The Business Research Company’s Metal Global Market Report 2021: COVID-19 Impact and Recovery to 2030

LONDON, GREATER LONDON, UK, January 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — New year, new updates! Our reports have been revised for market size, forecasts, and strategies to take on 2021 after the COVID-19 impact: https://www.thebusinessresearchcompany.com/global-market-reports

Automated manufacturing systems are gaining popularity as they enhance manufacturing productivity and reduce operating costs in the metal industry. An automation system refers to a machine, tool or technology such as robotic and AI technology that helps to reduce human intervention and improve safety in the metal manufacturing processes such as processing, assembling, material handling. This metal market trend allows metal manufacturing companies to increase efficiency and production, improve safety on the manufacturing floor, enhance product quality, perform complex and varied tasks, enhance process stability, provide flexibility to produce products and eliminate routine manual tasks. According to a KPMG report, 63% of the executives say they are considering investing in automation. In 2018, according to an article in Production Machining, an online magazine, 56% of global companies consider automation in manufacturing processes and observed 30% of increase in their production. According to global robotics report 2016 by International Federation of Robotics (IFR), a robotic company, global industrial robots deployed in manufacturing processes are expected to increase to 2.6 million units by 2019.

The global metal market size is expected to grow from $3.32 trillion in 2020 to $3.54 trillion in 2021 at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 6.6%. The growth is mainly due to the companies rearranging their operations and recovering from the COVID-19 impact, which had earlier led to restrictive containment measures involving social distancing, remote working, and the closure of commercial activities that resulted in operational challenges. Metal market analysis shows that the market is expected to reach $4.61 trillion in 2025 at a CAGR of 7%.

DELFT, ZUID-HOLLAND, NETHERLANDS, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — TechnologyCatalogue.com, the fastest-growing global platform for technology solutions in the energy sector, is partnering with India-based Avatyr Business Consulting to provide Indian tech suppliers a much-needed boost in positioning themselves globally.

“This partnership with TechnologyCatalogue.com offers huge potential for all the Indian tech start-ups and scale-ups to get exposure to global markets. Indian tech start-ups have groundbreaking technologies especially on digitalisation and automation that could revolutionise operations of manufacturing, industrial and energy companies everywhere in the world, and yet only a few with enough resources have found their way offshore,” Arvind Vasu, Avatyr founder highlighted.

The highlight of this partnership is the development of the India Technology Platform dedicated to technological solutions developed by Indian innovators, especially those who are targeting players in the energy and industrial sectors. With India having the third largest start-up ecosystem in the world, the India platform is expected to showcase cutting-edge technologies such as Internet of Things, artificial intelligence and data analytics.

“There are also a lot of deep tech, engineering and research-based efforts in India expected to bring out new robotics and hardware-based technologies. Our goal is to have them hosted on the platform so the world can have easy access to these novel solutions from Indian
innovators,” Vasu added.

The platform is also expected to benefit Indian industrial and energy companies as this will bring together local technological solutions in one portal, making search, selection and deployment of technologies faster and easier.

“We are thrilled to have Arvind Vasu on board as we believe his involvement with Indian tech start-ups, venture capitalists and accelerators combined with his past experience at ABB is a great asset in ensuring the successful rollout of the India Technology Platform,” TechnologyCatalogue.com co-founder and managing partner Erik Nijveld noted.

Prior to starting Avatyr, Vasu has held various positions in Sales, Marketing and Management and worked in the US, Malaysia, China and India. In 2004, he moved to Bangalore to start ABB’s Robotics Business, which grew to exceed revenues of $20 million with over 100 employees in 2009.

“India’s burgeoning start-up and innovation culture promises a wide range of existing and upcoming technological innovations not just for the energy sector but also for other industries. Partnering with Avatyr and launching India Technology Platform confirm our commitment to continue to expand our selection of technologies, ensuring that every business challenge in the energy sector has appropriate innovative solutions on our platform,” Nijveld concluded.

Registering technologies and having tech pages on the India Technology Platform will be free of charge. Premium services that include Tech Positioning Programme, Data Analytics for the page, among others will also be available for technology suppliers, with 20-percent special discount for those who will register before 31 March 2021.

Currently, TechnologyCatalogue.com has a global platform for technological solutions in the energy sector as well as country portals for the Netherlands, Australia and UK markets. The firm also tapped partners in the US, Kuwait, UK, and the Guianas and Caribbean for tailored country offerings.

Why do Estate Planners need to Invest in Digital Marketing?

TUCSON, AZ, USA, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — If you own an estate planning law firm, your long-term success can be greatly hindered without investing in digital marketing. As more and more customers search for local businesses online, digital marketing has changed the way many markets operate. Having a smart digital marketing strategy has become an absolute must for any local company wanting to attract new customers and build its online presence.

When you need your business to stand out in any established market and get your message heard by as many potential clients as possible, you need to expand your relevance across the Web. The days of newspaper ads and printed ads are over. We are in the age of the Internet and have been for several years. Here are the top reasons why you need to set digital marketing your top priority in 2021:

Consumer Culture
Print media has lost its importance as more and more users are finding businesses (and most other information) via the Web. You need to start offering engaging content that can help your audience shape their buying decisions. Building a strong online presence can help your business get found much more easily, which in turn, help drive new customers to your practice.

Digital Marketing is Cost-effective
If you think SEO and social media marketing campaigns are expensive, you have not checked the prices of print media. Every business wants affordable ways to sell its services to its audience and in 2021, digital marketing can be a significant and viable option. As compared to traditional ad methods, SEO and other digital marketing channels can much more effective.

Targeting Smartphone Users
People seem to spend most of their time looking at laptops and mobile screens. What’s the point of posting a business ad in an expensive newspaper when no one is going to read it? From texting with friends to listening to online lectures, users are spending hours on their mobile phones. Digital marketing offers you opportunities to cater to the needs of targeted smartphone users.

Build a Brand Image
Whenever people see your product or hear your brand name, the first thing they do is to look up your company on Google. Having a strong business website design and professional details can help to build a positive perception of your business. Many consumers only pick a business for products and services after doing online research about that company.

Boost Business ROI
Effective digital marketing strategies don’t need a lot of investment. With a relevant marketing channel, you can land lots of new clients without spending a lot. Digital marketing can easily boost operational revenue if you target the right audience. With social media alone, a few hundred dollars spent on micro-targeted Facebook ads can generate thousands of dollars in new business. So, be smart and invest in digital media marketing for an impressive ROI.

Final Verdict.
Digital marketing can be a huge benefit to your business. Call us at (833) 264-4968 or check us out at https://estateplanningdigitalmarketing.com to schedule your complimentary consultation.

With programs such as Gross Global Happiness, the World Happiness Foundation supports leaders from governments and organizations that are creating the conditions for happiness and well-being for all.”

— Luis Gallardo, Founder & President – World Happiness Foundation

MIAMI, FLORIDA, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Globally, happiness is one of our most important goals. Studies show that we value it more than success, knowledge, or material items. And yet, in a world that has continued to progress and become objectively better by most conceivable standards, why do many find this such a difficult goal to reach?

The Gross Global Happiness summit is an innovative executive education event in which people worldwide come to tackle these very questions. We will learn, unlearn, and share experiences on the topic of happiness, bringing together a multitude of perspectives and expertise.

This experience will combine theory and practice, touching on the latest research from positive psychologists and delving into the practical applications of what we’ve learned and are still discovering in the field. Happiness will be brought front and center as we explore and understand how people can lead happier, more meaningful lives.

The Importance of focusing on Gross Global Happiness:
Growing inequalities lost diversity, pandemics, and climate change are only some of the serious challenges facing humanity in the coming decades. All of these crises are interconnected and we cannot confront them in isolation. Our current economic systems are failing to foster a productive and healthy balance between societal, individual, and environmental needs and goals. We need to work together at a systemic level to create the necessary change.

Legal amateur radio use offers STEM training for young people

Ham Radio Prep was established in 2017 to assist people interested in obtaining an FCC-issued amateur radio license.

SHERIDAN, WYOMING, USA, January 18, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — Amateur radio is a valuable resource for the United States and its territories, serving as a training ground for young people and providing local and national communications assistance in the event of emergencies and communications network failures. The misuse of amateur radio is condoned because of the value of its spectrum to our nation.

The use of amateur radio systems, networks and frequencies for other than their intended purposes by licensed amateur radio operators undermines the value of the radio service in serving the public.

In a news release issued by the Federal Communications Commission on Sunday, the agency said: “Individuals using radios in the Amateur or Personal Radio Services in this (illegal) manner may be subject to severe penalties, including significant fines, seizure of the offending equipment, and, in some cases, criminal prosecution.”

Licensed amateur radio operators agree to uphold the law when they take to the airwaves as a matter of their ability to use valuable radio spectrum created for their sole use. Amateur radio is a welcoming place for those who wish to contribute to the art of radio science or the resource of ham radio.

Young people who become involved with ham radio activities engage in a variety of learning skills that assist them later in science, technical, engineering and mathematics (STEM) careers. By learning electronics theory, building communications networks or even building their own equipment, they learn valuable skills that assist them in the learning process later in life, especially as they study STEM topics or enter STEM careers.

Ham radio operators also perform public service with their own equipment and skills to assist with local, regional and national emergencies. Because amateur radio operators have built their own networks designed to function in backup mode, they often can communicate when regular communications such as cellular infrastructure or even public safety systems are knocked off the air. In situations like this, ham radio operators perform public service in conjunction with local, county, state and federal government agencies to ensure communications can reach in and out of affected areas.

When tornadoes ravage the Midwest, hurricanes pound the east coast or wildfires rip through the West, amateur radio networks ensure important messages get through when other systems and their infrastructures are knocked off the air from damage, overload and more.

There are more than 750,000 licensed amateur radio operators in the United States and its territories. Ham Radio Prep offers courses designed to teach people online the information they need to take exams that grant them Federal Communications Commission licenses for amateur radio. The courses also teach students how to be legal and safe on the airwaves, in accordance with FCC rules and regulations.

Ham Radio Prep was established in 2017 to assist people interested in obtaining an FCC-issued amateur radio license by offering courses for the FCC Technician, General and Extra class licenses. For more information about Ham Radio Prep, go to http://www.HamRadioPrep.com.

Akin Gump Seeks Six-Month Stall on Racketeering Related Affidavits in Akron: Lucky Star Analysis

Entities acting on behalf of Energy Harbor and the international law firm of Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld have asked a federal bankruptcy court for a delay.

CLEVELAND, OH, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — In a move seemingly reeking of desperation, entities acting on behalf of Energy Harbor and the international law firm of Akin Gump Straus Hauer & Feld on Jan. 7 asked a federal bankruptcy court in Akron, Ohio, for an “emergency” six-month delay in responding to racketeering-related interrogatories requested by Judge Alan Koschik on November 24 of 2020, according to publicly filed federal documents discovered by Lucky Star Communications, an Ohio-based communications firm.

The affidavits were scheduled to be filed with the court on Jan. 8 2021 in In re: Pleasants Corp. Case No. 18-59763. They were demanded of Akin Gump lobbyists Sean D’Arcy, Henry Terhune, James Tucker and Geoffrey Verhoff, who billed $2.8 million in Ohio state lobbying fees to forward the passage of Ohio H.B. 6. That bill gave approximately $1.4 billion in subsidies to First Energy Solutions, an operator of two nuclear power plants in Ohio that were said to be losing money without offering proof.

In the "emergency" request, Akin Gump argued that it had already prepared the affidavits and would be able to file them on time in the court so ruled.

Judge Koschik has ordered that a hearing be held on the “emergency” request via telephonic hearing on Jan. 19 at 10 a.m.

Four Ohio-based lobbyists for H.B. 6 were indicted on racketeering charges in a $61 bribery scheme designed to aid the bill’s passage. Also indicted in the scheme – allegedly Ohio’s largest governmental bribery ever – was Ohio’s then-Speaker of the House, Larry Householder, a Republican.

Two of the Ohio lobbyists have pled guilty to the scheme, but none of the Akin Gump Ohio lobbyists have been charged with any crime
.
One of the Akin Gump lobbyists, Geoffrey Verhoff, also serves as vice chair of the finance committee of the Republican National Committee.

The request for affidavits arose because, according to court documents, Akin Gump employees were involved on almost a daily basis in consulting with the accused racketeers.

According to court records, it was in fact a check from Akin Gump that served as the initial retainer to one of the racketeers who has pled guilty, Juan Cespedes of the Oxley Group.

The Ohio Consumers’ Counsel, a state agency charged with guarding the interests of the state’s energy consumers, filed an objection to the delay, stating that no valid reason for it had been given.

Some of the specific questions asked of the Akin Gump lobbyists, some of whom were attorneys, were as follows

a. Describe your role in the 2018 and 2019 contests for the speakership of the Ohio House of Representatives. (All.)

b. Describe your role in the 2018 general elections for the Ohio legislature. (All.)

c. Describe nature of your interactions and relationship with Juan Cespedes and the Oxley Group. (All.)

i. What acts were involved in “mobilizing the HB 6 vote” in July 2019? (D’Arcy.)

According to court documents, the interrogatories above became necessary because U.S. Attorney for the Southern District of Ohio David DeVillers refused on numerous occasions to provide relevant information to Judge Koschik on whether these potentially racketeering-related fees should be paid.

FirstEnergy, the parent company of bankrupt FirstEnergy Solutions, is currently being investigated not only by the U.S. Attorney, but by the Public Utilities Commission of Ohio, the Securities and Exchange Commission, and the Attorney General of the State of of Ohio, David Yost.

According to court records, Yost makes the puzzling claim that the entire bankruptcy claim was part of the fraudulent racketeering scheme. He hasn’t explained this in detail, but FirstEnergy Solutions, now renamed Energy Harbor, initially received a bid from Nucor, the nation’s largest generator of electricity from nuclear power, to buy them out of bankruptcy.

This offer was rejected, and FirstEnergy Solutions/Energy Harbor bonds fell into the hands of a number of Wall Street Vulture firms, which bought bonds for as low as .30 cents on the dollar and later converted the bonds into stock in the post bankruptcy firm, gaining operating control.

In a surprise move made immediately upon leaving bankruptcy, the firm was drained of $800 million in operating funds, which went to buy out one set of Wall Street vultures for a huge cash profit.

Two Wall Street vulture fund executives, John Kianni (formerly of Cove Key Management LP), now Energy Harbor executive chairman, and Stephen Burzanian (formerly of Avenue Capital Corp.), now the company's chief strategy officer, ended up running the company, which operates two of the country's most outdated and potentially dangerous nuclear power plants in the country.

Currently, Nuveen Corp. (a financial firm owned by TIAA) and Avenue Capital own virtually all of the company, owning 45% and 16% respectively.

Energy Harbor faces $10 billion in eventual clean-up costs, but only has $2 billion in its clean-up trust fund.

“These Wall Street vulture funds dealt out some of the nation’s most dangerous nuclear facilities as if they were poker chips,” believes Jeff Barge, CEO of Lucky Star Communications, an Ohio communications firm. “It was a high-stakes game of financial poker, and the financial vultures of Wall Street won."

ObiiGO, the World's First Auto Repair Bidding App Signing Up Repair and Oil Facilities

ObiiGO, the World's First Auto Repair Bidding App Signing Up Repair and Oil Facilities

FAYETTEVILLE, AR, UNITED STATES, January 17, 2021 /EINPresswire.com/ — ObiiGO’s successful launch at the end of 2020 has more demand for shops to join. As one customer put it, “I now feel confident about the repair process”. ObiiGO will educate the consumer better than anything else that has hit the market. ObiiGO is expanding in Houston and Phoenix, with other cities in the pipeline later this year. Shop owners will be able to sign up at www.obiigo.com

ObiiGO brings the customer and independent repair facility together in unison to work together for best pricing on the best repairs. Through ObiiGO’s OBDII plug-in the consumer can punch in the error codes and get the diagnostic read on the check engine light. From there the consumer can send off “bid requests” to participating repair and oil lube centers”. Within 30 minutes the consumer will receive the bids based on time and value allowing the consumer to pick which bid satisfies not only their wallet but, their schedule.
