Skyworks Global Appoints Distribution Partner for Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia & Singapore

The Hawk 5 Gyroplane

SALT LAKE CITY, UT, U.S.A., May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Skyworks Global Inc. (“Skyworks”), the global leader in gyronautics, announced that it has signed a sales and marketing distribution agreement with One08 Group. The distribution agreement covers the sales territories of Australia, Indonesia, Malaysia and Singapore for Skyworks’ five seat Hawk 5 aircraft.

The Hawk 5 gyroplane uses a free-spinning rotor to provide lift and an airplane engine for thrust. Utilizing an engine driven pre-rotation system while on the ground, the Hawk 5 is capable of jump take-offs, allowing take-off from almost anywhere. In flight, the unpowered rotor is always in autorotation, so in the unlikely event of an engine failure, the Hawk 5’s rotor would continue to spin providing a normal glidepath, keeping the pilot in complete control. Since it has no transmission or antitorque equipment, the Hawk 5 eliminates the flight risk, periodic maintenance, and lost business days associated with these systems, providing the owner greater safety, reliability, and lower costs. Coupled with the flying simplicity of fixed wing aircraft, the Hawk 5 is a true workhorse.

Capt. Sanjeev Mathur, the CEO of One08 Group stated “Skyworks Global is the world leader in commercializing gyroplanes and we are extremely excited to be working with them to take these transformative flight capabilities to market, together. The autorotating rotor is a brilliant safety feature which continues to give the Pilot complete control and land the aircraft in case of an unlikely engine failure. Something every safety conscious organization needs to adopt.”

“We are extremely pleased to be partnering with One08 Group to bring the promise of safe, sustainable and affordable gyro-technology to this region of the world,” said Skyworks Executive Director Brig. General (Ret) John E. Michel. “Our proven Hawk 5 gyroplane delivers unprecedented safety, reliability and operational flexibility, providing users with a dynamic platform to achieve a wide array of possible missions.”

About One08 Group:

One08 Group are distributors for Aviation, Maritime, Mining and other heavy industry products, equipment and services, representing manufacturers from across the globe. They also act as Mandate or Facilitator for commodity deals. One08 Group aims to continue partnering with innovative Companies providing niche solutions. For more information about the company, visit www.one08group.com

About Skyworks:

Skyworks Global Inc. is the world leader in gyronautics, the study and design of sustained autorotative flight represented by the company's gyroplane technology. Skyworks has more than 40 patents with several more underway, all obtained in an effort to radically change not only the way gyroplanes are perceived, but also the way they are utilized. From mass personnel transportation, agriculture, and border protection to literally changing the economies of developing nations, Skyworks' goal is to change the paradigm of aerial technology.

The French-Turkish director of 'Make a Wish’ has also signed with a US management & production company for representation.

[Meta's] worldly life and artistic experience, coupled with her perspective as a woman who had to rise through the ranks of the European film industry…positions her as a true asset to [the US].”

— John W. Beach

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Acclaimed filmmaker Meta Akkus, known for her distinct method of incorporating stylistic elements of childlike naivety with fanciful and mature imagery into her work, has been attached to a number of US projects as the film industry ramps up the production slate for a post-COVID-19 world.

The co-director of the Soho International Film Festival documentary feature 'Turkish Passport', and helmer of dozens of commercials for big-name brands like Chanel and BMW, will direct a number of films, a television series as well as commercials as arranged through East Coast outfit Lamplighter.

Most notably, Meta is due to collaborate with acclaimed production company Go Atticus, who boast Cadillac, ASICS and Nike as clients.

In addition, Meta is in talks with Fairway Film Alliance for future projects, and is also expected to collaborate with the Tony-award nominated producers behind film 'The Unborn.'

In a statement offered to press, John W. Beach at Gravity Squared Entertainment stated, “Meta is truly a one-of-a-kind filmmaker. Her worldly life and artistic experience, coupled with her perspective as a woman who had to rise through the ranks of the European film industry on her own merit, positions her as a true asset to the American film industry.”

It is expected Meta will start filming immediately on those projects which have skeleton crews and can be facilitated under strict COVID-19 mandates, as the industry shut-down has created an urgent need for fresh narrative content.

Dr. Eugene Gu: Changing the World Through Cool Quit

Dr. Eugene Gu

Dr. Eugene Gu

LOS ANGELES, CA, USA, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — When it comes to changing the world in the midst of the coronavirus pandemic, not many have been as effective as Dr. Eugene Gu. Dr. Gu is the CEO and co-founder of Cool Quit, LLC, a smoking cessation telemedicine company that has now turned its attention, infrastructure, and resources to the fight against COVID-19. "It may sound like a platitude by now, but I truly do believe that we are all in this together. That means we must all do what we can whether we are big or small to help each other and the American people during the worst pandemic in modern history."

With new updates to Cool Quit, it seems that Dr. Eugene Gu's stock is on the rise. "We are very happy to announce that we can now offer at-home coronavirus testing kits to patients." Eugene Gu said when talking about the latest telemedicine innovation in his product line. "We have effectively been able to leverage the changing healthcare laws and expansion of telemedicine allowances to get people free telehealthcare and even free home testing kits that are reimbursed by their insurance companies."

Before the at-home coronavirus testing kits were announced, however, Cool Quit had been already putting in the work with free COVID-19 screening, evaluation, and testing for elderly Medicare patients in 42 states including Alabama, Arizona, California, Florida, Georgia, Indiana, Iowa, Maine, Michigan, Montana, New Hampshire, New Jersey, New York, New Mexico, North Carolina, Ohio, Oklahoma, Pennsylvania, Tennessee, Texas, Utah, Vermont, Washington, and West Virginia. "It was a huge deal and I am happy to say that thanks to the flexibility of our staff as well as our ability to stay vigilant and nimble, we were able to get testing set up in those locations and even rural underserved areas that needed it the most." Eugene Gu noted. "I think that right now, it is important for us to stand up for those that need help the most, and that means our elderly seniors who are most affected by this pandemic. We also are reaching out to patients with underlying health conditions like obesity, diabetes, hypertension." Eugene Gu continued.

Eugene Gu, it should be noted, is a Stanford trained medical doctor who found his way into the medical testing world. "It was a way for me to do something greater than just seeing patients one on one. I found it to be a way to impact communities in a more positive way." Eugene Gu said. "I found that developing telemedicine tools and health monitoring programs could impact more people at once than my practice ever could."

Eugene Gu is also quick to point out how impressed he is with the doctors within his own organization and their ability to react in times of crisis. "I think it is important that physicians always put their patients first." Eugene Gu noted. "For many of our physicians at Cool Quit, telemedicine is a completely new technology to them." Eugene Gu continues. "But they learned quickly and adapted to the rapidly changing healthcare needs that the worst pandemic in modern history requires. I couldn’t be more proud of their hard work and dedication".

Child Abuse in the Time of COVID-19

This is a stressful time for everyone, but children are particularly vulnerable during this crisis.

In dysfunctional households, lockdown policies can translate into a nightmare; a child may be stuck at home with an abuser.”

— Dr. Linda Miles

UNITED STATES, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Child Abuse in the Time of COVID-19
Right now, we’re undergoing a once-in-a-century (for most of us, a once-in-a-lifetime) pandemic, an international health crisis that has caused unprecedented fear and pain for many people and nations, has upended our norms, and is restructuring our current reality. In such uncertain times, it’s imperative to listen to the experts and follow their instructions to ensure that we emerge safe, healthy, and alive—with our loved ones just as intact. Above all, it’s important to face uncertainty and fear with the only thing that is guaranteed to make today and tomorrow better: loving kindness toward ourselves, our loved ones, and society as a whole.

This three-article series—examining Child Abuse, Suicide, and Domestic Violence— shares the expert insight of mental health professional Dr. Linda Miles, with content primarily drawn from an interview conducted by Francine Bianco Tax. These articles are directed to anyone who is struggling with issues that were initiated or amplified by COVID-19—though they aren’t exclusive to this pandemic. These articles are meant to raise awareness and to provide resources, hope, and guidance toward overcoming these dangers.

There is always a way out. There is always the possibility of a better future. Look and reach for a helping hand. Help is only a phone call away.

Child Abuse Hotline (FL): 1-800-962-4453

Child Abuse Hotline (National): 1-800-4-A-CHILD (4-22-4453)

How can we protect children from abuse, sexual slavery, and domestic violence when they and we are sequestered at home?

Today we’re experiencing a unique crisis: a once-in-a-century pandemic which—in just a handful of months—has killed hundreds of thousands of people worldwide, brought the global economy to its knees, and made the future a bit more uncertain.

It’s also altered family dynamics in many households.

Beneath the dark cloud of COVID-19 that has encircled the world, there’s an underlying crisis that is more quiet yet just as bleak and heartbreaking: child maltreatment. Child welfare organizations warn that lockdown measures will increase cases of sexual, physical, and emotional abuse against children. The world’s lockdown measures, while essential for (and successful in) curbing the rapid spread of the virus, are revealing some unfortunate “side effect” consequences.

Stay-at-home policies and lockdown orders can result in happy memories and family-bonding opportunities for healthy families. However, in dysfunctional households, these same policies and orders can translate into a nightmare. If a family member or home perpetrator is abusive toward a child, the child is now stuck at home with an abuser. The National Center for Missing and Exploited Children received 4.2 million reports of child abuse in April 2020 (an increase in 3 million compared to April 2019).

In dysfunctional households, lockdown policies can translate into a nightmare; a child may be stuck at home with an abuser.

Teachers, therapists, guidance counselors, and medical encounters (from dentist appointments to ER visits) provide mandatory reporting: they can notice and report if a child is injured or malnourished. With schools and nurseries shut down in most states, children now lack this extremely vital support system. With doctor or dentist visits postponed, another source of reporting is also lost. Caring individuals who may have been able to otherwise comfort, support, or provide help are unable to witness the child’s current situation. There are children in America who live in a constant state of fear; today, it is harder than ever for them to gain help or relief by being around (or confiding in) peers and safe adults.

Unemployment—another repercussion of the pandemic—can cause great stress, toxic thoughts and behaviors, and economic strain. Economic hardship is considered a strong predictor of child abuse and neglect. One 2018 study showed that a 1% increase in unemployment leads to a 20% increase in child neglect (failure to provide for a child’s basic health and wellbeing needs), along with a decrease in basic goods (e.g. grocery) expenses. Dysfunctional parents (e.g. who prioritize drinking, doing drugs, or pursuing other vices) won’t really care about attaining food for their kids—and they probably won’t get in a car, drive, and wait in a line to bring home the bread.

Some children only get to eat one substantial meal per day, and that breakfast or lunch is provided by their school or local community center. With these caretaking systems currently closed, these children risk going hungry. Malnutrition significantly affects the development of a child’s brain, and can actually stunt his or her emotional, physical, and mental growth with long-term consequences. And if that isn’t bad enough, child traffickers and online predators appear to be shifting their business models to evolve with the current situation. And given that forensic labs are all but shut down in some states, child exploitation stories are taking a backseat to murder and shooting cases.

So what can be done?

If you’re a victim of abuse, contact a hotline and you will receive immediate help. Do not stay quarantined with your abuser. The Rape, Abuse, and Incest National Network (RAINN) reports that, of the young people who reached out in March 2020, 67% identified their perpetrator as a family member and 79% were in lockdown with that person. In 1 out of 5 cases where the minor lived with the abuser, RAINN helped the minor to immediately contact the police.

Do not hesitate to reach out if you or someone else is being abused or neglected.

Since regular channels of reporting (like schools and doctor visits) have been disrupted, it’s essential to remember that there are other channels, including confidential hotlines and virtual outreach centers. Do not hesitate to reach out if you or someone else is being abused or neglected. If you discern abuse, step in and take responsibility for reporting it.

Domestic Violence in the Time of COVID-19

Domestic violence around the world has increased exponentially since the Covid Crisis Began

For some, a stay-at-home policy can be a time of peace, calm,
joy, and family-bonding. For others, staying at home is closer to
a prison sentence. It brings sadness, danger, and abuse.”

— Dr. Linda Miles

UNITED STATES, May 28, 2020 /EINPresswire.com/ — Domestic Violence in the Time of COVID-19

Domestic Abuse Hotline: 800-799-SAFE (7233)

What can you do if you are suffering from domestic violence?

Or perhaps someone you know—a family member, friend, neighbor, or community member—suffers from domestic abuse. The likelihood of this being someone’s reality has sadly increased over the past few months.

For some people, “lockdown” equals misery.

COVID-19 is an unconventional virus that has caused unconventional challenges. Many nations throughout the world, the U.S. amongst them on a state-by-state basis, have issued stay-at-home orders and lock-down mandates in efforts to mitigate the spread of the virus and flatten the curve. According to the World Health Organization (WHO), the international number of daily reported coronavirus cases is finally decreasing after more than 3 months of ravaging Europe. The situation remains fragile, but healthcare experts across the globe agree that stay-at-home measures have indeed helped to minimize the virus’ spread.

For some—like for those who are healthy, live comfortably at home, have the ability to work from home, and are in good company—this stay-at-home policy can be a time of peace, calm, joy, and family-bonding. For others—as for people whose homes are anything but a sanctuary—staying at home is closer to a prison sentence. It brings sadness, danger, and abuse.

It can be life-threatening.

For some, a stay-at-home policy can be a time of peace, calm, joy, and family-bonding. For others, staying at home is closer to a prison sentence. It brings sadness, danger, and abuse. And it can be life-threatening.

A sad and obvious fact: domestic violence existed around the world long before COVID-19. But today’s circumstances make it worse. COVID-19 has caused major economic devastation, disconnected many from their communities and support systems, mitigated or terminated people’s jobs and sources of income, and caused widespread uncertainty, panic, fear, and stress.

An article by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration notes that these conditions may stimulate violence in households where it didn’t exist, or worsen violence in homes where domestic abuse is already happening. Even before COVID-19, the statistics are daunting. It’s estimated that 1 in 4 women and 1 in 10 men experience intimate partner sexual violence (which can result in physical injury or death), physical violence, or stalking in their lifetime. Tens of millions of women and men have or will experience psychological aggression by an intimate partner. And U.S. crime reports suggest that 1 in 6 homicide victims are killed by an intimate partner.

Today, the numbers are getting worse.

The WHO notes that, in the time of COVID-19, many countries have reported a spike in domestic violence—including, in some countries, a 60% increase in emergency calls by women subjected to their partner’s violence (comparing April 2019 with April 2020). One expert warns that there could be an extra 31 million cases of gender-based violence is lockdowns are to continue for six months.

Why is this?

We might all be bombarded by uncertainty, fear, and stress during this time, but some people succumb to unhealthy coping mechanisms. For example, because of COVID-19, maybe your partner is now jobless. Sources of income are drying out or suddenly nonexistent. In self-isolation, that person feels angry, lonely, and depressed. They might “self-medicate” or “cope” by consuming more alcohol, doing drugs, and/or losing their temper and self-control. Addictions may form or worsen. Statistically, men have a harder time admitting that they have a problem and do not usually seek mental health assistance.

Another problem is a missing safety net. Domestic violence patients—including children—usually end up in emergency rooms. Doctors and other hospital staff often have been trained to notice the signs of domestic abuse. The same applies in other settings—abused kids might get noticed at school, abused women might get noticed at social gatherings with friends or community members. Now, however, with citizens urged to “stay home” at all costs, these domestic violence cases are unseen and unreported. Those safety nets are gone.

Yet there are others, still.

Here is the good news.

In the words of WHO’s Regional Director Dr. Hans Henri P. Kluge: “Violence is preventable, not inevitable.” Violence isn’t a “family affair” or a private matter. If you suffer from domestic violence, reach out. If you see someone else suffering, speak up.

“Violence is preventable, not inevitable.” –Dr. Hans Kluge

Realize you’re not alone (or to let that person know that he or she is not alone). Realize that this is a situation you can and must emerge from.

COVID-19 won’t go away any time soon or on its own. Neither will domestic abuse. This is a long-term situation. If you’re isolated, you’re at risk. But you’re not alone.

You are not alone.

Again: YOU ARE NOT ALONE.
