Think Tank Photo Launches Newest MindShift Rotation Backpack Series

gbafNews28

Building on the success and popularity of their MindShift Rotation180 Backpack series, Think Tank Photo announces the launch of the next generation of Rotation Backpacks, available exclusively on Kickstarter. Fully funded in under 4 hours, the Rotation Backpack Series Kickstarter campaign is already a huge success.

Rotation180 technology is a patented solution that enables photographers to quickly access their camera, while on the move or in precarious situations, without taking off the backpack. The backpack incorporates a rotating belt pack that houses essential camera gear, including a DSLR or Mirrorless body, several lenses and a variety of accessories. For this latest generation of backpacks, Think Tank designers enhanced the original Rotation180 technology by integrating a magnetic closure on the belt pack lid, enabling camera access from stowed to shooting position in less than 3 seconds.

Nature and travel photographers need quick access to their gear in any situation. They also want to carry heavy gear with the comfort of a backpack. The MindShift Rotation Backpack Series is the only solution that combines the comfort of a technical backpack with immediate access to cameras and more.

Rotation technology helps you keep up your creative momentum, said Doug Murdoch, No need to stop, take off the backpack and set it down in the dirt, snow or mud to access your camera just to get The Shot, he explains. Simply rotate the integrated belt pack to the front of your body and your camera is at your fingertips. Snap the shot, slide the belt pack back in, and youre on your way!

The MindShift Rotation Backpack Series is available in three sizes ranging from 22, 34 and 50+ liters of capacity. Each backpack includes a camera belt pack, a 10-point adjustable harness system and ample room for personal gear. Designed specifically for Adventure Photographers, the backpack series can be adapted to carry a tripod, hydration reservoir, ice/mountain axe, trekking poles and extra camera gear using a MindShift Stash Master photo cube (sold separately).

Adventure Photographers also need a backpack that will stand up to the rigors of outdoor activity, including rugged terrain, inclement weather and the need for ample personal gear. Using advanced construction techniques gained from 15-years of experience manufacturing camera bags, and using rugged materials coated with water resistant polyurethane, the MindShift Rotation Backpack Series will stand up to any adventure. Seam-sealed rain covers for both backpack and belt pack are available separately and are designed to work with the rotating system.

TIWW X CE Taiwan Debut on 9/24 in Taipei to Create New Green Gold Value

gbafNews28

TAIPEI, TAIWAN – Media OutReach – 24 September 2020 – Organized by Taiwan External Trade Development Council (TAITRA), the Taiwan International Water Week (TIWW 2020) and Circular Economy (CE Taiwan 2020) start their physical exhibition on September 24 in Taipei. Although impacted by the COVID-19, this joint trade show is widely supported by all walks of life, as shown by the participation of a number of indicator units from the industries, the governments, the academia, and the research institutes, such as the Industrial Development Bureau of the Ministry of Economic Affairs, the Industrial Technology Research Institute (ITRI), GSD Technologies, FineTek, Advantech, JU-TIAN Cleantech, and SHUI‑MU International. As this joint trade show is expected to create the most business opportunities and a new green-gold value in the post-COVID-19 era, it is considered this year’s most important professional industry exhibition for water resources and circular economy.

 

As the pandemic has been accelerating the digital transformation of global industries, TAITRA, as the organizer of the trade show, has also actively launched a number of digital services to help companies expand their global trade business opportunities. For instance, the “Water Week Middle East Business Opportunity Day”, which is the first to debut, connects exhibitors and Middle East buyers by the use of cloud video conferencing services. Meanwhile, the online and offline activities during this period include the online exhibition halls, the one-on-one purchasing video conferences, the global government procurement meetings, the W Stage popular product launches, and the “TIWW X CE Taiwan ON AIR” live show. The last one is considered this year’s most watched new project, as it enables those buyers who cannot visit the exhibition venues in person to view the show as if they are on the scene. The video will be aired at the Taiwan Trade Shows Digital Channel (TTS D’Channel) at 11 a.m. and 5 p.m. on September 25. So, stay tuned and remember to watch.

 

In response to the Taiwan government’s active promotion of forward-looking plans for the construction of water environment, TIWW takes the sustainable use of water resources as the main theme, under which data analysis, cloud control and other smart water technologies are utilized and various kinds of pumps, water quality monitors and waste and sewage treatment solutions (all of which are energy-saving, power-saving, and environment-friendly) are exhibited. At the same time, under the”5+2 Industrial Innovation Plan,”the industries will transform themselves from a linear economy of “mining, manufacturing, use, and disposal” to a circular economy with sustainable resources. As such, CE Taiwan wishes to guide enterprises to achieve sustainable development through the ESG (Environmental, Social, Corporate Governance) and 3R (reduce, reuse, recycle) strategies, so that they can not only present the cross-industry application of circular economy, the innovative business model, and the technological products featuring green energy and environmental protection, but also combine the two hot topics in the green industry to showcase the trend of generations of energy intelligence, energy saving, and innovation.

 

“Taiwan International Water Week and Circular Economy Taiwan 2020 ” will be held from 9:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. (the closing time on the last day being 5:00 p.m.) at Taipei World Trade Center Hall 1 during the period between September 24 (Thu.) and 26 (Sat.).

‘The African Dream: The Man With the Audacity to Build the New Africa’ – A Documentary Premiere to Inspire a Generation of Africans and the Black Youth

gbafNews28

GHANA, West Africa, Sept. 24, 2020 /PRNewswire/ — The new docufilm "The African Dream: The Man with the Audacity to Build the New Africa" is scheduled to premiere Oct. 10, 2020, with a Global Watch Party on YouTube. The docufilm explores the impact Freedom Jacob Caesar, the visionaire behind this project, has made both as a pioneering business leader and a socially aware philanthropist. 

"The African Dream" chronicles the hopes of an entire continent and showcases the exemplary story of a great son of the land. It captures Freedom Jacob Caesar (FJC), the Neo Pan-Africanist alter ego of Nana Kwame Bediako, a wealthy, African visionary, an industrialist and nation builder who has embarked upon an ordained mission of building a united New Africa, bridging it to the rest of the world. FJC is personified as a spirit, a myth and a unique African ancestral identity. It has a unique plot twist that also showcases the tangible works of Nana Kwame Bediako who has single-handedly redefined the skylines of Ghana and built an extensive portfolio of business successes.

He provides a story of hope and inspiration to empower a new generation of Black and young Africans throughout the diaspora by sharing his remarkable entrepreneurial journey and his vision for leadership in transforming the new Africa. At the core of the docufilm is Freedom Jacob Caesar’s template for wealth creation and his visionary principles of maximizing the utilization of land and property, from a minuscule-scale development to a transformation of the region’s skyline with nearly 600 residential and iconic commercial properties covering over 2,000 acres of land. Freedom’s vision for the future of Africa is brought to life with Petronia City, his planned development of West Africa’s first large-scale industrial and manufacturing smart city to bring energy and power to a continent that will boast an Industrial Park, Africa’s "Silicon Valley" Technology Hub and an Energy City.

Witnessing the devastating impact of the coronavirus pandemic made it apparent to Freedom how much people needed hope. "This period was also the first in modern times that Africa realized we would have to save ourselves. Our vision of Africa becoming a global giant can only be attained if Africans begin to provide for each other. It was important that I, Freedom, began to share my story with regard to creating wealth on the continent as well as the work I have been doing with The Freedom Movement," FJC says.

He returned to his homeland of Ghana from the U.K. nearly 20 years ago and began silently building in the background for almost two decades what has now become The Kwarleyz Group. The Kwarleyz Group is a diversified group of companies involved in real estate development and financial investments in West Africa. 

Freedom states that "I have accepted the spiritual calling to embody the ambition and lineage of some of the greatest black men in history such as Haile Selassie, Kwame Nkrumah, Nelson Mandela, Martin Luther King, Jr., and Malcolm X. Mansa Musa, the wealthiest king in ancient history, awakened my attributes of vision and the power of manifestation that has been needed to transform Africa for the past five centuries." Freedom’s philanthropy work, entrepreneurial prowess, and social activism are boldly emerging as a courageous voice of African solidarity. "An inspiration for what is possible," says Caesar, the alter ego of Nana Kwame Bediako.
