One Love from Bob Marley has been remade for corporate product marketing, with Oakley releasing a music video that centres around a dozen well-known athletes. Celeste initially sang this remake at the 2020 British Rising Star Awards, meant to be a single live performance in honour of Bob Marley & how he’d want to save our modern world. That’s all changed with the confirmation that Oakley, a “High-Performance Sunglasses Brand” has used the remade version of One Love in their latest product marketing campaign.
The music video is officially designated to celebrate the individual relationships of adversity. However, Oakley’s products are littered around this music video. This extends to their brand logo & indicates towards a marketing campaign concealed behind the social movements regarding race & equality.
Oakley hasn’t experienced any fallout to their music video, masking their well-thought & organized marketing campaign in an unoffensive manner. Ben Gross stands as Oakley’s “Global Director of Marketing”, and he issued a formal statement regarding their music video. He’s clarified that in our fragile world, sports can have the power to create emotion & that their goal with this video is to impact communities with positive Love of professional sports.
Pre-Planned Before the Pandemic
Ben Gross making these statements show the true meaning behind Oakley’s new marketing. Oakley hadn’t hidden the fact that this music video was commissioned before COVID-19 became an international pandemic. It was meant to release in correlation with the NBA Championships & 2020 Tokyo Summer Olympics. Filming took place before the pandemic as well, forcing Oakley to release the video or take a financial loss. Peter Ammentorp Lund from Parent-Company AKQA evoked that their message is brighter than ever.
The message behind this video is positive & evokes positive memories from times when North Americans engaged with professional sports. Oakley commissioning & filming this music video in late 2019 was ominous, with shooting ending a day before COVID-19 was declared an international pandemic. The family of Bob Marley have praised Oakley for their positive message behind sports, remarking that their father loved football & knew it brought joy into the lives of billions worldwide.
The President of the United States if facing a never-ending battle with social media corporations like Facebook & Twitter. This follows after Donald Trump began targeting these companies through Congresses House of Representatives. What has come afterwards is an onslaught of removed posts from President Trump, showing that Facebook & Twitter are fighting back.
The most recent post removed by Facebook from President Donald Trump was false information regarding COVID-19. The post centred around an interview that Trump gave on August 5th with Fox News, where he indicated that a specific area of America saw its population immune from COVID-19. Nowhere worldwide is there anyone immune from COVID-19. Facebook noted that the post violated core policies regarding misinformation and that it won’t be tolerated on any level.
Another post from President Trump on Facebook suggested that children were immune from COVID-19 & couldn’t pass it on to adults. That is inaccurate scientific information that was listed to assist Trump in his explanation for reopening schools, something most have considered the most horrific act of POTUS’s 4-Year Reign.
Facebook wasn’t the exclusive platform to terminate President Trump’s post, with Twitter also announcing that the Fox News Interview regarding children being immune & an unknown sector of America maintaining immunity was forced into removal. Twitter’s aspect of removing this post directly affected Donald Trump, making POTOS delete the post before being permitted to use the platform again. This means that Twitter forced the President of America to recognize his failures for a short moment.
President Donald Trump & his Administration compiled after Twitter released a formal statement regarding this order. Most were expecting Donald Trump to target Twitter’s CEO in the following post, which was surprisingly avoided by POTUS. However, social media analysts anticipate that Jack Dorsey will be targeted next by Congress for his actions.
Why is Trump Attacking Social Media Companies?
The President of the United States has forced Congress into eliminating data collection capabilities for social media platforms like TikTok, Facebook, Instagram, and Twitter. That’s because Donald Trump wants American Intelligence Agencies to have full Reign over data collection, similar to the Chinese Communist Party. It’s the standard hypocrisy associated with Trump.
The United States, the United Kingdom, and Spain will shortly become connected by an enhanced undersea network cable. It’ll be a significant upgrade from the existing lines that’ve been in use for decades, with this undersea network cable being privately funded & owned by Google. Their announcement confirmed that new technologies are being incorporated to account for future innovations with internet & data speeds. Google confirmed that completion of their latest network cable project will be 2020.
Google announcing an enhanced undersea data line is substantial for future communication infrastructures, with these cables maintaining 98% of the world’s data under Google estimates. Typically, data lines are manufactured by communication firms. Multiple companies collect resources & then charge largescale corporations a premium to access these network cables. Google avoids these expansive costs by developing exclusive data lines, effectively stealing these communication firm’s business strategy.
Details regarding which network hubs these network cables will connect to weren’t provided. However, Google clarified that the official name of its latest data line is “Grace Hopper”. It’s named after a Naval Admiral & American Computer Scientist, with this woman effective in advancing military campaigns while innovating new technologies.
Telecoms Analysts John Delaney from IDC clarified the premise behind Google’s network cable strategy. He’d emphasize that transatlantic bandwidth is increasing at substantial amounts, forcing delays in speed for numerous internet providers. That’s because available transatlantic bandwidth becomes used at greater volumes with growing populations in Europe & North America. John Delaney clarified that Google creating this network cable will create optimal conditions for speed, applying primarily to mobile bandwidths.
It’s not surprising that Google have elected to manufacture an upgraded underwater network cable, with the previous 750+ thousand miles of cable having primarily run their lifespans. Lifespans of underwater data lines are limited by heavy currents, earthquakes, volcanic activity, and marine wildlife. Their lifespan typically sustains 25 years. Most of these cables have operated for more than three decades & corrosion is beginning to cause multiple maintenance issues. Developing upgraded network cables that maintain sophisticated technologies could prolong these underwater lines lifespans.
The European Commission has found themselves defeated by Apple Incorporated, which follows after a lawsuit that started four years ago. The European Commission claimed that €13 billion in taxes was owed to the Irish Government, filing their lawsuit with the 2nd Highest Court in Europe. The basis of their claim was dependent on proving that Apple obtained “Illegal State Aid” to limit taxes through favourable agreements. European Commission Lawyers emphasized that Apple had stolen from Irish civilians for two decades.
Their claims provoked the Irish Government & Courts, with parliament clarifying that taxes wouldn’t be accepted if ruled in favour of the European Commission. It’s not the 1st time that EC Lawyers have attacked largescale corporations in Ireland, which maintains the national lowest average for business taxes. It’s seen companies like Google & Facebook set up their European headquarters in Ireland.
CNN Business interviewed an Apple Spokesperson over their victory in Europe’s 2nd Highest Court System. Immediate sentiments remarked that they’re pleased with the outcome, that the European Commission wasn’t concerned about how much taxes Apple pays. But that their concerned derived from which nations the fees were being distributed to government associations.
Apple’s Public Statements
Statements from this Spokesperson continued, indicating that Apple Incorporated pays more taxes than any other largescale corporation. It’s estimated that their corporate income taxes ranged around €100 billion since 2010. CITs are one of the multiple tax brackets that Apple operates in, meaning their payments to various international governments exceed the €100 billion estimate.
The Chief Executive Officer of Apple, Tim Cook, clarified that the European Commission was targeting his corporation. Filed claims issued by the EC were unwarranted & unjustified of any corporate laws. It should be explained that Ireland officially supported the decision of their courts and testified that they’d fight again is brought to Europe’s 1st Highest Judicial System. Analysts suspect the European Commission of having already begun the process to appeal the recent decision.
Appealing Europe’s 2nd Highest Court’s decision could prove destructive for the European Commission. Their word is typically final with matters of this level, with the 1st Highest Court System in Europe focusing on government-based cases. Rejection of their appeal could become a reality & finalize Apple’s position in Ireland without concerns for retribution.
Personnel working with the Amazon Company have begun a lawsuit against their employer. This follows after tensions between the two parties have grown in recent years, with reports indicating that employed personnel are terminated for requiring bathroom usage & calling in sick a single time. When New York City became the epicentre of COVID-19, Amazon’s warehouse in that jurisdiction didn’t enforce social distancing standards & terminated employees for remaining home during the pandemic. Amazon has continually denied claims regarding their safety policies, even with photographic & video graphic evidence proving employee complaints are genuine.
Amazon doesn’t maintain a union, meaning their employees aren’t provided job protection. It’s often reported that warehouse employees are often treated similarly to labour slaved—demands with their court claim request that job security is formally agreed upon in writing by both parties. Orders also request that workforces be provided ample time to wash their hands, change facemasks, use the lavatory, and stay home without concern of termination during a warehouse outbreak of coronavirus.
Media personnel with Amazon claim that COVID-19 Policies were created in March 2020, with employed workforces expected to follow the updated code of conduct. Derrick Palmer from Amazon’s NYC Warehouse indicated that nobody was provided with a formal letter or email regarding the change of policy. Employees proved that Amazon hadn’t clarified the newly introduced COVID-19 policies by showing internal documents.
Amazon didn’t provide a company-wide statement after employees proved they’d not been informed of updated policies. Amazon also refused to comment on the death of an NYC warehouse employee that caught COVID-19 while on the job. He’d be terminated for informing the media. Afterwards, an influx of employed personnel was removed from the facility after failing to reach productivity quota.
Jeff Bezos & Amazon Executives have often overworked their employees during holiday seasons. Regularly these individuals walk an average of fifteen miles per day in the Amazon Warehouse, with that nearly being doubled during the holidays. The same doubling rate has been seen during COVID-19. Making employees meet to increase their standard productivity quota while meeting personal safety standards associated with the pandemic is impossible.
Engaged workforces throughout America with the Amazon Company have been reported passing out from exhaustion & lack of fluids. That’s because they’re having to wear masks while moving at an average walking pace of 30mph for eight to ten hours per day. That’s nearly impossible for the human body to accomplish five-days per week.
The Hong Kong region is facing significant changes to their ecosystem, with the Chinese Government working with local politicians to enact a new security law. This legislation was approved over the July 3rd weekend, turning Hong Kong from a democracy into a communist regime. It’s prompted significant concern amongst the international community, with Hong Kong holding formidable connections in the financial & retail industries.
Labelled a Draconian Security Law, those fined under the stipulated provisions will face significant odds against them. Implemented requirements included Crimes of Terrorism, Subversion, Collusion, and Secession with Chinese/Hong Kong forces punishable by a life sentence. Chinese Life Sentences are sustained until the day that convict dies; it doesn’t apply for twenty-five years as seen in democratic nations.
What is considered terrorism by the Chinese Communist Party is concerning, with the damaging of public facilities & transportation services being deemed a terrorist act. Ensuring that criminals are prosecuted for demanding freedom in their nation, Beijing is building a Hong Kong Security Headquarters. Those found guilty will be moved to mainland China, indited by a Chinese Judge, and sent to prison or a labour camp. Either or are deadly.
International Corporations Opposing China
Companies worldwide have promised to stop operations in the Hong Kong region, which is consistent with their policies against China. Social media services like Twitter & Telegram have vowed to shut down their servers, with corporations like Facebook stating they’ll oblige data requests from the Chinese Government. This means there’s the potential for North American & European Facebook User Data to be collected by Chinese Government Officials. However, Users would’ve had to engage with someone on the platform in Hong Kong to meet the factors associated with Chinese data requests.
Then there is the widely used & popular social media application known as TikTok. The Chinese-owned corporation of ByteDance manages this teenage-themed application. They’re claiming that their Hong Kong Servers & operations of TikTok will be terminated effective immediately. However, Chinese companies refusing to abide by the new security laws implemented by the CCP would allow for these sentiments to become a reality. TikTok Executives would face identical punishments if found unwilling to comply with CCP Data Requests. Subsequently, North American & European Governments are considering banning TikTok from their borders. This comes as multiple nations fight against the Chinese Communist Party & their efforts for global control.
Gamers in America, Europe, Britain, and Canada are expressing their concerns to publishers worldwide. This follows after it was announced that upcoming games for the PS5 and XSX would cost an additional £5.00 over the standard prices of titles today. 2K Publishers confirmed prolonged speculation of the increase in cost their 2021 Installment of NBA 2K. Neither Sony nor Microsoft has been available to confirm that all games for Triple-A Titles will cost £5.00 more last generation.
Analysts in this space indicated that it’s commonplace for new hardware to have increased costs, with development processes requiring higher budgets. This analyst then reminded consumers that COVID-19 had enforced significant setbacks onto all studios that developer video games, meaning an increase in cost could assist with those losses. Complex factors arising from the fallout of COVID-19 will enforce fluctuations on the scale of pricing. This analyst then finished his sentiments by clarifying that Microsoft & Sony don’t make more than £50.00 of the sale of their hardware systems. 95% of their yearly profits are earned from the sales margins with video games, and downloadable content. When accounting for these attributes, it’s easy to comprehend why an adjustment of the price is coming.
Microsoft’s Smart Delivery System
2K Publishers is infamous for pre-emptily recommending the margin of costs for new titles, with either their games of Electronic Arts being the 1st to release on modern consoles. The fifth generation of consoles could alter this standard business practice, with Microsoft announcing their “Smart Delivery System”. Consumers subscribing to this service would purchase a single game & have access to it across any Xbox Series X worldwide. It’d even extend towards personal computers. Analysts suspect that Microsoft’s model will become more popular than 2K Publishers, especially after the economic recessions that’ll follow for years after the COVID-19 pandemic has concluded.
Those wanting to purchase NBA 2K21 must wait until the PlayStation 5 & Xbox Series X is released this Holiday Season. It’ll cost consumers more than $600.00 to experience this realistic version of professional basketball. That’s because upcoming consoles will cost $500.00, with the additional price tag of $70.00 for NBA2K21. When accounting for the associated taxes based on state borders, it’ll be hard to locate costs lower than $600.00 for this combined package.
The Apple Company provided its loyal consumers with an updated outlook into their 2020-21 software updates. The Worldwide Developers Keynote Conference – 2020 Edition, unfolded over June 22nd. Fans of Apple products were shown the 14th edition of iOS for the iPhone and iPad, with notable features being introduced. Widgets similar to Android are being added & enhancements to the grouped applications feature are coming.
What excited fans more than these minor feature upgrades was an announcement on WatchOS7. Features that’ve been requested by Apple enthusiasts from the beginning of Apple Watches have finally been added after seven software generations. This included an updated version of the Apple Activity App, which has been rebranded to “Apple Fitness”. The more compelling feature added to WatchOS7 is Sleep Tracking, allowing consumers to determine how many hours they’re obtaining while resting for the night. Detailed accounts on their sleep cycle are provided, showing users when they slept deeply & when they were almost awake.
Sleep tracking has been supported with Android Watches since their first software iteration. It’s been requested by Apple Loyalists because medical physicians & experts can better determine what’s needed for their patient to recover from sleep-related problems. It also informs Apple Watch owners when Sleep Apnea is possibility inflicting their nightly routine. Tim Cook is infamous for not listening to requests from consumers, often taking years to implement outdated features. WWDC2020 was an example that Tim Cook hasn’t changed his mindset, as all features introduced for their 2020-21 software lineup have been available for 10+ years with Android.
Sleep Soundly with Apple
Another feature praised by Apple supporters is the “Wind Down Mode”, which works similarly to “Do Not Disturb”. Notifications will be terminated while Apple users sleep, meditation sounds curated by the Apple Music Team will begin to play for two hours & the Apple Watch will focus on calming users into deep periods of sleep. Once the watch recognizes that owners have fallen asleep, tracking of their sleeping patterns will immediately begin. It should be mentioned that maintaining this feature throughout an entire night requires a full battery. This creates significant limitations in how the “Wind Down Mode” can be approached.
Donald Trump has received significant backlash for his Re-Election Campaign Advertisements on Facebook. These advertisements were used by Nazi Germany, with PR Representatives from this social media giant noting that the “Red Triangle” was used to label their opponents as communists. It was a standard tactic used by Adolf Hitler to make Nazi Soldiers believe they weren’t fighting under a communist regime, which they were.
The Trump Campaign Team was informed by Facebook that their advertisement had been removed & wouldn’t be permitted on their social media platform. Representatives for Donald Trump demanded that their President was targeting ANTIFA, an activist group with the far left. When routing where this advertisement originated on the social media platform, the Mike Pence and Donald Trump Pages are revealed. The President and his VP kept this advertisement running for 24 hours, where it became viral & was seen by 500+ thousand civilians in America.
When questioned on their reasoning for removing this advertisement, Facebook mentioned that their support doesn’t extend towards hateful organizations or the groups that represent them. It was clarified that Facebook will always terminate endorsements of racist nature & ignorant ideologies.
The President of the United States used Tim Murtaugh to clarify his excuses towards this symbol selection. The Trump Campaign Representative mentioned that the Inverted Red Triangle is commonly used with ANTIFA, which is why the video advertisement showed this video. Trump’s Rep than placed blame towards Facebook & mentioned that their Red Triangle Emoji is still used today. When looking for that symbol on American servers of Facebook, it cannot be found.
Most have forgotten that Donald Trump started a personal war with ANTIFA, claiming that this group started the initial George Floyd Riots. Donald Trump has put a significant level of blame regarding these violent protests onto ANTIFA, claiming the group is a Domestic Terrorist Organization. Trump has made it his goal to stop this group from proceeding in their operations. It should be mentioned that ANTIFA works against Neo-Nazis, Supremacists, Fascism, and Racism. The fact that Trump is working to destroy this group shows the President supported those horrendous movements.
The Honda Company confirmed on June 10th that they’d experienced an Ekans Ransomware Attack, which has subsequently impacted their international operations. Based through cybernetic malware that ping from one location to another, once Ekans has infected a system, it’ll take over within 24 Hours. Honda forcibly confirmed that accessing their computer servers isn’t possible, with this extending to their internal email systems, and manufacturing networks. It’s prompted a notable impact onto the manufacturing facilities located outside Japan. Representatives then mentioned that support staff are working diligently to minimalize the international implications, with full functionality returning by the latest of June 15th. Personnel under the Sales Department are unable to adhere to retailer obligations until a solution is obtained.
Manufacturing on Sedans, SUVS, Trucks, Motorcycles, Lawn Mowers and Generators have been affected by the Ekans Ransomware. Representatives didn’t confirm if the unnamed attackers have requested funds to return services to the Honda Company. It’s speculated that Honda is employing their support team before engaging in delegations with a cybernetic terrorist. Corporations infected with the Ekans Ransomware have previously paid millions to reobtain their operations, with Honda most likely not willing to go down this road.
Details regarding the level of infection from Ekans wasn’t detailed. However, multiple factories with Honda have postponed operations until the 15th. This includes their Sweden, North America, Japan, Turkey, and Italy Manufacturing Facilities. Honda 1st remarked that employed personnel were informed to remain home for one day, with that period increasing to several. This guarantees that the Ekans Ransomware has infected all aspects of the Honda Company’s internal operations.
Cyber Security Experts worldwide have offered to provide the Honda Company with their insight. Refusal from representatives is often the reaction given to these individuals. Experts were questioned on why they’ve been refused Consultant Status, with it being remarked that Honda doesn’t want inside sources that aren’t permanent employees engaging with their systems. This could result in delayed solutions for their Ekans Ransomware Attack. Every day that Honda doesn’t solve this attack means another day that Customer Information can be stolen. Representatives claim that information hacks aren’t possible under their software. However, this isn’t true when someone else has control of your internal operating system.
