KeyMe Strengthens its Board of Directors with the Addition of James G. Moorhead

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 giugno 2018

KeyMe, the leading resource for total access and key management that is fundamentally changing the way millions of people make and manage their keys, announced today the appointment of James G. Moorhead to the board of directors. This is the latest in a series of moves KeyMe has made to bolster its leadership as it rapidly scales and builds the most trusted brand in the industry.
“KeyMe is building the first-ever national brand in the key duplication and access services industry,” said Greg Marsh, CEO and founder of KeyMe. “James’ track record of transforming brands like Old Spice into household names is going to be incredibly valuable as we take KeyMe to the next level in this $10B/yr category.”Moorhead currently serves as Chief Operating Officer at Metromile, a start-up focused on a pay-per-mile car insurance model, where he is responsible for overseeing sales, marketing, customer service and claims. He also sits on the board of directors of Cenveo, Inc., a diversified manufacturer of print-related products including envelopes, custom labels, commercial print, and publisher solutions.“KeyMe is reinventing the way people gain access to their homes, vehicles and other property, vastly improving the customer experience and driving significant incremental foot traffic to its retail partners,” said James Moorhead. “This is a win-win, both for the consumer that wants to have a problem immediately solved and for our retail partners who want to drive traffic to locations.”Moorhead was previously at Dish Network, where he served as Chief Marketing Officer. Prior to Dish Network he spent 12 years at Procter and Gamble (P&G) where he led iconic brands including Old Spice, Gillette, Prilosec OTC, and Vicks, as well as ad campaigns that won 14 Cannes Lions, eight Effies, and one Emmy, including two Cannes Grand Prix and the Grand Effie.
Moorhead adds to an already high-caliber board and executive team at KeyMe, including recent hires Jessica Harley, CMO, formerly of Etsy and Gilt Groupe and Jimmy Abbott, CFO, previously at Amazon and Zappos.com.

Terves Advancing High-Strength, Non-Flammable Nanostructured Magnesium Alloy Technology

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 giugno 2018

Terves LLC. (“Terves”) is pleased to announce that it was selected by the U.S. Army and Missile Defense Agency to continue development of novel high-strength, non-flammable, nanostructured magnesium alloys for light-weighting applications. Terves received the Department of Defense (“DoD”) SBIR (Small Business Innovative Research) support to enhance its patent-pending cast and wrought Magnesium alloys derived from its high-temperature, high-strength magnesium alloys currently used in oil and gas applications. These new alloys, with further development, show tremendous potential to save 30% or more in structural weight by replacing cast and wrought 2000, 6000, and 7000 series aluminum alloys in transportation, space, and defense applications.
Replacing steel with aluminum can lead to an ~40% weight savings and using magnesium alloys instead of aluminum can lead to a further weight reduction of ~30%. According to McKinsey’s report titled ‘Lightweight, Heavy Impact’ the use of lightweight materials in just three industries – automotive, aviation, and wind – will increase significantly in volume over the next two decades, creating a market impact of more than $400 billion.“The very high strength, ductility, and mechanical durability at elevated temperatures of these nanostructured low-density magnesium alloys make them excellent candidates for aerospace, defense and transportation lightweighting initiatives. The alloy series was developed based on newly understood ‘Long Period Stacking Order’ (LPSO) nanostructured phases that we have modified using reduced rare earth contents and further microalloying additions to control flammability, corrosion, and to strengthen the primary alpha phase. The resulting product is a lightweight magnesium alloy casting or wrought product with uniform high strength and ductility, directly comparable to the 7000 series aluminum alloys and a metal alternative to carbon fiber composites. The efforts represent DoD-sponsored collaborations initiated through our LIFT (Lightweight Innovations for Tomorrow) membership and networking efforts, and we want to recognize LIFT for that role. Specifically, the Missile Defense Agency’s support funds a collaboration with Department of Energy’s Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), who is helping us optimize thermomechanical processing for producing very high-strength thin-walled structures used in aerospace and defense structures; while the recently selected Army sponsored effort will fund a collaborative effort with Dr Alan Luo’s group at The Ohio State University to develop heat treatable alloy variants for thick-section castings, die castings, plate, and forgings useful for helicopter and potentially armor applications. The casting alloys have the flexibility of being formed or heat treated to produce a final product or produced net shape (such as by high pressure die-casting). Numerous components on U.S. missile defense and fast response weapon platforms would benefit from the reduced weight of higher-strength wrought and cast Magnesium alloys while aerospace and transportation applications would also see benefits. If these high strength and ductility magnesium alloys can be produced at sufficiently low cost, which we believe they can be, there will be a high driving force to use these lightweight materials in many different industries,” said Mr. Andrew Sherman, CEO, Terves.

“UN resolution on human shields will help bring security and stability to the Middle East”

Posted by fidest press agency su sabato, 30 giugno 2018

NEW YORK – World Jewish Congress President Ronald S. Lauder praised Tuesday’s United Nations vote condemning the use of human shields as an “important” step that “will help bring security and stability” to the Middle East.“We welcome the UN General Assembly’s condemnation of the cynical use of human shields by terrorist groups like Hamas,” said Lauder. “This is an important step forward in the global war on terror and a critical moral stance that will help bring security and stability to the Middle East and the wider world.”The UN General Assembly Tuesday voted to condemn use of civilians as human shields by terrorist organizations. The resolution is specifically aimed at Hamas, the Palestinian terror group that runs the Gaza Strip and which has used human shields in conflicts with Israel as a propaganda tactic. Hamas terrorists have hid behind women and children in hospitals and schools while launching missile attacks on Israel. The condemnation of human shields is part of the UN’s update of its counter-terrorism strategy.The UN resolution explicitly condemned terrorist groups for the double war crime of hiding behind women and children while attacking civilians. The resolution decries the use of “schools and hospitals, for military purposes such as launching attacks and storing weapons,” as well as the use of “civilians to shield military objectives from attacks.” “Every terror group that cowardly hides behind women and children while using hospitals and schools as bases to attack civilians should be held accountable and punished,” Lauder added.The UN resolution is an update of its Global Counter Terrorism Strategy, which was first adopted in 2006 and gets reviewed every two years.
