Beating expectations against the odds.
South Korean tech giant Samsung Electronics performed well better than analysts were forecasting
in the first three months of 2020. The relatively healthy returns coming despite
the coronavirus pandemic that’s wreaking havoc on the global economy.
Eum Ji-young has more. Samsung Electronics has reported better-than-expected
first quarter profits amid the COVID-19 outbreak. Samsung Electronics said in its earnings guidance
on Tuesday that its operating profit for the first three months of this year likely went
up 2-point-7 percent from a year ago,… slightly beating expectations.
As one of the first major tech names to report earnings amid the coronavirus pandemic,…
the company said it expects 5-point-2 billion U.S. dollars in operating profit for the first
quarter of this year,… up from the 5-billion it posted for the same period last year.
The company expects its consolidated sales to be 45-billion dollars, up almost 5 percent
on-year. But both sales and profits are down when compared
to the previous quarter. Operating profit is expected to be down 10-point-6
percent compared to the previous quarter, and consolidated sales is expected to see
an 8-point-1 percent on-quarter drop. This comes amid a slump in sales of smartphones
and home appliances. Analysts say the company’s semiconductor business
might have helped the firm stay in the black during the pandemic,… as data centers fueled
a recovery in memory chip markets,… one of Samsung’s main profit centers.
South Korean businesses in general are not faring so well. The combined operating profit
of companies listed on the benchmark KOSPI is projected to have slumped nearly 17-percent
on-year in the first quarter. Financial data provider FnGuide says the combined
operating profit of 141 firms is set to be around 13-point-7 billon U.S. dollars,…
down from 16-and-a-half billion for the same period last year.

After a long day at work, we love to relax in front of the TV, lean
back and let the broadcast wash over us. No time to be bothered with choosing a video
on Netflix or YouTube. Yet, in the world of video streaming, traditional TV seems outdated. TV networks and broadcasters exploit their
position as middlemen. Every consumer gets the same non-personalized content while paying exuberant
subscription fees. Advertisers spend billions with no transparency
over who receives their messages and independent content providers have no chance
to make it to the Big Screen. It is time for a change! Enter TV-TWO. TV-TWO is an application for connected
TVs that blends broadcast with a personalized video stream. While watching
television, TV-TWO can be open with one click. The service is free, but it gets better! Users are rewarded for
watching TV. This is done with the help of the Ethereum
Blockchain. We introduce the Token for Television – TTV An ERC-20 token used to administer the exchanged
value between consumers advertisers and content providers. It functions as currency
and helps to distribute the 180-billion-dollar honeypot of TV networks
in a new and decentralized television ecosystem. To ensure a great viewing experience advertisers and content providers submit high-quality
videos. A supervised learning algorithm selects the best clips for each
individual and populates an infinite stream Users are in full control. They can pause, fast forward or skip videos
and choose the number of sponsored messages. In the new ecosystem advertisers use TTV to promote their videos.
The tokens are transferred to the users watching, giving advertisers a more direct and transparent
consumer relationship than with any form of digital advertising. Users pass a share of their tokens to the
organic content providers and are free to hold the remaining
part or exchange it for other currencies. Since no coins will be issued after the crowdsale
and each token has the reserved right to show ads to a fixed portion of the TV-TWO user base each additional consumer
the value of the token. Let’s reshape TV as we know!
As you can easily see: people like to eat and drink as exotic and fresh as possible. Let us listen today to the hymn of praise of refrigeration logistics: The KRONE Cool Liner with the active support of the KRONE Isowall a transverse partition wall that can be positioned anywhere on the refrigerated trailer. What does this partition wall look like? What is their benefit? And how is it operated? About 80 % of all temperature-controlled transports are single-temp transports. They requires only one temperature range. For example a complete load of frozen pizza. But now the pizzas are to be distributed to three branches and it doesn´t make sense if the first nine pallets have been unloaded at branch 1 to continue supplying the complete freight space with minus temperatures. This would result in a warning from Greta Thunberg. So we minimize the freight space to be cooled with the help of the KRONE Isowall. The Isowall is only 140 millimetres high and is held by a magnet on the sliding carriage. With an inclination of about 45 degrees the wall is pushed to the desired position then positioned vertically and locked. But please do not use the Isowall as an element of rear load securing. It is not designed for this purpose. The Isowall is not a multiwall. Arriving at branch 2 the Isowall is first unlocked and then please pull only one of the two handles and press against the wall with the other hand. Then opening is completely problem-free and almost without effort. And when the KRONE Isowall is used in a multi-temp transport it has even more capabilities. More on this later in a separate movie on KRONE TV.
The Corona disease Covid-19 has similiarities with the well-known flu. Both are respiratory illnesses that vary between a symtpom-free and a very severe course of disease. Both illnesses are caused by viruses. The flu by Influenza viruses, Covid-19 by Corona virus Sars-Cov2. In Germany three people have died from Covid-19, the flu has killed 202 in the actual season. Patients show similar symptoms such as fever, coughing, throat – and muscle ache. Those differ very much from patient to patient though. Both illnesses are spread via droplet infection, oftentimes via coughing, sneezing or by hand and require the same prevention measures, such as hand hygiene and keeping space to infected persons. But there are differences, like in the spreading of the diseases. The flu seems to be less contaigious than Covid-19. While the seasonal flu is spread from one person to 1,3 others on average, Covid-19 contaminates 2-4 persons. They also differ in their incubation time, meaning the time span between infection and disease outbreak. This time span is shorter with the flu, usually approximately three days. For Covid-19 that is still unsure.
It could be five days; it ould be thwo weekis or more. Depending on the particular virus, the flu is especially dangerous for children, pregnant women, elderly people or those with a weak immune system. For the new Corona Virus, pregnant women and children aren’t high risk groups, experts say. And: According to the current state of knowledge, a severe or fatal course of disease is more likely with Covid-19 than with the flu.
