CCTV+: A Piece of Song Porcelain from Baishe Kiln



BEIJING, Nov. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — “When the rain ceases and the clouds roll out, the color of the sky is just the perfect color for the bluish-white porcelain.” This is how the ancient Chinese described the bluish-white porcelain of the Song Dynasty. Carrying a bluish-white color with a delicate appearance, it shines over one of the most prosperous eras in China’s history, the Song Dynasty. Nanfeng, Jiangxi, is featured in “A Piece of Song Porcelain from Baishe Kiln”. It was remembered as a thousand-year-old town comparable to the porcelain capital. However, nowadays, only a rare few have seen its beauty.

Baishe kiln began operating in the early years of the Northern Song Dynasty and flourished from the middle of the Northern Song Dynasty to the middle of the Southern Song Dynasty. At that time, the porcelain from Baishe kiln featured a pristine white color, delicate smoothness, thin body, along with a dense and firm  texture. It was given a  special name of “Baishe White Porcelain.” The porcelain glaze is crystal clear, with a soft luster and a color between blue and white. Its exquisite gentleness gives it the reputation of “Baishe jade.” According to the Chronicles of Nanfeng County, “In the Song Dynasty, Baishe built several porcelain kilns under the official supervision looking like hills.” There are still 32 ancient kiln sites of the Song and Yuan Dynasties in Nanfeng Town. The kiln accumulations stretch for more than 2,500 meters. It is not difficult to imagine the spectacular scene of flames leaping high into the sky when hundreds of kilns were in operation at the same time  in the ancient times. In Nanfeng today, the lost memories of Baishe kiln are being pieced back together bit by bit. Baishe porcelain brings people back to the glorious and romantic time, unveiling the culture and style of the era bygone.

The waterways extending in all directions and the  busy  docks in Jiangxi have also made Jiangxi an important source  for Chinese ceramics. Porcelain, created in a kiln and shipped to the world all year round, dives into our hearts as epics of human lives, songs of Chinese porcelain, and pictures of the civilization, building the Chinese dream of the Jiangxi porcelain art.

SparkCognition Event Showcased School Safety and AI Delivering Real Time Threat Assessment to Prevent Active Shootings




AI company brought school administrators, safety professionals, and parents together to demonstrate live how AI can leverage existing cameras to reduce campus incidents

AUSTIN, Texas, Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — SparkCognition, a global leader in artificial intelligence (AI) software solutions perfected for business, today hosted an event showcasing how visual AI provides real-time threat assessment, actionable insights, improved situational awareness, and automated responses to address safety concerns in schools, “School Safety: Preventing School Shootings with AI.” This event brought school administrators, educators, safety professionals, law enforcement, and communities together at SparkCognition’s 50-acre AI proving ground, HyperWerx. Attendees saw live demonstrations of the technology in action and heard from school leaders who have deployed visual AI to proactively identify threats and safeguard children, faculty, and staff members.

“This past school year the United States saw 193-gun related incidents on school grounds, the largest in over two decades,” said Todd Peters, Head of School Safety at The Adelson School. “AI can be a fundamental game changer when it comes to providing a proactive approach to school safety and a means to prevent simple accidents to tragic incidents.”

Peters was joined by Travis Motal, Director of Secondary Education at Liberty Hill ISD (TX) to share the challenges their schools face, and the role AI will play in augmenting their safety protocols. Additionally, attendees saw live demonstrations, showcasing how AI can tap into existing camera infrastructure and drones to detect, alert, and automate responses to threats, unknown individuals or vehicles, open doors, and other issues across the campus.

Earlier this year, SparkCognition introduced Visual AI Advisor, an end-to-end computer vision platform that automatically detects pending threats, identifies security breaches, and manages developing situations. It instantaneously sends alerts, sounds alarms, and engages in designated actions such as initiating lock-down procedures. Visual AI Advisor can run multiple use cases on a single camera, including weapon and fire detection and license plate and facial recognition. It operates 24/7 while maintaining school privacy requirements.

“SparkCognition is committed to helping prevent school safety incidents by leveraging its powerful AI platform and extensive implementation experience to combat the mounting threat of active assailants,” said Amir Husain, Founder & CEO of SparkCognition. “Today’s conversations at HyperWerx demonstrated how AI-powered sensors and alerting mechanisms can create situational awareness and enhance the physical security of campuses. We look forward to engaging with our educators and law enforcement officials to enable safe, supportive educational environments in which our future generations can thrive.”

Jackery At Ten: A Decade of Solar Generator Innovation




FREMONT, Calif., Dec. 7, 2022 /PRNewswire/ — Celebrating its 10th anniversary, Jackery, a pioneer and global leader of innovative portable power and green outdoor energy solutions, shares a look back at how its innovative and reliable solutions change the way people access green electricity and how clean energy has been seamlessly integrated into every facet of users’ lives, from outdoor recreation, education, healthcare, and disaster rescue.

“Over the past decade, Jackery has built a wide range of flagship line-ups and sold millions of units worldwide, accompanying users across the globe to explore the world. We are extremely proud of our achievements which are the result of the dedication and hardworking of our teams as well as the support of our global customers, who have also inspired and motivated us with their unique stories. We are fortunate to have them on our side as we power up a future of green living,” said Head of Brand Department.

Power up the Nature

Designed for flexibility, portability, and sustainability, Jackery’s products are created for green off-the-grid living. For years, Jackery equips its products with the latest innovations and state-of-the-art features to cover the needs of van-lifers and outdoor enthusiasts, coupled with a weather-proof design, fast-charging, and large capacity to keep them connected and plugged in while on the go.

Extending the brand’s mission to empower global actions to protect the environment and reduce carbon emissions, Jackery participated in a campaign in 2021 through which the company provided solar generators for forest rangers to facilitate their effort to safeguard the natural environment while bringing public attention to those frontline workers who dedicate their lives to guarantee the integrity of eco-system. This year, Jackery has also teamed up with National Forest Foundation, vowing to plant 10,000 trees in the flight against climate change.

Power Up the Dream

The exploratory spirit is deeply rooted in Jackery’s brand DNA, and with which, the company pioneers green solutions and bring them to the people in need, allowing users to enjoy the benefits of renewable energy. Last year, Jackery partnered with the van-lifer family @Amunches to embark upon a journey into a sweeping desert in Colombia’s La Guajira peninsula and came to a school of an impoverished community where access to electricity is a luxury.

Using Jackery’s solar generator to power up a project, the Amunches family shared with the local students about their adventures across the Americas in the hope of fostering their dreams. The children’s eyes lit up in awe and excitement, with huge smiles appear on their faces the moment the projector was switched on. They listened with curiosity and rapt attention and stared at the colorful screen that transported them to different worlds filled with wonders and possibilities, as well as inspirations to bring changes to their homeland.

Power Up the Hope

A former gymnast who was the winner of the All-Japan Rhythmic Gymnastics Championships, Mr. Eiji Setoda started to perform acrobatics to help heal the national wound caused by the 2011 Tōhoku earthquake. After the COVID-19 pandemic plunged Japan into another period of uncertainty that depressed the entire country, he started a tour across the country as a street performer, taking Jackery’s solar generator with him to power his performance as he tried to bring hope to a wider population in this difficult time.

Inspired by Mr. Setoda, Jackery Japan has launched a series of initiatives and joined hands with local partners to strengthen Japan’s emergency response mechanism. In 2020, the company donated 10 solar generators to bolster local disaster prevention measures through the “JackeryCare” initiative. The following year saw Jackery tie up with JVC Kenwood to develop solar generator products that address the challenges in disaster rescue missions. In 2022, Jackery joined the Social Emergency Management Alliance (SEMA), pledging to provide portable power solutions in case of unexpected disasters.

“This 10-year journey brings us to a new starting point from which we will continue to spearhead green technology to bring more innovative products to our global customers. We will stay true to our goal of making renewable energy accessible for all, facilitating the global clean energy transition by reducing people’s reliance on fossil fuels,” said Head of Manufacture Department of Jackery.

About Jackery
