Topics ranged from world events to challenges and opportunities facing patient safety,” said Joe Kiani, Founder of the Patient Safety Movement Foundation. “The Carter Center has helped improve the quality of life for more than 80 countries and is on the verge of eradicating guinea worm disease, the second disease ever to be eradicated, after small pox. We appreciate their support in recognizing those that are helping to eliminate preventable patient deaths.”

Datsun History

Datsun originated in Japan as DAT-GO (the DAT-car) almost a century ago in 1914. The word DAT means ‘lightning-fast’ in Japanese but is also a reference to the first letters of family names of the three financiers who supported the business at the time: Den, Aoyama and Takeuchi. Using the same logic, it was promoted as Durable, Attractive and Trustworthy, or DAT for short.
In 1933, Nissan’s founding father Yoshisuke Aikawa took over the business with a vision of “mobility for all”. The introduction of a light-weight, economical yet resilient car to meet the aspirations of young Japanese people in the early 1930s was named the ‘son of DAT’ – Datson – which later changed to Datsun. Local engineering and mass-production made the founder’s dream a reality.

Panasonic Develops Connectors for Connecting In-vehicle LED Lamp Modules to Boards

Business Wire India

Panasonic Corporation announced that it has developed connectors for connecting in-vehicle LED lamp modules to control boards. These connectors improve in designing in-vehicle LED lighting.


This Smart News Release features multimedia. View the full release here: http://www.businesswire.com/news/home/20160608005740/en/


Connectors for Connecting In-vehicle LED Lamp Modules (Photo: Business Wire)

Connectors for Connecting In-vehicle LED Lamp Modules (Photo: Business Wire)

One of these is a "Board to FPC Connector", the first of its kind in the industry*1 that is suitable for cable connection to daytime running lights (DRLs), which are kept switched on during the daytime, and in rear lamps.
The other is a "Board to Wire Connector", the lowest-profile connector in the industry*2 that is suitable for LED headlamp modules.


These new products have the following features:

[Board to FPC Connector]
1. This connector has a metal terminal connection structure that eliminates the need for FPC contacts for the first time in the industry*1, realizing direct connection between the LED-chip-mounted FPC and the control power board. It requires no relay harness, allowing the use of fewer components and fewer man-hours.

The connector's double-clip structure ensures its resistance to vibration and temperatures up to 125 degrees Celsius, both extremely desirable properties for headlamps.

[Board to Wire Connector]
1. This connector has an in-house-developed terminal shape that gives the connector a height of only 3.4 mm, the lowest profile of any connector in the industry*2. This low profile connector exerts a minimal effect on the lighting angle of the LED, enabling smaller and low profile LED lamp modules to be easily manufactured.

The connector's unique LED headlamp terminal structure gives it vital vibration resistance as well as heat resistance up to 125 degrees Celsius.

  *1:   On June 8, 2016, it was developed as a two-piece type board to FPC connector (according to research by Panasonic).
  *2:   On June 8, 2016, it was developed as a connector for in-vehicle LED lamp modules (according to research by Panasonic).

Two Best Friends Finally Decided to Self Publish their ‘Untitled’ Story after a Long Wait of 7 Years

Business Wire India
Manik Nath and Ashish Malviya, two best friends, who have been friends from long time, but now are separated by distance of seas, finally released their book, Untitled – Every Life Needs a Name, in India, through Educreation Publishing, India's Number 1 Self Publishing Website.

Manik Nath is presently in Johannesburg, South Africa, and Ashish Malviya presently lives in Pune, but both of them have an inbound friendship which enables them to write and release their wonderful feelings in the form of a book.

'Untitled – Every Life Needs a Name' is basically a light read. The book is full of silly doings and funny acts of two teenage friends over love and otherwise. The core of the story revolves around the friendship of two best friends and their teenage love stories. The story will leave a nice smile on the readers as they can relate some part of the story or other with their own lives in a positive way. A reader may find himself laughing on and on while going through the comic and funny instances throughout the book.

The book has received a good response since its release; speaking about their experiences, Manik and Ashish told, "The feedback from a few readers is that the book passes a message friendship is the key to a lot of things in life."

The publication of 'Untitled' is a true success of the concept of self publishing in India. Through the self publishing platforms like Educreation Publishing, the authors can not only live their dreams but also can reach the readers with their works.

Speaking over directives and steps towards their first book, Manik and Ashish said, "After finishing the book, it took almost 7 years before the book could finally be published. Initially, we sent the script to many traditional publishers and got rejected, with one of the publishers we came very close to get published, but the publisher wanted us to modify the story to suit something which the publisher thought would be a hit in the market; however, we as authors were not ready to do this. We gave up hope at that time. After 7 years, we realized that the publishing scenario in India has changed and esteemed self publishing houses like Educreation have come forward to help new authors like us. We approached a few self publishing houses including Educreation. The commitment shown by the management team of Educreation in removing the publishing hurdles, and the dedication shown by the publishing team of Educreation helped our dream come true. We thank the team of Educreation for helping new authors like us who wanted to come in the Indian book market and for helping us realize our dreams."

With these words from two emerging Indian authors, no doubt Educreation Publishing is worth for its rank of Number 1 Self Publishing Website in India. By using self publishing services of Educreation Publishing, any emerging author can self publish his book in India, conveniently and professionally. The book published from Educreation Platform is made available internationally.

'Untitled – Every Life Needs a Name' is also available in more than 100 countries and in more than 39,000 locations as Paperback and eBook. In India, the book is available on Amazon, Flipkart, BooksCamel.com, Infibeam, Paytm, Rediff Books, Google Playstore, Kindle and many other places.
