Country's Most-Awarded Laundry Manufacturer** Introduces New Line of Smart Front-Load and Top-Load Washers with Advanced Cleaning
ENGLEWOOD CLIFFS, N.J., April 15, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- On National Laundry Day, LG Electronics USA is rolling out its new line of smart, Wi-Fi-enabled front-load and top-load washing machines featuring its most advanced TurboWash™ technologies yet – all designed to simplify laundry day with improved cleaning performance, gentle fabric care, energy efficiency and time savings.
"As the most-awarded laundry brand in customer satisfaction, reliability and performance, LG delivers washers and dryers U.S. consumers can rely on to help make life easier. And our new TurboWash technology offers them the best new tools on the market to tackle life's messy moments with confidence," said David VanderWaal, senior vice president of marketing, LG Electronics USA.
TurboWash360°: The next evolution of front-load cleaning technology
LG TurboWash360° technology powers through large loads in less time with the same great washing performance consumers can count on from LG. It uses five powerful jets with variable sprays to surround clothes from multiple angles so detergent can penetrate deep into fabrics for a complete clean – even for big loads – in under 30 minutes.*
LG TurboWash360° is available in the new WM3900 4.5-cubic-foot front-load washer with steam that penetrates fabrics to virtually eliminate dirt and odors and reduce common household allergens. It is certified asthma & allergy friendly®by the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) and offered in white ($1,099) and the new Black Steel ($1,199)finish.
LG's available line of smart, Wi-Fi-enabled front-load washers are compatible with the LG SideKick™ pedestal washer that can wash small loads at the same time or independently.
TurboWash3D and TurboDrum: Top-load classic style meets next-level cleaning
The new LG TurboWash3D™ and TurboDrum™ technologies – available in the WT7300 and the soon-to-launch WT7800 and WT7900 washers – combine the complete cleaning and the gentle care clothes deserve.
LG TurboWash3D's new powerful jet spray combines with the TurboDrum tub and motor that rotate independently and in opposite directions – simulating an agitator effect without the wear and tear that comes with it. This unprecedented technology creates a powerful water flow that moves garments throughout the cycle for enhanced washing performance. The WT7900 also features steam to reduce common household allergens by more than 95 percent and is certified asthma & allergy friendly by AAFA.
LG's line of smart, Wi-Fi-enabled top-load washers with TurboWash3D and TurboDrum technology include these ENERGY STAR certified ultra-large capacity models:
LG front- and top-load washers offer smart connectivity to make laundry day easy. Consumers can use the LG SmartThinQ® mobile app to start the laundry while out shopping, check remaining cycle times or get smartphone notifications when clothes are clean. They can also operate the washer via voice commands with Amazon Alexa and the Google Assistant for the ultimate in simplicity. With Amazon Dash Replenishment, they won't run out of detergent because LG washers track usage and can automatically reorder supplies right to their door.
In addition to their advanced performance, LG's new front- and top-load washers featuring the advanced TurboWash technology are all ENERGY STAR certified and use less energy and water. Production is ramping up at LG's new million-square-foot plant in Clarksville, Tenn., believed to be the most advanced washing machine factory on the planet.

- Collins Aerospace providing industry-leading compact, lightweight life support system components
- Enables NASA to send astronauts to and from low-Earth orbit destinations, including the International Space Station
- First test flights of the Boeing (CST)-100 Starliner to the International Space Station targeted for 2019
CEDAR RAPIDS, Iowa, April 8, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Collins Aerospace Systems, a unit of United Technologies Corp. (NYSE: UTX)., is playing a crucial role in making commercial human spaceflight possible on the Boeing Crew Space Transportation (CST)-100 Starliner by providing major components of the Environmental Control and Life Support Subsystem (ECLSS). The ECLSS initially will be part of a Starliner flight test without a crew. Following the successful completion of the flight test, the first crewed flight is targeted for 2019.
Collins Aerospace provides an Earth-like atmosphere for the astronauts as they travel in the Starliner. Components of the ECLSS include the air revitalization and pressure control systems made up of cabin fans, heat exchangers, carbon dioxide removal, trace contaminant control, valves, regulators and smoke detection. Also included is an active thermal control system that maintains the cabin at optimal temperatures as the vehicle is subjected to the extreme temperatures of space. All of the components are compact and lightweight to meet the unique requirements of the spacecraft.
"This builds upon our more than 50 years of supplying crucial life support systems in space, and we're proud to be a part of the Boeing team as they ready the Starliner to provide NASA with a safe and reliable method of transportation for astronauts for years to come," said Gail Baker, vice president, ISR and Space Solutions for Collins Aerospace.
The Starliner, developed as part of NASA's Commercial Crew Program, will enable NASA to send astronauts safely and reliably to and from the ISS. Since the retirement of the Space Shuttle in 2011, NASA has had to rely on foreign partners for transportation to space.

Lowe's helping FedEx to address its home improvement DIY and pro customer needs with FedEx SameDay Bot
MOORESVILLE, N.C., April 3, 2019 /HalcyonTV/ -- Imagine the home improvement professional who is mid-project and breaks a drill bit. Or the DIYer who finds herself short a gallon of paint to complete a bedroom touchup. Instead of heading out the door to the neighborhood Lowe's, they grab a phone or laptop and order online – then go right back to work until a robot rolls up to their location with that critical item, the very same day.
Lowe's is helping FedEx understand Lowe's customers' needs in an effort to bring those visions to life with same-day delivery via the FedEx SameDay Bot.
FedEx is developing this technology to provide safe, efficient and environmentally friendly delivery in localized areas. The FedEx SameDay Bot will rely on pedestrian-safe technology to navigate the path to its destination.
"We're focused on serving our customers where, when and how they want to be served, and smooth, reliable, timely delivery is critical," said Don Frieson, Lowe's executive vice president of supply chain. "The convenience and capability the FedEx SameDay Bot is being designed to offer has the potential to simplify and speed distribution through same-day delivery from your neighborhood Lowe's. We look forward to exploring possibilities to enhance the service we provide our customers through this innovation – and what this kind of support can mean for our associates."
The Bot is being developed to operate on sidewalks and along roadsides, remain stable and avoid obstacles, while negotiating curbs, unpaved surfaces and tight turns. Gyroscopic technology helps keep cargo level and still. And while that agility can simplify access to a busy construction site, same-day, on-site delivery's greatest value might be allowing contractors to continue working without costly interruptions and delays.
"Consider pros who could save time and money by never leaving the job site for the critical tools and supplies they need from Lowe's," Frieson said. "Rising labor wages cost businesses every time a worker leaves to pick up supplies. Then consider the lost productivity from work that remained untouched while they are gone, and we believe professionals will quickly realize the savings of job site delivery."
FedEx aims to begin testing the robot in select markets this summer.

Each limited-edition timepiece is hand engraved using the classic Japanese technique, "yasuri-me," an intricate process that entails each of the band's center links with a rasp finish similar to that done on the tang of a sword. The band is complemented by a deep violet color and recrystallized Arc Ion Plating (AIP) on the case, and the bezel boasts an upscale, mirror-like finish.
The special edition MR-G watch will be on display at Baselworld from March 21-26 at the Casio booth, located in Hall 1.1 B71 & 67.
The MRGG200GA-1A features a Cobarion® bezel with a flawless mirror-finish, and a scratch-resistant sapphire crystal with non-reflective coating, elevating its overall clarity and brilliance. The watch's face also boasts a watered pattern and a unique bladed edge to symbolize a Japanese sword, while the band is hand engraved by historic Japanese artisan Sadanobu Gassan, whose heritage dates back to the 12th century.
The new model also comes equipped with G-SHOCK's top-of-the-line technical capabilities including Multi-Band 6 technology for three-way time sync to allows for accurate time keeping, as well as Tough Solar technology that provides self-charging capabilities. The watch also has Bluetooth technology to connect with the MR-G Connected smartphone app, which allows for self-adjusting time changes as one travels between time zones in addition to tracking solar charge, checking signal reception frequency and more.
The timepiece also comes equipped with G-SHOCK technology such as:
CASIO's shock-resistant G-SHOCK watch is synonymous with toughness, born from the developer Mr. Ibe's dream of 'creating a watch that never breaks'. Over 200 handmade samples were created and tested to destruction until finally in 1983 the first, now iconic G-SHOCK hit the streets of Japan and began to establish itself as 'the toughest watch of all time'. Each watch encompasses the 7 elements; electric shock resistance, gravity resistance, low temperature resistance, vibration resistance, water resistance, shock resistance and toughness. The watch is packed with Casio innovations and technologies to prevent it from suffering direct shock; this includes internal components protected with urethane and suspended timekeeping modules inside the watch structure. Since its launch, G-SHOCK has continued to evolve, continuing to support on Mr. Ibe's mantra "never, never give up." www.gshock.com
