthropy and governance, the collaborative will identify key priorities and investment opportunities to accelerate data for good, whether that be through research, skill-building or the development of new technology platforms. By growing the data science capabilities of non-profit, civic and government organizations, the collaborative can help local leaders uncover new insights and trends from their data and build more impactful programs for the communities they serve.

“At Mastercard, we believe the digital economy needs to work for everyone. If we can close the gap by providing the non-profit, civic and government sectors with the tools, talent, and investments they need to apply data science effectively, then we have a shot at solving some of the greatest challenges of our time,” said Michael Froman, vice chairman and president, strategic growth at Mastercard. “We see a world where the promise of technological innovation can deliver on our goal of inclusive growth.”

“Like the introduction of science to medicine 100 years ago transformed the delivery of health worldwide, we are poised to take the next big leap bringing data science to social impact,” said Dr. Rajiv J. Shah, president of The Rockefeller Foundation. “We’re excited to invite partners from the public and private sectors to join Data Science for Social Impact and help us inspire a new generation of social sector leaders to use data for good.”

The collaborative’s first activity is $20 million in funding to DataKind, a global nonprofit that harnesses the power of data science and AI in the service of humanity that has completed over 250 projects by deploying expert data science volunteers from their network of over 30,000 across five worldwide chapters since its founding in 2011. This support from the collaborative will allow DataKind to transition from a project to a platform-based model, thereby, supporting more organizations on a set of common issues, including community health and inclusive growth.

Mastercard Evolves Its Brand Mark by Dropping its Name

Las Vegas - January 8, 2019 - Mastercard today announced that it is dropping its name from its iconic brand mark in select contexts. The interlocking red and yellow circles referred to as the Mastercard Symbol, will now stand on its own across cards using the red and yellow brand mark, acceptance marks at retail locations both in the physical and digital worlds, and significant sponsorship properties. “As the consumer and commerce landscape continues to evolve, the Mastercard Symbol represents Mastercard better than one word ever could, and the flexible modern design will allow it to work seamlessly across the digital landscape,” the company said.

“Reinvention in the digital age calls for modern simplicity,” said Raja Rajamannar, chief marketing and communication officer at Mastercard. “And with more than 80 percent of people spontaneously recognizing the Mastercard Symbol without the word ‘MasterCard,’ we felt ready to take this next step in our brand evolution. We are proud of our rich brand heritage and are excited to see the iconic circles standing on their own.”

According to Mastercard, the red and yellow interlocking circles have been the hallmark of the Mastercard brand for more than 50 years, symbolizing the brand’s promise to connect people to Priceless possibilities. The instantaneously recognizable circles are a powerful symbol that brings people closer to their passions and gives them the confidence and trust that their transactions are secure, the company stated.

“We live in a time where, increasingly, we communicate not through words but icons and symbols. Mastercard has had the great fortune of being represented by two interlocking circles, one red, one yellow, since its founding in 1966, said Michael Bierut, a partner at Pentagram. “Now, by allowing this symbol to shine on its own, Mastercard enters an elite cadre of brands that are represented not by name, but by a symbol: an apple, a target, a swoosh. Mastercard’s two interlocking circles have always expressed their commitment to connecting people. Now, that commitment is given greater presence by Mastercard’s status as a symbol brand.”

Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz is the watch that every young man dreams of wearing on his wrist: a piece that is passed on from generation to generation. Inspired by the 1950s collection, the Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz symbolises a smooth combination of sentimental classicism and youthful passion which is expressed in its design: a nostalgic dial with a modern twist, the Tissot logo in the original font, delicate facetted hour markers, the essential date counter at 3 o’clock and - a new feature - a quartz movement.

The 1950s heralded the Tissot Heritage Visodate with its avant-garde design: a streamlined dial; crisp, angular lines; finesse in wear; an original style; and the essential date function at 3 o’clock. The Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz takes inspiration from its predecessor while adding elegant touches from its own time.

In the company’s opinion, “The Tissot Heritage Visodate Quartz has that surprising spirit, a blend of retro and modernity, that makes ordinary life extraordinary, and reminds you that you can always, somewhere, discover a new experience and write a new chapter.”

Maranello, Italy, December 6, 2018 - The latest Ferrari one-off project, the SP3JC, has been officially consigned to its owner. Designed by the Ferrari Styling Centre, the SP3JC was commissioned by a Ferrari client and collector whose brief set out to create a pure, uncompromising roadster using the chassis and running gear of the F12tdf.

The single one-off car, the SP3JC, is the maximum expression of open-air motoring, harking back to Ferrari’s epic V12-engined spiders of the 1950s and ‘60s. The striking one-off makes an essential and individual styling statement and represents the outcome of over two years of intense work, with close involvement from the client throughout the process.

The SP3JC features a very muscular stance with dynamic sculpturing on the flanks designed to emphasize the front-engine layout, a distinctive air intake outline at the front, and a dramatic rear fascia with horizontal slashes contributing to a broader stance.

The company has reflected the client’s passion for Pop Art in the sharp graphics. The unique combination of the Azzurro Met and Giallo Modena livery over the central Bianco Italia color scheme underlines the car’s sensual volumes.

The sporting theme is reinforced by specific detailing such as split glass inserts on the bonnet to show off the 780cv V12 engine, a flying bridge between the fairings of the carbon-fiber roll hoops and a brushed aluminum external fuel filler cap.

The seats are of blue leather with a white insert. The blue leather extends to the lower dashboard, and the color is picked up in the contrasting stitching to the rest of the interior trim.

Mumbai, November 21, 2018 — The 911 GT3, Porsche’s road-approved sports car, has set a new lap record of 2 minutes 7.6 seconds at the Buddh International Circuit, Greater Noida, Uttar Pradesh — India’s only FIA-certified circuit. India’s first Formula 1 driver, Narain Karthikeyan, got behind the wheel of the Porsche 911 GT3 to beat the previous track record for road-approved street-legal production cars by 2.2 seconds.

The Federation of Motor Sports Clubs of India has officially certified the record, Porsche India announced.

After his successful lap record attempt in the Porsche 911 GT3, Narain Karthikeyan said: “I have been lucky enough to have driven some of the world’s most powerful cars on tracks around the world, and I can truly say that driving the Porsche 911 GT3 today was one of the most exhilarating drives I have had the pleasure of experiencing. To set a record on home soil here at the Buddh International Circuit is very special to me, and I am honored to have made history here with Porsche today.”

Pavan Shetty, Director of Porsche India, added: “Across its 50-year history, the 911 has enjoyed a long and fruitful relationship with the record books and we’re proud to see that tradition continue in India today. The lap record set here by the 911 GT3 is another example of the concentration of Porsche’s motorsport expertise into a high-performance sports car that also masters everyday driving. Offering an unfiltered driving experience and bridging the gap between the track and the road, it is a real highlight of the iconic 911 range which continues to win the hearts and minds of our customers in India.”
